FLASHBACK 2002 - The USA PATRIOT Act Was Planned Before 9/11

Many people do not know that the USA PATRIOT Act was already written and ready to go long before September 11th. Recent criticism of Bush's admission that he had received warnings only weeks before September 11th has made it more important to understand the origins of the USAPA.

The USA PATRIOT Act -- the so-called "Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism Act of 2001," a.k.a. the USAPA -- was enacted in the immediate wake of 9/11, riding a wave of fear that spread over the nation. This Act has caused much concern amongst civil rights advocates. The Administration, however, responded to such concerns by calling critics unpatriotic. Now, the White House has had a similar response to critics of Bush's recent admission of early warnings.

Feds Retaliate against the Bundy Ranch and the Southern Nevada People

On Friday October 10th, 2014 a Notice from the federal registry reveals that the federal government is mounting retaliations against the Bundy family and the Southern Nevada people.

Federal Register / Vol. 79, No.197 Notice, outlines plans to make the Bundy ranch and most of the rest of Southern Nevada, Areas of Critical Environmental Concern (ACECs). 90 days from October 10th, 2014 these proposals will become federal law without consent from the Nevada State legislatures or the people of Southern Nevada.

Areas of Critical Environmental Concern (ACECs) are human restricted management areas. ACECs have been a tool used by the federal government to gain further control of large masses of western lands and the resources.

As proposed, nearly 3 million acres in Southern Nevada will be locked away from the people. This includes most uses on the land (recreational, agricultural or otherwise).

Listed below are just a few of the outlined restriction that come with ACECs:

Demand that the United States Congress hold hearings on the Sandy Hook School Shooting Massacre

This FEMA Capstone event has created Panic and Fear across this country. It has Inflicted Emotional Distress on millions and millions of Americans who where brainwashed by the 24/7 National Television News cycle.

Parents of the supposed children filed complaints to the CT Attorney General George Jespen demanding more money from the $29 million dollars raised by the United Way Western Ct for the death of their child at Sandy Hook.

Yet they have yet to file a lawsuit against the Newtown School Board, the Newtown Police Department, the CT State Police and the Medical Emergency providers that did not go inside the Sandy Hook Elementary School the entire day to save those children and school staff from serious injurioes and those clinging to life.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am not in favor of a new government investigation because it just gives the government another chance to polish up the lies at taxpayer expense. I do favor everyone looking at the facts for themselves, understand that there is a lot of total BS being pumped onto the internet to try to keep you confused, and come to your own conclusion. Nowhere in the Constitution does it saw We The People have to let the government make up our minds for us about anything.

Texas energy group asks court to halt fracking ban

A North Texas city that sits atop a natural gas reserve is preparing for an extended court battle after voters made it the first in the state to ban further hydraulic fracturing — a fight that cities nationwide considering similar laws will likely be watching closely.

An industry group and the state's little-known but powerful General Land Office responded quickly to the measure Denton approved Tuesday night, seeking an injunction in District Court to stop it from being enforced.

Vote all you want. The secret government won’t change.

Though it’s a bedrock American principle that citizens can steer their own government by electing new officials, Glennon suggests that in practice, much of our government no longer works that way. In a new book, “National Security and Double Government,” he catalogs the ways that the defense and national security apparatus is effectively self-governing, with virtually no accountability, transparency, or checks and balances of any kind. He uses the term “double government”: There’s the one we elect, and then there’s the one behind it, steering huge swaths of policy almost unchecked. Elected officials end up serving as mere cover for the real decisions made by the bureaucracy.

Western News-Suppression about the Downing of MH-17 Malaysian Jet

he cause of the shooting-down of the Malaysian passenger plane MH-17 on July 17th (while that plane was flying over the conflict-zone during Ukraine’s civil war) is becoming clearer and clearer, despite the rigorous continuing attempts by Western ‘news’ media to cover it up and to hide from the public the evidence that clearly shows what brought down this airliner.

Robot Catamites, Open Borders AND Programming your Subconscious.

I was in one of the poorest parts of India, although there are other locations that are even more extreme. There were a lot of things I was not prepared for, given that everything I knew about India was based on things I had heard or read. The reality of it was a great deal more overwhelming.

IRS officials admit never trying to retrieve Lois Lerner's 'missing' emails

Now that Republican lawmakers will control both houses of the U.S. Congress beginning in Jan. 1, 2015, many conservatives and libertarians want them to pursue the truth regarding corruption, abuse and criminal acts within the decidedly partisan Internal Revenue Service. A top nonprofit, nonpartisan Washington, D.C., watchdog reported on Wednesday that officials from the scandal-ridden Internal Revenue Service (IRS) after saying they would do all they could to retrieve the requested documents, especially the IRS's controversial employee Lois Lerner's emails, admitted that they did absolutely nothing to try to find the mysterious "missing emails."

NSA Chief Bet Money on AT&T as It Spied on You

The former head of the world’s biggest spy agency didn’t just oversee the collection of billions of AT&T records. He also tried to make money off its customers.

At the same time Gen. Keith Alexander was running the National Security Agency, the United States’ biggest spying outfit, he was also trading stocks in an obscure technology company that had a sweetheart deal with one of the NSA’s most important sources of intelligence—the global phone and Internet giant AT&T.

4 Impressively Insane Reactions to Bad Online Reviews

Obviously, if a reviewer makes up a story about human fingers in food because she didn't approve of the waitress' hairstyle, the restaurant has a right to take action. That's what defamation laws are for. But some recent threats against reviewers have moved way beyond "dealing with crazy liars" and well into "fuck anyone who doesn't like us" territory. One example is so-called "non-disparagement" clauses. You know those long "terms of sale" agreements on websites that no one actually reads because there's a whole goddamn Internet out there to look at instead? You can just shove a sentence or two in there about how the customer is not allowed to complain online, and boom! You're bad-review proof!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would have counter-sued under the First Amendment right to freedom of speech and made an example of those bastards! We have a right to complain about crappy products, especially in an age where selling crappy products at inflated prices has become the standard American business model!

Counter-Intelligence: Spying Deters Democracy Part 1: Interview with Filmmaker Scott Noble

Kim Petersen: What was your goal in making Counter-Intelligence?

Scott Noble: My basic goal was to help people understand intelligence agencies and the techniques they use to advance policy. Most documentaries dealing with e.g. the CIA attempt to prove or disprove a particular theory about a controversial event. There is little in the way of structural analysis. In making the film I set out to explore how these agencies function in the real world. How do they keep secrets? What are some common m.o.’s? What is their ultimate purpose? In a broader sense I wanted to ask whether democracy is even possible when organizations like the CIA exist. We are currently living under a hybrid of plutocracy (from plouto, “wealth”) and cryptocracy (from krypton, “hidden”) that benefits about 1 percent of the human population. It’s no secret we’re ruled by the rich, but there is a relative lack of understanding about just how much information is kept hidden from the public. A 2004 study by Peter Galison at Harvard concluded that “the classified universe is certainly not smaller, and very probably much larger than this unclassified one.”

‘Election Eve Dump:’ Eric Holder Releases Fast and Furious Documents That Got Him Cited for Contempt

Justice Department officials provided House investigators with thousands of documents related to Operation Fast and Furious that President Obama had previously claimed were exempt from congressional review.

In an “election eve dump,” as House Oversight and Government Reform Committee chairman Darrell Issa (R., Calif.) put it, DOJ handed over 64,280 pages of documents, a release that is still only a partial fulfillment of the committee’s request.

“This production is nonetheless a victory for the legislative branch, a victory for transparency, and a victory for efforts to check Executive Branch power,” Issa said of the release.

Government Lied About Pandemic Which Killed 50 Million People … Attempt to “Prevent Panic” Backfired

In the United States, national and local government and public health authorities badly mishandled the [1918 "Spanish Flu"] epidemic [which killed up to 50 million people worldwide], offering a useful case study.

The context is important. Every country engaged in World War I tried to control public perception. To avoid hurting morale, even in the nonlethal first wave the press in countries fighting in the war did not mention the outbreak. (But Spain was not at war and its press wrote about it, so the pandemic became known as the Spanish flu).

The United States was no different. In 1917 California Senator Hiram Johnson made the since-famous observation that “The first casualty when war comes is truth.” The U.S. government passed a law that made it punishable by 20 years in jail to “utter, print, write or publish any disloyal, profane, scurrilous, or abusive language about the government of the United States.”

Obama Administration Praises Freedom of the Press … While GUTTING It in the U.S.

The U.S. is actually one of the world’s worst offenders against press freedom … treating reporters like terrorists and criminals.

Even top mainstream reporters have said that this administration is more hostile to the press than any other in history.

