US public education: Bullshit to train stupefied work animals. Fine and Performing Arts limited almost exclusively for ‘pay to play;’ quietly crushing creative self-expression (9 of 12)

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

“One of the most salient features of our culture is that there is so much bullshit. Everyone knows this… But we tend to take the situation for granted… (the bullshitter) does not care whether the things he says describe reality correctly. He just picks them out, or makes them up… (Bullshitters) continue making assertions that purport to describe the way things are but that cannot be anything except bullshit.” ~ Princeton professor emeritus, Harry Frankfurt, 2005 Bestseller, On Bullshit

BEX TRASH ALERT! Donald Trump Gets AIDS In A New Movie, And That Has Studio Execs In A Panic

Huffpo has advocated the assassination of Donald Trump. I hope the place gets closed down and the editors arrested. Huffpo sees nothing wrong with getting rid of the 2nd amendment. They have abused the first horribly!

Audiences at screenings around the world, and some even in the United States, have been cheering and applauding a macabre scene in a new film by Sacha Baron Cohen in which “Donald Trump” accidentally contracts HIV.

“The Brothers Grimsby“ opens March 11 in the U.S., though chances are you’re learning that for the first time here, given a decision by Sony Pictures to limit its marketing of the satiric comedy. The studio is concerned about the reaction from the real Donald Trump, according to industry sources familiar with the situation.

The Misty Effect

Misty Copeland is the American Ballet Theatre's first black female principal dancer, and she's bringing in a more diverse audience. We chat with ballet attendees about how they feel watching her grace the stage for the first time.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Because this is a blog about geopolitics, I rarely post about the arts.

Having said that, however, the respect I have for this woman, her artistry, her journey, and her mentoring, to demonstrate what is possible, for ALL young women, is just over the top.

Bravo, Misty Copeland, and well done, at all levels, by this role model extraordinaire!!!

Freedom Vs. Slavery – The Political Spectrum

A little Political Science! By the way tyranny and slavery are synonymous.
Freedom vs. Slavery – The Political Spectrum

The Political Spectrum – Left Wing vs. Right Wing is a lie designed to confuse you about what freedom is.

The Left includes: progressives, social liberals, social democrats, socialists, communists and anarchists.

The Right includes: conservatives, reactionaries, monarchists, nationalists and fascists.

SLAVERY is on both ends of the spectrum.
Both the “Left” and the “Right” promote slavery and tyranny.

So shouted the highly respected UK Guardian’s headline of June 1, 2016 on the eve of the opening day of this month’s two-day Berlin Convergence attended by more than 170 scientists, archaeologists, architects and planners. The gathering of experts was convened to discuss how best to preserve Syria's, and our heritage, despite the five-year-old war that has killed more than 280,000 people and has also resulted in serious damage to our globally shared Cultural Heritage.

General David Shoup

After Kennedy was murdered they got rid of General Shoup. One of the greatest US Marines in the history of the Corps.

It has been said that "Old men start wars and young men fight them." To the extent that foreign policies are developed by politicians and then enforced by men and women of the military this is certainly true.

Such dissent is not specific to the young; in every war a small minority in older generations has risen in opposition to war as well.

"I believe that if we had and would keep our dirty, bloody, dollar-crocked fingers out of the business of these nations so full of depressed, exploited people, they will arrive at a solution of their own. That they design and want. That they fight and work for."

Donald Trump’s Trade Speech: Clinton ‘Worships Globalism over Americanism’

Now you are speakin my language!

Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump spoke in Monessen, Pennsylvania on Tuesday afternoon, differentiating his trade policy of an independent America from presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s record on trade and globalization.
“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.”

Erdogan expressed readiness to restore relations with Moscow, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Monday.

Motivational speaker Robbins' coal walk burns more than 30

OOH! OOWWY OUCH!

DALLAS (AP) — More than 30 people who attended an event with motivational speaker Tony Robbins have been treated for burns after Robbins encouraged them to walk on hot coals as a way of conquering their fears, Dallas fire officials said.

Five people were taken to a hospital Thursday night, while the rest were treated at the scene for burns to their feet and lower extremities, Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Jason Evans said.

