US Preparing Coup to Prevent Greece from Falling Under Russian Influence

The United States and Germany are prepared to engineer a coup in Greece to keep the country operating as a strategic asset on NATO’s vulnerable southeast European flank.

“A putsch in Athens to save allied Greece from enemy Russia is in preparation by the US and Germany, with backing from the non-taxpayers of Greece – the Greek oligarchs, Anglo-Greek shipowners, and the Greek Church,” writes John Helmer, the longest continuously serving foreign correspondent in Russia not connected to the corporate media.

The primary tip-off something is brewing can be detected by the presence of Victoria Nuland, assistant secretary of state for European and Eurasian affairs, in Athens in March.

California Sheriff Responds to Federal Overreach: Strips US Forest Service of Power of Enforcement in His County

There are many constitutional sheriffs in America, those that stand for the rights of the people and defend those rights, even when it means that are facing a behemoth federal government hell bent on infringing those rights. One such sheriff is Sheriff John D’Agostini of El Dorado County, California. Sheriff D’Agostini has had enough of the US Forest Service and has decided to strip them of any “perceived authority” they have of enforcing state law within the county.

Argentina Rewards Programmer Who Exposed E-Voting Vulnerabilities With A Complimentary Home Police Raid

An Argentinian programmer who was trying to do a good thing in exposing severe vulnerabilities in the country's e-voting system was rewarded for his actions -- with a police raid on his home. According to Argentinian news outlet La Nación, Joaquín Sorianello informed MSA, the company than makes the Vot.ar e-voting system, that the SSL certificates used by the system to encrypt transmissions between the voting stations and the central election office could be easily downloaded, allowing for potential voting fraud (or just a good old-fashioned DDOS attack).

Social Security Declares 9,000 Americans Dead Each Year Who Aren’t

Can you imagine what would happen if you were at the grocery store checkout and your credit card was flagged for fraud?

Not only could you not buy food for you and yours, you’d then have to go down to your bank or call to get things straightened out. Only, what would you do if your bank told you there was nothing anyone could do because the government had officially declared you dead to the system?

Apparently this happens to around 9,000 Americans every year, and it completely wrecks their lives (no pun intended).

Corporate Capitalism [i.e. Fascism] Is the Foundation of Police Brutality and the Prison State

Our national conversation on race and crime is based on a fiction. It is the fiction that the organs of internal security, especially the judiciary and the police, can be adjusted, modernized or professionalized to make possible a post-racial America. We discuss issues of race while ignoring the economic, bureaucratic and political systems of exploitation—all of it legal and built into the ruling apparatus—that are the true engines of racism and white supremacy. No discussion of race is possible without a discussion of capitalism and class. And until that discussion takes place, despite all the proposed reforms to the criminal justice system, the state will continue to murder and imprison poor people of color with impunity.

OREGON HAS BEGUN USING A PAY BY THE MILE SURVEILLANCE PROGRAM CALLED "OREGO"

OReGO volunteers will pay a road usage charge for the amount of miles they drive, instead of the fuel tax.
The OReGO road usage charge is set at 1.5 cents per mile.
Volunteers will get a credit on their bill to offset the fuel tax they pay at the pump.
Volunteers will have their choice of secure mileage reporting options offered by OReGO’s private-sector partners.
Volunteers’ personal information will be kept secure and private.

What is OReGO? It's a TRACKING device!

Excerpt from Azuga's website:

"Our software and hardware products are designed to collect data from vehicles and we translate that into useful information to increase driver safety and awareness."

Quebec Is Getting Ready to Block Websites It Doesn't Like

Since the announcement in April, there has been surprisingly little public commentary about the Quebec plan. Quebec-based Internet providers may have privately raised concerns, but consumer groups have remained largely silent. That needs to change, since Quebec's plan to block access to gambling sites could easily expand to other areas.

Once blocking Internet content is established, it is easy to envision governments moving down a slippery slope, requiring the blocking of sites that are alleged to infringe copyright or blocking e-commerce sites that are not bilingual or do not pay provincial taxes. If that happened, the open Internet in Canada would be placed at risk of unprecedented government intervention into how Internet providers manage their networks and what sites Canadians are able to access.

Terminally ill benefit claimants asked when they expect to die, MP says

Terminally ill welfare claimants are being asked by benefit assessors when precisely they are expected to die, according to evidence seen by Frank Field, the newly elected chairman of the work and pensions select committee.

