States moving to GPS-based weight and distance tax

As vehicles continue to get more fuel efficient, state and federal governments are looking at alternative funding mechanisms to shore up their fuel tax revenues. The Congressional Budget Office, for instance, recently proposed that Congress pass legislation that would charge drivers a tax for every mile they drive. Some states are not waiting on a federal solution. Oregon and California have already taken actions to tax motorists based on the type of vehicle, weight and distance they travel on state roads.

The More Corrupt the State, the More Numerous the Laws

Distinguishing between real crimes (i.e., harming or threatening to harm people or property) and breaking the law is critical to your personal freedom. The next step is for you to minimize your exposure to arbitrary, make-believe “crimes” invented by your home government.

You can do this by diversifying internationally. That means moving some of your savings abroad in the form of physical gold to a safe jurisdiction, owning real estate in another country, opening foreign bank/brokerage accounts, and obtaining a second passport, among other things. Taking these steps will significantly dilute the power bureaucrats in your home country have over you.

5 Brainwashing Tricks That Work No Matter How Smart You Are

Everyone is talking about Scientology again, and why not? It's a billion-dollar cult apparently based on convincing actors they have superpowers. But there's no reason to single them out -- look around and you'll see the world is full of people who've either gotten brainwashed into doing something weird (like that co-worker who's way too into yoga) or murderous (like, you know, all those people who keep joining ISIS). You would never do something like that, of course, so what makes those people different?

Why is it so easy for evil/stupid movements to find followers -- including intelligent, well-educated ones? I'm pretty sure the future of civilization hangs on figuring this out, so here's what I've got:

2016 interview with Martin King: Justice demands peace, ending poverty, arrests for my assassination by US government

*hyperlinks/video live at source*

“The time is always right to do what is right.” ~ Martin King, 1964

Dr. King’s 2-minute message to you:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lrpqnZYAB6w

Carl: Martin! It’s an honor! (bro hug)

Martin: Thank you. It’s my honor to connect with Brothers and Sisters in serving justice!

C: What would you like to discuss?

M: Principally, the greatest message Americans can hear today: standing for justice. Americans live in a world dominated by their own government’s wars. There is no justice greater than defending our brothers and sisters from death at the hands of military might. Closely connected is the inactivity of those engaged in war to end poverty. When it is the poor people working hardest to help themselves, there is no evil greater than blocking their progress.

23 Percent Of Americans In Their Prime Working Years Are Unemployed

“There are 124.5 million Americans in their prime working years (ages 25–54). Nearly one-quarter of this group—28.9 million people, or 23.2 percent of the total—is not currently employed. They either became so discouraged that they left the labor force entirely, or they are in the labor force but unemployed. This group of non-employed individuals is more than 3.5 million larger than before the recession began in 2007,” writes the Republican side of the Senate Budget Committee.

New bill introduced to Congress strips policing powers away from BLM and Forest Service, shifts them to Sheriffs

A new bill introduced to Congress on Mar. 16, by Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz, will strip authoritative policing powers from the Bureau of Land Management along with the U.S. Forest Service and hand the powers over to local Sheriffs as was originally intended.

The bill, titled “H.R.4751 – Local Enforcement for Local Lands Act of 2016,” was introduced following numerous reports of gross negligence on the part of the BLM and other agencies, leading up to the occupation of the Malheur Wildlife Refuge, which ended with the death of rancher LaVoy Finicum and the arrest of other ‘conspirators.’

Elements of the history or the storyline (regarding the former and the latter works) are now becoming thoroughly inculcated into the fabric of modern reality.

NSA DIRECTOR MADE SECRET VISIT TO ISRAEL LAST WEEK

The head of the United States’ largest intelligence agency secretly visited Israel last week, reportedly in order to explore forging closer ties between American and Israeli cyber intelligence experts. Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz said on Sunday that Admiral Michael Rogers, who directs the United States National Security Agency (NSA), was secretly in Israel last week. The NSA is America’s signals intelligence (SIGINT) agency, which is responsible for electronic collection, as well as protecting US government information and communication systems from foreign penetration and sabotage.

The CIA Just Declassified the Document That Supposedly Justified the Iraq Invasion

The CIA released a copy of the NIE in 2004 in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, but redacted virtually all of it, citing a threat to national security. Then last year, John Greenewald, who operates The Black Vault, a clearinghouse for declassified government documents, asked the CIA to take another look at the October 2002 NIE to determine whether any additional portions of it could be declassified.

The agency responded to Greenewald this past January and provided him with a new version of the NIE, which he shared exclusively with VICE News, that restores the majority of the prewar Iraq intelligence that has eluded historians, journalists, and war critics for more than a decade. (Some previously redacted portions of the NIE had previously been disclosed in congressional reports.)

‘The fact that the NIE concluded that there was no operational tie between Saddam and al Qaeda did not offset this alarming assessment.’

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government lied to sell the American people an horrific, costly war which accomplished the following:

1. Destruction of the entire infrastructure of the country.
2. The deaths of thousands of Iraqis, by direct bombings and assassinations, as well as by the US military's use of depleted uranium, which caused horrific birth defects in the children of women who were exposed.
3. Civil war between the Shiites and Sunnis.
4. The arrival of ISIS and Al Qaeda, adding to new levels of instability.
5. The establishment of a vilely corrupt Iraqi government.
6. Slamming the US government with more unpayable debt.

Please read this document, and the next time you find you and your brother and sister Americans being "groomed" for another war, ask yourselves the question: what is in this war for We the People?!?

The honest answer will be, absolutely nothing.

Because these wars, be it Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Somalia, and Yemen, are always about expropriating resources for American or multi-national corporations to which the US government has absolutely no moral right, and enriching the coffers of major corporations through the pursuit of these wars.

