Rallies held against Monsanto-Bayer agrochemical merger in several countries

Protesters took to the streets of Buenos Aires, Hamburg and Paris on Saturday to decry agrochemical corporate giant Monsanto-Bayer-Syngenta.

Bayer AG and Monsanto agreed to a $66 billion takeover deal in 2016. It sparked criticism among environmentalists and farmers across Europe.

Gaza and Palestine 101 for Americans

By Chris Kanthan

One should ask, “Why are Palestinians protesting?” before cheering for their death in Gaza. Blaming Hamas is a talking point that hides many facts and realities. In the last few days, 85 Palestinians have been shot to death and 2000+ have been shot and wounded — including 200 doctors, paramedics and journalists — by Israeli snipers. Number of Israelis injured: ZERO!...

Gaza border protests resume as UN calls for inquiry

"Israel completely rejects the resolution that was adopted by an automatic anti-Israel majority whose results were known from the start," he said. "Israel will continue to defend its citizens and soldiers as it has the right to defend itself."

Essential history to understand the present: Lie-started and illegal wars on Iraq and Afghanistan, rhetoric for war on Iran

I began this paper in 2005, updated until 2009, and offer more recent but less extensive versions here and here.

Muslim leaders call for international protection force for Palestinians

t a special summit in Turkey convened by President Tayyip Erdogan, they also pledged to take "appropriate political (and) economic measures" against countries that followed the United States in moving their Israel embassies to contested Jerusalem from Tel Aviv.
Erdogan, who is campaigning for re-election next month, used the summit to verbally attack Israel, comparing the actions of its forces to Nazi Germany's treatment of Jews in World War Two, when millions were killed in concentration camps.
Note: Ignorant comparison to Germany. Millions were not killed,hospitals were provided.

ISRAEL USES DRONES TO DROP TEAR GAS ON GAZANS FOR FIRST TIME

Israeli occupying forces used unmanned drones to drop tear gas on Palestinians in Gaza for the first time last Friday, according to the Times of Israel.

Some 200 Gazans had gathered at the border fence with Israel as part of a weekly protest against the ten-year blockade when an unmanned aerial vehicle approached the scene. Footage from the Lebanese Al-Mayadeen news agency shows the drone dropping canisters of tear gas on the protesters who can then be seen running blindly from the scene.

The Gazan Health Ministry said that at least two people were wounded in the clashes, with at least eight other Gazans injured by Israeli fire during protests elsewhere in the coastal enclave.

According to military sources, the usage of drones to fire tear gas is still experimental and has not yet been made operational.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Josef Mengele would have been so damned proud of this IDF "experiment"!!!

How I beat a Speeding Ticket in California Superior Court of Appeals (Without A Lawyer)

Judge Mary Fuller was a very nasty character, ignored the law, and pronounced me guilty. Even though the prosecution could not produce a real traffic survey as required by law, Fuller said I was guilty. See, this is why I fight traffic tickets. They aren't about safety or upholding the law at all, they are about revenue for a criminal government who breaks the law daily and violates their own laws, and the rights of the people. I appealed Fuller's phony conviction through the mail.

How Israel helped create Hamas

Controlled Opposition.

Hamas launched in 1988 in Gaza at the time of the first intifada, or uprising, with a charter now infamous for its anti-Semitism and its refusal to accept the existence of the Israeli state. But for more than a decade prior, Israeli authorities actively enabled its rise.

Live NEWS/PALESTINE Laila Anwar al-Ghandour becomes the face of Gaza carnage

This was caused by Hate!

Laila Anwar al-Ghandour, an eight-month-old baby girl, died of tear-gas inhalation at dawn, Gaza's Ministry of Health says, highlighting international outrage over the killings by Israeli soldiers of 60 Palestinians who joined in a massive protest against the opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem.

Laila was the youngest fatality of the demonstrations on Monday, which were held in the run up to the 70th anniversary on Tuesday of the Nakba, or Catastrophe, the day the state of Israel was established on May 15, 1948, forcing hundreds of thousands of Palestinians from their homes.

North Korea threatens to CANCEL nuclear summit with Trump because it believes 'provocative military ruckus' of joint U.S.-South Korea drills are rehearsal for invasion

When it rains it pours!

North Korea's government says it is considering calling off a planned nuclear summit between dictator Kim Jong-un and U.S. President Donald Trump.

Kim's regime said through state-run news agency KCNA that ongoing 'Max Thunder' joint military exercises between the United States and South Korea are actually a 'rehearsal for invasion' of the North.

