US submarine located, ‘pushed out’ of border waters - Russian Navy’s General Staff

Anti-submarine forces of the Russian Northern Fleet located and ‘pushed out’ from the Russian border waters a foreign submarine, a high-ranking representative of the Navy’s General Staff said on Saturday.

“On August 7, 2014, the Northern Fleet located in the Barents Sea a foreign submarine, supposedly of the Virginia class of the U.S. Navy,” the source said.

Combat Stress Among Veterans Is Found to Persist Since Vietnam

Most veterans who had persistent post-traumatic stress a decade or more after serving in the Vietnam War have shown surprisingly little improvement since then, and a large percentage have died, a new study finds, updating landmark research that began a generation ago. Members of minorities who enlisted before finishing high school were especially likely to develop such war-related trauma, as were those veterans who had killed multiple times in combat, the study found.

Interest in MH17 Fades as Sanctions & War Edge Closer

Once again the West has advanced its agenda forward by disingenuously leveraging tragedy to sell otherwise unjustifiable and undesirable measures against a member of the international community. Stronger European sanctions against Russia had just failed in the days prior to the downing of MH17, but in the wake of the disaster, passed with ease. Likewise, providing Kiev with weapons and training was becoming increasingly unthinkable as their human rights record and their affiliations and proclivities toward Nazism became increasingly difficult to cover up or spin.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Just because a shooting war against Russia would be the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing the US government could possibly do right now, unfortunately, is no guarantee that this government will not do it.

And why?!?

This government is broke, both morally and fiscally. These pre-emptive wars, fought ultimately for private corporate, have bankrupted this country beyond belief.

There is also the issue of the emergence of the ruble as one of the world's more stable currencies, and many times now, countries will exchange their currency for that of the Russian ruble directly, bypassing the dollar completely.

Some in the bowels of power DC believe that a war against Russia will cause people to blame their misery on that war, and misdirect their anger, which would be better-placed against those in this country who have mismanaged our domestic and foreign policies, and the Fed's monetary policies, which cannot hold for very much longer.

I would like to politely point out that this country's military doesn't have the money, the manufacturing, or the troop strength to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia; and that is what makes the military option so scarily dangerous here.

Also, the Ukrainian military appears to be in complete disarray, with massive demonstrations against Poroschenko's conscription efforts, and with Ukrainian troops surrendering to their Russian counterparts on a daily basis.

There has been some noise in Congress about the US military sending "advisors" to Ukraine after the first of the year; this situation will not hold until the first of the year, and I seriously doubt it will hold until the end of next month, when Congress gets back into session.

I would not be surprised if the Obama Administration creates some kind of "false flag" on the Ukrainian/Russian border to kick things off, then invokes the War Powers Act.

Iron Dome blocked just 8 out of 120 rockets: Israeli military

The Israeli army has admitted that Israel’s Iron Dome missile system intercepted only eight out of nearly 120 rockets that were fired from the Gaza Strip into the occupied Palestinian territories on Sunday.

The military confirmed that around 110 rockets struck the occupied territories.

The development comes as the US Senate on Friday approved an additional USD 225 million in funding for the missile system despite Israel’s deadly war on the Gaza Strip.

US Cluster Bombing Legacy Continuing To Cost Lives In Laos

The Vietnam War era’s dark legacy of pervasive cluster bombing is still costing lives in Laos, nearly 40 years after the end of all hostilities in Southeast Asia. In this documentary feature, Journeyman Pictures meets the brave women who are trying to clear the bomb fields.

Laos has the notorious reputation for being the most heavily bombed country in the world. During the Vietnam War, the US dropped 2 million tonnes of explosives on Laotian territory. Even today, there is estimated to be up to 80 million unexploded munitions scattered across the countryside. Removing them is job that will likely take more than a lifetime to complete.

THE MORALITY OF AMERICANS

The United States tortures prisoners. Obama just admitted it on TV. The excuse was the necessity to find Iraq's weapons of mass destruction. But now we know there were no weapons of mass destrution, and that the US Government has been torturing innocent people to death.

Are you Ready for Nuclear War?

