Stairway to Tyranny

If a government can expand their power over the governed with such as The Patriot Act, National Defense Authorization Act, Department of Homeland Security, ,Federal Emergency Management Agency…there’s Dr. Kissinger’s aphrodisia—the Psychopathic Power Rush (PPR).

Heroin, power, cocaine, methamphetamine…“hard” drugs demand ever-increasing doses to keep the rush satisfying. Regarding the PPR, all questions lead to: How brutally can government tyrannize, how far can they push before sufficient numbers of the governed realize whose interests government actually serves? The governed are, at the very best, unsecured creditors, last in line. Banks, that’s whose interests are not only at the front of the line, banks own the line. Very little trickles past banks to serve interests behind theirs because government works for those who have a monopoly on creating “money” from nothing.

Americans at Risk: Obama Is Destroying America’s Ability to Win World War III

In our post-Vietnam era, America vowed to never under appreciate the sacrifices that the men and women in uniform make whose service keeps us safe. However, the nation’s undying gratitude seems to be evaporating. Since Obama has become President, the military has suffered through several years of staggering cuts in funding and tens of thousands of military personnel have been shown the door. Many of these cuts are being visited upon military personnel who were near retirement. After 13 years of being embroiled in war, many soldiers feel that that military has been set adrift and lost all direction and purpose. Upon further examination, it is clear that Obama’s mission with regard to our military is to dismantle and destroy its fighting effectiveness, bit by bit.

Disneyland says unvaccinated kids not welcome amid measles outbreak

Disneyland is urging the parents of children who are not vaccinated against measles to stay away from the theme park because of the risk from California’s outbreak of the disease.

Park officials issued the warning on Wednesday after state health officials said newborns, who cannot be vaccinated because they are under six months of age, should be kept away from the resort.

The recommendations fuelled a backlash against an anti-vaccination movement facing blame for the outbreak, which has infected at least 70 people in recent weeks, most in California.

"Government Is Waging A Perpetual War Against Human Nature... They Can Never Win"

Government has NEVER accepted the economy or free markets. They assume they have the ability and the right to manipulate society. They have failed each and every time. They cannot just recognize the natural order of things driven by human nature (character). They constantly work against the business cycle and attempt to change what cannot be changed. Therein, they are engaging in a perpetual war they can never win.

Hedge funds gave Mugabe $100M for genocide, got platinum mines in return

Zimbabwe's dictator Robert Mugabe unleashed a storm of brutal, genocidal violence after losing the 2008 elections -- and now we know that it was funded by western hedge-funds and banks, led by Och-Ziff Capital Management, the largest publicly traded fund, with assistance from Blackrock, GLG Partners, and Credit Suisse, who raised $100M for Mugabe's weapons and torture-chambers in exchange for a sweetheart deal on the country's platinum mines.

Citations, vehicle impoundment cases tied to Uber concluded

The Nevada Transportation Authority on Thursday wrapped up the adjudication of 24 citations and vehicle impoundment cases connected to the illegal operation of the Uber ride-sharing app.

At the authority board’s monthly meeting, the three members unanimously approved in one vote the findings of hearing officers that reviewed each case.

The 24 cases involving Uber drivers and their vehicles was nearly half of the month’s cases involving unlicensed drivers offering motor transport in violation of state statutes.

Uber officials, who directed operations in Las Vegas, Reno and Carson City between Oct. 23 and Nov. 26, believe the company should not be subject to transportation regulations because it considers itself a technology company that arranges rides through a smartphone app and are not the transporters.

Regulators think otherwise.

Journalist Barrett Brown Sentenced to 63 Months in Prison; Read his Speech Here

Justin King
Activist Post

Persecuted journalist Barrett Brown plans to use his opportunity to address the court at his sentencing to continue to defend his colleagues that are also being persecuted. The government extorted a guilty plea from him by threatening 105 years in prison: he’s currently facing around eight. All indications are that he signed a non-cooperating plea deal in which he admits only his role.

As Barrett Brown joins the ranks of America’s other political prisoners, the American people need to review his words and ask themselves if this is actually the government they want. Do they want to live in a society where journalists are targeted by federal agents simply because they revealed the truth? A society where the government exercises so much control over the corporate media, that the fifth estate remains silent, while one of their own is carted off to prison?

