IMF Tries To Put Out Fire From Bombshell Greece Leak, But Doesn’t Apologize

The International Monetary Fund’s managing director told Greek prime minister Alexis Tsipras on Sunday that the IMF remains committed to good faith negotiations, trying to assuage concerns raised by a Saturday leak.

Christine Lagarde dismissed the possibility the IMF would use underhanded tactics to pressure Greece in the letter, which was also posted on the IMF’s website.

The Huffington Post first reported on Saturday that Tsipras had asked Lagarde whether Greece could “trust” the IMF in light of leaked remarks by IMF officials suggesting that a crisis-inducing “event” was necessary to get Greece to comply with IMF austerity requests.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"When the world around the IMF goes downhill, we thrive. We become extremely active because we lend money, we earn interest and charges and all the rest of it, and the institution does well. When the world goes well and we’ve had years of growth, as was the case back in 2006 and 2007, the IMF doesn’t do so well both financially and otherwise." -- Chrstine Lagarde

Vietnam War at 50: Have We Learned Nothing?

Some 60,000 Americans were killed fighting in that war more than 8,000 miles away. More than a million Vietnamese military and civilians also lost their lives. The US government did not accept that it had pursued a bad policy in Vietnam until the bitter end. But in the end the war was lost and we went home, leaving the destruction of the war behind. For the many who survived on both sides, the war would continue to haunt them.

It was thought at the time that we had learned something from this lost war. The War Powers Resolution was passed in 1973 to prevent future Vietnams by limiting the president’s ability to take the country to war without the Constitutionally-mandated Congressional declaration of war. But the law failed in its purpose and was actually used by the war party in Washington to make it easier to go to war without Congress.

Such legislative tricks are doomed to failure when the people still refuse to demand that elected officials follow the Constitution.

Aging voting machines threaten election integrity

Imagine you went to your basement and dusted off the laptop or mobile phone that you used in 2002. What would happen if you tried to turn it on? We don’t have to guess. Around the country this election year, people are going into storage, pulling out computers that date back to 2002 and asking us to vote on them.

Following an election meltdown of epic proportions in 2000, the federal government provided more than US$2 billion to update the nation’s voting infrastructure. More than a decade later, these voting machines are approaching the end of their expected lifespans. Experts estimate that a reasonable lifespan for electronic voting machines (which are computers, running mainly on laptop technology developed in the 1990s) is in the 10- to 15-year range.

AMERICAN UNIVERSITY LAW FACULTY MEMBERS DISGRACE THEMSELVES

Recently, a student at American University Washington College of Law put a note on the door of a law professor stating “All Lives Matter.” This expression of what ought to be truism caused the AU law faculty to freak out.

Nearly sixty faculty members and staff signed a letter calling this an “incidence of intolerance.” A sounder position would hold that objecting to the statement “All Lives Matter” as a response to the statement “Black Lives Matter” smacks of intolerance because it places one racial group on a higher level than others.

Palestinian on the run from Israeli soldiers for a week — is 12 years old

The father of a 12-year-old Palestinian boy on the run for a week from Israeli soldiers in the occupied West Bank has told Middle East Eye that he fears his son will be killed if caught. Ramzi Abu Ajamia has been in hiding for the past seven nights, the boy’s father, Nasir Abu Ajamia said from their family home in Bethlehem’s Dheisha refugee camp. Israeli forces first showed up at the family’s home on 24 March, raiding the house and detaining Ramzi’s older brother. Ramzi said he had no idea why Israel was seeking to detain him. He says he attended protests against Israeli occupation, where rocks were thrown. “I don’t go to the clashes outside of the camp, but when soldiers come to us inside the camp, yeah I go out with the other boys – but that’s it – only when they come to us,” he said, speaking to MEE during a furtive visit to the family home. “I can’t explain why they want me, other than it’s my turn. Tomorrow it will be another kid’s [turn]."

No wonder we've stopped saving - this year's cash Isa rates are so derisory, the banks are embarrassed to advertise them...

There’s an innocent-sounding phrase that should get savers' alarm bells ringing: ‘ask in branch for details’.

It used to be that banks would trumpet their Isa rates. They’d boast of them in newspaper and online adverts and on posters in bank branch windows (back when there were bank branches).

But this year rates are so pitiful that it seems even providers are embarrassed to admit them. The poster below, currently pinned up in Post Office branches, is typical.

So far gone are the days of posters with massive percentage signs that this one doesn’t even mention the available interest rates in the small print. Only if you ask specifically will they admit what rates they’re offering.

