The plan calls for buying radars that would enable National Guard F-16 fighter jets to spot and shoot down fast and low-flying missiles. Top generals want to network those radars with sensor-laden aerostat balloons hovering over U.S. cities and with coastal warships equipped with sensors and interceptor missiles of their own.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I look around, both locally and at the mainland, and realize, painfully clearly, that We the People are getting looted to make more bombs, weapons, and planes which will not really make this country more secure in any tangible way.

The only things which will create safety for Americans are hard, good faith negotiations with countries this government doesn't really like, to create win-win situations, and the US not mucking about in other people's countries to attain resources to which the US government has no moral claim whatsoever.

Unfortunately, these are two courses of action this government is pathologically unable to navigate, and that reality will lead to either a complete financial breakdown in this country, or a world war.

I sincerely wish I could see the outcome differently, but right now, there appears to be no middle ground here.

Flashback 1994 - "Dr. Baruch Goldstein Murders 29 And Injures 150 Muslims At Prayer In Ibrahimi Mosque"

Baruch Kappel Goldstein (December 9, 1956 – February 25, 1994) was an American born Israeli physician and mass murderer who killed 29 Muslims during Islamic prayers in the Ibrahimi Mosque (within the Cave of the Patriarchs) in Hebron in 1994.

Goldstein was a member of the Jewish fanatical organization, Jewish Defense League. After killing 29 people and wounding another 150 he was disarmed and beaten to death with a fire extinguisher.

Big Pharma responsible for another mass shooting? SC church shooter took psych drugs before attack

As CBS News reported:

Since January, Roof has been arrested twice, both at the Columbiana Mall in Columbia, S.C. According to arrest records obtained CBS News investigative producer Laura Strickler, on February 28, Roof went into a Bath and Body Works store wearing all black and asked "out of the ordinary questions," including how many associates were working, when they closed and what time they leave. ...

The officer noted that Roof was becoming increasingly nervous. He searched Roof and found "orange strips" that Roof said were "suboxone," a Schedule 3 narcotic. Roof was arrested and his 2000 Hyundai Elantra was towed.

A user of this drug on the web site MD Junction noted that her husband "became violent,smashing [sic] things and threatening me," after just a few days of coming off Suboxone.

Another poster at MD Junction tells the story of how his personality completely changed as a result of taking Suboxone.

Drug companies donated millions to California lawmakers before vaccine debate

A subplot to the vociferous debate over the student vaccination bill moving through California’s Capitol is opponents’ allegations that the effort reflects the influence of the pharmaceutical industry.

Critics of Senate Bill 277, which would eliminate the personal belief and religious exemptions for schoolchildren, accuse the measure’s supporters in the Legislature of doing the bidding of donors who make vaccines and other pharmaceuticals.

The bill’s proponents and drug companies dismiss the charge. The companies’ lobbyist filings for the first quarter of this year as well as legislative committee reports show no connection between the pharmaceutical industry and SB 277.

Passengers' lives ARE at risk from toxic fumes in cabin, coroner investigating death of BA pilot tells airline chiefs

Since 1999, the air industry has denied a link between so-called ‘fume events’ and medical problems. But a growing number of experts warn prolonged exposure is hazardous and can lead to long-term neurological and respiratory conditions, and brain tumours.

The problems are thought to arise when cabin air is drawn from the hot engines. Passengers are usually isolated from this ‘bleed air’ – but airlines accept that sometimes there is a leak and jet fuel contaminates the air with compounds called ‘organophosphates’.

In small quantities, these compounds may not be harmful – campaigners say it is most likely to create problems for frequent fliers and airline staff.

But the Dorset coroner said that if a pilot’s judgment is altered, every person on the plane may be at risk of death.

Netanyahu: Shut Down 'Palestine 48' Propaganda Channel

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, who is also acting Communications Minister, has ordered the Communication Ministry's Director General Shlomo Filber to shut down a new television station funded by the Palestinian Authority and operating in Nazareth.

“Palestine 48” is directed specifically at Israeli Arabs, broadcasting propaganda to enhance their “Palestinian identity.”

Netanyahu ordered Filber to examine the legality of the PA's funding of the station, and to examine further violations of Israeli civil and criminal law that the station is likely guilty of.

