WHAT REALLY HAPPENED | The History The US Government HOPES You Never Learn!


THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

"Since the Bush-Cheney Administration took office in January 2001, controlling the major oil and natural gas fields of the world had been the primary, though undeclared, priority of US foreign policy... Not only the invasion of Iraq, but also the toppling of the Taliban in Afghanistan, had nothing to do with 'democracy,' and everything to do with pipeline control across Central Asia and the militarization of the Middle East." -- F. William Engdahl

Saakashvili as governor of Ukraine’s Odessa region may put fuse to Dniester powder keg

Kiev’s decision to appoint former Georgian President Mikheil Saakashvili as governor of the Odessa Region was surely a US-approved move and may have a variety of far-reaching implications, both internal and external ones. For one, it may cause the smoldering conflict in Transdniestria to flare up with renewed force, Russian experts believe.

The arbitrator’s Friday ruling says the city didn’t prove its case. A city spokesman says an appeal is planned.

The US Government Is Going Down

This is a prophecy regarding “the last days” (v. 1). The description of peace — swords into ploughshares — is one of the most familiar in Western culture. It is a day that men say they dream of.

Let us assume that the day comes to pass. Can you imagine a group of economists calling for the continuation of the sword industry? They would invoke this argument: “If we get out of sword production prematurely, there will be unemployment. This would bring the post-war economy to a screeching halt. What we need is a program of sequential reduction of weapons production that does not disrupt the job market.”

Sovereignty, Sedition and Russia’s Undesirable NGOs

On May 23, 2015 Russian President Vlaldimir Putin signed into law a new bill from the Duma that now gives prosecutors power to declare foreign and international organizations “undesirable” in Russia and shut them down. Predictably US State Department spokesperson, Marie Harf, said the United States is “deeply troubled” by the new law, calling it “a further example of the Russian government’s growing crackdown on independent voices and intentional steps to isolate the Russian people from the world.”

Under Senate rules, it only takes one Senator to object to moving a bill forward. If Paul does object, that could force consideration back to at least Tuesday.

The Other Conspirator: Secret Origins of the CIA's Torture Program

The witness reported men being hung by the feet or the thumbs, waterboarded, given electric shocks to the genitals, and suffering from extended solitary confinement in what he said were indescribably inhumane conditions. It's the sort of description that might have come right out of the executive summary of the Senate torture report released last December. In this case, however, the testimony was not about a "black site" somewhere in the Greater Middle East, nor was it a description from Abu Ghraib, nor in fact from this century at all.

Israel is a repressive, aggressive, lawless, racist police state - ruled by degenerate hate-mongers waging war on Occupied Palestinians and its 20% Arab population.

Netanyahu is an unindicted war criminal - guilty of wars of aggression, mass murder and daily persecution of Palestinians for not being Jews.

He deplores peace, stability, equity and justice. He enforces vicious police state practices. Palestinians challenging Israeli authority risk harassment, beatings, arrest, imprisonment, torture and/or death.

The Hunger Games: New CBS reality show exploits poor families by making them grovel for $101,000

As if to prove there are new depths to be plumbed in the world of reality television (because who knew?), CBS just debuted The Briefcase, a show which takes poverty porn, class anxiety, emotional manipulation and exploitation and packages them all neatly into a pretty despicable hour of primetime television. Kicking off each episode with the question, “What would you do with $101,000?” the show then deep-dives into a competition that asks two unwitting, financially strapped families to choose between two no-win options: being financially solvent yet appearing heartless and greedy, or drowning in debt yet having audiences recognize them as selfless and giving.

Volunteers Threatened with Arrest for Cleaning Up Oil Spill, They Ignored the Cops and Kept Cleaning

For the past several weeks, the Gaviota Coast in California has seen its delicate ecosystem destroyed by an oil spill that poured roughly 100,000 gallons of oil into the ocean. To make matters worse, the volunteers who spontaneously appeared to help clean up the oil, were threatened with arrest by police for tampering with the scene and apparently putting themselves in danger.

The volunteers were the first people on the scene to help, long before the government agents who were hired arrived.

“I was there for about an hour, and we filled 50 five-gallon buckets. Sadly, I must say, there is no way we removed one percent of that spill,” volunteer Ethan Turpin told the Independent.

