Central Bankers Are Choking the Economy

When will central bankers conclude that it’s their own medicine that is actually making the economy sick? They will not make that connection until they succeed in killing the patient…and even then they may continue to administer the same toxic medicine to a corpse. The political pressure is just too great to ever admit their mistakes, so they repeat them indefinitely.

Open Letter Of Aleppo Doctors Is Easily Torn Apart – Bottom Of The Barrel Propaganda

By Brandon Turbeville

In 2016, we have become accustomed to relatively childish and easily deconstructed propaganda narratives that are circulated by the U.S. State Department and its mainstream media mouthpieces in order to discredit the Syrian government and drum up support for a NATO-led war on the secular government of Bashar al-Assad.

From scares related to chemical weapons (later demonstrated to be the work of NATO’s terrorists), unproven and largely discredited claims that Assad is “killing his own people” or even that Assad is “supporting ISIS” has become the order of the day in American media. Recently, however, the State Department, office of origin of the “Ghaddafi is handing out Viagra to rapists” propaganda line, has issued yet another pathetic propaganda ploy against the Syrian government – an alleged letter written by alleged doctors alleging that the Syrian military is encircling Aleppo in order to allegedly kill civilians.

US DEFENSE FIRMS PROFIT BY SAUDI ARABIA’S SLAUGHTER OF YEMEN

It is not secret that Saudi Arabia has been carrying out ghastly war crimes on the people of Yemen using US weapons and support. Despite the US’ endless (and largely hypocritical) complaining about civilian deaths in Syria, the Saudis have deployed unprecedented violence on civilians in Yemen with no audible opposition from the US. One of the US weapons making an appearance in Yemen are widely banned cluster bombs, specifically the CBU-105 Sensor Fuzed Weapon from Textron Systems of Wilmington, Massachusetts. The bombs are not only lethal upon initial use but often the parts of the bomb do not explode as planned and spontaneously detonate later or by accident when scavengers stumble upon them while looking for scrap metal.

DALLAS PD ASKS ATTORNEY GENERAL FOR PERMISSION TO WITHHOLD 'EMBARRASSING' DOCUMENTS ABOUT ITS BOMB ROBOT

The unprecedented deployment of a bomb-defusing robot by Dallas police to kill an armed suspect raised several questions. While these robots have sometimes acted as part of a negotiation team in the past, no police department had previously rigged one up with an explosive device to take a suspect out. One question that remains unanswered is whether this use of the Dallas PD's robot violated its own policies. Gawker's Andy Cush filed a public records request for PD policies on using robots to kill and discovered Dallas law enforcement was basically making things up as it went along.

US Nuclear Weapons At Risk of Seizure in Turkey

Dozens of US nuclear weapons stored at a Turkish air base near Syria are at risk of being captured by “terrorists or other hostile forces”, a Washington think tank said on Monday.

The US has an estimated 50 nuclear bombs at Incirlik in southern Turkey, 110km from the border with Syria.
The base’s Turkish commander was arrested on suspicion of complicity in last month’s coup plot.

“Whether the US could have maintained control of the weapons in the event of a protracted civil conflict in Turkey is an unanswerable question,” said Monday’s report from the Stimson Center, a nonpartisan think tank working to promote peace.

Incirlik is a vital base for the US-led coalition fighting the Islamic State (IS) group in Iraq and Syria, giving drones and warplanes fast access to IS targets.

“From a security point of view, it’s a roll of the dice to continue to have approximately 50 of America’s nuclear weapons stationed at Incirlik,” report co-author Laicie Heeley said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And hey, it wouldn't even have to be a coup ultimately commandeering these weapons; it could well be the Turkish government itself!!

With such an improvement in Turkish/Russian relations in the last week, who knows?!? Turkey may well pivot to Russia, declare itself a BRICs nation, and tell NATO to just vanish, permanently.

Israel decides no criminal charges for police who seized Palestinian girl's bicycle

One of the officers was suspended from the force after the incident late last month, documented by a B'tselem video camera. The footage showed two border policemen chasing a Palestinian girl, eight-year-old Anwar Burqan, of Hebron's al-Ibrahimi Street, as she rode a bicycle.

