Fascism Grips Israel

Zeev Sternhell is an Israeli historian, political scientist and outspoken critic of emerging Israeli fascism.

Signs reached a peak during Operation Protective Edge, he says. Democracy granting equality to everyone is nonexistent.

Sternhell deplores Israel's settlement project. He supports Palestinian self-determination. He believes establishing a Palestinian state is essential.

What passes for Israeli democracy "reached a new nadir in the current war," he stresses. Fascist "indicators…definitely exist here."

The United Police States of America

Ferguson, Missouri’s police department has released its report on the August 9th shooting death of teenager Michael Brown, a redacted document that ACLU attorney Tony Rothert says violates Missouri’s Sunshine Law by omitting key information.

Brown’s death at the hands of a Ferguson police officer provoked impassioned demonstrations and debates on police brutality and the very nature of policing in the United States, leading many observers to wonder if Americans are now living in a full-fledged police state.

The 21st century Blitzkrieg

Two horrors have dwelt in my mind for the last twenty years, ever since I read reports about terrorist groups while an impressionable young intelligence officer.

The first involves the use of power tools as instruments of torture; drills, industrial sanders, angle grinders. This is no secret now and the meme has been much used and abused by Hollywood and series such as "24", but I still feel uncomfortable every time I am dragged into the "boy toy" section of a home improvement mega-store.

Alan Hart: On course for Holocaust II…..?

This is the most controversial article the gentile me has ever written or is ever likely to write, but I believe that what I am going to say needs to be said and should be widely debated if the rising, global tide of “anti-Israelism” (I prefer the term anti-Zionism) is not to be transformed into anti-Semitism on a scale that could lead, in a foreseeable future, to Holocaust II, my shorthand for another great turning against the Jews.

All this talk of an ‘apocalyptic’ threat is simply childish

Chuck Hagel and Martin Dempsey were pure Hollywood. They only needed Tom Cruise!

"Apocalyptic." "End-of-days strategic vision." "Beyond anything we have ever seen." "An imminent threat to every interest we have." "Beyond just a terrorist group." "We must prepare for everything."

So are they Martians? Alien invaders from Planet X? Destroyer spacecraft from the movie Independence Day?

The word movie is the clue. Chuck Hagel and Martin Dempsey were pure Hollywood. It only needed Tom Cruise at their press conference to utter the words “Mission impossible”. Who writes this God-awful script? Can’t the US Defence Secretary and his joint chiefs chairman do better than this?

Federal Law Ordering US Attorney General To Gather Data On Police Excessive Force Has Been Ignored For 20 Years

Federal Law Ordering US Attorney General To Gather Data On Police Excessive Force Has Been Ignored For 20 Years

Are police officers getting worse or is this apparent increase in excessive force nothing more than a reflection of the increase in unofficial documentation (read: cameras) and public scrutiny? What we do know is that as crime has gone down, police forces have escalated their acquisitions of military gear and weapons. With options for lethal and less-lethal force continually expanding, it seems that deployment of force in excess of what the situation requires has become the new normal, but it's tough to find hard data that backs up these impressions.

CDC Whistleblower Links MMR Vaccine to Autism; Story Promptly Censored

“…it’s the lowest point in my career, that I went along with that paper.”

— CDC Whistleblower William Thompson, PhD

(Truthstream Media) Shocking revelations about alleged CDC misconduct in a study investigating the link between autism and vaccines has been made even worse by an active campaign to censor and silence the issue in the media.

A CDC whistleblower involved in a pivotal study defending official assurances of vaccine safety broke his silence to expose how the study he was involved in massaged the data to cover-up a 340% increase in autism risk for African American children under age three who received the MMR vaccine. William W. Thompson, PhD. was escorted out of CDC headquarters a few days ago, and presumably fired from his position, after being identified as the whistleblower...

Shell's ex-CEO says sanctions on Russia don't work

The former head of Royal Dutch Shell, Jeroen van der Veer, has said sanctions on Russia just “lead to frustration”, as they did not produce their desired effect and led to more sanctions.

“The sanctions do not work. They lead to counter sanctions, which lead to frustration and never solve anything. (Russian President Vladimir) Putin’s popularity in Russia does not wane in the wake of the sanctions. It increases,” Jeroen van der Veer said on Sunday during a Dutch TV program.

He said constructive political dialogue was the first thing Russia and Ukraine needed to establish, though acknowledging it would be difficult.

“Moscow and Kiev should be willing to talk and Russia should respect the Ukrainian borders,” he said.

Van der Veer began working for Shell in 1971 and was its CEO until 2009.

In July the West imposed sectorial economic sanctions on Russia, including a ban on selling it dual–use technology, and access to sensitive oil technology

Fallout from campus sexual assault hysteria: College men now suspicious of women

Thanks to an increased focus on sexual assaults on college campuses – mostly due to an overblown statistic claiming 20 percent of college women have been sexually assaulted – young college men are starting to rethink how they talk to women.

