Surveillance Court Rules That N.S.A. Can Resume Bulk Data Collection

The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court ruled late Monday that the National Security Agency may temporarily resume its once-secret program that systematically collects records of Americans’ domestic phone calls in bulk.

But the American Civil Liberties Union said Tuesday that it would ask the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, which had ruled that the surveillance program was illegal, to issue an injunction to halt the program, setting up a potential conflict between the two courts.

The program lapsed on June 1, when a law on which it was based, Section 215 of the USA Patriot Act, expired. Congress revived that provision on June 2 with a bill called the USA Freedom Act, which said the provision could not be used for bulk collection after six months.

Is the TPP Okay With Slavery? Really?

So the fast track plan to pass the Trans-Pacific Partnership has run into a new wrinkle after an amendment passed in the Senate debate: slavery. Yes, really, slavery: the Senate voted for an amendment that would make it more difficult for countries that engage in slavery to be in the TPP, and the Obama administration objected.

SURVEY OF 382 U.S. LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES SHOWS FAR GREATER CONCERN ABOUT ANTI-GOVERNMENT EXTREMISTS THAN ABOUT ISLAMIC TERRORISTS

Ask a cop what kind of extremist they’re most concerned about and the answer is likely to be those opposed to the government, not Muslim terrorists.

A survey of 382 law enforcement agencies from around the United States asked officers to list the main violent extremist threat their agency faces.

Anti-government extremists were listed more than any other by far: 73.8%. Al Qaeda-inspired extremists came in a distant second, at 39.3%.

“Law enforcement agencies in the United States consider anti-government violent extremists, not radicalized Muslims, to be the most severe threat of political violence that they face,” the survey’s authors, Charles Kurzman and David Schanzer, wrote in their report (pdf).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How odd; are we about to criminalize anger at the brain-dead policies which leave this country worse off than it was before?

If someone is angry at governmental policies, does absolutely no violence, and shares their views with others in a lucid,logical way, does that make them an "anti-government extremist"?!?

I am a vocal government critic, who is both a Christian and a pacifist, who would never use, nor advocate, violence, ever.

But I have to wonder here: how soon will peaceful, logical criticism of government cause me to get "lumped in" with anti-government extremists?!?

When does logic become criminal?!?

This is a very critical question we all need to ask ourselves, as Americans, before we collectively start sliding down a very slippery slope.

And we have been on a very slippery slope, judicially, since 9/11, and have almost regressed to "Code Napoleon" law standards, where someone is immediately considered guilty until proven innocent, which absolutely throws the concept of "innocent until proven guilty" squarely on its head.

Rather than fix the root causes of anger against government, it appears that anger at government, in and of itself, is about to be criminalized, and labeled, and thoroughly medicated.

South Shore libraries to observe Banned Books Week

Visitors to the Milton Public Library’s teen room and adult graphic novel sections will be greeted by a startling sight the next two weeks – Art Spiegelman’s “Maus,” “Batman” and other books wrapped in bright yellow caution tape.

The display is the centerpiece of the library’s observance of national “Banned Books Week,” which is sponsored annually by the American Library Association and 11 other groups.

South Shore patrons will see similar displays all next week, starting Sunday, at the Thomas Crane Library in Quincy, Thayer Library in Braintree, Scituate Public Library, Ventress Library in Marshfield and others. Some are already in place.

All the displays are aimed at calling attention to why popular and highly regarded books have drawn complaints from parents and groups over the years – and why it’s important to keep them on library shelves.

“It’s not the library’s place to ban books,” Milton teen librarian Amy Rosa said.

Ending the Ownership of Money

As is now common knowledge, some of the world’s most powerful countries are insolvent due to ever-increasing sovereign debt. At this point, the economies are being held together through only one factor: continued faith in the currency by the average citizen. As soon as that faith disappears, the economies will crash.

Not surprisingly, the leaders of these countries and their close associates (particularly the banks) are actively seeking means by which they can escape the effects of the crisis they have created and still retain some sort of control.

For some time, I’ve predicted that one way in which they will accomplish this will be the elimination of cash, that in order to prevent a run on the banks in which the average citizen simply removes his money from the system, such a removal would be made impossible by ending the existence of bank notes. It would be replaced with an electronic currency system, so that the only “cash” that exists is a credit in a bank account.

