No matter who wins, today's election outcome can't stop America's head-on course toward self-destruction

Regardless of the outcome of today's U.S. mid-term elections, there are some things that won't change one iota. While most of America has finally come to realize what a disaster Obama's presidency has really been in real-world terms, there are at least five other disasters looming in America's near future. And neither Republicans nor Democrats have any real plan to deal with these issues... especially when it's so much easier to get elected by slandering your opponent rather than proposing practical solutions.

So here's my warning on the five biggest threats still facing America in the years ahead. Don't hold your breath thinking anyone in Washington D.C. is willing to address any of these. After all, they are the ones who created most of these problems in the first place.

Obama, Holder demand transparency from cops in Ferguson

In the midst of the Department of Justice (DOJ) investigation of Missouri's Ferguson Police Department, ordered by the soon-to-be-retired Attorney General Eric Holder, on Sunday some news organizations ran headlines that suggested a new controversy came to light: That the police attempted to restrict air traffic during the days and nights of civil unrest.

"Here in the United States of America, police should not be bullying and arresting reporters who are just doing their jobs.The local authorities [in Ferguson], including police, have a responsibility to be transparent and open." President Barack Obama was quoted as saying during the period of unrest.

The Black Magic Ringwraiths of Present Time.

I heard that; “What goes up must come down.” This is not true and it applies from the most common examples; “come fly with me!” to the most esoteric. We repeat this longstanding homilie because it's one of those things we accept without thinking about it and it's not true. Sure... it's true if you ignore the exceptions, otherwise it is not true. How many things of this sort presently exist in our subconscious mind? Yes... we have a personal subconscious but it is like an inlet to a far greater sea; “somewhere, beyond the sea.” It is in the subconscious where all of our patterning exists; all the presumptions and assumptions we have made and they pretty much dictate how our life goes. You might argue that it is what we have done and said that affects us more but... that is also an expression of the subconscious. When you erase the flawed patterns and replace them with what is true and positive, should you know what that is...

The Game of Life with the Flesh, the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea.

I have to watch myself that I don't devolve into a constant defamation of the masses. I don't mean to but when I observe them at their activities, I am at a loss as to what other lens through which to view them through. Here they are in the middle of the world coming down around their ears. Madness swirls through them, around them... it's crystal clear what the outcome has to be when you are irrefutably going in the wrong direction and are literally hell bent on continuing on that course.

Pony Rides for Illegals, Slashed Benefits for Americans

Illegal immigrant children entering the country without their parents or adults, now called “Unaccompanied Adults,” or UACs by the government, are receiving a tax payer subsidized bounty.

From petting zoos with miniature ponies to a tilapia fish farm operations and guitar lessons, UACs are lavished with perks, according to documents released by Sen. Charles E. Grassley, an Iowa Republican.

Preferred contractors reap handsome profit when they provide these dished out perks, in some cases upward to $329 per child a day.

Meanwhile, for citizens, federal and state government have decided to cutback on food stamps and unemployment benefits.

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!

Antonio Buehler Found Not Guilty After Austin Cop Breaks Blue Code of Silence, Testifying on his Behalf

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.

Airplane crashed into airport building in Wichita, Kansas

A local NBC News affiliate reported shortly after that one person is in critical condition as a result of the incident, and confirmed that the plane in question is a Beechcraft that lost an engine during takeoff, citing the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). According to Kansas’ KAKE News, the plane was trying to return to the airport immediately after departing when the crash occurred.

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.

Unmanned balloon a bust in Frein manhunt

Pennsylvania State Police say an unmanned balloon brought in from Ohio has not been helpful in the search for a suspect in the killing of a state trooper.

Trooper Tom Kelly, a state police spokesman, says the agency returned the Mylar balloon to the Ohio Department of Transportation on Tuesday.

Kelly says dense brush and rugged terrain in the Pocono Mountains search area hampered use of the tethered device, which is akin to a weather balloon.

Officer Darren Wilson Is Missing His Court Dates

Darren Wilson, the police officer accused of shooting Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, this summer, has been extremely elusive. His name was not released by the police department for some time, and the delay allowed him to seemingly wipe every trace of himself from social media and his home.

Wilson is looking to avoid the media and the public—he has not been seen since August 9—but his absence is starting to impact the job he left behind. It's now being reported that a total of six criminal cases have been dismissed, because Wilson, as the arresting officer, isn't showing up to court to testify.

Of Prepubescent Profanity Tarts, Warming up for the Alternate NAMBLA Games.

Obviously we have to address this 'tots with tiaras' profanity advert; not only completely off the wall but also, nothing more than an example of crass materialism, when you look under the hood. And what would a viral PC advert be without skewered statistics? Now we got one in five raped but they kind of covered themselves by tacking on 'abused' or 'assaulted', I forget which. I do know that this includes verbal insults and dirty looks. Here's a little commentary. You get a clue about several things by reading the comments. Here's the website and you get to see the video too. A good terse explanation about the reality of one of the statistics can be found here, as for the other stats, I've made my observation and I wasn't being whimsical.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I agree with the criticism of "Tots in Tiarras" and view it as another symptom of a society that has become very sick, with failed beauty queens as mothers trying to relive their glory days vicariously through their children. As for the children, they should be allowed to remain children for as long as possible because growing up is a one-way street and you don't get to go back. I don;t think anyone has the right to tell a child to be a grown-up until we have created a world worth being grown up in.

Nobel Peace Prize Winners Urge Obama To Release CIA Torture Report

Twelve Nobel Peace Prize winners penned an open letter to President Barack Obama urging his administration to release a U.S. Senate report on the CIA's use of torture.

In the letter, released Sunday night on TheCommunity.com, the laureates asked for "full disclosure to the American people of the extent and use of torture and rendition by American soldiers, operatives, and contractors, as well as the authorization of torture and rendition by American officials." The letter also pushed for a clear plan for the closing of Guantanamo Bay and other international sites where the U.S. has engaged in torture.

The letter was signed by José Ramos-Horta, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, F.W. De Klerk, Leymah Gbowee, Muhammad Yunus, John Hume, Bishop Carlos X. Belo, Betty Williams, Adolfo Perez Esquivel, Jody Williams, Oscar Arias Sanchez and Mohammad ElBaradei.

The laureates spoke out sharply against any use of torture, but said that the U.S.' tactics were particularly troubling.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to those who signed this petition: what you are asking for will only happen when pigs fly.

At the end of the day, the US President Obama is no less a complete tool of the banks and the corporations which put him into office than was his Republican predecessor.

Banks and corporations love war, because war is profitable. And if it takes torture elicit confessions with which to justify wars, US leadership is certainly not morally opposed to torturing.

We have known, since the time of the Catholic Inquisition, that torture simply gets the tortured person to say what the torturer wants them to say in order to get the torture to stop; it rarely produces actionable intelligence, if at all.

Police impose checkpoints, deploy drones at high school football game

Fans were startled by the heavy presence of police officers, drone surveillance, and warrantless checkpoints upon entry at the local high school football game.

The prison-like security at Summerville High School was called “the reality of the world we live in today.” As students and fans filed into the homecoming football game on Friday, October 24th, 2014, they were forced to place their belongings in a bin for police examination, then walk through a metal detector. Stadium-goers were restricted from bringing certain items into the stands.

Fans also were quick to notice the conspicuous presence of police officers mixed among the crowd and perched on the rooftops, surveillance drones whirring overhead, and even SWAT team members ready for action.

The security bonanza was imposed because school district officials had allegedly been tipped off that rival gangs might fight at the game, WCIV reported. No incidents of violence were reported.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have precisely two words for the parents and the students who were "treated" to this behaviour, courtesy of their local police: home schooling.

24 Cops and Armored Military Vehicle Sent To Loot A 75 Year Old’s Retirement Fund

For years, 75-year-old Roger Hoeppner has been at odds with his local government in Marathon County, Wisconsin, over $80,000 dollars worth of fines relating to the use of his property.

Hoeppner has strongly disputed the fines that have been imposed on him, and he has been through multiple lawsuits and appeals with the city, in a fight to use his property the way that he wants to.

Town officials claim that a business which Hoeppner operates on his property is in violation of zoning ordinances.

In 2011, the town confiscated large amounts of personal property from Hoeppner because he refused to pay the fines. Several tractors, pallets and equipment were auctioned off by the government for “pennies on the dollar” according to Hoeppner’s attorney, Ryan Lister.

Ebola quarantine nurse's ties to CDC scrubbed from web; was it a staged op to invoke opposition to quarantines?

Kaci Hickox, the nurse who was quarantined in New Jersey over her high risk status as a possible Ebola carrier, has ties to the CDC which have been deliberately hidden by the mainstream media.

Right now, a war is waging between states like New Jersey, New York and Illinois -- which have all decided to quarantine travelers at high risk of Ebola infections -- and the federal government which is adamantly opposed to border security, medical quarantines and travel bans.

Kaci Hickox emerged in the center of this debate just yesterday when she complained of being "interrogated" and held in violation of her civil rights. Kaci's LinkedIn.com profile, which described her links to the CDC, was scrubbed from the web earlier today, and even Google cache has strangely been cleared of her profile which previously detailed her ties to the CDC.

NEO – Hong Kong’s Umbrellas are ‘Made in USA’

William Engdahl brings us the real deal behind the protests in Hong Kong. Guess who? You are right, just another US color revolution with all the usual suspects participating.

The key stars are the National Endowment for Democracy (aka… Overthrows-R_US, the funder), and the National Democratic Institute, that handles the logistics.

We Cold War children grew up listening to our government tell us that what we are doing now was a bad thing when the Soviets were doing it. But now, when there is no Cold War, the US has picked up the expansionist model of the old Soviet Comintern’s world revolution mantra.

