Men’s Barbershop Fined After Refusing to Cut Woman’s Hair

You would think that as a business owner, you would have the right to decide who you serve in your establishment, but those days are long gone. Now you serve whoever the government tells you to serve, which shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. After all, if you’re willing to let them tax your income without your consent in exchange for their services, why should private business with your fellow citizens be any different?

The owner of a gentleman’s barbershop in Pennsylvania learned that the hard way when he was fined for refusing to cut a woman’s hair.

World War Three: Who Will Be Blamed?

If you want to start a to war, the unwashed masses must be convinced to send their brothers, sons and fathers to die on the front lines. The specter of an external enemy must be etched into their collective mind through trauma, exaggeration and repetition. History must be whitewashed, twisted and cherry picked down to a politicized nursery rhyme. At no point should the real motives or consequences of such an endeavor be discussed.

The Fascinating Evolution of a Club Drug: Could Ecstasy Cure PTSD?

MDMA (3,4-methylenedioxy-methamphetamine), popularly known as Ecstasy, X, E, and Molly, is a synthetic, psychoactive drug that has similarities to both the stimulant amphetamine and the hallucinogen mescaline.

It produces feelings of increased energy, euphoria, compassion, trust, and empathy toward others, and distortions in sensory and time perception.

Long associated with underground parties, raves, music festivals, and house parties, the drug and its variations have gained a reputation for being a dangerous substance with no positive attributes or therapeutic benefits.

But that’s far from the truth.

Chelsea Clinton “Surprised” That Not Everyone Loves Her Mom

This is humor, not satire (sadly).

Not everyone has turned their back on Clinton, as the following from AP makes clear:

Chelsea Clinton said Tuesday it’s surprising to hear that her mom is slipping in the polls because she’s “my hero.”

The young Clinton, who has a daughter of her own, says she believes that as more Americans get a chance to hear from Hillary Rodham Clinton, they will understand “why I believe so strongly that she would make a great president.“

Texans May Have Secession Question on Republican Primary Ballot

Aside from voting for whatever politician happens to be the flavor of the month, the Republican voters of Texas may have an additional question to answer for when Super Tuesday arrives next year. If the Texas Nationalist Movement has its way, then the Republican primary ballot may have to ask voters to decide whether or not they think “the state of Texas should reassert its status as an independent nation” and secede from the United States

Much to the chagrin of the Republican party, the Texas independence group is currently gathering signatures for a petition that would place their non-binding question on the ballot. According to the Texas Secretary of State, they will need at least 66,894 signatures, though the organization is shooting for 75,000.

Assad: “Worried About Refugees? Stop Supporting Terrorists”

Russia Today was recently granted a rare interview with other foreign media outlets at Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s home, wherein he summed up the entire refugee issue:

“It’s not about that Europe didn’t accept them or embrace them as refugees, it’s about not dealing with the cause. If you are worried about them, stop supporting terrorists. That’s what we think regarding the crisis. This is the core of the whole issue of refugees,” he said.

Has pilot spotted more debris belonging to MH370? Air France captain reports seeing object floating in water about 44 miles off coast of Reunion

An Air France captain has spotted floating debris near Reunion Island where a piece of the doomed Malaysian Airways MH370 jet washed up in July.

The captain was flying at 10,000 feet and was on approach for the Island's Saint-Denis Roland Garros airport when he alerted authorities.

Air crash investigators confirmed two weeks ago that a flaperon found on Reunion in July was definitely from MH370.

Israel to Obama: West Bank, Golan Heights in return for Iran’s nuclear deal

Politicians and officials consider the US’s adoption of Israel’s plans regarding its conflict with the Palestinians compensation for Israeli losses in the Iranian deal.

Lawsuit for 'Exhibitionism' Filed Against Femen for Protest at Muslim Event

The organizers of the 3rd Muslim Salon conference, which was disrupted by FEMEN members on Saturday in a Paris suburb, filed a lawsuit against the activists for sexual exhibitionism. "The demarche staged by FEMEN is irresponsible and deceitful. It is a denial of the freedom of expression. Our company and several families have appealed to a court," IslaEvents, the company which organized the event, said in a statement.
In their turn, the two girls who staged the protests want to file a lawsuit for violence against the organizers of the conference. Last Saturday, two girls ran on stage in front of two imams who were discussing the "to beat or not to beat a woman" dilemma. The activists were topless. "No one can enslave me, no one can possess me, I am my own prophet!" the slogan written on their naked chests said. They were also shouting it in French and Arabic.

