Sunday’s vote will determine liberty or serfdom for the Greek people

2,500 years ago Greeks saved their independence from the Persian Empire. Sunday’s vote will tell us whether Greeks have again served liberty or whether they have succumbed to Washington’s Empire.

The fate of all Europeans and of Americans themselves will be settled on Sunday.

Why Bernie Sanders is a Dead End

... This time around that "progressive" Democrat is self-proclaimed "socialist" Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont ... While Bernie may come across as sincere about class politics, make no mistake, he's is a militarist that isn't about to challenge U.S. supremacy. He supported the ugly war on Kosovo, the invasion of Afghanistan, funding for the endless Iraq disaster as well as the losing and misguided War on Terror ... As for Israel, Bernie has been a hawkish advocate that would never halt the $3 billion the U.S. government sends to the country every year. Last summer he backed Israel's murderous bombing of Gaza ... It shouldn't come as a surprise then that several former members of Bernie's staff have also been employed by AIPAC ... His is a disgusting record. Want to change in the U.S.'s meddling in the Middle East? Bernie isn't your guy.

Mass demonstration opposes austerity in Greece

Ahead of Sunday’s referendum a massive protest took place in Athens Friday evening, in opposition to the austerity programme of the European Union (EU) and International Monetary Fund.

In a show of defiance, tens of thousands of people packed Athens’ central Syntagma Square in front of the parliament building. The main sentiment expressed by the crowd was a determination to end years of austerity. Among them were many young people.

EU, troika subjecting Greece to terrorism: Finance minister

Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis has slammed the European Union and the international lenders for attempting to “humiliate” his nation, saying their treatment of Greece’s debt crisis amounts to “terrorism.”

Greece Faces New Kind of Coup

Two months ago Euclid Tsakalotos, the deputy Foreign Minister, took over as Greece's new chief negotiator, instead of Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis. He says the government faces a new kind of coup, one that is not carried out with tanks, as in 1967, but through banks.

What Stinks about Varoufakis and the Whole Greek Mess?

Something stinks very bad about Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis and the entire Greek mess that has been playing out since the election victory of the nominally pro-Greek Syriza Party in January. I am coming to the reluctant conclusion that far from being the champion of the hapless Greek people, Varoufakis is part of a far larger and very dirty game.

Fed Rate Hike Is Nothing to Panic About

"Delaying action to tighten monetary policy until employment and inflation are already back to our objectives would risk overheating the economy," she said in May. "For this reason, if the economy continues to improve as I expect, I think it will be appropriate at some point this year to take the initial step to raise the federal funds rate target and begin the process of normalizing monetary policy."

How Europe cancelled Germany’s debt in 1953

Given the intransigence and downright hostility of Germany's political leadership over the issue of the repayment of Greek debt, the story of Greece's participation in the write-off of German debt in 1953 deserves to be brought into the limelight once more.

As Referendum Looms, Troika Charged with Plotting 'Regime Change' in Greece

With so much still up in the air, it was Tsipras who took to his Twitter account on Friday with this simple message for Greeks ahead of the vote: "Greek citizens, the time has come for responsibility and democracy. Let's silence fear-mongering and baseless talk of disaster."

He then added: "Let us calmly go to the polls and make our choice by weighing the arguments—not the slogans."

Jade Helm – a Slippery Slope

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

Guest author Kenneth Anton: author of Popsicle Man and Cancer Vortex

It is stated by the government that “Jade Helm” is just a ‘Military Training Exercise’ taking place in 7 southwest states (possibly more) for just 2 months from 7/15/15 to 9/15/15.

But many skeptics, including myself, see this incursion by the military into domestic affairs as a prelude to martial law across the whole United States.

Why should we listen to the skeptics? Based on recent past experience the Ruling Elite have committed major false flag operations while training exercises were conducted at the same time as cover. So be forewarned that another ‘Military Training Exercise’ could precede a major false flag or terrorist event.