The hot coals were spread outside the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center as part of a four-day Robbins seminar called "Unleash the Power Within."

The Assault | The Battle of Stalingrad (1 of 3)

"The Eastern Front experienced the viciousness of war on a scale of unimaginable horror and brutality. The bloodiest and most savage fighting took place in Stalingrad between August 1942 and February 1943. Stalin's city on the Volga had military significance for Hitler. It carried the name of his enemy and therefore had to be destroyed. The ensuing battle sealed the fates of hundreds of thousands of soldiers and civilians and marked the turning point of World War II. It was the beginning of the end for Nazi Germany.

Filmed from both the German and Russian perspective, the series contains footage shot by soldiers during the siege. The Russian archives opened their doors to the filmmakers, granting them exclusive access to previously unreleased material.

Big Trick Hybrid Op at Orlando or just another Sandy Hoax?

Some of these events have plenty of real dead people. Some of these events are totally staged with no dead people. And some are hybrids with real dead people and staged events all rolled into one to keep everybody utterly confused!

Could it be that the KM/EH deployed a new hybrid form of false-flag, one that used both really dead victims and really stupid obvious crisis actors and staged phony victims afterwards? Could it be that they figured they could set a big trap and later release actual photos and autopsies and death certificates on some real victims?

A hybrid false-flag with both some real dead victims and some stupid looking phony crisis actors to provide the appearance that the whole op was virtual only with no dead, would serve a very big trick, if it could be sold both ways — First as a phony op to the researchers, and later as a real op to everyone by releasing real incontrovertible evidence later of actual dead victims.

In Defense of Self-Defense

Most of the mass killings by gun in the United States in recent years—Columbine, Virginia Tech, Aurora, Newtown, Charleston, San Bernardino, and now Orlando—took place in venues where local or state law prohibited carrying guns, even by those lawfully licensed to do so. The government cheerfully calls these venues "gun-free zones." They should be called killing zones.

As unspeakable and horrific as is the recent slaughter in Orlando, it has become just another example of the tragic consequences of government's interfering with the exercise of fundamental liberties. After a while, these events cease to shock; but they should not cease to cause us to re-examine what the government has done to us.

Authoritarian Control and Mass Murder In America The Hegelian Dialectic Way

This article will demonstrate how New World Order globalists and their neocon puppets in Washington have consistently employed this repeating cycle of the Hegelian Dialectic consisting of the problem (originally called thesis), reaction (anti-thesis) and solution (synthesis) during this century’s federal governmental domestic policies. Inasmuch as US Empire virtually controls all Western nations as well as nearly all Third World nations, this insidious undemocratic process is unfolding globally on the geopolitical chessboard with the ultimate objective of establishing one world government tyranny.

This endless do-loop application stateside will be analyzed to demonstrate how the feds have amplified and concocted a “homegrown” enemy of radicalized violent extremists to intentionally include millions of non-violent, law abiding US citizens as the identified problem.

PAK 40 German 75mm anti tank gun.

Published on Jun 22, 2014
This gun is a beast! As you can see the muzzle blast is incredible. The WWII German PAK (PanzerAbwehrKanone) 40 was developed in early WWII but didn't see widespread production until about 1941. The gun was often used by allied forces whenever they would over run German positions which shows the effectiveness of the gun.
This gun was resurrected from an art museum where the owner had painted it pink! It was restored to working order and the federal paperwork required to build and possess this gun was obtained. It is not legal for an ordinary citizen to have a working field piece like this.

As It Shapes ISIS-Centric Narrative, Orlando Police Reject Freedom of Information Request for Audio of Nightclub Shooter’s 911 Call

Hours after Omar Mateen opened fire in the LGBTQ Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, the Orlando Police Department informed the media that Mateen had sworn allegiance to ISIS in a call to its 911 emergency line.

According to FBI officials, Mateen previously pledged simultaneous allegiance to Al Qaeda and Hezbollah, two militant groups fighting on opposite sides of the Syrian civil war, and whose members have battled ISIS at various intervals.

On June 13, AlterNet’s Grayzone Project submitted a request under Florida’s public records law for a written transcript and/or an audio recording of any and all phone calls that Mateen made to Orlando’s 911 emergency line on the date of the Pulse Nightclub mass killing.

