World Renowned Trend Forecaster Gerald Celente: “America Is A Collapsing Third World Country”

The government of the USA obviously sees the writing on the wall. They know the system will soon come unhinged. And that’s why Celente makes it clear that those who want to thrive while everything around them falls apart need to be focusing on physical asset acquisition. And while some investors out there are focusing on how to make money on their next trade, Celente says forget about short-term trading, and focus instead on value and long-term investments.

Britain’s anti-terror law and the global assault on democratic rights

In the year marking 800 years since England’s Magna Carta, which asserted that kings could not simply impose their will without oversight and freemen could not be punished unless they violated the law of the land, Britain’s new Conservative government is preparing a massive assault on civil liberties.

Most Federal Scientists Feel They Can’t Speak Out, Even If Public Health and Safety at Risk, Says New Survey

A major survey of federal government scientists commissioned by the Professional Institute of the Public Service of Canada (PIPSC) has found that 90% feel they are not allowed to speak freely to the media about the work they do and that, faced with a departmental decision that could harm public health, safety or the environment, nearly as many (86%) would face censure or retaliation for doing so.

Canada is catching up to the US!

Monsanto Wants to Move to Switzerland. Why Is Obama Doing It Favors?

The longstanding principal goal of U.S. trade policy is to advance U.S. economic interests.

So, why is the Obama administration fighting so hard to help Monsanto – a company that is openly trying to slash its taxes by moving its headquarters from St. Louis to Switzerland?

Obama Unleashing 'Racial Agitators' On Crime-Filled Cities, $163 Million to Back Them

The Department of Justice announced it will send millions of dollars to various community-activist groups to combat urban crime and reduce tensions between racial minorities and the police.

But critics believe such policies will only fuel further unrest by funding many of the so-called “community organizers” responsible for creating anti-police sentiment in American cities.

CLAIM OF ‘STALKING’ OF PRO-VACCINE LOBBYISTS PROMPTS WARNING FROM DOCTORS’ GROUP

The emotional debate over Senate Bill 277, which would make vaccinations compulsory for California schoolchildren and passed the Senate last week, has taken a personal turn in recent weeks. Lobbyists championing the bill on behalf of the California Medical Association and the California Academy of Family Physicians have attracted the attention of bill opponents, who have begun sharing information on the lobbyists and disseminating photos of their locations on social media.

PENTAGON SHAM: DEFENSE DEPT ALTERED BOOKS IN LONG-AWAITED AUDIT, REPORTS CLAIM

PENTAGON SHAM: DEFENSE DEPT ALTERED BOOKS IN LONG-AWAITED AUDIT, REPORTS CLAIM
The US Defense Department’s watchdog knowingly turned a blind eye to financial irregularities, leading to the Pentagon signing off on an audit. This has led to questions regarding just how transparent the government auditing process actually is. A special investigation by Reuters revealed that a senior member of the Department of Defense’s (DoD) Inspector General team had colluded with an independent auditing company, Grant Thornton LLP, to falsely keep the US Marine Corps books clean. The DoD remained the only federal organization that had not abided with a 1992 law passed by Congress to undergo an audit. This was despite the DoD receiving in excess of $500 billion a year, which is by far the largest appropriation of any department.

GOOGLE FIBER USERS SUSPECTED OF DOWNLOADING ILLEGAL CONTENT MAY FIND AUTOMATIC DEMANDS FOR MONEY

Demands for payment, often settled online, can range from $20 to several hundred dollars.

Google Fiber, the high-speed broadband service, is quickly expanding across the United States. Touting speeds which leave current Internet offerings in the dust -- allowing consumers to enjoy up to 1 GB/ps -- the service has moved from its original pilot grounds in Kansas City and is expected to appear in Charlotte and Raleigh-Durham, NC along with Nashville, TN and Atlanta, GA later this year.

Consumers are clamouring for broadband speeds up to 100 times faster than the national average, but may have a nasty shock if they plan to use the service in order to download content from file-sharing websites and torrent search engines which infringe upon intellectual copyright.

Scott Walker Lets Millionaire Donors Know the Outrageous Sum It'll Take to Buy Him Off

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has put a pricetag on how much it will cost to join his inner circle, where you can meet with the 2016 GOP presidential candidate and have “dedicated staff contact” to ensure that your agenda will heard and noted.

On Monday, while Walker was making the rounds on Capitol Hill in Washington, his super PAC—the latest campaign finance loophole-contorting tactic—was handing out formal printed invitations to join at the $1 million, $500,000 and $250,000 level that described just what political investors would get for their money.

What In The World Is Happening In Macedonia?

By Brandon Turbeville

In May 2015, protests began erupting in Skopje, Macedonia against the Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski and his government. The protests, led by Zoran Zaev, were allegedly in response to the massive spying and surveillance of Macedonian officials and other individuals as well as an alleged cover-up of a killing of a young man by police in 2011. The protests were largely focused on the issue of government corruption, with tens of thousands of people in the streets of Skopje, demanding the Prime Minister’s resignation as well as that of other members of his government.

