TPP: Top Lobbyist Says TPP Will Probably Become Law Soon After Nov. 8th

Rufus Yerxa, the top lobbyist for the National Foreign Trade Council, told World Trade Online, on July 12th, that he believes “there is enough time and congressional support to get TPP passed during a lame-duck” session of Congress, meaning the session between November 9th and January 3rd, which would be in time for U.S. President Barack Obama to sign it into U.S. law before leaving office. (It would be done basically the way Bill Clinton deregulated Wall Street and ended AFDC — just as he exits the White House, and with overwhelming Republican support in Congress.)

Neuroscience journal confirms adverse effects of fluoride on brain development

Fluoride is commonly found in tap water thanks to a process called fluoridation – which the U.S. government has been repeatedly telling us is a safe and effective way to protect teeth from decay, according to Global Research.

But a recent study published in The Lancet, the world's most renowned medical journal, has actually classified fluoride as a neurotoxin – something which has a negative impact on brain development – alongside other extremely toxic compounds such as arsenic, lead and mercury.

Anonymous - Hillary Clinton: Root of all Corruption

Jul 18 06:51


For the claimed center fuel tank explosion to have been the initiating event that resulted in CW-504 being at the start of the debris field, then at least two of the three main wing structural elements were broken by that event, probably all three (not to mention the thinner spars inside the tank itself). The NTSB's report actually reports that the front spar and spanwise beam #3 spars were torn loose by the supposed initiating explosion.

According to my sources at Boeing, even if the rear spar was undamaged, the loss of the two forwardsupports makes the plane unflyable! The wings will fail under the loading of level flight, let alone a high G pitch up maneuver.

This makes the claim of a zoom climb of 3000 feet following the loss of the nose not only aerodynamically impossible, but structurally impossible as well.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yesterday was the anniversary of the accidental shoot-down of TWA 800 by the US Navy during tests of the Aegis-CEC system, an earlier version of which had shot down the Iranian airbus. The official story contradicts itself, claiming that what eyewitnesses thought was a missile climbing up from the surface of the ocean to hit TWA 800 was actually TWA 800 itself, zoom-climbing 3000 feet. Yet the government's own report confirms that the wings of the 747 would have already failed by that point, making it impossible for the plane to maintain level flight, let alone climb.

BEX ALERT - Why does the internet hate Hillary Clinton?

From B-E-N-G-H-A-Z-I memes to the #MoreTrustedThanHillary hashtag, the internet has plenty of hate for Hillary Clinton.

Public displays of dislike for the presumptive Democratic nominee for president are made even more possible (and creative) by the internet's fluid, remix culture. Of course, Clinton hatred has its roots in the pre-internet days. Few presidential candidates have been in the public eye for as long or held such a diverse array of roles, which is why her supporters call her the most qualified candidate to ever run for president.

(*This article must be part of that big PR campaign , that she funded with the missing Clinton Foundation 'proceeds' . )

Webmaster addition: The internet is, unlike corporate media, reporting the truth about Hillary!

Webmaster's Commentary:

Boeing went to far as to issue a statement that they were not consulted on this "simulation" and did not know where the CIA got their data.

US rejects asylum to Incirlik base commander detained for complicity in failed coup attempt

The commander of ?ncirlik Air Base, who was arrested for his role in plotting the failed military coup, sought asylum from the United States but was denied, The New York Times reported Sunday.

According to the report, Air Force Brigadier General Bekir Ercan Van approached American officials seeking asylum but was refused, a person with knowledge of the matter, who spoke anonymously because of the sensitive nature of the subject, said.

Van was detained at the key ?ncirlik Air Base used by U.S. forces and forces in the anti-DAESH coalition for raids in Syria, along with a dozen lower-ranked officers.

MH-17: Russia Convicted By Propaganda, Not Evidence

Today is the second anniversary of the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, and we still do not know the explanation.

Washington and its European vassal politicians and media instantly politicized the event: The Russians did it. End of story. After 15 months of heavy anti-Russian propaganda had imprinted the message on peoples’ minds, the Dutch Safety Board issued its inconclusive report.

