The World Rebukes Netanyahu

In a rare rebuke to his bullying, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu failed to stop the United States and five other world powers from reaching an agreement to constrain but not eliminate Iran’s nuclear program. Yet, Netanyahu still is dominating how the U.S. public and congressional debate is being framed, with Iran accused of regional “aggression” in four countries.

There is little truth and much exaggeration to Netanyahu’s depiction of what is going on in the Middle East. Yet, the U.S. mainstream media mindlessly reprises Netanyahu’s falsehoods...

Netanyahu’s reference to “Iran’s aggression,” which is now becoming a conventional-wisdom talking point in Official Washington, was curious since Iran has not invaded another country for centuries. In 1980, Saddam Hussein’s Iraq – at the urging of Saudi Arabia – invaded Iran. But Iran has not invaded any of the four countries that Netanyahu cited.

Why Palestinians Fight Back - The Logic of Life and Death in Gaza

Another row is brewing between Israel and the Palestinian Resistance Movement, Hamas, over the release of Avraham Mengitsu, an Israeli citizen who, according to Israeli military sources, ‘slipped into Gaza’ on September 7, 2014.

The circumstances of Mengitsu’s entry into Gaza remain unclear, especially since Hamas’ political leader, Khaled Mashaal, denied that the military wing of Hamas is holding the Israeli citizen.

Greece as a Euro ‘Economic Protectorate’

With Greece having agreed late last week to virtually all the Euro finance ministers’ prior demands for concessions, Euro ministers meeting in Brussels over the weekend, July 11-12, were expected to focus on discussing the terms for Greece’s debt restructuring in exchange for the latest Greek concessions. That is what Greek negotiators apparently expected—i.e. before the ministers’ hardline German-led faction raised further demands on Greece and ‘moved the negotiating goalposts’ yet again, to use a sports analogy, by proposing even more onerous requirements for a deal at Saturday’s July 11 finance ministers meeting.

A Nation Torn: Greece Grapples With 'Humiliating' Austerity Deal

"The scene in Athens is explosive," King's College London professor and Syriza central committee member Stathis Kouvelakis wrote for Jacobin Wednesday afternoon.

Both in and outside of Greek Parliament, tensions are running high.

A largely peaceful anti-austerity rally was disrupted at one point by an hour-long clash between anti-austerity protesters and police, leading to about 50 arrests.

India ponders home-baked chips for defence and nuke plants

India is reportedly pondering a new policy that would see only home-baked silicon used in its military, space program and atomic energy industry.

Sources have told the Times of India that government officials have raised the idea with representatives of the three industries mentioned above. Just why is open to speculation. Russia's decision to replace x86 CPUs with ARM silicon offers one explanation because the exploits of Edward Snowden mean the nation fears back doors in chips designed or built in the USA.

AIPAC: Anti-Iranian Propaganda at Congress

There is no evidence re the leading state sponsor slur, but let's not get distracted by it. How do tougher inspections than ever faced by any country FACILITATE anything other than Iran's ability to refute slander and libel? The inspections worked in Iraq. Inspections work very well. The only reason anything is missing from these inspections is past US resistance to universal standards that would have required the US to face surprise inspections itself, and U.S. abuse of inspections in Iraq to spy on and seek to overthrow the Iraqi government.

California Enacts Vaccine Law That Forces Parents to Choose Between Human Rights and Civil Rights

From flash to bang, it took the politically powerful corporate, medical trade, and government lobbyists just six months this year to gut the human right to informed consent to medical risk taking and the civil right to a school education in California.

They did it by enacting a new law (SB 277) signed by Governor Jerry Brown on June 29, 2015 that denies parents the legal right to file a personal belief exemption to vaccination for religious and conscientious beliefs so their children can attend school.

In order to sign the bill into law, Governor Brown had to abandon his long-standing legislative record as a champion of parental and religious rights and school education.

The deal includes tough reforms and unpopular measures that European creditors have imposed on the people of Greece.

Nuclear Agreement With Iran — Paul Craig Roberts

Washington’s issue with Iran has never been Iran’s nuclear energy program. The notion pushed by the neoconservatives that Iran only had a nuclear energy program (5% uranium enrichment) in order to hide a nuclear weapons program (95+% enrichment) was always a cover for Washington’s real opposition to Iran and Washington’s real agenda.

Obama’s Latest Gun Control Scam

"Who really thinks that a top-down approach to controlling weapons will be any more effective than Prohibition was in the early 20th Century or the war on drugs has been today?" -- GOA's Erich Pratt in an upcoming USA Today oped

Background Checks are failing miserably. The Obama Administration is redoubling its efforts to clamp down on your Second Amendment rights.

