Texas Governor Has Called For CONVENTION OF THE STATES – To STOP Barack Obama – It’s Happening…

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott is calling for “The Texas Plan.” He wants a convention of the states and to invoke Article V of the US Constitution so new amendments can be proposed to rein in the federal government. Abbott has been at the forefront of stopping illegal immigration in his state and across the US. He wholeheartedly endorses Ted Cruz for president as well. Some of the amendments in the proposal include prohibiting administrative agencies and the unelected bureaucrats from creating and preempting federal law; mandating that Congress balance its budget; allowing a two-thirds majority of the states to override a US Supreme Court decision, federal law or regulation; and prohibiting Congress from regulating activity that occurs within one state’s borders. I think it sounds fantastic.

Hillary Rebuffs Bernie’s Policy Demands

Eager to hold the political “center,” Hillary Clinton has budged little on Bernie Sanders’s policy proposals beyond nice-sounding platitudes, a strategy that could lead to clashes at the Democratic convention, says Lawrence Davidson.

Hillary Clinton has pursued the presidency for almost a decade with a tenacious determination. She almost achieved the nomination in 2008 only to lose to Barack Obama. That led to an eight-year stifling of this ambition.

Finally, in the long run-up to the 2016 election, she was convinced the nomination was hers.

Jeremy Corbyn gives #Chilcot statement

The much-edited Chilcot Report finally arrived and Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has issued a pretty-sounding apology for his party’s decision to go to war in Iraq in 2003. He called it the most serious foreign policy calamity of the last 60 years and “a stain on our party and country”.

It’s unfortunate that he dignifies the evil Iraq war conspiracy by suggesting it had anything to do with policy of the British people. It was a private venture, pledged in secret, by a Labour prime minister and his closest henchmen, and backed by the Cabinet.

Iraq Verdict: Trouble if heads don’t roll

First and foremost it was not so much a foreign policy disaster as a flat-out war crime for which Blair as chief perpetrator must be tried. And so must his Cabinet, who carry collective responsibility.

A PERIOD OF MAJOR CIVIL UNREST LOOMS – HOW TO WIN AN INEVITABLE CONFRONTATION WITH THE STATUS QUO

To summarize, I think the activist community across American needs to do two things:

1. Stick together. Black, white, rural, urban, we are all in this together. Don’t allow yourselves to become divided — we have the same opponent. Never forget that.

2. Keep things non-violent. If violence happens, always make sure the government fires the first shots. If the general public perceives you to be out there looking for a fight as opposed to reacting to state aggression, you will lose. Think outside the box, be creative and employ non-violent civil disobedience whenever possible.

1,400 US Mayors Just Slammed the White House for Risking Nuclear War With Russia

War games and nuclear policy perpetuated by the Obama administration are “fueling growing tensions” with Russia and putting the world at risk of a nuclear war, according to an official nonpartisan organization consisting of 1,407 mayors and other leaders of cities with 30,000 or more inhabitants.

In a unanimous decision at their 84th annual conference, the United States Conference of Mayors (USCM) passed a resolution condemning President Barack Obama’s decision to set the U.S. on track to spend $1 trillion over the next 30 years to “maintain and modernize its nuclear bombs and warheads, production facilities, delivery systems, and command and control.”

“The Obama administration has […] reduced the US nuclear stockpile less than any post-Cold War presidency,” the resolution, passed in Indianapolis on June 27, reads.

Elie Wiesel: Poseur For Peace

An obvious and oft-sighted criticism of the Nobel Peace Prize is just how many of its recipients have virtually no connection to the cause of peace or its advancement. If anything often it seems a reward for its negation. Henry Kissinger, recipient in 1973, would have to be the gold standard here. That very year saw Kissinger orchestrate the destruction of democracy in Chile and that was only after the secret bombing of Cambodia was concluded. Of Course stretch it forward and backward a couple of years and Kissinger’s trail of destruction extends from Bangladesh to East Timor.

