Meet the Americans Who Put Together the Coup in Kiev

If the US State Department's Victoria Nuland had not said "Fuck the EU," few outsiders at the time would have heard of Ambassador Geoffrey Pyatt, the man on the other end of her famously bugged telephone call. But now Washington's man in Kiev is gaining fame as the face of the CIA-style "destabilization campaign" that brought down Ukraine's monumentally corrupt but legitimately elected President Viktor Yanukovych.

Israel Bars Palestinian Olympian From Leaving Gaza

Israel has barred 30 runners, including an Olympic athlete, from leaving the Gaza Strip to participate in a marathon later this week, highlighting Israel's tight restrictions on travel in and out of the Hamas-ruled territory, Palestinian officials said Tuesday.

In the case of the Olympic runner, Nader Masri, the travel ban was upheld Tuesday by Israel's Supreme Court. Masri, 34, participated in the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.

UN finding on climate change is just a bunch of hot air, new report claims

A U.N.-commissioned panel says climate change is hurting the growth of crops, affecting the quality of water supplies and forcing wildlife to change the way it lives – but what if it’s all just smoke and mirrors?

A new report from the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC), written by an international collection of scientists and published by the conservative Heartland Institute, claims just that, declaring that humanity's impact on climate is not causing substantial harm to the Earth.

“All across the planet, the historical increase in the atmosphere’s CO2 concentration has stimulated vegetative productivity,” reads a portion of the 1,063-page report, called “Climate Change Reconsidered II: Biological Impacts.” “This observed stimulation, or greening of the Earth, has occurred in spite of many real and imagined assaults on Earth’s vegetation, including fires, disease, pest outbreaks, deforestation and climatic change.”

Ukraine PM urges Russia to hand over Yanukovych

Ukraine's prime minister on Thursday blamed ousted President Viktor Yanukovych for the deaths of dozens of anti-government protesters shot by police snipers and urged Russia to hand him over to face charges.

Arseniy Yatseniuk made his comments to Reuters after Ukraine's security service (SBU) blamed the killing of more than 100 protesters in mid-February on the Berkut riot police but said Yanukovych had been involved in planning the operation.

The SBU also said representatives of Russia's FSB security force had been at the SBU headquarters in Kiev - under the previous government - during three months of protests, and that Russia had flown explosives into Ukraine as they worsened.

Don't believe the black box ping story

Early on in all of this, the msm was talking about how remote the Indian Ocean was, and how long it would take to get anything out there to look for the black boxes from flight 370. Most media said it would take two weeks. THAT is a lie.

The actual time to get proper search equipment into the area is 4 hours or less. THAT is how long it would take an F-16 to take off from Diego Garcia and fly ANYWHERE in the region to scan it at mach 2. And in reality, with all the NSA satellites up there, satellites so sensitive that they can detect the beeper circuit in a digital watch from outer space, the real time is ZERO. And if this entire charade was real, that is exactly what would have happened. But since it's all a dog and pony show of fraud, two weeks was the number given because then they could look for a little while and say OH, we will never find it now, the batteries are dead.

Edward Snowden: US government spied on human rights workers - Guardian

The US has spied on the staff of prominent human rights organisations, Edward Snowden has told the Council of Europe in Strasbourg, Europe's top human rights body.

Giving evidence via a videolink from Moscow, Snowden said the National Security Agency – for which he worked as a contractor – had deliberately snooped on bodies like Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch.

He told council members: "The NSA has specifically targeted either leaders or staff members in a number of civil and non-governmental organisations … including domestically within the borders of the United States." Snowden did not reveal which groups the NSA had bugged

NATO Members Conduct False Flag Terror In Attempt to Whip Up War

Indeed, it’s long been known that sarin was coming through Turkey.

Turkey is a member of NATO. So we’re really talking about a NATO member launching a false flag attack against a non-NATO member, and then blaming it on the victim.

This Map Shows The Deadly Aftermath Of War Right Here At Home

Army Spc. Ivan Lopez, the veteran who fatally shot three people before taking his own life Wednesday at Fort Hood, Texas, is among a growing number of recent veterans who have committed violent crimes after returning from war.