The FBI Director recently said that a flaw in the NICS system allowed Dylann Roof to purchase the gun he used to kill nine people in South Carolina.

In the minds of the collective Left, this means we "need" more money and more names to be fed into the NICS background check system.

Germany Never Intended For Greece To Stay In The Euro

There never was going to be any deal. All along, Germany has been seeking to establish conditions that would never be met so that they could force Greece out of the eurozone. But the Germans had to do this subtly so that they would end up looking “reasonable” and would not turn the rest of the eurozone against them. So why does Germany want to get rid of Greece? Well, to be honest, it is because the Germans are sick and tired of paying for Greek mistakes. In Germany, there is an obsession with having a balanced budget.

Philadelphia police officer charged after being shot

A Philadelphia police officer was officially charged today with criminal conspiracy and obstruction, among other things.

The charges against 48-year-old Robert Penn stem from an incident in which Penn was shot in Overbrook Park in March 2014.

According to authorities, Penn was shot while off-duty as he arrived home after completing his shift.

Prosecutors say Penn asked his former brother-in-law Charles Mays, who is also charged, to call the Philadelphia Daily News.

Investigators claim Penn paid Mays to call the newspaper and anonymously implicate Penn's current wife as having involvement in the shooting.

Obamacare Was Supposed To Kill Medicare Advantage. It Only Made It Stronger.

Critics immediately seized on the merry-go-round of Washington — how another top White House official has found a job with the lobbyists she used to negotiate with.

“Is there a revolving-door emoji?” NPR’s Jacob Goldstein ruefully tweeted.

But I think there’s a very telling line, buried near the bottom of the Times‘ 798-word story.

“Asked about her priorities, Mr. Tavenner said she wanted to protect Medicare Advantage, the program under which private insurers manage care for more than 30 percent of the 55 million beneficiaries of Medicare.”

There’s a reason why private insurers care so much about Medicare Advantage: It’s arguably their hottest market right now.

If you used the desktop version of TurboTax during the most recent tax filing season and backed up your return online, you may want to make sure you have a copy of it stored on your computer.

Intuit, the maker of TurboTax tax preparation software, has notified some desktop customers that it is discontinuing a service that allowed them to store a copy of their return on TurboTax’s cloud system. (Desktop customers install the tax software on their own computer, by buying a CD-ROM or a download, rather than preparing their returns on the TurboTax website.)

Users have until July 21 to gain access to their tax returns on the cloud and resave them on their own computer if they need to do so.

The mission was part of a test series for the Naval Integrated Fire Control - Counter Air (NIFC-CA) programme. NIFC-CA is designed to connect US Navy ships and airborne sensors into a single network.

For years, Puerto Rico used this money to prop up its failing economy, pay government bills, and fund social service programs.

Republicans hate the Iran nuclear deal because it means we won't bomb Iran

We ran out of the desert camo but here are two bright da-glo orange jumpsuit from the CIA's torture centers.

But We The People remember the lies about stolen incubators that tricked us into the first invasion of Iraq.

We The People remember the lies about Saddam's nuclear weapons that tricked us into the second invasion of Iraq.

We The People remember how only a year ago the government tried to trick us into war with Syria with more lies about poison gas.

We The People remember how there weren't really torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin or a Spanish mine in Havana Harbor, but how there really WERE weapons on board the Lusitania.

In short, We The People remember all the lies, frauds, and deceptions used to trick us into wars of conquest, to send our young people out to die in wars created out of thin air by and for the money-junkies. I think it is time that we have a new rule in America; that those who want war are the first to the front lines. You are all splendidly brave with the lives of other peoples' children. Let's see the true measure of your courage and commitment to war.

It is not alleged that Elliott threatened Ms. Guthrie or Ms. Reilly in any way, nor is it alleged that he sexually harassed them.

The original source of the arrest came when Ms. Guthrie tweeted that she wanted to “sic the Internet” on a video game programmer who created a game in which virtual people punched a feminist. Guthrie contacted employers to tell them not to hire the programmer and said she wanted "hatred on the Internet to impact his real-life experience."

Sanctuary cities beyond federal control, DHS chief Jeh Johnson admits

Facing lawmakers for the first time since the slaying of Kathryn Steinle, a 32-year-old killed while out walking with her father, Mr. Johnson said he’s made personal appeals to San Francisco to rethink its refusal to let police cooperate with federal immigration agents, and will try again in the wake of the killing.

