Consumers wasted at least $300 million paying for AT&T’s ‘unlimited’ data

By now, you've probably heard that the Federal Trade Commission is suing AT&T for how it treats its unlimited data customers. Despite paying for an unlimited plan, these subscribers had their mobile Internet slowed to dial-up speeds, or "throttled," once AT&T decided they had surfed the Web too much. If that sounds nonsensical to you, you're not alone: Tens of thousands of consumers have complained about the practice, saying "unlimited" should mean just that — without limits.

America Pays More For Internet, Gets Slower Speeds, Than Other Countries: "But many cities are banned from creating their own Internet service. At least 19 states have passed laws restricting publicly owned broadband networks..."

Americans pay far more and get far less when it comes to the Internet than many other people around the world. But a few small towns might be changing that.
Internet users in Seoul continue to get the speediest connections at the lowest prices anywhere in the world, with speeds of one gigabit per second costing just $30 a month, according to annual report released Thursday the New America Foundation’s Open Technology Institute. By contrast, the best speeds that consumers in Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., or New York can get are half as fast and cost $300 a month.

7/7 London bombings and Woolwich beheading have some things in common

You see, 7/7 has an awful lot in common with the Woolwich drama and not just because they were both government orchestrated false flag operations either.

For instance, Detective Inspector Peter Sparks of the wholly corrupt Metropolitan Police Force was allowed to have his hearsay evidence admitted as fact at the 7/7 public hearings. See HERE

And of course, Sparks was also the family liaison officer to Rebbeca Rigby – a woman whom I firmly believe posed in photos as Samantha Lewthwaite, the most improbable “most wanted” female terrorist in the world today and widow of alleged 7/7 bomber Germaine Lindsey, whom I also believe played Michael Adebowale in the Woolwich hoax.

Facebook conducts secret voting tests on users

For the past six years, on every national Election Day, the social-networking behemoth has pushed out a tool—a high-profile button that proclaims “I’m Voting” or “I’m a Voter”—designed to encourage Facebook users to vote. Now, Facebook says it has finished fine-tuning the tool, and if all goes according to plan, on Tuesday many of its more than 150 million American users will feel a gentle but effective nudge to vote, courtesy of Mark Zuckerberg & Co. If past research is any guide, up to a few million more people will head to the polls partly because their Facebook friends encouraged them.

Ukrainians and Novorussians sit down and talk

Something fantastically interesting has happened in Novorussia: two senior Novorussian commanders, Igor Bezler and Alexei Mozgovoi have attempted to communicate with those Ukrainians who are on the other side.

Clearly, both Bezler and Mozgovoi are first and foremost anti-Nazis and both of them see that there is not “Novorussian solution”. Mozgovoi explicitly stated that he thinks that both sides could live together if the Ukrainians got rid of their Nazis and oligarchs.

I see that there is hope because the bottom line is this: both sides have much more in common than what separates them!

Absent from the War against the Islamic State: Israel’s Status as an American Ally and the Example It Provides for U.S. Foreign Policy

The fact of the matter is that the Islamic State actually benefits Israel by causing problems for those very states that do actively oppose Israel and support the Palestinians, such as Syria. What the Islamic State is causing in the Middle East is perfectly attuned with the view of the Israeli Right—as best articulated by Oded Yinon in 1982—which sought to have Israel’s Middle Eastern enemies fragmented and fighting among themselves in order to weaken the external threat to Israel. Currently, these divisions are not only plaguing Syria and Iraq, but also Turkey, where ethnic Kurds are rioting because of the government’s unwillingness to help their brethren in Syria, and Lebanon, where the Shiite group Hezbollah—allied with Iran, Israel’s foremost enemy—is being assailed by the radical jihadist Nusra Front, which has the support of many Lebanese Sunnis.

Google Survey: Majority of US Citizens Think US Gives Too Much to Israel

Today 6 in 10 Americans believe the U.S. gives too much aid to Israel

Surveying Americans about U.S. aid to Israel requires putting it into proper perspective. Given Israel’s position as the leading single U.S. foreign aid recipient (by a wide margin), as in 1989 asking the foreign aid question requires embedding relevant data to obtain a bona fide response. When such data is included, the majority of Americans (60.7 percent) believe U.S. aid to Israel is excessive. The major response, that aid to Israel is “Much too much” is 33.9 percent of Americans. Some 26.8 percent believe it is “too much” while 25.9 percent believe it is “about right.” Only 13.4 percent of Americans believe U.S. aid to Israel is not enough.

