Terra In-Firma: Circle of Fire Preparedness

So, the earth shakes. Everything contemplated, while calm, quick-morphs into panic. Keep it simple -- getting out of the Twin Towers was a strong survival move.

Get out of a shaking building, if you can, and away from falling masonry. Help others.

A distillate of Doug Copp's hands-on, debris-sifting experience follows, with detailed recommendations:

Queuing to flee Gaza: Palestinians line up at border with Egypt as tit-for-tat rockets and air strikes continue

Hundreds of Palestinians desperate to escape Israel's bombardments in Gaza have been queuing to cross into Egypt.

Thousands of homes in the Gaza Strip have been destroyed or damaged in the conflict and nearly 500,000 people have been displaced in the territory where Palestinians, citing Israeli attacks that have hit schools and mosques, say no place is safe.

Israeli air strikes killed at least five Palestinians in the Gaza Strip and militants kept up their rocket fire on southern Israel on Monday, witnesses and officials said, as Egypt pressed on with efforts to broker a durable truce.

Egypt And United Arab Emirates Said To Have Secretly Carried Out Libya Airstrikes

Over $455,000 Seized from Medical Marijuana Patient Slapped with Civil Asset Forfeiture

In March 2013, Steve Oates' home in Goodyear, Ariz. was stormed by police, SWAT, and DEA agents because of a marijuana grow room in the guest house.

"It was like something you see in the movies. It was 6:30 in the morning, and basically you hear 'bang! bang! bang!' on the door, and next thing you know you hear the crash of a battering ram," says Oates.

Oates' doctor had recommended medicinal marijuana for Oates' chronic back pain, so he attained a medical marijuana card with cultivation rights. Dispensaries were still few and far between at the time, and Oates didn't trust Craigslist for his medicine.

Faked James Foley beheading to demonize Islam

Knowing the past history of western governments, media and Hollywood propaganda ploys to demonize Muslims and Islam, I had doubts about the recent beheading of American journalist James Foley 40 was also a photo-studio trick to fool the public. My suspicion became more and more solid as I read the FBI, CNN, BBC, FoxNews, International Business Times, Global Post, New Yorker, National Israel Times, and the rest of Jewish propaganda empire tried to prove that the video showing the beheading of James Foley was genuine.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The beheading might be genuine, but even if it is, that does not tell us who was really responsible, only who we are supposed to think did it.

By way of deception and all that!

The hypocrisy is stunning. Bombing from the air, waterboarding (and worse) are all "clean" and as American as apple pie, but beheading is barbaric and we should all get riled up about it!

Could James Foley have been murdered by ISIS a YEAR ago? New claims from Assad regime over footage of beheading

Murdered American journalist James Foley was killed a year ago after first being sold by the US-backed Free Syrian Army to his killers, it was claimed today.

Bouthaina Shabaan, President Bashar al-Assad's official spokesman, said that the Islamic State was an ‘extension’ of the Free Syrian Army, the rebel group which led the uprising against the [Syrian government] three years ago.

She said the United Nations had 'information' that the photojournalist was beheaded last year.

She added: ‘Isis [now Islamic State] is only an extension of what was happening right from the first day in Syria.

VIRTUAL 9-11: Will the US & Israel Hack The US Banking System Computers and Falsely Blame It On Iran (or Syria or Russia or China)?

So what it looks like is being planned, and pre-sold to the American people with all these stories about celebrities' personal information being hacked and made public (an activity that produces no profit for the hackers other than news headlines), and the "Syrian" (nudge nudge wink wink) hack of the AP Twitter feed that shocked the US stock market, is that the US Government will itself take down the US financial computers, and blame it on Iran /Russia/ China/Al Qaeda/Syria/Arabs and others to be named as convenient. This gets Wall Street and Washington DC off the hook, because now the financial melt-down is an act of war, rather than the result of decades of Wall Street crime and corruption and the predations of Private Central Banks. US banks have already been hit with cyber attacks, to set the stage.

Webmaster's Commentary:

In the pictures, she posed next to Palestinian detainees.

The Old World Order

The immediate and obvious point to make here is that readers should/must immediately become deeply suspicious any time we are bombarded with a label which contains the word “new”. Implicit in every such label (by definition) is the concept that “this time it’s different”, because if it wasn’t different it wouldn’t be “new”.

“This time it’s different” is a cliché in Western societies. But it’s not revered as an aphorism of wisdom. Rather, it is scorned as the mantra of idiots. This same point was made in a previous commentary which debunked and rejected the ludicrous propaganda euphemism: “The New Normal”. The same analysis applies to both propaganda lies.

NEVER AGAIN MEANS JUST THAT! ~~ HOLOCAUST SURVIVORS CONDEMN ISRAEL’S ACTIONS IN GAZA

In a statement, the network said the letter was written in response to an ad campaign in which Elie Wiesel, a Holocaust survivor and Nobel Prize laureate, compares the murder of children during the Holocaust to Hamas’ actions in Gaza.

“We are disgusted and outraged by Elie Wiesel’s abuse of our history in these pages to justify the unjustifiable: Israel’s wholesale effort to destroy Gaza and the murder of more than 2,000 Palestinians, including many hundreds of children. Nothing can justify bombing UN shelters, homes, hospitals and universities. Nothing can justify depriving people of electricity and water,” the letter reads.

It concludes: “’Never again’ must mean NEVER AGAIN FOR ANYONE.”

WHAT IF THERE IS A 'BANG' INSIDE THE UNITED STATES?

Most people, myself included, are of the opinion that such an event will be another fake terror attack, like 9-11, to be blamed on the target of the pending invasion but actually carried out by the US and Israel. According to a recent poll, a majority of Americans hold that view of 9-11 itself. After the lie about stolen incubators that tricked us into the first invasion of Iraq and the lie Saddam's nuclear weapons that tricked us into the second invasion of Iraq, prudence demands we expect more of the same from our "leaders."

But for the hard core true believers, the men and women so scared of the US Government that they will not even allow the merest hint of doubt or question to enter their minds, lest their souls be eternally damned, the ones so wrapped in the flag that all the blood to their brains has been cut off, I will tell you what another big "bang" inside the US is likely to mean to them.

A big "bang" means the Department of Homeland Security is a total failure.

Former Israeli AG: Our government staged the assassination of Al-Daif

In the biggest blow to Israeli propaganda, which claimed that Hamas broke the ceasefire, former Israeli Attorney General Michael Ben Yair has said that "it was Israel who staged the alleged Hamas breach of the ceasefire in order to create the conditions for assassinating Muhammad Al-Daif, Commander-in-Chief of Hamas's military wing, Al-Qassam Brigades.

The website of Makor Rishon newspaper said that Ben Yair, who also worked as a judge in the Israeli supreme court, tweeted on his twitter account the following: "There is no agreement and hostilities have been renewed, but who is the culprit? Hamas who wants an agreement with accomplishments or Israel who staged the breach of the ceasefire in order to justify the assassination of Muhammad Al-Daif?"

