Not Just Surveillance — 3 Current Phenomena Exposing 1984 as an Instruction Manual for The State

By Claire Bernish

Assessing current conditions in the United States, it would be next to impossible not to grasp innumerable parallels to George Orwell’s dystopic portent, 1984. Though other fictional dystopias could similarly elicit comparisons to the dark turn taken by American empire, aspects of 1984’s creepy authoritarian nightmare ring all-too-true.

And Big Brother-like surveillance — though undoubtedly relevant — imparts only the most obvious, and therefore least pertinent, connection on the list...

Obama: TTIP Necessary So As to Protect Megabanks From Prosecution

On May 7th, Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten, or German Economic News, headlined, “USA planen mit TTIP Frontal-Angriff auf Gerichte in Europa” or “U.S. Plans Frontal Attack on Europe’s Courts via TTIP,” and reported that, “America’s urgency to sign TTIP with Europe has solid reason: Megabanks must protect themselves from claims by European investors who allege that they were cheated during the debt crisis. … The U.S. Ambassador to Italy has now let the cat out of the bag on this — probably unintentionally.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, the real reason President Obama has his knickers in a twist about the TTIP getting signed quickly is to protect megabanks from cheated customers!!

If you want to know by whom politicians are owned, look for the national and international corporations which are protected by legislation for which they are shilling.

For example, in the Homeland Security Act, pharmaceutical manufacturers were "held harmless and indemnified" for any harm their vaccines could cause; with Obama, it is the TTIP, which he has championed, which dissolves all national sovereignty; puts corporations in charge of all laws; and protects megabanks from lawsuits by cheated customers!!

I know that I have become disgusted and cynical about the political process in this country, but darn it, sometimes I just can't keep up!!

SAUDI ARABIA RELEASES VIDEO TEACHING HUSBANDS HOW TO BEAT THEIR WIVES [VIDEO]

The national television of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has aired a video, in which a self-styled Islamic family doctor is seen teaching men in the country how to ‘properly’ beat their wives. The video is believed to have been aired in the country in early February, 2016. The Kingdom’s government is said to have approved the video, and that is why it was given airtime on national television. After airing the video in Saudi Arabia, the Saudi government released the controversial video in the United States via the Washington DC-based Middle East Media Research Institute, in April 2016. Women activists group describe the video as nothing less than infuriating.

US Ambassador to Hungary: Overthrow Assad, Let in Refugees, and Fight Russia… or Else!

If anyone wants a short course on what’s wrong with US diplomacy look no further than US Ambassador to Hungary Coleen Bell’s speech Friday to the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Hungarian Parliament. In typical diplo-speak there was plenty of flowery language about shared values, fish swimming together in the same water (?), sappy poetics like “together, out of that winter, we would force the spring,” and talk of together being “part of the world’s greatest military and political alliance.”

But make no mistake: Inside Ambassador Bell’s velvet glove is an iron fist, poised to strike should Washington’s annoyingly independent-minded Fidesz-led government step out of line on the big issues. And by “big” issues it should be understood that the US means the issues it considers in the interests of its own foreign policy, not those in Hungary’s interest.

Message to Hungary: do as we say or you will be sorry.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I love it; this gal was a TV soap producer who "earned" her ambassadorship not by her education, previous employment, research, or knowledge about Hungary, but because she was a top Obama fundraiser!

If I were a US State Department official who had done the work, worked my way up the ranks, had a clue about international relations, and saw this woman get this job with other qualifications than to have been a top Obama fund raiser who could lie for her country with impunity, I would resign in abject disgust.

For the last couple of administrations, both Democratic and Republican, real qualifications for such a job mean absolutely nothing.

Israeli Defense Ministry Plans New Settlement in Northern West Bank

In recent years, the Israeli government has tended to resolve complaints about blatantly illegal settler outposts built on privately owned Palestinian land by retroactively legalizing the seizure of the land. This has been virtually obligatory for the far-right government, which depends heavily on settler votes for its narrow majority.

In the case of Amona, however, settler demands don’t seem to be working, with the Israeli High Court demanded the outpost be leveled by the end of 2012. You’ll notice, of course, that it is now 2016, but officials say it’ll probably have to happen by year’s end, and the court ruling makes retroactive legalization all but impossible.

Still, placating the settlers is job one, and despite expressions of outrage by them, the Israeli Defense Ministry is working on building a new, much larger settlement in the northern West Bank, which house the Amona residents plus a bunch of new settlers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Brisk annexation of Palestinian lands is one of the many aspects of Israel's "Final Solution" to their alleged "Palestinian Problem".

Price for Witnessing Against War

Fr. Daniel Berrigan’s funeral was being live-streamed Friday, as I started to write this, which seems only fitting. Dan’s witness and writing have been a constantly rechargeable battery for my moral compass.

Live-streaming (arranged by America magazine) was the next-best thing to being at the funeral in person. And it brought back memories of getting shoehorned into West Baltimore’s St. Peter Claver church in early December 2002 for an equally moving celebration of the life of Dan’s younger brother, Fr. Phil Berrigan.

Homilist Fr. Steve Kelly, S.J., who has spent more than a decade in this or that prison for nonviolent resistance to war began with some Berrigan-style Irish humor: “Let members of the FBI assigned here today validate that it is Daniel Berrigan’s funeral Mass of the Resurrection, so they can complete and perhaps close their files. ‘Death has no dominion!’ to quote Daniel’s friend William Stringfellow.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I briefly met Ray McGovern at the 10 year anniversary of 9/11, where Mike spoke in New York.

I consider him a man of absolute, peaceful, and Christian, principal, and I hold him in the highest regard.

The treatment he was given by Clinton's goons at her speech demonstrates, painfully clearly, her fascist, belligerent, and inescapably violent tendencies, which make her a lousy candidate for President.

HOW THE SECRET SERVICE IS TRYING TO HANDCUFF THE PRESS

The media fightback has begun after the Secret Service was given the power to run background checks on thousands of journalists who want to attend this summer’s Republican and Democratic Party nominating conventions. The United States Secret Service—the agency that protects the president, foreign dignitaries, and various government officials, among other critical duties—has assumed an expanded new power that has Washington journalists up in arms.

MASSACHUSETTS HAS THE WORST ASSET FORFEITURE LAWS IN THE NATION

A new report using state and federal data identifies Massachusetts and North Dakota as the two states with “the worst civil forfeiture laws in the country.” The legal bar the state must meet to seize property and assets is very low in Massachusetts, and does not require a criminal conviction. The findings come from the Virginia-based, libertarian legal nonprofit Institute for Justice’s new “Policing for Profit” report. Nearly all civil asset forfeiture proceeds in Massachusetts go to law enforcement, according to the Institute.

'Brexit' could trigger World War Three, warns David Cameron

David Cameron has pleaded for Britain to stay in the EU to help prevent the Continent being ripped apart by another conflict.

Mr Cameron today highlighted the UK’s role in bringing peace to Europe as he hit the referendum campaign trail - just hours before a rival speech by rival Tory MP Boris Johnson.

Introduced by Labour ex-Foreign Secretary David Miliband at the British Museum in London, he said: "Can we be so sure peace and stability on our continent are assured beyond any shadow of doubt? Is that a risk worth taking?

