EU's Tusk Urges Tsipras to 'Seek Help Among Friends, Not Enemies'

Donald Tusk urged Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras to turn to friends for help but the president of the European Council did not specify who those were.

It is clear who Tusk is referring to. He is attempting to dissuade Greece from entertaining any notions of partnership with Russia. In reality, Greece has no friends among the majority of the European Parliament and Commission, who are in the case of the former are little more than serial gravy-train passengers. In the case of the latter, they are unelected politburo-style bureaucrats and banksters' puppets. On the other hand, Greece has long-standing cultural ties with Russia.

Tsipras Slams Austerity at EU as Greece Requests New Bailout

Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras called for the eurozone to reach a deal with sustainable solutions to the Greek crisis in a speech at the European Parliament Wednesday, saying the “austerity laboratory” that Greece has become has been a failure for the country’s people.

“The simple fact is that we have to face and accept that the majority of the Greek people feels that they have no other choice other than to demand that they be given a way out of this impasse and this dead end," said Tsipras, adding that poverty and public debt have soared with the austerity “experiment” imposed on Greece.

The Facts That Gun Grabbers Can’t Wrap Their Minds Around

It seems like there are irreconcilable differences between those who are pro-Second Amendment, and those who advocate gun control, and I think it goes beyond their personal beliefs. They think about the world in fundamentally different ways, which becomes plainly obvious when you see how these two groups compile data on homicides and gun ownership. Let’s take a look at how anti-gun folks see these numbers:

Higher ownership of guns in the United States has been linked to more violent crimes and overall homicides, according to a new study by researchers at Harvard University.

I was intrigued when I first read that. I don’t think it would change my overall position on the rights of human beings if this were true, but I’d like to know if the statistics I give readers are true or not, so I decided to read more into this study.

Hillary Clinton: “People Should and Do Trust Me”

Below are the highlights pieced together from what has been publicized as the first exclusive one-on-one sit-down interview with Hillary since she announced her presidential run.

It’s painful to watch (and not just because it’s Hillary either). It’s like watching someone full-to-bursting with nearly four decades of lies and scandals try to act like a normal person in under five awkward, cagey, and defensive minutes.

The first cringe-inducer?

When CNN’s Brianna Keilar asks her, “Do you see any role that you’ve had in the sentiment that we’ve seen where people are questioning whether you are trustworthy?”

Hillary responds with that’s just a theme that’s been used against her and her husband for many, many years.

Just a theme used against you guys for many, many years? “Gee, I wonder why that is,” said no one ever (*cough Clinton body count *cough).

According to the CDC, heroin use in the U.S. has been growing at an "alarming" rate, with overdose fatalities doubling in the past few years. Darwin nods approvingly

Heroin use in the United States has grown at an "alarming rate," resulting in double the overdose deaths between 2011 and 2013, health officials said Tuesday.
A report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration found use of the recreational drug increased between 2002 and 2013 across multiple demographic groups -- gender, age and income level. The study found the biggest increase in use, though, was among groups who historically had lower rates of use, including women, and people with private insurance and higher incomes.

Corruption has been the coveted jewel in everybody’s crown since antiquity. Aristotelian philosophy believed that everybody who had power could become corrupt. Nietzsche said that we commit corruption only because there is financial gain. In the 19th century when those that had the power made politics apparently accessible even to the poor by paying politicians a salary in our democracies where already paving the way for their own wealth accumulation. Paying salaries to politicians for the first time so that the wealthy did not have the monopoly of the control of the function of decision making? Were they kidding us back then into believing that politics was democratic? Of course they were pulling the wool over our eyes into making us believe that everybody, whatever their status, would get to govern the country. What they were really doing was making sure that they were able to siphon of the greenbacks from the state, but this time making it look as if it were all above board.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Corruption has eaten the heart out of alleged representative government here in the US.

We used to be a government of the people by the people and for the people; we are now a goverment of the corporations, by the corporations, and for the corporations which own the American political process as never before.

The Kabuki-like process of elections in this country is a complete farce.

