Iowa bird flu outbreak prompts governor to declare state of emergency

Iowa governor Terry Branstad declared a state of emergency on Friday due to a rapidly expanding avian flu outbreak, soon after state agriculture officials announced four new poultry farms had initially tested positive for the virus. Iowa, the top egg-producing state in the United States, is the third state to declare a state of emergency because of the viral outbreak, which either has led or will lead to the extermination of up to 21m chickens and turkeys nationwide.

A Totalitarian Society Has Totalitarian Science

Totalitarian science lets you know you’re living in a totalitarian society.

The notion that the State can put its seal on favored science, enforce it, and punish its competitors, is anathema to a free society.

OBAMA BLOCKS IRAQI NUN FROM DESCRIBING CHRISTIAN PERSECUTION

A leading conservative is asking why the Obama State Department is barring a persecuted Iraqi nun from entry into the United States to share her message about the brutal treatment of Christians in her country.

Nina Shea of the Hudson Institute’s Center for Religious Freedom, writes in a National Review op-ed that Sister Diana Momeka is “an internationally respected and leading representative of the Nineveh Christians who have been killed and deported by ISIS.”

Yet this nun is being “barred from coming to Washington to testify about this catastrophe?”

Sister Diana was the only Christian in the delegation and the only member blocked from the trip, the Washington Times reported, leading some of her American supporters to question why she was singled out.

Shea, in her op-ed titled “With Malice Toward Nun,” exposed the real reason why Obama denied the visa for Sister Diana.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The persecution of Christians and other minority religions in the Middle East now is an established fact. That Obama wants it ignored is not going to make it go away spontaneously.

The GOP Is Trying to Give the 25 Richest Americans a $334 Billion Tax Break

In mid April, the Republican-controlled House voted to repeal the estate tax, which, despite the GOP's "death tax" messaging, affects only the superrich: Of the nearly 2.6 million Americans who died in 2013, just 4,687 had estates flush enough to trigger the tax. That's because the bar to qualify for the estate tax is quite generous: The first $5.43 million of an individual's wealth is exempt from the tax, and that amount goes up to $10.86 million for married couples. After that point, the tax rate is 40 percent.

Sheriff David Clarke - Police will not be used as Human Sacrifices to Satisfy a Mob

Sheriff David Clarke tells Steve Malzberg that Police will not be used as Human Sacrifices to Satisfy a Mob, in reference to the six Baltimore police officers who were criminally charged today by State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby in the death of Freddie Gray, adding This isn't Justice, It's Revenge.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sheriff Clarke seems to forget (or he wants us to forget) that the knife found in Freddie Grey's pocket is legal to carry under Maryland law, that Freddie should not have been arrested in the first place, let alone killed while in police custody!

The whole world is watching this situation and deciding who is part of the problem and who is part of the solution, and those seeking to protect the police officers will unquestionably be seen as the problem.

More Details on the Officers Charged in Freddie Gray’s Death

The Washington Post reported more details on the identities of the six officers accused in the death of Freddie Gray, including their racial makeup, and the charges against them: The officers — three white, three African American — represent a broad spectrum of experience on Baltimore’s police force. Three of them joined the force only three years ago. Another officer, the driver who faces the most serious charges, is African-American and has been on the force since 1999.

Airbus to sue NSA, German spies accused of swiping tech secrets

European aerospace giant Airbus is promising legal action over claims its top blueprints were stolen by German spies and given to America's intelligence agencies.

"We are aware that as a large company in the sector, we are a target and subject of espionage," the company said in a statement to the AFP newswire.

"However, in this case we are alarmed because there is concrete suspicion of industrial espionage. We will now file a criminal complaint against persons unknown on suspicion of industrial espionage."

The threat comes after days of speculation in the German press over reports that the Bundesnachrichtendienst (BND) – the German foreign intelligence agency – has been spying on German and European companies for the Americans since at least 2008.

Sayed Ali Khamenei about police brutality against Blacks in the USA

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Khamenei's comments are accurate and indeed not too far removed from the ones I have been making about the police brutality issue and its corrosive effect on society. For the public to trust the system, punishment must be seen to be inflicted on the guilty and only on the guilty. When the public sees punishment inflicted at random in the innocent while politically connected guilty go free, the public soon understands that the police are not about justice or law enforcement but merely a tool of oppression by the haves against the have-nots.

