5 ex-U.S. ambassadors to Israel back Iran deal

Five former U.S. ambassadors to Israel sent a letter to Congress in favor of the Iran nuclear deal.

James Cunningham, William Harrop, Daniel Kurtzer, Thomas Pickering and Edward Walker Jr. signed the letter, along with R. Nicholas Burns, former undersecretary of state for political affairs and ambassador to NATO, and Frank Wisner, former undersecretary of state for international security affairs and undersecretary of defense for policy, the Times of Israel reported.

“No agreement between multiple parties can be perfect or without risks,” the letter states. “We believe that without this agreement, however, the risks will be much higher for the United States and Israel. We see no fatal flaws that should call for the rejection of this agreement and have not heard any viable alternatives from those who oppose the implementation” of the deal.

Swiss army makes incursion into France for water for cattle

Swiss army helicopters have crossed the Franco-Swiss border in an unexpected incursion — to help thirsty Swiss cows.

The aerial operation to scoop up water caught authorities responsible for Rousses Lake in the Jura mountains by surprise last Thursday. The helicopters also startled swimmers and fishermen enjoying the beaches of the lake in eastern France.

Christophe Mathez, deputy mayor of the Les Rousses commune, said officials had "no idea this operation would occur" — and that the Swiss neither requested authorization or nor warned before descending.

Daily Telegraph Scaremongering: Putin Waving 'NUCLEAR Sabre' at NATO

Accusing Russia of warmongering, while portraying Putin as someone worse than Hitler, or surrounding Russia with dodgy ABM shields and tanks, is nothing new.

Indeed, bashing Russia for having re-incorporated Crimea into itself after a popular vote, while being busily engaged in funding, aiding and abetting a mob-led putsch against an elected government, is the sort of thing the ‘West’ does too. However, it would be difficult to sink any lower than a recent Daily Telegraph article, which takes the demonisation of Putin and Russia to a whole new level.

We are told that Putin has become so “unpredictable”’ that not even the ‘geniuses’ from NATO could understand his “increasingly aggressive rhetoric”. By “aggressive rhetoric” refers to statements made by Putin and some Russian ambassadors, whose aim was to remind NATO that Russia was no Iraq, Lybia, Serbia or Afghanistan, but a nuclear-armed Great Power, prepared to defend her borders and interests.

Majority Of Americans Now See Guns As The Solution To Mass Shootings

Obama failed: in the aftermath of the 2012 Newtown, CT school massacre which left 26 unarmed, defenseless people dead, the president pushed as hard as he could to pass legislation that would enact strict gun control and further limit the applicability of the Second Amendment. Not only did he not succeed, but according to a 2014 Pew Research Poll there has been a 9% rise in the number of Americans who think gun ownership could "protect people from becoming victims of crime."

New Legislation Would Place Breathalyzers in All New Cars

As time goes on, cars are becoming less of a symbol of freedom and status, and more like automated golf carts that coddle their drivers. Every other year they add more features that take the driver’s ability out of the loop, and track the whereabouts of said driver, with the ultimate endgame being a car that simply drives itself, that can be stopped remotely, that you can’t modify, and you probably won’t even own. In the name of “safety,” these machines are no longer being built as an expression of your freedom to travel and your standard of living.

The 1 percent’s twisted games: How they’re distorting reality and diluting democracy

What would America look like if donors didn’t rule the world? It’s an interesting question and one worth pondering as the 2016 Presidential campaigns kick off. Available data reveals that donors not only have disproportionate influence over politics, but that influence is wielded largely to keep issues that would benefit the working and middle classes off of the table.

Do donors really rule the world? Recent research suggests that indeed they do. Three political scientists recently discovered that a 1 percent increase in donor support for a policy leads to a 1 percent increase in the probability the president supports the policy, if the president and donor are in the same party. On the other hand, they find no similar effect from general public opinion on presidential policies.

Transhumanist Candidate Wants “Brain Implants to Manage Violent Actions of Prisoners”… And Society

Zoltan Istvan, presidential candidate for the Transhumanist Party, thinks that prisoners would be better motivated to obey the law if the death penalty were abolished, and it be replaced by implanting a surveillance brain chip that notify the law and can even deploy a “tranquiliser triggered to block violent behavior.”

Of course, once it becomes legal to control the brains of one sector of society (convicted criminals), the rest of society may follow, each with their own rationales and justifications that make using spy chips inside the brain somehow acceptable.

