New laws to allow spies to hack into smartphones and computers ‘to be introduced in the coming weeks’

Britain’s spies are about to be given huge new powers that will allow them to look in on people’s phones and computers, according to reports.

A revived and re-named version of the hugely-controversial “Snoopers’ Charter” is set to give spies a “dizzying” range of surveillance and hacking powers, The Times has reported. The new legislation will be introduced next month, the paper reported.

YouTube Will Completely Remove Videos Of Creators Who Don’t Sign Its Red Subscription Deal

YouTube made its top video creators an offer they literally couldn’t refuse, or they’d have their content disappear. Today YouTube confirmed that any “partner” creator who earns a cut of ad revenue but doesn’t agree to sign its revenue share deal for its new YouTube Red $9.99 ad-free subscription will have their videos hidden from public view on both the ad-supported and ad-free tiers. That includes videos by popular comedians, musicians, game commentators, and DIY instructors, though not the average person that uploads clips.

It’s a tough pill to swallow that makes YouTube look like a bully. Though turning existing fans into paid subscribers instead of free viewers could earn creators more than the ad revenue, forcing them into the deal seems heavy-handed.

Thoughts On The American Empire and Its Decline

By Michael S. Rozeff
October 22, 2015

The American Empire is deteriorating. It’s been going downhill for decades. The descent is likely to continue, alleviated irregularly by policies that retard the decline or even reverse it for a time.

The IDEA that there is an American Empire is not widely recognized by the general public.

If the public doesn’t grasp that there is an American Empire, they cannot understand the idea that this empire is declining and headed for greater and greater failure.

“Herodotus believed that there were invariable laws to the rise and fall of empires. Empires rose and fell—as they still do today—because of individual decisions made by individual leaders.

“The greatest mistake made by those in power, like Darius, was the sin of hybris. That Greek word means ‘outrageous arrogance.’

America Looks A Lot Like Nazi Germany Did Just Prior To World War II

Once upon a time America fought a great war to rid the world of the Nazis, but now we have become just like them. In fact, I would venture to say that the Nazification of the United States is pretty much complete. As you will see below, we have a heavily socialized economy where tax rates are out of control and lots of freebies are given out just like the Nazis did. And just like the Nazis, our society has become highly militarized and our government has become increasingly obsessed with watching, tracking, monitoring and controlling the general population. But more than anything else, all of the pageantry and beauty in our society masks an evil which has grown to a level that is almost unspeakable.

Twenty-First-Century Fascism

Globalization of trade and central banking has propelled private corporations to positions of power and control never before seen in human history. Under advanced capitalism, the structural demands for a return on investment require an unending expansion of centralized capital in the hands of fewer and fewer people. The financial center of global capitalism is so highly concentrated that less than a few thousand people dominate and control $100 trillion of wealth.

The few thousand people controlling global capital amounts to less than 0.0001 percent of the world’s population. They are the transnational capitalist class (TCC), who, as the capitalist elite of the world, dominate nation-states through international trade agreements and transnational state organizations such as the World Bank, the Bank for International Settlements, and the International Monetary Fund.

Saudi Arabia is currently using US ships to block food, fuel, and medical supplies from entering Yemen, with US-manned ships “patrolling alongside”. Doctors Without Borders has reported that the blockade is “killing as many people in Yemen as the bombing”, and the Red Cross and other groups have said it is causing a humanitarian crisis, as Yemen imports almost one hundred percent of its food. While nationalist news outlet Reuters asserts that deals like the current weapons shipment to Saudi Arabia are “carefully vetted”, independent investigative journalist Gareth Porter asked the Obama regime about the clear “illegality of resupplying further munitions to the Saudis”, and was told only that the US has asked King Abdulaziz to investigate himself regarding his war crimes.

Air Force Confiscates Private Property Near Area 51

Last month, a family living near Area 51 reached out to the media, and revealed that not only has the US government harassed them for decades, but they’ve tried to confiscate the land which has been in their family since the 19th century. Now the Sheahan family’s struggle is coming to an end, as the government finalizes the transfer of their property to the US Air Force.

The government offered what would appear to be a generous sum of $5.2 million for the land, but the family turned it down. They believe that the property is worth way more than that. “I have a geologist friend who I took out there, who’s just a buff, and he said it is literally almost priceless” according to Barbara Sheahan “There is so much there, not only the ore which is in the ground that can be mined, but in all the intrinsic value of what’s on the land.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When the US government has resolved to confiscate private land, there is nothing it won't do to accomplish that goal; at that point, alleged "property rights" become meaningless.

How The White House And Paul Ryan Are Making Sure Forced Labor Remains Part Of Their Trade Deal

The House of Representatives will quickly get down to unfinished business once it returns from the holiday recess: defending trading partners that engage in slavery.

