THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

"Economists have provided capitalists with a comforting concept called the "free market." It does not describe any part of reality, at any place or time. It's a mantra conveniently invoked when it is proposed that government do something the faithful don't like, and just as conveniently ignored whenever they want government to do something for them. -- Edward Herman

Gaza’s only power plant shut down by Israeli shelling

Over a million people in Gaza could be without electricity after Israeli tank shells hit the fuel depot of the enclave’s only power station, causing it to shut down. Its director, Mohammed al-Sharif, said, "The power plant is finished.”

Time-Lapse Video Shows Israel Flattening A Gaza Neighborhood

It's unclear if the incident shows airstrikes or planned bombings over the course of an hour.

The explosions reportedly targeted the Shijaiyah neighborhood shortly before a 12-hour ceasefire on Saturday. Photos from the ground show the aftermath.

POLICE STATE: Border Patrol Attacks Americans, Lets Illegals Go

Stossel found that the U.S. border Patrol is allowed to set up roadblock for 100 miles inland from the outer border of our entire country. But, as it happens, the largest portion of the country’s population lives within 100 miles from a border.

These agents are stopping cars with no cause whatsoever, forcing citizens to answer dozens of question, conducting searches of vehicles and tazing and detaining American citizens if they refuse to comply.

According to the U. S. Supreme Court the US Border patrol is not allowed to stop cars and search vehicles inside the U.S. but they are doing this anyway all across the country. The court has said that the Border Patrol may conduct a “brief” stop only to ask if the those in a vehicle are citizens and that is it.

FLASHBACK 2010 - Israeli assassinations: crime against humanity?

Dominating the world news, even in the United States, is the Al-Mabhouh assassination. Israel has a long history of engaging in targeted killings and assassinations, so why has this one sparked media frenzy? Many outlets are focusing on the use of fake passports, while others are condemning the lack of action by those governments whose passports were used. Very few are actually focusing on the act of assassination itself and its consequences under international law. While targeted killings of specific individuals with government approval are permissible under international law under certain conditions, assassinations (an attack on an individual who believes there is no need to fear the attacker) are not. Was the murder of Al-Mabhouh an assassination? If so, is this another Israeli crime against humanity?

Child-killing sociopaths of Israel

What is wrong with Israelis?

Every time Israel embarks on a new round of wholesale slaughter in Gaza, polls show that more than 90% of Israelis support the butchery.

For Israelis, mass-murdering children is a spectator sport. When the IDF starts dropping cluster bombs, white phosphorous, DIME munitions and other horrendous weapons on Gaza, crowds of Israelis pack the hilltops to barbecue meat, drink alcohol and cheer as they watch Palestinian children being blown to bits.

Every day in Israel’s major cities, mobs of Israelis gather to hunt down and brutalize Arab children and teenagers. Police stand by as they beat their victims into unconsciousness. According to Israeli blogger Elizabeth Tsurkov, the mobs’ favorite chant is: “Tomorrow there’s no school in Gaza, they don’t have any children left.”

Here’s Another Way That Artists Get Screwed Out of Their Streaming Royalties…

The trick, according to the lawsuit, works like this:

(1) Sony Music agrees to pay 50% of all streaming revenues, for everything from online radio (i.e., Pandora) to on-demand (i.e., Spotify).

(2) Sony then mis-categorizes all streaming revenues as ‘distributions’ or ‘sales,’ which are typically used for one-off transactions like CDs, album download, and vinyl.

(3) Sony’s payment obligation is slashed by more than 70% (if they pay at all).

(4) The result is that all 19 artists, which include everyone from Kelly Clarkson to David Archuleta, receive a dramatically lower payout (if they’re paid at all).

FLASHBACK 2012 - “Most” killed in Gaza “deserved it” even though they were children and civilians, says Israel’s Danny Ayalon

In a clear indication of Israel’s shocking callousness and disregard for civilian lives, Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon today told PRI’s The Takeaway that most of those killed and injured in Israel’s eight day long bombardment of the Gaza Strip “deserved it.”

“If you compare the situation in Gaza to the situation in Syria today,” Ayalon said, “where the Assad regime just mercilessly butchers people and children there is a big difference and I would say that most of the people that were hit in Gaza deserved it as they were just armed terrorists.”

Coming Soon: "Digital Resurrection" of Presidents and Campaign Holograms for 2016

Kevin Samson
Activist Post

Also known as "telepresence," the use of holograms is on the rise. Instead of Princess Leia, the last 5 years have ushered in real-world holograms that have been used to resurrect dead musicians, to create new musical stars in Japan, and and to transport political analysts into the studio of their choice.

