‘CIA killed prisoners, made it look like suicide’ – Guantanamo guard

A former Guantanamo Bay prison guard and Marine explained in details what makes him believe three problematic detainees were killed at CIA black site in Guantanomo and their death was covered up as a triple suicide.

Army Staff Sergeant Joseph Hickman was on duty at the notorious prison camp when the three men died, and insists the official version of events is “impossible,” he told Vice News.

The three men were Salah Ahmed Al-Salami, 37, from Yemen, Mani Shaman Al-Utaybi, 30, from Saudi Arabia, and Yasser Talal Al-Zahrani, 22, also from Saudi Arabia. None of them had been charged with any crime.

He explained in an incendiary interview with Vice News that the three men would have had to have committed suicide at exactly the same time in a cellblock where guards check on detainees every four minutes.

In the Charlie Hebdo psyop double standards, logical fallacies and crass ignorance are everywhere

Many of pointed out that apparently the French and most westerners seem to be much more upset when 12 people die in Paris then when hundreds, thousand and tens of thousands die elsewhere. It appears that the 1980s slogan "don't touch my pal" which was originally supposed to denounce racism now has been "re-worked" into a, if not racist, then at least a chauvinistic mode: don't kill French leftists no matter how offensive their discourse is. I won't make that case again here, but because by now anybody still capable of critical thought "got it", but I will look at another, much less noticed case of double standards: the one about the issue of moral pain.

Virginian-Pilot journalists: Corporate management pressure is stifling coverage

Things are not as they should be these days at The Virginian-Pilot, the largest newspaper in Virginia. In the fall, the paper produced an important investigation of municipal government, one that has sparked an official inquiry, led to policy changes at a local bank, and prompted the mayor of Virginia Beach to resign his lucrative private-sector job. By any expectation, the paper would have kept dogging the story, probing whether there was more to discover about the overlap between government and business elites in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia.

Instead, the newsroom has been consumed with warding off pressure from an unexpected source: upper management at its own paper. In the view of several Pilot journalists, that pressure has stifled further enterprise reporting. It has also led to concerns that the paper might even publicly backtrack from its published coverage.

As one veteran journalist at the paper put it: “We’re walking around with duct tape over our keyboards.”

Charlie Hebdo Attack: The Kouachi brothers died from CPS---Chronic Patsy Syndrome

Notice how the post-attack narrative has morphed from protecting freedom of the press and France from jihadists to protecting French Jews from Muslims and ridding Europe of anti-Semitism, which, according to Israeli PM Netenyahu, can only be accomplished by eliminating funding of the International Criminal Court so they can't try Israel for the massive number of war crimes it committed against Gaza and by letting European Jews and ONLY Jews, carry firearms?

Yes, that would work out splendidly, wouldn't it?

US Musicians Drafted into CIA’s MKULTRA

Here is a bit of US history that illustrates the reach of the CIA’s infamous mind-control program, MKULTRA.

Some would say the 1940s and 50s were the most vibrant and innovative period in the history of jazz.

During those years, it was common knowledge that musicians who were busted for drug use were shipped, or volunteered to go, to Lexington, Kentucky. Lex was the first Narcotics Farm and US Health Dept. drug treatment hospital in the US.

According to diverse sources, here’s a partial list of the reported “hundreds” of jazz musicians who went to Lex: Red Rodney, Sonny Rollins, Chet Baker, Sonny Stitt, Howard McGhee, Elvin Jones, Zoot Sims, Lee Morgan, Tadd Dameron, Stan Levey, Jackie McLean.

It’s also reported that Ray Charles was there, and William Burroughs, Peter Lorre, and Sammy Davis, Jr.

It was supposed to be a rehab center. A place for drying out.

Saudi Arabia declares all atheists are terrorists in new law to crack down on political dissidents

Saudi Arabia has introduced a series of new laws which define atheists as terrorists, according to a report from Human Rights Watch.

In a string of royal decrees and an overarching new piece of legislation to deal with terrorism generally, the Saudi King Abdullah has clamped down on all forms of political dissent and protests that could "harm public order".

The new laws have largely been brought in to combat the growing number of Saudis travelling to take part in the civil war in Syria, who have previously returned with newfound training and ideas about overthrowing the monarchy.

To that end, King Abdullah issued Royal Decree 44, which criminalises "participating in hostilities outside the kingdom" with prison sentences of between three and 20 years, Human Rights Watch said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears that no matter WHAT issue is vexing the sclerotic House of Saud, you can always, always bet that they will get it wrong.

Royal Decree # 44 is absolutely no exception to this reality.

And I am sorry, however; we hear the propaganda about Isis, characterizing it as "brutal" in their torture and killings of prisoners. They flog, stone, amputate, and behead, with wild abandon.

And YET, the US's second BBF in the Middle East (after Israel, of course) does precisely the same things, and no one in DC dares speak a whisper here.

IF any one of our readers happens to know any of the younger members of the House of Saud, please remind them of the following statement, which I think was one of the most profound statements ever said by the late President Kennedy: "where peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution is inevitable."

And as a Christian Pacifist, I abhor violence; I can, however, understand the circumstances through which it might come about.

Through this decree, and cracking down on peaceful protestors, the Saudi Government and the House of Saud are creating the perfect storm for a potentially very nasty and turbulent future.

That which is most rigid and hidebound,(and governmental policiy is no exception here) eventually, shatters.

Agency will confiscate infant if entire family doesn’t get flu shots

A state bureaucracy is threatening a mother with removal of an infant unless her entire family subjects themselves to flu shots.

Mrs. Smith is a dedicated foster mom, and has fostered seven babies. She currently raises five children, including an adopted 4-year-old daughter. Her objection to vaccines is based on safety concerns for her family, she revealed in an interview with KOMO News:

“I’ve done a lot of research on it and I don’t like some of the side effects that it has,” she said.

Among the alarming vaccine ingredients that Mrs. Smith referred to is Thimerosal, a drug stabilizer that contains the compound ethyl mercury, a known neurotoxin. Popular influenza vaccines such as Fluzone®, FluLaval®, and Fluvirin® each contain Thimerosal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That this dedicated mom, who took the trouble to do her due diligence on the chemical composition of the flu vaccine, should be demonized for having done so, demonstrates an absolute, out of control on steroids,State government department, run amok.

Families with skills and kids, get the hell out of this country while you still can. The window for your exodus is closing incrementally.

