‘Interest on debt grows without rain’ – Yiddish proverb

This proverb explains most of what goes on in policy circles these days. We are now watching Extend-and-Pretend, Episode VI: Promises for improvement amid ever growing debt levels.

In brief, we’re still working with the same dog-eared script we were introduced to all of five years ago, when markets had stabilised in the wake of the financial crisis: maintain sufficiently low interest rates to service the debt burden.

Israeli Reservists “Operate” In US Colleges

Tel Aviv knows it can count on the ongoing financial, political and military support from the United States, but wants to get US campuses to topple any move that aims at divesting from Israeli and international companies that invest and benefit from the illegitimate Israeli occupation and its settlements.

Many reserve soldiers, especially those who graduated from American Universities, have been asked to “go back to school” in order to operate on preventing any move that calls for boycott, divestment and sanctions, and to try to encourage students’ support to Israel.

South Australian Judge Wants Total Gun Ban

SOUTH Australia needs a blanket ban on gun ownership in metropolitan areas to save lives and improve public safety, a respected senior SA judge has declared.

In a move that will ignite debate on gun laws, Supreme Court Justice Michael David said the issue of “gun availability’’ had been a recurring theme in a significant number of cases he had presided over during his 18 years on the District and Supreme Court benches.

He believes removing them from the community would prevent a significant number of domestic shootings.

“My view is I think our guns laws are pretty tight, they are not too bad. But my view on guns is not confined to that,’’ he said.

“In my view, and it is a fairly utopian view, I can’t see why anyone in this city should own a gun. I think a gun with a licence is just as dangerous as a gun without a licence.

Ciaran McCleave: CCTV operator jailed for voyeurism

A CCTV operator who was convicted of spying on a woman in north Belfast with a police camera has been jailed for a total of eight months.

Ciaran McCleave, 51, of Collinward Gardens, Newtownabbey, was convicted of voyeurism and misconduct in a public office at Antrim Road police station.

The court heard, he had directed a camera at a woman's apartment for 79 minutes over a 26-day period.

A judge said he had spied on the woman for his own "sexual gratification".

On one occasion, the woman was viewed in her underwear after coming out of the shower. The camera he used was supposed to monitor a north Belfast interface.

UK to allow fracking drilling under people's land without their consent

The UK plans to allow fracking companies to drill under people's land without their agreement, despite public opposition.

Vaccine wars: the censoring of Rob Schneider

Yesterday, I reported on State Farm dropping Rob Schneider from their TV ads because he’s alerted people to vaccine dangers.

Because he has a view about vaccines that departs from the norm.

“Punch a hole in consensus reality and you can’t be a spokesman for our products.”

“Cause a ripple among the sleeping populace and you’re out.”

What’s next?

Well, I’ll tell you what could be next, based on the fact that the Internet runs via an interlocking system of commercial companies.

Some companies that facilitate emails to large lists, and website hosts, to say nothing of Facebook, which is already censoring information, could decide, under pressure, or voluntarily, to close down “controversial data.”

Standard & Poor’s Warns on Germany as Anti-Euro Political Party Soars in Popularity

German parliamentary elections are coming up on Sept. 22, and Chancellor Angela Merkel has a problem on her hands. A euro-skeptical political party known as AfD is rising in the polls and could deny her Christian Democratic Union and its coalition partners the majority they need to continue governing.

AfD, or Alternative for Germany, currently holds no seats in the Bundestag, and until recently it barely registered in public-opinion polls. But a survey released on Sept. 4 by the Forsa polling group showed it with 4 per cent support—just shy of the 5 per cent needed to win Bundestag representation.Peter Matuschek, Forsa’s chief political analyst, says the poll may have underestimated the party’s strength. Many supporters, he told Spiegel, “are too embarrassed to admit that they are planning to vote for the AfD,” which wants Greece, Spain, and other crisis-hit countries to leave the euro zone, and possibly break up the existing monetary union itself.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No problem. I'll bet the bastards who rigged Scotland's referendum to keep it slaved to the Bank of England are already headed to Berlin to repeat the favor for the ECB!

Now there is a precedent…The IMF has said loot the bank accounts. The EU has said loot the bank accounts.
So you can be sure that other countries, when the problems come, are going to say… let’s do it too.

Retired Cop and Educator Threatened for Questioning Sandy Hook Investigation

The correspondence below was sent by Wolfgang Halbig to Connecticut State Police Lieutenant J. Paul Vance and Newtown Police Chief Michael Kehoe on January 22, 2014. A retired Florida State Trooper, US Customs Inspector, school administrator, security consultant and entrepreneur, Mr. Halbig has independently researched the Sandy Hook Massacre for over one year.

Understanding what procedures are common during such an event, he attempted with to consult state and federal law enforcement authorities in charge of the investigation only to be rebuffed. His numerous public records requests with Connecticut officials to obtain materials related to the inquiry have similarly been met with silence. Just prior to the Christmas 2013 holiday Halbig explains how he was threatened by Connecticut State Police via the Lake County Florida Sheriff’s Deputies with arrest on felony charges of harassment if he continued to investigate the event.

This is the advice of George Brown, a captain of the Oklahoma State Police, shared during an interview with a local NBC News affiliate in the wake of revelations that three Oklahoma cops (see here) have been arrested for sexually assaulting women. Asked how to avoid being raped by a cop, Captain Brown urged potential victims to “…follow the law in the first place, so you don’t get pulled over.”

Will Russia and China Hold Their Fire Until War Is the Only Alternative? — Paul Craig Roberts

Obama’s September 24 speech at the UN is the most absurd thing I have heard in my entire life. It is absolutely amazing that the president of the United States would stand before the entire world and tell what everyone knows are blatant lies while simultaneously demonstrating Washington’s double standards and belief that Washington alone, because the US is exceptional and indispensable, has the right to violate all law.

It is even more amazing that every person present did not get up and walk out of the assembly.

The diplomats of the world actually sat there and listened to blatant lies from the world’s worst terrorist. They even clapped their approval.

Federal Court Denies DOJ Motion for Delay, Orders Release of Fast and Furious Documents List to Judicial Watch by October 22

Judicial Watch announced today that on September 23, 2014, the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ruled that by October 22, the Department of Justice (DOJ) must submit a “Vaughn index” listing Fast and Furious materials Judicial Watch sought in its June 2012 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request and subsequent September 2012 FOIA lawsuit (Judicial Watch v. Department of Justice (No. 1:12-cv-01510)). A Vaughn index must: (1) identify each document withheld; (2) state the statutory exemption claimed; and (3) explain how disclosure would damage the interests protected by the claimed exemption.

Obamacare Website Costs Top $2 Billion, Almost Triple Government Estimates

What's the opposite of government efficiency? In a double-take-instigating headline, the federal government’s Obamacare enrollment system has cost about $2.1 billion so far, according to a Bloomberg Government analysis of contracts related to the project. BGOV’s analysis shows that costs for both healthcare.gov and the broader reform effort are far greater than anything publicly discussed. However, that pales into insignificance when considering health reform has cost American taxpayers $73 billion in the last four years... and counting.

Cop Asks Man For License, Shoots Him When He Goes to Get It

The video showing a shooting involving a former South Carolina state trooper and an unarmed man has been released to the public.

The video was taken from the dash camera installed inside 31-year-old Sean Groubert’s vehicle during an encounter in which Groubert shot 35-year-old Levar Jones on September 4th. The incident took place at a Circle K gas station on Broad River Road in Columbia.

Groubert was charged Wednesday with assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature in connection with the incident. Bond was set at $75,000.

In the video, Jones can be seen getting out of his car when Groubert pulled up and asked for his license. Jones reached in his car for his license and Groubert immediately shot at Jones several times.

FBI Says No One Killed at Sandy Hook

Recently released FBI crime statistics curiously appear to show that no murders occurred in Newtown, Connecticut, in 2012, despite reports that numerous schoolchildren and faculty members were slaughtered during a shooting rampage in December of that year.

PR Firm Pulls ‘Emma Watson Naked Pics’ False Flag to Push For Internet Censorship

A PR firm has admitted to carrying out an online false flag against the 4chan forum in which it blamed the website for a threat to release naked pictures of actress Emma Watson as part of an appeal to President Barack Obama to censor the Internet.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Anyone foolish enough to take nude pictures and put them on the web is just asking for trouble, and the reality is that more than a few stars intentionally plant nude pictures of themselves where they will be "discovered" as part of the campaign to increase their fame and "bankability." Setting that aside, this whole episode reminds us that the government and corporate media persist in trying to find ways to shut down the open and free internet and turn it into just another government and corporate controlled content and propaganda delivery system. Public Relations firms are paid vast amounts of money to engage in activities which for normal civilians would be punishable as crimes.