Greece Again Can Save The West — Paul Craig Roberts

Like Marathon, Thermopylae, Plateau and Mycale roughly 2,500 years ago, Western freedom again depends on Greece. Today Washington and its empire of European vassal states are playing the part of the Persian Empire, and belatedly the Greeks have formed a government, Syriza, that refuses to submit to the Washington Empire.

Few people understand that the fate of Western liberty, what remains of it, is at stake in the conflict, and, indeed, the fate of life on earth. Certainly the German government does not understand. Sigmar Gabriel, a German vice-chancellor, has declared the Greek government to be a threat to the European order. What he means by the “European order” is the right of the stronger countries to loot the weaker ones.

The “Greek crisis” is not about debt. Debt is the propaganda that the Empire is using to subdue sovereignty throughout the Western world.

FAKE HATE: Black Activist Admits Hanging Confederate Flag from Black Soldier Memorial

A Confederate flag was hung on a Boston memorial to black soldiers on Sunday night.
The Boston Globe reported:

A Confederate battle flag was attached Sunday night to a Boston memorial that commemorates one of the first all-black regiments to fight for the union during the Civil War, hanging there for over an hour before a woman removed it.

Melissa Carino, 37, of Lowell said she saw the flag hanging from the Robert Gould Shaw and Massachusetts 54th Regiment Memorial across the street from the State House at about 8 p.m. Carino said she left and returned to the location later, angered that it had not been removed.

Now here’s the rest of the story…

Activists Plan to Burn American Flags in New York City Ahead of Fourth of July

A group calling for the immediate disarmament of the New York Police Department plans to burn American flags in a Brooklyn park on Wednesday, just days before the Fourth of July holiday.

“Disarm NYPD” announced the “Burn the American Flags” event on Facebook, inviting individuals to join the organization at Fort Greene Park to “set fire to this symbol of oppression.”

Organizers said accused Charleston shooter Dylann Roof wasn’t an “isolated actor,” but a “product of a consistent pattern of state-sponsored terrorism and radicalized dehumanization in America.” The event originally was aimed at burning the Confederate flag, but later changed to focus on the stars and stripes.

“There will be no peace until we tear down this system of oppression,” the group wrote on Facebook. “It isn’t enough to take the flag down; we must put an end to white supremacy once and for all.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are several questions which come to mind on this, and the first is: who is paying for these flags to be burned?!?

And the second question is, should these protests go national, and get horrifically violent, who benefits?!?

I really have to very soberly think that the greatest benefactor for such actions would be the Federal Government itself, because a national curfew could be imposed, followed by the suspension of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, coupled with the invocation of martial law.

And this administration would dearly love to be in a position to do this.

Why?!? Because world financial conditions will impact the American economy horrifically, with it looking like Greece, Puerto Rico, and Ukraine defaulting, all at approximately the same time.

What we saw yesterday on the stock markets may well be a harbinger of things to come.

The US government is very keen to start wars with Russia and China, to prevent the upswing of the ruble and yuan against the dollar.

With no First Amendment protection available, we cannot protest against either these wars, nor the reintroduction of the draft (and legislation for that, which will draft both our young men and women, has been sitting in the House Armed Services Committee for at least the last two years, until the "Right emotional moment" comes, where the House and senate believe that the American people will sign off on it)

Please be smart about how you protest, and do not give this Administration the reasons it wants to invoke martial law.

Yes, I know that the Supreme Court made flag burning protected free speech; but you can still be charged with a misdemeanor.

Anyone who wants to protest this weekend, please do it peacefully.

And remember; the stinky kid advocating property destruction, or the hurting of anyone of your brothers and sisters who are also protesting with you, is most likely a government operative, hoping to inflame the angers which exist into becoming full on riot conditions.

16 Facts About The Tremendous Financial Devastation That We Are Seeing All Over The World

As we enter the second half of 2015, financial panic has gripped most of the globe. Stock prices are crashing in China, in Europe and in the United States. Greece is on the verge of a historic default, and now Puerto Rico and Ukraine are both threatening to default on their debts if they do not receive concessions from their creditors. Not since the financial crisis of 2008 has so much financial chaos been unleashed all at once. Could it be possible that the great financial crisis of 2015 has begun?

Things have been relatively quiet in the financial world for so long that many have been sucked into a false sense of security.

