NYT: Protesters And Prosecutor Should Be Friends

Gurley, an unarmed black man, was shot in a Brooklyn public housing staircase and left to bleed to death in the arms of a friend. While Gurley’s killer, rookie Peter Liang, was indicted and eventually fired from the department, he managed to avoid jail time, thanks in large part to Thompson. The Times, which somehow didn’t mention the Gurley family as it pedantically refuted the anger of a “vocal band of critics,” defended Thompson:

IT IS FAIR AND RIGHT TO QUESTION HOW MR. THOMPSON, AND PROSECUTORS EVERYWHERE, MAKE THEIR DECISIONS. BUT HIS OVERALL RECORD AND REFORM EFFORTS SHOW A FAR GREATER AWARENESS OF THE JUSTICE SYSTEM’S PROBLEMS THAN MANY IN HIS POSITION. PEOPLE WHO WANT A MORE JUST SYSTEM SHOULD SEE HIM AS AN ALLY.

Hammering For Peace

Last winter, at the Voices home/office in Chicago, we welcomed two friends who were in town for a Mennonite church gathering focused on the symbol of beating swords into plowshares. Their project embraces a vision from the biblical “Book of Isaiah” which longs for the day when “they shall beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they study war anymore.” Our friends quite literally enact this vision. They use saws to cut guns and rifles in half and then hammer on the broken weapons, turning them into useful tools for gardening and light construction.

A Year Ago, I Crossed The DMZ In Korea. Here’s Why

One year ago, I led a group of 30 women from 15 countries on a journey across the De-Militarized Zone (DMZ) from North to South Korea.

On May 24, International Women’s Day for Peace and Disarmament, we crossed the world’s most militarized border calling for the reunification of Korean families divided by conflict and a peace treaty to end the Korean War. Our delegation included two Nobel Peace Prize laureates, a retired U.S. army colonel, and America’s most revered feminist, Gloria Steinem.

Monsanto’s Cotton Rejected Again: Burkina Faso Brings Back Indigenous Varieties

By Christina Sarich

Monsanto has been trying to take over Africa’s cotton for decades with their patented, genetically modified (GM) seed. Not without irony, Burkina Faso is just one of the African countries that has been wary of any of Monsanto’s GM seed, adding to the credo, ‘better off dead, than GM fed,’ when it came to accepting U.S. food aid that was primarily genetically altered...

Standing Up To Multinational Big-Ag: Nepal, Monsanto, and USAID

By Tony Cartalucci

Throughout history, controlling India was the key to controlling Nepal. British control over the landlocked nation was an extension of its control over India itself. Today, imperialism is far from a distant memory. It did not go “extinct,” rather, it merely “evolved.” Today, imperialism looks like national and international “aid programs” which are used as fronts and vectors for corporate special interests...

The Masses are Waking up, Nuit Debout Gatherings Spreading in Europe


Today on The Janssen Report: people are increasingly dissatisfied with the corruption and anti-social political decision-making in Europe. Nuit Debout is a new phenomenon that started in Paris on March 31st and is currently spreading to multiple countries (and numerous cities) in Europe. People gathering to discuss different topics on economics, politics and other matters they find of importance.
The corporate mainstream media hardly reports on it and if they do, they cover mostly the negative aspects (such as rioting).
I think it's a very positive sign of the masses waking up to the harsh reality of fascism and economic slavery that we are facing.

Colorado’s Tenacious Anti-Fracking Movement Explores “Last-Ditch Options”

By Diedre Fulton

Left with few options for stopping the scourge of oil and gas drilling in their state, Colorado residents are turning to creative forms of resistance in what the Denver Post calls “a last-ditch push for protection” against fracking.

The Colorado Supreme Court ruled in early May that state rules promoting oil and gas development trump local attempts to restrict or ban drilling near homes and schools. As such, residents who live near proposed drilling sites “said they see few options” for stopping new projects...

MAD ABOUT RIGGED ELECTIONS? MAINSTREAM MEDIA SAYS "YOU" ARE THE PROBLEM

It would be nice if Eichenwald’s hit piece were as much a joke as it comes across, but clearly he’s missed the point — and the vast movement supporting not only Sanders, but electoral justice. Worse, he didn’t stop there:

“Signs are emerging that the Sanders campaign is transmogrifying into the type of movement through which tyrants are born.

