MH17 Verdict: Real Evidence Points to US-Kiev Cover-up of Failed False Flag

Until this past Monday, the downing of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17 on July 17th, 2014, was a potential game changer for global geopolitics and the New Cold War. However, a funny thing happened on the way to the Kremlin…

In this report, we will lay out the facts based on a wide breadth of available information and data surrounding MH17. We will also present and give critique to Washington and Kiev’s “mountain of evidence” that has saturated US and European-based media coverage since the incident took place. 21WIRE has compiled this report with the help of many contributors and references from English-speaking media, as well as material translated from Russian and Ukrainian media sources, along with other historical references to provide context. Our objective is to get as close to the truth as possible. Although many revelations will appear to be self-evident, we still encourage the public to draw their own conclusions regarding this pivotal event.

Air Algerie Flight AH5017 crashes with 5 Canadians on board

Burkina Faso's transport minister says five Canadians were among those onboard an Air Algerie flight that officials said disappeared from radar over northern Mali after heavy rains were reported.

The plane was carrying 116 people from Burkina Faso to Algeria's capital, according to the plane's owner and government officials in France and Burkina Faso. Nearly half of the passengers were French.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Funny how when Malaysian Flight 17 went down the media immediately knew it was a missile (just like they immediately knew it was Osama Bin Laden when they were reporting that 9-11 happened, even before the buildings actually collapsed). But for this missing airliner and Malaysian Flight 370, nobody knows that really happened until they find the wreckage (if they do) and conduct an investigation.

So, what does it mean when the news already has cause and culprit as the event happens? Probably the same thing it means when BBC reports the collapse of World Trade Center Building Seven 26 minutes before it actually happens! :)

Report: Ukrainian Fighter Jets Hid Behind Passenger Plane, Pulled Away and Dropped Bombs, and Then Hid Behind Plane Once Again

Senior U.S. officials now admit that the Malaysian airlines passenger plane was likely accidentally shot down.

The Russian government claims Ukrainian fighter jets were flying very close to Malaysian Flight 17 when it was shot down. Others claim that Ukrainian fighter jets were escorting the Malaysian plane through Ukrainian airspace.

However, a Youtube video made a month before Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was shot down alleges that Ukranian fighter jets were hiding behind passenger planes, pulling away temporarily, dropping bombs on Ukrainian separatists, and then hiding again behind the plane (minor corrections of spelling and punctuation):

Photographs of a plane pieces indicating detonation.

A pieces of wreckage from the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-200 that was shot down in eastern Ukraine last week bears marks of small pieces of high-velocity shrapnel that apparently crippled the jet in flight. Riddled with these perforations and buffeted by a blast wave as it flew high above the conflict zone, the plane then most likely sheared apart..

Damage is consistent with the effects of a fragmentary warhead carried by an Buk missile system.

John Oliver: We’re happy to ignore it because it’s so easy not to care about prisoners

The US has over two million people in prison or jail, which is nearly one in every one hundred adults. In case its unclear to you how utterly screwed up that is, think about the fact that we actually incarcerate more people than China. Draconian drug laws, mandatory minimums and plain old racism all play a role in this crisis., but there seems to be little political will behind doing anything about it. John Oliver gave an excellent summary of the issue on Last Week Tonight.

Fact: The U.S. has No Proof of MH17 shoot-down and relied on Social Media

QUESTION: How is it exactly that you know that it was fired from Russian – I mean, from separatist-held territory?

MS. HARF: Well, we have a great deal of information that the Secretary laid out yesterday, and I can go back through some of it today. But we do know first that Russian-backed separatists were in possession of an SA-11 system as early as Monday, July 14th. This is from intercepts of separatist communications posted on YouTube by the Ukrainian Government.

QUESTION: Well, is there anything – okay, is there anything other – because there’s other --
MS. HARF: I can keep going if – or you want to jump in.

QUESTION: Well, is there stuff that’s other than social media that you’re talking --
MS. HARF: Yes, absolutely. There is.

QUESTION: Okay. So what is it that’s other than social media?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Funny how the US Government ignored social media when they were pointing out the flaws in the Obamacare website (and Obamacare itself).

Funny how the US Government ignored social media when they were posting pictures of record snow and ice even as the government kept insisting that carbon taxes were the only way to save the Earth from Human-Caused Global Warming.

Funny how the US Government ignored social media when they were demonstrating (using the government's own numbers) that the official unemployment figures are a total sham.

Only NOW is the US Government saying that social media is a reliable source of information!

Thanks for the compliment, Ms. Harf!

‘Kiev will have to answer many questions’ as UN urges intl MH17 crash probe – Moscow

The UN Security Council has condemned the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 over Ukraine and called for an international probe into the incident in a unanimously adopted resolution.

All 15-member states voted to pass the Australia-proposed resolution, condemning “in the strongest terms” the crash of Malaysian plane on July 17 in Donetsk region of Ukraine, which resulted in 298 people dead.

Follow Malaysia Airlines MH17 plane crash in Ukraine LIVE UPDATES

The UN also urged a "full, thorough and independent international investigation" into the incident. The resolution also asked local self-defense forces for their cooperation, such as avoiding “from any actions that may compromise the integrity of the crash site.”

Russia's UN ambassador, Vitaly Churkin, said he was pleased that the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) will have an important role during the investigation and welcomed that fact that the Netherlands will take on the leading role as well.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Common sense, people. Look for what should be there and isn't, and what should be there in the official story and isn't, is a REASON for either Russia or the eastern Ukrainian republics to shoot down a civilian passenger jet, knowing that such an act would turn world opinion against them.

Of course, Kiev has a very strong motive to shoot down Flight 17 and frame Russia and the eastern Ukrainian republics to turn world opinion against them. Motive, means, and opportunity, makes a very strong case that Flight 17 was shot down by a Kiev Su-25, as both the Spanish Air Traffic Controller and Russian radar data suggest. Qui bono? Who benefits? Who gets what they want?

IRS seeks help destroying another 3,200 hard drives

Days after IRS officials said in a sworn statement that former top agency employee Lois G. Lerner’s computer memory had been wiped clean, the agency put out word to contractors Monday that it needs help to destroy at least another 3,200 hard drives.

The Internal Revenue Service solicitation for “media destruction” services reflects an otherwise routine job to protect sensitive taxpayer information, but it was made while the agency’s record destruction practices remain under a sharp congressional spotlight.

State Dept. Annoyed at Press Questioning MH17 Narrative

The Obama Administration continues to reiterate its narrative on what happened to Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 with more certainty (and often different details) every day, but there is a stark lack of evidence, beyond a handful of “authenticity could not be verified” images floating around on social media.

With Russia denying the allegations, the US must have some really damning evidence to be so certain, right? Just so, insists the State Department, just don’t ask them to show any of it.

Defending the charges at today’s press briefing in an increasingly testy exchange with reporters, State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf referred the press to social media, while reiterating that there was totally better evidence out there that they just can’t see.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Don't you get it?!? WE will tell you what to think. That's our job! We're the @#$%ing government! You don't think for yourself. Just BELIEVE what we say, dammit. If we tell you two plus two equals five, @#%$ing believe it, and report that to those dumb sheep, because we need them to pay the bills and breed more soldiers if we are going to force the world back onto the US dollar to save the banks! What is WRONG with you people? God didn't give you a brain so you could actually USE it!!" -- Official White Horse Souse

(ahem)

It should be clear from the MH17 hoax that the US Government still does not fully comprehend that the tactics that worked in the 1950s and 1960s are hopelessly obsolete in the age of the internet.

This is actually a good thing, because the more they play these propaganda stunts and fall flat on their face, the quicker they hasten their own collapse, sending the US Government into the dustbin of history along with that other cold-war fossil, the USSR.

When the Government talks of Sanctions

Sanctions only serve the Government, not the People.

When a foreign country, such as Russia, Iran or Cuba, is at the receiving end of sanctions, only the people suffer. Americans suffer because they can’t export as much so they loose money. And the people in those foreign countries also suffer because they cannot receive the benefits of American-made products to make their lives better. In either case both governments benefit. How?

The US government enlarges its reach of power much like a two-bit mafia don: “Do what I say or else. Capisce?” It does not suffer because it produces nothing and its long arm is in every American pocket via the IRS and other tax authorities.

The foreign government is also happy because it too is a two-bit mafia don with its hands on every lever of the economy. When its people cannot progress they’re at its mercy: “Do what I say or no bread. Capisce?”

What's with Malaysian airlines? The odds against two in a row from the same airline are great enough to discourage thought of coincidence. Of course, these days, just about everything is enemy action. An actual accident is enough of a surprise to result in temporary flummoxing. Let's ask Snowden what he thinks. Hey, Snowjob! What's this Malaysian plane downings scenario all about? “Well, first let me say that we were prepared to know what we could have known but we chose not to know it. I think Donald Rumsfield explained that. See, there's a giganormous infrastructure of red eyes in the trees that are watching 'every move you make, every breath you take and every leg you break'. I, in good conscience, could not stand by while all the things I really can't go into detail about were taking place.

Was MH17 Sabotaged By An IsraeliSecurity Team At AmsterdamSchiphol Airport?

As the only non-European journalist to cover The Hague inquiry into the Amsterdam crash of El Al flight 1862 (October 1992), which destroyed a Biljmeer district apartment complex, I discovered many aspects of the Israeli security set-up at Schipol International Airport and the role of the Mossad intelligence agency in secret operations there, one of Europe’s business transport hubs. This same airport spy network is very likely involved in the recent crash of Malaysian Airlines flight 17 over the Ukraine.

Malaysian jet tragedy propagandized – Ron Paul

Referring to the tragic downing of a Malaysian Airlines plane over eastern Ukraine, former Texas congressman Ron Paul warned against jumping to conclusions over the culprits.

Drawing parallels between the potential for a Russian-made missile system’s connection to the attack of the passenger jet on Thursday over the restive Donetsk region of Ukraine and the capture of US-made weapons by Islamist insurgents in Iraq, Paul pointed out that the missile’s potential source of manufacture was largely immaterial.

“That may well be true, but guess what, ISIS has a lot of American weapons," said Paul. "We sent weapons into Syria to help the rebels and al-Qaida ends up getting it — it doesn't mean that our American government and Obama deliberately wanted ISIS to get American weapons."

Spanish Air Controller @ Kiev Borispol Airport: Ukraine Military Shot Down Boeing #MH17

This Kiev air traffic controller is a citizen of Spain and was working in the Ukraine. He was taken off duty as a civil air-traffic controller along with other foreigners immediately after a Malaysia Airlines passenger aircraft was shot down over the Eastern Ukraine killing 295 passengers and crew on board.

The air traffic controller suggested in a private evaluation and basing it on military sources in Kiev, that the Ukrainian military was behind this shoot down. Radar records were immediately confiscated after it became clear a passenger jet was shot down.

Military air traffic controllers in internal communication acknowledged the military was involved, and some military chatter said they did not know where the order to shoot down the plane originated from.

Obviously it happened after a series of errors, since the very same plane was escorted by two Ukrainian fighter jets until 3 minutes before it disappeared from radar.

MH17 flight path story changes AGAIN!

It appears it went further north than usual to skirt round large storms. I am sure of that and have it from my own source – a neutral aviation one.

Jul 18 07:05

Questions over why Malaysian plane flew over Ukrainian warzone

What’s peculiar about MH17 is that the ill-fated flight was different from its usual path over Ukraine. According to data at flightaware.com, a website tracking civil aviation traffic, the flight on Thursday diverted about 200km north from the paths the Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777 had used in previous days. And it led the plane right over the war-torn Donetsk Region.

So far no official explanation has been given as to the unusual flight path.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This sounds like someone sent that plane into a war zone with the intention it get shot down. This is a replay of the Lusitania scam, in which the passenger ship (carrying a covert military cargo, to bait the Germans) was intentionally sent into a part of the Atlantic known to be crawling with U-Boats, without escorts.

It should be clear that neither Russia nor the Eastern Ukraine Separatists has the ability to order Air Traffic Control to shift the path of MH17 to the north to bring it into the kill zone.

Someone set that plane up to be shot down!

Who had the authority to order the change in flight path? Who benefits?? Who has the power to cover it all up?

Who?

Israeli Airport Security responsible at Schiphol Amsterdam

There was someone on an Israeli blogspot claiming that Israel ran the security on Schiphol Amsterdam.

http://israelmatzav.blogspot.com/2009/12/israeli-company-ran-security-...