Bloomberg Businessweek is reporting that the company which created a hologram for the successful campaign of India's prime minister is gearing up to do the same for the coming 2016 U.S. elections:

"Several months after Narendra Modi rode a hologram-enhanced wave to electoral success in India, the groundwork is being laid to create virtual versions of Hillary Clinton, Ted Cruz, and anyone else who wants to campaign for office via hologram." ...

Senior VA Employees Retaliate Against Sick Veterans

How would America respond if it knew the Department of Veterans Affairs was using totalitarian policies reminiscent of the USSR and Nazi Germany to silence veterans complaining of deficient health care delivery?

A totalitarian government occurs where the government attempts to control all aspects of its citizens lives, both publicly and in secret, with little to no ‘just’ accountability. In the mind of many veterans, current VA policies are not a far stretch from those exploited by these evil regimes in their day.

Yesterday, Journalist Angela Rae chose to interview me on DC Breakdown about our coverage here on VA’s secret Disruptive Behavior Committees, where reports indicate senior VA employees retaliate against sick veterans behind closed doors.

UPDATE 1-Brazil farmers say GMO corn no longer resistant to pests

Genetically modified corn seeds are no longer protecting Brazilian farmers from voracious tropical bugs, increasing costs as producers turn to pesticides, a farm group said on Monday.

Producers want four major manufacturers of so-called BT corn seeds to reimburse them for the cost of spraying up to three coats of pesticides this year, said Ricardo Tomczyk, president of Aprosoja farm lobby in Mato Grosso state.

"The caterpillars should die if they eat the corn, but since they didn't die this year producers had to spend on average 120 reais ($54) per hectare ... at a time that corn prices are terrible," he said.

Large-scale farming in the bug-ridden tropics has always been a challenge, and now Brazil's government is concerned that planting the same crops repeatedly with the same seed technologies has left the agricultural superpower vulnerable to pest outbreaks and dependent on toxic chemicals.

Previously deported illegal alien charged with raping girl in Pa.

Last month, police in Washington arrested Roger Emilson Acosta-Pagoada, 37, after he reportedly raped a 16-year-old girl and then threatened to kill her if she told anyone. Though the girl is a minor, and was threatened with death, the Honduran national initially claimed the sex was "consensual," according to police.

In November 2013, the accused met the girl at a local laundromat. The two continued to run into each other at the laundromat, and kept in touch via social media. During this time he discovered that the girl attended Washington High School.

One afternoon in April, Acosta-Pagoada arrived at the school, and convinced her to let him give her a ride home. Instead, he brought her to his apartment on West Walnut Street. Once inside, he threatened her with physical harm if she did not have sex with him.

U.S. Holds the World Record of Killings of Innocent Civilians

A world-renowned Canadian philosopher argues that the United States is the world recorder of illegal killings of unarmed civilians and extrajudicial detention and torturing of prisoners who are detained without trial.

Prof. John McMurtry says that the U.S. government is a gigantic mass-murdering machine which earns profit through waging wars, and is never held accountable over its unspeakable war crimes and crimes against humanity. He also believes that the U.S. has become a police state, which treats its citizens in the most derogatory manner.

“I have travelled alone with only backpack possession through the world, and have found no state in which police forces are more habituated to violent bullying, more likely to draw a gun, more discriminatory against the dispossessed, and more arbitrarily vicious in normal behavior,” said McMurtry. “The US now leads the globe in an underlying civil war of the rich against the poor.”

Ebola victim who sparked fears of a worldwide outbreak was American: Father who died of incurable virus in Nigeria after taking international flight was going to visit his children in Minnesota

The Ebola victim who sparked fears that a historic outbreak of the disease could spread globally was an American citizen, it was revealed last night.

Patrick Sawyer died this week after becoming noticeably ill on a flight from Liberia in West Africa, where the worst ever outbreak of Ebola is gathering pace, to the city of Lagos in Nigeria.

His case sparked alarm across the globe because he was able to board an international flight while carrying the incurable disease – potentially infecting other passengers who could fly across the world in a nightmare scenario for health experts.

Patrick Sawyer, 40, was planning to return home to Coon Rapids, Minnesota, to be reunited with his children for two of his daughters' birthdays in August.

But his death in Lagos, Africa's most populous city, has health workers scrambling to trace those who may have been exposed to him across West Africa, including flight attendants and fellow passengers.

Israeli attack knocks out Gaza’s only power plant

“Gaza’s sole power plant has stopped working due to Israeli shelling last night, which damaged the steam generator and later hit the fuel tanks which set them on fire,” Fathi al-Sheikh Khalil, the deputy director of the energy authority in the coastal enclave, said on Tuesday.

