The Occupation is Forever

The ‘two-state solution’ is perennially misunderstood. The solution envisaged has nothing to do with a possible spatio-political division of Israel-Palestine and the ending of the Occupation. Rather it is a public relations device to quell the qualms of those bleeding hearts who find the current impasse unsavory, to deny the necessity (indeed the inevitability) of a ‘one-state solution’, and ultimately to ensure the continuation of the Occupation.

Ditto the ‘peace process’.

National Security Study 200

SUBJECT: Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas Interests

The President has directed a study of the impact of world population growth on U.S. security and overseas interests. The study should look forward at least until the year 2000, and use several alternative reasonable projections of population growth.

In terms of each projection, the study should assess:

- the corresponding pace of development, especially in poorer-countries;
- the demand for US exports, especially of food, and the trade-problems the US may face arising from competition for resources; and
- the likelihood that population growth or imbalances will produce disruptive foreign policies and international instability.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As Ebola races across Africa, it appears that the United States Government's attitude towards the crisis is rather lackadaisical at this point. Certainly it is being treated as a lower priority than sheltering the illegal immigrants flooding across the Mexican border (who given enough time, will bring Ebola with them), providing weapons and money to Israel, and trying to provoke a potentially nuclear war with Russia.

The US Government's inaction could be attributed to the fact that the politicians can;t really do anything about it, cannot get votes out of it, and so, like with Fukushima and the Gulf Oil Disaster, their plan is to ignore Ebola and pretend it just is not important.

But there may be another agenda at work; one that dates back to the Nixon Administration. In 1974, Henry Kissenger prepared a study for the President which suggested US Government policy should work for depopulation of the third world, in particular the resource-rich regions, to make those resources available to the US and to prevent the rise of a sufficiently large population able to resist US incursions.

Nixon adopted this policy, but his successor, Gerald Ford, alarmed by scandals involving covert sterilization under the guise of global vaccination programs, ended the policy. Whether it has been revived in secret is not known.

But there is no question that an Ebola epidemic, raging through the very nations the US AFRICOM is seeking ton control, plays right into that agenda of depopulation to reduce nations' ability to resist US control, and that may be the reason the US Government has done little more about the emerging Ebola crisis than flap their gums for the corporate media cameras!

Alfred Webre: Expose massive Ebola/Martial Law false flag and prevent mega depopulation

"Some dots for you to connect:
"*George Soros’s foundation funds the Kenema bioweapons lab at the focus of the Ebola outbreak, and which is about to be closed, apparently amid an investigation.
"* WHO media coordinator Glenn Thomas was highly likely involved in fielding media and other inquries about how WHO view and what it planned to do about the controversial Kenema lab.
"Was Glenn Thomas aware of hard evidence showing that the lab was faking positive diagnoses for Ebola — Tulane University? — in order to justify forcing people to undergo treatment which would give them Ebola? Did he refuse to go along with the cover up?"
" *The mainstream media is silent about the Kenema bioweapons lab closure as well as about the order to Tulane University to stop Ebola testing. So, what other channels are there left for this information to enter the public domain or be spread through social media networks if WHO does not release the information or take action?

FLASHBACK - The Tytler Cycle Revisited

"A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship."
“The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:

From bondage to spiritual faith;
From spiritual faith to great courage;
From courage to liberty;
From liberty to abundance;
From abundance to complacency;
From complacency to apathy;
From apathy to dependence;
From dependence back into bondage

'Outrage' Follows USDA's Advancement of New Genetically Engineered Crops

Environmental groups warn that advancing Dow's new genetically engineered crops means a continuation of a toxic chemical treadmill that threatens human health. (Photo: Holley St. Germain)

Watchdog groups are denouncing the U.S. Department of Agriculture's recommendation on Wednesday to approve new varieties of genetically engineered corn and soybeans as a path towards more toxic pesticides that threaten the environment and public health.

"We are outraged," stated Marcia Ishii-Eiteman, PhD, senior scientist with Pesticide Action Network, adding that the "USDA has turned its back on America’s farmers and rural communities."

The new crops are Dow AgroScience’s 2,4-D- and glyphosate-tolerant corn and soybeans. They are made to be used with Dow's Enlist Duo herbicide, which contains 2,4-D and glyphosate and is also under review by the USDA.

Schools use new software to monitor students’ social media posts

Officials in western Maryland’s Washington County schools will be tracking students’ social media activity while at school using new software that scans for keywords like “kill” or “bomb.”

The district is using software called Social Sentinel that employs “geofencing” protocol to determine when students are on school grounds and scans their Twitter, Facebook and other social media posts for evidence of violent threats, harassment, drug or alcohol use, or similarly dangerous language, WJLA television station reports.

District officials are assuring the public that student privacy won’t be violated because the “geofencing” protocol limits tracking to when students are at school, a public place.

An off-duty police detective, who had been trying to help capture a fleeing suspect, was on the ground, shouting to be heard over 19 gunshots unleashed at him.

"I'm a cop, I'm Hallandale Police," Hallandale Beach Detective Anthony Distefano yelled to Broward Sheriff's deputies. He continued yelling: "Kilo 12, 10-37 Distefano." "Kilo" is police speak for a plain-clothed detective, and 10-37 is a police code that indicates he's law enforcement.

Official Public Discourse in America: Censorship and Orwellian “Double Think”, “Publicity of the Unspeakable”

An infirmity once characterizing the past century’s most severe totalitarian regimes has now taken root in Western public discourse and practice, a process akin to Orwellian “double think” acting as a form of de facto censorship preempting consideration of major issues and events. This mindset is obliquely shared by a majority of professional journalists, academics, and public office holders—in short, those who represent and lead public opinion. Their collective publicity of the unsaid preserves and perpetuates existing belief systems and power relations. To be sure, there are self-evident injunctions for those straying from such unspoken protocols, including expulsion from this professional class.

BBC agrees to air Gaza charity appeal after getting Israel’s permission

The BBC announced Thursday morning that it would broadcast an emergency charity appeal for Gaza Friday — but only after it was reassured that it won’t face censure from the Israeli government for doing so.

This is in stark contrast to 2009, when another Israeli massacre in Gaza was drawing to an end. Then, the BBC, along with Sky, refused to air an appeal from the same body – the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) — even though other major television networks, including Channel 4, did so.

The BBC’s then director general, Mark Thompson, said at the time that broadcasting the DEC appeal would breach impartiality guidelines, as funds were being raised for Gaza but not Israel.

Dear David, Sorry, but Your Money Is Trapped in the USA

Recently, my colleague David Galland had a revealing experience. David attempted to invest abroad but was stymied by the US government’s de facto capital controls.

While there are no official capital controls, the uniquely burdensome regulations associated with doing business with a “US Person” creates a similar effect—that being that the vast majority of foreign banks, brokerages, and other financial institutions shun American clients, effectively making it much more difficult to move capital outside of the US.

IM contributor Jeff Thomas eloquently points out that “If the sheep are to be sheared, they must first be penned in so that they cannot escape.” This is exactly the point of capital controls: to lock in the wealth of a country so it cannot escape the shearing that is soon to come.

HHS on the hunt for HealthCare.gov emails Issa wants

A senior health department official under Republican scrutiny for the flawed rollout of HealthCare.gov likely deleted some emails now sought by congressional investigators, msnbc has learned.

The Department of Health and Human Services planned on Thursday to alert Congress and the National Archives and Records Administration, which is charged with enforcing federal record keeping laws, about the problem, according to a copy of a letter being sent to Archives.

There is no evidence that Marilyn Tavenner, an Obama appointee who leads the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, intentionally hid information or deleted records; rather, the gaps appear to be the result of sloppy record keeping. But Republicans have attempted to turn missing emails into a political scandal before, as they did with Lois Lerner, a former IRS official at the center of a separate controversy over alleged targeting of conservative nonprofit groups.

Thirty-five senior level federal, state and local law enforcement agents from across the country attended the seventh session of ADL’s Advanced Training School (ATS) Extremist and Terrorist Threats Course in Washington DC, on May 22-24.

ADL Trains Nation's Top Law Enforcement Leaders on Counterterrorism
Forty of the nation's top law enforcement leaders were trained in the twenty-second session of the Anti-Defamation League's (ADL) Advanced Training School (ATS) course on Extremist and Terrorist Threats, held from December 2-4, 2012 in Washington, DC. Participants in the class included executives from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, United States Secret Service, Naval Criminal Investigative Service, Coast Guard Investigative Service, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Central Intelligence Agency Threat Management Unit, and dozens of the nation's largest state and local agencies. The curriculum included presentations on white supremacy, anti-government extremism, homegrown Islamic extremism, the Mumbai attacks, Hezbollah, and more.

