TPP signed: the ‘biggest global threat to the internet’ agreed, as campaigners warn that secret pact could bring huge new restrictions to the internet

“The TPP is likely to export some of the worst features of U.S. copyright law to Pacific Rim countries: a broad ban on breaking digital locks on devices and creative works (even for legal purposes), a minimum copyright term of the lifetime of the creator plus seventy years (the current international norm is the lifetime plus fifty years), privatization of enforcement for copyright infringement, ruinous statutory damages with no proof of actual harm, and government seizures of computers and equipment involved in alleged infringement,” wrote Katitza Rodriguez and Maira Sutton.

The changes could also lead to huge new rules about surveillance.

“Under this TPP proposal, Internet Service Providers could be required to "police" user activity (i.e. police YOU), take down internet content, and cut people off from internet access for common user-generated content,” write Expose The TPP, a campaign group opposing the agreement.

Text book publisher issues groveling apology to Texas mother who called them out for suggesting African people wilfully emigrated to America to 'work'

The publisher of a 9th-grade geography textbook has apologized for suggesting African people wilfully emigrated to America.

It comes after a mother in Texas read her son's homework and took to YouTube slamming McGraw-Hill Education for its use of language.

In a section titled 'patterns of immigration', the book describes slaves as 'workers' who came to the United States between 1500 and 1800 to work on agricultural plantations.

Secret Service Can't Keep Secrets

The U.S. Secret Service looks more like a rogue agency every day. Between agents partying with prostitutes, others drunkenly driving through White House gates and yet others leaving the mansion's front door unlocked, it's fair to wonder when they will "accidentally" kill someone.

Now we have yet another crazy revelation. Persons within the S.S., under congressional scrutiny for the above offenses and more, decided they would bring down the chief scrutinizer, Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah).

Trans-Pacific Partnership Deal Struck As "Corporate Secrecy" Wins Again

Once again the corporatocracy wins as the so-called "Trojan horse" Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement has been finalized. As WSJ reports, the U.S., Japan and 10 countries around the Pacific reached a historic accord Monday to lower trade barriers to goods and services and set commercial rules of the road for two-fifths of the global economy, officials said.

For the U.S., the TPP (reportedly) opens agricultural markets in Japan and Canada, tightens intellectual property rules to benefit drug and technology companies, and establishes a tightknit economic bloc to challenge China’s influence in the region (likely forcing their hand into separate trade agreements).

Woman accuses Carlsbad Police Department of brutality

A woman in Los Angeles is filing a claim against two Carlsbad Police officers, accusing them of brutality.

She says the officers attacked her after she complained about one of them. Local bystanders captured the encounter on cell phone video.

Cindy Hahn says that the encounter began when she saw a Carlsbad police officer standing by a car with its alarm going off.

"I said, 'what’s going on here?' And he said, 'is this your car?' I said 'no sir’ and he says 'then mind your (expletive) business,'" said Cindy Hahn.

Cindy then called the police department to complain about the officer's comment and shortly after she left, the officer she had complained about pulled her over.

"The next thing I know, I’m on the ground and he’s attacking me and then the other officer comes and I’m thinking he’s going to help me and he ratcheted it up," said Cindy.

Russian-made fighter jet harasses Turkish F-16s over Turkey’s Syrian border

The Russians haven't deployed Mig-29's to Syria!

A Russian-made MIG-29 fighter jet put two Turkish F-16 jets under radar lock on Turkish-Syrian border on Monday, the Turkish military has announced.

In a written statement issued on its website on Monday, the military said 10 F-16s scrambled to patrol the Turkish-Syrian border. During this mission, a MIG-29 placed two Turkish F-16s under radar lock for five minutes and 40 seconds. The military said it has not yet determined which country the MIG-29 belongs to.

Shameless FBI Director: "If this sounds a bit like a love letter to the ADL, it is, and rightly so"

I was doing some research yesterday and accidentally came across this bizarre speech from the FBI director giving a "a love letter to the ADL," as he called it, to the Anti-Defamation League. James Comey fawned: "Over the years, the partnership between the FBI and the ADL has grown stronger. Yes, we serve different functions, but we share common values and common goals. Your leadership in tracking and exposing domestic and international terrorist threats is invaluable. Your experience in hate crime prevention and investigations is essential. Your research has helped agents and analysts as they conduct threat assessments and prepare intelligence reports. If this sounds a bit like a love letter to the ADL, it is, and rightly so. Since 1913, you have advocated for fairness and equality. And, like you, we must always, always side with the good. That is why all new agents tour the Holocaust Museum... And we know why we must continue to stand together to stop those who would act against us.

Palestinians report more than 100 wounded after violent clashes erupt in West Bank

Violent clashes broke out Sunday morning across the West Bank between Palestinian youths and Israeli security forces.

Palestinians report that since the terrorist attacks in Jerusalem's Old City, in which Nehemia Lavie and Aharon Benita were killed and two were wounded, in addition to a separate attack that left a 15-year-old teen wounded, more than 100 Palestinians were wounded by gunfire and teargas in clashes with the army. Palestinians also report attacks by settlers. Demonstrators are protesting the Israel Police ban on non-resident Palestinians from entering the Old City.

Role Reversal in the New Cold War

This past weekend marks the twenty-fifth anniversary of the reunification of Germany, an event that formalized the end of the cold war. The so-called “German Democratic Republic,” one of the most repressive of the Soviet-imposed regimes established in the wake of World War II, was no more. It imploded without a shot being fired.