Field has written to the work and pensions secretary, Iain Duncan Smith, asking for an explanation. He told the Guardian: “There is absolutely no need for this level of intrusive and painful questioning by DWP officials. If I have had two such cases in my constituency in recent weeks; I dread to think how often this is happening around the country.”

GOLDMAN SACHS-SUPPORTED SOLAR COMPANY USES PRISON LABOR TO MAKE PANELS

A leading maker of solar panels in the United States backed by Goldman Sachs has been using prison labor to help keep its production costs down. Suniva Inc., based in Georgia, contracts with UNICOR, the name of the 80-year-old Federal Prison Industries, so inmates can assist with the assembly of solar panels. Company officials told Reuters that prison labor accounts for only a small portion of its manufacturing operations, less than 10%. They say Suniva factories in Georgia and Michigan employing 350 people produce most of the panels. Several hundred inmates make solar panels at prisons in Sheridan, Oregon and Otisville, New York, reported the news organization.

Obama Admin Changes Federal Aviation Administration Because Too Many White Males Were Passing Their Air Traffic Controller Classes

The Obama administration has abandoned the old system for getting qualified air-traffic controller applicants because too many of them were white males, and replaced it with a new system that asks applicants how many different sports they played when they were in high school.

The Federal Aviation Administration has stopped giving preferential treatment to air-traffic controller applicants who had passed classes from the 36 FAA-approved college aviation programs across the U.S., because too many of the people who passed these classes were white males.

At the same time, the FAA also stopped giving preference to applicants who were military veterans with aviation experience.

Under the new system, applicants were asked how many different high school sports they had participated in.

It’s Here: Oregon First State to Launch “Pay-by-the-Mile” Driving Track and Tax Scheme

The freedom of driving is about to get a lot less free in more ways than one.

“Rare American” David Hastings, Oregon hybrid car owner told Fox News, “I’m a statist who is happy to blindly contribute to the total tyranny that has almost completely surrounding us all and I see no potential downsides to a technological control grid where the government tracks my every move—”

No wait, sorry, it was, “I’ve been free-loading on the highways for 20 years driving electric cars or hybrid cars, getting at least 40 miles to the gallon. So I haven’t been paying my share.”

Mr. Hastings apparently cannot wait to pay more taxes to drive on state roads while being tracked by the government as he drives on those roads. In fact, he has volunteered for this in a state transportation taxing scheme that will eventually be mandatory not just in all of Oregon, but likely the entire country.

Obama Says Freedom Paid for by Members of Military

President Barack Obama thanked members of the military at home and abroad, saying the nation couldn't enjoy the "incredible blessings" in the "greatest country on earth" without their sacrifices and the sacrifices of their families.

"Freedom is not free. It's paid by all the folks who are here today and all the folks who are around the world," Obama told members of the military and military families at an Independence Day celebration on the South Lawn of the White House, after a performance by Bruno Mars.

Obama especially thanked service members who couldn't be with their families because they are stationed overseas. "We want to especially remember them," Obama said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This statement is disingenuous in the extreme.

What true "freedoms" is this President talking about, after the passage of the Homeland Security Act, the Patriot Act, and the NDAA, under which the President, at his command, can have any American arrested and held indefinitely without due process?!?

What "freedoms" can we be certain we have, with 24/7 physical, computer and phone surveillance?!?

What "freedoms" do we have with only two parties to chose from, come Presidential election day, and both presidential candidates have been vetted by the corporations which own them, and those corporations know the candidates THEY have chosen for us to vote on, will deliver?

This a government of the corporations, by the corporations, and for the corporations, not of the people, by the people, and for the people.

And let me make one thing clear: I have the utmost respect for our American military; it is the civilian leadership which puts them into harm's way where there are other ways to resolve a geopolitical issue, that makes me crazy.

And these endless wars and occupations of foreign countries?!? this is not about "protecting the American people", but adding value to the bottom line of numerous American corporations (which own the Presidency and Congress), and protecting what is left of the value of US dollar as the world's reserve currency.

The defense industrial companies and banks make a financial killing during wartime, which is why they love war so much.

And if it is your kid who gets killed or maimed for life...in the eyes of corporate and banking executives, they were just collateral damage and expendable anyway.