American Police Now “Israeli-DHS Trained,” Precursor To Dictatorship
Slowly, every police department in the United States, at the behest of the Department of Homeland Security, is being trained by Israeli groups.

They are becoming “Israeli.”

FLASHBACK - Judea Declares War on Germany


Click for larger image

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Posted at reader request: Today Israel is screaming about how "unfair" the Boycott, Divest, and Sanctions movement is to "poor suffering Israel" (reg Trademark Tel Aviv). but history shows that the same people have never hesitated to use boycotts against others, as this newspaper from 1933 shows.

Following their defeat in WW1, Germany had been forced to accept a privately-owned central bank under the Treaty of Versailles. This privately-owned bank looted the German people and eventually led to the runaway inflation of the Wiemar Republic. When Hitler came to power he kicked out the private central bankers and returned control of the currency to the government. This triggered an economic boom in Germany which would later be described as the "German Miracle" and lead to TIME Magazine making Hitler their Man of the Year for the amazing economic changes he had brought to Germany.

Those changes, of course, were a direct threat to the private central banks, both because citizens in other countries wondered why they could not have the same system of government-issued currency that was working so well for Germany (especially here in the United States, which had been started a with government-issued currency), and because nations enslaved to private central banks cannot economically compete with nations not so encumbered and plundered.

So, the cartel of private central bankers organized a global boycott against the new German monetary system almost the moment it was born, to ruin Germany and drive it back into the clutches of the private central bankers. It was this economic war that set the stage for the emergence of WW2, while the financial predations of the Rothschilds bankers became the foundation of the German peoples' animosity towards Jews.

As a side note, the article gives the total Jewish population of Germany as just over half a million, quite a far cry from the claimed six million supposedly exterminated by the Nazis.

Man Framed by Detective Will Get $6.4 Million From New York City After Serving 23 Years for Murder

A man who was framed by a rogue detective and served 23 years in prison for a murder he did not commit will receive $6.4 million from the City of New York in a settlement that came before a civil rights lawsuit was even filed, lawyers involved in the case said on Thursday.

A $150 million claim filed last year by the man, David Ranta, was settled by the city comptroller’s office without ever involving the city’s legal department — which the lawyers involved in the negotiations described as a “groundbreaking” decision that acknowledged the overwhelming evidence the city faced.

The comptroller’s quick acceptance of liability in the high-profile conviction is also significant because the case is the first of what is expected to be a series of wrongful conviction claims by men who were sent to prison based on the flawed investigative work of the detective, Louis Scarcella, who has been accused of inventing confessions, coercing witnesses and recycling informers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is why we cannot allow capital punishment. Until we can restore life to those it is wrongfully taken from, we should not take it in the first place.

The process of self-examination and accountability has been, and remains, the only way to move forward and regain our moral and legal grounding…

We have a Department of Justice for a reason, and now it’s up to Attorney General Holder, the nation’s top law enforcement officer, to do his job and appoint an independent prosecutor to follow the evidence where it may lead…

It is critical that we hold accountable those who authorized, those who legally sanctioned and those who implemented the torture policies of one of the darkest periods in our nation’s history. What is at stake is nothing less than our democracy.

Stars Face Hollywood Backlash in War of Words Over Israel

When the latest battle in Gaza finally is over, as someday it will be, hard feelings could linger in the corner offices of Hollywood toward the stars who have voiced anti-Israel sentiments. But will the artists who criticize Israel military strikes -- particularly married Spaniards Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz, who accused the country of "genocide" in a widely circulated July 25 letter -- suffer career backlash in a town whose power brokers tend to be strong supporters of Israel?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The days of the McCarthy Blacklist are back, only instead of "Commie" the phrase used to wreck careers for political gain is now "Anti-Semite."

We’re All Criminals and Outlaws in the Eyes of the American Police State

As with most things, if you want to know the real motives behind any government program, follow the money trail. When you dig down far enough, you quickly find that those who profit from Americans being arrested are none other than the police who arrest them, the courts which try them, the prisons which incarcerate them, and the corporations, which manufacture the weapons and equipment used by police, build and run the prisons, and profit from the cheap prison labor.

Talk about a financial incentive.

First, there’s the whole make-work scheme. In the absence of crime, in order to keep the police and their related agencies employed, occupied, and utilizing the many militarized “toys” passed along by the Department of Homeland Security, one must invent new crimes—overcriminalization—and new criminals to be spied on, targeted, tracked, raided, arrested, prosecuted and jailed. Enter the police state.

THE POINT OF NO RETURN

The people of the United States stand at that point right now. That the US Government is using torture on POWs (just as Hitler did) is beyond argument. One can either stand up and denounce that torture and demand the firing of all who took part in it (and the end of the war), or one is by default complicit, an accessory after the fact, seen by all to condone such barbarism.

Anyone who steps across that line is trapped. Unable to look at what they themselves have become they will refuse to look at what the government has become, indeed will create or accept any justification, no matter how thin and transparent, rather than question that government. And indeed this web site gets email from people who have already crossed that point, and are trying to explain why torture is really necessary "this time".

Justice Denied: US Court Rules Bhopal Victims Can't Sue Union Carbide

Victims of the notorious Bhopal chemical plant disaster are still seeking justice after a U.S. district court judge on Wednesday ruled (pdf) that Union Carbide Corp. (UCC) cannot be sued for ongoing contamination from the plant.

The disaster, dubbed "The Hiroshima of the Chemical Industry," began in 1984 when a cloud of poisonous gas, methyl isocyanate, leaked from a pesticide plant whose majority owner was UCC and was operated by an Indian subsidiary, UCIL. Thousands were killed instantly and thousands more in the aftermath. Decades after the plant's closure, nearby residents continue to suffer health impacts including cancers and birth defects.

The suit was filed by EarthRights International (ERI) on behalf of Bhopal residents whose water and land continues to suffer contamination from the plant. The organization states that "UCC largely abandoned the site, allowing toxic wastes to leach into the local water supply."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, because Microsoft is located in the US, any data from anywhere in the world can be subject to US surveillance laws, but because Union Carbide is located in the US, other nations around the world cannot due them for damages when factories in their country explode.

Report finds government agents ‘directly involved’ in many U.S. terror plots

A new report has revealed a disturbing set of tactics used in the pursuit of domestic terrorism in the USA. Among the findings was the fact that the FBI directly and repeatedly involves itself in planning a large percentage of foiled terror plots — often by convincing impressionable or mentally disabled people to join FBI plots, then arresting them.

Human Rights Watch published the 214-page report, titled “Illusion of Justice: Human Rights Abuses in US Terrorism Prosecutions.” It documents a number of cases which the group describes as being marred by overly-aggressive prosecution, entrapment, and draconian treatment of prisoners.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Welcome to 21st century Amerika, where an alleged law enforcement agency is complicit in creating crimes and criminals!

Every FBI agent doing this should be being tried, convicted, and jailed for breaking the law. But that will happen in the US when pigs fly, because breaking the law is what the Federal government does with impunity.

It is a familiar scenario. Israeli is killing hundreds of civilians, mostly women and children, and the Zionist propaganda machine is working overtime.

Secretary of State John Kerry repeats the message and the US House and Senate pass unanimously American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) drafted resolutions affirming the same.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lies repeatedly and the US media gives him a bully pulpit to spread his disinformation about what is occurring, including the propaganda cartoon depicted above explaining why he had to use artillery and bombs to level a residential district, killing nearly 100 civilians in what was described as a “heinous massacre.”

Reader comment: I am reminded of a pivotal scene in the movie "Judgment at Nuremberg" where Spencer Tracy, one of the U.S. judges, visits one of the Nazi judges played by Burt Lancaster in his jail cell. To paraphrase this speech, Tracy tells him that the moment when Nazism took over was when the judges quit upholding the law and what was right and started acting political. Here's another example of it in our own land.

HSBC terminates Gaza-linked Islamic charity’s bank account and others

HSBC has written to an array of UK Islamic charitable organizations to inform them their accounts with the bank will be terminated. One such organization has carried out relief work in crisis-stricken Gaza for over a decade.

In formal letters issued to a think tank, a charity and a North London mosque, HSBC claimed continued provision of its services would counter its “risk appetite".

Family members of a man who runs the think tank have also received similar letters from HSBC. But the multinational bank reportedly offered no explanation for its decision to withdraw its banking services in these cases.

