It's Getting Tough To Tell Planned Parenthood From THe Nazis

German SS officer and Auschwitz “physician” Josef Mengele once wrote, “There’s only one truth and one true beauty …There’s no ‘good’ or ‘bad’ in nature. There’s only ‘appropriate’ or ‘inappropriate’… Both sides receive equal chances. Nevertheless, nature provides a strainer. Things that are ‘inappropriate’ fall through since they lose in the struggle for survival.”

More lately, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood’s senior director for medical services, had this to say: “We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part. I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.”

It’s almost like Planned Parenthood is the strainer and babies, those inappropriate little consequences of life, fall through in the struggle for survival while the organs, the appropriate parts, survive and get sold at market. Ain’t progress grand?

The Horrifying American Roots of Nazi Eugenics

Hitler and his henchmen victimized an entire continent and exterminated millions in his quest for a co-called "Master Race."

But the concept of a white, blond-haired, blue-eyed master Nordic race didn't originate with Hitler. The idea was created in the United States, and cultivated in California, decades before Hitler came to power. California eugenicists played an important, although little known, role in the American eugenics movement's campaign for ethnic cleansing.

The Truth About MARGARET SANGER

At a March 1925 international birth control gathering in New York City, a speaker warned of the menace posed by the "black" and "yellow" peril. The man was not a Nazi or Klansman; he was Dr. S. Adolphus Knopf, a member of Margaret Sanger's American Birth Control League (ABCL), which along with other groups eventually became known as Planned Parenthood.

Sanger's other colleagues included avowed and sophisticated racists. One, Lothrop Stoddard, was a Harvard graduate and the author of The Rising Tide of Color against White Supremacy. Stoddard was something of a Nazi enthusiast who described the eugenic practices of the Third Reich as "scientific" and "humanitarian." And Dr. Harry Laughlin, another Sanger associate and board member for her group, spoke of purifying America's human "breeding stock" and purging America's "bad strains." These "strains" included the "shiftless, ignorant, and worthless class of antisocial whites of the South."

16 Year Old Stabbed in Jerusalem Pride Parade Succumbs to Wounds

Three days after being critically wounded by an ultra-Orthodox man that went on a stabbing rampage at Jerusalem's Gay Pride Parade, Shira Banki, a 16-year-old Israeli teen succumbed to her wounds Sunday afternoon. Five other people were wounded in the attack.

Police confirmed that the suspected stabber is Yishai Schlissel, a Haredi man from Modiin Ilit who stabbed three participants in the 2005 Gay Pride march. He was recently released from prison after serving a 10-year sentence.

The story picked up a lot of media attention, however, according to the dealer, the controversial commercial never actually hit the airwaves.

The US-China Standoff in the Indo-Asia-Pacific Region

The US sea services have released a new maritime strategy, a plan that describes how the Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard will design, organize, and employ naval forces in support its global dominance. The new strategy titled, “A Cooperative Strategy for 21st Century Seapower” highlighted “forward,” “engaged,” and “ready” as key words and kept the original theme of “ensuring our capability to intervene overseas.” It calls for increasing the Navy’s forward presence to 120 ships by 2020, up from about 97 ships today.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

China and Russia are doing deals to achieve what they want geopolitically; the US government is either at war, or preparing for more war, to achieve their geopolitical ends.

What is wrong with this picture?!? Bloody everything!!

And with the US government and corporate elites, it is never their kids who wind up dying, or maimed for life in these wars; it's always other people's children.

Please remember; there is a bill, which has been sitting in Committee for two years now, to revive the draft in this country. And this time, the draft will not only be coming for our young men: it will be coming for our young women as well.

This is The National Universal Service Act (H.R 747), introduced in 2013 by Charlie Rangel, Senior Representative from New York.

It would appear that Congress is waiting for the "right psychological/economic moment" to vote on it.

Planned Parenthood suggests ‘pooping’ on partner for teen ‘sexual exploration’

Just because the folks at Planned Parenthood don’t really do mammograms with the tax dollars they get doesn’t mean they’re not experts in some things. Take, for example, the Planned Parenthood counselor who told what she thought was a 15-year-old girl about the sexy side of defecating.

