US sponsored ISIS Burning

Russia is putting on a display of fire power in Syria that is shocking the world and embarrassing the Obama administration.

“The tide of the conflict in Syria seems to be turning fast because the Russians have stepped in… The militants are in total panic. 600 militants have abandoned their positions… The Russian Airforce has been bombing the living daylights out of ISIS…”

Mossad Takes Pride in One of Its Worst Debacles

61 years after the revelation of the Lavon Affair, the original ‘false flag’ operation, Israel’s spooks believe it was more bad luck than embarrassment, if it was embarrassing at all.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In 1954, Israeli agents working in Egypt planted bombs in several buildings, including a United States diplomatic facility, and left evidence behind implicating Egyptian Muslims as the culprits. The ruse would have worked, had not one of the bombs detonated prematurely, allowing the Egyptians to capture and identify one of the bombers, which in turn led to the round up of an Israeli spy ring.

Some of the spies were from Israel, while others were recruited from the local Jewish population. Israel responded to the scandal with claims in the media that there was no spy ring, that it was all a hoax perpetrated by "anti-Semites".

But as the public trial progressed, it was evident that Israel had indeed been behind the bombing. Eventually, Israeli's Defense Minister Pinhas Lavon was brought down by the scandal, although it appears that he was himself the victim of a frame-up by the real authors of the bombing project, code named "Operation Susannah."

It is therefore a fact that Israel has a prior history of setting off bombs with the intent to blame Arabs for them.

Google and YouTube now engaging in wholesale censorship of content they don’t want the public to see

GooYouTubegle, and its popular video sharing platform YouTube, are quickly becoming purveyors of propaganda, censoring material that could expose and question the status quo. These popular internet platforms are following in the footsteps of oppressive government regimes that punish whistle blowers and go after anyone who asks questions, seeks answers and reports on the most atrocious abuses of the day.

Recent “changes” at YouTube now allow their technocratic management to remove monetization from videos they don’t want people to hear or see. Independent media source, All News Pipeline, has had to appeal eight videos that were stripped of monetization for censorship reasons.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Google refuses whatreallyhappened.com for any advertising or video monetization.

Russian passenger jet crashes over Sinai Live updates

First official images from Sinai crash scene emerge:

Webmaster's Commentary: 


This photo interests me. We can see the vertical stabilizer has been peeled backwards from the fuselage, yet there are no signs of impact damage to the leading edge. This leaves us with two possibilities. The first is that the aircraft exceeded its normal maximum speed while diving and the vertical stabilizer failed under the excess loads. But what if the vertical stabilizer failed in normal flight? That would throw the aircraft instantly out of control leading to the crash sequence reported. If I were investigating this crash I would be taking a very careful look at the fasteners along that split seam.

Pepsi Admits That Its Aquafina Bottled Water Is Just Tap Water, Coca-Cola’s Dasani Is Next

On Friday, the Pepsi corporation admitted that its Aquafina bottled water is not purified water or spring water, but simply plain old tap water. The company will now be forced to change the labeling of the brand to reflect that it is just tap water.

Many informed customers choose bottled water because they are concerned about the quality of tap water, which is many times riddled with fluoride and pharmaceuticals. Sadly, we are now learning that in many cases, bottled water is actually not any better than tap water.

Over the years, an advocacy group called, “Corporate Accountability International” has been checking the contents of bottled water and pressuring companies to stop their false advertisement.

Aquafina is actually one of the top selling water brands in the world, and may see a slide in sales as a result of these new findings.

911 Widow Kristen Breitweiser to Condi Rice: Here's Your 9/11 Smoking Gun

In response to your comment that you could personally "plead guilty" to not having imagined terrorists would use passenger aircraft as weapons?please stop lying.

As proof, I provide the "Iron Man" documents from the Asymmetrical Threats Division of Joint Forces Intelligence Command (JFIC), also known as DO5, whose task it was to track UBL from mid 1998-mid 2001.

