Criminologist Likens Bill and Hillary To “Ordinary Criminals”

As a criminologist I see one common thread among the numerous items in the Clintons’ baggage—the unfair exploitation of opportunity for relatively quick pleasures. I also see that they have very little regard for the long-term negative consequences of those decisions. They have low self-control, in other words, just like all “ordinary criminals.” Ordinary criminals are the vast majority of arrestees almost everywhere. You don’t have to be a criminologist to figure it out.

Federal Courts Green Light Police Access to Cellphone Tower Records without a Warrant

A federal appeals court has ruled that law enforcement agencies may access tracking information on cell phones without a warrant. The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled (pdf) Tuesday that police were justified in asking a mobile phone provider to hand over the records of Quartavious Davis, who was convicted of committing seven armed robberies in South Florida in 2010. As part of the evidence used against Davis, prosecutors presented data showing that Davis’ phone was using cell towers near sites of robberies.

Santorum to Obama: ‘Iran, enemy. Israel, friend’

Rick Santorum hinted Saturday in South Carolina that he is close to announcing whether he will again run for president, telling a gathering of conservative activists he’s driven by what he called President Barack Obama’s failures on national security.

“Russia, China and yes, radical Islam, is threatening our country,” the former Pennsylvania senator said. “Heck, I would just be happy if our president would be able to tell the difference between our friends and enemies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Rick, we're all intelligent adults out here. We can decide for ourselves who our enemies are or are not.

Iran, not.

Russia, not.

China, not.

Private Central Banks? ENEMY!

Politicians willing to sell our children as mercenaries for Israel in exchange for campaign money? ENEMY!

But if you really feel that strongly about it, Rick, here's your rifle. Here's your parachute. We ran out of the camo but here is a bright da-glo orange jumpsuit left over from the CIA torture dungeons. Watch your head climbing into that transport plane ad we will call the Russians, Chinese, and Iranians to let them know you are on your way to kick their butts all by yourself.

But the rest of us, sick of endless wars launched with endless lies, will sit this one out and keep our kids here safe at home.

Hillary Clinton: Big Friend of Big Bankers

With the cost of a 2016 presidential campaign expected to reach more than $1 billion, a candidate will need some rich friends. Fortunately for Hillary Clinton, she has plenty of those on Wall Street. Nomi Prins, a former Wall Street executive and now senior fellow at the nonpartisan public policy institute Demos, writes that Clinton should be able to count on help from large financial institutions. Prins is the author of All the Presidents' Bankers: The Hidden Alliances that Drive American Power.

Today’s Victory Day celebrations in Moscow mark a turning point in Russian history

Today is truly a historical day. For the first time ever the West has boycotted the Victory Day Parade in Moscow and, also for the first time ever, Chinese forces have marched on the Beautiful Square (“Red” square is a mistranslation – the “Red Square” ought be called the “Beautiful Square”) with the Russians. I believe that this is a profoundly symbolic shift and one which makes perfectly good sense.

DHS broke judge’s order, approved amnesty applications despite injunction

President Obama’s lawyers admitted to a federal judge late Thursday that they had broken the court’s injunction halting the administration’s new deportation amnesty, issuing thousands of work permits even after Judge Andrew S. Hanen had ordered the program stopped.

The stunning admission, filed just before midnight in Texas, where the case is being heard, is the latest misstep for the administration’s lawyers, who are facing possible sanctions by Judge Hanen for their continued problems in arguing the case.

Caught On Tape: Stunned Reporter Grills State Department Why Hillary's Breaches Won't Be Investigated

Specifically, as Reuters reported, Clinton had promised the federal government that the Clinton Foundation and its associated charities would name all donors annually while she was the nation's top diplomat. "She also promised that the charities would let the State Department's ethics office review beforehand any proposed new foreign governments donations."

In March, the charities confirmed to Reuters for the first time that they had not complied with those pledges for most of Clinton's four years at the State Department.

The implication is that foreigners banned from donating to U.S. political campaigns could and likely did curry favor with her by giving to the charity that bears her name.

“This was not an untruth or a falsehood. This was just a mistake on his part,” Robert Litt, the general counsel for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, said during a panel discussion hosted by the Advisory Committee on Transparency on Friday.

V-DAY: Russia’s Perpetual Fight Against Fascism

70 years since the great Victory! 70 years since Soviet people saved the world by smashing Nazism.

All accords with Russia were broken, whenever it suited invaders. The Scandinavians wiped out countless Russian lives, and so did the Germans, French, Poles, Brits, North Americans and Czechs, to name just a few. Russians never really ‘punished’ anybody, in the Protestant, Anglo-Saxon way. Punishment is mainly puritan, Protestant rubbish; the Russian way of thinking is too quixotic for that.

The West lied to Lenin, to Stalin, to Khrushchev and finally to Gorbachev. The West has been lying to Putin and about Putin.

Jade Helm:Some Thoughts From Army ATC and Friends

by ArmyATC » Sat Apr 04, 2015 3:16 pm
A lot of people are trying to decode what jade Helm means. But very few are looking at the second line , which is the overall mission objective.

In combat ops there are 5 phases of combat. I'm not going to go into detail, but you can find it. But phase 0 operations are relatively new. In the NDAA 2014, if you read through it, it provides increasing the budget for phase 0 operation.

What this is. Well this has to do with using infiltration techniques to identify who will be a problem BEFORE the fighting begins. Identifying individuals and groups that would be assessed by the military as possible non state actors.

