Justice Department declined to prosecute Huma Abedin on $10k embezzlement

The State Department’s Inspector General has uncovered damning evidence in a criminal probe of Huma Abedin and turned it over to the Justice Department, which declined to prosecute Hillary Clinton’s right hand woman. Jay Soloman reports in the Washington Times:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That same Department of (In)Justice has declared that Hillary complied with the law in her email deletions; a statement that is unsupportable given that the State Department does not know what was actually deleted.

“Fed Risks Triggering Panic and Turmoil”: World Bank Warns Against Raising Rates

Could things crumble and crash over a simple rate hike?

Many experts say they could, and well, things aren’t so simple after all.

The US Federal Reserve risks triggering “panic and turmoil” in emerging markets if it opts to raise rates at its September meeting and should hold fire until the global economy is on a surer footing, the World Bank’s chief economist has warned.

Microsoft case: DoJ says it can demand every email from any US-based provider

The United States government has the right to demand the emails of anyone in the world from any email provider headquartered within US borders, Department of Justice (DoJ) lawyers told a federal appeals court on Wednesday.

The case being heard in the second circuit court of appeals is between the US and Microsoft and concerns a search warrant that the government argues should compel Microsoft to retrieve emails held on a Hotmail server in Ireland.

Microsoft contends that the DoJ has exceeded its authority with potentially dangerous consequences. Organizations including Apple, the government of Ireland, Fox News, NPR and the Guardian have filed amicus briefs with the court, arguing the case could set a precedent for governments around the world to seize information held in the cloud. Judges have ruled against the tech company twice.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government has just declared the right to privacy, guaranteed under the 4th Amendment, to no longer exist.

Hillary Clinton Promises A More Muscular Foreign Policy As President

In the lead-up to the 2008 presidential election, Hillary Clinton’s vote to authorize the Iraq War six years before haunted her on the campaign trail. It put her in stark contrast with then-Senator Barack Obama, who touted his foresight in opposing the ill-fated war. But if Clinton was scarred by the perception that her foreign policy agenda is too hawkish for the Democratic Party, she showed no signs of it Wednesday morning in a speech detailing her plan to counter Iran after the implementation of the nuclear deal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, not enough people have been displaced, maimed for life, or died in the US government's crushing push for regime change in countries it does not like, and whose assets the US wants to expropriate, to satiate the bloodlust of the former Secretary of State.

And regarding Israel's security, I would like to politely remind Secretary Clinton that Israel is a fully-armed nuclear nation, with one of the finest military in the world, courtesy of American tax dollars.

Iran's leadership may be many things, but one thing that they are not is stupid.

They understand that any attack against Israel would bring the full deathblow counter strike by Israel and the US against it, turning the country of Iran into a molten sea of glass.

Forgive me, but I do not believe that this is the outcome the Iranian leadership wants for their families, or for the Iranian people.

And lastly, I would like to mention to Secretary Clinton that Americans are war-weary, and war-sceptical. They have seen the debacles that have been Libya (culminating in Benghazi); Afghanistan; Iraq; Somalia; Syria; and Yemen.

They want no more of this, thank you very much; they have been lied into quite enough military misadventures, and will not tolerate being lied into more.

OF course, it is always easy to shill for more wars and more interventions, when you know for a moral certainty, that it will never be your kid out on that battlefield, being maimed or killed, ultimately for private corporate profit.

And people who benefit financially from these wars have absolutely no moral qualms about trying to "sell" them to create more profit for themselves.

I would observe that they have the morals of a trout; but that would be insulting all trout, everywhere!!

Houston cops shoot unarmed black patient in hospital — and then charge him with assault

Alan Pean is a 26-year-old biology student with no criminal record or history of violence. But on August 27th, he was shot in the chest by an off-duty Houston police officer working as a security guard at the St. Joseph Medical Center. The police are claiming that Alan became combative and that they followed standard operating procedure.

But the family and medical professionals are disturbed by the handling of Alan’s case and what looks like a failure on many levels.

Alan had driven himself to the hospital the night of August 26, during an acute mental health crisis.When he got there, he crashed his car and was treated for those injuries.

Alan’s father, himself a physician, begged the hospital to get his son a psychiatric evaluation given that Alan had suffered a similar episode in 2009. But the hospital decided he was ready to be discharged, clearing him a mere minutes before the shooting.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are multiple failures in the handling of this case, both from a standpoint of the hospital, and the police.

The hospital was negligent in releasing this young man, when they knew he had had a previous mental health crisis, and should have held him for observation. The police should have known also about the previous mental health crisis, but were not told.

