WHAT REALLY HAPPENED | The History The US Government HOPES You Never Learn!


"Income taxes are by far the most horrible of the taxes as they punish you for producing and creating wealth. After all, if the purported reasons for sin taxes such as alcohol and cigarette taxes is to de-incentivize people from drinking and smoking, what do you think an income tax does?" -- Robert Taylor

US Senator: Obama Made Mistake Having Pushed for Assad’s Resignation

US President Barack Obama made a mistake when he insisted on the immediate resignation of Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad, US Senator Tim Kaine said. "I think when the President said Assad must go it was probably a little bit of a mistake. He got ahead of himself when he said those words," Kaine told MSNBC. The senator pointed out that Washington was also involved in the regime change in other Arab countries, including Iraq, Libya and Egypt. "When the United States has tried to say who the leader of another country should be in this region, we usually have not done a very good job at it," Kaine said. According to him, having called for Assad’s resignation Obama raised some expectations in Syria and then he did not follow through because "he realized the limits of America’s ability to change a regime." Having criticized Obama’s policy Kaine pointed out that Congress shared responsibility for the "chaos in the Middle East".

Non-Violent Resistance: A Palestinian Call for “Unarmed Warfare”

Behind the headline news of clashes between Palestinian youths and armed Israeli soldiers, Israel has – as ever – been quietly tightening its grip on Palestinians’ lives in the occupied territories.

Ben Carson’s History Book Plagiarizes SocialismSucks.Net And Many Other Sources

Several sections of potential Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson’s 2012 book America the Beautiful were plagiarized from various sources, BuzzFeed News has found.

In many cases Carson cites the works that he plagiarizes in endnotes, though he makes no effort to indicate that not just the source, but the words themselves, had been taken from different authors.

The case is similar to a 2013 report from BuzzFeed News that found Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul plagiarized in his book while citing the works he copied in the footnotes. Paul’s book was eventually updated to include attribution.

Ben Carson's book is full of plagiarism and could be pulled from shelves

Ben Carson has yet another problem in the honesty department. After a week in which many of the claims he's made in his books about his personal life in his various books have been exposed as phony, the issue has been compounded by the fact that long sections of one of the books have been copied and pasted from other people's work. The issue is serious enough that the publishing house is now being forced to reconsider the books based on their apparent plagiarism. Carson's 2012 book, America the Beautiful, contains instances of plagiarism from at least three different sources, including one conservative website and two books written by other authors.

The 12-member jury found Arthur Topham guilty of one count of wilful promotion of hatred, and not guilty of the second count of promoting hatred.

Crown will be asking for bail restrictions and sentencing has been stayed until further notice.

Energy minister: Ukraine to continue electricity imports from Russia as and when necessary

"Electric energy is being delivered to Crimea according to applications. We do not see any great problems here because the Russian side pays for necessary delivery volumes. The contract is valid," the minister said. "As for energy supplies to Ukraine, the contract will be valid until year’s end. Deliveries for Ukraine’s energy system are made as and when necessary… The Ukrainian side has applied for energy supplies from November 1 to 12. The Russian side is ready to make the deliveries in accordance with the contract as the need arises. These are normal relations to the extent, which is required. It is impossible to say that someone has halted the delivery or anything else has happened," Novak explained.

Genocide organizers in Ukraine to go on trial in Odessa and Donbas — Russian IC

Andrey Lysenko, the spokesperson for the Presidential Administration of Ukraine, has accused Russia of preparing a full-scale international provocation. "We rarely react to numerous accusations, which the Ukrainian authorities are pounding on Russia, but we cannot but respond to what Lysenko said about Russia’s alleged preparations for a full-scale international provocation. The answer suggests itself," Vladimir Markin, the Russian Investigative Committee spokesperson, told TASS on Thursday in a comment on Lysenko’s words. "Judging from experience of investigative work, a criminal who admits the fact of committing a crime and remembers its details is going to plead guilty sooner or later despite the ongoing accusations of his victims. But the Nazis sitting in Kiev and genocide organizers in Donbas should not dream of being tried in the comfortable Hague. They will go on trial in Odessa, the towns and cities of Donbas and also in Kiev that will come back to its senses," Markin said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Remember China-gate from 1996? Then President Bill Clinton authorized the sale of sensitive US technology to China and Chinese money was donated to his re-election campaign!

Was Hillary playing the same game, selling US secrets delivered via a private server with weaker security than the Ashley Madison website in exchange for "donations" to her "charitable" foundation?

It is time to look past the server itself to what may be the biggest spy scandal in US history!

There he goes again.

In recently proclaiming Hillary Clinton free of any national security breach
– even as the FBI was continuing its investigation of her use of a potentially
risky private email server for official business while she was Secretary of
State – President Obama continued his disturbing pattern of rendering
his personal verdict ahead of legal proceedings in high-profile cases involving classified government information.

Thanks to everyone who is donating. Many donations have come in from anonymous benefactors using money orders with no identification and no return address. I send thanks to all donors, electronic for electronic and paper for paper (if you did not get a thank you note, blame the post office) but I wanted to make a public thank you to the people who wished to remain concealed, and I fully understand why. So, thanks you to all you unsung Rivero's Rangers out there! Together we may yet stop this rush to war before we wake up with a mushroom cloud in our front yards!

Police Kept This Video of a Cop Shooting Into a Car Full of Unarmed Teens a Secret, Until Now

City lawyers successfully convinced a federal judge to put the video under the protective order, which prevented parties to the lawsuit from releasing it publicly. However, after watching the video, Retired Cook County Judge Andrew Berman was so disturbed that he leaked it to The Chicago Reporter. Neither Berman nor the Reporter are subject to the order.