Corruption at the Heart of Mexico's Drug War - True not only in Mexico, but in the United States as well.

A Mexican mayor and his wife masterminded the recent disappearance of 43 student teachers and Mexico's attorney general has issued arrest warrants for them.

The students went missing on 26 September from Iguala in the south-western state of Guerrero after they clashed with police. The incident sent shockwaves across Mexico and undermined President Enrique Peña Nieto’s claims that Mexico is getting safer under his watch.

So far 52 arrests have been made in relation to the matter, including dozens of police actively working with a gang called Guerreros Unidos, or United Warriors. The gang’s leader, Sidronio Casarrubias, was arrested last week.

Mexico: Riots and looting rock Guerrero with students still missing

Protests turned violent in Guerrero Wednesday as demonstrators looted shops and smashed windows, leaving devastation and blood stains. An ambulance and several shops have been damaged. Local police have made several arrests.

The scenes follow teachers setting the town hall of Iguala ablaze in anger. The violence is ostensibly a response to the continued case of the 43 missing students, who went missing over three weeks ago.

The students of the Ayotzinapa Teacher Training College in Guerrero disappeared on September 26 in Iguala, after a confrontation with local police. The original confrontation left six people dead and 25 injured. They have been missing ever since.

How Comic Relief invests millions in arms, tobacco and alcohol: Panorama expose also reveals charity is sitting on £100m and will not say how money is spent

Comic Relief was yesterday accused of misleading donors by investing millions of pounds raised during televised appeals in tobacco, alcohol and the arms industry.

The charity – which claims that ‘every penny’ given by the public helps good causes – pumps cash into the companies even as it backs projects to help victims of smoking-related illnesses, alcohol abuse and war.

According to a BBC Panorama expose, the charity is also sitting on £100million donated by the public and refuses to say how the money is being invested.

Evidence supports officer’s account of shooting in Ferguson

Ferguson, Mo., police officer Darren Wilson and Michael Brown fought for control of the officer’s gun, and Wilson fatally shot the unarmed teenager after he moved toward the officer as they faced off in the street, according to interviews, news accounts and the full report of the St. Louis County autopsy of Brown’s body.

Because Wilson is white and Brown was black, the case has ignited intense debate over how police interact with African American men. But more than a half-dozen unnamed black witnesses have provided testimony to a St. Louis County grand jury that largely supports Wilson’s account of events of Aug. 9, according to several people familiar with the investigation who spoke with The Washington Post.

Europe’s food experts fooled by pranksters into confusing McDonald’s with organic food

Dutch pranksters have fooled food experts and consumers and proved that even foodies can’t tell McDonald’s from real, organic food when offered some on a plate. The comments from misled ‘experts’ are hysterical.

Lifehunters, as the guys call themselves, posted a video of them visiting one of the most popular annual food expos in Europe, in the city of Houten, to serve their “top of the notch recipes” from their “high-end restaurant” that serves “organic alternatives to fastfood.”

“The problem here is that we don’t actually own a restaurant,” one of the pranksters, Sacha, says on the video.

So they paid a visit to their “favorite restaurant” McDonald’s.

Armed with a serving tray of cut up McDonald’s sandwiches made into canapé treats they started their hunt for gullible fans of organic food to ask what experts think about their “specialties.”

Ferguson shooting autopsy report released as panicking Dems race-bait

As the Georgia Democrats attempt to use the shooting death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, to get angry black voters to the polls in what many are calling a "disgusting example of race-baiting for political gain," the release of the 18-year old Brown's autopsy appears to support Police Officer Darren Wilson's claims: that a physical scuffle occurred inside Wilson's car as he struggled with the 6'8" tall, 300-pounder for Wilson's service weapon.

Michael Brown's official autopsy reveals that the teenager received a gunshot to his hand at close range during his altercation with the Ferguson police officer who ended up killing him, experts said in the autopsy report. The medical examiner's autopsy and toxicology reports also indicates that Brown had, as was suspected, ingested marijuana.

The Narcotic Humming of the Planetary Sleep Machine

If you look carefully at the news in different parts of the west, you might notice a trend that has been developing over time. Here’s an example of what I mean; the first person appointed to head up their in house proctology team. I suggest you tap into the picture of the woman being referenced in the article, with your inner phrenologist. Does she not look exactly like the kind of person who would be standing around a sacrificial altar in a medieval cloak with an upside down crucifix tattooed on her breast bone? Well, you probably wouldn't see that until the orgy following the ritual disembodiment… or whatever it is they get into these days. I’m sorry if I seem to cast a bit of aspersion on this finely aged thoroughbred from the titled aristocracy but… man! She looks the part.

Census Report: Half of Americans Poor or Near Poor

Forty-seven percent of Americans have incomes under twice the official poverty rate, making half of the country either poor or near-poor, according to figures released last week by the Census Bureau.

These figures are based on the Census Bureau’s Supplemental Poverty Measure (SPM), which takes into account government transfers and the regional cost-of-living in calculating the poverty rate. According to that calculation, there were 48.7 million people in poverty in the United States, three million higher than the official census figures released last month. The US poverty rate, according to the SPM, was 15.5 percent.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These numbers are morally, and socially, unacceptable.

Both parties talk a good game about getting the decent jobs back, which used to be the underpinning of a solid middle class.

But the destruction of the Middle Class, by the consistent offshoring/outsourcing of jobs, is no accident.

The major corporations fund both parties to look to the other way while these practices continue apace.

White House Chief Of Staff Negotiating Redaction Of CIA Torture Report

White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough is personally negotiating how much of the Senate's so-called torture report, a probe into the CIA’s post-9/11 detention and interrogation program, will be redacted, according to sources involved in the negotiations.

McDonough's leading role in the redaction discussion has raised eyebrows in the Senate, given that his position comes with a broad array of urgent responsibilities and that the Obama White House has a team of qualified national security advisers.

Despite the White House’s public reluctance to get involved in the widely aired spat between the CIA and the Senate Intelligence Committee over the report, McDonough’s role suggests that the Oval Office sees the feud as a high-stakes one.

The White House confirmed McDonough’s involvement in the negotiations, but would not discuss the extent of it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: this report on torture will simply go away, which is completely inappropriate.

US taxpayers should be able to, and in fact mandated, to read the entire report, to see how their taxpayer dollars were used in the application of torture to prisoners of war.

And I can assure you of one thing: waterboarding was not the most vicious procedure applied to those who were enduring torture, under the US government's watch.

Obama’s counterrevolution against the Founding Fathers

The French Revolution had its Napoleon Bonaparte and the 18th of Brumaire counterrevolution.

The American Revolution is witnessing a soft cover edition under President Obama, but without Napoleon’s “little whiff of grapeshot.”

Sermonizing on behalf of the president at Harvard Law School on Sept. 16, John Brennan, current Director of Central Intelligence (DCI) and then Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism, declared: “[O]ur highest priority is — and always will be — the safety and security of the American people. As President Obama has said, we have no greater responsibility as a government.”

But the president and DCI profoundly err. They have subordinated liberty to an effete quest for a risk-free existence, and inverted the nation’s philosophy and Constitution.

Edward Snowden Should Be Charged With Murder, Says Congressman Mike Rogers

Edward Snowden, the NSA whistleblower who revealed the extent of American and British surveillance programmes, should be charged with murder, according to a senior United States congressman.

Republican Mike Rogers, the chairman of the House of Representatives intelligence committee, told a meeting in the House of Commons in London on Tuesday evening that Snowden was a "traitor" who was now living in the "loving arms" of Russian spies.

"The [US] government has pressed charges on Mr Snowden," he said. "We are treating him, as I would argue, the traitor that he is." Rogers added: "And by the way, and this is important, I would charge him for murder."

Rogers also warned the gathering of British MPs and interested foreign policy professionals that British policy of restricting its strikes against Isis to Iraq was giving the Islamic militant group a "safe haven" in Syria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Congressman Rogers: you, and your British counterparts were thoroughly humiliated when Snowden did what he did.

And what Snowden did was to speak the truth; something to which you, and your colleagues in the security industrial complex, appear to be pathologically...allergic.

The further revelations of NSAgate, IRSgate, APgate, Americans understand that their lives are now under total surveillance, and every narrative which begins to suggest that we are not, needs to be put to absolute, scientific, and relentless scrutiny by We the People.

And I have to wonder, sir; by whom are you surveilled, that you would even begin to claim that Snowden is guilty of murder, when you cannot offer one shred of evidentiary proof that this is the case?!?

And in how many defense industry companies are you invested, that you would really like to see a return of the "cold war" between the US and Russia, looking at your Russia-bashing rhetoric here?!?

There should be a Constitutional Amendment, stating very clearly that every (alleged) Congressional representative must, upon winning office, put their finances in a blind trust, as must the US President.

Winning a seat as a national legislator should not be equivalent to winning the lottery, but unfortunately, that is the case right now.

10 Things About The U.S. News Media That They Do Not Want You To Know

Do you trust the news media? Do you believe that the information that they are giving you is true and accurate? If you answered yes to either of those questions, that places you in a steadily shrinking minority. Yes, on average Americans watch approximately 153 hours of television a month, but for their news they are increasingly turning to alternative sources of information such as this website. Big news channels such as CNN, MSNBC and Fox News are losing hordes of viewers, and they are desperately searching for answers. Things have gotten so bad at CNN that they have been forced to lay off hundreds of workers. The mainstream media is slowly dying, but they will never admit it. They are still convinced that they can find some way to turn this around and regain the trust of the American people. But it simply is not going to happen. The following are 10 things about the U.S. news media that they do not want you to know...

And the wisdom to know the difference.

