The surging ranks of America’s ultrapoor

By one dismal measure, America is joining the likes of Third World countries. -- The number of U.S. residents who are struggling to survive on just $2 a day has more than doubled since 1996, placing 1.5 million households and 3 million children in this desperate economic situation. That’s according to “$2.00 a Day: Living on Almost Nothing in America,” a book

The West Point Professor Who Contemplated a Coup

On Monday, West Point law professor William C. Bradford resigned after The Guardian reported that he had allegedly inflated his academic credentials. Bradford made headlines last week, when the editors of the National Security Law Journal denounced a controversial article by him in their own summer issue:

As the incoming Editorial Board, we want to address concerns regarding Mr. Bradford’s contention that some scholars in legal academia could be considered as constituting a fifth column in the war against terror; his interpretation is that those scholars could be targeted as unlawful combatants. The substance of Mr. Bradford’s article cannot fairly be considered apart from the egregious breach of professional decorum that it exhibits. We cannot “unpublish” it, of course, but we can and do acknowledge that the article was not presentable for publication when we published it, and that we therefore repudiate it with sincere apologies to our readers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good! What he was suggesting would have made an absolute mockery of the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

But don't think for a millisecond that this guy won't be scooped up in the waiting buzzard wings of the Neocons; I suspect we haven't heard the last from this guy, and not by a long shot.

Texas police bash ‘unethical’ news station for airing video of cops killing unarmed suspect

Texas police upset that a local news station aired footage of Bexar County Sheriff’s deputies fatally shooting a man with hands up want the public to express outrage — at the news station.

Gilbert Flores, 41, can be seen in the cell phone video aired by KSAT standing outside his San Antonio-area home during a domestic violence call. He raises his hands over his head then abruptly crumples to the ground after he is apparently shot by deputies.

“They just cold-blooded shot that [expletive],” the man holding the camera says.

Both the county D.A. and the sheriff’s office have opened investigations into the shooting. Both deputies, Greg Vasquez and Robert Sanchez, are on paid administrative leave, KSAT reports.

But the Bexar County Sheriff’s Department is angry about the news station’s decision to air the entire video, which also appears to show officers handcuffing Flores’ lifeless body.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to the Commissioner of the Bexar Police Department; if you taught police restraint, and how to diffuse, or talk down a potentially dangerous situation, you wouldn't have this kind of footage to deal with in the first place.

But please, don't you dare condemn the messenger!

This happened; it was real; deal with it.

SOUTH DAKOTA DROPS TEACHING HIGH SCHOOLERS ABOUT AMERICAN REVOLUTION, FOUNDING DOCUMENTS

??North Dakota students may or may not learn about the first 100 years of America’s history.
Important topics like the Declaration of Independence, the Revolutionary War and the framing of the U.S. Constitution may simply be ignored by teachers under new history standards approved by the state’s board of education last Monday, the Argus Leader reports.

Current standards do not allow history teachers to delve into topics before the Civil War, so the new standards open up the door but don’t require teachers to cover early American history, as many would have preferred. The recently adopted history standards are set to take effect in 2016-17 school year and whittle the current standards from 117 pages to 44.

“Our current history standards do not even give an option as to whether it’s comprehensive or modern,” board president Don Kirkegaard told the news site. “It’s strictly modern.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is insane, and an insult to our history; it means that the reasons our country was founded just won't be taught, just in case these students might want to look at the situations in British government at that time, and compare it to the situations we see in US government today.

Heaven forbid that they should indulge in such a thing, and might be able to use critical thinking to come to a logical conclusion here!!

DHS INVESTORS ARE SENDING POLICE TO TRAIN IN ISRAEL

At least 300 high-ranking sheriffs and police from agencies large and small – from New York and Maine to Orange County and Oakland, California – have traveled to Israel for privately funded seminars in what is described as counterterrorism techniques.

Former U.S. Capitol Police Chief Terrance W. Gainer called Israel “the Harvard of antiterrorism” after taking part in a 2005 trip sponsored by the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA). Capt. Brad Virgoe of the Orange County Sheriff's Department in California called the 2013 session he took part in an “amazing experience,” recalling visits to checkpoints in Eilat at the Israeli-Egyptian border and in the West Bank near Bethlehem.

Don't forget what happened in Ferguson! The Ferguson police chief was trained in Israel!

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) also sends police to Israel and hosts Israeli police in America.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Gee, terrific; now we can further expect DHS investigators to treat Americans just as kindly and humanely as the IDF treats Palestinian!

CA Department of Public Health Takes “See No Evil, Hear No Evil" Approach to Nursing Home Abuse

In a disgraceful last minute effort to kill AB 348 (Brown) – a CANHR sponsored bill that would have set timelines for investigations of abuse and neglect cases reported by nursing homes – the California Department of Public Health continued a long tradition of siding with perpetrators of abuse against their victims by taking an official position opposing the bill. As a result, this critical bill died in the Senate Appropriations Committee.

The Department receives thousands of reports of suspected abuse and neglect from nursing homes each year and often puts the most serious cases of mistreatment on the bottom of its investigation file. Some investigations are delayed for years, leaving residents at risk and sending a terrible message to operators and the public that abuse and neglect are tolerated. AB 348 was introduced to fix this problem by requiring the Department to complete investigations within 60 days beginning in July 2018.

