German Social Democrats Win City-State Elections in Hamburg

Germany’s Social Democratic Party emerged as the clear winner in the city-state parliament elections in Hamburg Sunday, exit polls indicated, with the euro-skeptical and anti-immigration Alternative fuer Deutschland party likely to gain its first seats in a western-German state parliament.

The Social Democrats secured 47% of the votes in the party’s stronghold, according to exit polls published by ARD broadcaster, while the AfD secured 5.2%.

The first projections on early returns will be published later Sunday. Chancellor Angela Merkel ’s conservative Christian Democratic Union only gained a historic low of 16% while the pro-business Free Democrats got 7.0%, a rare victory after a string of defeats in state elections over the past months.

AMERICAN MEDIA GUILTY OF MURDER BY COMPLICITY

Western, especially American, reactions to this week’s cold-blooded murder of three innocent Muslim college students in North Carolina have been grossly inadequate.

Major American news networks, have, more or less, treated the monstrous crime as a passing banality. Critical questions that ought to be asked were never asked, which means the stage is set for the perpetration of the next act of murder targeting Muslims.

Both sides have a nuclear posture where land-based missiles could be authorized for use in less than 15 minutes...that is a dangerous state of play."

CLIMATEGATE: A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY (UPDATED FOR WINTER 2015)

The corporate media has laucnhed a blitz of claims that 2014 was the hottest year on record, despite the record cold and snow this winter. The claim that 2014 is the hottest year on record was put forward by a Japanese global warming researcher and supported by both NASA and NOAA, which work for the same government that assured you Saddam had nuclear weapons.

However, NASA is already hedging their bets by admitting that the statistical methods used to arrive at this claim have a very wide margin of error, so much so that it is only a 38% chance the claim is accurate.

Meanwhile, the satellite launched to measure Earth's temperature does not confirm this claim. In fact, 2014 came in at sixth place in the time since since the satellite was launched!

Bitter Arctic blast could bring record cold

A bitter Artic blast that blanketed Western Pennsylvania with several inches of snow already this weekend likely will set a new weather record today, which could see wind chills as low as 30 below in some places.

The high is expected to reach 3 — beating the record of 8 set in 1943.

“We'll definitely break the low high record,” said meteorologist John Darnley with the National Weather Service in Moon.

The low overnight is expected to reach minus 7.

In addition, a north northwest wind 6 to 9 mph is expected, with a wind chill value as low as -27, and the area is under a wind chill warning until noon Feb. 15.

Snow and dangerously high winds roared across parts of New England in the dark of night to face an army of road crews and emergency workers Sunday, who had readied themselves for the fourth winter onslaught in less than a month. The odds favored the ominous weather.

More than 6 feet of snow already stood in some areas from previous storms; a blizzard warning was in effect for coastal communities from Connecticut to Maine into Monday; and a bone-chilling blast of cold, with lows of minus 10 degrees was in the Sunday night forecast in parts of the region.

Sealing off skies: Iran finalizes 360 degree early warning air defense radar

Iran is close to deploying an early-warning radar system of its own to detect missile launches, stealth aircraft and drones thousands of kilometers from its borders. Once fully deployed, the Sepehr radar system will secure Iran's entire airspace.

Iran is introducing its most long-range Sepehr (Sky) phased array radar system, capable of controlling airspaces of all of its neighbor countries in the Middle East and Central Asia, as well as vast parts of Northern Africa, Eastern Europe and Russia.

With a range of up to 3,000 kilometers in distance and up to 300 kilometers into space, Sepehr radar system will protect the country's airspace completely.

Lapid: Netanyahu has 'lost touch with reality,' should no longer be Israel's PM

Yesh Atid party leader Yair Lapid said Saturday that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu "has lost touch with reality" and should no longer serve as Israel's premier.

"He [Netanyahu] has lost all connection to the reality of the concerns of Israel's citizens - with their daily lives and difficulties," Lapid said at a cultural event in Netanya.

During his year-and-eight-month tenure as former finance minister, Lapid said he witnessed the prime minister primarily focus on maintaining his position while he "increasingly lost interest in leading the country."