“I’ve seen lots of gruesome, grisly crimes,” said. Berman. “But this is disturbing on a whole different level.” In March, the teens won a federal lawsuit against the city and three police officers, using the video as the center of their case. The city has yet to pay out the $360,000. According to The Chicago Reporter,The city’s Independent Police Review Authority, known as IPRA, has not completed its investigation of the incident 18 months later. FBI officials would neither confirm nor deny a Chicago Sun-Times report that the agency is investigating the shooting.

Gery Shalon, Joshua Samuel Aaron and Ziv Orenstein, all from Israel, were charged in a 23-count indictment with alleged crimes targeting 12 companies, including nine financial services companies and media outlets including The Wall Street Journal. Prosecutors said the enterprise dated from 2007, and caused the exposure of personal information belonging to more than 100 million people. “By any measure, the data breaches at these firms were breathtaking in scope and in size," and signal a "brave new world of hacking for profit," U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara said at a press conference in Manhattan.

The DOJ only just recently got around to addressing the widespread warrantless use of Stingray devices by both of these agencies. DEA agents are hooking up with prostitutes at "sex parties" while on the clock and receiving bonuses rather than suspensions or pink slips. The US Marshals Service has been acting as a law unto itself, confiscating cell site simulator records to keep them out of the hands of FOIA requesters, flying its own airborne cell tower spoofers and blowing asset forfeiture funds on $10,000 conference room tables.

EU puts pressure on Macedonia to accept 20 000 refugees

EU puts pressure on Macedonia to accept 20 000 refugees, according to Macedonian media trends which point out that the pressure increased during the very last few days.

Brussels has such an attitude even though President Gjorge Ivanov in Brussels recently showed that Macedonia has no intention to accept refugees for a longer period.

Macedonian President was categorical, recalls that his country can only accept up to 2,000 refugees can stay in Macedonia for up to 72 hours.

The authorities in Skopje have been informed that they should prepare to accept refugees for a longer period, at least during the winter. It will be immigrants from Afghanistan, while other refugees continue the path towards the EU.

The problem is that neither Macedonia nor the EU have an agreement with Afghanistan on the return of Afghan nationals.

NATO to Expand Nordic Presence to Counter Russian 'Aggression'

Non-NATO members Finland and Sweden welcomed NATO’s intention to strengthen its military presence in the Nordic region.

NATO will boost its military profile in the Nordic region primarily through more numerous and visible joint exercises with the Nordic Partnership for Peace cooperation states Sweden and Finland, Defense News reported.

"It makes sense to deepen our cooperation further, not alone among our Nordic allies and partners, but also with our Baltic allies," NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said during two days of talks between Nordic and Baltic defense ministers in Stockholm.

According to Stoltenberg, NATO’s move to deepen its military presence in the Nordic region is justified by what the alliance considers to be Russian aggression in the east and its increased activity in Baltic Sea, Defense News reported.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, Sec Gen Stoltenberg, but what Russia "aggression" are you talking about?!?

IT was the US, NATO and IMF which destabilized Ukraine last year, and installed Poroshenko in an election as crooked as a dog's hind leg.

Apparently, you didn't get the memo from Victoria Nuland that this is what the US did last year.

And if I got it, why didn't you, please Mr. Secretary?

As reported at informationaclearinghouse.info last February:

US Assistant Secretary of State for Europe, Nuland said: “Since the declaration of Ukrainian independence in 1991, the United States supported the Ukrainians in the development of democratic institutions and skills in promoting civil society and a good form of government - all that is necessary to achieve the objectives of Ukraine’s European. We have invested more than 5 billion dollars to help Ukraine to achieve these and other goals. ” Nuland said the United States will continue to “promote Ukraine to the future it deserves.

Crimea, understanding that the legitimate government in Kiev had been overthrown, had an honest referendum by which they petitioned the Russian Federation to accept their membership in it, and that petition was accepted by the Russian Federation.

Russia has done nothing wrong here, Mr. Secretary.

But in spite of all your assertions that "Not in any way does NATO seek confrontation with Russia", your actions and deployments telegraph that this is precisely what you are looking to do; create a military conflict with Russia.

Police Torture and the Real Militarization of Society

There is a rhetorical expression that the police use to justify throwing a person to the ground and handcuffing them. “The subject became uncooperative.” When a person walks away from the cop and gets shot, the rhetorical expression is: “I felt threatened.” But there is a momentous assumption that the cop makes in either case. That is that he can play the role of a commanding officer, as if in a military institution, and the civilian on the street must respond with the obedience of a platoon member. Only in the military is the requirement for “cooperation” that absolute.

A number of homeschool parents in Florida have been ordered by a public school district to register their children in classes within three days or face “criminal prosecution” under state law.

A meeting within the next week likely will determine whether school officials will face a lawsuit in response to the threat.

The issue is being addressed by the Home School Legal Defense Association, which said its members in the Santa Rosa County School District received letters demanding information that parents are not required to provide under state law.

The information included Social Security number, race and grade level.

The parents also received a letter demanding they comply with a new district policy requiring them to show proof of residency and to prove they no longer were registered in whatever district they most recently had been under.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To forbid parents from home schooling only demonstrates that the Florida education system is really scared to death that the homeschoolers will do far better than will public schooled kids.