And those Americans who died, or were maimed for life in these wars are simply collateral damage ultimately for corporate pursuit of private profit.

I am sorry, but I must be brutally honest here.

And yes, and I know that the loss of a Dad, Mom, Son, Daughter,friend, or other family member through war is an horrific tragedy, and something one never really gets over.

But this is why we need to make politicians accountable to We the People, so they do not race to war because it is a "convenient" way of resolving a geopolitical dispute.

And remember; unlike the President, Congressional representatives do not have to put their funds into a blind trust when they take the oath of office, and many of them have intense portfolio holdings in the military/industrial complex. So, if war "wins", they too "win" financially.

The American people need to take responsibility for NEVER allowing another Iraq war to happen, or any potential war based on a pack of lies. You can never, ever believe the government, because the government is only acting in its - and its corporate masters' - best interests, period, end of discussion.

Erdogan lashes out at foreign diplomat over 'behavior' at journalist trial

Turkish President Erdogan has 'warned' Britain's Consul-General after he attended the closed-door trial of two Turkish journalists. Erdogan implied that foreign diplomats were only tolerated in Turkey at his discretion.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan warned British Consul-General Leigh Turner over his attendance of the espionage trial of two journalists, at which Turner also took a picture of himself with one of the two accused reporters.

"The consul general of a certain country went to the trial of a journalist charged with espionage, to support him. Moreover he gets a picture taken cheek to cheek with the journalist and had it published," Erdogan told the state-run Anadolu news agency. He added that, in other countries, diplomats displaying such "behavior" would supposedly not be tolerated for a day.
"If this person can still continue service in Turkey, it's only because of our generosity and hospitality."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were it not for the horrific costs for the defendants if convicted (life in prison), this trial would be an absolute farce.

I can understand why NATO is distancing itself from Turkey right now, as it slides into the grip of fascism, paranoia, and dictatorship.

New $25 Million Fraud on Wall Street Is Making Some Rich Guys Nervous

Why Are Educators Learning How to Interrogate Their Students?

The training was led by Joseph Buckley, the president of John E. Reid and Associates, which is based in Chicago. Like the adult version of the Reid Technique, the school version involves three basic parts: an investigative component, in which you gather evidence; a behavioral analysis, in which you interview a suspect to determine whether he or she is lying; and a nine-step interrogation, a nonviolent but psychologically rigorous process that is designed, according to Reid’s workbook, “to obtain an admission of guilt.” Most of the I.P.A. session, Schneider told me, focused on behavioral analysis. Buckley described to trainees how patterns of body language—including slumping, failing to look directly at the interviewer, offering “evasive” responses, and showing generally “guarded” behaviors—could supposedly reveal whether a suspect was lying.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This interrogation of kids criminalises their behaviour, rather than look for the reasons the bad behaviour happened, and developing a practical plan, involving the kids' parents, from preventing it from happening again.

But this generates the kind of non-thinking, ever-compliant behavior corporations seem to want in what they would characterise as "model employees"...until those jobs can be outsourced/offshored, or those employees replaced by robots, if at all possible.

Were I a parent whose kid was in an educational institution which employed the "Reid Method", I would take that kid out of school, and either home school them, or put them into a private school so quickly that the principal's head would be turning around faster than that of Linda Blair in "The Exorcist"!!

SURVIVING ON THE BATTLEFIELD IN THE INFORMATION WAR

All protests, political movements, and armed struggles require immense amounts of resources to start, perpetuate, and most importantly to succeed. They also require leadership. If one finds themselves reading reports of events that do not mention funding or the names of specific leaders, either those reporting on the events don't have these facts and should make note that such information is both missing and essential to find, or misdirection and disinformation is at play.

The Fourth Branch of Government is Out of Control

America has witnessed a massive shift in government authority, says George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley—one that "has occurred without a national debate and certainly not a national vote."

To answer the question that is the title, we have to know of what the US consists.

The Constitution defines us as a people. Without the Constitution, we would be a different country. Therefore, to lose the Constitution is to lose the country.

FLASHBACK - The Spy Satellite Secrets in Hillary’s Emails

After months of denials and delaying actions, Hillary Clinton has decided to turn over her private email server to the Department of Justice. As this controversy has grown since the spring, Clinton and her campaign operatives have repeatedly denied that she had placed classified information in her personal email while serving as secretary of state during President Obama’s first term. (“I am confident that I never sent nor received any information that was classified at the time it was sent and received,” she said last month.) Her team also denied that she would ever hand over her server to investigators. Now both those assertions have been overturned.

Back in 1996, when Bill Clinton was running for re-election, he authorized the transfer of highly sensitive technology to China. This technology had military applications and allowed China to close the gap in missile performance with the United States. The transfers were opposed and severely criticized by the Defense Department.

Mail carrier handcuffed by 4 plainclothes officers in Brooklyn while delivering packages

The footage was released this week by Brooklyn Borough President Eric L. Adams, who said Grays had been "carrying out his normal duties" as a mail carrier when he got out of his truck and "a vehicle passed by him, almost striking him."

"He made comments to the vehicle, as any New Yorker would," Adams said at a news conference Wednesday. "The occupants of the vehicle stopped, backed up when he was crossing the street delivering the package."

Those occupants were the four plainclothes officers who followed Grays to his delivery stop, according to Adams. The video shows the officers tell Gray to "stop resisting." They then take him away in handcuffs, leaving his mail truck unattended.

Social Security: Broken Promises and Costly Changes

All funds collected in the name of Social Security were supposed to be kept in a sacrosanct “trust fund” where they would be distributed only to legitimate SS beneficiaries. But there never has been a trust fund because the federal government spends Social Security funds at will. In the vaunted trust fund will be found only a stack of IOUs issued by the federal government. This practice existed from Social Security’s inception. In 1937, the Supreme Court decreed that funds collected in the name of the program were labeled taxes that “are not earmarked in any way.”

