HSBC Bank: Secret Origins To Laundering The World's Drug Money

For years, when banks have been caught laundering drug money, they have claimed that they did not know, that they were but victims of sneaky drug dealers and a few corrupt employees. Nothing could be further from the truth. The truth is that a considerable portion of the global banking system is explicitly dedicated to handling the enormous volume of cash produced daily by dope traffickers.

A US congressman wants to take hard action against government staff viewing grumble flicks at work.

House Rep Mark Meadows (R-NC) said that his proposed Eliminating Pornography for Agencies Act would task the White House's Office of Management and Budget to "issue guidelines that prohibit the access of a pornographic or other explicit web site from a Federal computer."

Witnesses against death row grandmother admit they lied following threats from prosecutors

Key witnesses against a British grandmother on death row in Texas have said that prosecutors in her 2002 trial threatened or ‘blackmailed’ them into testifying against her.

Among them is the only person who claimed to have seen Linda Carty (56) carry out the murder of Joanna Rodriguez, who has now admitted that Texan District Attorneys (DAs) “threatened me and intimidated me” into identifying Ms Carty as the culprit. Christopher Robinson, who was the key to the prosecution case, admits that he never saw Ms Carty kill anyone and his testimony to this extent at trial was a lie.

Mr Robinson has signed an affidavit, filed in September 2014, in which he testifies that prosecutors “told me I had to testify at Linda’s trial to avoid the death penalty, and they made it clear what it was I had to say.” Mr Robinson adds that they “[told] me I would get the death penalty myself if Linda Carty did not get the death penalty.”

Top anti-GMO scientists band together in film exposing threats and secrecy


"Árpád Pusztai and Ignacio Chapela have two things in common. They are distinguished scientists, and their careers lie in ruins. Both chose to investigate the phenomenon of genetic engineering. Both made important discoveries. Both are now suffering the fate of those who criticise the powerful vested interests that dominate big business and scientific research. Statements made by scientists themselves suggest that 95% of those researching in the area of genetic engineering are funded by industry. Only 5% are independent. This situation presents a major threat to the freedom of science – and to our democracy. Can we, the public, still trust our scientists?"

Astonishing List of 71 Top Bankers Dead and No Natural Causes!

I've recently stumbled across a list of top bankers that have been killed in cold blood, died in "accidents" or have allegedly committed suicide. In some of the cases, their deaths are so suspicious that the 'suicide' verdict is simply ridiculous, as you will see.

While searching for news reports documenting their deaths, I've managed to find a lot more cases of high ranking bankers that have been found dead in suspect circumstances. I've added the cases to the list and included the appropriate reference links.

Feb 15 08:58

FLASHBACK - Does The Trail Of Dead Bankers Lead Somewhere?

What are we to make of this sudden rash of banker suicides? Does this trail of dead bankers lead somewhere? Or could it be just a coincidence that so many bankers have died in such close proximity? I will be perfectly honest and admit that I do not know what is going on. But there are some common themes that seem to link at least some of these deaths together. First of all, most of these men were in good health and in their prime working years.

Truth first casualty of climate wars

Why is it that when politicians make basic science mistakes in support of the hypothesis of dangerous human-caused global warming, no government agency or university representative corrects them?

It is not as if such errors are rare; they happen all the time.

For example, climate modellers correctly label their speculations of future temperatures as “projections”, meaning that they have no validated forecast skill.

Yet lawmakers treat the models as providing forecasts or predictions.

Because this misusage is never corrected, our leaders get away with basing expensive public policy on misinformation.

In Israel, Huckabee supports Netanyahu visit, opposes Iran talks

On a visit to Israel, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee voiced support for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s impending address to Congress.

Huckabee, a likely 2016 Reublican candidate for president, also dismissed the prospects of ongoing American negotiations with Iran over its nuclear program. To prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon, he said, America should place heavy sanctions on Iran while maintaining the threat of a military strike.

Republicans seize on HSBC scandal to hold up Loretta Lynch's confirmation

Senate Republicans are seizing on the global tax scandal engulfing HSBC to delay the confirmation of Loretta Lynch, Barack Obama’s nominee for attorney general, the Guardian can reveal.

The Republican chairman of the Senate judiciary committee, Chuck Grassley, was on Friday preparing a fresh tranche of questions for Lynch about the huge cache of leaked data showing how HSBC’s subsidiary helped conceal billions of dollars from domestic tax authorities.
HSBC could yet be prosecuted over tax-dodging scheme, warns Loretta Lynch
Obama’s nominee for attorney general negotiated a deal with HSBC two years ago that saw it avoid criminal charges but Lynch says DoJ still has powers to act.

