Former FBI assistant director: to keep budgets high, we must ‘Keep Fear Alive’

In the context of an interview about a case in which a paid FBI informant is alleged to have offered destitute men a quarter of a million dollars to execute an attack, a former assistant director of the FBI admits it’s in the bureau’s best interest to inflate the supposed terror threat. That’s remarkably candid, and profoundly disturbing.

Yes, Amnesty Encourages More Illegal Immigration

To the disappointment of immigration-enforcement advocates, Judge Andrew S. Hanen last week rejected a key argument that Texas raised in its attempt to establish legal standing. Texas tried to show that Obama’s amnesty policies would lead to an increase of illegal aliens in the state and would strain state coffers as a consequence.

Fiorina Is Quietly Making an Impression in New Hampshire

But one less familiar potential 2016 presidential candidate is quietly garnering interest attention from the tightknit community of GOP power brokers.

Recent conversations with plugged-in Republicans across the state reveal a consensus that Carly Fiorina—the former Hewlett-Packard CEO—is positioning herself well as a potential dark horse White House contender capable of making a serious run.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wouldn't hit that HP link too hard, because while Carly was in charge, HP's products plummeted in quality and the company suffered a great deal of harm to its reputation.

FCC Votes in Favor of Obama's Net Neutrality — Has the Slippery Slope to Web Censorship Begun?

Here it comes...

Having pressured FCC’s Tom Wheeler, the vote just came down: U.S. FCC APPROVES NET NEUTRALITY INTERNET RULES IN 3-2 VOTE. While potentially good for a consumer’s pocketbook, the handing over of “fair-use” decision to the government, as we previously noted, could be the first step on a slippery slope to increased censorship.

“None of the Above”: Senator Wants Message of No Confidence on the Ballot

Mac Slavo
SHTFplan.com

Trapped inside the two-party beast, where saying “no” to one candidate has often meant voting for the “lesser of two evils” can be downright disillusioning, particularly for those who feel the system is broken beyond all repair.

Sending a firm message of “no confidence” might do more good for the country than continuing to hand power to slick, PR-driven politicians who have continued to betray voter promises and sell out the country to corporate and special interests.

Well, now one state senator has introduced a bill to do just that:

A recent proposal by State Senator Branden Petersen (R-MN) would place “None of the Above” as an option in elections. Under Petersen’s plan (which would be binding in all but presidential contests), if such option were to receive the most votes in a November election, a special election would be held with new candidates in February. Any candidates who had been listed on the prior ballot would be excluded.

Gosh, if that were to happen throughout the world, we might never to get to learn about how:

*Israel is strongly implicated in the 9/11 attacks (Dancing Israelis, Odigo, Zim Shipping). However, Israel is also the source for much of the intelligence information used in the so-called "war on terror" initiated by the 9/11 attacks.

*Israel has connections to the creation of Palestinian and Islamic fundamentalists groups, like Hamas and ISIS.
*Israel has committed false-flags against the US to engender support for its causes (Lavon Affair, USS Liberty).
*Israel lobby groups (AIPAC) dominate the US political apparatus.
*Israel commits most of the espionage against the US interests.
*Israel dominates the post-9/11 terror training of US police forces.
*Israel companies are spying on US citizens for the NSA.
*Israel contractors run many private prisons here in the US.

What Happens When An Unstoppable Force Meets An Immovable Object?

"Once there was a man of Ch`u selling shields and spears. In praising his shields he said, 'My shields are so solid that nothing can penetrate them.'

Again, in praising his spears, he said, 'My spears are so sharp that they can penetrate anything.'

In response to his words somebody asked, 'How about using your spears to pierce through your shields?'

To this the man could not give any reply. Indeed, impenetrable shields and absolutely penetrative spears cannot stand together at the same time."
- Han Feizi, Chinese Philosopher (280–233 BC)

The Real American Exceptionalism

"The sovereign is he who decides on the exception,” said conservative thinker Carl Schmitt in 1922, meaning that a nation’s leader can defy the law to serve the greater good. Though Schmitt’s service as Nazi Germany’s chief jurist and his unwavering support for Hitler from the night of the long knives to Kristallnacht and beyond damaged his reputation for decades, today his ideas have achieved unimagined influence.

Netanyahu is set to use his next week’s address to a joint session of Congress to condemn a potential nuclear agreement with Iran.

“The prime minister, as you will recall, was profoundly forward-leaning and outspoken about the importance of invading Iraq under George W. Bush, and we all know what happened with that decision,” Kerry said.

Here, within the US, basically five corporations are attempting to force Unquestionable Mandatory Vaccines on an unsuspecting population - Merck, Sanofi-Pasteur, Glaxo Smith Kline, Novartis, and Pfizer. None of these are US-based corporations. They are all foreign-owned - kept beyond US watchdog scrutiny. You never see their leadership, ever. Certainly not during the light of day.

US-Israel row deepens as Kerry questions Netanyahu

The row between the White House and Israeli prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu has intensified with US officials saying his outspoken condemnation of efforts to secure an Iranian nuclear deal had injected destructive partisanship into US-Israeli relations.

