Charlie Hebdo Massacre: Another Staged Event to Incite War and Destroy Freedom?

Many analysts are questioning the dubious timing and nature of all of these incidents, which come at just the right moment to lend credence to the US-led coalition against ISIS.It is nothing short of miraculous that just as various Western countries gear up for military strikes against ISIS in Iraq and Syria, ‘terror incidents’ hit their respective homelands right on cue to give the politicians their belated ‘casus belli’ for joining the campaign to be rid of ISIS.

French politicians and other Western leaders have been pontificating about Western ‘values’ and have selectively invoked ‘freedom of speech.’ “We live in a free and open democracy which has freedom of speech,” the West’s dishonest leaders say.

“Radical Muslims don’t believe in ‘our values,’ hence the necessity to fight them overseas” is the standard establishment talking point, trotted out time and again by the professional script readers fronting as presidents and prime ministers.

Mesmerized Ted Cruz Re-Tweeting Bibi Netanyahu Like a lost Puppy; Did Cruz Visit Jonathan Pollard's Wife With Bibi Too?

U.S. Senator Ted Cruz, who supposedly represents the state of Texas in Washington D.C., has two officially verified twitter accounts. On January 9th, Cruz re-tweeted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's message about the Paris attacks. Cruz is obviously completely enamored with Bibi Netanyahu and Israel, that's been obvious for a long time. He insists that Israel is our closet and most treasured ally in the world. But a month prior to Ted's re-tweet of Netanyahu's, Bibi had tweeted about his private meeting with the wife of convicted Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard. Netanyahu wants Pollard's release. Since he's such a staunch ally of Netanyahu, Did Ted Cruz go visit Pollard's wife also, to work for Pollard's release? If not, why not? After all, Cruz constantly insists that Israel and America have one and the same goals. So which is it, Teddy boy?

One Month Before Charlie Hebdo, Netanyahu's Angry Rant To France on Islamic Terror: "Does anyone in Paris talk about this!?"

In late November, Israeli Prime Minister 'Bibi' Netanyahu was asked "about the upcoming French Parliament vote to recognize a Palestinian State." Netanyahu gave an angry reply, which he re-tweeted later. He began with a rant about murderous Islamists, asking "Does anyone in Paris talk about this? This is what they have to do now when the world is exploding? I think this is a terribly misguided position. You know, we don't come out and say what countries or what regions of France should be independent...When Israel- the only democracy- is standing with France and with Europe to fight the Islamist fires..."

Monsanto’s fraudulent tomato patent revoked by patent office

As Natural News readers know, there are many documents riddled with loopholes and laws that squeak by based on cleverly crafted words. The situation was no different in this case; it was ultimately determined that Monsanto was attempting to be wise wordsmiths, saying that their patent focused on conventionally bred tomatoes that had a natural resistance to botrytis, a fungal disease, and should therefore be considered as an intervention. However, the tomatoes for the patent were accessed from an area in Germany that already had the resistance to begin with; Monsanto was attempting to pull the wool over people’s eyes by indicating that their techniques were unique and, therefore, patent-worthy.

Westminster paedophile ring: Top Tory MP 'murdered girl at vile orgy' claims new witness

The new witness has told police he watched the teenager being taken into a ­terrifying “medical room” by a senior Tory MP – and never saw her again.

The sickening events are said to have taken place at London’s notorious Dolphin Square flats in the 1990s, the Sunday People can reveal.

He fears the teenager may have been killed by a brutal sadist acting out his horrific fantasies.

It would make her the fourth reported murder victim of a Westminster-based pervert ring, some of them household names.

MOSSAD, HILARY CLINTON, JEB BUSH, SARAH KELLEN

Meanwhile, Jeb Bush ... has also been tainted by the Epstein scandal.

Jeb Bush was Governor of Florida in 2005 when Epstein was first charged with having sex with a 14-year old girl.

And it was Jeb Bush's administration and his Attorney General and successor, Charlie Crist, that first entered into negotiations with Epstein's lawyers, who included Dershowitz, Miami celebrity lawyer Roy Black, and Bill Clinton special prosecutor Kenneth Starr, to guarantee Epstein a 13-month house arrest sentence.

Governor Bush and his brother's Justice Department also helped craft a "Non Prosecution Agreement" (NPA) with Epstein's legal team. The NPA ensured that there would be no future federal charges brought against Epstein or any of his "co-conspirators."

'Sara Kensington' - very regal new name for girl in Epstein sex case

A beautiful blonde who allegedly recruited schoolgirls for sexual encounters with a paedophile friend of Prince Andrew has been ‘rewarded’ with a lavish jet-set lifestyle, complete with a new identity.

According to legal documents, Sarah Kellen, 31, managed a harem of under-age ‘sex slaves’ at a Palm Beach mansion in Florida where the Duke of York was treated to massages by Jeffrey Epstein, a billionaire financier who is under investigation by the FBI for alleged sex-trafficking.

As revealed by our photograph, however, Kellen is now moving in rather more elite circles... after dyeing her hair brown and adopting a false name.

FLASHBACK - The Skeleton In Alan Dershowitz'sCloset: The Resurrection Of Sue Barlach, His First Wife

According to an article written on March 25, 2007, by internet author Myles O. Morales, the controversial lawyer Alan M. Dershowitz has a big skeleton in his closet. It is the story of his first wife Sue Barlach, whom Dershowitz had been completely successful with hiding in his closet until the publication of that article made the rounds on the internet in 2007. Until now, an internet search to find Dershowitz's first wife's name came up empty.

‘Anyone but Bibi’: Israeli PM popularity slumps before elections

More than 230,000 dollars has come in from various donors in the United States. It makes up almost 90% of Benjamin Netanyahu's re-election funds, most of it coming from just three American families.