Grassley and another Republican senator are planning to investigate whether Lynch could have done more to stand up to the world’s second largest bank.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The questions Republicans are bringing up are fully legitimate, and whoever vetted Loretta Lynch should have known that these issues would come up during the process of confirmation.

How deeply Ms. Lynch is, herself, mired in this controversy, is not something which should have been discovered so late in the process, and Democrats have only themselves to blame for not taking a closer look at this earlier.

Americans want someone in this very high position who will justly administer the laws, not bend them for the sake of the very well positioned.

But of course, Eric Holder himself has played fast and loose with the law, in terms of APgate surveillance; IRSgate; his persecution of James Rosen; the Marc Rich Pardon; Fast and Furious; and his position against 2nd Amendment Rights.

It is obvious, with the "baggage" Ms. Lynch carries, that this White House wants someone who "followed in Holder's footsteps" in terms of potential comfort with corruption on the biggest possible scale, and the outcomes of Ms. Lynch's tenure as the Attorney General, should she get confirmed, would most probably be more of the same.

British politicians mull censorship of anti-Israel comments

Following the Charlie Hebdo attack and related killings, we saw continental European law enforcement agencies confirming that “freedom of speech” is a white liberal privilege, not a universal right.

With Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu brazenly claiming all Jewish victims as his own and cashing in on the attacks for blatant propaganda purposes, the French political elite signalled that the tragic events may be used as an excuse to crack down on criticism of Israel.

Now, it seems, British parliamentarians could go down the same road by considering bans on critical discourse while basing their criteria on extremely shaky definitions.

War for Some, Profits for Poroshenko

Over the course of the last year, while Ukraine bled and grew poor, Poroshenko’s firm Roshen increased its profits by a factor of 9!

This is complete nonsense. An economic miracle! It is hard to believe, but the confectionary firm Roshen which belongs to President Poroshenko increased its profits by a factor of 9, to 34.8 million hryvnya.

At the same time Ukraine’s economy is in pre-default state. The country’s gold and hard currency reserves had shrunk to an absolute minimum, from 20 billion to 7 billion dollars. Hryvnya devalued sharply, from 8 to 20 hryvnya to a dollar (up to 30 on the inter-bank exchange). Salaries and pensions have been frozen, utility payments went way up. Everything is collapsing. Only the president’s personal business is flourishing.

Don’t you think it’s strange?

John Kitzhaber to resign as Oregon governor: report

A person with direct knowledge of the plan says Democratic Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber plans to resign amid allegations his fiancee used her relationship with him to enrich herself.

The announcement is a stunning fall from grace for the state’s longest-serving chief executive. The person spoke only on condition of anonymity because the person wasn’t authorized to talk about the governor’s plan.

The decision on Friday capped a wild week in which Kitzhaber seemed poised to step down, then changed his mind, but ultimately bowed to calls from legislative leaders that he quit the state’s top job.

HSBC leaks: Lord Fink admits he took 'vanilla' steps to reduce tax bill – and claims 'everyone' is involved in tax avoidance

We should all rage at how the HMRC Gestapo pick on the little people while doing cosy deals with the super rich

As someone who was subjected last year to an HMRC inspection of my tax affairs, I could not be more outraged at the revelations that some of the wealthiest people in Britain have been engaging in tax avoidance on a vast scale by exploiting the secrecy offered by HSBC’s Swiss private bank.

Labour, on whose watch most of this scandal occurred, have demanded to know whether David Cameron interrogated Stephen Green — the former HSBC chairman, who was in charge of the Swiss operation — when he granted him a peerage and a job as Trade Minister.

Meanwhile, Ed Miliband — who as the Mail reports today has, with his brother, pursued lucrative tax avoidance strategies — is trying to start a new class war by throwing rocks at rich Tory donors such as philanthropist Lord Fink, whose name appears on the list of clients in Switzerland.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a permanent class wear, waged by the upper classes on everyone else.

David Cameron's IN-LAWS have links with a string of tax havens

David Cameron has come under more pressure over his wife Samantha’s family affairs after it emerged they have links to tax havens across the globe.

The PM’s mother-in-law Lady Astor’s luxury furniture store Oka Direct is more than 50% owned by anonymous ­shareholders through accounts held in Guernsey, we can reveal.

