Israel says China demands no workers in settlements

China has told Israel it will not allow migrant builders to work on settlements in the occupied West Bank, a senior Israeli government official said on Monday.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pledged during his reelection campaign to step up settlement construction, and cabinet ministers in his new government have called for more building in the occupied territories, which is seen as an obstacle to peace with the Palestinians.

Hillary's plans to stuff the ballot box

Since Hillary won’t have the youthful exuberance that propelled Obama to his unlikely double victory, she plans to build a whole new electorate out of people who didn’t vote for Obama. That’s the gist of her speech in Houston last week, which her friends at MSNBC called a “far-reaching vision for expanding access to the ballot box.”

Who are the new voters to whom Hillary wants to give “access to the ballot box”? They include felons and non-citizens, along with anyone who can’t prove identity, citizenship, or residence within the voting precinct.

She also plans to harvest millions of new votes by expanding the dangerous practices of same-day registration and early voting, which enable Democrats to badger, berate, bribe, or bamboozle reluctant low-information voters to the polls. Democratic Party and union workers can identify reluctant voters and harass them until the party worker verifies that they have actually cast their ballot.

For years, Senator Marco Rubio struggled under the weight of student debt, mortgages and an extra loan against the value of his home totaling hundreds of thousands of dollars. But in 2012, financial salvation seemed to have arrived: A publisher paid him $800,000 to write a book about growing up as the son of Cuban immigrants.

The Supreme Court May Have Just Banned Using A Gun In Your Home — And Virtually No One Noticed

Local governments now have the right to tell you how to store your guns thanks to the inaction of the US Supreme Court.

The court Monday refused to hear an appeal of a US Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that upheld a San Francisco ordinance requiring owners in their own home either to store firearms in a locked container or disable them with trigger locks when not in use. Gun owners can wear the gun in a holster, but other than that, the gun must be put away.

3 Hours and 47 Minutes After Obama Says He’ll Sign Law BANNING Bulk Collection, DOJ Asks Secret Court to CONTINUE Bulk Collection

The Obama administration has asked a secret surveillance court to ignore a federal court that found bulk surveillance illegal and to once again grant the National Security Agency the power to collect the phone records of millions of Americans for six months.

The legal request, filed nearly four hours after Barack Obama vowed to sign a new law banning precisely the bulk collection he asks the secret court to approve, also suggests that the administration may not necessarily comply with any potential court order demanding that the collection stop.

Opposition accuses Kiev of trying to cut Donbass off from Ukraine

Instead of implementing the Minsk agreements on the basis of Ukraine’s territorial integrity, Kiev is doing everything to cut off the Donbass region from the rest of the country, Ukraine’s Opposition Bloc party said on Monday.
The opposition party recalls in its statement that the authorities in Kiev have repeatedly promised that the Constitutional Commission would submit to parliament a draft reform providing for decentralization, an important provision of the Minsk agreements. "The Opposition Bloc demanded precisely this ahead of the last parliamentary week, but to no avail. The promise given by the authorities has remained unfulfilled," the document says.

Rand Paul Completely Ignores Anniversary of USS LIBERTY Massacre by Israel

Presidential hopeful Rand Paul callously ignored the 48th anniversary of Israel's attack on the USS Liberty yesterday. On social media, Paul tried to hawk copies of his new book, promoted an upcoming congressional baseball game, and repeatedly boasted that he now has '2 million followers on Facebook!' Rand Paul regularly posts about all sorts of obscure anniversaries and events, such as when he celebrated 'National Hug Day!' earlier this year. The U.S.S. Liberty slaughter, however, where 34 American sailors were killed and many others permanently maimed and injured, doesn't warrant a mention from the allegedly pro-American senator. Rand Paul often gives speeches oddly noting that 'Israelis Don't Burn American Flags' and even admitted in a 2013 Senate speech that he visits with Israeli groups daily." Paul also insists that Israel is "one friend that never leaves our side, has never wavered." [See our site RandPaulZionist.com for much, much more on this topic.]

