Monsanto, GMOs, and the Future of Open Source Synthetic Biology

If the controversy over genetically modified organisms (GMOs) tells us something indisputable, it is this: GMO food products from corporations like Monsanto are suspected to endanger health. On the other hand, an individual’s right to genetically modify and even synthesize entire organisms as part of his dietary or medical regimen could someday be a human right.

The suspicion that agri-giant companies do harm by designing crops is legitimate, even if evidence of harmful GMOs is scant to absent. Based on their own priorities and actions, we should have no doubt that self-interested corporations disregard the rights and wellbeing of local producers and consumers. This makes agri-giants producing GMOs harmful and untrustworthy, regardless of whether individual GMO products are actually harmful.

Hollywood and the Obama Myth

“And believe it or not, entertainment is part of our American diplomacy. It’s part of what makes us exceptional, part of what makes us such a world power.” - US President Barack Obama at the DreamWorks Animation facility, November 2013.

As sensational as that pronouncement was, at least it shed light on how the people of the United States have been sucked into accepting another war in Iraq, and possibly one in Syria, too.

48 suspicious banking deaths

With the global financial system heading towards a major crash in the near future are these people buckling under the pressure of what they see coming or are they being silenced because of what they know?

We can only assume it’s a little of both.

Our advice is if JP Morgan offers you a job: politley decline. The list of top level bankers dying under suspicious circumstances has been growing rapidly in recent months.

Whether these are genuine deaths or something more sinister one thing is for certain, banking is becoming one of the most dangerous industries to be involved in right now with an extremely high death per employee ratio.

Sears has lost nearly $1 billion so far this year and it’s just getting started

Sears is an icon of American retail. It’s been around since 1893 and served as a staple for many consumers for much of that time. But in recent years, under the stewardship of CEO Eddie Lampert, it’s turned into a money pit. Today, it announced a quarterly loss of more than $500 million. Last quarter, it lost more than $400 million. And the long-running decline is accelerating.

Lampert, in a statement, called the company’s results “unacceptable.” Executives on a conference call with investors and analysts said lagging consumer electronics sales and promotions were to blame.

When ‘Anti-Government’ Violence Erupts, Who Is Really At Fault?

Brandon Smith
Activist Post

This past week, I have been examining a recently leaked document from the Department Of Homeland Security entitled “Domestic Violent Extremists Pose A Threat To Government Officials And Law Enforcement.” (Yes; the title leaves nothing to the imagination.)

Generally, such documents are not classified. But it is internally accepted within establishment agencies that they should not be shared with the public...

“Exodus” Now Hurling Real 5,000 Pound Bombs

Ponder this for a moment: 5,000 pound GBU 28 bunker-buster bombs were dropped on a single house in Gaza. Israel obviously can pinpoint a target when it wishes to do so. It makes many claims that it “did not intend” to strike a United Nations school or a hospital.

That is not true. Schools and hospitals are not struck by mistake. These are large buildings and Israel’s ability to pinpoint targets are demonstrable.

Israel still retains absolute mind control over the western world, thanks to the selling of an Israel narrative which was boosted high into the literary lights and onto movie screens with the fictional Israeli narrative written by Leon Uris in 1954.

NSA Whistle-Blower: Obama’s Authority To Label ‘Terrorists’ Is The Same Rule The Nazis Issued In 1933

Former National Security Agency crypto-mathematician Bill Binney was blowing the whistle on domestic spying long before Edward Snowden became a household name, and has gone on record describing the agency’s growing powers as increasingly “totalitarian.” Now the 36-year agency veteran is explaining the reason for its expansion — “power, control and money.”

“Look at the NDAA [National Defense Authorization Act] Section 1021, that gave President Obama the ability to define someone as a terrorist threat and have the military incarcerate them indefinitely without due process,” Binney said in a recent interview with DW while expanding on his testimony about NSA in Germany earlier this year.

“That’s the same as the special order 48 issued in 1933 by the Nazis [the so-called Reichstag Fire Decree]. Read that — it says exactly the same thing.”

Education Ministry plans teaching children to be 'Jewish fighters’

Some history teachers balked this week at a proposed Education Ministry lesson plan that encourages students to be “Jewish fighters” like the biblical Joshua.

The lesson, which was recently sent to history teachers across the country, quotes Simcha Goldin’s entire eulogy for his son Hadar, an Israeli soldier killed during the fighting in Gaza earlier this month. Describing his son as “a Jewish fighter” like Joshua, Simcha Goldin said: “Do as he did. Take the Torah with you day and night and be Jewish fighters.”