Breaking News: Israeli Arson Attack Burns Historic Lake Kinneret Catholic Church

Israeli media reports (a more bare-bones report in English) that Jewish terrorists have set fire to the historic Church of the Multiplication (of loaves and fishes) near Lake Kinneret. The building was extensively damaged though the sanctuary only received smoke damage. The Catholic Church stands in what once was the ancient village of Kfar Nahum (Capernaum), where Jesus plied his trade as a carpenter.
church of multiplication Jewish terror arson

Besides the fire, the attackers vandalized the building by scrawling graffiti derived from a major Jewish prayer that lauds Jews for worshipping God and derides non-Jews for worshiping idols. The phrase daubed on the wall was “their idols shall be destroyed.” This prayer, whose language is virulently anti-Christian, is often used by anti-Semites to argue (falsely) that Jews innately hate Christians. It appears these terrorists were seeking to make the anti-Semites point for them.

Saudis to Offer Putin a Deal He Can’t Refuse?

It is reported that Saudi Arabia has sent a delegation to Moscow for the purpose of once again attempting to lure Russia away from its current interests in the Middle East, and into line behind Riyadh and its underwriters in Washington.

However, vacillating in the past between toothless threats and absurd promises of lavish economic deals, the Saudis have accomplished only one thing in their recent string of diplomatic maneuvering, that is to telegraph immense weakness and desperation ahead of their next visit.

Is Canada Preparing for War?

Canada has made it drastically harder to apply for citizenship. The curious issue is the bottom-line concerning the military. There never was a fast track in Canada if you served in their military. All of a sudden, they are now creating a fast track if you serve in the military after increasing the time requirement by 50%. Canada never beefed up its military. This is clearly a total change in direction.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Canada is making the same mistake with their immigrants as the US is. No matter how much training you give these inductees, they lack the motivation to be effective fighters. Soldiers making war thousands of miles from home for a paycheck or a greencard are going to have a rough time against soldiers fighting for their homes and families within eyesight.

'The ultimate doomsday escape': California entrepreneur builds $1billion bunker for millionaires in German village in event of an apocalypse - and where survivors can live a year without leaving

It boasts a luxurious array of swimming pools, theaters, gyms, restaurants, custom apartments and its own helicopter service.

But at the same time, it can apparently withstand a nuclear blast, chemical agents, earthquakes, tsunamis - and virtually any other disaster or attack.

These photos show an opulent, invitation-only underground survival bunker, which is being dubbed the world's 'ultimate doomsday escape'.

The five-star Vivos Europa One shelter, in the German village of Rothenstein, was unveiled by Vivos founder and CEO, Robert Vicinio, on Friday.

It portrays a planned survival complex that is comparable to a billionaire's mansion or mega-yacht - but much bigger, and with 'life-saving' capabilities.

Although the cost per apartment remains unclear, the property is valued at around $1.1billion - meaning it will likely be available only to the super-rich.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Black church shooting in Charleston kills nine; has every sign of a deliberate plot to ignite a race war across America

When I saw the breaking news of a white man carrying out a deadly shooting in a black church in Charleston, South Carolina, I was stunned by the scale of the heinous crime. Nine victims have died, in a church, no less. My heart and prayers go out to all those individuals and families impacted by this unspeakable tragedy. It is precisely this sort of senseless violence that makes peaceful race relations increasingly difficult in America.

That may be the whole point, it turns out.

EU extends trade and investment ban on Crimea

EU governments extended for a year a ban on trade and investment with Crimea on Friday, meaning European help for Russian Black Sea oil and gas exploration and visits by European cruise ships will remain outlawed.

The measures were adopted following Russia's annexation of Ukraine's Crimea region in March last year and reinforce the EU's policy of not recognizing the annexation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One more time, and this time I will go ... real ... slow ... for the dim-witted people hired to write for the corporate media; Russia did not annex Crimea. Following the US-backed overthrow of the government of Ukraine in January 2014, Crimea VOTED to secede, as they did not want to live under a US puppet ruler (given the long and tragic history of other nations struggling under such US Juntas). Crimea had the legal right to do so under the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which grants all people the right to self-determination. Crimea then held a second election, and voted to merge with Russia. Crimea made that request and Russia accepted.

