Hammonds Physically Threatened by Federal Agents for Speaking Out?

Yesterday I received a phone call from Dwight Hammond (74). He said that he was very afraid for his life and for mine as well. He informed me that federal agents contacted his attorney. They told Dwight's attorney that if Dwight and Susie did not end all communication with Ammon Bundy, that they "would detain the Hammond's early for federal prison and that they would transfer pain to the Hammond family". He further said, that he believed "they would bring misery to the whole family".

Steven Hammond's attorney also confirmed that federal agents contacted him and hinted a raid on the Hammonds home if they did not end all communication with Ammon Bundy.

On Thursday November 19th, Harney County Sheriff, David Ward, informed me that federal agents indicated to him that if the Hammond's continued to speaking out, that they may raid the Hammond's home and detain them early for federal prison. I informed the Sheriff that it was his duty to make sure that did not happen.

How You Were Tricked Into 'Supporting' The Syrian War

It started in 2006 when the US decided it wanted to oust Syrian President Assad and started laying the ground work. This was proven by leaked Saudi Arabian intelligence cables hosted on Wikileaks. Julian Assange said of the leaks:

“That plan was to use a number of different factors to create paranoia within the Syrian government; to push it to overreact, to make it fear there’s a coup…so in theory it says ‘We have a problem with Islamic extremists crossing over the border with Iraq, and we’re taking actions against them to take this information and make the Syrian government look weak, the fact that it is dealing with Islamic extremists at all.”

ISIS Coverup: US Centcom Accused Of Lying To President, Congress, Public About Airstrikes, Ground Fight

“...there is the possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared Salafist Principality in eastern Syria (Hasaka and Der Zor), and this is exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime, which is considered the strategic depth of the Shia expansion (Iraq and Iran).”

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it as many times as it takes for the naive, largely aloof American public to catch on: the quote excerpted above is the smoking gun when it comes to Washington’s ISIS “strategy.”

Texas family struggles to keep health insurance – and survive cancer

UnitedHealth, the country’s largest health insurer, said on Thursday that it is considering leaving the exchanges in 2017 because of what its CEO described as unsustainable losses.

“I think the carriers have lost money on the exchanges in general but lost money in particular with PPOs and I think the thing that’s been the biggest problem for them is allowing people to have access to out-of-network providers,” said Kathy Hempstead, director of coverage issues at the Foundation.

American Self-Hatred

The recent revelation that the United States and its mysterious pseudopresident Barack Obama actually finance Middle Eastern terrorists while simultaneously professing to be fighting them creates a painful emotional cramp in the minds and hearts of conscientious American citizens as we reluctantly realize our totally untrustworthy leaders and their insincere doublespeak pose a lethal danger to ourselves and others.

It then becomes impossible to love our country when we know our so-called leaders are lying through their teeth when they tell us they must kill many thousands of innocent people in order to protect our own families. To remain silent about this hypocrisy can only create one thing in our own minds — self hatred, along with a persistent loathing of ourselves and our own cowardly silence that permits these megacrimes against humanity to keep happening.

American-allied nations are secretly helping ISIS to grow - US Colonel Ann Wright

The US invasion of Iraq in 2003 came with many warnings that it would lead to a dire consequences for the whole region. A decade later, and the brutal jihadists from ISIS are dominating the north of the devastated country. Now, the US is again mulling the possibility of sending its army to Iraq once more - but would that actually help solve the issue? From where does the money come for the Islamic State? Is America obliged to save Iraq after what it's done to that nation? We ask these questions to American Colonel and former diplomat Ann Wright on Sophie&Co today.

A state of emergency has been declared in Crimea after power lines carrying electricity from Ukraine were reportedly sabotaged.

The peninsula was left in the dark after the transmission towers were toppled on Saturday.

Generators are supplying power for vital services like hospitals and communications.

But 1.9 million of Crimea’s two million-strong population remain without electricity.

Crimea was annexed by Russia in 2014 after a referendum.

Russian media are saying the pylons in the Kherson region bordering Crimea were blown up by Ukrainian nationalists.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Crimea was not "annexed" by Russia; when the Crimean leadership understood that the legitimate government of duly-elected Yanukovich no longer existed, through a referendum, they requested to be allowed to return to the Russian Federation. When the referendum went positively, Russia agreed to allow Crimea to join the Russian Federation.

But this blackout worries me, because if Poroshenko is mad enough to attempt some military action against Crimea; Russia would have to respond militarily, and, in light of the fact that the US government, the EU, and the IMF were all behind the putsch which put him in power last year, we are looking at another potential flashpoint for military conflict with Russia.

For a company that is long accustomed to getting its way in just about every jurisdiction on planet Earth, the constant obstructionism of the Mexican justice system is beginning to wear thin for Monsanto. But the company and its rivals still have one ace up their sleeves, a weapon that has the potential to obliterate Mexico’s judicial resistance in one fell swoop: the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the world’s biggest trade agreement that was recently signed by the governments of 12 Pacific-rim nations, including Mexico.

Buried deep within the 5,000-plus page deal is the Intellectual Property Rights charter which, among many other sinister things, requires all 12 TPP countries to join a number of global intellectual property treaties. One of those treaties is the International Convention for the Protection of New Varieties of Plants 1991 (UPOV 91), an agreement that elevates the rights of seed companies over farmers’ rights.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mexican farmers have every right to be deeply concerned about GMO corn.

As reported at http://www.morningliberty.com/2012/10/09/top-10-monsanto-epicyte-sterili... in October of 2012:

Scientists have created the ultimate GM crop: contraceptive corn. Waiving fields of maize may one day save the world from overpopulation. The pregnancy prevention plants are the handiwork of the San Diego biotechnology company Epicyte, where researchers have discovered a rare class of human antibodies that attack sperm. By isolating the genes that regulate the manufacture of these antibodies, and by putting them in corn plants, the company has created tiny horticultural factories that make contraceptives. "We have a hothouse filled with corn plants that make anti-sperm antibodies," said Epicyte president Mitch Hein. Still unknown is who funded this original research (UPDATE, major funding was from the USDA) . But once the Epicyte gene, which irreversibly sterilizes humans who eat it, was patented, Monsanto and DuPont bought the company in order to "commercially exploit" the Epicyte gene. That means they had a customer for this product! Who is buying this gene and where is it being used? After ten years, how many GMO products have included this human-sterilization gene? One of the last of Tom Clancy's books that he authored alone was called "Rainbow Six", and the villain of the book was a group of money-junkies who decided that Earth was too "polluted" with the poor and wanted the Earth to go back to nature (except of course for their own personal palaces). Art mirrors life? We know that ultra-rich like Melinda Gates openly support forced population reduction in the apparent belief that having a lot of money gives them the right to play God with the rest of humanity. Personally I think that if the population is to be reduced, that we start with such self-declared deities, to be followed by those who would condemn millions to death in wars to make a fast buck. But of greater concern is this. The Epicyte gene was in corn down in San Diego more than ten years ago. And we know know that modified genes can jump species through pollination, which is why the weeds once killed by Glyphosate are now as "Roundup Ready" as the GMO crops themselves. And we know that these modified genes can also jump from the original GMO frankenfood onto the natural varieties. Many people are already familiar with the case of Percy Schmeiser, who did not want GMO crops on his farm but discovered to his horror that pollen blowing from a neighboring field had contaminated his crops. When he complained, Monsanto sued him for "Patent Infringement" and demanded Schmeiser pay a technology fee to use his own saved seeds, since they included Monsanto's patented genes, and Schmeiser knowingly was replanting them. Schmeiser eventually persuaded the courts that he had never wanted Monsanto's products and the courts ruled against Monsanto, who eventually agreed to pay the costs to decontaminate Schmeiser's farm. Other farmers were not so lucky in the courts, and lost their farms to Monsanto in patent infringement lawsuits. The point is that for ten years, pollen from corn containing the Epicyte gene has been blowing around Southern California farms (along with everywhere else the Epicyte gene was "commercialized"). How far it has spread is impossible to determine without an extensive genetic survey of the food supply. That it may already be global cannot be ruled out. But there is no question that birth rates are in decline. While the corporate media may blame this birth rate drop solely on the economic problems (and there is no question this is a factor) there is also no question that doctors were noticing a sudden uptick in fertility problems back in 2008 before the economic explosion even happened. And the sudden reverse in US birth rates actually occurred in 2007, again before the economic crash took hold. Were economics the only factor, one would expect a smoother transition in birth rates as birth rate slowed, then plateaued, then went into decline, accelerating as the economy worsened. But in the above graph we see a sudden and dramatic reversal, suggesting some other cause. Note the drop is especially heavy in the Hispanic population, whose traditional diet relies very heavily on corn.

How NSA continued to spy on American citizens' email traffic – from overseas

Newly revealed documents (not from Snowden this time) show that the NSA has continued to collect Americans' email traffic en masse using overseas offices to get around curbs introduced domestically.

Shortly after the September 11 attacks, President Bush authorized the NSA to collect bulk metadata on emails sent by Americans (although not the content) to help The War Against Terror (TWAT). The surveillance was authorized by the US Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, which mostly rubberstamped such requests.

But the collection was stopped in 2011, the NSA said, although it still monitored emails from Americans to people outside the nation's borders. However, a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit started by The New York Times against the NSA's Inspector General has uncovered documents showing that the NSA carried on collecting domestic data.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Intelligent people understand that one cannot say ,in any email correspondence, anything that one would not want shouted from the rooftops, globally.

And the bad guys already have encryption in place that the Feds cannot penetrate, or are going low tech to communicate.

No matter which party is in office, the efforts to completely eviscerate the Constitution and Bill of Rights continue, with impunity.

YouTube Terminates PINAC Account for “Violent” Police Videos, the Latest Shutdown on Independent Media

On October 27, YouTube terminated the main channel of Photography is Not a Crime, claiming the channel posts too many videos that are “violent or graphic content that appears to be posted in a shocking, sensational, or disrespectful manner.”

Because of that, PINAC lost hundreds of videos it had posted on the channel.

The videos found on the PINAC YouTube channel are typically also aired by national and local television news stations now that police violence has become national news.

However, PINAC’s account was suspended in August for airing footage of the Virginia reporters getting shot to death, which many news stations chose not to run.

From the Afghan Mujahideen to the so-called Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS), extremist groups have been used as geopolitical tools by the West for decades.

War On Reality: Another Cop Has Faked an Ambush on Himself – and Threw In a Bomb Threat Too

It would seem that police propaganda regarding the War on Cops is not sufficiently fooling the public, evidenced by a bizarre trend of cops staging attacks on themselves. Sadly, for cops like Bryan Johnson of the Millis police department, these wannabe warrior cops are not as skilled in theatrics as they are in oppression. Johnson, a likely admirer of infamous ambush-staging scumbag “G.I. Joe” Gliniewicz, sparked a huge – and taxpayer costly – manhunt after he radioed in being fired upon from a maroon pickup truck that supposedly fled into the woods. He then intentionally destroyed his police cruiser after shooting into it. The subsequent pursuit of his imagined attacker terrified local residents who were forced to stay inside.

Corporate media bigotry of ‘Muslims’ could easily apply to ‘Americans;’ same history as Jews, Blacks, Protestants, Catholics, women, gays, lefties

*hyperlinks/video live at source*

bigotry: habitual state of mind with obstinate, irrational, and/or unfair intolerance of ideas, ethnicities, or beliefs different from one’s own. Etymology: “religious hypocrite.”

In the Now’s 2-minute video compilation of CNN orchestrating blame of all Muslims for terrorism:


Earth’s history includes bigotry against religions, ethnicities, women, gays, and even left-handed people. This uncontested history is so well-documented and uncontested that I won’t bother to provide links. Because bigotry lives in irrational language, the same attacks on Muslims the above video reveals from corporate media could just as easily be applied to another group: “Americans.”

To begin, you do not belong here. You are spoiled, self-important, narcissistic, infantile brats, unprepared for college work, in which you likely have little interest. In the past, students of your age were almost adult and trying to learn how to be adults. You are different, alas. Your chief interest for four years will be in avoiding adulthood.

For Activists, Information Is Not Free

Just because it’s called the Freedom of Information Act, doesn’t mean the information is free. In fact, if you’re an activist or a journalist trying to investigate the police, chances are it’s going to cost you, as reporters discovered last year when they tried to obtain documents pertaining to the police killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson.

In their efforts to report the story, reporters were being charging exorbitant fees for records that are supposed to be released to the media for free. Missouri has an open records law, yet according to the Associated Press, news agencies were being charged thousands of dollars, “nearly ten times the cost of a government employee's salary" to retrieve government records.

Paul's list of dangerous countries includes Syria, Iran, Russia, Iraq, Afghanistan, and of course the obligatory 'Palestinian Territories.' Guess which country is omitted from Paul's list??

Congress Wants To Seize Your Passport For Unpaid Taxes

Sometimes you just have to stand in awe at the level of corruption and incompetence in government.

Case in point, the new highway bill in the Land of the Free. And, trust me, you’ll love this.

The latest version of the highway bill is called the “Developing a Reliable and Innovative Vision for the Economy Act.”