Huge fires were raging near the plant Tuesday morning, reports said. Fire department vehicles are reportedly still unable to reach the area.

The damage of the power plant worsens the heavy damage to infrastructure in Gaza inflicted during the 22 days of Israel’s deadly offensive in Gaza.

Since July 8, Israeli warplanes have been pounding numerous sites in the Gaza Strip, demolishing houses and burying families in the rubble. Israeli forces also began a ground offensive against the impoverished Palestinian land on July 17.

More than 1,100 Palestinians have been killed so far in the Israeli attacks, and nearly 6,500 others injured.

FBI Chief Investigator Dismisses CIA Officer’s Claims Over 1988 Plane Bombing Intel

LOCKERBIE, SCOTLAND, July 28 (RIA Novosti), Mark Hirst – An agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) who led the US probe into the bombing of Pan Am flight 103 over the Scottish town of Lockerbie in 1988 has denied claims made by a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)’s former officer who told RIA Novosti that FBI investigators did not read vital US intelligence material related to the attack.

Earlier Robert Baer, a retired CIA officer who was based in the Middle East, told RIA Novosti, “I’ve been having exchanges with the FBI investigators and they came right out and said they didn't read the intelligence."

“I just find that extraordinary and then later for them to comment on the intelligence and say it's no good; it’s amazing,” Baer said.

But Richard Marquise, who led the US investigation into the attack, dismissed Baer’s claim.

Grandstanding over MH17 punishes us more than Putin Sanctions on Russia after the downlng of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 will be ineffective and end up damaging the City of London

The European Union and America are about to impose new sanctions on Russia following the shooting down of a Malaysian airliner with almost 300 people on board. A deal brokered by telephone was being finalised last night and will principally target the financial, defence and energy sectors.

However, as we have observed before, this exercise seems largely designed to damage the City of London, while enabling other EU countries to carry on with the essentials of their relationship with Moscow largely intact. The deal under which France is building two warships for Russia will go ahead, for instance; and while existing financial contracts are to be honoured, London’s institutions will inevitably take a bigger hit than anywhere else.

European Union ambassadors will meet in Brussels on Tuesday to discuss the new sanctions, which Downing Street admitted could cause "pain" for the City of London.

The new sanctions, which have a broad consensus across the EU, are likely to target Russian financial institutions, arms deals and energy exploration technology and could be imposed within "12-48 hours".

Israel says Gaza campaign will continue 'until mission is accomplished'

The war in Gaza erupted afresh on Monday as Israel warned of a protracted military campaign to destroy cross-border tunnels and disarm Hamas and other militant groups.

Just after midnight , reports from Gaza described flares lighting up the sky amid intense shelling, with drones flying overhead.

It's not just radicalised Islamists – what about foreign fighters who flock to the IDF? Is the Government interested in UK citizens who have been fighting in Israeli uniform in Gaza

Now I think it’s a good idea that the lads in blue are keeping their eyes open at Heathrow for British citizens who’ve been fighting in the Middle East. I hope they are doing a thorough job of it – and I mean thorough. I don’t want to bump into a chap who’s been firing missiles at Christian families in Syria. But on the other hand, I also don’t want to bump into a chap who’s been firing tank shells into the homes of Palestinians in Gaza.

In other words, I trust that the Met is keeping its watch for all potential criminals, whether their foreign military organisations carry the terrorist label or not. I don’t know of any Palestinians who’ve been firing rockets at Israel and hold UK citizenship – Mr Plod should check them out too. But it would be very interesting to know if the British government is taking as close an interest as it should in any UK citizens – even if they have any other passports – who have been fighting in Israeli uniform in Gaza in the past couple of weeks.

The guns had been widely seen in the streets today as Eid presents, but the children could not have been mistaken for fighters: all were aged between seven and 12 years old. Those present were adamant that they had heard aircraft overhead, accounts varying between F-16 warplanes and helicopter gunships.

Open Letter to the Liberal Party of Canada on Gaza Massacre from Independent Jewish Voices

Dear Liberal Party of Canada,

Whatever one thinks of the Israel/Palestine "conflict" or Hamas or whether Israel is a democracy, we have one simple question: when will you speak out against Israel’s indiscriminate killing of hundreds of civilians, including over 200 children?

The Liberal Party statement is so detached from the reality of what is taking place in Gaza right now that we have to wonder whether perhaps the second half of the statement got lost somewhere.

The Israeli military, relentlessly and methodically, is driving people out of the three-kilometer (1.8 mile) buffer zone it says it needs to protect against Hamas rockets and tunnels. According to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, the buffer zone eats up about 44 percent of Gaza’s territory.

