CULTURAL REVOLUTION: WALLMART AMAZON AND EBAY TO BAN CONFEDERATE MERCHANDISE

WELL, IT SEEMS THAT A LOT OF UNINFORMED PEOPLE PROPELLED BY MASS MEDIA, ARE JUMPING ON THE BANDWAGON, THAT ONCE AGAIN IS HEADED NOWHERE.

THROUGH OUT HISTORY GOVERNMENTS HAVE USED SIMILAR TRAGEDIES TO BAN HISTORICAL SYMBOLS, IDEAS, REFERENCES, AND EVEN BOOKS. THIS IS A FINE EXAMPLE OF HOW THE MASSES ARE GIVEN FEEL GOOD, DO NOTHING, "SOLUTIONS" TO VERY REAL PROBLEMS.

UNDER US CORPORATE-RUN MEDIA BLACKOUT, PACIFIC 'TRADE' PACT MOVES STEP NEARER AFTER SENATE VOTE

In a win for Obama and a defeat for labor unions skeptical of the trade deal, the Senate voted 60-37 to limit debate on the fast-track measure. That just barely satisfied the 60-vote threshold needed after two senators who supported the bill on its first run through the Senate a month ago - Republican Ted Cruz and Democrat Ben Cardin - changed their votes to "no."

Corporate "Trade" Rules and the End of Sovereignty

On May 8th at Nike’s headquarters, President Obama denounced opponents of the hotly contested Trans-Pacific Partnership as ill informed. “(C)ritics warn that parts of this deal would undermine American regulation….They’re making this stuff up. This is just not true. No trade agreement is going to force us to change our laws.”

The White House recently announced that Obama has approved a plan to send 450 new troops into Iraq to fight ISIS. These “troops” aren’t ground troops, but instead are going in an adviser role to assist the Iraqi military.

Gowdy's Benghazi panel releases newest Clinton-Blumenthal emails

“Once again the Benghazi Committee uncovers information that should already be part of the public record but was not made available to the American people or congressional investigators,” said Gowdy. “These emails should have been part of the public record when Secretary Clinton left office and at a bare minimum included when the State Department released Clinton’s self-selected records on Libya. For that reason, the committee has made the decision to release the latest set of Clinton’s public records unearthed by the committee,” said Gowdy, a former criminal prosecutor.

Senate advances fast-track trade bill for Obama

The Senate on Tuesday voted to advance President Obama’s trade agenda, approving a measure to end debate on fast-track authority.

The 60-37 motion sets up a vote on final passage on Wednesday. If the Senate approves fast-track or trade promotion authority (TPA), it would then be sent to Obama’s desk to become law.

Likely the Same Overextended American Empire From the Next President

Although the 2016 election is a year-and-a-half away, the verdict is already
in on the continuation of post-World War II interventionism as the policy of
choice. After the hysteria in the media induced by ISIS’s beheading of a few
Americans in retaliation for U.S. bombing of the group in the Middle East, American public sentiment, still exhausted by the long counterproductive wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, demanded some action against ISIS – as long as it didn’t involve another protracted war or any US military personnel getting killed.

American Medical Association Supports the Elimination of Parents’ Right to Make Vaccine Choices, and California Takes Another Step Toward Medical Tyranny

In 2012, then California Assemblyman Dr. Richard Pan (D-Sacramento)1 assured Californians that a bill he sponsored (AB2107) to increase child vaccination rates in the state would not remove parental rights to make vaccine choices for their children.

Now a state Senator, he's singing a different tune. This year he worked with attorney Senator Ben Allen (D-Santa Monica) to fast track a bill (SB277) through the state legislature

The bill would make it virtually impossible for California children to attend daycare or get a school education without receiving more than 40 doses of 10 federally recommended vaccines or filing a medical vaccine exemption granted by a medical doctor.

International Criticism Of US Human Rights Record Over Pinkney Case

By Brandon Turbeville

US violations of Constitutional and human rights have long been recognized by countries who have been unfortunate enough to find themselves victims of Western and US imperialism. These countries have, on occasion, also been vocal about them.

European silence has come despite the incessant wars committed overseas, the enormous population of imprisoned people in the US, the elimination of privacy, dictatorship of corporations and banks, and the authoritarian crackdown on American citizens.

Recently, however, a respected member of the Italian judicial community, Ferdinando Imposimato, was moved by the case of Rev. Edward Pinkney of Benton Harbor, Michigan...

Papal Impropriety: The Dark Secrets Of The Vatican Bank

The Vatican Bank has been plagued by corruption and criminality ever since it was established in 1942. Yet this is hardly a surprise, given that no bona fide legal system is currently in place to ensure check and balances for the bank of God.

The scandals surrounding the Vatican’s finances strain credulity. At the heart of the Catholic Church, we find murder, collusion with violent crime, bribery and money laundering.

But the Church has, and will, never admit to any financial wrongdoing. With an image of sanctity to protect, the Catholic Church simply cannot admit to any illegality or immorality. In this respect, there is a parallel with the Holy See’s persistent denials of sexual abuse among the clergy. This pretence of moral purity can be maintained because the tiny Vatican state is not subject to Italian law enforcement.

Pope Francis says "Not Christian if you buy, manufacture or support guns". Then the Vatican and Pope are not a Christians!

