The Battle of Our Time: Breaking the Spell of the Corporate State

In late 2010, political activist John Perry Barlow tweeted: “The first serious info-war is now engaged. The field of battle is WikiLeaks. You are the troops.” In the last four years, new insurgencies have arisen from cyberspace to participate in the battle against government corruption and secrecy. From Snowden’s disclosure of NSA mass surveillance to the release of the CIA torture report evidencing war crimes and murder of innocent people, a crisis of legitimacy and moral depravity of authority are becoming increasingly undeniable. All of this reveals an invisible force of governance working to control the thought and perceptions of the greater population for nefarious ends.

WikiLeaks: U.S. worried Israel becoming 'the promised land' for organized crime

The U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv sent a cable to the State Department in May 2009 expressing little confidence in the Israel Police's ability to counter the growing wave of organized crime.

The cable, released on WikiLeaks, said the embassy was taking pains to prevent members of crime families from being issued visas to the United States.

The cable, under the headline "Israel, a promised land for organized crime?" notes that the U.S. Embassy was following Israeli crime families closely and considered them a serious threat to the United States. The embassy has set up a database on the subject with the help of Israeli and American law-enforcement agencies.

"Given the growing reach and lethal methods of Israeli OC [Organized Crime], blocking the travel of known OC figures to the United States is a matter of great concern," according to the cable, signed by James Cunningham, the U.S. ambassador to Israel.

New IRS Rules on Dark Money Likely Won’t Be Ready Before 2016 Election

The Internal Revenue Service says it won't come out with new proposed rules for so-called dark money groups until late spring at the earliest, increasing the likelihood that no changes will take effect before the 2016 elections.

These groups — social welfare nonprofits that can engage in politics, but do not have to disclose their donors — have become a major force in elections, pouring at least $257 million into the 2012 elections. The Wesleyan Media Project estimates that dark money paid for almost half the TV ads aired in the 2014 Senate races.

Snowfall breaks record with more on the way; 50 vehicle crashes reported

The Billings area received a record-breaking 5 inches of snow overnight, and more moisture is on the way, according to the National Weather Service.

But the snowy, icy roads also led to dozens of crashes during the day, both on Billings streets and in both directions of Interstate 90 in the Billings area.

The Billings office of the NWS reported that since midnight, it had measured 5 inches of snow at its West End office, and 5 inches was reported at Billings Logan International Airport. The NWS also received reports of 7 inches of snow in Columbus and 5 inches in Sheridan, Wyo.

He’s the Only Convicted Organ Trafficker in the U.S., and Now He Can Stay

ed note–but remember, it’s not because Judaism promotes lying, theft, criminality and hatred of Gentiles, it’s all because of ZIONISM.

Repeat after me please…Judaism is holy and good…Zionism is the problem…

“If a Jew needs a liver, can you take the liver of an innocent non-Jew passing by to save him? The Torah would probably permit that. Jewish life has an infinite value. There is something infinitely more holy and unique about Jewish life than non-Jewish life.”–Rabbi Yitzhak Ginsberg

Remember as well that if this were a Muslim or a group of them engaged in the very same behavior and were let off the hook, the JMSM would be SCREEEEEECHING at the top of its lungs how the US Justice Department and USGOV had been ‘co-opted’ and ‘taken over’ by Hamas, ISIS, ISIL, the Muslim Brotherhood, Hezbollah, etc, and how the next step was them overthrowing the US Constitution, instituting Shariah law and circumcising young girls.

50-Year-Old White Man Carjacked, Bashed In Head With Hammer 13 Times By 2 Blacks = No Hate Crime, No Media, No Protests

In 2012, A 50 year old white man named Mark Slavin was pulled out of his vehicle by two black men and bashed in the head with a hammer 13 times in Florida. This occurred a short distance from where Trayvon Martin was killed by George Zimmerman, only a month prior. Slavin reportedly died two years later. But his assailants, Julius Bender and Yahaziel Israel, were never charged with murder and were never even charged with a hate crime. The victim's father went to the FBI for help and they told him to get a lawyer. The father also contacted two congressmen and s senator: Congressman Walter Jones, R-N.C.; Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C.; and Sen. Kay Hagan, D-N.C., but they ignored him. No major media outlets have reported on this story. Here is the tragic story of Mark Slavin- that you have never heard.

Two U.S. citizens implicated in failed coup in Gambia

Two U.S. citizens have been charged with taking part in a failed coup last month to overthrow the Gambian government, a botched effort that ended with some of the attackers being killed and others fleeing the small West African country, federal prosecutors announced Monday.

The men, Cherno Njie, 57, of Minnesota, and Papa Faal, 46, of Texas, were part of a ring of approximately a dozen co-conspirators who agreed to participate in the coup that turned bloody, according to a criminal complaint.

In an interview with the FBI, Faal admitted playing a role in the coup and identified Njie, a businessman, as one of the leaders and main financiers of the plot, the complaint alleges. Faal told the FBI that Njie intended to serve as the interim leader of the country after they deposed of 49-year-old Yahya Jammeh, the president of Gambia.

Pensions of Union Workers Cut in Federal Budget

Well, there's something very radical happened that people haven't been talking about very much. Normally a budget is supposed to decide what gets funded and what doesn't get funded, and it's simply a decision of what to cut back. A budget is not supposed to rewrite the law.

But what happened is something very radical. They rewrote two laws. One of the laws was about bank derivatives that Elizabeth Warren has spoken about, promising to bail out Citibank and other banks. If they lose on derivatives, they're going to get bailed out like they did in 2008.

Hezbollah's Drug Trafficking: A Mere Propaganda

Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP) was not alone to accuse Hezbollah for narco-terrorism and drug trafficking. Israeli media has been publishing inconsistent stories about "the success" of the internal security forces (Shin Bet) to expose "Hezbollah-related" drug traffickers.
Furthermore, the Saudi media (Arabic) also accuse Hezbollah of narco-terrorism and they used to invent imaginary stories like "Drug trafficking is Hezbollah's major funding source" and "Hezbollah is increasing drug trade to replace shortage of the Iranian funds"..etc..

Obamas in Royal Trouble for Dining at Restaurant with $500,000 Membership Fee

Nearing the end of the their 17-day vacation in Hawaii, President Obama and the First Lady had their New Year’s Day dinner at one of the most expensive restaurants in Hawaii – where memberships can run upwards of $500,000.

The Obamas enjoyed a nearly three-hour-long, 15-course meal that is priced at nearly $300 a head. According to Honolulu Magazine, that doesn’t include the dessert, wine, or tip, and a dinner for two can run $1000 or more.

Vintage Cave’s website describes the restaurant as nothing short of a restaurant for the elite of America.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wonder if they kicked out the other diners while the Obamas were there.

US drone fleet at 'breaking point' over operator shortage

An internal service memo reveals that the US Air Force combat missions operability is stretched to the limit due to a persistent lack of qualified personnel. And the Pentagon’s rivalry with civil drone operators is only growing.

The US Air Force has no shortage of MQ-1 Predator and MQ-9 Reaper assault drones, yet it is running out of experienced drone operators, making those in the ranks working flat out, The Daily Beast reports, citing an internal service memo.

It indicated that the Air Combat Command (ACC) cannot keep up with educating and training new personnel to satisfy Pentagon’s ever-growing demand for drone flights.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Drones not only surveille: they also kill, and many times, completely innocent men, women, children, and the medically fragile elderly are wiped off the face of this earth due to US military drone strikes.

Intelligent, moral people in our military know this, and I suspect that this is why people have been avoiding being trained for this kind of service as though it was Kryptonite, because performing extrajudicial assassinations from the sky is not a computer game with a "re-set" button.

I do not know what the numbers are on PTSD cases are in this line of military work, but I would imagine that it could, potentially, be very high.

The Chinese are Coming: Beijing in the Balkans and Eastern Europe

The chatter about Beijing’s economic surge coincided well with its Balkans drive, yet another means by which the Chinese business juggernaut is seeking satiation. Chinese diplomats and figures are not strangers to the region.

Last month, Beijing exerted its already noted muscle in the southern European, Balkans region, holding discussions with Serbian counterparts on further financial involvement. The point of convergence was the Central and Eastern European-China summit, continuing last years 16+1 initiative begun in Bucharest.

