State CPS Agents Seize Family's Kids With No Due Process, Outraged Armed Father Seizes Children Back From Foster Parents

The facetious headline above is made up, yet not to say unwarranted in our current society. This is to make a point. Just a few more thoughts on the whole Oregon fiasco. This isn't to demonize LaVoy Finicum or to say he deserved to die for his acts- I think the whole ordeal could have been handled much better and non violently, on both sides. I am going to 'dare' offer a critical analysis of someone who's been martyred and lionized by the 'patriot' community. Finicum admitted in the past that he made his living NOT as a rancher, but as a "foster parent" to dozens of kids over the years. Did he ever mind or oppose the "tyranny" of the state stealing people's kids? Which is at the very least equally egregious, one could even argue infinitely worse than stealing their lands?

David Rockefeller Says Conspiracy About ‘One World Order’ Is True

The name Rockefeller has been associated with wealth, power, politics, finance, diplomacy, philanthropy, marijuana prohibition, aliens, UFO’s and conspiracy theories.

One such conspiracy theory is the creation of a ‘one world order’, according to which a group of ‘Elites’, including David, are milking the system for their own benefits and the benefit of their friends and fellow conspirators against the interest of the United States.

They have been accused of setting up institutions such as the ‘Trilateral Commission’ and the ‘Bilderberg Group’ among others to advance their interests nationally and globally.

Turkish Forces Begin Shelling of Airbase Held by Kurds in Syria's Aleppo

Turkish forces have started shelling an airbase and a village, recently captured by Kurds, in Syria's northern Aleppo region, Al Mayadeen television reported Saturday.
"Turkish forces started shelling People's Protection Units [YPG] positions on the territory of the Minnigh airbase," an YPG spokesperson told the channel.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wonder on what the Vegas odds are regarding just how long Russia allows this to continue, without fighting back against Turkish forces; this is a clear escalation, and a complete violation of Syrian sovereign territory.

And unfortunately, as for that ceasefire announced only days ago; in the immortal words of the television character Tony Soprano, "fuhgettaboutit!!"

How Trump Should Smash Cruz

Ted Cruz is running a vicious attack ad against Donald Trump. But Trump can fire back at Cruz though from the tax angle. Cruz has proposed a value added tax. The VAT is total evil. Trump should run an ad something along these lines: Voiceover: Ted Cruz wants to place a new tax on the nation. A value added tax, But he is too dishonest to call it by its real name. Don't be fooled. It would require taxes be paid at every stage of production and it would require a tax army to enforce. This should be accompanied with video of military dressed soldiers with "VAT Tax enforcer" nazi-type patches carrying machines guns visiting a bakery, a nursery school and a factory forcing the owners to fork over cash.

Intel Chief Confirms Our Worst Nightmares: Home Smart Devices Are Ideal for Spying on You

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper stated to the Senate Armed Services Committee that the Internet of Things (IoT) — so-called “smart” devices, vehicles, and appliances which employ various computer technologies — may be used to spy and keep tabs on people in the future.
“In the future, intelligence services might use the IoT for identification, surveillance, monitoring, location tracking, and targeting for recruitment, or to gain access to networks or user credentials,” Clapper’s prepared testimony claimed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. Clapper, I have a modest proposal to defeat any possible terrorism headed toward the US from any alleged enemy country; the US needs to stop mucking about in other countries to expropriate resources to which it has no legitimate moral claim!!

No, you don't need to thank me; I'm just a gal who believes that World War III is a very bad idea.

FEEL THE BERN: WATCH SANDERS CALL HILLARY OUT ON HER MENTOR, WAR CRIMINAL HENRY KISSINGER

If anything watch-worthy came out of the Democratic debate, it was this moment where Sanders called out Hillary for her ties to Henry Kissinger.
“I find it rather amazing, as I happen to believe that Henry Kissinger was one of the most destructive Secretaries of State in the modern history of this country,” Sanders went off. “I am proud to say that Henry Kissinger is not my friend. I will not take advice from Henry Kissinger.”

