Obama lawyers asked secret court to ignore public court's decision on spying

The Obama administration has asked a secret surveillance court to ignore a federal court that found bulk surveillance illegal and to once again grant the National Security Agency the power to collect the phone records of millions of Americans for six months.

The legal request, filed nearly four hours after Barack Obama vowed to sign a new law banning precisely the bulk collection he asks the secret court to approve, also suggests that the administration may not necessarily comply with any potential court order demanding that the collection stop.

Snowden leaks confirm: CISA is a surveillance bill

Based on the facts, CISA will clearly fail to meaningfully improve cybersecurity while providing dangerous new Internet surveillance powers to the NSA.

If these facts are clearly articulated, the American people are unlikely to support such a measure. Unfortunately, the powers of surveillance understand this as well. They will attempt to downplay these revelations, stir up anxieties about imagined threats, or even go so far as to misleadingly argue that last week’s events actually support the need for CISA.

The task for advocates of strong privacy and cybersecurity is to ensure that the truth wins out.

LBJ Ordered the Death of US Servicemen

The USS Liberty murders are arguably Lyndon Johnson’s greatest crime if one does not include deceiving and dragging America into the horrors of the Vietnam War where millions perished.

The USS Liberty event is one of the most important and also one of the highly suppressed events in modern American history.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am no fan of Johnson, but let us be accurate. The original plotters of the JFK assassination had laid a trail of false evidence to link Oswald to Cuba, and intended to blame Castro for the assassination, to build public support for a new invasion of Cuba. Johnson was aware of Khrushchev's warning following the Cuban Missile Crisis that if the US invaded again, Russia would launch a nuclear attack on the US. So Johnson ordered the Warren Commission to claim Oswald was a "crazed lone nut" to kill the Cuba link and bought off the military industrial complex by giving them Vietnam to play around in instead of Cuba. Oliver Stone never made that connection in his film JFK.

REPORT: HUNDREDS OF WOMEN & CHILDREN FORCED INTO SEX BY UNITED NATIONS “PEACEKEEPERS”

This week, a report from the UN Office of Internal Oversight Services (OIOS), indicated that “peacekeepers” working in Haiti were guilty of raping Haitian women at an alarming rate. The report also indicated that a large number of the victims were underage. According to the report, there were 231 people in Haiti who claimed they were sexually violated by UN peacekeepers, and were forced to perform sexual acts in exchange for food and supplies that were intended as relief packages.

Guess How Many Nations In The World Do Not Have A Central Bank?

Central banking has truly taken over the entire planet. At this point, the only major nation on the globe that does not have a central bank is North Korea. Yes, there are some small island countries such as the Federated States of Micronesia that do not have a central bank, but even if you count them, more than 99.9% of the population of the world still lives in a country that has a central bank.

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

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.

You are taught not to murder, yet government reserves to itself the right to murder, obfuscating the killing with words like capital punishment, assassination, terminate with extreme prejudice, and in the extreme, war.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I decided it was time for a repost based on a reader email about how shocked they are that government lies to us on such a grand scale.

Are We Being Driven Like Cattle?

As we stand in line for security checks at airports, we may have the distinct feeling that we are being herded like cattle. Air travel has changed, and has become much less pleasant, since the fear of terrorism replaced the fear of communism as the excuse that governments give for diverting colossal sums of money from desperately needed social goals to the bottomless pit of war. Innocent grandmothers, and their grandchildren, are required to remove their shoes and belts. Everyone is treated like a criminal. It is a humiliating experience. We may well feel like dumb driven cattle; and the purpose of the charade is not so much to prevent airliners from being sabotaged as it is to keep the idea of terrorism fresh in our minds.

Free Speech: R.I.P.

If an argument cannot stand the test of being pushed to an “extreme,” then it is not valid in the least-extreme scenario either. Today’s anti-free-speech radicals have a closed mind when it comes to hearing extreme cases, because extreme cases highlight logic. Thus, the only way they can protect their positions is to silence those who speak out against them.

Disgusting!! Anti-Russian propaganda appearing in Dutch school textbooks

The following two images were found on page 67 of the workbook, Chapter 7: countries without democracy. The first image shows Russia as the 'evil' country trying to take Ukraine, while Europe is pictured lending a 'helping' hand. One of the questions students are asked, is: "What is Russia doing, and what is Europe doing in this picture?" Well, that isn't difficult to answer: Evil-looking Russia is obviously trying to devour poor Ukraine, while friendly Europe is looking on concerned!

The passage of appropriations bills is a seemingly casual process in which any legislator can attempt to hitch his or her hobbyhorse to it as it makes its way slowly to a vote. (And then to a government shutdown.) “Rob Peter/Pay Paul” amendments are offered for quick floor votes, adding millions to one program while siphoning the equivalent amount from another. Other amendments are simply of the “Rob Peter” variety, in which funding is stripped from programs or activities a legislator doesn’t agree with.

