Anti-Islam Ads Will Soon Be Plastered On New York City Buses

The ads, which make heavy use of shocking pictures and bold text, attempt to frame Islam as a violent religion that radicalizes its followers. One of the more unsettling ads features the now-iconic image of American journalist James Foley, who was recently beheaded by ISIS militants, kneeling next to his executioner. The picture is placed alongside more benign image of a man rapping into a microphone with the caption “executioner who beheaded reporter before he became a jihadist.” Both images sit underneath the title “Yesterday’s moderate is today’s headline.”

Note: What a shame to see Jewish people condemning their sisters and brothers of the judeo-islamic faith.

Russia’s Leader Putin Rejects Ukrainian Separatists’ Aim to Become Part of Russia

The leader of the Ukrainian separatists says that their efforts to get Russia’s President Vladimir Putin to accept their territory as being a part of Russia have been firmly rejected by Putin’s Government; and, so, “We will build our own country.”

(This important statement from the rebel leader Andrei Purgin on Wednesday, September 17th, was inconspicuously buried halfway through an AP news story that focused instead on “East Ukraine Casualties.” It’s common for propagandistic news reports, such as characterize the U.S. media, to bury what’s important in the news story, and not even to headline that crucial information, when that information violates the regime’s propaganda. So: this information was buried, and was not headlined.)

No nuclear waste: Fuel of future produced at Russia's high-tech underground plant

Russia’s ‘Breakthrough’ energy project enables closed a nuclear fuel cycle and a future without radioactive waste. The first batch of MOX nuclear fuel has been manufactured for the world’s only NPP industrially power generating breeder reactors.

The first ten kilograms of the mixed-oxide fuel (MOX) - a mixture of plutonium and uranium dioxides (UO2 and PuO2), have been industrially produced by Russia’s nuclear monopoly, Rosatom, at the Mining & Chemical Combine (GKhK) in the Krasnoyarsk region.

A world first, tablets of the fuel of the future have been put on serial production and are destined for Russia’s next generation BN-800 breeder reactor (880 megawatts), currently undergoing tests at the Beloyarskaya nuclear power plant.

PM Fund Manager on Worst PM Manipulation in 14 Years: Something Ominous This Way Comes

Then, as Asia closes down the metals get hit again, starting in the fraudulent London market. Wash, rinse, repeat.

But the end is near. In fact, the ONLY difference for our financial system between now and 2008 is the $4 trillion in QE the Fed has printed and given to the Government and the banks.

World Wide Web inventor slams Internet fast lanes: ‘It’s bribery.’

In a visit to The Washington Post, on Thursday, Berners-Lee said that system is now in danger from Internet service providers (ISPs) who stand to amass too much power over what was intentionally built as a decentralized network — one where no single actor could dictate outcomes to everyone else.

Berners-Lee pushed back against opponents of net neutrality regulation who argue that applying new rules on ISPs is tantamount to regulating the Internet. But there's a difference between regulating providers of broadband and the services that run on top of it, said Berners-Lee. Strong net neutrality rules would help preserve that line dividing the two and limit the incentive of ISPs to meddle in the market for services.

The reality that the U.S. is an active supporter of unimaginable suffering may very well be the motivating force behind the U.S.’s adamant attempts to block the Palestinians from using any of the internationally recognized tools of accountability to hold Israel responsible, such as the International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Court. When an indigenous, stateless population is blocked access to opportunities for justice by superpowers like the U.S., something is wrong—deadly wrong.

U.S. to Bomb ISIS in Syria, but Censor ISIS Threat Just Across Mexican Border?

This is the security theater people are continuing to trade their liberty for here in America.

While Obama is busy finalizing plans to airstrike Syria, and the House of Reps just passed a resolution to arm, fund and train “appropriately vetted” Syrian rebels, in the meantime high level law enforcement have been given a censored alert bulletin that ISIS is operating a terrorist cell out of Juárez, just across the unsecured U.S.-Mexico border from El Paso, Texas and that potential terrorist attacks involving car bombs and other explosive devices are imminent.

Of course, the bill in question was actually an amendment that was cynically attached to a bill designed to continue funding for the federal government in the short-term, ensuring maximum support from members of the House.

Then, on Thursday September 19, the U.S. Senate followed suit by approving the plan as well. The support for the plan in the Senate was, as expected, bipartisan with members such as Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, John McCain, John Boehner, and Lindsey Graham voting “Yes” on the bill.

Happy Constitution Day! Ninth Circuit Affirms That It’s Illegal To Wear American Flag Shirts On Cinco De Mayo

It’s official: the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has issued an order declining a request for an en banc hearing in a case involving four students in at a California high school who were sent home for wearing American flag T-shirts on Cinco de Mayo.