It showed one of the officers picking up the bicycle and tossing it into the bushes.

Large swaths of al-Ibrahimi St. are closed to Palestinian traffic. In their defense, the officers told investigators the girl's bicycle was confiscated because she was riding in a part of the street closed to Palestinians and they wanted to protect her.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, let me get this straight: these officers wanted to "protect" this 8 year old child....by throwing away and ruining her bicycle?!?

WOW, it really takes MANLY MEN to do that.

But hey, that's Israel in the 21st century; the most wretchedly apartheid, self-proclaimed theocracy in this world, AND... with nuclear weapons!!

DOCUMENTS CONFIRM CIA CENSORSHIP OF GUANTÁNAMO TRIALS

IN JANUARY 2013, during the military trial of five men accused of plotting the 9/11 attacks, a defense lawyer was discussing a motion relating to the CIA’s black-site program, when a mysterious entity cut the audio feed to the gallery. A red light began to glow and spin. Someone had triggered the courtroom’s censorship system.

The system was believed to be under the control of the judge, Col. James Pohl. In this case, it wasn’t.

Later, Pohl said the censorship was the work of an “OCA,” short for “Original Classification Authority.” In the future, he said, no external body would be permitted to unilaterally censor what was happening in his courtroom.

Many have speculated that Pohl’s “OCA” is in fact the CIA. That speculation is now confirmed with the release of three new documents by The Intercept. The documents show the evolution of secret rules governing what is and is not allowed to be discussed before the military court at Guantánamo.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why in the name of heaven is the US military torturing when they know that the tortured person will say anything his torturers want him to say to get the torture to stop?!?

Because this wasn't about what the tortured had done or not done; it was about eliciting confessions with which to justify the continued use torture.

I would like to politely remind our military and civilian leadership that when we, as a country, torture, or outsource torture, we demonstrate to the world that Americans are complete, abysmal hypocrites when it comes human rights, democracy, and the moral treatment of prisoners of war.

And I would also like to politely remind our military and civilian leadership that when we, as a country, torture, or outsource torture, this gives carte blanche for foreign countries which really don't like the American government that much, to torture our civilian and military personnel.

Please do take a moment to reflect on that, won't you?!?

U.N. Peacekeepers, U.S. Embassy Stand Down As American Aid Workers Beaten, Raped In Sudan

NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — The soldier pointed his AK-47 at the female aid worker and gave her a choice.

“Either you have sex with me, or we make every man here rape you and then we shoot you in the head,” she remembers him saying.

She didn’t really have a choice. By the end of the evening, she had been raped by 15 South Sudanese soldiers.

On July 11, South Sudanese troops, fresh from winning a battle in the capital, Juba, over opposition forces, went on a nearly four-hour rampage through a residential compound popular with foreigners, in one of the worst targeted attacks on aid workers in South Sudan’s three-year civil war. They shot dead a local journalist while forcing the foreigners to watch, raped several foreign women, singled out Americans, beat and robbed people and carried out mock executions, several witnesses told The Associated Press.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What the hell is wrong with UN personnel if they cannot protect people from these atrocities?!?

OR DO THEY EVEN CARE?!?

Dr. Ban Ki Moon gets wined and dined all over the planet, at various fetes, but when it comes to enforcing the effectiveness of UN forces under these circumstances, he is absolutely, utterly useless, and should be immediately sacked.

Unless, and until, the UN gets a Secretary General who is willing to put his discipline and energy where his mouth is, incidents like this will just keep occurring.

Putin deploys Russia’s most advanced air-defence missiles in Crimea as alarm grows war is imminent

The European Union said there was no independent confirmation of claims that Ukrainian agents had killed two Russian servicemen in Crimea. Putin pledged a “very serious” response as he blamed Kiev for pursuing “terror” activities. The 28-member bloc called on both sides to refrain from intensifying what has led to the worst diplomatic standoff between the two countries since a 2015 truce eased hostilities in Ukraine’s separatist conflict. Germany said that Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier will meet his Russian counterpart, Sergei Lavrov, next week in Russia.