“No Pay Since February:” Interview With A Haitian Doctor On Strike

I had the opportunity to sit down with a young Haitian resident physician yesterday. He is one of 450 Haitian resident physicians who has been on strike since March 18. This physician strike has closed down Haiti’s three main public hospitals: General Hospital (University Hospital-HUEH) and Hopital Universitaire de la Paix (HUP) in Port-au-Prince, and Hopital Justinien in Cap Haitien. It is the longest physician strike in Haiti’s recent history.

How distant we’ve ventured from those original settlers who said, “No more!” and declared their independence. They fought and sacrificed to be free of a government that oppressed them, taxed them, stole from them, and enforced rules without any type of representation upon them.

In a Fourth of July holiday special, we begin with the words of Frederick Douglass. Born into slavery around 1818, Douglass became a key leader of the abolitionist movement. On July 5, 1852, in Rochester, New York, he gave one of his most famous speeches, "The Meaning of July Fourth for the Negro." He was addressing the Rochester Ladies Antislavery Society. This is actor James Earl Jones reading the speech during a performance of historian Howard Zinn’s acclaimed book, "Voices of a People’s History of the United States." He was introduced by Zinn.

4th of July: Maybe This Year Americans Will Declare Independence From Their Bankster Overlords

The fourth of July is US Independence Day, the biggest national holiday, and Americans do have reason to celebrate. They rule the world, with hundreds of bases and the most powerful navy and air force. Even the President of Russia said that they were ‘probably the only superpower’. But more and more Americans have come to doubt their independence.

If they rule the world, why is their life becoming worse? Why are salaries falling, why is the middle class disappearing, why are plants moving to Mexico or China? Why do today’s Americans not have the same expectations in education, jobs, or buying a house like their grandfathers had in the 1950’s? Why do Americans need their ships to provoke China in the South China Sea and their tanks to be in the Baltic states? Why should Americans be ashamed of the fact that their ‘foreign’ ancestors founded America?

Zionism Begins to Unravel - An Analysis by Lawrence Davidson

In truth, Zionism and the state it created have always been ideologically rigid. Every effort at modifying the movement’s basic demand for a state exclusive to one people, from early concepts of “cultural Zionism” to more recent notions of “liberal Zionism,” has failed. The occasional bit of propagandistic dissimulation notwithstanding, Zionist leaders from Ben Gurion to Netanyahu have been dedicated to (a) territorial expansion based on the principle of Eretz Israel (greater Israel) and (b) the principle of inequality

Holocaust-Denying French Professor Gets 1 Year in Prison

The Court of Cassation rejected the appeal last week of Vincent Reynouard, who has since fled the country and is presumed escaped. It was the last of several appeals by Reynouard to the sentence imposed last year by a Caen court over a 2014 video in which he said the Holocaust may not have happened and called state commemorations of the deportation of French Jews ”manipulation of memory,” France 3 reported. Reynouard has lost his license to teach in the public education system over repeated Holocaust denials.

The Declaration of Independence: Still relevant today?

Lately, the purveyors of more war and dictatorship have taken to diismissing protests that various government actions violate the Constitution and the Bill of Rights by simply declaring those documents as irrelevent, being that they are almost 250 years old.

But the fact is that the Constituion does change over time, through the approved process of Amendment, and today's Constitution bears little resemblance to the one signed in Congress all those years ago. Like the White House itself, little of the original actually remains. But the founding principle remains the same. For government to be legitimate and legal, it must constrain itself within the limits imposed by that Constitution.

As for the Declaration, it was never the law of the land, but a symbolic statement. Yet not only is it still relevant, it is even more relevant today that at any time I have been alive.

On this 4th of July, many will gather throughout this country and instead of embracing the courage and commitment of those brave souls who pledged their “lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor” to the cause of Liberty will instead honor and glorify the very people our founders warned would destroy all they fought to gain for themselves and their posterity.

