Systemic Corruption Has Destroyed America

The Cop Is On the Take, but the private sector is no better … for example, the big banks have literally turned into criminal syndicates engaged in systemic fraud.

Wall Street and giant corporations are literally manipulating every single market.

And the big corporations are cutting corners to make an extra penny … wreaking havoc with their carelessness.

Ron Paul Fears The CIA Is The Biggest Threat To Americans' Liberty

As the Senate scrambled to pass the USA Freedom Act this evening, reinstating the agency’s ability to spy on Americans, Ron Paul points out that US intelligence organizations have always – and will continue – to operate outside the law; with Daniel McAdams noting the CIA "is sort of the President’s own Praetorian Guard." As Sputnik News reports, before Americans applaud a minor step toward transparency, Paul warns that they should recognize the corrosive nature of the CIA, "They are a secret government," operating way above the law, and are "way out of control."

Michael Collins Piper, 1960-2015, Rest in Peace

Our dearest friend, Mike, passed away this past weekend, apparently resulting from his heart condition made worse by the stress he endured first in losing his job, being forced to relocate out here to Idaho and then the housefire that took place 3 weeks ago, forcing him to relocate again.

Details are sketchy at this point, as I am waiting to meet with the police officials handling his case.

Details will be made public once they are available.

Pentagon May have Received Live Anthrax Shipment From U.S. Military Lab

The Pentagon is now investigating whether live anthraxwas brought into the Pentagon building itself, CNN has learned exclusively. The Pentagon Force Protection Agency, the Pentagon's police force, is one of the agencies that received questionable U.S. Army shipments of anthrax. That shipment now must be tested to see if its live rather than dead pathogen.

The fatal shooting of a Muslim man on a Boston sidewalk underscores the difficulty faced by US authorities trying to counter the increasing influence of Islamic radicalization among young men and women living in the United States.

Although the full details of Tuesday’s encounter have not yet been released, authorities said the victim, Usaama Rahim, had been under round-the-clock surveillance by a terrorism task force that suspected he had become radicalized by the Islamic State (formerly known as ISIS).

The Guardian view on surveillance after Snowden: an outlaw rewrites the law

Since the Guardian broke the first Snowden disclosures two years ago, arguments have raged over whether he is a traitor or a whistleblower. Now that Capitol Hill has felt moved to right certain wrongs he exposed, that row should be over. He deserves a pardon at home, or else asylum in western Europe, for revealing truths that US lawmakers have recognised required a response. It’s time Westminster woke up, too.

How’s Earth-life mid-2015? Awful-Awesome, naturally

*hyperlinks/video live at source*

hat tip: ZenGardner

“The time has come to air the Voice of Reason,
In a world gone mad, adrift on banal seas,
For all who feel that lies have had their season,
And whose Hearts Cry Out instead for Honesty,
For all the weary souls grown bored with dreaming,
Whose thirst for Beauty and for Knowledge goes unslaked,
For all who want to wake from what is dreaming,
To know what’s Real, and what is Real to embrace.
For all who’ve watched with mounting horror,
Evil’s reign upon this world grow ever-clear,
For all who’ve prayed in vain, Emancipators,
Wielding Swords of Truth and laughing without fear.”

-William Melvin “Bill” Hicks

Comedian Bill Hicks voiced the above in poetic beauty of Earth’s condition for all inhabitants: awful, awesome, and somehow in harmony with reality.

Did Police Lie About the Fatal Shooting of a Florida Man? Sure Looks Like It

On July 31, 2013, 33-year-old Jermaine McBean walked through his Florida apartment complex with an unloaded air rifle propped on his shoulders.

Three residents who saw McBean strolling around with the rifle became concerned and called 911.

The officers who responded to the call claim that they repeatedly yelled to McBean to drop his weapon, but the man didn't comply, and that he turned and pointed the rifle at them.

