The Price of Telling The Truth…. An Abusive IRS Audit

Let’s now fast forward to June of 2013….. following my Congressional presentation and then having been interviewed and given dozens of presentations on the hazards of Obama Care and what is needed for true health care reform, as well as hosting The Operation Freedom Radio Show since 2010, the letter we received from The IRS on June 13th, 2013, unfortunately, confirmed my diagnosis 4 years earlier that the current administration worships at the alter of Fascism.

Beyond a Doubt: Our Media War Propaganda and The Film You Almost Didn’t See

This is the story about a film which none of were supposed to see. Not because the film wasn’t up to professional journalistic standards, or that it was of poor quality. It was neither of those. Against the odds and the establishment-owned international media syndicate, award-winning filmmaker and journalist John Pilger reveals one of the most damning indictments of American and British mainstream media. The content of this timeless film is stunning, and show beyond any reasonable doubt, that our media are not only complicit in advancing conflict around the globe, but are actively engaged in pushing it on behalf of those who seek to profit from international conflagrations.

Creativity and Non-Conformity Now listed as a Mental Illness by Psychiatrists

Now thanks to thought policing by the American Psychiatric Association the latest addition of the DSM-IV (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) is setting up the dominoes for arbitrary diagnosis of any dissenting individuals.

listed as new mental illnesses are above-average creativity and cynicism. The manual goes on to identify a mental illness called “oppositional defiant disorder” or ODD. Defined as an “ongoing pattern of disobedient, hostile and defiant behavior,” symptoms include questioning authority, negativity, defiance, argumentativeness, and being easily annoyed.

Albuquerque police chief welcomes FBI probe

Sure he welcomes the investigation. He wont release one of the shooters video.
Sounds like obstruction of justice to me! Can you say COVERUP!

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. —Albuquerque Police Chief Gorden Eden said Friday he does not believe his department has a problem using deadly excessive force.
Eden said he stands by his department, despite the 23 fatal police-involved shootings since 2010.

APD declining to release Boyd video

Coverup and obstruction of justice! Gordon Eden was a fed. Don't expect the US Attorney to do more than throw more Gorilla dust into the air!

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – It’s the video seen around the world.

Helmet camera footage from Officer Dominique Perez of the controversial shooting of homeless camper James Boyd released Friday has drawn protests. There’s now also a federal criminal investigation into the case.

But what about the lapel video from the other officer who shot Boyd, Keith Sandy?

KRQE News 13 has learned Sandy’s lapel video may have drawn special attention from federal investigators.

Since the Perez video has been released, News 13 has been specifically requesting that lapel video be released, but APD has so far refused.

Media Control Grows More Difficult ... And Obvious

We have noticed a trend toward boldness – even brazenness – when it comes to manipulating the media in the US. It's as if politicians especially are not even bothering to hide their intentions.

We recently ran an article entitled, "Congress Mulls Licensing Speech?" that reported on this trend.

The subject of the article was the shield law that Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York was trying to push through the US Senate. Schumer was portraying the bill as something that was needed to protect "journalists" from US Intel agencies that are increasingly asking courts to place reporters in jail for not revealing their sources upon request.

Of course, what would have been more reasonable – were Schumer ever apt to be reasonable – would be to pass a law forbidding Intel agencies from trying to put reporters in jail.

The leak to kill all leaks

After having been under attack for weeks by a barrage of leaked documents and recordings about corruption at the highest state level, a few days before the elections, the beleaguered Turkish government all of a sudden is off the hook after a spectacular leak was published online, one that immediately eclipses all previous leaks.
Why? Because the latest leak took away the focus on corruption since it touches directly upon the security of the country. Because everybody is angry and concerned about such a blatant example of espionage. Because the government cleverly linked the people responsible for the security leak to the ones who masterminded the corruption tapes.

The Militarized U.S. Police, by the Numbers

Many of us know retired police officers who remember a world where it was considered a failure to draw a weapon unless under direct attack. Even if such an action was required, the result was nightmare inducing. Today's police seem to have lost such empathy. As a consequence, police are rarely a welcome sight these days; they are being equipped and trained as if they are an occupying force (even in small towns), replete with body armor, tactical gear, and vehicles coming straight from the US military at bargain prices.

What If Everything You Were Ever Taught Was A Lie?

Ultimately, the education system can be blamed for feeding us propaganda and forcing us to regurgitate it so we can “fit in” with the rest of society. Our public school systems are set up to get the students primed for economic slavery without ever offering courses that allow to students to think creatively or freely.

If you trace the company’s who print our children’s textbooks, you’ll find a Zionist agenda behind them all. For example, George W. Bush’s grandfather, Prescott Bush, was arrested for funding both sides of World War II, yet we never learned this in school. Why? Because had we learned this, NEITHER Bush would have been elected president for having a traitor in their lineage.

And surely, Christopher Columbus didn’t “discover” America.

Which is precisely what the Conservative party is counting on — because C-13 is a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

The government’s talking points notwithstanding, only a small portion of C-13 deals with cyber-bullying. Most of the bill is devoted to expanding police powers to search and seize personal Internet data.

IMF Exposed in Ukraine

The Ukraine debacle has exposed certain truths to the world about the way the West operates and how the power elite destabilizes countries politically in order to gain further control over them. IMF officials are doing themselves no favors by participating, but doubtless have little choice.