FBI Admits Supplying The Dummy-Bomb To 'Domestic Terrorist': Man Arrested For Bureau of Land Management Bomb Plot Admittedly Set Up By Multiple Undercover FBI Employees

The FBI admits in their own felony complaint that multiple undercover FBI agents infiltrated Bill Keebler's 'Patriot Defense Force' in Utah, encouraged Keebler to use explosives, volunteered to make them, and then supplied the inert explosive device for Keebler to plant at an abandoned Arizona Bureau of Land Management facility. Also note that FBI Special Agent Steven Daniels swore to and signed this felony complaint on June 22, 2016. Daniels claimed that "KEEBLER had conducted reconnaissance on the BLM facility in Arizona in October, 2015, with Lavoy Finicum." However, at the June 29, 2016 hearing, prosecutors changed their story and corrected that lie, backtracking and admitting that Lavoy Finicum was not there. This begs the question, what else is Daniels lying about or exaggerating in the felony complaint against Bill Keebler?

Trump better choice by far – Alan Sabrosky

America Should Exit From NATO and the National Security State

snip: What did U.S. and NATO officials think — that people would simply remain where they were so that they could get blown to bits with the bombs that were being dropped on them, by the U.S. assassination program, or by the massive civil-war violence that came as a result of the U.S. and NATO regime-change operations?

People don’t ordinarily behave in that fashion. Most people prefer to live rather than die and will do anything they can to survive. That’s why those refugees fled to Europe— to escape the horrific consequences of interventionism by NATO and the U.S. national security state in the Middle East.

I wonder if deep down, those who are lamenting and groaning about the Brexit vote realize that: If there had been no U.S. invasion and occupation of Iraq, no regime change in Libya, no U.S. and NATO bombing and interventionism in Syria, there wouldn’t have been a massive refugee crisis in Europe and, almost certainly, a rejection of Brexit by a majority of British voters.

There is not a shadow of doubt that one of the crucial motivators behind this deal was economics. Israel’s Netanyahu alluded to this crucial aspect on the 27th June 2016 stating that the deal has “immense implications for the Israeli economy”. Haaretz ventures to shed further light on the matter by alluding to a gas pipeline deal between Turkey and Israel.

COMMON SENSE by Thomas Paine

Society in every state is a blessing, but government even in its best
state is but a necessary evil; in its worst state an intolerable one;
for when we suffer, or are exposed to the same miseries BY A GOVERNMENT,
which we might expect in a country WITHOUT GOVERNMENT, our calamity
is heightened by reflecting that we furnish the means by which we suffer.
Government, like dress, is the badge of lost innocence; the palaces of kings
are built on the ruins of the bowers of paradise. For were the impulses
of conscience clear, uniform, and irresistibly obeyed, man would need
no other lawgiver; but that not being the case, he finds it necessary
to surrender up a part of his property to furnish means for the protection
of the rest; and this he is induced to do by the same prudence which in every
other case advises him out of two evils to choose the least. WHEREFORE,
security being the true design and end of government, it unanswerably follows,

CIVIL DISOBEDIENCE by Henry David Thoreau

I heartily accept the motto, "That government is best
which governs least"; and I should like to see it acted up

amounts to this, which also I believe--"That government is
best which governs not at all"; and when men are prepared
for it, that will be the kind of government which the will
have. Government is at best but an expedient; but most
governments are usually, and all governments are sometimes,
inexpedient. The objections which have been brought against
a standing army, and they are many and weighty, and deserve
to prevail, may also at last be brought against a standing
government. The standing army is only an arm of the
standing government. The government itself, which is only
the mode which the people have chosen to execute their will,
is equally liable to be abused and perverted before the

Whether Farage can help them is an open question but he offers a clear vision of change fuelled by nostalgic glory and a strong sense of belonging.

Corbyn, on the other hand, has little to offer although this is not entirely his fault. The Labour philosophy is full of contradictions and holes. On the one hand, Corbyn and Labour claim to represent the worker and the poor. But Corbyn and his party also subscribe to cultural Marxist and cosmopolitan ideas that advocate immigration, diversity, identitarian politics and various measures of ‘correctness.’ One cannot support the worker while simultaneously advocating immigration that puts local jobs at risk.

The Declaration of Independence: Still relevent today?

Lately, the purveyors of more war and dictatorship have taken to diismissing protests that various government actions violate the Constitution and the Bill of Rights by simply declaring those documents as irrelevent, being that they are almost 250 years old.