TIGTA: IRS Could Not Verify 40% Of $15 Billion Of Affordable Care Act Tax Credits Due To Lack Of Data From Health Insurance Exchanges

Because of incomplete and unreported data from the Exchanges, the IRS is unable to ensure that taxpayers claiming the PTC purchased insurance through an Exchange and properly reconciled APTCs received. However, the IRS has developed processes to identify erroneous PTC claims. Our review of these processes identified that 79 of the 80 reject code conditions and 16 of the 20 PTC error codes were working as intended. Computer programming errors resulted in the reject and PTC error codes not always identifying tax returns with the particular error condition. The IRS plans to make programming corrections.

Ethnic activist and “Constitutional crusader” Glenn Greenwald demands lawlessness on immigration

I write this piece with a heavy heart. As I have previously written, I have long held a great deal of respect for the lawyer, constitutional expert, and brilliant polemicist Glenn Greenwald. Seen from Europe, his articulate defense of civil liberties and a peaceful foreign policy presented a tantalizing alternative of another America to that of the swaggering, neoconservative-dominated administration of George W. Bush. But, as time goes on, the evidence mounts that Greenwald is marked by ethnic biases, conscious or not, which lead him to engage in vicious attacks against Anglo-American identities and, most seriously, to condone illegal immigration that is enormously threatening to the traditional peoples of the West.

The Production of Evil (an op-ed from Russia)

If you can't unite your subjects by serving their common interests, you can do it using a common enemy. And if this common enemy doesn't exist—no problem, you can create one with your own hands. You can give it the opportunity to grow up, give it weapons, grant it immunity and release it into the world.

The most important thing in such a creation is that it must be horrible. It must be self-evidently horrible. So horrible that everyone—even the idiots—could understand that this—this thing covered in blood, holding a torn-off human leg in its hand—is the only alternative to having the United States of America in complete control of everything. That burning people alive, mass executions, beheadings, sanctioned rapes—this is the only alternative to gay marriage, feminism, total surveillance of everyone and extraterritorial American “justice.”

The western establishment is nurturing ISIS like an attack dog, feeding it, training it to like human blood, in order to then release it and offer people the freedom of choice: you can die in its teeth, or you can hide behind a gate, the keys to which are in the hands of global capitalism......

What a bunch of bird brains! Council threatens pensioner with £2,500 littering fine after taking secret photos of her feeding birds in local park

Over-zealous council bosses threatened a pensioner with a £2,500 fine for littering - after they took secret pictures of her feeding BIRDS in her local park.

Janet Tomlinson, 72, has fed the sparrows and blue-tits in her park for 31 years but she has now been banned from doing so after officials claimed it encouraged rats.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

They say the same thing here in Hawaii.

Side note. Many years ago the Hawaii guvummunt decided to do something about the Polynesian Rats who arrived here in the voyaging canoes. So they imported the Mongoose figuring the species would fight and reduce each others' population. Except that Mongooses are active in the day while rats are nocturnal, so the two species rarely meet. As a result, Hawaii has TWO pest populations instead of one.

Remind me to tell you the story of the Island of the Plastic Birds someday!

CHINA STATE TV AIRS FOOTAGE OF DETAINED REPORTER SAYING HE REGRETS WRITING STOCK MARKET STORY

Wang Xiaolu, a journalist with Caijing Magazine, delivers what looks like a forced apology after being held by Chinese authorities for a week. A Chinese news reporter who has been held for a week by authorities in China, accused of spreading “false information” about the economy, has surfaced. The state broadcast network CCTV today aired footage of Wang Xiaolu appearing to apologize. He says he solemnly regrets writing the influential story he did, about the nation's recently troubled stock market. I'm sure nobody told him that he should say that.

Many public schools not only are dangerous but produce poor educational results. According to the National Assessment of Educational Progress for 2013, sometimes called the Nation’s Report Card (http://tinyurl.com/mn6snpf), only 33 percent of white 12th-graders tested proficient in math, and 47 percent tested proficient in reading. For black 12th-graders, it was a true tragedy, with only 7 percent testing proficient in math and 16 percent in reading. These grossly disappointing educational results exist despite massive increases in public education spending.

Seventeen Techniques for Truth Suppression

9.Come half-clean. This is also known as "confession and avoidance" or "taking the limited hangout route." This way, you create the impression of candor and honesty while you admit only to relatively harmless, less-than-criminal "mistakes." This stratagem often requires the embrace of a fall-back position quite different from the one originally taken. With effective damage control, the fall-back position need only be peddled by stooge skeptics to carefully limited markets.

5.Call the skeptics names like "conspiracy theorist," "nutcase," "ranter," "kook," "crackpot," and, of course, "rumor monger." Be sure, too, to use heavily loaded verbs and adjectives when characterizing their charges and defending the "more reasonable" government and its defenders. You must then carefully avoid fair and open debate with any of the people you have thus maligned. For insurance, set up your own "skeptics" to shoot down.

24 yo black man with mental issues dies in prison after minor grocery theft

A Virginia family is looking for justice after their 24-year old son’s death in prison. Accused of stealing approximately $5 worth of snacks, Jamycheal Mitchell has seen no trial since April as a judge described him as “incompetent” to stay it due to mental issues.

Mitchell was found dead at Hampton Roads Regional Jail in Portsmouth, VA, on August 19, local WAVY-TV news channel reported. Now Mitchell’s family and their attorney have more questions than answers about what happened to Jamycheal.

“I think it’s twofold,” attorney Mark Krudys said. “It’s the death of her son [Mitchell's mother Sonia Adams], obviously, but it’s also the circumstance surrounding his death.”