Where Is Venezuela’s 366 Tonnes Of Gold?

Is any of the country’s gold encumbered, loaned or leased to Goldman Sachs or other banks?

* Bank of America economist on visit to Venezuelan central bank last week was allowed to view the bank’s gold vault and the gold repatriated by Former President Hugo Chavez

* Is there a possibility of this given the Venezuelan economy’s weak position?

* An arbitration court of the World Bank ruled that Venezuela needs to immediately repay $740 million to US mining company ‘Gold Reserve’.

* Repayment is connected to Venezuela having terminated Gold Reserve’s gold and copper mining project in 2009 as part of Chavez’s nationalisation of energy and mining projects

* This ruling could set a precedent for other companies to seek compensation from Venezuelan government during a time in which Venezuelan economy is weak and heavily indebted

United Nations to Propose Global Lead Ammo Ban

A United Nations agency is proposing a ban on lead ammunition worldwide, which would serve as backdoor gun control by making ammo prohibitively expensive.

The United Nations Convention on Migratory Species, operating under the U.N. Environment Programme, is meeting in Quito, Ecuador on Nov. 4-9 to discuss and act on the lead ban recommended by a scientific council.

Reference material for the conference suggests that “voluntary approaches to restricting use of lead ammunition” do not work on a national level and for a proposed ban to work, a “range of societal issues” would need to be addressed, including “philosophical issues regarding gun rights and increased government oversight of shooting.”

In Colorado, a Student Counterprotest to an Anti-Protest Curriculum

A new conservative school board majority here in the Denver suburbs recently proposed a curriculum-review committee to promote patriotism, respect for authority and free enterprise and to guard against educational materials that “encourage or condone civil disorder.” In response, hundreds of students, teachers and parents gave the board their own lesson in civil disobedience.

On Tuesday, hundreds of students from high schools across the Jefferson County school district, the second largest in Colorado, streamed out of school and along busy thoroughfares, waving signs and championing the value of learning about the fractious and tumultuous chapters of American history.

“It’s gotten bad,” said Griffin Guttormsson, a junior at Arvada High School who wants to become a teacher and spent the school day soliciting honks from passing cars. “The school board is insane. You can’t erase our history. It’s not patriotic. It’s stupid.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"The most successful tyranny is not the one that uses force to assure uniformity but the one that removes the awareness of other possibilities, that makes it seem inconceivable that other ways are viable, that removes the sense that there is an outside." --Allan Bloom, The Closing of the American Mind

In other words, you are kept slaves not by force, but by making sure you are unaware of alternatives to the imposed reality.

There is nothing new in erasing from the curriculum knowledge the government and the money-junkies do not want you to have. The prime cause of the American Revolution, according to Ben Franklin and many of the other Founding Fathers, was King George III's Currency act, which forced the American colonists to conduct all commerce using bank notes borrowed at interest from the Rothschild-owned Bank of England. This practice plunged the working classes of America into the same crushing poverty as working people in Britain of the same time. In 1913, when a corrupt Congress and a corrupt President sold us back into the slavery of the very same system of banking, the public schools stopped teaching about the Currency act and presented the American Revolution as being about the Stamp Act, tea in Boston Harbor, and so forth, so that generations of Americans, believing they were educated, were ignorant of the fact that this nation was started and did quite well using an entirely different system of national economics.

Today the government doesn't want children growing up aware that there even was a revolution, given that we now suffer many of the same evils that prompted the first one. I am proud of these students and teachers for taking a stand against manufactured history!

The New Normal for the American Dream – 3 Cornerstones: Low wage jobs, high levels of college debt, and a retirement that consists of working until you pass away.

There seems to be a growing acceptance that the American Dream is hardly as accessible as it once was. Low wage jobs, higher education tuition pushing many into untenable levels of debt, and a new vision of retirement all seem to connect into one new theme. The new theme revolves on a much more challenging road in achieving the American Dream. The majority of working Americans have no sizable portion of stock wealth. In fact, close to 90 percent of stock wealth is in the hands of 10 percent of the population. That is why in spite of the rise of the stock market by 200 percent since 2009, many Americans remain gloomy when it comes to the economy.

Justice Department to review fatal police shooting of man in Walmart

The US government is to review the fatal police shooting of a man carrying a BB rifle in a Walmart store in Ohio, after a grand jury in the state declined to indict the officers involved.

The Justice Department’s civil rights division and the FBI will carry out a “thorough and independent review of the evidence” relating to the death of John Crawford III in Beavercreek last month, it was announced on Wednesday.

Carter Stewart, the US attorney for the southern district of Ohio, said in a statement that authorities would “take appropriate action if the evidence indicates a prosecutable violation of federal criminal civil rights statutes”.

"The Justice department would like to the see the UANI lawsuit go away as it is aware that what is being described as "law enforcement" documents would include both privileged and classified Treasury Department work product relating to individuals and companies that it has investigated for sanctions busting. Passing either intelligence related or law enforcement documents to a private organization is illegal but the Justice Department's only apparent concern is that the activity might be exposed. There is no indication that it would go after UANI for having acquired the information and it perhaps should be presumed that the source of the leak is the Treasury Department itself."

Intense Moment When Man On ‘No Fly’ List Tells Off TSA

A man on the federal “no fly” list flew from Minnesota to Colorado and was harassed by TSA agents upon arrival at Denver International Airport, but he refused to undergo the extra security screening and caught the whole incident on film.

Senate Torture Report Vanishes

Since a “forgive and forget” forward-looking White House has already indicated that no one will ever be punished for illegal actions undertaken in the wake of 9/11, why is the torture issue important beyond the prima facie case that a war crime that was authorized by the highest levels of the federal government? It is important because of its constitutional implications and its impact on rule of law in the United States, which is again being flouted by the Administration in its rush to “destroy” ISIS, which is little more than a terrorist group du jour being exploited to terrify the American public. The constitutional issue, in its simplest terms, is that the CIA works for the president and when it operates without legally mandated oversight by the legislative branch and judiciary it does so in defiance of separation of powers, making the Agency little better than a secret army run by POTUS.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This stinks to high heaven; and until and unless this is released, and the accusations of real torture are addressed to their root, the country of the United States of America has absolutely no moral authority whatsoever, period, end of discussion.

FBI, DHS Go Full Scaremonger: Warn Police Of Airstrike-Inspired "Homegrown Extremists" & "Disgruntled Employee" Threats

While careful to note 'no specific threats' have been found, it appears the FBI and DHS have decided it's time to show why local police departments needed to be fully militarized after all. In the first bulletin, according to Bloomberg, US security officials warned federal and local police to watch for “homegrown violent extremists” who may be motivated to attack by airstrikes in Syria. In the second bulletin, the FBI and DHS assess that disgruntled and former employees pose a significant threat to US businesses due to their authorized access to sensitive information and the networks businesses rely on.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

the US government has moved from the alleged threat of "terrorism" to "scarrorism" in this country, to try to keep people from thinking straight.

Peter King on ISIS: Be Ready for Attacks on US Soil

Intensifying U.S. airstrikes against the Islamic State (ISIS) could provoke members of the terror group already on U.S. soil to stage attacks here, Rep. Peter King tells Newsmax TV.

"First of all, these people would've attacked us anyway, but they may feel an urgency to do it now to show that ISIS can fight back, that ISIS is not going to take this," King, a New York Republican, said Tuesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show."

"We always have to be alert to them, [but] we have to be even more so now because they want to show . . . the Muslim world they're not going to sit back and take [it], they're going to fight back."

King, a member of the House Homeland Security Committee and chairman of the House Subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence, said he approves of intensified U.S. airstrikes against jihadists in the Middle East, although he wishes it had happened sooner.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Congressional Representative Peter King: if in fact ISIS (nudge, nudge, wink, wink) is able to attack the mainland, it means that every bit of surveillance, crotch groping at the airport, and spying by this government, has led to absolutely no actionable intelligence to prevent this from happening.

Should that happen, every security agency in the USA, the CIA, the DHS, FBI, and NSA, and DIA, have all failed, collectively and spectacularly.

After Ferguson, police get media training with session titled 'Feeding the Animals'

The PR team being brought in to teach Missouri cops how to handle the media apparently needs a little sensitivity training themselves.

Weeks of unrest in Ferguson, Mo., and the intense media scrutiny that came with it made an impact in at least one tangible way. The St. Louis County and Municipal Police Academy plans to offer an October continuing education session called "Officer-involved shooting - You can win with the media."