By then, it was irrelevant what the report said. Everyone already knew that “the Russians did it.”

Jail for Sharing Your Netflix Password? Understanding the Law That Could Make it a Federal Crime
An overly broad court ruling exposes Americans to grave consequences for something harmless almost everyone does.

It’s become so common that it’s almost a joke. One person has a Netflix account and three other people are using it. A recent court ruling found that because of a law called the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA), using someone else’s password could be considered a federal crime with an extremely harsh punishment. Someone who violates the CFAA can face decades in prison and large fines.

One person has a Netflix account (*A Man) and three other people are using it (*His wife , his son , and his daughter ).

Coup attempt: US must prove loyalty to Turkey

In an op-ed piece published in the New York Post, Michael Rubin, a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, celebrated the coup attempt as a source of hope. Others appeared on live television to make the case that the violent overthrow of Turkey's democratically elected government would serve U.S. interests. No, we are not saying that the United States government tried to overthrow the government. But Washington will have to prove its loyalty to the Turkish people, many of whom are openly questioning the nature of Turkish-American relations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Turks are suspicious of US hand in what happened in Turkey (so am I). And in the Middle East it does not take too much convincing to make people believe that US and Western countries are behind political moves and wars in the area, because history has a long list of Western interventions in the area.

Holidaymakers' fury as British Airways' computer check-in breaks down for the FOURTH time in a month

It is also the fourth BA systems failure in a month, with similar problems on June 19, July 7 and again on July 13.

One BA source told The Sun that the new IT system could cause a 'summer of holiday chaos'.

The source added: 'The system isn't robust enough for an airport like Heathrow. It's a nightmare'.

Passengers arriving at Heathrow yesterday are confronted with new signs, that say: 'We are currently upgrading our check-in system and with more than 700 flights a day, it's a big change for us. We would like to apologise in advance if it takes longer than usual to drop your bag today.'

Phillip Schofield was among several people who poured scorn on the message, saying: 'What are you upgrading too(sic)? Windows 2.1?!!!'

Other passengers said it was 'mayhem' and said the flashy Terminal 5 'is starting to resemble a 3rd World country domestic airport.'

Speaking on Lemon's show yesterday, Sheriff Clarke asked Lemon, "When the tragedies happened in Louisiana and Minnesota, you know that twenty one black people were murdered [in black on black crime] across the United States? Was there any reporting on that?"

Lemon responded by asking him to "keep the volume down" in the name of "civility," then asked his producers to cut to commercial after Clarke told Lemon he "wished he had that message of civility for these purveyors of hate" in the Black Lives Matter movement.

Twelve Israelis Arrested By FBI, Sentenced for Conning & Bilking Elderly Victims Out of Their Life Savings

AVI AYACHE and YARON BAR, two leaders of an Israeli lottery fraud ring, were sentenced today to 13 years and 12 years in prison, respectively, on mail and wire fraud charges. All 12 members of the ring who were charged in this case have pleaded guilty. "Qualifiers" called the victims and falsely told the victims they had won a substantial cash prize, and asked them about their assets. They told the victims that to obtain the prize, they had to pay several thousands of dollars in fees and taxes. Victims who complied were typically contacted again by Shooters and induced to send additional funds, amounting to tens and sometimes hundreds of thousands of dollars. In reality, there was no lottery prize and the victims were ultimately bilked out of an estimated total of more than $8 million. The defendants even sent shipments of flowers and gift baskets to various victims in the United States in order to "congratulate" them on their purported lottery winnings.

L.A. has 46,874 people who are homeless. If we're not smart, we'll have 250,000 more

Tents in the Arroyo, sleeping bags on the beach, RVs parked on our boulevards. Heartbreaking visual manifestations of Los Angeles’ homelessness crisis are everywhere. The recent homeless count found that 46,874 people in Los Angeles County experience homelessness every night. As shocking as that number is, imagine for a moment that lined up behind each of those unsheltered human beings are five more. That’s roughly how many more Angelenos are at high risk of imminent homelessness...Because of our housing shortage, rents have gone up 28% since 2000. Over the same period, renters’ median incomes fell 8%. The result is an untenable situation: More than 250,000 households in Los Angeles pay 90% or more of their income on rent. These families are just one illness, one eviction, one car accident, or one lost job away from homelessness.