So they keep on flailing about trying do the impossible which is to restore the status quo ante and repair the irreparable.

The Defense Ministry stated that the images posted by the US ambassador Geoffrey Pyatt on his Twitter account, allegedly proving the shelling of Ukraine from Russian territory, are “fake,” ITAR-TASS reports.

“These materials were posted to Twitter not by accident, as their authenticity is impossible to prove – due to the absence of the attribution to the exact area, and an extremely low resolution.

There has been record growth in sales of organic, non-GMO food in some of the world's largest produce markets, a good thing for consumers and advocates of clean, wholesome, non-bioengineered commodities.

In the United States, the value of the organic foods market in 2013 exceeded $35 billion for the very first time, an increase of nearly 12 percent from the previous year, according to Eileen Bentley, small business and prepared foods manager at Bord Bia, the Irish Food Board.

The U.S. economy, as a whole, has been growing, on average, at between 1 and 2 percent for months, which is dismal.

UPDATE of the Latest US Government Hoax — Paul Craig Roberts

The Russian Ministry of Defense has declared the purported satellite photos placed on Twitter by the US Ambassador in Ukraine as fakes.

I could tell that the images were fakes not only from their low resolution and absence of proper designation, but also from the unprofessional way in which the information was released.

Of course, many users of social media would have no experience and could easily fall for the hoax, which was clearly the US government’s intention.

In 'Ugly' Resolution, US Politicians Back Israel's Assault on Gaza

As the civilian death toll in Gaza continues to climb, the U.S. House of Representatives has introduced a symbolic resolution—backed by the powerful American Israel Public Affairs Committee—blaming Hamas for the bloodshed and condemning them for the alleged use of "human shields." But critics say this effort is just another U.S. affirmation of support and impunity for Israel, despite the fact that Israel's fighter jets, attack helicopters, drones, and soldiers are doing the killing.

Jeffrey Goldberg And The Israeli Defeat

As one of the first to predict an immanent Israeli defeat in this round of violence, I was delighted to read this morning that Zionist mouthpiece Jeffrey Goldberg admits that Israel has lost the war. “Why Is Israel Losing a War It's Winning?” asks Goldberg. The Jewish State is a regional super power, its lobbies dominate Western politics, it is technologically superior, so what could have gone wrong?

Jeffrey Goldberg, a veteran Israeli concentration camp guard produces a few uniquely amusing arguments that deserve our attention.

He writes, “In a fight between a state actor and a non-state actor, the non-state actor can win merely by surviving.”

Israel Is a Colonial Power that “Never Really Thought It Had Any Duty To Protect the People Under Its Rule”

Israel is one of the world’s last colonial powers, and the Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza are its unruly subjects. Like many past anti-colonial movements, Hamas and Fatah are deeply flawed and have sometimes poorly represented their peoples, and sometimes unnecessarily provoked the Israelis and used tactics that violate the rules of war. But the Israeli government has continued to expand settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem and to rule harshly over its subjects, while maintaining a ruinous blockade on Gaza. That’s the historical backdrop to the events now taking place.

Why the U.S. Democratic Party Will Die Unless a House Democrat Introduces a Resolution to Impeach President Obama

The only individuals who possess the Constitutional power to introduce a bill of impeachment against the President are the members of the U.S. House of Representatives. Republicans there have said that they won't do it, and the reason is that they won't impeach him for doing things that George W. Bush did -- and that's all they'd be able to prove against him. So: that's understandable -- they don't want to look like fools, especially heading into the 2014 elections. But what about House Democrats? So far, they've not done it because the Party base, the people who elected them, think it would be disloyal. Boy, are they wrong! Democrats impeaching and removing Obama is, to the contrary, the only way to salvage the Democratic Party.

Senate Bill 2277 Isn't Just about 'Russian Agression' — It's Also about Oil, Gas and Propaganda

The full name of Senate Bill 2277, introduced on May 1st, 2014, is "To prevent further Russian aggression toward Ukraine and other sovereign states in Europe and Eurasia, and for other purposes." It starts out claiming to be about the Department of Defense creating "a strategic framework for U.S. security assistance and cooperation in Europe and Eurasia".

Currently, the bill is listed on Congress.gov as having been read twice and referred to the Committee on Foreign Relations. The bill's full text can be found here.

As Paul Craig Roberts has pointed out, "Washington’s incessant lies alleging 'Russian aggression' have created Russian aggression out of thin air."