(New videos added) GERMANY: Chancellor Angela Merkel punishes anti-Muslim immigration protesters of Dresden by dumping 2,000 Muslim squatters into their city park

Dresden residents woke up to find their city turned into a squatter/jihadist camp for 2,000 North African & Middle Eastern MUSLIM illegal aliens. The German city which dared to stand up to its government’s policy of accepting Islamization and massive MUSLIM immigration appears to have been punished for its dissent by the zero-notice imposition of a MUSLIM invader camp in a Dresden city park.

Israeli Soldiers Shot Hundreds of Palestinian Children with Live Ammunition: The Devastating Impact of Life After an Injury

“Before I was shot I did not bother anyone or get angry with anybody,” says Basel Kamal Safi from Deir Ammar refugee camp, near Ramallah in the occupied West Bank.

He was just 17 when an Israeli soldier shot him with live ammunition.

“Now I get angry because of the pain, especially when someone accidentally touches my injury,” he says in the short video below.

It is one of two videos published recently by Defense for Children International–Palestine (DCI-Palestine), highlighting the experiences of children shot by Israeli occupation forces with live ammunition.

Israel Sees Nazism in Mirror it Mistakes for Window

Israel is trying to expel the population of a village for the crime of not being Jewish, the same crime for which Israel bombs the people of Gaza for a month or so every few years and blockades them in between these bursts of violence.

Meanwhile, Mike Huckabee declares that making peace with Iran amounts to marching Israelis “to the door of the oven.”

Guess which of the two stories will get more coverage!

Webmaster's Commentary:

Filmmakers fighting “Happy Birthday” copyright find their “smoking gun”

It's been two years since filmmakers making a documentary about the song "Happy Birthday" filed a lawsuit claiming that the song shouldn't be under copyright. Now, they have filed (PDF) what they say is "proverbial smoking-gun evidence" that should cause the judge to rule in their favor.

The "smoking gun" is a 1927 version of the "Happy Birthday" lyrics, predating Warner/Chappell's 1935 copyright by eight years. That 1927 songbook, along with other versions located through the plaintiffs' investigations, "conclusively prove that any copyright that may have existed for the song itself... expired decades ago."

Milk firm may be flouting EU rules on trade with Israel’s settlements

An Israeli milk company may be sidestepping EU restrictions on dairy imports from Jewish-only settlements in the occupied West Bank.

New research demonstrates that Tnuva, a leading Israeli food firm, is processing milk from settlements that violate international law.

Who Profits?, a group monitoring the occupation, has filmed trucks collecting milk from the West Bank and bringing it to a Tnuva factory in Rehovot, a city inside present-day Israel.

As Tnuva exports to the EU, the evidence raises questions about whether it is breaching the Union’s rules.

NBA players on anti-BDS propaganda tour to Israel

In an interview with The Electronic Intifada today, Zirin said that the point of the basketball players’ tour “is very explicit” – to fight the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement.

The tour was organized in part by Israeli NBA player Omri Casspi, who has started a foundation intended not to bolster youth programs in the US, as other athletes might do, but rather to fight BDS and promote Israel’s image.

Anti-Palestinian extremist and major Republican Party bankroller Sheldon Adelson flew the group out on his private jumbo jet.

Christian community to be divided by new section of Israel’s wall

The Israeli high court ruled this month that the military can begin construction on a segment of Israel’s wall in the West Bank that will divide land belonging to the town of Beit Jala.

The news shocked residents who believed that a high court ruling in April this year blocked construction in that area while the army was ordered to find a less disruptive route.

If built as originally planned, the wall would have cut off the Cremisan Salesian monastery and convent from the rest of the Beit Jala community.

With this latest ruling, construction will proceed with only minor changes — still dividing the land while carving out a small enclave to keep the religious sites accessible.

Microsoft plays whack-a-mole with Windows 10 bugs – with just TWO days left on the clock

A number of nagging bugs have cropped up in the last few days that have some Windows 10 testers scratching their heads at just how an OS this raw can be considered production-ready.

In one case, testers who tried to uninstall programs using the Control Panel – the customary Windows 8.1 method – instead of the newer Settings->System->Apps & features method, Windows Explorer would crash and immediately restart.

Another reported Explorer crash is triggered whenever you try to enable or disable an active network connection.

Microsoft pushed out patches for these bugs on Monday. But given that the bugs didn't exist until Redmond shipped another recent set of fixes, it's more evidence that making software updates mandatory could backfire on the software giant.