“The ugly was on display” at the aforementioned Nevada convention, Eichenwald adds, “where Hillary Clinton won more delegates than Sanders.”

No kidding. That would be precisely the issue that “cult” expressed fury about — Clinton managed to put yet another state under her belt under highly questionable circumstances. In fact, suspect happenings at nearly every primary and caucus so far oddly favor the former secretary of state — and Nevada stood as further testament to why voters are practically up in arms over what appears to be electoral favoritism.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Clinton is obsessed with obtaining the power of the oval office, and by any means necessary; she, and the people around her, who understand the perks of power, are hell-bent to obtain it, and by any means necessary.

She and her supporters have the morals of a dead tree-stump, and have had their consciences collectively, and thoroughly, removed.

It is pretty easy to predict the ultimate outcomes of a Clinton presidency; more wars; the return of the draft; more income inequality (as she is owned, body and soul, by Wall Street and the military industrial and pharmaceutical industries); more job offshoring and outsourcing, leaving more Americans without meaningful jobs; and a complete collapse of the American economic system.

And don't get me wrong here; I would LOVE to see a woman as President; just, please, Lord, not THIS woman!!

"OUR WATER, OUR FUTURE": VOTERS IN OREGON DEFEAT NESTLÉ'S ATTEMPT TO PRIVATIZE THEIR WATER

In Hood River County, Oregon, voters recently passed a precedent-setting ballot initiative that will protect the community's water from industrial bottling operations. Organizers say they built a bipartisan campaign, resulting in nearly 70 percent of voters supporting the ban on commercial bottling in the county.

Blue yard signs bearing the words "Yes on 14-55: Our Water, Our Future" dotted lawns throughout Hood River County, Oregon, in the run-up to the primary election held on May 17. Just as many of these signs appeared to share a lawn with a Cruz or Trump yard sign as with a Clinton or Sanders sign.

The issue that brought conservatives and progressives together in this way was clear-cut: keeping Nestlé Waters North America from building a water bottling plant and extracting over 118 million gallons annually from a spring in a small, rural community 45 miles east of Portland.

"WE NEEDED TO ACT. IT WAS OUR MOMENT."

Maui Completely Stops Spraying Roundup, Switches to Organic Herbicides

All purchases of the glyphosate-based, carcinogenic weed killer have been halted, according to Maui Mama. What’s more, the department is about to change the signs on all of their spray trucks to say “Certified Organic Herbicide.”

Beyond Pesticides has also agreed to teach county workers how to make the switch from the health-damaging Roundup chemical applications to a non-toxic solution, FREE OF CHARGE. The county of Maui has yet to take the offer to heart, but with some world-wide support, they could be gently urged to do so...

Five weeks into a strike by nearly 40,000 workers, the Obama administration is pushing Verizon and the strikers to reach a deal. Strikers marched on the White House on Thursday, backed by other unions in a show of solidarity.

The strike began on April 13 with the participation of between 36,000 and 39,000 members of the Communications Workers of America (CWA) and International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), most of whom work on Verizon’s wireline services along the East Coast. The strikers say that a company making $1.8 billion in profits a month should not be looking to cut back on pensions, benefits, and pay.

HOUSE REPUBLICANS RIG HEARING TO BLOCK CONSUMERS FROM GOING TO COURT

The ink was barely dry on a proposal by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) to restore the rights of banking customers to take their grievances into a court of law instead of a system of forced arbitration, when House Republicans threw together a hearing yesterday to scaremonger over make-believe evils of the proposal. The hearing was convened by the Republican-controlled Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit Subcommittee of the House Financial Services Committee and not-so-subtly titled “Examining the CFPB’s Proposed Rulemaking on Arbitration: Is it in the Public Interest and for the Protection of Consumers?”

The American Law Litigation Daily called the hearing “seriously lopsided.” ValueWalk called it “skewed.” We’re calling it brazenly rigged.

OK, here is the reality of our alleged "Congressional Representatives"; they only represent the corporations which fund their campaigns, and We the People can simply go to hell.