Refugee Crisis: Using Chaos To Build Power

While the establishment’s demands on Europe to accept millions of Middle Eastern refugees have been couched in “humanitarian” rhetoric, the real agenda is nothing of the sort. Rather than helping out their fellow human beings, globalist forces actually created the refugee crisis and the suffering behind it. And they are using it to advance multiple, related agendas — primarily globalism and statism. That the crisis is being exploited to undermine Western culture, national sovereignty, and even nationhood itself is now beyond dispute. Top globalists are openly bragging about it.

Billionaire globalist and open-borders zealot George Soros, in denouncing European officials trying to control the human tsunami coming across their borders, similarly declared, “Our plan treats the protection of refugees as the objective and national borders as the obstacle.”

Bizarre case of activist incarcerated in The Hague

“Florence is in solitary isolation, totally segregated on what is called suicide watch, which in practice means that the light is on 24 hours a day and she is checked on every 15 minutes,” said her lawyer, Guénaël Mettraux.

Based on the motions Mettraux had filed, the activist could be released by Tuesday, he predicted.

The Tribeca Film Festival was co-founded by Robert De Niro, who has a child with autism and who originally supported the free speech efforts of filmmakers to create "an opportunity for conversation around the issue." But the vaccine totalitarians and media science trolls who demand absolute obedience to the fraudulent narrative that vaccines are "safe and effective" have zero tolerance for any intelligent conversations about vaccines. They demand utter surrender to the official story on vaccines, with no willingness to discuss any of the evidence revealing a known, documented link between vaccines and autism. Even more shockingly, they have now gone to extraordinary lengths to make sure that no one else has the right to see this film, either, because what they learn in this documentary might be wildly dangerous to the vaccine establishment.

Pro-Israel group targets Jewish professor over Palestine activism

Legislators around the United States are pushing forward bills, resolutions and blacklists to combat the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement.

This month, lawmakers in New York and Illinois advanced the countrywide anti-BDS effort.

New York senators voted to cut $485 million in state funding to City University of New York (CUNY), shifting the cost burden to the city.

Meanwhile, a CUNY professor who advises Students for Justice in Palestine was hauled before an investigative panel.

Republican State Senator Ken LaValle, who chairs the chamber’s committee on higher education, said the funding cut was meant to “send a message” to the university that it had not done enough to fight anti-Semitism on its campuses.

This will mark the latest in a series of US escalations in Iraq, which have put the US far above the 3,870 soldier limit they negotiated with Iraq. Pentagon officials concede the number of troops in Iraq is closer to 5,000 now, though the exact figure is not being disclosed.

Yet the Pentagon seems to be in a never-ending scramble to add more troops, sometimes only a few dozen at a time, sometimes a few hundred. Sending relatively small numbers each time has kept the individual deployments sparsely covered in the US press, and this avoids significant debate over the transition from a “no boots on the ground” war toward one in which thousands of US troops are at or near the front lines.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You have to appreciate the timing of this announcement; on Good Friday, right before the Easter weekend, most probably, to keep press attention at a minimum.

However, I do know one person, the Shiite cleric Moqtada Al Sadr, who is beginning to get very politically active again.

And if you do not remember who he is, let me refresh your memory; he was the man ultimately in charge of the Mahdi Army in Iraq, and the gentlemen who told the American military that if they did not leave Iraq precisely when stipulated by the SOFA agreement, that our American troops would be "fair game" for his militia.

And it is interesting to note that the article right below the above article, featured at antiwar.com, comes the following, reported from the unz review, and states:

Some 200 Iraqi political figures and members of foreign embassies have fled the Green Zone in Baghdad fearing that it may be invaded by hundreds of thousands of protesters enraged by the corruption and incompetence of the Iraqi government. The demonstrators are followers of the radical Shia cleric Muqtada al-Sadr, who once fought the US occupation and has re-emerged over the past month as the one leader who can tap into popular rage against a kleptocratic elite that many Iraqis see as having ruined their country. Furious crowds outside the Green Zone, which has become a symbol of the isolation and luxurious lifestyle of the Iraqi leadership, have been shouting: “Let’s get rid of them, they are all thieves.”

Now, if Al Sadr is NOT able to get the Iraqi government to agree to his demands for an end of corruption in the 45 days he has allotted them, what do you think will happen then?!?

So the BIG question, which no one wants to answer, but must be asked is: how long would it take Al Sadr to "get the band back together"; that is, how long would it take him to reconstitute the Mahdi Army?!?

The short answer is, not long at all.

I think the result, unfortunately, may be pretty ugly for our troops recently deployed to Iraq, and the Iraqi government itself.

And why?!? Because the US government and our military will then be put in a position of defending a corrupt government which absolutely does not care for the welfare of its own people.

The bottom line here is, if the US government cannot influence the current Iraqi government to make at least some of the changes the Iraqi people are demanding, we may well see a popular revolution against both the current Iraqi government and the United States, with Moqtada al Sadr ultimately at the head of a newly formed Iraqi government.

But unfortunately, this is precisely the kind of outcome one can readily expect from an American government and military which are pathologically incapable of thinking anything through to its logical conclusion before they ...do something.

U.S. AGENCIES’ USE OF INVASIVE AERIAL CELL PHONE SURVEILLANCE DETAILED IN NEWLY RELEASED DOCUMENTS

In November 2014, the ACLU sent a Freedom of Information Act request to several federal law enforcement agencies seeking information on their use of cell site simulators mounted on aircraft to track and locate cell phones, and today we’re releasing the records we obtained. Cell site simulators, also known as Stingrays, raise privacy concerns because they can sweep up information about bystanders’ phones and precisely locate people, including inside their homes. Flying a Stingray over a major metropolitan area magnifies the concern by subjecting potentially large numbers of bystanders to privacy violations.

