DOJ Admits FBI Forensic Examiners Gave False Testimony for Decades

In response to a Washington Post investigation, the Department of Justice and FBI have formally admitted that the majority of FBI forensic hair analysts provided flawed testimony and false evidence against criminal defendants for nearly three decades. With the advent of DNA testing, the FBI has discovered that their own forensic examiners gave erroneous testimony in more than 95% of cases that have been reviewed. Due to the fact that FBI analysts provided scientifically invalid testimony for decades, numerous innocent convicts have been exonerated and released from prison.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Except for the ones who were executed, and the FBI feels really bad about them!

Exclusive: Wary of natural disaster, NY Fed bulks up in Chicago

The New York branch of the U.S. Federal Reserve, wary that a natural disaster or other eventuality could shut down its market operations as it approaches an interest rate hike, has added staff and bulked up its satellite office in Chicago.

Some market technicians have transferred from New York and others were hired at the office housed in the Chicago Fed, according to several people familiar with the build-out that began about two years ago, after Hurricane Sandy struck Manhattan.

Officials believe the Chicago staffers can now handle all of the market operations that are done daily out of the New York Fed, which is the U.S. central bank's main conduit to Wall Street.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't think it is a natural disaster they are worried about so much as an angry mob with torches and pitchforks descending on Wall Street ... like the people of Illinois with torches and pitchforks don't know the FED is there as well!

Pennsylvania police officer charged with murdering suspect

A Pennsylvania police officer waived a preliminary hearing Monday on charges that she murdered a man who had run away from a traffic stop by shooting him twice in the back as he lay face-down in the snow.

Officer Lisa Mearkle, 36, appeared before a district judge on Monday and waived her right to a hearing to determine whether there was enough evidence to justify a trial. She is free on $250,000 bail with electronic monitoring.

The victim, David Kassick, 59, of Hummelstown, died shortly after being shot on Feb. 2. Kassick, who like Mearkle was white, was unarmed and had run away from a traffic stop.

The case is the latest in a string of controversial police shootings captured on video. Earlier this month, a South Carolina policeman was charged with murder for fatally shooting an unarmed man in the back as he ran away.

Courtroom erupts after judge finds Chicago cop not guilty in Rekia Boyd fatal shooting trial

A judge on Monday found Chicago police officer Dante Servin not guilty of involuntary manslaughter, saying there was no evidence he acted recklessly when he killed Rekia Boyd, 22, in an off-duty shooting in 2012.

After a four-day bench trial, which is heard before a judge without a jury, Cook County Associate Judge Dennis Porter said in a written finding that Servin’s actions were intentional and so did not fit the charges brought by the state’s attorney.

Boyd’s family erupted in shouts and tears after the ruling.

“They said a lot of charges didn’t fit,” said Boyd’s brother, Martinez Sutton, outside the courthouse, in tears. “I was promised that they were going to take this officer down.”

A few protesters held a large sign reading “STOP murder by police” and photographs of some 20 black people who have been killed by police across the country, including Boyd.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The killings of MANY unarmed people in the Police State of Amerika has grown exponentially, and partially because police across the country are getting their training from former, or current, members of Israel's IDF, which means that now, US citizens are treated with the same deadly contempt as are the Palestinians.

And the only thing the police officer has to say at the trial, to get him or her legally off the hook, is that they "believed their lives to be in danger."

That's it,folks.

Heads Up: Gov’t plans to Tax our Savings Accounts

A new political scheme to tax bank accounts, according to the Australian Financial Review, might be locked in place in Australian banks as soon as January 1, 2016. [1-4] This could quickly be copied by other tax-hungry welfare states, including ours.

This bank deposit tax will likely begin at a low percentage, to create a legal precedent; but it is expected to grow rapidly, as the income tax did in the United States.

Like many modern taxes, this planned tax on bank accounts is being framed as a tax on the banks, not on individual customers. Its cost, however, will be passed on to depositors in the form of higher fees or lower interest paid on their accounts.

This tax on bank deposits is projected from its start to raise around $500 million each year, purportedly for a “Financial Stabilization Fund” to help protect banks from collapse in future financial crises.