But with bullet points such as "Meet the 900-pound Gorilla" and "Feeding the Animals," you have to wonder just how media-friendly this workshop — headed by Rick Rosenthal, President of RAR Communications, Inc. — will actually be.

Internet anti-Semitism a ‘mortal danger,’ say MKs

Anti-Semitism on the net is “like a tsunami wave,” Knesset Immigration, Absorption and Diaspora Committee chairman MK Yoel Razbozov said during a Sunday hearing on online hate speech.

Razbozov called for countries to enact legislation restricting online hate, and warned that if Jews will not act to combat the spread of anti-Semitism online, they will eventually “find themselves in mortal danger.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Although Israel uses words like "anti-Semitism" and "hate", what they are really opposed to is freedom of speech, as exemplified by the below article revealing how the Smithsonian got hoaxed by some tiles and tricked into claiming that the presence of gas chambers at Treblinka had been proven. Israel loves to tell lies and declares that those who challenge such lies must be "jew haters." No, we are lie haters, and there is a difference. But the object lesson here is that Israel hates the American principle of freedom of speech, and Israel, far more than Al Qaeda or ISIS, is an enemy of the American way of life.

Louisiana Police Chief Rapes Drunk Woman, Commits Perjury, Tells Town Officials to "Stick It" When They Call For His Resignation.

Police Chief Earl Theriot responded to a call for an intoxicated woman at a store. He took her back to the station and forced her to have sex with him. Theriot reportedly had the woman handcuffed and restrained with her belt at the time of the assault and stashed her under his desk in the police station.

When the woman filed a federal lawsuit against the chief, town officials called for his resignation. The chief denied he committed the crime and said "they can stick it." He lied to federal investigators about the incident, claiming she was never at the police station.

He then pleaded guilty and received a devastating sentence of PROBATION for two years (no jail time), a $2500 dollar fine, and was allowed to resign his job, which we can assume means he will keep his benefits.

Breaking the silence: Lois Lerner cops a plea in first ever interview

The former Internal Revenue Service official who has practically become a household name for her role in a major scandal involving her section of arguably the nation's most powerful agency, is now on the record in a Monday interview with a left-leaning Internet news and commentary website. She claims she's innocent of any wrongdoing and that she's not sorry for anything she did while at the IRS. In the vernacular of law enforcement, "she copped a plea."

Lois Lerner, who was the director of the IRS's Office of Tax Exempt Organizations, consented to an interview with Politico, the first ever. When questioned under oath by members of the U.S. Congress she twice invoked her Fifth Amendment constitutional right to "remain silent."

Too many people to be involved in such a conspiracy? Don't underestimate some people's naivety, and others' perfidy; there are more than enough people out there who carry out such treacherous tasks gladly, believing it to be fully justified 'for Queen and country'. The simplicity of a referendum in which people are asked to place an X beside a simple Yes or No answer works great in a world where people can be assumed to be honest and to 'play by the rules'. But when a couple of trillion pounds in oil is at stake, well, the 'rules' bend.

Obama administration ‘blocking’ information from the press – AP

Uncovering information that should be available to the public has become increasingly difficult under the presidency of Barack Obama, an Associated Press bureau chief says. In some cases, it surpasses the secrecy of the George W. Bush administration.

The White House’s penchant for secrecy does not just apply to the federal government, according to AP's Washington bureau chief, Sally Buzbee. During a joint meeting of news editors, she stated that the same kind of behavior is starting to appear in state and local governments.

Government watching for 'Americans with guns'

The terrorism threat is becoming more and more ominous for Americans: Two of the three victims murdered by ISIS Muslims in the past few weeks have been American. There has been evidence of Muslims crossing into the U.S. illegally from Mexico. And there have been individual instances of Muslims accused of killing Americans in the U.S.

So what is U.S. Attorney General Eric Holders plan? A “community based” approach.

He’s suggested that groups outside of traditional law enforcement can keep an eye out for, or intervene in the lives of individuals who may be at risk for radicalization.

Merck, Other Pharma Companies Helped Fund Activist Groups Who Petitioned the EPA to Regulate Nano-Silver as a Pesticide

Last year it was revealed that a handful of the activist agencies behind the petition to the EPA to regulate nano-silver as a pesticide received funding from pharmaceutical giant Merck, which annually has hundreds of billions of dollars in profits from patented antibioics which many believe are less effective, less safe and far more expensive than colloidal nano-silver products.

Important victory in case of Ray McGovern's brutal arrest

The Partnership for Civil Justice Fund is pleased to announce an important victory in the ongoing case of peace activist Ray McGovern, the former CIA analyst, who was brutalized and arrested by officers in 2011 for standing in silent protest during a speech given by then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The PCJF filed a civil rights lawsuit on behalf of Mr. McGovern challenging the arrest and brutality, and seeking an injunction against the State Department related to its issuing a "Be On the Look-Out" ( BOLO) alert against Mr. McGovern which directed agents to stop and question him on sight.

We have obtained the relief sought in the litigation against the Department of State and confirmed that the BOLO alert is now rescinded and that the U.S. State Department has advised other law enforcement that it is non-operational.

What a strange and harrowing road we’ve walked since September 11, 2001, littered with the debris of our once-vaunted liberties.

PDF of "report" on anti-semitism being sent to US colleges and universities.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Following up on the termination of Steven Salaita and the leaked email from ADL demanding US colleges and universities suppress pro-Palestinian groups and activities, we find this document which is being circulated to those institutions of higher learning indoctrination which defines as anti-semitism areas of intellectual inquiry that would be considered protected free speech under the First Amendment. Pay attention in particular to Appendix 3, which includes as anti-semitism any discussions as to whether the official story of the holocaust has been exaggerated!

Under these guidelines, students mentioning that the Aushwitz museum revised downward the number of people who died there of all causes by 2.5 million would be declared anti-Semitic and subject to official silencing by the school.



From this document, it should be obvious that the real enemy of the American way of life is not Al Qaeda, not ISIS, not Russia, not China, but the state of Israel!

Fullerton California (Department that murdered Kelly Thomas) Cop Caught Coercing Woman to Provide Sex in Exchange for a Favorable Testimony

According to the lawsuit, Fullerton detective Ronald Bair investigated a restraining order breach on December 2012. The victim (whom we'll call Jane Doe, per basic journalistic ethics) had recently moved to a safe house for battered women with her young daughter to get away from an abusive ex-husband. The detective interviewed Doe at department headquarters and offered to testify on her behalf in upcoming custody hearings. After one, Bair and Doe went to El Torito, where the lawsuit alleges Bair asked for "sexy pictures" after making inappropriate comments about her body.

"The plaintiff felt that she had no option but to comply with the officer's requests as she was by then totally dependent on him, both for the criminal investigation and the custody case involving her daughter," the complaint reads.

Supreme Court ruling hasn’t stopped police from warrantless requests for data

Law enforcement agencies are still making warrantless requests for telecom customers’ personal data months after a Supreme Court ruling appeared to shut down the practice.

Police in Canada used to ask telecom companies to voluntarily hand over data on Canadian customers more than a million times per year. In June, the Supreme Court struck down this warrantless method as an invasion of privacy.

But while the number of warrantless requests has dropped since the decision, they have not stopped, an investigation by the Star and the Halifax Chronicle Herald has found. Key players, including the country’s largest police force and a major telecom, aren’t saying whether they still send or accept them.

The NSA and GCHQ Campaign Against German Satellite Companies

“Fuck!” That is the word that comes to the mind of Christian Steffen, the CEO of German satellite communications company Stellar PCS. He is looking at classified documents laying out the scope of something called Treasure Map, a top secret NSA program. Steffen’s firm provides internet access to remote portions of the globe via satellite, and what he is looking at tells him that the company, and some of its customers, have been penetrated by the U.S. National Security Agency and British spy agency GCHQ.

Stellar’s visibly shaken chief engineer, reviewing the same documents, shares his boss’ reaction. “The intelligence services could use this data to shut down the internet in entire African countries that are provided access via our satellite connections,” he says.

TSA Not Sure If It Groped Man Before Flight, Demands To Grope Him After Flight Is Over

Via Amy Alkon, we learn of yet another bizarre moment in the world of security theater known as the TSA. It involves a young man from Orono, Minnesota, named Kahler Nygard, who for reasons no one will ever explain, happens to be on a "selectee" list for flying. It's not quite the no fly list, but it's the list where you get four S's on your boarding pass ("SSSS"), and the TSA is then supposed to give you and your bags that extra level of privacy-destroying attention, including a full gropedown. Nygard claims he got the full groping in Minnesota, but the TSA (or potentially a Spirit airlines employee) apparently believed it was overlooked -- though, they didn't "realize" this until the flight was halfway to Denver.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So the flight is over, no act of terror was committed, but TSA still wants to give him a grope.