She has a 22% stake in the firm she founded in 1999 and which has ­benefited from the offshore investment.

And Samantha’s step-dad Viscount Astor is linked to a firm in a Caribbean tax haven which owned his family’s 19,000 acre Talbert Estate in Scotland.

The revelations come amid the furore sparked by further criticism of Mr Cameron’s wife’s job with plush stationery firm Smythson, whose owners are based in Luxembourg.

And the PM was branded a ­“hypocrite” after boasting about clamping down on tax dodgers, insisting he wants all British firms to be ­“headquartered” in the UK.

Clinton in Tough Spot Over Attending Bibi’s Speech

On Tuesday, Feb. 11, the Emergency Committee for Israel released a letter to Hillary Clinton, urging her to attend the Israeli Prime Minister’s speech to Congress, scheduled for March 3. She may have to, given a new poll and pro-Israel competition from an unlikely source.

ECI, chaired by the Weekly Standard’s William Kristol, is a staunchly pro-Israel educational organization, which sees its goal as educating the public about “the serious challenges to Israel’s security and about what elected officials in this country are doing and should do in order to meet those challenges.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why is the United States (and more to the point the United States Taxpayer) in any way responsible for Israel's security? A better solution would be for Israel to stop running their country like a Bronze age kingdom and learned how to get alone with their neighbors in the 21st Century!

Jewish GOPers: Include Jews as threatened group in IS bill

Jewish Republicans want Jews added to a military force authorization bill as one of the minorities threatened by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria.

Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY), the sole Jewish Republican in Congress, told CNN on Thursday that in the wake of the apparent IS affiliation of a terrorist who last month attacked a kosher supermarket in Paris and killed four Jews — whom the terrorist said he targeted because they were Jewish — Jews should be added to the authorization for use of military force under consideration.

Backing his call was the Republican Jewish Coalition.

Exclusive: Priebus to Wasserman Schultz – Is Hillary Missing Due to Suspension Over Stolen Valor Lie?

In a letter to Democrat National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, obtained exclusively by Breitbart News, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus asks if Hillary Clinton’s mysterious disappearance from the national stage is due to her being “suspended” by the DNC for repeatedly lying about coming under sniper fire in Bosnia.

“After hearing about Brian Williams’s recent suspension at NBC for telling false stories about coming under fire in war zones,” Priebus writes. “We thought perhaps the DNC had also ‘suspended’ Mrs. Clinton for her similar fabrications.”

The move to ban her came after a petition was submitted to the Central Election Committee by fascist candidate Baruch Marzel. By mid afternoon, he too was barred from running. Both sides of the House, the Right and the ‘Left’ expressed support for the decisions, both fearing that votes would be ‘stolen’ by Zoabi’s candidacy as well as that of Marzel’s.

When it's 3 a.m. and you're ready to eat a sandwich made of light bulbs for an ounce of heroin, you'll find yourself turning your D.A.R.E. T-shirt inside-out pretty quick. But it is shocking how many outspoken people end up being exposed as hypocrites.

ALL WARS ARE BANKERS' WARS!

"Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin. The Bankers own the Earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create deposits, and with the flick of a pen they will create enough deposits to buy it back again. However, take it away from them, and all the fortunes like mine will disappear, and they ought to disappear, for this world would be a happier and better world to live in. But if you wish to remain slaves of the Bankers and pay for the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create deposits." -- Sir Josiah Stamp, President of the Bank of England in the 1920s, the second richest man in Britain

I know many people have a great deal of difficulty comprehending just how many wars are started for no other purpose than to force private central banks onto nations, so let me share a few examples, so that you understand why the US Government is mired in so many wars against so many foreign nations. There is ample precedent for this.

The Breaking HSBC Scandal Reveals UK Govt Is Chief Henchman Of The Mafia Banking System

An international collaboration of media outlets have leaked HSBC files which prove the Bank has actively sought to undermine domestic tax laws by hiding more than $100bn in Swiss bank accounts – but what is truly remarkable, it the complicity of the UK government in helping the 1% avoid paying their dues.

Sicilian mafia families have a position in their criminal organisation called the ‘consigliere’. A consigliere is an adviser or counselor to the boss, with the additional responsibility of representing the boss in important meetings both within the boss’s crime family and with other crime families. The consigliere is a close, trusted friend and confidant.

The relationship between the UK government, the HMRC and the banking sector appears to be one of consigliere – with the former providing advice and representation services for the latter, against the interests of the public.

