"After World War II, in the name of containing Communism, the United States, mostly through the actions of local allies, executed or encouraged coups in, among other places, Guatemala, Brazil, Chile, Uruguay, Argentina and patronized a brutal mercenary war in Nicaragua ... By the end of the Cold War, Latin American security forces trained, funded, equipped, and incited by Washington had executed a reign of bloody terror - hundreds of thousands killed, an equal number tortured, millions driven into exile-from which the region has yet to fully recover." -- Greg Grandin in his book "Empire's Workshop"

Watch Politicians Snap When Alternative Media Journalist Asks them One Short Question

By John Vibes

Jan Helfeld is a political journalist who has been traveling around and asking politicians some of the same awkward questions that work to expose the illegitimacy of their authority. His questions were extremely simple and many times ridiculed as “stupid” by the politicians that he interviewed, because he was attempting to establish moral principles using the Socratic method...

Exclusive: "And It's Gone... It's All Gone" - The One Gold Scandal That Goes To The Very Top

So three years ago, Turkey was purchasing Iran oil and paying in gold. Now it is purchasing ISIS oil and paying in dollars, for the simple reason that there is no banking embargo against the Islamic State like there was against Iran in 2012. One almost wonders why the international community was far stricter with Iran than it is with ISIS now.

NSA HELPED BRITISH SPIES FIND SECURITY HOLES IN JUNIPER FIREWALLS

A TOP-SECRET document dated February 2011 reveals that British spy agency GCHQ, with the knowledge and apparent cooperation of the NSA, acquired the capability to covertly exploit security vulnerabilities in 13 different models of firewalls made by Juniper Networks, a leading provider of networking and Internet security gear.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is insane.

The drug kingpins, the gangs, and the highly placed criminals already have nearly bullet-proof encryption; so why, please should the rest of us, trying to make a living, be punished with the various US alphabet-soup agencies examining everything we do on line?

Well, whatever poor sod has the dubious distinction of having to follow me on line knows I love my husband; love to create music; am a Christian pacifist who never advocates for violence; love staying in touch with my friends, and love to look at jewelry ( but rarely buys). In a word: boring!! :-)

Bill Clinton's birthplace is destroyed by 'arsonists': Christmas morning blaze wipes out president's childhood Arkansas home

A blaze that damaged Bill Clinton's birthplace early Christmas morning is suspected to be arson, authorities say.

The fire at the William J Clinton Birthplace, a National Historic Site, in Hope, Arkansas, began at about 3.20am, according to the Hope Prescott.

It does not appear that the building was set on fire by accident, according to Hope Fire Department Chief Dale Glanton.

'There's just evidence and signs that we do believe it was intentionally set,' Glanton told KSLA. 'It will be investigated and handled as a potential arson fire.'

Unclassified DHS Documents Prove Local Law Enforcement is Being Propagandized against Innocent American Patriots

Homeland Security documents, which have been marked as "Unclassified/Law Enforcement Sensitive," appear to demonstrate just how local law enforcement is being propagandized against Patriots in the united States by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) under Barack Hussein Obama Soetoro Sobarkah. And who did the document target? The Constitutional militia, specifically those who engaged the Department of Interior's Bureau of Land Management (BLM) in Nevada of April last year at the Bundy Ranch siege.

First and foremost understand that the "intelligence assessment," dated July 2014, claims that DHS has "seen a spike within the past year in violence committed by militia extremists and lone offenders who hold violent anti-government beliefs."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently Washington DC thinks we should all love the government no matter how much they shit all over us!

"But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security." -- The Declaration of Independence

Cop Accidentally Shoots Pistol Inside Airport While “Practicing his Quick Draw Skills”

Imagine for a moment that you were open carrying a pistol in a public space and all of the sudden, you accidentally squeeze off a round. There are two possible scenarios that would take place; the first one being that police return fire and you are killed. The second, less lethal result would be your inevitable arrest and charges of public endangerment, unlawful discharge, illegal use of a firearm, assault with a deadly weapon, terrorism, or a myriad of other charges associated with sending a deadly projectile hurling through walls and near the heads of innocent people. You would immediately be facing fines, jail time, probation, and firearms restrictions.