Balkanization and US’ full spectrum dominance

THE tentacles of the balkanization policy of fragmenting states into small entities has spread worldwide initiated by civil rights societies at first with protests which have the flare of popular uprisings against the incumbent governments for democracy, human rights, minority rights and secularism. More is yet to come in the Middle East using local collaborators and once the West has achieved its objective it will discard them as they did with Saddam Hussein and are now in the process of doing with Nouri Al-Maliki in Iraq. One must remember how Al-Qaeda had been declared enemy “Number One” by the US-NATO yet Al-Qaeda is fighting on the side of the US-NATO in Syria (Al-Nusrat) and Al-Qaeda groups (LIFG) listed among the UN terror list deposed Muammar Gaddafi and destroyed Libya, which ranked as the number one country in Africa under the UN Human Index.

New Zealand’s Prime Minister Isn’t Telling The Truth About Mass Surveillance

Let me be clear: any statement that mass surveillance is not performed in New Zealand, or that the internet communications are not comprehensively intercepted and monitored, or that this is not intentionally and actively abetted by the GCSB, is categorically false. If you live in New Zealand, you are being watched. At the NSA I routinely came across the communications of New Zealanders in my work with a mass surveillance tool we share with GCSB, called “XKEYSCORE.” It allows total, granular access to the database of communications collected in the course of mass surveillance. It is not limited to or even used largely for the purposes of cybersecurity, as has been claimed, but is instead used primarily for reading individuals’ private email, text messages, and internet traffic. I know this because it was my full-time job in Hawaii, where I worked every day in an NSA facility with a top secret clearance.

The New "Regime Change" Plan - Attack Damascus From The South

There are serious active preparations for a new attack on Damascus. Anti-government forces, including the Al-Qaeda affiliate Jabhat al-Nusra, have been trained and equipped in Jordan and are now moving into their starting position in Quneitra governate in south-west Syria. (A similar plan in spring 2013 was only partially executed and later aborted.)

The anti-government forces now control a 40 miles (70km) long, three miles (5km) wide strip from Jordan along the Golan frontier up to Lebanon. This strip can be used to infiltrate into Hizbullah territory in south Lebanon but its main purpose is likely an attack on Damascus from the south. The Syrian military would have great difficulties to dislodge the anti-government forces from this strip as it is covered by Israeli anti-air and artillery fire.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When will this Administration collectively man up, and tell the American people the truth?!?

I am really, thoroughly disgusted with this government, and the interminable amounts of codswallop it expects Americans to swallow on a daily basis, in terms of the damned lies they are trying to get us to believe in to support this war.

This whole ISIS pretext for US military involvement, is about regime change in Syria and Iran, period, end of discussion.

The big questions here are, how soon Al-Assad will want to invoke his mutual defense pact with Iran, and just what Russia will do if, in fact, that mutual defense pact is invoked by Al-Assad.

Were I a betting woman, I would not bet against Russia getting involved militarily against the US in Iran's behalf.

And the hell of it is, neither the US nor Israel can reasonably expect to successfully wage a conventional war against Russia; they don't have the money, the manufacturing, or the troop strength to make this happen.

Additionally, I do not want to see the best and brightest of our military be killed or maimed for life over what is essentially a war for private profit.

And that is the dirty little secret of all wars; they are all ultimately about private profit.

Sadly, we have seen a trend in recent decades for the government to protect corporations against the people, rather than protecting the people against corporations. Along with computers, other industries we are dependent on are being protected against product liability lawsuits, such as vaccine manufacturers, and other biotech corporations. This is a practice typically seen under fascist governments, and it never ends well.

The computers don't last. The software will not install. The aqueducts are leaking. The roads are cracking.

ECHR case challenges UK government over surveillance of journalists’ communications

The Bureau of Investigative Journalism is asking a European court to rule on whether UK legislation properly protects journalists’ sources and communications from government scrutiny and mass surveillance.

The action follows concerns about the implications to journalists of some of the revelations that have come out of material leaked by Edward Snowden.

Human Rights Watch Blasts the FBI’s ‘Terror Informant’ Industry

Here one prime example of the FBI’s Informant Industry – ever since the two Tsarnaev brothers were announced by the FBI as their “prime suspects” in the Boston Bombing which occurred on Monday April 15th, 2013, every major US media network and government agency had assumed (along with President Obama) that these suspects were guilty – based solely a single photograph claiming to place them as fleeing the scene of the alleged bombing. The FBI claimed to not know the names and identities of the brothers when they released their pictures to the world press, pleading, ‘please send us any information relating to these two new faces’. 21WIRE quickly discovered that not only did the FBI know who BOTH brothers were, but elder brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev had already been recruited by the agency as an informant (his file is likely classified, meaning the public are not allowed to know the real story), and was most likely working for either the FBI or another agency in that capacity.

De-hired Professor Steven Salaita Is a University's Worst Nightmare

Steven G. Salaita, whose job offer was rescinded after he posted vitriolic anti-Israel tweets during the recent Gaza war, made clear not long ago that he wants his position reinstated. At a September 9 press conference he dismissed reported efforts the university has made to reach a financial settlement instead. Meanwhile, at a meeting on September 10, the UIUC trustees soundly defeated a proposal to reconsider their withdrawal of the tenured position Salaita had been due to take up this semester

With the debate over the controversy brewing in university corridors, academic publications and in online discussions, pressure on the UIUC administration to reinstate Salaita has been growing. Five departments have voted no confidence in Chancellor Phyllis Wise, a handful of scholars have canceled planned lectures and events at UIUC, and several large academic organizations have issued statements condemning the decision not to hire Salaita.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Salaita was kicked out of his job, not for comments he made in a classroom, but comments he made as a private citizen that are protected by the First Amendment. Everyone who supports the termination of Salaita or of anyone for comments they make in private shows themselves to be an enemy of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, and everything America is supposed to stand for.

Spy court renews NSA metadata program

With a surveillance reform bill stuck in the Senate, the federal court overseeing spy agencies on Friday reauthorized the National Security Agency’s controversial bulk collection of Americans' phone records.

Reauthorization from the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) allows the NSA to continue to warrantlessly collect “metadata” in bulk about people’s phone calls. The records contain information about which numbers people called, when and how long they talked, but not the actual content of their conversations.

ADVERTISEMENT
“Given that legislation has not yet been enacted, and given the importance of maintaining the capabilities of the Section 215 telephony metadata program, the government has sought a 90-day reauthorization of the existing program,” the Justice Department and Office of the Director of National Intelligence said in a joint statement, referring to the section of the Patriot Act that authorizes the program.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This particularly galls me.

Mike and I are involved in a food distribution charity, co-sponsored by my Church, and the local Catholic Church.

JUDGE ANDREW NAPOLITANO: There's a view amongst the public that they are prepared to trade civil liberties for security because they have accepted what is in my view the myth that by trading civil liberties they will somehow be safer. The question I would like to see in that poll is, are we less free today than we were on September 10, 2001? And I would say that we are profoundly less free. Every single liberty guaranteed in the Bill of Rights has been violated with impunity by the Bush administration and by the Obama administration.

BRET BAIER: We are less free and less safe?

Claims under that coverage were filed for the first time after the Boston Marathon bombings. But insurance companies haven’t paid out — because the federal government doesn’t consider the Boston Marathon bombing an act of terrorism.

Diane then said a highly decorated military officer, who serves on the National Security Council, came to their house to warn them about the pending prosecutions.

FLASHBACK - FBI Asks Clinton Not to Release Leonard Peltier, As His Supporters Fight for Executive Clemency

FBI Director Louis Freeh yesterday urged President Clinton not to commute the life sentence of Leonard Peltier, the Native American activist who has served almost 24 years in prison. Peltier was convicted of killing two FBI agents on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota in 1975, a crime he has always said he did not commit. In a show of support for Freeh, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, Representative Henry Hyde, a Republican of Illinois, has released a letter to Clinton and Attorney General Janet Reno also opposing clemency.

On Friday, actors, musicians and activists are uniting to renew calls for clemency for one of America’s most well-known and longest-incarcerated prisoners: Leonard Peltier. The Native American activist and former member of the American Indian Movement was convicted of abetting the killing of two FBI agents during a shootout on South Dakota’s Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in 1975.

