Is being a critic of Israeli state policies the same as being an anti-Semite?

Is being a critic of Israeli state policies actually the same as being an anti-Semite? If every time one voices a criticism of Israel one is acting as an anti-Semite, and if making an anti-Semitic statement is prohibited by the State Department, then ardent supporters of Israeli state policies have won a huge victory — they have essentially made Israel immune from criticism, and made anyone even thinking about raising a serious concern about Israel think twice about just how (or even if) to voice that point of view. But that victory is based on false reasoning, if not a lie.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If criticism of Israel's government is anti-semitism, then criticism of the Nazis is anti-Germanism. Carried through to its logical conclusion, shall we declare all criticism of the US Government, even though well deserved, anti-American and therefore subject to silencing? The First Amendment was written on the principle that people have a right to criticize bad government, even their own.

US media and pro-Israel antics in Congress

The New York Times’ coverage of congressional antics related to the Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) legislation has ignored so many critical aspects of the bill that it might be time for the “paper of record” to change its motto from “All the news that’s fit to print” to “All the news we think fits, we print.”

Amnesty says torture of Ukraine war prisoners is rife

Both warring sides in eastern Ukraine are perpetrating war crimes almost daily, including torturing prisoners and summarily killing them, the Amnesty International rights group said in a report Friday.

William Kristol: We were right to fight in Iraq

We were right to invade Iraq in 2003 to remove Saddam Hussein, and to complete the job we should have finished in 1991.

Even with the absence of caches of weapons of mass destruction, and the mistakes we made in failing to send enough troops at first and to provide security from the beginning for the Iraqi people, we were right to persevere through several difficult years. We were able to bring the war to a reasonably successful conclusion in 2008.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So according to Kristol, the US killed a lot of people, bombed Iraq into rubble, utterly failed to accomplish the stated goals for the war because the nuclear weapons did not actually exist, leaving Iraq in utter chaos, but it was still a success?

I wonder what Kristol thinks is a failure?

False Accusations of Anti-Semitism Used to Silence Advocacy for Palestinian Rights on U.S. College Campuses

In the first four months of 2015, attorneys with Palestine Legal responded to 102 requests for legal assistance from students and faculty on college campuses across the country, including from Palestinian rights advocates smeared as “terrorists” or “supporters of terrorism” based solely on speech critical of Israeli policy.

During this period, Palestine Legal documented:

60 incidents involving accusations of anti-Semitism made against students or faculty, based solely on speech critical of Israeli policy.
24 incidents involving accusations of support for terrorism made against students or faculty, based solely on speech critical of Israeli policy.

Stephen Harper probably wishes the month of May had never happened

Of their many other May woes, the government is merely reaping what it's sown. Here are a few.

Canadians discovered that the government didn't bother to spend a much-needed $97 million it had budgeted for the disabled, youth employment and adult literacy. This followed other recent revelations that it also failed to spend $1.1 billion that was available for the urgent needs of veterans.

Twice already this month, the courts have found for Omar Khadr and against Stephen Harper. His government's visceral hatred for the man, its relentless attempts to destroy the rest of his life, has blinded them to law and Constitution alike. These last two judgments join a long series of embarrassing judicial defeats for the government.

Arizona Sen. John McCain says it's 'mindboggling' that President Obama says the U.S. is 'not losing' the fight against ISIS. He says about 10,000 boots on the ground are needed to combat the terror group.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Okay, John, here's your rifle!

Technically, Obama is correct. The US is not losing to ISIS, the US is losing to the people of Iraq, who want to take their nation back from US puppet rule. This is Iran 1979 all over again.

Leading German Keynesian Economist Calls For Cash Ban

At this stage, a sane person might be tempted to call it a day on the monetary experiments, especially considering that at this point, the limits have been reached. That is, there are literally no more assets to buy and rates have hit the effective lower bound where rational actors will eschew bank deposits in favor of the mattress. But not so fast, say folks like Citi’s Willem Buiter and economist Ken Rogoff: the world could always ban cash because if you eliminate physical currency and force people to use a debit card linked to a government controlled bank account for all transactions, you can effectively centrally plan everything. Consumers not spending? No problem. Just tax their excess account balance. Economy overheating? Again, no problem. Raise the interest paid on account holdings to encourage people to stop spending.

