Frigid Boston plows away record snowfall for Super Bowl parade

A week of record snow and the prediction of even more to come won’t prevent the Boston area from celebrating the Super Bowl victory of the New England Patriots, though the parade originally scheduled for Tuesday was pushed back 24 hours.

“We look forward to celebrating with Patriots fans during better weather on Wednesday,” Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh said in a statement.

Banking on serious reform

Why do Canadians allow private banks to profit off our public debt when the Bank of Canada is legislated to provide low- or no-interest loans for human capital and infrastructure spending? The Bank of Canada has not issued such loans since 1974, after it funded Canada out of the Great Depression, the Second World War, the infrastructure boom, universal health care, universities and colleges, CBC and more. Monday, three judges upheld the previous ruling of justiciability. The next step is to determine the statutes of the Bank of Canada Act and if they have been subverted by conspiracy.

The monopoly of private banks' exclusive privilege of lending money to governments will, for the second time in our history, soon be put on trial. The first time it was debated in the House of Commons, it led to the creation of the Bank of Canada. It's time to restore the Bank of Canada and jail the banksters.

NYPD Commissioner: Because Terrorism And Protests Are Roughly The Same Thing, A New Special Unit Will Handle Both

The NYPD has created yet another special unit to handle the myriad problems that arise from being terrorists' occasional target. The SRG (Strategic Response Group) will be tasked with handling certain situations, most of which did not occur in New York City.

So… it's designed for dealing with protests -- the most recent of which were kicked off by the clearing of a cop who choked an unarmed man to death. The other two incidents have nothing to do with New York other than the fact that the NYPD sent its own officers overseas at the request of nobody.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Commissioner Bratton: how DARE you possibly conflate peaceful protest with terrorism?!?

It is quite obvious to me that it has been a very, very, long time since you read the Constitution and Bill of Rights, this government's original Contract with America. It is very possibly high time you reviewed at these documents.

To all who plan professional symposiums and conferences, please eschew New York as though it were kryptonite. And to all thinking travel brokers, please do the same.

With the creation of this new police division, Commissioner Bratton has made visiting New York City hazardous to your health, because you may well get shot dead,or tazed into a heart attack for having done absolutely nothing wrong or illegal.

Larry Silverstein files Billion $ lawsuit against Airliners

The developer rebuilding the World Trade Center in New York told a
federal appeals court that he is entitled to recoup billions of dollars
from two airlines, even though he has already collected USD$4 billion in
insurance money for the September 11, 2001, attacks that destroyed the
site.

Lawyers for Larry Silverstein and his World Trade Center Properties
urged the 2nd US Circuit Court of Appeals in New York to overturn a
lower court ruling barring him from pursuing damages against United
Continental Holdings and American Airlines Group, whose planes crashed
into the twin towers.

But the airlines said the insurance money was more than enough to
compensate Silverstein for the fair market value of the lease he held
for the property.

S&P to pay $1.4 billion settlement to end probe stemming from '08 recession

One of the world's biggest credit rating agencies has agreed to pay United States prosecutors nearly $1.4 billion to settle claims it defrauded investors ahead of the 2008 financial crisis.

Under the terms of the settlement acknowledged on Tuesday this week, Wall Street giant Standard & Poor's will pay a total of $1.375 billion in order to settle allegations that it knowingly defrauded investors by manipulating interest rates ahead of the 2008 financial crisis.

S&P's parent company, McGraw Hill Financial Inc., said in a statement that the agreement consists of two major payments: $687.5 million to the US Department of Justice, and $687.5 million to 19 states and the District of Columbia, settling federal and regional lawsuits filed over the recession.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This agreement is only a slap on the wrist for a company of this financial magnitude.

And I see money going to the DOJ and to various states: but by what mechanism will those who were defrauded get even a portion of their money back?

And AGAIN, no one goes to jail, not even to a "club Fed"?!?

EVERYONE who signed off and/or participated in this con job should be doing hard time, and not at a Club Fed; this is the only way to break the cycle of financial thievery in large financial institutions.

Of course, given the large amounts of donations financial institutions give lavishly to both political parties, both overtly and covertly, the above will only happen when pigs fly.

Two Leaks Reveal How TAFTA/TTIP's Regulatory Co-operation Body Will Undermine Sovereignty And Democracy

But it's hard to see how those non-tariff barriers can be harmonized without a race to the bottom in terms of regulations, since no one is calling for a race to the top. Even "mutual recognition," which would allow both standards to be used, would inevitably see the lower standard becoming the norm because it would be cheaper to implement, and thus offer competitive advantages.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In general, all that is great for major corporations turns out to be quite lousy for We the People; this TTIP agreement certainly demonstrates that.

More Comcast customers write in, report name changes of “whore,” “dummy”

As if Comcast's recent account name change to “asshole” wasn’t bad enough, there are new reports of more rude names like "whore," "dummy," and “Fakoe Boz.”

According to the travel website BoardingArea, which first broke the story this week of the earlier vulgar naming incident, more users have written in with their own reports of Comcast naming chicanery.