Meet The Puppetmasters: Here Are The 25 Most Politically Influential Billionaires In The US

For one answer we turn to Brookings Institution Governance Studies Director Darrell West in whose upcoming book "Billionaires: Reflections on the Upper Crust" examines the political use of great wealth, including campaign expenditures, activism through nonprofit organizations and foundations, holding public office, media ownership, policy thought leadership, and behind the scenes influence. Most importantly, it ranks the 25 most influential American billionaires.

So from the Koch Brothers, to Bloomberg, to Tom Steyer, all the way to Marc Andreesen, Donald Trump and Alice Walton, here they are, whether readers agree with the ranking or not.

Student debt over $50K is on the rise

Almost 19% of student loan borrowers owe more than $50,000, according to a report published last week by the Federal Reserve. Only 6% of borrowers had that much in 2001. Student loan debt now outstrips credit card and auto loan debt in America.

Native American Activist and Member of the American Indian Movement: Leonard Peltier Case


Leonard Peltier (born September 12, 1944) is a Native American activist and member of the American Indian Movement (AIM). In 1977 he was convicted and sentenced to two consecutive terms of life imprisonment for first degree murder in the shooting of two Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) agents during a 1975 conflict on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.

Peltier's indictment and conviction is the subject of the 1992 documentary Incident at Oglala, a film directed by Michael Apted. Peltier has been identified as a political prisoner by certain activist groups. Amnesty International placed his case under the "Unfair Trials" category of its Annual Report: USA 2010, citing concerns with the fairness of the proceedings. His murder conviction has survived appeals in various courts over the years.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Actual examination of the facts reveals that the FBI coerced witnesses and fabricated evidence to frame Leonard Peltier in a pattern all too recognizable to anyone who has studied the crimes of COINTELPRO or the framing of James Earl Ray for the assassination of Martin Luther King. The available evidence from "Incident at Oglala" ( which is sadly no longer available in its entirety on the net) plus statements made by others at the scene suggest that the two FBI agents were accidentally shot by one of their own as they lay in ambush for members of AIM. The back story to the incident involves a faction fight between political corruption that was trying to allow corporate exploitation of resources in the reservation versus the residents who wanted to live their lives in the traditional way. The Val Kilmer film, "Thunderheart" is loosely based on these events, although the movie has a much happier ending than the real story.

TODAY IS LEONARD PELTIER'S BIRTHDAY AND WE WISH HIM MANY HAPPY RETURNS AND AN EVENTUAL REDRESS ON THE INJUSTICE OF HIS IMPRISONMENT.

90% of Americans Don’t Know About the 3rd WTC Building that “Fell Down” Five Hours After the Twin Towers on 9/11

That piece of information was withheld from the public by the 9/11 commission.

Americans, you can now no longer say like the German public after WW2, “we didn’t know.”
From now on, your do know!
Beginning on Wednesday, September 11, the United States Organization of Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth has placed a massive, 45-foot video billboard of the World Trade Cente showing Burilding Number seven’s controlled demolition.
The billboard in Times Square is timed to run for the 13th anniversary of 9/11 and on through October 5th.

President's ISIS speech fails to mention plan to protect homeland

U.S. President and Commander in Chief Barack Obama on Wednesday night held a prime-time televised address to the American people, which was admittedly designed to explain to the people that the President actually has a strategy for taking on the threat posed by the Islamic State (ISIS). That strategy entails air strikes and promises of coalition ground forces increasing in Iraq, as well as the possibility of the U.S. extending bombing missions to include Islamic State forces in Syria. But critics say he neglected to mention steps taken to prevent ISIS and other Muslim terrorist organizations from entering the United States.

American shakedown: Police won't charge you, but they'll grab your money

On its official website, the Canadian government informs its citizens that “there is no limit to the amount of money that you may legally take into or out of the United States.” Nonetheless, it adds, banking in the U.S. can be difficult for non-residents, so Canadians shouldn’t carry large amounts of cash.

That last bit is excellent advice, but for an entirely different reason than the one Ottawa cites.

There’s a shakedown going on in the U.S., and the perps are in uniform.

9/11 After 13 years Paul Craig Roberts

The corrupt Bush and Obama regimes used 9/11 to kill, maim, dispossess and displace millions of Muslims in seven countries, none of whom had anything whatsoever to do with 9/11.

A generation of Americans has been born into distain and distrust of Muslims.

A generation of Americans has been born into a police state in which privacy and constitutional protections no longer exist.

A generation of Americans has been born into continuous warfare while needs of citizens go unmet.

A generation of Americans has been born into a society in which truth is replaced with the endless repetition of falsehoods.

Obama says he has authority to take action against IS

U.S. President Barack Obama told top lawmakers Tuesday that he has the authority he needs to take action against Islamic State (IS) militants.

Obama, U.S. Vice President Joe Biden and Congressional leaders had a "productive" discussion and the leaders expressed their support for efforts to degrade and ultimately destroy IS, the White House said in a statement. The Islamic State, or the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), is an al-Qaida splinter group also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

The meeting came ahead of a speech on Wednesday evening in which Obama will lay out his plan to fight the extremist group.

Obama told the Leaders that he would welcome action by Congress that would "aid the overall effort" and demonstrate to the world that the United States is united in defeating the threat from IS, said the statement.

Guatemala rejects 'Monsanto Law' that would have given multinational seed companies control over agriculture

New legislation dubbed the "Monsanto Law" has been roundly rejected by activist groups and citizens in Guatemala, who argue that it has put the nation's food security and farm economy in jeopardy.

The law, formerly called "Law for the Protection of New Plant Varieties," was approved by the Guatemalan congress June 10, but has been widely panned since. Supporters say it is designed to protect the intellectual property of plant breeders who were deemed to have "created" or "discovered" new plant varieties, or who have genetically modified existing varieties.

The law effectively permits "breeders" -- which are typically biotech giants like Monsanto -- to obtain property rights over the use of plant varieties, in the form of both plants and seeds.

Zionists try to close down Palestine solidarity group at Philadelphia university

Members of Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) at Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, have sought legal advice after being falsely accused of anti-Semitism.

The accusations, made by a right-wing Zionist student and Israel-aligned media, have prompted an investigation by the university’s administration that could result in punishment of the Palestine solidarity group.

Temple University announced that it has sent the results of their investigation — which have not been made public — to the local district attorney’s office last week.

A Zionist student aggressively confronted and made racist comments to SJP members who were tabling during a large student organization information fair on 20 August. A student unaffiliated with SJP then slapped him in the face.

The Zionist student, who is also a fellow of CAMERA on Campus (a project of the right-wing, anti-Palestinian media watchdog group CAMERA) claimed that the students taunted him with an anti-Semitic slur.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Israeli student clearly provoked the confrontation, but the university wants to punish the Palestinians. Yeah, that makes a lot of sense, but only to Israel.

Why aren’t we talking about racism and colonialism in the Salaita affair?

Systemic racism and colonialism extend far beyond (and in fact do not require) any conscious, willful intent to be racist or a colonizer (although they often do); rather, they simply need to produce outcomes that reinforce an entrenched historical pattern in which people of color and/or the colonized are disproportionately marginalized or harmed.

As such, these systemic injustices can be produced through any number of actions that are nominally colorblind and/or contain only unrecognized biases. Furthermore, because systemic racism is primarily a trait of a social system, rather than of individuals, it can actually be perpetuated by people of color, including Chancellor Wise and others on the University of Illinois’ board of trustees. In fact, systemic racism often benefits from and seeks out the inclusion of “multicultural diversity” because it helps to deflect attention and blame from ongoing racist outcomes.

Want to Reform the NSA? Give Edward Snowden Immunity

In 1970, Christopher Pyle disclosed in public writing that the U.S. Army was running a domestic intelligence program aimed at anti-war and civil-rights activists. His disclosure began a series of public-accountability leaks, the most famous of which was Daniel Ellsberg's leak of the Pentagon Papers. These disclosures, the FBI's notorious abuses in COINTELPRO, and the Watergate leaks taught Americans that the national-security system can take profoundly dangerous constitutional turns. They formed the foundation of the political will that led to the passage of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act in 1978. And although Ellsberg and his collaborator Anthony Russo were prosecuted, their cases were dismissed.

Innocent Staunton motorist caught in seizure net

The traffic stop on that balmy afternoon in August 2012 was the beginning of a dizzying encounter that would leave Stuart shaken and wondering whether he had been singled out because he was black and had a police record.

