Footing Israel’s Bill

Every year, Washington sends $3.1 billion of taxpayers’ hard-earned money to Israel. It’s only fair to ask what Americans are getting in return.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is busy badmouthing the tentative nuclear deal with Iran, a major diplomatic achievement for the United States. And a few weeks ago, he declared his opposition to a Palestinian state, a longstanding U.S. priority.
Note: the 3.1 billion is only on budget! Estimates are another 3.1 billion off budget! Had enough yet.

GOP passes massive tax break for millionaires, billionaires

In recent months, high-profile Republicans, sounding quite a bit like class warriors, have complained bitterly about the wealthy benefiting most from the recent economic recovery. Even House Ways & Means Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), without a hint of irony, complained that recent trends point to “exacerbated inequality.” The far-right congressman added that only “the wealthy are doing really well.”

The double-standard of making the poor prove they’re worthy of government benefits "This is also what enables politicians to gin up indignation among small-government supporters who don't realize they rely on government themselves."

Poverty looks pretty great if you're not living in it. The government gives you free money to spend on steak and lobster, on tattoos and spa days, on — why not? — cruise vacations and psychic visits.

Republicans place Israel's interests over America's: Poll

Americans self-identifying as Republicans place Israel's interests ahead of America's and feel more sympathetic to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu than to President Barack Obama, a new poll finds.

Republicans by a ratio of more than 2-to-1 say the US should support Israel even when its policies are in contrast with US interests, according to the Bloomberg poll.

State seizes 11-year-old, arrests his mother after he defends medical marijuana during a school presentation

On March 24, cannabis oil activist Shona Banda‘s life was flipped upside-down after her son was taken from her by the State of Kansas. The ordeal started when police and counselors at her 11-year-old son’s school conducted a drug education class. Her son, who had previously lived in Colorado for a period of time, disagreed with some of the anti-pot points that were being made by school officials. “My son says different things like my ‘Mom calls it cannabis and not marijuana.’ He let them know how educated he was on the facts,” said Banda in an exclusive interview with BenSwann.com. Banda successfully treated her own Crohn’s disease with cannabis oil.

France wants to fight terrorism by spying on everyone - Prime minister says proposed surveillance law 'is not a French Patriot Act,' but civil liberties groups say it goes too far

French lawmakers have spent the past four days debating a controversial anti-terrorism bill that, if passed, would dramatically expand the government's surveillance powers. The law's backers describe it as a necessary measure to thwart terrorist attacks, and it has strong support on both sides of the aisle. But the bill has drawn sharp criticism from French internet companies over fears that it could harm business, and from privacy advocates who say it would severely curtail civil liberties.

Top Gear 'fracas': the Stig speaks out

I suppose there are three potential outcomes.

One: Everybody leaves, perhaps with the three amigos moving to a new network, and the BBC’s Top Gear starts from scratch.

Two: Wilman stays, hauls that dragon boat around and rekindles the magic with a new format, perhaps with new faces.

Three: Everybody stages a comeback. “It’s all been a PR stunt!” Labrokes recently slashed their odds on this scenario to 5/1. I’m off to the bookies.

Al Saud regime on verge of collapse: Iran cleric

A senior Iranian cleric says the rule of Al Saud dynasty is on the brink of collapse as the Riyadh regime continues its brutal military aggression against Yemen.

The logic of Saudi attack on Yemen is not clear. Saudis are doing a “very heinous deed” in the impoverished country, said Ayatollah Mohammad Ali Movahhedi Kermani in a sermon to worshippers at weekly Friday Prayers in the Iranian capital, Tehran.

“You [Saudis] have triggered a bloodbath in Yemen and have killed more than 2,500 innocent people in the country,” he added.

Christopher Bollyn on “Solving 9/11 ends the war” on Kevin Barrett’s Truth Jihad Radio (audio)

On this day in history, April 15th, 1912, the Titanic sank. Today’s guest Christopher Bollyn, author of Solving 9/11, says the American ship of state is sailing towards doom – and the only way to turn it around is by facing the truth about 9/11.