A major protest occurred on May 5 and several other anti-government protests have taken place since then. While some protests have remained peaceful, there has been widespread violence from other demonstrations. On the May 5 protest alone, violent clashes took place between protesters and police with injuries taking place on both sides...

IT’S OFFICIAL, POLICE LIVES MATTER, MORE: OBAMA SIGNS “BLUE ALERT” BILL FOR COPS WHO MAY BE IN TROUBLE

This week, President Obama signed a bill that will create a national alert system for the capture of anyone who hurts or makes a threat against a police officer. The new bill further solidifies the fact that the lives of police officers are seen as more valuable than that of the average citizen.

The new bill would create a system that would be comparable to the Amber Alerts used to find abducted children, but would likely be taken far more seriously.

Only in America? The False Dichotomy Between Movement Building and Electoral Politics

Most people we might think of as being on the American left don’t generally embrace the idea of “American exceptionalism.” There is one apparent exception to this unexceptional point of view, however, at least in some corners of the American left. That is the notion that in the U.S. – unlike any other country with a reasonably democratic system – electoral politics are somehow only an optional part of a serious political movement. The latest expression of this “only in America” point of view comes in response to Senator Bernie Sanders’s declaration of his intention to run in next year’s Democratic Party presidential primaries.

Kosher Seal of Approval for PM Stephen Harper?

The council is a religious organization, primarily concerned with certifying whether products are kosher and on Thursday's evening it will give the prime minister its King David Award.

"The King David Award is presented to an individual who is a light unto the world," reads a description of the honour on the event's Facebook page. "One whose courage, strength, intelligence and faithfulness are examples and inspirations for us all.

Should have read blight. A blight unto the world

"This year’s honouree has gone over and above the call of duty in every one of those attributes."

Suuure. If we're talkin' blight then yes Stephen Harper has gone over and above the call of duty

Harper's vocal support for Israel has drawn consistent praise from many segments of the Jewish community, who traditionally voted for the Liberals.

Identity politics in action- Too bad for ordinary run of the mill Canadians.

DEA STAFFERS SECRETLY OWNED STRIP CLUB WITH ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT DANCERS: FEDS

Two Manhattan DEA employees secretly owned a low-rent strip club in South Hackensack, NJ, that employed illegal immigrants from Brazil and Russia as dancers, the feds say in a new criminal complaint. The dive, called the Twins Plus Go-Go Lounge, has repeatedly been cited by state regulators for lewdness because the dancers over-exposed themselves — and also took money for sex in the private lap dance rooms, the complaint says.

COPS WHO FLASH BANGED INFANT’S CRIB ARE BLAMING THE BABY

Nearly a year has passed since a Habersham County SWAT team stormed into the Phonesavanh residence, and very nearly killed their 19 month old child. The no-knock raid was prompted by an anonymous tip which suggested there were drugs in the house. As the officers forced their way into the home, they lobbed a flash grenade which wound up landing in the crib where baby “bou-bou” was sleeping. As it erupted, the infant suffered severe burns and had to be taken to the hospital, and placed in a medically induced coma.

U.S. and Israel have worst inequality in the developed world

The U.S. and Israel have the worst inequality in the developed world, according to a report from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.

The OECD found that the gap between rich and poor is at record levels in most of its 34 member countries. But the U.S. and Israel stood out from the pack.

John Kerry Admits Defeat

It is just as well Secretary of State John Kerry’s momentous meetings with Russian leaders last week took place in Sochi, the Black Sea resort where President Putin keeps a holiday home. When you have to acknowledge that two years’ worth of pointless hostility in the bilateral relationship has proven none other than pointless, it is best to do so in a far-away place.

NYPD ADMITS THEY HAVE BEEN ARRESTING TOO MANY PEOPLE, CONSIDERING AMNESTY FOR 1.2 MILLION

The New York Police Department is being forced to acknowledge they have arrested far too many people for victimless crimes. Now, the department admits they will have to do something about it. Police Commissioner Bill Bratton has publicly accepted the fact that “millions” have been convicted of crimes that they should never have been jailed for. The new controversial proposal suggests the City of New York grant amnesty to over 1 million citizens who have open warrants for low-level, clearly victimless offenses.

Law or no law, Canadians better not criticise Israel

Is Canada's Prime Minister Stephen Harper inching towards criminalising criticism of Israel?

Since first elected in 2006, his Conservative government has been pointing in that direction. Tiny gestures to be sure. But, taken together, they trouble many Canadians.

JPMorgan’s Jamie Dimon Deals With His Bank’s Felony Charge – Badly

Against this backdrop of a serial crime spree on the part of employees on multiple continents and coast to coast in the United States, JPMorgan released a statement yesterday regarding the bank pleading guilty to a felony charge for engaging in the rigging of foreign currency trading, calling it “principally attributable to a single trader.” In the statement, Dimon says the bank has a “historically strong culture.”