CHICAGO TO TAX NETFLIX AND OTHER ONLINE MOVIES AND MUSIC TO HELP COVER GROWING DEFICIT CREATED BY FAILED POLICIES

Politicians get elected by making expensive, grandiose promises that are virtually impossible to fund. The voters, excited by the politicians promises, elect said politician, who proceeds to gleefully waste the money of the taxpayers on frivolous things. Then, when the inevitable budget shortfall rears its ugly head, they strong-arm the public into supporting tax increases by blaming the deficit on those who are principally opposed to tax increases and by threatening to cut funding for more popular public programs like education and the fire department. You can watch this cycle play out again and again. Maybe one day we’ll break it, but that day isn’t today.

NEW EVIDENCE LINKS FLUORIDE TO INCREASING CASES OF ADHD MORE WATER FLUORIDATION = MORE ADHD

The evidence from a new scientific research study shows that children who live in water districts where the water supply is systematically fluoridated suffer with ADHD at a significantly higher rate.

“A multivariate regression analysis showed that after socioeconomic status was controlled each 1 percent increase in artificial fluoridation prevalence in 1992 was associated with approximately 67,000 to 131,000 additional ADHD diagnoses from 2003 to 2011.” [1]

For those who are not initiated in the realm of medical statistics, the number of additional diagnoses cited above is extraordinary by any standard of measurement. This study conclusively demonstrates that fluoride exposure among children and adolescents has significant consequences, primarily because of their formative stage of growth and development.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported at consumerhealth.org:

THE ADDITION OF FLUORIDE, A POTENTIALLY TOXIC SUBSTANCE, TO THE PUBLIC WATER SUPPLY IS COMPULSORY MASS MEDICATION. IT VIOLATES ALL ETHICAL PRINCIPLES. Many of the speakers at the Total Health 81 conference referred to the problem we have with our fluoridated drinking water: DR. JAN DE VRIES, Dr. H.Med., Ph.D., D.Ac., D.O., N.D. "I was very shocked that you poor people in Toronto have to drink this water. We have had a tremendous fight in Holland, which we won. This fluoride water is a chemical soft-working tranquilizer. Hitler put fluoride in the water to keep his prisoners quiet, and the same thing happens in other parts of the world. If I put a homeopathic remedy in this water, the remedy is destroyed. If you can work at getting this out of your water in any way at all, I would be very happy." DR. WILLIAM ELLIS, D.O. "The environmental protective agency in the United States has shown that the water in the 90 largest cities in the United States' all cause cancer. It's been proven in U.S. federal court that fluoridation of the inorganic form, which is the end product of aluminum manufacturing, is a cancer causative agent." DR. WILLIAM MORRIS, D.C., N.D. "Fluoride hardens the arteries and it does a lot more damage. It's toxic, but it happens to be a waste product of a very influential type of industry. We don't need the fluoride in our water. It's an infringement on our freedom. That's what Consumer Health is all about. We must make our rights known, and we must fight for it. Air and water are our first two needs, and they are being politically polluted. I think you should get behind Consumer Health and let's put some pressure and lobby to get better air and water." DISEASES CONNECTED WITH FLUORIDE Diseases connected with fluoride ingestion are cancer (of the mouth, esophagus, stomach, large intestine, rectum, kidney, bladder, urinary organs, breast, ovary), goiter, mongolism, kidney disease & osteoporosis. Additional problems are caused by fluoride in anaesthetics, gases and aerosol propellants. Symptoms can appear as long as 20 to 30 years later, as fluoride is so very prone to accumulate, not only in the bones and teeth, but also in the soft tissues of the body. Physiologically, the fluoride ion is an avid bone seeker and a potent enzyme inhibitor according to Dr. Albert Burgstahler, University of Kansas. He states that fluoride depresses growth rate of human cells, causes dermatitis, affects thyroid and heart function, circulation and reproduction, is more potent than cyanide as an inhibitor of respiration, disturbs hormonal balance, and increases the incidence of mongolism by 15%. Upon its accumulation in tissues, fluoride may incorporate itself into naturally occurring compounds to form, for example, fluorouracil, capable of producing cancer or giving rise to deformed babies. Symptoms associated with low-grade fluoride poisoning include excessive thirst, headaches, blurred vision, arthritis, gastrointestinal disturbances and excess urination. These will usually disappear if fluoridated water is replaced by distilled or spring water with a low fluoride level. CANCER AND FLUORIDATION In 1971, Dr. Dean Burke, Ph.D., began a study of the effects of fluoridation in drinking water in the United States. Dr. Burke was for 35 years, head of the cytochemistry section, and was co-founder of the National Cancer Institute, U.S.A. He has received many awards for cancer research and biochemistry, including the Domagh Prize, 1965, for cancer research. He has been involved in cancer research for 50 years. Results of his studies show that a large increase in human cancer mortality in the U.S. is associated with public water fluoridation. "One-tenth of the 350,000 cancer deaths per year in the U.S. are linked with artificial public water fluoridation." (See graph on last page) "We took the ten largest cities that had been fluoridated and compared them with the ten largest cities that had not been fluoridated. The fluoridation didn't start until 1952 to 1956, and has been continued ever since in the fluoridated group. Between 1940 and 1952 these two groups were identical, could not be distinguished on this curve. But from 1952 on, the curves have been continually widening to the point that there's now a difference of approximately 35,000 a year. There's no question about the data or our particular arrangement of it. The data is from government sources, which any high school student can look up and confirm. Nearly all of the fluoridation-linked cancer deaths are found to begin at the age of about 45 and then steadily increase with age. This situation is sharply different from the increased cancer deaths resulting from cigarette smoking, asbestos or hormones given to expectant mothers. Here a lag of 15 to 30 years is common. Increased death rates due to fluoridated water commence within a few years after initiation of fluoridation with marked continued increase thereafter."