China ‘Punishes’ 197 People for ‘Spreading Rumors’ Online About Tianjin Explosion, Stock Market Crash

One hundred and ninety seven people have been punished by Chinese authorities under what Reuters has called a “special campaign” to stop Chinese people from “spreading rumors” online regarding the recent, yet officially still unexplained explosions in Tianjin and China’s recent stock market tumble.The accused are presumed by most media outlets reporting on this to have been detained.

At least 165 online accounts have also been forcibly closed down for “relevant violations“.

The country’s Public Security Ministry has reportedly stated “such behaviour needs to be wiped out”. The government claimed those detained are being punished because they, “caused panic, misled the public and resulted in disorders in stock market or society.”

For Progressives, First Amendment Comes in Second

Progressive America is troubled. Some of its leading lights fret that if something is not done soon, government will actually need a good reason to censor other people's speech.

Such is the ominous upshot of a seemingly minor Supreme Court case that could have "far-reaching consequences," as The New York Times put it recently.

The case (Reed v. Town of Gilbert) concerned a sign ordinance in Gilbert, Ariz., that imposed tighter restrictions on church signs than on political ones. The entire Supreme Court said that was ridiculous, and struck the measure down. Government cannot blithely discriminate against certain speech or speakers based on content.

Spying programs turning US into a fascist state: Analyst

The inadequate judicial oversight of the US spying programs is leading the country toward a “type of fascist state,” says a former American intelligence linguist from Orlando.

The federal court monitoring the spying operations issued the final order on Friday permitting the National Security Agency (NSA) to collect millions of Americans’ phone records.

The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) ruled that the bulk data collection program does not violate Americans' privacy rights.

The secretive court contended that the program concerns the metadata of US citizens, which entails the numbers people dial in a phone call, the length of the call and when it takes place. Metadata does not include the actual contents of a phone conversation.

The Office of the Director of National Intelligence announced on Friday that the collected data “will not be used or accessed for any other purpose” other than an ongoing legal battle over the program.

AMERICAN TEEN GETS 11 YEAR SENTENCE FOR PRO-ISIS TWEETS THAT TAUGHT PEOPLE HOW TO USE BITCOIN

First: the one area where Amin’s actions do seem fairly questionable are when he helped another Virginia teen travel to Syria, apparently to join ISIS. That part definitely seems like it stepped over the legal line. But, the rest of the charges against him seem… like a teenager using Twitter and other social media to discuss stuff he’s interested in. Amin ran a Twitter account called @AmreekiWitness, which had about 4,000 followers. He tweeted pro-ISIS propaganda, but that still seems to be a form of protected speech, last I checked. And, his big “crime” appears to be linking to an article about why ISIS supporters should use Bitcoin.

West Point professor calls on US military to target legal critics of war on terror

An assistant professor in the law department of the US military academy at West Point has argued that legal scholars critical of the war on terrorism represent a “treasonous” fifth column that should be attacked as enemy combatants.

In a lengthy academic paper, the professor, William C Bradford, proposes to threaten “Islamic holy sites” as part of a war against undifferentiated Islamic radicalism. That war ought to be prosecuted vigorously, he wrote, “even if it means great destruction, innumerable enemy casualties, and civilian collateral damage”.

Other “lawful targets” for the US military in its war on terrorism, Bradford argues, include “law school facilities, scholars’ home offices and media outlets where they give interviews” – all civilian areas, but places where a “causal connection between the content disseminated and Islamist crimes incited” exist.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a Christian pacifist, who NEVER advocates violence, but thinks that humankind is smart enough to resolve geopolitical issues through good faith negotiations and not war, does that approach make me your enemy, sir?!?

Because, if your answer would be an unequivocal "Absolutely", I fear we have lost all reason in this country, and we are slouching toward a world war of unimaginable pain, genocide, and destruction.

Sir, it appears that your understanding of history, and human nature, is flawed in the extreme, and if West Point believes that you thoroughly embodies its values with what you are saying, this country, and its future, are in deep trouble.

First, let's remember what the late President Kennedy said so eloquently: "when peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution is inevitable."

What, Mr. Bradford, causes a person to become radicalized?!? Does a person become radicalized because they have meaningful work and are making a decent living; know that their wife will get great prenatal care at the local clinic; have decent schools for their kids to attend, and actually have a voice in their government's process, and some control over their own destiny?!?

Or is it that governmental corruption, poverty and despair have taken over their lives; that their kids are constantly getting sick from having to drink filthy water; that they have no say in whatever their government does, and they can be horrifically persecuted for speaking out against an oppressive regime?!? Radicalization becomes attractive when it appears to be the only possible path to survival.


I am not advocating violence here, sir: I am advocating logic.

And unfortunately, logic and US foreign policy do not seem to have had a great, ongoing relationship in many years.

The US government has supported innumerable tinpot dictators around the world, then wonder why these governments are ultimately bashed to smithereens, ultimately, by a very angry citizenry.

Look at what ultimately happened to Batista in Cuba, or the US-supported Shah of Iran.

And also unfortunately, the US is still doing the same thing in the present time. The US government is supporting the Al-Khalifa monarchy in Bahrain, home to the US Navy's 5th Fleet, which not only incarcerated and tortured peaceful protesters , but also their first responders as well.

Now to the situation in Yemen, where Houthi rebels gave the boot to the Al-Hadi government. Sir, do you remember how many names were on the ballot during the last election?!? Well, if you do not, I will tell you; only one - that of Al Hadi. How in the name of all that is honest can you tell me, with a straight face, that the Yemenite people had a real choice of candidates in their last election?!?