But the underlying imbalances were always there, and they have been getting worse over time.

I believe that we are heading into a global financial collapse that will make what happened in 2008 look like a Sunday picnic by the time it is all said and done.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To all our readers/listeners; I would never want to be characterized as "Mrs. Chicken Little of Oahu, 2015, but I can tell you this: something wicked this way comes.

Whether it is a major collapse of the US economy, or a world war, began by a US government, which will be engineered as a distraction from a collapse of the US economy, I do not know.

But as always, we advise prudence in favor of freaking out.

Make sure that you have no more funds in the bank than are absolutely needed to pay your bills.

Make sure to have extra storable food, potable water, and medications for your family, and your pets.

Create a bug-out plan, and figure out how much flexibility your children's schools have, if you are seeing a state of emergency coming, and feel you need to get your kids out of school quickly.

Have some amounts of silver in your possession; if the dollar craters completely, that will most likely become a medium of exchange, because it is solid.

Find people with whom you can barter skills and services, and develop a community of like-minded people with whom you would feel comfortable.

SO TELL ME AGAIN WHY THE CONFEDERATE FLAG IS THE SYMBOL OF BLACK OPPRESSION IN AMERICA!

This whole Confederate flag issue is an attack on the First Amendment itself, to trick Americans into accepting the idea that because some people see the Confederate flag as a symbol of oppression, that justifies taking it away from everyone, including those who see it as symbolizing something else, such as family history or the right to secede from tyrannical government.

And if you fall for it; if you go along with the idea that something offensive to a minority justifies banning it for all, it will not stop with the Confederate flag. Politicians will start to ban anything they can find a few people to claim they are offended by, and there are already too many people living in this nation whose entire sense of self-worth is built on always being offended by something!

We are poised on the same slippery slope that led another nation into disaster!

Phalanx of Philadelphia Cops Arrest and Assault Crying-Toddler-Holding Guy For Evading $2.25 Fare and Did We Mention He's Black?

Now that we've offered at least some legal protections to gay and sick people, maybe it's time to safeguard black people still being daily terrorized by blue people with a sick sense of entitlement. Case in point: Philadelphia's burly mob of both transit and street cops - tellingly, black and white - who set upon a black dad carrying his baby daughter, grabbing him by the throat, slamming him into a wall and arresting him after he allegedly failed to pay his $2.25 subway fare. When surreal video of the encounter surfaced and quickly went viral, it was first reported that Ellis Smith had failed to pay his daughter's fare, and outrage centered on the fact that kids under four are free so huh? Then it was reported police had approached Smith for evading his own fare, a "crime" targeted in a recent crackdown.

Washington man given less than 2 gallons of water while jailed 13 days over bad check — and now he’s dead

ashington man starved to death while jailed 13 days over a bad check.

An autopsy showed that Keaton Farris died April 7 of dehydration and malnutrition after nearly two weeks in the Island County Jail, reported Natives in America.

Relatives hired a detective to investigate his death, and they learned two months later that jail employees refused to offer medical treatment to Farris or provide medication for his bipolar disorder.

They also found the 25-year-old Farris was denied even the minimum amount of water needed for human survival after guards shut it off to prevent him from flooding his cell.

The investigation revealed Farris had been given just 185 ounces of water, or about a gallon and a half, while incarcerated – far below the 1,563 ounces recommended under National Institute of Health guidelines.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is what happens to mentally ill people in the US; rather than being places in a psychiatric hospital where he really belonged, he was thrown in jail, and died there.

Had he received proper treatment, he might have survived. But of course, public funds for psychiatric hospitals are nearly non-existent in this country; so people who desperately need psychiatric services are considered completely expendable by the local and federal authorities.

Mr. Farris was, obviously, one of those people.

Australia's New Law Would Strip Citizenship For Possessing A 'Thing' Connected With Terrorism, Or Whistleblowing

Things seem to be going from bad to worse in Australia. In April, it brought in mandatory data retention, and last week its own version of SOPA finally became law. Now the Australian government is working on another awful piece of legislation: a bill to revoke the citizenship of those holding dual nationality if they are "involved in terrorism." A column in The Sydney Morning Herald gives a few examples of what that dangerously elastic concept might mean in practice:

Citizenship would automatically be stripped from a person convicted of entering an area declared to be a no-go zone by the Australian government. This would occur even if the person has entered that area for innocent purposes, such as to do business, visit friends or undertake a religious pilgrimage. The same result would follow for a person convicted of damaging Commonwealth property or possessing a 'thing', such as a book or downloaded file from the Internet, that is in some way connected with terrorism.