To minimize the time goods get from China and Asia to Europe will also make those goods more attractive, from a price point perspective, to potential European companies.

And the World Was Split in Twain

In 1991, the Cold War between the US and the USSR ended, as, economically, the USSR had run its course. Since that time, the US has had the ability to back off on armaments and to strengthen itself economically, to become even more powerful as the world’s present empire.

But, of course, that’s not what they did. Instead, they went headlong in the direction of becoming a more highly armed, more fascist state. Along the way, they became extremely reckless with their economy, following a Keynesian model that contributed to the greatest debt bubble the world has ever seen.

Newly Renamed High Fructose Corn Syrup Contains Toxic Mercury

Now branded as ‘fructose’ in processed foods thanks to the whole issue of the public absolutely avoiding high-fructose corn syrup like the plague, it’s important to look back at one landmark study that revealed the presence of ultra-toxic mercury within the ingredient.

Mercury is, as all of the experts admit, toxic in all of its forms. And as the study by the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy found, nearly a third of 55 popular brand-name food and beverage products that listed HFCS as the first or second ingredient were found to contain it.

Even the co-author of the study, Dr. David Wallinga, warns:

“Mercury is toxic in all its forms. Given how much high-fructose corn syrup is consumed by children, it could be a significant additional source of mercury never before considered. We are calling for immediate changes by industry and the [U.S. Food and Drug Administration] to help stop this avoidable mercury contamination of the food supply.”

Sony Hack a Prime Excuse for New US Cybersecurity Laws

Congress has been reluctant to pass the various draconian cybersecurity laws pushed by the administration in recent years, but that may be changing because of the high-profile Sony Pictures hack .

With the FBI ‘successfully’ pinning it on North Korea, at least so far as everyone on Capital Hill is concerned, there is a great deal of pressure for Congress to “do something,” and little interest in the evidence that North Korea had nothing to do with it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to the FBI: if you had real, actionable evidence that North Korea hacked into SONY, that would be one thing; but you don't so the charge here is nothing more than a bold-faced lie, and both US citizens, and the world, knows it.

The only bloody reason you pinned this on North Korea is that North Korea, at the New Year, was reaching out to South Korea for a new round of talks, aimed at ratcheting down the tension between the two countries.

Should that have happened, it would have curtailed this administration's ability to engage in war with North Korea, as a back door to a war with China, which must defend it due to treaty obligations.

The FBI's credibility, if it was not before, is in absolute meltdown, and thinking Americans do not believe one word you say.

Israel to Divert Military Budget to Settlement Expansion

Israeli Premier Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon have announced they will divert some $18 million from the nation’s military budget , which includes money provided as direct military aid from the United States and others, to settlement expansion in the occupied West Bank.

Netanyahu had promised to provide the money to construction 300 more homes in Beit El settlement after the 2012 court decision to demolish 5 apartment buildings built illegally on privately owned Palestinian land.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Annexation and asset forfeiture have been the key Israeli governmental tools to making sure, if there is ever a Palestinian nation, that the physical land it upon which it will exist will be no larger than a postage stamp.

By deferring money from the US government's grants (read: our taxes)which were originally engineered to insure Israel's military competitive edge, Netanyahu is saying to Obama "Up yours!!"

What President Obama and Congress should do, in response to this action, is to immediately stop all financial and military aid to Israel, which is already illegal under the Symington Amendment.

Then, that money should be used to repair the US's crumbling infrastructure.

Of course, that will only happen when pigs fly, due to AIPAC's generous contributions, both in terms of finance and marketing, for those Congressional Representatives who will do whatever Tel Aviv wants them to do.

And if you don't believe me, just take a good, hard look at the new sanctions the Menendez-Kirk-Schumer wishes to impose on Iran, even before the P5+1 talks are due to resume. IF these gentlemen manage to find a "veto proof majority" on this bill, it will force Iran to walk away from the negotiating table, which is precisely what it is engineered to do. And who is just salivating over such a potential outcome?!?

Israel.

As reported at lobelog.com:

Copies of the bill that Sens. Kirk , Menendez , and Schumer hope to introduce in the Senate this week — presumably to be pressed for passage after the Christmas/New Year recess — are circulating today around Washington, and, as predicted, it is clearly designed to sabotage last month’s first-phase deal (the Joint Plan of Action) on Tehran’s nuclear program, as well as prospects for a final agreement. The bill is called the Iran Nuclear Weapon Free Act of 2013 , although I would prefer to call it the Wag the Dog Act of 2014, given the implicit discretion it gives to Bibi Netanyahu to commit the U.S. to war with Iran. Its key provisions, as described by the sponsors, are laid out at the end of this post. As I’ve noted in past posts, the two main co-sponsors of this legislation are also two of the biggest recipients of campaign funding from “pro-Israel” political action committees (PACs) associated with the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) in the U.S. Congress, according to the Center for Responsive Politics’ Open Secrets website. By a wide margin, Kirk was the biggest recipient of pro-Israel PAC money in Congress since 2002; in his most recent campaign (2012), Menendez received more than $340,000 from pro-Israel Pacs, beating out all other Senate candidates. Schumer, a major rainmaker for other Democratic candidates (which poses a very serious challenge to the Obama administration in keeping his party in line on any vote on this bill) ranked fifth in his 2010 race at more than $260,000, far behind Kirk, the year’s winner at nearly $640,000. Let there be no doubt about it: this bill was approved by AIPAC and is thus as close to the position of the Israeli government as its followers here believe will be politically palatable. (Saudi Arabia will also be pleased.)

The Walls Are Crumbling Down Around the “Official 9/11 Story” – Why?

An absolutely monumental shift is in process that most have not recognized yet. The truth, or at least some truth, is about to be shown to the American masses about 9/11. I say American masses because everywhere I’ve gone in the world outside of the US, with few exceptions, almost everyone knows that the US government conspiracy theory on 9/11 is for people with tinfoil hats that are either completely zombified or are under mass hypnosis.

Because while central banks can monetize everything, leading to an unprecedented asset bubble which if only for the time being boosts investor and consumer confidence, they can't print trade - that all important driver of growth in a globalized world long before central banks were set to monetize over $1 trillion in bonds each and every year to mask the fact that the world is deep in a global depression.

Lawmakers seek Saudi 9/11 smoking gun

Some members of Congress are ramping up their call for the public release of 28 classified pages from the government’s 9/11 report. The top-secret pages reportedly reveal Saudi funding of the terrorist attack.

On Wednesday, Reps. Walter B. Jones, R-N.C., and Stephen Lynch, D-Mass., will join former Democratic Sen. Bob Graham of Florida for a Capitol Hill press conference on House Resolution 428, demanding that President Obama declassify the 28 pages of the Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 2001.

The 28 pages were initially classified by President George W. Bush and have remained under seal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Saudi Arabia does not have a history of dirty tricks, nor a demonstrated ability to carry out such deceptions. More to the point, Saudi Arabia has no motive to attack the United States.
The Saudi princes have grown very rich indeed through the Petrodollar arrangement. Saudi Arabia buys many American products and weapons ($61 billion in 2011), and unlike Israel, the American taxpayer does not
have to give them the money first with which to buy those weapons. Whereas Israel constantly takes money out of the US, the Saudis pour it in! Private Saudi investment in the US economy is over $400 billion. Saudi Arabia is a major creditor to the US Government. Exact figures are hard to find but Saudi Arabia has loaned the US Government hundreds of billions of dollars.

Saudi Arabia is not going to risk an attack on the US because all that wealth would vanish. The Saudi wealth inside the US would be frozen or seized, and the outstanding loans to the US would never be repaid.
The "useful idiots" trying to save Israel by blaming 9-11 on Saudi Arabia have yet to come up with a motive for the Saudis to do something like 9-11 that risks losing all that cash.

Remember that Saudi Arabia was being framed for 9-11 right from the start. One of the accused hijackers, a Saudi Pilot named Saeed Al-Ghamdi, was
still alive after 9-11
and sued the US Government for defaming him.