The FOIA request, sent to the U.S. Marshals Service, FBI, Drug Enforcement Administration, and Immigration and Customs Enforcement, followed a Wall Street Journal report revealing that the Marshals Service has been using the airborne cell phone trackers since 2007.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am curious; how many bad guys were actually caught, charged, tried and convicted, though the use of this technology?!?

Because if the numbers of convictions gained from these intercepts are few and far between, this is an absolute, and outright, invasion of peoples' privacy for no darned good reason.

THE WORLD’S MOST FAMOUS ECONOMIC HITMAN CONFESSES – THEY’RE COMING FOR YOUR DEMOCRACY

Twelve years ago, John Perkins published his book, Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, and it rapidly rose up The New York Times’ best-seller list. In it, Perkins describes his career convincing heads of state to adopt economic policies that impoverished their countries and undermined democratic institutions. These policies helped to enrich tiny, local elite groups while padding the pockets of U.S.-based transnational corporations.

If economic pressure and threats didn’t work, Perkins says, the jackals were called to either overthrow or assassinate the noncompliant heads of state. That is, indeed, what happened to Allende, with the backing of the CIA.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, at 66, I barely recognise the country in which I was born, and which I thought I understood; and those values of humanity, democracy, equality are practiced now in the breach, rather than in their observance.

Shocking Church Billboard 'Stolen'

Thieves Steal Shocking Church Billboard Featuring Cartoon of Donald Trump Mocking Jesus as He Dies on the Cross — and Here’s the Pastor’s Response

“It is disappointing that someone decided to break the law and steal something that was stimulating a meaningful discussion in our community about the meaning of Easter,” he added.

“For those of us at St. Luke’s, the cross is about politics. Jesus was killed – violently, publically and shamefully – because he spoke truth to power and confronted the leaders of his day about their treatment of the outcasts,” he said. “To the Trumps of his day, and to those who see winners as having money and power, the Jesus of the Bible was a loser who associated with those rejected by society. And he died broke.”

Rule #1: Make sure you’re in a position of strength

The United States is not the first country to be founded on these ideas, and it won’t be the last.

Yet history shows that nearly every tribe, kingdom, empire, and nation throughout history that embraced individual liberty eventually screwed it up.

To quote John Adams, “those passions are the same in all men and under all forms of [government], and when unchecked, produce the same effects of fraud, violence, and cruelty.”

Muslims Are the VICTIMS of “Between 82 and 97% of Terrorism-Related Fatalities”: US Government

The Little-Known Secret to Destroying ISIS Propaganda
ISIS and Al Qaeda terrorist attacks on Westerners is evil.
And as a white American from a Judeo-Christian background, I am repulsed by the fact that ISIS is targeting Christians in Syria and Iraq with brutal murder … including crucifixion. [And these crimes are invariably not reported by the Western media.]

But most victims of ISIS, Al Qaeda and other Islamic terrorism are themselves Muslim.

The U.S. National Counterterrorism Center – the United States government organization responsible for national and international counterterrorism efforts – reported in 2011 (page 14):

In cases where the religious affiliation of terrorism casualties could be determined, Muslims suffered between 82 and 97% of terrorism-related fatalities over the past five years.

3-minute video: Public banks and monetary reform generate ~$1 million near-instant benefits for every US household: 2nd American Revolution more important than 1776

This article provides detailed history and data to explain what all macroeconomics courses teach: what we use for money is created as debt.

What these courses don’t usually teach are the consequences of creating what we use for money as negative numbers increasing forever: unpayable and ever-increasing total debt.

The top three benefits each of monetary reform and public banking total ~$1,000,000 for the average American household, and would be received nearly-instantly.

Foreknowledge of the Brussels Bombing: Why the Dots Are Not Connected

what is unprecedented about Tuesday’s events in Brussels is the rapidity with which the extent of state foreknowledge of the attacks has been revealed.
On Wednesday, Israeli daily Ha’aretz revealed that Belgian intelligence had precise information on when the attacks would occur and what their targets would be.

The next day, Turkish President Recep Erdogan said that one of the attackers involved in the airport bombing, Ibrahim el-Bakraoui, had been twice deported from Turkey to the Netherlands after trying to enter Syria, and that Belgian authorities had been told of his affiliation with Islamist militias. Ibrahim’s brother, Khalid, who participated in the attack on the Maelbeek metro station, was known to have been involved in November’s Paris attacks and had an international arrest warrant issued against him.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You have to take a good long look at this event, and previous terrorist events like it, and ask the question: cui bono?!? Who benefits?!?

And what are the agendas?!?

First, most probably, was the attempt to tar Syria with the claim that these attacks were planned in Raqqa; however, no concrete information has come forward to support this claim. The US government hoped that this would mobilise Americans to believe that "Syria must be stopped", and that a ground invasion of this country was the only way to end these attacks.

Fortunately, Americans have seen far too many of these false flags to put any credence into such codswallop, so there was no traction on public opinion from these incidents.

And when Kerry went go Moscow to wag his finger at Putin and Lavrov, insisting Al-Assad had to go, and now, he most probably got laughed out of the conference room.

The second was most probably to stop movement toward the Brexit, Frexit, and Grexit, and prevent Britain, France, and Germany from leaving the EU, but bind those members together even more closely through the establishment of an EU security force, separate from Interpol. Though I doubt this will happen, due to the economic problems each country is facing, as being part of the EU.

But what concerns me is that, if these agendas were not fulfilled by these horrific acts, what is next, and how will the US presstitutes and whorespondents be ordered to "spin it"?!?