The largely bloodless revolution that swept across Eastern Europe, toppling Communist dictatorships from Berlin to Budapest, soon penetrated the epicenter of the “evil empire” itself – and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics evaporated like mist on a sunlit morning. It was the end of the cold war, and peoples all over the world breathed a joyful sigh of relief – and yet that joy was not shared by all.

Speaking today on NBC’s Meet the Press, Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump cautioned against further intervention in Syria, noting that the US largely has no idea who these rebels they’ve been funding and arming are, and predicting that Syria would go the way of Libya and Iraq, toward more chaos, if Assad was ousted.

US Plans To Escalate Syrian Airstrikes To"Hem In Russia"

Major Brain Disorder on the part of our fearless leader and his moronic minions in the Pentagon!
I have no doubt that if Odumbo puts USAF planes and pilots in harms way and interferes with the Russian AF there will be a smackdown by Putin!
This is very dangerous and provocative!

The new escalations involve throwing dramatically more weaponry at “pro-US” rebel factions, only this time having the Pentagon do it instead of the CIA, and also launching more airstrikes out of the Incirlik Air Base in Turkey.

Officials say the hope is that, with more American warplanes in the air over a wider chunk of ISIS territory, that would make less territory for Russian warplanes to operate in, effectively hemming them in and limiting their ability to strike ISIS themselves.

Oregon shooter: New details emerge about Chris Harper-Mercer

I smell a rat!

There are a number of indications that Harper-Mercer had mental health or behavioral issues. His screen name on some social media sites was "lithium love." Lithium is used as a psychiatric medication.

Harper-Mercer graduated from The Switzer Learning Center in 2009, according to a graduation listing in The Daily Breeze newspaper. Switzer Center is a private, nonprofit school in Torrance, California, geared for special education students with a range of issues from learning disabilities, health problems and autism or Asperger's Disorder, according to the school's website.

A neighbor told The New York Times that Harper-Mercer's mother had told a neighbor, "My son is dealing with some mental issues," and was intolerant of roaches that had infested the building.

Although Miller repeatedly asked Sgt.

A Marshall police officer later arrived at the scene and found Hedrick restraining the compliant elderly man on the ground.

Afghan Doctor Slaughter Pulls Back Curtain

On Dec. 26, 2009, a U.S. Special Operations team flew from Kabul to Ghazi Khan village in the Narang district of Kunar province. They attacked three houses, where they killed two adults and eight children. Seven of the children were handcuffed before they were shot. The youngest was 11 or 12, three more were 12, and one was 15. Both the United Nations and the Afghan government conducted investigations and confirmed all the details of the attack. U.S. officials conducted their own inquiry, but no report was published and no U.S. military or civilian officials were held accountable. Finally, more than five years later, a New York Times report on Joint Special Operations Command’s (JSOC) Seal Team 6 named it as the U.S. force involved. But JSOC operations are officially secret and, to all practical purposes, immune from accountability. As a senior U.S. officer told the Times, “JSOC investigates JSOC, that’s part of the problem.”

Trans-Pacific Partnership talks in Atlanta are continuing for a plenary session in an hour and a press conference is expected at 9am NZ time.

Staged ISIS Execution Video leaked by hackers

Published on Jul 12, 2015

A group of Russian hackers called Cyber Berkut have released a video showing a staged ISIS beheading, hacked from an electronic device from one of the staff of U.S. Senator John McCain. The fake ISIS execution appears to take place inside a film studio and shows a ‘prisoner’ (played by an actor) going through the motions of being ‘executed’ in front of several video cameras.

Another actor is dressed as an ISIS executioner who puts a knife to the throat of the prisoner and goes through the motions of cutting him.

FLASHBACK: British SAS Special Forces “Dressed Up as ISIS Rebels” Fighting Assad in Syria

On August 2, Britain’s Sunday Express newspaper headlined “SAS dress as ISIS fighters in undercover war on jihadis,” saying:

“More than 120 members belonging to the elite regiment are currently in the war-torn country” covertly “dressed in black and flying ISIS flags,” engaged in what’s called Operation Shader – attacking Syrian targets on the pretext of combatting ISIS.

Maybe covert US special forces and CIA elements are involved the same way. During Obama’s war on Libya, Britain deployed hundreds of Special Forces Support Group (SFSG) paratroopers – drawn from SAS (Special Air Service) and SBS (Special Boat Service) personnel.

Around 800 Royal Marines and 4,000 US counterparts were on standby to intervene on short notice if ordered.

Simply put, Hillary Clinton is as American as apple pie-induced diabetes, and this is why responsible Democrats will vote for her in the upcoming “Banker's Choice Awards” in November, 2016.

Alabama Makes Photo IDs Mandatory for Voting, Then Shutters DMV Offices in Black Counties

Some observers say that Alabama’s move to close dozens of drivers license offices is a discriminatory move that could trigger a civil rights probe.

Here’s why: in 2011 lawmakers approved a voter ID law requiring a government-issued ID to vote, and the 31 offices the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency set for closing—which the agency said was due to the $11 million cut in the new General Fund appropriation—will take a disproportionate hit on counties that are majority African-American.

Columnist John Archibald writes that “Alabama just took a giant step backward.”

“Every single county in which blacks make up more than 75 percent of registered voters will see their driver license office closed. Every one,” he continues, writing that the state “might as well just send an invitation to the Justice Department.”