And finally, here is some common sense that totally undermines the attempt to frame Saudi Arabia for 9-11. If Saudi Arabia really wanted to hurt the United States, they don't need to fly airplanes into skyscrapers to do it. All they have to do is ask for their money back, all at once. The resulting damage to the US financial system would make 9-11 look like a minor inconvenience in comparison.

And it would be perfectly legal for Saudi Arabia to ask for their money back.

‘Political manipulation’: Germany wants new Greek govt to obey forced administration

The German government insists it wants Greece to stay in the eurozone and isn’t drafting any contingency plans in case of ‘Grexit’. This shows Germany is adamant about keeping Greece under the domination of the 'troika', journalist Ernst Wolff told RT.

“The goal of the German government, the European Union and even the government in Athens itself is to keep Greece in the euro zone," German Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel said in an interview on Sunday.

"There were no, and there are no, other plans to the contrary," he added, without directly refuting Der Spiegel’s report that a common belief in the German government was that the eurozone is stable enough to cope with potential Greece exit.

"That's why we can't be blackmailed and why we expect the Greece government, no matter who leads it, to abide by the agreements made with the EU," Gabriel added, echoing an earlier statement by a high-ranking member of German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s party, Michael Fuchs.

The Duke of York returned to Windsor from a new year holiday in the Swiss ski resort of Verbier to face what courtiers described as “lurid and deeply personal” claims detailing his alleged relations over a decade ago with Virginia Roberts.

Aides stepped up a highly unusual royal operation launched on Saturday to categorically deny the claims. Prince Andrew personally decided to issue a strong denial while still in Verbier.

He approved a statement, extraordinary in its frankness for a member of the royal family, which vehemently denied “any form of sexual contact or relationship with Virginia Roberts” and added: “The allegations made are false and without any foundation.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The rich and privileged live a very different life than we mere mortals do; and for many of them, the rules and norms do not apply.

Normally, I wouldn't report on a story like this, but it is beginning to feel more and more like Clinton's angry allegation that "I did not have sexual relations with that woman...(Monica Lewinsky)!", which proved, ultimately, to be an outright lie.

I have to wonder if these rooms, in which such acts were allegedly perpetrated, were bugged with both video and audio.

To do these acts makes one susceptible to blackmail. I am mightily surprised that Prince Andrew wasn't even aware of that possibility, in this digital age.

Arctic Polar Blast Coming: Midwest Temperatures To Plunge 35 Below Average, Chicago Facing Record Lows

following a brief overnight respite from cold temperatures, entering the first full week of January, both the Midwest and the East will see a plunge to the coldest temperatures of the season. This blast of cold temperatures will be different than the Arctic chill that ended 2014, which was mainly confined to the northern tier. This time the frigid air will push farther south and east.

Greek euro exit would be ‘Lehman Brothers squared’: economist

A decision by a new Greek government to leave the eurozone would set off devastating turmoil in financial markets even worse than the collapse of Lehman Brothers in 2008, a leading international economist warned Saturday.

A Greek exit would likely spark runs on Greek banks and the country’s stock market and end with the imposition of severe capital controls, said Barry Eichengreen, an economic historian at the University of California at Berkeley. He spoke as part of a panel discussion on the euro EURUSD, -0.77% crisis at the American Economic Association’s annual meeting.

The exit would also spill into other countries as investors speculate about which might be next to leave the currency union, he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The real problem here, should Greece leave the Euro, and default on their debt, there is a potential crash of credit default markets, which could well go global.

Russia's "Startling" Proposal To Europe: Dump The US, Join The Eurasian Economic Union

Russia has presented a startling proposal to overcome the tensions with the EU: The EU should renounce the free trade agreement with the United States TTIP and enter into a partnership with the newly established Eurasian Economic Union instead. A free trade zone with the neighbors would make more sense than a deal with the US.

It surely would, but then how will Europe feign outrage when the NSA is found to have spied yet again on its "closest trading partners?" Some more on Russia's proposal from EUobserver:

Vladimir Chizhov told EUobserver: “Our idea is to start official contacts between the EU and the EAEU as soon as possible. [German] chancellor Angela Merkel talked about this not long ago. The EU sanctions [on Russia] are not a hindrance”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

love Putin or hate him, he 20,000 chess moves ahead of the US government in presenting this proposal to Europe!!

And Europe, collectively, may well have had just enough of US governmental bullying and NSA spying to say yes to the proposal!!

What Most Police Officers Think Of The US Constitution

Face the facts. Most police officers swore to uphold the constitution because it was a necessary component of their induction ceremony. No induction equals no job, and no job equals no paycheck. People will metaphorically roll their eyes and swear to uphold anything if it means the difference in bringing home the bacon or not.

If the constitution is something a lot of them really don’t have “the feels” for, then you obviously need to possess it for yourself. Because you cannot count on the police to follow the rules, nor abide by the limitations on authority that the document is supposed to enforce.

DARPA Developing Microdrones Designed to Sneak Into Homes

The federal government apparently isn’t content with remotely watching and recording your every electronic (and real world) movement; it will soon control microdrones that could then be sent surreptitiously into your home. And unless the warrentless eletronic surveillance already being conducted by government-run-amok is brought to a halt, this new form of home invasion will also be warrantless.

DARPA, the military’s research and development arm, has announced its intent to sponsor development of a new category of these tiny monitors.

In a press release soliciting bids for manufacture of the microdrones, DARPA doesn’t define the potential target theatre, but any promise of foreign focus is illusory in a world where the Constitution’s prohibition on warrantless searches is seen as nothing more than a quaint parchment barrier to those determined to keep an eye (and ear) on every person in the world.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I will tell you precisely where I would like to see those microdrones deployed immediately after they have been developed: in the homes of every family of every military or research entity which has signed off on this concept, permanently.

Between the unholy trinity of the Patriot Act, the Homeland Security Act, and the NDAA, US citizens no longer have the rights to life, liberty, or privacy, even when you are doing absolutely nothing wrong or illegal.

And folks with kids and skills, please get the hell out of this country while you still can!!

Remember This When the Media Tells You “The Cop Had to Shoot Him Because He Was Armed”

How is it that these guns (sometimes knives) keep showing up on people after being shot by police?

The answer: throw-away weapons.

Throw-aways, or what are sometimes called drop weapons, became very popular in Iraq. Some US troops would carry a few throw-away AKs in their vehicles.

The idea behind having throw-aways is that when you kill an innocent person, you can plant the throw-away weapon on them moments after their death.

This allows you to maintain that the victim — who will now be named a “suspect” by Statist media outlets — was armed, that you had no choice but to shoot him, and that you “feared for your life.”

Quite literally, a throw-away weapon allows you to get away with murder.

Davos Elites Enjoys the Global Depression

When Klaus Schwab, founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum started the yearly pilgrimage to the inner sanctums of the Swiss Gnomes, he could hardly conceive that the ritual would turn into a celebrity bash of the super rich. The Davos venue is appropriate. Only rarified air is suitable for the global Mattoids. Billed as an assembly of business moguls, it really is more of an audition of well-heeled speculators vying for inclusion into the real power elites who make or break governments, economies and political destinies.

Using a combination of a Hollywood press agent, Madison Avenue ad firm and a media business channel the CNBC cheerleaders, the Davos clan relishes in their ill-gotten privilege and influence. The too big to fail mantra fits into the nihilism of their cult devotion of manipulated markets.

Continuity of Government Commission

It is amazing that so many citizens are eager to espouse the virtues of democracy. Multitudes of Americans love their government, no matter what it does or where it goes - the State is their mistress. Trusting in the institutions of the federal government is an article of faith, democracy protects the public, voting selects the representatives. Are you a ‘true believer’ in the system that serves the populace? Or are you one of those awful cynics that knock the good intentions of the inner circle that brings freedom and justice to the little folks? Surely, you count yourself among the chorus of the cheering crowd! Now you have your fondest dream - coming soon - to safeguard the protector of the people. It’s focus is on preserving Congress, the President, and the Supreme Court and comes from “The Continuity of Government Commission”.

Young people are 'lost generation' who can no longer fix gadgets, warns professor

Young people in Britain have become a lost generation who can no longer mend gadgets and appliances because they have grown up in a disposable world, the professor giving this year’s Royal Institution Christmas lectures has warned.

