No benefit of omega-3 supplements for cognitive decline, study shows

While some research suggests that a diet high in omega-3 fatty acids can protect brain health, a large clinical trial by researchers at the National Institutes of Health found that omega-3 supplements did not slow cognitive decline in older persons. With 4,000 patients followed over a five-year period, the study is one of the largest and longest of its kind. It was published today in the Journal of the American Medical Association.

Possible Biden run puts Obama fundraising network on high alert

The possibility that Vice President Biden may jump into the 2016 presidential campaign is convulsing the network of wealthy Democrats that financed President Obama’s two White House bids, galvanizing fundraisers underwhelmed by Hillary Rodham Clinton’s performance.

A wide swath of party financiers is already convinced that Biden will make a late entry into the race and a sizeable number are now contemplating backing him, including some who have already signed on with Clinton, according to more than a dozen top Democratic fundraisers around the country.

Microsoft Increases Secrecy; Expands Spyware to Windows 7 and 8

So, now that Microsoft has convinced some 50 million users to "update" to Windows 10 (with more than 14 million of them doing it in only the first 24 hours the download was available), it seems to have its sights set on those who have heeded the warnings about Windows 10 being spyware. By sending these Windows updates — many of which will be downloaded and installed by default — Microsoft is expanding its spyware empire.

Why Plunging Oil Prices Are Bad News For Tesla, GM

With oil below $40 a barrel and gas prices at the pump hovering near a six-and-a-half year low, shares of top automakers should be pedal to the metal.

Instead the brakes are on.

One of the factors dragging oil down is weak global economic growth — which is also weighing on automakers.

Visual of Global Military Expenditures

How did the US propel itself so far ahead, to the point that it could, alone, comprise about half of global military spending?

Professor of history at Cornell University: “The idea that the commodification and suffering and forced labor of African-Americans is what made the United States powerful and rich is not an idea that people necessarily are happy to hear. Yet it is the truth.”

Even divided in half, the two halves of the US would still be tied for the lead in global military spending, 89 billion dollars each ahead of the number two spender, China.

NYT calls out Coca-Cola’s harmful junk food science while ignoring Monsanto’s fraudulent GMO science

The New York Times recently published an in-depth article on one of its blogs exposing the Coca-Cola Company’s efforts to promote flawed science downplaying the importance of cutting calories — particularly empty calories — in order to lose weight. The company has been enlisting scientists to push the discredited idea that how much you eat doesn’t matter when it comes to losing weight as long as you exercise enough.

Ukrainian sniper kills civilian in Donetsk - DPR

"A civilian of the village of Trudovskiye in the Petrovsky District [the western outskirts of Donetsk] was killed by a shot from a VSU sniper. The injured woman died on the spot. The bullet hit her head," the Donetsk News Agency quoted Zhukovsky as saying. He said the woman was about 60 years old. She was near her home at the moment of the shot.
The Petrovsky District of Donetsk has constantly been under fire from the Ukrainian army and national battalions. The first shelling of residential areas there was registered in July last year.
Massive shelling of residential neighborhoods, including with the use of aviation, has killed thousands and led to a humanitarian disaster in east Ukraine since Kiev in April 2014 announced the start of an "antiterrorism operation" there, which involved the Armed Forces, the Interior Ministry’s National Guard and volunteer battalions made up of Euromaidan activists, many of whom hold far-right and neo-Nazi views.

Russia, Europe agree on developing ExoMars project

Russia’s Federal Space Corporation (Roscosmos) and the European Space Agency (ESA) have signed an agreement on further developing the ExoMars project, Roscosmos spokesman Igor Burenkov said on Wednesday.
Both agencies also preliminarily agreed a schedule of lunar missions, the Roscosmos spokesman said.
Certain political tension exists today between Russia, Europe and America over the Ukraine events and the ESA considers it important to develop and strengthen cooperation in the space sphere, ESA Head Johann-Dietrich Woerner said.
The agreement on implementing the ExoMars joint program was signed in March 2013. The mission’s first orbital spacecraft under the project is expected to be launched in early 2016, after which a Mars robotic vehicle will be dispatched. It is expected to touch the Martian surface in 2018.

