Value Received for those Deceived or True Value Comprehended.

So many of us think ourselves to be smart, lucky or privileged because we climbed to the top of a pyrite plated garbage heap. So intoxicated are they that they do not notice the smell. They do not notice the atmosphere and they do not see the precarious perch of their position. They are upside down and backwards and we must be upside down and backwards to them; walking contrary to all the things they engage themselves in. What a pipe dream it all is and how quickly it goes away. Then the dreamers awaken in a desolate field, with no company but the most undesirable imaginable, besides of course, one another.

Freddie Gray’s Second Amendment rights were violated — where is the NRA?

Mosby also announced that in fact, the weapon police found on Gray was not illegal after all. He was in possession of a knife that was not only legal under Maryland law, but its blade was tucked in a safe position and was inside his pocket.

Freddie Gray, it turns out, was legally bearing arms, as the Second Amendment of the Constitution guarantees.

His arrest, and his death, appear to be a violation of a number of his civil rights, and those rights include his Second Amendment rights to carry a weapon.

Independence Supporters in South East Ukraine Follow Russian Orders - NATO

NATO Supreme Allied Commander Gen. Philip Breedlove claims that independence fighters of the self-proclaimed people's republics of Donetsk and Luhansk (DPR and LPR) in southeastern Ukraine are under Russian command.

The United States, the European Union and NATO have repeatedly accused Russia of being involved in the Ukrainian conflict, going as far as to claim that Russia has been sending troops and weapons to aid DPR and LPR in countering the attacks of Kiev forces that launched a special military operation in Ukraine's southeast in April, 2014.

Russia has repeatedly denied the West's accusations, which have not been supported with any factual evidence, also expressing concern over the recent build-up of NATO forces along its borders.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to NATO Supreme Allied Commander Gen. Philip Breedlove; sir, where, precisely, is your irrefutable proof that this is happening?!?

It appears that because you have none, you can present none, is this not the reality here?!?

The American people now fully expect those in power to lie us into serial wars, which are generally excellent for those corporations forming the US/NATO military industrial complex, but generally lousy for We the People.

We remember, very clearly:

1. The "Gulf of Tonkin" incident, which was used to inflame the war in Vietnam.
2. The Israeli attack on the USS Liberty, for which the US government has never made it take responsibility, with many killed and gravely wounded.
3. The charge that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.
4. The charge that we had to use the RPT (responsibility to protect principal) to cause regime change in Libya, and we can see how well the overthrow of Qaddafi has gone there.
5. The claim that Iran already has a nuclear bomb
6. Al Basshar was gassing his own Alawite people.
7. The propping up of a US puppet in Yemen, until the Yemenite people had had quite enough, and ran the guy out of town on a rail

So sir, if Americans, and Europeans, are skeptical about this charge, please understand that particularly on the American side, we are tired of being lied to in order to muster up support for more wars. You do not, and will not, have it, in order to declare a war on Russia.

And you have to know this: the US and NATO, even with combined strength, do not have the money, the manufacturing, and the troop strength to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia.

Oh, and by the way, just a note about what the US legislature is doing to fan the flames of war in Ukraine, as reported this morning at RT.com:

Citing an anti-Russia policy brief, US lawmakers approved $200 million for providing “lethal weapons of a defensive nature” to the Ukrainian government as part of the $600 billion Pentagon budget proposal for the fiscal year 2016. The House Armed Services Committee passed its proposal for the 2016 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) with a bipartisan vote of 60 to 2, in what Defense News described as a “marathon” session that ended around 4:30am on Thursday. Section 1532 of the 498-page document calls for the US to provide assistance, “including training, equipment, lethal weapons of a defensive nature, logistics support, supplies and services, and sustainment to the military and national security forces of Ukraine” through the end of September 2016. In addition to the $200 million allocated for the program, the proposal also authorizes the Pentagon to “accept and retain contributions, including in-kind contributions, from foreign governments.” Read more US House urges Obama to send arms to Ukraine The bill says the purpose of the assistance is to back the government of Ukraine in “protecting and defending the Ukrainian people from attacks posed by Russian-backed separatists,” as well as “securing its sovereign territory against foreign aggressors” and “promoting the conditions for a negotiated settlement to end the conflict.”