But even all that money can’t buy popularity – Bibi’s ratings are languishing, as voters look to alternatives, Paula Slier reports.

Israel Big Winners at ICC: Palestinians and US Taxpayers Too!

Turn on Your Smart Phone! Justice Calling! See You in Court!

This past week the International Criminal Court at the Hague accepted the application of Palestine to join the court. This so-called risky move by Palestinian President Abbas was both applauded by the world and sadly panned by the USA and Israel as being provocative and an obstacle to the “peace process”.Strange the USA and Israeli governments attempt to argue against a day in civil court right? Talk about being on the wrong side of humanity! Ouch!

I mean there is NO better way to behave in a civil society with our fellow man than going to court.

Going to court is the most excellent non-violent way to seek justice when injustice exists unchecked. It exposes our bad behavior to objective peers for a judgment that help us all better live together under commonly held values. Yet here we are watching the lost USA and Israel stand-alone against justice! Sad really!

The farce of Western free speech

Western free speech is nothing but a cynical charade by those in power to maintain their unlawful positions of power.

Speaking outside Elysée Palace in the aftermath of this week’s terror killings in France, former President Nicolas Sarkozy condemned the violence as “an attack on civilization.” Coiffured, sun-tanned and nattily dressed, Sarkozy’s solemn words made him appear like the embodiment of civility.

That’s a quaint turn in etiquette by a politician who is mired in allegations of sleaze and corruption, as well as war crimes.

Sarkozy wasn’t too concerned about “civilization” when he and his British allies launched the NATO bombing campaign of Libya in March 2011 in stark violation of a UN mandate. That seven-month onslaught led to the murder of Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi – from whom Sarkozy had gladly received hush-hush political donations in the past, before stabbing him in the back.

Colorado Fusion Center Bulletin: Law Enforcement Officers Should Minimize or Eliminate Social Media Footprint

The Colorado Information Analysis Center (CIAC) is disseminating this awareness bulletin to help law enforcement officers and military personnel to minimize their social media footprint and protect their identity and family. Recent calls for attacks against law enforcement officers by foreign terrorist organizations and recent reports released by the U.S. Senate Select Intelligence Committee’s report on the CIA’s Detention Interrogation Program may exacerbate tensions or even spark violence against officers, intelligence personnel, government officials, and their families. This awareness bulletin seeks to make general recommendations to limit an individual’s digital footprint and diminish a violent actor’s targeting capability.

Who ordered the attack against Charlie Hebdo?

While many French react to the attack against Charlie Hebdo denouncing Islam and demonstrating in the streets, Thierry Meyssan points out that the jihadist interpretation is impossible. While it would be tempting for him to see it as an Al Qaeda or Daesh operation, he envisages another, much more dangerous hypothesis.

Mavericks? Independents far outnumber Republicans and Democrats - and it’s recordbreaking

Republican, Democrat — and Maverick? We already know that Americans are weary of Congress, the White House, gridlock and government. Now that ire has inspired voter defections: The number of self-described ‘independents” is at a record high level says substantive new Gallup research. “An average 43 percent of Americans identified politically as independents in 2014,” says analyst Jeffrey M. Jones, who also reports the number is the highest since the pollster began tracking the phenomenon in 1988.

Jeffrey Epstein And A Long History Of Slime

Bill Cosby must be jealous of Jeffrey Epstein, the perverted financier.

The comedian’s career and public image have been swiftly ruined by allegations that he drugged and molested a series of female victims. Cosby, of course, has never been convicted of a crime.

But the secretive Epstein--who paid scores of underage girls to give him naked massages in his Palm Beach mansion while he masturbated and poked at them with a vibrator--somehow remains welcome in society, academic, and philanthropic circles.

Arkancide

Arkancide is the unfortunate habit of potential witnesses to the Clintons' dirty dealings in Arkansas suddenly deciding to shoot themselves twice in the back of the head. Police and Coroners in Arkansas, notably Fahmy Malak who answered to Governor Bill Clinton, automatically described these shootings as "suicides."

After Bill Clinton became President the phenomenon spilled over to Washington D.C. when Hillary Clinton's ex-lover Vincent Foster was "Arkancided."

Earlier this week, conservative talk show host Mark Levin warned that Barack Obama is campaigning and preparing the country for what amounts to a coup against the Constitution over the debt ceiling, Breitbart.com reported Sunday.

Jeffrey Epstein: Prince Andrew's paedo billionaire pal 'bullied journalist into suppressing exposé'

A journalist who planned to expose the Wall Street tycoon at the centre of the Prince Andrew “sex slave” saga says he bullied her into silence.

Vicky Ward claims that in 2002 two young sisters gave her harrowing accounts of how convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein had molested them.

British-born Vicky said Epstein “attacked both me and my sources” and “spooked” everyone at America’s influential Vanity Fair magazine out of printing the girls’ stories.

Her decision to speak out comes a week after it emerged that Virginia Roberts had claimed in court papers that she was forced to sleep with Prince Andrew when she was Epstein’s 17-year-old “sex slave”.

Former Florida governor Jeb Bush (R ) has made headlines for resigning from a number of boards – both non-profits and corporations. The media has widely recognized the moves as aimed at preparation for a 2016 presidential run. The very same week, he announced that he will be in Greenwich – a tax haven and center of monied elite – to fundraise for his political action committee. The Greenwich fundraising meeting is just a bookend to seven year that Bush spent on one goal alone: making huge amounts of money for himself from corporations that will eagerly seek access to a possible future President Bush.

US lawmakers 'bought and paid for' by Israel lobby: Scholar

Many US lawmakers are “bought and paid for” by the powerful pro-Israel lobby which cares more about Israel than the United States, an American scholar and journalist in Wisconsin says.