Russian lawmaker calls Poland’s suggestion to step up pressure on Russia "shortsighted"

"The leaders of Poland and Estonia sacrifice their countries’ long-term interests for the sake of misinterpreted short-term benefits," Klintsevich said. He noted that "Poland was another headache for Germany." "While German Chancellor Angela Merkel, including at the recent tripartite meeting on Ukraine in Berlin, speaks about her country’s desire to normalize relations with Russia, the Polish president declares just the opposite.

"They are facing the maximum penalty on all counts. You should not even doubt what the court’s decision will be," he told the press briefing.
Matios noted that both detainees "had been granted access to lawyers and defense at the expense of Ukraine" and promised that the trial "would be public."
According to the military prosecutor, there is evidence that Alexandrov and Yerofeyev had allegedly "killed Ukrainians in the country."

About 1,000 Ukrainian troopers die in Ilovaisk encirclement in 2014 — investigators

According to the temporary investigation commission set up to investigate the encirclement of Ukrainian troops near Ilovaisk in August-September 2014, the death toll from the Ilovaisk tragedy has reached a thousand people, Andriy Senchenko, the commission’s head, told a news conference in Kiev on Wednesday.
"Our commission has managed to make only indirect assessment of the losses in all the episodes of the Ilovaisk events. The death toll amounts to 1,000 people," Senchenko said.
"In order to be honest about the losses, every military unit that took part in various stages of the Ilovaisk operation should give an answer to the following questions: how many servicemen died directly on the battlefield; how many troopers died of wounds in hospitals and how many are missing," Senchenko explained.

Marcy Borders became known as the "dust lady" after a photo showed her covered in dust as she escaped the World Trade Center during the attacks.

Ms Borders, a mother of two, died on Monday, her family said on Facebook.

Should Hillary Clinton Suspend Her Campaign?

Growing national security questions about Hillary Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server during her time as secretary of State are drowning out much of her message as a presidential candidate and causing many of her fellow Democrats to worry about the future of her campaign. Is it time for Clinton to put her campaign on temporary hold?

Voters are almost evenly divided on that question: the latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 46% of Likely U.S. Voters believe Clinton should suspend her campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination until all of the legal questions about her use of the private e-mail server are resolved. Nearly as many (44%) disagree. Nine percent (9%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

That 2009 order, EO 13526, lays out the rules for "classifying, safeguarding and declassifying national security information." It states that the authority to declassify rests with the intelligence agency that originated the information.

Ukraine Peace Agreement Is Dead and Rotting

The Minsk-2 ceasefire agreement is dead but no one wants to bury the rotting corpse. Since it was signed in February of this year the Donbas governments and Russia have bent over backward to comply with the terms of that agreement hoping against hope that the Kiev junta would do the same. They hoped in vain.
Poroshenko and his fascist allies instead have refused to change the constitution to accommodate the concerns of the Donbas republics, have tried to suppress the Communist Party and other parties in opposition, have refused to withdraw heavy weaponry from the line of contact, have maintained increasingly heavy artillery attacks on the civilian populations and areas and cut off routes for essential foodstuffs, medical aid and technical equipment.

Mystery Surrounding the Malaysian Airlines MH17 Crash: US Attempts to Frame Russia

The US and its allies wanted Russia branded with a scarlet letter. They manoeuvred Putin into a no-win situation: appear submissive or appear a mass murderer. Heads I win, tails you lose. They introduced into the UN Security Council a draft resolution on the formation of a special tribunal for the crashed Malaysian liner, containing a reference to Chapter VII, the deadliest of all, dealing with “threat to the peace, breach of the peace, or act of aggression” and authorising use of force. If such a resolution would pass, it would mean Russia gave up its sovereignty. Even in the unlikely case of fair trial, the impact of such a submission would be huge. And the trial would be by a hostile court for whom Truth Is No Defence.

The Insidious Relationship between The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Big Pharma

I’ve been writing and speaking about dangerous medical drugs for almost 30 years, and I haven’t seen any limits placed on the basic FDA-Pharma partnership. This isn’t case of seeing a) government or b) corporations as the basic criminal. They’re both criminals, in collaboration with each other.