Cameron 'up to his neck' in HSBC tax row after revelations a string of Tory donors held Swiss bank accounts

David Cameron was accused of being 'up to his neck' in the Swiss bank account row today, after revelations that a string of Tory donors hoarded money in the country.

Former Conservative Party Treasurer Stanley Fink and German-born car manufacturing heir Georg von Opel, who has donated six-figure sums to the Tories, are among a host of individuals who legally held accounts in Switzerland with HSBC's private bank, according to a leaked tax disc.

In a fiery Commons debate, the Prime Minister insisted 'no-one had done more' than the current government to crack down on tax avoidance.

Social workers allowed convicted paedophile unrestricted access to five-year-old girl and failed to tell her mother about his past

A social services department allowed a convicted paedophile unrestricted access to a five-year-old girl and failed to tell her mother about his past.

The troubled social services department at Norfolk County Council has been accused of placing the child at risk as they allegedly knew the man was allowed to care for the girl alone but did not warn her mother about his history.

The case came to light after MPs and foster carers called for an investigation into claims the department has wrongly removed dozens of children from their carers.

‘Politicians can't be trusted to clean up HSBC’: Govt revenue chiefs grilled over tax evasion scandal

Top UK tax officials were probed by MPs on Wednesday over the recent tax evasion scandal that has engulfed British banking giant HSBC. Labour MP Austin Mitchel said Britain’s tax avoidance industry has eclipsed its tax collection industry.

Amid global controversy over HSBC's alleged involvement in industrial scale tax evasion, Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) was questioned by Britain’s Public Accounts Committee (PAC).

On Sunday, it emerged HSBC's Swiss private banking arm had aided royalty, criminals, terrorists, and drug dealers in dodging taxes.

A colossal cache of files leaked to the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) shed light on the banking giant's clandestine practices between 2005 and 2007. During this period, HSBC's Swiss private banking arm controlled roughly $100 billion in assets.

Files disclosing the bank’s suspect actions were leaked to HMRC in 2010.

Citing internal documents and people familiar with the matter, the report says that from at least 2011 until last year, BofA used funds from that subsidiary to finance transactions by its European investment-banking business — a practice frowned upon by federal regulators.

British Police launched a dawn raid, not on HSBC, but families accused of benefit fraud. Benefit fraud isn’t a great thing obviously, but let’s put it into perspective.

Restore the Bank of Canada

The Bank of Canada, unlike the Federal Reserve in the U.S., is wholly owned by the people of Canada. It was nationalized in 1938 and was used very successfully to fund infrastructure, social programs, education, etc, for the benefit of all Canadians. It was used to bring us out of the depression, funded WWII, to build highways such as the McDonald-Cartier freeway, public transportation systems, subway lines, airports, the St. Lawrence Seaway, our universal healthcare system and our Canada Pension Plan.

Unfortunately, since Canada adopted economist Milton Friedman’s theory of monetarism in 1974 this has not been the case and one can track the progression of the dismantling of Canada since then.

President Obama didn’t take kindly to Staples executives who slashed worker hours due to what they said was the need to curtail expense related to Obamacare, saying such corporations can “well afford” to pay.

No, we CAN'T! American businesses were already hovering at the edge of collapse before ACA and the higher costs will and are driving many of them over that edge into bankruptcy and closure. Add the the fact that the Obamacare-compliant health insurance isn't worth the paper it is on which means Americans who have been forced to buy those policies are being driven into bankruptcy by the unpaid portions of their medical bills!

JON STEWART ~~ ONE LAST DISS AGAINST NETANYAHU BEFORE THEY BOTH BECOME HISTORY

The controversy over Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s invitation to speak to Congress, which Democrats see as a Republican ploy to undermine President Obama’s negotiations with Iran, is tragicomic. But the mess of behind the scenes bickering and childish insults are, improbably, threatening both US-Israeli relations and the very delicate international effort to resolve the Iranian nuclear crisis.

So naturally, Jon Stewart is the perfect person to take on this ridiculous mess, which he did during Thursday night’s episode of The Daily Show.

“One of our closest foreign allies is taking sides with Republicans against a Democratic president, which creates a major conundrum for Democrats,” Stewart said. “I’m reminded of a similar situation, faced by an Israeli king renowned for his wisdom.”

A fresh scandal has erupted over the murder of Cardiff prostitute Lynette White 26 years ago with our revelation today that 227 boxes of missing legal documents relating to a police corruption case which sensationally collapsed have been discovered in a warehouse.