This IMF tranche is not a helpful gesture toward Ukraine so much as part of a calculated and continued campaign of destabilization and occupation. It is the Internet Era itself that is exposing these manipulations and making them considerably less effective in the 21st century than in the 20th.

Dissecting Obama’s Proposed NSA Reforms

So, after nine months of ignoring the Snowden revelations, downplaying the the Snowden revelations, not telling the truth about the Snowden revelations, insulting the Snowden revelations, sending members of his administration to lie to Congress about the Snowden revelations and claiming everything the NSA does is legal, righteous and necessary to keep the barbarians outside the gates, Obama is coincidentally now proposing some “reforms” without acknowledging the Snowden revelations. Let’s have a look based on what we know right now.

Webmaster's Commentary:

In any event, this government's word is worthless, and the only way We The People will know the spying is over is for every one of those NSA data centers to be burned to the ground, with every official who supported this open violation of the Fourth Amendment to be used for the kindling!

Pundits Never Have to Say They're Sorry

Pundits Never Have to Say They're Sorry–but They Can Demand Others Apologize for Being Right

It's been said that being a TV pundit means never having to say you're sorry. But you can demand that other people apologize for being right. And being wrong doesn't seem to affect certain pundits' ability to gobble up airtime.
This came to mind seeing National Review editor Rich Lowry on Meet the Press on March 23, offering his analysis of Russia:
"Angela Merkel said that famous remark that she talked to Putin and he was living in a different world, that's literally true. We all thought we were living in a post-Cold War world where everyone accepted basic, international norms. He's living in a world where he can take territory through lies and force of arms."
***
Lowery; post-9/11
"America roused to a righteous anger has always been a force for good. States that have been supporting, if not Osama bin Laden, people like him, need to feel pain. If we flatten part of Damascus or Tehran or whatever it takes, that is part of the solution."
***
Lowery; Iraq invasion
"There is a connection between Iraq and Al-Qaeda. There is no division in the US government about this anymore. Everyone agrees there's 10 years' worth of contacts between Iraq and Al-Qaeda."

You see, nature has a way fixing things. It has a way of fixing the gap between what is just and unjust.
You cannot falsely justify or fabricate reasons to kill people by your police force without consequences.
You cannot cover up murders of opponents and outspoken civil rights advocates without consequences.

But now, an even more powerful force has entered into the fray thanks to the unbridled actions and failures of Albuquerque's leaders. Thanks to them, they have failed us. And now nature comes forward on March 30, 2014 to help make things right. The gap between what is just and unjust is about to brought to daylight.

Marion first learned his “Indian style” of warfare while fighting the Cherokees in the Southern theater of the French and Indian War (1756-1763). With American Independence in 1776, Marion was commissioned a major in the South Carolina militia.

During the next 2 ½ years Marion engaged in the devastating guerilla warfare that earned him the title of “Swamp Fox.” Although virtually in a sea of enemies, Marion and militia leaders Thomas Sumter and Andrew Pickens kept resistance alive in South Carolina until the Continental Army could recapture the region.

Nathan Bedford Forrest: American Warrior

Nathan Bedford Forrest, a name that struck dread to his enemies and which was revered by his men. He was arguably the greatest cavalryman during the War of Northern Aggression (or what is commonly known as America’s Civil War). There were many other notable cavalrymen, like the dashing J.E.B. Stuart, John Mosby, Wade Hampton, John Hunt Morgan and Robert E. Lee’s nephew, Fitzhugh Lee. On the Union side, George Armstrong Custer, the youngest Brigadier General, was a bold and often reckless cavalryman and John Buford, who probably saved the Union Army at Gettysburg. All were great horseman who feared no danger and did great service for their respective armies. However, Nathan Bedford Forrest stands alone.

Mosby's Rangers!

John Mosby summary: John S. Mosby was a Confederate cavalry commander. Known for his speed and elusiveness, he was given the nickname "Gray Ghost."

Since his men were not a traditional army unit, they could be called together to strike a selected target, then disperse afterward, making them hard to run to ground. This ability to strike quickly and then "disappear" gave rise to Mosby’s nickname, "Gray Ghost" (which was used as the title of a television series about him in 1957-58, starring Tod Andrews, and of a 1980s board game based on his exploits). Mosby himself, wearing a disguise, would often reconnoiter an area for a raid.

Roundup Causes Toxic Damage to Rat Brains

Previous studies demonstrate that glyphosate exposure is associated with oxidative damage and neurotoxicity. Therefore, the mechanism of glyphosate-induced neurotoxic effects needs to be determined. The aim of this study was to investigate whether Roundup® (a glyphosate-based herbicide) leads to neurotoxicity in hippocampus of immature rats following acute (30min) and chronic (pregnancy and lactation) pesticide exposure. Maternal exposure to pesticide was undertaken by treating dams orally with 1% Roundup® (0.38% glyphosate) during pregnancy and lactation (till 15-day-old).

Ex-TSA agent: We steal from travelers all the time

A TSA agent convicted of stealing more than $800,000 worth of goods from travelers said this type of theft is “commonplace” among airport security. Almost 400 TSA officers have been fired for stealing from passengers since 2003.

­Pythias Brown, a former Transportation Security Administration officer at Newark Liberty International Airport, spent four years stealing everything he could from luggage and security checkpoints, including clothing, laptops, cameras, Nintendo Wiis, video games and cash.