Hillary Clinton backs GMOs to the hilt

The Times of San Diego reports on Hillary Clinton’s keynote speech to biotech heavy hitters, at the recent BIO International Convention.

The headline is: “Hillary Clinton Cheers Biotechers, Backing GMOs and Federal Help.”

Hillary professes worry that biotech companies are moving their operations out of the US. The answer? Federal subsidies, of course:

“’Maybe there’s a way of getting a representative group of actors at the table’ to discuss how the federal government could help biotechs with ‘insurance against risk,’ she said.”

In other words, stay in the US, carry out as much research as you want to, and we’ll knock down lawsuits, pay you for your failures, and support you when you lie and claim your results are positive and pose no risk to human health.

MH17 jet 'downed by missile shrapnel,' says Ukraine

The Dutch team leading the investigation into flight MH17 won't be happy that a Ukrainian security official has apparently jumped the gun on the black box data results.

25 Recent Events in Ukraine the U.S. Wants You To Forget

Remember when our rulers told us that regimes like Saddam, Gaddafi, and Assad were the epitome of evil and must be liberated because they allegedly killed their own citizens? Probably not. Americans have short memories.

I only remind you to let you know that the U.S. and other Western governments have reversed their stance on regimes killing their own citizens. They now fully endorse and support this rule-with-an-iron-fist so long as the victims can be successfully labeled “separatists” or “terrorists”.

In fact, they want in on the action. The Pentagon began wargaming this week with the regime in Ukraine on how best to kill pesky citizens in Eastern Ukraine who oppose the U.S. Vice President’s son stealing and fracking shale gas on their land.

People who defend their land and families are called “terrorists” when imperial powers want their resources. In turn, Western rulers call violent coups “duly elected” if they pledge allegiance to the IMF.

Hackers Plundered Israeli Defense Firms that Built ‘Iron Dome’ Missile Defense System

Three Israeli defense contractors responsible for building the “Iron Dome” missile shield currently protecting Israel from a barrage of rocket attacks were compromised by hackers and robbed of huge quantities of sensitive documents pertaining to the shield technology, KrebsOnSecurity has learned.

The never-before publicized intrusions, which occurred between 2011 and 2012, illustrate the continued challenges that defense contractors and other companies face in deterring organized cyber adversaries and preventing the theft of proprietary information.

According to Columbia, Md.-based threat intelligence firm Cyber Engineering Services Inc. (CyberESI), between Oct. 10, 2011 and August 13, 2012, attackers thought to be operating out of China hacked into the corporate networks of three top Israeli defense technology companies, including Elisra Group, Israel Aerospace Industries, and Rafael Advanced Defense Systems.

Paying for Israel’s wars

While the mounting human losses in the current battle between Hamas and Israel rightly preoccupy the world, the financial costs of Israel’s three-week long war with Gaza are also astonishing. According to one estimate, rockets from Gaza will potentially cost Israel about $30 million in direct damage (and at this point, three civilian lives lost), while the Israel Defense Forces’ (IDF) response will cost about $1 billion. Why do Israelis accept paying these financial costs of the war for a relatively small direct threat?

Still Torn by Factional Fighting, Post-Revolt Libya Is Coming Undone

For weeks, rival Libyan militias had been pounding one another’s positions with artillery, mortar rounds and rockets in a desperate fight to control the international airport in the capital, Tripoli. Then suddenly, early Saturday morning, the fighting just stopped.

The pause came as United States military warplanes circled overhead, providing air cover for a predawn evacuation of the American Embassy’s staff. Apparently fearing the planes, the militias held their fire just long enough for the ambassador and her staff to reach the Tunisian border — a reminder to Libyans of how even their most powerful allies were incapable of putting out their incendiary feuds.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What is really happening in Libya is a replay of what happened in Iran in 1979 and is also happening in Iraq. The people are tired of their imposed US puppet rulers and are taking their nation back. But this is a reality the New York Times (who assured us all that Saddam had nuclear weapons) dares not report.

Washington threatens to intervene in east Ukraine fighting

In a reckless maneuver posing the risk of direct clashes between the United States and Russia, Washington is moving to escalate the civil war in east Ukraine by directly involving US forces in the targeting of Russian-backed separatist groups.

The Pentagon and the CIA have drawn up plans for providing “real time” information on the location of missile batteries or other targets controlled by pro-Russian forces. While the White House has yet to announce a decision on the precise course of action it will follow, the plans to escalate US involvement are strongly supported by Secretary of State John Kerry.

How many Palestinians have been killed in Gaza?