Yet, the President of the United States promised CHANGE …. and yes, he kept his promise. Things have changed from bad to worse!

Are we expected to accept that?

19 Very Surprising Facts About The Messed Up State Of The U.S. Economy

Barack Obama and the Federal Reserve are lying to you. The "economic recovery" that we all keep hearing about is mostly just a mirage. The percentage of Americans that are employed has barely budged since the depths of the last recession, the labor force participation rate is at a 36 year low, the overall rate of homeownership is the lowest that it has been in nearly 20 years and approximately 49 percent of all Americans are financially dependent on the government at this point. In a recent article, I shared 12 charts that clearly demonstrate the permanent damage that has been done to our economy over the last decade. The response to that article was very strong. Many people were quite upset to learn that they were not being told the truth by our politicians and by the mainstream media. Sadly, the vast majority of Americans still have absolutely no idea what is being done to our economy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The biggest reality check, for Mike and me, is just going grocery shopping.

Yesterday, I was looking at the relatively small amount of groceries we got, for which we paid a Wiemar-republic sized bill, and the correlation between what we got, and what we paid for it was completely out of whack.

I do not know how people with families are making it, except to get the cheapest foods possible, most probably poisoned with GMO.

And those people who, as their government and banks told them to, have saved all their lives, to see their savings eaten away by inflation?!? They are probably never, ever going to believe anything that any government agency happens to tell them, even, if by wild chance, it is true.

Vote All You Want—The Secret Government Won’t Change

The voters who put Barack Obama in office expected some big changes. From the NSA’s warrantless wiretapping to Guantanamo Bay to the Patriot Act, candidate Obama was a defender of civil liberties and privacy, promising a dramatically different approach from his predecessor.

But six years into his administration, the Obama version of national security looks almost indistinguishable from the one he inherited. Guantanamo Bay remains open. The NSA has, if anything, become more aggressive in monitoring Americans. Drone strikes have escalated. Most recently it was reported that the same president who won a Nobel Prize in part for promoting nuclear disarmament is spending up to $1 trillion modernizing and revitalizing America’s nuclear weapons.

This has to be the source of my optimism because… what else could it be? The time is as right as it can get with the rigged election cycle coming up.

No Justice, No Peace: Darren Wilson Likely To Avoid Civil Rights Charges In Shooting

In an eye-opening piece run by the New York Times late Friday evening, federal government officials close to the Justice Department’s investigation of Michael Brown’s death state that the evidence they’ve seen so far does not support a civil rights charge against Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. An unarmed Brown was shot to death by Wilson on August 9th. The officials who spoke with the Times say that Wilson testified that Brown scuffled with him in his vehicle and caused him to fear for his life, leading to the fatal shooting.

What ‘Democracy’ Really Means in U.S. and New York Times Jargon: Latin America Edition

It is, of course, true that democratically elected leaders are capable of authoritarian measures. It is, for instance, democratically elected U.S. leaders who imprison people without charges for years, build secret domestic spying systems, and even assert the power to assassinate their own citizens without due process. Elections are no guarantee against tyranny. There are legitimate criticisms to be made of each of these leaders with regard to domestic measures and civic freedoms, as there is for virtually every government on the planet.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This country only observes human rights, freedom, and democracy.... in the absolute, post-Orwellian opposite of what these values are supposed to mean, both at home and abroad.

It doesn't matter, really, who gets elected to national office, because every single candidate has been co-opted by the huge financial rewards of those companies which fund election cycles.

What we have in the US right now is not a democratic republic, but horrific crony capitalism writ large, and all the attending misery it creates.

The Pauperization of Workers in the UK and America

Here is what happened: workers benefited from rising real incomes during the three quarters of deflation in 2009 – which probably was responsible for firing up moribund consumer spending. But it didn’t last long. In 2011 and 2012, a burst of inflation took it all away again.

It’s only during periods of low inflation or actual deflation that modern American workers get real wage increases. Turns out, the mix of slight inflation and slight deflation is good for workers!

But there is another huge group of people that has been taken to the cleaners: savers. These conservative investors don’t want to lose, in rigged financial markets, 30% or 40% or 50% of what little they have during the last 10 or 20 or 30 years of their lives. Unlike young folks, they have no way of ever re-earning their hard-earned money a second time, so to speak.

The Satanic Conning Towers of Subliminal Hellfire.

Let me address a serious problem. It has come up at another blog and I sense it regardless. Yes... the world is a mess and it is getting messier. This recent emergence of Ebola and other expressions of material darkness being generated by the Satanic elite is/can be very troubling. Along with this growing menace there are all the other looming catastrophes. America, owned by bankers and Satanists (they are synonymous), is being steered into conflicts all over the world and domestically a police state is emergent. One can easily see that this Ebola menace is being generated by the people who run the governments in order to be able to apply martial law. It's a good angle because people are susceptible to going along with evil policies if it appears they are being set into place to protect them. NOTHING could be further from the truth.

Supreme court backs California's foie gras ban

In a victory for animal rights activists, the US supreme court on Tuesday allowed California to continue to ban foie gras, a delicacy produced from the enlarged livers of ducks and geese that have been force-fed corn.

Rejecting a legal challenge to the law, the court declined to hear an appeal filed by restaurants and producers of foie gras. In doing so, the high court left intact an August 2013 ruling by the ninth US circuit court of appeals upholding the law.

California enacted the law in 2004 but it did not go into effect until 2012.

Foie gras means “fatty liver” in French. The product is produced by force-feeding corn to ducks and geese to enlarge their livers, which are harvested to make gourmet dishes. Animal rights groups contend that the force-feeding process is painful, gruesome and inhumane.

Clandestine Navy directorate's officers go on trial over secret weapons program

Trials are set to begin this month for two men accused of conspiring to manufacture untraceable automatic-rifle silencers for a clandestine Navy office. The directorate is suspected of running a secret weapons program.

A little-known Navy intelligence office at the Pentagon called the Directorate for Plans, Policy, Oversight and Integration paid $1.6 million for 349 silencers from a hot-rod auto mechanic in California ? who is the brother of the directorate’s boss, according to charging documents. The untraceable weapons attachments cost only $10,000 in parts and labor to manufacture.

India PM Orders ‘Heavy Losses’ in Pakistan

Firefights continued along the Line of Control between Indian and Pakistani Kashmir tonight, with Pakistan reporting 12 civilians slain in cross-border firing so far this month, and urging the United Nations to stop the growing clashes.

India’s Home Ministry reported the latest orders from Modi are “to ensure that Pakistan suffers deep and heavy losses” in the cross-border fighting, following up on Modi’s bragging about firing 1,000 mortars into Pakistani territory.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF India's Prime Minister Modi actually made those remarks, he will go down as one of India's worst warmonger Prime Ministers in its history.

Because it is not only the Pakistani military which will be killed and maimed for life as this conflict continues; it will also be Pakistan's innocent civilians; children; women; and the medically fragile elderly, unable to escape the firefights.

IF EVER there was a time for the UN and Dr. Ban Ki-Moon to "grow some male attributes" regarding this situation, it is now.

Both countries need to agree to UN peacekeepers on their border, and to back away from escalation of the conflict.

Then, representatives of BOTH countries need to enter into serious, binding arbitration to prevent this from ever happening between them again.

Unfortunately, however, this is very unlikely to happen, even though it desperately needs to happen, to prevent a regional war.

And please remember: the US and India have a mutual defense pact with India, signed in 2005, and goes through December 31st, 2015.
In any major confrontation between India and Pakistan, the US military would have to get involved in India's behalf.

The big question is, what would China do, in a larger military confrontation between India and Pakistan, for Pakistan?!?

Harry Reid's bodyguard attacks journalist for questioning the Senator's net worth

Journalist, activist and author Jason Mattera received a violent response from one of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s bodyguards after questioning the origins of Reid’s multi-million dollar net worth.

“How did you become so rich working in government?” asked Mattera who received no response after he and Reid had formally greeted.

hat's when one of Reid's bodyguards proceeded to put his hands on the journalist.

Even after Matera identified himself as press, the goon bodyguard continued to grip him up and drive him away from the Senator.

“I don’t care if you’re press or not,” the bodyguard explained.

Reid’s most recent net worth disclosure shows the Senator sitting somewhere between $2.9 and $6.7 million.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Reid, like so many of his contemporaries in Congress, continues to get rich from inside information, and both covert, and overt, corporate campaign donations.

This is why every time a Congressional representative makes the comment that they are supporting legislation "for the good of the people", they are lying through their teeth; they do what they do for their own financial gain, and the gain of those companies which support them financially.

NSA May Have Undercover Operatives in Foreign Companies

As a much-anticipated documentary about NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden premiers in New York this evening, new revelations are being published simultaneously that expose more information about the NSA’s work to compromise computer networks and devices.

Newly-brought-to-light documents leaked by Snowden discuss operations by the NSA working inside China, Germany and South Korea to help physically subvert and compromise foreign networks and equipment, according to a report published by The Intercept. They also suggest the NSA may have undercover agents planted inside companies to provide assistance in gaining access to systems in the global communications industry. And they bolster previous reports that the NSA works with U.S. and foreign companies to weaken their encryption systems.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Nothing surprises me any more about the lengths to which this federal government will go to subvert and surveille other governments.

They're among the brightest young minds in the country... and they think America is a bigger threat to world peace than ISIS: Harvard video survey reveals the value of a $60,000-a-year education

So much for the best and the brightest!

Harvard students believe that American is a bigger threat to world peace than ISIS, according to a recent survey of attendees at the prestigious Cambridge university.

Campus Reform, a self-styled 'campus watchdog' for conservative students, carried out the interviews in the quad at the Ivy League school on Saturday and asked: ‘Who is the bigger threat to world peace, ISIS or the U.S.?’

