Rand Paul's Laughable 'Blogger Action Network': Zionist, Pro-Israel, Pro-Netanyahu, scared of Iran & Muslim Extremism

Rand's latest approved blogger warns ""Radical Islam is a threat to our way of life. We need to understand the world from its perspective to combat it." Rand's other blogger ironically has a front-page story supporting Ted Cruz for president, and stresses "what an important ally Israel is to the USA." If this is the best Randy can do, his laughable (albeit entertaining) campaign is in deep trouble. RandPaulZionist.com has the latest.

'I felt like I was on fire' - diet pill 'imminent threat' to those that take it

Global police forces are working together to try to prevent the supply of so-called "diet pills" which can be deadly.

In April 21-year-old Eloise Aimee Parry, from Shrewsbury, died in hospital on 12 April after becoming unwell after she took a substance she had bought on the internet.

An inquest found that she had consumed four times the fatal amount of Dinitrophenol, known as DNP, which is a toxic pesticide.

The International Criminal Police Organisation (Interpol) has now raised an alert with forces in 190 countries.

They declared an "imminent threat" to consumers of DNP, which has also been used in explosives.

US-Coordinated Saudi Bombers Using Banned, US-Made Cluster Bombs In Yemen

US-coordinated and assisted Wahhabi bombings using cluster and other weapons “have been hitting areas near villages” HRW said, adding that cluster bombs:

…should never be used under any circumstances. Saudi Arabia and other coalition members – and the supplier, the US – are flouting the global standard that rejects cluster munitions because of their long-term threat to civilians.

Violating international norms, Obama shipped the Sharia dictatorship almost 1 billion dollars worth of banned cluster bombs in August, 2013:

Donetsk Republic Nationalizes Banks, Draws Ire Of NATO and World Banking Cartel

By Brandon Turbeville

In a tiny corner of Eastern Europe, a fledgling Republic struggling with the day-to-day hurdles of warfare and shaky ceasefires, has succeeded in doing what has long been overdue in the most powerful nation on the face of the earth – it has nationalized its out-of-control banks and put them to use for the good of the people...

The Baltimore Riots: Where The State Is The Insurgency

Things are moving pretty fast in Baltimore. Three weeks ago Baltimore was just another American city, bustling beneath the radar of national attention. Freddie Gray died in police custody on April 12, and here we are in the first days of May and we’ve already witnessed riots, the swift arrest of six Baltimore police officers, and a triumphant victory rally.

There are still so many unanswered questions and conflicting information regarding the death of Freddie Gray that I find this topic very hard to write about. I’m not one who likes to eat crow unless I have to, so I won’t be discussing the actual incident. However, there is no shortage of people who apparently have no problem organizing, demanding, rioting, assaulting, and burning buildings without the necessary information.

Read My Lips : No New Carbon

In 1988. Hansen laid out three global warming scenarios. Scenario C assumed that no new CO2 was put in the atmosphere after the year 2000.

We are 15 years past that date, and atmospheric temperatures are below Scenario C. Temperatures are below what Hansen predicted would occur with no new CO2.

Hansen’s theory is dead. The science is settled. Time to bring this scam to an end.

Mars needs TRAFFIC COP to stop probe prangs, says NASA

NASA has “beefed up” the processes it uses to stop orbiters around Mars from colliding with each other, after two orbiters came within two kilometres of each other in early January.

Humanity currently has five live orbiters around the red planet, namely NASA's MAVEN, Mars Odyssey and the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO), plus India's Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM) and the European Space Agency's Mars Express. NASA's Mars Global Surveyor is bricked but is still in orbit.

Samples of Israel's Horrific Brutality and War Criminality in Gaza

The Israeli group Breaking the Silence issued a report this morning containing testimony from Israeli soldiers about the savagery and criminality committed by the Israeli military during the attack on Gaza last summer. The Independent has a good article describing the report’s findings: “The Israeli military deliberately pounded civilian areas in the Gaza Strip with incessant fire of inaccurate ordinance” and “was at best indifferent about casualties among the Palestinian population.” At best.

