"What a man believes upon grossly insufficient evidence is an index into his desires - desires of which he himself is often unconscious. If a man is offered a fact which goes against his instincts, hewill scrutinize it closely, and unless the evidence is overwhelming, he will refuse to believe it. If, on the other hand, he is offered something which affords a reason for acting in accordance to his instincts, he will accept it even on the slightest evidence. The origin of myths is explained in this way." -- Bertrand Russell, philosopher - "Roads to Freedom"

FLASHBACK BEX ALERT - Islamic State operating in Mexico just 8 miles from U.S. border

The Islamic State terror group is operating a camp in the northern Mexican state of Chihuahua, just eight miles from the U.S. border, Judicial Watch reported Tuesday.

Citing sources that include a “Mexican Army field grade officer and a Mexican Federal Police Inspector,” the conservative watchdog group reported that the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL, is organizing only a few miles from El Paso, Texas, in the Anapra neighborhood of Juárez and in Puerto Palomas.

Judicial Watch sources said that “coyotes” working for the notorious Juarez Cartel are smuggling Islamic State terrorists across the U.S. border between the New Mexico cities of Santa Teresa and Sunland Park, as well as “through the porous border between Acala and Fort Hancock, Texas.”

Saudi Arabia wants US to kill 9/11 bill, threatens to dump US assets worth $750 bn

Saudi Arabia appears to be blackmailing the US, saying it would sell off American assets worth a 12-digit figure sum in dollars if Congress passes a bill allowing the Saudi government to be held responsible for the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Blackmail is perhaps too strong a word (although the western media will use it to demonize Saudi Arabia). I think "self defense" is more apt. Saudi Arabia knows that the US links 9-11 to every nation it wants to invade. First it was Afghanistan, then Iraq (after which George W. Bush admitted on TV Iraq had nothing to do with 9-11).

Saudi Arabia now finds themselves in the croshairs of the US war machine!

To find out if you are being lied to, look for what should be there and isn't, and what isn't there is a motive for Saudi Arabia to attack the United States on 9-11. Saudi Arabia has grown very rich off of the United States with the petrodollar deal. And they have invested much of that money in the United States. Why would Saudi Arabia do anything that would risk having the United States confiscate that money or end the lucrative petrodollar arrangement? Especially without some compelling reason? And as the Saudi threat confirms, if Saudi Arabia really did want to harm the United States they would not need to crash airplanes into buildings, all they need do is take their investment funds back and the US economy would implode. The resulting economic devastation would make the loss of the World Trade Towers seem like a minor inconvenience in comparison! And it would be perfectly legal for Saudi Arabia to do so.

And let us be honest, it wasn't Saudis who were arrested for cheering and clapping while the towers came crashing down, it was Mossad agents. Israeli owned companies like Odigo received advance warning of the attack. Saudi companies did not.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice (or thrice) shame on me!

Scientists have published the first images of what the human brain looks like under the influence of LSD, one of the most powerful drugs ever created.

What’s more, the new study by Imperial College London explores what researchers say are potential medical uses for the illegal psychedelic known as acid, including treating mental health disorders.
***
“For brain researchers, studying how psychedelic drugs such as LSD alter the ‘normal’ brain state is a way to study the biological phenomenon that is consciousness,” David Nutt, a neuropsychopharmacologist at Imperial College London and senior researcher on the study, told the science journal Nature.

“We ultimately would also like to see LSD deployed as a therapeutic tool.”

It’s on: Tensions between Trump and the GOP escalate in public fight

Tensions between the Republican Party and its own front-runner erupted into a full-blown public battle as top party officials rebuked Donald Trump on Friday for alleging that the GOP primary system was “rigged” against him.

The dispute, which has been simmering for days, centers on Trump’s failure to win any delegates last weekend in Colorado, which selected its 34 delegates at a party convention rather than a primary attended by voters. All went to Trump’s chief rival, Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas.