Israeli television interviewed the CEO of the company that handles security at Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport last night. Unfortunately, he's an Israeli and it's an Israeli company. Not good. (I did not see the interview).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

See also All 9/11 Airports Serviced by
One Israeli Owned Company

So far, there is no actual evidence of a missile being fired. The plane might have been brought down by a bomb placed on board in Amsterdam, timed to go off as the plane crossed into Russian airspace. But if MH17 was delayed by just a few minutes out of the gate, then the bomb would go off over Ukraine, the wreckage come down on the Ukraine side of the border and the blame shifted from Russia to the separatists.

Or, Kiev simply used on of the BUK missile launchers Ukraine bought from Russia prior to the coup to shoot down a civilian jet and blame Russia/Separatists for it.

Armed mob carrying ‘Second American Revolution’ flags protests MI immigrant plan

More than 50 people carrying firearms and anti-government flags protested a proposal to temporarily house Central American children and teenagers in Vassar, Michigan.

The group, organized by anti-immigration activist Tamyra Murray, carried AR-15 rifles, handguns, Gadsden “Don’t Tread On Me” flags, and a “Second American Revolution” flag – which combines the Betsy Ross design with the Roman numeral II within a circle of 13 stars.

They marched from Vassar City Hall to Wolverine Human Services’ Pioneer Work and Learn Center, where 12- to 17-year-old boys from Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala could be housed until their immigration cases could be heard, reported The Saginaw News.

“We’re not against kids,” Murray said. “We have sympathy for the kids being used and exploited by the feds.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Tamyra Murray's fears are grounded in documented fact.

But my question is, why is this dramatic flood of America's happening now?!? What is the agenda here?!? Is it to force immigration reform, or is something else happening here? The amounts of money to feed, clothe, house, and educate these illegal immigrant kids will be staggering, and the Federal government is already broke, both morally and fiscally.

IS the Obama administration attempting to create rebellion here in the US, which would give the president the excuse for suspending the Constitution and Bill of Rights before the Congressional elections this year, and suspend them also?!?

I don't yet know the answer to these questions; all I can tell you is, something wicked this way comes.

State police now fingerprinting every Texan

The Texas Department of Public Safety has quietly embarked on a project to take the fingerprints of every Texan old enough to drive over the next 12 years, and add them to a statewide criminal history database.

Not only has the department made that momentous decision on its own, it doesn’t even have clear legal authority to do so.

The credit for breaking the news on those two items goes to consumer affairs columnist Dave Lieber of the Dallas Morning News, whose long-running “Watchdog” column often shows up in my Google Alerts, for obvious reasons.

As an old-school columnist, Lieber tends to keep his opinions subdued, and he doesn’t generally call people dishonest. But I have no problem with doing that, so I’d like to point out that the DPS spokesman he quotes at length is less than straightforward about his department’s legal authority.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is Code Napoleon Law writ large, which assumes every person is guilty until proven innocent; this is the absolute antithesis of American law, which presumes that every person is innocent until proven guilty.

And to put this info into a criminal data base?!?!? Heck, I don't even have an overdue library book!!

TSA Lets Illegals Fly Without ID, Harasses Mom Over Breast Milk

While the TSA is perfectly content to let illegal aliens (and by extension potential terrorists) fly without any proper form of ID, American moms like Nicole Moberg are being harassed over their breast milk.

On Friday it emerged that the TSA was allowing illegal aliens to fly on commercial airliners inside the U.S. without verifiable identification. As long as the individual was able to produce a Notice to Appear form, they were allowed to board the plane.

A TSA spokesperson immediately took to social media to deny the report, claiming media outlet Breitbart had lied about the story. However, the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) obtained a statement from the Border Patrol union which revealed that the TSA had reversed the policy in the aftermath of the Breitbart story.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Any government which so consistently and perniciously harasses innocent people, and consistently lies about its actions has delegitimized itself to the point of being thoroughly unworthy of support by its citizens.

And that, unfortunately, is precisely what the government of the United States of America has become; a sociopathic, morally and fiscally broken, dictatorial, third-world banana republic, with nuclear weapons.

Pro-Palestinian march turns violent in Paris, synagogue attacked

Thousands of people marched in Paris on Sunday to protest Israel’s Operation Protective Edge which has left over 160 Palestinians dead, most of them civilians. Some demonstrators clashed with police and attacked a synagogue.

Around 10,000 protesters walked peacefully through central Paris. They carried a large banner saying: "Total Support for the Struggle of the Palestinian People,” according to AP.

The demonstration turned violent at the end of the march on Bastille Square when some protesters started throwing projectiles at police officers, who in turn responded with tear gas, AFP reported.

The ones throwing the rocks were probably undercover cops giving the police an excuse to shut the protect down lest those poor Israelis get upset!

‘Diplomatic earthquake’ as Germany halts spy cooperation with US

The German government has instructed its intelligence agencies to limit their cooperation with their American counterparts “to the bare essentials” until further notice, according to media reports. The move follows news that Berlin requested on Thursday the immediate removal from Germany of the United States Central Intelligence Agency chief of station —essentially the top American official in the country. The request came after two German citizens, one working for the BND, Germany’s main external intelligence organization, and one working for the country’s Federal Ministry of Defense, were allegedly found to have been secretly spying for the US. German media reported on Thursday that the temporary halt in Berlin’s intelligence collaboration with Washington applies across the spectrum, with the exception of areas directly affecting tactical security concerns for Germany, such as the protection of its troops in Afghanistan, or defending against immediate terrorist threats.

More than half of the top 50 Central American cities from which children are leaving for the United States are in Honduras. Virtually none of the children have come from Nicaragua, a bordering country that has staggering poverty, but not a pervasive gang culture or a record-breaking murder rate. “Everyone has left,” Alan Castellanos, 27, the uncle of Anthony and Kenneth, said in an interview in late May. “How is it that an entire country is being brought to its knees?”

Americans Are Too Stupid For GMO Labeling, Congressional Panel Says

It's pretty rare that members of Congress and all the witnesses they've called will declare out loud that Americans are just too ignorant to be given a piece of information, but that was a key conclusion of a session of the House Agriculture Committee this week.

The issue was genetically modified organisms, or GMOs as they're often known in the food industry. And members of the subcommittee on Horticulture, Research, Biotechnology, and Foreign Agriculture, as well as their four experts, agreed that the genetic engineering of food crops has been a thorough success responsible for feeding the hungry, improving nutrition and reducing the use of pesticides.

People who oppose GMOs or want them labeled so that consumers can know what they're eating are alarmists who thrive on fear and ignorance, the panel agreed. Labeling GMO foods would only stoke those fears, and harm a beneficial thing, so it should not be allowed, the lawmakers and witnesses agreed.

Man Sues Feds After They Target Him for Photographing Rainbow Art

When 86-year-old photographer James Prigoff paused to photograph a natural gas storage tank in Boston 10 years ago, he was simply doing what countless of tourists have done before. The colorful tank, painted with a rainbow-like design, is a popular photo op. He had no reason to suspect his snapshot would prompt an ominous visit by a federal agent months later and the addition of his name to a government database of suspicious activity.

But his case is hardly unique. Similar circumstances have befallen four other people, who are suing the government over so-called suspicious activity reports, or SARs, filed against them.

Apparently, the collective paranoia of this government knows no bounds, under Obama's watch.

Justice declines to pursue allegations that CIA monitored Senate Intel staff

The Justice Department has decided not to pursue accusations that the CIA spied on the Senate Intelligence Committee and allegations that committee staff slipped classified documents from a secure agency facility, McClatchy has confirmed.

"The department carefully reviewed the matters referred to us and did not find sufficient evidence to warrant a criminal investigation," said Justice Department spokesman Peter Carr.

The news marks an apparent end to an extraordinary feud that spilled into the public forum in early March over the committee’s report on the agency’s post-9/11 enhanced interrogation program. The dispute included competing Justice Department referrals, with both the CIA and the Senate Intelligence Committee accusing the other side of criminal conduct throughout the course of the interrogation study.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is obvious that Obama's "Justice" department did not want to have the report on "enhanced interrogation" (translation: torture) see the light of day.

Facebook is spying on your mom, your relationships and your political views

Facebook has been spying on users' ethnicities, political views, romantic partners, and even how they talk to their children. (Unlike the mood study, the Facebook studies listed below are observational; they don't attempt to change users' behavior.)

It's unlikely Facebook users have heard about most of these studies, they've consented to them; the social network's Data Use Policy states: "We may use the information we receive about you…for internal operations, including troubleshooting, data analysis, testing, research and service improvement."

Exclusive: More Military Bases Asked to Provide Facilities for Illegal Aliens

As the border crisis continues, the Department of Defense is requesting that additional military bases make housing facilities and land available to accommodate a continued influx of illegal alien children.

According to information provided exclusively to Breitbart through a source requesting anonymity, Major General John T. Winters has specifically requested installation support for the Department of Homeland Security to provide temporary housing to unaccompanied alien children. The request requires bases to report any facilities across the U.S. that meet the following minimum specifications: a 24,000 square foot building, 15 acres of land "level and clear," and access to utilities. The information is due to be reported by Wednesday afternoon, July 9. As the border crisis continues, the Department of Defense is requesting that additional military bases make housing facilities and land available to accommodate a continued influx of illegal alien children.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The reason for housing these illegal immigrants on military encampments is simple; should reporters, or, God forbid, members of congress actually want to inspect these facilities to find out what is really going on, they can be rebuffed in the name of "national security"

Unfortunately, however, the United States of American HAS no "national security", courtesy of a deliberate Obama administration decision to completely leave our Southern borders undefended.

They are now undefended against disease; against possible "terrorists" sneaking in; and this economy will crash, because the US government doesn't have the money to pay for all of the services these illegal aliens will require.

But perhaps a "controlled economic crash" is precisely what the White House wants to have happen. As reported in zerohedge.com two days ago:

So just maybe the Fed fully intends on heeding the advice of the BIS, and is strategically positioning itself as a stalwart dove to shield itself from the public fallout of it’s orchestrated financial calamity. A particularly sound play from a political perspective in the event that things don’t go as smoothly as planned. One thing is certain at this point: An intentionally orchestrated crash is the direct recommendation of the BIS, per it’s annual report. That this action exists as a potential policy measure is now confirmed. The remaining question is: Would the Federal Reserve pursue such a policy measure openly, or behind the same curtains from which most of their historic policies were enacted. As we re-think Mrs. Yellen’s speech to the IMF, we are less certain that the Fed is as unwilling to intervene as Mrs Yellen would have us believe. Bringing forward the next leg of the cycle, may well be on the Fed’s agenda.

White House won’t comment on expulsion of top spy from Germany

The White House Thursday refused to comment on reports Germany had expelled its top spy in the country over an espionage row, but stressed intelligence ties between the two nations were vital.

Germany took the shock move after investigating two German men alleged to be acting as double agents for US intelligence, the latest twist in a long running showdown over American covert activity in the country.

“We have seen these reports and have no comment on a purported intelligence matter,” said National Security Council spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden.

“However, our security and intelligence relationship with Germany is a very important one and it keeps Germans and Americans safe,” Hayden said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Of COURSE, the US had no comment; what were the spokesdorks supposed to say on a matter of this magnitude?!?

Spying on one's alleged enemies is one thing; but spying on one of your allegedly geopolitically BFFs?!? That's tasteless, crude, and insulting.

Angela Merkel has to be steaming right now; and the big question now is, how will Germany actually respond as a nation to this?!?

I can guarantee the Obama administration one thing: it won't be pretty, coming hard on the heels of the previous spy scandal regarding Germany this year.

Monsanto's Herbicide Linked to Fatal Kidney Disease Epidemic: Could It Topple Monsanto?

Monsanto's herbicide Roundup has been linked to a mysterious fatal kidney disease epidemic that has appeared in Central America, Sri Lanka and India.
For years, scientists have been trying to unravel the mystery of a chronic kidney disease epidemic that has hit Central America, India and Sri Lanka. The disease occurs in poor peasant farmers who do hard physical work in hot climes. In each instance, the farmers have been exposed to herbicides and to heavy metals. The disease is known as CKDu, for Chronic Kidney Disease of unknown etiology. The "u" differentiates this illness from other chronic kidney diseases where the cause is known. Very few Western medical practitioners are even aware of CKDu, despite the terrible toll it has taken on poor farmers from El Salvador to South Asia.

