California Man Gets 35 Years in Prison for Sexually Abusing Niece

A former pharmacy technician who sexually abused his 5-year-old niece and created a video montage of explicit images of the child will spend the next 35 years in prison, a San Diego judge ruled Friday.

Damian Clemente Mora, 31, of El Centro, Calif., pleaded guilty in March to two counts of sexual exploitation of a child.

According to sentencing documents, investigators discovered that Mora had photographed and videotaped his niece 512 times in sexually explicit positions and stored the images on his digital devices, including his computer, camera, table and a thumb drive.

The abuse happened over a two-year period.

Investigators said Mora compiled the hundreds of images into a disturbing eight-minute video montage that included upbeat music and an off-color subtitle that read, “Starring: A Loving Uncle.”

Prosecutors said Mora boasted about the photos “to other pedophiles and cavalierly wrote about finding additional victims.”

Malaysia wants the ‘missing’ Ukrainian ATC tapes

UKRAINE has denied that its State Security Service (SBU) had seized the air-to-ground transmission tapes between its air traffic controllers and Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 on the day the jetliner was shot down.

Its ambassador to Malaysia Ihor Humennyi, in an exclusive interview with the New Straits Times, said that reports alleging that the SBU had seized the recordings had not been independently verified or confirmed by Kiev.

“There is no proof or any evidence that the tapes were confiscated by the SBU.

“I only read this in the newspapers.”

Almost immediately after the shootdown, several news agencies, including the British Broadcasting Corporation, carried reports saying that Ukraine’s SBU security service had confiscated recordings of conversations between Ukrainian air traffic control officers and the crew of the doomed airliner.

Hey Israel STOP the Genocide in Gaza — Worldwide protests

Comment: Annie Robbins:
Occupier, I fully support non violent resistance. however, in the face of the violent genocidal intent of the occupier and the actions taken to ignite this latest round of violence (WB pogroms, killings, destruction, arrests detainment no doubt leading to torture) i think Palestinians should be able and willing to defend themselves and be proud of their achievements, efforts to protect themselves under siege, oppression. that includes procuring weaponry.

The political dimensions of the current conflict in Iraq

Thus, it is clear that on one side there is the United States, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, other Arabian monarchies and Turkey pressing for the removal of al-Maliki and the creation of a coalition government that would be loyal to the West and the Gulf Coast States; on the other side there is Russia, China, Iran, Syria (although the second is not particularly active) who understood the inherent dangers in the spread of Islamic radicalism and terrorism in the Middle East.

In recent days, the offensive thrust of ISIS has lost momentum. The tactic of “Blitzkrieg” used by the Islamists with the possible fall of Baghdad didn’t succeed. But almost every day they manage to capture at least something, but at the same time, in some places they have been in retreat. In general, the militants halted their assault on Baghdad, focusing instead on oil and gas infrastructure.

$1.2 Million Medical Bill Sent to Family…Because of Obamacare Typo

A Las Vegas family has been slammed with nearly $1.2 million in medical bills due to an Obamacare exchange issue.

In October, Kynell and Amber Smith bought insurance from Anthem Blue Cross through Nevada Health Link, their state’s exchange. They made two premium payments in January. Initially, their monthly premium was set at $1,575. Nevada Health Link contacted the Smiths in March to notify them that they were overpaying and needed a new policy. That reduced their premium to $1,296.

US/UK/Israel ‘Empire’ same as Roman Empire: They make a desert and call it peace

*hyperlinks live at source*
Let’s examine connections between the empires of Rome and modern US/UK/Israel to discover possible solutions to restore republic from empire in our world of the present.

Roman Empire: History teaches that the Roman Republic devolved into psychopathic dictatorial empire; characterized by oligarchic families competing among themselves for power and wealth within vicious inner-circles.

This occurred while proclaiming to the public that their government still upheld the highest ideals of their Republic, and proclaiming expanding empire was only and always in “self-defense.”

Emperor Domitian’s assassination in 96 AD (among ~22 murdered emperors), allowed historian Tacitus to write The Agricola, a biographical text of his father-in-law contrasting claimed virtue of Roman military and citizenry with the emperor’s utterly corrupt despotism.

Pushing Ukraine to the Brink

by MIKE WHITNEY
“The unipolar world model has failed. People everywhere have shown their desire to choose their own destiny, preserve their own cultural identity, and oppose the West’s attempts at military, financial, political and ideological domination.”
- Vladimir Putin

Washington’s policy in Ukraine is such a mess, it really makes one wonder about the competence of the people who come up with these wacko ideas. It’s crazy.

