Will Paris Attacks Renew Call to Ban Guns?

I guess my overarching point is that there will always be evil in the world. There will be people who believe they are righteously killing in the name of their religion. There will be people who are crazy, there will be gangs, there will be drug addicts, and there will be rapists and pedophiles, serial killers and burglars. Let’s deal with all of them first and maybe we can talk about guns then. If you can’t get rid of evil, I don’t want you getting rid of my right to defend myself from it.

IRS keeps Albuquerque Tea Party in limbo 5 years after tax-exempt status application

Before there were the lost Lerner emails, the congressional hearings and the retaliatory budget cuts, there was the Albuquerque Tea Party, a group of politically minded folks in New Mexico who wanted to get together and share ideas for taking back their country. The IRS had other ideas about them.

Five years after the Albuquerque Tea Party applied for tax-exempt status under section 501(c)(4) of the tax code, they remain in limbo — their application apparently no closer to being approved or denied than it was the day they mailed it to the IRS on Dec. 29, 2009.

Turkish President's Stunning Outburst: The French Are Behind The Charlie Hebdo Massacre; Mossad Blamed

It was less than 48 hours ago when Turkey’s prime minister, Ahmet Davutoglu, joined millions marching in Paris to pay tribute to the 17 people killed by ISIS-supporting extremists. Then, almost the moment he got back, things changed, and as the FT politely paraphrases what transpired, the "country’s president struck a much more confrontational tone." That's one way of putting it. Another is that the former PM and current president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, of NATO-member Turkey did the unthinkable: accused the west, and French citizens in particular, of staging the Charlie Hebdo murder in order to blame Muslims, even as the mayor of Ankara said "Mossad is definitely behind such incidents?.?.?.?it is boosting enmity towards Islam."

Four Ways the West Got the Iran Nuclear Issue Wrong by GARETH PORTER

conclusion snip: Major contradictions between information in the papers and the independently verifiable timelines of Iran’s missile and nuclear programmes indicated that the authors were not Iranian specialists. The re-entry vehicle depicted in the studies, for example, was not the one that Iran was redesigning at the time and that was revealed to the world only after the documents were handed over.

El Baradei also revealed that a subsequent series of intelligence documents, which included the claim that Iran had installed a large cylinder at Parchin to test atomic weapons designs, had been passed on to the IAEA directly by Israel. That intelligence proved to be equally problematic: former IAEA nuclear weapons expert Robert Kelley found the Parchin cylinder claim technically implausible.

These are the biggest hypocrites celebrating free speech today in Paris

France’s prime minister said the people would “cry out their love of liberty.” And they did—marchers in Paris chanted “liberté” in response to the murder of the cartoonists, who were well-known for their provocative cartoons lampooning everyone, regardless of taste or decency.

But as Daniel Wickham points out (as amplified by the journalist Glenn Greenwald), many of the 40 leaders attending the rally in Paris don’t have the best record of defending the principle of free speech so viciously attacked earlier this week:

Ron Paul: reality now setting in for America

Reality is now setting in for America and for that matter for most of the world. Let’s make 2015 a fun year for LIBERTY.

It was all based on lies and ignorance. Many came to believe that their best interests were served by giving up a little freedom now and then to gain a better life.

The trap was set. At the beginning of a cycle that systematically undermines liberty with delusions of easy prosperity, the change may actually seem to be beneficial to a few. But to me that’s like excusing embezzlement as a road to leisure and wealth — eventually payment and punishment always come due. One cannot escape the fact that a society’s wealth cannot be sustained or increased without work and productive effort. Yes, some criminal elements can benefit for a while, but reality always sets in.

Press Release: The World Bank and the IMF Open up Ukraine to Western Interests

A new report from the Oakland Institute, Walking on the West Side: the World Bank and the IMF in the Ukraine Conflict,exposes how the international financial institutions swooped in on the heels of the political upheaval and are vying to deregulate and throw open Ukraine’s vast agricultural sector to foreign investors. Former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych’s rejection of an EU Association agreement in favor of a Russian deal was a major factor in the crisis that led to his ouster in February 2014. Immediately following the change to a pro-EU government, the country’s pivot to the West was solidified with a $17 billion loan from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and an additional $3.5 billion aid package from the World Bank, both of which require significant economic reforms and austerity measures that are set to have disastrous effects within the nation.