At first glance that might seem like a good thing – men learning to be more respectful of women and not be so rapey – but that’s not what this is.

This is about men actually avoiding contact with women because they’re afraid a simple kiss or date could lead to a sexual assault accusation.

Bloomberg reporters John Lauerman and Jennifer Surane interviewed multiple men from colleges like Harvard and Stanford who expressed concern over what was once known as a "hook-up culture" but is now labeled by feminists as "rape culture." The change in terminology ensures that all responsibility is placed on men, just because of their gender.

Part 1: Dirty secrets of the worst charities

The worst charity in America operates from a metal warehouse behind a gas station in Holiday, Fla.

Every year, Kids Wish Network raises millions of dollars in donations in the name of dying children and their families.

Every year, it spends less than 3 cents on the dollar helping kids.

Most of the rest gets diverted to enrich the charity’s operators and the for-profit companies Kids Wish hires to drum up donations.

In the past decade alone, Kids Wish has channeled nearly $110 million donated for sick children to its corporate solicitors. An additional $4.8 million has gone to pay the charity’s founder and his own consulting firms.

No charity in the nation has siphoned more money away from the needy over a longer period of time.

But Kids Wish is not an isolated case, a yearlong investigation by the Tampa Bay Times and The Center for Investigative Reporting has found.

VA pays out $200 million for nearly 1,000 veterans’ wrongful deaths

An Iraq War veteran with post-traumatic stress disorder and a history of drug dependency is found dead on the floor of his room at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs hospital in West Los Angeles after doctors give him a 30-day supply of the anti-anxiety medication alprazolam and a 15-day supply of methadone.

In Shreveport, La., a veteran overdoses on morphine while housed in a locked VA psychiatric unit. In a Minnesota VA psych ward, a veteran shoots himself in the head. In Portland, Ore., a delusional veteran jumps off the roof of the VA hospital.

These are some of the deaths that resulted in more than $200 million in wrongful death payments by the Department of Veterans Affairs in the decade after 9/11, according to VA data obtained by The Center for Investigative Reporting.

Quasi-Governmental Psyops deployed to Steal our Future

Ever wonder how American Defense Policy is made which keeps leading America into illegal, Unconstitutional, unprovoked, undeclared perpetual Wars?

In this article you will be informed how Quasi-Governmental Top Policy-Makers use sophisticated Psyops to Mind-Kontrol and deceive Americans into supporting these crimes against humanity which they would never otherwise support.

It’s high time Americans learn how sophisticated quasi-governmental Think-Tanks and Defense Policy Boards (TTs/DPBs) steal their future by creating sophisticated Psyops and disseminating them through the Controlled Major Mass Media (CMMM).

It is important to realize that the 9/11/01 nuclear attack on America was imagined, created, woven into a major Psyop against the American Masses in secret, closed meetings in one of these TTs/DPBs and this Psyop was designed to create a huge lie designed to sucker America into another illegal Mideast war.

Looming Mining ‘Tsunami’ Set to Take Africa by Storm

Waking Times

As nations invest billions in extraction development, forests may suffer big losses.

Many of the minerals that enable our technology, back the value of our economies (or did at one time), and power our cities can be found in Africa. And yet the continent still remains something of an untapped resource, as the vast majority of mineral extraction occurs elsewhere. A new report published by a team of scientists from James Cook University in Cairns, Australia, documents a surging tide of foreign interest in mining in Africa and cautions that the sector’s unchecked development and expansion could devastate the environment.

Ukraine Parliament Speaker Says Military Operation Likely to End by October

Ukrainian Parliament Speaker Oleksandr Turchynov said Sunday that Kiev was apparently planning to end its military operation in the restive eastern territories by October, citing the need to hold an early parliamentary election.

What old rubber lips meant to say but couldn't, is that the real reason wanting to end its assault on the East of Ukraine by October is that winter will be fast approaching and Kiev will already be neck-deep in a mess of its own making.

Is Big Brother spying on your computer – with your own cell phone?

Did you know that those who have the right technology don’t need to access the microphone in your cell phone to listen to your conversations?

That's not all.

You may have missed this news but Georgia Tech and MIT came up with a way that they can actually spy on your computer activity through your cell phone in pretty much the same way as a keylogger does.

This is from the study’s conclusion:

Mobile phones contain an array of powerful sensors. While access to many of the most obvious sources of information is generally restricted, the use of a number of a number of other seemingly innocuous sensors is not. In this paper, we demonstrate that unfettered access to accelerometer data allows a malicious application to recover and decode the vibrations caused by keypresses on a nearby keyboard.