President Of The L.A. Police Protective League: Obama "Makes Me Sick"

Asked about the recent string of police shootings, the President Of The Los Angeles Police Protective League spoke out on a local TV news broadcast. Referring to President Obama's speech following the Baton Rouge shootings, Craig Lally said "it makes me sick!" He continued with a comical Freudian slip, "where's the leaders across this company, across the country?" He continues, "I wanna know what government is doing to protect cops! The fear is that we will become too militaristic. Well guess what? We need that stuff! The anchor then shows a video that the alleged Baton Rouge killer made prior to the shooting where he says protests won't help, and that "the alpha ones, we know what its gonna take" to stop police abuse. Interestingly, the black man also decries the fact, as he puts it, that when Europeans kill their oppressors, they're heroes, but when blacks do it, they're bad.

Justice department 'uses aged computer system to frustrate Foia requests'

A new lawsuit alleges that the US Department of Justice (DoJ) intentionally conducts inadequate searches of its records using a decades-old computer system when queried by citizens looking for records that should be available to the public.

Freedom of Information Act (Foia) researcher Ryan Shapiro alleges “failure by design” in the DoJ’s protocols for responding to public requests. The Foia law states that agencies must “make reasonable efforts to search for the records in electronic form or format”.

In an effort to demonstrate that the DoJ does not comply with this provision, Shapiro requested records of his own requests and ran up against the same roadblocks that stymied his progress in previous inquiries. A judge ruled in January that the FBI had acted in a manner “fundamentally at odds with the statute”.

‘US needs Erdogan as ally to put pressure on Russia,’ but will never hand over Gulen

Gulen has been living in the US in the state of Pennsylvania for many years. He is the leader of the Hizmet movement, which unites Turks who support Gulen’s ideas on Islam and democracy. American intelligence services have allegedly been keeping a close eye on him.

Daniel Patrick Welch, a writer and political analyst, argues that the cleric could also be “a patsy for US intelligence services, or working with them.”

According to Welch, there have been other reports from anti-Erdogan groups within Turkey claiming that the coup attempt was a Saudi and Gulen backed scheme “to push back against Erdogan for his recent rapprochement with Russia and proposals to normalize relations with Syria.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If Gulen has been working with CIA, then there is no way they will turn him over to Turkey, who would put him on display as proof of DC treachery. Gulen might be on the verge of a sudden illness or a serious depression, of a bad case of small-plane-itis!

CNN: Many Sanders Supporters Say ‘No Way’ They Will Support Clinton Because of Her Trust Issues

Hillary Clinton’s poor trustworthiness numbers stemming from her email scandal are “eye-popping,” a CNN panel said Sunday, and one reporter said many Bernie Sanders backers will not get behind her candidacy as a result.

The Department of Justice elected not to file charges against Clinton for mishandling classified information through her illicit private server at the State Department. However, the FBI still said she had been “extremely careless” with classified material and officially refuted her oft-repeated talking point that she never sent or received such information on her server. Comey added if Clinton had been an FBI employee and engaged in such behavior, it was possible she would be fired.

Clinton was “in a weaker position than a month ago,” CNN host John King noted, as Donald Trump has pulled effectively even with Clinton in the polls. King also quoted a CBS News / New York Times poll showing 67 percent of registered voters do not find her honest and trustworthy.

Hillary - Latest Email Reveals Global Insider Trading Connection

Hillary’s Staggering Culture of Corruption Knows No Bounds – Latest Email Reveals Global Insider Trading Connection.

Remember when Martha Stewart was nailed and jailed for insider trading?