"I would never be so rash to make that assumption."

But he was attacked hours later by Brexit-backing Mr Johnson, who said: "People should think very hard before they make these kinds of warnings.

Turkey Bombs Kurdish City Using Banned Phosphorous Munitions

The Turkish army used munitions containing phosphorus against the Kurdish-inhabited city of Nusaybin in the country’s south, a Kurdish source told Sputnik on Sunday.

"The Turkish army shelled a district of the Nusaybin city in southern Turkey using munitions which are likely to contain the banned substance of phosphorus," the source said.

Nusaybin is located in the Mardin province, where two Turkish servicemen were killed during a raid against the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), outlawed in the country, earlier in the day.

White phosphorus munitions are used in smoke and incendiary munitions. White phosphorus is not specifically banned, but the 1983 UN Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons bans the use of incendiary weapons in indiscriminate attacks against civilians.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More serial genocide against the Kurds in Turkey, I see.

When you exclude people from the political process, you create a recipe for creating radicalism and chaos; this is precisely what the Turkish government has done against their Kurdish minority.

What is Cooking in the Bosnian Pot? CIA Director’s Visit to the Balkans

On April 21, 2016, under the cover of darkness, a U.S. military plane landed on Sarajevo international airport.[1] The mysterious guest was greeted by Osman Mehmedagi?, the chief of the Bosnian intelligence agency - the Intelligence-Security Agency.

The first reports in the Bosnian and other regional media were that the mysterious visitor came unannounced.[6] It later emerged that this was only a surprise for some, but hardly for all Bosnian politicians and high-level security officials. After all, this is a standard CIA operational procedure. It’s called ‘compartmentalization’: in the know are only those who need to know. The CIA director John O. Brennan's visit to Sarajevo was actually carefully planned and scheduled at least two months in advance at the time of Mehmedagi?'s first visit to the U.S. Brennan flew into Sarajevo directly from Riyadh where he accompanied the U.S. President Barack Obama and attended a meeting of the regional Arab security heads.

Protests erupt in Athens as parliament adopts new austerity measures

Greek MPs have voted in favor of new austerity measures, including pension cuts, tax hikes, and new taxes on internet and TV. Clashes with police broke out as thousands in Athens protested the moves that Greece’s creditors have been demanding.

Late on Sunday night, the Greek Parliament adopted controversial pension reforms set to reduce pension allowances and raise taxes, among other measures, in order to comply with EU bail-out requirements, as anti-austerity protests continued to rock Athens.

How Obama’s Lawyers “Legalized” the War on Terror

The legal architecture of Obama’s version of the “war on terror” is as resistant to adjudication as was Bush’s more ramshackle structure. How does a defendant prepare a defense when he is denied accusatory evidence on the grounds that it entails ‘state secrets?’ How does a defendant in a non-terrorist case protect himself from the prosecution’s exploitation of evidence obtained without a court warrant when its source is kept secret because it was the fall-out from a national security surveillance case? How does a plaintiff gain standing to bring suit when the courts agree with the Executive’s assertion that the individual in question must demonstrate having suffered personal damage? How does some American citizen on Obama’s ‘kill list’ appeal for redress when required to make a personal appearance in a United States court — transit to which might make him vulnerable to murder by American authorities.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The conclusion here is glaringly, and painfully, obvious; President Obama is just as much a criminal warmonger as was his predecessor, and no less accountable to the warlords of the military/industrial complex, to keep the madness of perpetual wars going.

PANAMA PAPERS LEAK: SAUDI KING FUNDED NETANYAHU’S RISE TO POWER

Isaac Herzog, member of the Knesset and Chairman of the Israeli Labor party, revealed that the Saudi king has been overtly influential in the election campaign that saw Netanyahu get elected.

“In March 2015, King Salman has deposited eighty million dollars to support Netanyahu’s campaign via a Syrian-Spanish person named Mohamed Eyad Kayali.

The money was deposited to a company’s account in British Virgin Islands owned by Teddy Sagi, an Israeli billionaire and businessman, who has allocated the money to fund the campaign Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu”, Herzog cited from a leaked Panama Paper.

Veterans turn on the PM for using Second World War soldiers in his bid to keep Britain in the EU

VETERANS have turned on the Prime Minister for including Second World War heroes in a ‘scaremongering’ video to try and convince Britain to stay in the EU.

Major-General Julian Thompson, who led British forces in the recapture of Port Stanley in the Falklands capital, told Mail Online: “I respect them hugely, they’re the guys who bought our freedom, they fought for us and we should respect what they think, but I'm afraid they’re wrong because the world’s moved on.”

And he blasted the PM: “I think Cameron is wrong to put around this scaremongering.

“He talks about isolationism [but] Britain was not isolationist before the Second World War – we joined a French and Russian alliance and fought the Germans and we joined it 10 years before the First World War started.

“I’m afraid Cameron has forgotten his history or was fast asleep getting his history lessons.”

AFTER KILLING AN UNARMED VET ON VIDEO AND NOT BEING FIRED, RECKLESS COP SHOOTS INTO BABY’S CRIB

Caught on surveillance video gunning down a mentally ill veteran last year, San Diego Police Officer Neal Browder is under investigation again for accidentally shooting a baby’s crib weeks after returning to duty. Although Browder does not face criminal charges for recklessly firing his service weapon into a crib, the controversial cop is facing a federal civil rights lawsuit.

While conducting a probation check on the morning of February 20, Browder and several officers entered an apartment occupied by Kimberly Espinoza, her 11-month-old son, her 54-year-old grandmother, and her uncle who was on probation. After removing Espinoza’s uncle from the residence, Browder and another officer ordered the family into the living room before searching their bedrooms.

Entering Espinoza’s bedroom with his gun drawn, Browder suddenly fired a bullet into her son’s crib for no reason.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If this is how San Diego cops interpret "to protect and serve",do not go there.

IF you are planning an event, and San Diego was on your list for a Conference or Symposium, take that city off your list, and please inform Mayor Kevin Faulconer of why you made your decision to take San Diego off your list.

If you live in San Diego, and can do so, move out of the city, again informing Mayor Faulconer of why you made your decision.

Because it is only when a city has endured enough present and potential future economic pain, that the attitude of police who believe that this is perfectly acceptable behaviour, will change.

When They Killed JFK They Killed America — Paul Craig Roberts

In the JFK administration I was a White House Fellow. In those days it was a much larger program than the small insider program it later became. President Kennedy’s intention was to involve many young Americans in government in order to keep idealism alive as a counter to the material interests of lobby groups. I don’t know if the program still exists. If it does, the idealism that was its purpose is long gone.

President John F. Kennedy was a classy president. In my lifetime there has not been another like him. Indeed, today he would be impossible.

European Parliament Orders MEP To Take Down A Video About His Attempt To Visit The 'Reading Room' For Trade Documents

And it's been standard practice in the US that if a politician does want to see the documents, they can't bring anything with them (not just no staff, but no electronics, no way to write anything down). They can just "read and retain." The EU has been following the US's lead on this, with special "reading rooms" for elected officials where someone watches over their every move. Again, they're not allowed any electronics. They are allowed a pen and are given paper to write on, which is a modest improvement on the USTR's system, but still ridiculous.

