Common Core education: the insane bottom line

Freedom Rider: American Hell for Yemen

The U.S.-spawned whirlwind of carnage and destruction has wrecked the societies of Iraq, Libya, Syria, Somalia and Yemen, yet most Americans feel themselves blameless. “The people, the corporate media and the political system all accept that their government has the right to intervene in the affairs of other nations and that it is always right and moral in its claims.” They behave like zombified cogs in an imperial death machine.

Roosevelt's 1937 Warning Ignored: “The nation that destroys its soil destroys itself.”

The soils are poisoned with chemical fertilizers and pesticides, and allowed to wash away from overfarming, overgrazing, and erosion. Once teeming with life, our prairies and grasslands are being turned into lifeless dust fields.

The PBS documentary “SOS: Save our Soil,” part of its Food Forward series,1 highlights a few “food rebels” who are finding innovative ways to create a more sustainable food system, including making humus compost out of grass stubble and turning chicken litter into biochar.

The top six inches of soil are the most precious yet least understood ecosystem on Earth. In order to appreciate its importance to our very survival, you first must understand the role carbon plays in maintaining the ecological balance of our entire planet.

Conventional agriculture that relies on tilling and monocrops decimates the top soil and is responsible for massive losses every year. So much so that some predict that most of the topsoil in the US will be lost in the next two generations.

US-Israel Wage War on Iran in Syria

Tony Cartalucci
Activist Post

The ongoing conflict in Syria has always been a proxy conflict aimed at Iran, as well as nearby Russia, and more distant China. As far back as 2007, two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Seymour Hersh warned in his 9-page New Yorker report “The Redirection Is the Administration’s new policy benefitting our enemies in the war on terrorism?” that a region-wide sectarian war was being engineered by the US, Saudi Arabia, and Israel – all of whom were working in concert even in 2007, to build the foundation of a sectarian militant army.

The report would cite various serving and former US officials who warned that the extremists the West was backing were “preparing for cataclysmic conflict.”

In retrospect, considering the emergence of the so-called “Islamic State” (ISIS), Hersh’s warning has turned out to be prophetic...

The Lonely Clinton Campaign

The candidacy of Ted Cruz, possible encores by Rick Perry, Mike Huckabee, and Rick Santorum, the emergence of Rand Paul, and a “center” represented by Jeb Bush, Scott Walker, Chris Christie, Marco Rubio, and even Lindsey Graham may induce Romney nostalgia for horror-struck Democrats. But it’s a race that’s bound to become ever more compelling, possibly with more candidates (Ben Carson? Carly Fiorina?), and the contenders will be sharpened in the process. They’re looking for a contender, just as the Democrats were eight years ago, when debates and primaries altered early perceptions that Clinton, or possibly Edwards, was bound to win.

Democrats, meanwhile, seem ready to cede the whole thing to Clinton

West's ties with Russia frozen after year of Ukraine conflict

Relations between the West and Russia remain at their lowest since the Cold War, on the first anniversary of the start of the Ukraine conflict. But all bridges have not yet been burned, analysts say.

Washington and Brussels have imposed sanctions as part of a sea change in ties with Moscow, while a defiant Vladimir Putin has rejected accusations of Russian involvement in the fighting.

A fragile ceasefire has now held in Ukraine since February, but Europe's relationship with Russia is stuck in the deep freeze.

Argentina threatens legal action against Britain over drilling for oil on coast of Falkland Islands

"We want the owners of the companies to be tried according to Argentine laws and international statutes.”
***
Argentina is seeking to renew a 2013 reform of a hydrocarbons law that states penalty fines and lengthy prison sentences can be levied on company executives who orchestrate the search and harvest of natural resources without permission from the government.

It was announced last month that Britain will spend £280m over the next 10 years on renewing and strengthening Falkland forces, by the Secretary of State for Defence Michael Fallon.

This declaration was fiercely slapped down by Argentine President Cristina Fernandez, who said on Thursday that Britain should focus on fighting poverty instead of increasing the amount spent on defence.

(*especially when it appears that the defense of the oil drilling operation is where Britain is going with this .)

