Ultra Wealthy Ignore Drought: “No, We’re Not All Equal When It Comes To Water”

China Mocks G7 As "Gathering Of Debtors", Warns "Confrontation Will Be A Disaster For Europe"

Vladimir Putin didn’t get an invite to the Angela Merkel-hosted G7 Summit in Bavaria last week, which means the Russian President not only missed out on two days at the scenic Castle Elmau, but also on lederhosen shopping with US President Barack Obama who, judging from eyewitness accounts and a variety of amusing photo ops, channeled his inner Clark Griswold upon touching down in the Bavarian town of Krun. The G7 isn’t pleased with Russia’s ‘behavior’ in Eastern Europe and so, Moscow has been expelled from the cool kids club until such a time as the Kremlin agrees to uphold Western democratic values.

Russia Condemns "Aggressive" US Weapons Deployment; Will Send Troops To Protect Border

"Russia would be left with no other option but to boost its troops and forces on the western flank," General Yuri Yakubov was quoted as saying.

Israelis Want Genocide Redefined

• Ultimate goal is unfettered annihilation of Lebanese and Palestinians.

For some folks, annihilating an entire people and other crimes against humanity are just fine—so long as they are the perpetrators and not the perpetrated upon. Our readers, on the other hand, being among those who are not sociopathic mass murderers, may be disturbed by the psychotic hubris of the racist, terrorist, genocidal, rogue nuclear state, Israel. While claiming exceptional status—and even another people’s land—because the entire world ostensibly detests them, and the Germans allegedly tried to eliminate them, the Zionists now have approached a new pinnacle of hatred by seeking to overturn international law prohibiting genocide and military attacks on civilian non-combatant populations—including laws those same Zionists helped to create.

The Derivatives Disaster

• Plutocrats push world to financial precipice yet again.

Money should be a medium of exchange only. The ancient Greeks understood this, as did the Christian world until the 16th century when usurers finally convinced pastors and potentates in the “Age of Exploration” that a “small amount” of interest on a loan was reasonable to offset risk of loss. But the trickle became a torrent and then a flood, as money became an “investment,” instead of merely the means of transacting business more efficiently.

Now, in the 21st century, the tidal wave of debt created by unscrupulous plutocrats for personal enrichment and the enslavement of the masses threatens to crush the world. Ironically, it may be today’s Greeks who become the catalyst of destruction when the current derivatives bubble bursts.

Gøtzsche, the research director at Denmark’s Nordic Cochrane Centre, has published numerous papers in prestigious medical journals and participated in a debate,” entitled “Does long term use of psychiatric drugs cause more harm than good?” where he argued “yes” to that question.

81 Billion Reasons Your Money Is Not Safe in the Bank

The days of banks being trusted institutions to help protect your savings & retirement are over. First, it was the banks gambling on derivatives that blew up the global economy in 2008 and cost citizens trillions in savings & retirement. Then, it was the banks turning over customer accounts to the IRS & police for total seizure without due process of law. Next came reports that banks are abolishing our ability to use & store cash. And now comes a frightening report that banks have agreed to pay $81 BILLION in restitution & penalties for criminal & civil abuses against the public and their own customers. So more than ever, if you want real protection of your savings & retirement, you better move it out of the bank. Fast.

Israeli Special Units Brutally Attack Sick Prisoner

Israeli soldiers from the Nahshon special unit Sunday severely assaulted a sick Palestinian prisoner, while he was being transferred to hospital to undergo medical examination.

Prisoner Mohammed Abd Rabo, 29, told a Palestinian Prisoner’s Club (PPC) lawyer, who visited him in the Israeli Nafha jail following the assault, that around 20 soldiers from Nahshon unit severally assualted him for asking them to untie his hands and feet during his transfer to Soroka Medical Center, in Israel, for medical examination.

He said that soldiers brutally attacked him and threw him on the floor before sending him back to jail without taking him to hospital.

Abd Rabo, who was sentenced to 16 years in jail, suffers from what he described as unbearable pain due to chronic stomach pain and vomiting. He said that the Israeli prison administration only provides him with over the counter pain killers.

Webmaster's Commentary:

John Oliver and Helen Mirren destroy Americans’ fairy-tale belief in torture with horrifying children’s tales

On HBO’s Last Week Tonight, host John Oliver took up the unpleasant, and unfortunately mostly ignored, topic of torture in America done under the auspices of the CIA.