Radioactive goods seized at Beirut port, airport: minister

Finance Minister Ali Hasan Khalil Monday said dangerous radioactive components found in industrial and kitchen items recently seized at the Beirut port and airport threaten the lives of Lebanese.

“Customs officers at the Beirut port and the Beirut airport have confiscated industrial and kitchen goods that contain dangerous radioactive material [that threaten] public health,” Khalil revealed at a news conference.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Your Daily Dose of BOOGA BOOGA! - Al-Qaida threatens to use ‘undetectable’ bombs against U.S.

In the latest issue of the terror group’s Inspire electronic magazine, an individual called the AQ Chef was quoted as saying they developed a bomb in 2009, but “the brothers in the external operation committee did not give us the green light until recently.”

Hinting at al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula’s dedication to building undetectable bombs, he said in the winter 2014 edition of Inspire, released in late December, “they have developed other bombs that are more effective.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Inspire is a propaganda operation, and we know that because they have featured Adam Gadahn on their cover. Adam Gadahn is a phony. His real name is Adam Pearlman and he is the grandson of a member of the board of the ADL. See Fake Al Qaeda.

Controversial DNA startup wants to let customers create creatures

In Austen Heinz’s vision of the future, customers tinker with the genetic codes of plants and animals and even design new creatures on a computer. Then his startup, Cambrian Genomics, prints that DNA quickly, accurately and cheaply.

“Anyone in the world that has a few dollars can make a creature, and that changes the game,” Heinz said. “And that creates a whole new world.”

The 31-year-old CEO has a deadpan demeanor that can be hard to read, but he is not kidding. In a makeshift laboratory in San Francisco, his synthetic biology company uses lasers to create custom DNA for major pharmaceutical companies. Its mission, to “democratize creation” with minimal to no regulation, frightens bioethicists as deeply as it thrills Silicon Valley venture capitalists.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The capability to do this, by tinkering with the building blocks of life, with utterly no regulation, could well lead to an ELE (extinction level event.)

GMO Lawsuit: Iowa Farmers Are Suing Syngenta

The specific type of corn, Syngenta AG’s Agrisure Viptera, had not been approved by China. The rejection of the corn led to a drop in grain and soybean futures and a three-year low for the price of corn amid at the Chicago Board of Trade amid concerns that China is going to limit not just corn but all agriculture imports. A similar drop in wheat and alfalfa prices occurred earlier in 2013 when GMO strains of both alfalfa and wheat were discovered in Washington and Oregon.

Sixteen Iowa farmers and businesses filed a GMO contamination lawsuit against Syngenta seeking both punitive and monetary damages. The biotech company which rivals Monsanto for a share of the genetically modified seed market, is based in Switzerland, but also has operations in Iowa.

Previous legal filings against Syngenta combined with the current GMO corn lawsuit now mean that the company faces court challenges from 100 commodity traders and farmers – including Archer Daniels Midland and Cargill.

Latest Foster Cover-Up Book Not Completely Worthless

Purported journalist Marinka Peschmann is not exactly an experienced researcher on the 51dOgw0PmzLsubject and it shows in her thin little 2012 volume, Following Orders: The Death of Vince Foster, Clinton White House Lawyer. One would think that this 5×8 inch paperback with only 132 pages of actual text would at least be spare with any unnecessary verbiage, but in fact the opposite is the case. It’s full of passages in which she and former Clinton White House legal office aide Linda Tripp just chew the fat, speculating about one thing or another. Not until her 12th and last chapter does she come through with her really batty theory of what actually happened the day Foster died.

Former Aviation Boss Says U.S. Navy Shot Down Missing Airliner

A former French airline boss and novelist is making international headlines after going public last week with a bold theory about what really happened to Malaysia Airlines flight MH370.

Marc Dugain, the former chief executive of now-defunct Proteus Airlines, believes the U.S. Navy may have shot it out of the sky.

Dugain lays out his case in two articles in French magazine Paris Match.

Dugain's claims have gotten media attention in Europe and spurred a flurry of activity in online conspiracy forums.

More Data on Attributing the Sony Attack

An analysis of the timestamps on some of the leaked documents shows that they were downloaded at USB 2.0 speeds -- which implies an insider.

Our Gotnews.com investigation into the data that has been released by the "hackers" shows that someone at Sony was copying 182GB at minimum the night of the 21st -- the very same day that Sony Pictures' head of corporate communications, Charles Sipkins, publicly resigned from a $600,000 job. This could be a coincidence but it seems unlikely. Sipkins's former client was NewsCorp and Sipkins was officially fired by Pascal's husband over a snub by the Hollywood Reporter.

Two days later a malware bomb occurred.

Nearly 1 million children potentially misdiagnosed with ADHD

Nearly 1 million children in the United States are potentially misdiagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder simply because they are the youngest – and most immature – in their kindergarten class, according to new research by a Michigan State University economist.

These children are significantly more likely than their older classmates to be prescribed behavior-modifying stimulants such as Ritalin, said Todd Elder, whose study appears in the September issue of the Journal of Health Economics.

Such inappropriate treatment is particularly worrisome because of the unknown impacts of long-term stimulant use on children’s health, Elder said. It also wastes an estimated $320 million-$500 million a year on unnecessary medication – some $80 million-$90 million of it paid by Medicaid, he said.

TONY BLAIR LINKED TO TEEN SEX SLAVE STORY

"Robert Maxwell had free access to Margaret Thatcher's Downing Street, to Ronald Reagan's White House, to the Kremlin and to the corridors of power throughout Europe." British Publisher Robert Maxwell Was A Mossad Spy.

Robert Maxwell 'built himself a position of power within the crime families of eastern Europe, teaching them how to funnel their wealth from drugs, arms smuggling and prostitution to banks in safe havens'.

British publisher Robert Maxwell was a Mossad Spy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, Epstein and Maxwell get underage girls for top political figures, including a British Prime Minister, make videos of them, and presto, these politicians become fanatical defenders of Israel's policies!

"Did your son seem more settled when he was little?" Her eyes clouded and shifted; she didn't answer.

"After he started getting his shots and boosters, did he do alright? Did you notice any change in his awareness or behavior?" She shouted at me.

"NO! It just happened; no one knows how."

WHEN HITLER DROPPED PEACE LEAFLETS, CHURCHILL DROPPED BOMBS!

Most students of real history, and certainly all readers of TomatoBubble.com, already know this. But did you know that Hitler went so far as to airdrop mass quantities of 'peace leaflets' over London? It's true. The 4-page leaflets were English-language copies of his recent speech before the German nation, a speech which the Germans arranged to have broadcast on hundreds of radio stations across Europe. The July 19th speech was entitled: "A Last Appeal to Reason".

Dropped over London the day after, the leaflet summarizes the injustices inflicted upon Germany after the Great War of 1914-1918, warns of the machinations of the Jewish warmongers and their henchmen, and finally closes with Hitler’s plea to call off the war.

Some of the policies, strategies and approaches towards destabilizing Russia are out in the open. Some less so. But this is where it gets most interesting. For while it was fairly easy to spot some of the aggression aimed at Russia from without, seeing it occur even more covertly from within is another story. Which brings us to some recent news.

Mass die-off of seabirds on Pacific coast called mysterious

Scientists are trying to figure out what’s behind the deaths of seabirds that have been found by the hundreds along the Pacific Coast since October.

Mass die-offs of the small, white-bellied grey birds known as Cassin’s auklets have been reported from British Columbia to San Luis Obispo, Calif.

It’s normal for some seabirds to die during harsh winter conditions, especially during big storms, but the scale of the current die-off is unusual.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Well, there is the fact that this winter is much harsher than normal, which will kill off more birds. There is that huge methane cloud over the southwestern United States and birds are very sensitive to methane, and then there is the radioactivity from Fukushima.

The Atlantic Can't Figure Out Why U.S. Loses Wars

The main focus of the article is the by now endlessly familiar discovery that most U.S.-Americans are not in the military. The article is accompanied by another advocating a draft. The claim in the main article is that because most people are disconnected from the military they are more willing to send it off into unwinnable wars.