“We reiterate our condemnation and non-recognition of the illegal annexation of Crimea,” European Commission spokesman Alexandre Polack said in Brussels on Friday. “There has been neither concrete evidence provided by Russia sustaining its claim nor any independent confirmation of the claims made by Russian authorities.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, the EU, as evidenced by the statement by their spokesperson, Polack, is still pursuing the narrative that somehow, Russia "annexed" Crimea.

This absolutely did not happen.

In 2014 when Yanukovich got thrown under the proverbial bus by the US, the EU, and NATO, and Poroshenko got "anointed" to the position of President, the Crimean people understood, without question, that there was no longer any legitimate government in Kiev.

Then, Crimea had a free and fair referendum, asking the Crimean people if they wanted to stay with Ukraine, or ask to become a part of the Russian Federation; they overwhelmingly voted to accept the latter. The referendum was presented to the Russian Federation, which accepted Crimea as a member at that time.

Russia has done absolutely nothing wrong here; and a short memo to EU Spokesperson Polack; the "big lie" doesn't work in this part of the 21st century. Someone at the EU should have sent you the memo on that!!

Obamacare Sticker Shock: Average 2017 Premium Surges 24%

The reference, of course, was to the state by state surge in proposed 2017 Obamacare premiums, contrasted with what the government contends is a modest 1.0% inflation rate.

Now, courtesy of a new study by independent analyst Charles Gaba - who has crunched the numbers for insurers participating in the ACA exchanges in all 50 states - we can also calculate what the average Obamacare premium increase across the entire US will be: using proposed and approved rate increase requests, the average Obamacare premium is expected to surge by a whopping 24% this year.

THIS IS HOW PRIVATE PRISON COMPANIES MAKE MILLIONS EVEN WHEN CRIME RATES FALL

Occupancy requirements, as it turns out, are common practice within the private prison industry. A new report by In the Public Interest, an anti-privatization group, reviewed 62 contracts for private prisons operating around the country at the local and state level. In the Public Interest found that 41 of those contracts included occupancy requirements mandating that local or state government keep those facilities between 80 and 100 percent full. In other words, whether crime is rising or falling, the state must keep those beds full. (The report was funded by grants from the Open Society Institute and Public Welfare, according to a spokesman.)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Private prisons have had a history of betting on political candidates financially to ultimately fatten their own coffers.

IF you have not seen it, please watch Michael Moore's "Who Do We invade Next?!?", even if you are not a fan of his work.

There is one segment where he goes to a men's prison in Norway; and what he discovers is nothing less than amazing. These people are treated kindly, and as though they have a future which is not criminal. Their environments are clean and comfortable. As reported at businessinsider.com in December of 2014:

In Norway, fewer than 4,000 of the country's 5 million people were behind bars as of August 2014. That makes Norway's incarceration rate just 75 per 100,000 people, compared to 707 people for every 100,000 people in the US. On top of that, when criminals in Norway leave prison, they stay out. It has one of the lowest recidivism rates in the world at 20%. The US has one of the highest: 76.6% of prisoners are re-arrested within five years. Norway also has a relatively low level of crime compared to the US, according to the Bureau of Diplomatic Security. The majority of crimes reported to police there are theft-related incidents, and violent crime is mostly confined to areas with drug trafficking and gang problems. Based on that information, it's safe to assume Norway's criminal justice system is doing something right. Few citizens there go to prison, and those who do usually go only once. So how does Norway accomplish this feat? The country relies on a concept called "restorative justice," which aims to repair the harm caused by crime rather than punish people. This system focuses on rehabilitating prisoners.

The us penal system is stupid, brutish, and counterproductive in the extreme, and it is engineered to be so, in order to hold on to it's huge budgets; the private prison system is even more so, because recidivism translates into more bucks for shareholders.

What is wrong with this picture?!?

SOROS HACK EXPOSES PLOT BEHIND REFUGEE CRISIS, HIS MEDIA CONTROL, CASH FOR “SOCIAL JUSTICE”

Leaked files from billionaire globalist George Soros’ Open Society Foundation two days ago have exposed several startling machinations about the organization — including flagrant schemes to manipulate the media, influence international immigration policy, and cash designated for social justice initiatives.