EU sanctions some of Russia's biggest banks, including #1 Sberbank

The European Union has imposed sectorial sanctions on five Russian banks, including the country’s biggest, Sberbank, as part of economic steps that Europe, along with the US, have taken against Moscow over the crisis in Ukraine.

The list, published Thursday, includes Sberbank, VTB Bank, Gazprombank, Vnesheconombank (VEB) and Russian Agriculture Bank (Rosselkhozbank).

These financial entities will be banned from raising capital on the EU’s capital markets.

‘US paying for Israel’s systematic campaign of terror’

Israel is engaged in a systematic, cold blooded genocide against the people of Gaza, at the expense of US tax payers, says William Dores, political analyst who has visited Gaza twice as a member of a fact-finding mission.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

By using your money to buy weapons for Israel's war crimes, the US Government has made you all accessories to those war crimes. And you cannot get off the hook by saying, "I am only obeying the government." The Nuremberg trials at the end of WW2 established the principle that simply following the orders of your superiors does not exonerate you of guilt. Only by openly opposing Israel's war crimes will history regard you as blameless for what is being done to Gaza.

FLASHBACK - JFK Vs The Federal Reserve

It appears obvious that President Kennedy knew the Federal Reserve Notes being used as the purported legal currency were contrary to the Constitution of the United States of America.

"United States Notes" were issued as an interest-free and debt-free currency backed by silver reserves in the U.S. Treasury. We compared a "Federal Reserve Note" issued from the private central bank of the United States (the Federal Reserve Bank a/k/a Federal Reserve System), with a "United States Note" from the U.S. Treasury issued by President Kennedy's Executive Order. They almost look alike, except one says "Federal Reserve Note" on the top while the other says "United States Note". Also, the Federal Reserve Note has a green seal and serial number while the United States Note has a red seal and serial number.

MH17 – Sacrificed Airliner

Will the Empire allow the investigation to follow its course? The Western propaganda machine is in full gear. The twisting of facts, obscuring of evidence, and maneuvering public opinion all over the world: all this is being done with determination and routinely applied precision.

So much is at stake! Increasing cooperation between Russia, Latin America and China could mean the end of Western neo-colonial control of the world. The creation of alternatives to the World Bank can free billions of human beings from market feudalism and its slavery. Powerful news organizations broadcasting from Russia (RT), Venezuela (TeleSur) and Iran (Press TV) are consistently breaking the depressing and nihilistic monopoly of Western propaganda and control of people’s brains all over the world.

Obama Democrat To Congress: You Have No Right To Know What Government Does


Looks like we have another liberal in need of a history lesson, as it is pretty evident that Norton doesn’t understand the meaning of “Separation of Powers.” The framers of our Constitution designed the Separation of Powers in order to prevent one branch from becoming dictatorial. These specific checks and balances were included so each branch could ensure that one branch did not usurp their powers. This does not mean that our government-elected officials can do whatever they want behind closed doors.

Situation atrocious’: Russian Red Cross says E. Ukraine faces humanitarian catastrophe

The Russian Red Cross is not alone in its efforts. Russian Human Rights Commissioner Ella Pamfilova has been trying to achieve the same goal.

"We have made requests to the Ukrainian authorities, OSCE representatives who are present there, and to the Red Cross,” Pamfilova told RT. “We ask all warring parties to grant us a humanitarian corridor to rescue children with severe illnesses. In order to leave the shelling zone, they need special transport and specialist medical help.”

Residential areas have come under fire in the east of Ukraine as Kiev’s forces continue their military operation there. Ukrainian troops and anti-government forces have been blaming each other for the civilian casualties.

The town of Gorlovka in the Donetsk Region has for the last several days witnessed massive shelling. Twenty-seven civilians, including 4 children, were killed in the region July 27-29, the city council said.

New York DHS will pay you $500 to rat out ‘prepper’ neighbors buying legal goods

New York’s Division of Homeland Security is posting signs on businesses to encourage people to snitch on fellow citizens who buy such things as MRE’s (Meals Ready to Eat), ammunition, flash lights, match containers, gas masks and other items deemed to be ‘prepper’ in nature.

In this video a girl working at LZ Army Navy Surplus store in Auburn, NY tell us how a state trooper put up a flyer in their window which encourages customers to call the New York State Terrorism Tips Line to report this ‘suspicious activity’ under the as part of the “See Something, Say Something” campaign.

Why? Basically because their gangster overlords, the sleazy criminals that slither around the banks in Wall Street and the City of London financial district told them to get the war on.
The banksters were deathly afraid that Hitler's resuscitation of Germany's economy, which had been on life support and falling fast, but got turned around in a matter of years into what got called an economic miracle would start spreading to other nations, many of whom were being destroyed from within by the perverted banksters choke-hold on those nations.

The penalties follow tougher sanctions agreed to by European Union leaders earlier in the day.

FLASHBACK - THE LIE OF THE (LAST) CENTURY

Colin Powell's UN debacle also included spy photos taken from high flying aircraft and spacecraft. On the photos were circles and arrows and labels pointing to various fuzzy white blobs and identifying them as
laboratories and storage areas for Saddam's massive weapons of mass destruction program. Nothing in the photos actually suggested what the blobby shapes were and during inspections which followed the invasion, all of them turned out to be rather benign.

In at least one case, the satellite Powell claimed had taken one of the pictures had actually been out of operation at the time. And many questioned why Powell was showing black and white photos when the satellites in use at the time over Iraq took color images.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Earlier this week the US Government released the usual very blurry low-contrast black and white photos with arrows and labels on them to prove Russia is the bad guy. Any time what they release is out of focus, it is to hide the evidence of fakery and the fact is that these latest photos, like Colin Powell's don't actually show what the labels say they show. In at least one case, the photo being presented as representing the situation today carries an EXIF time stamp from 2 years ago!

So, think back on all the photos and diagrams the US Government produced to well you that whopper that Iraq had nuclear weapons and was ready to attack, because the lie machine is once again warmed up and in overdrive!

Fool me once...

Folks Out There Have a “Distaste of Western Civilization and Cultural Values”

The Times then goes on to blame terrorism on “religious fanaticism…the anger among those left behind by globalization,” and the “distaste of Western civilization and cultural values” among the global dispossessed. The blinders and self-deception in such a statement are truly mind-boggling. As if corporate globalization, pushed by the U.S. government and its closest allies, with the help of the World Trade Organization, World Bank and IMF, had not unleashed a tremendous immiseration process on the Third World, with budget cuts and import devastation of artisans and small farmers. Many of these hundreds of millions of losers are quite aware of the role of the United States in this process. It is the U.S. public who by and large have been kept in the dark.

Hawaii mayoral candidate tased after police chase (VIDEO)

Beau Hawkes isn’t the only contender in the upcoming Maui County, Hawaii mayoral race, or even the only one to be arrested in recent weeks. Currently, however, Hawkes is the only hopeful that can say he was tasered while trying to run from the cops.

Following an electrifying encounter with local law enforcement last Wednesday that ended with Hawkes being charged with resisting arrest and failing to obey an officer, the 34-year-old surfer candidate is free on $300 bail and says he is “absolutely” still running for office.

Furthermore, the potential future mayor of Maui says he’s going to sue the police department over his latest run in with the law and, once elected, will order cops to discontinue using their stun guns.

“Tasers are a violation of our human rights,” the mayoral hopeful told KITV News this week. “Maui Police Department will be the first police department to ban the user of Tasers.”

John Napier Tye, former section chief for Internet freedom in the State Department’s Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor, recently wrote about this issue in The Washington Post.

POLICE STATE: Border Patrol Attacks Americans, Lets Illegals Go

Stossel found that the U.S. border Patrol is allowed to set up roadblock for 100 miles inland from the outer border of our entire country. But, as it happens, the largest portion of the country’s population lives within 100 miles from a border.

These agents are stopping cars with no cause whatsoever, forcing citizens to answer dozens of question, conducting searches of vehicles and tazing and detaining American citizens if they refuse to comply.

According to the U. S. Supreme Court the US Border patrol is not allowed to stop cars and search vehicles inside the U.S. but they are doing this anyway all across the country. The court has said that the Border Patrol may conduct a “brief” stop only to ask if the those in a vehicle are citizens and that is it.

Obama Seeks to Dramatically Broaden US War on Terror

The news that President Obama was looking at getting Congress to remove the 9/11 Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF), as well as the 2002 AUMF that led to the invasion and occupation of Iraq, was initially seen as a possible climbdown from the position of eternal American warfare.