The total population of the United States is 313.9 million people. Suppose some Martian power invaded the US and started bombing it coast to coast from land, sea, and air and killed precisely the same percentage of Americans, namely 0.055 percent. How many Americans would that be? It comes down to 172,852 people - men, women, children, and even entire families.

I looked at a chart of the major US cities and this equals the average population of some 50 major US cities - ranging from Garden Grove in California to Providence in Rhode Island! That's how many Palestinians Israel has killed so far, if we were to factor in the size and proportionately project it to the population of the United States.

What would President Obama do if after fourteen days of relentless bombardment by these fictive Martians some 172,852 Americans were to be slaughtered in any one of these cities? Would he say something similar to "Israel has every right to defend itself?" I seriously doubt it.

Obama Seeks to Dramatically Broaden US War on Terror

The news that President Obama was looking at getting Congress to remove the 9/11 Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF), as well as the 2002 AUMF that led to the invasion and occupation of Iraq, was initially seen as a possible climbdown from the position of eternal American warfare.

Instead, White House officials are now saying that the old 9/11 AUMF is “outdated” and less useful in their current warmongering, primarily because it is so difficult to spin factions that didn’t exist 13 years ago as something to do with 9/11.

The “repeal” is really a cover for what they are now calling the “evolving” of the global war on terrorism, and the introduction of a new, broader authority for the president to attack whatever flavor-of-the-week enemy he can get the terrorist label to stick to.

Police received several calls from angry New Jersey residents claiming "middle-eastern" men with a white van were videotaping the disaster with shouts of joy and mockery. (2)

"They were like happy, you know … They didn't look shocked to me" said a witness. (3)
[T]hey were seen by New Jersey residents on Sept. 11 making fun of the World Trade Center ruins and going to extreme lengths to photograph themselves in front of the wreckage. (4)

Witnesses saw them jumping for joy in Liberty State Park after the initial impact (5). Later on, other witnesses saw them celebrating on a roof in Weehawken, and still more witnesses later saw them celebrating with high fives in a Jersey City parking lot. (6)

FLASHBACK - The "Pod People" And The PlaneThat Crashed Into the Pentagon

This is an old intelligence trick called "Poisoning the well", the intentional promotion of lies to blend with an embarrassing truth to discredit it. And the intensity with which the propagandists are pushing this no-plane nonsense is easily explained by the fact that they have nothing else at all with which to defend the official story. The sheer fury with which this story has been met both here at WRH andover at the radio show betrays a sense of panic within the government that the American people know 9-11 was a war-starting hoax. "No plane" is the last card they have to play.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have a bunch of presumably Israeli trolls following me all around the net trying to poison the well on various discussions by claiming that there was not only no plane at the Pentagon but also at the World Trade towers. Their sole argument is that the aluminum of the aircraft could not crash through the steel of the World Trade Towers. Of course, the outer walls of the World Trade Towers were not steel, but also of aluminum. I don't intend to get into this discussion, but here is a repost of the arguments against the "no-planers."

Israel And The Logic of Being Untouchable

Terror and dread. There isn’t a right-thinking human being in the world having witnessed what Israel did to the civilian population of Gaza recently who doesn’t understand this concept now. Every single Prime Minister, president, sultan, emir, and even the Pope himself, having watched this event and the complete lack of conscience on the part of–not just the Jewish state in the Middle East, but indeed the Jewish people worldwide, did a quick count of Israel’s 200 nuclear weapons, Jewish control of finance and economics in their respective countries and who then understood the very powerful yet subtle message being sent. Just as those seated around the table when that guy’s brains were beaten out all over the place in The Untouchables, likewise every person of measurable power in the world now understands how easily they could wind up in place of the Palestinians in Gaza if they don’t play their cards right.

Netanyahu: Israelis Must Be 'Ready For A Prolonged Campaign' In Gaza

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday that Israel must be ready for a "prolonged" military operation in the Gaza Strip and will "act aggressively and responsibly" until the mission is completed.

Netanyahu said Israel will "not end the operation without neutralizing the tunnels whose only purpose is" to kill civilians.

"We need to be ready for a prolonged campaign," he said. "We will continue to act aggressively and responsibly until the mission is completed to protect our citizens, soldiers and children."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"....responsibly", MY ASTROLABE!!!

And Netanyahu knows well enough that the tunnels are about getting goods into Gaza which the Israeli government forbids Gazan Palestinians from having.

Missile equipment and munitions have been strictly forbidden from entering into Gaza as declared in the Defense Export Control Order of 2008.

Israel army warns Palestinians around Gaza City to flee

The Israeli army on Monday sent messages to thousands of Palestinians living near Gaza City to flee shortly after a mortar shell killed at least four people in Israel.