Freedom of speech is a French myth

It is now being promoted that the French media is free to publish anything as a fundamental right without restrictions of any kind; this is a myth. For example, French law does not permit the publication of material that promotes the use of drugs; hatred based on race or gender; insults about the national flag and anthem; or questions about the Nazi Holocaust. Dieudonné M'Bala, a French comedian and satirist, was convicted and fined in a French court for describing Holocaust remembrance as "memorial pornography".

DOJ calls for dismissal of Twitter transparency lawsuit over gov't records requests

The US Department of Justice has called for the dismissal of a lawsuit filed by Twitter, in which the social network alleges its First Amendment rights are violated when the government forbids it to reveal national security requests for user data.

Twitter’s lawsuit concerns the publishing of transparency reports that detail government requests for customer information. A deal struck in January 2014 between the Department of Justice (DOJ) and five technology companies relaxed restrictions on disclosure, but Twitter has argued that the deal did not go far enough in allowing the companies to reveal exactly how many orders it gets from the government and “what types of legal process have not been received.”

John Williams (shadowstats.com) on the December payroll jobs report and unemployment rate

snip: [The 23% unemployment rate is consistent with the declining Civilian Employment-Population Ratio and the declining Labor Force Participation Rate. The rise in discouraged workers is reflected in the decline in these ratios.]

[Are you surprised that the government lies about the number of new jobs and the unemployment rate? Why are you surprised? The government lies about everything–”Iraqi weapons of mass destruction,” “Iranian nukes,” “Assad’s use of chemical weapons,” “Russia’s invasion of Ukraine,” etc.]

[John Williams also reports that the Birth/Death Model used by the Bureau of Labor Statistics assumes that more jobs are created each month by new startups than are lost by companies going out of business. The excess of new startups over closures currently adds an average of 61,000 jobs each month. In other words, these jobs are spun off of the assumptions of a model and are likely to be phantom jobs.]

It doesn’t matter what it is – just that it is seen as the enemy because that is in the interests of hegemonic Western capital.

March of the Hypocrites In Paris they march for "free speech" – and they’ll soon be marching off to war by Justin Raimondo

snips: There’s something more than a little counterintuitive about McCain’s call for a no-fly zone: after all, ISIS doesn’t have an air force, while the most effective counterweight to them – the Syrian government – does indeed. If McCain’s concern is ISIS, then why go after Bashar al-Assad? And as for arming the Syrian Free Army: those arms are more than likely to show up in the hands of ISIS.
[...]
In a more general sense, the principle of "blowback" operates in the terrorists’ favor as the US and its allies get more deeply involved in Syria and Iraq: if the Western powers follow McCain’s advice, jihadists will stream from Europe to the region in even greater numbers and the legitimacy of the "Caliphate" in the eyes of Muslims everywhere is increased. McCain and his fellow interventionists have a symbiotic relationship with the terrorists: both are legitimized on the home front by the actions of the other.

Patricia Aitken, Updates from Bundy Ranch – BLM Standoff – 1.10.15

As part of the BLM’s “management” of “Federal Land”, the BLM issues what is called RMP/EIS, or Resource Management Plan/Environmental Impact Studies. The BLM, as part of a government agency, is required to hold a series of public meetings to meet with the “stakeholders”, including the public, when setting any formal government policy.

In order to meet this requirement, the BLM held a series of public meetings in Clark and Nye Counties in order to, ostensibly, enable the public to comment on the recent RMP/EIS for Nevada.

What was learned was that the BLM is not allowing “public” public comment and is only taking comments via email or court reporters. Also, it was learned that the recent RMP/EIS took over 6 years to write and was put together in clandestine cooperation with the various Counties in Nevada and kept secret through a series of signed NDA’s (non-disclosure agreements).

The Ron Paul Bumper Sticker Is Still On My Car- "Beautiful Loser..." Tribute Video: As the video caption states, "Remember the good times.. a tribute to Dr. Paul and his supporters who love liberty." I remember very well how a lot of people were not happy with the outcome of the 2007 campaign and the way it ended. I also know a lot of people didn't support the 2012 campaign with the same spirit and hopefulness. I was not involved in the 2012 campaign at all. But that's not the point here. The spirit and hope of the people at that time, during the grassroots 2007 campaign, to me, was something much more meaningful and revealing than just about the man Ron Paul, strengths and flaws.
If you know what I mean- It was about eternal the hope of how things could be. And that is why that time will always be special. The Fight for Liberty is eternal.