Instead, White House officials are now saying that the old 9/11 AUMF is “outdated” and less useful in their current warmongering, primarily because it is so difficult to spin factions that didn’t exist 13 years ago as something to do with 9/11.

The “repeal” is really a cover for what they are now calling the “evolving” of the global war on terrorism, and the introduction of a new, broader authority for the president to attack whatever flavor-of-the-week enemy he can get the terrorist label to stick to.

FLASHBACK - The "Pod People" And The PlaneThat Crashed Into the Pentagon

This is an old intelligence trick called "Poisoning the well", the intentional promotion of lies to blend with an embarrassing truth to discredit it. And the intensity with which the propagandists are pushing this no-plane nonsense is easily explained by the fact that they have nothing else at all with which to defend the official story. The sheer fury with which this story has been met both here at WRH andover at the radio show betrays a sense of panic within the government that the American people know 9-11 was a war-starting hoax. "No plane" is the last card they have to play.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have a bunch of presumably Israeli trolls following me all around the net trying to poison the well on various discussions by claiming that there was not only no plane at the Pentagon but also at the World Trade towers. Their sole argument is that the aluminum of the aircraft could not crash through the steel of the World Trade Towers. Of course, the outer walls of the World Trade Towers were not steel, but also of aluminum. I don't intend to get into this discussion, but here is a repost of the arguments against the "no-planers."

Admitted Liar Claims Russia Is Shooting Artillery Into Ukraine

Should We Believe a Known Liar?

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper is an known liar:

One of the nation’s top military and constitutional law experts – Professor Jonathan Turley – writes:

National Intelligence Director James Clapper appeared before Congress and lied about the program. He later said that he gave the least untruthful statement he could think of. But it was nevertheless untrue and potentially a crime for which he could be prosecuted.

And a huge majority of Americans agree that Clapper should be prosecuted for perjury.

Should we believe a known liar?

Clapper now claims that satellite photos show that Russia fired artillery into Ukraine.

The Pentagon and State Department first accused Russian artillery of firing directly into Ukraine on Thursday. The charges were repeated Friday, although no evidence was offered.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Nothing anyone says in the Federal government can be considered as the truth, and Clapper is no exception to this reality.

StingRay: US Police have Used Fake Mobile Base Stations to Spy on Citizens

A civil liberties group has discovered emails showing that the US government has concealed police use of fake mobile base stations which can spy on citizens without requiring search warrants since at least 2009.

Emails obtained by the American Civil Liberties Union show that federal law enforcement officials insisted police in Sacramento, Florida conceal their use of the devices, known as "StingRay", in order to prevent criminals from learning how to get around them.

Sgt. Ken Castro of the Sarasota Police Department sent emails to members of the North Port Police Department in April 2009, informing them that the US Marshals Service requested that police not disclose StingRay in court depositions, but instead refer to it as "information from a confidential source regarding the location of the suspect".

The North Port Police Department implemented the new rules and continues to avoid mentioning StingRay, according to the emails.

D.C. seeks stay in order striking down ban on handguns in public

In light of Supreme Court decisions that struck down near total bans on handguns in the District and Chicago in recent years, “there is no longer any basis on which this Court can conclude that the District of Columbia’s total ban on the public carrying of ready-to-use handguns outside the home is constitutional under any level of scrutiny,” Judge Scullin wrote in the opinion dated Thursday.

The ruling, five years after the original case was filed, took city officials by surprise and sent police, politicians and attorneys scrambling for a response.

The District’s attorney general’s office was “studying the ruling and considering our options,” spokesman Ted Gest said. In the meantime, city attorneys will seek to block the ruling from taking immediate effect.

From Boeing to banking: how Russian sanctions will hit western business

Tightening the economic screws will hurt Russia's economy, but the consequences will also be felt by western companies – and not just the usual suspects of energy and arms companies that have made high-profile deals with the Kremlin. Germany, for example, has 6,000 companies doing business in Russia, mostly small and medium-sized enterprises. But large conglomerates will be the bellwethers, showing how serious the consequences will be.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

At a time when both the US and EU economies are already fragile, the promoters of war against the Ruble (and the Yuan) are willing to inflict even more hardship and suffering on their own people.

Federal Judge Says U.S. Government Can Steal Unlimited Money From Anyone At Any Time Under The U.S. Patriot Act – 27 July 2014

He was held at Guantanamo Baby for more than 10 years without being charged before being released to his home country Dec. 5, 2013. He had opposed transfer to Algeria, because he feared persecution there, according to court papers.

The Pentagon, however, refused to return his money, based on what government lawyers claimed to be a policy “based on a strong national security interest in preventing these funds from being used in a manner that would adversely impact the safety and security of the United States.” The justification was drawn from provisions in the USA Patriot Act, reports said.

Some human rights groups have argued that the policy constitutes a “war crime,” specifically in that it is in violation of an international prohibition of wartime “pillage,” according to Vice News.

FLASHBACK - DHS stages massive small town 'invasion' with helicopters and assault teams to catch one guy accused of possessing underage porn

The Belleville News-Democrat (BND) explains that federal agents brought in multiple helicopters, armored vehicles and SWAT teams just to raid the home of 34-year-old Robert E. Godsey, who had no history of violence. Before raiding Godsey's home, the agents staged these outrageous weapons of war in the field of a nearby farm before finally converging on the man's property to execute a search warrant.

Weapons of government terrorism were also staged at the nearby A.R. Graiff Elementary School, where the superintendent was reportedly not even informed of the events that would take place there. Tactical vehicles from the Alton Police Department, the Madison County Sheriff's Office and a mobile command center for the Illinois Law Enforcement Alarm System, as well as an ambulance, medical helicopter and U.S. Customs and Border Protection helicopter, were all brought in for the gratuitous display of tyranny.

Former Vanguard Tax Lawyer Files Whistleblower Suit Alleging Mutual Fund Giant Became Low-Cost Leader by Evading $1 Billion in Taxes

A former employee of Vanguard Group Inc. has sued the mutual-fund company in New York, saying it has avoided paying federal and state taxes and sheltered hundreds of millions of dollars annually.

The civil suit, unsealed in the Supreme Court of New York on Friday, accuses the Malvern, Pa.-based firm of operating an illegal tax shelter for nearly 40 years, thus avoiding $1 billion of U.S. federal income tax and at least $20 million of New York tax over the last 10 years, according to a copy of the complaint. The suit was filed by David Danon, whose LinkedIn profile describes him as an associate counsel at the company from August 2008 to June 2013. Mr. Danon is requesting all costs of filing the lawsuit as well as 15% to 30% of any money recovered by the state and local governments, including all proceeds of any related action.

The power to “censor history” should not be left in Google’s hands, Wikipedia Founder Jimmy Wales warned, after the search engine giant revealed it had approved over 90,000 so-called ‘right to be forgotten’ requests.

Wales said a European Court ruling allowing people to have links scrubbed from the search engine's index was "open-ended." He further slammed the law for being unclear.

“The law as it stands right now is quite confusing. We have this one ruling of the ECJ (European Court of Justice) which is very open-ended and very hard to interpret,” he told BBC Radio 4's Today program.

In May, the ECJ said links to irrelevant and outdated data should be erased from searches on request, sparking fears that news stories and other public information could be concealed from public view.

New York’s Division of Homeland Security is posting signs on businesses to encourage people to snitch on fellow citizens who buy such things as MRE’s (Meals Ready to Eat), ammunition, flash lights, match containers, gas masks and other items deemed to be ‘prepper’ in nature.

This is obviously nothing more than the beginning of the cultivation of ‘average citizen snitches’ who will rat out on their fellow citizens.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And before anyone rushes out to make a fast $500 because their neighbor has a garage full of MREs, remember what the French people did to the collaborators after the Nazis left France.

Little side story here. After the Nazis left, young women who had been "friendly" with the Nazis had their hair all shaved off. Humiliating at first with the bald head, as their hair stared to grow back these women found they were much sought after by young men, who viewed the short hair as a sign of easy sexual availability. The women with short hair became so popular that even women who had not been "friendly" with the Nazis started wearing shorter hair styles to attract men!

Oh, and let me save the DHS $500. I do have MREs. I do have a gas mask, but it was my grandfather's from WW1, and in typical government quality it did not work and he lost a lung to mustard gas, so I would not worry about it. I do have flashlights (rather a lot of them, really) and a supply of batteries, plus a short wave. Also canned food, first aid supplies, that sort of thing. I guess that puts me on the terror watch list, but I would like to remind the government that while I may be annoying, obnoxious, and irritating, I am NOT a terrorist! I did try to blow up a bus one time, but I was drunk and burned my lips on the exhaust pipe.