GOV. BROWN HAS 12 DAYS TO SIGN CALIF. SCHOOL VACCINE BILL

California's contentious school vaccine bill is now on Governor Jerry Brown's desk. On Monday, the state senate passed the bill that would require vaccinations for every student.

At the heart of the debate is a personal belief exemption that, until now, allowed parents to not have their kids immunized.

Such was the decision by Mill Valley residents Alex Gatsis and Tim Lundeen, who worry that their son Jace might suffer a bad reaction based on an auto-immune condition.

"Do we move? Do we leave California, maybe?" Gatsis asked.

"I think the whole purpose of the bill is to increase the number of vaccines that are on the mandatory schedule, which is going to generate hundreds of millions of dollars. There is no public benefit to this bill but there is a benefit to Merck, and there is a benefit to the politicians who are getting campaign contributions from the pharmaceutical business," Lundee said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This bill, if signed, will witness the ushering in of an entire generation of young moms and dads who will either home school their children, rather than vaccinate, or leave the state.

If you are a California resident who has to make the tough decisions about vaccinating your kids, please do your due diligence.

But the worst offenders, in terms of vaccines leaving kids permanently damaged,seem to be the combination shots. Please do your research wisely, and remember; home schooled kids tend to do extraordinarily well on college entrance exams.

Why Israel Declared 18 Dairy Cows a National Security Risk

Within six months, the whole town had turned to the local dairy for its milk, dubbed “Intifada milk.” The self-made dairymen delivered it by night so Israeli soldiers wouldn’t see it. One day an Israeli soldier came to the farm, took photos of the cows, and told the Palestinians they weren’t allowed to have the cows and gave them 24 hours to shut it down. He said the cows were a threat to Israel’s national security. Amer Shomali thinks he knows why.

“For the Palestinians, it meant a step closer to being free, to be able to decide their future, to be independent. Basically that was what was the security threat for Israel. It’s not the cow itself. It’s what the cow represents: a step toward independence.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The goal for Israel was to keep the Palestinians dependent on Israeli dairies, for both economic and political gain. We see the same thing happening here in the US with the government forcing us to remain dependent on favored corporations, for economic and political gain.

We Are All Greeks! Europe Only Has a Future With the New Silk Road

It's not Greece which has failed, but rather Chancellor Merkel, Finance Minister Schäuble, the EU Commission, the European Central Bank, and the IMF. Why should the Greek government stick with the austerity measures demanded by the EU, which have already reduced the Greek economy by a third, lowered the birth rate, raised the death rate, and increased youth unemployment to 65%? A policy that even the IMF had to admit was completely incompetent, and that the UN expert on debt and human rights condemned as a clear violation of human rights? Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras's decision not to capitulate to the "shock and awe" method of the Eurogroup's Shylocks is not only correct, but offers the chance for all of Europe to break with the insanity of the casino economy, which only serves the interests of the banks and speculators—provided however, that Germany and other countries find the courage to mobilize Europe's moral and intellectual strengths.

Former Treasury Official: The West Is Collapsing!

Everything in this country is becoming Third World – nothing functions anymore. – Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, Shadow of Truth, in reference to the completely rigged financial markets and failed democracy in the United States

Based on the reaction overnight by the stock market futures to the EU/Greek situation – the S&P 500 futures are down 25 pts/1.2% – I would hazard the opinion that the zombies on CNBC were slighly off-base when they asserted last week that a Greek default was already “priced into the market.”

This idiocy displayed on CNBC is emblematic of the extreme degree to which propaganda has infected our media. But it also highlights the degree to which the American public has willingly turned a blind eye to the Orwellian fog that has completely enveloped our system.

Oh, The Lies We Are Fed

What is happening is a convergence of events unlike the world has ever seen. The President’s Working Group on Financial Markets, also known as the Plunge Protection Team, has kept the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the S&P 500 on a continually higher moving plane for over five years. If you just look at a chart for either of these two indices you will see an approximate 30 degree angle moving from left to right. This is unnatural; this is unsustainable.