The students featured in the video were overwhelming in their belief that America and its interventionist foreign policy is a greater threat than the group of Muslim fanatics that have gained global notoriety in recent months through a series of video of Western hostages being beheaded.

Hello America, It's Me, Colorado

Amendment 67 is what's also known as "Personhood".
Personhood, if you've never heard of it before, is the movement to give fertilized eggs all the same rights as people -- two cells would have the same rights as you or your best friend. The group behind this movement, Personhood USA, is based right here in Denver. Every couple of years they try and write their fertilized egg = person ideas into my Constitution. The last couple of times most Coloradans have voted "NO" on these amendments and they've failed. But this year things are different.

This year, the Personhood USA folks are more deceptive.They've disguised "personhood" as something else. This year, they say they simply want to "protect pregnant women." Which is why when people read the language on their ballots, they think it sounds like a good idea. But it's not.
Here's what Amendment 67 would really do:

Outlaw all abortion in Colorado, even in cases of rape and incest.

Pharmaceutical millionaire: I didn’t force drugs down son’s throat

A pharmaceuticals millionaire charged with killing her developmentally disabled son in a deluxe hotel room told jurors Wednesday that she didn’t force drugs down his throat, as prosecutors maintain.

Taking the stand in her murder trial to give an account she’s long yearned to tell, Gigi Jordan depicted a failed murder-suicide — one her defense has said was spurred by a mother’s fears for her own life and her vulnerable son’s future.

“Did you give yourself and your son an amount of drugs that you believed would take your life and his?” asked one of her attorneys, Allan Brenner.

“Yes, I did,” Jordan said, her voice quavering.

But she denied the scenario prosecutors have painted: that she climbed on top of the comatose 8-year-old, forcibly opened his mouth and shoved a lethal dose of prescription medication down his throat with a syringe.

Notice that ISIS Isn’t Beheading Swiss Citizens

Like the United States, Switzerland has a welfare state and a regulated society.

Yet, notice something important: Switzerland isn’t the subject of terrorist attacks, and the Islamic State isn’t beheading Swiss citizens. Wouldn’t you think that if radical Muslims hate the United States for its freedom and values, they would also hate Switzerland for its freedom and values, especially since the freedom and values of the United States are similar to those of Switzerland, with one major exception?

So, what’s that major exception? Is it possible that that major exception could provide a clue as to which comes first: terrorism or U.S. interventionism?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let me say this straightaway: I do not condone ANY violence, period, end of discussion. That which is hardest, true, good-faith negotiations, is always the best.

However, that having been said, the American government's interventionism and pre-emptive wars (for profit, and maintaining the US dollar as the world's reserve currency) have not won it many friends around the world, particularly if people who have had innocent family members or friends slain, or maimed, as a result of the US government's mucking about with other people's countries.

Protests Erupt After St. Louis Police Officer Fatally Shoots Teen

A police officer fatally shot a teen who opened fire in St. Louis on Wednesday night, officials said. St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson said that the officer fired his weapon 17 times after "at least three" shots were fired at him. It was not immediately clear how many times the 18-year-old suspect was hit. The death sparked protests in the Shaw neighborhood in the south of the city. The incident occurred on the eve of demonstrations scheduled to take place in nearby Ferguson, Missouri, over the fatal shooting of teenager Michael Brown by police two months ago.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF this went down precisely the way the officer said it did, the incident was the polar opposite of what happened in the Michael Brown case, if in fact the young man was armed, and shot first.

But why did the three young men run off after spotting this officer?!? What is the story here?

And could he not have called for back-up, rather than running after them in a way which almost guaranteed that if they were armed, there was going to be a confrontation?

There are several areas of this story which make no sense, but appear to have been added by St Louis police to augment their "narrative" of what happened, and this is not new, in the process of police protecting their own, where police will simply lie to create cover for their actions.

Why have the police in Missouri not been trained in the use of non-lethal weapons which do not kill, and why do they not have such weapons to hand?!?

A non-lethal device which incapacitates a person without killing them, is a sedative dart, but the problem here is dosage.

If that problem can be overcome, rather than killing someone outright, I would much prefer that police departments carry these rather than bullets, or tasers, which can, and do, kill.

Badcop: Not First Offense for NYPD Cop Caught on Camera Pistol-Whipping Teen

The NYPD officer who used his gun to bludgeon an unarmed Brooklyn teenager in the face has been suspended without pay and might be indicted, after video footage of the violent August arrest went public this week.

But then, this isn’t Officer David Afanador’s first brush with the law he is sworn to uphold. Nor is it the first time that Afanador’s misconduct under the color of authority has involved a camera.

In 2009, Afanador was one of five officers who were defendants in a lawsuit against the NYPD. According to the complaint, Afanador and four of his colleagues were strip-searching a suspect on the street when plaintiff Ranique Williams walked by. For whatever reason—legally, he never needed one—Williams whipped out his camera and started snapping pictures.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The paramilitary training of American police (generally by Israeli resources) makes them believe they have a carte blanche to break every rule, and that they can get away with it.

Rogue police officers who behave in this way should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, and definitely need to re-define what the phrase "To Protect and Serve" means.

How The NSA Plans To Recruit Your Teenagers

Kids across America no longer have to wait until college to plan on being a part of the National Security Agency. In fact, they could start preparing for their NSA careers as early as age 13.

The NSA has began sponsoring cybersecurity camps for middle and high school students, agency recruiter Steven LaFountain told CNBC’s Eamon Javers in a recent interview. Six prototype camps launched this past summer, and the NSA hopes to expand the program to some 25 schools and, eventually, to have a presence in schools in all 50 states.

The camps, LaFountain told CNBC, teach “low-level programming… where most cybersecurity vulnerabilities are” and sponsor activities like a “wireless scavenger hunt” in which 10th graders were dispatched to hunt down “rogue access points.” The general idea is to eliminate “threats out there on the Internet”

“The students are really, really into it,” LaFountain added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The problem here, is what does the NSA consider a "threat"?!?

Is it a coming from a Christian pacifist (like myself) who believes that wars are a really lousy way of resolving geopolitical differences, and that good faith negotiations are always preferable to people getting killed or maimed for life?!?

IS it people who tell the truth about what a bloated, corrupt instrument of power and control, which always looks out for the monied, this Federal Government has become?!?

The NSA wants business to continue as usual for the major corporations and the wealthy, with never a logical thought about how much better life would be if people were exposed consistently to the truth, in order to have the power to make intelligent, rational choices in their lives.

President Obama Slams The Press: 'All It Does Is Feed Cynicism'

President Obama took another stab at the media on Tuesday, blaming it for spreading negativity and focusing too much on "phony scandals" rather than on the progress of the United States.

Speaking at the Democratic National Committee in New York City on Tuesday, Obama argued that the press was counteracting his mission and spreading "cynicism."

"The issues I’m fighting for, the issues that I will continue to fight for even after I leave this office, those issues are at stake," he said. "And we’ve got to be willing to fight for them. We’ve got to feel a sense of urgency about this at a time when, frankly, the press and Washington, all it does is feed cynicism.”

A memo to President Obama: thinking people understand, very clearly, that the press is not nearly cynical enough, in dealing with your administration.

Your domestic and international policies have been one epic fail after another.

With VAgate, IRSgate, APgate, Immigrationgate, NSAgate, andFastandFuriousgate, you cannot blame the press for having covered them; they were the polar opposite of "phoney scandals", sir, and they have all happened under your watch.

At the end of the day, you are enslaved to the large corporations and banks which brought you into power, and you will do anything to achieve the ends they dictate, no matter just how lousy they may be for the American people.

These wars, in which our finest military will be killed and maimed for life, are about corporate profit, and keeping the US dollar the world's reserve currency. That is simply the reality, and the American people are waking up to that reality.

And sir, I would strongly suggest that should another horrific incident happen in the US, another 9/11, but bigger, to further your war agenda, Americans are going to realize that none of the alphabet soup agencies in this country, the NSA, the DHL, CIA, and FBI, have been able to keep us safe, no matter how many times we are crotch-groped at the airport, and should be immediately collectively sacked, en masse.

The only thing that will, ultimately, keep the American people safe is for this country's government and military to stop mucking about in other people's countries to lay claim to their resources.

China builds military airstrip on disputed island, reports state media

Beijing has completed a runway for military aircraft on a South China Sea island also claimed by Vietnam, state-run media reported, as it asserts its territorial claims in the area.

The newly built facility stretches across Woody Island, part of the Paracel chain, China’s Xinhua news agency said late Tuesday.

The Paracels are also claimed by Vietnam and Taiwan, and tensions between Beijing and Hanoi rose this year over Chinese construction and oil exploration there.

The runway is Beijing’s latest physical assertion of control in the area, two years after it declared a city named Sansha centered on Woody Island — known as Yongxing in Chinese — to administer vast swathes of the South China Sea.

Vital shipping routes run through the waters and they are believed to sit atop vast oil and gas deposits. Parts of the sea are also claimed by the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan.

No charges against SWAT officers who maimed toddler during raid

Georgia law enforcement officers responsible for a bungled SWAT raid that left a toddler burned and disfigured will not face criminal charges, a grand jury has decided. The case is now being reviewed by federal officials.

News of the decision first broke on Monday, when a 23-person grand jury in Habersham County, Georgia, called the investigation “hurried and sloppy” but chose not to indict any officials involved in the SWAT operation’s planning or execution, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

During the May drug raid, 19-month-old infant Bounkham “Bou Bou” Phonesavanh had his face severely burned and disfigured after a flashbang grenade landed in his playpen while he was asleep. The baby – who underwent more than one surgery as a result of his injuries – had his nose detached from his face and suffered from an open gash in his chest as well as a collapsed lung.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Very obviously, the disfigurement of an innocent toddler is how Georgia police interpret the motto "...to protect and serve." But what is frightening is that the grand jury just let these cops walk.

