The Most Outrageous Fraud Ever Perpetrated on the Canadian People

The good folks at COMER have for years – decades, actually – been trying to get people to pay attention to what is far and away the biggest, most outrageous fraud ever perpetrated on the Canadian people. I am speaking here of the fact that instead of the Canadian government borrowing money from its own bank, our bank – the Bank of Canada (BoC) – it has, since 1974 chosen instead to borrow from private international and domestic financial institutions providing them with enormous, absolutely risk free profits for almost four decades.

Baltimore Man Dies From Injuries Sustained While In Police Detention

The arrest, captured on video, has raised more questions about police tactics. Police say Gray was fine when he was placed in a van and transported. But his family says his spine was severed 80 percent from his neck. The question: what happened, and when. Baltimore mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake has promised transparency and a full investigation, but the Gray family attorney said in a statement they believed the police are keeping the circumstances of Freddie's death secret until they develop a version of events that will absolve them of all responsibility.

Campus Administrators Invoke ‘Civility’ to Silence Critical Speech

University administrators are successfully rallying around the value of “civility” in discourse as a means of silencing and getting rid of professors deemed politically troublesome.

Writing in The Nation, Joan W. Scott, professor emeritus at the Institute for Advanced Study’s School of Social Science in Princeton, N.J., and adjunct professor of history at the Graduate Center at City University of New York, reports that administrators at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign denied formerly tenured professor Steven Salaita a promised position at their institution because of critical comments he made about Israel’s 2014 military assault on Gaza.

“Well-organized supporters of Israel alerted the university to his tweets, accused him of anti-Semitism, and questioned his scholarship as well as his political judgment,” Scott writes.

Ukrainian website calls for mass deportations and internment of dissenters in Ukraine

This idea was put forward by website "Khvylya", close to the administration of Poroshenko .

"The National Security Council should adopt a decision about the deportation from Ukraine to the Russian Federation of persons who are potential candidates for the dead in the name of the glory of the "Russian world" [Ukrainian media is putting the blame for recent murders in Ukraine on Putin - KR]. Deportation for their own safety, as shooting them on the territory of the Russian Federation loses all meaning. Let them go and preach that they are victims of Bandera terror and repressions, for which they may even make some money. We do not care, because none of us are going to refute the thesis of the Kremlin about the fascist junta and the banderites"

So the fans of the Kremlin should be confined for five years, until the regime and mentality will change in Russia, or offer them to leave on their own.

Sony Once Again Ridiculously Warns The Media Not To Report On Leaked Emails

While one might argue that revealing internal gossip and bad jokes by Sony execs is morally questionable, it seems that stories about paying for political investigations of companies you don't like is extremely newsworthy. As is trying to influence international trade policy with statements that completely contradict what you've said publicly. There is plenty of newsworthy information in these documents, and the media would be doing the First Amendment a major disservice to ignore newsworthy information just because Sony doesn't like it.

''Stop TTIP'': Thousands of Activists Gather in Germany to Protest Corporate Trade Deal

Activists gathered across Germany on Saturday to protest the upcoming trade deal between Europe and the United States. Critics fear the deal will erode sovereignty and endanger multiple industries, including health and technology. Supporters of the deal say it would bring $100 billion annually for both sides of the deal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The only way any deal bring billions to the signers of the deal is to take it away from someone else, someone smaller.

Judge in Stanley children kidnapping case forces sheriff to reveal documents

Reporter Clay Herrmann of the Hot Springs Daily News[2] in Hot Springs Arkansas has published copies of the Search Warrant, the Affidavit for the Search Warrant, and the Search Warrant Return form used to take the seven children out of the Stanley home on January 12, 2015 with the full force of a tactical SWAT-style team. As has previously been reported, the children were removed by Garland County Deputy Sheriff Sgt. Michael Wright, against the protests of social service workers and a medical team who were present at the scene and saw nothing warranting the children's removal.

The Crowning Glory of Keynesianism

Readers of this publication will know that for some time, I’ve forecasted the creation of a new monetary system by which governments and banks gain total control over all monetary transactions.