Sir, I will attest to you that this is pure madness, and setting the US on a path toward war with Russia. I understand about having a strong defense. But as a Christian pacifist, well into her 60s, I believe very strongly that the art of negotiation and win/win are tools which the US government needs to relearn, and very quickly.

The last thing ANYONE on this planet needs is a 3rd world war; the unintended consequences of such a war may well be both horrific...and irreversible.

Anger as Hurricane Sandy victims have to pay back emergency aid with interest

Debt collectors called in while Federal Emergency Management Agency examines allegations that engineering reports doctored to cut insurance bill.

Thousands of families whose homes were destroyed by Hurricane Sandy are being ordered to repay some of the compensation they received from the government.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is not only demanding interest on what it says were overpayments, but Washington is ready to call in debt collectors to recoup the cash.
That is not the only blow faced by families whose lives were devastated by the October 2012 hurricane which claimed 117 lives in the US and caused an estimated $50 billion (£32.5 billion) damage.
FEMA has, under pressure from senators, started investigating allegations that engineers’ reports into the damage suffered by home owners were deliberately doctored to deny victims insurance payouts.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Talk about adding insult to injury!!

It appears that the ALLEGED Federal Emergency Management Agency has morphed into the Federal Enemy of Most Americans!!

The Cult of Cop Worship

The tragic and yet unexplained death of Freddie Gray while in custody of the Baltimore Police has once again brought the issue of police violence and misconduct to the forefront of the news cycle. The Freddie Gray matter followed a pattern that has become all too familiar in the U.S. A young man from a minority community is arrested for trivial, or in the case of Gray non-existent offenses, has a brief interaction with the police and inexplicably suffers a resulting death. Anger in the community, largely resulting from generations of poverty, despair and violence at the hands of police acting as an occupying force, boils over into civil unrest that by and large displaces the original police misconduct as the focal point of the media's attention.

BOSTON OFFICER WAVES GUN IN VIDEOGRAPHER’S FACE

At one time an unknown Boston police officer walks up to the man
filming and asks, “Do you want to go for a ride with me in my cruiser?”
The man asks why and the officer states he (man recording) could get
some ‘real’ action then. Then the officer decides to walk away and you
think the interaction is over but all of the sudden you hear, “don’t put
the camera down, point it here.” As the man raises the camera you
notice the officer coming back with a gun in his hand. He gets very
close to the camera while saying, “this is why we’re here.”
Was the gun a weapon in a crime? If so, should the officer be
carrying it around? Isn’t it evidence? Or was this weapon found during a
search? Regardless, I still don’t know what point the officer was
trying to make. So you have a gun? Great, why don’t you focus on the
crime committed with that gun and not on the person merely filming the police.

How the Pentagon Could Soon Share Americans’ Data With Foreign Militaries

The new strategy indirectly, but unequivocally, ties into information-sharing legislation that’s slowly making its way to the President’s desk. Among the various bills moving around Capitol Hill, the most important is the Cyber Information Sharing Act. Among other things, CISA would protect companies from being sued for sending data about their users to DHS, which would be permitted to send it in real time to DOD and other U.S. agencies and outfits. In turn, DOD’s new strategy claims the right to to share cyber threat data beyond the United States. Presumably, that would include information obtained via CISA.

But if CISA or its cousins becomes law, what kind of information might fly from company servers to DHS to DOD and then around world? Members of the privacy community describe the scope as incredibly broad.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This proposed legislation is yet another evisceration of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, cementing the disempowerment of We the People to control our own data, and what happens to it.