Christopher just returned to his home in Europe after a “Solving 9/11 Ends the War” speaking tour in the US. (I will be speaking in some of the same venues during next week’s We Are NOT Charlie Hebdo book tour.) We discuss America’s, and the world’s, gradual awakening to the truth about 9/11 – and the possibility that Netanyahu and the neocons could launch another huge false flag to torpedo the Iran nuclear agreement and cover their 9/11 tracks via a wider war that could go global and nuclear.

Netanyahu slips, Reveals reason for Opposition to Iran Deal

US television news isn't very good and it has clearly gotten worse over the past 20 years. In the aftermath of the Kerry-Zarif initial framework deal on nuclear energy in Iran, it seems obvious that an interview with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif would be newsworthy. But to my knowledge none of the networks or major cable news shows had him on ... Instead, Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was given repeated access to millions of Americans to talk trash about the deal over the weekend and to make mostly false allegations about its contours ... Netanyahu has showed his hand. He wants to use the USA and the Treasury Department to sanction Iran into penury, to keep its middle classes small and shrinking and to cut people's income, education and health care.

Revealing Israel's Nuclear Secrets

In early February, the Pentagon declassified a 386-page report from 1987, exposing for the first time ever the actual depth of top-secret military cooperation between the United States and Israel — including, amazingly, information about Israel’s unacknowledged nuclear program.

In view of the caustic tension that has increased lately between Washington and Jerusalem, the timing of the publication’s declassification, after a long legal process, might raise a few eyebrows. I have some knowledge about the build-up process of Israel’s nuclear capacity and after reading the report in question I must express my astonishment: I have never seen an official American document disclosing such extensive revelation on subjects that until now were regarded by both administrations as unspeakable secrets.

BEX Alert!!! - "Germany's response to Nazism on trial as man, 93, faces 300,000 charges"

BERLIN — Nearly 70 years after World War II ended in Europe with Nazi Germany's surrender on May 7, 1945, what's likely to be the final criminal chapter of that horrific period is about to unfold in a small German town.

Beginning next Tuesday, Oskar Groening, who's better known as "the accountant of Auschwitz," goes on trial for what in any other context would seem an impossible crime: 300,000 counts of accessory to murder.

Innocence is not really an issue, though guilt will be: Groening has freely admitted that he stood on the unloading ramps of the most infamous of the Nazi death camps and counted the cash confiscated from the Hungarian Jews who spilled out of the box cars, headed for selection. What the court will decide is whether that made him an accessory to their murders in Auschwitz's gas chambers.

US, Israel OK'd Saudi war on Yemen: Iran defense min.

Iran’s defense minister says the Saudi aggression against Yemen has been authorized by the United States and the Israeli regime, calling for an immediate end to the deadly assaults.

Addressing the Fourth Moscow International Security Conference on Thursday, Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan said the Saudi government unleashed deadly air raids against Yemen once it received the green light from the United States and Israel, and was promised military cooperation by some regional states.

He added that not only will the Saudi regime fail to achieve its “illegitimate” purposes in Yemen, but will also suffer a heavy defeat and precipitate its downfall, said Dehqan, adding a fate similar to that of former Iraqi dictator, Saddam Hussein, awaits Riyadh’s ruler.

S-300 missile system serves defense purposes for Iran: Putin

Russian President Vladimir Putin has defended Moscow’s recent decision to deliver S-300 air defense system to Iran, saying the system is meant for deterrence amid the developments in war-torn Yemen.

He made the remarks during his annual televised question-and-answer session with the nation at Gostiny Dvor (Merchant Yard) exhibition hall in the Russian capital city of Moscow on Thursday.

“This is a defensive weapons system. More than that, considering the situation that is building up in the region, especially regarding the incidents in Yemen, we think that the delivery of this kind of weapon is a preventive factor,” Putin said.