David McQueen, a US delegate from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention who has since retired from the agency, explained the US position.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That such toxic chemicals are allowed to be sold - ANYWHERE - demonstrates, without question, the toxic grip Monsanto has on politicians world-wide.

Here in the Painful Aftermath. UPDATE ON LES VISIBLE

I suppose it was something over a week ago, give or take some hours, when I came tooling down the ladder of the loft and for reason that presently remain a mystery and... perhaps always will, my connection to the ladder ended and I did one of those original Die Hard endings. I know I hit the square meter of demo tile to one side of the ladder because I remember hearing it but the particulars of possible physics/geometry, whatever... escape me. Yes, I busted my left hip.

Is The Fed Going To Attempt A Controlled Collapse?

As most Fed watchers know, last week was interesting because Janet Yellen, speaking at IMF came out and said something quite surprising. In a nutshell, she said “It’s not the Fed’s job to pop bubbles”. While many market participants immediately took this to mean, “To the moon, Alice!” and started buying equities hand over fist, there’s another possible explanation for Mrs. Yellen’s proclamation of unwillingness: The Fed could be preparing to do exactly what it said it wouldn’t.

Here’s a quick re-cap of events: In the recently released Annual Report of the BIS: Bank for International Settlements (commonly thought of as the “central bank’s central bank”) the BIS made a rather ominous recommendation to it’s member banks: Pop this bubble now. Their specific language wasn’t quite so direct, but the message was just as clear.

Second US Spy Busted In Germany In One Week

It just hasn't been a good week for the CIA. A year after Edward Snowden revealed that the US was bugging Angela Merkel's cell phone, first one then, moments ago, Suddeutsche Zeitung revealed that a second "spy case" involving the US (read CIA) have been revealed. According to SZ, an unidentified man working in military-related area likely to be questioned today over suspicion of spying for a U.S. intelligence service in Germany. The home and office of the suspect were being searched in Berlin area. SZ adds that the case is more serious than unrelated allegations against double agent at BND Federal Intelligence Service that emerged last week.

Escalating Domestic Warfare

Last month, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) released a report titled “War Comes Home: The Excessive Militarization of American Policing,” shedding much needed light on the emergence of a militarist ethos in policing across the nation.

In a review of public records, such as incident reports, requested from more than 260 law enforcement agencies in 25 states and the District of Columbia, the ACLU found that, from the responses received, 818 SWAT operations from 20 local law enforcement agencies located in 11 states fully met their research criteria, which took geographic diversity into account, among other factors. The SWAT incidents that were analyzed fell in the time period between July 2010 and last October.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And a war against American citizens, courtesy of the Federal government, is precisely what we have going on right now. The ever-escalating police violence against Americans is only one symptom of the systemic problems with which we are dealing.

Good jobs continue to get offshored/outsourced with a vengeance; the US government is broke from these illegal and immoral wars; our education system is completely dysfunctional, save for a handful of private schools; between the Patriot Act, the Homeland Security Act, and the NDAA, the Constitution and Bill of Rights have been eviscerated; and homeless Veterans sleep in our streets, many times with zero ability to get the medical care they desperately need when they need it. Many of the people in Detroit have had their water turned off, but the US government has billions to fork out to Israel, even though this is illegal under the Symington amendment, because Israel is a nuclear armed nation which refuses to join the NNPT or have its nuclear sites inspected.

And Congress?!? Completely zero credibility these days, consisting mostly millionaires at this point, who don't give a damn about the citizens they allegedly represent, but spend all their time courting the large corporations which fund their election cycles.

This just...bites, and I frankly do not see any way out of it, short of either a complete economic collapse in the US, or a world war. Not a pleasant alternative either way.

Big Banks Want Power to Declare Cyber War

Wall Street’s biggest trade group has proposed a government-industry cyber war council to stave off terrorist attacks that could trigger financial panic by temporarily wiping out account balances, according to an internal document.

The proposal by the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association, known as Sifma, calls for a committee of executives and deputy-level representatives from at least eight U.S. agencies including the Treasury Department, the National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security, all led by a senior White House official.

The trade association also reveals in the document that Sifma has retained former NSA director Keith Alexander to “facilitate” the joint effort with the government. Alexander, in turn, has brought in Michael Chertoff, the former U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security, and his firm, Chertoff Group.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More than ever before, please do NOT have any more money in your personal bank account than you absolutely need with which to pay your bills.

This is not only a lousy idea, but also, the charges depositors will ultimately face will be epically nasty. IF these services will cost one million dollars per month, you can bet your sweet bippy that it will not be the banks absorbing those costs at all.

Barefoot and Pregnant: The Supreme Court and the War on Women

There really is a war on women, and recently the U.S. Supreme Court has made the conduct of that war even easier. Due to majority decisions by this court, women are now more vulnerable in their physical persons and in their ability to plan their economic lives.

This is a war because war involves both physical injury as well as economic deprivation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I respectfully disagree with the Reverend's perspective here. This is not at all about access to birth control; it is a question of who pays for it.

I do not know if she has priced birth control recently. However, the monthly cost of birth control in this country, if one is using a generic birth control pill, is not that expensive at all. As reported at womenshealthmag.com:

ou scour supermarkets for the cheapest shampoo and the best deal on laundry detergent, so why shouldn’t you look for a bargain when filling your prescription? Call around and research your pill online to price your drug at the big pharmacies. Bonus: Walgreens, Walmart, CVS, and most of the others have prescription savings clubs. You can get a 90-day supply of the drug for $12 on some of the plans.

That comes out to less than 14 cents per day; not a huge expenditure.

Russia approves creation of BRICS foreign exchange fund

The Russian Government signed a draft agreement on the creation of a $100 billion pool of currency reserves that the BRICS countries are forming to guard against financial shocks. According to the document, the countries’ dollar reserves will remain on the balance sheets of their central banks. However, these reserves can be made available at the request of one of the parties.

Why Is Obama Encouraging Illegal Immigration When We Can’t Take Care Of Millions Of Our Own Citizens?

It isn't an accident that our southern border is literally being flooded with illegal immigrants right now. Newspapers in El Salvador and Honduras have been publicizing how easy illegal immigration has become, and even the President of Honduras has said that people are coming to the United States for "Obama's amnesty".

When they arrive, thousands upon thousands of these illegal immigrants are using rehearsed answers that border patrol agents are hearing over and over again. Word has spread that if illegal immigrants claim that they are "fleeing gang violence" that it is more likely that they will be allowed to stay.

What we are witnessing down on the southern border is really unprecedented. It has been estimated that twelve times as many kids are crossing our borders illegally now compared to just a few years ago.

And they just keep on coming.

This is utter madness.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And what is Obama's true "intention" here?

My cynical guess is that this policy has three purposes.

First, to flood the marketplace with ultra-cheap labor, which large corporations, to whom Obama is beholden, love.

Secondly, to create generations of Democratic voters (if elections last much longer in this country)to give a party which has completely deserted and abandoned its alleged core principals, the edge in national elections.

Thirdly, to create a wellspring of revolt among Americans who are legally here, and/or born here, and desperate for some job, any job at all.

Nation-wide riots against illegal immigration would give Obama the excuse for suspending the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and instituting martial law, an action which he would just love to do.

His intention is crystal clear here.

US News: Hillary Clinton has raised over $1 billion from Wall Street

US News thinks that Hillary Clinton’s formidable fundraising ability is a giant advantage, and there is no doubt that it is. But it is also a liability. Ms. Clinton has raised over $1 billion from the #BailoutBanks over the last 2 decades. A key benefactor right now (also Obama’s in 2008) is Goldman Sachs, king of the #BailoutBanks.

But the money equation may be starting to change a bit. If voters percieve that a candidate is bought – and this is much easier to see with the Internet – they may actually make a candidate pay. Such was the case in Virginia last month. One of the things that knocked off Eric Cantor a month ago was a feeling that the powerful legislator was a representative of Wall Street. The Majority Leader lost even though he out raised his challenger in the primary 10 to 1. That’s not supposed to happen. The cronies count it not happening.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The problem with the way the political system functions in the US at this point in time, is that by the time candidates are vetted for national office by the major corporations, they are owned by those same corporations.

This is why legislation is generally great for corporations, but lousy for We the People.

Obamacare faces another court threat — and this one could be fatal

The threats to Obamacare just keep on coming……

A case before the U.S. Court of Appeals in the District of Columbia may determine the Affordable Care Act was written in such a way that it prevents the federal government’s HealthCare.gov web site from offering subsidies.

Now such a ruling would have a long way to go before it actually would become enacted — and a lot of legal hoops would have to be jumped through — but such a finding could be a show-stopper for Obamacare. More than 5 million of the 8 million who signed up for Obamacare through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ web site would thus not be eligible for tax credits. Most, presumably, would fall off the rolls of the insured.

SOURCE: Feds to Bring in Riot Squad Against Illegal Immigration Protesters

As illegal immigrants continue to spill across the U.S.-Mexico border, federal authorities are attempting to relocate the migrants from South Texas to housing facilities in states across the nation. One such facility is located in Murrieta, California, where a large group of protesters recently blocked a bus full of migrants from arriving. The protesters remain there, adamant that illegal immigrants don't get dumped in their town. But soon the concerned citizens may be forced to step down--Breitbart Texas has learned that federal agents plan to arrive in Murrieta on Monday with riot gear to ensure that another busload makes it to the housing facility.

Jeremy Oliver, a resident of Temecula, California--a town that neighbors Murrieta--told Breitbart Texas that local police officers warned the protesters that "it's going to get ugly."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If this report is, in fact, true, we may well see the maiming and killing of legal Americans protesting illegal immigrants being relocated into this country; many of these people are bringing with them disease (infectious TB and scabies,to name a few); drug connections, and/or a criminal past.

Is the Federal Government actually hoping to provoke a riot here, by taking these actions?!? I really have to shake my head and wonder.

The Superpower and the Caliphate

The jihadist die is cast, a point of no return for the U.S. strategy of projecting imperial power in the region through armed Islamic fundamentalist surrogates. The international jihadist network, which did not exist before the CIA, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan created it to undermine the leftist secular government of Afghanistan in mid-1979, has become a movement that can no longer be controlled. The physical contours of the ISIS caliphate, the movement’s dynamic new focal point, may prove indefensible, especially if the Americans decide they cannot avoid an all-out assault on their former asset. But, whatever the U.S. military response, the game plan that was hatched in 2011 for Libya, Syria, Iraq – for the whole region – is kaput, based as it is on the reliable deployment of jihadists as surrogates for NATO and Arab royals. Worse, the Arab oil potentates understand full well that their own regimes are now in grave danger from the indigenous monstrosity they have created.

Bolivia Passes Law To Allow 10-Year-Olds To Work

Bolivia's Congress has passed legislation to allow children as young age 10 to work as long as it does not interfere with their education and is done independently to help the child's family make ends meet.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"....as long as it does not interfere with their education", MY ASTROLABE!!

A 10 year old kid who is doing hard physical labor will be exhausted by the time they get to school, may not be able to pay attention in class, and may well get thrown out of school, because they cannot focus, and are irritable.

But hey, Bolivian corporations got precisely what they wanted from this bill, and will be doing the happy dance henceforward; child labor is back, baby!! And back with a vengeance in Bolivia.

Water being auctioned for millions of dollars in California as drought reaches extremes

As the water shortage crisis in California rises to a boil, desperate farmers are coming forward to bid on the remaining steam. The Central Valley in California is indeed drying up, but private landowners who still have leftover water reserves on their property are now looking to cash in.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It was just announced that contrary to the dire warnings of the Carbonazis, the water level in the Great Lakes is rising quite rapidly, so all we need to do is send that water out west using the vast irrigation system built to send water to those western desert regions ... oh ... wait... that's right; The federal Government has allowed that system to rot to the point of collapse.

But rest assured, the blame for the drought will be put on human-caused global warming!

William Rivers Pitt | Land of the Free, Unless You're a Woman

The decision in the Hobby Lobby case is many things. It is the continued elevation of Christianity over all other religions, and over the choice to hold no religion, in a country where no single religion is supposed to hold sway. It is yet another flat declaration that corporations have more rights than people. It is a purely political action to strike a blow against the Affordable Care Act, the right's most beloved boogeyman. It is a very sneaky back door through which alleged "people of faith" can peddle their onging discrimination against LGBT employees.