The crisis provoked by American and European charges of Russian responsibility for the shooting down of flight MH17 has brought the world the closest it has been to global war since the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962. But the situation today may be even more dangerous. A half century ago, the Kennedy administration—haunted by fears that miscalculations on either side could precipitate a nuclear exchange—sought to keep the lines of communications open and avoid the demonization of Soviet leaders.

NATO exerting pressure, not interested in MH17 investigation – Russia’s mission

Without waiting for MH17 crash investigators’ conclusions, NATO chief is eager to blame anti-Kiev forces, thus “exerting pressure” on the international team while providing no evidence to back the claims, Russia’s mission to NATO said.

The Russian mission to NATO has said that the bloc's Secretary General, Anders Fogh Rasmussen “decided not to wait until the end of #MH17 investigation” to blame the anti-Kiev forces for shooting down the plane, referring to Rasmussen's comments in Sunday's interview with the French Midi Libre.

The Pentagon's troubled, expensive new fighter jet

It's a state-of-the-art fighter jet that's supposed to seal America's dominance over the world's skies. Conceived in 1996, the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II was to be put into operation starting in 2010 to gradually replace the Pentagon's aging fleet of fighters, such as the F-16 and the F/A-18, many of which were built in the 1970s and '80s. But in the 18 years since its conception, the F-35 has proven to be so technologically ambitious that Lockheed can't get it finished; there have been endless delays, budget overruns, and technical failures. The plane was recently grounded again, because of an engine fire — the 13th grounding since 2007. Since the F-35 has been repeatedly redesigned, the cost of developing the plane has doubled to a record-breaking $400 billion — the most expensive weapons system ever. A single plane will cost $185 million to produce.

Putin Explains That Russian Sovereignty Under Attack By The Global Elite

Any nation that is part of an alliance gives up part of its sovereignty. This does not always meet the national interests of a given country, but this is their sovereign decision. We expect our national legal interests to be respected, while any controversies that always exist, to be resolved only through diplomatic efforts, by means of negotiations. Nobody should interfere in our internal affairs.

However, ever more frequently today we hear of ultimatums and sanctions. The very notion of state sovereignty is being washed out. Undesirable regimes, countries that conduct an independent policy or that simply stand in the way of somebody’s interests get destabilised. Tools used for this purpose are the so-called colour revolutions, or, in simple terms – takeovers instigated and financed from the outside.

US TAX DOLLARS CONTINUE TO PAY FOR CARNAGE IN GAZA

he Pentagon confirmed the Israeli military had requested additional ammunition to restock its dwindling supplies on July 20, with the US Defense Department approving the sale just three days later.

SALE ????

Did anyone see a receipt??

This might explain why you didn’t … the weapons were already in Israel.

Two of the requested munitions came from a little-known stockpile of ammunition stored by the US military on the ground in Israel for emergency use. The War Reserve Stockpile Ammunition-Israel is estimated to be worth $1 billion.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"The word "sale" is a joke. Where do you think Israel gets the money to buy US weapons? From the US TAXPAYERS!

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

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

Why the USA and England Had to Start World War Two

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

FLASHBACK - THE LIE OF THE (LAST) CENTURY

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

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

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

Fool me once...

The Cultivation of Hate

If there were any doubts that Western “leaders” live in a fantasy make-believe world constructed out of their own lies, the G-7 meeting and 70th anniversary celebration of the Normandy landing dispelled the doubts.

The howlers issuing from these occasions are enough to split your sides. Obama and his lap dog Cameron described the Normandy landing on June 6, 1944, as “the greatest liberation force that the world has ever known” and took all the credit for the US and Britain for the defeat of Hitler. No mention was made of the Soviet Union and the Red Army, which for three years prior to the Normandy landing had been fighting and defeating the Wehrmacht.

The Germans lost World War II at the Battle of Stalingrad, which was fought from August 23, 1942 until February 2, 1943, when most of the remnants of the powerful German Sixth Army surrendered, including 22 generals.

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

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

On the crisis in Israel with Hamas and the Palestinians, Celente says, “If this continues to increase at the rate it is going, it will be hell for everyone. There is also the fear that this could spread into the Lebanese border. As a trend forecaster, if peace is not brought to that region and this continues to spread, and if it goes into Lebanon, it will be hell on earth for everyone in that region. . . .