Questions about gender identity and sexual orientation have been added to admissions applications used by the University of California system, including no less than six choices for students when checking off their “gender identity.”

One new question posed to those seeking admittance to the system – which educates 233,000 students enrolled in 10 campuses statewide – is “How do you describe yourself? (Mark one answer).”

The choices are: “male; female; trans male/trans man; trans female/trans woman; gender queer/gender non-conforming; and different identity.”

Gawker Fires Bill Arkin

But here’s the truth: The goods on Geithner were so good, the story almost wrote itself. That’s exactly the same that I’ve experienced working for network television or the mainstream media and is commentary on our frenzied society. But it is not unique; not even to new media. And it all happened on a Friday afternoon, including the throat clearing and cowardly call I got telling me to take the buyout. So the next time the CIA or Pentagon puts out an unpleasant press release on a Friday, take pity: That’s how all institutions, old and “new” act. Now the Gawker management is trying to portray the corrective as some new Gawker – “20 percent nicer” or is it kinder or is it smarter, I forget – and hopefully the readers won’t notice or care and the advertisers and sponsors will return.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The story (saved HERE) involves David Geithner, brother of the former Treasury Secretary, setting up a tryst with a gay porn star. The tryst did not happen, because the porn star requested David use his influence on a problem, and David, to his credit, refused. But apparently even though there was no tryst, and David did maintain his professional integrity, the close association with the former Treasury Secretary made the story newsworthy to some. The real issue here is that someone asked Gawker management to yank the story, which they did, and ultimately some people lost their jobs. The lesson here is that corporate media on the internet still behaves like corporate media.

There’s a pattern in collapses around the world.

Ted Cruz and the politics of faith and fear: How the GOP mastered the art of exploiting scared Christians

The conference is four days of dialogue between candidates and their supporters. Posturing is predictable: Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal’s three-minute prayer after other speakers had observed only a moment of silence was followed by public testimony that he gave himself over to Christ at six years of age.

But there’s also a dynamic in which each candidate is compelled to out-Herod Herod. To be outflanked on the right is to lose ground.

Chris Christie promises a plan to deal with ISIS. Rick Santorum says that if elected he will be a wartime president.

“Last month, I was in Israel,” Santorum said. “And one of Prime Minister Netanyahu’s advisers told me, ‘Senator, you need to tell the American people that the next president the country elects will have to be a wartime president.’”

Gold & Silver Money Has Devolved Into Debt and Plastic

Eventually the gold and silver certificates disappeared and Federal Reserve Notes replaced them. The Federal Reserve Notes looked similar to gold and silver certificates, but sadly, they were nothing more than a piece of paper that represented a loan from (hence the word “note”) or obligation of the United States, issued by the Federal Reserve.

These Federal Reserve Notes passed as money because the government decreed they were legal tender, and they were backed by “the full faith and credit” (confidence) of the U.S. government. Unfortunately the notes are not money, have no intrinsic value, and are not backed by assets. They are loans to the U.S. government backed by the debts of the United States and the future taxing power of the government.

Video shows Hillary Clinton boarding private jet just hours after launching global-warming push – and she's using a FRENCH aircraft that burns 347 gallons of fuel every hour!

Just hours after Hillary Clinton unveiled her presidential campaign's push to solve global warming through an aggressive carbon-cutting plan, she sauntered up the steps of a 19-seat private jet in Des Moines, Iowa.

The aircraft, a Dassault model Falcon 900B, burns 347 gallons of fuel per hour. And like all Dassault business jets, Hillary's ride was made in France.

The Trump-esque transportation costs $5,850 per hour to rent, according to the website of Executive Fliteways, the company that owns it.

And she has used the same plane before, including on at least one trip for speeches that brought her $500,000 in fees.

The creepy reason banks want us all to have 'tap and pay' cards... even though they're a godsend to fraudsters

An experiment by Which? magazine last week demonstrated how thieves can exploit the technology to skim enough information from our cards to make large purchases without us even being aware of it.

Notionally, the biggest single transaction a thief can make on your contactless card if you lose it is £20 - the automatic limit placed on contactless purchases, which is set to rise to £30 in September. Yet the Which? researchers managed to buy a £3,000 TV set using one of the cards.

They didn’t even have to steal the card. All they needed was a standard card scanner — the type you’d use in a shop — which they bought online.

Placing this so that the wallet of an oblivious passer-by would come within a few centimetres of it, they were able to collect enough data from the card — the cardholder’s name and card number — to use it to make a hefty online purchase.