Some teachers objected to bringing religion into the picture.

“Must we now strengthen the students’ desire to be ‘Jewish fighters’?” asked a history teacher at a Jerusalem school. “Must the Bible and divine imperatives be our guides? This is no longer a private matter of a father mourning his son, but a lesson plan from the Education Ministry.”

Ridiculous: You Won’t Believe What The Government Is Doing To Woman Responsible For VA Scandal

"Almost 113 days and counting — that’s how long the former head of the Phoenix Veterans Administration has been on paid leave. According to the watchdog group Concerned Veterans for America, Sharon Helman — the “poster girl” for lack of accountability in the VA — continues to collect her federal paycheck, even though she’s doing nothing for the agency. Her annual salary: $170,000.
You may recall that, when the VA scandal broke, Helman came under withering criticism, accused of gross mismanagement that may have resulted in the deaths of as many as 40 veterans. She was removed from her post, but even now continues to collect a paycheck while the VA decides what to do about her situation."

Why such hype about the Michael Brown killing?

I dislike ultra-racism, hyper-ethnic chauvinism and plastic patriotism as much as the next person.

Introspection is a noble value; criticizing one’s own people when they do wrong is a righteous thing in the same way that parents who admonish their children when they misbehave are trying to help, not hurt, their children.

Defending one’s own simply by virtue of their race, culture, nationality or religion is a negative attribute, and leads to extreme narcissism, nepotism and other nasty expressions.

But I also believe in honest and fair treatment, and that is scarcely to be found on the issues of race, racism and ethnocentrism.

FLASHBACK - Fighting Al Qaeda by Supporting Al Qaeda in Syria: The Obama Administration is a “State Sponsor of Terrorism”

A major transition in US counter-terrorism doctrine is unfolding.

While Barack Obama, following in the footsteps of George W. Bush, remains firmly committed to waging a “Global War on Terrorism” (GWOT), his administration is now openly supporting selected rebel units in Syria which are part of the Al Qaeda network.

Known and documented, Al Qaeda is a creation of the CIA, which has covertly supported the “Islamic Terror Network” since the heyday of the Soviet Afghan war.

While Al Qaeda is a US sponsored “intelligence asset”, a “New Normal” has been established.

An Al Qaeda affiliated organization, namely Syria’s Al Nusrah, is being supported “overtly” by the US President, rather than “covertly” by the CIA.

NATO Using Foley and ISIS As A Pretext For Bombing Syria - Ultimate Target Is Russia

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post

The Islamic State and the war in Syria is back on the front pages of the news once again on the heels of the alleged killing of James Mark Foley, an American journalist working in Syria. The outrage surrounding the alleged beheading of Foley, while justifiable if it is real, is already being used for propaganda purposes, namely in order to build up American support for an aerial bombing campaign against the Syrian government.

With this in mind, it is important to examine the facts surrounding the alleged execution of James Foley and the ways in which this incident is being used to justify more American military intervention in the Middle East and Syria specifically...

Police, lawyer release statements on student's alleged dinosaur killing

A Summerville High School student who says he was arrested and suspended after writing about killing a dinosaur using a gun in a class assignment has hired a lawyer.

Attorney David Aylor, who is representing 16-year-old Alex Stone, said his client's arrest over a creative writing assignment on Tuesday was "completely absurd," and is seeking to appeal the suspension and "proceed with the legal issues of [Stone's] arrest."

“This is a perfect example of ‘political correctness' that has exceeded the boundaries of common sense," Aylor said in a statement released on Thursday."Students were asked to write about themselves and a creative Facebook status update – just days into the new school year – and my client was arrested and suspended after a school assignment."

UN: death toll from Syrian civil war tops 191,000

The death toll from three years of Syria's civil war has risen to more than 191,000 people, the United Nations reported Friday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Except that this is not a civil war but one in an endless series of covert US overthrows, such as the one started in Kiev last January that is still thrashing about. Since the end of WW2, the US Government has tried to covertly overthrow the governments of some 50 countries succeeding about half the time. Successes include Iran in 1953 and Chile in 1973. Failures include Iran in 2009 and arguably, Ukraine in 2014.

