THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

"Beware the leader who bangs the drums of war in order to whip the citizenry into a patriotic fervor, for patriotism is indeed a double-edged sword. It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind.

"And when the drums of war have reached a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of the citizenry. Rather, the citizenry, infused with fear and blinded by patriotism, will offer up all of their rights unto the leader and gladly so. "

Webmaster's Commentary: 


Meanwhile, the FDA recently sent a scathing warning letter to the snack bar company KIND, saying it's in violation of FDA rules by using the word "healthy" to describe its products. You've probably seen these KIND bars around -- they're mostly nuts, whole grains, coconut and seeds.

Why Was Carter’s Gaza Meeting Cancelled?

Israel had earlier agreed to allow Carter to enter Gaza on this trip, but, according to Israeli media. “in response to Carter’s decision to meet with Hamas leadership, Israeli President Rivlin said April 20, he would refuse to meet with the former president due to his ‘anti-Israel’ positions”.

In his role as an international mediator, Carter has long maintained that meetings with “the perceived enemy” is essential to any reconciliation between groups, tribes or nations. While president, Carter was instrumental in organizing and directing the historic Camp David reconciliation between Egypt and Israel.

Europe's debt mountain just got bigger

It's official. The eurozone is drowning in debt.

According to the latest figures from the bloc's official statistical authority, government debt in the eurozone reached nearly 92pc of GDP last year - the highest level since the single currency was introduced in 1999.

Unsurprisingly, debt-stricken Greece is the worst offender, with its public debt topping 177pc of national economic output. Italy is not far behind at 132pc of GDP, with bailed-out Cyprus at 107pc.

The figures also show that only five of the eurozone's 19 countries are below the Maastricht Treaty's 60pc debt limit. Across Europe as a whole, 16 of out the 26 member states are officially in breach of the debt criteria.

Does GMO Food Cause Stomach Inflammation?

"We chose pigs because they have a similar digestive system to humans," wrote Carman, "and because some of the investigators had been observing reproductive and digestive problems in pigs fed GM crops."

A few days before the pigs were slaughtered, the scientists performed blood tests, and after slaughter had qualified vets do autopsies on the carcasses.

They found severe stomach inflammation in 22.2% of male pigs and 41.7% of female pigs fed the GM diet – compared to 5.6% and 18.9%, respectively, in pigs fed the non-GM diet.

Cult Leader Will Tell Congress: Fight ISIS by Regime Change in Iran

Last week, the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Terrorism, Nonproliferation, and Trade announced that a controversial Iranian exile opposition figure would be testifying via video uplink at a hearing on the Islamic State, known as ISIS. What does the witness, Maryam Rajavi, a co-leader of the Mojahedin-e Khalq (MEK), have to say about the subject at hand?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

MEK has a history of cooperation with Mossad. When Mossad cooked up the "Laptop of death", a since-discredited attempt to show that Iran was working on nuclear weapons, it was "data laundered" through MEK, which presented it to the west with the cover story that it had been stolen from an Iranian scientist.

Russia blasts fresh US allegations on anti-aircraft systems in Ukraine as 'viral stupidity'

“We are left to guess about the real reasons that caused Russian anti-aircraft weapons to become an obsessive phobia of US foreign policy officials, as now they see them everywhere.”

The ministry’s press service also reiterated the Russian position that no Russian anti-aircraft complexes are now in southeastern Ukraine, and no such weapons have ever been deployed to this region.

It went on to note the State Department would do better to be concerned about US military instructors who have flooded the Ukrainian territories controlled by pro-Kiev troops. “This fact is confirmed not by some mythical data from obscure sources, but by direct video evidence broadcast by some Russian and foreign TV channels.”

‘Gaza used as arms-testing laboratory’: British Jews condemn UK-Israel arms trade

Manchester Jews for Justice for Palestinians have harshly criticized the “UK’s complicity in Israeli war crimes” in an open letter and called for an end of the arms trade between the UK and Israel.

“We deplore the UK’s complicity in Israeli war crimes, most recently the massacres and destruction of homes and livelihoods in Gaza last summer,” the group wrote in a letter published on the blog Mondoweiss.

