U.S. Special Operations forces killed a senior ISIS commander during a daring raid intended to capture him in eastern Syria overnight Friday to Saturday, U.S. government officials said.

Fox News Correspondent Calls Amtrak Engineer’s Sexuality “A Factor” In Deadly Crash

Bostian is a gay man—cited by some outlets as a “gay activist” because he was active in the fight against California’s Proposition 8. In 2012, he told The Midtown Gazette: “It’s kind of insulting to have to beg people for my right to marry. I feel like we shouldn’t even have to have this fight.”

His sexuality hasn’t been reported on by major media organizations because it’s completely irrelevant.

But it is oddly “interesting” to anti-gay bigots, who’ve been inferring Bostian’s sexuality somehow “caused” the horrific derailment.

Right Wing Watch notes a few extremists linking the two, none as awful as Sandy Rios, the governmental affairs director of the hate group American Family Association and regular Fox News contributor. Today on her AFA radio program, she cited Bostian’s sexuality as “a factor” in the crash.

New York Times sells Israel’s next war

How hard is it for the Israeli military to launch an unprovoked war with its neighbor by casting itself as a victim of barbarianism, rallying international support and even apologizing in advance and exonerating itself for killing innocent civilians? It seems it only takes one phone call to the New York Times.

That’s right, the world’s most powerful newspaper has just published an article wholly inspired and almost entirely narrated by the unverifiable and belligerent claims of Israeli military sources. The article “Israel Says Hezbollah Positions Put Civilians at Risk” casts no serious journalistic or responsible doubt on these Israeli claims made by a military institution that has engaged in wars that have killed tens of thousands of civilians in the past.

The author, Isabel Kershner warns that Israel says “…many Lebanese civilians will probably be killed, and that it should not be considered Israel’s fault.”

Battlefield: Black Sea

While the war in Ukraine has raged on for more than a year, the growing conflict between the US-NATO and Russia has taken on new dimensions. From economic warfare waged by the West in the form of sanctions, to the diplomatic rows over the commemoration of Victory Day in Moscow, more and more it seems that relations between East and West are fraying beyond repair. Though it may seem that this conflict is escalating into simply an extension of what was once known as the Cold War, the potential exists for a hot war of global dimensions.

US Empire - American Exceptionalism Is No Shining City On a Hill

The concept of American exceptionalism is as old as the United States, and it implies that the country has a qualitative difference from other nations. This notion of being special gives Americans the sense that playing a lead role in world affair is part of their natural historic calling. However there is nothing historically exceptional about this: the Roman empire also viewed itself as a system superior to other nations and, more recently, so did the British and the French empires.

Raid on Venice Beach Church Targets Illegal Kombucha Tea

The actor-turned-guru, Andrew Keegan, set up Full Circle's headquarters in an old Venice Beach, California, church last fall, and this would all just be a charming little fact ripe for the Tweeting were it not for meddling state alcohol control agents. Last Friday, an undercover officer from the state's Alcohol Beverage Control (ABC) "infiltrated the temple," Vice reports, "clearing the way for a 9 PM incursion by five officers." What manner of crazy bootlegged hooch were the agents there to confiscate?

The Never-Ending Nakba - From Gaza to Gaza Camp

Immediately preceding the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, the country that now demands others acknowledge it’s “right to exist” depopulated and destroyed over 400 Palestinian towns and villages, forcing the inhabitants to flee for their lives. The new state planted trees and established national parks over the ruins of dozens of villages where Israelis now spend quiet afternoons and enjoy picnics in the shade. The cries of the dead are drowned out by the laughter of children playing on the remains of ancient homes. The Arabic names of the destroyed villages have been erased. The Israeli state still clings to the myth of “A land without a people, for a people without a land,” and deny the Nakba took place, just as many Americans still deny an indigenous genocide in “our” country. Zochrot, an Israeli NGO, has identified and mapped every destroyed Palestinian village and town in order to reeducate the Israeli public. Their message is largely ignored.

U.S. Farmers In “Dire Straits”: JPM Warns Of Imminent Liquidity Crunch

Despite the government’s ‘advice’ to young debt-laden students, the tragedy of the American farmer continues with worryingly pessimistic views on the future of the industry.