The topic even drew a gasp of “Oh God” from one of the debate moderators (which she tried to cover by fake coughing), probably because she couldn’t believe he would bring that up in front of everybody on live TV.
Good.
Say what you want about his politics, but at least someone with a podium and mic is calling Hillary out of her crimes in this election. You can tell she’s pissed about it, too.
Again, good.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If Clinton steals the election (and she has had the opportunity to learn at the feet of masters on this), and as a protegee of the war criminal Henry Kissinger, expect more wars, more income inequality, more dictatorship, more surveillance, more job offshoring/outsourcing and more eviscerating of the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

800 GREEK FARMERS STORM AGRICULTURE MINISTRY IN ATHENS, POLICE DEPLOY TEAR GAS

Police in Athens have used tear gas to disperse a rally of farmers protesting against pension austerity measures as they were pelting the Agriculture Ministry with stones. A larger protest demonstration is due to start later Friday, according to "Russia Today" news network.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Pension Austerity", meaning "Thanks for all the money you paid in, but we have to give the payout to the bankers!"

Turkey’s Erdogan warns patience will run out on Syria

Turkey’s patience may run out over the crisis in Syria and it could be forced to take action, President Tayyip Erdogan said on Thursday, calling on the United Nations to do more to prevent what he said was “ethnic cleansing” in the country.

Erdogan accused the United Nations of insincerity in calling on Turkey to do more to help Syrian refugees instead of taking action to prevent the bloodshed in its southern neighbour. Russian war planes have been bombing around the Syrian city of Aleppo in support of a Syrian government offensive to recapture the city, sending tens of thousands of people fleeing to the Turkish border.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This guy is a good one to talk about alleged "ethnic cleansing", when his government continues its serial genocide against Turkey's ethnic Kurds!!

SAUDI ARABIA SENDS TROOPS AND FIGHTER JETS TO MILITARY BASE IN TURKEY AHEAD OF INTERVENTION AGAINST ISIS IN SYRIA

Saudi Arabia is sending troops and fighter jets to Turkey’s Incirlik military base ahead of a possible ground invasion of Syria. The Turkish foreign minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu, confirmed the deployment in a statement to the Yeni ?afak newspaper on Saturday, days before a temporary ceasefire is due to come into force.

Syrian Rebels: Ceasefire Deal Won’t Work

After yesterday’s ceasefire agreement on Syria, a lot of media outlets are expressing surprise that fighting is continuing today, and pointing to continued Russian airstrikes. The deal, however, does not take effect for another week.

The negativity toward the deal, and the effort to single out Russia actually are reflecting closely what the US-backed rebel factions are saying, as they insist the deal will “never work” and complain about the terms of the pact.

Rebels expressed particular annoyance that Russia is allowed to continue its air campaign at all, even with the deal limiting them to airstrikes against ISIS and al-Qaeda’s Nusra Front. It would’ve been unthinkable, however, for the ceasefire deal to oblige an end to attacks on ISIS.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears to me that the deal is engineered to fail.

I would suggest that we will, most probably, be seeing both Saudi and Turkish groups on the ground in Syria in the very near future; at that point, Russia will have to do what it has promised, and take those troops out with extreme prejudice.

12-minute video: 5 stages of human awakening: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance; and why your leadership matters for the revolution just ahead

*hyperlinks/video live at source*

hat tips: Zen Gardner and Matrix World Disclosure

https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=738&v=EuVStS1HcSU

Those of us relatively awake have gone through some form of the five stages of grieving, and observe fellow humans mostly stuck in its first stage: denial.

As .01% Emperor’s New Clothes obvious crimes centering in war, money, and lies become more outrageous, more of us will choose integrity and courage to voice the obvious. The exposure and end of .01% criminal oligarchy will then end in a relative moment; at that point our relative leadership on this journey will be essential for transition.

Our leadership isn’t much, we know, and our relative acceptance of the facts puts us in position for constructive vision to build a brighter future.

We have researched solutions, and are ready to work in good-faith effort with honest data.

DNC rolls back Obama ban on contributions from federal lobbyists

The Democratic National Committee has rolled back restrictions introduced by presidential candidate Barack Obama in 2008 that banned donations from federal lobbyists and political action committees.

The decision was viewed with disappointment Friday morning by good government activists who saw it as a step backward in the effort to limit special interest influence in Washington. Some suggested it could provide an advantage to Hillary Clinton’s fundraising efforts.

