The Terror We Never Hear About: former Congressional candidate plots to annihilate Muslim town

We never stop hearing about cases where the government has little to no evidence against Muslims who are charged. Yet, here’s a guy against whom evidence is overwhelming and who readily admits to his crimes and it’s nowhere to be seen on mainstream media.

article.300568A 63-year-old Signal Mountain resident and former Third District Congressional candidate charged with plotting the annihilation of a Muslim village in New York has entered into a plea agreement acknowledging his guilt.

Robert Rankin Doggart, of 183 Fern Mist Trail, Signal Mountain, is on federal bond awaiting sentencing in the case, which has drawn widespread attention in Upstate New York where the targeted community is located. He faces up to five years in federal prison.

‘Bigger role’ for US in Minsk II accords: Are you sure, Ms. Nuland?

One year into the Ukrainian crisis, Washington reveals a desire to jump on the bandwagon of the Minsk peace accords – brokered by France and Germany. Not bad news, after all, but when it comes from Victoria Nuland...

News that US Secretary of State John Kerry flew to Sochi to meet with Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov and President Putin came as only a small surprise this week. In the wake of the most impressive Victory Day celebration ever across Russia, most experts agreed that the Russia people’s vigilance held a fairly massive sway over world public opinion afterwards. Western media was not oblivious to this either.

However much of a positive this trend may be, news that the Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland and sidekick Ambassador Geoffrey Pyatt are on the loose again tends to quell hopes of peace.

Israel at center of international diplomatic storm as Vatican, FIFA, EU step up pressure

The Palestinian decision to internationalize their conflict with Israel seems to be paying off as Israel is coming under diplomatic pressure on several fronts at the same time. The Vatican decision to recognize “Palestine” as a state, an expected French-sponsored resolution to the United Nations Security Council, and the possible expulsion of Israel from FIFA, the international soccer federation, are creating the sense that Israel is losing the diplomatic battle.

The War On Cash Destroys A Small Entrepreneur

Banks are legally obligated to report any deposit of more than $10,000 to the U.S. Treasury Department. But if an individual makes several cash deposits of less than $10,000 over an unspecified period of time that total more than $10,000, then he is presumed to be a money launderer or drug trafficker who is committing the dastardly crime of structuring, that is, seeking to circumvent the bank’s reporting requirement and maintaining the privacy of his financial affairs Thus banks are also required to file “suspicious activity reports” on cash deposits of less than $10,000. Based on these reports, if one is merely suspected–not convicted–of structuring, his bank account is seized by the IRS under “civil asset forfeiture” laws, which permits seizures of money or other property suspected of being related to a crime.

Why The IRS Seized All the Money from a Country Store

Lyndon McLellan owns the L&M Convenience Mart in rural North Carolina. A few months ago, the Internal Revenue Service went to McLellan's bank and seized all the cash in his store's account.

Why?

McLellan had violated a "structuring" law by making cash deposits of under $10,000. Structuring laws are supposed to catch drug traffickers and money launderers. But small business owners can also unknowingly run afoul of these laws.

The sum, which makes Mrs. Clinton among the wealthiest of the 2016 presidential candidates, could create challenges for the former secretary of state as she tries to cast herself as a champion of everyday Americans in an era of income inequality.

Obamacare Exchanges on Life Support

At a recent White House science fair celebrating inventors, a Girl Scout who helped design a Lego-powered page-turning device asked President Obama what he had ever thought up or prototyped. Stumbling for an answer, he replied:

“I came up with things like, you know, health care.”

Ah, yes. “Health care.” Remember when the president’s signature Obamacare health insurance exchanges were going to be the greatest thing since sliced bread, the remote control, jogger strollers, Siri, the Keurig coffee maker, driverless cars and Legos all rolled into one?

The Secret Fed Paper That Advocated a "Carry Tax" on All Physical Cash

Many commentators have noted that mainstream economists are calling to do away with cash entirely.

It would be easy to scoff at these proposals as completely insane if the Fed hadn’t published a paper back in 1999 suggesting the implementation of a “carry tax” or taxing actual physical cash using an expiration date if depositors aren’t willing to spend the money.

Leading German Keynesian Economist Calls For Cash Ban

At this stage, a sane person might be tempted to call it a day on the monetary experiments, especially considering that at this point, the limits have been reached. That is, there are literally no more assets to buy and rates have hit the effective lower bound where rational actors will eschew bank deposits in favor of the mattress. But not so fast, say folks like Citi’s Willem Buiter and economist Ken Rogoff: the world could always ban cash because if you eliminate physical currency and force people to use a debit card linked to a government controlled bank account for all transactions, you can effectively centrally plan everything.