But he declined to criticize sanctuary cities themselves, and told Congress not to try to pass laws forcing cooperation, saying it could conflict with the Constitution, and it won’t win over the hearts of reluctant communities.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, basically Jeh Johnson is saying that cities no longer have to recognize Federal Laws. Like gun control, maybe? Or banning GMO labels? Banning various flags? Forcing companies to provide snooping back doors? Or mandating vaccines? Or any unfunded mandate for that matter? Or ignoring the recent Supreme Court decision on Gay marriage?

Mind you I am ll in favor of the Federal Government going back to its original Constitutional limits (especially that enclave clause), but I wanted to point out the hypocrisy of an administration that has become the most intrusive into state and local rights suddenly deciding they cannot interfere with Sanctuary Cities' right to self-determination.

While Zharkova and her team maintain that things will be extra chilly during this period of decreased solar activity, others are not so convinced, because believe it or not, humans actually have a bigger impact on Earth’s climate than the Sun does.

The ordinary people of Canada were opposed to slavery which is why Canada became the terminus of the underground railroad.

By dumping so many uncovered short contracts into the futures market, an artificial increase in “paper gold” is created, and this increase in supply drives down the price.

Hillary Clinton's Refusal to Reinstate Glass-Stegall

Hillary Clinton won’t propose reinstating a bank break-up law known as the Glass-Steagall Act – at least according to Alan Blinder, an economist who has been advising Clinton’s campaign. “You’re not going to see Glass-Steagall,” Blinder said after her economic speech Monday in which she failed to mention it. Blinder said he had spoken to Clinton directly about Glass-Steagall.

This is a big mistake.

It’s a mistake politically because people who believe Hillary Clinton is still too close to Wall Street will not be reassured by her position on Glass-Steagall. Many will recall that her husband led the way to repealing Glass Steagall in 1999 at the request of the big Wall Street banks.

It’s a big mistake economically because the repeal of Glass-Steagall led directly to the 2008 Wall Street crash, and without it we’re in danger of another one.

The future of agriculture in Russia won't involve genetically-modified organisms (GMOs), says the country's Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich. In order to preserve the quality and integrity of its food supply, Russia plans to stick with growing methods that protect the soil and boost yields naturally, a move that Dvorkovich says will make his country's food among the "cleanest in the world."

The Growing Anti-White Agenda; Obama’s Overt Cleansing of White America; Rebel Flag Desecrated

“This is another great example where the media creates hysteria about the evils of white people, ignoring the fact that 85% of interracial crime is black on white,” Dr. Kevin B. MacDonald, editor of The Occidental Quarterly, pointed out. “They then use this to advance their laundry list of liberal and leftist causes—gun control, uprooting tradition, particularly in the South and generally creating the idea that somehow whites who identify as white and seek to advance white interests are a huge danger to society.”

Texas Launches Gold-backed Bank, Challenging Federal Reserve

The State of Texas is setting up a gold-backed bank that will allow depositors to bypass the controversial Federal Reserve System and its fiat currency in banking and commerce, according to the state representative who authored the recently enacted law. Under the measure, passed overwhelmingly by lawmakers and signed in mid-June by Republican Governor Greg Abbott, Lone Star State officials will establish and operate the Texas Bullion Depository for anyone who would like to deposit and trade in precious metals. The implications are as big as Texas.

GAZA ~~ A WINDOW TO HELL

Spending the day of 17 August in Khuzaa was like peering through a window to hell. But what we witnessed in the landscape of apocalyptic oblivion paled in comparison to the experience described to me by two Palestine Red Crescent volunteers who had attempted to break through the Israeli military cordon during the siege of the town.

Twenty-five-year-old Ahmed Awad and 24-year-old Ala’a Alkusofi arrived at the edge of Khuzaa at a time when Red Cross ambulance crews refused to travel anywhere near the town. They said they had come to collect the body of a man whom soldiers had lashed to a tree by both arms and shot in the leg. When they arrived at the site, the soldiers ordered the driver of their ambulance, Muhammed Abadla, to exit the vehicle. When he obliged, they told him to walk five meters forward and switch on a flashlight. As soon as he flicked the light on, the soldiers shot him in the chest and killed him.

Grexit or Jubilee? How Greek Debt Can Be Annulled

The crushing Greek debt could be canceled the way it was made – by sleight of hand. But saving the Greek people and their economy is evidently not in the game plan of the Eurocrats.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Because then every other member of the EU (and the US) would demand the same thing. The debt is imaginary in the first place. It is money that does not exist and never did. It is all make-believe and we refuse to believe the fairy tale any longer! That is why the money-junkies are so afraid right now.

They're Trying To Shut Down 'The Ark' - Canada's Largest Private Survival Bunker Was Featured In 'End Of The World - How To Survive Armageddon' - More Survivalists Under Attack!

