Ten things less likely to kill you than the cops

1,208[i] people were killed by the cops in America in 2015. The number was 1,111[ii] in 2014. With 624[iii] killed so far in 2016, we're on track for 1,168 by the end of the year. Based on an average of 1,160 people killed by police per year in America, let's look at your odds of being killed by a cop relative to some other common (and not-so-common) things that might kill you.

Living in America...

You're 1.8 times more likely to be killed by a cop than by the heat.
You're 20 times more likely to be killed by a cop than by a bee, wasp, or hornet.
You're 24 times more likely to be killed by a cop than by lightning.
You're 41 times more likely to be killed by a cop than by a dog.
You're 53 times more likely to be killed by a cop than by a terrorist attack.............

Over 55k Americans injured, killed by US police in just 1 yr – study

Who is the enemy of America? Russia? China? NOPE! The district of criminals is America's worst and deadliest enemy. And here is the proof!

More than 55,000 Americans were either killed or injured by US police in just one year, a new study has revealed. Most of the deaths were from fatal firearm wounds or excessive use of taser devices.
The study, titled 'Perils of police action: a cautionary tale from US data sets,' covers the year 2012 and offers greater context to the issue of police brutality, which has only grown bigger in the four years since the research.

CONFIRMED: AMIDST SHARPENING CRISIS, POROSHENKO AND CO. HAVE LEFT UKRAINE

Everything is getting hotter in Ukraine. Alexander Turchynov is speaking of martial law. Pavel Sheremet was murdered in Kiev. The situation in Donbass has escalated. Meanwhile, Minister of Internal Affairs head Avakov has left on vacation. So has Kiev Mayor Klitchko. And not only them.

As sources in the Ukrainian Ministry of Transport have relayed to PolitNavigator, on July 22nd in the late evening, a private Golfstream 200 plane (tail number Te-PRM) with President Poroshenko on board departed Kiev International Airport for Malaga, Spain. As Ukrainian media have repeatedly written, Poroshenko has a villa near Malaga.

The president’s departure and his absence in the capital have not been publicized. The President, however, is even issuing instructions from his Spanish estate. On Monday, for example, he instructed the Prime Minister and Mayor of Kiev to strengthen security measures for public safety.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder; is a real, people-driven revolution about to foment in Ukraine to the point where the current government believes it has no choice other than to cut and run?!?

The actions of these leaders seem to suggest that might be in the offing, and sooner rather than later!!

Sanders endorses War Criminal Clinton for US President; rejects opportunity for true leadership with ‘Emperor’s New Clothes’ OBVIOUS facts of Clinton election fraud, e-mail felonies, Wars of Aggression to embrace, bond, and join the criminals

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

“In my view, it’s easy to ‘boo’ but it’s harder to look your kids in the face living under a Donald Trump presidency!” ~ Bernie Sanders, July 26, 2016 speech at DNC

Bernie Sanders lied to the American public and world-wide victims of US empire by providing a false choice between Left and Right arms of one criminal political body of .01% oligarchs. The only rational, responsible, and legal response for Americans is to demand arrests of such oligarchs rather than vote them into power for ongoing Wars of Aggression and related crimes of empire. This article will explain, document, and prove these claims with Emperor’s New Clothes ease to point to obvious and objective facts anyone can see who cares to look.

Presidential candidate Trump's endorsement of War Crimes is equal reason to arrest him for incitement to murder (war-murder and/or genocide). One sentence of summary from detailed documentation:

Mourning And Resistance In Kashmir

In Kashmir, the killing days are here again. In 2010, Indian forces shot and killed more than 135 unarmed civilians. Nearly half of them were teenagers, and the youngest was eight years old. This year, using “non-lethal” pellets fired into the face at close range, Indian paramilitaries are blinding them as well. The death toll stands at 50. The number of those critically injured or blinded by the pellets is over 150, and the total number of the injured is in the thousands. The youngest victims this time are three- and four-year olds.

US public education: Bullshit to train stupefied work animals. Most ‘food’ is crap, campuses decrepit, students appropriately uninspired by bullshit (11 of 12)

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

Three related topics to academics that contribute to public education being bullshit:

So-called “food” served in most public schools is repulsive and not anything a rational and educated person would ever want to eat.
Most school campuses suffer from “deferred maintenance” that causes decrepit conditions that communicate profound problems to our children.
The entirety of academics, food, and facilities all produce uninspired children; appropriate to becoming work animals.