And, of course, it is simple, old-fashioned woman-hating from top to bottom.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is absurd!

Nobody has told these women they cannot use birth control. Nobody has told these women they may not have abortions.

The only question is who is going to pay for the consequences of lifestyle decisions these women make, and to hear them scream "You HATE us if you won't give it to us for free" makes these women come across as spoiled little children throwing tantrums!

Let's look at it another way. Sex is a life choice, something people do for fun just like smoking or drinking.

Should your employer or the government pay for your scotch and Marlboros? Of course not. People who choose to smoke and drink and have sex are free to do those things, and pay for them. Nobody demands the government buy them scotch. Nobody demands government should buy them cigars. And it is equally silly to demand government pay for birth control or abortions.

NYPD brutally arrest man on subway 'for sleeping on way from work' (VIDEO)

A video has recorded a violent altercation erupting between a man on a New York City subway and police officers, who apparently arrested him for the crime of nodding off while commuting home for work.

The incident occurs at the 57th street station stop in Manhattan in a mostly-empty carriage.

The video posted to YouTube on Tuesday does not show what sparked the police confrontation, though from the man’s reaction and those who viewed and filmed the scene, he was confronted by police for sleeping on the train.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So THIS is how NYPD is interpreting "to protect and serve"?!?

And sleeping on public transport is now a crime?!?

Why America is NOT the greatest country in the world, anymore

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For some reason, YouTube has disabled embedding on almost all versions of this wonderful clip from HBO's "The Newsroom." The reason I wanted to hunt this down is that earlier today FOX News asked people to tweet "What Makes You Proud to be an American" using #proudamerican with the promise that the best comments will be aired during the Friday orgy of self-delusion that we have anything to be proud of. My tweet as to what makes me proud is "Standing up too a government and media trying to lie us into more wars" but somehow I don;t expect that to make the cut. But this whole exercise in gratuitous self-aggrandizement as a national sport reminded me very much of this clip from "The Newsroom."

How To Detect Blue Pill People And Their Peculiar Habits

The red pill and its opposite, the blue pill, are pop culture symbols representing the choices between people embracing the sometimes painful truth of reality (red pill) or continuing to exist in the ignorance of illusion (blue pill). The terms, popularized in science fiction culture, derive from the 1999 film ‘The Matrix’. In this article we will examine six phenomena where the people clearly shy away from the color red. They shall henceforth be known as blue pill people.

All but four nations are subject to NSA surveillance – new Snowden leak

Previously undisclosed files leaked to the media by former intelligence contractor Edward Snowden now show that the United States National Security Agency has been authorized to spy on persons in all but four countries.

One former senior defense official who spoke to the journalists on condition of anonymity said that the broad authority is allowed so that the US government is able to assess any developing situations around the world at the drop of a hat.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Kurds to vote on independence from Iraq in months, leader says

Iraq’s Kurds will hold an independence referendum within months, their leader Massud Barzani said on Tuesday, as the region reels under a brutal offensive by Sunni jihadists who have declared an Islamic caliphate.

Barzani said the time was right for a vote as Iraq was already effectively partitioned following the lightning gains by the self-proclaimed Islamic State (IS), formerly known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).

“We will hold a referendum in Kurdistan and we will respect and be bound by the decision of our people and hope that others will do likewise,” he told the BBC.

Government Stops Glenn Greenwald from Publishing His Big Snowden Revelation … But Others Will Release ALL of the Snowden Documents to Prevent a War

A month ago, Glenn Greenwald announced that he was going to publish his biggest story yet: the names of those the NSA has been spying on.

Earlier today, Greenwald tweeted that he would finally publish the story tonight at midnight.

8 hours later, he tweeted:

After 3 months working on our story, USG [the United States government] today suddenly began making new last-minute claims which we intend to investigate before publishing

Many responded that it’s a trap, and that the government is dishonestly and illegally censoring Greewald.

At the same time, Cryptome announced that all of the Snowden documents will be released in July … supposedly in order to avert a war.

“July is when war begins unless headed off by Snowden full release of crippling intel. After war begins not a chance of release,” Cryptome tweeted on its official feed. “Warmongerers are on a rampage. So, yes, citizens holding Snowden docs will do the right thing,” it said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The wait on the release of these documents is making me very nervous.

Cornered animals - and governments - are both very dangerous.

And if in fact the US government has a good sense of precisely what is in these documents, what will prevent them from going to war sooner than the July 18th-21st window?!?!?

The short answer, unfortunately, is...not much.

17 Facts That Prove That The Quality Of Jobs In America Is Going Down The Drain

Do you wish that you had a better job? If so, you are not alone. In fact, there are millions upon millions of Americans that get up every day and go to a job that they wish that they could afford to quit. Unfortunately, most Americans end up just desperately holding on to the jobs that they have because just about any job is valuable in this economic environment. Over the past decade, the long-term trends that are destroying jobs in America have accelerated. We have seen countless numbers of jobs shipped overseas, we have seen countless numbers of jobs replaced by technology, we have seen countless numbers of jobs taken by immigrants and we have seen countless numbers of jobs lost to the overall decline of the once great U.S. economy. Unfortunately, even though we can all see this happening, our “leaders” have failed to come up with any solutions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OF COURSE, government is not going to come up with any meaningful solutions, because their election cycles are financed, overtly and covertly, by the large corporations which make money by outsourcing, off-shoring, and hiring cheap (and many times, illegal) labor!!!!

There is utterly no representation of We the People anymore; just representation of the large corporations the money from which can steer elections to their liking, because they know precisely what the quid pro quo will be.

The European Union prepares the ‘solidarity clause’ framework for military use against citizens

The use of the “European Gendarmerie Force” (EUROGENDFOR) is made ??possible by the “solidarity clause” as Heise reported. At the unit, headquartered in Vicenza, Italy, all EU Member States are involved, the Gendarmerien, so police forces with military status are used. One of the founding countries of the EUROGENDFOR include Portugal, Spain, Italy, France and the Netherlands. We provide our services to the police unit of the EU, NATO or the UN.

“The ‘solidarity clause’ is redundant, since the EU already has mechanisms for mutual assistance in case of disasters. Secondly, the clause amplifies the course to a militarization of domestic politics, since upon request military can be used in another Member State.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If I were a citizen of any EU country where these laws apply, I would be contemplating a very quick migration elsewhere, particularly if I had children and skills.

Dictatorship arrives softly, generally in small, stealthy increments, before you even know it is there. And by the time you realize what has happened, it is too late to change things, or to run.

Carlyle Group’s Latest Acquisition: the JFK Library (!)

Some things you truly cannot make up. Like this: the museum and archives celebrating and exploring the life (if not really wanting to investigate the death) of John F. Kennedy is getting a facelift—courtesy of…the Carlyle Group.

This development was noted, without much fanfare, in a variety of major media. If there was a smidgen of irony, I missed it.

Yet, consider this: The ultimate globe-girdling corporation is playing a major role in preserving the memory of a president who at the time of his death was engaged in what may be described as mortal combat with outfits not unlike Carlyle—if smaller and less global.

Attorney General Eric Holder Paid No Attention to Bank Fraud: “Wall Street Wasn’t Even On His Radar”

Attorney General Eric Holder’s statements that prosecuting Wall Street fraud would hurt the economy is exactly backwards: the experts say that failing to prosecute fraud is dooming our economy.

But prosecuting fraud was never on Holder’s radar.

In reality, Holder laid the groundwork for the “too big to jail” approach in 1999.

And Holder and his head of the Department of Justice’s Criminal Division were partners at a law firm which used to represent the big banks, Fannie and Freddie, and which wrote the legal opinion which allowed the creation of the cancerous MERS scam … which was at the heart of the foreclosure crisis.

Indeed, Wall Street was Holder’s priority … specifically, protecting Wall Street criminals and prosecuting whistleblowers.

U.S. Relies On Law from Governments Which Don’t Even HAVE a Constitution to Justify Assassination of U.S. Citizens By Drone

The Fifth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution says:

No person shall … be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law ….

So how did the legal memorandum “justifying” assassination of U.S. citizens by drone try to sidestep the Fifth Amendment?

It relied on reasoning from two countries that don’t have any constitution.

The New York Times reports:

One might have expected a thoughtful memo that carefully weighed the pros and cons and discussed how such a strike accords with international and Constitutional law.

Instead, the memo turns out to be a slapdash pastiche of legal theories — some based on obscure interpretations of British and Israeli law — that was clearly tailored to the desired result. Perhaps the administration held out so long to avoid exposing the thin foundation on which it based such a momentous decision.

Neither England nor Israel have a constitution.

Something completely out of the ordinary happened in Spain this week: a politician resigned. His name is Willy Meyer and he was, until Wednesday morning at least, a Member of the European Parliament (MEP) and European Parliamentary leader for Spain’s ostensibly far-left party “Izquierda Union.”

The reason for Meyer’s resignation is that he was caught funneling his parliamentary pension contributions into an EU-sponsored investment fund commonly referred to as a SICAV (standing for Société d’Investissement à Capital Variable) – an investment vehicle that Meyer’s own party has long pledged to ban.

Hobby Lobby stunner: Supreme Court issues long-awaited ruling in birth-control dispute

The government cannot require closely held corporations to insure birth control in company health plans if it violates their religious beliefs, a divided Supreme Court ruled Thursday.

The 5-to-4 decision in the “Hobby Lobby” case is a political blow to the Obama administration, which had allowed nonprofit groups to avoid direct responsibility for Obamacare’s contraception mandate but held firm against for-profit owners who complained and filed suit.

11 Shocking Facts About America's Militarized Police Forces

In June, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) brought more attention to police militarization when it issued a comprehensive, nearly 100-page (appendix and endnotes included) report titled, “War Comes Home: The Excessive Militarization of American Policing.” Based on public records requests to more than 260 law enforcement agencies in 26 states, the ACLU concluded that “American policing has become excessively militarized through the use of weapons and tactics designed for the battlefield” and that this militarization “unfairly impacts people of color and undermines individual liberties, and it has been allowed to happen in the absence of any meaningful public discussion.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We are very lucky here in Hawaii that we do not have a lot of this kind of behaviour on the part of the police; not that it absolutely doesn't happen, but it is far rarer than for people on the mainland.

But the other aspect of the militarization of the police this article doesn't address is the training of the US police by Israel's IDF, which makes US police view American citizens very much the way the IDF views - and treats - Palestinians.

50 VA hospital workers claim retaliation for blowing whistle on the horrors they saw

When Valerie Riviello, a nurse at a Veterans Affairs facility in New York, saw the clinic restrain a sexual assault survivor to a bed for seven consecutive hours, she released the woman.

The next day, Ms. Riviello said, she was removed from her post as senior nurse manager and given a full-time desk job that prohibited her from contact with patients. She eventually was reprimanded and is facing a 30-day unpaid suspension for releasing the woman.

Now, Ms. Riviello is one of more than 50 whistleblowers who say the Veterans Affairs Department retaliated against them for trying to do their jobs.

After Losing Vote, US-EU Threaten to Undermine Treaty

The United States and the 28-member European Union (EU) have assiduously promoted – and vigourously preached – one of the basic tenets of Western multi-party democracy: majority rules.

But at the United Nations, the 29 member states have frequently abandoned that principle when it insists on “consensus” on crucial decisions relating to the U.N. budget – or when it is clearly outvoted in the 193-member General Assembly or its committee rooms.

That’s exactly what happened Thursday at the U.N. Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in Geneva which adopted, by majority vote, a proposal to negotiate a legally-binding treaty to prevent human rights abuses by transnational corporations (TNCs) and the world’s business conglomerates.

But following the vote, the United States and the EU, have warned they would not cooperate with an intergovernmental working group (IGWG) which is to be established to lay down ground rules for negotiating the proposed treaty.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Now let me get this straight; for the US and EU, human rights abuses are just PEACHY when practiced by transnational corporates and conglomerates?!?

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable.