London hip-hop artist Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary key suspect in hunt for killer of American journalist James Foley

THE beheading of American journalist, James Foley, at the hands of ISIS militants shocked the world but forensic experts have revealed the video was probably staged, with the murder happening off camera.

The UK Times reported that an international forensic science company, which has worked for police forces across Britain, said there is no question Foley was beheaded but that camera trickery and post-production techniques look to have been used.

“I think it has been staged,” said one expert in visual forensics, after he was commissioned by The UK Times to examine the footage.

‘Islamic State’ head-choppers: The best enemy money can buy

The so-called Islamic State is not what it claims to be. Like the Federal Reserve, which is neither federal nor has any reserves, the Islamic State is neither Islamic nor a state. It is a terrorist group that was created by US intelligence and Zionist-allied mercenaries, trained at CIA bases in Jordan, and unleashed on the people of Syria and Iraq to destabilize those countries in service to Israel.

The realist faction of the US ruling elite, represented by President Obama and the Joint Chiefs of Staff, is genuinely alarmed by the rise of Islamic State. These realists believe the Middle East has already been sufficiently destabilized, so now it is time to move on to the real struggle against Russia, China, and the rising BRICS nations. They are concerned that Islamic State is becoming a Frankenstein’s monster that could wreak blowback on its creators.

But the ultra-Zionist faction, represented by AIPAC, JINSA, FDD (formerly PNAC) and the neoconservative dual citizens who dominate the Republican Party, loves Islamic State. For them, Islamic State is the best enemy that American taxpayers’ money can buy. It is the perfect vehicle for demonizing Islam and sealing the US-Israel relationship in American blood.

FBI agents to guard UK airports against jihadi fanatics

Three US officers from a specialist FBI counter-terror unit are expected to land at Heathrow on Tuesday, with another 10 arriving within the week and dozens more over coming months.

They will monitor suspect passengers as well as ­investigate “terror hot-spots” across Britain in the wake of the beheading of American James Foley in Iraq. Last night, however, critics claimed their arrival was an admission that cuts to police and the UK Border Force had left Britain out of its depth and overwhelmed in the war on terror.

Officially, US officers who have been monitoring terrorist activity ever since the 9/11 attacks in 2001 will liaise with the Metropolitan Police’s secretive SO15 counter-terrorism command and MI5.

However, there are fears they eventually intend to conduct their own parallel investigations and recruit their own informants in UK and European jihadi circles.

Foley murder video 'may have been staged'

But a study of the four-minute 40-second clip, carried out by an international forensic science company which has worked for police forces across Britain, suggested camera trickery and slick post-production techniques appear to have been used.

A forensic analyst told The Times that no blood can be seen, even though the knife is drawn across the neck area at least six times.

“After enhancements, the knife can be seen to be drawn across the upper neck at least six times, with no blood evidence to the point the picture fades to black,” the analysis said.

Sounds allegedly made by Foley do not appear consistent with what may be expected.

During Foley’s speech, there appears to be a blip which could indicate the journalist had to repeat a line.

Yet our government does nothing to hundreds of other Canadians who join a foreign military force to daily terrorize millions of people and often use explosives to kill thousands, most of whom are civilians.

The 16 Palestinian victims included a mother and her three children in their home, said a spokesman for the Ministry of Health, Ashraf al-Qidra.

'Thanks, Putin!': Finland flooded with cut-price 'Putin cheese' as Russia turns away European exports

Cheese lovers may want to consider a brief holiday in Finland, where Russian sanctions over Ukraine have prompted huge price cuts, causing a rush to supermarket chiller cabinets across the country.

One of Finland’s most popular cheeses, Oltermanni, is being sold at roughly half the usual price as retailers try to shift an influx of the product that had been destined for Russia.

Moments after the retailer, S Group, announced the reduction, the supermarket's website crashed with demand.

Such is the fame of the discount that Oltermanni has been dubbed “Putin cheese” and signs have popped up in stores thanking the Russian President.

Five rockets fired from Syria hit the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights overnight between Saturday and Sunday, the Israeli military said in a statement.

Israel's Ynet website news said that three rockets exploded in a settlement in the northern Golan Heights and two have hit an open space. No injuries or damages were immediately reported.

The rocket salvo was fired only a few hours after a rocket fired from southern Lebanon hit the Upper Galilee in northern Israel. A spokesperson with the police said that the rocket hit an empty building in an open area, with two children lightly wounded.

No group has immediately claimed responsibility for both incidents.

Councils call for change in junk mail laws to stop them being forced to sell voters' data

Councils will today call for a change in the law to prevent them having to sell voters’ personal details to junk mail firms.

Local authorities have come under fire from privacy campaigners for effectively aiding the junk mail barons who bombard families with unwanted leaflets and letters.

Details from the electoral roll are routinely sold on to direct marketing firms, estate agents, fast food outlets and others who contribute to Britain’s annual mountain of three billion items of junk mail.