The Libertarian Moment in Ferguson

Just two weeks ago, The New York Times Magazine had the temerity to ask, “Has the Libertarian Moment Finally Arrived?” Among the evidence that America is becoming more socially tolerant, fiscally responsible, and interested in shaking things up: rapid increases in the acceptance of gay marriage, pot legalization, and other forms of self-expression; wariness toward our bipartisan interventionist foreign policy; widespread outrage at governmental invasions of privacy; continued antipathy toward Obamacare and declining approval ratings of Congress; and a general lack of belief that spending more money is going to fix the country anytime soon.

Turning America Into a War Zone, Where ‘We the People’ Are the Enemy

Life in the American police state is an endless series of don’ts delivered at the end of a loaded gun: don’t talk back to police officers, don’t even think about defending yourself against a SWAT team raid (of which there are 80,000 every year), don’t run when a cop is nearby lest you be mistaken for a fleeing criminal, don’t carry a cane lest it be mistaken for a gun, don’t expect privacy in public, don’t let your kids walk to the playground alone, don’t engage in nonviolent protest near where a government official might pass, don’t try to grow vegetables in your front yard, don’t play music for tips in a metro station, don’t feed whales, and on and on.

For those who resist, who dare to act independently, think for themselves, march to the beat of a different drummer, the consequences are invariably a one-way trip to the local jail or death.

Ukraine is in flames, the Mideast is troubled, and there are problems in Afghanistan. Throughout his term in power – not a single peacekeeping operation; we see only death, aggression and refugees. The Peace Prize should be recalled immediately to avoid disgracing of the award!” Zhirinovsky stated.

Billionaire Branson, fellow business leaders offer support to end violence in Ukraine

Billionaire Richard Branson and fellow business tycoons have offered “whatever support we can” to end the conflict in Ukraine and prevent the return of the “cold war misery of the past.”

Branson posted an open letter on the Virgin website appealing for a peaceful solution to the crisis in the Ukraine.

He was joined by fellow business leaders including, former eBay president Jeff Skoll, Unilever CEO Paul Polman, Ukrainian tycoon Victor Pinchuk, and Russian restaurateur Arkady Novikov in a plea to governments to find a peaceful end to the crisis.

“Already, citizens and economies on either side are impacted. As the world has become more and more interconnected, we have an opportunity to advance peaceful solutions that will bring about a better future for all,” said the letter.

US general says raiding Syria is key to halting ISIS

"This is an organization that has an apocalyptic end-of-days strategic vision that will eventually have to be defeated," said the chairman, General Martin E Dempsey, in his most expansive public remarks on the crisis since American airstrikes began in Iraq. "Can they be defeated without addressing that part of the organization that resides in Syria? The answer is no."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Okay, Marty, if you really feel that way, here's your rifle! Here's your parachute. Watch your head climbing into that transport plane, and we will call Assad and tell him you are on your way to kick his gluteus maximus all by yourself.

But We The People remember how the US Government has been trying to take over Syria using hired mercenaries for the last three years. We The People remember how you lied about Assad gassing his own people to trick us into war, which didn't work because we still remember how you lied about Saddam's nuclear weapons and stolen incubators to trick us into war with Iraq, and we remember how you lied about torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin to trick us into war with Vietnam, and how you lied to us about the Lusitania not carrying weapons to trick us into WW1, and how you lied about a Spanish mine in Havana harbor sinking the USS Maine to trick us into war with Spain ... need I go on?

So you will forgive us if we sit this next war for conquest and enrichment out and keep our children safe at home. But feel free to attack Assad all by yourself, and we will watch safely from home, as you in the government have always done when it was our children being killed and crippled in wars ultimately fought for the bankers!

Central Banking at Jackson Hole: Simplistic Dialectic, Significant Ramifications

Like Reuters, Bloomberg is a creature of the establishment and you can read Bloomberg editorials (especially) to garner an inkling about how we ought to be perceiving one of the most important dominant social themes of all: Central banking and the endlessly discussed deployment of its monetary arsenal.

In this case, as before – and as we have maintained – central bankers meeting this weekend at Jackson Hole will palaver earnestly but come up with reasons why monetary policy and interest rates should remain fairly "unchanged."