With farmland prices falling for the first time in almost 30 years, credit conditions are weakening dramatically and the Kansas City Fed warns that persistently low crop prices and high input costs reduced profit margins and increased concerns about future loan repayment capacity, and JPMorgan concludes, the industry is currently in dire straits with the potential for a liquidity crunch for farmers into 2016.

Not so long ago, US farmland – whose prices were until recently rising exponentially – was considered by many to be the next asset bubble. Then, almost overnight, the fairy-tale ended, and as reported in February, US farmland saw its first price drop since 1986.

How to Fight Western Propaganda

First they manufacture monstrous lies, and then they tell us that we should be objective!

Is love objective; is passion?

Are dreams defendable, logically and philosophically?

When a house is attacked by brigands, when a village is overran by gangsters, when smoke, fire and cries for help are coming from every corner, should we award ourselves with the luxury of time to calculate, analyze and aim at complete logical, ethical, holistic and objective solutions?

I strongly believe no! We are obliged to fight those who are burning our dwellings, to hit with full force those who are attempting to rape our women, and to confront fire with fire when innocent beings are slaughtered.

Putin stated bluntly that in his view the West would only be content in having a Russia weak, suffering and begging from the West, something clearly the Russian character is not disposed to. Then a short way into his remarks, the Russian President stated for the first time publicly something that Russian intelligence has known for almost two decades but kept silent until now, most probably in hopes of an era of better normalized Russia-US relations.

Putin stated that the terror in Chechnya and in the Russian Caucasus in the early 1990’s was actively backed by the CIA and western Intelligence services to deliberately weaken Russia. He noted that the Russian FSB foreign intelligence had documentation of the US covert role without giving details.

FLASHBACK - Israeli Spying: The Mother of all Scandals

So here is the mother of all scandals.

For two years, the FBI has suspected AIPAC of spying for a foreign country, and for those two years (and for decades before) that group suspected of spying for Israel has been reshaping the US Congress for the benefit of a foreign government.

And THAT is the mother of all scandals.

Think about that as billions of your tax dollars flow to Israel while your roads and schools crumble and decay and services are cut.

Think about that as the coffins come home with your loved ones inside.

Think about that when you and a million of your fellow citizens march down the streets of America opposing wars built on lies and deceptions and wonder why the government just doesn’t want to listen to you any more.

Ukraine has reduced the estimated cost of the construction of a so-called “Wall” project along its border with much-feared Russia.

A new group of leaders from the military industrial complex has formed seeking to pressure potential presidential candidates into supporting a ‘strong foreign policy’.

Americans for Peace, Prosperity, and Security (APPS) has been established by former House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers. It wants to be the “premiere national security and foreign policy organization during the 2016 debate”, and to “help elect a president who supports American engagement and a strong foreign policy”.

APPS is seeking to hold a candidate forum later this year.

The organization refuses to disclose its donors, but its list of supporters provides us with a who’s who of the military industrial complex.

US Likely to Designate Gulf States as ‘Major Allies’

The White House today announced its intentions to dramatically deepen military ties with the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) states today, saying they will jointly cooperate to deal with “external threats.”

The most dramatic part of this deal is that the White House is likely to add all the GCC nations to the official list of “major non-NATO allies.” (MNNA)

This designation has broad implications on military ties and US provision of advanced arms. Two GCC members, Bahrain and Kuwait, were already MNNAs, but this would be a considerable boost for Saudi Arabia in particular.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What a wonderful opportunity for US arms dealers to sell their wares, but will weapons themselves create stability in an area of the globe which is very unstable right now?!?

I think not.

More air policing, more drills’: NATO to boost presence on Russia's doorstep

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg says the alliance is going to increase its activity at its eastern borders, with more air and sea patrols, amid non-stop exercises.

Speaking at a media conference on Thursday after a meeting of NATO member state foreign ministers in Turkey's Antalya province, Stoltenberg said it was being done to "adapt the Alliance to new threats."