In 2008, The New York Times compiled a list of 121 cases in which veterans were charged with a killing after returning home, and Current TV, GOOD and collaborated to update the research in 2010. The Huffington Post collected data from these sources and more recent news articles to create the infographic below, which shows that at least 194 veterans have been charged with killings after returning from Iraq or Afghanistan. It also shows that there has been a concentration of such incidents around military bases. Our research may not be a complete tally, but these were the cases we could confirm.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It frustrates me greatly that the one question these writers refuse to ask is, how many of these Vets committing violence were on SSRIS?!?THAT is the research which needs to be going on, not pinning incidents to a damned digital map!!

There is a known linkage between taking these drugs and violence; but because they are so profitable for the large pharmaceutical houses which make them, that aspect of their chemical effect on the human brain is simply swept under the proverbial rug.

Noah’s Ark: Moral Lesson, or Barbaric Myth?

But not everybody buys the argument that the Noah story represents justice, grace, and redemption. In a recent episode of Real Time, comedian Bill Maher argues, “the thing that’s really disturbing about Noah isn’t the silly—it’s that it’s immoral. It’s about a psychotic mass-murderer who gets away with it, and his name is God”. After explaining how God became enraged at humanity—even though he himself made humans flawed—Maher asks, “what kind of tyrant punishes everyone just to get back at the few he’s mad at?” He ends by suggesting that, if America is losing its values, maybe it is because American Christians “worship a guy who drowns babies”. For Maher, such a deity is neither just nor gracious.

Instead, the peasants/serfs/workers are nearly always driven to a state of desperation (generally near-starvation) before they finally pull out their pitchforks and guillotines, and take back their own government.

The Parr property was surrounded by natural gas frackers in 2009.

Dubai to global bankers: 'Expect another boom'

Some of Dubai’s top officials told international bankers on Monday that it was gearing up for another boom and did not regret the pro-growth policies it used during the first boom. It appeared to win the endorsement of many of the bankers.

Over a dozen top Dubai officials and executives met about 100 representatives of financial powerhouses including Deutsche Bank, Nomura Holdings and Fidelity Investments for the emirate’s first big investor roadshow since the crisis.

“If Dubai had to do the same again, most likely we would follow the same approach,” Mohammad Al Shaibani, chief executive of Investment Corp of Dubai, told the audience at Deutsche Bank’s London offices.

He argued that heavy investment in Dubai between 2006 and 2008 had succeeded in setting the emirate up as a major centre for finance and trade.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Dubai wants investment, but it is unclear how they plan to repay that investment.

Europe’s top court kills invasive phone and email data collection law

Europe’s top court on Tuesday struck down an EU law forcing telecoms operators to store private phone and email data for up to two years, judging it too invasive, despite its usefulness in combating terrorism.

By allowing EU governments to access the data, “the directive interferes in a particularly serious manner with the fundamental rights to respect for private life and to the protection of personal data,” the European Court of Justice (ECJ) said.

Advocate General Pedro Cruiz Villalon declared the legislation illegal and told the European Union’s 28 member states to take the necessary steps to withdraw it.

NATO warns Russia against ‘historic mistake’ in Ukraine

The United States accused Russia on Tuesday of sending its agents to stoke a flaring secession crisis in eastern Ukraine that Moscow itself conceded could spill over into civil war.

The blunt US charge came as Ukraine's embattled leaders waged an uphill battle to keep their culturally splintered nation of 46 million together after the February ouster of a pro-Kremlin president and subsequent loss of Crimea to Russia.

An eery echo of the Black Sea peninsula's separation sounded on Sunday when militants -- many of them masked -- stormed a series of strategic buildings across a swathe of heavily Russified eastern regions and demanded that Moscow send its troops for support.

Ukraine mounted a counter-offensive on Tuesday by vowing to treat the separatists as "terrorists" and making 70 arrests in a nighttime security sweep aimed at proving the Kremlin's involvement in the secessionist movement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The phrase at the top of this article gives me the shivers, because it was precisely the same phrase Netanyahu used to characterize the interim agreement reached by the P5 + 1 last Fall over Iran's nuclear program.

