THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

"The study of money, above all other fields in economics, is one in which complexity is used to disguise truth or to evade truth, not to reveal it. The process by which banks create money is so simple the mind is repelled. With something so important, a deeper mystery seems only decent." -- John Kenneth Galbraith (1908- ), former professor of economics at Harvard, writing in "Money: Whence it came, where it went"(1975).

Debunking the "The Saudis did 9-11" nonsense!

And finally, here is some common sense that totally undermines the attempt to frame Saudi Arabia for 9-11. If Saudi Arabia really wanted to hurt the United States, they don't need to fly airplanes into skyscrapers to do it. All they have to do is ask for their money back, all at once. The resulting damage to the US financial system would make 9-11 look like a minor inconvenience in comparison.

And it would be perfectly legal for Saudi Arabia to ask for their money back.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am reposting this article because three pro-Israel congressmen are claiming that there is a secret 9-11 document that they are demanding to be made public, one that places the blame for 9-11 on Saudi Arabia. Walter Jones was on the Ron Paul channel recently pushing this latest attempt to protect Israel from the consequences of their actions.

Jones Lynch, and Massie are called a press conference to announce bill HR428, which will "authorize" the declassification of this hoax.

Now, we all know how DC works. If these congresscritters wanted the document to be made public they would leak it. They could send it ti WikiLeaks. It happens all the time. This caterwauling is just an attention-getting device to try to trick Americans into supporting this document before they have actually seen it, so that once it is released, they will support it because it is what "they" wanted!

This is actually a repeat of the same stunt they tried 2 years ago in which they tease the public with the story of a secret 9-11 document and try to get everyone to demand to see it. The document frames Saudi Arabia for 9-11, to protect Israel.

But as this article lays out, Saudi Arabia didn't have a motive to do 9-11, and if they wanted to hurt the US, they would not need airplanes into skyscrapers to do it.

ISIS (Suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuure) Releases New Video, Warns "Fighting Has Just Begun"

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let us say you are ISIS and you are making great gains inside Syria and Iraq. The very LAST thing you want is direct military intervention. Hence the very LAST thing you will do is any actions or videos that help the US Government sell the American people on yet another war.

This story, like the beheadings videos, is just more war propaganda brought to you by the same government and corporate media that brought you torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin, Spanish mines in Havana harbor, stolen Kuwaiti incubators, Saddam's nuclear weapons, etc. etc. etc. etc.

How many times do you have to be lied to by the government before you face up to the fact that you are being lied to by the government?

As a side note, this is a very professional production with high dynamic range high-speed cameras for those dramatic slow-motion shots! Not the kind of equipment one finds outside major media centers like New York or Hollywood!

Profiteering From ISIS War - Contractors Ready to Cash In

Obama pledged that the war against ISIS won’t be fought with U.S. ground troops. He didn’t say anything about contractors, who see this as “the next big meal ticket.”

America’s rapidly-expanding war against ISIS won’t involve large numbers of U.S. troops on the ground, President Obama is promising. And it’s clear that airstrikes alone won’t beat back the extremist group. Which means that if the President wants to have any hope of meeting his far-reaching goal of destroying ISIS, he’s going to have to rely on private military contractors.

At least, that’s what the contractors are hoping.

Ron Paul Asks: Will The Swiss Vote to Get Their Gold Back?

On November 30th, voters in Switzerland will head to the polls to vote in a referendum on gold.

On the ballot is a measure to prohibit the Swiss National Bank (SNB) from further gold sales, to repatriate Swiss-owned gold to Switzerland, and to mandate that gold make up at least 20 percent of the SNB’s assets.

Arising from popular sentiment similar to movements in the United States, Germany, and the Netherlands, this referendum is an attempt to bring more oversight and accountability to the SNB, Switzerland’s central bank.

Will the Swiss throw a wrench into Western Central Banks’ plans by voting to get their gold back??

Pakistani passenger power forces two politicians off plane

Passengers on a Pakistan International Airline (PIA) flight from Karachi barred two politicians from boarding the aircraft after the two VIPs delayed the flight by over two hours.

A video clip was posted online showing Senator Rehman Malik and Dr Ramesh Kumar Wakwani, a Member of National Assembly, being ejected from the Islamabad-bound flight by angry passengers.

The disgruntled passengers can be heard grumbling, "So-called VIPs" and "My foot VIPs" as they wait for the two delayed politicians aboard the aircraft. They can be heard talking to PIA crew who seem to be attempting to calm the travellers down.

"No, no, no, sir," one of the passengers responds. "We've taken it for too long. For 68 years. Are we going to take it for another 68 years?"

Is It Wise For Obama To Send Thousands Of U.S. Troops Into The Ebola Death Zone?