Critics point out that cash-strapped councils make thousands of pounds a year by selling on voters’ details for as little as 15p a go.

The fight has largely destroyed the airport and scarred the capital, prompting diplomats, foreign nationals and thousands of Libyans to flee.

UN ‘leaders’ as corrupt as US/UK/Israel: We the People must demand arrests or suffer endless war

*hyperlinks live at source*
United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s official statements about Israel’s most recent armed attack upon Gaza are Orwellian lies of omission because they fail to uphold the one and only legal authority of the UN: to stop Wars of Aggression.

Allowing “developed nations” to have unlawful wars is consistent with UN history. A recent example is Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s silence for 18 months over the US/UK’s armed attacks and invasion of Iraq in official statements, to finally admit in 2004 when directly asked if that war is illegal:

“Yes, if you wish. I have indicated it was not in conformity with the UN Charter. From our point of view and from the Charter point of view it was illegal.”

Red Cross wins aid convoy battle

Russia’s East Ukraine humanitarian aid convoy had to crash the border to get the badly needed supplies into Lugansk today.

The security concerns for the Red Cross were the last hold up, and as expected, Kiev shelled the area overnight knowing that the Red Cross could not move under those conditions. Putin decided that the fooling around time was over and made the call to go in. God bless the man... the statesman once again.

I had been delaying writing this column for a few hours while awaiting the results of the closed-door UN Security Council meeting on Ukraine’s claims of having been invaded by a humanitarian aid convoy. I had prepared material about the “little green men” hiding in the flour bags, and the special midget Spetsnaz units that Putin had been saving as a secret weapon.

VICE founder, famous for truth telling, has history of lies

“Who’s heard of Vice Media? Wild, interesting effort to interest millennials who don’t read or watch established media. Global success,” tweeted Rupert Murdoch after a meeting with Smith.

Murdoch’s not the only media executive to meet with Smith — representatives from Hearst, Time Warner, Bertelsmann, Condé Nast, and even Google and YouTube have all met with him. Many have partnered with Smith.

But Smith already has a well-documented reputation for stretching the truth.

“The lie that launched an empire,” reads a section title in Smith’s Globe and Mail profile, referring to his penchant for overstating VICE’s value.

“Vice was built on lies,” Wired Magazine echoed in 2007.

ISIS Threatens America: ‘We Will Raise The Flag Of Allah In The White House’

The terror group President Barack Obama threatened to strike in Iraq Thursday evening is itself threatening to strike the American homeland

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This reeks of stolen incubators and Saddam's nuclear weapons.

At present there is only this one image found by Google of the threat made to fly the flag of Allah over the White House.



It is rather small, just 150x150 and I started wondering why this was the largest image of what is being promoted as the new Adam Gadahn. So I found the original video and grabbed a screencap from that.

Take a close look at the top of the beard and how sharp it is. It looks fake to me. This person's cap is slightly too small and looks brand new. His shirt is clean and pressed, also looking new. The vest he is wearing is not body armor but simply a belt of pouches sand serves no other purpose than to make him look "military" for the cameras.

This is yet another fake to sell us yet another war in Iraq, no different than the stolen incubator hoax that tricked us into the first Iraq war or the lies about Saddam's nuclear weapons that tricked us into the second. And frankly I do not think it will get much traction because for a lot of Americans ANY new flag flying over the White House looks like an improvement! :)

UPDATE: The US media is now replaying the Boco Haram, gambit, claiming that ISIS is kidnapping helpless women to commit horrible acts upon their bodies, like forcing them to watch reruns of The Hollywood Squares. The video being shown is very shaky, blurry, and overly compressed; dead giveaways that they don't want anyone to be able to take a close look for inconsistent details.

UPDATE: As it turns out, our caution with the story about ISIS saying they will raise the flag over the White House was well-founded. VICE media, the source of this story, has a long history of lies and deceptions!

UPDATE: I am bumping this to the top because there is a very heavy-handed online campaign to promote VICE News as the new go-to news source on the internet.

Obama’s ‘New World Order’ Quote Will Creep You Out Even If You’re Not a Conspiracy Theorist

The Washington Post‘s Chris Cilliza highlighted this excerpt [emphasis added]:

“But whether people see what’s happening in Ukraine, and Russia’s aggression towards its neighbors in the manner in which it’s financing and arming separatists; to what’s happened in Syria — the devastation that Assad has wrought on his own people; to the failure in Iraq for Sunni and Shia and Kurd to compromise — although we’re trying to see if we can put together a government that actually can function; to ongoing terrorist threats; to what’s happening in Israel and Gaza — part of peoples’ concern is just the sense that around the world the old order isn’t holding and we’re not quite yet to where we need to be in terms of a new order that’s based on a different set of principles, that’s based on a sense of common humanity, that’s based on economies that work for all people.”