IT is still not clear if, by the time the US invokes sanctions over a Russian barter deal with Iran for oil, whether it will cause the negotiations to break down completely, but if they do collapse, you can nearly bet on Israel's attacking Iran very shortly after that.

And that statement by NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen "...reaffirmed on a visit to Paris that Moscow -- its forces now massed along Ukraine's eastern frontier -- would be making an "historic mistake" if it were to intervene in Ukraine any further."

Sir, forgive me, but WHERE ARE THESE RUSSIA FORCES ALLEGEDLY MASSING ALONG UKRAINE'S EASTERN FRONTIER?!? Because apparently, they are no where to be seen by normal, thinking, analytical people, but by people who are, (and insanely so), looking to start a war with Russia.

Where is your proof, Secretary Rasmussen?!?

Because, just in case you did NOT get the memo (which I believe may well be the case), no thinking, sane American I know wants to go to war with Russia, because they understand that at this point in the US military's history, the US military doesn't have the troop strength, the money, or the manufacturing to obtain a favorable outcome in a conventional war against Russia; and that is what makes the military option here so scarily dangerous.

The "historic mistake" was the US thinking it could go on covertly overthrowing foreign governments without the world realizing what they were doing.

BEX ALERT - Russian ‘plans for war on Sweden’ cause concern

“The most serious threat we see right now is war preparations,” Säpo chief counter-intelligence analyst Wilhelm Unge said at a press conference on Monday.
While stressing that such preparations did not necessarily mean anything dramatic, he said: “It’s no secret that Russia is engaged in this. It’s a little bit worrying.”
Unge said Russia’s intensified interest in Sweden was evidenced by simulated flight attacks on Swedish targets as well as attempts to recruit spies, increased signals intelligence, and the purchase of a significant number of maps.
“If you weren’t carrying out war preparations against Sweden, you probably wouldn’t have any military intelligence here. The intelligence service is part of the Russian general staff and just the fact that they are here indicates some kind of intent,” he said.
The simulated flight attacks were a particular point of concern for Säpo.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, who is this guy, and where the heck is his proof that such things are happening?!?

I cannot find a bit of biographical info on him in English on line.

This feels to me like just more warmongering.

I can no longer accept the accusation of any official of any government who does not deliver proof of what they are saying, and I see no proof here whatsoever.

Boston Transit Police Conducts Warrantless Searches on All Bus, Subway Riders

In accordance with the Department of Homeland Security, the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority is now requiring that all Boston bus and subway riders submit to a warrantless search prior to boarding.

The MBTA transit police announced that everyone will be stopped and searched at “Transit Watch” checkpoints and that anyone declining a search will be ordered to leave the station, even though the area is public property.

“All persons choosing to use the MBTA transit system will be subject to security inspections of their handbags, briefcases and/or other carry-on items,” a Transit Watch pamphlet reads. “Any person refusing to allow a security inspection will be either denied entry or requested to leave MBTA property.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Boston is a city I would love to visit, at some point, for both its fine music and its historical significance.

However, given the current state of the City, and the fact that MBTA has decided the 4th Amendment to the Constitution of the United States no longer applies in their city, I will not visit until that situation changes.

The Fed Takes Our Money, Gives It to Banks Who Loan It Back to Us at 16%

So the Fed is robbing the purchasing power of our money as a matter of policy. In simple terms, the Fed is stealing purchasing power and delivering the stolen wealth to the financiers and banks, who borrow money from the Fed for near-zero rates of interest.

And what do the banks do with the money the Fed stole from us? They loan it back to us at 16% (or more). Those of us who haven't just emerged from bankruptcy get offers from banks on a weekly basis: for transfers of credit card debt, new credit cards, cash advances, auto loans, home equity lines of credit, you name it.

A recent offer from a Too Big to Fail bank offered a teaser rate of 0% for a few months, after which the credit card's interest rate reverted to 16%.

Friedman the Fox

At face value, what Thomas Friedman states in his Op-Ed column, New York Times Sunday Review, April 5, 2014, sounds like a clear statement of facts, but only at face value.

Thomas Friedman is correct in his appraisal of Sheldon Adelson’s blind and passionate “zealously pro-Israel” mindset, which he believes will ultimately work against the long-term preservation of Israel as a Jewish state.

