Cleveland to Pay $3 Million Over Police Shooting

Gilbert called the shooting "probably one of the worst cases of police misconduct" in U.S. history because of the number of police officers involved. More than 100 officers and 60 police cars, including some driven by supervisors, were involved in the chase. Gilbert said that by the time the chase ended in East Cleveland, officers had Russell's car blocked in and surrounded when they opened fire.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Basically the victims' car was stopped and the two men unarmed when the police opened up with 137 shots, killing both of them.

Jennifer Huculak-Kimmel billed $950K US after giving birth in U.S.

Jennifer Huculak-Kimmel gave birth nine weeks early while on holiday in Hawaii in November 2013. Her baby daughter had to be hospitalized.

"My water broke two days into our holiday," Huculak-Kimmel said. "I spent six weeks on bed rest and then baby Reece was delivered by emergency C-section on December 10th."

Reece had to stay in the hospital for just over two months. Huculak-Kimmel thought that her insurance would cover the almost $1 million US bill.

In the end, Blue Cross denied payment. In a letter to the family, a Blue Cross worker wrote, "We are unable to provide coverage for any medical expenses incurred for Ms. Huculak's baby" and "please note that Ms. Huculak's travel policy expired on Nov. 9, 2013."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

CORRECTION: Pacific Blue Cross issued health insurance for the Canadian couple to travel outside Canada. They are not part of Canada's health system, which apparently stops at the border.

High Court will hear case of UK torture and rendition victim

A High Court judge has said that a victim of UK rendition and torture can proceed with his claims against the British Government.

In a judgment handed down today, Mr Justice Leggatt found that the court would be “failing in its duty” if it did not deal with the claims of Yunus Rahmatullah, from Pakistan. Mr Rahmatullah was seized by UK forces in Iraq in 2004 and tortured before being handed over to the US and rendered to Bagram prison in Afghanistan, via the notorious Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. He suffered a further decade of secret US detention before he was finally released in June this year.

The UK long denied any involvement in rendition, before being forced to correct the record in Parliament in 2008, when then-Defence Secretary John Hutton publically admitted that the rendition of Mr Rahmatullah and another man, Amanatullah Ali, had taken place.

Zionist violence escalates in Occupied Palestine

it is downright disingenuous and simply plain wrong to define an “Israeli” settler as a civilian and by extension a victim of “terror”. The Zionist project from its very inception in the 19th century, brought Jewish immigrants from all over the world into Palestine in order to violently seize Palestinian land and dispossess the indigenous Palestinians so that “Israel” could come into being. The mere length of time that a squatter has resided on land that does not belong to him can never transform a bogus claim into a right. “Israel” is an illegitimate entity and “Israeli” is a manufactured label meant to give supremacist settlers a national identity.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Meanwhile ABCNNBBCBSFOX are totally focused on the synagogue attack while refusing to even acknowledge the earlier attacks by Israelis on the Al Agsa Mosque, the lynching of the Palestinian bus driver, and the shooting of a Palestinian teenager for "loitering."

DHS & National Guard Preparing For Mass Rioting In Ferguson

Greece is battling to exit it early but the IMF wants Greece to take on more debt. As time goes on it is taking people longer and long to get a job. Inflation creeps up even though fuel prices are down. NAHB sentiment up, mortgage apps and sales decline.France will not sign the TTIP. Frankfurt is now offering direct settlements in Chinese yuan. US now ranks 21 in personal freedom according to a survey. DHS and the National Guard are getting prepared for riots. The FBI warns things can go hot fast not just in Ferguson but around the country.

Senate Dems filibuster Keystone pipeline, delivering major win to environmentalists

Senate Democrats filibustered the Keystone XL pipeline on Tuesday, in a vote that reverberated from Louisiana, where a key senator’s career is now likely doomed, to the broader national Democratic Party, where environmentalists have emerged triumphant in a divisive internal battle with labor unions.

The Keystone vote had taken on symbolism far beyond the small impact on American crude supplies and the slight effect expected on gas prices, with environmentalists drawing lines and daring moderate and conservative Democrats to cross it. In the end most were unwilling to defy the ascendant movement, and they said it marked a key moment in the global warming debate.

Seattle protestors and police await Ferguson grand jury decision

The nation is waiting for a grand jury decision out of Ferguson, Missouri on whether to indict the police officer who shot and killed 18-year-old Michael Brown.

Many are also awaiting the violence that could follow, depending on the outcome. Both protestors and police in Seattle are preparing for that possibility.

A small group of protestors gathered at Seattle's Westlake Center Monday to show their support for Ferguson and Brown. Organizers promised a similar but much bigger event the day the grand jury in Ferguson makes a decision.

"There needs to be an indictment. People need to demand that," said protestor Emma Kaplan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yeah, someone wants this to explode across the nation for some political gain.

NAACP Condemns Ferguson State of Emergency, Compares Rioters, Looters to Boston Tea Partiers

After Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon (D) declared a state of emergency on Monday days before the Ferguson grand jury is expected to make its decision on whether to indict the officer who shot and killed Michael Brown, the NAACP condemned the decision as "presumptuous."

NAACP President and CEO Cornell Brooks said the state of emergency declaration only threatens to "stir up tension" and is "both premature in its application and presumptuous in intention" to the "hundreds of peaceful demonstrators who have embraced their Constitutional right to protest."

Plight of Chewy, Michigan dog tied outdoors in snow, creates furor on Facebook

Dog lovers around the world are uniting on behalf of Chewy, a small mixed breed mutt from Gobles, who has been pictured tied to a tree in recent snow storms.

After Monday night's storm the dog's champion, who writes that she lives nearby on the 29000 block of CR 390, turned to social media to try to pressure action on the dogs's behalf.

The Kalamazoo Gazette has received calls and emails from Ohio, New York, and South Africa, among other places.

Across the political and media elite in Australia, a silence has descended on the memory of the great, reforming prime minister Gough Whitlam, who has died.

Pension debt in the Land of Lincoln is a big problem. So big, in fact, that it would take three years of a complete government shutdown, during which the entire general fund went toward pensions, just to break even. No funding for schools, no money for public safety and nothing for health care and human services.

