Iran Agreement Boosts Peace, Defeats Neocons

Last week’s successfully concluded Iran agreement is one of the two most important achievements of an otherwise pretty dismal Obama presidency. Along with the ongoing process of normalizing relations with Cuba, this move shows that diplomacy can produce peaceful, positive changes. It also shows that sometimes taking a principled position means facing down overwhelming opposition from all sides and not backing down. The president should be commended for both of these achievements.

Israel losing strategic value to US imperialism: Activist

Iran and Germany have discussed expanding banking cooperation which is vital to Tehran’s rehabilitation into the global financial fold from which it was shut off for years under draconian US and European sanctions.

The Horrors of John McCain: War Hero or War Criminal?

The race-baiting panjandrum of Manhattan, Donald Trump, is currently taking flak from the media and politicians for deprecating John McCain’s status as a “war hero”. Trump’s rhetoric is typically bombastic, but this time he may have struck a nerve. Here is a piece that Cockburn and I wrote in 1999 about a psychiatric evaluation of McCain underwent while a prisoner of war in North Vietnam. The psych0logical portrait drawn by Spanish psychiatrist Fernando Barral is that of a deeply narcissistic personality, cold, hardened and largely devoid of human empathy, a man who seemed to view the bombing of civilian populations as a kind of sport. These aggressive personality traits have also characterized his nasty political career.–

47% of Israelis would back unilateral Iran strike: poll

Almost half of Israelis would support a unilateral strike to prevent Iran obtaining the atomic bomb, an opinion poll carried out after a nuclear deal between Tehran and major powers found. Nearly three-quarters of respondents in the poll published by the Maariv newspaper today said they thought the agreement would accelerate Iran's development of a nuclear weapon, not prevent it as claimed by the powers. Asked "Do you support independent military action by Israel against Iran if such action is needed to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon?" 47 percent said yes, 35 percent said no and 18 per cent expressed no opinion. Asked: "In your view, does the agreement that was signed bring Iran closer to obtaining a nuclear weapons capability?" 71 per cent said yes.
Note: Israel was founded by terrorist and has instigated nothing but war.....that is fact not opinion.

Framing Iran: Thomas Friedman’s War Wish

Certain facts must be kept in mind. Iran has never had a program designed to build a nuclear bomb. You wouldn't know from his column that Iran is a party to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), subjecting it to intrusive inspections for many years. During those years the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has unfailingly certified that Iran has diverted not one uranium atom to military purposes ... The nonthreat has been affirmed by U.S. and Israeli intelligence ... Unlike Iran, Israel refuses to sign the NPT and allow IAEA inspections. In other words, Iran has been demonized and framed.

Jul 22 05:28


It's now time to begin dispelling the miasma of lies about Iran promoted by neoconservatives and their house media. First, Iran has never had nuclear weapons, though polls show many Americans believe they did. The same fib factory that spread lies about Iraq's non-existent nuclear weapons has churned out a steady stream of disinformation about Iran that was as shameless as it was false ... Israel, whose secret nuclear program was begun with help from France and aided by technology and uranium stolen from the United States, has the chutzpah to warn the world about Iran, which has so far only a civilian nuclear energy program. Israel is believed to have 80-100 nuclear warheads ...

Poll Finds That If Trump Runs As An Independent, Democrats Will Win In A Landslide

In a general election trial heat, Clinton leads Bush, the GOP fundraising leader, by a slight 50-44 percent among registered voters. But with Trump as an independent candidate that goes to 46-30-20 percent, Clinton-Bush-Trump – with Trump drawing support disproportionately from Bush, turning a 6-point Clinton advantage into 16 points.

Which is what he will ultimately CAPITALIZE on. He'll agree to bow out for a price. The man has no desire to be president. He wants to force the Republicans to pay him, either with cash or legislation, to NOT run as an independent.

But it was not until he had to teach his son about abstaining from masturbation — known as “guarding the covenant” in Jewish law — that he decided to make a film investigating the subject.