I would first note that you were National Security Advisor to the President of the United States -- that means that you had pretty much access to anything and everything available regarding terrorist threats from groups like Al Qaeda.

Fourteen years later, everyone now knows about the summer of 2001 and the more than one dozen intelligence reports blinking red about an impending Al Qaeda terrorist attack. There was the August 6 PDB, FAA reports, CIA reports, DoD reports, and FBI reports -- all indicating and discussing terrorist cells inside the US planning attacks inside the US.

According to the climate, and the bombs will be in the future be used only for the destruction of fortresses Islamists - an underground bunker, buried command posts, forts made of reinforced concrete and storage of weapons and ammunition.

The Families Funding the 2016 Presidential Election

They are overwhelmingly white, rich, older and male, in a nation that is being remade by the young, by women, and by black and brown voters. Across a sprawling country, they reside in an archipelago of wealth, exclusive neighborhoods dotting a handful of cities and towns. And in an economy that has minted billionaires in a dizzying array of industries, most made their fortunes in just two: finance and energy.

Now they are deploying their vast wealth in the political arena, providing almost half of all the seed money raised to support Democratic and Republican presidential candidates. Just 158 families, along with companies they own or control, contributed $176 million in the first phase of the campaign, a New York Times investigation found. Not since before Watergate have so few people and businesses provided so much early money in a campaign, most of it through channels legalized by the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision five years ago.

25 Ways that the Police Foster Tyranny by Just Doing their Jobs

They are right when they decry the militarization of local police. They are right to point out that the DOD 1033 program has transferred over $5 billion worth of military equipment from the Defense Department to local police forces. They are right to oppose more federal laws and mandates relating to local police. They are right to oppose a federal police “czar” like the Congressional Black Caucus has called for. They are right to oppose nationalizing the local police. They are right to point out that the Constitution only provides for the federal government to punish the crimes of treason, piracy, and counterfeiting. They are right to decry all the federal police in the alphabet soup of federal agencies. They are right to oppose making the police like a branch of the U.S. armed forces. They are right to oppose federal funding of local law enforcement. They are right to oppose federal control over local law enforcement.

NEW PROBE REVEALS NSA TARGETED ENTIRE STAFFS OF EU GOVERNMENTS

A German government-sanctioned special investigation has exposed a "clear breach" of intelligence-sharing agreements—including illegal surveillance of European authorities—between the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) and its German counterpart, known as the BND.

According to Sputnik International:

Nearly 70 percent of the screened selectors concerned the authorities of EU countries, says the report.

"Whole staffs of European governments were the target of American spying. Nearly 16 percent of the selectors were related to telecommunications subscribers in Germany, which are protected by the Basic Law against spying through their own intelligence services," [Der Spiegel] reported.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Smooth move, NSA; you have just destroyed the European market for any Apple or Microsoft products, because of the fears of US surveillance back doors, hard-wired into them.

Europeans are smart people; they will figure out a way to avoid this kind of surveillance to a point where the NSA will not be able to reverse engineer it.

US SENDS TROOPS TO SYRIA: HERE ARE THE QUESTIONS THE MEDIA SHOULD BE ASKING

On Friday, The White House announcedthat the US is set to put boots on the ground in Syria.

Predictably, virtually no one in the mainstream media is asking the right questions.

Ok, so what appears to be going on here is that Washington is going to embed the US commandos with the Kurds and support them with airstikes flown from Incirlik. If you follow the conflict closely, that should strike you as completely absurd. The US is going to fight alongside the YPG and provide them with air support via a Turkish airbase.

But just last week, Turkish warplanes flying from the very same airbase bombed these very same Kurds as they were trying to fight this very same ISIS!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It has become painfully clear to me, during this administration's "handling" of geopolitical issues, that the ability to think a scenario to its logical conclusion is not a welcomed gift, and something that is selected against,in terms of hiring.