Europe and Russia are a perfect fit. Europe needs gas to heat its homes and run its machinery. Russia has gas to sell and needs the money to strengthen its economy. It’s a win-win situation. What Europe and Russia don’t need is the United States. In fact, the US is the problem. As long as US meddling persists, there’s going to be social unrest, division, and war. It’s that simple.

Israel Has Morally Compromised its Supporters

Israel and the West are complicit in mass murder in Gaza. Should they suffer the same fate as Gazans,they won't have any moral recourse.

by Henry Makow PhD.

As friction with Russia threatens to escalate, this isn't a good time for Zionists to embrace the principle of collective punishment and to relinquish their moral authority.

Yet this is exactly what has happened to those who have endorsed Israel's abominable and disproportionate assault on Gaza which has killed 1900 people, 70% of whom were civilians, including 415 children.

Why have Israel's actions been so egregious, given the lack of genuine provocation?

More than 10,000 Gazans have been injured. 373,000 children require psychological support. 500,000 Palestinians have been displaced with 187,000 still living in U.N. emergency shelters. An estimated 10,000 homes have been completely destroyed, and 30,000 homes partially destroyed.

Chaos reigns and spreads as enraged leaders in the US, Europe and their clients and allies pursue genocidal wars. Witness mercenary wars in Syria. Witness Israel’s terror bombing of Gaza. Witness the proxy wars in the Ukraine, Pakistan, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Somalia.

Malaysian press charges Ukraine government shot down MH 17

Well the Malaysians have spoken out! Ukraine shot down their airliner and murdered
hundreds of people in an attempt to start WW3!

By Alex Lantier
9 August 2014

A Thursday article in the New Straits Times, Malaysia’s flagship English-language newspaper, charged the US- and European-backed Ukrainian regime in Kiev with shooting down Malaysian Airlines flight MH 17 in east Ukraine last month. Given the tightly controlled character of the Malaysian media, it appears that the accusation that Kiev shot down MH17 has the imprimatur of the Malaysian state.

Organized Community Defense Is America’s Last Hope

Not long ago, I felt compelled to address the idea of self defense as a moral imperative in an article titled “Violence In The Face Of Tyranny Is Often Necessary.” My intention was to perhaps undo some of the propaganda conditioning that Americans have suffered over the decades that has taught them that “all” forms of violent action are “immoral”, including the defense of one’s person, one’s property, and one’s freedom.

The recent uprising at Bundy Ranch in Bunkerville, Nev., confirmed my predictions that many Americans are tired of playing by rules chartered by the establishment and are ready to take measures outside of the boundaries set by the system. The reality is that change will never come without consequence and cost, and when faced with an entrenched tyranny, if the citizenry cannot present the threat of physical consequence to their oppressors, the oppressors have no motivation to relinquish power.

Where did the summer go? Torrential rain and gale force winds cause flash flooding and power cuts.... and the worst is still to come with Hurricane Bertha to hit tomorrow morning

Torrential rain and gale force winds are likely to hit swathes of England and Wales - with severe weather warnings in place across most of the country.

The West on the wrong path (says publisher of Germany’s leading financial newspaper Handelsblatt)

Paul Craig Roberts sees the publishing of this article by Gabor Steingart, publisher of Germany’s financial newspaper Handelsblatt, as a hopeful sign that EU residents are awakening to the realization that they are being railroaded by their pusillanimous politicians into another unnecessary war.

If the West had judged the then US government which marched into Iraq without a resolution by the UN and without proof of the existence of “WMDs“ by the same standards as today Putin, then George W. Bush would have immediately been banned from entering the EU. The foreign investments of Warren Buffett should have been frozen, the export of vehicles of the brands GM, Ford, and Chrysler banned.

The American tendency to verbal and then also military escalation, the isolation, demonization, and attacking of enemies has not proven effective. The last successful major military action the US conducted was the Normandy landing. Everything else – Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan – was a clear failure. Moving NATO units towards the Polish border and thinking about arming Ukraine is a continuation of a lack of diplomacy by the military means.

Further Evidence that Obama Is a Republican

Barack Obama is now a deadweight to Democrats in Congress who are set to bear the blame from voters for policies that Obama and the Republicans in Congress have actually caused; and here would be the only opportunity for congressional Democrats finally to say: “Enough now, of rule by Obama and other Republicans! Elect me to fight them!”