That way, they can extract these individuals before ops begin thus severely limiting organized resistance.

McRaven: Success in Human Domain Fundamental to Special Ops

While special operations forces are comfortable in the realms of traditional warfare, the human domain is perhaps more important -- both to the troops and to policy makers, McRaven said.

The human domain encompasses the totality of the physical, cultural, and social environments that influence human behavior, he explained. Success in this domain won't be achieved by traditional ground, naval or air forces, he added.

“Instead, success in the human domain will depend upon understanding the human terrain and establishing trust with those humans who occupy that space,” the admiral said. Building understanding and trust takes time, but once it’s built, “we can apply unique capabilities that are designed to assess, analyze, operate and prevail in population-centric strategies or struggles,” he said.

Human Terrain System

The Human Terrain System (HTS) is a United States Army, Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) support program employing personnel from the social science disciplines – such as anthropology, sociology, political science, regional studies and linguistics – to provide military commanders and staff with an understanding of the local population (i.e. the "human terrain") in the regions in which they are deployed

A Brief Overview Of ABI And Human Domain Analytics

In Iraq, the Intelligence Community was tasked with finding terrorists and insurgents bent on harming US Forces and their interests. These terrorists or insurgents rarely performed activities that were dissimilar from non-terrorists (especially in the planning phases). In terms of Iraqi mysteries, the questions were “Will something happen?” and “How can we predict it and prevent it?” Analysts began to develop techniques to address these mysteries using any means at their disposal to aggregate these activities, assess transactions, and develop networks of interest.

Thinking Differently: Unlocking the Human Domain in Support of the 21st Century Intelligence Mission

People are the currency of the human domain; their visible behaviors and symbols are one of the only ways to really discern their thoughts and motivations. Add in the cultural complexity of differing worldviews, beliefs and values that play on those thoughts and motivations and the domain becomes even less certain to decode. Factor in that U.S. military and civilian personnel directly, and indirectly, influence the course of interactions and behavior in the domain and the human domain becomes incredibly layered and dense, where meaning and purpose is difficult to extract and effort and skill necessary for success within the domain difficult to master.

White House Sent 3 Officials to Freddie Gray Funeral… None to Slain NYPD Officer Brian Moore’s

In a disgusting display of Barack Obama’s allegiances, the White House has reached a new low… Turning their backs on slain NYPD officer Brian Moore. Moore, lost his life at only 25 years old after he was shot in the head by Demetrius Blackwell in Queens Saturday.

Described as “exceptional young officer” by New York Police Commissioner William Bratton, Moore’s life was obviously not important enough to the Obama Administration to send anyone in his honor. Obama sent three White House officials to the funeral of Freddie Gray and three to the funeral of Michael Brown…

US Approves Saudi Use Of Banned Cluster Bombs (But Only If They're Extra Careful)

IRS shocks federal judges with statement on targeting conservatives

According to critics of the Obama administration and the IRS, Americans must endure one of the most progressive and intrusive tax-collecting systems in the world. "It appears that the IRS which is supposed to be non-political has been turned into a 'sword' against anyone who dares to disagree with Obama's radical agenda," claims political strategist Mike Baker. "And while the IRS mercilessly pursues average Americans, they permit tax cheats such as Rev. Al Sharpton, who owes the IRS at least $4 million in taxes, to have access to the Obama White House and other parts of the administration. It's believed he's being let off because he has a TV show on MSNBC on which he echoes the Obama White House propaganda and talking points" Baker alleges.

Syrian Army Ambushes Large Islamist Contingent in As-Sweida; Israeli Weapons Confiscated

On Thursday morning, the Syrian Arab Army’s 5th Armored Division – in coordination with the National Defense Forces (NDF) and Palestine Liberation Army (PLA) – laid a powerful ambush on a large Islamist rebel contingent traveling through the hills of Al-Khalidiyah in the As-Sweida Governorate.

The militants from the Syrian Al-Qaeda group “Jabhat Al-Nusra” and their allies from “Liwaa Al-Yarmouk” and the Free Syrian Army (FSA) were traveling through Al-Khalidiyah in order to transport a multitude of Israeli and American manufactured weapons to their fighters entrenched in the northern countryside of As-Sweida.

This year, many Afghan poppy farmers are expecting a windfall as they get ready to harvest opium from a new variety of poppy seeds said to boost yield of the resin that produces heroin. The plants grow bigger, faster, use less water than seeds they've used before, and give up to double the amount of opium, they say.

American presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton is embroiled in yet another political scandal, albeit this time one with a sweeping international reach that touches on Russia and Kazakhstan.

President Barack Obama: Monsanto's man in Washington

"Let folks know when their food is genetically modified, because Americans have a right to know what they're buying." (Barack Obama, 2007)

"Own the food supply, run the world. Decide who eats, who doesn't. Eliminate more and more small independent farmers and take over their land. That's the Globalist formula operating behind Monsanto." (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

I have published this piece before. Since then, the global outcry against Monsanto and the other biotech giants has accelerated---but not a significant peep has emerged from the White House.

Why Scientists are Worried about the newly approved GMO Potato and Apple

When Brazilian research scientists fed tiny pieces of RNA to young honey bees, they expected little to happen—certainly nothing earth-shaking. The RNA used is not naturally found in bees. It was taken from jellyfish, chosen because it was supposed to have an insignificant impact. The RNA didn’t cooperate.After mixing just a single meal of RNA into the natural diet of the worker bee larvae, as the bees grew older, scientists discovered that a staggering 1461 genes showed significant changes compared to controls.[1] In other words, about 10% of all the bees’ genes, including those vital to health, were either turned up in volume, or more often than not, turned down.[2] The authors of the study concluded that such a massive change “undoubtedly” triggered changes in the bees’ development, physiology, and behavior.