The full slate of Ninth Circuit judges has thus agreed with a lower district court and with a trio of appellate judges that officials at Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, Calif. could censor students who wanted to wear flag-emblazoned shirts.

Widespread health violations at Foster Farms chicken factories, including mold, fecal matter and roaches

(NaturalNews) Thanks to a grassroots consumer advocacy group, one of the largest poultry producers in the Pacific Northwest has been exposed for committing hundreds of health and safety violations in less than just eight months. Referred to by The New York Times as "one of the nation's most powerful environmental groups," the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) blew the whistle on Foster Farms' operations after receiving documentation describing the company's failure to meet and maintain federally mandated food standards.

The environmental action group filed a Freedom of Information Act request on March 7, 2014, asking the U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) for documentation of any violations made by Foster Farms, a poultry company involved in every step of the process including hatcheries, feed mills and slaughterhouses.

The VA: Trouble from the start

This summer’s revelations about the Veterans Administration have tarnished the image of a cherished national institution. One of the nation’s largest health care systems, the VA provides a lifetime of medical services at no personal expense to military veterans. But recent events suggest the system is broken.

Reports from Phoenix exposed an organization rife with negligence and mismanagement, where sick veterans waited three months or more to be seen by a doctor, and administrators falsified these wait times to earn incentives for complying with timeliness mandates. Many have suffered from the latest VA debacle: ailing veterans in need of care, grieving family members who have reportedly lost loved ones because of delays; and Eric Shinseki, the four-star Army general who was forced to resign from his position as secretary of veterans affairs this past May.

Home Depot breach affected 56M debit, credit cards

Home Depot said Thursday that a data breach that lasted for months at its stores in the U.S. and Canada affected 56 million debit and credit cards, far more than a pre-Christmas 2013 attack on Target customers.

The size of the theft at Home Depot trails only that of TJX Companies' heist of 90 million records disclosed in 2007. Target's breach compromised 40 million credit and debit cards.

Dutch MH17 Investigation Omits US “Intel”

The absence of America’s so-called “intelligence” regarding the downing of Malaysia Airlines MH17 over Ukraine in a 34-page Dutch Safety Board preliminary report raises serious questions about the credibility and legitimacy of both America’s political agenda, and all agencies, organizations, and political parties currently behind it...

Canada’s Government Silencing Dissent: Academics

The appeal was made by 421 academics in an open letter addressed to Revenue Minister Kerry-Lynne Findlay, released on Sunday.The group of academics said authorities seem to have targeted educational charity Canadian Center for Policy Alternative (CCPA) because it frequently criticizes the administration’s agenda. “The decision to audit the CCPA is politically motivated to intimidate and silence its criticisms of your (Findlay’s) government policies,” said the group.

Japan puts on hold Russian sanctions in view of possible FM talks

The Japanese government has pushed back imposing new sanctions on Russia, which it planned to impose on Friday, in expectation of a possible meeting of foreign ministers next week.

The Japanese media reported Thursday of Tokyo’s intention to issue additional sanctions against Russia. The move was discussed on Tuesday at a National Security Council meeting and was expected to be announced on Friday, but according to The Japan Times the government is yet to make a final decision.

The implementation could be postponed until at least next week, when Japanese Foreign Minister Fumio Kishida may meet his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly in New York. Tokyo wants to give Moscow more time to respond to the reports of the looming sanctions, the newspaper said.

BBC's new "Head of Statistics" twists casualty figures to whitewash Gaza massacre

An open letter to the BBC's Director General, written by Palestine solidarity activists, is calling for the removal of BBC journalist Anthony Reuben from all reporting on Palestine following the publication of an online article in which he attempts to sanitize Israel's killing in Gaza. Reuben is the BBC's "Head of Statistics," a role created in February, he claims in his Linkedin profile, specifically for him.

Writing as "Head of Statistics" in August, Reuben authored an article for the BBC website headlined "Caution needed with Gaza casualty figures." When he wrote the article, 1,948 Palestinians had been killed in Israel's assault on Gaza, the majority of them men.

Reuben uses the fact that more men than women had been killed as an opportunity to argue that Israel was carrying out targeted attacks, aimed only at fighting men, and wasn't pursuing the wholesale slaughter of civilians and the wanton destruction of homes and infrastructure.

Briton handed suspended jail sentence as drug company GlaxoSmithKline is fined record £300 million in China over massive bribery scandal

A British former executive of drugmaker GlaxoSmithKline has been handed a three-year suspended prison sentence by a Chinese court in a high-profile bribery case that saw the company fined £300 million.

Mark Reilly, the former head of GSK's China operations, will also be deported, so it is likely he have left China before he has to serve prison time, according to state news agency Xinhua.