Obama’s New Slogan? Drones & Bombs Don’t Kill People, People Kill People

While railing against domestic gun violence, the US president is placing high-tech weapons in the hands of dictators, scoring record profits for corporations that make killing machines.

In an editorial published on Wednesday, Truthout’s Owen McCormack took President Obama to task, blasting him as the "Arms Dealer in Chief." In the piece, McCormack points out that, while Obama calls for stricter domestic gun control, the US president has also spearheaded a proliferation of arms sales to foreign governments.

"At BarackObama.com, for example, President Obama is described as a purveyor of peace who is at odds with an unenlightened Congress," writes McCormack.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If there were such a thing as a Presidential Hypocrisy Index (the PHI), President Obama would really have to be very close to the top of that ranking.

Wait, What? Ted Cruz Insists US Has ‘Never Engaged in Torture’

US Senator and presidential hopeful Ted Cruz, who has changed his stance on torture multiple times, on Wednesday falsely claimed that the United States has “never engaged in torture.”

Appearing on Fox & Friends, Cruz was asked whether he would engage in torture, enhanced interrogation, or waterboarding — methods which Republican frontrunner Donald Trump has emphatically championed, despite the practice being illegal and ineffective.

Ted Cruz may be getting a lot of serious media attention as the first candidate to announce 2016 presidential bid, but so is his website's launch. And it's not been a good first impression.

U.S. lawmakers urge Obama to allow CIA target-killing of IS leaders: report

Leaders of the U.S. Senate intelligence committee were secretly pushing President Barack Obama to allow the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to carry out target killings against Islamic State (IS) leaders, local media reported Thursday.

A bipartisan plea had recently been sent to Obama to reconsider a policy guidance issued in 2013 that stated that the U.S. military rather than the CIA should carry out targeted strikes, U.S. TV network NBC News reported.

The plea was sent before the Brussels attacks, said NBC, quoting U.S. officials as saying that Obama was unlikely to change what he believed was a "successful high-value targeting effort."

At the outset of his presidency, Obama ramped up CIA drone missile strikes in Pakistan and Yemen, viewing them as an effective tool for degrading the extremist group al-Qaida.

However, in 2013, a policy guidance was issued that confined CIA drone activities to intelligence gathering.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a nation allegedly of laws, where do more extrajudicial assassinations get us?!?

It appears that those legislators clamoring for this kind of action are "low logic" representatives of the people of the states they represent, because these assassinations become an incredible recruiting tool for jihadist groups.

But of course, many legislators like this, because their personal portfolios may well be tied to the military industrial complex, and perpetual war simply enhances their personal portfolios.

Moment NYPD cop shoots a dog DEAD at pointblank range with single bullet to the head even though beloved pet was not attacking him

These shocking pictures show the gruesome moment an NYPD cop shot dead a family's dog in what appears to be an unprovoked attack.

Two police officers were responding to a call at a neighboring apartment in the Bronx when Yvonne Rosado opened her door to see what the commotion was about.

Surveillance footage obtained by the New York Daily News shows her four-year-old pitbull, Spike, wandering out into the hallway and excitedly wagging his tail.

The barking dog - who seems more playful than aggressive - approaches one of the cops, who has already withdrawn his gun.

The spooked police officer backs down the stairwell before opening fire, fatally wounding Spike with a single gunshot to the head.

You gotta be a real MANLY man to shoot the family pet! (Apologies to Ron White).

Brussels attacks: How Saudi Arabia's influence and a deal to get oil contracts sowed seeds of radicalism in Belgium

There are many reasons why Belgium has become a hotbed of radical Islamism. Some of the answers may lie in the implanting of Saudi Salafist preachers in the country from the 1960s. Keen to secure oil contracts, Belgium’s King Baudouin made an offer to Saudi King Faisal, who had visited Brussels in 1967: Belgium would set up a mosque in the capital, and hire Gulf-trained clerics. At the time, Belgium was encouraging Moroccan and Turkish workers to come into the country as cheap labour. The deal between the two Kings would make the mosque their main place of worship.

The Federal Reserve’s years-long campaign to sheepishly back away from its own policy forecasts continued in earnest last week when it officially reduced the four expected 2016 quarter point hikes, suggested back in December, to just two. Given the deteriorating economic outlook, I believe there can be little doubt that the Fed will soon complete the capitulation process and remove all expectations for additional hikes this year. Even before that happens, savvy observers should have already concluded that the Federal Reserve is stuck in the monetary mud just as firmly now as it has been since the dawn of the financial crisis back in 2008.

ISIS, oil & Turkey: RT films trove of jihadist docs detailing illegal trade with Ankara

An RT Documentary crew filming in northern Syria has seen Islamic State (IS, ISIS/ISIL) documents abandoned by retreating terrorists and found by the Kurds that, along with captured IS recruits, provide a stunning insight into the alleged Turkey-IS oil trade links.
Trends
Islamic State, Syria unrest, Syria-Turkey
Shortly after the outbreak of the Syrian war, IS became a game-changer in Iraq and, in particular, Syria. Beheadings on camera, mass killings, and enslavement, as well as apparent connections to the Paris and Brussels attacks had become synonymous with the terror group, giving it wide publicity.

Running a viable militant organization with such remarkable capabilities would be impossible without some logistical and financial support from the outside.

FEDERAL COURT SLAMS IRS IN TEA PARTY TARGETING CASE

On Thursday a federal appeals court finally ran out of patience with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and slammed the attorneys defending the agency. Judge Raymond Kethledge, writing for the three-judge panel of the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, said:

Among the most serious allegations a federal court can address are that an executive agency [such as the IRS] has targeted citizens for mistreatment based on their political views. No citizen … should be targeted or even have to fear being targeted, on those grounds.