Over the next two hours, he would be detained without charges, handcuffed and taken to a nearby police station. He also would be stripped of $17,550 in cash — money that he had earned through Smoking Roosters, a small barbecue restaurant he owned in Staunton, Va. Stuart said he was going to use the money that night for supplies and equipment.

The reason for the police stop: Stuart's SUV had tinted windows and a video was playing in his sightline. He was never charged with a crime, and there was no evidence of criminal wrongdoing. But police took his money because they assumed it was related to the drug trade.

Guess who's coming to dinner? The Coucil on Foreign Relations

President Obama hosted "a private dinner with a group of foreign policy experts," the White House announced last night. Among them: Sandy Berger, who was caught stealing and destroying classified documents that related to President Clinton's record on terrorism issues.

"Former National Security Adviser Sandy Berger was sentenced Thursday to community service and probation and fined $50,000 for illegally removing highly classified documents from the National Archives and intentionally destroying some of them," CNN reported in 2005.

"Berger must perform 100 hours of community service and pay the fine as well as $6,905 for the administrative costs of his two-year probation, a district court judge ruled."

Ronald A. Cass, in 2007, noted that Berger took extraordinary steps to cover up his crime:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This little confab makes me extraordinarily nervous about what this Administration has planned to "sell" the American people on the coming war against ISIS.

I, for one, am not buying.

And this constant, verbal, IV "drip" of Obama's assurance that there will be "no US troops in the ground" in Iraq is rather sickening my stomach, rather than having the desired effect, and here is why.

The President, Congress, State Department, and Pentagon should have learned, after the debacle which was the Vietnam War, that you cannot win what is essentially a ground war from the air.

And I would like to politely suggest that one of the classic definitions of insanity is doing the same thing over and over, in precisely the same way, yet expecting a different outcome.

So I have to wonder two things: is the alleged "war" against Isis a cover for going back into Iraq, and ultimately Syria?!? The short answer is, absolutely yes.

Are we going to see this alleged "strategy" of "no US boots on the ground" escalate, and fast, to not only having a substantial number of US military boots on the ground but reinstituting a draft?!?

Were I a betting woman, I would not bet against those last two scenarios.

Five Eyes spy pact: Transparency challenge lodged at European rights court

The cross-border ‘Five Eyes’ agreement that authorizes the sharing of intelligence between Britain, America, Australia, Canada and New Zealand should be made transparent, according to an appeal launched at the European Court of Human Rights.

The secret Five Eyes spy pact allegedly outlines UK security services’ collaboration with the National Security Agency (NSA) and other foreign intelligence agencies. In an effort to shed light on the agreement, Privacy International (PI) issued a legal challenge against the British government in the Strasbourg-based court. The application was filed by UK law firm Leigh Day & Co Solicitors.

Anti-Maidan activists blast Yabloko party over US-funded protests

Representatives of the recently-founded anti-Maidan council claim that the veteran pro-democracy party has received millions from the US and plans to overthrow the Russian government with the help of Ukrainian and Georgian spin doctors.

The head of the Anti-Fascist anti-Maidan council, Evgeny Shabayev has told the popular mass circulation daily Izvestia that his group possessed information about Ukrainian and Georgian citizens who played major roles in preparations to the violent events leading to displacement of governments and dissolution of parliaments in these countries – the so-called ‘color revolutions’. Now these people arrive in Russia and start talks with representatives of the pro-democracy opposition party Yabloko and other opposition groups in order to prepare and launch a similar regime change in Russia, the activist claimed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Since the end of World War 2, the US Government has tried to covertly overthrow the governments of more than fifty other nations, succeeding about half of the time. Known successes are Iran in 1953 and Chile in 1973. Known failures include Iran in 2009 and arguably Libya and Ukraine today.

For years, it received no oversight by government, even though its reports contained law enforcement sensitive information about traffic stops and seizures, along with hunches and personal data about drivers, including Social Security numbers and identifying tattoos.

US banks suddenly close dozens of accounts, Muslim group suspects racial profiling

Dozens in the US have received notices that their bank accounts have been closed, without explanation. Some say the banks are trying to eliminate risk, but a Muslim civil rights group suspects racist policies and has complained to the Justice Department.

The letters have been sent to business owners, nonprofits, and students across the country, according to reports. However, no explanation has been provided in any of the notices.

Last year, reports surfaced that Iranian students studying at the University of Minnesota had their accounts closed. Now banks appear to be closing the accounts of people who have connections to Kuwait and Syria.

It Will Cost Taxpayers $5 Billion To Help Obama Create An ISIS Strategy

As The Hill reports, White House press secretary Josh Earnest floated the $5 billion counterterrorism fund as something that “would strengthen the hand of this president and future presidents for dealing with urgent situations like this." We await Wednesday night's unveiling of the long-awaited strategy...

Preparing To Asset-strip Local Governments? The Fed’s Bizarre New Rules

In an inscrutable move that has alarmed state treasurers, the Federal Reserve, along with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, just changed the liquidity requirements for the nation’s largest banks. Municipal bonds, long considered safe liquid investments, have been eliminated from the list of high-quality liquid collateral. assets (HQLA). That means banks that are the largest holders of munis are liable to start dumping them in favor of the Treasuries and corporate bonds that do satisfy the requirement.

Why would regulators dangerously jeopardize state and local government budgets in this way? Skeptical observers speculate that the intent is to Detroit-ize municipal governments, so that assets can be stripped as is being done in that imperiled city. The international bankers got away with asset-stripping Greece. Why not make the US itself a wholly-owned subsidiary of private banking interests?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

At the risk of sounding like a chipped CD, please have no more money in the bank than you need to handle bills; keep the rest under your personal control.

Find resources from which you can purchase small amounts of gold and silver.

Don't have anything stored in a bank deposit box, because in times of a "financial emergency", the Federal Government now has the right to expropriate whatever they find in those boxes.

Folks, something wicked this way comes, economically; the best you can do is be as prepared for it in the most intelligent way possible.

Why we love to hate conspiracy theories: 911 Truth as threat to the intelligentsia

What ever happened to “war is a racket” and “follow the money”?

In rigorous compliance with the true meanings of “academic freedom” [2] and “freedom of the press” virtually no academics or mainstream journalists have made it their research to find truth or to radically (at the root) question the establishment version.

Indeed, all the major and considered-radical academic pundits such as Noam Chomsky and Ward Churchill, have actively avoided the possibility that the 911 attacks could have been known or aided from within the finance-corporate-military complex.

What keeps them from crossing that line? What makes them demean attempts to cross that line? [3]

Latest IRS email loss evidence of out of control government under Obama

The latest report on Friday describing suspected lawless behavior by the United States' most powerful law enforcement agency is being characterized as an arrogant and cynical insult to the intellect of the American people and evidence of out of control government under Barack Obama.

Celebrity photo leak: Fake links to nude photos cause nationwide internet crash in New Zealand

New Zealanders keen to view hacked photos of naked celebrities have been blamed for a nationwide internet meltdown involving the country's main provider.

It is believed a handful of computer users clicked links on Friday evening believing they would be taken to the illicit images, but instead caused them to inadvertently install malware, triggering a crippling internet attack.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A test to take down the internet during the next false-flag attack?

There is no way the perpetrators of a new 9-11 can allow the independent media to operate during a false-flag, lest we find and report the signs of fraud. Remember that in the weeks ahead of 9-11, the FBI was shutting down Muslim websites here in the US, to prevent the victims of the coming frame-up from defending themselves while the official story was implanted into the population.

And the fact that this shut down was confined by the planted malware to only New Zealand suggests it was an operational test.

So don't start clicking links to see naked celebrities this next week.

LA Times Journalist Cleared Articles With CIA Before Publishing

A former Los Angeles Times national security journalist routinely sent drafts of his articles to CIA press handlers for input and revision, the Intercept revealed on Friday.

Email exchanges between Ken Dilanian and public relations officers at the agency were discovered after the Intercept sent a FOIA request to the CIA over its relationship with reporters. In many of the emails, Dilanian promised to provide the agency with positive coverage, often going so far as to change entire drafts of articles based on the CIA's replies.

Patriot Act’s absurd new spawn: Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse

Congress may be preparing to reinforce two horrible FISA Court decisions and an abusive government search with no debate in the coming weeks: a decision to give national security orders unlimited breadth, one making it legal for the government to investigate Americans for activities protected under the First Amendment, and the FBI’s “back door” searches of Americans’ communication content collected under the FISA Amendment Act Section 702 authority.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Congress is most likely giving this approval because they know what these governmental agencies have on them!

And right after, he slipped out of the country for awhile so he couldn't be questioned on his reversal.