Welcome to the Oligarch Recovery – Majority of Public School Students are in Poverty for First Time in 50 Years

“When they first come in my door in the morning, the first thing I do is an inventory of immediate needs: Did you eat? Are you clean? A big part of my job is making them feel safe,” said Sonya Romero-Smith, a veteran teacher at Lew Wallace Elementary School in Albuquerque. Fourteen of her 18 kindergartners are eligible for free lunches.

She helps them clean up with bathroom wipes and toothbrushes, and she stocks a drawer with clean socks, underwear, pants and shoes.

From the Washington Post article: Majority of U.S. Public School Students are in Poverty

It’s a recovery so lopsided only Timothy Geithner or an oligarch could love it. Since 2008, U.S. economic policy has concentrated on funneling as much money as possible to billionaires, keeping the poor alive and submissive through government programs, and squeezing the middle class to death while at the same time holding out the carrot of hope that things will return to how they were before (they won’t).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please be aware that numbers like this do not just happen by accident.

Obama has been a master at waving his faux populism about,in order to get the masses to believe that he actually thinks this way.

But at the end of the day, he is no less a flunky to the monied classes who got him elected twice than was his predecessor, George Bush.

VIDEO: SWAT Team Kills Innocent Man In ‘Drug Raid’ That Found Just $2 Of Marijuana

But Coogle says that he repeatedly lied about suspects, and also stole drugs that he used tax-payer money (from police) to purchase. He admits that he completely fabricated everything about Jason Westcott, a young man who had no criminal convictions whatsoever.

But that lie was all police needed – no fact checking or verification of the rumors Coogle spun. They asked for and received a warrant to kick down his door for a drug raid.

But the SWAT team found just $2.00 worth of marijuana… and by that time, they had already shot and killed Westcott.

Chief of Obamacare rollout resigns amid allegations of misconduct

The top Obama official overseeing the so-called rollout of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) of 2010, commonly called ObamaCare, has notified the administration on Friday that she his leaving her position after serving five years. Marilyn Tavenner, the Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) administrator, said she will official vacate her office in February.

Tavenner's service included the rollout snafu in which the multi-million dollar HealthCare.gov website cause enormous problems for both the Obama administration and the Americans attempting to enroll. It also included allegations of "gaming the numbers" when it was discovered the administration released a report containing inflated enrollment statistics.

Charlie Hebdo: False flag operation

The Charlie Hebdo affair has many of the characteristics of a false flag operation. The attack on the cartoonists' office was a disciplined professional attack of the kind associated with highly trained special forces; yet the suspects who were later corralled and killed seemed bumbling and unprofessional. It is like two different sets of people.

Usually Muslim terrorists are prepared to die in the attack; yet the two professionals who hit Charlie Hebdo were determined to escape and succeeded, an amazing feat. Their identity was allegedly established by the claim that they conveniently left for the authorities their ID in the getaway car. Such a mistake is inconsistent with the professionalism of the attack and reminds me of the undamaged passport found miraculously among the ruins of the two WTC towers that served to establish the identity of the alleged 9/11 hijackers.

Anchor Jim Clancy Leaves CNN Following Abusive Twitter Exchange With Pro-Israel Activists

CNN anchor Jim Clancy has left the network one week after a bizarre exchange with pro-Israel activists on Twitter about the terrorist outrages in Paris, in which he derided his opponents as the “hasbara team” and used a derogatory term for disabled people.

The news was broken by industry publication Adweek, which linked to The Algemeiner‘s extensive reporting of the scandal, noting that Clancy’s departure “comes just days after the veteran journalist had an extended debate via Twitter over the Charlie Hebdo cartoons.”

CNN, however, made no mention of the scandal as it paid tribute to Clancy’s 34 years of service with the channel. “Jim Clancy is no longer with CNN. We thank him for more than three decades of distinguished service, and wish him nothing but the best,” a CNN spokesperson said.

Eric Holder Orders End to DOJ Program that Shares Seized Assets with Police

Big, huge news on the civil asset forfeiture front: Eric Holder is ordering an end to most of the Department of Justice’s Equitable Sharing Program. This is the program where the DOJ works with local law enforcement agencies for busts, and then the law enforcement agencies are permitted to keep 80 percent of the assets seized. It has been an incubator of the worst police abuses, as some agencies looked for any possible reason to take people’s property without ever actually accusing them with a crime.

The U.S. Corporate State has Become the Monarch Our Founders Despised

The colonists who wrote the founding documents of the United States detested the British Empire, and vowed to do whatever it took to gain their freedom and sovereignty from a foreign power that was depleting the wealth of the country without giving anything in return. Just as King George extracted wealth and resources from the colonies for his own gain in the 18th century, the current U.S. corporate state is extracting wealth and resources from the American people, at a much greater rate than King George could have ever hoped for. If the outrage that swept the U.S. in the last months of 2014 continues to escalate, 2015 may just be the year that a new revolutionary movement coalesces to bring this hopelessly corrupt, parasitic, and toxic system to a halt.

America's Dirtiest Cops: Cash, Cocaine and Corruption on the Texas Border

For the past year, Treviño and the Panama Unit had been operating one of the most efficient drug-robbery rings in Texas, taking money from some dealers and traffickers while using their police weapons and police cars to rob others. "These guys were outlaws," one former Hidalgo County deputy says. Adds another, "They were running around like that movie Training Day." They started off stealing ounces of weed and eventually stole so much they attracted the attention of the FBI, the DEA, Homeland Security and the Texas Rangers, not to mention at least one revenge-seeking gang.

New evidence shows CIA held prisoners in Lithuania

New analysis and previously unpublished documents released by legal charity Reprieve show that the CIA held prisoners in Lithuania in 2005 and 2006, contrary to official denials.

In a dossier and briefing submitted to the Lithuanian Prosecutor today, Reprieve reveals how the newly declassified US Senate Report on CIA detention correlates with flight data and contracting documents; and demonstrates that prisoners were moved into Lithuania in February and October 2005, and out of Lithuania to Afghanistan in March 2006.

A previous investigation by Lithuanian prosecutors, shelved in 2011, concluded that the CIA built a facility in a converted stable outside Vilnius, but argued there was no evidence that prisoners were ever held in it.

The Revenge of the CIA: Scapegoating Whistleblower Jeffrey Sterling

This week, in a federal courtroom, I’ve heard a series of government witnesses testify behind a screen while expounding on a central precept of the national security state: The CIA can do no wrong.

Those CIA employees and consultants are more than mere loyalists for an agency that soaks up $15 billion a year and continues to loosen the bonds of accountability. The docket says “United States of America v. Jeffrey Alexander Sterling,” but a more discerning title would be “National Security State v. The Public’s Right to Know.”