A Member of the European Parliament, Luke 'Ming' Flanagan, decided that he was going to go have a look for himself, and had someone film his attempt:

Britain’s Labour Party in an “All-out McCarthyism against Outspoken Critics of Israel in its Ranks”

It has been widely reported that the Labour party has suspended (at the latest count) 19 activists – a tiny fraction of its more than 400,000 members. But aside from Naz Shah and Ken Livingstone (see my observations about their treatment here) there has been almost no serious coverage of who these people are and what they have supposedly done wrong.

One of the earliest casualties was Tony Greenstein, a Jewish anti-Zionist who, as well as being a fervent supporter of Palestinian rights, has been a vociferous campaigner against Holocaust denial and anti-semitism. He has not even been told the grounds for his suspension.

Jack Yantis Killer Responds To Secret Police Memo

Brian Wood, one of the two Adams County, Idaho Deputies who killed rancher Jack Yantis on November 1, 2015, has responded to the leak of the secret police memo which painted him a bad light. Wood claims "The man who fabricated the information in the law enforcement bulletin lost his job a couple weeks later." Wood does not name the man or even attempt to prove his claim. Even if the man did indeed "lose his job," it's far-fetched that the unnamed mystery man lost his job as a result of the ATL (attempt to locate) memo. The Ada County Idaho sheriff, in response to the leak, certainly never said that anything in the memo was untrue. Matter of fact, Wood's own boss, Sheriff Ryan Zollman, said "Yes, that was back in January" and that "I think Deputy Wood is doing much better now."

The United States of the 21st Century is the most dangerous, destructive, and psychopathically vicious rogue state in Earth’s recorded history. Moreover, this conclusion is obvious in Emperor’s New Clothes clarity for anyone caring to look at objective and easily verifiable facts.

Americans who favor the Left and Right political parties only do so because they don’t recognize:

Egyptian court recommends death penalty for journalists, Mursi verdict postponed

An Egyptian court on Saturday recommended the death penalty for three journalists and three others charged with endangering national security by leaking state secrets to Qatar, in a ruling condemned by the Doha-based Al Jazeera channel as shocking.

Jordanian national Alaa Omar Sablan and Ibrahim Mohammed Helal, who both work for Al Jazeera, and Asmaa Al Khateeb, a reporter for Rassd, a pro-Muslim Brotherhood news network, were sentenced in absentia. They can appeal.

The sentence is the latest since a crackdown on the Muslim Brotherhood after an army takeover stripped former president Mohammed Mursi of power in 2013 following mass protests against his rule.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Dammit; when are these people going to learn that once you are under a US puppet, you STAY under a US puppet. Those #$%^ing Egyptians kicked out our puppet and put in Mursi, so we had to go in and stage a covert coup against Mursi and put a new puppet in. Think of the waste involved! Think how much cheaper it would have been if the Egyptians just learned to love their US puppet rulers like the people in .......... ummmm .......

Michael Emry, Proprietor of TVOI News Arrested

It’s with a heavy heart that I have to report that Michael Emry, Proprietor of The Voice of Idaho News, The Voice of North Idaho and The Voice of Grant County Oregon was arrested yesterday morning in John Day Oregon.

At approximately 10:30 pacific time, Michael received a phone call from the office of the RV park where they were staying. They wanted Michael to come to the office. He did – only to find that it was a ruse. The FBI was there and they arrested him as he came into the office.
The FBI then proceeded to the 5th wheel where Becky was. She said that when they told her to come out of the 5th wheel there were six FBI agents with machine guns pointed at her.

She was in her bathrobe and slippers. They made her wait outside in the cold for three house while they searched the vehicle. She said they tore everything up and took their computer hardware, disks, everything Becky uses to maintain the website and facebook pages.

Webmaster's Commentary: 


To bring you up to date...

On November 1st, 2015, Jack Yantis, an Idaho rancher, was called by the Sheriff's Office because one of his bulls had escaped the field and been struck by a car, and was wounded and aggressive. Yantis showed up with his rifle to put the bull down and was promptly shot and killed by two of the very Sheriffs whose department had requested his presence! The official story is that Yantis, with no prior trouble with the law, suddenly decided to fire at the Sheriffs rather than put down the wounded bull.

The story took a darker turn when it leaked out that Adams County Deputy Brian Wood, who killed Jack Yantis, was now himself on the run, with the Ada County, Idaho Sheriff issuing an "ATL" coupled with extreme caution on approach. According to the police memo, Brian, who had "recently reported Domestic Violence issues in the Home," had told Adams County that "If cops get involved, shots will be fired." He was also seen "collecting guns" on his sister-in-laws property and "claims to have access to explosives." So the state of Idaho was concerned enough to look into this, but Sheriff Ryan Zollman didn't see fit to inform the people.

Michael Emry did try to warn the people of Idaho, for which he has been arrested by the FBI, because in the present United States of America it is a crime to point out the faults and failings of anyone in government at any level!

Incidents like this are why I have no confidence the FBI will actually do their stated job in regard to Hillary's exposing of national secrets to foreign governments.

Israel enlists US Homeland Security to gag its own citizens online

There are two faces of Israel. One, which is presented to the world, shows a happy people in a land of contentment. The other, nowadays manifesting itself on Israeli social media, is full of discontent about the corruption and the mistreatment of citizens. Negative opinion polls soon “disappear” and are impossible to trace. This is especially the case where the issues concern the justice system, the welfare authorities or the police.

In Israel, it is a crime to “insult a public official’, even when the “insult” is nothing more than a blog or social media post questioning a decision or action. The fines are high, and those who write can also face a prison sentence of six months.

Why a European Super State Must Be Resisted

The European Union is a centralised super state trading block whose conceptual origins lie in the Third Reich of Hitler’s Nazi Germany.

The concept of ‘global trading blocks’ was already well established under Hitler’s regime, but their origins go back further: to the British Royal Society. Post British Empire colonial ambitions were hatched around the desire to form a number of global trading empires whose leadership would be essentially elitist and corporate, with banks mostly at the helm.

Here lies the origin of the ‘free trade’ concept. A trading pattern which is anything but ‘free’ due to the fact that it is designed to prevent any one country stopping any other country from resisting the import of products that it has no need or no wish for: I.E GMO maize and soya, beef raised using growth hormones or sweat shop mass produced cheap goods that undermine the ability of the blocking country to fairly trade its own quality home-made items.

Big Changes Coming for the 2020 GOP Primary

***
The RNC members have been long discussing how to further tweak the process, and one of the things that could be a welcome change is some change in the early state rotation, which has traditionally featured Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and (recently) Nevada. In particular, Nevada’s debacles in both 2012 and 2016 mean that Nevada is extremely likely to be removed from the early rotation. http://www.politico.com/story/2016/05/nevada-gop-early-state-status-22...

Democratic West Virginia County Supporting Trump

CNN Ventures Into A Majority Democratic West Virginia County, Finds Out They’re Supporting Trump

It’s no shocker that Hillary Clinton isn’t popular in West Virginia. In fact, no one from national Democratic circles, like President Obama, Nancy Pelosi etc., is popular here. Obama didn’t win a single county in the Mountain State in 2012, and the last time West Virginia went Democratic was 1996. Clinton’s remarks that she was going to put cola miners out of business did not sit well with the residents of Logan County, where Democrats outnumber Republicans. In fact, CNN was hard pressed to find really any Democrat who supported Clinton—they’re all voting for Trump.