On the eve of the holiday recess last week, the Senate passed legislation giving President Barack Obama fast-track authority to shepherd trade deals through Congress. The anti-slavery provision was, for the White House and other backers of the deal, an unwelcome rider.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This just...makes me want to hurl.

There should be thousands of people, looking this agreement and realizing the horrific moral compromises which have been made here, in the name of the almighty buck, demonstrating (peacefully) in front of the White House, and chanting:

Ho, ho... hay hay....
Obama says that slavery stays,
Ho, ho... hay hay....
Obama says that slavery stays,

That the President, of all people, and Paul Ryan are the "fixers" to enable Malaysia in this manner, and assure the continued use of slave labor, against which US markets cannot possibly compete, boggles the mind.

How many more American jobs will be lost because of this?!? And will Americans have the gumption to completely boycott Malaysian goods in their stores, particularly clothing?!?

As Israeli authorities increase restrictions on Palestinian neighborhoods in occupied East Jerusalem, residents of al-Issawiya say humiliating inspections by Israeli forces have turned their lives into a “nightmare.”

“The Israeli occupation is trying to practice a policy of humiliation at the military checkpoints in the main exits of al-Issawiya,” said Hani al-Issawi, a member of a local committee to defend land in in the town.

“Residents are not allowed to leave the village in groups. Every single person must undergo inspections,” he added.

Men, including the elderly, are forced to pull up their shirts up and sometimes take their trousers down upon entrance and exit to the neighborhood, while many undergo physical inspections.

Another Government Ponzi Scheme Starts to Crack - Do You Depend on It?

Government employees get to do a lot of things that would land an ordinary citizen in prison.

For example, it’s legal for them to threaten and commit offensive, rather than defensive, violence. They can take property from others without their consent. They spy on anyone’s email and bank accounts whenever they please. They go into trillions of dollars in debt and then stick the unborn with the bill. They counterfeit the currency. They lie with misleading statistics and use accounting wizardry no business could get away. And this just scratches the surface…

The U.S. government also gets to run a special type of Ponzi scheme.

How Neocons Destabilized Europe

Exclusive: The neocon prescription of endless “regime change” is spreading chaos across the Middle East and now into Europe, yet the neocons still control the mainstream U.S. narrative and thus have diagnosed the problem as not enough “regime change,” as Robert Parry reports.

The refugee chaos that is now pushing deep into Europe – dramatized by gut-wrenching photos of Syrian toddler Aylan Kurdi whose body washed up on a beach in Turkey – started with the cavalier ambitions of American neocons and their liberal-interventionist sidekicks who planned to remake the Middle East and other parts of the world through “regime change.”

Instead of the promised wonders of “democracy promotion” and “human rights,” what these “anti-realists” have accomplished is to spread death, destruction and destabilization across the Middle East and parts of Africa and now into Ukraine and the heart of Europe. Yet, since these neocon forces still control the Official Narrative, their explanations get top billing – such as that there hasn’t been enough “regime change.”

Boom: A Federal Judge Just Handed The Obama Admin A Loss And The GOP A Win

The congressional Republican push to dismantle Obamacare scored a judicial victory this week when a federal judge determined that the U.S. House of Representatives has legal standing on which to pursue a constitutional challenge to the Obama administration.

According to CNN, the issue before U.S. District Court Judge Rosemary Collyer related to Obama’s implementation of a federal reimbursement program that would repay insurers forced to reduce costs for low-income enrollees. According to House Speaker John Boehner, the White House failed to obtain the legislative approval needed to enforce such a provision.

Britain Tightens Grip In Suffocation Of Free Speech

By Graham Vanbergen

‘Freedom of Press’ is published by the US-based Freedom House, an NGO established in 1941 that has been ranking countries worldwide since 1980 in relation to democracy, human rights and press freedom. In May 2014 it reported that Britain has slipped down the global rankings for freedom of the press to 36th place.

The organisation said press freedom and therefore free speech, had fallen to its lowest level for over a decade. It partly blames regressive steps in countries such as Libya, Turkey and Ukraine, as well as the actions taken against journalists reporting on national security issues in both the US and UK...

GCHQ handed new smartphone-hacking legal powers

Spy agencies in Britain will be given the explicit right to hack into smartphones and computers as part of a new law being introduced by the Conservative government.
Security services MI5, MI6 and GCHQ can already access electronic devices by exploiting software security vulnerabilities, but the legal foundation for the practice is under scrutiny.

New powers laid out in the Investigatory Powers Bill, due to be introduced in Parliament next month, will give spies a solid legal basis for hacking into computer systems, according to the Times.

The revelation has sparked criticism from human rights group Liberty, which accuses the government of giving spy agencies “unlimited potential” to act against citizens.