In a half-sane society, the big drug companies would have been prosecuted to the sky long ago. Their charters to do business in any state would have been revoked. Their CEOs, executives, and scientists would have been put behind bars for life. Even a limited federal government would have done that.

Here is where I’m in accord with Libertarians: people have the right and the freedom to refuse medication, under any circumstances, even where the experts claim death will be the inevitable outcome. And people have the right to ingest any compounds they decide might help them.

NATO Military Buildup on Russia’s Doorstep: Who Is Doing the Saber-Rattling in Eastern Europe?

Over the past year and a half, NATO armed forces have almost doubled the number of military exercises they have staged near the Russian border: between 2012 and 2013 they conducted an average of 95 such training events per year, but there have already been 150 so far in 2015, and flights by reconnaissance aircraft along the Russian frontier have increased tenfold.

But in an attempt to unfairly place the blame on Russia for such exercises, the London-based European Leadership Network issued a report on Aug. 12 that uses a flawed methodology to compare one type of exercise held in Russia in 2015 with another kind of military drill organized by NATO this year. Criticism was only leveled at the large number of troops involved in the Russian exercise, because the alliance’s drill was smaller on that scale. The report’s purpose was obvious: to shift the entirety of the West’s own culpability for war preparations in Europe onto the Russians.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg; every time you accuse Russia of being the "aggressor", but can offer absolutely no tangible proof of these allegedly "aggressive actions", you lose any degree of credibility you might have ever once had.

I would strongly counsel restraint regarding any possible military conflict against Russia.

And if you think Afghanistan has been a debacle for NATO (and there is no other nice way to put it, sir), a war with Russia may well be a classic, horrific epic fail for NATO.

I would strongly and politely suggest that you may want to assist in getting Europe's own house in order, and work with those European nations overrun with desperate and displaced refugees, fleeing from wars of the US's and the West's making, to offer some humanity and dignity to those people who cannot ever go home again.

Perhaps, in this manner, NATO may redeem its reputation.

Netanyahu Sidelined As UK Re-Opens British Embassy in Teheran

Binyamin Netanyahu has been left sidelined as UK re-opens its embassy in Teheran in anticipation of renewed diplomatic and commercial ties between these two major world economies and as European firms race for Iranian oil projects worth up to $185 billion.

In the meantime, however, the Israeli government, with zero oil and dependent on imports, has instructed AIPAC, its foreign affairs agency in Washington, to make every effort – including the spending of $20 million – to try to persuade members of the American House of Representatives to overturn the agreed deal between the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany, with Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, regarding a US-led war to "neutralize" Iran for you: thank you, sir, but ABSOLUTELY NOT.

The American people are war-weary, and war-skeptical, to say nothing of having had to shoulder the enormous financial burdens on this country which have been undertaken to fund those debacles which are, and were, Afghanistan, Yemen, Iraq, Libya, and Somalia.

IF Israel feels that Iran MUST be neutralized, American citizens strongly suggest that Israel, which has one of the finest, most modern militaries on the planet (paid for with American tax dollars and nuclear armed) can do the job perfectly well. If Tel Aviv believes that Iran should be attacked, it should be Israelis who fight, die, and are maimed for life; not American military.

We'll just sit back and eat popcorn while you and Iran fight, and see just what Vlad Putin will do at that point; it ought to be a very interesting response, sir, because Russian civilian and military personnel have stated, unequivocally, that if Iran is attacked, Russia will come to its aid militarily.

And were I you, sir, I would not bet against that.

13,000 fall into homelessness every month in L.A. County, report says

About 13,000 people on public assistance tumble into homelessness every month in Los Angeles County, according to a new study that experts say provides the clearest picture yet of extreme poverty in the region.

Although many quickly find work or rely on family to get off the streets, the number experiencing "continuous, unremitting, chronic homelessness" continues to grow, even after 10,000 people were housed over the last three years, according to the report being released Tuesday by the Economic Roundtable, a nonprofit research group in Los Angeles.

The report recommended that the welfare system intervene to help children and young adults who become homeless before their condition becomes chronic.

