5 Confirmed False Flag Operations and How to Spot Them in the Future

Remember, the story of the false flag phenomenon is one that is still being written. Our analysis of it must breach the most powerful information control filters the world has ever seen. As technology and social enlightenment make the crimes of the world’s national governments transparent, we will see shocking new chapters added to this history that will shatter mainstream perceptions of reality.

How does this differ in any what from the justification of imposing communism? This is the death of all freedom and it is upon our doorstep.

And now Israel wants to bomb more nuclear facilities in Iran or infect it with a computer virus to cause a melt-down, so that what happened by accident at Three-Mile Island, Chernobyl, and Fukushima, will be done deliberately to the people of Iran, who have not invaded or threatened anyone.

There are indeed monsters living among us.

• Event in South Carolina opens door to advance radical cultural change.

In the aftermath of the alleged mass shooting at a historic black church in Charleston, South Carolina, reportedly carried out by Dylann Storm Roof, a disgruntled and alienated 21-year-old white man, Democrats and the liberal Marxist media are taking full advantage of the incident in their ongoing war on traditional America.

Charleston Event Resurrects Debate About Anti-Psychotic Meds & Mass Murders

• Charleston shooter was arrested with prescription drug in possession earlier this year.

The alleged June 17 murder of nine black church parishioners in Charleston, South Carolina, reportedly by Dylann Storm Roof, has once again highlighted the connection between antipsychotic medication and mass shootings.

Roof was reported to have had a drug called suboxone in his possession in a previous arrest earlier this year. Suboxone contains two ingredients. The first, buprenorphine, is an opioid, and the second, naloxone, is a special narcotic drug that reverses the effects of other narcotic medicines.

Pentaquarks, new subatomic particles, found at Large Hadron Collider

Data from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) outside Geneva appears to have proved the existence of particles made of five quarks, solving a 50-year-old puzzle about the building blocks of matter, scientists said on Tuesday.

Quarks are the tiny ingredients of subatomic particles such as protons and neutrons, which are made of three quarks. The less common and more unstable mesons, particles found in cosmic rays, have one quark and one antiquark.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Particle physicists like to joke that studying matter with colliders is like smashing two mechanical clocks together and trying to guess what the clocks looked like based on the springs, gears, and levers that fly out. Let us take that analogy one step further and speculate that given enough speed at the moment of collision, individual teeth from the clock gears will come flying out as separate distinct pieces. But clearly, prior to that moment of collision, they never did exist as separate distinct pieces. Their separateness is created by the collision at that very moment. The same may well be true of the ultra-tiny particles generated by the collisions of the LHC, including whatever we may be asked to accept on faith as the "God Particle." They may be artifacts of the experimental method, and not of natural processes.

Censored By Sanction? Barclays Freezes Accounts Of Russia's News Agency

The UK has frozen the bank account of Russia's Rossiya Segodnya news agency without any explanation. "To close the account of one of the world’s leading news agencies is censorship, the direct obstruction of journalists’ work," Dmitry Kiselyov, head of the news agency, exclaimed, asking "what kind of press freedom and democracy can Britain claim to have if it prevents one of the world's largest news agencies from working in the country?" As RT reports, while no official justification for the move has been offered, a source in the banking sector told the agency the Exchequer has put Dmitry Kiselyov on an anti-Russian sanctions list. With David Cameron in full tyrannical 1984-mode, this latest move is perhaps not entirely surprising (though we await the boomerang from Putin).

'Stunning historical mistake': Netanyahu says Israel is not bound by Iran nuclear deal

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says Israel is not bound by the nuclear deal between Iran and world powers, adding that it will always defend itself against Tehran, which “continues to seek its destruction.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Netanyahu has a real problem. With the P5+1 deal completed, world attention is going to go back to Israel's reign of destruction on Gaza a year ago, and without the distraction of trying to ban Iran's imaginary nuclear weapons, world opinion will turn to banning Israel's very real nuclear weapons!