Now, we all know the presstitutes and whorespondents of the corporate media are paid liars. Following the collapse of the Sunday Times story that Russia and China had decoded Edward Snowden's files, placing intelligence assets at risk (the files were destroyed before Snowden went to Russia) one of the authors of the Sunday Times piece ducked the blame for the deception by claiming in a CNN interview that he just wrote what the government told him to write, so it wasn;t like he himself did a bad thing!

So, to all the presstitutes and whorespondents of the corporate media (and I know some of you read this web page); I know you are hired and paid to be mindless government stooges, but let's not abuse the policy!

Nearly every mass shooting incident in the last twenty years, and multiple other instances of suicide and isolated shootings all share one thing in common, and its not the weapons used.

The overwhelming evidence points to the signal largest common factor in all of these incidents is the fact that all of the perpetrators were either actively taking powerful psychotropic drugs or had been at some point in the immediate past before they committed their crimes.

BEX ALERT - Of Course It's the Guns. It's Always the Guns.

Guns amplify the racism, foster hatred, and give an easy outlet to the mentally ill. The sad part is that we know this. We know it to be true. Even the vast majority of people who cling to the belief that only guns can stop guns understand the equation. Easy access to guns means more murder.

Webmaster's Commentary: 


The fact is that 1.6 million crimes are stopped every year by Americans with legally owned firearms. I know, because when I still lived in Los Angeles, I halted a burglary of my home with a firearm. But the media doesn't report citizens who stop crime because blood and bodies make for better ratings, and the police are not interested in citizens able to protect themselves because then it underscores how useless the police actually are for anything other than writing tickets and stealing cash from innocent Americans (when they are not beating them up, tasering them, or shooting their dogs).

Ever wonder why the Shootout at the OK Corral is so famous? Because it was an unusual event. In the west, everyone wore guns, and for the most part, lived far safer lives than the citizens of the eastern industrialized cities of the same era. The image of the "wild" west in the dime novels was actually bought-and-paid-for propaganda by the owners of the eastern factories desperate to keep their workers from deserting the factory floor and seeking better lives out west.

The statistics tell the same story the world over. When law abiding citizens are disarmed, crime goes up.

In the case of the church shooting, there is an aspect the corporate media is refusing to mention, and that is that Dylann Roof, like all the other mass-shooters wagged at us by the gun-grabbers, taking prescription psychiatric medications. Two have been identified as Xanax and Suboxone, both of which has documented histories of triggering violent and erratic behavior. But the corporate media doesn't want to lose ad revenues from the big pharmaceutical corporations (America is only one of three industrialized nations that allow TV advertising of prescription medications) nor do members of Congress want to risk losing those fat campaign donations checks, so it's easier and more "politically correct" to blame the guns for chemically induced psychotic behavior! Congress actually held hearings into the link between SSRIs and violence, but declined to do anything about the problem.

I am not surprised that this articles does not have a comments section!

EU shouldn’t view itself as ‘hub of universe’ – Greek PM

Europe shouldn’t view itself as a “hub of the universe” and it has to understand that the center of world economic development is shifting to other regions, said Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, speaking at St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.

“The world differs from what it was before. We in Europe had an illusion for a long time of literally being a hub of the universe, as a center of the world and continued to see and rely only on our direct surroundings," he said.

In the meantime, Tsipras added the economic center of the planet “has already shifted” as new powers are playing a more and more “important role on an economic and geopolitical level.”

Putin: Unilateral US withdrawal from ABM treaty pushing Russia toward new arms race

Global decisions like the US pulling out of a treaty banning strategic anti-ballistic missile defenses are pushing the world towards a new Cold War, Russian President Vladimir Putin said. Military conflicts have a far lesser impact, he added.

“Not military conflicts but global decisions like the US unilateral withdrawal from the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty lead to a Cold War,” Putin said. “This more in fact pushes us to a new round of the arms race, because it changes the global security system.”