Police shot and killed the man, and now new evidence suggests the officers lied and covered up what really happened.

Sheriff Victor Hill headed to Israel

Sheriff Victor Hill, who is facing misdemeanor charges in connection with the recent shooting of a real estate agent in Gwinnett County, is headed to Israel later this month.

Gwinnett District Attorney Danny Porter said he was notified about two weeks ago of the Clayton County sheriff’s travel plans in an email from Hill’s attorney. The email also noted that any money Hill earned from the trip would go to pay for the medical bills of Gwenevere McCord who was allegedly shot May 3 by Hill at a model home in Gwinnett. Hill and McCord have said the shooting was an accident. The email did not state how long Hill would be out of the country.

“He had a pre-planned trip. I don’t really sign off on it,” Porter told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution Tuesday. “There’s no restrictions on his bond that keeps him from being able to go. I don’t have any say one way or the other.

Florida Court Rules “Off Grid” Living Illegal

Robin Speronis had been living in an off-grid home for many years without incident, until she was interviewed by a local FOX affiliate in November of 2013. Shortly thereafter, the city of Cape Coral tagged a “notice to vacate” on her property, due to multiple code violations, all of which stem from the fact that her home isn’t connected to water, sewage, or the electrical grid. The city has tried to argue that she is in violation of the International Property Maintenance Code for relying on rainwater and solar panels, instead of utilities. (read more)

Deputies Plead Guilty to Covering Up Assault Against Inmate’s Brother

Two Los Angeles sheriff’s deputies have agreed to plead guilty to criminal charges regarding a brutal assault against an inmate’s brother visiting the Men’s County Jail (MCJ). After the first deputy pled guilty earlier this year, a second deputy agreed to plead guilty last week to lying to FBI agents during an interview concerning the use force employed against a handcuffed visitor who was not resisting. Both deputies have also agreed to testify against their former colleagues if the prosecution calls on them at trial.

Scrubbed! Government Removes Recent Vaccine Injury Data from Website

In March, the federal government removed the latest vaccine injury court statistics—more than a year’s worth of data—from one of its publicly reported charts. It was an abrupt departure from the normal practice of updating the figures monthly.

Wiping the latest data means the “adjudication” chart on a government website no longer reflects the recent, sharp rise in court victories for plaintiffs who claimed their children were seriously injured or killed by one or more vaccines.

Since January of 2014, twice as many victims have won court decisions than the previous eight years combined. In these court decisions, a judge ruled the evidence showed vaccines “more likely than not” caused the plaintiff’s injuries.

Also on the rise is the number of vaccine injury cases the government has “conceded”: up 55% in a little over one year.

TSA Director Reassigned after Agency only Caught Guns and Bombs 5% of the Time

But you, Mr. and Mrs. America, still have to take off your flip flops to have them double checked for bombs when you take your kids on a trip to Disneyland. And if one of those kids is a three-year-old in a wheelchair, well then the likelihood of he or she getting out of there without being swabbed and molested, or at the very least humiliated and terrified, is pretty small.

You know… because your disabled four-year-old kid with leg braces or the baby inside your pregnant wife or your grandma’s underwear or your prosthetic breast or just your nipple ring or the urostomy bag you have to wear because of your bladder cancer or your dead mother’s urn might have a bomb or a gun in it… because you and your spouse and children and grandparents are obviously all terrorists.

Fifa corruption: Qatar says investigations are racist, anti-Arab and show 'ugly face' of countries who lost 2022 World Cup bid

Qatari politicians have called the investigation into alleged corruption in its World Cup bid “racist” and accused the West of anti-Arab bias.
Foreign minister Khaled al-Attiyah spoke out after prosecutors in the US charged nine international football officials with money laundering and racketeering and Swiss authorities announced their own probe into the award of the 2018 and 2022 tournaments.
“The attack on Qatar's World Cup is racist,” he was quoted as saying by the editor of Qatari pro-government newspaper al-Sharq.