Tell your Democratic Representative in Congress: Do it or else! Or else the Democratic Party dies and America will continue to be ruled, at the Presidential level, only by two conservative Parties.

Polls show that Obama has moved not only American politics but American public opinion to the right, except on "social" issues, which aren't critically important for the aristocracy anyway.

For Mexican geopolitical expert, Alfredo Jalife-Rahme, the simultaneity of the events illuminates their meaning: soon after announcing the creation of an alternative to the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank, that is to say the dollar, Russia is having to face at the same time the accusation of having downed the Malaysia Airlines jet, the Israeli attack on Gaza backed by US and UK military intelligence, the chaos in Libya and the Islamic State offensive in the Levant.

FLASHBACK - The Tytler Cycle Revisited

"A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship."
“The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:

From bondage to spiritual faith;
From spiritual faith to great courage;
From courage to liberty;
From liberty to abundance;
From abundance to complacency;
From complacency to apathy;
From apathy to dependence;
From dependence back into bondage

Russian Sanctions Expose West's "Global Disorder"

Tony Cartalucci
Activist Post

In a report by the Sydney Morning Herald titled, "Julie Bishop says 'petulant' Russian sanctions reflect its lack of acceptance for role in MH17 disaster," it claims:

"Foreign Minister Julie Bishop says Russia's "petulant" trade sanctions on Australian food imports is yet another example of Moscow trying to evade responsibility for the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17."

However, Bishop fails to indicate why Russia should or would accept responsibility for downing an aircraft when no evidence whatsoever even suggests such culpability. Canberra, Washington, London, and Brussels are citing dubious YouTube videos, Facebook, and other forms of "social media," while Russia has provided radar and satellite pictures and has repeatedly called for and supported a proper, independent, impartial investigation into the incident...

"We Will Raise the Flag of Allah in the White House" ISIS Warns America

The Islamic State has warned the United States that it plans to attack America and raise "the flag of Allah in the White House."

Newsmax reports:

"I say to America that the Islamic caliphate has been established," Abu Mosa, a spokesman for the terror group, also known as ISIS, told Vice Media in a video interview posted online Thursday. "Don’t be cowards and attack us with drones. Instead send your soldiers, the ones we humiliated in Iraq. We will humiliate them everywhere, God willing, and we will raise the flag of Allah in the White House."

US senator filibusters live coverage of powerful Palestinian testimonies

On Friday, fifteen-year-old Tariq Abukhdeir spoke at a hearing on Capitol Hill about the brutal beating he endured at the hands of Israeli police in early July.

The purpose of the hearing was to address Israeli impunity and US complicity in crimes against Palestinians. Tariq was one of six panelists to address the room, which was overflowing with congressional staffers.

Given the choke-hold pro-Israel lobbying organizations like AIPAC have on US elected officials, it is plausible Boxer’s maneuvering was orchestrated to suppress the reach of an open and honest conversation about Israeli criminality. READ MORE

Implausible Deniability - West's ISIS Terror Hordes in Iraq

Tony Cartalucci
Activist Post

The US has pledged assistance for victims of and even possible "airstrikes" against terrorists who have surrounded and threaten to eradicate thousands of religious minorities in Iraq. However, the terrorists themselves are a product of US foreign policy in the Middle East and North Africa, and instrumental in achieving Western objectives across the region. Punitive strikes and aid to the victims of what is essentially a Western mercenary army is part of maintaining plausible deniability...

'They call it the Dreamliner - it was more like a nightmare': Couple thought they would 'drop into the Atlantic' as holiday jet they were on plummeted 500ft-a-minute when engine stopped mid-air

Launched in December 2009, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner was heralded as the future of commercial flight. But the project was dogged by problems from the start..

Thomson is not the only airline to struggle with Dreamliner problems and, last month, two Air India jets destined for Birmingham and Sydney reported serious faults just before take-off.

In February, a computer malfunction aboard a Dreamliner also forced LOT Polish Airlines to call off a transatlantic flight from Warsaw.

Farmers use social media to stop food waste

"..He said he was shocked to learn how inefficient farming is, after seeing stacked boxes of unsold fruits and vegetables that were destined for the compost heap or chicken coop.

"It hit me across the head like a 2-by-4. And for the first time I had noticed that it was a reoccurring pattern for our farm," he said.

This spring researchers from the University of California, Davis reported that it could cost the agricultural industry as much as $1.7 billion US dollars as the drought comes up to through its third year. Farmers often simply can't sell their produce before it spoils or it doesn't meet stringent aesthetic standards set by supermarkets.