Russia, India Set to Jointly Produce Defense Equipment

Russia is India’s top partner for the joint production of arms.
It’s chosen top partner seems to be Russia which is its traditional number one arms supplier, as well as a BRICS partner. As a result Russia-India military ties may be set to rise to the next level. India’s Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj:
Our military-technical cooperation with Russia was based on a ‘buyer-seller’ relationship – they sold arms, and we bought them. But this [cooperation] has now changed. Russia has decided to produce weapons in India, as well as to jointly manufacture arms with us, transferring the corresponding technologies.
Russia and India ties are based on mutual trust. Russia is our time-tested friend.

UN’s Ban Ki-moon caves in, takes Israel off list of serious child abusers

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has caved in to pressure from Israel and the United States and taken the Israeli military off an official list of serious violators of children’s rights, in this year’s report on children in armed conflict.

In doing so, Ban rejected an official recommendation from his own Special Representative for Children and Armed Conflict Leila Zerrougui and numerous human rights organizations and child rights defenders.

Ban’s act is particularly egregious since the report found that the number of children killed in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip in 2014, at 557, was the third highest only after Iraq and Afghanistan and ahead of Syria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The United Nations just lost all credibility. Something to keep in mind the next time the US Government justifies a war by saying they have a UN resolution supporting them.

Who shot who in Waco biker bloodbath? Mystery as witnesses say semi-automatic guns favored by POLICE did most of the shooting in contested accounts of battle

Six witnesses have described a melee that began with a few pistol shots but was dominated by semi-automatic gunfire.

Waco police have said they returned fire after being shot at, and call the witnesses' depictions of events incorrect.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The only ones at the scene with semi-automatic assault rifles were the police. Only one such weapon was confiscated from the victims and that was found in the locked trunk of a car after the shooting was over.

Kiev Rebuffs Rebel Offer to Keep Donbass a Part of Ukraine

Leaders of the self-proclaimed republics have submitted proposed changes to the Ukrainian constitution granting Donbass autonomy, but not separation, from Ukraine. But Kiev won’t even sit down at the negotiation table.
Korrespondent reports that representatives from the two republics, Vladislav Deynego and Denis Pushilin, have submitted proposed changes to the Ukrainian constitution which recognize Donbass as an autonomous region of Ukraine.
But Kiev won’t even consider the proposed changes. The Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada, Vladimir Groysman, declared that they would discuss constitutional changes only with “legally elected” representatives of Donbass.
It’s clear what Kiev wants: Total submission from the rebel republics.
In other words: It looks like more war.

Kiev forces pull Grad rocket systems close to engagement line — DPR

Kiev’s forces are pulling heavy weaponry close to the engagement line with the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), spokesman for the DPR Defence Ministry Eduard Basurin said on Tuesday.
"The DPR reconnaissance continues registering the facts of the redeployment of the Ukrainian army’s personnel and combat hardware. Two Grad batteries comprising 12 multiple launch rocket systems were seen redeployed towards Slaviansk," the Donetsk News Agency quoted the DPR defence spokesman as saying.
The DPR reconnaissance also reported about the movement of one 2S7 Pion self-propelled artillery gun in the south-western direction through the village of Konstantinovka and the detection of a DANA artillery piece and a BM-21 Grad system in the communities of Tsukurino and Lebedinskoye, the spokesman said.
The DPR Defence Ministry said on Monday the pro-Kiev forces had redeployed Grad multiple launch rocket systems to the area of the settlement of Andreyevka near Donetsk.

BEX ALERT - Gary Webb was no journalism hero, despite what ‘Kill the Messenger’ says

The Hollywood version of his story — a truth-teller persecuted by the cowardly and craven mainstream media — is pure fiction. But Webb was a real person who wrote a real story, a three-part series called “Dark Alliance,” in August 1996 for the San Jose Mercury News, one of the flagship newspapers of the then-mighty Knight Ridder chain. Webb’s story made the extraordinary claim that the Central Intelligence Agency was responsible for the crack cocaine epidemic in America. What he lacked was the extraordinary proof. But at first, the claim was enough. Webb’s story became notable as the first major journalism cause celebre on the newly emerging Internet. The black community roiled in anger at the supposed CIA perfidy.