Sanders is in Jewish tradition that rejected exceptionalist nationalism of Zionism

Jesse Alexander Myerson has an excellent meditation on Bernie Sanders’s throw-back Jewish identity at the Village Voice. There is a romance in the piece: Yiddish socialists who fought their persecution in Europe brought the fight for emancipation to the U.S. and transformed our country (that was a long time before neoconservatism and neoliberalism also transformed our country). And the piece is religious, too, inasmuch as Myerson quotes Scripture.

But the ending is terrific. It clearly identifies the sociocultural changes inside the Jewish community that made Zionism an ethos for the affluent. And clearly links anti-Zionism with a Jewish progressive tradition, of which Bernie Sanders is a part. Anti-Zionism is coming in, folks. Myerson’s piece is on the front page of the Village Voice, with the headline, “Heretic.” The Zionist/ant-Zionist debate is beginning to happen.

A play about martyrdom in the second intifada that has been widely praised is playing to sold-out audiences on campuses across the country and you should check it out if you get a chance. The show is called There Is a Field, and the playwright is the prolific activist/author Jen Marlowe.

Bernie Sanders supporters hold massive #OccupyCNN protest over lack of coverage

Hundreds of protesters took to the streets of Hollywood outside the CNN headquarters on Sunday afternoon to voice their frustration with the lack of coverage of Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.

Protesters used the hashtags #OccupyCNN and #BernieBlackout to organize and speak out against the unequal time given to covering Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump over Sanders. Last Saturday, Sanders won the Hawaii, Washington and Alaska primaries by large numbers but the network barely covered the news, activists say downplaying the victories. This while giving a disproportionate amount of time to covering Donald Trump’s latest antics.

Hundreds abused by 50 clergy over 40 years but federal prosecutors undecided on charges

Federal prosecutors aren’t yet certain if they’ll be filing racketeering charges against a Roman Catholic diocese after a grand jury found evidence that two former bishops assisted in the cover-up of sexual abuse to hundreds of children by more than 50 clergy over a 40-year period.

The Altoona-Johnstown diocese in Pennsylvania sparked further investigation when Reverend Joseph Maurizio, Jr was prosecuted and convicted of molesting two local children during missionary trips to Honduras.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Over the weekend, Claire and I watched another movie which I am going to recommend, "Spotlight", which tells the story of how the Boston Globe ripped the lid off of the clergy pedophile scandal in Boston. As is apparently the case in Pennsylvania, officials enslaved by their belief in a God knew this was going on, but refused to do anything about it, until the problem had reached epic proportions.

Add this film (which won the Best Picture Oscar) to your list of films to watch. This is movie-making (and journalism) at its best, dragging the corruptions of the rich and powerful into the light of public scrutiny.

Are any of the names in the Panama Papers linked with the Clinton Foundation? They are refiling their taxes for not reporting Foreign Donations accurately for at least three years.

So far we have four names: Bidzina Ivanishvill, Prince Salman, Sultan Al-Nahyan, Petro Poroshenko .

http://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-election-clinton-taxes-exclusive...

For three years in a row beginning in 2010, the Clinton Foundation reported to the IRS that it received zero in funds from foreign and U.S. governments, a dramatic fall-off from the tens of millions of dollars in foreign government contributions reported in preceding years.
Those entries were errors, according to the foundation: several foreign governments continued to give tens of millions of dollars toward the foundation's work on climate change and economic development through this three-year period. Those governments were identified on the foundation's annually updated donor list, along with broad indications of how much each had cumulatively given since they began donating.

Death by overwork on rise among Japan’s vulnerable workers

Japan is witnessing a record number of compensation claims related to death from overwork, or karoshi, a phenomenon previously associated with the long-suffering salaryman that is increasingly afflicting young and female employees.

Labor demand, with 1.28 jobs per applicant, is the highest since 1991, which should help Prime Minister Shinzo Abe draw more people into the workforce to counter the effect of a shrinking population, but lax enforcement of labor laws means some businesses are simply squeezing more out of employees, sometimes with tragic consequences.

Claims for compensation for karoshi rose to a record high of 1,456 in the year ending in March 2015, according to labor ministry data, with cases concentrated in health care, social services, shipping and construction, which are all facing chronic worker shortages.

In March, less than 5,000 refugees entered Germany from Austria, the German Interior Ministry reported on Saturday, compared to 38,570 in February and 64,700 in January.

10 things we've learnt from the leaked Panama Papers

The hidden wealth of some of the world’s most prominent leaders, politicians and celebrities has been revealed by an unprecedented leak of millions of documents that show some of the ways in which the rich can exploit secretive offshore tax regimes.