Greece: People Repudiate the 1%-ers

The people of Greece have rejected austerity with an emphatic “No” in a referendum. The corporate media reacted predictably. Reuters depicted Greeks as defying Europe.

The language in the Reuters piece was palpably biased. It portrayed Greeks as having “overwhelmingly rejected conditions of a rescue package” [italics added] put together by “creditors” and “lenders.”

Greece’s fight is for democracy in Europe. That’s why we must support it

Martin Schulz, the European parliament’s president and a so-called social democrat, whose attitude towards democracy can be generously described as ambiguous, called for the removal of Greece’s elected government in favour of a technocratic government.

It wasn’t bluster. That’s what the EU and the markets previously pulled off in Greece and, yes, in Italy: however much justifiable distaste exists for Silvio Berlusconi, it should have been his own people who removed him. In Greece itself, the oligarch-owned “free media” acted as a political machine (sound familiar?), pumping out relentless propaganda in favour of capitulating to the creditors’ demands. An alliance between Greece’s economic elite and the EU great powers told the Greek people: however tough your lives have been in the last few years, your world will cave in unless you acquiesce. And still the Greek people voted no – not narrowly, but overwhelmingly.

The establishment media has hidden from view the facts behind the debt and has sided with the banks in declaring the population of Greece deserves austerity and its attendant poverty and misery because of the Greek government’s intransigence and refusal to accept the harsh conditions of the Troika, consisting of the IMF, European Commission and European Central Bank.

Left unsaid is the fact a large portion of the debt totaling about €245 billion was fraudulently dumped on the country in the course of huge bank bailouts in 2010 and 2012.

Euclid Tsakalotos to be appointed new Greek finance minister - media

Euclid Tsakalotos set to be appointed the new Greek finance minister after Yanis Varoufakis resigned, Greek Skai TV reports. Tsakalotos was previously the deputy foreign minister responsible for international economic relations.

Varoufakis leaving the job, and a more composed Tsakalatos taking cover, could mark a thaw in the frosty negotiations between Greece and its creditors. On the sidelines of the talks the former finance minister was often referred to as ‘impossible’ do deal with.

The bin Laden death mythology

The White House’s story of how US special forces hunted down and assassinated arch terrorist Osama bin Laden in his secret lair in Pakistan is unraveling.

The official narrative of the bin Laden raid is that for over a decade, US intelligence hunted for the terror chief until a surveillance/torture-enabled breakthrough tracked him to a secret compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. On 1st May 2011, US Navy Seals entered the compound and assassinated him in a furious firefight.

The operation demonstrated how far the US military intelligence community had come since the days of 9/11, proving how its disparate agencies had now developed a tremendous capacity to share and process often obscure intelligence data, to guide precision covert counter-terror missions.

After killing bin Laden, the al-Qaeda leader was buried at sea. When the raid was officially announced, Pakistan, a key US ally in the fight against al-Qaeda, was incensed at the US operation on its own soil.

Every single mainstream media has the following narrative for the economic crisis in Greece: the government spent too much money and went broke; the generous banks gave them money, but Greece still can’t pay the bills because it mismanaged the money that was given. It sounds quite reasonable, right?

Except that it is a big fat lie … not only about Greece, but about other European countries such as Spain, Portugal, Italy and Ireland who are all experiencing various degrees of austerity. It was also the same big, fat lie that was used by banks and corporations to exploit many Latin American, Asian and African countries for many decades.