Le Figaro poll: Over 70% want Syria’s Assad to remain in power

A recent poll carried out by France’s Le Figaro newspaper has indicated that at least 72 percent of respondents want Syrian President Bashar Assad to remain in power.

The survey, published on Thursday, asked: “Should world powers demand Bashar Assad to leave?” At least 28 percent from 21,314 respondents have voted “Yes” so far, while the majority – 72 percent – have said “No”.

The poll was conducted ahead of the Vienna talks, where 19 global powers gathered to find a solution for a nationwide ceasefire in Syria. The fate of Assad remained the stumbling block during discussions.

Israel legalizes 800 homes in W. Bank settlements, says homes aren’t new

Israel has legalized about 800 homes in four settlements in the West Bank, the Interior Ministry said. The decision comes amid increasing violence across the occupied Palestinian territories and Israel, which has resulted in dozens of casualties.

The homes include 377 in the Yakir settlement, 187 in Itmar and 94 in Shilo in the northern West Bank, and 97 homes in the Sansana settlement in the West Bank’s southern Judaean Mountains, the ministry said.

Israeli authorities took this decision two weeks ago, but it was only revealed to the media on Friday.

FBI Knew Jared Fogle Was a Pedophile, Let Him Continue Molesting Children for Years

The story was reignited two days ago when the New York Post revealed the contents of secretly recorded audio tapes. In them, Fogle’s perversions are laid bare.

“I would fly us clear across the world if we need to. To Thailand or wherever we want to go. If we’re gonna try to get some young kids with us it would be a lot easier,” said 38-year-old Fogle, married father of two, in the tapes. “I had a little boy. It was amazing. It just felt so good. I mean, it felt — it felt so good.”

The recordings were made by Rochelle Herman-Walrond, a former Florida journalist who took it upon herself to stop Fogle after hearing him profess his sexual taste for children. Masking her own disgust, she befriended Fogle so she could record and expose him.

She contacted the Federal Bureau of Investigation, who asked her to wear a wire. Glossed over in the mainstream media, however, is the fact that the entire process took ten years, according to an interview Herman-Walrond gave to ABC News.

Blumenthal wrote Secretary Clinton about more than Libya — Syria and Israel too

Sidney Blumenthal, the Clinton ally who was the subject of relentless questions from a special congressional committee investigating the raid on U.S. facilities in Benghazi Libya, wrote to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton about more Middle East hot spots than just Libya.

New Clinton e-mails released by the State Department on Friday show that Blumenthal, a Clinton family friend who worked in President Bill Clinton's administration, wrote a four-page memo about Syria and other Middle East countries.

On May 17, 2011, a confidential e-mail from Blumenthal addressed to "Hillary" provided information about Syria that Blumenthal claimed had not been reported previously.

John Kerry says Americans should be disqualified from public office if they don't agree with global warming alarmism, but not if they hate the Constitution

This is about nothing but control; the elites want to control the masses through regulation and manipulation. It's really just as simple as that. Liberals like Obama and Kerry and the authoritarians at the United Nations have one thing in mind, and that is to ensure they have a thumb on your head from the second you are born until the second you die telling you how to live, how to eat, where you can and can't work and what rights you are entitled to, as Kerry's absurd statements about who should hold public office demonstrate.

Once you understand the basic concept behind this "manmade global warming" nonsense – and it is nonsense – you will begin to see through the lies and propaganda.

Jeb Bush Super PAC chief makes possible death threat against Donald Trump

Running to a left-wing media outlet that normally has little love for conservatives (which should tell you that this latest Trump attack might be coming from a "Republican" but not a "conservative"), Mike Murphy — a top Jeb Bush supporter — recently told Bloomberg Politics that Trump is "dead politically" and will never be president of the United States, never mind his consistent front-runner status.

Murphy further unloaded on Trump, describing him as "a false zombie front-runner."