Clinton’s Charity Ties With Oligarchs Behind Ukrainian Coup Revealed

The Clinton Foundation contributed to the February coup in Ukraine, having longstanding ties to Ukrainian oligarchs who pushed the country to European integration.

A sinister atmosphere surrounds the Clinton Foundation’s role in Ukrainian military coup of February 2014, experts point out.It has recently turned out that Ukrainian oligarch Viktor Pinchuk, a vocal proponent of Ukraine’s European integration, made huge contributions to the Clinton Foundation, while Hillary Clinton was the US Secretary of State. Although the foundation swore off donations from foreign governments while Mrs. Clinton was serving as a state official, it continued accepting money from private donors. Many of them had certain ties to their national governments like Viktor Pinchuk, a Ukrainian businessman and ex-parliamentarian.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The baggage Clinton brings to the table, as a Presidential candidate, is nothing less than ginormous.

Rebelión compares China, Russia, Venezuela, and Iran with musketeers

The United States keep a bead on four main targets - Russia in extensive Europe, Iran in the restless Middle East, China in the powerful Asia, Venezuela on the former Latin American margins. That is why Washington imposes sanctions, takes to undermining activities, damages economy and funds right radical forces worldwide, the Spanish agency Rebelión states.
The US never misses an opportunity to interfere with the internal affairs of Moscow, Tehran, Beijing, Caracas, try to pressurize them, encircle with hostile regimes and thus, keep in constant tension. The Pentagon takes to various dirty tricks and uses any pretext to put blame on these four strong and wealthy states. Their close relationship awakes fear in the neoconservative US elites.

Texas students not allowed to appeal to God

Students from the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley took to protests after their Professor prohibited to appeal to God during classes and exams.
The Prof, whose name is not revealed while the investigation is being carried out, wrote in his class syllabus to refrain from saying "God bless you".
The document aroused indignation among the American students, as it violates their right on freedom of speech, stated in the First Amendment of the US Constitution. "You shouldn't have a boundary on what you believe in, especially in the classroom," student John Taylor added. "I would've not said anything, but it would've bothered me because as a common courtesy, I say God bless you to people who sneeze."
University officials did not discuss the syllabus on camera, but did provide a statement that essentially backs the professor's authority to ban what he deems necessary.

Heroin epidemic: US defends its market from Mexico

The US border control noted that a "heroin epidemic" is being spread in the territory of the US. Border Patrol officials put the blame on illegal migrants from the neighbouring country, as well as corruption among common employees at the check points. As Hector Garza, president of the Laredo, Texas, chapter of the National Border Patrol Council, claimed "every single illegal alien that comes into the country goes through the hands of a drug cartel", and the price is often a backpack full of heroin.
Most heroin is smuggled into the U.S. by illegal immigrants crossing the border with help from Mexican drug cartels, according to Department of Homeland Security officials. The cartels are also responsible for most of the violence in the border region.

War and Peace: The Lost Principles of Science and Value

co-opting peace movements via 'humanitarian' war

snip:Again and again the same pattern unfolds with another designated enemy to justify another US-led aerial bombing of another poor society with resources for the US-led corporate-money maw – already far advanced in Ukraine without press decoding. Accusing the enemy to justify war-criminal aggression is now normalized so pervasively that progressive organizations succumb too without any principled life-value compass. Organized amnesia allows it. Indoctrinated thinking governs it. Stupefied group-egoism motivates it. Today the new propagandists of war are dressed in peace costumes as they assume the official narratives of war as their own.

State-sanctioned killings without trial: are these Cameron’s British values?

Three months ago David Cameron celebrated the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta. Flanked by the Queen and the archbishop of Canterbury he genuflected before the pillars of Britain’s legal system.

On Monday he confirmed that he had executed two British citizens without trial. Reyaad Khan and Ruhul Amin were jihadis, from Cardiff and Aberdeen respectively, fighting for Isis in Syria. They were not killed in the heat of battle but with cold calculation. Their assassination was the result of “meticulous planning”, claims Cameron.