Anti-govt forces ‘circle 1000s of Kiev troops, capture 2 tank battalions’ in E.Ukraine

After sustained defensive combat against Ukrainian troops in the self-proclaimed People’s Republic of Donetsk during August, rebels are now reporting of entrapping two large groups of Kiev troops and seizing military hardware in a counteroffensive.

The main headquarters of the DPR army has made a decision to stop operations in small groups and form full-bodied independent military units, the anti-Kiev forces say in a summary of their operations filed on Sunday.

They also say they are blocking a large “punitive force” near Alekseevskoe, Blagodatnoe, Voykovsky, Kuteinikovo, Ulyanovskoe and Uspenka.

Iran Destroyed Israeli UAV

The Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps announced on August 24, 2014 that they had destroyed an Israeli surveillance UAV flying above the centrifuges center in Natanz. The news was broadcast by al-Aalem channel and confirmed by Israeli newspaper Yediot Ahronot.

"Satanic Step"

"The air defense system downed the UAV with one missile," the Revolutionary Guard declared, adding "This Satanic step proves the aggressive character of Israel and adds another page in the blacklist of crimes committed by this entity."

Millions of Americans Are Vulnerable to Starvation

The cost of food has been steadily increasing in places like Thailand and Venezuela as evidenced by the fact that since the beginning of 2014, riots are occurring in countries that are suffering through extreme food shortages. These mass protests movements may all have one thing in common, increasing food prices are the cause of the civil unrest.

According to Dr. Yaneer Bar-Yam and his research colleagues at the New England Complex Systems Institute (NECSI), they are collectively stating that civil unrest, spurred by food shortages. may be anticipated for their effect by a mathematical model that correlates the variables of rising food costs, diminished and that are related to income and civil unrest. The present data suggests that America is ripe for the same kinds of civil disruption that we are witnessing in Thailand and Venezuela. How bad could the civil unrest become? Nobody can be certain except to say that America is entering into uncharted waters.

False Flag - The Movie!

Webmaster's Commentary: 


Click for larger image

I wish this were only humor, but right now we are seeing a repeat of the year 2001, where for months the corporate media promoted the idea of Al Qaeda and Osama Bin Laden as Uber Villains we were supposed to be afraid of, because they were coming to get us unless we got them first. So intense was the obvious advertising to promote the Osama "brand" that I wrote an article over at Free Republic in August of 2001 suggesting some grand deception was being planned centered on Osama, mere weeks before 9-11.

ISIS is starting to look like a repeat of that same propaganda strategy. ISIS, originally (if not still) a creation of the US and Israel, is being heavily promoted to us as the new replacement for Al Qaeda, the boogie man we are all supposed to be afraid of and blame when a loud "bang" happens. Apparently the US Government is totally convinced that We The People do not remember the fraud of 9-11, stolen Kuwaiti incubators, or Saddam's nukes, or Assad's gas, and think they can pull another fast one to get their war wagon back on track. But at this point, given that many of the ISIS video threats have already been exposed as hoaxes, together with the pathetic selfie with the ISIS flag in front of the White House, and the lame beheading video, we are being told that because of the wide open border with Mexico, ISIS is already here inside the United States, preparing to do something nasty, with the implication that they will be aided and supplied by the long list of nations the US wants to send your children off to invade! James Inhofe is making the rounds claiming that ISIS will blow up a US city, and Drudge is claiming Chicago will be the target!

White House Accuses Russia Of Painting Military Vehicles White; Merkel Agrees “Actions Represent Dangerous Escalation”

With no Instagram #selfie image or YouTube clip as proof (yet), The White House issued a statement proclaiming that today, in violation of its previous commitments and international law, Russian military vehicles painted to look like civilian trucks forced their way into Ukraine... and that Russia has no right to send vehicles, persons, or cargo of any kind into Ukraine, whether under the guise of humanitarian convoys or any other pretext, without the express permission of the government of Ukraine. Furthermore, the actions "only amplifies international concerns about Russia’s true intentions...for which it will bear additional consequences." If that sternly-worded email was not enough, President Obam took time away from the course on Martha's Vineyard to chat with Angela Merkel and then issued a joint statement somewhat sheepishly noting that this is "further provocation" and represents a "dangerous escalation."

Staged Reality of the Medical Cartel

“The suffering of people is all too real, but predators lay a grid of fake reality over it, and make billions of dollars—while they simultaneously avoid paying out billions of dollars as a result of law suits.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

“Muhammad Ali has ‘Parkinsonism?’ Nonsense. He has ‘Hit Too Many Times by Joe Frazier Damage.’ This isn’t a disease or a disorder.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

Let’s say there are a lot of people who take hammers and hit children over the head with them.

The connection between the hammer blows and the damage couldn’t be more obvious. Hammer-blow; skull; damage.