The thorny issue of Jewish support for gun control has reared its head once more, this time in Washington State. The Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle has called for the resignation of Brian Judy, a National Rifle Association lobbyist who reportedly linked gun control to that untouchable icon of Jewish victimhood, the Holocaust. At a news conference at the Federation’s Seattle headquarters, President Keith Dvorchik said Judy should resign for connecting an anti-gun ballot initiative to policies pursued by Nazi Germany. Dvorchik further demanded the national office of the NRA “make clear that it rejects his ignorant and unproductive dialogue.”

Drugs hold up TPP as negotiations near end

The biggest free trade deal in a generation could be reached soon - but wrangling over next-generation drugs has held up progress.

Trade Minister Tim Groser is in Atlanta, with last hurdles in the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) including pharmaceutical patents and dairy import limits.

United States negotiators wanted a longer period of market exclusivity for new biological drugs, but that was resisted by Australia and other countries, who had concerns about health care costs.

More affordable versions of drugs are delayed by longer protection periods.

Trade ministers from 12 countries are negotiating the controversial pact, which would cut trade barriers and set common standards for 40 per cent of the world's economy.

Mr Groser was not available for interview as talks went overnight Atlanta-time, but was quoted by Reuters as saying the drugs impasse was holding up a deal in dairy products.

Now, I grant that no amount of body armor adequate to protect the uniquely vulnerable egos of police officers who are targeted for abuse and ridicule. This is why we are told that growing – and still woefully inadequate – public criticism of law enforcement is nothing less than a “war on police,” and that high-profile criticism of cops is akin to ISIS-caliber terrorism.

Jimmy Carter’s National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski admitted on CNN that the U.S. organized and supported Bin Laden and the other originators of “Al Qaeda” in the 1970s to fight the Soviets.

Brzezinski told Al Qaeda’s forefathers – the Mujahadin:

We know of their deep belief in god – that they’re confident that their struggle will succeed. That land over – there is yours – and you’ll go back to it some day, because your fight will prevail, and you’ll have your homes, your mosques, back again, because your cause is right, and god is on your side.

How The US Helped To Create Al Qaeda and ISIS

by Garikai Chengu

Much like Al Qaeda, the Islamic State (ISIS) is made-in-the-USA, an instrument of terror designed to divide and conquer the oil-rich Middle East and to counter Iran’s growing influence in the region.

The fact that the United States has a long and torrid history of backing terrorist groups will surprise only those who watch the news and ignore history.

Lest we forget, the CIA gave birth to Osama Bin Laden and breastfed his organization during the 1980?s. Former British Foreign Secretary, Robin Cook, told the House of Commons that Al Qaeda was unquestionably a product of Western intelligence agencies. Mr. Cook explained that Al Qaeda, which literally means an abbreviation of “the database” in Arabic, was originally the computer database of the thousands of Islamist extremists, who were trained by the CIA and funded by the Saudis, in order to defeat the Russians in Afghanistan.

Breakthrough on TPP deal

A Trans Pacific Partnership deal could be announced as soon as today if negotiators clear the final hurdles, including the biggest remaining one involving dairy import limits.

Prime Minister John Key left New York yesterday but Trade Minister Tim Groser remains in Atlanta at the talks, which were pushed back a day - a sign the agreement is verging on a breakthrough.

"I'm pretty optimistic it will come together [this weekend] - 80-20," said Alan Wolff, a former US negotiator who now leads the American National Foreign Trade Council, a commercial association.

Trade ministers from 12 countries are negotiating the controversial pact, which would cut trade barriers and set common standards for 40 per cent of the world's economy and be the biggest free-trade deal in a generation.

Talks began in 2010 but strong public opposition to the deal here centre on concerns about its impact, such as making pharmaceuticals more expensive.

Estimates are that 20 percent of all men serving in US prisons have been raped. This film looks at the social system within prisons that allows this violent sexual behavior to occur. At the start of the film, a black prisoner says "this is a world within a world. You've got everything under the sun here. You got homosexuality run rampant, you've got gambling, you've got gangs, you've got everything."

Loretta Lynch: government shouldn't require reports of people killed by police

Attorney general Loretta Lynch says the federal government should not require police to report fatal shootings of civilians, sharply diverging from her predecessor Eric Holder’s stance on police killings.

In a conversation with NBC journalist Chuck Todd on a range of criminal justice issues, Lynch said on Thursday that she does not support a federal mandate to report people killed by police.

“One of the things we are focusing on at the Department of Justice is not trying to reach down from Washington and dictate to every local department how they should handle the minutia of record keeping, but we are stressing to them that these records must be kept,” she said at the Washington Ideas Forum, hosted by AtlanticLIVE and the Aspen Institute.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, Madam Attorney General, but have you gone absolutely, barking mad to make such a statement, when so many African-Americans have been brutalized and killed by the police?!?

Yes, we need to create better community/police relationships; but that needs to be done hand in had with reporting fatal shootings of ALL civilians.

And your observation that "the small size of the average police department could make record-keeping difficult." is complete codswallop.

Madam Attorney General, these police departments are not tallying their numbers with an abacus; they are using computers, which makes the process more rapid, and efficient, than ever before.

To the families of every person illegally killed by a police officer, having made this statement, you do not appear at all to be on the side of American justice, which you have taken an oath to uphold; you appear to be in league with those who would rather cover this up, and erase it from America's collective memory.

