US Boots in Iraq and Baltics, Authorization to Attack Syria…and US Troops in Ukraine!

As the NATO summit in Wales kicks off today, with an expected agreement to create a “spearhead” force of up to 5,000 troops to rapidly deploy to any “hotspot” in eastern Europe, we learn that the US will also send several hundred troops to participate in NATO military exercises in Ukraine later this month. The exercises, provocatively named “Rapid Trident,” are said to be “a sign of the commitment of NATO states to support non-NATO member Ukraine…”

Kiev Coup is Collapsing

Kiev’s casualties have been high, and the stories we have about the Ukrainian army field care are just horrible — like amputations without anesthetic, and wounded soldiers being exploited to pay for supplies and care. Those fortunate enough to have families that could come to get them have brought the stories of corruption and incompetency back to the rear areas. The result was the big protests we saw in Kiev this week. We even have reports of masses of women lying down in the streets to block convoys.

In the middle of all of this, Poroshenko invented a new democracy tactic, dismissing Parliament to eliminate his opposition. This also killed any official calls for investigations into the ongoing strategy debacle. Entire brigades have started to desert now, with the Palace Guard special forces (who have not been fighting) being sent out to try to round them up. That is a precursor to a real civil war, if those units can get to a supply base.

California's Man-Made Drought

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

Helmetta council mulls photo limits following cop video scandal

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

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

Operation Choke Point could soon grip casinos

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

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

Climate sceptics should be 'crushed and buried': Sir Paul Nurse attacks politicians who 'distort' facts on global warming

Politicians who do not believe in climate change should be 'crushed and buried', according to the new president of the British Science Association.

Sir Paul Nurse, who starts his presidency next week, pledged to 'take on' the 'serial offenders' who he accused of cherry picking scientific facts to suit their arguments.

In an extraordinary outburst, Sir Paul accused those who refuse to accept scientific orthodoxy on global warming of 'distorting' the facts.

Emergency Motion Filed To Block BLM Horse Roundup

“It is undisputed that this proposed roundup will remove hundreds of wild horses from public lands and that BLM has not even purported to comply with any of the statutory requirements set forth by Congress in … the Wild Free-Roaming Horses and Burros Act…, which are mandatory prerequisites before a single wild horse may be removed from public lands. This is the first time in its more than four decades of implementing the [Wild Horse Act] that BLM has sought to remove wild horses from public land without first complying with the express statutory dictates of [the law] and without conducting any environmental analysis whatsoever under the National Environmental Policy Act.

Accordingly, the decision under review involves important legal questions …, the resolution of which will have profound implications for BLM’s future management of our nation’s federally protected wild horses.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

WORLD EXCLUSIVE: STEVEN SOTLOFF’S LINKS TO MOSSAD & CIA

Sotloff’s close links to Israeli counter-intelligence, emergence from same stable as Foley, and equally amazing ability to be ‘on the spot’ to cover Black Arts events in Middle East
That Steven Sotloff is Jewish isn’t exactly a secret. But what many media titles this morning have glossed over is that he studied at Tel Aviv’s Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya (IDC) before beginning his career. Located on the same campus at the core of of IDCs philosophy is the International Institute for Counter Terrorism. Its links to Mossad are well known. The Slog tries to join up some dots.

Having watched the second ‘beheading’ video and looked into Mr Sotloff’s background, my aim – as with James Foley’s apparent execution – is to offer key observations that I find significant:

Over the past decade, it has become a dangerous behemoth of fascism under the guise of the fraudulent “war on terror.”

MasterCard-backed biometric ID system launched in Nigeria

Although a handful of countries already use biometric identification systems, Nigeria's will be unique as its pilot program will be branded with MasterCard logos. The program will eventually be expanded to encompass the rest of the country's adult population, and the BBC says that all Nigerians will be required to have such a card by 2019 if they wish to vote in the country's upcoming elections

Goon Thugs and Gullible Conservatives — Paul Craig Roberts

conclusion: It has long been known that power attracts bullies and psychopaths and that the less
accountable power is the more unrestrained its use will be. Given this fact, it is impossible to comprehend the stupidity of government that gave the go ahead to the militarization of the police. The police are taught that their lives are so important–exceptional lives–that no risk whatsoever must be taken with them, even when confronting elderly women and children.

The consequence of this training is to elevate the role of violence in police encounters. The police are trained to ensure that the citizen bears all the risks of a police confrontation even in instances in which citizens are incapable of harming the police.

In my opinion, it was a felony to train police to abuse their authority and the public. We need to find out who is responsible and to bring class action suits seeking restitution against the criminals who trained the police to become a deadly threat to the public.

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

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

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

Police Arrest Young Black Politician For Distributing Voting Rights Leaflets

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

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

Nato Plans 'Spearhead' Force To Face Russia

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

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

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

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

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

Webmaster's Commentary: 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Totalitarian Collectivism

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

Galloway criticizes Westminster’s silence

Speaking for the first time after the assault, Galloway told the Press TV correspondent in London that “It is an attack on parliament, it is an attack on democracy and it is an attack on my constituents, not just the geographic constituency of Bradford West, though it is, but the wider constituency that I speak for, which is, by anybody’s reckoning, some millions of people, all of whom have the right to be represented, all of whom have the right to have their view represented without being clubbed down in the street.”

Most corrupt ‘teaching’ union ever: Democratic & Republican Parties unioned with corporate media

*hyperlinks live at source*

Teaching is the art and science of people seeing/learning reality for themselves. Once ignited, passion for learning becomes a life-long expression.

Our Orwellian world of the present witnesses a union of “leaders” in government and corporate media “teaching” the 99% public that what’s good are:

Unlawful war-murders,
our economy,
corporate media journalism.

This Government/Media Union is not teaching, but herding the public into chosen areas of propaganda, as the above links easily explain, document, and prove. Government/Media “teaching” has an academic term thanks to Princeton Professor Harry Frankfurt’s best-selling book on this topic:

Bullsh*t.

Democratic and Republican Party “leaders” with corporate media also increasingly “teach” us that what’s bad are teacher unions, public education, and “non-accountability.”

As a public school teacher of 31 years, I offer these main points of current status:

The Server Needs To Die To Save The Internet

Do we have the Internet we deserve? There’s an argument to say that yes, we absolutely do. Given web users’ general reluctance to pay for content. We are of course, paying. Just not with cold hard cash, but with our privacy — as digital business models rely on gathering and selling intel on their users to make the money to pay (the investors who paid) for the free service.

A UK startup called MaidSafe, based in the small town of Troon in Scotland, reckons the myriad problems with today’s Internet can be linked to a design quirk of its underlying architecture. And that the answer to solving the web’s most perennial issues, such as finding sustainable digital business models for content, safeguarding user data and privacy, and thwarting hacking, malware and overreaching surveillance, is to begin again — with a whole new re-architected Internet.

Police State: US Military Plans to Crush Dissident Political Groups, Target Leaders with Sniper Fire

Links tweeted by WikiLeaks this week called attention to the development of crowd control doctrines by the US military, the most recent of which are codified in a US Army Techniques document dated April 2014, titled “Civil Disturbances.” Main concepts elaborated in the document include crowd dynamics, behavior theories, crowd types, and a “Graduated Response Matrix.”

The document points to various dissident political groups as main targets of the Army’s crowd control planning. “Examples of well-organized groups are anarchists, antiglobalization groups, and anti free enterprise groups,” the US Army document states.

The paper further cites demonstrations coordinated by labor groups, specifically citing the 2011 protests at the Wisconsin capitol. “Labor unions played a large role in the 2011 Wisconsin protests that included passing on information and transporting participants,” the document states.