Then it all began to come apart. The New York Times, The Washington Post and the Los Angeles Times, in a rare show of unanimity, all wrote major pieces knocking the story down for its overblown claims and undernourished reporting.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a classic WP hatchet-job. I am not surprised they closed the comments. They excoriate the author of this tripe, Jeff Leen, whose purpose was not so much to tarnish the memory of Webb but to keep the lid on the secret Webb exposed, which was that the CIA is the biggest illegal drug smuggler in the nation (if not the world).

Leen's entire dismissal of Webb's story is based on the claim that all of the corporate media wrote articles denying that the CIA was involved in the drug trade. Setting aside the fact that the CIA controls the corporate media through Operation MOCKINGBIRD, we only need remember that the corporate media were unanimous that Saddam had nuclear weapons and that humans are warming the Earth!

Environmental safety should be a top priority during the construction of the Trans-Caspian gas pipeline, which Turkmenistan and Azerbaijan would like to lay between their shores with the EU and US support, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Tuesday.
The opinion of all the Caspian Sea littoral states on this project should be taken into account, the Russian diplomat said.
"The problem of building trunk pipelines in the Caspian Sea, which is a unique water reservoir in all regards, should be primarily seen through the prism of the environment and only after that from the economic point of view," the Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman said.

Donald Rumsfeld: George W. Bush Was Wrong About Iraq

Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, one of the staunchest defenders of the Iraq war, said in an interview with the Times of London that his boss, former President George W. Bush, was wrong to try to create democracy onto Iraq.

“The idea that we could fashion a democracy in Iraq seemed to me unrealistic. I was concerned about it when I first heard those words,” Rumsfeld said, adding, “I’m not one who thinks that our particular template of democracy is appropriate for other countries at every moment of their histories.”

Webmaster's Commentary:

Moscow turns down IAEA draft annual report due to IAEA’s position on Crimea — FM

Russia turns down the draft annual report of the International Atomic Energy Agency [IAEA] over the latter’s position on Crimea and Sevastopol, head of the Russian delegation and ambassador at large Grigory Berdennikov said on Monday at a session of the IAEA Board of Governors in Vienna.
"We paid attention to the fact that the supplement to the draft report has an assertion that Sevastopol was allegedly party of Ukraine over the reporting period [in 2014], which is not true," the diplomat said. "It is a false assertion that ignores that fact that following an illegal state coup in Kiev in February 2014 people living in the then Crimean autonomous republic, including the city of Sevastopol, voted at a referendum for reunification with Russia. After that, we officially informed the IAEA secretariat that Crimea’s units were taken under Russian jurisdiction and suggested the Agency should apply guarantee under our agreement on guarantees."

Barely anyone throughout history has asked, "but won't this also bring on such and such?" They buy the slogans and accuse questioners of paranoia. They turn on the unbelievers, accusing the "Luddites" of being heretics, cavemen and even murderers. It doesn't occur to ask "why do things get worse" if things are so "advanced"?

In other words, despite the February ceasefire, Soros is pushing behind the scenes to make sure Ukraine receives top-of-the-line lethal weapons from the United States. Of course it will be up to us to pay the bill because Ukraine is broke.

It can sterilise septic water, kill giardia, treat fungal infections such as candida and rivals pharmaceutical antibiotics such as streptomycin and penicillin in its ability to eliminate microbes.

We previously warned of the risks of escalation in The Middle East to something much more dangerous, but, as the Saudi ambassador to UK confirmed today, the risk of Wahhabis going nuclear is even higher than many expected, "...if [Iran will not offer assurances it will not pursue nuclear weapons], then all options will be on the table for Saudi Arabia... Iran’s nuclear program poses a direct threat to the entire region and constitutes a major source and incentive for nuclear proliferation across the Middle East, including Israel."