BREAKING: Blocked videos may prove aborted babies were born alive before organ harvesting, says Daleiden

In a meeting with their top leadership where their leadership admitted that they sometimes get fully intact fetuses shipped to their laboratory from the abortion clinics they work with, and that could be prima facie evidence of born alive infants. And so that’s why they’re trying to suppress that videotape and they’re very scared of it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Under Federal law, babies that survive a late-term abortion have to be kept alive. Failure to do so amounts to manslaughter.

Norman Finkelstein denounces Amnesty's whitewash on Gaza

Finkelstein writes:

In its introduction to Families under the Rubble, Amnesty exhorts Israel to “learn the lessons of this and previous conflicts and change its military doctrine and tactics for fighting in densely populated areas such as Gaza so as to ensure strict compliance with international humanitarian law.” But Israel has already learnt the lessons of fighting in Gaza, its military doctrine has incorporated these lessons, and the IDF brilliantly executed them. It requires exceptional mental discipline not to notice that ensuring “strict compliance with international law” has not been an Israeli concern, let alone a priority. Indeed, the whole point of OPE was to leave “families under the rubble.”

Hillary Clinton’s Scandalous Record

Kathleen Willey is a former White House volunteer. She said Bill Clinton sexually assaulted her during his first term in office - in his Oval Office private study.

She created “A Scandal a day” web site. Her book titled “Target: Caught in the Crosshairs of Bill and Hillary Clinton” became a best seller.

Willey created her web site to alert Americans about “the potential danger of Hillary Clinton becoming president.” Among an array of rogue presidential aspirants, she stands out as especially abhorrent - a menace to world peace, stability and security as well as what remains of homeland freedoms.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The stench of total, utter corruption which has been the leitmotif of the lives of the Clintons will follow this woman to the end of her days.

Joe Biden very likely to challenge Hillary for Democratic nomination

Dowd, who is close to the Biden family, wrote in her Sunday Times column that Beau Biden the VP’s 46-year old beloved son who died of brain cancer in May urged his dad on his deathbed to make the run.

Dowd writes “He (Beau) had a mission: He tried to make his father promise to run, arguing that the White House should not revert to the Clintons and that the country would be better off with Biden values.”

Dowd writes that meetings have been taking place among Biden friends and family.

Biden had been holding meetings at his residence, she wrote “talking to friends, family and donors about jumping in” to challenge Mrs. Clinton in Iowa and New Hampshire, the first two nominating states. Dowd wrote.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Democrats are realizing they are standing on the bridge of the USS Clintanic, overloaded with Hillary's political baggage, taking on water, down by the bow, and headed for the bottom. Sticking with Hillary guarantees a GOP White House.

TIME TO INVOKE THE DEATH PENALTY IN ISRAEL

In Israel, capital punishment is allowed only during and only for genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes, crimes against the Jewish people, treason, and certain crimes under military law during wartime. The current Arab-Israel conflict is considered a war, and the committing of any of the crimes can result in the death penalty. Israel inherited the British Mandate of Palestine code of law, which included the death penalty for several offenses, but in 1954, Israel abolished the penalty for murder. (FROM)

BUT ...

When an 18 month old is brutally burnt to death by rampaging settlers in the Occupied West Bank, is there any other punishment that fits the crime?

We just sued the Justice Department over the FBI’s secret rules for using National Security Letters on journalists

Today we filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Justice Department over their unpublished rules for using National Security Letters and so-called informal “exigent letters” to conduct surveillance of journalists.

Last year, after a backlash stemming from the surveillance of Associated Press and Fox News journalists, the Justice Department released new guidelines that supposedly barred the government from issuing subpoenas to journalists unless very high standards were met. The rules were generally a victory for the press. However, buried in the news reports about the change was the fact that the Justice Department reportedly thinks the media guidelines do not apply when issuing National Security Letters (NSLs). As the New York Times wrote at the time:

More parents turn to homeschooling: 62% increase in the last decade

More parents than ever before are choosing to homeschool their children, driving a movement that’s grown by 62 percent in the last decade.

