Why WWIII Is On The Horizon — Paul Craig Roberts

The collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 gave birth to a dangerous American ideology called neoconservativism. The Soviet Union had served as a constraint on US unilateral action. With the removal of this constraint on Washington, neoconservatives declared their agenda of US world hegemony. America was now the “sole superpower,” the “unipower,” that could act without restraint anywhere in the world.

LOOK: This Billboard’s Message To Welfare Recipients Has Some Saying It Should Be ‘All Over America’

The sign is reminiscent of one of the display most seen at Tea Party rallies, one that insists “Taxed Enough Already!”

It is also an echo of another sign that made the rounds last year that read, “I used to be called a taxpayer, now I’m called a right-wing extremist.”

But when it comes to taxes and the welfare payments that too many today feel they should be used for, perhaps founding father Benjamin Franklin put it best.

“I think the best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it,” Franklin wrote in 1766. “In my youth I traveled much, and I observed in different countries, that the more public provisions were made for the poor, the less they provided for themselves, and of course became poorer. And, on the contrary, the less was done for them, the more they did for themselves, and became richer.”

Gee, I Wonder Why The NY Post, Getty Images & 10 Other Corporate Shills Didn't Publish These Photos Of Trump's 'Committed' 'Israel Did 9/11' 'Trump Guy'?

Yesterday I came across a NY Post hit-piece against Trump and to my surprise, the two people pictured with Trump, a red-haired girl and black guy, were the very folks I spent ten hours in line in the rain waiting to see Trump in Michigan last week. I interviewed them in this video. In the photo, they're standing right where I had been before I was dragged out of there by Trump's Secret Service goons. So if the New York Post and Getty Images were right there, why didn't ANY of those corporate news outlets post pics or video of me shouting at Trump that 'Israel did 9/11', and 'Dancing Israelis were arrested in New Jersey on 9/11, NOT Muslims'? Gee, I wonder why that could be?

BBC radio hosts 13-minute Jewish conspiracy rant

‘Campaign Against Antisemitism’ demands broadcaster give caller’s phone number to police following racist diatribe...Andy referenced well-known anti-Semitic tropes, claiming that the Jews didn’t originate from Palestine but that most came from “an empire called Khazaria” in eastern Europe and that “the Rothschilds, the people who own the Bank of England, the people who own the Federal Reserve, they’re all Zionist Jews. The people who own corporate America, the media …. they’re all Zionist Jews. We are ruled by Zionist Jews.” He continued by complaining about an obsession with the Holocaust and repeating the mantra that “we are dominated by the Jews’ system, the financial Jewish system.” He added that Jews are still “banging on about the Jews and the Holocaust- we keep going on about six million Jews.”

How Big Oil Conquered the World

From farm to pharmaceutical, diesel truck to dinner plate, pipeline to plastic product, it is impossible to think of an area of our modern-day lives that is not affected by the oil industry. The story of oil is the story of the modern world. And this is the story of those who helped shape that world, and how the oil-igarchy they created is on the verge of monopolizing life itself.

HOUSE DEMOCRATS INTRODUCE BILL TO BAN ALL GUNS IN AMERICA EXCEPT SINGLE SHOT.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The actual text of this bill is HERE. Read it carefully. The bill defines virtually every kind of auto-loading gun as an "assault weapon."

This bill is a complete violation of the Second Amendment.

The United States Supreme Court ruled in Marbury vs Madison that laws repugnant to the Constitution are automatically null and void. The United States Supreme Court reaffirmed that principle in Norton vs Shelby County! The United States Supreme Court also ruled in United States vs Miller that the Second Amendment reserves to the people arms equal to those carried by the uniformed government forces, given that the purpose of the Second Amendment is not hunting or target shooting but arming the people against the rise of tyranny.

This bill proves that tyranny is alive and well in Sodom on the Potomac. This bill proves that Congress has gone off the Constitutional reservation they are supposed to confine themselves to, and by that act have proven that they are no longer the legal and legitimate government of this nation. As a result, the American people are under no legal or moral obligation to obey such a government, pay its bills, or sacrifice the lives of their children in the government's wars of conquest!

The government's argument for a gun ban is weak, to say the least. The US Government has been spending your tax dollars giving military weapons to Al Qaeda, ISIS, Israel, and Mexican Drug cartels, but is afraid to allow law abiding citizens to have them. The US Government insists that banning guns will disarm the criminals. History is against them on this point. The US Government demands that you rely on the police to protect you from criminals, who have whatever guns they wish to have. But the existing bans and the police have not stopped any crimes or mass shootings in progress. The only mass shootings halted at the time they were happening were the result of citizens using legally-owned firearms in defense of themselves and others.

Today in the United States, the average time for a response to a 911 call runs anywhere from 12 to 26 minutes depending on where you live. In many police departments, the 911 line now goes to a recording system! Under the civil forfeiture laws, the police steal more from US citizens than the criminals do, and the out-of-control police have murdered more innocent Americans than terrorists or mass shooters! And we are supposed to call and wait patiently for their help?

Remember the Warren v. District of Columbia lawsuit? Three women living in Georgetown were the victims of a home invasion. They called 911. The Georgetown police said they were on their way, but never arrived until the following morning, after the three women spent the entire night being raped and brutalized by their attackers (who escaped and were never found). The women sued the police for failing to protect them but lost the lawsuit when the Judge declared that there is no actual law which obligates the police to intervene in a violent crime!

Yet the US Government insists we disarm ourselves and wait for the police to show up ... if ever!

The police are never present when a crime occurs. When a crime, or act of terror, or mass shooting happens, there are only two parties present; the perpetrator and the victim. Common sense says that We The People have a right to be armed with weapons equal to if not superior to those in the hands of the criminals terrorists, or mass shooters!

The US Government's real goal is not to stop crime, as most of these weapons specified in the bill are not used to commit crimes, but to hand a military advantage to the US government in advance of a population angered to the point of rebellion by further confiscation of our wealth and our children for more wars of conquest.

The Second Amendment exists not to protect hunting and target shooting, but to give the people a means to hold oppressive government in check.

"The Constitution preserves "the advantage of being armed which Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation. . . (where) the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms." -- The Federalist, No. 46 - James Madison

"[I]f circumstances should at any time oblige the government to form an army of any magnitude, that army can never be formidable to the liberties of the people while there is a large body of citizens, little if at all inferior to them in discipline and the use of arms, who stand ready to defend their rights and those of their fellow citizens." -- The Federalist, No. 29 - Alexander Hamilton

"[A]rms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property. . . Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them." -- Thoughts On Defensive War, 1775 - Thomas Paine

"What, sir, is the use of militia? It is to prevent the establishment of a standing army, the bane of liberty. . . Whenever Government means to invade the rights and liberties of the people, they always attempt to destroy the militia, in order to raise a standing army upon its ruins." -- Debate, U.S. House of representatives, August 17, 1789 - Elbridge Gerry

"The great object is, that every man be armed." - Patrick Henry

"That the people have a Right to mass and to bear arms; that a well regulated militia composed of the Body of the people, trained to arms, is the proper natural and safe defense of a free State..." - George Mason

"Are we at last brought to such an humiliating and debasing degradation that we cannot be trusted with arms for our own defense? Where is the difference between having our arms under our own possesion and under our own direction, and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands?" - Patrick Henry

"Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect every one who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined.... O sir, we should have fine times, indeed, if to punish tyrants, it were only sufficient to assemble the people!" - Patrick Henry

"No free government was ever founded or ever preserved its liberty, without uniting the characters of the citizen and soldier in those destined for the defense of the state.... Such are a well regulated militia, composed of the freeholders, citizen and husbandman, who take up arms to preserve their property, as individuals, and their rights as freemen." - State Gazette (Charleston), September 8, 1788

"While the people have property, arms in their hands, and only a spark of noble spirit, the most corrupt Congress must be mad to form any project of tyranny." - Rev. Nicholas Collin, Fayetteville Gazette (N.C.), October 12, 1789

"And that the said Constitution be never construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the press, or the rights of conscience; or to prevent the people of the United States, who are peacable citizens, from keeping their own arms; or to raise standing armies, unless necessary for the defense of the United States, or of some one or more of them; or to prevent teh people from petitioning, in a peacable and orderly manner, the federal legislature, for a redress of grievances; or to subject the people to unreasonable searches and seizures of their persons, papers or possesions." - Samuel Adams, Debates of the Massachusetts Convention of 1788

"A militia when properly formed are in fact the people themselves . . . and include all men capable of bearing arms. . . To preserve liberty it is essential that the whole body of people always possess arms... The mind that aims at a select militia, must be influenced by a truly anti-republican principle." -- "... whereas, to preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them..." - Richard H. Lee, Additional Letters from the Federal Farmer 53, 1788

"... of the liberty of conscience in matters of religious faith, of speech and of the press; of the trail by jury of the vicinage in civil and criminal cases; of the benefit of the writ of habeas corpus; of the right to keep and bear arms.... If these rights are well defined, and secured against encroachment, it is impossible that government should ever degenerate into tyranny." - James Monroe

"The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government." (Thomas Jefferson Papers p. 334, 1950)

The LA Methane Leak - "Don't Worry, The Air Is Safe To Breathe"

On this edition of DTRH Popeye spends the first hour covering the ongoing, and massive methane leak in the Porter Ranch suburb of Los Angeles California. The leak is so massive there is a no fly zone set at 2000 ft above it, and people are already being moved out of their homes. This is as bad as the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico except it's methane into the air rather than oil into the water. Popeye points out how fast things are happening on the ground in Porter Ranch vs. the ongoing, dragged out situation in St. Louis with the leaking radioactive waste sites like the Westlake Landfill. It goes to show you the power of the nuclear cartel.