“The Israel lobby is giving orders to its paid stooges and traitors, like (US Senator) Lindsey Graham, who care more about Israel than America, telling them to go out and attack Iran,” said Dr. Kevin Barrett, one of America’s best-known critics of the “War on Terror.”

“It’s embarrassing to be an American today with these clowns and stooges in Congress like Lindsey Graham selling out their country for a hostile foreign power, Israel,” Barrett told Press TV on Saturday.

Weber, Backing Gohmert Over Boehner, Says ‘Retaliation’ Has Begun

The 114th Congress is barely underway, but Randy Weber, R-Texas, says he’s already paying a price for making known his intentions to vote against another term in leadership for Speaker John A. Boehner.

Weber, who backed the long-shot speakership bid of fellow Texan Rep. Louie Gohmert over Boehner, has been removed as the lead sponsor of a nuclear energy bill expected to brought to the floor in the 114th.

During a small meeting Tuesday of about 10 members of the Texas delegation to discuss the speaker’s race, Science, Space and Technology Chairman Lamar Smith, R-Texas, told Weber the speaker’s office had called and said Weber could not be the sponsor of that legislation, Weber told CQ Roll Call before the speaker vote this afternoon.

Bill Clinton And Underage Sex Slaves – This Could Be The End For Hillary’s Presidential Run In 2016

Why did a convicted billionaire pedophile named Jeffrey Epstein that pimped out underage girls to powerful men have 21 contact phone numbers for Bill Clinton? And why did Clinton fly on “multiple occasions” to the private Caribbean island where Epstein regularly held wild sexual orgies? Let me give you a hint: it was not to discuss politics over milk and cookies. Every once in a while, we get a small peek into the twisted sexual world of the global elite. In this case, a Florida lawsuit that alleges that Britain’s Prince Andrew had sex with a 17-year-old “sex slave” provided by Epstein is making headlines all over the planet. But of potentially even greater importance is what this lawsuit is revealing about Bill Clinton. If it can be proven that Bill Clinton had sex with underage girls provided by Jeffrey Epstein, that could potentially destroy any chance that Hillary Clinton has of winning the presidency in 2016.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wouldn't count on this scandal to work against Hillary. She will play the betrayed woman, and might actually gain a sympathy vote.

Ten questions Buckingham Palace MUST answer over Prince Andrew's 'under-age sex slave' scandal

In 2005, police began investigating Epstein’s abuse of young girls. The following year, they filed an affidavit saying that he should be charged with four counts of unlawful sex with a minor and one of molestation. In the meantime, dozens of alleged victims came forward. The case was settled in 2008, when Epstein struck a deal with prosecutors: he agreed to plead guilty to a single charge of soliciting prostitution from a minor, for which he would be jailed for 18 months.

In return, all other inquiries were dropped and immunity granted to a number of Epstein’s alleged associates, including Ms Maxwell.

That deal remains highly controversial, with many feeling that Epstein got off excessively lightly.

Jeffrey Epstein: Sordid high life of paedo billionaire who became Prince Andrew's pal

Maxwell was the daughter of disgraced newspaper tycoon Robert Maxwell, who died in 1991 after falling from his yacht when it emerged he had stolen hundreds of millions from the Daily Mirror pension fund. Epstein earned her gratitude and unswerving loyalty when he picked her up after her father’s death.

But court documents filed last week say their relationship took a sinister turn when Maxwell became “one of the main women whom Epstein used to procure under-aged girls for sexual activities and a primary co-conspirator in his sexual abuse and sex-trafficking”.

Roberts’ lawyers claim Maxwell took part in the sexual abuse and “took numerous sexually explicit pictures of underage girls involved in sexual activities” and shared these with Epstein.

Prince Andrew could face a Scotland Yard investigation over sex abuse claims

The Duke of York could face a Scotland Yard investigation into Virginia Roberts’s claims if she makes a formal complaint against him, police sources have confirmed.

Despite the fact that all criminal prosecutions are brought in the name of the Queen, members of the Royal family are not immune from the law.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Much as I like to see Andrew (and Dershowitz) sweat a bit, I am wondering if this is not a variation on the Dominic Strauss Khan gambit by the bankers. Strauss got too close to the issue of the missing gold, and was ejected with a tawdry sex scandal. This story about Andrew and Virginia Roberts actually goes back three years. So why the sudden heating up now?

Britain has been making noises about leaving the EU. Maybe this scandal is being used to blackmail the royals into supporting keeping Britain tangled up in Europe.

Money, or Mob: Al Sharpton and The Art of the Shakedown

What Al Sharpton is allowed to do from his new pulpit of respectability on MSNBC, or through his cash cow, National Action Network (NAN) touting the mob’s favorite threat, ‘No Justice, No Peace’ (unless he gets paid) is really no different, and as the New York Post recently points out – it’s nothing short of extortion. In their article entitled, “How Sharpton gets paid to not cry ‘racism’ at corporations”, journalist Isabel Vincent and Melissa Klein describe how Sharpton purposefully inserts himself into any possible situation that might contain racial overtones, or even undertones, positioning himself in front of various unwitting potential shakedown. He extracts his treasure in the form of donations and “consultancy fees”, usually payment for instructions on how not to fall foul of his politically correct and racially-charged mobs.

Obamacare vote to test Democrats’ resolve under Republican majority

House Republicans will hold a vote this week to change Obamacare’s definition of full-time work from 30 hours a week to the traditional 40, setting up an early test to see how many Democrats are willing to buck President Obama and his signature overhaul now that they are in the minority.

It’s part of the early agenda taking shape on Capitol Hill, where the GOP in both the House and Senate is planning votes on issues that have earned bipartisan support before, but which stalled as Democrats circled wagons to protect Mr. Obama politically.

Jeffrey Epstein, the convicted sex offender at the centre of a scandal that has seen allegations levelled at Prince Andrew that he had sex with an teenager, possessed up to 21 phone numbers for former President Bill Clinton stored in his computer, it has been claimed.