NAVY Nurse Who Refused To Force Feed Guantanamo Inmates Is Facing Court Martial

Detainees at Guantanamo Bay have been protesting their imprisonment and cruel treatment with ongoing hunger strikes for the past several months, and have been attacked and force fed by guards as a result. These actions were condemned by more that 250 doctors from the UK, the US, Ireland, Germany, Australia, Italy and the Netherlands.

One nurse that was responsible for force feeding the prisoners, recently made news by refusing to do so. For a length of time this nurse obeyed the orders that he was given, but eventually began to regret his actions, and became a conscientious objector. A spokesperson for the NAVY would not release the name of the nurse, nor the details of their case. They only revealed that the nurse was sent home early and that he is currently “pending court martial”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Anyone who has ever had a doctor recommend NG feeding for a period of time understands that, even when done by the gentlest, and most competent medical professionals, the procedure is still rough on the system.

To have this done as punishment for being on a hunger fast, against inhumane conditions, when one has never been convicted of any wrong doing, is reprehensible, immoral, and brutal, and should never be carried out at all.

They may also be forced to leave their home town or city and move away from associates under revived powers to relocate terror suspects.

The U.S. Government Can Brand You a Terrorist Based on a Facebook Post

The US government’s web of surveillance is vast and interconnected. Now we know just how opaque, inefficient and discriminatory it can be.

As we were reminded again just this week, you can be pulled into the National Security Agency’s database quietly and quickly, and the consequences can be long and enduring. Through ICREACH, a Google-style search engine created for the intelligence community, the NSA provides data on private communications to 23 government agencies. More than 1,000 analysts had access to that information.

This kind of data sharing, however, isn’t limited to the latest from Edward Snowden’s NSA files. It was confirmed earlier this month that the FBI shares its master watchlist, the Terrorist Screening Database, with at least 22 foreign governments, countless federal agencies, state and local law enforcement, plus private contractors.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, to all the alphabet soup agencies following my posts on WRH, I will make this simple for you: I am a Christian pacifist who abhors all violence, and encourages real international cooperation as the best possible way of resolving and preventing wars.

Got it?!?!?

Five Cops Caught on Video Using Emergency Lights to Go to Breakfast

Persistent Unemployment Still A Major Problem In The U.S.

While the mainstream media in the U.S. is desperately trying to sell the false narrative that the national economy is “on the rise” again, Iran’s PressTV is more willing to tell us the red pill truth. The fact of the matter is things are really bad, and we are not going through some sort of Cinderella story of economic redemption.

New data shows there is a persistent unemployment problem in the United States. In fact, the number of people relying on the government for food or housing assistance is still at record levels. For those that do have a job, more Americans than ever are dealing with the sobering reality of earning the minimum wage.

Busted! Five Miami Police Caught 'Flashing Emergency Lights' to Get to DONUTS!!!!!

Several Miami police officers are now under investigation after they were caught on camera using their emergency lights on a trip to a local bakery. Many have already began to speculate as to how many officers ordered donuts for breakfast.

A witness spotted five different police cars from multiple departments traveling down Interstate 95 with their emergency lights on, even blocking traffic at some intersections once they got off the highway so all of the officers could stay together.

The witness took video footage on their cell phone camera, and much to their surprise, the officers all turned off their lights and pulled into a local bakery where they all ate breakfast before returning to their cars.

Washington’s Top Ten Favorite Terrorists

While the US government still claims it is fighting a “War on Terror”, it is often forgotten that the US government has a friendly relationship with many terrorist groups around the world. This relationship is not merely historical, but current.

The US government often supports terrorists who are fighting against governments which oppose Wall Street and are seeking to developing independently. Many terrorists, who commit all kinds of violent crimes against humanity, are being directly supported by the US government at this time.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In today's Washington, "our thugs" are tinpot dictators who give not a rat's nether regions for their people, oppress them, and, ultimately, are overthrown by angry citizens who will never trust the US government ever again.

Monsanto has sued farmers for 16 years, never lost a case

Where is the justice? Since 1997, Monsanto has filed 145 lawsuits, or on average about 9 lawsuits every year for 16 straight years, against farmers who have “improperly reused their patented seeds.”

The biotech giant hasn’t lost a single case, either. Not one. This includes when farmers tried to sue Monsanto over cross-pollination of their organic crops with GMO seed. For example, a federal court dismissed one of those cases, saying that it couldn’t protect Monsanto against unfair lawsuits should they side in the farmers’ favor.

What about unfair business practices? What about 92% of people saying they want their food labeled if it contains genetically modified ingredients? What about the right of farmers to grow food from seed that hasn’t been altered to turn it into a DNA freak show?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder just how many congressional representatives Monsanto owns, and how many judges (through sweet stock options)it owns as well.

The Economics Of Perpetual War

Art of War actually states that “no country has ever profited from protracted warfare,” and cautions generals to “fight under Heaven with the paramount aim of ‘preservation.’” Yet as far back as we have historical records, these sorts of ideas have fallen on deaf ears among governments and military organizations alike.

FLASHBACK - The New McCarthyism

Once again vast sums of money are being spent on a war, this time a hot one and getting hotter. Once again parties with a vested interest are out to smear and destroy anyone who dares ask if the wars are worth the sacrifice of our young people (not to mention the money), indeed if there really is any point at all to the wars aside from justifying the flow of money to defense contractors.

But the Soviet Union has gone out of business. The word "communist" doesn't carry the same psychological impact it used to, so the war hawk smear squad has come up with a new one, "Anti-Semite." Like "Communist", "Anti-Semite" is used to ruin the lives of people who have not actually done anything wrong other than to challenge the war profiteers. It is a new word for an old trick, and I am amazed that they are still playing the same old game, but I guess the FBI can always find some dumb-assed idiot to fall for it and do their dirty work of wrecking a career for them.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In the aftermath of Israel's Pyrrhic "victory" in Gaza, there is a new McCarthyism stalking Hollywood intending to punish all those who dared speak out for Palestine, only instead of "communist", the word used to wreck careers is "Anti-Semite!" Film and TV, although no longer the high ground in the war for the minds of Americans, was once dominant, and as such, was a target for political influence of every agenda. Those who go along have good careers. Those who do not are destroyed. That is a fact of life in Hollywood, as the trashing of my own career during the Vincent Foster affair illustrates.

Police State: US Military Plans to Crush Dissident Political Groups, Target Leaders with Sniper Fire

Links tweeted by WikiLeaks this week called attention to the development of crowd control doctrines by the US military, the most recent of which are codified in a US Army Techniques document dated April 2014, titled “Civil Disturbances.” Main concepts elaborated in the document include crowd dynamics, behavior theories, crowd types, and a “Graduated Response Matrix.”

The document points to various dissident political groups as main targets of the Army’s crowd control planning. “Examples of well-organized groups are anarchists, antiglobalization groups, and anti free enterprise groups,” the US Army document states.

Menendez: US should provide arms to Ukraine to fight Russian ‘invasion’

** He advocates that the Ukranian junta should use "lethal" weapons on it`s citizens. **

The chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on Sunday said the U.S. and its allies should provide lethal weapons to Ukraine’s military, calling Russia’s recent incursions into the country an “invasion.”

“This is a watershed moment,” Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) said during an interview from the capital city of Kiev on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “Thousands of Russian troops are here … and they are directly engaged in an invasion.”

President Obama has been reluctant to provide even defensive weapons to Ukraine’s military, believing Kiev had the capabilities to fight pro-Russian separatists in the eastern part of the country.

Menendez said that while that may have been the president’s “initial assessment,” circumstances on the ground today are “dramatically different.”

NSA Expanding Spying Programs With Advanced Capabalities

August 30, 2014 - A US geo-political analyst says the recent report about the National Security Agency (NSA) secretly providing data to nearly two dozen US government agencies via a powerful search engine illustrates how the advancement of technologies has given US intelligence agencies more capability to further expand their vast spying programs.