This should surprise nobody who paid any attention to the brutal Israeli destruction of Gaza or, for that matter, countless Israeli attacks before that. The U.N. has said that 7 out of 10 people killed by the Israelis were civilians, “including 1,462 civilians, among them 495 children and 253 women”; video of Israelis killing four Gazan boys as they played on a beach sickened anyone decent.

Garland, Texas Is a Hotbed for Anti-Muslim Bigotry

There are many unanswered questions about the shooting, and we don't know much about the identity of the perpetrators or their motivations.

But the narrative that is being told about the events is incomplete. Geller is being portrayed as an advocate of free speech, who was holding a Muhammad cartoon contest that was simply about affirming First Amendment principles. This is simply not the case.

Geller is not a “critic of Islam,” as the Los Angeles Times wrote last night. Her goal is to cleanse the Western world of Muslims in much the same manner Slobodan Milosevic wanted to cleanse the Balkans of its Muslim population.

Israel’s systematic discrimination against blacks

Ramallah: The Ethiopian community and other black Israelis have been discriminated against and brutalized for years, according to Palestinian political analysts.

“Various methods of discrimination against Ethiopians and blacks in general is manifested even in the smallest of government procedures,” said Ghassan Al Khatib, a political analyst in Ramallah.

Tens of thousands of Ethiopian Jews were flown to Israel from Africa decades ago when famine threatened their communities. This group is now over 100,000 in size and regularly complains of discrimination. More than half of Ethiopian-Israelis live in poverty.

The recent protests, including Sunday’s violent protest in Tel Aviv, were provoked by a police assault on a black Israeli soldier.

Don't be fooled by Pamela Geller

So why did Geller claim that the attackers represent large numbers of American Muslims — as she puts it, "your everyday, run of the mill moderates praising mind-numbing savagery" — although her only evidence for that are a few Twitter accounts linked to ISIS, one of which may have belonged to one of the attackers, and none of which represent any American Muslims?

It's not as though Geller ever lets facts get in the way of a good opportunity: After the attack, she didn't call for dialogue, for understanding, for bringing people together, which is what real leaders do.

Instead, she went on Fox news and called it a war. And that appears to be what she wants. That's why she's dangerous, not brave. She's not celebrating hate speech for the sake of free speech, but to provoke reactions that polarize America, set people at odds, and alienate Muslims, who are American citizens and often first in line to report planned terrorist attacks. (American Muslims are allies, not enemies.)

US-Dominated NATO Readying for War on Russia?

Mounting evidence should scare everyone - especially with neocon lunatics in Washington driving policymaking.

They deplore peace. They demand endless wars against all nations not subservient to America's will - puppet vassal states serving US interests, letting their resources be plundered for profit.

Russia and China are prime targets - the only nations able to challenge America militarily, economically, and/or politically.

Washington pressuring Japan and other Asian nations against China shows what Beijing faces. So does America's planned increased regional military presence.

Growing numbers of US combat troops close to Russia's borders reflect confrontation waiting to happen - between the world's preeminent nuclear states risks the unthinkable.

The Surveillance Engine: How the NSA Built Its Own Secret Google

The National Security Agency is secretly providing data to nearly two dozen U.S. government agencies with a “Google-like” search engine built to share more than 850 billion records about phone calls, emails, cellphone locations, and internet chats, according to classified documents obtained by The Intercept.

The documents provide the first definitive evidence that the NSA has for years made massive amounts of surveillance data directly accessible to domestic law enforcement agencies. Planning documents for ICREACH, as the search engine is called, cite the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Drug Enforcement Administration as key participants.

ICREACH contains information on the private communications of foreigners and, it appears, millions of records on American citizens who have not been accused of any wrongdoing. Details about its existence are contained in the archive of materials provided to The Intercept by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden.

Scott Walker Says He Would Crush What’s Left Of Unions If Elected President

Though he has yet to officially declare his bid for president, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is frequenting early primary states and hinting at what he would do if elected to the White House. In a recent interview with Radio Iowa, Walker said he would champion a federal version of the controversial ‘right-to-work’ law he signed earlier this year.