When there is a major problem somewhere in the world, Barack Obama loves to show that he is “doing something” by sending a contingent of U.S. troops to the affected area. But is it really wise for Obama to send thousands of young American men and women into the Ebola death zone? What are our troops going to do – shoot the virus? Of course not.

Supreme Court ruling hasn’t stopped police from warrantless requests for data

Law enforcement agencies are still making warrantless requests for telecom customers’ personal data months after a Supreme Court ruling appeared to shut down the practice.

Police in Canada used to ask telecom companies to voluntarily hand over data on Canadian customers more than a million times per year. In June, the Supreme Court struck down this warrantless method as an invasion of privacy.

But while the number of warrantless requests has dropped since the decision, they have not stopped, an investigation by the Star and the Halifax Chronicle Herald has found. Key players, including the country’s largest police force and a major telecom, aren’t saying whether they still send or accept them.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is just plain silly.

Let us say you are ISIS and you are making great gains in taking control of Iraq back from its US puppet rulers, or making great gains in controlling Syria. The very LAST thing you would want is direct US military intervention. So, would you make a video that HELPS the US Government sell yet another war to the American people? Of course not. That is why this video, like the beheadings, is a total fake.

Chemicals in make-up and perfumes fuelling rise in children with asthma

Chemicals in make-up, perfume and plastic containers could be behind a surge in the incidence of asthma in children, researchers warned yesterday.

Scientists have found that babies exposed to high levels of phthalates while in the womb are up to 78 per cent more at risk of the condition.

They think the chemicals may be causing foetuses’ airways to become more sensitive, making them susceptible to asthma in their childhood years.

Dems divided on Obama’s Syria plan

The deep divisions among Democrats over President Barack Obama’s plan to attack Islamic State militants foreshadow fights ahead within the party over how aggressively to assert itself on foreign policy.

A growing number of rank-and-file Democrats are worried that the president’s plans would commit the United States to an open-ended conflict against the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, costing the country blood and treasure in another unpredictable Mideast war. Yet party leaders and senior Democrats believe now is the time to stand behind the commander in chief, given the lack of viable options and the deepening crisis threatening to plunge the region into further turmoil.

Mr. Gudenus, you are considered as an Russia expert and a friend of Moscow. Where does this new - perhaps old - fear of Russia come from?

The Second World War ended in 1945 and the Cold War in 1989...

Gudenus: But the anti-Russian sentiments are still very easy to reactivate, as we can see. What is interesting is that all liberal and left media currently agitating loudly against Moscow are precisely the ones who like to accuse others to be prejudiced or xenophobic.

August 11, 6 a.m.—San Francisco International Airport

"A twenty-something woman is running the back of her hand across the base of my breasts. I stand there, legs spread as she moves on to the inside of my thighs. She runs her hand underneath the waistline of my pants and across my buttocks.

I’m angry and embarrassed. The woman touching me seems embarrassed, too.

When she’s done her coworker, a young woman with a large neck tattoo poorly covered with makeup, rummages through my suitcase, purse, and laptop bag. Piece by piece, she pulls out my still-damp bathing suit, my underwear, and a few crumpled up dresses. She tosses my iPad aside, jiggles a bottle of prescription medicine, and stares at my EpiPen, bewildered. She’s enjoying this—today she is in charge of me."

City of London vs. Scottish Independence

Scotland has a long and noteworthy history of banking. Money, savings and investing is entrenched in the culture and society. Edinburgh is the fourth largest financial centre in Europe (after London, Frankfurt and Paris). Much of this reputation has arisen from its history of innovation over the last three hundred years. The Bank of Scotland, established in 1695, one year after the Bank of England by an Act of the Scottish Parliament, illustrates the prevailing attitude to the creation of money in that era. A list of banking innovations is a useful background of Scottish banking activities.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Scotland will simply create their own currency and their own banks. Certainly Scotland will be far better off without a private central bank issuing all of their public currency as a loan at interest!

The NSA and GCHQ Campaign Against German Satellite Companies

“Fuck!” That is the word that comes to the mind of Christian Steffen, the CEO of German satellite communications company Stellar PCS. He is looking at classified documents laying out the scope of something called Treasure Map, a top secret NSA program. Steffen’s firm provides internet access to remote portions of the globe via satellite, and what he is looking at tells him that the company, and some of its customers, have been penetrated by the U.S. National Security Agency and British spy agency GCHQ.

Stellar’s visibly shaken chief engineer, reviewing the same documents, shares his boss’ reaction. “The intelligence services could use this data to shut down the internet in entire African countries that are provided access via our satellite connections,” he says.

Ebola & West Africa's Offshore Oil By JC Collins

The movement of troops, especially American troops, is the dead giveaway to any broader game plan which is intended to be hidden within the structure of propaganda and media campaigns. So it is with muted surprise that we hear the news of the United States sending 3,000 troops to help fight the Ebola epidemic in West Africa.