The State Department initially approved a weapons shipment from a California company to Libyans seeking to oust Moammar Gadhafi in 2011 even though a United Nations arms ban was in place, according to memos recovered from the burned-out compound in Benghazi. The documents, obtained by The Washington Times, show U.S. diplomats at the Benghazi compound were keeping track of several potential U.S.-sanctioned shipments to allies, one or more of which were destined for the Transitional National Council, the Libyan movement that was seeking to oust Gadhafi and form a new government.

BAGHDAD — The United States' top military officer said Tuesday that Iraq is not planning to turn to Russia for airstrikes and other military assistance in its fight against Islamic State militants.

“Both the minister of defense and the prime minister said absolutely there is no request right now for the Russians to support them,” Marine Gen. Joe Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said following a daylong visit to Iraq. Dunford met there with Iraqi and coalition officials.

Rand Paul Insists Again: "You've Got To Raise The Age" On Social Security

Rand Paul is once again insisting that the American people should wait longer, years longer in fact, to qualify for social security payments. Under the pretext of saving the budget, Paul wants to force the people to wait longer to get a pittance of the money they were forced to pay to the government throughout their lives. Paul himself is having a lot of trouble raising and handling his own money, and sent out a desperate e-mail yesterday begging for "an emergency influx of funds." If the American people don't pay their taxes, they will end up in prison or dead like 87-year-old Irwin Schiff and Ed and Elaine Brown, who are both in their 70s serving long prison terms. People should be able to retire at 65 years old if they want to. But Paul wants them to keep working, instead of taking other measures to save money, such as cutting aide to 'our closest ally' Israel.

Windows Update error forces some users to upgrade to Windows 10

Ever since Microsoft launched Windows 10, the company has come under fire for its aggressive update policies. In the weeks following launch, Windows 7 users were greeted with a giant “Reserve your upgrade today!” banner, every time they launched IE11 (if set to the default home page). At least one of our own writers had a system surprise-install the operating system, despite not being told to do so. And now, in an apparent repeat of what we thought was an odd corner case, Microsoft made an error in Windows Update that’s forcing people to upgrade to Windows 10, whether they wish to do so or not.

The problem, according to Microsoft, is that the Windows 10 Update was switched from “Optional” to “Mandatory” and automatically distributed to users who had “Download and install updates automatically” enabled. PCWorld reports that in at least some cases, users are now locked into an update cycle that they can’t cancel!

Things Are Getting Scary: Global Police, Precrime and the War on Domestic ‘Extremists’

snip: Incredibly, both reports use the words terrorist and extremist interchangeably. [...] These reports indicate that for the government, anyone seen as opposing the government—whether they’re Left, Right or somewhere in between—can be labeled an extremist. Fast forward a few years, and you have the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which President Obama has continually re-upped, that allows the military to take you out of your home, lock you up with no access to friends, family or the courts if you’re seen as an extremist. [...] And then, while you’re at it, urge your local governments to nullify everything the federal government does that is illegitimate, egregious or blatantly unconstitutional. If this sounds anti-government or extremist, perhaps it is, in much the same way that King himself was considered anti-government and extremist.

The Sad Fate of America’s Whistleblowers

What is it about whistleblowers that the powers that be can’t stand?

When I blew the whistle on the CIA’s illegal torture program, I was derided in many quarters as a traitor. My detractors in the government attacked me for violating my secrecy agreement, even as they ignored the oath we’d all taken to protect and defend the Constitution.

All of this happened despite the fact that the torture I helped expose is illegal in the United States. Torture also violates a number of international laws and treaties to which our country is signatory – some of which the United States itself was the driving force in drafting.

I was charged with three counts of espionage, all of which were eventually dropped when I took a plea to a lesser count. I had to choose between spending up to 30 months in prison and rolling the dice to risk a 45-year sentence. With five kids, and three of them under the age of 10, I took the plea.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Those in power cannot stand people standing up to their lies, and their cover-ups.

Unfortunately, right now, I can no longer believe ANYTHING the US government says any more, even if that happens to be the absolute truth, because they have lied with such consistency, particularly in the last 20 years.

And about these military misadventures in which the US government has been embroiled these last ten to 15 years?!?

These wars are not about "protecting the homeland", or "the American way of life"; they are fought only for private corporate profit, period, end of discussion.

I was watching an episode of "It Takes a Choir" last night, where a marvellous choirmaster, Gareth Malone, was working with a group of military spouses, both women and men, and creating a choir from this group.

I watched these very sweet people, dealing with the realities of being a military spouse, and I had to wonder; do they really know the real reasons their beloved ones were deployed?!?

Did they understand that large corporations were making a killing with lucrative contracts overseas? Did they understand that this is about "pacifying" various parts of the world, so that oil pipelines could be routed through them, or mineral wealth could be plundered for a song, and with none of the good of these corporate "arrangements" ever coming back to even slightly enrich the lives of the people living in these countries?!?