I think this state just made my "never visit, EVER!" list.

And take a look at the following, just so you understand that police departments in Georgia are "equal opportunity killers" when it comes to age range of the people they try to (and do) assassinate in botched drug raids. As reported at policestateusa.com:

A drug task force gunned down a grandfather in his home during a botched late-night raid that was based on the word of a self-confessed meth addict and burglar who had robbed the property two nights prior. His grieving widow is disputing the official story regarding the no-knock raid that led to her husband’s untimely death. The devastating incident occurred the evening of September 24, 2014. David Hooks and his wife of 25 years, Teresa, had settled in for the evening; Mr. Hooks was asleep and his wife was upstairs in her craft room. At approximately 11:00 p.m., she noticed a vehicle abruptly race down her driveway. She saw men jump out of the vehicle and approach her home, donning black and camouflage clothing, shrouded in hoods. Mr. Hooks, a 59-year-old businessman, sprang from his bed and picked up a firearm, then took a defensive stand to protect his wife and home from the intruders. As he exited his bedroom, the back door of the house was breached, and gun-wielding home invaders charged in. What happened next was described as “chaos.” The intruders used their weapons to send a hail of gunfire into the residence; a total of 16-18 shots from rifles and .40 caliber handguns. When the gun smoke cleared, it became evident that the intruders were actually a Drug Task Force and members of the Laurens County Sheriff’s Response Team (SRT). Mr. Hooks was killed without returning fire. The officers claimed to be looking for methamphetamines. After searching the home forty-four (44) hours, not a single trace of narcotics was retrieved.

Exclusive: Missouri police plan for possible riots if Brown cop not charged

Missouri authorities are drawing up contingency plans and seeking intelligence from U.S. police departments on out-of-state agitators, fearing that fresh riots could erupt if a grand jury does not indict a white officer for killing a black teen.

The plans are being thrashed out in meetings being held two to three times a week, according to people who have attended them. The FBI said it was also involved in the discussions.

CDC Chief Frieden on Ebola: Sealing Borders 'Increases People's Distrust of Government'

On his blog on the website of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), director Dr. Tom Frieden wrote that sealing borders, restricting travel to and from countries with widespread cases of Ebola, and otherwise isolating communities infected with the deadly disease “increases people’s distrust of government, making them less likely to co-operate to help stop the spread of Ebola.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Frieden has been given is marching orders to keep the borders open, keep Americans buying airline tickets, keep them going to the malls for the Christmas shopping season, make sure they show up to vote, and especially not let them forget that what they are SUPPOSED to be afraid of are those eeeeeeeevil mooslims that need a good bombing.

The agency's continued repeating of lies based on false assumptions is already contributing to a dangerous, casual attitude about Ebola transmission that could cause this outbreak to explode across the United States.

Walmart Cuts Health Care Coverage For Most Part-Timers In Wake Of Obamacare

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. plans to eliminate health insurance coverage for some of its part-time U.S. employees in a move aimed at controlling rising health care costs of the nation's largest private employer.

Wal-Mart told The Associated Press that starting Jan. 1, it will no longer offer health insurance to employees who work less than an average of 30 hours a week. The move affects 30,000 employees, or about 5 percent of Wal-Mart's total part-time workforce, but comes after the company already had scaled back the number of part-time workers who were eligible for health insurance coverage since 2011.

"We had to make some tough decisions," Sally Welborn, Wal-Mart's senior vice president of benefits, told The Associated Press.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And what do you want to bet that starting 1 January 2015, NO ONE WILL BE WORKING OVER 30 HOURS AT WAL-MART?!?

Sometimes, workers may have pre-existing conditions which may make it impossible to find adequate health insurance, particularly with what Wal-Mart pays them.

Corporations, in their lust for profitability over everything else, tend to have the morals of a trout; this decision makes that painfully clear on the part of to Board of Directors at Wal-Mart.

Ebola Suicide Bombers and Ebola Bombers of Conscience.

I do not think that Ebola will take down civilization but it could well kill tens of millions of people. At the very least, you need to be taking high end colloidal silver daily. If it is half as efficacious as some people are saying it is, you could well be okay. Given the governments full support of Ebola proliferation AND the introduction of all kinds of other diseases and maladies through the government 'open borders policy', you are surrounded by ticking time bombs.

EXCLUSIVE: CPS Complaint Filed Against Texas Judge Over Daughter and Potential Ebola Exposure

Breitbart Texas has learned a complaint was filed with Texas Department of Family and Protective Services, also known as CPS. The complaint was filed on Sunday morning by a concerned Dallas citizen who had read about Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins going into the apartment where Ebola patient, Thomas Eric Duncan, lived while he was sick. Jenkins was in the apartment with four people who had been directly exposed by Duncan to the Ebola virus. Jenkins said, in a subsequent press conference that he was going home to his wife and nine-year-old daughter after he discussed being in the apartment again and driving the exposed family to their new home -- a forty-five minute drive. At no point did Jenkins appear to wear any protective clothing.

NATO Does Not Confirm Statement Attributed to Secretary General on Deploying Troops

North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) has not confirmed that NATO's Secretary General told the Polish TVP Info TV Channel that the alliance can deploy its troops wherever it wants, a spokesperson for NATO told RIA Novosti Monday.

"We don't have a record of him saying that in English - and we're not responsible for the Polish interpretation of the live interview," a spokesperson said, adding that Stoltenberg was referring to NATO forces in general, "which of course can be deployed on the territory of the Alliance as Allies decide."

NYC teen spends 3 years in solitary with NO TRIAL after being falsely accused of stealing backpack

On May 15, 2010, Kalief Browder was returning home from a party in the Bronx with a friend. He was stopped by police, who were working on a tip that he had robbed someone earlier that night. In the backseat of the police car, the man who provided that tip pointed at Browder and said he had stolen something from him.

“I didn’t do it,” Browder responded. “I didn’t steal anything. Check my pockets.”

The police went back to the car to consult with the man in the backseat, who then changed his story, and said that the robbery had occurred a few weeks earlier.

Browder accompanied the police to the station, thinking, “I’m just going to be here for a couple hours. We’ll clear up this misunderstanding.”

It would be three years before the “misunderstanding” was cleared up.

Infection Transmission During Air Travel

It is clear that due to lower air exchange rates and decreased sunlight, enclosed spaces such as buildings and transport vehicles are more susceptible to the transmission of infectious particles than are the outdoors.[1] Aircraft cabins are particularly worrisome due to high occupant densities and long exposure times. Well-documented outbreaks of tuberculosis, influenza, severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), and norovirus are alleged to have occurred during air travel.[2][3][4][5] All of these diseases are transmitted via either large droplets or aerosolization.[6]

Supreme Court denies gay marriage appeals

The Supreme Court has turned away appeals from five states seeking to prohibit same-sex marriages, paving the way for an immediate expansion of gay and lesbian unions.

The justices on Monday did not comment in rejecting appeals from Indiana, Oklahoma, Utah, Virginia and Wisconsin.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I find it hard to believe that so many people scream about the need for population control and yet fail to realize humans have a natural built-in population control mechanism in homosexuality. Careful study of history clearly shows that as social stress increases, the per-capita incidence of homosexuality increases. Maybe instead of "tolerating" the gays we should realize that they are indispensable to the long term survival of the human race!

Klayman files for deportation of Barack Obama

He has sued the National Security Agency, and won at the district court level.

He has sued to get Barack Obama’s birth certificate.

He has sued Hugo Chavez on behalf of torture victims.

He has sued journalists.

He has sued the Taliban and al-Qaida.

He sued Cuba and won a multimillion-dollar judgment.

Now Larry Klayman, the former Justice Department lawyer and founder of Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch, is suing to get President Obama deported.

Shipped out. Sent back. Removed.

“In sum, deportation proceedings should be immediately commenced, an investigation undertaken, a full evidentiary hearing held, and Barack Hussein Obama should be removed from the United States,” Klayman writes in his deportation petition.

The petition was sent to Thomas Homan of Enforcement Removal Operations at the Department of Homeland Security, Thomas Winkowksi of Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Sarah Kendall of the Office of Fraud Detection and National Security at DHS.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I had a great deal of respect for Klayman, before this happened.

Atlanta, GA - Jewish Newspaper Apologizes for Obama Assassination Scenario; Secret Service Investigates

The owner of a Jewish newspaper in Atlanta has said he deeply regrets writing a column suggesting that Israel consider “a hit” on Barack Obama if he stands in the way of the Jewish state defending itself.

Andrew Adler told the Guardian he wrote the column in the weekly Atlanta Jewish Times “to get a reaction” from the paper’s readers.

“The headline for the column was: ‘What would you do?’ That’s what I wanted to see,” he said. “It’s got like a Dr Phil reaction: what were you thinking? I feel really bad it did that.”

The column, first brought to light by Gawker, asks readers to imagine that they are the Israeli prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, confronting the threat posed by Hezbollah and Iran’s nuclear programme while also under pressure from a US president with an “Alice in Wonderland” belief in diplomacy over force.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I do not believe for a moment that Netanyahu and his cabinet have not considered a decapitation strike against Obama as an option. Some scholars suspect Israeli involvement with the John F. Kennedy assassination, owing to Kennedy's opposition to Israel's acquiring nuclear weapons.

Their sole consideration would be how Israel could get away with it, then blame it on another country.

And with "friends" like Israel....who needs enemies?!?