Martin Armstrong Warns Civil Unrest Is Rising Everywhere: "This Won't End Pretty"

The greatest problem we have is misinformation. People simply do not comprehend why and how the economic policies of the post-war era are imploding. This whole agenda of socialism has sold a Utopian idea that the State is there for the people yet it is run by lawyers following their own self-interest. The pensions created for those in government drive the cost of government up exponentially with time. The political forces blame the rich and this merely creates a class warfare with no resolution for the future. Even confiscating all the wealth of the so-called rich will not sustain the system. Consequently, we just have to crash and burn and start all over again.

Obama keeps heat on Republican critics: ‘Even basic common sense ideas can’t get through this Congress’

President Barack Obama used a campaign-style speech in the American heartland Friday to blast his Republican opponents as feckless obstructionists in Congress, saying Washington’s current gridlock “drives me nuts.”

Republicans have become so obsessed with blocking the Democratic president’s every move that he has been forced to use his executive authority to advance priorities like pay fairness, Obama said, dismissing as a stunt a threatened Republican lawsuit against him.

The White House and Republican congressional leaders, notably House Speaker John Boehner, have sparred repeatedly over Obama’s use of executive orders, with Boehner warning this week that Americans “didn’t elect a monarch or king.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, the only thing this man can do extraordinarily well (assuming the teleprompter is in front of him) - is campaign.

In terms of actually thinking things through to their rational conclusion, the man, and the administration which surrounds him, is absolutely, hopelessly, pathologically incapable of indulging in this discipline.

This is why, under his watch, you had APgate; Bengazhigate;, IRSgate; VAgate; a total security melt-down in Iraq; sponsoring a badly considered putsch in Ukraine, which may have enormous geopolitical consequences with Russia; NSAgate, and Obamacaregate.

And I would be very cautious, were I President Obama, to dismiss Boehner's threat to sue.

And Mr. President, if you want to lift up the middle class, bring back the jobs which used to be the underpinning of a functioning, prosperous middle class in this country.

But you won't, will you, because the large corporations which have supported you want the labor done more cheaply in other countries!!

And your Republican colleagues are just as happy to take the money and not look at the consequences when there are no decent jobs for Americans because it's what their corporate overlords want.

The truth of the business is that Americans understand that they are no longer represented by any part of the American government; it is the corporations, which fund election cycles, which get represented, period, end of discussion.

And because of that understanding, neither party now has any credibility with the American people, whatsoever.

It should be an interesting November election.

‘Sneak & peek’ warrants allow police to secretly enter homes without notice

A little-known police tactic allows cops to covertly enter private residences, perform searches, seize property, and then leave quietly without notifying the homeowner. These searches, affectionately known as “sneak and peek” warrants, have been performed at a rapidly rising rate since 9/11.
Covert Tactics

Sneak and Peek warrants in actuality a more extreme version of the over-used “no-knock” raids that we cover so often. After seeking out a judge’s authorization, police are allowed to secretly break into private property without first announcing themselves or presenting the subject of the search with a signed warrant. Using this variety of warrant, officers intentionally wait until the subject is not present. The operations are performed covertly, and with the intention of masking the fact that any police activity took place.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ever noticed that since 9/11, police departments across the country have backslid to an unofficial Code Napoleon view of American law, in which the suspect is considered guilty until they are proven innocent?!?

This is absolutely the polar opposite of what the Constitution and Bill of Rights are allegedly supposed to afford American citizens!

U.S. Says It Spied on 89,000 Targets Last Year, But the Number Is Deceptive

About 89,000 foreigners or organizations were targeted for spying under a U.S. surveillance order last year, according to a new transparency report. The report was released for the first time Friday by the Office of the Director of Intelligence, upon order of the president, in the wake of surveillance leaks by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden.

But the report, which covers only surveillance orders issued in 2013, doesn’t tell the whole story about how many individuals the spying targeted or how many Americans were caught in the surveillance that targeted foreigners. Civil liberties groups say the real number is likely “orders of magnitude” larger than this.

“Even if it was an honest definition of ‘target’—that is, an individual instead of a group—that also is not encompassing those who are ancillary to a target and are caught up in the dragnet,” says Kurt Opsahl, deputy general counsel of the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Now, let me see: who is the US government going to consider "foreign nationals" with whom we are in regular contact?!?

Oh, I know: many of the sisters and one priest at the Catholic church which coordinates with my Methodist church to create a food distribution program, both for state-declared food insecure kids and insecure adults and family, are from India!!

And even though these beautiful souls work tirelessly to create a little better quality of life for those less fortunate, and do their best to do the work followers of Christ believe that they should do, I would not bet against these people surveilled, simply because they ARE from a foreign country.

And here is where the surveillance program, in and of itself, becomes... like a metastasizing cancer, completely out of control.

These people are pacifists, who would never, EVER advocate harm to ANYONE. To be surveilling them would be an amazingly stupid waste of taxpayer money, and personnel.

But again, given the paranoia of the current government, I wouldn't put odds against them being surveilled.

Swine Flu Confirmed at Shelter for Unaccompanied Minors

An unaccompanied minor from Central America who entered the U.S. illegally has been confirmed as having the Swine Flu, also known as the H1N1 flu.

A spokesperson from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services confirmed that the sick child is at the Lackland Air Force base in San Antonio, according to KRGV. 2,000 H1N1 vaccinations are being brought to the air base, where more than 1,000 illegal immigrant minors are currently staying.

Congressman Louie Gohmert told Breitbart Texas that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services--the agency currently caring for many of the unaccompanied minors--is not doing an adequate job of screening and treating diseases.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

so, let me get this straight.

The current administration has, overtly, and covertly, encouraged illegal immigrant minors to come to the US. In fact, the federal register was advertising for people to accompany them into the US.

If you think this sudden flood of illegal immigrant children is spontaneous, think again. According to a “help wanted” Request For Information (RFI) posted on FedBizOpps.gov, the feds were looking for vendors to help escort unaccompanied alien children (UAC) in JANUARY of this year. The specific vendor requirements state: ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] is seeking the services of a responsible vendor that shares the philosophy of treating all UAC with dignity and respect, while adhering to standard operating procedures and policies that allow for an effective, efficient, and incident free transport. The Contractor shall provide unarmed escort staff, including management, supervision, manpower, training, certifications, licenses, drug testing, equipment, and supplies necessary to provide on-demand escort services for non-criminal/non-delinquent unaccompanied alien children ages infant to 17 years of age, seven (7) days a week, 365 days a year. Transport will be required for either category of UAC or individual juveniles, to include both male and female juveniles. There will be approximately 65,000 UAC in total: 25% local ground transport, 25% via ICE charter and 50% via commercial air.

This country is trillions of dollars in debt, and cannot take care of our Vets, many of whom are dying because of a deliberate lack of health care, and sleeping in our streets.

Many of these kids are coming in with illnesses far worse than this flu; some have a very agressive form of tuberculosis. HHS is doing a lousy job of inspecting, and treating these kids.

So the question is, why would the Federal government invite a groundswell of kids who cannot work,will cost billions to care for and educate?!?

The answer is three-fold, and amazingly cynical.

The Federal government wants to force the immigration reform issue on Congress, and create generations of people who will be Democratic voters for life.

Secondly, illegal labor always drives down wages, which is precisely what big corporations love to see happen.

Third: given that many of these 14 to 17 year old boys are being housed on reactivated army bases, Obama may be creating a clandestine, domestic army, one that will not hesitate to shoot real Americans during domestic unrest or gun seizures.

US now wrestling with intelligence gaps in Iraq

CIA officers in Iraq have largely stayed in their heavily fortified Baghdad compound since U.S. troops left the country in 2011, current and former officials say, allowing a once-rich network of intelligence sources to wither.

That is a major reason, they say, why the U.S. was surprised by the recent offensive by the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS), which has seized a large portion of Iraq.

“This is a glaring example of the erosion of our street craft and our tradecraft and our capability to operate in a hard place,” said John Maguire, who helped run CIA operations in Iraq in 2004. “The U.S. taxpayer is not getting their money’s worth.”

Commentary on the Bill of Rights.

As the United States government continues its war against the nation created in 1779, it has become all too obvious that many Americans, although they will talk about the Bill of Rights, remain unclear as to what it says and what it means. Partly that is due to endless government and corporate media spin, and partly because the language spoken in this nation has changed so much from the time of the writing of the Constitution to the present day, that many people are confused as to what was actually intended. On the occasion of the New York Times publishing an op-ed calling for the abandonment of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, I offer some clarification.

Crash captain left helm for ‘drunken 3-way sex romp’

A fishing boat smashed head on into runway approach lights at La?Guardia Airport early Sunday after the vessel’s drunken captain deserted the helm for a three-way sex romp — exposing a stunning security weakness, sources told The Post.

Police were unable to reach the boat to determine whether it was a threat for about 30 minutes, even though a Port Authority police vessel was tied up at a nearby dock.

There was no crew available to operate it because, in a money-saving move, the PA had decided to operate its navy only during daylight hours.

The PA Police Department finally had to call for help from the NYPD’s Harbor Unit.

Feds Spent $4.8 Billion on Obamacare Exchanges So Far

The federal government has spent nearly $5 billion to establish federal and state exchanges for Obamacare, according to a report by the Congressional Research Service (CRS).

The funding was provided by a section of the Affordable Care Act that allowed for “indefinite” funding at the discretion of the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS).

“The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is incurring significant administrative costs to support [federally-facilitated exchanges] FFE operations,” the report, which was released earlier this month, said.

168 children rescued, 281 pimps arrested in mass sex-trafficking sting

A week-long operation across the US against child sex trafficking has resulted in the rescue of almost 170 children and the arrest of 281 pimps, according to the FBI.

The law enforcement operation represents the latest effort on behalf of the FBI’s Innocence Lost program, which since its 2003 creation has resulted in the recovery of some 3,600 children who faced sexual exploitation. In addition to arrests and child recoveries operations have resulted in 1,450 criminal convictions, 14 life in prison terms and the seizure of over $3.1 million.

U.S. Archivist David Ferriero: the IRS “did not follow the law”

Rep. Trey Gowdy hammered IRS Commissioner John Koskinen when he said that he found the IRS of no wrong doing. Gowdy pressed Koskinen on how he knows there was no criminal wrongdoing when he hasn’t looked at criminal statutes.

Gowdy blasted Koskinen and shouted, “You don’t have any idea of criminal wrongdoing or not!”

Gowdy, a former persecutor, told Koskinen that there is a “negative inference” because of the inability of the IRS to retrieve the Lerner emails that the IRS claim were destroyed.

It turns out though the IRS did break the law according to U.S. Archivist David Ferriero.

According to FreeBeacon.com, U.S. Archivist David Ferriero of the National Archives and Records Administration told Rep. Tim Walberg (R., Mich.) that the IRS “did not follow the law” when they failed to notify his administration that they had lost Lois Lerner’s email records.

So That’s Why They Kept the Drone Kill Memo Secret

In the end, the memo admits that calling something a war isn’t good enough; the targeted victim has to have been an imminent threat to the United States. But who gets to decide whether he or she was that? Why, whoever does the killing of course. And what happens if nobody ever even makes an unsupported assertion to that effect? Nothing, of course.

This is not the rule of law. This is savage brute force in minimal disguise. I don’t want to see any more of these memos. I want to see the video footage of the drone murders on a television. I want to see law professors and revolving-door State Department / human rights group hacks argue that dead children fall under the public authority justification.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These extrajudicial assassinations are both illegal, and immoral; it is interesting to consider that this method of murder is one of President Obama's absolute favorite way of doing away with someone who, in the President's view, desperately need to be "neutralized"

US Funds "Terror Studies" to Dissect and Neutralize Social Movements

Since the meltdown of 2008, U.S. universities have collaborated with the Pentagon to study dynamics of social movements, worldwide. The goal of “terrorism studies” is “to find possible vectors of resistance, which are to be identified and eradicated, like a disease.” The Minerva Initiative, like NSA spying, sees the entire planet as “enemy territory.”

The U.S. Department of Defense is immersed in studies about...people like you. The Pentagon wants to know why folks who don’t themselves engage in violence to overthrow the prevailing order become, what the military calls, “supporters of political violence.” And by that they mean, everyone who opposes U.S military policy in the world, or the repressive policies of U.S. allies and proxies, or who opposes the racially repressive U.S. criminal justice system, or who wants to push the One Percent off their economic and political pedestals so they can’t lord it over the rest of us. (I’m sure you recognize yourself somewhere in that list.)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a Christian Pacifist who never advocates violence, abhors the use of war as a means to settle geopolitical disputes, but does advocate logic, reason, and compassion in both this country's domestic and foreign policies, how in heaven's name could I possibly be characterized as a threat?!?