Please don't get me wrong; I have every respect for our men and women in uniform; I just wish to hell we had a government at least remotely capable of resolving geopolitical differences through honest, good-faith, deal-making negotiations. Unfortunately, it seems that this skill set is no longer a tool DC wants to use, and relies on militaristic bullying to get what it wants. But there is a finite upper limit to the effect this sabre-rattling can have, as the US is discovering in Syria.

Dystopian truth is stranger than dystopian fiction.

In New York City, the police now maintain an unknown number of military-grade vans outfitted with X-ray radiation, enabling cops to look through the walls of buildings or the sides of trucks. The technology was used in Afghanistan before being loosed on U.S. streets. Each X-ray van costs an estimated $729,000 to $825,000.

The NYPD will not reveal when, where, or how often they are used.

“I will not talk about anything at all about this,” New York Police Commissioner Bill Bratton told a journalist for the New York Post who pressed for details on the vans. “It falls into the range of security and counter-terrorism activity that we engage in.”

He added that “they’re not used to scan people for weapons.”

Here are some specific questions that New York City refuses to answer:

How is the NYPD ensuring that innocent New Yorkers are not subject to harmful X-ray radiation?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When Mike and I were attending a 9/11 commemorative convention in New York City, in 2011, where he was one of the speakers, we saw these vans in use at the time.

The one thing I can tell you is that the presence of these vehicles does not give one a "warm and fuzzy" feeling.

And the questions, as indicated above, are legitimate questions to which New Yorkers should be given some honest answers.

George W. Bush's Military Lies: The Real Story About the Undeniable Service Gaps He Got Away With

The parallel here should be underscored. Rather’s career with CBS was ended because he built his story on apparently fraudulent memos — their actual status remains undetermined — from Lt. Colonel. Jerry B. Killian. The most notable one, labeled “CYA” for “cover your ass,” claimed Killian was being pressured from above to give Bush undeserved better marks in his yearly evaluation. However, shortly after the original airing, Killian’s secretary, Marian Carr Knox, placed the memos’ status in an almost exact parallel to Woodward and Bernstein’s false reporting of an underlying true fact. “I didn’t type them,” Knox said in a broadcast interview, “However, the information in those is correct.”

Smith’s point here is simple:

Even if the documents could be criticized (falsely, it turns out), we can draw a close parallel with Woodward and Bernstein’s story on Haldeman: the story about Bush abandoning his service in the Air National Guard was also true.

Russia Today (RT) and Press TV (Iran’s satellite news channel) would have us believe that Russia and Iran are waging a Good ‘war on terror’ in Syria.

In reality, both Russia and Iran are, like the US, neo-imperial state structures engaging in geopolitical expansionism.

Oh, do grow up, you big girl's blouse! Government's crackdown on playground name calling is a regime worthy of the old East German Stasi, says RICHARD LITTLEJOHN

Nicknames have always been common currency. But whenever teasing and taunting escalated into outright bullying, you could rely on parents or teachers to intervene and have a quiet word. Or, in the case of my old headmaster, a rather loud word.

But there’s a world of difference between a stern ticking off and the kind of obsessive policing of speech and behaviour imposed on children as young as five today. They’re even being told they mustn’t use words like ‘cissy’.

These days, calling a boy a ‘big girl’s blouse’ is tantamount to ‘hate crime’.

The Government has just issued official guidelines to schools on how to deal with suspected racist and sexist language.

Fair enough, no one should be discriminated against on the grounds of their skin colour or ethnic background. But the new rules go much further, introducing a regime worthy of the old East German Stasi.

Income tax protestor dies handcuffed to prison bed

But my father was most known for his staunch opposition to the Federal Income Tax, for which the Federal Government labeled him a “tax protester.” But he had no objection to lawful, reasonable taxation. He was not an anarchist and believed that the state had an important, but limited role to play in market based economy. He opposed the Federal Government’s illegal and unconstitutional enforcement and collection of the income tax. His first book on this topic (he authored six books in total) How Anyone Can Stop Paying Income Taxes, published in 1982 became a New York Times best seller. His last, The Federal Mafia; How the Government Illegally Imposes and Unlawfully collects Income Taxes, the first of three editions published in 1992, became the only non-fiction, and second and last book to be banned in America. The only other book being Fanny Hill; Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure, banned for obscenity in 1821 and 1963.

They’re denied fundamental human rights mandated under international humanitarian laws - victimized by Israeli high crimes of war and against humanity, genocide by any standard.

They’re on their own for justice never gotten - the world community ignoring their longstanding pleas for help, siding with occupation viciousness.