As reported in the New York Times yesterday:

Under pressure to do more to confront the Ebola outbreak sweeping across West Africa, President Obama on Tuesday is to announce an expansion of military and medical resources to combat the spread of the deadly virus, administration officials said.

What isn’t reported in the article is that 1/3rd of all new oil discoveries have taken place in West Africa.

Most importantly of all, we want to stop those awful, Putin-loving, Syria-loving, Iran-loving Chinese from taking advantage of you.

"But I think doing nothing would invite something very similar that happened to my city, New York City, on that fateful day of Sept. 11, 2001," he added. The top Democrat on the House Foreign Affairs Committee also warned that the threat of an attack extended beyond his country.

"If we do nothing, ISIS (or ISIL) will plot and plan and we'll have many more 9/11s in the United States, in Europe, in the Middle East," Engel said.

Obama: If Assad Defends Against US Attack, US Will Attack

Only hours after delivering his ridiculous address to the American people regarding his strategy to combat an organization that is entirely the product of the United States and NATO and one that is still under complete control of these powers, Obama conducted a meeting with “foreign policy experts,” former government officials, and journalists.

The meeting, of course, is nothing more than round two in the volley of propaganda coming from the White House in its attempt to drum up more support from the American people for direct military intervention in Syria and an open use of U.S. military forces against the secular government of Bashar al-Assad. All of those within an ear’s reach of the reports regarding Obama’s meeting should be firmly aware that it is nothing more than an attempt to milk the original speech for more propaganda against Assad’s Syria and provide a sense of inevitability about the coming conflict there.

Eric Matthew Frein "has made statements about wanting to kill law enforcement officers and also to commit mass acts of murder," Pennsylvania State Police Commissioner Frank Noonan told reporters Tuesday.

"He has very strong feelings about law enforcement and seems to be very angry with a lot of things that go on in our society."

Cuba is sending 165 health workers to help tackle the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, officials say.

Doctors, nurses and infection control specialists will travel to Sierra Leone in October and stay for six months.

German man on trial for being Islamic State jihadist played for Jewish football club

A 20-year-old German man went on trial in Frankfurt on Monday on charges he was a member of the extremist Islamic State group, the first such case to come to court in Germany.

Prosecutors allege that Kreshnik Berisha, who once played for a Jewish football club, travelled last year to Syria and fought with the group before returning to Germany five months later.

Berisha, who faces up to 10 years in prison for membership of a foreign terrorist organization, was arrested at Frankfurt airport in December and has been held in detention since.

Heightened security measures have been put in place for the trial, which is expected to last until at least November. It opens just days after Germany formally banned Islamic State symbols and any propaganda activity for the group.

Scottish police deny presstitutes' claims that independence campaign is leading to increased crimes & disorder

In response to increased press reports and comment implying increased crime and disorder as a consequence of the Independence Referendum Brian Docherty, Chairman of the Scottish Police Federation said:

“The Police Service of Scotland and the men and women who work in it should not be used as a political football at any time and especially so in these last few hours of the referendum campaign.

As I have previously stated the referendum debate has been robust but overwhelmingly good natured.

It was inevitable that the closer we came to the 18th of September passions would increase but that does not justify the exaggerated rhetoric that is being deployed with increased frequency. Any neutral observer could be led to believe Scotland is on the verge of societal disintegration yet nothing could be further from the truth.

US Pursues 134 Wars Around the World

he US is now involved in 134 wars or none, depending on your definition of war ...The White House spent much of last week trying to figure out if the word "war" was the right one to describe its military actions against the Islamic State. US Secretary of State John Kerry was at first reluctant: "We're engaged in a major counterterrorism operation," he told CBS News on Sept. 11. "I think war is the wrong terminology and analogy but the fact is that we are engaged in a very significant global effort to curb terrorist activity... I don't think people need to get into war fever on this. I think they have to view it as a heightened level of counter terrorist activity."

American man suing to seize Gaza flotilla ships

The US Court of Appeals heard a case on Monday filed by an American terror victim who is seeking to seize 14 vessels that participated in the 2010 Gaza flotilla. The suit, which was originally filed in June 2011 by Dr. Alan Bauer, seeks to confiscate the 14 ships on the grounds that they were used in a hostile fashion against a nation friendly to the United States.

Israeli naval commandos boarded the boats that departed from Turkey in May 2010 after they disobeyed instructions from the Israel Defense Forces. The commandos immediately faced violent resistance upon boarding the main vessel, the Mavi Marmara. Ten Israeli commandos were injured and 10 Turkish activists were killed in the ensuing conflict.

But there has been another, little-discussed change in the training of American police since the 9/11 attacks: At least 300 high-ranking sheriffs and police from agencies large and small – from New York and Maine to Orange County and Oakland, California – have traveled to Israel for privately funded seminars in what is described as counterterrorism techniques.