Back in 1980, a Canadian man by the name of Bruce Beach put together 42 school buses which he buried underneath 14' of ground and 2' of concrete, creating Canada's largest private survival shelter, a shelter which could house 500 people and a shelter which the fire department there is now attempting to shut down. Beach's 'Ark' was featured in the 12 minute video 'End Of The World - How To Survive Armageddon' seen in the 2nd video below. Why are so many survivalists under attack? According to a story from Offgrid Survival, it's the demonization of 'self reliance, patriotism and freedom'.

Feds Cry Wolf, Again

As Americans prepared to celebrate Independence Day, their government did its best to spoil the party with ominous terrorism warnings. No such attacks were even attempted, so far as we know. In the maniacal mind of FBI Director James Comey, the lack of attacks is simply evidence that his agency disrupted them. His agency claimed to have made ten arrests before the holiday.

This raises multiple questions. Why has the FBI said nothing about these alleged arrests? Whom did they arrest, on what evidence, and what criminal charges followed? We don't know and the FBI won't say.

Israel prevents Palestinians in Jerusalem from getting water

"The water crisis in the neighbourhoods behind the Wall is due to continuous cuts of water supplies, which sometimes last three weeks," said the association. It pointed out that the Israeli water authority does not name the Palestinian neighbourhoods behind the Wall, but refers to them as "every unlicensed site". This might include many other Arab neighbourhoods in Israel, the association warned.

Based on this policy, the Israeli water authority does not supply "enough water that meets quality standards" to the Arab residents in these areas. It also adopts "illegal and arbitrary" ways of deciding consumption prices and collecting money.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, Israel is charging the Palestinians for the water they don't get?!?

Harry Reid’s brother pleads no contest to 2 misdemeanors in DUI case

Reid was arrested at gunpoint about midday Feb. 2, after a Nevada Highway Patrol trooper reported finding him sitting in a black SUV on a U.S. Highway 95 median near Searchlight.

An arrest report alleged that Reid tried to drive away with the trooper clinging to the side of the vehicle and then punched the trooper after the officer managed to reach across the steering wheel, shift the vehicle into park and remove the keys.

The trooper reported that Reid continued to fight until a National Park Service ranger arrived as backup and Reid was handcuffed.

A gun was later found beneath the center console of the SUV, which led to the weapon charge because Reid had been drinking.

Pope Francis, Alison Weir and the Sanhedrin

Alison Weir has recently joined the long list of Goyim who have been charged by the Palestinian Solidarity Movement's Sanhedrin Court. Alison, however, should cheer up, Pope Francis has also been charged in a Sanhedrin court in a different jurisdiction. This time it is the Jerusalem Sanhedrin, pretty much the same Jewish Judicial entity that charged Jesus before he was brought up in front of Roman Governor Pontius Pilate.

An Israeli media outlet reported last week that The Jerusalem Sanhedrin –a Jewish religious ‘High Court composed of 71 sages’, has declared that it is putting Pope Francis on trial unless he retracts his statement that the Jews have no right to the land of Israel or to Jerusalem.

Bill Gates’ $10 billion vaccine scam

The African country of Eritrea, where I live, has reduced malaria mortality by 85 percent in the last seven years. How? By using basic public health methods. By distributing pesticide treated mosquito nets and organizing the pesticide retreatment every three months of mosquito nets. By habitat eradication. And by community medical clinics for immediate treatment.

Malaria is a parasite-based disease noted for its variety and quick development of resistance to medication. Any “vaccine,” if even a billion dollars is able to produce such, would have a limited lifetime and new, patented medications would have to be bought by Africa’s poor every few years.

So “donating” a billion dollars to develop a malaria “vaccine” could turn into tens of billions of dollars in drug sales in Africa alone, and Bill Gates, through his drug company investments, will quietly pocket more African blood money.

FLASHBACK - Senator Sanders Statement on Prime Minister Netanyahu’s Speech to Congress

“More than a decade of wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have cost us thousands of lives and trillions in treasure and made a difficult situation even worse. Those experiences should reinforce our resolve to make every diplomatic effort to avoid another rush to war,” Sanders said.

“It goes without saying that Iran must not be allowed to develop a nuclear weapon. It goes without saying that the United States will stand by our long-standing friendship and support for the nation of Israel. Unfortunately, Prime Minister Netanyahu did not offer any serious alternatives to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon.

White House So Desperate To Get TPP Approved, It Agrees To Whitewash Mass Graves & Human Trafficking In Malaysia

In short, the State Department does not really think that Malaysia has improved its terrible record on human trafficking. It did not think so in March when it released an interim report. And then it made the political decision to hold off on releasing its June report until the middle of July to see how the fast track path proceeded.