ICELAND'S BIGGEST POLITICAL PARTY IS NOW THE "PIRATE PARTY"

Iceland’s anti-establishment Pirate Party continues to lead nationwide polls as the most popular choice for the next elections. The party — whose policies include internet freedom, drug decriminalisation, and open democracy — has consistently led the polls for the last year and, as a result, has secured more funding than any of its rivals. The 2008 financial crisis hit Iceland hard. The following year, the krona was devalued by around 50%, unemployment doubled, and capital controls were introduce. Miraculously, the country rose from the ashes to become one of Europe’s top performers in terms of growth. More recently, the political establishment has been in turmoil since three government ministers were implicated in the global Panama Papers scandal.

Those Who Dwell Amongst The Rocks: An Extremely Brief History Of The Tunisian Revolution

Tunisia has received honorable mention in the international press as one of the few ‘’success stories’’ of the Arab spring. Yet it seems the major conflict of interest that has divided Tunisia, is between the Western interests who hoped to adopt Arab Spring revolutions, and the actual intentions, dreams and immense optimism of the Tunisian people, and particularly of the young.

Officials from the Communications Workers of America (CWA) in Brooklyn called the police to prevent striking workers from speaking to reporters from the World Socialist Web Site Friday. The effort by the CWA to silence its critics and intimidate militant workers occurred just days after a New York Police Department lieutenant, driving a van load of scabs, ran down a striking Verizon worker on a picket line in the neighboring borough of Queens.

"Seven Dead Babies a Day": Economic Collapse Has Turned Venezuelan Hospitals into the Worst Horror Film You Can Imagine

Here's how well socialism works.

Because there's no money for supplies like clean linens, soap, toilet paper, medical supplies like disposable gloves or even basics like a clean sheet of paper, let alone medicines such as intravenous solutions and antibiotics, and because the country is suffering rolling blackouts and money-saving government-imposed "holidays" that only leave people with two days of reliable electricity a week, the ill and wounded including newborn babies are dying left and right in Venezuela's crippled hospitals.

Here are just a few of the horrifying highlights.

Apocalypse programming and “Knowing” the end of days

The many end of the world scenarios we’ve had pumped into us from birth, from ducking under our primary school desks in atom bomb drills to apocalyptic religion, books and movies, all have a targeted effect. It’s not just about sensationalism and sales with all the media’s putting into this. They’re playing with very deep human dynamics.

Sure, the stock market can function as such an indicator. It is such an indicator when the rising stock market reflects a dynamic, capitalist economy where new industries and companies are rising to the top and improving standards of living for the populace.

The California Voter Suppression Has Started – Mail In Ballots

My friend who is registered No preference in California got his official ballot in the mail. There was no choice to vote for Bernie Sanders on the ballot!

I called the SOS in Sac. County and was told you have to be registered with a party to vote. I told her this is incorrect and the SOS website says you can vote for any Demarcate or Republican registered as no preference.

She then changed her tone and said No party preference voters have to fill out a request for a crossover ballot given on the sample ballots that are mailed out.

California voters have until May 31st to request a crossover ballot for the Dem party in Sacramento County (this deadline may differ from county to county). OR your mail in ballot will not count.

The Rise of Big Surveillance: How Oakland Pushed Back and Won!

The Domain Awareness Center (DAC) was a planned surveillance hub which aimed to integrate public and private cameras and sensors all over the City of Oakland into one $11,000,000 mass surveillance system. After mounting opposition to the DAC in 2013 and 2014, catalyzed by the Oakland Privacy Working Group, the Oakland City Council voted on March 4, 2014 to restrict the DAC to operate solely within the Port of Oakland. It also removed citywide ShotSpotter (a gunshot detection system theoretically capable of overhearing conversations) and city traffic cameras from the system, and required any further expansion or information-sharing decisions to come before the Council for approval. Integrated, mass surveillance is highly controversial, and not only in Oakland: many US cities, and other cities worldwide, watched closely to see Oakland’s example play out.

Some how hours before the Nevada Democratic Convention vote actually happened, the final result of the vote were somehow reported by the AP via local Nevada news station.