The National Catholic Register reports that recent data from the U.S. Department of Education shows explosive growth in homeschooling among American families, particularly in the last 10 years, when the number of students between the ages of 5 and 17 went from 1.09 million in 2003 to 1.77 million in 2012.

Homeschooled students now represent about 3.4 percent of the school-age population, a percentage that’s increased significantly for a variety of reasons.

The first one would be to have them get an individualized education that meets the needs of each student; the second was that we were drawn to a classical curriculum; and the third would be flexibility in time with family,” Fredericksburg, Va. homeschool mother Christina Banks told the news site of her reasons for educating her children at home.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If Mike and I would have had kids, home schooling would most probably have been the way we would have gone.

Home schooled kids tend to score significantly higher on college entrance exams, and do better in college than do those who have attended public school.

11 RED FLAG EVENTS THAT JUST HAPPENED AS WE ENTER THE PIVOTAL MONTH OF AUGUST 2015

Are you ready for what is coming in August? All over America, economic, political and social tensions are building, and the next 30 days could turn out to be pivotal. In July, we saw things start to turn. As you will read about below, a major six year trendline for the S&P 500 was finally broken this month, Chinese stocks crashed, commodities crashed, and debt problems started erupting all over the planet. I fully expect that this next month (August) will be a month of transition as we enter an extremely chaotic time in the fall and winter. Things are unfolding in textbook fashion for another major global financial crisis in the months ahead, and yet most people refuse to see what is happening. In their blind optimism, they want to believe that things will somehow be different this time. Well, the coming months will definitely reveal who was right and who was wrong. The following are 11 red flag events that just happened as we enter the pivotal month of August 2015…

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As we always say, looking at information like this, please don't panic; PLAN.

Make sure you have long-term storable food, water, and extra medication for yourselves, your family, and your pets.

Other than what you absolutely need to pay your bills, please don't have any more money in the bank than that. Liquidity is going to be key in the coming months.

Make sure you have a bug-out plan, and if you have kids in public school, know what the ground rules are for pulling them out when you need to so that the family can be reunited quickly.

Two way radios, and whatever you feel comfortable using, in terms of self defense will be important as well.

I do not want to be Mrs. Chicken Little of Oahu, 2015; but having said that, folks, something wicked this way comes, economically, and it is high time to put your house in order so that you will be able to survive.

Over the years, we have repeatedly poked fun at the transformation of Venezuela into a "socialist utopia" - an economy in a state of terminal collapse, where the destruction of the currency (one black market Bolivar is now worth 107 times less than the official currency's exchange rate) and the resulting hyperinflation is only matched be barren wasteland that local stores have transformed into now that conventional supply chains are irreparably broken.

Obama Appointee And Bundler Blocks More Video Releases By Group Behind Planned Parenthood Sting

A federal judge late Friday granted a temporary restraining order against the release of recordings made at an annual meeting of abortion providers. The injunction is against the Center for Medical Progress, the group that has unveiled Planned Parenthood’s participation in the sale of organs harvested from aborted children.

Judge William H. Orrick, III, granted the injunction just hours after the order was requested by the National Abortion Federation.

Orrick was nominated to his position by hardline abortion supporter President Barack Obama. He was also a major donor to and bundler for President Obama’s presidential campaign. He raised at least $200,000 for Obama and donated $30,800 to committees supporting him, according to Public Citizen.

NAVAL OFFICER THAT STOPPED ACTIVE SHOOTER TO FACE CHARGES FOR DISCHARGING WEAPON

On the morning of July 16th, 2015, Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez, a 24-year-old naturalized U.S. citizen from Kuwait, went on a bloody shooting-spree at two federal offices. First, he shot up the military recruiting center on Old Lee Highway in Chattanooga, and then sped 7-miles away to perform a second attack on the U.S. Naval and Marine Reserve Center on Amnicola Highway.