And yes, they abbreviate it as the DRIVE Act.

Another gem buried in the 864 pages of the bill is a provision that allows the government to revoke your passport if they believe that you owe more than $50,000 in federal tax.

There will be no judicial review, and no due process. You don’t get to go in front of a judge first to have a fair and impartial hearing over whether or not the government’s tax allegations are accurate.

The language in the law is very clear: they can simply revoke your passport if you owe them money in their sole discretion.

The Return of Korematsu

Last week’s terrorist attack in Paris provoked a backlash among American politicians against the Obama administration’s plans to resettle Syrian refugees. They rushed to protect their constituents from potential ISIS members who could be lurking among the 10,000 refugees that the Obama administration hopes to admit into the country over the next year.

It’s natural enough to wonder, in response to the murky reports of a Syrian passport found at one of the bombing sites, about the United States’ own procedures for screening Syrian refugees. It turns out that refugees chosen for resettlement are exhaustively vetted by law-enforcement and intelligence agencies, with an average processing time of 12 to 24 months, before setting foot on U.S. soil.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

While I condemn the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II, as a great moral blot on this country's history, and believe in thorough vetting of ALL refugees who come here, there is a question that must be asked: why is Obama so completely keen on bringing in so many Syrians, when there are not even enough jobs for people who were born here?!/

What will the financial ramifications to this country's budget, where the US treasury is nearly broke?!?

The only thing I can think of (and be aware: most of these refugees are being located in Republican states) is that when they are ultimately eligible to vote (and in states with no voter ID laws, that could be ...tomorrow), this country will have another block of solidly Democratic voters, grateful for their opportunity to be here.

Yes, this is a very cynical evaluation of what is going on with Obama's obsession to relocate Syrian refugees here; but it is nonetheless absolutely correct.

House Republicans on Monday unveiled legislation that would decriminalize a broad swath of corporate malfeasance, a move that injects white-collar crime issues into the thus-far bipartisan agenda on criminal justice reform.

The House bill would eliminate a host of white-collar crimes where the damaging acts are merely reckless, negligent or grossly negligent. If enacted, it would make it more difficult for federal authorities to pursue executive wrongdoing, from financial fraud to environmental pollution.

Department of Justice spokesman Peter Carr blasted the legislation in a statement provided to HuffPost, saying it “would create confusion and needless litigation, and significantly weaken, often unintentionally, countless federal statutes,” including “those that play an important role in protecting the public welfare … protecting consumers from unsafe food and medicine.”

– From the Huffington Post article: House Bill Would Make It Harder To Prosecute White-Collar Crime

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are absolutely two very different levels of "justice" in American culture; one for the very rich, who are given every opportunity to become even more rich, no matter how immoral their methods can be, and the other for the very poor and desperate, who can get arrested and thrown in jail for stealing a loaf of bread for their families.

And supermarket managers, please; as we approach Thanksgiving next week, and will soon be into the Christmas, Chanukah, and Kwanza seasons, please be a little merciful and compassionate. As many Americans stuff their faces with the usual delicacies for these holidays, there are families which can barely afford what it takes to make just a bare minimum meal.

Just please, go up the chain of command in your corporation, and ask what might be done for families in need. The food banks (and I know this, because Mike and I participate in two here on Oahu) are barely able to keep up with the needs of their clients.

I'm just sayin'.......

Don't let that cop search your car! The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 1998 That A Traffic Stop Doesnt Authorize a Vehicle Search

I saw it recently at a taco place. This woman in the photos was pulled over by a CHP officer, who started immediately rummaging through the woman's vehicle while she obediently stood at the cops car and watched.

France's 3-month state of emergency lets govt censor the web

While extending the emergency to three months, the bill will also extend new powers to the police, ostensibly for preventing terrorism through increasing the legal room available for them to make searches and seizures, as well the ability to place citizens under house arrest.

French advocacy group La Quadrature du Net described the extension as "unjustified" by any reason "other than to circumvent the principle of separation of powers. Since the beginning of the emergency last Saturday, many searches are conducted for administrative cases under common law, with no connection to the fight against terrorism, and foreshadow a police state that the extension of three months the risk of trivialising".

French security forces have conducted over 400 raids since last Friday's terrorist attacks, and have made 60 arrests.

Meet The Family That Just Spent Half Its Annual Income Paying For Obamacare

Not a week passes without some incremental revelation showing precisely what happens when Congress passes a bill just to see what's in it.

Now we can add one more thing that "was in it": soaring deductibles, which give the fake impression of contained, low all-in costs... until one actually needs expensive medial help (and these days there is no other kind).

Obamacare's Latest Casualty: Largest Health Insurer On Colorado Exchange Abruptly Collapses

According to AP, the health insurer announced Friday that the state Division of Insurance has de-certified it as an eligible insurance company. That's because the cooperative relied on federal support, and federal authorities announced last month they wouldn't be able to pay most of what they owed in a program designed to help health insurance co-ops get established.

Obama Promised Healthcare Premiums Would Fall $2,500 Per Family; They Have Climbed $4,865

Employer-based health insurance premiums climbed 4.2% this year for family plans, according to an annual Kaiser Family Foundation report. That’s up from 3% the year before.

Since 2008, average family premiums have climbed a total of $4,865.

The White House cheered the news, saying it was a sign of continued slow growth in premium costs.

“We will start,” Obama said back in 2008, “by reducing premiums by as much as $2,500 per family.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The White House is cheering because as premium costs go up, so do the tax revenues ... they think.

The problem is that Americans are so broke that to pay for the health insurance premiums, they have to forego something else, so the actual net change to tax revenues is actually nil! Government and corporate policy is still operating in a fantasy world where there is plenty of wealth here in the hands of the people, if they can only figure out another way to take it from us.

The Stunning "Explanation" An Insurance Company Just Used To Boost Health Premiums By 60%

It may not have been easy for Blue Cross Blue Shield to admit to their clients their premiums are set to rise by 60% due to Supreme Court-mandated tax known as "Obamacare" but it would have been the right thing.

Instead, in justifying the boost to the two-month medical premium from $867 to $1.365, the health insurer decided to use the following excuse: "With advances in medical technology, prescription drugs and ways to treat injuries and illnesses, Americans are living healthier lives. [i.e., living longer] Because of these changes, we must adjust your premium to stay in line with increased costs."

In other words, if you want lower costs, and avoiding 60% healthcare inflation, just do everything in your power to prevent Americans from "living healthier lives."

In Latest Obamacare Fiasco, Most Low-Income Workers Can't Afford "Affordable Care Act"

The insurer failed because it would fail to be profitable, in the process burning through $23 million in taxpayer-funded loss that would not be repaid. "Taxpayers are on the hook for millions of dollars in loans given out to the CO-OP, money that will likely never be repaid," U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner said in a statement after the announcement.