Am I "dissatisfied" with the status quo in this country? You can bet on that. But would I ever indulge in violence to change it?

The short answer is, never.

But the late President Kennedy said it best: "when peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution is inevitable".

IF the Minerva Research Initiative wants to do something constructive, it has to figure out how money is available to all strata of society, and not just to the money junkies.

Gallup Poll Finds Confidence in Congress Lowest of Any Institution Ever

By now, you’d think the lack of confidence in Congress had hit an irreducible minimum. In 2013, a Gallup survey showed that only 10% of Americans had “a great deal” or “a lot” of confidence in the national legislature. But no, that apparently wasn’t as low as you can go.

Gallup’s latest survey shows that only 7% of Americans have confidence in Congress. That’s not just the lowest number since Gallup began asking that question in 1973, but the lowest confidence figure for any institution about which it has polled.

Nearly Half Of Detroit Water Customers Can’t Pay Their Bill

It’s a basic human right: water. But could the United Nations soon help the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department provide the service to struggling customers?

Water department spokeswoman Curtrise Garner says it’s a possibility — but for now, the water bills must be paid.

“We do have programs that do help those that are just totally in need; can’t afford it — but we also know that there are also people who can’t afford it would can not pay and we know this because, once we shut water off, the next day they are in paying the bill in full. So we do know that that has become a habit as well,” said Garner.

“At the DWAS Department — it’s not our goal to shut off water. We want people’s water on, just like they do; but you do have to pay for your water…That’s the bottom line.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wonder just how long this will go on before there will be a massive water-related health epidemic here, or before there will be massive riots in the city of Detroit.

s the U.S. on the way to becoming a failed state?

Losing control of borders is one of the primary characteristics of failed states.

See the Wikipedia page for failed states and compare the following criteria to what’s happening in the U.S. right now:

Mounting Demographic Pressures [Yes]
Massive Movement of Refugees or Internally Displaced Persons [Yes]
Vengeance Seeking Group Grievance
Chronic and Sustained Human Flight
Uneven Economic Development [Yes]
Poverty, Sharp or Severe Economic Decline [Yes]
Legitimacy of the State
Progressive Deterioration of Public Services [Yes]
Violation of Human Rights and Rule of Law [Yes]
Security Apparatus [Yes]
Rise of Factionalized Elites [Yes]

Of course, the U.S. isn’t considered a failed state. Yet. I’d suggest that you will want to be far away if it actually gets to that point.

Sonasoft Software Licenses and Software Maintenance Support

Synopsis:
Added: Sep 12, 2008 1:01 pm
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) intends to award a sole source purchase order to Sonasoft Corporation, for the purchase of the software licenses related to Exchange Disaster Recovery capabilities. These items and services have been determined to meet the definition of commercial items in accordance with Part 2.101 of the Federal Acquisition Regulation.

The IRS has a need for the following items:

CLIN 0001 – Sonasafe Application, Item Number SC, Quantity 4

CLIN 0002 – Exchange Standby License, Item Number SC-B, Quantity 4

CLIN 0003 – Exchange Agent, Item Number SE, Quantity 8

CLIN 0004 – Exchange Standby Agent, Item Number SE-S, Quantity 8

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This page at fbo.gov shows the renewal of services and licenses from Sonasoft for the IRS. Note that some of the products interface with Microsoft Exchange Server. This means that Lois Lerner's (and the other six IRS officials) emails did not reside solely on her local hard drive, but were archived by the built-in system of exchange as well as the added products from Sonasoft.

FOURTH TURNING ACCELERATING

This past week saw an event revealing the cluelessness and ignorance of the linear thinking establishment. They are oblivious to the cyclicality of history and unaware of their precarious situation, as the mood of the country and the world portends their demise. Eric Cantor, the ultimate establishment neo-con Republican House Majority Leader, was crushed in a primary by a completely unknown economics professor, outspent by Cantor $4.9 million to $123,000. Cantor spent more at steakhouses than David Brat spent on his entire campaign. Cantor, a lackey for Blackstone, Goldman Sachs, Israel, and dozens of other mega-corporations, was the first House Majority leader defeated in a primary since the position was created in the 1890s. He won his last primary by 60%.

Military Blimps Will Float In Aberdeen, Tracking Potential Threats

Soon, Maryland will be the home to a couple of new landmarks. Actually, sky-marks.

As Mike Schuh reports, two large blimps will soon rise over Harford County and stay put.

Radar blimps like these have been used on the battlefield to track the enemy, and in the Caribbean to intercept drug runners.

Testing in Utah is complete. Now they’re being packed up and sent to Maryland.

“There is some equipment already on grounds, yes,” said Kelly Luster, a spokesman for Aberdeen Proving Ground.

What will they be looking for? Anti-ship cruise missiles, unmanned aircraft and swarming boats.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh, REALLY?!?

In and around Aberdeen Maryland?!?!?

I would rather suggest that these blimps are being used to "condition" Americans to the presence of surveillance in the skies, and that in the future, blimps and/or drones will be outfitted with cameras, and various kinds of arms, both less than lethal - and lethal.

This drone shoots crowds with pepper spray paintballs: Skunk Riot Control Copter will be deployed to South African mines

Crowds of protesters could soon come under attack from riot control drones outfitted with paintball guns, strobe lights, and speakers. The Skunk Riot Control Copter, built by South African company Desert Wolf, has a suite of cameras and four paintball guns strapped to its chassis to help its operators monitor and control unruly crowds. The guns can fire ammunition from four different hoppers, meaning the drone operators can shoot protesters with dye markers, solid plastic pellets, or small capsules of pepper spray.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Watch for major corporations in the US with labor issues buy up these drones like crazy.

Because if President Obama believes that he has the legal right to kill anyone anywhere, without due process, it will be no leap of logic for him to endorse corporate extrajudicial maimings and killings.

And that horrific thumpa-thumpa-thumpa sound you are hearing is that of the late Nelson Mandela, turning over in his grave at warp speed. This was not the kind of "freedom" he envisioned for the people of South Africa.

Slave Children Used by Major Corporations to Make Chocolate

Swiss multinational Nestlé, the largest food company on the planet—and anybody who consumes their products—has a chocolate problem.

More specifically, they have a child slavery problem.

Since the late 1990s, allegations have continually surfaced that the company benefits from slave children in its supply chain, and that slave children are used in its cocoa production in West Africa.

The allegations—including reports from UNICEF and the US State Department—brought enough attention and heat, including coverage from the BBC, that Nestlé’s CEO Bradley Alford signed an international agreement to end cocoa child labor in 2001, but by 2005 had not met the agreement’s deadline for eliminating the worst child labor offenses from the company’s supply chain.

GM hit with $10 billion lawsuit saying recalls damaged brand

According to a complaint filed on Wednesday with the federal court in Riverside, California, GM hurt customers by concealing known defects and valuing cost-cutting over safety, leading to roughly 40 recalls covering more than 20 million vehicles this year alone.

It said this has caused a variety of late-model vehicles to lose roughly $500 to $2,600 in resale value.

Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro, which filed the lawsuit, said the case could be worth more than $10 billion, and is the first seeking to force GM to pay a potential 15 million car and truck owners, not just those whose vehicles were recalled, for damage to its brand and reputation.

U.S. captures Ahmed Abu Khatallah — suspected Benghazi ringleader — in secret raid

The United States said on Tuesday it had captured a suspected ringleader of the 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, a raid that killed four Americans including the U.S. ambassador, and ignited a political firestorm in Washington.

Rear Admiral John Kirby, the Pentagon press secretary, said U.S. military troops, working with law enforcement personnel, captured Ahmed Abu Khatallah on Sunday in Libya and were holding him at a secure location outside the country.

A U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Khatallah was being held aboard an American ship after he was grabbed on the outskirts of Benghazi in an operation carried out by U.S. special operations forces.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to the White House: distraction by misdirection is no longer working on the American people, folks.

This guy may very well wind up being some schmuck patsy, who had nothing to do with the deaths at Benghazi, but will be "persuaded" by his captors (waterboarding?!? cutting his private parts? Drugging? Sleep depriving? Stress positions? Brutally kicking and punching? All of the above, simultaneously?) to say ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING supporting the official White House narrative.

But you see, it will not work; and it will not work because this Administration has lost any small shred of credibility it might have had, and the American people no longer believe a word you say.

With IRSgate (now reaching critical mass because of the "missing" IRS emails); APgate; VAgate; Benghazigate,Ukrainegate; Obamacaregate; an economy STILL on the skids, 6 years into Obama's presidency; and the reality that the US has re-invaded Iraq as of yesterday, the track record of performance, on promises by this administration, is absolutely, breathtakingly, lousy.

The American people truly feel no longer represented by any politicians, because politicians craft legislation which is great for the corporations funding their election cycles, but is generally pretty darn rotten for We the People.

And We the People have come to understand that.

Risk of new Argentinian debt default after vulture fund verdict

President Cristina Fernandez says Argentina can’t possibly comply with U.S. court orders to pay $1.5 billion in cash to winners of a decade-long debt dispute, the position her country was left in Monday when the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear her government’s final appeal.

Delivering a nationally broadcast address Monday night, Fernandez expressed willingness to negotiate, but said there is simply no way that Argentina can pay in cash, in full, starting just two weeks from now, which is what the U.S. courts have ordered.

“What I cannot do as president is submit the country to such extortion,” Fernandez said.

Under the U.S. court orders, Argentina must hand over $907 million to the plaintiffs, or lose the ability to use the U.S. financial system to pay an equal amount due June 30 to holders of other Argentine bonds.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This decision may well plunge the Argentinian economy into complete chaos.

South Dakota has Raked in $100 Million in Homeland Security Grants Despite No Known Terrorist Threats…Ever

South Dakota, which has only 800,000 residents, has received $100 million in grants from the Department of Homeland Security since 2003. This largesse has been bestowed on a state with no known terrorist threats, now or ever.

Money has gone towards purchasing firefighting equipment and police surveillance technology, as well as software to protect against cyber attacks, and more.

Some of it was even spent to prepare for roadside bombs—the kind deployed against American soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq that have never been used in South Dakota or any other U.S. state.

The only potential threats facing South Dakota, according to a state strategic plan, come from white supremacist groups and environmentalists opposed to uranium mining and the Keystone XL pipeline.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

SOUTH DAKOTA?!?!?

Are you flipping kidding me?!?

And when, please God, did responsible, peaceful environmental protestors become a "threat"?

But folks, South Dakota is simply the tip of the iceberg here, in terms of the complete militarization of all local and state police.

Against what threat, please?!?

This surely means that something wicked this way comes.

Do not become violent, because a violent rebellion is precisely what these police have been trained to put down with extreme prejudice (just killing people where they stand).

Protect yourself; plan; prepare. This is the "holy Trinity" for keeping yourselves and those you love as safe and comfortable as possible if there is a period of extreme societal disruption, for whatever reason.

How The Cops Watch Your Tweets In Real-Time

A look at the BlueJay interface shows it to be a fairly basic tool, but one that gets its power from full access to the Twitter “firehose” of all tweets.

The main BlueJay interface, which is accessed through a Web browser.

BlueJay partners with firehose providers and touts this fact in its marketing copy: “BlueJay captures tweets from the entire Twitter stream, unlike all other products on the market that only get a fraction of the tweets that are being posted.” BlueJay is meant only for local monitoring of tweets, but this also keeps the price in reach of local police departments—$150 a month.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is simple: never, ever say anything on line or with your cell that you wouldn't want God and everyone to be listening to.

But this could be a very powerful took against people who are simply peace advocates, like myself or Mike, or who otherwise think for themselves.

At 65, I describe myself as a Christian pacifist, who never advocates violence, but wants to see those people in power (particularly here in the US) behaving like adults, and find other means, rather than war, through which to see their geopolitical objectives achieved, if they are for the good of We the People.

Unfortunately, most legislation coming out of both Congress and local governments are good for the corporations in this country which fund election cycles.

Intelligent bad guys may be tweeting, or communicating otherwise, but if they are smart, their equipment is already grade-A encrypted.

