Palestine and Free Speech: The University of Illinois’ Decision to Fire Prof. Steven Salaita on Behalf of the Israel Lobby

Steven Salaita is a renowned academic in the field of Native American Studies. That is why the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) hired him in 2013 as a tenured associate professor in the American Indian Studies Program. Salaita resigned from his previous position and had every reason to believe that he was on his way to Illinois. However he was terminated on August 1, 2014.

In the summer of 2014 Israel was in the midst of a murderous campaign in Gaza which killed more than 2,000 people, including 500 children. Steven Salaita is a Palestinian-American and like millions of people he vented anger and outrage as the horrific war crime continued. His posts on twitter garnered the attention of the administration and donors at the University of Illinois and he was fired before he even began working.

The program to erase the individual

The individual is now considered a) a criminal by definition, or b) a member of a group defined solely by ethnicity, color, religion, gender, or c) either in the 1% or the 99%.

But the individual is not considered to be himself/herself. Certainly not. Anything but.

In any of these countries, go back through the speeches of recent presidents and prime ministers and try to find a significant, positive, extensive mention of the individual. Good luck.

Memorandum of Law lays bare the hoax that is the Internal Revenue Code

Enjoying a monopoly as they do, today’s banks “loan” computer-keypad keystroke entries of digits, called “credit” (modern equivalent of the Bank of England’s hollow promissory notes), at no cost to themselves. As explained by the senior government banking official, then-Secretary of the Treasury Robert B. Anderson:

“[W]hen a bank makes a loan, it simply adds to the borrower’s deposit account in the bank by the amount of the loan. This money is not taken from anyone else’s deposit; it was not previously paid in to the bank by anyone. It’s new money, created by the bank for the use of the borrower.”[6]

Federal Agencies Fight for Warrantless Access to Emails

How would you feel if the government could access a trove of information about who you are, what you do, who your friends are, and what they do by collecting it from email and cellphone providers, search engines, social networking sites, and other websites every day? If you'd be outraged, hold on to that feeling.

US MILITARY USES IMF AND WORLD BANK TO LAUNDER 85% OF ITS BLACK BUDGET

Though transparency was a cause he championed when campaigning for the presidency, President Obama has largely avoided making certain defense costs known to the public. However, when it comes to military appropriations for government spy agencies, we know from Freedom of Information Act requests that the so-called “black budget” is an increasingly massive expenditure subsidized by American taxpayers. The CIA and and NSA alone garnered $52.6 billion in funding in 2013 while the Department of Defense black ops budget for secret military projects exceeds this number. It is estimated to be $58.7 billion for the fiscal year 2015.

The True Cause Of Greece’s Economic Failure——An Omnivorous State, Not Lazy Workers

In the course of the Greek crisis, animosities between creditor countries like Germany and Greece didn’t take long to surface. They were fired up in the tabloid press, which was quick to revive various stereotypes. In Greece, Germans soon found themselves compared to their Nazi predecessors, while German tabloids inter alia complained sotto voce about those allegedly “lazy Southerners”.

Fracking: new powers for ministers to bypass local councils

Local communities may be stripped of the chance to decide on fracking in their area, under sweeping new rules allowing ministers to bypass councils entirely.
Under controversial plans to encourage the faltering fracking industry, Greg Clark, the communities secretary, will now consider ‘calling in’ any planning application for shale gas exploration as soon as it is submitted to a local authority.

Mr Clark would then decide on the application instead of the council under the new powers to “fast-track” fracking, which come into effect on Thursday.

CIA TORTURE TACTICS REEMERGE IN NEW YORK PRISON

Over 60 inmates at New York’s Clinton Correctional Facility have complained of abuse by prison guards in the wake of the June escape of convicted killers David Sweat and Richard Matt. According to a New York Times report, they allege that the prison staff interrogated them by beating them, placing them in solitary confinement, and in at least one inmate’s case, throwing a bag over his head and threatening to waterboard him.

Justice Department opens civil rights probe into Seneca police shooting of teen

The Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division will investigate the shooting of Zachary Hammond, the Seneca teen shot last month while eating ice cream on a first date.

The department issued a statement Wednesday night saying that the FBI’s Columbia field office and U.S. Attorney would open a civil rights investigation, and that it would “run parallel to the state’s investigation.”

Video: Cop Repeatedly Smashes Student With Baton For ‘Refusing To Comply’

Athens-Clarke County police fired officer Jonathan Fraser, and arrested him, after body cam footage revealed he used excessive force for no good reason against 19-year-old University of Georgia student Michael Roquet.

The body cam footage shows that Roquet was drunk, but posed no threat to Fraser, nor did he resist arrest.

