THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

"... What about the main thing in life, all its riddles? If you want, I'll spell it out for you right now. Do not pursue what is illusionary -property and position: all that is gained at the expense of your nerves decade after decade, and is confiscated in one fell night. Live with a steady superiority over life -don't be afraid of misfortune, and do not yearn for happiness; it is, after all, all the same: the bitter doesn't last forever, and the sweet never fills the cup to overflowing. It is enough if you don't freeze in the cold and if thirst and hunger don't claw at your insides. If your back isn't broken, if your feet can walk, if both arms can bend, if both eyes can see, if both ears hear, then whom should you envy? And why? Our envy of others devours us most of all. Rub your eyes and purify your heart -and prize above all else in the world those who love you and who wish you well. Do not hurt them or scold them, and never part from any of them in anger; after all, you simply do not know: it may be your last act before your arrest, and that will be how you are imprinted on their memory." -- Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn

US slams 'vicious terrorist attack' that killed Palestinian baby

A statement from the US State Department urged Israel to "apprehend the murderers" and called on both sides to "avoid escalating tensions in the wake of this tragic incident."

FAIL: US-backed ‘Electric’ Color Revolution in Armenia Short Circuits

Here’s how history might one day look back on the west’s democracy rackets of the last 15 years:

“In the early part of the 21st century, The Revolution Business really took off, as US-funded NGOs around the globe began to nibble away at the social and political foundations of countries all over the planet.

Consultants and ‘agents of change’ were dispatched to places like Georgia, the Ukraine, Tunisia and Egypt. Their task was to help build two kinds of mobs – virtual mobs on Twitter, as well as street mobs. The best part about it was that you can actually make money off of other nation’s misery and social strife. For ambitious young social entrepreneurs, if you could “get in there” with USAID, then you’d be in the chips, as it were.

For hapless activists and their shrewd nation-wrecking bosses in Washington, it was a charmed life of endless globe-trotting, transatlantic social justice junkets and promoting democracy worldwide. Life couldn’t be better.

Greek ‘Rescue’ is Berlin’s Tar Baby, Worse than WWI Reparations

By now it is clear that far from a sensible resolution of the relatively solvable Greek crisis, the agreement pushed on Greece above all by the Merkel coalition in Berlin, with the willing complicity of Greek Prime Minister Tsipras, is preprogrammed to not merely fail but also to detonate a tsunami of consequences which likely will begin the chaotic breakup of the European Monetary System and its Euro.

Iran has signed a historic nuclear deal – now it’s Israel’s turn

Iran’s push for a ban on weapons of mass destruction in its regional neighbourhood has been consistent. The fact that it precedes Saddam Hussein’s systematic use of WMDs against Iran (never reciprocated in kind) is evidence of the depth of my country’s commitment to this noble cause. And while Iran has received the support of some of its Arab friends in this endeavour, Israel – home to the Middle East’s only nuclear weapons programme – has been the holdout. In the light of the historic nuclear deal, we must address this challenge head on.

Editor of Prestigious Medical Journal Says “Science has Taken a Turn into Darkness”

And there we have it. The editor of a prestigious medical journal that has published peer-reviewed data since 1823 has openly admitted that the corrupt have indeed infiltrated the science community and its media outlets. Surely, this isn’t news to many, yet millions of readers have been and will continue to be deceived by the label of “peer-reviewed” in spite of this blatant confession.

What one can find almost laughable is that this isn’t the first time an editor of a prestigious medical journal has come forward and declared the science community and its publications to be manipulated and corrupt. In 2009, Dr. Marcia Angell of the New England Journal of Medicine wrote:

To religious Jews, these are more powerful than mere hate speech. They classify us as criminals under Jewish law, and thus enemies of Israel who will bring divine collective punishment.

Wasserman-What? Broward congresswoman, ex-county commissioner in Wikipedia mixup

News flash: Wikipedia isn't always correct.

The online encyclopedia's penchant for posting inaccuracies isn't helping U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Weston, whose parents are listed on Wikipedia as being two fallen public figures in Broward.