At the second location, Abdulazeez crashed his rented Ford Mustang through a gate and began shooting outside the U.S. Naval and Marine Reserve Center, indiscriminately firing at any target he saw. Although the building contained dozens of trained U.S. servicemen, Department of Defense regulations require them to be disarmed on federal property. Abdulazeez held the upper hand and murdered several unarmed marines, and continued his attack for several minutes until a secretly-armed Naval officer engaged him in a firefight, along with responding Chattanooga police officers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would seriously suggest that this story be shared with ANYONE contemplating enlisting in the US's Armed Forces.

Israeli Missteps Take a Toll

How the mighty have fallen! Was it really such a short time ago that Israel could demand that the United States jump, and the U.S.’s immediate response was ‘how high’? Was it in just the last year, that whatever Israel wanted from the U.S., all it had to do was hint at it, and the desired prize, whatever it was, would be immediately delivered? From vetoes in the United Nations, to bombs to kill Palestinians, to lies about Israeli security risks, to defending genocide, if Israel wanted it, the U.S. delivered it.

JUDAH BENJAMIN: THE BIG JEW OF THE CONFEDERACY

When we think of the Confederacy, the big names that automatically come to mind are the three legends carved into the side of Georgia's Stone Mountain: President Jefferson Davis, General Robert E. Lee and General Stonewall Jackson. Significant figures for sure, but in the grander power-scheme of things, these men, including President Davis himself, were outranked by Judah P. Benjamin.

The fact that Benjamin's name is so relatively unknown is, ironically, testament to the awesome "behind-the-scenes" power that he wielded. Unfortunately for the South (and the North), Benjamin's influence served neither of the Americas. His loyalties lay elsewhere - in Rothschild's London!

PM to make direct appeal to US Jews in bid to thwart Iran deal

In the latest of a series of attempts to persuade US voters to push their legislators to reject the Iran nuclear deal, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will deliver an address to the North American Jewish community next week to discuss the agreement, which he staunchly opposes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu:

1. Congress never listens to anything the American people have to say; only to the corporations which fund them, covertly and overtly.

Your friends in the American defense industry, which would LOVE to see the US start a war with Iran, no matter what horrific carnage would happen to both countries, would probably be most helpful here.

2. Opposition to this legislation is NOT veto-proof.

So sir, what do you intend to do when the Iran treaty is ratified by the US Congress?!? That is a question which keeps me up at night.

U.S. Names New Targets of Sanctions Over Ukraine

The Obama administration on Thursday identified 26 additional people and institutions that will be subject to economic sanctions as part of an effort to maintain pressure on the Russian government over its support of insurgents fighting in Ukraine.

The new actions are aimed at individuals or entities that American officials said had been helping previously identified targets to evade sanctions. Eight of the new targets are linked to Gennady Timchenko, a billionaire Russian businessman who is known to have ties to President Vladimir V. Putin.

Also identified as subject to sanctions are four officials who served in the government of former President Viktor F. Yanukovych of Ukraine. Five operators of Crimean ports and one sea ferry operator are also identified. Russia annexed the Crimean Peninsula last year after Mr. Yanukovych was deposed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Does the NYT never tire of invoking "the big lie"?!?

Crimea, originally annexed from Russia by Kruschiev, realized that with the putsch against Yanukovych, there was no legitimate government in Kiev.

At that point, in a free and fair election, with international observers, Crimea held a referendum to return to the Russian Federation, which was voted into effect, and accepted by the Russian Federation.

Russia has done nothing wrong here.

With Europe suffering under the weigh of anti-Russian sanctions, Europe may decide to end those sanctions unilaterally, no matter what the US government does; the cracks are already starting to show.

And neither DC nor Kiev have been able to prove incontrovertibly, that Russians are supporting the separatists in Eastern Ukraine.

This is window dressing, pure and simple, for a pig-headedly, ham-fistedly vile attempt to goad Putin into doing something stupid. The gentleman may be many things, but stupid is absolutely not one of them.

Failing this, we may well see a US-orchestrated false flag to be blamed on Russia, as the reason for military conflict against it. However, I would strongly caution the few adults in the bowels of power to consider this very carefully.