Hillary Clinton Campaign Ropes Reporters Behind Line At Parade

Clinton marched in a Fourth of July parade in Gorham, New Hampshire, trailed by a band of supporters waving signs and separated by a long rope from the pack of journalists that followed.

"I'll tell you what — we need to get a Democratic president," Clinton told one woman along the parade route, who asked about the health care overhaul. "I'm going to not only defend it, I'm going to make it even better."

One man who carried a sign that read, "Benghazi" also followed the candidate. Alluding to her time representing New York in the Senate, he screamed repeatedly, "Carpetbagger!"

Another man on the route yelled, "What about Benghazi? What about the emails?"

Clinton smiled broadly, shaking hands and stopping for quick photos. At one point, she posed for a photo with two New Hampshire beauty pageant contestants, who playfully flexed their biceps.

As she recently testified to the Michigan House of Representatives, her house was raided in 2014 while her 56-year old mother was taking care of her children. Everything from food, electronics, and vehicles to birth certificates, cash, and social security, insurance and public assistance cards was taken and has yet to be returned.

The Other Contagion: What If Greece Thrived After Euro Exit?

From an economic perspective, one of the major contagion threats from a Greek exit would be if Greece left and its economy quickly started to grow strongly,” said Ben May of Oxford Economics.

“Few forces are more clearly demonstrated in economic history than the boost to spending and growth from a large and sustained real depreciation,” said Gagnon.

Hillary Clinton Bombshell: Documents Prove She is Guilty of Multiple Felonies

I am convinced as are others who have looked at this -- and FOX aired this in a special Saturday night and several times over the weekend -- that a conspiracy existed between the president, and Mrs. Clinton, and Congressional leaders from both parties in both Houses others in the State Department, the Treasury Department and the Justice Department to get arms shipped to rebels in Syria and in Libya. And some of those rebels are members of organizations that are on the terror list and providing them with material assistance is a felony. So the arms dealers applied for and received permission from State and Treasury lawfully to sell arms to the government of Qatar and they lawfully did so. Qatar then sold, delivered, bartered or gave these arms to the terrorist organizations with the knowledge and consent of Hillary Rodham Clinton when she was Secretary of State.

New Reporting: US Spied on German Media

While previous revelations showed that German officials have been the target of U.S. government spying, new reporting indicates that German press was targeted as well.

Both CNN and The Intercept reported Friday on incidents that took place in the summer of 2011 involving the CIA station chief in Berlin, who also represented the NSA at the U.S. Embassy; a top German government intelligence official, Günter Heiss; another senior intelligence official, Hans Josef Vorbeck; and the German news magazine Der Spiegel.

The publications' new stories detail an incident Heiss confirmed in testimony to the German parliament on Thursday.

Greece – Risk of False-flagging Greece into Submission and Chaos?

As we move closer to the 5 July referendum, it becomes clearer every day – Brussels, Washington and Berlin are waging an open “class war” against Greece, because the Greek people, the citizens of a sovereign country – the first democracy in Europe, the country that gave Europe her name – these people have had the audacity to democratically elect a socialist government. Now they have to suffer. They do not conform to the self-imposed rules of the neoliberal empire of unrestricted globalized privatization of public services and public properties from which the elite is maximizing profits – for themselves, of course – it is outright theft of public property.

OIL COMPANY CHEMICALLY LADEN FRACKING WATER USED ON YOUR CALIFORNIA VEGGIES...

Abby Auffant, spokeswoman for oil giant Chevron, explained that crude comes out of the ground mixed with water, from which it must be separated.

Separating the water from the crude is a process that actually benefits oil firms, according to Stano.

"It's hard for the oil industry to get rid of, so it's a win-win for the oil companies" when they are able to sell the water, she said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That may be one reason cancer rates are increasing in California as the process by which oil is separated from water is to create clean oil, not necessarily clean water, and exposure to petroleum compounds is a known cause of cancer.

The other day we ran a story about rampant food fraud enabled by the fact that the FDA only inspects 1% of all food imports.

So how does government react to foreign food imports that contain dangerous chemicals, or California produce soaked with oil well runoff? We are already seeing growing efforts to ban labels on food identifying their place of origin, so that consumers cannot avoid foods from known problem sources! After all, profits are far more important than people, and if you get sick, that stimulates the economy by forcing you to go to the hospital!

Jade Helm – a Slippery Slope

Guest author Kenneth Anton: author of Popsicle Man and Cancer Vortex

It is stated by the government that “Jade Helm” is just a ‘Military Training Exercise’ taking place in 7 southwest states (possibly more) for just 2 months from 7/15/15 to 9/15/15.

