THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

"If the debt which the banking companies owe be a blessing to anybody, it is to themselves alone, who are realizing a solid interest of eight or ten per cent on it. As to the public, these companies have banished all our gold and silver medium, which, before their institution, we had without interest, which never could have perished in our hands, and would have been our salvation now in the hour of war; instead of which they have given us two hundred million of froth and bubble, on which we are to pay them heavy interest, until it shall vanish into air... We are warranted, then, in affirming that this parody on the principle of 'a public debt being a public blessing,' and its mutation into the blessing of private instead of public debts, is as ridiculous as the original principle itself. In both cases, the truth is, that capital may be produced by industry, and accumulated by economy; but jugglers only will propose to create it by legerdemain tricks with paper." -- Thomas Jefferson to John W. Eppes, 1813.

Iraq warplane accidentally bombs Baghdad, killing seven

An Iraqi government warplane accidentally bombed eastern Baghdad on Monday, killing at least seven people, security and medical officials said.

The bomb fell from an Sukhoi warplane because of a "technical problem", security spokesman Brigadier General Saad Maan said in a statement.

"One of the bombs became stuck because of a technical problem, and during its [the aircraft's] return to base it fell on three houses in Baghdad Jadida," he said.

Greece debt crisis: Finance Minister Varoufakis resigns

Greece's outspoken finance minister has resigned, hours after voters backed his call to reject creditors' demands for more austerity in a referendum.

Yanis Varoufakis said it was felt his departure would be helpful in finding a solution to the country's debt crisis.

Eurozone finance ministers, with whom he repeatedly clashed, had wanted him removed, Mr Varoufakis explained.

Bankers Plan to Raid Deposits After Greeks "Rise Up Against Debt Bondage"

More austerity and new rounds of loans? Voters in Greece’s emergency referendum were overwhelmingly against it. Whatever happens next, they stood up to the authoritarian tactics of the European Union. Hurrah.

Greeks voted overwhelmingly to reject creditors’ proposal of more austerity measures in return for rescue loans, in the country’s first referendum in 41 years Sunday.

Hillary Ropes Off "Everyday" Reporters, Creates Media Spectacle

In case anyone forgot, Hillary Clinton — whose demands for a keynote speech appearance include a quarter of a million dollars, a private jet ("a Gulfstream 450 or larger), and $1,000 for a stenographer — is running for "everyday Americans."

Presumably, these are the "folks" who make up the 83% of American workers classified by the BLS as "non supervisory" and probably include those whose job it is to report the news, which is why we were surprised (not really) to see that when it comes to "everyday" reporters, covering a Clinton rally means being herded along like cattle inside a moving rope pen which looks to have been designed to separate the former First Lady from 'the rest of us'.

Greek turmoil set to shake global markets out of complacency as sell-off looms

Financial markets were braced for their worst period of turmoil since the height of the eurozone crisis three years ago, after Greeks chose to overwhelmingly reject the bail-out terms of their creditors, throwing the country on a collision course with the eurozone.

The prolonged period of uncertainty is expected to roil European equities and see investors flock to safe haven assets such as US and German government bonds.

"Look initially for a general sell-off in global equities, along with price pressures on the bonds issued by Greece, other peripheral eurozone economies and emerging markets," warned Mohamed El-Erian, chief economic adviser at Allianz.

Greece's 'Big No' is set to ensure the country's creaking banking system will continue to be starved of liquidity, keeping banks closed beyond the end of their mandated holiday which is due to end on Tuesday.

Samaras, 64, had faced calls to resign in January after his party was beaten in national elections by the radical leftist Syriza party of Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras.

We should have done it a week ago." Hardliners within the party - though not Mr Varoufakis - are demanding the head of governor Stournaras, a holdover appointee from the past conservative government. They want a new team installed, one that is willing to draw on the central bank's secret reserves, and to take the provocative step in extremis of creating euros.

Greeks defy Europe with overwhelming referendum 'No'

The astonishingly strong victory by the 'No' camp overturned opinion polls that had predicted an outcome too close to call. It leaves Greece in uncharted waters: risking financial and political isolation within the euro zone and a banking collapse if creditors refuse further aid.

But for millions of Greeks the outcome was an angry message to creditors that Greece can longer accept repeated rounds of austerity that, in five years, had left one in four without a job. Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has denounced the price paid for aid as "blackmail" and a national "humiliation".

