We saved Jews 3 times, Netanyahu should revise history lessons – Iranian FM

Iran has no intention of destroying Israel and has actually saved the Jews three times in history, but the current Israeli regime is a threat to Tehran, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has said.

“Israel threatens to use force against Iran almost on a daily basis… Of course, if they did use force against Iran, we would defend ourselves, as we have done with great sacrifice in the past. But we are not invading, we are not threatening anybody. We have not threatened anybody for 250 years,” the Iranian FM said.

“We never had the bomb. We will never have a bomb. We’re not looking to have a bomb. We do not believe a bomb is in our interest. Whereas [Netanyahu] does have a bomb. He has 200 nuclear weapons,” he said.

4 Ways The White House Has Gone Full Doublespeak on Fast Track and the TPP

Maira Sutton
Activist Post

In a blog post published this week, the White House flat out uses doublespeak to tout the benefits of the TPP, even going so far as to claim that without these new trade agreements, "there would be no rules protecting American invention, artistic creativity, and research". That is purely bogus, much like the other lies the White House has been recently saying about its trade policies. Let's look at the four main myths they have been saying to sell lawmakers and the public on Fast Track for the TPP...

US Takes New Accounting Extraordinary Measures To Avoid Debt Ceiling

The US Treasury Secretary, Jack Lew, announced the adoption of accounting “extraordinary measures” to prevent reached again the debt ceiling when the March 16 completed the extension granted in 2014 by Congress.

“Raising the debt ceiling does not authorize new spending commitments. It simply allows the government to pay for expenses that Congress has already approved, and thus protects the creditworthiness of the US,” Lew said in a letter to the president of the Chamber of Representatives, Republican John Boehner.

Washington Yanks British Bulldog into Line

The gross interference by Washington in Britain’s forthcoming election on the vital issue of budgetary priorities clearly demonstrates that British «democracy» is but an appendage to an American leash. And the leash is being yanked to pull the snarling bulldog into line.

In a brazen show of bringing-to-heel in their «special relationship», American political and Pentagon chiefs are openly rebuking the British government to maintain its huge military spend on the NATO alliance – to the possible detriment of already withering public services in austerity-clobbered Britain. The imposition by Washington raises serious questions about the nature of democracy in Britain – the self-proclaimed «Mother of all Parliaments».

Bibi Joffrey and the Flower of Zion

The walls are thick and strong beyond imagining, but the elders who sleep in the bowels of Zion know that this rumbling at their foundation marks well their inevitable fall.

The first great stone has hit the ramparts of Zion. The elders within the walls, down in the bowels of the fortress, have sat bolt upright, as they have felt the unmistakable rumbling vibration. Their eyes, which are usually narrow with the self-regard of the power of their own devious cunning, have suddenly gone wide with fear, as instantly they know that the inevitable has arrived upon them.

As another great stone finds the wall, and shakes the very air, these elders fly from their beds with great alarm.

DOJ Is Charging Senator Menendez with Corruption aka “What Happens When You Piss off Obama”

this is not exactly breaking news for anyone who knows anything about Senator Menendez, but that isn’t even the point. Who isn’t corrupt in Congress and D.C.? Could any of our elected federal officials really stack up to any other label than corrupt under a microscope? Can anyone find anything there that’s not corrupt by legal definition? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

Like Eric Holder and Obama aren't corrupt. Pot calling the kettle black much?

Well anyway, what ever-so-coincidental timing on the part of the DOJ… It would seem Menendez has really pissed in Obama’s cornflakes as of late, coming out on the democratic side of the aisle as a harsh critic of Obama’s upcoming Iran deal...

Hillary Clinton’s Question-Dodging Response to the Private Email Scandal

According to a Bloomberg Politics report by Jennifer Epstein, Clinton’s plan is to avoid any in-depth discussion of the scandal for the time being, and instead refer questions to State, and to a Tweet from Wednesday night, in which she said, "I want the public to see my email. I asked State to release them. They said they will review them for release as soon as possible."

The tweet itself was artfully disingenuous: Why run email through a privately controlled system except to hide your communications from the public? And while it’s true that the Department of State is now reviewing thousands of pages of her emails for possible public disclosure, the review only covers emails that Clinton aides hand-picked and turned over. She’s already edited the archive. She demonstrably does not want the public to see the rest.