11-minute video: Japan awakes to being an economic slave colony of the US, approaching revolution

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

hat tip: Luke Rudkowski of WeAreChange and economist Marc Abela

Economist Marc Abela explains in the video that Japanese are awakening to the fact that their government serves interests other than those of the Japanese people:

Prime Minister Abe works for increasing and ongoing financial support of US unlawful and lie-began wars, including keeping the US military on bases in Japan.
Abe works for increased domestic surveillance similar to the US and UK.
Japan, as all former imperialist nations, creates what they use for money as debt. These mechanics are like adding negative numbers forever, and cause increasing, unpayable, tragic-comic total debt.
Despite Japan’s debt, they are a leading buyer of US debt with $1.2 trillion.
Robotics is not leveraged to decrease work time, but used to drive wages down and cause the people to work ever-increasing hours to survive.

Chattanooga Gunman Yet Another Mass Shooter on Antidepressants: Are You Even Surprised?

By now most people know the basic facts, at least what are called “facts” as reported by the mainstream media regarding the Tennessee mass shooting.

According to reports, last Thursday twenty-four-year-old Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez opened fire at a Chattanooga army recruiting center, injuring a police officer. Then he opened fire at a navy recruiting center about five miles away, killing four servicemen and wounding another three, one of whom later passed away. All told, five people lost their lives before the Abdulazeez was shot and killed by police.

By now, it shouldn’t surprise anyone much that the media is reporting Abdulazeez was depressed and taking medications for it, medications which he frequently started and stopped.

Driver Pulled Over for Hanging an Air Freshener in His Car

It all started when Michigan resident Richard Houghton was driving through Wisconsin, where he was pulled over by a police officer. The reason? He apparently had an air freshener hanging from his rear view mirror, and a GPS unit on his dash, which according to the police officer, were obstructing his view of the road and were thus illegal under state law. A subsequent search of the vehicle yielded a small amount of marijuana. Houghton was arrested and charged with 2 years of probation, and his car was seized under civil forfeiture laws.

China Finally Reveals How Much Gold It Has

For the first time in six years, China has updated the status of their national gold reserves. As part of their move to join the IMF’s basket of currencies, they were asked to come clean on the amount of gold they’ve accumulated in recent years. However, the numbers they’ve given have left investors feeling skeptical.

Officially, they now have 1,658 tons of gold. The last time that number was updated in April of 2009, it stood at 1,054 tons, which is roughly a 60% increase, and places their gold haul above Russia’s. That’s pretty impressive, but it falls far short of what investors had expected. When they first announced that they were going to reveal their stockpile two months ago, the most conservative estimates placed their gold holdings at 3000 tons, or double what they recently reported. Due to the fact that China is the largest gold producer, and nearly the largest gold importer, their current numbers are dubious at best.

The United Nations approved UN accreditation Monday for the London-based Palestinian Return Center in a defeat for Israel which claims the organization is affiliated with Hamas and "openly promotes terrorism."

The center, which describes itself as an independent consultancy dedicated to find a solution for the Palestinian refugees in accordance with international law, has denied the Israeli allegations. It announced last Friday that it was starting legal action against Israel's UN Mission for alleged defamation.

BRICS bank opens for operations in Shanghai

BRICS New Development Bank (NDB) has opened for operations in Shanghai, and will seek to deploy its $50 billion initial capital to fund infrastructure and sustainable development projects.

"Our objective is not to challenge the existing system as it is but to improve and complement the system in our own way,” NDB President Kundapur Vaman Kamath said.

Lords and Vassals: A quick update on America's Empire

America's relationship with its "allies" can in fact be characterized as a collection of feudal relationships, with the nature of the relationship being very much dependent on the power of the vassals. There are in fact several categories of vassals. Category I includes countries like UK and Israel which actually enjoy a pretty privileged relationship.