Solar warnings, global warming and crimes against humanity

We’ve been seeing a lot of unexpectedly cool weather across the world. While this may be explained by local phenomenon such as the Northeast Monsoon in Malaysia and the Polar Vortex in the USA, a longer term trend of worldwide cooling is headed our way.

I say this because the sun – the main source of light and heat for our planet – is approaching a combined low point in output. Solar activity rises and falls in different overlapping cycles, and the low points of several cycles will coincide in the near future:

A) 11-year Schwabe Cycle which had a minimum in 2008 and is due for the next minimum in 2019, then 2030. Even at its recent peak (2013) the sun had its lowest recorded activity in 200 years.

B) 87-year Gleissberg cycle which has a currently ongoing minimum period from 1997 – 2032, corresponding to the observed ‘lack of global warming’ (more on that later).

C) 210-year Suess cycle which has its next minimum predicted to be around 2040.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wonder what all those losers who bought into Al Gore's BS and now can;t admit they were made fools of will say now. The Sun hates Al Gore? The Sun is getting checks from the big oil companies?

California Now Wants to be First State to Mandate Adult Vaccines – Criminal Penalties for those Who Refuse

In a brazen act of medical tyranny, California recently became the first state in the U.S. where lawmakers removed religious exemptions to those opposing vaccines for their children. The bill now signed into law, SB277, faces legal hurdles in court next.

Now, legislators in California want to pass the “first US adult vaccine mandate with NO personal exemptions and CRIMINAL penalties for failure to comply.” SB 792, would eliminate an adult’s right to exempt themselves from one, some, or all vaccines, a risk-laden medical procedure.

Will California soon become a medical police state?

The oncoming disaster in public pensions: The $4 trillion retirement savings deficit and the bill of payouts for pensioners.

Americans have done a very poor job saving for retirement. In many cases, families simply have very little left over each month to save after monthly expenses chomp away at their net take home pay. Pensions used to be common. In 1975 you had 88 percent of private sector workers and 98 percent of state and local sector workers covered by defined benefit plans (that is a pension). By 2011 only 1 in 5 private sector workers had access to a pension. Public sector workers still have access to pensions for the large part but the math is not working out.

809 Area Code Scam

This long distance phone scam causes consumers to inadvertently incur high charges on their phone bills. Consumers usually receive a message telling them to call a phone number with an 809, 284, 649, or 876 area code in order to collect a prize, find out information about a sick relative, etc. The caller assumes the number is a typical three-digit U.S. area code; however, the caller is actually connected to a phone number outside the United States, often in Canada or the Caribbean, and charged international call rates. Unfortunately, consumers don't find out that they have been charged higher international call rates until they receive their bill.

AT&T recommends the following tips to help avoid the 809 area code scam:

Return calls to familiar numbers only. As a general rule, return calls from numbers that contain familiar or recognizable area codes. You may call your directory assistance or long distance operator to check the area code location.

Iran nuclear deal: Israel fumes at 'West's surrender to the axis of evil'

Israeli officials have reacted with fury at the announcement of a historic nuclear deal between Iran and six major world powers.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the breakthrough in negotiations, which will curb Iran's nuclear program in exchange for relief from crippling international sanctions, "a bad mistake of historic proportions".

"Iran is going to receive a sure path to nuclear weapons. Many of the restrictions that were supposed to prevent it from getting there will be lifted," Netanyahu said on Tueesday (14 July). "Iran will get a jackpot, a cash bonanza of hundreds of billions of dollars, which will enable it to continue to pursue its aggression and terror in the region and in the world."

‘Suck Iranian ****’ — Netanyahu’s Farsi twitter account earns negative reviews

In an attempt to speak directly to the Iranian public to muster sentiment against the P5+1 talks between world leaders and Iran set to expire tonight, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has launched a Twitter account in Farsi. Yet the move to convince Iranians the potential deal is a bad one has backfired.

Farsi speakers responded in droves by cursing Netanyahu and the state of Israel!