Meanwhile, there are a lot of questions Clinton should be answering.

Examiner exclusive: Hillary Clinton’s cabal suspected of sorting Benghazi emails

While still serving as Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton's staff were involved in "hanky panky" as part of damage control for their boss prior to her appearance before lawmakers investigating the Benghazi terrorist attack that occurred on Sept. 11, 2012. They were instructed to set aside any documents that would hurt Clinton politically and not turn them over to the Accountability Review Board (ARB) that was investigating the alleged missteps by the Obama administration especially those by the State Department, according a report on Monday by former CBS News correspondent Sharyl Attkisson.

Constitution Check: Did the House act illegally in inviting Netanyahu?

“U.S. congressional leaders probably should have given this invitation more thought. Although not a violation of the letter of the Constitution, it certainly seems to violate the idea that the nation speaks with one voice on foreign policy and that foreign leaders cannot choose whether they prefer to deal with Congress or the president.”

– Robert Kagan, senior fellow at the Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C., in a column in the Washington Post on January 30, discussing House Speaker John Boehner’s invitation to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address a joint session of Congress on the issue of U.S.-Iran negotiations over nuclear weaponry. The speech will occur Tuesday morning.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Constitutional vesting of foreign policy in the Executive Branch is reinforced by the Logan Act, which John Boehner violated when he directly invited Netanyahu to address Congress.

Why Hillary Clinton's Homebrew Email Is a Political Nightmare

You've probably heard: Hillary Clinton used a private, personal email address for all of her official business as Secretary of State. She didn't even have a State Department email address. As a result, her email was far from secure — and that is a big problem, but it's not the only one.

The security issue is just one of many disconcerting things about Clinton's secretive email habits. Perhaps more importantly, it's politically problematic that Clinton kept all of her work emails off the books, on a private server. That means she blatantly violated President Obama's promise for better transparency in the government. (She's hardly the first Obama-appointed official to break this promise, but oh well.)

But transparency aside, the main problem is that Clinton seems to have done a pretty shitty job securing her private email server — and endangered national security as a result.

Rather than observing customary protocol—that is arranging the visit of a head of state with top officials in the country to be visited—Republican Speaker of the House, John Boehner informed the White House of the Netanyahu invitation just 10 minutes before it was announced to the public, on Jan. 21, the morning after the president’s State of the Union address.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Okay, it's been officially denied, so that means the WH did know! :)

Remember when Obama insisted he did not know about the IRS targeting his enemies until he heard it on the news? Then the IRS emails that would have either refuted or verified that claim suddenly disappeared?

And let us not forget that as the chief executive, it is Obama's job to KNOW what is going on with his subordinates! So if he is not criminally complicit, then he is admitting to being inept. Take your pick.

America Must Reject Netanyahu’s War Cry on Iran

He has no confidence that President Obama will negotiate an agreement that once and for all will end Iran’s alleged nuclear ambitions.

Is the Mysterious ‘Eric Hoteham’ Actually Longtime Clinton Aide Eric Hothem?

The customer listed in records registering the Internet address to the Chappaqua home was “Eric Hoteham.” The AP, however, was unable to identify an “Eric Hoteham,” stating that the “name does not appear in public records databases, campaign contribution records, or Internet background searches.”

But the name is similar to that of Eric Hothem, who worked as a staff assistant for Clinton during her time as First Lady.

Hothem was involved in multiple personal matters during his service to Clinton and played a role in the controversy surrounding the pardon given to former President Bill Clinton’s half-brother Roger Clinton.

A congressional investigation into Clinton’s clemency decisions found that as Roger Clinton refused to testify to the committee in March 2001, he received a $15,000 wire transfer from a Citibank account in the care of Hothem.

How Hillary Clinton Exposed Her Emails To Foreign Spies... In Order To Hide Them From The American Public

So the whole Hillary Clinton email story is getting worse and worse for Clinton. We already noted that there was no way she couldn't have known that she had to use government email systems for government work, as there was a big scandal from the previous administration using private emails and within the early Obama administration as well. This morning we discovered that Clinton also gave clintonemail.com email addresses to staffers, which undermines the argument made by Hillary's spokesperson that it was okay for her to use her own email address because any emails with staffers would still be archived by the State Department thanks to their use of state.gov emails. But that's clearly not the case when she's just emailing others with the private email addresses.

