The Price of Ground Beef Has DOUBLED Since the Last Financial Crisis

Since the depths of the last recession, the price of ground beef in the United States has doubled. Has your paycheck doubled since then?

Even though the Federal Reserve insists that we are in a “low inflation” environment, the government’s own numbers show that the price of ground beef has been on an unprecedented run over the past six years. In early 2009, the average price of a pound of ground beef was hovering near 2 dollars. In February, it hit a brand new all-time record high of $4.238 per pound. Even just 12 months ago, the price of ground beef was sitting at $3.555 per pound. So we are talking about a huge increase. And this hits American families where they really live...

Fears of martial law as special ops set to swarm Southwest and operate undetected among civilians who've been deemed HOSTILE in massive military exercise

Headlines like Freedom Outpost's 'Operation Jade Helm—military trains for martial law in American South-west' abound across the Right-leaning blogosphere and Info Wars warns that Jade Helm is simply 'an effort to test the effectiveness of infiltration techniques' on the American public. 'They're having Delta Force, Navy SEALS with the Army trained to basically take over,' Info Wars' Alex Jones said Sunday. 'Texas is listed as a hostile sector, and of course, we are...We're here defending the republic.'

What's next in police state America? Why armed TSA police of course!

The NY Times reported the union that represents the TSA renewed its push for armed agents at checkpoints of the nation's airports. Using a violent attack by a machete-wielding taxi driver in New Orleans as an excuse. Another pilot allegedly crashed a plane on purpose with 150 people on board, why doesn't the TSA demand yearly psychological and polygraphs exams of pilots? Why don't they set up random DUI pre-flight checkpoints of pilots nationwide? What about tired pilots that fall asleep in the cockpit? Police state America knows pilots would strike and air transportation would come to a halt.

Germanwings jetliner catastrophe: The first antidepressant drug-induced mass murder of the skies?

The Mirror (UK) is now reporting that "Germanwings co-pilot Andreas Lubitz 'suffered burnout or depression' a few years ago, a former classmate has claimed."

The reported behavior of Andrea Lubitz is eerily similar to SSRI-drug-induced school shooters who have carried out mass murders in the United States (see detailed list below). In case after case, school shooters have been found to either be on prescription antidepressant drugs or have been recently taken off them, causing withdrawal side effects.

What U.S. school shootings and the Germanwings mass murder have in common is a dissociation from reality where individuals often think they are "playing a video game" and don't realize their actions are literally harming other people in the real world.

Germanwings Flight 9525 co-pilot deliberately crashed plane, officials say

German authorities also say "that we have to assume" that Flight 9525 "was deliberately activated for a crash," German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Thursday. "This is hard to comprehend for most people. Nobody can imagine this."

The French government has asked the FBI to help investigate the crash, a law enforcement official said Thursday.

A search is underway for the plane's second "black box," the flight data recorder, which could shed more light on the plane's final minutes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Too many people are assuming too much based on insufficient information. Without the digital flight recorder, nobody knows what the co-pilot did or did not do to the flight control instruments. There is a real rush to judgement happening here.

Mass-killer co-pilot who deliberately flew Germanwings plane into a mountain after locking captain out of cockpit had to STOP his training because he was depressed and suffering 'burnt-out'

The Germanwings pilot who deliberately crashed into a mountain killing 150 people had to stop his training because he was suffering from depression and 'burnout', it emerged today.

Andreas Günter Lubitz locked his captain out of the cockpit before ploughing the Airbus A320 into the French Alps at more than 400mph.

The chilling final moments of the doomed jet were revealed by French prosecutors who said Lubitz's sole aim was to 'destroy the plane'.

It has since emerged that the 28-year-old was forced to postpone his pilot training in 2008 because of mental health problems, with a friend saying he was 'in depression.'

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This feels like EgyptAir 990 all over again.

11 facts about gun violence in the United States

It's pretty hard to count up all the guns in the United States, especially given how varied different states' licensing and registration policies are. A 2012 Congressional Research Service report estimated that there were 310 million civilian guns in 2009: 114 million handguns, 110 million rifles, and 86 million shotguns. The Small Arms Survey, which measures gun prevalence internationally, estimated that there were 270 million in 2007. The latter estimate suggests there were 88.8 guns for every 100 people in the US in 2007; there were about 307 million people in the US in 2009, which would mean the CRS estimated there were more guns than people in America.