For the first time in 30 years, a case has gone to trial in a civilian court under the Espionage Act with charges that the defendant gave classified information to news media. Not far from the CIA headquarters in Northern Virginia, legal jargon is flying around the courtroom, but the law has very little to do with this case.

Déjà vu in France

I’m getting a big déjà vu feeling in the aftermath of the Charlie Hebdo killings in France.

The French government is declaring war on terrorism. It’s militarizing French society. It’s proposing a Patriot Act. It’s supporting a mass surveillance scheme. It’s advocating killing more people in the Middle East. There is even talk of using military tribunals to try terrorism cases.

Hey, those were all things that U.S. officials did after the 9/11 attacks. No wonder I’m getting a déjà vu feeling!

I’ll bet the German people are getting a bit of déjà vu too. That’s because their former president, Adolf Hitler, took the same sort of measures after the terrorist attack on the Reichstag. That’s what the Enabling Act was all about.

Fatal Bathurst police shooting confounds local residents

What has emerged is that Vienneau had just gotten off the train and was in his car ready to drive home when these men with guns ran up screaming at him to get out of the car. The police DID NOT IDENTIFY themselves as police, and Vienneau, apparently thinking these men with guns were criminals, panicked, locked his doors, and refused to move, whereupon the police shot and killed him. Tragically, Vienneau was not the man the police were looking for.

CIA on Trial in Virginia for Planting Nuke Evidence in Iran

The story is this. The CIA drew up plans for a key part of a nuclear bomb (what a CIA officer on Wednesday described in his testimony as "the crown jewels" of a nuclear weapons program), inserted flaws in the plans, and then had a Russian give those flawed plans to Iran.

During the trial on Wednesday morning, the prosecution's witnesses made clear both that aiding Iran in developing a part of a bomb would be illegal under U.S. export control laws, and that they were aware at the time that there was the possibility of what they were doing constituting just such aid.

So, why do it?

Watch your language! (even when speaking the undeniable truth)

BBC Watch is linked to CiF Watch, which is “dedicated to monitoring antisemitism and combating the assault on Israel’s legitimacy”. And to CAMERA. All three have the same two editors.

Hadar Sela is Managing Editor. She “has lived in Israel for over three decades… and has written pre-emptive reports on several anti-Israel campaigns, including the flotillas and the Global March to Jerusalem in March 2012”.

Funny, I thought the flotillas were bringing humanitarian aid to the desperate civilians cruelly imprisoned, blockaded and bombarded in the tiny enclave of Gaza. How is that deemed to be anti-Israel unless you’re a paranoid Zionist or one of the mindless criminal thugs imposing the blockade?

The other is Adam Levick, also Managing Editor of CiF Watch. He “made aliyah” in 2009. Aliya is moving your home to Israel. Since when did we or our national broadcaster take orders from a couple of Israelis?

In the United Kingdom, home of big brother and big brother to the U.S., they simply want to ban forms of communication they cannot intrude upon.

British Prime Minister David Cameron drew media attention this week when, in response to the Paris terrorist attacks, he said

“In our country, do we want to allow a means of communication between people which […] we cannot read?”

The Spectacular Media Failure on Charlie Hebdo

A core tenet of journalism is answering the question “why.” It’s the media’s duty to explain “why” an event happened so that readers will actually understand what they’re reading. Leave out the “why” and then assumptions and stereotypes fill in the blank, always readily supplied by politicians whose ridiculous answers are left unquestioned by the corporate media.

Because the real “why” was unexplained in the Charlie Hebdo massacre, an obviously false culprit was created, leading to a moronic national discussion in the U.S. media about whether Islam was “inherently” violent.

For the media to even pose this question either betrays a blinding ignorance about the Middle East and Islam, or a conscious willingness to manipulate public sentiment by only interviewing so-called experts who believe such nonsense.

EU ministers push ISPs to censor web after Paris attacks

In the aftermath of the terrorist attacks on the offices of satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo and a Jewish supermarket in Paris, EU ministers have issued a joint statement calling for ISPs to help to report and remove extremist material online.

The statement was signed by interior ministers from 11 European countries -- including the UK's Theresa May -- on 11 January, with French ministers and security representatives from the US, Canada and EU in attendance. It called for tighter internet surveillance and border controls.

Turkish President's Stunning Outburst: The French Are Behind The Charlie Hebdo Massacre; Mossad Blamed

The FT is most stunned that in Russia the events in Charlie Hebdo are being equated to the 9/11 tragedy:

“For the last 10 years, so-called Islamist terrorism has been under the control of one of the world’s leading intelligence agencies,” Alexei Martynov, director of the International Institute for New States, a think-tank, told pro-Kremlin internet outlet LifeNews. “I am sure that some American supervisors are responsible for the terror attacks in Paris, or in any case the Islamists who carried them out.”

House votes to cancel Obama amnesties

Brushing aside Democrats’ warnings of permanent political doom, House Republicans voted Thursday to cancel President Obama’s deportation amnesties, casting it as an effort to undo a runaway White House untethered either to the Constitution or even to its own words and promises.

In a debate freighted with political, symbolic and constitutional significance, House Speaker John A. Boehner read the 22 times Mr. Obama had denied he had the kinds of executive powers he ended up claiming last year when he announced his new amnesty, which applies to millions of illegal immigrants, granting them tentative legal status and work permits so they can compete legally for jobs.

For Sale To The Highest Bidder – How Middle Eastern Governments Are Buying Off The US Political Process

The quaint notion that the U.S. political system remotely resembles either a Republic or a Democracy should have been abandoned long ago. Any lingering illusions were surely extinguished last year, when an academic study empirically proved that the USA is nothing more than a corrupt oligarchy.

While having super rich and powerful American oligarchs running the show is one thing, the reality of the situation is actually far worse. Thanks to a recent article in Vice, we now know that foreign governments are aggressively employing their extraordinary wealth to advance their interests here on American soil. In many cases, these are autocratic regimes, which not only do not care about the best interests of the nation, they are often caught actively funding ISIS and even perpetuating 9/11 itself. Here are some excerpts from the piece:

Police Commissioner Involved in Charlie Hebdo Investigation “Commits Suicide”. Total News Blackout

Commissioner Helric Fredou was part of the police investigation into the Charlie Hebdo terror attack.

On Wednesday, as part of the Charlie Hebdo investigation, he dispatched a team of police officials under his jurisdiction. He is reported to have waited for the return of his team for a debriefing. Immediately following the police debriefing, he was involved in preparing his police report.

According to media reports, he committed suicide at around 1am on Thursday, within hours of the police debriefing. He used his own police weapon, a SIG-Sauer to “shoot himself in the head”.