“It is a major step in the wrong direction,” said longtime reform advocate Fred Wertheimer. “And it is completely out of touch with the clear public rejection of the role of political money in Washington,” expressed during the 2016 campaign.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If Debbie Wassermann-Schultz's DNC is doing this right now, the Clinton campaign is running scared.

Hillary Clinton Sugarcoating Her Disastrous Record

Bernie Sanders is far too easy on Hillary Clinton in their debates. Clinton flaunts her record and experience in ways that Sanders could use to expose her serious vulnerabilities and disqualifications for becoming president. Sanders responds to Clinton's points, but without the precision that could demolish her arrogance.

For example, she repeatedly says that Sanders has not levelled with people about the cost of full Medicare for all, or single-payer. Really? In other countries, single-payer is far simpler and more efficient than our present profiteering, wasteful, corporatized healthcare industry. Canada covers all of its citizens, with free choice of doctors and hospitals, for about $4,500 per capita, compared to the over $9,000 per capita cost in the U.S. system that still leaves tens of millions of people uninsured or under insured.

Detailed studies in the New England Journal of Medicine show big savings from a single-payer system in our country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF you want more wars, more income inequality, more job offshoring/outsourcing, more corporately purchased legislation, more poverty, and more of a sense of complete irrelevance as a voter, by all means, please support Hillary Clinton!!

NEW YORK TIMES THREATENS TO SUE PUBLISHER OF AN ART BOOK CRITICAL OF THE PAPER'S WAR COVERAGE

The critically acclaimed War Is Beautiful: The New York Times Pictorial Guide to the Glamour of Armed Conflict examines the ways in which the newspaper happily propagated the Bush Administration's lies about weapons of mass destruction in Iraq that resulted in a senseless war that hurt millions of people and immensely enriched Halliburton, Blackwater, the Carlyle Group and other companies with close ties to the Bush and the Cheney families.
As Ben Collins of the Daily Beast writes, "The book makes an artful, journalistic point: Photography on the front page of the paper of record depicted the conflict in rosy, gorgeous, cinematic ways, like the first scene in Apocalypse Now." And the book's author, David Shields bought the rights to use all the photos in the book. Why then, is the The New York Times suing the publisher for $19,000? Because the inside back cover of the book is decorated with 64 thumbnail photos from the front pages of the NYT.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is what whorespondents do; clothe the filth of lies in the most exquisite silk of fantasy in order to perpetuate a desired narrative.

Jeb Bush On His Foreign Policy

Jeb Bush On His Foreign Policy Chops: Florida National Guard Ran Abu Ghraib Prison
“I was commander-in-chief of the National Guard. I visited Iraq and Afghanistan. The National Guard in Florida took the responsibility of running Abu Ghraib prison. I walked that prison. I saw the heroic effort of the citizen soldiers taking care of their job with great distinction. I supported our Guard in every possible way.”

Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush cited his experience as head of the Florida National Guard in a radio interview Friday to counter claims from Marco Rubio that he lacked foreign policy credentials. The former Florida governor singled out the Florida Guard that ran the scandal-plagued Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq as proof of his foreign policy chops.

Do You Realize If Jeb or Hillary Wins, It Could Be 30+ Years of Bushes and Clintons in the White House?

And now, the American people are facing an election where Hillary Clinton is running against Jeb Bush for president. Should one of them win (and the game has obviously been rigged in favor of our two unofficial dynasties), and should that person get two terms, it’ll officially be 28 of the 36 years between 1989 and 2025.

You watch. It will somehow come down to America being forced to put a Bush or a Clinton back in the White House, and quite likely the “choice” will be between one or the other.

Obama Keeps Public in Dark About 'Black Budget' Requests

Disclosing any agency-specific information -- such as whether the controversial National Security Agency or lesser-known National Reconnaissance Office won backing for a raise or a cut -- “could harm national security,” the Office of the Director of National Intelligence said Tuesday in a press release.

Agency-specific figures will be reviewed and debated behind closed committee doors, where only some representatives will have a meaningful opportunity for input. Members of Congress not serving on the relevant committees can gain access to the information, but many are unwilling to make the effort or do not do so out of principle.

The Obama administration has resisted releasing the agency-specific requests despite a sustained campaign following whistleblower Edward Snowden’s 2013 disclosures about mass surveillance, making continued non-disclosure no surprise.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Imagine my (absence of) shock here!!