BILL BEFORE CONGRESS WOULD AUTHORIZE SECRECY AND SURVEILLANCE, NOT "CYBER SECURITY"

A provision in the falsely-named "cyber security" bill currently being debated in congress would—in addition to enabling more warrantless government spying—create a gaping hole in the Freedom of Information Act, potentially allowing federal agencies to keep secret any information they don't want made public. The new exemption to FOIA would cover all "information shared with or provided to the Federal Government" through the so-called "cyber security" information sharing program, Politico reports.

Senators Chuck Grassley and Pat Leahy have raised concerns about the provision. Politico quotes Grassley from a 2012 hearing on a similar proposal:

Bail-in powers implementation

The Special Resolution Regime (SRR) established in the Banking Act 2009 (“the Banking Act”) confers a number of resolution powers on the Bank of England and HM Treasury. The Financial Services (Banking Reform) Act 2013 (the 2013 Act) confers on the Bank of England a further option for the resolution for banks, building societies, investment firms, and certain banking group companies: the bail-in stabilisation option.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Basically, Great Britain has set up the mechanism they need to loot savings accounts to save the big banks.

STUNNED GREEKS REACT TO INITIAL CAPITAL CONTROLS AND THE “DECREE TO CONFISCATE RESERVES”, AND THEY ARE NOT HAPPY

Earlier today, following weeks of speculation, Greece finally launched the first shot across the bow of capital controls, when it decreed that due to an “extremely urgent and unforeseen need” (ironically the need was quite foreseen since about 2010, but that is a different story), it would be “obliged” to transfer – as in confiscate - “idle cash reserves”located across the country’s local governments (i.e., various cities and municipalities) to the Greek central bank.

Bloomberg reports, that “as Greece struggles to find cash to stay afloat, local authorities say they oppose a government decision to use their reserves for short-term financing.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So now, to fulfill their obligations to the IMF, Greeks are going to be robbed of the money they have earned?!?

IF I were a Greek citizen, with my account wiped out to pay the country's IMF obligations, I would be very, very, very angry right now.

MPAA Strategized On How To 'Tell The Positive Side' Of Internet Censorship

The MPAA, which likes to declare itself one of the foremost defenders of free speech, was literally conspiring on how to create propaganda in favor of censorship, pointing to countries that already censor the web as "good examples" to follow. You'd think they would have learned from the time Bono tried to use China's censorship as an example of how to deal with copyright infringement what a ridiculous idea this is.

Urgent action needed: FDA planning to regulate and control homeopathic remedies

Homeopathic remedies have been a trusted, safe method of healing for more than a century. Not only is it safe and effective, it is also proven, so much so that some countries in Europe even cover its use on health insurance.

However, in the United States, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has set its sights on homeopathic remedies and our access to it. This behavior is threatening the freedom of choice when it comes to personal health for millions of people in the U.S. – who rely on homeopathy for their health concerns.

THE BANKSTER WAR ON CASH; JP MORGAN CHASE BEGINS TO PROHIBIT THE STORAGE OF CASH IN ITS SAFETY DEPOSIT BOXES

Letters are apparently going out to some JPMoragnChase customers announcing that cash will be prohibited from being stored in the bank's safety deposit boxes.

At the Collectors Universe message board, a commenter reports:
My mother has a SDB at a Chase branch with one of my siblings as co-signers. Last week they got a letter outlining a number of changes to the lease agreement, including this:

"Contents of the box: You agree not to store any cash or coins other than those found to have a collectible value."

Another change is that signatures will no longer be accepted to access the box. The next time they go in they have to bring two forms of ID and they will be issued a four-digit pin number that will be used to access the box then and in the future.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, this is the prelude to currency controls in this country, and it will not be pretty.

If you believe that a Cypress-style account "haircut" cannot happen here, you need to think again.

Please have no more money in your checking account than you absolutely need to pay your bills.

POLICE WORKING WITH DHS & MOTOROLA ARE USING PRIVATE SURVEILLANCE CAMERAS TO CREATE A MASSIVE SPY NETWORK

When a 911 call comes in, St. Louis police now may be able to see the scene before responding officers have time to arrive.

It’s part of the Real Time Crime Center, opened Thursday to bring together an array of electronic resources — including a network of public and private surveillance cameras!