Nemtsov & The End Of The British Empire

The February 28th, 2015 assassination of Russian opposition leader and former Deputy Prime Minister Boris Nemtsov as he crossed a bridge near the Kremlin will surely be well-utilized by Western lapdog media in their ongoing effort to slander Vladimir Putin and Russia.

But any thinking person will know that this professional killing was not carried out by Putin, who has vowed a thorough investigation of the incident. It was likely another in a series of desperate moves by the British MI6, who work for the Crown and the Rothschild-led City of London bankers.

The assassination occurred just three days after Britain announced it would send advisors to train Ukraine’s military, which in recent weeks was routed by Donbass revolutionaries, forcing the Ukrainian regime into signing the Minsk Peace Agreement.

UCLA Law Prof's Long Legal Fight Over Access To California Bar Admissions Data Headed To Trial

It was a decade ago when a UCLA law professor known for his critique of affirmative action first asked the State Bar of California to give him a trove of data on people who applied to practice law in the state.

Professor Richard H. Sander still hasn’t gotten the state bar to turn over the information he wants. But his long legal effort in pursuit of it may have reached a turning point this week when a judge said his case could go to trial over the objections of the state bar.

Mr. Sander is the academic most associated with the “mismatch” theory about affirmative action, the idea that racial and other kinds of admissions preferences can have unintended consequences by putting students in academic settings for which they’re not prepared.

Facebook Employees Asked Mark Zuckerberg If They Should Try to Stop a Donald Trump Presidency

But what’s exceedingly important about this question being raised—and Zuckerberg’s answer, if there is one—is how Facebook now treats the powerful place it holds in the world. It’s unprecedented. More than 1.04 billion people use Facebook. It’s where we get our news, share our political views, and interact with politicians. It’s also where those politicians are spending a greater share of their budgets.

And Facebook has no legal responsibility to give an unfiltered view of what’s happening on their network.

“Facebook can promote or block any material that it wants,” UCLA law professor Eugene Volokh told Gizmodo. “Facebook has the same First Amendment right as the New York Times. They can completely block Trump if they want. They block him or promote him.”

As it stands, a major disconnect is also in effect. The House of Saud is busy spinning the need for austerity at home even as it is now positioned as the world’s third-largest spender on weapons, ahead of Russia.

CDC likely fabricating link between Zika virus and microcephaly cases; admits people self-immunize against Zika and that 'no single piece of evidence provides conclusive proof'

Despite the media frenzy over Zika, the CDC admits on its own website that people self-immunize against the virus.

"People usually don't get sick enough to go to the hospital, and they very rarely die of Zika," says the CDC's Zika information page. "For this reason, many people might not realize they have been infected. Once a person has been infected, he or she is likely to be protected from future infections."

In other words, a Zika virus infection usually produces no symptoms, requires no hospitalization and builds self-immunity against future Zika exposure. The CDC refuses to describe it this way, of course, because there's a fortune to be made spreading Zika scare stories and selling Zika vaccines to people who largely don't need them. The visual shock factor of babies with shrunken heads makes the media frenzy an automatic success, even if those shrunken heads were caused by something else entirely.

THE REVOLT OF THE DEBT SLAVES HAS STARTED

If we could just get consumers to borrow more so that they spend money they don’t have on things they don’t need in order to boost GDP and corporate profits, all would be fine. That’s the current meme among economists. Since 68.5% of US GDP is related to personal consumption expenditures, boosting consumer spending is seen as crucial. Since wages at the lower 75% are crummy and have not been rising enough to keep up with inflation, the only other way to prod consumers into spending more is to bamboozle them into borrowing more and blowing this moolah instantly.

Clinton said, “We know the attack in Libya had nothing to do with the film. It was a planned attack – not a protest.” Kandil responded, “You’re not kidding. Based on the information we saw today we believe that group that claimed responsibility for this is affiliated with al-Qaeda.”