Noting that the Senate Intelligence Committee released a 6,700-page investigation of torture, with a 500-page version available to the public, Oliver sought to explain that Americans need to read the available version because they have been “dangerously misinformed” about torture.

With a CBS poll showing the 69 percent of Americans believing that waterboarding is torture and 57 percent believing “aggressive” interrogation techniques help stop terrorist attacks, Oliver set out to point out that not only doesn’t torture work — it may make a comeback since it is only restricted by executive order, which can be tossed out by the next president.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When the US government tortures, or outsources torture, the following happens.

1. The world understands that those values of human decency, democracy, and human rights are only words, and not respected values by this country's government.
2. That every US politician who uses these words, and then backs torture, is a hypocrite of the highest order.
3. The use of torture by the US gives carte blanche to any world leader who doesn't much like us to do the same to American citizens or American military.

Please chew on this last one for awhile, particularly if you have friends or family serving in the US military.

Thousands of Nicaraguans have held a protest against the planned construction of a canal linking the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.

The $50bn (£32bn) scheme, being built by a Chinese firm, will be longer, deeper and wider than the Panama Canal.

But the demonstrators fear it will have huge environmental costs and force thousands off their land.

Nicaragua's government says the canal will bring vital investment to one of Central America's poorest countries.

Some among the protesters, who were mostly farmers, accused President Daniel Ortega of selling Nicaragua to the Chinese.

Initial site work began last December, with completion due in five years.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It's all about the money; the politicians in Nicaragua give little or no care to the situations of Nicaraguans this is going to hurt than do the political leadership in the US does about what TTP will do to ordinary American citizens, should it actually get passed.

Russian oil major Rosneft and BP are close to signing a $700 million deal for BP to acquire a 20 percent stake in the Taas-Yuriakh Siberian oilfield, reports the FT. The deal could be announced this week at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.

The introduction of EU sanctions against Russia hasn’t scared off the largest European companies, working in the fuel and energy sector, according to the Financial Times.

Besides BP, Italy’s Eni and Norway’s Statoil have already received governmental approval to continue working on joint projects with Rosneft. Shell continues to work with Gazprom Neft over the Salym project in the Siberian Khanty-Mansiysk area and is seeking Dutch government approval for other joint ventures.

The news comes as the G7 claimed they are ready to extend sanctions last week. The announcement was also made just days prior to the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, dubbed the ‘Russian Davos’.

The Explorers program, a coeducational affiliate of the Boy Scouts of America that began 60 years ago, is training thousands of young people in skills used to confront terrorism, illegal immigration and escalating border violence — an intense ratcheting up of one of the group’s longtime missions to prepare youths for more traditional jobs as police officers and firefighters. (Germany had the Hitler Youth program, which bears a striking resemblance to the "explorer program")

The Explorer training, which leaders say is not intended to be applied outside the simulated Explorer setting, can involve chasing down illegal border crossers as well as more dangerous situations that include facing down terrorists and taking out “active shooters.” In a simulation here of a raid on marijuana field, several Explorers were instructed on how to quiet an obstreperous lookout.

School to Jail Pipeline for Disabled Kids?

Albuquerque police jailed a middle school special ed student twice because they thought it better to jail disabled kids to than leave them in school, the teenager claims in court.
Sidney Summers, now 18, sued the Albuquerque Police Department and Sgt. Michael Archibeque in Bernalillo County Court, citing two incidents from 2009, when Summers was 12 years old.
Summers claims his arrests and jailings exemplified a culture of discrimination against special education students under Archibeque, who supervised Albuquerque's school resource officers at the time. Archibeque is the only individual defendant.
In his June 10 lawsuit, Summers says he was arrested for childhood temper outbursts in which no one was injured.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is so wrong, on so many levels, that I hardly know where to start.

I have personally worked with special needs kids at a private facility, and know firsthand that nothing reaches these children like love, kindness, and structure. Jailing special needs kids sends absolutely the wrong message, as does not dealing with kids who torment kids like this, and think it is perfectly fine.

This is a really lousy policy on the part of the Albuquerque police, and needs to be changed, STAT!!

He further instructed the agency’s health personnel to oversee the brutal interrogations – the beginning of years of controversy, still ongoing, about US torture as a violation of medical ethics.