“For me, personally, Arabs are something I can’t look at and can’t stand,” a 10th-grade girl from a high school in the central part of the country says in abominable Hebrew. “I am tremendously racist. I come from a racist home. If I get the chance in the army to shoot one of them, I won’t think twice. I’m ready to kill someone with my hands, and it’s an Arab. In my education I learned that … their education is to be terrorists, and there is no belief in them. I live in an area of Arabs, and every day I see these Ishmaelites, who pass by the [bus] station and whistle. I wish them death.”

CDC Whistleblower Links MMR Vaccine to Autism; Story Promptly Censored

A CDC whistleblower involved in a pivotal study defending official assurances of vaccine safety broke his silence to expose how the study he was involved in massaged the data to cover-up a 340% increase in autism risk for African American children under age three who received the MMR vaccine. William W. Thompson, PhD. was escorted out of CDC headquarters a few days ago, and presumably fired from his position, after being identified as the whistleblower.

For his part, Thompson told the Autism Media Channel, who released a video on his revelations, that he was tired of lying.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, looks like the "conspiracy wackos" (Reg. Trademark the White House) were right all along. There is a link between vaccinations and autism. CDC knew it and suppressed it, and now that a whistleblower has confirmed it, the corporate media is out to bury the story.

What this means is that not only can you not trust the CDC and corporate media to tell you whether vaccines are safe or not, but you cannot trust them when they claim GMOs are safe, that it is okay to eat the fish from the Gulf of Mexico, a little radiation from Fukushima might actually be good for you, and the Ebola vaccine works, so you should go buy it right now!

Abolish the TSA

Recently, there has been a public backlash against new airport screening procedures. Passengers rightfully object to scanners that reveal their naked bodies, and to enhanced pat-downs that would be considered sexual assault anywhere else.

John Tyner summed up this backlash perfectly: "Don't touch my junk!"

We object to these new procedures. They are just the latest symptoms of a series indignities imposed upon us since 9/11, such as . . .

Being forced to remove belts and shoes when screened
Seeing toothpaste and nail clippers confiscated

The underlying, absurd logic is that if you intend to board an airplane, you sacrifice your Fourth Amendment rights against unreasonable searches and seizures. The right to travel—as fundamental a right as there is in a free society—has been turned on its head.

---

Even when the TSA tries to be helpful, it humiliates us. For instance, the TSA's PreCheck program is designed to speed people through security checkpoints.

6 Realities of the Secret World of Paid TV Audience Members

Much to the consternation of the world's laugh track aficionados (hi, you two!), most game shows, talk shows, and sitcoms are still filmed in front of a live studio audience.

Sure, people like Jon Stewart can pull in a crowd, but who the hell are all these people laughing at Jay Leno's terrible jokes?

Airborne transmission of Ebola - updated

The American public has been misinformed regarding human-to-human transmission of Ebola. Assurances that Ebola can be transmitted only through direct contact with the body or body fluids of victims needs to be seriously scrutinized in the wake of the current West African outbreak. The Canadian Health Dept. states that airborne transmission of Ebola is strongly suspected and the CDC admits that Ebola can be transmitted in situations where there is no physical contact between people, i.e.: via direct airborne inhalation into the lungs or into the eyes, or via contact with airborne fomites which adhere to nearby surfaces, where individuals are separated by 3 feet. That helps explain why 81 doctors, nurses and other healthcare workers have died in West Africa to date. These courageous health care providers use careful CDC level barrier precautions such as gowns, gloves and head cover, but it appears they have inadequate respiratory and eye protection.

Israel's Genocidal Killing Machine

War without mercy is official Israeli policy. Rule of law principles don't matter.

Throughout its entire history, Israel waged genocidal war on Palestine.

Its 1947-48 War of Independence prioritized an exclusive Jewish state with no Arab presence.

Strategy was by any means possible. It included mass murder, destruction and forced displacement.

According to historian Ilan Pappe, Israeli policy involved "large-scale intimidation; laying siege to and bombarding villages and population centres; setting fire to homes, properties and goods; expulsion; demolition; and finally, planting mines among the rubble to prevent any of the expelled inhabitants from returning."

Israel's dirty war took six months to complete. It was a walkover. It forcibly displaced about 800,000 Palestinians. It murdered many others.

It destroyed 531 villages and 11 urban neighborhoods in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Haifa and other cities.

Libyan capital under Islamist control after Tripoli airport seized

Libya has lurched ever closer to fragmentation and civil war this weekend after Islamist-led militias seized the airport in the capital, Tripoli, proclaimed their own government, and presented the world with yet another crisis.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Although the corporate media can be counted on to fling around words like "Islamist" and "militant", what is really going on in Libya today is a repeat of Iran in 1979. The Libyan people are tired of their US puppet rulers and kicking them out, as is also happening right now in Iraq. The crisis is that all these invasions by the US over the last decade are actually about forcing the world to trade resources such as oil and metals only for the US dollar, from which the US gets a mafia-like "piece of the action" to prop up its collapsing economy. Such a deal is an all or nothing arrangement. No nation can be left to trade resources in currencies other than the dollar as other nations will buy from them as prices will be lower without the added percentage going to the US (either in products and produce given to the US for dollars or interest on dollars borrowed from the federal reserve). This is why the US is having to go back into Iraq for a third time, and will now have to go back into Libya. And why ultimately the US will start wars with Russia and China to remove the competition of the more attractive Ruble and Yuan. This is why young people are being killed and crippled across the globe right now; to prop up that paper dollar.

The UK Times reported that an international forensic science company, which has worked for police forces across Britain, said there is no question Foley was beheaded but that camera trickery and post-production techniques look to have been used.

“I think it has been staged,” said one expert in visual forensics, after he was commissioned by The UK Times to examine the footage.

Red Cross wins aid convoy battle

Russia’s East Ukraine humanitarian aid convoy had to crash the border to get the badly needed supplies into Lugansk today.

The security concerns for the Red Cross were the last hold up, and as expected, Kiev shelled the area overnight knowing that the Red Cross could not move under those conditions. Putin decided that the fooling around time was over and made the call to go in. God bless the man... the statesman once again.

I had been delaying writing this column for a few hours while awaiting the results of the closed-door UN Security Council meeting on Ukraine’s claims of having been invaded by a humanitarian aid convoy. I had prepared material about the “little green men” hiding in the flour bags, and the special midget Spetsnaz units that Putin had been saving as a secret weapon.

VICE founder, famous for truth telling, has history of lies

“Who’s heard of Vice Media? Wild, interesting effort to interest millennials who don’t read or watch established media. Global success,” tweeted Rupert Murdoch after a meeting with Smith.

Murdoch’s not the only media executive to meet with Smith — representatives from Hearst, Time Warner, Bertelsmann, Condé Nast, and even Google and YouTube have all met with him. Many have partnered with Smith.