America delivers three ultimatums to Russia

"US Secretary of State John Kerry is a serious man. He is a representative of the ruling clans of the United States. John Kerry came to Russia with Victoria Nuland. In the US delegation, there was also US ambassador to Russia John Tefft. They wanted to put something like an ultimatum to Vladimir Putin. If an official of Kerry's level arrives, he should have clear objectives. The objective is clear. The United States needs to remove Putin from power. Another objective is to take complete control of Syria by getting rid of Bishar al-Assad.

Ukraine's Looming "19 Fukushimas" Scenario

With all the action in Syria, the Ukraine is no longer a subject for discussion in the West. In Russia, where the Ukraine is still a major problem looming on the horizon, and where some 1.5 million Ukrainian refugees are settling in, with no intentions of going back to what's left of the Ukraine, it is still actively discussed. But for the US, and for the EU, it is now yet another major foreign policy embarrassment, and the less said about it the better.

Why is the U.S. subsidizing Israeli settlements?

A few miles away from Efrat sits the pleasant campground of Oz Vegaon, a West Bank outpost built without the required land allocation and planning permits from the Israeli Civil Administration. Campers, tourists and right-wing groups gather here to enjoy the newly constructed facilities. Women in Green helped to build Oz Vegaon last year, naming it after three Jewish teens murdered by Palestinians not too far from there. Some of the money it used on the site traveled some 5,700 miles from the center of Manhattan. Matar’s group is one of many settler organizations fueled with tax-exempt American dollars, of which increasing amounts arrive each year.

Jewish Terrorists Burned An Israeli Church, Now Israel's Government Is Screwing The Church Out Of The Money It Needs To Rebuild

National Geographic has a new article on Jewish extremist violence against Christians in Israel and the West Bank.

Much of it has already been long reported elsewhere, including here on FailedMessiah.com.

But one point made in the National Geographic report, which primarily focuses on the Church of Multiplication of Loaves and Fishes hate crime arson, hasn't been made, and that point arguably shows how dishonest Israel's government really is:

…Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu quickly designated the fire as a terrorist attack, making the church ineligible to draw on insurance but paving the way for government compensation. Two months later, the Israeli Tax Authority declared that the violent event did not qualify as terrorism, and therefore could not receive government funding.

HOUSE DEMOCRATS INTRODUCE BILL TO BAN ALL GUNS IN AMERICA EXCEPT SINGLE SHOT.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The actual text of this bill is HERE. Read it carefully. The bill defines virtually every kind of auto-loading gun as an "assault weapon" The goal is not to stop crime, as most of these weapons are not used to commit crimes, but to hand a military advantage to the government in advance of a population angered to the point of rebellion by further confiscation of our wealth and our children for more wars of conquest.

This bill is a complete violation of the Second Amendment. The United States Supreme Court ruled in Marbury vs Madison that laws repugnant to the Constitution are automatically null and void. The United States Supreme Court reaffirmed that principle in Norton vs Shelby County! The United States Supreme Court also ruled in United States vs Miller that the Second Amendment reserves to the people arms equal to those carried by the uniformed government forces, given that the purpose of the Second Amendment is not hunting or target shooting but arming the people against the rise of tyranny.

This bill proves that tyranny is alive and well in Sodom on the Potomac. This bill proves that Congress has gone off the Constitutional reservation they are supposed to confine themselves to, and by that act have proven that they are no longer the legal and legitimate government of this nation. As a result, the American people are under no legal or moral obligation to obey such a government, pay its bills, or sacrifice the lives of their children in the government's wars of conquest!