But the revelation of the guidelines has prompted critics of CIA torture to question how the agency could have ever implemented what it calls “enhanced interrogation techniques” – despite apparently having rules against “research on human subjects” without their informed consent.

Alabama child services abducts autistic boys damaged by MMR vaccine; starves, forcibly drugs them in foster care

The cries of the innocent who seek justice in today's America are reaching a piercing crescendo. Case after case of unwarranted medical child abduction portends a ruthless totalitarian future for every single parent trying to raise children in this country -- this, as a result of growing oppression from a hostile police state that sees nothing wrong with ripping children away from their parents for no legitimate reason and throwing them into the foster system.

Such a harrowing scenario is exemplified in the ongoing case of Arnold and Alan Cullins, a pair of autistic boys from Alabama who were recently abducted from their birth mother without cause. Alabama's Department of Human Resources (DHR), commonly known in other states as Child Protective Services (CPS), literally snatched the two brothers away from their mother not long after she was admitted to a hospital with cardiac issues, and is now holding them captive.

“When we googled these NGOs, we knew that they were Israelis,” the official, who preferred to keep the name of his Western-European country unknown, added.

He further criticised the Israeli behaviour at the UN, which is often supported by the United States. “We are disgusted in some of the European countries about what Israel and the US are doing,” he said, “It is rather shameful that Israel attempts to mislead us.”

Hidden Dispensary Raid Video Shows Cops Eating Pot-Laced Baked Goods, Joking About Assaulting Amputee

The footage shows that eight officers had masks on and their guns drawn when they entered Sky High Holistic, shouting “everybody on the ground” to customers and workers. After clearing the building of everyone present, the police began to remove the store’s mounted surveillance cameras, though they did not get the ones hidden by the owners when they heard about the upcoming raid.

Marla James, the amputee seen in the footage, intends to sue the city for allegations of police misconduct. Her reasons stem from a part of the video showing that as soon as she left the building, the cops started to crack jokes about her condition. One cop even said, “I was about to kick her in her f—ing nub.”

“They intimidated me. They threatened me,” James said, who is considered legally blind. “What they did, it was like shooting fish in a barrel.”

Texas Governor Greg Abbott has signed a bill (HB 483) into law on Friday, June 12, that will allow Texas to build a gold and silver bullion depository. In addition, Texas will repatriate their $1 billion worth of bullion from the Federal Reserve in New York to the new facility once completed.

The writing is on the wall – institutions are losing faith and trust – and are transitioning or converting into ‘physical’ ‘real’ money, before it’s too late…

Clinton Campaign Manager Denies that Polls Show Voters Don’t Trust Hillary

The Hillary Clinton campaign took a bit of a bizarre turn on Sunday when her campaign manager, Robby Mook, went on national television and denied the existence of polls showing that voters don’t trust her.

Face the Nation host John Dickerson asked Mook how Clinton overcomes the trust issue, which Democratic strategists and Clinton supporters see as her biggest issue in light of those polls.

“Well, first of all, no poll shows that voters don’t trust Hillary Clinton,” Mook said. “No poll says that.”

Ukraine to Get New IMF Loans Despite Inability to Repay Private Lenders and Another Country Falls into Permanent Debt to Loan Sharks.

Like the United States, all of Europe and most of the world.
In spite the grievous state of the Ukrainian economy, the IMF said it will continue to lend money (backed by what? The paper it’s printed on) to Ukraine, so Kiev can complete economic restructuring
Despite Keynesian economic theory that you can borrow your way out of debt, you can’t.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The United States, all of Europe and the IMF will continue to lend money to Ukraine, so Kiev can wage war on their own people and provoke a confrontation with Russia.

(And don't you wish you could get the same deal from your credit card companies!)

American empire imploding both at home & abroad

For all the massive destructive power in its arsenal, the Vietnamese had exposed US imperialism as a giant with feet of clay. The name given to this period of hard power retreat was the ‘Vietnam syndrome’ and lasted from 1975 to 1991, when the US and an international coalition embarked on the First Gulf War to force Iraqi troops out of Kuwait.

We are witnessing a similar period of US imperial decline now with regard to Washington’s inability to stage large-scale military operations. It arrived as a consequence of the failed occupations of Afghanistan and Iraq, both of which achieved nothing except the eruption of terrorism and extremism across the region, and by extension the world.

Is Deutsche Bank The Next Lehman?

