Ukraine Electricity Emergency Courtesy of Guess Who?

The rogues in Kiev, by refusing any serious diplomatic resolution of the conflict for the past nine months, but rather opting to speak with bombs and terror, have now created for its citizens a desperate situation. The country now has dramatic power outages and heating crises as severe winter sets in.

Nation Reacts as Chicago Police’s Secret Prison Confirms Fears Over NDAA

The most important part about this revelation may be the likelihood of there being several more locations like this all across America where police can secretly detain, disappear, and kill people illegally or legally under the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).

This could be the first instance of the NDAA being put to use; the first time authorities exercise their power to detain or kill anyone they want legally. Or maybe we just haven’t heard about this program because it’s been a closely guarded secret for a long time. There is a possibility that this secret detention center’s practices predate the indefinite detention provisions of the NDAA, which was signed into law on New Years Day in 2012. This would mean the program was operating entirely outside of what is considered to be the law. Not exactly surprising.

US Aggression Against Venezuela

Recently, several different spokespersons for the Obama administration have firmly claimed the United States government is not intervening in Venezuelan affairs. Department of State spokeswoman Jen Psaki went so far as to declare, “The allegations made by the Venezuelan government that the United States is involved in coup plotting and destabilization are baseless and false.” Psaki then reiterated a bizarrely erroneous statement she had made during a daily press briefing just a day before: “The United States does not support political transitions by non-constitutional means”.

Anyone with minimal knowlege of Latin America and world history knows Psaki’s claim is false, and calls into question the veracity of any of her prior statements.

Now Bill O'Reilly is challenged over claims he 'saw nuns being executed in El Salvador'

Bill O'Reilly is facing new claims that he fabricated a story about witnessing the execution of four nuns in El Salvador during the country's civil war.

The allegations came days after liberal watchdog, Media Matters for America, questioned O'Reilly's report that in 1977 he witnessed the suicide of a friend of JFK shooter Lee Harvey Oswald, and Mother Jones disputed his coverage of the Falklands War.

O'Reilly claimed he has 'seen guys gun down nuns in El Salvador' and 'was in El Salvador and I saw nuns get shot in the back of the head' while working at CBS, according to Media Matters.

The Fox News man appeared to be referencing a well-known case of four nuns executed by the Salvadoran national guard in December 1980.

Experts in the El Salvadoran conflict have said that following the tragedy, there were no church people killed in the country for more than eight years.

US Air Force C17 transport caught smuggling arms and drugs into Argentina

Argentina’s foreign ministry has issued a press release stating that it will be making a formal protest over undeclared weapons and drugs brought into the nation at Ezeiza last Thursday.

A manifest provided by the US did not list war materiel and drugs which were seized by Argentine authorities.

Among the confiscated materiel were communications interception equipment, encrypted communications equipment, sophisticated GPS devices, high power rifles, a machine gun and narcotics as well as a full trunk of expired pharmaceuticals including stimulants. All boxes had the stamp of the 7th Army Airborne Brigade based in North Carolina.

The Argentine government estimates the value of the goods and the C17 transport expenses to exceed $2 million.

John Kerry says Israel’s Netanyahu Lied About Iran nuclear weapons

US Secretary of State John Kerry has questioned the judgement of Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu over his stance on Iran’s nuclear programme.

Mr Netanyahu has criticised the US and others for “giving up” on trying to stop Iran obtaining nuclear weapons.

The Israeli PM “may not be correct”, Mr Kerry said after attending the latest Iran nuclear talks in Geneva.

Mexican gangs armed by Eric Holder now use drones to smuggle drugs

Mexico-based drug cartels are using technology to smuggle drugs into the United States, including small drones like one that crashed in a city located along the southwest border in California, authorities said.

As reported by Fox News and other media, police in the Mexican border city of Tijuana, just south of San Diego, crash-landed in the parking lot of a supermarket because it was overloaded with methamphetamine.

Interestingly enough, yesterday the BBC published a poll that measured British Muslims’ attitude towards Britain. Unlike the majority of Jews who expressed their will to leave Europe, 95% of the Muslims here are “loyal to Britain.”

QUEBEC: Education minister who backed high school strip searches quits politics and returns to medicine

QUEBEC CITY, CANADA (Toronto Globe and Mail): “I took a personal decision to return to practising medicine,” Bolduc told reporters without taking any questions. “It’s a decision that was my own and given all that’s going on … I took the decision to return to practising medicine, which I love.”

Bolduc has been seen as a source of embarrassment for the governing Liberals in recent days after comments he made about strip searches at schools.

Last week, Bolduc said strip searches were permitted in Quebec high schools as long as they were conducted in a manner that was “very respectful” to the student. The issue surfaced after a 15-year-old girl told Le Journal de Québec she felt violated after being strip-searched because the school suspected her of selling drugs.

US-Israel row deepens as Kerry questions Netanyahu

The row between the White House and Israeli prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu has intensified with US officials saying his outspoken condemnation of efforts to secure an Iranian nuclear deal had injected destructive partisanship into US-Israeli relations.