"The Constitution preserves "the advantage of being armed which Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation. . . (where) the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms." -- The Federalist, No. 46 - James Madison

"[I]f circumstances should at any time oblige the government to form an army of any magnitude, that army can never be formidable to the liberties of the people while there is a large body of citizens, little if at all inferior to them in discipline and the use of arms, who stand ready to defend their rights and those of their fellow citizens." -- The Federalist, No. 29 - Alexander Hamilton

"[A]rms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property. . . Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them." -- Thoughts On Defensive War, 1775 - Thomas Paine

"What, sir, is the use of militia? It is to prevent the establishment of a standing army, the bane of liberty. . . Whenever Government means to invade the rights and liberties of the people, they always attempt to destroy the militia, in order to raise a standing army upon its ruins." -- Debate, U.S. House of representatives, August 17, 1789 - Elbridge Gerry

"The great object is, that every man be armed." - Patrick Henry

"That the people have a Right to mass and to bear arms; that a well regulated militia composed of the Body of the people, trained to arms, is the proper natural and safe defense of a free State..." - George Mason

"Are we at last brought to such an humiliating and debasing degradation that we cannot be trusted with arms for our own defense? Where is the difference between having our arms under our own possesion and under our own direction, and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands?" - Patrick Henry

"Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect every one who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined.... O sir, we should have fine times, indeed, if to punish tyrants, it were only sufficient to assemble the people!" - Patrick Henry

"No free government was ever founded or ever preserved its liberty, without uniting the characters of the citizen and soldier in those destined for the defense of the state.... Such are a well regulated militia, composed of the freeholders, citizen and husbandman, who take up arms to preserve their property, as individuals, and their rights as freemen." - State Gazette (Charleston), September 8, 1788

"While the people have property, arms in their hands, and only a spark of noble spirit, the most corrupt Congress must be mad to form any project of tyranny." - Rev. Nicholas Collin, Fayetteville Gazette (N.C.), October 12, 1789

"And that the said Constitution be never construed to authorize Congress to infringe the just liberty of the press, or the rights of conscience; or to prevent the people of the United States, who are peacable citizens, from keeping their own arms; or to raise standing armies, unless necessary for the defense of the United States, or of some one or more of them; or to prevent teh people from petitioning, in a peacable and orderly manner, the federal legislature, for a redress of grievances; or to subject the people to unreasonable searches and seizures of their persons, papers or possesions." - Samuel Adams, Debates of the Massachusetts Convention of 1788

"A militia when properly formed are in fact the people themselves . . . and include all men capable of bearing arms. . . To preserve liberty it is essential that the whole body of people always possess arms... The mind that aims at a select militia, must be influenced by a truly anti-republican principle." -- "... whereas, to preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them..." - Richard H. Lee, Additional Letters from the Federal Farmer 53, 1788

"... of the liberty of conscience in matters of religious faith, of speech and of the press; of the trail by jury of the vicinage in civil and criminal cases; of the benefit of the writ of habeas corpus; of the right to keep and bear arms.... If these rights are well defined, and secured against encroachment, it is impossible that government should ever degenerate into tyranny." - James Monroe

"The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government." (Thomas Jefferson Papers p. 334, 1950)

Independents like Bernie Sanders more than they like Hillary Clinton — a lot more

Bernie Sanders has a 2016 presidential election victory well within his reach — but a Sanders presidency would depend on one large voting bloc turning out at the polls, according to a new analysis of polling data released earlier this month by the respected Quinnipac University National Polling Center. In fact, that single voting bloc already has a much more favorable view of Sanders than of his Democratic rival, former United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Once the backdoors were found, it took just three days for the master password used in the backdoor to be posted online, sparking open season for any hacker to target a Juniper firewall.

If whoever planted the backdoor was non-American, it highlights the point the security community has been making for months: these backdoors can and will be used and abused by the enemy.

While federal agencies such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Drug Enforcement Administration, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, and the US Marshals will continue using the legal tool, the“equitable sharing payments” will not return until “a later date should the budget picture improve,” according to the DOJ.