The court fined GSK 3 billion yuan (£300 million) for bribing doctors and hospitals to use its products, drawing to a close the high-profile corruption probe. The fine is the largest such penalty ever imposed by a Chinese court.

DHS Arrests, Imprisons Motorist For Invoking 5th Amendment, Deletes All His Videos (But Files Were Backed-Up!)

Witless Homeland Security Agents Unaware That Videos Of Their Crimes Were Backed-Up on Dropbox: An incredible video of a motorist at a warrantless internal border patrol checkpoint in Laredo Texas. After the military vet politely refused to answer questions and invoked his 5th Amendment rights, DHS officers claimed "now you are facing several charges...We don't have to have probable cause." They demanded he pull over to secondary, threatened to break his window, arrested him, cuffed him, and told him "Your phone will also be seized." They threw him in a cell after he demanded a lawyer. The DHS supervisor then threatened to have the man's concealed handgun license revoked. In a LibertyFight.com exclusive, the man explains "He then proceeded to tell me that if I deleted the video from my phone that I would have his word that he would not prosecute me and I would be free to leave. I had no problem deleting it because I have a dropbox that it downloaded to." Video and full story at link.

Hospitals making millions off 340B federal program meant to help needy

NASHVILLE — Hospitals and clinics across Tennessee and the United States are reportedly using revenue from one failing federal entitlement, known as the 340B program, to subsidize two other failing government programs — Medicare and Medicaid. The 340B Drug Pricing Program passed into law in 1992 and was designed to help poor and uninsured people get prescription drugs.

Problems with the program have gotten so severe they may cause pharmaceutical companies to discontinue important research and development programs into creating lifesaving drugs, said Sally Pipes, president of the Pacific Research Institute, a San Francisco-based think tank.

“It could be drugs for Alzheimer’s, cancer, diabetes, or Hepatitis C,” Pipes said.

“If these companies haven’t gotten the financial incentive to do what they’re doing then they’re going to stop and that’s going to hurt not just the people who are uninsured and low-income. All of us will be hurt,” Pipes said.

Russia has no plans to punish West with retaliatory sanctions — Putin

MOSCOW, September 18. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia will not pressure the West with sanctions but will pursue its own interests, President Vladimir Putin said on Thursday. The introduction of protective measures is not caused by the striving to punish our partners, Putin said. "First of all, we are thinking about our own interests and development goals," he added.

Putin believes that the Western countries that adopted sanctions against Russia in fact defied the principles of the World Trade Organization (WTO).

“The sanctions imposed on Russia are nothing but a departure from the basic WTO principles by some of our partners,” Putin said at a meeting of the State Council on Thursday. “They violate the principle of all countries’ equal access to the markets of goods and services. They ignore the most favored nation status in trade and the principle of fair and free competition.”

There was more bad news for Israel. The IDF launched a major air and ground military offensives and did not come close to destroying its adversaries’ leadership, organization, military capabilities and alliances. During the seven weeks of brutal attacks against the densely-populated civilian centers, Israel managed to put the Palestinian issue back on the Arab map, draw unprecedented global censure, and give wings to the Boycott, Divestment & Sanctions (BDS) campaign to undermine Israel’s economy. Israel also managed to unify Palestinian political parties across the board – a minor miracle – and make regional heroes out of the “Palestinian Resistance.” With every lash of Israel’s whip, Palestinians found new determination to break the siege of Gaza and end Israel’s occupation.

Scots have voted to stay in the UK, following an intense campaign which saw both pro-independence and pro-union campaign groups scraping for last-minute support. The ‘No’ campaign rallied 55 percent of votes against 45 percent ‘Yes’ votes.

Given how close both were in the runup to the referendum, at 10% margin in the final result can't be explained away that easily. Either the Scots chickened out or there was some serious electoral fraud going on. My money would be on the latter.

Still every now and then an interesting reminder of the Gaza war surfaces. In this case, by drowning. At first it seemed that the boat deliberately sunk off the Malta coast last week was another case of human trafficking gone from bad to worse. Horrible but unrelated to Israel/Palestine. Now reports have it that 250-300 of as many as 500 drowned were refugees from Gaza. They were attempting to escape what is left of the prison walls in Gaza.

US guilty of war crimes in Palestine

The U.S. is not a neutral mediator in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict; it is an active participant and is guilty of the crimes being committed by Israel against Palestinians, most recently, the mass killings and destruction Israel wrought on the Gaza Strip during the summer. The reality that the U.S. is an active supporter of unimaginable suffering may very well be the motivating force behind the U.S.’s adamant attempts to block the Palestinians from using any of the internationally recognized tools of accountability to hold Israel responsible, such as the International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Court. When an indigenous, stateless population is blocked access to opportunities for justice by superpowers like the U.S., something is wrong—deadly wrong.