PCHR Report On Israeli Human Rights Violations in the oPt for November 06 - 12, 2014

During the reporting period, Israeli forces killed a Palestinian civilian in al-Aroub refugee camp, north of Hebron. They wounded 26 civilians, including 10 children, in the West Bank. Five of these civilians were wounded during Israeli incursions, including 3 children, and one of them was arrested. Moreover, 3 civilians, including an international human rights activist, were wounded in Bil'in weekly protest, west of Ramallah, while 17 others, including 7 children, were wounded in other peaceful protests. A civilian was also wounded by settlement guards as he ran down and stabbed Israeli soldiers at "Kfar Etzion" settlement, south of Bethlehem. In the Gaza Strip, Israeli navy forces opened fire 3 times at Palestinian fishing boats. As a result, 2 fishermen were wounded and 2 boats were burnt.

In the West Bank, in excessive use of force, on 11 November 2014, Israeli forces killed a Palestinian civilian in al-'Aroub refugee camp, north of Hebron.

Obama team lays groundwork to justify letting millions of illegal immigrants stay

Confronted with President Obama’s previous statements that a blanket waiver of deportations “would be difficult to defend legally,” the White House tried Tuesday to justify President Obama’s pending executive action to grant legal status to millions of illegal immigrants.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If Congress lets Obama get away with changing the immigration laws, then there will be no stopping Obama from using executive orders to ban guns, silence the independent media, force a carbon tax on all of us, etc.

But...

While preparing to give de facto amnesty to millions of illegal aliens, the Obama immigration officials refused to renew the work visa for National Basketball Association player Gal Mekel who hails from Israel and is currently viewed as a valuable NBA free agent, according to officials from the Indiana Pacers basketball team.

Israel to ease gun controls after attack

Israel is to ease controls on carrying weapons for self-defence after a deadly Palestinian attack on a Jerusalem synagogue, Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch said on Tuesday.

"In the coming hours, I will ease restrictions on carrying weapons," he said in remarks broadcast on public radio, indicating it would apply to anyone with a licence to carry a gun, such as private security guards and off-duty army officers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Funny! In the US, every time there is an attack the government INCREASES restrictions on personal weapons!

Rape, Lies & Videotape in Ferguson

The department spokesman’s doubts notwithstanding, the ensuing arrest report was fielded by none other than Wilson, badge 609. The report states that Wilson had been preparing to issue 30-year-old Mike Arman a summons for having broken-down cars in his yard, in violation of one of the ordinances that allow the city to raise millions of dollars from poor and working people and issue an annual average of three warrants per household. Wilson attests that he arrested Arman for “failure to comply” after he supposedly ignored instructions to “remove the camera from my face in order for us to complete the process of the derelict vehicles.”

Never mind that Arman’s camera was those eight strides from being in Wilson’s face. Wilson also cited Arman for “violation of pit bull regulations,” saying there were three in the yard. Arman would insist that he has only a bulldog.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If there is a riot following the Darren Wilson announcement, I point the finger of blame squarely at the police departments of the United States, those civil-forfeiture happy, Israeli trained, trigger-happy fools who have forgotten that there is a Bill of Rights they are supposed to comply with.

Man recovering from Ebola quarantined at Delhi airport

Officials have quarantined a man who was cured of Ebola in Liberia but continued to show traces of the virus in samples of his semen after arriving in the country, the health ministry said on Tuesday.

The ministry said in a statement that the Indian national had been shown to be negative for Ebola in tests conforming to World Health Organisation (WHO) guidelines, but had been quarantined as a precautionary measure when he arrived at New Delhi airport on November 10. Later, tests of his semen detected traces of the virus.

RECORD COLD: 63 year old record will fall

The all-time *coldest high temperature* ever recorded on November 18th was 25 degrees back in 1951. We are expecting to beat that record today. Not only will Beckley beat it but every location in the state is expected to have the coldest highs ever recorded. That's impressive!

Record single-digit cold likely overnight

If you think it's unseasonably cold, you're right.

If Indianapolis dips into the single digits early Tuesday, as expected, it would be the coldest November day since Nov. 30, 1976, said Amanda Lee, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. "The low then was 7."

Winds of 16 to 25 mph during daylight hours today mean the wind chill value could hit 8 below zero.

It's been a while since we've been in single-digit cold: March 4, Lee said.

Bitter cold, snow makes U.S. shiver

Just how cold? Bitterly. The second major blast of arctic air this month has sent the mercury plummeting in thermometers across the United States, as subfreezing temperatures were expected in all 50 states on Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service. (Yes, even Hawaii.) And more than half the country woke to snow cover.

In upstate New York, nearly three feet of lake-effect snow blanketed the Buffalo area, as whiteout conditions forced the closure of a 105-mile stretch of the New York State Thruway. State troopers using all-terrain vehicles delivered blankets and other emergency supplies to stranded motorists, state police Capt. Ed Kennedy told the Associated Press.

Lawsuit: Ferguson officer raped pregnant woman

This small Midwest city has a new problem -- a lawsuit that claims a corrections officer raped a pregnant woman and that police in the city have engaged in a "pattern of violence against the citizenry."

The woman sued Officer Jaris Hayden and the city of Ferguson and alleges the assault happened at the city jail while she was about three months pregnant. Court papers identify the alleged victim by her initials, J.W., because she says she is a rape victim.

Ferguson Grand Jury Nears Decision

The 12-member grand jury that is debating whether to charge white police officer Darren Wilson with a crime in the shooting death of unarmed black 18-year-old Michael Brown this past August is nearing its decision.

Nine of the jurors must agree there is probable cause in order to charge Wilson. They are not sequestered. And their decision is likely to spark violence, perhaps across the U.S.

Fake Video Footage: The West’s Propaganda War on Syria Exposed Once Again

While the Daily Mail claims “experts” claimed “they have no reason to doubt its authenticity,” those who have witnessed the West’s intentional, systematic deceit throughout the duration of the Syrian conflict could cite many reasons. With it now confirmed that the above mentioned video is a hoax, yet another reason still can be cited.

Indeed, the video was a complete hoax – a literal production filmed in Malta, not Syria, and consisting of actors, actresses, and special effects. The UK Mirror in its article, “Footage of Syrian ‘hero boy’ dodging sniper’s bullets to save girl revealed as FAKE,” would finally admit:

Lars Klevberg, 34, from Oslo, devised the hoax after watching news coverage of the troubles in Syria.

He told BBC Trending: “If I could make a film and pretend it was real, people would share it and react with hope.

“We shot it in Malta in May this year on a set that was used for other famous movies like Troy and Gladiator.

Climatologist: 30-Year Cold Spell Strikes Earth

With nasty cold fronts thrusting an icy and early winter across the continental U.S. — along with last winter described by USA Today as "one of the snowiest, coldest, most miserable on record" — climatologist John L. Casey thinks the weather pattern is here to stay for decades to come.