I hope this case goes all the way to the Supreme Court, and is successful for homeschooling parents.

United Nations Slams Israel Over Child Prostitution Epidemic

Israel has no clear strategy for addressing child prostitution within its borders, according to a UN report, which says that sex offenders there are not sufficiently prosecuted and punished.

In the wake of the scathing report from the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child, a source told Israeli newspaper Haaretz that despite growing awareness of the problem, helping juvenile prostitutes "still falls between the governmental cracks."

The report also said the number of investigations into people suspected of sex crimes against minors is low to start with, and only a small percentage of those cases actually go to trial.
Moreover, even when convictions are obtained in child prostitution or pornography cases, the sentences don't always match the severity of the crimes, the report said. It recommended instituting stiffer sentences for obtaining sexual services from a minor, Haaretz reported.

Israel suspends diplomatic dialogue with EU over settlement product labeling

Israel on Wednesday suspended its diplomatic dialogue with the European Union in response to the EU's adoption of new guidelines for placing special labels on products produced by Israeli companies over the Green Line - in the West Bank, the Golan Heights and east Jerusalem. As part of the policy, such items produced beyond the Green Line will no longer be allowed to carry a 'Made in Israel' label in EU countries.

The Foreign Ministry summoned the European Union’s Ambassador to Israel, Lars Faaborg, for a discussion on the new settlement labeling guidelines on Wednesday.

"During the meeting, Foreign Ministry representatives informed the ambassador that because of the recent EU decision, Israel is suspending its diplomatic dialogue with the EU in various forums in which it has meetings scheduled in the coming weeks," the Foreign Ministry stated.

On Veterans Day, Who Should Thank Whom?

However, for a very long time, American wars have only been foreign wars. None of these wars (especially not the most recent ones) have been in defense against foreign conquest of our homeland. Rather, the wars were themselves invasions and conquests of the homelands of others.

Moreover, the wars have not diminished, but multiplied our foreign enemies. They have toppled non-threats, like Iraq’s Saddam Hussein and Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi, and created new actual threats, like Al Qaeda in Iraq, which evolved into ISIS and Syrian Al Qaeda.Amid the chaos that U.S. wars have created, such groups have thrived and grown explosively.

Since foreign wars are inimical to domestic freedom, it is those who strenuously oppose war who are actually fighting for freedom. If not for opponents and skeptics of war, we would have even more war than we do. And in that case, individual freedoms would have been even more infringed upon.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let me make this clear: I respect each and every American in uniform. I have family and friends from church who are serving, so this is very personal for me. Peace through military strength: I get it.

What I do NOT respect, and against which I argue (peacefully, fervently, and logically) is a civilian US government which appears to have abandoned any notion of peaceful, good will negotiation as a method to achieve a positive outcome in geopolitical conflicts.

Particularly after 9/11, this country's leadership has baptised itself, and bathed, in the blood of war as the only possible resolution to geopolitical issues.

And at 66 years of age, I recognise, very clearly, that the wars of aggression in which the US government and its military have been mired since 2001, and in which they continue to be mired, in places like Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Somalia, and Yemen, are not about "defending the American homeland and way of life", but about protecting the supremacy of the US petrodollar, and private US corporate profits.

Those in the US government, shilling for more and more wars, for example with countries like Russia and China, understand this completely.

And of course, it is never their kids who will be killed and maimed for life, physically and psychologically; it will be other people's kids, and that is perfectly fine with them.

But there will be a tipping point, where this false narrative will collapse of its own weight, and the truth will ring out like the loudest bell in the world for even the most jingoistic of my American brothers and sisters; these wars do not make us more safe; if anything, these wars for profit and the dollar make us less safe, more vulnerable, more broke, and more apt to be marginalized for having had the courage to tell the truth. (Mike and I are acutely aware of the price to be paid on that last one).

The question is if this tipping point will happen before or after the US is militarily defeated, ignominiously, by larger powers which have had enough of these pre-emptive wars, or after an horrific economic crash in this country, which will destroy life as we know it?!?

Only time will tell. But it is time for Americans to start thinking very seriously about what these wars of aggression have actually done for them; and the short answer is, absolutely nothing, except to further bankrupt the US government.

We have new pharmaceuticals being introduced every year for fictitious and nonsensical diagnoses such as Mathematics Disorder, Intermittent Explosive Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, Orthorexia Nervosa (healthy eating) and so many other inventions called diseases for the sole purpose of selling more drugs. In what many critics are calling lunacy of unimaginable proportions,…

UN wants Australia to stop forced sterilization of disabled, improve treatment of asylum seekers

Australia's forced sterilization program of disabled persons is being examined by the UN, along with its behavior towards asylum seekers. It comes after member states harshly criticized the country's treatment of refugees at offshore detention centers.
The review is taking place ahead of the United Nation's Universal Periodic Review (IPR) of Australia, which the organization says is a “cooperative process” that “reminds states of their responsibility to fully respect and implement all human rights and fundamental freedoms.” This is the second time Australia has faced a period review by the organization, which looks at every country's record once every four years.

The UN is due to hand down its report into the human rights review on Thursday, according to the Guardian.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I knew a little about the brutal treatment of illegal asylum seekers in Australia; I had no idea about Australia's forcible sterilization of its disabled, however.

But I would be willing to bet, on that latter issue, that somewhere in hell, Josef Mengele is smiling!!

Severe Storm Pounds Western States, Moves East

On a stretch of highway in Douglas County, Colorado, morning commuters were slipping and sliding as they tried to navigate icy road conditions.