Who was Andreas Lubitz? Germanwings co-pilot who 'intentionally killed' 150 passengers in deliberate Alps crash

Members of the Montbaur flying club where Lubitz renewed his glider license last month said he was pleased to have gained a job with Germanwings.

"He was happy he had the job with Germanwings and he was doing well," longtime club member Peter Ruecker, told AP. "He was very happy. He gave off a good feeling."

Ruecker said that Lubitz had a girlfriend. "I can't remember anything where something wasn't right," he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Note the quote marks around 'intentionally killed'. People are already doubting this story. As this article indicates, there was no indication of a man ready to commit suicide and take 150 people along with him. The story of a suicide/mass murder is the product of this single French Prosecutor who is grabbing his fifteen minutes of fame with sensational claims which newspapers and TV are eager to parrot to attract audience. But not all the parts of the story are substantiated just yet. That the cockpit door was closed is a given, because of security rules. But since the digital flight recorder for the aircraft has not been recovered, there is no factual basis to claim that Lubitz intentionally altered the flight controls, or was even conscious in the cockpit. As other media have reported, the cockpit voice recorder only hears the sounds of the Captain outside the cockpit trying to get in. There are no recorded noise from within the cockpit. Hopefully the DFR will be recovered in a usable condition soon.

There is one other aspect we should look at. There have been previous crashes of airlines blamed on suicidal pilots, such as EgyptAir 990. But behind the headlines of a crazed lone-nut pilot there were indications that EgyptAir 990 was carrying a cargo to Egypt (along with high-ranking Egyptian military officers) that a third party did not wish to arrive. One major clue to the real story of that crash is that a special deep-salvage company that is an expert in toxic and radioactive cargoes was called in to recover something from the wreckage of the plane. So, it will be interesting to keep an eye on the cargo manifest for the A320.

Welfare Makes America More Entrepreneurial: Research shows that when governments provide citizens with economic security, they embolden them to take more risks.

In 1988, Ronald Reagan traveled to the Soviet Union and gave a speech at Moscow State University, making the case for capitalism. America’s secret, he argued, was its entrepreneurs, whose “courage to take risks” was responsible “for almost all the economic growth in the United States” and much of its technological edge. This risk-taking was made possible, he continued, by economic freedom, which he associated with “limited, unintrusive” government.

Saudi Attack on Yemen - The New Normal?

Tony Cartalucci

Saudi Arabia, in an unprecedented act of unprovoked unilateral military aggression against Yemen by the autocratic absolute monarchy, was allegedly triggered in a US-backed attempt to restore what Riyadh is calling the "legitimate government of Yemen."

What exactly constitutes a legitimate government is not clear for a despotic regime where elections are not held, women cannot drive, and enemies of the state are beheaded in medieval displays of public barbarism not entirely unlike their ideological ambassadors among the so-called "Islamic State" or ISIS...

A Review of Jewcentricity by Adam Garfinkle

Adam Garfinkle is the founding editor of The American Interest, a bimonthly magazine focused on politics, culture, and international affairs. He served as speechwriter for secretaries of state Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice and has taught at John Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies, the University of Pennsylvania, Haverford College, and Tel Aviv University. Garfinkle’s 2009 book, Jewcentricity: Why the Jews are praised, blamed, and used to explain just about everything is touted as an examination of “the various roles Jews are imagined to play on the world stage that they do not, in fact, actually play.”[1] It was published by Wiley, an elite, academic publisher. It is an excellent example of how books with little or no intellectual or scholarly merit are published by elite publishers if they contain positive portrayals of Jews.