There isn’t much that can be added to Brown’s statement...

The Dire State of Our Nation (What You Won’t Hear from the Politicians) By John W. Whitehead

snip: Americans can no longer rely on the courts to mete out justice. The courts were established to intervene and protect the people against the government and its agents when they overstep their bounds. Yet the courts increasingly march in lockstep with the police state, while concerned themselves primarily with advancing the government’s agenda, no matter how unjust or illegal.

Americans have no protection against police abuse. It is no longer unusual to hear about incidents in which police shoot unarmed individuals first and ask questions later. What is increasingly common, however, is the news that the officers involved in these incidents get off with little more than a slap on the hands.

If there is any absolute maxim by which the federal government seems to operate, it is that the American taxpayer always gets ripped off. This is true, whether you’re talking about taxpayers being forced to fund high-priced weaponry that will be used against us, endless wars that do little for our safety or our freedoms, or bloated government agencies such as the National Security Agency with its secret budgets, covert agendas and clandestine activities. Rubbing salt in the wound, even monetary awards in lawsuits against government officials who are found guilty of wrongdoing are paid by the taxpayer.

Americans are powerless in the face of militarized police. In early America, government agents were not permitted to enter one’s home without permission or in a deceitful manner. And citizens could resist arrest when a police officer tried to restrain them without proper justification or a warrant. Daring to dispute a warrant with a police official today who is armed with high-tech military weapons would be nothing short of suicidal. Moreover, as police forces across the country continue to be transformed into extensions of the military, Americans are finding their once-peaceful communities transformed into military outposts, complete with tanks, weaponry, and other equipment designed for the battlefield.

The Intimidation of Greek Voters - Punishment and Regressive Social Engineering by the EU

Here we go again. There is talk of Greece exiting the euro, and the German government has tried to say that it would be no big deal for Europe, then apparently walked back from that position. At the same time, the German government appears to be trying to influence the Greek election scheduled for January 25 by saying that if the left party Syriza wins, a Greek exit will follow. Syriza, led by the popular and charismatic Alexis Tsipras, is not threatening to leave the euro but promises to renegotiate Greece’s unsustainable debt. Syriza also calls for reversing Greece’s devastating austerity policies, imposed by the European authorities, which have brought the country 6 years of depression and more than 25 percent unemployment.

Baseless Accusations of Russian Troops in Ukraine by Stephen Lendman

snip: In his State of the Union address, Obama accused Russia of "aggression" in Ukraine.

Earlier he said it's "provable" that "Russian combat forces and tanks" moved into Ukraine. "(W)ith Russian weapons and Russian tanks."

"(T)hese are the facts. They are provable. They're not subject to dispute." No proof whatever was presented. Not earlier. Not now. Now exists.

No Russian combat troops operate in Ukraine. Nor is Moscow supplying Donbas freedom fighters with weapons.

Israeli State Terror the Root Cause of Palestinian Blowback by Stephen Lendman

snip: Lone wolf Palestinian retaliatory attacks followed Operation Protective Edge. Israeli state terror.

Cold, calculated, premeditated aggression. Murdering over 2,200 Palestinians. Injuring another 11,000.

Many maimed for life. Thousands of Gazan children survivors traumatized. Many lost both parents.

Dozens of Palestinian families were slaughtered entirely. Around 80% of Gazan casualties were noncombatant men, women, children, infants and the disabled.

Israel considers them legitimated targets. In gross violation of fundamental international law.

Palestinians are automatically called terrorists. In violent incidents involving them and Jews.

Even when Israeli security forces initiate attacks. Israel calls state terrorism self-defense. Legitimate Palestinian resistance is called terrorism.

America's Abysmal State by Stephen Lendman

snip: Democracy is a convenient illusion. Money-controlled duopoly power runs things. Popular interests go begging.

Wars on humanity continue. Expect more of the same ahead. Obama's claim about "respect(ing) human dignity" flies in the face of reality.

So is his Big Lie about "prohibit(ing) torture…" It continues on his watch. At US global black sites. Out of sight and mind.

Guantanamo the ugly tip of the iceberg. A previous article called it a symbol of America's depravity.

"…I've…ma(de) sure our use of new technology like drones is properly constrained," said Obama.

Drone killings on his watch exceed all his predecessors combined. The vast majority of victims are noncombatant civilians. Murdered in cold blood.