DHS puppet, St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson said:

“Today is a great day for law enforcement and a bad day for criminals in the city of St. Louis.” That says it all right there, law enforcement considers it a great day, when private corporations work with law enforcement to spy on you. Dotson adds, “Cameras in public space are a part of everyday life. The case study is there, the examples are there, we’re just getting caught up.”

Access to private cameras also means not having to wait for a business to open to examine its recorded images, Lt. Brent Feig said. “We’re really leveraging the public space,” he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were I a resident of St. Louis, I do not believe that I would be "more safe", with this equipment in place; rather, I would understand that the 4th Amendment,which used to protect US citizens against unreasonable search and seizure, no longer exists in practice, nationally.

I understand that I continue to sound like a chipped CD on this issue, but people with skills and kids, GET THE HELL OUT OF THIS COUNTRY WHILE YOU STILL CAN!!

A professor at the highly esteemed Princeton University doesn’t want his Obamacare premiums to increase because of caring for severely disabled babies.

Nobel and Pulitzer Prize winning author Toni Morrison took a harsh view on the issue of racial disparities in the justice system during a recent interview.

“People keep saying, ‘We need to have a conversation about race,” Morrison, 84, told The (U.K.) Telegraph.

“This is the conversation. I want to see a cop shoot a white unarmed teenager in the back,” Morrison said.

When a Cop Killed an Innocent White Youth, the Press Was Silent

When a Black Cop Killed an Innocent White Youth in Utah, the Press Was Silent
It has been reported that cops kill about 500 innocent Americans per year. More whites than blacks are victims of deadly police shootings. Yet most of those stories stay buried or at best, see limited life in local media or the blogosphere. Only the select, as in selected by the media, stories become as big as the Michael Brown story. Certain stories simply transcend the perceived boredom of news headlines and become a part of pop culture.

Does the media intentionally stir up racial hatred? Is it part of their agenda?

Newly Leaked TTIP Draft Reveals Far-Reaching Assault on US/EU Democracy

A freshly-leaked chapter from the highly secretive Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) agreement, currently under negotiation between the United States and European Union, reveals that the so-called "free trade" deal poses an even greater threat to environmental and human rights protections—and democracy itself—than previously known, civil society organizations warn.

The revelation comes on the heels of global protests against the mammoth deal over the weekend and coincides with the reconvening of negotiations between the parties on Monday in New York.

The European Commission's latest proposed chapter (pdf) on "regulatory cooperation" was first leaked to Friends of the Earth and dates to the month of March. It follows previous leaks of the chapter, and experts say the most recent iteration is even worse.

‘Release cards’ turn inmates and their families into profit stream

In 2013 Gregg Cavaluzzi walked out of federal prison with nothing more than the clothes he wore going in five years earlier and a Chase-branded debit card holding what remained of money sent by family members and the meager pay he’d earned working in the prison library.

“They simply gave me the debit card and said ‘Your money’s on it,’” he recalled.

But when he used the card to pay for a celebratory meal at Wendy’s, Cavaluzzi noticed that his balance was lower than he expected. “I called Chase and they said there’s an administrative fee and a fee every time you use it at an ATM,” he said. As Cavaluzzi would soon discover, those were just two of several fees attached to his card. “There were fees for transferring the money to a bank and closing the account. There was even an inactivity fee if you didn't use the card for 90 days. I left prison with $120. Because of the fees I was only able to use about $70 of it.”

Prosecutors drop robbery case to preserve stingray secrecy in St. Louis

Prosecutors in St. Louis, Missouri, have seemingly allowed four robbery suspects to go free instead of explaining law enforcement’s use of a stingray in court proceedings.

The St. Louis case provides yet another real-world example where prosecutors have preferred to drop charges instead of fully disclose how the devices, also known as cell-site simulators, work in the real world. Last year, prosecutors in Baltimore did the same thing during a robbery trial.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If use of the Stingray means you cannot prosecute the criminals you find with it, then why use it at all in the first place?What is Stingray really doing that the government would rather allow criminals go free to continue their criminality than inform the public what the system does?

Court sentences ousted Egypt president to 20 years in prison

An Egyptian criminal court on Tuesday sentenced ousted Islamist President Mohammad Morsi to 20 years in prison over the killing of protesters in 2012, the first verdict to be issued against the country's first freely elected leader.