But just like Sheldon Adelson, Thomas Friedman wants a racist, ethnocentric Jewish state when the only solution is a civilized democratic state where Jews, Moslems, and Christians of all denominations live together as one nation.

Obviously that is rhetorical. However, it is worth mentioning, because in the latest such revelation, a retiring SEC trail attorney veteran, James Kidney, who had been with the agency since 1986 and retired this month, just crucified his now former employer for doing precisely all those thing that outside critics - notably Zero Hedge - have accused the most co-opted, clueless, corrupt and criminal regulators of doing.

It was a spoof video showing a family working with the Sodastream machine dubbed over with sounds of guns being loaded and cocked, making the point that Sodastream is part of the problem when it comes to Israel and Palestine. I am glad that the protests and BDS are having an impact. It seems like a general boycott is the only peaceful tool We The People have left to bring about change ... which is why it will probably be made illegal soon.

Russia, US Complete Warheads-for-Fuel Program

The United States has completed payments under a historic agreement providing for the import of Russian highly-enriched uranium for electricity production, Russia’s state-owned uranium producer and trader Techsnabexport said Monday.

“We received the final payment from the United States Enrichment Corporation in March,” the company said, adding that its obligations under a contract for low-enriched uranium ended late last year.

The last shipment of Russian uranium from nuclear warheads converted to reactor fuel arrived in Baltimore by sea in early December, ending a program that has provided 10 percent of all US electricity over the past 15 years.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One of the central debates regarding the CIA's use of torture was whether torture led to the killing of Osama bin Laden in Abbotabad on May 2, 2011. And, of course, it did not, for several reasons. First, it was the Pakistanis who first surrounded the house and claimed to have killed the occupant. The US merely swooped in to take the credit. Second, whoever was killed in that house was not the real Osama bin Laden, who actually died of natural causes only a few months after 9-11. The US forces dumped the body at sea and the White House flooded the internet with photos supposedly showing the killing of bin Laden, all of which turned out to be crude fakes, which are shown here.

So, in point of fact, the CIA's use of torture did not lead to the killing of Osama bin Laden.

FLASHBACK - US Military Recruits Children

But behind the fun and games is an attempt, in the words of a military booklet on "America's Army," "to build a game for Army strategic communication in support of recruiting." The Army spent $6 million to develop the game at the Modeling, Virtual Environments and Simulation Institute (MOVES) before handing it over to private companies for adaptation to the console formats in 2004. As the name implies, the MOVES Institute is the military center for creating virtual training environments and simulators. A MOVES Institute booklet proclaims a later version of the game, "America's Army: Special Forces," was developed specifically to increase the number of Army Special Forces recruits.

The CIA claims that the Senate report is wrong, and pushes its message out through news interviews, pro-torture propaganda tv shows such as 24, pro-torture movies like Zero Dark Thirty and video games. But former CIA director Leon Panetta said that torture did not help get Bin Laden.

Russia’s Petro-Ruble Challenges US Dollar Hegemony. China Seeks Development of Eurasian Trade

Russia has just dropped another bombshell, announcing not only the de-coupling of its trade from the dollar, but also that its hydrocarbon trade will in the future be carried out in rubles and local currencies of its trading partners – no longer in dollars – see Voice of Russia

Russia’s trade in hydrocarbons amounts to about a trillion dollars per year. Other countries, especially the BRICS and BRCIS-associates (BRICSA) may soon follow suit and join forces with Russia, abandoning the ‘petro-dollar’ as trading unit for oil and gas. This could amount to tens of trillions in loss for demand of petro-dollars per year (US GDP about 17 trillion dollars – December 2013) – leaving an important dent in the US economy would be an understatement.