Israel blames Arab neighbors for stalling on nuke-free zone

10 Nazi War Criminals Who May Escape Justice Forever

As time ticks onward, the atrocities committed in Nazi Germany are fading from living memory and into the pages of history books. Those who survived the Third Reich, the concentration camps, and Hitler’s mad regime are dying—and that means our hunt for the remaining free Nazi war criminals is coming to an end. Men responsible for some of the most heinous acts in recent history are dying free, and our time to bring them to justice is growing increasingly limited.

Polls Show Youngest Americans Are Skeptical of Global Warming

When it comes to global warming, there is a wide variety of opinions. While mainstream science contends that it’s an open and shut case, others believe quite the opposite. There are also plenty of folks in-between who do believe the planet is warming, but that it’s not being caused by human activity. You wouldn’t know that if you talked to most global warming advocates though. To them, climate skepticism is a kooky, marginal opinion that will soon go the way of the dodo.

Recent polling has proven otherwise however.

It’s official: Police were ordered to stand down and let the Baltimore riots rage out of control

Up until now, there had been some unconfirmed reports that police in Baltimore had been ordered to “stand down” during the riots, but nobody had been willing to come forward and go on the record. Now that has all changed. Michael Lewis is the Sheriff of Wicomico County, Maryland and what he has to say is absolutely jaw dropping. When he saw what was happening in Baltimore, he gathered up some of his fellow officers and drove down to the city to help. But when he got there, he says that all of the police were being ordered not to take any action and to let the rioters destroy property. Lewis made this astounding claim during a discussion on a Baltimore radio station…

Oil Prices Up, Gasoline Prices Up

“A rebound in crude oil prices has fueled up gasoline prices in the last week across the United States, with even bigger spikes in the West Coast, where refinery problems have returned. The national average stands at a four month high, though for this date prices remain at their lowest since 2009. Late last week, West Texas Intermediate crude oil stood near $58 a barrel, the highest since December 15, 2014. That price stands some $10 a barrel higher than a month ago, and has been a key contributor to the rise in gasoline prices that many states are witnessing. Refinery issues along the West Coast have added insult to injury for Californians, where prices are up by 25 cents per gallon just in the last week in some areas.”

Powerful report on sexual abuse in (Canadian) military calls for outside-chain-of-command solution

The report from former Supreme Court Justice Marie Deschamps on sexual misconduct and harassment in the Canadian Armed Forces is blistering and powerful.

It describes "a sexualized environment in the armed forces … characterized by the frequent use of swear words and highly degrading expressions that reference women's bodies, sexual jokes, innuendos, discriminatory comments with respect to the abilities of women, and unwelcome sexual touching..."

That would be bad enough.

But Deschamps goes on to say that this sexualized environment leads to the widespread "use of sex to enforce power relationships and to punish and ostracize a member of a unit."

REVEALED: Freddie Gray suffered fatal 'catastrophic injury when he fell head first in back of police van and broke neck as head hit bolt' - and police admit mystery secret stop on journey

An investigation has concluded Freddie Gray broke his neck after falling head-first into the back of the police van as it was moving, it was reported today.

Medical and law enforcement sources briefed on the police investigation told ABC News Gray's 'catastrophic' head injuries were consistent with hitting a bolt 'in the back door of the van'.

They claimed there was 'no evidence' Gray sustained a fatal spine injury during his arrest, which was caught on camera on a street side on April 12.

According to ABC's sources, Gray was standing in the van, bent over with his hand cuffed behind his back and his head pointing towards the back door.

It is believed he fell into the door, breaking his neck.

11 Examples Of How Evil Is Growing In America Like A Cancerous Tumor

Have you heard of “arterial tapping”, “flakka” or “cyberextortion”? In America today, just about every conceivable type of evil that you could possibly name is growing, and we are even inventing new kinds of evil that the world has never seen before. It is very easy for us to point to the looting and violence in Baltimore and call that evil, but there is far more to the social decay of America than just that. The foundations of our society are rotting and decaying in thousands of different ways, and our biggest problem as a nation is what is found inside our own hearts. We have rejected the values and principles that were handed down to us by previous generations of Americans because we believed that we knew better than they did. But now look at us. Our country is falling apart all around us, and we only have ourselves to blame.