Imagine an insider trading scheme on a scale several million times more egregious than Martha’s…

That’s exactly the scale of insider influence and corruption Hillary Clinton exercised to influence and protect her son-in-law and Goldman Sachs, one of her big Wall Street backers:

The opportunities for corruption – insider trading of the worst kind – were obvious and deeply disturbing when Hillary Clinton was secretary of state and her son-in-law went into a very specific kind of investing. And the fact that ne’er-do-well husband of Chelsea and father of two grandkids Mark Mezvinsky ended up botching his hedge fund and losing his investors’ money does not prove innocence.

Anti-Trump delegates plot convention havoc: report

Anti-Donald Trump delegates are hoping to stir up trouble for the RNC and wreak havoc on the Republican National Convention next week, The Washington Post reports.

A group of delegates opposed to their party's presumptive nominee is plotting a variety of ways to upend the convention as the nation's focus turns to Cleveland on Monday.

One Louisiana delegate told the Post that some are preparing to bog down the convention with procedural maneuvers.
Others hope to force a roll call vote, a move that would drag out proceedings and give a spotlight to any delegates hoping to embarrass Trump by voting against him while the cameras are rolling.

Several "minority reports," which detail proposals that were rejected by committees, are reportedly in the works.

‘Untrained’ soldiers to be put on front line in manpower crisis: Army recruits with basic training could face jihadis in terrorist attack

Army recruits who have yet to complete their training are to be deployed on the front line for the first time in British history because of a deepening manpower crisis, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

The shock move – which has been condemned by military experts as a sign of the ‘dire’ state of the Army – means soldiers who have had only basic training without learning more advanced skills could face armed jihadis in a terrorist attack and be placed in other life-threatening situations.

The controversial change, revealed in documents seen by The Mail on Sunday, will add up to 5,000 full-time troops and 1,800 part-time troops to the Army at a time when its numbers have dwindled to the lowest ever in modern history.

Judge: Instant Jail Term if you Criticise Migrants Again

A couple appeared before a court to answer to charges of incitement because the man had established a Facebook group that was “hostile to refugees”.
Peter M. founded a secret group called AFB (Anti Refugee Movement) about a year ago on Facebook. As a secret group, people who are not members of it would have been unable to see its content. He and his wife Melanie were administrators of the Facebook group, so both had to attend the court on charges of sedition.

The offending Facebook page’s founding statement was read out in the courtroom. Written by Peter M. it read: “The war and economic refugees are flooding our country. They bring terror, fear, sorrow. They rape our women and put our children at risk. Bring an end to it!”.

A US-based Turkish cleric accused of plotting a coup to overthrow the Ankara government has claimed President Recep Erdogan staged the rebellion himself to justify a major clampdown on opposition forces.

Webmaster addition: The cleric is connected to the CIA, and if the US was behind the coup (and Erdogan is acting like he thinks that is the case) then of course this cleric would try to protect his sponsors. It also means that the US will not extradite him to Turkey, where Erdogan would put him on public display as proof of DC treachery, and that means US/Turkey relations have just melted down.

Book Excerpt - CIA Backs a “New Ottoman Caliphate” in Eurasia

For this letter I have decided to share with you another excerpt from my book, The Lost
Hegemon: Whom the gods would destroy. It is a section dealing with the man behind the recent failed coup d’ etat attempt in Turkey to depose President Recep Erdogan. The man behind the coup is Fetullah Gülen who has been under CIA protection and running his empire in Turkey from Saylorsburg, Pennsylvania since 1998. I think this will give a useful insight into how USA “deep politics” actually works today. Notable is the utter failure of the CIA coup attempt, initiated against Erdogan just days after the Turkish President announced plans to seek a political rapprochement with Russia and Israel and even with Bashar al
Assad in Syria, a mammoth geopolitical power shift in the entire Middle East that would deal a devastating blow to the faltering US position there.

ERDOGAN’S PURGE: Islamofascist Mobs Torture and Murder in Streets of Turkey

The fall-out from last week’s failed coup d’etat in Turkey has been more gruesome than many imagined, as pro-government AKP and Muslim Brotherhood suppoters have taken to the streets to administer an ‘ISIS-like’ brand of justice, apparently, doing so on behalf of the ruling party.