In fact, Casey, a former space shuttle engineer and NASA consultant, is out with the provocative book "Dark Winter: How the Sun Is Causing a 30-Year Cold Spell," which warns that a radical shift in global climate is underway, and that Al Gore and other environmentalists have it completely wrong.

The earth, he says, is cooling, and cooling fast.

Ten Chemical Weapons Attacks Washington Doesn’t Want You to Talk About

Washington doesn’t merely lack the legal authority for a military intervention in Syria. It lacks the moral authority.

Here is a list of 10 chemical weapons attacks carried out by the U.S. government or its allies against civilians.

The War on Christmas takes a turn for the weird

Fair enough.

Hot Off The Press-Har Nof Jerusalem Is Deir Yassin and it is Remembered

The attack on a synagogue in Jerusalem today took place in Har Nof, a Jewish neighborhood built over the ruins of Deir Yassin, a Palestinian village whose inhabitants were wiped out on April 9, 1948. The Deir Yassin Massacre delivered a clear message to the Palestinian people. The Jewish militias were driven by genocidal inclinations and the Arabs better run for their lives. However, it seems as if the Palestinian collective memory is alive and kicking - it may be possible that the Deir Yassin Massacre was commemorated today.

WHAT REALLY HAPPENED IN SERIOUS NEED OF DONATIONS

You all know how I hate to ask for money, but with the costs of moving to the new server, problems with the membership system, companies going out of business that used to advertise with us, etc. WRH, like everyone else (not being paid to be a government/corporate propagandist), is struggling to make ends meet.

Nobody working on WRH gets a salary. We do not earn anything off of the GCN radio show. This is all done for love of country and the restoration of the Republic. If I could pay for it all out of my own pocket I would do so (as I did the first decade), but the costs for equipment, ISP, bandwidth are going up.

The good news is that we do not have the overhead of other operations (as the people who write in to complain about the lack of a backdrop on the Bambuser feed like to remind me), so even a tiny bit of help can keep WRH running.

Thanks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

UPDATE: My sincere thanks to everyone who has donated. Every bit helps. I am most touched by the people who sent in donations even though prudence and their own economic situations would have suggested not doing so. As I noted in the letters section, we received donations from people who have lost their jobs, their investments, some on the verge of losing their homes. These are people who really cannot afford to support the patriot movement but choose to do so anyway because they know this is their country, and it is in danger from its own government, and they want their Constitutional Republic brought back. The best way to fight the Big Money influence on government is for all the "little money"; the millions of working and middle class Americans, to band together in opposition to the oligarchs who have murdered what was once the greatest nation on Earth and even now squabble in the halls of Congress over who will get to carve off the biggest chunk of the carcass.

Again, thank you, all of you.

Are You Aged Between 18-34? Congratulations, You Are Probably Broke.

The current generation of young adults, known as the ‘millennials’ or sometimes the ‘echo boomers’, is the most educated generation in the United States. A huge percentage of them are also broke by every economic measure. So why can’t they find job security and financial stability? AJ+ labs compares the current crop of young citizens with that of their parents: the Baby Boomers.

Despite making up a similar share of the U.S. population, at 24% and 25% apiece, the levels of asset ownership and debt between the two generations are truly startling. While the boomers still have over $18 billion dollars in debts to settle, their children’s generation has over $1 trillion dollars in outstanding debts, mostly from predatory student loans which are used to finance tertiary education. That is, a college degree which for many will offer no return on investment in an economy marked by globalization, outsourcing, and technological upheaval.

Tourism In Iran: Western Visitors Thrilled With Persian Hospitality

What better way to learn more about the fascinating history and culture of Iran, and how the country and it’s people are anything BUT being part of an “axis of evil”, than to hear it from the tourists themselves? Tourism in Iran is growing steadily as the country has developed a reputation for being very safe and astoundingly affordable.

Perhaps best of all, the word is out that western tourists are being “killed” with kindness and hospitality by the Iranian people. Persians are by and large very thankful for foreign visitors because their mere presence proves they do not believe in the incessant negative stereotypes of their country, which westerners are regularly bombarded with by their corporate media outlets.

Yuan can become dominant world reserve currency – survey

The Chinese yuan can overtake the dollar as the leading international reserve currency, a new poll of institutional investors indicates.

The authors of the survey, conducted by the Economist Intelligence Unit and commissioned by State Street financial services, polled 200 senior executives at institutional investors with knowledge of their exposure to yuan assets. Half of the respondents were from the firms headquartered in mainland China (including Hong Kong and Taiwan) and the other half were based elsewhere.

The report accompanying the survey points out that by the end of 2013, the yuan has risen to become the second-most-used trade financing currency and ninth-most-used currency for payments globally.

EPA Chief: Pause In Global Warming ‘Doesn’t Represent Climate’

Environmental Protection Agency chief Gina McCarthy told reporters Monday morning that the so-called pause in global warming was not representative of the broader trends in climate, which she says point to global warming.

“That is a short-lived issue that doesn’t represent climate,” McCarthy told reporters at a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor, adding that many other factors show the planet is changing because of human influence– though she did not elaborate on this point because the breakfast was nearing its end.

FLASHBACK - How Eisenhower solved illegal border crossings from Mexico

Fifty-three years ago, when newly elected Dwight Eisenhower moved into the White House, America's southern frontier was as porous as a spaghetti sieve. As many as 3 million illegal migrants had walked and waded northward over a period of several years for jobs in California, Arizona, Texas, and points beyond.

President Eisenhower cut off this illegal traffic. He did it quickly and decisively with only 1,075 United States Border Patrol agents – less than one-tenth of today's force. The operation is still highly praised among veterans of the Border Patrol.

New video shows Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber agreeing that states' opposition to massive Medicaid expansion may be race-related

Video unearthed today by veteran White House reporter Keith Koffler shows Gruber agreeing that states' opposition to the Medicaid expansion dictated by the federal health law may be race-related.

He also claimed states that rejected federal funds for Medicaid wanted 'to punish poor people,' which he said 'really is just almost awesome in its evilness.'

Petitioning Jim Benson - Stop Fracking next to El Paso, Texas

Fracking endangers the health, safety and welfare of people, pollutes the air and ground, results in rising crime and social and medical costs, utterly destroys ecosystems and permanently contaminates underground aquifers with toxic compounds and consumes billions of gallons of water. Yet, just a few minutes away from the city limits of El Paso, Texas a major metropolitan area of 675,000 people, and a few miles from the farming community of Dell City, Texas, the University of Texas System has leased over a hundred thousand acres to Torchlight Energy Resources, Inc. for the sole purpose of fracking. Torchlight Energy says that it may drill up to as many as 2500 wells on this area immediately east of El Paso called the Diablo Plateau which, with the Otero Mesa in New Mexico, forms a rich ecosystem of plants and animals. Torchlight Energy Resources must not drill there. The University of Texas Lands System must not allow them.