As just one example, the Washington Post reports that USA Today Washington Bureau Chief Susan Page says the current administration is more threatening to press freedom than “any administration in American history,” that she was “really worried” about what could happen if the White House continues to prevent reporters from doing their job of telling the news and telling the truth, and:

This administration has been more restrictive and more challenging to the press, more dangerous to the press, really, than any administration in American history.

Police crash Halloween party to ensure no dancing without a permit

A Halloween-themed private event was targeted by police when there was a suspicion of dancing without a permit.

It happened at the 2014 “Monster Mash” dance party, the third annual event of its kind. It was put on by the event promotion company, Heart of Dixie, and held at the Fiesta Fun Center in St. George, Utah (population 75,000).

Over 400 guests were enjoying the festivities at the October 31st event, participating in all-night enjoyment of bumper boats, go-karts, mini golf, and music.

After 9:30 p.m., St. George police arrived in force to investigate a case of unpermitted dancing. Around 5-6 officers challenged the organizers of the event as not having obtained a proper permit to host the dancing. The venue owner, event promoter, and security coordinator each presented their respective permits, which had been previously approved and issued by the city.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

...So THIS is how police officers in St. George Utah interpret the phrase "to protect and serve"?!?!?

Obama’s Mental Health Mandate

Using the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre as its justification, the Obama administration has recently given the psychiatric business and pharmaceutical industry a major gift by quietly introducing a behavioral and mental health program in public schools throughout the United States.

Introducing psychiatric explanations and methodologies into school environments guarantees a growing customer base for the psychiatric profession and pharmaceutical industry. Alongside government’s increasing control of healthcare, the technocratic surveillance and management of everyday thought and behavior is likewise emerging as part of what is deceptively termed “wellness.” In reality such efforts ensure an ever-expanding bureaucracy, handsomely line the pockets of a select few, and further normalize a culture of learned helplessness and control within an environment that already privileges conformity as a matter of routine.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Knowing that the public school district in which my child was enrolled was doing this, possibly without parental consent, would get me to pull that kid out of that school so quickly that the principal's head would be spinning, and start home schooling them.

Free College or Another New War?

Noting that U.S. college costs have gone up 500% since 1985, the Washington Post recommends seven countries where U.S. students can go to college for free without bothering to learn the language of the natives or anything so primitive.

These are nations with less wealth than the United States has, but which make college free or nearly free, both for citizens and for dangerous illegals visiting their Homelands.

How do they do it?

Three of them have a higher top tax rate than the United States has, but four of them don’t.

What does the United States spend its money on that these other countries do not? What is the largest public program in the United States? What makes up over 50% of federal discretionary spending in the United States?

If you said “war,” it’s possible you were educated in a fine foreign country.

Drug Makers Push for Indemnity for Fast-Tracked Ebola Vaccines

For starters, vaccine manufacturers are demanding indemnity against lawsuits that may arise from the use of a fast-tracked Ebola vaccine,2 similar to the indemnity claimed by the United Nations (UN), whose peacekeepers stand accused of causing the cholera outbreak in Haiti after the 2010 earthquake that devastated the small country.

An estimated 700,000 Haitians have contracted cholera and 8,500 have died from it since the beginning of the outbreak. While the source of the outbreak could not be conclusively determined, a group of Haitians filed a lawsuit against the UN in 2013.

A lawyer for the US Justice Department recently called for the case to be dismissed, saying the UN is "absolutely immune" to claims of wrongdoing.3 This is the kind of "immunity" vaccine makers want as well, but indemnity might not be quite as easy to get as initially thought in this case.

No matter who wins, today's election outcome can't stop America's head-on course toward self-destruction

Regardless of the outcome of today's U.S. mid-term elections, there are some things that won't change one iota. While most of America has finally come to realize what a disaster Obama's presidency has really been in real-world terms, there are at least five other disasters looming in America's near future. And neither Republicans nor Democrats have any real plan to deal with these issues... especially when it's so much easier to get elected by slandering your opponent rather than proposing practical solutions.

So here's my warning on the five biggest threats still facing America in the years ahead. Don't hold your breath thinking anyone in Washington D.C. is willing to address any of these. After all, they are the ones who created most of these problems in the first place.

Infuriating Facts About Our Disappearing Middle-Class Wealth

A recent posting detailed how upper middle class Americans are rapidly losing ground to the one-percenters who averaged $5 million in wealth gains over just three years. It also noted that the global 1% has increased their wealth from $100 trillion to $127 trillion in just three years.

The information came from the Credit Suisse 2014 Global Wealth Databook (GWD), which goes on to reveal much more about the disappearing middle class.

Rulers Seek to Rule

Rulers seek to rule. Well, that seems a bit obvious, doesn’t it? And yet, time after time, we elect new leaders, imagining that, “This new group will be better—they’ll represent us as they promised.”

Unfortunately, the democratic system doesn’t really work very well at all. The idea is supposed to be that if old leaders overstep their bounds, new candidates may come forth who promise a reversal of the autocracy of the previous group, and we elect them. They will then proceed to implement that reversal.

Of course, we all know that it’s this last bit that consistently fails to happen. The new group does not fulfil its promises to the electorate—in fact, it almost invariably seeks to increase its power over them. And as each group assumes greater power than the previous one, the country slowly declines, until ultimately, it reaches the state of tyranny.

Transcript-- Ray McGovern on His Arrest and What he Wanted to Ask and Say to General Petraeus

So Petraeus is the guy, for me representing the responsible analysts who kept telling president Obama, look Afghanistan is a fool's errand. You can surge there just as you surged in Iraq it's not going to make any difference. So I get arrested and I was kept in prison overnight and Petraeus gets lauded I don't really have an account of what happened there. But those are big fans you know and I don't know if he wore the merit badges that he had got from Boy Scouts and other Medals. But he has been known to wear those on a civilian suit, but in any case he probably was given many encomia which was very ill deserved and I only regret that I didn't have a chance to ask him some real questions as I did when I asked Rumsfeld in May of 2006 and I suspect, Rob that's one reason why they wouldn't let me in.

Ex-CIA analyst and activist Ray McGovern arrested in NYC

Former CIA analyst and anti-war activist Ray McGovern was arrested in New York City as he attempted to attend a speech by former CIA director David Petraeus.

McGovern was kept out of the event Thursday by security guards. Shortly afterwards, the NYPD officers arrived and took him in custody.

The 75-year old activist was charged with resisting arrest, criminal trespass and disorderly conduct. He was scheduled to be arraigned on Friday.

He said he had ticket to attend the event but was not allowed to get inside.

Richard Marini, an activist with World Can’t Wait, said he saw McGovern as he was being apprehended.

He said McGovern had his arms twisted tightly behind his back and was obviously in pain while he was being dragged to the police car.

Other witnesses said he was screaming in protest of how police officers were hurting his shoulder.

Illegal immigrant children entering the country without their parents or adults, now called “Unaccompanied Adults,” or UACs by the government, are receiving a tax payer subsidized bounty.

From petting zoos with miniature ponies to a tilapia fish farm operations and guitar lessons, UACs are lavished with perks, according to documents released by Sen. Charles E. Grassley, an Iowa Republican.

Preferred contractors reap handsome profit when they provide these dished out perks, in some cases upward to $329 per child a day.

Meanwhile, for citizens, federal and state government have decided to cutback on food stamps and unemployment benefits.

Obama's Soak the Rich 60% Tax Hike on Investment Income Is Drowning the Middle Class

The curse of the U.S. economy today is the downward trend in “take-home pay.” This is the most crucial economic indicator for most Americans. ... Most workers’ pay has not kept up with inflation for at least six years. ...

Why aren’t wages rising? There are several reasons, including that many jobs today don’t pay as well as the ones lost during the recession. ObamaCare has made health insurance more expensive for businesses—as the nation’s biggest employer, Wal-Mart , recently reported—and that takes a bite out of take-home pay. Yet one factor is often overlooked: the tax increase on “the rich” at the beginning of 2013.

In California, Consumer Watchdog's Prop 45 Challenges Obamacare — From the Left

Blue Shield of California, one of the state's four major health insurers, has a sales office on the 20th floor of the Pacific Corporate Towers in El Segundo. Had the employees peered down to the plaza on a recent Tuesday morning, they would have seen a small cluster of picketers.

From 300 feet up, it would be impossible to read the signs, or hear the chants, or smell the aroma drifting off the white pickup truck that was parked below in a loading zone. But on the ground, the scent is unmistakable: manure.

Jamie Court, the president of Consumer Watchdog, shovels some into a wheelbarrow and announces that he will be delivering it to Blue Shield's executives.

"We're gonna give them back what they've been giving us for the last five months," he tells a row of news cameras. "We're not buying their bull."