Rebels in the Elite - Cracks in the Facade

Intra-elite debate and struggles on major issues are evident in three recent and important books:

-Glenn Greenwald’s No Place to Hide (2014) on the Surveillance State.
-Thomas Piketty’s Capital in the Twenty-First Century (2014) on rising inequality.

Each of these books represents broader intellectual and cultural movements, and debate among American and Western elites on how to move forward. The conflicts are quite real.

Court keeps cellphone network ‘kill switch’ a secret

The fuss revolves around a policy called Standard Operating Procedure 303, which is “a shutdown and restoration process for use by commercial and private wireless networks in the event of a national crisis,” according to the IT Law Wiki. The Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) brought the suit after San Francisco officials blocked cellphone service to prevent a protest in 2011.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a violation of the First Amendment right to Freedom of Speech and Freedom to Assemble. There is no law that overrides those rights. There cannot be, because under the Supreme Court Decision Marbury vs Madison, laws repugnant to the Constitution are automatically null and void. Thus, some official in San Francisco pulled the plug on the cell phone system just because they wanted to. By doing so, along with violation of one of the most basic rights Americans possess, they placed those Americans in emergency situations at risk from the loss of needed communications, plus caused untold economic harm to those Americans using their cell phones for business purposes during the outage. The responsible party needs to be removed from office and made PERSONALLY financially liable for the harm caused to life and property!

If “Too-Big-to-Fail’’ Means “Too-Big-to-Jail” It Should Mean “Too-Big-to-Be” - The US needs the Iceland option

Compare the US to Iceland, a country that responded to the same banking crisis of 2008 by aggressively prosecuting and jailing its top bankers. This past February, Iceland’s Supreme Court upheld the convictions and sentences of four top executives of Kaupthing Bank, one of the country’s biggest financial institutions. Those bankers are will now be serving four-to-five-year sentences for their felonies, at least if they want to ever return to Iceland. A number of other Iceland bankers, including top executives of three of the country’s top banks, were convicted earlier and sentenced to prison terms.

How Congress Quietly Overhauled Its Insider-Trading Law

A year ago, President Obama signed the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge Act into law at a celebratory ceremony attended by a bipartisan cast of lawmakers.

"I want to thank all the members of Congress who came together and worked to get this done," he said.

The law wouldn't just outlaw trading on nonpublic information by members of Congress, the executive branch and their staffs. It would greatly expand financial disclosures and make all of the data searchable so insider trading and conflicts of interest would be easier to detect.

But on Monday, when the president signed a bill reversing big pieces of the law, the emailed announcement was one sentence long. There was no fanfare last week either, when the Senate and then the House passed the bill in largely empty chambers using a fast-track procedure known as unanimous consent.

An-2 Aircraft Feared Shot Down Over Lithuania

A Soviet-made An-2 (NATO reporting name "Colt") aircraft is feared shot down after it went missing in Lithuanian airspace while it was en route from Sweden to Lithuania on Saturday.

Lithuania has been ramping up air defense efforts in response to what it alleges are airspace violations by Russian planes. The aircraft's two pilots, both of whom have over 40 years experience flying, are missing.

"I know that they were in Lithuanian airspace and were in contact with Palanga Airport, but then the signal disappeared. Maybe the plane got shot down, maybe something else," the head of Klaipeda Airlines which owns the plane told Delfi.

Train derailment investigation widens: Did a projectile hit the windshield?

A projectile might have struck the windshield of Amtrak Train 188, just minutes before the train crashed Tuesday night, and investigators said Friday that they had called in the FBI to analyze the damage.

Officials at the National Transportation Safety Board could not say whether engineer Brandon Bostian had been struck or incapacitated by a projectile.

The surprising revelation at a news conference Friday night significantly expands the scope of the crash investigation beyond either mechanical failure or operator responsibility.

Death Sentence for Boston Bomber, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, Unsettles City He Tore Apart

To many, the death sentence almost feels like a blot on the city’s collective consciousness.

To the amazement of people elsewhere, Bostonians overwhelmingly opposed condemning the bomber, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, to death. The most recent poll, conducted last month for The Boston Globe, found that just 15 percent of city residents wanted him executed. Statewide, 19 percent did. By contrast, 60 percent of Americans wanted Mr. Tsarnaev to get the death penalty, according to a CBS News poll last month.

No one here felt sympathy for him.

This incident confirms also that "Western managers of catastrophic scenarios of the kind prefer to implement them by somebody else’s hands, using in Ukraine, and now in Macedonia, people of the countries [like Montenegro], which seduced by NATO."
"More than evident is the threat of provoked chaos in Europe-now in the Balkans; where the region still has not recovered from the bloodshed of the 1990s," the ministry said.