Comcast did not immediately respond to Ars’ request for comment. Previously, the company told Ricardo—the Spokane, Washington customer who was dubbed “asshole"—that it was sorry.

JON STEWART’S FAVOURITE GOVERNOR IN ACTION

There is nothing more sacrilegious than a sitting New Jersey governor cheering for the Dallas Cowboys, and when Chris Christie did such an evil thing last month, a Jersey radio host got his revenge. During 94WIP’s annual Wing Bowl, The Morning Show‘s Angelo Cataldi released video from a June interview his show did with Christie, in which the governor completely missed his chair and fell flat onto his backside.

According to 94WIP, Cataldi was “appalled” by Christie’s Judasing of the Dallas Cowboys, and took it one step further during Wing Bowl by bringing in a Christie lookalike, as well as a doppelganger of Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.

An Iranian charity distributes food among poor and homeless Palestinians in the war-torn Gaza Strip, Press TV reports.

The Iranian charity organization, Imam Khomeini Relief Foundation, distributed thousands of packages of foodstuff among impoverished and homeless Palestinian families in the besieged Gaza Strip.

“Imam Khomeini Relief foundation has provided generous support for the people of Gaza, especially those who lost their homes” in the latest Israeli onslaught on the blockaded territory, Wasim Wadeya from the charity organization said.

“This is a very important project when we provide warm meals for displaced families who have been living on canned or dried foods,” he added.

Raúl Castro Puts the Ball in the U.S. Court

The first public speech by the Cuban leader would define whether Cuba and its government would falter, or whether it had some magic formula for managing the subversive plan created by the White House.

If we read the reports filed by most journalists, Castro only said that changes to Cuba’s internal affairs would not be permitted. But he said much more than that, even delineating the principles that would govern the talks over bilateral relations.

Yet it’s almost as though the reporters couldn’t be bothered.

And suddenly, we are seeing a torrent of Miami “consultants” trying to capitalize on the process by issuing imaginative statements about what they think will happen next.

Mercury levels on the rise in Hawaiian yellowfin tuna

Mercury concentrations in tuna are increasing by nearly four percent a year, according to a new University of Michigan-led study, which suggests rising atmospheric levels of toxin are to blame.

Researchers came to this conclusion using the findings from three previously published reports, which studied yellowfin tuna caught near Hawaii in 1971, 1998 and 2008. In the studies, scientists tested the tuna’s muscle tissues, finding that nearly all of the mercury they detected was the toxic methylmercury.

Republicans gutting Dodd-Frank as Wall St. goes subprime again ... It is not mortgages but subprime car loans that U.S. banks are repackaging now for foreign investors ... Teams of bank lobbyists [are] rewriting laws up on Capitol Hill these days ... Little by little, these influence-buyers are gutting and filleting the Dodd-Frank Act, the package of bank regulations that was among the few big accomplishments of the Obama administration during the two years when Democrats controlled Congress.

Vaccines cause sudden death, proves document hidden by Big Pharma for two years

An Italian court has unearthed a formerly classified document that proves vaccines cause death, and that vaccine companies don't want you to know this. As published on the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM) website, a 1,271-page report by British drug firm GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) reveals that certain combination vaccines administered to children are known to cause sudden death, but the company chose to obscure and conceal this in official safety reports.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Even worse, to protect the pharmaceutical companies,m the myth of "Shaken Baby Syndrome" was created to drop the blame for the babies' deaths onto the parents, many of whom were sent to jail.

The 6 Grand Illusions That Keep Us Enslaved to the Matrix

We live in a world of illusion. So many of the concerns that occupy the mind and the tasks that fill the calendar arise from planted impulses to become someone or something that we are not. This is no accident. As we are indoctrinated into this authoritarian-corporate-consumer culture that now dominates the human race, we are trained that certain aspects of our society are untouchable truths, and that particular ways of being and behaving are preferred.

Psychopaths disempower people in this way. They blind us with never ceasing barrages of suggestions and absolutes that are aimed at shattering self-confidence and confidence in the future.

How Wall Street got snowed on weather derivatives

A few years ago, the market for financial contracts based on snowfall was, for lack of a better phrase, heating up. More and more firms began popping up to sell the specialized weather derivatives. Insurance firms hired traders who would focus on buying and selling the contracts. The Chicago Mercantile Exchange listed dozens of contracts based on snowfall in numerous cities that could be traded like stocks, and were expected to rise and fall daily based on the forecast. A number of large Wall Street firms seemed interested in getting into the market.

These days, though, Wall Street’s market for betting on snow has, well, melted. The CME says that not a single snow-related weather contract traded in 2013. That’s down from 510 trades in 2011.

US Slaps Venezuelans with New Sanctions

‘US wanted Sgt Bergdahl back from captivity, but silenced’

The US made an exception for Bowe Bergdahl, swapping him for five Gitmo prisoners as the Pentagon could not afford to have him in captivity forever, former US marine Ross Caputi told RT.But the military did not want Bergdahl to speak, either.

Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl was captured by the Taliban-aligned Haqqani network in eastern Afghanistan in 2009. He was released last May after being swapped for five detainees from the Guantanamo Bay detention camp. Bergdahl was rather critical in his statements about the US Army. In his e-mails to the parents sergeant wrote: “I’m ashamed to be an American. The US army is the biggest joke the world has to laugh at. It is the army of liars, backstabbers, fools and bullies.” Now the US government wants to charge Bergdahl with desertion.

US sending weapons to Kiev ‘not the answer’ to Ukraine crisis – White House adviser

Supplying more arms to the Ukrainian government won’t solve the crisis in the country, a senior Obama administration official said. It comes after reports that some figures in the White House are advocating such a move.

Instead, “the best way” lies through imposing more economic sanctions on Russia, the White House official added.

In 2014 there were six eurozone countries whose debt-to-GDP ratio went over the 100% threshold. Two additional countries will pass that barrier in 2015.

The Maastricht Treaty on which the euro was founded was designed to keep "sound fiscal policies", with debt limited to 60% of GDP (not 100%), and annual deficits no greater than 3% of GDP."

Every country in the eurozone, including Germany, has been in violation of those rules.

New Jersey Teens Just Learned What Happens When You Start A Business In America

Case in point, last week, two teenagers in New Jersey were going around their neighborhood advertising their snow-shoveling service right before the big storm hit.

Seems pretty enterprising. But in the New America where security trumps all else, a local resident called the police to report about the teens’ “suspicious activity”.

It’s the starkest example of how “if you see something say something” is one of the most enslaving, destructive mantras in history.

Police actually came out to investigate since, apparently running a snow-shoveling business is something that only criminal terrorists would do.

Obama Tax Plan: President Goes All In on Confiscation

His tenure has already witnessed a greater accumulation of federal debt than any other time in US history. It is unsustainable based on the nation’s taxing traditions. In recent days, however, Obama has hinted at a new paradigm in federal revenue collection: confiscation.

Last week, the White House floated a proposal to levy a one-time tax on the $2 trillion in foreign earnings American corporations have overseas. The United States imposes the highest corporate income tax rate in the world. It also, unlike every major nation, taxes profits on business activities conducted completely outside the US. In essence, the US tax code follows American citizens and corporations anywhere they travel around the world.

The US official insisted the claim was “complete nonsense,” though he similarly provided no insight into where the talks actually stand, in keeping with the administration’s desire to keep such details secret.

Sentenced to death at the world’s worst zoo: Dozens of animals starve at animal ‘attraction’ in Gaza

Flies buzz around the emaciated body of a lion as it decays in the sun; nearby the mummified corpse baboon lies on the ground- it's head still tilted up as though looking out of its enclosure, across from it a porcupine's brittle spines protrude from its lifeless body.

They are among the dozens of animals which have died at Khan Younis zoo in the impoverished Gaza Strip after they were left without food.

The hearty snowstorm is now wreaking havoc along the East Coast/New England before taking off to sea tonight. The main weather headlines now deal with the bitter cold, near-record low temperatures tonight as well as icy spots on roadways. Blowing and drifting snow as well as salt not working at its optimum under these weather conditions will be the culprit for the possibility of icy roads, parking lots, sidewalks, and untreated surfaces.

President Obama's Budget: It's Always a Good Time to Spend More!

Barack Obama has released his budget proposal for fiscal year 2016, which begins in October. The best thing about the plan is that it's released on time this year. That's been all too rare an occurrence, and not just for the president: One of the most stunning yet under-reported stories of the past several years is the unwillingness and inability of the federal government to hit basic deadlines when it comes to budget issues. Of course, coming up with a plan, which is typically a wish-list, is only the beginning of a budget process that has gotten seriously FUBAR during the Obama years.

‘Secret’ Gold Repatriation: The Banksters’ Newest Bullion Scam

As with most of the One Bank’s self-created economic “crises”; its preferred method of dealing with this problem has been to pretend it didn’t exist. But (as the banksters are now discovering) such self-delusion does not suffice when the nations who believe that the U.S. government is storing gold on their behalf ask that this “gold” be returned to them.

First it was Germany, and then it was Austria, Belgium, Netherlands, and France. All of these nations have either made formal requests or statements of intention that they want their gold. It was the first (and most-public) of these “gold repatriations” which exposed the obvious fact that the gold supposedly stored in the U.S. wasn’t there.

A total of 28 people have been arrested in Italy as part of a drug investigation involving a woman who shortly served as an aide to former prime minister Silvio Berlusconi, local reports said on Thursday.

Police detained various drug smugglers across central and southern Italy, including a policeman on duty at Rome's Fiumicino International Airport and some cleaning staff at the same airport.

Assets worth around 4 million euros (4.5 million U.S. dollars) were also seized in relation to the operation.

David Blanchflower: Young people are suffering from austerity in the UK as well as in Greece

Enough is enough. At some point the Greek people were bound to say they were done with austerity, and last week they stood up and said we need some hope. It was time to get out of their Great Depression. What else could they do? Austerity, according to the European Commission/European Central Bank/International Monetary Fund “Troika”, was supposed to lead to the sunlit uplands. Always a pipe dream.