FBI Holds Secret Meeting To Scare Congress Into Backdooring Phone Encryption

In September, both Apple and Google announced plans to encrypt information on iOS and Android devices by default. Almost immediately, there was a collective freakout by law enforcement types. But, try as they might, these law enforcement folks couldn't paint any realistic scenario of where this would be a serious problem. Sure, they conjured up scenarios, but upon inspection they pretty much all fell apart. Instead, what was clear was that encryption could protectusers from people copying information off of phones without permission, and, in fact, the FBI itself recommends you encrypt the data on your phone.

But it didn't stop FBI director James Comey from ignoring the advice of his own agency and pushing for a new law that would create back doors (he called them front doors, but when asked to explain the difference, he admitted that he wasn't "smart enough" to understand the distinction) in such encryption.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Breakable encryption means the FBI can spy on law abiding citizens, but as we proved with our NSA challenges, real criminals and terrorists will remain invisible.

BILL CLINTON: Republicans Are Trying To 'Cash In On The Misery Of The American People'

Former President Bill Clinton claimed on Thursday that one of the main reasons Republicans are expected to perform so strongly in the upcoming midterm elections is their willingness to capitalize on the lingering effects of the 2008 economic recession.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"And you Americans are all WRONG to decide who to vote for because of irrelevant things like whether you have a job or not, lost your home, are going hungry, had your kid killed in a war on the other side of the planet. Really, you need to decide who to vote for based on who has the best TV ads (like my wife) and who is the snappiest dresser (like my wife) and who has the best hair styles (like my wife). What is WRONG with you people?" -- Monica's rival's husband.

It should be remembered that when Bill Clinton took office, there was a huge cash surplus built up on the Social Security trust fund in anticipation of the baby-boomer retirements. Clinton created his magical budget surplus by "borrowing" that extra cash and spending it as general revenue, replacing it with special Treasury Bonds which the government is now unable to redeem, adding to the misery of retirees who are being told their benefits must be cut.

The US Economy Runs Into A Problem If Oil Hits $75

US shale oil is now the marginal swing barrel in the new world oil order, and as Goldman Sachs warns (despite Larry Kudlow apparently knowing better), a decline in WTI to $75/bbl would start to significantly slow US shale growth (and thus employment, capex, and the entire US economy).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obama was intent on harming Russia's oil exports and made a deal with Saudi Arabia to increase production to crush oil prices. But, as has become the hallmark of decision-making by the White House, nobody thought this all the way through as to what harm it might bring to the US. And Saudi Arabia is laughing that US attempts at oil independence are being crushed under the anti-Russian agenda and US dependence on Saudi Arabia will increase!

BEX ALERT - Blame the fall in homeownership on Generation X: Why did the homeownership rate fall so dramatically for those 35 to 44?

We’ve all heard about the broke Millennials living at home with mom and dad unable to move out into a very expensive rental. For years, we’ve been told that somehow this young group of people would represent some pent up demand to buy homes. This demand never materialized. Instead, you have tight inventory in certain markets being fought over by investors and those willing to pay current prices while stretching their budgets. Yet volume remains incredibly pathetic. The homeownership rate has fallen dramatically and some point the blame to the Millennials. But as it turns out, the big drop has come from those 35 to 44. Generation X overall has been a massive drag on the housing market. The young are simply not buying homes like they once did and many are opting into the rental market. So how big of a drag is Generation X on the housing market?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Another puff piece trying to find a scapegoat for the economic woes while avoiding a mention of the root cause of all of the problems, which are those private central banks issuing all of the public currency as a loan at interest, a system which by design produces more debt than money with which to pay that debt.

Cover-Up Alleged in Probe of USS Liberty

A former Navy attorney who helped lead the military investigation of the 1967 Israeli attack on the USS Liberty that killed 34 American servicemen says former President Lyndon Johnson and his defense secretary, Robert McNamara, ordered that the inquiry conclude the incident was an accident.

In a signed affidavit released at a Capitol Hill news conference, retired Capt. Ward Boston said Johnson and McNamara told those heading the Navy's inquiry to "conclude that the attack was a case of 'mistaken identity' despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary."

It was “one of the classic all-American cover-ups,” said retired Admiral Thomas Moorer, a former Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman who spent a year investigating the attack as part of an independent panel he formed with other former military officials. The panel also included a former US ambassador to Saudi Arabia, James Akins.

This is absurd. If it was a no-knock warrant, then David had no way of knowing the intruder he was defending his home from was an officer!

9/11 Was NATO’s License to Expand Globally

The 9/11 attacks on the United States undoubtedly benefited a number of actors, including the American military-intelligence complex, Israel, and most definitely, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). The Cold War-era, the area of responsibility for which had long been confined to Europe and North America, used the provisions of Article 5 of the NATO Charter – which states that an attack on one member is an attack on all – to extend NATO’s power deep into Eurasia, particularly in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Kyrgyzstan.

After engaging in out-of-area invasions and occupations of Afghanistan, Iraq, Somalia, Libya, and Syria and, again in Iraq, against the «Islamic State,» the «North Atlantic» military bloc has transformed itself from a Cold War defensive alliance into a global offensive axis of nations that acts with or without United Nations authorization.

Money doesn't Kill People, Bankers Kill People.

Each of us must manage individually or in groups within the sad and irrevocable decay of the world we knew. It's decline accelerates with every passing day. As that progresses, conditions worsen. It will come to pass that many will find it no longer possible to live where they are, while at the same time, having waited too long, are no longer able to move away. Things can occur at a previously unimagined speed, while taking all kinds of frightening and unexpected turns. It stands to reason that the further away one is from the epicenters, the better ones chances are.

Growing unease among parents, lawmakers over RFID biometric tracking of students

The relatively new tracking technology allows schools to more accurately follow student attendance, lunch purchases and students who ride buses, but lawmakers in many states have banned specific types of student data collection over privacy concerns, Governing.com reports.

"This year, Florida became the first state to ban the use of biometric identification in its schools. Kansas said biometric data cannot be collected without student or parental consent. New Hampshire, Colorado and North Carolina said the state education departments cannot collect and store biometric data as part of student records.

Yet, four months later, in September of 2011, James Curry threw out the charge and Beardsley faced no repercussions for taking the life of another.

Anti-quarantine nurse Hickox was trained as intelligence officer by the CDC

Nurse Kaci Hickox, who has made headlines over the last few days by refusing to quarantine herself after returning from the Ebola front lines in Africa, turns out to have been trained as an "intelligence officer" under a two-year CDC program modeled after the U.S. military.

As you can see from the document below, Hickox graduated from a two-year CDC intelligence officer training program in 2012. This is the same nurse whose LinkedIn page was recently scrubbed to hide her ties to the CDC, an agency that stands to benefit tremendously in both political power and budgets if an Ebola outbreak sweeps across America.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is not the first time serious questions have been raised about CDC's "Intelligence Officers", who operate primarily as information warfare specialists, including attacks on those who question the safety and efficacy of vaccines!

20-Year CBS News Veteran, Sharyl Attkisson, Details Massive Censorship and Propaganda in Mainstream Media

Reporters on the ground aren’t necessarily ideological, Attkisson says, but the major network news decisions get made by a handful of New York execs who read the same papers and think the same thoughts.

Often they dream up stories beforehand and turn the reporters into “casting agents,” told “we need to find someone who will say . . .” that a given policy is good or bad. “We’re asked to create a reality that fits their New York image of what they believe,” she writes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Our job is to give people not what they want, but what we decide they ought to have." -- Richard Salent, Former President CBS News.

"News is what someone wants to suppress. Everything else is advertising". -- former NBC news President Rubin Frank

Asked to give a toast before the prestigious New York Press Club in 1880, John Swinton, the former Chief of Staff at the New York Sun, made this candid confession [it's worth noting that Swinton was called "The Dean of His Profession" by other newsmen, who admired him greatly]:

" There is no such thing, at this date of the world's history, as an independent press. You know it and I know it. There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinions out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for similar things, and any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job.

If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone. The business of the journalist is to destroy the truth; to lie outright; to pervert; to vilify; to fawn at the feet of Mammon, and to sell the country for his daily bread. You know it and I know it and what folly is this toasting an independent press. We are the tools and vassals of the rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes. "

Amazon-CIA $600 Million Deal Facing Scrutiny: ‘What’s the CIA Doing on Amazon’s Cloud?’

A billboard challenging Amazon to fully disclose the terms of its $600 million contract to provide cloud computing services for the Central Intelligence Agency has been unveiled at a busy intersection near Amazon’s Seattle headquarters.

The billboard’s launch — asking “the $600 million question: What’s the CIA Doing on Amazon’s Cloud?” — marks the escalation of a campaign by the online activist organizations RootsAction.org and ExposeFacts.org. The groups are calling for accountability from Amazon in an effort to inform the public of serious privacy implications of the Amazon-CIA collaboration. (ExposeFacts.org is a project of the Institute for Public Accuracy.)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Given that CIA and Amazon are swapping tongue kisses these days, it becomes understandable why Alexa, owned by Amazon, is rigging the rankings of independent media websites lower and pushing up rankings of pro-government websites.