At this point, the US military doesn't have the money, the manufacturing, or troop strength to insure a successful outcome in a conventional war against Russia; and that is what makes the military scenario so scarily dangerous.

CISA: The Dirty Deal Between Google and the NSA That No One Is Talking About

One of the things that civil liberties activists like to lament about is that the general public seems to care more about Google and Facebook using their personal data to target advertising than the government using it to target drone strikes.

The reality is that both types of abuse are dangerous, and they work hand in hand.

It's hard to find a more perfect example of this collusion than in a bill that's headed for a vote soon in the U.S. Senate: the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act, or CISA.

CISA is an out and out surveillance bill masquerading as a cybersecurity bill. It won't stop hackers. Instead, it essentially legalizes all forms of government and corporate spying.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Upon taking office, President Obama originally promised the American people "...the most transparent Administration in history."

With legislation like this getting passed, can someone please tell me: where the HELL did that administration go?!?

And please don't tell me Obama will veto this, because he won't.

The Look of Silence: Finding our Humanity in the Face of Genocide

Our challenge today is to harness the good in ourselves, to be more humane, more gentle, more caring, to treat each being in our world as someone of infinite worth. As technology gives us access to the far reaches of the globe, we must see that infinite worth in a man or woman in Sumatra who now has to live next to the man who tortured and killed their loved one, as we also strive to see it in our neighbor at home.

When we use atrocity to inspire us to act, to ask the right questions, to reach across the globe and try to stop someone from being killed or suffering, our world will become a more livable one. Only then will we be able to hope to turn back the tide on genocide.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I had the opportunity to hear Bishop Tutu speak at St. John's Episcopal Church many, many years ago, about peace and human justice; and still today, he is an indefatigable campaigner for those values.

Let us all take a moment to embrace the values expressed in the first paragraph I copied from this article; I can promise you that the world, both immediate, and universal, CAN be a better place for that action.

I am no Pollyanna; however, I do know that kindness and compassion can be contagious!! :-)

What has been going on in occupied Palestine in many ways is crime against humanity

Israeli soldiers have killed a 17-year-old Palestinian boy on the Gaza border.

The teenager’s death follows an arson attack in the West Bank in which a Palestinian toddler was burned alive. A huge crowd gathered on Friday night to mourn the boy’s death.

Puerto Rico To Default After Missing Payment

Puerto Rico will miss a payment on debt due Aug. 1, the governor's chief of staff said on Friday, an event that will be considered a default by investors as the commonwealth lurches towards what could be one of the largest U.S. municipal debt restructurings in history.

The island faces a number of debt payments that day but had signaled in recent weeks that it may miss the $58 million payment on Public Finance Corporation (PFC) bonds.

"Tomorrow is Aug. 1 and we don't have the money," Puerto Rico's governor's chief of staff Victor Suarez told journalists in San Juan. "The PFC payment will not be made this weekend. It was not consigned."

Suarez also said the government only had enough cash to operate until November if no additional measures are taken to increase cashflow.

The PFC missed payment will mark the first by the commonwealth. According to a 2014 bond offering statement, Puerto Rico has never defaulted on the payment of principal or interest of debt.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It will be interesting to see how American financial markets respond to this on Monday.

NYC landlord tries to reduce damages payment by saying Latino toddler wouldn’t go to college anyway

A Federal judge rejected a Brooklyn landlord’s attempt to use a Latino child’s ethnicity to justify reducing his liability in a lead poisoning case, the New York Times reported.

Mark Kimpson’s attorney sought to reduce the $2 million awarded to the boy and his mother by a jury earlier this month, saying the child was less likely to attend college and earn a degree even if he had not been stricken by lead poisoning while living in the family’s Bedford-Stuyvesant apartment. Elevated levels of lead were found in his blood just after his first birthday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That this attorney thought for one moment that this argument would be accepted by the judge reminds me of one of comedian Ron White's classic stand-up routine lines: "You can't fix stupid!"

“We all know people who are addicted to alcohol or drugs. These people are addicted to money,” Sanders said earlier this year, according to MSNBC. The result? A “philosophical war being waged against the middle-class and working families.”