Oliver Stone: Ukrainians are suffering from US 'ideological crusade' against Russia

In response to those who took exception with his claims that the Ukrainian crisis involved “outside agitators,” Oliver Stone took to social media to advance his argument, saying that Ukrainians are the victims of a US strategy akin to Cold War 2.0.

This week, Stone stirred a political firestorm with his views on what he believed sparked the Ukrainian crisis, following a private interview with Viktor Yanukovich, the former Ukrainian president who was ousted in the February 2014 coup.

"It seems clear that the so-called ‘shooters’ who killed 14 policemen, wounded some 85 and killed 45 protesting civilians, were outside, third-party agitators,” Stone said, following his four-hour conversation with Yanukovich in Moscow. “Many witnesses, including Yanukovich and police officials, believe these foreign elements were introduced by pro-Western factions – with CIA fingerprints on it.”

The speech followed an address by the Russian President Vladimir Putin at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum. Tsipras urged the European Union to follow its own path.

"The problem we are facing is deeply rooted in the process I have described. The EU should pursue its own path. The EU should go back to its initial principals of solidarity and social justice. Ensuring strict economic measures will lead us nowhere. The so-called problem of Greece is the problem of the whole European Union," he said, according to the Guardian.

Greek journalists were 'coached' by IMF to report with pro-austerity bias – ex-envoy

The Greek authorities want to investigate alleged misconduct by a number of journalists who attended seminars organized by the IMF and were allegedly instructed to promote the organization's advice to Greece.

The accusations were voiced by Greece’s former representative to the International Monetary Fund Panagiotis Roumeliotis, who testified Tuesday in front of a special parliamentary committee on the country’s debt. Newspaper Proto Thema published excerpts from the testimony on its website.

Roumeliotis was cited as saying that he accidentally bumped into Greek journalists during a visit to Washington DC, who told him that they were attending a seminar organized by the IMF. The fund held a number of similar events in the US and in Greece with the goal of explaining its operations and apparently was spinning its work positively, he said.

EXPOSED Rand Paul's Call for a Value Added Tax (In addition to a Flat Personal Income Tax)

Much focus has been put on Rand Paul's call yesterday for a 14.5% flat personal income tax. The reporting often stops there, As in: The tax would be 14.5% across the board flat personal income tax, down from as much as 40%, but there is much more to the story, In addition, to the flat personal income tax, Rand, in his WSJ op-ed that revealed his plan, also called for a value added tax on top of the flat personal tax.
Josh Barro at NYT explains: In an op-ed in today’s Wall Street Journal, Senator Rand Paul announced his tax plan. While Herman Cain had his 9-9-9 plan, you can think of Mr. Paul’s approach as the 14.5-14.5 plan: He would replace all of toay’s federal taxes with a 14.5 percent flat personal income tax and a 14.5 percent value-added tax

Greek banks could be unable to open next week as the country’s citizens rush to withdraw cash, European Central Bank officials said last night.

Worried Greeks took out around 2billion euros (£1.4billion) from accounts between Monday and Wednesday, amid fears that the country will soon have to leave the eurozone.

Yesterday’s warning is likely to accelerate the process – leading to a run on the banks this morning.

The Most Anti-Semitic and Racist Websites of 2015

The good news about Hate websites is this: According to one source, “99% of the racist and anti-Semitic web sites that have ever existed on the Internet are no longer in existence today online.”

The webmasters of these hateful websites either gave up and moved-on, where worn down by relentless hacker attacks or had their websites shut down by their ISPs due to pressure from the ADL or SPLC.

Keep the pressure on to have these websites shut down and censored, the first amendment does not protect hate speech. Please contact the ISPs of these web sites and demand that hate speech be removed from the Internet forever.

Decades On, US Will Pay Millions to Vietnam Vets Exposed to Agent Orange

Forty years after the end of the Vietnam War, American veterans are still feeling the effects. But on Thursday, the US government agreed to increase spending on a long-standing health concern, authorizing benefits to American veterans exposed to Agent Orange.

Of the many atrocities inflicted by all parties involved in the conflict, one that has long gone under-addressed is the health effects suffered by active-duty soldiers due to their exposure to Agent Orange residue. A study released by the Institute of Medicine in January found that a number of airmen serving onboard Fairchild C-123 aircraft experience increased health problems due to the chemical agent, which was essentially poured across the jungle as a weaponized herbicide.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

After 40 years?!? Compensation and treatment should have been handled in less than 40 days, not years!!