Netanyahu wants to test who controls the U.S. Congress, Israel or U.S. Government

Israeli resistance to deals on Palestinian peace and Iran’s nuclear program has strained U.S.-Israeli relations and will test if Congress is more loyal to Prime Minister Netanyahu or President Obama. But the tension underscores a deeper division between the two countries, says ex-CIA analyst Paul R. Pillar.

WEBMASTER ADDITION: Israel is trying to assert its control over the US Congress, and it is a reckless and dangerous exercise in hubris. If the friends of Israel go down to defeat next week (and I am hoping the image at the top of this page will help to accomplish that) Israel's fall from power in DC will be truly underway.

5 Ways Life in America Would Be Better If Everyone Voted

With Election Day approaching on November 4th, Americans are faced with a perennial question: to vote or not to vote? In the last midterm election, in 2010, only 47 percent of the eligible population voted. Voting patterns typically break down along clear demographic lines: Non-voters tend to be low-income, young and people of color, while those who vote tend to older, whiter and richer than the population at large. Over the last three elections, voter turnout has been consistently 30 points higher among the highest income bracket (those earning more than $150,000 a year) than those in the lowest (those earning less than $10,000). Recent research on the top one percent of the wealth distribution – millionaires – suggests that members of this group turn out to vote at the staggering rate of 99 percent.

Authorities seek U.S. links after Colombian child-sex sting

Dozens of U.S. citizens, perhaps as many as 50, could be detained in the coming weeks in the wake of a child-sex trafficking sting that is shining a spotlight on the seedy side of Colombia’s booming tourism industry.

In mid-October, Colombian and U.S. authorities, working with two nonprofit groups, staged three simultaneous raids in the cities of Cartagena, Medellin and Armenia. By the time the busts were over, 55 children, some as young as 11 and 12, had been rescued from sex-traffickers. In addition, at least a dozen people were detained on allegations of trafficking of minors, pimping and pandering.

Those busts, however, are just the leading edge of a larger sweep that aims to jail U.S. citizens who have been traveling to this Andean nation seeking sex with minors.

Police investigating video depicting officers joking about rape

Austin police are trying to determine if a YouTube video posted Thursday evening of what appears to be two officers making a rape joke is authentic.

The video appears to be dashboard camera footage from a patrol car and a conversation between two men who, according to the YouTube post, are Austin police officers.

Towards the end of the video, a whistle can be heard, followed by one of them saying “go ahead and call the cops. They can’t unrape you.”

Austin police did not immediately respond to a request for more information Friday morning.

BEX ALERT - Blame the fall in homeownership on Generation X: Why did the homeownership rate fall so dramatically for those 35 to 44?

We’ve all heard about the broke Millennials living at home with mom and dad unable to move out into a very expensive rental. For years, we’ve been told that somehow this young group of people would represent some pent up demand to buy homes. This demand never materialized. Instead, you have tight inventory in certain markets being fought over by investors and those willing to pay current prices while stretching their budgets. Yet volume remains incredibly pathetic. The homeownership rate has fallen dramatically and some point the blame to the Millennials. But as it turns out, the big drop has come from those 35 to 44. Generation X overall has been a massive drag on the housing market. The young are simply not buying homes like they once did and many are opting into the rental market. So how big of a drag is Generation X on the housing market?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Another puff piece trying to find a scapegoat for the economic woes while avoiding a mention of the root cause of all of the problems, which are those private central banks issuing all of the public currency as a loan at interest, a system which by design produces more debt than money with which to pay that debt. But we dare not talk about that reality! So let's drop the blame on the kiddies!

That wasn't good enough, according to the FTC, which is suing for "substantial monetary relief" -- and a better plan description.

#Droughtshaming: New Tattletale App Allows Californians to Tell on ‘Water Waster’ Neighbors

Amid California’s record drought, towns up and down the state are rolling out smartphone apps that enable people to snap pictures of neighbors and businesses who are violating water restriction rules and “play water cop”:

The apps put more boots on the ground to spot waste and leaks that might go unnoticed, officials say. They say the high-tech citizen reporting programs are intended to encourage water conservation, and not to be used as evidence to fine offenders.

But at least one private company is taking things a step further. Creators of Vizsafe, a neighborhood watch app, have added a feature allowing users to map photos of water wasters — a practice dubbed “drought shaming” on Twitter and Instagram.

We Prep for Ebola Because of Irresponsible People Like Kacie Hickox

That nurse in Maine sure does love the spotlight.