And while many had anticipated from the beginning that the Obamacare tax was merely a subsidy for the large insurance companies (or rather, their public shareholders), few had expected a far more sinister consequence of the "Affordable" care plan: that the employer mandate would turn out to be unaffordable for a vast majority of low-income workers - the very people who were supposed to benefit from it.

...In chapter 27, TPP provides for a new executive-legislative body whose decisions will usurp national and state-local legislative functions and representative democracy — already under serious attack everywhere by corporate money and other initiatives. And in chapter 28, TPP provides for a new kind of global corporate court system, run by corporate-friendly lawyers and hirelings who will make decisions which cannot be reviewed, appealed or challenged in existing court systems of any TPP member country. TPP ‘courts’ will take precedence over US and other national court systems, already under heavy attack by corporate forces vigorously promoting arbitration as a means by which to bypass the formal judicial system in the US.

‘Former’ colonial nations NOT ‘heartbroken’ over Paris 136 innocent victims because they allow daily gruesome deaths of 20,000 children from preventable poverty they’ve promised to save since 1969

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

US president Obama hypocritically claims again to be “heartbroken” over apparently 136 innocent Parisian deaths last week; an apparent false flag attack to “justify” offensive and unlawful war on Syria. Last year, Michelle Obama used the US president’s weekly address to justify US military entering Nigeria (history/context here), pretending that her husband and she cared about 276 Nigerian girls claimed to be kidnapped. In 2013, US “leadership” shed crocodile tears over 426 dead Syrian children, while all evidence shows they were murdered by US terrorist minions to justify offensive military attack on Syria.

Knowing what we know about the American police state, I can see how this could easily become a slippery slope to charging parents for every “bad” behavior a kid exhibits toward another kid, including recent stories like the one where a school threatened a nine-year-old boy with sexual harassment charges for writing a love note to a crush in his 4th grade class. Girls who aren’t politically correct enough because they don’t want transgender students in their locker room. A kindergartner being labeled “racist” for the “hate speech” of calling another student a “broccoli head”. This list goes on and on.

Police Civil Asset Forfeitures Exceed All Burglaries in 2014

Between 1989 and 2010, U.S. attorneys seized an estimated $12.6 billion in asset forfeiture cases. The growth rate during that time averaged +19.4% annually. In 2010 alone, the value of assets seized grew by +52.8% from 2009 and was six times greater than the total for 1989. Then by 2014, that number had ballooned to roughly $4.5 billion for the year, making this 35% of the entire number of assets collected from 1989 to 2010 in a single year. According to the FBI, the total amount of goods stolen by criminals in 2014 burglary offenses suffered an estimated $3.9 billion in property losses. This means that the police are now taking more assets than the criminals.

The tragedy in Paris last Friday has regrettably been employed as a catalyst for renewed calls by governments in western Europe and even in the United States for more curtailment of personal liberties. Those who accept the trade of liberty for safety have argued in favor of less liberty. They want government to have more authority to intrude upon the daily lives of more innocent people. Their targets are the freedoms of speech and travel and the right to privacy. Their goal is public safety, but their thinking is flawed.

But Clinton called for further US special forces to be deployed to Syria too, reiterated her call for a no-fly zone and demanded an “intelligence surge” to allow the airstrikes against Isis to be stepped up.

“The United States has been conducting this fight for more than a year; it’s time to be begin a new phase and intensify and broaden our efforts,” Clinton told the Council on Foreign Relations in New York.

Speaking less than three days after coordinated terrorist attacks in Paris killed 129 and injured hundreds more, Mr. Brennan complained about “a lot of hand-wringing over the government’s role in the effort to try to uncover these terrorists.”

What he calls “hand-wringing” was the sustained national outrage following the 2013 revelations by Edward Snowden, a former National Security Agency contractor, that the agency was using provisions of the Patriot Act to secretly collect information on millions of Americans’ phone records.

Nine Ways to Stop Terrorism

In the wake of the barbaric Paris terror attacks, everyone is arguing over what we should do to stop further terrorism.

Some say we need more war against Islamic countries … or more spying … or more crackdowns on our liberties.

In reality – despite what the talking heads may say – the methods for stopping future attacks are well known …

Defenders of current government policy say: “we have to do something to stop terrorists!”

Yes, we do …

But we must also stop doing the 9 things above which increase terrorism. We have to stop “throwing new bodies in the river.”

But the powers-that-be don’t want to change course … they gain tremendous power and influence through our current war on terror strategies.

For example, the military-complex grows rich through war … so endless war is a feature – not a bug – of our foreign policy.

Torture was about building a false justification for war.

Mass surveillance is about economic and diplomatic advantage and crushing dissent.

Hillary Clinton’s War Record – 100% For Genocide

While Bernie Sanders may be tired of hearing about Hillary Clinton’s “damn emails,” the recent scandals that have resulted from her Capitol Hill hearings, combined with the virtually non-existent investigation into the State Department funding of terrorist organizations have gone only a short distance in demonstrating the lengths to which Hillary Clinton has acted as the supporter and executioner of warfare since the first day she assumed any national position in government.

In addition to her history regarding the Syrian and Libyan crises, it should never be forgotten that Hillary Clinton has supported virtually every military conflict launched during and since her husband’s own disastrous tenure as President.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And remember; through the Clinton Foundation, Bill and Hill were raking in the dough from countries which wanted to see Saddam Hussein deposed. As reported at http://www.mcclatchydc.com/:

Four oil-rich Arab nations, all with histories of philanthropy to United Nations and Middle Eastern causes, have donated vastly more money to the Clinton Foundation than they have to most other large private charities involved in the kinds of global work championed by the Clinton family. Since 2001, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates gave as much as $40 million to the Clinton Foundation. Moreover, the level of Arab support for the Clinton Foundation, which occurred during the time Hillary Clinton was a U.S. senator, was seeking the Democratic nomination for president against Barack Obama, and was serving as secretary of state, fuels questions about the reasons for the donations. Were they solely to support the foundation’s causes, or were they designed to curry favor with the ex-president and with a potential future president? Mideast nations favor contributions to Clinton Foundation Between 2001 and 2014 Middle Eastern countries gave $18 million to $50 million to the Clinton Foundation, accounting for 1.4 to 4 percent of contributions over the period. In contrast, the same nations gave about $6.82 million to the International Committee for the Red Cross, accounting for less than 1 percent of the $11.2 billion in contributions the organization received.