Whatever I think of past or present wars, I want our Vets to always have the best possible medical care in the most timely manner possible.

Google Chrome Listening In To Your Room Shows The Importance Of Privacy Defense In Depth

Yesterday, news broke that Google has been stealth downloading audio listeners onto every computer that runs Chrome, and transmits audio data back to Google. Effectively, this means that Google had taken itself the right to listen to every conversation in every room that runs Chrome somewhere, without any kind of consent from the people eavesdropped on. In official statements, Google shrugged off the practice with what amounts to “we can do that”.

Chrome, Debian Linux, and the secret binary blob download riddle

"After upgrading chromium to 43, I noticed that when it is running and immediately after the machine is on-line it silently starts downloading 'Chrome Hotword Shared Module' extension, which contains a binary without source code," Yoshino wrote. "There seems no opt-out config."

Even worse for some users was the nature of the proprietary code that Chromium downloaded. It was reportedly a library that supported Google's "OK Google" voice recognition feature, which some security researchers have pointed out is a potential open door for invasion of privacy.


"Since no one really know which binaries have been downloaded there and what they actually do, and since it cannot be excluded that it was actually executed, such systems are basically to be considered compromised," Mitterer wrote to the bug report list.

Climate change alarmism is a religious belief – it's official

Sea Level Was Higher During The Medieval Warm Period

The Norman castle at Pevensey Bay is one of the most historic sites in Britain. It is built inside of a Roman wall, and was William the Conqueror’s headquarters. It was also used as a defense outpost by Brits and Americans in WWII

It is currently several miles from the sea, but at the time when the Romans and Normans built the structures, the water lapped right up to the edge of the stone. The map below shows the bay 900 years ago, and the current seashore as a dashed line.

Wall Street’s legal offensive

Recent months have seen a series of court rulings reversing penalties imposed on Wall Street in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crash and eviscerating previously existing financial regulations.

On April 3, a US appeals court upheld a December ruling overturning the conviction of two hedge fund executives on insider trading charges. The ruling laid down a novel and narrow definition of insider trading intended to make it virtually impossible to obtain convictions against people who use inside information to rig markets for their own gain.

The Fed is Now Officially in VERY Serious Trouble

In the simplest of terms, for the Fed not to be raising rates is not interesting. What IS interesting is WHY the Fed is not raising rates.

Of course there are many reasons why: the economy is not strong enough to handle it, the Fed missed its chance to raise rates in 2011-2012, etc.

However, there is only one REAL reason why rates remain so low:

Actually it’s $555 trillion reason: and they are derivatives based on interest rates.

Ex-Israeli foreign minister avoids Gaza war crimes arrest thanks to UK diplomatic immunity

Former Israeli foreign minister Tzipi Livni was granted diplomatic immunity by the British government during a visit to the UK this week to avoid possible arrest over alleged war crimes.

The Zionist Union politician was attending the Fortune Most Powerful Women International Summit in London, where she spoke on the Israeli political climate and the future of Israel and Palestine.

Livni was able to qualify for legal immunity by arranging meetings with British officials, exploiting a legal loophole that protects Israelis on official visits to the UK.

Congressman Rohrabacher: 'One-Third of Ukrainian Military Is on Oligarch's Payroll'

US Congressman from California tries to educate his colleagues on Ukraine paramilitaries:
“In the Ukrainian military, which was one-third made up of people who were not in the military, but were instead on the payroll of some oligarch,” Rohrabacher said. Rohrabacher noted he received the information while on a trip to Europe, where he met with people involved with intelligence agencies in various countries.
“They [the oligarch’s mercenaries] had heavy artillery and were indiscriminately shelling these separatists’ villages,” Rohrabacher added.
“If that coup, meaning violent overthrow of an elected government, had not happened, we would not be in this situation and the Ukrainians would have been spared this,” also US senator stated.