Speaking publicly for the first time after being released after three years in prison, Brown told ABC News that he used the X-ray scanners to locate the most valuable items to snatch.

NEW MEXICO CITIZENS LIVE IN FEAR OF THEIR POLICE

According to the battered wife of Deputy Scott Finley, a member of the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department’s elite Crime Suppression Unit, when she threatened to call 911 to report a vicious beating, her husband’s response was: “Go ahead and call. How can you break the law when you are the law?”

This corruption is in no way limited to cops on the street. It exists at management levels and extends to the very top echelons of New Mexico law enforcement:

v Lt. John B. Gallegos, supervisor of the APD Internal Affairs Unit, was caught burglarizing a liquor store while on duty.

v Deputy Darryl Burt, senior officer in the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department Gang Unit, was charged with kidnapping, criminal sexual penetration, and other felonies in connection with the traffic stop of a 24-yr-old male, as well as 34 counts of sexual assault and extortion of a 16-yr-old boy.

Video: Flashback - Glenn Beck Exposes the Private Fed; Gets Fired by Fox

Uploaded on Apr 8, 2011
I never liked Glenn Beck much, but it is quite a coincidence that he comes out with the real truth about the private Federal Reserve, and then loses his show on Fox News. Like Ron Paul always says, the Fed is the true facilitator of big government. They could never tax enough, or borrow enough to pay for the wars and corporate welfare without the printing press and world reserve currency status. Do your own research; read G. Edward Griffin's classic "The Creature from Jekyll Island." The creation of the Fed WAS A CONSPIRACY. No theorizing needed. Our forefathers fought since the founding to deny the bankers a monopoly over the control of currency and credit. We have fallen under the control of the banking establishment, and they have tied their fraudulent debt to the fiscal wellbeing of America.

We all got suckered into paying $160,000 we didn’t have for a piece of paper that entitles us to apply for a bunch of entry level jobs that don’t even want us on account of our lack of experience.

Entry level receptionist or social media position. 3-5 years experience required.

FBI Dumps Southern Poverty Law Center as Hate Crimes Resource

Signed by fourteen other conservative and Christian leaders, the letter calls SPLC "a heavily politicized organization producing inaccurate and biased data on 'hate groups' – not hate crimes." It accuses the SPLC of "providing findings that are not consistent with trends found in the FBI statistics." Where the FBI has found hate crimes and hate groups declining significantly in the past ten years, SPLC claims hate groups have increased 67.3% since 2000. Where once SPLC's hate list was reserved for groups like the Aryan Nation and the KKK, in 2010 SPLC started citing as hate groups those Christian groups that oppose same-sex marriage or believe homosexuality is not inborn, or are otherwise critical of homosexuality. Among the Christian groups targeted by SPLC was FRC.

If the Russians are able to invade Ukraine and consolidate their holdings, an invasion of Syria as a precursor to the invasion of Iran, can be seriously challenged by the Russians operating out of Crimea.”

I absolutely CANNOT stress enough how important the financial component is to understanding domestic or global politics right now. If you think it does not concern you, you are sorely mistaken. I include the links again below.

Noted cyber-group 'Anonymous' plans attack on APD websites

The international network of online activists known as "Anonymous" has announced their plans to launch a cyber attack on the Albuquerque Police Department's websites.

The announcement was released Wednesday on the group's YouTube channel. The group cites the recent shooting by APD of a man in the foothills and calls for citizens to organize and assist with the attack.

Police Involved Shooting Statistics: A National One-Year Summary

I collected this data myself because the U.S. Government doesn't. There is no national database dedicated to police involved shootings. Alan Maimon, in his article, "National Data on Shootings by Police Not Collected," published on November 28, 2011 in the "Las Vegas Review-Journal," wrote "The nation's leading law enforcement agency [FBI] collects vast amounts of information on crime nationwide, but missing from this clearinghouse are statistics on where, how often, and under what circumstances police use deadly force. In fact, no one anywhere comprehensively tracks the most significant act police can do in the line of duty: take a life."

Since the government keeps statistics on just about everything, why no national stats on something this important? The answer is simple: they don't want us to know. Why? Because police shoot a lot more people than we think, and the government, while good at statistics, is also good at secrecy.

Payments to Albuquerque Officers Are Called a ‘Bounty System’

Mike Gomez has been angry with the police officer here who shot and killed his 22-year-old son, Alan, last year, after officers responded to a report that the young man was acting erratically and firing a rifle. But Mr. Gomez became even angrier just days ago after he learned that the officer, Sean Wallace, received a $500 payment from the Albuquerque police union shortly after the shooting.

Social media: Weapon of PsyWar & you’re the target

For centuries the most powerful intelligence gathering service on the planet was the Catholic rite of ‘confession’, where millions of people told vital info to the Pope on guilty acts which could then be used to blackmail them and their co-sinners.

But you’d be wrong if you thought that was mostly over with Luther and the reformation. Priest-spooks of the new church at Google and Facebook took over where the confession box left off.

“Facebook have my life and I worry, ‘what will they do with it?’” a friend admitted to me this week. It’s a fair concern and one the software and social media giants have skirted round, paying their PR and legal departments to keep public debate to a minimum. Without a cast iron assurance that our data really is private we have to assume they hand everything to the NSA.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Using social media as an intelligence gathering tool seems silly when you recall just how many people are lying online, especially if they are trying to get a date.