“A short while ago, phonecalls were made and text messages were sent out to the civilian population of Shejaiya, Zeitun and eastern Jabaliya calling them to evacuate immediately towards central Gaza City,” a statement from the army said, referring to three areas to the north, south and east of Gaza City.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh, REALLY?!?

Because I just saw an image of a massive bomb attack on Gaza City; was this the IDF's intent, bombing innocent men, women and children they had ordered, through instructions from these phone calls and texts to be there, to have them massed there, just at the time this bombardment started?!?

The Israeli leadership, and IDF leadership, have the morals of a trout!

No, wait a minute: that's a bloody insult to the trout!!

Ebola only a plane ride away from USA

"A case very well could fly out of Africa, only to be detected in some distant country," says Osterholm, who served as an adviser to the George W. Bush administration on bioterrorism.

But Ebola "would not pose a major public health risk" in the USA, he says.

Ebola is unlikely to cause large outbreaks here, he says, because people need to be in intimate contact to spread the virus.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Any contact, not just "intimate", can result in infection. The doctors in Africa who have become infected prove that, as we may presume they are taking precautions to avoid "intimate" contact with their patients. The known Ebola strains cannot survive in the air for very long, but can survive inside microscopic droplets of fluid such as those ejected by a cough or a sneeze. Until the moisture evaporates, the virus is still viable and infected. Commonly shared surfaces such as restroom fixtures, door handles, and touch screens can transmit the disease. And, were the virus to mutate, as Ebola is known to do rapidly, a simple change to the protein coat could make it able to survive in the air long enough to be transmitted like a cold. This is a serious problem, and it alarms me that the US Government is still obsessing about Gaza, Russia, and the illegal immigrants, and treating the potential for Ebola to come here to the US (courtesy of the aforesaid illegal immigrants) as of minor importance.

There is no cure for Ebola.

There is no vaccine.

This strain of Ebola kills half the people it infects.

Is this the start of a world depopulation program?

Ukraine's use of unguided rockets in civilian areas of Donetsk 'may be war crimes'

Human Rights Watch has gathered evidence in the war zones of Eastern Ukraine which show that Ukrainian government forces have violated the laws of war by using 'notoriously imprecise' rockets in civilian areas, destroying homes, killing and injuring non-combatants.

Unguided Grad rockets launched apparently by Ukrainian government forces and pro-government militias have killed at least 16 civilians and wounded many more in insurgent-controlled areas of Donetsk and its suburbs in at least four attacks between July 12 and 21, 2014, according to Human Rights Watch.

The use of indiscriminate rockets in populated areas violates international humanitarian law, or the laws of war, and may amount to war crimes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Gee, YA THINK?!?!?

What SHOULD have been resolved through honest, hard negotiations between the separatist rebels and Kiev is now, courtesy of Poroschenko and his US/EU enablers, being resolved by a bloodbath.

Every day, innocent kids, women, and the medically fragile elderly are being slaughtered and maimed for life, because Poroschenko refuses to negotiate.

The pictures of this carnage you see at WRH are NOT BEING SHOWN by the corporate presstitutes, because they do not want the public to see how horrifically barbaric this slaughter is.

In 1983, 50 companies owned 90 percent of the media consumed by Americans. By 2012, just six companies — including Fox (then part of News Corporation) and Time Warner — controlled that 90 percent.

The much-admired Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black may be rolling in his grave at the prospect of a merger between 21st Century Fox and Time Warner Inc., which would reduce control of the major Hollywood studios to five owners, from six, and major television producers to four, from five.

Stingray, the fake cell phone tower cops and carriers use to track your every move

Over the past 12-18 months, there’s been an increased level of scrutiny applied to the various ways local, state, and federal law enforcement officials track and monitor the lives of ordinary citizens. One tool that’s come under increasing fire is the so-called stingray — a fake cell phone tower that law enforcement officials deploy to track a suspect, often without a warrant or any other formal approval.

America is buying disputed Iraqi Kurdish Crude Oil

Today a Marshall Islands-flagged tanker ‘United Kalavrvta’ carrying crude oil from Iraqi Kurdistan was anchored near the Port of Galveston, Texas, despite Washington’s long-standing concern over independent oil sales from the autonomous region. It would be at least the second time a U.S. company has taken delivery of oil that the Baghdad government says was smuggled from the country.

The semi-autonomous government in Kurdistan argues the exports are within its rights under Iraq’s federal constitution, but Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki insists all Iraqi oil must be brokered by the state oil company.