Fraser had claimed in his report that Roquet “struck [him] with his left elbow in [his] chest,” and then “hit [him] again with his elbow.] The cop claimed that he responded by “striking [the man with a baton] in the leg and upper body” and then handcuffed him.

The video shows, however, that Fraser struck the student nine times, including once in the head and twice in the back while he was on the ground.

The officer omitted the fact that he had hit Roquet in the head, then when investigators confronted him on it, Fraser “denied striking [him] in the head with the baton” and tried to “mislead investigators” regarding the incident.

Hillary Clinton Keeps Making Untrue Claims About Her Use of a Private Email Server

The most important thing to understand about the continuing scandal over Hillary Clinton’s exclusive use of a private email server while serving as the Secretary of State is that almost everything she has claimed about the matter has turned out to be not true.

After questions arose about the unusual arrangement, which was in violation of State Department rules requiring employees to use only official government email accounts for both security and records retention purposes, Clinton held a press conference in March to address the matter. During the conference, she claimed, among other things, that there was no classified information on the account.

"I did not email any classified material to anyone on my email. There is no classified material. I’m certainly well aware of the classification requirements and did not send classified material," she said.

The statement was clear and unequivocal. It was also not true.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Super-Rich Donors Turn Our Democracy into Their Plutocracy

Once upon a time in our Good Ol’ US-of-A, presidential contenders and their political parties had to raise the funds needed to make the race. How quaint.

But for the 2016 run, this quaint way of selecting our candidates is no longer the case, thanks to the Supreme Court’s malicious meddling in the democratic process in its reckless Citizens United decision. In that decision, the five members of the Corporate Cabal decreed that “non-candidate” campaigns can take unlimited sums of money directly from corporations. Therefore, a very few wealthy powers can pour money into these murky political operations and gain unwarranted plutocratic power over the election process.

And looking at the fundraising numbers, those wealthy powers have definitely taken charge of the electoral game. These very special interests, who have their own presidential agendas, now put up the vast majority of funds and run their own private campaigns to elect someone who will do their bidding.

From Currency Wars To Oil Wars - OPEC Ups Production To 3 Year Highs As Iran Output Surges

As China takes the currency wars to the next level, so OPEC, not to be outdone, rotates the oil war volume to 11. As Bloomberg reports, OPEC pumped the most crude last month in more than three years as Iran restored output to the highest level since international sanctions were strengthened in 2012. The response - as one would expect - is a plunge in crude prices, erasing all the ridiculous algo-driven gains of yesterday, pushing WTI back on the verge of a $42 handle.

ATF Denies Being an ‘Agency’ to Avoid FOIA Compliance Requirements

A legal response filed by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives claims a Freedom of Information Act-related complaint improperly targets them. “The ATF is not an ‘agency’ within the meaning of the F.O.I.A., 5 U.S.C. § 552 (f) (1), and is, therefore, not a proper party defendant,” the response claims . . .

The complaint, filed June 23 in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, seeks an order to compel the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to comply with a Freedom of Information Act request filed in March and ignored in violation of federal law. The FOIA sought copies of policies and rulings relied on in enforcement and determination actions.

FLASHBACK 1992 - U.S. Strategy Plan Calls for Insuring No Rivals DevelopA One-Superpower World

In a broad new policy statement that is in its final drafting phase, the Defense Department asserts that America’s political and military mission in the post-cold-war era will be to ensure that no rival superpower is allowed to emerge in Western Europe, Asia or the territories of the former Soviet Union.

A 46-page document that has been circulating at the highest levels of the Pentagon for weeks, and which Defense Secretary Dick Cheney expects to release later this month, states that part of the American mission will be “convincing potential competitors that they need not aspire to a greater role or pursue a more aggressive posture to protect their legitimate interests.”

The classified document makes the case for a world dominated by one superpower whose position can be perpetuated by constructive behavior and sufficient military might to deter any nation or group of nations from challenging American primacy.

Pentagon needs to rethink calling war journalists 'belligerents', says watchdog

An international press freedom group has called on US defense secretary Ash Carter to revise “dangerous” language of a new Pentagon manual that says journalists can become “unprivileged belligerents” akin to spies or saboteurs.

Reporters Without Borders (RWB) published an open letter to Carter on Tuesday in response to the Department of Defense’s first Law of War Manual, which has provoked outrage among journalists for saying war reporters may be held liable for “engaging in hostilities” or “spying, sabotage and similar acts behind enemy lines”.

“This terminology leaves too much room for interpretation, putting journalists in a dangerous position,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire wrote in the letter.

“Likening journalistic activity to spying is just the kind of ammunition certain repressive countries like Iran, Syria and China would seek out to support their practices of censorship and criminalization of journalists.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ash Carter had this phrase inserted deliberately to create a chilling effect on the language,nuance, and images used to describe activities in war zones, particularly if they do not reflect well on the actions of the American military.