Erdogan’s bluff and poker games

One week before the local elections in Turkey, March 30th, a Turkish F16 shot down a Syrian Mig 23 accusing the Syrian side of penetrating Turkish airspace while the Syrian jet came down in Syrian territory and, luckily, the surviving pilot clearly stated that he was shot down on the Syrian side of the border.
Even when hypothetically the Syrian jet crossed for seconds Turkish airspace the Turkish jets could easily escort him out as from a military point of view there is and was not a single reason to shoot the jet down.
So if there is no military reason, the hostile act of bringing a Syrian jet down must be looked at from a political angle.

Ukrainians are accustomed to buying gas at heavily subsidised rates.

IRS Makes Bitcoin Rules Simple for Wall Street, Impossible for Everyday Users

The IRS just issued tax guidance for bitcoin and other virtual currencies. They classify bitcoins as property, instead of a currency, where tax rules of stocks and barter will apply. It seems, as always, that Wall Street wins and people lose.

It essentially means Wall Street has a new asset class to exploit at low capital gains rates, and retail businesses get the benefit of low transaction fees of the Bitcoin payment system without extra accounting; but everyday people who use it as a currency must report every single transaction for tax collection.

Doin the Math…

According to General Motors, the Volt battery holds 16 kwh of electricity. It takes a full 10 hours to charge a drained battery. The cost for the electricity to charge the Volt is never mentioned so I looked up what I pay for electricity. I pay approximately (it varies with amount used and the seasons) $1.16 per kwh.

16 kwh x $1.16 per kwh = $18.56 to charge the battery. $18.56 per charge divided by 25 miles = $0.74 per mile to operate the Volt using the battery. Compare this to a similar size car with a gasoline engine that gets only 32 mpg. $3.19 per gallon divided by 32 mpg = $0.10 per mile. The gasoline powered car costs about $15,000 while the Volt costs $46,000.

So the Government wants us to pay 3 times as much, for a car that costs more than 7 times as much to run, and takes 3 times longer to drive across the country…..

White House offers extension on completing Obamacare enrollment

The Obama administration plans to allow consumers to complete enrollment for health insurance under Obamacare after next week's deadline as long as they declare that they started the process before the end of the month.

Webmaster's Commentary: 
Mar 26 08:47

Judging Obamacare state by state

Earlier this month the Department of Health and Human Services announced that more than five million people had selected plans on the public insurance exchanges, a sign that the pace of enrollments is quickening as the March 31 deadline for choosing a plan approaches. But a look at the exchanges during the last month of the sign-up period shows that the enrollment picture isn’t equal across the map. “A handful of states have done great,” says Katherine Hempstead, the senior program officer for the coverage team at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, a philanthropy dedicated to health care. “But there are some states that are really not getting much traction at all.”

Using Metadata to Catch a Whistleblower

So what did Stanford find among all that metadata? They began with some simple, common-sense assumptions, primarily that the more calls you made to a specific place (i.e., a political group or a friend) and the longer in duration those calls were, the more significant the connection. If that same source called you back, frequently or for long durations, the connection was more or less confirmed. Mistakes could be made, but there is always some collateral damage in these things.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is nonsense to trust the government's claim that they are only looking at the meta-data. The Utah data facility alone has enough storage to record every single phone call made by every single human on Earth for the last 7 years!

Ukrainian authorities to tame Eastern regions with aid of private military company

An overseas private military company will engages in the suppressing of protest moods of the mostly Russian-speaking population in the East of Ukraine, a source at the Security Service of Ukraine said Monday

“The case in hand is Greystone Ltd. company,” he said.

The incumbent authorities in Kiev that came to power as a result of a coup believe that the Security Service branches in the eastern regions are unable to suppress the protest moods and “to neutralize” the leaders and activists of the broad pro-Russian movement here.

Rep. Mike Rogers Is A Liar

Rep. Mike Rogers, one of the most doggedly pro-NSA figures in Congress, is once again making claims for which he presents zero evidence and which contradict findings from the intelligence community.
Specifically, he is going on television to claim Edward Snowden is a double agent for the Russians. “Every counterintelligence official believes that,” Mr. Rogers said on the NBC News program “Meet the Press.” “You won’t find one that doesn’t believe today he’s under the influence of Russian intelligence services.”

Actually, I know of one official who doesn’t believe Snowden is working with Russian intelligence services: Rick Ledgett, the guy who leads the NSA’s task force on Snowden’s leaks. That task force, according to a Reuters report, “found no evidence that [Snowden] had help either within the NSA or from adversary spy agencies.”

Although the bill is being sold by the Obama administration and establishment politicians in both parties as a positive step in protecting free speech, unfortunately the name of this bill is highly deceiving. Remembering just how unpatriotic the Patriot Act was, this new law, although deceivingly named, is likely to crush freedom of speech of any journalist not on a corporate payroll. According to the AP, this is how the bill defines who a real journalist is:

How Much Is NSA Spying Costing In Lost Productivity?

NSA spying is costing the U.S. tech industry tens of billions of dollars. And see this and this.

It also undermines trust in U.S. companies, fellow Americans and are government. Given that trust is the foundation for a prosperous economy, this is really bad for our economy.

But there might be another big cost to mass surveillance: loss of worker productivity.