But Smith already has a well-documented reputation for stretching the truth.

“The lie that launched an empire,” reads a section title in Smith’s Globe and Mail profile, referring to his penchant for overstating VICE’s value.

“Vice was built on lies,” Wired Magazine echoed in 2007.

ISIS Threatens America: ‘We Will Raise The Flag Of Allah In The White House’

The terror group President Barack Obama threatened to strike in Iraq Thursday evening is itself threatening to strike the American homeland

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This reeks of stolen incubators and Saddam's nuclear weapons.

At present there is only this one image found by Google of the threat made to fly the flag of Allah over the White House.



It is rather small, just 150x150 and I started wondering why this was the largest image of what is being promoted as the new Adam Gadahn. So I found the original video and grabbed a screencap from that.

Take a close look at the top of the beard and how sharp it is. It looks fake to me. This person's cap is slightly too small and looks brand new. His shirt is clean and pressed, also looking new. The vest he is wearing is not body armor but simply a belt of pouches sand serves no other purpose than to make him look "military" for the cameras.

This is yet another fake to sell us yet another war in Iraq, no different than the stolen incubator hoax that tricked us into the first Iraq war or the lies about Saddam's nuclear weapons that tricked us into the second. And frankly I do not think it will get much traction because for a lot of Americans ANY new flag flying over the White House looks like an improvement! :)

UPDATE: The US media is now replaying the Boco Haram, gambit, claiming that ISIS is kidnapping helpless women to commit horrible acts upon their bodies, like forcing them to watch reruns of The Hollywood Squares. The video being shown is very shaky, blurry, and overly compressed; dead giveaways that they don't want anyone to be able to take a close look for inconsistent details.

UPDATE: As it turns out, our caution with the story about ISIS saying they will raise the flag over the White House was well-founded. VICE media, the source of this story, has a long history of lies and deceptions!

UPDATE: I am bumping this to the top because there is a very heavy-handed online campaign to promote VICE News as the new go-to news source on the internet.

Obama’s ‘New World Order’ Quote Will Creep You Out Even If You’re Not a Conspiracy Theorist

The Washington Post‘s Chris Cilliza highlighted this excerpt [emphasis added]:

“But whether people see what’s happening in Ukraine, and Russia’s aggression towards its neighbors in the manner in which it’s financing and arming separatists; to what’s happened in Syria — the devastation that Assad has wrought on his own people; to the failure in Iraq for Sunni and Shia and Kurd to compromise — although we’re trying to see if we can put together a government that actually can function; to ongoing terrorist threats; to what’s happening in Israel and Gaza — part of peoples’ concern is just the sense that around the world the old order isn’t holding and we’re not quite yet to where we need to be in terms of a new order that’s based on a different set of principles, that’s based on a sense of common humanity, that’s based on economies that work for all people.”

Thousands marched in Staten Island today. They were protesting police brutality and abuse. They were demanding justice for the victims of that abuse. Eric Garner was placed in an illegal choke hold by a NYPD office several weeks ago. His crime? Selling illegal cigarettes. Despite his protestations and his repeated plea of “I can’t breathe,” despite the fact that he was already subdued, despite the fact that he was surround by cops, the officer continued to choke Mr. Garner. The result? Eric Garner died on the sidewalk, a victim, like so many others, of out-of-control police brutality. These police crimes are then followed by a disturbing lack of transparency and a failure of the justice system to indict, try and convict. Victims are invariably people of color.

Dr. Brian Hooker: Father of Vaccine-damaged Child and His Relentless Pursuit to Expose Fraud at the CDC

Health Impact News is not exclusively an outlet for news on the dangers of vaccines. It is one of many topics we cover that the mainstream media typically does not. However, we are in the midst of one of the most significant news events of the century, and as of the time of this writing, the mainstream media has completely ignored it.

That will change.

As we have already reported, a top researcher employed by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has come forward as a whistle-blower, confessing to his participation in actively covering up data that clearly links vaccines to autism. (See: CDC Whistleblower: CDC Covered Up MMR Vaccine Link to Autism in African American Boys)

Starve or surrender: Cut off all food and water to Gaza, says Israeli general

Israeli Major-General Giora Eiland has urged that all food and water be cut off to Gaza’s nearly 1.8 million Palestinian residents – a major war crime and precisely the “starve or surrender” policy which the United States has condemned when used in Syria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Back in 1948, the Soviet Union blockaded the highway that connected West Berlin with West Germany. Their goal was to starve the West Berliners into abandoning their own government and accepting Soviet rule through the proxy of East Germany. Then too, the strategy was :surrender or die." The world responded to this crime by mounting the Berlin Airlift, which for over a year flew in food, medicine, and other needed supplies to keep West Berlin alive until the Soviet Union relented and allowed the highway to reopen.

Why are we not seeing the same response when Israel does the same thing to Gaza?

With much to hide, Israel is running scared

It seems that Israel will not be cooperating with a panel set up by the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) to investigate possible war crimes committed by the Israeli army in the Gaza Strip. Israel’s Foreign Ministry is bitterly critical of the probe and the panel, claiming that the findings of UNHRC’s investigations are predetermined, while the prime minister and the foreign minister announced that UNHRC long ago became the ‘Terrorists Rights Council’ and a ‘kangaroo court’.

The Israeli position towards UNHRC is not surprising considering the UN body has found Israel guilty in the past.

U.S. Sends Second Carrier to Asia Amid Tensions with China

The Navy is sending a second aircraft carrier strike group to the Asia Pacific region amid new tensions with China over a dangerous aerial encounter between a Chinese interceptor and Navy P-8 surveillance craft.

The strike group led by the USS Carl Vinson departed San Diego for the Pacific on Friday, the Navy said in an announcement of what it terms a “planned” deployment.

China’s military on Saturday, meanwhile, demanded an end to all U.S. monitoring flights and called U.S. criticism of dangerous Chinese jet maneuvers false.

Bonhomme Richard flight deck unfit for flight operations, could delay next deployment

The USS Bonhomme Richard will likely miss its next underway deployment after a botched $3 million resurfacing of the amphibious assault ship’s flight deck.

The ship had undergone the resurfacing less than a month ago.

“A recent application of non-skid coating on the flight deck of the USS Bonhomme Richard was not up to Navy safety standards and is being reapplied,” Cmdr. William Marks, spokesman for 7th Fleet, said in an email to Stars and Stripes. “This will cause an increase in port time and decrease in underway days for Bonhomme Richard.”

"Drugs That Cause Parkinson"

Parkinson caused by the antipsychotic drugs has been recognized since the early 1950s. These drugs include the older major tranquilizers such as Haldol, Prolixin, Stelazine and Thorazine, the newer major antipsychotic drugs such as Risperdal, Orap, and Zyprexa, and drugs used for nausea, vomiting, and acid reflux such as Compazine and Reglan. The drugs have in common an ability to block dopamine receptors in the brain. In effect, they cause Parkinson symptoms by making the receptors unavailable to the brain's own dopamine.