In Georgia – the country, not the state – men raided a vegan café and pelted patrons with meat.

Then a brawl broke out and the assailants escaped into the night. The whole episode, the café owners say, shows just how intolerant people are. Meanwhile, in Los Angeles, owners of a vegan café say they've been getting death threats since they decided to start eating meat again. Talk about your food fights.

"One of the most intriguing might-have-beens in American History"

Jefferson's Tardy Constitution
by Jack Lynch

Americans are so accustomed to associating Thomas Jefferson with the nation's founding documents that they easily overlook that he played no hands-on role in composing the United States Constitution.

He recorded his first impressions November 13, 1787, in a letter to William S. Smith: "There are very good articles in it: & very bad. I do not know which preponderate."

Disturbing for Jefferson was "the abandonment in every instance of the necessity of rotation in office." Experience had convinced him that, without term limits, every elected official will be "an officer for life." That Constitution's neglect of this problem was for him a nearly fatal flaw.

Who are the Syrian Desert Hawks?

The Syrians have their own proxy army.

In a matter of two years, the Syrian Desert Hawks (var. Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra) have become one of the most effective fighting forces in the Syrian War; however, very little is known about this paramilitary group.
Often described as a unit from the pro-government “National Defense Forces” (var. NDF), the Desert Hawks actually have no affiliation with the latter or the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).

The man behind the Desert Hawks:
The Desert Hawks were originally started by a retired Syrian Army officer, General Mohammad Jaber, in early 2013.

The Desert Hawks are now leading the charge to the provincial capital of Al-Raqqa, where they are looking to expel the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham before the U.S. backed rebels reach the city.

Beware what you wish for: Russia is ready for war

The bottom line is that Russia – in terms of hypersonic missile development – is about four generations ahead of the US, if we measure it by the development of the S-300, S-400 and S-500 systems. As a working hypothesis, we could describe the next system – already in the drawing boards – as the S-600.

Russian – and Chinese – missiles are already able to knock out the satellite guidance systems for US nuclear tipped ICBMs and cruise missiles. They could also knock out the early alert warnings that the satellite constellations would give. A Russian hypersonic ICBM flight time, launched for instance from a Russian nuclear sub all the way to the US East Coast, counts for less than 20 minutes. So an early warning system is absolutely critical. Don’t count on the worthless THAAD and Patriot to do their job. Once again, Russian hypersonic technology has already rendered the entire missile defense system in both the US and Europe totally obsolete.

Ahead of its time: Doctor Who’s 56 inspiring female scientists

Thee issue of gender equity in science has received a lot of attention recently. Governments are throwing money at it, scientists are speaking up about it and news agencies are reporting on it.

Researchers interested in fictional scientists are also concerned about gender inequality in cinema and television, and its role-modelling impact on aspiring scientists. But things are changing there too.

Our research into scientists and gender in Doctor Who over the past 50 years shows there are many reasons to celebrate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Although TV shows are an area we normally don't cover on this blog, if you have never seen this marvelous BBC sci-fi romp, I commend it to you heartily.

I am a true, died-in-the-wool "Whovian" who first encountered the show in the early 80s on public television in Los Angeles.

The quality of the writing is fascinating, and the way the character of the Doctor is written, and performed, through the decades, has been nothing short of amazing.

Tiny Homes For The Homeless Now Under Attack In California

Isaac Davis, Staff
Waking Times

Personal liberty is under attack in so many areas of American society, and combined with a faltering economy, people are in greater need than ever of finding ways to survive economically while still maintaining basic freedoms.

The tiny house movement is one of the many creative ways in which people are out-smarting the matrix of consumerism and debt. Recently, however, we reported on the federal government’s attempts through the Department of Housing and Urban Development to make owning and living in a tiny home more difficult for those who wish to do so.

Russian Orchestra Gives Stunning Performance In Palmyra Ruins

Russia’s Mariinsky Theatre staged a surprise concert in the amphitheater of the Syrian city of Palmyra on Thursday, in what looked like an attempt by the Kremlin to win hearts and minds and remind the world of its role in the city’s recapture.