BEX ALERT - ISIS by Releasing Video Says Shoot Down Russian Passenger Plane

ISIS branch in Sinai released a video and says shoot down Russian passenger’s plane.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The photo of a plane could be from anywhere, but there is nothing in the photo to indicate it has been attacked. It could just be in a steep turn, and since the Egyptian authorities are saying the plane came down in two sections (which could indicate an onboard bomb) separated by more than a mile, this photo of an intact plane so close to the ground is suspicious.

The frustrating problem is that we cannot trust anything being said by anyone with an agenda in that region. But the net result of this is that Russia will go after the Jihadists even more fiercely and has justification to bomb ISIS in the Sinai.

BEX TSUNAMI WARNING - IS claims responsibility for Russian plane crash in Egypt

A militant group affiliated to Islamic State in Egypt claimed responsibility for the downing of a Russian passenger plane that crashed in Egypt's Sinai peninsula on Saturday, the group said in a statement circulated by supporters on Twitter.

Egyptian security sources earlier on Saturday said early investigations suggested the plane crashed due to a technical fault.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What would be the motive for ISIS to kill a Russian plane over the Sinai? To hand Russia justification to start bombing one of their safe havens? What would ISIS have that can hit a passenger jet at MSL 335? It is too soon to know what happened, but clearly all of the propagandists are already cranking up the spin!

“There are also other problems, such as the production of military-oriented biological weapons and the very large funding allocated to this,” Patrushev added.

Fighting a Cultural Boycott of Israel

with platitudes and willful blindness to historical precedents

snip: Those who first proposed the cultural boycott did not do it out of some anti-Semitic dislike for Israeli artworks, music, literature or theater. They did it because cultural interaction with Israel had not only failed to promote an equitable peace, but in fact camouflaged the policies of a nation-state that practices ethnic cleansing and other destructive policies against non-Jews.

The logical conclusion was drawn that if you want to pressure the Israelis to change their ways, you withdraw from cultural contact and make any reconnection a condition of their getting serious about conflict resolution.

US Invasion of Syria Begins

While the US claims this move is to "defeat the Islamic State (ISIS)," it is instead clearly a move to establish long-sought "buffer zones" or "safe zones" in Syria where the Syrian government can no longer operate. US airpower will also undoubtedly be used to cover these special forces, creating a defacto no-fly-zone wherever they operate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A reminder: Syria has not attacked the US. The US Congress has not declared war on Syria. The United Nations has not authorized the US to intervene in Syria. The US invasion of Syria is illegal under both the UN Charter and international law.

In other words, the US is the aggressor.

ISIS has claimed responsibility for destroying a Russian passenger jet in response to Vladimir Putin's decision to bomb Jihadi targets in Syria, although both Moscow and Egypt have denied any possible terrorism link. . .

. . . It crashed in the Hassana area, south of Arish. Security forces discovered the crash wreckage in a remote mountainous area in a region containing many ISIS-affiliated terrorists.

Egyptian sources are claiming that wreckage has been spread over a three-mile area while an ISIS-affiliate has tried to claim responsibility for the disaster.

According to the statement: 'The soldiers of the caliphate succeeded in bringing down a Russian plane in Sinai.' However, Russian transport ministry sources dismissed the claim suggesting 'they cannot be accurate'.

What $6 Billion US Tax Dollars buy in Ukraine...

The US and EU have spent many billions on installing and propping up their puppet proxy government in Kiev. And after the purchase, “Cry ‘Havoc!’, and let slip the dogs of war”. These traitors, psychopaths and genuine terrorists have committed countless war crimes in the East, and run the society and economy into the ground in the West of Ukraine. The billions sent by the West to Ukraine do not go to foster “freedom and democracy”, they go to line the pockets of the criminals and traitors in power, to the detriment of the Ukrainian People, both East and West. So, as the US and EU continue to fund their Dogs of War in Kiev, one must ask, “How much is that War Doggie in the window?” And what do you get for your money?

Belated admission of a war crime: When would “misrepresenting the truth" actually be called an outright lie?