Yet those are the grounds on which the plaintiffs allege they were mistreated by the IRS.… The allegations are substantial.

Governments of the World are Coming for Your Cash

Banks can’t exist without deposits. Keeping money in a mattress is preferable to being financially bled to death with negative rates. Central bankers are well aware of this and are already prepositioning policies and taking steps to prevent the coming exodus. Outlawing large denominational physical cash and large cash transactions will be used to financially imprison the public while the negative interest rates simultaneously pick their pocket.

How low would negative rates have to go before you withdrew all of your money from the bank?

Cops in Brooklyn arrest a US postal worker while he's delivering a package after he'd criticized their driving

The recent arrest of an on-duty U.S. Postal Service (USPS) employee in Crown Heights was unjustified, racially motivated and “could have been another Eric Garner situation," Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams said at a Tuesday press conference. yesterday. Glenn Grays, 27, was arrested by four plainclothes officers on March 17 on President Street, Adams said.

Prior to the arrest, Grays was nearly hit by an unmarked police vehicle as he exited his USPS truck, he said.Grays then “made comments, as any New Yorker would do,” Adams said — prompting the four officers in the vehicle, including one lieutenant, to jump out of their car and surround him on the sidewalk.

Israel - Map Censorship

What is the difference between a textbook publisher giving into pressure from Christian fundamentalists seeking to censor the teaching of evolution, and a publisher giving in to Zionists seeking to censor awareness of the ethnic cleansing of Palestine? Neither phenomenon is a matter of opinion or perspective. One act of censorship denies facts established by scientific research. The other denies the documented violation of international law (for instance, the Fourth Geneva Convention) and multiple UN resolutions. So the answer to the question just asked is – there is no difference.

Why Hillary Clinton Should Fear Robert Kagan

She should fear Robert Kagan because he provides an intellectual basis for her worst instincts. Her instincts are to solve problems by force, to assert American might. And then most of the problems we’re facing now—the lead of our foreign policy should not be force. Force has got to be there, and it's got to play a role, particularly in the issue of terrorism, fighting terrorism. But basically, it’s got to be diplomacy and economics, and organizing alliances for action to tackle these problems. That’s got to come first. And Kagan really doesn’t put much store in organizing coalitions to tackle problems—it’s all about assertion of American might.

The U.S. Government Continues Torture Practices As American Public Remains Silent

While the Republican and Democratic presidential candidates may differ on some issues, when it comes to continuing the War on Terror’s disastrous policies, not a single R or D will significantly change the path. This includes the use of torture...

America’s Fake War Against ISIS Grinds On

A recent US Senate Armed Services Committee (SASC) hearing considering the nominations of General Joseph Votel and Lieutenant General Raymond Thomas for command of US Central Command and US Special Operations Command respectively, exposed the absurdity of America’s war on the so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS).

While the Syrian Arab Army backed by Russian airpower successfully cuts off entire armies of terrorists from their supplies abroad, while encircling and eradicating them within Syrian territory, the US appears instead to be attempting to stretch out ISIS’ existence while maintaining the illusion of fighting the terrorist organization for as long as possible.

TURKEY’S ERDOGAN WARNS OF ATTACKS IN BRUSSELS FOUR DAYS BEFORE EVENT TOOK PLACE

In an instance of bizarre timing or, perhaps, foreknowledge, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan warned Europe only four days agothat it could see terrorist bombings and attacks in its cities in the near future if it does not cease support for and cooperation with Kurdish “militants.”
Interestingly enough, Erdogan mentioned Brussels as a potential target by name.

Only four days before the Brussels attacks, Erdogan spoke at a commencement ceremony for the 101st anniversary of the Battle of Gallipoli in Canakkale, Turkey on March, 18 where he stated that “there is no reason why the bomb that exploded in Ankara cannot explode in Brussels, in any other European city.”

“The snakes you are sleeping with can bite you any time,” he added.

While ISIS, a Western-created and NATO-directed terrorist organization, has claimed credit for the bombings, it should be pointed out that Erdogan was referring to “Kurdish militants,” whom Turkey considers terrorists.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In the world of geopolitics, there is almost no such thing as coincidence...

One has to wonder if Edrogan was just spouting off, to hear himself speak, or had some kind of foreknowledge, and if that was the case, why he did not share what he knew with Belgian authorities?!?

The New Big Brother: How Social Media Is Creating An ‘Orwellian’ Society

Joint research conducted by academics from the University of Edinburgh Business School, the University of Bath and the University of Birmingham have uncovered previously held concerns about how social media is affecting the lives of young, impressionable users. Following in-depth interviews with a number of 19-22-year-old Britons, the study found that many Facebook users were self-censoring their day-to-day lives, known as a “chilling effect” to avoid disapproval from online friends. “The vast majority of the ones that participated in the study had been, to an extent, chilling their behavior, due to the fear of what would go online,” Dr Ben Marder, researcher from the University of Edinburgh Business School, told Sputnik.

Obama says world must unite against terror after Brussels attack

The terrorist bombings in Belgium on Tuesday are "another reminder we must unite" in the fight against terrorism, President Obama said before a speech to the Cuban people here this morning.

"We will do whatever is necessary to support our friends in Belgium," Obama said.

“We stand in solidarity with them in condemning these outrageous attacks against innocent people,” he said. “This is yet another reminder that the world must unite, we must be together.”

Obama was briefed on the Brussels explosions Tuesday morning at at the U.S. Embassy in Havana, where he was staying on the third day of his Cuban visit, White House officials said.

He spoke to Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel before the speech and offered the condolences of the American people, the White House said. Obama offered U.S. assistance in investigating the attacks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to President Barack Hussein Obama; sir, I am all for all of humanity standing shoulder to shoulder, against terror.