Michelle 0bama endorses forced labor in her college commencement address

Michelle Obama Endorses Forced Labor During College Commencement Address.

First lady Michelle Obama addressed the graduates of a predominately black university that they must vote to ensure their agenda is enacted despite popular opinion and the will of the people.

It’s interesting that no press outlet is pointing out the obvious violation of civil and human rights associated with the First Lady’s position. It’s forced labor. Forcing someone to perform work against their will and in violation of their beliefs is illegal, immoral and just wrong. There is not a clause for ‘protected classes.’ Any work done against your will is forced and thus a violation.

I guess when it comes to hypocrisy, it’s okay if you’re the power broker, but the rest of the pawns have to live with the contradiction.

flashback November 6, 2012: The Gary Johnson Swindle and the Degradation of Third Party Politics

Boosting his friend George W. Bush to reporters, Gov. Gary Johnson of New Mexico recalls a conversation they had at a conference on state government: "George turns to me and says, 'What are they talking about?' I said, 'I don't know.' He said, 'You don't know a thing, do you?' And I said, 'Not one thing.' He said, 'Neither do I.' And we kind of high-fived.' - New York Times, July 28, 2000

On this degrading election day, I want to take one last look at our alleged "third choice", the huckster who supposedly "shakes up the status quo" and can "break the two-party stranglehold." Or, as he calls himself, "Perrier."

Of the 3,600 legally registered concealed carriers in the State of Rhode Island, a new bill would effectively stop any of them from legally coming to the aid of their own children in the event of a mass shooting or similarly related terrorist event.

State Of Idaho Was Googling Deputy "Brian Wood Facebook Post" On January 23, Day After Secret Cop Memo

The day after the Ada County, Idaho Sheriff issued a 'LAW ENFORCEMENT SENSITIVE' internal document known as an "ATL" - attempt to locate - Adams County Deputy Brian Wood, who killed Jack Yantis, the State of Idaho was scouring the internet for "Increasingly unstable" Brian Wood's posts. According to the police memo, Brian, who had "recently reported Domestic Violence issues in the Home," had told Adams County that "If cops get involved, shots will be fired." He was also seen "collecting guns" on his sister-in-laws property and "claims to have access to explosives." So the state of Idaho was concerned enough to look into this, but Sheriff Ryan Zollman didn't see fit to inform the people. Zollman failed to warn the community, or the Yantis family, or any of the 'Justice for Jack' supporters. Take this for what it's worth. I think it reveals a twisted mindset. The day after ominous ATL (for cops eyes only, of course), Idaho wanted to know all about the maniac's facebook posts..

Somnolent Europe, Russia, and China -- Can the world wake up? (Paul Craig Roberts)

Do Russia and China realize their extreme danger? I don’t think even Iran realizes its ongoing danger despite its close call. If Russia and China realize their danger, would the Russian government permit one-fifth of its media to be foreign owned? Does Russia understand that “foreign-owned” means CIA owned? If not, why not? If so, why does the Russian government permit its own destabilization at the hands of Washington’s intelligence service acting through foreign owned media?

The Business of War is the Cause of War

If you objectively and consistently observe the mainstream media and its interpretation of global events, its omissive and deceptive character soon becomes abundantly clear. This could hardly be called incompetence. The coverage, which is popularly called “news”, is in fact nothing but a propaganda mechanism, designed to persistently shape public opinion in favor of war. Although most prefer to believe government propaganda is a thing of the past, history shows us that it is an inherent part of any wartime society, obscuring facts and motivations in favor of those who initiate — and benefit from — war.

Aleppo Ceasefire: ‘US Ploy to Buy Time for Terrorist Reinforcements’

It’s now clearer than ever: The US are leading a dirty war, under the table, in Syria. This is the true backdrop of the stage play in Geneva, where US diplomats are providing cover and buying time for CIA and Pentagon covert operations on the ground in Syria.

What the US State Department said yesterday is very telling, and should be a clear guide to anyone about what Washington DC’s actual agenda is in Syria:

“We look to Russia… to press for the Assad regime’s compliance with this effort, and the United States will do its part with the opposition,” Wednesday’s statement said. Russia and Iran are the primary backers of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, while the United States heads a group of regional and European countries supporting the opposition to his rule.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This last week, John Kerry threatened that if Russia was unsuccessful in "persuading" Al-Assad to step down by 1 August, the US would pursue another way to end the Syrian war.

That's in a little less that 120 days from now folks, and right before November's election.

We have boots on the ground in Syria right now, as declared by President Obama; the question is, will the current administration really try a full-on invasion of Syria at that point, risking direct war with Russia?!?

I would like to say that the US government is too intelligent to do this; unfortunately, if past is prologue to the future in the Obama administration, just because a move might be the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing the US government could possibly do, under Obama's watch, is utterly no guarantee that it will not do just that.

And why?!?

I am betting that internal White House polls are demonstrating that should Trump get the Republican nomination, he will win handily over Clinton.

The Democrats would love to saddle Trump with raging wars and an imploding economy, long before inauguration day; it would be their "gift that keeps on giving", in order to "punish" him for having sparked the imagination - and respect - of so many Americans, as well as punish those Americans who will have voted for him.

A very nasty ploy?!? You bet.

Inconceivable?!? Hell, no!!

UN envoy warns that Iraq's political crisis helps extremists

The top U.N. envoy in Iraq strongly urged the country's political leaders and civil society on Friday to work together to resolve the current political deadlock, warning that the ongoing crisis and chaos are only serving the interests of Islamic State extremists.

Despite notable progress on the ground against the Islamic State group, Jan Kubis told the U.N. Security Council that "it remains a formidable and determined enemy that constantly adjusts its tactics and attack patterns." He pointed to the discovery of more than 50 mass graves in territory retaken from IS, including three found on April 19 in the soccer grounds area of Ramadi, and reports that the extremist group is using chemical weapons.

Kubis said enemies of Iraq — first and foremost IS extremists — "stand to benefit from political instability and lack of reforms."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In geopolitics, choices always have...consequences.

The choice of installing the Al-Abadi puppet government by the US government, giving no real voice whatsoever to the real needs and concerns of the Iraqi people, meant that the US government was, at its most wretchedly blind and tone-deaf, sowing the seeds of a potential popular revolution, fronted by Muqtada al Sadr.

The choices the US has here are now few and far between, and none of them good for continuing US hegemony in the region.

The US military could try a decap strike directly against Al Sadr; that would probably inflame a popular revolution, putting all of our service members in the country in horrific harm's way.

The US government's Ambassador to Iraq, Stuart Jones, could attempt to reason with the Al-Abadi government, and arm-wrestle their Parliament into making these needed reforms; but I would probably suggest that this has been tried, and failed utterly.

The US government could pull its troops completely out of Iraq; however, this would mean that the invasion and occupation of Iraq had been an horrific mistake, and neither the US military nor the US government ever does that.