“As much as I think the federal government should get out of most of what it’s in right now, I think establishing fundamental freedoms for the American people is a legitimate thing and that would be something that would provide that opportunity in the other half of America to people who don’t have those opportunities today,” he said.

Unique historic color video shows Berlin just 2 months after WWII

New footage has emerged of Berlin in the aftermath of World War II. The video, filmed in July 1945, shows famous landmarks like the Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag in ruins as ordinary citizens try to go about their everyday lives.

The video, shot around two months after the city fell in 1945, shows the utter destruction the German capital underwent during WWII. Berlin had already been divided into four zones by the Allied powers, and signs in Russian had already begun to be erected in the Soviet sphere of influence.

CFR Says China Must Be Defeated, & TPP Is Essential to That

Wall Street’s Council on Foreign Relations has issued a major report, alleging that China must be defeated because it threatens to become a bigger power in the world than the U.S.

This report, which is titled “Revising U.S. Grand Strategy Toward China,” is introduced by Richard Haass, the CFR’s President, who affirms the report’s view that, “no relationship will matter more when it comes to defining the twenty-first century than the one between the United States and China.” He says that the report he is publishing argues that “strategic rivalry is highly likely if not inevitable between the existing major power of the day and the principal rising power.” Haass says that the authors “also argue that China has not evolved into the ‘responsible stakeholder’ that many in the United States hoped it would.” In other words: “cooperation” with China will probably need to become replaced by, as the report’s authors put it, “intense U.S.-China strategic competition.”

Baltimore Received $1.8 Billion from Obama’s Stimulus Law

The city of Baltimore received over $1.8 billion from President Barack Obama’s stimulus law, including $467.1 million to invest in education and $26.5 million for crime prevention.

President Obama claimed last Tuesday that if the Republican-controlled Congress would implement his policies to make “massive investments in urban communities,” they could “make a difference right now” in the city, currently in upheaval following the death of Freddie Gray.

However, a Washington Free Beacon analysis found that the Obama administration and Democratically-controlled Congress did make a “massive” investment into Baltimore, appropriating $1,831,768,487 though the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), commonly known as the stimulus.

Why the Latest Protest Against Police Brutality Is Happening in Israel

TIME: Masses of protesters gathering in the streets, some throwing rocks and bottles at the police. In full riot gear, the police respond in force, shooting tear-gas canisters, percussion bombs and water guns. By the end of the evening, 46 injured people are sent to area hospitals.

Scenes of violent protest are something that people in Israel are used to seeing periodically, though it is usually in the context of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. This time, though, the rage involves youth Israelis of Ethiopian descent who are angry at their own government.

Bearing witness ever more

ACROSS the globe, schoolchildren study the industrialised slaughter of Jews by the Nazis. Holocaust museums in America, Israel and Poland each draw more than a million visitors annually. The UN has passed two resolutions in the past decade to institutionalise memory of the Holocaust worldwide. Yad Vashem, an Israeli museum and remembrance authority, trains 10,000 domestic and foreign teachers every year. “Interest is growing immensely,” says Dorit Novak, the director-general. Membership of the Association of Holocaust Organisations (AHO) has increased from 25 in the late 1980s to over 300. Commemorative museums have opened from Germany and France to Brazil and Japan. Of the 16,000 books on the Holocaust listed in America’s Library of Congress, more than two-thirds were published in the past two decades.

France, Saudi Arabia: Iran nuclear deal must be verifiable, no threat to region

France and Saudi Arabia believe that any future nuclear accord between Iran and six major powers must be robust, verifiable and no threat to Tehran's neighbours, the two countries said ahead of a summit in Riyadh on Tuesday.

Saudi Arabia invited French President Francois Hollande, whose country is deemed to have the toughest stance among the six world powers negotiating with Iran, to Riyadh to discuss regional issues with Gulf Arab leaders who fear a rapprochement with Tehran could further inflame the region.

"France and Saudi Arabia confirmed the necessity to reach a robust, lasting, verifiable, undisputed and binding deal with Iran," Hollande and the new Saudi King Salman said in a statement after meeting on Monday.