"She is the daughter of former Broward Commissioner Diana Wasserman-Rubin, and her stepfather is Richard Rubin," the entry about the congresswoman reads.

Wasserman-Rubin resigned from the Broward County Commission in 2010 and is facing trial on public corruption related charges, and Rubin, a former grants writer for Southwest Ranches, is serving a 10- month federal prison sentence for tax evasion.

Wasserman Schultz has a national profile as head of the Democratic National Committee, so conservative bloggers took the faux familial tie and ran with it.

Some of the headlines:

"DNC Chair's parents off to jail for corruption''

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Someone sent me the link to this story over at Pamela Geller's site. Knowing what I know of Pamela I decided to do some basic fact checking and sure enough, the claim that Debbie Wasserman Schultz's parents have been jailed for corruption is junk, the result of an error in familial relations in the Wikipedia article.

Is Mullah Omar Really Dead This Time?

For the time being, though, it may be wise to withhold judgment. Omar, who lost an eye fighting against the Soviets in the 1980s, has been the subject of death rumors repeatedly over the years. Here’s a quick rundown:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US keeps claiming that thus and such terror leader is dead to make it look like the war on terror is being won, then the leader shows up, tanned, rested, and ready for the next booga booga. Not that anyone thinks the US government has any credibility left anyway!

Hurricane Guillermo, Swirling in Pacific, Could Hit Hawaii

Hurricane Guillermo is swirling in the Pacific and could be headed toward Hawaii.

The Category 1 storm has maximum sustained winds early Friday near 90 mph (150 kph) with additional strengthening forecast during the next two days. Forecasters with the National Hurricane Center say Guillermo could become a major hurricane this weekend.

Earlier Friday, Richard Pasch, a senior hurricane specialist at the center, said Guillermo is headed in Hawaii's general direction but it's too early to tell if there will be any danger to land.

Mozilla sends Microsoft a no thank you letter for Windows 10

"I am writing to you about a very disturbing aspect of Windows 10. Specifically, that the update experience appears to have been designed to throw away the choice your customers have made about the internet experience they want, and replace it with the internet experience Microsoft wants them to have," he said.

"When we first saw the Windows 10 upgrade experience that strips users of their choice by effectively overriding existing user preferences for the browser and other apps, we reached out to your team to discuss this issue. Unfortunately, it didn't result in any meaningful progress, hence this letter."

Incongruities in the News — Paul Craig Roberts

Jonathan Pollard, a paid spy for Israel described by Michael D. Shear as “one of the country’s most notorious spies,” has been pardoned from his life sentence.

Pollard is a hero to Israel, not to America, and it is Pollard who is released. Manning, Snowden, and Assange are heroes to America, and they continue to be confined.

What disturbs me about the case is that it is Pollard, who spied for a foreign country, who is released. In contrast, Manning and Snowden who spied for the American people are locked away, Manning in a federal prison and Snowden in his Russian exile. Julian Assange, who merely did his job as a journalist and made available to newspapers documents leaked to him, is confined to the Ecuadoran embassy in London.

FLASHBACK - MAJESTIC MEMORIES

The town I grew up in in New England farming country was even smaller than the film's fictional town of Lawson, California. Loudon, New Hampshire didn't have a movie theater open or closed, and still doesn't. However, like the fictional town of Lawson, the town I grew up in had lost many men in World War II. I was just a child in those post war years, one of the generation later called the baby boomers, but I recall the plaques, the flags, the ribbons, the special emphasis on memorial day, and the markers on the stones in the cemetery behind the church on the hill, identifying where the men had died, and where in some cases, their bodies were presumed to remain. Every family, including my own, had lost people. Parents grieved for lost sons, siblings for lost brothers, wives for lost husbands. Bedrooms were still kept pristine, filled with the artifacts of an innocent childhood, waiting for occupants who would never return.

Maine Drops 9000 From Food Stamps After They Refuse To Comply With Work Requirement

Republican Gov. Paul LePage recently began enforcing Maine’s volunteer and work requirements for food stamp SNAP recipients to keep their benefits. The end result was more than 9,000 non-disabled adults getting dropped from the program.