Epstein’s relationship with Mr Clinton has been previously reported on and it is known that between 2002-2005 he flew on the financier’s private jet on numerous occasions, both on charitable endeavours to places such as Africa, as well as to Epstein’s private Caribbean island, Little St James. It would later be alleged in court that Epstein organised orgies on that same private island in the US Virgin Islands.

Prince Andrew sex allegations: Documents about prince’s support for Jeffrey Epstein ‘concealed’

Documents that could reveal the extent of any lobbying by Prince Andrew on behalf of the sex offender Jeffrey Epstein are being kept out of the public eye after the millionaire financier obtained a court order declaring any such material confidential.

Lawyers acting for a woman who claims that she was forced to sleep with the Duke of York when she was a teenager alleged that he vouched for Epstein while the billionaire financier was negotiating a plea bargain with US prosecutors about an investigation into sex with underage girls.

In a highly unusual media counter-offensive, Buckingham Palace has twice issued denials that the Prince slept with Virginia Roberts on three occasions between 1999 and 2002 in London, New York and on a private Caribbean island during an orgy.

MUST-READ: A New Class of GMOs that Doesn’t Need Government Approval

Just when you thought that GMOs, as we know them today, were bad enough, get ready for something potentially worse to deal with.

In a recent New York Times article, it was reported that biotech companies have discovered and exploited a loophole in government regulation that allows them to create a different breed of GMOs and market them to the public without needing approval from the USDA.

They are doing this by inserting genetic material from a plant, instead of genetic material from a plant pest (GMOs are often inserted via a bacterium, which contains a genetic “on” switch from a plant virus). So, if it is material from a plant but not a plant pest, companies can circumvent the laws and avoid regulation, something which the USDA has confirmed.

Late-stage Obama suddenly wants to get along

Unfortunately, no modern president has been as bad as Obama at working with the political opposition. Obama's preferred method of negotiating with congressional Republicans so far has been blunt-force trauma. For the first two years of his presidency, he excluded GOP lawmakers from all important policy-making. His electoral mandate permitted this, but it was short-sighted in terms of making alliances for when his party inevitably lost its iron grip.

For the four years following the Republican takeover of the House in 2010, Obama tried to govern alone and failed to rally popular support against the “obstructionists” lined up against him. So it's a bit rich to hear that now, only after having taken major executive actions that imposed controversial policy changes without the Congress, he is suddenly making noises that he wants to cooperate.

Davos Elites Enjoys the Global Depression

When Klaus Schwab, founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum started the yearly pilgrimage to the inner sanctums of the Swiss Gnomes, he could hardly conceive that the ritual would turn into a celebrity bash of the super rich. The Davos venue is appropriate. Only rarified air is suitable for the global Mattoids. Billed as an assembly of business moguls, it really is more of an audition of well-heeled speculators vying for inclusion into the real power elites who make or break governments, economies and political destinies.

Using a combination of a Hollywood press agent, Madison Avenue ad firm and a media business channel the CNBC cheerleaders, the Davos clan relishes in their ill-gotten privilege and influence. The too big to fail mantra fits into the nihilism of their cult devotion of manipulated markets.

Woman who sued convicted billionaire over sex abuse levels claims at his friends

A woman allegedly kept as a sex slave by politically-connected billionaire investor Jeffrey Epstein, who went to jail for having sex with underaged girls, is accusing several prominent friends of the financier of having taken part in the debauchery, according to a new court filing.

The woman—referred to in court papers as Jane Doe #3—leveled the allegations Tuesday against Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz and Britain’s Prince Andrew, as well as British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell and French model scout Jean Luc Brunel.

Prince Andrew named in US lawsuit over underage sex claims

A woman who claims that an American investment banker loaned her to rich and powerful friends as an underage “sex slave” has alleged in a US court document that she was repeatedly forced to have sexual relations with Prince Andrew.

The accusation against the Duke of York is contained in a motion filed in a Florida court this week in connection with a long-running lawsuit brought by women who say they were exploited by Jeffrey Epstein, a multi-millionaire convicted of soliciting sex with an underage girl after a plea deal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Prince's lawyers are already claiming that the Prince is protected from prosecution by Epstein's prosecution deal, which blocks prosecution of all "co-conspirators", meaning the rich and powerful Epstein was pimping the girls to.

But in the court of world opinion, this is looking really bad for the elites (and really good for the masses, who need to face up to the reality of what kind of sub-humans rule them).



The above is a photograph of Prince Andrew. The young woman he has his arm around is identified as Virginia Roberts, who has come forward as Jane Doe #3 in the lawsuit. Virginia's presence at Epstein's "events" is confirmed by aircraft records and court documents.

Dershowitz named in lawsuit alleging abuse of underage sex slave

? ? ? ? ?

A federal lawsuit in Florida accuses Alan Dershowitz, the famed advocate for Israel, of sexually abusing a minor. Dershowitz has denied the charges and vowed to hit back.

The allegations come in a lawsuit by four women against the federal government for violating the rights of crime victims when it made a plea deal in 2008 with Jeffrey Epstein, the notorious financier, over allegations of sexual abuse of minors. Epstein ended up spending more than a year in prison.

The suit says that Dershowitz routinely had sexual relations with Epstein’s “sex slave” at a time when she was under 18 years old, and before she escaped Epstein. The JTA says that Dershowitz denies the charges:

Alan Dershowitz declared “totally, unequivocally and completely false” allegations that he enjoyed sexual services from a minor employed by a friend and client.

New Claims Prince Andrew Asked U.S. Prosecutors To Go Easy On Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein Over Human Trafficking Claims

Britain’s Prince Andrew allegedly lobbied the U.S. government to go easy on an American billionaire the FBI was investigating for holding sex slaves he allegedly shared with the prince and “many other powerful men,” according to claims in a court document obtained by RadarOnline.com.

