Wikipedia as Propaganda Not History — MH17 as An Example

Wikipedia articles are more propaganda than they are historical accounts. And, often, their cited sources are misleading, or even false.

On 15 August 2007, the BBC headlined “Wikipedia Shows CIA Page Edits,” and Jonathan Fildes reported that, “An online tool that claims to reveal the identity of organizations that edit Wikipedia pages has revealed that the CIA was involved in editing entries.” I.e.: What the CIA doesn’t like, they can (and do) eliminate or change.

SHANGHAI PLUNGING – LOOK OUT BELOW

I love those fantasy stories about central bankers being all-powerful and able to levitate stock markets forever. They make me all warm and fuzzy. In case you hadn’t noticed, the Chinese central bankers and communist party politicians have been desperately trying to stop their stock market from crashing. EPIC FAIL!!!

It plunged another 5% overnight. They have halted trading on 40% of their stocks and it keeps falling. They ban short selling and it continues to fall. They ban the press from talking negatively about the stock market and it keeps falling. They instruct their government agencies to buy stocks and it continues to fall. The omnipotence of central bankers is being proven to be a fraud.

Anti-Austerity Action in The City of London

In the following exclusive video report, we get to see anti-austerity action reaching the belly of the beast in the heart of The City of London.

Activists have managed to get inside of a building and get anti-austerity messages prominently displayed in one of the wealthiest areas of the British capital.

Numerous people have been reported to have committed suicide as a result of the austerity cuts that have taken place in the UK. Meanwhile, others have been killed as an indirect result of the cuts.

Greece just voted to reject austerity measures that would have been forced upon the country by foreign creditors. Let us hope they can begin to turn things around…

Spain Government Goes Full Police State; Enacts Law Forbidding Dissent, 'Unauthorized' Photography Of Law Enforcement

Well, Spain's officially a police state now. On July 1st, its much-protested "gag" law went into effect, instantly making criminals of those protesting the new law. Among the many new repressive stipulations is a €30,000-€600,000 fine for "unauthorized protests," which can be combined for maximum effect with a €600-€300,000 fine for "disrupting public events."

This horrible set of statutes has arisen from Spain's position as a flashpoint for anti-austerity protests, the European precursor to the Occupy Wall Street movement. Fines, fines and more fines await anyone who refuses to treat authority with the respect it's forcibly requiring citizens to show it.

A putsch in Athens to save allied Greece from enemy Russia is in preparation by the US and Germany, with backing from the non-taxpayers of Greece – the Greek oligarchs, Anglo-Greek shipowners, and the Greek Church. At the highest and lowest level of Greek government, and from Thessaloniki to Milvorni, all Greeks understand what is happening. Yesterday they voted overwhelmingly to resist. According to a high political figure in Athens, a 40-year veteran, “what is actually happening is a slow process of regime change.”

New interactive MAP details Israeli strikes a year after Gaza war

Human rights groups have launched a new interactive platform mapping Israeli attacks during the 2014 Gaza war. It includes satellite images, testimonies and footage tho “build an accurate picture of what actually happened” over the 50 days of war.

The online tool mapping Israeli attacks during the conflict in July and August 2014 is called ‘The Gaza Platform’. It was launched by Amnesty International and Forensic Architecture on Wednesday.

The “innovative tool for human rights research” presents a massive database containing satellite imagery, thousands of photographs, hundreds of personal testimonies and hours of footage from the scene including broadcast videos.

And when the government passed massive laws aimed at locking down the nation and opening the door to total government surveillance, the people believed it was done merely to keep them safe.

Donald Tusk urged Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras to turn to friends for help but the president of the European Council did not specify who those were.

It is clear who Tusk is referring to. He is attempting to dissuade Greece from entertaining any notions of partnership with Russia. In reality, Greece has no friends among the majority of the European Parliament and Commission, who are in the case of the former are little more than serial gravy-train passengers. In the case of the latter, they are unelected politburo-style bureaucrats and banksters' puppets. On the other hand, Greece has long-standing cultural ties with Russia.

Opal discovery on Mars may be key to proving ancient life on Red Planet

Researchers have discovered traces of opal on Mars, leading them to believe it may help prove that the Red Planet was once home to life. The gemstone was discovered in a Martian meteorite, which fell to Earth in 1911.

The opal was discovered by Glasgow University earth scientist Martin Lee and his team while examining the Nakhla meteorite, which fell from Mars to Egypt over a century ago.

After studying the space rock with a scanning electron microscope, the researchers found trace amounts of the gemstone, confirming readings from Martian rovers that opal indeed exists in the Red Planet’s crust.