Khan and Amin apparently made a choice to declare war on both the west and other Muslims and have died in it. It should worry us all when young British men opt for that path.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks like Cameron took a page from Obama's book on this, as Obama believes that extrajudicial assassinations against anyone who needs killing is perfectly legal, and justifiable.

Officials Cover Up Housing Bubble’s Scummy Residue: Fraudulent Foreclosure Documents

EVERY DAY IN AMERICA, mortgage companies attempt to foreclose on homeowners using false documents.

It’s a byproduct of the mortgage securitization craze during the housing bubble, when loans were sliced and diced so haphazardly that the actual ownership was confused.

When the bubble burst, lenders foreclosing on properties needed paperwork to prove their standing, but didn’t have it — leading mortgage industry employees to forge, fabricate and backdate millions of mortgage documents. This foreclosure fraud scandal was exposed in 2010, and acquired a name: “robo-signing.”

But while some of the offenders paid fines over the past few years, nobody cleaned up the documents. This rot still exists inside the property records system all over the country, and those in a position of authority appear determined to pretend it doesn’t exist.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder if the judges in these cases are getting compensated for "looking the other way" than deal with real criminal behaviour by corporations where the management believes that they can rip off property owners with impunity.

Obama Administration Accused of Ignoring Geneva Conventions in Refusal to Release 74-Pound Guantánamo Detainee

Ba Odah has been held at Guantánamo since 2002. He has never been charged with a crime. He began a peaceful hunger strike in 2007, and in 2009 he was cleared for release — as soon as Yemen became more stable or the government could find someplace else for him to go.

He is still waiting, now down to 74 pounds — a “chronic, life-threatening and potentially irreversible” condition, according to his lawyers.

Ba Odah’s petition to be released due to his failing and irreversible health condition revolves around two statutes: Article 110 of the Third Geneva Convention, and Section 3-12 of Army Regulations 190-8. The Geneva Convention mandates that prisoners of war be repatriated to their own country if their physical or mental condition is “gravely diminished” and is not likely to recover in one year. The Army regulations clause controls the repatriation of sick or wounded enemy prisoners of war, requiring a neutral doctor and direct repatriation in cases of serious injury or illness.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

NOT a prisoner of war?!?

Sorry, Obama administration: this is sort of like being pregnant. Either you are, or are not. There is no middle ground here, and the phrase "enemy combatant" has no real force in international law.

Also, this man has never been charged with any kind of crime.

This detention is such an immoral mockery of American jurisprudence that I hardly know where to begin.

PUBLIC SCHOOL STUDENTS ARE THE NEW INMATES IN THE AMERICAN POLICE STATE

From the moment a child enters one of the nation’s 98,000 public schools to the moment she graduates, she will be exposed to a steady diet of draconian zero tolerance policies that criminalize childish behavior, overreaching anti-bullying statutes that criminalize speech, school resource officers (police) tasked with disciplining and/or arresting so-called “disorderly” students, standardized testing that emphasizes rote answers over critical thinking, politically correct mindsets that teach young people to censor themselves and those around them, and extensive biometric and surveillance systems that, coupled with the rest, acclimate young people to a world in which they have no freedom of thought, speech or movement.

If your child is fortunate enough to survive his encounter with the public schools, you should count yourself fortunate.

Most students are not so lucky.

I have three words for parents with school age kids: home school them!!

And that number of 30% of publicly schooled kids will wind up arrested?!? This is completely insane!!

These four wars have converted what was once a free country into a police state, making the United States the most over-incarcerated nation in the world.

They cleared the way for dozens of extremist settlers to enter the compound where they don’t belong. Throughout three days of violence, the world community remained silent - other than duplicitously calling on both sides to show restraint, doing nothing to intervene responsibly, letting Israel continue its longstanding reign of terror against defenseless Palestinian men, women and children.

The preparation for Russian military deployment in Syria continues

A campaign has been launched by the opponents of the agreement between the United States and Iran accusing Russia of intending to annex Syria by military force, as it had done in Crimea. In reality, Moscow is applying UNO resolutions and preparing an operation against the jihadists, and will go ahead with or without the consent of Washington. Already, the White House has organised a joint operation by the international Coalition and Syria. France is attempting to jump on the bandwagon, hoping at the same time to sabotage the US / Iran reconciliation.