People who manufacture weapons or invest in weapons industries are hypocrites if they call themselves Christian, Pope Francis said on Sunday.

Since the Pope even implied "investing" in weapons makes you a non-Christian too.... I would then say this.

I will look forward to the Pope now having everyone of his security guards and Police at the Vatican get rid of their guns. I will look forward to the Vatican not investing anymore money buying guns for their Police and security.

I want to see the Vatican and all world governments get rid of their guns to prove how Christian they are!

So.... before the push comes to take away our guns, due to having them is not "Christian" now, lets see how Christian the Pope is.

MONSANTO PROTECTION ACT PART 2? NEW BILL INTRODUCED SPELLS BAD NEWS FOR GMO ACTIVISTS

A couple of years ago, a bill was introduced (H.R. 933) allowing big biotech corporations, like Monsanto, to override United States federal courts on the issue of planting experimental genetically engineered crops all across the US. This rendered the government powerless when it came to stopping other biotechnology corporations from planting and harvesting. The measure shields sellers of genetically modified seeds from lawsuits, even if the resulting crops cause harm. As a result, the public labelled this bill “The Monsanto Protection Act.”

Whoops! Nobody verified Clinton Foundation a legal charity

Along with filing financial reports filled with errors and misstatements, “Big Four” accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers neglected to verify whether the Clinton Foundation obtained tax-exempt status for its various sub-entities, including its AIDS charity, contends respected Wall Street analyst Charles Ortel.

As WND has reported, Ortel’s six-month investigation indicates the Clintons have diverted tens millions of dollars donated for charitable purposes to the personal enrichment of themselves and their close associates.

He says PWC neglected to exercise due diligence in fulfilling its professional responsibilities in conducting even the most basic inquiries required of an honest audit.

1984 Arrives Thirty Years Late: Say Goodby to Privacy Forever if This Bill Passes

Legislation called “The Student Right to Know Before You Go Act” has been introduced in both houses of Congress. Nice name, no? Don’t you think you should have “the right to know before you go” to a college or university?

What it really means is that the federal government will:

authorize the creation of a federal database of all college students, complete with their personally identifiable information, tracking them through college and into the workforce, including their earnings, Social Security numbers, and more. The ostensible purpose of the bill? To provide better consumer information to parents and students so they can make “smart higher education investments.”

Bankers Think They Have an Ethical Duty to Steal From Taxpayers

Ed Kane, a professor of finance at Boston College, studies the dangerous risk-taking of giant banks. He sees the cultures of Wall Street and regulators coming together to turn taxpayers into victims of theft and great harm. Like extreme drunk drivers before MADD or smokers on airplanes prior to the 1980s ban, megabankers currently get away with endangering others with little fear of repercussions. Kane discusses how changes in corporate law and culture must make it legally and socially unacceptable for bankers to blow their toxic fumes at the rest of us.

“Sentence First, Verdict Afterwards”: The Alice in Wonderland World of Fast-tracked Secret Trade Agreements

While the deals are being negotiated, lawmakers can see their terms only under the strictest secrecy, and they can be subjected to criminal prosecution for revealing those terms. What we know of them comes only through WikiLeaks. The agreements are being treated as if they were a matter of grave national security, yet they are not about troop movements or military strategy. Something else is obviously going on.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I do not consider myself bound by a treaty (or any other obligation) not approved of by all of the people, and by that I do NOT mean that grand asylum for the aged and inform on Capitol Hill, but We The People. If treaties are the highest law of the land they deserve the highest scrutiny and review by the public before passage.

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.

Two faces of Hillary: Harassment reports tripled at Clinton, Kerry State Dept.

While presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton claims the U.S. State Department was successful in achieving its tasks under her direction, it appears that once again the former First Lady and Senator is exaggerating her successes during her tenure as Secretary of State. On the campaign trail, the woman who believes there is still gender inequality and continued bullying of woman in America, is remaining silent about a new report that tells voters a different story about her fighting for women's rights. For example, reported incidents of sexual harassment at the State Department have almost tripled under both Secretary Clinton and current Secretary John Kerry, according to an inspector general's report released in the month of June.

New emails show possible Benghazi deception by Hillary Clinton, Obama admin

Congress released nearly 200 pages of newly uncovered emails involving former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, raising questions Monday about whether the Obama administration and the Democratic presidential candidate herself were truthful when they said they turned over all of her email communications on Benghazi.

Rep. Trey Gowdy, chairman of the select House committee looking into the 2012 terrorist attack in Libya, demanded the State Department say whether it has the emails — a way of testing whether the administration withheld them against the wishes of the committee, or whether Mrs. Clinton never turned them over in the first place, contradicting her public statements.

Mr. Gowdy gave the department a deadline of the end of the day Monday.

Rep. Gohmert: Obama Outed Active Israeli Iranian Spy Mission

United States Congressman Louie Gohmert revealed Thursday that the Obama administration had “outed” an active Israeli spy mission in Iran. Israel, he said, had infiltrated Israeli spies into mainland Iran via cargo boats.

He dropped the bombshell in a speech at EMET’s 9th annual “Rays of Light in the Darkness” gala dinner.

Rep. Gohmert, who is one Israel’s fiercest and truest friends on Capitol Hill, stated: “We are on the brink of disaster.”