Mysterious Earth-Shaking Booms Rock Ohio

Three unexplained earth-shaking booms rocked two Ohio counties last night, prompting a wave of 911 calls from concerned residents.

Residents of Montgomery County and Warren County reported hearing three loud booms at around 7pm yesterday evening, prompting the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office to send deputies out to investigate.

“One Miamisburg man said the loud booms sounded like an explosion, and that the last one sounded louder than the first,” reports WHIO, adding that the booms brought baffled neighbors out into the street.

Local utility companies said there were no incidents or power outages in the area that could have explained the booms, while Wright-Patterson Air Force Base asserted that there were no aircraft in the area that could have caused a sonic boom by breaking the sound barrier.

Over the last few years, there have been a rash of reports concerning strange noises heard both underground and in the sky in areas across the country.

The attack, the deadliest in Jerusalem in years, is bound to ratchet up fears of sustained violence in the city, already on edge amid soaring tensions over a contested holy site.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed that Israel will “respond harshly” to the attack, describing it as a “cruel murder of Jews who came to pray and were killed by despicable murderers.” U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said he spoke to Netanyahu after the assault and denounced it as an “act of pure terror and senseless brutality and violence.”

Have scientists finally found the 'gay gene'? Major new study of 800 brothers backs claims sexuality is in our genes

A large study of gay brothers has reignited the debate over whether a 'gay gene' exists - and adds to evidence that genes influence men's chances of being homosexual.

Some scientists believe several genes might affect sexual orientation.

Researchers who led the new study of nearly 800 gay brothers say their results bolster previous evidence pointing to genes on the X chromosome.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I find it amazing how the buy-bull bangers continue to demonize gays as sinful, especially when you consider that Jesus spent all his time with other men (except his wife Mary Magdalene). :)

Beyond that, I think all the people screaming about population control need to understand that humans have a built-in population-limiting mechanism; homosexuality! If you study history it quickly becomes apparent that the per-capita occurrence of homosexuality increases during times of social stress. The gays not only have as much right to be here as anyone else, but in the long run they are essential to the long term survival of the human race.

False rape accusations exist, and they are a serious problem.

False rape accusations are a lightning rod for a variety of reasons. Rape is a repugnant crime—and one for which the evidence often relies on one person’s word against another’s. Moreover, in the not-so-distant past, the belief that women routinely make up rape charges often led to appalling treatment of victims. However, in challenging what author and law professor Susan Estrich has called “the myth of the lying woman,” feminists have been creating their own counter-myth: that of the woman who never lies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Poor Bill Cosby. Another woman has now come forward after decades to claim Cosby raped her.

Now, while a fan of his earlier works, I have never met Bill Cosby and I do not know anything about his private life. I cannot say whether he committed all these crimes or not. However, it is a fact that during the 1990s male-bash rape hysteria, the gender-feminists were encouraging women to lie about rape to "empower" themselves. Catherine Comins, the assistant dean of student activity at Vassar, was quoted in TIME Magazine in 2001 as saying that men could benefit from a false accusation of rape! The definition of what constituted rape got very blurry. No meant no, but yes didn't always mean yes in the light of the morning after. Certainly with an icon like Bill Cosby, a frustrated actress can get a lot of free publicity by jumping on the "he raped me" bandwagon, and I encourage everyone to wait until the provable facts are in before assuming that accusation equals guilt.

The Decision by the International Criminal Court (ICC) not to Prosecute Israel for War crimes Questions its own Viability

The decision this week by the ICC not to investigate the point-blank killing, by Israeli commandos, of nine unarmed Turkish passengers on board the Mavi Marmara aid vessel in 2010, although there was a ‘reasonable basis’ to believe that Israel had committed a war crime in its maritime attack upon civilians, seems indefensible.

The decision not to prosecute will inevitably raise questions about the integrity and impartiality of the ICC in the face of political pressure by the global Israel lobby that already operates in Washington, London and Brussels.

The reason given by the ICC chief prosecutor that the court is more concerned with larger scale incidents, ignores the fact that this attack upon civilian passengers in international waters was part of a six year campaign by the Israeli government to effect an illegal regime change in Gaza by means of a blockade of essential goods to 1.8 million Palestinian Arabs – that still continues today.

Heavy Snow Slows Drivers, Knocks Power Out In Some Areas

Roads around Central Ohio became slick and snow covered early on Monday morning.

Law enforcement in several counties, including Franklin, declared Level 1 snow emergencies. That means roads and highways are hazardous with blowing and drifting snow.

Many schools delayed or closed as the snow swept into the area.

The concern for Monday night is that the sludge on the roads will freeze and turn to ice as temperatures drop.

“Drive slow, and don't hit your breaks, because you'll spin out of control it's better to be slow and cautious and avoid the problem to begin with,” said Brooke Hannah of Pickaway County.

Local governments are watching their budgets carefully as this snow season begins so early. Columbus Mayor Michael Coleman said recently that there will be no additional funds for snow in the upcoming budget.

The city did get the first use of their new Warrior Watch tracking system, to see where plows had cleared.

The Real Reason Why Germany Halted Its Gold Repatriation From The NY Fed

Or, simply said, generic pretexts for a failure to follow through with the Bundesbank’s original intention of re-domiciling physical gold, especially after Zero Hedge posted in November 2012 proof of collusion between the 1968 Bank of England and the Fed seeking to defraud Deutsche Bank: ‘Bank Of England To The Fed: “No Indication Should, Of Course, Be Given To The Bundesbank…”

The charade ended with a thud in June of this year, when instead of continuing the farce, Germany simply gave up, providing an even more laughable reason why it can no longer even pretend to collect its physical gold located at New York’s 9 Liberty Street.

"Germany has decided its gold is safe in American hands. “The Americans are taking good care of our gold," Norbert Barthle, the budget spokesman for Merkel’s Christian Democratic bloc in parliament, said in an interview. "Objectively, there’s absolutely no reason for mistrust."

5 Reasons Working for Comcast Is Worse Than You Think

Internet customer service reps are like modern-day versions of Jack Lemmon in Glengarry Glen Ross: slimy, sleazy, and full of double talk -- but only because that's the only way they know how to survive, and it's exactly what they've been told to do. In fact, the great misconception is that "customer service" exists at all. In reality, everyone you talk to is in sales.