I would like to respectfully remind Secretary Carter that purpose of real reporting is to tell the truth; not bend it to the "narrative" of this government.

However, unfortunately, the criminalization and censorship of American journalists is well and truly on the rise.

I understand that wars are the tools for amassing great wealth,for the military/industrial complex, and large financial institutions, which loan money at interest to governments pursuing wars. This is why I am so adamantly against war as a means of resolution of geopolitical disputes.

How The Obama Administration Is Helping Big Bank Felons

With the blessing of the White House and the Justice Department, the Department of Housing and Urban Development is attempting to sneak through a major policy change that would enable big banks convicted of felonies to continue lending through a federal mortgage program, according to federal records and government officials.

The housing agency wants to quietly delete a requirement for lenders to certify they haven’t been convicted of violating federal antitrust laws or committing other serious crimes. HUD proposed the move on May 15, without detailing the reasoning behind the change. It’s now considering public comment, with an eye towards finalizing the proposal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

ABSOFLIPPINGLUTELY UNBELIEVABLE, BUT PERFECTLY PREDICTABLE FROM THIS ADMINISTRATION.

The chains may well be invisible, but with legislation like that coming out of this White House, we know, absolutely, who owns this administration.

WATCH: British reporter in Ferguson finds whites openly carrying rifles and peaceful blacks being arrested

Kylie Morris of Channel 4 in Britain visited Ferguson on Tuesday and tried to explain to the British people why white “Oath Keepers” were allowed to openly carry firearms on the street while peaceful black protesters were arrested.

“The men, calling themselves Oath Keepers, only added to the already simmering tensions,” a Channel 4 anchor noted before tossing to Morris for a live report from Ferguson.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Does anyone out there with an IQ more expansive than that of a carrot, believe for a millisecond that this treatment is random or accidental?!?

This is obviously a deliberate attempt to exacerbate racial tensions until they spill over into riots.

And why?!?

To cause enough of these nationally so that President Obama has his excuse to suspend the Constitution and Bill of Rights and impose martial law.

And to the people of Ferguson (and across the country) who have legitimate grievances, stay strong, stay peaceful, and stay united. May all the pastors, church fathers, rabbis and imams in your community walk with you, peacefully, and in prayer.

Please remember what Gandhi and Dr. Martin Luther King were able to do with peaceful protest, and let that be your inspiration.

The Putsch Pirates of The Potomac – Part One

That the U.S. inspired Ukrainian coup in 2014 was a reckless attempt to reignite the Cold War is clear to those who eschew the mainstream media for insights into the geopolitical realm.

But as we report in this first instalment of a ‘two-parter’, with the blowback building on numerous fronts and this time bordering on the existentially dangerous, by meddling in the affairs of other countries the U.S. may have finally bitten off more than it’s capable of chowing down…

After Ferguson Unrest, St. Louis Police Bought Stink Weapons to Launch at Protesters

Another year, another series of violent protests in the city of Ferguson, just outside St. Louis, Missouri. But this time, the law-enforcement response may take a particularly fetid turn. Local police are armed with Skunk, a controversial chemical “malodorant” — or more plainly, an unbelievably foul-smelling liquid that can be fired at protesters to make them disperse, or mark them for later arrest.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Is it just me, or does anyone else out there believe that such incidents are being manipulated to create race riots in this country, as a prelude to the suspension of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and the imposition of martial law in this country?!?

Logic suggests that rather than buying stink bombs to use against protesters, the Ferguson police department needs to be talking with the community about how to improve relations between police and the community. It has been done, and can be done; so why is this not happening in Ferguson?!?

We have a President who would love nothing better than invoke legislation through executive order only, and not be bothered with any Congressional debate.

Also, the "presumptive dynastic heiress" to the Democratic party's "coronation" as presidential candidate is stumbling worse than a rhinoceros in high heels, attempting to descend a staircase.

Wouldn't it be just wonderful for this Administration if somehow, for reasons of alleged "national security"the President could have the 2016 elections postponed until collective ADHD had settled on the masses of voters, and they would not remember how and why this woman is in big trouble for the 2016 election?!?

And people with real grievances out there; please do not get sucked into protests which may well turn violent. Remember; the greasy kid advocating the throwing of Molotov cocktails into various federal, or state, buildings, is probably an alphabet-soup agency agent/provocateur.