Nowhere does the author, James Fallows, attempt to so much as hint at what makes the wars unwinnable. He does claim that the last war that was in any way victorious for the United States was the Gulf War. But he can't mean that it resolved a crisis. It was a war followed by bombings and sanctions and, in fact, the repeated revival of the war, ongoing and escalating even now.

Sexual Violence, Women’s Bodies, and Israeli Settler Colonialism

They not only invaded our home, took over our space, and evicted us—they even arrested me and took me to the Maskubya—the police station. I was put in room number four, alone, for a long time. Then, a big and tall man, a police officer, entered the interrogation room. I was alone, and started shivering from fear as he closed the door, started moving things around in the room and examining me from head to toe. I was terrorized, and my heart was beating so fast. His eyes penetrated my body, as he was opening the drawers looking for something. Then, he left the room and came back five minutes later holding a box. He pulled out a pair of blue plastic gloves, and put one on each of his hands, while looking at me and saying “…Come here…” I must tell you that I was terrorized when they invaded the house and evicted us. I was extremely anxious when they arrested my son.

Lawyers of the activists have asked Scotland Yard to open a probe into the incident to find whether Israeli special forces committed war crimes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One of the dead was an American citizen.

Israel murdered an AMERICAN CITIZEN in international waters, for taking their picture! A 19-year old boy from New York carrying a US Passport. Indeed Furkan Dogan's American citizenship is in less dispute than that of Barack Hussein Obama!

Back in 1941, there was this foreign nation, Japan, which was illegally occupying other peoples' lands in China and Indonesia.

There were Americans in close proximity to that foreign nation, in the then-territory of Hawaii, and even though the Americans had not actually done much of anything, that foreign nation decided it had the right to attack and kill Americans just on the off chance that somewhere down the road, they might be in inconvenience.

Thus came about the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Now, just for a moment imagine that instead of declaring immediate war on those who attacked Americans, President Franklin D. Roosevelt had rushed over to the League of Nations to explain why Japan's attack on Americans was really no big deal, and that Japan had good reason to attack and kill Americans! Imagine if Roosevelt, instead of the "Day of Infamy" speech, had made countless excuses why Japan was perfectly right to attack and kill Americans. Imagine that the US Congress, instead of voting war against the nation that attacked Americans decided to punish those who criticized the nation that attacked Americans?

Quite an amazing fantasy isn't it? Yet this is exactly what we have seen the present government do over the last few years ever since Israel's attack on the aid flotilla!

Israel, citing grounds of national security, occupies the lands of Palestine, just as Japan, citing national security, occupied China. The Americans in the aid flotilla had not actually done anything to threaten Israel, just like the Americans sitting in Pearl Harbor had done nothing to threaten Japan.

1941 Japan attacks Americans in the middle of an ocean and the US goes to war against Japan.

2010 Israel attacks Americans in the middle of a sea and the US Government protects the attacker.

In 1904, American businessman Ion Perdicaris was taken prisoner by Mulai Raisuli. Now, from Raisuli's point of view, he had good reason to take Perdicaris prisoner as Raisuli was fighting against foreign occupation of his homeland. Even Perdicaris conceded that Raisuli was acting from what Perdicaris considered justifiable motives.

But President Roosevelt did not view the affair from Raisuli's point of view. He viewed it from the point of view of a President of the United States. Under the slogan "Perdicaris alive or Raisuli dead!" Roosevelt sent 7 US Battleships with orders to destroy Morroco if Perdicaris was not released. Perdicaris was sent home.

Those men were real Presidents; Presidents who understood that their job as commander in chief is to protect America and Americans first and foremost, and to hell with the other guys' point of view; real Presidents which when compared to, Obama is but a thin and venal wisp of shadow.

Palestinians criticise Israeli decision to withhold tax

Israel is withholding $127 million (€106 million) in tax revenue it collects for the Palestinian Authority in response to its move last week to join the International Criminal Court, further escalating tensions with a step that could have repercussions for both sides.

Saeb Erekat, the chief Palestinian negotiator, said that the Israeli move could lead to the disintegration of the 20-year-old authority because it would be unable to pay government workers or provide public services. He promised to retaliate by expediting the petitions to join the court and other international agencies and said Israel “will be held accountable for everything.”

‘US pursuing political agenda, not justice, sanctioning N.Korea over Sony hack’

There is no hard evidence for the United States’ claims that the North Korea was behind the hack on Sony. In fact, the evidence seems to point in a very different direction. Reports in US and global media say experts taking part in the investigation essentially rule out North Korea’s participation. They say the evidence simply isn’t there to point that finger.

Moreover, those very same experts point out that due to the complexity of the cyberattack it is not quite possible to determine who was behind it in mere 48 or 72 hours as was the case with the US government. Rather than seeing the evidence and drawing conclusions from that, it seems that Washington is pursuing a political agenda and using this issue to further that agenda.

Computer glitch prevents US’ most advanced F-35 fighter jet from firing until 2019 – report

The Pentagon’s fighter jet F-35 may not be fully operational until 2019 due to a newly discovered computer glitch. The $400 billion ultra-sophisticated jet, the most expensive in US history, was expected to enter service in 2015.

F-35 is the fifth generation combat aircraft which is designed in three variations for US Air Force, Navy and Marines to replace out of date aircraft. It was planned to join the Marines in 2015 and Air Force in 2016.

It is planned to replace the Air Force’s A-10 Warthog ground attack plane and Lockheed F-16 multirole fighter, the Navy instead of Boeing F/A-18 Hornet carrier-based fighter, and the Marines instead of Boeing AV-8B Harrier II jump-jet.

However, the most awaited plane’s main weapon will not be able to fire due to a computer glitch. The four-barreled rotary cannon for the Air Force version of the F-35 cannot function until new software is elaborated, despite jet scheduled to join the army this year.

Jan 04 09:56

‘Software disaster’: Pentagon never even planned F-35’s gun to shoot until 2019

RT: The F-35 fighter jet has been strongly criticized. Is that warranted do you think?

Pierre Sprey: The F-35 is in serious trouble, the latest is over the gun system. It is being reported that is due to a computer glitch – that is a severe understatement.

What it is really due to is two things: one, the disaster of ridiculously over-complex computer software system; and two, the fact that the gun itself is mainly for the purpose of close support and close in the air combat and the air force does not think that either of those are important.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That was the same tactical mistake they made with the F-4, which was originally built without an air-to-air cannon in the expectation that all air combat would use missiles. As the kill ratio dropped from 12 to 1 down to 3 to 1 during Vietnam, an underbelly gun pod was quickly added to the F-4.

Libya terror suspect Anas al-Liby dies before US trial

An alleged al-Qaeda leader has died just days before going on trial in New York over the 1998 US embassy attacks in Africa.

Abu Anas al-Liby, 50, died in hospital on Friday, his wife and lawyers say. He is reported to have had liver cancer.

Mr Liby was seized in a US raid in Tripoli in October 2013.

He was to stand trial on 12 January over the 1998 embassy attacks, which killed more than 220 people in Kenya and Tanzania.

Mr Liby, whose real name was Nazih Abdul-Hamed al-Ruqai, previously pleaded not guilty to terrorism charges.

His wife, Um Abdullah, accused the US government on Saturday of "kidnapping, mistreating and killing an innocent man," according to the Associated Press news agency.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a person who no longer has the luxury of believing in "coincidence, I find the timing of this man's death...interesting.

Not that he could not have died from complications of his cancer surgery, but his dying right before his trial began?!?

I have to wonder if what he knew, and was willing to state in his own defense, might have somehow compromised the US government, and big-time.

How Many of These Secret Surveillance Programs Do you Know About?

According to various publications in the American and foreign media, the United States has created a global system of cyber espionage that allows the interception and processing of personal data around the globe in violation of fundamental human rights. Tapped phones, intercepted short messages, supervised discussions in social networks and stolen emails – this is the ugly reality we are living in. The NSA and other units of the United States Intelligence Community are more than capable of breaching any mobile operating system, be it iOS, Android or BlackBerry OS.

Washington and its agencies are literally spending billions of taxpayer dollars annually under the convenient guise of the “war on terror”, which in fact turns out to be a hidden war against its own citizens, now deprived of basic human rights. But what makes it even worse is that it’s pushing its satellite countries to launch an all-out offensive against the civil liberties of Europe and beyond.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The alleged "war on terror" is simply a cover for a continuing surveillance war against Americans.