Now the UK’s National Health Service has given us another unfortunate condition to look forward to. They recently told all doctors to ask every patient over 75 if they would like to establish a “do not resuscitate” order for future emergencies. In some cases, the doctors are ordering their nurses to cold-call every elderly patient, and everyone with a long-term condition, to see if they have “thought about resuscitation.”

12 Unanswered Questions About the Baltimore Riots That They Don’t Want Us to Ask

Why did the Baltimore riots seem like they were perfectly staged to be a television event? Images of police vehicles burning made for great television all over the planet, but why were there abandoned police vehicles sitting right in the middle of the riot zones without any police officers around them in the first place? Why was the decision made ahead of time to set a curfew for Tuesday night and not for Monday night? And why are Baltimore police officers claiming that they were ordered to “stand down” and not intervene as dozens of shops, businesses and homes went up in flames? Yes, the anger over the death of Freddie Gray is very real. Police brutality has been a major problem in Baltimore and much of the rest of the nation for many years.

A series of events have brought the subject of high frequency trading abuses once again to the forefront of the financial news reportage.

Although the SEC has investigated high frequency trading and its impact on the market for years, it is yet to explain, never mind halt, the inexplicable streaks of consecutive winning trading days that banks and hedge funds routinely report. On the other side of every winning transaction is an investor, who is losing money and none too happy about it. Where are the market watchdogs that are supposed protect investors from predatory trading?

Turning America into a battlefield: A blueprint for locking down the nation

In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.—President Dwight D. Eisenhower, 1961

The Right Is Race-Baiting on Baltimore

onservative reaction to the unrest in Baltimore sometimes looks like a page out of the old "silent majority" playbook. The right has so far blamed the crisis on unions, welfare, single-parent families, Democrats, the "animalism" of Baltimore residents, and President Obama. Is there a political agenda taking root to exploit this crisis in 2016?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Is this a trick question?

Former Pasco cop is suspect in 1986 Spokane homicide

Police in Spokane say a former Pasco police officer is a suspect in a 1986 homicide in Spokane.

Spokane detectives say they have identified Richard J. Aguirre as a suspect using DNA evidence.

The Spokesman-Review reported Thursday that Ruby Doss was 27 when she was found strangled in Spokane in 1986.

Police say Aguirre’s DNA matches DNA that was collected when Doss was killed.

SOME ARREST DATA THAT MAY HELP EXPLAIN THE BALTIMORE RIOTS

For years, Baltimore had a policy that led to tens of thousands of wrongful arrests?. Baltimore was forced to settle with the ACLU in 2010 and enact a series of reforms. The initiative has now more or less ended, but the damage it caused obviously lingers. “Never mind what it did to your jury pool,” Simon told the Marshall Project. “Now every single person of color in Baltimore knows the police will lie.”

Baltimore Riots And A Vision Of Things To Come

By Brandon Turbeville

The recent death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray at the hands of police in Baltimore, MD has now been added to the long list of American citizens murdered by the law enforcement community. Video footage of Gray’s arrest alone is cause enough for anger but his subsequent death after wounds inflicted by police – while not on video – are an atrocious case of neglect at best and outright torture and murder at worst. Given the track record of the US law enforcement community and the history of Baltimore’s policing in general, the latter is the most likely scenario.

US army exercise on preventing civil unrest spread to Tennessee

New videos have been released over the "riot control teams" for the last few weeks. National Guard along with police and US military forces undertake training exercises across the United States. Training is based under riot control and martial-law scenarios.

According to the officials, the 134th Air Refueling Wing of the Tennessee Air National Guard and the Knoxville Police Department trainings take place once in a month. The troops take turns of being rioters, who throw objects and powder at each other.