"This agreement must not destabilise the security and stability of the region nor threaten the security and stability of Iran's neighbours," the statement said.

Israel's dark future

In June 1967, Israel won a stunning military victory against its neighbors, elating Israelis and the global Jewish community with a sense that the grand experiment of a Jewish state might really work. Three weeks later, amid Israel's national euphoria, the country's founding prime minister emerged from retirement to warn Israelis that they had sown the seeds of national self-destruction. David Ben-Gurion, 81 years old, insisted that Israel, which had conquered the Palestinian territories of Gaza and the West Bank in the war, must immediately give them up. If they did not, he said, this act of forcible occupation would corrupt the Jewish state and possibly destroy it outright. His speech was barely covered in the Israeli press and widely ignored by Israelis. The Palestinians have lived under Israeli occupation now for 48 years.

"While the Conservatives are staging events closed to all but a carefully vetted audience, a large number of which came from outside Bath, the protesters were holding him to account over his ideological attack on the welfare state and destruction of our NHS."

More importantly, we can also confirm Simpson was being handled by an FBI informant. Court papers filed in Arizona name the FBI undercover informant as Mr. Daba Deng, a Kenyan and who, from 2007, was paid $132,000 by the FBI to “become friends with Mr. Simpson”, and who appears to have groomed Simpson through a local mosque, and helped to develop Simpson’s ideas about “jihad”. Deng also helped to catch ‘Islamic convert’ Simpson on tape saying he wanted to travel to Somalia to join the terror orgaization al Shabaab. Thar recording was made on May 29, 2009, which shows Simpson telling his handler Deng, “It’s time to go to Somalia, brother… we gonna make it to the battlefield… it’s time to roll.” This recording was the basis for Simpson’s later FBI arrest, after which time he was ‘let off’ with 3 years probation.

US telecoms try to kill net neutrality by blocking key rules

The big US telecoms are trying every trick in the book to kill net neutrality, and that includes some very specific tactics. AT&T, CenturyLink and multiple industry groups havesent filings to the FCC asking it to block specific procedures, not the neutrality rules themselves. They want to stop the Commission from both reclassifying the internet as a utility and implementing a standard that prevents providers from "unreasonably interfering" with your internet access. Purportedly, these moves would require "crushing" costs and might chill investments in network upgrades -- arguments we've definitely heard before.

World's first anti-propaganda search engine launching soon that favors Independent Media while banning government and corporate disinfo

For the last six months, I have been working hard on the development of a breakthrough search engine that will finally offer a credible search alternative to the NSA-funded, surveillance-state search engines currently dominating the web.

Next week, I'll be opening the webmaster URL submit page for the world's first independent, anti-propaganda search engine that filters out corporate propaganda and government disinformation. The search engine is free to submit to and free to use. It's funded entirely by advertising that appears on the search results page.

Uniquely, this independent search engine either bans or flags (with a warning) all corporate propaganda and government disinfo websites. Just as Google flags search result URLs containing malicious code that can infect your computer, we will flag search result URLs containing malicious propaganda that can infect your mind.

Why Scientific American's Predictions from 10 Years Ago Were So Wrong

Recently, we did an experiment: We took an outdated issue of a respected popular science magazine, Scientific American, and researched exactly what happened to the highly-touted breakthroughs of the era that would supposedly change everything. What we discovered is just how terrible we are at predicting the long arc of scientific discovery.

The daily churn of science news tends toward optimism. You know what I’m talking about: New cure! New breakthrough smashing Moore’s law! New revolutionary technology! I write about science, and I am always uncomfortable trying to predict how a new piece of research will change the future.

That’s because science can be wrong. It can go down dead ends. And even when it doesn’t, almost everything is more complicated and takes longer than we initially think. But just how wrong and how long?

COINTELPRO: The Sabotage Of Legitimate Dissent

GREAT MOMENTS IN THE HISTORY OF THE FBI.

"[Your information is] too precise, too complete to be believed. The questionnaire plus the other information you brought spell out in detail exactly where, when, how, and by whom we are to be attacked. If anything, it sounds like a trap."