After Kacie Hickox returned from Sierra Leone, where she was treating Ebola patients, she was outraged when she was put in isolation by the state of New Jersey. After railing about her civil rights, she was then transferred to her home in Maine, where she was asked to remain home for the remainder of the 21 day incubation period.

Well, you can't tell Kacie Hickox what to do. No sir. She knows her rights.

Although she tried to portray herself as a saintly caregiver who was being victimized, today she showed herself to be anything but selfless.

She defied the quarantine and went out for a bike ride with her boyfriend, which was the equivalent of giving a great big middle finger salute to those who asked her to remain home.

The report found that the number of billionaires in the world has more than doubled to 1,646 since the financial crisis of 2009, and Oxfam says is evidence that the benefits of a return to economic growth are “not being shared with the vast majority”.

The Wrath of Draghi: First German Bank Hits Savers with Negative Interest Rate

Deutsche Skatbank, a division of VR-Bank Altenburger Land, which was founded in 1859, is not the biggest bank in Germany, but it’s the first bank to confirm what German savers have been dreading for a while: the wrath of Draghi.

Retail and business customers with over €500,000 on deposit as of November 1 will earn a “negative interest rate” of 0.25%. In less euphemistic terms, they have to pay0.25% per annum to the bank for the privilege of handing the bank their hard-earned money or their business cash.

“There will be no direct impact on your savings,” the ECB announced five months ago. “Only banks that deposit money in certain accounts at the ECB have to pay.” But it added ominously, “Commercial banks may of course choose to lower interest rates for savers.”

And that would be good for savers:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To those of you in the US who say, "That CANNOT possibly happen in the US", please think again.

Have no more money in your checking account than is needed to pay your bills. Place all the rest of your money under your personal control. Think about getting small, untraceable amounts of gold and silver to add to your personal portfolio.

Inflation in the US has already catastrophically destroyed whatever you have saved; the suppression of gold and silver value will not continue forever.

Overweight crash test dummies being developed in response to rising obesity levels in the United States

Car safety testing has come a long way since the days of dropping cadavers down unused elevator shafts in the 1930s.

That we enjoy greater peace of mind on the road -- with fatal accidents in the US at historic lows -- is largely due to the evolution of crash test dummies. Vehicle manufacturers must prove their safety with dummies before they can be legally sold in the US and Europe, and these unsung heroes have developed into extraordinarily sophisticated tools for collecting data and assessing risk.

Two Years Later, No Charges After Police Kill Homeless Man in Barrage of 46 Shots

On a quiet Sunday in July 2012 in broad daylight, six police officers in Michigan repeatedly shot an African-American man struggling with homelessness and mental illness. While the killing of Milton Hall prompted local outrage and a federal investigation, the U.S. Department of Justice announced in February that it failed to find “sufficient evidence of willful misconduct” to prosecute the policemen.

Israelis kill Americans with impunity

Like 18-year-old Furkan Dogan, who was murdered aboard the Mavi Marmara, and 23-year-old Rachel Corrie, who was deliberately crushed beneath an Israeli bulldozer, the latest victim – 14-year-old Orwa Hammad – was martyred trying to stop the genocide in Occupied Palestine.

Unlike the 64,937 US soldiers who died useless and pointless deaths in Vietnam, Afghanistan, and Iraq, these three brave young people gave their lives for a just and urgent cause. Wherever human beings care about justice, the young American heroes will be remembered. Yet the US mainstream media, which has been stealthily infiltrated by Zionists to the point that it is now a propaganda instrument of the Israeli government, works overtime to cover up the heinous murder of young Americans by Zionist occupation forces.

Socialist egalitarian system based on the massive redistribution

In a recent diatribe on BBC, Hollywood actor Russell Brand with Jeremy Paxman spoke candidly about his desire to create a "Socialist egalitarian system based on the massive redistribution of wealth and heavy taxation of corporations." In this commentary we question Brand's so called "good intentions" and how qualified he really is to talk about these topics as a multi-millionaire. More importantly, we discuss his connection to the Fabian Socialist magazine the "New Statesman," of which he was co-edi

The Ebola covert op: 30 answers to “who benefits?”

Jon Rappoport

"In any major covert op, there are always multiple objectives and levels of opportunity, and they are not wasted. The interesting thing is, 99.99% of the players who benefit don’t even realize the whole thing is a planned op." (The Magician Awakes, Jon Rappoport)

EU chief scientist a dangerous imbecile, says renown risk expert Nassim Nicholas Taleb

The EU's controversial chief scientist, Anne Glover, has been called a dangerous imbecile by the Distinguished Professor of Risk Engineering at New York University, Nassim Nicholas Taleb. Taleb was responding on Twitter to the fact that Glover argues for abandoning the Precautionary Principle in relation to GM crops.