Truth is a Crime Against The State

The Western presstitutes have succeeded in creating a false reality for insouciant Americans and also for much of the European Union population.

A sizable percentage of these insouciant peoples believe that Russia invaded Ukraine and that Russia is threatening to invade the Baltic States and Poland. This belief exists despite all intelligence of all Western governments reporting that there is no sign of any Russian forces that would be required for invasion.

The “Russian invasion,” like “Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction and al Qaeda connections,” like “Assad of Syria’s use of chemical weapons against his own people,” like “Iranian nukes,” never existed but nevertheless became the reality in the Western media. The insouciant Western peoples believe in non-existent occurrences.

In other words, just to state the obvious noncontroversial fact, the Western “news” media is a propaganda ministry from which no truth emerges.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The "Whoreporate news networks", in print, or electronically, only give you the narrative the US government wants you to hear or see, which is why you are many times shielded so carefully from the stark realities creating public policy about which you need to know, and understand.

Unfortunately, at this point in my life, the country of which I am most deeply frightened, in terms of making some sort of ham-fistedly, pig-headedly wrong policies which will impact Americans badly (either by declaring a new war, against a truly non-belligerent country which is no threat to us), or embracing fiscal policies which will lead to a smash and burn of the US economy's small businesses, is my own government.

‘Hi, I’m Uncle Sam and I’m a War-oholic’

War on drugs. War on poverty. War in Afghanistan. War in Iraq. War on terror. The biggest mistake in American policy, foreign and domestic, is looking at everything as war. When a war mentality takes over, it chooses the weapons and tactics for you. It limits the terms of debate before you even begin. It answers questions before they’re even asked.

When you define something as war, it dictates the use of the military (or militarized police forces, prisons, and other forms of coercion) as the primary instruments of policy. Violence becomes the means of decision, total victory the goal. Anyone who suggests otherwise is labeled a dreamer, an appeaser, or even a traitor.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ever noticed that when the US declares war on ANYTHING (poverty, drugs, terror, etc.), the problem gets worse rather than better?!?

And the government of the US has a severe problem on its hands; after the lies about Saddam's Weapons, the lies used to trick us into invading and occupying Afghanistan, and the general state of lying about the economy, the American government has zero credibility with the American people.

We can no longer believe anything this government says, and have become (peacefully and logically) vocal about that.

About the only thing the US government has now is to engineer a massive false flag attack, and use it as the excuse to suspend the Constitution and Bill of Rights and declare martial law.

White supremacists sign up for military to train for race war — with little pushback from Pentagon

After the horrific massacre at Charleston’s historic black church, Americans are slowly realizing the threat posed by white supremacist and neo-Nazi movements. But few know that their presence has grown within one of the most powerful institutions in America: the US military.

According to the FBI, there are hundreds of white supremacists in the US army or in the veteran community. Some analysts even estimate the number is in the thousands. In America, 203 white supremacist “extremist cases” investigated by the Bureau from 2001 to 2008 involved veterans. The problem hasn’t gone away. Neo-Nazi veteran Wade Michael Page attacked six worshippers at the Sikh Temple in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, in 2012.

I spent a number of years investigating how neo-Nazis and white supremacists had infiltrated the US military, with very little push back from the Pentagon, which was desperate to keep the supply of troops flowing for the occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is pure codswallop to make Americans feel very afraid...very afraid indeed; to the point of doing everything their government tells them to, unthinkingly and unquestioningly.

If, in fact, this person actually did any research whatsoever, where are the numbers, please?!?

Notice that there is no hard evidence to back up anything this person alleges in this article.

IF this is not "research", then it is pure, grade-A bovine excrement propaganda, engineered to scare Americans.

And please remember; just as is the case with so many other mass casualty shooters in the US, Dylann Roof, the accused here, was on heavy psychiatric medications, which have a known history of causing homicidal or suicidal thoughts.

Please see the article here:

http://www.wnd.com/2015/06/big-list-of-drug-induced-killers/

Of course, demanding that pharmaceutical companies remove these dangerous substances from their product list would just cut into their bottom line too greatly, so that never happens. And in MY world, any drug company executive who allows such a drug to be sold, knowing its high risk, should be tried, convicted and jailed for a very long, and not in a Club Fed. But: I digress.