Citing classified documents provided by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden, The Intercept investigative site reported Monday that the NSA built its own “Google-like” search engine and shares hundreds of billions of digital records with federal law enforcement and several other US government agencies.

Coming to a campus near you: ADL recruits student politicians for Israel trips

As the school year starts, the Anti-Defamation League’s (ADL) director of Campus Initiatives, Naomi Mayor, has sent personalized invitations to elected members of student government inviting them to participate in an all-expenses paid trip to Israel. (You can read the e-mail below, at the end of this article.)

Called the “Campus Leaders Mission to Israel,” these trips are one of the ADL’s most important tactics in influencing campus political decisions. Rather than focus on convincing the general student body to continue supporting the occupation, this tactic focuses on influencing student decision-makers. By convincing them to adopt political positions that support the Israeli occupation, the ADL and other groups can create a bulwark between student popular opinion and the student government’s actual votes.

Monsanto in Ukraine: IMF loan for Ukraine may give GMO giant a backdoor into EU

Ukraine’s bid for closer ties with the west could come at a cost. With the IMF set to loan the country $17 billion, the deal could also see GMO crops grown in some of the most fertile lands on the continent, warns Frederic Mousseau.

Very few, not least the Ukrainian population are aware of these details, but according to Mousseau, who is a Policy Director at The Oakland Institute, in return for the cash, Ukraine could very well become a test ground for GMO crops in Europe, something the rest of the European Union has been looking to prevent.

We care enough about sports to review ‘official’ calls, but not to review ‘official’ calls of ‘lawful’ wars?!?

*hyperlinks live at source*
If Americans applied their passion and expertise in sports laws to current US/UK/Israel/UN wars, the resultant outrage would quickly cause “leaders’” arrests for obvious unlawful Wars of Aggression.

We care, appropriately, that sports law be reviewed for proper calls on the field of play. Examples include tennis, baseball, and football. The illegality of all current wars are easily proved by reviewing war law on that field: military armed attack is unlawful unless in response to military attack from another nation’s government.

Americans continue an Emperor’s New Clothes-like awakening that the UN Charter and US Constitution limits have long been rejected by our “leaders’” preference for dictatorial power. In this one area of law to limit governments from war-murders, it’s easy to explain and prove that US/UK/Israel armed attacks are OBVIOUS unlawful Wars of Aggression:

Cambridge Mace's Lane Middle School Teacher on Administrative Leave

He's a man with many names, and the books he has written have raised the concerns of the Dorchester County Board of Education and the Dorchester County Sheriff's Office.

Early last week the school board was alerted that one of its eighth grade language arts teachers at Mace's Lane Middle School had several aliases. Police said that under those names, he wrote two fictional books about the largest school shooting in the country's history set in the future. Now, Patrick McLaw is placed on leave.

Dr. K.S. Voltaer is better known by some in Dorchester County as Patrick McLaw, or even Patrick Beale. Not only was he a teacher at Mace's Lane Middle School in Cambridge, but according to Dorchester Sheriff James Phillips, McLaw is also the author of two books: "The Insurrectionist" and its sequel, "Lillith's Heir."

Webmaster's Commentary:

Poverty Capitalism in 2014 – Introducing Private Probation Companies

As N.P.R. reported in May, services that “were once free, including those that are constitutionally required,” are now frequently billed to offenders: the cost of a public defender, room and board when jailed, probation and parole supervision, electronic monitoring devices, arrest warrants, drug and alcohol testing, and D.N.A. sampling. This can go to extraordinary lengths: in Washington state, N.P.R. found, offenders even “get charged a fee for a jury trial — with a 12-person jury costing $250, twice the fee for a six-person jury.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In Sweden, they are emptying their prisons, because the sole focus is rehabilitation, and that approach is working close to perfectly.

But in the US, the prison-industrial complex is about profit, rather than rehabilitation, so the process - and profits - grind on. Talk about the inhumanity!!

Chicago man waving ISIS flag out of vehicle window warns cops car is rigged with bomb: police

A Chicago man trailing an ISIS flag outside his car window is behind bars after leading cops on a chase and then telling officers the vehicle was rigged with explosives and would detonate if searched, police said.

Cops tried to pull over Emad Karakrah, 49, Wednesday morning after a caller noticed a suspicious vehicle around 9:15 a.m. on the city’s south side, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

Karakrah apparently was proudly waving the black and white flag favored by Islamic State of Iraq and Syria terrorists.

The man took off, leading officers through several red lights before a second patrol car corralled the fleeing flag-bearer.

As he was taken into custody, Karakrah warned officers the car contained a bomb and would explode if search by police, the paper reported.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This SO reeks of "false flag", in order to terrorize Americans, that I hardly know where to begin.

And the obvious kicker is that no explosive devices were found when the DHS and FBI inspected it.

Expect more of these "incidents" as a prelude to a real "false flag", to be blamed on the "usual suspects", and that well may be coming soon, to try to ignite the American public into another barking mad war frenzy.

But frankly, I do not believe, that even with another false flag, that the American people can be sold into another war at all. Americans are skeptical, and very war weary having seen flustercluck the US has made of its military interventions in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya.

They understand, now more than ever, that these military interventions, where our best and bravest young men and women get killed or maimed for life, are all about private profit.

In Iraq, it was about the oil; who got it, and in what nominations it was sold.

In Afghanistan, it is about the oil pipelines, the opium, and the riches of unexploited mineral wealth.

And in Libya, it was to prevent Gaddafi from instituting a gold-backed dinar, which would have absolutely crippled the worthless US dollar, backed by nothing more than the US government's military prowess.

So if it appears that the US government is trying to sell you another war (which they appear to be doing against Syria, Iraq, and Russia), just ask yourselves: who profits?!?!?

Maine Sec. of State: Real ID “You might as well just repeal the Fourth Amendment”

Maine & Massachusetts residents may not be able to board a plane using their driver’s licenses starting in 2016 if the state does not start complying with the federal Real ID program.

In 2007, Maine became the first state to reject the federal regulations adopted in response to a study on national security after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Federal officials wanted to make driver’s licenses more uniform and secure, but opponents said the federal law was too sweeping and intrusive.

Non-compliance, however, has restricted the ability of residents from some states to access some federal buildings, and that is likely to increase.

The Real ID program is intended to make states’ requirements for driver’s licenses and identification cards more uniform and stringent.

The Real ID program is a REAL NIGHTMARE or a spying governments wet dream.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Last year, when Mike and I renewed our license, the State of Hawaii gave us the option of renewing for either 4 or 8 years, and we took the latter option.

I remember us talking about whether the United States, as we had known it, would still exist by the time those licenses expired.

Right now, I would not bet against it not existing, between its military and financial woes.

And right now, another military misadventure may well do this country in for good.

How The US Militarizes The World’s Police, Not Just Ferguson’s

Since then, the world has watched the streets of Ferguson turn into a battleground, as heavily armed police officers fired tear gas, shot rubber bullets and pointed guns at protesters denouncing Brown’s killing.

“Solidarity with Ferguson,” tweeted Mariam Barghouti from Palestine. “Remember to not touch your face when tear gassed or put water on it. Instead use milk or coke.”

Numerous people — domestic and abroad — have expressed outrage at the militaristic response of local police against protesters, journalists, and people of color.

“Urban Shield plays a leading role in the globalization of repression.”

Since the protests erupted earlier this month, many have called into question the US Defense Department’s 1033 program, which allows surplus military equipment to be transferred to local police departments for counter-narcotics and counter-terrorism operations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ultimately, the only way "security" is created is through meaningful work, at decent wages, coupled with lifetime education, and money which is created as a public utility, not a loan at interest upon its issuance.

Any other way, which consistently favors suppression as a way of snuffing out dissent, is ultimately doomed to failure.