And now of course, enabled by the US military, the UAE and Saudi Arabia have declared a full-on war against Yemen. Civilians and non-combatants - including children, the medically fragile elderly, and women, are getting routinely slaughtered, all in the name of bringing back the Al-Hadi government, which the people of Yemen despise.

And this, sir, cuts to another issue; when the American government supports tyrants around the world, the world understands that our alleged "love for democracy" is simply a farce, when it gets in the way of doing business. There is no other kind way to say it.

But there is a way of changing this, and that is with how foreign aid is meted out. Much of this winds up as graft and corruption, just settling into the pockets of those world leaders the US government wants to maintain in power.

Aid, in food and medicine, needs to get to the people who desperately need it, and the US government needs to have steps in place that it doesn't go to government cronies to be sold on the black market.

There needs to be public/private partnerships to build roads, bridges, schools, and hospitals, to put people to work in meaningful jobs with decent wages. US taxpayer dollars would be far better spent on such projects, rather than on more wars to suppress local foreign populations.

I really want to see the United States universally respected as "the good guy" in geopolitical issues, and making changes of this nature will do a lot toward achieving that goal.

But ultimately, Mr. Bradford, the largest "weapon" the US government can deploy, to prevent radicalization, is to cease, immediately, to appropriate resources in other countries to which we have absolutely no moral right.

Think home grown cold fusion, alternative fuels which can drive a tank, or fuel a plane; THAT kind of research is ultimately what will save this country from more endless, fruitless wars, ultimately for private profit.

White Students at Washington State Expected to “Defer” to Non-White Students If They Expect to Do Well in Class

This is the racist garbage they’re teaching your kids at university today – That rage against white people is appropriate and white kids need to defer to non-white students if they want to do well in class.

Multiple professors at Washington State University have explicitly told students their grades will suffer if they use terms such as “illegal alien,” “male,” and “female,” or if they fail to “defer” to non-white students.

According to the syllabus for Selena Lester Breikss’ “Women & Popular Culture” class, students risk a failing grade if they use any common descriptors that Breikss considers “oppressive and hateful language.”…

…White students in Professor John Streamas’s “ Introduction to Multicultural Literature” class, are expected to “defer” to non-white students, among other community guidelines, if they want “to do well in this class.”

US Intelligence Officer: “Every Single Terrorist Attack In US Was A False Flag Attack”

The latest whistleblower is David Steele, a 20-year Marine Corps intelligence officer, and the second-highest-ranking civilian in the U.S. Marine Corps Intelligence. He is a former CIA clandestine services case officer, and this is what he had to say:

“Most terrorists are false flag terrorists, or are created by our own security services. In the United States, every single terrorist incident we have had has been a false flag, or has been an informant pushed on by the FBI. In fact, we now have citizens taking out restraining orders against FBI informants that are trying to incite terrorism. We’ve become a lunatic asylum.”

What is Your Computer Hiding From You?

A good question arose in the comments to our Thursday story about U.S. border agents searching and seizing laptop computers. Can't people simply store their data on the cloud to keep it safely from government hands?

Let's think this through. Say you have a few megabytes of data that you wish to keep private. Nothing illegal, just private. You want to access your data after you cross outside U.S. borders. What are your options?

One choice is to store the data in a computer or on a thumb drive and carry it with you. As we saw yesterday, you run the risk of having government agents seize the physical device from you.

Another option is to upload the data to the cloud, safely encrypted from prying eyes, and then download it once you reach your foreign destination. This seems like a better alternative. Is it?

FED UP WITH BEING SHUT OUT OF FEDERAL RESERVE, ACTIVISTS DESCEND ON SUMMIT

As U.S. Federal Reserve officials gather this week in Jackson Hole, Wyoming to discuss "Inflation Dynamics and Monetary Policy" at their annual policy symposium, they will be met by members of the progressive Fed Up Coalition, who say the central bank "privileges the voices and needs of corporate elites rather than those of America's working families."

Fascism From West Point

The key weapon in this war, he says, is information. U.S. crimes are not the problem; the problem, he writes, is any information distributed about U.S. crimes -- which information is only damaging because the United States is the pinnacle of support for the rule of law. It wouldn't matter if you spread news about crimes by some more lawless nation. But when you share news about crimes by the United States it hurts the U.S. cause which is upholding the rule of law and leading the world to lawfulness. The United States is the all-time world champion of the rule of law, we're told, in a 95-page screed that never mentions the Kellogg-Briand Pact and only belatedly brings up the United Nations Charter in order to pretend that it permits all U.S. wars.

NYT’s Barro: ‘Massive’ Gun Grab Only Way To Impact Violent Crime

Give Josh Barro credit for candor. When it comes to guns, the New York Times correspondent makes no bones about the kind of draconian, Second Amendment-defying approach he thinks is necessary. -- Forget about expanded background checks or other such measures. The only way to have a “big impact on violent crime,” according to Barro, is to emulate Australia and “really take away massive amounts of guns that people have, reduce the rate of gun ownership substantially.”

RON PAUL : Blame the Federal Reserve, Not China, for Stock Market Crash

Many blamed the crash on China’s recent currency devaluation. It is true that the crash was caused by a flawed monetary policy. However, the fault lies not with China’s central bank but with the US Federal Reserve. The Federal Reserve’s inflationary policies distort the economy, creating bubbles, which in turn create a booming stock market and the illusion of widespread prosperity. Inevitably, the bubble bursts, the market crashes, and the economy sinks into a recession.

Former spy paid to infiltrate Greenpeace and unions

The former spy who sued police after his decade of deception was exposed is believed to have been awarded a settlement by his former employers.