But Papadopoulos had an idea: to distribute to consumers the food that would otherwise be thrown out. The answer, he reasoned, lay in social media. "I decided to launch a series of social media experiments," he recalls.

Despite claims that anti-Semitism is on the rise in the UK, it's Israel's critics who need protection

The horrors of Gaza continue to unfold after the guns fall silent, with thousands of displaced victims scoured the ruins of their bombed homes for whatever meagre salvage they can find, wondering what tomorrow may bring.

Around the world, Jewish communities are now trying to regain the sympathy they forfeited by blindly supporting the devastating Israeli offensive. The traditional way of doing this is to announce a rise in anti-Semitism and whipping up fears of “another holocaust”.

The latest harbinger of “holocaust” was the decision by the Tricycle Theatre in North London not to host this year’s Jewish Film Festival unless the festival gave up funding from the Israeli Embassy. The theatre cited its principle of political impartially and offered to replace the lost fund, but the festival refused. There followed a media storm claiming – you guessed it – “outrageous anti-Semitism”.

HHS on the hunt for HealthCare.gov emails Issa wants

A senior health department official under Republican scrutiny for the flawed rollout of HealthCare.gov likely deleted some emails now sought by congressional investigators, msnbc has learned.

The Department of Health and Human Services planned on Thursday to alert Congress and the National Archives and Records Administration, which is charged with enforcing federal record keeping laws, about the problem, according to a copy of a letter being sent to Archives.

There is no evidence that Marilyn Tavenner, an Obama appointee who leads the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, intentionally hid information or deleted records; rather, the gaps appear to be the result of sloppy record keeping. But Republicans have attempted to turn missing emails into a political scandal before, as they did with Lois Lerner, a former IRS official at the center of a separate controversy over alleged targeting of conservative nonprofit groups.

For a more thorough comparison, I’ve also included the highest fatality figures for each month since 2002, the lowest for each month since 2002 and the average for each month since 2002.

We’re All Criminals and Outlaws in the Eyes of the American Police State

As with most things, if you want to know the real motives behind any government program, follow the money trail. When you dig down far enough, you quickly find that those who profit from Americans being arrested are none other than the police who arrest them, the courts which try them, the prisons which incarcerate them, and the corporations, which manufacture the weapons and equipment used by police, build and run the prisons, and profit from the cheap prison labor.

Talk about a financial incentive.

First, there’s the whole make-work scheme. In the absence of crime, in order to keep the police and their related agencies employed, occupied, and utilizing the many militarized “toys” passed along by the Department of Homeland Security, one must invent new crimes—overcriminalization—and new criminals to be spied on, targeted, tracked, raided, arrested, prosecuted and jailed. Enter the police state.

The United States' Farm-Grown Terrorism

Let's talk about America's farm-grown terrorism epidemic.

Back on September 11th, nearly 3,000 people lost their lives in the attacks on the World Trade Center, Pentagon, and in Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

Since 9/11, our government has spent over $7.6 trillion on military and homeland security operations in response to the deaths of those roughly 3,000 souls.

Now, compare that to the fact that each year, 23,000 Americans die from antibiotic-resistant infections, and another 2 million get sick.

That's the equivalent of nearly eight 9/11's per year. But our government isn't doing a thing about it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OF COURSE, the US government does nothing about this because Big Agriculture and Big Pharmaceutical are two industries which lavish campaign contributions on Congressional representatives, and know precisely what kind of legislation (or the lack thereof) will buy them.

In the 21st century, the US has a government of the corporations, by the corporations, and definitely FOR THE CORPORATIONS.

Individual voters are irrelevant and expendable, because by the time they are elected, Congressional Representatives have been thoroughly vetted in terms of what they will deliver to the companies which have supported them in the election cycles.

Man arrested after 'hoax bomb threat' on Qatar Airways flight triggers full emergency and RAF scrambles Typhoon to escort plane into Manchester Airport

A suspected hoax bomber was arrested at Manchester Airport today after an RAF fighter jet was scrambled to intercept a flight from Qatar.

Concerns were raised about Qatar Airways flight QR23, which was flying to Britain from Doha, and a Typhoon jet was sent from RAF Coningsby in Lincolnshire to accompany the plane into land.

The Airbus A330 plane was surrounded by armed police officers and fire engines after it touched down and a passenger was escorted from the plane.

Police have confirmed the man pulled from the flight has been arrested on suspicion of making a hoax bomb threat.