At the end of the day, the US government wants to insure that Iraqi oil is only sold through approved vendors, and only in US dollars; it will do everything humanly possible to protect this, even if it means the sacrifice of the lives of hundreds more of our service members, and thousands more Iraqis.

'Fringe' Website LibertyFight.com Breaks Truth Wide Open In Leak of Secret Internal Police Memo, Sheriff's Dept. 'Frustrated'

The establishment corporate media were forced to cover the release of a secret leaked police memo yesterday, after the LibertyFight.com expose on the matter went super-viral worldwide. The article was first linked to Mike Rivero's top-rated independent news website WhatReallyHappened.com Friday morning. In response, Sheriff Ryan Zollman claimed that the memo was "old news," after hiding it from the public for nearly four months. In reality the 'Officer Safety' Notice, issued by the Ada County, Idaho Crime Analysis Unit last January, was not 'old news' to the public at all. On the contrary, it was brand new news, because no one ever told the public about it. Channel 7 TV news in Idaho ran a breaking 6PM news story on it last night. According to channel 7, the Ada County sheriff's Dept. was "frustrated" over the leak of the confidential memo, which police officers are supposedly forbidden to release.

“The UAE Foreign Ministry released a statement denouncing the Aleppo attacks and unjustified escalation, calling on the world to stop the bloodshed. The UAE fears that such an escalation may derail the way to a political solution for the Syrian crisis. The UAE Foreign Ministry called on the Syrian regime to abide by the ceasefire and facilitate the entry of humanitarian aid to besieged areas. In the light of this escalation and these gruesome scenes from Aleppo that are now making their way around the world, the UAE’s call is a cry to awaken the world’s conscience and face these crimes ...”

Gaza City: Israeli aircraft hit two Hamas targets in Gaza early Saturday in response to rocket fire, the occupation army said, as the worst flare-up of violence since a 2014 war entered a fourth day.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the rocket launch and most such fire since 2014 has been carried out by fringe Islamist groups but Israel holds Hamas responsible for all such attacks.

John Kerry Says Assad Has To Leave Syria Or Else… Or Else What???

***
Secretary of State John Kerry warned Syria’s government and its backers in Moscow and Tehran on Tuesday that they face an August deadline for starting a political transition to move President Bashar Assad out, or they risk the consequences of a new U.S. approach toward ending the 5-year-old civil war.

But given the various, unfulfilled U.S. threats throughout the Arab country’s conflict — from declaring Assad’s days “numbered” five years ago to promising military action if chemical weapons were used — it was unclear what effect Kerry’s ultimatum might have.

And it’s unlikely that the Obama administration, so long opposed to an active American combat role in Syria, would significantly boost its presence beyond the 300 special forces it has authorized thus far in the heart of a U.S. presidential election season.>>>

Baghdad ‘Shut Down’ to Prevent Friday Protests

With mass protests in Baghdad pretty much every Friday, and last weekend’s demonstrations including protesters entering the house of parliament, the Iraqi government has virtually shut the city down entirely today in an attempt to prevent such protests from taking place.

Blockades prevented traffic on most major streets in the capital, and a number of elite national police who were off fighting ISIS have been recalled to “defend” the Green Zone from the possibility of civilian protesters returning.

The protesters have been calling for anti-corruption reforms, including the installation of a new, technocrat cabinet. The prime minister nominated such a cabinet nearly a month ago, but parliament has yet to properly vote on them, with recent efforts involving fistfights among MPs and a lot of votes without proper quorums.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the US government's worst nightmare; a popular movement, supported, potentially by the resurrection of Al Sadr's Mahdi Army, with the potential of sweeping the current, US-enabled government out of power, and establishing Muqtada Al Sadr is Iraq's President.

The US government's and military's response will probably be the most massive influx of US military into Iraq that will be possible. However, with competing agendas for the US military globally, it is hard to envision how long such a popular movement can be constrained by the actions of an outside military force.

To paraphrase Sun Zsu, in order to win a war, you have to be on the moral, and right, side of history; in the case of the US government's invasion and occupation of Iraq, this was not at all the case.

"DEFENCE INDUSTRY POISED FOR BILLION DOLLAR PROFITS FROM GLOBAL RIOT ‘CONTAGION’

The next five years will see the international market for ‘riot control systems’ boom to a value of more than $5 billion at an annual growth rate of 5%, according to a new report by a global business intelligence firm.

The report forecasts a dramatic rise in civil unrest across the world, including in North America and Europe, driven by an increase in Ferguson-style incidents and “extremist attacks.”

The Middle East, North Africa and Asia-Pacific regions will also experience a persistent rise in conflicts.

This increasing trend in instability promises billions of dollars of profits for global defence firms, concludes the report, published last month by Infiniti Research Ltd., a market intelligence firm whose clients include Fortune 500 companies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF there is any possibility for you of getting out of a hyper-urban environment into an area of relative quiet, rural and not easily accessible, demanding a lot of self-reliance, now is the time to discuss it with your family, and make that transition.

The 1% will have absolutely no patience with the coming frustrations of what they consider "the great unwashed" (translation: anyone who is not filthy rich), and consequently, Federal and state governments will order police departments to put down any kind of demonstrations with extreme prejudice.

That means killing not only those leading any demonstrations, but also innocent women and children, the medically fragile, and the elderly.

Think the film "V for Vendetta", but with the tragic ending of the government successfully suppressing all of its citizens, and you have a little taste of what, unfortunately, is probably going to come to the US and much of the rest of the world.

Students at Spanish college forced to take exorcism class

A publicly funded college in Spain has told students that it is compulsory to attend a course given by a priest who is an expert in exorcisms.

The University College of Barberán and Collán (Colegio Mayor Universitario Barberán y Collán) is connected to the public research institute Complutense University of Madrid, and is also funded by Spain’s Defence Ministry.

But some of its curriculum doesn’t seem quite typical of a publicly-funded institute.

The college is requiring its 196 students - who are all members of military families - to attend a theological conference focused on "the fields related to the devil, exorcisms, being possessed and hell", according to newspaper El Diario.

A woman who answered the phone at the college told The Local that there was seminar about exorcism, but could not immediately confirm other details.

Saudi Arabia is suddenly facing a serious catastrophe — here’s why

Saudi Arabia is in serious trouble. The Binladin Group, the kingdom’s largest construction company, has terminated the employment of fifty thousand foreign workers. They have been issued exit visas, which they have refused to honor. These workers will not leave without being paid back wages. Angry with their employer, some of the workers set fire to seven of the company’s buses.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

China knows how to make a deal, and how to wait until the time is right; shall we say, with its current financial woes, Saudi Arabia may well be ripe for acquisition?!?

Obama on Trump: The presidency ‘is not a reality show’

President Barack Obama urged the U.S. media and American public on Friday to examine the “long record” of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and not get distracted by the “spectacle and the circus” aspect of the 2016 election campaign.

The Democratic president delivered an indirect swipe at the flamboyant, combative Republican primary campaign run by Trump, a former reality television star, and how media have covered it.

“It’s important for us to take seriously the statements he’s made in the past,” Obama said in remarks to reporters. “I just want to emphasize the degree to which we are in serious times and this is a really serious job.