Argentina Cancer Deaths Well Above the National Average in Heavily GMO-Planted Areas

Argentinean farmers have increased their levels of herbicide spraying of crops, and the results don’t look good. A huge increase in cancer incidence is being reported in Argentina linked directly to areas of heavy GMO crop engineering and high biotech herbicide use.

The Ministry of Health in Córdoba, Argentina, reveals in a report that deaths from cancerous tumors are double the national average in areas where genetically engineered crops are grown and agro-chemicals are used.

As reported, the report has documented five successive years of information on cancer increases in the provinces that are experiencing increased elevated rates. The substantial evidence points to GMO-driven agricultural practices as the main culprit, turning our farm lands into a public health hell.

Leaked email reveals ADL advice to universities urging anti-Palestine crackdown

As college students go back to class across the US, the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) is urging a renewed crackdown on Palestine solidarity activism on campus – and at least one California university leader appears to be receptive.

University of California, Davis Chancellor Linda Katehi’s office shared an email (full text below) from Seth Brysk, Central Pacific Regional Director for the ADL, with all of her university’s senior leadership on Monday.

The email warns about an upcoming day of action for Palestinian rights and calls for extra security and “discipline.”

It singles out the advocacy group American Muslims for Palestine (AMP) for special attention and makes thinly-veiled allegations of anti-Jewish activity.

The distribution list Katehi’s office sent Brysk’s memo to includes more than two dozen top administrators who make up the Council of Deans and Vice Chancellors, and Nick Crossley, the “emergency manager” of the UC Davis police department.

VANUNU'S PHOTOS OF DIMONA - 1985

Acting on his conscience, he carefully took about 60 photos of the top-secret labs and unique production processes involved. When some of these photos were originally published in the London Sunday Times' exposé, they confirmed his eyewitness testimony about the extent of Israel's nuclear weapons program and revealed Israel to be one of the world's top nuclear powers. To this day, the Israeli government refuses international inspection of Dimona and continues to deny the existence of its nuclear arsenal.

While their publication resulted in Vanunu being locked away for an 18-year prison sentence, his photographs of Israel's nuclear weapons factory - a bold statement against nuclear secrecy and for the abolition of nuclear weapons - are here for all to see.

Ebola, AIDS Manufactured by Western Pharmaceuticals, US DoD?

Reports narrate stories of the US Department of Defense (DoD) funding Ebola trials on humans, trials which started just weeks before the Ebola outbreak in Guinea and Sierra Leone. The reports continue and state that the DoD gave a contract worth $140 million dollars to Tekmira, a Canadian pharmaceutical company, to conduct Ebola research. This research work involved injecting and infusing healthy humans with the deadly Ebola virus. Hence, the DoD is listed as a collaborator in a “First in Human” Ebola clinical trial (NCT02041715, which started in January 2014 shortly before an Ebola epidemic was declared in West Africa in March. Disturbingly, many reports also conclude that the US government has a viral fever bioterrorism research laboratory in Kenema, a town at the epicentre of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.

The truth about Israel's secret nuclear arsenal

Israel has been stealing nuclear secrets and covertly making bombs since the 1950s. And western governments, including Britain and the US, turn a blind eye. But how can we expect Iran to curb its nuclear ambitions if the Israelis won't come clean?

Note: Lying is normal for Israel.

Israel’s Worst-Kept Secret

Former CIA Director Robert Gates said so during his 2006 Senate confirmation hearings for secretary of defense, when he noted—while serving as a university president—that Iran is surrounded by “powers with nuclear weapons,” including “the Israelis to the west.” Former President Jimmy Carter said so in 2008 and again this year, in interviews and speeches in which he pegged the number of Israel’s nuclear warheads at 150 to around 300.
But due to a quirk of federal secrecy rules, such remarks generally cannot be made even now by those who work for the U.S. government and hold active security clearances. In fact, U.S. officials, even those on Capitol Hill, are routinely admonished not to mention the existence of an Israeli nuclear arsenal and occasionally punished when they do so.

Sears Could Be Gone If Slump Lasts Through Christmas

Heavy losses in the second fiscal quarter, things are not looking good for Sears Holdings. These losses are up nearly $400 million since the same time last year, and with only $1 billion in cash and holdings Sears is having a hard time staying afloat. They are quickly burning through $715 in net cash from operations for the first six months this year and with another $116 million of capital assets left, they are quickly losing ground—at the rate of approximately $150 million per month.

This means that Sears could easily run out of money in the next eight months; Fitch Ratings has downgraded their credit from double C to triple C, putting it at the lowest possible end of the credit spectrum for retailers.

Richard III's brutal last moments revealed: Forensics show how doomed king was hacked to death by 11 blows after losing his helmet (and his horse) in the Battle of Bosworth

Richard III was surrounded by soldiers and hacked to death after losing his helmet in battle, analysis of his remains suggests.
Medical scanners were used to establish that the king suffered 11 injuries from enemy soldiers at Bosworth Field in 1485.
The 32-year-old died after two blows to the back of his head – one from a sword and the other from a halberd, a medieval axe-like weapon.