Biggest Brother Dearest, President Obama, doesn't want this info known, because these budgets many times are engineered for massive government destabilization abroad, to attempt to establish governments more toward the US government's liking.

U.S. says wins Saudi air campaign commitment against Islamic State

U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter, who has been under pressure to shore up support from Sunni Arab allies to fight the Islamic State group, on Thursday welcomed a commitment from Saudi Arabia to expand its role in air strikes against the Sunni militants.

At a gathering of more than two dozen defense ministers at NATO headquarters, Saudi Arabia, which has quietly resumed its participation in air strikes in the past few weeks, also renewed the possibility of sending forces into Syria.

"Saudi Arabia's defense minister ... indicated that the Kingdom is reinvigorating its commitment to the coalition air campaign, which is very welcome news, and contributing in other critical ways on the ground," Carter said after the talks in Brussels.

Carter, broadly praising contributions from allies, said the U.S.-led war against Islamic State would be won despite former Cold War foe Russia's role in the civil war in Syria on the side of President Bashar al-Assad's government.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't know what the Vegas odds are on this, but I have to wonder: when do air strikes morph into a ground invasion by either Saudi Arabia or Turkey, SecDef Carter?!?

Because at that point, Russia will follow through on what both Medvedev and Putin have promised, and attack those groups on the ground in Syria.

Turkey is a NATO MEMBER, which can invoke Article 5 of the NATO agreement, meaning NATO will have to attack Russia, and World War III is on for real.

This would be a slo-mo trainreck, which may well ultimately devastating for both the region, this country, and the world.

Obama: 'Strange Things' Happen When Voters Are Scared

President Barack Obama said Thursday that "strange things" can happen in politics when voters are scared and that the angst people are feeling across the country is finding voice in both the Republican and Democratic parties.

"We have to listen to that," Obama said at a Democratic Party fundraiser at the San Francisco-area home of supporter and venture capitalist Steve Westly.

Obama commented two days after billionaire businessman Donald Trump rode that wave of voter anger at traditional politicians to a commanding win in New Hampshire's Republican presidential primary. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders did the same in the state's Democratic primary, trouncing longtime front-runner Hillary Clinton by double digits.

Obama said the country is at "an interesting political moment" but noted that it's still early in the process for choosing the presidential nominees.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. President, forgive me sir, but to what "economic and other progress" do you allude in that last statement?!?

The real unemployment numbers are not the complete, utter, and laughable fantasy that the Department of Labor spews forth; the real numbers are closer to 32- 33 percent out of of work, considering that over 100 million people cannot find jobs, and have given up finding jobs.

The corporate offshoring/outsourcing of American jobs continues apace, with no relief in sight. In fact, as I type this, Carrier Air Conditioner Corporation is relocating from Indiana to Mexico, leaving over 1400 jobless.
And there are no jobs to replace what the people were making here, only minimum wage jobs, and a complete contraction of their standard of living.

Sir, these people, and other people in similar circumstances absolutely have the right to be both scared, and angry.

I, and many Americans who think like me would like to ask you: do you see the complete and utter destruction of America's middle class "progress"?!?

The world is a far more dangerous place than when you took the oath of office in January, 2009. The situation in Afghanistan continues to fester; and US and NATO intervention in Libya, coupled with the assassination of Ghadaffi, have made the country a powder-keg, with two separate governments which will not talk to each other.

The Ukraine is about to fall into an economic abyss, thanks to the US and NATO-sponsored putsch which put Poroshenko in power.

Iraq is convulsing, courtesy of continued US intervention and the US training and supplying of ISIS.

Syria is in the throes of a civil war, courtesy of US intervention to oust Al-Assad. Russia has intervened, and is getting most of the Jihadis out. It has threatened war against any nation attempting to invade Syria, such as Saudi Arabia and Turkey, which have been making noises in that direction.

And of course, we cannot forget Yemen, which courtesy of Saudi Arabia, which is armed and enabled by the US government, has been bombed in to total devastation, because the Yemenite people had the gall to throw out their US sponsored puppet, Al-Hadi. Hospitals, schools, and residences are routinely shelled.

So no, Mr. President, we do not feel either economically or geopolitically more secure than we were than when you took office. And that anger, and concern, over our current state, and the state of this government, will effect the outcome of the coming election in a way that dirty tricks and vote rigging will not be able to counter.