No "constraints" whatever exist. State terrorism is official US policy. War on humanity persists. Threatening to destroy it altogether.

We’ve Let The Clowns Come Way Too Far

In Tuesday’s State of the Union, Obama said The ‘Shadow Of Crisis Has Passed’, and the one and the only thing I thought was: ‘Good, so now we can tackle the crisis itself?!’. If speeches like the SOTU Tuesday night, and the reactions to it, make anything clear, it’s that the PR guys won the fight against critical thinking. Sure, there are people for whom that shadow has passed, but a president is supposed to be there for all Americans, not just for those who finance his campaigns and those of his successors.

How Obama's Hacking Laws Could Make You a Criminal

Computer-security researchers fear President Barack Obama’s proposed changes to federal hacking laws could put them out of business, could make computers less secure overall, and could put some of them — and maybe even you — in prison.

"Under the new proposal, sharing your HBO GO password with a friend would be a felony," Nate Cardozo, an attorney with the Electronic Frontier Foundation in San Francisco, told an audience of researchers and IT pros Saturday (Jan. 17) at ShmooCon 2015, a security conference held annually in Washington, D.C.

Obama showcased the proposals in his State of the Union address Wednesday night (Jan. 20). The changes to the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA), first implemented in 1984, might make many commonplace security-research practices — and media reporting on those practices — federal crimes. Even sharing passwords for online accounts would potentially be punishable.

The Hidden Threat To Free Speech in Obama’s State of the Union Address

President Obama proposed new laws to protect Americans and “especially our kids” from hackers during his State of the Union address. Swaddled in that almost tender-sounding language, though, was a plan that would strengthen the government’s ability to go after journalists like Barrett Brown.

In fact, the new cybersecurity legislation would further criminalize the kind of activity for which Brown is due to be sentenced in Dallas federal court on Jan. 22. Judge Sam A. Lindsay will decide whether to let Brown, 33, off with time served for the more than two years he’s already spent behind bars, or imprison him for a maximum of eight-and-a-half years. Brown struck a deal to plead guilty to, among other charges, a Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) felony.

Asset Ownership and Our System of Deepening Debt-Serfdom

Debt-serfs who make the difficult and risky transition to small-scale business owners find they have simply moved to another class of serfdom.

The core dynamic of debt-serfdom is that debt-serfs must borrow money to buy essentials while the wealthy borrow to invest in productive assets.

This is not merely a random result of free-market capitalism; it is the structure of cartel-capitalism in which highly profitable goods and services must be paid for with highly profitable debt.

Freedom of Speech? Boston Mayor Bans Bad Mouthing of Olympics, as Facebook Will Filter Out “Fake News”

If you’re a Boston city employee, there’s now an official decree: don’t badmouth the Olympics.

Documents obtained by the Globe through a public records request to City Hall show Mayor Martin J. Walsh has signed a formal agreement with the United States Olympic Committee that bans city employees from criticizing Boston’s bid for the 2024 Summer Games.

The “joinder agreement” forbids the city of Boston and its employees from making any written or oral statements that “reflect unfavorably upon, denigrate or disparage, or are detrimental to the reputation” of the International Olympic Committee, the USOC, or the Olympic Games.

So supporting the Olympics is now a matter of national security. How cute.

European Commission's Clever Ruse To Introduce Corporate Sovereignty Regardless Of Ratification Votes In EU

Because of the complicated nature of power-sharing in the European Union, some international agreements require the approval of both the European Parliament and of every Member State -- so-called "mixed agreements." It is generally accepted that both the Canada-EU trade agreement (CETA) and TAFTA/TTIP are mixed agreements, and will therefore require a double ratification: by the full European Parliament, and all the EU governments. Indeed, the European Commission has frequently cited this fact to bolster its assertion that both CETA and TAFTA/TTIP are being negotiated democratically, since the European public -- through their representatives -- will have their say in these final votes.

San Diego County, another jurisdiction, has fought efforts by citizens to obtain access to data that law enforcement has collected on them using ALPRs. Both claim that the records are exempted under the California Public Records Act because they are records of law enforcement investigations. The agencies also argue the public interest in maintaining secrecy in ALPR data outweighs the public interest in learning how and where ALPR systems are being used.