That is truly unfortunate.

A police sergeant and an officer were finally fired 14 months after surveillance video caught the officer violently kneeing a handcuffed man. After rupturing the man’s spleen, the officers ignored his pleas for medical attention for nearly two hours while laughing at him off-camera and later lying to investigators regarding the incident.

On August 12, 2014, Robert Liese was arrested for a $60 bar tab that he was unable to pay. While loading Liese into his patrol car, Orlando police officer Peter Delio allegedly kicked the handcuffed man in the stomach. Upset and injured after Delio left him handcuffed inside a jail cell, Liese headbutted the glass window on his cell door.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So THIS is how Orland officers interpret the phrase "to protect and serve"?!?

The sadistic beating torture of a restrained man, by rupturing his spleen, is something that one would have expected from the STASI; the SAVAK; or the KGB; certainly NOT by an American policeman, but this has become a growing trend in this country.

Anyone planning a convention, or vacation time with the family, please pick another venue; going to Orlando can be very hazardous to your health. Residents of Orlando, please vote with your feet, and leave both the city and the state: the city, state, and police department no longer deserve your support, particularly in light of the fact that it took 14 months to bring these officers to justice.

One has to wonder if these men were trained by veterans of Abu Ghraib, or the IDF; unfortunately, the end result was the same.

As .01% face extinction: Scrooge, Darth Vader, Professor Snape offer advice to their minions

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

4-minute video of Darth Vader’s choice to serve love, family, and community rather than vicious psychopathic hatred:


For those involved in support of US government-sponsored disinformation and massive crimes that annually kill millions, harm billions, and loot trillions of the 99%’s dollars, I invite you to consider the quality of human relationships you wish to work for in creating your/our future.

National security and a brighter future is not a function of fear, manipulation, and psychopathic control. Our best security follows cooperation, justice under the law, dignity, and freedom. Surely you recognize that all promised natural rights in America are now gone, and the 99.99% are herded by the .01% as their work animals. The slaughter to which we are herded:

TPP on verge of breakthrough?

Talks by trade ministers involved in the Trans Pacific Partnership have been pushed out by a further day - a sign the agreement is on the verge of a breakthrough.

Prime Minister John Key leaves New York today while Trade Minister Tim Groser remains in Atlanta at the trade talks. Mr Key said those were due to end early this morning but had been pushed out to Saturday (Sunday NZT).

Mr Key said the deal would be worth it, but has recently been talking up the benefits of it non-dairy sectors and warning that it was not as favourable for dairy as other sectors.

"We model the tariff reductions, the change in quota access and all of the other ancillary benefits of free trade agreements. And we know in the case of China, the reduction in tariffs over a period of time were a bit over $100 million. And the other benefits were valued at over $1 billion. TPP is larger than that, even with the current dairy deal."

Peters hits back at Helen Clark's TPP comment

Former Prime Minister Helen Clark's comments that it would be "unthinkable" for New Zealand to be left out of the TPP apply only if the deal is a sound one, NZ First leader Winston Peters says.

"The real issue is that that statement is only correct if it is a good and favourable deal towards New Zealand's interests, and if it is not, it will be regrettable. At this point in time, none of us have the details to make that judgement," Mr Peters told the Herald.

"Journalists should have asked her when she made that statement for the qualifier. Because, surely, the qualifier had to be, 'providing it's a very sound, sustainable long term deal in the interests of New Zealand.'"

Ministerial talks to try and get the TPP trade deal signed off are continuing in Atlanta.
Clark met with Prime Minister John Key in New York on Thursday.

Nigeria's former oil minister Alison-Madueke arrested in London - sources

Nigeria's former oil minister Diezani Alison-Madueke was arrested in London on Friday, a source from Nigeria's presidency circle and another with links to her family said.

Alison-Madueke was minister from 2010 until May 2015 under former president Goodluck Jonathan, who was defeated by Muhammadu Buhari at the election in March.

Buhari took office in May promising to root out corruption in Africa's most populous nation where few benefit from the country's enormous energy resources.

A police spokesman in London said he had no record of such an arrest. The National Crime Agency did not immediately respond to a request for comment. In a short statement on its website, the NCA said its International Corruption Unit had arrested five people across London on suspicion of bribery and corruption offences on Friday, without naming the suspects.

TPP means 'ugly compromises'

Trade Minister Tim Groser says countries deeply immersed in TPP negotiations understand that dairy has to be resolved to New Zealand's satisfaction before a deal can be done.

"At least people understand that this has got to be done and they can't just ignore our small country because we are small," he told the Weekend Herald.

He also extended a goodwill gesture to Labour, saying he respected the fact it had not taken a position on TPP and that was "perfectly rational".

Mr Groser was speaking from Atlanta where ministers of the 12 countries involved in the Trans-Pacific Partnership have extended their meeting for another 24 hours.

He said he had spoken to Prime Minister John Key in New York several times over the past few hours.

And I've got highly confidential but very clear political guidelines from the Prime Minister about what I should be doing.

GOA Responds to the President on the Oregon Shooting-- Top Ten misstatements made by Obama

On October 1, 2015, the nation witnessed another tragic shooting -- this one at the Umpqua Community College in Oregon.

The President shortly took to a national platform to address the killings.

This should have been an opportunity for the President to unite a grieving nation. But instead, he chose to foment division. He even bragged that it was right for him to politicize this tragedy.