Perhaps the scientists from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) missed this 2013 study when they recently approved potatoes and apples genetically engineered not to brown. “Arctic” apple slices (nicknamed the “Botox apple”) can supposedly sit on the shelf for 15-18 days without discoloring to reveal their age. Sliced up “Innate” potatoes will similarly not show any darkening day after day until they eventually dry up.

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-New York), a frequent critic of the military’s failure to adequately report and punish those who commit sexual assault, has issued a report that concluded theDepartment of Defense’s annual totals for these cases have been seriously underreported by leaving out civilian spouses of military personnel and those who live near military bases.

Senate Sets Test Vote on Iran Sanctions Bill

As expected, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R – KY) has cut off debate on the compromise bill aimed at giving Congress the power to veto a P5+1 nuclear agreement with Iran.

Sen. McConnell’s move cuts off debate on further amendments to the bill, which have predominantly aimed to add more onerous restrictions to a nuclear deal that would almost certainly kill the talks outright.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Congress does not have any authority over the United Nations Security Council, which is the "P5" in "P5+1." Odd how a Congress totally uninterested in oversight when the White House wants to start a war suddenly demands they be heard when the White House wants to work towards peace! But I digress.

Congress, in inserting itself into a foreign policy issue, is in violation of the Logan Act. All they can do is order Obama not to agree to the P5+1 at which point the other nations will just move forward with their own agreement to end the sanctions, and the US will be the one who is economically isolated.

Putin Aide Says Israel is Training ISIS

A senior aide to Russian President Vladimir Putin has accused Israel's Mossad of training Islamic State (aka ISIS) terrorists operating in Iraq and Syria, Iran's Press TV reports.

Alexander Prokhanov told the state-controlled news outlet that Mossad is also likely to have transferred some of its “spying experience” to the leadership of ISIS, even as Israeli military advisers assisted the terrorists in other ways.

Prokhanov said ISIS is a byproduct of US policies in the Middle East.

"ISIS is a tool at the hands of the United States. They tell the Europeans that if we (the Americans) do not intervene, ISIS will cause you harm," he said. In fact, however, he added, Iran and Russia are the main targets of ISIS terror.

Ski trip for Michelle Obama and her daughters cost taxpayers $57,000 – and that's just for the flights to Aspen!

U.S. taxpayers forked over more than $57,000 when Michelle Obama and her daughters Sasha and Malia took a weekend ski trip to Aspen, Colorado in February.

That's just for the flights. And just for one trip. Mrs. Obama has taken similar journeys each of the last three years over President's Day weekend. This year it happened to coincide with Valentine's Day.

Judicial Watch, a right-leaning watchdog group, obtained documents through a Freedom Of Information Act request showing that the U.S. Air Force ferried the three Obamas – the president was golfing elsewhere – to a ski resort over the extended weekend, spending $57,068 on jet travel.

The round-trip flight from Andrews Air Force Base consumed 7.4 hours of flying time in a Gulfstream 550 aircraft – a $53.5 million plane – at a cost of $7,712 per hour.

Chaos – not Victory – is Empire’s Name of the Game

“Once again a country “liberated” by the West is sinking deeper and deeper into chaos.”

This could be anyone of the countries in conflict, where Washington and its Western and Middle Eastern stooges sow war – eternal chaos, misery, death – and submission.

This is precisely the point: The Washington / NATO strategy is not to ‘win’ a war or conflict, but to create ongoing – endless chaos. That’s the way (i) to control people, nations and their resources; (ii) to assure the west is in continuous need for military – troops and equipment – remember more than 50% of the US GDP depends on the military industrial complex, related industries and services; and (iii) finally, a country in disarray or chaos, is broke and needs money – money with hardship conditions, ‘austerity’ money from the notorious IMF, World Bank and other associated nefarious ‘development institutions’ and money lenders; money that equals enslavement, especially with corrupt leaders that do not care for their people.

Scott Walker Says He Would Crush What’s Left Of Unions If Elected President

Though he has yet to officially declare his bid for president, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is frequenting early primary states and hinting at what he would do if elected to the White House. In a recent interview with Radio Iowa, Walker said he would champion a federal version of the controversial ‘right-to-work’ law he signed earlier this year.

“As much as I think the federal government should get out of most of what it’s in right now, I think establishing fundamental freedoms for the American people is a legitimate thing and that would be something that would provide that opportunity in the other half of America to people who don’t have those opportunities today,” he said.

The city of Baltimore received over $1.8 billion from President Barack Obama’s stimulus law, including $467.1 million to invest in education and $26.5 million for crime prevention.

President Obama claimed last Tuesday that if the Republican-controlled Congress would implement his policies to make “massive investments in urban communities,” they could “make a difference right now” in the city, currently in upheaval following the death of Freddie Gray.

However, a Washington Free Beacon analysis found that the Obama administration and Democratically-controlled Congress did make a “massive” investment into Baltimore, appropriating $1,831,768,487 though the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), commonly known as the stimulus.

U.S. State Department Pettier and More Vindictive than During Cold War

The U.S. State Department under Barack Obama has become more petty and vindictive diplomatically than at any time in recent history, including during the Cold War. The actions of U.S. diplomats in pressuring heads of state and government not to attend the May 9 Victory over Nazism commemoration in Moscow, coupled with the U.S. leaning on countries to recognize Kosovo while warning them not to recognize Abkhazia or South Ossetia, is unprecedented in its vitriol.