The gemstone was likely created by the interaction of water with silica. It is the first time that a piece of Mars on Earth has been found to contain opal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Opal is water trapped in quartz. It does not in and of itself prove life. And in any event, life was found on Mars by the Viking mission in 1976 but ignored for political reasons.

Their subsequent wet dream was to impose renewed austerity on an interim, unelected technocratic government.

This past week, relentless scare tactics – deployed by Jeroen Dijsselbloem, the Eurogroup chairman, or European Commission (EC) president and certified opportunist Jean-Claude Juncker — asserted that voting “No” would mean a Grexit. Now, the real possibility of a Grexit is threatening to destroy the euro.

Inside 'billionaire summer camp': Tycoon Elon Musk brings wife he's already divorced twice while recently widowed Sheryl Sandberg is accompanied by a friend

The annual summer camp for billionaires kicked off in Sun Valley, Idaho on Tuesday - and attendees were up early for breakfast Wednesday morning.

Elon Musk, 43-year-old CEO of Tesla, led the swarm of moguls, arriving hand-in-hand with his wife, British actress Talulah Riley, 29, after tearing up their second set of divorce papers earlier this year.

Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook COO, arrived with a female friend, two months after the death of her husband, SurveyMonkey CEO David Goldberg. Last year they attended the conference together.

This year's appearance, wearing a ring on a chain around her neck, comes a day after Sandberg announced she is taking a seat on the board of SurveyMonkey to 'realize' Goldberg's vision.

Others spotted on the walk were Rupert Murdoch and one of his heirs Lachlan and Disney's beloved CEO Bob Iger and his wife Willow Bay. James Murdoch arrived separately with his wife.

The programme, which launched in May in Jordan and Turkey, was designed to train as many as 5,400 fighters a year and seen as a test of President Barack Obama's strategy of engaging local partners to combat ISIL fighters.

Clinton Lied About Subpoenas In CNN Interview

Of course, because this is Hillary Clinton we’re talking about, she couldn’t get through even the softest of softball interviews without lying.

“Well, let’s start from the beginning, everything I did was permitted,” Clinton insisted. “There was no law, no regulation, there was nothing that did not give me the full authority to decide how I was going to communicate.”

Perhaps you’ve heard of little things called the Freedom of Information Act and Federal Records Acts? Apparently Hillary Clinton hasn’t. She’s also evidently suffered a convenient attack of amnesia concerning the Obama Administration’s policies about the proper treatment of official correspondence – which is funny, because she was running the show when one of her employees got in hot water for doing the exact same thing. You’d think Keilar would have brought that up, since her network reported on it, but she apparently wasn’t interested in asking Clinton any follow-up questions or pressing her on incorrect statements.

Hillary Clinton: “People Should and Do Trust Me”

Below are the highlights pieced together from what has been publicized as the first exclusive one-on-one sit-down interview with Hillary since she announced her presidential run.

It’s painful to watch (and not just because it’s Hillary either). It’s like watching someone full-to-bursting with nearly four decades of lies and scandals try to act like a normal person in under five awkward, cagey, and defensive minutes.

The first cringe-inducer?

When CNN’s Brianna Keilar asks her, “Do you see any role that you’ve had in the sentiment that we’ve seen where people are questioning whether you are trustworthy?”

Hillary responds with that’s just a theme that’s been used against her and her husband for many, many years.

Just a theme used against you guys for many, many years? “Gee, I wonder why that is,” said no one ever (*cough Clinton body count *cough).

Throughout history, debt and war have been constant partners

There is this idea that the Greeks got themselves into this current mess because they paid themselves too much for doing too little. Well, maybe. But it’s not the complete picture. For the Greeks also got themselves into debt for the oldest reason in the book – one might even argue, for the very reason that public debt itself was first invented – to raise and support an army. The state’s need for quick money to raise an army is how industrial-scale money lending comes into business (in the face of the church’s historic opposition to usury). Indeed, in the west, one might even stretch to say that large-scale public debt began as a way to finance military intervention in the Middle East – ie the crusades. And just as rescuing Jerusalem from the Turks was the justification for massive military spending in the middle ages, so the fear of Turkey has been the reason given for recent Greek spending.

Planned US Coup in Greece?

Wherever neocon Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Victoria Nuland shows up (Hillary Clinton’s handpicked choice for the job), trouble usually follows.

Helmer says she’s “in charge of warmaking in Europe.” Her notorious involvement in Ukraine’s February 2014 coup is well documented.