Over and over again, on nationwide television, the President misled the American people in an effort to further restrict the rights of law-abiding Americans who have done no wrong.

But to the President, we say: Shame on you, for leveling so many false accusations about guns and crime in America.

Here are the Top Ten misstatements he made during that nationwide address.

Roseberg Oregon Residents Say School Shooting Shows Why Citizens Must Be Armed

Once again the Gungrabbers misread the psychology of the Americans.

Residents in Roseberg, Oregon, are rallying around the Second Amendment in the wake of the heinous attack on Umpqua Community College (UCC), suggesting the attack itself is proof of why citizens need to be armed for self-defense.

According to the Associated Press, Roseberg is a mill town surrounded by hunting and fishing opportunities, and one where many residents say they do not leave home without a handgun for self-defense. They do not carry because crime is high, but because crime is low and they want to keep it that way.

Consequently, residents like J.C. Smith believe the attack at UCC was made possible by the fact that the school denied the exercise of Second Amendment rights to its students. Smith suggests that “barring people from carrying guns on campus made it particularly vulnerable to a ‘lone wolf’ attack” like the one witnessed Thursday.

The Anti-Russian Lying Machine in Action

Moscow’s campaign aims to defeat ISIS, eliminate its scourge. Washington actively supports it, striking Syrian targets exclusively, duplicitously claiming otherwise.

America’s declared war on ISIS is a complete fabrication. Russia’s is the real thing – why Obama administration officials are so alarmed about its justifiable intervention, supporting a regional ally in need, complying fully with international law.

A statement from the “Presidency of the Syrian Arab Republic” said “the sending of Russian air forces was carried out upon a request of the Syrian state conveyed via a letter sent by President Bashar al-Assad to President Vladimir Putin.”

Sergey Lavrov told reporters: “Do not listen to the Pentagon (propaganda) about Russian (air) strikes. Ask the Russian Defense Ministry.” Full information was made public.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Russia is now actually doing what the US government and military were, purportedly, doing, completely ineffectually, for the last 4 years; getting ISIS out of Syria.

Of course, from its inception, ISIS was created by American intelligence as the "boogeyman" to get Americans cowed into signing off on more military intervention in the Middle East and beyond.

With current revelations seeping into the collective American consciousness about how the US government supported terrorist movements in the Middle East to this end, I would politely suggest to the US government that this approach can not and will not, work.

When Shaker Aamer is free from Guantánamo the slurs will start: Clive Stafford Smith

My maternal grandmother once gave me some advice that has never left me: when someone does you wrong, bizarrely, they will invariably hate you for it. This stems from a very human desire not to admit mistakes. Therefore if you want to salvage a relationship with the person who wronged you, you must go out of your way to be kind to them.

I have discussed my grandmother’s advice with Shaker Aamer, the last British resident in Guantánamo Bay. He has been done a terrible wrong – held for almost 14 years without charges, tortured over and over. He has never met his youngest son Faris, who was born on the very day he arrived in the notorious US military base.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Character assassination, as a tool of shaping the public narrative,has been finely tuned by both the US and British intelligence agencies.

This is again, why, the Ministers of Propaganda in both countries can never, ever be taken at their word.

And please remember; some of those incarcerated at Gitmo, with out ever having been accused of a crime, or had a trial, will never be allowed to leave because water-boarding was not the worst thing done to them.

FLASHBACK: General Wesley Clark: Wars Were Planned - Seven Countries In Five Years

Lest we forget!

So I came back to see him a few weeks later, and by that time we were bombing in Afghanistan. I said, "Are we still going to war with Iraq?" And he said, "Oh, it's worse than that." He reached over on his desk. He picked up a piece of paper. And he said, "I just got this down from upstairs" -- meaning the Secretary of Defense's office -- "today." And he said, "This is a memo that describes how we're going to take out seven countries in five years, starting with Iraq, and then Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and, finishing off, Iran." I said, "Is it classified?" He said, "Yes, sir." I said, "Well, don't show it to me." And I saw him a year or so ago, and I said, "You remember that?" He said, "Sir, I didn't show you that memo! I didn't show it to you!"

The latest batch of Hillary Clinton emails released by the State Department this week show the federal government worked with CBS News to plant talking points into an interview with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.

In a January 2011 email to Clinton, Philip J. Crowley, then assistant secretary of state for public affairs, confirmed that he had successfully “planted” numerous “questions and concerns” with 60 minutes for their upcoming report on Wikileaks.

“I just received confirmation from 60 Minutes that a piece on Julian Assange will air Sunday night. He will be the only person featured…” Crowley wrote. “60 Minutes assures me that they raised a number of questions and concerns we planted with them during the course of the interview.”

Crowley went on to inform Clinton, who has railed against Assange since Wikileaks’ inception, that their collusion with 60 Minutes would prepare them for a response to “the narrative Assange presents during the program.”

“Our mujahideen have shot down a four-engine US aircraft in Jalalabad,” Taliban spokesperson Zabihullah Mujahid said on Twitter. “Based on credible information 15 invading forces and a number of puppet troops were killed,” he added.

CBS's "60 Minutes" used questions "planted" by the State Department in a 2011 interview with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, a State Department aide told Hillary Clinton in a newly released email.