Obama Seeks to Dramatically Broaden US War on Terror

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

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

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

Today’s vote, 370-40, together with the Hanabusa amendment, indicates a clear objection to the nearly 1,000 troops and combat assets that have been deployed in the region.

ALL WARS ARE BANKERS' WARS! ORIGINAL TEXT ARTICLE

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

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

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

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

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

However, they made no direct link to Russia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Israel’s Iron Dome Isn’t Working: A Weapons Expert’s Warning

Hamas warheads aren’t easy to blow up in midair. The explosive used—TNT—is fairly inert and encased in a thick steel tube. The Tamir interceptors are supposed to blow up when they get close to the rockets and shred them with small steel rods. But the rods spray in all directions, so most don’t even touch the rocket. Many of those that hit may deflect off. The rods don’t have much chance if the timing or direction of the interceptor is even slightly off, according to Lloyd’s calculations.

If Iron Dome isn’t effective, then why have so few Israelis died from rocket fire? Both Lloyd and Postol attribute that mainly to the low firepower of the rockets and to Israel’s excellent early-warning system and network of shelters.

Urge the U.S. Government to stop arming Israel

This summer, civilians have borne the brunt of the violence in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories. Much of this has been carried out with foreign supplied arms.

It is time for a UN-mandated international investigation into violations committed on all sides amidst Israel’s invasion of Gaza and indiscriminate rocket fire from Palestinian armed groups into Israel.

When the Government talks of Sanctions

Sanctions only serve the Government, not the People.

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

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

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

They told lies about Syria and they turned out not to be true. Now they're telling lies about the Ukraine and Russia, and they will turn out not to be true. The only problem is, will they start World War 3 in the meantime, as hawks in Congress and sycophants in the news media are chafing at the bit to see the bombs start dropping.

Is this your government? Because it's sure not mine. It should be the objective of every decent American to overthrow this present government, because the crimes they continue to commit are sure to destroy the United States.

U.S. Showing It’s Prepared To Go To War With Russia And China

“The Obama administration announces that it’s going to spend billions of dollars, that it doesn’t have by the way for unemployment insurance and job creation or anything else, but they are going to spend billions of dollars — tens of billions of dollars — to upgrade the stealth bombers that are used really, or only intended to be used, against the very advanced countries”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Okay, Obama, if you really feel that way...

Here's your rifle, and here's your parachute. We ran out of the camo so here is a bright day-glo orange jump suit left over from Abu Ghraib. Watch your head climbing into that transport plane, and we will call Putin and tell him you are on your way to kick his butt all by yourself. But We The People know you are lying to us about Malaysian Airlines flight 17, just as you lied about Assad gassing his own people right in front of the UN chemical weapons inspectors, just like your predecessor lied about Saddam having nuclear weapons, just like previous Presidents have lied about torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin, Pearl Harbor being a surprise, the Lusitania not carrying military cargo, a Spanish mine in Hava harbor, etc. etc. etc. always with the intention of tricking this nation into wars of conquest.

And We The People are sick of it.

Our children are worth more than some stack of bank notes cowering in fear at the Ruble and the Yuan. If maintaining the US dollar as the global currency is that important to the bankers then put those owners of the federal Reserve into uniform and send them out to be killed and crippled.

We The People know how the war-scam works, and we will not be fooled by you liars in the Oval Office any longer. Fight your own damned war.

Reminder: U.S. Plotted to Provoke Shoot Down of Airliner to Create Pretext for War

In 2005, a memo was leaked from a January 2003 meeting between President George W. Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair during which Bush, “considered provoking a war with Saddam Hussein’s regime by flying a United States spyplane over Iraq bearing UN colours, enticing the Iraqis to take a shot at it.”

However, this was by no means the first time that the United States considered such methods. Declassified documents from 1962?s infamous Operation Northwoods confirm that the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff planned to, “create an incident which will demonstrate convincingly that a Cuban aircraft has attacked and shot down a chartered civil airliner enroute from the United States to Jamaica, Guatemala, Panama, or Venezuela.”