Greece Just Lost Control Of Its Banks, And Why Deposit Haircuts Are Imminent

Yes, Greek banks may have been insolvent - something that was clear since the first bailout of 2010 - but at least the Greek state had control over them: as such it could have mandated mergers, recapitalizations, liquidity injections, even depositor bail-ins (perhaps the harshest lesson for the ordinary Greek population as a result of this latest crisis is that deposits are not "cash in the bank" but liabilities of insolvent financial organizations).

Sold! German Bank to Control, Sell Greek Public Assets

To save its crumbling economy, Greece was forced to hand over its public assets to an external fund controlled by a German bank, managed by Herr Wolfgang Schaeuble himself.

Greece and its international creditors reached an agreement after long negotiations over the past weekend. The cash-strapped Mediterranean nation will now receive a €95-billion bailout over the next three years in exchange for quite harsh economic reforms.

However, the deal didn't come as easily for Greece. German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble proposed that as much as €50-billion of Greek public assets must be transferred to an external fund and privatized over time.

Privitization means stealing assets paid for by taxpayers and renting those assets back to the people who paid for them.

Greece goes on strike: Civil service workers announce 24-hour walkout after government gives in to creditors... as summit insider reveals leaders' furious rows in tense talks

Greek civil service workers have announced a 24-hour strike in the wake of today's bailout deal amid insider claims that Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras was 'crucified' during marathon overnight talks.

The union, Adedy, wants workers to protest the terms of the agreement Tsipras negotiated with Greece's creditors when their country's parliament votes on the measures needed to receive a crucial third bailout on Wednesday.

While striking a deal was considered vital to securing Greece's future within the euro and preventing the country's economy collapsing, Tsipras agreed to rush key measures on tax hikes, pension reforms, and a debt repayment fund through parliament.

An eurozone official was quoted by the Financial Times as saying: 'They crucified Tsipras in there. Crucified.'

How the U.S. Government Squandered $1 Billion in Taxpayer Funds on “Ghost Schools” and Warlords in Afghanistan

BuzzFeed News obtained internal Ministry of Education data for 2011 that has never before been made public. For Afghanistan overall, the data showed 1,174 schools — almost 1 in every 12 — was a ghost school, an educational facility that the Afghan government publicly claimed was open but that was, in fact, not operating. In the provinces that are the most dangerous to monitor — and into which the U.S. poured the most aid money — that proportion soared. In Kandahar province, where DeNenno served, a full third of the 423 schools the Ministry of Education publicly reported as open in 2011 were not functioning, and in Helmand, it was more than half.

Logically, then, German politicians should be delighted with the outcome of the Brussels talks.

For many in Merkel's conservative party, the thought of giving Greece any kind of bailout at all is complete anathema. "The people there are sick of it," Boehnke told DW. "The way that Tsipras has acted has annoyed a lot of people. A lot of the party are saying we are not going to play along."

Although some of the totals were no doubt influenced by the wind at the top of the pass,the Chilean government reported over 9 feet of snow and the pass remains closed. The ski areas throughout both countries also faired well, measuring anywhere from 2 to 5 feet of snow.

Greece is being treated like a hostile occupied state

Like the Neapolitan Bourbons – benign by comparison – the leaders of the eurozone have learned nothing, and forgotten nothing.

The cruel capitulation forced upon Greece after 31 hours on the diplomatic rack offers no conceivable way out the country’s perpetual crisis. The terms are harsher by a full order of magnitude than those rejected by Greek voters in a landslide referendum a week ago, and therefore can never command democratic assent.

They must be carried through by a Greek parliament still dominated by MPs from Left and Right who loathe every line of the summit statement, the infamous SN 4070/15, and have only agreed – if they have agreed – with a knife to their throats.

EMU inspectors can veto legislation. The emasculation of the Greek parliament has been slipped into the text. All that is missing is a unit of EMU gendarmes.