The comments come as Yemen has been the scene of deadly aerial assaults by Saudi Arabia since March 26. The attacks have so far killed some 2,600 people, according to Yemeni sources.

How Israel Hid Its Secret Nuclear Weapons Program

A little anecdote about an occurrence sometime in September 1960 sheds light on the development of U.S. perceptions that Israel was being less than honest about Dimona. That month, Addy Cohen, then the young director of the Foreign Aid Office at the Israeli Finance Ministry, hosted U.S. ambassador to Israel Ogden Reid and some of his senior staff for a tour of the Dead Sea Works—a large Israeli potash plant in Sdom, on the Dead Sea coast of Israel. The Israeli Air Force provided a Sikorsky S-58 helicopter to fly the American group from Tel Aviv to Sdom. As they were returning on the helicopter, near the new town of Dimona, Reid pointed to a huge industrial site under heavy construction and asked what it was.
Note: It wasn't hidden at all the whole world knew it!!

Chris Christie yells at teachers but ignores overpaid cops: New Jersey has the highest-paid police officers in the country, with a median salary of $92,250

"I'm tired of you people. What do you want?"
That's how Chris Christie talks to educators, in this case an elementary school teacher who also runs an after school program. Christie is convinced teachers are overpaid, and as long as he's been governor, he seems to be on a crusade to bully New Jersey's educators, calling them "overpaid," "greedy" and accused their "me first" salaries of killing jobs.

Then, they said, Burge would place a plastic bag over the suspect’s head. Finally, he would crank his little black box and listen to the screams of pain as electricity coursed through the suspect’s body.

Mandatory Vaccines: SB277 CONTROVERSIAL COMMITTEE CHAIR STEALS VICTORY FROM CA PARENTS

Following hours of hearing several hundred parents voice their opposition to the controversial SB277, the bill that would remove the personal and religious exemptions and would require mandatory vaccines for children attending public or private schools, was going to fail the Senate Committee Hearing.

The Senate Education Committee held it’s hearing concerning the portion of the bill that would exclude children whose parents have chosen not to vaccinate them from schooling.

Holocaust Survivor Memoir Exposed as Fraud

A Holocaust survivor memoir that has received prestigious literary awards and lavish praise has been exposed as a hoax.
Jewish groups and major American newspapers have warmly praised Fragments. The New York Times called it "stunning," and the Los Angeles Times lauded it as a "classic first-hand account of the Holocaust." It received the 1996 National Jewish Book Award for Autobiography and Memoir, while in Britain it was awarded the Jewish Quarterly Literary Prize, and in France the Prix Memoire de la Shoah.

The US Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC -- a federal government agency -- was so impressed that it sent Wilkomirski on a six-city United States fund-raising tour last fall.

Putin defends Iran missile decision during call-in show

President Vladimir Putin sternly urged the West to respect Russia's interests in global affairs and defended his move to sanction the delivery of a long-range air defense missile system to Iran during a marathon TV call-in show with the nation Thursday.

Putin scathingly criticized Washington for refusing to see Moscow as an equal partner and warned that Russia-West ties, in shambles over the Ukrainian crisis, could only be normalized when the U.S. and its allies show readiness for compromise.

He also described the killing of top Kremlin critic Boris Nemtsov as "tragic and shameful" and commended police for quickly tracking down the perpetrators, but said he wasn't certain if Russian law-enforcement agencies would be able to track down those who organized it.

Did Little Moshe Really Die Six Times

On April 27, 1995, the elite of German society, wearing Jewish mourning hats, gathered together in Belsen to mourn, weep and wail. These politically correct elite stood shoulder to shoulder with their Jewish holocaust-comrades in an affected display of unity to the world, whilst the entire world media captured these tender moments for posterity. The act of caring, worthy of a Holowood-Oscar, was to mourn the "mass gassings" in the former Belsen "extermination" camp. However, Belsen had no gas chambers and was far from being an extermination camp. Belsen was a camp for prominent, influential Jews for future exchange. But no matter, this is not important, for the SHOA must go on.