WHY NOT BEING FRIENDS WITH A WAR CRIMINAL LIKE HENRY KISSINGER MATTERS

In the midst of questioning the United States’ history of overthrowing and meddling in other countries’ governments, Bernie Sanders denounced Hillary Clinton for befriending and taking advice from former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger.

They suggested millennials did not care about what Kissinger did either.

How the U.S. Undermines Its Ability to Promote Human Rights in Egypt

Under Secretary of State Sarah Sewall deserves praise for her speech in Cairo on February 10, where she simply told the truth about the disturbing situation in President Sisi's Egypt.

Instead of the wishful thinking of Secretary Kerry, who seems unable to talk about Egypt without referring to an illusory "transition to democracy," Sewall noted the economic, security, and political challenges facing Egypt. She had the courage to make the case to her hosts that the way to meet the challenges facing Egyptian society is through tolerance, inclusiveness, and respect for universal human rights.

She said frankly, "we are deeply concerned about the suppression of civil liberties, including societal and government restrictions on freedoms of expression and the press and the freedom of assembly and association... and academic freedom."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, the problem is just not Egypt; the US government routinely props up tinpot dictators around the world, then wonders what the heck went wrong when those governments go under, sometimes through violent revolution, and the replacement governments are hugely anti-American.

The late President Kennedy said it best: "When peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution is inevitable."

And yet, let's look at all the dictators the US government is now supporting; from Ukraine to Bahrain, to Israel, to Turkey; just take a look at what these people are doing to their own people, who simply wish to demonstrate for peaceful change.

Then, let's take a look in the mirror, shall we?!? It is a profoundly disturbing image we see, when unarmed Americans are assassinated, and wounded by police; when peaceful demonstrators are hit with teargas and rubber bullets; when torture is being utilized against prisoners of war at Gitmo (and you cannot call the NG feeding they are doing to hunger strikers anything but.)

Unfortunately, this country has morphed into a creature I barely recognise, at this point in time.

Rooted deeply in a war culture, where hard-won, good-faith negotiations are shunned and avoided like the plague. Haunted by deep-state surveillance, and the suppression of the most fundamental liberties, America is no longer "the land of the free, and the home of the brave", with precious few exceptions; it has become "the land of the surveilled, and the home of the cowed."

Rick Snyder To Testify About Flint Water Crisis On Capitol Hill

Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder (R) has asked to testify before members of Congress about the Flint water crisis.

Democrats were furious that House Oversight Committee chairman Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) hadn't called Snyder to testify at an earlier hearing on Flint, where the water has been poisoned by high lead levels since 2014. Snyder's office said in a release that he called Chaffetz Thursday and offered to make the trip.

"The people of Flint have suffered because they were failed by all levels of government, and so it is understandable that there are questions at all levels of government," Snyder said in the release.

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), the top Democrat on the oversight committee, disputed Snyder's characterization of his decision to testify.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF there is no legal and robust way of getting this man out of office before the end of his term, I hope and pray that these hearings crucify Snyder, politically, to the point that he can never, ever again run for public office.

In my world, the poisoning of children in the way he and his minions did, constitutes reckless public endangerment, and they all should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of Federal and State law, including serving hard jail time.

No matter what kind of treatments, either chelation therapy, or intravenous vitamin C, these kids get, the treatments cannot undo the damage which has already been done to their brains.

Ohio cop gleefully celebrates suicide of Black Lives Matter activist: ‘Love a happy ending’

A Fairborn, Ohio police officer has been suspended for a Facebook comment celebrating the suicide of a Black Lives Matter activist, the Dayton Daily News reports.

On a news story posted to Ohio Politics about the suicide death of MarShawn McCarrel, 23, at the Ohio statehouse, Fairborn Police officer Lee Cyr wrote, “Love a happy ending.”

McCarrel was a committed activist who organized to help feed homeless people and guide young people in his community. He also helped organize protests in Ohio after Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson shot and killed unarmed teen, Mike Brown in 2014. He was apparently struggling just before his death and wrote on social media that his “demons won” on the day he died.

Cyr’s post was just one of many disturbing attacks on the post about McCarrel, according to the Daily News. Others wrote things like, “One less to worry about,” and “One down, many more to go.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This country lost a good man, a mentor, and a humanitarian the day McCarrel committed suicide.