If We Don't Change the Way Money Is Created and Distributed, We Change Nothing

The only real solution in my view is to create and distribute money at the base of the pyramid rather than to those in the top of the pyramid. Many well-intended people want to reform the status quo for all sorts of worthy reasons: to reduce wealth inequality, restore democracy, create good-paying jobs, and so on. All these goals are laudable, but if we don't change the way money is created and distributed, nothing really changes: wealth inequality will keep rising, governance will remain a bidding process of the wealthy, wages will continue stagnating, etc.

Steam had a major glitch that gave users access to each others' accounts

Steam, the online market for PC games, experienced a major glitch on Friday.

Steam users who logged in were getting access to other users' accounts. We've also seen reports on social media that some people were able to make purchases with other users' credit cards.

In fact, simply visiting the Steam store website gave anyone access to another user's account. Valve, the company that runs Steam, shut down the store within an hour after the glitch hit. The store was operational again about an two hours later.

It's unclear what the cause was, and Valve's statement to The Verge didn't shed much light on what happened. Valve has only said the glitch was caused by an "internal error".

For those not familiar with the parlance, gene editing refers to the ability to alter the DNA of an embryo in a manner which affects the germline. The germline is defined as follows; “In biology and genetics, the germline in a multicellular organism is that population of its bodily cells that are so differentiated or segregated that in the usual processes of reproduction they may pass on their genetic material to the progeny.”

Donald Trump and Rand Paul have had frequently contentious exchanges, with Trump insulting and eventually dismissing the relevance of Paul altogether.

Rand is now considered a very marginal and uninspirational politician. Ron Paul, while not enthusiastically endorsing his son Rand's campaign, has referred to Trump as an "authoritarian" and an "establishment empty suit."

The talks culminated in the Luxembourg Agreement, which was signed on September 10, 1952, by West German Chancellor Konrad Adenauer, Israeli Foreign Minister Moshe Sharett, and World Jewish Congress President Nahum Goldmann. This agreement between the West German government, on the one hand, and the Israeli state and the Claims Conference, on the other, was historically unprecedented and had no basis or counterpart in international law.

Once When We Were Free

By Jon Rappoport

We’re so much more sensible now. We don’t live our lives as much as we arrange them and organize them. B follows A. D follows C. We take our medicine and our shots because the doctor says so.

We’re careful, because accidents happen.

We don’t say what’s on our minds a lot of the time, because other people might pass that on, and who knows? We might get into trouble.

But once upon a time, when we were young, we were free. We didn’t take any shots, and when we got sick we recovered. We were stronger than kids are now. We didn’t ask for much protection and we weren’t given much, and we survived...

Are you aware that in the United States, nearly 40% of the food produced is tossed into the trash? As it makes its way to the landfill, 795 million people in the world wonder where their next meal will come from.

It’s ridiculous – as well as disheartening, which is why activists around the planet are doing their part to help reduce food waste and feed others with the discarded scraps...

When Hillary Clinton Claims 33K Deaths Due to ‘Gun Violence’ She’s Leaving Out One Big Tell

When she’s on the campaign trail, presidential candidate Hillary Clinton touts the talking point that “33,000 people die each year due to ‘gun violence.'”

It’s an attention-grabbing claim, but the general listener could get the impression that those numbers are solely victims of mass shootings or murders. They’re not.

5 Ways Liberals Hurt The Poor

Democrats have long since realized that people who are poor and dependent on the government will vote for them, even if it is their liberal policies that created the poverty and dependency. That's why every ghetto in America is controlled lock, stock, and barrel by liberal Democrats. Unfortunately, so many destitute Americans have yet to realize that liberal policies don't fight poverty; they maintain it.

BANK OF AMERICA CENSORS JOURNALIST ON TWITTER

The founding editor of Business Insider UK, Jim Edwards, has had two tweets removed by Twitter at the request of Bank of America Merrill Lynch (BAML). Jim claims that in an e-mail from Bank of America, the bank threatened to remove the editor’s Twitter if he “kept it up.”