Looking back at the Lehman Brothers collapse of 2008, it’s amazing how quickly it all happened. In hindsight there were a few early-warning signs, but the true scale of the disaster publicly unfolded only in the final moments before it became apparent that Lehman was doomed.


If Deutsche Bank is the next Lehman, we will not know until events are moving at an uncontrollable and accelerating speed. The nature of all fractional-reserve banks — who are by definition bankrupt at all times – is to project an aura of stability until that illusion has already begun to implode.

Dershowitz spills the beans: Supreme Court’s Jerusalem case impact on Iran deal

Alan Dershowitz has been giving a few interviews this week lambasting Mondays’ Supreme Court decision overturning an unconstitutional 2002 law on Jerusalem. Predictably, he doesn’t like it. According to Dershowitz, the ruling is not only “silly” and “utterly unnecessary“–it’s also “dangerous to the world”.

Why? because Dershowitz thinks it gives too much power to the President over Congress regarding the Iran deal. He’s wrong but it’s interesting for what it revealed about the intentions of the parties pushing the case.

During an interview broadcast last night on an Israeli TV station he spilled the beans.

Lindsey Graham: Military leaders ‘need to be fired’ if they don’t support my plan for war in Iraq

Republican presidential candidate Lindsey Graham suggested over the weekend that he would fire military leaders who did not support his plan to send 10,000 troops back to Iraq.

The Washington Post reported on Saturday that military officials had cautioned President Barack Obama against sending combat troops to fight the radical Islamic group ISIS in Iraq.

US archbishop resigns after archdiocese charged with coverup

Pope Francis has started making good on his promise to not let even the most senior churchmen get away with sex abuse or cover-up.

On Monday, he accepted the resignation of the embattled archbishop of St. Paul and Minneapolis and his deputy bishop after prosecutors there charged the archdiocese with having failed to protect children from unspeakable harm from a pedophile priest who was later convicted of molesting two boys.

Jun 15 08:57

Why are journalists surprised that Israel kills children?

There was nothing surprising about Israel finding itself not culpable for the killing of four boys on a Gaza beach in July last year, as it did in a military judgment released a few days ago.

Israel’s investigations into its own crimes aren’t known for delivering guilty verdicts.

    Press TV-Gilad Atzmon on Steven Salaita, University of Illinois and Jewish Power

    A leading academic group has slammed the University of Illinois for refusing to employ a professor over his anti-Israel tweets.
    The American Association of University Professors says the decision to withdraw Steven Salaita’s job offer is against the principle of academic freedom. Salaita lost the opportunity over his Twitter posts which exposed Israel’s atrocities in the Gaza Strip. The group has described Salaita’s tweets as expressions of outrage in strong language over the war in Gaza. The University’s chancellor has reacted to the censure, saying it will have repercussions and will be taken seriously.

    US and Israel Bar Palestinian Filmmaker From NYC Film Premiere About Intifada Cows

    The annual Human Rights Watch International Film Festival is underway here in New York City, but one of its featured directors won’t be able to attend his film’s US premiere this weekend. That’s because Israel recently deemed Palestinian filmmaker Amer Shomali a "security threat" and prevented him from traveling to Jerusalem to obtain a US visa. Then he went to Amman, Jordan, where the US approved a visa but said their visa machine was broken. Shomali had previously attended half a dozen European festivals without incident, and his film has drawn international acclaim.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    Apparently it is a First Amendment right to Freedom of Speech to allow Pamela Geller to insult Muslims all day long, but this man is not allowed to enter US to attend showing of his film in NYC.

    Consumers Not Following Orders

    Last week the government reported personal income and spending for April. After months of blaming non-existent consumer spending on cold weather, shockingly occurring during the Winter, the captured mainstream media pundits, Ivy League educated Wall Street economist lackeys, and Keynesian loving money printers at the Fed have run out of propaganda to explain why Americans are not spending money they don’t have. The corporate mainstream media is now visibly angry with the American people for not doing what the Ivy League propagated Keynesian academic models say they should be doing.

    NJ court rules for nurse in vaccine-refusal firing

    A nurse was unfairly denied unemployment benefits after she was fired for refusing a flu shot without claiming a religious or medical exemption, a New Jersey appeals court ruled Thursday.

    The three-judge panel wrote that the hospital's policy of allowing religious or medical exemptions to the flu shot requirement "unconstitutionally discriminated against" plaintiff June Valent by rejecting her refusal to be vaccinated for secular reasons.

