THE STING: HOW THE FBI CREATED A TERRORIST

Informant-led sting operations are central to the FBI’s counterterrorism program. Of 508 defendants prosecuted in federal terrorism-related cases in the decade after 9/11, 243 were involved with an FBI informant, while 158 were the targets of sting operations. Of those cases, an informant or FBI undercover operative led 49 defendants in their terrorism plots, similar to the way Osmakac was led in his.

ON EVE OF ELECTION, NETANYAHU PROMISES NO PALESTINIAN STATE IF RE-ELECTED

On the eve of national elections in Israel, politically-embattled Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed that if he and his Likud Party were returned to power for another term he would make sure that an independent Palestinian state would not come into being. The comments come as a reversal of official Israeli government policy which, like the U.S. government, states that a two-state solution is the preferred outcome for the decades-long conflict between Israel and the Palestinians.

CIA WORKED WITH DOJ TO RE-PURPOSE FOREIGN SURVEILLANCE AIRBORNE CELL TOWER SPOOFERS FOR DOMESTIC USE

The CIA's recent rebranding as Valhalla for US cyberwarriors notwithstanding, the agency's general focus has been intelligence gathering on foreign governments, corporations and people. That it has often mistaken "torturing people into saying whatever they can to make it stop" for "intelligence gathering" isn't necessarily germane to the following discussion, but it's worth noting that the CIA is almost single-handedly responsible for destroying the term "extraordinary rendition" -- a formerly innocuous (and complimentary) term previously used to highlight something like, say, Johnny Cash's amazing cover of Soundgarden's' "Rusty Cage." (That Cash's two best covers are "Hurt" and "Rusty Cage" is not germane to the discussion of CIA torture programs, but what a coincidence!)

Did Ferguson PD Just Arrest the Wrong Guy?

When two officers with the Ferguson Police Department were shot last week, it was safe to assume that they would eventually get their man, even if it wasn’t really “their man.” For the most part, whenever the life of an authority figure is attempted in such a public way (especially if that attempt was successful), the police will always find someone to arrest. They have to.

They must always maintain the illusion that they have everything under control and that nobody can get away with such a crime. Nothing indicates a lack of control, quite like having a police officer ambushed and shot, so somebody has to pay no matter what.

Toy Guns in America: The 1950s Versus Today (Video)

Check out this old toy gun commercial from the 1950s or '60s and compare it to how children who play with toy guns (or even their own food or fingers fashioned like a gun) are treated today.

Do you think kids today are going to want to uphold their 2nd Amendment rights after they are terrorized and suspended or expelled by their schools for chewing a breakfast tart into an L-shape or being forced at age five to undergo a psych eval for bringing a Hello Kitty bubble gun to class? Even little kids playing with finger guns are considered a serious threat today.

Intelligence Officer: Every Single Terrorist Attack In U.S Was a False Flag Attack… Or Egged On By the Government

In the United States, every single terrorist incident we have had has been a false flag, or has been an informant pushed on by the FBI.

In fact, we now have citizens taking out restraining orders against FBI informants that are trying to incite terrorism.

We’ve become a lunatic asylum.

Pedophilia in Britain ‘Woven into the Fabric of Society’

As the UK has launched a new-judge led inquiry panel to investigate a pedophile ring operated in 1980s, the Home Secretary warns the allegations are just a “tip of an iceberg” and the problem is “woven, covertly, into the fabric of our society.”

Following a spate of allegations concerning the abuse of children by adults, many of who abused their positions of power and status, Home Secretary Theresa May said Britons still do not appreciate the “true scale of that abuse.”

Anti Police State App 'Sidekik' Features Real-Time Legal Aid

Activist Post

Studies have shown that police are held almost completely unaccountable by the current systems of governmental oversight. Perhaps this is the reason why you are 9 times more likely to be killed by a law enforcement officer than a terrorist. Rather than wait for bloated bureaucracy or corrupt government to save the day, we as activists have to find our own solutions. Technology is one of these solutions. Each citizen needs to become a member of the media and record everything that they see during encounters with the police.

We previously reported on the launch of a smartphone app called Sidekik which required funding to make it as easy as possible for you not only to record the police and upload that recording offsite, but to put you in immediate contact with legal representation to help you navigate the encounter ... in real-time.

We are happy to report that activist efforts have funded Phase 1 of Sidekik. Developers are now prepared to enter Phase 2...

FDA PROPOSES TO LET DRUG COMPANIES UNDERMINE OFFICIAL SAFETY WARNINGS

The Food and Drug Administration is proposing to allow pharmaceutical companies to undermine official safety warnings in sales presentations to customers. While an FDA warning about a drug’s dangers can scare off buyers, the new proposal would allow companies to provide doctors, hospitals and other customers with information that conflicts with official advice, which is typically developed after a rigorous scientific process.