But now, researchers and pharmaceutical companies come up with an idea: “Let’s take this trend and create, cook up, invent, fabricate a new mental disorder—let’s name it Regressive Disorientation Disorder. RDD.”

And so they do.

Unidentified jets attack Libyan capital

Unidentified war planes have attacked targets in Libya’s capital shortly after militants from the city of Misrata took full control of the international airport in Tripoli.

Residents of the Libyan capital said on Sunday that they heard jets followed by blasts at dawn.

Over the past weeks, the airport, situated 30 kilometers south of Tripoli, has witnessed clashes between a group of militias, known as Fajir Libya, mainly comprised of men from Misrata, and Zintan forces.

On Saturday, Fajir Libya militiamen announced that they captured the airport from Zintan forces that held it since the fall of former Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi in 2011.

Libya’s parliament on the same day branded as “terrorists” the militias, saying, “The groups acting under the names of Fajr Libya and Ansar al-Sharia are terrorist groups and outlaws that are rising up against the legitimate powers.”

IN PHOTOS ~~ MARCH FOR JUSTICE IN STATEN ISLAND

Thousands marched in Staten Island today. They were protesting police brutality and abuse. They were demanding justice for the victims of that abuse. Eric Garner was placed in an illegal choke hold by a NYPD office several weeks ago. His crime? Selling illegal cigarettes. Despite his protestations and his repeated plea of “I can’t breathe,” despite the fact that he was already subdued, despite the fact that he was surround by cops, the officer continued to choke Mr. Garner. The result? Eric Garner died on the sidewalk, a victim, like so many others, of out-of-control police brutality. These police crimes are then followed by a disturbing lack of transparency and a failure of the justice system to indict, try and convict. Victims are invariably people of color.

Dr. Brian Hooker: Father of Vaccine-damaged Child and His Relentless Pursuit to Expose Fraud at the CDC

Health Impact News is not exclusively an outlet for news on the dangers of vaccines. It is one of many topics we cover that the mainstream media typically does not. However, we are in the midst of one of the most significant news events of the century, and as of the time of this writing, the mainstream media has completely ignored it.

That will change.

As we have already reported, a top researcher employed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has come forward as a whistle-blower, confessing to his participation in actively covering up data that clearly links vaccines to autism. (See: CDC Whistleblower: CDC Covered Up MMR Vaccine Link to Autism in African American Boys)

Starve or surrender: Cut off all food and water to Gaza, says Israeli general

Israeli Major-General Giora Eiland has urged that all food and water be cut off to Gaza’s nearly 1.8 million Palestinian residents – a major war crime and precisely the “starve or surrender” policy which the United States has condemned when used in Syria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Back in 1948, the Soviet Union blockaded the highway that connected West Berlin with West Germany. Their goal was to starve the West Berliners into abandoning their own government and accepting Soviet rule through the proxy of East Germany. Then too, the strategy was :surrender or die." The world responded to this crime by mounting the Berlin Airlift, which for over a year flew in food, medicine, and other needed supplies to keep West Berlin alive until the Soviet Union relented and allowed the highway to reopen.

Why are we not seeing the same response when Israel does the same thing to Gaza?

Bitter foes expect Kiwis to lose all cash

Two bitter enemies who fought over a multimillion-dollar distressed Australian mortgage fund now agree on one thing: they expect New Zealand investors to lose all their money.

Just under 3000 New Zealanders had about $140 million in the LM First Mortgage Income Fund (FMIF) in 2009 when it was frozen.

Now, some 18 months after LM's directors called in administrators, both LM's Kiwi founder, Peter Drake, and David Jansen, from fund manager Trilogy, which tried and failed to take over FMIF, believe the return to investors could be zero.

Court-appointed receiver BDO's most recent forecast return on August 4 was that investors would get just A15c a unit.

Jansen had a more gloomy forecast.

"The recovery is going to be zero," he said. "The BDO guys are saying maybe 18 cents in the dollar, but that's not projecting forwards and does not reflect either their fees and the legal fees that will have to be paid."

Scientists shocked to discover the true toxicity of fracking fluids; it's worse than we've been told

(NaturalNews) Earlier this month, scientists presented groundbreaking research at the American Chemical Society's (ACS) 248th National Meeting and Exposition regarding the potential dangers of hydraulic fracking.

The meeting featured nearly 12,000 presentations on a range of scientific topics. A team of researchers from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the University of the Pacific disclosed information they obtained from reviewing the contents used in the hydraulic fracking process.

Led by William Stringfellow, Ph.D., the study's results raised concerns about several ingredients used in the controversial drilling process. Stringfellow conducted the review in hopes of solving public debate over the controversial drilling.

It was confessed that "very little is known" about the potential health and environmental effects associated with the nearly 200 chemicals used to crack geological formations in the ground, releasing profitable natural oil and gas.