Greece – Harbinger of Global Financial Collapse

Economic grace of ‘Social Credit’: national dividend and compensated retail prices to facilitate consumer goods distribution in an age of robotics

*hyperlinks/video live at source*

by guest author Wallace Klinck

“The unacknowledged, but obvious, truth is that unnecessary work, imposed by either edict or contrived financial legerdemain, is slavery and servitude—totally irrational and immoral. Every engineer worthy of the name is trying to eliminate the need for human effort as a factor of production while every witless or hypocritical politician, pressured by the financial powers above and an insecure and uncomprehending population below, is professing, at least, to promote policies designed to ‘put people back to work.’” (from the below article)

U.S. Murder Rate Plunges as Guns in Public Proliferate

The number of Americans carrying concealed firearms has exploded in recent years, and contrary to the narratives and fearmongering peddled by anti-gun-rights activists, the sky did not fall. In fact, according to the most recent data, not only did the sky not fall, murder rates and violent crime over the same period have plunged dramatically — demolishing the claims of gun-control proponents, while bolstering the pragmatic case for even broader proliferation of public firearms ownership.

Austerity Measures: Who Is Really Paying for the Bailout in Greece?

As the collapse of Greece accelerates, the most vulnerable citizens are paying for the bad decisions of the government.

Despite the wishes of the people of Greece, who voted overwhelmingly against accepting the "help" 10 days ago, the government has caved to the EU and is negotiating the terms of a third "bailout." In the agreement, Chancellor Angela Merkel of Germany has deemed that none of the debt will be forgiven, but the payments could potentially be stretched out over a longer period of time.

Of course, the ins and outs of these billions of dollars don't really mean that much to the individual people of Greece. And therein lie the lessons for the rest of the world.

What's Wrong with Our Monetary System and How to Fix It

But money is too important to be left to the bankers. There is no good reason to give any private group a lucrative monopoly over the creation of money; money creation should be the public service most people mistakenly believe it to be. Further, privatized money creation allows a few large banks and financial institutions not only to profit by simply making bookkeeping entries, but to direct overall investment in the economy to their corporate cronies, not the public at large.

Ordinary people can get the financing they need only on burdensome if not ruinous terms, leaving them as debt peons weighed down by mortgages, student loans, auto loans, credit card balances, etc. The interest payments extracted from these loans feed the private investment machine of Wall Street finance, represented by the ultimate creditor class: the notorious “one percenters.”

What Donald Trump was up to while John McCain was suffering as a prisoner of war

It was the spring of 1968, and Donald Trump had it good.
He was 21 years old and handsome with a full head of hair. He avoided the Vietnam War draft on his way to earning an Ivy League degree. He was fond of fancy dinners, beautiful women and outrageous clubs. Most important, he had a job in his father’s real estate company and a brain bursting with money-making ideas that would make him a billionaire.

A decade ago, it was nearly inconceivable that in 2015, gay marriage would be legal across the US and marijuana fully legal in four states plus the District of Columbia. Yet it happened. It happened because citizens who wanted change led, from the bottom up, often through citizens initiatives.

Israelis, Saudis Considering Attack on Iran in Wake of Nuke Deal

By Brandon Turbeville

I have argued from the very beginning of the US-Iran nuclear talks that the diplomacy taking place was nothing more than theatre to be used later in the rush to war as evidence that the US did “everything in its power” to avoid confrontation. Considering the years of propaganda surrounding Iran and its nuclear program, it should be clear that the recent US-Iran nuclear deal was nothing more than a show...

Should Drug and Alcohol Tests Be Required In Officer-Involved Shootings?

Seeing as police killed more Americans in 2014 than all U.S. mass shootings combined, getting to the bottom of the problem and increasing accountability are more important than ever. Drug testing police involved in shootings is an argument up for debate in the state of North Carolina - at least it is currently up for scrutiny and speculation.

An investigation conducted in part by Greensboro's News & Record found that it is incredibly rare for a North Carolina officer to have a drug test after an officer involved shooting - even the fatal ones.