FBI response to the top British spy, Dusko Popov (code named "Tricycle") on August 10, 1941, dismissing Popov's report of the complete Japanese plan for the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Pearl Harbor: The Verdict Of History by Gordon Prange, appendix 7 published in 1986. Based on records from the JOINT CONGRESSIONAL COMMITTEE on the Investigation of the Pearl Harbor Attack, Nov 15, 1945 to May 31, 1946.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As we see the blacks pitted against the whites, gays against straights, men against women, and so forth, it is important to remember that these social schisms are engineered by the government in a divide-and-conquer strategy to keep us fighting with each other so that we cannot united against the real cause of our suffering, which is Wall Street and Washington DC. It is worthwhile studying the history of COINTELPRO, the one moment in US history when these dirty tricks were exposed to public scrutiny.

Kent State shootings: Does former informant hold the key to the May 4 mystery?

In the four decades since Ohio National Guardsmen fired on students and antiwar demonstrators at Kent State University, Terry Norman has remained a central but shadowy figure in the tragedy.

The 21-year-old law enforcement major and self-described "gung-ho" informant was the only civilian known to be carrying a gun -- illegally, though with the tacit consent of campus police -- when the volatile protest unfolded on May 4, 1970. Witnesses saw him with his pistol out around the time the Guardsmen fired.

US-Saudi Led Blitzkrieg against Yemen is “An Ego Boost”

“Slaughter Yemenis civilians, and win a free Bentley.” That pretty much sums up Saudi Arabia’s frivolous four-week military jamboree in Yemen otherwise known as Op “Decisive Storm”, if not its entire foreign (and now military) policy in the region; it may have been a “slip of the tweet” on the part of Saudi Prince Al Waleed Bin Talal, a Forbes top 100 billionaire who offered via his Twitter account to award Saudi fighter-jet pilots a fleet of 100 Bentley luxury cars, a bonus if you will, for their (bombing) services rendered; nonetheless it paints a vivid, albeit repulsive, picture of how politics are conducted in the oil-rich sheikhdoms of the Gulf: at the deviant whims of their Kings and Princes.

U.S. State Department Pettier and More Vindictive than During Cold War

The U.S. State Department under Barack Obama has become more petty and vindictive diplomatically than at any time in recent history, including during the Cold War. The actions of U.S. diplomats in pressuring heads of state and government not to attend the May 9 Victory over Nazism commemoration in Moscow, coupled with the U.S. leaning on countries to recognize Kosovo while warning them not to recognize Abkhazia or South Ossetia, is unprecedented in its vitriol.

The individual plaintiffs are Lisa Cooper, of Put-in-Bay; Eric Haines, of Stow, Ohio; and Rikki Singstock, of Southgate, Mich, who were arrested by Put-in-Bay police in 2013. Police responded to a confrontation and arrested the three on a variety of charges. Ms. Singstock’s case was dismissed.

Ms. Cooper charged with obstructing official business, and Mr. Haines charged with theft and unlawful restraint, were found not guilty by a jury in October.

The new suit describes the arrests as “unlawful” and “unjustified” and seeks unspecified compensatory and punitive damages.

Techno-Financial Capital and Genocide of the Poorest of the Poor

It is no coincidence that the most violent assaults and invasions by the Euro-American powers have taken place against the poorest countries in each region of the world. In the Western hemisphere, the Euro-US regimes have repeatedly invaded the absolutely poorest country, Haiti, overthrowing the popularly elected Aristide government, decimating the population via a cholera epidemic spread by UN mercenary ‘peace-keepers’, killing tens of thousands of poor Haitians and rounding up thousands of protestors. The occupation continues. Honduras, the second poorest country in the region, experienced a US-backed coup d’état deposed their recently elected president and imposed a terrorist puppet regime, which regularly assassinates dissidents and landless rural workers. Peasants are dispossessed; the economy and society are in shambles with tens of thousands of Hondurans (especially children) fleeing the violence.

Already in 2011, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán promised to serve justice on his socialist predecessors, who sold the nation’s people into unending debt slavery under the lash of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the terrorist state of Israel. Those earlier administrations were riddled with Israelis in high places, to the fury of the masses, who finally elected Orbán’s Fidesz party in response.