Israel's whores in the US Congress are seizing on this video as an excuse to simply cancel the P5+1 talks and open the door to war with Iran.

6 Baltimore Cops Released on Bail Set Lower Than $500,000 for Jailed Protester

Six police officers charged in the death of Freddie Gray were released from Baltimore’s Central Booking and Intake Center Friday night after posting bail, court records show, according to the Baltimore Sun.

The four officers facing felony charges posted $350,000 bails; the two facing misdemeanors posted $250,000 bails, the Sun writes.

The news comes after Allen Bullock, 18, who was captured in photos smashing police car windows with a traffic cone, surrendered to police earlier this week at the urging of his parents. And as of two days ago, he was being held on $500,000 bail, an amount his parents could not afford.

Lives Of Three Babies Rescued By 3D-Printed, Growth-Flexible Implants

Researchers at the University of Michigan's C.S. Mott Children's Hospital in Ann Arbor say the three boys have become the "first in the world to benefit from groundbreaking 3D-printed devices" to stent their airways in such a way as to allow the supports to keep up with their growth.

Islamic State crisis: US-led Syria strikes 'kill dozens of civilians'
Air strikes by the US-led coalition targeting Islamic State militants have killed more than 50 civilians in northern Syria, activists say.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a UK-based group, says Birmahle village was hit on Friday and that some people were still trapped in rubble.

The coalition has so far not commented.

Earlier this month, the Observatory said the US-led air campaign had killed more than 2,000 people in total, including at least 1,922 IS fighters.

"Air strikes by the coalition early on Friday on the village of Birmahle in Aleppo province killed 52 civilians," Rami Abdel Rahman, head of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, told AFP news agency.

Seven children were killed, and 13 people were still unaccounted for, the group said.

The Saudi-Israeli alliance has gone on the offensive, ramping up a “regime change” war in Syria and, in effect, promoting a military victory for Al-Qaeda or its spinoff, the Islamic State. But the consequences of that victory could toll the final bell for the American Republic, writes Robert Parry.

If Syrian President Bashar al-Assad meets the same fate as Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi or Iraq’s Saddam Hussein, much of Official Washington would rush out to some chic watering hole to celebrate – one more “bad guy” down, one more “regime change” notch on the belt. But the day after Damascus falls could mark the beginning of the end for the American Republic.

Irony of Ironies: Afghan Watchdog Who Identified Vast Waste Told to Slash Staff

How’s this for poetic injustice? The watchdog who found that fully half of all monies poured into Afghanistan was unaccounted for or wasted… has been told to slash his staff.

It seems, despite (or perhaps because of) the $56 billion dumped into “reconstruction”, the Department of Defense (DOD) cannot afford to keep the watchdog at present strength.

Shooting (or is it slashing?) the Messengers

John Sopko, the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR), was ordered by the US embassy in Kabul to slash his staff in the country by 40 percent and that the cut was “non-negotiable.”
“This arbitrary number was developed without SIGAR’s input, and embassy officials did not provide any explanation for how they determined these cuts,” Sopko said April 30 in testimony before the National Security subcommittee of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

Is Merkel a CIA Asset ?

Is Merkel an asset for American intelligence, serving the geopolitical interests of Washington rather than the good of her own nation, or the wider good of Europe?

The claims that Merkel’s government knew about German state intelligence spying on behalf of the Americans against the country’s own industrial interests raise disturbing questions about the integrity of German government leaders.

The apparent betrayal of German national interests by Chancellor Angela Merkel is not only evident over the recent industrial spying scandal on behalf of America, the slavish pursuit by Merkel of Washington’s anti-Russian policy over Ukraine — in contradistinction to her country’s national interests — also cogently suggests that the chancellor is serving a foreign master.

Value Received for those Deceived or True Value Comprehended.

So many of us think ourselves to be smart, lucky or privileged because we climbed to the top of a pyrite plated garbage heap. So intoxicated are they that they do not notice the smell. They do not notice the atmosphere and they do not see the precarious perch of their position. They are upside down and backwards and we must be upside down and backwards to them; walking contrary to all the things they engage themselves in. What a pipe dream it all is and how quickly it goes away. Then the dreamers awaken in a desolate field, with no company but the most undesirable imaginable, besides of course, one another.