"We use this training because we know that if we have to use it in the outside world or within a base then we're ready," National Guard official said.

The troops are to deal with civil unrest and domestic disorder.

The police officers are training the Guard troops, "in case they ever come in contact with a riot control situation," according to the official.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is obvious the government knows that some huge financial correction is going to hit the US and world economy, which could well plunge some portions of this country into chaos.

And as a Christian pacifist, who never advocates violence, I am urging Mike's readers and listeners NOT to give this government the war they are prepared to fight and win against you, as these exercises demonstrate.

Be calm, prepare, the best you can, and have patience.

The next major change in government will not be won with weapons, but with computer keyboards, sharing what you know with whom you know.

CA SB277 ON VACCINES MOVES TOWARD DISASTROUS PASSAGE

California Senate Bill 277 has passed through the Judiciary Committee, and needs another Committee’s rubber stamp before it arrives on the Senate floor for debate—and what looks like a ride into law.

Governor Brown will sign the Bill. Brown has become a standard fool. He’s worn out. Whatever interesting ideas he may have entertained in his former “moonbeam” incarnation are gone in the wind.

Bill277 eliminates the personal belief and religious exemptions from vaccination. It also states that children cannot attend public or private school unless they are vaccinated according to the State’s schedule.

Medical exemptions are still allowed, but these won’t be easy to come by, because physicians who grant them will be scrutinized and harassed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wonder if this is going to cause a huge explosion in home schooling in California, and potentially other states, if unvaccinated kids cannot attend either public or private schools.

America’s Police Will Fight the Next Riot With These Stink Bombs

As protesters and police officers clash on the streets of divided cities such as Baltimore, Maryland, and Ferguson, Missouri, some police departments are stockpiling a highly controversial weapon to control civil unrest.

It’s called Skunk, a type of “malodorant,” or in plainer language, a foul-smelling liquid. Technically nontoxic but incredibly disgusting, it has been described as a cross between “dead animal and human excrement.” Untreated, the smell lingers for weeks.

The Israeli Defense Forces developed Skunk in 2008 as a crowd-control weapon for use against Palestinians. Now Mistral, a company out of Bethesda, Maryland, is providing it to police departments in the United States, including the Ferguson PD.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

JUST great: instead of dealing with the situations which led to the protests in first place (like police brutality, which is a national embarrassment here in the US), police departments are going to control crowds with stink bombs developed to be used by Israelis against Palestinians; and then to address any issues the Palestinian people have with them constructively.

Baltimore police cite missteps in arrest of Freddie Gray; Hogan asks for calm

Top officials here acknowledged Friday that Freddie Gray was not treated properly when he was arrested nearly two weeks ago but said they are still investigating the severe spinal injury that appears to have led to his death.

Police Commissioner Anthony W. Batts said Gray was not seat-belted after being placed in a transport van, a violation of department policy. Deputy Commissioner Kevin Davis said that Gray was not offered medical attention despite several requests and that officers should have called for an ambulance when they arrested him.

CAVING IN TO CORPORATISM: ENDGAME FOR SECRET “TRADE” PACT NEGOTIATIONS

Two game-changing trade agreements — the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and its sister pact, the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) — are perilously close to completion. Their basic aims are three-fold: to elevate the rights of “investors,” that is of corporations, above the rights of citizens; to transfer sovereignty from the seats of national government to the corporate HQs of the world’s largest multinationals; and to cement Western domination of the global economy for the foreseeable future.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the last bitter step of corporations owning the world, setting legislation norms, and pretty much, in this country, completely ignoring the needs and concerns of American citizens.

Multinational corporations have pretty much owned the world for some time now; these pacts simply make it "official". That is why Obama won't even let Congress see the pertinent documents on these treaties.

CNN reporter blames veterans for Baltimore riots

In a moment of what may have been unbelievable candor, a CNN host demonstrated why hers is one of the least-watched cable news channels on the air today.