The rules prevent adults who are not disabled and do not have dependents from receiving food stamps for more than three months, unless they work at least 20 hours a week, participate in a work-training program, or meet volunteer guidelines for 24 hours out of the month. Any one of those three getting met will not result in the loss of their SNAP food benefits.

Historical Truth

We call the war of 1861 the Civil War. But is that right? A civil war is a struggle between two or more entities trying to take over the central government. Confederate President Jefferson Davis no more sought to take over Washington, D.C., than George Washington sought to take over London in 1776. Both wars, those of 1776 and 1861, were wars of independence. Such a recognition does not require one to sanction the horrors of slavery. We might ask, How much of the war was about slavery?

Iran to IAEA: U.S. in Material Breach of Nuclear Agreement

Iran has taken action under the terms of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) last week, sending a letter to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) accusing the United States of being in “material breach” of the understandings. The letter (.pdf), which was posted on the IAEA’s website yesterday, cites July 17 statements from White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest as the source of the complaint.

“The military option would remain on the table, but the fact is, that military option would be enhanced because we’d been spending the intervening number of years gathering significantly more detail about Iran’s nuclear program. So when it comes to the targeting decisions that would be made by military officials either in Israel or the United States, those targeting decisions would be significantly informed, and our capabilities improved, based on the knowledge that has been gained in the intervening years through this inspections regime.” [Emphasis added].

Gov’t: Erosion is “undermining foundation” of major dam upstream of US nuclear plants

The location of this sinkhole and the presence of the sediment… really raised the possibility of a safety concern with the dam… The initial investigation showed that we had internal erosion. A phenomenon called ‘piping’ where voids from water flowing through the dam — more of a stream-like effect — than just seepage. Internal erosion is one of the leading causes of dam failures around the world. So we knew that we had to do something here to protect the safety of the public… particularly downstream risk… Around the clock inspectors [are] keeping surveillance on the dam [and we have] sensors to monitor movements that might occur in the dam itself.

4:00 — One of the key findings so far is that water is flowing through the foundation from multiple sources, and in multiple directions. It’s actually seeping through porous rock — rainwater upstream, through porous rock, through the dam…

“Bomb Iran” plan simply won’t go away

Even before the upcoming August recess on Capitol Hill, the dogs of war, unleashed by remote control from Tel Aviv, predictably are trying to tear the Iran-P5+1 nuclear deal to shreds from all sides.

It does not matter that the National Iranian American Council – which happens to be widely respected in Washington itself – has forcefully come out in defense of the deal.

It does not matter that the Obama administration can count on the combined efforts of the so-called E3 ambassadors (Britain, France and Germany) in Washington, who are exhausting themselves to explain the obvious: This is an international treaty, already approved by the United Nations, and not a parochial squabble decided in Idaho.

Israel Security Establishment Breaks With Bibi on Iran Deal

There’s a deep crack emerging in the veneer of wall-to-wall support offered by Israel’s political leadership to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in his war against the Iran nuclear agreement.

The crack has a name you might recognize: the Israeli security establishment. You know — the folks whose job it is to identify and address threats to Israel’s safety. A small but growing group of high-power ex-commanders has been speaking out in media interviews and op-ed essays in the past few days, saying that Netanyahu has got the Iran issue wrong.

It’s not yet what you’d call an avalanche of dissent. But against the pro-Netanyahu unanimity among the politicians, coalition and opposition alike, the skepticism emerging from the security community stands out in striking relief. As unanimous as the politicians are in backing the prime minister, the generals and spymasters are nearly as unanimous in questioning him. Generals publicly backing Netanyahu can be counted on — well — one finger.

Israeli Diplomat: Maintaining German Guilt About The Holocaust Helps Israel

The Israeli ambassador, Yakov Hadas-Handelsman, was present for some of the briefing, as were other embassy workers who don’t speak Hebrew. One journalist commented, “It was so awkward. We couldn’t believe our ears. We’re sitting there eating peanuts, and behind the spokeswoman there are two German women sitting there who don’t understand a word of Hebrew – and the embassy staff is telling us they’re working to preserve the German guilt feelings and that Israel has no interest in normalization of relations between the two countries.”