You do not respond to a psychiatric crisis with a gun; kindness, appropriate medication, and a sense that someone is looking after you appropriately, when you cannot look out for yourself, can do wonders.

#FukYoFlag Movement Calls For Black Lives Matter Violence On 9/11

Goldman Sachs Beats Another Fraud Rap: Can the Public Ever Get Justice in New York Courts?

Plaintiffs in the case were investors in Hudson Mezzanine Funding 2006-1 and 2006-2, synthetic bets on toxic mortgages which Goldman sold to investors while making multi-billion-dollar bets for its own firm that the deals would fail.

In writing his decision to dismiss the claims by plaintiffs, the Judge actually acknowledged that employees of Goldman Sachs had called what they were selling to their customers “crap” and “junk” in internal emails that were introduced into evidence. Judge Marrero further conceded that Goldman Sachs was aware of deteriorating fundamentals in the subprime mortgage market and needed to “flip” its risk onto the shoulders of its customers. But none of this convinced the Federal Judge – a so-called steward of the public trust – that he had an obligation to let the case proceed to trial and allow citizen jurors make their own determinations in the matter.

US NOW HAS OVER 1,400 FOREIGN MILITARY BASES SPREAD OVER 120 COUNTRIES

In an interview about his new book detailing cables published by Wikileaks, Julian Assange makes the following key points:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As a 66 year old woman, I weep to see what this government has become; a rapacious nation, hell-bent on making sure as much destruction as humanly possible happens to the rest of the world to achieve national regimes to our liking, and making sure that the spoils of such wars fall into the hands of major corporations, which support the politicians, overtly and covertly.

And those people, desperately trapped by US-generated wars of aggression, who can never go home again?!? To this government, they have absolutely no humanity whatsoever, and are irrelevant; that is why they are labeled as "collateral damage", in order for those in power not to feel one shred of guilt because of what has been done to these people.

American corporations have become the voracious whores, and the US government, their indulgent madam, making sure that they get the lion's share of profits.

This is a government waging wars against its own citizens,at every level, in terms of the economy, health, surveillance, and eviscerating what little protections are still available through the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

And internationally, when the issues of democracy and human rights "get in the way of doing business" for the US, they are summarily dismissed; despots are supported, and torture is condoned.

Look at what is going on in Yemen and Bahrain, and try to tell me, with a straight face, that this is not so.

Were I in a position to be able to compose a long-form work right now, I am very certain that it would be titled as follows: The United States; a Requiem for a Country I used to know."

Nights of Terror Strike Turkey as Far Right Mobs Attack Opposition and Citizens

Turkey has been experiencing what seems to be a repeat of events from the many pogroms and national-lynching campaigns that the country has witnessed several times in the past century. Angry mobs took to streets under the leadership of AKP youth organizations, right after President Erdo?an said, “If a particular party [as I had wanted before the elections] had received 400 deputies in the parliament [out of 550], things would have been completely different,” – referring to the soldiers who were killed in clashes between Turkish Armed Forces and Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in the east of Turkey. The mobs, led by the leader of AKP Youth Movement and also a member of the parliament, attacked the Hurriyet Daily’s headquarters. The social media troll army and pro-government journalists described the events as the “democratic right to protest the corrupt media” and encouraged people to take to streets.

Why Central Banks Are Pressing Investors To Hold Gold

Financial repression has been a frequently discussed topic since our first publication. During that period, many of the measures we had warned about are now in place or events have already taken place. A good example is capital controls. In 2012, a discussion about the possibility of capital controls in a Western country seemed like a conspiracy theory. In the meantime, they became a reality in both Cyprus and Greece. Could a major Western country be next?

FLASHBACK - A GOVERNMENT THAT LIES

The most expensive purchase most Americans will ever make is their own government. Government costs the average American more than their home, more than their health care, more than their childrens' college education. Yet people who would spend a great deal of time kicking the tires before buying a new car spend disastrously little time checking out the government that sucks so much money out of them over their lifetimes.

Right now, looking under the hood of that expensive item called "government", we see a unified group of men and women who lied to send your children off to a war of conquest. Across this land there are thousands of families waking up to the knowledge that their sons and daughters were crippled and killed in Iraq for reasons other than what they were told.

Santa Clara County jail inmate died screaming, ‘I’m sorry!’

A mentally ill Santa Clara County inmate was heard screaming, “I’m sorry” and “Stop,” as he was allegedly beaten by correctional officers hours before he was found dead, authorities said Tuesday as they charged the jailers with murder.

Court documents described a brutal beating by three correctional officers at the Main Jail in San Jose that culminated in the death of 31-year-old Michael Tyree, who was found naked and covered in feces and vomit in his cell Aug. 27, hours after the beating was meted out when he initially refused to take his medication, prosecutors said.