Overly tight fiscal and monetary policy was inevitably going to crush the Greek economy, and so it did. Austerity resulted in a drop in GDP since the start of the crisis of 28.8 per cent. Greece has a health crisis, with HIV rates up 700 per cent. Malaria has returned for the first time in 40 years, and there is widespread malnutrition. The Greek healthcare system is collapsing as a result of spending cuts, and children are not being vaccinated. Reductions in pay have resulted in thousands of doctors leaving for the UK, Germany and Scandinavia.

What the ECB is doing to Greek banks is outrageous

The European Central Bank (ECB) is threatening to withdraw emergency funding from Greek banks if the Greek government doesn't do what it wants.

The central bank's actions toward Greece occur less than two months after secret letters revealed that the ECB threatened to pull emergency funding from Irish banks if the state did not apply for a bailout, in what many saw as an overreach into the sovereign affairs of the country. The ECB later pretended that Ireland had applied for its bailout voluntarily. The letters revealed that in fact the ECB had required the Irish government to apply.

The locations sold to Sprint would operate under the wireless carrier’s name, meaning RadioShack would cease to exist as a stand-alone retailer, said the people, who declined to be identified because the talks aren’t public.

Consumption Crashes In December: “The Country Has Clearly Entered Recession”

If you watch the mainstream media on a daily basis and consume the “official” assessments of the health of our economy you’re likely thinking that all is well and good. President Obama’s recovery has taken hold and prosperity is sure to return. But what if the narrative being disseminated to the general public is nothing but conjecture? In the following analysis from the always informative and entertaining James Quinn of The Burning Platform you’ll get an understanding of what’s really going on under the hood. What you’ll notice is that, while the media has picked and chosen specific talking points to create a perception of economic health, they have purposefully failed to provide a complete picture to the American people. Frankly, the information being spewed by official sources simply doesn’t mesh with the actual data.

The Baltic Dry Index dropped another 3% today to 590 - its first time below 600 since 1986 and not far from the all-time record low of 554 in July 1986. Of course, the absolute level is shrugged off by the over-supply-ists and the 'well fuel prices are down'-ists but the velocity of collapse (now over 60% in the last 3 months) suggests this far more than some 'blip' discrepancy between supply and demand - this is a structural convergence of massive mal-investment meets economic reality.

Obama Budget Creates Second Death Tax

Under current law, when you inherit an asset your basis in the asset is the higher of the fair market value at the time of death or the decedent's original basis. Almost always, the fair market value is higher.

Under the Obama proposal, when you inherit an asset your basis will simply be the decedent's original basis.

Example: Dad buys a house for $10,000. He dies and leaves it to you. The fair market value on the date of death is $100,000. You sell it for $120,000. Under current law, you have a capital gain of $20,000 (sales price of $120,000 less step up in basis of $100,000). Under the Obama plan, you have a capital gain of $110,000 (sales price of $120,000 less original basis of $10,000).

What would you call a veteran who was tortured, survived miraculously, got elected to the U.S. Senate, sent more young men to die in a foreign war, voted to deny them jobs and benefits, and yet demands the arrest and full prosecution of those who exercise the constitutional rights he supposedly fought for? To borrow phrasing from you, Senator, I would call you low-life scum.

Beyond Snowden: US General Cartwright has been indicted for espionage

US General James Cartwright was regarded by Washington insiders as ‘Obama’s General’, and now he’s facing prosecution for blowing the whistle on ‘Operation Olympic Games’ which planted the Stuxnet and Flame viruses in Iranian nuclear facilities in order derail Iran’s civilian nuclear program. At closer examination, it appears that Cartwright’s revelations didn’t so much harm US interests per say, but they hindered Israeli ambitions towards a war with Iran.

But why espionage? What is the line between “whistleblowing” and “espionage” in America today?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Can you imagine the fear?

Maybe you don't have to. Maybe you are old enough to remember Three Mile Island, or Chernobyl. Maybe you're one of the people living around the Pacific where the radiation meters have been singing their songs of death since Fukushima.

Can you feel the horror? There is an invisible killer dancing in the air. Maybe hiding in that rain drop. You cannot know for sure.

That metallic taste in your mouth; is it being that scared? Or is it something ... worse?

You cannot know for sure. There is an invisible killer dancing in the air.

You wish you could stop breathing, but of course you can't. And with each breath comes an unspoken question; Is this the breath during which I inhale my own end? Is there an irrevocable link between this breath and my final breath to come? Is this the breath that deforms my unborn child? Is this the breath that transforms my future from an old age filled with family and friends, to loneliness, lingering pain, and a horrible death?

You cannot know for sure. There is an invisible killer dancing in the air.

Or maybe it was on that stamp you licked, or in the wine you drank, or the cookie you ate.

Maybe you showered with the killer, slept with the killer, shared your clothes with the killer.

You cannot know for sure. There is an invisible killer dancing in the air.

Now imagine living with that fear, day after day after day; fear for yourself, fear for the lives and health of your loved ones. Imagine the long sleepless nights wondering if the next day will invite the killer into your home; if the rain will wash the killer onto the food you will eat.