Obama blasts Supreme Court for accepting challenge to health care law

President Obama assaulted the nation's top court and seemed to criticize the U.S. legal system as a whole Monday, with the former constitutional law professor declaring that the Supreme Court was wrong to even accept a challenge to his signature health care reform law and deriding the fact that an “individual district court judge” was able to derail his deportation amnesty.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obama's getting too big for his britches! He seems to forget that as the head of the Executive Branch, his job is to execute the will of the Congress, but only after the Supreme Court verifies the Constitutionality of the law. The President presides, he does not dictate. Obama has forgotten that simple rule.

German Television Exposes Holocaust Lies: Historic Broadcast Shocks Germany


In one of the most amazing events to occur in occupied Germany since the second world war Historian Ursula Haverbeck made history in a defiant interview in which she openly trashed the very basis of the lie upon which all modern European social democratic states have been built. The elderly historian, brought into question the moral integrity of all Western political parties and academic institutions, exposing the official account of the second world war and the Holocaust for the lie it was on a television station which is the second largest in the world after Britain’s BBC.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Immediately afterwards, the German police kicked down Ursula's door and arrested her.

Carbon Credits: The Future World Currency

You know, those predatory loans globalists offer 3rd world countries knowing they will never be able to produce a high enough GDP to even service the interest on the debt, let alone the principle? Then just like with every other situation in regards to this scam, once they fail to pay back the loans, the IMF and World Bank take control of all the resources and production, and give it back to industrialized countries’ corporate entities.

Finally, as a solution, a conference or summit is formed, usually by none other than, the U.N. The conference is held and blame is put on the super powers for the “rise” in greenhouse gasses and ocean temperatures.

The solution? Implement one of two options, or possibly a mix of the two.

Washington’s Death Squads

In a lengthy article published Sunday, the New York Times provided a glimpse into the criminal and grisly methods employed by Seal Team 6, a secret unit within the Pentagon’s Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC).

The unit was made famous by the phony accounts of its assassination of Osama bin Laden in Pakistan, cover stories that were blown last month by veteran journalist Seymour Hersh, who exposed the operation as the cold-blooded murder of an unarmed and decrepit individual who had been fingered by Pakistani intelligence.

What the Times account makes clear—whatever the newspaper’s intentions and its undoubted vetting of its material with the Pentagon and the White House—is that in the pursuit of its global interests, the United States government has become ever more dependent upon the murderous operations of secret death squads.

5 Ways Powerful People Trick You Into Hating Underdogs

Let's say that tomorrow you are elected Secret Ruler of the USA, a position that gives you total power over the government, economy, and the culture at large -- everything that hippies refer to as "the system." Now, your first job is to not get beheaded by rioting peasants, which means your first job is really to maintain "stability" (i.e., "keeping things mostly the way they are").

Immediately you'll find that you're facing a never-ending stream of protests from disgruntled groups who say they're being treated unfairly or otherwise getting left out -- this group over here is upset that somebody got abused by the police; this other bunch is demanding better wages or something. How do you handle it? Sure, you could crush their movements with an iron fist, using violence to kill, intimidate or arrest their most vocal members. But that can backfire, often turning them into martyrs and proving them right in the process -- you've seen Star Wars; somebody always finds the exhaust port.

The above video contains actual footage which the Free Thought Project secured from the department of Defense, of the exercises.

Unlike in the recent special forces exercise that just occurred in Michigan, using live ordinance at an abandoned public school, this exercise took place at the Muscatatuck Urban Training Center.

Who shot who in Waco biker bloodbath? Mystery as witnesses say semi-automatic guns favored by POLICE did most of the shooting in contested accounts of battle

Six witnesses have described a melee that began with a few pistol shots but was dominated by semi-automatic gunfire.

Waco police have said they returned fire after being shot at, and call the witnesses' depictions of events incorrect.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The only ones at the scene with semi-automatic assault rifles were the police. Only one such weapon was confiscated from the victims and that was found in the locked trunk of a car after the shooting was over. This is starting to look like a repeat of the shootout at the Empire State Building in which 9 bystanders were shot ... all by the NYPD!

HSBC TO FIRE 50,000, ONE IN FIVE JOBS, TO FUND DIVIDENDS TO SHAREHOLDERS

Just days after JPMorgan revealed it would fire another 5,000 by the end of the year in a "scalpel" headcount reduction, overnight the world's favorite drug money laundering bank HSBC unleashed the "machete" and announced it would cut almost 50,000 workers, or one in five bankers, a move which would shrink the investment bank division by one-third. The reason: the same why US corporations are laying off tens of thousands so they can fund record stock buybacks and enrich their shareholders - to boost profits so that more money can be channeled in the form of dividends.

Why Is The EU Forcing European Nations To Adopt ‘Bail-In’ Legislation By The End Of The Summer?