U.S. Cuts back its Watchdogs after Billions Lost and Billions More to be spent on Escalating Afghanistan War

The Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR), John Sopko, has never shied away from reporting on the myriad mistakes and bad decisions on the part of the State and Defense departments in Afghanistan.

For his honest and thorough assessments, Sopko may now have to make do with a much smaller staff to keep watch on how U.S. money is being spent. Sopko was told by the State Department that he must remove 40% of his staff from Afghanistan within the year. The reduction will mean the number of SIGAR staff members will fall from 42 to 25.

Conflicting reports on gun incident in Baltimore

Conflicting reports about a police chase that may have involved gunfire roiled Baltimore Monday, just a week after riots rocked the city.

Initial reports said a man had been shot, but police then said a gun dropped by a man running from police went off, and that no one was hit by a bullet. Earlier, Baltimore Police tweeted the man was shot "multiple times," but police later said no one had been shot.

Shooting: 2500 block Marbourne Ave. Man reported to be shot multiple times. Southern District detectives investigating.

Blow your savings and live forever in the new Atlantic City

There was a time, believe it or not, when Atlantic City was considered the healthiest place in America. The town founder, Jonathan Pitney, was a country doctor and failed politician who, in 1850, decided to turn the southern New Jersey coast into a “city by the sea,” extolling the restorative properties of the sea air and saltwater. For decades—before the afflictions of Prohibition and organized crime, and long before the arrival of urban blight, Donald Trump, Don King, and fiscal despair—physicians from as far west as Chicago sent invalids and convalescents for recuperation. In an 1881 health-oriented publication, alongside ads for liver powder, hypophosphites syrup, and “fluid beef,” one doctor claimed the Atlantic City air could even cure malaria.

Now, more than a century later, there’s a modern-day heir to Dr. Pitney, with a Trump-like plan. And it all starts with making Atlantic City good for your health again.

New York City Police Officer Shot In Head Dies

An NYPD officer who was shot in the head while sitting in an unmarked car in Queens Saturday has died from his injuries.

Brian Moore, 25, died Monday, the NYPD confirmed.

"Condolences to the family of PO Brian Moore who lost his life today. RIP to a true hero. We will never forget. #Hero," the NYPD 104th Precinct tweeted Monday afternoon.

"The shooting of Officer Brian Moore over the weekend was a deplorable act of violence that has robbed New York of one of its finest," New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said in a statement Monday. "As a member of the NYPD, Officer Moore put the safety of his fellow New Yorkers before his own, and we will remember his service with gratitude and pride. I join with all New Yorkers in mourning his passing and send my deepest condolences to his friends and family."

Moore underwent surgery for what court papers described as "severe injuries to his skull and brain" and had been in a coma.

Israel inflicted massive harm on Palestinians during 2014 war: Report

Israel inflicted "massive and unprecedented harm" to Palestinian civilians in the 2014 Gaza war with indiscriminate fire and lax rules of engagement, a report said on Monday, citing testimony given anonymously by dozens of troops.

The 237-page report by the Israeli advocacy group Breaking the Silence described how Israel Defence Forces (IDF) left swathes of devastation after they invaded Gaza last July with the stated aim of halting Hamas rocket fire out of the enclave.

"We were firing purposelessly all day long. Hamas was nowhere to be seen," one tank sergeant was quoted as saying.

The group said its finding cast "grave doubt on the IDF's ethics".

Four days after the incident, Abu Rhoda filed a complaint with the police. Almost three years later, on August 6, 2014, the prosecution informed us that it closed the case for lack of evidence. After a series of 14 phone calls, we managed to photocopy the case file on December 15, 2014 — more than four months after the case was closed. However, it was immediately apparent some of the material was missing. We continued requesting it until February 2015.

NATO Commander Philip Breedlove Believes “War Is Peace”. Mobilization for War against Russia?

US NATO commander General Philip Breedlove is part of America’s lunatic fringe. He believes provoking Russia belligerently promotes world peace.

He wants more US combat troops close to Russia’s borders – more provocative military exercises antagonizing its leadership.