While this is only two tweets, there is a principle at stake. Investment banks apparently have the power to censor journalists on Twitter, simply by asking.

In the tweets Edwards had quoted a research document produced by analyst Teo Lasarte at Bank of America. One of the tweets was recoverable – which reads: “BAML’s Teo Lasarte is developing a pun-based method for analyzing auto stocks.” On Business Insider Jim Edwards continues:

Any old fool can condemn a terrorist group while it’s actively threatening and murdering people, but CNN didn’t get where it is today (the basement) by being rash and foolhardy (you know, like nearly going on air with the false announcement of a president’s death). Like a cobra with Down syndrome, CNN knows that the best time to strike is when the target is dead and motionless.

DID EX CIA DIRECTOR WILLIAM CASEY REALLY SAY THIS?

“We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false.”

An interesting topic was posted over at AboveTopSecret.com (ATS) discussing the origins of an infamous quote attributed to a CIA Director.

William Casey was the 13th CIA Director appointed by President Reagan from 1981 until he left in January 1987. Not long after his retirement he died of a brain tumor in May 1987.

During his tenure at the CIA, Casey played a large role shaping Reagan’s foreign policy – particular Reagan’s approach to the Soviet Union. Casey strongly believed that the Soviet Union was the source of most of the terrorist activity in the world.

But did former CIA Director William Casey really say these words? ATS member Sublimecraft points us to this Quora posting.

30,000 waiting to be re-housed in Porter Ranch California due to unstopable methane leak: 62 million cubic feet of methane lost into the atmosphere each day!

A court ordered SoCal Gas Company to provide temporary housing for thousands of Porter Ranch, Los Angeles, residents made sick from fumes from a massive gas leak.

An infrared camera captured the size of the gas plume that's been leaking for two months.

The court order issued on Wednesday will come as a relief to more than 2,500 families in Porter Ranch, a northwest San Fernando Valley community, who have been waiting to be relocated by SoCal Gas since the leak began spewing methane into their homes and schools on October 23.

As of Tuesday, the company had paid for temporary housing for more than 2,000 other households, according to the Los Angeles Times.

TSA HIT WITH LAWSUIT AFTER NIXING BODY SCANNER OPT OUT

The TSA has been hit with a lawsuit just days after it quietly introduced new rules that banned the ability of travelers to opt out of the agency’s controversial naked body scanners.

“In a document published earlier this month, the Department of Homeland Security outlined an update to the Advanced Imagery Technology protocols used by the TSA at US airports, adding a clause which allows officers to insist travelers go through the controversial machines,”reported SlashGear.

The federal agency now insists it has the right to “direct mandatory AIT screening for some passengers,” even if they refuse.

Activist Jonathan Corbett, who famously exposed TSA body scanners to becompletely uselessin detecting items concealed in hidden pockets, wasted no time infiling a lawsuitin an attempt to restore a traveler’s right to opt out of the scanner.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good. This almost could not happen to a more corrupt, totally useless Federal agency, and I hope the lawsuit's outcome will be favorable to Corbett.

Wow, that’s brazen. They took “file and suspend” out back and shot it dead. No warning at all.

Instead, it wound up in the fine print of the “zombie budget” Congress and the White House agreed on last week.

Americans Held Hostage in Iran Win Compensation 36 Years Later

Buried in the huge spending bill signed into law last Friday are provisions that would give each of the 53 hostages or their estates up to $4.4 million. Victims of other state-sponsored terrorist attacks such as the 1998 American Embassy bombings in East Africa would also be eligible for benefits under the law. “I had to pull over to the side of the road, and I basically cried,” said Rodney V. Sickmann, who was a Marine sergeant working as a guard at the embassy in Tehran when he was seized along with the other Americans by a mob that overran the compound on Nov. 4, 1979. “It has been 36 years, one month, 14 days, obviously, until President Obama signed the actual bill, until Iran was held accountable,” he said.