"Out of every 100 calls, you have to have at least two sales," says Beau, a Comcast representative. "If someone calls about their bill, I have to try to upsell them something. ... If you don't do that, you get coached on it, and if you get coached too much, you get fired. Our customer service isn't customer service; it's sales."

Last week, the government in Ukraine cut off pensions benefits to residents of rebel-held areas until such time as these areas return to Ukrainian control.

Yesterday, in yet another scorched-earth policy move, president Petro Poroshenko announced Ukraine Rebel Areas to Lose State Services.

Ukraine's president has ordered the withdrawal of all state services, including funding for hospitals and schools, from rebel-held areas.

Mr Poroshenko's ruling says all state companies and institutions should end their work in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions within a week.

It also says Ukraine's central bank is to close down all banking services - including card operations - in some areas within a month.

An icy blast that claimed at least six lives over the weekend was set to issue a second punch Monday and plunge large areas of the East, Midwest and South into a unseasonable freeze. Commuters in parts of the Midwest faced a "treacherous commute" on Monday after the deadly storm tore through their area. Forecasters said a new temperature drop later in the day would be accompanied by up to three feet of lake effect snow around the Great Lakes over the next two days, with the heaviest dump coming from Cleveland, Ohio, to Buffalo, New York. "It's going to be painful," said Kevin Roth, lead meteorologist at The Weather Channel.

After all, they only got "this one little thing" wrong. Which is like saying Challenger was a successful mission except for the part where it exploded. Yet another email accused me of not looking at the "Big Picture" and wagged the satellite temperature data at me. But as this article points out, the NOAA-16 satellite on which all the warning studies were based was defective and produced a decade's worth of data that was anywhere from 10 to 15 degrees warmer than the data recorded by ground stations. NOAA finally admitted there was a problem and deleted the data from their servers, yet the Carbonazis still cite it as a primary source for the claim that the Earth is warming even though we are clearly getting more snow and ice over the last several winters.

THE MONEY IN YOUR BANK ACCOUNT WAS STOLEN THIS MORNING

As of this morning all nations belonging to the G20 will immediately submit and pass legislation that will fulfill a new investment program. This new program creates a whole new paradigm and set of rules whereby banks will no longer recognize your deposits as money.

Russell Napier is declaring November 16th as “the day money dies,” and this constitutes today’s Zero Hedge’s headline. According to Zero Hedge, Napier says the G-20 will announce “that bank deposits are just part of commercial banks’capital structure, and also that they are far from the most senior portion of that structure.” Pay close attention America this means that following a bank failure, “a bank deposit is no longer money in the way a banknote is.”

Roundup Is Dumped On Crops Right BEFORE Harvest

Drenching Crops with Pesticide Right Before Harvest … to Save a Buck

Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide (technically known as “glyphosate”) has been linked to many diseases.

However, farmers appear to be dumping it on crops right before harvest.

Specifically, Monsanto International published a paper in 2010 touting the application of Roundup to kill crops right before harvest, in order to dry out the crops in advance and produce a more uniform and earlier harvest

Israel may face EU sanctions for hampering 2-state solution – secret document

Israel could soon find itself in trouble and face the wrath of Brussels: any further attempts to pose obstacles to a two-state solution with occupied Palestine could result in sanctions, Haaretz revealed, citing a 'confidential' EU document.

The classified paper was originally intended for internal circulation among the 28 member states, but word of its existence reached Israel after some of its diplomats in the EU leaked the fact to the Foreign Ministry back home.

Although the Israelis could not secure the full text of the document, some important details have come out, thanks to three EU diplomats and two senior Israeli officials.

Israel will 'never' limit settlement building in East Jerusalem – Israeli FM

Israel will never stop its settlement constructions in occupied East Jerusalem, according to Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman.

“One thing should be clear: we will never accept the definition of building in Jewish neighborhoods of Jerusalem as settlement activity,” Lieberman told a news conference. “We won't accept any limitation on building in Jewish areas of [East] Jerusalem.”

Lieberman’s comments come just four days after Israel approved plans to construct some 200 homes in Ramot, despite clashes in the region prompted by settlement expansion.

Tanzania’s Masai face homeland eviction…so Dubai royals can hunt

Masai people living in northern Tanzania are facing eviction from their historical homeland, as the government has reportedly reneged on a promise and is proceeding with plans to remake the land into a hunting reserve for Dubai's royal family.

There are about 40,000 Masai people living on the 1,500 square kilometer “wildlife corridor” bordering Serengeti National Park. They are known for their semi-nomadic ways and have their own distinctive culture.

The original proposal by a company based in the United Arab Emirates to turn the land into a commercial hunting park was turned down last year.

Kim Kardashian Shows Off Her Greatest Asset – and the World is Amazed

It’s been approximately two-and-a-half minutes since Kim Kardashian had everybody’s attention, and so the world was treated to something it had never, ever seen before: her naked butt. (Just kidding, she might not even be known at all if it wasn’t for a scandalous porn video she and “Ray J” were in that was “accidentally” leaked in 2003).

So, why Paper Magazine thought another photo of Kardashian’s, now Kardashian-West’s, naked booty would score wild news stand business and ‘break the Internet’ as they hope, is anyone’s guess.

Maui's GMO Ban Blocked By Federal Judge

A federal judge says Maui County may not implement a new law banning the cultivation of genetically modified organisms until he can consider arguments in a lawsuit against the measure.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So the GMO planters will just go on planting and by the time the judge finally hears the lawsuit it will be too late. Maui will be fully contaminated by these dangerous plants. The entire case against the ban is that the GMO companies will suffer harm. The exact same argument could be made about companies that dump toxic and nuclear waste; banning them from dumping their "product" onto Hawaii harms them financially. Does that mean we have to let them go on doing it?

Behind the USS Liberty Cover-up

“The Day Israel Attacked America,” an investigation into Israel’s deadly June 8, 1967 attack on the USS Liberty at the height of the Arab-Israeli Six-Day War, was aired recently on Al Jazeera America.

Directed by British filmmaker Richard Belfield, the documentary confirms not only that the attack on the U.S. Navy spy ship was deliberate — an undisputed fact long accepted by all but the most shameless Israeli apologists — but reveals, perhaps for the first time, how Tel Aviv was able to induce the U.S. government to cover up an attack that killed 34 and injured 171 of its own seamen by a supposed “ally.”