We the People never actually get a real choice in candidates, other than those which the corporations have chosen, because they know those candidates will "deliver" on their agendas.

Remember President Obama saying that he would have "the most transparent administration in history"?!? Wow, did that turn out to be a piece of hypocritical irony, looking at what has happened since President Obama took office.

Look at the secrecy involved in these "fast track" trade agreements, which were corporately purchased through donations to Congressional representatives.

Look at UPIgate; Benghazigate; Fast&Furiousgate; IRSgate; and the continued messes in Iraq, Syria, Somalia and Libya.

Can you possibly tell me, with a straight face, that the actions taken to remedy these issues were done with "transparency"?!?

Thinking people would have to say "no" to this question. In fact," HELL, NO!!" would be a more honest response.

And please don't think I am criticising the Democrats over and above the Republicans: they are equally complicit, for what they have done for their corporate masters, at the expense of their alleged constituents.

Greece – The Triumph of Democracy – the first day of a New Beginning

Congratulations! – With a resounding “OXI” = “No” – with 61% the Greek rejected the troika imposed austerity. They joined a majority of economists worldwide, including from the IMF, who also know that austerity doesn’t help recovery – and certainly doesn’t wipe out debt, the noose around a country’s neck.

But – what does the decisive no-vote mean for the 39% yes-voters? – Do they want more of austerity? – Hardly. Or were they manipulated with fear-mongering by the mostly privately owned western media, which also dominate Greece?– Blackmailed by the threats of Brussels? – Were they afraid of what’s next? – Western presstitute media propaganda for a “yes” vote, spiked with fear, threats and purposeful confusion was horrendous.

A Greek Tragedy Playing Out Today

By Catherine J. Frompovich

The Greek people have been known throughout history for two social contributions: developing the form of governance known as “democracy” and for their classic drama plays, which usually are referred to as “Greek tragedies.”

Little did the Greek people think that they would be living a very real life, true Greek tragedy that has unfolded with uncanny drama: Banks closed for a week, maybe longer; 60 Euros as a “daily ATM allowance”; all while probably becoming a poster child for what may be the eventual undoing of the European Union. How so?...

These same people dare to lecture the elderly in Greece that they must work into their old age so that these shysters can get their pound of flesh.

The Subtly Hostile Message Putin Sent Obama on Independence Day

Saturday was a rather slow news day. The crisis in Greece was on a brief hiatus before the Sunday vote, and most Americans were busy celebrating Independence Day. The only thing that was widely reported was Putin’s 4th of July message to President Obama, in which he offered an olive branch to the US. “In his message of congratulations, the Russian President noted that, despite the differences between the two countries, Russian-American relations remain the most important factor of international stability and security.” The message mostly interpreted as a kind of “Happy 4th of July” to the President.

More Wag the Dog: Obama’s “Spontaneous” Singing of Amazing Grace at Charleston Eulogy Not Spontaneous at All

In the weeks since the Charleston church shooting, that event has been politicized to the maximum amount possible for gun control pushes and race baiting.

One very “Wag The Dog” moment came when Obama decided to personally give the eulogy for South Carolina Senator Clementa Pinckney who was killed in the shooting.

The mainstream media tried to spin Obama’s eulogy as one of the most amazing things the president has done in his existence on this planet. Pundits left and right slobbered all over the eulogy and the idea that Obama was so moved during his delivery that he spontaneously burst into the song “Amazing Grace”.

Turns out, it wasn't spontaneous at all. The media, by the way, seemed to forget the whole thing was even a funeral or the man who died and was the reason for the entire event in the first place. All media attention and focus (and drool) went to Obama's staged singing.

Greek ‘No’ Vote Spurs Wider Resistance

Greek voters rebelled against Germany and the dominant powers of Europe by rejecting demands for more austerity, but the Greek resistance also is resonating across the Continent, emboldening other hard-pressed countries tired of Depression-like conditions.