The horrifically snide, insensitive (and in my world, immoral) remarks about his death on Facebook are a demonstration of just how deeply racially divided this country is, in the 21st century: we need to fix this, and quickly.

‘F*ck you!’: Indiana workers react with outrage after being told their jobs are moving to Mexico

In a video uploaded to YouTube, a gathering of workers at an Indianapolis air conditioning manufacturing plant are stunned and enraged when told they’ll soon be out of work because the company is moving their jobs to Mexico.

The large crowd of employees of a Carrier Air Conditioner manufacturing plant in Indianapolis can be seen milling around as a speaker — dressed in a suit and standing on a stage — addresses them and gives them the bad news.

“The best way to stay competitive and protect the business for long-term is to move production from our facility in Indianapolis to Monterrey, Mexico,” the man can be heard explaining.

The crowd reacts with shouts of outrage, including one man who can be heard yelling, “F*ck you.”

Following that bombshell, he adds that the local distribution center will also be closed, putting more people out of work.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Lloyd Blankfein, Hillary Clinton, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio; so after reading this, you still cannot imagine why the electorate in 2016 is so enraged against the establishment?!?

The offshoring/outsourcing of American jobs continues unabated, and when manufacturing jobs go overseas, there are no high paying jobs available, or to train for, because US corporations use the visa programs to hire foreign workers at substantially lower wages than they would have to pay a born-American.

And you wonder why retail is dying in this country?!? Figure it out; on personal austerity, sometimes working 3 or 4 low-paying jobs to barely cover the rent, pay the bills, and feed the family, people have no discretionary income to spend.

It is just that simple.

And yet you, and people like you, have become absolutely tone-deaf and blind to the human, and financial consequences of offshoring.

And I would like to remind you: people, having to deal with these circumstances, have a breaking point.

As a Christian pacifist and activist I never condone violence; but I do understand how violence can happen.

I consistently urge people not to be violent, in their protests against a system which has well and really screwed them, because violence is something that the US government and states are ready to put down with extreme prejudice.

I counsel patience.

With a nearly $30 trillion dollar Federal deficit, coupled with the decline of the American dollar, plus the gyrations in the stock markets globally, this country may well come unglued long before any election can begin to fix it, and perhaps, as horrific as it sounds, that may not be a bad thing, for the economic and emotional health of its people.

Energy Department Investigated By Congress For Firing Whistleblower

The Department of Energy (DOE) is being investigated by the House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology for allegedly retaliating against a whistleblower who provided Congress with information on a department program.

“After briefing Republican staff of the House Science Committee, a Department of Energy (DOE) employee was apparently fired because of the information they provided,” Texas Republican Rep. Lamar Smith , chairman of the House science committee, told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

“It is unlawful for a federal employee to be fired because they answered questions from Congress,” Smith said. “Retaliation against whistleblowers is a serious offense. While the employee has since returned to federal service, concerns remain surrounding the circumstances of their termination.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This "killing the messenger" culture at the DOE, and in other governmental bureaucracies just has to stop, and stop now.

Would the DOE have preferred that this person lie to Congress?!? Just what the hell does the DOE have to hide?!?

FEDS PUSH NEW PLAN FOR HOME VISITS TO CHECK ON PARENTS

The federal government is seeking to create a new bureaucracy that would intervene in family life and could even see state-appointed monitors conduct routine home visits to assess a child’s well-being.

The U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has published adraft documentwhich outlines a plan that will treat families as “equal partners” in the raising of children, opening the door for government intrusion at all levels.

The paper describes how government employees will intervene to provide, “monitoring goals for the children at home and the classroom,” and that if parents are failing to meet the standards set, “evidence-based parenting interventions” will be made to, “ensure that children’s social-emotional and behavioral needs are met.”

The document reveals how the state will help oversee, “constant monitoring and communication regarding children’s social-emotional and behavioral health.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, for all you with kids and skills, please get out of this country while you still can; the window for that escape is closing, and soon.

And if you cannot leave the country, move somewhere rural, and home school your children.

"Government monitors" to intrude on family life?!? If THIS doesn't cause the hair on the back of your neck to stand up straight, and plait itself, nothing will!!

Thank you very much, I don't think so.