As Clinton Backs Closer US-Israel Ties, Sanders Criticizes Settlements And 2014 Assault On Gaza

As Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders prepare for tonight’s debate in Brooklyn, one issue expected to come up is the Israel-Palestine conflict. New York state, which holds its primary on Tuesday, is home to the largest Jewish population in the world outside of Israel. Sanders made headlines recently when he mistakenly told the New York Daily News editorial board that 10,000 civilians died in Israel’s assault on Gaza.

Breaking: The GOP Made A Huge Announcement… People Will Be FURIOUS!

It was only yesterday that a top RNC official announced that conservative businessman Donald Trump could secure the nomination with fewer than 1,237 delegates before the RNC convention later this summer in Cleveland, Ohio.

Is that a rule change? Hardly, but Randy Evans was assuming that it was likely Trump would win the first ballot with 1,000+ delegates.

Now, the RNC is signaling to the political establishment that it’s ready to accept Trump as the nominee, and they are warning leaders not to mess with the convention rules in a last minute attempt to “steal” the election. Peter Feaman, another RNC committeeman who is on the powerful Rules Committee, made the announcement on a recent conference call. He noted that looming suggested changes to the convention would make it look like they are rigging the process…

The debate, broadcast on CNN, is likely the last time the pair will meet. The negotiations over the debate itself played out publicly, with the typically behind-the-scenes dealing becoming a proxy fight for the Democratic Party itself. Officials at the Democratic National Committee were exasperated by the whole process and were only half-heartedly considering adding more debates between the two warring candidates.

BEX ALERT - Research shows — yet again — that there’s no scientific debate about climate change

It's a well-known and widely cited statistic: 97 percent of scientific experts agree that human-caused climate change is real. The consensus has been supported by numerous studies — and yet the idea that the statistic is made up, or wrong, is still a common position among climate doubters and a major tool used to foster public uncertainty about climate change.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Washington Post should at least wait until the snow (which is still falling out west as I type this) to melt before flinging this particular brand of manure around.

As long as the WP is regurgitating old lies, please tell us the one about how Saddam had nuclear weapons again' we just LOVE that one!

Now, setting aside the fact that the methodology by which that 97% claim was arrived at has been discredited, I would remind people that when Galileo was trying to demonstrate that the Earth orbited the sun, 97% of the scientists of his day would have disagreed with him. Obviously, that 97% was wrong.

There is a condemnation of this idea of consensus in Ibsen's "An Enemy of the People" that goes (I am paraphrasing) "The majority is not always right. Indeed the majority is usually wrong, because before the majority can be right, one man must be right, and while he stands alone in the truth the majority is wrong." See Galileo above.

More recently, Michael Crichton, in his book "State of Fear", commented "Science is not consensus and consensus is not science!"

Last year, National Geographic ran an article bemoaning that people do not trust science; that they are unwilling to accept as unquestionable truth anything said by a paid lackey in a white laboratory coat (the 21st Century version of a priest's robes) .

But there are reasons not to simply trust what a scientist says.

Alchemy, for one.

Phlogiston Chemistry, for another.

Prior to the 14th Century Astronomers thought the Earth was the center of the universe, because, well, that's what the church wanted, and spent hundreds of years of scientific research on the theory of Epicycles, trying to reconcile the Earth centered model with the observed motions of the planets. Epicycles hold the record for longest running scientific goof in history!

17th Century doctors thought rubbing chicken dung into your scalp would cure baldness! They also thought leeches sucked disease out of patients.

18th Century Geologists thought the Earth was 6000 years old, because, well, that's what the church wanted!vPrior to the 1950s, scientists thought proteins carried our heredity.

Until the 19th Century, doctors thought infection was caused by bad air, from which we get the term "Malaria."

Scientists claimed cigarettes were good for you up until the 1950s. They even had a machine to pump tobacco smoke into your anus; the origin of the phrase "blowing smoke up your a**!"

Until 2005, doctors thought ulcers were caused by stress.