Documents seen by WalesOnline indicate that a retired police officer tipped off the chief inspector of Her Majesty’s Crown Prosecution Inspectorate that the boxes were being stored in a police warehouse at RAF St Athan in the Vale of Glamorgan – and that two of the documents should have been disclosed during the trial of eight former detectives and two civilians accused of conspiring to get innocent men convicted of Ms White’s murder.

Fed mobilizes against Rand Paul's audit legislation

The Federal Reserve is mobilizing against Sen. Rand Paul's increasingly popular effort to audit the central bank.

“This is about interfering with the making of monetary policy. I respect the gentleman from Kentucky, but he’s wrong,” said Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas President Richard Fisher on Fox Business Monday evening.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Under the Constitution, only the government has the authority to make monetary policy, not a privately-owned central bank. And because the Constitution does not authorize the delegation of transfer of such authority, it would require a Constitutional amendment to do so. The federal Reserve is hence unconstitutional and the deb owed by the American people to the private central bankers is null and void.

Israelis Cry Foul on U.S. Cash Influencing Their Election

In a Tel Aviv storefront, 84-year-old volunteer Zelda Harris is working the phones for the V15 group trying to unseat Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. U.S. billionaire S. Daniel Abraham, founder of Slim-Fast Foods Co., is helping to fund the effort.

Across the country, men and women in red jumpsuits hand out free copies of Israel Hayom, a pro-Netanyahu daily. The paper is financed by American gambling tycoon Sheldon Adelson.

Critics are concerned that cash from overseas donors will affect next month’s vote. “I would like to see foreign money out of Israeli politics,” said Hebrew University of Jerusalem political science Professor Menachem Hofnung. “Legally, it would be very difficult to do” because “you can’t stop people from funding certain ideas,” he said.

The law prohibits foreigners and Israelis living overseas from donating directly to candidates’ campaigns in the general election.

I'm sure that Boehner and his colleagues in the monkeyhouse leadership thought inviting Benjamin Netanyahu to come over here and submarine the president and the administration on the negotiations with Iran was a brilliant idea when they thought it up. Once Operation Suckup went into effect, however, almost nothing went right and now, of course, everybody's blaming everybody else.

Forget Brian Williams, it’s Hillary Clinton’s lie that matters

But he’s just a TV personality, another hubris-filled, shallow egotist. NBC doesn’t care what you think, and if they decide he stays, he stays. You don’t have any say in the matter: It’s a corporate issue.

But not at all so for Hillary Rodham Clinton. In March 2008, giving a foreign policy speech on Iraq about her days as first lady and a trip to Tuzla, Bosnia, she delivered an unbelievable tale.

“I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base.”

So, picture that: Chopper lands, sniper bullets pinging and zinging everywhere, she and her comrades sprinting across the tarmac, perhaps zigzagging to throw off the sharpshooter.

Let the finger-pointing begin.

Two weeks into the Bibi-gate (or perhaps Bohener-gate, or simply speech-gate) controversy, with no sign of Democratic anger subsiding, Benjamin Netanyahu and his allies are starting to look for excuses.

The defense Bibi has settled on can be summed up in three words: “It’s Boehner’s fault.”

Whistleblower: AG nominee in $1 billion Obama cover-up

New revelations are emerging that could implicate Loretta Lynch, President Obama’s attorney general nominee, in the world’s largest banking scandal.

As WND reported, Lynch, as the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York, oversaw the investigation in 2012 of drug-related international money laundering allegations against London-based HSBC Holdings LLC.

As a result of HSBC agreeing to a settlement requiring the international bank holding company to pay the U.S. government more than $1.2 billion in fines for money laundering, Lynch’s office agreed in return not to press criminal charges against any bank employee of the U.S.-based HSBC subsidiary.

Banking Giant HSBC Sheltered Murky Cash Linked to Dictators and Arms Dealers

Secret documents reveal that global banking giant HSBC profited from doing business with arms dealers who channeled mortar bombs to child soldiers in Africa, bag men for Third World dictators, traffickers in blood diamonds and other international outlaws.

The leaked files, based on the inner workings of HSBC’s Swiss private banking arm, relate to accounts holding more than $100 billion. They provide a rare glimpse inside the super-secret Swiss banking system — one the public has never seen before.

Young woman at the center of Prince Andrew scandal says the FBI have videos of her having sex with Jeffrey Epstein and 'powerful friends' while she was underage

The woman at the centre of the Prince Andrew 'sex slave' scandal has told a US court that she believes the FBI has videos of her having sex with Jeffrey Epstein and his 'powerful friends' while she was underage.