The Cairo Criminal Court issued the verdict as Morsi and other defendants in the case - mostly Muslim Brotherhood leaders - stood in a soundproof glass cage inside a makeshift courtroom at Egypt's national police academy.

The case stems from violence outside the presidential palace in December 2012. Morsi's supporters attacked opposition protesters, sparking clashes that killed at least 10 people.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The 20 year sentence isn't for the killing of protesters, but for daring to oust the US puppet Mubarak! Still, compared to other leaders who defied the empire, like Saddam and Gaddafi, Morsi got off lucky, still being alive and all.

Trans-Pacific Partnership: Not About Free Trade

The TPP covers a bewildering range of topics. In addition to conventional trade issues like tariff rates, it includes language on labor rights, environmental laws, copyright and patent protections, e-commerce, state-owned enterprises, corruption, and government procurement.

Trade deals like the TPP have grown so complex because the global trade community has figured out how to solve a problem that has bedeviled philosophers and political leaders for centuries: how to craft international agreements with teeth. The WTO's dispute-settlement process, which serves as a model for the TPP, puts pressure on countries to actually keep the promises they make in trade deals. That's why everyone with an agenda — wealthy investors, drug companies, labor unions, environmental groups, and so on — is scrambling to get on the bandwagon.

The forgotten coup - how America and Britain crushed the government of their 'ally', Australia

Australia briefly became an independent state during the Whitlam years, 1972-75. An American commentator wrote that no country had "reversed its posture in international affairs so totally without going through a domestic revolution". Whitlam ended his nation's colonial servility. He abolished Royal patronage, moved Australia towards the Non-Aligned Movement, supported "zones of peace" and opposed nuclear weapons testing.

Although not regarded as on the left of the Labor Party, Whitlam was a maverick social democrat of principle, pride and propriety. He believed that a foreign power should not control his country's resources and dictate its economic and foreign policies. He proposed to "buy back the farm". In drafting the first Aboriginal lands rights legislation, his government raised the ghost of the greatest land grab in human history, Britain's colonisation of Australia, and the question of who owned the island-continent's vast natural wealth.

Why the rise of fascism is again the issue

The recent 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz was a reminder of the great crime of fascism, whose Nazi iconography is embedded in our consciousness. Fascism is preserved as history, as flickering footage of goose-stepping blackshirts, their criminality terrible and clear. Yet in the same liberal societies, whose war-making elites urge us never to forget, the accelerating danger of a modern kind of fascism is suppressed; for it is their fascism.

"To initiate a war of aggression...," said the Nuremberg Tribunal judges in 1946, "is not only an international crime, it is the supreme international crime, differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole."

Good War...Better Peace

Soon after the Allied victory in Europe, the purge of Nazi Party members from government, business, industry, science, education, and all other walks of German life commenced. While a surprising number of Nazis were allowed—even compelled—to man their posts temporarily to enable a smooth transition, all party members, high and low, were sooner or later excised from German daily life. In theory, “de-Nazification” was a simple transplanting of Nazi officials with those of democratic, socialist or communist underpinnings. In practice, the purge became little more than a cloak for an orgy of rape, torture and death.

I am speaking here of the fact that instead of the Canadian government borrowing money from its own bank, our bank – the Bank of Canada (BoC) – it has, since 1974 chosen instead to borrow from private international and domestic financial institutions providing them with enormous, absolutely risk free profits for almost four decades.

Campus Administrators Invoke ‘Civility’ to Silence Critical Speech

University administrators are successfully rallying around the value of “civility” in discourse as a means of silencing and getting rid of professors deemed politically troublesome.

Scott, professor emeritus at the Institute for Advanced Study’s School of Social Science in Princeton, N.J., and adjunct professor of history at the Graduate Center at City University of New York, reports that administrators at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign denied formerly tenured professor Steven Salaita a promised position at their institution because of critical comments he made about Israel’s 2014 military assault on Gaza.

“Well-organized supporters of Israel alerted the university to his tweets, accused him of anti-Semitism, and questioned his scholarship as well as his political judgment,” Scott writes.

Ukrainian website calls for mass deportations and internment of dissenters in Ukraine

This idea was put forward by website "Khvylya", close to the administration of Poroshenko .