More “War on Terror” Abuses – Spying Powers Are Used for Terrorism Only 0.5% of the Time

The Patriot Act continues to wreak its havoc on civil liberties. Section 213 was included in the Patriot Act over the protests of privacy advocates and granted law enforcement the power to conduct a search while delaying notice to the suspect of the search. Known as a “sneak and peek” warrant, law enforcement was adamant Section 213 was needed to protect against terrorism. But the latest government report detailing the numbers of “sneak and peek” warrants reveals that out of a total of over 11,000 sneak and peek requests, only 51 were used for terrorism. Yet again, terrorism concerns appear to be trampling our civil liberties.

Deep Undercover: Police Officer in UK Fathered a Child with an Activist as Part of an Investigation

Last Friday British media reported that the UK’s Metropolitan Police would pay £400,000 (about $680,000) in a settlement with a woman, known only as Jacqui, who was conned by a man who fathered her first child, said that he loved her, and then one day disappeared. She knew him as Bob Robinson. His real name, as she would learn 25 years later, was Bob Lambert. He was an operative with the Special Demonstration Squad (SDS), a special unit within the British police that infiltrated a host of environmentalist groups to gather intelligence. In several cases the operatives, almost always men, established long-term intimate relationships with women in order to gain access to the world of underground animal rights or environmental activists.

Feds Retaliate against the Bundy Ranch and the Southern Nevada People

Feds Retaliate against the Bundy Ranch and the Southern Nevada People On Friday October 10th, 2014 a Notice from the federal registry reveals that the federal government is mounting retaliations against the Bundy family and the Southern Nevada people.

Federal Register / Vol. 79, No.197 Notice, outlines plans to make the Bundy ranch and most of the rest of Southern Nevada, Areas of Critical Environmental Concern (ACECs). 90 days from October 10th, 2014 these proposals will become federal law without consent from the Nevada State legislatures or the people of Southern Nevada.

Areas of Critical Environmental Concern (ACECs) are human restricted management areas. ACECs have been a tool used by the federal government to gain further control of large masses of western lands and the resources.

As proposed, nearly 3 million acres in Southern Nevada will be locked away from the people. This includes most uses on the land (recreational, agricultural or otherwise).

Webmaster's Commentary:

Ebola Nurse’s Ties to CDC Scrubbed From Website – Is Far Left Progressive & Obama Supporter

Kaci Hickox, the nurse who was quarantined in New Jersey over her high risk status as a possible Ebola carrier, has ties to the CDC which have been deliberately hidden by the mainstream media.

Right now, a war is waging between states like New Jersey, New York and Illinois — which have all decided to quarantine travelers at high risk of Ebola infections — and the federal government which is adamantly opposed to border security, medical quarantines and travel bans.

Kaci Hickox emerged in the center of this debate just yesterday when she complained of being “interrogated” and held in violation of her civil rights. Kaci’s LinkedIn.com profile, which described her links to the CDC, was scrubbed from the web earlier today, and even Google cache has strangely been cleared of her profile which previously detailed her ties to the CDC.

In 2011, the town confiscated large amounts of personal property from Hoeppner because he refused to pay the fines. Several tractors, pallets and equipment were auctioned off by the government for “pennies on the dollar” according to Hoeppner’s attorney, Ryan Lister.

Next, the town imposed a $500-a-day fine on Hoeppner for refusing to remove certain equipment from his property. Eventually, the bill ran up close to $100,000, and the town came to collect the money with an armored truck and two dozen cops.

Nobel Peace Prize Winners Urge Obama To Release CIA Torture Report

Twelve Nobel Peace Prize winners penned an open letter to President Barack Obama urging his administration to release a U.S. Senate report on the CIA's use of torture.

In the letter, released Sunday night on TheCommunity.com, the laureates asked for "full disclosure to the American people of the extent and use of torture and rendition by American soldiers, operatives, and contractors, as well as the authorization of torture and rendition by American officials." The letter also pushed for a clear plan for the closing of Guantanamo Bay and other international sites where the U.S. has engaged in torture.

The letter was signed by José Ramos-Horta, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, F.W. De Klerk, Leymah Gbowee, Muhammad Yunus, John Hume, Bishop Carlos X. Belo, Betty Williams, Adolfo Perez Esquivel, Jody Williams, Oscar Arias Sanchez and Mohammad ElBaradei.

The laureates spoke out sharply against any use of torture, but said that the U.S.' tactics were particularly troubling.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to those who signed this petition: what you are asking for will only happen when pigs fly.

At the end of the day, the US President Obama is no less a complete tool of the banks and the corporations which put him into office than was his Republican predecessor.

Banks and corporations love war, because war is profitable. And if it takes torture elicit confessions with which to justify wars, US leadership is certainly not morally opposed to torturing.

We have known, since the time of the Catholic Inquisition, that torture simply gets the tortured person to say what the torturer wants them to say in order to get the torture to stop; it rarely produces actionable intelligence, if at all.

Police impose checkpoints, deploy drones at high school football game

Fans were startled by the heavy presence of police officers, drone surveillance, and warrantless checkpoints upon entry at the local high school football game.

The prison-like security at Summerville High School was called “the reality of the world we live in today.” As students and fans filed into the homecoming football game on Friday, October 24th, 2014, they were forced to place their belongings in a bin for police examination, then walk through a metal detector. Stadium-goers were restricted from bringing certain items into the stands.

Fans also were quick to notice the conspicuous presence of police officers mixed among the crowd and perched on the rooftops, surveillance drones whirring overhead, and even SWAT team members ready for action.

The security bonanza was imposed because school district officials had allegedly been tipped off that rival gangs might fight at the game, WCIV reported. No incidents of violence were reported.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have precisely two words for the parents and the students who were "treated" to this behaviour, courtesy of their local police: home schooling.

Hoeppner has strongly disputed the fines that have been imposed on him, and he has been through multiple lawsuits and appeals with the city, in a fight to use his property the way that he wants to.

Surprise! Valerie Jarrett helped cover up Fast and Furious

Sometimes those who follow politics closely erroneously assume that everyone else follows it closely as well. But for those of you who don’t, here’s a brief explanation of Fast and Furious:

It’s not just a movie series, it’s the name of an operation where the Obama administration illegally gave thousands of weapons, including military grade guns, to Mexican criminals, supposedly in an attempt to track criminal activity in Mexico. However, not only was the operation a complete failure, hundreds of Mexicans (and at least one American) were killed with these weapons. When Congressional investigators, who, by all accounts, were not aware of the operation (and did not authorize it) began investigating it, Obama claimed executive privilege in order to keep damning information about his involvement in the operation kept secret.

Wisconsin cops deploy armored vehicle to collect fines from 75-year-old man for messy land

A 75-year-old Wisconsin man is considering filing a federal civil rights lawsuit after officials in Marathon County sent an armored military to collect fines that resulted from a property dispute.

Attorney Ryan Lister told the Milwaikee-Wisconsin Journal Sentinel that the Marathon County Sheriff’s Department overreacted when it sent 24 armed officers and the Marathon County Response Vehicle (MARV) to 75-year-old Roger Hoeppner’s home earlier this month.

Lister said that his client contacted him as soon as he noticed the deputies arrive on the property, but roadblocks prevented the attorney from reaching the home until Hoeppner had been taken away in handcuffs.

“Rather than provide Mr. Hoeppner or his counsel notice…and attempt to collect without spending thousands of taxpayer dollars on the military-style maneuvers, the town unilaterally decided to enforce its civil judgment” with overwhelming force, the attorney noted.

New report documents federal clampdown on scientists' freedom of expression

In February 2012, the scientific journal Nature published an editorial opinion piece, Frozen Out, calling on the Canadian government to reform policies that restrict media access to federal scientists. This followed numerous stories documenting delays and confusion in how different federal departments respond to requests for media interviews on scientific matters.

How has the Harper government reacted? A new report, Can Scientists Speak, finds that federal media policies remain far more restrictive than those in the United States, and gives low to failing grades to nearly all 16 departments that employ scientists.

Iran Feature: “US Supplying Weapons & Aid to Islamic State in Iraq” — Confusion, Ignorance, or Crude Propaganda?

Claims from Iranian officials that the US is secretly supporting the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria — even as it bombs the jihadists in both countries — are far from unusual. Since the US airstrikes began in early August, the Supreme Leader, Speaker of Parliament Ali Larijani, and military commanders have all accused Washington of creating the Islamic State’s threat.