Freddie Gray, it turns out, was legally bearing arms, as the Second Amendment of the Constitution guarantees.

His arrest, and his death, appear to be a violation of a number of his civil rights, and those rights include his Second Amendment rights to carry a weapon.

Independence Supporters in South East Ukraine Follow Russian Orders - NATO

NATO Supreme Allied Commander Gen. Philip Breedlove claims that independence fighters of the self-proclaimed people's republics of Donetsk and Luhansk (DPR and LPR) in southeastern Ukraine are under Russian command.

The United States, the European Union and NATO have repeatedly accused Russia of being involved in the Ukrainian conflict, going as far as to claim that Russia has been sending troops and weapons to aid DPR and LPR in countering the attacks of Kiev forces that launched a special military operation in Ukraine's southeast in April, 2014.

Russia has repeatedly denied the West's accusations, which have not been supported with any factual evidence, also expressing concern over the recent build-up of NATO forces along its borders.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to NATO Supreme Allied Commander Gen. Philip Breedlove; sir, where, precisely, is your irrefutable proof that this is happening?!?

It appears that because you have none, you can present none, is this not the reality here?!?

The American people now fully expect those in power to lie us into serial wars, which are generally excellent for those corporations forming the US/NATO military industrial complex, but generally lousy for We the People.

We remember, very clearly:

1. The "Gulf of Tonkin" incident, which was used to inflame the war in Vietnam.
2. The Israeli attack on the USS Liberty, for which the US government has never made it take responsibility, with many killed and gravely wounded.
3. The charge that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction.
4. The charge that we had to use the RPT (responsibility to protect principal) to cause regime change in Libya, and we can see how well the overthrow of Qaddafi has gone there.
5. The claim that Iran already has a nuclear bomb
6. Al Basshar was gassing his own Alawite people.
7. The propping up of a US puppet in Yemen, until the Yemenite people had had quite enough, and ran the guy out of town on a rail

So sir, if Americans, and Europeans, are skeptical about this charge, please understand that particularly on the American side, we are tired of being lied to in order to muster up support for more wars. You do not, and will not, have it, in order to declare a war on Russia.

And you have to know this: the US and NATO, even with combined strength, do not have the money, the manufacturing, and the troop strength to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia.

Oh, and by the way, just a note about what the US legislature is doing to fan the flames of war in Ukraine, as reported this morning at RT.com:

Citing an anti-Russia policy brief, US lawmakers approved $200 million for providing “lethal weapons of a defensive nature” to the Ukrainian government as part of the $600 billion Pentagon budget proposal for the fiscal year 2016. The House Armed Services Committee passed its proposal for the 2016 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) with a bipartisan vote of 60 to 2, in what Defense News described as a “marathon” session that ended around 4:30am on Thursday. Section 1532 of the 498-page document calls for the US to provide assistance, “including training, equipment, lethal weapons of a defensive nature, logistics support, supplies and services, and sustainment to the military and national security forces of Ukraine” through the end of September 2016. In addition to the $200 million allocated for the program, the proposal also authorizes the Pentagon to “accept and retain contributions, including in-kind contributions, from foreign governments.” Read more US House urges Obama to send arms to Ukraine The bill says the purpose of the assistance is to back the government of Ukraine in “protecting and defending the Ukrainian people from attacks posed by Russian-backed separatists,” as well as “securing its sovereign territory against foreign aggressors” and “promoting the conditions for a negotiated settlement to end the conflict.”

Sir, I will attest to you that this is pure madness, and setting the US on a path toward war with Russia. I understand about having a strong defense. But as a Christian pacifist, well into her 60s, I believe very strongly that the art of negotiation and win/win are tools which the US government needs to relearn, and very quickly.

The last thing ANYONE on this planet needs is a 3rd world war; the unintended consequences of such a war may well be both horrific...and irreversible.

Anger as Hurricane Sandy victims have to pay back emergency aid with interest

Debt collectors called in while Federal Emergency Management Agency examines allegations that engineering reports doctored to cut insurance bill.