Four women who allege they were Jeffrey Epstein’s sex slaves are suing the federal prosecutors for not conferring with them before reaching “a secret non-prosecution agreement” with the Wall Street money manager.

Instead of possible life sentences over human trafficking allegations, which included claims he shared teen sex slaves with his rich and powerful friends, Epstein was allowed to plead guilty to a far lesser state sex charge that sent him to a Florida prison for just 13 months.

PRINCE ANDREW & JEFFREY EPSTEIN: Can the Palace really make the denial stick?

Prince Andrew’s flat and emphatic denial of any complicity in abuse of a minor in 2001 suggests just how seriously Buckingham Palace is taking the resurfacing allegations about his sex life.

I first posted on this affair just over two years ago. The circumstantial and affidavit evidence now available in a new Court case accusing Jeffrey Epstein of pimping minors for the sexual gratification of himself and others is nothing more than consistent with the charges that sent him to jail four years ago. What remains a mystery wrapped up in socialite privilege is how Epstein managed to spend just 13 months in the poky, when trafficking charges such as those usually carry 10-20 year sentence guidance in US Courts.

Why was Antonio Sanchez' Birdman score disqualified for an Oscar?

We're concerned artists, composers, musicians and fans who wonder why the amazingly creative and ground-breaking drum score for Birdman by Antonio Sanchez was disqualified by the Academy.

The answers the Academy gave for their extremely peculiar decision disagree with the facts. The Academy reasons for disqualification are below, followed by the facts.

Academy: The biggest dramatic moments of the film were underscored by classical music. This dilutes the original score.

• Fact: The most memorable moments are scored by drums:
—Riggan’s attempt at suicide onstage
—His tormented destruction of his dressing room
—The most climactic moments of the film
• Fact: The classical music is not part of the score—it was part of the play and the events in the movie.
• Fact: The King's Speech score (nomination, 2010) was not disqualified, even though classical music not written by the film composer played a huge role in the film.

Judge Posner’s One-Way Mirror

Now, as reported by Glenn Greenwald, federal judge Richard Posner has come forward to tell us that that is exactly how things should be. “Like so many federal judges,” writes Greenwald, “Judge Posner recognizes rights only when they belong to agents of the state or the economic elite. When it’s ordinary citizens at issue, he snidely rejects any such protections. Of course, this is exactly backwards: those exercising public power (police officers) have a lower entitlement to privacy than private individuals. But power-servants like Judge Posner view only actors of the state and those who serve it (such as himself) as entitled to these prerogatives. That’s become the corrupt essence of the U.S. justice system, and it’s perfectly expressed by Judge Posner’s radically divergent views based on whose privacy is at stake.”

It Wasn't North Korea Or Russia: Sony Hack "Perpetrator" Said To Be Laid-Off, Disgruntled Employee

First it was, with "absolute certainly", North Korea. Then, out of the blue, an even more ridiculous theory emerged about the origin of the Sony hackers: Russia. Now, we finally get the truth, and as it turns out it was neither of the abovementioned sovereign actors who had nothing better to do than to hack movie scripts and racist emails: it was Sony's own disgruntled worker who was the source of the hack. According to Politico, FBI agents investigating the Sony Pictures hack were briefed Monday by a security firm that says its research points to laid-off Sony staff, not North Korea, as the perpetrator.

"Researchers from the cyber intelligence company Norse have said their own investigation into the data on the Sony attack doesn’t point to North Korea at all and instead indicates some combination of a disgruntled employee and hackers for piracy groups is at fault."

Jimmy Carter: From Nobel Prize to 'Terrorist' Ties

After losing the White House to Republican Ronald Reagan in 1980, Carter established the Carter Center two years later with his wife, Rosalynn, to continue his global humanitarian work.

He won his own Nobel prize in 2002 for his human-rights work. Carter turned 90 on Oct. 1.

But those years have also seen Carter voicing strong anti-Israel views and support for terrorist groups. His 2006 book — "Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid" — came under widespread attack for asserting that Israel's settlement on Palestinian land was the main impediment to peace in the Middle East.

He also has met with leaders of the Muslim Brotherhood and has accused Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of being too eager to go to war with Iran over its nuclear ambitions.

Campaigning MP John Mann said he was approached last week by a victim who claims to have been abused by the politicians – one a peer – in the 1980s and has passed the detailed allegations to detectives.

The latest phase in his search for the truth about a suspected Westminster child sex ring came as he called for retired detectives to be granted an unprecedented amnesty from the Official Secrets Act to help lift the lid on alleged VIP abusers.

Civil Asset Forfeiture: The Final Stage Of Collapse Of Empire

Philadelphia prosecutors agreed last Thursday to halt efforts to seize the homes of two of the lead plaintiffs in a widely publicized federal suit challenging the city’s use of civil forfeiture laws in drug cases.

Philadelphia drops a Civil Asset Forfeiture case to prevent any court from ruling just seizing people’s property is unconstitutional. Phily.COM has reported the case of Christos Sourovelis and Doila Welch,who were both caught up in having their homes seized to pay police pensions when the police arrested a relative they claimed was dealing drugs on their properties. Today, you basically have to shun relatives and never pick up a hick-hiker in trouble for if they have any drugs, even marijuana, there goes your assets.

Maui Lawsuit Alleges Minors Placed in Foster Care Repeatedly Sexually Assaulted

A civil lawsuit filed on November 17, 2014, in Maui Circuit Court, alleges that two minors, placed in the custody of a foster parent by the Department of Human Services ("DHS"), were repeatedly sexually assaulted from 2009 to 2011 .