“This is not entertainment. This is not a reality show. This is a contest for the presidency of the United States.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I find these statements from President Obama richly ironic, because before he was nominated by the Democratic Party to run for President, his "long history", before becoming a Congressional representative, was completely blocked from public investigation.

What about his life in Indonesia, his hidden college transcripts, and occasionally using the name "Barry Soetoro"?!?

What about his time at Business International Corporation, a known CIA front?!?

What about the allegedly promised "most transparent administration in history" embracing the thuggish culture of deceit and treachery against the American people, by making things like the TTIP top secret, until the text was finally leaked?!?

And there is another interesting comparison to make; Trump has succeeded in business, where Obama has failed the American people miserably at almost every turn.

We find ourselves more enmeshed with wars, and more wars coming (in an election year, no less); the economy is great for the 1%, and lousy for most of the rest of us; jobs continue to be offshored and outsourced, leaving many Americans destitute; and the Administration keeps fudging the employment figures and ignoring the 30 million who have been out of work for a long time. And Obamacare is an absolute disaster, with many providers pulling and with premiums going up sky high in November with those insurers staying in the game.

Except for the P5+1 Agreement with Iran, which still may crater at any time, this President's "legacy" will be considered a nightmare, from the long, cold gaze of history.

They Do Not Own Us As Property

In recent years, Americans have been burdened with historic expansions in government control, with a proliferation of fees, regulations, czars and bureaucracies, along with profligate spending that guarantees higher future taxes. Such dictates violate Americans’ inalienable self-ownership.

That is why Lysander Spooner, born January 19, deserves renewed attention. Spooner laid out why our natural right of self-ownership, combined with its implied right to enter voluntary arrangements, made government coercion of peaceful people illegitimate. Since we are rapidly accelerating away from that moral standard, we need to rediscover Spooner’s vision. In particular, his 1870 No Treason illuminates our current situation:

Hamas and Israel Trade Blows in Gaza During Worst Week of Violence Since 2014

By Avi Asher-Schapiro
For much of the last week, Israel and the militant Palestinian group Hamas have been trading blows: Israeli warplanes and tanks have been firing into the densely populated Gaza strip, while Palestinian fighters lob mortars at Israeli troops — it's the sharpest uptick in hostilities since Israel's 2014 invasion of Gaza.

The escalation of violence comes as Israeli soldiers crossed into Gaza on Wednesday as part of an operation the army says will root out and destroy underground tunnels that lead into Israel.

The frontier between Israel and Gaza has been mostly quite for sometime and its unclear why Israel chose to move into Gaza this past week. But Israeli officials have hinted that the recent capture of Hamas member Mahmoud Atouna may have provided new intelligence the militant group's underground network.

In response to Israeli incursion into Gaza, Hamas and its allies have been firing off mortar shells at Israeli troops, though no soldiers have yet been injured in the attacks. Israel has retaliated with airstrikes and tanks shiells.

The report forecasts a dramatic rise in civil unrest across the world, including in North America and Europe, driven by an increase in Ferguson-style incidents and “extremist attacks.” The Middle East, North Africa and Asia-Pacific regions will also experience a persistent rise in conflicts.

TWO MORE MMR VACCINE WHISTLEBLOWERS: THEY’RE SUING

“The bigger the lie, the bigger the truth it is concealing. The truth is what people are afraid to accept.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

The censored film, Vaxxed (trailer), has escaped the claws of the “protectors of all truth.” It has been showing to packed houses all over the country. It relates the specific crime of scientific fraud at the CDC. A whistleblower, William Thompson, confesses that he and his CDC colleagues lied and cheated and omitted vital data, in order to give the MMR vaccine a free pass and claim it had no connection to autism—when it did have a connection.

That’s the purpose and meaning and focus of this astonishing film.

But there is more. There are other whistleblowers shining a light on the MMR (mumps, measles, rubella) vaccine. Specifically, the mumps component of the vaccine and its ineffectiveness.

IS NATO’S ISLAMIC ANCHOR HEADED FOR A COUP?

Turkey’s increasingly dictatorial president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, scored yet another domestic victory Thursday, with the resignation of Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu, his former ally who nominally holds the reins of the country.

Erdogan is now free to push for a change in the constitution that would transfer more power to himself. But this act also highlights his growing political isolation, which many believe will spell the end his career — an outcome of great concern to the US and its European allies.

Western leaders desperately need Turkey to remain stable. As a key NATO ally in a volatile region — NATO’s second-largest army, in fact — and the country that is supposed to protect Europe from another flood of refugees, a lot is riding on Turkey’s stability. But the oppressed half of the country does not share the same sentiments, and talk of a possible coup against Erdogan is growing louder.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The big question is, how does the country's military feel about the country being turned into an absolute dictatorship, under Edrogan's watch?!?

I think that this is the most critical factor to the future of political movements in Turkey.

A Need To Clear Up Clinton Questions

“Some people think they can lie and get away with it,” said former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld with feigned outrage. And, of course, he has never been held accountable for his lies, proving his dictum true.

The question today is: Will former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s Teflon coat be as impermeable to deep scratches as Rumsfeld’s has proven to be?

With the “mainstream media” by and large giving Hillary Clinton a pass on her past, few Americans realize how many Pinocchio faces need to be tacked onto many of her statements. Clinton is said to be “unquestionably” the frontrunner for the Democratic nomination, essentially the presumptive nominee. That is unquestionably true – but only because she has not been questioned with much rigor at all. And on those few occasions when she has been asked hard questions, she has often ducked them.

Play the Lottery, Vote, What’s the Difference?

Think about it for a moment. The state government runs a gambling system that is pretty much a gigantic money-making enterprise. Plus, they get to tax the winnings! Man, they get some of it right back! They also often dole out the big winnings in yearly payments, probably so you can’t abscond the country with it all. But everyone I know that has played this regime rip-off has never won so much as ten bucks but has lost cash up into the hundreds of dollars. I tend to think the guy who wins the jackpot is probably a government shill to begin with. That’s how most gambling scams work and the government ought to know since they run the biggest one called “elections”.

Should You Be Scared of Gold Confiscation?

Buy low, sell high only works for those who buy low.

Somewhere in everyone’s buying decision is rebellion against government lunacy. So, what’s the plan if government outlaws that defiance?...

Outrage erupts at Paris police's 'brutal' search of triple-amputee man at train station (VIDEO)

The French public have exploded in anger after a video was posted online showing a man with no legs and only one arm sitting on a train platform, with his prosthetic legs scattered around him after being searched by police.
The footage shot at Paris Gare de Lyon railway station was posted on Facebook by Jean-Didier Bakekolo, who said he witnessed the May 2 incident.

The video starts with police officers walking away from the amputee who is sitting on the floor with his prosthetic legs removed.

“Officer, officer, we need you. Officer, turn back please. This is humiliation, it is not normal,” Bakekolo is heard shouting to the officers. But they don’t turn back.

Lawmakers waging “McCarthyite attack on right to boycott,” legal groups warn, as Israel BDS movement grows

Activist groups are pushing back against lawmakers’ attempt to punish Americans who boycott Israel and other U.S. allies.

Pending legislation in dozens of states around the country, legal groups warn, would make “blacklists” of organizations and individuals that endorse boycotts like those organized in order to combat U.S.-backed apartheid in South Africa.