Meanwhile, an hour west of there, up to 12 inches of snow fell in the mountains of Colorado just in time for the opening of Copper Mountain ski resort.

"We got seven inches of snow overnight, but it is clearly still snowing so we are looking probably close to a foot at this point," Copper Mountain spokeswoman Steph Sweeney said.

"But again it is still coming down, which we are very excited about," she added. "We couldn't ask for a better opening day."

SINCE TURKEY JOINED THE U.S.-LED COALITION to fight ISIS, its military actions have struck far more Kurdish Workers Party (PKK) targets than ISIS targets, leading many to suspect that the government is using ISIS as an excuse to reignite the civil war against the PKK and intimidate the Kurdish population.

Critics argue, further, that Turkey’s failures to combat ISIS are calculated, given the Islamic State’s repeated attacks on Kurdish targets, such as the Suruc bombing last July and the Ankara bombing last month.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan escalated his anti-PKK rhetoric last week, saying on Wednesday, “Turkey will continue its fight against Kurdish insurgents until every last militant is liquidated,” in his first major presidential address since his Justice and Development Party (AKP) won reelection on November 1. The announcement led to an almost immediate end to a month long ceasefire, igniting deadly clashes that have killed almost 200 since last week alone.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is about to generate a great deal of geopolitical awkwardness between the US and Turkey. As reported at the Huffington Post this morning:

Some 7,500 peshmerga fighters are closing in from three fronts in an effort to take control of the town and cut off a strategic supply line used by the Islamic State militants.

Mr. President, you had better get Secretary Kerry on a plane, right the hell now, headed for Ankara, and set up some boundaries for Turkish President Edrogan,who is apparently drunk on the cork of his own electoral success a couple of weeks ago.

IF the US is going to be in a successful relationship with the Peshmerga in beating back ISIS in Iraq (or Syria), there has to be a political rapprochement between the Kurds and the Turkish national government.

The solution is not military here; at the end of the day, it has to be political, with many hard-won, good faith negotiations, period, end of discussion.

Impressive storm response in Carlin

On Monday, Nov. 2, it started snowing in Carlin. Lots and lots of huge, wet flakes. It snowed like that all evening. As we prepared for bed, we were startled by a loud boom ... a transformer had blown. It's 10:45 at night and our electricity was out --boy was it going to be a long night.

We would be the first group of our entire City to lose power by 1 am. The sounds of that night were very scary. Trees branches snapping, heavy snow falling on our roofs, electrical lines arcing, flashing lights throughout the neighborhood.

'Flagrant Violation': Saudi Jets Continue Attack on Hospitals in Yemen?

As the Saudi-led alliance, backed by the United States, continues its bloody operation in Yemen, targeting hospitals and clinics, Common Dreams reports Wednesday.

Houthi followers take part in a rally denouncing the Saudi-led air strikes in Yemen's capital Sanaa November 6, 2015
Saudis, Allies Proclaim Victory in Yemen, Analyst Says It's Not Over Yet
According to the publication, Saudi jets on Sunday repeatedly shelled the Al-Thawra hospital, considered one of the area’s most important health care facilities, providing medical assistance to 50 patients daily. The attack was carried out just weeks after another significant facility – a Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) clinic – was reportedly attacked in the northern city of Haydan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In this indiscriminate bombing of hospitals and medical clinics, the Saudi government and military leadership have demonstrated that they have the morals of a dead tree stump, which means they have absolutely no morals whatsoever.

But what is more worrying to me than the actual bombings is that their US governmental and military enablers seem to have signed off on this practice,which means that the extrajudicial assassination of sick civilians is perfectly acceptible to our Nobel peace prize-winning President Obama.

Is this the price President Obama thinks is acceptible, in civilian casualties for throwing out the Houthi rebels in Yemen, and, by Saudi proxy, reinstating our thug, Al-Hadi?!?

IS it just me, or is there something terribly wrong with this picture?!?

Federal Reserve Admits It Has NO IDEA What It’s Doing

Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen is stressing the need to review the unconventional monetary policies that central banks around the world deployed in response to the 2008 global financial crisis.

She said Thursday that the post-crisis period offers policymakers an opportunity to assess the effectiveness of the tools and better understand the impact of new regulation.

“Policymakers have to carefully weigh the advantages and disadvantages of alternative monetary implementation frameworks in the presence of new policy tools,” Yellen said in remarks at a two-day research conference sponsored by the Fed.

Translation: We have no idea what’s going on, or whether or policies are helping or making things worse.

Army Vet Faces Felony For Helping Other Veterans Treat PTSD With Cannabis

Even though more states are legalizing medical marijuana, and federal officials have claimed that the prosecution of pot smokers is no longer a priority, the “war on drugs” continues to destroy the lives of Americans suffering from dire medical conditions.

Sean Kiernan is a U.S. Army veteran from Rancho Santa Fe, California, who, along with his wife, pleaded guilty earlier this year to felony charges related to growing marijuana for other veterans.

Kiernan attempted suicide in 2011, nearly becoming part of a horrifying statistic: Although the figure is disputed, some estimates suggest that an average of 22 veterans commit suicide each day. Still struggling two years later, Kiernan was involuntarily committed by officials at a Veterans Affairs hospital, an experience which he says led him to embrace the benefits of cannabis over pharmaceutical drugs.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is an on-going travesty, adding insult to injury for American Vets.

The anti-psychotic drugs which are the standard prescribed fare by VA doctors have a thoroughly documented track record of nasty side effects, including homicidal or suicidal thoughts, which may well get acted upon.

