Newsday Editor: Carve Hate Speech Out Of First Amendment, Hold Websites Responsible If Users Post Hate Speech

It's perfectly reasonable to be angered and horrified at ignorant, racist, bigoted hate speech. It's perfectly reasonable to be concerned about those who spew such idiocy. But it's something else entirely to argue that because you dislike it, others should not be allowed to speak their beliefs. That a newspaper editor would advocate for such things seems particularly bizarre and counterproductive.

Former Treasury Official: The West Is Collapsing!

Everything in this country is becoming Third World – nothing functions anymore. – Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, Shadow of Truth, in reference to the completely rigged financial markets and failed democracy in the United States

Based on the reaction overnight by the stock market futures to the EU/Greek situation – the S&P 500 futures are down 25 pts/1.2% – I would hazard the opinion that the zombies on CNBC were slighly off-base when they asserted last week that a Greek default was already “priced into the market.”

This idiocy displayed on CNBC is emblematic of the extreme degree to which propaganda has infected our media. But it also highlights the degree to which the American public has willingly turned a blind eye to the Orwellian fog that has completely enveloped our system.

Oh, The Lies We Are Fed

What is happening is a convergence of events unlike the world has ever seen. The President’s Working Group on Financial Markets, also known as the Plunge Protection Team, has kept the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 on a continually higher moving plane for over five years. If you just look at a chart for either of these two indices you will see an approximate 30 degree angle moving from left to right. This is unnatural; this is unsustainable.

Truth is a Crime Against The State

The Western presstitutes have succeeded in creating a false reality for insouciant Americans and also for much of the European Union population.

A sizable percentage of these insouciant peoples believe that Russia invaded Ukraine and that Russia is threatening to invade the Baltic States and Poland. This belief exists despite all intelligence of all Western governments reporting that there is no sign of any Russian forces that would be required for invasion.

The “Russian invasion,” like “Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction and al Qaeda connections,” like “Assad of Syria’s use of chemical weapons against his own people,” like “Iranian nukes,” never existed but nevertheless became the reality in the Western media. The insouciant Western peoples believe in non-existent occurrences.

In other words, just to state the obvious noncontroversial fact, the Western “news” media is a propaganda ministry from which no truth emerges.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The "Whoreporate news networks", in print, or electronically, only give you the narrative the US government wants you to hear or see, which is why you are many times shielded so carefully from the stark realities creating public policy about which you need to know, and understand.

Unfortunately, at this point in my life, the country of which I am most deeply frightened, in terms of making some sort of ham-fistedly, pig-headedly wrong policies which will impact Americans badly (either by declaring a new war, against a truly non-belligerent country which is no threat to us), or embracing fiscal policies which will lead to a smash and burn of the US economy's small businesses, is my own government.

Merkel Warns of Europe's Collapse: 'If Euro Fails, So Will the Idea of European Union'

‘Hi, I’m Uncle Sam and I’m a War-oholic’

War on drugs. War on poverty. War in Afghanistan. War in Iraq. War on terror. The biggest mistake in American policy, foreign and domestic, is looking at everything as war. When a war mentality takes over, it chooses the weapons and tactics for you. It limits the terms of debate before you even begin. It answers questions before they’re even asked.

When you define something as war, it dictates the use of the military (or militarized police forces, prisons, and other forms of coercion) as the primary instruments of policy. Violence becomes the means of decision, total victory the goal. Anyone who suggests otherwise is labeled a dreamer, an appeaser, or even a traitor.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ever noticed that when the US declares war on ANYTHING (poverty, drugs, terror, etc.), the problem gets worse rather than better?!?

And the government of the US has a severe problem on its hands; after the lies about Saddam's Weapons, the lies used to trick us into invading and occupying Afghanistan, and the general state of lying about the economy, the American government has zero credibility with the American people.

We can no longer believe anything this government says, and have become (peacefully and logically) vocal about that.

About the only thing the US government has now is to engineer a massive false flag attack, and use it as the excuse to suspend the Constitution and Bill of Rights and declare martial law.