Germanwings crash: pilot locked out of plane's cockpit, say reports

New York Times and AFP news agency say evidence from cockpit voice recorder suggests pilot left before flight 4U9525’s descent and could not get back in

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is, sadly, a lot of wild speculation going on about what happened. The actual facts are that the Captain left the cockpit after the plane reached cruising height, possibly to use the bathroom, chat with the flight attendants, walk the aisle and smile at the passengers. Because of 9-11, cockpit doors may only be opened from within the cockpit. The pilot who remained in the cockpit cannot be heard on the cockpit voice recorder. Only the captain locked outside is heard screaming and pounding on the door. The French Prosecutor is leaping to a conclusion that the pilot inside the cockpit deliberately crashed the plane (probably realizing the sensation will make him famous in the media for a day or so). I am not ready to make that leap. The pilot may have lost consciousness, suffered a stroke, heart attack, and disengaged the autopilot while thrashing around. The descent, while steep, does not look like a deliberate attempt to crash the plane to me. Until they find the digital recorder, we don't know what controls were touched in the cockpit or why the outside crew did not use the alternative system to unlock the door. But airlines and aircraft manufacturers habitually blame the pilots in disasters to protect their own reputations, so IMHO all we really know is that we do not know. Yet. Obviously, the media claim that there were eyewitnesses to a mid-air explosion and smoke trailing from the aircraft before the crash was someone's attempt to grab attention.

Bibi Wins with Racism and Revoked Promise

Reality crashed down on those who had hoped the March 17 Knesset elections might lead to a more moderate future Israeli leadership.

He won in large part by revoking his earlier pledge to support a Palestinian state, and by using last-hour racist warnings to bring out hard right voters.

“Something like scales” must be made to fall from the eyes of the American public which has been endorsing, funding and supporting a brutal military occupation for almost five decades. How will that be accomplished?

Conference organizers are the American Educational Trust, publisher of the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs, and the Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy.

This unprecedented gathering will focus on the Israel lobby in America. How big is it? How fast has it grown? How interconnected are the organizations and individuals? How much revenue does it raise and where does the money go? What are the common objectives of the lobby? What laws apply to lobbying to benefit a foreign government and are they vigorously enforced? Do coordinated campaign contributions cause American policymakers to act more on behalf of Israel than the United States? What fallacies underlie the assertions that U.S. and Israeli interests are the same? What are the Israel lobby’s public and private, short-and-medium-term policy objectives? And what can Americans who do not believe pro-Israel slogans, activities and policy objectives do?

The Roots of Netanyahu’s Electoral Victory: Colonial Expansion and Fascist Ideology

Netanyahu has established the fact that Israel and its people embrace a racist ideology and receive the endorsement of most Western leaders, and mass media and the unconditional support of its overseas fifth column.

There is no question that the majority of Israeli Jewish leaders and parties support Netanyahu’s racist pronouncements and ‘no-state’ solution and joined him in a coalition government. But the larger issue is the positive mass response to Netanyahu’s call to action. Nearly three quarters of the electorate turned out (73%) to elect him. Moreover, Netanyahu has been elected prime minister for four terms: between 1996-99 and more recently 2009-20.

What is more, the opposition has not differed from the Netanyahu coalition regime’s Judeo-centric policies and pronouncements. In other words, ‘racist’ ideology per se is not what drives the Israeli majority to repeatedly support Netanyahu.

Smart Meter Information Consumers Should Know

Over the course of a year that my electric power company in suburban Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, has been installing AMI Smart Meters on homes in my area, I have been able to keep one off my house by placing a “No Permission Granted to Install Smart Meter” sign on the meter along with a padlock on the meter latch. Early in February of 2015, I received what I perceived as a threatening letter to my health, safety, and well-being, that if I don’t give PECO permission to install a Smart Meter, my electric power will be turned off, and not because I’ve not paid my bill! No utility bill wherever my late husband or I have lived ever was missed or even made as a late payment! So, I’ve decided to tell my story of what’s been going on in the USA about Smart Meters.

We’re treating soil like dirt. It’s a fatal mistake, as our lives depend on it

It’s literally and – it seems – metaphorically, beneath us. To judge by its absence from the media, most journalists consider it unworthy of consideration. But all human life depends on it. We knew this long ago, but somehow it has been forgotten. As a Sanskrit text written in about 1500BC noted: “Upon this handful of soil our survival depends. Husband it and it will grow our food, our fuel and our shelter and surround us with beauty. Abuse it and the soil will collapse and die, taking humanity with it.”