Russian Non-Invasion Causing Concern in European Capitals

Tensions across the Baltic States and Poland have reached fever pitch in recent days as it has become increasingly clear that the Russians have no plans whatsoever to attack any of these countries.
For the last year, Poland, Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia have been giving increasingly urgent warnings of Russian invasion and have been attempting to convince the rest of the world that it must act decisively in order to stop President Vladimir Putin carrying out his plan to recreate the Soviet Union, this time from Vladivostok to Johannesburg.
However, despite issuing repeated warnings of imminent peril, the Russians are still showing no signs of turning up and even seem to be saying that they’ve got better things to do with their time.

Putin: government understands need to maintain dollar value against ruble at certain level

"I must say that the government supports this thesis, that you have now formed," said President Putin in a reply to the request by the head of an export-oriented enterprise to support the dollar at a high level for the next 2-3 years.
President Putin said that in the recent years some currency fluctuations with the ruble have occurred, and they have been multidirectional. But "it's all in the market area," he said.
While speaking about the government's position, President Putin said that "we all understand everything but what is important is not to overdo it. The excessive weakening of the national currency has its negative components". However, the "exchange rate difference is more potent and works more efficiently than budget support" for the real, export oriented production, the president said.

Foodstuffs getting scarce in Luhansk because of Donbas blockade

Department chief of the Luhansk administration Vadim Motroshilov, who supervises the sector of services and food supply to the city, has confirmed a tendency of a narrower assortment of Ukrainian products in Luhansk because of a blockade imposed by Kiev.
"The reserve of commodities and the assortment of Ukrainian products have been shrinking, which has caused price hikes on the consumer market," Motroshilov said. "After a vegetable and fruit season began the supply of vegetables and fruit to Luhansk shops sharply dropped. Usually, vegetables and fruit were delivered from private farms in the Stanichno-Luhansk district, but neither communication nor any contacts with it, including walking routes, exist anymore," Motroshilov said.

Nobel Prize winner gets back medal bought out by Russian businessman at auction

American biologist James Watson, the outstanding researcher of the DNA has received back the Nobel Prize medal that he sold in 2014 in order to get money for scientific research.
The medal was bought out by Russian billionaire businessman Alisher Usmanov - precisely for the purpose of returning it to the great scientist.
The medal was auctioned off at Christie’s for $ 4.8 million in December 2014.
"The situation where an outstanding researcher has to sell his medal, which he received as a sign of recognition of his achievements, is totally unacceptable," Usmanov said then. "James Watson is one of the greatest biologists in history and the prize he received for discovering the structure of the DNA must belong to him.".

Massive Media Fail: Confidence In Police Twice that of News Media

For the most cynical and destructive of political reasons, led by President Obama, for more than two years now, the national media has led one dishonest hate campaign after another against American law enforcement. Nevertheless, a new Gallup poll shows that the American people still have twice the confidence in the police than they do in the news media. The institution of the presidency also polls way behind law enforcement.

Detroit’s “water affordability” plan guarantees profits to wealthy bondholders

Detroit officials have resumed their brutal policy of shutting water off to the city’s poorest and most vulnerable residents. At least 1,000 households have been shut off as of May 26 with at least 25,000 residences—or one in three city households–being targeted for possible shutoff this summer. This is in addition to more than 33,000 households that had water service terminated during the 2014 Detroit bankruptcy.

Obama Calls For Gun Control In Wake Of Charleston Church Shooting

By Brandon Turbeville

As anyone with two brain cells moving in the same direction would have been able to predict, President Barack Obama and his mouthpiece media outlets have already begun calling for more gun control in the wake of the Charleston, SC church shooting.

Before the corpses of the victims were fully cold, the local Charleston oligarchs, mainstream media, and now the President immediately took to blaming the atrocity on the availability of guns...

Webmaster addition: Just think how different the story would be if just one of those church-goers had been carrying a firearm! And we now have confirmation that Dylann Roof was taking prescription psychiatric medications.

EPA reports fracking safe - as Arlington sings the benzene blues

An Arlington fracking company has leeched 48,000 gallons of benzene solvent into the city's water supply, and doesn't call 911. It takes 24 hours and 4 attempts to plug the well, while hundreds of residents are evacuated. The EPA says water supplies are now as safe as fracking.