“Cluster Of Central Banks” Have Secretly Invested $29 Trillion In The Market

Another conspiracy “theory” becomes conspiracy “fact” as The FT reports “a cluster of central banking investors has become major players on world equity markets.” The report, to be published this week by the Official Monetary and Financial Institutions Forum (OMFIF), confirms $29.1tn in market investments, held by 400 public sector institutions in 162 countries, which “could potentially contribute to overheated asset prices.” China’s State Administration of Foreign Exchange has become “the world’s largest public sector holder of equities”, according to officials, and we suspect the Fed is close behind (courtesy of more levered positions at Citadel), as the world’s banks try to diversify themselves and “counters the monopoly power of the dollar.” Which leaves us wondering where are the central bank 13Fs?

Office of Naval Research: U.S. Marine Ground Vehicles Will Carry Lasers to Shoot Down Drones

As the Navy prepares to deploy its first laser weapon on a ship later this summer, Office of Naval Research (ONR) officials announced June 11 that they have finished awarding contracts to develop a similar weapon to be used on ground vehicles.

The Ground-Based Air Defense Directed Energy On-the-Move program, commonly referred to as GBAD, aims to provide an affordable alternative to traditional firepower to keep enemy unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) from tracking and targeting Marines on the ground.

ONR is working with Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division and industry partners on the development of GBAD’s components and subsystems, including the laser itself, beam director, batteries, radar, advanced cooling, and communications and command and control.

Russian spies use 'safe' German typewriters

President Vladimir Putin's secret service the FSO have invited for tenders for hundreds of ink and correction typewriter ribbons for the classic Triumph Adler Twen 180 and Olympia Comfort models.

Olympia, which is based in Hattingen, North Rhine-Westphalia, has also confirmed that Russian firms recently ordered 20 new, electric typewriters for at least €200 each, along with supplies of ink ribbons.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If your typewriter uses cloth ink ribbons that shuttle back and forth, those are safe. But if your typewriter uses a Mylar based ink ribbon, remember that the used ribbon carries a readable record of everything ever typed using that ribbon, and the used cartridges have to be shredded and destroyed to maintain security.

Pentagon preparing for mass civil breakdown

Last year, the DoD's Minerva Initiative funded a project to determine 'Who Does Not Become a Terrorist, and Why?' which, however, conflates peaceful activists with "supporters of political violence" who are different from terrorists only in that they do not embark on "armed militancy" themselves. The project explicitly sets out to study non-violent activists:

I contacted the project's principal investigator, Prof Maria Rasmussen of the US Naval Postgraduate School, asking why non-violent activists working for NGOs should be equated to supporters of political violence – and which "parties and NGOs" were being investigated – but received no response.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, Pentagon, let me break this down for you, gently, in small bites, so you are able to "intellectually digest" what I am telling you.

I am a Christian pacifist who would never, ever advocate violence, period, end of discussion.

How in the name of heaven you could possibly equate me with any kind of violent "terrorist", because I logically point out flaws, short-sightedness, and illogic in governmental policies, betrays a slippery slope toward a very unsound place of paranoia.

State Takeover of Family Predicted in 1928

Recent headlines have reminded us that government, when unrestrained, will reach into every aspect of our lives.

Bertrand Russell, scientists and philosopher famous for his writings on the ideal scientific society of elites, provided a little known essay for Whither Mankind. In it he re-iterates his other published works on the inevitable takeover of a scientific elite. As quoted, Russell states:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you can, please home school your kids.

If you cannot, check in with your child on a daily basis, and know how - and what - they are being taught in class, because it is very important that children understand what critical thinking is and that they have the right to their own, educated opinion, which may well not be that of the state-sponsored schools.

Children I have known who have grown up to be achievement-oriented come from families where there is a lot of both love, structure, and critical thinking.

Sorry, You're Not Allowed: Capital Segregation and Rising Inequality

Once the gains have been reaped, all that's left for the majority are toxic risk and losses.

The New Nobility don't swim in that carefully limited pool: they control the distribution of food pellets (gain and yield in our analogy) to the masses thrashing about in the main tank. Regardless of who wins and loses the struggle for the few pellets tossed in the tank, the few who control the pellets profit.

The majority swimming fruitlessly around the barren main tank are unaware of the tanks and wild river beyond. Special tanks--dark pools and similar reserved havens for the wealthy--are off-limits to the middle class in the main tank. In these "New Nobility only" pools, risk is low and gains are plentiful.

Are the Police Becoming a Domestic Military?

What do you get when you combine post-war military surplus equipment with US domestic law enforcement agencies?

I don’t know. And I’m not sure I want to.

The sheer volume of equipment coming into the country (see the wave-making New York Times article “War Gear Flows to Police Departments”) makes it look like we’re building another branch of the military—but what for? Different people have different answers, but they’ve all got one thing in common: Fear.

The rise in mass shootings has some members of the law enforcement community calling the escalation an exercise in preparedness. Some cite the threat of domestic terrorism, invoking the specter of the Boston Marathon bombings as proof enough. Other responses are simply brain-searing, like this one from the Morgan County Sherriff’s department, featured in the New York Times:

“In the Indianapolis suburbs, officers said they needed a mine-resistant vehicle to protect against a possible attack by veterans returning from war.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There has been a war against the American people - and American families - for quite some time now. This hyper-militarization of the police is a final phase in the process.

The US government is expecting unrest, both from the poorest segments of our communities, when food and money run out, and other individuals who have simply had enough of miserably ill-conceived foreign and domestic policies.

Please, no matter how much you get ticked off, do not indulge in violence: that is precisely the battle the government is prepared to put down, and mercilessly, in a homicidal rage.

Just please, be prepared. Have long-term storable food and water; extra meds for your family and your pets; have a plan, in case you need to bug out, in terms of how to reconnect with family and friends; keep no more money in your bank account than you absolutely need to pay your bills; and make sure you have some gold and silver, purchased in small, untraceable amounts. Learn which of your neighbors can be counted upon to work with you, and barter with you, if times get very rough.

‘Unprecedented’: 13 aircraft mysteriously disappear from radars in heart of Europe

A total of 13 aircraft suddenly vanished off radars for about 25 minutes on two occasions over Austria and neighboring countries, Austria's flight safety monitor said, calling for an EU probe into the “unprecedented” incidents.

The flights vanished from air traffic controllers’ screens in Austria on June 5 and June 10 for 25 minutes each time, Marcus Pohanka of Austro Control – Austria’s flight safety organization – said Thursday.

Air traffic control in neighboring regions of Germany and the Czech Republic also reported similar problems.

Pohanka said the location, height, and identity of the 13 aircraft vanished over Austria both times, in what he called “unprecedented” incidents, AP reported.

He added that some neighboring countries had experienced similar problems. The daily Kurier, based in Vienna, elaborated that similar problems were experienced by flight controllers in Munich and Karlsruhe in Germany and in Prague, Czech Republic.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Either this is the start of the "virtual 9-11" false-flag, or someone was testing a new and very effective radar jamming system!

The Government Can No Longer Track Your Cell Phone Without a Warrant

The government and police regularly use location data pulled off of cell phone towers to put criminals at the scenes of crimes—often without a warrant. Well, an appeals court ruled today that the practice is unconstitutional, in one of the strongest judicial defenses of technology privacy rights we've seen in a while.

The United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit ruled that the government illegally obtained and used Quartavious Davis's cell phone location data to help convict him in a string of armed robberies in Miami and unequivocally stated that cell phone location information is protected by the Fourth Amendment.

"In short, we hold that cell site location information is within the subscriber’s reasonable expectation of privacy," the court ruled in an opinion written by Judge David Sentelle. "The obtaining of that data without a warrant is a Fourth Amendment violation."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good on the US Court of Appeals!! :-)

Obama praises ‘very severe’ gun confiscation program of Australia

President Barack Obama said in a recent address that he’s become ‘frustrated’ with America’s lack of movement toward civilian disarmament. As police in the USA become increasingly militarized (with Obama’s help), the president is using crime as an emotional tool to soften Americans toward gun control. Surrounded by heavily armed body guards, Obama said on June 10th:

Couple of decades ago, Australia had a mass shooting, similar to Columbine or Newtown. And Australia just said, well, that’s it, we’re not doing, we’re not seeing that again, and basically imposed very severe, tough gun laws, and they haven’t had a mass shooting since.

Our levels of gun violence are off the charts. There’s no advanced, developed country that would put up with this.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to President Obama; this is a lousy attempt at misdirection, sir. In virtually all of these cases, the perps were either on - or weaning themselves away from - SSRI medications.

OF course, that is something you, or members of Congress, don't want to touch with a ten foot pole, because of how "generous" big pharma is to those support the industry, and allow the creation of medications which can cripple - and literally, kill - people who are taking them, and others as well.

And as to the statement that "There’s no advanced, developed country that would put up with this." Sir, forgive me,what were you thinking when you made that statement?!?!? Did your alleged fact checkers blink and miss the Swiss example, or did you just not know?!?

Gun politics in Switzerland are unique in Europe. The vast majority of men between the ages of 20 and 30 are conscripted into the militia and undergo military training, including weapons training. The personal weapons of the militia are kept at home as part of the military obligations; Switzerland thus has one of the highest gun ownership rates in the world.[1] In recent times a minority of political opposition has expressed a desire for tighter gun regulations.[2] A referendum in February 2011 rejected stricter gun control.[3]

Mother of seven found dead in jail cell serving time for children’s truancy

Eileen DiNino, a 55-year-old mother of seven from Reading, Pennsylvania, was found dead in her cell on Saturday. She was in the midst of a 48-hour jail sentence that was meant to erase her $2,000 debt, which had built up since 1999 by her sons' truancy from a vocational school, according to the Associated Press.

Police said the cause of death has yet to be determined, but the tragedy has already infuriated much of the community and the judge who sent DiNino to the Berks County jail.

“Did something happen? Was she scared to death?” said District Judge Dean Patton, who told reporters that he has been unable to sleep in the wake of her death yet had no other option under the law than to impose the sentence.

Indiana GOP candidate: ‘No one has the guts’ to let poor people ‘wither and die’

A northwest Indiana Republican has backtracked on outrageous comments he made on Facebook about poor people.

John Johnston, who is challenging Democratic state Rep. Chuck Moseley for the 10th District seat, said during a social media discussion on poverty that “no one has the guts to just let them wither and die.”

“The voters are the ones in charge,” Johnston said. “(H)owever when only 10-11 percent show up to vote, not much will change. People simply are not hurting enough, or simply happy enough that they will do nothing. consequently the dole continues.”

However, Johnston told the newspaper he didn’t advocate the end to programs such as welfare or food stamps.

“My main point is that the programs are used as political tools,” Johnston said. “Sometimes it hurts, but you might give them less to motivate someone to get a job.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No, Mr. Johnson, given the current state of the American body politic, the voters are absolutely NOT in charge; it is the major corporations which fund election cycles which are in charge.

By the time elections happen at the state or national level, all candidates have been thoroughly vetted by the major corporations, to make sure that they will deliver legislation which is favorable to them, first and foremost.

And as to those people on welfare who should "get a job", just what jobs are available for them, when college graduates are now earning minimum wage at discount big box stores, because the decently paying jobs have been offshored/outsourced, courtesy of those major corporations which fund election cycles?!?

Mr. Johnson, I am waiting for an intelligent answer on this, sir!!

19 Reasons Why You Can Laugh When Anyone Tells You That The Economy Is In Good Shape

Have you heard the one about the “economic recovery” in the United States? It’s quite funny, but it is not actually true. Every day, the establishment media points to the fact that global stock markets have soared to unprecedented heights as evidence that the economy is improving. But just because a bunch of wealthy people have gotten temporarily even richer on paper does not mean that the real economy is in good shape. In fact, as you will see below, things just continue to get even tougher for the poor and the middle class. Retail stores are closing at the fastest pace since the fall of Lehman Brothers, the rate of homeownership in this country is the lowest that it has been in 19 years, one out of every five families do not have a single member that is employed, and one out of every five children is living in poverty. We are working harder, earning less and going into more debt.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These numbers are absolutely staggering, and bode ill for any kind of true economic recovery here in the US at any time soon.

Senate’s Latest NDAA Draft Further Tramples Americans’ Rights

The Senate’s draft of the National Defense Authorization Act for 2015 was written behind closed doors and kept secret for around 11 days, but the text of the bill was publicly released last week.