However, the deputy head of Iran’s armed forces, General Massoud Jazayeri (pictured), has found a way of enhancing the allegations — on Saturday, he effectively redrew the map of the region to prove the US perfidy.

French "hate speech" lawsuit leading to worldwide online censorship

A little over a year after a French court forced Twitter to remove some anti-Semitic content, experts say the ruling has had a ripple effect, leading other Internet companies to act more aggressively against hate speech in an effort to avoid lawsuits.

The 2013 ruling by the Paris Court of Appeals settled a lawsuit brought the year before by the Union of Jewish Students of France over the hashtag #UnBonJuif, which means “a good Jew” and which was used to index thousands of anti-Semitic comments that violated France’s law against hate speech.

Since then, YouTube has permanently banned videos posted by Dieudonne, a French comedian with 10 convictions for inciting racial hatred against Jews. And in February, Facebook removed the page of French Holocaust denier Alain Soral for “repeatedly posting things that don’t comply with the Facebook terms,” according to the company. Soral’s page had drawn many complaints in previous years but was only taken down this year.

Instead, the money was seized solely because she had deposited less than $10,000 at a time, which they viewed as an attempt to avoid triggering a required government report.

“How can this happen?” Ms. Hinders said in a recent interview. “Who takes your money before they prove that you’ve done anything wrong with it?”

Israel's internment regime

Every so often some smug liberal will ask the annoying question, Where is the Palestinian Gandhi? Why do the Palestinians not try non-violent resistance to Israeli occupation? And so on, in monotonous fashion.

Those same smug liberals do not bother to inform themselves about the basic realities of Israel's West Bank imprisonment regime.

Palestinian activists, human rights defenders, journalists and academics are frequently picked up off the streets, out of their homes in the middle of the night, in front of their families – Israel's thug soldiers take them off to jail and intern them without trial, often in conditions of torture and isolation.

Military courts then rubber-stamp the actions of Israel's military and spy agencies.

Orwell Was Right: MI5 spied on leading British historians for decades, secret files reveal

Eric Hobsbawm and Christopher Hill had phones tapped, correspondence intercepted and friends and wives monitored
MI5 amassed hundreds of records on Eric Hobsbawm and Christopher Hill, two of Britain’s leading historians who were both once members of the Communist party, secret files have revealed.

The scholars were subjected to persistent surveillance for decades as MI5 and police special branch officers tapped and recorded their telephone calls, intercepted their private correspondence and monitored their contacts, the files show. Some of the surveillance gave MI5 more details about their targets’ personal lives than any threat to national security.

George Soros and his Kind are Evil, Mass Murdering Monsters.

You got all kinds of evil running loose in these times. By definition, these are evil times, being as it is the Kali Yuga. The very worst of us profit without reserve and the best of us are hammered into the pavement. There's supposed to be some kind of justice in this but... those of us who are within the constraints of single lifetimes and lacking the panorama view of the realized, are hard pressed to see it. It's there somewhere. Of course, I'm speaking only for those of us that believe in something. For those of us that believe in nothing, except ones own blind, naked ignorance, the appearance of justice is nowhere to be seen. There's one thing we can certainly presume is true and that is that we will find out at some point, even if... in the cases of those who believe nothing, they find nothing. It might be that that is how it works; to each according to what they do or do not believe.

AG Holder lied: Fast and Furious cover-up leads into the Oval Office

With Attorney General Eric Holder on his way out of office and the newer stories taking center stage in the Obama cavalcade of scandals, many believed the investigation into the botched Operation Fast and Furious was DOA (dead-on-arrival). However on Thursday, a public-interest group renowned for uncovering government corruption and criminal activity released Department of Justice (DOJ) documents that revealed that not only did Holder lie under oath before a congressional panel, but that the cover-up leads right into the Oval Office.

The DEA Once Turned A 14-Year-Old Into A Drug Kingpin. Welcome To The War On Drugs

Just months after Edward Snowden unmasked the National Security Agency's massive domestic spying program, The New York Times broke news of the Hemisphere Project, which pairs experts from telecommunications giant AT&T with federal and local anti-drug officials, including DEA agents. It gives law enforcement officials access to "every call that passes through an AT&T switch -- not just those made by AT&T customers -- and includes calls dating back 26 years," according to the Times report. That's around 4 billion call records every day, each logged with information on the location of callers. The official government slideshow describing the program suggested it had been helpful in tracking drug dealers who frequently change phones, or use disposable "burner" phones.

People Are Trying to Sell Cinnamon Bark as an Ebola Cure

Marion Nestle reports that several supplement manufacturers are selling vitamins that promise to prevent or treat Ebola. The claims caught the attention of the FDA, which has issued warning letters to three of the manufacturers: Natural Solutions Foundation, Young Living, and DoTERRA International LLC. The agency lists specific claims it finds worrisome; for example, on a Young Living consultant's website, "Ebola Virus can not live in the presence of cinnamon bark."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Despite the WHO authorizing the use of unproven treatments to deal with the Ebola the reality is that only treatments from the giant pharmaceutical corporations are being allowed. The FDA, still looking at Ebola from the economic point of view, is coming down hard on anyone offering treatments from which the pharmaceutical corporations cannot make the profit.

We know the FDA is blocking use of even mention of nano silver products wherever they can, despite the fact that both Nigeria and Sierra Leone have told the US Government to shove their regulations (possibly in response to the growing awareness that the US Government may have triggered the Ebola outbreak in Africa with a botched vaccine trial) and are treating Ebola patients with nano-silver and reporting positive results.
That being said, it was observed during the 1918 flu pandemic (also triggered by a botched vaccine trial) that workers at a factory that processed cinnamon for bakeries did not come down with the flu. This triggered widespread use of cinnamon, usually mixed with milk, which did in fact lower the fever and reduce symptoms of those already infected with the flu. Most naturally occurring antibiotics are broad spectrum, which means they are effective against a wide variety of infections, whereas modern pharmaceutical antibiotics are designed to be effective against specific infectious agents and are usually useless against others.

So do your own research and make your own choices.

After all, are you willing to bet your life the government, media, and pharmaceutical corporations are telling you the truth?

FTDI admits to bricking innocent users' chips in silent update

Hardware hackers and security researchers are furious at chip maker FTDI for issuing a silent update that bricks cloned FTDI FT232 [USB to UART] chips.

The chip is extremely common on a wide variety of devices and there is no way of knowing at this time which devices have cloned chips -- and the tainted supply chain could hit anyone.

FTDI appears to have used a recent Windows update to deliver the driver update to brick all cloned FTDI FT232s.

FTDI's surprise new driver reprograms the USB PID to 0, killing the chips instantly.

The hardware hackers at Hack A Day first reported that a recent driver update deployed over Windows Update is bricking cloned versions of the very common FTDI FT232 [USB to UART] chip.

In response to increasing anger and criticism from security researchers on Twitter, FTDI admitted using the remote kill switch and is adamant that this move is necessary to fight counterfeiting.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh yes, let's punish the end user who may not even know his product has a counterfeit chip by killing his hardware!

Does FTDI not understand that the counterfeiters will go on selling their chips anyway not caring if they eventually fail? Look at the flood of fake 128G SD cards hitting the market. These are actually 8G chips reprogrammed to identify themselves as 128G to the computer. Every time a particular brand is identified as phony, the counterfeiters simply change their company name, change the packaging, and go right on selling their products, not caring that they will not actually work. FTDI's stunt will harm a lot of innocent end users and will not stop the counterfeiters. It won't even slow them down. Someone needs to be fired for this mistake!

Obama claims executive privilege over 15,000 Fast and Furious docs

The Obama administration is claiming executive privilege over more than 15,000 documents related to Operation Fast and Furious, including correspondence between Attorney General Eric Holder and his wife, according to records received Wednesday night by the watchdog group Judicial Watch.

Last month, a federal judge ordered the Justice Department to release to Judicial Watch the list of documents, known as a “Vaughn index,” that it is withholding from the public, calling its requests for further delays “unconvincing.”

The 1,307-page Vaughn index lists 15,662 documents related to Operation Fast and Furious that the Obama administration is asserting executive privilege over—the first time that full list and description of the records has been released.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Basically Obama just told Judicial Watch, the courts, and the American people to fuck off!

Media paying attention to poll showing public's distaste for privatization

Newspaper columnists and radio talk show hosts are paying attention to fresh polling data that shows just how uneasy Canadians are about the concept of privatization.

Last week, the National Union of Public and General Employees (NUPGE) publicized the results of the polling done in September in which:

70 per cent of respondents agreed that: “allowing a few people to profit from services meant for all of us weakens our country's principles and core values of caring and sharing."
82 per cent agreed that “when private companies get contracts to provide government programs, the public loses control over services people depend on.”