But what, sir about the terror the US military has been unleashing on the world for the last two decades, primarily to expropriate natural resources to which this country, and the corporations which so lavishly fund its politicians, have absolutely no moral right?!?

In Iraq, where Saddam Hussein destroyed all of his MWDs, which President Bush claimed he still had, the US military went in to control the country's oil and make sure that all oil sold was only sold in US dollars.

In Afghanistan, the war there (going into its 14th year, if my math is correct) was about leasing pipeline routes, the embarrassment of riches in minerals, and the opium crop.

In Israel, the alleged "war on terror", aided and abetted by US technology and weaponry, has been a war against the Palestinian people, and has included serial genocide; the indefinite detention of Palestinian children, who are tortured to sign confessions in a language they neither read nor understand (Hebrew), and where homes in which Palestinian families have lived for generations, have been brutally annexed for settler occupation.

In Yemen, the US-enabled, intelligence-equipped, and armed Saudi military has been assassinating civilians; destroying hospitals and schools; and private residences.

Sir, it is apparent that I need to remind you that such activities are war crimes, because you seem to have managed to conveniently forgotten that. Can we attribute that, perhaps, to SMD (selective memory disorder)?!?

Then, Mr. President, we have the issue of extrajudicial assassinations. This is so immorally far from the Constitution and Bill of Rights, that I do not know where to begin.

But the right to due process, which those assassinated never get, is enshrined in American jurisprudence. And you, as a former lawyer and Constitutional law lecturer, sir, should know this.

And what is even worse is, our military is only killing the alleged "bad guys"; they are also killing innocent infants, children, women, and the medically fragile, with these drone attacks.

And finally, Mr. President, there is the reality that the US government has this pathological habit of propping up tinpot dictators, because these people are "our thugs".

There are few better examples of this than US support for the Al-Khalifa monarchy of Bahrain, with a human rights record just to the right of that of Attila the Hun. This Sunni royal family, and their government, is constantly suppressing the Shiite majority here, and you turn a blind eye to this oppression, because Bahrain is home to the Navy's 5th Fleet. This country has not only arrested, and tortured, peaceful protestors, but also the first responders who cared for them after they were beaten and tortured by the Bahraini police.

And the late President Kennedy said it best; "When peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution is inevitable." And sir, that is precisely what we are ultimately looking at here in Bahrain.

In summation, Mr. President, the US government CANNOT reclaim the moral high ground in the world until it:

1. Stops these insane and immoral pre-emptive wars of aggression.
2. Stops propping up tinpot dictators, because, ultimately their people will successfully rebel against them (Do you remember the 1979 Iran revolution, sir, when the Iranians deposed the Shah of Iran?!? This country's leadership SHOULD remember this, as a lesson in the ultimate consequences of installing a dictator in a foreign country).
3. Starts negotiating in good faith, in a fair and moral way, with countries with which we have intense geopolitical disagreements.

Also, there are a number of Border Patrol checkpoints in the northern border states (New York or Maine), within 100 miles from the Canadian border. Fyi, nearly 200 million Americans live within the 100-mile interior checkpoint zone. Things are about to get much worse, expect to see more checkpoints across the U.S. after the recent Rynearson v.

America Created Al-Qaeda and the ISIS Terror Group

Much like Al Qaeda, the Islamic State (ISIS) is made-in-the-USA, an instrument of terror designed to divide and conquer the oil-rich Middle East and to counter Iran’s growing influence in the region.

The fact that the United States has a long and torrid history of backing terrorist groups will surprise only those who watch the news and ignore history.

The CIA first aligned itself with extremist Islam during the Cold War era. Back then, America saw the world in rather simple terms: on one side, the Soviet Union and Third World nationalism, which America regarded as a Soviet tool; on the other side, Western nations and militant political Islam, which America considered an ally in the struggle against the Soviet Union.

Truth emerges: The U.S. created ISIS!

You've probably heard or read somewhere that the United States government is responsible for the creation of the renegade Islamist terror organization known as ISIS. It may be tempting to write off the idea as some nutty conspiracy theory, Kremlin propaganda or at least a misinterpretation of the facts, but there is mounting evidence supporting the assertion – even the mainstream media outlets are now covering the story.

A recent op/ed piece published by The Guardian sheds some light on the subject – one which is admittedly complex and multifaceted, but not impossible to describe or understand in basic terms.

In the piece, titled "Now the truth emerges: how the US fueled the rise of Isis in Syria and Iraq," Seumas Milne outlines the series of events and policies that led to the rise of ISIS. As the details continue to surface, the extent of the US government's role has begun to be revealed:

ISRAEL'S CELLEBRITE REVEALED AS COMPANY HELPING FBI HACK IPHONE ENCRYPTION

In the aftermath of the FBI's surprising request on Monday to postpone a hearing in its legal crusade to unlock Apple cellphones, many wondered who it was that had succeeded in penetrating the supposedly unhackable smartphone. Earlier today Reuters provided the answer: the FBI's effort is being assisted by Israel's Cellebrite, a provider of mobile forensic software, which is now helping the Feds in their attempt to unlock an iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino, California shooters, the Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper reported on Wednesday.

If Cellebrite succeeds, then the FBI will no longer need the help of Apple Inc, the Israeli daily said, citing unnamed industry sources. It will also mean that the entire Apple "stand" for privacy and consumer rights was one big theatrical spectacle as both parties involved clearly were aware the iPhone can be penetrated with the right tools. Aptly enough, said tools have been found in Israel.