Virginia Roberts, who alleges that she was loaned out to the Duke of York and other high-profile Epstein associates, also stated that she feared for her life while working as Epstein's 'sex slave'.

It comes a week after Epstein, an American billionaire who has been convicted of soliciting underage prostitution, hit out at 'outlandish attacks' by the 'gossip media' over the case.

Chilcot report will be 'devastating' says No 10 as it emerges THIRTY are in the firing line of heavily critical Iraq Inquiry... and Blair's secret letters to Bush to be revealed in full

Thirty people, including Tony Blair, are set to be heavily criticised by the Chilcot Inquiry in its ‘devastating’ attack on the Iraq War.

Well-placed sources say that ‘approximately 30’ people have been sent letters by chairman Sir John Chilcot warning them that they will be criticised in his report into the 2003 invasion.

They include the former Prime Minister and ex-Foreign Secretary Jack Straw, as well as a host of other Labour politicians, Whitehall mandarins, diplomats and intelligence officials.

The Mail on Sunday understands that Chilcot’s million-word report on the conflict is ‘largely finished’.

Ros-Lehtinen removes pro-Palestinian activists from Congressional hearing on punishing PA for joining ICC

Many Americans who support Palestinians’ human rights were dismayed a few weeks ago when a House Foreign Affairs subcommittee announced it would hold a hearing on cutting off aid to the Palestinian Authority. The panel was announced in response to the PA’s application to join the International Criminal Court—arguably, among Palestinians, the only popular initiative that Mahmoud Abbas has taken in recent memory. The panel was made all the more offensive when subcommittee chairperson Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) revealed that the witness table would be staffed exclusively by neoconservatives—three out of four of whom have written about Palestinian children as constituting a “demographic threat” to the Jewish state. - See more at: http://mondoweiss.net/2015/02/palestinian-congressional-punishing#stha...

Sen. Orrin Hatch to take Biden's seat during Netanyahu address

Biden’s office on Friday said he will be traveling out of the country at the time of Netanyahu's address, which means the ceremonial duties will fall to Hatch, who is the president pro tempore of the Senate, GOP aides said.

The Science Is Settled: Fracking Is SafeBy Jeffrey Folks

Funded by the National Science Foundation and Duke University, a team of scientists at Ohio State and other universities conducted extensive research into the purported link between groundwater pollution and fracking. (The full title of the report, available online, is “Noble Gases Identify the Mechanisms of Fugitive Gas Contamination in Drinking-Water Wells Overlying the Marcellus and Barnett Shales.”) In an examination of 130 wells, the researchers found that, when properly conducted, no groundwater or aquifer pollution resulted from the practice of fracking itself.

Merck, Other Pharma Companies Helped Fund Activist Groups Who Petitioned the EPA to Regulate Nano-Silver as a Pesticide

Last year it was revealed that a handful of the activist agencies behind the petition to the EPA to regulate nano-silver as a pesticide received funding from pharmaceutical giant Merck, which annually has hundreds of billions of dollars in profits from patented antibioics which many believe are less effective, less safe and far more expensive than colloidal nano-silver products.

Further investigation by this reporter discovered that the initial revelations were just the tip of the iceberg when it came Merck and other pharmaceutical companies' funding of the groups who supported the EPA's regulation of nano-silver.

FLASHBACK - How Independent Are Vaccine Defenders?

They're some of the most trusted voices in the defense of vaccine safety: the American Academy of Pediatrics, Every Child By Two, and pediatrician Dr. Paul Offit.

But CBS News has found these three have something more in common - strong financial ties to the industry whose products they promote and defend.

The vaccine industry gives millions to the Academy of Pediatrics for conferences, grants, medical education classes and even helped build their headquarters. The totals are kept secret, but public documents reveal bits and pieces.

A $342,000 payment from Wyeth, maker of the pneumococcal vaccine - which makes $2 billion a year in sales.

A $433,000 contribution from Merck, the same year the academy endorsed Merck's HPV vaccine - which made $1.5 billion a year in sales.

Another top donor: Sanofi Aventis, maker of 17 vaccines and a new five-in-one combo shot just added to the childhood vaccine schedule last month.