On the surface of it, this may seem an impossible goal, as it would be so all-encompassing and would eliminate economic freedom entirely. Surely, it would not be tolerated. However, I believe that it’s not only relatively easy to create, but it will be sold in such a way that the public will see it as an absolute panacea to their economic woes. Only those who are far-sighted will understand its level of destruction in advance of its implementation.

American Justice? FBI Lab Overstated 95% Of Forensic Hair Matches (Including 32 Death Sentences)

Of 28 examiners with the FBI Laboratory’s microscopic hair comparison unit, 26 overstated forensic matches in ways that favored prosecutors in more than 95 percent of the 268 trials reviewed so far, according to the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers (NACDL) and the Innocence Project, which are assisting the government with the country’s largest post-conviction review of questioned forensic evidence.

The cases include those of 32 defendants sentenced to death. Of those, 14 have been executed or died in prison.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are vast numbers of cases the FBI is known to have rigged lab test results on. Frederick Whitehurst, once the head of the FBI lab, tried to blow the whistle on this practice of framing innocent people under the guise of science. The FBI was caught faking the evidence in the murder of Vincent Foster, EVIDENCE found on the wreckage of TWA 800, the murder weapon planted on James Earl Ray in the assassination of Martin Luther King, etc.

JADE HELM 15: ARMY SPECIAL OPERATIONS COMMAND PUSHES BACK AGAINST ALARMIST CLAIMS ABOUT UPCOMING EXERCISE

U.S. Army Special Operations Command is pushing back against alarmist claims that an upcoming U.S. military exercise is a preparation for imposing martial law or subduing right-leaning groups and individuals. Conspiracy theories about the exercise, known as JADE HELM 15, appeared online this week. Some commentators railing against the event referred to an online slide show allegedly created by USASOC, which outlined a special operations exercise slated to take place across multiple states, outside the confines of U.S. military bases. In the slide show, a map of the southwest region of the United States labels Texas and other territory as “hostile” or “insurgent pocket.” The document also refers to coordination with law enforcement agencies.

How Oklahoma City Bombing Propaganda Effects Real Americans Decades Later

Mohammed Abdullah is a black American, U.S. Marine veteran, and convert to Islam who found something very wrong with his country's government. Abdullah, an armed guard, had come to disbelieve the U.S. government's official story regarding 9/11. He also felt a serious moral obligation to expose the lies, which blame Muslims for the attack. So he stood outside the local police dept. handing out DVDS & fliers. Soon after, the Police Dept. itself & the City Attorney filed a restraining order against him, in an attempt to ban him from all contact with hundreds of city employees. In shocking court testimony, one of the 'victims,' a female officer, justified her fear of Abdullah and his words with her beliefs about OKC and anti-government extremists. She referred to "my knowledge of incidents at Oklahoma City" and how "no one was able to do anything about it because of First Amendment rights."

CONGRESS IS ATTEMPTING TO REAUTHORIZE KEY PATRIOT ACT PROVISIONS BY SNEAKING IT INTO “USA FREEDOM ACT”

Yet with Section 215’s lifespan now stretching to a matter of weeks, supporters of broad surveillance powers have yet to put forth a bill for their preservation – evidence, opponents believe, that the votes for reauthorization do not exist, particularly not in the House of Representatives.

More likely, according to a multiple Hill sources, is a different option under consideration: making the major NSA reform bill of the last Congress the point of departure for reauthorizing 215 in the current one.

The bill would not abridge NSA collection of Americans’ international communications, nor prevent the NSA or the FBI from warrantlessly searching through its troves of them for Americans’ identifying information. Nor would it restrict a constellation of surveillance efforts authorized by a Reagan-era executive order. Even a recently disclosed bulk domestic phone records collection dragnet by the Drug Enforcement Agency would be untouched.

OK City - Why Did Bill Clinton's National Security Council Fund ATF "Experiments" in Building Home Made ANFO Truck Bombs in 1994?