Her name: Brooke Baldwin.

As reported by Breitbart News' media critic John Nolte, Baldwin made the outrageous insinuation that veterans, somehow, were responsible, at least in part, for the riots recently taking place in Baltimore.

"After more than a year of CNN pouring gasoline all over America with hysterical, and oftentimes phony, stories of American racism, the left-wing network's afternoon anchor Brooke Baldwin finally took it to the next level by blaming American veterans for the Baltimore riots."

Baltimore: Violent demonstrations or demonstrations against violence and injustice?

I know what the anti-RT brigade in the corporate media are expecting here. They imagine I’ll take great satisfaction from current events in Baltimore. No, I don’t. There’s nothing good about watching a nation or city fragment along ethnic or racial lines.

Just as there’s no joy in Ukraine’s current predicament, where the State Department stoked festering ethnic tensions and destroyed a country. Nor was there anything positive about the civil war that raged in Ireland’s north-east corner when I was growing up a couple of hundred miles south.

Public School “Child Nutrition Supervisor” Served Students Reeking, Six-Year-Old Pork

(Nutritional Anarchy) Stories continually coming out of public schools illustrate time and again that our school lunches are “bad,” but this story makes Michelle Obama’s school lunch program look like a fancy dinner at a four-star restaurant.

After a determination made by someone given the title “Child Nutrition Supervisor” and the school’s cafeteria managers who performed “tests,” a decision was made to serve school children six-year-old pork in Hawkins County, Tennessee.

First of all… if you have to perform tests before you serve something obviously questionable enough to warrant tests to hundreds of trusting, innocent children…

Here’s an actual quote about the meat from local news outlet WBIR:

“The actual woman making a stink about it said it smelled so bad they made gravy to put over the meat to give it a smell and give it a better taste,” said [Hawkins County Commissioner Michael] Herrell.

Ew.

In Closed Door Meeting, Police Commissioner Says No New Evidence of Force Related Injuries to Freddie Gray

According to State Delegate Jill Carter who attended the meeting, emotions ran high as the Commissioner gave a limited briefing on the few details related to the case. Carter told The Real News Network the Commissioner said after several weeks of investigation there is still no evidence of injuries caused by use of force. The only injuries thus far are to his spine.

We contacted the police who confirmed that the Commissioner told the delegation there is no other evidence of use of force found thus far, but they declined to reveal exactly how the spinal injuries were caused.

Baltimore’s Disgrace Is History of Police Violence

While much of the police’s racist violence is waged out of sight — such as when a mentally ill black female prison inmate was shocked to death with a Taser in February while shackled — the landscape is sufficiently militarized to remind us we’re living in a war zone (albeit not of the variety envisioned by Breitbart.com). All day Saturday, police helicopters and drones circled overhead, giving the impression that “protesting while black” might also be some sort of punishable offense.

And on Monday, when tensions boiled over and young Baltimoreans repeatedly threw rocks at police tanks and cruisers, the scene was eerily reminiscent of the Occupied Territories, which should surprise no one who has followed U.S. police militarization in accordance with the Israel Defense Forces model.

The US Dollar Just Took a Massive Plunge

After the Commerce Department released their assessment of the US Economy, the markets were not pleased. The data revealed that America’s GDP has only grown at a 0.2% annual rate. Both American and European stock markets dipped, with the Dow Jones industrial average dropping 49.78 points, and Nasdaq losing 19.71 points. What was even more shocking was the sudden drop in the value of the US dollar, which fell to 9-week lows.

This marks the second biggest drop in 6 years, and the worst decline since the dollar began its meteoric rise in 2014. Despite this, recent polls show that American confidence in the economy is remaining stable. However, it’s hard to say how long the media can maintain this level of optimism if this trend continues. As Zero Hedge put it, “This poses a problem for talking-heads: if USD strength is indicative of US economic strength… what does a plunging USD imply?”