FORMER MERCK REP SAYS MANDATORY VACCINATION IS FOR PROFIT AND NOT PUBLIC HEALTH

Brandy Vaughan is a former sales rep for Merck & Co. – a vaccine maker – and she details how vaccine companies are using vaccines as a vehicle for massive profit and not public health. Brandy researched the safety of vaccines and found that not only do vaccines contain known toxins that can cause neurological damage, but that vaccine makers do not create the same safety studies for vaccines as they do for other drugs. This lack of true safety research of vaccines combined with the known adverse reactions to vaccination has helped Brandy to decide to never vaccinate her own child. Brandy says giving children a vaccine is like playing Russian roulette with our children and that mandatory vaccination is simply a way for vaccine makers to profit off of our children. Don’t be fooled: we do not need mandatory vaccination.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

States mandating vaccinations are going to see a huge brain drain from people who believe they have not only the intellectual ability, but also the right as parents, to decide what their children need in terms of any vaccinations whatsoever.

Australia, Canada, England, USA...medical dictatorship

Behind every national health insurance plan lurks the intention to control patients and make them take tests, ingest drugs, and submit to injections, from cradle to grave.

It all begins as a "humanitarian" gesture. "We believe every person has the right to healthcare." Once the national insurance plan is in place, the build-up begins:

"We know what's best for you. Therefore, you must obey."

The turn of the screw.

The State and their Pharma partners have no interest in examining evidence that the drugs and vaccines are toxic, despite the widespread availability of such evidence.

The State is essentially saying: "Look, we're paying for your healthcare (through taxes, but we aren't going to discuss that). We're giving you a gift. So you must comply with the conditions of the gift. We're giving you life itself. How can you refuse our orders?"

Lawsuit may reveal ‘no-fly’ tactics

A court challenge over the difficult process for airline passengers to remove their names from the U.S. government’s list of suspected terrorists banned from flying is taking an unexpected twist, now focusing on the mysterious ways federal agents add passenger names to the no-fly list in the first place.

The latest filing in a five-year federal case challenges the government’s undisclosed method of predicting who might commit a terrorist act in the future. The case could provide a glimpse into the government’s secret practices based on details about an airline passenger’s friendships, travels, financial transactions and more.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The fastest way to stop terrorism is to quit screwing around with other peoples' countries!

It’s 460 AD in Rome: This Won’t Be Fixed

Another American election cycle is upon us, and large numbers of people are lining up to pour their time and money into the sewer of politics, to be lost forever.

This system will not be fixed. Period. This is Rome in 460 AD. The rulers, as in Rome, are liars, mad, or drunk (these days, drugged)… or all three.

The “fall of Rome,” of course, was far more complex than we learned in school, but through all the many years of its decline, Rome was full of well-meaning people trying to reform and save it. And by the way, among the people who tried the hardest to keep the Roman game going were the Goths. They tried hard to keep Rome operational… and they failed too.

Let me be clear on this: Once ruling hierarchies get beyond a certain point, they cannot be reformed. And I am sure that the modern West is beyond that point.

21 Most Intriguing Quotes On The Federal Reserve

During the Ron Paul 2008 Presidential campaign the privately owned Federal Reserve banking system (which some refer to as a banking cartel) became a part of the national dialogue. Ron Paul’s Audit the Fed bill, which would reveal important information regarding the banks activities to the American people, has been voted on by every session of congress since and has passed every vote. This session, it looks like the bill will finally reach the Senate floor, and if it passes there, it moves on to the Presidents desk.

While the Federal Reserve has only recently been acknowledged by the American public as an important issue, a lot of very well known and highly regarded people have been talking about the Federal Reserve, or central banking in general, for a very long time.

Here is a collection of some of the quotes we found to be most revealing, and therefore most interesting, in terms of understanding the true nature of the Federal Reserve:

Don’t Be Fooled by the Political Game: The Illusion of Freedom in America

Being a citizen in the American corporate state is much like playing against a stacked deck: you’re always going to lose.

The game is rigged, and “we the people” keep getting dealt the same losing hand. Even so, most stay in the game, against all odds, trusting that their luck will change.

The problem, of course, is that luck will not save us. As I make clear in my book, Battlefield America: The War on the American People, the people dealing the cards—the politicians, the corporations, the judges, the prosecutors, the police, the bureaucrats, the military, the media, etc.—have only one prevailing concern, and that is to maintain their power and control over the citizenry, while milking us of our money and possessions.

First victim of Spain’s 'gag law' fined for criticising 'lazy' police

The first known individual to fall foul of Spain’s controversial new “gag law” has spoken out against what he sees as the repression of free speech after he received a fine for describing his local police force as "slackers" on Facebook.

Eduardo Díaz, a 27-year-old salesman from Tenerife, told the newspaper El Mundo that the comment he posted on his mayor’s Facebook page about the decision to provide the local police force with a new and larger headquarters was “just a criticism, not an insult.