Federal judge: Drinking tea, shopping at a gardening store is probable cause for a SWAT raid on your home

In April 2012, a Kansas SWAT team raided the home of Robert and Addie Harte, their 7-year-old daughter and their 13-year-old son. The couple, both former CIA analysts, awoke to pounding at the door. When Robert Harte answered, SWAT agents flooded the home. He was told to lie on the floor. When Addie Harte came out to see what was going on, she saw her husband on his stomach as SWAT cop stood over him with a gun. The family was then held at gunpoint for more than two hours while the police searched their home. Though they claimed to be looking for evidence of a major marijuana growing operation, they later stated that they knew within about 20 minutes that they wouldn’t find any such operation. So they switched to search for evidence of “personal use.” They found no evidence of any criminal activity.

A Nervous George Soros Lashes Out At Donald Trump: He Wants You To Be Afraid

It appears The Establishment has decided to bring in the big guns to dislodge The GOP's nightmare scenario as Donald Trump goes from strength to strength in the polls. Writing in an op-ed for The Guardian, billionaire puppet-master George Soros urges Americans "to resist the siren song of the likes of Donald Trump," adding that "the terrorists and demagogues want us to be scared. We mustn’t give in."

Authored by George Soros, originally posted at The Guardian,

"It’s not easy to resist the threats and the hysteria that surround us, but we must do, as fear is the greatest danger to open society

Open societies are always endangered. This is especially true of America and Europe today, as a result of the terrorist attacks in Paris and elsewhere, and the way that America and Europe, particularly France, have reacted to them."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to George Soros: sir, you and your family will never have to deal with potential rapes, beatings, murders, and crimes by Middle Eastern immigrants because you have one of the best security companies around you at all times, most probably T & M Protection Resources, which lists you as their client.

Most of the rest of us do not have those kinds of resources available.

The horror stories from the massive Middle Eastern migrations into Europe have been real, wrenching, and painful to read. We are looking at massive spikes in crime; rapes; attacks; and threats that if Europeans do not convert to Islam, they will be assassinated.

You know that every word I am typing is true, and can be corroborated very quickly. So, sir, is this the kind of outcome you want to see for massive Middle-Eastern migration in the US?!?

Because right now, I really feel I must ask. I would really like to hope not.

I am neither a fear monger nor someone who would engage in any kind of hysteria; I infinitely prefer working with facts and logic. But the concerns Americans have about these issues are rooted in a legitimate reality they have been able witness in Europe, and Americans do not want to see these things happen here.

And in summation, I would like to challenge your statement that "...fear is the greatest danger to open society." That is only partially correct. However, lousy, short-sighted New World Order "planning", by people who are pathologically incapable of thinking anything through to its logical conclusion, is the greatest danger to open society.

After we win: Education’s focus on truth, technology, and love

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

From ZenGardner, StormCloudsGathering’s The truth about school in 2 minutes:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uAZqMaBY2MI

When We the People have some time to reflect upon our world once we’ve won our global contest against a criminal .01% (documentation in “Truth” section), we’ll demand three obvious transformations for educating our children:

Truth: correct lies of omission and commission in all subjects.
Technology: utilize released technology for optimal human freedom.
Love: in human preference and connected reality, explore/create Life newly in light of expressing love.

Let’s consider each point:

1. Truth: Education, corporate media (including school text publishers), and .01% “leaders” centered in government and money constantly lie in omission and commission. We the People will win because the Emperor’s New Clothes game-changing truths are revealed to anyone who cares to look:

Love Thy Enemy? US Plot to Evacuate Top Jihadis From Ramadi Uncovered

An Iraqi volunteer forces commander has revealed US plans to evacuate Daesh (ISIL/ISIS) leaders from the central Iraqi city of Ramadi, according to the Iranian news agency FARS.

The disclosure comes as the Iraqi army and popular troops are attempting to secure victory over the jihadist group in Ramadi.

FARS quoted Imam Khamenei Battalion Commander Haidar al-Hosseini al-Ardavi as saying that "the delay in operations to liberate the cities of Ramadi and Fallujah in Anbar province has been the result of US interference."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These alleged terror groups, supported, trained, and supplied, by the US government, and are a product of US foreign policy.

And what is to be the outcome of that foreign policy?!?

To balkanize countries like Iraq, into smaller and smaller entities which cannot possibly pose any "existential threat" to Israel; it is just that simple.

And a short memo to the Obama administration; whatever shred of credibility you had, coming into 2016, has been utterly destroyed by this revelation.
The American people understand that they can no longer believe even a single word any member of this administration says, henceforward.

Alarming Number of Homeless, Hungry Americans Flood Major US Cities

The US capital increased its homeless population by more than 60 percent in 2015.

The biggest cities in the US are struggling from a lack of homeless shelters and food pantries as they appear unable to cope with the rising number of homeless people nationwide, a study by the US Conference of Mayors revealed on Tuesday.
The past year has marked the year of homelessness in the US as Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., and Seattle — America's most populated areas — hosted a huge jump in the number of people on the streets, according to the Hunger and Homelessness study. Washington, D.C. ranks first in the list of cities with homeless as figures say it has 28 percent more homeless and 60 percent more transient families. The demand for food for the hungry rose 27 percent over last year's.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Congratulations, President Obama, on how you have "grown" the US economy (for the one percenters, that is).

Prominent US journalist claims Washington knowingly armed Daesh

Pulitzer-prize-winning journalist Seymour Hersh reports that the administration of President Barack Obama, in particular the CIA, has knowingly armed militant Islamists in Syria, including the Islamic State [Daeh].

"Barack Obama's repeated insistence that Bashar al-Assad must leave office -- and that there are 'moderate' rebel groups in Syria capable of defeating him -- has in recent years provoked quiet dissent, and even overt opposition, among some of the most senior officers on the Pentagon's Joint Staff," Hersh writes in the London Review of Books. "Their criticism has focused on what they see as the administration's fixation on Assad's primary ally, Vladimir Putin. In their view, Obama is captive to Cold War thinking about Russia and China, and hasn't adjusted his stance on Syria to the fact both countries share Washington's anxiety about the spread of terrorism in and beyond Syria; like Washington, they believe that Islamic State must be stopped."

POLICE OFFICER THAT KILLED SIXTH GRADER TAMIR RICE UNLIKELY TO FACE CHARGES

Police officers involved in the shooting death of a child in Cleveland are unlikely to be indicted, the lawyer for the victim’s family said Sunday.

Attorney Subodh Chandra told the Washington Post he had lost faith in the possibility of the officers facing charges in the year since the killing of the child, Tamir Rice, he has lost faith in any chance of charges, despite surveillance footage showing an officer gunning down the 12 year old.

“This is apparently how long it takes to engineer denying justice to a family when the video of the incident clearly illustrates probable cause to charge the officer,” Chandra told the newspaper.

An indictment against either officer would likely require a grand jury to decide a crime may have been committed.

Rice was gunned down by a police officer on November 22, 2014 while playing in a Cleveland park. The African American sixth grader died the following day.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The assassination of children, particularly African-American children by police in this country, has become the "new normal" in cities around America, and this has to stop, and right now.

The community where we live in Hawaii is very kid-centric, and people do look out for little ones with a great deal of kindness and compassion.

I cannot imagine how horrific it must be for some parents who do not know, when their child goes out to play, if they will return alive.

Voluntary Enslavement

In recent years, I’ve been predicting that the governments, particularly those of the EU and US, will seek to eliminate paper currency. The objective will be to make monetary transactions between private parties as difficult as they can, by requiring that all transactions take place through financial institutions. If they can do this, they will effectively make a run on banks impossible in the future as the banks will simply shut off the money tap, as the Greek banks did. This power will additionally make negative interest rates and confiscations more possible.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The last official act of any government is to loot the nation!