And if you don't believe that, because you still believe that "orthodox medicine is always right, and would never hurt anyone", you need to read the following:


It's all about profits, and never about patient health or safety, when it comes to the pharmaceutical/industrial complex.

VA leadership, collectively, needs a cerebrectomy to finally champion something which is far safer for our Vets in terms of side effects than the pharmaceutical drugs for trauma and PTSD.

Ben Carson Wants Jail Time For Health Care Fraud -- Except For Friends

Republican presidential contender Ben Carson has maintained a business relationship with a close friend convicted of defrauding insurance companies and testified on his behalf, even as the candidate has called for such crimes to be punished harshly.

Pittsburgh dentist Alfonso A. Costa pleaded guilty to a felony count of health care fraud after an FBI probe into his oral surgery practice found he had charged for procedures he never performed, according to court records.

Though the crime carries a potential sentence of up to 10 years in federal prison, Costa was able to avoid prison time after Carson helped petition a federal judge for leniency.

That's different from the position Carson took in 2013 as he prepared to launch his presidential campaign, saying those convicted of health care fraud should go to prison for at least a decade and be forced to forfeit "all of one's personal possessions."

Webmaster's Commentary: 


IF one of those "same values and principals" Dr. Carson cherishes, and finds so "bonding" is defrauding the government by billing for services never performed, do we truly want this guy in the White House?!?

Revealed: Virginia cops Tased handcuffed man 20 times in 30 minutes before he died

Police in South Boston, Virginia broke their own rules and tased a man multiple times, then reneged on a planned trip to the hospital, before he died in their custody, MSNBC reported.

Newly-released footage shows three officers using the devices against 46-year-old Linwood Lambert while he was handcuffed both in front of a local hospital and in a patrol car. The Tasers were used 20 times over the course of a 30-minute period.

The officers — identified as Cpl. Tiffany Bratton and Officers Travis Clay and Clifton Mann — took Lambert to the hospital. The footage shows Lambert running toward the facility as soon as he was let out of the squad car. After he runs into the hospital door, the officers use their Tasers. Lambert quickly falls to the ground.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you live in the state of Virginia, now might be a really decent time to move out; if you have been thinking about visiting, or organising some kind of conference or symposium there, just don't.

With Virginia police killing uncharged suspects with impunity,just being in this state can be lethally hazardous to one's health.

Canadian researcher targeted by hate campaign over Fukushima findings

Jay Cullen never expected the world of hate he encountered when he began to post scientific information about the impact of the Fukushima accident on the Pacific Ocean.

Criticism was anticipated – but then he started getting death threats.

After the Japanese nuclear reactor melted down in 2011, following an earthquake and tsunami, fears arose that radiation would pollute the Pacific and spread to Canada’s West Coast.

To address those concerns, which didn’t go away even after ocean scientists reported relatively low levels, Dr. Cullen started a radionuclide-monitoring program in 2014.

Thirty-five years later, that man, Michael Jon Hand, was tracked to a small town in Idaho where he has been living under the name of Michael Jon Fuller.

White House Objections Stop ISIS War Authorization Vote

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D – NV) was even more direct, saying he in general doesn’t believe in authorizations for war, and believes that the president has “all the power he needs” to unilaterally launch and carry out wars without any Congressional involvement. That appears to be the White House’s position as well.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Reid and the White House are both wrong. Under the Constitution, only Congress can declare war. That provision is in there specifically to prevent a sitting President from starting a war on his own. Canceling the Congressional vote is being done so that incumbents won't face an America angry at them for more wars in next year's elections. Obama isn't running, so he can take the blame all to himself by taking the role of dictator.

Burr has demanded that the Obama administration return to his committee every copy of the 6,700-page torture report compiled by his predecessor, Senator Dianne Feinstein. Copies of the report, a 500-page summary of which was made public last year, were in December 2014 distributed to offices at the Pentagon, CIA, and State Department.

A federal immigration program created to help American companies hire foreign workers with special skills has been overrun with applications by outsourcing firms, and in the process, has cost U.S. citizens employment opportunities.

Each year in April, immigration officials accept applications for H-1B visas, which are awarded through a lottery system. Each year, 85,000 are granted. Increasingly large global outsourcing companies have flooded the system with applications, according to The New York Times, boosting their odds of getting H-1Bs and diminishing those of individuals trying to get one. One firm, Tata Consultancy Services, obtained 5,650 of the available visas last year.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With a just government, the loophole allowing this to happen would be fixed.

However, I would be reasonably sure that various of our alleged Congressional representatives are being " financially encouraged" by the large companies which do this, making obscene profits in the process of taking away American jobs, not to allow that to happen.

Virginia man who died in police custody tased repeatedly, new video shows

Linwood Lambert, 46, was tased over 20 times in thirty minutes by police the night he died, according to Joe Messa, an attorney for the Lambert family. Lambert's sister, Gwendolyn Smalls, filed the $25 million wrongful death lawsuit against police this summer.

"There is no circumstance under any standard where anyone should be tased the number of times or the length of time that Mr. Lambert was tased," Messa told USA TODAY Network.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Contrary to the propaganda, tasers are NOT "non-lethal". Cardiologists have stated that if that high voltage shock hits your heart at the right moment in the beat cycle, the heart will go into fibrillation and the victim will die.

Israeli officers disguised as Arabs burst into West Bank hospital, kill Palestinian

Israeli security service operatives infiltrated a hospital in the Palestinian West Bank on Thursday, killing a bystander while attempting to detain a suspect who allegedly carried out a stabbing, local sources say.