Dubbed the Panama Files, the 11 million documents were leaked from a Panamanian law firm called Mossack Fonseca.

They show how the company has helped clients launder money, dodge sanctions and evade tax.

The company says it has operated beyond reproach for 40 years and has never been charged with criminal wrong-doing.

The Day Free Speech Died at Harvard Law School

There is a perception that being liberal is synonymous with tolerance. As youth tends to spawn idealism, it would follow that the most liberal campuses are home to the most tolerant student body.

However, after nearly three years of study at Harvard Law School, I have found that a significant number of the most liberal students tend to be the least tolerant of opposing viewpoints.

In late 2014, during my second year at Harvard Law School, a student group called Students For Inclusion created a blog entitled Socratic Shortcomings. Its commitment, we are told, is to “[foster] productive and contextualized conversations on matters related to race, gender and class.” The site allows students—and anyone really—to post anonymously about events at Harvard Law School.

FLASHBACK - MARTIN LUTHER KING - THE FATAL SHOT CAME FROM A DIFFERENT DIRECTION

Just moments after Dr. Martin Luther King was killed by a sniper's bullet, a photographer took the above picture. Dr. King lies on the balcony floor. The witnesses are all pointing in the direction the fatal shot was fired from. There is no confusion among the witnesses as to where the source of the shot was. They are not confused by echoes. There is no uncertainty. All three witnesses are pointing in exactly the same direction.

The official story is that these men are pointing at the bathroom window in the rear of the rooming house from which James Earl Ray is supposed to have fired a gunshot.

But is that where the witnesses are pointing?

As part of the research, Ted Wilburn went back to the Lorraine Motel, to the very spot where Martin Luther King was shot, and took a photograph of the crime scene location that shows a great deal of the surroundings.

SZ said it decided to analyze the data in cooperation with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ).

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly asked John Kerry to publicly state that Israel does not carry out extrajudicial killings, after a group of U.S. lawmakers asked the secretary of state to investigate such claims.

Meanwhile, Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., the lead lawmaker making the request, rebuked Netanyahu for his initial response to the revelation of the letter, saying the Israeli leader misunderstood the relevant law, which requires defunding military units underwritten by U.S. government funds should they be found in violation of U.S. human rights norms.

The Times of Israel reported that Netanyahu made the call to Kerry Friday.

Priebus warns of 'consequences' to Trump's talk of independent bid

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus said on Sunday that comments made by Donald Trump noting he's open to an independent presidential bid may make it more difficult for the Republican front-runner to secure the nomination.

"Those kinds of comments, I think, have consequences," Priebus said on ABC's "This Week."

LA's new rule: homeless people are only allowed to own one trashcan's worth of things

A new law passed by the LA city council prohibits homeless people from owning more belongings than can fit in a 60-gallon trashcan with the lid on, and allows police to summarily confiscate any tents that are still standing on public property during daylight hours. The law is a response to Los Angeles's epidemic of homelessness -- a rise in homelessness that's clocked in at 20% of two years.

The police could be controlling your self-driving car

One of the biggest issues will be the rules under which public infrastructures and public safety officers may be empowered to override how autonomous vehicles are controlled. It is not hard to imagine why they might want such override power. One is for traffic control. As AVs proliferate there are many advantages to having them talk with intelligent roadways, the better to use scarce freeway space. Controls may also be imposed to leave lanes clear for emergency vehicles or crowded busses. Road conditions that are hard to detect by AV sensors, like weather-related lane closures, may also be more efficiently and fairly handled by having roadways or emergency crews redirect AVs away from problematic lanes, as well as around police, fire, and EMS activity. Overrides could be used to restrict certain vehicles from sensitive locations, like military sites.

America's teachers are being trained in a harsh interrogation technique that produces false confessions

The Reid Technique is the go-to method for coercing false confessions in America's police interrogation rooms, and now it's being taught to America's schoolteachers, just as schools are using "zero-tolerance" policies and on-site cops to re-characterize school discipline problems as criminal matters, creating a school-to-prison pipeline. John E. Reid and Associates originated the technique, which involves "minimization" (the interrogator downplays the seriousness of the offense) and "maximization" (the interrogator threatens the accused with terrible, lasting punishment for failing to confess).

The Republicans Are Truly Right-Wing Radicals: The GOP Has Finally Destroyed the Political Press' Most Destructive Narrative

The truth is, anyone with clear vision recognized a long time ago that the GOP has transformed itself since 2009 into an increasingly radical political party, one built on complete and total obstruction. It’s a party designed to make governing difficult, if not impossible, and one that plotted seven years ago to shred decades of Beltway protocol and oppose every inch of Obama’s two terms. (“If he was for it, we had to be against it,” former Republican Ohio Sen. George Voinovich once explained.)