Bloke who tried to get journo killed by SWAT cops coughs to conspiracy charge

One of the individuals who swatted the home of investigative journalist Brian Krebs has pleaded guilty to a felony criminal charge.

What happens next is an armed SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics) team of cops rock up at the address, kick down doors, and possibly shoot dead the people inside. It's a rather stupid way to try to get someone you don't like killed.

John Key admits New Zealand's drugs bill will rise (through TPP)

Prime Minister John Key has admitted that New Zealand will have to pay more for medicines if it signs up to the Trans Pacific Partnership but he says this was unlikely to affect consumers.

Negotiations on the 12-nation agreement are now in their final stages, and ministers will travel to Hawaii this week to try and complete the deal.

Mr Key told reporters this morning that it was "highly probable" that drug patents would last longer under the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP), and that meant Government would have to pay for the original drug - as opposed to the cheaper generic version - for longer.

"But for consumers that won't make any difference because on subsidised drugs you pay $5 for your prescription. So the Government may incur slightly more costs there."

"Our ability to carry out that strategy is unchanged," Carter told reporters aboard his plane en route to Tel Aviv.

The Obama administration reserves the right to use military force against Iran if necessary, he added, although the nuclear deal is intended to preclude that by resolving the issue diplomatically.

Climate change skeptics may be about to lose one of their favorite arguments

There’s no doubt that growing Antarctic sea ice is a mystery in the climate system — and an anomalous, seemingly contrary indicator.

...

According to Hansen’s thinking, expanding Antarctic sea ice is precisely what you would expect to see if the Antarctic continent itself is losing a lot of ice mass from its vast ice sheet, adding to sea level rise.

The thinking goes like this: As ice shelves melt, and more inland ice slides towards the sea, a gigantic volume of cold, fresh water enters the ocean. This freshwater pulse, the researchers continue, promotes ocean “stratification,” in which a cold surface layer lies atop a subsurface warmer layer. The cold surface layer promotes more sea ice growth atop open water, while the warm lower layer sneaks beneath that ice and continues to melt submerged ice shelves, which plunge deep into the water at the fringes of the continent.

Study: People Living Near Fracking Sites Suffer Severe Health Problems

Researchers from the University of Columbia and the University of Pennsylvania wrote in a study published in PLOS ONE that those who live close to the natural oil and gas drilling sites are more likely to suffer from heart conditions, neurological illnesses, and cancer. [1]

The scientists analyzed 198,000 hospitalizations records over a four year period (from 2007 to 2011) in Northern Pennsylvania counties, categorized 25 medical scenarios, and then associated each case with its proximity to a fracking area. A larger number of hospitalizations were found in those areas where drilling takes place.

According to the researchers, there are 18 zip code areas with a well density higher than 0.79 wells per square kilometer. That means a person who lives in one of those zip codes has a 27 percent greater risk of suffering from one of the aforementioned conditions. [1]

Hillary Clinton Promises 500 Million Solar Panels If America Pretends to Vote for Her for President

All you have to do is vote for Hillary Clinton in the “Who Wants to Be the Next American Dictator?” game show America runs every four years! That’s right. It’s the one where everything’s made up and the points don’t matter. You just have to go in, and like the mark of the beast in the book of Revelation, you have to make a conscious choice to say you personally would like to allow this psychopath to run the insane asylum that used to be America.

22 percent of US children live in poverty: Report

Nearly one in four children are living in poverty in the United States, a higher percentage compared to the poverty rate during the Great Recession in the late 2000s, according to a new report by a child advocacy group.

About 22 percent of Americans kids, 18.7 million, lived in low-income households in 2013, a four percent increase since 2008, the Annie E. Casey Foundation said in a report released on Tuesday.

Data for 2014 are not yet available, but the report anticipates that the child poverty rate remains at an “unacceptably high level.”

Saudi warplanes hit allied Yemeni militants by mistake, kill 12

At least 12 militants loyal to fugitive former Yemeni President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi were killed when Saudi military aircraft mistakenly struck the positions of pro-Riyadh forces in Yemen’s southwestern province of Lahij.

Yemeni military sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Saudi fighter jets conducted airstrikes on hills overlooking the al-Anad air base near the city of al-Houta, located about 30 kilometers (20 miles) from the strategic southern port city of Aden, on Monday, leaving 12 militants killed and at least 30 others wounded.

The development came on the same day as Saudi warplanes carried out three airstrikes against al-Mesaimeer district in the same Yemeni province. There were no immediate reports of possible casualties and the extent of damage inflicted.