Are they expecting something to happen? As you will read about below, the European Union says that any nation within the EU that does not enact “bail-in” legislation within the next two months will face legal action. The countries that are being threatened in this manner include Italy and France. If you fast forward two months from this moment, that puts us in early August. So clearly the European Union wants everything to be squared away by the end of the summer. Is there a reason for this? Are they anticipating that something really bad will happen in September or thereafter? Why such a rush?

We all remember what happened when major banks were “bailed out” during the last financial crisis. A tremendous amount of taxpayer money was given to the big banks to help prop them up so they wouldn’t fail. This greatly upset a lot of people.

Say what? While this sort of prosecution is common in parts of Europe, Americans enjoy the protection of the First Amendment, which contains no exception for what's colloquially known as "hate speech." The only permitted exceptions to free speech protections—as the Supreme Court recently re-articulated—are for obscenity, defamation, fraud, incitement, and "speech integral to criminal conduct."

Obama says Supreme Court should never have taken up health law case, in blunt challenge

President Obama bluntly challenged the Supreme Court over a pending ruling on the validity of ObamaCare subsidies, complaining Monday that the court should never have taken up the case -- and warning that a ruling against subsidies would be a "twisted interpretation" of the law.

The president and his administration's legal team for months have fought the Affordable Care Act court challenge, which is over whether people who enrolled through the federal HealthCare.gov are entitled to subsidies.

But the president's comments on Monday, during a press conference on the sidelines of the G-7 summit in Germany, were perhaps his toughest to date. He strongly suggested the court would be running afoul of established legal guidance if it rules against the administration, and took the rare step of saying the court should have stayed out of this fight.

Cameron trips up over Europe at G7 summit, denies U-turn

British Prime Minister David Cameron tripped up over Europe at a summit of the Group of Seven Industrial nations (G7), appearing to issue an ultimatum to his own ministers over the EU only to swiftly withdraw it, saying he had been misunderstood.

The debacle was Cameron's first serious setback since he was re-elected a month ago and was all the more awkward because it concerned his flagship policy of renegotiating Britain's EU ties before holding an in-out EU membership referendum.

His uncertain handling of such an important issue is likely to be interpreted as a sign of how nervous he is to keep his fractious Conservative Party united to avoid a re-run of past splits which helped topple his two immediate predecessors.

BALTIMORE MAN WHO FILMED FREDDIE GRAY ARREST NOW CHARGED WITH ‘INCITING A RIOT’

Charged with “terrorism” and “inciting a riot” as backlash for filming the police?

That certainly seems to be the case.Back in April, Counter Current News broke the story on Kevin Moore’s arrest before he had been processed. Working closely with activists on the ground in Baltimore, we were informed of the arrest on trumped up charges right as it happened. We have been following the story since then, and some of the latest developments continue to disturb and concern us, and they should concern you too.

Why should you be concerned? Kevin Moore, the man who filmed the now infamous Freddie Gray arrest, just before police apparently killed the Baltimore resident in the back of a police van, was harassed continuously after he filmed the police. Following that harassment, he was arrested and charged with such outlandish crimes as “terrorism” and “inciting a riot” as well as “evading police,” “driving with no license,” and an open container charge.

Secret Directive 11 codifies Islamists takeover of ME, Muslim Brotherhood Alliance with Obama

Directive 11 brought together activists and operatives at multiple agencies to come up with a “tailored” approach for regime change in each country. The goal was to “manage” the political transitions. It tossed aside American national security interests by insisting that Islamist regimes would be equally committed to fighting terrorism and cooperating with Israel. Its greatest gymnastic feat may have been arguing that the best way to achieve political stability in the region was through regime change.

What little we know about the resulting classified 18-page report is that it used euphemisms to call for aiding Islamist takeovers in parts of the Middle East. Four countries were targeted. Of those four, we only know for certain that Egypt and Yemen were on the list. But we do know for certain the outcome.

Meanwhile, ISIS has been found across the border in Mexico.

Owner of house blown apart by SWAT says: 'This is an abomination. This is an atrocity'

"In any civilized nation ... this is the act of paramilitary thugs," he says he told the chief of the Greenwood Village Police Department.

The damage was inflicted by police and SWAT officers who were working to capture Robert Jonathan Seacat, a suspected 33-year-old shoplifter who allegedly barged into a random home Wednesday afternoon, and opened fire on police when they tried to arrest him a short time later.

A neighbor, who says the SWAT team used his home as a base of operations, points out that whatever the police used to blast the holes sent debris flying.

"When they used the explosives to blow apart the side of this house here, they broke our windshield," the neighbor said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Welcome to Amerika, friends, where your home can be completely destroyed in police pursuit of a total stranger.

I have to wonder how soon insurance companies are going to be offering "property devastation insurance" against this kind of wanton destruction.

Are Police Now Behaving Like Intelligence Agencies?

The overreaching surveillance state in the U.S. certainly takes most of the headlines, but the UK is every bit on par if not worse. A recent report, responded to below by Steve Jolly of NOCCTV, indicates that there have been 700,000 police requests to access private communications in the UK over a two-year period - which amounts to a request every 2 minutes. And these requests are almost never denied; in fact, they have a 96% approval rate. This surely can't purely be to "thwart terrorism."