"Prevention is critical for reducing the number of people who experience homelessness as well as the number who become chronically homeless," the study said. "Housing does not provide a solution until the pathways into homelessness are narrowed."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That's 156,000 LA residents slipping into homelessness in the greater LA area every year.

And it doesn't seem to matter which party is in power in this country, because the constant outsourcing/offshoring continues to be unrelenting.

IF the US government's purpose to this practice is to effectively eviscerate and destroy America's middle class, they are making what has to be characterized as a terrific start in Southern California.

Fracking triggered 2014 earthquake in northeastern B.C.

Fracking triggered a 4.4-magnitude earthquake in northeastern B.C. last year, CBC News has learned, making it one of world's largest earthquakes ever triggered by the controversial process.

B.C.'s Oil and Gas Commission confirmed the cause of the earthquake in an email statement to CBC this week, saying it was "triggered by fluid injection during hydraulic fracturing."

The 4.4-magnitude quake was felt in Fort St. John and Fort Nelson in August 2014. It was preceded by a 3.8-magnitude earthquake in late July, also caused by fracking.

B.C.'s Oil and Gas Commission told CBC that several companies were doing hydraulic fracturing in the area at the time, and several more were disposing of fracking waste.

But the commission says it was Progress Energy's operations that were "associated with triggering this event."

Complaint claims US taxpayer dollars subsidizing Jewish terrorism in Israel

Taxpayer dollars in the United States and Israel are subsidizing Jewish terrorism against Arabs, a complaint filed with the New York state Attorney General’s Office alleges.

The accusations follow a recent expose by Israel’s Channel 10 about the work of the 13-year-old Israeli nonprofit Honenu, which provides financial support to Jews convicted of or on trial for violence against Palestinians, including so-called price tag attacks in the West Bank. The television program aired earlier this month in the aftermath of the July 31 firebombing of a Palestinian home in the West Bank village of Duma that killed an 18-month-old boy and his father. No suspects were arrested in the attack, but Jewish extremists are suspected. The attackers scrawled the Hebrew word for “revenge” at the site of the arson.

I don't know if this complaint will get any real traction, but the Rabbinic Call for Human Rights deserves praise, in my world, for taking a stand against Israeli extremist violence against Palestinians.

One Year After War, People of Gaza Still Sit Among the Ruins

The men of Shejaiya still come daily to sit vigil in the desolate ruins of their neighborhood, drinking tea and playing chess. But these days, there are also clusters of construction workers on Shejaiya’s dirt paths, finally pouring a few cement foundations and hammering together wood planks.

Fouad Harara, 56, arrives at his house on Montar Street before 6 a.m. to check the previous day’s work against his thick wad of engineering blueprints. He returns at midday with chicken and rice for the 10 men who have, over the past four weeks, completed the cinder-block ground floor where Mr. Harara plans to revive his electrical-services business and erected pylons for the second of seven sketched stories.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Remember; this is what your US tax dollars do for Israel in Gaza.

And take one good, hard look at that picture, and imagine, for one moment, that was YOUR building, bombed to smithereens, and there was no place to go.

Talmud and Taboo

I greatly enjoyed watching David Duke’s recent taboo-busting confrontation with Alex Jones. Duke excelled, getting his facts across in a calm and almost irresistible manner. Even during the earliest stages of the debate Jones looked ill-informed and uneasy, resorting, as so many commentators have when confronted by Duke’s erudition, to giggling juvenile jibes at KKK “wizards, goblins and cyclops.”

As the show came to its conclusion I found myself reflecting on an earlier taboo-busting confrontation involving Duke, and the broader implications of decisions to silence discussion of negative Jewish influences on our society. We are all well aware that this topic is off-limits in mainstream discourse. What I am instead referring to is the taboo as it exists in the alternative sphere, specifically in the political and cultural expressions of White advocacy.

At Least 40 Killed as Fighting Spreads in Central Yemen

While last week’s fighting in Yemen focused on the city of Taiz, it is now spreading elsewhere in the central portion of the country, with significant fighting in Mukayris, in the Bayda Province, leaving at least 40 people dead today.