Smart Meters mandated by government spontaneously exploding, setting off fires in private homes

Governments, touting potential electricity savings, have mandated Smart Meters and manufacturers and installers have followed along, putting in these public safety hazards without getting permission from homeowners. In a way, the unaccountable governments are claiming they can infringe on people's property rights by not giving consent for attaching these faulty devices on individuals' property.

The largest perpetrators, BC Hydro, BCUC and PG&E, who are colluding with government to force Smart Meters on the population, will do everything they can to keep public in the dark about these dangerous new meters. Where is the public outcry? People don't even have a choice to keep their analog meter and opt out of dangerous rip off Smart Meters. People are basically being forced to put their own lives and property at increased risk!

snip: The Law of War Manual:

* Declares legitimate the use of nuclear weapons, stating, “There is no general prohibition in treaty or customary international law on the use of nuclear weapons.” Nor is the use of nuclear weapons considered “inherently disproportionate,” even if the target is a military force that does not possess nuclear weapons.

* Authorizes the use of incendiary weapons such as napalm, herbicides (such as Agent Orange in Vietnam), laser weapons and riot control agents (tear gas, pepper spray, etc.), as well as depleted uranium munitions.

* Authorizes cluster munitions, mines and booby-traps, noting that “the United States is not a Party to the Convention on Cluster Munitions.”

* Authorizes the use of exploding (hollow-point) bullets, stating that the United States government was not a party to the 1868 St. Petersburg declaration banning their use or the 1899 Declaration on Expanding Bullets.

The Business of War is the Cause of War

Who benefits from war?

Certainly not the people on the warring sides. People always suffer in war; their futures ruined and their lives destroyed. In fear, they look to their government to protect them, the very same government that is invested in war. War is a dirty business that profits off death and destruction while generating blood money for the profiteers. The people are told to look the other way, outside of their country – where the ‘enemy’ supposedly resides.

But what if the real enemy is inside the country, and wears expensive suits, not turbans? What if he speaks your language while living in luxury and sending his children to study at Princeton, Yale and Harvard? While your kids are sent off to fight in fraudulent wars for corporate interests masquerading as ‘patriotism’.

The 5 Most Spectacular On-The-Job F#@% Ups By The Police

One day in 1986, one "John Morgan" waltzed into San Luis, Colorado, and started handing out flyers offering cash for animal corpses. Mr. Morgan claimed he was a taxidermist offering good money to anyone willing to provide him with his morbid materials in less-than-legal ways. His payouts ranged from as little as $2.50 for a bear claw to as much as $300 for a bald eagle (that's like $650 in today's money, or countless Uncle Sam tears). As you can guess, Morgan was actually a federal agent named George Morrison, looking to root out poachers in the area.

Now, we should note that the San Luis Valley where he made his lucrative offer was the absolute dirt poorest area of Colorado and northern New Mexico, with nigh on a quarter of residents being unemployed and an average yearly income of only $7,600. Yeah, you can see where this is headed.

Last year, in response to an ACLU-sponsored lawsuit, U.S. District Judge Anna Brown ordered the federal government to create an appeals process for people placed on the "no fly" list that prevents travelers from boarding flights to, from, within, or across the United States. Last spring the Department of Homeland Security began telling travelers barred from flying whether they were on the list and, if so, informing them of their right to initiate a "redress inquiry." But it's hard to get off the list if you don't know why you were put there to begin with, and the government says it can't be specific because that would endanger national security.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have read the Constitution. The Executive Branch doesn't get special prerogatives to ignore the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. As for trust; if this government told me it was a sunny day I would feel morally obligated to get an umbrella!!

No-fly list uses 'predictive assessments' instead of hard evidence, US admits

The Obama administration’s no-fly lists and broader watchlisting system is based on predicting crimes rather than relying on records of demonstrated offenses, the government has been forced to admit in court.

In a little-noticed filing before an Oregon federal judge, the US Justice Department and the FBI conceded that stopping US and other citizens from travelling on airplanes is a matter of “predictive assessments about potential threats”, the government asserted in May.

“By its very nature, identifying individuals who ‘may be a threat to civil aviation or national security’ is a predictive judgment intended to prevent future acts of terrorism in an uncertain context,” Justice Department officials Benjamin C Mizer and Anthony J Coppolino told the court on 28 May.

John Key backs law changes for SIS

The law that controls the activities of the country's domestic intelligence agency will be changed to fix deficiencies, Prime Minister John Key says.

The Security Intelligence Service (SIS) and the Government Communications Security Bureau (GCSB) are currently being reviewed by Sir Michael Cullen and Dame Patsy Reddy.

The first regular review of the agencies, it will examine the legislative framework governing them, and consider how they are placed to protect New Zealand's interests and security.