Poll: Majority of Gazans support peace, oppose disarmament

An overwhelming majority of Gaza residents support a long-term truce with Israel and oppose the disarmament of the Palestinian resistance, a poll released on Saturday showed.

The poll, which surveyed 1,000 Palestinians in Gaza from Aug. 14-19 and was conducted by the Palestinian Center for Public Opinion, also found that a vast majority opposed the Islamic State militant group in Iraq and Syria, which Israeli leaders have claimed maintains support in Gaza.

More than 90 percent of Gazans surveyed thought that resistance was either "well prepared" or "somewhat prepared" for the Israeli assault, and more than 93 percent opposed the disarmament of Palestinian militant groups, which Israel has said is a condition of any long-term truce.

Israeli spy drone downed near Iran’s Natanz nuclear plant – Revolutionary Guards

Iran has shot down an Israeli spy drone trying to penetrate the "nuclear off-limits area" of the Natanz nuclear site, the Revolutionary Guards said on their website.

"The downed aircraft was of the stealth, radar-evasive type and it intended to penetrate the off-limit nuclear area in Natanz... but was targeted by a ground-to-air missile before it managed to enter the area," Reuters quotes the statement by the Revolutionary Guards.

Iran's forces fired a missile at the drone as it neared its uranium enrichment facility in Natanz, more than 300 kilometers south of Tehran.

The statement did not say when the drone was downed, nor did it elaborate on how the Guards knew the drone was from Israel.

Parkinson caused by the antipsychotic drugs has been recognized since the early 1950s.

The drugs have in common an ability to block dopamine receptors in the brain. In effect, they cause Parkinson symptoms by making the receptors unavailable to the brain's own dopamine.

USA created Ebola virus as biological weapon?

It turns out that there is a vaccine against Ebola. Pentagon scientists were developing it for 30 years, and all the rights for the drug belong to the government of the United States. Two infected US medics received injections of the vaccine and they started recovering from the disease immediately.

Why has this been made public only now? Why is it the USA that holds all the rights for the use of the vaccine? There can be two most obvious answers found to these questions.

As one can see, Ebola is a perfect biological weapon: it spreads quickly and gives nearly 100 percent mortality. Those having the life-saving vaccine can dictate any conditions to others.

The second answer is a purely commercial interest. It is enough to arrange panic with the help of the media, as it was the case with several epidemics before, such as avian flu. Afterwards, it will be possible to sell the life-saving medicine at any price.

Earlier this month, Senator John McCain indicated that it was time for the United States to consider selling lethal weapons to Vietnam after a 30-year embargo.

Providing Vietnam with coast guard and maritime systems as a first step - and eventually radar, fighter aircraft and spare parts for leftover American military equipment - would bolster Hanoi’s strategic capabilities vis-a-vis China and give substance to the "comprehensive partnership" announced last year between Hanoi and Washington.

“The Right To Exist” – States or People?

It is a curious phrase this “right to exist”. Israel wants the world to accept its “right to exist” as a state, but it denies the indigenous Palestinians their right to exist as a people in their own land. International relations only acknowledges the rights of people, not states. [1] States exist because of the formal recognition afforded them by other states, and now that Israel is recognised as a state, it in fact exists. It makes no sense to demand that a political party recognise Israel’s “right to exist”, much less punish 4 million Palestinians because a majority voted the Hamas Party into government. Yet, these are the very words that are holding the Palestinians, particularly those in Gaza, to an impossible ransom.

“The Russian Aggression Prevention Act” (RAPA): A Direct Path to Nuclear War with Russia

The Russian Aggression Prevention Act”, introduced to Congress by U.S. Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), will set the US on a path towards direct military conflict with Russia in Ukraine.

Any US-Russian war is likely to quickly escalate into a nuclear war, since neither the US nor Russia would be willing to admit defeat, both have many thousands of nuclear weapons ready for instant use, and both rely upon Counterforce military doctrine that tasks their military, in the event of war, to preemptively destroy the nuclear forces of the enemy.

Only a ten minute warning: Netanyahu warns Gaza civilians after Israel destroys apartment tower

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Palestinian civilians on Sunday to leave immediately any site where militants are operating, one day after Israel took the Gaza war to a new level by flattening a 13-storey apartment tower.

Israeli aircraft fired a non-explosive rocket at the building as a signal to residents to get out before attacking it on Saturday. Seventeen people were wounded in the strike on the structure, which Israel said had housed a Hamas command centre.