According to Helmer, she gave Tsipras two ultimatums in Athens last March – surrender to Troika demands and remain allied with US-dominated NATO’s anti Russian agenda.”

Her spokeman Mark Toner said Washington is “focused on, frankly, the opposite (of Sunday’s referendum), which is finding a path forward that allows Greece to continue to make reforms (more austerity), return to growth (by letting Troika bandits rape its economy and population), and remain in the Eurozone.”

FBI and Comey Find New Bogeyman for Anti-Encryption Arguments: ISIS

After months of citing hypothetical crimes as a reason to give law enforcement a magical key to unlock encrypted digital messages, FBI Director James Comey has latched onto a new bogeyman: ISIS.

In a speech he gave in October 2014 as part of his coordinated push to make the case that the FBI is “going dark,” Comey leaned on examples of kidnappers and child abusers who texted details of their violent plots that law enforcement agents weren’t privy to.

But, as The Intercept reported shortly after, those examples were largely bogus and had nothing to do with encryption.

Now, in a preview of his appearance Wednesday before the Senate Intelligence Committee, Comey is playing the ISIS card, saying that it is becoming impossible for the FBI to stop the group’s recruitment and planned attacks. (He uses an alternate acronym, ISIL, for the Islamic State.)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sure, all we have to do is get ISIS to not write their own encryption software, rely on the government-approved back-doored systems, and all will be just peaches and cream!!!!!!

According to the CDC, heroin use in the U.S. has been growing at an "alarming" rate, with overdose fatalities doubling in the past few years. Darwin nods approvingly

Heroin use in the United States has grown at an "alarming rate," resulting in double the overdose deaths between 2011 and 2013, health officials said Tuesday.
A report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration found use of the recreational drug increased between 2002 and 2013 across multiple demographic groups -- gender, age and income level. The study found the biggest increase in use, though, was among groups who historically had lower rates of use, including women, and people with private insurance and higher incomes.

FBI raids Michigan Jewish college suspected of defrauding federal government

Federal agents raided the offices of a Jewish college that has prospered from millions of dollars in federal aid even though almost all its students live in Israel and hardly any of them graduate.

Federal officials declined to comment on the reason for the July 7 raid at Michigan Jewish Institute, in a suburb of Detroit.

But in 2012, the Forward showed how MJI’s assets soared as the college enrolled thousands of students in distance and online learning courses.

During a five-year period, MJI’s students claimed $25 million under the Federal Pell Grant Program, which is designed for the neediest American students.

Almost all those students took degree courses in Judaic studies at yeshivas and seminaries in Israel that they never completed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wonder if Hillary still thinks BDS is the big problem with colleges!

On a side note, the failure of these students to complete their courses underlines a common human trait; people do not respect or value things which they get for free. The more the American taxpayer showers all over Israel, the more disdainful of Americans' "generosity" Israel becomes!

TOP CORRUPT LEADERS IN THE WORLD

Corruption has been the coveted jewel in everybody’s crown since antiquity. Aristotelian philosophy believed that everybody who had power could become corrupt. Nietzsche said that we commit corruption only because there is financial gain. In the 19th century when those that had the power made politics apparently accessible even to the poor by paying politicians a salary in our democracies where already paving the way for their own wealth accumulation. Paying salaries to politicians for the first time so that the wealthy did not have the monopoly of the control of the function of decision making? Were they kidding us back then into believing that politics was democratic? Of course they were pulling the wool over our eyes into making us believe that everybody, whatever their status, would get to govern the country. What they were really doing was making sure that they were able to siphon of the greenbacks from the state, but this time making it look as if it were all above board.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Corruption has eaten the heart out of alleged representative government here in the US.

We used to be a government of the people by the people and for the people; we are now a goverment of the corporations, by the corporations, and for the corporations which own the American political process as never before.

The Kabuki-like process of elections in this country is a complete farce.

We the People never actually get a real choice in candidates, other than those which the corporations have chosen, because they know those candidates will "deliver" on their agendas.

Remember President Obama saying that he would have "the most transparent administration in history"?!? Wow, did that turn out to be a piece of hypocritical irony, looking at what has happened since President Obama took office.

Look at the secrecy involved in these "fast track" trade agreements, which were corporately purchased through donations to Congressional representatives.

Look at UPIgate; Benghazigate; Fast&Furiousgate; IRSgate; and the continued messes in Iraq, Syria, Somalia and Libya.

Can you possibly tell me, with a straight face, that the actions taken to remedy these issues were done with "transparency"?!?

Thinking people would have to say "no" to this question. In fact," HELL, NO!!" would be a more honest response.