As nine of the injuries were to his skull, researchers at Leicester University suggest he had lost his heavy helmet. The two other injuries may have been inflicted after his armour was torn from his body. Wounds to his buttocks probably came as his bloodied corpse was paraded around the battle ground, they suggest. The medical evidence establishes the most detailed account of Richard III’s death ever attempted and is published today in the Lancet medical journal.

West Bank Jewish settler population soars: settlers

Jerusalem (AFP) - Israeli settlers in the occupied West Bank numbered 382,031 at the end of June, up from 374,469 six months earlier, the leading settler organisation said on Tuesday.

Israel's settlement building, which is illegal under international law, is seen as an obstacle to any lasting peace with the Palestinians, who want their future state to be on land much of which Israel has annexed or built settlements on.

Last month, Israel announced plans to expropriate 400 hectares (988 acres) of Palestinian land in the Bethlehem area, its biggest land grab in the occupied territory in three decades.

The move brought strong international condemnation and a warning from Finance Minister Yair Lapid that Israel's settlement policy was eroding its international support.

Tesla wins right to sell directly to consumers in Massachusetts

Massachusetts’ highest court has dismissed a lawsuit filed by the Massachusetts State Automobile Dealers’ Association against Tesla Motors. The ruling paves the way for direct-to-consumer Tesla sales in the Bay State.

The Supreme Judicial Court decision, which was handed down on Monday and upheld a lower court’s ruling, found that existing car dealers lacked standing. The plaintiffs had claimed that Tesla was in violation of state law that prevents a car manufacturer from also owning a car dealership—so because Tesla could sell directly, it had an unfair advantage. But that law was intended to protect dealerships from abuse by their own brand manufacturers and distributors, not unrelated manufacturers.

Property Rights and Property Taxes—and Countries That Don’t Have Them

Do you really own something that you are forced to perpetually make payments on and which can be seized from you if you don’t pay?

With strong economic growth there is nearly full employment, there are higher wages, the workers have greater equality with their employers, so labor regulations are not needed. Everyone has more money in their pockets, and more money in their bank accounts – real value, mind you, not simply the empty promise offered by a central bank’s inflationary tactics.

Bill Clinton: Netanyahu 'not the guy' to strike lasting Middle East peace deal

Speaking to a member of the public at a Democratic fundraiser in Iowa this weekend, the former president agreed with the suggestion that Israeli prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu was “not the guy” to strike a lasting peace deal in the region.

Clinton also agreed when it was suggested to him that “If we don’t force him [Netanyahu] to make peace, we won’t have peace”.

The former president replied: “First of all, I agree with that. But in 2000, Ehud Barack, I got him to agree to something I’m not sure I would have gotten Rabin to agree to, and Rabin was murdered for giving land to the Palestinians.”

Though brief and apparently unscripted, the exchange, which was recorded by C-Span and picked up by Israeli newspaper Haaretz, is in stark contrast to recent comments by Hillary Clinton, who has been more supportive of Netanyahu’s handling of the recent conflict in Gaza.

A Bad Dream: Tax Code Grounds Airport's Plans to Install Sleeping Pods for Passengers

The pods, which were planned for the airport's C concourse, would have contained two to three bunks each for weary and laid-over travelers to get some cheap rest before boarding their next flight. Their installation would have made Anchorage's airport one of the first in the nation to utilize the so-called "micro hotels" and would have increased the airport's already growing nonflight revenue.

Under the legislation, rebel-held parts of Ukraine's eastern Donetsk and Luhansk regions will be granted a "special status," giving them broader autonomy for a temporary three-year period. Additionally, the new laws envision aid to restore the regions’ damaged infrastructure and the provision of social and economic assistance to hard-hit areas.

They know all sorts of complicated details and enter into far-reaching discussion about whether the coach made the right decision yesterday and so on. These are ordinary people, not professionals, who are applying their intelligence and analytic skills in these areas and accumulating quite a lot of knowledge and, for all I know, understanding.

TSA Not Sure If It Groped Man Before Flight, Demands To Grope Him After Flight Is Over

Via Amy Alkon, we learn of yet another bizarre moment in the world of security theater known as the TSA. It involves a young man from Orono, Minnesota, named Kahler Nygard, who for reasons no one will ever explain, happens to be on a "selectee" list for flying. It's not quite the no fly list, but it's the list where you get four S's on your boarding pass ("SSSS"), and the TSA is then supposed to give you and your bags that extra level of privacy-destroying attention, including a full gropedown. Nygard claims he got the full groping in Minnesota, but the TSA (or potentially a Spirit airlines employee) apparently believed it was overlooked -- though, they didn't "realize" this until the flight was halfway to Denver.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So the flight is over, no act of terror was committed, but TSA still wants to give him a grope.