Because humans have interests, and no two humans’ interests align perfectly, it is often the case that the interests of reddit, Inc. come into conflict with reddit, the users. Sometimes this means too much advertising, but more generally it’s that reddit, Inc. focuses a little more on converting content into money so they can pay their bills and give a return to their investors, and a little less on building better tools and giving a better experience for the users of reddit.

New Horizons space probe suffers glitch on approach to Pluto

NASA scientists were working on Sunday to revive the New Horizons spacecraft after it suffered a computer malfunction just nine days before it was due to fly past Pluto.

The probe has been barreling toward the dwarf planet and its primary moon, Charon, since January 2006.

On Saturday, an unknown glitch caused New Horizons to switch to a backup computer, which triggered an 81-minute break in radio communications with mission controllers at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, Md., NASA said in a status report.

"Full recovery is expected to take from one to several days," NASA said. "New Horizons will be temporarily unable to collect science data during that time."

Clinton’s super PAC, which is dedicated to airing ads supporting her presidential bid and attacking her opponents, revealed Thursday that it had raised a total of $15.6 million during the first half of the year.

Other heavy donors included DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg and director J.J. Abrams and his wife Katie McGrath, as well as California investor Herb Sandler and Boston philanthropist Barbara Lee.

Imagine trying to buy a song on iTunes, but finding your credit card payment blocked. You can’t pay your cloud storage subscription, either, even though you have the money. Apple just won’t accept your card, and you’re about to lose most of your files.

That’s the situation many people in Greece are waking up to this week in the wake of the country’s new capital control laws. Technically, Greek lawmakers passed the capital control laws to stop people from evacuating all their money to overseas bank accounts and draining cash from the country’s struggling economy, but the laws also prevent everyday consumers from making even the smallest credit payments to foreign companies, including Apple, PayPal, and other staples of online life.

No exit polls were conducted, but three opinion polls by GPO, Metron Analysis and MRB all showed the 'No' camp' ahead by three points. A poll by Marc estimated 49.5 to 54.5 percent of Greeks voted 'No' compared to 45.5 to 50.5 percent voting 'Yes', based on surveys conducted through the week.

The polls were released after voting ended on Sunday because of a ban on the publication of polls on the day before a vote is held.

The bin Laden death mythology

The White House’s story of how US special forces hunted down and assassinated arch terrorist Osama bin Laden in his secret lair in Pakistan is unraveling.

The official narrative of the bin Laden raid is that for over a decade, US intelligence hunted for the terror chief until a surveillance/torture-enabled breakthrough tracked him to a secret compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. On 1st May 2011, US Navy Seals entered the compound and assassinated him in a furious firefight.

The operation demonstrated how far the US military intelligence community had come since the days of 9/11, proving how its disparate agencies had now developed a tremendous capacity to share and process often obscure intelligence data, to guide precision covert counter-terror missions.

After killing bin Laden, the al-Qaeda leader was buried at sea. When the raid was officially announced, Pakistan, a key US ally in the fight against al-Qaeda, was incensed at the US operation on its own soil.

This Is Why The Euro Is Finished

The IMF Debt Sustainability Analysis report on Greece that came out this week has caused a big stir. We now know that the Fund’s analysts confirm what Syriza has been saying ever since they came to power 5 months ago: Greece needs debt relief, lots of it, and fast.

We also know that Europe tried to silence the report. But what’s most interesting is that this has been going on for months, as per Reuters. Ergo, the IMF has known about the -preliminary- analysis for months, and kept silent, while at the same time ‘negotiating’ with Greece on austerity and bailouts.

And if you dig a bit deeper still, there’s no avoiding the fact that the IMF hasn’t merely known this for months, it’s known it for years. The Greek Parliamentary Debt Committee reported three weeks ago that it has in its possession an IMF document from 2010(!) that confirms the Fund knew even at that point in time.

US Senate hawks move to scuttle Iran deal by extending sanctions: Analyst

A recent legislative move by US Senate hawks to extend sanctions against Iran for 10 additional years is nothing but an attempt to “scuttle” an emerging nuclear deal, says an antiwar activist.

“This is an effort to scuttle the negotiated deal between Iran and the P5+1 over Iran’s nuclear program,” Joe Iosbaker, a leader of the United National Antiwar Coalition, told Press TV on Friday.