Paedophiles in Power – A Conspiracy Of Silence And Cover-up (in the US)

Sexual predator Gary Glitter (Paul Gadd) hit the news today – again. And we know about Rolf Harris. Both men had connections to notorious paedophile Jimmy Saville – who was invited to Christmas dinner by former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher on countless occasions. But it is the upper echelons of the ruling elite in America that paint a chilling portrait of what is really going on.

I wrote a piece on Rupert Mudoch suggesting that his greatest hour awaits him if he came ‘clean’ – and got his organisation to give us the real news – the facts – without fear or favour. But the story (that makes me feel sick) is about paedophilia in Washington. It reveals that Murdoch and others must have been in a cooperative campaign to crush these stories to protect the ruling elite. God has done nothing to save America.

The story (below) was the second biggest scandal of the 1980’s, but was completely obliterated by the Bush White House.

THE PAEDOFILE: TRIBUNE UNEARTHS MILITARY INTELLIGENCE SPOOK WHO SUPPLIED NAMES FOR DICKENS DOSSIER.

In a sensational piece for the latest edition of Tribune, a major blow is dealt to those who dismiss perversion whistle-blower Geoff Dickens as a fantasist. The post, by left-wing journalist Andrew Rosthorn, adds compelling evidence to support the Havers cover-up, while partially agreeing that – as so often happens in this field – Dickens made little distinction between under-age sex and paedophilia. But in getting MI5/MI6 operative Tony Holland (left above, now a wealthy Australian stock market investor) to go on the record as the man who furnished names for the maverick Tory MP’s dossier, Rosthorn has scored something of a coup in the serious investigation of Westminster deviants.

Mind-control media: Brian Williams, fake science, and the reality egg

Objectivity. What more could you want? What could be more objective than science? What could be less open to dispute? Who could be more authoritative than a scientist? What could influence public opinion more thoroughly than a whole group of scientists, an establishment of scientists, backed by the government?

Notice that when a news anchor takes an unimpeachable statement from a scientist, they both sound like scientists. The double whammy.

It impresses the rubes and yokels and even the well-educated viewers.

This is no accident.

It’s a system of persuasion.

JPMorgan profits from the food stamp scam while Americans are fed disease-promoting junk food

When the food stamp program was first created, the idea was to help struggling Americans stay afloat while they sought employment or other means of subsistence. But today, the program is essentially run by the banking cartel, which profits heavily from enrollees who more often than not purchase disease-promoting junk food that eventually lands them into welfare health programs, which in turn support the pharmaceutical cartels.

Poll: Netanyahu should be investigated for nuclear weapons tech smuggling

[ Editor’s Note: Articles are already coming out that Bibi has overplayed his hand, and AIPAC’s, gambling on a show of power by doing an end run on White house executive control of foreign policy.

They have put themselves openly on the firing line and I urge all to take full advantage of this golden opportunity.

Everyone should start planning to put your own Congressmen and Senators under the gun for defending their history of bending over for the AIPAC lobby.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No government can serve two masters, and a government that serves Israel cannot and will not serve the American people. A friend of Israel is no friend of America. I think every member of the US Government who is a 'friend of Israel' ought to be loaded onto a plane and flown there non-stop, one-way, and never allowed back. In these dark times America needs leaders who will put America first, second, and third!

Bibi’s speech to Congress boomerangs

In the past week Dermer, Netanyahu and Boehner have overcooked this dish until it’s ruined. Instead of enlisting Democratic senators to support new sanctions on Iran, the Israeli-American scandal had the opposite result. Netanyahu managed to do the impossible: He helped Obama rehabilitate his relations with his party members in the House and Senate.

The 10 Democratic senators who were considering supporting the sanctions are now toeing the White House’s line. The new legislation was put in the freezer until after the Israeli elections. Nancy Pelosi, minority leader of the House of Representatives, called Netanyahu and suggested reconsidering delivering the speech, and a group of congressmen started petitioning members for a letter calling on Boehner to put off his invitation to Netanyahu until April, when the prime minister may no longer be politically relevant.

MORE lies on Indian gold imports (Bloomberg)

But this is not really good news. Why? To answer that, we need to flash back to the middle of 2013, when the One Bank first launched its economic terrorism at India, in order to attempt to curb Indian gold consumption.

Gold-Squeeze In India Stokes Silver Demand
How India Evaded The One Bank’s Gold-Embargo

At the time the One Bank began blackmailing India's government (via yet more currency-manipulation); India was importing gold at an annualized rate of 2,000 tonnes per year. Even more significantly; those import levels were occurring at what is generally the slowest time of the year for the Indian gold market: late spring/early summer. If India was importing gold at a rate of 2,000 tonnes per year, then when Bloomberg attempts to portray (current) imports of 940 tonnes per year as "good news", we know we're seeing yet another version of the old "fake good news" routine.