“Dr Blix told me that Tony Blair’s claims about Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction were simply not an accurate reflection of the intelligence provided to the British government.
"The big difference in the British dossier,” Dr Blix told me, “was that they simply asserted that these items are there. But when Mr Blair asserts that there were weapons, well that's an assertion and it was not supported by evidence. Both the UK and the US replaced question marks by exclamation marks. I certainly think it was a misrepresentation.

Jon Stewart Quits Comedy, Starts Animal Sanctuary to Rescue Abused Factory Farm Animals

In an effort to be the change he wishes to see in the world, comedian John Stewart, after stepping down as host of “The Daily Show,” has started a sanctuary for abused factory farm animals called Bufflehead Farm.

Jon and wife Tracey announced on Saturday that they will become part of Farm Sanctuary’s network of animal safe havens at the annual Farm Sanctuary gala in New York City.

My already high opinion of Stewart just shot up another couple notches!

Hispanics question Clinton after flip-flop on licenses for illegal immigrants

At least one Hispanic advocacy group is questioning Hillary Rodham Clinton’s commitment to their stance on immigration after former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer confessed he canceled driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants to save her 2008 presidential campaign.

In an interview with former top Obama strategist David Azelrod, Mr. Spitzer said the Clinton campaign called him in 2007 and told him to kill the proposal to make the issue go away. Mrs. Clinton was the junior Democratic senator from New York at the time, and had stumbled in a debate when trying to answer whether she supported the policy or not.

Windows 10 will automatically download on to Windows 7 or 8 PCs

Microsoft’s efforts to entice users to upgrade to Windows 10 will soon see it automatically downloaded on to users computers without their knowledge.

The company announced that Windows 10 will become a “recommended update” starting next year, which means anyone with Windows 7 or 8 that has automatic updates activated – the default and the best way to keep a computer protected against security bugs – will have Windows 10 automatically downloaded without asking.

What’s more, the installer for Windows 10 will start once it has been downloading, presenting users with a popup. Users will be able to decline the update, once the installer has started, or prevent the update from being downloaded by manually blocking it in Windows update.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I think everyone who gets updated to Windows 10 and has their win7 applications stop working ought to file a class-action lawsuit against Microsoft so that Microsoft pays for all the needed software updates! And don't forget that win7 has an XP mode, which is not on win10, meaning even more costly updates to software! And we should include the cost of our time for the hours and hours we will spend on tweaks and fixes to get our computers back to where they are right now!

Orban: Soros funded those who want to weaken the countries of Europe

Hungarian Prime Minister - on the occasion of the migrant crisis - and accused the European left to work on the weakening of the state in the name of "an international dimension and cosmopolitanism"

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, supporters say current to the refugee crisis, said that the powerful financiers and left conspired to issue Europe.

"Europe have been released and if you do not defend our interests, our continent will no longer belong to the citizens who live here," Orban said at a press conference in Budapest.

Orban was questioned by US businessman of Hungarian origin George Soros, stating that "the plans of well-organized funders and some politicians that people never chose" can become a reality in Europe.

Hungarian Prime Minister has accused the European left to work on the weakening of the state in the name of "an international dimension and cosmopolitanism."

US Sending Special Forces to Aid ISIS in Syria

US forces who obey these illegal orders are giving aid and comfort to the enemies of America! Treason doth prosper when none dare call it treason. This is TREASON most foul!

Washington is desperate to find ways of countering Russia’s effective Middle East agenda - combining formidable military might against terrorism with trustworthy diplomacy, proving Moscow is a valued partner, polar opposite Washington, a rogue bully.

Obama’s pledge about no “American combat troops fighting on foreign soil” proved another of his many Big Lies.
US Special Forces will be deployed to northern areas - illegally without Damascus or Security Council authorization.

Unannounced greater numbers may join them. Their mission: aiding ISIS and other takfiri terrorists, putting them in harm’s way.