Soros has been outed previously for pulling political strings in Ukraine, but as one memo revealed in the massive DCLeaks cache shows, the globalist also sought direct manipulation of Western media to align with that political agenda.

Titled the “Ukraine Media Project,” the memo’s authors admit that “this isn’t proper independent journalism and we may damage our credibility with journalists,” but that “journalists may produce stories that have no relevance for the narrative we seek to inform or stories that are counterproductive (enforcing narratives of fascism, etc.)”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why am I not surprised at this man's actions?!?

And OSF labeling the immigration crisis as "the new normal"?!?

You see, it is never the" new normal" for those behind gates, walls, and brigades of security personnel; the monied are, of course, completely insulated from the chaos this brings.

It is only supposed to be "the new normal" for the rest of the people who have to put up with it, including the ancillary crime, gangs, and drugs which come with this crisis.

OF COURSE, the US could stop the wars which have generated this immigration chaos; but that...would be logical.

SHERIFF DAVID CLARKE: ‘STOP TRYING TO FIX THE POLICE, FIX THE GHETTO’

“People have to find a more socially acceptable way to deal with their frustration, their anger and resentment,” Sheriff Clarke said, adding the “war on police” mentality was a “political construct” that had been implemented by the left for a political end.

“Same thing, same model, same subversive groups involved with different names now, different generation of course – as all those folks and the students for a Democratic society got old,” Clarke said.

Here are a few excerpts from Sheriff Clarke’s insightful press conference:

“Police use of force serves as an igniter — there’s no doubt — but to an already volatile mix of urban pathologies, failed urban policy that exacerbates inescapable poverty, failing public schools, inadequate parenting. Father-absent homes — we all know when fathers are not around to shape the behavior of young boys, they often times grow up to be unmanageable misfits that police have to deal with in an aggressive fashion.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In listening and watching the people who were rioting, I had to shake my head, and ask, "Where were the parents of these people while they were growing up?!?

Did they not understand that without the ability to speak and write a standard English, that their kids were doomed to never find decent, well paying jobs?!?

And what about the abject failure of their school system?!? Every school administrator and teacher in that district of Milwaukee should be immediately canned, the teacher's union (if it exists) be scrapped in favor of a teachers who can really teach, using a performance-based curriculum which measures a teacher's worth to the district by the level of comprehension of material presented, but not "teaching to the test", which has been enshrined by Common Core.

With love and structure, kids can - and will - learn.

Remember the great film, "Stand and Deliver"?!?

This was based on a true story, where a math teacher in East LA was tired of being told that his kids "couldn't really do math", and had them compete at such a high level that the district accused him of "cheating" to get scores as high as those kids did.

When they were re-tested, with monitors in their room, they tested just as high - if not higher - than they did the first timed.

Milwaukee needs an ARMY of teachers like this, who get well compensated for what they do.

PARENTS WHO CAN'T PAY THE BILL FOR KIDS' INCARCERATION CAN STILL GO BANKRUPT, A US COURT RULES

When Maria Rivera got a bill from Orange County for her young son's year in juvenile detention, she sold her house to pay for it, but ended up short, and the county got a court order for another $10K to pay the remainder and various fees and penalties.

When Rivera declared bankruptcy, the county refused to let up, arguing that the law that prevents parents from escaping their child-support duties in bankruptcy applied to parents who'd been dinged for their kids' jail time. The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against the county, saying that this was bullshit, and letting Rivera get on with her life.

The court wrote that the case was "troubling" because it "compromise[s] the goals of juvenile correction and the best interests of the child, and, ironically, impair the ability of his mother to provide him with future support."

World seeing ‘greatest monetary policy experiment in history’ - Rothschild

Low interest rates, negative yields on government debt and quantitative easing are part of the biggest financial experiment in world history, and the consequences are yet unknown, says RIT Capital Partners Chairman Lord Rothschild.

“The six months under review have seen central bankers continuing what is surely the greatest experiment in monetary policy in the history of the world. We are therefore in uncharted waters and it is impossible to predict the unintended consequences of very low interest rates, with some 30 percent of global government debt at negative yields, combined with quantitative easing on a massive scale,” Rothschild writes in the company's semi-annual financial report.