Tory chairman Grant Shapps admits he 'screwed up' by falsely claiming he'd never worked as get-rich-quick salesman after becoming an MP

Conservative party chairman Grant Shapps was facing growing calls to resign this morning after being forced to admit he did work as a get-rich-quick salesman under a false name after entering Parliament.

Mr Shapps said he had 'screwed up' by insisting 'over firmly' that he had never had a second job after becoming an MP.

It comes after a recording emerged from 2006, a year after he was elected to Parliament, capturing the MP selling self-help guide Stinking Rich 3 and claiming his products could make listeners a 'ton of cash'.

Despite the revelation, David Cameron this morning insisted he had full confidence in the Conservative party chairman.

Executive Petrobras Admits Taking Bribes

A Executive of the Brazilian state oil company told a congressional panel began accepting bribes from some of the largest construction firms in the country 18 years ago Tuesday.

According to federal prosecutors, the scheme involved the payment of at least $ 800 million in bribes and other funds by major engineering and construction companies in exchange for inflated contracts with Petrobras. Prosecutors have said that some of that money was transferred to the ruling Workers Party and other major political organizations to political campaigns.

WATCH STATE DEPARTMENT SPOKESWOMAN SQUIRM WHEN ASKED ABOUT U.S. POLICY AGAINST SUPPORTING COUPS

In case you weren’t aware, Venezuelan authorities recently accused the U.S. of attempts to overthrow its government. In a press conference, U.S. State Department spokeswoman, Jen Psaki, vehemently denied such claims and then went ahead and spouted talking points so ridiculous, only a complete ignoramus could believe them. She said:

As a matter of long-standing policy, the United States does not support political transitions by non-constitutional means.
Interesting, because it seems to me that the primary role of U.S. foreign policy throughout my lifetime has been specifically to initiate political transitions by non-constitutional means.

The line was simply too much to bear for some members of the press. One guy in particular, incredulously asked her to elaborate on her definition of “long-standing” in light of the historical reality that the U.S. government has been constantly involving itself in coups all over the world, particularly in Latin America.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government encourages and funds coups and putsches, as it did in Ukraine; therefore, no US government spokesperson has any right to state, with a relatively straight face, that " As a matter of long-standing policy, the United States does not support political transitions by non-constitutional means." because she is lying through her teeth.

Ms. Psaki's statements are yet another unsettling demonstration of the reality that the words "truth" and "The US Government" can never, ever be used in the same sentence anymore.

Ferguson Attacker Police Said The Shots Were Directed At Another Person

Jeffrey Williams accepted 21 shot from a car but said he wanted was to hurt the police.
The authorities made ??an arrest in connection with the shooting of two policemen in Ferguson. This is a man of 20, who faces charges for injuring two policemen during a protest on Thursday night.

The prosecutor Robert McCulloch said in a press conference that the detainee is Jeffrey Williams, who was charged with two counts of first-degree assault, a charge for firing a gun from a vehicle and armed criminal action.

Jon Voight: Obama ‘Does Not Love Israel’

The Karate Dog star Jon Voight released a video message Sunday, to whatever the demographic for that might be, warning that Obama is an enemy of Israel, and that those seeking a deal with Iran over its nuclear program were, sigh, like Neville Chamberlain.

“I want to see Israel survive and not be overtaken by the madmen of this world,” Voight said. “President Obama does not love Israel. His whole agenda is to control Israel. And this way he can be friends with all of Israel’s enemies…America has not been the same since his presidency.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Reader comment: US president's job is not love another country, his job is to serve the interests of the United States at it's best. Love stories are left to Hollywood.
Voigh seems to support Bibi Netanyahu by attacking his opponents, bringing the silly argument that Iran today is the old Nazi Germany .
Voigh is cautioning of another Chamberlain deal with the Nazi, a typical Bibi's propaganda headline sell.

The Washington Post Will Kill Us All

"War with Iran is probably our best option." This is an actual headline from the Washington Post.

Yes it's an op-ed, but don't fantasize that it's part of some sort of balanced wide-ranging array of varied opinions. The Washington Post wouldn't print a column advocating peace to save its life -- as such an act just might help to do. And you can imagine the response if the headline had been: "Racism is probably our best option," or "Rape is probably our best option," or "Child abuse is probably our best option." Nobody would object: "But they've probably had lots of columns opposing child abuse. Surely they can have one in favor, or do you want to shut down debate?" No, some things are rightly considered beyond the range of acceptability. War, in Washington, is not one of them.