FLASHBACK - Congress’s Obamacare Waiver

On July 30, I predicted that, even though he had no authority to do so, President Obama would waive that provision at taxpayers’ expense.

It’s good to be king. The president’s supporters, like courtesans of old, are trying to quell a peasant uprising by denying there were any special favors. The denials ring hollow.

Hillary Clinton leaked intel to hurt Israeli war plans, says watchdog attorney

The media feeding frenzy over the alleged unlawful use by Hillary Clinton of a non-government email system is having an impact on other allegations against the presidential wannabe. On Tuesday, a former Department of Justice prosecuting attorney said that he believes then-Secretary of State Clinton -- probably using her unofficial and illegal email system -- was complicit in the leaking of classified intelligence regarding military operation plans formulated by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) to destroy Iran's nuclear weapons program.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Well, well, well! Hillary mishandling classified information and not just to get laid, like Patraeus. Of course, looking at the context of this incident, it is possible Hillary was acting under orders from Obama, but Obama will never own up to that, so Hillary gets to eat this one. But, Hillary is technically guilty of the same crimes Ed Snowden is accused of! If he can be charged under the Espionage Act, then so can Hillary!

BEX Alert - "Alan Dershowitz: Obama 'Obligated' to Answer Netanyahu's 'New' Proposal"

President Barack Obama "totally misled the American people" by saying Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, during his Tuesday address to a joint session of Congress, presented no new ideas about striking a deal with Iran over nuclear weapons, Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz said Wednesday on Newsmax TV's "America's Forum."

"The prime minister said, 'If the world leaders are not prepared to insist that Iran changes behavior before a deal is signed, at the very least, they should insist Iran changes behavior before a deal expires,'" said Dershowitz.

"His proposal, and it's a very sound one, is that the sunset provision doesn't kick in unless Iran does three things — it has to stop being the world's greatest exporter of terrorism, it has to stop bullying neighboring countries like Syria and Lebanon, and it has to stop calling for the destruction of Israel.

Well I found it incredibly sad yesterday watching our legislators in our own house of Congress give the foreign leader of a beggar nation (to the tune of $4 billion per annum) a standing ovation like he had just solved all of America’s problems. But the fact is Netanyahu came to give a speech that was in direct conflict with that of the American president.

Now I’m no fan of Obama but I hold deep respect for the scope of the position of President of the United States of America. And to have a nation that takes money from our tax payers only to turn around and use that money to buy off our tax payers’ representatives so they will pass foreign policy only concerned with Israel, gives me a rotting feeling in my stomach.

U.S. economist Lyndon LaRouche decried today the fraudulent effort to frame up Russian President Vladimir Putin for the murder of liberal Russian politician Boris Nemtsov on the night of Feb 27-28. In fact, LaRouche insisted that the Nemtsov murder was nothing but a provocation directed against Putin, as he had said from the first moment it became known. The evidence is conclusive, and the stakes are life or death: peace or war. Given these circumstances, Obama's endorsement of this frameup in a Reuters interview yesterday, merits his immediate removal from office as a last-ditch defense of the United States.

Affidavit: First IRS Tech to Inspect Lois Lerner Hard Drive Was Blind

IRS officials initially claimed Lerner’s hard drive was irreparably damaged before it was destroyed in 2011.

But last year, investigators with the House Ways and Means Committee interviewed IRS technical experts who said the hard drive was merely scratched and not irreparable, The Hill has reported.

"The Committee was told no data was recoverable and the physical drive was recycled and potentially shredded," then-Ways and Means Committee Chairman Rep. Dave Camp said just days after Manning’s July 18 affidavit was filed, according to the Daily Caller.

"To now learn that the hard drive was only scratched, yet the IRS refused to utilize outside experts to recover the data, raises more questions about potential criminal wrong doing at the IRS."

Netanyahu a 'Danger' to Israel, Say 200 Israeli Veterans

n an unprecedented move, 200 veterans of the Israeli security services accused Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday of being a “danger” to Israel.

The new group, called Commanders for Israel’s Security, warned that Netanyahu was doing irreparable harm to the country’s relationship with Washington, just two days before he is due to address the US Congress.