According to the federal government, an Ammonia Nitrate-Fuel Oil (ANFO) truck bomb allegedly destroyed the Alfred P. Murrah building in downtown Oklahoma City on the morning of Wednesday, April 19, 1995. Also, according to recently released government documents, an individual experienced in loading large amounts of ammonia nitrate fertilizer into a vehicle for use as a terrorist truck bomb was present at the OKC scene and actually witnessed the worst terrorist attack in U.S. history. Records indicate that this ANFO explosives expert and his associates had constructed and destroyed at least eight vehicles in "test bombing experiments" out at a secret range in the New Mexico desert in the twelve months prior to the OKC bombing. He and his fellow explosives experts even photographed and videotaped these truck bombs as they detonated.

Koresch supplied the ammunition. The BATF agents allowed Koresch to try out their weapons.

It appears to be the Oklahoma County Bomb Squad. It's their bomb disposal unit, essentially, is what it is. And it is what they would use to- if- if the report that we gave you just a few moments ago turns out to be correct, that they have found a second explosive device of some kind inside this building, they'll back that trailer down there and the bomb squad folks will go in and they will use that- that trailer- you see the bucket on the back there.

The pilot who took the photos wishes (for the obvious reasons) to remain anonymous, but these photos are purported to be of an area near Camp Gruber-Braggs, Oklahoma in early April of 1995. Needless to say, just days after this photo was taken, the Murrah Building in Oklahoma City was destroyed (along with internal cutter charges) by a Ryder truck full of explosives.

NEW! In a recently discovered news article written by the Washington Post on June 17th, 1997, the Oklahoma National Guard authenticates the following photos as being exactly what they appear to be, photos of a Ryder truck in a clandestine base at Camp Gruber-Braggs.

Canadian Wheat Board to be sold to Saudi-owned Global Grain Group

The federal government is privatizing the Canadian Wheat Board with a sale to a Saudi-owned company.

G3 Global Grain Group will get 50.1 per cent of the company in exchange for an investment of $250 million. The other 49.9 per cent will be kept in trust for farmers who deliver grain to the board.

Any farmer who does deliver will get $5 per tonne in equity in the organization. In seven years, G3 Global Grain Group has the option to buy back the shares from farmers at market value.

SOLD! Canadian Wheat Board no longer quite so Canadian

"Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz announced that G3, a joint venture owned by two foreign corporations, Bunge and the Saudi investment company SALIC, is the beneficiary of CWB privatization. With this, the Conservative government has accomplished the biggest transfer of wealth away from farmers in the history of Canada," said Jan Slomp, National Farmers Union (NFU) President.

"The CWB's physical assets, its commercial relationships, and its good name have all been given away. The 'buyers' of the CWB actually get to keep the $250 million pittance they are 'paying' for it. Bunge's 2014 sales totalled $58 billion and multi-billion dollar SALIC is a subsidiary of the Saudi sovereign wealth fund, PIF."

Can the courts liberate the Bank of Canada?

You know the old aphorism, "If a tree falls in the forest…?" Well, how about this one: if citizens win a significant victory in court against an autocratic government involving the fleecing of Canadians of billions of their hard-earned tax dollars and no one in the media actually covers it, did it really happen?

That might well be the question being asked over at the Committee for Monetary and Economic Reform (COMER), a very small and low-budget Toronto think-tank. With their lawyer Rocco Galati (of Supreme Court fame in the Nadon case) they have been steadily winning court battles initiated in 2011 that would oblige the Bank of Canada to return to its pre-1974 practice of lending the government money virtually interest-free. But the mainstream media has boycotted the story. Galati believes the Harper government has done some serious arm-twisting to keep the story buried.

New and more powerful weapons are flowing into local police departments daily, and still others are new to the marketplace.

One weapon about to make its debut is the “Z-Ro Retinal Obfuscation” gun. When fired, the gun allows an officer to temporarily blind his targeted subject for up to 15 minutes.