HISTORY IS REPEATING – GERMAN GOVERNMENT LAUNCHES INVESTIGATION OF JOURNALISTS FOR TREASON

If it were up to the Federal Attorney General and the President of the German Domestic Security Agency, two of our reporters would soon be in prison for at least two years. Today, we were officially informed about investigations against our Markus Beckedahl, Andre Meister and an unknown“ party. The accusation: Treason.

Germany has opened a treason investigation into a news website a broadcaster said had reported on plans to increase state surveillance of online communications.

The public broadcaster ARD reported Netzpolitik.org had published an article on how the BfV was seeking extra funding to increase its online surveillance, and another about plans to set up a special unit to monitor social media, both based on leaked confidential documents.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When telling the truth becomes a crime against the state which makes it illegal, that society is in DEEP trouble.

The US government has already gone way down this dark path; Snowden can NEVER return home without being flung into a prison cell for the rest of his life, and he knows it.

RUSSIA SHOOTS DOWN US STEALTH COUP

That is because the United States can no longer hide the fact that it is behind these protests and often, even hide their role in the armed elements that are brought in covertly to give targeted governments their final push out the door. Nations have learned to identify, expose, and resist this tactic, and like Adolf Hitler and the Nazi regime’s tactic of Blitzkrieg or “lighting war,” once appropriate countermeasures are found, the effectiveness of lighting fast, overwhelming force be it military or political, is rendered impotent.

This was most recently observed in Armenia during the so-called “Electric Yerevan” protests – Yerevan being the capital of Armenia, and “electric” in reference to the alleged motivation of protesters – rising electric prices.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These alleged "color revolutions" (read; an attempt to destablilise yet another country to put into the US/private central bank orbit) are absolutely laughable, if it were not for the significant numbers of lives lost in them.

Right now, I am looking at Russia and China making deals to achieve their objectives, while the US way is either waging outright or proxy war, or creating destabilisation, to achieve what its policy makers want.

What's wrong with this picture?!?

Bloody everything!!

Lawsuit accuses 22 banks of manipulating US Treasury auctions

Twenty-two financial companies that have served as primary dealers of U.S. Treasury securities were sued in federal court on Thursday, in what was described as the first nationwide class action alleging a conspiracy to manipulate Treasury auctions that harmed both investors and borrowers.

The State-Boston Retirement System, the pension fund for Boston public employees, accused Bank of America's Merrill Lynch unit, Citigroup, Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs, HSBC, JPMorgan Chase, UBS, and 14 other defendants of illegally trying to profit on the sale of Treasury bills, notes and bonds at investors' expense.

Newest Remote Car Hacking Raises More Questions About Reporter’s Death

As readers of WhoWhatWhy know, our site has been one of the very few continuing to explore the fiery death two years ago of investigative journalist Michael Hastings, whose car left a straight segment of a Los Angeles street at a high speed, jumped the median, hit a tree, and blew up.

Our original report described anomalies of the crash and surrounding events that suggest cutting-edge foul play—that an external hacker could have taken control of Hastings’s car in order to kill him. If this sounds too futuristic, a series of recent technical revelations has proven that “car hacking” is entirely possible. The latest just appeared this week.

FLASHBACK: Aborted fetus cells used in beauty creams

A San Francisco cosmetics company has ignited an outcry among pro-lifers for including an unexpected ingredient in its anti-aging creams: skin-cell proteins from an aborted fetus.

Donald Trump Reveals His Plan for Gun-Free Zones

In a recent interview, Trump said if he were to become president, he would abolish gun-free zones on military bases, a policy enacted under Bill Clinton. Instead, Trump would require “that soldiers remain armed and on alert at our military bases.”

“President Clinton never should have passed a ban on soldiers being able to protect themselves on bases. America’s Armed Forces will be armed,” Trump said in an interview with gun blog Ammoland.

Trump said he does “not support expanding background checks,” claiming they simply don’t work.

“They make it more difficult for law abiding citizens to acquire firearms while consistently failing to stop criminals from getting guns,” Trump said. “We should re-examine our policy to make sure that these prohibitions do not impede law abiding citizens from exercising their Second Amendment rights.”