America’s Corrupt Media – How Reporters Took Direct Orders from Hillary Clinton’s Staff

If you really want to know how weak Hillary Clinton is as a candidate, you merely have to appreciate that the U.S. media essentially acts as her own personal PR firm, yet the public still recognizes her as a dishonest crook. Brace yourself for the following story, it’s huge.

Earlier this week, we learned from Gawker that at least one U.S. reporter traded content in his article for information from Hillary Clinton’s staff while she was Secretary of State. In what is an almost hard to believe exchange, Marc Ambinder of The Atlantic, agreed to insert specific words and imagery into his article in return for a copy of Hillary’s upcoming speech at the Council on Foreign Relations.

We have the exact exchange thanks to emails released from a 2012 Freedom of Information Act Request (FOIA). Gawker reports:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is why we can no longer trust corporate whorespondents or newsreaders to tell us anything that vaguely approximates the truth.

Their job, these days, is to cloak the filth of lies with the exquisitely beautiful silk of pre-determined narratives, which benefit those for whom they lie, either geopolitically, or economically.

In short, they are nearly all bought, and compromised.

‘People aren’t dumb’: Sanders attacks Clinton’s effort to distance herself from Wall Street

Senator Bernie Sanders criticized former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as she said that Wall Street donations wouldn’t influence her decision-making. The Vermont senator argued that she shouldn’t “insult the intelligence of the American people.”

The Clintons have been insulting Americans for twenty years now!

3-minute rap video: Obama continues illegal US Wars of Aggression that’s killed 30 million+ since WW2. Arrests are when now?

*hyperlinks/video live at source*

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z4OI0GUCI_A

Lowkey’s 3-minute rap begins with history that validates global polling that the US is the greatest threat to peace; voted three times more dangerous than any other country.

The data confirm this conclusion:

Since WW2, Earth has had 248 armed conflicts. The US started 201 of them (81%).
These US-started armed attacks have killed ~30 million and counting; 90% of these deaths are innocent children, the elderly and ordinary working civilian women and men.
The US has war-murdered more than Hitler’s Nazis.
US official reports now confirm all “reasons” the US told for current armed attacks were known to be false as they were told.
These lie-started US wars are not even close to lawful.

FLASHBACK - Marc Tucker's "Dear Hillary" Letter

Marc Tucker is president of the National Center on Education and the Economy (NCEE). He wrote an 18-page letter, now famous as Marc Tucker's "Dear Hillary" Letter, to Hillary Clinton a week after the Clintons were first elected President. At the time Hillary served with Tucker on the Board of NCEE, they were (and remain) comrades. The letter lays out the master plan of the Clinton Administration to take over the entire U.S. educational system so that it can serve national economic planning of the workforce. The letter makes it clear that Hillary participated in the development of that plan some time before the election, though it was scarcely reported at the time. The plan is sweeping in scope, and largely signed into law in 1994 by Clinton's Democratically controlled Congress (in the Goals 2000 Act, the School-to-Work Act, and the reauthorized Elementary and Secondary Education Act).

EPA Rule To Ban Car Modification

No more NASCAR. Obama just made more friends for liberty!

The Obama administration is looking to close down the automotive aftermarket. Tucked deep within a proposed rulemaking governing diesel truck engines, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) introduced language that would prohibit any changes to an automobile's engine or exhaust after it leaves the factory. The Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) raised the alarm Monday after discovering the hidden provision.

SOROS: 'PUTIN AIMS AT EU DISINTEGRATION, THREAT FROM RUSSIA BIGGER THAN FROM JIHADI ATTACKS'

American and EU leaders are making a "grievous error" by taking Russian President Vladimir Putin for their ally in the fight against Islamic State, billionaire investor George Soros has stated. Putin's real aim is the EU's disintegration, Soros alleged. In an opinion piece for Project-syndicate.org, the billionaire stated that "the best way to [cause the disintegration of the Euro bloc] is to flood the EU with Syrian refugees."

Webmaster addition: The EU is being torn apart by banker debt and the refugees. But Soros wants war with Russia, and drops the blame on them.

Soros is starting to remind me of the character General Midwinter from the 1967 film, "Billion Dollar Brain." Midwinter is a billionaire who wants to bring down Russia using plans created by the film title's computer. Soros seems to be the real-life version.