The concert, held just over a month after Russian air strikes helped push Islamic State militants out of Palmyra, saw Valery Gergiev, a close associate of President Vladimir Putin, conduct the Mariinsky orchestra.

Sergei Roldugin, a cellist friend of Putin’s named in the Panama Paper leaks as owning a network of offshore firms that have handled billions of dollars, also performed. He has denied any wrongdoing.

Putin, addressing the audience by video link from his Russian Black Sea residence of Sochi, called terrorism a contagion the world needed to rid itself of and said the fact the concert was taking place at all was “surprising.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It would have been nice if the writers of this article, attempting to smear the cellist Sergei Roldugin, happened to mention, instead of demonizing this guy as one of the people named in the Panama Papers, that the loopholes in the laws allowing this need to be fixed.

That having been said, God bless Putin and this orchestra for this performance! Music is the universal language of peace and healing.

These people need to be thoroughly congratulated, not only for their musicianship, but their collective courage in doing the gig in Syria.

That took guts.

Mattis versus Trump

Trump was invited last week by the The National Interest to give his first speech on foreign policy.

To everyone’s surprise – but probably not that of the organisaters - «the Donald» did not have anything to say about his position on various subjects, aimed at satisfying one lobby or another, but instead delivered an analysis of US policy and describing its total overhaul.

He delivered a criticism of neo-conservative ideology, which has held power since the coup d’etat of September 11th 2001.

He continued with an indirect attack on the «military-industrial complex», blaming the general excess of weapons in the world. There was no mistake – for the first time since the assassination of John Kennedy, a presidential candidate was denouncing the omnipotence of the arms manufacturers, who have eaten up almost all of US industry.

Satanists are furious that Boehner compared Ted Cruz to the Dark Lord

On Wednesday night, former House Speaker John Boehner bluntly called GOP candidate Ted Cruz “Lucifer in the flesh.”

When asked for his opinion about the Texas senator, Boehner said, “I have Democrat friends and Republican friends. I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life.”

It turns out that the Satanic Temple agrees with Boehner’s sentiments — but they said there’s no way Cruz is the living incarnate of Satan.

Breathtaking Photos Capture Cuba’s Legendary Ballerinas Dancing In The Streets

In Cuba, the ballet is something of a national treasure. The dancers recruited into Alicia Alonso’s storied company Ballet Nacional de Cuba, for example, reportedly make more money than doctors and enjoy a level of fandom reserved only for pop stars in the United States. The Cuban government not only funds ballet training but also subsidizes tickets to ballet performances. Lovers of Cuban dance like to say the adoration and skill is in their DNA.

“You can find anyone in the street here in Havana who can dance as well as most professionals,” Cuba’s Ballet Rakatan choreographer Nilda Guerra told The Guardian.

Bar Mitzvah – the moment when the male Jew accepts that his foreskin is not going to grow back
Canaan – the land of milking money
Catch 22 – free ham
Jewish mother – Just like a Jewish father but with balls
Water – is vital for all known forms of life except Palestinians

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Gilad's book is very funny. Please try to get to the opening if you are in New York, and buy his book to support his peace activism.

Israel puts poet under house arrest

Dareen Tatour has long dreamed of seeing her poems translated from Arabic into other languages — so that they reach people across the world.

One of her poems has indeed been translated recently, but not in the way she had hoped.

A Hebrew version of “Resist, my people, resist them” was read aloud by an Israeli police officer at a Nazareth court hearing on 13 April. Tatour has been charged with incitement to violence based on the contents of that poem, the Arabic original of which is available on YouTube.

Although the poem urges resistance to Israel, it does not call for specific acts of violence. Rather, it draws attention to violent attacks on Palestinians by Israelis.

Another Russian invention has been added to the arsenal of Syrian government forces.

That is a close range reconnaissance radar station "Fara-1" that allows you to track and to destroy the enemy at any time of the day in the absence of optical visibility.

The device, according to the "Vestnik of Mordovia", entered into the service of a number of divisions.