Obamacare Facebook page comments mostly from small group of supporters

Americans began heading anew this weekend to President Obama’s official Obamacare Facebook page to gather information on the new round of health care enrollment, share their experiences shopping for insurance on the federal exchange and voice their opinions on the president’s signature domestic achievement.

However, what some would view as a robust marketplace of ideas is actually controlled by just a few, an analysis of the Web page shows.

Sixty percent of the site’s 226,838 comments generated from September 2012 to early last month can be attributed to fewer than 100 unique profiles, according to an analysis completed by The Washington Times with assistance from an outside data analytics team. Many of those profiles belong to just one person who created multiple aliases or personas to widen her influence and multiply her voice.

Hagel to Consider Ground Troops in Iraq

In comments over the weekend, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel conceded that he is going to have to “consider” the deployment of ground troops to Iraq, though he reiterated that they would not be “combat troops.”

The distinction is increasingly ill-defined, as there are in point of fact already some 3,000 US ground troops in Iraq, and some of them are already on the front lines in the Anbar Province in an “advisory” capacity.

The negation of Palestinian lives has been German policy since the days of Konrad Adenauer [chancellor of West Germany from 1949 to 1963].

This cash flow from Germany went directly to the Israeli occupation machine that has made the Palestinians indirect victims of the Holocaust.

NSA monitoring situation: China training Pakistani troops along India border

The report, accessed by PTI, said these military manoeuvres were being conducted at forward defence locations of Pakistan which are usually manned by border guarding personnel– the Pakistan Rangers.

Preliminary inputs analysed by BSF also showed some Pakistan Army units have taken over paramilitary posts of Rangers opposite Sriganganagar sector.

BSF also found a handful of new observation towers have also been set up by Pakistan in recent past along Abohar and Gurdaspur sectors in Punjab.

The BSF intelligence reported that phone intercepts along the border indicate that Pakistan Army and Rangers are planning to deploy snipers and sharp shooters at strategic locations and posts to target Indian soldiers and assets.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF, IN FACT THIS REPORT IS TRUE (and note that there is a bit of weasel-wording here), why on earth would China be doing that, and at this point?!?

It appears that Pakistan is attempting to respond to the breakdown of the ceasefire with India, with some help from China; unfortunately, this is being spun as China-sponsored aggression.

IN PHOTOS ~~ HAS MOSSAD INFILTRATED THE US LEGAL SYSTEM?

After her conviction this week, Shurat HaDin, an Israeli legal group that The Electronic Intifada revealed works closely with the Israeli spy and assassination agency Mossad,claimed responsibility for helping US prosecutors unearth Odeh’s 45-year-old record with the Israeli military court. The Jerusalem Report said on Thursday:

“In trying to defang her defense, the NGO [Shurat HaDin] said that the US attorney’s office ran into heavy red tape trying to get the IDF [Israeli army] Archives Division to supply it, in timely fashion, with documents proving Odeh’s identity and conviction, in Israel’s Judea and Samaria [occupied West Bank] courts, for her hand in the bombing. Using its own connections, Shurat HaDin was able to get the relevant documents.”

‘I thought he was going to shoot me.’ Unsuspecting middle school students terrified by active shooter drill.

Police officers in Florida surprised students, teachers and parents Thursday with an active shooter drill. And by “active shooter drill,” we mean that a Winter Haven middle school went into lockdown as two armed police officers burst into classrooms, guns drawn, leaving the unsuspecting children terrified — and their parents furious.

According to Fox affiliate WTVT, officials at Jewett Middle Academy e-mailed parents to inform them of the drill, after it took place. By that point, WTVT reports, cellphones were already filling up with texts from frightened students, who thought there was a real shooter in the school.

In a later statement to The Post, spokesperson Jamie Brown for the Winter Haven police department said they were only aware of one student who texted a parent during the exercise.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Polk County Public Schools spokesman Jason Gearey: this drill was absolutely not about "safety": it was about a total, terrified submission to State authority, any time, anywhere, even though that submission may be hazardous to a student's mental or physical health.

And to the principal, not giving parents a heads-up before the drill, and perhaps choose for their child opt out?!? Pig-headedly, ham-fistedly stupid.

What if a kid in a classroom in this school had a tendency toward severe asthma, exacerbated by stress?!?!? As reported at yahoo.com"

es, asthma causes 4,000 deaths a year in the United States. But this is during very severe attacks, where an asthma sufferer can turn blue from lack of oxygen and can experience chest pain or even loss of consciousness. Just before loss of consciousness, there is a chance that the patient will feel numbness in the limbs and palms may start to sweat. The person's feet may become cold. Severe asthma attacks which are not responsive to standard treatments, called status asthmaticus, are life-threatening and may lead to respiratory arrest and death.

For me, NO CHILD IS EXPENDABLE, as a result of a drill like this.

Were I a parent with a kid at that school, understanding that this had been done without consent, I would have pulled my kid out of that school so fast, the principal's head would be swirling, and either home-schooled, or privately educated my child somehow.

It has become painfully apparent that public schooling in this country equals the public bullying and surveilling of its children.

In many districts, the costs of security devices outweighs what a school district may be paying its teachers, and there is something thorougly and fundamentally wrong with that.

Obama's Mercenary Attacks On Syria Are Breaking The Law

According to the Washington Post the U.S. administration is discussing to increase the numbers of CIA trained mercenaries in Syria:

The Obama administration has been weighing plans to escalate the CIA’s role in arming and training fighters in Syria, a move aimed at accelerating covert U.S. support to moderate rebel factions while the Pentagon is preparing to establish its own training bases, U.S. officials said.

The administration knows very well that the legal ground it is standing on is very, very weak. The people it trains are criminals and do not observe basic laws of war or human rights. The administration's solution to breaking the law is trying to change it:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Breaking - and or changing - the laws of this country in order to achieve their objectives, is nothing new to this Administration.

And those objectives here have to do with wars creating private personal profit of the large corporations, coupled with the continuation of the hegemony of the US dollar.

We know that regime change in Syria, according to this Administration, is the prelude to regime change in Iran: but at what cost to our troops, militarily, monetarily, or morally?!?

From an historical standpoint, sending in "advisers" has never augured well for this country. So far, any training of rebels against Al-Assad's military has been an exercise in complete futility.

And because it is understood in military circles that one cannot win what is essentially a ground war from the air, when will we see the first US boots on the ground in Syria, if, in fact they are not already covertly there?!?

With this article stating "Around 2,000 Syrian fighters are slated to be given military training, which is set to begin at the end of December.", I would not be surprised to see US boots on the ground in Syria the very first part of next year, late winter, early spring.

