A Brave New War – the WAR ON FAMILIES

David Knight breaks down the tactics being used to create a Brave New World where the family no longer exists. From an Oregon school district threatening parents with arrest of their children & requiring a court hearing to get them back merely for being late to pick them up from school, to California banning parental informed consent for vaccinations & now proposing to ban the words "husband" and "wife", government is at war with the family.

National Endowment for Democracy found "Undesirable" in Russia- Prosecutors

Russia bans US National Endowment for Democracy as "undesirable"

Russia has moved to ban a prominent US organization from operating in the country under the nation's controversial new "undesirables" law. Critics have slammed the ban as an attempt to limit civil society.

Russian prosecutors declared Tuesday that the US National Endowment for Democracy will be the first "undesirable" foreign group banned under a controversial new law designed to limit the influence of overseas organizations perceived as a threat.

"Taking into account the overall aim of the Endowment's work, prosecutors came to the conclusion that it presents a threat to the constitutional order of Russia, its defense capabilities and state security," the prosecutors said in a statement.

Rand Paul: Fraud, Failure, Liar

by Justin Raimondo, July 29, 2015 As the smoke wafted up into the already smoggy Los Angeles air, a group of young libertarians watched as Jayel Aheram burned his “Stand With Rand” t-shirts. He had two of them, a token of his former esteem for the “libertarian-ish” presidential candidate and Senator from Kentucky, whose father had inspired young Jayel to identify as a libertarian and become active in the movement. A former Marine and Iraq war veteran, the now 31-year-old Aheram had phone-banked for Rand, and enthusiastically retweeted the Senator’s pronouncements on Twitter. He had even forked out $35 for those T-shirts – and now they were going up in flames as he and a group of young libertarians sat on the roof of Jayel’s Los Angeles apartment, drinking beer and glumly contemplating what had brought them – all former supporters of Rand Paul’s presidential campaign – to this point. As Charles Davis writes over at MondoWeiss:

FLASHBACK: Eight Steps To Destroy America

Co+op Grocers Urge Senate Rejection of DARK Act

National Co+op Grocers (NCG) today is expressing its disappointment in the U.S. House of Representatives’ Thursday approval of The Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act (H.R. 1599), which has been dubbed the Deny Americans the Right to Know, or “DARK,” Act by consumer advocacy groups. In addition, NCG urges the Senate to reject any forthcoming companion to the House legislation, which aims to block mandatory GMO labeling at the state and national levels.

NCG supports consumers’ right to information, including sufficient product labeling, so that they can make their own informed food choices – whereas The Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act would, if passed by Congress, deny consumers’ right to know what is in their food. NCG strongly opposes the House version of the legislation for the following reasons...

“Game of Thrones”: This Week’s TIME Cover with Bush and Clinton Is Telling You Who Your Dynasty Families Are, America

Check out this week's cover of TIME Magazine.

Establishment propaganda mouthpiece extraordinaire TIME is ‘talking 2016? with a Bush and a Clinton because it has already been decided that either a Bush or a Clinton will be taking over the White House after the next “election” (read: selection).

In case you still didn’t know for sure, you are straight up being told who your unofficial dynasty families are here, America. It’s as simple (and blatant) as that. It’s being thrown in our faces like a bully’s mud pie on an elementary school playground.

Judicial Watch: IRS Produces Recovered Lerner Emails

Judicial Watch released 906 pages of newly recovered Lois Lerner emails from the IRS that are believed to recently have been recovered by the IRS’ internal watchdog – the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA). The IRS released the emails under a court order by U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan. The new documents show that Lois Lerner and other top officials in the Exempt Organizations Unit of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), including soon-to-be Acting IRS Commissioner Steve Miller, closely monitored and approved the controversial handling of tax-exempt applications by Tea Party organizations. The documents also show that at least one group received an inquiry from the IRS in order to buy time and keep the organization from contacting Congress.

Obamacare: Health Insurers Seek Huge Price Increases

President Obama’s supporters are quick to tout his record as one of tremendous success, especially his “reform” of health care, but that is largely because they like him personally – not because Obamacare has been a rousing success.

By any measure the law, which has routinely been upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court as constitutional despite the use of dubious legal justifications, remains largely unpopular among a majority of Americans. In addition to that, almost nothing of what the president and acceding Democrats promised the law would do has come to fruition. Indeed, on a number of fronts, the law has created the exact opposite effects.

“You Can Legally Bribe a Government Official”

When Eric Holder first joined law firm Covington & Burling in 2001, he was coming from a stint as deputy attorney general under Bill Clinton. So it’s no wonder that when Holder went to the Obama administration as attorney general, the folks at Covington kept his seat warm.