DOT&E Report: The F-35 Is Not Ready for IOC and Won't Be Any Time Soon

Inside-the-Beltway wisdom holds that the $1.4 trillion F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) program is too big to cancel and on the road to recovery. But the latest report from the Defense Department’s Director of Operational Test and Evaluation (DOT&E) provides a litany of reasons that conventional wisdom should be considered politically driven propaganda. The press has already reported flawed software that hinders the ability of the plane to employ weapons, communicate information, and detect threats; maintenance problems so severe that the F-35 has an “overdependence” on contractor maintainers and “unacceptable workarounds” (behind paywall) and is only able to fly twice a week; and a high-rate, premature production schedule that ignores whether the program has demonstrated essential combat capabilities or proven it’s safe to fly.

Report: Netanyahu sought to cancel Mossad briefing for U.S. senators on Iran talks

Netanyahu attempted to cancel a January briefing for U.S. senators by Mossad in which the intelligence agency warned U.S. lawmakers that a new Iran sanctions bill in Congress could derail the negotiations over the Islamic Republic's nuclear program, Time Magazine reported in Saturday.

According to the report, which was based on unnamed sources "familiar with the events," Netanyahu stripped the Mossad meeting from the itinerary of a delegation of senators led by the head of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee by Tennessee, Republican Bob Corker. After a protesting Corker threatened to cut his trip short and asked Israel's Ambassador to the U.S. Ron Dermer to intervene, Netanyahu allowed the meeting with Mossad to go forward as planned, Time reported.

In late January, Bloomberg reported that such a warning was indeed issued to the senators, against Netanyahu's stance on the matter.

Cruz: Lift All Contribution Limits on Campaign Cash

Unlimited political cash would give rank-and-file conservative activists greater sway in picking their representatives, including the president, White House hopeful Ted Cruz told New Hampshire voters on Sunday.

Cruz, a first-term senator who represents Texas, said deep-pocketed donors should have the same rights to write giant campaign checks as voters have to put signs in their front yards. Both, Cruz said, were an example of political speech, and he added that "money absolutely can be speech."

"I believe everyone here has a right to speak out on politics as effectively as possible," Cruz told a voter who asked him about the role of the super-rich in politics.

Washington Post BEX - War with Iran is probably our best option

The logical flaw in the indictment of a looming “very bad” nuclear deal with Iran that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu delivered before Congress this month was his claim that we could secure a “good deal” by calling Iran’s bluff and imposing tougher sanctions. The Iranian regime that Netanyahu described so vividly — violent, rapacious, devious and redolent with hatred for Israel and the United States — is bound to continue its quest for nuclear weapons by refusing any “good deal” or by cheating.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Okay, Mr. Muravchik, if you really feel that way about it... Here's your rifle. Here's your parachute. We ran out of the desert camo but here's a bright da-glo orange jumpsuit from the CIA's torture centers. Watch your head climbing into that transport aircraft, and we will call Tehran and tell them you are on your way to kick their butts all by yourself.

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

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

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

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

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

You first!

And just to keep you honest, please recall that Iran has not initiated a war of conquest against another nation in over 200 years; a sharp contrast to the US and Israel, which these days cannot seem to go two months without invading, drone-striking, or overthrowing someone else's nation!

False IRS Agents Defraud Taxpayers For $ 15.5 Million

Individuals who posed as agents of the US Internal Revenue Service (IRS, for its acronym in English) harassed more than 366,000 people with aggressive phone calls demanding payments and threatening to jail, as revealed Thursday a federal investigator .
More than 3,000 people were deceived, said Timothy Camus, Deputy Inspector General of tax administration in the Treasury, and false officers managed to collect $ 15.5 million. “The numbers of complaints we have received in this case make it the largest in the history of our agency.”

Camus said that fraud affected taxpayers in all states. A particular victim, unidentified, lost more than $ 500,000.

BEX Alert!!! - "Bolton: Obama deal with Iran ‘fundamentally flawed’"

Former US ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton has attacked US President Barack Obama for planning to sign a “flawed” nuclear agreement with Iran.

Speaking at the South Carolina National Security Action Summit in West Columbia, SC, the potential 2016 Republican presidential candidate said the US president is negotiating “an unprecedented act of surrender” with Iran.

“This deal is fundamentally flawed,” he said on Saturday. “There really is no deal I’d trust Iran with.”

Bolton also defended 47 Republican senators, who sent a warning letter to Iran, claiming Obama’s possible nuclear agreement with Iran is a “mere executive agreement” that could be revoked “with the stroke of a pen and future Congresses could modify the terms of the agreement at any time.”