USA created Ebola virus as biological weapon?

It turns out that there is a vaccine against Ebola. Pentagon scientists were developing it for 30 years, and all the rights for the drug belong to the government of the United States. Two infected US medics received injections of the vaccine and they started recovering from the disease immediately.

Why has this been made public only now? Why is it the USA that holds all the rights for the use of the vaccine? There can be two most obvious answers found to these questions.

As one can see, Ebola is a perfect biological weapon: it spreads quickly and gives nearly 100 percent mortality. Those having the life-saving vaccine can dictate any conditions to others.

The second answer is a purely commercial interest. It is enough to arrange panic with the help of the media, as it was the case with several epidemics before, such as avian flu. Afterwards, it will be possible to sell the life-saving medicine at any price.

Israel Retracts False Claim Regarding Alleged Hamas Rocket Base

Israeli officials retracted this morning their earlier claim on Friday that the rocket that killed a four-year-old child in Southern Israel was launched from an UNRWA school in the Gaza Strip.

The Israeli news reports that the rocket was launched from an UNRWA school were false. The same media outlets that rushed to report the incident without seeking confirmation from UNRWA are required and called upon to also report the Israeli army retraction.

Rights before weapons for Vietnam

Earlier this month, Senator John McCain indicated that it was time for the United States to consider selling lethal weapons to Vietnam after a 30-year embargo. The recent maritime standoff between Beijing and Hanoi over Chinese oil exploration off the central coast of Vietnam exposed Hanoi’s many strategic weaknesses.

Providing Vietnam with coast guard and maritime systems as a first step - and eventually radar, fighter aircraft and spare parts for leftover American military equipment - would bolster Hanoi’s strategic capabilities vis-a-vis China and give substance to the "comprehensive partnership" announced last year between Hanoi and Washington.

“The Right To Exist” – States or People?

It is a curious phrase this “right to exist”. Israel wants the world to accept its “right to exist” as a state, but it denies the indigenous Palestinians their right to exist as a people in their own land. International relations only acknowledges the rights of people, not states. [1] States exist because of the formal recognition afforded them by other states, and now that Israel is recognised as a state, it in fact exists. It makes no sense to demand that a political party recognise Israel’s “right to exist”, much less punish 4 million Palestinians because a majority voted the Hamas Party into government. Yet, these are the very words that are holding the Palestinians, particularly those in Gaza, to an impossible ransom.

“The Russian Aggression Prevention Act” (RAPA): A Direct Path to Nuclear War with Russia

The Russian Aggression Prevention Act”, introduced to Congress by U.S. Senator Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), will set the US on a path towards direct military conflict with Russia in Ukraine.

Any US-Russian war is likely to quickly escalate into a nuclear war, since neither the US nor Russia would be willing to admit defeat, both have many thousands of nuclear weapons ready for instant use, and both rely upon Counterforce military doctrine that tasks their military, in the event of war, to preemptively destroy the nuclear forces of the enemy.

Looming Mining ‘Tsunami’ Set to Take Africa by Storm

Rapidly growing countries such as Russia, India, Brazil and China, as well as established, industrialized including Canada and Australia, have plowed billions into mining developments in Africa in recent years. In 2009 China alone invested more than $100 billion each year in mineral extraction, a four-fold increase since the turn of the century. According to data from Global Forest Watch, between 2001 and 2013 alone the DRC lost more than 5.8 million hectares of forest – a swath of land larger than the Netherlands.

The study’s authors point out the enormous opportunity afforded by this influx of cash. Mines can provide much-needed employment, and accompanying infrastructure development in the form of roads and rail lines could help connect farmers to markets, incentivizing increased agricultural yields and encouraging higher incomes through participation in national and regional economies.

Late Wednesday afternoon many thou sands of people marched across the Brooklyn Bridge in a strong show of solidarity with Gaza and with Ferguson, Missouri where the police appear to be at war with the residents of that city. The people of Gaza have reached out to the people of Ferguson pointing out that they both may be afflicted by teargas manufactured by the same American company. At about 6:30 the marchers began across the bridge starting at the Brooklyn side. There was a sea of Palestinian flags for as far as the eye could see and shouts of “Free, Free Palestine”. The marchers were of every age, race, and ethnicity and many carried signs declaring their solidarity with Palestine and saying that the U.S. government did not speak for them in supporting what Israel was doing by sending money and arms to Israel.

Israeli F-16 Missile Attacks Venezuelan Humanitarian Aid Mission in Gaza

Venezuelan ambassador to Egypt, Juan Antonio Hernandez, said Wednesday that an Israeli aircraft attacked the Venezuelan humanitarian delegation in Rafah along the border post between Egypt and Palestine. The delegation was delivering twelve tons of aid to the Palestinian people. No one was injured during the attack.

The F-16 airplane dropped a missile very close to the humanitarian site, though it did not explode. The ambassador confirmed that the missile fell approximately 50 to 70 meters from the site.

El Universal reported that Roni Kaplan, the spokesperson of the Israel Defense Forces, asserted that “there was no attack by the Israeli forces on the Egyptian side of Gaza. The air force has not attacked nor launched sound bombs to any humanitarian convoy on its way to Gaza from Egypt.”

The main question is whether Kiev has already perceived the full extent of the threat or whether they will continue to place their hopes in the West. If Poroshenko has already grasped the whole picture and will not wait for a disaster on the eastern front in order to recognize the necessity of negotiating – that means Putin’s reminders could serve as the final straw that brings Kiev back to reality. If not – that means we should soon expect to see serious losses at the front, the further decline of the hryvna (Ukrainian currency), the meltdown of the economy, and coercion from Berlin. And there’s no chance that Moscow will just sit idly by and wait.