'The United States will also have to undertake careful deliberations about the fate of the planned North Korea-U.S. summit in light of this provocative military ruckus jointly conducted with the South Korean authorities,' KCNA said.

‘If Not Now’ blocks traffic outside Trump DC hotel to protest embassy move

While senior White House officials were in Jerusalem today to mark the opening of the U.S. embassy, and 55 Palestinian protesters in Gaza were killed by Israeli forces, young Jews with the group If Not Now blocked traffic in Washington DC outside the Trump International Hotel for two hours by erecting an “Embassy of Freedom” to protest the administration’s move.

Rebecca Hornstein, a Rabbinical school student from Philadelphia said, “Moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem puts the U.S. stamp of approval on the ongoing evictions and dispossession of Palestinians in East Jerusalem and the ongoing violence directed at Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank– all of which are counter to Jewish values.”

The Nonexistent War on Cops and the Myth of the Epidemic of Unarmed Black Men Being Gunned Down by Cops

In March, Sacramento police officers shot and killed 22-year old Stephon Clark who was holding nothing other than a cell phone. The cops thought he had a gun and he was running through the neighborhood smashing car windows and breaking sliding glass doors and he was high on a number of drugs. The protests afterward shut down a freeway and city streets, barred Sacramento Kings fans from entering the arena, and resulted in smashed car windows and other vandalism.

Why are 2/3rds of US children ‘not proficient’ in math? Leading teacher demonstrates: texts LIE about ‘real-world math problems’, stupefy children to tune-out from counting what’s most important (like US .01% admitting they ‘lost’ $21 TRILLION of taxes)

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

hat tip: David Icke

The US Department of Education reports that two-thirds of American school children are not proficient in mathematics (here, here).

In 2016 I wrote an article series about public education that includes a section on math that documents:
1. Math texts lie about “real world math problems” with ridiculous and contrived word problems.
2. Math texts don’t even care to define mathematics or algebra.
3. Algebra 1 fail rates are up to 50% of students, and is connected to the above two points along with less than 1% of adults using algebraic formulas in work.

The outcomes of such “education” include:

1. Americans concluding “math” is difficult and something to tune-out from; stupefying us from counting what’s most important in Life like US .01% “leaders” admitting they “lost” $21 trillion of our taxes (~$200,000 per average US household). Please pause to let that fact penetrate.

Some demonstrators attending a march for higher salaries in London have detonated smoke bombs.

$21 trillion in taxes reported by US military and HUD as ‘missing’ (~$200,000 per US household) + monetary reform/public banking benefits (~$1,000,000 per household) = criminal lying, looting rogue state empire DEMANDING .01% arrests (obviously, right?)

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

In 2016 I reported on the US Department of Defense (DoD) admitting they “lost” $6.5 trillion of our taxes; ~$65,000 per average US household. In 2017 I updated upon Catherine Austin Fitts’ reporting, with further work by Michigan State University Economics Professor Mark Skidmore and Fitts leading work to examine available DoD and Housing and Urban Development (HUD) reports that total $21 trillion “missing” from just those two areas of government from 1998 to 2015 (here, here, here), that equals ~$200,000 looted from every American household.

The benefits of monetary reform and public banking are ~$1,000,000 per US household in contrast with Americans being told by “leaders” we owe over $20,000,000,000,000 (20 trillion dollars) because the US model is the “best system in the world.”

HASPEL SAYS CIA WON’T TORTURE AGAIN AS RAY MCGOVERN IS DRAGGED OUT OF HEARING

Instead of facing a judge to defend herself against prosecution for violating U.S. law prohibiting torture, 33-year CIA veteran Gina Haspel on Wednesday faced the Senate Intelligence Committee in a hearing to confirm her as director of the Central Intelligence Agency. Haspel does not look like someone who would be associated with torture. Instead she would not be out of place as your next door neighbor or as a kindly grade-school teacher. “I think you will find me to be a typical middle-class American,” she said in her opening statement.

Donald Trump angers Scots after luxury golf resort bans Irn-Bru

Trump has really done it now. He has banned the Scots #1 soft drink from his Scottish resort and golf course. Boy is he in big trouble now!
Where is William Wallace when you need him. Trump can kill them,attack their country,sanction them,but the Scots will never give up their Irn Bru!

It is the best-selling soft drink in Scotland, often referred to as the country's "other national drink," so it should perhaps come as no surprise that the banning of Irn-Bru from a luxury golf resort owned by Donald Trump has caused many Scots to see, erm, orange.