Entitled ideology supporting ‘incineration’ of Gaza resonates with Nazi ideology — Siegman

An astonishing piece by Henry Siegman, at the Norwegian Peacebuilding Resource Center, goes further than this Jewish leader, who escaped the Holocaust himself, has gone before. Siegman categorically defends the right of resistance for a subject people exposed to the violence of occupiers in occupied lands and says Palestinians may exercise the same right of resistance exercised by Jewish people in the 1940s. He uses the words “Dresden” and “incineration” to describe the destruction of Gaza, and then explicitly likens Netanyahu’s ideology of Jewish exceptionalism to the ideology of the Nazis.

TSA Sued Over Cover-Up Of Sexual Misconduct

Airport security officers are getting a little too frisky with some passengers, and watchdog agencies want to make sure that the government cracks down on this abuse.

The Judicial Watch group in Washington, D.C. announced Thursday that it filed a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the United States Department of Homeland Security seeking “incident reports” of sexual assault or misconduct perpetrated by airport Transportation Security Officials at airports in Washington D.C, Chicago, Denver and Miami, among others.

The lawsuit, known as Judicial Watch v. U.S. State Department, was filed on July 11, 2014, but was just released to the pubic Thursday. The report seeks incidents of sexual misconduct perpetrated during 2013 by the respective airport TSAs under investigation.

DHS saw no option but to free 169 illegals convicted of murder

Of the 169 immigrants with homicide-related convictions released in fiscal year 2013, all but 15 were required to be let go because of specific court orders or because the immigrants had been held for too long under the rules established by a sweeping 2001 Supreme Court case, the Homeland Security Department said in an Aug. 15 letter to Sen. Chuck Grassley, Iowa Republican.

A good example is recombinant bovine growth hormone (rBGH), a genetically engineered milk stimulator invented by Monsanto but soon embraced by Big Ag for its profit potential—getting more milk out of each cow.

"They're beyond just a terrorist group. They marry ideology, a sophistication of strategic and tactical military prowess. They are tremendously well-funded. Oh, this is beyond anything that we've seen. So we must prepare for everything," he added.

Things cannot stay the same after Israeli genocide in Gaza

After every bloody episode of violence perpetrated by Israel, media spin doctors are often deployed with one grand mission: to absolve Israel of any responsibility in their acts of carnage.

Not only do these apologists demonize Palestinians, but anyone who dares to take a stand on their behalf. The main staple of this Israeli strategy has been blaming the victim. Such a tactic is nothing new in the way the so-called "Arab-Israeli conflict" has been presented in Western media, whose narrative has been much closer to that of Israeli official and media discourses than that of Palestinians. This continued despite the decades-long military occupation, successive wars, and countless massacres.

New Bill In Congress Would Ban Private Citizens From Owning Body Armor

A new law that has been introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives "would prohibit the sale, transfer or possession of military-level body armor by civilians".

The bill that I am talking about is H.R. 5344 (The Responsible Body Armor Possession Act), and you can view the proposed legislation for yourself right here. The driving force behind this new law is Democrat Mike Honda from California. To Honda, it doesn't matter that large numbers of very responsible Americans have purchased body armor to protect themselves and their families in a society that is rapidly decaying.

A GOVERNMENT THAT LIES

But with regards to the claims about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction, there was no evidence to miss or misinterpret. There could not be, since in hindsight there were no weapons to leave traces of evidence with. The story about weapons of mass destruction was just made up, and fraudulently manufactured "proof" created to support that lie. The mere existence of Tony Blair's dossier, plagiarized from a student thesis, is proof not only that the claims of Iraq WMDs were lies, but were known and conscious lies. Had their been any real proof, it would have been shared immediately between the various war-mongers. There would have been no need for Tony Blair to concoct his discredited Dossier. But, what the public were offered were mislabeled and blurry photos, made up dossiers, and balloon inflators misidentified as mobile biological weapons laboratories (which the British government knew about since they had sold the balloon inflators to Iraq in the first place).

At 21:54 GMT on 9/11/2001 the BBC announced that WTC 7 had collapsed. There was just one problem with this news: WTC 7 did not collapse until 22:20 GMT.

Webmaster's Commentary: 


WEBMASTER NOTE: Right now the corporate media is shoveling ISIS at us as hard as they can, in an obvious propaganda campaign reminiscent of the similar campaign about "Al Qaeda" and "Osama Bin Laden" that preceded 9-11. Given how desperate the US Government is to revive the war agenda, we should be concerned that a new false-flag attack, bigger and bloodier than the World Trade Towers, is being considered.