Legal experts have blasted the anti-boycott campaign as “21st-century McCarthyism,” and the National Lawyers Guild and Center for Constitutional Rights argue anti-boycott bills are an attack on the freedom of speech and likely unconstitutional.

All Hell Breaks Loose In Jack Yantis Case: Idaho Law Enforcement Issues *USE EXTREME CAUTION* Statewide Alert For Deputy Who Killed Jack Yantis

According To The Law Enforcement Alert, Deputy Brian Wood Has Access To Explosives, Was Involved in Domestic Violence, 'Has Become Increasingly Unstable,' Is Separated from wife, and Has Frightened His In-Laws, who have requested increased police patrol of their home. Wood told Adams County Sheriff Office Adams "If cops get involved, shots will be fired." No one in local or state law enforcement notified the Yantis family of this danger. Adams County Sheriff Ryan Zollman, who has known about this alert since January 22, continues to defend Wood and said just last week that he would rehire Wood if he is cleared of charges in the killing of 62-year-old Jack. Zollman faces a challenger, retired lawman Tom Watts, in the election for sheriff this November.

Aleppo Cease-Fire: In US talk Of Syria Deadlines, Russia Hears An 'Or Else'

***
The US, and the rebel groups it backs, say they are frustrated over the lack of movement in the Geneva peace talks: in particular, no clear signs of a political transition that would remove the regime of Bashar al-Assad. Secretary of State John Kerry said this week that if the process leading to Mr. Assad's removal is not on track by the negotiated deadline of August 1, the US could adopt a "new approach" to the conflict. That could mean supplying rebel forces with sophisticated anti-tank and anti-aircraft weapons, which could effectively turn the Syrian conflict into a proxy war between Russia and the US.

Russian experts say that implied threat is calculated to remind the Kremlin of the Soviet Union's war in Afghanistan three decades ago. Then, the US helped turn the tide of battle against the Soviets by supplying rebel forces with shoulder-launched Stinger anti-aircraft missiles.

"Perhaps this threat is being made to assuage US allies like Turkey and Saudi Arabia, who really would like to see the US jump in and support a total war to remove Assad," says Fyodor Lukyanov, editor of Russia in Global Affairs, a leading Moscow-based foreign policy journal.

Remember That "Taxation Without Representation" Thing? It's Happening Again

Everybody remembers learning about one of the central rallying cries of the American Revolution: “No taxation without representation!” Yes, the settlers in early America thought the idea of being forced to pay taxes without having a say in the decision-making of their overlords was very problematic.

In particular, the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back was a small tax on tea imports on the colonies, who did not have representation in the British parliament; this led to the infamous Boston Tea Party. Seems pretty minuscule compared to today’s 74,608-page tax code, right? Fortunately for modern-day Americans, the founding fathers fixed that problem after they kicked the crown to the curb… except they didn’t.

Oops.

What I’m telling you is that taxation without representation persists today, and that it’s even worse now than when it sparked a revolution.

Judicial Watch Lawsuit Uncovers More Hillary Clinton Emails Withheld from State Department

Judicial Watch today released new State Department emails (one batch of 103 pages, the second of 138 pages) that again appear to contradict statements by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that, “as far as she knew,” all of her government emails were turned over to the State Department and that she did not use her clintonemail.com system until March 18, 2009.

Judicial Watch recently released Clinton State Department emails dating from February 2009 that also call into question her statements about her emails.

The documents were obtained by Judicial Watch in response a court order in a May 5,2015, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed against the State Department, after it failed to respond to a March 18 FOIA request (Judicial Watch, Inc. v.

But by calling out the Fed’s shenanigans and demonstrating a much firmer grasp of the threat it poses to American families, Donald Trump has articulated a better understanding of the true causes of Sanders’s “rigged economy.” A challenge to the monetary policy status quo is a much bigger threat to Wall Street than anything Sanders has proposed.

US Change of Command in Europe Signals Escalation of Anti-Russia Threats

Washington used this week’s change of command of its European military forces as an opportunity to further escalate US military threats against Russia.

Speaking at the ceremony at the US European Command (EUCOM) headquarters in Germany Tuesday in which outgoing commander Gen. Philip Breedlove handed the reins to his successor, Gen. Curtis Scaparrotti, US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter declared that the Pentagon had to “prioritize deterrence” against Russia and accused Moscow of “nuclear saber-rattling.”

Carter reiterated the Pentagon’s plans to deploy an American armored brigade combat team near the Russian border “on a rotational but persistently present basis.” He also pointed to the Obama administration’s quadrupling of funding for the European Reassurance Initiative to $3.4 billion, which he said would “increase the amount of war fighting equipment, as well as the number of US forces” deployed in Eastern Europe.

Syria Redux: U.S. Government supplied 10 Million rounds of ammo, 10,000 Enfield Rifles, military planes & tanks to Slaughter tens of thousands of Mexican Freedom Fighters

Everyone knows that the U.S, Israel & their allies fund, arm, protect, and created ISIS, who kills untold numbers of Christians and others. The U.S. government has been doing this for centuries. This is a classic article about the 'Cristero War' in Mexico, which took place in the 1920s and 1930s. Even Former Mexican President Vicente Fox admits that the freemasonic-led government in Mexico had outlawed Catholicism, and the rebel groups of freedom fighters, called the Cristeros, took up arms against their corrupt government. Their battle cry was Viva Cristo Rey!", which means "Long Live Christ the King."

A New Digital Cash System Was Just Unveiled At A Secret Meeting For Bankers In New York

Last month, a “secret meeting” that involved more than 100 executives from some of the biggest financial institutions in the United States was held in New York City. During this “secret meeting“, a company known as “Chain” unveiled a technology that transforms U.S. dollars into “pure digital assets”. Reportedly, there were representatives from Nasdaq, Citigroup, Visa, Fidelity, Fiserv and Pfizer in the room, and Chain also claims to be partnering with Capital One, State Street, and First Data. This “revolutionary” technology is intended to completely change the way that we use money, and it would represent a major step toward a cashless society. But if this new digital cash system is going to be so good for society, why was it unveiled during a secret meeting for Wall Street bankers?

The visit of Vladimir Plahotniuc (the infamous Moldavian oligarch and mafia boss - Katehon) to the US and the fuss over the use of military equipment for the May 9 parade in the center of Chisinau, which is meant to irritate the Russian side, do not appear to be coincidences.

Victoria Nuland’s appearance alongside the controversial oligarch serves as a message from the world’s hegemon: Plahotniuc is and will be your master. It doesn’t matter what I think or what Moldovan citizens want as long as the White House is more concerned with its military games in Eastern Europe. But what does Plahotniuc want? We can assume that this figure of Moldovan politics is to become no more nor less than the president of Moldova.

Record Gun Sales 12 Months Straight

This April saw the most gun-related background checks of any April on record, making it the 12th month in a row to achieve a high water mark for gun sales. The FBI ran 2,145,865 checks through the National Instant Background Check System last month, according to the agency’s records. That represents more than a 400,000 increase over the previous record set in April 2014. Though the numbers represent the best April on record, the month also saw the fewest checks of any month thus far in 2016.