Israeli Officials ‘Furious’ Over Iran Nuclear Deal

It’s unsurprising given the decades of hostility they’ve shown toward diplomacy in general, but Israeli officials are reacting with outrage at the announcement of a framework deal between Iran and the international community.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who has promised to do everything in his power to prevent an agreement, says that the framework “threatens Israel’s survival” by allowing Iran to keep portions of its civilian nuclear program.

Netanyahu and other officials are insisting the deal guarantees Iran will acquire nuclear weapons within the next year, though of course they have been predicting Iran would do so virtually non-stop since the Iranian revolution.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question is not what Israeli officials are "feeling", but what they are actually prepared to do to keep this deal from having a chance to survive.

We have about 90 days until the final form of the agreement is supposed to take its final shape; I have to wonder if Netanyahu is actually prepared to mount a military campaign to destroy Iran's reactors; he is just hubristic enough to believe that there will be no consequences, should he make that decision.

Or, will he try something covert, as Israel did with the USS Liberty?!? Will he order some kind of attack on an American ship, and claim it was Iran who was the culprit?!? (But seriously, folks, why in tarnation would the Iranian government and military DO something like that right now, in light of the fact that a preliminary framework for their nuclear energy program has been reached?!?

But should he do this, it would rope the US military into having to support a war against Iran.

Should that happen, Hezbollah will attack Israel from the North; Iran will counter attack, and well.... the big question at that point will be, what will Russia do?!?

I would like to remind Netanyahu that Iran and and Russia have signed a mutual military accord earlier this year; so a war against Iran will most probably be construed as a war against Russia.

I would also like to remind Netanyahu that Iran contains a population of one of the oldest-practicing Jewish communities in the world; any attack on Iran would mean that many of his Jewish brothers and sisters may well get killed in such an attack.

US Increases Involvement in Saudi War Against Yemen

In a move that Pentagon officials are describing as just a “deepening” of their military involvement in the Saudi attack on Yemen, they have announced military aircraft from Centcom will begin aerial refueling operations for Saudi planes currently bombing the nation.

The announcement couldn’t be worse timed, coming after a three day span during which Saudi planes killed scores of civilians in a pair of attacks on a dairy and a refugee camp in northern Yemen.

Though the US has tried to downplay its involvement in the war, officials confirmed that US surveillance planes have been flying over Yemen and providing the Saudis with intelligence for their airstrikes, which isn’t an appealing role considering how bloody and unpopular those strikes have been.

Webmaster's Commentary:

It's Been A Year Since Senators Voted To Reveal CIA Torture. What Do We Have To Show For It?

One year ago Friday, the Senate Intelligence Committee, then under the command of Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), voted to share with the world some of Washington’s most tightly held secrets: gruesome accounts of CIA personnel torturing detainees for the good of all Americans -- who had little idea what was being done in their name.

After a protracted battle with both the CIA and the White House over how much information to release, the executive summary of Feinstein’s massive torture report finally saw the light of day in early December. Its release did not set off a violent backlash overseas despite panicked warnings from the intelligence community, nor did it irrevocably damage U.S. national security.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Where did Huffpo get that result, claiming that "In the days after the report summary’s release, a majority of Americans continued to believe the CIA’s actions were justified."?!?

IF they actually polled, they either were polling the criminally insane, or were doing what is called "push polling" using preselected zip codes
where you pretty much know how the target demographic will respond, depending on how the questions are crafted.

NO THINKING PERSON I KNOW BELIEVES THAT TORTURE IS EVER JUSTIFIED, NOT ONE.

This not only creates no actionable intelligence; torture is simply a way of getting someone to confess to a predetermined linkage, as they tried to do with Saddam Hussein having had weapons of mass destruction.

When the US government tortures, or outsources torture, here is what happens:

1. The rest of the world despises us, because those alleged values of peace, democracy, and basic human rights are seen as being observed in the breach, not in the practice of those values.

2. When the US government tortures, or outsources torture, it gives carte blanche to every world leader who doesn't like us very much, to torture our American military and civilians in their countries.

Those in the military, or who have friends or family in the military, please think about that one for awhile.

All Over The Country, Kids Are Getting Shocked With Tasers And Sprayed With Chemicals In School

Noe Niño de Rivera spent nearly two months in a medically induced coma after a Texas school resource officer shocked him with a Taser in November 2013. Niño de Rivera, who was 17 at the time, had been trying to break up a fight between other students, his attorney said, though the officer claimed he had been trying to diffuse the violence and the teen interfered.