Hillary Clinton Touts Overthrow of Gadhafi, but Doesn’t Mention That Clinton Foundation Donors Did Big Business in Tyrant’s Libya

On Saturday, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton again justified the 2011 U.S. policy of regime change in Libya, citing, at least in part, the fact that dictator Moammar Gadhafi had killed Americans.

“We have to continue to do what is necessary when someone like Gadhafi, a despot with American blood on his hands, is overturned,” Clinton said during the weekend’s Democratic presidential debate in Manchester, New Hampshire. “But I’ll tell you what would have happened if we had not joined with our European partners and our Arab partners to assist the people in Libya, you would be looking at Syria.”

But early in the administration, Clinton had championed an allegiance with the Libyan regime under Gadhafi, during a time when some of the major U.S. corporations doing business in Libya were also donating heavy sums to the Clinton Foundation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Do not for a moment imagine that this "pay to play" mentality will suddenly leave her consciousness, if she is able to win (or steal) the election; it will simply continue, unabated. For her and Bill Clinton, inhabiting the White House is simply another way to make millions of dollars through her foundation, and the public be damned.

And this is why we have to bring her past behaviour to the unblinking gaze of documented fact, because, if in fact, past is prologue to the future, we can expect massive international interventionism from a second Clinton presidency.

And has anyone out there had the "male attributes" to ask her if the current post-Ghadaffi situation in Libya, which has been rife with civil war since 2011; whose leadership has been badly factionalised and has just this month created a basis for a national unity government, was the outcome she desired when she green-lit Ghadaffi's assassination?!?

And what about the reality that Libya has become a
second home to ISIS?!?

Because if all I have stated here were not the outcomes Clinton desired as Secretary of State, and were simply "unintended consequences" of her policies here, please consider Libya a thoroughly terrifying, but very real, "prequel" to what a Clinton presidency will look like.

CONGRESS FORCES IRS TO USE PRIVATE BILL COLLECTORS

A law going into effect this month is forcing the Internal Revenue Service(IRS) to employ private debt collection companies, a plan which will not only cost the agency money, but will make it easier for scammers to defraud Americans.

The provision, which is buried in the new $305-billion highway bill passed by Congress, means that bill collectors will be using the same tactics to collect tax debt as they do for a late credit-card payment. That concerns IRS officials, who have long warned Americans not to take seriously calls from scam artists claiming to be from the agency.

IRS Commissioner John Koskinen told The Washington Post that the agency’s traditional message has been “if you are surprised to be hearing from us, you’re probably not hearing from us because you won’t hear from us first by phone.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Collection agencies may well find Americans (allegedly) owning back taxes in a very foul, vile mood; and with the same search tools available to them as the agencies have, there may well be some nasty, if not fatal, repercussions to this work for the IRS, starting this year.

As I have said many times at this site, I never condone violence; but I do understand how violence can happen.

New Chinese spying laws draw international criticism, despite similarity with UK’s Investigatory Powers Bill

New spying laws in China have drawn wide criticism from the international community, despite being largely similar to those set to be passed in the UK without much condemnation in the UK.

The new Chinese spying powers allow authorities to weaken security so that messages can be read and force companies to co-operate with surveillance. Both of those powers are also part of the Investigatory Powers Bill, which is expected to be passed into law in early 2016, on a sped-up schedule.

China’s controversial new law was passed on Sunday and requires that technology companies hand over encryption keys and other sensitive information. The country says that the powers are needed to fight against a growing threat from militants and separatists.

Campaigners' fury over claims the BBC hounds the grieving relatives of recently-deceased pensioners over TV licence fees

Grieving relatives of recently deceased pensioners are being 'hounded' by the BBC to pay for a new TV licence, it has been claimed.

Following the death of over-75s, who receive a free licence, families are sent demands to buy a new one – and may be visited by inspectors if they do not respond, campaigners said.

Some have received a letter from the Corporation just days after their loved one's funeral. Critics said it was a 'disgusting' way to treat the recently bereaved.

Syrian journalist & filmmaker who exposed ISIS Aleppo atrocities assassinated in Turkey

A prominent Syrian journalist and filmmaker, who produced anti-Islamic State documentaries was gunned down by unknown assailants in broad daylight in Gaziantep, Turkey. This is the third assassination of a journalist in the country over the last three months. Naji Jerf, editor-in-chief of the Hentah monthly, known for his documentaries describing violence and abuses on Islamic State-controlled territories (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) was shot and killed near a building housing Syrian independent media outlets in the Turkish city of Gaziantep. His death was originally reported by a group of citizen journalists he was working with.

California police officer killed protecting Alex Jones from potential killer

AUSTIN, Tex. (INTELLIHUB) — If you don’t already know him, Alex Jones is a controversial radio talk show host who does what he says and says what he does. The guy is for real and he’s in it for the long-haul. In fact, you can likely bet he’s one of the establishment’s top enemies aside from Donald Trump who Jones recently interviewed.

He’s been exposing the “New World Order” as he’s termed them, the world’s top “globalist elite” for years on his popular radio show, “The Alex Jones Show”.

On Dec 22. Jones reported while on air that the Police Chief of Austin had previously informed him that they had arrested someone who came to town awhile back to kill Jones.

Former prosecutor says Steven Avery documentary on Netflix is unfair

This fellow was wrongfully convicted of rape and released. The state was going to have to pay him $36 million for a wrongful conviction,so they set him up again
and these film makers have the prosecutor dead to rights and the prosecutor is cryin like a little bully baby!

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The prosecutor who put Steven Avery in prison for killing a young photographer says a Netflix documentary chronicling the case is slanted toward the defense.

Avery made headlines in 2003 when he was released from prison after spending nearly two decades behind bars for a rape he didn’t commit. Two years later, Avery was charged with killing Teresa Halbach, a freelance photographer who visited the Avery family salvage yard to take photos of cars on Halloween and was never seen alive again.

Cops Seized Over $107,000 From Couple, Didn’t Charge Them With a Crime

A Massachusetts couple has been fighting for three years to regain cash they say was wrongfully seized from them. In October 2012, the Illinois State Police pulled over Adam and Jennifer Perry for speeding as they were driving through Henry County on Interstate 80. The Perrys said they were headed to Salt Lake City, Utah to see a hearing specialist for an ear infection Adam was suffering from. A drug dog sniffed and indicated on the car. Officers then searched the vehicle and found $107,520 in cash in a suitcase and in Jennifer’s wallet. The Perrys claimed the search was without their consent and without a warrant. According to the officers, they also found a duffel bag that reportedly smelled of marijuana.

Cop Accidentally Shoots Pistol Inside Airport While “Practicing his Quick Draw Skills”

Imagine for a moment that you were open carrying a pistol in a public space and all of the sudden, you accidentally squeeze off a round.

There are two possible scenarios that would take place; the first one being that police return fire and you are killed. The second, less lethal result would be your inevitable arrest and charges of public endangerment, unlawful discharge, illegal use of a firearm, assault with a deadly weapon, terrorism, or a myriad of other charges associated with sending a deadly projectile hurling through walls and near the heads of innocent people. You would immediately be facing fines, jail time, probation, and firearms restrictions.

However, if you are a government agent who’s trusted with carrying a deadly weapon into places others cannot, you needn’t worry about any of those repercussions.

Tarantino: I 'Utterly Reject' Argument That Only Some Cops Are Bad

uentin Tarantino continues to stand by anti-police comments he made earlier this fall in a new interview, saying he “completely rejects” the “bad apples” argument that only a small number of police officers behave inappropriately on the job.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly on Monday (and in an interview with Howard Stern last week), the Hateful Eight director put the blame for some instances of police brutality on the “institutional racism” of the profession.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to disagree with Tarantino. The problem is not institutional racism but training by the Israelis, who teach the US police to treat American citizens the way the IDF treats the Palestinians. As I mentioned before, here in Hawaii we are not seeing the types of abuses seen on the mainland. My contacts with HPD have been polite and respectful and I have some good friends in the HPD, some of whom read this website and share my concerns about the direction the nation is going. Yes, there are bad apples in the basket. There are way too many of them because it is being encouraged by government, to turn the police into a tool of political repression and confiscation. But there are a few good cops still out there.

Undercover Cops Pull Gun On Protester and Attack Woman When Exposed As Agent Provocateurs

At least four undercover police officers were caught attempting to infiltrate a protest this week, and one of them reportedly pulled a gun on protesters when he was confronted about his identity. According to The Link Newspaper, one Concordia student, Katie Nelson approached an undercover officer suspiciously and asked him about his identity, and he reacted by slamming her to the ground. The young girl ended up being hospitalized as a result of the attack.

Nelson and another protester by the name of Zachary Savard told The Link that one of the officers pulled a gun on them when he was confronted about being an agent.

“As we came to them, they just took a gun out, and said move,” Savard said.