We have moved so quickly from "the land of the free...and the home of the brave" to the "land of the cowed...and the home of the surveilled" quickly enough to make my head spin.

Woman who sued convicted billionaire over sex abuse levels claims at his friends

A woman allegedly kept as a sex slave by politically-connected billionaire investor Jeffrey Epstein, who went to jail for having sex with underaged girls, is accusing several prominent friends of the financier of having taken part in the debauchery, according to a new court filing.

The woman—referred to in court papers as Jane Doe #3—leveled the allegations Tuesday against Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz and Britain’s Prince Andrew, as well as British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell and French model scout Jean Luc Brunel.

Prince Andrew named in US lawsuit over underage sex claims

A woman who claims that an American investment banker loaned her to rich and powerful friends as an underage “sex slave” has alleged in a US court document that she was repeatedly forced to have sexual relations with Prince Andrew.

The accusation against the Duke of York is contained in a motion filed in a Florida court this week in connection with a long-running lawsuit brought by women who say they were exploited by Jeffrey Epstein, a multi-millionaire convicted of soliciting sex with an underage girl after a plea deal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Prince's lawyers are already claiming that the Prince is protected from prosecution by Epstein's prosecution deal, which blocks prosecution of all "co-conspirators", meaning the rich and powerful Epstein was pimping the girls to.

But in the court of world opinion, this is looking really bad for the elites (and really good for the masses, who need to face up to the reality of what kind of sub-humans rule them).



The above is a photograph of Prince Andrew. The young woman he has his arm around is identified as Virginia Roberts, who has come forward as Jane Doe #3 in the lawsuit. Virginia's presence at Epstein's "events" is confirmed by aircraft records and court documents.

A New IRS Horror Story That Makes Past Scandals Pale In Comparison

The practice has resulted in emptying the bank account of an innocent restaurant owner and an army sergeant in Virginia who was saving money for his daughter’s college education.

Then there was the retail business whose insurance only covered $10,000 in the event of a lost or stolen sum of money. As a result, the owner, who was cautious about keeping too much cash on site, was careful to send employees to make bank deposits throughout the day in amounts less than $10,000 so he could rely on his insurance policy.

In each of these cases, and many others, the IRS, without notice or so much as a criminal complaint or indictment, swooped in and emptied the bank accounts of these completely legitimate people and businesses.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The United States had abandoned the principle of innocent until proven guilty and returned to the Napoleonic Code, in which one is presumed guilty until innocence can be proven.

Dershowitz named in lawsuit alleging abuse of underage sex slave

? ? ? ? ?

A federal lawsuit in Florida accuses Alan Dershowitz, the famed advocate for Israel, of sexually abusing a minor. Dershowitz has denied the charges and vowed to hit back.

The allegations come in a lawsuit by four women against the federal government for violating the rights of crime victims when it made a plea deal in 2008 with Jeffrey Epstein, the notorious financier, over allegations of sexual abuse of minors. Epstein ended up spending more than a year in prison.

The suit says that Dershowitz routinely had sexual relations with Epstein’s “sex slave” at a time when she was under 18 years old, and before she escaped Epstein. The JTA says that Dershowitz denies the charges:

Alan Dershowitz declared “totally, unequivocally and completely false” allegations that he enjoyed sexual services from a minor employed by a friend and client.

Claim: Video of 'bighearted' homeless man a 'scam'

Americans opened their wallets to the man when he purportedly took the donation and distributed the food to strangers. The homeless man, who is identified as “Thomas” in the video, was said to be given a hot Christmas Eve dinner, a warm hotel room and a makeover.

Meanwhile, donations poured in to help him get back on his feet. A fundraising campaign has collected more than $135,000. The YouTube video went viral, with more than 30 million hits.

The New York Daily News reported, “Viewers moved by the video to donate more than $130,000 to its ‘homeless’ star were blindsided upon learning he’s not down on his luck, but stands to inherit $150,000 from his parents’ estate.”

A man named Kevin Nickel told the Post that the vagrant is actually his brother, Kenny.

“This is a scam,” he said.

Nickel told CBS Los Angeles, “He’s sitting on money. He’s sitting on an estate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I will admit I am a bit pissed off at this. I try to live my life as honestly as I can and frankly, while I am not homeless, it is only by a thin line. $135,000 would put Claire and I back on our feet, pay the medical bills NOT paid for by our Obamacare compliant health insurance, clear up our debts, modernize all the computers that ruin WRH and the radio show, and still have enough left over to pay for our move back to the mainland.

Now Legal, Declassified Documents Reveal How CIA “Develop” Covert Propaganda “Themes to Push ‘Hot Buttons’ of Americans”

We are continually lied to and deceived by the mass media and our government institutions. Professionally-crafted propaganda techniques to frame the story and, in many cases, to advance totally fabricated events, have been used to goad on the population and gain support for the State, even at the expense of what is best for the people.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government does not have a legal right to lie to its people.

And if you want a recent example of this, just take a look at Obama's declared intention to punish North Korea with sanctions about the Sony data breach, which North Korea did not do.

But North Korea was making overtures to South Korea about meeting, at a very high level, to replace the armistice, well over 60 years old this year, with a real peace treaty; and of course, Obama couldn't stand to see that happen, because it would ruin his chances of starting his war against North Korea as a back door to a war with China, because both China's currency and military are on the ascendent.

Political Crisis in Bahrain: Major Protests Following Arrest of Opposition Movement Leader

The Secretary General of Al Wefaq Society was arrested on Monday 29th December and remained in custody for one week. He had been summoned by the Alkhalifa torturers and questioned for two days before the dictator decided to exact revenge from him by detaining him for one week. Sheikh Salman is known for his soft language and tone, and has steered Al Wefaq within the Alkhalifa laws. But the tyrant has been enraged by the decision of the political societies led by Al Wefaq to boycott the regime’s hollow elections in November. It was a strong slap on his face because it showed the lack of popular support or legitimacy to his rule. The Alkhalifa and their Saudi and British backers had hoped that those elections would provide a plausible exit from the political crisis that has engulfed the country since the eruption of the 14th February Revolution.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You didn't need a crystal ball to see this coming, over the last several years.

In 2015, we may well see peaceful movements for change in Bahrain turn violent.

And Saudi Arabia, with a projected budget deficit of $38.6 billion for this year, may not have the money to send in Saudi troops to put down demonstrations, as it did a couple of years ago.

The US Navy's 5th Fleet calls Bahrain its home. So what will the Al Khalifa monarchy ask the US government to do, I wonder, and to what degree will the the US government comply in suppressing unrest in order to keep the Navy's Fifth Fleet there?!?

It will be curious to see how this unfolds.

Catastrophe at Ukraine’s Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant?

The first thing most people don’t realize is that geiger counters are location sensitive. They are calibrated against the background radiation for a specific location. This means that if you take a geiger counter and move just a mile away, the background radiation itself could be different and the measurement inaccurate. Known background radiation is the Zero point on a calibrated geiger counter.

Second and as important is that all sensitive measurement tools need to be calibrated and certified to be useful. Sensitive tools go out of calibration by themselves over time. After Fukushima, a new normal needs to be considered.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Poroshenko's government needs to come as clean as humanly possible about the facts on the ground here; lives are at stake, not only those of Ukrainians, but also those of Europeans.

Israeli forces fired down the road leading from the checkpoint to the schools, filling the street adjacent to the schools with a choking cloud of gas and preventing Palestinians walking through the checkpoint from continuing down the street. As it is exam season in al-Khalil’s schools, children were attempting to reach school between seven and eight am and leaving again between nine thirty and eleven. Israeli military forces kept up a sporadic barrage of fire from the time some children were still walking to school until after school finished, forcing anyone traveling in either direction to brave whistling tear gas canisters and the dizzying smoke which still lingered even after the shooting had halted.

And the Winner of the ‘War On Terror’ Financed Dream Home 2014 Giveaway Is…

Oceanfront views, 24-hour doorman, heated pool, and perhaps best of all, a “private tunnel to the beach.” This $3 million Palm Beach, Florida penthouse could be yours, but unfortunately it isn’t because this prize has already been claimed by a former high-level U.S. official who helped pave the way for the over decade-long “war on terror,” which has been a near complete catastrophe.