State Department to hike renunciation fees to US$2,350; says “no public benefit” in respecting human right to change nationality

Confirming reports passed on by commenters at the Isaac Brock Society, DiploPundit points to a State Department interim rule just placed on public inspection for printing in tomorrow’s Federal Register, which raises the fee for renunciation of U.S. citizenship (but apparently not relinquishment) to US$2,350, more than twenty times the average level in other high-income countries. As they state:

[D]emand for the service has increased dramatically, consuming far more consular officer time and resources, as reflected in the 2012 Overseas Time Survey and increased workload data. Because the Department believes there is no public benefit or other reason for setting this fee below cost, the Department is increasing this fee to reflect the full cost of providing the service. Therefore the increased fee reflects both the increased cost of the provision of service as well as the determination to now charge the full cost.

Further, the DHS “shall, at the discretion of the agent supervising the search, remove, photograph or seize as evidence” any of the following items “bar gold, gold coins, firearms of any kind unless manufactured prior to 1878, documents such as passports or foreign bank account records, pornography or any material that, in the opinion of the agent, shall be deemed of to be of a contraband nature.”

Victor White's Family Disputes Claim That Handcuffed Man Killed Himself

The attorney representing the family of Victor White III -- a 22-year-old man who authorities claim shot and killed himself while locked in a patrol car with his hands cuffed behind him -- says police are not only responsible for his death but launched a cover-up immediately afterwards.

"He didn't kill himself," Louisiana attorney Carol Powell Lexing told The Huffington Post. "They killed him and they have been covering it up instead of dealing with the rogue cop within their department. The bigger question is why did they kill this boy?"

Florida Police Chief Defends Cops’ Aggressive, Violent and Life-Threatening Reaction Against Men Video Recording them

Boynton Beach Police Chief Jeffrey Katz defended the aggressive reaction of his officers in a Youtube video Tuesday, claiming the men in the car were “escalating” the situation by “recording the interaction,” causing one of the officers to fear for his life when a man “reached out of his window with a black object in his hand,” which was nothing more than a camera phone trying to record the cop’s name tag after he refused to provide it.

That cop slapped the phone out of his hand, then yanked the man out of the car, throwing him facedown on the grass while another cop with his gun drawn comes charging towards the other men, threatening to shoot one of them for who knows what.

“I’ll put a round in your ass so quick,” the cop said, even though none of the men in the car were doing anything more than being assertive about their rights, even if they were doing it in a profane manner, which is protected by the First Amendment.

‘The Chinafication of America’: Reaction to Obama Bypassing the Senate with UN Climate Treaty: ‘Obama is taking a page from China’s government’

New York Times: ‘U.S. seeking climate deal that would skirt Senate’: 'Under the Constitution, a president may enter into a legally binding treaty only if it is approved by a two-thirds majority of the Senate. To sidestep that requirement, President Obama’s climate negotiators are devising what they call a “politically binding” deal that would “name and shame” countries into cutting their emissions...American negotiators are instead homing in on a hybrid agreement — a proposal to blend legally binding conditions from an existing 1992 treaty with new voluntary pledges. The mix would create a deal that would update the treaty, and thus, negotiators say, not require a new vote of ratification.’

Video shows police shot Ohio man ‘on sight’ as he leaned on toy gun in Walmart, attorney says

John Crawford III died Aug. 5 after police were called to Walmart in Beavercreek, near Dayton, by another shopper who reported a man carrying what appeared to be an AR-15 rifle.

The 22-year-old Crawford was instead carrying an unpackaged MK-177 (.177 caliber) BB/pellet rifle he picked up in the store’s toy department.

Police claim Crawford ignored their commands to drop the weapon, and the former Marine who called in the report and witnessed the shooting said Crawford “looked like he was going to go violently.” But attorney Michael Wright said surveillance video from the incident, which Ohio’s attorney general allowed him to watch with Crawford’s family, contradicted those accounts.
“John was doing nothing wrong in Walmart, nothing more, nothing less than shopping,” Wright said.

At a press conference on Tuesday, attorney Chris Stewart said that police records showed that East Point officers had discharged their Tasers 13 times to make Gregory Towns, who was handcuffed, get up and walk.

Tanks on the Streets? Police Required to Use Military Equipment within a Year or Return It

The militarization of America’s police forces has been the result of federal policy that not only provides the means to give men-in-blue the same tools as combat soldiers, but in fact requires law enforcement to “use it or lose it” when it comes to military equipment.

Specifically, the Department of Defense’s 1033 program—which funnels all kinds of military surplus goods to police—has a provision that clearly says that any participating law enforcement agency must use its equipment within one year of receiving it. If they don’t, they have to give it up.

Will Republicans Block Action On Corporations Abandoning The U.S.?

There is legislation before Congress to do something about corporations renouncing their US "citizenship." The odds are that Republicans will block it -- and not just because they have obstructed everything else.

There is a wave of news about corporations using a technicality called an "inversion" to renounce their US "citizenship." An inversion is when a US company buys or merges with a non-US company, and then pretends it is no longer a US company. Today it's Burger King. Not long ago it was Walgreens.

Bill Passes Allowing Police To Shut Off ALL Cell Phones … Remotely

Police and others would have the ability to shut off cell phones anytime they wanted under a bill passed by California’s state legislature, privacy experts say.

Senate Bill (SB) 962 would require manufacturers to add a “kill switch” to cell phones that would let authorities turn the device off remotely. The stated goal of the bill is to allow owners of smartphones to “kill” their phone if it’s stolen, but privacy experts say the bill’s language could be twisted. Additional language was needed, they add.

“If you give law enforcement a tool that can be abused, you’ll have an instance of asking for forgiveness rather than permission,” Jack Laperruque, an expert on privacy at the Center for Democracy and Technology, told The Hill. Laperruque believes authorities could use the kill switch to shut down communications during protests or incidents of civil unrest such as the riots in Ferguson, Missouri.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Barry Kurren ruled in favor of four seed companies seeking to stop Kauai's new law from going into effect in October.

Syngenta Seeds, DuPont Pioneer, Agrigenetics Inc., doing business as Dow AgroSciences, and BASF Plant Sciences sued for a permanent injunction, arguing the ordinance unfairly targets their industry.

Kurren's ruling agrees that the ordinance is pre-empted by state law. The judge's ruling stops the county from enforcing the ordinance.

(Don’t forget – CIA created al Qaeda). Well several sources in the alternative media have reported in detail that Kenya was a beta test for a very serious mall-attack-plan in the US.

And this, it is alleged, is designed to create havoc and fear – and allow for the complete import of [Martial] Law in America – and justify the breakdown of the constitution, civil liberties and thus the final and complete control of a shadow government over Washington.

Now this sounds fanciful. Does it?

Top general: Islamic State extremists will ‘soon’ pose a threat to the United States

The US military’s top general believes Islamic State extremists will “soon” pose a threat to America and Europe and that an international coalition will be needed to confront it, his spokesman said Monday.

US commanders are preparing possible “options” to counter IS jihadists both in Iraq as well as Syria, according to General Martin Dempsey’s spokesman, Colonel Ed Thomas.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel adopted a more strident tone last week at a Pentagon news conference, suggesting the IS militants presented a dire threat that surpassed the danger posed by the Al-Qaeda network.

But Pentagon officials insisted Hagel and Dempsey shared the same views on the IS.

Dempsey “believes that ISIS (Islamic State) is a regional threat that will soon become a threat to the United States and Europe,” Thomas said in a statement.

“He (Dempsey) believes that ISIS must be pressured both in Iraq and in Syria,” he added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Defense Secretary Hagel and General Dempsey: could you possibly telegraph anymore loudly that some elements in this country are gearing up for another false flag, upon which to justify yet more war against....whoever the next target is supposed to be, to prevent the collapse of the US dollar?

Gentlemen, I would strongly suggest to you that IF there is another false flag in this country, skeptical, war-weary Americans will have no stomach for it whatsoever.