Indoctrinating a New Generation

Most people who follow such things are convinced that the 1999 US/NATO bombing of the Serbian province of Kosovo took place only after the Serbian-forced deportation of ethnic Albanians from Kosovo was well underway; which is to say that the bombing was launched to stop this “ethnic cleansing”. In actuality, the systematic deportations of large numbers of people did not begin until a few days after the bombing began, and was clearly a reaction to it, born of Serbia’s extreme anger and powerlessness over the bombing. This is easily verified by looking at a daily newspaper for the few days before the bombing began the night of March 23/24, 1999, and the few days following. Or simply look at the New York Times of March 26, page 1, which reads:

… with the NATO bombing already begun, a deepening sense of fear took hold in Pristina [the main city of Kosovo] that the Serbs would now vent their rage against ethnic Albanian civilians in retaliation. [emphasis added]

Deadly Ebola virus spreads

Defying efforts at containment, the Ebola outbreak that began in Guinea and has caused 90 dead in Guinea and Liberia has now spread further across West Africa into Mali in what Doctors without Borders is calling an “unprecedented” outbreak.

The U.N.’s World Health Organization, or WHO, has identified the active virus as the Zaire strain of Ebola. The virus has a death rate approaching 90 percent, suggesting that unless contained, the outbreak in West Africa could become one of deadliest epidemics of Ebola, for which there is no known cure.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are confirmed cases in Mali, Liberia, and Sierra Leone. There is one rumored case in Canada, while the Minneapolis patient is reported to be suffering from Lassa Fever rather than ebola. The problem is the long period of time between when a patient becomes infected and infectious and the first manifestation of symptoms alerting the patient they are ill. This time period averages 16 days but can be as long as three weeks, during which time the patient goes about his business, and worse, travels across borders. This is why containment is such a problem as it is impossible to accurately forecast how far the infection has spread. In this age of rail and air travel, infected but not symptomatic patients could already be all across Africa and into other continents.

What should concern everyone is that we know we live under a government that does NOT want to report bad news. Remember the Gulf Oil Disaster, and Obama's swim in water that was really really close to the Gulf (but not actually in it) to prove Gulf seafood was safe to eat? And three years after the Fukushima disaster, only now are they admitting the reactor in unit 3 did in fact explode, and still insist Pacific seafood is safe to eat, to protect the seafood corporations.

Do you trust this government to tell you the truth if Ebola is already here in the US? Hardly. The people in DC want you to stay at your jobs, go about your business, pay your taxes, join the Army, spend your money at the stores, and so forth. You are of no use to them if you stay at home out of fear of infection.

Remember Saddam's nuclear weapons?

Remember Assad's Sarin?

Remember human-caused global warming?

Do you trust this government to tell you the truth if Ebola is already here in the US?

No legal means exist to challenge mass surveillance - Snowden

No legal means exist to challenge mass surveillance, said NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, testifying to the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe.

A former NSA contractor, Snowden was speaking to the PACE session in Strasbourg via a video link-up from Moscow.

Wanted in the US on treason charges, he sparked a huge international scandal last year he leaked to the media classified evidence of American government spying programs.

“I would like to clarify that I have no intention of harming the US government or straining bilateral ties between any nations. My motivation is to improve the government, not to bring it down,” Snowden said.

Snowden told the European parliamentarians that any kind of web traffic can be analyzed and searched with little effort.

Johnston: How to Cheat on Your Taxes

here's never been a better time to cheat on your taxes. Or a better way.

As millions of Americans rush to file their tax returns on time, trying to be ever-so-careful in hopes of avoiding an audit or, far worse, prosecution, they will find it instructive, and infuriating, to learn about Jerry Curnutt.

Curnutt can show people how to cheat on their taxes and not get caught. His trick won't work if you are a wage earner, but those rich enough to invest in real estate partnerships have escaped paying billions of dollars in the past decade by using this technique.

Now Curnutt's mission in life, at age 76, is to get states and the IRS to go after these cheats. ...

Al Sharpton 'was secret FBI mob informant'

A lengthy investigation by The Smoking Gun has uncovered remarkable details about Sharpton’s past work as an informant for a joint organized crime task force comprised of FBI agents and NYPD detectives, as well as his dealings with an assortment of wiseguys.

Beginning in the mid-1980s and spanning several years, Sharpton’s cooperation was fraught with danger since the FBI’s principal targets were leaders of the Genovese crime family, the country’s largest and most feared Mafia outfit. In addition to aiding the FBI/NYPD task force, which was known as the “Genovese squad,” Sharpton’s cooperation extended to several other investigative agencies.