Rob Gilchrist sued the police for $550,000 in 2013 alleging he had been hung out to dry by the police after infiltrating activists groups and trade unions.

Gilchrist's double life was finally revealed in December 2008, when his then-girlfriend Rochelle Rees, a Labour Party and animal rights activist found, incriminating emails to police while carrying out work on his computer. She installed spyware on his computer and mobile phone to confirm her suspicions.

It is understood Gilchrist and the police have reached an agreement, though neither party was willing to comment on the resolution of a claim that reached the High Court.

"I'm not in a position to make any comment other than to say I no longer have any outstanding issues surrounding my time working for NZ Police," Gilchrist said, via email.

TSA screener accused of molesting college student in LaGuardia Airport bathroom

A TSA screener is accused of sexually assaulting a woman at LaGuardia Airport in New York City after telling her she needed to be searched in the bathroom.

The suspect did not post $3,000 bail and was moved to jail late Friday night.

Defense attorneys argued two witnesses said they saw another man, but prosecutors say the victim picked Maxie Oquendo out in a lineup.

The TSA screener is accused of using his job to lure a passenger into a bathroom at LaGuardia Airport under the guise that he needed to search her for weapons.

Appeals court reverses ruling that found NSA program illegal

A federal appeals court on Friday ruled in favor of the Obama administration in a dispute over the National Security Agency's bulk collection of telephone data on hundreds of millions of Americans.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit reversed a lower court ruling that said the program likely violates the Constitution's ban on unreasonable searches.

The ruling means the government can continue collecting the data for the next few months, although the program is set to expire at the end of November under legislation that Congress passed earlier this summer to replace it. The appeals court sent the case back for a judge to determine whether the government must divulge more details about the program that would enable the case to go forward.

IF YOU LIKE YOUR 401(k), YOU CAN KEEP YOUR 401(k): Obama Labor Dept. Sets Stage for Nationalizing Retirement Accounts

In 2013, in a little-heralded case, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit rejected the Obama Labor Department's attempt to punish voluntary retirement plan service providers. The DOL, under the direction of the controversial, radical leftist Tom Perez, had tried to force providers of 401(k), 403(b), IRA, and related services to adopt a massive new set of regulations known as "fiduciary" responsibilities.

The Seventh Circuit slammed the door shut on Labor and the Supreme Court thereafter declined to hear the appeal, which meant that the Obama administration had lost in the highest court in the land.

Of course for the "most transparent administration ever", that step simply meant that the court's opinion was to be rejected and that Obama would use his infamous pen to rule by executive fiat. After all, the ends justify the means, correct?

U.S. Police Routinely Travel to Israel to Learn Methods of Brutality and Repression

Political commentator John Miranda recently stated that police brutality is directly linked to the training some officers receive in Israel.

“As for the increase in police brutality within the United States, I think this definitely can be pointed towards the Israeli training that the Department of Homeland Security is giving all of American police officers.

Some police officers are actually being flown to Israel for the training, not all of them but some, and then those that are flown to Israel, they come back home and they train the head officers in the training that they’ve gotten in Israel.

All these incidents, it is not just happening to African Americans. Police are literally being brutal with all Americans.”

Cameron Ennobles Director of British Israel Lobby

There is currently a petition on the House of Commons website that demands the arrest of Netanyahu should he try to visit the UK in September. This petition is now expected to reach 100,000 signatures within the next few days.

However, notwithstanding the strength of feeling in the UK against Israeli brutality, Cameron has stunned British voters by proposing to ennoble the director of the British Israel lobby that condones the illegal settlements and the brutal killings by the IDF.

This perverse decision would mean, if ratified, that effectively, an agent of the Israeli government in Tel Aviv would be sitting in the House of Lords, in London – in the second chamber of the British Parliament.

That is a position that would be deemed anti-democratic at best and unacceptable to those who require our legislators to hold an unequivocal allegiance exclusively to the democratic institutions of the United Kingdom.

There was a meeting in a church in Harlem organized by people who are opposing police murders and the whole system of mass incarceration (a/k/a the New Jim Crow) which has Black men and women spending decades in prison for non-violent drug offenses (brought about by the Rockefeller drug laws and mandatory sentencing). And with the prisons privately run and them making contracts with many industries where prison labor is a source of slave labor, they find ways of keeping people in prison. A very sick outrageous situation. Of course a disproportionate people in the prisons are black because the police are concentrated in their communities and because they don’t have $ for big name lawyers.

Propaganda Wars: EU Creates Team of Officials to Combat 'Destabilizing' Russian Media

The European Commission has prepared to develop a "rapid response" team to combat what it calls "Russian propaganda," Radio Polska reported on Friday. Up to 10 Russian-speaking officials from EU countries will form the group, which would monitor the Russian media and give policy recommendations based on the media they monitor. While the group does not currently have a budget, it intends to counter what Politico.eu called "the destabilizing influence of Russian-language news reports."

Growing Marijuana Strains that Treat PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

By Daniel Dharma

In our ongoing series on using marijuana to treat PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), we’ve explained what PTSD is, its symptoms, and that marijuana is being used to treat PTSD.

One of the biggest questions I keep getting asked is “which marijuana strains best treat PTSD?”

You’ll want to read all the other articles in this series to help answer that question, so I’ll put links to those articles at the end of this article.

In those past articles, I talked about generic kinds of marijuana that help with PTSD, and why they help.