Meanwhile, other undercover agents on the scene grabbed a random protester from the crowd and drug him to a parking lot where they arrested him.

Republicans and Democrats have MERGED: It's all one big, police state party of insanity now!

In recent days the House, thanks to House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, adopted a $1 trillion-plus budget bill that adds hundreds of billions to the federal debt and decreases further the opportunity for our progeny to have a good life.

With its passage, this latest budget represents the complete political sell-out of the American people.

The big lie: Anti-Semitism at Concordia

... the Montreal Gazette recently published a front page article claiming Jewish students at Concordia University were "feeling like the target of a hate campaign." The reason cited, as far as this writer can tell, was simply that many students were standing in solidarity with Palestinians. At the end of November, the student group Solidarity for Palestinian Human Rights organized BDS Week. Without citing a single incident of actual racism, the Gazette painted a picture of the discussion series as hateful.

Reporter Karen Seidman simply quoted an individual decrying "a hostile environment on campus" and another who denounced "speakers slandering Israeli tactics and spewing hate."

On Medicare-for-All, Clinton Reminds Us That She's Part of the Problem

If the Hillary Clinton campaign had its way, supporters of Bernie Sanders – whose backing she will obviously want in November should she win the Democratic nomination – would feel that, while Clinton might not be all that they want in a president, she would at least go part of the way there. But if you followed the third debate deep enough into the night, you witnessed, in what stands as the most disingenuous moment of the Democratic race thus far, Clinton not simply disagreeing with Sanders on his Medicare For All, single payer health insurance plan, but knowingly distorting it. This was not Hillary Clinton offering a more moderate version of a solution, this was Hillary Clinton acting as part of the problem.

The 10 ways Obama has actively sought to destroy America

Most Americans don't want to believe they could elect a president who would actively seek to undermine the country and destroy many of our fundamental institutions, but after nearly seven years of onetime community organizer Barack Hussein Obama as president, millions of voters are convinced that he came to office specifically with an agenda to take the United States down several notches.

In fact, many Americans believe that Obama even admitted as much, albeit in a cryptic sort of way, when he declared just five days before the November 2008 election that he wanted to "fundamentally transform" the country (see here).

Was that just "in the moment" electioneering? Let's take a closer look at Obama and his record, and see if he has pursued policies and legislation that have made America stronger or weaker.

Heroic Judge Tosses Out "Criminal Defamation of Jews" Charge In Montana

28-year-old David Joseph Lenio had faced up to ten years in prison if convicted of "Criminal Defamation" of Jews under Montana's oppressive statute. Montana Prosecutor Stacy Bowman had aggressively argued Lenio's prosecution for statements he allegedly posted to Twitter earlier this year. But Flathead County, Montana District Judge Heidi J. Ulbricht ruled that Montana's criminal defamation law was overbroad and tossed the charge out. Lenio still faces a separate charge of intimidation, for which he reportedly will stand trail in January, although it's rumored that a plea deal will be reached. In her ruling tossing out the criminal defamation of Jews charge, Judge Ulbricht began "it appears that the charge is based on allegations that defendant posted violent messages on twitter asserting that Jewish people have harmed U.S. politics, degraded the national economy, hate free speech, and "are known bullsh-ters."

Year Ends in Economic Slump: “More Americans Than Ever Living in Poverty”

The only lesson a sane person could learn from the financial disaster that has befallen the United States, is that crime pays for those at the top of the system, who have rigged the economy and stunted the development of millions upon millions of Americans. Such a person would understand that a vibrant Middle Class just isn’t wanted today, that the value of human labor has declined exponentially, and that the future belongs to a tiny class of rulers and exploiters. The situation is bleak, indeed.

WHAT IF JESUS HAD BEEN BORN 2,000 YEARS LATER IN THE AMERICAN POLICE STATE?

The Christmas narrative of a baby born in a manger is a familiar one.

Consider the following if you will.

Had Jesus been born in the year 2015…

Rather than traveling to Bethlehem for a census, Jesus’ parents would have been mailed a 28-page American Community Survey, a mandatory government questionnaire documenting their habits, household inhabitants, work schedule, and even how many toilets were in their home, etc. The penalty for not responding to this invasive survey would have resulted in a fine of $5,000.

Instead of being born in a manger, Jesus might have been born at home. Rather than wise men and shepherds bringing gifts, however, the baby’s parents might have been forced to ward off visits from state social workers intent on prosecuting them for the home birth. One couple in Washington had all three of their children removed after social services objected to the two youngest being birthed in an unassisted home delivery.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This government used the events of 9/11 to turn this country into a police state, and the refinements on this continue apace.

But the problem here, after all the lies the American people have been fed to justify this, and the endless wars which followed, the American people can no longer believe a word the US government tells them.

Compliance can be, more or less, coersively and punitively enforced; but not trust, belief, or loyalty.

Unclassified DHS Documents Prove Local Law Enforcement is Being Propagandized against Innocent American Patriots

Homeland Security documents, which have been marked as "Unclassified/Law Enforcement Sensitive," appear to demonstrate just how local law enforcement is being propagandized against Patriots in the united States by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) under Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah. And who did the document target? The Constitutional militia, specifically those who engaged the Department of Interior's Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in Nevada of April last year at the Bundy Ranch siege.

First and foremost understand that the "intelligence assessment," dated July 2014, claims that DHS has "seen a spike within the past year in violence committed by militia extremists and lone offenders who hold violent anti-government beliefs."

Cop Accidentally Shoots Pistol Inside Airport While “Practicing his Quick Draw Skills”

Imagine for a moment that you were open carrying a pistol in a public space and all of the sudden, you accidentally squeeze off a round. There are two possible scenarios that would take place; the first one being that police return fire and you are killed. The second, less lethal result would be your inevitable arrest and charges of public endangerment, unlawful discharge, illegal use of a firearm, assault with a deadly weapon, terrorism, or a myriad of other charges associated with sending a deadly projectile hurling through walls and near the heads of innocent people. You would immediately be facing fines, jail time, probation, and firearms restrictions.

HOUSE DEMOCRATS INTRODUCE BILL TO BAN ALL GUNS IN AMERICA EXCEPT SINGLE SHOT.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The actual text of this bill is HERE. Read it carefully. The bill defines virtually every kind of auto-loading gun as an "assault weapon" The goal is not to stop crime, as most of these weapons are not used to commit crimes, but to hand a military advantage to the government in advance of a population angered to the point of rebellion by further confiscation of our wealth and our children for more wars of conquest.

This bill is a complete violation of the Second Amendment. The United States Supreme Court ruled in Marbury vs Madison that laws repugnant to the Constitution are automatically null and void. The United States Supreme Court reaffirmed that principle in Norton vs Shelby County! The United States Supreme Court also ruled in United States vs Miller that the Second Amendment reserves to the people arms equal to those carried by the uniformed government forces, given that the purpose of the Second Amendment is not hunting or target shooting but arming the people against the rise of tyranny.

This bill proves that tyranny is alive and well in Sodom on the Potomac. This bill proves that Congress has gone off the Constitutional reservation they are supposed to confine themselves to, and by that act have proven that they are no longer the legal and legitimate government of this nation. As a result, the American people are under no legal or moral obligation to obey such a government, pay its bills, or sacrifice the lives of their children in the government's wars of conquest!

"The Constitution preserves "the advantage of being armed which Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation. . . (where) the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms." -- The Federalist, No. 46 - James Madison

"[I]f circumstances should at any time oblige the government to form an army of any magnitude, that army can never be formidable to the liberties of the people while there is a large body of citizens, little if at all inferior to them in discipline and the use of arms, who stand ready to defend their rights and those of their fellow citizens." -- The Federalist, No. 29 - Alexander Hamilton

"[A]rms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property. . . Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them." -- Thoughts On Defensive War, 1775 - Thomas Paine

"What, sir, is the use of militia? It is to prevent the establishment of a standing army, the bane of liberty. . . Whenever Government means to invade the rights and liberties of the people, they always attempt to destroy the militia, in order to raise a standing army upon its ruins." -- Debate, U.S. House of representatives, August 17, 1789 - Elbridge Gerry

"The great object is, that every man be armed." - Patrick Henry

"That the people have a Right to mass and to bear arms; that a well regulated militia composed of the Body of the people, trained to arms, is the proper natural and safe defense of a free State..." - George Mason

"Are we at last brought to such an humiliating and debasing degradation that we cannot be trusted with arms for our own defense? Where is the difference between having our arms under our own possesion and under our own direction, and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands?" - Patrick Henry

"Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect every one who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined.... O sir, we should have fine times, indeed, if to punish tyrants, it were only sufficient to assemble the people!" - Patrick Henry