A Case Study of Israeli Murder

Since 2000 alone, Israel killed around 10,000 Palestinians, including over 2,000 children. The Occupied Territories are virtual free-fire zones.

Israeli soldiers, police and other security forces kill defenseless Palestinians with impunity. Israel's record since its 1947-48 war establishing the Jewish state reflects out-of-control violence and persecution - especially since occupying the West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza in June 1967.

Greece debt crisis: Tsipras could resign after the Greek government vote on European bailout terms

Alexis Tsipras may resign over concessions he made to Greece’s European lenders in Brussels on Monday.

"There is speculation this morning that PM Tsipras is considering a government resignation once these measures have been passed in parliament given the scale of failure in his strategy to get a better deal for Greece," said Derek Halpenny, a European head at the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi.

NASA's Three-Billion-Mile Journey to Pluto Reaches Historic Encounter

Per the plan, the spacecraft currently is in data-gathering mode and not in contact with flight controllers at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physical Laboratory (APL) in Laurel, Maryland. Scientists are waiting to find out whether New Horizons "phones home," transmitting to Earth a series of status updates that indicate the spacecraft survived the flyby and is in good health. The "call" is expected shortly after 9 p.m. tonight.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Given the great distance involved and the low power radio signal, the data rate coming from New Horizons back to Earth is running about 1Kbit or 125 bytes per second. It will take a year for New Horizons to transmit back to Earth all of the data collected during these few hours while it passes Pluto and Charon.

Truth is a Crime Against The State — Paul Craig Roberts

(RINF) - The entire Western edifice rests on lies. There is no other foundation. Just lies.

This makes truth an enemy. Enemies have to be suppressed, and thus truth has to be suppressed.

Truth comes from foreign news sources, such as RT, and from Internet sites, such as this one.

Thus, Washington and its vassals are busy at work closing down independent media.

Washington and its vassals have redefined propaganda. Truth is propaganda if it is told by countries, such as Russia and China, that have independent foreign policies.

Flashback: Hillary Clinton Traveled 956,733 Miles During Her Time as Secretary of State

Hillary Clinton was many things as Secretary of State. One of the most notable, however, was "well-traveled." During her four years as the nation's top diplomat -- and particularly during her final year in that post -- Clinton fashioned herself as something of a George Clooney of global affairs, spending almost as much time up in the air as she did on the ground.

In the process, she broke records. In July of 2012, during a trip to Finland, Clinton met Madeleine Albright's most-countries-traveled-to mark -- the record, at the time -- of 98 countries. She then surpassed it with a trip to Latvia. The new secretary then went on to visit 12 more countries, for a closing total of 112.

If you're keeping track at home, that equates to an average of 28 countries per each year of Clinton's tenure. Imagine all the frequent-flier miles!

Israel and the South African Nuclear Bomb Documents

Secret South African documents reveal that Israel offered to sell nuclear warheads to the apartheid regime, providing the first official documentary evidence of the state's possession of nuclear weapons. The "top secret" minutes of meetings between senior officials from the two countries in 1975 show that South Africa's defence minister, PW Botha, asked for the warheads and Shimon Peres, then Israel's defence minister and now its president, responded by offering them "in three sizes". The two men also signed a broad-ranging agreement governing military ties between the two countries that included a clause declaring that "the very existence of this agreement" was to remain secret.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Now that a deal has been reached with Iran over its non-existent nuclear weapons, it is time to remember that only one nation in the Middle East actually has nuclear weapons, and that is Israel, which has so many nuclear warheads that, as these documents show, they tried to sell one to the former government of South Africa.

Left unanswered; who ELSE did Israel sell nuclear weapons to!

Remembering Gaza’s victims

Documenting Israel’s military assault on Gaza last summer, I witnessed what can only be called atrocities: hospitals and morgues, overwhelmed by the constant flow of casualties; nights of terror under widespread and indiscriminate bombing; attacks on hospitals, ambulances and United Nations schools used as shelters; entire neighborhoods destroyed.