Memorial Day Is A Hoax — Paul Craig Roberts

Memorial Day commemorates soldiers killed in war. We are told that the war dead died for us and our freedom. US Marine General Smedley Butler challenged this view. He said that our soldiers died for the profits of the bankers, Wall Street, Standard Oil, and the United Fruit Company. Here is an excerpt from a speech that he gave in 1933:

War is just a racket. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of people. Only a small inside group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few at the expense of the masses.

Remember the Suffering of Palestinians

East Jerusalem, the birthplace of these men, was unilaterally annexed by Israel shortly after the 1967 occupation. No country in the world has recognized this annexation.

Further south, there is the case of the villagers of Susya, a rural community south of Hebron that the Israeli forces have been using for military exercises.

When the villagers complained to the Israeli high court, it ruled in favor (you guessed it) of the army, not of the third-class Palestinians living on their lands.

Major Lawsuit Targets Monsanto for Selling Cancer-Linked Herbicide

Glyphosate is harmful to humans and animals…

Those claims that Monsanto made – that glyphosate was harmless to humans – well, the company is about to pay for that ‘false advertising’ in the form of a class action lawsuit put forth by the offices of T. Matthew Phillips in Los Angeles, California.

In the lawsuit filed in California, Monsanto is accused of:

The deliberate falsification to conceal the fact that glyphosate is harmful to humans and animals.

The class action lawsuit (Case No: BC 578 942) was filed in Los Angeles County, California against biotechnology giant Monsanto. It alleges that Monsanto is guilty of false advertising by claiming that glyphosate, the active ingredient in their best-selling herbicide, Roundup, “targets an enzyme only found in plants and not in humans or animals.” You can see this statement marked clearly on some of Monsanto’s products sold in the state.

Special Forces Veteran Tells the Truth About Joining the Military

“They’re not sending you out there to be a hero…” – Stan Goff

As world leaders work feverishly to bring about World War III, the need for front line cannon fodder will only increase, and more of the world’s youth will called to duty by the traitors and cowards who make peace an impossibility.

The propaganda machine and mainstream media is very sophisticated at selling war, and military recruiters have unfettered access to the mind’s of the young. They want YOU to be their next disposable hero.

The effort to make joining the military seem attractive will intensify as the economy worsens and college tuition rises, so it’s important to remember that no matter what they offer in exchange, it is your life and conscience that are truly at stake, and these are both priceless and irreplaceable.

Two DEA Agents Ran New Jersey's Sleaziest Strip Club

And it was widely known around the dimly lit club that both men were DEA agents. Hell, they practically wore it as a badge of honor, with Polos rocking his DEA badge while Glover sported a Kevlar vest.

Polos even tried to pawn himself off as a G-man. “Polos would sometimes claim to others at the club that he worked for the FBI,” according to the court papers.

When Glover announced he was coming to the bar with two New Jersey state troopers, however, he made sure his fellow manager would be discreet. “I’m coming with two state troopers they don’t know I own the bar,” Glover texted. The manager replied: “Copy, I will be brief.”

But the DEA duo weren’t exactly known for their discretion. Polos routinely made calls and texted with his DEA-issued cellphone to get fellow managers to cover his manager shift at the strip joint.

What Do Takata Air Bags Have in Common with Vaccines?

By Catherine J. Frompovich

Both are consumer products. Both are manufactured by mega corporations. Both products have sales in the millions, if not many times more. Plus, both have killed individuals. However, there’s a significant uncommonness between both products, though: Takata air bags have killed only five (5) people in the USA, which set off a massive recall effort of accountability on the part of the manufacturer, whereas vaccines have killed hundreds, if not thousands or more, and nothing—zilch, other than apparent cover-ups—have occurred to prevent future child abuse!

POLITICAL CORRECTNESS: TYRANNY OF THE MIND

In a letter to Dr. Benjamin Rush, dated September 23, 1800, Thomas Jefferson wrote, “I have sworn upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.” By any definition that Jefferson could have envisioned, today’s political correctness can only be regarded as “tyranny over the mind of man.” Forget freedom of association, freedom of expression, freedom of speech, or freedom of privacy, political correctness demands that we don’t even have freedom of thought or opinion.