U.S. Aerial Surveillance is Being Impaired Off the East Coast Until October 1st Due to “Military Activities”

UH!OH! Can you say FALSE FLAG children!

In a nutshell, it appears that aerial surveillance across much of the East Coast will be impaired until October 1 due to “military activities.”

Submitted by Michael Krieger, Liberty Blitzkrieg:

A notam issued Sept. 1 announced that, beginning Sept. 2, both ADS-B surveillance and TCAS may be unreliable in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida, as well as in airspace extending approximately 200 nautical miles off shore. The situation is expected to last through Oct. 1 as a result of military exercises in the area.

But similar military exercises in the past have caused no interference with civilian ADS-B or TCAS, and AOPA is asking the FAA to explain both why the notam was issued so late and what has changed to raise these new concerns.

Paranoia and Pernicious Prosecutions: The Department of Injustice Continues its War Against the Innocent

snip: Furthermore, prosecutors almost certainly would have made an obvious appeal to xenophobia among jurors, and it is hard to imagine a jury not voting for “guilty” on at least one count, which often is just what happens in federal criminal trials. One does not need to have committed a crime to be convicted of wrongdoing in federal court, and federal criminal law itself pretty much makes it a crime for a defendant to exercise his constitutional right to a trial. (The penalties one receives if convicted at trial are substantially greater than the penalties given when one pleads guilty.)

snip: It has been said that America’s schools are the training ground for future generations. Instead of raising up a generation of freedom fighters, however, we seem to be busy churning out newly minted citizens of the American police state who are being taught the hard way what it means to comply, fear and march in lockstep with the government’s dictates.

As I point out in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, with every school police raid and overzealous punishment that is carried out in the name of school safety, the lesson being imparted is that Americans—especially young people—have no rights at all against the state or the police.

Turkey Pushes Refugees To Europe; Part Of NATO War Plan, False Flag, Police State?

By Brandon Turbeville

When observing the tragic humanitarian crisis that has fully engulfed virtually all of Europe as a result of the mass migration of people from war-torn and third world countries, many may be prompted to wonder just how all of these refugees came to take part in a mass exodus at the same time as if they were acting on cue. After all, the Syrian crisis has been unfolding for 4-5 years now and the Libyan crisis even longer still. Other countries have found themselves on the wrong end of NATO but, until now, we have not seen the massive migration such as that taking place across Europe today and very soon to include the United States.

After all, if the Syrian refugees were escaping Syria because of Assad’s cruelty, why did we not witness an immigration crisis in 2008? 2009? 2010? In fact, why have we not seen such a mass exodus until now?...

What Are We Missing About Haiti in the Hillary Emails?

The truth is that no one will ever be privy to the complete correspondences, but there is more than enough information available to discuss how the United States conducts corrupt foreign policy in Haiti. Even if a Freedom of Information Request (FOIA) were submitted to obtain every last email on the official State Department server during Secretary Clinton's term, most would not see the light of day. Clinton's staff, under the direction of Cheryl Mills, was known for blocking the release of what they deemed "politically sensitive" documents requested under the FOIA law.

I mention Haiti because, after spending a significant amount of time there post earthquake, I have come to understand that corruption has been a part of our foreign policy for hundreds of years. I am not a Haiti expert, but I have seen firsthand the malfeasance of USAID, NGO's, the United Nations, foreign church groups, and international banking institutions.

Burned alive by Israelis

Incinerating humans whether in a gas chamber, military attack, by injecting petrol into the mouth or throwing a torch through a window all have one thing in common: burning is how racists manifest hate.

Five years ago at a stop during my book signing tour in San Diego, I met an adorable toddler named Farah.

She was being treated in the US for severe burns she received at the age of two.

Farah was one of thousands of civilians who were either injured or killed when Israel rained white phosphorus bombs on Gaza in 2008-2009.

The phosphorus that burned through Farah’s angelic flesh was American made and paid for by US taxpayers. Ironically, so was Farah’s treatment.