The Israeli prime minister is expected to use the speech to try to undermine negotiations currently taking place between major world powers and Iran. He has claimed that any agreement reached at the talks’ conclusion, later this month, will leave Iran a “nuclear threshold state” hellbent on destroying Israel.

Half a dozen former generals spoke out at a press conference in Tel Aviv on Sunday, urging Netanyahu to cancel the speech before ties with the US deteriorate even further.

Obama right to spurn Netanyahu

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu offered “nothing new” in his diatribe on Tuesday at his third appearance before a joint session of the US Congress, blasting ongoing negotiations in Europe between the so-called P5+1 (the US, Russia, Britain, France, China plus Germany) and Iran over the latter’s alleged nuclear ambitions.

This sharp evaluation was offered by the US President Barack Obama at a press meeting 10 minutes after Netanyahu finished with his loud outrage over the ongoing negotiations with Iran; although he did not offer any alternatives for dealing with Tehran. He, however, still received loud applause and a standing ovation at the Republican-dominated session.

Iran and the US have resumed nuclear talks despite Netanyahu's warnings

U.S. President Barack Obama responded within hours saying that Netanyahu had offered no "viable alternatives" to the current course of negotiations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It looks like the administration has dropped the ten year issue in light of the apparent backlash against Netanyahu's speech. Those members of Congress who boycotted the speech are looking really good now, and the GOP should realize that televised "blowjob" of Netanyahu (to use Jon Stewert's description) is going to work against them in 2016.

Azerbaijan should be very afraid of Nuland

The US’ Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs, Victoria Nuland, visited Baku on 16 February as part of her trip to the Caucasus, which also saw her paying stops in Georgia and Armenia. While Azerbaijan has had positive relations with the US since independence, they’ve lately been complicated by Washington’s ‘pro-democracy’ rhetoric and subversive actions in the country. Nuland’s visit, despite her warm words of friendship, must be look at with maximum suspicion, since it’s not known what larger ulterior motives she represents on behalf of the US government.

FLASHBACK - White House Lockdown: 2 Seperate Security Breaches, Arrests Within 24 Hours

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This double breach got very little attention, but occurred just before Obama reversed himself on Iran and demanded a total cessation of nuclear activity for ten years, essentially what Netanyahu demanded of Congress. I wonder in hindsight if this double-breech was a message sent to Obama that he can be gotten at if he doesn't toe a certain line!

Netanyahu's Arsenal of Nukes The Israeli Elephant in the US Congress by BARRY LANDO

snip: Although it has possessed nuclear weapons for more than half a century, Israel still refuses to own up to that fact, and the United States blandly continues to go along with that fiction. When asked in 2009 if he knew of any country in the Middle East with nuclear weapons, Barack Obama avoided the trap by saying only that he did not wish to “speculate”.

The question is, whether you support Netanyahu’s policies or not, how can the U.S. and Israel and their allies block attempt to block Iran from acquiring the bomb, while pretending that Israel doesn’t already have one? How do you justify such a flagrant double standard?

Report from protests against Netanyahu: 'Public opinion about Israel is changing irreversibly'

Outside, in the streets surrounding the U.S. Congress, a strong, spirited crowd of demonstrators denounced Benjamin Netanyahu for committing war crimes against the Palestinian people and for attempting to whip up a war fever against Iran. We were met by police lines and cops who grabbed and shoved people as they attempted to exercise their Constitutional right to protest at Congress.

Inside, from within the hallowed halls, Netanyahu was given a boisterous two-minute-long standing ovation by the millionaire politicians in Congress.

The irony of what happened today speaks volumes about the nature of democracy in this country.

Netanyahu Threatens War In Speech to Congress

This was a speech threatening war.

Realizing he has insufficient clout to stop the negotiations, Netanyahu demanded a back-up position: If not "no" deal, then we can have a better deal.

His vision of a "better" deal, however, is grounded in Iranian surrender. And since that is not going to happen, demanding it means abandoning diplomacy in favor of—yes, war.

Netanjahu stabs Obama in the back!!

Ernst and eloquent echo the sentences through the great hall in the US Congress: With a deep voice and well-chosen words, a statesman describes his urgent concerns. Again and again donate gathered to a joint session of both chambers of Congress MPs and senators standing applause - but this appearance of a political slap comes dangerously close.