At the time of his death, police claim to have not known the reason for his alleged suicide. This was reflected in their official statements to the media: “It is unknown at this time the reasons for his actions”.

However, a backstory appears to have been inserted simultaneously,
most likely from the very same police media liaisons, who then told the press that Fredou was ‘depressed and overworked’

Lobby group persuades Dutch college to ban “boycott Israel” event

A Dutch university banned a public meeting on the academic boycott of Israel scheduled to take place yesterday.

Although the board of the VU, a university in Amsterdam, had originally given permission to the meeting, it decided to forbid the event at the last minute.

In a statement, Jaap Winter, the chairperson of the VU board, made an apparent reference to the recent attacks on the satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo and on a Jewish supermarket in Paris.

According to Winter, the “civil unrest” created by “the events of last week” evoked “feelings of exclusion and insecurity” around the public meeting.

Civil Forfeiture Seminar Gurus Teach Cops to Dream Big

Released footage of a New Mexico attorney at a "Vehicle Forfeiture Conference" - yes, that was the actual seminar title - is quickly gaining ire. In it, the Las Cruces city attorney, Harry S.

Obama targets oil and gas industry, demands massive reduction in methane emissions

Taking direct aim at the oil-and-gas industry, President Obama on Wednesday put forth long-awaited regulations on methane emissions, setting an ambitious goal of reducing those emissions by 45 percent over the next decade.

The move comes just days before the State of the Union address and underscores that, in the final two years of presidency, Mr. Obama is looking to cement his legacy on climate-change and environmental issues.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It's a laudable goal but Obama's timing sucks. Right now the entire oil industry is being hammered by this ill-conceived oil price war against Russia. The very last thing they need is a whole new raft of "Obamaoil" regulations that will escalate costs, all in the name of controlling climate change, which changes no matter what we humans do. Methane in the atmosphere does not persist. In the presence of oxygen it decomposes to water and carbon dioxide, the first being what we need to live and the latter being what plants need to live. This underscores an observation I have been making all along; that the quality of thinking in this administration is rather poor. Policy decisions are being made for political (and in this case historical) reasons but are not thought all the way through to find potential negative consequences!

Rudy Giuliani Uses Charlie Hebdo Tragedy To Demand America Become A Police State

During an appearance on Fox & Friends Thursday, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani used the terrorist attack on a French newspaper to insist that the United States needs to have a police presence inside all Muslim places of worship. Giuliani and the hosts also used the segment to criticize both President Obama and current NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio for their apparent unwillingness to condemn the religion of Islam for the attacks and fully embrace Islamophobia. Specifically, the former Republican Presidential candidate said de Blasio made an “irrational” act by pulling police out of Muslim mosques in New York.

In several photographs a man in a special outfit is photographed with a black backpack (and a white square logo). This is ‘the’, or similar, backpack that the FBI claims to have carried the bomb. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, though, was clearly photographed carrying a small grey-white pack. He is also photographed leaving the area, and as some commentators claim, still carrying his backpack (a detailed report here from informationclearinghouse). It appears also that his defense lawyer is not interested in sourcing this evidence for his defense.

Russian Media, Turkish Politicians Suggest U.S., Israeli Involvement in Paris Attacks

Conspiracy theories are swirling around last week’s terror attacks in Paris, and beyond the customary fringe websites, they are being aired by Turkish politicians and mainstream Russian and Iranian media outlets.

Those making – or hinting at – the claims would have the world believe that U.S. or Israeli intelligence services were behind the attacks on the offices of the Charlie Hebdo newspaper and a kosher supermarket, which together with a street shooting left 17 victims and three terrorists dead over three days.

IRS keeps Albuquerque Tea Party in limbo 5 years after tax-exempt status application

Before there were the lost Lerner emails, the congressional hearings and the retaliatory budget cuts, there was the Albuquerque Tea Party, a group of politically minded folks in New Mexico who wanted to get together and share ideas for taking back their country. The IRS had other ideas about them.

Five years after the Albuquerque Tea Party applied for tax-exempt status under section 501(c)(4) of the tax code, they remain in limbo — their application apparently no closer to being approved or denied than it was the day they mailed it to the IRS on Dec. 29, 2009.

Turkish President's Stunning Outburst: The French Are Behind The Charlie Hebdo Massacre; Mossad Blamed

It was less than 48 hours ago when Turkey’s prime minister, Ahmet Davutoglu, joined millions marching in Paris to pay tribute to the 17 people killed by ISIS-supporting extremists. Then, almost the moment he got back, things changed, and as the FT politely paraphrases what transpired, the "country’s president struck a much more confrontational tone." That's one way of putting it. Another is that the former PM and current president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, of NATO-member Turkey did the unthinkable: accused the west, and French citizens in particular, of staging the Charlie Hebdo murder in order to blame Muslims, even as the mayor of Ankara said "Mossad is definitely behind such incidents?.?.?.?it is boosting enmity towards Islam."

But as Daniel Wickham points out (as amplified by the journalist Glenn Greenwald), many of the 40 leaders attending the rally in Paris don’t have the best record of defending the principle of free speech so viciously attacked earlier this week:

A new report from the Oakland Institute, Walking on the West Side: the World Bank and the IMF in the Ukraine Conflict,exposes how the international financial institutions swooped in on the heels of the political upheaval and are vying to deregulate and throw open Ukraine’s vast agricultural sector to foreign investors. Former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych’s rejection of an EU Association agreement in favor of a Russian deal was a major factor in the crisis that led to his ouster in February 2014. Immediately following the change to a pro-EU government, the country’s pivot to the West was solidified with a $17 billion loan from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and an additional $3.5 billion aid package from the World Bank, both of which require significant economic reforms and austerity measures that are set to have disastrous effects within the nation.

The US Department of Justice has called for the dismissal of a lawsuit filed by Twitter, in which the social network alleges its First Amendment rights are violated when the government forbids it to reveal national security requests for user data.

Twitter’s lawsuit concerns the publishing of transparency reports that detail government requests for customer information. A deal struck in January 2014 between the Department of Justice (DOJ) and five technology companies relaxed restrictions on disclosure, but Twitter has argued that the deal did not go far enough in allowing the companies to reveal exactly how many orders it gets from the government and “what types of legal process have not been received.”

According to NYPD police officers interviewed by The Daily Beast, many New York cops enjoy the slowdown and prefer focusing on what they call “good arrests” that protect the public, rather than discretionary offenses aimed at raising revenue for the city.