The Parable of the Man Wearing a Suit, Covered In Blood, Holding a Bloody Knife, Before the Body of the Victim, Who is Declared Innocent of the Crime, And the Truth about the Official 911 Narrative

A man, dressed neatly in a suit and tie, is found splattered with blood from head to toe holding a bloody knife before the body of a stabbing victim. The man calmly explains that he is not the murderer and he only just discovered the body. In a calm voice he says that he's a trusted member of the Government and that terrorists were responsible.

During the investigation it is discovered that the only footprints (bloody ones) were found to be from the man in the suit. His fingerprints were on the knife and no others. Regardless of these facts other men in suits focus the investigation on an elaborate tale that centres on the activities of a group of known terrorists.

A Pyrrhic Victory in Mexico: Still No Justice for the Disappeared of Ayotzninapa

The GIEI for Ayotzinapa, an interdisciplinary group of independent experts convened by the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, has just delivered its final report in Mexico City on Sunday September 6, 2015. At the end of September 2014, 43 trainee teachers from Ayotzinapa were forcibly disappeared, probably by state agents belonging to various layers of Mexico’s abusive military, security and police forces. The IACHR established the GIEI to analyze how the state investigated those disappearances. The Mexican government paid for the GIEI experts to do their work. The IACHR established the GIEI, it said, to help protect and promote human rights in the Americas.

Now leading pundits are admitting that these “candidates” are really just “avatars for dissatisfaction,” a.k.a. little more than the opening acts to a very long dog and pony show called the presidential elections.

One arrested during TPPA protest at John Key's office

A member of a group opposed to the Trans-Pacific Partnership has been arrested for assault after staging a protest at Prime Minister John Key's electorate office in Kumeu this morning.

Members of the group "Show Us Ya Text" occupied the PM's office and refused to leave until details of the agreement were released.

Inspector Mark Fergus of the Rodney Police said that three of the protestors were verbally trespassed and removed from the building earlier today and one woman was arrested for assault.

The Herald contacted the electoral office this morning but was referred to John Key's Parliamentary office staff,

A spokesperson for the Prime Minister said he was disappointed in the action taken by protesters at his electoral office today.

Kerry’s Double Assisted Suicide: Russia Oil Gains, America Loses from Sanctions

Secretary John Kerry and friends have managed what can only be called a brilliant double suicide. The September 2014 deal with Saudi Arabia to crash oil prices, then at $103 a barrel for US WTI grade crude oil, not only has managed to bring the US shale oil industry—Washington’s new strategic card allowing the US to essentially abandon her Saudi and Gulf Arab allies–to the brink of bankruptcy and collapse. The oil price collapse, ironically, also gave Russian oil beautiful profits and forced the companies to turn east for far larger and more lucrative new markets.

Spain Defense Minister Warns Army May Intervene Unless "Catalonia Obeys The Rules"

With Spain's Catalan region on the verge of electing pro-independence parties and seeking autonomy from central rule, the government (clearly worried) has ramped up the rhetoric on what consequences lie ahead. In a rather stunning outburst for a supposed democracy, CNA reports, the Spanish Defence Minister, Pedro Morenés, assured that the army won’t act in Catalonia as long as "everybody fulfills their duty." The Catalan minister for the presidency exclaimed Morenes statement was "out of this world," and could only be made by "someone who is afraid of democracy." The army will "enforce the Constitution," Morenes concludes, unless "members strictly obey the rules." As one pro-independence minister opined, "threatening and trying to intimidate means that you are only left with stupidity."

Rochester General Hospital in New York tells parents that kidnapping is part of its policy to enforce "mandatory" medical treatments

Be careful where you give birth. The hospital you choose could try to kidnap your child if you fail to abide by its rules for "mandatory" medical treatment. Rochester General Hospital (RGH) in New York appears to be one such hospital. If you refuse to inject your baby with a vitamin K vaccine or give him the antibiotic erythromycin, hospital workers could hold him there indefinitely against your will.

An audio recording of a voicemail left by a hospital worker for a patient reveals that RGH's policy is to basically assume "medical custody" in cases where parents refuse to allow administration of these two particular drugs to their newborns. An unnamed RGH employee, who opted to remain anonymous for privacy and protection purposes, stated the following in a voicemail response to a patient's inquiry about the hospital's newborn release policy.

Heads Up: It’s a Trap

First, there are repeated reports that the federal budget will not be finalized by the September 30 deadline. This means that both the new fiscal budget and a needed increase in the debt limit will be in flux when the Pope addresses a joint session of Congress on September 24. The next day he will address the UN General Assembly, followed by a mass on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia on Sunday, September 27.