Senators Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) and Bob Menendez (D-NJ) have filed an amendment to the national defense budget that would extend congressional sanctions against Iran.

If passed, the amendment would extend the Sanctions Act of 1996 until the end of 2026. The current act is set to expire at the end of 2016.

Scare-mongering Greeks to Vote “Yes” on Sunday. The Threat of Bail-in “Haircuts” on Bank Deposits

Troika supporters are going all-out to scare Greeks to accept what most harms them – endless austerity until the entire population (except its elites) is forced into impoverished indentured servitude under Western bankster rules.

The latest 11th hour rumor claims “Greek banks prepare plan to raid deposits to avert collapse,” according to the Financial Times.

A so-called “bail-in” would impose at least a 30% haircut on deposits over 8,000 euros, the FT said citing unnamed bankers and businesspeople. It would resemble the 2013 Cyprus plan imposing haircuts on uninsured deposits over 100,000 euros.

An unnamed source said the bail-in “would take place in the context of an overall restructuring of the bank sector once Greece is back in a bailout programme. This is not something that is going to happen immediately.”

Media consider alternatives to Hillary in light of email controversy

After months of nearly blackout coverage of other possible Democratic presidential nominees, the national media is giving renewed attention to potential Hillary Clinton challengers in light of her email controversy.

During her tenure as secretary of state, Clinton, a likely presidential candidate, exclusively used a personal email while conducting government business. The email was registered to a server based out of Clinton's personal residence. Clinton's email correspondence practices were in violation of federal rules dictating that electronic communication by government officials must be stored on official servers.

The news led to a spate of stories speculating on whether the controversy would serve as a boon to Clinton's potential 2016 challengers, including Vice President Joe Biden, former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb and former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley. All three have publicly said they're considering a run for president.

According to Sievers’ website, she also specialized in holistic health treatments. She was allegedly murdered by an unknown attacker in an upscale neighborhood that experiences very little crime.

Each of these doctors were described as very healthy people with no major health problems, and no real reason for anyone to target them for murder, nor did they show any signs of depression.

Greece — The One Biggest Lie You Are Being Told By The Media

Every single mainstream media has the following narrative for the economic crisis in Greece: the government spent too much money and went broke; the generous banks gave them money, but Greece still can’t pay the bills because it mismanaged the money that was given. It sounds quite reasonable, right?

Except that it is a big fat lie … not only about Greece, but about other European countries such as Spain, Portugal, Italy and Ireland who are all experiencing various degrees of austerity. It was also the same big, fat lie that was used by banks and corporations to exploit many Latin American, Asian and African countries for many decades.

Greece did not fail on its own. It was made to fail.

CRIMINAL Banks Plan to END World Financial Regulations

It’s almost impossible to keep anything secret these days – not even the core text of a hyper-secret trade deal, the Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA), which has spent the last two years taking shape behind the hermetically sealed doors of highly secure locations around the world.
According to the agreement’s provisional text, the document is supposed to remain confidential and concealed from public view for at least five years after being signed! But now, thanks to WikiLeaks, it has seeped to the surface. - See more at: http://thephaser.com/2015/07/criminal-banks-plan-to-end-world-financia...

Hillary Clinton Campaign Ropes Reporters Behind Line At Parade

Clinton marched in a Fourth of July parade in Gorham, New Hampshire, trailed by a band of supporters waving signs and separated by a long rope from the pack of journalists that followed.

"I'll tell you what — we need to get a Democratic president," Clinton told one woman along the parade route, who asked about the health care overhaul. "I'm going to not only defend it, I'm going to make it even better."

One man who carried a sign that read, "Benghazi" also followed the candidate. Alluding to her time representing New York in the Senate, he screamed repeatedly, "Carpetbagger!"

Another man on the route yelled, "What about Benghazi? What about the emails?"

Clinton smiled broadly, shaking hands and stopping for quick photos. At one point, she posed for a photo with two New Hampshire beauty pageant contestants, who playfully flexed their biceps.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF Hillary's team is doing this to prevent reporters from talking to her in the primaries, what will happen to First Amendment freedoms if she gets elected?