And please don't think I am criticising the Democrats over and above the Republicans: they are equally complicit, for what they have done for their corporate masters, at the expense of their alleged constituents.

There have been many books written about the assassination of President Kennedy, so many, generating so much bewildering debate, in fact, that many people have given up trying to understand the event and its significance. But despite all that, I want to recommend without reservation this book by a Catholic theologian and peace activist, which is unique in many respects and provides an education that all supporters of peace and progress need as we struggle to overcome the danger of right-wing extremism.

WEBMASTER ADDITION: Let us not forget Israel, who wanted Kennedy replaced by Johnson so they could acquire nuclear weapons, and the Federal Reserve, responding to Kennedy's EO11110.

Baltimore Shooting: Three Killed, One Hurt Near University of Maryland

Three people were killed and a fourth was being treated in hospital after a shooting near the University of Maryland's Baltimore campus.

Two suspects opened fire after emerging from two light-colored vans that pulled over on W Fayette Street at 10:37 p.m. on Tuesday, campus police said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Staged shooting to be blamed on "lone nut" to push the gun-grab agenda? Looks too sloppy to be a mafia hit.

Sorry, Slate: Oregon Did Put a ‘Gag Order’ on Those Christian Bakers

On Thursday, The Daily Signal published an article about Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI) Commissioner Brad Avakian ordering Aaron and Melissa Klein, Christian bakers who had refused to make a wedding cake for a lesbian couple, to pay the couple $135,000 for “emotional” damages and issuing a gag order against the Kleins.

On Monday, Slate published an article criticizing The Daily Signal’s coverage headlined “No, Oregon Did Not ‘Gag’ That Anti-Gay Bakery.”

While that’s a great, provocative headline, Slate’s headline is simply not true.

Greece – The Triumph of Democracy – the first day of a New Beginning

Congratulations! – With a resounding “OXI” = “No” – with 61% the Greek rejected the troika imposed austerity. They joined a majority of economists worldwide, including from the IMF, who also know that austerity doesn’t help recovery – and certainly doesn’t wipe out debt, the noose around a country’s neck.

But – what does the decisive no-vote mean for the 39% yes-voters? – Do they want more of austerity? – Hardly. Or were they manipulated with fear-mongering by the mostly privately owned western media, which also dominate Greece?– Blackmailed by the threats of Brussels? – Were they afraid of what’s next? – Western presstitute media propaganda for a “yes” vote, spiked with fear, threats and purposeful confusion was horrendous.

New York Stock Exchange shut down over tech glitch

The New York Stock Exchange had to shut down trading abruptly shortly before noon Wednesday over what officials said was a technical malfunction that froze computers on the market’s fabled trading floor.

One of the world’s biggest stock exchanges had seen shares trending down throughout the morning because of economic crises in Greece and China, but all trading halted at 11:32 a.m. as data on trades and prices apparently stopped coming into the traders’ computer screens.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Could this be the start of the virtual 9-11?

The website for the Wall Street Journal was also down for a while!

VIRTUAL 9-11: Will the US & Israel Hack The US Banking System Computers and Falsely Blame It On Iran (or Syria or Russia or China)?

So what it looks like is being planned, and pre-sold to the American people with all these stories about celebrities' personal information being hacked and made public (an activity that produces no profit for the hackers other than news headlines), and the "Syrian" (nudge nudge wink wink) hack of the AP Twitter feed that shocked the US stock market, is that the US Government will itself take down the US financial computers, and blame it on Iran /Russia/ China/Al Qaeda/Syria/Arabs and others to be named as convenient. This gets Wall Street and Washington DC off the hook, because now the financial melt-down is an act of war, rather than the result of decades of Wall Street crime and corruption and the predations of Private Central Banks.

Pluto’s moon Charon could have mountains named ‘Spock’ and ‘Mordor’

When NASA's New Horizons spacecraft speeds past Pluto on July 14, it's going to spot a lot of nooks and crannies on Pluto and its moons that we've never seen before. On Tuesday, the team submitted a list of proposed names for them.

Why can't the hills of Hydra get names that scientists think up on the spot? As charming as it is to imagine mission scientists being struck by inspiration upon the moment they spot a new feature, that's not how space naming works: Everything has to be approved by the International Astronomical Union.

NYSE trading halted; stocks down 1% as China, Greece weigh

Trading on the New York Stock Exchange was suspended in late-morning trade on Wednesday with U.S. stocks down about 1 percent on Wednesday as continued concerns about Greece and the extended selloff in the Chinese market pressured investor sentiment.