"The National Security Council should adopt a decision about the deportation from Ukraine to the Russian Federation of persons who are potential candidates for the dead in the name of the glory of the "Russian world" [Ukrainian media is putting the blame for recent murders in Ukraine on Putin - KR]. Deportation for their own safety, as shooting them on the territory of the Russian Federation loses all meaning. Let them go and preach that they are victims of Bandera terror and repressions, for which they may even make some money. We do not care, because none of us are going to refute the thesis of the Kremlin about the fascist junta and the banderites"

So the fans of the Kremlin should be confined for five years, until the regime and mentality will change in Russia, or offer them to leave on their own.

The Crowning Glory of Keynesianism

Readers of this publication will know that for some time, I’ve forecasted the creation of a new monetary system by which governments and banks gain total control over all monetary transactions.

On the surface of it, this may seem an impossible goal, as it would be so all-encompassing and would eliminate economic freedom entirely. Surely, it would not be tolerated. However, I believe that it’s not only relatively easy to create, but it will be sold in such a way that the public will see it as an absolute panacea to their economic woes. Only those who are far-sighted will understand its level of destruction in advance of its implementation.

American Justice? FBI Lab Overstated 95% Of Forensic Hair Matches (Including 32 Death Sentences)

Of 28 examiners with the FBI Laboratory’s microscopic hair comparison unit, 26 overstated forensic matches in ways that favored prosecutors in more than 95 percent of the 268 trials reviewed so far, according to the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL) and the Innocence Project, which are assisting the government with the country’s largest post-conviction review of questioned forensic evidence.

The cases include those of 32 defendants sentenced to death. Of those, 14 have been executed or died in prison.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are vast numbers of cases the FBI is known to have rigged lab test results on. Frederick Whitehurst, once the head of the FBI lab, tried to blow the whistle on this practice of framing innocent people under the guise of science. The FBI was caught faking the evidence in the murder of Vincent Foster, EVIDENCE found on the wreckage of TWA 800, the murder weapon planted on James Earl Ray in the assassination of Martin Luther King, etc.

JADE HELM 15: ARMY SPECIAL OPERATIONS COMMAND PUSHES BACK AGAINST ALARMIST CLAIMS ABOUT UPCOMING EXERCISE

U.S. Army Special Operations Command is pushing back against alarmist claims that an upcoming U.S. military exercise is a preparation for imposing martial law or subduing right-leaning groups and individuals. Conspiracy theories about the exercise, known as JADE HELM 15, appeared online this week. Some commentators railing against the event referred to an online slide show allegedly created by USASOC, which outlined a special operations exercise slated to take place across multiple states, outside the confines of U.S. military bases. In the slide show, a map of the southwest region of the United States labels Texas and other territory as “hostile” or “insurgent pocket.” The document also refers to coordination with law enforcement agencies.

How Oklahoma City Bombing Propaganda Effects Real Americans Decades Later

Mohammed Abdullah is a black American, U.S. Marine veteran, and convert to Islam who found something very wrong with his country's government. Abdullah, an armed guard, had come to disbelieve the U.S. government's official story regarding 9/11. He also felt a serious moral obligation to expose the lies, which blame Muslims for the attack. So he stood outside the local police dept. handing out DVDS & fliers. Soon after, the Police Dept. itself & the City Attorney filed a restraining order against him, in an attempt to ban him from all contact with hundreds of city employees. In shocking court testimony, one of the 'victims,' a female officer, justified her fear of Abdullah and his words with her beliefs about OKC and anti-government extremists. She referred to "my knowledge of incidents at Oklahoma City" and how "no one was able to do anything about it because of First Amendment rights."

CONGRESS IS ATTEMPTING TO REAUTHORIZE KEY PATRIOT ACT PROVISIONS BY SNEAKING IT INTO “USA FREEDOM ACT”

Yet with Section 215’s lifespan now stretching to a matter of weeks, supporters of broad surveillance powers have yet to put forth a bill for their preservation – evidence, opponents believe, that the votes for reauthorization do not exist, particularly not in the House of Representatives.

More likely, according to a multiple Hill sources, is a different option under consideration: making the major NSA reform bill of the last Congress the point of departure for reauthorizing 215 in the current one.