1: So-called “food”:

“Hungry children can’t learn. Malnourished children can’t think. We have to stop killing our kids with chemicals. We have to feed them real food… If we take one week off of war and diabetes costs, we can double the amount we spend to feed our children.” ~ Chef Ann Cooper on public education school lunches

In Signal to Military, Hillary Clinton Picks Senator Tim Kaine as Running Mate

In selecting Kaine, Clinton is making clear that she plans on running a right-wing, pro-war campaign targeted at winning over the military and sections of the Republican Party dissatisfied with Trump, and particularly with the Republican candidate’s attitude toward Russia. Clinton also wanted to repudiate any association with the issues of social inequality that motivated the widespread support for her main rival in the primaries, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.

Kaine is among the most hawkish figures among Senate Democrats. As governor of Virginia from 2006 to 2010, Kaine oversaw billions of dollars in cuts to the state budget. The state of Virginia is a major center for the military and defense industry, and is home to the Pentagon and the headquarters of the CIA.

Between 2009 and 2011, Kaine served as the head of the Democratic National Committee, the leadership body of the Democratic Party. He is close to Wall Street, having recently backed measures to deregulate banks.

The Class Inversion of American Politics Accelerates

Donald Trump’s Republicans are becoming the party of blue-collar white voters, as college-educated white voters slip away.

The reshaping of the two parties’ coalitions under the blast-force pressure of Donald Trump’s iconoclastic candidacy may reach unprecedented heights in 2016, the first polls released after the GOP convention suggest.

National surveys released on Monday by CBS and CNN/ORC show the gap between the preferences of whites with and without a college education in the 2016 presidential race soaring to a level unmatched in any recent election. In both surveys, Donald Trump has opened a commanding lead over Hillary Clinton among whites without a college degree. But even after Trump’s own convention, the two surveys show him running no better than even, or slightly behind, among whites with at least a four-year degree.

This sharp divergence intensifies a trend that I’ve called the “class inversion”—the shift since the 1960s of working-class whites from the Democratic Party to the Republican, and the parallel movement of more white-collar whites from the GOP to the Democrats since the 1980s.>>>

Bernie Sanders Has Lost Control of His Political Revolution

Sanders supporters continue to protest the Democratic convention, even as the Senator urges them to support Clinton

TIME: It was supposed to be the night the Democratic Party finally exorcised its demons. Instead, on a sultry, hot day in Philadelphia, the long-simmering disillusionment of Bernie Sanders supporters erupted into anger. And not even the Senator himself could calm them.

A day of protests, booing and open dissent on Monday at the Democratic convention threatened to derail the party’s moment in the spotlight, exposing the fault lines that have divided the Democrats throughout the contentious primary between Sanders and Hillary Clinton. Inside the DNC convention hall, Sanders’ delegates shouted “Bernie! Bernie!” booed Clinton surrogates and even briefly broke into the “Lock Her Up!” chant favored by Donald Trump supporters.

One thing became clear: Sanders, who has spent the past 15 months condemning a “rigged system” and lambasting Clinton’s Establishment credentials, has conjured a spirit of resentment that he can’t dispel.>>>>

SAS troops poised to EVACUATE Britons from Turkey amid fear of SECOND military coup

With fears rebels could be about to try to overthrow the government for a second time, which is likely to result in a Turkish civil war, troops have moved into neighbouring Cyprus and are preparing a rescue mission to save stranded Britons.

Defence chiefs have drawn up emergency plans and fully armed soldiers, together with members of the Special Forces Support Group, are ready to fly into areas popular with tourists and help families get home safely.

Hundreds of jets, helicopters and other aircraft will be drafted in to help the estimated 50,000 Brits flee the danger.

The troops will be cleared to open fire if local rebels threaten to intervene.

One senior defence source told the Daily Star Sunday: “Turkey is on the brink. If there is another coup attempt then civil war will follow. If that happens there will be a major international crisis.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but how is this different from an outright invasion of a sovereign country, unless the details of the evacuation are planned in concert with the Turkish government?!?

PA Man Arrested and Jailed for Flying a Flag Upside Down Gets $55,000

By Matt Agorist

A man from central Pennsylvania was kidnapped by police and deprived of his rights for doing nothing more than hanging an American flag upside down on his own property. Joshua Brubaker has since settled a civil rights lawsuit against the city for more than $55,000.

The Altoona Mirror reports Friday that supervisors in Allegheny Township, Blair County, have approved letting their insurance company pay the money to Joshua Brubaker.

In May of 2014, Brubaker said he was standing up for his American Indian heritage when he hung the upside down flag outside of his home with the letters AIM spray painted on it. AIM stands for American Indian Movement...

Clinton Opposition Outside Convention

Outside the Democratic convention, opposition to Clinton makes itself heard

PHILADELPHIA - Republicans who dislike Donald Trump were mostly discreet at last week's nominating convention. They grumbled in private conversations, expressed their unease through hand gestures, or jeered a procedural call by party brass.