"I call on the inhabitants of Gaza to evacuate immediately from every site from which Hamas is carrying out terrorist activity. Every one of these places is a target for us," Netanyahu said in public remarks at a cabinet meeting.

true With no end in sight to fighting in its seventh week, Netanyahu's tough talk seemed to indicate a move towards bolder strikes against Hamas targets in densely populated neighborhoods, even at the risk of raising more international alarm

Cowards in the Pulpit Finally Tell on Themselves

If you are wondering why there are not more pastors and preachers in America like the Black Robed Regiment, then you need look no further to a two-year study conducted by George Barna. Barna gave the results of the study earlier this month and revealed that while a majority of them claim they believe the Bible provides specific answers to the issues America faces, they will not speak out on those issues from the pulpit.

Looming Mining ‘Tsunami’ Set to Take Africa by Storm

Rapidly growing countries such as Russia, India, Brazil and China, as well as established, industrialized including Canada and Australia, have plowed billions into mining developments in Africa in recent years. In 2009 China alone invested more than $100 billion each year in mineral extraction, a four-fold increase since the turn of the century. According to data from Global Forest Watch, between 2001 and 2013 alone the DRC lost more than 5.8 million hectares of forest – a swath of land larger than the Netherlands.

The study’s authors point out the enormous opportunity afforded by this influx of cash. Mines can provide much-needed employment, and accompanying infrastructure development in the form of roads and rail lines could help connect farmers to markets, incentivizing increased agricultural yields and encouraging higher incomes through participation in national and regional economies.

UK Farmers in debt and despair as dairy market collapses

British dairy farmers are threatening to take matters into their own hands as fears grow that volatile markets for their milk, butter and cheese products could jeopardise their livelihoods. Some larger dairy farmers are said to have incurred debts of more than £1m since milk prices first began to plummet in May.

Caught between a UK supermarket price war and a ban by Russia on EU produce, including dairy, which many fear could lead to a glut in Europe, dairy farmers are being asked to take action to help save their industry.

In an attempt to wrest control of the falling market, Farmers for Action, who staged the 2012 SOS Dairy demonstrations, has asked its members to support direct action to be taken by the end of this week. Within 24 hours of consulting its membership, the group received more than 500 "yes" votes, with farmers from around the country expressing grave concerns over the future of UK farming.

Russia's Aeroflot defies sanctions to create new low-cost airline Dobrolyot

Russian flag carrier Aeroflot will create a new low-cost unit after Western sanctions grounded its first effort to enter the market, the airline's chief executive said on Sunday.

"We will after all register a new airline," Aeroflot chief executive Vitaly Savelyev was quoted as saying by Russian news agencies.

He said the company's low-cost carrier, Dobrolyot, had worked well during the six weeks it was allowed to operate.

Dobrolyot was forced to shut down because it flew to Russian-annexed Crimea and was therefore hit by EU sanctions imposed over the Kremlin's alleged support for pro-Russian rebels in Ukraine, including the cancellation of the leasing contracts for its Boeing aircraft

AFP EXCLUSIVE: U.S.-Israeli Plot to Kidnap Edward Snowden Foiled

A plot by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and Israel’s Mossad to kidnap National Security Agency (NSA) whistleblower Edward Snowden was foiled by agents of Russia’s intelligence agency, the Federal Security Service (FSB).

The plan was to abduct Snowden in Moscow where he was hiding out and spirit him across the Russian border to Turkey, a North Atlantic Treaty Organization member, where a plane would be waiting to transport him for interrogation to Diego Garcia, the Indian Ocean military base where terrorism suspects have been held secretly in recent years.

According to an FSB officer, who agreed to speak to this writer off the record to protect his identity, the plot unraveled at the start of October 2013, two months after Snowden had been granted a temporary Russian asylum permit. On August 7, Snowden’s permit was extended for another three years.

Our Return to Feudalism

In colonial America, feudalism began as an extension of the English manorial system. In addition to the Puritans and the Protestants, who came from England to the New World seeking religious freedom, some early colonists came to expand their estates by establishing feudal domains. While the Puritans and the Protestants established colonies in New England, the Anglicans established the proprietary colonies of Maryland, the Carolinas, and Delaware, and the Dutch brought similar systems to New Amsterdam (later New York) and New Jersey. Similar systems came to the Americas in the seigneurial system of New France (Canada) and the encomienda system of the Spanish colonies of Latin America

Speed cameras issued thousands of bogus tickets in Long Island

Nassau County of New York is forgiving thousands of speeding tickets issued this summer from malfunctioning speed cameras, totaling about $2.4 million in fines.

The Long Island county executive, Edward Mangano, said cameras from Arizona-based American Traffic Solutions near six schools were unreliable and issued tickets even when school was not in session. Traffic speeds are reduced dramatically during school hours.

"I don't have a high confidence level that the cameras were operating at statutory levels," Mangano told Newsday Friday. "So we are declaring amnesty with all tickets issued this summer."

People who have already paid the $80 ticket fine will receive a refund and all 30,000-plus tickets will be dismissed, Mangano said.

The development highlights that automated traffic ticketing isn't always up to speed.