Of all the horrifying statistics, one is particularly shocking: 142 families lost three members or more in single Israeli strikes. I started the project #ObliteratedFamilies — now available for download and exhibitioning all over the world — to document such loss. It began as a project about the victims, but soon became also a project about the survivors. How can one cope with loss on this scale?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Now that a deal has been reached with Iran, Netanyahu has a real problem. The world's attention will shift back to Israel's war crimes, and Israel's nuclear weapons.

Israel arrests hunger striker Khader Adnan day after releasing him

Khader Adnan, a member of the Islamic Jihad political party and resistance group, was arrested today in occupied Jerusalem one day after his release secured by a 55-day hunger strike in Israeli prison.

Palestinian and Israeli media reported that Adnan was detained on his way to worship at al-Aqsa mosque on the occasion of Leilat al-Qadr, which Muslims observe during Ramadan to mark the revelation of the Quran to the Prophet Muhammad.

Israel imposes severe restrictions on Palestinians living under its military occupation regime. The Bethlehem-based Ma’an News Agency reported that access to al-Aqsa mosque was tightened ahead of Leilat al-Qadr.

The Genok Centre is a nationally-designated centre of competence on biosafety issues.

The Troubling Implications of Hillary’s Anti-BDS Letter

In the letter, made public a few days later, Clinton made a number of statements which are not only demonstrably false but raise serious concerns regarding what kind of policies she would pursue as president.

She claimed that the BDS movement was working to “malign and undermine Israel and the Jewish people.” Though some BDS activists target Israel as a whole, most efforts on college campuses and elsewhere focus solely on the Israeli occupation, particularly companies that profit from that occupation and support illegal Israeli settlements in the West Bank. In any case, the BDS campaign does not “malign and undermine” Jews. This cynical effort to depict the movement as anti-Semitic could be an indication of the kind of rhetoric she would use as president to discredit human rights activists who challenge her policies elsewhere.

3 Big Reasons Why The ‘Greek Debt Deal’ Is Really A German Trap

This “deal” was not drafted with the intention of “saving Greece”. As I explained in my previous article, these negotiations were all about setting up Greece for eviction from the euro. You see, the truth is that Greece desperately wants to stay in the euro, but Germany (and allies such as Finland) want Greece out. Since Germany can’t simply order Greece to leave the euro, they need some sort of legal framework which will make it possible, and that is what this new “deal” provides. As I am about to explain, there are all kinds of conditions that must be satisfied and hurdles that must be crossed before Greece ever sees a single penny. If there is a single hiccup along the way, and this is what the Germans are counting on, Greece will be ejected from the eurozone. This “deal” has been designed to fail so that the Germans can get what they have wanted all along.

Clinton can’t separate herself from foreign-policy buffoons Saban and Adelson

Haim Saban has been an important donor to the Democratic Party and the Clintons personally since 2002. He also supports a pro-Israel think tank at the Brookings Institute and various charitable causes in Israel and the U.S. As outlined by Connie Bruck in a New Yorker profile (May 2010), in 2002 he donated $7 million to the Democratic National Committee for construction of its new building, he donated $2 million to the Clinton library; he has contributed at least $5 million to the Clinton foundation; and he apparently has paid hundreds of thousands to the Clintons for speaking fees.

Where does this money come from? The New Yorker profile traces Saban’s fortune in part to tax fraud.

Landmark deal reached on Iran nuclear program

After arduous talks that spanned 20 months, negotiators have reached a landmark deal aimed at reining in Iran's nuclear program.

The agreement, a focal point of U.S. President Barack Obama's foreign policy, appears set to reshape relations between Iran and the West, with its effects likely to ripple across the volatile Middle East.

Representatives of Iran, the United States and the other nations involved in the marathon talks were holding a final meeting in Vienna on Tuesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Congress will now try to block the bill with the oversight they voted themselves a month ago. Obama has already stated he will veto such a bill. If Israel cannot bribe enough congressmen to override the veto, then Netanyahu will likely attack Iran. Already Israel's whores are all over the media and the web screaming about non-existent Iranian nuclear weapons, how Iran should have been starved intso total surrender, and of course not a word about Israel's nuclear weapons coupled with an unending history of belligerence to the rest of the world!