Ditching the Dollar

One of the symptoms of a declining empire is that it becomes less and less productive and therefore less relevant to other countries. Any empire, whilst in its prime, will have a strong currency. As its productive relevance declines, so will its currency. Invariably, its leaders attempt to keep the currency strong, in spite of the decline in national relevance. Rather than return to a more productive condition, the empire almost invariably resorts to force.

The US has been unusually forceful in this regard. In order to retain the dollar as the currency upon which oil is denominated and paid for, the US has attacked countries (Iraq, Libya) when their leaders have announced that they will, in future, accept other currencies or gold as payment for oil.

Israel Shahak also commented on Jewish hatred of Christianity and its symbols, suggesting, “Dishonouring Christian religious symbols is an old religious duty in Judaism.” According to Shahak, “spitting on the cross, and especially on the Crucifix, and spitting when a Jew passes a church, have been obligatory from around AD 200 for pious Jews.”

Interestingly, Jewish spitting has had an impact on the urban landscape of Europe. The following can be read in a ‘Travel Guide for Jewish Europe.’

A town is working to “demolish a working-class neighborhood” by seizing 354 homes and passing the land off to a private commercial developer. Using federal dollars and the highly-abused power of eminent domain, the city intends to evict multitudes of families to make way for economic progress.

The community under fire is called “Pleasant Ridge.” It contains hundreds of small homes that were built during World War II as military housing. Today the homes are privately-owned and contain working-class and poor families, many of which have owned their homes for decades.

If Americans were honest with themselves they would acknowledge that the Republic is no more. We now live in a police state. If we do not recognize and resist this development, freedom and prosperity for all Americans will continue to deteriorate. All liberties in America today are under siege.

The false debate between freedom of expression and religious extremism

After the deadly attack, many cartoonists reduced the event to a confrontation between an armed, bearded jihadist and a pen. A simple representation, yet it is both powerful and misleading.

After the 9/11 terrorist attacks, George W. Bush and many like-minded politicians and media outlets confined the attacks to a fight between evil (the "Islamic terrorists") and good (the United States and its allies), or between the free world (led by the United States) and oppression (led by Al-Qaeda and the Taliban).

When Bush famously proclaimed "you are either with us or you're with the terrorists," he truly believed that he had received a divine message to liberate Muslim countries from oppression. He consequently built all of his political and war strategies around this sort of "prophecy."

The Move to Muzzle Dieudonné M’Bala M’Bala

French mainstream media and politicians are starting off the New Year with a shared resolution for 2014: permanently muzzle a Franco-African comedian who is getting to be too popular among young people.

In between Christmas and New Year’s Eve, no less than the President of the Republic, François Hollande, while visiting Saudi Arabia on (very big) business, said his government must find a way to ban performances by the comedian Dieudonné M’Bala M’Bala, as called for by French Interior Minister, Manuel Valls.

The leader of the conservative opposition party, UMP, Jean-François Copé, immediately chimed in with his “total support” for silencing the unmanageable entertainer.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In the eyes of the French, Dieudonné must be silenced because of his criticism of Israel, which is declared anti-Semitic, while Charlie Bebdo (which fired one of its own writers for anti-Semitism) is being lionized as martyrs to freedom of expression for publishing this...

Hidden in plain sight (revisited)


Ten months ago, the Rebel Website's editor "Rebel of Oz" published an article exposing the manipulations performed by leading website ranking firm Alexa for the purpose of reducing the search engine ranking of dissident websites. (http://therebel.website/en/editorial/...) After recently changing the domain name of the Rebel Website from therebel.org to therebel.website, Rebel of Oz revisited the matter. Here's what he has found out.

Judge Orders NYPD to Release Records on X-ray Vans

A state judge has ordered the New York City Police Department to release records on a secretive program that uses unmarked vans equipped with X-ray machines to detect bombs.

The ruling follows a nearly three-year legal battle by ProPublica, which had requested police reports, training materials, contracts and any health and safety tests on the vans under the state's Freedom of Information Law.

ProPublica filed the request as part of its investigation into the proliferation of security equipment, including airport body scanners, that expose people to ionizing radiation, which can mutate DNA and increase the risk of cancer.

FLASHBACK - A Parent's Horrid Nightmare: Coming Soon to YOUR State?

The state of California has just passed bill AB499, which will permit minor children as young as 12 years old to be vaccinated with sexually transmitted disease vaccines like Gardasil without parental knowledge or parental consent. This means that if you live in California, school or medical personnel would be allowed to vaccinate your child against an STD without your ever knowing it.

Arkancide is the unfortunate habit of potential witnesses to the Clintons' dirty dealings in Arkansas suddenly deciding to shoot themselves twice in the back of the head.

After Bill Clinton became President the phenomenon spilled over to Washington D.C. when Hillary Clinton's ex-lover Vincent Foster was "Arkancided."

NYC arrests dropping over ‘surreal’ NYPD ‘work stoppage’

Speaking with RT, Taibbi said the so-called “work stoppage” – portrayed as a political police protest against Mayor Bill de Blasio over his sympathetic comments towards police brutality protesters – seems to be about trying to hit the mayor in the budget without endangering the public.

“The police, in this slowdown, they are halting handing out parking tickets, which are enormously lucrative for the city, and they are also not doing these ‘quality of life’ summonses, which are a huge hardship on the people who get them but make significantly less money for the city. So there are two different things going on here,” he said.

Police tackled and restrained the teenage sister of 12-year-old Tamir Rice when she rushed to her dying brother after a Cleveland, Ohio cop fatally shot the boy in November, according to newly released video footage of the now notorious incident.

The Cleveland Police Department shared the 30-minute recording on Wednesday night, lending credence to claims made by the Rice family about how law enforcement acted in the immediate aftermath of the shooting. This comes in the midst of a wave of similar tragic officer-involved incidents that have unfolded across the United States in recent months.

OF THE LIARS, BY THE LIARS, AND FOR THE LIARS

Let's start with some basic concepts. You live in an age of lies. Every day of your life you are literally being drowned in lies. Lies by government. Lies by advertisers. Lies by the corporate media.

Truth has become such a valuable commodity that the government is economizing it!

Liars, meaning good convincing liars (i.e. sociopaths, who evince no guilt when they lie) , lie because they are able to get what they want from people, especially if those people are conditioned from childhood to tell and to believe that others will tell the truth.

It may seem that I am stating the obvious, but the point I want to make is that all ruling power is, is the willingness and ability to do things the ruled may not, or have been conditioned to believe they cannot do.

You are taught not to steal, yet government reserves to itself the right to steal, obfuscating the theft with words like excise, confiscation, pillage, taxation, and in the extreme, conquest.

Here is a long list of the monstrous lies used by rulers to trick their people into wars. The "Terror" attacks (Reg Trademark Mossad) in Paris appear to be more of the same.