On The Brink Of A Major Crisis: “This Will Be A Literal Collapse of the Entire Global Monetary System”

Discussions of the possible collapse of the U.S. dollar often center around how such an event will affect the domestic economy. But the dollar doesn’t just operate inside of a bubble. It is the world’s reserve currency for a reason. Some sixty-six countries world-wide either utilize it as their primary currency or peg their own currencies to its exchange rate. What this means, as noted by Future Money Trends in the micro documentary below, is that if and when the dollar does come under attack the fallout will be everywhere. The collapse will happen simultaneously and affect billions of people worldwide.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are 196 nations on Earth. If only 66 are tied to the US dollar, then by definition the US dollar has already lost the status of a "global" currency.

Lap Dancers, the CIA, Pay-offs, and BP’s Deepwater Horizon

The BP executive was explaining to me how the CIA, MI6 and British Petroleum engineered a coup d'état, overthrowing an elected president of a nation who was “not favorable to BP.” The corporation's former Vice-President, Leslie Abrahams, is pictured here, holding an AK-47 in front of BP headquarters in Baku, Azerbaijan. Like most of the other BP executives I spoke with, he proudly added that while he was working for BP, he was also an operative for MI6, British intelligence.
The conversation was far from the weirdest I had in my four-continent investigation of the real story of the Deepwater Horizon.

Andrew Cuomo: Debates Can Be 'A Disservice To Democracy'

With just four days until New York's gubernatorial primary, Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) and his running mate Kathy Hochul have yet to publicly acknowledge their most prominent Democratic challengers, Zephyr Teachout and her running mate Tim Wu -- beyond trying to have Teachout's name removed from the ballot, that is.

“I would like to challenge Kathy Hochul and Andrew Cuomo: say our names,” Wu said Thursday. “They seem to be unable to realize that we even exist.”

Cuomo has declined to participate in a debate with Teachout despite her repeated calls to do so. When asked what it says about his "respect for democracy," the governor claimed such open discussions can actually hinder the democratic process.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but has Governor Cuomo gone absolutely barking mad, to have made that statement?!?

That kind of remark is something one expects to come out of the mouth of a two bit, tin-pot dictator.

Or is he terrified that, on the issues, perhaps these challengers have some positive, can-do approaches about how to build an environment which will enrich the opportunities for businesses to thrive in this state.

Governor Cuomo, your fear and narcissism are showing; and I can assure you that those are not the kinds of emotions the voters of New York want to see from their candidates right now.

The Pentagon Is Giving Grenade Launchers to Campus Police

In 1968, students at Columbia University staged a mass uprising other college campuses in protesting not just the war in Vietnam, but their school’s collaboration with the Institute for Defense Analysis, a Defense Department affiliate that researches weapons technologies. Today, weapons produced by that institute are used by the US military throughout the world—and by campus police forces across the country. The war has come home.

The Pentagon’s 1033 program, which allows the Defense Department to unload its excess military equipment onto local police forces, has quietly overflowed onto college campuses. According to documents obtained by the website Muckrock, more than 100 campus police forces have received military materials from the Pentagon. Schools that participate in the program range from liberal arts to community colleges to the entire University of Texas system. Emory, Rice, Perdue, and the University of California, Berkeley, are all on the list.

Censorship Challenge: Texas Pastor Seeks Restrictions On `Dangerous' Library Books

KTRK-TV in Houston reports that Pastor Phillip Missick of King of Saints Tabernacle, is complaining about several books in the Austin Memorial Library. Not surprisingly, the tomes Missick has targeted deal with supernatural themes.

Apparently, the vampire craze that populates much young-adult fiction is still going strong. This bothers Missick. He is especially disturbed by the Twilight series and similar books titled Blood Promise and Vampire Knight.

Missick is coming to this a little late. The Twilight books are nine years old. (Ironically, the woman who authored them is a Mormon, and many people believe the underlying message of the series is conservative.) But he has decided to jump right in.

CDC caught in billion-dollar scheme to to sell vaccines

This is precisely the state of affairs at the Centers for Disease Control. The agency is, first and foremost, a PR machine. It promotes products. For example: vaccines.

So when CDC whistleblower William Thompson emerged from the shadows on August 27 and admitted he’d participated in research fraud, thereby giving the dangerous MMR vaccine a free pass by claiming it had no causal connection to autism…

he was illustrating a primary mission of his employer, the CDC: spread propaganda assuring the public that vaccines are safe.

Guatemala Rejects U.S. Trade Law Protecting Monsanto and GMOs

Big Biotech's promise to feed the world, by squeezing out every other choice against the will of the impoverished people intended as the target - is beyond cruel and exploitative. It is another way that the U.S. occupies other countries. How else are other people in these countries supposed to view multiple soft-sanctions on food, but as an act of war?

The people of Guatemala caught on to the deceptive nature of a U.S. Trade Agreement with Central America which was marketed as a way to "modernize" them. It also pretends to protect new seed varieties and paints the seed bearers in need of protection as small farmers. It is actually a way for big biotech and seed companies like Monsanto, DuPont, Duwest, Syngenta, etc. to assume power and immunity as owners of their food supply.

An Israeli source informed me earlier today that the Shabak arrested Muhammad Mahajna a few days ago. He is a young Israeli Palestinian (in his 20s) from Umm al-Fahm . A month ago he was arrested and questioned for postings published to his Facebook page during the Gaza war. He was then released. But four days ago, the secret police broke into his home and arrested him again.

No one has explained the nature of the charges against him. Though my source tells me they are “more serious” than those involving the previous Facebook posts. He is being held incommunicado. He has had no access to an attorney and the case is under gag order. No Israeli publication may write about his case.

Americans will soon be barred from boarding airplanes unless they surrender to federal 'Real ID' card

Residents of nine states who attempt to use their driver's license to enter some government agency offices will be denied, because their legislatures have not agreed to accept a federal law called REAL ID. In fact, according to The Boston Globe, if those states do not accept the law, residents will also eventually lose their ability to use driver's licenses to board commercial flights.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Okay, so legal Americans citizens are having to jump through hoops to prove they are legal American citizens, and may be denied boarding flights and entering Federal Buildings if they fail, at the same time illegal immigrants are being flooded into the nation, offered financial support, amnesty, and flown/bussed all over the place at taxpayer expense. Yeah. Sure. Makes a whole lot of sense!

Cameron seems to be considering breaking International law, not once but twice.

First he is considering arming the Kurds in Iraq without the permission from the Iraqi Government. Perhaps he thinks there really is a Kurdistan.

ISIS, ISIL or IS is armed, funded and trained by the USA. Their objective in Iraq is to totally destabalise the nation and weakening it by splitting it into three, part Kurd, part Iraqi and the remainder an Islamic Caliphate.

Secondly he’s openly suggesting that the UK should bomb parts of Syria without the permission of the Syrian Government , not any different in the slightest with Blair’s illegal invasion of Iraq. Cameron declares the Assad Government to be illegitimate.

That being the case in his mind, means that not a country in the world is safe from invasion or attack, Cameron can simply declare the Government to be illegitimate.

Proposed Helmetta photo limits may be unconstitutional, says NJ ACLU

A push by the borough to limit photography inside public buildings may already be in trouble.

According to ACLU of New Jersey Legal Director Ed Barocas, a draft ordinance being considered by the borough council that would force visitors to municipal buildings to obtain a permit before taking photos or video is “definitely subject to a legal challenge.”

“This is far too broad,” adds Barocas. “The idea that you would have to let the government know and to get approval to spontaneously obtain or disseminate information is a serious intrusion on free speech and freedom of the press.”

Newly Revealed NSA Program ICREACH Extends the NSA's Reach Even Further

Turns out, the DEA and FBI may know what medical conditions you have, whether you are having an affair, where you were last night, and more—all without any knowing that you have ever broken a law.

That’s because the DEA and FBI, as part of over 1000 analysts at 23 U.S. intelligence agencies, have the ability to peer over the NSA’s shoulder and see much of the NSA’s metadata with ICREACH.

California's Man-Made Drought

The state's water emergency is unfolding thanks to the latest mishandling of the Endangered Species Act. Last December, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service issued what is known as a "biological opinion" imposing water reductions on the San Joaquin Valley and environs to safeguard the federally protected hypomesus transpacificus, a.k.a., the delta smelt. As a result, tens of billions of gallons of water from mountains east and north of Sacramento have been channelled away from farmers and into the ocean, leaving hundreds of thousands of acres of arable land fallow or scorched.

