The Unavoidable Fall of the American Empire

Is America getting worse or better? Is America going to be “great” again, whatever that has meant since the 1980s? But more to the point, what difference does any of it make? Let’s be honest here about the so-called future of the United States of America. Since the dawn of what humanity likes to call “civilization” (i.e. the ability of a government to rob honest people under the guise of taxation), very few governments/nations/kingdoms have survived more than a few hundred years. Now, the United States has had a pretty good run. We’ve done a lot and accomplished a lot, not the least of which is inventing the ability to destroy the entire planet.

Pentagon to No Longer Label Independent Journalists as Spies

The Pentagon removed from its manual threat of punishment for independent journalists who cover hostilities from both sides of the conflict line.

OSCOW (Sputnik) — The Pentagon revised its Law of War manual on Friday to remove threat of punishment for independent journalists who cover hostilities from both sides of the conflict line.

The update came a year after the US military faced a barrage of criticism from press organizations for labelling journalists as potential spies and saboteurs, in its first ever legal handbook released for personnel last June.

"The changes to the manual reflect the department’s concerted effort to address those concerns and clarify specific language," Pentagon Press Secretary Peter Cook said in a statement.

Philadelphia airport workers plan to strike during DNC

The fight to raise the minimum wage is headed to the doorstep of the Democratic National Convention, with local airport workers planning to go on strike when delegates descend upon Philadelphia next week.

Roughly 1,000 workers, including those who handle luggage, attend to passengers in wheelchairs and clean plane cabins, are expected to not show up for work in order to call attention to their demands for a $15 minimum wage and the ability to join the Service Employees International Union.

Learning What It’s Like To Be Serfs?

“We are heartbroken … It’s painful to wake up in the morning to know some of your brothers … have been killed.”

You might suppose the speaker to be a relative of Philando Castile or Alton Sterling, or some other black American serf (not because cops don’t kill whites—they do; in fact, most of their victims are white, even if a disproportionate number aren’t. But whites don’t typically speak of “brothers”).

"Turkey’s secret pact with Islamic State exposed by operative behind wave of ISIS attacks"

New evidence has emerged that the Turkish government under President Erdogan is covertly providing direct military, financial and logistical support to ISIS, even while claiming to fight the terror network. The evidence comes in the form of testimony from an ISIS terrorist captured by Kurdish Peshmerga fighters, widely recognised as the most effective force confronting ISIS on the ground.

Transgender 'Woman' Arrested for Taking Photos of Teen Girl in Target Changing Room

This is one of many cases of women being preyed upon in Target dressing rooms across the country ever since the company announced its new bathroom/changing room policy in April that allows anyone to use any bathroom or changing room at Target stores, regardless of biological sex. It's the first time the perpetrator claims to actually be transgender; the rest so far appear to have been men who identity as men going into women's dressing rooms and trying to film women changing to peep at them simply because, well, Target basically allows it now.

Pentagon Revises Law of War Policy Treating Reporters Like Spies

The Pentagon is changing the U.S. military's manual of war after listening to criticism of the language regarding journalists, which seemed to let commanders treat reporters as spies, The Huffington Post reports.

The U.S. Department of Defense manual was released in June 2015, and quickly drew attention from The New York Times, which pointed out the guidelines on journalists and called for their repeal.

Under the 2015 version, journalists could be treated as "unprivileged belligerents," which entails fewer legal protections than those afforded to prisoners of war and combatants.

"The new language is a seismic shift for the U.S. military," said Frank Smyth, senior adviser for journalist security at the Committee to Protect Journalists. "This affirmation of journalists' right to report armed conflicts freely and from all sides is especially welcome at a time when governments, militias, and insurgent forces around the world are routinely flouting the laws of war."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"...fewer legal protections than those afforded to prisoners of war and combatants."?!?!?!

Considering how hellish the treatment of prisoners of war has been at Gitmo,
apparently saying something the Pentagon doesn't like (the truth), you, as a reporter, can therefore be indefinitely detained without due process.

When telling the truth becomes criminalized, you know that the society doing it is in deep, intense trouble.

Public have no right to know who is funding Hillary Clinton's $60 million coronation at Democratic National Convention, party says in bid for secrecy on donors 

The host committee for the Democratic National Convention wants to keep its donor list under wraps until after the convention even though a state open records agency has ordered its release.

A Philadelphia 2016 Host Committee lawyer told a judge Thursday the release of fundraising records could harm the organization's last-minute efforts to seek donations and negotiate vendor contracts.