Benjamin Netanyahu’s blinkered view of American politics

When I first wrote about Benjamin Netanyahu’s address to a joint session of Congress opposing a nuclear deal with Iran, I was mostly focusing on the domestic politics of President Obama’s trolling and the GOP’s counter-trolling.

In the five weeks since, the effect of the speech on the Israeli-American relationship has come into stark relief, and the effect could best be described as “toxic.”

Which 2016 GOP candidate is most gung-ho for war?

A battle to watch: Which 2016 GOP candidate is most gung-ho for war?
Republican voters are hearing the war drums, and are beginning to nod their heads in time to the rhythm. That’s the conclusion one can come to reading this new poll http://www.people-press.org/2015/02/24/growing-support-for-campaign-ag... from the Pew Research Center, which notes, among other things, an increasing eagerness among Republican voters to use ground troops in Iraq and Syria.

We are now likely to enter a cycle in which more hawkish voters lead the GOP candidates to become more hawkish in order to appeal to them, which will in turn encourage the voters to become even more hawkish because they’ll be taking their cues from the things they hear from their party leaders, and around the cycle will go.

COMER UPDATE - Federal Court of Appeal Decision — January 26, 2015

Since the Federal Court of Appeal fully upheld the decision of Justice Russell dated April 24, 2014, Justice Russell’s decision stands. I refer everyone to my summary of that decision on COMER’s website.

What that means is that we are entitled to proceed with our action, subject to me drafting and filing an amended Statement of Claim with the Federal Court, which will be done shortly.

In short, and in summary, the decision of the Federal Court of Appeal is a victory for COMER to proceed. (While the government can seek leave of the Federal Court of Appeal’s decision to the Supreme Court of Canada, to date no such indication has been conveyed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For those just finding out about COMER (which Canada has been trying to block and ban from both corporate and independent media) , the Bank of Canada is supposed to provide interest-free loans to the Canadian governments for infrastructure development. But starting in the 1970s, the Canadian government started getting their loans from privately owned banks, and forcing Canadian taxpayers to pay the interest! The COMER lawsuit seeks to force the Canadian government to avail itself of the interest-free loans mandated by the charter for the Bank of Canada, and so far the courts have agreed that COMER is correct.

The Canadian government has banned this subject from the Canadian corporate media, and emails from Canada report that links to stories about COMER are blocked inside Canada as well. This is to keep the Canadian people from finding out about this scandal as they would likely ask why the Canadian government would do such a thing, and so far the only answer seems to be, "We decided to loot the taxpayers and give it to the private banks because the private bankers write really generous campaign donation checks every election!"

Needless to say, this would not sit very well with the already over-taxed Canadian people!

The real reason Diana tapes were shelved: Director claims BBC axed 'dynamite' footage amid fears of upsetting monarchy - despite spending £500,000 on programme

The BBC allegedly wasted £500,000 on a documentary featuring 'dynamite' interviews with Princess Diana - but later shelved it because it did not want to upset the monarchy, it has been claimed.

According to the director behind a controversial documentary about the Princess of Wales, the BBC went on to give a misleading account of why the programme was not broadcast.

The Corporation said at the time that Diana: Her Story, Her Words, due to be broadcast on the tenth anniversary of her death, did not sufficiently add to the story of Diana's life.

But, in another controversial documentary being aired tonight, it is claimed the BBC stopped its broadcast amid fears it would upset the Royal Family close to Prince's Charles 60th birthday.

Why Does Maryland Have the Most Millionaires Per Capita? The Answer Might Make You Angry

The fat cats in Washington D.C. are living the high life, and they are doing it at your expense. Over the past decade, there has been one area of the country which has experienced a massive economic boom. Thanks to wildly out of control government spending, the Washington D.C. region is absolutely swimming in cash. In fact, at this point the state of Maryland has the most millionaires per capita in the entire nation and it isn’t even close. If you have never lived there, it is hard to describe what the D.C. area is like. Every weekday morning, hordes of lawyers, lobbyists and government bureaucrats descend upon D.C. from the surrounding suburbs. And at the end of the day, the process goes in reverse. Everyone is just trying to get their piece of the pie, and it is a pie that just keeps on growing as government salaries, government contracts and government giveaways just get larger and larger. Of course our founders never intended for this to happen.

People are tired of US interventionism; they’re tired of US exceptionalism; they’re tired of the US bombing their country – if you’re a Somalian, you don’t care about listening to a radio broadcast from the US, you just wish the US would stop bombing you,” McAdams believes.

Our freedoms—especially the Fourth Amendment—are being choked out by a prevailing view among government bureaucrats that they have the right to search, seize, strip, scan, spy on, probe, pat down, taser, and arrest any individual at any time and for the slightest provocation.

Forced cavity searches, forced colonoscopies, forced blood draws, forced breath-alcohol tests, forced DNA extractions, forced eye scans, forced inclusion in biometric databases—these are just a few ways in which Americans are being forced to accept that we have no control over what happens to our bodies during an encounter with government officials.