The shipment is significant because it is one of the first from the new pipeline through Turkey, which Baghdad emphatically calls a smuggling operation. To make matters more tense with Baghdad, the Kurds siezed northern oil fields from ISIS control to keep them out of the hands of the Jihadist insurgents who control the northwest of the country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is just a question of time before the government in Baghdad collapses completely, and Kurdistan's officials have been making statements about creating a completely independent country here.

Ultimately, like it or not, the US is going to have to deal with an independent Kurdistan, with oil to sell.

Admitted Liar Claims Russia Is Shooting Artillery Into Ukraine

Should We Believe a Known Liar?

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper is an known liar:

One of the nation’s top military and constitutional law experts – Professor Jonathan Turley – writes:

National Intelligence Director James Clapper appeared before Congress and lied about the program. He later said that he gave the least untruthful statement he could think of. But it was nevertheless untrue and potentially a crime for which he could be prosecuted.

And a huge majority of Americans agree that Clapper should be prosecuted for perjury.

Should we believe a known liar?

Clapper now claims that satellite photos show that Russia fired artillery into Ukraine.

The Pentagon and State Department first accused Russian artillery of firing directly into Ukraine on Thursday. The charges were repeated Friday, although no evidence was offered.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Nothing anyone says in the Federal government can be considered as the truth, and Clapper is no exception to this reality.

In fact, were President Obama to knock on our door here on Oahu, and tell me that the sun was shining, I would be morally obligated to walk out the door and look for myself.

Intl. teams find ‘no violations’ by Russia along Ukrainian border

Inspectors who came to check the state of Russian troops along the Ukrainian borders have found no violations, Russia’s Ministry of Defense said. This came as a response to the US alleging 15,000 Russian troops have amassed in the area.

“It has come to our attention that new allegations by top US officials as to the alleged amassing of Russian troops along the Ukrainian border have been voiced,” the statement by the Defense Ministry read, following allegations by the US Permanent Representative to NATO, Douglas Lute, and State Department spokeswoman, Marie Harf.

“The last four months have witnessed 18 separate inspections along the Ukrainian border with the Russian Federation, all in line with the Vienna Open Skies Treaty and the Vienna agreement of 2011.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

By now, both thinking Americans and the world expect the US government to lie,to forward its geopolitical agenda, and the corporate presstitutes to regurgitate precisely the same lies to the world.

The problem is that this government has destroyed its credibility so completely, that even if, for a a moment, they actually told the truth about anything, no one would believe them.

Barack Obama has already checked out of his job The degree to which Barack Obama is now phoning it in – sleepwalking perfunctorily through his second term, amid golf rounds and dinner parties – is astonishing

President Obama has emotionally checked out of his job a couple of years early, it seems. How can one tell?

Consider this: In recent days, a) Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was shot down, apparently by Russian separatists in Ukraine, b) In the Gaza strip, the numbers killed continued to mount as Israelis and Palestinians exchange rocket fire, c) a huge influx of children fleeing Central American poverty and gang warfare swamped America’s southern border, creating a humanitarian crisis. And, oh yeah, d) Christians living in Mosul were given the choice to either convert to Islam or flee the area they have inhabited for nearly two thousand years.

You know what else has happened during this time? a) Obama played many rounds of golf, b) he attended numerous fund-raisers, c) he dined on barbecue in Texas and burgers in Delaware, and d) he almost appeared on the comedian Jimmy Kimmel’s late-night television show in Hollywood.

StingRay: US Police have Used Fake Mobile Base Stations to Spy on Citizens

A civil liberties group has discovered emails showing that the US government has concealed police use of fake mobile base stations which can spy on citizens without requiring search warrants since at least 2009.

Emails obtained by the American Civil Liberties Union show that federal law enforcement officials insisted police in Sacramento, Florida conceal their use of the devices, known as "StingRay", in order to prevent criminals from learning how to get around them.

Sgt. Ken Castro of the Sarasota Police Department sent emails to members of the North Port Police Department in April 2009, informing them that the US Marshals Service requested that police not disclose StingRay in court depositions, but instead refer to it as "information from a confidential source regarding the location of the suspect".

The North Port Police Department implemented the new rules and continues to avoid mentioning StingRay, according to the emails.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Surveillance is not about keeping the average citizen safe; it is about wielding out-of-control power by the police, state and federal agencies.

The newspaper was referring to the attempt of the U.S. Secretary of State to achieve a ceasefire between Gaza and Israel with the help of Turkey and Qatar.

A government oversight agency says the Pentagon has lost track of more than 40 percent of the firearms it has provided to Afghanistan’s security forces, prompting officials to contemplate a “carrot and stick” approach to arming the fledgling military.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In other words, you are paying to arm BOTH sides!