Iraq has cratered; Afghanistan is cratering, and Libya has cratered, not to mention other military interventions we're not supposed to know about (like the humanitarian catastrophe in Yemen.)

And if such an even happens, it will demonstrate, incontrovertibly, that everything this country's military and security agencies have done to prevent it have been absolutely, thoroughly, useless and irrelevant!!

And that, gentlemen,is when the American people will wake up, and get angry.

CNN caught red handed covering up CDC medical genocide of African-American babies

Following the explosive story of a key CDC scientist and whistleblower going public with his admission that the CDC committed scientific fraud to bury the truth about MMR vaccines causing autism, CNN has twice censored citizen journalists who posted well-cited stories on CNN's iReport website.

CNN has been aggressively monitoring its own website to commit content suppression actions as rapidly as possible, making sure any truthful reporting about the CDC, MMR vaccines and autism gets deleted as quickly as possible.

The first story posted on CNN's iReport site stayed up for 19 hours before CNN censors noticed it and ordered it deleted. By that time, it had racked up 17,000 shares and was starting to go viral. The author of that story contacted The Truth Barrier and explained how CNN content censors lied:

Oklahoma City bombing: Claims of second accomplice and FBI intimidation

According to the Salt Lake Tribune, US District Judge Clark Waddoups scheduled a November 13th hearing on the matter, in which Utah attorney Jesse Trentadue accused the FBI of threatening to eliminate a former undercover agent’s health benefits if he took the stand. The former agent reportedly knew convicted bomber Timothy McVeigh.

The core of the issue is that Trentadue claims the FBI has surveillance video revealing McVeigh carrying out the Oklahoma City bombing with an accomplice. The FBI adamantly denies that such video exists, and the government has insisted repeatedly that McVeigh acted alone in the event that killed 168 people.

The witness involved in this whole situation, John Matthews, was scheduled to testify regarding this alleged video in July, but withdrew at the last minute. Trentadue – as well as a freelance journalist named Roger Charles – stated that when he spoke with Matthews about his absence, the former agent told them the FBI threatened him.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Like its other associated agencies, the FBI no longer has any credibility whatsoever.

And the only thing it can do to protect its pathological incompetence (or its demonstrated desire to push specific outcomes in its investigations) is threaten.

Over $455,000 Seized from Medical Marijuana Patient Slapped with Civil Asset Forfeiture

In March 2013, Steve Oates' home in Goodyear, Ariz. was stormed by police, SWAT, and DEA agents because of a marijuana grow room in the guest house.

"It was like something you see in the movies. It was 6:30 in the morning, and basically you hear 'bang! bang! bang!' on the door, and next thing you know you hear the crash of a battering ram," says Oates.

Oates' doctor had recommended medicinal marijuana for Oates' chronic back pain, so he attained a medical marijuana card with cultivation rights. Dispensaries were still few and far between at the time, and Oates didn't trust Craigslist for his medicine.

VIRTUAL 9-11: Will the US & Israel Hack The US Banking System Computers and Falsely Blame It On Iran (or Syria or Russia or China)?

So what it looks like is being planned, and pre-sold to the American people with all these stories about celebrities' personal information being hacked and made public (an activity that produces no profit for the hackers other than news headlines), and the "Syrian" (nudge nudge wink wink) hack of the AP Twitter feed that shocked the US stock market, is that the US Government will itself take down the US financial computers, and blame it on Iran /Russia/ China/Al Qaeda/Syria/Arabs and others to be named as convenient. This gets Wall Street and Washington DC off the hook, because now the financial melt-down is an act of war, rather than the result of decades of Wall Street crime and corruption and the predations of Private Central Banks. US banks have already been hit with cyber attacks, to set the stage.

The Old World Order

The immediate and obvious point to make here is that readers should/must immediately become deeply suspicious any time we are bombarded with a label which contains the word “new”. Implicit in every such label (by definition) is the concept that “this time it’s different”, because if it wasn’t different it wouldn’t be “new”.

“This time it’s different” is a cliché in Western societies. But it’s not revered as an aphorism of wisdom. Rather, it is scorned as the mantra of idiots. This same point was made in a previous commentary which debunked and rejected the ludicrous propaganda euphemism: “The New Normal”. The same analysis applies to both propaganda lies.

WHAT IF THERE IS A 'BANG' INSIDE THE UNITED STATES?

Most people, myself included, are of the opinion that such an event will be another fake terror attack, like 9-11, to be blamed on the target of the pending invasion but actually carried out by the US and Israel. According to a recent poll, a majority of Americans hold that view of 9-11 itself. After the lie about stolen incubators that tricked us into the first invasion of Iraq and the lie Saddam's nuclear weapons that tricked us into the second invasion of Iraq, prudence demands we expect more of the same from our "leaders."

But for the hard core true believers, the men and women so scared of the US Government that they will not even allow the merest hint of doubt or question to enter their minds, lest their souls be eternally damned, the ones so wrapped in the flag that all the blood to their brains has been cut off, I will tell you what another big "bang" inside the US is likely to mean to them.

A big "bang" means the Department of Homeland Security is a total failure.

Abolish the TSA

Recently, there has been a public backlash against new airport screening procedures. Passengers rightfully object to scanners that reveal their naked bodies, and to enhanced pat-downs that would be considered sexual assault anywhere else.

John Tyner summed up this backlash perfectly: "Don't touch my junk!"

We object to these new procedures. They are just the latest symptoms of a series indignities imposed upon us since 9/11, such as . . .

Being forced to remove belts and shoes when screened
Seeing toothpaste and nail clippers confiscated

The underlying, absurd logic is that if you intend to board an airplane, you sacrifice your Fourth Amendment rights against unreasonable searches and seizures. The right to travel—as fundamental a right as there is in a free society—has been turned on its head.

Even when the TSA tries to be helpful, it humiliates us. For instance, the TSA's PreCheck program is designed to speed people through security checkpoints.

Leading intelligence experts including former National Security Agency (NSA) official Thomas Drake – the whistleblower who inspired Edward Snowden – confirm that the tools are designed to enhance the intelligence community’s capabilities to identify potential terrorism suspects that could face a range of sanctions, from surveillance to no-fly injunctions to, at worst, being targeted for extrajudicial

Ruby Ridge REVEALED - "Victim" Vicki Weaver - The UN-DEAD Anniversary Special

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For those who don't remember, the FBI sent an informant over to Randy Weaver to ask him to saw off part of the barrel of a shutgun. The FBI informant just pointed to a part of the barrel and said "here" and Randy sawed it off, not realizing that "here" was 1/4 inch inside the legal definition of a sawed-off shotgun. The FBI hoped that by setting him up for a weapons charge, Randy would be forced to spoy on his neighbors for them, a common trick used by the Soviets. But Randy refused to go along and the FBI charged him, then changed the court date for Randy's while "losing" the notification of the change that was supposed to be sent to Randy. So the FBI was able to issue an arrest warrant for Randy Weaver which led to the standoff at Ruby Ridge. Following the same pattern of "leave nobody alive to contradict the official story", the FBI shot and killed Randy Weaver's wife, Vicky, their son, and wounded Randy and others. Congress held hearings exonerating the FBI for shooting and killing a woman holding a bay while the corporate media demonized Randy ans his family as kooks not worthy of sympathy (as they did following Waco).

Ferguson: No justice in American police state

There are reports that American police kill 500 or more Americans every year. Few of these murdered Americans posed a threat to police. Police murder Americans for totally implausible reasons. For example, a few days before Michael Brown was gunned down in Ferguson, John Crawford picked up a toy gun from a WalMart shelf in the toy department and was shot and killed on the spot by police goons.