Paris Terror Attack: 2nd Hostage Situation Reported in France

With negotiations underway in a hostage standoff with the suspected gunmen in Wednesday's massacre at a French satirical newspaper office, a second hostage situation was reported in eastern Paris Friday, police told ABC News.

Heavily armed SWAT teams moved into Porte de Vincennes after the second hostage situation developed at a kosher grocery, involving a gunman and at least one hostage. Police told ABC News that a suspect in a Thursday fatal shooting of a police officer in Paris's Monrouge area -- identified as Amedi Coulibaly, 32 -- is believed to be involved with the grocery standoff.

Iowa cop shoots woman dead in front of family, while trying to pacify their dog

An Iowa cop shot and killed a 34-year-old woman in front of her husband and four-year-old son. Witnesses say he was aiming for the family dog, which startled him as he was trying to break up an argument between the couple.

The victim, Autumn Mae Steele, of South Garden Ave. in Burlington, Iowa, was pronounced dead on arrival at hospital on Tuesday.

Policing comes to a stop in New York, people get along peacefully and society continues

We are constantly reminded by State institutions, from lecture halls to mainstream "news" organizations, that if it weren't for the police out there arresting everybody, society would break down immediately.

Oh there will be the motorcycle gangs with flamethrowers invading supermarkets, the wild-eyed adolescents disobeying teachers and leaving school, the religious conservatives forming new dictatorships, the horde of unwashed illegal immigrants urinating on our golf courses, the rabid murder parties and fornication spilling onto the streets, zoo animals escaping and mauling the children - the end of human civilization.

Well, there has finally been a "virtual stoppage" of police activity in New York, and the people there are... reading blogs, working, buying groceries, watching netflix, waiting in lines, saying hi to strangers, checking facebook. Same as usual. It looks like they haven't murdered each other yet.

Of course they haven't.

But the persecution is by no means viewpoint-neutral. It instead is overwhelmingly directed at the country’s Muslims for expressing political opinions critical of the state’s actions.

Breaking the Chains

The pendulum swung far to the right after 9/11. Now it is swinging back,” Hamm said. “Fear and paralysis gripped the country after 9/11 and the creation of our authoritarian police state. We are overcoming this fear. The rebellion in Ferguson was not planned. It was spontaneous. People said, ‘Enough.’ They struck out in the only way they knew how. All the other ways—and I have no doubt that the people in Ferguson and St. Louis, as we have, marched peacefully, sent letters and went to city council meetings to protest police violence—have proved ineffective. We will see other incidents like this one, but because of demographic changes these rebellions will occur in places that did not rebel previously.”

EU Showdown: Greece Takes on the Vampire Squid

Greece and the troika (the International Monetary Fund, the EU, and the European Central Bank) are in a dangerous game of chicken. The Greeks have been threatened with a “Cyprus-Style prolonged bank holiday” if they “vote wrong.” But they have been bullied for too long and are saying “no more.”

A return to the polls was triggered in December, when the Parliament rejected Prime Minister Antonis Samaras’ pro-austerity candidate for president. In a general election, now set for January 25th, the EU-skeptic, anti-austerity, leftist Syriza party is likely to prevail. Syriza captured a 3% lead in the polls following mass public discontent over the harsh austerity measures Athens was forced to accept in return for a €240 billion bailout.

Austerity has plunged the economy into conditions worse than in the Great Depression. As Professor Bill Black observes, the question is not why the Greek people are rising up to reject the barbarous measures but what took them so long.

How many people are killed every year by the police in the U.S.? The exact number is not known. There is no federal agency that keeps track. The FBI compiles annual statistics for “justified homicides” by police—and all reported police killings are registered as “justified” by the FBI.

Under Obama: Federal Debt Up $84,266 Per Full-Time Private-Sector Worker

The federal government drove $789,473,350,613.20 deeper into debt in calendar year 2014, an increase that equaled $6,875 per household, $7,458 per full-time year-round worker, and $8,853 per full-time year-round private-sector worker.

According to the Treasury, the debt started calendar year 2014 at $17,351,970,784,950.10 and ended it at $18,141,444,135,563.30.

When Obama took office on Jan. 20, 2009, the debt was $10,626,877,048,913.08. Since then, it has increased $7,514,567,086,650.22--which is $65,443 per household, $70,985 per full-time worker and $84,266 per full-time private-sector worker.

Nye County commissioners need strengthening in protecting our land & resources against the BLM - Latest from Cliven Bundy

A notice from the federal registry reveals that the federal government is seeking even more power over the Nye County people by claiming further control of the lands and resources. Federal Register / Vol. 79, No.197 Notice, outlines plans to make much more of Nye County, Areas of Critical Environmental Concern (ACECs). ACEC’s are human restricted areas.

The Nye County people soon will have less access to their lands and resources than any other people in the history of this country.

On December 1st Nye County Commissioners held a meeting discussing the federal attempt for more control over the land and resources in the county.

Due to the unanimous voice of the citizens of Nye County, the commissioners ended the meeting with a decision to draft a resolution revoking any authority the county had given the BLM and declaring that federal agencies do not have constitutional authority to administer land or resources in the State of Nevada including Nye County.

Protesting the right to protest?

In 1991, the Cold War between the US and the USSR ended, as, economically, the USSR had run its course. Since that time, the US has had the ability to back off on armaments and to strengthen itself economically, to become even more powerful as the world’s present empire.

But, of course, that’s not what they did. Instead, they went headlong in the direction of becoming a more highly armed, more fascist state. Along the way, they became extremely reckless with their economy, following a Keynesian model that contributed to the greatest debt bubble the world has ever seen.

Sony Hack a Prime Excuse for New US Cybersecurity Laws

Congress has been reluctant to pass the various draconian cybersecurity laws pushed by the administration in recent years, but that may be changing because of the high-profile Sony Pictures hack .

With the FBI ‘successfully’ pinning it on North Korea, at least so far as everyone on Capital Hill is concerned, there is a great deal of pressure for Congress to “do something,” and little interest in the evidence that North Korea had nothing to do with it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to the FBI: if you had real, actionable evidence that North Korea hacked into SONY, that would be one thing; but you don't so the charge here is nothing more than a bold-faced lie, and both US citizens, and the world, knows it.

The only bloody reason you pinned this on North Korea is that North Korea, at the New Year, was reaching out to South Korea for a new round of talks, aimed at ratcheting down the tension between the two countries.

Should that have happened, it would have curtailed this administration's ability to engage in war with North Korea, as a back door to a war with China, which must defend it due to treaty obligations.