"No free government was ever founded or ever preserved its liberty, without uniting the characters of the citizen and soldier in those destined for the defense of the state.... Such are a well regulated militia, composed of the freeholders, citizen and husbandman, who take up arms to preserve their property, as individuals, and their rights as freemen." - State Gazette (Charleston), September 8, 1788

"While the people have property, arms in their hands, and only a spark of noble spirit, the most corrupt Congress must be mad to form any project of tyranny." - Rev. Nicholas Collin, Fayetteville Gazette (N.C.), October 12, 1789

"And that the said Constitution be never construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the press, or the rights of conscience; or to prevent the people of the United States, who are peacable citizens, from keeping their own arms; or to raise standing armies, unless necessary for the defense of the United States, or of some one or more of them; or to prevent teh people from petitioning, in a peacable and orderly manner, the federal legislature, for a redress of grievances; or to subject the people to unreasonable searches and seizures of their persons, papers or possesions." - Samuel Adams, Debates of the Massachusetts Convention of 1788

"A militia when properly formed are in fact the people themselves . . . and include all men capable of bearing arms. . . To preserve liberty it is essential that the whole body of people always possess arms... The mind that aims at a select militia, must be influenced by a truly anti-republican principle." -- "... whereas, to preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them..." - Richard H. Lee, Additional Letters from the Federal Farmer 53, 1788

"... of the liberty of conscience in matters of religious faith, of speech and of the press; of the trail by jury of the vicinage in civil and criminal cases; of the benefit of the writ of habeas corpus; of the right to keep and bear arms.... If these rights are well defined, and secured against encroachment, it is impossible that government should ever degenerate into tyranny." - James Monroe

"The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government." (Thomas Jefferson Papers p. 334, 1950)

DOJ suspends asset forfeiture profit-sharing with local police, cites budget cuts

The Department of Justice has announced a moratorium on splitting gains made from its civil asset forfeiture program with local law enforcement. Budget cuts of $1.2 billion made keeping the practice “impossible,” the DOJ said, upsetting police groups. While federal agencies such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Drug Enforcement Administration, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and the US Marshals will continue using the legal tool, the“equitable sharing payments” will not return until “a later date should the budget picture improve,” according to the DOJ.

If We Don't Change the Way Money Is Created and Distributed, We Change Nothing

The only real solution in my view is to create and distribute money at the base of the pyramid rather than to those in the top of the pyramid. Many well-intended people want to reform the status quo for all sorts of worthy reasons: to reduce wealth inequality, restore democracy, create good-paying jobs, and so on. All these goals are laudable, but if we don't change the way money is created and distributed, nothing really changes: wealth inequality will keep rising, governance will remain a bidding process of the wealthy, wages will continue stagnating, etc.

BANK OF AMERICA CENSORS JOURNALIST ON TWITTER

The founding editor of Business Insider UK, Jim Edwards, has had two tweets removed by Twitter at the request of Bank of America Merrill Lynch (BAML). Jim claims that in an e-mail from Bank of America, the bank threatened to remove the editor’s Twitter if he “kept it up.”

While this is only two tweets, there is a principle at stake. Investment banks apparently have the power to censor journalists on Twitter, simply by asking.

In the tweets Edwards had quoted a research document produced by analyst Teo Lasarte at Bank of America. One of the tweets was recoverable – which reads: “BAML’s Teo Lasarte is developing a pun-based method for analyzing auto stocks.” On Business Insider Jim Edwards continues:

DID EX CIA DIRECTOR WILLIAM CASEY REALLY SAY THIS?

“We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false.”

An interesting topic was posted over at AboveTopSecret.com (ATS) discussing the origins of an infamous quote attributed to a CIA Director.

William Casey was the 13th CIA Director appointed by President Reagan from 1981 until he left in January 1987. Not long after his retirement he died of a brain tumor in May 1987.

During his tenure at the CIA, Casey played a large role shaping Reagan’s foreign policy – particular Reagan’s approach to the Soviet Union. Casey strongly believed that the Soviet Union was the source of most of the terrorist activity in the world.

But did former CIA Director William Casey really say these words? ATS member Sublimecraft points us to this Quora posting.

TSA HIT WITH LAWSUIT AFTER NIXING BODY SCANNER OPT OUT

The TSA has been hit with a lawsuit just days after it quietly introduced new rules that banned the ability of travelers to opt out of the agency’s controversial naked body scanners.

“In a document published earlier this month, the Department of Homeland Security outlined an update to the Advanced Imagery Technology protocols used by the TSA at US airports, adding a clause which allows officers to insist travelers go through the controversial machines,”reported SlashGear.

The federal agency now insists it has the right to “direct mandatory AIT screening for some passengers,” even if they refuse.

Activist Jonathan Corbett, who famously exposed TSA body scanners to becompletely uselessin detecting items concealed in hidden pockets, wasted no time infiling a lawsuitin an attempt to restore a traveler’s right to opt out of the scanner.

Webmaster's Commentary:

TSA Doesn’t Care That Its Luggage Locks Have Been Hacked

In a spectacular failure of a “back door” designed to give law enforcement exclusive access to private places, hackers have made the “master keys” for Transportation Security Administration-recognized luggage locks available to anyone with a 3D printer.

The TSA-recognized luggage locks were a much-vaunted solution to a post-9/11 conundrum: how to let people lock their luggage, on the one hand, but let the TSA inspect it without resorting to bolt cutters, on the other.

When the locks were first introduced in 2003, TSA official Ken Lauterstein described them as part of the agency’s efforts to develop “practical solutions that contribute toward our goal of providing world-class security and world-class customer service.”

Now that they’ve been hacked, however, TSA says it doesn’t really care one way or another.

More than 3,200 US prisoners have been released early because of a software glitch.

The bug miscalculated the sentence reductions prisoners in Washington state had received for good behaviour.

State officials said that many early-release prisoners would have to return to jail to finish their sentences.

A lawmaker from the ruling Socialist Party has likened one proposed change to a Nazi-era policy used against Jews.

If the amendments are approved, Amnesty says, they would “allow authorities to continue using state of emergency measures for a further six months after the end of a state of emergency.”

UK Muslims with Disneyland plans: We were barred from plane due to religion

A Muslim man in London says his family was barred because of their religion from boarding a plane bound for Los Angeles, where they planned to visit Disneyland with their children.

On December 15, the extended family waited at the gate. Their bags were on the plane. The family included Mohammad Tariq Mahmood with two of his children; his brother Zahid and sister-in-law Sadaf, with five of their children; and two nieces who were accompanying them.

While they waited to board the plane, Mohammad Mahmood was called on the intercom and told that at least some of the family would not be allowed to board. They were not given a reason for the ban, according to Mahmood. Their bags were removed from the plane, and they were ordered to return all the duty-free goods they had purchased, and then escorted from the airport.

A U.S. official on Wednesday told CNN that not all family members were prevented from traveling, but did not specify who would have been permitted to travel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

On reading the story, it does not appear that religion was the issue, but a botched entry in the no-fly list that confused a member of the family with another individual. The US Government screwed up. Not surprising when you recall the history of Obamacare, the NSA's inability to find real criminals and terrorists, not to mention human-caused global warming and being mired in mideast wars 7 years after the original plan was supposed to be completed!

If the US Government were honorable, they would provide first-class travel for that family to visit Disneyland, all costs covered. But they aren't, so they won't. They will go on saying that blocking these kids from visiting Disneyland is in "accordance with policy and procedure" and act like they did nothing wrong at all. And that too is a hallmark of fascism.

Empire of Chaos preparing for more fireworks in 2016

In his seminal 'Fall of Rome: And the End of Civilization,' Bryan Ward-Perkins writes, "Romans before the fall were as certain as we are today that their world would continue forever... They were wrong. We would be wise not to repeat their complacency.”

The Empire of Chaos, today, is not about complacency. It’s about hubris – and fear. Ever since the start of the Cold War the crucial question has been who would control the great trading networks of Eurasia - or the “heartland”, according to Sir Halford John Mackinder (1861–1947), the father of geopolitics.

We could say that for the Empire of Chaos, the game really started with the CIA-backed coup in Iran in 1953, when the US finally encountered, face to face, that famed Eurasia crisscrossed for centuries by the Silk Road(s), and set out to conquer them all.

The Coming Saudi Crack-up?

President Obama, like generations of Western leaders, has coddled the oil-rich Saudi monarchy by tolerating its reactionary politics, its financing of radical Islam and its military support for Sunni jihadist terrorism. But the spoiled Saudi leaders may finally be going too far, as Daniel Lazare describes.

After meeting with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, he promised to intensify efforts to topple Syrian President Bashar al-Assad by increasing aid to Al Nusra, Al Qaeda’s official Syrian affiliate. A few weeks later, he assembled a coalition of nine Sunni Arab states to launch nightly bombing raids on Yemen, quickly reducing one of the poorest countries in the Middle East to ruin.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In geopolitics, one is definitely known by the company one keeps.