The issue hasn’t changed, but we have. Landowners around the world are now engaged in an orgy of soil destruction so intense that, according to the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organisation, the world on average has just 60 more years of growing crops. Even in Britain, which is spared the tropical downpours that so quickly strip exposed soil from the land, Farmers Weekly reports, we have “only 100 harvests left”.

Mar 25 20:26

Financial Feudalism

Whereas before money was borrowed in order to produce growth, now it had to be borrowed, in ever-larger amounts, simply to prevent financial and industrial collapse. Consequently, interest rates on new debt were reduced all the way to zero, in something that came to be known as ZIRP, for Zero Interest Rate Policy. To make it even sweeter, central banks accepted the money they loaned out at 0% interest as deposits, which earned a tiny bit of interest, allowing banks to make a profit by doing absolutely nothing.

Unsurprisingly, doing absolutely nothing proved to be rather ineffective, and around the world economies started to shrink. Many countries resorted to forging their statistics to paint a rosier picture, but one statistic that doesn't lie is energy consumption. It is indicative of the overall level of economic activity, and it is down across the entire world. A glut of oil, and a much lower oil price, is what we are currently witnessing as a result. Another indicator that doesn't lie is the Baltic Dry Index, which tracks the level of shipping activity, and it has plummeted too.

Weinstein Urges Jews to Get Organized 'As Mafia' to Take On Anti-Semites

As part of his acceptance speech for a Humanitarian Award at the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s (SWC) National Tribute Dinner on Tuesday, Filmmaker Harvey Weinstein said that the Jewish community needs to “get as organized as the mafia.” "We better stand up and kick these guys in the ass," Wienstein said of anti-Semites.

After being introduced as “a really nice Jewish boy” at the ceremony by longtime friend, fellow filmmaker and Dreamworks CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg, Weinstein abandoned his prepared speech in favor of a rant on defeating anti-Semitism.

"We're gonna have to get as organized as the mafia," said the 63-year —old Academy Award winner to the crowd. "We just can't take it anymore [from] these crazy bastards."

“Too bad movies can’t all be like Inglourious Basterds, where Hitler gets what he deserves.”

Germanwings Flight 9525 audio reveals pilot locked out of cockpit before crash: newspaper report

A newspaper report, however, suggests the audio contains intriguing information at the least: One of the pilots is heard leaving the cockpit, then banging on the door with increasing urgency in an unsuccessful attempt to get back in.

“The guy outside is knocking lightly on the door and there is no answer,” The New York Times quotes an unidentified investigator as saying. “And then he hits the door stronger and no answer. There is never an answer.”

Eventually, the newspaper quotes the investigator as saying: “You can hear he is trying to smash the door down.”

Bibi vows to prevent Iran-West nuclear agreement

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has once again vowed to do his utmost to prevent a nuclear deal between Iran and the P5+1 group of countries.

On Wednesday, Netanyahu reiterated his earlier claims about the ongoing negotiations over Tehran’s nuclear work.

“We will continue to act to prevent the emerging [nuclear] agreement with Iran -- an agreement which will endanger us, our neighbors and the world," said the Israeli premier after meeting with the regime’s president, Reuven Rivlin.

This is while a new round of ministerial talks over Iran's nuclear program is scheduled to kick off on March 26 in the Swiss city of Lausanne.

Breaking News - Saudi Arabia starts bombing Yemen - envoy

Saudi Arabian forces, joined by nine other countries, have launched a military operation in Yemen against Shiite Houthi rebels, the Saudi ambassador to the US said. The offensive, which started with airstrikes, will also involve “other military assets.”

According to Ambassador Adel bin Ahmed Al-Jubeir, the military operation in Yemen started at 7 p.m. EST (11 p.m. GMT). The US is not participating in the operation, the envoy stressed.

Al Arabiya reported that warplanes of the Royal Saudi Air Force bombed positions of Yemen’s Houthi militia, targeting their air defenses.

Cockpit voice tape studied in Airbus crash; NYT says pilot locked out

SEYNE-LES-ALPES/PARIS, March 25 (Reuters) - Investigators have retrieved cockpit voice recordings from one of the black boxes of the German Airbus plane that crashed into the Alps, killing everyone onboard, officials said on Wednesday.