Imagine.

Then imagine a monster so evil they would inflict that endless fear onto innocent and unoffending people.

Then stop imagining, because it really happened, but just once but twice.

What happened by accident at Three-Mile Island, Chernobyl, and Fukushima was done intentionally by Israel to the people of Iraq, when Israel bombed the nuclear power plant at Osirik in the erroneous assumption that Iraq was building nuclear weapons. Then Israel did it again in Syria. Thankfully, there were no nuclear weapons at the Iraq or Syrian targets, or the people of Iraq and Syria would have suffered what those people living downwind from Three-Mile Island, Chernobyl, and Fukushima (and indeed the whole northern hemisphere) all suffered.

But no doubt, those innocent and unoffending Iraqi and Syrian people knew the fear of wondering whether the silent killer was there in their homes moment to moment, just as you are wondering whether the silent killer is in your home this very moment, even as you read these words.

Israel did that to those people; cursed them with that endless dread that lingered for months on end.

And now Israel wants to bomb more nuclear facilities in Iran or infect it with a computer virus to cause a melt-down, so that what happened by accident at Three-Mile Island, Chernobyl, and Fukushima, will be done deliberately to the people of Iran, who have not invaded or threatened anyone.

There are indeed monsters living among us.

And we know them by their deeds.

Just think about that when you are lying in the dark, afraid to breathe.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), who is considering a 2016 presidential bid, said on Sunday it would require 10,000 American "boots on the ground" to stop the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in Syria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Okay, Lindsey, if you really feel that way about it... Here's your rifle. Here's your parachute. We ran out of the desert camo but here's a bright da-glo orange jumpsuit from the CIA's torture centers. Watch your head climbing into that transport aircraft, and we will call Syria and Iraq and tell him you are on your way to kick their butts all by yourself.

But We The People remember the lies about stolen incubators that tricked us into the first invasion of Iraq.

We The People remember the lies about Saddam's nuclear weapons that tricked us into the second invasion of Iraq.

We The People remember how only a year ago you tried to trick us into war with Syria with more lies about poison gas.

We The People remember how there weren't really torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin or a Spanish mine in Havane Harbor, but how there really WERE weapons on board the Lusitania.

In short, We The People remember all the lies, frauds, and deceptions used to trick us into wars of conquest, to send our young people out to die in wars created out of thin air by and for the money-junkies. I think it is time that wee have a new rule in America; that those who want war are the first to the front lines. You are all splendidly brave with the lives of other peoples' children. Let's see the true measure of your courage and commitment to war.

You first!

U.S. taking new look at giving arms to Ukraine forces - NYT

President Barack Obama's administration is taking a new look at providing Ukrainian forces with defensive weapons and equipment in the face of a rebel offensive that shattered a five-month truce, the New York Times reported on Sunday.

The newspaper quoted U.S. officials as saying Secretary of State John Kerry and U.S. Joint Chiefs Chairman Martin Dempsey were open to discussions of the idea and that NATO military commander General Philip Breedlove now supported providing such lethal aid.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Such a move would be tantamount to declaring war against Russia.

But of course, unfortunately, just because something is, potentially, the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly counter-productive move the US government could possibly make, is absolutely no guarantee that the US government won't do it.

Kerry Cancels Plan to Visit Putin in Moscow

Secretary of State John Kerry has canceled unannounced plans to visit Russian President Vladimir Putin in Moscow next week, a U.S. official told ABC News.

The two were expected to discuss the crisis in Ukraine, where the United States blames Russia for arming and funding the separatist forces. The U.S. has also accused Russia of sending its troops across the border to bolster the rebels. Russia has denied the accusations.

The decision to cancel the visit came just days after an alleged Russian spy ring was broken up in New York, and after last weekend’s offensive by Russian-backed rebels in eastern Ukraine. This week, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew suggested the United States could expand sanctions on Russia as the fighting in Ukraine continues.

Kerry is still expected to attend next week’s Munich Security Conference, and the possibility remains he may meet his Russian counterpart, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, there.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sanctions are most generally a prelude to war.

And I would like to very politely point out to those precious few in the bowels of power in DC that at this point, the US military doesn't have the troop strength, the manufacturing, or the money to guarantee a successful outcome to a conventional war against Russia.

St Louis Police Threaten to Quit or Slowdown If Civilian Oversight Passes

St. Louis, MO? A bill to create a seven-member civilian oversight board for the St. Louis Police Department is looking like a sure bet to pass next month. The majority of the Board of Aldermen and even Mayor Francis are attaching their names to it.

As the bill was being discussed on Thursday, Jeff Roorda, a spokesperson for the St. Louis Police Officer?s Association, assaulted a woman while wearing an ?I Am Darren Wilson? bracelet. His violent outburst may have stolen the headlines for the day, but there was also some glorious news to come from the union rep.

Roorda announced that St. Louis police officers will quit the department or do only the bare minimum on patrol if the city creates the proposed civilian oversight board.

The finding comes in the wake of warnings by Britain’s top doctor that the rise of drug-resistant superbugs could trigger an ‘apocalyptic scenario’ in which even routine operations such as hip surgery become deadly because we have run out of antibiotics.