National Geographic should not be questioning why people do not trust science after its own 1999 "Piltdown Chicken" scandal!

Science is not perfect. Science does make mistakes. The beauty of science is supposed to be that they admit it, not use the label of "science" like a modern religious icon to push agendas onto people! Anyone who says the "Science is settled" is not being scientific, they are being propagandistic!

Religious leaders say "trust us."

Politicians say "trust us."

The Washington Post says "trust us."

But science is not religion, politics, or mass media.

Science is reproducibility and independent verification of results, something notoriously lacking in the claims of human-caused global warming.

Back on March 20, 2000, the UK Independent, a newspaper (much like the Washington Post) ran the headline story "Snowfalls are now a thing of the past", describing how we would all have to describe or show pictures to our children of what it was like to have a white winter, because the CONSENSUS was that the warming world would make snow a rarity. The Earth has had several record-setting winters since then. Real scientists (meaning those who have not sold their integrity for generous research grants from the promoters of a carbon tax) would acknowledge that the real world did not match the predictions in those computer models, and would, as they say, go back to the drawing board.

Far form the claimed 97% consensus, virtually every climatologist not in the pay of the carbon tax people acknowledge that the dominant control over climate on Earth is th sun, which is entering a period of reduced activity; a repeat of the Maunder Minimum, and bringing with it, a repeat of the Little Ice Age that chilled the Earth from 1300 and 1870.

But global warming was never science. It is a political agenda, to push for a carbon tax and more control over our lives, and a little thing like reality should never be allowed to stand in the way of another grab for our wallets.

So it is that we have the Washington Post, ever faithful servant of the powers that be, and unrepentant over its telling about Saddam's nukes, continuing to spout the approved fairy tales while winter lingers and the scent of manure wafts through the air!

The Panama Papers are a drop in the ocean of offshore tax havens. In total, between $7 trillion and $32 trillion is stashed across the world in around 80 locations. The Panama law firm Mossack Fonseca is said to be the fourth largest provider of offshore legal services, assisting elites to create shell companies where they can hide their money. Mossack Fonseca’s director said the breach was a “successful but limited hack,” in an interview with Reuters.

'A Heavy Penalty...for Making Money' - 50th Anniversary of the Beatles Classic 'Taxman'

2016 marks the 50th anniversary of "Taxman," the classic Beatles song protesting high taxes.

The song was written by George Harrison and released in 1966 on the album "Revolver." In "The Beatles Anthology" documentary, Harrison explains the origin of the song: “In those days we paid 19 shillings and sixpence [96p] out of every pound, and with supertax and surtax and tax-tax it was ridiculous - a heavy penalty to pay for making money. That was a big turn-off for Britain. Anybody who ever made any money moved to America or somewhere else.”

Is Hillary Clinton more dangerous than Donald Trump?

Actor Susan Sarandon recently caused a panic when she revealed her potential unwillingness to vote for Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton in a general election matchup with likely Republican nominee Donald Trump.

Sarandon was echoing an attitude shared by many supporters of Clinton’s Democratic opponent, Bernie Sanders, who say they will not vote for Clinton even if it means Trump becoming president of the United States.

In response, the establishment lost its collective mind.

There was confusion after the acquisition whether Kiva would continue providing DCs with Kiva robots. Although Kiva said that they would continue selling their technology to other retailers it soon became clear that Amazon was taking all Kiva's production and that, at some future date, Kiva would stop supporting their existing client base and focus entirely on Amazon - which happened in April 2015 when Amazon renamed Kiva to Amazon Robotics and encouraged prospective users of Kiva technology to let Amazon Robotics and Amazon Services provide fulfillment within Amazon warehouses using Amazon robots.

Netanyahu Claimed That New Building Plans Wouldn't Expand Israeli Settlements; Aerial Photos Prove Otherwise

Responding to a report in Thursday's Haaretz that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had approved the construction in West Bank Jewish settlements of hundreds of new housing units, the Prime Minister's Office issued a statement denying the report, saying that other than the settlement of Ganei Modi'in, "almost all of the approvals are designed to upgrade existing structures," rather than new construction, as reported.