Flashback: Woman who threatened to kill Michelle Obama On Christmas Vacation likely a U.S. Federal Govt employee

Kristy Lee Roshia, the 35 year old woman arrested and charged with threatening First Lady Michelle Obama, is most likely an employee of the U.S. federal government, if documents cited by the U.S. Secret Service are accurate. Roshia, currently being held without bail in federal custody in Hawaii, was arrested Saturday December 19th less than two miles away from the house where President Obama and his family will be staying for Christmas. The rental house, which is the same one the Obamas rented last Christmas, is a 7,000 square foot beachfront home which reportedly rents for $4,000 a night. According to media reports, on November 9th of this year Roshia sent a rambling letter to the Boston Secret Service office along with photographs of herself, and included a Hawaii return address located on Kane'ohe Bay Drive.

Christmas trees lit up in Tartous and Damascus Countryside amidst religious and popular participation

24 December? 2015

Provinces, SANA – A 22 m tall Christmas tree was lit up in Safita city in Tartous province on Saturday in honor of Syria’s martyrs.

The event was attended by a Greek religious delegation currently visiting Syria and presided by Elder Elisaios, Abbot of the Holy Monastery of Simonos Petras, Mt Athos-Greece.

“We came to Syria to send a message of joy and hope to its people that the future will be better,” Elisaios said in a statement to SANA.

“We are anguished because the Syrian people have to suffer such great tragedies, and we pray to God to remove the injustice and suffering they are going through” he added.

NSA HELPED BRITISH SPIES FIND SECURITY HOLES IN JUNIPER FIREWALLS

A TOP-SECRET document dated February 2011 reveals that British spy agency GCHQ, with the knowledge and apparent cooperation of the NSA, acquired the capability to covertly exploit security vulnerabilities in 13 different models of firewalls made by Juniper Networks, a leading provider of networking and Internet security gear.

The six-page document, titled “Assessment of Intelligence Opportunity – Juniper,” raises questions about whether the intelligence agencies were responsible for or culpable in the creation of security holes disclosed by Juniper last week. While it does not establish a certain link between GCHQ, NSA, and the Juniper hacks, it does make clear that, like the unidentified parties behind those hacks, the agencies found ways to penetrate the “NetScreen” line of security products, which help companies create online firewalls and virtual private networks, or VPNs.

TSA Doesn’t Care That Its Luggage Locks Have Been Hacked

In a spectacular failure of a “back door” designed to give law enforcement exclusive access to private places, hackers have made the “master keys” for Transportation Security Administration-recognized luggage locks available to anyone with a 3D printer.

The TSA-recognized luggage locks were a much-vaunted solution to a post-9/11 conundrum: how to let people lock their luggage, on the one hand, but let the TSA inspect it without resorting to bolt cutters, on the other.

When the locks were first introduced in 2003, TSA official Ken Lauterstein described them as part of the agency’s efforts to develop “practical solutions that contribute toward our goal of providing world-class security and world-class customer service.”

Now that they’ve been hacked, however, TSA says it doesn’t really care one way or another.

Massive methane leak forces relocation of 2,500 California families

New aerial footage of the leak was also released on Wednesday by the Environmental Defense Fund, which captured the intensity of the leak by infrared camera. The video footage shows a steady, thick plume pouring into the air over a densely packed residential area. It is hard to judge the width of the plume from the video, but EDF said it is pumping out 62 million cubic feet of methane into the atmosphere each day. Methane packs 80 times the 20-year warming power of carbon dioxide.

“What you can’t see is easy to ignore. That’s why communities that suffer from pollution from oil and gas development are often dismissed by industry and regulators,” said Earthworks spokesman Alan Septoff in a statement. “Making invisible pollution visible shows the world what people in Porter Ranch have been living with every day for months.”