Mr Key said he agreed with SIS director Rebecca Kitteridge's opinion that the legislation governing the agency needed to change.

"At the end of the day it's not fit for purpose in the modern world...what we are trying to do is get bipartisan support, so I hope that they [the review team] will be able to come up with some recommendations that Labour can support."

DC’s Absurd Choice: a Nuclear Deal or War on Iran

snip: We already know, because the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) inspectors have repeatedly inspected Iran’s nuclear energy programs and reactors and verified the fact, that no bomb-making work has been going on in Iran for years. Iran has no weapons-grade uranium 235 and no plutonium. Even the US intelligence services and Israel’s Mossad leaders past and present have said that Iran has no nuclear weapons program underway.

What If Bibi Wins?

snip: Since this diplomatic agreement is obviously good news for the world, the UN Security Council has unanimously approved it and only one of the UN’s 193 member states, Israel, is currently opposed to it. The choice before members of Congress is thus a clear and simple one: Do they owe their primary allegiance and loyalty to the United States of America or to Israel? [...] All the signs suggest that, if Obama “wins”, even by a hair’s breadth, he will immediately seek to “compensate” Israel for his unprecedented act of disobedience though a significant increase in the amount of America’s annual tribute payment to Israel, through even deeper military largesse and cooperation and through continuing American diplomatic and political support at the United Nations and elsewere.

Don’t Be Fooled by the Political Game: The Illusion of Freedom in America

snip: “We the people” now belong to a permanent underclass in America. It doesn’t matter what you call us—chattel, slaves, worker bees, drones, it’s all the same—what matters is that we are expected to march in lockstep with and submit to the will of the state in all matters, public and private. Through our complicity in matters large and small, we have allowed an out-of-control corporate-state apparatus to take over every element of American society.

Don't Be Fooled By The Political Game: The Illusion Of Freedom In America

Being a citizen in the American corporate state is much like playing against a stacked deck: you’re always going to lose. The game is rigged, and “we the people” keep getting dealt the same losing hand. Even so, most stay in the game, against all odds, trusting that their luck will change.

President Bernie Sanders

Stuck in a perpetual post-9/11 milieu of uncontested false flag terror: the never ending war on terror only benefiting Israel; impoverished by an economic collapse engineered by an unprosecuted banking cabal, homeless, penniless, jobless; imprisoned in a high-tech DHS police state, spied upon by space-based and weaponized drones; living in an open air toxic waste pit: vaccinated, chem-trailed, fracked and Fukushima irradiated Americans will receive Bernie Sanders as their savior. But, Sanders, the good Kibbutz'er, Zionist will only take the continuity of government tools already made available; open up the FEMA camps in preparation of the "final solution" for millions of Americans.

Phony Israeli Crackdown on Violent Settler Zealots

snip: Israeli journalist Nahum Barnea took issue with his comments saying:

“This criminal behavior must be rooted out, and everyone knows where the roots are: in the incitement of the settler rabbis, in the Israeli governments that over and over again approved the settlers’ illegal acts, in the leniency of the judges and in the powerlessness of the Shin Bet, the army and the police.”

Israeli law enforcement agencies have plenty of power. They don’t use it against violent settlers. They target innocent Palestinians repressively - for political and racist reasons, not for criminality.

Ultranationalist infrastructure minister Uzi Landau supports extremist settlers. He calls Palestinians critical of their radicalism “anti-Semites…seek(ing) to undermine our right to exist here.” He claims violent elements are few in number - ignoring near daily incidents.

U.S. Marshals Raid Wrong Apartment, Force Mother and Children to Stand Outside Naked at Gunpoint

A Washington, D.C. woman is traumatized after U.S. Marshals mistakenly raided her apartment in the early AM hours this past Thursday morning.

California to throw adults in JAIL if they refuse government-mandated vaccines

If passed, SB 792 would represent the first adult vaccine mandate in the U.S. that disallows exemptions for personal reasons, and that threatens criminal penalties for those who fail or refuse to comply. Here's how Vaccine Impact describes SB 792:

SB 792, would eliminate an adult's right to exempt themselves from one, some, or all vaccines, a risk-laden medical procedure.

This bill would make California the first state to require mandated vaccinations for all childcare workers, including all private and public school early childhood education programs (Headstart, Private preK and preschools), family daycares, and daycare centers.

Police Murder and Class Rule in America: 16 More Lives Claimed over the Past Week

snip: There have been so many unarmed people killed by police in recent months that it is impossible to list them all. It is one year since 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot dead by officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri. Since then, 1,144 people have been killed by the police, or more than three per day. By way of comparison, fewer than 10 people are killed by police each year in Germany, and less than three in Great Britain.

