Student Debt Strikers Call Fed's Loan Forgiveness Plan a Bureaucratic Sham

Despite a new announcement by the U.S. Department of Education that it will begin a process of debt-forgiveness for students cheated into high-priced loans by predatory for-profit colleges, one of the groups most responsible for lobbying to have the debts erased is reacting bitterly, saying the plan is more complicated than it needs to be and that those already victimized by one government-backed scheme should not be put through the ringer for a second time.

Carbon Credits: The Future World Currency

You know, those predatory loans globalists offer 3rd world countries knowing they will never be able to produce a high enough GDP to even service the interest on the debt, let alone the principle? Then just like with every other situation in regards to this scam, once they fail to pay back the loans, the IMF and World Bank take control of all the resources and production, and give it back to industrialized countries’ corporate entities.

Finally, as a solution, a conference or summit is formed, usually by none other than, the U.N. The conference is held and blame is put on the super powers for the “rise” in greenhouse gasses and ocean temperatures.

The solution? Implement one of two options, or possibly a mix of the two.

Pfizer Report Warns of Possible Zoloft and Birth Defect Link

A Pfizer Inc. report shows a scientist warned executives last year about a potential link between the anti-depressant drug Zoloft and birth defects and recommended changes to the medication’s safety warning.

The document from a Pfizer drug-safety official might complicate the company’s efforts to fend off lawsuits brought by parents of children with malformed hearts. Pfizer has consistently rejected suggestions Zoloft caused newborn abnormalities and said Monday the document was taken out of context by lawyers suing the company.

Pfizer faces more than 1,000 suits alleging the company sold Zoloft, once the U.S.’s most-prescribed anti-depressant, knowing it could cause cardiac abnormalities in newborns. The company successfully defended in the first lawsuit to go to trial in April, before the disclosure of the document last week in a Philadelphia case.

Hillary's plans to stuff the ballot box

Since Hillary won’t have the youthful exuberance that propelled Obama to his unlikely double victory, she plans to build a whole new electorate out of people who didn’t vote for Obama. That’s the gist of her speech in Houston last week, which her friends at MSNBC called a “far-reaching vision for expanding access to the ballot box.”

Who are the new voters to whom Hillary wants to give “access to the ballot box”? They include felons and non-citizens, along with anyone who can’t prove identity, citizenship, or residence within the voting precinct.

She also plans to harvest millions of new votes by expanding the dangerous practices of same-day registration and early voting, which enable Democrats to badger, berate, bribe, or bamboozle reluctant low-information voters to the polls. Democratic Party and union workers can identify reluctant voters and harass them until the party worker verifies that they have actually cast their ballot.

Supreme Court Protects Abusers, Fails Victims - Again

The Supreme Court has a very mixed track record when it comes to protecting women. As a domestic violence advocate, Criminologist, and activist for a decade, I am deeply concerned that the U.S still fails to prioritize women’s safety. Given that globally more women ages 15-45 die from men’s violence than of cancer, malaria, war and traffic accidents combined, far more needs to be done to protect women and girls. The courts can and should play a far bigger role in doing so.

Rand Paul Completely Ignores Anniversary of USS LIBERTY Massacre by Israel

Presidential hopeful Rand Paul callously ignored the 48th anniversary of Israel's attack on the USS Liberty yesterday. On social media, Paul tried to hawk copies of his new book, promoted an upcoming congressional baseball game, and repeatedly boasted that he now has '2 million followers on Facebook!' Rand Paul regularly posts about all sorts of obscure anniversaries and events, such as when he celebrated 'National Hug Day!' earlier this year. The U.S.S. Liberty slaughter, however, where 34 American sailors were killed and many others permanently maimed and injured, doesn't warrant a mention from the allegedly pro-American senator. Rand Paul often gives speeches oddly noting that 'Israelis Don't Burn American Flags' and even admitted in a 2013 Senate speech that he visits with Israeli groups daily." Paul also insists that Israel is "one friend that never leaves our side, has never wavered." [See our site RandPaulZionist.com for much, much more on this topic.]

EMAILS: CORPORATE LOBBYIST THANKS US TRADE REP FOR PASTING HIS WISH-LIST RIGHT INTO TPP

No one is allowed to know what's in TPP -- members of Congress were kept in the dark until the last minute, then threatened with prison if they blabbed. But of course, America's top corporate lobbyists not only got to see TPP, they helped to write it.

USA Freedom Act is Anything But

To get to the point: there is nothing — nothing at all — in any recent law or legislative action that will in any way weaken the police state structure our government has put into place for rapid deployment. You are not any more free than you were last week and, no matter what the Congress has done with the expired provisions of the Patriot Act or the newly developed and Orwellian-named “USA Freedom Act”, you are not going to be any more free next week.

BBC Panorama Programme: Promoting GMO and Cultivating Ignorance

“There is no global or regional shortage of food. There never has been and nor is there ever likely to be. India has a superabundance of food. South America is swamped in food. The US, Australia, New Zealand, and Europe are swamped in food (e.g. Billen et al 2011). In Britain, like in many wealthy countries, nearly half of all row crop food production now goes to biofuels… China isn’t quite swamped but it still exports food… No foodpocalypse there either.”

Congress Didn't Notice the FBI Creating a 'Small Air Force' for Surveillance

: Excessive executive branch secrecy and the legislature’s oversight failures
Last week, Americans learned that even as the NSA collected information on their telephone and Internet behavior, the FBI was using fictitious companies to secretly operate what the AP called “a small air force with scores of low-flying planes across the country carrying video and, at times, cell phone surveillance technology.” The news organization reported that surveillance flights may be more than a decade old, and identified “more than 100 flights since late April orbiting both major cities and rural areas.”

US Defense Department paid 14 NFL teams $5.4M to honor soldiers

The waving of the red, white and blue, comes with a healthy dose of green. According to Christopher Baxter and Jonathan Salant of NJ.com, the New Jersey Army National Guard and the Department of Defense, paid the Jets a total of $377,000 from 2011 to 2014, for their salutes and other advertising, citing federal contracts. The NFL does just about everything it can to align itself with the military, whether that means discussing itself using the terms of warfare, or making overt displays of respect to those who have served in the armed forces. Of course, this is hardly a magnanimous gesture — it serves as positive PR for a league that frequently takes harsh criticism on a host of other issues.

By Jay Dyer

The plan to integrate nations into continental trading blocs is not a new idea. In Dr. Carroll Quigley’s Tragedy and Hope, reference is made to the plan of the Third Reich to create global trading blocs, which itself is an older British Royal Society plan. Daniel Estulin, in his The Bilderberg Group and Shadow Masters provides detailed investigations into both Bilderberg and its many-headed Hydra organization, exemplified in Captain America 2: Winter Soldier. Founded by Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands, as well as numerous other Atlanticist elites like David Rockefeller, Paul Van Zeeland and numerous other media barons, corporate heads, bankers, and countless other people better than us.

LAND OF THE DEBT SERF – HOW “AUTO TITLE LOAN” COMPANIES ARE RUTHLESSLY PREYING ON AMERICA’S GROWING UNDERCLASS

Short-term lenders, seeking a detour around newly toughened restrictions on payday and other small loans, are pushing Americans to borrow more money than they often need by using their debt-free autos as collateral. Their hefty principal and high interest rates are creating another avenue that traps unwary consumers in a cycle of debt. For about 1 out of 9 borrowers, the loan ends with their vehicles being repossessed…