"We are constantly discussing the adaptation of the Alliance and we have to always be able to fulfill our main responsibility and that is to defend and protect all our allies against any threat," the secretary general said. "NATO is the strongest military alliance in the world and we are going to keep NATO strong by adapting."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg: There is no threat against which NATO has to increase its rapid reaction forces, period, end of discussion.

Unfortunately, I don't think Stoltenberg got the memo from the last commemoration of Victory Day in Moscow: you had these pics of Putin and Xi Jinping standing shoulder to shoulder, as if to broadcast, by their body language, that an attack against one country would be an attack against BOTH countries.

What Happened After One Family Went Organic For Just Two Weeks

It's not news that organic farming beats conventional practices when it comes to the health of the environment. But this small pilot experiment sought to address what kind of immediate difference eating organic food can make inside the body.

The results were dramatic: The pesticide loads in the family members' bodies dropped in ways that were observable after a single day, according to the report. And by the end of the two weeks, there was very little evidence of the pesticides and other compounds in their follow up urine samples.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Wherever you buy your food, please go to the manager, and let them know you want more organic choices available to you; otherwise, you will go elsewhere that DOES give you those choices.

Safeway, locally, has been hearing the message, and has been offering a far better selection of organic goods than they ever have since the time we started going there.

Obama Calls For Americans To Help Heal The Rifts Between Law Enforcement And Communities

President Barack Obama called on Americans to help "heal the rifts" between law enforcement and communities while giving remarks at the National Peace Officers' Memorial Service at the U.S. Capitol on Friday.

"It takes a special kind of courage to be a peace officer," Obama said. "To be the one people turn to in their most desperate moments. To be willing to run into a dangerous situation, when everyone else is running the other way."

May 15 is Peace Officers Memorial Day, which is part of National Police Week. Obama and others marked the occasion after a year of strained relations between police and citizens around the U.S.

"We can work harder, as a nation, to heal the rifts that still exist in some places between law enforcement and the people you risk your lives to protect," Obama added later. "We owe it to all of you who wear the badge with honor.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to President Obama: it is all in the training, sir, and giving police the ability to de-escalate a situation, and talk down someone who could be a danger to himself (or herself) and others).

And the more IDF members, or ex-members are allowed to train US police officers, the more average US citizens will feel like Palestinians.

What We Lose When Police Blame Victims For Their Own Deaths

In cases in which charges are not brought against an officer in a police killing, authorities have successfully shifted some blame onto the victim in order to support the assertion that an officer acted legally in using lethal force. The implication is that it isn't the officers' job to stop themselves from killing people -- rather, it is the people's job to not get themselves killed by the officers.

The cases below have all failed to produce criminal charges for the officers involved. But they leave us with a variety of questions that can't be answered simply by having a prosecutor decide that it was the victim -- and definitely not the officer -- who was somehow at fault. Even if we accept the finding that the victims were killed legally, it doesn't answer a more pressing question: Did these people really have to die?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

American law enforcement needs to learn to de-escalate potentially dangerous situations, so that someone who is not in their right mind can be carefully, and humanely, subdued, and get the help they need.

If the training changes, I would almost be willing to bet that the body count from fatal shootings will be substantially be reduced.

First Brian Williams, Now George Stephanopoulos Has Lost All Credibility in Latest Mainstream Media Scandal

When I first saw the headlines that former top Clinton operative, George Stephanopoulos, had been caught donating $75,000 to the Clinton Foundation, I failed to immediately recognize its importance. That’s because I don’t pay close attention to mainstream media and the roles their various muppets play in these organizations. Once you recognize how central his “reporting,” if you can call it that, on the Clinton Foundation is to ABC News, you realize how dangerous and inappropriate his conflict of interest is.

Make no mistake about it, this is a huge scandal and Mr. Stephanopoulos should be immediately fired from ABC News. He has absolutely no credibility left whatsoever. In this post, I will explain why from several different angles.

Iranians say Obama deceiving Americans and Arabs about nuclear inspections

While President Barack Obama on Thursday hosted a summit of Arab nations at the presidential retreat, it was considered by many to be an exercise in futility due to the highly visible absence of several leaders including those from the Saudi Arabian Kingdom. In the Middle East, the Obama word-fest was overshadowed by a steady stream of messages depicting the U.S. Commander in Chief as basically an empty-suit and someone lacking in strength. The gist of the Iranian message was that Obama is attempting to deceive his own people about a nuclear treaty that contains none of what is claimed by the White House.

Minneapolis cops accused of pepper-spraying 10-year-old boy in the face during protest

A Minneapolis woman accused local police of pepper-spraying her 10-year-old son in the face while accosting a small group of demonstrators protesting excessive force by police on Wednesday night.

The boy’s mother, Susan Montgomery, told the Minneapolis Star-Tribune that the officer maced her son, Taye, after driving up to her and a group of 10 protesters without warning.

“I was thinking, ‘This guy is gonna run us over,'” she said. “People started running. It seemed like he was mad at that point.”

The unidentified officer then stopped his vehicle, she said, before he “just jumped out of his car and started spraying everybody. The Mace just happened. It hit everybody in that area.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It takes a REALLY MANLY police officer.... to mace a 10 year old kid.

But the problem with police officers EVERYWHERE is that they are trained to view the general public as "the enemy", and one which must be subdued, violently, on sight.

Measure which would exclude most opt-outs for children – including on religious grounds – will now be debated in state assembly later this summer

A controversial bill that would make common vaccinations mandatory for California school children and curtail most ways to opt kids out of the shots sailed past a full vote of the state senate on Thursday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder: will this legislation cause a ground swell in the home schooling movement, and if home schooling is made illegal in California, will people move to other states where it is not?!?

Tsarnaev jurors reach verdict in penalty phase

The jury has reached a verdict in the case of Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev.

The panel of seven men and five women will return to the courtroom in US District Court in Boston at 3 p.m. to deliver their ruling on whether Tsarnaev should get death or be imprisoned for the rest of his life.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

UPDATE: Tweets from reporter in court room make this a study in foregone conclusions. Tsarnaev is going to be fried to end this farce. The evidence of his innocence is ample, but once he is dead, nobody has legal standing to reopen the case and ask for a new trial.

Awaken slaves! - How The Private Central Bank Ponzi Scheme Trapped And Destroyed America

Faced with the possibility that a new Amendment to transfer money creation from the US Government to a privately owned bank might fail and fail badly, and with the name "Third Bank of the United States" already leading to opposition to the plan, the plotters did an end run around the Constitution, passing the Federal Reserve act over Christmas vacation when the members of Congress opposed to the bill would be away. The name of the new bank was then changed to "The Federal Reserve." But, it is a private bank, no more "Federal" than Federal Express. From that moment on all currency would enter circulation as a loan at interest.

THE ELEVENTH MARBLE

Any five-year old child knows that if you put ten marbles into a tin can, you can only take ten marbles back out. No amount of wishful thinking, dreaming, or praying, will yield that eleventh marble from inside that can. That eleventh marble does not exist. It never did, and it never will. All discussions about the eleventh marble are the product of imagination. The eleventh marble is a fantasy.

Private central bankers issuing the public currency as interest-bearing loans operate on the belief that they can put ten marbles (dollars) into a tin can (the world) and magically get 11 marbles (dollars) back out. Thus, we may conclude that the bankers are dumber than five-year old children!

HOW YOU BECAME A SLAVE TO THE BANKERS!

Then, in 1913, a corrupt Congress and a corrupt President changed the structure of the nation's economy and stole your freedom to say "no"! The economic system was reverted to a mirror of that same system the nation fought a revolution to be free of. The power to issue money was taken away from the government and given to the bankers and from that day onward, ALL money in circulation was created as the result of a loan at interest from the bankers to the government, to business, and to the people. There is no exception. Every dollar paid in salary, spent to purchase food or gas, or paid in taxes, began as an interest bearing loan. There is no money in circulation in the United States that did not start out as a loan at interest from the bankers at the privately-owned Federal Reserve system.

Chicago faces huge cost to avoid financial collapse

According to Chicago's Bill Brandt, a municipal finance expert who was involved in the recent Detroit bankruptcy, the market probably will allow Chicago to refinance up to $2.2 billion in variable rate debt, short-term loans and swaps that now are subject to demand for immediate repayment, thanks to the decision by Moody's Investors Service earlier in the week to drop Chicago debt to junk level. "My sense is that this is a situation where serious people will be sobered by the consequences of pre-emptory action," said Brandt, who is president of Chicago-based DSI and served two stints as chairman of the Illinois Finance Authority.

But there will be a price, Brandt said. The cost "could be as much as a couple of hundred basis points" more than Chicago normally would have to pay.

House adopts bill to give Congress Iran nuclear agreement review

The House of Representatives has passed a compromise bill that will give Congress review powers over the Iran nuclear deal, within limits agreed to by the White House, despite the objections from some conservative lawmakers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Okay, so here's the deal. Congress isn't interested in oversight when the President starts wars, as evidenced by all these pre-authorizations for the use of force. Congress isn't interested in oversight regarding trade deals such as TPP and TTIP which are being put on fast track. But when the White House is trying to find a way to make peace with Iran, Israel's butt-boys in the Congress sure want to get involved then, don't they?

NATO chief admits efforts to stabilize post-Gaddafi Libya failed

NATO’s chief has admitted that efforts to stabilize Libya after its bombing campaign helped to oust the Gaddafi regime in 2011 failed. But responsibility lies with the international community and new Libyan authorities, Jens Stoltenberg believes.

Speaking to the media after a meeting of the NATO foreign ministers in Turkey, Jens Stoltenberg said: "The challenge was that after the military operation has ended, the efforts to try to stabilize the country did not succeed."

The chairman of the House committee investigating the 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya, said Thursday that he can't set a date for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton to testify before his panel because the State Department has been slow in producing needed documents.

In a letter Thursday to Secretary of State John Kerry, Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., complained that the department has delayed providing emails and other documents involving Clinton, a former secretary of state.

"Simply put, the committee must have the records of communication requested more than six months ago before the secretary's appearance can be scheduled," Gowdy wrote.

Pentagon Building Up Forces, Alliances in South China Sea

In a major policy shift, the Pentagon declared Wednesday the United States will directly defend U.S. national security interests in the South China Sea against China’s expansive and illegal maritime claims.

David Shear, assistant defense secretary for Asia and Pacific affairs, told a Senate hearing that China’s claims over almost all of the Southeast Asian sea are destabilizing and risk a regional conflict with states such as Vietnam, Philippines, and Malaysia.

“DoD is taking action to protect U.S. national interests in the South China Sea: peaceful resolution of disputes, freedom of navigation and overflight and other internationally lawful uses of the sea related to these freedoms, unimpeded lawful commerce, respect for international law, and the maintenance of peace and stability,” Shear told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Grayson erupts after off-shore funds exposed by Florida newspaper

There have been few progressives as angry about off-shore investment accounts as Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL). In 2011, not coincidentally while Mitt Romney readied his presidential campaign, Grayson wrote at the Huffington Post that Barack Obama should order “the IRS to audit every one of the Fortune 500? corporations. Grayson wanted to stop them from “evading taxes through transfer pricing and offshore tax havens.”

Grayson may have known more about that than first thought. Adam Smith of the Tampa Bay Times found out that Grayson himself had incorporated two funds in the Caymans later that same year, the same kind of tax structure that Grayson found so distasteful in January 2011. Based on disclosure statements, Grayson has somewhere between $5 million and $25 million put away in the fund, although he’s drawing no income from it.

Spanish-language networks: Israeli aid to Nepal was cover for baby trafficking

Israel used its humanitarian aid mission to Nepal as a cover for trafficking 25 Nepalese babies, two Spanish-language networks reported. Iranian HispanTV and Venezuela’s networks broadcast the reports. Telesur is the national public television channel in Venezuela, which is rebroadcast throughout Latin America on other public television networks. HispanTV broadcast the original report, which quotes an unnamed NGO as stating that “Israel uses humanitarian help as a cover for trafficking of 25 babies in Nepal.” Telesur picked up the report last week. The report stated, correctly, that of the 25 babies taken to Israel, “15 of them were born through Tammuz, an Israeli surrogacy company which provides services to Israeli couples unable to bear children, particularly homosexual couples.” The other babies also reportedly were born to surrogate mothers for Israeli parents.