Why vaccines spread disease; an in-depth analysis of flawed vaccination science

Infectious diseases that the system insists have been mostly eradicated due to the advent of vaccines are starting to reemerge, with much of the blame for this being levied on the unvaccinated, who are automatically assumed to be the culprits. But a deeper look into the history of vaccines, how they work and what level of long-term protection they truly provide reveals that these golden calves of modern medicine are actually the vehicles through which infectious disease is being spread, with vaccinated individuals as the primary disease carriers.

National City Bank chairman Walter Wriston was a steadfast warrior in related battles, as he fought with Chase chairman David Rockefeller for supremacy over the US banker community and for dominance over global finance.

Rockefeller’s sights were set on a grander prize, one with worldwide implications: ending the financial cold war. He made his mark in that regard by opening the first US bank in Moscow since the 1920s, and the first in Beijing since the 1949 revolution.

In the following interview Daniel shares a wealth of knowledge and takes a practical approach for how to thrive personally and financially during an economic collapse.

This is a must-watch guide from an extremely well informed source and delves into a wide range of scenarios such as what happens with our currency and our systems of commerce within two weeks of a collapse, as well as the months that follow.

As highlighted in the video, preparing for a worst-case scenario isn’t just about putting food in your pantry, but involves a dynamic strategy depending on your specific circumstances, capabilities and needs.

“If I would have to do it all over again, I would,” he insisted. “The results speak for themselves.”

A report that has been completed by the Senate Intelligence Committee, however, has found that the CIA misled the government and misstated the effectiveness of the so-called enhanced interrogation program. The report concluded that the CIA lied when it said it had gotten “otherwise unobtainable intelligence that helped disrupt terrorist plots and save thousands of lives.”

If you’re unfamiliar with the term “capital controls,” it’s probably because we tend to avoid them in the United States in favor of a free market economy.

Capital controls are simply laws that regulate and restrict what you are allowed to do with your money by regulating the flow of cash in and out of a national economy. The laws define such things as where you can invest your cash and how you can allocate your assets.

Israeli restrictions over Palestinian movement violate Christian religious freedom during Easter

A group of Christians from East Jerusalem on Sunday said that Israel’s restrictions on Palestinian mobility resulted in violations of religious freedoms. The statement, signed “Palestinian Christian Organizations in Occupied East Jerusalem,” complained that Christians are often denied access to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre during the Easter holidays. Each Easter, checkpoints are erected “at the Gates and in the alley, thus preventing the worshipers from free access to the Via Dolorosa, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, and the vicinity of the Christian Quarter.” Israel’s restrictions on Palestinian Christians are a part of larger strategy of Judaization in Jerusalem, the statement said. “The restrictive measures constitute grave violation on the freedom of worship, and amount to discrimination against Christians because the occupation authorities want to negate Christian presence and create the impression of a Jewish-only city.”

Syria false flag and sarin deception

Hersh's new article, entitled "The Red Line and the Rat Line," builds on his earlier article "Whose Sarin?" In the two articles, Hersh provides evidence that top US officials knew that the al-Ghouta chemical weapons attack was a false flag just days after it happened – and that President Obama canceled his plan to bomb Syria because British Intelligence informed him that "the gas used didn’t match the batches known to exist in the Syrian army’s chemical weapons arsenal."

Instead, Hersh shows, the attack was conducted by the al-Qaeda linked al-Nusra Front with help from elements of Turkish and Saudi intelligence. And Obama knew it. He decided that it wasn't worth bombing Syria, in case the whole thing ended in disaster and the false flag got publicly exposed.

One would think that in “democratic America” potential political candidates would go directly to the people, to their constituents to seek their input and to sound off their ideas and chances for winning elections, not go to Las Vegas and kneel before someone like Sheldon Adelson, the King of American politics.

Criminalizing Criticism of Israel in Canada

It's evident that the pro-Israel lobby has been active in mobilizing politicians in the "friendly capitals" of Washington, Ottawa, and Canberra for many years. This essay will argue that revisions to the Canadian Criminal Code proposed by the Harper government contain wording that is designed to enable lawfare prosecutions of human rights activists in precisely the manner desired by Netanyahu and his associates.