Obama Has Sentenced Whistleblowers to 10x the Jail Time of All Prior U.S. Presidents Combined

Since Obama’s time in office, those prosecuted include Thomas Drake and Shamai Leibowitz in 2010, Chelsea Manning, John Kiriakou, and Donal Sachtleben in 2013, and Stephen Kim in 2014. The cases of Jeffrey Sterling and Edward Snowden are currently pending.

In addition to increasing the number of journalists indicted, Obama has also increased the price each one is forced to pay.

According to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), due to press freedom concerns, “sentencing in media leak cases has historically been relatively light,” with only 24 months of jail time for the three whistleblowers prosecuted from 1973 to 2005.

However, ACLU noted that Obama has “secured 526 months of prison time for national security leakers,” with the majority given to Chelsea Manning, who was sentenced to 35 years.

I was still a bit excited about our success with the video and eager, should the opportunity arise, to share it with anyone I thought might be interested. The WiFi worked quite well generally, but when I attempted to view “Falling to Pieces for Israel,” I was greeted with this message: “This video is not available in your country.” At no time when I was in France was I able to see it.

Here's What Concerns Experts About Obama's State of the Union Cybersecurity Goals

Central to the problems with the recommended updates to the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA) are vague terms that could easily be interpreted to prosecute innocents, no matter how weak their links to actual criminal activity. Anyone who "intentionally exceeds authorized access to a protected computer, and thereby obtains information from such computer" could be charged. That sounds acceptable on first inspection, but the definition of "exceeds authorized access" includes using a computer with proper authorization "to obtain or alter information" the relevant party is not entitled to look at, "or for a purpose that the accesser knows is not authorized by the computer owner".

The Pseudo-Courage of Chris Kyle

The insurgents who fought the American invasion (and the few “allied” troops representing governments that had been bribed or brow-beaten into collaborating in that crime) were sub-human “savages” and “cowards,” according to Kyle.

“Savage, despicable evil,” writes Kyle. “That’s what we were fighting in Iraq…. People ask me all the time, `How many people have you killed?’... The number is not important to me. I only wish I had killed more. Not for bragging rights, but because I believe the world is a better place without savages out there taking American lives.”

Israeli forces launch major detention campaign in Nablus camps

Israeli forces launched a major detention campaign in the northern West Bank refugee camps of Balata and Askar in Nablus district overnight, Palestinian security sources said.

More than 15 young men were seized after forces ransacked many houses.

Palestinian security sources told Ma’an that more than 20 Israeli military jeeps stormed Balata and Askar refugee camps near Nablus at midnight and broke into dozens of houses.

Locals said most of the houses belonged to Fatah supporters. Among those whose houses which were ransacked are Fayiz Arafat, Nasser al-Khatib Abu Aziz, Ahmad Naji Abu Hamada, Muhammad Abu Dari, Abu Mahyub abu Leil, Muhammad Abu Zaabal, Hatim abu Riziq, Talal abu Thira, Abu Hazim Kharma, Atallah Hashash, Bashir Hashash, Hasan Sharaya, Abu Nasim Arayshi and Mahir Ayyad.

The GOVERNMENT Intends to CONFISCATE EVERYTHING YOU OWN!

When a small group of people subvert the laws that make everyone equal and place themselves above the law, it is only a matter of time before freedom becomes forced servitude.

The actions by the U.S. government are giving the tell tale signs of complete destruction of liberty and the institution of what can only be called slavery of the masses.

Those at the top are engaged in the transformation of the nation into a feudal society where a few are very rich and the rest are subjected to poverty and earning a meager existence at best.

Campus cops load up on military weapons like semiautomatic rifles, Humvees

Under the same program that has been criticized as “militarizing” local law enforcement, campus police departments have ramped up their armed presence, with Florida State University getting a Humvee and other university officers carrying semi-automatic rifles.

Nearly all police at universities are now armed, with weapons ranging from handguns to pepper spray. About two-thirds of public and private campuses employed armed officials during the 2011-2012 school year, according to a Bureau of Justice Statistics report released Tuesday.