Suspected mastermind in Turkey coup served as military attaché to Israel

A main suspect in the failed coup against the Turkish government formerly served as a military attaché to Israel, reports say.

General Akin Öztürk, also the former commander of Turkey's air force, was arrested on Saturday along with at least five other generals in connection to the failed coup.

From 1998 to 2000, Öztürk served in Turkey’s Tel Aviv embassy and later went on to serve as the air force commander until he stepped down last year. He retained his seat in Turkey's Supreme Military Council.

Turkey has announced that Öztürk and his alleged partners will be tried over treason charges.

Turkey Warns America: Hand Over Exiled Cleric OR ELSE

“Any country that protects Fethullah Gulen will be an enemy to Turkey,” Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim said on Saturday, naming the imam who Turkey’s president Recep Tayyip Erdo?an asserts is the mastermind behind Friday’s failed coup.

Eric Holder’s Longtime Excuse for Not Prosecuting Banks Just Crashed and Burned

ERIC HOLDER HAS long insisted that he tried really hard when he was attorney general to make criminal cases against big banks in the wake of the 2007 financial crisis. His excuse, which he made again just last month, was that Justice Department prosecutors didn’t have enough evidence to bring charges.

Many critics have long suspected that was bullshit, and that Holder, for a combination of political, self-serving, and craven reasons, held his department back.

A new, thoroughly-documented report from the House Financial Services Committee supports that theory. It recounts how career prosecutors in 2012 wanted to criminally charge the global bank HSBC for facilitating money laundering for Mexican drug lords and terrorist groups. But Holder said no.

Turkey Coup Arrests Reach 6000 - Official

Turkish Justice Minister Bekir Bozdag has said as many as 6000 have been detained since an attempted coup on Friday evening.

Reuters quotes him as telling NTV broadcaster that "the judicial process on this will continue."

On Saturday it was announced that more than 2800 soldiers had been arrested for allegedly being involved in the coup attempt, while over 2700 judges had been summarily dismissed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ironically, while Erdogan claims his return to power is restoration of democracy in Turkey...he's currently turning the country to a dictatorship after the coup.

Narcissist who threatens us all: MARK ALMOND tells how Erdogan is seen as a president who abuses office to benefit his family and cronies

The £400 million palace of Turkey’s President Erdogan is the biggest in the world. It is also a monstrosity. Thirty times the size of the White House, all the seats of government of Turkey’s Nato allies could be contained inside its vast marble halls and endless corridors.

No wonder the sprawling modernist structure is compared to the People’s Palace built by Romania’s dictator Nicolae Ceausescu. It actually looks more like a massive public lavatory.

Saddam himself would blanch at the silk wallpaper in the bathrooms, the cabinets displaying gold inlaid glasses that cost £250 each, and the 63 lifts. The carpet bill was a staggering £7.8 million.

Turkey's coup may have failed – but history shows it won’t be long before another one succeeds

Recep Tayyip Erdogan had it coming. The Turkish army was never going to remain compliant while the man who would recreate the Ottoman Empire turned his neighbours into enemies and his country into a mockery of itself. But it would be a grave mistake to assume two things: that the putting down of a military coup is a momentary matter after which the Turkish army will remain obedient to its sultan; and to regard at least 161 deaths and more than 2,839 detained in isolation from the collapse of the nation-states of the Middle East.

U.S. denies role in Turkish coup attempt, warning about accusations' harm to relations

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Saturday denied any U.S. role in Turkey's failed coup attempt, while warning about such accusations' harm to relations.

In a phone conversation with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, Kerry received an update on events in Turkey, and was told that the Turkish government remains in control of state institutions.

The phone talk was held amid Turkey's accusations of a U.S.-based cleric, Fethullah Gulen, for plotting the coup, while demanding Gulen's extradition by the U.S. government.

Kerry warned that "public insinuations or claims about any role by the United States in the failed coup attempt are utterly false and harmful to our bilateral relations," but adding that the United States would entertain an extradition request on condition that Turkey proves wrongdoing by Gulen.

