US Federal Reserve allows ruling elite to control monetary policy: Analyst

The US central bank, known as the Federal Reserve System and informally as the Fed, is an “anti-democratic” institution that has enabled a small ruling class to control the country’s financial system, according to an American journalist and radio host in New York.

The “War On Terror” Is The Hoax Foundation Of The Police/Spy State — Paul Craig Roberts

The “war on terror” was a hoax. Americans were deceived by policymakers, who are pursuing a hegemonic agenda. The American people were too trusting and too gullible and, consequently, Americans were easily betrayed by Washington and by the presstitute media.

The consequences of the deceit, gullibility, and betrayal are horrendous for Americans, for millions of peoples in the Middle East, Africa, Ukraine, and for Washington’s European vassals.

The consequences for Americans are an aborted Constitution, a police/spy state and rising resentment and hatred of America around the world.

The consequences for peoples in Somolia, Libya, Afghanistan, Iraq, Yemen, Pakistan, Syria, Palestine, and Ukraine have been massive deaths and dislocations, infrastructure destruction, internal conflicts, birth defects, invasions, bombings, drones. Millions of peoples have been murdered by Washington’s pursuit of hegemony, and millions have been turned into refugees.

Israel in U.S. Presidential Politics and Foreign Policy

Haim Saban will be the Israel Lobby’s enforcer in Hillary’s camp. He will also get to lobby for cabinet posts and State Department staff assignments for the Zio-faithful. Look to Dennis Ross, Aaron David Miller, David Makovsky and the whole tired bunch of Zio-mats (Zio-diplomats) to rear their ugly heads once again, regurgitating the same tired concepts which failed in the past administrations in which they served.

What We Knew: A Recent History of Deception

If democracy is a transparent system of government by the people, in which elected officials represent their constituents, then America is failing the test of democracy in its foreign policy. Because, far from governing on behalf of the people they represent, the people are being deceived by their representatives.

Are We Training Cops to Be Hyper-Aggressive ‘Warriors’?

Race dominated the coverage of the 2014 shooting of John Crawford. Crawford was a young black man gunned down by white cops in a Beaverton Creek, Ohio, Walmart as he talked to his girlfriend on the phone while absentmindedly holding a BB gun he had grabbed from a store shelf. Ohio is an “open-carry” state where it’s perfectly legal to walk around with a loaded AR-15.

S African police clash with striking workers at parliament

South’s Africa’s riot police have fired stun and smoke grenades to disperse scores of striking workers holding a rally at the parliament to demand higher pay.

On Wednesday, a large number of policemen moved in on some 200 striking workers on the steps of parliament, firing stun grenades and ordering them to leave the grounds.

The police also used their shields to drive workers from the steps of the national assembly in the capital city of Cape Town.

Sources say the stand-off continued for several hours.

The angry workers chanted slogans and resisted evacuation from the parliament complex.

"We work here, we can't be removed. The police must go," the protesting workers shouted.

"We are all demanding a living wage, that's why we are here," said one protester who was briefly held by security forces at the site.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Welcome, South African workers, to the world of being allegedly represented in your Parliament, but finding it is the interests of the big mine owners represented instead.

Welcome to the world of being irrelevant, invisible, and forgotten, except at election time, when you are supposed to vote in the same people who have so disenfranchised you for so damned long.

And a small memo to the ANC: when you took control of the government of this country, you made a lot of promises to the South African people, and they believed you.

Unless you start to deliver, your days may well be numbered in South African politics.

Speech by UNRWA Commissioner to the UN regarding desperate situation of Palestinian refugees

The illegal blockade of Gaza remains in place subjecting Palestinians to collective punishment and denying all but a few the opportunity to lead normal lives, including by interacting with the outside world. Reflecting this, 893,000 Palestine refugees are food dependent, 11 times the number 15 years ago.

Lost Shelley poem execrating 'rank corruption' of ruling class made public

An incendiary lost poem by Percy Bysshe Shelley, in which the young poet attacks the “cold advisers of yet colder kings” who “coolly sharpen misery’s sharpest fang … regardless of the poor man’s pang”, was made public for the first time in more than 200 years on Tuesday.

The Enemy Within

What is the biggest threat to the national security of the United States?

There are several nominees for the position. In the post-9/11 world, it used to be incontestable that the prize goes to al-Qaeda. No more. That the former head of the CIA, David Petraeus, could openly call for an alliance with the heirs of Osama bin Laden is proof positive, in my view, that the baton has been passed to other entrants.

Jack Yantis' Daughter Video Statement: "My Dad Was Brutally Gunned Down & Murdered By The Deputies, Left For Dead Like Commom Roadkilll"

Sarah Yantis, the daughter of Idaho rancher Jack Yantis, stood with her husband and children on the spot where her father was, as she put it, "brutally gunned down and murdered by the Adams County deputies." She continued, "Though it has been washed twice, and it rained for a night and a day, his blood still remains here on the road. I believe this is where his blood is going to stay until he receives justice for the tragic and needless murder. My father did not receive any care, including medical care, prior to my arrival. And he was shot and left for dead like common roadkill. At the same time, the bull was left to suffer and bleed out inhumanely. When asked to put it down, they would not do it. While my father's blood stains this pavement, the officers that murdered him are on paid leave. What has America come to? It's no longer the land of the free and the home of the brave."

In 1996, California was the first state to legalize the use of Cannabis for medicinal purposes. Since then, the past decade has been ripe with research into the potential medicinal benefits of Cannabis. During this time we have learned that Cannabis can potentially treat such an enormous list of illnesses that the justification for its status as a schedule 1 illegal drug is being called into question.