9/11 Videos:THE CONTROLLED COLLAPSE OF WTC 7

Take a close look at the manner in which WTC 7 collapses straight down. For the building to collapse in this fashion, all of the load bearing supports would have had to fail at exactly the same time.

The claim that the collapse was the result of a fire requires the fire be equally distributed throughout the entire floor of the building, providing equal heat for an equal amount of time, so that all the load bearings members would fail at the exact same moment.

Do you find this plausible?

The Secret Service at Booker Elementary:The Dog That Did Not Bark

Bush defenders try to explain Bush's inaction as his not wanting to upset the children. Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 9-11" suggests Bush's inaction was due to his not being told to leave. But Michael Moore fails to follow that line of reasoning through to its logical conclusion; where were the people whose job it is to get the President to a place of safety in event of attack, the people who would have, SHOULD have, pulled Bush out of there, children and public appearances be damned!

The Secret Service did nothing. The dog did not bark.

If the events of 9-11 were truly a surprise to the United States Government then there is no way the Secret Service could have known there wasn't a hijacked or stolen plane heading towards Booker Elementary School that very second.

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

As we run up to yet another anniversary of the 9-11 false-flag attacks, the government's controlled assets on the web are once again pushing the "no plane at the Pentagon" hoax as hard as they can, to give the corporate media an easy means to discredit those who question the official story while avoiding the really tough questions like, "Why did the BBC announce the collapse of World Trade Center 7 twenty six minutes before it actually happened?" Or, "How did President Bush's Secret Service know he was not a target sitting in that school on Florida?"

The media cannot ask, let alone answer, those questions, so the propagandists gin up this "No plane" theory and plant it online to give the corporate media an easy handle with which to ridicule and dismiss the whole idea of doubting the official story of 9-11.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In the wake of Richard Gage's C-SPAN appearance and the comment made by the New York Times Chief Correspondent David Sanger, "We've not found any evidence so far to suggest that the building collapses were caused by anything other than the two airplanes" I am once again being flooded with emails demanding (under threats in some cases) that I simply MUST post the "evidence" that a passenger jet did not really crash into the Pentagon on 9-11.

9/11: All In One Chunk

9/11 - The Basic Questions

1. Why didn't jets intercept the airliners since they had numerous warnings of terrorist attacks?

2. Why did Ashcroft stop flying commercial airlines, citing an unidentified "threat" in July 2001?

3. Why did FEMA lie about their presence in New York on 9/11?

4. Why didn't the Secret Service hustle Dubya out of the classroom?

5. Why did George H.W. Bush meet bin Laden's brother on 9/11?

6. Why did passengers or crewmembers on three of the flights all use the term boxcutters?

7. Where are the flight recorders?

8. Why were the FISA warrants discontinued?

9. How did Bush see the first plane crash on live camera?

10 Why was security meeting scheduled for 9/11 cancelled by WTC management on 9/10?

The Five Dancing Israelis Arrested On 9-11

The Jewish weekly The Forward reported that the FBI finally concluded that at least two of the detained Israelis were agents working for the Mossad, the Israeli intelligence agency, and that Urban Moving Systems, the ostensible employer of the five Israelis, was a front operation. This was confirmed by two former CIA officers, and they noted that movers' vans are a common intelligence cover. (23). The Israelis were held in custody for 71 days before being quietly released.

Needless to say, Israel's minions are already chasing me around the net, screaming that I am an anti-Semite for doubting Israel's story about the three teens and insisting that Israel would never play dirty tricks to start wars. Here is one well-known example. On 9-11, a van load of Israelis made a spectacle of themselves cheering and clapping as the World Trade Towers collapsed. The video they were shooting remains classified to this very day. Rumor has it that it shows the first impact, proving the Israelis had foreknowledge. The FBI determined that at least two of the Israelis were Mossad agents. NPR put the number at three.

"Evidence linking these Israelis to 9/11 is classified. I cannot tell you about evidence that has been gathered. It's classified information." -- US official quoted in Carl Cameron's Fox News report on the Israeli spy ring and its connections to 9-11.

“I went down to the scene and we set up headquarters at 75 Barkley Street, which was right there with the Police Commissioner, the Fire Commissioner, the Head of Emergency Management, and we were operating out of there when we were told that the World Trade Center was going to collapse. And it did collapse before we could actually get out of the building, so we were trapped in the building for 10, 15 minutes, and finally found an exit and got out, walked north, and took a lot of people with us.”