Yeah, a mistake. And if you believe THAT one, I have some of Saddam's nuclear weapons to sell you!

A Canadian Snowden? CSE warns of “insider threats”

The Communications Security Establishment began educating new employees and existing staff about “insider threats” in 2013, according to documents obtained by the Star.

The crackdown on “unauthorized disclosures” was tied directly to the whistleblower Snowden, who pulled back the curtain on a pervasive electronic spying apparatus in the United States and its Five Eyes partners, including CSE in Canada.

“Following the unauthorized disclosures of Canadian Navy Sub-Lieutenant Jeffrey Delisle (2012) and NSA contractor Edward Snowden (2013), CSE has intensified its efforts to tighten already stringent security,” the documents, obtained under access to information law, state.

A 62-year-old man with a gun in each hand fired at four people – including a 1-year-old boy – before a civilian with a concealed carry permit returned fire and wounded the shooter, cops told FOX19.

Thomas McCary is being held without bond on four counts of felonious assault.

IDF calling up hundreds of thousands for emergency-readiness war drills

Large-scale military drills have been launched in Israel with the aim of testing the IDF’s readiness to go into emergency mode. Hundreds of thousands of reserve soldiers are involved in testing the system.

They will all be receiving a telephone call to confirm everything is in working order, according to the General Staff’s plan for the drills, set to last for three days.

Thousands of others will be summoned to bases on short notice, according to the Jerusalem Post. An IDF source told the newspaper that this is “one of the largest telephone call-ups we’ve had in an exercise.”

“We want to ensure that the system is well-oiled and working."

Reversing The Edward Bernays Effect

America has been plagued by a powerful mind control tactic which was suggested, experimented with, and fully implemented over a century ago by a man named Edward Bernays. The time has come for Americans to come to grips with the content and theories that Bernays used to influence American history. It’s time to call out the legacy of deceit and manipulation that this man brought to American history; by doing this, only then can America begin to heal from the web of psychological damage inflicted on a nation.

This tactic of psychological manipulation, control and deceit has spawned into a world-wide media propaganda practice (which he personally developed for the CIA) that has proven venomous and destructive, and that has been directly and indirectly responsible for the death of tens of millions of people in the past century alone.

Turkey denies targeting Kurdish forces in Syria

Turkey has said its military is not targeting Syrian Kurds after Kurdish forces and a monitoring group claimed its tanks shelled Kurdish-held villages in northern Syria.

Turkey has said it is investigating the reports of shelling even as it continues to round up suspected activists of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) group as part of a double offensive.

Last week, the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell by more than 530 points. It was the biggest one week decline that we have seen so far in 2015, and some are suggesting that this could only be just the beginning.

Reince Priebus: Republican Presidential Hopefuls Shouldn't Run As Third Party Candidates

The head of the Republican Party said on Monday party candidates running for the White House in 2016 should vow not to run as independents, a move that could give Democrats the edge in the presidential race.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The GOP wants to toss Trump out but make sure he does not run as a third party candidate. Good luck on that one. The Ron Paul treatment isn't working this time out. I hope Trump is wearing his Kevlar undies, because the only option left for the establishment to get rid of him is the Robert Kennedy option!

All Barack Obama Did Was Follow Mike Huckabee's Advice On Iran

The good news here is that Iran can be brought to the table, the candidate says.

It’s not a terrorist group. It’s “a nation state seeking regional clout and playing the game of power politics we understand and can skillfully pursue.” Moreover, the United States has “valuable incentives to offer,” such as “trade and economic assistance, full diplomatic relations, and security guarantees.”

Whereas we “cannot live with al Qaeda,” the candidate concludes, “we might be able to live with a contained Iran” so long as it did not have nuclear weapons. And rest assured, the candidate writes, “Iran will not acquire nuclear weapons on my watch.”

So who is this pacifist, Neville Chamberlain reincarnate?

Why, it’s former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R).

Turkey Calls Emergency NATO Meeting; 'No-Fly Zone' On The Horizon?

As Turkey continues to bomb alleged ISIS targets in Syria and Kurdish targets in Iraq, it has now taken yet another step toward its goal of establishing a “buffer zone” and “no-fly zone” over Syria. This is because Turkey has now called an emergency NATO meeting scheduled to take place on Tuesday.

The meeting is an extraordinary act and is being justified under Article 4 of the NATO treaty.

Article 4 allows any member of NATO to “request assistance” when its “territorial integrity, political independence or security is threatened."