Nick Turse, A Shadow War in 150 Countries

From the point of view of the U.S. military and the national security state, the period from September 12, 2001, to late last night could be summed up in a single word: more. What Washington funded with your tax dollars was a bacchanalia of expansion intended, as is endlessly reiterated, to keep America “safe.” But here’s the odd thing: as the structure of what’s always called “security” is built out ever further into our world and our lives, that world only seems to become less secure. Odder yet, that “more” is rarely a focus of media coverage, though its reality is glaringly obvious. The details may get coverage but the larger reality -- the thing being created in Washington -- seems of remarkably little interest.

ARMS TO AL-QAEDA: U.S. Generals Admit Washington Has Backed Islamic Militants in Syria

If you believe all of the pre-packaged government and corporate media propaganda, then you might think that ISIS is just another evil, grassroots Salafist militant movement, one with no connections at all to foreign intelligence agencies like the CIA, Britain’s MI6, Turkish (NATO) intelligence, Saudi intelligence, Israeli intelligence, or Pakistan’s ISI.

Well, you might just be wrong…

Is Barack Obama Actually Trying To Help ISIS Take Over Syria?

That headline sounds crazy, right? It must be untrue, right? Well, read on, because you might be absolutely shocked by what you learn. As you will read about below, the Obama administration has used al-Qaeda fighters and other radical Islamic groups in the past to topple governments. And without a doubt, Barack Obama is absolutely determined to oust Syrian president Bashar al-Assad. In fact, he came dangerously close to taking us to war with Syria earlier in his presidency before backing down in the face of overwhelming public pressure. But what Obama wants to do in Syria has not changed, and he is using the same playbook that he used in Libya and elsewhere to get it done.

Boehner invites Israeli PM Netanyahu to address Congress

House Speaker John A. Boehner said Wednesday he’s invited Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to speak to a joint session of Congress in February.

“In this time of challenge, I am asking the prime minister to address Congress on the grave threats radical Islam and Iran pose to our security and way of life,” Mr. Boehner said. “Americans and Israelis have always stood together in shared cause and common ideals, and now we must rise to the moment again.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The last time Netanyahu spoke to Congress, members of AIPAC videotaped the assembly, and anyone not standing and cheering at everything Netanyahu said were cut off from future AIPAC support.

None of this was spelled out by the veteran correspondent, who deleted his twitter account shortly afterwards and according to this source does not appear to be willing to elaborate beyond his immediate resignation, but a string of tweets between him and a well known israeli propagandist show Clancy’s obvious impatience with what he clearly sees as crass israeli attempts to use PR to derail Palestinian efforts at self-determination. The fact that it comes immediately after his tweet about Hebdo remains a mystery.

Financial Repression Is Financial Authoritarianism

Financial repression is a term used to describe measures sometimes used by governments to boost their coffers and/or reduce debt. These measures include the deliberate attempt to hold down interest rates to below inflation, representing a tax on savers and a transfer of benefits from lenders to borrowers. Financial repression is also used to describe measures to facilitate a domestic market for government debt and the imposition of capital controls. The combined effect of all these measures means funds are channeled to the government that would otherwise flow elsewhere.

Israel’s very own history of eugenics

In the 1950s, waves of new immigrants swept into Israel. To the dismay of the country’s Ashkenazi leaders (those originating from Europe and the US), the great majority were from Arab countries. Levi Eshkol, a later prime minister, expressed a common sentiment when he called them “human rubbish”. Israel, deprived of “good-quality” Jews, was being forced to bring to its shores Arab Jews, seen as just as primitive and dirty as the Palestinians whom Israel had recently succeeded in ethnically cleansing.

Experts have said that the U.S. and Europe cannot survive for much longer, and with Russia’s economic surplus, its looking likely that the Ruble will out-live the dollar.

FDA Attacks Man for Selling Supplement that has Healed Tens of Thousands – Facing 37 Years in Prison

For almost 5 years, the FDA has been attacking Daniel Smith of Spokane Washington for selling a mineral supplement that purifies water and has been used in places like Africa by the Red Cross to prevent Malaria. The product is called MMS (Miracle Mineral Solution), and the active ingredient is sodium chlorite, a common mineral that is even used in some municipalities in the U.S. to purify water instead of chlorine.

Daniel Smith will face a trial in less than 30 days, the culmination of close to 5 years of legal battles, that could result in him spending 37 years in prison if convicted.

Why?

Because the FDA has not approved his product for health claims.

Has the product killed anyone? No.

Do FDA approved products kill anyone? Yes.