Republican C.J.Pearson found out the price of his new found fame on Friday morning when a friend told him it had been deactivated for 'suspicious activity'.

Fearing his video, which was watched by more than 1.4 million people, may have been the cause, Pearson hit out at the social media giant, accusing them of quelling any dissent towards Obama.

The U.S. Constitution Actually Bans Hillary’s Foreign Government Payola

The Washington Post reported last week that the tax-exempt foundation run by Bill and Hillary Clinton accepted money from seven foreign governments while Hillary served as U.S. Secretary of State (it’s unclear how much foreign money the organization accepted while Hillary was a U.S. Senator). Super shady, right? It’s worse than that, though, because Article I, Section 9 of the U.S. Constitution actually bans foreign payola for U.S. officials.

The constitutional ban on foreign cash payments to U.S. officials is known as the Emoluments Clause and originated from Article VI of the Articles of Confederation. The purpose of the clause was to prevent foreign governments from buying influence in the U.S. by paying off U.S. government officials.

Obama wins back the right to indefinitely detain under NDAA

The Obama administration has won the latest battle in their fight to indefinitely detain US citizens and foreigners suspected of being affiliated with terrorists under the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012.

Congress granted the president the authority to arrest and hold individuals accused of terrorism without due process under the NDAA, but Mr. Obama said in an accompanying signing statement that he will not abuse these privileges to keep American citizens imprisoned indefinitely. These assurances, however, were not enough to keep a group of journalists and human rights activists from filing a federal lawsuit last year, which contested the constitutionality of Section 1021, the particular provision that provides for such broad power.

Senator Barrasso. President Obama's job is to support the people of the United States, not a foreign government. For that matter, so is yours. But if you really feel that your mission in life is to support Tel Aviv I invite you and all the other Israel-firsters in Congress to immediately board a plane and MOVE THERE PERMANENTLY!

The Next Empire

Throughout history, political, financial, and military leaders have sought to create empires. Westerners often think of ancient Rome as the first empire. Later, other empires formed for a time. Spain became an empire, courtesy of its Armada, its conquest of the New World, and the gold and silver extracted from the West. Great Britain owned the 19th century but lost its empire due largely to costly wars. The US took over in the 20th century and, like Rome, rose as a republic, with minimal central control, but is now crumbling under its own governmental weight.

Invariably, the last people to understand the collapse of an empire are those who live within it.

Report: Obama Threatened to Shoot Down IAF Iran Strike

The Bethlehem-based news agency Ma’an has cited a Kuwaiti newspaper report Saturday, that US President Barack Obama thwarted an Israeli military attack against Iran's nuclear facilities in 2014 by threatening to shoot down Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran.

Following Obama's threat, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was reportedly forced to abort the planned Iran attack.

According to Al-Jarida, the Netanyahu government took the decision to strike Iran some time in 2014 soon after Israel had discovered the United States and Iran had been involved in secret talks over Iran’s nuclear program and were about to sign an agreement in that regard behind Israel's back.

The report claimed that an unnamed Israeli minister who has good ties with the US administration revealed the attack plan to Secretary of State John Kerry, and that Obama then threatened to shoot down the Israeli jets before they could reach their targets in Iran.

Russian bloggers analyze Nemtsov's murder: "The picture of a corpse on the background of the Kremlin"

Wikipedia knew about the murder an hour early:

The West is connected to his death, which is just another provocation. There is no point for Putin to kill Nemtstov.

He did not present any danger to the Kremlin with his rating of 4-5%. You could perhaps blame the authorities if Navalny was killed, but Nemtsov is not a figure of that magnitude. This is first. And second, if Putin really wanted to kill him, then I am sure as a former KGB agent, he wouldn't work so unprofessionally. For example, Boris Nemtsov would die in a car crash, or from a heart attack, but no one in the Kremlin would think of putting some bullets into him.

Real capitalism and free markets simply do not exist any longer. A few powerful interests manipulate all markets, unlimited fiat money is a profitable franchise and we are attempting to police and control the entire world to maintain our leadership position held since the end of World War Two.