Debt Ceiling Debate: Don’t Mention Warfare/Welfare State! (Ron Paul)

The US Treasury’s recent announcement that the government will reach the debt ceiling on November 3 means Congress will soon be debating raising the government’s borrowing limit again.

It has also shown the rest of the world the current capacities of the Russian army in situations of real warfare. To everyone’s astonishment, it has proved to possess a system of signal jamming capable of rendering the Atlantic Alliance deaf and blind. Despite a far superior budget, the United States have just lost their military domination.

NATO BLIND: Top Secret Russian Air Defence System Deployed in Syria

You are only as good as those you fight. The US military is great for gunning down innocent men,women and children all over the planet for their corporate and neocon masters.
They are absolutely no good for defending the USA from attack and are at this moment training to attack the American people. And they have now been caught not only giving aid and comfort to America's enemies,they the Pentagram creates Americas enemies out of whole cloth! Shameful!

Thierry Meyssan, a French journalist who has been based in Damascus for some years now, is reporting that Russia has deployed its most advanced, top secret air defence system in Syria, which has essentially “left NATO blind.”

While the West has been completely embarrassed by Russia’s swift and effective operation in Syria, it has now been utterly outclassed; so greatly that, as we shall hear below, even NATO Commanders are ‘worried’.

They are (in chronological order) Iran, Libya, Lebanon, Kuwait, Iraq, Somalia, Bosnia, Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, Sudan, Kosovo, Yemen, Pakistan, and now Syria. Latterly these efforts have been in the name of the War on Terror and the attempt to curb Islamic extremism.

Putin’s Plan For Syria & Beyond

BRZEZINSKI’S LIFELONG DREAM of bringing Russia under America’s thumb is going up in smoke.

According to Brzezinski, whoever controls the Central Asian heartland, “the Asian Balkans,” controls Eurasia, and ultimately the world…all to the ruin of Russia.

SUCKERING the Soviets into Afghanistan was part of Zbig’s Grand Chessboard strategy of picking off the ‘Istan countries to conquer the energy rich Caspian Sea and bisect Russia.

As an adjunct of using Osama bin Laden paired with Saudi-funded Wahhabism in the ‘Istan countries, Brzezinski sent by way of USAID, the CIA’s public alter ego, millions of corrupted Korans and textbooks filled with militant Islamic teachings and violent images to schools of Afghan children in orphanages and refugee camps, in order to hatch jihadist fanatics.

Many of the later generation of the Afghan Taliban were orphans from the war, raised and schooled with these corrupted Korans.

Rand Paul, who recent dissed the "idiots in the Republican Party running for president," is getting desperate.

Moments ago, he sent out an absolutely desperate e-mail begging for money. Rand, who actually admitted in an obscure 2013 Senate speech that he "meets with Israeli groups daily," sold out to the establishment long ago, (starting with endorsing Romney) in the hopes to run a more 'respectable' and 'mainstream' successful GOP campaign. But in reality it backfired on him, and deservedly so. Despite kissing up to the establishment toadies such as Henry Kissinger, Bill Gates, Sheldon Adelson and AIPAC, Randy raised only one quarter of what his father Ron did in the same quarter of Ron's last presidential campaign!

Though the information is now easily accessible, it's still technically classified — which means that service members, civilian employees, and government contractors put their security clearance at risk just by taking a peek, the Jacksonville Daily News reports.

"Just like with the 'Wikileaks' disclosures, individuals holding security clearances are technically not supposed to review the materials contained in the drone strike stories published by The Intercept," a national security attorney, Bradley P. Moss, told the Jacksonville Daily News. "The leaked materials are still considered classified and viewing classified documents, to which clearance holders are not authorized access is again, technically speaking, a security violation."

Until Putin’s speech the world was intimidated by the Washington Bully. Resistance to Washington brought swift retribution. In the Middle East and Africa it brought economic sanctions and military invasions that destroyed entire countries. In France and other US vassal states it brought multi-billion dollar confiscations of bank net worth as the price of not following Washington’s policies toward other countries.

There is nothing new in a government lying to their people to start a war. Indeed because most people prefer living in peace to bloody and horrific death in war, any government that desires to initiate a war usually lies to their people to create the illusion that support for the war is the only possible choice they can make.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Reposted as an "I told you so" following the release of the memo showing that George Bush and Tony Blair planned the Iraq war to remove Saddam a year before the actual invasion. Everything told to you to justify that war of conquest, including Saddam's nuclear weapons, was a lie to trick you into surrendering your money and the lives of your children for that war.

Sentiment Analysis of Law Enforcement-related Tweets across the U.S.