The bill would not abridge NSA collection of Americans’ international communications, nor prevent the NSA or the FBI from warrantlessly searching through its troves of them for Americans’ identifying information. Nor would it restrict a constellation of surveillance efforts authorized by a Reagan-era executive order. Even a recently disclosed bulk domestic phone records collection dragnet by the Drug Enforcement Agency would be untouched.

OK City - Why Did Bill Clinton's National Security Council Fund ATF "Experiments" in Building Home Made ANFO Truck Bombs in 1994?

According to the federal government, an Ammonia Nitrate-Fuel Oil (ANFO) truck bomb allegedly destroyed the Alfred P. Murrah building in downtown Oklahoma City on the morning of Wednesday, April 19, 1995. Also, according to recently released government documents, an individual experienced in loading large amounts of ammonia nitrate fertilizer into a vehicle for use as a terrorist truck bomb was present at the OKC scene and actually witnessed the worst terrorist attack in U.S. history. Records indicate that this ANFO explosives expert and his associates had constructed and destroyed at least eight vehicles in "test bombing experiments" out at a secret range in the New Mexico desert in the twelve months prior to the OKC bombing. He and his fellow explosives experts even photographed and videotaped these truck bombs as they detonated.

LEA: All right. We just saw, if you were watching there- there was a white pick-up truck backing a trailer into the scene here. They're trying to move people out of the way so they can get it in. It appears to be the Oklahoma County Bomb Squad. It's their bomb disposal unit, essentially, is what it is. And it is what they would use to- if- if the report that we gave you just a few moments ago turns out to be correct, that they have found a second explosive device of some kind inside this building, they'll back that trailer down there and the bomb squad folks will go in and they will use that- that trailer- you see the bucket on the back there.

The pilot who took the photos wishes (for the obvious reasons) to remain anonymous, but these photos are purported to be of an area near Camp Gruber-Braggs, Oklahoma in early April of 1995. Needless to say, just days after this photo was taken, the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City was destroyed (along with internal cutter charges) by a Ryder truck full of explosives.

NEW! In a recently discovered news article written by the Washington Post on June 17th, 1997, the Oklahoma National Guard authenticates the following photos as being exactly what they appear to be, photos of a Ryder truck in a clandestine base at Camp Gruber-Braggs.

Canadian Wheat Board to be sold to Saudi-owned Global Grain Group

The federal government is privatizing the Canadian Wheat Board with a sale to a Saudi-owned company.

G3 Global Grain Group will get 50.1 per cent of the company in exchange for an investment of $250 million. The other 49.9 per cent will be kept in trust for farmers who deliver grain to the board.

Any farmer who does deliver will get $5 per tonne in equity in the organization. In seven years, G3 Global Grain Group has the option to buy back the shares from farmers at market value.

SOLD! Canadian Wheat Board no longer quite so Canadian

"Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz announced that G3, a joint venture owned by two foreign corporations, Bunge and the Saudi investment company SALIC, is the beneficiary of CWB privatization. With this, the Conservative government has accomplished the biggest transfer of wealth away from farmers in the history of Canada," said Jan Slomp, National Farmers Union (NFU) President.

"The CWB's physical assets, its commercial relationships, and its good name have all been given away. The 'buyers' of the CWB actually get to keep the $250 million pittance they are 'paying' for it. Bunge's 2014 sales totalled $58 billion and multi-billion dollar SALIC is a subsidiary of the Saudi sovereign wealth fund, PIF."

Can the courts liberate the Bank of Canada?

You know the old aphorism, "If a tree falls in the forest…?" Well, how about this one: if citizens win a significant victory in court against an autocratic government involving the fleecing of Canadians of billions of their hard-earned tax dollars and no one in the media actually covers it, did it really happen?

That might well be the question being asked over at the Committee for Monetary and Economic Reform (COMER), a very small and low-budget Toronto think-tank. With their lawyer Rocco Galati (of Supreme Court fame in the Nadon case) they have been steadily winning court battles initiated in 2011 that would oblige the Bank of Canada to return to its pre-1974 practice of lending the government money virtually interest-free. But the mainstream media has boycotted the story. Galati believes the Harper government has done some serious arm-twisting to keep the story buried.

Republicans haven’t just rejected President Obama. They have adopted Benjamin Netanyahu as their leader.