The Causes of the MH17 Crash are “Classified”. Ukraine, Netherlands, Australia, Belgium Signed a “Non-disclosure Agreement”

On August 8, Ukraine, the Netherlands, Australia and Belgium signed a non-disclosure agreement pertaining to data obtained during the investigation into the causes of the crash of Malaysian Airlines MH17

Live Journal, original Russian

edited by Global Research

In the framework of the 4-country agreement signed on 8 August between Ukraine, the Netherlands, Belgium and Australia, information on the progress and results of the investigation of the disaster will remain classified.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF true, this silence is meant to continue to frame Russia and exonerate Ukraine. As reported in counterpsyops.com on 10 August 2014:

A Thursday article in the New Straits Times, Malaysia’s flagship English-language newspaper, charged the US- and European-backed Ukrainian regime in Kiev with shooting down Malaysian Airlines flight MH 17 in east Ukraine last month. Given the tightly controlled character of the Malaysian media, it appears that the accusation that Kiev shot down MH17 has the imprimatur of the Malaysian state. The US and European media have buried this remarkable report, which refutes the wave of allegations planted by the CIA in international media claiming that Russian president Vladimir Putin was responsible for the destruction of MH17, without presenting any evidence to back up this charge. The New Straits Times article, titled “US analysts conclude MH17 downed by aircraft,” lays out evidence that Ukrainian fighter aircraft attacked the jetliner with first a missile, then with bursts of 30-millimeter machine gun fire from both sides of MH17. The Russian army has already presented detailed radar and satellite data showing a Ukrainian Sukhoi-25 fighter jet tailing MH17 shortly before the jetliner crashed. The Kiev regime denied that its fighters were airborne in the area, however. The New Straits Times article began, “Intelligence analysts in the United States have already concluded that Malaysia flight MH17 was shot down by an air-to-air missile, and that the Ukrainian government had had something to do with it. This corroborates an emerging theory postulated by local investigators that the Boeing 777-200 was crippled by an air-to-air missile and finished off with cannon fire from a jet that had been shadowing it as it plummeted to earth.” It cited “experts who had said that the photographs of the blast fragmentation patterns on the fuselage of the airliner showed two distinct shapes—the shredding pattern associated with a warhead packed with ‘flechettes,’ and the more uniform, round-type penetration holes consistent with that of cannon rounds.”

Court Rules: Companies Can Legally Lie To Workers

A recent decision from the Texas Supreme Court has ruled that at-will employees can’t sue their employer for fraud over the loss of their jobs. In his opinion, Chief Justice Nathan Hecht held that “while an employee can sue an employer for fraud in some situations… [a] claim cannot be based on illusory promises of continued at-will employment.”

In 2002 E.I. du Pont de Nemours announced plans to turn some of its operations into a separate subsidiary. Most of the affected employees were under a union agreement that gave them the right to transfer within DuPont if they preferred, a decision which would have cost the company an enormous amount of money to retrain the transfers and hire their replacements.

Gaza war has cost $2.5 billion so far, says Israel's defense ministry

That amount is just the military cost and does not include the cost to the economy overall

There's a popular phrase, "follow the money," which suggests that if you want a complete picture of a given situation, you need to examine its financial underpinnings.

Journalists don't typically talk about Israel's Operation Protective Edge in terms of money, but there is no doubt it has been very expensive.

Israeli defense officials told Ha'aretz newspaper that as of Wednesday, the operation's cost had surpassed 9 billion shekels ($2.5 billion). Meanwhile, Israel's Finance Ministry believes the cost of the war is closer to 7 billion shekels. This could drastically affect the Finance Ministry`s attempts to stay within its budget goals.

US Media Rules of Reporting on Israeli ‘Operations’ in Gaza

Since Hamas fired its first projectile from Gaza into Israel in 2001, the US establishment media have strictly followed several rules of reporting on the “rockets.” These rules are unwritten. The scriveners and TV news broadcasters may not even think of them as rules. Nevertheless, American mass media reporting on Gaza rockets consistently and predictably follows one absolute, overarching, principle: Israel is always the victim. The rules implement this First Principle. Short are the careers of those who transgress them.

The media faithfully have followed the rules in “Operation Protective Edge.” A reasonable person could fairly describe “Protective Edge” as US-tax dollar funded, Israeli-delivered bombs, tank and artillery shells, missiles, flechette grenades and other explosive devices which sometimes kill dozens of civilians in the Gaza strip a day. No consumer of US mass media will ever hear that description, of course. It offends the First Principle.

Ditching Linux for Windows? The truth isn't that simple, says Munich

Munich city council demonstrated to the world that an organisation employing thousands could ditch Windows and move to Linux and free software.

When the project finished late last year about 15,000 staff at the German authority had been migrated to using Limux, a custom-version of Ubuntu, and OpenOffice.

But is the council's move to open source about to be scrapped in favour or returning to Microsoft?

No says the council, in spite of numerous reports to the contrary. Suggestions the council has decided to back away from Linux are wrong, according to council spokesman Stefan Hauf.

The Beheading: Some Words of Caution

We westerners have a charming and quaint belief that killing people from the air by using bombs, rockets, shells, napalm and cluster munitions – or even nuclear weapons – is somehow not really as bad as ramming a bayonet into an enemy, blowing him to pieces with heavy artillery, or slashing his throat the way sheep are killed.

Air warfare is clean. Air warfare is the American way of war.

Furthermore, on the same day Foley was allegedly being decapitated, 19 people in Saudi Arabia, a close US ally, were publicly beheaded for various crimes. One of the men was executed for witchcraft. There was no outcry at all over this medieval horror. Saudi Arabia is suspected of charging political opponents of the monarchy with drug offenses, which carry the penalty of beheading by a sword-wielding executioner. Not a peep about this in the US media trumpeting the Foley story.

Ruby Ridge REVEALED - "Victim" Vicki Weaver - The UN-DEAD Anniversary Special

Webmaster's Commentary: 

For those who don't remember, the FBI sent an informant over to Randy Weaver to ask him to saw off part of the barrel of a shutgun. The FBI informant just pointed to a part of the barrel and said "here" and Randy sawed it off, not realizing that "here" was 1/4 inch inside the legal definition of a sawed-off shotgun. The FBI hoped that by setting him up for a weapons charge, Randy would be forced to spoy on his neighbors for them, a common trick used by the Soviets. But Randy refused to go along and the FBI charged him, then changed the court date for Randy's while "losing" the notification of the change that was supposed to be sent to Randy. So the FBI was able to issue an arrest warrant for Randy Weaver which led to the standoff at Ruby Ridge. Following the same pattern of "leave nobody alive to contradict the official story", the FBI shot and killed Randy Weaver's wife, Vicky, their son, and wounded Randy and others. Congress held hearings exonerating the FBI for shooting and killing a woman holding a bay while the corporate media demonized Randy ans his family as kooks not worthy of sympathy (as they did following Waco).

Human rights groups call on Israel to allow them entry to Gaza

Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch said the Israeli authorities have denied them entry into the Gaza Strip to investigate allegations of human rights violations using various bureaucratic excuses, the Anadolu news agency reported.

The organisations announced, in a joint statement yesterday, that they had asked the Egyptian authorities to allow them to enter Gaza through the Rafah crossing, but Cairo did not respond to their request.

Assad Policies Aided Rise of Islamic State Militant Group

The Islamic State, which metastasized from a group of militants seeking to overthrow the Syrian government into a marauding army gobbling up chunks of the Middle East, gained momentum early on from a calculated decision by Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to go easy on it, according to people close to the regime.

Earlier in the three-year-old Syrian uprising, Mr. Assad decided to mostly avoid fighting the Islamic State to enable it to cannibalize the more secular rebel group supported by the West, the Free Syrian Army,...

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a real reach. The spin is that Assad is somehow to blame for ISIS, even though they admit that ISIS opposed Assad.