The New York Times reported that evidence from the recordings showed that one of the pilots left the cockpit and could not get back in before the flight went down.

"The guy outside is knocking lightly on the door and there is no answer," an unnamed investigator told the Times, citing the recordings. "And then he hits the door stronger and no answer. There is never an answer."

"You can hear he is trying to smash the door down," the investigator added.

Kicked to the Curb (Why the USA is the Michael Brown of nations.)

I begin to understand why the death of Ferguson, Mo, teen Michael Brown sent such shock waves through America last year. He truly symbolized our country: an overgrown, oafish, wannabe thug making one bad choice after another until his final, suicidal lurch against authority — followed by all the exculpatory lying on his behalf: the “gentle giant,” hands up, don’t shoot! This is exactly how America acts on the world stage these days. We are the Michael Brown among nations, high on exceptionalism, stoned on entitlement, swaggering moronically from one place to another grabbing what we feel like, smashing things up as we go.

Also, as in the case of the actual Michael Brown, supposedly sentient observers do not have the guts to call bullshit on all the excuses we make for ourselves. Has any self-styled presidential candidate made a peep about America’s idiotic campaign to make Ukraine the 51st state? Has Hillary (“It’s Her Turn”) Clinton asked publically why the US is egging on NATO to stage military exercises on the Russian border? Do we still have a senate Foreign Relations Committee, and does it convene once in a while? Is The New York Times so preoccupied with its “Gay Cities” index it forgot that the world is full of serious conflicts and hazards that extend beyond the choosing of apartment décor?

Bibi Wins with Racism and Revoked Promise

He won in large part by revoking his earlier pledge to support a Palestinian state, and by using last-hour racist warnings to bring out hard right voters.

Because Netanyahu’s Likud party won the largest number of seats (30) in the new Israeli parliament (120 total), he will play the major role in organizing the next government.

Even liberal Zionist Thomas Friedman had to acknowledge that Netanyahu won with “dirty” politics and the use of “dog-whistle” language. Friedman wrote in his New York Times column that “You cannot win that dirty and just walk away like nothing has happened”.

God works in mysterious ways, and sometimes causes scales to fall and opens the eyes of those who do not yet see.

The U.S.-led Multinational Force (MNA) in Iraq, the NATO International Securi-ty Assistance Force (ISAF) in Afghanistan and the U.S. Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF-A), also in Afghanistan, have carefully kept a running total of fatalities they have suffered. However, the military’s only interest has been in counting “their” bodies: 4,804 MNA soldiers have died in Iraq between March 2003 and February 2012, the date when the U.S. body counting stopped. As of early June 2013, 3,323 ISAF and OEF soldiers have lost their lives in Afghanistan since 2001.

Germanwings A320 plane crash: 'Explosion and smoke' before Airbus plunged into French Alps

Witnesses told the French Air Force they heard an explosion and saw smoke coming out of the doomed Germanwings' A320 passenger plane shortly before it crashed into the mountains near Digne, southern France, IBTimes UK can reveal.

A helicopter pilot in the French Air Force based in Orange, 30 minutes away from the site of the crash, told IBTimes UK witnesses in the crash investigation told him "they had heard an explosion and seen smoke".

While the French authorities have not confirmed these accounts, the pilot confirms the French Air Force has received a number of corroborating witness testimonies.

The pilot also confirmed that debris was found upstream from the crash site - which he said confirmed the fact that the piece of fuselage had "been detached from the aircraft before impact".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here comes the "ISIS shot it down so your kids have to invade Iran/Syria/Libya/Yemen/China/Russia/etc."

UPDATE: As of this moment, claims of an explosion and smoke prior to the actual crash have not been confirmed by any other source.

German Airbus crash in France ‘inexplicable’

The German flag carrier, Lufthansa, says the crash of its ill-fated Airbus A320 passenger aircraft in the southern French Alps, with all 150 people on board presumed dead, is “inexplicable.”

Lufthansa’s Chief Executive Officer Carsten Spor said on Wednesday, it was “inexplicable for us, how an airplane in good mechanical condition, with two experienced, Lufthansa-trained pilots, could encounter such a tragedy from cruising altitude.” . . .