On Monday, September 28, with the U.S federal budget still presumably in play, the following world leaders will address the UN General Assembly:

Obama
Xi Jinping
Putin
Hollande
Rouhani
others

There are rumors that Hollande will propose a Palestinian state. What is not a rumor is the UN’s new Post-2015 Development Agenda. This is being referred to as Agenda 21 on steroids.

Craig Murray: I Can Reveal the Legal Advice on Drone Strikes, and How the Establishment Works

David Bethlehem had developed, in his work for Israel, an extremist doctrine of the right of States to use pre-emptive self-defence – a doctrine which would not be accepted by the vast majority of public international lawyers. He clinched his appointment by Blair as the FCO chief legal adviser by presenting a memorandum to the House of Commons Foreign Affairs Committee in 2004 outlining this doctrine, and thus de facto defending the attack on Iraq and the Bush/Blair doctrine.

A key sentence of David Bethlehem’s memorandum is this

“It must be right that states are able to act in self-defence in circumstances where there is evidence of further imminent attacks by terrorist groups, even if there is no specific evidence of where such an attack will take place or of the precise nature of the attack.”

There is a fundamental flaw in this argument. How can you be certain that an attack in “imminent”, if you are not certain where or what it is? Even if we can wildly imagine a scenario where the government know of an “imminent” attack, but not where or what it is, how could killing someone in Syria stop the attack in the UK? If a team were active, armed and in course of operation in the UK – which is needed for “imminent” – how would killing an individual in Syria prevent them from going through with it? It simply does not add up as a practical scenario.

“Silent Invasion”: The US and the Militarization of Latin America

However, recent years have borne witness to a growing independence and assertiveness from many nations in the region, owing in no small part to the rise of Hugo Chavez in Venezuela. Indeed, with Venezuela as the exemplar, and Chavez as the initiator of the process of regional integration and collective security, Latin America has grown increasingly independent of its imperial neighbor to the north.

And it is precisely this political, economic, and cultural independence that the U.S. has moved to counteract in the most effective way it can: militarily. Using pretexts ranging from the “War on Drugs” to humanitarian assistance, and the “War on Terror,” the U.S. seeks to regain its military foothold in the region, and thereby maintain and further its hegemony.

AMERICAN FALSE FLAGS THAT STARTED WARS

This is a tried-and-true method in the U.S. of getting wars started: Tell lies about some situation that can be construed as a threat to U.S. security (or in this case, Israel’s national security, which seems to be threatened by just about everything), get the populace riled up with jingoistic fervor, watch pompous politicians proclaim their great patriotism on the evening news, and then go bomb some country or other.

The U.S. again gets to flex its international muscle, the citizenry is, for some bizarre reason, proud of the destruction the country has caused, the weapons manufacturers spend all their time tallying their astronomical profits, and all is once again right in the twisted world of U.S. governance.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Lying to get this country into war is standard operating procedure from DC; this is why one cannot believe anything this government says, anymore, because its credibility no longer exists.

In the onslaught of the propagandized demonization of Iran, China, the Syrian leadership, and Russia, one has to be very careful, and check the facts for yourselves; the only thing you will get from the US government is yet another pack of lies to sell you yet another war.

And please remember; Charlie Rangel's bill to reinstate the draft is still sitting in the House Armed Services Committee, and has been for the last two years. This does not happen by accident.

And this time, this legislation will not be coming just for our young men, but also our young women.

Congressman Charles B. Rangel introduced legislation on Friday that would reintroduce the draft and would require all women to register for the Selective Service. These two bills aim to challenge the decisions that are made to send our troops into harm's way. Ten years ago on February 15, 2003, fifteen million people across 800 cities protested the invasion of Iraq, making it the largest antiwar rally in history. "Now that women can serve in combat they should register for the Selective Service alongside their male counterparts," said Rangel. "Reinstating the draft and requiring women to register for the Selective Service would compel the American public to have a stake in the wars we fight as a nation. We must question why and how we go to war, and who decides to send our men and women into harm's way."http://rangel.house.gov/press-release/rangel-introduce-legislation-reinstating-draft-and-requiring-women-register-selective

"GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH": THE LOSS OF OUR FREEDOMS IN THE WAKE OF 9/11

What began with the passage of the USA Patriot Act in October 2001 has snowballed into the eradication of every vital safeguard against government overreach, corruption and abuse. Since then, we have been terrorized, traumatized, and acclimated to life in the American Surveillance State.

The bogeyman’s names and faces change over time, but the end result remains the same: our unquestioning acquiescence to anything the government wants to do in exchange for the phantom promise of safety and security has transitioned us to life in a society where government agents routinely practice violence on the citizens while, in conjunction with the Corporate State, spying on the most intimate details of our personal lives.