Talking to Haaretz, Farjon made the usual distinction between Jews and ‘goyim.’ “It was an off-the-record conversation, a briefing talk. The way I speak with Israeli journalists is a little different. These things aren’t intended to get out.”

Webmaster's Commentary:

Israelis burn 18-months-old Palestinian baby

A house fire in the occupied West Bank suspected to have been set by Jewish extremists killed an 18-month-old Palestinian child, injured a four-year-old brother and both parents on Friday, Israeli security officials said.

Police spokeswoman Luba Samri said the "Price Tag" slogan used in the past by extremist Israelis was daubed on the walls of the family home that had been torched in a village near the West Bank city of Nablus.

"This is a suspected attack with nationalist motives," Samri said. It was the worst attack by Israeli extremists since a Palestinian teen was torched to death a year ago.

Palestinian fury as infant dies in 'Jewish settler' arson attack

Palestinian officials say Israel is "fully responsible" for the death of an infant in an arson attack blamed on Jewish settlers in the West Bank.

The 18-month-old boy was killed in the night-time attack on two homes in the village of Duma. His parents and brother suffered serious injuries.

Slogans in Hebrew, including the word "revenge", were found sprayed on a wall of one of the firebombed houses.

Israel's prime minister called the attack "reprehensible and horrific".

"This is an act of terrorism in every respect. The State of Israel takes a strong line against terrorism regardless of the perpetrators," Benjamin Netanyahu said in a tweet.

BEX ALERT - What turns someone into a conspiracy theorist? Study to look at why some are more 'receptive' to such theories

He believes that some people are more vulnerable to “intellectual vices” such as dogmatism, gullibility and close mindedness and this in turn makes them more likely to listen to extreme "alternative" sources of information.

He told The Independent: “The other explanation is that that these people are literally mad or mentally ill but I don’t really go for that theory.

“For example take 9/11 conspiracy theorists. Why do they hold onto their conspiracy theory despite the fact that there seems to be overwhelming evidence that it wasn’t an American government conspiracy to bring down the towers?

MSM avoids central Pollard question: Did Israel trade secrets to Soviets for emigres?

The reason that Pollard was kept in prison for so long is that American authorities knew that he had taken a vast amount of US intelligence, including a top secret manual detailing methods for the collection of intelligence around the world. Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld is adamant that Pollard shouldn’t be freed; he publishes a letter he wrote to his boss George W. Bush in 2001, in which he was joined by seven former Defense Secretaries opposing Pollard’s release.

The Times has ignored the Soviet question here and here. The Washington Post ignored it in the main news story and in a followup story on the extent of Pollard’s damage. Politico merely touches on it. Tim Phelps in the LA Times gets to it nine paragraphs down in his story:

FLASHBACK - US Suppressed Footage of Hiroshima for Decades

As the world prepares to mark the 60th anniversary of the dropping of the first atomic bomb on Saturday, some American media experts see uncomfortable echoes between the suppression of images of death and destruction then and coverage of the war in Iraq today.

As author Greg Mitchell lays out in an article in Editor & Publisher this week, in the weeks following the atomic attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, U.S. authorities seized and suppressed film shot in the bombed cities by U.S. military crews and Japanese newsreel teams to prevent Americans from seeing the full extent of devastation wrought by the new weapons.

Fabrication in BBC Panorama “Saving Syria’s Children”: Substitution of “Napalm Bomb” Footage

The below admission from the BBC that its substitution of Syria footage between two 2014 broadcasts breaches its own Editorial Guidelines on accuracy is a modest victory in the battle to attract scrutiny to the wider charges that one of the reports in question (at least) was largely, if not entirely, fabricated.

For almost two years I have pursued the question of whether scenes of the aftermath of an alleged incendiary attack on an Aleppo school – filmed by BBC staff and first broadcast as UK legislators voted on military intervention in Syria – were staged for the purposes of propaganda.