Sexual Assault By Military Personnel Still Hidden 'In The Shadows,' US Senator Says

Days after the Pentagon said it drives to handle rape in the military were paying off; a U.S. representative has blamed the Defense Department for concealing the genuine degree of such criminal acts. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., said on Monday that an expansive number of cases keep on staying "in the shadows," as per a report by the Associated Press.

U.S. CUTS BACK ITS WATCHDOGS AFTER BILLIONS LOST AND BILLIONS MORE TO BE SPENT ON ESCALATING AFGHANISTAN WAR

The Obama administration is attempting to slash the resources of the watchdog that has repeatedly exposed wasteful spending of billions of tax dollars in Afghanistan. The Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR), John Sopko, has never shied away from reporting on the myriad mistakes and bad decisions on the part of the State and Defense departments in Afghanistan.

9/11 Research and the “American Left”: The Discourse of Foundation-funded “Alternative” Media

Given the impact of the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington five years ago, and the events that they helped to unleash – the declaration of a war which “may not end in our lifetimes” and the acceleration of a global police-state agenda – it is no easy task to discern or exploit positive countertrends. One such trend, however, may be emerging. With a reported 36% of the US population rejecting the official account of September 11th 2001, something unexpected appears to be taking place. The collapse in public confidence with respect to the official “War on Terror” narrative could illustrate the beginning of a wider breakdown in elite brainwashing and mass submission to the top-down dictation of reality. For this new process has affected not only the corporate media. It has opened up a huge breach between the comfortable ‘alternative’ media of the traditional US Left, and a new, more diverse community that pursues the harder task following where the evidence leads.

Coalition Dropping US-Made Cluster Bombs on Yemen

The Saudi-led bombing campaign against rebels in Yemen is using U.S.-supplied cluster munitions, endangering civilians and violating an international arms treaty, Human Rights Watch warned on Sunday.

According to the group, there is "credible evidence" that cluster bombs have been used in recent weeks as part of coalition airstrikes in Yemen’s northern Saada governorate, a Houthi stronghold that borders Saudi Arabia. Through analysis of satellite imagery, Human Rights Watch charges that the weapons landed on a "cultivated plateau, within 600 meters of several dozen buildings in four to six village clusters."

Great article and links for newbies and alternative news vets alike!

The New World Order is upon us. As amazing as it may seem, we are living in the Last Days. The world is quickly uniting into a One World government, economy, religion and cashless society; under the control of The Council On Foreign Relations (CFR), the United Nations (UN), The International Monetary Fund (IMF), World Bank, Bilderberg Group and the Trilateral Commission. All of these visible organizations are the vehicles by which the Illuminati control the world.

Spin – Satellite Feeds Collected When Politicians Think No One is Watching

Using the 1992 presidential election as his springboard, documentary filmmaker Brian Springer captures the behind-the-scenes maneuverings of politicians and newscasters in the early 1990s. Pat Robertson banters about “homos,” Al Gore learns how to avoid abortion questions, George Bush talks to Larry King about halcyon — all presuming they’re off camera. Composed of 100% unauthorized satellite footage, Spin is a surreal expose of media-constructed reality.

Gaza Crisis “Unsustainable and Intolerable”

Carter and Brandtland are two of The Elders, “independent global leaders, brought together by Nelson Mandela, who offer their collective influence and experience to support peace building, help address major causes of human suffering and promote the shared interests of humanity”.

In her statement following the visit, Brundtland, who is currently the Deputy Chair of The Elders, said:

We came here to visit Gaza, the West Bank and Israel. "As you know, we were unable to go to Gaza...."

The two of them, a 90 year old former U.S. president, and his much younger colleague from Norway, have become a crusading international dynamic duo determined to end the immediate Gaza suffering that is both “unsustainable and intolerable”.

Planning Chaos in the Middle East: Destruction of Societies for Foreign Money Control

If one wonders how a desert-crawling line of Japanese open-back trucks gifted by the US filled with countless irregular fighters in plain view could ever have ever made it overnight to the point where Western military and political leaders are saying “the war against ISIL may be interminable”, one begins to see through the game. ISIL is a construction financed and trained by covert US and oil-king allies that ruins every place it enters, like Syria once the regime began to win the civil war. Al-Nusra/Al Qaeda was not enough. ISIL is a step up in the US-led control of the Middle East by terror, chaos and social devastation. “The Salvador option” was the first name for the post-war death squads in Iraq, but “Islamic State” stirs much more apocalyptic passions pro and con. Best of all, the ruling foreign war machines of the US, Israel, Saudi Arabia and NATO are now far better justified to “fight the barbaric terrorists”. Saudi Arabia with US support is now even projecting the “terrorist” and sectarian “Shiite” labels on the popular uprising of the poor in Yemen against a corrupt US-Saudi puppet government. One object alone is achieved. Peoples and resources of the region can be predated without sovereign social defences or unity of collective life purpose, the ultimate target of every US-led aggression. As long as all evils can be blamed on an ever-shifting Enemy, there is no overcoming recognition.

The Secret Mountain Our Spies Will Hide In When Washington Is Destroyed

America’s Preparathon, yesterday’s national pep rally—brought to you by the Department of Homeland Security—tipped me off to this real underground bunker north of Charlottesville, Virginia. The bunker’s purpose is completely secret, though I was easily able to verify that it has been expanded and spiffed up in the years since 9/11 at a cost of tens of millions of dollars. It serves as a compact parable for everything that is wrong with government.