THE SAD TRUTH ABOUT 'VETERANS DAY'

Most Americans know November 11 as 'Veterans Day' -- the day we honor the poor chumps who have "died for our freedom" (barf), as well as the living ones who knew not and know not of dark powers that misuse the Department of Offense. But what few people know is that the date originated as, and still coincides with, 'Armistice Day'. The date is commemorated every year on the 11th of November to mark the armistice signed between the Allies of World War I and Germany in a railway carriage at Compiègne, France.

POLITICAL BILLBOARDS NOW SCANNING YOUR FACE TO ANALYZE YOUR REACTION – SERIOUSLY

2016 presidential candidates have a new option in their quest to sway voters. “Neuropolitics” is the attempt to read your mind by scanning facial expressions and feeding them into an algorithm. Biofeedback—including heart rate, eye movements, and skin conditions—can also be captured and used for political purposes and, perhaps one day, for government purposes. The New York Times describes a recent example in Mexico City, where a Congressional candidate hired a company to deploy a digital billboard with a hidden camera. The billboard advertised for the candidate, but also scanned faces so the campaign could analyze facial expressions and tweak their message.

Forty-seven million Americans live in poverty right now

The middle class in America has been disappearing because of the rapid increase in the cost of living in the United States.

Indeed, the cost of living in the United States (food, rent, medical insurance and so on) has been growing rapidly. On the federal level, the poverty threshold for a family of five makes up $28,410, although 51% of all American workers make less than $ 30,000 a year at the moment.

Fox moderator Maria Bartiromo was booed after citing Hillary Clinton's 'impressive résumé'

Fox Business Network moderator Maria Bartiromo was briefly booed by a Republican-friendly debate crowd Tuesday night when she brought up former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's résumé.

Near the end of the debate, Bartiromo was interrupted when she asked the candidates to compare their records against Clinton. Bartiromo said Clinton has an "impressive résumé," provoking the audience reaction.

The moderator pointed out that Clinton has spent "more time in government than almost all of you on stage tonight."

Slaves must have a master. Yes. The master is the corporate glob that controls us, speaks for us, that provides us with our only voice, the corporate media, that uses us up for its profit, that engorges itself while masses of our people remain jobless and hungry and that uses our resources and children to extend its aggression across the world for more profit.

Republican Candidates Rip the Fed ... Again

Ordinarily we would post something on a different topic given that our first article examined central banking. However, this report (see above) on the Republic debate is important to note, as it provides further evidence of opposition to a central Fed meme – namely that the Fed is neither competent nor providing a necessary service.

Almost a half-decade ago, we announced the Federal Reserve as a credible monetary facility was in significant difficulty and was losing support of the citizenry it was supposed to serve. Since then we've seen nothing to change that conclusion. The Fed as an institution is certainly in trouble and continues to lose credibility.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The FED is a system of debt enslavement. It deserves to be ripped. In fact it deserves a good ass-whupping!

Attorney Gerry Spence of 'Ruby Ridge' Fame To Assist Family of Jack Yantis (Idaho Rancher Slaughtered By Sheriffs)

Jack Yantis was having a peaceful dinner with his family on the evening of Sunday, November 1, 2015 when a local law enforcement dispatcher called him to tell him that one of his bulls had been hit by a car and needed to be put down.

Yantis family attorney Matthew K. Taylor has announced that Spence will help on the case "for justice" and that "due to the increased attention of the #yantisshooting we will be using twitter to support the family."

Israel says EU is 'emboldening its enemies' with labelling plans

Binyamin Netanyahu has written a strongly worded letter to the European parliament president, Martin Schulz, voicing concerns over a proposed EU move to label products from illegal Israeli settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories.

Netanyahu said the plan was “discriminatory” and “emboldening” those who seek to “eliminate Israel”. According to widespread reports in Israel, an announcement on labelling of settlement products is expected within days, perhaps as early as Wednesday, although late on Tuesday some sources in Brussels were suggesting a statement might be delayed.

Full-House at Idaho Town Meeting on Jack Yantis Killing: "How can it be more obvious this is a crime!" Daughter of Rancher Says

There was a town hall meeting on the killing of local rancher Jack Yantis in Council, Idaho last night. The event was held at a local church, where the 'pastor' announced that recording was prohibited. However, many local reporters tweeted live as the meeting commenced. Following are a collection of all the tweets. Sherrif Ryan Zollman, whose deputies were trained by DHS, claims he's received death threats, will not step down, and will not name officers. When asked if the deputies had an AR-15, Zollman replied "It is true." Overall, people are very skeptical of the sheriff's office and the investigation into this shooting. "The government is holding all the cards and we have no knowledge," one citizen at the meeting said. Several folks raised questions about why body cams aren't on all the time of the shooting.

Here’s What Really Happened to the Idaho Rancher Who Was Killed By Police

When the death of Idaho rancher Jack Yantis was first reported, the details surrounding his case were sparse. According to the police, one of his bulls had escaped his property before getting hit by a station wagon on Highway 95. The irate bull was charging at emergency responders and police officers, who were trying to help the injured passengers that were still in the car. So the police decided to contact Yantis, and asked him to take care of his animal.

Yantis showed up to the scene with his rifle as Adams County deputies were preparing to put the bull down. An altercation ensued between Yantis and two deputies, who eventually shot him. He was pronounced dead at the scene, and his wife suffered a near fatal heart attack after hearing the news.

For some people, that might actually be considered a shocking claim.