How does a news outlet report final vote results hours before the actual vote occurs?

Adding to the scandal, the official vote has Hillary Clinton winning by 31 votes, but after the vote was conducted a petition was presented with the signature of 64 Bernie Sander supporters saying they were suppressed from being allowed to vote. The response to the petition was to tell the voters to present their complaint at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

BUNDY RANCH PPOLITICAL PRISONER DROPS BOMBSHELL FROM JAIL: US GOVERNMENT WILL PANIC WHEN THIS COMES OUT

Reporter and political prisoner Pete Santilli of The Pete Santilli Show dropped a bombshell from jail earlier this week. He claims that the information below, once it comes out in the open in court, will have the US government in a panic.

“It is documented and we have the documentation,” he continued. “We will be going through the court system appropriately, but the entire Bundy Ranch debacle and what Cliven Bundy said on that stage to that Sheriff… unfortunately, these buffoon people that the US government’s US Attorney’s Office actually put on the record that Nevada, part of the Hidalgo Treaty and all this stuff is absolute lunacy that they are lining us all up about an incident that took place in Clark County Nevada that has never been part of federal lands since 1866.”

BREAKING: 12 States Stand Up Against Obama’s Unlawful Trans Bathroom Decree

Barack Obama went way too far with his unconstitutional overreach in attempting to require “transgender-compliant” restrooms, showers and locker rooms in all public places across America.

And the massive backlash is spreading fast. So far 12 states have condemned Obama’s outrageous decree.

Now other states have jumped on board, defending North Carolina and the state’s rights to set these guidelines themselves without federal interference. At the very least, they want Congress to establish guidelines and not the Executive Branch.

Real Change Only Comes When Millions Unite and Fight Back

Why is it in America we massive level of wealth and income inequality? Why is it that I am working longer hours at lower wages and the wealth is going to the top 1%? Why is it that middle class has been disappearing for over 30 years? Why are we the only major country on earth that doesn't provide paid family and medical leave? That doesn't provide healthcare for all people? Why do we have the highest rate of childhood poverty in the world? Why are out inner cities and infrastructure throughout this country collapsing?

Why? People are beginning to catch on. Once you start asking those questions and once you get involved politically what seems so hard yesterday will not be so hard tomorrow.

The same thing with all of the other struggles for workers rights, for civil rights, for women's rights , for gay rights... what we are fighting for a country and a government that works for all of us and not just the one 1%.

‘Many are invited; few accept’: Is the awakened’s role pointing to psychopathic .01% Empire to present a basic choice: serve Divine Justice OR be served to face Divine Justice?

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

The story of Matthew 22:1-14 is Jesus stating that the choice for heaven is just this easy: accept the invitation.

To make this perfectly clear, the parable contrasts what not to do: don’t attack the messengers (more here).

The story ends with the famous line:

“Many are invited; but few accept.”

The story of Earth 2016 includes messengers for “heaven on Earth” (and here) technical solutions available here and now for all imaginable problems. Our history of inviting humans to accept this invitation seems to include the same punchline: “Many are invited; but few accept.”

But perhaps that is our mission, despite the ridiculous Emperor’s New Clothes facts in ~100 crucial areas for anyone caring to look, including:

Unlawful and lie-began wars.

Bernie: #FreeCollege Should Be A Right - We Need A Revolution

Bernie Sanders explains that providing free public college is not a radical idea. Instead it is an idea whose time will come and it is our job to make it come sooner rather than later.

But how will it be paid for? A few years ago Wall Street drove this country to the worse economic recession since the great depression.

Wall street is doing just fine today and taxing their speculation that caused the Financial Collapse of #2008 would bring in more than enough money to provide free public college to everyone and help massively reduce current student debt.

Ontario Proposes Forced Reeducation For Parents Who Choose To Not Vaccinate Their Children

When it comes to regulatory tyranny, Canada and the United States have been one-upping each other for some time.

Ontario, Canada has a new proposal…

68 Years of the Palestinian Ongoing Nakba !

Nakba, in Arabic, simply means, Catastrophe, or Tragedy; for Palestinians, it is the most tragic nightmare to happen to a whole nation in modern history.