Report: Saudi Ground Troops Enter Neighboring Yemen

A “limited” number of ground troops have deployed in Yemen’s second city Aden to support loyalist militia fighters, according to reports quoting Yemeni sources. Yemeni officials said at least 20 Arab coalition troops landed in the southern port city on Sunday on a “reconnaissance” mission. The coalition has been conducting an air war against Iran-allied Shia Houthi fighters since March 26, but this is the first reported ground deployment inside the Arabian Peninsula country

America’s Control Over the World Is Rapidly Eroding

The U.S. government has angered many countries because of their long history of highly aggressive military actions, but there seems to be no plan of stopping. It would be smart to listen to the other countries and simmer down in the military department before it is too late. It’s no secret that the U.S. is most certainly not the most loved country in the world because of its government’s long history of highly aggressive military actions, as well as its interference in the internal affairs of countless nations. But what we are seeing today is that an increasing number of nations are turning against the U.S. and taking various actions to rid themselves of its presence and influence.

Washington Blocks Security Council Action on Vital Yemeni Humanitarian Needs

It bears repeating what other articles stressed. Yemen is Obama's war - another atrocity on his rap sheet affecting an entire country and its 25 million people in dire need of humanitarian aid to survive.

US wants control of Iran’s natural resources: American writer

The longstanding American and Western aggression against Iran is aimed at taking control of Tehran’s wealth and natural resources, a writer and researcher in Florida says.

Some Republican lawmakers in Congress are aggressively trying to forestall a nuclear agreement that can potentially bring peace instead of bloodshed between Iran and the West, said Walt Peretto.

“There is an underlying agenda here of aggression by the United States and other Western nations in the name of those interests who wish to take de facto control over Iran's money supply and natural resources,” Peretto told Press TV on Friday.

US Republican Senators Tom Cotton and Marco Rubio are attempting to toughen a bill with amendments including adding a requirement that Iran recognize Israel as an independent state as part of any potential nuclear agreement.

The Day After Damascus Falls

The Saudi-Israeli alliance has gone on the offensive, ramping up a “regime change” war in Syria and, in effect, promoting a military victory for Al-Qaeda or its spinoff, the Islamic State. But the consequences of that victory could toll the final bell for the American Republic, writes Robert Parry.

If Syrian President Bashar al-Assad meets the same fate as Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi or Iraq’s Saddam Hussein, much of Official Washington would rush out to some chic watering hole to celebrate – one more “bad guy” down, one more “regime change” notch on the belt. But the day after Damascus falls could mark the beginning of the end for the American Republic.

Irony of Ironies: Afghan Watchdog Who Identified Vast Waste Told to Slash Staff

How’s this for poetic injustice? The watchdog who found that fully half of all monies poured into Afghanistan was unaccounted for or wasted… has been told to slash his staff.

It seems, despite (or perhaps because of) the $56 billion dumped into “reconstruction”, the Department of Defense (DOD) cannot afford to keep the watchdog at present strength.

Shooting (or is it slashing?) the Messengers

John Sopko, the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR), was ordered by the US embassy in Kabul to slash his staff in the country by 40 percent and that the cut was “non-negotiable.”
“This arbitrary number was developed without SIGAR’s input, and embassy officials did not provide any explanation for how they determined these cuts,” Sopko said April 30 in testimony before the National Security subcommittee of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

Is Merkel a CIA Asset ?

Is Merkel an asset for American intelligence, serving the geopolitical interests of Washington rather than the good of her own nation, or the wider good of Europe?

The claims that Merkel’s government knew about German state intelligence spying on behalf of the Americans against the country’s own industrial interests raise disturbing questions about the integrity of German government leaders.

The apparent betrayal of German national interests by Chancellor Angela Merkel is not only evident over the recent industrial spying scandal on behalf of America, the slavish pursuit by Merkel of Washington’s anti-Russian policy over Ukraine — in contradistinction to her country’s national interests — also cogently suggests that the chancellor is serving a foreign master.

AP claims that majority support killer drone program

Despite President Barack Obama's recent admission that drones had inadvertently killed two innocent hostages during strikes on suspected militants in Pakistan, a new poll released Friday reveals that nearly 75 percent of Americans say it's acceptable to use such drones to kill an American citizen abroad if that person is said to have "joined a terror organization."

The poll, conducted by the Associated Press and the GfK Group between April 23-27, also found that a majority—6 in 10—supports the use of drones to target "terrorists" in general. Only 13 percent oppose the use of drones altogether, the poll said, and another 24 percent don't feel strongly either way.

US ready to take risk of war with Iran for Israeli regime's sake: Biden

As the White House tries to mend fences with the Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who is upset about nuclear talks with Iran, Vice President Joe Biden says the US is ready to risk a military confrontation in support of the Israeli regime.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Okay, Joe, if you really feel that way about it... Here's your rifle. Here's your parachute. We ran out of the desert camo but here's a bright da-glo orange jumpsuit from the CIA's torture centers. Watch your head climbing into that transport aircraft, and we will call Tehran and tell them you are on your way to kick their butts all by yourself.

But We The People remember the lies about stolen incubators that tricked us into the first invasion of Iraq.

We The People remember the lies about Saddam's nuclear weapons that tricked us into the second invasion of Iraq.

We The People remember how only a year ago you tried to trick us into war with Syria with more lies about poison gas.