US ARMS SALES TO SAUDI ARABIA CONTRIBUTING TO CONFLICT IN YEMEN

The United States’ weapons and logistical support for Saudi Arabia’s military campaign in Yemen signals that Washington is backing Riyadh’s goal to crush Houthi rebels despite UN calls for a political solution, experts told Sputnik on Friday.

The United States is providing intelligence and refueling support to enable a four-month-old Saudi-led air campaign against Houthi rebels and allied forces.

On Thursday, Washington decided to provide Riyadh with $500 million in ammunition to replenish stocks used up in the campaign.

“The Saudis want an extended war that leads to a Houthi defeat, and the United States is effectively backing that strategy with the arms deal,” Charles Schmitz, a specialist on Yemen at the Middle East Institute told Sputnik.

“The Saudis don’t want a political settlement; they want a Houthi surrender,” he added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With its oil revenues decreasing substantially, and its own economy in decline, sparking some demonstrations, even to the point of riots (previously unheard of in this country), Saudi Arabia may do well to re-think this entire military misadventure.

With the weaponry purchased from the US, the Saudi military has been hitting schools, hospitals, and housing; all illegal under international law.

This is going to be a long, bitter, and protracted military campaign, about which we in the West hear virtually nothing about, and well may last for years, as there is no real hope of a Houthi surrender.

Ultimately, my sympathies here lie with the Yemenite people, who want some degree of control of, and representation by, their government, however that is going to shake out in the future.

Total Poll Fail Ukraine: Putin Leading By 84%

A new information tragedy in Ukraine. It started so innocently: the nationally conscious patriotic website Nedelya.ua organized a survey. The question was: which politician would you entrust with governing your country?
41664 votes were cast. The results were a knock-out blow for the organizers--a full and crushing victory for Vladimir Putin. Treason!

J.Hawk's Comment: I'd add that even it was "bots and trolls" voting for Putin, where is the pro-Poroshenko/Yatsenyuk/Lyashko/Timoshenko enthusiasm? Right? That, in my view, is what speaks in favor of its authenticity, the fact that none (NONE, KARL!) of Ukraine's leaders elicit respect, admiration, emulation, gratitude, love, or even mere tolerance. No, they are all hated or, worse, despised. Putin, on the other hand, commands respect, grudging or otherwise, even in the US.

Earlier Thursday, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Director Dan Ashe said efforts to contact Palmer had been unsuccessful and urged him on Twitter to get in touch.

Mandated Vaccines: Finding Our Path to Freedom

By Rosanne Lindsay ND

In June, California became the first state to mandate vaccination for all children attending public and private schools. Similar mandates will apply to all adults working in daycare settings. There are currently 58 bills in 24 different states that would limit your rights when it comes to vaccines, or lose your job. A proposed Federal law will attempt to jab the entire nation.

While we were sleeping, presidential candidates began practicing medicine without a license, declaring no one has a right to refuse vaccination, meanwhile openly accepting bribes from the pharmaceutical industry. In Australia, “‘conscientious objectors’ to childhood vaccination will have their childcare and family tax payments stopped.”

Windows 10: Man updates PC and wakes up to find porn slideshow on repeat

An unfortunate Windows 10 user was left red-faced after upgrading to Microsoft's new operating system - when his pornography catalogue began blinking across his screen in a slideshow on repeat.

Excited to upgrade to the new format, the computer-lover upgraded to the new software and left it to 'do its thing', only to be woken by his wife asking why his collection of pornographic images was rotating on the desktop view.

The unfortunate user appears to have fallen foul of feature of the new operating system which pulls through images saved in one of the default folders to be used as a slideshow.

New study shows Spain’s “Google tax” has been a disaster for publishers

A study commissioned by Spanish publishers has found that a new intellectual property law passed in Spain last year, which charges news aggregators like Google for showing snippets and linking to news stories, has done substantial damage to the Spanish news industry.