It's noisier on the left.

The progressive brigade that refuses to march behind Hillary Clinton is loud, proud and in the streets at the Democratic convention. What was ostensibly a march for climate change Sunday included plenty of T-shirts for her primary opponent Bernie Sanders, for the Green party's Jill Stein, and little discernible trace of support for her.

In fact, there appeared to be a greater number of anti-Clinton protest signs like, "Not With Her," and "Never Hillary," in a visual demonstration of the challenge ahead for Clinton in uniting progressive voters.

That difficulty was underscored inside the official convention too. The party chair who supports Clinton was forced to resign, pushed out by the leak of emails showing an institutional bias during the primaries.>>>

13-minute video: Hillary Clinton a threat to all humanity; the only rational, legal, responsible citizen move is her arrest for OBVIOUS crimes in war, looting, lying (and don’t vote for Trump)

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

GlobalReasearchTV’s sharp 13-minute video to detail lie-started and illegal Wars of Aggression, threats for further wars, and serial lying:

Hillary Clinton belongs in prison for her principal roles in ongoing lie-started and illegal Wars of Aggression as a vocal US Senator, the top US representative with other nations as Secretary of State, and two-time presidential candidate.

These crimes (as well as running a rogue State Department with illegal and non-secure e-mails she lies about) are Emperor’s New Clothes obvious for anyone caring to look:

All US reasons for war on Afghanistan, Iraq, threats for war on Iran, and support for Israel’s war on Gaza were known to be false as they were told.
US armed attacks and ongoing wars are the Orwellian opposite of legal. After two world wars with US-led treaties, these are Wars of Aggression and Crimes Against Humanity, with the UK and Israel equally guilty with their “leaderships.”

“This latest revelation from WikiLeaks underscores how much the media is in bed with the DNC to circle the wagons around Hillary,” Stein told US Uncut in a phone interview. “The corruption and underhanded tactics and deception and conspiratorial efforts to silence Bernie and delegitimize him — I mean, welcome to the Green Party. This is what we’ve been up against forever.”

“The leaked DNC emails are the smoking gun that the Democratic establishment was rigging the game against Bernie the whole time,” Stein said in a press release issued by her campaign. “Instead of running the process impartially and letting the voters decide, top Democratic officials were doing all they could to ensure a Clinton victory, including collusion with journalists to present a pro-Clinton, anti-Sanders narrative.”

IN FIRST "EMERGENCY" DECREE, ERDOGAN SHUTS DOWN THOUSANDS OF HOSPITALS, SCHOOLS, CHARITIES

With the failed/staged Turkish coup quickly fading from memory and media attention, just as Erdogan likes it, and opposition from "western democracies" to a historic purge virtually non-existent aside from the occasional media soundbite, overnight Erdogan implemented his first decree since imposing a state of emergency in the country last week, and tightened his grip on Turkey by ordering the closure of thousands of private schools, charities and other institutions in his first decree since imposing a state of emergency after the failed military coup.

In his first "emergency powers" decree, published by the Anadolu state news agency, Erdogan authorised the closure of 1,043 private schools, 1,229 charities and foundations, 19 trade unions, 15 universities and 35 hospitals over suspected links to the Gulen movement. The government also announced it would seize the properties of all these schools, universities and private institutions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is painfully apparent that Turkey's currently leadership has not thought through the financial implications of these moves on their economy.

Watch for the Turkish lira to be degraded to "junk" status very soon.

But one thing is clear; in his occupation of the Incerlik base (with its US personnel and nuclear weapons), Erdogan has the current American government by a very sensitive portion of the human anatomy, and is squeezing it in a most painful way.

Under no circumstances can Obama deliver Gulen alive, because he will completely spill the beans on CIA activities in Turkey, even before they tickle him with a feather to get him to "confess"

Therefore, the only option is an extrajudicial assassination against him, most probably courtesy of the CIA.

Obama is no stranger at all to this process; after all, he has signed hundreds, if not thousands, of orders for extrajudicial assassinations during his administration.

One more, to attempt to salvage any possible rapprochement with Turkey, will be no big deal for him.

Self-expression for virtue and service with satisfaction.
After selfish desire is transcended, the character awakens on a new day with all the earned skills of practiced virtues.

Five-minute overview:

2016 planet Earth is the story of humanity trapped to live the same psychopathic control system over and over. Relatively unaware humans are like the background characters in Groundhog Day, operational work animals for the .01%. Relatively aware humans respond to this situation in three phases:

Manipulative control for selfish benefits (willfully operating within parasitic systems and/or joining the .01% psychopaths).