Meet David Joseph Lenio, the 9/11 Truther/Holocaust Denier being Prosecuted in Montana for 'Criminal Defamation' of Jews

Three days after a brief contentious Twitter exchange with a pro-Israeli lawyer, Montana prosecutors filed two felony criminal charges against David Joseph Lenio. COUNT I: INTIMIDATION, & COUNT II: CRIMINAL DEFAMATION. There is much more to this story than meets the eye. I wanted to look into Lenio's beliefs and positions, and that data is included on this page. Despite hysterical blogs claiming he's being prosecuting for simply denying to holocaust, there is more to it than that. A closer examination of Lenio, the accusations, and the charges is in order.

Police clash with demonstrators at G7 protest

Around 4000 people have staged largely peaceful protests under a heavy police presence near the venue for the G7 summit in southern Germany.

Police reported isolated incidents on Saturday and in one case deployed pepper spray to disperse protesters but the demonstration in the city of Garmisch-Partenkirchen was noisy but mainly good-natured.

There were seven police injuries as some protesters hurled bottles, authorities said.

National Debt – Or 1 is Too Many and 12 are Not Enough

The increase in US national debt was $421 Billion between October 2001 and October 2002, but the debt increased by $1.89 Trillion between October 2008 and October 2009. A $100 Billion deficit was too much spending to maintain a stable currency, but after traveling down the dangerous road of deficit spending, over $1 Trillion in excess spending was not enough to stimulate the economy back to health.

Global debt has been reported at $200 Trillion, having increased $57 Trillion in the last 8 years, yet economies are still weak in Japan, Europe, the UK, and the US. If global central bankers and governments had wanted sound financial systems, they would not have traveled down the dangerous road of ever increasing debt, monetizing bonds, ZIRP (zero interest rate program), negative interest rates in Europe, and more. One trillion dollars in debt was far too much, but in our “Financial Twilight Zone” world, $200 Trillion is not enough.

Berners-Lee Urges Britons To Fight The Snooper's Charter, But For One UK Tech Company It's Too Late

The economic argument that online businesses need an environment in which privacy is respected, is probably one of the few that David Cameron might listen to. As Berners-Lee notes, if a tech startup can't promise potential users basic protection for their personal data, then its product is seriously hobbled before it's even launched. That means that once the Snooper's Charter is in place -- assuming there is no rebellion by freedom-loving Conservative MPs when it comes to the vote -- people will think twice about choosing the UK as the base for a new tech company. In fact, people have already started leaving because of what the Snooper's Charter will do to their businesses.

Top FBI Official Says Tech Companies Need To 'Prevent Encryption Above All Else'

Usually, when we see clueless government lackeys discussing the need to backdoor encryption, they at least admit upfront that they think encryption is important in protecting private information. Even that nutty rambling speech by Homeland Security Appropriations chair Rep. John Carter recognized that there were important reasons to use encryption to protect privacy. And FBI boss James Comey usually does some hand waving to that effect as well. But apparently he forgot to tell one of his deputies.

While testifying before Congress, Michael Steinbach, assistant director in the FBI's Counterterrorism Division, just went to the levels of pure insanity, in arguing that above all else companies should work to prevent encryption. This was during a ridiculous grandstanding hearing held by the House Homeland Security Committee entitled "Terrorism Gone Viral", and Steinbach didn't waste the opportunity to make a ridiculously viral comment of his own.

ICH BIN URSULA - Ursula's Message in English


Ursula Haverbeck wants an answer to a simple question. Following the events in Paris, the Je Suis Charlie campaign called for the protection and promotion of freedom of opinion and speech. In the same spirit, Ursula Haverbeck points out that with mainstream historical authorities now accepting that Auschwitz was not the scene of the murder of millions of Jews in homicidal gas chambers, there is no established "scene of the crime". She has challenged official bodies including ministers of the various German states to provide an answer – to define the scene of the crime. They have so far failed to do so, and she must therefore conclude that there is no substantiation to the official history of Auschwitz.

Zorich was subsequently taken into custody at the police station. When she was finally let go and allowed to return to her home, she found to be completely trashed. Beds had been overturned, and items that were once on shelves had been thrown to the floor.

The citations issued to Zorich, which had allegedly justified the heavily militarized raid on her home, were for substandard siding, guard rail, screens, window glass and deck.

A dozen armed men dressed for war, were dispatched to a woman’s home, killed her dog, and kidnapped her because of some moldy wood and her inability to pay her gas bill.

The countries that are being threatened in this manner include Italy and France. If you fast forward two months from this moment, that puts us in early August. So clearly the European Union wants everything to be squared away by the end of the summer. Is there a reason for this? Are they anticipating that something really bad will happen in September or thereafter? Why such a rush?