NYPD Orders Cops to Meet Arrest, Summons Quotas Or Lose Vacation Time, Sick Leave

Rolling Stone writer Matt Taibbi penned, “This police protest, unwittingly, is leading to the exposure of the very policies that anger so many different constituencies about modern law-enforcement tactics,” noting the fact that NYPD’s “broken windows” style of policing, in which the enforcement of smaller, discretionary crimes in “hot spot” neighborhoods is given top priority, has been pinpointed by community activists as a source of tension between police and residents in targeted neighborhoods. According to NYPD police officers interviewed by The Daily Beast, many New York cops enjoy the slowdown and prefer focusing on what they call “good arrests” that protect the public, rather than discretionary offenses aimed at raising revenue for the city.

Once a police department registers its inventory with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, it is accountable only to itself for how it uses the stockpile. ProPublica’s review of flashbang injuries found no criminal convictions against police officers who injured citizens with the devices.

Ditching the Dollar

One of the symptoms of a declining empire is that it becomes less and less productive and therefore less relevant to other countries. Any empire, whilst in its prime, will have a strong currency. As its productive relevance declines, so will its currency. Invariably, its leaders attempt to keep the currency strong, in spite of the decline in national relevance. Rather than return to a more productive condition, the empire almost invariably resorts to force.

The US has been unusually forceful in this regard. In order to retain the dollar as the currency upon which oil is denominated and paid for, the US has attacked countries (Iraq, Libya) when their leaders have announced that they will, in future, accept other currencies or gold as payment for oil.

Today the Government is assuring us that Al Qaeda, Bobo Haram, Saudi Arabia, and Muslims in general are in the final stages of a plot to carry out multiple terror attacks on Europe and the United States. Funny how they can know there is a plot, and that it is in its final stages, but don't know what the target is, or who is doing it. Funny. Really funny. Almost too weird to be believed, in fact!

Need To Know

Some voiced discomfort that the march’s dominant slogan became “Je suis Charlie,” or “I am Charlie,” because despite unwavering support for free speech, they feel the cartoons the magazine has published in its history are offensive, and in some cases amount to hate speech. Then there was criticism that among the 40 or so world leaders who led the Paris march were some — including from Israel, Egypt, Russia, and France itself — who have questionable records on free speech. Then there was this comment from a veteran Charlie Hebdo cartoonist: “We vomit on all those people who are suddenly saying they are our friends.”

EU response to free speech killings? More internet censorship

In the wake of this week’s terrorist attacks in Paris, which began with the killing of 12 people at the offices of satirical publication Charlie Hebdo, the interior ministers of 12 EU countries have called for a limited increase in internet censorship.

The interior ministers of France, Germany, Latvia, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Sweden and the U.K. said in a statement (PDF) that, while the internet must remain “in scrupulous observance of fundamental freedoms, a forum for free expression, in full respect of the law,” ISPs need to help “create the conditions of a swift reporting of material that aims to incite hatred and terror and the condition of its removing, where appropriate/possible.”

The real reason Bibi wants French Jews to move to Israel

snip: Strange. The leader of a country that is constantly in a state of war, and that every few years actually goes to war, is imploring France’s Jews to leave their country in the wake of two terrorist attacks (one of which was not directed at a Jewish target), and move to Israel. Even if we ignore the downright chutzpah of his demand vis-a-vis the French government (try imagining a leader of a Western state calling on Israelis to immigrate to his country because of the security situation in Israel), no one doubts that French Jewish immigrants will be in much greater danger living in Israel. Perhaps our foreign minister would do well to update Netanyahu on the travel warnings issued fairly often for our country?

Spitting On Other People’s Prophets Is Not A Western Value

In 2009, The Jerusalem Post published an exposé of the growing tendency of Orthodox Jews in Jerusalem to spit on their Christian neighbours. (‘Mouths Filled with Hatred’, By Larry Derfner The JPost, Nov. 26, 2009). Israel Shahak also commented on Jewish hatred of Christianity and its symbols, suggesting, “Dishonouring Christian religious symbols is an old religious duty in Judaism.” According to Shahak, “spitting on the cross, and especially on the Crucifix, and spitting when a Jew passes a church, have been obligatory from around AD 200 for pious Jews.”

Interestingly, Jewish spitting has had an impact on the urban landscape of Europe. The following can be read in a ‘Travel Guide for Jewish Europe.’

Indiana town moves to seize over 350 homes to make room for private developer

A town is working to “demolish a working-class neighborhood” by seizing 354 homes and passing the land off to a private commercial developer. Using federal dollars and the highly-abused power of eminent domain, the city intends to evict multitudes of families to make way for economic progress.