7 STRANGE QUESTIONS ABOUT THE BRUSSELS TERROR ATTACKS THAT THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA IS NOT ASKING

The horrific terror attacks in Brussels, Belgium on March 22, 2016 are going to reverberate in our memories for years to come, and perhaps that was the intention. Terror attacks are designed to create fear and to get attention, and these attacks have definitely done both. On Tuesday morning, two huge explosions ripped through Zaventem Airport in Brussels as travelers were getting ready to board their morning flights. You can view some raw footage of one of the bomb blasts right here. Just a short while later, another huge explosion was reported at a metro station just yards away from the European Commission headquarters. At this point, CNN says that at least 30 people have died and about 230 people are wounded as a result of these bombings. But what was the real motive for these attacks?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Our hearts, (and some of our prayers),naturally, go out to the families and friends of those who were killed and wounded in this horrific attack.

But even in our collective sense of being shaken badly by this incident, we have to pull ourselves together, and ask the logical, sang-foid question; cui bono?!? Who benefits?!?

It is certainly NOT Syria, from where most of the Jihadists have fled, and Russia's leadership has stated that they will unilaterally defend Syria from any outside attack against Syrian soil.

I'm looking at the Faux News feed (which I can only do with the sound off, to prevent intense nausea), and Andy Mc Carthy, a former US Assistant Attorney for the Southern District of New York, made the statement to the effect that if these attacks were planned in Syria or Iraq, it poses a grave security problem for the US.

However, to date,and to the best of my understanding, there is no concrete evidence which has been presented that this was, in fact,the case.

There are certain, powerful elements in this government, and beyond, (think: the Saudi Arabian and Turkish governments) who would love to see the US military invade Syria, to get rid of Al-Assad; of course, that, most probably, means war with Russia.

There are certain, powerful elements in this government and beyond, who would love to see the US military completely re-invade Iraq; they, of course, are willfully ignore thinking about the powerful Shiite Cleric, Moqtada Al Sadr, who recently has been a peaceful force against the corruption of the Iraqi government, but could reconstitute his Mahdi army against American forces in a heartbeat.

There are certain powerful elements in this government, and beyond, who would love a complete US reinvasion/occupation of Libya, to control its oil, and have it sold only for US dollars.

How this attack is ultimately going to be spun remains to be seen; but trust me - it will be spun, most probably to support one of the agendas I have outlined above.

Report: U.S., Michigan face dire consequences if Soo Locks fail

From AIPAC to Trump: Michael Glassner’s journey

How does one go from serving as AIPAC’s Southwest Regional Political Director a year ago to running Donald Trump’s national political operation today?
Ever since Trump announced his White House bid last June, Michael Glassner has been serving as his campaign’s national political director. In part, he is credited with landing the coveted Sarah Palin endorsement ahead of the Iowa Caucus last month.

Upon moving to New Jersey in the late nineties, Glassner served as a senior advisor to Lewis Eisenberg, the then-Chairman of the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey and a prominent Republican Jewish leader. He worked out of the Port Authority’s World Trade Center office but left just before 9/11 to join IDT Corp in Newark. Glassner credits his former boss, IDT founder Howard Jonas, whom he referred to as “a strong Zionist and an AIPAC guy,” with encouraging him to become more active in pro-Israel politics.

“Families Were Blown Up” — Scenes From a Saudi-Led Bombing in Yemen

Around midday on March 15, fighter jets from a Saudi-led coalition bombed a market in Mastaba, in Yemen’s northern province of Hajjah. The latest count indicates that about 120 people were killed, including more than 20 children, and 80 were wounded in the strikes — perhaps the deadliest attack yet in a war that has killed more than 6,000 civilians. Local residents and health officials say the carnage was so great in Mastaba that most of the bodies could hardly be identified, and several were beyond recognition.

Before We Even Know The Details, Politicians Rush To Blame Encryption For Brussels Attacks

You may remember that, right after the Paris attacks late last year, politicians rushed in to demonize encryption as the culprit, and to demand backdooring encryption before the blood was even dry. Of course, it later turned out that there was no evidence that they used encryption at all, but rather it appears that they communicated by unencrypted means. Just yesterday, we noted that the press was still insisting encryption was used, and using the lack of any evidence as evidence for the fact they must have used encryption (hint: that's not how encryption works...).

So, it should hardly be a surprise that following this morning's tragic attacks in Brussels that have left dozens dead and many more injured, that encryption haters, based on absolutely nothing, have rushed in to attack encryption again. The first up was Rep. Adam Schiff, who quickly insisted that he had no actual facts on the matter, but we should be concerned about encryption:

Feds gain postponement of iPhone hearing

Citing a new possible way to access a locked iPhone used by a shooter in the San Bernardino terrorist attack, the Justice Department on Monday convinced a federal court to cancel a Tuesday hearing on whether Apple should be forced to help the FBI break into the device.

Government lawyers had insisted for months they needed Apple to write special software so the FBI could bypass security features on the iPhone being used by the San Bernardino shooter, Syed Farook, and obtain what could be critical information for their ongoing terrorism investigation.

But the Justice Department unexpectedly told the court just hours before a scheduled hearing that it may not need Apple’s assistance after all.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This story turned into a PR nightmare for the government. And they are in a corner. After all the stink they raised about this one iPhone (which wasn't even a personal iPhone of the patsies) the public would demand to see what was found on it. The fact that there might be nothing useful on the iPhone would be an embarrassment; data that contradicts the official story a disaster!

Shadow Government: Why All Campaign Promises Die in the Oval Office

Have you ever noticed how politicians like Trump who are campaigning for president, often make sweeping statements as to how they will end wars, shore up the economy, build walls on the border, fix income gaps, etc, while on the campaign trail? Then after the election, and all the votes are tallied, they ascend to the highest office in the land and over the course of their entire administration not one thing ever changes. Every single grandiose campaign promise made goes unaddressed and floats off into the collective memory hole. There is a good reason for this, it is called the Shadow Government, or Continuity of Government (COG).