It appears that the murder of Michael Brown did not satisfy the blood lust of the goon thug cop murderers. Less than four miles from Ferguson, goon thugs murdered another black man on August 19. The police claims of “threat” are disproved by the video of the murder. You can see the entire scene much better here. This is a clear case of outright murder of a man by our Nazi Gestapo police. The police then handcuff their dead victim.

From times immemorial, the top down authority imposition has been the rule. This system of control is the reason why excrement discharge flows downhill.

In spite of this fact, what keeps this inequitable delineation between the dominant and the spineless? Pure power and malicious behavior achieves the perfection of perdition, in this hierarchal slave gulag. Because it can be done and no force can stop the captivity is the cause of the suffering.

Aussies protest Israeli film festival

Pro-Palestinian activists have held a rally in Sydney to protest against the opening of the Israeli Film Festival in the Australian city.

Protester gathered near Sydney’s Palace Verona cinema on Thursday to show their solidarity with Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip who have been under Israeli attacks since July 8.

The protest came despite a ruling by the New South Wales Supreme Court, which said the rally at Palace Verona on Oxford Street, could not go ahead, citing concerns about traffic.

Turning America Into a War Zone, Where ‘We the People’ Are the Enemy

Life in the American police state is an endless series of don’ts delivered at the end of a loaded gun: don’t talk back to police officers, don’t even think about defending yourself against a SWAT team raid (of which there are 80,000 every year), don’t run when a cop is nearby lest you be mistaken for a fleeing criminal, don’t carry a cane lest it be mistaken for a gun, don’t expect privacy in public, don’t let your kids walk to the playground alone, don’t engage in nonviolent protest near where a government official might pass, don’t try to grow vegetables in your front yard, don’t play music for tips in a metro station, don’t feed whales, and on and on.

For those who resist, who dare to act independently, think for themselves, march to the beat of a different drummer, the consequences are invariably a one-way trip to the local jail or death.

Central Banking at Jackson Hole: Simplistic Dialectic, Significant Ramifications

Like Reuters, Bloomberg is a creature of the establishment and you can read Bloomberg editorials (especially) to garner an inkling about how we ought to be perceiving one of the most important dominant social themes of all: Central banking and the endlessly discussed deployment of its monetary arsenal.

In this case, as before – and as we have maintained – central bankers meeting this weekend at Jackson Hole will palaver earnestly but come up with reasons why monetary policy and interest rates should remain fairly "unchanged."

The Secret Playbook of Internet Trolls

Why would a Jew post vile anti-Semitic comments? Because normal people are offended by – and don’t want to be associated with – pure, naked anti-Semitism, and so they will avoid such discussions. If the discussion was originally criticizing a specific aspect of Israel policy, the discussion will break down, and the actual point regarding policy will be lost.

Similarly, anti-Semitic posts weaken websites by making them seem less reputable. Indeed, Common Dreams says that the troll’s anti-Semitic comments drove away many of that site’s largest donors … dealing a severe blow to its continued viability. That’s exactly what trolls spewing anti-Semitic bile are trying to do: shut down logical discussion and discredit and weaken sites which allow rational criticism of policy.

Got weapons? Nude body scanners easily defeated

Researchers are delivering a paper at a security conference Thursday highlighting how easy it is to get weapons through the nude body scanners that have been removed from US airports but have been placed at other government installations across the globe.

The report, given at the Usenix Security Symposium in San Diego, highlights the insecurity of the Rapiscan Secure 1000 Single Pose "backscatter" scanner that once was used throughout the nation's airports but are now deployed at US prisons and courthouses, as well as airports in Africa. The paper, "Security Analysis of a Full-Body Scanner," from researchers at the University of California-San Diego, University of Michigan, and Johns Hopkins University, confirms what even laymen researchers had already discovered: hiding weapons on the side of one's body defeats the machine (PDF).

Government's Response To Snowden? Strip 100,000 Potential Whistleblowers Of Their Security Clearances

The government swears it protects whistleblowers but the efforts it makes undermines its assertions. Telling people the government is targeting them for reasons it doesn't seem to be able to put into words is called a "criminal act." But here's the most surprising fact from Evanina's profile.

One crisp action taken following agency auditing after Snowden’s exposure: 100,000 fewer people have security clearances than did a year ago, Evanina said. “That’s a lot.”

This looks like the proper response to someone like Snowden. Handing out too many security clearances undermines security. But it's more than that: it's a consolidation of power. By stripping 100,000 people of their clearances, the government eliminates 100,000 potential whistleblowers. With fewer eyes watching surveillance programs, odds of abuse multiply. Someone has to watch the watchers and sometimes that someone is nothing more than a government contractor.

CNN Anchor Suggests Police Use Water Cannons On Ferguson Protesters

In discussing seemingly less-violent options for crowd control, Rosemary Church wonders why the largely white authorities in Ferguson haven't considered using water cannons on the the largely black crowds. Once her co-anchor Errol Barnett processed what she just said, he looks at her like she's gone insane.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All I can think of is the song line, "Don't know much about history..."

And it is very obvious that Ms. Church is blissfully unaware of the the civil rights movement and struggle in this country in the 60s, when peaceful African-Americans protestors got routinely hit with water cannon attacks so hard, they literally fell to the ground.

As reported at wikipedia.com:

As the jails and holding areas filled with arrested students, the Birmingham Police Department, led by Eugene "Bull" Connor, used high-pressure water jets and police attack dogs on the children and bystanders.

But when you look at this corporate presstitute, whose job it is not to report the news, or do any due-dilligence fact-checking, but to skew the news in any direction the Federal government wants it to be skewed, what she said was both completely logical, and throughly, outrageously stupid and insensitive at the same time.

The Corporatocracy has spoken: either stop protesting, or such protest will be brutally repressed.

But I think the real reason Furgeson has been so over-run with reporters, etc., after this horrifically tragic incident of the shooting of Michael Brown, is to look at creating a national wave of protest which would give Obama the excuse for suspending the Constitution and Bill of Rights nationally, and invoking martial law. Or at the very least, creating a racial issue for the Democrats to ride into the November elections.

Who know, perhaps, even postponing the mid-terms in November indefinitely?!?

As an observer of the geopolitical scene for some time now, I do not have the luxury...of believing in "coincidences".

City of Des Moines Begins Homeless Camp Evictions

The City of Des Moines said it gave about 50 homeless people living in camps along the river fair warning. On Monday, city crews went from site to site making sure the campers had packed up and moved.

“Today they’re going to come down and take everybody’s stuff and throw it in the dump,” said Don Welch.

Welch was kicked out of a camp site under the George Washington Carver Bridge.

The city brought in a garbage truck and end loader to remove the trash and belongings left behind. Crews are targeting about a dozen remote campsites along the Des Moines and Raccoon Rivers. Officials said most of the campers had already left on their own. Police were on hand to deal with any problems with the few who remained.

“If you don’t leave, they’re going to put you in jail,” warned Welch.

and what about Don Welch's warning that if these people don't move, they will be jailed?!?

If this is not the criminalization of homelessness, I don't know what the hell is.

That these people only have the choice between moving out of sight, or jail, says a lot about the current moral, and fiscal, state of Des Moines; and I can tell you, neither perspective is very pretty right now.

Congress Members Who Approve Militarization of U.S. Police Receive 73% More Money from Defense Industry

Congress Is For Sale to the Highest Bidder

Americans of all stripes oppose the militarization of U.S. police forces.

For example:

A December 2013 Reason-Rupe poll found that 58% of Americans thought that police militarization has gone too far

A new Pew research poll shows that a plurality of people think that the police have gone too far in Ferguson, Missouri

So why does Congress continue to approve militarization? For the same reason that Congress members vote for NSA spying on Americans and go easy on Wall Street criminals: money.

Maplight reports that congress critters opposing Congressman Grayson’s bill to demilitarize police receive 73% more money than those voting for it:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US Federal Government, through its collective actions, both domestically and internationally, has lost all credibility and all morality.