Bombshell: CDC destroyed vaccine documents, Congressman reveals; CDC whistleblower case is back

By Jon Rappoport

“…the [CDC] co-authors scheduled a meeting to destroy documents related to the [MMR vaccine] study. The remaining four co-authors all met and brought a big garbage can into the meeting room and reviewed and went through all the hard copy documents that we had thought we should discard and put them in a huge garbage can.” (William Thompson, CDC researcher)

On July 29, US Congressman Bill Posey made his last stand on the floor of the House. Granted five minutes to speak, he laid bare the lying of the CDC in a now-famous 2004 study that exonerated the MMR vaccine and claimed it had no connection to autism.

“No connection to autism” was the lie...

Palestinian Baby Burned to Death After Settlers Set Fire to Home

A one-and-a-half year-old Palestinian baby was burned to death and three of his family members were seriously wounded late Thursday night after a house was set on fire in the village of Douma, near Nablus. According to reports, settlers were those who set the house on fire after targeting it with firebombs and graffiti. The Israeli military called the attack "Jewish terror."

According to Ghassan Douglas, the Palestinian Authority official in charge of monitoring settlement activity in the northern West Bank, several settlers threw firebombs into the house and spraypainted graffiti reading "revenge" and "long live the Messiah" before fleeing. Witnesses say the whole house caught fire soon after.

Anyone who says that liberty, freedom and individualism has thrived under the Obama administration has either been living in a cave or is far too partisan to acknowledge what's really been going on.

The Obamaites have long used the power of the federal bureaucracy that the president controls to limit, not enhance, personal freedoms and liberty with a bevy of rules and regulations aimed at imposing more government control. Obamacare is a major example, but at least that was accomplished legislatively; the more insidious work has been undertaken by various federal agencies that control different sectors of our society, economy and industry.

US imposes further sanctions on Russia over Crimea, east Ukraine conflict

The United States has imposed further sanctions against Russia over the events in eastern Ukraine and Crimea. Eleven more people and 15 more companies have been put on the sanctions list.

Among the newly included firms are affiliate companies of Russian oil giant Rosneft, as well as several organizations linked to one of the country’s major banks - Vnesheconombank.

Sanctions were also imposed against five Crimean commercial ports located in the towns of Sevastopol, Feodoisa, Kerch, Evpatoria and Yalta, as well as the Kerch ferry service.

The US embassy to Russia said that Washington regards the new sanctions not as an escalation of tensions between the countries but rather as a "routine step" in strengthening current US policy.

Did Planned Parenthood Just "Hack" Its Own Website As A Publicity Stunt?

On the splash page declaring that the organization was hacked, visitors are asked “Why do you stand with Planned Parenthood” and invited to share their stories on a separate page housed at ppaction.org.

Even though ppaction.org redirects to a page saying the site was hacked, the domain still house a perfectly functional URL and page that are being actively used to help build Planned Parenthood’s fundraising list. Coincidentally, this “hacking” happened just days after Planned Parenthood decided to hire a PR firm, SKDKnickerbocker, to help manage its response to the widening baby organ trafficking scandal.

The hidden weed killer in your BREAD: Commercial wheat doused with cancer-causing glyphosate herbicide right before harvest... and you're eating it!

Now that the World Health Organization has publicly condemned glyphosate herbicide as "probably carcinogenic to humans," awareness of this insidious chemical's contamination of the human food supply is suddenly exploding among health-conscious consumers.

Most people, however, have no awareness at all that commercial wheat products are saturated with glyphosate before harvest. They think glyphosate is only used on genetically modified crops like corn and soybeans. But it turns out that glyphosate is routinely used as a wheat crop drying chemical to speed up harvesting.

Professor Christopher Portier, speaking at a recent scientific briefing on glyphosate in Westminster, London, told listeners that there's "no doubt" in his mind that glyphosate, the primary active ingredient in Roundup, causes genetic damage that can lead to cellular malfunction and cancer.