In this article I give you info about growing specific marijuana strains that help with PTSD…

Felony Marijuana Charges Dismissed Against 94 Year Old War Veteran In Charlotte North Carolina

The charges had been dismissed! From the Law Office of Christopher Connelly:

Attorney Chris Connelly was honored to represent Douglas Ponischil in this marijuana felony case and secure a dismissal. Mr. Ponischil is a 94 yo WWII combat veteran who survived a U Boat attack that left him in the dangerous waters of the Caribbean for several days until rescue.

He had never had any adverse contact with the law until March of 2015 when police raided his house and arrested him, accusing him of felony possession of marijuana. This arrest ocurred several weeks after marijuana had been mailed to his home on someone else’s behalf. Instead of investigating whether this 94 year old vet was perhaps being taken advantage of by others, law enforcement arrested him and put him in jail.

VIDEO: COP SLAMS MOM’S FACE TO THE GROUND AS SHE DROPPED HER KIDS OFF AT SCHOOL OVER TINTED PLATE COVER

As Liz Vargas was walking her daughter into school on November 5, officer Kevin Fitzpatrick heroically swooped in to protect the citizens of Tampa from Vargas’ tinted license plate cover.

Not having done anything wrong, and upset that she was being harassed in front of her children, Vargas voiced her discontent.

“Then because I was in my pj’s he called me bummy, and he accused me of illegal drugs, that’s why I got argumentative,” Vargas said of the incident.

Within 34 seconds of his encounter with Vargas, Fitzpatrick grabbed her wrist and had slammed the innocent woman to the ground, face first.

After being brutally assaulted in front of her child by police, Vargas retained attorney Brett Szematowicz.

“At best that could be explained away that he thought there was an officer safety issue with her pointing up at the sky, but he never said he ordered her back in the car, he never said he felt threatened by her actions at any point,” Szematowicz said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

People of Florida, please vote with your feet; move out of the state, and let your tax dollars be spent somewhere else where, at least, this kind of "in your face" police brutality is a little less frequent.

If this is how Tampa police interpret "to protect and serve", now is one hell of a good time to "get out of Dodge".

THE ONE CHART THE MILITARY-INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX IS HOPING MEAN REVERTS

While most of the world will be hoping the following chart never (ever) mean-reverts to its previous historically devastating highs, there is one group that is 'banking' on it... The Military-Industrial Complex...

Of course, as Ron Paul recently explained recently, the current enemy of choice is Russia:

"The people have to have the propaganda convert them into someone they hate, so they can hate...so you had to have a Saddam Hussein, an Ayatollah, or somebody else, and right now it’s Russia."
Paul goes on to note that while the Cold War may have fueled the need for American military spending, its end has left Washington without a clear enemy to demonize. The US government is now spreading disinformation about subjects like the Ukraine crisis in order to paint Russia as a villain.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Russians are not the enemy, and the narrative spun by the White House, Pentagon, and State Department have absolutely no relationship with reality here.

But of course, nothing coming out of DC has any relationship with reality anymore; this is why we can no longer believe anything the US government tells you.

Pentagon’s New “Law of War” Manual “Reduces Us to the Level of Nazis”

The Pentagon’s new Law of War Manual – a 1,200-plus page document issued in June by the Defense Department’s Office of the General Counsel – is barbaric.

The Manual is so bad that one of the leading experts on the law of war (Dr. Francis Boyle) – who wrote the Biological Weapons Anti-Terrorism Act of 1989, the American implementing legislation for the 1972 Biological Weapons Convention, served on the Board of Directors of Amnesty International, and teaches international law at the University of Illinois, Champaign – says :

This Law of War Manual reduces us to the level of Nazis. There’s no other word for it.

Boyle also says the Manual:

Officer fires weapon after crash, shoots baby in toe

KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

A police officer fired shots after his motorcycle was rammed Friday, and a baby was struck in the toe by a bullet from the officer's service weapon.

Two men are in custody and two infants were involved in the incident. No one in the suspect vehicle fired at the officer.

The motorcycle officer attempted to stop a red Dodge SUV with tinted windows for speeding at Highway 71 and 31st Street. The vehicle sped off, and the officer did not pursue the vehicle.

About 30 minutes later, the same officer received information that led him to find the SUV in the 5200 block of Wabash Avenue, police said.

THE POLICE: OUR ENEMIES IN BLUE?

The police are specialists in coercive force. Their distinguishing characteristic is the combination of surveillance and violence to make people do what people with power want them to do. That usually gets described in terms enforcing the law, but what I found in my research is that the real distribution of power is a much better indicator of how the police will act in any given situation. On the whole, they behave in ways that serve the interests of the powerful at the expense of the rest of us.

Where is Neo When We Need Him

In The Matrix in which Americans live, nothing is ever their fault. For example, the current decline in the US stock market is not because years of excessive liquidity supplied by the Federal Reserve have created a bubble so overblown that a mere six stocks, some of which have no earnings commiserate with their price, accounted for more than all of the gain in market capitalization in the S&P 500 prior to the current disruption.

In our Matrix existence, the stock market decline is not due to corporations using their profits, and even taking out loans, to repurchase their shares, thus creating an artificial demand for their equity shares.

The decline is not due to the latest monthly reporting of durable goods orders falling on a year-to-year basis for the sixth consecutive month.

The stock market decline is not due to a week economy in which after a decade of alleged economy recovery, new and existing home sales are still down by 63% and 23% from the peak in July 2005.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

China's economy is based heavily on manufactured exports. Their biggest customer was the US. as the US economy was driven into a Kamikaze dive by the money=junkies, Americans could no longer afford to buy products, including Chinese imports. Hence, China is actually one of the victims of Wall Street, right alongside ordinary Americans, but makes a great scapegoat by a financial and political class incapable of accepting responsibility for their mistakes.