Lapid indicated that he was more in tune with the concerns of the Israeli public, noting that his experience with the finance portfolio allowed him to direct understanding of the economic landscape of the country.

False Flag Attacks By Zionists Against Fellow Jews

Jewish leaders talking up the threat of “anti-Semitism” in order to induce Jews to immigrate to Israel is of course not new. Such talk emanating in the immediate aftermath of what appear to have been false flag attacks by Zionists against fellow Jews–this also is not new.

...

At the time in question, the early 1950s, Israel was ethnically cleansing the Ashkelon area and forcing Palestinians who lived there into the Gaza Strip. Farms were indeed taken over, and so, yes, there was a need for cheap labor, and Jews from Iraq provided a good source. And to make sure that the new arrivals were wholly dependent upon their earnings as laborers, Israel saw to it that they were forced, for the most part, to leave their property and possessions behind in Iraq.

Astonishing List of 71 Top Bankers Dead and No Natural Causes!

I've recently stumbled across a list of top bankers that have been killed in cold blood, died in "accidents" or have allegedly committed suicide. In some of the cases, their deaths are so suspicious that the 'suicide' verdict is simply ridiculous, as you will see.

While searching for news reports documenting their deaths, I've managed to find a lot more cases of high ranking bankers that have been found dead in suspect circumstances. I've added the cases to the list and included the appropriate reference links.

What are we to make of this sudden rash of banker suicides? Does this trail of dead bankers lead somewhere? Or could it be just a coincidence that so many bankers have died in such close proximity? I will be perfectly honest and admit that I do not know what is going on. But there are some common themes that seem to link at least some of these deaths together. First of all, most of these men were in good health and in their prime working years.

Good Morning America, Bibi is Coming to Town

“Do not seek the treasure. Its an ambush.”

In attendance, assuming the Prime Minister actually goes through with what has become a highly controversial and increasingly unpopular speech.

Even strong pro-Israel outlets like Fox News, and Liberal Zionist media outlets like MSNBC, are urging Netanyahu to cancel his March 3 moment in the world media spotlight.

The decision by members of Congress to attend, or not to attend, Netanyahu’s speech March 3 is a test of loyalty for members, to their elected president or to the Sheldon Adelson-controlled prime minister of Israel.That is a political decision.It is also a personal moral decision.

GMOs found growing in South Korea despite national ban

More unapproved -- and in some cases, unidentifiable -- genetically modified (GM) plants are turning up in places where they shouldn't be. South Korea, which currently prohibits the cultivation of all GM crops anywhere in the country, is becoming beleaguered with wild GMO strains, according to new reports.

The transgenic plants are popping up all along seed delivery routes, near animal feeding operations and in various other locations throughout the country, threatening to disrupt local ecosystems. Despite a nationwide ban on their cultivation, GMOs are still making their way into South Korea in the form of feed for cattle, which is falling off the wagon -- quite literally -- and spreading genetic pollution.

Or it is intentional contamination to force South Korea to abandon the ban.

Truth first casualty of climate wars

Why is it that when politicians make basic science mistakes in support of the hypothesis of dangerous human-caused global warming, no government agency or university representative corrects them?

It is not as if such errors are rare; they happen all the time.

For example, climate modellers correctly label their speculations of future temperatures as “projections”, meaning that they have no validated forecast skill.

Yet lawmakers treat the models as providing forecasts or predictions.

Because this misusage is never corrected, our leaders get away with basing expensive public policy on misinformation.

Ukraine Agrees To Monsanto Land Grab For $17 Billion IMF Loan

Monsanto has an office in Ukraine. While this does not shout ‘culpability’ from every corner, it is no different than the US military’s habit to place bases in places that they want to gain political control. The opening of this office coincided with land grabs with loans from the IMF and World Bank to one of the world’s most hated corporations – all in support of their biotech takeover.

Previously, there was a ban on private sector land ownership in the country – but it was lifted ‘just in time’ for Monsanto to have its way with the Ukraine.

Teenage astronomer aims for the stars

Jonah Scott still remembers the moment he fell in love with space.

"I got my first telescope when I was 15," he said.