Ironically, the 14th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks occurs just days before the 228th anniversary of the ratification of our Constitution. Yet while there is much to mourn about the loss of our freedoms in the years since 9/11, there is virtually nothing to celebrate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are a number of wars going on against the American people; economic, social, educational, and pseudo-military, in terms of how ordinary citizens, many of whom have done nothing wrong, are treated by this country's police, high on testosterone and adrenaline, and convinced that every single citizen in "the enemy".

And please remember; we have a president who believes that in spite of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, he has the power to order an extrajudicial assassination against Americans anywhere in the world. How long do you think drones in American skies will be armed to "take care of" people who have the nerve (and do it peacefully) to think differently than the current administration?

Unfortunately, under President Obama's watch, it may not take that long at all.

The best thing you can do right now is to protect those you care about deeply from what may well be an economic and societal collapse in this country. Have a plan, and use it. Make sure that everyone knows how to stay in touch, during a crisis; that you have reliable communication (two way radios are a good thing), and a plan to "bug out" if that is what circumstances dictate. Make sure you have adequate storable food, potable water, and extra medications for yourselves and your pets.

I wish I had a more upbeat scenario to share with all of our readers right now; unfortunately,however, in looking at the reality I am seeing, we are most probably looking at a major world war, or a major world-wide economic collapse.

‘Tis The Season For Selling War

snip: Using such reports (all, it must be said, originating from a lone Israeli publication), Secretary Kerry phoned Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov Saturday to express Washington’s “concerns about reports of an imminent enhanced Russian military buildup” in Syria. One wonders if Lavrov was permitted the opportunity to express his own concerns about the U.S. jets already cross-crossing Syrian skies, or the presence of U.S. boots already known to have been on the ground. Not that any of this would likely have gotten through to Kerry. The secretary, one will recall, is the same man so taken aback by Russia’s annexation of Crimea that he publicly shrieked, with no apparent shame, that invading foreign countries on trumped up pretexts is simply not something one does in the 21st century.

How Debian Is Trying to Shut Down the CIA and Make Software Trustworthy Again

In response to the Snowden revelation that the CIA compromised Apple developers' build process, thus enabling the government to insert backdoors at compile time without developers realizing, Debian, the world's largest free software project, has embarked on a campaign to to prevent just such attacks. Debian's solution? Reproducible builds.

In a talk at Chaos Communication Camp in Zehdenick, Germany, earlier this month (full text here), Debian developer Jérémy Bobbio, better known as Lunar, told the audience how the Linux-based operating system is working to bring reproducible builds to all of its more than 22,000 software packages.

Reproducible builds, as the name suggests, make it possible for others to reproduce the build process. "The idea is to get reasonable confidence that a given binary was indeed produced by the source," Lunar said. "We want anyone to be able to produce identical binaries from a given source."

Chief: Officers didn't know infant was in car until after shooting mother and boyfriend

The four police officers who shot and killed two people inside a vehicle during a gunfight in a convenience store parking lot didn't realize there was an infant in the back seat of the car until after the gunfire stopped, police said Tuesday.

Angelo Delano Perry, a 35-year-old Virginia Beach resident with an extensive criminal history, and 28-year-old postal carrier India Kager of College Park, Maryland, were shot to death Saturday night less than 15 seconds after officers approached the parked vehicle they were in. The couple's 4-month old son, Roman, was sitting in the rear of the vehicle in a car seat and escaped uninjured, said Virginia Beach Police Chief Jim Cervera.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh yes, someone planning a violent act always takes along a 4-month old baby!

US to 'Pedal Aggressive NATO Agenda' Even if Allies Drop Out

NATO gets inventive every time it needs to justify military operations abroad and shore up support from reluctant allies, Klaus Hartmann, the chairman at World Union of Freethinkers, told SNA Radio on Tuesday.

AMERICAN FALSE FLAGS THAT STARTED WARS

For generations, the U.S. has been successful in deceiving its citizens, and a good part of the world, that it is a beacon of freedom and peace. Yet this facade is crumbling and people are waking up to the truth, which could have major implications for the Iran deal.

Privatization is at the core of Fascism

Privatizations are increasingly fashionable, such as in Greece, Ukraine, the U.S., and UK — and privatizations are a central feature of fascism.

Christians warned to pull kids from public school

Imagine an America in which all children are educated according to biblical, Christian principles instead of modern, secular, liberal values.

Chaplain E. Ray Moore (Lt. Col. USAR Ret.), such a scenario is not just possible, but essential if Christians wish to reclaim the American culture.