The shock from the Taser knocked Niño de Rivera to the ground. He hit his head and sustained a severe brain injury. The incident changed his life and deeply affected his family members.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF I were a parent thinking about enrolling a child in a school, I would talk to the Principal, make sure the conversation was recorded, and determine if subduing of students with chemicals and tazers was accepted school district policy.

If the answer from that principal was in the least way affirmative, or if they were trying to duck the question, I would politely thank them for their time, and tell them that I will not tolerate a school policy which allows that, shake their hands, go home, and tell my kid that from that moment forward, they would be home-schooled.

Spraying chemicals on a child, or shocking them as a method of getting them to comply is not "education"; it is a jack-booted, nightmarish form of discipline, which has no place whatsoever in 21st century teaching, unless the purpose of school has become simply to compel compliance, and regurgitate the politically correct preferences of the powerful.

Karl Rove tells Iraq veteran: ‘Sorry for what you went through,’ but I won’t apologize for the war

An Iraq war veteran confronted former White House adviser Karl Rove during a speaking engagement on Tuesday and demanded he apologize for the war, the Hartford Courant reported.

“I have taken responsibility for my actions and dealt with my demons while advocating for a peaceful resolution of a war that was an act of aggression with no clear goal,” said the former soldier, who identified himself as Ryan Henowitz. “Can you take responsibility and apologize for your decision in sending a generation to lose their humanity and deal with the horrors of war, which you have never had the courage to face? Will you apologize to the millions of fathers and mothers who lost their children on both sides of this useless war?”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What an incredible piece of work this man is, absolutely, and contemptuously refusing to take responsibility for being one of the architects of a war which was, ultimately,all about Iraq's oil, and selling it only in US dollars!!

He and the rest of that unholy, sociopathic quintet, Bush, Rusmfeld, Rice, Cheney, should be shunned for the rest of their miserable lives for lying us into a war which absolutely shattered Iraq, and devolved into a horrific civil war between religious factions, which continues to this day.

But of course, their good buddies, companies like Haliburton, etc., made out like bandits, charging the US government exorbitant amounts of money for shoddy work that many times dissolved shortly after it had been built, and creating burn pits which they assured soldiers attending those pits that there were no safety issues. Many of these men and women are now in the grip of severe, life threatening health issues, and yet the US military will not acknowledge that the problems exist.

But hey, Turdblossom; (that isn't my creation; that was George Bush's nickname for him!!) Not one of the companies making huge war bucks off the Iraq war gave a damn about how many people got killed or maimed for life, as long as the money poured in.

You may have had a conscience at one point, but I would suggest you had it surgically removed, when you realized what an obstacle it is to making money.

And by the way, that last sentence quoted above is a complete and outright lie: " We should be proud of what we were able to do in Iraq and we should be sorry that we left them alone, because when we left them, things deteriorated.”

Does Rove think, for one moment, that Americans have forgotten Muktada Al Sadr, the Shiite Iranian cleric, who founded the Mahdi Army, and threatened that if all Americans were not out of Iraq by December 31, 2011, all American military and civilian contractors would be fair game?!?

It is apparent that the US military took this guy, and his military resources , at their word, and left Iraq.

IS GREECE ABOUT TO PLAY ITS GEOPOLITICAL TRUMP CARD AND IGNITE A CHAIN REACTION ACROSS EUROPE?

If the EMU powers persist mechanically with their stale demands – even reverting to terms that the previous pro-EMU government in Athens rejected in December – they risk setting off a political chain-reaction that can only eviscerate the EU Project as a motivating ideology in Europe.

Forced Grexit would entrench a pervasive suspicion that EU bodies are ultimately agents of creditor enforcement. It would expose the Project’s post-war creed of solidarity as so much humbug.

Greece could not plausibly remain in NATO if ejected from EMU in acrimonious circumstances. It would drift into the Russian orbit, where Hungary’s Viktor Orban already lies. The southeastern flank of Europe’s security system would fall apart.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This could well be the nail in the coffin of the Euro, and possibly sink NATO as well.

Only time will tell how this will play out.