But the fact is that the Constituion does change over time, through the approved process of Amendment, and today's Constitution bears little resemblance to the one signed in Congress all those years ago. Like the White House itself, little of the original actually remains. But the founding principle remains the same. For government to be legitimate and legal, it must constrain itself within the limits imposed by that Constitution.

As for the Declaration, it was never the law of the land, but a symbolic statement. Yet not only is it still relevant, it is even more relevant today that at any time I have been alive.

July 4th, 2016 interview with Washington, Jefferson, Adams: America’s REQUIREMENT from our Declaration of Independence & Constitution to arrest .01% criminal ‘Nobility class,’ or suffer as their indentured servants

The Brexit reshuffles world geopolitics

No-one seems to comprehend the consequences of the British decision to leave the European Union.

While the veil is being ripped apart before our eyes, our elites do not understand the situation any better than the Communist Party of Soviet Russia could see the consequences of the fall of the Berlin Wall in November 1989 – the dissolution of the USSR in December 1991.

In identical fashion, we will soon be witnessing the dissolution of the European Union, then NATO, and unless they pay close attention, the dismantling of the United States.

I Remember My Name – Palestinian Poetry

The title underscores a common torment that permeates much of this book. All three of these gifted writers are exiles from their homeland, and whether they speak of love, loss, anger, heartache, resolve, despair, triumph, tragedy, or even the banal, there is often an undercurrent of an exile’s longing for home, tinged with the combined anguish and guilt of being spared the fate of that home.

WASHINGTON POST: “Brexit a reminder some things shouldn’t be decided by the people”

It has been absolutely delicious to watch the American media melt down since last week’s Brexit vote. Nothing terrifies liberal elitists more than an aware and energized electorate. The MSM fears the rise of a voting class that doesn’t march to its orders, and they fear this Brexit stuff will spread.

At least they’re being honest about the end game now, whether intentionally or unintentionally.

The Elites Have Lost The Right To Rule

Snip: The truth is they don’t think the economy is rigged, they know it is. This knowledge coupled with an understanding that the status quo will do everything it can to keep it that way, is precisely why so many people are grasping for something, anything to potentially blow up the status quo irrespective of any negative consequences. The people aren’t to blame for this situation, the elites are.

‘We the Prisoners’: The Demise of the Fourth Amendment

are you one of the oppressors or one of the oppressed? - silk stockings

snip: In a carceral state, there is no difference between the treatment meted out to a law-abiding citizen and a convicted felon: both are equally suspect and treated as criminals, without any of the special rights and privileges reserved for the governing elite.

In a carceral state, there are only two kinds of people: the prisoners and the prison guards.

With every new law enacted by federal and state legislatures, every new ruling handed down by government courts, and every new military weapon, invasive tactic and egregious protocol employed by government agents, “we the people”—the prisoners of the American police state—are being pushed that much further into a corner, our backs against the prison wall.

It is as near the geographical center as you can possibly estimate in an odd-shaped country like this, and it was the beating heart of The Mexican War of Independence, finally ending the occupation by the Spanish Empire nearly two centuries ago.

To top it off it is crushing honorable agents of which if all agents were like we would likely NOT be having to complain. Tossing the good and keeping the bad or the too afraid to speak out……SMASH and scatter to the wind, like JFK wanted to do with the CIA. Thats what we say.

MEXICAN RESISTANCE TO NEOLIBERAL SOCIAL CUTS

Eight people were killed in Nochixtlán, a town near Oaxaca City in Mexico, after turning out to support a blockade by teachers protesting neoliberal cuts to education and other social programs, reported independent journalist Andalusia Knoll Soloff from the scene of the clashes with police.
“The residents came out when they heard about the repression on Sunday [June 19],” Soloff told me over a noisy phone line. “They had come out to support the teachers, and many, mostly young men, came out to help the people who were injured. One family had a 19-year-old son who went in the ambulance to help the wounded and when they arrived at the blockade, he was killed by the police.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the level, and kind, of serfdom and poverty, into which the globalists in this country want to shove you and your kids.