The ECC (Economic Consultative Committee), fewer than 50, (yes FEWER than 50 people) meet twelve times a year to determine how we, the citizens of the world, are going to be sheered like sheep by the ruling and banking class. Can you imagine if we met, in secret, to plot against the government, the banks and the corporations? Wouldn’t we have a missile or rifle shoved up our back side? Wouldn’t we be thrown in prison, if we were lucky, as an enemy of the state?

    US objects to Boston bomber’s lawyers’ call that jurors ‘look deep inside’

    Thursday’s objection by prosecutors was in response to an earlier filing by the defense that, like a great many in Tsarnaev’s case, was submitted under seal and barred from public view. The prosecutions’ description of the defense filing could not be independently verified.

    Webmaster's Commentary:

    FBI director: U.S. Holocaust museum program mandatory for new agents

    James Coney calls Holocaust most significant event in history, says new agents must attend 'Law Enforcement and Society: Lessons of the Holocaust' program.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    How about reading the Constitution and the Bill of Rights as a mandatory requirement for new agents? Were these not historical and significant?

    Oregon gold miners in BLM dispute call on armed supporters to stand down

    A man who owns a gold-mining claim on federal land in southwestern Oregon asked for help defending it after U.S. authorities ordered him to stop work, but he is now telling his armed supporters to back off.

    Rick Barclay said Thursday that he hoped to prevent his fight with federal regulators from turning into the kind of high-profile standoff at a Nevada ranch last year.

    NYPD officials embarrassed and powerless as cop blog fills up with disturbing racist comments

    Week after week, racist posts appear on Thee Rant, a blog for current or former New York City police officers: African Americans are called “apes;” a retired officer says one of the blessings of retirement is not having to work the Puerto Rican Day parade, with its “old obese tatted up women stuffed into outfits that they purchased or shoplifted at the local Kmart store; a Middle Eastern cab driver berated by an officer is termed a “third worlder” who should have his “head split open.”

    Uncle Sam Wants Your Keys, Says 'Trust Me'

    For months, federal law enforcement agencies and industry have been deadlocked on a highly contentious issue: Should tech companies be obliged to guarantee government access to encrypted data on smartphones and other digital devices, and is that even possible without compromising the security of law-abiding customers?

    Recently, the head of the National Security Agency provided a rare hint of what some U.S. officials think might be a technical solution. Why not, suggested Adm. Michael S. Rogers, require technology companies to create a digital key that could open any smartphone or other locked device to obtain text messages or photos, but divide the key into pieces so that no one person or agency alone could decide to use it?

    Ukraine Blocks 10,000 Websites, Confiscates a Newspaper

    As I reported yesterday, the Security Bureau of Ukraine, on April 7th, had seized and disappeared two Odessa bloggers, who were trying to get an independent investigation, and ultimate prosecution, of the individuals who participated in the 2 May 2014 massacre of regime opponents, and who burned, shot, and clubbed to death perhaps over 200 in the Odessa Trade Unions Building - the event that precipitated the breakaway of Donbass from the rest of the former Ukraine, the country's civil war.

    And I also reported that April 7th saw the official announcement that, "The security service of Ukraine ... has discontinued operation of a number of Internet sites that were used to perpetrate information campaigns of aggression on the part of the Russian Federation aimed at violent change or overthrow of the constitutional order and territorial integrity and inviolability of Ukraine."

    Government, Military, & Business Use Humans as Guinea Pigs

    Below is a list depicting the rampant use of humans as guinea pigs in government, military, and medical experiments over the last century. Links to reliable sources are provided to confirm the information on each item presented. There are still today officials in the government, military, and even business leaders who sadly feel no need to inform us when we are used in potentially hazardous experiments.

    Note that some of these experiments specifically targeted minorities and those in poor areas. Thankfully, this kind of unethical experimentation is rare now, but it continues in hidden pockets around the globe. And large-scale experimentation with risky technologies like genetically modified foods, nuclear power, and nanotechnology used in consumer goods is still rarely questioned in the media or government.