It has appeared to both Mike and me that someone in this country wants to see race hatred leading to some kind of a race war, and I have to pull back a bit, and ask "cui bono"?!? Who benefits?!?

Well, you have an Administration on the ropes in Washington, with its star player for the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton, tanking on potential charges of corruption, gross mismanagement of the State Department, and outright lying to Congress on Benghazi, you start to feel cornered. And cornered politicians are both desperate and dangerous.

Except for the money junkies, the economy is in a mess; just ask anyone whose job was recently offshored/outsourced.

The benefit for such an administration from a national series of race riots would be to give Obama the excuse to suspend the Constitution and Bill of Law, and invoke martial law, and perhaps postpone the next election...indefinitely.

Nothing could be said about the US business-shredding Atlantic or Pacific trade deals, without imprisonment, fines, or both.

Nothing could be said about upcoming potential wars with Iran, China, and Russia.

And nothing could be said about Charlie Rangel's legislation, still sitting in the Armed Services Committee, to reinstate the draft, and draft our young women, as well as our young men.

I am noticing that on the feed from Faux News, we are being "prepped" for some kind of horrific terror incident to happen over this weekend, either domestically, or against American interests.

This could well be another "justification" for President Obama's gleeful suspension of the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

Could this be YOU? Everyday Americans, including trained professionals and bosses, reveal how easily they fell into masses of debt - and have been left with no escape

They are Americans from all walks of life and every corner of the country - but are united in debt.

The people pictured in the portraits below have all laid bare their personal finances - revealing the sometimes-crippling amounts of money they owe.

One business owner borrowed $250,000 to fund a laundromat, and is now struggling to shift it - while others have been struck by illness, fraud and what they admit is 'frivolous spending'.

Others owe more modest amounts - often from college fees and credit cards - but have varying levels of optimism about how they will ever pay it back.

All are featured in The Debt Project, a series of photographs by artist Brittany Powell, aiming to investigate how people come to borrow and owe such life-changing amounts of money. Each is accompanied by a hand-written note.

TPP Trade Agreement Sleight of Hand: It Was Soooo Easy to Distract The American People With A Confederate Flag Flap and then Sell Us Into Slavery Again!

while America was distracted by a contrived, pre-planned Confederate flag distraction, the U.S. Congress forfeited the entire American economic future by quietly passing so-called “fast-track authority” which will allow President Obama to approve the TPP “free trade” agreement.

The TPP, as you may have heard, outright surrenders U.S. sovereignty to multinational corporations, handing them total global monopolies over labor practices, immigration, Big Pharma drug pricing, GMO food labeling, criminalization of garden seeds and much more. In all, the TPP hands over control of 80% of the U.S. economy to global monopolists, and the TPP is set up to enable those corporations to engage in virtually unlimited toxic chemical pollution, medical monopolization, the gutting of labor safety laws and much more.

New NSA whistleblower suspected behind French president surveillance leak

American and European security agencies are reportedly investigating a possible new whistleblower behind the WikiLeaks publication that exposed alleged NSA spying on top French officials, including three presidents.

The website on Tuesday released what appear to be classified NSA documents alleging the US agency spied on three successive French presidents: Jacques Chirac, Nicolas Sarkozy and incumbent François Hollande.

Responding to the report, Hollande called such activities unacceptable, while the French justice minister said WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden could be offered symbolic asylum in the country. US President Barack Obama assured his French counterpart the US hadn’t spied on him.

'Nein Danke' - smaller German firms see U.S. trade deal as threat

Martina Roemmelt-Fella, who owns a small, family-run turbine manufacturer in Bavaria, should be a cheerleader for a trade deal between Europe and the United States that promises to ease the flow of goods and services across the Atlantic.

But instead she fears the Trans Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) being hammered out between Brussels and Washington will give too much power to big multinationals at the expense of small companies like hers.

"The proposals are being negotiated behind closed doors with the help of 50 or 60 big corporates," said Roemmelt-Fella, whose firm is one of the thousands of small and medium-sized companies known as the 'Mittelstand' that account for 89 percent of Germany's exporters and form the backbone of the economy.

End of days for trolls

Maybe some of the columns in today's paper will make you a little angry. Maybe you'll just harrumph and turn the page. Maybe you'll slam your teacup down and get up for a brisk walk around the couch. But, if your preferred method of releasing frustration is to take it out on us online, you better fill your boots.