Canadian soldier accused of using female subordinate as ‘open bar’ f

A Canadian Forces warrant officer threw himself into his lawyer’s arms and his friends let out whoops of joy as he was acquitted Friday on a charge of sexually assaulting a female subordinate.

Andre Gagnon, 48, was on trial for the alleged sexual assault of then-corporal Stephanie Raymond in December 2011 at an armoury near Quebec City.

His court martial was overseen by a colonel in front of a panel of five male soldiers who reached the verdict.

NY Times BEX alert - Blamed for ISIS’ Rise in Syria, Assad Is Pushed to Escalate Fight

The extremist militants of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria have attacked Syrian troops with new ferocity in recent weeks, taking over three northeastern military bases, beheading scores of soldiers and seizing new territory.

The jihadist offensive has prompted some panicked supporters of the Syrian government to sharply criticize the leadership, questioning why it appeared to allow ISIS to build a base in the northern Syria province of Raqqa for the last year, while claiming the Syrian Army was fighting terrorism. As far back as June, as ISIS fighters swept back into Syria with American weapons looted in Iraq, Elia Samaan, a government adviser, exclaimed, “Where is our air force?”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Man, the propagandists don't even care if what they say makes any sense at all! Assad had nothing to do with the rise of ISIS. ISIS was (like Al Qaeda) a creation of the US, funded by the US and trained by the US in Jordan.

They are pushing way too hard on this.

US Begins Selling "Syria Intervention" Using ISIS Pretext

In a previous report titled, "Growing Mayhem - US Operating on Both Sides of Syrian-Iraqi Border," it was reported that (emphasis added):

Clearly, the answer, left for readers to arrive at on their own, is that these "successful" US airstrikes in Iraq must be carried over into Syria - where mission creep can do the rest, finally dislodging the Syrian government from power after an ongoing proxy war has failed to do so since 2011. After arming and aiding the Kurds in fighting ISIS in Iraq, the US will attempt to make a similar argument regarding the arming of terrorists in Syria and providing them direct US air support to defeat ISIS - and of course - Damascus.

In less than 24 hours, the New York Times would report in its article, "U.S. General Says Raiding Syria Is Key to Halting ISIS," that:

Zim Piraeus drops off tracking system

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Earlier this week, the Zim Piraeus tried a fast one by sailing away from the Oakland terminal and heading out past the Golden Gate bridge, then after the protesters left, doubled back. The protesters came back, and supported by the Longshoremen (who were angered by a union contract violation), blocked the unloading one more time, with the Zim Piraeus only able to unload 2% of her cargo. Yesterday, the ship tracking network showed the Zim Piraeus headed northwest at 16 knots, but it has dropped off the tracking system. Is it simply out of range, or has the Captain shut off the reporting system and even now headed back to Oakland?

Fmr. Homeland Security Adviser: ‘Very, Very True’ ISIS May Have Crossed Border

Joshua Katz, an Army veteran and former CIA operations officer who served as Senior Policy Advisor to the Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee said it is “very, very, true” that ISIS may have crossed the southern border.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obviously this will not go over very well with the pro-illegal immigration agenda, but what is being done here is the creation of a plausible means for the terrorists (nudge nudge wink wink) to have brought the bomb into the US. Personally, I think the weapon is already inside the US and has been for quite some time, either a bomb crafted from some of the Uranium Israel stole during the NUMEC scandal or the missing nuke from the Minot incident.

FLASHBACK - U.S. Suspected Israeli Involvement in 1960s Missing Uranium

Declassified documents from the 1970s provide new evidence that federal officials believed bomb-grade uranium that disappeared from a Pennsylvania nuclear facility in the 1960s was likely taken for use in a clandestine Israeli atomic-weapons program.

The documents, obtained earlier this year through public-records requests by a Washington-based nonprofit group, also indicate that senior officials wanted to keep the matter under wraps for fear it could undermine U.S. Middle East peace efforts.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is estimated that Israel acquired at least 118 kilograms of weapons-grade uranium. 16 kilograms of uranium is enough to make a working nuclear weapon. So Israel acquired enough uranium to make seven bombs. Now the trick of getting a "terrorist" nuclear weapon into the United States is getting it INTO the United States, but Israel started out with enough uranium inside the United States to make 7 bombs, then smuggled all or part of it back to Israel. It would have been trivial for Israel to leave enough weapons-grade uranium inside the US to build a bomb, and there is still the unexplained radiation surrounding Israel's New York Embassy. Getting that weapons-grade uranium is the hard part of building a bomb. Once you have that, the rest is easy. All a uranium bomb does is take two sub-critical pieces of uranium and slap them together. Such a bomb makes for a great means of blackmailing the US government, or staging the ultimate terror false-flag to trigger WW3. Just something to keep in mind while ABCNNBBCBSFOXDRUDGE scream at you that ISIS is going to nuke a US city!

Ferguson: No justice in American police state

There are reports that American police kill 500 or more Americans every year. Few of these murdered Americans posed a threat to police. Police murder Americans for totally implausible reasons. For example, a few days before Michael Brown was gunned down in Ferguson, John Crawford picked up a toy gun from a WalMart shelf in the toy department and was shot and killed on the spot by police goons.

It appears that the murder of Michael Brown did not satisfy the blood lust of the goon thug cop murderers. Less than four miles from Ferguson, goon thugs murdered another black man on August 19. The police claims of “threat” are disproved by the video of the murder. You can see the entire scene much better here. This is a clear case of outright murder of a man by our Nazi Gestapo police. The police then handcuff their dead victim.

Sacramento Ebola test comes back negative

Health officials announced Thursday night that a patient in Sacramento who was thought to have been exposed to the Ebola virus after traveling to West Africa has tested negative and does not have the disease.

Dr. Ron Chapman, Director of the California Department of Public Health, said that a blood sample sent to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention came back free of the deadly virus, which has been ravishing West Africa over the last two months, killing more than 1,100 people.

Handbook: 7 Basic Propaganda Devices

As part of our ongoing effort to expose propaganda techniques, we are posting the propaganda section of the Hasbara Handbook: Promoting Israel on Campus, originally leaked by Wikispooks. It is more than a decade old, as it refers to PLO leader Yasser Arafat, who passed away in 2004.

Propaganda is used by those who want to communicate in ways that engage the emotions, and downplay rationality, in an attempt to promote a certain message. To effectively present Israel to the public, and to counter anti-Israel messages, it is necessary to understand propaganda devices.

This article applies a list of seven propaganda devices to the Israeli situation, and by doing so allows an understanding of some of the ways in which public opinion is fought for in the International arena.

US Top Brass: Striking Syria Back on the Table

Defense Secretary Hagel and Gen. Dempsey indicate willingness to expand US war to Syria

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Okay, Chuck and Marty, if you really feel that way, here are your rifles! Here are your parachutes. We ran out of the desert camo but here are a couple bright day-glo jumpsuits left over from the CIA torture centers. Watch your heads climbing into that transport plane, and we will call Assad and tell him you are on your way to kick his gluteus maximus all by yourself.