Its policies have left this country morally and fiscally bankrupt, and warrants absolutely no faith whatsoever from the American people.

We the people, have become expendable and useless to the American political process, because by the time candidates are vetted at the state and national level, the corporations funding their campaigns have told them, very clearly, what the quid pro quo is for their funding.

A Freedom of Information Act request filed by the Washington, D.C.-based Partnership for Civil Justice Fund yielded an FBI document containing knowledge of a plot by an unnamed group or individual to kill “leaders” of the Houston chapter of the nonviolent Occupy Wall Street movement.

Is Portugal Next in Line for Wealth Confiscation?

The pattern should be seared in your memory by now. If you fail to recognize it, you could be struck with a huge financial blow.

It’s a pattern that has played out over and over throughout history: a government gets into financial trouble, then denies there’s a problem, which is followed by a surprise wealth grab.

That’s exactly what happened when bank deposits in Spain and Cyprus were raided. We’ve also seen retirement savings confiscated in some form in Poland, Portugal, and Hungary. Capital controls have been imposed in Cyprus and Iceland.

Of course these aren’t the only examples of blatant government thievery. These examples are just within Europe and just within recent years. They can and will happen anywhere.

Why cops have a bad reputation

Even though it might sound harsh and impolitic, here is the bottom line: if you don’t want to get shot, tased, pepper-sprayed, struck with a baton or thrown to the ground, just do what I tell you. Don’t argue with me, don’t call me names, don’t tell me that I can’t stop you, don’t say I’m a racist pig, don’t threaten that you’ll sue me and take away my badge. Don’t scream at me that you pay my salary, and don’t even think of aggressively walking towards me. Most field stops are complete in minutes. How difficult is it to cooperate for that long?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Civil Rights are a matter of principle, and I would like to remind this officer that the United States Supreme Court ruled in John Bad Elk vs United States that when the police are acting outside the law the citizen has a legal right to resist, up to and including the use of lethal force.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Proving that the government of Great Britain is just as much a slave to Tel Aviv as the US Government is!

Congress Members Who Approve Militarization of U.S. Police Receive 73% More Money from Defense Industry

A December 2013 Reason-Rupe poll found that 58% of Americans thought that police militarization has gone too far

A new Pew research poll shows that a plurality of people think that the police have gone too far in Ferguson, Missouri

So why does Congress continue to approve militarization? For the same reason that Congress members vote for NSA spying on Americans and go easy on Wall Street criminals: money.

Maplight reports that congress critters opposing Congressman Grayson’s bill to demilitarize police receive 73% more money than those voting for it:

'Less-than-lethal' ammunition makers profiting off unrest from Ferguson to Israel

So-called less-than-lethal munitions used on protesters in Ferguson have become not only a symbol of a militarized mindset among law enforcement in the US, but have galvanized bonds between struggles against state aggression, from Missouri to Palestine.

Ferguson Police Have Body Cameras… But Don’t Wear Them

While many are crying out for the use of body cameras to be adopted in towns such as Ferguson, Missouri, the Wall Street Journal reported, “Police in Ferguson have a stock of body-worn cameras, but have yet to deploy them to officers.“

The US War Culture Has Come Home to Roost

Police violence in the United States should not surprise anyone. In Ferguson, Missouri, we have witnessed the use against US citizens of Iraq-tested war technologies. On August 17, 2014, a police force using armored vehicles and military tactics fired rubber bullets and tear gas canisters at peaceful protesters who had been demanding justice against Darren Wilson, a killer cop who took the life of Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager. According to an autopsy, Michael Brown was shot six times, including twice in the head; one of the bullets that penetrated his head came from above him, which could indicate an “execution style” for the killing attributed to Wilson. A return to violent tactics rather than the community policing promised by the authorities to the people of Ferguson, and a decision by Governor Jay Nixon to call up the National Guard were very much part of an escalation.

Sonic Weapon Used to Push Back Reporters, Protestors

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The model for a civil police force is that the guilty are caught and punished while the innocent are left unmolested. The worst aspect of the militarization of the US police is that they target large masses of Americans without regard to who is actually engaged in wrongdoing. This i snot policing. This is repression.

The Ferguson Police Have a Card up Their Sleeve

The Ferguson Police Department has a plan for how to improve their image to a world stunned by the unfolding story of the shooting of Michael Brown: Make their new boss from the state highway patrol look bad. Make Michael Brown look bad. Make the protesters look bad. Make the entire Ferguson community look bad.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The media is still trying to spin Ferguson as a whites versus blacks issue.

It isn't.

As these photos from the Occupy Wall Street protests show, the real issue is ALL Americans, of every color, against a brutal government.

Intercept Reporter Shot With Beanbags and Arrested While Covering Ferguson Protests

Intercept reporter Ryan Devereaux was arrested this morning while on the ground covering the protests in Ferguson, Mo. According to St. Louis Post-Dispatch photographer David Carson, who witnessed the apprehension, Ryan and a German reporter he was with were both taken into custody by members of a police tactical team. They were handcuffed and placed in a wagon, and Carson was told they were being taken to St. Louis County jail.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The police seem to be targeting reporters more than the protesters!

Our Towns Don’t Need Tanks

This past week I have watched both the print and television media’s response to the death of Michael Brown and the ensuing riots in Ferguson. For the first time, the mainstream media has finally started to question the militarization of law enforcement and its impact on our communities. My question is: What took you so long?

Why Twitter's new verified feature is disastrous for #Ferguson

In an effort to encourage its verified users to engage with one another, Twitter announced mid last week that its verified users would get a new set of tools that lets them screen out conversations from non-verified users. The system essentially builds an underclass into the most democratic social network ever made, by giving its verified users preferential treatment.

BEX ALERT - The Coming Race War Won’t Be About Race

Will the recent rioting in Ferguson, Missouri, be a tipping point in the struggle against racial injustice, or will it be a minor footnote in some future grad student’s thesis on Civil Unrest in the Early Twenty-First Century?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The corporate media is trying to sell the idea that what happened in Ferguson is all about black versus white. It isn't. What is really fueling the rage in the streets is all of the American people, of all colors, fed up with a repressive regime that uses the police to intimidate us all.

New Army Manual Calls for the Use of Lethal Force Against Peaceful Protesters

The new Army manual, known as ATP 3-39.33, provides discussion and techniques about civil disturbances and crowd control operations that occur in the continental United States (CONUS) and outside the continental United States (OCONUS).

This document, just published this past Friday, August 15, 2014, promises to change the way the “authorities” deal with protesters, even peaceful ones. The consequences of ATP 39.33 could prove deadly for protesters. Further, the provisions of this Army manual could prove to be the end of the First Amendment right to peaceably assemble.

San Jose police fatally shoot woman holding power drill

When they arrived at the family's home, they saw the woman outside, holding what they thought was a weapon, Randol said.

Officers asked her to drop it, but she did not, pointing it at them instead, Randol said. One of the officers, Wakana Okuma, shot the woman, who was taken to a local hospital and pronounced dead.

Randol said Okuma, who has been placed on administrative leave, "feared for her safety and the safety of the public" when she shot the woman.

Officers later realized the woman had been holding a cordless drill that was painted black, Randol said.

Welcome to Police State America: The US Has Descended Into An Undeclared State of Martial Law

According to the Economist Intelligence Unit Democracy Index 2013, the United States is tied with Romania for forty-ninth in civil liberties. Several countries such as Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, and Norway are tied for first.

Secretly disappearing people under the NDAA, executing three American citizens with drones, and unbridled, Fourth Amendment violating spy activities will put a country on par with Romania with regard to civil liberties.

Gaza, Ukraine: The War Drums are Sounding the Alarm

As a writer of articles reporting news events of the world, I often seek to expose the concealed truth beneath the layers of a monolithic state sponsored propaganda machine called mainstream media that simply spreads the lies our leaders tell. And as perilously out of control the earth appears to be spinning this year, no events or developments cut to the core of what it means to be human than responding to what has been taking place this summer in Gaza.