Online trolling is about to become illegal.

For the benefit of the less-tech savvy folk, trolling is defined by the Urban Dictionary as "being a prick on the internet because you can".

But good news. Parliament is days away from putting a ban on this online intimidation. So, to draw attention to the line and the sand and the drawing of said line in the sand, a few MPs this week read out to a camera some choice "mean tweets" they'd received.

Get-to-bed texts make for daycare dreams

Trials have proved so successful there are plans to extend it throughout the country.

Ministry of Education Early Learning Taskforce project manager Jilly Tyler said the initiative had boosted early education enrolments in Weymouth where it had been running for the past year.

"Since March 2014 enrolments across the seven centres have increased from an average of 70 per cent to 99 per cent. One centre doubled its attendance," she said.

In Case You Are Still Confused About Who Is In Charge

The spectacle is astonishing. The European Central Bank, the EMU bail-out fund, and the International Monetary Fund, among others, are lashing out in fury against an elected government that refuses to do what it is told.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What is essential for everyone to understand is that banking is not a science. It is a religion with a bunch of made-up rules to benefit the clergy, meaning the bankers. It only works because we have all been brainwashed into believing that banking is as sacrosanct as any other church, and those ink and paper tickets represent something real.

Once human-kind realizes that banking is a manufactured fantasy world designed to exploit humans as slaves (as are the other religions), we take an important step towards freedom.

The Delphi Declaration - On Greece and Europe

Many readers of the European and American press must be confused about what actually is happening in the negotiations between Greece (Alexis Tsipras and Yannis Varoufakis). The European Troika (the IMF, European Central Bank and European Council now object to the name and want to be called simply “the Institutions”) have stepped up their demands on Syriza. What is called “negotiation” is in reality a demand for total surrender. The Troika’s demand is to force Syriza to go back on the campaign promises that it made to voters who replaced the old right-wing Pasok (“socialist”) and Conservative New Democracy coalition, or else simply apply the austerity program to which that coalition had agreed:cutbacks in pensions, deeper austerity, more privatization selloffs, and a tax shift off business onto labor. In short, economic suicide.

Whistleblowers could have citizenship revoked under proposed laws

Whistleblowers with dual citizenship who speak out on Australia’s national security – including those involved in allegations that Timor-Leste’s cabinet room was bugged – could face having their citizenship revoked under proposed laws.

A bill introduced to the federal parliament by the immigration minister, Peter Dutton, on Wednesday enhances the power of the immigration minister to revoke or initiate a renunciation of citizenship for conduct deemed to relate to certain terrorism offences. The new bill seeks to strip only dual nationals of their citizenship.

The proposed section 35A of the bill also outlines that citizenship will be lost automatically for Australians who are convicted of particular offences.

While some of those offences are related to terrorism, they also include commonwealth property offences. Legal experts have warned the government has overreached in applying the revocation powers to these kind of offences.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to the Abbott government: please, don't go there.

This is such a ham-fistedly, pig-headedly, paranoicially draconian piece of legislation that I hardly know where to begin.

But of the following, I am reasonably certain; this legislation, if passed, will have an utterly chilling effect on free speech in your country, and could, as an ultimate result, lead to a "brain drain" of Australia's best and brightest to a degree which Australia has never experienced before in its history.

The number of very sharp Australian citizens who will start to renounce their Australian citizenship, and look for less fascistic places to work and live, will leave you gobsmacked.

When is Free Speech Unfree? When it involves Australia's Abbott Government

Let’s get a few things straight. Australia, thin-lipped conformist society that it is, possesses minimal freedoms on that marked concept of liberal democracy called freedom of speech. For those who laud the Racial Discrimination Act, free speech is more than a racial matter. For those who think there is some implied right to communicate on political matters, free speech is more than politics. At its core is the value, not of tolerance, but tolerating intolerance. At best, Australian free speech is an bite size entrée dressed up as a weighty main meal.

$200 Million Went to House Members to Pass Fast Track – Here's Who Took the Cash

TPA passed with a mere 219-211 vote with only 218 needed to pass. The real shocker comes from the amount of money each Representative received for a yes vote. In total, $197,869,145 was given to Representatives for a yes vote where as $23,065,231 was given in opposition.