Also, her close ties with the military/industrial complex are well documented: as reported at http://usuncut.com/ on October 6th of this year:

Iraq Veteran Will Hopkins, who served in Iraq for two years, asked Hilary Clinton on the TODAY show if we can trust her to keep us out of any more unnecessary wars. A visibly nervous Hopkins asked permission to read from his note cards so he didn’t forget anything, to which Clinton replied, “No, go right ahead.” “I served in Iraq as an Army Infantryman in 2004 and 2005,” Hopkins began. “I lost friends, a year of my life and I suspect I will be coping with the experience as long as I live. You gave a famous, rather rousing speech in support of the war powers act which allowed President Bush into Iraq,” Hopkins continued, as Clinton nodded slowly. The speech in question was delivered on October 10, 2002. In the speech, then-senator Clinton said, “I urge the President to spare no effort to secure a clear, unambiguous demand by the United Nations for unlimited inspections.” The USA invaded Iraq five months later. Hopkins went on to directly confront the former Secretary of State. “Given your history and your close ties to elements within the military industrial complex, what assurances can you provide that companies and individuals who profit from war and militarism will not have undue influence in the Clinton Administration?” Speaking carefully, Hillary said that she was “aware” that millions of lives had been needlessly affected. ”I’ve said that my vote to give President Bush the authority was a mistake. I misjudged what he would do with it,” Clinton admitted to Hopkins. Hillary then claimed that she has learned to be “wary” about entering conflict from her previous mistakes, citing her recent involvement in the negotiations with Iran.

IF one is looking to elect the Warmonger in Chief incarnate, that candidate will be Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Martin Armstrong Rages "It's Time To Knock Off The BS About 'Surveillance For Terrorism'"

The worldwide collection of phone calls, emails, text messages and our total loss of privacy is all about taxes – NOT terrorism.

With all this power and the demand that encryption be outlawed, not any of this surveillance has stopped one terrorist act. There was the Boston bombers, two kids using cell phones. They didn’t catch that either. Then there was the two guys dressing up as women who attacked the NSA itself. They didn’t know about that. Then Charlie Hebdo, that too was a surprise. Now we have an all out assault on civilians in Paris carried out by 3 suicide squads and again they were clueless.

This surveillance does not work because they are really monitoring the people for taxes or they would not be storing everything forever.

Trucking Trade group SBTC Challenges the NRA to Stand Up for Truckers' Gun Rights

Trucking Industry group Small Business in Transportation Coalition (SBTC) (SmallTransportation.org) has introduced Michael's Law, which would allow truckers to carry firearms nationwide. The law is named after 31-year-old truck driver Michael Boeglin, who was brutally murdered, shot (five times) to death on June 26, 2014. The assailant, who was never caught, then lit Mike's Freightliner truck on fire with him in it. Mike had been waiting outside a shipper at a nearby abandoned gas station because the corporation, like many, forbid drivers to wait for the load on their property. He left behind his wife Ashley who was four months pregnant with their first child. The NRA has shockingly opposed and worked against MICHAEL'S LAW, the straightforward, very simple 136- word proposal. (Gee wonder why?) The NRA has been rightly derided as a sellout organization for years by gun rights advocates.

Mayor Wonders If We Need WWII-Style Internment Camps After Paris Attacks

A Virginia mayor opposed to aiding Syrian refugees in the wake of the Paris attacks floated the idea of World War II-style internment camps Wednesday, stating that the "threat of harm to America" is just as high as it was back then.

David Bowers, the Democratic mayor of Roanoke, said in a statement that he has asked local agencies to suspend any assistance to Syrian refugees "until these serious hostilities and atrocities end, or at the very least until regarded as under control by U.S. authorities, and normalcy is restored."

"I'm reminded that President Franklin D. Roosevelt felt compelled to sequester Japanese foreign nationals after the bombing of Pearl Harbor," he added, "and it appears that the threat of harm to America from Isis is now just as real and serious as that from our enemies then."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Mayor Bowers: the internment of Americans of Japanese origin was one of the most horrific, disgusting, and immoral chapters of American history during World War II, and should never be repeated.

And here is the larger problem: once the decision is made to start these internment camps, it will not only be Syrians who will be detained; it will also be peaceful, logical people who understand that these wars of aggression are fought for the financial gains of major corporations, and express their opinions publicly on blogs like this one.

Internment camps will quickly devolve into "reeducation camps", where nothing but the official governmental propaganda will be tolerated, and those with the courage to question or speak out, will be punished harshly.

Think of China's treatment of political dissidents under Mao, and you will get the picture very quickly.

Mayor Bowers, is THIS your vision of the American future?!? I sure as hell hope not!!

Protests rage as Minneapolis officers are named in shooting death of unarmed black man Jamar Clark

Minnesota officials on Wednesday named two Minneapolis policemen involved in the fatal shooting of an unarmed black man as chanting demonstrators surrounded a nearby police station and, according to officers, threw bottles and rocks.

Clark is the latest in a series of unarmed black people to be killed at the hands of police in the United States over the past several years, fueling protests nationwide and rekindling a national civil rights movement.

Attempts by Reuters to reach the officers for comment were unsuccessful on Wednesday.

Community activists have said Clark was unarmed and handcuffed when he was shot shortly after midnight on Sunday. The examiner’s office said he died from a gunshot wound to the head at 9:25 p.m. CST on Monday at the Hennepin County Medical Center.

Bob Kroll, a spokesman for the union representing Minneapolis police officers, told Reuters in a brief statement that Clark was never handcuffed and “was disarming the officer” during the altercation.

UnitedHealth May Quit Obamacare Markets in Blow to Health Law

The U.S.’s biggest health insurer is considering pulling out of Obamacare, a month after saying it would expand its presence in the program.

UnitedHealth Group Inc. is scaling back marketing efforts for plans it’s selling this year under the Affordable Care Act, and may quit the market entirely in 2017, because the business has proven to be more costly than expected. It’s an abrupt shift from October, when the health insurer said it was planning to sell coverage in 11 new markets next year, bringing its total to 34. The company also cut its 2015 earnings forecast.

A pull-back would deal a significant blow to President Barack Obama’s signature domestic policy achievement. While UnitedHealth has been slower than some of its rivals to sell Obamacare policies since new government-run marketplaces for the plans opened in late 2013, the announcement may indicate that other insurers are struggling, said Sheryl Skolnick, an analyst at Mizuho Securities.

“Once he realized what was happening, that they weren’t giving his toy back, he immediately starts balling, just tears streaming down his face, crying,” David Zilka said. “…Taking a toy from a five year old doesn’t enhance national security.”

The double-edged sword of cyber warfare

Kind of in your face aren't they!

One week after the Israeli army formally recognized cyber weapons as a fourth dimension of warfare, alongside land, air and sea, the defense minister on Wednesday sang the praises of digital weapons, saying that they can attack and conquer enemy assets without leaving a trace.

“Cyberspace enables the attack of another nation state in offensive action, even reaching victory without leaving any fingerprints, even if it is suspected,” Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon said Wednesday at the fifth annual Cyber Security Conference at Tel Aviv University, according to a conference statement. “We are already there; we are not talking about some distant future. We have experienced this in Israel’s day-to-day actions against its enemies.”

The reference to offensive action was somewhat rare and it came just two weeks after Israel was fingered as a suspect in a cyberattack against participants in the nuclear negotiations with Iran.

The Paris Attacks - À quoi bon?

There are basically two ways to view the terror attacks in Paris: they were, either, as French President François Hollande says, “an act of war… committed by a terrorist army, DAESH, a jihadist army,” – or they were something else.

Given the fact that the fraudulent “War on Terror” is an Israeli construct dating back to the 1970s, the first suspect would have to be Israeli intelligence.
Why would they do that?
To advance the Israeli strategy known as the “War on Terror” – and destroy Syria in the process.

Flashback: Did Money Seal Israeli-Saudi Alliance?

According to a source briefed by U.S. intelligence analysts, the Saudis have given Israel at least $16 billion over the past 2 ½ years, funneling the money through a third-country Arab state and into an Israeli “development” account in Europe to help finance infrastructure inside Israel. The source first called the account “a Netanyahu slush fund,” but later refined that characterization, saying the money was used for public projects such as building settlements in the West Bank.

In other words, according to this information, the Saudis concluded that if you can’t beat the Israel Lobby, try buying it. And, if that is the case, the Saudis have found their behind-the-scenes collaboration with Israel extremely valuable. Netanyahu has played a key role in lining up the U.S. Congress to fight an international agreement to resolve a long-running dispute over Iran’s nuclear program.

When the Clinton Foundation wanted to clear the air swirling around all the omissions and errors it made in reporting its cash flow, it did what any stand-up organization would do: it sought a disinterested third party to review its tax returns. -- But, like so many other interwoven threads linking the Clinton Foundation’s many conflicts of interest, that third party turns out not to be so disinterested: DLA Piper, the firm that did the work, also happens to be a Clinton Foundation donor.

Princeton Students Take Over President’s Office, Demand Erasure Of Woodrow Wilson

Black Lives Matter activists at Princeton University have taken over the president’s office and say they won’t leave until the school acknowledges former U.S. president Woodrow Wilson as a racist and renames all buildings currently honoring him on campus. (Apparently no one is MORE angered by the fact he is the one that signed us back over to private central banks in 1913...)

There is absolutely nothing to stop us from discussing what kind of immigration policy we need to have, while the border is being secured.

The Government Safety Device That Kills You : “If It Saves Even One Life…”

Defective Takata air bags have injured and killed at least 130 people so far that we know about – and the potential mayhem could involve literally millions of people. Because millions of “defective” air bags (34 million, to be precise) have been installed – per befehl – in cars made by a number of major car brands since the 2004 model year. These cars are in circulation – and probably many more people will be injured and killed before 34 million of these steering wheel Claymores can be defused.

The Crackdown Begins: Europe Just Passed "Strict Controls To Make It Difficult To Acquire Firearms"

And while we are awaiting for a full blown European version of the Patriot Act, we can say that the second part of the forecast just came true, because this morning The European Commission announced it had adopted a package of measures to strengthen control of firearms across the European Union and meant simply to make it "difficult to acquire firearms."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

France already had strict gun control, which is why none of the victims of the "terror" attack could shoot back! But those laws did not prevent the "terrorists" from acquiring military weapons!

Things That Can And Cannot Be Said

Every nation-state tends towards the imperial—that is the point. Through banks, armies, secret police, propaganda, courts and jails, treaties, taxes, laws and orders, myths of civil obedience, assumptions of civic virtue at the top. Still it should be said of the political left, we expect something better. And correctly. We put more trust in those who show a measure of compassion, who denou­nce the hideous social arrangements that make war inevitable and human desire omnipresent; which fosters corporate selfishness, panders to appetites and disorder, waste the earth.

FLASHBACK - France Moves to Make ‘Conspiracy Theories’ Illegal by Government Decree

Political elites and super-bureaucrats are worried. It’s becoming harder to control their fragile, constructed consensus reality. This is intellectual terrorism, perpetrated by the state.

A history stitched together by lies and cover-ups, political assassinations, slight-of-hand false flag deceptions, secret societies, dual loyalties and stolen fortunes – this has been the exclusive privilege of organized crime and the ruling elite for centuries.

Putting aside history’s ‘big ticket’ items though, the real reason for this authoritarian trend is much more fundamental. By knocking out their intellectual competition, political elites and their media moguls hope to minimalize, and thus eliminate any alternative analysis and opinion by applying the completely open-ended and arbitrary label of “extremist” to everyday speech and public discourse. They want to wind back the clock, where a pre-internet, monolithic corporate media cartel held a monopoly on ideas.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Truth needs no law to support it. Truth is self-evident to all. Truth withstands re-examination. Truth survives questions. Throughout history, from Galileo to Zundel, only lies and liars have resorted to the courts to enforce adherence to dogma.

Tennessee GOP leader: Round up Syrian refugees, remove from state

A top Tennessee Republican lawmaker believes the time has come for the National Guard to round up any Syrian refugees who have recently settled in the state and to stop any additional Syrian refugees from entering Tennessee.

"We need to activate the Tennessee National Guard and stop them from coming in to the state by whatever means we can," said House GOP Caucus Chairman Glen Casada, R-Franklin, referencing refugees.

"I’m not worried about what a bureaucrat in D.C. or an unelected judge thinks. ... We need to gather (Syrian refugees) up and politely take them back to the ICE center and say, 'They’re not coming to Tennessee, they’re yours.' "

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That would be an interesting moment: States' National Guard units against the US Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines (which Obama most probably will not hesitate to send in) whose mission will be preventing any further dislocation of Syrian refugees.

I would like to hope that President Obama is cognizant of the reality that there is an election next year; pulling this kind of stunt would not do well for the Democratic Party, particularly in the so-called "swing states".

But I can rather well imagine that other states' lawmakers may well be having the same thoughts as has Mr. Casada.

U.S. Government Moves To Exploit Paris Terror Attacks To Ban Privacy

Last week, the British Prime Minister told Parliament that he wants to “ensure that terrorists do not have a safe space in which to communicate.”

Strong encryption refers to the act of scrambling data in such a way that it cannot be understood by anyone without the correct key or password — even law enforcement with a warrant, or the software manufacturer itself. It’s used in some of the most popular tech products in the world, including the iPhone, WhatsApp messenger, and Facebook.

A highly respected cryptographer and security expert is warning that David Cameron’s proposed ban on strong encryption threatens to “destroy the internet.”

– From the post: Top Computer Security Expert Warns – David Cameron’s Plan to Ban Encryption Would “Destroy the Internet”
You didn’t think the surveillance state would give up that easily did you? Of course not.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All the draconian actions taken by the US government, relative to freedom and communication, and every bit of US government surveillance, did not stop the attack in Paris.

And I would like to remind those in DC that doing more of the same thing, over and over the same way, yet expecting a different outcome, is one of the most classical definitions of insanity.

NYT Editorial Slams “Disgraceful” CIA Exploitation of Paris Attacks, But Submissive Media Role Is Key

A truly superb New York Times editorial this morning mercilessly shames the despicable effort by U.S. government officials to shamelessly exploit the Paris attacks to advance long-standing agendas. Focused on the public campaign of the CIA to manipulate post-Paris public emotions to demonize transparency and privacy and to demand still-greater surveillance powers for themselves, the NYT editors begin:

It’s a wretched yet predictable ritual after each new terrorist attack: Certain politicians and government officials waste no time exploiting the tragedy for their own ends. The remarks on Monday by John Brennan, the director of the Central Intelligence Agency, took that to a new and disgraceful low.

Calif. teen sues cop who threw her face-first to the ground hours after she graduated high school

18-year-old Gabbi Lemos was brutally assaulted by a police officer after celebrating her graduation from high school at her home. Hours after the party, Deputy Marcus Holton and six other officers with the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Department arrived uninvited at the home and began aggressively interrogating people who were outside.

Before approaching the house, Holton noticed that Gabbi’s sister Karli was sitting in a parked vehicle outside with her boyfriend and he began to question them. At one point during the interrogation, Holton opened Karli’s door and attempted to physically rip her out of the vehicle.

Gabbi’s mother Michelle Lemos then came out and told her to go in the house. Next, according to the lawsuit, Holten “bolted around the family and without a word caught Gabbi from behind the neck in a chokehold, lifting her small body off the ground several feet before throwing her face-first onto the driveway.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, this is what "to protect and serve" looks like in California; and again, it is not just California which is having this epidemic of police violence; it is everywhere in this country.

Approaching Global Insanity

What's really at stake if the world gets conned again and gives in to USI, Israel & NATO, supposedly under the global silence of the UN ­ will be nothing less than the conscription of every NATO “nation” into an all out and probably nuclear war, which will more than likely end in a nuclear conflagration which this planet cannot survive.

That 'war' will directly INVOLVE the lives of every man woman and child,
that is living on this planet today.

Every nation must close their borders, rise up and send back all the undocumented, to wherever they came from ­ immediately.

If this is not done, together with OUTLAWING

The Free Thought Project has been covering the murder of 19-year-old Zachary Hammond by Officer Mark Tiller since the incident occurred on July 26th. Three weeks ago the heartbreaking dashcam video was finally released, which shows a maniacal Tiller ruthlessly take the life of this teenager over a suspected bag of weed.

According to the Post and Courier, “the Hammond case was far from unusual” in South Carolina.

A campus cop at Spartanburg Methodist College shot to death an unarmed college student driving a car—including twice in the head—after responding to a report of a vehicle break-in. Of course, the cop claims that 20-year-old Delvin Simmons was trying to run him over, but there is no bodycam or dashcam video to refute that claim.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

De-escalation, and "walking back" a situation so it does not erupt in violence, do not appear to be tools in Americas' police officers' "tool kit" and this is not just about South Carolina, but about the nation as a whole.

One has to wonder if "the word" has come down from the highest Federal and State authorities that it is OK assassinate unarmed suspects with impunity, because it reinforces the power of The State over the individual.

The other factor, of course, is the IDF training of American police, which makes those police treat American citizens just the way the IDF treats the Palestinians.

New bill would delay Freedom Act; let NSA to keep storing Americans’ phone data

A Republican senator from Arkansas has submitted a bill that would extend the NSA’s ability to collect Americans’ phone metadata by more than a year. Tom Cotton insisted the last week’s terror attacks in Paris proved the value of such spying activities.

Cotton introduced his bill, titled the Liberty Through Strength Act, on Tuesday, which proposes postponing the “transition timeline in the USA FREEDOM Act until after January 31, 2017.”

Man Holding Protest Sign Removed From Clinton Event In Dallas

That sign was apparently in reference to her testimony before Congress in January of 2013 regarding the September 11 attacks in Benghazi that left four Americans dead. “We had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or because of guys out for a walk one night and decided to go kill some Americans? At this point what difference does it make, Senator?” Clinton asked Sen.

Lawmaker warns that FCC rules could crush political websites

For Rep. Marsha Blackburn, who's leading the charge to stop "net neutrality" regulations, the possibility that political content on the web, like the Drudge Report or Fox News, could be regulated is a major motivation.

"When it comes to the content side, I have the sense that this is the very beginning of the net neutrality debate," the Tennessee Republican told the Washington Examiner. "I've been very concerned about net neutrality turning out to be the Fairness Doctrine of the Internet, and having that applied to websites."

Heck, the corporate media has abandoned the fairness doctrine long ago (along with truth and accuracy).

The Greatest Threat to Campus Free Speech is Coming From Dianne Feinstein and her Military-Contractor Husband

There is no shortage of American pundits who love to denounce “PC” speech codes that restrict and punish the expression of certain ideas on college campuses. What these self-styled campus-free-speech crusaders typically — and quite tellingly — fail to mention is that the most potent such campaigns are often devoted to outlawing or otherwise punishing criticisms of Israel. The firing by the University of Illinois of Professor Steven Salatia for his “uncivil” denunciations of the Israeli war on Gaza — a termination that was privately condoned by Illinois Democratic Senator Dick Durbin — is merely illustrative of this long–growing trend.

"I think we need to restore the metadata program, which was part of the Patriot Act," the former Florida governor said during an appearance on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."

"It expires in the next few months. I think that was a useful tool to keep us safe and also to protect civil liberties," Bush added.

Intelligence agencies pounce on Paris attacks to pursue spy agenda

Government officials are wasting no time in attempting to exploit the tragedy in Paris to pass invasive anti-privacy laws and acquire extraordinary new powers that they have wanted for years. In the process, they are making incredibly dishonest arguments and are receiving virtually no pushback from the media.