Last month, at the unilateral invitation of Republicans, and against the will of a Democratic president, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed a joint session of Congress. He argued for a foreign policy that matched the views of congressional Republicans, not the views of the U.S. administration. Many people, including me, were taken aback by this overt alliance between the U.S. opposition party and the prime minister of another country. But a Bloomberg Politics poll released this week shows that the alliance is deeply rooted. Republicans haven’t just rejected Obama. They have adopted Netanyahu as their leader.

    AGENCY OVERSEEING OBAMA TRADE DEALS FILLED WITH FORMER TRADE LOBBYISTS

    The Office of the United States Trade Representative, the agency responsible for negotiating two massive upcoming trade deals, is being led by former lobbyists for corporations that stand to benefit from the deals, according to disclosure forms obtained by The Intercept. The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a proposed free trade accord between the U.S. and 11 Pacific Rim countries; the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) is a similar agreement between the U.S. and the E.U.

    Oath Keepers Rally in Oregon to Prevent 139-Year-Old Gold Mines from Being Seized by BLM

    Earlier this month, officials with the Bureau of Land Management sent a letter ordering local miners working at the Sugar Pine Mining Claim in the Galice Mining District near Merlin, OR to vacate the property that locals have mined for the past 139 years. Raw Story notes the fact that the owners of the claim subsequently contacted the Oath Keepers of Josephine County, an organization of ex-and-current military and law enforcement professionals who have sworn an oath to refuse orders that violate the US Constitution, who then called for militia members from around the country to gather at the mining claim in order to ensure that the Bureau of Land Management respects the miners’ Fifth Amendment right to due process.

    Student Sues College After Campus Cops Demand He Get A Free Speech 'Permit' Before Handing Out Fliers

    Cal Poly Pomona vows to respect your free speech rights, provided you inform the administration 10 days in advance, are granted permission to speak and are willing to wear a speech permit while remaining in the properly-designated area. That's just not how free speech works. Tomas is hoping his lawsuit will result in the school's policies being found unconstitutional. Even if Tomas can't get the constitutionality declaration and permanent injunction he's requesting (along with damages and costs), maybe his efforts will push the school to reconsider its policies.

    Mother of Boston Bomber Breaks Silence: 'It was all fabricated by the CIA'

    From their homes in Chechnya and Dagestan, two predominantly Muslim regions of Russia, some of his family members have tried to convince Tsarnaev to fire his court-appointed lawyer, Judy Clarke, who has taken a surprising approach to his defense.

    In one of her first arguments before the jury after entering a not-guilty plea, Clarke said that her client is indeed responsible for the “senseless, horrific, misguided acts.” But in committing these crimes, she argued that he was acting under the direction of his older brother Tamerlan, who was killed in a shootout with authorities soon after the bombing.

    This line of defense has outraged many of Tsarnaev’s relatives, who have tried to convince him to dismiss Clarke and ask for a lawyer who will argue his innocence. “Why do we even need defense attorneys if they just tell the jury he is guilty?” his aunt asks. “What’s the point?”

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    Judy Clarke is the government's go-to gal to make sure the patsies get buried and the official story remains unchallenged. But even I, not an attorney, could have gotten Tsarnaev acquitted.

    CHICAGO WILL PAY $5.5 MILLION IN "REPARATIONS" TO VICTIMS OF POLICE TORTURE

    Whenever Chicago Police commander Jon Burge needed a confession, he would walk into the interrogation room and set down a little black box, his alleged victims would later tell prosecutors. The box had two wires and a crank. Burge, they alleged, would attach one wire to the suspect’s handcuffed ankles and the other to his manacled hands. Then, they said, Burge would place a plastic bag over the suspect’s head. Finally, he would crank his little black box and listen to the screams of pain as electricity coursed through the suspect’s body.

    Mandatory Vaccines: SB277 CONTROVERSIAL COMMITTEE CHAIR STEALS VICTORY FROM CA PARENTS

    Following hours of hearing several hundred parents voice their opposition to the controversial SB277, the bill that would remove the personal and religious exemptions and would require mandatory vaccines for children attending public or private schools, was going to fail the Senate Committee Hearing. The State Capitol was flooded with a line of parents that filled the halls and extended out the building doors and into the grounds surrounding the building. One by one people filed in and gave their name, city of residence, and stated their opposition to the proposed bill. The Senate Education Committee held it’s hearing concerning the portion of the bill that would exclude children whose parents have chosen not to vaccinate them from schooling.