The process began at 1:52 p.m. local time. After five minutes, officials reported Wood was sedated. At 2:02 p.m. he began breathing. A minute later, his mouth moved. The convicted killer was pronounced dead at 3:59 p.m. PT, one hour and 57 minutes after the execution started.

Wood’s lawyers filed an emergency court appeal Wednesday after the lethal injection did not immediately take effect, leaving him "gasping and snorting for more than an hour."

The Line Between FBI Stings and Entrapment Has Not Blurred, It’s Gone

Rezwan Ferdaus is a 26-year-old US citizen of Bangladeshi descent. He was sentenced to 17 years in prison after pleading guilty to attempting to blow up the Pentagon and the US Capitol. This plot was devised with the direct guidance of a federal agent who infiltrated Ferdaus‘ mosque and even provided the fake explosives. An FBI agent said of Ferdaus to the convict’s father that he “obviously” is mentally ill.Ferdaus, who also suffered from severe depression, seizures, and had to wear adult diapers for bladder control problems, was the victim of the sort of FBI sting that crosses the fine line into entrapment. And these operations are no rarity.

ALL WARS ARE BANKERS' WARS! ORIGINAL TEXT ARTICLE

"Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin. The Bankers own the Earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create deposits, and with the flick of a pen they will create enough deposits to buy it back again. However, take it away from them, and all the fortunes like mine will disappear, and they ought to disappear, for this world would be a happier and better world to live in. But if you wish to remain slaves of the Bankers and pay for the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create deposits." -- Sir Josiah Stamp, President of the Bank of England in the 1920s, the second richest man in Britain

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the original article for "All Wars Are Bankers' Wars" from which the broadcast and later the video were created. I am reposting it here for the new visitors from my GCN radio show and also for readers coming over the Daily Telegraph, where my comments on the article "The dollar's 70-year dominance is coming to an end"(link now repaired) have drawn some obvious shills insisting that wars have nothing to do with the banks, the US economy is just hunky dorey, and the US dollar has nothing to fear from the Ruble and Yuan.

Clearly the private central banmks are getting very nervous that the world is not only waking up to their financial scam, but recognizes that they, as masters of the medium of exchange, have made themselves masters of the world, and willingly send millions of young people to horrible death and disfigurement to increase their wealth and control.

US intel officials: Russia created 'conditions' that led to plane downing

Senior intelligence officials said Tuesday Russia created the “conditions" that led to the downing of a Malaysia Airlines passenger jet over eastern Ukraine but stopped short of directly linking Moscow to the fatal missile strike.

The officials said-that anti Ukraine government forces, which are backed by Russia, likely fired the missile that took down Flight MH-17 last Thursday, killing all 298 aboard.

However, they made no direct link to Russia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If at first you don't succeed, lie lie again! -- Motto of the US Government.

Russia did not create the conditions that led too the plane's downing. That little coup last January that forced the elected government from Ukraine (with US and EU support) and replaced it with a Junta willing to make war on their own people created the conditions that led to the shoot down, and we are not ready to dismiss the likelihood that the shoot down of Flight 17 was the false-flag attack mentioned in leaked emails from the Kiev Junta last March as being needed to allow the United States to directly intervene in Eastern Ukraine.

This is probably why FOX News is not allowing comments on this article!

Apple engineered surveillance back door into 600 million iPhones

A highly skilled hacker who presented at the recent Hackers On Planet Earth (HOPE/X) conference in New York has dropped a massive bomb on the state of smartphone privacy. Jonathan Zdziarski, an active member in the iPhone development community who helped work on many early iOS "jailbreak" iterations, says Apple has deliberately engineered back door surveillance systems into the iPhone, allowing both the company and the government easy access to users' personal data.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ooooh, big shockeroonie that one!

NSA has back-doored EVERY SINGLE PIECE OF COMPUTER EQUIPMENT OUT THERE!

Once they start adding back doors, there is no way they would ever allow any one platform to remain private out of concern that this would be the platform of choice for people wishing to remain private.

Yes, it is a fine accomplishment that NerveGas found and identified the back-door and con firmed once again what we already knew abut a government violating the Bill of Rights and large corporations going along with this crime. And maybe this will shake up those few remaining Americans still desperately clinging to an image of benevolent and respectful government, but for those of us who have been watching the invasion of our privacy since the days of ECHELON, this comes as no surprise.

As we proved with our year-long series of NSA code challenges, real criminals and terrorists (not to mention foreign governments) can create encryption systems the NSA cannot break. So this massive spy system is all about keeping watch on YOU, the law-abiding American citizen, to make sure you are not thinking those double-plus ungood thoughts, to steal your business secrets, and to watch your wives and daughters walk around naked in front of their webcams!

That the smart phones are all compromised has been known all along and led to privacy products such as Privacy Case.

PrivacyCase - The Original Privacy Case For Your Cell Phone.

Stories of cell phone spying, tracking, stalking, and eavesdropping fill the airwaves and the internet, leaving users of these devices increasingly concerned about the security of their confidential data, geo-location (GPS), and voice communications. Criminals can compromise your phone even when you think your phone is turned off by utilizing back doors originally built into your wireless devices for law enforcement use.

Until now, there was no reliable method to defend against these intrusions. The "PrivacyCase” stops them immediately by allowing you to control when and where your device is accessed. Our electronically shielded protective case was designed to provide users of wireless devices with a method to counteract the attempted hijacking of communications data & geo-location transmissions while preventing the device from being used to eavesdrop on the activities of the user.

The Privatizing of Prisons

I'm seeing a disturbing trend in how our prisons are run in America these days. Our nation has more people in prisons than anywhere else in the world. More than Russia or China. Think about that. Land of the free? Not for some time. 96% of cases include pleas. Translated, that means that rather than take a chance of going to trial before a jury, most offenders will plead guilty to a lesser charge. A win/win situation unless you aren’t guilty. But their underpaid and overworked public defenders will convince them this is in their best interest. The police get to consider that a closed case. The judges add another feather to their hat and now, private prisons are the bottom feeders in this equation.

US Empire Reaches Breaking Point. “Greatest Threat to Humanity”. Time To End It

The people of the United States must work to end the interventionist violence of the U.S. Empire.

This is Part I of a two part series on American Empire. Part II will focus on the Empire Economy and [how] it is failing to work for most Americans as well as most people of the world.

The historian who chronicles US Empire, William Blum, issued his 130th Anti-Empire Report this week. In it he notes that the US, by far, is seen by the people of the world as “the greatest threat to peace in the world today” with 24% taking that view. Only 2% see Russia as such a threat, and 6% see China.

This should not come as a surprise since, as this map shows, much of the world has been bombed, had their democratically chosen government overthrown and has been occupied by the United States.

Obamacare hit by ruling, but subsidies to continue

President Barack Obama's health care law is enmeshed in another big legal battle after two federal appeals courts issued contradictory rulings on a key financing issue within hours of each other Tuesday.

A divided court panel in Washington called into question the subsidies that help millions of low- and middle-income people pay their premiums, saying financial aid can be paid only in states that have set up their own insurance markets, or exchanges.

About 100 miles to the south in Richmond, Virginia, another appeals court panel unanimously came to the opposite conclusion, ruling that the Internal Revenue Service correctly interpreted the will of Congress when it issued regulations allowing consumers in all 50 states to purchase subsidized coverage.

The White House immediately declared that policyholders will keep getting financial aid as the administration sorts out the legal implications.

Dirty Dealing Harry Reid

Rather than write an article on this, I thought I would just post an email I received this morning. Harry Reid is up to his usual tricks. You remember him. He's the one who owns land close to the public land that Cliven Bundy was running his cattle on. Reid, with his son working with the Chinese, was hoping to make a fortune over selling land to them. Our land, by the way. Federal property does not belong to these crooks in D.C. but to all Americans.

Now he's trying to ram through legislation that would allow for taxing activity on the Internet. This is only the camels nose in the tent. Once it starts, where does it stop? Let's fight to keep our Internet free. It seems that these politicians are desperate for more money. More taxation without representation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It isn't just the money. They can write the internet taxes in a way where large corporations survive by passing the tax along to their users while small independent media websites (like this one) are forced out of business.

BREAKING: Obamacare dealt massive setback by federal appeals court

Millions of Americans are not entitled to government health insurance subsidies under Obamacare because of the way the law is written, a divided three-judge panel of the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Tuesday.