Windows 10 Is Spying On You: Here’s How To Stop It

Windows 10‘s privacy settings very much need to be frowned at. Essentially: unless you pay close attention to the fluffy options offered when you first install Microsoft’s new operating system, it’s going to quietly track your behaviour and use it to fire targeted ads at you, as well as keeping tabs on your location history, data from messages, calendars, contacts and God knows what else. It is a bit scary, despite coming off the back of Microsoft’s own pledge to offer ‘real transparency’. You may or may not be OK with this yourself, but in any event at least some of this stuff can be turned off after the fact.

Former Greek finance minister Varoufakis facing calls for criminal prosecution

The witch-hunt against former Syriza finance minister Yanis Varoufakis by various right-wing forces has intensified after Greece’s senior state prosecutor, Efterpi Koutzamani, ordered parliament to examine a swathe of complaints against him.

Five separate lawsuits have been brought against Varoufakis. He faces a series of charges that could lead to his imprisonment, including treason and participating in a criminal organisation.

Fracking could be delayed for up to two years across UK after Lancashire council rejects test drilling

Government plans to roll out fracking across Britain face delays of up to two years following a surprise decision to reject exploration for shale gas in Lancashire.

Ministers are concerned by the implications of the decision by Lancashire County Council last month to reject planning applications from the shale gas company Cuadrilla to drill eight wells at two sites on the Fylde coastal plain.

The Government had been expecting councilors to give their go-ahead to exploratory drilling on sites. But instead they turned down Cuadrilla’s application on the grounds that it would have an unacceptable visual impact and create too much noise.

Cuadrilla has now appealed but that process, regardless of the outcome, is likely to take 16 months.

‘Gambling with lives’: Private contractors pick US drone targets, says report

An “insatiable” demand for analysts of drone intelligence is driving the US military to hire private contractors, with 1 in 10 analysts now a civilian, says a new report. Civilian analysts describe their work as “gambling,” with innocent lives at stake.

The Bureau of Investigative Journalism (BIJ), a UK-based nonprofit, conducted a six-month probe into the US military’s contracting of drone data analysts, using specially designed software to sift through some 8 million transaction records published by the Pentagon between 2009 to 2014. They also interviewed some of the contractors, who asked to remain anonymous.

FLORIDA POLICEMEN LAUNDERS $70 MLN IN NOTORIOUS STING OPERATION

Policemen from Bal Harbour Village and Glades County in Florida have laundered as much as $71 million for criminal enterprises over three years of the sting operation, rewarding themselves with a grand fee of about 3 percent of the whole sum, according to Miami Herald. They created a task force entitled Tri-County in 2010 to provide federal authorities with information about criminal groups across the country. Local policemen contributed to the program and confiscated over $30 million of laundered money, but at the same time returned more than $70 million to criminals’ bank accounts, media reports.

Now It's Personal: Koch Brothers "Freeze Out" Donald Trump

As Reuters reports, Trump has surged since suffering a slight downtick in the wake of the McCain furor, rocketing to 24.9% on Tuesday (compared to his closest rival, former Florida governor Jeb Bush, who trails at 12%). With everyone asking 'what can derail this?', perhaps, there is something. As Politico reports, the massively influential Koch brothers are freezing out Donald Trump from their influential political operation - denying him access to their state-of-the-art data and refusing to let him speak to their gatherings of grass-roots activists or major donors.

All wars paid for through deficit financing, debasing the currency – Ron Paul to RT

Almost all wars have been paid for through inflation, three-time presidential candidate and former Congressman Ron Paul told RT, adding the practice always ends badly as currency becomes debased leading to upward pressure on prices.

Paul was talking to RT’s Watching the Hawks program about his new book ‘Swords into Plowshares,’ which gives insight into a 20th century full of war, killing, and corruption.

“Almost all wars, in a hundred years or so, have been paid for through inflation, that is debasing the currency,” he said, adding that this has been going on “for hundreds, if not thousands of years.”

According to Paul, the practice always ends badly because “the people realize that the money has been debased, and all that does is push up prices.”