According to statistics published by medical authorities themselves, FDA prescription drugs are one of the top causes of death in the United States, and probably the #1 cause of death among Americans today.

Sky to block pornography by default to protect children

Broadband provider Sky will block adult content by default, unless users opt out, it has revealed.

The decision was announced in a blog post and will be phased in over coming weeks.

In 2013 Prime Minister David Cameron put pressure on internet service provider [ISPs] to make online filtering mandatory, saying it was the best way to protect children.

His request caused controversy among politicians and the internet industry.

Since then most of the UK's ISPs have offered filtering software for parents concerned about what their children may be able to access online but few have offered this by default, opting instead to allow parents or other customers to turn the filters on if they want them.

Now that DailyPaul.com Is Closing, Time to come clean: I was Banned in '09, & A Brief Discussion of Squirrely So-Called Libertarian Censorship

The owner of the DailyPaul did a great job in creating a popular message forum for libertarians and Ron Paul supporters. Now that he's decided to pull the plug and close his site, I wish everyone there well. In 2009, I was banned this supposed libertarian site for posting a subject about Zionism when even Jewish owned sites left my critique up. I hope the owner doesn't take any this personally as I don't know him from Adam and have never communicated with you. This is simply a rant about the internet and libertarians/ freedom-lovers in 2015, and the subject of freedom of public discourse- and I think it's important to discuss.

This, then, is what David Cameron is proposing:

* All Britons' communications must be easy for criminals, voyeurs and foreign spies to intercept

* Any firms within reach of the UK government must be banned from producing secure software

* All major code repositories, such as Github and Sourceforge, must be blocked

* Search engines must not answer queries about web-pages that carry secure software

* Virtually all academic security work in the UK must cease -- security research must only take place in proprietary research environments where there is no onus to publish one's findings, such as industry R&D and the security services

* All packets in and out of the country, and within the country, must be subject to Chinese-style deep-packet inspection and any packets that appear to originate from secure software must be dropped

* Existing walled gardens (like Ios and games consoles) must be ordered to ban their users from installing secure software

The Air Force is being forced to consider such desperate measures because it doesn’t have enough fighter jets and trained aircrew to fly missions where they would simulate enemy warplanes—also called “red air” in military slang.

Starting with the Cold War, and with the above interventions building upon that, we have 70 years of American foreign policy, without which – as Russian/American writer Andre Vltchek has observed – “almost all Muslim countries, including Iran, Egypt and Indonesia, would now most likely be socialist, under a group of very moderate and mostly secular leaders” (2). Even the ultra-oppressive Saudi Arabia – without Washington’s protection – would probably be a very different place.

Did a Russian Parliamentarian Just Commit Treason?

An interesting thing happened in Washington recently, and it had nothing to do with Beltway politics, Democrats vs. Republicans, or any of the other standard fare for the middle of the week in mid-January. Rather, a relatively small, little publicized event took place at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), a prominent liberal-leaning think tank in Washington.

The event, “Russia’s Opposition in a Time of War and Crisis,” featured prominent Russian liberal opposition parliamentarian (member of the Russian Duma) Ilya Ponomarev, a noted critic of Russian President Putin, providing a detailed presentation regarding the current political climate in Russia, and the potential for the ousting or overthrow of the Russian government. Yes, you heard that right. A Russian elected official came to the United States to give a talk about how best to effect regime change in his own country.

H&R Block: ‘No One Can Understand’ New Obamacare Tax Code

H&R Block, the nation’s largest retail tax preparation company warns that the newly released Obamacare tax code, officially called the Affordable Care Act, is likely to confuse millions of taxpayers who try to tackle their tax returns for 2014.

“Now that the Affordable Care Act has made health care a tax issue, no one can understand it,” H&R Block flatly tells taxpayers in a video that resides on its dedicated Obamacare web site.

A former IRS Commissioner agrees, and cautions that the new tax requirements will be a “shock to the system,” especially afflicting low-income earners who have never itemized on their tax return.

‘CIA killed prisoners, made it look like suicide’ – Guantanamo guard

A former Guantanamo Bay prison guard and Marine explained in details what makes him believe three problematic detainees were killed at CIA black site in Guantanomo and their death was covered up as a triple suicide.

Army Staff Sergeant Joseph Hickman was on duty at the notorious prison camp when the three men died, and insists the official version of events is “impossible,” he told Vice News.