Specifically, top computer and internet experts say that NSA spying breaks the functionality of our computers and of the Internet. It reduces functionality and reduces security by – for example – creating backdoors that malicious hackers can get through.

US Prepares To Provide A Billion To Ukraine As Detroit Plans Mass Water Shutoffs Over $260 Million

Either way, one thing is certain: in order to enforce the fading Pax Americana in the Ukraine, and to keep the funding to the otherwise insolvent Ukraine flowing, which as everyone knows will be first and foremost used to pay Russia's Gazprom, the US is about to send lots of money abroad. As in, not in the US.

So when it comes to priorities, whom does Putin have to thank for the billions in Western funds he is about to receive? Maybe he can start in Detroit, where the local utility is planning mass water shutoffs over $260M in delinquent bills.

As Reuters reports, the largely peaceful protest later marred by violent clashes in which police fired rubber bullets. The so-called "Dignity Marches" brought hundreds of thousands to the capital with banners making it clear what their feelings about record 26% unemployment were - "Bread, jobs and housing for everyone" and "Corruption and robbery, Spain's trademark." One protester summed up the people's views of the government, "I'm sick of this system they call democracy... I want things to change."

Family surprised to learn it was Toronto cops who broke into house, removed computers

When Nahid Alikhani and her sons came home on March 18, they found the front door jammed, muddy footprints throughout the house, their mail strewn about, doors ajar and all of their electronic devices missing.

Fearing a burglary, they called 9-1-1.

“The police said, ‘Actually it was us,’” said Alikhani.

That’s when they noticed the search warrant that had been left. It was for their Markham address, but none of their names were listed. Then Alikhani spotted a name she did recognize — the son of the home’s previous owner.

Their story highlights difficulties surrounding police investigations, and obtaining search warrants while protecting personal privacy when the person police are looking for are no longer at the home being searched.

The Toronto police say the family was the victim of a sophisticated crime ring busted this week and that proper procedure was followed in lawfully entering the home.

The family sees it differently.

Another stolen generation: how Australia still wrecks Aboriginal families

The tape is searing. There is the voice of an infant screaming as he is wrenched from his mother, who pleads, "There is nothing wrong with my baby. Why are you doing this to us? I would've been hung years ago, wouldn't I? Because [as an Aboriginal Australian] you're guilty before you're found innocent." The child's grandmother demands to know why "the stealing of our kids is happening all over again". A welfare official says, "I'm gunna take him, mate."

This happened to an Aboriginal family in outback New South Wales. It is happening across Australia in a scandalous and largely unrecognised abuse of human rights that evokes the infamous stolen generation of the last century. Up to the 1970s, thousands of mixed-race children were stolen from their mothers by welfare officials. The children were given to institutions as cheap or slave labour; many were abused.

Colorado House Passes Forced Vaccination Bill: One of 18 States Pushing Corporate Drugs

Parents will have little choice over whether or not to have their children vaccinated in Colorado now, due to a bipartisan measure passed by Colorado’s House Health, Insurance and Environment Committee this past Thursday. Parents who intended to claim the ‘opt out’ available in a current rendition of Colorado’s current law, due to religious or personal beliefs, will find it much more difficult to do so.

HB 14-1288, which gained traction after recent whooping cough outbreaks, will require parents to complete an online ‘education’ module and get the signature of their health care providers confirming that parents have been informed of health risks and a ‘possible detriment to the community’ if their children go unvaccinated.

The US empire, which might be more accurately termed the New World Order bankster empire, seems to be lashing out blindly as it enters its death spasms.

In Ukraine – as in Syria, Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere – the Empire's forces are in disarray. The loss of Crimea, and setbacks in Syria, are merely the latest of many debacles. The cause of this ongoing disaster: A series of self-inflicted wounds.

The worst wounds have been self-inflicted by the Empire's lunatic fringe: the Israel-centric neoconservatives. This group, which includes both Jewish chauvinists and Christian armageddonites, is burdened by fanatical devotion to an impossible project: The maintenance of a sustainable "Jewish state" in Occupied Palestine.

Child poverty rate in US is appalling

Nearly 25 percent of children in the US live in poverty. This is in stark contrast to other advanced countries, where the number is about 5 percent. This is tragic.

Other nations believe children are the hope for the future. They believe sensible government programs can have a positive effect on children and on society in general. Most provide early childhood development programs, including education and child care. They provide extended paid family leave. They have single-payer health care systems, which avoid expensive health insurance. They have extended unemployment safety nets. They believe in a sense of national community.

In this country, there is hate and suspicion of government, especially by far right Republicans. They believe food stamps and unemployment benefits will make people lazy. They refuse to consider raising the minimum wage. Many believe people are poor because God is punishing them.

Police in Albuquerque are facing intense criticism after video footage was released which appears to show officers using excessive force to apprehend a homeless man who was holding two knifes.

The NDAA: a clear and present danger to American liberty

Yes, the worst things you may have heard about the National Defense Authorization Act, which has formally ended 254 years of democracy in the United States of America, and driven a stake through the heart of the bill of rights, are all really true. The act passed with large margins in both the House and the Senate on the last day of last year – even as tens of thousands of Americans were frantically begging their representatives to secure Americans' habeas corpus rights in the final version.