We The People remember how there weren't really torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin or a Spanish mine in Havana Harbor, but how there really WERE weapons on board the Lusitania.

In short, We The People remember all the lies, frauds, and deceptions used to trick us into wars of conquest, to send our young people out to die in wars created out of thin air by and for the money-junkies. I think it is time that we have a new rule in America; that those who want war are the first to the front lines. You are all splendidly brave with the lives of other peoples' children. Let's see the true measure of your courage and commitment to war.

You first!

And just to keep you honest, please recall that Iran has not initiated a war of conquest against another nation in over 200 years; a sharp contrast to the US and Israel, which these days cannot seem to go two months without invading, drone-striking, or overthrowing someone else's nation!

"Fast Track" Flouts the Constitution

On Saturday, just a few days after the president accused her of spreading "misinformation," about the TPP trade deal I like to call SHAFTA, the Massachusetts senator hit back hard in a letter to the White House.

While the Obama administration has, she pointed out, given 500 or so corporate lobbyists inside access to TPP negotiations, it has left the public completely in the dark.

In fact, as Senator Warren went on to write, "It is currently illegal for the press, experts, advocates, or the general public to review the text of this agreement. And while ... Members of Congress may 'walk over ... and read the text of the agreement' -- as we have done -- [we] are prohibited by law from discussing the specifics of that text in public."

That's right -- members of Congress, the elected representatives of "We the People" can't talk to the public about the biggest trade treaty in US history.

Israel, the bomb and Western double-think

Israel’s nuclear arsenal has been common knowledge for decades, partly thanks to whistle-blower Mordechai Vanunu, who is still denied his freedom despite having served a sentence of 18 years.

The Center for Nonproliferation Studies have reported that Israel probably has up to 300 warheads – about the same as the UK. These include intercontinental-range thermonuclear weapons and artillery-delivered, enhanced-radiation tactical weapons ('neutron bombs').

Nuclear facilities in Israel include the nuclear reactor at Dimona in the Negev where Vanunu worked, nuclear storage bases at Eilabun near the Sea of Galilee and the national weapons testing laboratory at Soreq, south of Tel Aviv.

Israel has always refused to confirm or deny their existence: what Avner Cohen, author of Israel and the bomb, calls a policy of "Don’t ask, don’t tell."
Naturally, no inspection of these facilities by the International Atomic Energy Authority has been allowed.

This surveillance evolved into a program called Stellarwind. Now, newly declassified documents show that the data obtained from Stellarwind was so secret that it was not useful in tracking terrorists.

Washington Choreographing All-Out War with Russia?

The provocation to Russia has to be seen in the wider even more troubling context of American-led NATO build-up of troops, warplanes, warships and missiles across Eastern Europe – and all pointed at Russia.

The reckless American leaders are putting in place incendiary elements that heighten the risk of all-out war with Russia.

With the reported arrival of 300 American paratroopers in Ukraine collaborating with Kiev’s Neo-Nazi National Guard brigades – the worst offenders over the past year’s fighting in eastern Ukraine – that development is an alarming harbinger of imminent conflict.

Of utmost concern is that the US military forces have reportedly moved into the Donetsk region near the conflict zone.

To help spread its message, the NSA has produced a coloring book. You know, for kids

While I wasn’t able to score any government-issue school supplies, and none of the representatives could tell me if the NSA was still operating out of the hermetic former AT&T fiber optic hub down the street at 2nd and Folsom, I did walk away with a copy of the “CryptoKids Fun Book”, images from which you can see below.

Which anthropomorphic Myers-Briggs Type crypto-kid are you? I’m Decipher Dog, always looking for “the hidden messages behind the words, symbols and sounds,” and reading the latest robot news in Cryptobyte Monthly. That said, I don’t condone Dog’s habit of wearing shoes in bed and looking at kitty porn on his laptop. You bad dog you.

Another Idiotic Plan to Hurt Russia

So, is this the plan, to provide “energy security” to Europe by replacing Russian gas with Iranian gas?

It sure looks like it. But that suggests that the sanctions really had nothing to do with Iran’s fictitious nuclear weapons program but were merely used to humiliate Iran while keeping as much of its oil and gas offline until western-backed multinationals could get their greasy mitts on it.

Indeed, that’s exactly how the sanctions were used even though the nuclear issue was a transparent fake from the get go. Get a load of this from the New York Times:

“Recent assessments by American spy agencies are broadly consistent with a 2007 intelligence finding that concluded that Iran had abandoned its nuclear weapons program years earlier, according to current and former American officials. The officials said that assessment was largely reaffirmed in a 2010 National Intelligence Estimate, and that it remains the consensus view of America’s 16 intelligence agencies.” (U.S. Agencies See No Move by Iran to Build a Bomb, James Risen, New York Times, February 24, 2012)

Declassified Report Shows Doubts About Value of N.S.A.’s Warrantless Spying

The secrecy surrounding the National Security Agency’s post-9/11 warrantless surveillance and bulk data collection program hampered its effectiveness, and many members of the intelligence community later struggled to identify any specific terrorist attacks it thwarted, a newly declassified document shows.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, the US Government violated the Constitution, spied on law abiding citizens, drooled over stolen naked pictures of our wives and girlfriends, helped themselves to our business secrets, spent a huge amount of money, made out computer systems more vulnerable under the claim of making us more secure ... and utterly failed to find and stop any terrorists.

Yeah; that's the quality work we have come to expect from the bozos in DC!