But many skeptics, including myself, see this incursion by the military into domestic affairs as a prelude to martial law across the whole United States.

Why should we listen to the skeptics? Based on recent past experience the Ruling Elite have committed major false flag operations while training exercises were conducted at the same time as cover. So be forewarned that another ‘Military Training Exercise’ could precede a major false flag or terrorist event.

Examples of such training exercises:

Today, Wikileaks released a second batch of the most updated draft texts on the proposed TISA, along with substantive analysis, on each of four massive services sectors: Financial Services, Telecommunications Services, Electronic Commerce, and Maritime Transport. This follows on their release yesterday of cross-cutting annexes on Domestic Regulation, the "Movement of Natural Persons," Transparency, and Government Procurement, and the Agenda for next week's negotiations, along with what Wikileaks called the journalistic holy grail: the Core Text of the proposed agreement. The negotiating texts are supposed to remain secret for five years after the deal is finalized or abandoned.

NEW 'HOSTILE VEHICLE' POLICE TERM FOR RECORDING OR TALKING BACK WILL BRING DHS AND K9'S

The Rhode Island resident was in Philadelphia for the International Society for Technology in Education conference, waiting for a friend in her vehicle. A police officer noticed that she was parked in the wrong direction at the Amtrak 30th St. drop off.

Not satisfied with simply writing a ticket, the cop became verbally abusive. Perhaps he was agitated at being filmed, or enraged at the audacity of a person who dared to say the street signage was poor.

The cop had enough and radioed in a “hostile vehicle” call, which prompted eight other officers, a K-9 unit and Homeland Security to arrive.

What the Philly cop really broadcast is he encountered terrorists and possible explosives inside a car!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable!!

The only thing this person needed was an understanding of the fact that she was parked in the wrong direction, and that could have been given gently enough.

But to lie to your precinct about what had really gone on here... totally unforgivable.

Earlier this month, LifeNews.com reported on a high school in Seattle, Washington that is now implanting intrauterine devices (IUD), as well as other forms of birth control and doing so without parental knowledge or permission.

The IUD is known as a long acting reversible contraception, and may even act as an abortifacient. So, a young teen in Seattle can’t get a coke at her high school, but she can have a device implanted into her uterus, which can unknowingly kill her unborn child immediately after conception.

Truth is a Crime Against The State — Paul Craig Roberts

The entire Western edifice rests on lies. There is no other foundation. Just lies.

This makes truth an enemy. Enemies have to be suppressed, and thus truth has to be suppressed.

Truth comes from foreign news sources, such as RT, and from Internet sites, such as this one.

Thus, Washington and its vassals are busy at work closing down independent media.

Washington and its vassals have redefined propaganda. Truth is propaganda if it is told by countries, such as Russia and China, that have independent foreign policies.

Propaganda is truth if told by Washington and its puppets, such as the EU Observer.

POLITICO has obtained a draft copy of TPP’s intellectual property chapter as it stood on May 11, at the start of the latest negotiating round in Guam. While U.S. trade officials would not confirm the authenticity of the document, they downplayed its importance, emphasizing that the terms of the deal are likely to change significantly as the talks enter their final stages. Those terms are still secret, but the public will get to see them once the twelve TPP nations reach a final agreement and President Obama seeks congressional approval.

US spying went beyond Merkel, ministers targeted: report

New documents released by WikiLeaks show that the United States did not just tap German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s phone but also eavesdropped on several ministers, the German daily Sueddeutsche Zeitung reported on Wednesday.

German-US relations were badly strained after fugitive US intelligence contractor Edward Snowden in 2013 revealed widespread US foreign surveillance, although a probe into the alleged tapping of Merkel’s mobile phone was dropped last month over a lack of evidence.

But according to the latest revelations the US National Security Agency (NSA) did not limit its snooping activities to Merkel, and showed particular interest in the activities of the ministries of finance, economy and agriculture, Sueddeutsche Zeitung wrote.

German media: Obama, NSA tactics a reminder of Nazi's Gestapo in Europe

The revelation of this latest information on spying has created a significant political uprising in Germany, a nation that has been historically victimized by spies in its midst. In the past, the German people had more than their share of experience with espionage due to the tactics of Adolph Hitler's Gestapo and then the communist-government's Stasi in East Germany. Experts believe this history of domestic spying has created a fear of any sort of spying or eavesdropping which explains the reaction when one of Chancellor Merkel's cell phones was allegedly bugged by the Obama administration.