Mazal Tov - a real gas chamber at last.

If this is the case - if Sobibor is indeed the only place where an “original gas chamber” can be witnessed, then the Holocaust Revisionists who were subject to State terror and persecution, let alone endless harassment by the hands of Zionist and anti alike, were telling the truth all along. The Gas Chambers that have been exhibited to tourists were built after the war. This revelation is both embarrassing yet reassuring. Truth liberates us after all.

Obama’s ISIS War is Not Only Illegal, it Makes George W. Bush Look Like a Constitutional Scholar

With each new President and each new war, we have witnessed those who hold the office act more and more like dictators, and less and less like constitutional executives.

One very important, and up until recently, overlooked point about Obama’s latest “war on ISIS” is that this is not at all just more of the same. This crosses yet another very important line of shadiness, and if we as as American public allow him to do so, we will suffer grave long-term consequences to our economic future as well as our liberties.

The Obama Administration is using the AUMF law to justify his latest war. If he is able to start a war with ISIS based on the AUMF, despite the fact that ISIS and al-Qaeda are not allies at all, he or a future President could similarly use the AUMF and the NDAA to imprison anyone, anywhere for an indefinite amount of time based on the same absurd non-claim.

Let this all sink in for a second. Do you still support these ISIS strikes?

Ireland leaves eurozone behind as exports boom

Ireland's economy is growing at an explosive pace not seen since the glory days of the Celtic Tiger, setting off a scramble for Dublin property.

Finance minister Michael Noonan said GDP surged 7.7pc in the year to June as rising exports to the US, Britain and China transform the former crisis-state into the eurozone’s star economy, reaching “escape velocity” as the rest of the currency bloc languishes in a slump.

Gross national product — a better gauge of Ireland’s internal economy – grew by 9pc, an astonishing pace for a mature industrial state. The turnaround comes less than a year after Ireland regained economic sovereignty, the first of the eurozone bail-out countries to emerge from its EU-IMF Troika regime.

John Embry - Something Seriously Wrong With Financial System

John Embry, Chief Investment Strategist at Sprott Asset Management, thinks gold price suppression is a key factor in global monetary policy. Embry contends, “If the gold price truly reflected what is really going on in monetary policy today, I think real interest rates would rise quite significantly. Given the amount of debt that is polluting the world banking system, to me, this is the end game, and that’s why it’s so vicious in terms of suppression right now. When this turns, it is going to change a lot of things. That’s why they are being so aggressive on maintaining pressure on the gold and silver prices. Silver is especially suppressed. I don’t think you can dig it out of the ground for less than $25 per ounce. It’s not like gold. There is not a huge above ground inventory.” Embry adds, “I have never seen it any more intense in terms of pressure in the paper market, which indicates we are near the end, and there is something seriously wrong with the system.”

Scotland’s Independence Vote Shows a Global Crisis of the Elites

When you get past the details of the Scottish independence referendum Thursday, there is a broader story underway, one that is also playing out in other advanced nations.

It is a crisis of the elites. Scotland’s push for independence is driven by a conviction — one not ungrounded in reality — that the British ruling class has blundered through the last couple of decades. The same discontent applies to varying degrees in the United States and, especially, the eurozone. It is, in many ways, a defining feature of our time.

The rise of Catalan would-be secessionists in Spain, the rise of parties of the far right in European countries as diverse as Greece and Sweden, and the Tea Party in the United States are all rooted in a sense that, having been granted vast control over the levers of power, the political elite across the advanced world have made a mess of things.

2-Ukraine president asks U.S. Congress for more aid

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko appealed for more U.S. assistance, including arms, in a warmly received appearance before the U.S. Congress on Thursday, but the latest offer of American help did not include the weaponry he is seeking.

"Please understand me correctly. Blankets, night-vision goggles are also important. But one cannot win the war with blankets." He added: "Even more, we cannot keep the peace with a blanket."

Drawing cheers from members who want to arm the former Soviet state, Poroshenko declared his forces "need more military equipment, both lethal and non-lethal -- urgently need."

Given the honor of a speech to the joint houses of Congress reflecting U.S. support for his country's fight against Russian-backed separatists, he said Washington should slap more sanctions on Moscow and give Ukraine a special security status.

Poroshenko appears to be bouncing back and forth between Obama and Putin trying to find the best deal, and in the process ruiing the trust others have in him.

American officials “take their orders from Tel Aviv; they have no loyalty to the American people, they have no loyalty to the American military and it’s their goal to have the US fight wars to the benefit of Israel at the expense of our treasure and lives of our young men and women in order to advance Israel’s goals,” Harris said.