Former CIA analyst dragged from Haspel hearing by Capitol Police after anti-torture protest

Former CIA analyst and anti-war activist Ray McGovern was forcibly removed from the US Senate hearing where Gina Haspel, President Donald Trump’s nominee for CIA director, was answering questions about her record on torture.

Would she consider a CIA officer being waterboarded by “terrorists” to be immoral?

Truth-Teller Michelle Manning Barish Gave A Great Speech Against The Iraq War (Video)

NY Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, , the top "law enforcement official" in the state, has resigned in disgrace effectively today amid a firestorm of allegations from four different women, who outlined violent and horrific physical and sexual abuse. Two of the four women interviewed for the story agreed to reveal their identity, and one of them is 46-year-old Michelle Manning Barish. In the video below, a very articulate Michelle Barish gives an impassioned speech against the Iraq war. She says that the politicians must "bring the troops home now." She explains that her 21-year-old brother is stationed in Iraq, serving in the Army, that her dad was an Army Ranger and her uncle served in the Air Force. "We come from a proud military family. But we've had to learn the hard way, of so many injustices of this war," she begins in the 4 minute video.

Chicago Police One Step Closer To Using Drone Surveillance At Protests

By Nicholas West

In the wake of tragedies like the Las Vegas shooting, we’ve seen a justification emerge for using drone surveillance of large public events.

However, the use of drones for public protests is also being pursued, which finally has drawn the attention of civil liberties advocates in Chicago...

Karl Marx Was Rothschilds' Third Cousin

Karl Heinrich Marx (5 May 1818 - 14 March 1883), was a 19th century Jewish political ideologue who presented himself to the world as a journalist and economist. He is best known for subverting the nascent Socialist movement, likely as an agent of his cousin Rothschild; and on instructions from his mentor Moses Hess, creating a supposedly "scientific" theory known as Marxism.

Marx came from a long line of Jewish rabbis. He lived in Dean Street, London in squalor. He used to visit the Red Lion Pub at Great Windmill Street, Soho where he and Friedrich Engels were asked to write what became the Communist Manifesto. His best known work is the book Das Kapital, which fails to mention that money is printed out of thin air and by his cousins, the Rothschilds.

Mid-2018: America’s 2nd Revolution for Independence will win with: 1) Facts all on our side, 2) Teamwork, 3) Faith

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

America’s first revolution for independence had three stages:
1. Decades of public awakening to their own government using We the People as colonized work animals to maximize a .01% profits. Founders spoke and wrote, government denied and lied, and most Americans were too busy to clearly embrace those facts.
2. War from 1775 to 1781.
3. Decades of recapture for the US to ironically become the world’s most dangerous and harmful illegal rogue state empire.

Welcome to mid-2018 (more on current status here):
1. All facts on the side of We the People to prove a lying, Orwellian-illegal .01% US rogue state empire.
2. Awakening Americans to these facts, but with central questions: will we win? Do we have enough teammates? What strategies can win?
3. Appropriate perspective and humor of we simple humans thrown into this ridiculously challenging cosmic “game.”

Mid-2018: ‘Tyrant Trump’ not ‘Animal Assad,’ 25,000 sealed federal indictments and Q-Anon’s promises, accepting Life’s timing for justice/truth in wise co-creation

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*
We’re now in the middle months of 2018. With 41 years of civic activism, here are three points I offer for public consideration:

1. Ongoing Orwellian-illegal US rogue state empire apparently continues to neo-colonize Syria and Iran. Apparently.
2. ~25,000 sealed federal indictments means either victory for We the People, victory for the .01%, or just another psyop of the empire.
3. We simple humans can, and should, accept the obvious limitations we have to only and always harmonize with Life/God/All’s timing in our co-creative self-expression for truth and justice. It’s just stupid to tell Life/God/All what should and shouldn’t exist as humble guests on Earth.

Latin Mass Priest Slaps Down "Annoying, Arrogant" Parkland "Revolutionaries" In 'Idolization of Youth" Homily

My favorite Catholic Latin mass priest hits another one out of the park. He mentions Parkland students Hogg and Gonzales by name. The homily summary states, in part, "In this crazy modern world in which we live- in these revolutionary times- everything has been turned upside down, for we are now told that the young should lead, guide, and teach the old. The immature are now expected to provide the example for the mature. The young should not listen, but rather should speak out and not be silenced, for they are now the modern voice of wisdom. But it's interesting to note that the young leading others is actually seen as a curse in the Holy Bible. The prophet Isaiah states that the good Lord would punish Israel by having the young in positions of power: And I will give children to be their princes, and weak effeminate ones shall rule over them- the young shall rise up against the old, and the dishonorable against the honorable."