In the most peaceful and lawful ways possible, this must be contested in this country.

You, and your children, have better things to do than become cannon fodder for the US government's continuance of wars with which to expropriate resources to which it, and the corporations which fund them, have absolutely no moral right.

CFR Member Calls on Elites to “Rise Up Against Ignorant Masses”

In a column for Foreign Policy Magazine, Council on Foreign Relations member James Traub argues that the elite need to “rise up” against the “mindlessly angry” ignorant masses in order to prevent globalization from being derailed by the populist revolt that led to Brexit and the rise of Donald Trump.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Ignorant masses." Sounds a lot like "The Great Unwashed", "Hoi polloi", "the plebeians", "the rabble", "the dregs of society", "riffraff", or any of the derogatory terms used to denigrate those who lie, cheat, and steal their way to wealth and power, and seek to justify their ascendancy with an illusion of superiority.

“Our politicians have aggressively pursued a policy of globalization — moving our jobs, our wealth, and our factories to Mexico and overseas,” Trump declared. “Globalization has made the financial elite who donate to politicians very wealthy. But it has left millions of our workers with nothing but poverty and heartache.”

Death to All Zombies!

When things fall apart in stressed complex systems, they tend to fall apart fast. It’s called phase change. Too many things in 21st-century life have depended on sheer trust that the people-in-charge know what they are doing. That trust has subsisted on the doling out of money-from-nothing: debt, reckless bond issuance. TARP, QEs, bail-outs, bail-ins, Operation Twists, Ponzi schemes… the whole sad-ass armamentarium of banking necromancy. The politicians let it get out of hand. Things that can’t go on don’t, and now they won’t.

Deutsche Bank: "There's No Escaping The Fact That This Is A Class War"

The shockwaves and consequences around Brexit will resonate for years. It's probably an understatement to say that most in financial markets regret the UK's decision to leave but we should respect the forces that have been pushing us towards what has always been an inevitable political accident sometime soon. I wasn't sure whether the Brexit vote was the one but I was pretty convinced one was coming and this is probably not the last. Spain yesterday started a general election cycle (more below but relatively market friendly) of the largest 5 euro-area economies (Spain, Holland, France, Germany and Italy) over the next 18 months or so, not forgetting the US this November. Throw in the crucial senate reform vote in Italy in October and you've got plenty of opportunity for rebellion against the establishment that haven't managed to produce satisfactory enough growth for the lower paid/lower skilled to offset the forces of globalisation and immigration.

Ron Paul: The People Will Not Suffer From Brexit, Only the Global Banking Elite Will

George Soros exposed the dependence of the elite on the EU when he took to fearmongering about rampant financial collapse upon Brexit.

“The Brexit crash will make all of you poorer — be warned,” Soros penned in an op-ed for the Guardian on June 20. “My 60 years of experience tells me the pound will plummet, along with your living standards. The only winners will be the speculators […]

“A vote to leave could see the week end with a Black Friday, and serious consequences for ordinary people.”

However, as Ron Paul so aptly pointed out on Friday, the people’s suffering will be minimal. It is the banking elite who are running scared.

COMMUNIST REVOLUTION AND THE CREATION OF ISRAEL

Is it not the international politics’ most significant coincidence that the Balfour declaration for the creation of Israel was passed in the same fateful year: November 1917, in which the February and October communist revolutions were taking place in Russia? Coincidences do happen but sometimes they are contrived to look like mere coincidences. No informed person can deny the importance of oil for the industrial economies, but it is generally believed in the foreign policy circles that oil took a center stage in the international politics only after the collective Arab oil embargo of 1973 against the West, when the price of oil quadrupled in a short span.

Barclays and RBS shares suspended amid Brexit crash

Two British banks were briefly suspended from trading in London after heavy losses triggered emergency measures that froze their shares.

Barclays and Royal Bank of Scotland both tripped so-called circuit breakers after crashing more than 8% on Monday. When trading resumed, Barclays (BCS) extended its losses to more than 10% and RBS (RBS) shed 13%.

Both banks confirmed their shares were suspended, but did not comment further.