"I just received confirmation from 60 Minutes that a piece on Julian Assange will air Sunday night," Philip Crowley, the assistant secretary of state for public affairs, wrote to Clinton in 2011. "He will be the only person featured. We had made a number of suggestions for outside experts and former diplomats to interview to 'balance' the piece. 60 Minutes assures me that they raised a number of questions and concerns we planted with them during the course of the interview.

UPDATED - Some Zionists Are Using Exaggerated Hysteria to Destroy Free Speech on UC Campus

There is something very disturbing going on with the University of California school systems that is more serious than over-inflated allegations of anti-Semitism and hate crimes on college campuses in California, and that is special interest bully pulpit attempt by some Jews to get regulations passed that outlaw any kind of speech that that basically rejects the Zionist project in Israel as a Jewish State. This is a very serious attack on free speech in one of America’s college systems. Trying to broaden the definition of anti-Semitism as “denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination and denying Israel the right to exist” is clearly political blackmail. For several years now various Jewish right-wing organizations and individuals have been waging a political battle against criticism of Israel and Zionism and now it is focusing more and more on American campuses.

Fox News Legal Analyst Predicts FBI Will Recommend Hillary Clinton be Indicted for National Security Crimes

According to the Associated Press:

“The Petraeus emails, first discovered by the Defense Department and then passed to the State Department’s inspector general challenge…Clinton’s claim that she has handed over the entirety of her work emails from the account.”

Appearing on Fox News’ “The Kelly File,” Judge Andrew Napolitano predicted Clinton’s defense, saying:

“She’s going to argue–because she stated…that she’s not a technical person, and she didn’t pay attention to emails, and she doesn’t understand exactly how the entire email system works–I’m afraid that’s not an argument that the judge wants to hear, and will essentially fall on deaf ears.”

Speaking to potential legal action, Napolitano added:

“I think that the FBI will recommend to the Justice Department that she be indicted.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I disagree. I predict the FBI will say they have found no evidence justifying criminal prosecution.

Baltimore cop shoots man armed with chapstick and warns his brother: ‘I’ve got a bullet for you, too’

A Baltimore police officer shot and wounded a man after he reached into his pocket to show the chapstick he was carrying.

John Rau was with his brother Monday night when he was stopped by police Major Byron Conaway, although the police department has not said why, reported WJZ-TV.

“All the guy said was, ‘What’s your name, sir?’ and I was like, ‘For what?’ and then he jumped out of the car with his gun and told me to put my hands up,” Rau said. “(The officer asked), ‘What you got in your hand?’ I had a cigarette in one hand, and I just put my hand in my pocket, because I was just putting chapstick on, and I said 10 times, ‘It’s chapstick, only chapstick, officer.”

Witnesses said the officer, who is black, shot the 40-year-old Rau, who is white, in the thigh when he reached into his pocket.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To all those who can in Baltimore, it is time you vote with your feet, and leave the city entirely; it is no longer worthy of your support, where cops can "go rogue" in a heartbeat,and what he did is considered standard operating procedure.

US Mistakenly Bombs Free Syrian Army, Obama Personally Approves Airstrikes

On Tuesday, The Daily Beast reported that America had bombed the Free Syrian Army in Syria, killing several members of the FSA, in a botched targeting of ISIS. Josh Rogin stated:

Since U.S. airstrikes against ISIS in Syria began on Sept. 22, there has been no coordination between the U.S. military and its alleged partners on the ground, according to FSA leaders, civilian opposition leaders, and intelligence sources who have been briefed on the U.S. and allied military operation.

Unfortunately for the Obama administration, President Obama has been directly tied to the targets picked in the Syrian campaign. Just a week and a half ago, the Wall Street Journal reported that Obama’s generals would not have the ability to approve targets – instead, the commander-in-chief would channel LBJ and pick the bombing sites:

With a new wave of U.S.-led airstrikes overnight in Syria, reporting from the ground inside the country show that in addition to the damage being done to Islamic State (or ISIS) targets and other militant factions, the civilian death toll is rapidly increasing.

According to the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, bombings on oil refineries held by ISIS in the northeast of Syria killed fourteen militants associated with the group, but also five civilians. In total, since the bombing of Syria began on Monday, SOHR estimates that of the 183 total killed by U.S. bombs, 36 were non-combatants, many of them women and children.

ISKENDERUN, Turkey — The little girl was home in northern Syria at around 8:30 on a recent summer night when the missile streaked down from the sky. Her uncle, 21-year-old Talha Amouri, was outside when the explosion ripped through the house, knocking him off his feet. He dug through the wreckage for hour after frantic hour, pulling out members of his family. He found five of his nieces — ages 8, 7, 6, 5, and 3 — dead. But the youngest, 2-year-old Nariman, clung to life, her arms locked around her mother, who had also survived. Nariman was rushed to a hospital across the nearby border with Turkey, in the seaside city of Iskenderun, where she now lies helpless beneath a web of tubes and bandages.

Hundreds of civilians killed in US-led air strikes on Isis targets – report

Pot! Kettle! Black!

The air campaign against Islamic State in Iraq and Syria has killed more than 450 civilians, according to a new report, even though the US-led coalition has so far acknowledged just two non-combatant deaths.

More than 5,700 air strikes have been launched in the campaign, which nears its first anniversary this Saturday, with its impact on civilians largely unknown.

Now Airwars, a project by a team of independent journalists, is publishing details of 52 strikes with what it believes are credible reports of at least 459 non-combatant deaths, including those of more than 100 children.