Public opinions on the topic of law enforcement and their controversial methods are sure to be as intense as they are wide ranging. To learn more, we gathered tweets about America’s peace officers and analyzed them to investigate public sentiment regarding our police force, as well as the polarizing topics of drugs and alcohol. Several factors related to law enforcement have driven both an increase in Twitter activity as well as a growing negativity. With more high-profile encounters serving as leading stories across news media recently, the number of opinions expressed by people on social media has exploded. Although many newsworthy police incidents are racially charged, drug- and alcohol-related encounters impact sentiment as well; interactions between those addicted to substances and law enforcement are especially volatile.

Gone are the days when you could search Google and pull up neutral, relevant content appropriate to your search query.

The world's new "Ministry of Truth", Google believes that screening and censoring information requested by its users will help avoid "websites full of misinformation" from showing up at the top of the search list. Known as the "Knowledge Vault," the novel algorithm is described by The New American as "an automated and super-charged version of Google's manually compiled fact database called Knowledge Graph."

The Assassination Complex

DRONES ARE A TOOL, not a policy. The policy is assassination. -- While every president since Gerald Ford has upheld an executive order banning assassinations by U.S. personnel, Congress has avoided legislating the issue or even defining the word “assassination.”

A Very Heavy Agenda Part 1 : A Catalyzing Event [Trailer] (Neocons exposed)

Post-9/11, the War on Terror had outlived its usefulness.
The minds behind the think tanks that drive America’s interventionist foreign policy decided that the U.S. needed a new enemy, so they chose an old one -- Russia.

Part 1: A Catalyzing Event 1hr 25mins

Cheney, Wolfowitz and Rumsfeld were ubiquitous in the news media as they took every available opportunity to market to America an aggressive preemptive war policy. But from where did their ideas originate? The answer is a tightly knit and eminently well placed group of neoconservative thought leaders, chief among them Bill Kristol and Robert Kagan. Part 1 begins in the panicked weeks after 9/11, as Kagan et al. seized upon the hysteria surrounding the anthrax letter attacks to further shape America’s perception of reality, planting the seeds for endless future military engagements. George W. Bush may have been understandably perceived as an idiot, but watching these wonks and academics drive the ideological engine for his administration belies a much more sophisticated strategy at play.

Texas Rancher Fights Back Against BLM Land Grab

Aderholt’s family has had a deed to the land since 1941, and he had hoped to pass the property and the family business on to his sons.

“They come down here a lot and play,” Aderholt told KAUZ News Channel 6. “They help with the cattle and help building fences. They are very interested in hanging round here and helping me out.”

But according to the Bureau of Land Management, the same federal government agency that confronted Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy in 2014, some of that land belongs to the feds, and they want the Aderholts off it.

Furthermore, the BLM claims the deed that proves Aderholt’s ownership of the land, given to his parents by the State of Texas, is worthless.

“The BLM is saying we should have never had a deed to it. That Texas should have never produced that deed,” Aderholt said.

'They don't care who gets killed': Ex-drone pilot turned whistleblower to RT

What masquerades as our government here in America is really a criminal gang run by Psychopaths!

Guilt-ridden American drone pilots continue to quit in unprecedented numbers. One former secret mission operator, Brandon Bryant, who’s received a whistleblower award, spoke to RT of the horrors of indiscriminate killing from a safe distance.

“The people that are giving the order to kill – they don’t care who gets killed as long as their target gets attacked… they’ll take out however many people they can in order to get their results,” Bryant says.

The plan is expected to be announced Monday.

80 year-old man held on marijuana trafficking charges busted after traffic stop—but is that really what happened?

An 80 year-old man who owns property throughout New England is facing drug trafficking and conspiracy charges related to allegations that he has been running a massive and illegal marijuana business. In addition to being an absurd waste of public resources, his prosecution raises disturbing questions about the trickle down of illegal spying from feds to local cops. Marshall Dion's latest round of legal troubles began in June 2013, when he was subjected to what the Boston Globe calls a "chance" traffic stop on a Kansas highway. "[A] police officer pulled him over for driving 80 in a 75 m.p.h. zone," the Globe reports. "During the stop, the officer searched Dion’s beat-up pickup truck and found nearly $850,000 in cash."

Russia can’t bomb its way to Syria peace: Obama

US President Barack Obama has warned Russia against its fight on Daesh terrorists in Syria, saying Moscow could not “bomb their way” to a peaceful solution in the war-torn country.

“They are not going to be able to bomb their way to a peaceful situation inside of Syria,” Obama said Friday during a joint press conference with visiting South Korean President Park Geun-Hye.

Obama made the remarks after US and Russia reached a provisional deal on aerial operations in Syria to prevent mid-air clashes in the Arab country.

He said the basic understanding aimed at “de-conflicting” US and Russian military in Syria does not mean that there has been a “meeting of the minds in terms of strategy.”