If it's being officially denied ... then it MUST be true! :)

Coup in Turkey succeeded and still ongoing: Egyptian media outlets 

Despite confirmed news sources proving the failure of the military coup in Turkey, several private and state-owned Egyptian media outlets have insisted that the military coup attempt executed on Friday evening against Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an ended in success.

A number of privately owned media outlets and prominent media figures operating popular talk shows did not hesitate to show their support for the military coup in a way that clearly violates objective reporting.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Remember that there is a 'cold war' between the two countries since the Egyptians toppled Mohammad Mursi's government and Erdogan then described Egyptian government as illegal...

Which also explains Egypt's comments at the UNSC regarding the Turkish coup!

Authorities: Deadly Titusville hospital shooting 'random'

Investigators continue to search for a motive in what Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey says was an “extremely random” shooting inside Parrish Medical Center in Titusville that claimed the lives of an employee and a patient.

The hospital employee, believed to be in her 40s, and the patient, have not been identified. Both were shot in a room on the third floor, where the 210-bed hospital's birthing suites are also located.

“It doesn't appear to be any connection between the individual and the victims. It appears to be random,” Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey said during a broadcast press conference.

The suspect, who authorities said was tackled by two unarmed security guards responding to the shots, was not yet named.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Was this supposed to be another mass shooting, but it got interrupted before there were enough bodies?

“Only when people began to climb on the tanks, we understood everything,” the soldiers said, according to Hurriyet newspaper.

Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim has reported that 2,839 soldiers and officers implicated in the overnight coup attempt have been arrested.

"This Is Going To Get Very Ugly" - Former Top CIA Officer Says "Obama Has Lost Control Of The Middle East"

As the Hill reports, the decorated former CIA career officer who served in the Directorate of Operations between October 1982 and June 2005, said on Friday that Obama has lost control of the Middle East following attacks in France that left at least 84 dead. "This is going to get very, very ugly," Gary Bernsten said on Fox & Friends Friday.

"The president of the United States, as Newt Gingrich has stated, has failed in his responsibilities to defend the United States. He has lost control of the Middle East. It is in flames, and that is what he will leave when he leaves office." One can also make the argument that it is not so much Obama, as his first secretary of state, the person who in less than 4 months may be America's next president.

Blackwater Founder Erik Prince: Obama ‘Tilting Toward Islamist or Muslim Brotherhood Approach to Foreign Policy’

Blackwater founder Erik Prince told Breitbart News Saturday SiriusXM host Alex Marlow that the Obama administration “hung out to dry” the Turkey coup plotters, adding that President Obama has “been tilting toward an Islamist or Muslim Brotherhood approach to foreign policy,” so the quick support for Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an in the midst of the recent coup attempt may not be much of a surprise.

Saying Erdo?an may have goals along the lines of creating another “longterm Caliphate” or “Ottoman Empire again,” Prince believes the claims that the attempted coup by elements of the military may have been genuine in terms of their claiming to stand for democracy and liberty for the nation. He added that Erdo?an is “definitely making an Islamization” of Turkish society again.

Putin To Ban Pokemon GO From Russia Due To Links To CIA

Vladimir Putin is set to ban Pokemon GO from Russia after an internal Kremlin investigation revealed the viral augmented reality smartphone game has direct links to the CIA and wider intelligence community and is being used to secretly gather data on a colossal scale. Young people are being tricked into giving up their privacy to these intelligence agencies, according to Kremlin sources, and while playing the game they act as unwitting intelligence gatherers for the CIA. The game has an extensive list of intrusive tracking permissions, and it is these ‘fine print clauses’ that raised eyebrows in the Kremlin and sparked the ongoing investigation.

Erdogan, Putin to meet in first week of August, Turkish presidential source says

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has arranged to meet his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin within weeks, Turkish presidential sources said Sunday, Anadolu reported.

The agreement came in a telephone call from Putin in which he gave his support to Turkey following Friday’s attempted coup.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Coupled with the next article down which in which Turkey claims that men from the NATO base were part of the coup attempt, Erdogan may be blaming the US as an excuse to break free from his US puppet masters. If the US really was behind the coup (as opposed to Erdogan pulling a Reichstag Fire to consolidate power), then it has backfired horribly!