The foster parent, Florentino Rios, moved from Puerto Rico to Maui in 2008. While living in Puerto Rico, Mr. Rios married a 14-year old girl. Shortly after moving to Maui, Mr. Rios changed his name to Zack Morris, to emulate the fictional character from the children's sitcom "Saved by the Bell." Despite being unemployed and residing in a homeless shelter, Mr. Rios applied to be a foster parent, and was deemed fit to serve as one by DHS.

The most censored health news stories of 2014 - here's what the establishment doesn't want you to remember

2014 was a year in which we watched the mainstream media devolve into a spot-on depiction of George Orwell's Ministry of Truth, engaging in White House-ordered news story blackouts, CDC-inspired anti-health propaganda that endangered the public and corporate-funded disinfo campaigns disguised as news.

But what were the biggest health-related censored news stories of the year? That's what this Natural News article is all about. Consider it a short list of things the establishment doesn't want you to remember actually happened.

School teachers forced to wear scarlet letter flu masks, gloves when they refuse flu shots that don't even work

The vaccine mafia is upping the stakes in its endless war against free thinking and personal choice. A shocking new report indicates that some daycare workers in Texas are now being forced to wear face masks and gloves throughout the duration of "flu season" if they refuse to be injected with live viruses and mercury.

Citing a letter received from a concerned daycare worker in the College Station area of central Texas, VacTruth.com reports that at least one daycare center in the region, Covenant Presbyterian Children's Center (CPCC), has implemented the egregious policy, which is akin to forcibly labeling all resisters with a giant scarlet letter in order to coerce compliance.

Conspiracy Of Silence Banned Discovery Channel Documentary

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As we watch the unraveling of the pedophile scandal at the heights of the British Government, it is worth recalling that the US Government is not above such things, and had a similar scandal called the Franklin Scandal in 1989 that reached all the way to the White House. This documentary was produced by British journalists and scheduled to appear on The Dicovery Channel, but members of Congress threatened to destroy the then-fledgling cable TV industry if this was allowed to air. Discovery caved in and yanked the program from the schedule even though it was already listed in TV Guide magazine. An anonymous party then purchased the rights to the documentary and ordered all copies destroyed. But an editing work tape survived to teach us all the true nature of the people who seek political power over the rest of us.

US senator Graham threatens to defund UN over Palestine bid

Visiting US Senator Lindsey Graham threatened Saturday to withhold US funding from the UN, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu lashed out at the Palestinian Authority, a day after a senior Palestinian official said the PA will push for a UN vote on the Palestinian statehood bid by Monday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Go ahead, Lindsey; yank the US funding. Then the UN will have no problem kicking both the US out, which means Israel will no longer have the almighty US veto to protect itself in the Security Council. As for the UN, they will have to act against this obvious intimidation tactic by the US or risk losing what little remains of their credibility.

Westminster paedophile ring: Jailed Charles Napier will be told to name VIP abusers

Caged child abuser Charles Napier faces a grilling by detectives who believe he could help expose a network of VIP paedophiles with links to Westminster.

Officers probing claims that span decades think the former teacher – jailed last week for abusing 23 boys – can name Establishment figures including peers, Government ministers, ­civil servants and police.

Napier, 67, was treasurer of the twisted Paedophile Information Exchange, which ­campaigned on behalf of ­paedophiles in the 1970s and 1980s and ­argued that the age of consent should be lowered to FOUR.

Dossiers compiled by ­campaigning MP Geoffrey Dickens and handed to former Home Secretary Leon Brittan in the 1980s were said to contain damning ­evidence about the group.

The secret GMO war: double agents, betrayal, greed?Dec26

Well, let me put it to you this way. What would happen to Whole Foods’ program of voluntary GMO labeling if there were mandatory labeling across America, or in any state where Whole Foods does business?

Can you guess?

I’ll break it down. Whole Foods has pledged to put “non-GMO” labels on their products by 2018. They’ll do everything they can to sell as many non-GMO products as possible. The products that don’t carry the non-GMO seal will obviously be GMO, and customers can avoid them if they want to.

On the other hand, if suddenly, out of the blue, mandatory labeling became law, the whole voluntary non-GMO label enterprise would be obsolete. Why voluntarily put that label on products when mandatory labeling handles the whole issue?

“We put non-GMO labels on our food. Aren’t we wonderful?”

“Not really. The mandatory labels tell me everything that’s GMO. All the other products are non-GMO. Thanks, but no thanks.”

“I do not believe that Obama has been one to cultivate the relationship,” said Carson, a retired neurosurgeon who has emerged as a favourite of some conservatives in the early field of possible GOP candidates.

ISRAEL …. THE CROOKED COALITION COMES TO LIGHT

Israeli police have arrested more than two dozen current and former officials in a corruption probe, including several from the party of Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, a police spokeswoman said Thursday.

Local media reported that the investigation was one of the most “important” anti-graft operations in the country’s history and could strike a blow to Lieberman’s Yisrael Beitenu party just three months away from a general election.

According to police, “millions” of shekels of public funds have allegedly been transferred to organizations close to the party.

Officials implicated include the deputy interior minister Faina Kirshenbaum, who has been questioned by police. Her daughter Ronit will remain in custody until Sunday, the spokeswoman said.

Former tourism minister Stas Misezhnikov was also detained.

Surprise! IRS is as crooked as other government agencies, report reveals

Rep. Darrell Issa, who will be turning over his gavel as chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee to fellow Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz in January, on Tuesday released a follow up congressional report on alleged corruption, fraud and overall political shenanigans occurring at the Internal Revenue Service. The report should not surprise any clear-thinking American taxpayer since those who actually paid attention to the IRS probe know that the tax-collecting bureaucracy is as crooked -- if not more crooked -- than other federal agencies involved in scandalous conduct, claim a number of law enforcement officials and political strategists.