In a decision that could blow a massive hold in President Obama’s signature domestic achievement, the court held that people living in states that relied on the federal government to set up their insurance market exchanges cannot offer the subsidies considered critical to making coverage affordable.

The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled the administration used an IRS rule to stretch the meaning of the Affordable Care Act, which said financial aid to to low- and middle-income people should only flow to exchanges “established by the State.” If that means only state-run exchanges, it would cut off subsidies to two-thirds of the nation.

The father, 43, died in Staten Island during an arrest on Thursday after being held down and handcuffed by veteran NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo.

The Overthrow of Humanity

As far back as recorded history and, no doubt, much further than that, some groups of people have been trying to take over the known world. Sometimes it is one person, with an enormous ego or self appointed right of entitlement. But just as often it’s a group. The rest of us are viewed by them as cattle, useless eaters, cannon fodder, these days, organ donors but certainly, in their way.

Many people I talk to have trouble believing or understanding the long range goals of these so-called elite because the things they do are so fantastic and evil. The very first thing you need to do is stop relating what they are accused of doing with what you would do. There is no comparison. These people would eat their own children (and no doubt have) if they thought it would further their evil agenda.

When the Government talks of Sanctions

Sanctions only serve the Government, not the People.

When a foreign country, such as Russia, Iran or Cuba, is at the receiving end of sanctions, only the people suffer. Americans suffer because they can’t export as much so they loose money. And the people in those foreign countries also suffer because they cannot receive the benefits of American-made products to make their lives better. In either case both governments benefit. How?

The US government enlarges its reach of power much like a two-bit mafia don: “Do what I say or else. Capisce?” It does not suffer because it produces nothing and its long arm is in every American pocket via the IRS and other tax authorities.

The foreign government is also happy because it too is a two-bit mafia don with its hands on every lever of the economy. When its people cannot progress they’re at its mercy: “Do what I say or no bread. Capisce?”

Kerry, Kerry pants on fire!: If You Believed the Secretary of State’s Poison Gas Lie, You’ll Love His Latest One

If the best the US can do to pin the blame for the Malaysia Flight 17 downing on Russia is to have Secretary of State John Kerry say that “circumstantial evidence” points to Moscow being behind it, we can be pretty certain it was not Russia at all.

Webmaster's Commentary:

To find a lie look for what should be there and isn't, and what isn't there in the case of MH17 is a REASON for either Russia or the Eastern Ukrainians to shoot down a civilian passenger jet, knowing that such an act would turn world opinion against them. On the other hand, shooting down a civilian passenger jet to frame Russia and the Eastern Ukrainians in order to turn world opinion against them is a great motive for either Kiev or the US to have committed this crime.

Michigan Food Seizure by Stealth, Welcome to Amerika

Jenny Samuelson was all set to do the deal dictated by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development: Dispose of nearly $5,000 worth of raw milk, cream, butter, eggs, and cheese. Under MDARD supervision, she was to bring the 250 gallons of milk to a neighboring farm, where the farmer would use it for fertilizer. The 10 gallons of cream and 20 pounds of butter would go in a dumpster. And the 100 dozen beautiful unwashed and unrefrigerated pastured eggs (raised without soy feed) would be smashed and turned into compost.

She would also discontinue all deliveries of cream and butter to herdshare members, despite their serious unhappiness about losing access to these foods.

But then the MDARD agents canceled out on the Saturday morning arrangements whereby they would observe the disposal of the food. They have now agreed to show up first thing Monday morning to watch the dirty deed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The government wants us all dependent on the large food corporations, even if what those corporations provide is inferior to naturally produced farm food. It's all about the money, and a healthy population is not only not a factor, but preferable to keep us dependent on the pharmaceutical industry to deal with the illnesses from corporate foods' chemical additives.

“At least 80% of fibre-optic cables globally go via the US”, Binney said. “This is no accident and allows the US to view all communication coming in. At least 80% of all audio calls, not just metadata, are recorded and stored in the US. The NSA lies about what it stores.”

US Government Orders Farmers To Destroy 30 Million Pounds Of Their Own Crop

In one of the worst examples of government regulation and intrusion, the US government ordered Michigan cherry farmers to literally dump 30 million pounds of cherries on the ground. Even worse, many cherry farmers are being driven out of business because of the outrageous rules.

The practice is coming to national light because of a new lawsuit against the government filed by a cherry processor. A judge currently is considering issue.

“The food pantry shelves are bare, people going hungry, and here we are dumping millions of pounds of cherries on the ground,” Michigan cherry grower Rob Manigold said of the 2009 incident. That was the same year farmer Leonard Ligon dumped 72,000 pounds of tart cherries along a road outside Traverse City, Michigan, to protest US Department of Agriculture (USDA) regulations on his state’s cherries.

NY grandma jailed for violating protection order used to ‘quell dissent’ outside drone base

A New York grandmother was sentenced to a year in jail for violating a protection order filed by an Air National Guard commander against anti-war protesters.

Mary Anne Grady-Flores violated the protection order filed by Col. Earl Evans, prosecutors said, when she stepped on the grounds of Hancock Air Base to photograph a peaceful protest against the use of drones.

The judge imposed the maximum sentence July 10 for criminal contempt of court because the 58-year-old Grady-Flores had failed to pay fines and surcharges imposed by the court in a prior case.

Grady-Flores – the daughter of “Camden 28? Vietnam War protester John Grady — knew she was under court order to stay off base property, so she stood on a nearby roadway to photograph about 20 activists at the Ash Wednesday protest.

Her sister admits Grady-Flores briefly stepped onto a driveway on base property so another protester could show her how to take photos with an iPhone.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"...Disorderly conduct for blocking the the roadway."?!?!? ARE YOU FLIPPING KIDDING ME?!?!?

I so hope this gets appealed and thrown out of court.


Apparently, grandmothers who are completely peaceful scare the excrement out of Col. Earl Evans, and the peaceful expression of opinions contrary to war, more war, and extrajudicial assassinations is not to be tolerated on his watch.

It also is a very informative window on Obama's mindset that one of his most favorite ways to wage war is with drone attacks, which not only take out the alleged "bad guy" with no due process, but also takes out scores of innocent people, either killing them outright, or maiming them for life.

Hawks Hint at Expanding Use of Never-Ending War 'Slush Fund'

A proposal for supplemental war funding was under scrutiny Wednesday at a Congressional hearing, where Defense Department officials hinted that there is no end in sight to the need for this counterterrorism "war chest."

At issue is nearly $60 billion proposed last month by the White House for Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO) funds for the 2015 budget. The pot for OCO, which until 2009 was called Global War on Terrorism, is on top of the base budget for the Defense Department, which for the 2015 proposal is nearly $500 billion.

Mattea Kramer of the National Priorities Project has pointed out that the OCO budget "isn’t subject to caps or cuts or any restrictions at all." This has led some, like Stephen Miles, coalition coordinator for Win Without War, to refer to it as "a massive slush fund to avoid fiscal discipline."

Detroit residents continue protest to remain in homes

Standing on West Grand Boulevard last week, Detroit resident Sheree Bass held up a sign that said, “Stop the racket. Pay the taxes.” Underneath the phrase, she had taped a copy of the Wayne County tax statement for the home she’s lived in for years. Total amount due: $7,939.11

The problem, Bass says, is she doesn’t own the home located near Eastern Market. It’s actually owned by Oakland County developer Peter Barclae.

Bass is currently locked in a legal battle in Wayne County Circuit Court, along with a dozen other Detroiters who say Barclae is trying to sling homes they should’ve owned by now. Barclae, of West Bloomfield Township, contends otherwise.

FLASHBACK - Rivero challenges the NSA

Nobody got this. The coffee mug is still in the box. I am batting 1000 against the NSA's cryptographers! My first NSA challenge came out over a year ago. Had I been a real terrorist, I would have had ample time to carry out my nefarious plans.

This proves that the NSA cannot and does not track real criminals and terrorists, but exists to spy on law-abiding Americans citizens on behalf of a government grown paranoid over public awareness of their crimes and corruption.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I decided to reprise this post, which is the history of the 6 challenges I hurled at the NSA over this last year to break a code created by an average human being.

Obviously the NSA would be well-motivated to break one of my codes to discourage other people from deciding to create their own encryption, but they never did. Even the claimed "Quantum Computer" which the NSA claimed could break any code failed.

The point is that the NSA's massive spying apparatus is incapable of finding and tracking real criminals or terrorists who have the resources needed to create and code their own encryption methods. I am not an expert cryptographer. I am only (after years of being away from it) a moderate C programmer. Yet I batted 1000 against the NSA fort an entire year.