In an escalation of hostile exchanges between the allies six days before Mr Netanyahu gives a speech to Congress on the threat from Iran, the Israeli leader accused world powers of abandoning a pledge to prevent Tehran from getting a nuclear bomb.

Benjamin Netanyahu’s blinkered view of American politics

When I first wrote about Benjamin Netanyahu’s address to a joint session of Congress opposing a nuclear deal with Iran, I was mostly focusing on the domestic politics of President Obama’s trolling and the GOP’s counter-trolling.

In the five weeks since, the effect of the speech on the Israeli-American relationship has come into stark relief, and the effect could best be described as “toxic.”

Which 2016 GOP candidate is most gung-ho for war?

A battle to watch: Which 2016 GOP candidate is most gung-ho for war?
Republican voters are hearing the war drums, and are beginning to nod their heads in time to the rhythm. That’s the conclusion one can come to reading this new poll http://www.people-press.org/2015/02/24/growing-support-for-campaign-ag... from the Pew Research Center, which notes, among other things, an increasing eagerness among Republican voters to use ground troops in Iraq and Syria.

We are now likely to enter a cycle in which more hawkish voters lead the GOP candidates to become more hawkish in order to appeal to them, which will in turn encourage the voters to become even more hawkish because they’ll be taking their cues from the things they hear from their party leaders, and around the cycle will go.

COMER UPDATE - Federal Court of Appeal Decision — January 26, 2015

Since the Federal Court of Appeal fully upheld the decision of Justice Russell dated April 24, 2014, Justice Russell’s decision stands. I refer everyone to my summary of that decision on COMER’s website.

What that means is that we are entitled to proceed with our action, subject to me drafting and filing an amended Statement of Claim with the Federal Court, which will be done shortly.

In short, and in summary, the decision of the Federal Court of Appeal is a victory for COMER to proceed. (While the government can seek leave of the Federal Court of Appeal’s decision to the Supreme Court of Canada, to date no such indication has been conveyed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For those just finding out about COMER (which Canada has been trying to block and ban from both corporate and independent media) , the Bank of Canada is supposed to provide interest-free loans to the Canadian governments for infrastructure development. But starting in the 1970s, the Canadian government started getting their loans from privately owned banks, and forcing Canadian taxpayers to pay the interest! The COMER lawsuit seeks to force the Canadian government to avail itself of the interest-free loans mandated by the charter for the Bank of Canada, and so far the courts have agreed that COMER is correct.

The Canadian government has banned this subject from the Canadian corporate media, and emails from Canada report that links to stories about COMER are blocked inside Canada as well. This is to keep the Canadian people from finding out about this scandal as they would likely ask why the Canadian government would do such a thing, and so far the only answer seems to be, "We decided to loot the taxpayers and give it to the private banks because the private bankers write really generous campaign donation checks every election!"

Needless to say, this would not sit very well with the already over-taxed Canadian people!

Call GM food something else to ease public fears, say MPs: Report says label is 'lightning rod' for fears of designer crops

The term ‘GM food’ should be abandoned, say politicians who are calling for an extraordinary rebranding exercise.

MPs on the science and technology select committee has demanded a ‘reframing of the public conversation’ about genetically modified food.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In other words, they are going to "solve" the problem of concern over GMO food by not telling you that you are eating GMO food, then blame the resulting deaths on shaken baby syndrome or other such nonsense, while making a fortune selling drugs and treatments for the medical conditions GMO foods produce!

Tsarnaev friend could be freed under Supreme Court ruling

A college friend of accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev may move to have his obstruction of justice conviction overturned, his lawyer said, after the US Supreme Court on Wednesday issued a ruling that redefined the law that prosecutors used to charge him.
***
Federal prosecutors in Boston used that law to charge two of Tsarnaev’s friends, who were accused of removing Tsarnaev’s backpack containing fireworks from his dorm room and throwing it in a dumpster. Tazhayakov was convicted in July 2014 and Dias Kadyrbayev pleaded guilty a month later under an agreement that he could serve seven years in prison.

(*The prosecutors were trying to pull a 'fast one' .)

Netanyahu goes nuclear… now wait for the fallout

The contents of a secret report by Israel’s Mossad spy agency on Iran’s nuclear programme leaked to the media this week are shocking and predictable in equal measure.

Shocking because the report reveals that the Israeli prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, has spent years trying to convince the international community and Israelis that Tehran is racing towards building a nuclear bomb, when evidence presented by his own spies suggests the opposite.

The real reason Diana tapes were shelved: Director claims BBC axed 'dynamite' footage amid fears of upsetting monarchy - despite spending £500,000 on programme

The BBC allegedly wasted £500,000 on a documentary featuring 'dynamite' interviews with Princess Diana - but later shelved it because it did not want to upset the monarchy, it has been claimed.

According to the director behind a controversial documentary about the Princess of Wales, the BBC went on to give a misleading account of why the programme was not broadcast.

The Corporation said at the time that Diana: Her Story, Her Words, due to be broadcast on the tenth anniversary of her death, did not sufficiently add to the story of Diana's life.