The Strange, Twisted Logic of the ISIS War

Officials in Washington are inadvertently providing some insight into the strange logic of their nebulous war against the Islamic State, also known as ISIS and ISIL, in contradictory and puerile statements about whether the military action should be called a war, or perhaps something else.

Backtracking on an earlier statement that the action against ISIS is simply a “counterterrorism operation,” Secretary of State John Kerry clarified in an interview on Sunday that it is, in fact, a “war.”

Will Scots Provide Inspiration for Americans To Take Back Their Occupied Government?

As it relates to the American people, a move by the Scots will be an inspiring example of how people can take back their destiny, their community, and their government.

It’s no secret that the majority of Americans are completely frustrated with what was once their federal government. The helpless feeling that the majority of Americans feel is fueled by the fact that people know their vote does not count and nothing they say has any influence in the oligarchy that is their corporatocracy.

But with Scots taking back their future, Americans will get inspired. Maybe Texas will break away? Or maybe California will become their own country? Or maybe, Americans will throw out the U.S. Congress, reform their government so that it responds to America First and NOT the interests of globalists and other foreign interests that say nothing to them about their lives?

Unemployment Claims Numbers and the US Stock Market: The Harbinger of Doom That is August

Unemployment numbers can either be actual or seasonally adjusted. The week that ended August 16th, for example, saw initial unemployment claims of 298,000 which represented a seasonally adjusted rate. Economists on Wall Street put the actual number to be around 308,000 which is not necessarily uncommon given the typical differences between the numbers that are expected versus the numbers that are reported. Nevertheless, the stock market wasn’t terribly affected by those claims one way or another. There were some minor brief fluctuations but after 20 or 30 minutes, the market returned to its pre-announcement activity.

Dreaming War, Threatening Humanity

America is unique. No nation ever waged perpetual war throughout its entire history. It's done so at home and abroad.

It exterminated its native people. It treats its most disadvantaged with contempt. It wages war on humanity worldwide.

Permanent war is official US policy. Obama exceeds the worst of George Bush. He tramples on fundamental freedoms.

No court-martial for nurse who refused to give forced-feeding

A Navy commander has chosen not to court-martial a nurse who refused to conduct forced feedings of hunger strikers this summer and has instead asked a board to determine whether the nurse should be allowed to stay in the U.S. Navy.The nurse, a Navy lieutenant whose name has never been made public, reportedly turned conscientious objector before the Fourth of July after handling months of nasogastric feedings of prisoners shackled to a restraint chair.He has insufficient years in service as an officer to qualify for retirement. At issue is whether what he did should end his Navy career.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Anyone who has ever had this done will tell you that even in the hands of the most skilled, compassionate practitioner, the process is ugly and uncomfortable.

That it should be done to people on a hunger strike because they know the only way to get out of Gitmo is by dying?!? Inhumane in the extreme.

And when some of these men do die, if the autopsies are done and documented correctly, those autopsies will bear compelling witness to the tortures they endured, and all Americans need to see that.

When the US government tortures, or outsources torture, it broadcasts to the world that those values it allegedly holds dear - peace, human dignity, compassion, and democracy, are only observed in the breach.

When the US government tortures, or outsources torture, it gives carte blanche for other governments around the world to torture our civilians and military.

For those of you with friends or family serving our military right now, please chew on that one for awhile.

William Rivers Pitt | The Pleasant Fiction of "No Boots on the Ground"

In June of this year, ISIS staged a surprise attack on Mosul, routed Iraqi security forces and police, and took control of the city. Hundreds of thousands fled the violence, including members of the defeated security forces, who shed their uniforms and ran with the civilians. ISIS is now dug into Mosul, surrounded by the hundreds of thousands of civilians who did not flee. Many of those who remained, while not necessarily supportive of their new masters, are so distrustful of the government in Baghdad that they are willing to hunker down and ride it out.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is a question of when, not a question of if, ground troops are going to be needed here.

Obama may well have to deploy them before the November elections, when it is seen that the air strikes are ultimately impotent to deter these rebels.

Frankly, I am still expecting this government to stage some huge false flag event with which to rile Americans into a pitched war fever.

I hope (and pray, as a Christian pacifist) this does not happen.

It is ultimately, painfully clear that it will be our kids who will fight, die, and get maimed for life to assure that the oil is ultimately controlled by Western companies, and sold only in US dollars.

Ukraine Offers ‘Special Status’ for East to End War

The Ukrainian government has offered a package of concessions to eastern rebels aimed at ending the ongoing civil war in the nation, declaring a three year “special status” for the eastern oblasts of Donetsk and Luhansk.

The special status would grant the region increased autonomy, amnesty for the rebels, the right to use Russian as an official language, and the right to form local police forces independent of the national government.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let us hope the rebels accept this offer to get the bloodshed here to stop.