    Valent was working as a nurse at Hackettstown Community Hospital in 2010 when the hospital's parent company began requiring employees to take the flu vaccine unless they had medical or religious reasons not to. Employees claiming an exemption were required to sign a form and provide documentation. Anyone refusing the vaccine was required to wear a mask while at work.

    Five reasons the MI6 story is a lie

    4) This anti Snowden non-story – even the Sunday Times admits there is no evidence anybody has been harmed – is timed precisely to coincide with the government’s new Snooper’s Charter act, enabling the security services to access all our internet activity. Remember that GCHQ already has an archive of 800,000 perfectly innocent British people engaged in sex chats online.

    5) The paper publishing the story is owned by Rupert Murdoch. It is sourced to the people who brought you the dossier on Iraqi Weapons of Mass Destruction, every single “fact” in which proved to be a fabrication. Why would you believe the liars now?

    There you have five reasons the story is a lie.

    Dude, where's my Humvee? Islamic State capturing Iraqi equipment at alarming rate

    Iraqi security forces lost 2,300 Humvee armored vehicles when Islamic State overran the northern city of Mosul in June 2014, Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said on Sunday in an interview with Iraqiya state television. Coupled with previous losses of American weapons, the conclusion is simple: The United States is effectively supplying Islamic State with tools of war the militant group cannot otherwise hope to acquire from its patrons.

    In addition to the Humvees, Iraqi forces previously abandoned significant types and numbers of heavy weapons to Islamic State. For example, losses to Islamic State include at least 40 M1A1 main battle tanks, as well as small arms and ammunition, including 74,000 machine guns, and as many as 52 M198 howitzer mobile gun systems.

    "We lost a lot of weapons," Abadi admitted.

    Drama professor Naila Keleta-Mae says she based the course, called Gender and Performance, on that album because it's the first time Bey explicitly aligns herself with feminism.

    Eve Martin, the English woman who told me her family in Sheffield are mercenaries who do assassinations on contract for the U.K. government, claimed her uncles could gain access to official records such as birth and death records, and alter them. That capability would indicate some high-level contacts and influence with the Home Office such as only a National Security agency would be likely to have.

    I was quite intially skeptical of that claim, but there is some evidence to support it from the official death records of the Home Office.

    Trade treaties, mega-corporations, and worldwide socialism

    By Jon Rappoport

    I use the loaded word “socialism” in the headline, because it’s important to understand that Globalism is a form of socialism.

    That may not sit well with some people, because they believe in the socialism team and they think that team is against Globalism. Nothing could be further from the truth. It’s about time they woke up.

    Globalism was born out of the triumphs of cutthroat capitalists like Rockefeller, and out of the triumphs of international bankers like Rothschild and Warburg. These men made a decision quite natural for them...

    U.S. Catholic Bishops Release Barrage of Propaganda on 'Climate Change' Preceding Pope Francis' Encyclical on Ecology this Thursday

    In anticipation of Pope Francis' much ballyhooed encyclical on ecology this Thursday June 18, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has released a barrage of propaganda regarding 'climate change' and carbon pollution standards. Their rhetoric on all this carbon stuff is tedious and annoying to read. For example, one of their documents states: "The broader religious community shares a deep conviction that the issue of global climate change presents an unprecedented threat to the integrity of life on Earth..." I wish they would put forth even one third the effort that they do addressing the EPA, Obama and Congress on 'climate change,' and instead put some of that effort into persuading Obama, the Defense Department, and the Secretary of State and Congress to stop all the unjust wars, the genocide, torture, rape of Muslims worldwide, the fracking, the GMO, the poison vaccines, the U.S. police state, and the spying, groping, and endless civil rights abuses which assault our dignity.

    NZ Govt signs up for Chinese banking initiative

    The Government has formally agreed to become a founding member of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank - an initiative led by China because it wanted more influence in the world's banking systems to reflect its importance in the world economy.

    The bank will have initial capital of close to $139 billion to invest in infrastructure projects in Asia, and New Zealand's paid contribution will be about $125 million over five years.

    Finance Minister Bill English said New Zealand was the first western developed country to join negotiations with China to set up the bank.

    "Our membership will enhance our already strong economic, trade and investment links with the Asian region."

    He said the bank would address a significant gap in infrastructure investment in the Asian region.

    New Zealand will formally join the bank in a signing ceremony in Beijing this month.