I have a very smart cousin, a professor emeritus of Constitutional Law, who has frequently remarked that if the US government spent just a fraction of what we have spent on these endless wars on workable, renewable energy, that we wouldn't be in the pickle we're in regarding our "friends" in the Middle East, including the Al-Khalifa Sunni monarchy in Bahrain.

At this point, Saudi Arabia has really morphed into a "frenemy", and the myopic US State Department is certainly culpable here, for enabling that to happen.

Republican Candidates Defend Killing Civilians To Fight Terrorism – and So Do Democrats

There's a bipartisan effort to justify the killing of civilians in the "war on terrorism."

There has been a lot of consternation expressed in the media at a series of statements by Republican presidential candidates during their most recent debate and elsewhere in which a number of them appeared to be advocating the large-scale killing of civilians through aerial bombardment as a legitimate means of defeating the so-called “Islamic State.” (ISIS or IS)

These statements did not simply rationalize military operations that result in large numbers of civilian deaths, which politicians in both parties have supported for decades, but actually advocate the killing of civilians as a legitimate tactic in counter-terrorism warfare.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Whether Democrats or Republicans, both parties are owned by the death machine of the military industrial complex; unfortunately, without other candidates as alternatives, no matter who Americans vote for next year, they will be voting for more wars, more deaths, and more maimings of Americans to ultimately enhance the bottom line of American and multinational corporations.

Michigan Leftist Kicked out of Trump Rally Also Mentioned Muslims, New Jersey and 9/11, But Insists That The Dancing Israelis Story Is An "Anti-Semitic, Racist, Urban Legend"

Believe it or not, I was not the only person who confronted Donald Trump about his alleged "thousands of Muslims cheering on 9/11." Early in Trump's speech, a soft-spoken man in his 20's had stood up from the bleachers and told Trump that it's not true that thousands of Muslims were cheering on 9/11 in New Jersey. He was quickly ejected without incident, but I found him afterwards and interviewed him. He said that he would not use the term 'Jew,' that that is 'anti-Semitic,' and that it is "our duty as white people to fight white racism." He told me that he doesn't support Israel, and has a lot of anti-Zionist Jewish friends. He had never heard of the Jews arrested on 9/11, insisting that sounds like another "anti-Semitic, racist urban legend." You just CAN'T make this stuff up!

Why Jeb Bush's Attacks on Donald Trump Miss Their Mark

***
After first trying to ignore the billionaire bigot, and then getting humiliated by him, Jeb is now making his willingness to stand up to Trump the centerpiece of his campaign. He’s just released an ad entitled “The Only One,” in which he slams Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and Chris Christie (a sure sign that Christie’s surge in New Hampshire is real) for not attacking Trump. By contrast, the ad shows Jeb lustily going after the GOP frontrunner, while words like “chaos candidate,” “unhinged,” and “liberal” flash onto the screen.

At first glance, this seems laudable. But there are a couple of problems. For starters, >>>

Why There’s Not a Dime’s Worth of Difference Between Any of Them (Democrats and Republicans)

The late Senator Everett Dirksen once said “there’s not a dimes worth of difference” between the Democrats and Republicans in Congress. The subsequent four decades since he made that remark have certainly proven his prescience. The current “Paul Ryan budget,” which seems to have been written, line by line, by Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, is slam-dunk proof of Senator Dirksen’s observation.

Trump's Response To "Israel Did 9/11" Front Row Anti-Zionist Heckler (WRH Member) Is Almost More Interesting Than The Heckle Itself

So I'm shouting at the top of my lungs five feet away from Trump "HEY- YOU LISTEN TO ME TRUMP! ISRAEL DID 9/11, YOU GOT IT TRUMP? FIVE JEWS WERE ARRESTED IN NEW JERSEY, NOT MUSLIMS. ISRAEL DID 9/11! THE DANCING ISRAELIS!"

And he stops his speech, listens to me, and replies "He's all right. He's okay... He's very committed, He's got a lot of energy. He's on our side." The news footage video shows the whole speech, and all of the remarks that Trump is making about me as I am shouting. I find Trump's remarks VERY interesting. Keep in mind, to several of the other protesters who disrupted his speech that very same night, Trump called them 'Losers,' 'weak,' and 'get them out of here.' But me, he said I could stay. WHY?

ANALYSIS: Chipotle is a victim of corporate sabotage... biotech industry food terrorists are planting e.coli in retaliation for restaurant's anti-GMO menu

After observing recent events involving Chipotle and e.coli, here's my analysis of the situation: Chipotle's e.coli outbreaks are not random chance. They are the result of the biotech industry unleashing bioterrorism attacks against the only fast food company that has publicly denounced GMOs.

How do we know? The CDC has already admitted that some of these e.coli outbreaks involve a "rare genetic strain" of e.coli not normally seen in foods. Furthermore, we also know the track record of the biotech industry engaging in the most criminal, dirty, sleazebag tactics imaginable against any person or company that speaks out against GMOs.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I agree. Prior to the non-GMO announcement by Chipotle, they never had any problems. Now it's happening to their restaurants all across America and the media gives it non-stop coverage. It is obvious this is a deliberate attack by the GMO industry desperate to make the public think that non-GMO is more dangerous than GMO, and send a warning to other restaurants and supermarkets to ignore consumer demand for non-GMO safe food and peddle the frankenfood without complaint!

It’s Official: Over A Trillion Dollars A Year Will Be Added To The Debt During Obama’s Presidency

Under Barack Obama, the U.S. national debt has risen from $10,626,877,048,913.08 on January 20th, 2009 to $18,795,033,928,275.59 on December 21st, 2015. That means that the debt that we are passing on to future generations has increased by 8.16 trillion dollars since Barack Obama was inaugurated. There is still a little more than a year to go in Obama’s presidency, and it is already guaranteed that Obama will add more than a trillion dollars a year to the national debt during his presidency.

Parents do not have to inform their council that they are educating their children at home, leaving the government in the dark about the number of kids at risk of radicalisation through education at home.

More Blood on Ankara's Hands as Kurdish Civilian Death Toll Mounts

More than 100 civilians have been killed and many more injured in Kurdish areas in Turkey's southeast since July, Human Rights Watch said, warning that civilian casualties are likely to rise in the coming days.

The region has been the scene of clashes between Turkish security forces and fighters from the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) following the collapse of a ceasefire between the two groups in July.

A report by the Human Rights Watch on Tuesday urged Turkish authorities to scale back security operations in the southeast.

"The Turkish government should rein in its security forces, immediately stop abusive and disproportionate use of force, and investigate the deaths and injuries caused by its operations," HRW senior Turkey researcher Emma Sinclair-Webb said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Prime Minister Erdogan: it is high time for both the Kurdish leadership and you to sit down, negotiate, and stop this murderous war.

This is a no-win situation, and both sides must understand, for the sake of their people, and the sake of this world, that there has to be some kind of rapprochement between them. 30 years of war have produced nothing but...more war.

Seymour Hersh Bombshell: US Military Shared Intelligence With Assad In Defiance Of Obama, CIA

Back in May, Seymour Hersh upended the “official” narrative surrounding the death of Osama bin Laden and in the process created a media firestorm prompting a response from the White House.

The explosive revelations about the events that ultimately led to bin Laden’s demise came a year-and-a-half after Hersh accused the Obama administration of not telling the whole story with regard to an infamous sarin gas attack that nearly served as an excuse for airstrikes against the Assad regime in 2013.

In the six months since Hersh’s bin Laden story made international headlines, the war in Syria has escalated meaningfully. Indeed, the country is now the theatre for what amounts to World War III with the US, France, Britain, Russia, Iran, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Iraq all involved either directly or indirectly.

Vulnerable homeless men and women in Los Angeles could die in El Nino rainstorms

Los Angeles is grappling with a huge homelessness problem; the number of people living on the streets is estimated at about 44,000. Many of them are concentrated in Skid Row – a 54-block area of downtown LA that has become synonymous with homelessness and poverty. More and more can be seen across the sprawling metropolis of some 10 million people, sheltering under highway overpasses, or in ragged tent encampments, or in cars and motorhomes lining the streets.

The outlook for the next few months is bleak, as El Nino weather patterns are likely to bring torrential downpours, adding to the misery of the thousands of people sleeping in flimsy tents and rusty old vehicles.

Israeli attacks on a dissident soldiers’ group could backfire

Yehuda Shaul was an infantryman in the Israeli army in Hebron during the second intifada. But in recent weeks, he and his group of veterans have been vilified by right-wing organizations and mainstream politicians in a public campaign against Israeli groups critical of their country’s occupation of Palestinian territories.

Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon forbade serving Israeli military personnel from cooperating or meeting with representatives of Shaul’s group, Breaking the Silence (BTS). Education Minister Naftali Bennet issued a similar order to all public schools. And right-wing advocacy group Im Tirzu published a report accusing most Israeli human rights groups of being “foreign agents” because of the funding they receive from friendly states. That report was accompanied by a video and an advertising campaign accusing specific human rights activists of “defending terrorists” and “representing foreign interests.” Those named all received death threats after the ads.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yehuda Shaul and BTS are to be commended for their nothing less than heroic efforts to get the truth to be told to Israeli civilians.

Well done, Mr. Shaul, and all the members of BTS: please continue to stand your ground, because both Israel and the world desperately need you to continue this work.

Obama Accuses Trump of Exploiting Working-Class Fears

President Obama said in a radio interview that began airing on Monday that Donald J. Trump, a leading contender for the Republican presidential nomination, was exploiting the resentment and anxieties of working-class men to boost his campaign. Mr. Obama also argued that some of the scorn directed at him personally stemmed from the fact that he is the first African-American to hold the White House.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Is this President Obama's, "NEVER take responsibility for anything negative on my watch" 'let them eat cake' moment?!?

And Mr. President, I would strongly suggest that it is not the color of your skin, but the content of your character which has created many of those fears, and real concerns, with which working people are living, IF they are even lucky enough to still have a job.

I have personally been very lucky in my life; I have found a market niche where I cannot be outsourced or offshored; and under your watch, offshoring/outsourcing of jobs continues apace, with no respite in sight.

The increase in the number of children slipping into poverty under your watch,sir, has been nothing less than staggering. As reported at the washingtonexaminer.com on July 21, 2015:

Ever since President Obama took office, the poverty rate among children has soared to 22 percent, with three million more children living in poor conditions, according to an authoritative new report released Tuesday. The 2015 "KIDS COUNT" report from the Annie E. Casey Foundation said that the percentage of children living in poverty jumped from 18 percent in 2008, the year Obama was elected, to 22 percent in 2013. It added that the rate dropped from 2012 to 2013, in line with the improving economy.

These are numbers one cannot wish away, sir.

More families are dependent on food stamps than ever before; as reported at iwb.com on 22 September, 2015:

Now, first and foremost, understand that the notion the economy “is improving” is just nonsensical. Consider: — More Americans are now on food stamps as a percentage of the population than at any time in U.S. history, according to data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. In all, 20 percent of U.S. households, or one in five, are on some level of taxpayer-supported food assistance. — The poverty level in America under Obama broke a 50-year record in January 2014. “Fifty years after President Johnson started a $20 trillion taxpayer-funded war on poverty, the overall percentage of impoverished people in the U.S. has declined only slightly and the poor have lost ground under President Obama,” wrote Dave Boyer for The Washington Times. The poverty rate has stood at 15 percent for three consecutive years, the first time that has happened since the mid-1960s. — The real unemployment rate, influential Wall Street analyst David John Marotta said in a memo to clients in January 2014, was not the 5-6 percent that the Obama Administration claims, but more like an astounding 37.2 percent, according to his calculations. “The unemployment rate only describes people who are currently working or looking for work,” he and colleague Megan Russell reveal in their client report, which was leaked to the Washington Examiner.

Again, Mr. President, one cannot wish these numbers away.

And in terms of middle class job declines due to outsourcing/offshoring under Obama's watch, what can we expect with TTP?!?

As reported on December 7th, 2015, at economyincrisis.org:

Those in favor of TPP are in it for the money. The true people in favor of the TPP are hiding behind names that sound harmless. Names such as: The U.S. Business Coalition for TPP Trade Benefits America Coalition The Progressive Coalition for American Jobs The TPP Apparel Coalition But if we take a closer look at the “members” of these coalitions, we don’t see anyone else except for the 1 percent of America. Huge multinational corporations such as: Aflac McGraw Hill MetLife, Inc. Motorola Solutions, Inc. Apple Inc The Clorox Company Siemens Corporation Sony Exxon Mobil Corporation Gap Inc. General Mills, Inc. Hewlett-Packard The Home Depot Honda North America, Inc Johnson & Johnson JPMorgan Chase & Co. Kraft Foods Group, Inc. Liberty Mutual Group Whirlpool Corporation The Walt Disney Company Verizon Communications Tyson Food Inc. Toyota Target Corporation The truth of the matter is that this these multinationals are are pushing the TPP in order to save a buck. They will outsource their jobs in order to save on production and labor costs. The federal minimum wage in America is $7.25 per hour which is roughly $267.80 a week. Compare that to Malaysia’s minimum wage at $297 a month. The average wage for an an engineer in the U.S. is $87,140 but in Malaysia it’s $23,484. The average wage for an accountant in the U.S. is $73,670, in Malaysia it’s $16,263. The average factory worker salary in the U.S. is $36,000, in Malaysia it’s $19,308. We can clearly see the huge difference is labor costs between the U.S. and one of the trading partners in the TPP. That isn’t mentioning Vietnam, Brunei, Singapore, Peru and Chile who also have low wages in comparison to the U.S. So how exactly is this going to be “good” for America and American jobs? It’s not.

In conclusion, Mr. President, your faux populism act not withstanding, you stand against the very people you promised to help and, at the end of the day, are no less beholden to the corporate interests which got you elected than are your Republican colleagues; that is simply the honest, unvarnished truth.

All the above, coupled with your international aggression against countries like Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan; the potential and current provocations against Russia and China; the fact that a bill to re- institute the draft (which will include women), has been introduced in the house and is still sitting in committee, makes working class Americans legitimately very nervous about the future of this country.

Leaders who break nearly every promise they have made to the American people, and lie so consistently that one cannot believe anything they say anymore, makes the working class Americans legitimately very nervous about the future of this country.

This has nothing to do with racism, and everything to do with a completely failed presidency, sir; we had all hoped for far better from you when you won your first term in office.

Coincidence? Assassin shoots witness, others in danger after agreeing to testify against Detroit cops

Would-be assassin attempted to gun down a witness who agreed to testify against police officers in Detroit, a report revealed this week.

The Detroit News obtained court records on Monday that indicated the lives of several witnesses had been threatened days after they agreed to testify against Detroit narcotics officers Lt. David “Hater” Hansberry and Bryan “Bullet” Watson.

Hansberry and Watson have been accused of using fake traffic stops to steal drugs, money and other property. Prosecutors said that the officers distributed stolen cocaine to known drug dealers who then agreed to split the profits with them.

A court transcript indicated that U.S. Attorney Louis Gabel objected to repeated efforts to delay the trial because of “legitimate witness safety concerns.”

Gabel explained to U.S. District Judge Stephen Murphy during a sidebar that one of the witnesses had already been shot and others were in danger.

Green Gestapo: TV programs that mock global warming being memory holed by governments to erase any trace of their existence

The only way the cabal of global warming/climate change hoaxers can be heard, is by silencing anyone with countermanding evidence that the hoaxers are lying to the entire planet. One of the cultist cabal's latest victims of the "green Gestapo" is Britain's Quentin Letts.

As he explains in a story at The Daily Mail, what happened to him was a bit like what happened to a member of the Soviet-era Politburo who had fallen out of favor with then-Premier Josef Stalin in 1940, shortly before World War II began in earnest in Europe.

Using a concept that George Orwell – author of the forward-looking 1984 – created, namely the "unperson," described as "someone who had so offended official thought, he or she was vaporised — not just liquidated but wiped from the record for eternity," Letts wrote that he had been treated similarly by a British media icon for questioning global warming orthodoxy.

All back doors will do is allow the government to spy on law abiding citizens. As we proved with our encryption challenges, it is trivial for criminals and terrorists to create new methods of encryption the NSA cannot break. And the Paris Attackers were not even using encryption at all!

Could You Pass Harvard's Entrance Exam From 1869?

Could you pass Harvard's entrance exam from 1869? Could the special snowflakes who have been told they are great for showing up do it? I think you know the answer. You better know Greek, Latin, Math (no calculator for you!) and much more. We are pretty sure that the hacks who have tenure in the oppression studies departments can't pass this exam. Anyway, this 8 page PDF exam proves: the Department of Education hasn't made education better. Look how high education standards were before federal government involvement in education.

Must Watch Video – U.S. Senator Issues Dire Warning on Unchecked Executive Power

To hear a U.S. Senator sound more like a statesman than a corrupt hack politician for sale to the highest bidder, is such a breath of fresh air I almost can’t believe it’s real. Rather than talking down to voters, he challenges them to become more enlightened, nonpartisan-thinkers with a sense of history. He challenges all of us to shake ourselves from an ignorant, fear-based stupor and reclaim the true genius and beauty at the heart of the American experiment.