BUT there is a teensy-weensy fly in the ointment here. As reported September 13th 2013 in examiner.com:

As noted on the official website of the University of Washington's Jackson School of International Studies (Jenkins, 17), the Russian Federation maintains mutual defense treaties with both Syria and Iran. Russia has stated on more than one occasion that “Iran is our close neighbor, just south of the Caucasus. Should anything happen to Iran, should Iran get drawn into any political or military hardships, this will be a direct threat to our national security.” An Attack On One Is An Attack On All... With the civil war ravaged Syrian nation bordering America's Turkish NATO partner to its south, if any of Assad's forces strike sovereign Turkish territory, the Ankara government could not only legitimately strike back, but every NATO member state would be treaty bound to militarily assist in any armed response. Subsequently, both the Russians and the Iranians would have no choice but to come to the defense of their mutual ally in Damascus.

So, any US military incursion into EITHER Syria or Iran will require Russia coming to either country's aid militarily.

And I have to wonder: is a full frontal US military attack against Syria their "back door" to a war against Russia?!?

And to our President, Congress, State Department and Pentagon: I would like to politely suggest that I am, surely, not the only American to have figured this out.

This group included aliens convicted of hundreds of violent and serious crimes, including homicide, sexual assault, kidnapping, and aggravated assault.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am starting to suspect that the agenda at work here is the destruction of any sense of identity for the American people, to make it easier to dissolve America into a larger union. I note that the EU has, from the start, enforced a similar open-border policy across Europe, and erasure of regional sense of identity is essential to welding nations together into larger empires.

Jewish settlers storm Al-Aqsa compound in Jerusalem

"As many as 59 settlers stormed the holy compound through Al-Magharbeh Gate under the protection of Israeli police," Sheikh Azzam al-Khatib, director-general of the Organization for Muslim Endowments and Al-Aqsa Affairs, told Anadolu Agency.

The settlers wandered through the compound's courtyards, passing through the Qibali and Marawani mosques inside the holy complex before departing through Al-Silsileh Gate, he added.

Meanwhile, Israeli police allowed Palestinian men to enter the compound while denying women's entry.

The NAFTA Connection: The Role of “Free” Trade in Mexico’s Tragic Travails

Mexico’s liberalization of trade and finance, with help from the world’s largest banks, has enabled drug traffickers and the corrupt political establishment.

Many in the police, the judiciary and even the military are intimidated, inadequately trained, and/or corrupt. The influence of drug money within all three major political parties is now taken for granted…

On a positive note, the problem of endemic political corruption in Mexico is now finally getting the attention it deserves, both inside and outside Mexico’s borders. However, corruption tells only part of Mexico’s tragic sage. There is another no less important, but generally ignored, factor in the rise to dominance of Mexico’s drug cartels: the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

President Obama Defends Executive Authority on Immigration

Showing no signs of backing down, President Obama today strongly pushed back against critics questioning his authority to bypass Congress and act unilaterally to reform the nation’s immigration system.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We are at a very dangerous stage in our history. The President is attempting to claim the authority to write the laws of the nation from his desk. Anyone who knows the Constitution knows this is false (and Obama, who claims to be a former Constitutional law professor, should know it as well). The reason his office is known as the Executive branch is that the President's job is to execute the will of the Congress, which in turn is supposed to represent the will of the American citizens. They usually don't do that, but that is a topic for another time.

If Obama gets away with rewriting the laws of the land from his desk on immigration, rest assured it will not end there. Obama, emboldened by his success, will issue executive orders to ban guns, mandate vaccines, protect GMOs, silence dissent, block unions from striking, increase taxes, and so forth. Obama might even end term limits for Presidents! We already know, courtesy of the NSA scandal, that this government has lost all respect for the Bill of Rights, and indeed the Common Core curriculum is now brainwashing our children into believing that the Bill of Rights are actually special privileges given by the government, which may be taken away as the government sees fit, and that the right to keep and bears arms only applies to people in an organized state militia!

Once Congress lets Obama get away with "stroke of the pen, law of the land" once, it will continue, and this nation will truly be a dictatorship, the trappings of elections and legislative bodies notwithstanding.

Ferguson Officer Darren Wilson ‘exaggerated’ his injuries based on video, Brown family alleges

Never-before-seen video of Officer Darren Wilson on the night he shot unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., contradict police testimony, according to Brown’s family.

The video shows Wilson leave for the hospital a few hours after he shot Brown fatally, an incident that sparked weeks of protests and at times violent clashes with heavily armed police. It also started a nationwide discussion on the treatment of black people by the police.

The police department leaked information that Wilson had been severely beaten and suffered an orbital eye socket “blowout,” which suggested that the shooting was justified, but the video released indicated the “initial description of his injuries were exaggerated,” according to a statement from Brown’s family as quoted by ABC News.

More Federal Agencies Are Using Undercover Operations

At the Supreme Court, small teams of undercover officers dress as students at large demonstrations outside the courthouse and join the protests to look for suspicious activity, according to officials familiar with the practice.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sadly, merely looking is not all they do. These infiltrators often cause trouble to justify the police shutting down the protest or allowing the media to demonize the protesters without addressing the issues they raise.

We saw that many times in the Occupy protests, and I was personally at one of the best-documented examples of this practice, the day the Hippies took over Disneyland in 1970. This was an FBI operation, ordered by the Nixon White house, to discredit the anti-Vietnam peace movement. As detailed during the COINTELPRO scandal during the 1980s, FBI agents which had infiltrated the college campuses (heads up students, they are still doing it today) first organized the peace march, then turned it violent in front of the media cameras.

Watchers of the Sky Falls in a Pit

The United States is a society incapable of producing a major documentary film opposing the institution of war and explicitly advocating its abolition. If it did so, the major corporate media outlets would not sing such a film's praises.

Yet Watchers of the Sky is beloved by the U.S. corporate media because it opposes genocide, not war. I'm not aware of any opponents of war who don't also oppose genocide. In fact, many oppose the two as a single evil without the stark distinction between them. But the anti-genocide academic nonprofit industrial complex has become dominated by leading advocates for war.

Europe Faces Cold Winter After Longest Warm Spell Since 1964

Temperatures in Europe are forecast to be warmer than average this month in the mildest year since 1964 before plunging below normal this winter, potentially pushing up power and natural gas prices.