Let's be honest. While the contractors for this boondoggle have made billions of dollars, the system failed and it failed for precisely the reason I said it would fail.

1. People lie on social media, which means social media is not a source of reliable hard intelligence. No real criminals or terrorists use social media because is is social! Discussing an act of terror on Facebook makes as much sense as discussing a robbery while having lunch in a restaurant. It is a given others will be listening in.

2. Real criminals and terrorists, if they use telecommunications at all, will develop their own encryption systems, which as we demonstrated, will be unbreakable to the NSA.

So the reason the NSA system never found any real terrorists is that it wasn't supposed to. The NSA is watching YOU, for the US Government, which is afraid that you no longer naively trust them, that you will not do what you are told to do, not believe what you are told to believe, will refuse to pay the money you are told to pay, refuse to let your children be killed and crippled in wars when told to do so, and worse, might decide, as our forebears did in 1776, to give this abusive government and it's slave-system of private central banking the old heave ho!

Obamacare: AMAC Says The ‘Silence is Deafening’ As We Await Its Fate

“You don’t hear many people talking about the Affordable Care Act these days. It appears interest in Obamacare has dwindled to perhaps its lowest level in the five years since Obamacare was born in 2010. Is it because opponents and proponents of the law are holding their collective breath in anticipation? There’s a lot at stake. If the justices rule that federal subsidies are legit, it’ll be business as usual but if they deny subsidies it will be a devastating blow to the law as it stands,” Weber said.

But the fact is that, behind the scenes, the new Congress has been working on a “course correction” that has its origins well before the enactment of Obamacare.

Mexico Police – Trained to Kill

This is an outrage!

Sixteen people killed in cold blood by the Mexican Federal Police; unarmed people of an auto-defense movement – in January 2015; just discovered by a team of investigative journalists.

Mexicans well remember the mass killing of 43 Ayotzinapa students of last September, unarmed students of a college that caters to the rural poor, who were protesting the government’s education reform which would make school unaffordable for the poor. Their killing was provoked by the police in connivance with drug cartels.

They train armies and police in their 'client' states to assure oppression whenever there is a chance that people may claim their civil rights. This is what empire does.

UK election: What the parties say about Palestine

“Law” and “justice” are words that seldom if ever pass the lips of our politicians when discussing the ‘Palestine Question’ — or shouldn’t that be properly called the ‘Israel Question’? In the UK there is still no rush, it seems, to deliver law or justice to the situation after 100 years of betrayal.

Britain’s ferocious warmongering in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya, and efforts to destabilize Syria, caused havoc in those countries and earned us a reputation for human misery making. This week our misbegotten chickens came home to roost in an unbearably distressing way as desperate refugee-migrants drowned at sea hundreds at a time.

Galeano Died — Revolution Goes On!

In Latin America, Eduardo Galeano was revered as a giant of letters, as a symbol of rebellion, of revolution, and of the fight for justice.

“Utopia is on the horizon,” Galeano once wrote. “I move two steps closer; it moves two steps further away. I walk another ten steps and the horizon runs ten steps further away. As much as I may walk, I’ll never reach it. So what’s the point of utopia? The point is this: to keep walking.”

Galeano told me that he was in love with two ladies, both splendid, both fragile, both tremendously desirable. One was called Utopia, the other, Reality.

Both are dangerous to the masters of the world, to Empire, because one gathers dreams, including dreams for a better world, while the other one bravely tells the truth.

Will Washington Kill Us All? — Paul Craig Roberts

The demonization of Russia and its leader by the New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, Fox News, and the rest of the American Propaganda Ministry, by almost the entirety of the House and Senate, and by the White House makes reducing the threat of nuclear war impossible.

How much confidence do you have in Washington? How many times has Washington–especially the crazed neocons–been wrong?

Did you know that Washington keeps 450 nuclear ICBMs on “hair-trigger alert”? Washington thinks that this makes us “safe.” The reasoning, if it can be called reason, is that by being able to launch in a few minutes, no one will try to attack the US with nuclear weapons. US missiles are able to get on their way before the enemy’s missiles can reach the US to destroy ours.

If this makes you feel safe, you need to read Eric Schlosser’s book, Command and Control.

Secretary Of State For Hire: Hillary Clinton Made Millions From Foreign Donors In Exchange For "Favors"

What is not known, and what will be revealed in a new book "Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich,” by Peter Schweizer, is something far more sinister: foreign entities made payments to the Clinton Foundation and to Mr. Clinton through high speaking fees expected, and received, favors from Mrs. Clinton’s State Department in return.

FLASHBACK - FILEGATE: THE CLINTON WHITE HOUSE SNOOPED ON IT'S ENEMIES

As of July 20th, 1998, the Associated Press reports that Linda Tripp's FBI was among those collected by the White House. Now, when the following list was originally released, it was claimed that it stopped at the letter "G" because the White House had suddenly realized that something was wrong and quit requesting files.

Clearly, with Linda's "T" file now known to have been requested by the White House, that claim is a lie, and files from H to T had to also have been requested.