Examples of such training exercises:

Just Before Round of Negotiations on the Proposed 'Trade in Services Agreement' (TISA), Wikileaks Releases Updated Secret Documents

Today, Wikileaks released a second batch of the most updated draft texts on the proposed TISA, along with substantive analysis, on each of four massive services sectors: Financial Services, Telecommunications Services, Electronic Commerce, and Maritime Transport. This follows on their release yesterday of cross-cutting annexes on Domestic Regulation, the "Movement of Natural Persons," Transparency, and Government Procurement, and the Agenda for next week's negotiations, along with what Wikileaks called the journalistic holy grail: the Core Text of the proposed agreement. The negotiating texts are supposed to remain secret for five years after the deal is finalized or abandoned.

Carving Out Kurdistan - The US/NATO Plan To Break Up Syria and Iraq

By Brandon Turbeville

Over the last few months, Americans who pay attention to current events have been treated to a surprising barrage of praise coming from the mainstream media regarding the Kurdish fighters in Syria.

NEW 'HOSTILE VEHICLE' POLICE TERM FOR RECORDING OR TALKING BACK WILL BRING DHS AND K9'S

The Rhode Island resident was in Philadelphia for the International Society for Technology in Education conference, waiting for a friend in her vehicle. A police officer noticed that she was parked in the wrong direction at the Amtrak 30th St. drop off.

Not satisfied with simply writing a ticket, the cop became verbally abusive. Perhaps he was agitated at being filmed, or enraged at the audacity of a person who dared to say the street signage was poor.

The cop had enough and radioed in a “hostile vehicle” call, which prompted eight other officers, a K-9 unit and Homeland Security to arrive.

What the Philly cop really broadcast is he encountered terrorists and possible explosives inside a car!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable!!

The only thing this person needed was an understanding of the fact that she was parked in the wrong direction, and that could have been given gently enough.

But to lie to your precinct about what had really gone on here... totally unforgivable.

Students whose families make less than $65,000 also won’t have to pay for room and board, which can run about another $14,100.

July 4: Liberty and Justice for all? 20,000 dead children daily from preventable poverty as .01% demand war and debt in a world of plenty

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

“Crimes against humanity” include any of the following acts committed as part of a widespread or systematic attack directed against any civilian population, with knowledge of the attack:
murder;
extermination;
enslavement;...
the crime of apartheid;
other inhumane acts of a similar character intentionally causing great suffering or serious bodily or mental injury.
- International Criminal Court (ICC)

The US Declaration of Independence is honored for asserting unalienable rights of “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” for each and every human being. The most cruel violation of these cherished ideals is intentional policy for ~20,000 children to die slow, painful, gruesome deaths from preventable poverty each and every day.

VA: Worker's response to vet is unacceptable

Iraq war veteran Chris Dorsey figured that no one would believe he had been turned away from a VA clinic when he sought an appointment for post-traumatic stress disorder.

So when he went on Tuesday to another facility, the VA Oakwood, Georgia, Community Based Outpatient Clinic, he flipped on his smartphone camera.

On the video, Dorsey is heard waiting patiently in line for more than 5 minutes. When he reaches the check-in counter, he informs the desk he needs a transfer from the Athens, Georgia, VA system and an appointment.

The response?

"We're not accepting any new patients — not this clinic," the VA employee behind the desk says, without providing any extra information, assistance or follow-on guidance for treatment.

According to Dorsey, his previous experience, getting turned away at the VA clinic in Lawrenceville, Georgia, prompted him to bring his camera to the Oakwood facility.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is an outrage against our Vets.

As much as I detest wars, because I understand that they are primarily for corporate profit, our Vets need to be taken care of with the best standard of medical care possible, and I mean, Dick Cheney-level care.

This should have NEVER happened to this Vet or any other.

Leaked: What’s in Obama’s trade deal

POLITICO has obtained a draft copy of TPP’s intellectual property chapter as it stood on May 11, at the start of the latest negotiating round in Guam. While U.S. trade officials would not confirm the authenticity of the document, they downplayed its importance, emphasizing that the terms of the deal are likely to change significantly as the talks enter their final stages. Those terms are still secret, but the public will get to see them once the twelve TPP nations reach a final agreement and President Obama seeks congressional approval.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These bills are not for the protection of We the People, but protection of corporate profits, period, end of discussion.

"... the most transparent administration in history", MY ASTROLABE!!