"We've had some technical malfunctions. Some may be related to connectivity with other exchanges. I believe we're going to have a temporary pause certainly in a variety of stocks perhaps floor wide," Art Cashin, director of floor operations at the NYSE, told CNBC.

Hillary Clinton Pledges to Defend Israeli Apartheid and Fight BDS Movement in Letter to Mega-Donor

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton sent a letter to media mogul Haim Saban, a mega-donor, assuring him that she would make countering the global Boycott, Divestment & Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel a priority. She invoked a recent terrorist attack against Jews in Paris to condemn BDS and specifically sought Saban’s advice on how to fight back.

“I am writing to express my alarm over the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement, or ‘BDS,’ a global effort to isolate the State of Israel by ending commercial and academic exchanges,” Clinton wrote [PDF]. “I am seeking your advice on how we can work together—across party lines and with a diverse array of voices—to reverse this trend with information and advocacy, and fight back against further attempts to isolate and delegitimize Israel.”

Clinton expressed serious concern over comparisons between Israel and South African apartheid.

If Hillary sucks up to Israel any harder than she already is, Bill's gonna get jealous!

Anti-Iran Lobby Steps Up Its Game Before Deadline for P5+1 Talks

The U.S. and Iranian nuclear negotiators have just announced a one week extension of their nuclear talks. If, as expected, there is an agreement next week, it will open a new stage of tension in the process leading to its final formal ratification by all parties. For then, the U.S. Congress will have 30 days to vote the agreement up or down. This vote, forced on an unwilling president by his own party’s Senate members several weeks ago, poses a new threat. For the Israel Lobby, it offers a new opportunity to sabotage the deal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mind you, this is the same Congress that pore-approves wars and fast-tracks trade deals because they can't be bothered doing their actual job, but when Israel says jump, they all shout "Ouch, my KNEES!!!"

Berlin pours bucket of flat beer on Patriot missile hack report

Germany's Defence Department told Die Welt says it has "no evidence" of the attack and says such an attack is "extremely unlikely".

German public sector magazine Behoerden Spiegel says one attack vector may be the sensor shooter interoperability which provides real-time information between command and weapons systems.

Another could be the overall control chips which direct weapons guidance.

Together the magazine speculates attackers could have stolen data and accessed missile control.

Former MI5 agent and whistleblower, Annie Machon, told RT the usually highly secure US weapons could contain backdoors.

Russell later spoke about how having a gun “absolutely” saved their lives, and had some tough words for those who do not own guns, yet advocate for government control.

“If you don’t want to carry, please don’t.” Russell said. “Then, shut the f–k up about it. Make your own

Opportunity Mars rover bypasses dodgy flash memory, now relies on RAM

NASA has revealed plans for its laser-armed, nuclear powered Opportunity rover's next few months of Martian trundling, but says this will be done without using the machine's flash memory whenever possible.

Opportunity's been on Mars since 2004 and was expected to work for three months. Glitches in the rover's flash memory, which first became apparent with an ”amnesia” incident in late 2014, are therefore thoroughly excusable. NASA re-formatted the rover's flash to try and sort things out, but the problems persisted.

NASA now says “occurrences increased again later in the spring” and has therefore decided to avoid using flash because doing so glitches the rover and necessitates more remediation attempts.

Opportunity is instead relying on RAM and uploading data every day, instead of storing it in flash and sending it home when convenient.

The impossible war on encryption

"Britain is not a state that is trying to search through everybody's emails and invade their privacy," according to Prime Minister David Cameron. "We just want to ensure that terrorists do not have a safe space in which to communicate."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

BULL BISCUITS! Of course they want to read everyone's email and the proof is that banning encryption will not find terrorists because terrorists can create their own systems of encryption strong enough to defeat the NSA and GCHQ. I know because we did it! We created 6 NSA code challenges and not one was solved. And I am not a professional encryption expert and only a moderately decent programmer.

So forbidding law abiding citizens from using encryption while being unable to read encryption created by real criminals and terrorists leaves us with the inescapable conclusion that David Cameron is in fact about to spy on all the law-abiding British people, to make sure they are not thinking those double-plus ungood thoughts!

The New York Times Urges the Troika to "Make an Example of Greece"

It is often the moral and economic blindness of New York Times articles about the EU crisis that is most striking. The newest entry in this field is entitled "Now Europe Must Decide Whether to Make an Example of Greece." That is a chilling phrase most associated in our popular culture with a Consigliere and his Don deciding whether to order a mob "hit." It is, therefore, fitting (albeit over the top) as a criticism of the troika's economic, political, and propaganda war against the Greek people. Except that the article is actually another salvo in that war.