Helmetta council mulls photo limits following cop video scandal

Following the resignation of a borough police officer after being caught on video making controversial statements about President Barack Obama, the borough council is considering new legislation that could make it harder for residents to use smartphones inside public buildings.

Exempting public meetings, the proposed ordinance will prevent visitors to Helmetta's municipal buildings from taking video or photographs without an approved permit.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One of the founding principles of this nation is that it is a nation of laws that apply to all equally. Yet here we see government watching us with TV cameras, reading our emails, listening to our phone calls, while telling us that we may not dare take pictures or videos of them while they are working on the public payroll!

Operation Choke Point could soon grip casinos

It has already hit gun and ammunition dealers. It has shut down pawnshops and short-term lenders. It has caused banks to discharge potentially thousands from their customer rolls who’ve done nothing illegal or improper. The next casualty will be America’s casino and gaming industry.

Operation Choke Point is a government program that the U.S. Department of Justice has said was designed to combat fraud in the marketplace, but its impact has been felt among law-abiding, legitimate businesses far more than unscrupulous bad actors. Operation Choke Point is a joint DOJ and FDIC program that allows these federal agencies to intimidate banks and payment processors into ending financial relationships with lawfully operating businesses. The casino industry is the next target.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Choke point is another US Government botch-up like the no-fly list, which has some 21,000 people on it even though no actual terrorist has been caught trying to board a US aircraft since 9-11. The government is harming the innocent, failing to catch the guilty, and has the arrogance to demand that you pay for this abuse!

Who's Telling the 'Big Lie' on Ukraine?

f you wonder how the world could stumble into World War III – much as it did into World War I a century ago – all you need to do is look at the madness that has enveloped virtually the entire U.S. political/media structure over Ukraine where a false narrative of white hats vs. black hats took hold early and has proved impervious to facts or reason.

The original lie behind Official Washington’s latest “group think” was that Russian President Vladimir Putin instigated the crisis in Ukraine as part of some diabolical scheme to reclaim the territory of the defunct Soviet Union, including Estonia and other Baltic states. Though not a shred of U.S. intelligence supported this scenario, all the “smart people” of Washington just “knew” it to be true.

Did Hitler really put fluoride in the water at concentration camps? If so why do we put it in are water?

Yes, fluoride was used in Nazi Concentration camps and the gulags in Siberia to make prisoners docile and easier to control. It is also absorbed through the skin when bathing, showering, or swimming in fluoridated water. You absorb through the tissues of your mouth when brushing your teeth. You don't have to swallow it. Cooking with fluoride in water concentrates it in food and beverages. You can't cook it out. Only 50% of it can be excretes by the body so it is a cumulative toxin leading to many health problems. Twenty-four studies have also shown it lowers IQ's in children.

In Kentucky, despite a 1977 fluoridation state-wide mandate, preschoolers cavity rates went from 28% in 1987 to 47% in 2001, according to the July/August 2003 journal, Pediatric Dentistry,

Department of Homeland Security – A 240,000 Person Cancer on the American Soul

Regular readers will be intimately familiar with my feelings on the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Long before it became obvious to millions of people, I wrote about how the DHS was never intended to prevent terrorist attacks, rather it had always been intended to suppress the American citizenry. Over the past decade, it has become a dangerous behemoth of fascism under the guise of the fraudulent “war on terror.”

No. This is the NATO Summit. You, your civil rights, your quest for peace, and your demand for a return to real democracy and pursuit of happiness are not wanted here.

U.S. Army Plans to Battle Anti-Government Dissidents in Megacities, Neutralize Groups “Undermining the Authority of the State”

The U.S. Army is preparing to fight political dissidents who challenge the power of the state as “megacities” become the battleground of the future, according to a new report in the Army Times.

The article details how the Army’s Capabilities Integration Center (ARCIC) worked with US Army Special Operations Command, the chief of staff’s Strategic Studies Group and the UK’s Ministry of Defence earlier this year to wargame the future of armed combat, which will revolve around the neutralization of groups “who can influence the lives of the population while undermining the authority of the state,” a chillingly vague description which could easily be applied to political dissidents.

Police Arrest Young Black Politician For Distributing Voting Rights Leaflets

The stars of North Carolina’s Moral Mondays movement took the stage on Labor Day at Charlotte’s Marshall Park to condemn the state’s record on voter suppression and racial profiling, and urge the community to organize and turn out at the polls this November. Just a few hundred feet away, police cuffed and arrested local LGBT activist and former State Senate candidate Ty Turner as he was putting voting rights information on parked cars.

“They said they would charge me for distributing literature,” Turner told ThinkProgress when he was released a few hours later. “I asked [the policeman] for the ordinance number [being violated], because they can’t put handcuffs on you if they cannot tell you why they’re detaining you. I said, ‘Show me where it’s illegal to do this.’ But he would not do it. The officer got mad and grabbed me. Then he told me that I was resisting arrest!”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In this part of the 21st century in this country, that this should even be happening is absoflippinglutely unbelievable.

Voting rights are an inalienable part of ALL of this country's citizens should be able to share, in having a say about the political leadership which represents them.

Nato Plans 'Spearhead' Force To Face Russia

Nato is set to create a high-readiness force and stockpile military equipment in Eastern Europe as a bulwark against potential Russian aggression, the alliance's chief has said.

Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said the proposed new force could be comprised of several thousand troops contributed to on a rotating basis by the 28 Nato countries.

Backed by air and naval assets, he said the unit would be a spearhead that could be deployed at very short notice to help Nato members defend themselves against any threat, including from Russia.

Nato leaders are to consider the plans at a summit this week in Wales that is likely to be dominated by how the US-led alliance should respond to the Russian-backed separatist uprising in eastern Ukraine.

Ukraine is not a member of Nato, but its UK ambassador told Sky News he backed the move and appealed for Ukraine's allies to step up sanctions and provide military help now.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The behaviour on the part of NATO, considering that Ukraine is not a part of NATO at this time, can only be characterized as very odd, in light of the fact that they are hyping the formation of a RRF (rapid reaction force)to come to Ukraine's aid against alleged Russian "aggression", when Russia has not been aggressive against Ukraine in the slightest, and that is what OCSE reports on the border have consistently indicated.

It appears that NATO and the US have decided to curtail Russia's economic growth with a war, and Ukraine is simply the excuse.

But were I Poroshenko, I would hesitate to necessarily hitch my geopolitical/economic/military wagon to NATO and the West.

IF past is prologue, he may want to examine the absolute flustercluck NATO and the US have created in Afghanistan, 13 years on, and wonder - very seriously - if what he has done will ultimately have been the right move for the future of his people.

Please, if you have already not done this, now is the time to take care of yourselves and those you care about. Get storable food, water, extra medications, and figure out how you will defend your home in a way with which you are both comfortable and educated.

Something wicked this way comes, and although I don't want to come across as Mrs. Chicken Little of Hawaii, 2014, preparation right now is critical.

I am very concerned about what I see as the US government marching to war against Russia. And unfortunately, just because an idea is the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing this government could possibly do right now, is absolutely no guarantee that they won't do it, and most probably before the mid-term elections....if, in fact, they are held, and we do not see a decree of martial law, to crush dissent against it.

VIDEO: Journalist Roughed Up And Removed From Georgia GOP Event

About 10 minutes later in the video, a hand aggressively blocked Tisdale's camera. The footage showed her being pushed out of the building and into an adjacent one. It was unclear who pushed her, but at some point a Dawson County sheriff's official appeared in the video.

Tisdale asked the official if she could get her purse to give him her identification.

"Nope, you're going to jail," the officer said in the video.

"I've been real nice, now you're going to jail for resisting arrest if you do not stop," the official said. By then, the sheriff's official had Tisdale with her hands behind her back pressed against a desk. He never identified himself in the video. Another man could be heard saying, "Will you please stop ma'am? We've asked you multiple times."

Totalitarian Collectivism

The New World Order has been in place for centuries. Is it not time to start calling the NWO by another name? A descriptive term that encapsulates the essence of the beast would be a Nefarious Warrior Organism. Such a phrase strips away the ridiculous notion that there is any order in the malevolent organization of the parasitic global structure, based upon perpetual and permanent warfare. This depiction more closely resembles reality, even if the master mass media refuses to acknowledge How the World Really Works. Discard any condemnation that criticism of the established order rests upon conspiratorial fantasy or pre-medieval prejudices. Explaining away or ignoring basic human nature in a "PC" culture ultimately requires the adoption of a depraved Totalitarian Collectivism system. - See more at: http://www.batr.org/totalitariancollectivism/090114.html#sthash.yP2udA...