"I took it outside and thought I'd look at all the brightest stars I could see.

"I focused on one star and I couldn't quite make out why it was different. All the other stars were dots, but it wasn't.

"And then it dawned on me that the reason it wasn't a dot was it had rings around it."

It was the planet Saturn.

"I never knew that I could see Saturn's rings with my own eyes," Jonah said.

Sorry Monsanto: Organic Food Demand is Absolutely Exploding

Perhaps you remember a time not too far in our collective grocery-shopping past when regular grocery stores chains and places like Walmart had no idea what organic food was. Organic milk? Bread? Produce? They didn’t carry it. You had to find an obscure health food store or a farmer’s market if you didn’t live near a Whole Foods to find non-GMO, healthful food that wasn’t full of pesticides. But thankfully, consumers are demanding different products now. Demand for organic food has busted through its glass ceiling.

You can attribute this change in market demand to education. You can attribute it to the mass awakening happening around the planet. But either way, you can’t argue with the numbers. Eating organic is no longer ‘fringe’ or something done solely by health-nuts and athletes, hippies, and paranoids. In fact, consumer demand for organic food is seeing double digit growth year over year, and it doesn’t show signs of stopping.

"Cooling Off" Law Proposed To Keep Police Officers’ Names Secret For 90 Days After Shootings

Law enforcement agencies would be permitted to withhold names of officers involved in shootings for 90 days after incidences of deadly force.

Hedge fund manager faked death to avoid redemptions: SEC

A New York hedge fund manager who was running an alleged fraud went to great lengths to avoid giving investors their money back, including telling an investor he had died of a heart attack, the authorities said on Friday. Moazzam "Mark" Malik, 33, stole close to $850,000 dollars from 16 foreign and domestic investors starting in 2011, according to a Securities and Exchange Commission complaint released Friday.

Ron Paul: Ukraine Coup Planned By Nato And EU

As Ron Paul recently exclaimed, the war propagandists are very active and are winning over the support of many unsuspecting American citizens. So we thought the followingg 90 seconds of 'pure Paul' would provide a refreshingly different perspective as he explains, "I'm not pro-Russia, I'm not pro-Putin, I'm pro-facts." And with the US government having no more credibility in telling us the truth about the facts that require us to expand our military presence in this region - and many others - than Brian William; perhaps it is time to listen.

About 16 million mobile devices are infected by malicious software that is secretly spying on users, stealing confidential information and pilfering data plans.

That’s the word from Alcatel-Lucent’s Motive Security Labs, which in a study found that malware infections in mobile devices rose a full 25% in 2014, compared to a 20% increase in 2013. In fact, the uptick is so spectacular that Android devices have now caught up with Windows laptops, which had been the primary workhorse of cybercrime, with infection rates between Android and Windows devices split an even 50/50 in 2014.

Venezuela president accuses U.S. government of plotting to blow up presidential palace in attempted coup

On Thursday, the South American country arrested a retired air force general and 13 other people who were allegedly trying to overthrow the socialist government.

In a statement which has been dismissed by American officials as 'ridiculous', Maduro addressed national television to accuse the United States of trying to curry favor with the revolutionaries.

'It is the government of the United States that is behind the plans of destabilization and coups against Venezuela. I have come here to denounce it,' Maduro said in a televised address on Thursday.

'We have dismantled a coup attempt against democracy, against the stability of our homeland.

'It was an attempt to use a group of officials from the air force to provoke a violent act, an attack.'

Cameron and the toxic tax-avoiding super-rich

The common thread in all this is that there seems to be one law for the rich (do not pay tax) and another for the poor (pay every penny in taxation) – a trend that, if it continues, will threaten social cohesion in Britain.

One thing is certain: it is the Tories and David Cameron (who presumably authorised that insane winter ball) who will be the biggest losers of this glaring injustice.

The fact is that, for all their undoubted strengths, Mr Cameron and Mr Osborne, both scions of wealth, have never fully understood the fully justified rage of millions of ordinary Britons at the growing wealth gap fuelled by tax avoidance.