Iraqi Shi’ite Cleric Sadr Warns US Soldiers Could Be Targeted if They Return

Influential Iraqi Shi’ite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr has ordered members of his Mahdi Army militia to withdraw from areas where US forces are conducting their war against ISIS, and urged popular demonstrations against the return of US ground troops to the country.

Sadr was an outspoken opponent of the US occupation, and his Mahdi Army often clashed with the US forces in the nation. He is also the leader of the politically powerful Sadrist Trend in Iraq.

Failing the threat of unrest keeping US troops off Iraqi soil, Sadr warned that they could find themselves once again a target of his allied militias, declaring “if you come back, we will be back too.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I predicted this in a previous post today.

IF the US winds up having troops on the ground to combat IS (and you cannot win what is essentially a ground war from the air), it will have the Mahdi Army with which to contend.

Sadr means what he says, and were I am member of Congress, State Department, Pentagon, or the White House, I would take what this guy said very, very seriously.

Russia to provide military, other assistance to Iraq, Syria in combating terrorism

Russia will provide military and other assistance to Iraq and Syria in the fight against terrorism, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on the sidelines of an international conference on Iraq in Paris on Monday.

“We have spoken of our contribution to supporting the Iraqi government in their fight against terrorists, ensuring security of their state. In a similar way we provide military and other kind of assistance to Syria that is also facing a serious terrorist threat, maybe to a lesser degree. We also provide assistance to our partners in Egypt, Lebanon, Yemen, Jordan. So we have something to contribute to the common efforts,” Lavrov said.

No double standards in the fight against terrorists are acceptable, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on the sidelines of an international conference on Iraq in the French capital on Monday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to the US government; you are about to be check-mated, big-time.

Nigel Farage: Stop opposing Vladmir Putin in Ukraine and join forces to defeat Islamic terrorists

The West must stop opposing Vladimir Putin’s incursion into Ukraine and join forces with the Russian leader in the fight against Islamic extremists, Nigel Farage has said,

The Ukip leader said that Western countries must stop "playing war games in Ukraine and poking the “Russian bear with a stick” because Mr Putin is “on our side” in the war against Islamic extremism.

Mr Farage courted controversy earlier this year when he said that Mr Putin, the former KGB officer, is the statesman he most admires.

In a debate this morning at the European Parliament Mr Farage a sympathetic interpretation of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, he said European states had “directly encouraged” the uprising that “led in turn to Vladimir Putin reacting”.

43 Million People Kicked Out of Their Homes

War, our leaders tell us, is needed to make the world a better place.

Well, maybe not so much for the 43 million people who’ve been driven out of their homes and remain in a precarious state as internally displaced persons (24 million), refugees (12 million), and those struggling to return to their homes.

The U.N.’s figures for the end of 2013 (found here) list Syria as the origin of 9 million such exiles. The cost of escalating the war in Syria is often treated as a financial cost or — in rare cases — as a human cost in injury and death. There is also the human cost of ruining homes, neighborhoods, villages, and cities as places in which to live.

Just ask Colombia which comes in second place following years of war — a place where peace talks are underway and desperately needed with — among other catastrophes — nearly 6 million people deprived of their homes.

Russia Threatens To Send More Troops To Crimea

Russia threatened to send more troops to its newly-annexed territory of Crimea on Tuesday, after NATO began exercises in western Ukraine while Kiev's forces are fighting pro-Russian separatists in the east.

Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said the escalation of tensions in Ukraine and the presence of foreign military near Russia's borders made the deployment of troops a top priority in Crimea, which Russia annexed from Ukraine in March.

"The situation in Ukraine has escalated sharply and the presence of foreign military has increased in the immediate vicinity of our borders," Itar-Tass quoted Shoigu as telling military commanders.

"The deployment of proper and self-sufficient forces to Crimea is one of (our) top priorities."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

(Sigh). I get so tired of people believing that the "big lie" propaganda is still believed today.

Russia did NOT annex Crimea.

After the legal government of Ukraine was overthrown by Western-sponsored putsch, and Poroschenko and his ilk were allegedly "elected", Crimea voted, in what observers call, a free and fair election, to join with the Russian Federation.

And apparently, whoever inked this drivel did not get the message; in order to get the fighting to stop, Poroshenko has signed legislation to allow the Eastern Ukraine areas more autonomy and to join the EU agreement.

KIEV, September 16 (RIA Novosti) – The Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine’s parliament, will start ratifying its association agreement with the European Union at 1 p.m. local time (10:00 GMT), simultaneously with a European Parliament session, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said Tuesday. “Today, at 1 p.m. Kiev time, we will start a procedure to ratify the EU agreement in the Verkhovna Rada simultaneously with the European Parliament,” Poroshenko wrote on his Twitter page.