Snyder to Flint: Pick up the phone. It's your governor

Fears over eating produce from gardens in Flint fed by suspect water. The plight of children who drank city water but now live elsewhere. A lack of information about how to survive when lead-tainted water still flows from taps.

Those were the revelations that Gov. Rick Snyder said he gleaned Thursday from talking to Flint residents by phone during a virtual town hall about the city's drinking water crisis.

snip: A further court hearing in May will decide whether the interim order should be made into a full order, which has a minimum duration of two years and can last indefinitely.

Sexual risk orders were introduced in England and Wales in March last year and can be applied to any individual who the police believe poses a risk of sexual harm, even if they have never been convicted of a crime.

LIBERTY ACTIVISTS AND ISIS WILL SOON BE TREATED AS IDENTICAL THREATS

Many of us saw it coming a long time ago — increasing confrontation between liberty proponents and the corrupt federal establishment leading to increasing calls by political elites and bureaucrats to apply to American citizens the terrorism countermeasures designed for foreign combatants. It was only a matter of time and timing.

My stance has always been that the elites would wait until there was ample social and political distraction; a fog of fear allowing them to move more aggressively against anti-globalists. We are not quite there yet, but the ground is clearly being prepared.

Exclusive: Former Obama Defense Intel Chief Says Hillary Should ‘Step Down’

President Barack Obama’s former director of the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) believes Hillary Clinton should drop out of the presidential race to clear the way for the probe of her private email server by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

In an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller News Foundation, Lt. Gen. Michael T. Flynn (Ret.) said he thought the former Secretary of State should leave the Democratic presidential race: ”I think Hillary Clinton, for the good of the country, should step down and let this FBI investigation play out.”

State Dept: Top Official Didn’t Know About Hillary’s Server, Even Though He Was On Email Discussing It

A spokesman for the State Department insisted during a press conference on Wednesday that Patrick Kennedy, the Under Secretary of Management at the department, was not aware Hillary Clinton maintained a private server in her home while she was secretary of state.

But that claim — made by spokesman Mark Toner — is a curious one given that emails published by The Daily Caller last month show that Kennedy was involved in an August 2011 email exchange with two of Clinton’s top aides and another State Department official in which Clinton’s private email server was discussed.

FLASHBACK - VOTE FRAUD AND THE BANKRUPTCY OF THE UNITED STATES

In light of the numerous incidents of vote fraud uncovered through the years and the quite obvious stonewall on the subject by the officials who benefit from rigged elections and the media that at least helps in the rigging, it is dangerous to assume that American elections are honest. The burden of proof must lie with VNS and the voting machine companies to prove their honesty.

In an atmosphere of doubt about the validity of the voting process, it appears that the entire voting process is a sham, a trick to fool the American people into accepting whatever is done to them by creating the illusion that the people somehow voted for and approved of whatever is being done. That's how Batista fooled the Cuban people. That's how the USSR fooled the Soviet citizens. And that's how the American government fools us.

Do We The People owe that $100+ trillion? No, we do not. It was borrowed without our permission. No citizen agreed to repay that money.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Now that Hillary is showing America how the elections are actually decided (fraud and political machines) it is time to remind everyone of a simple axiom. If we don;t get to choose the government, we are not responsible for the debt they have run up!

“The use of secret courts is a place where trials take place that is not open to the public, nor generally reported in the news and generally no official record of the case or the judge’s verdict is made available. Often there is no legal allegation. The accused is usually not able to obtain the counsel of an lawyer or confront witnesses for the prosecution, and the proceedings are characterised by a perceived miscarriage of justice to the benefit of the ruling powers of the society. This is the stuff of cold war Russia and Nazi Germany – right? Think again.”

Central Banks Are Trojan Horses, Looting Their Host Nations

A Nobel prize winning economist, former chief economist and senior vice president of the World Bank, and chairman of the President’s council of economic advisers (Joseph Stiglitz) says that the International Monetary Fund and World Bank loan money to third world countries as a way to force them to open up their markets and resources for looting by the West.

Do central banks do something similar?

Economics professor Richard Werner – who created the concept of quantitative easing – has documented that central banks intentionally impoverish their host countries to justify economic and legal changes which allow looting by foreign interests.

Webmaster's Commentary:
