Open letter to the Heads of State of NAM countries – Friends not enemies

Distinguished Heads of State and members of the Non-Affiliated Movement,

Over the past four decades, your countries have been dragged into the UN-delegated Global Depopulation Policy and forced to subject the people to chemical and biological agents that undermine human fertility and to psychosocial and economic measures that subvert the family.

Protests Rage In Taiwan Over China Trade Deal

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post

With the taste of the Libyan tragedy, the Syrian destabilization, and the Ukrainian coup still lingering in the mouths of the citizens of those nations, the unfortunate fruits of those labors are now clearly visible in the enormous death toll, savagery, and austerity that is currently engulfing the victim countries.

Those destabilization campaigns, all initiated with violence from the beginning, yet portrayed as “peaceful democracy-loving protesters” by the Western media, were paraded in front of millions of American television screens night after night for the purpose of propagandizing a frighteningly gullible public at home who themselves have a natural inclination toward supporting the underdog in any given fight (unless that underdog is the overt target of the United States).

Banking Union Time Bomb: Eurocrats Authorize Bailouts AND Bail-Ins

On March 20, 2014, European Union officials reached an historic agreement to create a single agency to handle failing banks. Media attention has focused on the agreement involving the single resolution mechanism (SRM), a uniform system for closing failed banks. But the real story for taxpayers and depositors is the heightened threat to their pocketbooks of a deal that now authorizes both bailouts and “bail-ins” – the confiscation of depositor funds.

The Financial New World Order

Following the 2009 G20 summit, plans were announced for implementing the creation of a new global currency to replace the US dollar’s role as the world reserve currency. Point 19 of the communiqué released by the G20 at the end of the Summit stated, “We have agreed to support a general SDR allocation which will inject $250bn (£170bn) into the world economy and increase global liquidity.” SDRs, or Special Drawing Rights, are “a synthetic paper currency issued by the International Monetary Fund.” As the Telegraph reported, “the G20 leaders have activated the IMF’s power to create money and begin global "quantitative easing". In doing so, they are putting a de facto world currency into play. It is outside the control of any sovereign body. Conspiracy theorists will love it.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This conspiracy theorist thinks it is a really bad idea for the people of planet Earth.

Israel Reneges on Prisoner Release in Major Blow to Peace Talks

The Israel-Palestinian peace talks appear to be dead today after the Israeli government reneged on its last round of Palestinian prisoner releases, which were due to be done on Saturday.

At the start of the talks, Israel agreed to release 104 prisoners held since before 1993,but then broke the releases up into four “batches.” 78 were freed, but Israel made no effort to follow through on the final batch.

Palestinian officials called the move a slap in the face not only to the peace process, but to the US government’s efforts to mediate a continuation of the talks, which according to some reports Israel was trying to parlay into getting spy Jonathan Pollard freed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry: never, EVER go to Israel again, or allow senior Israeli officials to come to the US after this debacle!!

Withdraw every bit of financial and military aid right now, and de-couple the Israeli military from US military command.

Because with "friends" like the Israelis.........who needs enemies?!?!?

Venice votes to split from Italy as 89% of the city's residents opt to form a new independent state

Venetians have voted overwhelmingly for their own sovereign state in a ‘referendum’ on independence from Italy.

Inspired by Scotland’s separatist ambitions, 89 per cent of the residents of the lagoon city and its surrounding area, opted to break away from Italy in an unofficial ballot.

The proposed ‘Repubblica Veneta’ would include the five million inhabitants of the Veneto region and could later expand to include parts of Lombardy, Trentino and Friuli-Venezia Giulia.

Government Eliminates Interest on Nova Scotia Student Loans

Nova Scotia graduates no longer have to pay interest on their provincial student loans, saving them money as they start their careers.

"Eliminating the interest on provincial loans was our commitment from day one, and we're keeping our promise to students," said Labour and Advanced Education Minister Kelly Regan. "We know that every dollar counts when graduates are beginning their careers, and we hope this provides some relief to young people as they build their lives in Nova Scotia."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ending interest on student loans would fix the student loan bubble problem here in the United States ... which is why you will never see it happen here!

Beyond a Doubt: Our Media War Propaganda and The Film You Almost Didn’t See

This is the story about a film which none of were supposed to see. Not because the film wasn’t up to professional journalistic standards, or that it was of poor quality. It was neither of those. Against the odds and the establishment-owned international media syndicate, award-winning filmmaker and journalist John Pilger reveals one of the most damning indictments of American and British mainstream media. The content of this timeless film is stunning, and show beyond any reasonable doubt, that our media are not only complicit in advancing conflict around the globe, but are actively engaged in pushing it on behalf of those who seek to profit from international conflagrations.

When an interviewer recently confronted Vladimir Putin about Europe’s American-made missile defense system, the President of the Russian Federation couldn’t help but laugh right in his face.

According to the journalist, NATO’s missile defense system is pointed at and designed to protect Europe from the nuclear threat posed by Iran, not Russia.

Lindsey Graham Pines for the Bush Days of Torture

I may simply be dense, but it sure seems to me that Huckleberry J. Butchmeup is pining for thumbscrews here, and waxing nostalgic over black sites and packing crates at Bagram. He was first to the fainting couch when the possibility of trying Khalid Sheikh Muhammad in New York City was raised, and worked to make that trial impossible, because of his fear of jihadi bat-missiles and KSM's well-known hypnotic powers which would be used to Muslimize everyone in the tri-state area. And we have now passed into the period in which many of the criminals of the late Avignon Presidency are being more open about the pride they take in their history of governmental sociopathy.

Obama delivers his, perhaps, stupidest speech in Brussels

In Brussels, Barack Obama summed up the results of the US-EU summit. Obama spoke more about Ukraine, rather than about the USA's relations with Europe.

The key event of Obama's European tour was his speech in the Brussels Palace of Fine Arts in front of 2,000 people. His lengthy discourse on the history and common values ??with Europeans was very quickly replaced with anti-Russian rhetoric.

The speech turned out to be a dispute with Russian authorities, entirely devoted to the situation in Ukraine. Obama stated that the United States fully supported the new government in Kiev and promised to help them financially. He then said that it was absurd to assume that the U.S. colluded with nationalists in Kiev, reports.

Ukraine Shocks Population With Staggered 100% Heating Price Increase While Restricting Cash Use

In a TV address to his divided nation, Ukraine's PM Yatsenyuk stunned the people by first suggesting heating prices would rise gradually, then confirming a plan that will see prices rise 100% in the next 2 years (and almost 200% by 2017) as the cost of imported Russian gas is expected to be around $500 (up from the current $84). This standard of living crushing move was then followed by tougher capital controls, restricting cash purchases to around $1300 per person per day after the Central bank basically admitted "amid a tense situation in money markets" it was broke.

Oh yes, things are MUCH better for those Ukrainian people under their new US-imposed unelected puppet regime!

Moody’s Puts Russia On Downgrade Review

Hot on the heels of what S&P said was not a “politically motivated” shift to rating watch, Moody’s (who did not downgrade the USA and are not currently in a lawsuit over such terrible misrepresentations) has decided now is the time to put Russia on rating downgrade watch. The decision was triggered by 3 key factors: the weakening of Russia’s economic strength, potential shifts in investor sentiment, and susceptibility to event risk.

It should be remembered that both Moody's and S&P insisted those mortgage-backed securities were triple-A back in 2008.

Historical Iranian nuclear deal to be shelved again?

The US administration is prepared to accept an Iranian enrichment program as part of an agreement, but it insists that any such program be subject to strict limits capable of ensuring that Iran will not have a rapid “breakout” capability. In other words, Washington wants to be confident that, if Iran attempted to break out of the agreement and build nuclear weapons, it would not have enough time to enrich enough weapons-grade uranium for a single nuclear bomb before the international community could intervene to stop it.

Iran has been claiming for a long time that it has no intention to create a bomb, it just wants its right for peaceful nuclear energy to be respected. Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has recently said that "Iran will only accept a solution that is respectful, that respects the rights of the Iranian people."

Three former ICAP Plc (IAP) brokers will be charged by U.K. prosecutors for helping manipulate benchmark rates, seven months after they were charged in the U.S. for similar offenses.

The U.K. Serious Fraud Office notified Daniel Wilkinson, Colin Goodman and Darrell Read yesterday that they will be charged, the agency said in a statement. That brings the number of people accused in parallel U.S. and U.K. criminal investigations into manipulation of the London interbank offered rate, or Libor, to 14.

Israel Angered by US Refusal to Ease Travel

To ease the travel of its citizens, Israel is pressing to join 38 other countries in the U.S. Visa Waiver Program — a prestigious club of nations whose citizens don't need a preapproved visa to visit America. So far, their efforts have not only been rebuffed, but Israel has seen a spike in the number of young people and military officers rejected entry to the U.S.

Washington says Israel has not been let into the program simply because it has not met the requirements — and has pointed in part to Israel's treatment of Arab-American travelers, drawing sharp denials by Israeli officials of any discrimination.

West Steps Up Disruptive Actions Inside Russia Over Crimea – FSB

Russia's Federal Security Service (FSB) has noted an increase in foreign disruptive actions since the souring of relations with the West over the situation in Crimea and appropriate measures are being taken to protect the country, a senior FSB official said Friday.

The fate of Crimea, a predominantly ethnic Russian region which seceded from Ukraine and joined Russia last week, has triggered the worst East-West standoff since the Cold War.

"There has been a sharp increase in foreign threats to the state. The legal desire of the Crimean people and those in the eastern regions of Ukraine to join Russia evokes hysteria on the part of the United States and its allies," said Alexander Malevany, the FSB's counterterrorism director, at a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

"We have been talking with other countries diplomatically, though, if you remember the Security Council vote last weekend. It was significant that China, for example, abstained and did not vote with Russia," State department deputy spokesperson Marie Harf told reporters.

"Well, I don't think we're there yet. Obviously, we've been consulting very closely with the Europeans about sanctions," Ms Harf said when asked if the US was going to seek Iran-oil like sanction from countries outside NATO.

Now former Jemez Springs Police Chief Shane Harger is “gainfully unemployed and seeking employment,” he told WND Wednesday.

Media Control Grows More Difficult ... And Obvious

We have noticed a trend toward boldness – even brazenness – when it comes to manipulating the media in the US. It's as if politicians especially are not even bothering to hide their intentions.

We recently ran an article entitled, "Congress Mulls Licensing Speech?" that reported on this trend.

The subject of the article was the shield law that Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York was trying to push through the US Senate. Schumer was portraying the bill as something that was needed to protect "journalists" from US Intel agencies that are increasingly asking courts to place reporters in jail for not revealing their sources upon request.

Of course, what would have been more reasonable – were Schumer ever apt to be reasonable – would be to pass a law forbidding Intel agencies from trying to put reporters in jail.

Russia Launches Nuclear-War Drill, Saying It Was Long Scheduled

Russia on Thursday began drilling for nuclear war in a massive, three-day exercise it asserts was planned months ago, Nezavisimaya Gazeta reports.

Roughly 10,000 military personnel were expected to participate in the maneuvers, which are intended as practice for a large-scale nuclear offensive, according to the Russian newspaper. Exercise participants were set to position and prepare missile-firing units for launch, and to practice various administrative and support functions for the operation, said Col. Igor Yegorov, a Russian Defense Ministry spokesman for the strategic missile services.

Troops were expected to conduct surveillance for chemical, biological and radiological threats, as well as to identify and stop conventional efforts to thwart the offensive.

Most products containing 'soy protein' or 'texturized vegetable protein' are made using the toxic chemical hexane

Soy protein is a common ingredient not just in health foods but also in any food where a cheap source of protein is needed. Texturized vegetable protein, made with soy, is actually used to bulk up hamburgers in schools and prisons.

To make concentrated soy protein, however, the fat must first be removed from soy beans. This is commonly achieved by bathing the soy beans or soy flour in hexane, a byproduct of gas refining and grain processing.

Hexane is a regulated air pollutant that has been known to cause skin and nervous system damage to factory workers, but the FDA does not track its use or presence in food.

Thomas Jefferson frequently inveighed against war, although in moves typical for Jefferson, he acted against his own professed ideology on a number of occasions.

Joint-stock bank "Russia" sent a notice to a number of U.S. banks to inform them about the move to close correspondent accounts in foreign currency and decided to work only with the Russian national currency.

The bank does not need financial support, not even from the Central Bank of Russia.

Central Bankers’ Basel III scheme will worsen Worldwide Recession

relevant snip:
An OECD study estimates that the medium-term harmful impact of Basel III implementation on GDP growth is in the range of ?0.05% to ?0.15% per year – just what’s needed in a worldwide recession! To meet the capital requirements effective in 2015 banks are estimated to need to increase their lending spreads on average by about .15%. The capital requirements effective as of 2019 could increase bank lending spreads by about .5%. Rising interest rates could significantly hurt small bank capital positions because a 3% upward swing in interest rates could drop a bank’s capital by 30%, placing the bank in an undercapitalized position, forcing it dramatically to reduce loans. Again, the downhill snowball effect.

US forces on nuclear “false flag” high alert: Duff

The United States is on alert and has deployed military assets to defend the Atlantic coastline from New York to Charleston from attack by a cruise type missile or low flying aircraft.

Heightened security measures began with Israel’s increasing threats against Iran but increased with the mysterious disappearance of Malaysian Airlines flight 370.

The US, however, believes someone other than Iran is planning an attack, on the US, not Israel, and planning to blame Iran.

Yesterday, investigative journalist Chris Bollyn made a startling discovery:

“According to reports from plane-spotters, Israel has an identical Malaysia Airlines
Boeing 777-200 in storage in Tel Aviv since November 2013. The only visible difference between the missing plane and the one in Tel Aviv would be its serial number. What do the Israelis have planned with the twin Malaysia Airlines plane?

Webmaster's Commentary: 


Let me toss out a possible scenario here, one that fits all of the available information.

1. Israel either electronically hijacks Flight MH370, or bribes the pilot to fly the plane off course and wander around being picked up by military radar and seen by witnesses on the ground to make it obvious the plane was diverted and not the victim of a simple crash.

2. Then the real flight 370 is hidden or ditched someplace (like the South Indian Ocean) where it was not supposed to be found.

3. Israel has had an identical 777 in Malaysian livery since last November, plenty of time for any "special" modifications to be made to the plane, including the installation of remote controls and possibly a nuclear weapon.

4. The specific aircraft in Tel Aviv is a Boeing 777-2H6/ER, with an even longer range than the missing MH370 777-200ER.

5. The media keeps the story of MH370 constantly in front of everyone (even though they have nothing new to report) so that the image of a 777 in Malaysian livery is on everyone's mind.

6. Israel flies (by remote control) the second 777 non-stop from Tel Aviv towards an airport in a major US city. Because the plane is very large it is easy to see and recognize from the ground. On approach, the 777 veers off from the flight path and flies low over the target area to make sure it is spotted and recognized (mistakenly) as the missing Flight 370.

7. The Israeli 777 then activates its payload, possibly a nuclear weapon.

8. The corporate media blames Iran for the mushroom cloud. Or, if the 777 flies towards Washington DC, they might even try to frame Russia for it.

The plane does not even have to actually hit a target like DC or New York, but could be "intercepted", detonating the nuclear weapon high in the sky miles out to the Atlantic, making for great photos and videos but causing little real damage on the ground.

Now then, a moment of common sense. Why would Iran DO such a stupid and reckless thing, even if they had a nuclear weapon, knowing that retaliation would be instant and devastating? Why would anyone do such a thing? The answer is that they would not. If this scenario in fact happens, there is no question it is another false-flag attack, like Israel's attack on the USS Liberty, like the Lavon affair, like the attack on the USS Cole, like 9-11, to trick us into hating the designated invasion target.

Why fructose sugar makes us sick

In 1972, British physiologist, nutritionist and physician John Yudkin summarized years of research on the dangers of eating too much sugar in his book Pure, White and Deadly. Julia Llewellyn Smith's recent article, "The man who tried to warn us about sugar," details how the sugar industry ruined Yudkin's scientific reputation, led scientists astray, and postponed action by health authorities for decades.

With sugar overconsumption now firmly established as a major cause of obesity, diabetes and heart disease, Yudkin is seen as a prophet. But in the 1970s, an opposing theory was that saturated fats were the primary cause of heart disease. Its leading proponent, University of Minnesota epidemiologist Ancel Keys, engaged in a highly personal attack on Yudkin in the scientific literature: "Yudkin has no theoretical basis or experimental evidence to support his claim… [it] is disproved by many studies superior in methodology and/or magnitude to his own."

The leak to kill all leaks

After having been under attack for weeks by a barrage of leaked documents and recordings about corruption at the highest state level, a few days before the elections, the beleaguered Turkish government all of a sudden is off the hook after a spectacular leak was published online, one that immediately eclipses all previous leaks.
Why? Because the latest leak took away the focus on corruption since it touches directly upon the security of the country. Because everybody is angry and concerned about such a blatant example of espionage. Because the government cleverly linked the people responsible for the security leak to the ones who masterminded the corruption tapes.

Putin calls Obama to discuss proposal for Ukraine, says White House

Russian president Vladimir Putin called Barack Obama on Friday to discuss a US diplomatic proposal for Ukraine and the US president told Putin that Russia must pull back its troops and not move deeper into Ukraine, the White House said.

It was believed to have been the first direct conversation between Obama and Putin since the US and its European allies began imposing sanctions on Putin's inner circle and threatened to penalise key sectors of Russia's economy.

Russia's reinforcement of troops near Ukraine has brought the total forces there to as many as 40,000, US officials estimated on Friday in a buildup that has increasingly worried Washington in recent days.

We are the Outlaws: Christians, Gun Owners, Constitutionalists

Have you noticed the debate over politics on mainstream TV has become far more heated? Lately, those giving commentary on political issues seem to be entrenched in a war of words and ideologies that have reached a new fever pitch. There is a level of urgency in these debates that go beyond the topic at hand. It’s as if there is a new awakening or awareness of impending doom.

This sense of impending doom can be fueled by a multitude of factors. You may believe that you have a government that is either in denial over the state of the economy or trying to suppress the truth about it to reduce panic. Even worse, you may believe the government willfully and with intent plans to destroy the economy to usher in Marshall Law and total control.

Monsanto’s Pesticides Are Partly Responsible for the Collapse of the Bee

Developing research found that the bees were ingesting systemic pesticides that were now a part of the DNA structure of the plants that bees were pollinating. Historically speaking, when pesticides were used in the past, they were sprayed on leaves or the body of the plant, which left the pollen and bees unaffected. The pollen now, however, carries the same DNA as the rest of the plant, thus contaminating the entire food supply that the bees depend on.

A clear picture of how Monsanto’s pesticides are partly responsible for the collapse of bee colonies is becoming more evident. Tests done on bees that were exposed to Monsanto’s Mon810 corn, a genetically engineered corn crop that produces insecticide Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) showed that, once ingested by the bees, Bt binds to receptors within the gut which stop the bees from eating.

MSNBC Hosts Ignore Unionization Effort

A couple months ago, MSNBC host Ed Schultz ignited something resembling an online controversy by ducking some important questions about unionization efforts at Peacock Productions. Peacock Productions is the nonfiction production wing of NBC News and The Writer’s Guild of America-East (WGA-E) has been fighting for a union vote since 2012. They envision portable health insurance and overtime pay for staffers. The company’s most recent effort to squash agitation involves their claim that producers can’t actually vote, on whether to unionize, because they’re technically “supervisors.” This farcical suggestion was enough to delay the vote and get the, seemingly torpid, National Labor Relations Board to investigate the suggestion. Five months later, the NLRB ruled on behalf of the producers; that was two weeks ago. Peacock Productions is appealing the ruling.

Million jars of peanut butter dumped in New Mexico after Costco refused to take the product or let it be donated to food banks

Bankruptcy trustee Clarke Coll said he had no other choice after Costco Wholesale refused to take shipment of the Sunland Inc. product and declined requests to let it be donated to food banks

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I cannot tell you how much this pisses me off. Fridays are when Claire and I take off after the radio show to try and obtain food for the local food distribution program we support (one of two). By going to outlet stores we can get good prices on bulk items, but we still pay for this out of our own pocket. Lately supplies are getting shorty which means the prices go up and even at the higher prices there is not enough. There have been days we emptied the rack at the local bread company outlet and still did not have enough.

So when I hear stories about perfectly good food being sent to a landfill instead of food banks I get really pissed off. If I had a COSTCO membership I would tear it up right now.

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The Boyd shooting prompted a larger than usual turnout at Thursday’s meeting of the Police Oversight Commission which is supposed to police the police department.

The commissioners listened to public complaints but said they have no power to do much about them.

“There’s very little that can be done by the POC, particularly before the investigation is completed,” said POC Commission Chair Richard Shine.

Lies About Rwanda Mean More Wars If Not Corrected

Urge the ending of war these days and you'll very quickly hear two words: "Hitler" and "Rwanda." While World War II killed some 70 million people, it's the killing of some 6 to 10 million (depending on who's included) that carries the name Holocaust. Never mind that the United States and its allies refused to help those people before the war or to halt the war to save them or to prioritize helping them when the war ended -- or even to refrain from letting the Pentagon hire some of their killers. Never mind that saving the Jews didn't become a purpose for WWII until long after the war was over. Propose eliminating war from the world and your ears will ring with the name that Hillary Clinton calls Vladimir Putin and that John Kerry calls Bashar al Assad.

A new report published Thursday by Center for Effective Government and National People’s Action uncovers how the shrinking corporate tax base is driving critical budget shortfalls and service cuts at the state and federal level. The report outlines exactly how much revenue has been lost due to a precipitous decline in corporate income tax rates and an explosion of loopholes. The report shows that since the recession, corporate income tax revenues have shrunk considerably, despite soaring profits, leaving individuals to pick up the slack.

The Militarized U.S. Police, by the Numbers

Many of us know retired police officers who remember a world where it was considered a failure to draw a weapon unless under direct attack. Even if such an action was required, the result was nightmare inducing. Today's police seem to have lost such empathy. As a consequence, police are rarely a welcome sight these days; they are being equipped and trained as if they are an occupying force (even in small towns), replete with body armor, tactical gear, and vehicles coming straight from the US military at bargain prices.

What If Everything You Were Ever Taught Was A Lie?

Ultimately, the education system can be blamed for feeding us propaganda and forcing us to regurgitate it so we can “fit in” with the rest of society. Our public school systems are set up to get the students primed for economic slavery without ever offering courses that allow to students to think creatively or freely.

If you trace the company’s who print our children’s textbooks, you’ll find a Zionist agenda behind them all. For example, George W. Bush’s grandfather, Prescott Bush, was arrested for funding both sides of World War II, yet we never learned this in school. Why? Because had we learned this, NEITHER Bush would have been elected president for having a traitor in their lineage.

And surely, Christopher Columbus didn’t “discover” America.

An Insider reveals the Experience on a Natural Farm where they used GMO corn and round up

There is a distinction between organic and natural farms. That is one of certification. The organic farmer goes through a process of years of record keeping and submitting to the certification boards overseeing the organic foods. The natural farmer is not certified but does utilize organic farming processes in producing our food. The true natural and organic farmer is on the front lines in the war for our food and deserve all of our support. No, what I'm speaking of here is the modern-day carpetbaggers..... those farmers that don't really care about the outcome or which side ultimately wins out, just so long as they profit from it.