Iraq is aflame, the Islamic State is on the rampage, the situation in Afghanistan worsens by the day, and thousands of Americans—and many more Iraqis and Afghans—have died during the post-9/11 conflicts. Meanwhile, the combined cost of the “war on terror” comes to an estimated $1.6 trillion.

Webmaster's Commentary:

New Claims Prince Andrew Asked U.S. Prosecutors To Go Easy On Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein Over Human Trafficking Claims

Britain’s Prince Andrew allegedly lobbied the U.S. government to go easy on an American billionaire the FBI was investigating for holding sex slaves he allegedly shared with the prince and “many other powerful men,” according to claims in a court document obtained by RadarOnline.com.

Four women who allege they were Jeffrey Epstein’s sex slaves are suing the federal prosecutors for not conferring with them before reaching “a secret non-prosecution agreement” with the Wall Street money manager.

Instead of possible life sentences over human trafficking allegations, which included claims he shared teen sex slaves with his rich and powerful friends, Epstein was allowed to plead guilty to a far lesser state sex charge that sent him to a Florida prison for just 13 months.

Exact death tolls are unclear, but dozens of people were reported killed today as the US escalated its airstrikes against the ISIS capital of Raqqa and the contested city of Kobani.

The US launches daily airstrikes in both places, of course, but reports today are that the number of attacks are the highest since before December 24, when a Jordanian pilot involved in the air war was shot down and captured.

Raqqa is the de facto capital city of the ISIS caliphate, and indeed ISIS controls materially the entire Raqqa Province. In Kobani, ISIS is continuing to fight against Kurdish militias which hold much of the cit

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You cannot win what is essentially a ground war from the air; one would think that the US military would have absorbed this lesson from the Vietnam War, but apparently, they have not.

US Slaps Iran With New Sanctions Unrelated to Nuclear Program: US Treasury

“Although we do not support the imposition of any new nuclear-related sanctions while negotiations are ongoing, throughout the JPOA [Joint Plan of Action] period we have made clear, by word and deed, that we will continue to enforce our existing sanctions,” Undersecretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence at US Treasury David Cohen said.

Five individuals and one entity have been subjected to new sanctions for assisting the Iranian government in purchasing or acquiring US banknotes. Two Iranian companies, Abyssec and Douran Software Technologies, were targeted for allegedly helping Tehran dodge US sanctions and supporting human rights-related abusers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That last statement is really rich: "...and supporting human rights abusers."

Undersecretary Cohen might well have swallowed those words, before uttering them in public, in light of the highly redacted summary of the US government's report on torture against prisoners of war, which has been recently revealed to not only US citizens, but also to the world.

Between this, and the Senate's talking about laying down more sanctions against Iran with an alleged "veto proof" majority, it appears that this country is doing everything in its power to insure that Iran walks away from negotiations, then claim it's Iran's fault for leaving.

That clears the way for a US/Israeli attack against it, which is precisely the outcome Israel wants.

Or better yet, from Tel Aviv's perspective, make it a completely an American campaign, so that no members of the IDF get killed, or maimed for life.

Russian leadership, both diplomatic and military, have very bluntly stated that they will consider any attack against Iran to be an attack on the interests of Russia.

I would like to politely point out to those precious few adults in the room in the bowels of power in DC, that the US military does not have the money, the troop strength, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia; and that is what makes a military scenario here so scarily dangerous.

And to those in Tel Aviv advocating for such a scenario, I would strongly caution you to rethink. Should Iran be attacked, Hezbullah may very well attack Israel from the north,, and the casualty figures may be catastrophically higher than what your military planners have told you.

The P5+1 talks are the world's best bet for stabilizing the region. The Iranian leadership may be many things, but stupid is not one of them.Even dealing with the hardline reactionaries, the current government, I believe, truly wants to see these negotiations succeed.

Sabotaging these talks would be the most pig-headedly, ham-fistedly stupid thing the US government could possibly do right now; and yet, it appears that this is precisely what these actions are engineered to do.

Iris Scan Beaten with Cell Phone Cameras

A hacker has cracked at the Congress of the Chaos Computer Club, the thumbprint of Ursula von der Leyen and the iris of Chancellor Merkel.Therefore, the hacker used simple press photos of politicians. It appears that it is sufficient for a cell phone camera to fool biometric recognition systems, such as the Irsis scan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So much for Iris scans being "safe" from hacking!!

Oliver Stone's New Movie: "Ukraine: The CIA Coup" Coming To A Theater Near You

US filmmaker Oliver Stone is currently engaged in production of a documentary about Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych, who fled the country following the February coup last year. As Sputnik reports, Stone's Facebook page notes, "[I] Interviewed Viktor Yanukovych 4 hours in Moscow for new English language documentary produced by Ukrainians. He [Yanukovych] was the legitimate President of Ukraine until he suddenly wasn't on February 22 of this year." The outspoken director then added, "the truth is not being aired in the West... many believe foreign elements were introduced by pro-Western factions with CIA fingerprints on it."

It’s time to abolish the CIA

After a trial run of 67 years, the agency has proven a sorcerer’s apprentice. The director and his subordinates have became insufferably arrogant Platonic Guardians hiding behind secrecy in the belief that the rest of us are too stupid or naive to judge what risks to accept to preserve liberty and the rule of law. The CIA has made Americans less safe.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The last President to try to curb the CIA was John F. Kennedy, and the head of the CIA that he fired, Allen Dulles, was appointed to the Warren Commission to "investigate" his murder.

USA instructs Russian Central Bank how to strangle Russian economy

"In other words, Russia is not even a ruble country de jure. Russia is a dollar country. The Russian ruble takes a small share in the country. The whole segment of investment is based on dollars and euros. The Constitution protects that, and the Central Bank of the country should keep the rate. Now, we have the situation when the Central Bank does not abide by the Constitution, because it raised the key rate and reduced the ruble rate. From the point of view of the Constitution, the Central Bank is obliged to keep the rate. The Central Bank violated the Constitution and Putin's numerous instructions, but it was an absolutely logical move. The charter of the Central Bank does not contain a word about the Russian economy. It should not support the Russian economy. The law says that the Central Bank is governed by international agreements. The bank signs agreements that the Ministry of Justice does not even register. The administration of the Russian Central Bank is based outside Russia.

White House announces sanctions against N. Korea

US President Barack Obama signed an executive order on Friday authorizing the imposition of new sanctions against certain North Korean entities in the wake of the recent Sony hack the White House continues to blame on Pyongyang.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is zero evidence that north Korea had anything to do with the SONY hack and quite a bit of evidence it was an internal hack by a disgruntled employee. This is Obama's version of Saddam's nuclear weapons; a made up threat to provoke another nation into war.

'It was us': CIA 'fesses up on UFO sightings in 1950-60s

The Central Intelligence Agency has admitted that it was responsible for at least half of reported UFO sightings in the middle of the last century due to its secret, high-altitude reconnaissance flights.

The 1950s and '60s was an intense period when a number of Americans reported UFO sightings and alien visitations. These sensational events lent cinematic credence to a number of Hollywood space blockbusters, including Steven Spielberg’s "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" and "ET," and George Lucas’s "Star Wars."

Now it appears the unidentified flying objects were more fact than fantasy, while the mind behind them was not quite alien.

CDC Advises Delayed Breastfeeding To Boost Vaccine Efficacy

Ten researchers from the CDC’s National Centers for Immunization and Respiratory Disease (NCIRD) released a paper arguing that because the immune-boosting effects of breastmilk inhibit the effects of the live oral rotavirus vaccine, nursing mothers should delay breastfeeding their infants.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, CDC, the same CDC that actually lied in their report that vaccines do not cause autism, admits that breastmilk boosts the baby's immune system, but wants mothers to stop breast feeding because it interferes with the commercially supplied vaccines!

Yeah, that makes a lot of sense ... for the vaccine makers!