In regards to the scheduled meeting, NATO Secretary Jens Stoltenberg stated that "Turkey requested the meeting in view of the seriousness of the situation after the heinous terrorist attacks in recent days, and also to inform Allies of the measures it is taking. NATO Allies follow developments very closely and stand in solidarity with Turkey."

Pachauri ceases to be Teri chief

Accused of sexual harassment of a colleague, R K Pachauri ceased to be chief of The Energy and Resources Institute (Teri), within days of resuming work after a court order had allowed him to physically attend the organisation’s offices. The environmental group's governing council, meeting in Bengaluru on Thursday, announced that Pachauri would be replaced by Ajay Mathur, who is at present the director-general of the Bureau of Energy Efficiency under the power ministry.

Pachauri, who had proceeded on leave when the news of complaint broke out, in a sudden turn of events, took back charge again at the helm of Teri on July 17. But on Thursday, the governing council of Teri, which includes prominent names such as Naina Lal Kidwai, Kiran-Mazumdar Shaw and Deepak Parekh, met at Bengaluru to conclude that Mathur would replace Pachauri.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Rajendra Pachauri was the head of the United Nation's Inter-Governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) when it was promoting the global warming agenda with proven lies and fraud. Pachauri was forced to resign his IPCC post last Februady over sexual harassment charges, and has now lost his current position.

While California Governor surrenders citizens to the vaccine industry, Texas Governor fights for liberty and law

"The science is clear that vaccines dramatically protect children against a number of infectious and dangerous diseases," Brown wrote. "While it's true that no medical intervention is without risk, the evidence shows that immunization powerfully benefits and protects the community."

So much for personal liberty and freedom in California
Of course, the science is not settled, as NaturalNews editor Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, reported just recently, noting that a Washington state woman who had been vaccinated against measles actually died from the disease.

Contrast the California governing system with that of Texas, where Gov. Greg Abbott is pushing back against the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling which upheld federal Obamacare subsidies even in states that did not set up an Obamacare exchange.

Did you know about the CANCER ACT 1939?

Has anybody heard of “The Cancer Act” that was introduced in 1939?

It does appear that not many people know anything about it, yet many thousands of people have, and will continue to suffer from it’s effects.

Basically, it is a particularly restrictive and pernicious piece of legislation which prevents people from writing or speaking about the FACT that it is indeed possible to cure cancer using alternative methods.

The Cancer Act may also be the reason why many websites and blogs are now being threatened with fines of up to £1000, simply for alerting people to the very real dangers associated with conventional treatments.

UN Remains Barred From Visiting US Prisons Amid Abuse Charges

When U.S. President Barack Obama visited the El Reno Correctional Facility in Oklahoma last week to check on living conditions of prisoners incarcerated there, no one in authority could prevent him from visiting the prison.

Obama, the first sitting president to visit a federal penitentiary, said “in too many places, black boys and black men, and Latino boys and Latino men experience being treated different under the law.”

The visit itself was described as “unprecedented” and “historic.”

But the United Nations has not been as lucky as the U.S. president was. Several U.N. officials, armed with mandates from the Geneva-based Human Rights Council, have been barred from U.S. penitentiaries which are routinely accused of being steeped in a culture of violence.

The Black Lives Matter movement has another martyr, as it prepares for a national conference in Cleveland, this weekend. Sandra Bland’s murder in Texas shows, once again, that “defending one’s dignity in an encounter with the police is a crime that that can lead to a death sentence.” The emerging movement must be clear on the political nature of Bland’s death, and that only real power in the hands of the people can break the cycle of oppression.

“Authentic justice and liberation will only come when there is authentic de-colonization and revolutionary power in the hands of self-determinate peoples’ and oppressed classes and social groups.”

Picked Out a Coffin Yet? Take Ibuprofen and Die

In case you missed it: The FDA has just issued a warning on various prescription and non-prescription drugs that Americans ingest by the boatload. As it happens, these seemingly benign pain relievers can kill you even if you scrupulously follow the recommended dosage. But don’t take my word for it. Here’s a blurb from the FDA website:

FDA is strengthening an existing warning in prescription drug labels and over-the-counter (OTC) Drug Facts labels to indicate that nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) can increase the chance of a heart attack or stroke, either of which can lead to death. Those serious side effects can occur as early as the first few weeks of using an NSAID, and the risk might rise the longer people take NSAIDs. (FDA Strengthens Warning of Heart Attack and Stroke Risk for Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs, FDA website)