Thousands of families whose homes were destroyed by Hurricane Sandy are being ordered to repay some of the compensation they received from the government.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is not only demanding interest on what it says were overpayments, but Washington is ready to call in debt collectors to recoup the cash.
That is not the only blow faced by families whose lives were devastated by the October 2012 hurricane which claimed 117 lives in the US and caused an estimated $50 billion (£32.5 billion) damage.
FEMA has, under pressure from senators, started investigating allegations that engineers’ reports into the damage suffered by home owners were deliberately doctored to deny victims insurance payouts.

The Cult of Cop Worship

The tragic and yet unexplained death of Freddie Gray while in custody of the Baltimore Police has once again brought the issue of police violence and misconduct to the forefront of the news cycle. The Freddie Gray matter followed a pattern that has become all too familiar in the U.S. A young man from a minority community is arrested for trivial, or in the case of Gray non-existent offenses, has a brief interaction with the police and inexplicably suffers a resulting death. Anger in the community, largely resulting from generations of poverty, despair and violence at the hands of police acting as an occupying force, boils over into civil unrest that by and large displaces the original police misconduct as the focal point of the media's attention.

BOSTON OFFICER WAVES GUN IN VIDEOGRAPHER’S FACE

At one time an unknown Boston police officer walks up to the man
filming and asks, “Do you want to go for a ride with me in my cruiser?”
The man asks why and the officer states he (man recording) could get
some ‘real’ action then. Then the officer decides to walk away and you
think the interaction is over but all of the sudden you hear, “don’t put
the camera down, point it here.” As the man raises the camera you
notice the officer coming back with a gun in his hand. He gets very
close to the camera while saying, “this is why we’re here.”
Was the gun a weapon in a crime? If so, should the officer be
carrying it around? Isn’t it evidence? Or was this weapon found during a
search? Regardless, I still don’t know what point the officer was
trying to make. So you have a gun? Great, why don’t you focus on the
crime committed with that gun and not on the person merely filming the police.

How the Pentagon Could Soon Share Americans’ Data With Foreign Militaries

The new strategy indirectly, but unequivocally, ties into information-sharing legislation that’s slowly making its way to the President’s desk. Among the various bills moving around Capitol Hill, the most important is the Cyber Information Sharing Act. Among other things, CISA would protect companies from being sued for sending data about their users to DHS, which would be permitted to send it in real time to DOD and other U.S. agencies and outfits. In turn, DOD’s new strategy claims the right to to share cyber threat data beyond the United States. Presumably, that would include information obtained via CISA.

But if CISA or its cousins becomes law, what kind of information might fly from company servers to DHS to DOD and then around world? Members of the privacy community describe the scope as incredibly broad.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This proposed legislation is yet another evisceration of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, cementing the disempowerment of We the People to control our own data, and what happens to it.

10 Nazi War Criminals Who May Escape Justice Forever

As time ticks onward, the atrocities committed in Nazi Germany are fading from living memory and into the pages of history books. Those who survived the Third Reich, the concentration camps, and Hitler’s mad regime are dying—and that means our hunt for the remaining free Nazi war criminals is coming to an end. Men responsible for some of the most heinous acts in recent history are dying free, and our time to bring them to justice is growing increasingly limited.

Polls Show Youngest Americans Are Skeptical of Global Warming

When it comes to global warming, there is a wide variety of opinions. While mainstream science contends that it’s an open and shut case, others believe quite the opposite. There are also plenty of folks in-between who do believe the planet is warming, but that it’s not being caused by human activity. You wouldn’t know that if you talked to most global warming advocates though. To them, climate skepticism is a kooky, marginal opinion that will soon go the way of the dodo.

Recent polling has proven otherwise however.