“It is well known how Israel has expelled the Palestinian population from their land and enforced a systematic, military and illegal occupation against those that remain. What is less well known is that the UK has been aiding and abetting Israel’s crimes against the Palestinian people.”

Iraq turmoil today a consequence of 2003 invasion – ex-UN chief Annan

The fragile state Iraq is now in is directly linked to the US-led invasion of 2003, which happened without a US Security Council mandate, Kofi Annan, who was UN Secretary General between 1997 and 2006, told RT.

“You cannot disassociate the situation in Iraq today from the US intervention of 2003. Because not only did the intervention take place, but they dismantled the Iraqi Army, which was the tool of Saddam to maintain law and order,” Annan said in Oksana Boyko’s Worlds Apart show.

“The civil service, the Baathist Party were all [dismantled]. So the structures and state institutions vanished overnight, creating a very serious vacuum, which has led to where we are today. So I don't think anybody can argue with that. The link is clear,” he added.

US ready to take risk of war with Iran for Israeli regime's sake: Biden

As the White House tries to mend fences with the Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu who is upset about nuclear talks with Iran, Vice President Joe Biden says the US is ready to risk a military confrontation in support of the Israeli regime.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Okay, Joe, if you really feel that way about it... Here's your rifle. Here's your parachute. We ran out of the desert camo but here's a bright da-glo orange jumpsuit from the CIA's torture centers. Watch your head climbing into that transport aircraft, and we will call Tehran and tell them you are on your way to kick their butts all by yourself.

But We The People remember the lies about stolen incubators that tricked us into the first invasion of Iraq.

We The People remember the lies about Saddam's nuclear weapons that tricked us into the second invasion of Iraq.

We The People remember how only a year ago you tried to trick us into war with Syria with more lies about poison gas.

We The People remember how there weren't really torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin or a Spanish mine in Havana Harbor, but how there really WERE weapons on board the Lusitania.

In short, We The People remember all the lies, frauds, and deceptions used to trick us into wars of conquest, to send our young people out to die in wars created out of thin air by and for the money-junkies. I think it is time that we have a new rule in America; that those who want war are the first to the front lines. You are all splendidly brave with the lives of other peoples' children. Let's see the true measure of your courage and commitment to war.

You first!

And just to keep you honest, please recall that Iran has not initiated a war of conquest against another nation in over 200 years; a sharp contrast to the US and Israel, which these days cannot seem to go two months without invading, drone-striking, or overthrowing someone else's nation!

Litvinenko Wasn't Poisoned by Putin. He Was Likely Smuggling the Polonium That Killed Him

As we all know Alexander Litvinenko, was poisoned by polonium, a rare radioactive substance, and it was all blamed on Putin of Russia because Litvinenko was a Putin critic. This was the quick line in mass media and it was on all the typical war propaganda channels.

There are many things wrong with the “Putin did it” story. For one there is no motive, even with Litvinenko being a critic of Russia, he was no threat whatsoever to Putin. The man worked with Chechen terrorists and the Israeli-Russian oligarchs. But just assuming that there was a sufficient motive to kill him, think about this: Why would Russia use a very rare, very expensive, and easily traceable radioactive substance to kill him instead of some cheap poison or just shooting him? Why risk smuggling radioactive material into the UK which is an act of war?

Polls Show Youngest Americans Are Skeptical of Global Warming

When it comes to global warming, there is a wide variety of opinions. While mainstream science contends that it’s an open and shut case, others believe quite the opposite. There are also plenty of folks in-between who do believe the planet is warming, but that it’s not being caused by human activity. You wouldn’t know that if you talked to most global warming advocates though. To them, climate skepticism is a kooky, marginal opinion that will soon go the way of the dodo.

Recent polling has proven otherwise however.

Embarrassment for Angela Merkel as Germany is accused of spying on the French and European Commission on behalf of the US

Angela Merkel's government was under pressure this evening over claims that German intelligence services spied on top French officials and the European Commission on behalf of the Americans.