At that moment, it will be because they no longer fear either the repercussions or their plans being obstructed.

As I plan to show in this installment of my series on the hidden fiscal collapse of America, the endgame has indeed arrived. At the very least, the international elites seem to think success is within their grasp, for they now openly expose their own criminality. But they do so in a way that attempts to divert blame or to rationalize their actions as being for the “greater good.”...

Washington's Mistral fiat flattens French arms industry; Sukhoi flies high

Another coup for Putin. Everything DC touches turns to crap!

India has essentially annulled it gigantic arms contract with France for the purchase and combined construction of 126 Rafale fighter planes; the Indian Prime Minister agreed to buy only
36 of them during his visit to Paris last week, a responsible government source stated. Instead, India will buy 127 fifth generation Russian fighter jets.

It is part of the direct fall-out from the socialist French governments anti-Russian policy, aligned with Washington. Obedient to the US, the Le Drian/Hollande tandem chose not to turn over the Mistral ships to Russia.

Exposing the Holocaust™ Hoax Archive - A HolyHoax Museum

Kitty Hart Moxon's tear-jerking Holohoax tale - Had to scrape Auschwitz toilets with bare hands; used same bowl for food and as a toilet; 3.6 million were holocausted in Auschwitz in just 8 months!!
Kitty says the bowl was her "lifeline", and that the same bowl was used for eating soup and as a toilet. She never was able to wash it between uses.
Note: To teach this to our children "holocau$t education" is criminal.

Signs That The Elite Are Feverishly Preparing For Something BIG

What in the world are the elite up to?  In recent days, we have learned that the New York Fed is moving a lot of operations to Chicago because of concerns about what a “natural disaster” could do, the federal government is buying 62 million rounds of ammunition commonly used in AR-15 semi-automatic rifles for “training” purposes, and NORAD is moving back into Cheyenne Mountain because it is “EMP-hardened”.  In addition, government authorities have scheduled a whole host of unusual “training exercises” all over the nation.  So are the elite doing all of this in order to prepare for something really BIG, or should we just chalk up all of this strange activity to rampant government paranoia?

Police Deserve No Sympathy Until the Blue Line Breaks

TIME invited several top police officials to weigh in on the "lesson" in the recent incident in South Carolina in which a police officer, who has since been charged with murder and is facing life in prison, shot an unarmed, 50-year-old man who was running away from him. All made the politically correct comments, but they still do not understand the problem.

Hillary Tells Journalists Not to Use These 13 Words... Because They Are 'Coded Sexism'

These aren’t words representing a power-hungry individual seeking the highest office in the land at any cost.

As Drought Stricken Californians Cut Back, Corporations Get a Pass

Now that California’s drought has entered its fourth year, Governor Jerry Brown is finally cracking down on state municipalities, and is trying to get them cut back at least 25% of their water usage. With the threat of water shortages looming, many residents are quick to point fingers at California’s agricultural industry. What with almond growers sucking up 1.1 trillion gallons of water a year, and the beef industry using 106 gallons of water for every ounce of meat, it looks like many Californians are ready to throw both small farmers and Big Ag under the bus.

However, this state’s water problems aren’t just relegated to agriculture. It’s now become common knowledge that for decades, California has allowed beverage companies to bottle public water with little oversight. What most people are just now learning is that, to extract this water from public land requires a permit, and water bottle companies like Arrowhead have had their permits expired since 1988...

Monsanto Is the Dept. Of Homeland Security for Food

Being the US government means being on permanent wartime status.

Wherever it is possible to fantasize enemies, enemies are there. They must be conquered. They must be stopped.

It’s a vast cover story that, among other benefits, provides enormous profits to the military industrial complex.

Here’s an addition to the cover story: to accomplish this war on everything that moves, advanced technology must be deployed—and those who resist the omnipresence and domination of the technology are considered potential terrorists.

Even a small organic American farmer on an acre of land can qualify as a threat, because he appears to oppose the technology of genetic engineering, as it applies to food crops...