FBI informant busted in Key West cops to charges, tries to explain actions

A child rapist turned FBI informant who was arrested in Key West for fraudulent use of a credit card and failing to register as a sex offender has struck a plea deal with Monroe County prosecutors.

Robert Childs, 39, has been out of jail and back on the streets of Key West since Jan. 28. Florida Department of Law Enforcement records show he has a temporary address at the Keys Overnight Temporary Shelter on College Road in Stock Island.

Childs pleaded guilty on Jan. 27 to fraudulent use of a credit card and no contest to failing to register as a sex offender. As part of the plea agreement, County Judge Wayne Miller issued an order finding that Childs is a sexual predator -- a designation that requires conviction of a felony sex crime involving a minor.

The Pentagon's massive $534 billion budget request could force deep cuts elsewhere

The Pentagon decision to seek a 2016 budget that far exceeds federal spending caps poses the risk of a big across-the-board funding cut like the one that forced the department to put civilian workers on unpaid leave two years ago.

But defense officials say the department will not repeat some of the decisions it made in 2013 that exacerbated the problem once the automatic cuts, known as "sequestration," went into effect nearly halfway through the fiscal year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This kind of spending requested by the Pentagon can only mean one thing: they have been informed that they will be fighting in perpetual wars which will see no end in the lifetime of the Pentagon officials requesting this money.

Update of Minsk Peace Deal — Paul Craig Roberts

In my last column I provided reasons for believing that the deal will fail. I saw a larger downside for Russia and the Donetsk and Luhansk republics because Putin and the break-away provinces will be blamed. English is the world language, and this enables Washington and its presstitutes to control the explanation.

The Saker and I are in agreement that the provisions of the peace deal are ridiculous and cannot and will not be implemented. However, The Saker sees an advantage for the republics in the provision, if implemented, to remove heavy weapons from the conflict zones. The Saker’s viewpoint is worth knowing. Whereas I have stressed that the conflict could be ended by Russia accepting the republics’ requests for unification with Russia and that the longer the conflict is drawn out the more the West can demonize Putin and the break-away republics, Saker sees the conflict ending this year with the economic, military, and political collapse of Ukraine.

Escalation: US Sending Over 4,000 Ground Troops to Kuwait

President Obama hasn’t gotten approval for his “intentionally vague” Authorization for the Use of Military Force (AUMF) against ISIS, but the Pentagon is already scrambling to escalate its military presence in the region in preparation of the ground war it would start.

Over 4,000 ground combat troops from Fort Carson’s 3rd Brigade are being sent to Kuwait under this new deployment, where they will make up the region’s largest collection of US ground troops, which will include heavy armored vehicles.

Even as President Obama continues to deny plans for a ground war, it’s not a secret what the troops are being sent to Kuwait for, and officials say they’re prepared for “any contingency,” which in this context means a fight with ISIS.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF Obama does not get the Congressional Authorization for a use of force, he will do what he wants with one, or several Executive Orders.

It is a fascinating component to his personality, as a former lecturer on Constitutional Law, to see that he believes, as President, he is absolutely and utterly above the law.

Extrajudicial assassinations in foreign countries? No problem! The sending of forces to the Middle East to project US military power and ultimately engage in ground combat without Congressional approval?!? No problem! To surveille everything everyone says or writes in a blog to determine if they are a "threat potential"? No problem!!

He just did the last one yesterday, via Executive Order.

As reported yesterday in zerohedge.com:

Here come the "information sharing and analysis organizations", or ISAOs. * * * In the aftermath of the Snowden whistleblowing scandal which has now all but been forgotten, there was a brief period when it seemed the growth of the US spying apparatus would be halted if not put into reverse. Those days are long forgotten and later today Obama is expected to to sign an executive order "that aims to make it easier for the government to share classified cyberthreat information with companies." The spin, as proposed by the WSJ, is that "this will be effort designed to spur collaboration and deter hackers, the White House said." In reality what Obama's latest executive order will do, is expand the universe of entities that has access to the trove of private confidential data contained in the vast government spying apparatus, which as has been made all too clear now focuses as much on US citizens as it does on legitimate foreign threats, and further eviscerate the concept of individual privacy in the US. From Reuters: The order sets the stage for new private-sector led "information sharing and analysis organizations" (ISAOs) - hubs where companies share cyber threat data with each other and with the Department of Homeland Security

Israel Slams Diplomacy, Threatens to Attack Iran

The Israeli Minister of Strategic Affairs is a position initially created in 2006 to give hawkish Avigdor Lieberman a position of nominal foreign policy. The portfolio’s role is simply to threaten Iran on a regular basis. Current Minister Yuval Steinitz takes that job very seriously.