Video of CA guards dousing mentally ill inmates with pepper spray prompts rule change

California on Friday announced court-ordered policy changes aimed at curbing the use of force against thousands of mentally ill inmates after video footage showed prisoners screaming as guards doused them in pepper spray.

Karlton found that the California prison system’s use of force policies had violated the constitutional rights of mentally ill inmates.

Report finds government agents ‘directly involved’ in many U.S. terror plots

A new report has revealed a disturbing set of tactics used in the pursuit of domestic terrorism in the USA. Among the findings was the fact that the FBI directly and repeatedly involves itself in planning a large percentage of foiled terror plots — often by convincing impressionable or mentally disabled people to join FBI plots, then arresting them.

Human Rights Watch published the 214-page report, titled “Illusion of Justice: Human Rights Abuses in US Terrorism Prosecutions.” It documents a number of cases which the group describes as being marred by overly-aggressive prosecution, entrapment, and draconian treatment of prisoners.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Welcome to 21st century Amerika, where an alleged law enforcement agency is complicit in creating crimes and criminals!

Every FBI agent doing this should be being tried, convicted, and jailed for breaking the law. But that will happen in the US when pigs fly, because breaking the law is what the Federal government does with impunity.

So unfortunately, in this country, in this century, the most terrifying words one can hear are these: "I am from the government, and I am here to help you!"

Is it Ebola or is it psychological warfare?

Ebola is a propaganda operation.

Choices are being made: what to emphasize, what to ignore, what to use in order to invoke fear.

Producing fear, one way or another, is a standard element in exerting top-down control over the population.

When people are afraid, they’re compliant, they’re obedient to authority.

And that’s the agenda.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is where decades of constant lies to the American people will come back to haunt Washington DC. This may be a real crisis, but already the public is wondering if this isn't just another in a long series of dirty tricks to scare us into obedience. They are wondering if Ebola is a synthetic disease, part of the depopulation agenda set forth in Henry Kissenger's National Security Study memorandum 200 and promoted by money-junkies afraid of all the "useless eaters." Certainly Obama's continued flood of illegal immigrants carrying contagious diseases into this nation has many people wondering if there is a deliberate plan to create a medical crisis to declare a national emergency (as has already happened in African nations) and bring about martial law.

FLASHBACK - DOG THE BOUNTY HUNTER RETURNS TO A&E

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Back in 2007, Duane "The Dog" Chapman, aka A&E's "Bounty Hunter", had a phone conversation with his son Tucker regarding Tucker's choice of girlfriend. Unbeknownst to Duane, Tucker was recording the phone call, and afterwards sold it to the National Enquirer. Because Duane said the word "Nigger" in the conversation, a huge scandal erupted which caused the suspension of the TV show for a time. I taped this interview during the Hawaii press conference when his show returned to the air.

I bring this up because right now the US corporate media is making a huge deal over the fact that they have found the son of one HAMAS leader who, in exchange for his moment in the media spotlight (and who knows what financial compensation), is willing to say all kinds of bad things about HAMAS useful for the propaganda campaign to justify Israel's slaughter of the Palestinians.

The thing we should all keep in mind is that many families have a member who is disaffected. And out of anger or greed, these family members will often say things just to get revenge (or be paid).

Situation atrocious’: Russian Red Cross says E. Ukraine faces humanitarian catastrophe

The Russian Red Cross is not alone in its efforts. Russian Human Rights Commissioner Ella Pamfilova has been trying to achieve the same goal.

"We have made requests to the Ukrainian authorities, OSCE representatives who are present there, and to the Red Cross,” Pamfilova told RT. “We ask all warring parties to grant us a humanitarian corridor to rescue children with severe illnesses. In order to leave the shelling zone, they need special transport and specialist medical help.”

Residential areas have come under fire in the east of Ukraine as Kiev’s forces continue their military operation there. Ukrainian troops and anti-government forces have been blaming each other for the civilian casualties.

The town of Gorlovka in the Donetsk Region has for the last several days witnessed massive shelling. Twenty-seven civilians, including 4 children, were killed in the region July 27-29, the city council said.

A jury awarded former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura $1.8 million Tuesday in his lawsuit against the estate of "American Sniper" author Chris Kyle.

On the sixth day of deliberations, the federal jury decided that the 2012 best-selling book defamed Ventura in its description of a bar fight in California in 2006. Kyle wrote that he decked a man, whom he later identified as Ventura, after the man allegedly said the Navy SEALs "deserve to lose a few."