And indeed, for many, Holder’s seamless slide from theoretically prosecuting big banks to defending big banks from prosecution is a common-sense phenomenon only the hopelessly naïve would bother to decry. He’s a lawyer, what do you expect? was the substance of many a comment –of what comment there was, because, again, this latest glimpse of the porous tissue between regulator and regulated went down as no news at all for most of the press.

Judge threatens to hold Obama’s lawyers in contempt over Lerner’s IRS emails

A federal judge rebuked the Obama administration’s IRS Wednesday for refusing to divulge documents, including Lois G. Lerner emails, and warned he would hold those who break his orders in contempt.

Judge Emmet G. Sullivan called the administration’s defense “nonsensical” and said the IRS must release documents every Monday to Judicial Watch, a conservative public interest law firm that requested the documents under open-records laws, and then sued after the IRS didn’t comply.

The power to tax selectively is the power to destroy selectively, wielded with impunity by the administration against their perceived enemies, without regard to due process or the Bill of Rights.

As Clinton Dodges on KXL, Sanders Voices 'Vigorous' Opposition

Hillary Clinton says she'll take a firm position for or against the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, but only after it's already been decided by the current administration or after she's elected president in 2016.

Asked about her stance on the controversial project at a town hall-style meeting in New Hampshire on Tuesday, Clinton said that as the former Secretary of State it would be "inappropriate" for her to take a position because the review of the controversial project was initiated under her direction.

Caught on Body Camera: Cincinnati Now Bracing for Riots After Cop Kills Black Man During Routine Traffic Stop

First Ferguson. Then New York City. Then Baltimore. Now, Cincinnati is apparently next.

A man was apparently shot and killed by a cop wearing a body camera that caught the entire incident after a routine traffic stop for a missing front license plate. The victim, 43-year-old Sam Dubose, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Since Jennifer Baker of Revolution News put it so succinctly, we’ll just quote her for the details:

Sam Dubose ended up dead with his face blown off after a routine traffic stop by a University of Cincinnati Police Officer. Officer Ray Tensing was wearing a body camera at the time of the shooting and recorded the incident. Those that have seen the video footage and made comments about it seem deeply disturbed, including the citywide police chief.

How Aristocrats Have Gotten Away with Even Mass-Murder

On 8 July 2015, in a pervasively ignored but historically very important news event (briefly mentioned by the BBC), the only trial ever in which a former head of state was convicted in his own country for genocide — in the long court case of Ronald Reagan’s friend Guatemalan General Rios Montt — finally petered out via a declaration by a Guatemalan court, alleging that Montt’s 10 May 2013 Guatemalan conviction and 80-year prison sentence (never served) for genocide, must now simply be abandoned, because Montt is supposedly “mentally incompetent to stand trial." Though a retrial of his case had been promised, it probably won’t happen. Guatemala’s aristocracy seem to have blocked any and all penalty for their General and former President’s genocide.

EXCLUSIVE: 'Hillary must NEVER become President', says the woman who exposed Bill's affair with Monica. Former Clinton West Wing assistant Linda Tripp says Democratic contender is a liar who treats the public with contempt

It was the scandal that saw Bill Clinton impeached and which threatened to bring down his presidency. For many, it continues to define it to this day.

But according to the woman who outed Monica Lewinsky as the president's mistress, the real story was never about Monica. It was about 'subornation of perjury, obstruction of justice… a true abuse of power.' And it was about Hillary.

Because, according to Linda Tripp, it was Hillary who manipulated and stage managed the story, converting herself from a lackluster First Lady with unimpressive approval ratings to admirable First Victim - the blindsided wife standing by her man.

She made him forgivable. She 'orchestrated the cover up' and she made damn sure that she moved on. Nothing, and no-one, was going to stand in her way.

Newly recovered Lois Lerner email shows IRS tried to cover up tea party targeting

The IRS sent one of its intrusive scrutiny letters to a nonprofit group in order to throw up a smokescreen and prevent the group from complaining to Congress about poor treatment, according to one of Lois G. Lerner’s apparently lost emails, which were recovered by auditors and released by an interest group Tuesday.

Judicial Watch, which sued to force the production of the Lerner emails, said the emails confirm that Ms. Lerner, the central figure in the targeting probe, and her colleagues were aware of the sensitive nature of the cases but appeared to hide details of the massive backlog they were amassing as they held up hundreds of tea party and conservative group applications for nonprofit status.

Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., filed a “motion to vacate the chair” Tuesday evening, saying Boehner “has endeavored to consolidate power and centralize decision-making, bypassing the majority of the 435 Members of Congress and the people they represent.”