FLASHBACK 2006 - The government’s demonic strategy against parents of autistic children

The primary fact to keep in mind is: the government must deny any link between vaccines and autism, because to admit the connection would force it to pay out gigantic sums of money to parents, under its Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP).

VICP was created in 1988, through an agreement between the US government and pharmaceutical companies, to funnel all law suits for damage away from those companies, and into a bureaucratic maze of government madness, where the parents’ chances of compensation are minimal, where the deck is most assuredly stacked against them.

FLASHBACK 2006 - The Autism Epidemic- Updated Articles- Should we just call Hillary Clinton "Thimerosal Hillary"

As Hillary Clinton decides that she will run for US President, perhaps she will reflect on her own vaccine record in the United States. Is it true, as some contend, that her Vaccines for Children program is responsible for poisoning (from high levels of thimerosal) an entire generation of US children? Think of the policies- mandatory vaccines, electronic tracking systems, the use of public funds as leverage to force vaccination- all with vaccines containing hazardous waste levels of thimerosal. Is this a record to be proud of- or to run from?

Friedman Spreads Anti-Semitic Libels About Netanyahu Speech

Though the argument can be viewed as just one more spat promoted by an administration with an axe to grind against Netanyahu, with the talk of Democrats, even Vice President Biden, prepared to boycott the event because they see it an as an effort to aid Republican efforts to discredit President Obama’s foreign policy, the potential for real damage is no longer theoretical. But the most troubling development is not the ongoing arguments about whether the prime minister has committed a blunder. Rather, it is the willingness by some to use it to stoke anti-Israel libels. That’s the upshot of the latest column from the New York Times’s Thomas Friedman who claims Netanyahu’s speech will be seen as an attempt to force the U.S. into a war with Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This article is damage control for Netanyahu by playing that well-worn "anti-Semite" card, but the fact is that Boehner and Netanyahu stumbled badly, putting Israel's control over the US Congress on full public view.

A Conflict of Principles: The Battle Over Affirmative Action at the University of Michigan

"No state . . . shall deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws." So says the Equal Protection Clause of the U.S. Constitution, a document held dear by Carl Cohen, a professor of philosophy and longtime champion of civil liberties who has devoted most of his adult life to the University of Michigan. So when Cohen discovered, after encountering some resistance, how his school, in its admirable wish to increase minority enrollment, was actually practicing a form of racial discrimination—calling it "affirmative action"—he found himself at odds with his longtime allies and colleagues in an effort to defend the equal treatment of the races at his university.

US Measles Hoax: CDC, WHO, Merck Documents Prove VACCINATED Are Spreading Virus

In early 2015, Big Pharma has declared war on vaccine dissent. In case you haven’t noticed over the last two weeks, US media outlets are running a highly coordinated and sensationalized propaganda campaign to hype-up a “national measles outbreak”, while demonizing any American parents that dare to question the efficacy and safety of any mass-produced vaccine products.

The US media’s ‘mandatory vaccination’ promotional campaign was successfully launched nationwide following an “outbreak” incident at Walt Disneyland theme park brand on January 7th. See Disney’s timeline of events here.

Disneyland is a popular and recognizable children’s brand, and this was crucial in propelling successful headlines that boldly declared, “Disneyland Measles Outbreak”. Event the President endorsed the campaign stating, “There is every reason to get vaccinated — there aren’t reasons to not,” Barack Obama told Today on Monday.

Eric Holder’s Justice Department rocked by nepotism charges

The head of a Justice Department law enforcement office used his position to secure a job for his son and other relatives, the agency’s internal watchdog said Wednesday.

The head of the department’s branch of the International Criminal Police Organization, or Interpol, told employees to “earmark a spot” for his son and “provide extra attention to his processing for obvious reasons,” said the department’s inspector general.

It’s not the first example of nepotism at Eric Holder’s Justice Department. A November investigation by the inspector general found that certain offices in the department had a “pervasive culture of nepotism and favoritism.” It’s at least the fifth inspector general report since 2004 to find hiring problems at the agency.

Netanyahu’s office confirmed Thursday, according to the Times, that the Prime Minister had called Democrats and “other friends” in Congress in recent days, and that he “reiterated that the survival of Israel is not a partisan issue.”