CDC chief on Ebola: We can’t shut the border

Tom Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, on Friday said restricting travel between the U.S. and West Africa would likely “backfire” and put Americans more at risk of contracting Ebola.

Appearing on MSNBC, Frieden was asked about potentially prohibiting air travel between the U.S. and West Africa, where the Ebola outbreak is most widespread. He said that such a restriction would likely be ineffective and would make it harder for health officials to root out the virus.

“The only way we’re going to get to zero risk is by stopping the outbreak at the source” in West Africa, Frieden said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Stopping the outbreak at the source sounds great; but do we leave US citizens hostage to more ebola infections in the meanwhile?!?

Because by not stopping flights out of some of the most hard hit countries in Africa, that is precisely what this government is doing.

I do not know if this is standard US governmental incompetence, or something else.

But I do know one thing: if there is one more ebola infection confirmed in the US, this man needs to be sacked and immediately.

Did America Fake Imminent Terror Threats To Justify Bombing Syria?

The claim has recently been made that the Obama administration concocted not only the imminent attacks on U.S. soil by the al-Qaeda cell The Khorasan Group, but the group itself, in order to make a case for self-defense and justify the bombing of Syria.

As outlandish as it may first appear that America would create a fictitious attack to justify its own attack, there is a pattern of just such fictions stretching back to nearly the very beginning of America’s wars.

President James Polk led America into one of its first foreign wars when he informed the congress that Mexico had attacked a U.S. Army detachment on American soil. In 1848, Abraham Lincoln, then a congressman, would make one of his first appearances in American history by standing up on the floor and demanding that the President inform the House of the exact spot upon which the attack took place. Polk would not answer. That first fictitious attack would justify the war with Mexico.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government routinely lies as the justification to start its wars, which means at this point in its history, it has completely delegitimized itself, and anything it says on any subject cannot be trusted at all.

The US government no longer governs with the consent of the governed; the governed have had no real say in the workings of the US government for quite some time now.

The US government only listens to the major corporations which fund election cycles, but the the people of this country have become expendable, redundant, and useless, in the eyes of this government.

It is high time that this changes, in the most peaceful way possible.

Ferguson Protesters Outfitted In Orange Jumpsuits And Jailed With High Bail (UPDATE)

More than a dozen people arrested during protests outside the Ferguson Police Department early Friday were outfitted with orange prison jumpsuits, slapped with high bail and locked behind bars for hours longer than most others arrested in earlier demonstrations against the police shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown.

The 13 protestors, including many seized while standing on the sidewalk, were arrested by police officers from St. Louis County Police and Missouri State Highway Patrol and were jailed in nearby St. Ann. Video of the arrests show protestors on the sidewalk, and not blocking the street, when officers moved in. They were charged with offenses that included failure to comply with police, noise ordinance violations and resisting arrest.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh, this is REALLY going to help mend race relations in Ferguson...NOT!!

It appears that the city, country, and police are doing everything possible to exacerbate the situation here, rather than ratchet down the tension, and almost feels.....deliberate.

But the big problems here are poverty,despair, and hopelessness. As reported in www.areavibes.com:

The income per capita in Ferguson is 8.1% less than the Missouri average and 20.5% less than the National average. The median household income in Ferguson is 16.2% less than the Missouri average and 29% less than the National average. The poverty level in Ferguson is 13.1% less than the Missouri average and 5.9% less than the National average. The median earnings for males in Ferguson is 46.1% greater than the median earnings for females in Ferguson.

Decent jobs, paying a livable wage, coupled with education, could make a tremendous difference here.

But unfortunately, creating situations where that could actually happen are very low on both the State's and Federal Government's agenda.

And until this happens, Furgeson, and all the small, poor towns like it in this country, will remain powder kegs, ready to erupt when the tragedy of another poor, unarmed African American kid gets blown away by another cop happens.

The Konyism of Samantha Power, US Ambassador to the United Nations

Obama’s administration sinks in the quicksand of its liberal ambitions –few of its liberal foreign policy objectives have been met; not the closing down of Guantanamo’s prison, nor the tethering of an out-of-control surveillance apparatus, nor even the War on Terror in general. In fact, Obama has intensified the drone warfare in Yemen and Pakistan, and tethered itself to a resurgent Saudi Arabia on the back of Qatari withdrawal. To polish its carapace, the Obama administration has become a latter-day believer in gay rights on the world stage. Power went on Jay Leno’s program to talk about global LGBT rights and held a Google hangout with human rights activists where the issue of LGBT rights was center-stage (later, on twitter, Power mourned the loss of “Eric Ohena Lembembe, a courageous Cameroonian activist tortured to death last month”). But, to stay on the Uganda story, Power did not raise the issue of LGBT rights and Uganda.

Labor Participation Rate Drops To 36 Year Low; Record 92.6 Million Americans Not In Labor Force

While by now everyone should know the answer, for those curious why the US unemployment rate just slid once more to a meager 5.9%, the lowest print since the summer of 2008, the answer is the same one we have shown every month since 2010: the collapse in the labor force participation rate, which in September slid from an already three decade low 62.8% to 62.7% - the lowest in over 36 years, matching the February 1978 lows. And while according to the Household Survey, 232,000 people found jobs, what is more disturbing is that the people not in the labor force, rose to a new record high, increasing by 315,000 to 92.6 million!

And that's how you get a fresh cycle low in the unemployment rate.

‘Obama to be remembered as someone who betrayed his supporters’

President Obama has turned out to be another failed big government president, who put America into a new war, spied on its own citizens, and made a disastrous health care reform, Executive Director of the Libertarian Party Carla Howell told RT.

RT: The US strikes on ISIS have already cost it around $780-930 million, which is not pleasant news for the American taxpayers but makes a profit for the industries involved. Does President Obama even know about discontent among his citizens?

Carla Howell: I’m sure he is fully informed; he has got an enormous staff to keep him informed of what is going on. Clearly, what he is trying to do is take credit for ending the war in Iraq, and yet at the same time he is beholden to the military industrial complex in America, their special interests, that want more military funding regardless of whether our Generals even want it or not. So he is trying to walk that line.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This President has been an epic fail on everything in which he has intervened.

On immigration; wars in the Middle East; Obamacare; Ebolagate; IRSgate, APgate, and NSAgate, he continues to to undercut working Americans, and makes life worse for most American people.

But you have to understand that such behaviour is completely predictable for a man beholden to the large corporations (including the banks) which have funded the election cycles in which he was (allegedly) elected and re-elected.

Large corporations love illegal immigration, because it cuts the cost of doing business; large corporations love wars, because wars mean profit, for so many companies; and large pharmaceutical corporations love illness, because treatments - rather than cures - are far more profitable.

His faux populism is just an act, and not a terribly convincing act at that; no more, no less.

At the end of the day, this man is a slave to all those who put him in power for one reason, and one reason only; profit.

And he has, and continues, to deliver that for them.

Police Departments Retaliate Against Organized "Cop Watch" Groups Across the US

When communities attempt to police the police, they often get, well... policed.

In several states, organized groups that use police scanners and knowledge of checkpoints to collectively monitor police activities by legally and peacefully filming cops on duty have said they've experienced retaliation, including unjustified detainment and arrests as well as police intimidation.

The groups operate under many decentralized organizations, most notably CopWatch and Cop Block, and have proliferated across the United States in the last decade - and especially in the aftermath of the events that continue to unfold in Ferguson, Missouri, after officer Darren Wilson fatally shot unarmed, black teenager Michael Brown.

Many such groups have begun proactively patrolling their communities with cameras at various times during the week, rather than reactively turning on their cameras when police enter into their neighborhoods or when they happen to be around police activity.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Judge Rebukes Government, Keeps Gitmo Force-Feeding Hearing Open

A federal judge has knocked down the government’s attempt to hold a secret hearing in a case challenging the military’s practice of force-feeding Guantanamo detainees who are on hunger strike.

U.S. District Judge Gladys Kessler called the government’s desire to close the proceedings “deeply troubling,” and chastised the Department of Justice for appearing to “deliberately” make the request “on short notice.”

The case involves Abu Wa’el Dhiab, a Syrian man who has been held at Guantanamo since 2002, though he was cleared for transfer out of the island prison by the military in 2009. He began a hunger strike last year and claims that he has been subjected to painful and abusive force-feedings. He has asked the federal court to intervene and stop the military forcing him from his cell and restraining him during the feedings.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good on Judge Kessler!

Anyone who has had the process proscribed by a doctor, during a convalescence, understands that even with the best, and most compassionate specialists, the process is uncomfortable at best.

To be used in a punitive manor against those who are on a hunger strike, when they have been cleared for release 5 years ago, is immoral and reprehensible
.

But, at all levels, unfortunately, that is what the US government has become: immoral and reprehensible.

Report: “Disaster Teams Were Notified Months Ago They Would Be Activated in October”

A public tweet from a large government supplier of emergency response products specializing in “high risk events” says that Disaster Assistance Response Teams were told to prepare to be activated in the month of October. The shocking revelation, made on the Goldenstate Fire/EMS Twitter page, suggests that not only did someone know that the Ebola virus would be reaching America, but that they knew exactly when it would happen.

“What we are now hearing is just the tip of the iceburg as we enter October,” noted the company’s Twitter spokesperson. “Ebola virus will cripple EMS and hospitals.”

When Future Money Trends, a follower of the page, asked what they meant by this statement, Goldenstate Fire/EMS responded with a shocking revelation.

A Supreme Court for billionaires, not voters

In case there was any remaining confusion with regard to the precise political intentions of the US Supreme Court’s activist majority, things were clarified Monday. The same majority that has made it easier for corporations to buy elections (with the Citizens United v. FEC decision) and for billionaires to become the dominant players in elections across the country (with the McCutcheon v. FEC decision) decided to make it harder for people in Ohio to vote.