6 US Troops Killed in Afghanistan Suicide Bombing, Official Says

A suicide bombing near Bagram Airfield in Afghanistan killed six U.S. troops and wounded two other Americans and an interpreter, a senior U.S. defense official confirms to Fox News.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the bombing, which was the largest attack on foreign troops in Afghanistan since August.

It happened at around 1.30 p.m. local time in the vicinity of Bagram, the largest U.S. military facility in Afghanistan, according to U.S. Army Brig. Gen William Shoffner.

Cop Says Life “Ruined” After Pointing AR-15 At Journalists Saying, “I’m Going To F***Ing Kill You!”

A petulant public servant is now playing the role of ‘victim’ after he pointed his AR-15 at Free Thought Project live streamer, Rebel Z, aka John Zeigler.

The entire incident was caught on film, showing St. Ann police officer, Ray Albers with his gun raised pointing it directly at Zeigler, who was live streaming at the time.

“Oh my God, gun raised, gun raised,” stated Zeigler.

“My hands are up bro, my hands are up,” he says before Albers responds, “I’m going to f***ing kill you, get back, get back!”

FLASHBACK - THE HILLARY EMAIL SCANDAL - THE SCANDALS BEHIND THE SCANDAL

There is a term of craft in Propaganda called a "Limited Hangout." This refers to admitting to a smaller scandal as a distraction from the larger scandal that must remain hidden.

See how it works?

Good.

Because it appears we are in the middle of yet another limited hangout, in which the public furor over the questionable use of a private email server by Hillary Clinton may be concealing far greater and darker secrets!

Let us start with the email server issue itself.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

BUMP TO THEW TOP

PLEASE FORWARD AND REPOST

When I first wrote this article, I suggested two potential scandals lurking behind Hillary's email server. The first was covert arming of ISIS and Al Qaeda by the US Government (or at least by Hillary). The second was the likely possibility that Hillary was using her weak email server and "charitable" foundation to stage a repeat of the "Chinagate" secrets-for-campaign-cash scandal.

The first suggested theory has now been confirmed.

Will the same be true for the second?

DID YOU KNOW THE CIA PLANNED A MUSLIM INVASION OF RUSSIA?

According to its own formerly TOP SECRET Central Intelligence Bulletin, dated December 4, 1952, during the waning days of the Harry Truman administration, the Central Intelligence Agency had embarked on a program to foment nationalism among the Uzbek tribes of Afghanistan in order that it might spill across the border into the Uzbek Soviet Socialist Republic, a constituent republic of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. This revelation means that the current attempt by such anti-Russian U.S. official and quasi-official intelligence policy makers, including former Jimmy Carter national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski, hedge fund tycoon George Soros, and CIA director John Brennan, to bring about a radical Muslim destabilization of the Russian Federation is nothing new.

THE HTTP 451 ERROR CODE FOR CENSORSHIP IS NOW AN INTERNET STANDARD

The 451 HTTP status code is now official in the eyes of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), the independent organization responsible for many of the internet’s operating standards. Now, when an internet user hits a web page that has been blocked for legal reasons (read: censorship), they may be presented with a 451 error instead of the more generic 403 “forbidden” error. This is a win for transparency. The 451 code has been on the table for two years now, having been first been put forth by software engineer Tim Bray in 2013, who was in turn inspired by a blog post by security thinker Terence Eden.

IS THE DEA STOPPING NARCO-TERROR THREATS OR STAGING THEM?

After 9/11, the Drug Enforcement Administration reframed its mission, warning the country that terrorists had gotten into the illegal drug trade to finance their attacks. This claim gave rise to a little-known statute in the Patriot Act, which authorizes the DEA to pursue people accused of narco-terrorism anywhere in the world, even when none of the alleged activities took place on American soil.

EXCLUSIVE: DHS placing patriots on domestic terror watch lists in unlawful attempt to escalate violent interactions with police

The Department of Homeland Security is intentionally placing local law enforcement in harm's way by knowing (and falsely) entering the license plates of patriot-oriented radio hosts in the federal "terror watch" database. The aim of this tactic is to intentionally cause escalations of high-tension interactions between local police and pro-gun patriots, knowing that local law enforcement will respond to terror watch list hits with an escalated engagement posture involving firearms being drawn and pointed at the suspects.

The answer is simple: DHS is intentionally placing patriots on the terror watch list to get them pulled over and hopefully shot to death by cops. Those who survive the interaction are then "cleared" by DHS, which deems the whole thing an "unfortunate mistake."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One thing good we have living here in Hawaii is very mellow police officers. We don't get the out-of-control behaviors seen on the mainland, and Oahu is a small enough place where people know or know of everyone. Claire and I have a lot of friends who are in HPD, including a neighbor with a one-year old who loves to visit "Auntie Claire and Uncle Mike" (everyone in Hawaii is an uncle and auntie to the keiki). It's the Aloha state, after all!

That being said, the DHS is looking at a PR disaster the moment an independent media host gets gunned down in the streets, because every other independent media host will raise a huge public stink about it!

An Xmas Message From Satan - "Ignorance, My Poor Dear Americans, Will Not Save You"

As you know, this time of year usually finds me quite despondent, as the Prince of Peace's influence waxes most atrociously around his birthday. But this year I am in fine spirits, nay, let me even declare myself absolutely giddy, for the destruction of the United States of America by its own citizenry and government draws ever nearer.

Though my minions have long sown festering seeds of hate and disharmony in that now-benighted land, my favored weapons of destruction--leverage, debt, half-truths and endless, self-serving justifications for greed, sloth, lust, pride, envy, anger and gluttony--have wormed their way into the stricken heart of that Republic and are now the default setting of American culture.

? CENTRAL BANKS HAVE PUSHED THE MIDDLE CLASS DOWN INTO NEOFEUDAL SERFDOM

The injustice of central-bank enforced neofeudalism cannot be suppressed like interest rates.

In traditional feudal systems, serfs were the landless peasantry who worked the land of their feudal lords in exchange for protection. In our present-day neofeudal system, serfdom has a different definition: present-day serfs own little or no productive capital and have few opportunities to ever acquire any.

Shocking video 'captures cops shooting dead an unarmed and handcuffed man, 23, then planting a gun beside him'

Graphic new cellphone video has emerged which appears to show cops shooting dead a 23-year-old cyclist as he lay handcuffed on the ground.

Noel Aguilar was killed by Los Angeles County deputies Albert Murad and Jose Ruiz in 2014 who claimed that they shot him after he tried to grab one of their guns. They also alleged Aguilar had a loaded weapon.

Now footage of the incident, dropped off anonymously at the attorney's office for the suspect's family, appears to show the two officers shooting Aguilar while he was lying face down on the ground with his hands cuffed behind him.

Guizar also claims footage shows one of the deputies planting a weapon on the ground next to Aguilar before taking out another gun and shooting him, the Press Telegram reports.

TX school calendar features Kwanzaa, Hanukkah — but no Christmas

Parents in Katy, Texas are questioning why the junior high school calendar features Kwanzaa, and Hanukkah, but neglects to mention Christmas. The criticism comes after West Junior High School seventh-grader Jordan Wooley told the school board in October that a teacher required students to deny God is real as part of a graded reading assignment. Katy Independent School District Superintendent Alton Frailey initially apologized to Wooley, then called a press conference the next day alleging she’s a liar, prompting several other students to come forward to prove him wrong

A Cybersecurity Bill Loathed By Tech Companies Is Now Law

If you thought the US government’s ability to spy on its citizens had languished of late, think again.

Yesterday, Congress and President Obama approved the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA), a measure that lets private companies turn over consumers’ personal data to Homeland Security, as long as that data meets some broad and vague criteria of relevance to cybersecurity investigations. Homeland Security can then pass said data directly the NSA, the Department of Defense, and the FBI.

Tech companies, civil liberties groups and security experts have all decried this bill. How did it become law? Simple. House Speaker Paul Ryan attached CISA as a rider to the omnibus budget bill, a $1.15 trillion federal spending plan. If Congress and the President hadn’t approved the measure, we would be on the brink of another government shutdown right now.

1-minute video of what most needs to be said: .01% politicians are f**king children, figuratively and literally with ~300 million poverty-murdered since 1995

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

1-minute of biting truth from comedian and talk show host, Adam Hills, with the punchline, “Politicians are fucking children, in every sense”:

https://youtu.be/YArJcth7ywc?t=53s

Adam is speaking truth. Let’s examine the facts of .01% “leaders” figuratively and literally fucking children:

Figuratively: The .01% commit Crimes Against Humanity through intentional policy to poverty-murder children.

“Crimes against humanity” include any of the following acts committed as part of a widespread or systematic attack directed against any civilian population, with knowledge of the attack:
murder;
extermination;
enslavement;…
the crime of apartheid;
other inhumane acts of a similar character intentionally causing great suffering or serious bodily or mental injury.