The death of a 21-year-old computer science student in police custody has been ruled a homicide from blunt force trauma and has resulted in the termination of nine deputies who strapped him to a restraining chair on New Year’s Day and allegedly beat him to death. Although the county attorney’s office initially claimed that the deputies were fired last month for general policy violations, the coroner confirmed on Thursday that the deputies lost their jobs on the same day that he signed the student’s death certificate. The student’s family only became aware of the death certificate’s existence after a photograph of the document was leaked on social media.

Fines For Homeless Scrapped By Hackney Council After Public Backlash

The London Council at the centre of a controversial crackdown on homeless people has announced it will scrap a proposed £1,000 fine for rogue rough sleepers.

80,000 people petitioned Hackney councillors to strike rough sleeping from a list of 'anti-social' activities in areas controlled by a new Public Space Protection Order (PSPO), which people could be billed a heft sum for breaching.

The PSPO was allegedly designed to tackle "the anti-social behaviour linked to street drinking, persistent rough sleeping and begging in 'hot spots'".

McCraw said that the Obama administration stalls and stalls and the only way to get them to comply with the law is to sue them, which is a waste of taxpayer’s money.

He also noted that it meant that an ordinary citizen trying to find out what his country was up to was out of luck unless they were wealthy and could afford to go to court. That is not why the FOIA was passed. It was passed to make it easy for any everyday voter to find out how his government is functioning.

Sharyl Attkisson was also on hand and she , along with Newsweek Finance Editor Leah Goodman, declared that the only way to resolve the problem is through prosecuting employees responsible for withholding the information requested.

GREEK BANKS ON VERGE OF TOTAL COLLAPSE: BANK RUN SURGES "MASSIVELY" AS DEPOSITORS YANK €700 MILLION TODAY ALONE

While the Greek government believes it may have won the battle, if not the war with Europe, the reality is that every additional day in which Athens does not have a funding backstop, be it the ECB (or the BRIC bank), is a day which brings the local banking system to total collapse. As a reminder, Greek banks already depends on the ECB for some €80.7 billion in Emergency Liquidity Assistance which was about 60% of total deposits in the Greek financial system as of April 30. In other words, they are woefully insolvent and only the day to day generosity of the ECB prevents a roughly 40% forced "bail in" deposit haircut a la Cyprus.

A Government That Ignores Its Own Laws Is NOT a GOVERNMENT!

This missive was written by a little-known liberty organization back in November 2012... it's more relevant today than ever.

It is absolutely true that the Founding Fathers gave us a system of government that should have protected our nation from the excesses of any single president. However, the checks and balances, balance of powers, and other limitations enshrined in the Constitution, have all been ignored by our current government. Those checks and balances disappeared as soon as those in power realized that they could ignore the law and no one would do anything about it...

A government that ignores its own laws is NOT A GOVERNMENT!!!

It’s just a bunch of bullies asserting the power through coercion and threats. Our government now ignores its own laws.

UPDATE 5-Fracking not a 'widespread risk' to drinking water -U.S. EPA

Fracking for shale oil and gas has not led to widespread pollution of drinking water, a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency draft report said on Thursday, although it warned some drilling activities could potentially cause health risks.

The study, requested by Congress and five years in the making, said fracking could contaminate drinking water under certain conditions, such as when fluids used in the process leaked into the water table.

The EPA said it found isolated cases of water contamination, but "the number of identified cases ... was small compared to the number of hydraulically fractured wells.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am sure that executives of oil companies which do the fracking, and contribute mightily to both parties, in this country, are doing their happy dance right now.

Of course, I am an individual who firmly believes that all state and national representatives who approve of fracking must be compelled to live right over land where the fracking is done, and see what fun it is to find your health compromised by this activity, even for infants in the womb.

As reported at Web MD.com:

Living close to a high number of "fracked" natural gas wells may be linked to an increased risk of having a lower birth weight baby, according to a new study of Pennsylvania birth rates. High-volume hydraulic fracturing -- also known as "fracking" -- allows access to large amounts of natural gas trapped in shale deposits. Natural gas wells using this method are increasingly common in the United States. For example, the number of these types of wells in Pennsylvania's Marcellus Shale rose from 44 in 2007 to more than 2,800 in 2010, the researchers pointed out. In this study, University of Pittsburgh researchers analyzed the birth records of more than 15,400 babies born in Pennsylvania's Washington, Westmoreland and Butler counties between 2007 and 2010. Women who lived close to a high number of natural gas fracking sites were 34 percent more likely to have babies who were "small for gestational age" than mothers who did not live close to a large number of such wells, the study found. Small for gestational age means a baby is smaller than normal based on the number of weeks the baby has been in the womb, according to the March of Dimes. The findings held true even after the researchers accounted for numerous factors that could affect a newborn's weight, including whether a mother smoked, her race, age, education, prenatal care and whether she'd had previous children, as well as the baby's gender. The study, published online June 3 in the journal PLOS One, does not prove that living close to a high concentration of natural gas fracking sites caused lower birth weights, but does show the need for further investigation, the researchers said. "Our work is a first for our region and supports previous research linking unconventional gas development and adverse health outcomes," study co-author Bruce Pitt, chair of the University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health's Department of Environmental and Occupational Health, said in a university news release. "These findings cannot be ignored. There is a clear need for studies in larger populations with better estimates of exposure and more in-depth medical records," he added. Fracking produces waste fluids, along with air and noise pollution. "Developing fetuses are particularly sensitive to the effects of environmental pollutants. We know that fine particulate air pollution, exposure to heavy metals and benzene, and maternal stress all are associated with lower birth weight," Pitt said.

But, of course, to the politicians who get paid off to look the other way, and the oil companies making huge profits from this process, these babies and their families are simply "collateral damage".

It was the worst Star Wars sequel ever – more a farce, than anything.

But intergalactic justice was served, apparently. Or maybe we just crossed over into a dimension without rights or even basic sense.

George Cross, 40, of Lynn, was dressed in a white plastic “Star Wars” stormtrooper costume, and the gun was not real. But Lynn Police spokesman Lt. Rick Donnelly said that “the way things are today, you can’ have that.”

LAND OF THE UNFREE – POLICE AND PROSECUTORS FIGHT AGGRESSIVELY TO RETAIN BARBARIC RIGHT OF “CIVIL ASSET FORFEITURE”

In a nutshell, civil forfeiture is the practice of confiscating items from people, ranging from cash, cars, even homes based on no criminal conviction or charges, merely suspicion. This practice first became widespread for use against pirates, as a way to take possession of contraband goods despite the fact that the ships’ owners in many cases were located thousands of miles away and couldn’t easily be prosecuted. As is often the case, what starts out reasonable becomes a gigantic organized crime ring of criminality, particularly in a society where the rule of law no longer exists for the “elite,” yet anything goes when it comes to pillaging the average citizen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I barely recognise this country anymore.

Welcome to Amerika, my friends; land of the cowed, and the home of the surveilled.

FEDERAL JUDGE ORDERS INVESTIGATION OF ACCUSATIONS THAT PENTAGON INSPECTOR GENERAL DESTROYED DOCUMENTS IN WHISTLEBLOWER CASE

A federal judge is probing whether the Department of Defense’s inspector general (IG) destroyed documents related to the case of Thomas Drake, a former National Security Agency official turned whistleblower.

Drake endured retaliation from the government and prosecution from the Obama administration for cooperating with other whistleblowers starting a dozen years ago regarding NSA surveillance programs. The Department of Justice tried to convict Drake of violating espionage laws while acting as a whistleblower, but the case fell apart and prosecutors had to settle for getting Drake to plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The absolute, wanton corruption, at the highest levels of this government no longer shock me; it has become the absolute norm for this administration.

TSA has no excuse to continue the groping

Last August, Transportation Security Administration chief John Pistole attacked an article I wrote, stating that it was "Misleading, inaccurate and unfairly disparages the dedicated (TSA) workforce. … We will not sit back and allow misinformation and conjecture to malign our employees."

Pistole resigned last December — in time to miss the uproar this week about TSA agents failing to detect 95% of the weapons and bombs smuggled past them by Inspector General testers. While Pistole is leading the PR pushback to absolve his former agency, the I.G. report is the latest confirmation that TSA continues blindly blundering and pointlessly abusing Americans' rights and privacy.

Shortly after TSA was created in late 2001, one of its early mottoes was "Dominate. Intimidate. Control." From the start, the TSA put more focus on browbeating hapless travelers than intelligently focusing on actual aviation hazards.

Why Armed Drug Cops Took ‘every belonging’ from a Michigan Soccer Mom

The men who did this were officers of Michigan’s St. Clair County Drug Task Force executing a search warrant on her home. Shattuck, you see, is a registered medical marijuana caregiver under Michigan’s medical marijuana law. This allows her to grow a certain quantity of marijuana plants to distribute to a small number of medical marijuana patients.

TPP Begins to Unravel as Obama Launches Final Push For Votes

The Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade package is beginning to unravel, with more prominent voices slamming President Obama and the Republican leadership over the secretive deal that threatens to cost American jobs and hand big corporations new powers that would violate national sovereignty.

House Majority Whip Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) and Rules Committee chairman Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX) refused to reveal to Breitbart whether they had read the TPP agreement but still said they would support the Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) and allow President Barack Obama to fast-track the TPP.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

TPP is not a military secret. And it involves the livelihood of all Americans. From where does Obama get any kind of Constitutional authority to classify this deal we will all be expected to live by?

FLASHBACK - US college professor demands imprisonment for climate-change deniers

An assistant philosophy professor at Rochester Institute of Technology wants to send people who disagree with him about global warming to jail.

The professor is Lawrence Torcello. Last week, he published a 900-word-plus essay at an academic website called The Conversation.