Yes, this Court has messed with voting rights before, frequently and in damaging ways. It has barely been a year since the majority struck down key elements of the Voting Rights Act.

But Monday’s decision by the majority was especially blatant—and immediate. One day before early voting was set to begin in Ohio on Tuesday, the Supreme Court delayed the start of the process with a decision that will reduce the early voting period from thirty-five days to twenty-eight days.

On September 8th Edwards’ colleagues at the Marshall County Sheriff’s Outfit announced that he would not face any charges.

Earlier this year, when Mauro met with the school board, upon being assigned to Cornersville High School, principal Bob Edens was quoted as saying:

“He gets along great with the kids … He’s a big help to me, and a true friend. We’re blessed to have him.”

FLASHBACK - US Vaccines Caused 'Spanish Flu'

"The 1918 'Spanish Flu' started in American military Camp Funston, Fort Riley, USA amongst troops making ready for W.W.I - taking on board vaccinations, recruit training and all. It eventually killed about 40,000,000 people worldwide. That flu strain only appeared briefly once again, according to the US Atlanta CDC. This was in 1976 and again it struck at the US army camp Fort Dix, USA, amongst recently vaccinated troops (and no one else EVER); Fort Dix is known to have been a vaccine trial centre. Was the world's greatest 'influenza' scourge another well-hidden vaccine disaster?"---John P Heptonstall

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The 1918 flu pandemic was proclaimed the "Spanish Flu" even though it clearly did not originate in Spain. This suggests that even back then, something was being covered up.

This is worth recalling now that multiple sources have identified the Kenema bioweapons lab in Sierra Leone, operated by Fort Detrick and biologists from Tulane University (but now closed and under investigation by the Sierra Leone government), as the starting point for the current Ebola outbreak and that an Ebola vaccine being tested either accidentally or deliberately triggered the disease.

Russia could ditch US dollar in 2-3 years – head of Russia's #2 bank

Two to three years would be enough time for Russia to switch to international settlements to the ruble, Andrey Kostin, head of Russia’s second-biggest bank VTB, said.

“Two to three years is enough, not only to launch [settlements in rubles], but also to complete these mechanisms. But much will depend on how banks will cope with the task,” Kostin said in an interview with Izvestia newspaper.

Kostin first put forward the idea of switching to national currencies in international settlements about a decade ago, which means a move to the ruble shouldn’t be considered a counter-sanction measure.

"I did not find understanding in this matter with the previous leadership of the Central Bank [10 years ago ] They believed that since the [US] dollar works, we shouldn’t do anything, and settlements in rubles will just bring additional risks. Under the new leadership the position of the Central Bank changed. I think that soon we will achieve a major breakthrough,” Kostin said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With the ever growing frailty of the US economy (except for the already super-rich), I frankly doubt that it will take quite as much time for this to happen as Mr. Kostin postulates.

Worker Groups 'Alarmed' White House May Delay New Minimum Wage, Overtime Rule

It was once part of President Barack Obama's "We Can't Wait" economic agenda. But now the wait might be getting even longer.

The Labor Department is considering delaying a long-awaited rule that would extend new workplace protections to home care workers -- a possibility that has advocates for low-wage workers steamed.

In a letter addressed to Labor Secretary Tom Perez on Monday, more than 40 labor and advocacy groups said that they were "alarmed" by suggestions that officials might delay the new regulations and put a "historic workplace victory in jeopardy."

"The basic rights of two million home care workers -- predominantly women and disproportionately women of color -- once again hang in the balance, as the administration appears at risk of faltering in the face of opposition," they wrote.

The letter included signatures from the AFL-CIO labor federation, American Psychological Association and the National Employment Law Project, among others.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to the members of these groups: did you ever, for one millisecond, believe that this man, the ever-faithful servant of the banks and large corporations, represented YOU?!?

IF so, I would imagine that the absence of movement on this cause is a very rude awakening.

Obama's faux populism is simply that; an act, nothing more, nothing left. I am sorry that hurts right now, but it is the cold, hard reality.

By the time a national candidate is carefully vetted by the major corporations in this country, which expect those candidates to do their will, they no longer represent the people of this country at all.

In the shadow of Iran a new UAE oil port is transforming energy sector

In response to Iran’s strategic grip over oil passing through the Strait of Hormuz, a new export route for crude from the Persian Gulf is growing on the coast of the Arabian Sea, with the potential to transform global energy markets.

Giant tankers now queue in lines stretching for miles to load oil or refuel at Fujairah – a sleepy sheikhdom in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) – after the government invested billions of dollars into building a giant oil pipeline across the rugged Hajar mountains, with the aim of ending the potential stranglehold that Iran could place on the nation’s exports of crude.

The 21-mile-wide Hormuz channel handles a third of the world’s oil-tanker traffic and connects the Persian Gulf’s sheikhdoms to the Arabian Sea. Fears that Tehran could choke off exports shipped through it have been a concern weighing on oil markets for decades.

Mississippi Sued Over 'Hellish' Conditions in For-Profit Prison

At the East Mississippi Correctional Facility, sometimes incarcerated people are forced to resort to starting fires to get attention from negligent staff. (Photo: ACLU)

Denial of food and medical care. Cells and floors soiled with blood, urine, and feces. Excessive force by prison guards. Weeks, months, and years in solitary confinement.

These are the conditions found at a "special needs" for-profit prison, the East Mississippi Correctional Facility, which is tasked by the state's department of corrections with incarcerating 1,200 people, approximately 1,000 of whom have severe psychiatric disorders, according to a legal motion filed Friday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

THIS is what happens when you allow criminals to be incarcerated in for-profit prisons.

Of course, these contracts were well and truly purchased by these corporations, most probably in the form of bribes to the officials of the Mississippi Department of corrections.

This country has not been able, collectively, to make up its mind as to whether to punish or rehabilitate, so it winds up punishing, which nearly guarantees higher rates of recidivism.

Sweden is emptying its prisons, because of its commitment to rehabilitation; the US's prison population keeps growing. What is wrong with this picture?!? BLOODY EVERYTHING!!

Coach recalls missing student's wit, leadership

Yellow ribbons adorn the streets of Hannah Graham’s Northern Virginia neighborhood, symbols of hope in a community devastated by the disappearance of a woman described as extremely intelligent and witty, with a dry sense of humor.

Graham vanished on Sept. 13, her steps recorded by grainy surveillance videos as she walked unaccompanied on the streets of Charlottesville and its popular Downtown Mall, an open air center of shops, bars and restaurants. She is a sophomore at the University of Virginia.

A suspect in her disappearance, Jesse Leroy Matthew Jr., was extradited from Texas on Friday after he was arrested on a beach Wednesday near Galveston. Because of a statewide judicial conference at the courthouse, the earliest Matthew could make a court appearance is Thursday.

Police have charged Matthew, 32, with “abduction with intent to defile” the 18-year-old Graham. “Defile,” in a legal context, means “sexually molest.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I certainly hope this young woman is found safe. However, I have to wonder at why the corporate media is spending so much time on her case. The fact is that every single day in America, 2300 people go missing. Is this particular incident being sensationalized as a distraction to draw focus from the rush into war?

WOMAN BEATS MEN IN RAP BATTLE, SO THEY RAPE, SET HER ON FIRE AND SHOOT HER

Three men have reportedly been arrested after a brutal crime committed against a woman who beat them in a hip hop rap battle at a house party. Joey Betrail Garron, 28, Robert Carl Johnson, 23, and Ketorie Glover, 23 all of Columbus, Georgia could not handle losing to a woman in a hip hop rap battle, so they allegedly raped, beat, shot and doused the woman with gasoline setting her on fire before leaving her for dead.

Former Miami firefighter gets 27-year prison term in child porn case

Rousseau, who joined Miami Fire Rescue in 2007, was given a harsh sentence Wednesday by U.S. District Judge Michael Moore because of the numerous videos found on his laptop computer of prepubescent girls engaged in explicit sexual activity. The judge also concluded that Rousseau obstructed justice because he lied during his testimony, which increased the sentence.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My question is why aren't the parents of those girls also being tossed in jail!

My next question is why, if they could track this guys downloading the child porn, why didn't they track where he downloaded it from and arrest the people who made the video? Or are the producers of child porn, like the people behind all these massive credit card breaches, immune from the mighty NSA?

Third question. Did this firefighter get caught in a sting operation? And if so, doesn't that mean it is the US Government producing and distributing child porn?

Remember the War on Drugs? The government would arrest and imprison people buying and using illegal drugs but always stopped short of going after the drug kingpins, until the Iran-Contra scandal revealed that the largest drug smuggler in the country ... is the country, specifically CIA.

Are persons in our government child porn producers as well as drug smugglers, staging a few public arrests to protect their public image?

Traficant 'critical;' doctors to make determination within 72 hours

Ex-U.S. Rep. James A. Traficant Jr. is in “very critical condition” after an accident on his family farm, his wife, Tish Traficant, said today.

The former congressman, 73, is “sedated and he’s not doing well,” his wife told The Vindicator a few minutes before heading back to the St. Elizabeth Health Center in Youngstown, where he was taken after first being rushed to Salem Regional Hospital.

Traficant was driving a 1943 Ford tractor about 7:50 p.m. Tuesday at his family farm on West South Range Road about 140 feet into a large pole barn when the vehicle struck a large steel blade on the ground, said Goshen Police Chief Steve T. McDaniel.

That caused the tractor to flip with Traficant still in the vehicle’s seat, but trapped with the tractor on top of him, McDaniel said.