Lawyer David Pittinsky said those efforts were still ongoing even though the four-day convention starts Monday.

The host committee set out to raise about $60 million from private sources, but secured a $15 million line of credit from the city as a safety net. The committee must therefore file financial updates with the city.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh, REALLY?!?

Just, pray tell, what is the DNC so terrified that these disclosures will reveal, that they want this done AFTER the convention in September?!?!?!

Trumped - A Nation On The Brink Of Ruin... And How To Bring It Back

America’s faltering economy has been made in Washington DC, not at the illegal crossing routes on the Arizona border or the containership berths at Long Beach. For more than three decades the nation’s central banks have flooded the US and world economies with too much free money and Washington politicians have accommodated the beltway lobbyists and racketeers and the country’s huge entitlement constituencies with too much free boot.

So the real disease is bad money and towering debts. The actual culprits are the Wall Street/Washington policy elites who have embraced statist solutions which aggrandize their own power and wealth.

That much, at least, Donald Trump has right. Throwing-out the careerists, pettifoggers, hypocrites, ideologues, racketeers, power-seekers and snobs who have brought about the current ruin is at least a start in the right direction.

In Light of Recent Attacks on Police, White House Considers Re-Militarization

By Claire Bernish

Reactionary politics and legislation put us on hamster wheels guaranteeing a number of issues will never change, and militarized, brutal policing marks a prime example of this problem — particularly now, following a smattering of attacks on officers in Dallas and elsewhere.

In a reactionary response to several shootings of officers, Pres. Obama now plans to review — and potentially repeal — the May 2015 ban on police obtaining military surplus equipment like riot gear, explosives, armored vehicles, grenade launchers, bayonets, and more...

The Crisis in Turkey Could Swallow Us All. Is America behind the Coup?

Erdogan has said he did not want to link the delivery of Gulen to Turkish justice with the continued cooperation between the U.S. and Turkey in using the Incirlik air base – thereby linking the two. Incirlik is a Turkish base with a strong NATO presence (including some 2,700 Americans). The previous Turkish commander of the base is now under arrest for his role in the coup, including sending up F-16s and refueling tankers from Incirlik. Erdogan might well ask: what did the Americans there know, and when did they know it? Incirlik is important in the war on ISIS as the base from which most air attacks on ISIS originate. Responding to the coup, the Turkish government cut power to Incirlik and imposed a no-fly zone, shutting it down. That sealed-off condition continued through July 20, with no one allowed to leave or enter the base, although air attacks on ISIS have reportedly resumed.

Karadzic Appeals Against Sentence

Karadzic appeals against 40 years sentence for war crimes

On Friday former Bosnian Serb leader Radovan Karadzic filed an appeal against the 40 year prison sentence the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in The Hague gave him in March, the Volkskrant reports.

Karadzic stood trial for his role in atrocities committed during the Bosnian War, including the Srebrenica massacre in 1995 during which some 8,400 Muslim men and boys were slaughtered. He was also charged with genocide in seven Bosnian municipalities in the first year of the war (1992). From April of that year the Bosinan Serb army performed “ethnic cleansing” which was accompanied by mass detentions and executions of Bosnian Muslims and Croatians .

All in all Karadzic faced 11 charges – >>>

ISIS TERRORJUL 21 2016, 11:59 AM ETISIS Trying to Topple Saudi King with Attack on Mohammed's Mosque

Current and former U.S. officials say a recent ISIS attack on the tomb of Mohammed in Saudi Arabia -- Islam's second holiest site -- shows the terror group is now directly challenging the kingdom's ruling family and trying to topple the monarchy.

"The Saudi king's tiles include 'Protector of the two Holy Cities," said one senior U.S. counterterrorism official. "The message of the attack is that that protection doesn't exist."

The kingdom's two holy cities, Mecca and Medina, are home Islam's two holiest sites, the Qabba in Mecca, which millions of pilgrims visit every year, and the Mosque of the Prophet in Medina, which holds Mohammed's tomb.

Said the counterterrorism official, "If [the royal family] can't protect those places -- and people traveling to those cities from across Islam - it calls in to question the fitness of their ruling power and its legitimacy."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were I King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud of Saudi Arabia, I would want to have an immediate chat with US Ambassador Westphal as to what the hell American trained and supported ISIS was doing in Saudi Arabia.

I would then politely remind him that if this crud does not stop, all Saudi investment, over 20 billion dollars, would be yanked immediately from American business interests, putting the US economy into an absolute tail spin.