The community under fire is called “Pleasant Ridge.” It contains hundreds of small homes that were built during World War II as military housing. Today the homes are privately-owned and contain working-class and poor families, many of which have owned their homes for decades.

The City of Charlestown intends to demolish the community in order to allow new commercial and residential real estate to be built in its place — privately-owned real estate.

With Power of Social Media Growing, Police Now Monitoring and Criminalizing Online Speech By Glenn Greenwald

snip: In other words: you’re allowed, by our generosity, to mentally harbor your vile opinions. But if you try to publicly advocate them on Facebook, convince others to believe them, or teach them to your children, then you are a dangerous criminal who belongs in prison.

Needless to say, this judge would never lecture, let alone sentence, anyone for “holding to an ideology” that advocates violence by the British government in Muslim countries, nor parents who indoctrinate their children to join the British military, nor those who led that country to invade and destroy Iraq in an aggressive war. To understand the point, one need not equate these views or view some as better than others. The point is that this is the state punishing expression of some viewpoints while sanctioning others. This is about criminalizing specific views anathema to the government’s policies, outlawing particular value systems.

Martin Luther King assassinated by US Govt: King Family civil trial verdict

*hyperlinks live at source*

Coretta Scott King: “We have done what we can to reveal the truth, and we now urge you as members of the media, and we call upon elected officials, and other persons of influence to do what they can to share the revelation of this case to the widest possible audience.” – King Family Press Conference, Dec. 9, 1999.

Dr. King’s 2-minute message to you:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lrpqnZYAB6w

Dr. Martin Luther King’s family and personal friend/attorney, William F. Pepper, won a civil trial that found US government agencies guilty of assassination/wrongful death. The 1999 trial, King Family versus Jowers and Other Unknown Co-Conspirators, is the only trial ever conducted on the assassination of Dr. King. The King Center fully documents the case, with full trial transcript. Bill Pepper’s site has the civil trial on video.

The overwhelming evidence of US government complicity found valid by the jury includes:

New ‘Monsanto Law’ in Africa Would Force GMOs on Farmers

The front lines of the food sovereignty war in Ghana are swelling as the national parliament gives support to the Plant Breeders Bill. This proposed legislation contains rules that would restrict farmers from ancient practices: freely saving, swapping, and breeding seeds. Under new laws protecting the intellectual property rights of biotech, farmers would be subject to hefty fines for growing anything that has been ‘patented,’ even if their crops were cross-pollinated.

The obviously biotech-infiltrated Ghanaian government states that the new laws would “incentivize the development of new seed varieties to ensure the marketability of crops,” but farmers argue it gives rights straight to corporations like Monsanto, and not farmers who have been growing food in Ghana for centuries.

The Republic is No More. We Now Live in a Police State.Anthony Freda Art By Ron Paul

If Americans were honest with themselves they would acknowledge that the Republic is no more. We now live in a police state. If we do not recognize and resist this development, freedom and prosperity for all Americans will continue to deteriorate. All liberties in America today are under siege.

It didn’t happen overnight. It took many years of neglect for our liberties to be given away so casually for a promise of security from the politicians. The tragic part is that the more security was promised — physical and economic — the less liberty was protected.

The false debate between freedom of expression and religious extremism

After the deadly attack, many cartoonists reduced the event to a confrontation between an armed, bearded jihadist and a pen. A simple representation, yet it is both powerful and misleading.

After the 9/11 terrorist attacks, George W. Bush and many like-minded politicians and media outlets confined the attacks to a fight between evil (the "Islamic terrorists") and good (the United States and its allies), or between the free world (led by the United States) and oppression (led by Al-Qaeda and the Taliban).

When Bush famously proclaimed "you are either with us or you're with the terrorists," he truly believed that he had received a divine message to liberate Muslim countries from oppression. He consequently built all of his political and war strategies around this sort of "prophecy."

Michigan Residents Desperately Seek 'Global Warming' As State Police & Homeland Security Issue Warning for "These Extremely Cold And Potentially Life-Threatening Temperatures."

While the Michigan State Government has spent funds teaching Al Gore's 'An Inconvenient Truth' and issued executive orders on 'Action Taken to Address Global Warming in Michigan,' the Michigan State Police, Emergency Management and Homeland Security Division issued a press release last week to "Be Prepared and Safe during Extreme Cold."