The reason for the Precautionary Principle is, of course, to make sure that if things go wrong, they don’t go catastrophically wrong – and that, Taleb has pointed out, is precisely the danger with GM crops, as they pose systemic risks to ecologies and human health. Indeed, Taleb, who famously predicted the global economic crash, says that even "calling the GMO approach 'scientific' betrays a very poor – indeed warped – understanding of probabilistic payoffs and risk management."

Judge: Uber ride sharing can roll on, for now

The constroversial ride-sharing company Uber can continue to operate in Southern Nevada, a Las Vegas judge ruled today.

District Judge Douglas Herndon made the ruling from the bench after holding a hearing on the matter.

Uber launched its service Friday but immediately met resistance from the state’s Department of Business and Industry, which oversees the Nevada Taxicab Authority and the Nevada Transportation Authority.

Enforcement officers from both agencies cited drivers for providing an “unlicensed for-hire transportation service” and impounded their vehicles. The San Francisco-based company responded by vowing to back its contracted drivers and providing rental cars for them until vehicles were freed from impoundment. Drivers can be fined up to $10,000 per incident.

US beginning to ‘disengage’ from Israel: Analyst

A combination of factors is pushing the United States to “disengage” from Israel, a regime that will not last a month without US support, says an analyst.

“Times are changing for Israel, they spend a lot of money to manipulate public opinion, all of Hollywood and mass media is Jewish-controlled (and) Zionist-controlled, and people realize the lies that are being told to them on their Nightly News on a daily basis,” he said.

“But the American people can see through this. The American people, particularly at university level, are smart (and) well-educated and they have this implicit sense of fairness,” he added.
“All of this combined” Harris said, “is adding up to what is going to be a perfect storm for Israel where the people of the US are going to reject Israel, and that is the process that we are beginning to see the early stages of.”

Vladimir Putin Is The Leader Of the Moral World — Paul Craig Roberts

snip: In a sane Western society, Putin’s statements would have been reproduced in full and discussions organized with remarks from experts such as Stephen F. Cohen. Choruses of approval would have been heard on television and read in the print media. But, of course, nothing like this is possible in a country whose rulers claim that it is the “exceptional” and “indispensable” country with an extra-legal right to hegemony over the world. As far as Washington and its prostitute media, named “presstitutes” by the trends specialist Gerald Celente, are concerned, no country counts except Washington. “You are with us or against us,” which means “you are our vassals or our enemies.” This means that Washington has declared Russia, China, India, Brazil and other parts of South America, Iran, and South Africa to be enemies.

Iraq divided: The fight against ISIL

As the US strikes ISIL targets in Iraq, we report from Erbil on the consequences of the latest foreign intervention.

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) today controls as much as one-third of Iraq’s territory, including the second largest city, Mosul.

Although the group’s power and influence expanded in Syria, Iraq is where it was born during the nearly nine-year-long US occupation of the country.
Thus far, tens of thousands of people have had to flee their homes as ISIL captures towns and villages.

ISIL-held territory is tightly controlled, off-limits to even journalists and human rights workers.

As the US steps up its air campaign against the group, Fault Lines travels some 900km across Iraq to look at the consequences of the fight against ISIL.

It doesn’t make sense.

Stories that don’t make sense and that are not explained naturally arouse suspicions, such as: Are US soldiers being used to test ebola vaccines and cures, or more darkly are they being used to bring more ebola back to the US?

CIA Mouthpiece Lets Slip On Russian ‘Aggression’

For months now, Western mass media have been in lockstep with the US State Department and the NATO military alliance, promulgating claims of Russian aggression in Ukraine and towards Europe generally. The mantra-like repetition of these claims, with scant substantiation, resembles the Big Lie technique of Third Reich master propagandist Josef Goebbels. Told often and brazenly enough, the claims acquire normalcy as «accepted facts».

Western news media, from the BBC to the New York Times, uncritically peddle NATO and Washington claims that Moscow has «annexed» Crimea and infiltrated troops into eastern Ukraine to destabilize the pro-Western «government» in Kiev. Last month at the NATO summit in Wales, outgoing secretary general Anders Fogh Rasmussen asserted: «So we continue to call on Russia to pull back its troops from Ukrainian borders, [and] to stop the flow of weapons and fighters into Ukraine».