“We take the position at the Exodus Mandate that the Scripture and sound theology teach that the education of children belongs to the family and the church or private associations, not government,” said Moore, the founder and president of Frontline Ministries, Inc. and director of the Exodus Mandate Project. “We don’t believe that government, even at the state level, has any role in K-12 education, and the Scriptures are clear and explicit on this. There’s no wiggle room.”

‘Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death’: The Loss of Our Freedoms in the Wake of 9/11

snip: We can pretend that the Constitution, which was written to hold the government accountable, is still our governing document. However, the reality we must come to terms with is that in the America we live in today, the government does whatever it wants, freedom be damned, and “we the people” are seen as little more than cattle to be branded and eventually led to the slaughterhouse.

Consider the state of our freedoms, and judge for yourself whether Osama Bin Laden was right when he warned that “freedom and human rights in America are doomed,” and that the “U.S. government will lead the American people in — and the West in general — into an unbearable hell and a choking life.”

HORRIFYING VIDEO SHOWS COPS TELL K9 “GOOD BOY” AS THEY LET HIM MAUL A HANDCUFFED MAN

A video uploaded to Facebook yesterday is garnering a massive amount of attention, for good reason. In a horrifying example of police brutality, the video shows multiple officers subduing an unarmed suspect. However, what takes place after the suspect is handcuffed can only be described as an unconscionable and completely unnecessary act of police torture.

A BENEFIT OR BIG BROTHER? NYC UNVEILS PILOT PROGRAM TO TRACK DRIVING HABITS

The Department of Transportation says it will help fix street problems. Others say its like Big Brother is watching you, CBS2’s Marcia Kramer reported Friday. It’s a tiny black box about the size of a pack of gum that is installed right under the steering wheel. It will allow city officials under a program called “Drive Smart” to collect and access data about how you drive — if you drive like a maniac, or if you’re Mr. or Mrs. Slow Poke.

Video of the Day – Three Former U.S. Treasury Secretaries and a Facebook Executive Laugh About Income Inequality

If there was ever a “let them eat cake” moment in modern American history, this is it.

Earlier this year, at 2015’s Milken Institute Global Conference, Facebook Chief Operating Officer, Sheryl Sandberg, was moderating a panel with three former U.S. Treasury Secretaries. The topic of income inequality was raised, and they all burst out laughing. The biggest uproar came from the man who orchestrated the 2008 banker bailouts, former Goldman Sachs CEO, Hank Paulson, as Sandberg enthusiastically claps her hands like a privileged, primped out Panem aristocrat. To the right of Hank is Clinton puppeteer Robert Rubin, and all the way to the left, Timmy Geithner.

In Major Escalation, Washington Demands Greece Blocks Its Airspace For Russian Flights To Syria

Moments ago, following ever louder hints - if still unconfirmed by the Kremlin - that Russian forces are either en route to Syria or already there (Russian soldier's VK post stating troops are in Syria, intercepted communication from a Russian An-124 military cargo plane en route to Latakia, Russian Roll-on/roll-off ship allegedly carrying military equipment to Syria), the US made a dramatic diplomatic escalation ahead of what is now assured to be the second major showdown between the US and Russia in Syria, over a Qatari gas pipeline no less, when according to Reuters, it asked Greece to deny Russia the use of its airspace for supply flights to Syria, a Greek official said on Monday, after Washington told Moscow it was deeply concerned by reports of a Russian military build up in Syria.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US is in a real corner of their own making. They send weapons and supplies to Al Qaeda and ISIS in Syria, then use the presence of Al Qaeda and ISIS as an excuse to bomb Syria, claiming they are targeting the eeeeeevil Al Qaeda and ISIS. So Russia ways, "We'll help" meaning Russia will help the Syrian government go after Al Qaeda and ISIS. The US cannot admit that Al Qaeda and ISIS are proxy armies working for the US, and since Syria's legitimate government wants Russia's help, the US has to resort to trying to blockade Russia behind Greece, Bulgaria, and so forth. All f this is a violation of international laws regarding freedom of the seas and skies.

Published on Aug 31, 2015

In the first part of a series, Brandon Martinez of Non-Aligned Media unravels the murky origins of ISIS and unveils how the group's meteoric rise in Iraq and Syria is a continuation of US psychological warfare designed to facilitate the Zionist-Neocon agenda of toppling seven sovereign Middle Eastern and North African States.

Warning: Don’t Share This Article, Facebook Might Ban You!

Facebook has said it will remove content in support of violent or criminal organizations. The company also throws out the word “terrorists.”

Being an international company, Facebook will end up being the arbitrator of which groups are terrorists and which groups are freedom fighters.