Net ‘Duality’ In EU: Parliament Votes In Favor Of Tiered Internet

The European Parliament has rejected a series of amendments to a regulation intended to safeguard and strengthen net neutrality in the EU. The rejected amendmentsincluded proposals that would have ensured there was no network discrimination, all Internet traffic would be treated equally, ISPs would not be allowed to become gatekeepers, and ISPs would have only been allowed to manage traffic when it was congested. According to the Commission, “the new rules protect the right of every European to access the content of their choice, without interference or discrimination”. The new legislation, “aimed to safeguard the open Internet”, however, allows the creation of Internet fast lanes for “specialized services” and lets Internet service providers (ISPs) offer so-called “zero-rating” products —apps and services that don’t count toward monthly data allowances — without restrictions.

French Mathematicians Blast UN’s ‘Costly & Pointless Crusade’ Against Global Warming

As the United Nations gears up for its next international conference on climate change in Paris next month (COP 21), a scathing white paper released by a society of French mathematicians calls its fight against global warming “absurd” and “a costly and pointless crusade”.

“You would probably have to go quite a long way back in human…history to find [such a] mad obsession,” according to a translated summary of the document released in September by the Paris-based Société de Calcul Mathématique SA.

The mathematicians harshly criticized a “crusade [that] has invaded every area of activity and everyone’s thinking," noting that "the battle [against] CO2 has become a national priority.

"How have we reached this point in a country that claims to be rational?” they ask, adding that mathematicians “do not believe in crusades. They look at facts, figures, comments and arguments.”

Putin: Anthropogenic Climate Change is a Geostrategic Weapon

Russian President Vladimir Putin says global warming is being used as an economic weapon against his country.

He characterized climate change as a “fraud” used to prevent Russia from tapping its vast oil and natural gas reserves.

Greenpeace claims 85 percent of CO2 equivalent emissions in Russia come from its energy industry.

According to a political analyst Stanislav Belkovsky, Putin believes “there is no global warming, that this is a fraud to restrain the industrial development of several countries, including Russia.”

GOP official admits to faking threats — and an innocent man may have spent 18 years in prison for it

A former Republican candidate for Congress has admitted to a judge that she was the author of threatening letters she sent to herself during her campaign in 2013 and 2014, reports Sacramento news outlet Fox40.

Former Stanislaus County clerk recorder Karen Mathews Davis, who claimed she stood up to terrorists in the 1990s, admitted to federal authorities that she sent the threatening letters after she failed a polygraph test. She was arrested and charged in California on Wednesday. She was released Thursday after posting a $50,000 bond.

What concerns prosecutors is that Mathews Davis also claimed that Roger Steiner attacked and sexually assaulted her in her garage in 1994, resulting in Steiner being sent to a federal prison for 18 years.

According to former state and federal prosecutor Bill Portanova, the confession by Mathews Davis brings into question her accusations against Steiner who, to this day, maintains his innocence.

White House Declines to Release Emails Between Hillary and Obama

The White House blocked the release of emails between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Obama, an administration official said today. The move comes as over 7,000 pages of emails from Clinton’s private servers were released this afternoon.

The State Department released thousands of emails today as part of an ongoing discovery process from dozens of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits filed against the department.

According to The New York Times, officials at the White House decided against disclosing correspondence between Obama and Clinton, citing “a long history of presidential records being kept confidential while the president is in office.”

Attempt to boycott Roger Waters show falls flat

Theater offers to refund tickets over musician's anti-Israel stance but performance still sold out

A theater in New York's offer to refund tickets to a sold-out performance by Roger Waters over his anti-Israel activism has been met with indifference as the theater has not yet received any refund requests.

Waters is a longtime vocal critic of Israeli policies, and a proponent of the BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) movement and has openly called on fellow musicians to boycott Israel.