Clinton Emails From Time Of Libya's Slide Into Chaos Missing, Report Says

A reported two-month gap in emails from Hillary Clinton's private account during 2012 coincides with a period of escalating violence in Libya and the obtaining of a special exemption by her top aide, Huma Abedin, to work for both the State Department and the Clinton Foundation.

The Daily Beast reported late Tuesday that no emails between Clinton and her State Department staff for the months of May and June 2012 are among the estimated 2,000 messages that have been released from the Democratic presidential frontrunner's account.

Ted Cruz believes Captain Kirk was Republican; William Shatner responds

Cruz claimed in an interview with The New York Times Magazine that, “It is quite likely that Kirk is a Republican and Picard is a Democrat.” Captain Kirk, played by William Shatner, was in the original version of the series, while Captain Jean-Luc Picard, portrayed by Patrick Stewart, appeared in “Star Trek: The Next Generation.”

Cruz goes on to say in the interview that, “Kirk is working class; Picard is an aristocrat. Kirk is a passionate fighter for justice; Picard is a cerebral philosopher.”

The quotes quickly made the social media rounds and prompted Shatner to respond. In a tweet, Shatner claims that “Star Trek” was not political and to put such labels on interstellar characters is “silly.”

CHINA PUSHES TO REWRITE RULES OF GLOBAL INTERNET

As social media helped topple regimes in the Middle East and northern Africa, a senior colonel in the People’s Liberation Army publicly warned that an Internet dominated by the U.S. threatened to overthrow China’s Communist Party. Ye Zheng and a Chinese researcher, writing in the state-run China Youth Daily, said the Internet represented a new form of global control, and the U.S. was a “shadow” present during some of those popular uprisings. Beijing had better pay attention.

Guess Who Else Called For Diplomatic Solutions To Iran's Nukes?

Just yesterday, Mike Huckabee called President Obama a Nazi. Oh, he didn't use the word Nazi. He just said a deal with Iran would march Israelis "to the door of the ovens." Which means, of course, that he called the sitting President of the United States a Nazi, straight up.

Because he needs the eyeballs to make the primary, and he knows there are enough haters out there to maybe nudge him up into that magical top ten. He knows this because he is a beneficiary of the GOP/Koch microtargeting effort.

But in 2008, Mike Huckabee sang a different tune, one that when considered in the context of his current remarks, would have suggested that he was one of those oven-marchers, too.

In January, 2008 Huckabee wrote an op-ed for Foreign Affairs magazine, striking a far different tone than he is today. The following are key excerpts from that article.

REVEALED: Cancer industry profits 'locked in' by nagalase molecule injected into humans via vaccines... spurs tumor growth... explains aggressive vaccine push

As Mike Adams recently reported, "A universal cancer cure would destroy the profitability of the highly lucrative cancer industry and collapse the American Cancer Society, hospitals, oncology clinics and pharmaceutical companies that depend on chemotherapy revenues to stay profitable."

This means that anyone moving closer to developing a cure for cancer would be considered an extreme threat to the medical establishment and likely stopped at any cost.

With that in mind, the mysterious deaths and disappearances of several natural health doctors throughout Florida is as suspicious as it is concerning.

If anyone was close to finding a universal cure for cancer and would ensure the public had access to it, it would likely be natural health doctors, or naturopaths, as they're less likely to prescribe drugs and more likely to try and heal the body naturally using holistic medicine and nontoxic approaches.

A "No-Fly Zone" By Any Other Name - The "ISIL-Free Zone" In Syria

By Brandon Turbeville

As the NATO Article 4 meeting concludes with little or no fanfare and no major decisions made regarding a “no-fly zone” over Syria, many onlookers may take the opportunity to sit back in satisfaction that the meeting was concluded without any announcement of further direct military involvement in Syrian affairs. For many, the lackluster meeting was simply more proof that Turkey and the United States will not attempt a frontal assault on the Middle Eastern country.

Unfortunately, however, the big decision was not made at the NATO Article 4 meeting, it was made bilaterally days before between Turkey and the United States...

Campus Rape Expert Can’t Answer Basic Questions About His Sources

David Lisak’s serial predator theory of campus rape has made him a celebrity. Once a virtually unknown associate professor at the University of Massachusetts-Boston, his work is now cited by White House officials and reporters for major newspapers.

His influence is evident in the recent documentary The Hunting Ground, and the producers continue to promote his work along with their film. In Jon Krakauer’s new book, Missoula, about sexual assault at the University of Montana, Lisak’s name appears more than 100 times.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hillary is trying to revive the 1990s militant feminism, including the over-hyped rape crisis, to get the "Vagina vote" for her 2016 campaign.