He lied claiming Moscow continues arming Donbass self-defense forces in preparation for war, saying:

“Russian forces used the opportunities presented by the recent lull in fighting to reset and reposition while protecting their gains.”

“Many of their actions are consistent with preparations for another offensive.”

Fact: Not a shred of evidence suggests Russian direct or indirect involvement in Obama’s naked aggression on Donbass.

Fact: Throughout over a year of intense and low-level war, it’s gone all-out to resolve things diplomatically.

State Department officials lied claiming Donbass freedom fighters are a virtual part of Russia’s military.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There should be real consequences for military, State Department, and Congressional warmongers who lie to the American people in order to jinn up a war fever where no real emergency exists.

I have to wonder just how much of Breedlove's stock portfolio is invested in the military/industrial complex. Were I a betting person, I would bet, quite a bit.

Saudi jets target Yemen food trucks

Saudi fighter jets have targeted two trucks of food in Yemen’s northwestern province of Sa’ada amid the deepening humanitarian crisis in the war-torn Arab country.

The fresh airstrikes were carried out on Sunday in the Malahidh area near the Saudi border.

Saudi fighter jets also struck Adan’s International Airport after the popular committees, loyal to Ansarullah fighters, took full control of the site.

The Saudi warplanes also bombarded Wadi Lieh district in the province.

There have been no immediate reports about the casualties of the attacks.

Saudi authorities have defied numerous warnings of a deteriorating humanitarian situation in Yemen and blocked relief aid shipments to Yemen.

The UN says key infrastructure including water supplies, health services and telecommunications in Yemen are on the verge of collapse.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is precisely what the Saudi government and military, backed by their US enablers, want to have happen.; slaughter of the highest magnitude, against the innocent; women, children, elderly, and medically fragile.

I remember the mental images I had as a child of this country's government; tolerant, generous, loyal to allies, and deeply observant of the principals of the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

Unfortunately, at this time in this government's existence, it has become afraid of its own people, and wants to control them through 24/7 surveillance, even if they have done nothing wrong.

This government spies on its own allies.

This government indulges in the unconstitutional practice of extrajudicial assassinations abroad, and may well, in the not too distant future, be doing this at home also.

In both its domestic and foreign policies, it has completely eviscerated the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

It has become a purchased organism through which the monied and major corporations work their agenda to become even more profitable. And if you don't believe that can happen, just look at how Monsanto is doing everything possible to control food production, both in this country and beyond.

This government, at every level, is completely untrustworthy, and I can no longer believe anything it says.

Starting Thursday, Sens. Tom Cotton (R – AK) and Marco Rubio (R – FL) stalled the compromise Iran nuclear talks bill, trying to force votes on a series of amendments to the bill that would impose a series of new demands on Iran, none of which were nuclear-related.

Some of the amendments, including a demand that Iran publicly endorse Israel as a “Jewish state,” were opposed even by many hawks, who saw the language as so divisive it might imperil the bill outright.

The Senate’s Republican leadership has announced they are going to “wrap up” consideration of amendments to the bill on Monday, spurning further pushes by Cotton and Rubio, and will try to have a vote on the bill itself this week. The bill aims to give the US Congress the power to veto a deal between the P5+1 and Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good!

There are many logical, and deep, disagreements I have with this Administration, but the potential for the P5+1 agreement with Iran is not one of them.

The wild card in all of this, of course, is Israel, which may simply decide to cork off militarily against Iran, while the ink is barely dry on the agreement.

And Secretary of State Kerry is naive in the extreme when he makes the following remarks, as noted in antiwar.com, yesterday:

Speaking today on Israel’s Channel 10, Secretary of State John Kerry urged Israel to tone down its hysteria over the possible P5+1 nuclear deal with Iran, saying the US can guarantee to Israel that Iran will never acquire a nuclear weapon. At the same time, Kerry said he didn’t believe there was a serious risk of a “surprise” Israeli attack on Iran, saying he couldn’t imagine Israel would attack Iran without consulting the US government first.

Mr. Secretary, were I you, I would not bet against that possibility at all.