Which side is okay to support in Ukraine? Is it ok to support or condone Palestinians? What about Anonymous, the “cyber-terrorist” collective? Supporting the protesters in Ferguson? Russian dissidents speaking out against Putin? What about supporting the US military, which has been called a terrorist organization by other countries?

Facebook has decided to become the world’s censor. This may end up being the final nail in the coffin of a social media outlet that has seen users flee from other idiotic policies.

In addition to a ban on supporting organizations that Facebook has decided it doesn’t like, the social media giant has decided it’s time to protect the politicians they have bought.

SAUDI ARABIA’S KING MEETS TOP US CORPORATE INSIDERS

In recent days, Saudi Arabia’s King Salman has met with senior US corporate executives during his current trip to Washington. The king seeks to lure foreign investment in the face of sustained low oil prices. Salman is on his first visit to the US since taking the helm of his country in January. He held talks with President Obama on Friday.

Drivers Fighting Back Against Traffic Ticket Revenue Schemes

LibertyFight.com regularly receives e-mails from readers who are pissed off about traffic tickets and want to fight them. I received emails this week from two California women who had fought their tickets and beat them in court. After getting several extensions which dragged it out for over a year, the witness for the prosecution (the cop) didn't show up! A little effort goes a long way in this regard. Using the state's own 'laws' and procedures against them, such as getting the maximum number of extensions and opting for a trial by declaration, can greatly increase the chances of beating that revenue ticket.

The Danger Of Eliminating Cash

In the early days of central banking, one primary objective of the new system was to take ownership of the public's gold, so that in a crisis the public would be unable to withdraw it. Gold was to be replaced by fiat cash which could be issued by the central bank at will. This removed from the public the power to bring a bank down by withdrawing their property. A primary, if unspoken, objective of modern central banking is to do the same with fiat cash itself.

Fox News Doesn’t Get it, Blames Russia for Refugee Crisis in EU

DC has lost it....totally!

There is one thing Fox News has learned to do well over the years — that's to blame Russia for all the bad stuff that happens in the world. The Syrian war breaks out — quick to blame the Russians, the US government organized a coup in Ukraine — of course the Russians were behind it, the channel screams. What's next, Fox News? Perhaps the Russians also started the Ebola virus or were behind the extinction of the dinosaurs?

This time, it was no different after Fox News decided to tackle the refugee crisis in Europe. KT McFarland, a Fox News National Security Analyst invited to talk on the issue, was quick to blame… that's right, none other than Russian President Vladimir Putin for creating the refugee crisis in Europe.

ULTIMATUM: United States require Greece to ban entry to Russia to it's airspace

Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Greece confirmed today that official Washington sent a request to Russia denies access to the air space of the country.

Request Americans applies to flights of Russian planes carrying humanitarian aid for refugees from Syria, according to the Foreign Ministry, as saying.

Russia and the United States has so far not formally declared on the occasion of this announcement, but the response is certainly expected.
The statement said that the request is under consideration, Reuters reported.

Russian news agency RIA Novosti reported earlier, citing an unnamed diplomatic source, that Greece has already rejected the US request.

Scorecard on U.S. Interventionism

Since 9/11, the United States has flailed away and attacked or invaded at least seven Muslim countries. (I say "at least" because, in contravention of the U.S. Constitution, American presidents now run secret overseas conflicts, including the latest drone wars, without public knowledge or the consent of their representatives in Congress.) Since U.S. (non-Muslim) military presence or intervention in Muslim countries was the original motivator for the 9/11 attacks, doubling down on a failed policy seemed a poor bet among many expert analysts, even during the period of hysteria after the attacks on the Pentagon and Twin Towers.

Striking workers may have to identify themselves to police, carry a letter of authorisation and wear an armband under proposed reforms

Every worker wanting to join a strike picket could be forced to identify themselves to police, carry a letter of authorisation and wear an armband, under proposed reforms to trade union laws that could be in breach of international agreements, human rights groups have warned.

The Government’s plans for new legal hurdles making it harder for union members to take strike action are described as a “major attack” on civil liberties in the UK, in a joint statement by Liberty, Amnesty UK and the British Institute of Human Rights.

Accusing the Government of “seeking to undermine the rights of all working people,” they claim the measures will discourage ordinary people from coming together to protect their jobs, surrendering more power to employers, and weakening the quality of their working lives.

Carriker Jury: “The law is wrong”

A Sedgwick County jury acquitted Kyler Carriker on the charge of felony murder, yesterday, after prosecutors Trinity Muth and Jennifer Amyx presented their case.

At the crux of Muth and Amyx’ argument was that the jury was required, by law, to deliver a guilty verdict for felony murder, if the state proved that Carriker arranged the drug deal that ultimately ended in Ronald Betts’ death.