Today you are a fool to trust what the government or press claims is true, fair and balanced, as it's all just propaganda. Regulatory organizations exist only to protect the favored industries not the public, our legal system is a joke and all wars fought for democracy against evil are just looting expeditions against other nations out for profits, gain and natural resources.

Uninsured Ex-Sheriff Who Fought O-care Struggles To Pay Medical Bills

Former Arizona county sheriff Richard Mack, a fierce opponent of Obamacare and a leader in the "constitutional sheriff" movement, is struggling to pay his medical bills after he and his wife each faced serious illnesses.

It will only “steel” Iran’s resolve to develop nuclear weapons and end an inspections regime that the Iranians have accepted as well as break up the international coalition that the U.S. has put together to talk to Iran.

10 Reasons Washington Has War Fever

As Clausewitz so clearly stated, "War is merely the continuation of policy by other means," and our leadership and the special interests behind them want to continue the policies and actions that have created so much wealth and world power for them. Think for a moment about the threats they are facing at home and abroad and how a major but limited war could solve or postpone most of their problems and threats to their powerbase.

There are two problems with the war solution. First, while it may be in their best interest to guarantee their survival, war would be bad for our military, soldiers and civilians as well as our economy, private wealth and remaining liberties. Second, there is no guarantee that a real war once started would remain limited in nature. I think both world wars are historical examples of how plans for limited wars can turn into major wars killing tens of millions and all of this for power hungry politicians and vested economic interests

Report: Obama threatened to fire on Israeli jets attacking Iran

The decision came, according to al-Jarida, after Israel revealed that the United States and Iran had been involved in secret talks over Iran’s nuclear program and were about to sign an agreement in that regard behind Israel's back.

According to the report, Netanyahu and his commanders agreed after four nights of deliberations to task the Israeli army's chief of staff Beni Gants to prepare a qualitative operation against Iran's nuclear program. In addition, Netanyahu and his ministers decided to do whatever they could do to thwart a possible agreement between Iran and the White House because such an agreement is, allegedly, a threat to Israel's security.

The sources added that Gants and his commanders prepared the requested plan and that Israeli fighter jets trained for several weeks in order to make sure the plans would work successfully. Israeli fighter jets even carried out experimental flights in Iran's airspace after they managed to break through radars.

Vice President Joe Biden used a Black History Month event at his official residence Monday night to decry the rich, both white and black, for stunting economic growth and suggested that “emancipation” is in order.

“A lot of wealthy white and black people aren't bad but they control 1 percent of the economy and this cannot stand,” Biden told about 100 guests, including past civil rights activists and NBC weatherman Al Roker.

The White House-Israel rift just got deeper

In a searing rebuke of the Israeli prime minister, US National Security Adviser Susan Rice warned Tuesday that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's coming speech in front of a joint session of Congress had cast a partisan pall over the ties between the two close allies and threatened "the fabric of the relationship."

In an interview with Charlie Rose on PBS, Rice faulted both Netanyahu and John Boehner, the Republican speaker of the house who extended the invitation to the prime minister to address Congress on Iran, for creating the "destructive" situation.

What Is FCC Hiding? Show Us

The Federal Communications Commission plans sweeping new regulations on the Internet that it claims will help consumers. If so, why are they keeping these rules hidden before voting on them Thursday?

For years, the FCC has been trying to impose itself on the Internet in name of "net neutrality," only to be thwarted by the courts. Even net neutrality backers can point to only fear, not harm, as justification for such intervention.

Rather than admit net neutrality is a solution in search of a problem, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler decided — at the urging of President Obama — to regulate the Internet under what's called Title II. That's the part of the law that established the FCC and would let the government regulate competitive Internet service providers as though they were Ma Bell circa 1935.

Wheeler has refused to release the 332-page plan he wants the commission to approve on Thursday, citing FCC tradition as the reason.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Net Neutrality can be described on a single page. So what are in the either 331 pages the FCC doesn't want you to see? Licenesed required (with heavy fees) for globs? Content control under "Standards and practices" as is now done with TV? Transfer of the public bandwidth into corporate control (again, as was done with radio and TV)?

It looks like the government created the whole "Net Neutrality Crisis" to get us to go along with allowing the White House to seize control of the internet, which has become a major threat to those who rule by lies and deception.