Russia has stepped up its bombing campaign in support of the government of Bashar al-Assad in fight against Daesh Takfiri terrorists.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Since, in the US's backing and funding of militants against Al-Assad, and arming them to destabilize Syria, Obama was attempting (allegedly, but not really) to do the same thing, how in the name of heaven can he accuse Russia, in light of the fact that they are successfully dealing with the liquidation of all jihadists, with Iranian help?!?

The man is delusional, that he would believe that he would not be caught in his own lies about Isis, Al Nusra, and Al Quaeda at some point, and the Russian government has just called him out on this.

Food Riots Are Coming As Cost Soars: “50 Million Americans Are Dealing With Food Insecurity”

Almost beyond belief, a full 79 percent of the people that use food banks purchase typically buy cheap, unhealthy food and still just have enough to feed their children. The price of food continues to quickly out-pace the paychecks of most middle class families. For example, the average price of ground beef has just hit a brand new all-time record high of $5.88 per pound! There are nearly 50 million Americans that are dealing with food insecurity in various degrees of distress. Just over one out of seven Americans rely on obtaining food from various banks at one point or another and these food banks are beginning to experience record shortages.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder how deliberately food insecurity is being pushed by this Federal Government, looking at it as the mechanism to create a tipping point, where riots will ensue, to be put down with extreme prejudice, and be used as the excuse to suspend the Constitution and Bill of Law, and impose martial law in this country.

This Police Department May Ban People Arrested For Crimes From Public Areas

Police in North Carolina may declare parts of the Charlotte metropolitan area off-limits to people who have been arrested for crimes, The Charlotte Observer reported this week.

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department says it is considering whether to propose an ordinance that would create "public safety zones," in which anyone arrested for a crime would be banned from returning to the zone for a year.

The proposal is still in the development phase and would need to be approved by the city council’s community safety committee, Deputy City Attorney Mark Newbold told The Huffington Post. He added that the city has not yet determined which type of public areas would be included in this new policy. "As it sits right now, we're still at the discussion level," he said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, Let me get this straight: people who were not convicted for crimes, but arrested for crimes, could be prevented from entering a "public safety zone" in Charlotte?!?

Apparently, the police in Charlotte have opted for "Code Napoleon" law, were the accused were considered guilty before proven innocent, and have abandoned the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

This is insane, but a creeping reality in many other cities as well.

According to the Verge, Ancestry.com, is seeking permission from the FDA to create a national DNA database. Ancestry.com claims they'll use your DNA to assess your families disease risk.

Would it shock you to know that Google, the NSA and DHS are using "front companies" to create a GLOBAL DNA database?
“On the heels of our AncestryHealth launch and our one million genotyped customers milestone for AncestryDNA, we’re excited to announce this collaboration with Calico to research and develop life changing solutions,” said Ken Chahine, Executive Vice President and Head of DNA and Health. “We have laid the groundwork for this effort through the combination of an unmatched family history database, one of the fastest growing genetic databases..."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Well, apparently, ancestry.com is not a benign service to help one find one's ancestral roots, but a willing collaborator with the NSA and DHS to create this database.

I used to think about using this to find out more about my ancestry, but hell, - not any more! And is Ancestry.com getting permission from its clients to use their genetic information in this database?!?

I would be willing to bet, not; whether you want to or not, your genetic information will be collected by the NSA and DHS, when you send it in for ethnic analysis.

At Toleman High School on Wednesday, a brief video sparked outrage showing a police officer violently arresting a 14 -year-old boy.

Police said that student was acting unruly before the incident, allegedly trying to fight another student, so they moved in. According to police, while the officer was trying to arrest the 14-year-old, the student’s 17-year-old brother attacked the officer.

The video does not show the attack; it only shows the 17-year-old boy face down on the floor. At this point, the 14-year-old approached the officer, and he’s immediately and violently slammed to the ground.

As the protest grew, the mayor got involved. “I’m asking you to put your trust in me,” Mayor Don Grebien said to the students. “I’m going to listen to you.”

According to WDAM, Grebien pleaded for the students to head back to class. He decided to meet with a few students at city hall.

As the police presence increased, so did the tension, and a window was allegedly broken.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

THIS... is the best police can do with highschoolers?!? PEPPER SPRAY THEM?!?!? Is THIS how the Rhode Island Police interprets "To Protect and Serve"?!?

I would strongly urge every single parent of every single student at that high school to withdraw their kids immediately. Take the entire school down by completely eliminating its tax base.

Home schooling is completely legal in this state, providing that certain provisions are met.

But this behaviour from the Rhode Island police, because they felt they were "being threatened"?!? Were these people trained by the IDF?!? Because, in training with the IDF, Americans are made to feel by their police rather like the Palestinians are treated by the IDF, including our kids.