His main complaint is his belief that certain nefarious, unidentified individuals have organized a “campaign funding misinformation.” Such a campaign, he argues, “ought to be considered criminally negligent.”

Why armed drug cops took ‘every belonging’ from a Michigan soccer mom

Annette Shattuck wasn't home when the masked men entered her house and ransacked it. But her 56-year-old mother was, clipping coupons and watching over Annette's four children under the age of 10, Shattuck recalled last week before the Michigan House of Representatives.

"After they breached my door, at gunpoint, with masks," she said, repeating what her family told her, "they proceeded to take every belonging in my house. And when I say every belonging, I mean every belonging." That included, she said, her husband's tools, the lawnmower and a bicycle. They took credit card statements, tax returns, and the public assistance card Shattuck used to help feed her family. They even took $90 worth of birthday money out of her daughter's "pink bedroom," as it's listed in a summary of seized property compiled by the police.

Baltimore Prosecutor Makes Major Announcement About Freddy Gray’s Autopsy

This unusual move has raised eyebrows across the country as those following the case speculate about what the report might contain.

Gov. McCrory pardons brothers exonerated after 30 years in prison

N.C. Gov. Pat McCrory on Thursday announced his decision to pardon 46-year-old Leon Brown and 50-year-old Henry McCollum in the rape and murder of Sabrina Buie. Columbus County Senior Resident Superior Court Judge Douglas Sasser exonerated the men and ordered their immediate release from prison in September 2014 after their cases were reviewed by the North Carolina Innocence Inquiry Commission.

With their pardons, McCollum, who lives in Bolivia, and Brown, who lives in Fayetteville, are entitled to compensation from the state–in this case it’s about $750,000 each, Payne said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh, wow! $750,000. That works out to about $3 an hour for the 30 years they were wrongfully imprisoned on death row!

It’s official: the USA FREEDOM Act is just a destructive as the USA PATRIOT Act

Secret FISA courts still exist. Lone wolf surveillance authority and roving wiretaps still exist. They can still grab oodles of other data like medical and business records.

And the US Attorney General has even been awarded new ’emergency powers’ to use in his/her sole discretion… just in case the secret courts might be uncooperative.

The big victory being cheered by the media pertains to the collection of phone records. This one is actually hilarious.

The USA FREEDOM Act prevents the government from seizing and storing ‘call detail records’, the so-called meta-data information like your phone number, the other caller’s phone number, the length of the call, etc.

But section 107(k)(3)(B) of the new law specifically states that ‘call detail records’ do NOT include the *actual content* of the call itself. Or your name. Address. Financial data. Cell-site location. Etc.

So basically they can’t archive your phone number. But everything else is fair game.

Replace Your Face: Anti-Surveillance 3D-Printed Mask Lets You Pass As Someone Else

Chicago-based artist Leo Selvaggio has started URME Surveillance, who aim to produce a prosthetic mask that could potentially render CCTV tracking and tracing obsolete. Different levels of product will be available, from inexpensive paper versions, to state-of-the-art 3D-printed models. Selvaggio wants to make his face available to all his users to wear in public, will full permission to anyone, anywhere to become his virtual doppelgänger.

One of the most widely deployed police and NSA surveillance systems is called Virtual Shield, and can not only track you, but can also pull up all of our corresponding information as well. The URME mask would make this impossible.

Debt and the Tinderbox

We know that the Federal Reserve cranked up their digital printing presses and created over $16 Trillion in new currency, swaps, loans, bailouts, gifts, etc. in response to the 2008 financial crisis. Example: Bernie Sanders says that Bank of America received over $1.3 Trillion in bailouts.

If you invested in stocks and bonds, the various QE – “money printing” programs were probably successful for you.

Ex-intel officials: Pentagon report proves US complicity in ISIS

According to leading American and British intelligence experts, a declassified Pentagon report confirms that the West accelerated support to extremist rebels in Syria, despite knowing full well the strategy would pave the way for the emergence of the ‘Islamic State’ (ISIS).

The experts who have spoken out include renowned government whistleblowers such as the Pentagon’s Daniel Ellsberg, the NSA’s Thomas Drake, and the FBI’s Coleen Rowley, among others.

Their remarks demonstrate the fraudulent nature of claims by two other former officials, the CIA’s Michael Morell and the NSA’s John Schindler, both of whom attempt to absolve the Obama administration of responsibility for the policy failures exposed by the DIA documents.

Secret Surveillance Agency More Powerful Than the NSA

The National Security Agency (NSA) may have been forced to take a stutter step in its surveillance program (or resort to methods not made public) earlier this week regarding the collecton of metadata under the PATRIOT Act, but there is another agency that is more secretive, more invasive, and has more information on you than could be gathered from your metadata.

Gawker’s Phase Zero reports on the scope of this shadow agency’s surveillance:

If you have a telephone number that has ever been called by an inmate in a federal prison, registered a change of address with the Postal Service, rented a car from Avis, used a corporate or Sears credit card, applied for nonprofit status with the IRS, or obtained non-driver’s legal identification from a private company, they have you on file.