Washington’s Not-So-Faulty Logic: Back al Qaeda-Linked Rebels in Libya, Crush Non-al-Qaeda-linked Rebels in Ukraine

Washington Times is reporting on new revelations about Obama/Clinton’s illegal decision to kill people in Libya.

US intelligence, the top human rights groups, and scholars say Obama/Clinton’s claims of an impending “genocide” in Libya, the pretext for US planting and detonation of explosives in Libya, were unfounded.

The Times notes that the false claims were partially “rooted in Gadhafi’s Feb. 22, 2011, speech in which he pledged to “sanitize Libya an inch at a time” and “clear them of these rats.”

However:

A month later, Gadhafi delivered another speech in which he made it clear that only those standing against him with arms would face reprisal.

Here's Some Frightening Honesty (Courtesy Of The US Congress)

A member of my staff caught an obscure resolution that was introduced in the US House of Representatives last week—Resolution no. 41.

The fact that there was essentially no coverage of this Resolution really shows how the mainstream media is completely turning a blind eye to the true fiscal situation of the United States of America.

The entire point of the resolution is to say that the federal government is broke.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Resolution 41 admits the federal Government is basically broke, and recommends that the federal Government which allowed (even encouraged) the 2008 mortgage-backed securities fraud that emptied state and privater pension funds not be responsible for bailing them out, and that these defunded pension funds "restructure" to reduce costs (meaning cheat the people dependent on those pensions).

Globalism Wins as Israel Plans “Free Trade” With Putin, Beijing

As the world is increasingly divided up into geographic “regions” under regional regimes cobbled together under the guise of pseudo-“free trade,” Israeli authorities are now quietly working to create what they call “free trade zones” with both the Communist Chinese regime and the Kremlin-dominated Eurasian Economic Union (member countries shown in green). The negotiations, officially announced this week, come as globalist plotters around the world accelerate their now-open efforts to subvert national sovereignty at a regional level — all on the road toward what top officials from Beijing and Moscow to London and Washington, D.C., regularly and openly refer to as their “New World Order.”

Ukraine "Truce"? Tanks Are Rolling In Poland As NATO Plans Permanent Eastern European Bases

With Ukraine, Germany, and France all expressing their concern this morning about "conflict escalation" between pro-Russian separatists and the Ukraine military, the so-called "truce" appears to be hanging by a thread of semanticism (despite OSCE's please for respect of the cease-fire and the demarcation line). Today's triple whammy of 'escalation' appears more focused on the non-Russian side as first, France begins sending tanks into Poland; second, Ukraine shifts its tanks to the front-line; and third - and potentially most inflammatory for Putin - NATO has confirmed plans to create permanent command centers in Eastern Europe. Putin has not responded yet but reports of 'nuclear bombers' flying above the English Channel "with transponders turned off," suggests the sabre rattling continues.

'Chance for a new start': Croatia writes off debts of 60,000 poorest citizens

Croatian government have gotten creditors on board a plan to erase the debts of some 60,000 poorest citizens. The “fresh start” scheme targets less than 1 percent of the entire debt, but is hoped to boost the economy in the long-term.

The unorthodox measure was voted for by the government on January 15 and comes into force on Monday. To be eligible to participate debtors must have no savings or property, have a debt no greater than about $5,100 and live on welfare or an income of no higher than $138 per month.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a token gesture. In all probability the debts could never have been repaid, and this is a segment of society unlikely to start new businesses to move the economy.

The plan would actually have merit were the debts of the middile class erased.

Shelling of the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk is continuing practically non-stop with shells landing in civilian areas after mediators’ talks failed Saturday. Militia and Kiev forces are fighting for the strategically key area of Debaltsevo.

Officials of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) said at least three civilians have been killed by Ukrainian artillery fire targeting residential areas overnight.

Climate Change’s Bottom Line

It was 8 degrees in Minneapolis on a recent January day, and out on Interstate 394, snow whipped against the windshields of drivers on their morning commutes. But inside the offices of Cargill, the food conglomerate, Greg Page, the company’s executive chairman, felt compelled to talk about global warming.

“It would be irresponsible not to contemplate it,” Mr. Page said, bundled up in a wool sport coat layered over a zip-up sweater.

Iran successfully places domestically-made Fajr satellite into orbit

Iran has successfully placed into orbit the domestically-made Fajr (Dawn) satellite with President Hassan Rouhani issuing the order for its launch.

According to Press TV, the satellite is capable of staying in the space for 1.5 years and can taking and transmitting high-quality and accurate pictures to stations on earth.

Fajr satellite is technically characterized by an orbit which could promote from 250 to 450 km through a thruster or an engine.

It is the new generation of Omid (Hope) satellite, which was designed and manufactured by Iranian experts in 2009.

Climategate, the sequel: How we are STILL being tricked with flawed data on global warming

Puzzled by those “2014 hottest ever” claims, which were led by the most quoted of all the five official global temperature records – Nasa’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (Giss) – Homewood examined a place in the world where Giss was showing temperatures to have risen faster than almost anywhere else: a large chunk of South America stretching from Brazil to Paraguay.