Food sanctions against US raise difficulties in supplying ISS crew

The embargo on supplies of US food to Russia causes problems in the supply of the crew of the International Space Station (ISS), says a quarterly report by the Energia rocket and space corporation posted on the agency’s website.
"The list of goods prohibited for import includes foodstuffs that are part of the parcels for the crew and food containers delivered from the United States and intended for delivery to the ISS by Russian spacecraft," the document says.
The imposition of the sanctions affects the fulfillment of the corporation’s contractual obligations to supply food to the ISS crew, it adds.
Russia announced a one-year ban on importing agricultural products from the United States and several other countries last August.

Sarkozy calls for creating new Schengen agreement for Europe

The principles of the operation of one single European area must be reviewed "top to bottom," and to this end the European Union member-countries should develop a fundamentally new Schengen agreement that would replace the previous one, said former French President Nicholas Sarkozy who currently heads the country’s leading opposition party, the Union for a Popular Movement.
According to Sarkozy, France is a country "open from a geographical point of view." However, the issue of regulating the migration flows is becoming more and more acute for Paris. "Of course, we will not leave people to die in the proximity of France, but one thing is to save somebody’s life and quite another - to create a system in which a fraud becomes a rule rather than an exception and which works to the detriment of French tax-payers," Sarkozy said.

Switzerland delivers water treatment chemicals to Donetsk republic as humanitarian aid

A Swiss 15-truck convoy with humanitarian aid has delivered 300 tonnes of water treatment chemicals to the city of Donetsk, the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs said in Bern.
"This is the first humanitarian convoy of its size to have crossed the contact line between the government-controlled area and that under the control of non-government forces since the armed conflict began in the region," the statement says noting that the chemicals, mainly aluminium sulphate, would be pumped into the water facilities supplying 3.5 million residents with drinking water.
Switzerland organised the transportation as "the drinking water supply in the conflict zone no longer meets health standards owing to a lack of disinfection capacities, resulting in the spread of diseases like hepatitis A."

Security researcher tells FBI he took control of a commercial airliner - even making it fly sideways - by hacking into the entertainment system

A prominent hacker and security researcher who was kicked off a United Airlines flight last month had previously admitted to the FBI that he had taken control of a plane and made it fly sideways.

Chris Roberts told a special agent earlier this year that he had repeatedly hacked planes' in-flight entertainment systems while aboard the aircraft, a search warrant application by the FBI states.

In one case, he also reportedly claimed to have overwritten the plane's Thrust Management Computer code, allowing him to issue a climb command and make the plane serve sideways.

Following the interviews with the FBI agent on February 13 and 23 and March 5 - and another in April - Roberts had two of his laptops confiscated, along with several hard drives and USB sticks.

Political solution to Syria crisis against actual US policy: American activist

US President Barack Obama is calling for a political solution to the Syrian crisis but at the same time Washington is also arming militants fighting against the government of President Bashar al-Assad, an American activist in Maryland says.

Myles Hoenig made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Saturday while commenting on US President Barack Obama’s recent comments on the Syrian conflict that has consumed tens of thousands of lives since 2011.

In an interview with Saudi-owned al-Arabiya television on Friday, Obama said there is no “military solution” to the Syrian crisis. “Ultimately a military solution is not going to be the solution.”

Earthquakes on Hawaii volcano could signal new eruption

A series of earthquakes and shifting ground on the slopes of Kilauea have scientists wondering what will happen next at one of the world's most active volcanos.

A lake of lava near the summit of Kilauea on Hawaii's Big Island had risen to a record-high level after a recent explosion. But in the past few days, the pool of molten rock began sinking, and the surface of the lava lake fell nearly 500 feet.

Meanwhile, a rash of earthquakes rattled the volcano with as many as 20 to 25 quakes per hour, and scientists' tilt meters detected that the ground was deforming.

SHOCK CLAIM: Hillary Clinton Forces Campaign Parody Taken Down

The bumper sticker was offered by Marinka Peschmann, an author who published two investigative books about the Clintons: The Whistleblower: How the Clinton White House Stayed in Power to Reemerge in the Obama White House and on the World Stage, and Following Orders: The Death of Vince Foster, Clinton White House Lawyer.

Peschmann recently posted a notice to her site:

“Note: Take down! This bumpersticker is no longer available. Hillary for America’s legal department lodged an intellectual property right’s holder trademark complaint against HILLPoP2016’s latest styles. While HILLPoP2016 thinks our H is different (the arrow faces left and is orange for instance), one must pick their battles. HILLPoP2016 respects Zazzle’s decision regarding their terms of service agreement and wishes more corporations would enforce them.”