But We The People remember how the US Government has been trying to take over Syria using hired mercenaries for the last three years. We The People remember how you lied about Assad gassing his own people to trick us into war, which didn't work because we still remember how you lied about Saddam's nuclear weapons and stolen incubators to trick us into war with Iraq, and we remember how you lied about torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin to trick us into war with Vietnam, and how you lied to us about the Lusitania not carrying weapons to trick us into WW1, and how you lied about a Spanish mine in Havana harbor sinking the USS Maine to trick us into war with Spain ... need I go on?

So you will forgive us if we sit this next war for conquest and enrichment out and keep our children safe at home. But feel free to attack Assad all by yourself, and we will watch safely from home, as you in the government have always done when it was our children being killed and crippled in wars ultimately fought for the bankers!

A LETTER FROM THE WEST BANK ~~ WE ARE ONE WITH GAZA

I have not written much lately and this email maybe personal and hard. Our days start early and end very late. Our nights are also occasionally interrupted by calls from friends in Gaza or others who need some support. In the past 48 hours, over 100 Palestinian civilians were killed by Israeli occupation forces. Many of those are in Rafah. Sometimes I feel guilty that I am affected more by those I know than those who die that I did not know. For example, I cried after I hung-up the phone with Islam, a friend in Rafah who has four children and they can’t sleep and their house shook and windows shattered as missiles rained on homes nearby. I cried because I know him and his handicapped son and his dilemma at whether to try to carry his son and run to the street or not. But then I cried some more thinking of the many innocents who got killed and injured and who I dd not personally know and did not cry for them earlier. Islam and his family will be traumatized for life.

Microsoft's Windows 9: Much ado about little, given cloud shift

In a short-term lens, Windows 9 is critical because:

Microsoft needs to put the Windows 8 launch to bed to get us talking about something other than Vista analogies;
The software giant needs to refine Windows to be both touch and non-touch friendly;
Windows needs to hook into Microsoft's platform and productivity mantra;
And Windows needs to lay the groundwork for a faster development cadence as well as a cloud approach.

In other words, Windows 9's codename Threshold is on target. Windows 9 is the bridge between Microsoft's past of big bang releases and a licensing model to one focused on the cloud, innovation that's easier to consume, and services.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

From Wikipedia: "Cloud computing is the delivery of computing as a service rather than a product, whereby shared resources, software, and information are provided to computers and other devices as a utility (like the electricity grid) over a network (typically the Internet)."

In other words, they are taking computing back to the model of the 1970s where all the software and data are on mainframes and your electronic devices are merely terminals. You are able to access your data and applications only so long as you continue to pay the monthly rental on them. But the real problem is the loss of all privacy as your data is not under your own control but that of large corporations which have a track record not only of cooperating with the government, but of skimping on security to save a few bucks to please the stockholders. As I read the articles about Windows 9 "Threshold", it appears its major selling point is that it is not Windows 8 and has little else to recommend it. his is not the product computer users want, but the product Microsoft demands you will buy.

The good news is that this will invigorate the LINUX and Open Source communities (which may explain why the IRS was targeting Open Source organizations right alongside Obama's political enemies!

Boeing-777 was downed by Ukrainian MiG-29, Romanian expert says

“A surface-to-air missile, with a warhead weighing from 40 to 70 kilos, explodes not inside the object of destruction, but near it, at a distance of 50-100 meters. The detonation of the warhead produces a shock wave that disperses fragments with high velocities. They can puncture the fuselage of an aircraft, but given the size of the Boeing-777 (73 meters long, with a large wingspan), they can not lead to the destruction of the aircraft in separate smaller parts, as it happens with the aircraft that are 7-10 times smaller. Such fragments, when hitting a Boeing-777, can rupture the fuel system of the aircraft. The fuel can spread on the fuselage and wings, setting the whole plane on fire,” said the expert.

FLASHBACK - Chernobyl Exclusion Zone Radioactive Longer Than Expected

Chernobyl, the worst nuclear accident in history, created an inadvertent laboratory to study the impacts of radiation — and more than twenty years later, the site still holds surprises.

Reinhabiting the large exclusion zone around the accident site may have to wait longer than expected. Radioactive cesium isn’t disappearing from the environment as quickly as predicted, according to new research presented here Monday at the meeting of the American Geophysical Union. Cesium 137?s half-life — the time it takes for half of a given amount of material to decay — is 30 years. In addition to that, cesium-137’s total ecological half-life — the time for half the cesium to disappear from the local environment through processes such as migration, weathering, and removal by organisms is also typically 30 years or less, but the amount of cesium in soil near Chernobyl isn’t decreasing nearly that fast. And scientists don’t know why.

FLASHBACK - Fighting Al Qaeda by Supporting Al Qaeda in Syria: The Obama Administration is a “State Sponsor of Terrorism”

A major transition in US counter-terrorism doctrine is unfolding.

While Barack Obama, following in the footsteps of George W. Bush, remains firmly committed to waging a “Global War on Terrorism” (GWOT), his administration is now openly supporting selected rebel units in Syria which are part of the Al Qaeda network.

Known and documented, Al Qaeda is a creation of the CIA, which has covertly supported the “Islamic Terror Network” since the heyday of the Soviet Afghan war.

While Al Qaeda is a US sponsored “intelligence asset”, a “New Normal” has been established.

An Al Qaeda affiliated organization, namely Syria’s Al Nusrah, is being supported “overtly” by the US President, rather than “covertly” by the CIA.

Just two weeks ago, The New York Times Magazine had the temerity to ask, “Has the Libertarian Moment Finally Arrived?” Among the evidence that America is becoming more socially tolerant, fiscally responsible, and interested in shaking things up: rapid increases in the acceptance of gay marriage, pot legalization, and other forms of self-expression; wariness toward our bipartisan interventionist foreign policy; widespread outrage at governmental invasions of privacy; continued antipathy toward Obamacare and declining approval ratings of Congress; and a general lack of belief that spending more money is going to fix the country anytime soon.

Turning America Into a War Zone, Where ‘We the People’ Are the Enemy

Life in the American police state is an endless series of don’ts delivered at the end of a loaded gun: don’t talk back to police officers, don’t even think about defending yourself against a SWAT team raid (of which there are 80,000 every year), don’t run when a cop is nearby lest you be mistaken for a fleeing criminal, don’t carry a cane lest it be mistaken for a gun, don’t expect privacy in public, don’t let your kids walk to the playground alone, don’t engage in nonviolent protest near where a government official might pass, don’t try to grow vegetables in your front yard, don’t play music for tips in a metro station, don’t feed whales, and on and on.