American Mercenaries Are On The ground In Ukraine: We Are One Step Nearer To War

Whilst still maintaining that it has no plans to invade Ukraine Russia has trotted out the same line it used just before it marched into Crimea:

'We reserve the right to defend ethnic Russians in the country' Kiev was also warned not to use force against pro-Russian demonstrators.

“We are particularly concerned that the operation involves some 150 American mercenaries from a private company Greystone Ltd., dressed in the uniform of the [Ukrainian] special task police unit Sokol,”the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.“Organizers and participants of such incitement are assuming a huge responsibility for threatening upon the rights, freedoms and lives of Ukrainian citizens as well as the stability of Ukraine.”

Ukraine's unelected President accuses Kremlin of creating uprising in east to justify new invasion

Ukraine’s President on Monday accused Moscow of trying to tear his country apart after separatist protesters stormed buildings and declared an independent republic in an eastern city not far from the border where tens of thousands of Russian troops are massing.

Lets not forget that Turchynov came to power as a result of a violent and bloody foreign-sponsored coup that overthrew a democratically elected government. Sure, the government was corrupt, but so are the political classes in most countries. Corruption and politics go together. Turchynov was elected by NOBODY and as such has the right to speak for himself only.

Holder: DOJ Gun Control Efforts May Include “Gun Tracking Bracelets”

In a recent discussion on gun violence prevention programs, Attorney General Eric Holder told the House appropriations committee that the Department of Justice is considering smart gun tracking technologies, specifically:

" that we can make sure people have the ability to enjoy their Second Amendment rights while at the same time, decreasing the uh misuse of, um, of weapons that lead to, uh, the kinds of things we see on a daily basis you know where people, kids especially, um are struck down..."

Apparently these are technologies Holder says he learned about in a meeting with "technology people" that he and Joe Biden had last year when they were trying to pass their "common sense" gun reforms.

World War III Is Imminent

A very clear picture is emerging over the crisis in Ukraine. Each side has taken on definitive moves in order to bring its military forces into the coming conflict. In short, each side is mobilizing for war. The world may have as little as 30 to 60 days of relative peace left before all hell breaks loose. The world is familiar on how the Russian military has postured its forces to take over Ukraine and begin the process of a Putin economic war against the West once Ukraine is secured. The US and NATO are responding in kind and by this summer, NATO will be ready to challenge the Russians.

The master pretense of US economic life — the delusion that wise persons are actually in control of anything

Forward Guidance

Guess what? There is none. Rather, the Federal Reserve practice of Delphically divulging its intentions ought to be understood as the master pretense of US economic life — the delusion that wise persons are actually in control of anything. The result of this guidance continues to be the mis-pricing of everything, especially the cost of money as represented in the operations of debt, and hence the value of everything denominated in money. The interventions of our central bank have really been aimed at one objective: to compensate for the contraction of real wealth in an economy that replaced purposeful activity with Kardashian studies and tattoo art. Purposeful economic activity provides surpluses that allow for the repayment of debt. Kardashian study and tattoo art lead to entropic entrapment, aka, a death spiral of culture and economy. That’s where we are at. The debt is now eating us alive, and the central bank trick of piling on additional debt to mask the failure of repaying old debt is losing its palliative punch.

Since Russian troops first entered the Crimean peninsula in early March, a series of media polling outlets have asked Americans how they want the U.S. to respond to the ongoing situation. Although two-thirds of Americans have reported following the situation at least “somewhat closely,” most Americans actually know very little about events on the ground — or even where the ground is.

Ebola cases suspected in US and Canada, airports in Guinea begin health checkpoints

As the Ebola outbreak in West Africa continues to spread, airport health checkpoints have been set up in Guinea, to help prevent the virus from spreading. There have already been two cases that were suspected to have left the country.

One Canadian man traveling from the area became infected and brought the virus home to Canada. When he was sick at a Canadian hospital, health officials insisted that there was nothing to be afraid of, and that his virus was not actually Ebola, but only an “Ebola-like” virus. However, the fact that this person was recently in an Ebola outbreak area is leaving many to wonder if this is a true Ebola case that is being downplayed by health officials.

What In The World Is Happening To The Nasdaq?