In the short-term, the study found, the law will cost publishers €10 million, or about $10.9 million, which would fall disproportionately on smaller publishers. Consumers would experience a smaller variety of content, and the law "impedes the ability of innovation to enter the market."

The study concludes that there's no "theoretical or empirical justification" for the fee

Houses, hotel and shops approved on land of Islamic cemetery

Israeli officials have approved the construction of a massive complex which will include 200 houses, shops and a 480 room hotel in Jerusalem. The problem is this; the land that the complex will be built upon is already part of an Islamic cemetery. Although the land cited for the build is already home to a car-park and school, earlier excavations showed that bones and graves remain underneath.

'We have to stop having a soft heart'

People coming to live in New Zealand would need to take out personal medical insurance for at least 10 years, under a policy being considered by NZ First.

The party's leader Winston Peters has expressed his support for the idea, saying "we have to stop having a soft heart and a head to match".

"You can climb off a plane in New Zealand and be in hospital the next day," Mr Peters said. "We have long waiting lists...it seems to me to be only reasonable and fair."

NZ First is holding its annual convention in Rotorua, with delegates considering a number of remits. If accepted, they will be examined by caucus.

The Rodney delegation has put forward policy that, "all new settlers in New Zealand must take out personal medical insurance cover for a period of 10 years minimum".

Mr Peters said that if reciprocal arrangements existed that allowed Kiwis to get medical cover in a new arrival's country-of-origin, they would not need insurance.

Community leaders condemn 'bogus' witch doctors, call for investigation

Auckland's Indian community leaders have called for an investigation into how so-called Hindu witch doctors have been able to work in New Zealand, while condemning local Indian media for allowing such practices to be advertised in their products.

Around 20 people gathered for a community meeting in Mt Roskill, Auckland, this afternoon to tackle the issue of witch doctors targeting the vulnerable in their community.

It comes after fears were raised of so-called 'witch doctors' and 'healers' in south Auckland who have charged thousands of dollars in return for promised financial fortunes and love-life successes that don't eventuate.

Speakers at today's meeting condemned the practice, saying many of the 'astrologers' were targeting vulnerable people.

They called on those in the Hindu community to avoid using the services of so-called priests, witch doctors and astrologers.

Disappointment as TPPA talks break down

Trade Minister Tim Groser says he is disappointed a landmark free-trade pact stumbled after talks broke down in Hawaii.

Negotiations among 12 Pacific nations failed to reach a conclusion.

"Good progress was made this week, but a number of challenging issues remain, including intellectual property and market access for dairy products", Mr Groser said.

"We will continue to work toward a successful conclusion. This is about getting the best possible deal for New Zealand, not a deal at any cost."

Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations are aimed at erasing most tariffs and other barriers to trade and investment among participants.

It would also clarify and standardize trade rules, making it easier for companies to sell goods and services in the Pacific Rim.

The wide-ranging discussions have addressed tariffs on autos, rice and dairy products, as well as intellectual property protections for pharmaceuticals.

Legal challenge to be lodged surrounding TPP

A legal challenge will be lodged in the High Court next week over the secrecy around the Trans Pacific Partnership negotiations.

Outspoken TPPA critic Professor Jane Kelsey was met with a blanket refusal when she made an Official Information Act request to Trade Minister Tim Groser back in January.

She made the request on the back of a decision from the EU Ombudsman that the consequences of a deal being discussed between the EU and the US, Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), were so great that the people of Europe needed to see much more detail, and produced a long list of what needed to be produced.

When her OIA request was denied, the Minister's refusal had to be reviewed by the Ombudsman before any court action could be lodged. Professor Kelsey only received that Ombudsman's report on Wednesday - four and a half months later.

NSA pledges to eventually delete old bulk surveillance records. Oh sure, we can trust them, right?

The National Security Agency will eventually delete the trove of millions of telephone records it controversially amassed under the Patriot Act, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence announced Monday.

Destruction of the bulk surveillance records, which the NSA retained for a five-year period, won’t be immediate, but the ODNI said it has determined that the NSA will not be allowed to maintain access to them. Their deletion would mark a victory for privacy advocates, though it’s unclear exactly when that will begin.