However a review of the relevant plans, as well as aerial photos taken of the sites involved, reveal that the statement from Netanyahu's office is not entirely accurate. For example, in the settlement of Nokdim, south of Bethlehem, some 70 new housing units were approved.

Canadian Born Ted Cruz fools a lazy [or corrupt] court to continue his quest for the presidency

A very complicated back story, which shows Ted Cruz's father to be a bigamist, among other things, and his mother to be a globe-trotting citizenship-renouncing serial marriage partner, establishes Ted Cruz is not a natural born citizen of the U.S.

Doug Casey: The Real Problem is Government

I give a good number of speeches each year. For some time I've asked audiences a question: "What useful purpose does the U.S. government serve?" I do that not to be challenging or provocative, but to actually find out if anyone else can think of a useful purpose the government serves. The question at first shocks, then amuses and then perplexes almost everyone because it is both so obvious and outrageous that no one ever thinks of asking it. Most people accept the institution of government because it has always been there; they have always assumed it was essential. People do not question its existence, much less its right to exist.

OUTFRONT MEDIA DISHONORS USS LIBERTY VETS AND FRIENDS

We placed this billboard in New Bedford, MA, to honor USS Liberty veterans and to help them and their families get the respect and help they deserve.

But Israel partisans complained, one threatening to take his business elsewhere, so the billboard company reneged on their contract and took the billboard down two weeks early.

Now we’re asking others to SHARE THIS IMAGE to honor these men and their 34 shipmates who never returned. The Liberty is the most decorated crew since WWII. honorlibertyvets.org

PLEASE CONTACT THE BILLBOARD COMPANY, Outfront Media, and ask CEO Jeremy Male to join us in honoring these courageous American veterans

Webmaster's Commentary: 


This is the billboard in question. All it says is that Israel attacked the USS Liberty, which is a matter of historical fact. What Israel wants (and has always wanted) is for the world to forget the crimes they commit, so that they may commit more with impunity.

We will have a representative from the USS Liberty Billboard team, Daniel McGowen, on the radio show nest Tuesday.

Meanwhile, when you contact Outfront Media, tell them you are boycotting all products you see on their billboards, and you are informing those clients that you are boycotting their products precisely because they advertise with Outfront!

That should shake them up!

‘Not aimed at Russia’: State Dept. contradicts Pentagon on US missile defense expansion goals

The US State Department has refused to admit Washington is seeking to boost its ballistic and cruise missile capabilities against perceived “Russian aggression” after the Pentagon clearly named Moscow as one of the threats that need to be contained.

Speaking before US lawmakers on Wednesday, Principal Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Policy Brian McKeon said the US air defense system needs to be strengthened because Russia allegedly continues to violate the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF).

“Russia is making significant investments in cruise missiles, including a cruise missile that violates the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty, which eliminated an entire class of US and Russian missiles nearly three decades ago,” McKeon told the Senate Armed Services Subcommittee.

US anti-encryption law is so 'braindead' it will outlaw file compression

"This is the most braindead piece of legislation I've ever seen," Schneier – who has just been appointed a Fellow of the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard – told The Reg. "The person who wrote this either has no idea how technology works or just doesn't care."

He pointed out that it isn't just cryptographic code that would be affected by this poorly written legislation. Schneier, like pretty much everyone, uses lossy compression algorithms to reduce the size of images for sending via email but – as it won't work in reverse and add back the data removed – this code could be banned by the law, too. Files that can't be decrypted on demand to their original state, and files that can't be decompressed back to their exact originals, all look the same to this draft law.

Even deleted data could be covered, he opined. Are software companies to put in place mechanisms to retrieve any and all deleted information? It could be inferred from the bill as it stands.