However, the jury determined that Carriker could be guilty of arranging that deal, and still be innocent of felony murder.

'Talk, don't Taser' worries revealed

Giving Tasers to all officers risks the weapons being used when talking could suffice, according to concerns outlined in police documents.

Police bosses ultimately decided that such risks could be minimised and the benefits of giving all officers the weapons outweighed them.

That was their call to make as an operational matter - and Police Minister Michael Woodhouse would likewise not be involved if any future call was made to arm officers with guns.

There is no suggestion that is on the cards, but documents released to the Herald show that a community reference group consulted by police had concerns that expanding Tasers bridged the gap to an eventual arming of police.

Police Commissioner Mike Bush announced at the end of July that all frontline police officers would soon be armed with Tasers while on duty.

Who are the Evildoers? — List of names

Introduction by Lasha Darkmoon

Are these really the most powerful people in the world? Or is there a shadowy group behind them, pulling their strings and exerting hidden pressures? According to Forbes magazine, 25-year-old singer Taylor Swift is the 64th most powerful person on the planet, not far behind the Queen of England. This is just not believable. So the question we need to ask ourselves is: Who are the puppet masters and who are the puppets?

The Rise of the Inhumanes

America’s descent into totalitarian violence is accelerating. Like the Bush regime, the Obama regime has a penchant for rewarding Justice (sic) Department officials who trample all over the US Constitution. Last year America’s First Black President nominated David Barron to be a judge on the First US Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston.

Barron is responsible for the Justice (sic) Department memo that gave the legal OK for Obama to murder a US citizen with a missile fired from a drone.

Homeland Defense: The Pentagon Declares War on America

The “PATRIOT Act” is a repressive “coordination” of the entities of force and deception, the police, intelligence and the military. It broadens, centralizes and combines the surveillance, arrest and harassment capabilities of the police and intelligence apparatus. Homeland defense is, in essence, a form of state terrorism directed against the American people and democracy itself. It is the Pentagon Inc. declaring war on America.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am a Christian pacifist who never, ever advocates violence, but does have some very deep philosophical (and practical) differences of opinion with the former, and current, administration.

I have been very (and generally politely) vocal about my opinions on this blog; does that make me "an enemy of the State" or a "terrorist" in the United States of America?!?

Unfortunately, the answer is probably yes.

And I have to ask, what will be the ultimate outcome of this way of thinking by our government for me, and people like me, who are non-violent, but think very differently from the way this government thinks?

Under the NDAA, President Obama has the authority to have me arrested, and jailed indefinitely, without due process.

And if his attorneys' twisted logic, President Obama believes, gives him the authority to kill anyone anywhere in the world who "needs killing", how far a leap will it be to have Americans extrajudicially assassinated right here at home with a drone strike?!?

Unfortunately, that leap of twisted logic, from murdering on the planet to murdering right here at home, is not a large one.

Corporations own every politician, at every level of government, and We the People are viewed as ...chattel.

The Bizarre Suicide of the American Empire

I believe the lens of the frontier clarifies the otherwise bizarre suicide of the American empire. We must remember that settling the American west was swift and easy. Technological superiority, diseases and overwhelming numbers allowed civilians to do most of the ethnic cleansing while there was an actual boundary between the natives and European colonists.

Margaret Sanger and Eugenics Publishing Company

My Mom just gave me an original 1920 edition of the book, Woman and the New Race, by Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood. Mom found it in a box of books owned by my deceased great-uncle.
It was in this book Sanger wrote, “The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it,” which has come to be one of the banes of pro-abort existence, forcing them to spend an inordinate amount of time trying to say now really, Sanger did not support eugenics.

At any rate, I was looking on ebay to see if the book was worth anything and discovered that while this first edition was published by Truth Publishing Company, the 1923 edition was published by Eugenics Publishing Company.

Photographer Wants To Open Your Eyes To The Brutal Realities Of The American Prison Complex

When discussing the contemporary state of the prison industrial complex in America, the numbers are frightening. The personal stories, however, are far more horrific. In the month of July alone, at least five black women were found dead in jail. There are numerous tales of grisly murders, suicides, rapes, beatings, and prisoners being denied medication and proper medical treatment, dying as a result. Each story is more chilling than the last.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The penal system in this country doesn't work at all, and it is by design.

More recidivism guarantees more money to keep a brutally dysfunctional system in place.

Please remember: in Sweden, they are closing many of their prisons because they don't have enough prisoners to house, and this is not by accident.

The Swedish penal system focuses completely on rehabilitation, so that when released from a Swedish prison, that former prisoner can take their place in society.