Federal lands should stay in federal hands

Management of public lands has made headlines since the attempted gather of Cliven Bundy's cattle a year and a half ago. For more than 20 years, his cows have been grazing illegally on more than 300,000 acres of public land owned by all Americans. That land includes Gold Butte, a beautiful area of the desert between Lake Mead and Mesquite.

Bundy, who has a 160-acre ranch near the area, has said, "I don't recognize the United States government as even existing." He now owes more to the government than all other ranchers in America combined.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This author clearly has not read the Constitution, which includes a provision called the "Enclave Clause" which limits ownership of land by the Federal Government to land underneath federal Buildings and federally built facilities such as military bases, harbors, airports and so on. But while federal Government may care for the public lands as a service to the American people, they do not own them, nor can they treat those public lands as if they own them. The framers of the Constitution included that clause to prevent the Federal Government from solving its financial missteps by simply seizing the public lands and either selling them off or pledging them as collateral on borrowing. Sadly, this is exactly what the Federal Government has been doing ever since Richard Nixon ended gold convertibility of the US dollar, and started pledging the public lands as collateral for all government borrowing since then, now approaching 25% of the entire land mass of the United States! Bundy is right, and the BLM is wrong, under the Constitution.

Cop shoots dead unarmed boy, 17, after the teen flashed his lights at the patrol car to signal mechanical problem - but now the officer claims he was attacked first

The devastated family of an unarmed teenage boy who was shot dead by a Michigan sheriff's deputy earlier this year after flashing his car lights at him has filed a lawsuit against the officer.

Deven Guilford, 17, was pulled over by Sgt. Jonathan Frost, of Eaton County Sheriff's Department, on a cold evening in February after flashing the officer because he believed his brights were on.

During the traffic stop, Guilford refused to put his hands behind his back or give Frost any official documents, leading to an altercation between them, according to county prosecutor Doug Lloyd.

This ended with Guilford lying dead in a snow-filled ditch, having been shot seven times by Frost.

How Do You Prepare a Child for Life in the American Police State?

snip: What are we to tell our nation’s children about the role of police in their lives? Do you parrot the government line that police officers are community helpers who are to be trusted and obeyed at all times? Do you caution them to steer clear of a police officer, warning them that any interactions could have disastrous consequences? Or is there some happy medium between the two that, while being neither fairy tale nor horror story, can serve as a cautionary tale for young people who will encounter police at virtually every turn?

Rest In Peace, Pete Nosan of 'Restore The Republic': 7 Years Ago

This week marks the 7th anniversary of the tragedy of the suicide of Pete Nosan. He was the Southern California chapter leader of the late Aaron Russo's "Restore the Republic." He had refused to file his income tax returns and the IRS soon came after him, showed up to his job and seized his bank account. Soon afterwards, Pete used a gun and took his own life. I post this reminder not to romanticize or make the tragedy of suicide heroic or noble in any way. It is an unspeakable tragedy and terrible waste. Pete and I were not close friends and we didn't know each other that well, but he called me up and we had a long conversation about a month before he did this. We had actually met at an anti-war rally in L.A. and I had had my 9/11 truth stuff., and we immediately hit it off. Two Ron Paul supporters surrounded by a gaggle of hard-core leftists made for an amusing time that day.- but we agreed with them on the war, so it was fun.

Showdown Tonight At a Washington High School: A Look At 3 Legal Precedents Regarding Praying At Football Games

Tonight a football coach in Washington State has vowed to pray at the game, despite his employer's edict forbidding him to do so. Bremerton, Washington assistant High football coach Joe Kennedy has said he is going to stand his ground. Let's look at the three legal precedents on this issue which are being raised by the school district. Because these cases are all actually very interesting and it gives a big clue as to how this controversy will be decided. 1. Santa Fe Ind Sch Dist v Doe (U.S. Supreme Court, 2000) said schools may not allow prayers to be read- even by students - over the public address system at even optional extracurricular events, such as football games: "The choice between whether to attend these games or to risk facing a personally offensive religious ritual is in no practical sense an easy one. The Constitution, moreover, demands that the school may not force this difficult choice upon these students."

Special Forces To Change ‘Free The Oppressed’ Motto After Complaints From Afghans Holding Sex Slaves

FORT BRAGG, N.C. — Top Army leaders have ordered its elite Special Forces unit to change its motto from the Latin “De Opresso Liber” (To liberate the oppressed) to something that would be more culturally sensitive, after a large number of Afghans holding child sex slaves have complained.

“We want to make sure we are not offending our coalition partners and not judging them based on our own biases,” said Col. Dwight S. Barry, a Pentagon spokesperson.

In one high-profile incident, two Special Forces soldiers beat up an American-backed militia commander after they had learned he had raped a young boy and beat up his mother, a practice which goes back centuries and is perfectly normal in Afghan society. Fortunately, one of the American soldiers decided to leave the Army after the incident, while the other is being kicked out.