Thus we are left with the conclusion that the NSA's massive spying operation is not about fighting terror, or even locating criminals, but about keeping watch on law-abiding Americans to deter us from thinking those double-plus ungood thoughts. That has not worked very well, in hindsight. No better than the NSA's ability to find the cyber-criminals planting ransomeware on your computers. Given that the NSA is desperate for some good publicity, you would think they would love to be able to put the head of a cyber-crook on a spike over the gates to their data center, but they haven't been able to manage that, which only reinforces my point.

Overwhelmed FCC Extends Deadline For Commenting On Net Neutrality

Today was supposed to be the deadline for filing comments with the FCC about its pending net neutrality proposal. But the Commission has just announced that, due to a surge in responses that is once again overwhelming its commenting system, the deadline has been extended to Friday.

“[W]e have seen an overwhelming surge in traffic on our website that is making it difficult for many people to file comments through our Electronic Comment

Thus, the deadline has been extended until midnight (presumably ET) Friday, July 18.

Florida inmate still on death row despite DNA proof of innocence discovered years ago

Years of legal wrangling over conclusive DNA evidence proving his innocence led the Florida Supreme Court to overturn Paul Hildwin’s murder conviction and death sentence two weeks ago. Yet Hildwin remains on death row.

Twenty-eight years after his conviction for a 1985 murder, Hildwin, 54, must wait - possibly for several months - for state prosecutors to decide whether to retry the case or drop the charges.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Common sense says let the guy go, but I am sure the Prosecutors don;t want an "overturn" on their score card or face the resulting civil suit for wrongful imprisonment. And, jokes about rabid wombats aside, this is why I cannot support the death penalty. The system makes mistakes. It punishes the wrong people either through mistake or political corruption (the current Tsarnaev trial being a good example.) And until we can restore life to those it is wrongfully taken from, we should not take it in the first place.

State police now fingerprinting every Texan

The Texas Department of Public Safety has quietly embarked on a project to take the fingerprints of every Texan old enough to drive over the next 12 years, and add them to a statewide criminal history database.

Not only has the department made that momentous decision on its own, it doesn’t even have clear legal authority to do so.

The credit for breaking the news on those two items goes to consumer affairs columnist Dave Lieber of the Dallas Morning News, whose long-running “Watchdog” column often shows up in my Google Alerts, for obvious reasons.

As an old-school columnist, Lieber tends to keep his opinions subdued, and he doesn’t generally call people dishonest. But I have no problem with doing that, so I’d like to point out that the DPS spokesman he quotes at length is less than straightforward about his department’s legal authority.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is Code Napoleon Law writ large, which assumes every person is guilty until proven innocent; this is the absolute antithesis of American law, which presumes that every person is innocent until proven guilty.

And to put this info into a criminal data base?!?!? Heck, I don't even have an overdue library book!!

Journalist is stopped by TSA agent who thought District of Columbia was a different country!

A Washington, DC TV reporter was stopped on his way into the Orlando airport by a TSA agent who thought the District of Columbia was in a different country.

Justin Gray told WFTV he was confused at first when the agent looked at his driver's license and asked to see a passport.

But when he realized what was going on, his confusion turned to concern about the caliber of TSA employees working to ensure the safety of those who fly out of Orlando International Airport.

US Dollar’s Days Are Numbered as BRICS Meet

A summit of major emerging “BRICS” economies in Brazil is the latest sign of the decline of the US dollar as the standard global currency for reserves and trading, James Rickards, author of Currency Wars told RIA Novosti.

“We see the BRICS’ desire to shift away from the dollar, a unified Eurozone with a sovereign bond market waiting in the wings and a requirement on the International Monetary Fund to re-liquefy the world when the next financial crisis hits,” Rickards said.

“Put all that together and you see that the dollar’s days are numbered,” he added.

Obama Administration Defends 'Almost-Orwellian' NSA in Federal Court

In his December 2013 opinion in Klayman v. Obama, Judge Richard Leon of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ruled that the "almost-Orwellian technology that enables the government to store and analyze the phone metadata of every telephone user in the United States" not only sounds like the stuff of dystopian science fiction, it "almost certainly does violate a reasonable expectation of privacy" under the Fourth Amendment. It was the first major legal defeat for the NSA.

NSA may be putting Israeli security interests above U.S., new document reveals

Greenwald, who published many of Snowden's revelations over the last year, released his book "No Place to Hide"on Wednesday. Concurrently with the release of the book, Greenwald made public slides that Snowden obtained from the NSA. One of them deals with intelligence relations with Israel.

"Balancing the SIGINT exchange equally between U.S. and Israeli needs has been a constant challenge in the last decade; it arguably tilted heavily in favor of Israeli security concerns. 9/11 came, and went, with NSA's only true Third Party CT relationship being driven almost totally by the needs of the partner," one slide reads.

Another slide states, "The Israelis are extraordinarily good SIGINT partners for us, but … they target us to learn our positions on Middle East problems. A NIE [National Intelligence Estimate] ranked them as the third most aggressive intelligence service against the U.S."

Police open fire on Palestine solidarity activists at Los Angeles rally for Israel

An officer with the Department of Homeland Security opened fire on Palestine solidarity activists as they drove away from a pro-Israel rally in front of the Federal Building in Westwood in Los Angeles on Sunday. The activists have also complained that they were attacked by Israel supporters.

The Electronic Intifada’s Ali Abunimah was attacked by Los Angeles police in the same area while filming a pro-Israel rally last week.

After being shot at, the men were detained by the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department and then smeared by various media outlets as violent members of Hamas.

Surprise! FEC employee who admitted violating the Hatch Act suffers mysterious hard drive crash

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) on Monday made yet another request to the federal government for details about a crashed hard drive that may have contained information allowing criminal charges to be brought against a federal official.

Issa’s newest letter concerns the hard drive of April Sands, a former employee at the Federal Election Commission who resigned in the spring after admitting to violations of the Hatch Act. That law puts restrictions on the ability of government officials to conduct political activities while on the job, or from government offices.

Issa noted that while Sands admitted to violating the law, the FEC just recently told Congress that it could not recover her hard drive, which made it impossible to seek criminal charges against her.

And now: The criminalization of parenthood

A couple of themes we explore here at The Watch are the increasing criminalization of just about everything and the use of the criminal justice system to address problems that were once (and better) handled by families, friends, communities and other institutions. A few examples from recent headlines show those themes intersecting with parenthood.

The first story comes from South Carolina, where a mother was jailed and charged with “unlawful conduct toward a child” for . . . leaving her 9-year-old daughter alone to play in a park.

The Numbers are so Artificial Now, It Wouldn’t Take Much for the “Beach Ball” to Pop-Up

Maybe excess profit taxes come into play and since you don’t have paperwork for something you bought, the IRS might say “Oh, ok, your basis price is zero, and therefore, everything you’re selling it for has to be reported as 100% capital gains. Therefore, we are going to tax you at 50, 60, 70%” or Whatever you do that is excess profit taxes for all of these social misfits and terrorists that dare to try to hedge and protect themselves from a financial system that is teetering on the edge. I have every expectation that we are going to have excess profit taxes (on precious metals). ~Eric Dubin

The Real Purpose Of The IMF

The International Monetary Fund was set up in 1945, describing itself as an “organization of 188 countries, working to foster global monetary cooperation, secure financial stability, facilitate international trade, promote high employment and sustainable economic growth, and reduce poverty around the world.”

This all sounds very laudable, but in reality the IMF has a very different purpose from that which is stated. If you look at the history of the IMF’s intervention in countries around the world you will see a trail of disaster and looting that repeats time and time again wherever they go.

Eglin Air Force Base Busted Gaming Reddit

Check out this blog post with reddit statistics. Notice Eglin Air Force Base as the “most addicted” city. This is about a year ago, so reddit has been getting heavily sh!tp0sted by government employees for at least this long.

Here is a paper funded by Eglin AFB studying how to establish majority views, social control, influence conversations, contain unwanted information. Eglin AFB is a major hub for Pentagon domestic manipulation programs online.

A lot of this got established right when the war on terror started. Then in 2012 the Smith-Mundt Modernization Act legalized Pentagon / other agency domestic propaganda. That’s not to say what we think of as ‘propaganda’ or manipulation wasn’t going on before – just that they no longer have to plausibly believe the narrative they try to trick you into buying.

The Kingdom Of Shylock

Plutocracy is more despotic then monarchy; more insolent than aristocracy; more selfish than bureaucracy. It accumulates by conscious fraud more money than it can use, and denounces as public enemies all who question its methods or throw a light upon its crimes.