The revelation comes months after Mrs Merkel railed against America over reports fuelled by whistleblower Edward Snowden that the US spy agency the NSA was guilty of hacking her own mobile telephone.

The government refused to comment today on stories in the German press, claiming that it would only answer to a parliamentary committee 'in due course.'

Privately, Mrs Merkel and her closest aides are fuming at the intelligence leak and have ordered a security clampdown.

Early classic of Palestinian resistance cinema reemerges
Submitted by Sarah Irving on Fri, 05/01/2015 - 12:07

In 2003, young Palestinian artist Annemarie Jacir had spent years trying to trace a group of resistance filmmakers who, in the 1970s and early 1980s, had devoted their talents to their people’s struggle.

Finally, during the 2003 “Dreams of a Nation” film festival in Palestine, she was able to bring together some of those directors and producers and their works. In the case of one 25-minute drama-documentary called They Do Not Exist, it was the film’s first ever screening in Palestine. It was also the first time its director, Mustafa Abu Ali, one of the founders of the PLO’s film unit, had seen his work in two decades.

Now, the film has been made freely available in versions on YouTube or Vimeo.

Israel Festival hit hard by boycott in wake of Gaza assault, director admits

Israel’s flagship annual cultural festival has been forced to curtail its 2015 schedule because last summer’s assault on Gaza and the growing impact of Palestinian calls for cultural boycott are making it harder to attract international artists.

The Israel Festival’s new director Eyal Sher “does not hide the problems that constrained its production,” the Hebrew-language Israeli publication Mako reports.

“This year’s festival was produced with a shortened schedule against the background of Operation Protective Edge,” Sher says, “and had to face, like many cultural and academic bodies in the country, BDS [boycott divestment and sanctions].”

The Israeli Humanitarian Enthusiasm – A Dialectical Perspective

We are familiar with this pattern. Israel is always fast to send its medical aid and rescue teams to remote destinations as soon as the news about a natural disaster hits CNN. Yet, peculiarly, it is the same Israel that inflicts tragedies that easily match the worst natural disasters on its next door neighbours.

How can we reconcile this clear discrepancy between Israel’s humanitarian enthusiasm and the collective lethal ambitions Israeli society inflicts on its Arab neighbours? Why are the Israelis so intent on displaying a global image of ‘caring’ while behaving in a murderous and heartless manner towards their neighbours?

Senator Bernie Sanders Calls Hillary Clinton Foundation Money ‘A Very Serious Problem’

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont, said he is concerned by the millions of dollars flowing into the Clinton Foundation at a time when he thinks money plays too strong a role in politics.

“It tells me what is a very serious problem,” Sanders said in an interview with ABC News’ Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl. “It's not just about Hillary Clinton or Bill Clinton. It is about a political system today that is dominated by big money. It's about the Koch brothers being prepared to spend $900 million dollars in the coming election.

“So do I have concerns about the Clinton Foundation and that money? I do,” he added. “But I am concerned about Sheldon Adelson and his billions. I’m concerned about the Koch Brothers and their billions. We're looking at a system where our democracy is being owned by a handful of billionaires.”

U.S. Navy escorting American ships in Strait of Hormuz amid Iran tension

A Senior Defense Department official confirms to CBS News that U.S. Naval forces have begun accompanying American-flagged maritime traffic in the Strait of Hormuz.

The move is in response to what Washington views as provocative Iranian behavior in the Persian Gulf. Earlier this week Iranian naval vessels reportedly fired warning shots near Maersk Tigris, a Marshall Islands-flagged cargo ship, and detained it and its crew. Iranian officials say the Maersk shipping line owes it money.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So all Israel needs to do is sneak one of their submarines into Iranian waters and fire a shot at one of the US ships (the way Israel attacked USS Liberty) and blame Iran for it (the way Israel initially blamed Egypt for the USS Liberty attack).