The administration is so terrified of public outrage about these terms, that the public is forbidden to see these treaties until they have been successfully concluded.

CRUELANDALL-TOO-USUAL

Warning: THIS VIDEO IS VERY, VERY GRAPHIC, AND VIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED:

Jamie, whose mother was addicted to crack cocaine, was adopted when she was 3. At high school, she fell in with a wayward crowd and started drinking and smoking weed. Since she didn't always get along with her adoptive mom, she lived with a close family friend from her church whom she referred to as her sister. One fall day in 2011, they got into a bad fight over their living arrangements. The friend told police that Jamie threw a brick at her, hitting her in the chest, and then banged the brick so hard on the front door that she broke the glass mail chute. Jamie denies the assault—and the police report notes that the brick may not have hit her friend—but she admitted to officers that she was “mad” and “trying to get back in the house.” The Wayne County court gave her two concurrent six-month sentences, for assault and destruction of a building.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Welcome to the world of juvenile detention in the US, a broken system engineered to create a staggering rate of recidivism.

No child should ever be thrown away and forgotten, in a system which absolutely doesn't work.

Enlightened countries, like Sweden, are closing a number of their prisons, because they don't have enough prisoners to house. Also, the sole focus of incarceration in Sweden is rehabilitation, so that when the inmate is released, they will have job skills, and an ability to move forward with their lives.

There are a lot of Jamies in this country; kids who wind up with their lives ruined from one completely stupid mistake.

IF the USA could get men on the moon, this country do far better by its juvenile prisoners, if there is a will to do so.

The difference is that gays have sex by mutual consent of equally mature partners. Pedophiles coerce children into sex, which is usually very painful for the child. That is the difference.

Klan camp: KKK developing ‘a mighty army’ of white nationalists at five day training in July

The Ku Klux Klan is encouraging interested citizens to attend a five-day training camp later this month, where students will study leadership skills intended to help them become better advocates of white supremacy in their own communities.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, this reeks to high heaven of psyops, courtesy of some "alphabet soup" federal agency, desperately attempting to stoke race riots in this country.

And one has to ask the questions: who benefits, and why now?!?

There are a number of observations one needs to consider.

Next year is an election year, and the "well-anointed" Democratic candidate, Hillary Clinton, is drowning in a vortex of self-inflicted baggage. Between the email issue; Benghazi; and the Clinton Foundation's dodgy dealings, and a perverse penchant for awarding arms contracts for money (any country's money), she is dealing with the reality that whatever shred of credibility she may have had with American voters has been well and truly flushed by recent revelations on these issues.

You have a global, and domestic economy in turmoil, with Greece defaulting; Puerto Rico unable to pay its debts; and Ukraine about to default on its IMF loans in about 3 weeks. All of this will affect Americans financially, and in a big way.

You have an administration initially promising "hope and change", which has fundamentally brought that to only the 1% and corporations which have funded it, so that it will continue to do their bidding.

Offshoring/Outsourcing of jobs continues at breakneck speed.

The people who used to earn a decent middle class wage from those manufacturing jobs have been relegated to minimum wage jobs, if they can find them, and we have massive numbers of Americans on pubic assistance, and a huge uptick in child poverty, particularly in the American South.

There are wars, undeclared, but wars nonetheless, which are killing and maiming some of the best and brightest of our youth, all for corporate profit.

So is there some degree of anger among Americans who hoped that voting Obama into office would change their lives for the better, and find themselves now worse off?!? Yes.

But are we being misdirected by this government (as does a magician) away from the fundamental problems which need to be fixed, and toward stirring up race hatred? I would answer yes, and for the following reason.

Race riots would give this administration the excuse they need to suspend the Constitution and Bill of rights, and declare martial law.

And what would that mean, precisely?

That would mean that without First Amendment protections, there could be no legal protests against the brokenness and corruption of our economic system; the continued wars and the new ones most likely to come (most probably against Iran, China, and Russia); and no protests if the draft legislation (National Universal Service Act, H.R 747), which has sitting in committee for two years, gets passed. And BTW, this time, the legislation will not only be coming for our young men, but also our young women as well. There can be no protests against the fast track trade agreements President Obama is crafting, which will provide a sucker punch to the gut to small American businesses.