Home Depot Hack Is Letting Criminals Drain Money From People's Bank Accounts

Data breach at home improvement retailer Home Depot Inc has led to fraudulent transactions across the United States, draining cash from customer bank accounts, the Wall Street Journal said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And where is the mighty NSA in all this? The American taxpayer has been forced to surrender billions in tax dollars, not to mention the Bill of Rights, to create an all-encompassing data monitoring system we are told exists to find criminals and terrorists. Yet we have not heard a peep from the NSA in all these serious data breaches. Not once. And the NSA could certainly use some good PR right now!

So where are they?

Is this "We are watching you" a gigantic and costly bluff to scare the people into silent obedience? After all, the Nazis used the same trick to keep their population silent and uncomplaining as Germany was led to the slaughter.

Or, alternative theory; it is the NSA itself that is behind the data breaches. They certainly have the resources to carry out these crimes, and as already demonstrated, no regard for the laws of the land! Criminal activity in intelligence agencies is hardly new. The CIA was trafficking drugs from Vietnam, then later Central America, to fund operations they did not wish to tell Congress about. Maybe NSA is doing the exact same thing, with NSA employees "dipping into the take" to get the latest iPhone!

Because all these data breaches and not a word from the NSA makes no sense at all!

Senate Torture Report Vanishes

Since a “forgive and forget” forward-looking White House has already indicated that no one will ever be punished for illegal actions undertaken in the wake of 9/11, why is the torture issue important beyond the prima facie case that a war crime that was authorized by the highest levels of the federal government? It is important because of its constitutional implications and its impact on rule of law in the United States, which is again being flouted by the Administration in its rush to “destroy” ISIS, which is little more than a terrorist group du jour being exploited to terrify the American public. The constitutional issue, in its simplest terms, is that the CIA works for the president and when it operates without legally mandated oversight by the legislative branch and judiciary it does so in defiance of separation of powers, making the Agency little better than a secret army run by POTUS.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This stinks to high heaven; and until and unless this is released, and the accusations of real torture are addressed to their root, the country of the United States of America has absolutely no moral authority whatsoever, period, end of discussion.

When the judge issued his ruling, Qatada started weeping, the Telegraph reported.

The court in Amman ruled there was insufficient evidence to convict Abu Qatada on Wednesday.

FBI, DHS Go Full Scaremonger: Warn Police Of Airstrike-Inspired "Homegrown Extremists" & "Disgruntled Employee" Threats

While careful to note 'no specific threats' have been found, it appears the FBI and DHS have decided it's time to show why local police departments needed to be fully militarized after all. In the first bulletin, according to Bloomberg, US security officials warned federal and local police to watch for “homegrown violent extremists” who may be motivated to attack by airstrikes in Syria. In the second bulletin, the FBI and DHS assess that disgruntled and former employees pose a significant threat to US businesses due to their authorized access to sensitive information and the networks businesses rely on.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

the US government has moved from the alleged threat of "terrorism" to "scarrorism" in this country, to try to keep people from thinking straight.

But fear only lasts so long, before people get tired of it, and refuse to allow it to motivate their lives.

Peter King on ISIS: Be Ready for Attacks on US Soil

Intensifying U.S. airstrikes against the Islamic State (ISIS) could provoke members of the terror group already on U.S. soil to stage attacks here, Rep. Peter King tells Newsmax TV.

"First of all, these people would've attacked us anyway, but they may feel an urgency to do it now to show that ISIS can fight back, that ISIS is not going to take this," King, a New York Republican, said Tuesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show."

"We always have to be alert to them, [but] we have to be even more so now because they want to show . . . the Muslim world they're not going to sit back and take [it], they're going to fight back."

King, a member of the House Homeland Security Committee and chairman of the House Subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence, said he approves of intensified U.S. airstrikes against jihadists in the Middle East, although he wishes it had happened sooner.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Congressional Representative Peter King: if in fact ISIS (nudge, nudge, wink, wink) is able to attack the mainland, it means that every bit of surveillance, crotch groping at the airport, and spying by this government, has led to absolutely no actionable intelligence to prevent this from happening.

Should that happen, every security agency in the USA, the CIA, the DHS, FBI, and NSA, and DIA, have all failed, collectively and spectacularly.

Today the Pentagon is saying that the latest manufactured cartoon villain, Khorasanzilla, is in the final stages of a plot to carry out a terror attack on the United States. Funny how they can know there is a plot, that it is in its final stages, but don't know what the target is, or who is doing it. Funny. Really funny. Almost too weird to be believed, in fact!

Louisiana Police Chief Rapes Drunk Woman, Commits Perjury, Tells Town Officials to "Stick It" When They Call For His Resignation.

Police Chief Earl Theriot responded to a call for an intoxicated woman at a store. He took her back to the station and forced her to have sex with him. Theriot reportedly had the woman handcuffed and restrained with her belt at the time of the assault and stashed her under his desk in the police station.

When the woman filed a federal lawsuit against the chief, town officials called for his resignation. The chief denied he committed the crime and said "they can stick it." He lied to federal investigators about the incident, claiming she was never at the police station.

He then pleaded guilty and received a devastating sentence of PROBATION for two years (no jail time), a $2500 dollar fine, and was allowed to resign his job, which we can assume means he will keep his benefits.

Fitch Warns: When the Dollar’s ‘Pre-Eminent Reserve Currency Status’ Erodes…

It’s very risky for an American credit ratings agency to downgrade the US Government.

Standard & Poor’s found out when it stripped the US off its AAA rating in 2011 over the debt-ceiling charade. The Department of Justice then sued S&P over its role in the financial crisis, i.e. for slapping AAA-ratings on toxic securities to pocket fatter fees from issuers. But the other ratings agencies did the same thing and have not been hounded. So S&P claimed that the “impermissibly selective, punitive and meritless” lawsuit was “in retaliation” for the downgrade.

Though the Government denied the retaliation angle, it was a lesson no credit ratings agency within the long and sinewy arm of the Government would ever forget. But now Fitch is inching gingerly toward that abyss. While it affirmed (text) the US at AAA, Outlook Stable, it threw in some potentially devastating caveats.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is not a question of IF the US dollar will lose its global reserve currency status: it is a question of when.

Intelligent people, world-wide, are already factoring that into their financial decisions.

Top Senate lawmakers think they have found a way to allow states and local governments to tax Internet purchases: Link online sales taxes to separate legislation prohibiting Internet access taxes and pass it in the post-election lame duck session of Congress. The moratorium on access taxes runs out Dec. 11. A bill by Sen. Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., titled the Marketplace and Internet Tax Fairness Act, would extend the moratorium for a decade while allowing states to require online merchants to charge sales taxes. Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin, D-Ill., the number-two ranking Democrat, is a co-sponsor. The backers are hoping that access taxes — which would slap levies on customers for their Comcast or Verizon Internet accounts — will be the more unpopular of the two provisions and that Congress will accept the sales taxes to get rid of them. -

Healthcare.gov Is A Security Disaster... And Those Working On It Knew It, And Tried To Stop Independent Security Review To Hide It

We've written before about how problematic the technology is behind the federal healthcare.gov website, pointing out that the federal government hired political cronies rather than web development experts to build it. There was an effort to open source the code, but after the feds put the code on github, they removed it after people started pointing out just how bad it was. Then, just about a month ago, we noted that the government turned down a FOIA request from the Associated Press concerning the site's security practices, arguing that it might "give hackers enough information to break into the service." As we noted at the time, if revealing the basic security you have in place will give hackers a road map to breaking into the site, the site is not secure at all.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The referendum did not fail, it was stolen. There are photos of YES ballots on the NO piles. There are videos of ballot counters slipping YES votes into the NO piles and even filling out blank ballots to add to the NO piles. The counting center in Dundee was evacuated twice when someone set off false fire alarms, leaving the ballots and ballot boxes totally unguarded. Children as young as three were registered to vote and and because no ID was required, YES voters showed up only to find NO votes had been cast using their names. And there were no exit polls to confirm the official result.

As Kennedy stated, when peaceful revolution becomes impossible, violent revolution becomes inevitable. The violence is the result of the Scots knowing their referendum was rigged to keep them slaves to Britain.

The New "Regime Change" Plan - Attack Damascus From The South

There are serious active preparations for a new attack on Damascus. Anti-government forces, including the Al-Qaeda affiliate Jabhat al-Nusra, have been trained and equipped in Jordan and are now moving into their starting position in Quneitra governate in south-west Syria. (A similar plan in spring 2013 was only partially executed and later aborted.)

The anti-government forces now control a 40 miles (70km) long, three miles (5km) wide strip from Jordan along the Golan frontier up to Lebanon. This strip can be used to infiltrate into Hizbullah territory in south Lebanon but its main purpose is likely an attack on Damascus from the south. The Syrian military would have great difficulties to dislodge the anti-government forces from this strip as it is covered by Israeli anti-air and artillery fire.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When will this Administration collectively man up, and tell the American people the truth?!?

I am really, thoroughly disgusted with this government, and the interminable amounts of codswallop it expects Americans to swallow on a daily basis, in terms of the damned lies they are trying to get us to believe in to support this war.

This whole ISIS pretext for US military involvement, is about regime change in Syria and Iran, period, end of discussion.

The big questions here are, how soon Al-Assad will want to invoke his mutual defense pact with Iran, and just what Russia will do if, in fact, that mutual defense pact is invoked by Al-Assad.

Were I a betting woman, I would not bet against Russia getting involved militarily against the US in Iran's behalf.

And the hell of it is, neither the US nor Israel can reasonably expect to successfully wage a conventional war against Russia; they don't have the money, the manufacturing, or the troop strength to make this happen.

Additionally, I do not want to see the best and brightest of our military be killed or maimed for life over what is essentially a war for private profit.

And that is the dirty little secret of all wars; they are all ultimately about private profit.