    Minnesota Senate Reaffirms Ban on Eye Contact

    The Minnesota Senate, perhaps trying to make its chambers more like a first grade classroom, this week reaffirmed a rule that forbids lawmakers from looking at one another, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

    Instead, speakers engaged in a floor debate must gaze at the Senate president, currently Sandy Tappas, who’s certain to be the most popular girl in class.

    That’s right. Lawmakers, presumably elected to office by constituents, voted to reaffirm a rule that demands “Eyes up front.”

    US Government Planting Malicious Software On Your Phone, So It Can Bypass Encryption and “See What You’re Doing”

    John McAfee invented commercial antivirus software. He may be a controversial and eccentric figure … but the man knows his technology.

    Earlier this month, McAfee told security expert Paul Asadoorian that encryption is dead. Specifically, he said:

    Every city in the country has 1 to 3 Stingray spy devices … Bigger cities like New York probably have 200 or 300

    When you buy a Stingray, Harris Corporation makes you sign a contract keeping your Stingray secret (background here and here)

    Stingray pushes automatic “updates” – really malicious software – onto your phone as soon as you come into range

    The software – written by the largest software company in the world – allows people to turn on your phone, microphone and camera, and read everything you do and see everything on your screen

    The Only Two Tools in the US Tool Bag: Bombs and Starvation

    The US has become the bully on the block and seemingly has only two weapons to use in forcing people to accept our will: one is bombs and the other is harsh economic sanctions. Economic sanctions can easily prove worse than bombs, because they do not discriminate and target the innocent. For over 50 years we imposed harsh economic sanctions on the people of Cuba, and for 50 years the "people" of Cuba were deprived of necessities and suffered. We recently relented, but repeatedly during the 50-year sanction period, the rest of the world begged us, and overwhelmingly voted in the UN every year, to have the US remove its sanctions. We ignored the world's pleas, and for 50 years defied the entire world in punishing the people of Cuba.

    21-year-old Josephine Witt, who was also wearing a t-shirt with the punning slogan "End ECB dick-tatorship" also left several fliers with a oblique small-print rant against the financial body which regulates the Eurozone monetary policy.

    FAA investigating Florida mailman's landing of gyrocopter on U.S. Capitol lawn

    From the mailman himself. Watch the vid.

    UPDATE 2:45 p.m.: ST. PETERSBURG — Doug Hughes' close friend and co-worker, Mike Shanahan, said today that the Ruskin mailman is not a terrorist and did not mean any harm with his protest.

    And just hours before Hughes landed in Washington, Hughes' friend said he called a Secret Service agent to notify him of the possibility of the gyrocopter flight.

    "He's not a suicide bomber, he's a patriot," said Shanahan, 65, of Apollo Beach. The whole stunt centers around Hughes' effort to change campaign finance laws, "or the lack thereof," according to Shanahan.

    Spokane public schools in Washington state began to audit the vaccine records of their students this week to identify students who are not in compliance with the required vaccine schedule.

    Once identified, the students will be detained along with their parents to be re-educated about vaccines, as well as to receive free jabs to get in compliance with vaccine schedules.

    Possible victims come forward in Denver airport groping scandal

    Two fired Transportation Safety Administration agents allegedly involved in a scheme to grope passengers at Denver International Airport could face criminal charges after several victims contacted prosecutors and police Wednesday.

    At least two men came forward, claiming they had been inappropriately fondled by TSA agents while passing through airport security in recent months, according to Lynn Kimbrough, communications director for the Denver district attorney's office.

    Even the 3rd Amendment is Dead: Police “Forcibly Occupied Home to Gain Tactical Advantage Against Suspect”

    Mac Slavo
    SHTFplan.com

    There is growing concern about the “quartering” of police in private homes during investigations – but courts don’t see police as the same as military. So there may be no protection…

    A federal judge just ruled that the Third Amendment to the Bill of Rights – which guards against quartering of troops – would not apply to police forcibly occupying a home, as police are not considered troops.

    Law professor Ilya Somin wrote in the Washington Post:
