Dresden riots: Protesters in Germany attack refugee buses shouting 'foreigners out'

Up to 1,000 protesters have clashed with police in eastern Germany in riots reportedly sparked by the arrival of 250 migrants.

Police said protesters shouting "foreigners out" and carrying banners against the "asylum flood" threw bottles and stones at busloads of asylum seekers arriving in Heidenau, near Dresden.

At least 31 officers were hurt in violent scuffles as police used tear gas to disperse crowds.

The Global Economy Is Officially Melting Down

As much as the financiers on Wall Street and the officials at the Fed would like the party to keep going, it looks it’s finally about to stop. Years of bailouts and monetary expansion have created one of the most inflated and artificial economic booms in history, and now it appears that this global economic bubble is deflating. Markets across the board are melting down as we speak, and the financial crash that supposedly “fringe” analysts have been predicting since 2008, is finally upon us.

Media Ignores Constitutional Experts Debunking Birthright Citizenship

Myths about birthright citizenship—promoted by liberals, embraced by establishment Republicans, and repeated by mainstream media pundits without critical examination—have been debunked by experts spanning the political spectrum. But none of those people are being given A-list treatment by major media outlets to respond.

Instead, the voices given the biggest public platforms are commentators who lack any professional credentials on the topic, who breezily assure viewers that “of course everyone knows” that the Fourteenth Amendment confers citizenship on everyone born in this country. And when the media occasionally puts on an opposition guest to provide a veneer of balanced reporting, they put on well-meaning individuals who are clearly not well grounded on this issue, who cannot make a compelling case and can’t answer hard questions.

Trump and criminal aliens: New poll reveals voters agree with The Donald

While the news media, political pundits and Democrats -- who feel compelled to offer advice to the GOP about how to win elections -- denigrate and criticize the man known as The Donald, the more he's bashed and denigrated, the higher go his poll numbers.

As far as his ideas on immigration reform, Trump's rhetoric and his plans appear to coincide with the opinions of a majority of Republicans and so-called Independents despite Republicans and Democrats in the news media who claim the majority of Americans want Obama-style amnesty for the millions of illegal aliens already living in the United States. And as far as voters are concerned – and not just Republicans - Donald Trump has a winning formula for fighting immigration-related felonies.

Children given lifelong ban on talking about fracking

Two young children in Pennsylvania were banned from talking about fracking for the rest of their lives under a gag order imposed under a settlement reached by their parents with a leading oil and gas company.

The sweeping gag order was imposed under a $750,000 settlement between the Hallowich family and Range Resources Corp, a leading oil and gas driller. It provoked outrage on Monday among environmental campaigners and free speech advocates.

The settlement, reached in 2011 but unsealed only last week, barred the Hallowichs' son and daughter, who were then aged 10 and seven, from ever discussing fracking or the Marcellus Shale, a leading producer in America's shale gas boom.

Israel Fires Rockets Into Syria, Claims Targets Were ‘Iran-Backed’. Are They Playing With Fire?

Recently, 21WIRE published an article about the potential of Israeli ground operations in Syria. Less than a day after that article entitled, ‘Israel Planning Ground Operations in Syria? US-NATO-Israel Plans to Balkanize Syria,’ we find that NBC News then reports the following:

“Four rockets were fired into Israel from Syria Thursday and the Israeli government accused an Iranian-backed group as being responsible.”

“Israeli military responded by launching airstrikes and artillery attacks against 14 targets in the Syrian Golan Heights. Israel said the rocket attack was launched by a group calling itself Islamic Jihad, which it said was an Iranian proxy force commanded by Saed Izadi, an Iranian. “For us this is a clear act of aggression and was meant by the Iranians to use the chaos inside Syria to escalate tensions in the region,” an Israeli security source said.”

TPP Stumbles, Puts Sovereignty at Grave Risk

A funny thing happened on the way to global governance. Just when the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) was supposed to move one step closer to world corporatocracy, it stumbled over nationalism and fell. It may soon rise up again—all too soon—but the world’s plutocrats took a pace backward in failing to reach agreement on the final text of the proposed “free trade” treaty at the end of July in Lahaina, Hawaii.

The TPP is meant to bind irrevocably the 11 largest non-United States economies around the Pacific rim, except China, to U.S. hegemony. But despite super secrecy and some 650 U.S. government shills for Big Business—plus 150 reporters and hundreds of lobbyists euphemistically called “stakeholders”—the internationalists were unable to leap key hurdles in their race to control mankind.

We Are All Terror Suspects Under the FBI’s Communities Against Terrorism Program

“Using cash for large transactions” is another no, no. But my credit card was stolen the other day at the restaurant and so now I pay in cash. I hope that has not been made illegal by Congress. But if I purchase a home entertainment system, etc., for cash, am I to be reported to the FBI for such a large transaction by the young person behind the cash register who wants to prove he or she is a loyal citizen?

Always paying in cash at an internet café is clear evidence of a suspected terrorist, we are told. Especially if you are a Comcast or AOL subscriber or believe in privacy and do not allow anyone to look over your shoulder to read what you have on your screen. And do not read the New York Times on line there because you can be reported for focusing too much on terrorist attacks. So what if the Times reports such things almost daily worldwide? The police have nothing more important to do than check out what you are reading in the paper, according to the FBI.

Mass graves: Two dozen suspected human trafficking victims found in Malaysia

Malaysian police investigating human trafficking camps at the border with Thailand have discovered mass graves containing 24 bodies. Earlier over a hundred graves were found in the area.

The remains were uncovered on Saturday in the Bukit Wang Burma area in the heavily forested region covering northern Malaysia and southern Thailand.

“Following on from the operation in which we found ... bodies of illegal immigrants, 24 more bodies have been found and dug up,” police said in a statement.

The bodies most likely belong to refugees from Myanmar, members of the persecuted Muslim Rohingya minority, Police Chief Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar told the Malaysian Insider.

Judge orders illegal immigrant families quickly released

The Obama administration must begin releasing illegal immigrants mothers and children by October, a federal judge ordered late Friday in a ruling that punctures the last remaining get-tough part of President Obama’s immigration policy and, the administration believes, sets the stage for a new surge of illegal immigration.

Judge Dolly M. Gee called the administration’s warning about a new surge “fear-mongering” and rejected a last-ditch effort by the administration to try to force a rehearing of her decision. In the process, she delivered a monumental victory to immigrant-rights activists, who for a year have been trying to get Mr. Obama to stop the detention of families, arguing it’s inhumane treatment.

The Shoah: The Biggest Hoax of the 20th Century?

Eric Hunt is a filmmaker whose documentaries include “The Last Days of the Big Lie,” “The Treblinka Archaeology Hoax,” and “The Majdanek Gas Chamber Myth.” Hunt is with us to talk about the important research and work he has contributed in exposing the “greatest hoax of human history.” He has not only examined the “testimonies” and “evidence” of the so-called extermination program of the National Socialists in Germany during the 1930s/40s, but has also studied the propaganda that has been released to perpetuate this story. Eric talks about the ever-changing death toll numbers at Treblinka and Majdanek, and he points to other serious holes in the official narrative where gas chambers disguised as shower rooms are credited for the homicide of millions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

After all the known lies about Saddam's nuclear weapons, 5% unemployment, Spanish mines, torpedoes, only an idiot would assume that everything we have been told in public schools or the media is the pure truth.

The reason for this hoax is simple. The world had just united against Nazi Germany on the principle that one nation does not have the right to march into another nation and steal it for their own. But the founders of Israel proposed to do just that, march into Palestine and take it for their own. They needed a propaganda device so powerful it would trick the world into allowing Israel to do to Palestine exactly what Nazi Germany had been prevented from doing to France, Poland, etc. Thus, slave labor camps became death camps, delousing with Zyklon to combat typhus became gassing, goat skin lamps and gloves became made of Jewish skin, non-fat military soap became soap made from Jews, and so forth. That propaganda remains one of the most fiercely protected secrets of modern times, enforced by laws in many nations.

And that in and of itself betrays the lie, for truth needs no law to support it. Truth is self-evident to all. Truth withstands re-examination. Truth survives questions. Throughout history, from Galileo to Zundel, only lies and liars have resorted to the courts to enforce adherence to dogma.

A Visit To The Memorial to the "Up To Six Million" Murdered Jews of Europe - Berlin, Germany

This "highly visible" holocaust memorial is appropriately sandwiched between the infamous Reichstag Building, The U.S. Embassy, and the Homosexual Memorial Museum. The placard in the video states, in part, "In August 1988, the journalist Lea Rosh and the historian Eberhard Jackel made a public proposal for establishing a "highly visible memorial for the murdered Jews of Europe" in Berlin. On 25 June 1999, after long and drawn out debates, the German Bundestag finally passed a resolution to build a "Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe" based on the design by the New York architect, Peter Eisenman. On 10 May 2005 the Holocaust Memorial - comprising 2,711 concrete stelar and a subterraneon Information Centre - was officially opened to the public. The exhibition provides information about the Holocaust and the "authentic sites of remembrance". Moreover, it honours the up to six million Jewish victims from throughout Europe."

The British embassy in the Iranian capital of Tehran has been officially reopened by UK Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond, nearly four years after it was closed following a violent attack by a group of activists protesting UK sanctions on Iran.

"Today's ceremony marks the end of one phase in the relationship between our two countries and the start of a new one - one that I believe offers the promise of better," said Hammond after he declared the embassy open again and raised the Union Jack in the residence garden.

According to the foreign secretary, the Iranian-UK relationship “has improved since 2011.”

Will Jordan agree to set up a 'safe zone' on Syrian border?

Jordan is weighing the risks and benefits of setting up a safe zone along its borders with Syria and is watching Turkey’s attempts to create a buffer or safe corridor in the north of the war-torn country, according to a source close to the Jordanian government who recently met with a senior government official. The source, who requested anonymity, told Al-Monitor that officials in Amman expressed interest in establishing a “safe zone and not a buffer zone with a depth of 60 kilometers [37 miles] into southern Syria,” but for this to happen, Jordan would need an international mandate. The source said that legal, logistical and political problems have put such plans on hold, and it is unlikely that a decision will be made unilaterally over this anytime soon.