Noting that weather stations there were thin on the ground, he decided to focus on three rural stations covering a huge area of Paraguay. Giss showed it as having recorded, between 1950 and 2014, a particularly steep temperature rise of more than 1.5C: twice the accepted global increase for the whole of the 20th century.

The rise of 'pro-Israelism' in American politics

The US-Israel special relationship is acknowledged universally as the unswayable force of politics in the Middle East. The theme is confessed ritually by every US president and Israeli prime minister, who have all claimed, more or less, that "the bond between Israel and the United States is rooted in more than our shared national interests; it's rooted in the shared values and shared stories of our people."

Commitment to this article of faith is a litmus test for anyone hoping to exercise power in American politics. Minor deviations can and do have major political consequences, a fact acknowledged last year by the conservative American commentator Tom Friedman, who disclosed that the first President Bush paid a massive political price for standing up to Israel back in 1990; Bush asserted US foreign policy towards Israeli settlements by conditioning $10 billion worth of loan guarantees on a total cessation of settlement construction. He was not re-elected for a second term.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There were other factors at work in that election. George H. W. Bush was in serious trouble. He had been able to hold the investigation into Iran-Contra at a distance, but he also knew that he would not be able to hold off the White House connection for another four years. So he arranged for the White House to go to the one Democrat he knew would keep the lid on the secret, then Democratic Governor of the state that was the US end of the guns and drugs pipeline, Bill Clinton.

But pissing off Israel didn't help.

How America's Sporting Events Have Turned into Mass Religious Events to Bless Wars and Militarism

The Fourth of July worship service that I attended last week—a game between the Red Sox and the Baltimore Orioles—was a day late because of a rescheduling caused by Tropical Storm Arthur. When the crowd sang “The Star-Spangled Banner” a gargantuan American flag descended to cover “the Green Monster,” the 37-foot, 2-inch-high wall in left field. Patriotic music blasted from loudspeakers. Col. Lester A. Weilacher, commander of the 66th Air Base Group at Massachusetts’ Hanscom Air Force Base, wearing a light blue short-sleeved Air Force shirt and dark blue pants, threw the ceremonial first pitch. A line of Air Force personnel stood along the left field wall. The fighter jets—our angels of death—that usually roar over the stadium on the Fourth were absent.

John McCain stands by Sarah Palin

Sen. John McCain says Sarah Palin "still has a strong base of support" if she decides to seek the Republicans' 2016 presidential nomination.

"I think that she ought to do whatever she feels that she would like to do. And I'm very supportive of anything that she does," the Arizona Republican said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union" -- adding that he plans to support South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, though, if he runs in 2016.

Blowback: Charlie Hebdo and the Contradictions of Western Policy

The Western defense of freedom of expression in the face of attacks by Islamic fundamentalists has not always been so unequivocal, however. Indeed, from the start of the Mohammed cartoon controversy, the support of some Western governments – including the French – for Jyllands Posten, Charlie Hebdo and other “offenders” has been tepid at best. For instance, far from defending the rights of Charlie Hebdo upon the paper’s publication of the cartoons in 2006, then French President Jacques Chirac promptly denounced what he termed as “obvious provocations” and warned that “anything that could offend other people’s convictions, in particular religious convictions, should be avoided.”

In this debate between classical Western freedoms and notions of Islamic piety, one of the few French leaders to clearly come down on the side of the former was then Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy. “All told, I prefer too much caricature to too much censorship,” Sarkozy dryly remarked.

Professor Sues University of Illinois Over Firing for “Uncivil” Gaza Tweets

A professor who was fired from a tenured position at the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign because of his tweets criticizing the Israeli government’s bombing of Gaza last year has filed a civil rights suit against the University and its top officials, saying that his firing violated his First Amendment right to free speech and other constitutional rights, and basic principles of academic freedom.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In an honest court system this guy would win, because the tweets in question were part of his private life, not his conduct while on campus. Israel's supporters pressured the university into firing him to try to scare other academics into obedient silence regarding Israel in their own private lives. If Steven Salaita wins his case and there is a huge settlement, the floodgates will open and Israel will find itself facing the reality of a nation where freedom of speech is reaffirmed.

Unveiling the Vatican’s justice report, Milano stopped short of naming those accused of possessing child pornography. Holy See spokesman Federico Lombardi however identified Josef Wesolowski, a disgraced former ambassador, as one of the people facing charges.

BEX ALERT - Support Of Israel Reason House Was Tagged With Swastikas, Frat Says

On Saturday morning – the holiest day of the week for Jews – swastikas spray painted in red on their Jewish frat house were the last thing these brothers expected to wake up to.

“I’m a freshman so I’ve never had to deal with such outward show of hate towards me and my people,” Itai Ofir said.

Ofir and his Jewish fraternity Alpha Epsilon Pi call it anti-Semitism at its worst.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is another obvious hate-crime hoax. The reason is simple. Other than Israel, nobody gives a damn about the Swastika any more! It's ancient history, and more to the point, it is a symbol of the side that lost WW2.