Despite an unprecedented fear campaign, brave Greeks plunged the European Union into a moment of reckoning with a deafening “no” to “bullying,” “terrorism,” and “humiliation” – or more precisely, 61 percent voted against and 39 percent for creditors’ terms that would have condemned not just Greeks, but millions of other Europeans to another decade of austerity and hardship.

Or will they remain unbending, force Greece into official bankruptcy and inexorably out of the euro?

'Hackers' give orders to German missile battery

The attack took place on anti-aircraft ‘Patriot’ missiles on the Syrian border. The American-made weapons had been stationed there by the Bundeswehr (German army) to protect Nato ally Turkey.

According to the civil service magazine, the missile system carried out “unexplained” orders. It was not immediately clear when these orders were carried out and what they were.

The magazine speculates about two weak spots in the missile system which could be exploited by hackers.

One such weakness is the Sensor-Shooter-Interoperability (SSI) which exchanges real time information between the missile launcher and its control system.

The second exposed point is a computer chip which controls the guidance of the weapon.

Gold And Silver Are Paper-Slammed – Is The System Collapsing?

By Dave Kranzler

When a thoroughly corrupt government wants to try and hide something from the public, they exert an all-out effort to misdirect and cover-up. The financial markets are no different. It’s been obvious to anyone with one good eye and one brain cell that the puppet-masters behind the Wall Street/DC “curtain” have been propping up the Dow/S&P 500 and exerting forceful downward pressure on the price of gold and silver. Why gold and silver? Because gold and silver, for 5,000 years, have been the world’s “alarm system” alerting everyone when something is terribly wrong...

Obama Talks Escalation, But Officials Say ISIS War Strategy Unchanged

In his latest protracted speech about the ISIS war, President Obama insisted that the war is continuing to go well, citing thousands of ISIS fighters killed, and talked up escalating airstrikes against ISIS in Raqqa, insisting that the recent attacks “proved” ISIS would eventually be destroyed.

That “eventually” could be a long time indeed, as Obama described the conflict as a “generational struggle” that would be one at some unspecified point in the future. In the meantime, it’s all airstrikes, and bragging about body counts.

Pentagon officials, however, say that the basic ISIS war strategy are unchanged, beyond an increase in the number of airstrikes in recent days. Officials continue to maintain that, despite mounting losses on the ground, the existing strategy is the right one.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I woould like to kindly remind Pentagon spokespersons of one major fact here: you cannot win what is essentially a ground war from the air.

So I have to ask the questions: what is really going on here, and what is really the desired outcome?!?

The Supreme Court’s top justice and two associate justices have repeatedly ruled in cases involving companies in which they owned stock, according to a court watchdog group.

The organization Fix the Court says in a report (pdf) that Chief Justice John Roberts and Associate Justices Stephen Breyer and Samuel Alito have created potential conflicts of interest by participating in decisions that potentially affected their stock portfolio.

Fix the Court reviewed cases heard by the court between 2009 and 2013, and focused on 19 cases in which the three justices owned stock in companies that filed “friend of the court” or amicus curiae briefs. The report says that, in those cases, 68% of the time Roberts, Breyer and Alito sided with the companies in which they owned stock.

The other six justices were omitted from the study because they don’t own a significant amount of common stock in individual companies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The lack of ethics, in these (alleged) Justices not recusing themselves from cases in which they had financial interests, is breathtakingly wrong.

But, as we are aware, in this country, the word "Justice" has thoroughly devolved into "Just-US", meaning that people with power and money in this country believe that they are completely above the law, and that the law is only meant for the "little people".

Sealed HSBC Report Shows U.S. Managers Battling Cleanup Squad

HSBC Holdings Plc, smarting from a $1.9 billion fine for providing banking to money launderers and sanctions-dodgers, promised U.S. officials it would clean up its act.
Within a year, its reform efforts met resistance from leaders of HSBC’s U.S. investment-banking unit -- some of whom mounted a campaign of bullying, footdragging and discrediting against in-house watchdogs, according to previously unreported details from a report by the bank’s court-appointed monitor.
HSBC agreed to submit to the monitor’s oversight in late 2012, as part of a pact with the U.S. Justice Department that required it to bolster its in-house controls. Armed with that directive, HSBC compliance officers singled out a half-dozen clients whose activities could put the London-based bank at risk -- including a Saudi bank that had been linked to Sept. 11, 2001, hijackers -- and advised the U.S. investment-banking division to consider dropping those relationships.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would almost bet that HSBC Holdings is not alone in resorting to this kind of cover-up behaviour.