The FBI's credibility, if it was not before, is in absolute meltdown, and thinking Americans do not believe one word you say.

The Walls Are Crumbling Down Around the “Official 9/11 Story” – Why?

An absolutely monumental shift is in process that most have not recognized yet. The truth, or at least some truth, is about to be shown to the American masses about 9/11. I say American masses because everywhere I’ve gone in the world outside of the US, with few exceptions, almost everyone knows that the US government conspiracy theory on 9/11 is for people with tinfoil hats that are either completely zombified or are under mass hypnosis. Most of the rest of the world looks on the US like “The Truman Show” and can’t believe how many people in the show don’t realize it’s not real.

Lawmakers seek Saudi 9/11 smoking gun

Some members of Congress are ramping up their call for the public release of 28 classified pages from the government’s 9/11 report. The top-secret pages reportedly reveal Saudi funding of the terrorist attack.

On Wednesday, Reps. Walter B. Jones, R-N.C., and Stephen Lynch, D-Mass., will join former Democratic Sen. Bob Graham of Florida for a Capitol Hill press conference on House Resolution 428, demanding that President Obama declassify the 28 pages of the Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 2001.

The 28 pages were initially classified by President George W. Bush and have remained under seal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Saudi Arabia does not have a history of dirty tricks, nor a demonstrated ability to carry out such deceptions. More to the point, Saudi Arabia has no motive to attack the United States.
The Saudi princes have grown very rich indeed through the Petrodollar arrangement. Saudi Arabia buys many American products and weapons ($61 billion in 2011), and unlike Israel, the American taxpayer does not
have to give them the money first with which to buy those weapons. Whereas Israel constantly takes money out of the US, the Saudis pour it in! Private Saudi investment in the US economy is over $400 billion. Saudi Arabia is a major creditor to the US Government. Exact figures are hard to find but Saudi Arabia has loaned the US Government hundreds of billions of dollars.

Saudi Arabia is not going to risk an attack on the US because all that wealth would vanish. The Saudi wealth inside the US would be frozen or seized, and the outstanding loans to the US would never be repaid.
The "useful idiots" trying to save Israel by blaming 9-11 on Saudi Arabia have yet to come up with a motive for the Saudis to do something like 9-11 that risks losing all that cash.

Remember that Saudi Arabia was being framed for 9-11 right from the start. One of the accused hijackers, a Saudi Pilot named Saeed Al-Ghamdi, was
still alive after 9-11
and sued the US Government for defaming him.

And finally, here is some common sense that totally undermines the attempt to frame Saudi Arabia for 9-11. If Saudi Arabia really wanted to hurt the United States, they don't need to fly airplanes into skyscrapers to do it. All they have to do is ask for their money back, all at once. The resulting damage to the US financial system would make 9-11 look like a minor inconvenience in comparison.

And it would be perfectly legal for Saudi Arabia to ask for their money back.

What Most Police Officers Think Of The US Constitution

Face the facts. Most police officers swore to uphold the constitution because it was a necessary component of their induction ceremony. No induction equals no job, and no job equals no paycheck. People will metaphorically roll their eyes and swear to uphold anything if it means the difference in bringing home the bacon or not.

If the constitution is something a lot of them really don’t have “the feels” for, then you obviously need to possess it for yourself. Because you cannot count on the police to follow the rules, nor abide by the limitations on authority that the document is supposed to enforce.

DARPA Developing Microdrones Designed to Sneak Into Homes

The federal government apparently isn’t content with remotely watching and recording your every electronic (and real world) movement; it will soon control microdrones that could then be sent surreptitiously into your home. And unless the warrentless eletronic surveillance already being conducted by government-run-amok is brought to a halt, this new form of home invasion will also be warrantless.

DARPA, the military’s research and development arm, has announced its intent to sponsor development of a new category of these tiny monitors.

In a press release soliciting bids for manufacture of the microdrones, DARPA doesn’t define the potential target theatre, but any promise of foreign focus is illusory in a world where the Constitution’s prohibition on warrantless searches is seen as nothing more than a quaint parchment barrier to those determined to keep an eye (and ear) on every person in the world.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I will tell you precisely where I would like to see those microdrones deployed immediately after they have been developed: in the homes of every family of every military or research entity which has signed off on this concept, permanently.

Between the unholy trinity of the Patriot Act, the Homeland Security Act, and the NDAA, US citizens no longer have the rights to life, liberty, or privacy, even when you are doing absolutely nothing wrong or illegal.

Remember This When the Media Tells You “The Cop Had to Shoot Him Because He Was Armed”

How is it that these guns (sometimes knives) keep showing up on people after being shot by police?

The answer: throw-away weapons.

Throw-aways, or what are sometimes called drop weapons, became very popular in Iraq. Some US troops would carry a few throw-away AKs in their vehicles.

The idea behind having throw-aways is that when you kill an innocent person, you can plant the throw-away weapon on them moments after their death.

This allows you to maintain that the victim — who will now be named a “suspect” by Statist media outlets — was armed, that you had no choice but to shoot him, and that you “feared for your life.”

Quite literally, a throw-away weapon allows you to get away with murder.

Davos Elites Enjoys the Global Depression

When Klaus Schwab, founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum started the yearly pilgrimage to the inner sanctums of the Swiss Gnomes, he could hardly conceive that the ritual would turn into a celebrity bash of the super rich. The Davos venue is appropriate. Only rarified air is suitable for the global Mattoids. Billed as an assembly of business moguls, it really is more of an audition of well-heeled speculators vying for inclusion into the real power elites who make or break governments, economies and political destinies.

Using a combination of a Hollywood press agent, Madison Avenue ad firm and a media business channel the CNBC cheerleaders, the Davos clan relishes in their ill-gotten privilege and influence. The too big to fail mantra fits into the nihilism of their cult devotion of manipulated markets.

Continuity of Government Commission

It is amazing that so many citizens are eager to espouse the virtues of democracy. Multitudes of Americans love their government, no matter what it does or where it goes - the State is their mistress. Trusting in the institutions of the federal government is an article of faith, democracy protects the public, voting selects the representatives. Are you a ‘true believer’ in the system that serves the populace? Or are you one of those awful cynics that knock the good intentions of the inner circle that brings freedom and justice to the little folks? Surely, you count yourself among the chorus of the cheering crowd! Now you have your fondest dream - coming soon - to safeguard the protector of the people. It’s focus is on preserving Congress, the President, and the Supreme Court and comes from “The Continuity of Government Commission”.

Gun Control Is Here: Guns Permanently Confiscated After Veteran Got Treatment For Insomnia

For those who have always believed that it can’t happen here, think again, because it IS happening, and things are only going to get worse as data surveillance becomes a way of life.