The irony is that while Palestinian commemorating the 68th anniversary of their Catastrophe, the Palestinian exodus, Israelis celebrate what they call “independence day”.

After 68 years of Nakba this is a reminder to the Free and Democratic World, that there will be no peace in this region if Palestinian Nakba continues, and if this conflict will not have a just end.

First Oregon standoff defendant pleads guilty

Scott Willingham, who was part of the security team during the takeover of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, pleaded guilty Thursday to stealing government property.

Willingham was accused of taking or converting government-owned cameras for his own use. He faced two counts of theft of government property but entered a guilty plea in federal court in Portland to one count. The other was dismissed.

Willingham, 49, was with occupation spokesman Robert "LaVoy" Finicum on Jan. 15 when Finicum took down surveillance cameras at a substation six miles from Burns.

Under a plea agreement, he's expected to face six months in prison followed by two years of supervised release. He's agreed to undergo a mental health evaluation and spend up to 120 days at a residential re-entry program or treatment center.

THE PENTAGON IS BUILDING A ‘SELF-AWARE’ KILLER ROBOT ARMY FUELED BY SOCIAL MEDIA

Official US defence and NATO documents confirm that autonomous weapon systems will kill targets, including civilians, based on tweets, blogs and Instagram

An unclassified 2016 Department of Defense (DoD) document, the Human Systems Roadmap Review, reveals that the US military plans to create artificially intelligent (AI) autonomous weapon systems, which will use predictive social media analytics to make decisions on lethal force with minimal human involvement. Despite official insistence that humans will retain a “meaningful” degree of control over autonomous weapon systems, this and other Pentagon documents dated from 2015 to 2016 confirm that US military planners are already developing technologies designed to enable swarms of “self-aware” interconnected robots to design and execute kill operations against robot-selected targets.

Straight into the paper shredder: Texas responds to Obama’s transgender bathroom mandate

The Obama administration just released a mandate on Friday forcing all educators to allow students use bathrooms that correspond to their gender identity rather than their biological sex. The mandate has been extremely controversial, affecting all public schools and most colleges and universities that are federally funded.

“I got news for President Barack Obama,” Port Neches-Groves (Texas) Superintendent Rodney Canvass told 12News. “He ain’t my President and he can’t tell me what to do. That letter is going straight to the paper shredder. I have 5 daughters myself and I have 2,500 girls in my protection. Their moms and dads expect me to protect them. And that is what I am going to do. Now I don’t want them bullied… but there are accommodations that can be made short of this. He is destroying the very fiber of this country. He is not a leader. He is a failure.”

Lawsuits Challenge Tech Giants Large-Scale Biometric Collection

The lawsuit could be a massive step toward privacy rights in the twenty first century by keeping corporations from snatching up more of our personal data.

Under Illinois’ Biometric Information Privacy Act, nobody in the state of Illinois is allowed to collect biometric identifiers whether they be fingerprints, face prints, or DNA, without a person’s explicit consent...

On the Misuse Anti-Semitism - An Analysis by Lawrence Davidson

The Zionists have declared that there is no difference between the State of Israel and the worldwide community of Jews and therefore, if you are opposed to Israel you are anti-Semitic. This identification of Israel and the Jews en masse is historically, demographically, and certainly religiously false. But no matter, the Zionists shout this redefinition loudly and endlessly. And, by backing their claim with political pressure and a lot of money, they have managed to get it accepted in some Western political circles. This, then, is what constitutes the misuse for political purposes of a dangerous racial prejudice.

Country Artist Debuts New Song Opposing War In Syria, Iran, Iraq

By Brandon Turbeville

Previous Material Decries Drug War, Praises Psychedelics

When Sturgill Simpson took the stage on the Daily Show to debut his song “Call To Arms” to a national television audience, the message was clear – “Something new is happening in country music.” In fact, it was clear that something is changing in music altogether. Simpson is not your average artist, much less your average country artist. From his very first album, Hightop Mountain and especially his second, Metamodern Sounds in Country Music, Simpson stayed far away from the sanitized hayseed “bro-country” of hardly believable pickup trucks, dirt roads, and fishin’ that Nashville pop country radio has shoved down the throats of listeners for years...