For those who resist, who dare to act independently, think for themselves, march to the beat of a different drummer, the consequences are invariably a one-way trip to the local jail or death.

US general says raiding Syria is key to halting ISIS

"This is an organization that has an apocalyptic end-of-days strategic vision that will eventually have to be defeated," said the chairman, General Martin E Dempsey, in his most expansive public remarks on the crisis since American airstrikes began in Iraq. "Can they be defeated without addressing that part of the organization that resides in Syria? The answer is no."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Okay, Marty, if you really feel that way, here's your rifle! Here's your parachute. Watch your head climbing into that transport plane, and we will call Assad and tell him you are on your way to kick his gluteus maximus all by yourself.

But We The People remember how the US Government has been trying to take over Syria using hired mercenaries for the last three years. We The People remember how you lied about Assad gassing his own people to trick us into war, which didn't work because we still remember how you lied about Saddam's nuclear weapons and stolen incubators to trick us into war with Iraq, and we remember how you lied about torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin to trick us into war with Vietnam, and how you lied to us about the Lusitania not carrying weapons to trick us into WW1, and how you lied about a Spanish mine in Havana harbor sinking the USS Maine to trick us into war with Spain ... need I go on?

So you will forgive us if we sit this next war for conquest and enrichment out and keep our children safe at home. But feel free to attack Assad all by yourself, and we will watch safely from home, as you in the government have always done when it was our children being killed and crippled in wars ultimately fought for the bankers!

Central Banking at Jackson Hole: Simplistic Dialectic, Significant Ramifications

Like Reuters, Bloomberg is a creature of the establishment and you can read Bloomberg editorials (especially) to garner an inkling about how we ought to be perceiving one of the most important dominant social themes of all: Central banking and the endlessly discussed deployment of its monetary arsenal.

In this case, as before – and as we have maintained – central bankers meeting this weekend at Jackson Hole will palaver earnestly but come up with reasons why monetary policy and interest rates should remain fairly "unchanged."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Allowing bankers to control the nation's economy makes as much sense as allowing drug addicts to control the nation's pharmacies! Inevitably, all the ills of the nation end up being treated with placebos.

Things cannot stay the same after Israeli genocide in Gaza

After every bloody episode of violence perpetrated by Israel, media spin doctors are often deployed with one grand mission: to absolve Israel of any responsibility in their acts of carnage.

Not only do these apologists demonize Palestinians, but anyone who dares to take a stand on their behalf. The main staple of this Israeli strategy has been blaming the victim. Such a tactic is nothing new in the way the so-called "Arab-Israeli conflict" has been presented in Western media, whose narrative has been much closer to that of Israeli official and media discourses than that of Palestinians. This continued despite the decades-long military occupation, successive wars, and countless massacres.

DOJ Allows Bank of America to Deduct $12 Billion of $17 Billion Settlement

Bank of America will pay roughly $4 billion less to the government after-tax than the $16.65 billion it agreed to in a settlement over soured mortgage securities, because parts of the settlement will be tax deductible, the bank said Thursday.

A GOVERNMENT THAT LIES

But with regards to the claims about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction, there was no evidence to miss or misinterpret. There could not be, since in hindsight there were no weapons to leave traces of evidence with. The story about weapons of mass destruction was just made up, and fraudulently manufactured "proof" created to support that lie. The mere existence of Tony Blair's dossier, plagiarized from a student thesis, is proof not only that the claims of Iraq WMDs were lies, but were known and conscious lies. Had their been any real proof, it would have been shared immediately between the various war-mongers. There would have been no need for Tony Blair to concoct his discredited Dossier. But, what the public were offered were mislabeled and blurry photos, made up dossiers, and balloon inflators misidentified as mobile biological weapons laboratories (which the British government knew about since they had sold the balloon inflators to Iraq in the first place).

REMEMBER THESE?

But for those who say we haven't found the banned manufacturing devices or banned weapons, they're wrong, we found them. George W. Bush, President Interview with TVP Poland 5/30/2003

We don't want the smoking gun to be a mushroom cloud Condoleeza Rice, US National Security Advisor CNN Late Edition 9/8/2002

How the United States should react if Iraq acquired WMD. "The first line of defense...should be a clear and classical statement of deterrence--if they do acquire WMD, their weapons will be unusable because any attempt to use them will bring national obliteration." Condoleeza Rice, US National Security Advisor January/February 2000 issue of Foreign Affairs 2/1/2000

Rumsfeld: Bin Laden's Mountain Fortress's

Webmaster's Commentary: 

WEBMASTER NOTE: Right now the corporate media is shoveling ISIS at us as hard as they can, in an obvious propaganda campaign reminiscent of the similar campaign about "Al Qaeda" and "Osama Bin Laden" that preceded 9-11. Given how desperate the US Government is to revive the war agenda, we should be concerned that a new false-flag attack, bigger and bloodier than the World Trade Towers, is being considered.

Faked Kuwaiti girl testimony

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This was the hoax used to trick Americans into supporting the first invasion of Iraq. The "nurse" was actually the daughter of the Kuwaiti ambassador, and the incubator story a total fabrication created by PR firm Hill & Knowlton. It is worth recalling because it appears that the US Government is once again prepared to use lies and deceptions to trick the American people into a third invasion of Iraq.

THE LIE OF THE (LAST) CENTURY

There is nothing new in a government lying to their people to start a war. Indeed because most people prefer living in peace to bloody and horrific death in war, any government that desires to initiate a war usually lies to their people to create the illusion that support for the war is the only possible choice they can make.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the story of how the American people were tricked into supporting the second invasion of Iraq, and it is worth remembering as it appears the US Government is trying to lie and trick us into a third invasion of Iraq.

Iceland homeowners get welcome boost

Iceland says it has launched a debt cancellation initiative for mortgage holders which is likely to benefit half the households in the country.

Each debt could see as much as 26,000 euros knocked off the total due. On Sunday, the country’s tax authorities launched the leidretting.is website, where homeowners can file their application. Some 5,000 people registered in the opening two hours, said one of the site’s technical managers.

Illegal alien kills 2 female children and not deported as Obama 'Dreamer'

An illegal alien from Mexico who was convicted of killing two young girls is still being protected by President Barack Obama’s “Dreamers” amnesty decree which stipulates that illegal aliens "brought to the United States through no fault of their own as children will not be deported," according to an "Inside the Beltway" watchdog that investigates and exposes government corruption and criminal activity on Wednesday.

Global warming slowdown 'could last another decade'

The hiatus in the rise in global temperatures could last for another 10 years, according to new research.

Scientists have struggled to explain the so-called pause that began in 1999, despite ever increasing levels of CO2 in the atmosphere.

The latest theory says that a naturally occurring 30-year cycle in the Atlantic Ocean is behind the slowdown.

The researchers says this slow-moving current could continue to divert heat into the deep seas for another decade.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the most scientifically stupid thing to come out of the global warming cult to date!