Jehad Shawar, director of Al Ahly Hospital in the West Bank city of Hebron, told Palestinian radio around 30 men arrived at the scene in two vans and entered the hospital building with a person pretending to be pregnant, Reuters reports. The Israeli forces infiltrated the hospital to arrest a Palestinian named Abdallah Azzam al-Shalalda, 27, who allegedly stabbed an Israeli settler near Hebron two weeks ago.

CCTV footage from the hospital shows armed men, all dressed as Arabs, some of them bearded or covering their faces, bursting into the corridor, aiming guns at medical personnel.

Chinese Scientists Unveil New Stealth Material Breakthrough

A group of scientists from China may have created a stealth material that could make future fighter jets very difficult to detect by some of today’s most cutting-edge anti-stealth radar.

The researchers developed a new material they say can defeat microwave radar at ultrahigh frequencies, or UHF. Such material is usually too thick to be applied to aircraft like fighter jets, but this new material is thin enough for military aircraft, ships, and other equipment.

Today’s synthetic aperture radar use arrays of antennas directing microwave energy to essentially see through clouds and fog and provide an approximate sense of the object’s size, the so-called radar cross section. With radar absorbent material not all of the signal bounces back to the receiver. A plane can look like a bird.

“Our proposed absorber is almost ten times thinner than conventional ones,” said Wenhua Xu, one of the team members from China’s Huazhong University of Science and Technology, in a statement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This will certainly be a game changer in terms of weapons and defense; but even though the research is published, I wonder, in terms of actual development, how long it will take for the US military to embrace some version of this technology?!?

“Radiation is Good for You!” and Other Tall Tales of the Nuclear Industry

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission is considering a move to eliminate the “Linear No-Threshold” (LNT) basis of radiation protection that the U.S. has used for decades and replace it with the “radiation hormesis” theory—which holds that low doses of radioactivity are good for people.

The change is being pushed by “a group of pro-nuclear fanatics—there is really no other way to describe them,” charges the Nuclear Information and Resource Service (NIRS) based near Washington, D.C.

“If implemented, the hormesis model would result in needless death and misery,” says Michael Mariotte, NIRS president.

Having exposed the world yesterday to the 2-mile long line of tankers-full'o'crude heading from Iraq to the US, globally the glut is becoming gargantuan. While the crude oil tanker backlog in Houston reaches an almost unprecedented 39(with combined capacity of 28.4 million barrels), as The FT reports that from China to the Gulf of Mexico, the growing flotilla of stationary supertankers is evidence that the oil price crash may still have further to run, as more than 100m barrels of crude oil and heavy fuels are being held on ships at sea (as the year-long supply glut fills up available storage on land). The storage problems are so severe in fact, that traders asking ships to go slow... and that is where we see something very strange occurring off the coast near Galveston.

And unlike the last oil price collapse during the financial crisis only half of the oil held on the water has been put there specifically by traders looking to cash in by storing the fuel until prices recover.

Accused Illegal Voter Was “Confused” Says Attorney

The DHS Is Getting A Wearable Radiation Detector

The easiest way to detect nuclear material is typically when it's already too late. By the time seismographs, infrasound sensors, and radiation readers pick up on a blast, it’s already happened. Catching a nuclear weapon before it goes off is a lot trickier, which might be why the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is looking at some rather unconventional ideas. The latest: a small, wearable radiation detector. Think of it like a FitBit, only instead of telling its user about calories burned, it lets them know if they’re close to any nuclear weapons.

John Kerry, US secretary of state, has warned that December’s Paris climate change talks will not deliver a “treaty” that legally requires countries to cut their carbon emissions, exposing international divisions over how to enforce a deal.

The EU and other countries have long argued that the accord due to be reached next month should be an “international treaty” with legally binding measures to cut emissions. But in an interview with the Financial Times, Mr Kerry insisted the agreement was “definitively not going to be a treaty”.

Paramilitary Police in Miami Force Passengers to Leave Plane at Gunpoint

Some 70 flights were delayed and nine were diverted as a result of the lockdown, which shut down two concourses for almost three hours.

Officials claimed the cause of the lockdown was a breach in procedure by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), which allowed a passenger who had been flagged as having a suspicious carry-on bag to board the plane. A TSA spokesman added that “in the process of transitioning other passengers to an adjacent screening lane, standard procedures were not adhered to and the passenger was allowed to depart the checkpoint and proceed into the terminal.”

The Federal Bureau of Investigation later admitted that the passenger was a dentist, and that the “suspicious” bag he had been carrying contained nothing more than fillings and other dental supplies.

Terrorist activity in Russia has fallen by more than 10 times over the past five years, including in the long-troubled North Caucasus region, show Interior Ministry statistics released on Thursday. Ten-month figures to October this year charted 1,615 terrorist crimes in Russia, said Vladimir Makarov, deputy head of the Russian Interior Ministry Department for Combating Extremism. "According to information provided by the National Anti-Terrorism Committee, as of October 1 the number of terrorist crimes decreased by 2.3 times on the same period last year," he said. "Not a single terrorist attack was allowed to happen," the official added.