If one does not have the freedom to live in good conscience with his own sense of morality, he or she is indeed the most enslaved of creatures. Listen to Jefferson again, “To compel a man to furnish funds for the propagation of ideas he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.”

A special investigation by Reuters revealed that a senior member of the Department of Defense’s (DoD) Inspector General team had colluded with an independent auditing company, Grant Thornton LLP, to falsely keep the US Marine Corps books clean. The DoD remained the only federal organization that had not abided with a 1992 law passed by Congress to undergo an audit. This was despite the DoD receiving in excess of $500 billion a year, which is by far the largest appropriation of any department.

California's new water legislation held under top secret status; no one's allowed to know the details

The U.S. government is becoming less transparent than it has been at any time in our history, as evidenced by pending water legislation in the nation's capital that voters, via their elected representatives, are not permitted to see.

As reported by McClatchy Papers, five months into a new Congress and years into a punishing drought that still continues to ravage most of California, legislation dealing with dwindling supplies of water confounds and splits the state's lawmakers.

Moreover, draft copies of bills are kept so close to the vest that they appear to be a top secret. The myriad details surrounding each draft are constantly changing. Timing to introduce the legislation is not yet settled, although a June 2 Senate hearing might go off as planned. Democrats are divided, and some are just angry.

Sound familiar?

Scott Walker Lets Millionaire Donors Know the Outrageous Sum It'll Take to Buy Him Off

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker has put a pricetag on how much it will cost to join his inner circle, where you can meet with the 2016 GOP presidential candidate and have “dedicated staff contact” to ensure that your agenda will heard and noted.

On Monday, while Walker was making the rounds on Capitol Hill in Washington, his super PAC—the latest campaign finance loophole-contorting tactic—was handing out formal printed invitations to join at the $1 million, $500,000 and $250,000 level that described just what political investors would get for their money.

Anti-NSA Pranksters Planted Tape Recorders Across New York and Published Your Conversations

The recordings posted to the site don’t name any of the eavesdropped speakers. But they do include the locations where the recordings were made, which could provide just enough information to identify some of those speakers. And regardless of anonymity, the prank is likely illegal: Secretly recording a conversation in New York requires the consent of at least one of the people recorded—a tape recorder planted under a table and retrieved later certainly doesn’t qualify.

Of the five recordings published on the project’s website so far, three of the recorders used to get them remain in place, and an untold number of others could still be planted around the city. So, careful what you say in public, New Yorkers—unless, of course, you have nothing to hide.

Putin says Ukraine’s statement on default unprofessional

Ukraine's statement regarding a possible default is a consequence of Kiev’s low level of professionalism, said Russian President Vladimir Putin, ordering the Finance Ministry to sort out the issue of Ukraine’s debt to Russia.

“The announcement of the upcoming default shows a level of responsibility and professionalism which is apparently not high,” Putin said at a meeting with members of the government.

“As far as I understand, the IMF [International Monetary Fund] doesn’t provide any loans to countries that are in a situation of default or bankruptcy,” he added addressing Finance Minister Anton Siluanov, requesting that he hold consultations on Ukraine's debt to the Russian Federation.

I was thinking how humanity could descend to such barbarity around the world. How could African migrants risk their lives to leave countries wrecked psychologically and economically by colonial Europeans to seek to arrive in the same continent that subjugated them? How could Myanmar’s Rohingya Muslims be slaughtered in the thousands by the majority Buddhists and surviving people end up in boats and sent back to starve and die at sea rejected by nearby countries including countries like Indonesia with Muslim majorities? How could relatives of Jewish holocaust survivors engage in racism and ethnic cleansing for native Palestinians while relatives of Armenian holocaust survivors lead amazingly rich productive caring lives? How could a very wealthy country like “Saudi Arabia” (the quotes are needed because it is an imposed name for a country stolen by the Saud Family) spend billions to support the US/Israeli agenda of destruction and mayhem in countries like Yemen and Syria?