As the New American website puts it,

"[S]ubsequent clauses (Section 1022, for example) unlawfully give the president the absolute and unquestionable authority to deploy the armed forces of the United States to apprehend and to indefinitely detain those suspected of threatening the security of the 'homeland'. In the language of this legislation, these people are called 'covered persons'.

ALL WARS ARE BANKERS' WARS!

The so-called "clash of civilizations" we read about on the corporate media is really a war between banking systems, with the private central bankers forcing themselves onto the rest of the world, no matter how many millions must die for it. Indeed the constant hatemongering against Muslims lies in a simple fact. Like the ancient Christians (prior to the Knights Templars private banking system) , Muslims forbid usury, or the lending of money at interest. And that is the reason our government and media insist they must be killed or converted. They refuse to submit to currencies issued at interest. They refuse to be debt slaves.

So off to war your children must go, to spill their blood for the money-junkies' gold. We barely survived the last two world wars. In the nuclear/bioweapon age, are the private central bankers willing to risk incinerating the whole planet just to feed their greed?

Apparently so.

When Wall Street's mortgage-backed securities fraud collapsed in 2008, the US Government's "solution" was to take trillions away from the American people and pour it all over the Wall Streets crooks who created the mess in the first place. Needless to say, this fits the classic definition of fascism.

Now, imagine if the US Government had instead moved the money the other direction, away from the Wall Street crooks (as punishment for their crimes) and sent it back to the American people, nobody would have missed a mortgager payment; there would not be a real-estate crisis. Everyone would be current on their credit cards, and there would not be a credit crunch. Everyone would have gone to the shopping mall every Christmas and bought lots of goodies, so there would not have been a retail and employment crisis. This policy of "rob the poor to give to the rich" was exactly the wrong thing to do, but DC did it anyway in their obedience to the money-junkies.

"Do What You Gotta Do": Cop Shows Bolster Idea That Police Violence Works

Within a minute and a half of the first episode, the show has summed up its central message: Police violence works. This is relayed again and again throughout the series: When a cop with a chain-wrapped fist savagely beats a Spanish-speaking suspect demanding an attorney until he relinquishes a tip; when officers debase the idea of policing without intent to arrest; when cops round up black non-criminals and deliver them to precinct torture chambers. In every episode, these methods achieve the desired ends. The message: Police violence works.

Crime’s Down, So Why is Police Aggression Increasing?

You might not know it from watching TV news, but FBI statistics show that crime in the U.S.—including violent crime—has been trending steadily downward for years, falling 19% between 1987 and 2011. The job of being a police officer has become safer too, as the number of police killed by gunfire plunged to 33 last year, down 50% from 2012, to its lowest level since, wait for it,1887, a time when the population was 75% lower than it is today.

So why are we seeing an ever increasing militarization of policing across the country?

The knowledge gained on this program will help their departments keep citizens safer and ensure that American communities are better prepared to deal with the realities of terrorism.

Israel’s export of occupation police tactics

Israel’s specialized policing and fighting capacity, which it is currently exporting to other countries, including the US, began to take shape after the June 1967 Arab-Israeli war. In the territories it occupied during the conflict, especially the Palestinian West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza Strip, the Israeli government wanted to lay claim, permanently, to specific parts of the occupied area. This desire ran into Zionism’s longest-running problem, the presence of Palestinians. As Zionist leader Ze’ev Jabotinsky wrote in 1923 about indigenous resistance to colonial projects, “The native populations … have always stubbornly resisted the colonists.”

This resistance would have to be suppressed and the population pacified if the occupation of these lands was to be sustainable. Thus began an evolutionary relationship that continues to this day, that of the Palestinian resistance versus Israel’s policy of permanent occupation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, in light of the epidemic of police violence against citizens, the product of this Israeli training, it seems the US is already Israeli-occupied territory!

Press TV: Tragedy of US police training by Israeli companies

During the Bush administration, Israeli-American dual citizen and Director of Homeland Security Chertoff mandated that American police forces be trained by Israeli groups in crowd control, counter-terrorism and intelligence gathering.

Since that time, shootings of unarmed civilians has gone up 500%, attacks on legal political protests by police have become a scandal and huge stockpiles of ammunition and military heavy weaponry have been distributed to law enforcement groups in every region of America, both local and federally controlled.

Obamacare brings big fees for drugs: ‘Where’s the affordable with this one?’

Mason is one of the many Americans with serious illnesses — including cancer, multiple sclerosis and rheumatoid arthritis — who are indeed finding relatively low monthly premiums under President Obama’s law. But some have been shocked at how much their prescriptions are costing as insurers are sorting drug prices into a complex tier system and in some cases charging co-insurance rates as high as 50 percent. That can leave patients on the hook for thousands.

Clashes as Spanish anti-austerity rally draws to close

The "March for Dignity" rally was held with the slogan "Bread, work and a roof for each and everyone," in opposition to cuts introduced by the ruling center-right People's Party.

"They are causing suffering, poverty, hunger and even deaths, and all so that banks and the economic powers can hold onto their great benefits at the expense of our lives," read one statement from the protesters.

As the speech took place, a group of protesters was reported to have tried to break through police barriers to gain access to the headquarters of the party. Riot police were said to have charged the protesters, who then threw bottles and other objects.

Police said that six officers were injured and 12 people arrested.