(W. J. Bryan, New York Reception, 1906).

All undertakings in the field of industry are now dependent upon the consent of the banker.

The Stock Exchange activities of the banks are becoming more and more the controlling force in every department of economic life.

Modern capitalism is the child of money-lending

Money-lending contains the root idea of capitalism

In money there is no thought of production

Deputy Tries To Shoot Dog, Misses And Hits 10-Year-Old

A ten-year-old boy was shot by a Coffee County deputy last Thursday after the deputy had aimed to shoot a dog during a manhunt.

Police were searching for 19-year-old Christopher Barnett, who had allegedly shot a police officer following a robbery at a gas station earlier in the day. Barnett had made his way to a trailer park in Douglas and was followed by police. Dakota Corbitt was in the front yard of his home in the trailer park during the police search for Barnett.

According to Coffee County Sheriff Doyle Wooten, a deputy went onto the property where Corbitt lives and claimed that a dog ran up to him. The deputy fired on the dog, but somehow missed and shot Corbitt in the back of the leg.

US Congressmen threatened by Israeli lobby: Bruce Gagnon

US lawmakers are threatened by the Israeli lobby not to talk about Israel’s atrocities against Palestinians with losing their jobs in the Congress, an American political analyst says.

“Our Congress has been taken over by people who are afraid of Israel and many people in the United States Congress are threatened by the Israeli lobby and told that if they don’t support Israel, they will be thrown out of office,” Bruce Gagnon from Global Network Against Weapons and Nuclear Power in Space told Press TV on Sunday.

“There have been several cases of congressional representatives who stood up to Israel and then there was a tremendous outpouring of money and lies in their next campaign for election where they’re defeated. So, this has frightened many people inside the Congress who now will never say anything bad about Israel because they’re afraid they lose their jobs,” he added.

TSA Lets Illegals Fly Without ID, Harasses Mom Over Breast Milk

While the TSA is perfectly content to let illegal aliens (and by extension potential terrorists) fly without any proper form of ID, American moms like Nicole Moberg are being harassed over their breast milk.

On Friday it emerged that the TSA was allowing illegal aliens to fly on commercial airliners inside the U.S. without verifiable identification. As long as the individual was able to produce a Notice to Appear form, they were allowed to board the plane.

A TSA spokesperson immediately took to social media to deny the report, claiming media outlet Breitbart had lied about the story. However, the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) obtained a statement from the Border Patrol union which revealed that the TSA had reversed the policy in the aftermath of the Breitbart story.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Any government which so consistently and perniciously harasses innocent people, and consistently lies about its actions has delegitimized itself to the point of being thoroughly unworthy of support by its citizens.

And that, unfortunately, is precisely what the government of the United States of America has become; a sociopathic, morally and fiscally broken, dictatorial, third-world banana republic, with nuclear weapons.

Robbing Peter

On 16th March 2013, the banks of Cyprus, with the approval of the Cyprus Government, the European Commission, the European Central Bank, and the International Monetary Fund, confiscated private savings of accounts exceeding €100,000.

At the time, there were two readings of the unanimous approval by four bodies. As the confiscation was presented to the public, the unanimous approval implied that the confiscation was above board. To those who looked a bit deeper, however, the unanimous approval meant that, not only had the four bodies clearly been working on the plan for some time, behind closed doors, but it also demonstrated that all four bodies colluded to steal a significant amount of privately owned money.

Britain Buys Water Cannons; Fears Civil Unrest From Government Workers

he British government has just invested in water cannons because they are fearing the rising tide of civil unrest as austerity is forcing the reduction of state workers and their pensions. I have been warning that unemployment will rise, but this time it is going to flow more so from the state and municipal workers. In the UK, hundreds of thousands have took to the streets to protest against the austerity measures of the government. Prime Minister Cameron has no choice for this is the collapse of socialism. Those who think I am anti-poor or whatever, are missing the point. It is the rising cost of government that is out of control and NO LEVEL of tax increase can reverse this trend.

Proof that NSA Is Still Lying About Spying on AmericansJuly 13th, 2014

The NSA has been caught in lie after lie about its surveillance on Americans. This is nothing new. An NSA whistleblower told Washington’s Blog:

They were asked 40 years ago whether NSA had bugged Congress. And, of course, they lied. They lied through their teeth.”

Two of NSA’s current lies are:

(1) NSA only accidentally and incidentally collects information about Americans, and it is really only focused on foreigners;

and

(2) NSA only spies on Americans’ metadata … not content

But high-level NSA whistleblowers Bill Binney, Thomas Drake and Russell Tice have all told Washington’s Blog that the NSA is spying on the content of Americans’ phone calls and emails.

And it is clear that the NSA – and other government agencies – have been spying on – and retaininginformation on – all Americans.

Beware the Dangers of Congress’ Latest Cybersecurity Bill

A new cybersecurity bill poses serious threats to our privacy, gives the government extraordinary powers to silence potential whistleblowers, and exempts these dangerous new powers from transparency laws.

The Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act of 2014 ("CISA") was scheduled to be marked up by the Senate Intelligence Committee yesterday but has been delayed until after next week's congressional recess. The response to the proposed legislation from the privacy, civil liberties, tech, and open government communities was quick and unequivocal – this bill must not go through.

The bill would create a massive loophole in our existing privacy laws by allowing the government to ask companies for "voluntary" cooperation in sharing information, including the content of our communications, for cybersecurity purposes. But the definition they are using for the so-called "cybersecurity information" is so broad it could sweep up huge amounts of innocent Americans' personal data.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What we absolutely do NOT have in this country is "cybersecurity"; what we do have is industrial-strength cyberinsecurity. This means nothng gets typed into your computer that you do not want the entire world, or universe, to read, and you do not say anythng on your phone that you do now want broadcast for the world to hear.

Of course, the really bad guys are already encrypted against this; it is just normal, innocent, ordinary working Americans who have to be concerned about this pernicious breach of privacy, should this bill get passed.

Almost hysterically, the Federal government has once again set up TINY ‘free speech zones’ in Murrietta, Texas, despicably forgetting that THE ENTIRE COUNTRY is a ‘free speech zone’ in accordance with the 1st Amendment and the United States Constitution.

Seemingly attempting to set up another ‘Bundy Ranch’ situation in which Americans put the FEDS in their proper place when it comes to WHEN AND WHERE ‘free speech’ takes place, are they actually TRYING to set-up another Bundy Ranch situation, where the 2nd Amendment once again comes to the rescue of the 1st?

Man Sues Feds After They Target Him for Photographing Rainbow Art

When 86-year-old photographer James Prigoff paused to photograph a natural gas storage tank in Boston 10 years ago, he was simply doing what countless of tourists have done before. The colorful tank, painted with a rainbow-like design, is a popular photo op. He had no reason to suspect his snapshot would prompt an ominous visit by a federal agent months later and the addition of his name to a government database of suspicious activity.

But his case is hardly unique. Similar circumstances have befallen four other people, who are suing the government over so-called suspicious activity reports, or SARs, filed against them.

Justice declines to pursue allegations that CIA monitored Senate Intel staff

The Justice Department has decided not to pursue accusations that the CIA spied on the Senate Intelligence Committee and allegations that committee staff slipped classified documents from a secure agency facility, McClatchy has confirmed.

"The department carefully reviewed the matters referred to us and did not find sufficient evidence to warrant a criminal investigation," said Justice Department spokesman Peter Carr.

The news marks an apparent end to an extraordinary feud that spilled into the public forum in early March over the committee’s report on the agency’s post-9/11 enhanced interrogation program. The dispute included competing Justice Department referrals, with both the CIA and the Senate Intelligence Committee accusing the other side of criminal conduct throughout the course of the interrogation study.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is obvious that Obama's "Justice" department did not want to have the report on "enhanced interrogation" (translation: torture) see the light of day.

Arrivederci Bolzano

The following is a farewell note from the owners of Bolzano Artisan meats:

By this point, you already know how we were forced to shut down because of actions by the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, but now the financial damage has forced us to close our doors on our plant on Holton Street for good. We are working behind the scenes to relaunch the company, perhaps with the help of other great local food innovators in our state. It might take months, it might take many years - we just can't tell at this point.

Even though it's the end for Bolzano Artisan Meats production at our little plant, our love of great heirloom pork, sustainable farming, and the history and science of dry curing will continue in some form or another. We might be teaching classes, making podcasts, working on political issues that effect artisan food processors, or just sharing our passion for good farming and great eating with all of you.