It says there is a “worrying gulf between public and coalition positions” on the campaign’s toll on civilians.

U.S. massive aid to Israel must stop: My Word

A Sept. 21 My Word column criticized a billboard by our organization announcing: "$10 million a day to Israel? Our money is needed in America!" ("Anti-Israel billboards mislead drivers").

The commentary was by Hava L. Holzhauer, the Florida regional director of the Anti-Defamation League, which frequently expends some of its nearly $100 million endowment advocating for Israel.

U.S. politicians from both parties have given more of our money to Israel than to any other nation, thanks to the multibillion-dollar pro-Israel lobby. In fact, the U.S. historically has given more aid to Israel than to all of sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America combined.

The Curse of American Exceptionalism

By Thomas DiLorenzo

October 1, 2015

Nothing seems to cause one of the neocon talking heads to fall into a rage more than discussing a politician or political candidate who “doesn’t believe in American exceptionalism!!” Sean Hannity seems especially unhinged under such circumstances. This is because “American exceptionalism” has long been the ideological underpinning of – and justification for –the American empire and all of its military adventures. As shills for the American military/industrial complex and the empire that it is forever expanding, Hannity, O’Reilly, Limbaugh, and all the rest are required by their masters to express outrage – outrage! – whenever anyone questions the propriety of American imperialism and empire building........

From the moment the first Russian warplanes started launching attacks inside Syria, a new campaign in the information war was also launched, with various groups trying to get their stamps on conflicting stories about what exactly Russia attacked, whether they hit ISIS, ISIS allies, pro-US rebels, or just random Syrian civilians.

At the center of one of the bigger controversies was the “White Helmets” organization. Formerly known as the Syria Civil Defense, the group is heavily funded by the US State Department, and while the group claims to be purely an aid group, and not to be taking any side in the war, their statements overwhelmingly tow the official US line,

Why The “War on Police” Is A Complete Sham

Every time a police officer is killed, they will talk about the incident for days on end. In fact, they’ve had more stories on police deaths this year than the previous 4 years combined. Other news stations like ABC and CBS have similar numbers. Meanwhile, the number of police officers who are actually killed on a yearly basis is plummeting.

Obama, Pope, UN: con artists together

“In March, Mr. Obama submitted a plan to the United Nations detailing how the United States would meet its target [on reducing global warming]. It said it would do so chiefly through enactment of Environmental Protection Agency regulations on emissions from cars, trucks and power plants.” (New York Times, “Global Climate Pact Gains Momentum as China, U.S. and Brazil Detail Plans,” 6/30/15) -- Translation of the above quote: Obama will bypass Congress and make global warming decisions for the future of America through executive fiat.

Monsanto ‘Deliberately Covered Up Data’ Proving Glyphosate is Cancerous for 4 Decades

What will it take to shut down Monsanto’s doors irrevocably? Likely it will be the same type of lawsuit that finally pulled the shades on the tobacco industry. If Big Tobacco eventually had to pay a $206 billion settlement over 25 years for lying about the health impacts of cigarettes, what do you think Monsanto will have to pay for lying about glyphosate’s carcinogenic nature for almost 40 years?

“Going After” the Islamic State. Guess Who is Behind the Caliphate Project?

Author’s note and Update

The following article was first published in September 2014 at the outset of the air campaign “against the ISIS”. In recent developments Russia has officially joined the campaign against the Islamic State (ISIS). What are the implications?

Amply documented but rarely mentioned in news reports, the ISIS is a creation of US intelligence, recruited, trained and financed by the US and its allies including Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Turkey, Israel and Jordan.

What this means is that the ISIS terrorists are the foot soldiers of the Western alliance. While America claims to be targeting the ISIS, in reality it is protecting the ISIS. The air campaign is intent upon destroying Syria and Iraq rather than “going after the terrorists”.

But now Russia is involved in the campaign against the ISIS in coordination with the Syrian and Iraqi governments.

New Patch for U.S. Troops Fighting ISIS… Looks Like ISIS Logo

Believe it or not, American soldiers fighting against ISIS in Syria and Iraq will actually be wearing the emblem of ISIS – the infamous crossed-swords logo. Well, almost.

Controversy has stirred because many think the patch looks too much like our boys are fighting for the enemy… just another sign of confusion about the counterproductive Obama-led war against the notorious and shamefully exploitative jihadist army.

The Military Times noted that:

“A combat patch worn by U.S. soldiers who served in Iraq on the mission against Islamic State is drawing flak from service members and veterans who say the patch — with its palm wreath, stars and crossed scimitars — looks like something the enemy would wear.”

Judge concerned Univ. of Illinois may destroy Steven Salaita evidence

A federal judge has ordered the University of Illinois to preserve all evidence related to the Steven Salaita case.

In a ruling issued Tuesday, US District Judge Harry Leinenweber cited evidence presented by Salaita’s lawyers that the university had “attempted to destroy or hide communications regarding this case and that defendants had flouted known disclosure obligations in the past.”

In light of this information, the judge wrote that he had “concerns” about whether the university would comply with obligations currently in place to protect evidence.

Are pro-Israel bullies on US campuses planning dirtier tactics?

A member of the University of California’s governing body has called for the expulsion or suspension of students for expressing their views about Israel, under the guise of combating anti-Jewish bigotry.

This comes as Israel lobby groups, flush with huge new injections of cash, are stepping up their efforts to silence the Palestine solidarity movement on campuses nationwide.