According to witnesses, the officers had complained that the volunteers did not have safety equipment that was up to code, and they were not cleaning up the spill according to government guidelines. All the while, government or corporate clean-up crews had still not shown up.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I suspect what the police were really doing was preventing the volunteers from putting pictures of the oil disaster on social media!

Law enforcement routinely forges drug tests to put innocent people behind bars

As reported by MintPress News, a number of prisoners -- perhaps thousands -- could be impacted by a state Supreme Judicial Court decision that noted that scores of drug samples were "mishandled" by law enforcement authorities in a manner that produced "forged" results that led to jail sentences.

In a unanimous ruling, justices found that in cases where convictions were obtained based on evidence tainted by chemist Annie Dookhan, new trials can be sought without added charges or more severe sentences being added as a deterrent.

Senate Recesses Without Passing USA Freedom Act

The USA Freedom Act limits bulk collection by refining the allowable search terms, leaves the data in the hands of telecom companies, rather than shipping it off to government servers, and would create liability protections for the phone companies that provide the information, among other things.

One thing it doesn't do is mandate how long the phone companies have to retain the information. Sen. Dan Coats (R-Ind.), who opposed the bill, said that lack of a retention mandate could render the program useless if the companies decided not to retain the data.

Veterans Affairs Gun Lock Program Just ‘Another Obama Back Door Gun Control Measure’

If these officials really just cared about vets having protected guns, they would leave the locks in a location at the VA for people to anonymously grab a few.

NOT SO FAST: Lawyer Wants 'Missing' Clinton Emails Subpoenaed – FROM THE NSA.

Vast quantities of our electronic papers and effects are indexed and archived under each of our names (but of course they are not "collected," since collected, it seems, means looked at, not intercepted, diverted, or recorded). This is common knowledge, no matter how many times Mitch "the-content-of-calls-are-not-captured" McConnell Jr. says otherwise.

How many of us, as we daily are forced to witness our government merge with the good old dystopian fiction we were supposed to have read in school, as we realized the chilling literal reality of the surveillance state erected around us, have nervously joked about putting all that data to good use for a change?

As I have long stated, and the Institute of Medicine (IOM) now admits:

"Vaccines are not free from side effects, or "adverse effects""

This admission came after a review of more than 1,000 vaccine studies, which was intended to assess the scientific evidence in the medical literature about specific adverse events associated with eight vaccines for measles, mumps, rubella (MMR); varicella (chickenpox); influenza; hepatitis A; hepatitis B; HPV; diphtheria, tetanus, acellular pertussis (DtaP); and meningococcal. The adverse events selected for IOM review were ones for which people had submitted vaccine injury claims to the federal Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP). A convincing causal relationship was found for 14 adverse events and certain vaccines.

Supreme Court throws out man’s conviction for Facebook rap lyrics about killing his ex-wife

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday threw out the conviction of a Pennsylvania man found guilty of making threatening statements on Facebook to his estranged wife, law enforcement officers and others.

The court ruled 8-1 in favor of Anthony Elonis, who served prison time for posting a series of statements on the social media site in 2010 after his wife left him.

The case touched upon the rise of social media and how people use it to express strongly held feelings. But the legal question decided by the court was that Elonis needed to be aware of the threatening nature of his communication in order to be convicted. Lower courts had said he could be culpable regardless of whether he believed his messages could be viewed as threatening.

How we got duped by fake chocolate science

It’s been a bad month for science. First, a highly-cited study published in Science that found that voters’ opinions on same-sex marriage could be swayed by conversations with openly gay canvassers was retracted after UC Berkeley grad students pointed out irregularities and one of the study’s authors failed to produce the raw data. That author may also have lied about who funded the study. Then, yesterday, science journalist John Bohannon unveiled in io9 how he tricked the world into thinking that eating a daily dose of chocolate could help you shed pounds by publishing a bogus study in the journal International Archives of Medicine.

On Retraction Watch, a site dedicated to tracking scientific papers that are retracted, newly debunked studies are piling up. The reason we keep getting duped is that science isn’t just science anymore. It’s Big Business.

Who's to blame when fake science gets published?

The now-discredited study got headlines because it offered hope. It seemed to prove that our sense of empathy, our basic humanity, could overcome prejudice and bridge seemingly irreconcilable differences. It was heartwarming, and it was utter bunkum. The good news is that this particular case of scientific fraud isn't going to do much damage to anyone but the people who concocted and published the study. The bad news is that the alleged deception is a symptom of a weakness at the heart of the scientific establishment.

Report: NYC Cops Arrested Men for ‘Manspreading’ on the Subway.

New York police allegedly arrested two men for “manspreading” (sitting with their legs far apart) on the subway, according to a report entitled “That’s How They Get You” released by the Police Reform Organizing Project.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The revival of 90s feminist extremism is already getting into ridiculous levels. For those who are too young to remember, the 90s gender feminist movement spawned the meme that all men are rapists, and militant feminists sought not equality of the sexes, but a reversal of roles. Basically, it was non-stop male-bashing, and a hijacking of the original equity-feminism as detailed by Christine Hobbs Sommers' book, "Who Stole Feminism." At one point male-only curfews were suggested, along with the dictum that men should always cross the street when they saw a woman approaching so that she could avoid being frightened by the possibility of being raped. It did get out of control.

Hillary Clinton is betting her ascendency to the White House on what her supporters call "The Vagina Vote"; meaning that all American women will vote for Hillary purely because she is a woman. To bolster that strategy, we are seeing a replay of feminist extremism, and in this case, the idea that a man with his legs apart, although fully clothed and not indicating a sexual interest in a woman, is now offensive and politically incorrect!

The use of a Taser in the fatal shooting of a black man by a cop in South Carolina earlier this year has reignited a debate about how safe they are and whether police are relying too heavily on them. Many people, especially residents of North Charleston, S.C., where the shooting occurred, have expressed concern that Tasers pose a health risk to some who are involved in run-ins with police. Officer Michael T. Slager of the North Charleston Police Department fatally shot Walter L. Scott on April 4 in North Charleston. The incident was recorded on tape by a bystander, and the officer’s use of a Taser was documented as well.

THE WAR ON CASH: YOUR DEPOSIT AT THE BANK CAN BE CONVERTED TO EQUITY IF A CRISIS HITS

The financial system is predominantly comprised of digital money. Actual physical Dollars bills and coins only amount to $1.36 trillion. This is only a little over 10% of the $10 trillion sitting in bank accounts. And it’s a tiny fraction of the $20 trillion in stocks, $38 trillion in bonds and $58 trillion in credit instruments floating around the system.

Suffice to say, if a significant percentage of people ever actually moved their money into physical cash, it could very quickly become a systemic problem.

The sale and use of glyphosate-based herbicides (the most commonly used herbicides in the world) has just been banned for non-commercial use in the country, effective later this year. This means that people will no longer be able to spray RoundUp on their lawns and gardens and will instead have to find another (hopefully more natural) means of pest control.

ABC News Reporter Arrested After Police Said His Camera Put “Their Lives in Danger”

WBRZ-TV reporter Brett Buffington was arrested on Thursday morning for attempting to take photos of a crime scene, and then later “mouthing off” to officer on the scene.

Buffington was charged with interfering with an officer and intimidating a public official. The police claim that Buffington “interfered” with a burglary investigation around 2:30 in the early morning on Thursday.

However, according to the police department’s version of events, Buffington was simply doing his job as a journalist and attempting to investigate a crime just as the police allegedly were.

The police report stated that Buffington disobeyed police officers when they asked him to leave the area, but instead took photos. The officers said that the flash from the camera diverted their attention and put “their lives in danger.”

Congress kowtows to globalists, moves to repeal labeling on meat products to keep Americans in the dark

In America, government by secrecy seems to be the new normal as lawmakers and presidents operate in the shadows to negotiate secret trade deals while passing legislation aimed at reducing transparency.

As noted by the Washington Post and the Liberty Blitzkrieg web site, the House Agriculture Committee voted overwhelmingly (38-6) in recent days to repeal a "country of origin" law for beef, pork and poultry, just two days after the globalist World Trade Organization ruled against portions of the U.S. requirement.

Tony Blair 'in £330,000 demand for hunger talk'

Mr Blair was asked to speak at the Eat food forum in Stockholm, Sweden, which starts tomorrow.

The event, which last year featured a talk by former American president Bill Clinton, claims to be a forum where 'science politics and business can share insight and ideas to achieve our common goal of sustainably feeding a healthy world population.

Kruger Cowne talent agency, which represents Mr Blair, asked for a £250,000 fee plus £80,000 expenses for a twenty minute speech, according to the Sunday Times.

Mr Clinton got a total of £327,000 for his half-hour talk last year.

White House slams Senate over lapse in spy provisions

The White House has labeled the US Senate "irresponsible" over its failure to prevent contested counterterrorism provisions, including the NSA's bulk collection of Americans' phone records, from expiring.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Given that the NSA spying is in direct violation of the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution, which Obama swore an oath to, Obama has now committed an impeachable offense!

U.S. bombers hold fire on Islamic State targets amid ground intel blackout

Nearly 75 percent of U.S. bombing runs targeting the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria returned to base without firing any weapons in the first four months of 2015, holding their fire mainly because of a lack of ground intelligence and raising questions about President Obama’s key tactic in pushing back an enemy that continues to expand its territory in the war zone.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Or comfirming that ISIS is a US creation to oust Assad and split Iraq into pieces!

Washington is Targeting Russian Pipelines Yet Again

Russia’s Gazprom has clearly demonstrated excessive optimism by starting the construction of the so-called Turkish Stream right off the bat. Apparently it is has not calculated the geopolitical situation around Russia properly, specifically where the US is applying unprecedented pressure on Turkey, Azerbaijan and Balkan to disrupt this project. Gazprom’s top management has made it clear that the company is not going to put the construction of the Turkish Stream on the back burner since it should have the ability to deliver gas to Europe while bypassing Ukraine. This project should be finalized by 2019, and Gazprom has already notified its European partners of its intentions of abandoning the pipeline in Ukraine by this date. Moscow has also renewed a contract on the supply of more than 150 thousand tons of pipes with Europipe, while lifting restrictions on the contract with the Italian Saipem.

Huge Explosion In Latakia Reveals US HRW Hypocrisy

By Brandon Turbeville

On May 25, when a large explosion took place in Latakia, Syria, a few mainstream media outlets covered the incident from the angle of it being yet one more sign that the Syrian regime was losing its grip on power. This explosion was followed by a huge yellow plume of smoke that caused many informed observers to wonder whether or not the explosion was that of a chemical weapon.

On the chemical weapons question, however, the mainstream Western press was silent...

NSA loses power to collect Americans’ phone records after no deal in Senate

The National Security Agency lost its authority at midnight to collect Americans’ phone records in bulk, after Republican Sen. Rand Paul stood in the way of extending the fiercely contested program in an extraordinary Sunday session in the Senate.

But that program and several other post-Sept. 11, 2001 counter-terror measures look likely to be revived within days. With no other options, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell reluctantly embraced a House of Representatives-passed bill that would extend the provisions, while also remaking the bulk phone collections program.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The headline is misleading. NSA still has the power to spy on your phone calls and will as long as those data centers remain standing. NSA was in violation of the law when it started building this system back in the 1980s. They will not hesitate to violate the law again. The new USA FREEDOM Act that may be passed now keeps the spying going, but shuffles around just who gets the data to make it look like there has been an improvement, but the real goal is to lull Americans into the false belief that somehow privacy protections have been restored, so that we will not create our own systems of encryption to protect our business secrets from government crooks. It is up to us all to take responsibility for our right to privacy, guaranteed to us under the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution.

The Lancet: What is medicine’s 5 sigma?

“A lot of what is published is incorrect.” I’m not allowed to say who made this remark because we were asked to observe Chatham House rules. We were also asked not to take photographs of slides. Those who worked
for government agencies pleaded that their comments especially remain unquoted, since the forthcoming UK election meant they were living in “purdah”—a chilling state where severe restrictions on freedom of speech are placed on anyone on the government’s payroll. Why the paranoid concern for secrecy and non-attribution? Because this symposium—on the reproducibility and reliability of biomedical research, held at the Wellcome Trust in London last week—touched on one of the most sensitive issues in science today: the idea that something has gone fundamentally wrong with one of our greatest human creations

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Basically, this conference, which was not to be talked about, acknowledges that half of the reports issued by professional scientists and government agencies are flat-out wrong, produced as propaganda bolstered by white laboratory coats to promote an agenda, such as human-caused global warming, sell a product such as vaccines for healthy people, protect a bad product like GMOs, or perpetuate religious myths under the guise of science like the Big Bang!

Half!

Just think about that for a moment!

The Independent media, lacking in resources and targeted by professional disinformation operatives, may not be perfect, but we are certainly more accurate and truthful than half!

Former US senator: Washington bribing Israel over Iran Deal

US and Israeli officials are discussing a new 10-year deal that could be worth up to $45 billion as the current $3 billion annual military aid package will expire in 2017, Press TV reported.

“The fact that there is a discussion now in the media over the potential of the United States increasing the amount of military aid to Israel is really nothing more than a bribe essentially to the Israeli community, but not particularly them because Netanyahu is still making mischief with his comments about the nuclear deal with Iran, what it is, it’s a buy-off of the American Jewish community; it’s appalling,” Gravel told Press TV on Saturday.

But while we can understand Western interests, we fail to grasp why and how the jihadists can serve Uncle Sam in the name of the Coran.

Rule By The Corporations — Paul Craig Roberts

The Transatlantic and Transpacific Trade and Investment Partnerships have nothing to do with free trade. “Free trade” is used as a disguise to hide the power these agreements give to corporations to use law suits to overturn sovereign laws of nations that regulate pollution, food safety, GMOs, and minimum wages.

The first thing to understand is that these so-called “partnerships” are not laws written by Congress. The US Constitution gives Congress the authority to legislate, but these laws are being written without the participation of Congress. The laws are being written by corporations solely in the interest of their power and profit. The office of US Trade Representative was created in order to permit corporations to write law that serves only their interests. This fraud on the Constitution and the people is covered up by calling trade laws “treaties.”

How The US Indirectly Armed ISIS With Over 2,300 Humvees

Curious how and why the US is "boosting" US GDP by selling over $4 billion worth of weapons to Israel, Iran and Saudi Arabia, ostensibly to provide these countries with protection against ISIS (the same ISIS, incidentally, which a leaked document last week admitted had been effectively created by the US)? Simple: by first "losing" a billion dollars worth of Humvees so that, drumroll, ISIS can be the best-armed "terrorist" force in the middle east, a force whose mere presence will demand billions in subsequent military orders from the US military-industrial complex by all those who are threatened by ISIS.

Japan's pension system has been hacked and more than a million cases of personal data leaked, authorities said on Monday, in an embarrassment that revived memories of a scandal that helped topple Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in his first term in office.

Japan Pension Service staff computers were improperly accessed by an external email virus, leading to the leak of some 1.25 million cases of personal data, the system's president, Toichiro Mizushima, told a hastily called news conference.

He apologized for the leak, which he said involved combinations of names, identification numbers, birth dates and addresses.

Is The Stock Market Overvalued?… ”Why can’t we ever learn from history? We just keep on making the same mistakes over and over again.”

Are stocks overvalued? By just about any measure that you could possibly name, stocks are at historically high prices right now. From a technical standpoint, the stock market is more overvalued today than it was just prior to the last financial crisis. The only two moments in U.S. history that even compare to our current state of affairs are the run up to the stock market crash of 1929 and the peak of the hysteria just before the dotcom bubble burst. It is so obvious that stocks are in a bubble that even Janet Yellen has talked about it, but of course she will never admit that the Federal Reserve has played a key role in creating this bubble.

Obscured by Jon Stewart’s well-publicized mockery of Texans’ reaction to Jade Helm 15—the US Army’s two-month-long exercise across nine states scheduled to begin in July—is the fact that the criticisms may not all be deranged droolings.

Golden Silences in the Propaganda System

Propaganda shapes the flow of information in many different ways, including, obviously, the choice of the news fit to print, its placement, and the selection of authorities to make those facts credible. But equally important, and implicit in news choices, especially where there are political interests at stake and possible varying interpretations of the news, is omitting facts and ignoring sources that call the chosen (often official) perspective into question. Such Golden Silences and bypassing of inconvenient sources is incompatible with honest journalism but is standard operating procedure in mainstream journalism, with variations mainly in severity and depth of burial of the awkward facts. These latter are often not completely hidden but put so deep in an article and in such cautious or qualifying language as to be effectively buried or suppressed.