COP WHO TORTURED HANDCUFFED MAN HAD PRIOR RECORD OF ATTACKING PEOPLE

In 2009 Colorado police officer Mark Magness broke an innocent man's arm during an illegal fireworks investigation. Magness pleaded guilty but the police department didn't fire him. Now that a video has been released that shows officer Magness horrifically torturing a handcuffed man who was also tied to a chair in December 2014, the department might be wondering if they made the wrong decision to keep Magness on the force.

The man, who is now fairly agitated after being assaulted while in handcuffs is thrown into the cell. He then makes a mistake and raises his open hand toward Magness.

At this point, Magness jumps on the man and begins pummeled him. Magness, knowing that his body camera is recording this abuse, continues to yell out, “Stop Resisting!” throughout the abuse in an attempt to justify his torturous ways.
It gets worse from there.

SB277 signed into law by Governor, California to deny vaccine exemptions for school children

The vaccine discussion issue just got more complicated as California governor Jerry Brown signed SB 277. Just one day after lawmakers sent him the bill, Brown signed it into law, eliminating all personal and religious exemptions for vaccines for California's schoolchildren.

It defies common sense. It negates basic human rights. But Governor Brown has chosen to take away the right to exempt children from vaccinations for religious and personal (philosophical ) reasons for anyone who wants their child to attend school.

U.S. Congress considers mandating vaccinations for all school children

Your God-given right as a parent to choose the best and safest medical interventions for your children is under attack by a Democratic congresswoman from Florida. Representative Frederica S. Wilson from Florida's 24th District (North Miami) recently introduced the "Vaccinate All Children Act of 2015," which in a nutshell would force vaccinations on all children as a requirement to attend public school.

No longer would parents have the freedom to opt out of this form of medical assault using personal or philosophical exemptions. States would be required under Rep. Wilson's bill to basically scrap these exemptions in order to continue receiving federal funding, which amounts to the same kind of tyranny our nation's founders sacrificed their lives to escape.

Kimberly Garrison has been struggling with her student loans for a full decade.

When Garrison received an inheritance after the death of her grandmother, she put the full $10,000 toward her loan debt, she says, in hopes of getting it under control.

Still, the $35,168 she borrowed from 2003 to 2005 to attend the Miami campus of ITT Tech has grown to $62,030.

The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court ruled late Monday that the National Security Agency may temporarily resume its once-secret program that systematically collects records of Americans’ domestic phone calls in bulk.

But the American Civil Liberties Union said Tuesday that it would ask the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit, which had ruled that the surveillance program was illegal, to issue an injunction to halt the program, setting up a potential conflict between the two courts.

The program lapsed on June 1, when a law on which it was based, Section 215 of the USA Patriot Act, expired. Congress revived that provision on June 2 with a bill called the USA Freedom Act, which said the provision could not be used for bulk collection after six months.

Is the TPP Okay With Slavery? Really?

So the fast track plan to pass the Trans-Pacific Partnership has run into a new wrinkle after an amendment passed in the Senate debate: slavery. Yes, really, slavery: the Senate voted for an amendment that would make it more difficult for countries that engage in slavery to be in the TPP, and the Obama administration objected.

SURVEY OF 382 U.S. LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES SHOWS FAR GREATER CONCERN ABOUT ANTI-GOVERNMENT EXTREMISTS THAN ABOUT ISLAMIC TERRORISTS

Ask a cop what kind of extremist they’re most concerned about and the answer is likely to be those opposed to the government, not Muslim terrorists.

A survey of 382 law enforcement agencies from around the United States asked officers to list the main violent extremist threat their agency faces.

Anti-government extremists were listed more than any other by far: 73.8%. Al Qaeda-inspired extremists came in a distant second, at 39.3%.

“Law enforcement agencies in the United States consider anti-government violent extremists, not radicalized Muslims, to be the most severe threat of political violence that they face,” the survey’s authors, Charles Kurzman and David Schanzer, wrote in their report (pdf).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How odd; are we about to criminalize anger at the brain-dead policies which leave this country worse off than it was before?

If someone is angry at governmental policies, does absolutely no violence, and shares their views with others in a lucid,logical way, does that make them an "anti-government extremist"?!?

I am a vocal government critic, who is both a Christian and a pacifist, who would never use, nor advocate, violence, ever.

But I have to wonder here: how soon will peaceful, logical criticism of government cause me to get "lumped in" with anti-government extremists?!?