John Boehner (R-OH) received $5.3 million for a "yea" vote and was the highest paid legislator.

Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) received $2.4 million for his "yea" vote.

Paul Ryan (R-WI) received $2.4 million for a "yea" vote and came in at the third highest paid legislator.

Pat Tiberi (R-OH) follows Paul Ryan, coming in the fourth spot having received $1.6 million for his "yea" vote.

The fifth highest paid legislator is somewhat of a "hero" in comparison to others. Representative Steny Hoyer (D-MD) received $1.6 million for a yes vote and only $282,710 for a no vote. Despite his high contribution from those in favor of TPA, he still voted a solid nay.

GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL ADMITS DELETING TEXT MESSAGES AFTER EX-IM BANK FOIA REQUEST

In today's consequence-less world - where only the poor are punished - news that a top official at a controversial U.S. export finance agency deleted text messages sent within days of the 2014 midterm elections after a watchdog group filed an open records request for the messages, will come as no surprise whatsoever. The 'excuse' given by Ex-Im Bank's chief of staff Scott Schloegel - because as we saw yesterday, there is no accountability - he "deleted, by mistake, the messages on my phone for the period in question." Most transparent administration ever...

With funding for the Ex-Im Bank is set to expire at the end of the month, and Congressional Republicans indicating that that they will allow it to do so, effectively shutting down the agency, the controversial crony capitalism creating agency will continue to make headlines. But as Free Beacon reports, the details may never actually come out as to just what this group did...

Washington Cathedral dean on Confederate flags: ‘It is time to take those windows out’

The dean of Washington National Cathedral has called for two stained-glass windows featuring Confederate flags to be taken down from the Gothic edifice, in yet another instance of institutions reconsidering countless tributes to the Southern cause.

Why Banks Rob Depositors: “Because That’s Where the Money Is”

With the formation of groups like the Orwellian “Better Than Cash Alliance,” plans are underway to eliminate cash altogether and leave the public with little choice but to keep all their money in a digital account. While using only electronic money may seem to be more "efficient," it makes it possible for authorities to track all of your financial dealings AND even allow banks to impose a Negative Interest Rate Policy (NIRP) upon you.

Without measures to prevent block them, account holders with cash balances might choose to withdraw and hoard paper currency. That would be the simplest way to escape negative interest rates.

But with funds trapped inside of bank accounts, bankers could simply deduct the negative rate charge from each customer’s balance. (Question: Would not such "digital cash balance robbery" be just a modernized version of what Willie Sutton was doing back in the day?)

Lancashire councillors prevented from blocking proposals for UK's first fracking site, says council member

County councillors had been due to decide whether or not to approve the UK’s first fracking site, near Preston, on 24 June. However, after adjourning the meeting several times, they decided to postpone the final decision until 29 June to allow them more time to process “secret” legal advice they had been given earlier in the day.

According to one of the those present, Councillor Paul Hayhurst, the advice essentially said they had no legal grounds for blocking the application and if they did so they could expect a costly legal battle with the applicant – the gas company Cuadrilla – which they would probably lose. As a result, he believes the councillors went from a position where they were ready to block the development to one where they were narrowly in favour.

If you take an inbound flight from overseas, and a suspected terrorist or supporter is flagged by automated name-check systems as being on the same flight—even if (and particularly if) that someone was denied boarding because they were on some no-fly list—the government regards you as connected with that terrorist, and runs a check on you and everyone else on the plane.

An Illustrated Guide to Civil Asset Forfeiture

This cheerfully drawn comic from the Daily Signal does an excellent job highlighting the insanity of civil asset forfeiture. It begins with a quintessentially American premise: a young person setting out on his own, all wordly possessions in hand, to start a new life as an adult. Far be it from me to spoil the rest:

What flag is the real target?

I’ve begun to suspect the targeting of Confederate imagery is part of a set up for something bigger, that Confederate flag and vulnerable memorials are being exploited to create a sense of validity for the need to purge “racist” symbols, and when successful, then the the trap gets sprung. Targeting of “racist” symbols will be expanded.

How the Feds Asked Me to Rat Out Commenters

Is there anything more likely to make you s**t your pants out of a mix of fear and anger than getting a federal subpoena out of the blue? -- Well, yes, there is: getting a gag order that prohibits you from speaking publicly about that subpoena and even the gag order itself.