During a 17 September meeting of the University of California (UC) Regents to discuss a “statement of principles against intolerance,” Richard Blum also threatened to have his wife, US Senator Dianne Feinstein, publicly criticize the university if it did not enforce penalties against perceived bigotry.

Feinstein’s criticism could put the university system under federal scrutiny.

Obama Deifies American Hegemony — Paul Craig Roberts

When Assad drops bombs it oppresses people, but when Washington drops bombs it liberates them. Obama justified Washington’s violence as liberation from “dictators,” such as Assad in Syria, who garnered 80% of the vote in the last election, a vote of confidence that Obama never received and never will.

Mark Dice’s latest ‘man on the street’ stunt once again illustrates how people are completely ignorant of their constitutional right to free speech under the First Amendment.

“We don’t really need people talking about politics or religion out in public,” Dice tells one man who signs the petition before responding, “Yeah we need to chill.”

“We’re just trying to mute people’s political and religious speech,” says Dice as the man’s partner signs the petition.

An older man whose father possibly fought in the Second World War to defend the freedoms that Americans should hold dear also signs the petition while agreeing that the First Amendment wasn’t designed to allow people to express political views in public.

“Right, cause it’s going to lead to a confrontation – always does,” he states.

Apple Suddenly Banned an App That Maps U.S. Drone Strikes

Freelance journalist and data artist Josh Begley has been methodically recording U.S. military drone activity for years. Every week or so — whenever the strikes occur — Begley will post a news story from the @dronestream Twitter account, identifying when and where drone strikes have occurred before feeding the results into an app called Metadata+.

‘Surveillance bill in disguise’ might make a Senate comeback this week

As Congress scurries to avoid another government shutdown, lawmakers may be ready to once again bring up a controversial information-sharing bill for consideration this week, which critics dubbed “a surveillance bill masquerading as a cybersecurity bill.”

According to a report by Politico, confusion reigns at the Senate as Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky) mulls over the chamber’s upcoming schedule. One unidentified source told the outlet that it was “likely” McConnell paves the way for a reintroduction of the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA), but others said the situation was still “very uncertain.”

If passed into law, the bill would give companies greater liability protection when it comes to collecting personal data that could potentially be related to security threats. It would also allow them to share that information with government departments such as the National Security Agency.

The Big Secret That Makes the FBI’s Anti-Encryption Campaign a Big Lie

To hear FBI Director James Comey tell it, strong encryption stops law enforcement dead in its tracks by letting terrorists, kidnappers and rapists communicate in complete secrecy.

But that’s just not true.

In the rare cases in which an investigation may initially appear to be blocked by encryption — and so far, the FBI has yet to identify a single one — the government has a Plan B: it’s called hacking.

Hacking — just like kicking down a door and looking through someone’s stuff — is a perfectly legal tactic for law enforcement officers, provided they have a warrant.

The Dahiya Doctrine: State Terrorism and a Philosophy of War Crime

What Is the Dahiya Doctrine?

In the 2006 Lebanon War, Israel Defense Force Northern Commander Gadi Eisenkot, now the deputy chief of general staff, recommended and had approved the application of a military strategy that would target and destroy an entire civilian area rather than fight to overtake fortified positions one by one. This was in an effort to minimize IDF casualties while at the same time holding the entire civilian populace accountable for the actions of a few. A move some called revolutionary in modern warfare, the doctrine did away with the effort to distinguish between militant and civilian, using an overwhelming display of force through airstrikes to destroy the entire Lebanese Dahiya quarter.

The strategy itself calls for the deliberate targeting of civilians and civilian infrastructure in order to induce suffering and severe distress throughout the targeted population.

Neocon Jeffrey Feltman Visits Libya Brandishing The Dahiyeh Doctrine and “The New Realities”

The “Dahiyeh Doctrine”

Libyan civilians have learned a thing or two from three decades of Lebanon’s experience with Israel’s five wars against that Levant country. Indeed NATO is using the same bombing, media, political and diplomatic strategy in Libya that Israel employed most recently in Lebanon during its 33-day July, 2006 war.

This includes bombing of the Libyan civilian infrastructure in order to cripple normal life here and hopefully crush the growing national Resistance among Libyans to NATO’s 15,300 sorties to date, while teaching the people an overdue lesson for supporting the central government in the context of predictable “birth pangs of the new Libya.”

Washington prepares heightened aggression against Damascus and Moscow
29 September 2015

Addressing the United Nations General Assembly on Monday, President Barack Obama portrayed himself and the US government as the preeminent defenders of international law and diplomacy. He did so even as the catastrophic consequences of the illegal wars of aggression he has overseen continued to send waves of refugees fleeing the ruins of entire countries—including Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria and Yemen—and as Washington took new steps to turn Eastern Europe into a militarized zone for eventual war against Russia.

With his trademark hypocrisy and contempt for the intelligence of his audience, Obama hailed “an international system that imposes a cost on those who choose conflict over cooperation.”

The Mystery Of Hillary’s Missing Millions

Since Bill and Hillary Clinton left the White House in 2001, they have earned more than $230 million. But in federal filings the Clintons claim they are worth somewhere between $11 million and $53 million. After layering years of disclosures on top of annual tax returns, Forbes estimates their combined net worth at $45 million. Where did all of the money go? No one seems to know, and the Clintons aren’t offering any answers.