There is an elephant in the room. Nobody is mentioning the starkly obvious truth. If we had not invaded Iraq, 7/7 would never have happened. Let me say it again, because it is not sayable within the corporate media and establishment consensus. If we had not invaded Iraq, 7/7 would never have happened.

An Infographic Showing What Male Privilege Really Looks Like

Important to note is that this data does not aim to disprove any feminist arguments. There is data supporting their narratives that rape, domestic violence, and sexism do exist in some capacity (that capacity being the main point of argument). However their narrative is that it must be great to be male, and not have these problems associated with one’s gender.

Therein lies the issue. In reality, there are pros and cons to being either gender, and the cons of being a male are consistently downplayed. Here is what it’s really like to be a male in the US…

Leaks reveal how Ottawa cultivated ties before $15-billion Saudi arms deal

The Canadian government carefully courted Saudi Arabia in the years leading up to an unprecedented $15-billion arms sale to Riyadh brokered by Ottawa that remains shrouded in secrecy, documents show.

Secret Saudi government documents made public last week by Wikileaks offer a glimpse of how the Harper Conservatives sought closer relations with the Saudis – an effort that paid off in 2014 with a massive deal to sell made-in-Canada armoured fighting vehicles to the Arab state.

The transaction, backed by Canadian taxpayers, has come under fire because Saudi Arabia has one of the worst human rights records in the world today.

San Francisco under fire for being a 'sanctuary city' after illegal immigrant shot dead woman at random just TWO MONTHS after he was freed by police

The murder of a woman at a popular San Francisco pier allegedly by an illegal immigrant could have been avoided, federal immigration officials said Monday.

The suspect, Francisco Sanchez - a Mexican national who has been deported five times and is accused of shooting Kathryn Steinle, 32 - was in the custody of the San Francisco Sheriff's Department on March 26, but was let go, it has been revealed.

Sanchez, 45, was brought in on a decade-old drug charge, but was released on April 15 when the charges were dropped - just over two months before the murder on July 1.

In a statement released today to ABC News, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) said they were not notified that Sanchez had been released - at which he would have been deported.

4th of July from Hell: 40 blacks attack innocent white man in downtown Cincinnati simply for being white

Can you imagine the media outcry if 40 whites attacked a completely innocent black man? So far news outlets such as Salon, Slate, and Raw Story are completely censoring this story as it does not fit their narrative.

We now live in a country where the mainstream media labels fears over martial law in America racist while at the same time completely ignoring large groups of young African-Americans attacking whites for no other reason than the color of their skin.

The ONLY way we can put a stop to this divide and conquer plan is to expose racial crimes committed by ALL races as well as to continue to speak out against the real power structure that is hurting all poor Americans.

“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of the New England Journal of Medicine.” – Dr. Marcia Angell, a physician and longtime editor-in-chief of the New England Medical Journal (NEMJ) (source) “The case against science is straightforward: much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness.” – Dr. Richard Horton, the current editor-in-chief of the Lancet – considered to be one of the most well respected peer-reviewed medical journals in the world.

A leading maker of solar panels in the United States backed by Goldman Sachs has been using prison labor to help keep its production costs down. Suniva Inc., based in Georgia, contracts with UNICOR, the name of the 80-year-old Federal Prison Industries, so inmates can assist with the assembly of solar panels. Company officials told Reuters that prison labor accounts for only a small portion of its manufacturing operations, less than 10%. They say Suniva factories in Georgia and Michigan employing 350 people produce most of the panels. Several hundred inmates make solar panels at prisons in Sheridan, Oregon and Otisville, New York, reported the news organization.