The three men were Salah Ahmed Al-Salami, 37, from Yemen, Mani Shaman Al-Utaybi, 30, from Saudi Arabia, and Yasser Talal Al-Zahrani, 22, also from Saudi Arabia. None of them had been charged with any crime.

He explained in an incendiary interview with Vice News that the three men would have had to have committed suicide at exactly the same time in a cellblock where guards check on detainees every four minutes.

In the Charlie Hebdo psyop double standards, logical fallacies and crass ignorance are everywhere

Many of pointed out that apparently the French and most westerners seem to be much more upset when 12 people die in Paris then when hundreds, thousand and tens of thousands die elsewhere. It appears that the 1980s slogan "don't touch my pal" which was originally supposed to denounce racism now has been "re-worked" into a, if not racist, then at least a chauvinistic mode: don't kill French leftists no matter how offensive their discourse is. I won't make that case again here, but because by now anybody still capable of critical thought "got it", but I will look at another, much less noticed case of double standards: the one about the issue of moral pain.

Virginian-Pilot journalists: Corporate management pressure is stifling coverage

Things are not as they should be these days at The Virginian-Pilot, the largest newspaper in Virginia. In the fall, the paper produced an important investigation of municipal government, one that has sparked an official inquiry, led to policy changes at a local bank, and prompted the mayor of Virginia Beach to resign his lucrative private-sector job. By any expectation, the paper would have kept dogging the story, probing whether there was more to discover about the overlap between government and business elites in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia.

Instead, the newsroom has been consumed with warding off pressure from an unexpected source: upper management at its own paper. In the view of several Pilot journalists, that pressure has stifled further enterprise reporting. It has also led to concerns that the paper might even publicly backtrack from its published coverage.

As one veteran journalist at the paper put it: “We’re walking around with duct tape over our keyboards.”

After Israel halts funds transfer, Palestinians pay partial salaries

The Palestinian unity government has paid only partial salaries to its 153,000 civil servants after Israel's freezing of the transfer of taxes it collects for the Palestinians, a West Bank official said on Tuesday.

Abd El Rahman Bayatneh, a spokesman for the Palestinian finance ministry, said the government paid civil servants only 60 percent of their salaries for December. Israel froze more than $100 million a month in taxes after the Palestinians moved to join the International Criminal Court, which could expose Israel to war crimes charges.

Police in Los Angeles are in a tweeting frenzy over excitement about bi-racial couple who have been invited to Washington D.C. as personal guests of Michelle Obama for the State of the Union Address tomorrow night.

"Recently, Captain Phil Tingirides, Commanding Officer of Southeast Division, and his wife, Sergeant Emada Tingirides, assigned to Operations-South Bureau, received an invitation from First Lady Michelle Obama requesting their presence at President Barack Obama's State of the Union Address at the U.S. Capitol...

An Interview with Syrian UN Ambassador Bashar al-Ja’afari by EVA BARTLETT

snip: Yes, this is what transpired in the media. I didn’t ask to circulate the letter, I wanted it to be shared only by the members of the Security Council, but it was somehow leaked. But I would like to confirm that, yes, I sent a letter drawing the kind attention of the secretary-general and the members of the Security Council to this flagrant and blatant interference in domestic affairs, this violation of our sovereignty, the illegal crossing of our borders. Whenever one of those who cross illegally into Syria gets killed by the terrorists, then the Syrian government is blamed for not protecting him, although they entered Syria illegally. Many journalists have been killed, unfortunately. It is unfortunate, but they are responsible for their own fate. They didn’t enter Syria via the Syrian government. We would have protected them. We would have shown them where to go and where not to go. But they had bad intentions. So, many of them got killed, beheaded, kidnapped.

Selma movie review: ‘What happens when a man stands up?’ Viewing yesterday and today

*hyperlinks/video live at source*

Selma artistically documents activists’ strategic work to realize basic human rights already legally guaranteed under the US Constitution: voting and freedom of speech.

Activism was required after government “leaders” ongoing rejection of their Oath of office to protect and defend the US Constitution, and psychopathically attacking activists for “disturbing the peace.”

The movie has FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover advise US President Johnson that Dr. King is a “degenerate immoral animal” who the FBI could simply assassinate.