California Assembly Passes Bill to Curb “Policing for Profit” via Asset Forfeiture; Close Federal Loophole

By Mike Maharrey

Today, August 15, 2016 the California Assembly voted 66-8 to pass a bill that not only bolsters restrictions on state officials from seizing property without due process, but throws a wrench into federal efforts to do the same.

Sen. Holly Mitchell (D-Los Angeles) introduced Senate Bill 443 (SB443) last year. The legislation sets additional restrictions on the state to prevent abuses from civil asset forfeiture, a controversial practice that observers such as the Institute for Justice (IJ) have called “legal plunder.”...

Obama and Hillary DID Found ISIS - This 2012 US Government Memo Proves It

The latest “OMG, Trump said that!” moment is The Donald’s claim that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are, correspondingly, the “founder” and “cofounder” of ISIS. True to form, the media reaction has been to shriek in outrage that he would cast aspersions on such august personages.

As of this writing, not one American media source of which this writer is aware has brought up in relation to Trump’s claims the August 2012 report (declassified and released in 2015 under a FOIA request from Judicial Watch) from the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) stating that “there is the possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared Salafist principality in Eastern Syria, and this is exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime.” The “supporting powers” are identified as “western countries” (no doubt including and led by the United States), “the Gulf States” (presumably including and led by Saudi Arabia), and “Turkey” (just Turkey).

Burning Down the House

There’s a new feature to the Anything-Goes-and-Nothing-Matters economy: Nothing-Adds-Up. The magicians who pretend to measure the growth of GDP (Gross Domestic Product — the monetary value of all the finished goods and services) came up with a second quarter “adjusted” figure of 1.2 percent. That would have to be construed by anyone acquainted with basic econ stats as perfectly dismal. And yet the Bureau of Labor Statistics put out a sparkly Nonfarm Payroll Report of 255,000 for July, way above the forecast 180,000.

There were so many ways to game the jobs number — between people forced to work more than one shit job and the notorious “birth/death model” used to just make up any old number for political purposes — that no one can take this information seriously. Anyway, the GDP number was instantly forgotten and the jobs number launched the stock markets to previously uncharted record altitude.

Taxpayers at risk as Obamacare crumbles

The health insurance exchanges that are the beating heart of Obamacare are on the edge of collapse, with premiums rising sharply for ever narrower provider networks, non-profit health co-ops shuttering their doors, and even the biggest insurance companies heading for the exits amid mounting losses. Even the liberal Capitol Hill newspaper The Hill is warning of a possible “Obamacare meltdown” this fall.

US government sued over aid to ‘nuclear’ Israel

A Washington DC non-profit group is suing the US government challenging its authority to provide Israel with foreign aid, arguing that its status – a nuclear power which didn’t sign the Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty – means that aiding it contravenes US law.

“This lawsuit is not about foreign policy. It is about the rule of law, presidential power, the structural limits of the U.S. Constitution, and the right of the public to understand the functions of government and informed petition of the government for redress,” stated the complaint filed By Gran F. Smith, Director of the Institute for Research: Middle East Policy (IRmep).

Looking at the situation in the U.S. and the turmoil in the world it will be astonishing if we even make it to the “elections” this November. Obama does not want to leave the office. He has not completed his “fundamental transformation” and there are several avenues available to him that have not yet been pursued. All of them involve a dramatic event that will enable him to suspend elections and remain in office until the end of the emergency (therefore indefinitely).

This sort of corruption would be intolerable to liberals and the mainstream media if a Republican were engaged in it. Yet these same liberals reflexively dismiss all such corruption claims against team Clinton as lacking "definitive proof" or as insignificant or immaterial. As a result, for too long, the Clintons have gotten away such scams. One can only hope that this time Bill and Hillary meet their match in U.S. attorney Bharara.