An Inconvenient Review: After 10 Years Al Gore’s Film Is Still Alarmingly Inaccurate (with poll)

It’s been nearly one decade since former Vice President Al Gore released his film “An Inconvenient Truth.” It sent shockwaves through American politics and emboldened environmental activists to push for more regulations on American businesses.

Regulators are quietly killing the economy

American businesses say they’re being strangled by regulations. Yet federal regulators continue to pile on more costly new rules every day— and in many cases, they do so without regard to proper procedure. That’s according to a new analysis out from the American Action Forum, which found that the Obama administration has a penchant for pushing through new major regulations without giving citizens and businesses a chance to protest.

Big Banks Just Claimed A Constitutional Right To A Taxpayer Subsidy

The top lobbyist for the American Bankers Association wrote a letter to the Fed last week calling the subsidy cuts “an unconstitutional taking of member banks’ property without compensation.”

“The government’s actions ... amount to a regulatory taking of member banks’ property,” ABA President and CEO Rob Nichols wrote.

You read that correctly. A bank lobbyist argued that banks have a constitutional right to free money from the government.

And here is where that legal personhood for corporations comes back to haunt the government!

Half of immigrant-led households collect welfare as admission rules go unenforced

Immigrants are supposed to be beneficial to the U.S. — so much so that federal law requires them to prove they won’t end up on the public dole if they are legally admitted. But it’s a stricture honored more in the breach than in compliance, according to statistics obtained by the Federation for American Immigration Reform, which found that of the millions of legal immigrants living in the U.S. and collecting welfare or other public benefits, only a single person was kicked out of the country over the last three years for becoming a public burden.

Israel settlement construction should keep going: Trump

I gotta bad feeling!

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump says Israel should continue construction of illegal settlements across the occupied West Bank.

Asked in an interview with the British paper Daily Mail whether there should be a pause in settlement construction in the occupied territories, Trump responded: “No, I don't think there should be a pause.”

Trump said the settlement construction must “keep going” and “keep moving forward,” because Palestinians fired “thousands of missiles” at Israel.

The 9 worst predictions about Trump’s rise to the top

Long before Donald Trump descended the grand escalator at Trump Tower to declare his candidacy for the Republican presidential nomination last June, conservative pundits and non-partisan clairvoyants alike had laughed off the possibility of the real-estate mogul turned reality TV star ascending to the party's pinnacle, joining the ranks of Ronald Reagan, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln. (And, to be fair, Mitt Romney, Alf Landon and John C. Frémont.) And for months, as Trump gained droves of followers and delegates, their laughter continued. They're not laughing Wednesday.

European Union Accused of 'Schizophrenia' Over Greek Bailout Conditions

A group of eight European lawmakers have said that the third Greek bailout conditions - which call for Athens to impose deep austerity measures of its people - reflects the "schizophrenia" and "absurd strategy" of its creditors.

As part of its third bailout agreement with its creditors — the European Commission, the European Central Bank, (ECB) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), known collectively as the 'Troika' — Greece has been forced to raise taxes, improve tax collection, cut state spending and impose severe changes to its state benefit system, in return for bailout money.

EU was designed to be United States of Europe

EU was designed to be United States of Europe, Brussels founder claims in shock interview
THE European Union was created in order to become a "United States of Europe" according to one of the founders of the 28-member bloc.

Georges Berthoin, a surviving member of the European coal and steel commission cabinet, has revealed the initial idea of the EU was to create a closer union.

The cabinet was the first step towards a federation of Europe and set up in 1952.

But the EU was set up as the European Economic Community in 1957 and seen as a trade agreement between countries in the continent.

But Mr Berthoin has revealed the long-term plan was to create a state resembling the US.

FLASHBACK - HILLARY THE SPY? - POST THIS EVERYWHERE!

Let us start with an historical fact. Treason and betrayal by the highest levels is a common feature of history, whether it is Judas vs Jesus, Brutus vs Julius Caesar, Benedict Arnold, the Rosenbergs, Jonathan Pollard, Aldrich Ames, Robert Hanssen. It is just a fact of life. It does happen.

Back in 1996, when Bill Clinton was running for re-election, he authorized the transfer of highly sensitive technology to China. This technology had military applications and allowed China to close the gap in missile performance with the United States. The transfers were opposed and severely criticized by the Defense Department.

They’re Bringing Back Feudalism… and Nobody Seems to Notice

Today, the government knows what you watch on TV, what you read on the Internet, whom you call, and everything you do on your smart phone and computer. It has a record of every penny you’ve ever earned, saved, borrowed or spent. It knows where you’ve been, where you are and where you’re going.

All this government tracking is possible thanks to the mountain of laws and regulations that sprouted from the war on (some) drugs, the war on terror and so forth. Over the years, these schemes have incrementally destroyed privacy. Now, they’re going in for the kill.

There’s not much about your life the government doesn’t know already. The last vestiges of privacy may vanish very soon. Once that happens, governments will have almost unbreakable control over the individual.

This is exactly the opposite of how a free society works.

Their teacher – who shouldn’t even be allowed to housebreak puppies with this outlook – explained to CNN that she used this as a teaching opportunity. Unfortunately, the teaching opportunity wasn’t about the constitutional rights that were being trampled on. Nope. -- Instead, it was a more of a brainwashing opportunity that could easily have been part of the curriculum at Nazi Elementary School.

Hillary’s Campaign Caught RED HANDED – Things Just Got Worse!

This week it was confirmed: The general election will feature conservative businessman Donald J. Trump against Hillary Clinton.

But Hillary Clinton’s major obstacle is her record of criminal behavior. The FBI has a serious criminal investigation looking into her email usage and transmission of top secret documents.

Now, a bombshell report reveals just how corrupt Team Hillary is. Even as the investigation is ongoing, Hillary Clinton’s campaign made multiple payments to a company that “specializes in hard drive and document destruction.”

The transactions, captured on Hillary’s campaign finance records, show that Team Hillary is actively destroying files right now! What records? We may never know.

EU BORDER THREAT: Brussels to fine countries €250,000 for EVERY REFUGEE refused entry

The financial penalty, which would see countries who wish to retain control of their own borders fined hundreds of millions of euros, is expected to be unveiled tomorrow.

With countries including Hungary refusing to accept quotas of migrants issued by the European Union, the huge financial threat has been introduced to prevent states from choosing who to accept in their countries.

The deliberately high fine of €250,000 per asylum seeker will leave countries with no choice but to accept thousands of migrants - or face huge penalties.

Poland, for example, would be forced to pay €1.5billion if they kept their borders closed to the 6,200 migrants on their quota.

Anti-Gun Georgia Governor Deal Meets Personally with Bibi Netanyahu

Georgia Governor Nathan Deal, who vetoed a concealed carry bill yesterday, has a long history with Israel. The 73-year-old Baptist lawyer, who only switched to the Republican party after many years in office as a Democrat, went to Israel in 2014 to personally meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Deal brought along his wife and a gaggle of government slugs. He bragged that in only one year since he became governor, "imports from Israel to Georgia increased by 71 percent and total trade increased by 46 percent! Israel is a vital partner in friendship! We are here to bolster our ties as we celebrate Georgia’s 20th year in the Israeli market and our long-standing commitment to the country,” Deal said on his Israel trip, as he made deals.