Obama Asserts Fast and Furious Executive Privilege Claim for Holder’s Wife

The document details the Attorney General Holder’s personal involvement in managing the Justice Department’s strategy on media and Congressional investigations into the Fast and Furious scandal. Notably, the document discloses that emails between Attorney General Holder and his wife Sharon Malone – as well as his mother – are being withheld under an extraordinary claim of executive privilege as well as a dubious claim of deliberative process privilege under the Freedom of Information Act. The “First Lady of the Justice Department” is a physician and not a government employee.

Federal judge tosses tea party suit seeking permanent protection from IRS targeting

Judge Reggie B. Walton also refused a request by True the Vote, a Texas-based group that tries to combat election fraud, to make Lois G. Lerner and other current and former IRS employees pay a penalty for having blocked the group’s tax-exempt status and made intrusive inquiries into the group’s activities.

CIA Apparently 'Impersonated' Senate Staffers To Gain Access To Documents On Shared Drives

According to sources familiar with the CIA inspector general report that details the alleged abuses by agency officials, CIA agents impersonated Senate staffers in order to gain access to Senate communications and drafts of the Intelligence Committee investigation. These sources requested anonymity because the details of the agency's inspector general report remain classified.

"If people knew the details of what they actually did to hack into the Senate computers to go search for the torture document, jaws would drop. It's straight out of a movie," said one Senate source familiar with the document.

Thousands With Degenerative Conditions Told They Could Be ‘Fit To Work In The Future’

More than a third of people with debilitating and incurable conditions and are too sick to work, such as Parkinson’s and multiple sclerosis, are being placed in the ‘Work Related Activity Group (WRAG) of ESA, even though their condition is certain to worsen over time.

Claimants placed within the WRAG receive less money than those in the higher ‘Support Group’, who are not required to prepare for work or attend Job Centre interviews, and face the threat of sanctions if they fail to comply with strict requirements. Some may have their ESA entitlement removed after only a year as the government attempts to “support people into work”.

UN Issues Statement on Human Rights Violations in Detroit

The conditions are so bad that two United Nations special rapporteurs were invited to Detroit by a number of community groups: the special rapporteur on human right to safe drinking water and sanitation, and the other one on adequate housing and standard of living without discrimination. They heard from residents, council members, the mayor, and congressmen. In their joint statement, they said that the human rights to safe drinking water, sanitation, and adequate housing both derive from the right to an adequate standard of living protected under Article 25 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

New York Fed’s Conference Evokes Thoughts of Violence Against Wall Street

“Since 2008, fines imposed on the nation’s largest banks have far exceeded $100 billion. The pattern of bad behavior did not end with the financial crisis, but continued despite the considerable public sector intervention that was necessary to stabilize the financial system. As a consequence, the financial industry has largely lost the public trust. To illustrate, a 2012 Harris poll found that 42 percent of people responded either ‘somewhat’ or ‘a lot’ to the statement that Wall Street ‘harms the country’; furthermore, 68 percent disagreed with the statement: ‘In general, people on Wall Street are as honest and moral as other people.’ ”

Further cementing that public distrust, the media was barred from attending Monday’s conference at the New York Fed. Press members who nonetheless reported on the event evoked a recurring theme of violent acts to deal with incorrigible actors.

“No Refusal” Blood Draw Checkpoint Planned For Ohio

A “no refusal” checkpoint where drivers will be forced to stop and potentially submit to having their blood taken on the side of the road by law enforcement authorities is planned for Clark County, Ohio tomorrow.

“Every car will be checked to ensure that drivers are not impaired. If there is sufficient probable cause to believe that a driver is operating a vehicle while impaired, law enforcement will seek a blood search warrant from a “neutral and detached magistrate,” reports ABC 22.

The time and location of the checkpoint will not be released until hours before it is set to begin.

Entire Court in California Had to Step Down – All Judges

Now, in California, some prosecutors have resigned because Eric Holder’s boys were fabricating evidence in order to confiscate property in the tens of millions of dollars. One former prosecutor Eric Overby stated: “It’s called the Department of Justice. It’s not called the Department of Revenue.” Overby has stated that in his entire career, “I’ve never seen anything like this. Never.” The entire court has had to step aside because all judges are tainted. Just amazing.

Central Banker Admits Central Bank Policy Leads To Wealth Inequality

It’s Not Just Spying – How The NSA Has Turned Into A Giant Profit Center For Corrupt Insiders

Last week, two very important stories came out; one from Reuters and the other from Buzzfeed. They both zero in on how current NSA employees are using their expertise and connections to make big money in the private sector while still working at the NSA. Let’s start with the Reuters story, which covers former NSA-head Keith Alexander’s business relationship with the NSA’s current Chief Technical Officer, Patrick Dowd.

Before we get into the meat of this story, I want to set the stage with a little background. In case you forgot, Keith Alexander launched his own cyber-security firm, IronNet Cybersecurity Inc., earlier this year.

Fed Up With DOJ Misconduct, Fraud and False Evidence – Federal Judge Takes Nuclear Option

In perhaps the most stunning documentation yet of abuses by Eric Holder’s Justice Department, two former Assistant United States Attorneys spoke to defense attorneys and revealed appalling deceit and corruption of justice. This latest litigation time bomb has exploded from multi-million dollar litigation originally brought by the Department of Justice against Sierra Pacific based on allegations that the lumber company and related defendants were responsible for a wildfire that destroyed 65,000 acres in California.

In what was dubbed the “Moonlight Fire” case, the tables are now turned. The defendants have discovered new evidence and filed a stunning motion. The new evidence and disclosures are being taken seriously by the Chief Judge of the Eastern District of California—as they should be. In a shocking action, Judge Morrison C. England Jr. ordered the recusal of every federal judge in the Eastern District of California.

Obama’s counterrevolution against the Founding Fathers

The French Revolution had its Napoleon Bonaparte and the 18th of Brumaire counterrevolution.

The American Revolution is witnessing a soft cover edition under President Obama, but without Napoleon’s “little whiff of grapeshot.”

Sermonizing on behalf of the president at Harvard Law School on Sept. 16, John Brennan, current Director of Central Intelligence (DCI) and then Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism, declared: “[O]ur highest priority is — and always will be — the safety and security of the American people. As President Obama has said, we have no greater responsibility as a government.”

But the president and DCI profoundly err. They have subordinated liberty to an effete quest for a risk-free existence, and inverted the nation’s philosophy and Constitution.

Edward Snowden Should Be Charged With Murder, Says Congressman Mike Rogers

Edward Snowden, the NSA whistleblower who revealed the extent of American and British surveillance programmes, should be charged with murder, according to a senior United States congressman.

Republican Mike Rogers, the chairman of the House of Representatives intelligence committee, told a meeting in the House of Commons in London on Tuesday evening that Snowden was a "traitor" who was now living in the "loving arms" of Russian spies.

"The [US] government has pressed charges on Mr Snowden," he said. "We are treating him, as I would argue, the traitor that he is." Rogers added: "And by the way, and this is important, I would charge him for murder."

Rogers also warned the gathering of British MPs and interested foreign policy professionals that British policy of restricting its strikes against Isis to Iraq was giving the Islamic militant group a "safe haven" in Syria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Congressman Rogers: you, and your British counterparts were thoroughly humiliated when Snowden did what he did.

And what Snowden did was to speak the truth; something to which you, and your colleagues in the security industrial complex, appear to be pathologically...allergic.

The further revelations of NSAgate, IRSgate, APgate, Americans understand that their lives are now under total surveillance, and every narrative which begins to suggest that we are not, needs to be put to absolute, scientific, and relentless scrutiny by We the People.

And I have to wonder, sir; by whom are you surveilled, that you would even begin to claim that Snowden is guilty of murder, when you cannot offer one shred of evidentiary proof that this is the case?!?

And in how many defense industry companies are you invested, that you would really like to see a return of the "cold war" between the US and Russia, looking at your Russia-bashing rhetoric here?!?

There should be a Constitutional Amendment, stating very clearly that every (alleged) Congressional representative must, upon winning office, put their finances in a blind trust, as must the US President.

Winning a seat as a national legislator should not be equivalent to winning the lottery, but unfortunately, that is the case right now.

US Government Moves to Dismiss Lawsuit Against ‘Suspicious Activity’ Program Which Keeps Files on Innocent People

The United States government has moved to dismiss a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) on behalf of five US citizens who say they were victims of a domestic surveillance program, which involves the collection of “suspicious activity reports” on individuals.

According to the ACLU’s filed complaint [PDF], a National Suspicious Activity Reporting Initiative (NSI) “encourages state and local law enforcement agencies as well as private actors to collect and report information that has a potential nexus to terrorism in the form of so-called ‘suspicious activity reports [SARs].’”