And who knows?!? Perhaps this administration, after declaring martial law, might just suspend the election well past 2016, so that they can hope that the American people will collectively have such a strong case of ADHD that it will forget about Hillary's baggage, or find another candidate who is more viable.

This is not a time for hatred and race baiting; and please, don't fall for this.

Now is the time for solidarity among all Americans to clearly, calmly call for this administration to fix what is broken; fire the Federal Reserve, which is only another private banking entity, and start making good on their promises to ALL of We the People, not just to the big corporations.

And just to be clear here, I look very much like my European ancestors; but the only race with which I identify.... is the human race.
And that means I understand that I have a personal, moral responsibility to try to lift up all the people I can, in any way that I can.

Record 93.6 Million People Not in American Labor Force, Highest Since 1977

While the White House again is smiling through its teeth and claiming, "the strongest two-year job growth since 2000," a record-setting 93,626,000 Americans did not even participate in the nation’s labor force at all in June 2015.

That means that 93.6 million Americans age 16 or older who were not in the military or institutionalized did not hold down a job and didn't try to find one, either.

This is the largest number of people not working or trying to work in this country since 1977.

Doctors Without Borders on TPP: “We consider this the worst-ever agreement in terms of access to medicine,” he said. “It would create higher drug prices around the world—and in the U.S., too.

A recent draft of the Trans-Pacific Partnership free-trade deal would give U.S. pharmaceutical firms unprecedented protections against competition from cheaper generic drugs, possibly transcending the patent protections in U.S. law.

POLITICO has obtained a draft copy of TPP’s intellectual property chapter as it stood on May 11, at the start of the latest negotiating round in Guam.

XKEYSCORE: NSA’S GOOGLE FOR THE WORLD’S PRIVATE COMMUNICATIONS

One of the National Security Agency’s most powerful tools of mass surveillance makes tracking someone’s Internet usage as easy as entering an email address, and provides no built-in technology to prevent abuse. Today, The Intercept is publishing 48 top-secret and other classified documents about XKEYSCORE dated up to 2013, which shed new light on the breadth, depth and functionality of this critical spy system — one of the largest releases yet of documents provided by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden.

Welcome to Amerika, the land of the surveilled and the home of the cowed!!

COP WHO TORTURED HANDCUFFED MAN HAD PRIOR RECORD OF ATTACKING PEOPLE

In 2009 Colorado police officer Mark Magness broke an innocent man's arm during an illegal fireworks investigation. Magness pleaded guilty but the police department didn't fire him. Now that a video has been released that shows officer Magness horrifically torturing a handcuffed man who was also tied to a chair in December 2014, the department might be wondering if they made the wrong decision to keep Magness on the force.

The man, who is now fairly agitated after being assaulted while in handcuffs is thrown into the cell. He then makes a mistake and raises his open hand toward Magness.

At this point, Magness jumps on the man and begins pummeled him. Magness, knowing that his body camera is recording this abuse, continues to yell out, “Stop Resisting!” throughout the abuse in an attempt to justify his torturous ways.
It gets worse from there.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ah, but you see: THIS is the new normal for police departments in the US.

Training by the IDF makes American cops look at their fellow and sister citizens as though they were Palestinians.

This is how "to protect and serve" is interpreted now.

Calling the police, for ANY ISSUE, can now be hazardous to your health, or the health of your family and pets.

Please, just be smart and don't do it.

Artificial Intelligence Takes the Battlefield: Who Is Really Running Jade Helm 15?

Who is really going to be running Jade Helm 15?

There is more to the story than just training for martial law in states designated as "hostile states" – already a chilling pretext with overtones of greater federal power that could spiral out of control.

But it seems that it is actually A.I. – artificial intelligence – that is at the helm of an enormous and unprecedented military drill. A scary thought for sure... but what does it really mean?

If analysts are correct, it seems that "JADE" is an acronym for a DARPA-developed A.I. quantum computing technology that produces holographic battlefield simulations and will be in charge of the drill in order to "master the human" domain and predict human response.