Ohio cop tells black man he tailed him and pulled him over for ‘direct eye contact’

A lack Ohio man got a police officer to admit to him on video that he followed him for nearly two miles and pulled him over for making “direct eye contact,” talk show host David Pakman reported.

“As suspicious as ‘making direct eye contact’ may be to a police officer, doing the exact opposite — that is, avoiding eye contact with a police officer — could be considered equally suspicious by an officer,” Pakman noted. “In other words, both making eye contact and not making eye contact with police could, conceivably, be grounds for a traffic stop, if you agree with the general principle suggested herein.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is just.... cray-cray.

If an African American is tagged for a traffic stop by police, and they can neither look directly into the eyes of the policeman, nor not make eye contact, what the heck are they supposed to do?!?

I have been ticketed in a couple of "speed traps" in my life by police, but I cannot begin to imagine what has to go through some people's minds when a routine traffic stop may become a prelude to an assassination, when one has done absolutely nothing wrong.

Police Claim Teen Ran After they Shot Him in the Back, But the Autopsy Shows that’s Impossible

Original police reports made no mention of where Ball-Bey was hit when he was allegedly turning to shoot at officers.
Last week, however, when the autopsy report was released, it showed that Ball-Bey was shot in the back. The bullet entered his back and exited through his heart.

Immediately after this release of information, police Chief Sam Dotson made the following statement:
“Just because he was shot in the back, doesn’t mean he was running away. It could be. And I’m not saying that it doesn’t mean that. I just don’t know yet.”Despite Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Michael Graham finding that Ball-Bey’s spinal cord was severed from the bullet last week, this information was not released to the media until now.
The severing of Ball-Bey’s spinal cord is an essential component in this case, which was conveniently left out. If the bullet cut his spinal cord in half, how was it that Ball-Bey ran from the back yard, where he allegedly dropped the gun, al the way to the front yard?

Unlike Confederate Flag, Liberals Won’t Ban Gay Flag Linked to WDBJ Shooting

The fact that this hasn’t happened to the rainbow flag, even though Flanagan also wanted a “race war” just like Roof, reveals that the Confederate flag wasn’t banned because it’s “racist” but because there’s an agenda to purge anything that’s not “politically correct.”

Hillary Clinton’s BlackBerry

Hillary Clinton doesn’t like to answer tough questions. In fact, she doesn’t like to be questioned at all about anything. For many years a compliant news media has allowed her to escape scrutiny. But times are changing.

Government intensifies persecution of gardeners in attempt to criminalize self-sufficiency

Black, Gay Reporter Murders Straight, White Journalists on LIVE TV… Mainstream Media Blames the Gun

Williams’ violence is part of a larger trend, not of black men killing white people (that still happens disproportionately, but the numbers are down), but of black men using supposed American racism as a rationale for violence more generally, and of gay people using supposed American homophobia as a rationale for violation of others’ rights.

Why did Obama nationalize the U.S. food supply with executive order 13603?

It’s not clear what enforcement mechanisms would be employed by the administration should the president declare a national emergency and order stockpiled food confiscated, but such a scenario is unsettling on many levels. Not only would families be disrupted and immediately dependent upon federal, state and local agencies for subsidence, but there very likely would be violence directed toward any government agency or military unit instructed to confiscate private food stores.

Lies You Will Hear As The Economic Collapse Progresses

It is undeniable; the final collapse triggers are upon us, triggers alternative economists have been warning about since the initial implosion of 2008. In the years since the derivatives disaster, there has been no end to the absurd and ludicrous propaganda coming out of mainstream financial outlets and as the situation in markets becomes worse, the propaganda will only increase. This might seem counter-intuitive to many. You would think that the more obvious the economic collapse becomes, the more alternative analysts will be vindicated and the more awake and aware the average person will be. Not necessarily…

AP SUES FBI OVER IMPERSONATING AN AP REPORTER WITH A FAKE AP STORY

Last fall, we wrote about how the FBI had set up a fake AP news story in order to implant malware during an investigation. This came out deep in a document that had been released via a FOIA request by EFF, and first noticed by Chris Soghoianof the ACLU. The documents showed the FBI discussing how to install some malware, called a CIPAV (for Computer and Internet Protocol Address Verifier) by creating a fake news story

How Today’s NSA Is Much, Much Worse Than Stasi Or Orwell’s “1984”

There are still people warning us of sleepwalking into a Stasi or “1984” society. They missed the boat by a long shot: we are already far, far past the point of Stasi or “1984”. The apparatus that governments have built to trace, track, and record citizens is the stuff of nightmares.

Responsibility to Destroy” (R2D): Total War in Yemen, Humanitarian Catastrophe, Ignored by Western Media

After NATO’s attempt to invoke the “responsibility to protect” (R2P) as justification for the destruction of Libya, it became clear that NATO was merely hiding behind the principles of humanitarian concern, not upholding them. And while it may be difficult to believe, there are still those across the Western media and policy think-tanks attempting to use R2P to justify further military aggression against nations like Syria.

However, R2P is conveniently absent amid what little talk of Yemen that does take place in the Western media. US-backed blockades and months of aerial bombardments have tipped Yemen toward a humanitarian catastrophe. Not only does both the UN and the West fail to demand an end to the bombings and blockades, the West has continued to underwrite Saudi Arabia and the UAE’s military adventure in Yemen.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All I can think of, upon reading this article, is the old Pogo cartoon, with the caption: "I have met the enemy and he...is us!"