Here’s a good example of how government ‘watch lists’ fail

A recent audit of a California database designed to keep track of known gang members in the state revealed that the watch list included the names of dozens of admitted gang members who are still in diapers. -- Proponents of efforts to prohibit gun ownership for people who end up on the federal government’s terror watch lists frame the proposals as no-brainers that will make all Americans safer. But what they never talk about is the inefficiency and downright inaccuracy of the government-maintained rosters that sometimes stand between citizens and basic rights.

In 2016, liberty loses no matter who wins — Ron Paul

For all the hand-wringing about the threat to liberty and constitutional government posed by the major party presidential candidates, there is little discussion of how this threat is due to the political class’s long history of supporting expanded presidential power. There is also little talk of how the imperial presidency is just as much a creation of Congress as it is of power-hungry presidents.

Politicians hate working people

A minimum wage law is not an employment law. It is an unemployment law. It’s the eighth plank of Communism. It is a collectivist idea that all workers are equal and should be paid the same, regardless of the task they perform. It is contrary to liberty as it prohibits two parties from entering into a mutually beneficial contract. It thereby prohibits low-skilled workers from working at all.

If the free market does not produce a gold standard, it's a fake standard. It is based on government promises. Do not trust it.

Nixon simply extended the betrayal to foreign central banks. It can be summarized in three words: "You dumb clucks."

On Rape, Clinton Campaign Deletes ‘You Have The Right to Be Believed’ From Website

Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign deleted her comment on the campaign website assuring rape victims that they deserved to be believed.
“I want to send a message to every survivor of sexual assault: Don’t let anyone silence your voice. You have the right to be heard. You have the right to be believed, and we’re with you,” Clinton said in September 2015.

That quote was featured on the campaign website, according to Reddit user “goonsack” but the line “you have the right to be believed” has since been deleted.

SCHOOL TYRANNY: Honors Students Forced to Repeat Grade for Opting Out of Government Testing

A parental rights group, Opt Out Florida, wrote on its website that the suit was "an indictment of test and punish ... systems everywhere", and that "a positive outcome from this case will have repercussions nationally – for the benefit of ALL children in public schools."

The lawsuit aims to have the policy declared unconstitutional. This is an excerpt from the lawsuit:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good on these parents; I hope the outcome here is successful.

What the alleged "educational purpose" of schooling in this country has become is all about getting Federal funding by encouraging compliance and indoctrination, rather than teaching critical thinking, making morally mature choices, and truly intellectually grasping the material which is presented to them.

Our kids cannot begin to keep up with kids in Asia, or Scandinavia, in terms of math, language, and science; and I cannot help thinking that to some degree, this has been deliberate on the part of this government.

Thinking, intellectually capable citizens wouldn't put up with one tenth of the codswallop Americans swallow in terms of their government's phony narratives.

US & UN Peacekeepers Did Nothing as US Aid Workers were Raped, Beaten, Shot Right Next to Them

Nairobi, Kenya — A shocking report out of the AP on Monday, details a horrific attack that unfolded in Nairobi last month. For four hours, multiple female aid workers were beaten, shot, and savagely raped — all while U.N. peacekeeping troops and the U.S. Embassy sat back and did nothing.

“Either you have sex with me, or we make every man here rape you and then we shoot you in the head,” a soldier said, according to one of the female aid workers. By the end of the hours-long attack, the woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, had been raped by 15 South Sudanese soldiers.

TWITTER BOWS TO ISRAELI GOVERNMENT PRESSURE TO CENSOR TWEETS

Though Israel’s reputation as a true democracy has certainly come under fire, its advocates proudly point to its freewheeling press as an exemplar of the values of liberal Zionism. But even this last holdout of Israeli democracy israpidly receding, particularly in traditional domestic print and broadcast media and, more recently, among foreign-headquartered social media platforms.

The governing right wing has succeeded in gaining a virtual monopoly over the newspaper-reading public. Sheldon Adelson, an American casino magnate, founded Israel Hayom (“Israel Today”) in 2007 as a free Hebrew daily allied with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s hard-right political agenda.