Russia Says Ukrainian Nazis Pay Blackwater for Training

The Russian Government’s Tass ‘news’ agency is alleging that “The US private military company Academi (formerly known as Blackwater) … has confirmed to the Kiev authorities its readiness to start training an experimental battalion of 550 men as of January at the request of Ukraine’s General Staff,” according to an unnamed source, which source is probably one of the few remaining anti-nazi bureaucrats still remaining in the Ukrainian Government. The reported price of this Blackwater (a.k.a. “Xe,” a.k.a. “Academi”) training contract is $3.5 million.

Why is it illegal for communities to protect themselves from harm?

The supposed answer to that question is the Supremacy Clause of the US Constitution, Article 6, paragraph 2:

“This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding.”

By inference, the individual states declare their own supremacy when local communities try to nullify or avoid state statutes.

Keep in mind that the US Constitution enumerates powers granted to the federal government, and reserves all other powers for the states or the people. But this restraint has been trampled on so many times it’s barely visible under the tonnage of federal law and regulation.

Israeli settlers attack US consulate convoy in the West Bank (Updated)

On Friday, American security personnel accompanying staff from the United States Consulate in Jerusalem drew their weapons on violent Israeli settlers who attacked a two vehicle U.S. convoy outside the Palestinian town of Turmusaya in the West Bank. Consulate staff were investigating a incident which took place on private Palestinian land on the first night of 2015 when six thousand recently planted olive saplings were uprooted, and dozens of old olive trees were destroyed by violent Jewish settlers from an illegal outpost, Adei Ad, near Turmusaya.

America stabs its Arab allies in the back

The US-Arab alliance is one of the strangest and most interesting in the world, perhaps even in history. It is certainly the most one-sided, whereby America takes everything from its Arab allies and gives them nothing in return. The US attitude is disrespectful, untactful and inflexible. Washington gives Arab governments nothing to work with and nothing to give to their people, not even a fig leaf for appearances' sake.

The most recent example of this disrespect by the US was its open contempt for its Arab allies when it voted against the draft UN Security Council resolution to end the Israeli occupation of part of the occupied Palestinian territories. This resolution is based on what is known as "international legitimacy" despite the fact that the Palestinians went to the Security Council stripped of all their historical rights. However, this did not help them or gain the acceptance of Washington, which seems to disregard the Palestinians in particular and the Arabs in general.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What those Arab oil nations ought to do is all at once agree to sell their oil for the Ruble and the Yuan.

PRINCE ANDREW & JEFFREY EPSTEIN: Can the Palace really make the denial stick?

Prince Andrew’s flat and emphatic denial of any complicity in abuse of a minor in 2001 suggests just how seriously Buckingham Palace is taking the resurfacing allegations about his sex life.

I first posted on this affair just over two years ago. The circumstantial and affidavit evidence now available in a new Court case accusing Jeffrey Epstein of pimping minors for the sexual gratification of himself and others is nothing more than consistent with the charges that sent him to jail four years ago. What remains a mystery wrapped up in socialite privilege is how Epstein managed to spend just 13 months in the poky, when trafficking charges such as those usually carry 10-20 year sentence guidance in US Courts.

Iran denies ‘tentative uranium agreement’ with US

Washington and Tehran came a step closer to agreeing on shipping part of Iran’s enriched uranium stockpile to Russia, AP reported on Friday, citing diplomatic sources. However, Iran denied that any such agreement took place.

According to two diplomatic sources who spoke to the Associated Press, the December round of nuclear talks produced a “catalogue of areas of potential accord”, while outlining differing approaches to remaining stick points.

One of the breakthroughs, sources say, comes as Iran allegedly “tentatively agreed” to transport a large portion of its uranium stockpile to Russia for conversion into reactor fuel.

However, Iran’s Foreign Ministry has denied reports that it has agreed with the US on the list of nuclear materials to be delivered to Russia. On Friday, Iran's foreign ministry spokeswoman Marzieh Afkham said "no agreement on any nuclear topic" had taken place.

As the anniversary of the January 2011 revolution draws closer, the anti coup alliance led by the Muslim brotherhood has called for fresh week long protests dubbed "together to liberate and purge".

Following the Friday prayers, thousands of protesters held rallies in Cairo and several other cities, calling for the ouster of President Abdul Fatah el Sisi and demanding an immediate end to military rule.

Security forces attacked protesters in Hadaeq Helwan district south of the capital Cairo. A protester was killed in the scuffles.
Protesters also chanted anti Sisi slogans and called on all Egyptians to put their differences aside, and to stand against those who protesters called the "coup orchestrators".

One killed in Gaza by Egypt border guards: Sources

At least one Palestinian has been killed in the frontier town of Rafah in the besieged Gaza Strip by Egyptian soldiers firing from across the border, sources say.

"A Palestinian citizen, aged 23, was killed by Egyptian army fire on the Egyptian-Palestinian border and the security agencies are investigating the incident to find out the motives," Gaza's Interior Ministry spokesman Iyad al-Bazm said in a message on his Facebook page on Friday.

The Egyptian forces shot the unnamed man "in the back and the bullet settled in the heart. He died on the spot," Gaza’s emergency services spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra said.

On Tuesday, Egyptian authorities said they would double the width of a security buffer zone currently under construction along the Gaza border, claiming that the move will prevent Gazans from entering Egypt.

New Study Finds GMO Soy Toxic to Kidneys, Liver and Reproduction

In North America, approximately 75 to 89% of the soy beans grown are genetically modified (GM). One may not realize it, but this is concerning news – especially because recent research found that GM soy is toxic to the kidneys, liver, and more.

There isn’t just one smoking gun anymore pointing at GMO toxicology. There is now an entire arsenal of scientific research proving that genetically modified organisms adversely affect the body. In yet another new study conducted by Egyptian researchers, rats given GM soy were found to have deadly amounts of toxicity in their kidneys, liver, testes, sperm, blood and even DNA.

Is there any question anymore about the true poisons that are biotech’s squalid wares?

Among these offenses is murder, forcible deportation or transfer of members of a group, torture, persecution of Palestinians (an “identifiable group”) and “the crime of Apartheid.”

Salacious new chapter in Florida billionaire’s sex scandal

For years, the story of South Florida billionaire money manager Jeffrey Epstein — involving allegations of human trafficking, an international underage sex ring, a Palm Beach mansion, a private island in the Caribbean, and an FBI investigation — has been tabloid fodder in the United States and the United Kingdom.

Now, Fort Lauderdale lawyer Brad Edwards is helping to write a new chapter in this murky and sordid tale. Representing two alleged victims identified only as Jane Doe #3 and Jane Doe #4, Edwards filed a motion in U.S. District Court in West Palm Beach that alleges well-known criminal defense lawyer Alan Dershowitz and Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, were involved in Epstein’s international sex ring.

Apple facing lawsuit over shrinking iPhone and iPad storage following iOS 8 update

Apple is facing a lawsuit over the amount of space that the iOS 8 update takes up on iPhone, iPads, and iPods.

The complaint, filed in California by Miami residents Paul Orshan and Christopher Endara, claims that the 16GB iPhones and iPads they purchased had less than the stated amount of usable space, and that this was further reduced after upgrading his iPhone 5S from iOS 7 to iOS 8.

The complaint claims that iOS 8 can occupy more than 23 percent of the storage available on some devices, and further goes on to claim that upgrading devices from iOS 7 to 8 can cause users to lose a further 1.3GB of storage.

UN Seeks to Criminalize Free Speech, Citing “Human Rights”

Under the guise of advancing what the United Nations refers to as “human rights,” the dictator-dominated global body is waging a full-blown assault on free-speech rights by pressuring governments to criminalize so-called “hate speech.” Indeed, working alongside radical government-funded activist groups and anti-liberty politicians around the world, the UN and other totalitarian-minded forces have now reached the point where they openly claim that what they call “international law” actually requires governments to ban speech and organizations they disapprove of. Critics, though, are fighting back in an effort to protect freedom of speech — among the most fundamental of all real rights.

The AirAsia jet which plunged into the Java Sea rose up as fast as a fighter jet and then dropped almost vertically into the water as if being thrust down by a giant hand, crash experts agreed today.

Their conclusion is that the Airbus 320-200 was in the grip of weather so freakishly extreme that there was nothing the pilots could have done to save the jet and all 162 people on board.