Victory for civil Rights activists – GCHQ snooping illegal

In a major victory for civil rights activists, the Investigatory Powers Tribunal, the body which considers complaints about UK government surveillance, has held GCHQ guilty of illegal surveillance and monitoring of privileged attorney-client communications. Coming down heavily on the agency, the Tribunal has also directed it to destroy all material it collected as a result. The messages to be destroyed are communications belonging to Libya rendition victim, Sami-al-Saadi. Saadi, a fierce Gaddafi critic, was captured in a joint CIA-MI6 ‘rendition’ operation in 2004 in Libya, along with his wife and children between the ages of 6 and 12.

Chernobyl’s Radioactive Forest Fire. [April 29, 2015] – Location on map, Wind & Radiation Monitoring links

RT: How dangerous is the situation in your opinion? Do you agree with ecologists who say the smoke will spread the radiation John Large: […] It is not the reactor, it is not the location of the reactor that is the problem – it is the dispersal plumes from the original accident – that is the problem. If there are radioactive materials on the ground now and then it’s engulfed by forest fire maybe 40-50 km away from the reactor. But that deposited radioactivity is re-suspended into gas, blown high into the atmosphere by the heat of the flames, and then of course it settles somewhere else.

Boeing 787 software bug can shut down planes' generators IN FLIGHT

The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has issued a new airworthiness directive (PDF) for Boeing's 787 because a software bug shuts down the plane's electricity generators every 248 days.

“We have been advised by Boeing of an issue identified during laboratory testing,” the directive says. That issue sees “The software counter internal to the generator control units (GCUs) will overflow after 248 days of continuous power, causing that GCU to go into failsafe mode.”

When the GCU is in failsafe mode it isn't making any power. That'll be bad news if all four of the GCUs aboard a 787 were powered up at the same time, because all will then shut down, “resulting in a loss of all AC electrical power regardless of flight phase.”

Up until now, there had been some unconfirmed reports that police in Baltimore had been ordered to “stand down” during the riots, but nobody had been willing to come forward and go on the record. Now that has all changed. Michael Lewis is the Sheriff of Wicomico County, Maryland and what he has to say is absolutely jaw dropping. When he saw what was happening in Baltimore, he gathered up some of his fellow officers and drove down to the city to help. But when he got there, he says that all of the police were being ordered not to take any action and to let the rioters destroy property. Lewis made this astounding claim during a discussion on a Baltimore radio station…

The declaration today (April 29) of a scarcely positive GDP first quarter 2015 development rate of 0.2 percent (two-tenths of one percent) is a deliberate embellishment.

The Real Length of the Full-Time Work Week

The days of the 40 hour work-week are over.

When you're hired for a full-time job, the understanding is that you'll put in at least a 40-hour workweek.

The expectation -- especially for salaried employees who don't qualify for overtime -- is that you'll put in more to ensure your projects get done.

Powerful report on sexual abuse in (Canadian) military calls for outside-chain-of-command solution

The report from former Supreme Court Justice Marie Deschamps on sexual misconduct and harassment in the Canadian Armed Forces is blistering and powerful.

It describes "a sexualized environment in the armed forces … characterized by the frequent use of swear words and highly degrading expressions that reference women's bodies, sexual jokes, innuendos, discriminatory comments with respect to the abilities of women, and unwelcome sexual touching..."

That would be bad enough.

But Deschamps goes on to say that this sexualized environment leads to the widespread "use of sex to enforce power relationships and to punish and ostracize a member of a unit."

REVEALED: Freddie Gray suffered fatal 'catastrophic injury when he fell head first in back of police van and broke neck as head hit bolt' - and police admit mystery secret stop on journey

An investigation has concluded Freddie Gray broke his neck after falling head-first into the back of the police van as it was moving, it was reported today.

Medical and law enforcement sources briefed on the police investigation told ABC News Gray's 'catastrophic' head injuries were consistent with hitting a bolt 'in the back door of the van'.

They claimed there was 'no evidence' Gray sustained a fatal spine injury during his arrest, which was caught on camera on a street side on April 12.

According to ABC's sources, Gray was standing in the van, bent over with his hand cuffed behind his back and his head pointing towards the back door.

It is believed he fell into the door, breaking his neck.

Cash on Lockdown: Bankers “Want Badly to Charge YOU Interest for Depositing YOUR Funds”

Cash is quickly becoming a liability.