Fast forward to fall 2014, and the Wall Street Journal has a powerful article about how children in schools systems across the U.S. are being arrested or turned over to police custody for doing things that children have always done since the beginning of time. Things such as wearing too much perfume, sharing a classmates’ chicken nuggets, throwing an eraser or chewing gum.

The Italian would have no tax liability to Italy. That’s how it works for citizens of virtually all countries… except American citizens.

Like similar moral panics that have framed particular groups as the new internal enemy, young people both idealist and alienated now fit the focus of terror suspect, especially if they are Muslim and plan to travel overseas to visit relatives, learn Arabic, or just backpack around. Yet despite all the hyped-up chatter, no one has produced any evidence to show a threat exists to Canada and Canadians from the small number who have joined up in battling the Assad regime in Syria or worked with ISIS.

Buskers rally after subway arrest video inspires New Yorkers to jeer police

Fellow musicians are rallying around a subway performer whose arrest in a busy station was captured on video as straphangers jeered the officer. The New York police department says it’s looking into the arrest.

Andrew Kalleen, 30, was performing Friday at the G-train stop in Brooklyn’s hipster Williamsburg neighborhood when an officer told him he must leave the station because he needs a permit to play there. The neighborhood is home to trendy boutiques and cafes patronized by ultrahip residents and tourists who flock there to experience Brooklyn life.

“I’m not going to argue with you,” the officer says calmly.

Kalleen, also speaking evenly, refuses to leave and says he has a right to be there performing, then directs him to the section in the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s rules of conduct that say artistic performances and solicitation of donations are allowed.

What remains virtually unknown, however, is how a brazen deception by the George W. Bush administration and a key official within the IAEA created the false narrative of Iranian refusal to cooperate with the IAEA and was used to justify harsh international sanctions.

What they will also tell you is that this White House is so concerned about messaging that it will go to any length to shape it, and that includes pressuring reporters, threatening them with loss of access and, yes, even spying on them (and their parents). It also includes savaging critics.

We Spent $7.6 Billion To Crush The Afghan Opium Trade—And It's Doing Better Than Ever

Opium poppy cultivation in Afghanistan is at record levels, according to a new report from the Office of the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction. That's despite more than a decade of American efforts to knock out the Afghan drug trade—at a cost of roughly $7.6 billion.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In Bo Gritz "A Nation Betrayed", it was revealed that money sent to Vietnam to "fight drugs" was actually spent building a modern highway up to Kuhn Sa's opium plantation to allow large trucks to transport the opium to the airports where CIA's Air America then carried it on the first leg of its journey to the US. I suspect that what that $7 billion was actually spent on is not what you were told it was.

Population Reduction through Vaccine Poisons

Attitudes toward medical ailments and treatment vary widely, usually based upon the degree of trust in the type of health care practice that a patient believes to be the best healing method. The AMA is an advocacy association that promotes the validity of medical therapy heavily based upon manufactured designer drugs. The establishment corporatist scientists have a tendency to claim a corner on proof. However, they often expound on their accepted view using selective memory. Facts can stand in the way of implementing the master plan when the “so called” humanitarian benefits remain elusive or worse, detrimental.

Nationalize The Federal Reserve

It’s clear that the gold-hoarding, ISIS-funding, Ebola-creating international bankers are bent on destroying America. Their current flurry of wars and interventions is a desperate attempt to both stave off a deflationary depression and to shut down the giant spotlight increasingly being shown upon them.

At their core they are Nazis, so the black Obama provides the perfect fall guy. There is but one rabbit which Obama can pull out of the hat which will prevent both his and our demise.

He must nationalize the Federal Reserve. And he must do it now.

HHS-Funded Study: Obamacare Will Suffer ‘Death Spiral’ If Subsidies Fail

The Obama administration has funded a new study by top consulting firm RAND Health that startlingly finds that if taxpayer subsidies are eliminated, Obamacare exchanges will fall into a “death spiral.”

The study comes in the wake of a number of lawsuits which are challenging the Obama administration’s implementation of Obamacare subsidies. Three lawsuits have made it to U.S. Circuit Courts, just one step from the Supreme Court, arguing that the text of the Affordable Care Act allows premium subsidies for state-run exchanges only.

Israel is losing its friends

When Netanyahu warns about Iran’s nuclear threat, even those who worry about Tehran’s intentions, respond with a weary shrug

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel has been crying Iran's nuclear wolf since the 1980s, and it has never happened. Add to that the fact that Iran has not launched a war of aggression against another country in 200 years, and Israel's accusations have never been credible, especially as Israel's own nuclear perfidy becomes known. Netanyahu has made a caricature of himself with his cartoon bomb at the UN, and three gratuitous attacks on Gaza have forever destroyed Israel's PR image as perpetual victim.

"That was great. That was the most fun I had in my life."

"Another country that had a population problem asked us to work on this." (I'm pretty sure that was one of South Africa's keenest allies Israel that he's referring to.)

From the book by bio-weapons expert Jeanne Guillemin: "The project‘s growth years were from 1982 to 1987, when it developed a range of biological agents (such as those for anthrax, cholera, and the Marburg and Ebola viruses and for botulinum toxin)..."

Vote All You Want—The Secret Government Won’t Change

The voters who put Barack Obama in office expected some big changes. From the NSA’s warrantless wiretapping to Guantanamo Bay to the Patriot Act, candidate Obama was a defender of civil liberties and privacy, promising a dramatically different approach from his predecessor.

But six years into his administration, the Obama version of national security looks almost indistinguishable from the one he inherited. Guantanamo Bay remains open. The NSA has, if anything, become more aggressive in monitoring Americans. Drone strikes have escalated. Most recently it was reported that the same president who won a Nobel Prize in part for promoting nuclear disarmament is spending up to $1 trillion modernizing and revitalizing America’s nuclear weapons.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Very depressing to understand, but this is the reality of government in the United States these days.

Press TV reporter appears to be victim of CIA black op: Rodney Martin

“Mrs. Shim most likely died as a result of her tireless pursuit of truth which is suppressed by media in the West. Mrs. Shim appears to be the victim of a CIA black op, most likely with the cooperation of Turkey who just recently accused her of being a ‘spy’ after she exposed Turkey’s assistance of ISIL,” Martin said.

FLASHBACK 2012 - A CIA gambit in Pakistan threatens a global vaccination program

As an intelligence operation, it must have seemed like pure genius: Recruit a Pakistani doctor to collect blood samples that could identify Osama bin Laden’s family, under cover of an ongoing vaccination program. But as an ethical matter, it was something else.

The CIA’s vaccination gambit put at risk something very precious — the integrity of public health programs in Pakistan and around the globe. It also added to the dangers facing nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) in a world that’s increasingly hostile to U.S. aid organizations.

ACADEMIC FREEDOM Vs FREEDOM

I am going to use this space once again to talk about the despicable un-hiring of Steven Salaita at the University of Illinois (I wrote about the Salaita case and what I called The Incivility of Palestinians, last month as well).

I am going to do this because, despite the fact that the academic boycott of the University of Illinois continues apace (there is even, it seems, the rise of a progressive Jewish-identified contingentchampioning Salaita), facile comparisons of Salaita’s case and circumstances with those of various unsavory others are also proliferating.

These comparisons are so thick-headed, so tin-eared, so ham-fisted, that they nearly defy imagination.

Obamacare ‘bronze’ plan premiums expected to jump 14% in 2015

Obamacare “bronze” plan owners may be in for a shock next year. Investors predict the cheapest healthcare offering under the Affordable Care Act could jump nearly 14 percent in price.

In an analysis of expected rates for the biggest 15 cities in the nation, including Washington, D.C., Investor’s Business Daily reported Friday that the cost for the plan could increase by an average of 13.9 percent for 40-year-old non-smokers earning 225 percent of the poverty level.

Public Health Expert Explains How to Prevent a Panic About Ebola: Tell the Truth!

I categorically reject the idea that you can’t tell people you “don’t know” … because you’re afraid you’ll scare them.

There is a complete [scientific] literature on risk communications that says people are never frightened if you tell them you don’t know, but “this is what I’m doing to learn”. Or [if you tell them] “this is something, and it might be very scary.”

The literature shows – over and over again – there are 2 things that will turn them to be very concerned … if not scared.

One is if you tell them with certainty “A”, and then you tell them with certainty “B”, and then A and B don’t happen … or they happen in a way you didn’t tell them. Then they wonder about your credibility.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Which is exactly what is happening now. It is not the Ebola that has people scared but the obvious mismanagement by the government!