The Joint Chiefs planned to pack the plane with “a group of college students off on a holiday” in order to fully demonize Cuba and potentially set the stage for a confrontation with the Soviet Union at the height of the Cold War.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

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


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

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

Is Malaysian Flight 17 the new "Lusitania"


On May 7th, 1915, a German U-Boat U-20 torpedoed and sank RMS Lusitania, a passenger ship operated by the Cunard line.  Like many ships built during that time, Lusitania was heavily subsidized by the British Government and designed to be easily converted into a military auxiliary cruiser in time of war.  Although the United States was officially neutral, Germany declared that Lusitania was being used to transport military cargoes to England, which made her a legitimate target of war. Germany even went so far as to take out ads in the American newspapers warning civilians not to take passage on the Lusitania.



The ad placed by Germany warning passengers not to take passage on the Lusitania

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With the revelation that Flight 17 was directed to a course some 200km north of normal to fly over Donetsk, it is starting to look like the aircraft was set up to be destroyed and the blame dropped onto Russia and the separatists, to start another World War.

Killing Russian Journalists in Ukraine is Organized Effort – Willy Wimmer

There is fear spreading through Europe of the specter of war, fuelled by aggressive war propaganda by the West in their attempt to demonize Russia. In Germany, for the first time, people do not trust their mass media. All over Europe appearing strange fascist parties. The blind drive by the US in pursuit of their geopolitical objectives in Europe and in Ukraine has placed the entire European continent in an unstable and extremely dangerous position.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a good reason for the US to focus their war-making efforts on Europe. During WW2, the United States was the only industrialized nation to escape bombing. For twenty years after WW2, the rest of the world had to come to the United States to purchase the machine tools to rebuild their own industry, and of course, during that time, consumers in other countries had to buy industrially-produced goods from the United States as well. Together with the Breton-Woods agreement forcing the use of the dollar for all global trade, the United States made out like a bandit economically. But over the last 30 years, manufacturing in the United States has declined. At the end of WW2 there were thirty American companies manufacturing TV sets. Today there are none. Asian electronics rule the world. Asian and European cars outclass those produced in America.

The goal for the US Government in WW3 is not only to force the world back to the US dollar but to trigger wars in industrial regions that compete with US industries, to smash them and force the world back into a period of dependence on American manufacturing.

Lowe's Employees Decided To Fix This Veteran's Wheelchair After The VA Wouldn't

For the past two years, I have been waiting to receive a new wheelchair from the Veterans Administration. In addition, I have been told that I am not entitled to a spare wheelchair.

On the evening of July 7, my wheelchair fell apart again, while shopping at Lowe’s Home Improvement Center in on Forest Avenue in Mariners Harbor.

Three employees, David, Marcus and Souleyman jumped to my assistance immediately. They placed me in another chair while they went to work. They took the wheelchair apart and replaced the broken parts and told me, “We’re going to make this chair like new.”

I left 45 minutes after closing hours in my wheelchair that was like new.

Israeli expert says Iron Dome defence is a hoax

An Israeli scientist and award-winning security expert has called the Iron Dome missile defence system "the biggest hoax the world has seen", Addustour news website has reported.

According to Dr Motty Scheffer, "Today, there is no missile which can intercept other missiles or rocket-propelled grenades, and the Iron Dome is a light audio system which blocks Israeli public opinion and, of course, itself. In fact, all the explosions that we have seen in the atmosphere are self-destruction. The Iron Dome did not launch any rocket that could intercept at least one missile fired from Gaza."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Iron Dome interceptors cost about $50,000 each, not including the cost of the launching and ground tracking system. They are scoring less than a 50% success rate against the Gaza rockets, which cost less than $1000 each. From a purely economic point of view, Iron Dome is not an effective weapon system. But Israel doesn't care because they are not paying for those $50,000 rockets, YOU are!