Obama's regs will make Internet slow as in Europe, warn FCC, FEC commissioners

“These Internet regulations will deter broadband deployment, depress network investment and slow broadband speeds. How do we know? Compare Europe, which has long had utility-style regulations, with the United States, which has embraced a light-touch regulatory model. Broadband speeds in the United States, both wired and wireless, are significantly faster than those in Europe. Broadband investment in the United States is several multiples that of Europe. And broadband’s reach is much wider in the United States, despite its much lower population density,” the two wrote.

They also joined to warn about the Democrat-chaired Federal Election Commission eyeing regulation of political speech on the Internet.

Noting recent votes on the issue that ended in a political deadlock, the two wrote, “these close votes and the risk of idiosyncratic case-by-case enforcement inevitably discourage citizens and groups from speaking freely online about politics.”

Some with insurance still slammed with high bills when they get sick

Stephanie and Daniel Dufek did everything they were supposed to do in building a middle-class life for themselves and their daughter. They lived modestly. They had health insurance. They saved.

"We had a normal life," Stephanie Dufek said.

Then her husband got sick.

In roughly a year, the family incurred more than $20,000 in medical bills, shattering their finances and leaving them with a tenuous hold on the life they had built.

White House Economic Report Calls for Cutting Corporate Taxes

On Thursday, the White House released its “2015 Economic Report of the President,” presenting it as an argument for “middle-class economics.”

The document seeks to justify Obama’s scheme, spelled out in his most recent budget proposal, to slash corporate taxes by up to ten percentage points. The report attempts to obscure the fact that such a windfall for the corporate-financial elite will dramatically increase social inequality, claiming instead that it will “increase productivity, output and living standards.”

The document falsifies both present economic reality and the development of the US economy in the post-World War II period in order to argue for further pro-corporate “reforms.”

Despite US/Israel Demands, 'Isolated' Russia Offers Iran Advanced Anti-Aircraft Missiles

With proxy wars mounting and "isolated" Russia ratifying The BRICS Bank this week, we are sure Washington is preparing to double-down on 'costs' (to Europeans) as Reuters reports, Russia has offered Iran its latest Antey-2500 missiles (ironically after a deal to supply less powerful S-300 missiles was dropped under Western pressure in 2010). While the United States and Israel lobbied Russia to block the missile sale, the head of Russian state defense conglomerate, Sergei Chemezov, says, "as far as Iran is concerned, we offered Antey-2500 instead of S-300. They are thinking. No decision has been made yet."

U.S. helped Israel develop hydrogen bomb: Obama releases documents

Officials from the Islamic Republic of Iran claim they have documents that prove the United States assisted Israel in its development of a hydrogen bomb, which they claim is a crime according to international laws, according to the Iranian news media.

The Destabilization Doctrine: ISIS, Proxies and Patsies

It would certainly seem that way if one were to take at face value the putrid assertions of Western governments that are not particularly known for their honesty or integrity. But astute observers of history and geopolitics can spot a deception when they see one, and the latest theatrical performances being marketed to the masses as real, organic occurrences remind one of a Monty Python sketch.

In the past week we have witnessed a number of expedient events that were designed to legitimize the West’s imperialist foreign policies in the minds of the masses. On Feb. 15 the Islamic State (also known as ISIS) released another highly choreographed and visually striking video allegedly depicting the beheading of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians. Shortly following the video’s release, the Egyptian dictator Abdel Fattah el-Sissi launched air strikes against ISIS targets in Libya where the execution video was allegedly filmed, although experts are now saying that the production was faked.

White House that promised transparency refuses to cooperate with IRS probe

The White House told Congress last week it refused to dig into its computers for emails that could shed light on what kinds of private taxpayer information the IRS shares with President Obama’s top aides, assuring Congress that the IRS will address the issue — eventually.

The tax agency has already said it doesn’t have the capability to dig out the emails in question, but the White House’s chief counsel, W. Neil Eggleston, insisted in a letter last week to House Committee on Ways and Means Chairman Paul Ryan that the IRS would try again once it finishes with the tea party-targeting scandal.

India Officials: Tree Obama Planted Isn’t Dead, Just Looks Dead

Officials in India want to make one thing clear: The tree that President Barack Obama planted in New Delhi three weeks ago is not dead.