AS THE EUROZONE TEETERS, THE IMF DOES SOMETHING WEIRD

As Europe teeters on a precipice of its own making, some people are beginning to wonder whether the IMF might have somehow discovered it has a conscience. Strange as it may sound, rumors of the IMF’s do-gooding began spreading on Friday after the Fund published a damning report on the sustainability of Greece’s finances and the Troika’s woeful mismanagement of the country’s debt crisis.

Granted, the report was deeply critical of Syriza’s negotiation strategies and governance of Greece. But the report’s real victims were the IMF’s two Troika partners, the European Central Bank (ECB) and the European Commission, both of whom had fought to prevent its publication.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

At this moment (about 5 AM our time), the vote is considered too close to call, but will probably have a massive impact on the stock market tomorrow.

CIVIL ASSET FORFEITURE: GUILTY UNTIL PROVEN INNOCENT

?Imagine going back home one day to find an empty house and all your belongings gone; or even worse, imagine being in your house and having your door suddenly smashed open by law enforcement officers in masks and being told at gunpoint that your personal possessions are being taken away.

It might sound like a trailer for the latest action film, but this is what happened to Annette Shattuck, a mother of four and a registered marijuana caregiver in Michigan. As she recently testified to the Michigan House of Representatives, her house was raided in 2014 while her 56-year old mother was taking care of her children. Everything from food, electronics, and vehicles to birth certificates, cash, and social security, insurance and public assistance cards was taken and has yet to be returned. As if this weren’t enough, she was left penniless due to a $1 million hold on all her bank accounts and has been unable to access the adoption subsidy for her special-needs son.

MONSANTO INVESTS BILLIONS IN NEW CARCINOGENIC HERBICIDE TO REPLACE ROUNDUP

It was reported last week that Monsanto will be replacing their controversial herbicide RoundUp with another dangerous substance known as Dicamba.

In a statement released last month, the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) announced that glyphosate, the main ingredient in Monsanto’s herbicide “RoundUp”, is “probably carcinogenic.”

The report indicated studies that “sufficiently demonstrated” that this substance caused cancer in animals. According to multiple reports, Monsanto was well aware that this chemical caused cancer for decades yet still continued to sell it.

As we have been reporting over the past several months, glyphosate is now even banned in many areas as a result of these studies.

According to Reuters, Monsanto is now dumping more than a billion dollars into a production facility that will distribute dicamba, the new chemical that will likely be replacing glyphosate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, Monsanto is replacing one poisonous product with another; where is the product evolution and corporate responsibility in that?!?!

As the Eurozone Teeters, the IMF Does Something Weird

The IMF’s job is to bail out holders of sovereign bonds issued in a currency the issuer doesn’t control and can’t devalue (Mexico issuing bonds in dollars, Greece issuing bonds in euros). These bondholders are mostly banks. In a debt crisis, the IMF bails out these banks by buying their troubled bonds and then tightens the belts around the little guys so that the country can service the debt it now owes the IMF. What happened in Greece? The banks that used to hold Greek debt have sold most of it to the European institutions, and some of it to the IMF; they have been bailed out years ago. The IMF has done its insidious job. Now mostly taxpayers are on the hook. But the IMF doesn’t give a crap about taxpayers.

Will a Selfie at Auschwitz Make You Free?

“ Look at him,” I said under my breath to a friend, narrowing my eyes at the sight of this guy. “Is he serious? Someone should go confiscate that stick, now.”
Note: From you tube video on Auschwitz... Rabbi Glickman,I myself was gassed at Auschwitz by Mengele himself six... uhh... ty.... Yes! Sixty times! The trick is you must hyperventilate before they shut the door. It's incredible how long you can hold your breath if you do that! To this day I can still hold my breath six... uhhh... hours!

Crunch Time with Iran

I refer to a “nonexistent” program as the frequently cited intelligence suggesting that a weapon was being developed has turned out to be based on forgeries provided by the Israelis. Currently, both the CIA and Mossad agree that no such program exists though both Washington and Tel Aviv persist in suggesting that Iran might change its mind and therefore must not even be able to develop relevant technologies in the future.

What It Will Take to Fix America’s Crumbling Infrastructure

May 11-15 is national Infrastructure Week in the U.S., but don’t get out the party hats. It’s not a celebration. It’s more like a cry for help. Bridges are crumbling, buses are past their prime, roads badly need repair, airports look shabby, trains can’t reach high speeds, and traffic congestion plagues every city. How could an advanced country, once the model for the world’s most modern transportation innovations, slip so badly?