That’s the case in Turkey, where the security situation has rapidly deteriorated over the past two weeks following a suicide bombing in Suruc (claimed by Islamic State) and the murder of two Turkish policemen in the town of Ceylanpinar (at the hands of the PKK, which claims the officers were cooperating with ISIS). Ankara responded by launching airstrikes against both Islamic State and PKK.

Monsanto in Deep Trouble: Another Possible Lawsuit Pending

This would be the second major lawsuit over Monsanto’s Roundup health risk, following awareness campaigns launched by groups like March Against Monsanto and individuals like Anthony Gucciardi.

It was last May when we told you about the California-based lawsuit that alleged Monsanto acted “to conceal the fact that glyphosate is harmful to humans and animals.” The lawsuit was launched by the office of T. Matthew Phillips, and could amount to a serious legal precedent.

Former State Department official admits secretly recording women

As the topless woman sat on her bed engaging in a sexually explicit video chat with her boyfriend in October 2012, a senior State Department official lurked outside her D.C. home secretly filming the scene through a window, a prosecutor said.

Daniel Rosen, 45, of the District, admitted to taking the 27-minute clip Wednesday as part of a plea deal with D.C. prosecutors. He faces up to 11 years in prison for filming at least 25 women taking showers, changing and sharing the most intimate of moments with partners.

By day, Rosen was a high-powered counterterrorism official, but by night, Assistant U.S. Attorney Lindsay Suttenberg said, Rosen crept around the back alleys of the Mount Pleasant, Adams Morgan and U Street neighborhoods, peering in windows and looking for women to film. He hid his activities under the cover of walking his dog.

Tracking the Lion Killers Back to the Old Oval Office

There are some laws against the warped acts of big game hunters like Palmer, but groups like Safari Club International (SCI) still flourish. And some of the world’s top leaders are members.

Few realize that President George H.W. Bush, former Vice President Dan Quayle and the late Retired Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf Jr. were proud members of SCI and pleaded with the Botswana government to keep trophy lion hunts available, for trophy hunters like them. There were reports of lions that Bush and Quayle personally killed in Africa but they remain unconfirmed.

Safari Club International offers a “Bears of the World” award, a kind of National Geographic for the bloodthirsty, in which hunters have to kill four of the world’s eight bear species which include imperiled polar bears. In 2006, SCI defeated an amendment to the Marine Mammal Protection Act in the House of Representatives that would have banned the import of sport-hunted polar bear trophies from Canada.

MH370 search: Oceanographer predicted debris would wash up on Réunion island a year ago

An oceanographer in Australia who predicted that debris from MH370 could wash up on the island of Réunion a year ago has said the part found on a beach is “most likely” to be from the missing plane.

At least six people were stabbed at Jerusalem's annual Gay Pride Parade on Thursday.

One woman was critically wounded, Magen David Adom emergency services reported, adding that two men were moderately wounded, and another two men and a woman suffered light wounds. All the wounded were about 30 years old.

Police confirmed that the suspected stabber is Yishai Shlissel, 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. Shlissel was convicted of attempted murder and aggravated assault and was sentenced to 12 years in prison.

Illegal immigrant ordered freed by feds now suspected of murder in Ohio

An illegal immigrant suspected of murdering one woman, wounding another and attempting to rape a 14-year-old girl was released earlier this month by Ohio sheriff's deputies after U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents told them not to hold him, law enforcement officials said Tuesday.

Juan Emmanuel Razo, 35, was arrested Monday after a shootout with police following a crime spree police say began with the attempted rape of a girl in a park in Painesville, about 30 miles northeast of Cleveland. He later shot a woman in front of her children and murdered a 60-year-old woman in nearby Concord Township, according to police. While Razo is being held on $10 million bond, authorities are trying to explain why he was allowed to remain in the U.S. illegally after local authorities questioned him just three weeks ago.

LETTERS: Man-made global warming hardly settled science

Regarding Doug Nusbaum's letter ("GOP on climate change," July 11 Review-Journal) and the general argument that those against anthropogenic (man-made) global warming are anti-science: Contrary to the accusation that we do not understand statistics, upper-division physics or partial differential equations, many of us do.