It is high time the American people collectively awoke up from their slumber, to understand, and realize the significance of the reality, that in global geopolitics, the US government is no longer "the good guy" anymore.

The pain the leadership of this country has inflicted for decades upon the rest of the world, for private profit, has been, and continues to be, monumental, and so morally wrong that I don't know where to begin.

But there's an interesting Biblical saying; "That which you sew, you shall also reap". This country's leadership has been sewing wars, repression, and the deaths of hapless thousands of innocents who never did a thing to hurt this country.

One doesn't have to be Fellini to figure out what the ultimate repercussions may well be of these policies, and how they may affect each and everyone of us in this country.

Who rules America?

In defense of his violations of the Constitution, which he is his sworn to defend, Obama insists that Congress has been consulted and has given its approval. That is true. He also points accurately to the sanction provided by the courts.
Yet everyone knows that the American people have never been consulted and have been lied to and kept in the dark about the destruction of their democratic rights. Even the term “bourgeois democracy” becomes something of a misnomer for a political system in which the threadbare trappings of popular sovereignty are so wholly contradicted by the realities of political life.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

But if there is one small stray ray of sunshine is, that people are tuning out to the mass media, because they have tired of being lied to, so consistently and flagrantly.

They are reading blogs like this one, and understand that they have the logical abilities to think critically for themselves, and come to their own conclusions.

The Fourth Estate's "feet of clay", in terms of their ability to hold and mold public opinion to support the Government's narrative, is crumbling, and fast.

Centcom Defends Skewing ISIS War Intel

While most of the Pentagon is going out of its way to avoid comment on yesterday’s revelation of an ongoing inspectors general investigation into deliberate “skewing” of intelligence assessments on the ISIS war by Centcom, the Central Command itself is defiant, insisting that it acted entirely appropriately in its reports.

In their new statement, Centcom insisted that just because they sought “feedback” from sources like the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) didn’t mean they had to include their comments in the final assessment sent on to policy makers, and that they, as the “primary agency” in the war, get to decide what does or doesn’t get sent on.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Lying to both one's peers and the American public, is now the "new normal" for the Federal Government, which is why thinking Americans don't believe anything the Federal Government says anymore.

ISIS appears to have been concocted and protected by the very US government which condemns its acts today, and appears to be yet another "manufactured excuse" for again putting US troops in harm's way on the ground in Iraq, Libya, and ultimately Syria.

And this is the same US government, claiming that yet another incursion into these countries will be "successful this time"?!?

I am looking at the epic fail which was the invasion and occupation of Iraq; I am looking at the epic, on-going fail which is Afghanistan; and the epic fail of the invasion of Libya, and the extrajudicial assassination of its President, Ghadaffi, which has left the country in chaos; I am looking at the on-going epic fail of the US government-enabled Saudi invasion of Yemen. I am looking at a potential US ground invasion of Syria to oust Al-Assad, which may well invite war with Russia.

And the only logical explanation for the collective war madness which has engulfed the US Federal Government is that they want some war - any war - upon which to blame a coming national economic catastrophe of unimaginable proportions.

As to US government appears to be comprised of people who, collectively, can never take responsibility for anything they have done, this seems an absolutely reasonable scenario, no matter how much hurt they cause to the people of this country, and beyond, in their war lust.

NORTH DAKOTA BECOMES FIRST STATE TO LEGALIZE DRONES WEAPONIZED WITH TASERS, TEAR GAS, RUBBER BULLETS & SOUND CANONS

t is now legal for law enforcement in North Dakota to fly drones armed with everything from Tasers to tear gas thanks to a last-minute push by a pro-police lobbyist.

With all the concern over the militarization of police in the past year, no one noticed that the state became the first in the union to allow police to equip drones with “less than lethal” weapons. House Bill 1328 wasn’t drafted that way, but then a lobbyist representing law enforcement—tight with a booming drone industry—got his hands on it.

– From the Daily Beast article: First State Legalizes Taser Drones for Cops, Thanks to a Lobbyist

You could see the writing on the walls years ago. In an increasingly authoritarian, lawless, surveillance state like America, it was always inevitable that drones would be weaponized. In North Dakota, this is now a reality.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have frequently speculated that if President Obama sees utterly no legal hurdle to extrajudicial assassinations of "people who need killin' " overseas, how far a leap would it be to order extrajudicial assassinations here at home?!?

Unfortunately, it is not that great a leap, seeing how Obama loves to have his way via Executive Order, and accomplish his agenda without any Congressional oversight whatsoever.

And to all North Dakotans, I have one four-letter response to this travesty; move.

Move to another state which has not yet been collectively made mad by the evil genius of this technology, and the promise of suppression, cruelty and death it holds.

FEDS GO DOOR-TO-DOOR TO INFORM GUN OWNERS RIGHTS NOT ABSOLUTE

By criminalizing individuals 2nd Amendment right to defend themselves, government exempts itself from its own rules and faces no repercussions.

This is certainly the case in victim disarmament areas like school zones where only magical costumes and shinny badges grant one the legal right to carry a firearm – consequently making schools a prime target for mass shootings.

Government revels in the idea of asserting itself over the population – so it is no surprise that a joint initiative launched in New Orleans is doing just that as the ATF, New Orleans Police Department and the Orleans Parish Sheriff’s Office go door-to-door across the metro area informing gun owners that they have no rights in school zones.

“Federal law makes it an offense to possess a firearm within a 1,000 feet of a school,” U.S. Attorney Kenneth Polite, who joined in the ridiculous display of hubris, said. “So we wanted to get the word out to the community about this work.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable.