Egypt blocks UNSC condemnation of coup attempt in Turkey

The United Nations Security Council failed on Saturday to condemn the coup attempt in Turkey after Egypt objected to a statement that called on all parties to "respect the democratically elected government of Turkey," diplomats said, APA reports quoting AA.

The U.S.-drafted statement also expressed grave concern over the situation in Turkey, urged the parties to show restraint, avoid any violence or bloodshed, and called for an urgent end to the crisis and return to rule of law.

Statements by the 15-member Security council have to be agreed by consensus.

Diplomats, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Egypt argued that the U.N. Security Council was not in a position to determine whether a government had been democratically elected.

14 West Bank settler outposts to be legalized, 20 already approved'

In the last four years Israel has advanced plans to legalize 14 West Bank outposts and has approved 20 such fledgling hilltop communities, Peace Now said in a new report it issued on Monday. "The retroactive legalization of illegal outposts is a slap in the face of the Quartet," asserted Peace Now, referencing a report issued by the Quartet earlier this month on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict ... For Netanyahu to continue settlement activity in the wake of such a report, Peace Now said, is a signal to "Israel's most important allies that he is not interested in peace and two states but rather in the continuation of the occupation." Settlement activity continues unabated, it said ...

Today, some 120 years after the beginning of the Zionist experiment, the hatred between the two peoples [Israelis and Arabs] is abysmal. The conflict dominates our lives. More than half of all news stories in the media concern this conflict ...

The hatred between the two peoples seems to reach new heights all the time ...

He told readers that it would be permissible for Jewish soldiers to rape attractive Arab women...

The stock market's split personality

Something very, very weird is happening in the global markets, said Mark DeCambre at Market?Watch. "Investors typically don't buy bonds and stocks at the same time," but right now they're doing both in droves. The S&P 500 and Dow Jones indices hit record highs this week, buoyed by the U.S. economy adding an impressive 287,000 new jobs in June. But even as investors rushed to bet on stocks, they were also pouring money into the safety of bonds. As a result, the yield on the 10-year U.S. Treasury note sank to an all-time low of 1.37 percent. Usually, falling bond yields are a sign of major economic trouble ahead, signaling that anxious investors are looking for a safe haven to stash their cash. But then again, markets just hit "dizzying heights," which tends to be great news. "What gives?"

BDS victory in Mennonite Church Canada

This resolution is in part a response to the 2009 Kairos Document that was prepared by Palestinian Christians in Palestine asking their global Christian brothers and sisters to show their solidarity with them through Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions. The Mennonite resolution laments the violence in Israel and Palestine and repents its complicity in anti-Semitism and structures of colonialism that oppress Indigenous people in Canada. The resolution commits the Mennonite Church to further education on what is happening in Israel and Palestine, in addition its concluding demands are:

“We ask the Mennonite Church Canada General Board, along with regional churches, congregations, and members—to avoid investing in or supporting companies that do business with Israeli settlements and the Israel Defense Forces, and companies that are profiting from the occupation of the Palestinian territories; and

We encourage the government of Canada to support measures that put pressure on Israel (including through economic sanctions) to end the occupation and work for a just peace, in accordance with international law.”

Turkey Accuses US Of Being Behind Military Coup, Demands Extradition Of Cleric Gulen

When earlier today we reported that Turkey has closed the airspace above, and suspended all US-led air missions out of the giant Incirlik airbase (which houses some 50 US nuclear bombs), we said that there is speculation the "airbase may be held "hostage" by Ankara as a bargaining chip ahead of demands for the extradition of Erdogan's arch enemy, Fethullah Gulen, currently a resident of the state of Pennsylvania." A few hours later this was partially validated when during a televised speech, Turkish President Erdogan called on the United States to extradite Fethullah Gulen, a US-based Muslim cleric he accuses of being behind Turkey's failed coup attempt.