Senate ISIS Hearing Raises Specter Of Escalating War, Ground Forces

America's top military officials on Tuesday made the case for President Barack Obama's strategy to target the Islamic State, in a Senate hearing that highlighted how quickly the theoretically limited mission could mushroom into something much more involved.

Under the plan Obama is pursuing, the United States would beef up its ongoing efforts to work with Iraqi and Kurdish forces in Iraq and train some 5,000 rebels associated with the Free Syrian Army, who would be able to "degrade and destroy" the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL, with intelligence and air support from the U.S. military.

The president has said repeatedly that the operation would not involve boots on the ground. But Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, revealed early in the hearing, held before the Senate Armed Services Committee, how that could change.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We already have troops on the ground in Iraq, as of 1 July of this year. As reported at vicenews.com:

President Barack Obama ordered up an additional 200 American military troops for deployment in Iraq on Monday, where they will be tasked with helping secure the US Embassy and the Baghdad International Airport. This latest move to increase US military presence in Iraq comes as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) continues capturing territory in the country, and will bring the total number of US troops on the ground nationwide to 750.

It is only a matter of time before there will be US troops on the ground, engaging in combat, in Iraq.

And Obama's problem is that he cannot delay this reality becuse of how much money ISIS is making daily from the oil fields they have conquered (about 3 million per day, and the medium of exchange here is NOT the US dollar.)

Please remember: we got started in that horrendous war in Vietnam through the sending of "advisors". And we all know just how well THAT ended.

And does anyone out there (I'm talking about YOU, White House, Pentagon, and State Department) remember a Shiite Cleric by the name Moktada al-Sadr?!?

He and his organization were extremely powerful before the American forces left, and a question I hope everyone in those conference rooms in Sodom on the Patomic will be asking is, how is this guy going to react to another US military invasion of Iraq?!?

The short answer: I am betting, not well.

Craig Murray: Absolute Lies From the Guardian

The Guardian have just published the most disgusting outright lies imaginable. I just got back from the St James Centre – I was literally just passing through on my way to change for this evening’s meeting. I saw Ed Miliband beetle in and beetle out again.

There was a prepared claque of Labour members with No signs, who had naturally attracted some curious Yes passers-by too. Miliband only does carefully controlled no opposition photocalls, so when there was some hackling and badinage he immediately scuttled away again. There was absolutely no pushing; shoving or threat. I have been in larger crowds at the chemists’ prescription counter. I personally called out “war criminal”, which I had every right to do.

Mysteries of the 21st Century in a Helter-Skelter World

It’s possible I’ve lived most of my life on the wrong planet -- and if that sounds like the first sentence of a sci-fi novel maybe, in its own way, it is. I thought I knew where I was, of course, but looking back from our helter-skelter world of 2014, I wonder.

For most of the last several hundred years, the story in view might be called the Great Concentration and it focused on an imperial struggle for power on planet Earth. That rivalry took place among a kaleidoscopic succession of European “great powers,” one global empire (Great Britain), Russia, a single Asian state (Japan), and the United States.

Balkanization and US’ full spectrum dominance

THE tentacles of the balkanization policy of fragmenting states into small entities has spread worldwide initiated by civil rights societies at first with protests which have the flare of popular uprisings against the incumbent governments for democracy, human rights, minority rights and secularism. More is yet to come in the Middle East using local collaborators and once the West has achieved its objective it will discard them as they did with Saddam Hussein and are now in the process of doing with Nouri Al-Maliki in Iraq. One must remember how Al-Qaeda had been declared enemy “Number One” by the US-NATO yet Al-Qaeda is fighting on the side of the US-NATO in Syria (Al-Nusrat) and Al-Qaeda groups (LIFG) listed among the UN terror list deposed Muammar Gaddafi and destroyed Libya, which ranked as the number one country in Africa under the UN Human Index.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I'm having a palm to forehead moment, at velocity, upon reading this.

What gives this country the moral right to be doing this?!?

The short answer is, there is no moral rightness to these actions, if they come from outside the countries the US and Israel want to see broken up.

New Zealand’s Prime Minister Isn’t Telling The Truth About Mass Surveillance

Let me be clear: any statement that mass surveillance is not performed in New Zealand, or that the internet communications are not comprehensively intercepted and monitored, or that this is not intentionally and actively abetted by the GCSB, is categorically false. If you live in New Zealand, you are being watched. At the NSA I routinely came across the communications of New Zealanders in my work with a mass surveillance tool we share with GCSB, called “XKEYSCORE.” It allows total, granular access to the database of communications collected in the course of mass surveillance. It is not limited to or even used largely for the purposes of cybersecurity, as has been claimed, but is instead used primarily for reading individuals’ private email, text messages, and internet traffic. I know this because it was my full-time job in Hawaii, where I worked every day in an NSA facility with a top secret clearance.