First of all, SeaWorld has claimed that “no one knows for sure how long killer whales live," when simple figures or even living and thriving examples -- like Granny -- can give us a pretty good idea. The Whale and Dolphin Conservation project estimates that whales born in captivity only live to 4.5 years old, on average; many of SeaWorld's orcas die before they reach their 20s. Perhaps because of their reduced lifespans, the whales are forced to breed continuously and at perilously young ages, which could also diminish their overall health.

Instead, it’s “nazis” as in any racist fascist ideology (any ideology of racist fascism, instead of a political Party), in any country, against any ethnic group. But George Soros happens to support only nazis (racist fascists) whose passionate hatred is specifically against Russians. His entire biography in public life has actually been that.

For the past ten years the International BDS Movement has been the most vocal and respected Movement against the occupation of Palestine.

It has grown rapidly, especially in the Jewish sectors on US campuses. Its fight for Justice has caused alarm in zionist circles and has been the target of anti-Semitic charges by Israel itself, all of which are unjustifed and untrue.

Attempts by the Israeli government to blackmail the BDS leadership have failed and will continue to do so. Instead, victory after victory have been celebrated throughout the world as BDS wins battle after battle.

Last week the organisors of a Reggae Festival in Valencia cancelled an invitation to a Jewish American because of his refusal to publicly support the creation of a Palestinian State. The decision was made after the Valencia BDS Movement put pressure on the group. It was a decision that was applauded worldwide including on this Blog itself.

Loss of Manufacturing Jobs Isn’t ‘Tectonic’–It’s a Policy Choice

snip: There is also a fundamental difference between the shift out of manufacturing jobs and the shift out of agricultural jobs to which Rattner refers. Workers left agricultural jobs for higher-paying, higher-productivity jobs in manufacturing. The jobs didn’t actually disappear; the workers did not want them.

This is the exact opposite of what we are seeing with manufacturing jobs. Workers are losing relatively good paying jobs in sectors like autos and steel, and are then forced to take low-pay, low-productivity jobs in the retail or restaurant sectors.

The Meaning Of Corbyn

Within the context of the old liberal democratic phantasy, the political was thought to be an extension of the people’s will and whims. But this has changed radically within the present post political conditions. In the last four decades, we westerners have been reduced to mere consumers. Our Politicians have evolved accordingly. Politics has morphed into the system that facilitates consumption on behalf of big conglomerates.

Corbyn the symbol has come to embody the general fatigue with this post-political condition -frustration with austerity, endless immoral Zio-con wars, the loss of manufacturing, The Lobby, divisive identity nonsense and cultural Marxism as opposed to Marxism. Corbyn serves as a reminder of the revolution that never happened. He has reminded us that we are one after all.

Marching in lockstep with Israeli hardliners, American neocons are aiming their heavy media artillery at the Iran nuclear deal as a necessary first step toward another “regime change” war in the Mideast – and they are furious when anyone mentions the Iraq War disaster and the deceptions that surrounded it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We can also mention that there were no torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin, there was no Spanish mine in Havana harbor, Pearl Harbor was NOT a surprise, the Lusitania WAS carrying weapons, or any of the other hundred lies used to sell wars to those who bleed for them.

Can Americans Still Take a Joke? Comedians Say 'No.'

"We've all seen it a million times: a comedian tells a joke, someone else gets offended, someone else blogs about it, and then 'boom!,' outrage spreads across the land," says filmmaker Ted Balaker who is currently finishing up his latest documentary, "Can We Take A Joke?." The film, which features comedians Gilbert Gottfried, Jim Norton, Lisa Lampanelli, Adam Carolla, Karith Foster, and Penn Jillette, examines the role of comedy in our culture of constant outrage.

"Comedians don't even have the freedom of conscience to just be neutral on something," Balaker told Reason TV's Nick Gillespie. "[They] have to affirm what the cool kids believe."

Blighted houses still mar New Orleans a decade after Katrina

From the hardscrabble Lower Ninth Ward to middle-class Gentilly, thousands of abandoned homes still litter neighborhoods in New Orleans, a glaring reminder of the mass exodus of residents that followed Hurricane Katrina in 2005.A decade after the storm triggered flooding that damaged 70 percent of the city's housing stock, the most-blighted streets in town are still lined with boarded-up houses that pose safety hazards to residents who have repaired and rebuilt homes nearby.In the Lower Ninth Ward in particular, a 10-minute drive from the jazz clubs and bar of New Orleans' historic downtown, large swaths of vacant houses and overgrown lots shelter rodents and snakes amid pockets of recovery where entire blocks of dwellings have been renovated.

Residents complain the areas are not safe for children to play and that abandoned housing invites the illegal drug trade and other criminal activity, hampering further recovery.

The situation is so bad now that nearly every major global human rights organization has issued dire warnings of the humanitarian catastrophe unfolding in the Persian Gulf’s poorest nation.

Explosive incidents at petrochemical plants are quite commonplace. But Tianjin was no accident it seems and therefore this event appears in a most sinister light.