Israeli political reporter Tal Schneider, writing for the i24 news portal in 2014, revealed that Adelson’s funding is the sole reason the paper survives:

You've heard the rumors, now here are the numbers: More adult Americans live with their parents and grandparents than any time in history. Welcome to the world of multigenerational households

Both the number and share of Americans living in multigenerational family households has continued to rise in recent years, according to a new study by the Pew Research Center, a nonprofit think tank in Washington, D.C. In 2014, a record 60.6 million people, or 19% of the U.S. population, lived in a multigenerational household, up from 42.4 million (17%) in 2009 and 27.5 million (12%) in 1980. Multigenerational families — households with two or more adult generations, or one that includes grandparents and grandchildren — is growing among nearly all racial groups and age groups, says D’Vera Cohn, a senior writer and editor at Pew.

Historic paintings moved to 'controlled' campus rooms after university finds them 'harmful'

Historic paintings that adorned the halls of a Wisconsin university for decades -- until someone took offense at their depiction of Native Americans -- will be seen by appointment only.

The paintings, which critics say show the Native Americans in a subservient role to white settlers, were destined for storage until the latest compromise was reached. University of Wisconsin-Stout President Bob Meyer said the potentially "harmful" art will be kept locked in conference rooms.

"...Their current uncontrolled access pose a risk of having a harmful effect on our students and other viewers," Meyer said in a statement last week on the paintings.

CALIFORNIA BILL CRIMINALIZING MEDIA REPORTING OF UNDERCOVER VIDEOS ALARMS FREE SPEECH ADVOCATES

Controversy surrounding secretly recorded videos showing Planned Parenthood employees discussing fetal tissue sales has morphed into a California proposal that would punish media companies for reporting on certain undercover videos. But media groups say the bill, which is on the verge of clearing the Legislature, could have a "chilling effect" on free speech and set the state up for First Amendment court battles.

Born from the 2015 hidden-camera footage released by the anti-abortion Center for Medical Progress, Planned Parenthood is pushing Assembly Bill 1671 which it claims will protect abortion clinics and other health care providers from similar malicious sting operations.

The bill would criminalize publishing undercover video footage of "health care providers" and subject third parties, including journalists, to penalties for reporting and distributing the illegally recorded footage.

Hillary’s Unsecured Email EXPOSES U.S. Spy… Leading to His EXECUTION

As reported by the Washington Examiner, “I’m not going to comment on what he may or may not have done for the United States government, but in the emails that were on Hillary Clinton’s private server, there were conversations among her senior advisors about this gentleman. The senator said this lapse proves she is not capable of keeping the country safe.

“That goes to show just how reckless and careless her decision was to put that kind of highly classified information on a private server. And I think her judgment is not suited to keep this country safe,” he said.

Here’s what they said to expose the brave spy Amiri, leading to his death:

PRIVATE PRISON CONTRACTOR'S $1B NO-BID DEAL TO RUN IMMIGRATION JAILS GUARANTEES 100% OCCUPANCY PAYOUTS

Private prison titan Corrections Corporation of America has extensively diversified its holdings into the entire carceral-industrial sector: halfway houses, electronic monitoring, mental health -- and family immigration detention, a growth industry where the human rights standards are rock-bottom and the payouts are guaranteed to jackpot.

CCA won a $1B no-bid federal contract to operate America's "baby-jails" -- the family immigration detention centers whose inmates include very small children and infants. The deal guarantees CCA full fees (based on 100% occupancy) even if the centers sit empty.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How in the name of heaven did CCA wind up the recipient of this no-bid contract, when they have a proven track record of not being up to the job of caring for women and children in their care?!?

It is a very simple recipe; campaign money, and connections, as indicated here:

FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SEALS AUTOPSY RESULTS OF ALTON STERLING’S DEATH

The results on an autopsy performed on a Baton Rouge, Louisiana man following his shooting death at the hands of police will remain sealed, a federal judge ruled Thursday.

However, the judge unseal the motion that led to the decision, explaining he was doing so because the “coroner is being threatened with litigation by those who do not believe his stated reasons for withholding the report,” Chief U.S. District Judge Brian Jackson’s order said.

Sterling, a 37-year-old black man, was fatally shot by police early in the morning of July 5 outside of a convenience store in Baton Rouge.
His death was captured on video and posted online, causing a rash of public outrage and it set off protests against police brutality locally and across the country.