In ‘Era of Propaganda’ Press Freedom on Decline

Reporters without borders (RWB) released their annual World Press Index which reports that the United States ranks 41 out of 180 in press freedom and independence. The World Press Index is an annual report based on an evaluation of media freedom that measures pluralism, media independence, the quality of the legal framework and the safety of journalists in each country. It is compiled by means of a questionnaire in 20 languages that is completed by an expert. This qualitative analysis is combined with quantitative data on abuses and acts of violence against journalists.

Russia plans S-500 missile defense system deployment

“We are expecting the first models of the S-500 air defense systems very soon,” RT quoted Russian Aerospace Forces Vice-Commander Lieutenant General Viktor Gumenny as saying on Friday.

According to reports, Russia’s Defense Ministry has already ordered five of the systems which are currently passing their final testing stages.

Viktor Murakhovsky, a member of the Military-Industrial Commission advisory council, said the new complex will be highly superior to its previous models such as the S-400.

'A Heavy Penalty...for Making Money' - 50th Anniversary of the Beatles Classic 'Taxman'

2016 marks the 50th anniversary of "Taxman," the classic Beatles song protesting high taxes.

The song was written by George Harrison and released in 1966 on the album "Revolver." In "The Beatles Anthology" documentary, Harrison explains the origin of the song: “In those days we paid 19 shillings and sixpence [96p] out of every pound, and with supertax and surtax and tax-tax it was ridiculous - a heavy penalty to pay for making money. That was a big turn-off for Britain. Anybody who ever made any money moved to America or somewhere else.”

Let Me Ask America a Question

By DONALD J. TRUMP
April 14, 2016 7:18 p.m. ET
355 COMMENTS
On Saturday, April 9, Colorado had an “election” without voters. Delegates were chosen on behalf of a presidential nominee, yet the people of Colorado were not able to cast their ballots to say which nominee they preferred.

A planned vote had been canceled. And one million Republicans in Colorado were sidelined.

Let me ask America a question: How has the “system” been working out for you and your family?

I, for one, am not interested in defending a system that for decades has served the interest of political parties at the expense of the people. Members of the club—the consultants, the pollsters, the politicians, the pundits and the special interests—grow rich and powerful while the American people grow poorer and more isolated.

‘Democracy Spring is a Soros-funded, anti-Trump radical movement’

Americans, at least the enlightened ones, know that the system is rigged. And the organic element that’s here is that the people of America have every right to be angry because big money dominates politics, Christopher Greene from alternative GreeneWave TV, told RT.

RT: What's the key driver of this public anger we're seeing in the US capital?
Christopher Greene: George Soros, primarily. It is important to note that ‘Democracy Spring’ is an anti-Donald Trump radical organization.

Just Flasking Ridiculous!

By Jack Perry
April 12, 2016
Hey, did you know in Texas, it’s illegal to possess an Erlenmeyer flask without a permit from the government? What’s an Erlenmeyer flask? It’s that glass conical-bottom, narrow-necked flask you see in all the science labs. Remember high school science class? So why is a piece of science lab equipment illegal without das paperwerken from das government? Because it’s allegedly used to manufacture illegal drugs. Well, gosh, so are a lot of things! But this is a thing I have mentioned before here and now would like to expand on: Local government is often the most tyrannical because they can pass laws faster than the federal government can spend a billion dollars.
Webmaster addition: I use an Erlenmeyer flask to make nano-silver!

Panama Papers may help solve mystery of Modigliani masterpiece missing for 50 years, fifth estate finds

Now, a massive leak of 11.5 million documents known as the Panama Papers contains secret documents that may help solve part of the mystery of the masterpiece called Seated Man With A Cane.

The Panama Papers reveal that a powerful family of international art dealers may be using a Panamanian-registered company to obscure its ownership of the Modigliani painting that is at the centre of a high-stakes court battle.

Ted Cruz and Pastors Smite Donald Trump in Wisconsin

Christian Evangelical support. Voter fraud,as well as Trump doing virtually No campaigning in Wisconsin,sending Palin in as his sub.
His support has been dropping since he made that groveling speech before AIPAC and talking about jailing women for abortions wasn't too smart either. I sure hope we are not being Perowwed!