Russia, North Korea sign agreement to prevent dangerous military activity

Under the draft, posted on the website of the Russian Cabinet of Ministers, the sides intend "to show extra caution and good sense in the activity carried out close to the territory or positions of the armed forces of the other state". The document commits each of the sites to taking necessary measures aimed "to prevent hardware and personnel from getting into the territory of another state due to force majeure circumstances or as a result of unintended activity". Under the document, "the sides take all possible measures to promptly stop and settle peacefully any incidents that may emerge as a result of dangerous military activity, without resorting to threats to use force or using it," the draft document said. It also said the agreements "will not affect the rights and commitments of the sides on their other existing international agreements and right to self-defense," and said the agreement was not aimed against any third state.

The coming campus revolution

We may be seeing the beginnings of a full-blown campus revolution. Not a revolution based on actual oppression, but a revolution stemming from perceived oppression and a desire to attain victimhood status.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When I was a kid, people wanted to be heroes. They wanted to accomplish things. They wanted to excel.

Today, driven by daytime TV and Israel's own example, people see greater incentive to play the victim, to whine and stay as they are, hoping for sympathy expressed as political or monetary advantage. Constantly, those who play the politics of victimhood insist it is no shame to be a victim, and indeed have crafted a media image that it is somehow heroic. This is not unlike the medieval priests who told the serfs that suffering at the hands of the nobility was the pathway to heaven after death!

But being a victim is not heroic. Fighting to not be a victim is heroic. Being a victim is indeed shameful if one allows oneself to be a victim or even encourages it for political and monetary gain or even because it makes them feel good about themselves to be a victim.

But think on this for a moment. A nation of people who want to be victims is the dictator's dream, because a nation of people who want to be victims will not oppose the dictatorship, because they have been taught to embrace their own slavery as a positive personal trait!

More than 1,100 tons of food delivered to troubled Donetsk, Luhansk

The 44th humanitarian convoy arriving from Russia’s Ukraine-bordering Rostov region brought in the troubled region mainly food that was distributed equally between the two self-proclaimed republics. From August 2014, Russian humanitarian convoys have delivered in Donbas more than 53,500 tons of aid.

Obama’s Double-Standard on Leaks

There he goes again. In recently proclaiming Hillary Clinton free of any national security breach — even as the FBI was continuing its investigation of her use of a potentially risky private email server for official business while she was Secretary of State — President Barack Obama continued his disturbing pattern of rendering his personal verdict ahead of legal proceedings in high-profile cases involving classified government information.

Big-Pharma Seeks Monopoly Over Life-Changing Therapy

By Tony Cartalucci

By dangling life-changing cures over people’s heads for cartoonish figures of “1 million dollars,” pharmaceutical corporations prove when they see sick, desperate, dying people, all they see is dollar signs…

Gene therapy is a game changer. It is not a treatment for diseases. It is a cure...

Portugal: Democratic Coup

The Portuguese Government (minority) composed by the coalition of the right-wing neo-liberal PSD (Social Democratic Party), now far removed from social democracy, and the conservative Popular Party, has been defeated just weeks after taking office. The minority right-wing coalition only managed to get 107 members of parliament out of 230, the opposition parties (Socialists, centre-right; PCP - Communists; PEV- Greens; Left Block; PAN - Naturalist Party) having 123 members. The neo-liberal project in Portugal, backed by the ratings agencies and by the European Union, is over. If the right-wing coalition states it has the power to govern because it was the most-voted coalition, the fact remains that if it has 107 seats and the opposition to its left has 123, then it cannot claim to have a consensus. We are seeing a revolution in European politics. It is called democracy. It is now in the hands of the Portuguese President, Mr. Aníbal Silva, to decide what to do.

Another Paid-for Protest? #MillionStudentMarch Campus Uprising Has George Soros Written All over It

Have you figured it out by now that somewhere up the food chain this entire highly scripted, highly organized, national committee-led "movement" is not just some natural "grassroots campaign" concocted by a few pissed off college students buried in loan debt, but instead is a bought-and-paid for protest-in-a-box ala George Soros' phony color revolutions?

Don't get me wrong. Do I wish my student loan debt was canceled? Sure. Do I wish my kids could go to college for free? That'd be swell. Would $15/hour minimum wages be nice for everyone? Gee, you bet.

But socialists never answer this question: who do they really think will end up paying for it all?

Because it isn't going to be billionaires like George Soros.

Amnesty International accuses China of torture disregarding Guantanamo

International human rights organization Amnesty International accused China of practicing brutal torture. AI researchers published a report that said that Chinese security forces still use electric batons and chairs during the torture of suspects or perpetrators. According to The Guardian, the information was obtained by human rights activists as a result of interviews with 40 Chinese lawyers. The report also said that beatings and other methods of physical and psychological violence is also used against detainees in China. Noteworthy, the Chinese leadership adopted legislation to limit the use of torture in the country, although Amnesty International found the law "unconvincing". Meanwhile, experts from many countries of the world have repeatedly tried to draw attention of the international community, including the UN, to facts of torture behind the walls of the US prison at Guantanamo Bay.

The European Union is Crumbling Right Before Our Eyes

Ever since the European debt crisis, the EU has been playing a game of whack-a-mole with its constituent nations. Whenever one crisis is “solved,” another crisis will pop up somewhere else. None of these problems are ever truly solved though. They’re simply contained until further notice, because there are always more pressing issues to deal with. And there are always more pressing issues, because crises that were previously contained start to bubble over again. As you can see, it’s an endless feedback loop of failure, and it’s constantly compounding itself.

Shopper 'gobsmacked' to see M&S staff removing trolley-loads of food from the shelves because it is 'out of date'

A shopper was left gobsmacked after seeing trolley-loads of food at a newly opened Marks & Spencer store being taken from shelves – because staff weren’t allowed to reduce products in the first two weeks of trading.