It just looks dead.

The peepal tree was awash in leaves when Obama planted it at the New Delhi memorial to Indian independence leader Mohandas K. Gandhi. By Thursday, though, it was just a single lonely stem.

Its lack of leaves has been giving Indian officials sleepless nights, with the media here blasting them for allowing the tree to die less than a month after the presidential visit.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It's just a @#$%ing tree! Maybe Obama damaged the tap root during the planting.

As a side note, in front of the Iolani Palace in Honolulu (the only royal palace on a US state) there is a Kukui Nut tree planted by Franklin Roosevelt. It is still healthy, and the locals always point to it and say "There are President Roosevelt's nuts!"

Victoria Nuland Shocks, Irritates Germany for the Second Time

According to the report, Nuland called Chancellor Merkel’s trip to visit Russian President Vladimir Putin “Merkel’s Moscow stuff.” The atmosphere heated up; one of the senators was to have ridiculed the German Defense Minister (the “Defeatism Minister”); a reference to the Europeans’ “Moscow bullshit” was probably also made.

The top diplomat Nuland is considered conservative. In case of an electoral victory by the Republicans in the coming year, she will be considered a potential new Secretary of State. She is married to Robert Kagan, a [Ed: neo-]conservative thinker. Last year he published a text, why America must remain the undisputed leader of the world.

In the Ukraine crisis Nuland is a hardliner and a supporter of delivering weapons – unlike her President Barack Obama, she has a clear opinion on what needs to be done.

Obama: Pass a bill or I’ll rip up the Constitution

When Republicans challenged Obamacare in the courts, they had to overcome the hurdle of persuading the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn a program enacted by Congress and signed by a president. The legal challenge by Texas and 25 other states to the administration’s executive actions on immigration is different. Congress never passed a Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (or DAPA) to grant legal status to some 5 million undocumented immigrants. President Obama himself never signed what his aides call an “executive action”; Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson takes that honor. Thus DAPA is a scary power grab that claims the president — and even his bureaucrats — have the power to override duly enacted federal law. Federal Judge Andrew S. Hanen of Brownsville, Texas, was right to issue a temporary injunction against it.

Biden has a well-documented history of being quite touchy-feely, but it's only recently started to become a recurring meme.

Obama’s “Fake War” against the Islamic State (ISIS). The Islamic State is Protected by the US and its Allies

Since August 2014, the US Air Force with the support of a coalition of 19 countries has relentlessly waged an intensified air campaign against Syria and Iraq allegedly targeting the Islamic State brigades.

According to Defense News, over 16,000 airstrikes were carried out from August 2014 to mid January 2015. Sixty percent of the air strikes were conducted by the US Air Force using advanced jet fighter and bombing capabilities (Aaron Mehta, “A-10 Performing 11 Percent of Anti-ISIS Sorties”. Defense News, January 19, 2015.)

The airstrikes have been casually described by the media as part of a “soft” counter-terrorism operation, rather than an act of all out war directed against Syria and Iraq.

White House Overhypes Obamacare Enrollment, Again

Yesterday evening, not long after the official (but not actual) end of Obamacare’s open enrollment period, the White House Twitter feed posted some breaking news: “About 11.4 million Americans are signed up for private health coverage,” the tweet said, posting the information with the hashtag #ACAWorks.

It is in some ways remarkable that the White House can provide this information so quickly. Not because the information should be hard to collect, but because other similar information often eludes the administration.

As Bloomberg News health care reporter Alex Wayne noted on Twitter earlier today during a Q&A session with Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Matthews Burwell, the administration "still can’t tell us how many people were enrolled in Obamacare at the end of 2014."

The coup has been thwarted. Venezuela prevailed!

As Telesur reported:

“Nicolas Maduro announced Thursday that the government had thwarted a coup attempt which was being coordinated by Venezuela’s right-wing opposition with the support of the U.S. government.

Just the day before the revelations, opposition leaders Leopoldo Lopez, Maria Corina Machado and Antonio Ledezma released a “transition plan” which involved privatization of the country’s oil, deregulation of the economy and accords with “international financial institutions” including the International Monetary Fund.”

The army stood firmly by the government of President Maduro. Most of Latin America, including UNASUR, expressed both their solidarity and support.