Finally, rather than take this tool and use it force Malaysia to actually improve things, it gave the country a total free pass, just for the sake of finalizing TPP. I don't care where you stand on the various other provisions of the TPP, but this sort of cynical move -- where real lives are at stake -- is horrifying. And it shows the "who gives a fuck, get it done" attitude of our government right now.

Truth Is An Existential Threat To The US Government

That is why the political establishment and the media find Donald Trump so frightening: the danger that the truth might be spoken.

There is, however, a greater peril – when blatant and outrageous lies are no longer sufficient to soothe the electorate into complacency, such a government must begin to curtail liberty and oppress the people in order to sustain itself, an approach with which both Democrats and Republicans find agreement.

Greece’s public debt has become highly unsustainable. … The financing need through end-2018 is now estimated at Euro 85 billion. … Greece’s debt can now only be made sustainable through debt relief measures that go far beyond what Europe has been willing to consider so far. … Public debt cannot be assumed to migrate back onto the balance sheet of the private sector at interest rates consistent with debt sustainability until debt is much lower. Greece cannot return to markets anytime soon at interest rates that it can afford. … Medium-term primary surplus target: Greece is expected to maintain primary surpluses for the next several decades of 3.5 percent of GDP. Few countries have managed to do so. …

The US Government is Wiretapping WAY More Americans Than it Wants to Admit

Before Edward Snowden released his notorious NSA leaks, national intelligence officials swore they were not spying on millions of innocent people. As they lied through their teeth, ongoing revelations embarrassingly exposed their dishonesty. Now, yet another deception has come to light, revealing that the government has once again lied about the extent of its invasive policies. According to a 2014 year-end report by the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts (AO), “a total of 3,554 wiretaps were reported as authorized in 2014, with 1,279 authorized by federal judges and 2,275 authorized by state judges.” While this official number is already high, Albert Gidari, one of the country’s top privacy attorneys, noticed a discrepancy between the AO’s numbers and those detailed by private companies.

Zarif: Netanyahu is upset that Iran deal ended a ‘manufactured crisis’

A deal with world powers ended a “manufactured crisis” over Iran’s nuclear program, its foreign minister said Wednesday as he arrived home from negotiating the agreement which angered US lawmakers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Zarif is correct. The entire claim that Iran is a danger to the world rests on Israel's propaganda, bolstered by Israel's whores in the US government and corporate media. There never has been any real evidence that Iran is interested in building nuclear weapons (although one could hardly blame them if they wanted to, what with the US invading nations that do not have a nuclear deterrent, picking them off one by one). Iran has not invaded another country in a war of aggression in over 200 years. The entire hysteria about Iran's nuclear weapons is as manufactured and phony as the hysteria over Iraq's nuclear weapons. Netanyahu is furious, because he did not get the war against Iran he wants. More than that, Netanyahu is scared, because with the manufactured phony crisis about Iran coming to an end, he has nothing left with which to distract from discussions about Israel's endless crimes against their neighbors, in particular the Gazans, or from Israel's very real nuclear arsenal.

It Was the First Time the CIA Overthrew a Government…

62 years later, the aftermath is still troubling global politics.

Operation Ajax was a pivotal moment in US and world history. It was the first time the CIA overthrew a government.

Yet even today the US government would rather not talk about it. That’s why it remains an unknown story for many Americans.

The year was 1953. The objective was to oust Mohammad Mossadegh, the elected leader of the Majlis, Iran’s parliament.

Mossadegh was not a communist or a radical Islamist. He didn’t follow any objectionable ideology. Instead, he was a secular nationalist. But he was inconvenient.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The CIA then installed a puppet dictator who sold Iran's oil to American and British corporations at below market prices, while keeping the Iranian people terrorized by the Savak. This led to the Iranian revolution of 1979, and the US efforts to return Iran to vassal state status ever since. However this article is in error stating that this was the first time the CIA ousted an elected government. Only the year before, the CIA had masterminded the overthrow of Cuba's elected government of Carlos Prío Socarrás and the cancellation of the pending Cuban elections in which the US puppet, Fulgencio Batista had been trailing. Batista was then installed as the new ruler of Cuba, selling Cuban agricultural produce to American companies like United Fruit and Pepsico at below market prices, making those corporations rich while plunging the Cuban people into poverty, until the Cuban people kicked out their US puppet in 1959 and replaced him with Fidel Castro. The US responded to this refusal to live under US puppet rule as it always does, inflicting economic hardships on the entire population, only lifted this year to prevent Russia from gaining a foothold in Cuba in advance of the coming US war against Russia.