Hungry and thirsty, Williams screamed for help but couldn’t convince anyone at the David L. Moss Detention Center to help him.
Detention officers at the Tulsa Jail tossed three styrofoam trays of jail food at his feet, but Williams could not retrieve them. Though Williams begged for something to drink, he couldn’t pick up the styrofoam cups of water they placed near him.

Atlanta mayor rejects demand to end Israel police training

“There was a demand that I stop allowing the Atlanta Police Department to train with the Israeli police department,” Mayor Reed acknowledged at a press conference (video above). “I’m not going to do that,” he told reporters.

“I happen to believe that the Israeli police department has some of the best counterterrorism techniques in the world,” Reed insisted. “And it benefits our police department from that longstanding relationship.”

It was an interesting choice of words considering that Israeli, Palestinian and international human rights organizations, as well as the UN, have repeatedly condemned Israeli forces, including the police, for a range of human rights violations, particularly for their frequent extrajudicial executions of Palestinians.

It was also recently revealed that Israeli police are authorized to use lethal force as a first resort against Palestinians they suspect might throw rocks, including minors.

B’Tselem: 63% of casualties in 2014 war were civilians

Two years after Operation Protective Edge, a B’Tselem report said 1,394, or 63 percent, of the 2,202 Palestinians killed by the IDF did not take part in the conflict.

This is lower than the figure cited by the United Nations and other NGOs of 70% but is still higher than Israeli intelligence estimates of 50%. Sixty-six soldiers and seven civilians were killed on the Israeli side.

The data gathered by B’Tselem, and released on Wednesday, was collected from field researchers in Gaza, cross-referenced with publicly available data.

This report is the first time B’Tselem has collected data on the war. Prior to this all casualty numbers were based on outside figures.

According to B’Tselem spokeswoman Sarit Michaeli the purpose of the report is to inform the Israeli public of the war’s high death toll.

“Our main goal is to enable the Israeli public to be informed,” she said.

Turkish Parliament Grants Erdogan Sweeping New Powers for State of Emergency

In a 346-115 vote, the Turkish parliament has approved a three month state of emergency across Turkey, the first time such a state will be applied over the entire nation. The vote grants sweeping new powers to President Erdogan, who had already centralized an unprecedented level of power before the failed coup.

The new powers aim to facilitate the expansion of the ongoing purge against broad swathes of Turkish society, allowing longer detention for suspects without charges, and for Erdogan to effectively rule by decree on several issues, without parliament approval.

Beyond that, the state of emergency allows the government to effectively ignore human rights law entirely, with the constitution only limiting them to the extent that there are limits in place from international treaties. Turkey’s withdrawal from the European Commission on Human Rights today suggests that they are planning to pare down such limits.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were I a foreign national doing business in Turkey, I would cut my losses, and get the heck out of Dodge immediately, if not sooner.

This will not end well.

There is a great tyrannical darkness descending over this nation, and Attaturk, the founder of modern-day religiously-neutral Turkey, is most probably rolling over in his grave, at warp speed.

Top Clinton Lobbyist Bundlers Tied to Foreign Banks, Governments

A number of Hillary Clinton’s top lobbyist bundlers, who have raised millions for her presidential campaign, either directly represent foreign entities or work at firms that represent foreign entities, according to documents from the Justice Department’s Foreign Agents Registration Unit.

Hillary for America, Clinton’s campaign committee, has hauled in more than $7 million in bundled lobbyist contributions since its inception. The committee finished 2015 with $4.1 million in bundled lobbyist contributions. It has since added more than $2.9 million to its coffers from lobbyists, with $1.2 million of that amount pouring in during the second quarter of 2016, from April 1 to June 30.

Tony Podesta, owner of the Podesta Group and brother of John Podesta, the chairman of Clinton’s campaign, is a top bundler for Hillary for America. Podesta has bundled $267,835 in contributions to date. Podesta was hired to work on behalf of Saudi interests.

Miami cop shot caregiver while trying to protect him from autistic man with toy truck: police union

North Miami police offered a weird excuse for the officer who shot and wounded a black, unarmed hospital caregiver tending to an autistic man.

The head of the Florida city’s police union said the officer, whose name still has not been released, actually meant to shoot the autistic man playing in the street with a toy truck, reported the Miami Herald.

John Rivera, head of Miami-Dade’s Police Benevolent Association, said the officer was actually trying to protect the caregiver, Charles Kinsey, from his autistic patient by firing three shots from a military-style rifle.

But he apparently missed and shot Kinsey instead.