Police Raid on Okra Plants? 10 Totally Pointless SWAT Raid Nightmares

On October 6, a grand jury in Habersham County, Georgia decided that members of a SWAT team who maimed and disfigured a 19-month-old toddler during a botched no-knock drug raid should not face any criminal charges. It was yet another example of militarized, trigger-happy narcotics officers endangering the public with impunity, which has been the norm in the War on Drugs. SWAT teams, when used appropriately, can save lives: for example, an effective, well-trained SWAT team can actually reduce the number of injuries and fatalities in certain hostage situations. But with American police having become overly militarized in recent years, the use of SWAT teams in non-extreme circumstances has become much too common.

Idaho SWAT team storms community yard sale in front of customers, children

Minutes later, in front of numerous customers and children, armored police officers descended upon the community event, throwing a man to the ground, along with an innocent woman who happened to be standing next to him.

“All of a sudden the SWAT team came in and arrested him and they told me he was a really bad guy,” said Flo Martinez to WTVB. “I’m a single mom of four kids and it scared the heck out of us.”

Troy Wheeler — the “really bad guy” that required a public display of aggression in front of innocent bystanders and children — was taken into custody for parole violation and breaking prohibition laws. Besides a battery conviction 13 years ago, his record is unremarkable and all prohibition-related.

Rotherham scandal: MPs urge investigation into missing child sex abuse files

A full and urgent investigation into the disappearance of key child sex abuse files is needed to address public suspicion of a cover-up, the influential Commons home affairs select committee has said.

The MPs’ demand comes from their follow-up inquiry into the response of authorities in Rotherham during which they heard evidence that the files of a council researcher detailing the extent of suffering had been stolen in 2002.

The Commons home affairs committee’s report, published on Saturdaysays this was not the first case wherein there were allegations that files relating to child sex exploitation had disappeared.

What ‘Democracy’ Really Means in U.S. and New York Times Jargon: Latin America Edition

It is, of course, true that democratically elected leaders are capable of authoritarian measures. It is, for instance, democratically elected U.S. leaders who imprison people without charges for years, build secret domestic spying systems, and even assert the power to assassinate their own citizens without due process. Elections are no guarantee against tyranny. There are legitimate criticisms to be made of each of these leaders with regard to domestic measures and civic freedoms, as there is for virtually every government on the planet.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This country only observes human rights, freedom, and democracy.... in the absolute, post-Orwellian opposite of what these values are supposed to mean, both at home and abroad.

It doesn't matter, really, who gets elected to national office, because every single candidate has been co-opted by the huge financial rewards of those companies which fund election cycles.

What we have in the US right now is not a democratic republic, but horrific crony capitalism writ large, and all the attending misery it creates.

The Pauperization of Workers in the UK and America

Here is what happened: workers benefited from rising real incomes during the three quarters of deflation in 2009 – which probably was responsible for firing up moribund consumer spending. But it didn’t last long. In 2011 and 2012, a burst of inflation took it all away again.

It’s only during periods of low inflation or actual deflation that modern American workers get real wage increases. Turns out, the mix of slight inflation and slight deflation is good for workers!

But there is another huge group of people that has been taken to the cleaners: savers. These conservative investors don’t want to lose, in rigged financial markets, 30% or 40% or 50% of what little they have during the last 10 or 20 or 30 years of their lives. Unlike young folks, they have no way of ever re-earning their hard-earned money a second time, so to speak.

Too stupid to roast marshmallows

It seems the U.S. Forest Service recently published a 700-word guide on how to safely roast marshmallows. (The publication was released in time for Aug.30, which was officially, I kid you not, “National Roasted Marshmallow Day.” Your tax dollars at work.)

This comprehensive article suggests that a 10-foot buffer between children and a fire is a good rule of thumb. Roasting sticks should be at least 30 inches in length. (Do the math for how long a kid’s arm will have to be to roast marshmallows from 10 feet away with a 30-inch stick.)

Still No Charges 3 Months After Eric Garner's Chokehold Death

Chokeholds are dangerous and prohibited by the New York City Police Department. Yet on July 17, Officer Daniel Pantaleo wrapped his arm around the neck of Eric Garner, who had resisted arrest for selling untaxed cigarettes on Staten Island. In a viral video of the encounter, Garner can be heard repeatedly screaming, “I can’t breathe!” before his body goes still.

The medical examiner ruled the death a homicide, and “I can’t breathe!” became a rallying cry at a massive protest against police brutality in Tompkinsville, the neighborhood where Garner -- who’d been caught on multiple occasions selling cigarettes illegally -- was arrested for the last time.

Friday marks three months since the death of Garner, a 43-year-old father of six. For his family, it's another milestone in justice that has been delayed.

FBI director to citizens: Let us spy on you

The expanding options for communicating over the Internet and the increasing adoption of encryption technologies could leave law enforcement agents “in the dark” and unable to collect evidence against criminals, the Director of the FBI said in a speech on Thursday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am going to take it from the above that FBI Director James B. Comey is tacitly admitting that our series of NSA encryption challenges did in fact defeat the NSA cryptographers.

So, Comey is trying to revive an idea from 1995 and declare that any encryption system not authorized for use by the government (meaning not including a back door for them to use) is a "weapon" whose purpose must be assumed to be criminal, and therefore punishable. Better copy off those code snippets in my challenge while you still can!

The new attitude is "Use A Secret Decoder Ring: Go To JAIL!"



The government wants us to trust them that they are only going to spy on criminals, but we already know this is a lie. The FBI and other US Intelligence agencies have been caught stealing personal data for cronies of the President and their own personal profit. The Fourth Amendment says that the government cannot peek into your personal life absent an actual accusation of a crime and given the tsunami of evidence that the government is not complying with its Constitutional limits, We The People have every right to secure our business secrets, photos of our scantily clad partners, my Aunt Mary's Top Secret Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe, and everything else from a government that is itself the biggest criminal organization in the country.

CDC Fails Again. Are you Surprised? I Bet we Both aren't.

Well, the kiddies have now seen the man behind the curtain at the Great Father Puppet Show. The CDC, at the poker table gambling with human lives, have just showed their hand and guess what? They’ve been bluffing all along. They don’t hold so much as a pair of deuces. Are you surprised? I bet we both aren’t. I am referring to the fact that a second health care worker in Dallas has now tested positive for Ebola, after contact with Duncan, the original carrier. This after CDC engaged in all kinds of decidedly bold braggadocio about how they had this situation under control, they were going to stop Ebola in its tracks, and, yes, there really is a Santa Claus.

Teenage boy shot dead by Israeli troops in West Bank

A 13-year-old boy has been shot and killed by Israeli forces in a village near the occupied West Bank city of Ramallah.

Bahaa Badr was shot in the chest on Thursday evening during clashes between protesters and Israeli forces who entered Beit Liqya near the separation wall with Israel.

According to reports, soldiers opened fire after demonstrators threw stones and Molotov cocktails at three Israel army Jeeps that entered the village west of Ramallah.

It is still unclear whether Badr took part in the clashes, which the Israeli army described as an “illegal riot”.

Leaked TPP Chapter Exposes Sweet Deals for Big Pharma and US Bully Tactics

WikiLeaks on Thursday released a second updated version of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) Intellectual Property Rights chapter, charging that it will hinder affordable access to medicines globally, increase online surveillance, and impinge on civil liberties while benefiting Big Pharma and other corporate interests.

"Our first impression in reading the document is the extent to which the United States has sought hundreds of changes in intellectual property norms, some small and subtle, others blunt and aggressive, nearly of all of which favor big corporate right holders, and undermine the public’s freedom to use knowledge," declared James Love of Knowledge Ecology International.

The TPP is the world's largest economic trade agreement that will, if it goes into effect, encompass more than 40 percent of the world's GDP. The IP chapter covers topics from pharmaceuticals, patent registrations, and copyright issues to digital rights.

Did The Saudis Just Get A Tap On The Shoulder?

The US-Saudi "secret" plan that was supposed to crush Putin quickly turned sour when as we reported several days ago, one after another America's own shale plays, which recently entered a very sharp bear market, started appearing on various death watches (case in point today's MHR Second Lien refi which repriced from L+500 to L+750 in minutes).

As a result, one wonders: did Obama realize that Russian "costs" which as everyone knows by now include a Eurpoean triple-dip recession, could also very soon include an insolvent US shale industry, and thus may be just a little too much, and, one further wonders, if he is the one who just tapped Saudi Arabia on the shoulder?

'Origami' condoms, Michelle Obama gardening games and poop-throwing chimps: NIH spent millions on wacky projects but now complains cuts killed off Ebola vaccine research

The $30 billion U.S. National Institutes of Health blamed tightening federal budgets on Monday for its inability to produce an Ebola vaccine, but a review of its grant-making history in the last 10 years has turned up highly unusual research that redirected precious funds away from more conventional public health projects.

The projects included $2.4 million to develop 'origami' condoms designed with Japanese folding paper in mind, and $939,000 to find out that male fruit flies prefer to romance younger females because the girl-flies' hormone levels drop over time.