SHTF has been closely following the recent calls from Wall Street to ban cash and implement a system that would force everyone to operate on the grid, even as interest rates have hit negative and customers are actually charged for keeping money in the bank.

Money Metals Exchange explains it well:

The Federal Reserve bank and its owners, the largest banks on Wall Street, want badly to be able to charge you interest for the privilege of depositing your funds. The problem is getting you to stand for it.

11 Examples Of How Evil Is Growing In America Like A Cancerous Tumor

Have you heard of “arterial tapping”, “flakka” or “cyberextortion”? In America today, just about every conceivable type of evil that you could possibly name is growing, and we are even inventing new kinds of evil that the world has never seen before. It is very easy for us to point to the looting and violence in Baltimore and call that evil, but there is far more to the social decay of America than just that. The foundations of our society are rotting and decaying in thousands of different ways, and our biggest problem as a nation is what is found inside our own hearts. We have rejected the values and principles that were handed down to us by previous generations of Americans because we believed that we knew better than they did. But now look at us. Our country is falling apart all around us, and we only have ourselves to blame.

Michigan governor wants to split Detroit Public Schools district to isolate debt

Gov. Rick Snyder has laid out a plan the struggling Detroit Public Schools district, which has big debts and poor student achievement in many of its approximately 100 schools.

Snyder said the district has reached a "crisis point where systemic change is needed."

Under the plan, the existing Detroit Public Schools would continue under the direction of the emergency manager and the elected Board of Education for the sole purpose of paying off the district’s debt.

Detroit water bill battle: What can you do?

Clark said she's struggled to pay her water bill in the past, but things got worse in October when her water usage suddenly skyrocketed.

"We went from 2,900 gallons of water to 29,000 gallons of water," she said.

Ruth to the Rescue reviewed Clark's bills from the last six months and confirmed that -- from October to December -- her water usage jumped from more than 23,000 gallons of water to 29,000 gallons. In 2013, those numbers were under 4,000 gallons.

The Messenger of fate: NASA spacecraft smashes into planet Mercury

Its fuel tanks empty and its options gone, NASA's Messenger spacecraft smashed into planet Mercury on Thursday afternoon after valiantly fighting off the inevitable.

Engineers calculated that the spacecraft, traveling a scorching 8,700 mph, bombed into the planet's heavily pockmarked surface at 3:26 p.m. ET Thursday. It was not a gentle goodbye: The impact was expected to pulverize the car-sized spaceship and gouge out a 50-foot crater -- big enough to accommodate a school bus -- near Mercury's north pole.

Engineers calculated that the spacecraft belly-flopped onto the cratered terrain on the far side of Mercury, when the ship was out of contact with Earth.

British Doctors Now Asking Elderly If They’re Ready to Die

Ever since the Affordable Care Act was passed, Americans have been asking themselves if our healthcare will ever resemble the UK’s socialized medical system. Some have greeted it with praise, while others have been concerned that our healthcare could turn to death panels to cut costs. Now the UK’s National Health Service has given us another unfortunate condition to look forward to. They recently told all doctors to ask every patient over 75 if they would like to establish a “do not resuscitate” order for future emergencies. In some cases, the doctors are ordering their nurses to cold-call every elderly patient, and everyone with a long-term condition, to see if they have “thought about resuscitation.”

Inching Toward Conflict: US Navy To Escort Cargo Ships In Persian Gulf; Iran Refuses To Back Down

Moments ago there was yet another step up in the Persian Gulf naval escalation when CNN reported that the U.S. Navy will escort U.S.-flagged cargo ships through Strait of Hormuz in wake of Iran seizure this week, a US official says. Specifically, the Navy will henceforth accompany ships on concern that Iran’s Revolutionary Guard may seize them, CNN’s Jim Sciutto says in Twitter post, citing CNN’s Barbara Starr. It is unclear what happens if either the accompanied cargo ship, or the US Navy warship leaves international waters, and enters Iran territory, which as the Bab el-Mandeb Strait is virtually assured: a strait which as the following US Naval update map has become as busy for US traffic as the 405 Freeway during rush hour.