Ventura testified that Kyle fabricated the passage about punching him. Kyle said in testimony videotaped before his death last year that his story was accurate.

Folks Out There Have a “Distaste of Western Civilization and Cultural Values”

The Times then goes on to blame terrorism on “religious fanaticism…the anger among those left behind by globalization,” and the “distaste of Western civilization and cultural values” among the global dispossessed. The blinders and self-deception in such a statement are truly mind-boggling. As if corporate globalization, pushed by the U.S. government and its closest allies, with the help of the World Trade Organization, World Bank and IMF, had not unleashed a tremendous immiseration process on the Third World, with budget cuts and import devastation of artisans and small farmers. Many of these hundreds of millions of losers are quite aware of the role of the United States in this process. It is the U.S. public who by and large have been kept in the dark.

Exposed - U.S. Diplomat Behind Artillery Satellite Images was Involved in the Toppling of Yanukovich

It turns out that the man the U.S. State Department chose to handle the the latest phase of Russia demonization played an integral role in the toppling of the Ukrainian government.

Geoffrey Pyatt was the man on the other end of the now infamous leaked Victoria Nuland call. That was the call in which the U.S. State Department got caught red handed discussing who they were going to install in the Ukrainian government after the fall of Yanukovich. If you haven't listened to that call, you should. It was very revealing.

Oh, by the way, you probably heard of this audio clip back when it was first released. The main stream media put all attention on the fact that Victoria Nuland said "Fuck the E.U." Apparently these "journalists" consider her potty mouth to be more important than the fact that the U.S. State Department was caught red handed installing a puppet government.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Admitted Liar Claims Russia Is Shooting Artillery Into Ukraine

Should We Believe a Known Liar?

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper is an known liar:

One of the nation’s top military and constitutional law experts – Professor Jonathan Turley – writes:

National Intelligence Director James Clapper appeared before Congress and lied about the program. He later said that he gave the least untruthful statement he could think of. But it was nevertheless untrue and potentially a crime for which he could be prosecuted.

And a huge majority of Americans agree that Clapper should be prosecuted for perjury.

Should we believe a known liar?

Clapper now claims that satellite photos show that Russia fired artillery into Ukraine.

The Pentagon and State Department first accused Russian artillery of firing directly into Ukraine on Thursday. The charges were repeated Friday, although no evidence was offered.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Nothing anyone says in the Federal government can be considered as the truth, and Clapper is no exception to this reality.

StingRay: US Police have Used Fake Mobile Base Stations to Spy on Citizens

A civil liberties group has discovered emails showing that the US government has concealed police use of fake mobile base stations which can spy on citizens without requiring search warrants since at least 2009.

Emails obtained by the American Civil Liberties Union show that federal law enforcement officials insisted police in Sacramento, Florida conceal their use of the devices, known as "StingRay", in order to prevent criminals from learning how to get around them.

Sgt. Ken Castro of the Sarasota Police Department sent emails to members of the North Port Police Department in April 2009, informing them that the US Marshals Service requested that police not disclose StingRay in court depositions, but instead refer to it as "information from a confidential source regarding the location of the suspect".

The North Port Police Department implemented the new rules and continues to avoid mentioning StingRay, according to the emails.

A USPS Worker Called 911, and Then His Bosses Called Him a Terrorist

On July 18 the U.S. Department of Labor sued the USPS, claiming the Postal Service retaliated against Purviance, a maintenance worker with 35 years experience on the job who had the nerve to call 911 after his superior dismissed Purviance’s concerns about what he feared was a carbon monoxide leak on the premises. The Labor Department says the alleged retaliation violated the Occupational Safety and Health Act, which permits employees to contact the authorities when they feel their working conditions are unsafe.

According to the suit, Purviance’s superiors didn’t appreciate his wish to put safety first:

Ukrainian Air Defense Exercises Might be Behind Malaysian Aircraft Crash – Source

A system mix up during a Ukrainian air defense units’ rocket launch exercise could be the cause of the Malaysia Airlines crash in southeast Ukraine, a source from one of the Ukrainian defense departments told RIA Novosti.

“On July 17 the commanding officer of 156th Anti-Aircraft Regiment was instructed to conduct a training exercise of ground troops stationed near Donetsk, which involved deploying the troops, and carrying out a routine tracking and destroying of targets with the Buk-M1 missile,” the source said.

The source added that the actual launch of the rockets was not intended.

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!