After pro-Saudi forces captured the southern port of Aden, both sides were believed to be focusing on Taiz as a key route between Aden and the Houthi-held capital of Sanaa. Mukayris is a backup plan with Taiz turning into such a mess, as it too lies on one of the nation’s few major highways, connecting Sanaa to the southern coast.

Today’s fighting in the area left 19 Houthis, 15 pro-Saudi fighters, and another six civilians slain. Through 150 days the Saudi war against Yemen has left some 4,500 killed, including a massive number of civilians.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government-enabled collective punishment the Saudis are meting out against civilians in Yemen is a moral abomination. It has been engineered to remind the Yemenite people (and the world) that when a US government installs its puppet as that country's president, those citizens of that country should never, ever believe that they can throw the guy out of office, no matter how lousy, corrupt, or awful that president's leadership might be.

Centcom Skewed ISIS War Intel To Be More Upbeat

The perennial positivity of all public Pentagon assessments on the war against ISIS, despite major, glaring losses on the ground, has been a matter of no small controversy for awhile, and has also successfully kept the elected officials who are on the receiving end of those assessments maintaining the war strategy as-is.

Even the Pentagon is less confident in how this is happening these days, and the matter is now the subject of an internal investigation being carried out by the Inspectors General, focusing on Central Command (Centcom) deliberately “reworking” the conclusions of several assessments produced by the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) to seem more upbeat on the war.

According to one of the DIA analysts, the agency was providing “draft” versions of their analyses to Centcom, and Centcom was editing the conclusions wholesale to make the war sound like it was going better, then passing along the edited versions to policymakers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This kind of behaviour, on the part of Centcom, is like touching up an x-ray to assure a patient they don't have cancer.

Of course, at the heart of this deception is the reality the ISIS is a US-made monster, and the "raison d'etre" for continued incursions into the Middle East, for their resources, and to insure those resources are only purchasable with US Dollars.

Pakistan Cancels Talks With India, Citing Restrictions

Pakistan announced Saturday that it was pulling out of talks with India scheduled to begin Sunday in New Delhi, saying the conditions set by India for the meeting were not acceptable.

The decision came as the two countries traded barbs over Pakistan’s plans to meet with Kashmiri separatist leaders while in India.

The disagreement weighed heavily on both sides as each positioned itself to blame the other for the failure to hold the talks, which were to be held on Sunday and Monday. India had also stressed that it wanted terrorism to be the only item on the agenda while Pakistan wanted to discuss the dispute over the Kashmir region, which is claimed by both sides.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Both India and Pakistan are losing an historic opportunity to do the right thing for Kashmir.

The right thing to do would be to schedule a referendum for Kashmir, with the question asked: do Kashmiris want independence, alignment with India, or alignment with Pakistan?!?

Then, let the people of Kashmir decide
. Peaceful self-determination will give this violence-afflicted area a time to heal, and move forward.

All of these destroyers are equipped with modern PRO sea basing "Idžis" ( Aegis ), which is one of the most important parts of the global PRO, which is distributed around the world, despite existing agreements with Russia. The official reason for reinforcing the Mediterranean grouping is - withdrawal from combat duty PRO missiles "Patriot" ( Patriot ), which are deployed on the territory of Turkey.

Saudi Arabia Beheads Nearly Twice As Many People As ISIS So Far This Year

In January, a Muslim woman from Myanmar screamed “I did not kill” and pled with her attackers for mercy, but they showed none. In the center of an intersection, she was publicly beheaded in front of spectators, her death caught covertly on video.

It’s the kind of horrifying tableau that has become almost commonplace in Western media, as it plays out each time ISIS claims its latest victims. But this woman, Laila Bint Abdul Muttalib Basim, wasn’t a victim of ISIS, but one of 110 prisoners executed by Saudi Arabia so far this year. In fact, this U.S. ally has beheaded almost twice as many prisoners as ISIS in 2015 and may be on pace to achieve a record-breaking number of executions.