Woman Told by Airline She Couldn't Return Text From Her Suicidal Husband, Comes Home to Find Him Dead

Karen Momsen-Evers's plane home to Milwaukee from a girls' weekend in New Orleans was about to take off when she received a text from her husband, Andy: "Karen, please forgive me for what I am about to do, I am going to kill myself." Though she desperately tried to respond, Momsen-Evers was told by flight attendants that she needed to put her phone on airplane mode immediately, TMJ 4 reports.

"I begged her, I said I'm sure somebody can make an emergency phone call, I just wanted somebody to go and try to save him," Momsen-Evers said. "Nobody helped." She spent the next two hours crying in her seat. Even when the plane reached cruising altitude and Momsen-Evers explained the situation to another flight attendant, they would not make an exception for her to make an emergency phone call. When the plane landed in Milwaukee, she was finally able to call the police. By the time she got home, she was met by officers who told her Andy was dead.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mythbusters did a show in which they showed that cell phones in fact do not interfere with the aircraft navigation systems.

Reply to a Reader’s Complaint about Anti-American Pro-Russian Bias

I recently received a sharp complaint from a reader about an assumed anti-American pro-Russian bias in my writings. The complaint gives a very good opportunity to address questions on the minds of many in the West confused by an extremely biased pro-Washington, anti-Russian bias in mainstream media coverage of Ukraine and Russia as the new demon to be fought.

First, Mr. Schneider, let me say I am an American and I am definitely not anti-American. I love my country and my fellow Americans.

What I do not love is the clique of very rich who—especially over the past three decades since the time of Reagan and Bush Senior—have step-by-step subverted the American Constitution and its guarantees of citizen rights, have destroyed prudent regulation of the health and safety of American citizens by easing safety rules of the Environmental Protection Agency to benefit companies like DuPont or Monsanto at the expense of the public.

Aipac Wants Congress to Criminalize BDS

Of all the lame-brained, lumpen-brained, hare-brained schemes emanating from Aipac’s lobby shop, this is one of the truly lamest. As Israel forms the most dangerous, aggressive, racist government in its history, Aipac thought this was a good time to remind the American people of that by conniving to amend an already contentious fast-track trade bill with a new amendment that would criminalize BDS in the U.S.

How Israel wants to restart the war in the Levant

Far from admitting defeat, Benjamin Netanyahu is planning to sabotage the agreement between Washington and Teheran which is to be signed the 30th June 2015. In order to do so, he could restart the war in Syria. His idea is to continue the work already accomplished by the Islamic Emirate in Iraq, Syria, Libya and Yemen, by applying the Wright plan and creating an independent pseudo-Kurdistan straddling Iraq and Syria.

The U.S. Debt Clock

(*My poor boss doesn't get it . You should hear him cry the blues over all the money he says the company is losing . Sixtysome back breaking hours last week , I'm zombiefied as I write this comment .
Here is an economy that is losing money like a sieve , but he's expecting to MAKE money .
We're in a sphere that is falling like the Times Square New Years Eve Ball , so even if you think your money is going up , or if my boss thought he was making money , working us to the bone , or even if I beli~eved that all that work was paying off , the economy it appears to be happening in is nose diving .
He's a great guy , and the job , as much of a slave condition an environment as it seems , keeps me occupied , but still , I haven't the chutzpa to show him the debt clock , so maybe he can see why he's been so heavy on the 'Pepto' , lately . )

American Natives Ask UN to End U.S. “Occupation”

However, things have to be disturbingly wrong when these Americans turn to the dictators club…er United Nations of all places to complain about the United States… Oh, the sad, sad irony. (read more)

The United States of Injustice

None whatever exists. Guilt by accusation suffices for anyone Washington wants convicted.

Innocence is no defense. Juries are pressured to convict. Evidence when absent is invented. Lack of proof doesn't matter.

Thousands of political prisoners languish in America's gulag - at home and abroad. Thousands more are imprisoned for misdemeanors too minor to matter - ones for which just societies wouldn't tolerate incarceration.

Michael Walsh: Heroes Hang When Traitors Triumph

A professional writer since 1975, Michael Walsh provides international media with articles covering human, global and political issues. He joins us to speak on the subject matter of his latest books, “Heroes Hang When Traitors Triumph” and “Heroes of the Reich.” In the first hour, Mike gives an overview of the negative propaganda surrounding the period of the Russian Revolution to the end of Nazi Germany. We consider why it is essential to look back to the stories of the defeated during this time frame when scrutinizing the post-WWII reconstruction era controlled by the banking system and mainstream media. Mike takes us back to the story of the iconic Lawrence of Arabia, a highly principled man who was deeply opposed to a war with Germany and ultimately removed from the equation.