Congress Didn't Notice the FBI Creating a 'Small Air Force' for Surveillance

: Excessive executive branch secrecy and the legislature’s oversight failures
Last week, Americans learned that even as the NSA collected information on their telephone and Internet behavior, the FBI was using fictitious companies to secretly operate what the AP called “a small air force with scores of low-flying planes across the country carrying video and, at times, cell phone surveillance technology.” The news organization reported that surveillance flights may be more than a decade old, and identified “more than 100 flights since late April orbiting both major cities and rural areas.”

With huge design flaws, the enormously expensive F-35 fighter jet is completely unsuitable for combat. Uncle Sam’s expenditure on this jet is just the latest astonishing example of out-of-control government spending. Here are some other things that could’ve been purchased with the $1.5 trillion that the F-35 cost to develop.

US Defense Department paid 14 NFL teams $5.4M to honor soldiers

The waving of the red, white and blue, comes with a healthy dose of green. According to Christopher Baxter and Jonathan Salant of NJ.com, the New Jersey Army National Guard and the Department of Defense, paid the Jets a total of $377,000 from 2011 to 2014, for their salutes and other advertising, citing federal contracts. The NFL does just about everything it can to align itself with the military, whether that means discussing itself using the terms of warfare, or making overt displays of respect to those who have served in the armed forces. Of course, this is hardly a magnanimous gesture — it serves as positive PR for a league that frequently takes harsh criticism on a host of other issues.

UN spurns Palestinian children

Ban Ki-moon’s decision not to include Israel on the list of violators of children’s rights twists the knife in the heart of every Palestinian parent, making it very clear that in the eyes of the United Nations, Palestinian children’s lives don’t count.

When a military with the most sophisticated and accurate weaponry on the planet can kill more than 500 children in cold blood with complete impunity, as Israel’s absence from the list shows, it reveals more than just the complete disregard for Palestinian lives that has become so commonplace in the halls of power. It also makes it abundantly clear that the UN, the single most important international organisation charged with protecting the lives of the most vulnerable, is failing spectacularly.

Why Is The EU Forcing European Nations To Adopt ‘Bail-In’ Legislation By The End Of The Summer?

Are they expecting something to happen? As you will read about below, the European Union says that any nation within the EU that does not enact “bail-in” legislation within the next two months will face legal action. The countries that are being threatened in this manner include Italy and France. If you fast forward two months from this moment, that puts us in early August. So clearly the European Union wants everything to be squared away by the end of the summer. Is there a reason for this? Are they anticipating that something really bad will happen in September or thereafter? Why such a rush?

We all remember what happened when major banks were “bailed out” during the last financial crisis. A tremendous amount of taxpayer money was given to the big banks to help prop them up so they wouldn’t fail. This greatly upset a lot of people.

Did “China” Really Say “War” With the United States is “Inevitable”?

Spoiler: No.

It would seem a certain amount of foreign affairs reporting starts out as pabulum fed by the government and its loyal allies to available journos, who further if incompletely digest it and then crap it out on the digital pages of various newspapers, magazines, and think tank white papers for the delectation of a somewhat undiscriminating public.

Israel’s Attack on the Liberty, Revisited

A Soviet destroyer responded before the US Navy, even though a US submarine, on a covert mission, was apparently in the area and had monitored the attack. The Soviet ship reached the Liberty six hours before the USS Davis. The captain of the Soviet ship offered his aid, but the Liberty’s conning officer refused.

Finally, 16 hours after the attack two US destroyers reached the Liberty. By that time, 34 US sailors were dead and 174 injured, many seriously. As the wounded were being evacuated, an officer with the Office of Naval Intelligence instructed the men not to talk about their ordeal with the press.

The following morning Israel launched a surprise invasion of Syria, breaching the new cease-fire agreement and seizing control of the Golan Heights.

As the dust settles over Turkey's 25th parliamentary elections, Western powers are busy scrambling to work out if the results will work in their favour.