. . . Hours after the deadly accident, the French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve announced that a black box belonging to the aircraft had been found.

Cazeneuve added that the black box recovered from the crash site has been damaged but is believed to be “useable.”

Later on Wednesday, French President Francois Hollande said the case for the plane’s second black box has been found without its contents, promising that French investigators would do everything to determine the cause of the crash.

This Is What It’s Like to Get Pulled over for Expired Tags in Police State USA 2015

My friend and coworker at The Daily Sheeple Lily Dane (who has no criminal record) was terrified tonight after police pulled her over for the high crime of expired tags and it turned into a bullying session that lasted over an hour and that apparently required four cop cars and SIX POLICE.

This video is the story of what happened. I’m sharing it because we live in such an insane police state that something has to change.

As our previous special report exposes, police are using pre-crime algorithms to assign color-coded threat scores to each and every one of us before an officer ever lays eyes on us based upon, among others, our social media and online posts. Is Lily special because of her political views, or is this just the way they treat everyone nowadays simply for driving with expired tags?

College groups need to form, and demand disinvestment from Monsanto.

Lindsey Graham, who piles up frequent flier miles from his junkets to Israel, made the implausible statement that “No one from Israel’s ever briefed me about the agreement.

Revealing Israel's Nuclear Secrets

It should be emphasized that in the history of the relations between the two countries, there is no other published official American document that mentions in any way the Israelis development of hydrogen bombs. Moreover, the report proclaims that the labs in Israel “are equivalent to our Los Alamos, Lawrence Livermore and Oak Ridge National Laboratories.”

In the light of Iran’s nuclear talks, the declassification’s timing could prove troublesome for Israel. It makes it much harder to maintain the policy of ambiguity about Israel’s nuclear program and, subsequently, helps Iran’s argument that it shouldn’t be denied its own ambitions.

Do Russia/NATO Military Drills Signal Something Ominous?

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post

While most individuals assume that both historical and future events arise as a result of a series of massive and seismic actions, the truth is often that a whimper precedes the bang. While many events are indeed sparked by a single definitive act, it is also true that, in the events leading up to the defining moment, rarely does the general public realize that they are walking along the path to such an event...

The time of “dreamlike trance” – July 1914 – may very well bear relevance to the time in which we find ourselves today. While we must do our best to avoid sensationalism, the question of US-Russia relations, US imperialism, and the geopolitical imperatives of the US, Russia, China, and NATO compounded by the overwhelming ignorance of the general public is one that should cause some concern as to whether or not we find ourselves in a similar situation today...

Water Wars Loom Over California As Farmers Lose Thousands of Jobs: “Wrestling Match Over Who Gets the Water”

It seems that everyone will be fighting for the last drop:

The government is revising its definition of what it means to farm, meaning some people who receive farm subsidies but don't do any of the work would receive less government cash.
Congress charged the Agriculture Department last year with creating a new definition for what it means to be "actively engaged" in farming, the criteria to receive some subsidies. USDA proposed Tuesday that farms must document that their managers put in 500 hours of substantial management work annually or 25 percent of the time necessary for the success of the farming operation to qualify.

Detroit sergeant seen on video planting evidence

A recycler sued the city and Detroit Police in federal court Monday, alleging he is being targeted in a scrap-metal crackdown after a sergeant was caught on surveillance camera planting evidence.

Dearborn resident Joseph Fawaz, whose family owns Southwest Metals, accused a sergeant on the city's Copper Theft Task Force of waging a years-long personal vendetta, bribing a witness and arresting employees. The task force member, Sgt. Rebecca McKay, allegedly was caught on the scrap metal shop's surveillance camera planting evidence during a raid, according to the lawsuit.

France freaks out over "We Are Not Charlie Hebdo"

Along with his statement calling for outlawing “conspiracy theories” Hollande issued a diatribe attacking me personally, alongside four other “leading conspiracist intellectuals.”

Why are the French authorities so angry with me?

They are freaking out about the new book I am about to publish, We Are NOT Charlie Hebdo: Free Thinkers Question the French 9/11.