Gun confiscation at the hands of medical records sharing is now officially a reality, with serious consequences for the individuals involved.

Now, under ObamaCare, the United States is on pace to swiftly become a snitch society that would make East Germany and Soviet Russia blush.

Step Out Of The Car, Son – It’s Ours Now

The cadet knows he has nothing to fear but the ticket – he’s sober, responsible and the designated driver for his more tipsy friends in the backseat.

But when the police officer returns to the car, he spots one of the cadet’s pals with a rolled up joint.

Now it’s not just a ticket. Now the cadet’s car is impounded. And even though the cadet was charged with nothing but speeding, his car is sold off at auction, and the police department just got themselves a brand new copy machine.

Sound like overkill for the crime?

2015 Will Be Worse For Obamacare Than Its 2014 Debut As A Result Of New Burdens The White House Is Saddling Onto Insurers

An ominous and largely ignored outcome of Obamacare’s failed launch is that the large insurers have not signed up to offer health plans on the state exchanges.

The nation’s big insurers have mainly sat out of the program, even after a reported browbeating from the White House.

The reason is simple. Offering plans on the exchanges is a bad business deal.

‘US pursuing political agenda, not justice, sanctioning N.Korea over Sony hack’

There is no hard evidence for the United States’ claims that the North Korea was behind the hack on Sony. In fact, the evidence seems to point in a very different direction. Reports in US and global media say experts taking part in the investigation essentially rule out North Korea’s participation. They say the evidence simply isn’t there to point that finger.

Moreover, those very same experts point out that due to the complexity of the cyberattack it is not quite possible to determine who was behind it in mere 48 or 72 hours as was the case with the US government. Rather than seeing the evidence and drawing conclusions from that, it seems that Washington is pursuing a political agenda and using this issue to further that agenda.

How Many of These Secret Surveillance Programs Do you Know About?

According to various publications in the American and foreign media, the United States has created a global system of cyber espionage that allows the interception and processing of personal data around the globe in violation of fundamental human rights. Tapped phones, intercepted short messages, supervised discussions in social networks and stolen emails – this is the ugly reality we are living in. The NSA and other units of the United States Intelligence Community are more than capable of breaching any mobile operating system, be it iOS, Android or BlackBerry OS.

Washington and its agencies are literally spending billions of taxpayer dollars annually under the convenient guise of the “war on terror”, which in fact turns out to be a hidden war against its own citizens, now deprived of basic human rights. But what makes it even worse is that it’s pushing its satellite countries to launch an all-out offensive against the civil liberties of Europe and beyond.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The alleged "war on terror" is simply a cover for a continuing surveillance war against Americans.

We have moved so quickly from "the land of the free...and the home of the brave" to the "land of the cowed...and the home of the surveilled" quickly enough to make my head spin.

Prince Andrew named in US lawsuit over underage sex claims

A woman who claims that an American investment banker loaned her to rich and powerful friends as an underage “sex slave” has alleged in a US court document that she was repeatedly forced to have sexual relations with Prince Andrew.

The accusation against the Duke of York is contained in a motion filed in a Florida court this week in connection with a long-running lawsuit brought by women who say they were exploited by Jeffrey Epstein, a multi-millionaire convicted of soliciting sex with an underage girl after a plea deal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Prince's lawyers are already claiming that the Prince is protected from prosecution by Epstein's prosecution deal, which blocks prosecution of all "co-conspirators", meaning the rich and powerful Epstein was pimping the girls to.

But in the court of world opinion, this is looking really bad for the elites (and really good for the masses, who need to face up to the reality of what kind of sub-humans rule them).



The above is a photograph of Prince Andrew. The young woman he has his arm around is identified as Virginia Roberts, who has come forward as Jane Doe #3 in the lawsuit. Virginia's presence at Epstein's "events" is confirmed by aircraft records and court documents.

The CIA has to approve every script for spy drama The Americans

The Cold War TV spy drama The Americans is a fictional account of two Soviet spies living in the United States. It may be fiction, but that doesn't stop American intelligence agencies from being concerned about the show's content. In fact, the CIA has to approve every script before it's even shot.

The Americans was created by Joe Weisberg, a former CIA agent. And since he knows all kinds of stuff that the CIA would like to keep secret, they've reserved the right to censor anything they don't like on the show.

Millions of Obamacare subsidy recipients may need to pay back-taxes.

The problem for Democrats is not exactly this: “As many as 3.4 million people who received Obamacare subsidies may owe refunds to the federal government, according to an estimate by a tax preparation firm… H&R Block is estimating that as many as half of the 6.8 million people who received insurance premium subsidies under the Affordable Care Act benefited from subsidies that were too large, the Wall Street Journal reported Thursday.” Although it’s definitely going to be a problem: ‘several million people suddenly discovering that they now owe back taxes to the government over Obamacare’ is not exactly a good scenario, especially if you belong to the political party that set that scenario up in the first place.

A New IRS Horror Story That Makes Past Scandals Pale In Comparison

The practice has resulted in emptying the bank account of an innocent restaurant owner and an army sergeant in Virginia who was saving money for his daughter’s college education.

Then there was the retail business whose insurance only covered $10,000 in the event of a lost or stolen sum of money. As a result, the owner, who was cautious about keeping too much cash on site, was careful to send employees to make bank deposits throughout the day in amounts less than $10,000 so he could rely on his insurance policy.

In each of these cases, and many others, the IRS, without notice or so much as a criminal complaint or indictment, swooped in and emptied the bank accounts of these completely legitimate people and businesses.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The United States had abandoned the principle of innocent until proven guilty and returned to the Napoleonic Code, in which one is presumed guilty until innocence can be proven.

Now Legal, Declassified Documents Reveal How CIA “Develop” Covert Propaganda “Themes to Push ‘Hot Buttons’ of Americans”

We are continually lied to and deceived by the mass media and our government institutions. Professionally-crafted propaganda techniques to frame the story and, in many cases, to advance totally fabricated events, have been used to goad on the population and gain support for the State, even at the expense of what is best for the people.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government does not have a legal right to lie to its people.

And if you want a recent example of this, just take a look at Obama's declared intention to punish North Korea with sanctions about the Sony data breach, which North Korea did not do.

But North Korea was making overtures to South Korea about meeting, at a very high level, to replace the armistice, well over 60 years old this year, with a real peace treaty; and of course, Obama couldn't stand to see that happen, because it would ruin his chances of starting his war against North Korea as a back door to a war with China, because both China's currency and military are on the ascendent.