The political establishment, led by the Obama administration, has responded to growing popular opposition to police brutality with empty gestures of concern, while helping shield the vast majority of killer cops from prosecution and seeing to it that the killing machine continues.

Rare legislative subpoena at center of political fight over jail death video

A rare legislative demand for evidence was issued by a Senate committee seeking video related to the death of a prisoner, but was rescinded by Senate President Kevin Meyer -- who said he thought better of the subpoena after first approving it.

The evidence was sought by Anchorage Republican Sen. Lesil McGuire, the chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee, from an attorney in her husband’s law firm who represented the prisoner’s family in a wrongful death lawsuit against the state.

McGuire said she believes the judiciary committee needs to see the video, which reportedly shows the last days of Davon Mosley’s life as recorded from a solitary confinement cell at the Anchorage Jail.

Judicial Watch: State Dept. Demands Clinton Aides Return Copies of Federal Records

The State Department has turned over to Judicial Watch the letters asking for the government records in possession of Hillary Clinton, Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills per a court order issued on July 31 and included the responses of the representatives to the request, according to Judicial Watch.

The letters show that, on July 31, the State Department, for the first time, demanded that Mills and Abedin “return all copies of potential federal records in your possession.” The State Department did not provide correspondence demanding Mrs. Clinton return all copies of potential federal records. Despite the court’s July 31 order for immediate disclosure, the State Department and its Justice Department attorneys took six days to disclose the 13 letters, which total 19 pages.

Top Hillary aide Cheryl Mills: I’ve been told to destroy my e-mails

Now this can’t be, can it? A Clinton aide blatantly destroying evidence in a criminal investigation? That would never happen.

OK, I’ll wait for you to stop laughing. This is the level of absurdity we’ve reached in the Hillary e-mail boondoggle, except that this doesn’t even really quite cover it. Because not only is Cheryl Mills destroying e-mails she’s supposed to be handing over, but the federal judge who issued the order is now sadly reduced to pleading with the Obama Administration to please ask her not to. How do you think that’s going to go?

Don’t Worry Warring Nations: The Bankers Have Our Backs

The erasure of national sovereignty leads, not to Shangri-La as some would have us believe, but to a supranational consolidated ‘sovereignty’ presided over by banking interests, which is no sovereignty at all. On the contrary, it’s the Town Hall of the Panopticon. Greece is not some idiot uncle who simply needs a loan to get back in the fold. That’s a tragic misread. Greece is the canary in our mine-shaft, loss-leader on the road to global debt servitude. As goes Greece so too will go the world in due course. Others wait in the wings: Puerto Rico, Italy, Portugal, the US. From the back of the cave, distant miners are easily mistaken for canaries.

Strict blasphemy laws enacted by stealth, group claims (NZ)

New Zealand has imposed some of the world's strictest blasphemy laws by stealth, a Humanist group says.

The new Harmful Digital Communications Act, intended to stop cyber-bullying, could have the effect of landing a person in jail for two years for committing blasphemy, the New Zealand Humanist Society said this week.

This aspect of the new law was an affront to four in ten Kiwis who weren't adherents of any religion, the group said.

"This legislation not only flies in the face of human rights, but the introduction of yet another law that gives special privileges to religions is unfair, unpopular and unrepresentative of our society, where over 40 per cent of New Zealanders identify as not religious, making this our country's largest single belief group," said Mark Honeychurch, the Society's president.

Cop Draws Gun On Resident For Filming Police From His Own Driveway

A Northern California cop was recorded after pulling a gun on a man for filming the police from his own property. A Rohnert Park officer brandished his gun in order to intimidate the resident into shutting off his camera. This brandishing is itself a crime, as well as felonious aggravated menacing. If the officer was actually charged for the crimes he commits, conviction in this case would make it federally illegal for him to own a firearm.

DMCA takedown laser brings down Vimeo videos with “Pixels” in title

The Internet didn't really need another reason to hate July's critically panned Columbia Pictures film Pixels, but it got one in the form of a sketchy DMCA takedown. The request comes from a copyright troll, and it's directed at a number of videos hosted on Vimeo.

TorrentFreak got the scoop on Saturday by discovering a successful takedown request filed by Entura International, an "anti-piracy" organization acting on Columbia Pictures' behalf. Entura targeted films that had nothing to do with the Adam Sandler film, with the exception of having the word "Pixels" in their titles.

The legacy of President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an’s first year in office has come under immense criticism.

Texas Town Retains Confederate Monument Despite Civil Rights Activist's 16 Years of Protest

Hudspeth has petitioned the Denton County Commissioner's Court for more than a decade to either have the monument removed and placed in a Confederate museum, or to have the statue restored and its alleged formerly "whites only" drinking fountains made functional once more so that, as he says, "everyone can take a drink."