Donald Trump and the Revolt of the Proles

The Trump phenom is about economic insecurity. This isn’t about ideology, or racism, it’s about reality;

Western elites were shocked by Brexit, shocked that all their fear mongering and finger-wagging amounted to nothing. The same is true in the US, where the media’s daily attacks on Trump have failed to erode his base of support at all, in fact, they may have added to it.

That’s the reality that made Trump possible, and that’s what this election is about, economic insecurity.

Trump Enrages the War Party : How sweet is that!

Yet Trump has turned the tables on the War Party: it is they who are being put on the defensive by his relentless assault, and his willingness to say what most normal people are thinking. His disregard for the pieties of the Beltway, his contempt for the self-proclaimed “experts,” and his ability to mobilize the American people behind a foreign policy that puts them first, is the best thing that has happened to this country in the modern era.

Retired Lawman Challenges Corrupt Sitting Sheriff in Council, Idaho

Tom Watts is running for Sheriff in Adams County, Idaho, against Sheriff Ryan Zollman. Zollman employs and constantly defends deputies Brian Wood and Cody Roland, who shot and killed 62-year-old rancher Jack Yantis on the road in front of his ranch last November 1st. Watts is a lifelong lawman who never had a complaint filed against him. His campaign website states, in part, "I proudly served my community as a law enforcement officer for over 20 years in Nevada without ever having a citizen file a complaint against me. I have also worked private security for mining companies in that area. I moved to Adams County in 2012. It has been my pleasure to simply be a part of this community, and it was my intention to retire from law enforcement. I have been moved to run for this office by the serious issues facing our county, and our nation."

SAVAK Terrorism & US Multinationals

Kermit Roosevelt, the Mossadegh coup-master turned Northrop salesman, admitted in his memoirs that SAVAK was 100% created by the CIA and Mossad, the Israeli intelligence agency that acts as appendage of the CIA. For the next 20 years the CIA and SAVAK were joined at the hip when it came to matters of Persian Gulf security.

Three hundred fifty SAVAK agents were shuttled each year to CIA training facilities in McLean, Virginia, where they learned the finer arts of interrogation and torture. Top SAVAK brass were trained through the US Agency for International Development’s (USAID) Public Safety Program, until it was shut down in 1973 due to its reputation for turning out some of the world’s finest terrorists.

Erdogan Has Obama Over A Barrel

Turkey’s President Recip Tayyib Erdogan, fresh off putting down an inept military coup, looks set to accelerate his already speedy run toward autocratic control. Given Turkey’s strategic geopolitical position, there’s nothing the Obama Administration, entangled as it is with Turkey as an ally, will do about it.

And Erdogan knows that.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m not generally in favor of military putsches. But turning back one set of anti-democratic bullies doesn’t set Turkey on a path to expanded democracy. On the contrary, seeing as how Erdogan is seizing the opportunity throw a prosecutorial net over wide swathes of his opponents-something he was good at long before the coup-it looks like Turkey is soon to be run by a strongman of the non-military type. He is currently purging the education community of thousands of employees, all supposedly coup backers. You know, those math teachers who manned tanks during the coup attempt.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As I type this, the US/NATO base at Incirkik is in lockdown, and the electricity is turned off.

And it looks as though things will stay that way until the Turkish Imam Gullen, a CIA asset, is extradited from the US to Istanbul, per Erdogan's demand.

IF Obama does this, the US - and the world - will see that he blinked on this demand, so he is really in a hard place here.

So what would I imagine the outcome here would be?!?

Were I a betting person, I would almost imagine that Gullen is going to "get very depressed" and wind up "committing suicide".

Political assassinations are common enough in this country that I wouldn't put it beyond the reach of this Administration, to make sure that this "probably soon-dead" man can tell no tales.

Then, his body will be shipped back home; the method of death may well perhaps be even too exotic to be discovered.

Macedonia's Colorful Revolutionaries defy the state by splashing paint on government buildings and monuments

Macedonia's laws define vandalism as a misdemeanor which puts a limit on the jail time faced by participants in a political movement whose symbol is splashes of brightly colored paint.

The Macedonian police are notorious for their crackdowns on protest, and the Colorful Revolution's many anti-corruption demands include an end to police harassment of political opposition. To make their point, the opposition has splashed bright paint on national monuments and government buildings.

The Colorful Revolution has picked up steam, creating eye-catching reminders of its existence that persist even when the participants have been swept up by the police. Last week, an attempt by police to seize a van full of protesters' audio equipment had to be called off because massed protesters surrounded the police and chased them off, chanting "Freedom! Freedom!"