2014 may go down in history as the year that the West initiated the Second Cold War on its way to initiating the Third World War. Spearheaded by arrogant American Empire power lusting desperately for global hegemonic control, this year the US rush to war is backed by its usual suspects, Europe-NATO-British Commonwealth, and its usual Middle East partners-in-crime Israel and Saudi Arabia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What we have in Gaza, and Eastern Ukraine,are war crimes against helpless citizens, women and children, who are killed by both the IDF and Poroschenko's troops with impunity.

But the war against the world's citizens doesn't end there.

We are witnessing some shocking repression right here in the United States, as the police become more militarized, courtesy of their Israeli trainers, and feel that throwing tear gas cannisters at peaceful protestors; spraying them with pepper spray; and shooting them with rubber bullets, are all standard practices against peaceful protest.

There is a law in physics that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction; so too with poliical and physical repression.

Ask the people whooverthrew the reign of Batista in Cuba; the people overthrew the Shah of Iran; and the Romanian people overthrew Ceausescu.

And please remember: all wars are banker's wars, because banks profit from all sides, at usurious interest rates, and countries may need decades to pay back all the capital, plus the interest on the loans they take in order to wage wars.

But the biggest war crime of them all is starting a war that has no basis whatsoever in terms of national defense, which is what the US government is getting ready to do.

It is about saving the currency, when ultimately all the blood and money spent is to fatten the coffers of private corporations. It is not about freedom; it is not about protecting our rights; war is a method to insure the supremacy of the US dollar in international trade, period, end of discussion.

The Real Issue Behind the Ferguson, Missouri Police Response: Protest Is Treated As Terrorism In America Today

Washington Post writer Radley Balko is the leading expert on militarization of police in America. Balko has testified to Congress and written books on the subject.

Balko said today that the real issue behind the Ferguson, Missouri police response wasn’t the militarized police response – or the minor incidences of looting, rock-throwing and possibly Molotov cocktails by a handful of protesters – but a crackdown by government on all protest:

What we’re seeing in Ferguson, this is not a local issue, really. I mean, this is something that’s been driven by national policies, by policies that Congress has approved of and has oversight of, and could end tomorrow, if they wanted to.

Europe’s Greater Depression is worse than the 1930s

Europe hasn't recovered, because it hasn't let itself. Too much fiscal austerity and too little monetary stimulus have, instead, put it more than halfway to a lost decade that's already worse than the 1930s.

It's a greater depression.

St. Louis County Police Chief learned "anti-terror" tactics at 'Anti-Defamation' League organized training program in Israel

UPDATED with correction and additional information on ADL/U.S. Justice Department collusion in police training below. The U.S. 'Justice' Department that will investigate Ferguson police brutality has paid the ADL grants to train those police.

We've been warning about U.S. police officers training in 'anti-terrorism' at ADL organized programs in Israel for many years HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE and elsewhere at this space. And now these Counterfeit Israel trained cops are terrorizing U.S. citizens like Palestinians as a direct consequence.

7 Pages to Drone Kill an American Citizen

That’s all that current 1st Circuit Court Judge and then acting OLC head David Barron needed — in February 2010 — to dispense with niceties like the Constitution and Rule of Law before he okayed the drone killing of Anwar al-Awlaki.

Lucky for Barron — and President Obama — International Law scholar Kevin Jon Heller, never having seen that 7 page memo, raised some things Barron hadn’t considered. Which led Barron to write a still totally laughable but nevertheless less ridiculous 41-page memo 5 months later, which Barron’s friends insist is not-so-bad if you want to rationalize drone killing an American with no due process.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Due process lies at the heart and soul of the American judicial process.

But if Obama can rationalize this extrajudicial assassination, what is to keep Obama from performing extrajudicial assassinations against Americans right here at home?

And terrifyingly, the short answer is, not much.

I am a Christian pacifist who never advocates violence, but am reasonably adept at throwing a great deal of logic at various administrations with which I have been morally at odds (and that includes MOST of them, recently).

In a country where the military/industrial complex and security/industrial complex constantly screams for war as the only solution to America's problems, will I be branded as someone who speaks a litany of "inconvenient truths" to the point where, under the language of the NDAA, I can be involuntarily confined INDEFINITELY, with no due process?!?

Unfortunately, right now in this country, the short answer to this is, absolutely.

People with skills and kids, please get the hell out of this country before it is absolutely too late, and no one is allowed to leave, and the silicon curtain falls.

ALL WARS ARE BANKERS' WARS! THE ORIGINAL ARTICLE

"If the Nation can issue a dollar bond it can issue a dollar bill. The element that makes the bond good makes the bill good also. The difference between the bond and the bill is that the bond lets the money broker collect twice the amount of the bond and an additional 20%. Whereas the currency, the honest sort provided by the Constitution pays nobody but those who contribute in some useful way. It is absurd to say our Country can issue bonds and cannot issue currency. Both are promises to pay, but one fattens the usurer and the other helps the People. " -- Thomas A. Edison

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the original article from which the popular YouTube video was created. There have been some additions to this and with war clearly being fomented by the United States against ... everyone, I figured it was time for a report!

New Video of SWAT Team Attack on Al-Jazeera in Ferguson You Haven’t Seen

Infowars reporter Jakari Jackson was standing behind Al-Jazeera America and recorded this footage of the SWAT team purposely shooting at an obvious news crew who announced their presence.

“This is press over here! Why are you shooting at us with bullets?” One of Al-Jazeera’s reporters yelled to the SWAT team. “This is media over here trying to cover the story!”

The SWAT team responded by shooting tear gas at the reporters, who were by themselves blocks away from the nearest protestor.

After previous footage of the attack went viral across the globe, the St. Charles County Sheriff’s Department responded by stating that “SWAT team officers were assisting the media in moving their camera equipment and media personnel to a safer area with their consent so that they could continue to cover the event.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I do so LOVE how American cops, all over this nation, are interpreting the phrase "to protect and serve" in this country.

At the moment, in any state in this country, police are behaving in terrorizing ways against the people they are allegedly there to help.

At this point, never, EVER call the police if you see something suspicious; you are much more likely to get your own head blown off in such a circumstance, even if you have absolutely nothing to do with what is happening.

Take a fire arms safety course, get a gun, if you can, and be able to protect yourself, calmly and cautiously, should something happen from which you need to protect you and yours.

But what I am seeing in this case, outside of the police attempting to collectively lie their heads off, is a very clear pattern of trying to flame up controversy, and riots, across the country.

So to all our brothers and sisters of all backgrounds and creeds, please understand something: this Administration would love NOTHING less than to suspend the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and invoke martial law on this country. And perhaps, even suspend this year's Congressional election.

So, peaceful protests? Absolutely.

But be aware; there may well be agents-provocateurs among you, inserted by the government in order to inflame crowds to get them to do really dumb things.

The smelly person advocating the use of Molotov cocktails against any law enforcement agency is most likely an undercover CIA/FBI/DHS plant, tasked with making you look really bad and evil.

Order Out Of Chaos: The Doctrine That Runs The World

From the days of Spartacus-Weishaupt to those of Karl Marx, and down to Trotsky (Russia), Bela Kun (Hungary), Rosa Luxembourg (Germany), and Emma Goldman (United States), this world-wide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilization and for the reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence, and impossible equality, has been steadily growing. It played, as a modern writer, Mrs. Webster, has so ably shown, a definitely recognizable part in the tragedy of the French Revolution. It has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the Nineteenth Century; and now at last this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their heads and have become practically the undisputed masters of that enormous empire. - Winston Churchill, February 1920, in an article that appeared in the Illustrated Sunday Herald