This Was One Of The Biggest Lies Ever Told

In 2006, Andrew Natsios, administrator of USAID, went on a publicity tour to assuage American fears that the impending war and its aftermath were perfectly reasonable expenditures for the American taxpayer. In this Nightline interview with Ted Koppel he brazenly makes the ludicrous case that the reconstruction of Iraq would cost only $1.7bn. Koppel is so incredulous, he returns to the subject three times, and each time Natsios gets more and more adamant. With the benefit of hindsight its clear now that not only was this a bold face lie, but one that any rational person could have seen through.

The NY Fed shipped approximately $40 billion in cash between 2003 and 2008. In just the first two years, the shipments included more than 300 million individual bills weighing a total of 363 tons.

Since then there have been audits, congressional hearing and investigations that can barely account for a small percentage of where that money actually ended up.

Our corrupt, self-protective, unaccountable Establishment – Michael Meacher MP

The mood of this corrupt closing of ranks to protect one of their own is best caught by the machinations reported today of how the Tory government in 1963 (nothing has changed since) sought to frame Mandy Rice-Davies in order to ‘get’ Stephen Ward because he was about to expose Profumo for lying to Parliament about his affair with Christine Keeler. The Establishment cranked into action. A corrupt Scotland Yard officer had Rice-Davies arrested for a non-existent theft of a rented TV, softened up in prison, and told she would only be released if she testified against Ward. She was subjected to the corrupt bullying of the police, the moralising cant of the prosecutor, and the deep bias of the Old Bailey judge.

King of Common Core Pearson Closes Charitable Foundation Amid Legal Troubles

Publishing giant Pearson Inc. is set to rake in billions of dollars in profits related to the implementation of the Common Core standards, but the corporation is now dealing with legal problems exposing some of its suspicious methods that have led to its status as the King of Common Core.

The Pearson Charitable Foundation states it is closing following “a decision by Pearson plc to integrate all of its corporate responsibility activities and functions into its business as a way to maximize social impact and to no longer fund the Foundation as the primary vehicle for its philanthropic and community activities.”

The truth is, however, that corporate Pearson is closing down its charitable foundation following problems with the law that have exposed some of its methods in acquiring business.

Immigration, open US borders: the secret reason

NAFTA. Obama, during his 2008 Presidential campaign, said he would take another look at that treaty. It needed to be reexamined.

Perhaps he did take a subsequent look, down to the left and far away, as he was flying toward Hawaii on one of his vacations.

NAFTA. From The Guardian, 4 Jan. 2014, “NAFTA: 20 years of regret for Mexico,” by Mark Weisbrot:

“The most basic measure of economic progress, especially for a developing country like Mexico, is the growth of income (or GDP) per person. Out of 20 Latin American countries…Mexico ranks 18, with growth of less than 1% annually since 1994 [when NAFTA went into effect].

Victim says witnessed three boys murdered by VIP paedophiles

Scotland Yard says it is investigating the murders of three boys by what is now known as a ‘VIP sex ring’ suspected to include several high-ranking military officials and politicians.

Detectives say they are looking into accounts of the murders as recited by an abuse victim whom they have described as ‘a credible source’.

According to a shocking account by the abuse victim, who is referred to as ‘Nick’, a Conservative MP had throttled a 12-year-old boy in a depraved sex party at a luxury town house in London sometime in the early 80s.

CLG Exclusive: CIA Torture Queen Bought $825K House While Torturing Her Way to the Top

The redacted (525 of 6,700 pages) C.I.A. torture report has revealed possible war crimes and violations of the Nuremberg ban on human experimentation by C.I.A. agents and U.S. military contractors. On December 19, 2014, journalists Glenn Greenwald and Peter Maass revealed the name of the C.I.A. senior officer at the center of the C.I.A.'s torture scandals: Alfreda Frances Bikowsky.

Now, CLG can report that Alfreda Bikowsky purchased (and likely still lives in) a well-appointed ranch house in Mclean, Virginia. Nestled in a wooded lot at 1437 Brookhaven Drive, the well-concealed house is a short 19-minute, 12-mile commute to the Central Intelligence Agency in Reston, Virginia. Formerly owned by Michael E. Geltner, the property was sold to Bikowsky for a mere $825,000 by realtor Michael Chang in April of 2012.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Bikowsky was a senior staff member at the Bin Laden Issue Station in January 2000.[14] She was the direct supervisor of Michael Anne Casey, a CIA staff operations officer who was assigned to track future 9/11 hijacker Khalid al-Mihdhar at an al-Qaeda operatives' meeting in Malaysia in early January 2000.[8] Casey blocked a draft cable written by Doug Miller, a FBI agent detailed to the Bin Laden Issue Station, to the FBI warning that al-Mihdhar had a multiple-entry visa for travel to the U.S.[15][16](p240) Mark Rossini, another FBI agent first assigned to the Bin Laden Issue Station in 1999,[16](p233) testifies that Casey also verbally ordered him to not share information with FBI headquarters about al-Mihdhar or Nawaf al-Hazmi, who was traveling with al-Mihdhar.[1][17] Rossini further states that Bikowsky told congressional investigators in 2002 that she hand-delivered al-Mihdhar's visa information to FBI headquarters. This was later proven false by FBI log books.[1] The CIA shared some details about al-Mihdhar with the FBI at that time, but not that he had a valid visa to enter the U.S.[16](pp244–7)

Interrogation of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed

Bikowsky has been identified as "the redheaded former Soviet analyst who had been in the Bin Laden Unit during Michael Scheuer's supervision"[7](p273) in Jane Mayer's book, The Dark Side.[8] After Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was captured in March 2003, Mayer writes of Bikowsky:

Despite the CIA's insistence on the professionalism of its interrogation program, according to two well-informed Agency sources, one particularly overzealous female officer had to be reprimanded for her role. After Mohammed was captured, the woman, who headed the Al Qaeda unit in the CTC, was so excited she flew at government expense to the black site where Mohammed was held so that she could personally watch him being waterboarded. ... Coworkers said she had no legitimate reason to be present during Mohammed's interrogation. She was not an interrogator. "She thought it would be cool to be in the room," a former colleague said.