THAILAND JUNTA REPLACES MARTIAL LAW WITH ABSOLUTE POWER

Article 44 of the interim constitution gives Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha, unchecked authority over all three branches of government and power over all aspects of law and order, as well as absolving him of any legal responsibility for his actions.?

The big topic of conversation in Thailand is martial law. Technically it’s gone, but in reality it’s still there.

On Wednesday, Thailand’s junta lifted martial law, which was imposed in the run-up to their May 22, 2014, coup – but then quickly replaced it with another set of draconian laws innocuously called “Article 44.” But make no mistake – 10 months after staging the coup, a military junta is still ruling Thailand, essentially with absolute power.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a very important issue, and one to which Americans need to pay attention.

There are hundreds of US companies which manufacture various goods - and the labor is extraordinarily cheap, and treated extraordinarily poorly.

In fact, this year, there have been reports of slave labor in Thailand's fishing industry, where men are forced to work, for no compensation, on remote islands for prawns. As reported yesterday at http://www.knoe.com:

BENJINA, Indonesia (KNOE 8 News/AP) - Officials from Thailand, Myanmar and Indonesia are traveling to remote islands in eastern Indonesia to investigate reports of slave labor. A yearlong investigation by The Associated Press published last week revealed thousands of foreign fishermen have wound up on those islands forced to catch seafood, some of which has ended up being exported to the United States. Among other things, the investigation found men locked in a company cage. Delegations from Thailand and Indonesia saw a graveyard where dozens of fishermen are buried in the island village of Benjina. The officials talked to men who have been stranded there for months or even years after being brought from Thailand and forced to work under brutal conditions on boats with Thai captains.

Those American companies, manufacturing here, have made it very clear to the ruling junta that they want to keep the situation here just as it is, with no real rises in salaries or better working conditions for the workers.

The late John Kennedy said it best: "When peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution is inevitable!"

The junta may be able to repress the Thai people a little while longer, to keep the money flowing; but I would be willing to bet, not indefinitely.

So You Think War With Iran is a Good Idea?

Well, if you really feel that strongly about it..

Here's your rifle..

Here's your parachute..

We ran out of the desert camo, but here is a bright day-glo orange jumpsuit left over from Gitmo..

Watch your head climbing into that transport plane..

And we'll call whoever it is you are telling us needs to be invaded this week and tell them you are on your way to kick their butts all by yourself.

But given the very long history of the United States government and the corporate media lying and tricking us into wars, you will forgive We The People if we sit this one out and keep our children safe at home.

And just in case you are one of those poor government or media people who are not as well educated in history as the average American citizen, here is a comprehensive but by no means complete list of just how many times We The People have been made total fools of by the US Government and the corporate media.

Dome of the Rock erased from kindergarten's Haggadah

Al-Aqsa Mosque replaced with trees in picture of Jerusalem's Western Wall in Kiryat Tivon nursery school's Passover booklet. 'This is not the kind of education I would like my children to receive,' says shocked father.

A Passover Hagaddah handed out to children in a municipal kindergarten in the northern town of Kiryat Tivon includes a picture of the Western Wall without the Dome of the Rock behind it.

Ofir Spiegler ran across the picture when his daughter brought the Hagaddah home before the Passover vacation. He discovered that the page which says "Next year in a rebuilt Jerusalem" includes a picture of the Western Wall with the Temple Mount and trees behind it. The Dome of the Rock, a Muslim mosque famous for its large golden dome, is nowhere to be seen.

Islamic Jew-hatred’ ads with Hitler appear on Philly buses

I wonder if I should tell you about the Zionist/NaZi connections? That they were (are) one and the same? That the "Jewish Holocaust" was really the "Shnorrer Holocaust" (poor Jewish Holocaust): those Jews who were refuseniks against the Zionist cult?

That same occult underpinnings of Zionism, NaZism are the same for Islamofascism, the Muslim Brotherhood (now al Qaeda and ISIS), based in the Cairo Lodge, saved by Allen Dulles and the CIA, removed to Saudi Arabia, after Nasser tried to suppress this heretical Islamic movement?

That Saudi Arabia and Israel are the evil step-brothers in the Rothschild plan to use Israel as the center-piece for the Satanic New World Order centered on the rebuilt Temple of Solomon in Jerusalem atop what is now the Al-Aqsa Mosque?