All of a sudden, the Nasdaq is absolutely tanking. On Monday, it fell more than 1 percent after dropping 3.6 percent on Thursday and Friday combined. At this point, the Nasdaq is off to the worst start to a year that we have seen since 2008, and we all remember what happened back then. So why is this happening? In recent years, the Nasdaq has been ground zero for "dotcom bubble 2.0". The hottest stocks in the entire world are on the Nasdaq - we are talking about stocks like Yahoo, Netflix, Apple, Tesla, Google and Facebook. Those stocks have gone to absolutely incredible heights, but now they are starting to fall. Some are blaming insider selling, and without a doubt the "smart money" is starting to flee the stock market. Just check out this chart. Others are blaming low expectations for first-quarter earnings or the tapering of quantitative easing by the Federal Reserve. But whatever is causing this decline, it is starting to get alarming.

China heading off cold war through economic diplomacy

During his visit to Duisburg, Chinese President Xi Jinping made a master stroke of economic diplomacy that runs directly counter to the Washington neo-conservative faction’s effort to bring a new confrontation between NATO and Russia.

Using the role of Duisburg as the world’s largest inland harbor, an historic transportation hub of Europe and of Germany’s Ruhr steel industry center, he proposed that Germany and China cooperate on building a new “economic Silk Road” linking China and Europe. The implications for economic growth across Eurasia are staggering.

Fusion Centers: A Dangerous Part of the Surveillance State

Nadia Kayyali

While NSA surveillance has been front and center in the news recently, fusion centers are a part of the surveillance state that deserve close scrutiny.

Fusion centers are a local arm of the so-called “intelligence community,” the 17 intelligence agencies coordinated by the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC). The government documentation around fusion centers is entirely focused on breaking down barriers between the various government agencies that collect and maintain criminal intelligence information.

Barriers between local law enforcement and the NSA are already weak. We know that the Drug Enforcement Agency gets intelligence tips from the NSA which are used in criminal investigations and prosecutions. To make matters worse, the source of these tips is camouflaged using “parallel construction,” meaning that a different source for the intelligence is created to mask its classified source...

10 Scientific Studies Proving GMOs Can Be Harmful To Human Health

by Arjun Walia

Over the past few years, a number of countries have completely banned GMOs and the pesticides that go along with them, and they are doing so for a reason.

The latest country to consider a complete ban is Russia after top government scientists recommended at least a 10-year ban.

The truth is, we don’t know enough about GMOs to deem them safe for human consumption. Believe it or not the very first commercial sale of them was only twenty years ago. There is no possible way that our health authorities can test all possible combinations on a large enough population, over a long enough period of time to be able to say with absolute certainty that they are harmless.

There are a multitude of credible scientific studies that clearly demonstrate why GMOs should not be consumed, and more are emerging every year. There are also a number of scientists all around the world who oppose them...

FLASHBACK - The Death of Vincent Foster

This is the story that nobody dares touch.

Despite having reported the discovery of Dr. Haut's signed report confirming the existence of a second wound to Vincent Foster's neck, radio host Rush Limbaugh to this very day refers to Vincent Foster's death as a suicide.

Even Matt Drudge, when presented with the FBI records proving that the FBI fraudulently manufactured Lisa Foster's recognition of the gun found at Fort Marcy Park, refused to get involved, opting instead for a story accusing Sidney Blumenthal of domestic violence (for which Drudge was then sued).

CNN said Bush will attempt to use anger over deportations to swing Latinos into the Republican camp. Bush’s remark characterizing Obama is the “deporter-in-chief” is intended to turn large Latino populations in California, Texas and Florida against the Democrats.

7th Grader Suspended and Subjected to Psychological Evaluation for…Twirling a Pencil

A New Jersey 7th grader was subjected to a five-hour physical and psychological examination for twirling a pencil in class.

Here’s how it went down:

Ethan Chaplin was twirling a pencil with a pen cap on it when a fellow student yelled, “He’s making gun motions – send him to juvie!”

The student who made the accusation had bullied Ethan earlier in the day and was trying to get him in trouble, Ethan says. He said the school administrators wouldn’t hear his side of the story.

Ethan was suspended and told he could not return to school until a complete physical and psychological examination was conducted.