But Hudspeth's struggle to bring down Denton's 1918 Confederate monument is only one of the battles over such monuments heating up in the state of Texas and across the South.

Participants at Conservative events must agree to gag order

Members of the public who attend Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s campaign events are being required to agree to a gag order before they can walk through the door, iPolitics has learned.

While attendance is by invitation only, and attendees are vetted by the Conservative Party before receiving a ticket, those who want to attend a campaign event in person are also being asked to agree to a number of conditions including not to transmit any description of the event or any images from it.

“Holder (of the confirmation of registration) is prohibited from transmitting or aiding in transmitting any description, account, picture or reproduction of the Event,” according to information contained on the invitation website for an event Harper is planning in Brampton East on Monday.

A similar warning appears in connection with an event Harper appeared at in the Montreal riding of Mont Royal as he kicked off his campaign last Sunday.

Spying on Americans: Senate Intelligence Authorization Act, Would Allow Arrest of Journalists, Anti-war Activists, Academics and Students

Freedom in America is being systematically destroyed: one police state law at a time – with most people ignorant and/or indifferent about what happening.

Washington’s criminal class is bipartisan – in lockstep against government representing everyone equitably and fairly, serving privileged interests only.

S. Res. 1705: Intelligence Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2016 compromises free expression and privacy rights already gravely eroded.

If enacted, Section 603 will require online companies to inform Washington of any “actual knowledge” of “facts and circumstances” related to undefined “terrorist activity” – meaning warrantless searches and seizures of personal electronic content will be authorized, potentially subjecting countless numbers of innocent people to unjustifiable scrutiny.

Vaccine industry social influence document reveals attempted bribery of 'key social influencers' such as Disney / Marvel, ESPN, Oprah and a CNN reporter

The document is entitled Roadmap for Action to Reach the Healthy People 2020 Goals for Adult Vaccination. It is dated November, 2013, meaning that almost everything mentioned here has already been implemented as we've seen with the Disneyland measles false flag outbreak, the push for SB 277 in California and the insertion of pro-vaccine propaganda into Netflix programs.

The document openly admits that the vaccine industry pays people to exert social influence calling for increased sales of lucrative vaccines.

Vaccine industry specifically names ESPN, Disney, Oprah Winfrey, Sanjay Gupta and others

The document calls for the vaccine industry to, "Identify influential spokespersons from multiple sectors (e.g., business, sports, music) to reach each identified target population."

"We Have A Civil War": Inside Turkey's Descent Into Political, Social, And Economic Chaos

Deflecting criticism surrounding Ankara’s anti-terror air campaign, Turkey’s foreign minister Mevlut Cavusoglu last week told state television that strikes against ISIS targets would pick up once the US had its resources in place at Incirlik which will supposedly serve as a hub for a new "comprehensive battle." Turkey has had a difficult time explaining why, after obtaining NATO support for a new offensive campaign to root out "terrorists", its efforts have concentrated almost solely on the PKK and not on ISIS. As we’ve discussed in great detail (here, here, and here), and as the entire world is now acutely aware, Ankara’s newfound zeal for eradicating ISIS is nothing more than a cover for its efforts to undermine support for the PKK ahead of snap elections where President Tayyip Erdogan hopes to win back AKP’s absolute majority in parliament which it lost last month for the first time in 12 years.

Unconstitutional Senate Intelligence Authorization Act

snip: Vague language makes independent journalists, political, anti-war, and social justice activists, academics and students doing legitimate research, as well as others vulnerable to being called suspected terrorists.

The possibility could encourage self-censorship. Service providers may over-report to show compliance with the law. Online users could be flagged for using suspect words or phrases.

One definition of terrorist activity can be another’s way of describing freedom fighting. Legitimate government criticism could be misinterpreted and misused.

Anyone ideologically opposed to US policies could become vulnerable to arrest, prosecution, conviction and imprisonment for expressing their views online. Police states operate this way.

there will never again be enough “good jobs” to go around

snip: These days, to get rich, one needs to take government as a partner. If one does not, regulation and legislation are likely to destroy your business. At this point, many of us (myself included) have had businesses – good businesses that benefited everyone involved – crushed by legislation.

To avoid being crushed these days, you have to be smarter and fleeter of foot than everyone else. Not many of us can survive in that situation, and as regulations continue to rise, even that number grows smaller and smaller.

For the generation before of mine, independent success required ambition, but it was reachable. For my generation, only those of us blessed with unusual talent had a chance at controlling our economic destinies. For the young generation of today, it’s nearly impossible. These days, if you want to jump ahead, you need to be part of something big… and you need to start as a sycophant.