Although the store insists the food was not sent to landfill, charity worker Natalia Glover claims she was told by staff at The Broadway Shopping Centre outlet in Bradford, West Yorkshire, that the food was ‘going in the bin’.

Charities have now criticised the store, saying the food could have been donated to help to feed hungry people in the area.

If Catalonia is not Spain, then what is Catalonia?

"There are local industrial corporations behind the supporters of independent Catalonia. They are concerned about national stability. They are opposed to "Europe of regions" project - a policy of Western European states based on the principles of Atlantic federalism. They are opposed to the policy of open doors for transnational corporations, nor do they want to sign a secret agreement on transatlantic cooperation with the United States. I think Europe will continue falling apart, and I don't think that the European Union has a powerful tool to stop this," Yuri Solozobov, Director for international projects at the Institute of the Russian National Strategy told Pravda.Ru.

Will Obama Give Israel Even More American Weapons and Dollars To Kill Palestinians?

President Obama met with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu on November 9 in the White House and is considering the Israeli request to give a 50% increase of nearly $1.5 billion in U.S. military funding bringing the US donation to the killing of Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza to $4.5 billion a year.

Four US Firms With $4.8 Billion In Debt Warned This Week They May Default Any Minute

The last 3 days have seen the biggest surge in US energy credit risk since December 2014, blasting back above 1000bps. This should not be a total surprise since underlying oil prices continue to languish in "not cash-flow positive" territory for many shale producers, but, as Bloomberg reports, the industry is bracing for a wave of failures as investors that were stung by bets on an improving market earlier this year try to stay away from the sector. "It’s been eerily silent," in energy credit markets, warns one bond manager, "no one is putting up new capital here."

The 60-Second Summary Of Europe's Latest Crisis

Since the creation of the European Union, and its mutant cousin, the common currency Eurozone, it seems that Europe has been in a state of constant crisis... which, as a very prophetic AIG presentation foresaw has been precisely the point from day one. But while Greece is no longer a source of stress, now that the insolvent Mediterranean country gave up and conceded its sovereignty to its European overlords, Europe now finds itself in what many say is a far more serious crisis - one in which the cultural sovereignty of Europe itself is at risk from an unprecedented wave of mideast migrants which are entering the continent by the thousands every single day.

British experts gave security at Sharm the all-clear just WEEKS before the Russian jet disaster, claims Egyptian governor

British experts gave security at Sharm el-Sheikh airport the all-clear just weeks before the Russian holiday jet disaster, a senior Egyptian official has claimed.

Khaled Fouda, the governor of South Sinai province, said UK officials had made regular visits to the airport all year and did not raise concerns about safety.

His claims echo those of Egyptian president Abdel Fattah al-Sisi who said British inspectors had assessed the terminal and found security to be 'good enough' ten months ago.

Mizzou fraud fest: KKK alerts, poo-swastika tales implode

The world now knows why University of Missouri activists needed “muscle” to remove inquisitive reporters from their “safe space” on Monday: Their leaders love to run with unsubstantiated rumors.

Concerned Student 1950, which helped bring down the university system’s president Timothy Wolfe, has not fared well since its protest victory. Media professor Melissa Click has resigned her courtesy appointment after threatening school photographers, Student Body President Payton Head had to apologize for a false Ku Klux Klan sighting and there appears to be no evidence a “feces swastika” was smeared in a campus dormitory bathroom.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I told you that KKK tweet smelled fishy!

Europe refugee crisis: EU wants Africa to take back migrants

The European Union pressed African leaders on Wednesday to take back thousands of people who do not qualify for asylum, as overwhelmed Slovenia began building a razor-wire border fence to keep migrants at bay, raising tensions with neighbouring Croatia.

Sweden, struggling to manage the influx too, became the latest EU nation to announce the introduction of temporary border controls, as of Thursday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The refugees were supposed to blur Europe into one mass of people with no identity, to set the stage to be merged with the rest of the world. But it has blown up in their face and Europe is coming apart!

Investigation into rancher’s shooting death criticized

BOISE, Idaho
It was a meeting with more questions than answers, but it was a start.

A small-town Idaho sheriff faced a standing-room-only crowd of about 300 at a town hall meeting Tuesday to address the Nov. 1 shooting death of a well-known rancher at the hands of two deputies. It was a strong turnout for Council, whose population is about 800.
The first question of the night was about the safety of the deputies when their names are released. The sheriff said he remains concerned — and he noted that he has received threats and had a photo of his house and address posted on social media.

“I am not going to do that to these deputies,” he said.

People in the crowd responded swiftly:
“The day will come. The day has to come.”

Detroit Radio Show Booted by Pro-Israel Network for Blatant Antisemitic Broadcast

Kim Stewart: You can find this article, “The Maps Tell the True Story,” on whatreallyhappened.com. It is interesting in many ways. I know that growing up, my father was a WWII veteran. And the stories that he told me completely are the opposite of what we hear in news media today… But this story of Israel and Palestine is a fascinating one. And if you look at the maps, it’s kind of, I don’t know any other word except “incriminating.” The article says: “The truth is that, far from being the poor victim it likes to portray itself as, Israel is in fact the most aggressive and belligerent nation in the region, having invaded pretty much everyone it shares a border with. The following maps show just who is wiping who [sic] off the map.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Click here for the article that got this radio program kicked off the air. Then tell us again how Israel doesn't control the US corporate media!