The Kingdom of Shylock

First published in 1917, when it was repressed. This is a reprint of the second edition. Frank Anstey (1865-1940) was a leader of the Labor Party, a committed socialist, supporter of public finance and the Commonwealth Bank, and viewed WWI as “a war of rival capitalists”. He was more right than wrong. In this age of the globalisation, of organized criminality, we need more like him who will stick to their guns against cannibalistic corporate capitalism. This is an essential reference in understanding the true Labor Party, economic power in Australia, how far we have come along the road to total financial control of our lives, and conversely how diminished is our understanding of the forces that torture us.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hesperian Press sent me a copy of this book. I read it last night. In fact I could not put it down. There, in 1917, was a clear understanding that the world was enslaved by those who held control of the monetary mediums of exchange, and how those private banking interests had driven the world into World War 1. Given the title, and the threat to the private central bankers, the book was denounced and suppressed. But is is worth the read in light of current events!

The lesson from this book is that politicians have indeed known all along that all wars are bankers' wars, but continue to be willing to sell your childrens' lives for a share in the bankers' treasure!

UN Human Rights Chief Doubts Legality Of Israeli Air Campaign

Israel's air campaign in Gaza may violate international laws prohibiting the targeting of civilians, the UN's top human rights official has said as the death toll of Palestinians rose to more than 100.

As international pressure continued to build on Israel to end its four-day conflict with Hamas and Palestinian militant groups in the enclave, Navi Pillay, the UN high commissioner for human rights, said the Israeli military must abide by international law.

"So far the battle is progressing as planned, but we can expect further stages in future. Up to now, we have hit Hamas and the terror organisations hard and as the battle continues we will increase strikes at them," he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Since when has Israel allow international law to in any way interfere with what they do to the Palestinians?

Were I a betting woman, I would almost be willing to bet real money on a ground invasion of Gaza; the only question is the timing, which will be when the Israeli government feels that international attention is distracted with other geopolitical issues so as to be paying the minimal amount of attention to that invasion.

FALSE-FLAG ALERT - Russian Hackers Threaten Power Companies, Researchers Say

A Russian group of hackers known as “Energetic Bear” is attacking energy companies in the U.S. and Europe and may be capable of disrupting power supplies, cybersecurity researchers said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

False-flag alert.

To find a lie, look for what should be there and is not. And what is missing here is a REASON for Russia to sabotage US civilian power stations, knowing such an act would result in a US military operation against Russia. Cui bono? Who benefits? Who gets what they want?

Certainly the US is desperate to escalate the campaign of wars they have been running for the last ten years. And the US is desperate to create a state of war with Russia (and China) to prevent the Ruble (and the Yuan) from further displacing the US dollar in international trade and banking. But Russia does not want war and has attacked nobody. Indeed, If Russia wanted war, they would simply launch an outright attack, military asset against military asset, to blunt the inevitable retaliatory strike.

This Russian Hacker story stinks of stolen Kuwaiti incubators and Saddam's nuclear weapons, and presages the US shutting off its own power stations to justify an unprovoked first strike at Russia!

Whistleblower alleges VA benefit application purge in Georgia

Eligibility Center program specialist Scott Davis told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that health benefit applications for more than 10,000 veterans may have been improperly purged from the Health Eligibility Center's national data system in DeKalb County.

The center doesn't process all applications, but helps manage the national enrollment computer system and offers enrollment guidance for VA hospitals across the country.

Davis, who joined the VA in April of 2011, began filing complaints in January and said managers were focused on meeting goals linked to the Affordable Care Act to meet their bonus targets. He also asked the VA's Office of the Inspector General to investigate the potential mishandling of a $5 million federal contract.

Similarities Between 1914 And 2014

As we approach the 100th anniversary of the start of World War I, the (non-mainstream) media is starting to talk about the parallels between then and now. Could it be true that there are similarities? In this article, I would like to discuss some of the intriguing, and frankly disturbing, parallels I see between the period just prior to WWI and today. I think that understanding these parallels is of utmost importance, not only because the events leading up to WWI are, in my view, also the indirect cause of the Second World War, but they are important to understand the similar problems we could be facing today.

Government Stops Glenn Greenwald from Publishing His Big Snowden Revelation … But Others Will Release ALL of the Snowden Documents to Prevent a War

A month ago, Glenn Greenwald announced that he was going to publish his biggest story yet: the names of those the NSA has been spying on.

Earlier today, Greenwald tweeted that he would finally publish the story tonight at midnight.