MILWAUKEE — On Tuesday night, Christians saved Ted Cruz.
The Texan made winning Wisconsin look easy, waltzing to a double-digit victory in the Badger State and all but guaranteeing that the Republican Party will pick its nominee at a contested convention in Cleveland this summer.
But Tuesday’s result was not predestined—and it wasn’t just a series of unforced errors that made the Trump Train sputter. The Cruz team pulled off a singular organizing feat, corralling a sizable number of Christian pastors for last-minute endorsements that helped shore up his support among evangelical Christians.

Play about 17-year-old Palestinian youth killed in 2000 tours Atlanta, St. Louis, New York

A play about martyrdom in the second intifada that has been widely praised is playing to sold-out audiences on campuses across the country and you should check it out if you get a chance. The show is called There Is a Field, and the playwright is the prolific activist/author Jen Marlowe. Marlowe did extensive reporting on the case of Aseel Asleh, 17, killed in October 2000; and this dramatic work featuring a diverse cast of actors and dealing with state violence generally is the result.

Trump Hires Former Gazprom Consultant as Foreign Policy Adviser

The leading candidate for US president from Republican party, Donald Trump hired investment banker Carter Page, who worked with investments in the oil and gas industry, as his foreign policy adviser. Before he created his own investment fund Global Energy Capital, Page worked at Merrill Lynch, was a consultant of the Russian state monopolist "Gazprom" and spent three years in Moscow.

On the pages of Global Policy Paige fumed about the "false philosophy and draconian tactics" of NATO, explained the actions of the authorities of Russia, Iran and China as a "response" to the "humiliating treatment" by the United States and accused the West of creating "economic disaster in Russia and Ukraine", stated that the revolution in Kiev was staged by Victoria Nuland, and so on in the same spirit.

ISIS attacked Brussels? The US created ISIS? Therefore?

As far as the Brussels attacks are concerned, if we assume that ISIS was responsible, the whole scenario is turned upside down after analyzing the basis of ISIS.

The Obama administration (jointly with the Bush administration) should be announcing: “Well, we keep ISIS alive. Unfortunately, things happen. One of those things is Brussels.”

And then you could go on to query the sincerity of the word “unfortunately.”

From AIPAC to Trump: Michael Glassner’s journey

How does one go from serving as AIPAC’s Southwest Regional Political Director a year ago to running Donald Trump’s national political operation today?
Ever since Trump announced his White House bid last June, Michael Glassner has been serving as his campaign’s national political director. In part, he is credited with landing the coveted Sarah Palin endorsement ahead of the Iowa Caucus last month.

Upon moving to New Jersey in the late nineties, Glassner served as a senior advisor to Lewis Eisenberg, the then-Chairman of the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey and a prominent Republican Jewish leader. He worked out of the Port Authority’s World Trade Center office but left just before 9/11 to join IDT Corp in Newark. Glassner credits his former boss, IDT founder Howard Jonas, whom he referred to as “a strong Zionist and an AIPAC guy,” with encouraging him to become more active in pro-Israel politics.

‘Ready To Fire’ Cellphone-Shaped Double-Barrel Handgun Could Be Released

A new two-shot, double-barreled handgun can be neatly folded into the shape of a box resembling a smartphone – and its release is making police nervous.

The concept handgun, patent pending, would be manufactured by Ideal Conceal, a Minnesota startup. The .380 caliber pistol is small enough to be folded into a palm-sized square that can be easily slipped into a back pocket. Because it looks similar to a smartphone, it could be left out in plain view on a shop counter without arousing suspicions.

WHAT IS COLD FUSION?

When hydrogen, the main element of water, is introduced to a small piece of the metal nickel or palladium, a reaction occurs that can create excess heat and transmutation products. Excess heat means more heat comes out of the system than went in to the system. The excess heat can make hot water and useful steam to turn a turbine and produce electricity.

Hydrogen is the most abundant element in the universe. On Earth, hydrogen is found in water. An energy source from hydrogen is clean, with no carbon-dioxide CO2 emissions. In LENR reactions, only tiny amounts of the hydrogen are consumed and the metal is recyclable when spent.

COPS CRIMINALLY CHARGE DJ FOR PLAYING NWA’S ‘F*CK THA POLICE’

Is the United States turning into a police state? Incidences like this certainly make it seem that way.