Iran’s PressTV reported on Basim’s death along with several others, both foreigners and Saudi nationals, in July:

“Basim then screamed as a sword-wielding man struck her neck. Second and third blows completed the beheading and authorities swiftly removed her body from the road.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When human rights gets in the way of "doing business", the US government has a very ugly, and consistent, habit of turning a blind eye, as they have with Saudi Arabia.

I would like to politely remind this Administration that to some degree, one is judged... by the company one keeps.

The station, WDBJ7 in Roanoke, Virginia, said the reporter Alison Parker, 24, and the cameraman, Adam Ward, 27, died in the incident.

New Defense Department Manual Allows Journalists To Be Held As 'Unprivileged Belligerents'

New Defense Department guidelines allow commanders to punish journalists and treat them as "unprivileged belligerents" if they believe journalists are sympathizing or cooperating with the enemy.

The Law of War manual, updated to apply for the first time to all branches of the military, contains a vaguely worded provision that military commanders could interpret broadly, experts in military law and journalism say. Commanders could ask journalists to leave military bases or detain journalists for any number of perceived offenses.

"In general, journalists are civilians," the 1,180 page manual says, but it adds that "journalists may be members of the armed forces, persons authorized to accompany the armed forces, or unprivileged belligerents."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is so anti-First Amendment, and such a sickeningly "slippery slope" when it comes to persecuting reporters for perhaps telling the truth, rather than providing a cover for recruiting "militants", I hardly know where to begin, and I hope that it gets challenged, and immediately, all the bloody way up to the Supreme Court.

And to anyone in the DOD who might not know; I am a Methodist and Christian pacifist. That means that I never, EVER advocate violence; I advocate logic and and thoughtful response to resolving a problem.

So then, if I calmly point out a moment in the thinking of this government that is illogical,and both ham-fistedly and pig-headedly wrong, in terms of this government actually doing right by the people it allegedly represents, does that make me a "terrorist"?!?

Apparently, according to the DOD, the answer is yes.

Welcome to 21st century Amerika, my friends, where logic and truth ....have become criminalized.

At 66, I do not recognise the United States of America anymore, and that is a very painful realization for someone who very much cares about her country.

FLASHBACK - THE LIE OF THE (LAST) CENTURY

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

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

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

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is time to repost this article, in part because the Chilcot Inquiry is making it clear that Tony "The Phony" Blair and George Bush need to be tried as war criminals, and also because many of the same lies used to trick us into war on Iraq are being repeated to trick us into war on Iran.

Blair’s 'Illegal' War on Iraq: the Net Widens

The decision to join the US in the invasion of Iraq in 2003 proved controversial, with a complete failure to get international agreement for a UN Security Council Resolution clearly backing the invasion. The UK Prime Minister at the time, Tony Blair, came in for criticism for his close relationship with the – then – US President George W. Bush and there has been pressure ever since to uncover what the two men agreed to do and when.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Downing Street memo tells us what happened. Bush and Blair decided to conquer Iraq and came up with the cock and bull story about nuclear weapons to trick us into throwing the lives of our children into the grinder!

China's Turbulent Stock Market Slips Once Again

China's turbulent stock markets slipped again on Wednesday, as a double-barrelled blast of central bank stimulus failed to convince investors of Beijing's ability to jolt the world's second biggest economy out of its slowdown.

After watching share prices tumble around 25 percent in a little more than a week, the People's Bank of China re-entered the fray late on Tuesday, cutting interest rates and further loosening bank lending restrictions.

The response from China's two main stock indexes - never reliable barometers of the domestic economy - was typically erratic, lurching between gains and losses of more than 3 percent before ending the day modestly lower.

European markets had risen sharply immediately after the People's Bank of China's move on Tuesday, but U.S. indexes turned negative after an initial leap, setting the tone for a lackluster session in Asia on Wednesday

All out Warfare on Political Correctness

The bastion of Totalitarian Collectivism is based upon a culture of political correctness. Before authoritarians impose their rigid formulas for shaping and defining a false reality, the ground needs to be prepared for molding public opinion. The details and narrative of mind control works best when people have already adopted an urbanity of collective singularity. The nature of “TC” is the next level beyond political correctness.