8 hours later, he tweeted:

After 3 months working on our story, USG [the United States government] today suddenly began making new last-minute claims which we intend to investigate before publishing

Many responded that it’s a trap, and that the government is dishonestly and illegally censoring Greewald.

At the same time, Cryptome announced that all of the Snowden documents will be released in July … supposedly in order to avert a war.

“July is when war begins unless headed off by Snowden full release of crippling intel. After war begins not a chance of release,” Cryptome tweeted on its official feed. “Warmongerers are on a rampage. So, yes, citizens holding Snowden docs will do the right thing,” it said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The wait on the release of these documents is making me very nervous.

Cornered animals - and governments - are both very dangerous.

And if in fact the US government has a good sense of precisely what is in these documents, what will prevent them from going to war sooner than the July 18th-21st window?!?!?

The short answer, unfortunately, is...not much.

USS Bataan with 1,000 marines to Join Six Other Warships in the Persian Gulf

CNN is reporting that the USS Bataan is being sent to the Persian Gulf with 1,000 marines on board. There is no word of a planned invasion. That will make seven warships there — the USS Arleigh Burke, the USS Truxton, the USS Gunston Hall, the USS George HW Bush, the USS O’Kane, the USS Philippine Sea, and the USS Mesa Verde – along with helicopters and warplanes that can be used for an invasion or for an evacuation of US citizens.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yeah, I can seem them using warplanes to evacuate Americans ... one at a time in that back seat ... except for the Harrier, the F-18, the F-22, the still-not-operation F-35, all of which have just one seat for the pilot. Are they planning to mount those American evacuees on the wing rails? :)

ALL WARS ARE BANKERS' WARS! UPDATED!

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am helping Zane collect material for an updated version of the video for "All Wars are Bankers' Wars" and decided to add them to the original article as illustrations.

At present, this article and video are being chased around the net by an obvious team of paid propagandists attacking everything in it, denouncing it all as "fake" and "conspiracy", that I am a "commie kook", and how Private Central Bankers are a beacon unto the world, the salvation of us all, yadda yadda yadda from which I deduce that the schemers behind Private Central Banking are getting very worried indeed that the people of planet Earth are onto their little centuries old scam!

Onward global army ... maybe sooner than later?

The beauty, in the eyes of some, is that when things get really bad for the general population and more and more uprisings occur, an international army will better be able to step in and do crowd control (you know, keeping the peace) than a local army would, local soldiers being possibly reluctant to shoot real bullets at their own people. That may also be one of the reasons for the partnership with the US Northern Command - so that US troops could step in to put down a Canadian uprising, and vice versa.

Last, but still worth considering: maybe recruitment centres won't be needed if a draft is imposed, which of course would only occur if the predicted WWIII is not just a conspiracy fantasy.

I'm also getting the feeling our economy is going to tank (further), which means there will be lots of unemployed youth with no place to go but the military.

An American Mutiny In The Persian Gulf

Americans have been saying No to wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and now Iran to No Avail. We also said No to Bailouts to No Avail. In 2006 Democrats took over congress on an anti-war platform but we saw nothing but endless standing ovations for the madman Bibi Netanyahu from both sides of the political aisle. In 2012 70% of US military donations went to the only candidate who opposed the wars and defended the Constitution. These men and women saw their votes stolen in the primaries further diminishing our right to say No to war. Bailouts did not just continue but graduated to stealing money from our accounts.

The American military is the only group of people in the world who can effectively say No to World War III.

In recent years, the United States has worked to phase out its fleet of older, heavier radar reconnaissance satellites with smaller but equally capable ones, said Charles Vick, a space policy analyst with the Globalsecurity.org think tank.

Worth Re-reading This Memorial Day: War is a Racket by Gen Smedley Butler

Major General Smedley Darlington Butler, USMC

1881 - 1940

Double recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor

"I spent 33 years and 4 months in active service as a member of our country's most agile military force--the Marine Corps. I served in all commissioned ranks from second lieutenant to Major General. And during that period I spent most of my time being a high-class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and for the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer for capitalism. I suspected I was part of a racket all the time. Now I am sure of it. Like all members of the military profession I never had an original thought until I left the service."

Smedley D. Butler (1881-1940)