It’s official: Police were ordered to stand down and let the Baltimore riots rage out of control

Up until now, there had been some unconfirmed reports that police in Baltimore had been ordered to “stand down” during the riots, but nobody had been willing to come forward and go on the record. Now that has all changed. Michael Lewis is the Sheriff of Wicomico County, Maryland and what he has to say is absolutely jaw dropping. When he saw what was happening in Baltimore, he gathered up some of his fellow officers and drove down to the city to help. But when he got there, he says that all of the police were being ordered not to take any action and to let the rioters destroy property. Lewis made this astounding claim during a discussion on a Baltimore radio station…

Oil Prices Up, Gasoline Prices Up

“A rebound in crude oil prices has fueled up gasoline prices in the last week across the United States, with even bigger spikes in the West Coast, where refinery problems have returned. The national average stands at a four month high, though for this date prices remain at their lowest since 2009. Late last week, West Texas Intermediate crude oil stood near $58 a barrel, the highest since December 15, 2014. That price stands some $10 a barrel higher than a month ago, and has been a key contributor to the rise in gasoline prices that many states are witnessing. Refinery issues along the West Coast have added insult to injury for Californians, where prices are up by 25 cents per gallon just in the last week in some areas.”

Powerful report on sexual abuse in (Canadian) military calls for outside-chain-of-command solution

The report from former Supreme Court Justice Marie Deschamps on sexual misconduct and harassment in the Canadian Armed Forces is blistering and powerful.

It describes "a sexualized environment in the armed forces … characterized by the frequent use of swear words and highly degrading expressions that reference women's bodies, sexual jokes, innuendos, discriminatory comments with respect to the abilities of women, and unwelcome sexual touching..."

That would be bad enough.

But Deschamps goes on to say that this sexualized environment leads to the widespread "use of sex to enforce power relationships and to punish and ostracize a member of a unit."

REVEALED: Freddie Gray suffered fatal 'catastrophic injury when he fell head first in back of police van and broke neck as head hit bolt' - and police admit mystery secret stop on journey

An investigation has concluded Freddie Gray broke his neck after falling head-first into the back of the police van as it was moving, it was reported today.

Medical and law enforcement sources briefed on the police investigation told ABC News Gray's 'catastrophic' head injuries were consistent with hitting a bolt 'in the back door of the van'.

They claimed there was 'no evidence' Gray sustained a fatal spine injury during his arrest, which was caught on camera on a street side on April 12.

According to ABC's sources, Gray was standing in the van, bent over with his hand cuffed behind his back and his head pointing towards the back door.

It is believed he fell into the door, breaking his neck.

11 Examples Of How Evil Is Growing In America Like A Cancerous Tumor

Have you heard of “arterial tapping”, “flakka” or “cyberextortion”? In America today, just about every conceivable type of evil that you could possibly name is growing, and we are even inventing new kinds of evil that the world has never seen before. It is very easy for us to point to the looting and violence in Baltimore and call that evil, but there is far more to the social decay of America than just that. The foundations of our society are rotting and decaying in thousands of different ways, and our biggest problem as a nation is what is found inside our own hearts. We have rejected the values and principles that were handed down to us by previous generations of Americans because we believed that we knew better than they did. But now look at us. Our country is falling apart all around us, and we only have ourselves to blame.

British Doctors Now Asking Elderly If They’re Ready to Die

Ever since the Affordable Care Act was passed, Americans have been asking themselves if our healthcare will ever resemble the UK’s socialized medical system. Some have greeted it with praise, while others have been concerned that our healthcare could turn to death panels to cut costs. Now the UK’s National Health Service has given us another unfortunate condition to look forward to. They recently told all doctors to ask every patient over 75 if they would like to establish a “do not resuscitate” order for future emergencies. In some cases, the doctors are ordering their nurses to cold-call every elderly patient, and everyone with a long-term condition, to see if they have “thought about resuscitation.”

12 Unanswered Questions About the Baltimore Riots That They Don’t Want Us to Ask

Why did the Baltimore riots seem like they were perfectly staged to be a television event? Images of police vehicles burning made for great television all over the planet, but why were there abandoned police vehicles sitting right in the middle of the riot zones without any police officers around them in the first place? Why was the decision made ahead of time to set a curfew for Tuesday night and not for Monday night? And why are Baltimore police officers claiming that they were ordered to “stand down” and not intervene as dozens of shops, businesses and homes went up in flames? Yes, the anger over the death of Freddie Gray is very real. Police brutality has been a major problem in Baltimore and much of the rest of the nation for many years. But could it be possible that the anger that the people of Baltimore are feeling is being channeled and manipulated for other purposes?