Administration Plays to Young in Health Push

From January until the end of March, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, which runs the HealthCare.gov site and administers the Affordable Care Act, will have spent $52 million on paid media, officials said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Most young people rarely need health insurance. Under Obamacare, the insurance is costly and has deductibles so high that even if you purchase a policy you are not likely to receive any benefit from it at all. No matter how much advertising you do, young people understand it is simply a bad deal for them, especially as they struggle to pay their student loans with minimum-wage jobs.

Oklahoma Cop Shoots, Kills Family Dog, Says it Was ‘Awesome’

“Did you see her collar fly off when I shot her? That was awesome,” Brown claims Woolly bragged to the responding animal control officer, who supposedly replied, “We’ll just write in the report that it tried to attack you and others in the neighborhood.”

Sgt. Woolly has a checkered past with the department. Woolly’s name last year appeared in a complaint lodged by one of his fellow officers, who claimed he suffered “intentional infliction of emotional distress,” among other trauma, at the hands of the department.

Last year, Woolly was also specifically named in a complaint by an Ardmore citizen accusing him of multiple violations, including conducting a warrantless entry and search of the citizen’s home.

“Fuck you bitch! What do you think about this? I hope you enjoy jail bitch. I’ve finally got you on something and you’re going back to prison,” Woolly is reported to have told the person.

Autopsy shows Clinton man was shot by deputies seven times, then handcuffed

Mah-hi-vist Goodblanket, 18, had gunshot wounds on his head, chest, abdomen and right arm, according to a report by the office of the chief medical examiner. All the bullets recovered were similar .45-caliber hollow-point. His death was ruled a homicide.

Custer County District Attorney Dennis Smith said his office will announce its decision on whether the shooting was justified in a week to 10 days.

Goodblanket was handcuffed at the time of the autopsy. Custer County Sheriff Bruce Peoples said even though Goodblanket had been shot, it was necessary and consistent with law enforcement procedure to place handcuffs on him to secure the scene.

“You always handcuff a suspect immediately after an event like that,” he said.

Autopsy shows Texas cop fired fatal shot from close range into sarcastic student’s back

A Texas college student likely died from a gunshot wound to his back after making a sarcastic remark to the campus police officer who killed him.

Autopsy results show 23-year-old Cameron Redus was shot five times at close range by Cpl. Christopher Carter, a University of Incarnate Word police officer, during an early morning Dec. 6 traffic stop near the San Antonio campus.

While the locations of the five shots had been previously known, autopsy results released Thursday to the TV news station revealed new details.

“We are stunned to learn that Cameron was shot in the back from very close range,” the student’s family said in a statement. “The report also shows that the shot to his eye was delivered at a downward angle, again from very close range. That knowledge coupled with information from the earlier police report indicating that Cameron died on his back with his legs underneath him has left us heartbroken and shaken to the core.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, this is how Texas cops interpret the phrase "to protect and serve" these days: shooting students in the back for a sarcastic remark, when they have done, nor threatened, harm.

As Wells Fargo is Accused of Fabricating Foreclosure Papers, Will Banks Keep Escaping Prosecution?

A new internal report says the Justice Department massively overstated its successes in targeting mortgage fraud while in fact ranking it as a low priority for investigation. The Justice Department’s inspector general says despite playing a central role in the nation’s financial crisis, mortgage fraud was deemed either a low priority or not a priority at all. This comes as a recently revealed internal Wells Fargo document appears to guide lawyers step by step on how to fabricate missing documents to foreclose on homeowners. Wells Fargo is the country’s largest mortgage servicer and services some nine million home loans.

Site Cleared Of Homes By Eminent Domain Remains Empty Eight Years Later

It has been a little over eight years since the U.S. Supreme Court decided that homeowners in New London, Conn., had no property rights. In 2005 residents in the Fort Trumbull neighborhood of New London were told they had to abandon their homes so the city’s government could demolish them and hand the property over to developers to build hotels, health clubs and new condominiums.

In 2005, the pharmaceutical company, Pfizer, wanted the city to clear the land because the company had recently built a new research facility in New London. Stating that they didn’t want the new facility in a blighted neighborhood they asked the city to raze the homes on the waterfront of the Thames River so new amenities could be built. Believing that such a move would be good for economic development, city officials agreed.

“Pfizer wants a nice place to operate,” one Pfizer executive said at the time. “We don’t want to be surrounded by tenements.”

Official: Taos Ski Valley raid not result of ticket quota

Some in Taos are livid after they say Forest Service Officers showed up to the Ski Valley wearing SWAT gear and began searching cars and handing out citations.

“I could not be more upset about this,” said former Gov. Gary Johnson, who is also a resident of Taos. “I could not be more upset. Somebody needs to lose their job.”

The act is called a Saturation Patrol, and it was performed recently at Taos Ski Valley by four National Forest Police officers and a drug-sniffing dog. The quartet began citing people for possessing marijuana, driving recklessly and having cracked windshields.

“This is a total waste of taxpayer dollars,” said Johnson. “We're U.S. taxpayers. We own the forest service. Why are we subject to this? Why? I want to know.”

‘Most transparent’ White House ever rewrote the FOIA to suppress politically sensitive docs

It’s Sunshine Week, so perhaps some enterprising White House reporter will ask press secretary Jay Carney why President Obama rewrote the Freedom of Information Act without telling the rest of America.