The 9/11 USAF Stand Down

The US military has spent billions of dollars developing stealth aircraft which are invisible to radar so they can mount surprise attacks on adversaries, but it seems they should have saved their money and bought a fleet of airliners because they appear to be far more effective.

On 9/11 the world's only military superpower was apparently oblivious to the location of rogue airliners in it's airspace for over an hour, and military commanders were left perplexed on how to deal with the situation of hijackers using these planes as flying bombs.

This confusion resulted in fighter jets flying around aimlessly whilst the hierarchy fully assessed what was going on, and this total lack of cohesion ultimately led to the loss of nearly 3000 lives.

All that was required to overcome America's military might on 9/11 were 19 hijackers on 4 airliners.

Does this sound plausible to you?

It's what you're expected to believe.

9/11 Pentagon Eyewitness Accounts

WEBMASTER COMMENT: For some reason the no-planers are really piling onto me over at Facebook.

Maybe we are just dealing with people who got suckered in at the start and now refuse to admit they were made fools of. Or maybe, as we approach the 13th anniversary of 9-11, the government is trying one last desperate push to get a majority of independent media to sign onto the no-plane story so that they can release the actual videos confiscated from around the scene and discredit as many of the critics of the official story as they can in one fell swoop.

But the one question none of the no-planers can answer is WHY the perpetrators of 9-11 would bother trying to play games with that passenger jet. They had to get rid of the plane and its passengers anyway, so there is no reason NOT to crash it into the Pentagon.

Debunking the "The Saudis did 9-11" nonsense!

And finally, here is some common sense that totally undermines the attempt to frame Saudi Arabia for 9-11. If Saudi Arabia really wanted to hurt the United States, they don't need to fly airplanes into skyscrapers to do it. All they have to do is ask for their money back, all at once. The resulting damage to the US financial system would make 9-11 look like a minor inconvenience in comparison.

And it would be perfectly legal for Saudi Arabia to ask for their money back.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am reposting this article because three pro-Israel congressmen are claiming that there is a secret 9-11 document that they are demanding to be made public, one that places the blame for 9-11 on Saudi Arabia. Walter Jones was on the Ron Paul channel today pushing this latest attempt to protect Israel from the consequences of their actions.

This is actually a repeat of the same stunt they tried 2 years ago in which they tease the public with the story of a secret 9-11 document and try to get everyone to demand to see it. The document frames Saudi Arabia for 9-11, to protect Israel.

But as this article lays out, Saudi Arabia didn't have a motive to do 9-11, and if they wanted to hurt the US, they would not need airplanes into skyscrapers to do it.

Eastern Ukraine People’s Republics Between Militias and Oligarchs

The war between the Ukraine government and the republics of Novorossiya [New Russia] is gradually taking on the character of a positional stand-off. The resources of both sides are exhausted, and fighting reserves are at an end. For the people’s republics, defending themselves against the many times larger military forces of the Kiev regime, the well-known principle of “a government needs to win, but for an insurrection it is enough not to lose” operates with full force.

The deteriorating economic situation in Ukraine, the growing demoralisation of supporters of the Kiev regime and the gradual development of a partisan movement on government-controlled territory together herald a new phase in a civil war that will clearly extend far beyond the boundaries of the south-east.

The 35.4 Percent: 109,631,000 On Welfare

109,631,000 Americans lived in households that received benefits from one or more federally funded “means-tested programs” — also known as welfare — as of the fourth quarter of 2012, according to data released Tuesday by the Census Bureau.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That is the 35% who can be counted on not to criticize the government! Which is the whole point of forcing them into dependency in the first place.

This is how economic tyranny works. The government takes all your money, then offers to give you back a tiny fraction of it as long as you do what the government tells you to do!

Russia To Surpass Australia As World No 2 Gold Producer

Yesterday, we reported on China’s intent to become a global gold hub and key player in gold price discovery. Another important player in the gold market at the moment is Russia. Their intentions are more realistic and not as ambitious of those of China. However, Russia sees gold as a valuable monetary asset that will protect the ruble in the continuing currency wars.

This is why, Russia has been one of the largest buyers of gold in recent months (see chart) – largest sovereign buyer and one of the largest buyers in general. Although we do not know how much gold the People’s Bank of China is quietly accumulating.

Russia now looks set to become the world’s second largest producer of gold, after China and surpassing current world number two gold producer Australia.