FBI is operating a small air force with scores of low-flying planes across the country carrying video and, at times, cellphone surveillance technology - all hidden behind fictitious companies that are fronts for the government

The planes' surveillance equipment is generally used without a judge's approval, and the FBI said the flights are used for specific, ongoing investigations. The FBI said it uses front companies to protect the safety of the pilots and aircraft. It also shields the identity of the aircraft so that suspects on the ground don't know they're being watched by the FBI.

It Cost US Taxpayers At Least $250,000 To Repatriate A Bicycle-Challenged John Kerry

The somewhat farcical journey home from Europe for Secretary of State John Kerry continues. As we noted previously, after breaking his leg on an arbidged Tour de France'-esque accident in which he hit a curb, he was flown to Geneva in a helicopter where he was "stable and never lost consciousness," which makes sense (unless as many have suggested his brain lies considerably lower in his body than most humans).

But then the escapade got beyond unreal as The White House sent a massive "specially-equipped" C-17 airplane (used to carrying over 100 combat troops and equipment into battle) to fly him to Boston for surgery.

TPP death pool: more pharmaceutical destruction is coming

By Jon Rappoport

Question: “Who said that drug was safe? Where did that assessment come from? People are dropping like flies.”

Answer: “We all said it was safe. Remember? All twelve members of the TPP. We all agreed. So now we have to stick to our guns. Admit nothing. Keep your mouth shut.”

This “trade treaty,” the TPP, will, if passed, eventually morph into a close-knit international collective of government agencies that collaborate on medical-drug “safety.” ...

Washington Blows Itself Up With Its Own Bomb. US Strategy Backfires

These are sad days in Washington and Wall Street. The once unchallenged sole Superpower at the collapse of the Soviet Union some quarter century ago is losing its global influence so rapidly that most would not have predicted anything comparable six months ago. The key actor who has catalyzed a global defiance of Washington as Sole Superpower is Vladimir Putin, Russia’s President. This is the real background to the surprise visit of US Secretary of State John Kerry to Sochi to meet with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and then a four hour talk with “Satan” himself, Putin.

Far from a “reset” try, Washington’s hapless geopolitical strategists are desperately trying to find a better way to bring the Russian Bear to her knees.

Faulty software install led to Airbus A400M plane crash

Airbus SAS has admitted that a software problem caused its A400M transport plane to crash in an accident that killed four people last month.

Germany’s Handelsblatt newspaper reports the software in question was installed incorrectly, and that caused the A400M’s engines to stall shortly before the crash. However, the software itself was free from glitches.

Marwan Lahoud, Airbus’ chief strategy officer, said in an interview that the company believes there is no problem with the airplane itself. “The black boxes attest … that there are no structural defects, but we have a serious quality problem in the final assembly,” Lahoud said.

How the "Holocaust" was faked

These forced laborers and prisoners were well-cared for, at least until the end of the war when Germany's supply lines broke down and chaos ensued as a result of the Soviet and Anglo-American invasion of German territory. They were well-fed, well-provided for, and given medical treatment and entertainment. They were allowed to attend concerts, organize plays, make music and play sports. If the Germans were hell bent on murdering these people, why would they provide medical care for them and allow them to entertain themselves?
Note: It is against the law in many countries to even speak the above under penalty of jail!

Why Is France Up in Arms About Holocaust Compensation Deal?

A heated debate erupted in the French Parliament yesterday about who is responsible for the deportation of thousands of French Jews to the death camps during the Holocaust: Could it be the French government?
Last year, the U.S. and French governments signed an agreement for France to pay $60 million to those rounded up and deported by the French police collaborating with the Nazis, which would include victims, or their heirs, who immigrated to the United States and other countries and are not yet covered by other French programs.
Note: They were marched to the "death" camps that had hospitals, orchestras, brothels, swimming pools, soccer fields, etc. Get the facts.