Janet Yellen Is Freaking Out About ‘Audit The Fed’ – Here Are 100 Reasons Why She Should Be

Janet Yellen is very alarmed that some members of Congress want to conduct a comprehensive audit of the Federal Reserve for the first time since it was created. If the Fed is doing everything correctly, why should Yellen be alarmed? What does she have to hide? During testimony before Congress on Tuesday, she made “central bank independence” sound like it was the holy grail. Even though every other government function is debated politically in this country, Yellen insists that what the Federal Reserve does is “too important” to be influenced by the American people. Does any other government agency ever dare to make that claim? But of course, the Federal Reserve is not a government agency. It is a private banking cartel that has far more power over our money and our economy than anyone else does. And later on in this article I am going to share with you dozens of reasons why Congress should shut it down.

Kerry rebukes Netanyahu over Iran ‘deal’

US Secretary of State John Kerry has criticized officials who are speaking against a potential nuclear agreement with Iran, saying they don’t “know what the deal is” amid the ongoing talks over Tehran’s nuclear energy program.

In an apparent reference to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Kerry said on Tuesday, “Anybody running around right now, jumping in to say well we don’t like the deal, or this or that, doesn’t know what the deal is.”

Netanyahu and some other officials in his regime have accused the Obama administration of trying to strike a “bad deal” with Iran.

“There is no deal yet,” Kerry told the US Senate Appropriations Committee. “And I caution people to wait and see what these negotiations produce.”

Biochemistry Science versus the Pharmaceutical-Medical Paradigm

by Catherine J. Frompovich

There’s an excellent example that illustrates the crazy interpretation of biochemistry versus pharmaceutical vaccine pseudoscience, which has been going on for years masquerading as ‘evidence-based medicine’ parroted by the medical profession, the CDC/FDA, federal and state health agencies...

If vaccines work so well, then why does the science have to be FAKED?

There are no "whistleblowers" in the organic food world that all of the sudden "confess" that the power of organic food is some horrible lie and that all the tests for health and safety were faked by leading researchers and scientists. That hasn't happened, isn't happening and won't happen. Why? Because nutrition works, and chemical medicines don't, relatively speaking. In the vaccine world, there are more than a handful of leading researchers who have blown the whistle, on videotape and in the court rooms of America, that vaccine safety is not tested and results must be faked in order to get government contracts for hundreds of millions of dollars.

UN climate head resigns amid sexual allegations

The head of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), Rajendra Pachauri, resigns amid sexual harassment allegations by a 29-year-old female researcher at an institute he runs in India.

The 74-year-old Indian and a Nobel Peace Prize winner, who had been the chairman of the IPCC since 2002, submitted his letter of resignation on Tuesday to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.

“The IPCC needs strong leadership and dedication of time and full attention by the Chair in the immediate future, which under the current circumstances I may be unable to provide,” he wrote in his letter, without referring to the allegations.

The woman, who works at Pachauri’s Delhi-based Energy and Resources Institute, has lodged a complaint with the Delhi Police, claiming that Pachauri had repeatedly treated her inappropriately, both physically and through emails, texts and WhatsApp messages.

Pachauri has rejected the accusations, saying his email account and mobile phone were hacked.

14 Signs That Most Americans Are Flat Broke and Totally Unprepared for the Coming Economic Crisis

When the coming economic crisis strikes, more than half the country is going to be financially wiped out within weeks. At this point, more than 60 percent of all Americans are living paycheck to paycheck, and a whopping 24 percent of the country has more credit card debt than emergency savings. One of the primary principles that any of these “financial experts” that you see on television will teach you is to have a cushion to fall back on. At the very least, you never know when unexpected expenses like major car repairs or medical bills will come along. And in the event of a major economic collapse, if you do not have any financial cushion at all you will be a sitting duck. Yes, I know that there are millions upon millions of families out there that are just trying to scrape by from month to month at this point. I hear from people that are deeply struggling in this economy all the time. So I don’t blame them for not being able to save lots of money.

Did you know that not only was the flagship World War II Grand Rapids fluoride study “tinkered with” to throw out data showing children who did not drink fluoridated water had healthier teeth, but artificial fluoride’s “healthiness” was actually pushed via a massive government propaganda campaign run by none other than Edward Bernays?

Netanyahu declines U.S. Democrats' invitation for meeting during visit

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declined on Tuesday an invitation to meet with U.S. Senate Democrats during his trip to Washington next week.

"Though I greatly appreciate your kind invitation to meet with Democratic Senators, I believe that doing so at this time could compound the misperception of partisanship regarding my upcoming visit," Netanyahu wrote in a letter to Senators Richard Durbin and Dianne Feinstein obtained by Reuters.

Durbin and Feinstein had invited Netanyahu to a closed-door meeting with Democratic senators in a letter on Monday, amid tensions over his plans to address the U.S. Congress on Iran's nuclear program.