White supremacists sign up for military to train for race war — with little pushback from Pentagon

After the horrific massacre at Charleston’s historic black church, Americans are slowly realizing the threat posed by white supremacist and neo-Nazi movements. But few know that their presence has grown within one of the most powerful institutions in America: the US military.

According to the FBI, there are hundreds of white supremacists in the US army or in the veteran community. Some analysts even estimate the number is in the thousands. In America, 203 white supremacist “extremist cases” investigated by the Bureau from 2001 to 2008 involved veterans. The problem hasn’t gone away. Neo-Nazi veteran Wade Michael Page attacked six worshippers at the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, in 2012.

I spent a number of years investigating how neo-Nazis and white supremacists had infiltrated the US military, with very little push back from the Pentagon, which was desperate to keep the supply of troops flowing for the occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is pure codswallop to make Americans feel very afraid...very afraid indeed; to the point of doing everything their government tells them to, unthinkingly and unquestioningly.

If, in fact, this person actually did any research whatsoever, where are the numbers, please?!?

Notice that there is no hard evidence to back up anything this person alleges in this article.

IF this is not "research", then it is pure, grade-A bovine excrement propaganda, engineered to scare Americans.

And please remember; just as is the case with so many other mass casualty shooters in the US, Dylann Roof, the accused here, was on heavy psychiatric medications, which have a known history of causing homicidal or suicidal thoughts.

Please see the article here:

http://www.wnd.com/2015/06/big-list-of-drug-induced-killers/

Of course, demanding that pharmaceutical companies remove these dangerous substances from their product list would just cut into their bottom line too greatly, so that never happens. And in MY world, any drug company executive who allows such a drug to be sold, knowing its high risk, should be tried, convicted and jailed for a very long, and not in a Club Fed. But: I digress.

It has appeared to both Mike and me that someone in this country wants to see race hatred leading to some kind of a race war, and I have to pull back a bit, and ask "cui bono"?!? Who benefits?!?

Well, you have an Administration on the ropes in Washington, with its star player for the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton, tanking on potential charges of corruption, gross mismanagement of the State Department, and outright lying to Congress on Benghazi, you start to feel cornered. And cornered politicians are both desperate and dangerous.

Except for the money junkies, the economy is in a mess; just ask anyone whose job was recently offshored/outsourced.

The benefit for such an administration from a national series of race riots would be to give Obama the excuse to suspend the Constitution and Bill of Law, and invoke martial law, and perhaps postpone the next election...indefinitely.

Nothing could be said about the US business-shredding Atlantic or Pacific trade deals, without imprisonment, fines, or both.

Nothing could be said about upcoming potential wars with Iran, China, and Russia.

And nothing could be said about Charlie Rangel's legislation, still sitting in the Armed Services Committee, to reinstate the draft, and draft our young women, as well as our young men.

I am noticing that on the feed from Faux News, we are being "prepped" for some kind of horrific terror incident to happen over this weekend, either domestically, or against American interests.

This could well be another "justification" for President Obama's gleeful suspension of the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

How “trade” deals destroy economies

“Trade” deals which originate in US Congress are often disastrous for economies at home and abroad.

These “trade” deals favor corporations and are devastating to people at large.

Central Bank of Central Banks Says “The World is Unable to Fight Next Global Crash”

The BIS report described the threat of a new bust in advanced economies as a “main risk”... now suffering the costs of persistent ultra-low rates... which could “inflict serious damage on the financial system”

Could this be YOU? Everyday Americans, including trained professionals and bosses, reveal how easily they fell into masses of debt - and have been left with no escape

They are Americans from all walks of life and every corner of the country - but are united in debt.

The people pictured in the portraits below have all laid bare their personal finances - revealing the sometimes-crippling amounts of money they owe.

One business owner borrowed $250,000 to fund a laundromat, and is now struggling to shift it - while others have been struck by illness, fraud and what they admit is 'frivolous spending'.

Others owe more modest amounts - often from college fees and credit cards - but have varying levels of optimism about how they will ever pay it back.

All are featured in The Debt Project, a series of photographs by artist Brittany Powell, aiming to investigate how people come to borrow and owe such life-changing amounts of money. Each is accompanied by a hand-written note.

TPP Trade Agreement Sleight of Hand: It Was Soooo Easy to Distract The American People With A Confederate Flag Flap and then Sell Us Into Slavery Again!

while America was distracted by a contrived, pre-planned Confederate flag distraction, the U.S. Congress forfeited the entire American economic future by quietly passing so-called “fast-track authority” which will allow President Obama to approve the TPP “free trade” agreement.

The TPP, as you may have heard, outright surrenders U.S. sovereignty to multinational corporations, handing them total global monopolies over labor practices, immigration, Big Pharma drug pricing, GMO food labeling, criminalization of garden seeds and much more. In all, the TPP hands over control of 80% of the U.S. economy to global monopolists, and the TPP is set up to enable those corporations to engage in virtually unlimited toxic chemical pollution, medical monopolization, the gutting of labor safety laws and much more.

‘We don’t need EU permission’: Greek parliament ratifies bailout referendum

As an equal member of the EU, Greece does not need to ask permissions from anyone to let the Greek people speak and have their voices heard, PM Tsipras told his parliament, promising that the state’s sovereignty and future will be decided via referendum.

Referendums have been used all across Europe as a way for people to directly express their will and have their voices heard, and Greece is fully in its right to conduct one PM Alexis Tsipras said during a late-night debate in parliament.

New NSA whistleblower suspected behind French president surveillance leak

American and European security agencies are reportedly investigating a possible new whistleblower behind the WikiLeaks publication that exposed alleged NSA spying on top French officials, including three presidents.

The website on Tuesday released what appear to be classified NSA documents alleging the US agency spied on three successive French presidents: Jacques Chirac, Nicolas Sarkozy and incumbent François Hollande.

Responding to the report, Hollande called such activities unacceptable, while the French justice minister said WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden could be offered symbolic asylum in the country. US President Barack Obama assured his French counterpart the US hadn’t spied on him.

'Nein Danke' - smaller German firms see U.S. trade deal as threat

Martina Roemmelt-Fella, who owns a small, family-run turbine manufacturer in Bavaria, should be a cheerleader for a trade deal between Europe and the United States that promises to ease the flow of goods and services across the Atlantic.

But instead she fears the Trans Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) being hammered out between Brussels and Washington will give too much power to big multinationals at the expense of small companies like hers.

"The proposals are being negotiated behind closed doors with the help of 50 or 60 big corporates," said Roemmelt-Fella, whose firm is one of the thousands of small and medium-sized companies known as the 'Mittelstand' that account for 89 percent of Germany's exporters and form the backbone of the economy.

End of days for trolls

Maybe some of the columns in today's paper will make you a little angry. Maybe you'll just harrumph and turn the page. Maybe you'll slam your teacup down and get up for a brisk walk around the couch. But, if your preferred method of releasing frustration is to take it out on us online, you better fill your boots.

Online trolling is about to become illegal.

For the benefit of the less-tech savvy folk, trolling is defined by the Urban Dictionary as "being a prick on the internet because you can".

But good news. Parliament is days away from putting a ban on this online intimidation. So, to draw attention to the line and the sand and the drawing of said line in the sand, a few MPs this week read out to a camera some choice "mean tweets" they'd received.

Get-to-bed texts make for daycare dreams

Parents are getting texts on Sunday nights reminding them to put their children to bed early so they wake up in time for pre-school.

A new initiative to ensure South Auckland children attend early childhood education features the personalised bedtime reminder texts, health advice and lists of activities their children can take part in over the holidays.

Trials have proved so successful there are plans to extend it throughout the country.

Ministry of Education Early Learning Taskforce project manager Jilly Tyler said the initiative had boosted early education enrolments in Weymouth where it had been running for the past year.

"Since March 2014 enrolments across the seven centres have increased from an average of 70 per cent to 99 per cent. One centre doubled its attendance," she said.

In Case You Are Still Confused About Who Is In Charge

The spectacle is astonishing. The European Central Bank, the EMU bail-out fund, and the International Monetary Fund, among others, are lashing out in fury against an elected government that refuses to do what it is told.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What is essential for everyone to understand is that banking is not a science. It is a religion with a bunch of made-up rules to benefit the clergy, meaning the bankers. It only works because we have all been brainwashed into believing that banking is as sacrosanct as any other church, and those ink and paper tickets represent something real.

Once human-kind realizes that banking is a manufactured fantasy world designed to exploit humans as slaves (as are the other religions), we take an important step towards freedom.

The Delphi Declaration - On Greece and Europe

Many readers of the European and American press must be confused about what actually is happening in the negotiations between Greece (Alexis Tsipras and Yannis Varoufakis). The European Troika (the IMF, European Central Bank and European Council now object to the name and want to be called simply “the Institutions”) have stepped up their demands on Syriza. What is called “negotiation” is in reality a demand for total surrender. The Troika’s demand is to force Syriza to go back on the campaign promises that it made to voters who replaced the old right-wing Pasok (“socialist”) and Conservative New Democracy coalition, or else simply apply the austerity program to which that coalition had agreed:cutbacks in pensions, deeper austerity, more privatization selloffs, and a tax shift off business onto labor. In short, economic suicide.

Whistleblowers could have citizenship revoked under proposed laws

Whistleblowers with dual citizenship who speak out on Australia’s national security – including those involved in allegations that Timor-Leste’s cabinet room was bugged – could face having their citizenship revoked under proposed laws.

A bill introduced to the federal parliament by the immigration minister, Peter Dutton, on Wednesday enhances the power of the immigration minister to revoke or initiate a renunciation of citizenship for conduct deemed to relate to certain terrorism offences. The new bill seeks to strip only dual nationals of their citizenship.

The proposed section 35A of the bill also outlines that citizenship will be lost automatically for Australians who are convicted of particular offences.

While some of those offences are related to terrorism, they also include commonwealth property offences. Legal experts have warned the government has overreached in applying the revocation powers to these kind of offences.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to the Abbott government: please, don't go there.

This is such a ham-fistedly, pig-headedly, paranoicially draconian piece of legislation that I hardly know where to begin.

But of the following, I am reasonably certain; this legislation, if passed, will have an utterly chilling effect on free speech in your country, and could, as an ultimate result, lead to a "brain drain" of Australia's best and brightest to a degree which Australia has never experienced before in its history.

The number of very sharp Australian citizens who will start to renounce their Australian citizenship, and look for less fascistic places to work and live, will leave you gobsmacked.

When is Free Speech Unfree? When it involves Australia's Abbott Government

Let’s get a few things straight. Australia, thin-lipped conformist society that it is, possesses minimal freedoms on that marked concept of liberal democracy called freedom of speech. For those who laud the Racial Discrimination Act, free speech is more than a racial matter. For those who think there is some implied right to communicate on political matters, free speech is more than politics. At its core is the value, not of tolerance, but tolerating intolerance. At best, Australian free speech is an bite size entrée dressed up as a weighty main meal.

$200 Million Went to House Members to Pass Fast Track – Here's Who Took the Cash

TPA passed with a mere 219-211 vote with only 218 needed to pass. The real shocker comes from the amount of money each Representative received for a yes vote. In total, $197,869,145 was given to Representatives for a yes vote where as $23,065,231 was given in opposition.

John Boehner (R-OH) received $5.3 million for a "yea" vote and was the highest paid legislator.

Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) received $2.4 million for his "yea" vote.

Paul Ryan (R-WI) received $2.4 million for a "yea" vote and came in at the third highest paid legislator.

Pat Tiberi (R-OH) follows Paul Ryan, coming in the fourth spot having received $1.6 million for his "yea" vote.

The fifth highest paid legislator is somewhat of a "hero" in comparison to others. Representative Steny Hoyer (D-MD) received $1.6 million for a yes vote and only $282,710 for a no vote. Despite his high contribution from those in favor of TPA, he still voted a solid nay.

On Wednesday, Congress passed another piece of anti-boycott legislation, potentially even more important in its impact, as part of a trade deal with the European Union’s Trade Promotion Authority.

GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL ADMITS DELETING TEXT MESSAGES AFTER EX-IM BANK FOIA REQUEST

In today's consequence-less world - where only the poor are punished - news that a top official at a controversial U.S. export finance agency deleted text messages sent within days of the 2014 midterm elections after a watchdog group filed an open records request for the messages, will come as no surprise whatsoever. The 'excuse' given by Ex-Im Bank's chief of staff Scott Schloegel - because as we saw yesterday, there is no accountability - he "deleted, by mistake, the messages on my phone for the period in question." Most transparent administration ever...

With funding for the Ex-Im Bank is set to expire at the end of the month, and Congressional Republicans indicating that that they will allow it to do so, effectively shutting down the agency, the controversial crony capitalism creating agency will continue to make headlines. But as Free Beacon reports, the details may never actually come out as to just what this group did...

Webmaster's Commentary:

Washington Cathedral dean on Confederate flags: ‘It is time to take those windows out’

The dean of Washington National Cathedral has called for two stained-glass windows featuring Confederate flags to be taken down from the Gothic edifice, in yet another instance of institutions reconsidering countless tributes to the Southern cause.

“It is time to take those windows out,” said the Very Rev. Gary Hall in a Thursday (June 25) announcement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I find it amazing that Charlie Hebdo can publish intentionally offensive and insulting cartoons about Muslims and Christians and it is called free speech, but there is a demand to erase the flag of Southern Secession because somewhere (we are told) someone's feeling might be hurt over events that happened before any of us were born.

Why Banks Rob Depositors: “Because That’s Where the Money Is”

With the formation of groups like the Orwellian “Better Than Cash Alliance,” plans are underway to eliminate cash altogether and leave the public with little choice but to keep all their money in a digital account. While using only electronic money may seem to be more "efficient," it makes it possible for authorities to track all of your financial dealings AND even allow banks to impose a Negative Interest Rate Policy (NIRP) upon you.

Without measures to prevent block them, account holders with cash balances might choose to withdraw and hoard paper currency. That would be the simplest way to escape negative interest rates.

But with funds trapped inside of bank accounts, bankers could simply deduct the negative rate charge from each customer’s balance. (Question: Would not such "digital cash balance robbery" be just a modernized version of what Willie Sutton was doing back in the day?)

County councillors had been due to decide whether or not to approve the UK’s first fracking site, near Preston, on 24 June. However, after adjourning the meeting several times, they decided to postpone the final decision until 29 June to allow them more time to process “secret” legal advice they had been given earlier in the day.

According to one of the those present, Councillor Paul Hayhurst, the advice essentially said they had no legal grounds for blocking the application and if they did so they could expect a costly legal battle with the applicant – the gas company Cuadrilla – which they would probably lose. As a result, he believes the councillors went from a position where they were ready to block the development to one where they were narrowly in favour.

Secret Program Tracks Every Passenger on International Flights

Buried in the transcripts of a congressional hearing that took place yesterday is fleeting mention of the federal government’s latest and perhaps most outrageous assault on privacy. If you take an inbound flight from overseas, and a suspected terrorist or supporter is flagged by automated name-check systems as being on the same flight—even if (and particularly if) that someone was denied boarding because they were on some no-fly list—the government regards you as connected with that terrorist, and runs a check on you and everyone else on the plane.

An Illustrated Guide to Civil Asset Forfeiture

Protecting Hatred Preserves Freedom

The tragedy of a mass murder in Charleston, S.C., last week, obviously motivated by racial hatred, has raised anew the issue of the lawfulness of the State expressing an opinion by flying a Confederate flag at the Statehouse, and the constitutionality of the use of the First Amendment to protect hate speech and hate groups. The State has no business expressing opinions on anything, and it is required to protect hate. Here is the law.

Supreme Court approves Obamacare subsidies on HealthCare.gov

Obamacare just survived a potentially fatal heart attack.

In a major decision, the U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday ruled in a 6-3 decision that the federal subsidies that help nearly 6.4 million people pay for their Obamacare health plans are legal under the Affordable Care Act.

The ruling avoids what many analysts predicted would be a nightmare scenario if the plaintiffs had won: individual plan insurance prices skyrocketing in two-thirds of the United States, and the loss of health coverage for upwards of 8 million people in states served by the federal insurance marketplace HealthCare.gov by next year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The plan prices are already skyrocketing. All the argument is about is over who gets stuck with the bill!

FRENCH SPIES SECRETLY ORGANIZED AND FUNDED THE LIBYAN REBELS, ACCORDING TO CONFIDENTIAL EMAILS TO HILLARY CLINTON

French spies secretly organized and funded the Libyan rebels who defeated Moammar Gadhafi, according to confidential emails to Hillary Clinton that were made public on June 22. According to one entry from March 22, 2011, “officers” with the General Directorate for External Security — the French intelligence service — “began a series of secret meetings” with Jalil and Gen. Abdul Fatah Younis in Benghazi in late February and gave them “money and guidance” to set up the council, whose formation was announced Feb. 27. The officers, “speaking under orders from [Sarkozy] promised that as soon as the [council] was organized France would recognize [it] as the new government of Libya.”

I also suspect that your gov via the NSA will ‘set-up’ small companies and individuals they do not want around any more. If you own a small business and accept plastic money BE VERY CAREFUL.

Judge orders return of $167,000 seized by Nevada troopers

Citing a lack of candor by the government in its court papers, a federal judge has ordered the return of $167,000 seized from a Hawaiian man’s motor home during a traffic stop near Elko.

Nevada Highway Patrol troopers stopped Straughn Gorman twice within 50 minutes in January 2013 as he was driving the motor home west on Interstate 80 between Wells and Elko, according to court documents.

The troopers said they stopped Gorman for driving too slow in the fast lane, but after Gorman refused to let them search the motor home he was allowed to go on his way without a citation for anything.

The troopers stopped him again after arranging for a drug-sniffing dog to be present, and said the dog alerted them to something suspicious in the motor home, documents show. Their search turned up no drugs but troopers found $167,000 hidden in various places.

Federal Reserve policy removed gold and silver as the monetary reserve and replaced it with a promissory note issued by our government to pay in another promissory note of less value. The fractional reserve system and the pyramiding of debt that has been a driving force during this 35 year bull market in bonds, with abnormally low interest rates, will be reversed. It will then be necessary for the current monetary system to be replaced by a new monetary order based on honest commodity money and elimination of the fraudulent system forced upon us in 1913. Defining this replacement in a positive manner should occupy our attention in order to promote peace and prosperity.

The news sources can’t report “second hand information.” I don’t know how someone getting out of jail and reporting a story to me isn’t just as viable as reporting on videos nobody has seen? He stated he didn’t see the videos but made extended synopsis on what was on them. I guess its okay to use selective second hand information.

Senator Slams Obamatrade: "They Won The Vote, But Lost The Trust Of The American People"

Americans increasingly believe that their country isn’t serving its own citizens. They need look no further than a bipartisan vote of Congress that will transfer congressional power to the Executive Branch and, in turn, to a transnational Pacific Union and the global interests who will help write its rules.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I'll go Senator Sessions one further: no thinking American trusts Congress or the Executive branch at all, and doesn't believe one word they say.

This legislation will be terrific for the large corporations, and generally lousy for We the people, but that has become the norm in this country by now.

Politicians do precisely what their corporate handlers tell them, and get handsomely compensated for doing so.

Look for a surge in revoked citizenship, and a brain drain out of this country, the like of which we have never witnessed before.

The United States is bankrupt. Even officially, its debt-to-GDP ratio is well above 100%, the economic/financial point-of-no-return.

The Merging of Government and Wall Street Into One Criminal Entity: The Rising Tide of State Fascism in the US and Canada

In the dozen plus years since 9/11, the US government has rapidly moved from democracy to fascism. When government acts on behalf of a corporate oligarchy as declared by the Princeton-Northwestern study last month, state fascism is the result. And First Amendment rights in America have been obliterated in this morphing process.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Truth is the first casualty of war; and there has been an ongoing war against the American people, courtesy of their government, for quite some time now.

This is not going to be won by violence, but by a call to keyboards, and sharing what you know with whom you know.

America’s Slave Empire

Three prisoners—Melvin Ray, James Pleasant and Robert Earl Council—who led work stoppages in Alabama prisons in January 2014 as part of the Free Alabama Movement have spent the last 18 months in solitary confinement. Authorities, unnerved by the protests that engulfed three prisons in the state, as well as by videos and pictures of abusive conditions smuggled out by the movement, say the men will remain in solitary confinement indefinitely.

The prison strike leaders are denied televisions and reading material. They spend at least three days a week, sometimes longer, in their tiny isolation cells. They eat their meals while seated on steel toilets. They are allowed to shower only once every two days despite temperatures that routinely rise above 90 degrees.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is great for the companies making zigableems of money off this forced slave labor, or the private prison corporations, but lousy for the people inside the system.

It is particularly galling to me to understand that there are some countries - notably, Sweden - which are CLOSING their prisons because of the broad embrace of rehabilitation and community based efforts to insure that recidivism doesn't happen.

Folks, I am NOT soft on crime; I am just hard on the stupidity which prevents a more enlightened approach to a penal system in this country, which has, absolutely and completely, been engineered to fail.

Why Jeb Bush Wants the United States to Be More Like Estonia

On Monday, Jeb Bush posted a column on Medium touting the need for ramped-up cybersecurity efforts. "Given the reliance of the United States government and the private sector on the internet, it is disturbing we remain vulnerable to its disruption and misuse," he wrote.

The piece was mostly devoid of specific ways to fix those vulnerabilities, but what Bush did propose raises some privacy concerns. The former Florida governor cited Estonia, a tiny Baltic nation that's a world leader in cybersecurity efforts, as a model to emulate. What he didn't say was that Estonia's model is predicated on pervasive government involvement in policing the country's internet infrastructure, with the central government establishing a secure online national ID system for citizens. This is a digital version of what US conservatives have long opposed: a national identity card.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More surveillance will not make US citizens any more safe.

What the US government can do to make us more safe, it pathologically will not do, and that is to stop mucking about in other people's countries to harvest resources to which it has absolutely no moral right.

ALBUQUERQUE COPS WHO SHOT MENTALLY ILL HOMELESS MAN NOW FACE LESS SEVERE CHARGES

Prosecutors initially sought to charge two Albuquerque cops who shot and killed a homeless man camping in the New Mexico wilderness in March 2014 with first-degree murder, but the officers are now expected to face lesser charges.

The killing of James Boyd, a schizophrenic 38-year-old, by police officers Keith Sandy and Dominique Perez after an hours-long standoff was captured in a graphic video recorded by a camera on one of the officers’ helmets. The footage went viral, prompting outrage and turmoil across New Mexico that culminated with clashes between protesters and riot police with tear gas.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please, do not visit New Mexico, or pass through it by car, any time soon; this could be very hazardous to your health, even if you have done absolutely nothing wrong.

People of that state, I would suggest that you move out of that state, and soon.

The formerly characterized "Land of Enchantment" has become the "Land of Entrapment"; particularly if you are homeless and mentally ill, and committed the "crime" of camping illegally in the wilderness, where you are working very hard not to bother anyone.

Marco Rubio Casts Deciding Vote For Obamatrade Without Even Reading It

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) cast the deciding vote for Obamatrade on Tuesday as it squeeked through the U.S. Senate 60-37, and his Senate office is still outright refusing to answer whether he even knew what he was voting on.

Rubio, a Republican presidential candidate, was the deciding vote necessary for the U.S. Senate to clear the final 60-vote threshold and eventually, later this week, send to President Barack Obama’s desk the Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) bill that would fast-track at least three highly secretive trade deals that Obama has been negotiating for years.

Americans will be the new third world and your food will be withheld in order to enforce compliance with the planned slave labor in support of the WW III production needs.

Most Americans will report for duty on a voluntary basis in order to avoid starvation. Duty for what?

France summons US envoy over ‘Wikileaks’ spying revelations

The revelations were first reported by French daily Liberation and on news website Mediapart, which said the NSA spied on presidents Jacques Chirac, Nicolas Sarkozy and Francois Hollande during the period of at least 2006 until May 2012.

According to the documents, Mr Sarkozy considered restarting Israeli-Palestinian peace talks without US involvement and Mr Hollande feared a Greek euro zone exit back in 2012.

Mr Le Foll said Paris had not decided whether to launch legal proceedings as Germany had done but, amid calls from some quarters for retaliation, played down diplomatic consequences.

“In the face of threats that we face and given the historic ties linking us, we have to keep a perspective,“ he said. “We‘re not going to break diplomatic ties.“

Ukraine’s President Poroshenko Says Overthrow of Yanukovych Was a Coup

Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko requests the supreme court of Ukraine to declare that his predecessor, Viktor Yanukovych, was overthrown by an illegal operation; in other words, that the post-Yanukovych government, including Poroshenko’s own Presidency, came into power from a coup, not from something democratic, not from any authentic constitutional process at all.

In a remarkable document, which is not posted at the English version of the website of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine, but which is widely reported outside the United States, including Russia, Poroshenko, in Ukrainian (not in English), has petitioned the Constitutional Court of Ukraine (as it is being widely quoted in English):

“I ask the court to acknowledge that the law ‘on the removal of the presidential title from Viktor Yanukovych’ as unconstitutional.”

Reclaim the MONEY POWER with Publicly-Owned Banks

The thesis [of the book "Web of Debt" by Ellen Brown] is that the power to create money has been usurped by a private international banking cartel, which issues our money as debt and lends it back to us at interest. The cartel makes it appear that governments are creating our money, and governments get blamed when things go wrong; but they are actually just pawns of the cartel. We the people can get back our government and our republic only by reclaiming the power to create our own money. We can use the same credit system that private banks use, but administered as a public utility, monitored and overseen by public servants on the model of libraries and courts. To be a sustainable system, profits need to be returned to the community rather than siphoned off into private coffers. --Ellen Brown...interview with Daily Bell

"I have faith in the sort of government "of the people, by the people, for the people" described by Abraham Lincoln; but we don't have that now. What we have is government controlled by a few giant corporations, and they got their power by acquiring the power to create the national money supply. "Allow me to issue and control a nation's currency," Amschel Mayer Rothschild allegedly said in the 18th century, "and I care not who makes its laws." That statement may be apocryphal, but that is how they did it, and that is the power we have to get back if we want a just and trustworthy government that represents people rather than wealthy corporations. --Ellen Brown...interview with Daily Bell

TPP Hands the Money Monopoly to Private Banks

In March 2014, the Bank of England let the cat out of the bag: money is just an IOU, and the banks are rolling in it. So wrote David Graeber in The Guardian the same month, referring to a BOE paper called “Money Creation in the Modern Economy.” The paper stated outright that most common assumptions of how banking works are simply wrong. The result, said Graeber, was to throw the entire theoretical basis for austerity out of the window.

The revelation may have done more than that. The entire basis for maintaining our private extractive banking monopoly may have been thrown out the window. And that could help explain the desperate rush to “fast track” not only the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), but the Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA). TiSA would nip attempts to implement public banking and other monetary reforms in the bud.

“Sentence First, Verdict Afterwards”: The Alice in Wonderland World of Fast-tracked Secret Trade Agreements

Fast-track authority is being sought in the Senate this week for the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), along with the Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA) and any other such trade agreements coming down the pike in the next six years. The terms of the TPP and the TiSA are so secret that drafts of the negotiations are to remain classified for four years or five years, respectively, after the deals have been passed into law. How can laws be enforced against people and governments who are not allowed to know what was negotiated?

...This corporate coup includes the privatization and offshoring of the judicial function delegated to the US court system in the Constitution, through Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) provisions that strengthen existing ISDS procedures.

As explained in The Economist, ISDS gives foreign firms a special right to apply to a secretive tribunal of highly paid corporate lawyers for compensation whenever the government passes a law to do things that hurt corporate profits — such things as discouraging smoking, protecting the environment or preventing a nuclear catastrophe. Arbitrators are paid $600-700 an hour, giving them little incentive to dismiss cases. The secretive nature of the arbitration process and the lack of any requirement to consider precedent give wide scope for creative judgments – the sort of arbitrary edicts satirized by Lewis Carroll in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