When you were a kid playing cops and robbers, or cowboys and Indians, you wanted to be on the winning side, either the cops or the cowboys. The smaller kids would have to be bullied into playing the Indians or the robbers. That is because people want to be on the winning side. Nobody wants to pretend to be the losers, and were it not for Israel constantly wagging the Nazis for propaganda purposes, they would be fading into historical obscurity which is where they belong.

The Failed 'Yemen Model'

Last September President Obama cited his drone program in Yemen as a successful model of US anti-terrorism strategy. He said that he would employ the Yemen model in his effort to "degrade and ultimately destroy" ISIS in Iraq and Syria.

But just a week ago, the government in Yemen fell to a Shite militia movement thought to be friendly to Iran. The US embassy in Yemen's capitol was forced to evacuate personnel and shut down operations.

If Yemen is any kind of model, it is a model of how badly US interventionism has failed.

Yemen is militarily important because whoever controls it controls access to the Red Sea from the Gulf of Aden.

Health authority and social services bosses have asked a judge to authorise forced entry into her home, "necessary restraint" and sterilisation, because she lacks the mental capacity to make decisions about treatment.

Israel: promised land for Jews … as long as they’re not black?

At the time, these ‘rescue’ missions were mired in controversy. Hailed by some Zionists as the inevitable homecoming of African Jews to the ‘birthplace’ of Judaism, to others it was a cynical ploy by the Israeli government to alter the demographics of Palestine. The airlifts were, literally, a means of importing Jews to the contested land en masse, no matter where they were from, in an effort to ‘improve’ the ratio of immigrant Israelis to native Palestinians. But now, twenty years on, how well have Ethiopian Jews assimilated into Israeli society? Has their communal story been one of success and full integration or have they been used primarily to boost Israel’s policy of colonising more of Palestine; to provide a ready pool of conscripts for the Israel Defence Forces (IDF); to provide a workforce for low-status manual labour; and to be treated like relative outcasts in the principally white Jewish community of Israel?

It is the nature of the forces of darkness to go after anyone who is engaged in actions that threaten the command towers of the negative. If you're getting serious opposition in your course, you could be going the right way (grin). The most important thing that anyone seeking to serve the forces of light has to remember is that absolute and convincing victory may not be the result of one's life efforts. Sometimes in war one winds up on a suicide mission for the greater good. Sometimes one is set out to draw the enemies attention away from a particular flank or strategy. Individual players need always be aware of their individual insignificance over the long course of the near incomprehensible intent of The Logos in its far reaching plan across centuries and millennia.

On January 27th, Ukraine’s Ministry of Defense headlined “Militants Continue to Suffer Losses,” and reported that four helicopters, and other weapons of the “militants,” were destroyed in battle, but no evidence was given to support the assertion.

Just two days prior, the (also pro-Government) Kiev Post had, in fact, bannered “Ukraine Hides Devastating Losses as Russia-Backed Fighters Surge Forward,” and reported “Ukraine’s worst-kept secret — that the Ukrainian army is drastically understating its casualties.” After detailing, there, what seems to be outrageous unconcern by the Government, for the welfare of troops it’s sending into battle (even by jamming battlefield-injured soldiers into regular civilian hospitals, which aren’t equipped to handle their injuries), this report ends with a doctor saying, “It’s bad everywhere. Yes, the soldiers are still standing at their positions ready to fight. But we don’t see any help coming for them.”

Harvard Doesn't Want to Give Money Back from Pedophile Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein

By 2006, when charges against Epstein were made public in Florida, he had fulfilled at least $6.5 million of that pledge, the reports said. Harvard's then president said he would not return the money because it was doing good for science.

Harvard declined to comment to Reuters, citing donor privacy.

Epstein's philanthropy website, jeffreyepstein.org, had until recently listed about 20 charities he gave to last year. By last week, the page was no longer visible.

The surest sign of a medical dictatorship is an aggressively enforced blockade against intelligent questions. Intelligent questions, after all, can destroy a medical police state because they expose the fraud of it.

Intelligent questions -- which the vaccine industry characterizes as "dangerous" -- are the greatest threat to the vaccine delusions still being played out across the world today, which is precisely why such questions are not allowed to be asked. Those daring to ask such questions are now being threatened with mass arrest and imprisonment -- that's how vulnerable the fraudulent vaccine industry has now become. It can be brought down by mere words if only those words are allowed to be circulated.

Four Corners of Fascism

In one corner we have the criminal banksters who, in concert with the criminal ruling class, have created policies that allow them to steal as much of our wealth as can be done until enough people cry foul. In another corner we have the criminal, treasonous NSA, once again working in concert with the criminal ruling class to steal all of our personal information and create a profile of our lives to determine if we are guilty of some crime that has not yet been committed. In still another corner we have the local police, working in concert, not only with the ruling class but with the military industrial complex in order to ensure we tow the line and don’t fight back once enough of us have determined that we have had our fill. In the last corner are the doctors and insurance companies who, work in concert with the ruling class to keep us hooked on their drugs or sedated so that we are unable to rally against these other three.