Video showing most of the encounter has been released, and the shooting has gained international attention.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The intensity of police brutality borders on insane right now in this country.

Instead of being trained to calm down, or walk back from, an allegedly volatile situation, it appears that US police believe they can shoot to kill, and get away with it with absolutely impunity.

HIGHWAY BLUETOOTH DETECTORS ARE SPYING ON MOTORISTS AND PEDESTRIANS

DHS, the Dept., of Transportation and probably the DEA are using Bluetooth detectors to spy on motorists and pedestrians.

Government agencies like DHS and the DEA use Bluetooth detectors to gather Bluetooth data from a Wireless Sensor Network.
Wireless technology that allows electronic devices to communicate directly with one another
Recently emerged as viable travel time collection technology
Open standard, allows for off-the-shelf equipment
Detection range limited to about 328 feet (100 meters)
Less expensive than many other options
Flexible installation
Some potential privacy concerns
Detection technology relies on drivers' use of Bluetooth-enabled devices
“The whole country is doing this,” Paul Misticawi, vice president of public sector sales for traffic data software company.

Bluetooth detectors will soon be able to identify everyone

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These are the acts of a government terrified of their own people.

And in terms of surveilling ME?!?

The question would be, why the heck?!?

I'm a Christian pacifist activist, and the choral director of a small local church choir; what "threat level", please, do I present to this government?!?

The logical, short answer would be, zero.

But because I post to this blog, and work through information as logically and intelligently as I can, under the NDAA, I can be imprisoned indefinitely without due process whatsoever.

And as Shakespeare said, "Aye, there's the rub."

When logic itself becomes criminalized, the society in which this is happening is in deep kim chee. (Here in the Islands, that's literally a sour cabbage dish, but it means being in deep trouble.)

And folks, this is already starting to happen in this country.

MICHIGAN GOES TOTAL POLICE STATE WITH ROADSIDE SALIVA CHECK POINTS

The Michigan State Police is working on plans to establish a pilot program for roadside drug testing, a spokeswoman said.

A new law instructs the state police to pick five counties where it will run a one-year pilot program for saliva-based testing to check drivers for drugs like marijuana, heroin and cocaine.

“We expect the counties to be finalized this summer with a pilot to begin sometime later in the year,” MSP spokeswoman Shanon Banner said.

The five counties will be determined based on criteria including: the number of impaired driving crashes;the number of impaired drivers arrested; and the number of Drug Recognition Experts (DREs) trained in the county, she said.

Attorney Neil Rockind, founder of Southfield-based criminal defense law firm Rockind Law, opposed the legislation he said would set a “dangerous precedent” for Michigan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yes, I can understand that we don't want drugged or drunk drivers on the road; however, this is a blatant, in your face, violation of the 4th Amendment.

These kits cost around $150.00 per testing unit.

I have to wonder just what kind of "relationship" the drug testing manufacturer who won this contract has with the State of Michigan.

What can the State of Michigan prove about the reliability of such testing kits?!?

And what happens to someone who refuses to take the test?!? Are they imprisoned for "failure to comply" with a demand for such testing?!?

Scott Adams: My Opinion of Trump’s Convention Speech

Persuasion-wise, Trump’s family was the big story of the convention. People seem to love them in the same way the public loved the Kennedys. And notice how Donald Jr. and Eric both have the speaking cadence of John and Jack Kennedy. Notice also how Melania reminds you of Jackie Kennedy – quiet, smart, and classy. These are coincidences, but your irrational brain doesn’t care. It sees a new batch of Kennedys and wants to see more of them. That’s powerful election magic for a nation that only pretends to care about policies.

FRENCH GOVERNMENT ORDERS DESTRUCTION OF NICE ATTACK CCTV FOOTAGE OFFICIALLY TO PREVENT LEAKS

An urgent legal requisition was sent to urban supervision center of Nice Wednesday, July 20. The Paris evokes a desire to “avoid the uncontrolled dissemination of these images.”

Panic and misunderstanding for mayor of Nice.

Webmaster's Commentary:

The memo allegedly states 'poor or unknown reliability issues' were identified in a letter dated June 28.

'These four systems affect major areas of flight operations,' Defense Department Director of Operational Test and Evaluation Michael Gilmore wrote to Pentagon and Navy weapons buyers, according to Bloomberg News.

'Unless these issues are resolved, which would likely require redesigning, they will significantly limit the CVN-78’s ability to conduct combat operations."

Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness.” ~ Dr. Richard Horton, Editor of The Lancet (world’s top medical journal for published research)

“It is simply no longer possible to believe much of the clinical research that is published, or to rely on the judgment of trusted physicians or authoritative medical guidelines. I take no pleasure in this conclusion, which I reached slowly and reluctantly over my two decades as an editor of the New England Journal of Medicine.” ~ Dr. Marcia Angell, Editor in Chief, New England Journal of Medicine

What if the Fix Was In? : Andrew P. Napolitano on crooked Hillary, crooked government

What if Hillary Clinton has engaged in espionage and public corruption and FBI agents know that she has? What if they have evidence to prove it but they could not present anything to a grand jury because President Obama wants Clinton, and not Donald Trump, to succeed him in office? What if this blatant political interference with a criminal investigation is itself a crime? What if, midstream in this criminal investigation, the fix was put in?What do we do about it?

According to CNN's Manu Raju, as Heidi was being escorted out, one angry Trump supporter was shouting "Goldman Sachs" at her.

FLASHBACK - THE POLITICS OF CONTRABAND.

It appears that the drug corruption that dominated American politics in the 1990s is at work again. Drugs pour into our society and the drug interdiction efforts seem focused on merely keeping the competition out. The eyes of officialdom stare as hard as they can in the other direction.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is one of the earliest articles I wrote, back in the 1990s. It echoes what Catherine Austin Fitts says below; that America today has become as corrupt and lawless as Mena, Arkansas during the heyday of the Iran-Contra gun and drug running operation!

If you enter an elevator in Toronto, have food and water with you (and maybe somethingt to pee in)

Trapped in a stuck elevator? The problem is worsening in Canada, experts warn
Canada, especially Toronto, is already plunging to an elevator crisis, experts say, with a large number of elevators in need of repairs, replacement.

Ben McIntyre, business manager for Local 50 of the International Union of Elevator Constructors in Ajax, Ont., said some landlords are simply unable or unwilling to spend the needed money. But the real problem, he said, is that routine maintenance has gone by the wayside as overloaded technicians attend to only the most pressing problems.

McIntyre also complains about the dominance of the few big players in the tight-knit industry.

“They really rule it with a tight fist and it’s all about bottom lines more than it is about customer satisfaction or for the riding public,” McIntyre said. “If they can cut a corner to make their bottom line look better ... they will. It’s only when an accident happens or something happens, then they start pointing fingers.”

BEX ALERT - Greenland loses a trillion tonnes of ice in four years - compared to 90 billion tonnes a year during the last century

It’s no news that Greenland is in serious trouble — but now, new research has helped quantify just how bad its problems are. Asatellite study, published last week in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, suggests that the Greenland ice sheet lost a whopping 1 trillion tonnes of ice between the years 2011 and 2014 alone. And a big portion of it came from just five glaciers, about which scientists now have more cause to worry than ever.

Politics Is Fake

Only a psychopath could read someone else's lies from their teleprompter with such feigned emotion. And only the flag-waving, dumbed down masses could believe them. Politicians are puppets, and your only questions should be: "Who is writing their speeches? And who is pulling their strings?" This is a public service announcement from The Corbett Report.

Scott Adams: The Trump Kids Effect

What I’m starting to sniff in the zeitgeist today is that Trump’s kids are totally changing what people think of the father. People are making the semi-rational assumption that anyone who can raise such good kids must be very different in private than he is on the campaign trail.

Rape victim put in jail after breakdown on witness stand

It is hard to imagine a prosecutor putting a rape victim who is bipolar in jail. But that's exactly what Channel 2 Investigates uncovered in a two-part series.

After a rape victim named Jenny had an obvious mental breakdown while testifying against her attacker, Harris County prosecutors decided the best way to make sure she'd return to complete her testimony was to lock her up in the Harris County Jail.

Donald Duck cleared of extremism charges by court in Russian Far East

The highest court in the Russian Far Eastern region of Kamchatka has ordered the cancelation of an earlier ruling recognizing a 1942 Disney cartoon depicting Donald Duck’s adventures in Nazi Germany as ‘extremist material’.

The ruling in question was passed by the city court of Petropavlovsk Kamchatsky in 2010. Back then the judge gave a six-month suspended sentence to a local resident for distributing extremist materials over the internet. The propaganda included the Oscar-winning animation ‘Der Fuehrer's Face’ that the accused called ‘Donald Duck and Fascism’ in Russian and because of this the film has been included in the Russian federal list of banned extremist materials.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Donald Duck?!?

The animation in question was actually an ANTI-Nazi propaganda piece.