Absent any actual information or evidence so far about intelligence failures leading up to the deplorable terrorist attack in Paris, pundits spent the weekend speculating that Edward Snowden and surveillance reform were to blame for the fact that the attack went undetected. Then on Monday, in an epic episode of blame shifting, the CIA director, John Brennan, reportedly said privacy advocates have undermined the ability of spies to monitor terrorists.

Flashback: Rice University Jewish Studies Professor calls police over youtube 9/11 video

A Houston man who sent a Rice University professor a youtube link via e-mail was contacted by police investigators shortly thereafter. The video, entitled 'History They Don't Teach You in School', covers the history of false flag terrorism, Israeli Zionists, and Israeli involvement in the September 11, 2001 attacks. It was e-mailed to Rice University Jewish Studies professor Rabbi Shira Lander, Ph.D, after the man had seen fliers advertising her Jewish studies anti-semitism class. Rabbi Lander had also recently given a public lecture series on the same topic. The man exchanged a few e-mails with the professor, one of which simply stated "I picked up a flyer advertising your Anti-semitism class. The flyer contained the question 'Why did some blame Jews for 9/11?' So I thought you might like to know why." The man was contacted by a Sgt.with the Rice University Police Department Criminal Investigations Division in Houston shortly thereafter.

Despite the intelligence community’s attempts to blame NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden for the tragic attacks in Paris on Friday, the NSA’s mass surveillance programs do not have a track record—before or after Snowden—of identifying or thwarting actual, large-scale terrorist plots.

To France from a Post-9/11 America: Lessons We Learned Too Late

the terrorists in our government won on 9/11 and in all the years since

Nov 17 11:09


No outside force can end freedom in America. The only force that can end freedom in America, is the American government itself. This is the main lesson of the 15 years since 9/11.

The notion that we must preemptively give up our freedoms to protect our freedoms is so remarkably infantile and irrational you’d think almost no one would fall for it. Yet fall for it they do.

On the other hand if you are a serious person and want to examine where the real threat to American freedom and liberty resides, look no further than Washington D.C..

From Foreign Policy:

CIA Director John Brennan said Monday he suspects the Islamic State is currently working on more terrorist plots against the West following Friday’s attack in Paris that killed at least 129 people and injured hundreds more. He also criticized new privacy protections enacted after Edward Snowden’s disclosures about U.S. government surveillance practices.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Giving up yet more rights, and acquiescing to yet more surveillance will not make the American people any more safe.

The one thing this government could do, to enhance the safety and security of Americans at home or abroad, would be to stop mucking about in other peoples' countries, enabling corporations to expropriate resources to which they have absolutely no moral right.

Of course, this..... would be logical.

51 arrested in protests after black man shot by Minneapolis police

Hundreds of protesters shut down northbound Interstate 94 through Minneapolis Monday night reacting to the shooting of a black man by Minneapolis police. In all, 51 people were arrested.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation reports protesters were on the freeway, attempting to block traffic. The shutdown first started around 7 p.m.

Several area metro police departments were on scene attempting to control the situation. According to the Minnesota State Patrol, protesters were given four warnings to disperse or be subject to arrest.

Shortly before 9 p.m., authorities began arresting protesters. The state patrol later said 43 adults and eight juveniles were arrested and will be charged with unlawful assembly and pedestrian on freeway, both misdemeanors.

The state patrol says numerous cars were damaged in the protest. At least on trooper was punched by a protester, and that person fled the scene.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder if police, nation-wide, have been given their marching orders to create such flagrant incidents with these shootings, ultimately to create the kinds of riots which would result in the suspension of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and the imposition of martial law.

Or, possibly, if the IDF training given to so many police around the country, has made police look at all citizens, charged or not, as the IDF views Palestinians.

The UK Prime Minister has seized on the tragic deaths and injuries in Paris as an excuse to terroise Britons into allowing him to pass hisSnoopers Charter, a sweeping, badly written surveillance bill that willend security research in the UK, cause Internet bills to soar, and riddle critical software with back-doors, threatening anyone who reveals these vulnerabilities, even in court, with a year in prison.

It's a disgusting, cynical move that uses innocents' blood as the missing ingredient for achieving policy goals that could not be attained through democratic debate. Just as the Patriot Act's hasty, ill-considered provisions were rammed through in the smoke of the World Trade Center, Cameron would trump evidence, expert advice and good sense with partisan grandstanding.

Profile of a False Flag by Stephen Lendman

Evidence known so far strongly indicates false flag responsibility for Friday’s Paris attacks. They’re usually identifiable the way fingerprints ID people.

They’re strategically timed, most often for what’s planned to follow. Post-9/11 horrors are well documented. America declared still ongoing war on humanity.

The 9/11 incident provided a treasure trove of giveaways showing what happened was other than the official narrative. The most obvious was how could a handful of terrorists outwit America’s 16 intelligence agencies, including sophisticated NSA eavesdropping on anyone or anything suspicious back then?

No evidence implicated Al Qaeda. Nothing to this day – yet claims persist. Without verifiable hard facts, they’re specious.

The official 9/11 story was beginning-to-end contradictions and Big Lies – still supported by media scoundrels as gospel despite volumes of evidence proving otherwise.

FBI Uses Counter Terrorism Authority to Infiltrate and Surveil Peaceful Protests . . . Again

“For a decade, the FBI flagrantly abused its counter-terrorism authority to conduct a widespread surveillance and monitoring operation of School of Americas Watch (SOAW), a nonviolent activist organization founded by pacifists with the aim of closing the U.S. Army’s School of the Americas (now renamed) and ending the U.S. role in the militarization of Latin America,” reports the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund (PCJF).

The PCJF’s conclusion is based on hundreds of pages of documents that the group obtained under the Freedom of Information Act. PCJF’s report and the FOIA documents upon which it is based are available here.

This, of course, is not the first time that FBI has been caught turning the sights of its formidable counter terrorism apparatus on domestic political protests. Recent areas of FBI counter terrorism activity include the Occupy Wall Street Movement, and the Freddie Gray police brutality protests in Baltimore. Which raises the question: did Cointelpro ever end?

Paris Shooting: 10 Ways It Looks Like A Hallmark False Flag Op

The Paris shooting of November 2015 which just occurred on Friday 13th November bears many of the telltale signs of a false flag operation. Now more than 48 hours later, we have some clues that the New World Order manipulators are up to their old tricks again – which are getting very predictable by now. Here are 10 signs that the Paris shooting is yet another false flag attack designed to scare the common citizen (in France and everywhere), demonize Islam, provide “reason” for Governments at G20 and around the world to waste more money and take more liberty fighting terrorism, provide justification for the French Government to increase surveillance, and provide France and NATO with an excuse to escalate violence against Syria.