In the long term, this campaign of sanctions as an attack on Iran to force their compliance with Israel's demands has reminded the world that the US has weaponized the global financial system and its reliance on the US dollar. This will accelerate the rest of the world's move away from the dollar and towards a multi-polar economy, where the nation with the global currency cannot use it as a club to dominate and dictate to other nations.

As a side note to the United States Secret Service; STAY AWAKE! Israel has a prior history of assassinating world leaders who refuse to do as they are told!

Putin Leads BRICS Uprising

Let’s cut to the chase: Leaders of the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) realize that global security cannot be entrusted to a country that sees war as a acceptable means for achieving its geopolitical objectives. They also realize that they won’t be able to achieve financial stability as long as Washington dictates the rules, issues the de facto “international” currency, and controls the main levers of global financial power. This is why the BRICS have decided to chart a different course, to gradually break free from the existing Bretton Woods system, and to create parallel system that better serves their own interests.

ANOTHER “TERROR” ARREST; ANOTHER MENTALLY ILL MAN, ARMED BY THE FBI

U.S. law enforcement officials announced another terror arrest on Monday, after arming a mentally ill man and then charging him with having guns. ABC News quoted a “senior federal official briefed on the arrest” as saying: “This is a very bad person arrested before he could do very bad things.” But in a sting reminiscent of so many others conducted by the FBI since 9/11, Alexander Ciccolo, 23, “aka Ali Al Amriki,” was apparently a mentally ill man who was doing nothing more than ranting about violent jihad and talking (admittedly in frightening ways) about launching attacks—until he met an FBI informant. At that point, he started making shopping lists for weapons.

Greece ‘austerity deal’ explained in 1-minute video

hat tips: What Really Happened, Zero Hedge

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

Appropriately for Greece being known as a birthplace of democratic ideals, Star Wars was created by George Lucas to tell the story of democracy devolving into vicious psychopathic empire. Real-world Greece (and here) is subject to vicious psychopathic wanna-be lords who only and always create debt owed to them, then demanding public austerity as the OBVIOUS mechanics of adding negative numbers forever only and always increases total debt.

The punchline of satire (my attempts here) and real-world is the same:

Be willing work-animals/slaves or die.

The .01% literal psychopathic “leaders” (and here) control today’s empire the very same as you read in high school history classes by controlling:

IT STARTS: GREEKS REBEL AGAINST BAILOUT, RISK COLLAPSE

Greece’s union of civil servants, Adedly, called for a 24-hour strike on Wednesday, and for a series of demonstrations, the first one tonight at Syntagma Square, just below the Parliament, and another one on Wednesday evening, when Parliament is expected to vote on the new, even tougher, and immensely hated bailout package. The union for local government employees, Poe-Ota, also called for a 24-hour strike on Wednesday, the AFP reported. Two other demonstrations against austerity and the “euro” are planned for Monday night, one organized via social networks, the other by Antarsya, an anti-euro party that didn’t make it into Parliament.

Greece goes on strike: Civil service workers announce 24-hour walkout after government gives in to creditors... as summit insider reveals leaders' furious rows in tense talks

Greek civil service workers have announced a 24-hour strike in the wake of today's bailout deal amid insider claims that Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras was 'crucified' during marathon overnight talks.

The union, Adedy, wants workers to protest the terms of the agreement Tsipras negotiated with Greece's creditors when their country's parliament votes on the measures needed to receive a crucial third bailout on Wednesday.

While striking a deal was considered vital to securing Greece's future within the euro and preventing the country's economy collapsing, Tsipras agreed to rush key measures on tax hikes, pension reforms, and a debt repayment fund through parliament.

An eurozone official was quoted by the Financial Times as saying: 'They crucified Tsipras in there. Crucified.'