When does logic become criminal?!?

This is a very critical question we all need to ask ourselves, as Americans, before we collectively start sliding down a very slippery slope.

And we have been on a very slippery slope, judicially, since 9/11, and have almost regressed to "Code Napoleon" law standards, where someone is immediately considered guilty until proven innocent, which absolutely throws the concept of "innocent until proven guilty" squarely on its head.

Rather than fix the root causes of anger against government, it appears that anger at government, in and of itself, is about to be criminalized, and labeled, and thoroughly medicated.

U.S. Congress considers mandating vaccinations for all school children

Your God-given right as a parent to choose the best and safest medical interventions for your children is under attack by a Democratic congresswoman from Florida. Representative Frederica S. Wilson from Florida's 24th District (North Miami) recently introduced the "Vaccinate All Children Act of 2015," which in a nutshell would force vaccinations on all children as a requirement to attend public school.

On Greece and Europe: What is Called “Negotiation” is a Demand for Total Surrender

What is called “negotiation” is in reality a demand for total surrender. The Troika’s demand is to force Syriza to go back on the campaign promises that it made to voters who replaced the old right-wing Pasok (“socialist”) and Conservative New Democracy coalition, or else simply apply the austerity program to which that coalition had agreed:cutbacks in pensions, deeper austerity, more privatization selloffs, and a tax shift off business onto labor. In short, economic suicide.

Obama Removes TPP’s Anti-Slavery Clause, Then Attacks Confederate Flag as “Symbol of Slavery”

Right before he publicly attacked the Confederate flag as a “symbol of slavery,” President Obama quietly removed an “anti-slavery” provision from the Trans-Pacific Partnership Trade Agreement.

South Shore libraries to observe Banned Books Week

Visitors to the Milton Public Library’s teen room and adult graphic novel sections will be greeted by a startling sight the next two weeks – Art Spiegelman’s “Maus,” “Batman” and other books wrapped in bright yellow caution tape.

The display is the centerpiece of the library’s observance of national “Banned Books Week,” which is sponsored annually by the American Library Association and 11 other groups.

South Shore patrons will see similar displays all next week, starting Sunday, at the Thomas Crane Library in Quincy, Thayer Library in Braintree, Scituate Public Library, Ventress Library in Marshfield and others. Some are already in place.

All the displays are aimed at calling attention to why popular and highly regarded books have drawn complaints from parents and groups over the years – and why it’s important to keep them on library shelves.

“It’s not the library’s place to ban books,” Milton teen librarian Amy Rosa said.

Obama Issues 19 Classified Directives Changing Laws Passed by Congress

Since being inaugurated in 2009, President Barack Obama has issued 30 Presidential Policy Directives (PPD), 19 of which he has ordered to be kept secret from Congres and the American people.

Barack Obama campaigned for president promising to usher in an era of transparency in government. That promise stands next to “if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor” in the Barack Obama Presidential Hall of Shame.

Ending the Ownership of Money

As is now common knowledge, some of the world’s most powerful countries are insolvent due to ever-increasing sovereign debt. At this point, the economies are being held together through only one factor: continued faith in the currency by the average citizen. As soon as that faith disappears, the economies will crash.

Not surprisingly, the leaders of these countries and their close associates (particularly the banks) are actively seeking means by which they can escape the effects of the crisis they have created and still retain some sort of control.

For some time, I’ve predicted that one way in which they will accomplish this will be the elimination of cash, that in order to prevent a run on the banks in which the average citizen simply removes his money from the system, such a removal would be made impossible by ending the existence of bank notes. It would be replaced with an electronic currency system, so that the only “cash” that exists is a credit in a bank account.

Greece Again Can Save The West — Paul Craig Roberts

Like Marathon, Thermopylae, Plateau and Mycale roughly 2,500 years ago, Western freedom again depends on Greece. Today Washington and its empire of European vassal states are playing the part of the Persian Empire, and belatedly the Greeks have formed a government, Syriza, that refuses to submit to the Washington Empire.

Few people understand that the fate of Western liberty, what remains of it, is at stake in the conflict, and, indeed, the fate of life on earth. Certainly the German government does not understand. Sigmar Gabriel, a German vice-chancellor, has declared the Greek government to be a threat to the European order. What he means by the “European order” is the right of the stronger countries to loot the weaker ones.

The “Greek crisis” is not about debt. Debt is the propaganda that the Empire is using to subdue sovereignty throughout the Western world.