On Thursday, Steinitz warned Israel could unilaterally attack Iran at any time, with no warning at all, and would consider it “self defense” because they consider the ongoing nuclear negotiations a failure.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Avigdor Lieberman: there is something called a "cost/benefit" ratio to any military offensive.

And I would like to assure you that, geopolitically, militarily, and economically, the cost of such an attack for Israel will far outweigh the benefits. The massive international sanctions which would result from such an unprovoked attack would put the Israeli economic into a complete downward spiral from which the country might never recover.

Remember, sir: Iran has not started a war in over 200 years; the same certainly could not be said with a straight face about Israel!

As ticked off as Obama is about Netanyahu coming to lecture both Houses of Congress on 3 March about Iran, he may well decide that if Israel attacks Iran, the US military will sit this one out; and then, where are you?!?

And it appears that you didn't get the memo about Russia and Iran signing a mutual defense accord, earlier this year. War with Russia, sir?!?!? I would not imagine that this is the outcome you would want for such an attack.

Please tell us, sir: would you attack Iran, knowing that one of the oldest, continually practicing Jewish communities lives here?!? Are you really ready to commit genocide against your own Jewish brothers and sisters?!?

I would therefore strongly caution you, the Knesset, and the IDF to be very careful about what you wish for as an outcome from such an attack; the unexpected consequences may be both horrific...and irreversible.

Republicans seize on HSBC scandal to hold up Loretta Lynch's confirmation

Senate Republicans are seizing on the global tax scandal engulfing HSBC to delay the confirmation of Loretta Lynch, Barack Obama’s nominee for attorney general, the Guardian can reveal.

The Republican chairman of the Senate judiciary committee, Chuck Grassley, was on Friday preparing a fresh tranche of questions for Lynch about the huge cache of leaked data showing how HSBC’s subsidiary helped conceal billions of dollars from domestic tax authorities.
HSBC could yet be prosecuted over tax-dodging scheme, warns Loretta Lynch
Obama’s nominee for attorney general negotiated a deal with HSBC two years ago that saw it avoid criminal charges but Lynch says DoJ still has powers to act.

Grassley and another Republican senator are planning to investigate whether Lynch could have done more to stand up to the world’s second largest bank.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The questions Republicans are bringing up are fully legitimate, and whoever vetted Loretta Lynch should have known that these issues would come up during the process of confirmation.

How deeply Ms. Lynch is, herself, mired in this controversy, is not something which should have been discovered so late in the process, and Democrats have only themselves to blame for not taking a closer look at this earlier.

Americans want someone in this very high position who will justly administer the laws, not bend them for the sake of the very well positioned.

But of course, Eric Holder himself has played fast and loose with the law, in terms of APgate surveillance; IRSgate; his persecution of James Rosen; the Marc Rich Pardon; Fast and Furious; and his position against 2nd Amendment Rights.

It is obvious, with the "baggage" Ms. Lynch carries, that this White House wants someone who "followed in Holder's footsteps" in terms of potential comfort with corruption on the biggest possible scale, and the outcomes of Ms. Lynch's tenure as the Attorney General, should she get confirmed, would most probably be more of the same.

Fighting Rages In Ukraine As Cease-Fire Deadline Approaches

Heavy artillery fire roared Saturday in eastern Ukraine as fighting between Ukrainian forces and Russia-backed separatists continued hours before a cease-fire was to take effect in the conflict that has killed more than 5,300 people.

Associated Press reporters saw the artillery barrage near the town of Svitlodarsk as well as considerable movement of Ukrainian forces' armored vehicles and rocket launchers along the road.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"...Russian-backed separatists?!?!?!?

What is the level or degree of alleged "Russian backing" which can be proved?!? The short answer is, none.

However, we can state, with some degree of security, that the following, as reported at ronpaulinstitute.org, 23 January 2015,, is true.

There appears to be a problem, however. The 9,000 troops and heavy weapons and equipment that purportedly accompanies them have been seen by no one. There are no satellite photos of what would certainly be a plainly visible incursion. We know from incredibly detailed satellite photos of Boko Haram's recent massacre in Nigeria that producing evidence of such large scale movement is entirely within the realm of US and NATO technological capabilities. Still there remains a lack of evidence. Additionally, the US announced it was transferring heavy military equipment to the Ukrainian armed forces, including the Kozak mine-resistant personnel carrier and some 35 other armored trucks. The US government has reportedly set aside several million dollars to help train the Ukrainian national guard. Considering the fact that the national guard was only re-formed after last year's US-backed coup and is made up in large part of neo-Nazis from the extremist Right Sector, one would hope some of the money is spent dissuading members from such an odious ideology. So there may well be Russian troops and equipment on the ground in Ukraine -- though so far no proof exists and the Russians deny it. But we know very well that there are US troops and heavy military equipment on the ground in Ukraine because the US openly admits it! So Russia has no business claiming interest in unrest on its doorstep, but the US has every right to become militarily involved in a conflict which has nothing to do with us nearly 5,000 miles away? Interventionist illogic.

I frankly do no hold out much hope for this ceasefire to hold; there are, unfortunately, too many people who want, for whatever economic and geopolitical reasons, for this war to move forward.

I shudder to think of the outcome of a hot, shooting war between the US and Russia; but I believe that thinking individuals need to prepare themselves, and those they love, for such a war to come.

I hope to hell I am wrong; unfortunately, barring a miracle, the facts on the ground, right now, indicate that this may well be the case.

ISIL has yet to reach Baghdad – so why posit they’re on their way to Baltimore?

he President is paving the way for his successor, who he hopes will be one Hillary Rodham Clinton, and whose foreign policy principles are a bit more openly hawkish than his own.

US Navy ships look to establish Darwin military base, but China won't be happy, warns expert

American warships could be stationed permanently in Darwin as part of the United States military's strategic plan in the region, but an expert warns that will not sit well with China.

US chief of navy operations, Admiral Jonathan Greenert, said the US was considering having a permanent naval base in Australia.

Admiral Greenert recently visited Darwin to inspect facilities and infrastructure which could allow US warships to be based in the Top End.

At an address in Canberra this week Admiral Greenert said the US was "doing a study together with the Australian Defence Force to see what might be feasible for naval co-operation in and around Australia, which might include basing ships".

Australian National University (ANU) Senior Fellow Peter Dean said such a move would be part of the US plan for Asia and would add to the existing US Marine Corps presence in Darwin.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It will be interesting to see how much pressure, both overt and covert, that China will bring to bear on Canberra to prevent this from happening.

Why the IRS Apology for Asset Seizure is Meaningless

Joe Wright
Activist Post

Despite the IRS apologizing for seizing the bank accounts of small business owners on mere suspicion of wrongdoing, Judge Andrew Napolitano highlights how this practice began in the first place and why it's likely to continue regardless of political posturing.

The culprit, he asserts, is a Congress that has enacted legislation in direct contradiction to the Constitution, enabling the IRS to operate with minimal restraint, empty oversight, and a complete reversal of American principles...

How Stupid Do They Think We Are?

Newsweek magazine headlined on February 5th, “‘Biggest NATO Reinforcement Since Cold War’ Sets Frontlines Against Russia,” and reported that, “According to general Charles Wald, former-deputy commander of U.S. European Command, … ‘The question for Europe is: is Putin creeping further and further west?’” Wald is quoted as saying that the case of Ukraine especially worries him. This article continues: “‘Is this a precursor to Russia moving into Moldova? Nagorno Karabakh has been bubbling up, and the Georgia issue is still unresolved. NATO has essentially set these [new military] bases in its frontline states,’ Wald says, referring to the countries’ proximity to Russian territory.” So: Russia is moving too close to NATO countries, according to the U.S. ‘Defense’ Department.

US ‘helped Israel build hydrogen bomb’: declassified report

US Confirmed Existence of Israeli H-Bomb Program in 1987

The 1987 report’s confirmation of Israel’s advanced nuclear weapons program should have immediately triggered a cutoff in all U.S. aid to Israel under the Symington and Glenn Amendments to the US Foreign Assistance Act of 1961. Although 100 copies of the tightly-controlled report were apparently published, none seem to have made their way into the office of the President in time to cut off any of the $82 billion in aid subsequently delivered to Israel – or publicly issue the required waivers.

British politicians mull censorship of anti-Israel comments

Following the Charlie Hebdo attack and related killings, we saw continental European law enforcement agencies confirming that “freedom of speech” is a white liberal privilege, not a universal right.

With Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu brazenly claiming all Jewish victims as his own and cashing in on the attacks for blatant propaganda purposes, the French political elite signalled that the tragic events may be used as an excuse to crack down on criticism of Israel.

Now, it seems, British parliamentarians could go down the same road by considering bans on critical discourse while basing their criteria on extremely shaky definitions.

Top tech CEOs snub Obama at cybersecurity summit

The leaders of three of the nation’s leading tech companies won’t attend a White House cybersecurity summit in California on Friday, according to media reports.

Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer, Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Google executives Larry Page and Eric Schmidt will not attend the event, which will be held at Stanford University.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am hardly surprised. The revelation of the NSA's backdoors has shaved billions from the profits of their companies and their personal fortunes. Being seen to cooperate will only make matters worse.

BEX ALERT - 'Just wait…' Islamic State reveals it has smuggled THOUSANDS of extremists into Europe

The Islamic State operative spoke exclusively to BuzzFeed on the condition of anonymity and is believed to be the first to confirm plans to infiltrate western countries.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, one anonymous guy feeds this story to the media and they run with it as if it is the gospel truth. With the Brian William fiasco and now France about to sue FOX News over the "Muslim No-go" story, you would think the corporate media would remember that VERIFYING THE FACTS is supposed to be part of the process!

UK dispatches troop carriers to Ukraine

Britain has delivered a number of troop transporters to Ukraine as fighting rages on unabated in the eastern parts of the former Soviet country despite a peace deal.

Ukrainian media reported on Friday that 20 British Saxon armored vehicles were handed in to Kiev, with another 55 expected to arrive soon.

The UK’s Ministry of Defense (MoD) said that the vehicles were transferred by a private firm under a 2013 deal with the eastern European country.

War for Some, Profits for Poroshenko

Over the course of the last year, while Ukraine bled and grew poor, Poroshenko’s firm Roshen increased its profits by a factor of 9!

This is complete nonsense. An economic miracle! It is hard to believe, but the confectionary firm Roshen which belongs to President Poroshenko increased its profits by a factor of 9, to 34.8 million hryvnya.

At the same time Ukraine’s economy is in pre-default state. The country’s gold and hard currency reserves had shrunk to an absolute minimum, from 20 billion to 7 billion dollars. Hryvnya devalued sharply, from 8 to 20 hryvnya to a dollar (up to 30 on the inter-bank exchange). Salaries and pensions have been frozen, utility payments went way up. Everything is collapsing. Only the president’s personal business is flourishing.

Don’t you think it’s strange?

Those must be damned fine chocolates!!!!!

Peace over war?

On Sunday at zero-hundred hours the negotiated ceasefire halting Ukraine’s civil war comes into effect. Is this a major diplomatic breakthrough that all parties involved in can be proud of? Or is the ceasefire merely a lull for the Kiev government to regroup? And what about Washington’s reaction?

Greek rebellion greeted by left and right as 'kick in the ass' for Euro elites

Angela Merkel's insistence that austerity economics must be implemented to the letter across swathes of Europe is creating a most lethal form of risk - political risk. It threatens not just the political systems and office holders of those countries that earn her displeasure. It threatens the holders of investment capital as well.