The document warns "As we saw last winter, these arctic blasts can create hazardous situations. Citizens are encouraged to monitor local weather reports and follow the appropriate steps to stay safe during these extremely cold and potentially life-threatening temperatures.
The National Weather Service is forecasting statewide wind chills to periodically dip down to 20 degrees below zero or lower through at least Thursday, Jan. 8. Exposure to these temperatures could potentially cause frostbite and hypothermia, as well as create hazardous driving conditions."

Mourning Charlie Hebdo Journalists, While Ignoring that US-NATO State-Sponsored Terrorism is the “Number One Killer” of Journalists By Julie Lévesque

snip: Before the James Foley and Steven Sotloff beheadings dozens of journalists were killed in Syria by terrorists armed, trained and financed by NATO countries and their antidemocratic allies such as Saudi Arabia. Hundreds of civilians had also been beheaded long before them, around 200 in one single village, according to a Human Rights Watch report. (See Julie Lévesque, The History of ISIS Beheadings: Part of the “Training Manual” of US Sponsored Syria “Pro-Democracy” Terrorists, Global Research, September 19, 2014)

The outrage and indignation, however, was reserved for the Western beheaded journalists. The war in Syria has been deadly for journalists, with 153 killed according to some estimates, thanks to NATO-sponsored terrorism. No Western journalist holding signs of compassion for Syrian journalists has been seen.

The Police Threat Is Too High Paul Craig Roberts

snip: In other words, any encounter between the public and the police is more than 20 times more dangerous for the public than for the police.

That should raise questions about the absence of restraint on the ability of police to use deadly force as a first resort. Yet authorities and white communities invariably defend police violence against the public.

If Americans had half-decent educations, Americans would know that power comes from precedent. The police, like the executive branch, have now established themselves above the law. The laws that apply to the public do not apply to police, US presidents, presidential appointees, NSA, and CIA.

Austerity has plunged the economy into conditions worse than in the Great Depression. As Professor Bill Black observes, the question is not why the Greek people are rising up to reject the barbarous measures but what took them so long.

...Goldman has spawned an unusual number of EU and US officials with dictatorial power to promote and protect big-bank interests. They include US Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin, who brokered the repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act in 1999 and passage of the Commodity Futures Modernization Act in 2000; Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, who presided over the 2008 Wall Street bailout; Mario Draghi, current head of the European Central Bank; Mario Monti, who led a government of technocrats as Italian prime minister; and Bank of England Governor Mark Carney, chair of the Financial Stability Board that sets financial regulations for the G20 countries.

The farce of Western free speech

Western free speech is nothing but a cynical charade by those in power to maintain their unlawful positions of power.

A satirical magazine championed by Western war criminals for its “free speech” to dehumanize Muslims is hailed as “heroic?” While an informative, serious news channel like Press TV is banned. Now that is farcical cartoon.

Evidently, it’s acceptable to insult Islam, according to Western select use of free speech because it suits political agendas of demonizing Muslim countries so that they can be attacked with Western warplanes or covert terrorist proxies. But it is not acceptable to satirize Zionism or Western ruling classes.

The Move to Muzzle Dieudonné M’Bala M’Bala

French mainstream media and politicians are starting off the New Year with a shared resolution for 2014: permanently muzzle a Franco-African comedian who is getting to be too popular among young people.

In between Christmas and New Year’s Eve, no less than the President of the Republic, François Hollande, while visiting Saudi Arabia on (very big) business, said his government must find a way to ban performances by the comedian Dieudonné M’Bala M’Bala, as called for by French Interior Minister, Manuel Valls.

The leader of the conservative opposition party, UMP, Jean-François Copé, immediately chimed in with his “total support” for silencing the unmanageable entertainer.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In the eyes of the French, Dieudonné must be silenced because of his criticism of Israel, which is declared anti-Semitic, while Charlie Bebdo (which fired one of its own writers for anti-Semitism) is being lionized as martyrs to freedom of expression for publishing this...

This...

And this!

Charlie Hebdo has to be a propaganda front, because I cannot imagine the French (or anyone else) actually buying magazines with illustrations like this in it!

U.S. DOT Opens U.S. Border To Mexican Trucks "Marking A Significant Milestone In Implementation Of NAFTA"- Inspector General Warns That Safety of Mexican Carriers Has Not Been Shown

The U.S. Department of Transportation announced today that Mexican motor carriers will soon be able to apply for authority to conduct long-haul, cross-border trucking services in the United States. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx insisted they have proven "a level of safety at least as high as their American and Canadian counterparts."

However, in a report issued last month, The Office of Inspector General concluded the opposite, noting "Because the pilot program lacked an adequate number of participants, we could not determine with confidence whether the 15 carriers are representative. Without being able to determine the representativeness of the 15 carriers, one cannot project the safety performance for the population of Mexico-domiciled carriers that may qualify for long-haul operating authority in the future."