Israeli settlers unleash dog pack on Palestinian kids

Israeli settlers have unleashed a large pack of dogs on Palestinian children, brutally injuring one near Salfit in the center of the occupied West Bank.

The dogs harshly savaged the five-year-old boy, who is in dire need of several surgeries, including a facial reconstructive one.

The boy, identified as Karmel Moayyad Shakir, was playing with his peers in the village of Azawiyeh when the illegal settlers from the nearby Kannat settlement arrived at the spot along with a large pack of dogs.

Before the boy’s family could intervene, the dogs attacked the five-year-old who was lucky enough not to die, yet sustained severe injuries.

Is the Smallest Guy on the Playground Bullying the Big Kid?

ISIS representatives beheading journalist James Foley has shocked the Western media this week, as the Islamic extremist group has upped the ante in it’s mission to create a Caliphate across the Middle East.

Firstly, it must be acknowledged that James Foley was executed by a regime, in retaliation against another regime he wasn’t a part of. Foley’s death in the line of duty as a reporter is a tragic and cruel loss of life, his only crime being a desire to inform people.

His murder has brought with it an abundance of new questions of how best to deal with this terrorist threat, and once again brings forth the issue of how much is too much? When must the line be drawn?

US Readying More Troops to ‘Crush’ ISIS

The Obama Administration has never been one to let a sad piece of news slip by unexploited, and when news emerged last night of the beheading of journalist James Foley by ISIS, they were quick to transition their narrative to fit the new story.

The US was already escalating the Iraq War at an alarming pace under the guise of a “humanitarian intervention,” but now are using Foley’s killing as the official justification to continue that escalation in the name of revenge.

President Obama presented ISIS as a “cancer” that had to be “extracted” from the Middle East, going on to accuse them of plotting genocide and offering “nothing but an endless slavery.”

Obama went on to declare that “no just God would stand for what they did yesterday and what they do every single day,” vowing his own relentless pursuit of them.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Okay, Barry and John; here are your rifles... Here are your parachutes. We ran out of the desert camo but here are a couple bright day-glo orange jumpsuits left over from the CIA torture centers. Watch your heads climbing into that transport plane, and we will call Iraq and tell them you are on your way to kick their butts all by yourself.

But We The People remember how we were tricked into the first invasion of Iraq with a hoax about stolen Kuwaiti incubators.

We The People remember how we were tricked into the second invasion of Iraq with a hoax about Saddam's nuclear bombs.

Frankly, this beheading video just seems like more of the same.

So you will understand if we sit this one out and keep our kids safe at home.

New PSA: “Because Fluoride!”

The same government that has no problem legalizing all kinds of chemicals that wreak havoc on your entire body…really cares about your teeth. A lot. Enough to add chemical byproducts from fertilizer manufacturing to your water for you whether you like it or not. For your teeth. They don’t care enough about you to add, say, vitamins to the water while they’re in there adding that fluoride…but your teeth. Yes. Your teeth (and only your teeth) are very, very important to the government.

State Department requests 300 more US troops for Iraq: official

The U.S. State Department has requested additional military personnel to provide security in Iraq, a U.S. official said on Wednesday.

The request for additional military personnel, which would include fewer than 300 people, has not yet been approved, the official said on condition of anonymity.

The U.S. military has already sent more than 800 soldiers to Iraq since Islamic State fighters took over much of the country's north in June.

US accuses Israel of targeting relatives of kidnapped and murdered Palestinian 16-year-old

The United States on Wednesday charged Israel had targeted members of a Palestinian family whose teenaged son was kidnapped and killed in July along with two cousins, who are US citizens.

Tensions between Palestinians and Israelis in annexed east Jerusalem plunged to a new low on July 2 when 16-year-old Mohammed Abu Khder was snatched from an east Jerusalem street and later found burned alive.

Israeli police arrested six alleged Jewish extremists as suspects and on July 17 charged three, freeing the others.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This may be the reaosn Israel; is again trying to claim HAMAS kidnapped and killed the three teens in the West Bank, to create an "equivalency" for the death of the American.

Congress Proposes New Law Prohibiting Citizens from Buying Body Armor

H.R. 5344 is a bill currently going through Congress that would ban the purchase of body armor.

Violation would carry CRIMINAL penalties, including up to ten years in prison.

Many bullet-resistant items on the market now, such as bulletproof backpacks for school children, would be banned by this legislation.

This is incredible given that the legislation is all about banning something that is purely defensive.