Six of seven forecasters surveyed by Bloomberg predict November to be milder than normal across Europe, marking 10 months of above-average temperatures this year. December through February is expected to be the 10th-coldest winter since 1981, according to MDA Information Systems LLC.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Carbonazis have a problem. They can fake (and have been caught faking) high temperature data to push the human-caused global warming hoax, but they cannot deny the snow and ice that is clearly showing the opposite of their claims is true. Earth is not getting warmer. We are heading into a little ice age courtesy of lowered solar output and there isn't a thing the Carbonazis can do about it no matter how much of your money they defraud you of.

Coming Europe Winter: “Meteorologists Agree” It is “Going To Be Damned Cold!”…Early Siberia Snow Bodes Ill

When alarmist climate institutes roll out papers claiming global warming is going to cause severely cold winters, then you have to wonder if they know something is up and are acting preemptively to salvage their crumbling climate science, which not long ago predicted with high confidence balmy snowless winters.

Siberian cold front sweeps across Europe, bringing record low temperatures

Plummeting winter temperatures have claimed dozens of lives across Central and Eastern Europe as the region battles a big freeze that is expected to worsen over the next few days. At least 50 people have died, mainly in Ukraine and Poland, as an icy continental weather front from Siberia has dragged temperatures to as low as -27 degrees Celsius, and forecasters in Poland have said that thermometers could hit -30 later in the week. The cold weather has even travelled as far south as Bulgaria where temperatures in the capital Sofia fell to -20, the lowest in 50 years.

Canada's yappy dog barks at Putin

Stephen Harper had a showdown with Vladimir Putin on Saturday, telling the Russian leader to "get out of Ukraine" in a dustup at the Group of 20 summit in Australia.

Harper's spokesman, Jason MacDonald, said the prime minister was speaking to a group of G20 leaders at a private leaders' retreat on Saturday morning when Putin approached and extended his hand.

MacDonald said Harper told Putin: "I guess I'll shake your hand but I have only one thing to say to you: You need to get out of Ukraine."

Meet the Warmongering Billionaires Who Will Spend a Fortune to Influence the Next President

Sheldon Adelson and Haim Saban, two billionaires with right-wing, pro-Israel agendas, took the stage at the Israeli American Council’s inaugural conference in Washington, D.C. They fantasized about bombing Iran and about buying the New York Times because they said it’s biased against Israel. Both are bound to play an outsized role in the 2016 presidential elections by flooding the campaign with money to support their favored candidates. In a post-Citizens United world, Adelson and Saban are kings, and Israel will be the beneficiary of their largesse if the donors have the ear of a future president.

“There’s no right or left when it comes to Israel,” Saban said in what news reports called a joking reference to the moguls’ seating positions at the conference where they spoke.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How does it make you feel, to understand, with absolutely painful clarity, that the next, strongest benefactor of the 2016 elections will be the country of Israel, no matter which candidate gets elected?!?

We the People have become useless, expendable, and irrelevant, when it comes to big money , fighting for an Israeli-centric government, no matter who gets chosen.

And what is wrong with this picture?!?

EVERYTHING.

What frightened the USS Donald Cook so much in the Black Sea?

As the Russian jet approached the US vessel, the electronic device disabled all radars, control circuits, systems, information transmission, etc. on board the US destroyer. In other words, the all-powerful Aegis system, now hooked up - or about to be - with the defense systems installed on NATO’s most modern ships was shut down, as turning off the TV set with the remote control.

The Russian Su-24 then simulated a missile attack against the USS Donald Cook, which was left literally deaf and blind. As if carrying out a training exercise, the Russian aircraft - unarmed - repeated the same maneuver 12 times before flying away.

What really happened in Beijing: Putin, Obama, Xi — and the back story the media won’t tell you

Courtis had a curious exchange with Putin during some of the economic forum sessions in Beijing. He asked if Russia would provide North Korea security guarantees if it agreed to renounce nuclear weapons.

Putin replied in part: “Your question is too clever. This is not the moment yet even to raise that question, let alone answer it. Often, the problem in the world is not that small countries, who feel they are under siege, are unwilling to change. Rather, it is that the bigger countries are all piling on like bullies in the school yard – and they don’t know when to stop.”

I hope Kerry and Obama were listening at that moment. As Courtis heard it, “I think Putin was signaling to the West that there will be no more help from Russia with sanctions on North Korea, or anywhere else. One could also read Iran, Syria, Venezuela, etc., into that line of reasoning.”

Bernard von NotHaus, “Architect” of the Liberty Dollar to be Sentenced

Von NotHaus did appeal his conviction stating….[1]

“…if anything is clear from the evidence presented at trial, it is that the last thing Mr. von NotHaus wanted was for Liberty Dollars [to] be confused with coins issued by the United States government…His intention – to protest the Federal Reserve system – has always been plain. The jury’s verdict conflates a program created to function as an alternative to the Federal Reserve system with one designed to [deceive] people into believing it was the very thing Mr. von NotHaus was protesting in the first place…the Liberty Dollars was not a counterfeit and was not intended to function as such. The verdict is a perversion of the counterfeiting statutes and should be set aside.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a miscarriage of justice to keep us all slaves to the Federal Reserve's debt-based money system. And I note that the government only moved against Liberty Dollars and Bernard von NotHaus after they put Ron Paul's face on a coin, which apparently hurt President Bush's poo widdle feewings.

Russian aggression against Ukraine a threat to world: Obama

The United States, as the world's only superpower, is leading the global community in opposing Russia's aggression against Ukraine, as well as other threats, U.S. President Barack Obama said on Saturday.

Okay Barry, if you really think a war with Russia is going to fix the ponzi-scheme economy...

And we'll call whoever it is you are telling us needs to be invaded this week and tell them you are on your way to kick their butts all by yourself.

Manipulation Of CPI Saved The Federal Government Over $150 Billion From 1998-2012

Hiding in econometric obscurity, in an area of research so boring no economist would dare tread, did the government knowingly encourage the adoption of a dubious economic theory that would likely bias inflation downward? If so, it was a good bet.

Priest accused of historic sexual abuse allegations

A Catholic priest has been charged with a string of sex offences dating back 30 years.

Canon Mortimer Stanley returned to Greater Manchester from his home in Ireland to face the allegations at Bury Magistrates court today.

The Crown Prosecution Service authorised Greater Manchester Police to charge Canon Stanley, 82, after complaints by former pupils at a Rochdale school.

He is accused of 17 charges of indecent assault on a girl under 14 between 1977 and 1988.

The allegations involve ten victims. All the alleged victims were pupils at St Vincent’s Primary School, which has been historically linked to the parish.