Peer pressure may be expected during school adolescence but part of growing up requires a level of maturity to distinguish between facts, moral conduct and social values arrived at through sound and rigorous intellectual scrutiny. The primary source of mental malady comes out of media. As the media covers their daily inventions from papier-mâché substance from toilet paper sagas the public sinks deeper into the fog of war. The conflict that pervades the minds of the remaining rational thinkers becomes a struggle for survival.

US lawmaker wants Israel military aid halted over Palestinian deaths

“It is time for a strong and unequivocal statement of US commitment to the human rights of Palestinian children living under Israeli occupation,” McCollum wrote in the August 18 letter, which was released to the public on Monday.

McCollum urged State Department officials to determine whether the killing of the teens was in violation of the Leahy Act, a US human rights law that prohibits the State and Defense departments from providing military assistance to foreign military units that violate human rights with impunity.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good for McCollum (who I presume understands she is about to retire from Congress), but the US Government already ignores the Symington Amendment to the Foreign Appropriations Act and the Glenn Act, so I would not hold my breath that they will give a bagel's hole about the Leahy Act!

Privatization is at the core of Fascism

Privatizations are increasingly fashionable, such as in Greece, Ukraine, the U.S., and UK — and privatizations are a central feature of fascism.

The core of fascism is the idea that there is some elite, whether ‘Aryan’ or ‘chosen by God,’ or otherwise, who should run things, and that everyone else exists in order to serve that elite. Inevitably, this official elite consists of the people whom the powers-that-be assign as constituting the owners of almost everything that’s valuable. Increasingly, things become those people’s private possession — even what was formerly a public asset becomes now private. Beaches become private. Schools become private. Natural resources become private. It’s not just the art that was stolen by the Nazis and privatized to them and/or shown at museums that they control, which becomes private; it’s whatever the elite want to have, and to control: it’s all now private. That’s the fascist ideal.

A message to Libertarians about the FDA

Libertarians see big government as an obstruction to a free-market economy.

Some Libertarians believe the FDA is unnecessarily restraining commerce by driving up the cost of drugs and slow-tracking the approval of new drugs.

This is not how the game works. The FDA has clients, and those clients are the drug companies. On the whole, the FDA speeds up its drug approvals and thereby unleashes a torrent of toxic compounds on the public, killing, at a conservative estimate, 100,000 Americans every year, or a million Americans per decade.

‘Bullying’ – BBC Political Editor’s Bizarre Term For The Public Resisting The Establishment

The BBC's Nick Robinson has made a career out of telling the public what leading politicians say and do; sometimes even what they 'think'. This stenography plays a key role in 'the mainstream media', given that a vital part of statecraft is to keep the public suitably cowed and fearful of threats from which governments must protect us. The 'free press' requires compliant journalists willing to disseminate elite-friendly messages about global 'peace', 'security' and 'prosperity', uphold Western ideology that 'we are the good guys', and not question power deeply, if at all.

But when a senior journalist complains of 'intimidation and bullying' by the public, making comparison's to 'Vladimir Putin's Russia', the mind really boggles at the distortion of reality. Those were claims made by Robinson, the BBC's outgoing political editor, using an appearance at the Edinburgh international book festival to settle a few scores.

FLASHBACK 2005 - 'The Chosen': Getting In

A few years ago, I wrote a book about the rise of a new educated class, the people with 60's values and 90's money who go to Starbucks, shop at Whole Foods and drive Volvos. A woman came up to me after one of my book talks and said, "You realize what you're talking about is the Jews taking over America."

My eyes bugged out, but then I realized that she was Jewish and she knew I was, too, and between us we could acknowledge there's a lot of truth in that statement. For the Jews were the vanguard of a social movement that over the course of the 20th century transformed the American university system and the nature of the American elite.

Graham was the latest presidential hopeful to tangle with the thorny hypothetical posed to many in the burgeoning Republican field over the past week: Would they have ordered the invasion of Iraq knowing that the nation did not have weapons of mass destruction?

"If I knew then what I know now, a land invasion may not have been the right answer," Graham told CNN's Wolf Blitzer on "The Situation Room," detailing the record of abuse and rogue behavior by Saddam Hussein. "He had a lot to do with destabilizing the region."