Lawsuit: Water district fired workers who were too old, knew too much

For the second time this year, the valley’s largest water utility is being sued by former employees who claim they were forced off the job in part to cover up mistakes and wrongdoing that cost ratepayers millions of dollars.

The latest civil suit, filed April 30 in Clark County District Court, involves 16 people who accuse the Las Vegas Valley Water District of retaliation, discrimination and breach of contract among other claims.

They were among 101 employees laid off last year by the water district and its umbrella agency, the Southern Nevada Water Authority, in what agency executives framed as a post-recession move from a growth-based mission to one focused on operations, maintenance and customer service.

APPS: Military Industrial Complex Targeting 2016 Presidential Candidates

The Democratic Party Would Triangulate Its Own Mother

Triangulating – beating up on the ideologues within your own party in order to shore up your centrist cred and reassure your money sources – is an especially brilliant solution for Democrats targeting national office. Those politicians need virtual monopolies on union and minority votes, but also need just enough centrists and white southerners to stay viable. To keep those latter votes, you need to make a few very conspicuous moves from time to time.

That's surely what happened here with the TPP, a monster deal with the potential to reshape not just our trade profile but our domestic financial regulatory structure. Along with a Democratic Party that would love one last chance to prove itself to Wall Street heading into 2016, Obama badly wants this deal passed, perhaps as a way to steer his legacy in a more bipartisan direction before he rides off into the sunset.

Chinese Government Inc. has Invested $81 Billion in U.S. in Last 10 Years

One of China’s great resources is its seemingly endless supply of American dollars to put in the world economy. Much of that money has been returned to the United States in the form of investments.

Over the past 10 years, China has invested or contracted to invest more than $81 billion into U.S. companies, according to data compiled by the American Enterprise Institute and the Heritage Foundation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

China has those dollars to invest because China understands that for a nation's economy to operate, that nation must have products to export equal to the products that it imports. China is a manufacturing powerhouse. The US financial system sees itself as financier to the world because of Bretton-Woods and the Petro-dollar, and allowed US manufacturing to decline on volume, quality, and expertise. As a result, the US imports far more products that it has to export, due both to the decline of manufacturing and avoidance of US GMO produce. In March of this year the trade imbalance was $51 billion dollars.

China is on the other side of that equation, exporting more products than it needs to import, and in March of this year, sold $31 billion more in products to the US than it bought from us.

A major part of the PPT and TTIP treaties is to arm-twist other nations to balance trade with the US by buying more products, even if they don't really want them (including the GMOs).

But this is not a solution. If we are ever to get the United States back on track, we need to end the slavery to the money-junkies, stop waging war on everyone who is better at commerce than the US, and redirect the nation's energy into developing new technologies on which new products and industries can be based.

A good model for that is the 1960s race to the Moon. Contrary to critics who portrayed the costs of Apollo as money just shot into space, the technological innovations created by solving the problems of going to the Moon powered the economic and tech booms of the 70s, 80s, and 90s. Sadly, short-sighted CEOs decided that their own paychecks and bonuses were better served by selling the technology to other nations, which is why those nations, China in particular, now make vast fortunes manufacturing products based on US innovations!

But, we did it before, and we can do it again.

As long as we can force new leaders into power for whom America is their top priority, rather than Wall Street, their own personal fortunes, and a certain foreign nation!

Lawmakers may seek to override governor’s veto of gun reform bill, again

At the urging of Second Amendment groups, Oklahoma lawmakers could soon move to challenge Republican Gov. Mary Fallin over gun rights.

This comes just days after Fallin dropped veto ink on a successful Senate bill that would have prohibited private entities from banning guns in rented public spaces and streets. The measure had navigated the state legislature successfully with huge bipartisan margins — only picking up 11 combined opposing votes in its trek through both chambers.

Now, one of the bill’s co-authors is seeking to find common ground with the governor’s office so that the bill could be adjusted and resubmitted, but if not, he is willing to call for a move to override.