I am a scientist who has studied the current AGW issue extensively. Here is what I have found: First, it is not true that 97 percent of all scientists subscribe to the AGW mantra. Further, not even 97 percent of climatologists subscribe to this idea. Assertions in this regard are patently false.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Human-caused global warming was never science; it was politics! Back in the 1990s, when the Earth was actually warming, politicians did what they always do, which is to take something that happens naturally, declare it a crisis, blame it on people, then offer to sell us a solution in exchange for money and obedience.

POLLARD SOON COMING TO A THEATRE NEAR YOU

According to the web site Deadline Hollywood, a movie production company affiliated with Fox is developing a feature film whose plot will be based on the events leading up to the arrest and incarceration of the former US Navy analyst who passed sensitive information to Israel.

Pollard, who has spent 30 years in jail, is due to be released in November as per the decision of a federal parole board.

The movie will be produced by The Jackal Group, and it will be based on a play by Martin Blank titled The Law of Return. Gail Berman will co-produce the film along with Rory Koslow.

No doubt Hollywood will attempt to make Pollard look like a poor innocent victim of US anti-Semtitic-jew-hate-Hitler-lovers or some such silliness.

BILL ALLOWS GOVERNMENT TO REVOKE AMERICANS’ PASSPORTS WITHOUT CHARGES OR TRIAL

A bill passed by the U.S. House of Representatives would allow the government to restrict Americans’ travel through the revocation of passports based upon mere suspicions of unscrupulous activity. This bill represents another dangerous step forward in the war on terror and the disintegration of American due process. H.R. 237, the “FTO (Foreign Terrorist Organization) Passport Revocation Act of 2015,” will allow the U.S. Secretary of State the unchecked authority to prohibit individuals from traveling internationally. According to the bill, the Secretary may unilaterally revoke (or refuse to issue) a passport from “any individual whom the Secretary has determined has aided, assisted, abetted, or otherwise helped an organization the Secretary has designated as a foreign terrorist organization pursuant to section 219 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1189).”

The Energy Layoffs Resume: Shell Fires 6,500, Whiting Cuts 2015 Budget 2 Weeks After Raising It

Yesterday it was US and Italian energy giants Chevron and Saipem which announced a total of over 10,000 new job cuts in the aftermath of oil sliding back under $50 and resuming its downward trend. This is how we framed it: "in Q2, after the price of oil staged a substantial rebound of about 50% from the year to date lows in the $40's, energy-related layoffs trickled to a halt as corporations hoped the worst is behind them, and as a result would merely bide their time before redeploying their workforce toward exploration and production. Alas, this was not meant to be, and as the events of the last month have shown, oil has resumed its downward slide. And, as expected, so have layoffs."

FLASHBACK - THE LIE OF THE (LAST) CENTURY

It is inescapable historical reality that leaders of nations will lie to their people to trick them into wars they otherwise would have refused. It is not "conspiracy theory" to suggest that leaders of nations lie to trick their people into wars. It is undeniable fact.

This brings us to the present case.

Did the government of the United States lie to the American people, more to the point, did President Bush and his Neocon associates lie to Congress, to initiate a war of conquest in Iraq?

This question has been given currency by a memo leaked from inside the British Government which clearly indicates a decision to go to war followed by the "fixing" of information around that policy. This is, as they say, a smoking gun.

But the fact is that long before this memo surfaced, it had become obvious that the US Government, aided by that of Great Britain, was lying to create the public support for a war in Iraq.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Before we all start listening to Israel's whores scream about Iran's nuclear weapons, we should remember these same people told us Iraq had nuclear weapons, and even tortured innocent Iraqis to death to "find" them, even though it turned out they had never existed.

Even if they were pursuing a nuclear weapon (which nobody can prove they are) and even if Iran had long range missiles to strike at America (which they definitely do not) Iran is not going to carry out an unprovoked attack on the United States with a nuclear weapon because any attack with a weapon of mass destruction would be national suicide.

And please keep in mind that all these people screaming about the Iranian nuclear threat are the same ones who insisted Iraq had nuclear weapons!