A popular music DJ has just been charged with disorderly conduct for nothing more than playing NWA.’s classic ‘F*ck tha Police’ song, while cops conducted a “raid” on a club for having “too many people in attendance.”

MassLive reported that the incident took place when police officers from Westfield, Massachusetts found themselves called to get ride of 350 people who had exceeded the 160-capacity limit for the club in question.

The place where the music was being Shenanigans Pub.

Kashawn Harris, AKA DJ Boogy, couldn’t believe the ridiculousness of the police raiding a place for having a few more people than the fire department would like to see.

So he began spinning the famous NWA track, which led to the officers giving charging the 25-year-old with disorderly conduct.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, I get the issue of overcrowding, and it can be a real public safety issue.

But to charge this guy for attempting to start a "riot"?!?

Please, give me a break!

Although I am a primarily Christian composer, this is a free speech issue, pure and simple. I hope his attorney defends him on those grounds.

And if ALL police around the country were treating ALL of its citizens with respect and dignity, this lyric would never have been created in the first place.

This is simply a reflection of anger expressed as a song, and it is no bloody wonder that it has such a resonance with many of the dispossessed in this country.

ATTENTION SEATTLE READERS - DEATH ON THE SUPERMARKET SHELF

In 1982, 8 year-old Michelle saw her mother die after taking Tylenol. 6 more deaths were reported. What followed was a nation wide panic that forever altered consumer confidence.

Alan Bryce, writer of For All That, brings us another engrossing play – a real life murder mystery with a darkly disturbing backdrop of corporate intrigue with the child of one of the victims still in relentless pursuit of the truth.

Written by Alan A Bryce Directed by Tina Polzin Music Arranged and Recorded by Dawn Clement

Set Designer - Julia Welch Costume Desinger - Melinda Hare Lighting Designer - Paul Arnold

Sound Designer - Amy Silveria Properties - Jordan Adams Stage Manager - Colton Sullivan

Webmaster's Commentary:

Michelle (who has been on my radio show many times) was in Seattle for the premier over the weekend and reports back that the production company did a great job of telling the story of the "investigation." If you live in near Seattle, you might find it worthwhile to see this show.

AL: Armed Citizen lnvolved in Stopping Mass Shooting

The perp lost his balls....literally and surgically. What a shot!

Arizona – -(Ammoland.com)- Another legally armed person has stopped a potential mass shooting in Hamilton, Alabama on February 10th, 2016.

The shooting occurred in the morning, a little over an hour before noon, over a distance of a couple of blocks.

Two people, 67-year-old Donny Miller and 61-year-old Linda Cole were killed in separate offices. The second victim was shot in an accounting office close to the bank pictured above.

The legally armed man believed that he hit the suspect, Jimmy Cooper, twice. That is consistent with the reports that the suspect has gunshot wounds to the arm and leg.

Seattle theater to stage play about Tylenol murders

The play centers on the "moral conundrums" faced by police and Johnson & Johnson. But it also focuses on the tireless pursuit of what happened by Michelle Rosen, daughter of victim Mary "Lynn" Reiner, of Winfield.

Rosen was only 8 years old when she saw her mother drop to the kitchen floor and die of cyanide poisoning. Years later, that memory drove her to spend years doing her own in-depth investigation. Despite obstacles, Rosen uncovered information about the case (much of it is on tylenolmurders.com) and came to believe the Tylenol tampering occurred in the distribution channel, not the widely believed theory that a lone madman planted cyanide in Tylenol bottles across the suburbs.

Rosen's research was used in "The Tylenol Mafia." However, her findings have been largely ignored by investigators.

Rosen, who now lives in Texas, said she doesn't know Bryce and hasn't seen his script. But she is hopeful the play will help bring the spotlight back onto the cold case.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Michelle Rosen has been a guest on the radio show many times, and we will have her back to talk about this new play.

SUNDAY MATINEE ~~ PALESTINIAN ART OF STEADFASTNESS

After the 1948 ethnic cleansing of Palestine, what has become known as the Nakba, the theme of refugees — “hopeless, helpless and without homes” — dominated.

But, as veteran artist Sliman Mansour explains, after the emergence of the armed struggle in the 1960s, “Palestinian art became proud.”