The Simon Wiesenthal Center in a statement issued on Tuesday called on New Yorkers “to give Roger Waters the reception he deserves: an empty hall. We urge people who may have been unaware of his hate-filled boycott campaign and bought tickets for his performance, to vote with their feet and instead stand in solidarity — outside of the theater — with the innocent victims of terrorism in The Holy Land.”

Addressing western audiences, mainly American, Israel decontextualizes the violence.

A Russian plane carrying more than 200 passengers from the Egyptian resort of Sharm el-Sheikh has crashed in central Sinai, killing all of those on board, Egyptian officials have said.

The jet, operated by the Russian company Kogalymavia and branded as Metrojet, had initially been reported as being “completely destroyed with all on board likely to have died”, according to a security officer from the search and rescue team.

...

Destined for St Petersburg, the plane was carrying 224 people, including 17 children and seven crew members.

...

Northern Sinai is home to groups of Islamist militants, many affiliated to Islamic State, but there were no indications the plane was shot down, Egyptian security sources told Reuters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Even though the Egyptian authorities are saying there is no evidence of a shoot down, this article tries to imply a link with Islamic Jihadists, while known propaganda front Debkafile is already claiming the plane was shot down by a missile!

Here is a possibility we should consider. While the Egyptian authorities are saying there is no sign of an outside attack, it is too soon to rule out an on-board sabotage such as likely brought down Ron Brown's aircraft. The plane's flight path would have taken it over the eastern Mediterranean right off of the coast of Syria. Had the plane crashed there, it could have been blamed on Syria to strain relations between Damascus and Moscow. I wonder if this aircraft was delayed leaving the airport.

US On Road To Third World — Paul Craig Roberts

snip: The departure of well-paid US manufacturing jobs was soon followed by the departure of software engineering, IT, and other professional service jobs.
[...]
In articles and books I challenged this absurd conclusion, and all of the economic evidence proves that I am correct. The promised better jobs that the “New Economy” would create to replace the jobs gifted to foreigners have never appeared. Instead, the economy creates lowly-paid part-time jobs, such as waitresses, bartenders, retail clerks, and ambulatory health care services, while full-time jobs with benefits continue to shrink as a percentage of total jobs.

These part-time jobs do not provide enough income to form a household. Consequently, as a Federal Reserve study reports, “Nationally, nearly half of 25-year-olds lived with their parents in 2012-2013, up from just over 25% in 1999.”

Justice Scalia warns that the US Supreme Court is causing the 'destruction of our democratic system'

US Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia was extra-fiery during a talk at Santa Clara University in California this week, saying in no uncertain terms that the court had been making a lot of bad decisions.

In his speech, Scalia said he believes the "liberal" Supreme Court is heralding the "destruction of our democratic system," according to an account from the SF Gate.

According to Scalia, the court is giving citizens rights that the Constitution doesn't specifically guarantee, like gay marriage and federally subsidized health insurance.

Scalia noted that this interpretation of the US Constitution as a "living document" arose in the 1920s, when Supreme Court justices at the time interpreted the "guarantee of due process of law to protect fundamental rights not explicitly mentioned in constitutional text," according SF Gate.

To Scalia, this was the beginning of a slippery slope that the US will struggle to recover from.

8-month-old dies from ‘tear gas shot by Israeli forces’ – Palestinian Health Ministry

An eight-month-old Palestinian baby has died from tear gas inhalation near the city of Bethlehem where clashes between Palestinians and the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) had been taking place, the Palestinian Ministry of Health claims.

“Ramadan Thawabteh, eight months old, died from asphyxiation today after inhaling tear gas, fired by the Israeli army, that entered the house of his family,” a ministry spokesman said Friday, as cited by The Times of Israel.

It remains unclear whether a tear gas grenade actually landed inside the house or whether it was the gas seeping from the outside which killed the baby.

The baby’s body was reportedly transported to Beit Jala Governmental Hospital.

No confirmation or comment has followed from the Israeli side as of yet. However an Israeli army spokesperson told Ma'an news agency they were looking into the incident.