Dimon is, if nothing else, a master of the grand illusion.

Fantasy: Vaccines Remarkably "Safe and Effective"

For years, critics on the fringes of medicine have pointed to problems with vaccines. It is generally acknowledged that, given to people whose immune systems are compromised, they can be immunosuppressive.

And from time to time, stories have surfaced about vaccines which have been dangerously contaminated by extraneous viruses or bacteria, as a result of the manufacturing process.

We are taught to believe that untoward reactions to vaccines are rare, and that there has never been a question about the overwhelming success of all vaccines at all times, wherever they have been used.

The history of vaccines, though, shows a much more disturbing record than one might think. Here is a series of excerpts from authors on the subject. It is a quite different slant on vaccines.

France launches new UN effort to undermine Palestinian rights

The government of French President François Hollande is renewing its efforts to fatally undermine fundamental Palestinian rights, particularly those of refugees.

France’s Le Figaro has obtained the text of a draft UN Security Council resolution that the Hollande administration plans to introduce sometime before September.

The resolution should be seen as the international counterpart to France’s increasingly fierce crackdown on Palestine solidarity at home under the guise of fighting anti-Semitism.

WORLD TRADE ORGANIZATION OVERRULES U.S. COUNTRY-OF-ORIGIN RULES FOR MEAT PRODUCTS

U.S. government attempts to inform consumers about the origins of the beef and pork they purchase in stores have been undermined by the World Trade Organization (WTO). Siding with officials from Canada and Mexico, the WTO ruled that American regulations that require the meat industry to use country of origin labels (COOL) represent a violation of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). COOLs are intended to tell shoppers in which country the meat they buy was born, raised and slaughtered. In addition to letting consumers know if the meat was produced locally, they gave regulators a way to begin tracing the meat in case of a problem with it.

Illinois House Passes Bill to Stop BDS Campaign Against Israel

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive!

The Citizens United decision granted corporations legal personhood in regard to the right of Free Speech under the First Amendment. The application of financial pressure by the pensions abridges that right. Hence the Illinois Bill is unconstitutional and under the Supreme Court Ruling Marbury vs Madison, automatically null and void.

The use of any coercive tactic to alter the political views of another party is defined as an act of terror under the USA PATRIOT act.

So, the legislature, along with demonstrating that they actually serve a foreign government ahead of the people of Illinois, are not only unconstitutional, but terrorists!

Pension funds ordered to divest companies that support boycott of Israel

Five US public sector pension funds are to divest from companies that boycott investment in Israel after a state government passed new legislation forcing the move.

The US state of Illinois saw its House of Representatives and Senate both unanimously pass legislation requiring five state-funded pension schemes to identify all companies that boycott Israel and divest their direct and indirect holdings.

Secretary of State John Kerry v. His Subordinate Victoria Nuland, Regarding Ukraine

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, on May 12th, responding to Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko’s assertions that Ukraine will retake Crimea and will conquer Donbass:

“I have not had a chance – I have not read the speech. I haven’t seen any context. I have simply heard about it in the course of today. But if indeed President Poroshenko is advocating an engagement in a forceful effort at this time, we would strongly urge him to think twice not to engage in that kind of activity, that that would put Minsk in serious jeopardy. And we would be very, very concerned about what the consequences of that kind of action at this time may be.”

George Soros, NATO, US Color Revolution Machine Behind Unrest in Macedonia

By Brandon Turbeville

With tensions heating up between the United States and Russia over a number of issues - Ukraine, BRICS, sanctions, and NATO encirclement to name a few - the West continues its move in toward Russia's borders. The latest target in the Anglo-American destabilization campaign has now come forward - Macedonia.

In the attempt to destroy the elected government of Macedonia, George Soros, NATO, and the Western Color Revolution apparatus have all come together to ensure that the will of the Macedonian people is denied as is the will of populations in all Western-style democracies.

As informed observers might well suspect, any color revolution taking place in Eastern Europe will involve the heavy hand of George Soros...

Look Homeward, Hegemon Part 1: Cold War 2.0 Abroad, Cold Civil War Between the U.S. Government and Its People At Home

To summarize the domestic and international situation — not only is the U.S. government waging a new Cold War abroad with Russia and China, but there’s abundant evidence it’s also entering a ‘cold war’ with large parts of the American population. As during the first Cold War, with the rise of what President Dwight Eisenhower called ‘the military industrial complex’,27 the external ‘Cold War 2.0’ is supplementing the post-9/11 ‘War on Terror’ as a driver of enhanced government power at home. Consider:

1) The U.S. is in a second Cold War with Russia and China it initiated in Syria, Ukraine and now with the ‘pivot to Asia’, in order to defend the dollar’s world reserve currency status.......