US Automakers Worst Nightmare: Chinese Auto Inventories Explode In May

A week ago we exposed the massive number of cars piling up in GM's parking lots in China. A few days later, we note that Chinese auto sales have collapsed at the fastest rate in 3 years and an increasing number of new orders are being cancelled as the stock market crashes. But the triple whammy for US auto manufacturers - who have incessantly pitched China as their growth engine - is news from Huaxia Times that China's import car dealers saw inventory days reach a mind-blowing 143 days in May. For context, the normal average has been 24-36 days. Once again it appears the serial extrapolators at the automakers, excited by the serial extrapolators at the big banks have excitedly mal-invested right at the turn.

FLASHBACK - Thousands of teenage girls report feeling seriously ill after routine school cancer vaccination

When Caron Ryalls was asked to sign consent forms so that her then 13-year-old daughter, Emily, could be vaccinated against cervical cancer, she assumed it was the best way to protect Emily’s long-term health.

Yet the past four years have turned into a nightmare for the family as Emily soon suffered apparent side effects. Only two weeks after her first HPV injection, the teenager experienced dizziness and nausea.

“The symptoms grew increasingly worse after the second and third injections, and I went to A&E several times with severe chest and abdominal pains as well as difficulty breathing,” Emily, now 17, said. “One time I couldn’t move anything on one side of my body. I didn’t know what was happening.”

There is no democracy in Europe. None.

Varoufakis said that Schäuble, Germany’s finance minister and the architect of the deals Greece signed in 2010 and 2012, was “consistent throughout”. “His view was ‘I’m not discussing the programme – this was accepted by the previous [Greek] government and we can’t possibly allow an election to change anything.

“So at that point I said ‘Well perhaps we should simply not hold elections anymore for indebted countries’, and there was no answer. The only interpretation I can give [of their view] is, ‘Yes, that would be a good idea, but it would be difficult. So you either sign on the dotted line or you are out.’”

Australian Navy Backs Off From F-35B Joint Strike Fighter

The Australian military has decided to cancel plans to purchase F-35B Joint Strike Fighter short-take-off-and-vertical landing aircraft and place 12 of the aircraft on two of their larger assault ships, citing the challenges of needing to rework the ships to accommodate the plane, according to published reports.

“Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s proposal to put F-35 fighter jets on the Navy’s two 27,000-tonne troop transport assault ships has been quietly dropped,” writes The Australian Financial Review.

The two assault ships, which are the largest in the Australian Navy, would need a massive amount of modifications in order to host the F-35B, the report said.

"From a foreign intelligence service, the BND received information about a suspected data tap at EADS Germany," the letter is reported to have said.

Greece Just Lost Control Of Its Banks, And Why Deposit Haircuts Are Imminent

One of the preconditions imposed on Greece for a deal is that it signs into law European rules that would put euro zone authorities at the ECB and in Brussels, rather than Athens, in charge of identifying and closing or breaking up sick banks. This in turn could lead to a shake-up of the sector that could see some banks close, with losses pushed onto bondholders and possibly even large depositors. In such circumstances, there would be little that Athens could do to prevent this.

FLASHBACK 2014 - Government agents 'directly involved' in most high-profile US terror plots

Nearly all of the highest-profile domestic terrorism plots in the United States since 9/11 featured the "direct involvement" of government agents or informants, a new report says.

Some of the controversial "sting" operations "were proposed or led by informants", bordering on entrapment by law enforcement. Yet the courtroom obstacles to proving entrapment are significant, one of the reasons the stings persist.

The lengthy report, released on Monday by Human Rights Watch, raises questions about the US criminal justice system's ability to respect civil rights and due process in post-9/11 terrorism cases. It portrays a system that features not just the sting operations but secret evidence, anonymous juries, extensive pretrial detentions and convictions significantly removed from actual plots.

"In some cases the FBI may have created terrorists out of law-abiding individuals by suggesting the idea of taking terrorist action or encouraging the target to act," the report alleges.