But, in another controversial documentary being aired tonight, it is claimed the BBC stopped its broadcast amid fears it would upset the Royal Family close to Prince's Charles 60th birthday.

Marathon bombing suspect: Not enough minorities in jury pool

Lawyers for the Boston Marathon bombing suspect have asked a judge to dismiss the indictment against their client, saying there aren't enough minorities and younger people in the jury pool.

Lawyers filed a motion Thursday saying the selection process violated Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's (joh-HAHR' tsahr-NEYE'-ehvz) constitutional right to have a jury that represents a "fair cross section of the community."

They say blacks, people under 30 and Boston residents were underrepresented in the group of potential jurors questioned by the judge.

The prospective jurors were chosen from a population of about 5 million in eastern Massachusetts.

European court rules environmental groups can't legally oppose EU institutions; only corporations get a say

In a recent decision, the European Court of Justice ruled that environmental non-governmental organizations and other NGOs possess no right to file actions with the court, meaning they cannot legally oppose any European Union institution -- though profiteering global corporations have had, and will continue to have, access to court.

As noted in a press release from the Pesticide Action Network (PAN), the ruling has serious implications in that groups opposed to GMO crops, for example, now appear to have been shut out of the judicial process.

How could Germany, in a span of 80 years (1918-2000s), lose a World War, get back in shape enough to start another one (in 20 years only), lose it again and then become one of the wealthiest countries?

As an American who has lived in Germany for the last 30 years, the Germans have some traits that tend to make them successful economically. 1. They spend a lot of time and energy early-on in an enterprise to get well organized so that later they can reap the benefits of efficiency. You could call this concentrating on long-term goals rather than just on the short term. Many German companies are still able to compete globally even though Germany is a high-wage place, simply because they are so efficient.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

An idea apparently lost on American businessmen who, isolated from the actual process of their companies by the MBAs, are unable to tell if their companies are efficient or not.

Parubiy also visited with the Pentagon. Weapons are needed by his Government because his Government is engaged in a civil war against the residents in the area of Ukraine that had voted 90% for the former Ukrainian President, Viktor Yanukovych, whom Parubiy himself (when he was called “the Mayor of Maidan”) led to overthrow in a violent February 2014 coup.

But Israel engages in the kinds of jaw-dropping lies that characterize despotic and totalitarian regimes. It does not deform the truth; it inverts it.

Israel's Worst-Kept Secret

Israel has a substantial arsenal of nuclear weapons.

Former CIA Director Robert Gates said so during his 2006 Senate confirmation hearings for secretary of defense, when he noted—while serving as a university president—that Iran is surrounded by “powers with nuclear weapons,” including “the Israelis to the west.” Former President Jimmy Carter said so in 2008 and again this year, in interviews and speeches in which he pegged the number of Israel’s nuclear warheads at 150 to around 300.

But due to a quirk of federal secrecy rules, such remarks generally cannot be made even now by those who work for the U.S. government and hold active security clearances. In fact, U.S. officials, even those on Capitol Hill, are routinely admonished not to mention the existence of an Israeli nuclear arsenal and occasionally punished when they do so.

Jerusalem (AFP) - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Wednesday he respects President Barack Obama but stressed he has no choice but to travel to America to lobby against a nuclear deal with Iran.

100 Reasons Why The Federal Reserve Should Be Shut Down

Janet Yellen is very alarmed that some members of Congress want to conduct a comprehensive audit of the Federal Reserve for the first time since it was created. If the Fed is doing everything correctly, why should Yellen be alarmed? What does she have to hide? During testimony before Congress on Tuesday, she made “central bank independence” sound like it was the holy grail. Even though every other government function is debated politically in this country, Yellen insists that what the Federal Reserve does is “too important” to be influenced by the American people. Does any other government agency ever dare to make that claim? But of course the Federal Reserve is not a government agency. It is a private banking cartel that has far more power over our money and our economy than anyone else does. And later on in this article I am going to share with you dozens of reasons why Congress should shut it down.

Now, when viewed by a drone camera, what an operator sees on his screen is not an anonymous dot on the landscape, but an innocent child victim’s face.

Bad news for warmists: Sun has entered 'weakest solar cycle in a century'

The conceit that human production of carbon dioxide is capable of driving the earth’s climate is running smack into the sun. CO2 accounts for a mere 0.039% of the atmosphere, while the sun accounts for 99.86% of all of the mass in our entire solar system. And Ol’ Sol is not taking the insult lightly. Vencore Weather reports:

For the past 5 days, solar activity has been very low and one measure of solar activity – its X-ray output – has basically flatlined in recent days (plot below courtesy NOAA/Space Weather Prediction Center). Not since cycle 14 peaked in February 1906 has there been a solar cycle with fewer sunspots.

“This attack very likely has happened. We can correlate what is described in the document allegedly coming from the NSA or GCHQ with events we have observed. This attack was very innovative, it has never been seen before. So it was likely not done by a hacker or mafia as is usual,” said Gemalto’s boss Olivier Piou.