The Turkish Coup in Context: Redrawing the Map of the CIA Drug Trade

By Rusticus

It’s been four short days since the July 15, 2016 coup d’état (color revolution?) attempt in Turkey, and already, the open-source research community is well underway in digesting what’s just occurred. President Recep Erdogan was quick to place the blame at the feet of his long-time political opponent (and likely CIA asset), a multi-billionaire “refugee” hiding out in the woods of western Pennsylvania – cleric Fethullah Gülen. Gülen, in turn, pointed the finger back at Erdogan, suggesting that the coup was staged for the express intent of centralizing authority.

It is their purpose that Japan shall be stripped of all the islands in the Pacific which she has seized or occupied since the beginning of the first World War in 1914, and that all the territories Japan has stolen from the Chinese, such as Manchuria, Formosa, and the Pescadores, shall be restored to the Republic of China. Japan will also be expelled from all other territories which she has taken by violence and greed. The aforesaid three great powers, mindful of the enslavement of the people of Korea, are determined that in due course Korea shall become free and independent.”

Activists in Yerevan Build Barricade in Front of Police Cordon

The activists made a barricade from metal elements used for erecting fences by the police. The remaining space between them and the police was filled with private cars and garbage cans. Thus, the roads leading to the police building in which the hostage situation is still occurring are blocked by the police forces and the exit from the territory is under demonstrators' control.

On July 17, an armed group took several police officers hostage at a patrol police station in the capital's district of Erebuni. The hostage takers are demanding the release of Jirair Sefilian, an opposition politician and the founder of the New Armenia Public Salvation Front. Sefilian, who took part in the 1988-1994 Nagorno-Karabakh conflict with Azerbaijan, is accused of the illegal acquisition and possession of arms.

Ordinarily a dealer in witty aphorisms and upper-crust humor, Brooks now wrote a column entitled “Are We On the Path to National Ruin?” in which he speculated darkly about the possibility of fascism in America. “The crack of some abyss opened up for a moment by the end of last week,” he wrote. “It’s very easy to see this country on a nightmare trajectory.”

Spotlight: Turkey, U.S. walk tightrope over extradition of cleric Gulen

As a faction of the Turkish armed forces involved in the coup attempt was deemed as loyal to U.S.-based cleric Fethullah Gulen, Turkey firmly demands extradition of the cleric, which may sour bilateral ties, local experts said Monday.

Turkey officially designated Gulen's religious movement as a terrorist group and has repeatedly asked his extradition from the U.S., but the latter says solid evidence is needed to back any extradition request for his alleged leadership of a terrorist organization.

Ankara may question its friendship with Washington if the U.S. fails to meet Turkey's demand, Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said on Monday in a press conference after the first cabinet meeting following a failed coup attempt.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government, unwilling to capitulate publicly to a foreign demand of this kind, will most probably NOT extradite Gullen.

However, look for this guy to get "very, very depressed", and perhaps take a leisurely stroll in Fort Marcy Park, then "commit suicide".

The US government, under various administrations, has a long string of dead bodies going back decades; my bet would be on an extrajudicial assassination, carried out very covertly.

And let’s reflect upon three questions:

What does it mean that Language Arts professionals miss the point of language to connect with each other?
What kind of academic discipline is blind to living on an “animal farm” while claiming to “teach” the novels Animal Farm and 1984?

What The Hell Is Happening In Turkey?

By Brandon Turbeville

With Turkey now undergoing the largest military/governmental purge in modern history, the question of Turkey’s future in terms of its domestic stability and structure is in flux and the possibilities facing the world, especially Syria, in regards to any changes of Turkish foreign policy are shaky as well. But even as the question of Syria’s future remains, what about who initiated the coup? Who was behind it? Why was it launched? In other words, what the hell is happening in Turkey?

Unfortunately, there is not a clear answer to this question. There is, however, context into which we may place the situation for a better understanding of the possibilities and the potential directions of Turkey’s and, as a result, the Middle East’s future. Indeed, what is happening in Turkey will have reverberations that span across the globe in every direction...

Mike Flynn: ‘Americans Are Fed Up With the Bullshit’

Americans fed up with the bullshit they've been fed for many years. They want the truth.

Flynn: This is where I think the world has misread Donald Trump. He has no intention to step away without examining all relationships that we have. His intent is to relook at the way we are organized globally, where the US is sort of expected to be a global leader, but relook at these alliances and these charters that we are under to make sure that they are still viable for the 21st century. It doesn’t mean that President Trump comes into office and NATO goes away. But I would say that NATO as a political alliance does need to be relooked at in terms of everything — resourcing, capabilities.