And for some of us, it didn’t take Donald Trump’s careening campaign to confirm the destructive state of the GOP. But if it’s the Trump circus that finally opens some pundits’ eyes, so be it.

How Israel's Media Propaganda Dominates the American Mind

In the conflict over the land of Palestine, Israel’s overpowering military superiority has produced decisive battlefield victories. But just as crucial to Israeli dominance in that region is its supremacy in the U.S. news media, which is captured in the title of an important new film from the Media Education Foundation, The Occupation of the American Mind: Israel’s Public Relations War in the United States.

9/11: The FBI Report and the Dancing  Israelis Standing Truth on its Ear

At 3:31 p.m., the FBI put out a “be on the lookout” (BOLO) all points bulletin and, about an hour later, East Rutherford police officers Scott DeCarlo and Sgt. Dennis Rivelli identified the white van, then stopped it on Rt. 3, near Giants stadium. The cops approached and instructed the occupants to exit the vehicle, but the driver refused and the officers, now with guns drawn, had to physically remove the occupants (there were now five of them). The men were hand-cuffed, read their rights, and taken into custody.

All of them were between 22-27 years of age. Their names were Sivan Kurzburg, his brother Paul Kurzburg, Yaron Shmuel, Oded Ellner and Omer Marmari. The driver [Sivan Kurzburg] reportedly told officer DeCarlo, “We are Israeli. We are not your problem. Your problems are our problems. The Palestinians are the problem.”i Another occupant falsely said, “We were on the West Side highway in New York City during the incident.”

Are Vaccines Such “Holy Cows” That They Can’t Be Condemned?

By Catherine J. Frompovich

Vaccines cause the very diseases they are supposed to ‘immunize’ against. How’s that efficacious? It certainly is efficacious for vaccine makers’ financial interests, but certainly not for those who contract vaccine-induced polio or experience the adverse events associated with many vaccines, particularly the HPV ‘anti-cervical cancer’ vaccines, which are now given to young boys, who don’t have cervixes.

Before you cry “foul ball,” I know why they’re mandated for young boys. Tsk! Tsk! Tsk!

When the world goes well and we’ve had years of growth, as was the case back in 2006 and 2007, the IMF doesn’t do so well both financially and otherwise."

According to a new and completely unsurprising academic study, the Associated Press published "material directly from Joseph Goebbels’s infamous propaganda machine" leading up to and during WWII, including anti-Soviet propaganda used to cover up some of worst crimes committed by Nazi Germany.

German historian Harriet Scharnberg discovered that "instead of printing pictures of the days-long Lviv pogroms with its thousands of Jewish victims, the American press was only supplied with photographs showing the victims of the Soviet police and ‘brute’ Red Army war criminals.”

Top 20 Doublespeak Terms to Listen for in Modern Propaganda

Doublespeak is a language that is alive and well in our world today. Doublespeak can refer to terms that are euphemisms (mild expressions designed to hide harsher or more direct ones), deliberately ambiguous (expressions designed to hide the truth) or actual inversions (outright lies which state the opposite of the truth). Although he never used the term doublespeak in his book 1984, many associate doublespeak with George Orwell. After all, it was Orwell who famously wrote that the motto of the totalitarian ruling party in 1984 was “War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength” – an example of an inversion. Orwell did however use the term newspeak to refer to a new kind of language which drastically reduced the scope of available words and terms, so as to concurrently reduce the scope of possible free thought among the ruled population.

HEALTHCARE CEO TOLD NURSES TO FATALLY OVERDOSE PATIENTS TO INCREASE PROFIT

The investigation began in 2014, when Novus was facing allegations of offering services to patients who did not apply for them. Novus was also accused of collecting funds for “unnecessary” services and procedures. During the investigation, Harris’ underlying scheme was discovered. Text messages the CEO sent to employees revealed he regularly instructed nurses to overdose patients with medication, often morphine, to hasten people’s deaths.

“You need to make this patient go bye-bye,” read one text from the executive. “Find patients who would die within 24 hours,” Harris reportedly told other healthcare executives, according to the FBI’s affidavit.

The FBI alleges Harris “instructed a nurse to administer overdoses to three patients and directed another employee to increase a patient’s medication to four-times the maximum allowed.” Both the nurse and the other employee refused to carry out the orders.