The catechism slso covers allowable "armed resistance to oppression by political authority." 2264: "...Someone who defends his life is not guilty of murder even if he is forced to deal his aggressor a lethal blow.. Nor is it necessary for salvation that a man omit the act of moderate self-defense to avoid killing the other man, since one is bound to take more care of one's own life than of another's. 2265 Legitimate defense can be not only a right but a grave duty for one who is responsible for the lives of others..."

America’s Most “Jewish” Secular College Votes to Divest from Israel

Students at Barnard College just voted overwhelmingly to ask the school’s administration to divest from and boycott eight companies that do business with Israel and profit from the Israeli government’s treatment of Palestinians. Barnard, a women’s college that is part of Columbia University, passed the referendum by a 64 to 36 percent margin, with about half of the school’s students participating in the vote — a turnout much higher than in previous votes on the subject, perhaps reflecting Israel’s recent shooting of more than 2,000 unarmed Gazan protesters.

The result of the vote is being hailed as a major victory for Palestinian-rights movement BDS, the campaign to boycott, divest and sanction Israel for its violations of international law in Palestine.

If You Limit ANY Free Speech, This is What You Get

The law originally targetted the KKK. Now it has been used to arrest people protesting against white supremacists.

And that is why free speech is so important.

Plenty of people would love to see new laws to stop white supremacists from exercising their–albeit offensive–free speech.

But as this 1951 law demonstrates, the law as it is intended is not always how it is applied.

Ironically, police routinely wear gas masks and face-covering riot helmets at these kinds of events. Apparently, the law doesn’t apply to them. But that is fitting since most laws don’t apply to the people who enforce them.

Have you ever threatened to shoot someone with a rifle because they had a mask on? Me neither. Police are a different breed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I condemn racism of any stripe; in my world, we are ALL children of God, equally, and hopefully carrying a commitment to our purpose as human beings, which is to make this planet just a bit better, however we can, for the next generations.

That being said, the militarization of our police (sometimes courtesy of Israeli military training)causes them to take the kinds of actions which should be used, allegedly "to protect and serve.", which is their task.

We are very lucky on Oahu to have officers who are, in the main, very decent human beings; but I know that on the mainland, this is not always the case.

Nicaragua riots: US State Department pull embassy staff out of the country amid mass violence

The US State Department also raised the threat level for Nicaragua following the deadly protests, and is urging Americans to reconsider any travel plans to the country. The embassy in Managua will no longer provide services to the public, except for emergencies or by phone.

"Violent crime, such as sexual assault and armed robbery, is common," a notice from State read. "Police presence and emergency response are extremely limited outside of major urban areas."

The student-led protests began last week in response to President Daniel Ortega's plan to reform the country's pension plan, which would have increased employer and employee contributions while reducing benefits.

Mr Ortega announced that he was revoking that plan Sunday, hoping to placate the uproar in the country.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder when DC will order in their death squads, in order to quell these riots; it would not be the first time the US government has interfered with issues in Nicarauga by adding to the violence.

Washington Using Currency War To Destabilize Iran

The neoconservative hawks around the US President, notably new National Security head John Bolton and designated Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, are on record that Iran is in Washington’s sights for regime change or at a minimum, economic sanctions and chaos. The rhetoric is not empty. The ground is being laid by US threats to not renew the Iran nuclear agreement in May, a move opposed by the other signatories and a move that would plunge Iran into a deep economic crisis at a time it can ill afford.
The orchestration of the US-led bombing of Syria, regardless of what targets were or were not hit, now sets the propaganda stage for a dramatic escalation of new sanctions against Iran, and for a major destabilization, something not possible in 2009.

What is taking shape now from the side of Washington is preparation to unleash a new wave of economic and financial sanctions on Iran, regardless.

‘Stop US war machine!’ Activists try to obstruct USS Portland commissioning

A crowd of roaring left-wing anti-war activists have staged a protest in Portland during the commissioning of the US Navy's newest vessel, the USS Portland, a San Antonio-class amphibious ship loaded with laser technology.

Some 100 protesters, representing a number of local anti-war organizations, held a protest at the port terminal where the USS Portland’s commissioning ceremony was taking place on Saturday.