The rewrite came in an April 15, 2009, memo from then-White House Counsel Greg Craig instructing the executive branch to let White House officials review any documents sought by FOIA requestors that involved “White House equities.”

That phrase is nowhere to be found in the FOIA, yet the Obama White House effectively amended the law to create a new exception to justify keeping public documents locked away from the public.

He found that out just minutes before receiving life-saving chemo," says the local reporter.

The pastor says, "One of the workers came and said let me talk to you. And so I went to talk to her. She says that we found out that your insurance does not include chemo."

"Over the past two months, the Angrans have emptied their savings account and racked up $50,000 in debt. They signed up for the Affordable Care Act," says the local reporter, "but found it to be anything but affordable. It will cost the couple more than $800 per month, money they just don't have."

The newest Obamacare promotion has the official White House website imitating a March Madness-style bracket featuring gifs of twerking girls, cats and “YOLO” to convince coveted young millennials to sign up.

While President Obama’s campaigns were noted for their successful youth outreach, he has been unable to attract young people to sign up for insurance under Obamacare so far.

News Corp. Paper Hacked Phones on Industrial Scale, Goodman Says

News Corp. (NWSA)’s News of the World tabloid hacked phones on an “industrial scale,” according to a former reporter who was sent to prison for the crime in 2007.

Clive Goodman, the News of the World’s former royal reporter, told a London court today that he discussed monitoring mobile phones with his editor, Andy Coulson, as far back as 2005. Goodman said he showed a transcript of a voice mail left by Prince Harry on a royal aide’s phone to Coulson.

Goodman and Coulson are among seven people standing trial on charges related to phone hacking and bribing public officials at the New York-based company’s U.K. newspapers. Goodman, 56, is one of two people who pleaded guilty to hacking phones in 2006 when the allegations first emerged at News Corp.

Israel's War on American Universities

“To prohibit students from holding leadership roles and student groups simply because they engaged in a peaceful political protest is antithetical to the university’s mission to educate students,” he said. “It erases any pedagogical value disciplinary process might seek.”

“In the last year,” Geller went on, “I have received death threats, been publicly and unfairly maligned, and have been threatened with disciplinary measures. This has made engaging in speech about an issue about which I care deeply, both as a Jew and an American, a fear- and anxiety-causing prospect.”

Israel’s heavy-handed reaction to these campus organizations is symptomatic of its increasing isolation and concern about waning American support.

And some rank-and-file officers are worried the technology might ultimately be used to derail their careers if, for example, an errant comment about a superior is captured on tape.

Now you know how we feel about the cameras directed at US!

Obama’s Opaque Sense Of Transparency: AP Report Documents Obama Administration’s Record Secrecy and Denial Of Access To Documents

Remember that politician around 8 years ago who promised the most transparent Administration ever? Well, long ago, President Obama distinguished himself by withholding documents, pictures, and documents from the public and Congress. This includes the withholding of photos for the simple reason that they will embarrass the government or be used by critics like the pictures of Osama Bin Laden. (In the case of Bin Laden, it appears that the account glamorized in movies like Zero Dark Thirty may not be true and that U.S. forces allegedly riddled the body of Bin Laden with countless bullets, according to a new report). However, the Administration has gone well beyond the simply embarrassing. It has defied Congress in refusing to turn over documents to oversight committees, prompting a vote to demand that Attorney General Eric Holder be prosecuted for obstruction. (The Administration then prevented prosecutors from acting on the charge).

25 Fast Facts About The Federal Reserve – Please Share With Everyone You Know

#1 The greatest period of economic growth in U.S. history was when there was no central bank.

#2 The United States never had a persistent, ongoing problem with inflation until the Federal Reserve was created. In the century before the Federal Reserve was created, the average annual rate of inflation was about half a percent. In the century since the Federal Reserve was created, the average annual rate of inflation has been about 3.5 percent, and it would be even higher than that if the inflation numbers were not being so grossly manipulated.

#3 Even using the official numbers, the value of the U.S. dollar has declined by more than 95 percent since the Federal Reserve was created nearly 100 years ago.

Against Ukraine War? Obama May Seize Your Assets

Do you, like 56 percent of the US population, believe that the US should “not get too involved” in the Ukraine situation? Do you think that the US administration putting us on a war footing with Russia is a bad idea? Are you concerned that the new, US-backed leaders of Ukraine — not being elected — might lack democratic legitimacy? Are you tempted to speak out against US policy in Ukraine; are you tempted to criticize the new Ukrainian regime?

Be careful what you say. Be careful what you write. President Obama has just given himself the authority to seize your assets.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Under the First Amendment, We The People have a right to speak our disapproval of US Government policy. Obama's Executive Order is not only exceeding his lawful authority, it is a crime against the Constitution, justifying his removal from office!

TIGTA: The IRS Does Not Follow the Law in 48% of Taxpayer Bankruptcy Cases

Impact on Taxpayers
The bankruptcy automatic stay provision prohibits the IRS from taking certain collection actions against a debtor (taxpayer) as soon as it learns, or is notified by a U.S. bankruptcy court, that a bankruptcy petition has been filed. Similarly, the debtor may be granted a discharge, which remains after the case is closed and is a permanent injunction order prohibiting the IRS from taking any form of collection action against the debtor personally with respect to discharged debts. If the IRS does not observe the automatic stay or the discharge injunction, taxpayers’ rights could potentially be violated and the IRS could be sued for damages.