Counsel confirms Hillary's 'fraudulent' Watergate brief

Details of Hillary Clinton’s firing from the House Judiciary Committee staff for unethical behavior as she helped prepare articles of impeachment against Richard Nixon have been confirmed by the panel’s chief Republican counsel.

Franklin Polk backed up major claims by Jerry Zeifman, the general counsel and chief of staff
of the House Judiciary Committee who supervised Clinton’s work on the Watergate investigation in 1974, reported columnist Dan Calabrese in a column republished by WND.

Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat, called Clinton a “liar” and “an unethical, dishonest lawyer.”

He contends Clinton was collaborating with allies of the Kennedys to block revelation of Kennedy-administration activities that made Watergate “look like a day at the beach.”

For Zemel and his faithfully Democratic congregation, that hope and anxiety has come to rest most squarely on Hillary Clinton. This has happened at the same time that Clinton has staked out a firmly hawkish, pro-Israel position on Gaza and Israeli security. In August, many liberals were discouraged after reading a Clinton interview with Jeffrey Goldberg of The Atlantic. In it, she struck a tone on Israel that was markedly more hard-line than that of the Obama administration, generally avoiding empathy with Palestinian losses and asserting, “If I were the prime minister of Israel, you’re damn right I would expect to have control over security” on the West Bank.

Big food corporations committing massive organic fraud - investigation

Expected to reach an estimated $35 billion in profits this year, the organic market has become attractive to food companies on all sides of the spectrum, opening up the door for potential abuses.

Under-the-table financial contributions to politicians in Washington have allowed Big Food companies to hijack the organic industry by selling products blatantly in violation of strict organic standards set by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).

The USDA fails to prosecute violators due to giant corporations' lobbyists pressuring the agency to "favor their preferred industrial model of food production," according to Mark Kastel, the Senior Farm Policy Analyst at The Cornucopia Institute.

In developing pesticide resistant Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs,) these multi-national companies create zero local food sending profits off island, while exposing our communities to obscene amounts of restricted and general use pesticides up to ten times the national average. We already have two pesticide linked birth defects doctors estimate at ten times the national average in communities near GE test fields.

Dodd-Frank Budget Fight Proves Democrats Are a Bunch of Stuffed Suits

The dominant media narrative this past week has been that Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, firmly saddled in her high horse, is trying to hold up the passage of the budget over a trifle. In reality, the so-called "Citigroup" provision to kill a rule designed to prevent future bailouts (so named because it was allegedly written by Citigroup lobbyists) is potentially quite an evil and destructive little thing. But the nitpicking counter-spin is already coming hot and heavy.

How Congress Secretly Just Legitimized Questionable NSA Mass Surveillance Tool

We recently noted that, despite it passing overwhelmingly, Congress quietly deleted a key bit of NSA reform that would have blocked the agency from using backdoors for surveillance. But this week something even more nefarious happened, and it likely would have gone almost entirely unnoticed if Rep. Justin Amash's staffers hadn't caught the details of a new provision quietly slipped into the Intelligence Authorization Act, which effectively "legitimized" the way the NSA conducts most of its mass surveillance.

Is Obama Blackmailing Boehner? -Drudge Tweets: Spending Bill Passed Because NSA Has ‘Dirt’ on Speaker

He drinks a bit. That is well-chronicled.

The tabloids have splashed headlines about torrid affairs, including one with a lobbyist.

And, of course, he cries in public.

But is there more to the personal story of House Speaker John Boehner that would explain his funding of Obamacare and the president’s executive action providing amnesty for millions of illegal aliens in his budget accommodation with Democrats?

Enter the ubiquitous Matt Drudge who tweeted Friday: “Obama got EVERYTHING. NSA dirt on Boehner must be incredible. Chicago wins.”

“Net Neutrality”: The Citizens of the Internet Can Defeat the Telecom Mafia

In a claim that must have people laughing out loud, the telecom and broadband providers are fighting net neutrality by claiming that they will raise the rates of consumers! It is hard to believe that even telecom lobbyists, well-paid to mislead Congress and regulators, could make this claim without smirking as cable bills have been rising at four times the rate of inflation without net neutrality.

Congress approves plan to allow pension cuts

More than a million retired and current truck drivers, construction workers and other union workers could see their pension benefits cut now that Congress passed a proposal aimed at shoring up some of the nation's biggest pensions.

Tacked on as an amendment to the government's $1.1 trillion spending bill, the proposal was approved by the Senate late Saturday night.

While those sponsoring the pension proposal say it is "the only available option" to save failing multiemployer pension plans, other groups -- like the AARP and the Pension Rights Center -- are crying foul.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is another option to cutting pensions. Take those Wall Street bankers whose 2008 mortgage-backed securities fraud wrecked the pension funds in the first place and make them cover the shortfall to protect the pensioners!

Betrayal? Majority of GOP Senators oppose calling Obama amnesty unconstitutional

While the Republicans are getting ready to take control of the of the U.S. Senate in just a few weeks, Americans witnessed a preview on Saturday of what can be expected in 2015 from a GOP majority in both houses of the U.S. Congress. When Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, raised a point of order saying that President Barack Obama's immigration reform by fiat is unconstitutional, during the heated debate over the $1.1 trillion spending bill, he only received support from 22 senators.

The vast majority of the U.S. Senate openly disagreed with Sen. Cruz’s attempt to enter opposition to President Obama’s executive order on immigration, on the grounds it is unconstitutional, in the omnibus spending bill for 2015.