I guess this is an open letter to anybody that might
read this on the Internet. My name is Russell Welch.
I was a criminal investigator in the Arkansas State
Police until January 16, 1996. Almost all of that
time was spent in Mena, Arkansas. I was the second
criminal investigator assigned to Mena. The first
investigator was placed at Mena in 1977 primarily
to monitor drug traffic at the Mena Airport. Barry
Seal wasn't the first show to come to the Mena Airport
and he wasn't the last. I took over investigations
at Mena in 1981. At that time, my supervisors
kept pressure on me to develop cases at the Mena
Airport. By 1990, I was being ordered to stay away
from apparent drug activity at the airport. Before
I was ordered away from drug activity, high ranking
officers in the Arkansas State Police were allowing
suspects to look at my files. The suspects didn't
even have to ask for access to my files. The information

Bill Clinton Cashed In When Hillary Became Secretary of State

After his wife became Secretary of State, former President Bill Clinton began to collect speaking fees that often doubled or tripled what he had been charging earlier in his post White House years, bringing in millions of dollars from groups that included several with interests pending before the State Department, an ABC News review of financial disclosure records shows.

Where he once had drawn $150,000 for a typical address in the years following his presidency, Clinton saw a succession of staggering paydays for speeches in 2010 and 2011, including $500,000 paid by a Russian investment bank and $750,000 to address a telecom conference in China.

More Clinton Cronyism: Selling Uranium Interests To Russia While Hillary Was SecState

As the Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, Canadian records show, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation. Uranium One’s chairman used his family foundation to make four donations totaling $2.35 million. Those contributions were not publicly disclosed by the Clintons, despite an agreement Mrs. Clinton had struck with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors. Other people with ties to the company made donations as well.

And shortly after the Russians announced their intention to acquire a majority stake in Uranium One, Mr. Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock.

Change They Don’t Believe In

The unfortunate consequence of not allowing the process of “creative destruction” to occur in banking and Big Business is that the historic forces behind it will seek expression elsewhere in the realm of politics and governance. The desperate antics of central banks to cover up financial failure can’t help but provoke political upheaval, including war.

It’s a worldwide phenomenon and one result will be the crackup of economic relations — thought by many to be permanent — that we call “globalism.” The USA has suffered mightily from globalism, by which a bonanza of cheap “consumer” products made by Asian factory slaves has masked the degeneration of local economic vitality, family life, behavioral norms, and social cohesion. That crackup is already underway in the currency wars aptly named by Jim Rickards, and you can bet that soon enough it will lead to the death of the 12,000-mile supply lines from China to WalMart — eventually to the death of WalMart itself (and everything like it). Another result will be the interruption of oil export supply lines.

The Iranian civilian plane carried humanitarian aids, including medical equipment, for the Yemeni people who have been under the Saudi-led airstrikes for almost a month now.

The plane was bound for Sana'a Airport, but was intercepted by the Saudi fighter jets before entering Yemen's airspace.

He lamented that planes and ships are not allowed into Yemen's ports and airports, and said, "Unfortunately, the Saudi government has prevented the dispatch of aid to Yemen."

Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation as Russians Pressed for Control of Uranium Company

The article, in January 2013, detailed how the Russian atomic energy agency, Rosatom, had taken over a Canadian company with uranium-mining stakes stretching from Central Asia to the American West. The deal made Rosatom one of the world’s largest uranium producers and brought Mr. Putin closer to his goal of controlling much of the global uranium supply chain.

But the untold story behind that story is one that involves not just the Russian president, but also a former American president and a woman who would like to be the next one.

At the heart of the tale are several men, leaders of the Canadian mining industry, who have been major donors to the charitable endeavors of former President Bill Clinton and his family. Members of that group built, financed and eventually sold off to the Russians a company that would become known as Uranium One.

Former Mossad Chief: Israel Should Not Meddle In US-Iran Talks

Halevy, speaking on a conference call sponsored by the Israel Policy Forum, said that the old line shed light on the Israeli government's current opposition to the Obama administration's ongoing negotiations with Iran over the country's nuclear program.

"That of course highlights the somewhat ridiculous situation we might be in if an Israeli effort to derail the entire process would succeed," the former intelligence chief said.

The S-300 line was a top Soviet-era long-range air defense system, it first entered use in Russia in the 1980s. It has never been used in combat anywhere, but is considered a higher end defensive system.

From Vietnam to ISIS: Canada needs to apologize

As Canadians pat themselves on the back for taking in Vietnamese refugees at the end of the 1970s, it is perhaps an appropriate time for Canada to apologize to the Vietnamese people for our collective role in creating the refugee flow in the first place.

Canada played a significant role in decimating their country (as well as Laos and Cambodia), aiding and abetting, for example, the permanent alteration of an entire people's gene pool through the production and supply of chemical and biological warfare agents for U.S. forces. The fallout was subsequent generations marked by grotesque physical deformities and severely retarded brain and motor function development. Indeed, Canada produced the chemical defoliant Agent Orange, a dioxin-laced carcinogen, 43 million litres of which were dumped by the U.S. Air Force (this on top of 30 million litres of related defoliants). U.S. soldiers who came home from Vietnam having been soaked in the stuff experienced similar horrors.

Over the past several years, there has been an alarming escalation of two very disturbing trends: an increasing preponderance of cyberattacks on complex infrastructure (whether domestic or abroad and whether instigated by external sources or internally, in a false falg attempt to evolve the issue to the benefit of various military-industrial complex benficiaries) as well as around the globe, and a largely unexpected return to a Cold War footing, one catalyzed by the violent US-sponsored overthrow of the former Kiev government and the eagerness to escalate the resultant conflict exhibited by the Kremlin.

If one extends said trends, one would arrive at a very unpleasant conclusion: due to the porous nature of modern technology and the increasing prevalence of cyberattacks, coupled with Cold War-era nuclear doctrines and rising tensions between the two superpowers who are now back to a Cold War regime, a nuclear war has suddenly emerged yet again as a very real threat.