Special Report: Website “The Counted” Tracks Police Shootings of Americans

You wouldn’t think a country like the United States, that is supposedly the most free and prosperous country in the world, because of its freedom, would need to have a website to track police shootings. No, not police shootings where the officers are shot by criminals — police shootings where out of control Militarized police unload dozens of rounds of ammunition into the bodies of citizens.

The website, is actually a page that runs on the Guardians website, and it is called ‘The Counted.’

The Counted is a huge database with records of Americans killed by police (by year), and offers you the ability to report, or give a tip of a recent shooting you may know about.

Destabilization, Inc. - Regime change by any means necessary

When the official history of the realm is one day written, it may contain several chapters that establish President Barack Obama as a great flag-bearer of liberty, free trade, and economic recovery. Those chapters will be drenched in distortion, tinged with the blood of true freedom fighters, darkened by the vanished jobs and sickly pall of an economy in permanent decline. But though parlor tricks like fiddling with unemployment numbers and disguising offshoring as free trade are notable for their sheer chutzpa, few deceits are more striking than those that occur in the sordid arena of regime change.

Police Killings At An All-Time High

A major investigative report by the Washington Post tells a chilling story: police killings nationwide are on a pace to eclipse 1,000 by year's end. That's more than double the national average in recent years. Even more disturbing is the fact that police shootings are largely underreported. Mind you, these statistics do not include police-inflicted deaths by means other than police bullets, such as stun guns and people in police custody.

The report states, "'These shootings are grossly under­reported,' said Jim Bueermann, a former police chief and president of the Washington-based Police Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving law enforcement. 'We are never going to reduce the number of police shootings if we don't begin to accurately track this information.'"

"And in a high-rise apartment in Birmingham, Ala., police shot an elderly man after his son asked them to make sure he was okay. Douglas Harris, 77, answered the door with a gun."

TTIP will legalize cancer-causing chemicals banned by EU, trade union warns

Britain could be flooded with harmful chemicals currently banned in the European Union if the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) deal is signed next week, a trade union has warned.

The GMB said chemicals that can cause cancerous tumors, birth defects and development disorders will be allowed in the EU after the controversial trade agreement is signed.

The union’s top health and safety officer expressed concern that TTIP would allow a “downward harmonization of standards” for chemicals currently banned in the EU.

In separate comments, GMB called for the UK to ensure the National Health Service (NHS) is protected from private companies if the trade deal goes ahead.

Gen. Allen: ISIS War to Last ‘A Generation or More’

Out of and quickly back into Iraq, the Pentagon and its officials have talked about the new ISIS war with barely restrained glee as another chance to keep pushing Congress for bigger budgets, and for “emergency” war funding every single year.

Retired Marine Gen. John Allen, who has become President Obama’s special ambassador for the war, going around the world selling it to potential allies, today predicted the conflict would be much longer than anyone imagines, saying it “will likely take a generation or more.”

Leaked TISA Documents Reveal Privacy Threat

Under the draft provisions of the latest trade deal to be leaked by Wikileaks, countries could be barred from trying to control where their citizens’ personal data is held or whether it’s accessible from outside the country.

Wikileaks has released 17 documents relating to the Trade in Services Agreement (TISA), currently under negotiation between the US, the European Union and 23 other nations. These negotiating texts are supposed to remain secret for five years after TISA is finalized and brought into force.

The deal, which has been under discussion behind closed doors since early 2013, is intended to remove barriers to trade in services. It’s a sort of companion piece to the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), which cover trade in goods – but potentially far bigger, with Wikileaks claiming that ‘services’ now account for nearly 80 per cent of the US and EU economies.

2016: Rubio, Graham Refuse to Answer Whether They Read Obamatrade Before Voting on It

Only two GOP presidential candidates currently in the U.S. Senate publicly admit to have read the Obamatrade agreement prior to voting on it: Sens. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY)

Cruz voted for Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) that would fast-track the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) Pacific Rim trade deal.

Sens. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) —the other two Senate Republicans who have announced they’re running for president—refuse to answer, through spokespersons, whether they’ve gone to the secret room to read the TPP deal and whether they did before voting on TPA. Both Rubio and Graham voted for TPA, which would fast-track TPP—and at this point they’re both choosing through staff to give the public impression they didn’t read the secret text before they voted.

Feds Under Investigation for Destroying Evidence in NSA Whistleblower Case

During the evidence gathering portion of Drake’s prosecution, his lawyers had attempted to obtain documentation relating to his cooperation with the Pentagon inspector general’s office for use in his defense, but were told that most of the documents had been destroyed according, they claimed, to policy.

“I investigated the destruction of documents and learned that the (the Pentagon inspector general’s office) does not have a document destruction policy,” Radack wrote in her letter to the judge. “Rather, (the inspector general’s office) has a Records Management Program, which dictated that the documents should have been retained.”