“The Palestinian woman with her nice dress, flowing hair and long neck: the woman is a symbol of the revolution,” he says.

Jerusalem soon became a symbol for Palestine, and Mansour is perhaps best known for his painting of an elderly man carrying its walled Old City, with the Dome of the Rock as its crown jewel, on his back.

Syrian Army outflanks ISIS fighters in eastern Aleppo – Map update

Pretty soon they will have ISIS in a Cauldron and they will be rolled up and destroyed Like G.A. Custer at the Little Big Horn,which is why Erdogan is screaming bloody murder!

Earlier today, Tiger Forces captured the village of Tanouza as government troops continue to defeat ISIS fighters in eastern Aleppo. Just yesterday, the Syrian Arab Army captured Afesh village while also advancing from newly liberated Wadiah. The main government push seems to be west from Kuweiris Airbase towards the city of Aleppo; meanwhile, sporadic clashes continue relentlessly a few miles from Deir Hafer and Al-Bab.

Regrettably from an Islamist perspective, local ISIS fighters witness themselves desperately trying to predict the next advance by Tiger Forces. Meanwhile, government troops find themselves in high morale as they continue to seize momentum while gradually passing through a collapsing Islamic State line of defence.

They are charged under a federal civil war statute making it illegal to fight back. Then they had the Civil War.

LaVoy Finicum, who was shot at a roadblock by Oregon State Troopers and left to bleed to death in the snow, was not a violent criminal. He and his colleagues from the group calling itself Citizens for Constitutional Freedom were traveling to John Day, Oregon to organize political resistance to federal control over lands in the western United States.

The carefully planned ambush, which displayed detailed intelligence regarding the plans of Finicum and his friends, was a joint operation between the FBI and the Oregon State Police. It was was not carried out in defense of persons or property, but to enforce the will of those in control of the Regime.

“This legislation guarantees that we will not take our forests, rivers, oceans, national parks, monuments and wilderness areas for granted, but rather we will set them aside and guard their sanctity for everyone to share.

To anyone who knows the record of public land management, however, these words of preservation and unanimous support ring hollow.

But the real reason it is doomed to fail is because it is a government operation, on both sides. The objective is total control of all property in the United States in accordance with the UN's Agenda 21 objectives, such as "sustainable development" which when boiled down is nothing but the end of private property.

One way or another, the Bundy's got roped in to this either by the agents provocateur from the Bundy Ranch Stand-Off, or by direct threats to cooperate in this psyop. The militias that were at the Bundy Ranch identified these agents provocateur and outed them to the Bundys. What surprised everyone in the militias was that the Bundy's picked these very same trouble makers as their personal security on the Ranch.

Oregon Standoff: Federal Provocateurs, Sociopaths And Idiots

I was first apprised of this a few minutes ago by folks on the ground out in Oregon. They report that Payne, Ritzheimer and every other “tiger-talking” fruit, nut and federal provocateur previously identified from the Bundy standoff were now in possession of the building and daring the Feds to do anything about it. My initial reaction was to observe that at least afterward we’ll know who the federal snitches are because they will be the only ones who survive the raid to take back the building. My understanding is that this premeditated action has been condemned by the Oregon Three Percenters and other groups but the fact of the matter is that these people are writing checks that they expect the rest of us to cash in our blood. And the Hammonds themselves are disavowing this action in the strongest terms.

The Bundy Oregon Standoff Psyop: I fought the law and the law won

But a funny thing happened on the way to the neoliberal privatization party. The feds finally stepped in and did their job arresting the leadership of the illegal occupation.

Or did they?

As far as I can tell, the official story goes something like this:

The feds somehow got wind of a road trip the Bundy leadership was taking to John Day so they set up a road-block in order to arrest them away from the Malheur National Forest where they have been illegally occupying the wildlife refuge (and wrecking the place) since Jan. 2, 2016.

Ammond Bundy, Ryan Bundy, Shawna Cox, 59, of Kanab, Utah, and Ryan Waylen Payne, 32, of Anaconda, Mont., Brian Cavalier, 44, of Bunkerville, Nev. were arrested at the scene.