When We Call Criminal Acts 'Terrorism' We Destroy Our Rights And Sacrifice Our Principles

Terrorism works. Against us, terrorism works very, very well. Our collective insistence on treating terrorist acts as something categorically different than crime—as something harder to understand, something scarier, something perpetrated not by humans but by monsters—feeds the ultimate goals of terrorists. It makes us dumb. It makes us primitive. It is our boogeyman, and no amount of rational talk will drive it out of our minds.

Judge Orders NYPD to Release Records on X-ray Vans

A state judge has ordered the New York City Police Department to release records on a secretive program that uses unmarked vans equipped with X-ray machines to detect bombs.

ProPublica filed the request as part of its investigation into the proliferation of security equipment, including airport body scanners, that expose people to ionizing radiation, which can mutate DNA and increase the risk of cancer.

Hey Everyone, CISPA Is Back... Because Of The Sony Hack, Which It Wouldn't Have Prevented

This isn't a huge surprise, but Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger, the NSA's personal Rep in Congress (NSA HQ is in his district), has announced that he's bringing back CISPA, the cybersecurity bill designed to make it easier for the NSA to access data from tech companies (that's not how the bill's supporters frame it, but that's the core issue in the bill). In the past, Ruppersberger had a teammate in this effort, Rep. Mike Rogers, but Rogers has moved onto his new career as a radio and TV pundit (CNN just proudly announced hiring him), so Ruppersberger is going it alone this time around.

Not surprisingly, he's using the Sony Hack as a reason for why this bill is needed:

“The reason I’m putting bill in now is I want to keep the momentum going on what’s happening out there in the world,” Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger... told The Hill in an interview, referring to the recent Sony hack, which the FBI blamed on North Korea.

Obama’s Narrative of Deceits By Jason Hirthler

snip: If the American public knew what was being perpetrated in its name, it might put an end to the slow-motion coup d’état of the United States by corporate wealth. But it is kept in the shadows, pinioned by a harness of half-truths that underwrite its ignorance and enable its indifference.

The public will likely remain in this state until it hears the whole truth, and not the abridged version peddled by an unscrupulous administration, its Pavlovian Cabinet, our obsequious Congress, and the sycophant media (those dutiful court stenographers of state power). Until this confederacy of knaves is exposed at scale, the Janus-faced narrative streaming from the lips of the Commander-in-Chief — whomever he or she may be — will neither change nor falter. Ringing in a New Year will not matter.

Who profits from killing Charlie? By Pepe Escobar

And the icing on the lethal cake; faultless Paris-based logistical support to pull that off. A former top French military commander, Frederic Gallois, has stressed the perfect application of "urban guerrilla technique" (where are those notorious Western counter-terrorism "experts" when one needs them?) [...]
What French President Francois Hollande defined as "an act of exceptional barbarism" - and it is - does not apply when the "West", France in the front line, from King Sarko to General Hollande himself, weaponizes, trains and remote-controls assorted mercenaries/beheaders from Libya to Syria. Oh yeah; killing civilians in Tripoli or Aleppo is perfectly all right. But don't do that in Paris.

Fighting remains ongoing. Illegitimate oligarch president Petro Poroshenko's so-called "silence regime" exists in name only. Vowing to crush Donbas democracy. Institute hardline rule. Target anyone resisting Kiev ruthlessness. Donbas conditions are horrific. Kiev periodically cuts off water and electricity. In areas it doesn't control. Residents without financial resources can't buy essentials. AI reported Dnipro-1, Aidar, and other pro-Kiev battalions blocking roads into Donetsk People's Republic controlled areas. Lugansk affected the same way. Denying most aid convoys entry. At least four humanitarian foundation Rinat Akrmetov missions were blocked.

Just As The Islamic State (ISIL) Gets Exposed As A Fake US Enemy, A “Wag the Dog” Terrorist Attack in Paris? By Joachim Hagopian

snip: Using terrorist mercenaries comes in handy to fight US Empire’s proxy wars where bulk deployment of more American troop invasions from a war-weary nation would not be tolerated. So 1400 US military “advisors” to coordinate the fake war against ISIL in Iraq also becomes the flimsy excuse to go after Syria after all. Taking down Assad in Syria is still the flimsy excuse to then go after Iran, the final Middle East conquest. Of course taking down Iran remains the ever so worn out excuse to also go after cold war enemy Russia [again]. This deceptive strategy and bottom line agenda masquerades as the actual US presence throughout the Middle East. Only by now the world is onto US Empire aggression. The humanitarian rhetoric of lies will no longer work as that game hand’s been played too many times before. No one will be fooled any more, not even the Americans.

“The police, in this slowdown, they are halting handing out parking tickets, which are enormously lucrative for the city, and they are also not doing these ‘quality of life’ summonses, which are a huge hardship on the people who get them but make significantly less money for the city. So there are two different things going on here,” he said.

OF THE LIARS, BY THE LIARS, AND FOR THE LIARS

Let's start with some basic concepts. You live in an age of lies. Every day of your life you are literally being drowned in lies. Lies by government. Lies by advertisers. Lies by the corporate media.

Truth has become such a valuable commodity that the government is economizing it!

Liars, meaning good convincing liars (i.e. sociopaths, who evince no guilt when they lie) , lie because they are able to get what they want from people, especially if those people are conditioned from childhood to tell and to believe that others will tell the truth.

It may seem that I am stating the obvious, but the point I want to make is that all ruling power is, is the willingness and ability to do things the ruled may not, or have been conditioned to believe they cannot do.

You are taught not to steal, yet government reserves to itself the right to steal, obfuscating the theft with words like excise, confiscation, pillage, taxation, and in the extreme, conquest.

Paris Terror Attack: 2nd Hostage Situation Reported in France

With negotiations underway in a hostage standoff with the suspected gunmen in Wednesday's massacre at a French satirical newspaper office, a second hostage situation was reported in eastern Paris Friday, police told ABC News.

Heavily armed SWAT teams moved into Porte de Vincennes after the second hostage situation developed at a kosher grocery, involving a gunman and at least one hostage. Police told ABC News that a suspect in a Thursday fatal shooting of a police officer in Paris's Monrouge area -- identified as Amedi Coulibaly, 32 -- is believed to be involved with the grocery standoff.

“the provisions of the Sixth Amendment establish the federal criminal justice system on an adversarial model, where the government and the defendant, as opposing parties, are to be of relatively equal strength… This system collapses in federal terrorism cases because the government enjoys overwhelming advantages, principally its ability to impose SAMs and classify evidence as well as its power to engage in vast surveillance and secrecy.”

Obama Has Killed More People with Drones than Died on 9/11

Obama has increased the number of drone attacks in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen and elsewhere.

Law school teacher Marjorie Cohn – president of the National Lawyers Guild – writes:

"Obama has killed more people with drones than died on 9/11. Many of those killed were civilians, and only a tiny percentage of the dead were al-Qaeda or Taliban leaders."

Is she right?

$7,514,567,086,650 Added to National Debt Under Obama So Far

If this entire story looks like made-up gobbledygook fiction figures, that’s because these numbers are almost too big to truly fathom. Guess keeping all those simultaneous wars going and going and going takes a lot of dough.

Waging War on Islam by Stephen Lendman

snip: MSM hype anti-Islamic bigotry. Finger-pointing the wrong way. Blaming innocent Muslims for false flag attacks.

America's phony war on terror persists. Not a single independently verified Muslim terror plot in America was foiled. No real terrorists were arrested. None!

Fabricated ones were hyped. Previous articles discussed a fake shoe bomber. Fake underwear bomber. Fake Times Square bombers.

Fake shampoo bombers. Fake Al Qaeda woman planning fake mass casualty attacks on New York landmarks.

Fake Oregon bomber. Fake armed forces recruiting station bomber. Fake synagogue bombers. Fake Chicago Sears Tower bombers.

Fake FBI and other government buildings bombers. Fake National Guard, Fort Dix, and Quantico marine base attackers.

Fake Boston bombers. Fake 9/11 ones. Numerous others. Incidents usually strategically timed. It remains to be seen what follows Wednesday's Paris killings.

Mark Levin warns: Obama preparing country for coup against Constitution

Earlier this week, conservative talk show host Mark Levin warned that Barack Obama is campaigning and preparing the country for what amounts to a coup against the Constitution over the debt ceiling, Breitbart.com reported Sunday.

Levin said that it's clear Obama has moved on from the shutdown and is now focused on the debt ceiling, paving the way for low-information liberals to support him as he bypasses Congress and unilaterally seizes control of the nation’s economy, Dr. Susan Berry wrote..

Charlie Hebdo and Tsarnaev’s Trial: Qui bono? by Paul Craig Roberts

snip: The Roman question is always: Who benefits? The answer is: Not France, not Muslims, but US world hegemony. US hegemony over the world is what the CIA supports. US world hegemony is the neoconservative-imposed foreign policy of the US.

According to National Public Radio, Charlie Hebdo is about free speech. The US has free speech, claim NPR’s pundits, but terrorists have taken it away from the French.

Just how does the US have free speech when NY Times reporter James Risen was psychologically put on the rack to force him to reveal his source, despite the fact that Risen and his source are protected by the US Constitution and whistleblower protections. Clearly, in the US “national security” has trumped everything else.

MASSACHUSETTS LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES CLAIM THEY'RE CORPORATIONS AND THEY'RE EXEMPT FROM FOIA REQUESTS

A public records battle is brewing in Massachusetts between the state’s ACLU regional chapter and a coalition of law enforcement agencies who have formed a private corporation and are now claiming they are exempt from public records laws. The North Eastern Massachusetts Law Enforcement Council, or “NEMLEC,” is a 501(c)(3) corporation formed by 58 city police and sheriff’s departments in Middlesex and Essex County, Massachusetts. Each of the member departments has committed to devote 10 percent of its resources to NEMLEC when needed, pays annual dues, and in return can call in NEMLEC’s resources when requested.

Iowa cop shoots woman dead in front of family, while trying to pacify their dog

An Iowa cop shot and killed a 34-year-old woman in front of her husband and four-year-old son. Witnesses say he was aiming for the family dog, which startled him as he was trying to break up an argument between the couple.

The victim, Autumn Mae Steele, of South Garden Ave. in Burlington, Iowa, was pronounced dead on arrival at hospital on Tuesday.

I guess "Pacify" means "shoot."

Policing comes to a stop in New York, people get along peacefully and society continues

We are constantly reminded by State institutions, from lecture halls to mainstream "news" organizations, that if it weren't for the police out there arresting everybody, society would break down immediately.

Oh there will be the motorcycle gangs with flamethrowers invading supermarkets, the wild-eyed adolescents disobeying teachers and leaving school, the religious conservatives forming new dictatorships, the horde of unwashed illegal immigrants urinating on our golf courses, the rabid murder parties and fornication spilling onto the streets, zoo animals escaping and mauling the children - the end of human civilization.

Well, there has finally been a "virtual stoppage" of police activity in New York, and the people there are... reading blogs, working, buying groceries, watching netflix, waiting in lines, saying hi to strangers, checking facebook. Same as usual. It looks like they haven't murdered each other yet.

Of course they haven't.

Oklahoma to ban being #Anonymous in public

Oklahoma State Senator Don Barrington introduced SB 13, which amends an existing law. The existing law makes it illegal to conceal your identity while committing a crime for the purpose of coercion, intimidation, or harassment. SB 13 amends that law to make it illegal to conceal your identity in public at any time, even if you are doing something legal, like protesting. Barrington said he wrote the bill in reaction to protesters covering their faces.

Ellen Brown - 5 Big Banks will Survive Next Financial Calamity - Everybody Else Bankrupt


The G-20 met recently in Australia to make new banking rules for the next financial calamity. Financial reform advocate Ellen Brown says these new rules will allow banks to take money from depositors and pensioners globally. Brown explains, “It became rules we agreed to actually implement. There was no treaty, and Congress didn’t agree to all this. They use words so that it’s not obvious to tell what they have done, but what they did was say, basically, that we, the governments, are no longer going to be responsible for bailing out the big banks. These are about 30 international banks. So, you are going to have to save yourselves, and the way you are going to have to do it is by bailing in the money of your creditors. The largest class of creditors of any bank is the depositors.”

Palestinians: On Their Own for Justice by Stephen Lendman

snip: Hold the cheers. The ICC is a Western tool. Serving its interests. Its January 1 statement said:

"(T)he Registrar of the International Criminal Court (ICC), Herman von Hebel, received a document…by the Palestinian government declaring Palestine's acceptance of the jurisdiction of the ICC since 13 June 2014."

"Acceptance of the ICC's jurisdiction does not automatically trigger an investigation."

The ICC was established to prosecute individuals for genocide and aggression. As well as crimes of war and against humanity.

Controlled by Western interests. Functioning as an imperial tool. Petitioning it at most will embarrass Israel.

None of its officials will be held accountable. Business as usual won't change. Palestinians remain isolated on their own.

Robert Fisk is right saying wanting international law enforced won't help them. Demanding justice this way never worked. Why expect something different this time?