In response, Chris Anders, senior legislative counsel for the American Civil Liberties Union’s Washington Legislative Office, wrote a blog post for the ACLU chronicling his concerns about the annual defense policy bill.

“Top senators thought you wouldn’t notice,” wrote Anders, but the 2015 NDAA includes provisions that “paves the way for Guantánamo-style indefinite detention being brought to the United States itself.”

He also encouraged the public to not only read the text of the 784-page bill, but to contact their lawmakers and encourage them to vote against the legislation that he says allows for the use of military force to detain Americans indefinitely — even if U.S. involvement in a combat situation were to end.

Exclusive: Immigrant Minors Alleged Mistreatment By U.S. Border Officials

As federal officials scramble to care for the thousands of unaccompanied immigrant children who have surged across the border in recent months, records obtained by BuzzFeed show that some minors have claimed that immigration officials physically abused them.

One girl from El Salvador said she was run over by a U.S. government vehicle while being taken into custody in June 2011. The girl was turned over to a shelter overseen by a different federal agency and then was taken to the hospital, which diagnosed a “crush injury” in her right leg. She told a clinician that she was “trying to run away from immigration when she fell down and her right leg was run over by one of the tires on the vehicle,” according to an incident report.

She also said she believed that immigration officials “were not attending to her needs and did not believe that the injury had been caused by being run over.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF these reports are true, they are, indeed, very disturbing.

Kids need love, structure, and a sense of hope, that their lives will have meaning, and positive significance: they DO NOT need abuse.

U.S. Government Ties El Salvador USD 277 M Aid Package to Monsanto’s GMO Seeds

The President of the El Salvadoran Center for Appropriate Technologies (CESTA), Ricardo Navarro, has demanded that the U.S. Ambassador to El Salvador, Mari Carmen Aponte, stops pressurizing the Government of El Salvador to buy Monsanto’s GM seeds rather than non-GMO seeds from domestic suppliers.

“I would like to tell the U.S. Ambassador to stop pressuring the Government (of El Salvador) to buy ‘improved’ GM seeds,” said Navarro, which is only of benefit to U.S. multinationals and is to the detriment of local seed production, Verdad Digital reported last week.

In recent weeks, the U.S. has been pushing the El Salvadoran Government to sign the second Millennium Challenge Compact. One of the main conditions on the agreement is allegedly for the purchasing of GM seeds from Monsanto.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you don't think Monsanto doesn't have the American government by the "short and curlies", please read this article again, very carefully.

Andrea Mitchell not buying State Dept.’s spin on Bergdahl Swap

MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell appeared visibly irritated with State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf on Monday amid her efforts to suggest the Osama bin Laden raid serves as a precedent for a national security matter that is too sensitive to allow members of Congress to be briefed on its details. Harf even suggested that Mitchell and others were attempting to “recreate” the history of the bin Laden raid by insisting that members were briefed on it before it was executed.

You might not realize it while traveling through the small town of Pulaski County, Indiana, population 13,124, but you're actually in a "war zone," at least so says Sheriff Michael Gayer in justifying the acquisition of a MRAP military vehicle.

Mere Existence of Palestine Deemed a “Threatening Racial Slur” by the [parent corporation of the] Houston Dynamo Organization

Apparently, soccer fans are very nationalistic. It is not uncommon for soccer fans to bring their national flag to a game where their national team is not even playing. In this spirit, a Palestinian-American woman named Buthayna Hammad brought her Palestinian flag to last Sunday’s Honduras vs Israel match at BBVA Compass Stadium. Fifteen minutes into the game, Nathan Buchanan, head of security at the stadium, removed her from her seat, surrounded her with four Houston Police officers and three additional stadium security personnel, and prohibited her from returning to her seat until she surrendered the “racist” flag. What makes the flag “racist?”

Rand Paul: Swap Five Democrats for Marine Held in Mexico

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) has a tongue-in-cheek suggestion for President Obama: Negotiate another prisoner exchange, but this time trade five senior Democrats for a U.S. Marine being held in Mexico.

Addressing the GOP convention in Fort Worth, Texas Friday, Paul said a delegate he had been chatting to had said, “There is one guy who is kind of deserving we ought to try to get home, and that’s the Marine who accidentally carried his guns into Mexico.”

“So here’s what I’m thinking: Mr. President, you love to trade people.”

“Why don’t we set up a trade? But this time, instead of five Taliban, how about five Democrats?” Paul said to laughter and applause. “I’m thinking John Kerry, Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi – couldn’t we send them to Mexico?”

The other Cold War that no one talks about

As usual, the biggest story in America is suppression of news. There has never been a time when the media has taken such an aggressive position, not even after 9/11. It’s more than Ukraine or Syria. The US has not only outraged Russia and China but other nations that were once afraid of the US are now ready to hit back. The simplest way to go after the US is to release classified intelligence showing the US as an aggressor nation or worse, a dupe, violent, dangerous and uncaring.

We forget what it was like, the carefully orchestrated orgy of hate after the nuclear demolition of the WTC and the missile attack on the Pentagon. This is one of many shameful moments in American history, where a nation abandoned common sense and backed a gang of traitors whose common purpose, all can see now, was and is the destruction of the United States and “her freedoms.”

Top intelligence official claims: Obama admin. funded terror network ‘for the next ten years’

The Obama administration reportedly considered offering cash for his release as late as December 2013. The State Department has repeatedly refused to say whether the deal that released Bergdahl involved any cash payment.

The ransom plan was reportedly abandoned, but the intelligence official insisted that there is reason to believe that cash changed hands as part of the deal.

“The Haqqanis could give a rat’s ass about prisoners,” the official said, referring to the Haqqani Network, a designated terrorist group in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and the five Guantanamo Bay prisoners who were freed in exchange for Bergdahl’s release.

“The people that are holding Bergdahl want[ed] cash and someone paid it to them,” he said.

Hillary Clinton Won't Second Guess President Obama's 'Very Hard Choice' On Bergdahl

In an exclusive interview with ABC’s Diane Sawyer, Hillary Clinton defended President Obama’s decision to swap five Taliban prisoners for U.S. solider Bowe Bergdahl, saying she won’t second guess him.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All of a sudden, the lockstep defense of Obama by Democrats starts to make sense. Obama's latest PR stunt, bringing back Bergdahl to offset the damage from the VA scandal, has blown up in his face with the revelation that Bergdahl was a deserter and defector. Standing with Obama on this issue mere months before the November elections is not going to help the re-election chances for Democrats. But with Obama in his last term of office, it doesn't make sense to rick ones own career to protect him.

But it makes perfect sense if they are protecting Hillary for 2016.

As things stand, Hillary looks to handily win the 2016 Democratic nomination. And short of bringing back Ron Paul, the GOP is unlikely to find a candidate who can keep Hillary from the White House.

But if Obama is impeached, or resigns, or removed under the Twenty Fifth Amendment, then Joe Biden steps into the Oval Office and enters the 2016 primaries already being the President, an advantage that could easily sweep Hillary off to one side. If Biden replaces Obama more than half way through Obama's second term, then he is legally eligible to run for two terms on his own, taking him to 2024, by which time Hillary will be too old to run again.

So I think what is going on is that the Democrats who support Hillary are trying to protect Obama in order to protect her chances for 2016.

EXCLUSIVE: Bergdahl declared jihad in captivity, secret documents show

U.S. Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl at one point during his captivity converted to Islam, fraternized openly with his captors and declared himself a "mujahid," or warrior for Islam, according to secret documents prepared on the basis of a purported eyewitness account and obtained by Fox News.

The reports indicate that Bergdahl's relations with his Haqqani captors morphed over time, from periods of hostility, where he was treated very much like a hostage, to periods where, as one source told Fox News, "he became much more of an accepted fellow" than is popularly understood. He even reportedly was allowed to carry a gun at times.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Charles Krauthammer is saying that Obama had to be crazy to think this swap would work with the American people. And I agree, but I also think Obama had no idea what Bergdahl was really all about, since Obama reportedly did not consult with US intelligence agencies on the deal, which means he may have gone into this PR stunt wiuth the image of Bergdahl as a hero, which was the propaganda being put out by the military. I learned long ago in Hollywood that anyone who starts believing their own publicity is headed for trouble, and this seems to prove the point.

Susan Rice Scolds Media for Trying Bergdahl in ‘Court of Public Opinion’

Joining President Barack Obama in France to mark the 70th anniversary of the invasion of Normandy, National Security Advisor Susan Rice was cornered by CNN reporter Jim Acosta and asked to explain her claim that Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl served with “honor and distinction.” Rice defended her remarks and scolded the press for rushing to judgment about Bergdahl before he has had the opportunity to explain his side of the story.

In a Sunday appearance on ABC’s This Week, Rice insisted that Bergdahl “served the United States with honor and distinction.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Susan, whatever they pay you to look this stupid, it is NOT enough!

LAPD Moves Closer To Testing Aerial Drones For ‘Tactical Events’

Police may soon begin using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) during manhunts, standoffs and other “tactical events”, LAPD Chief Charlie Beck said Thursday.

The LAPD obtained two UAVs – otherwise known as drones – from the Seattle Police Department last week at no cost to the city, according to officials.

The Seattle Police Department originally purchased the Draganflyer X6 Unmanned Aerial Vehicles using federal grants. The drones are currently being kept at an undisclosed federal law enforcement facility “pending review by the LAPD and the Board of Police Commissioners” and the public, according to the LAPD.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Its successor, the Draganfly x8, can carry only a 2.2 lb. payload.

But I have to wonder what the Vegas odds are of drones over major US cities becoming weaponized, and soon.

After all, President Obama has decided he has the authority to extrajudicially assassinate anyone he wants to overseas, with absolutely zero due process; so, how far a leap of logic would it take for him to decide that he can do the same thing here at home, in the United States?

Unfortunately, the short answer is, not much!

Half The Country Makes Less Than $27,520 A Year And 15 Other Signs The Middle Class Is Dying

If you make more than $27,520 a year at your job, you are doing better than half the country is. But you don’t have to take my word for it, you can check out the latest wage statistics from the Social Security administration right here. But of course $27,520 a year will not allow you to live “the American Dream” in this day and age. After taxes, that breaks down to a good bit less than $2,000 a month. You can’t realistically pay a mortgage, make a car payment, afford health insurance and provide food, clothing and everything else your family needs for that much money.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Since the beginning of outsourcing of manufacturing in the 80s, there has been a steady decline in the standard of living for far too many Americans, and a staggering number of American children live in poverty right now.

Do not think for a moment that this is anything but deliberate. Traditionally, protest movements have come from the middle class; eliminate the middle class, and you have very little in terms of protests against the government, coupled with a dependence on it, so that people do not dare question what the government is doing at any given moment.

Bilderberg Authoritarianism Destroys Humanity

Knowing the accuracy of historical reality is difficult, but accepting the truth in that chronicle is almost impossible for most people to accept. This reluctance to deal with the stark and calculated obliteration of societal freedom is the ultimate curse of the human condition. The denial of the authoritarian plan by elites like the Bilderberg cabal is the equivalent of Satan's greatest lie, convincing us he does not exist. Well, the days of casting the smear of conspiracy over any reporting on the secret and hidden conclave of global manipulators, is officially over.

Judge demands govt halt destruction of NSA surveillance data

The US government has been ordered “not to destroy” records gleaned from National Security Agency surveillance that are relevant to active lawsuits challenging the legality of spying programs, a federal judge said Thursday.

US District Court Judge Jeffrey White said evidence pertaining to the government’s use of Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act is relevant to a current court case and should be preserved.

The ruling came after a request by the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), which is challenging NSA intrusion into foreigners’ US-based email and social media accounts.

Whatever became of morality?

The 12-year old girls’ attempt to murder their friend does offer an insight into why the American population, including the “Christian” churches, has been mute for the entirety of the 21st century while the US government and its military have murdered, maimed, and displaced millions of people in 7 countries that have been destroyed in whole or part, entirely on the basis of Washington’s lies. There is scant sign of any American remorse over these extraordinary crimes against humanity.

We see no sign of any moral conscience in the Congress’ curtailments of the social safety net or in the constant stream of lies that intend to lead to more wars for the sake of the military/security complex’s profits and the neoconservatives’ agenda of US supremacy, which risks nuclear war and the extinction of life on earth.
