Army eyes North Cascades for helicopter training

Army aviation officials at Joint Base Lewis-McChord want to create a North Cascades training area for helicopter pilots to practice flyovers and high-altitude landings on U.S. Forest Service lands.

The high-elevation mountain training area would extend over an aerial space largely east of the Cascades from around Leavenworth up to the Canadian border.

It would include seven remote landing zones, including one just inside the boundary of the Alpine Lakes Wilderness Area and another within a mile of the Pacific Crest Trail north of Highway 20.

What If Everything You Were Ever Taught Was A Lie?

By: Gregg Prescott, M.S.

www.in5d.com.

There is a war going on right now and it doesn’t involve guns or the military industrial complex.
It’s a war on consciousness and most people are clueless that it even exists.

In the beginning… there was religion and government.
It is blatantly obvious that religion has been teaching either half truths or full out lies, right from the start. According to the Christian bible, God created Adam and Eve and told them to be fruitful and multiply.

Based under this premise, we would all be the products of incest.

FLASHBACK: Bush's Mysterious 'New Programs'

Not that George W. Bush needs much encouragement, but Sen. Lindsey Graham suggested to Attorney General Alberto Gonzales a new target for the administration’s domestic operations -- Fifth Columnists, supposedly disloyal Americans who sympathize and collaborate with the enemy.

“The administration has not only the right, but the duty, in my opinion, to pursue Fifth Column movements,” Graham, R-S.C., told Gonzales during Senate Judiciary Committee hearings on Feb. 6. 2006

British Royal Nazi Salute – a Sign of the Times

The British royal family is up in arms – excuse the pun – over old video footage that shows the young Queen Elizabeth giving a Heil Hitler salute. A photograph published on its front page by British tabloid newspaper The Sun has caused a storm of controversy, with the British monarchy denouncing it as an invasion of privacy. But the real significance is that the image shows how Western so-called democracies were – and still are – so close to embracing fascism.

There was a consensus among Britain’s ruling class during the 1930s that quietly but enthusiastically endorsed Hitler and fascism as a bulwark against democracy and socialism in particular.

New Obama Initiative To Ban Guns For Some Social Security Recipients, Veterans, and Disabled

By Brandon Turbeville

Whenever one thinks the Obama administration’s war on the Second Amendment couldn’t get any more insane, Barack Obama prances onto the stage to prove everyone wrong yet again.

This time, it is not merely a carefully planned and orchestrated jig on the graves of mass shooting victims or pathetic whining about “gun crime” and the amount of time he must give regarding the issue. It is a push to ban a large number of Social Security benefits recipients from owning guns...

UN Agenda 21 Still Advancing Worldwide

By Bruce Tanner

What is Agenda 21? — Quoting from the UN website: "Agenda 21 is a comprehensive plan of action to be taken globally, nationally and locally by organizations of the United Nations System, Governments, and Major Groups in every area in which human impacts on the environment."(sic)

Many have said that Agenda 21 is now outdated policy that's fallen into neglect. This is far from true. For example, among many other things, the slow-motion train wreck of our ongoing world economic collapse supports UN Agenda 21, and the UN conference on "Post-2015 Sustainability Agenda" coming this September is a clear reiteration. Apologists say that Agenda 21 is only "Soft Law," a policy that has no teeth. But they're lying. In 20 years, through stealth implementation, this plan has become embedded in local policies all over the United States...

While Donald Trump did not plan on having a Jewish daughter, he is glad he did so, the business tycoon said Tuesday night upon accepting the Liberty Award at The Algemeiner’s ‘Jewish 100? Gala in New York City.

On stage, Trump concluded his acceptance speech by asserting his strong support for the Jewish state. He told the audience, “We love Israel. We will fight for Israel 100 percent, 1,000 percent. It will be there forever.”

They are going to Pererow us again!

Donald Trump, the billionaire real estate developer, casino owner, entertainment mogul, TV personality and father of a woman who converted to Judaism and says she observes Shabbat, tossed hit hat into the huge ring of Republican candidates for president Tuesday.

What might really be interesting is if he does not win the Republican nomination but runs as an Independent. third-party candidate. That would make for the most interesting presidential election since former Alabama governor and segregationist George Wallace’s four pitches for the presidency, earning him the description of America’s “most influential loser.”

Odierno says U.S military is spread thin: ‘We’re going to have to say what we’re not going to do’

We are using 3 brigades based in eastern Europe to fight Russian rebels in Ukraine!
Now that is news!

Gen. Ordierno said decisions about cutting the size of the force from 570,000 to the current 490,000 were made several years ago when the Pentagon expected a peaceful Europe, a declining commitment in Afghanistan and no return in Iraq, Reutersreported.

Instead, the Army is regularly using three brigades in eastern Europe to combat Russian rebels in Ukraine and another three brigades in Afghanistan, a brigade in Iraq, one in Kuwait and another brigade will rotate to South Korea, Gen. Ordierno said.

Obama Is in a Bind on Drugs That Could Cost Consumers Billions of Dollars

The Obama administration is caught in a trap as it tries to bring home a trade deal with its Pacific Rim partners. Some of the chief beneficiaries may be big drug companies like Novartis AG, Roche Holding AG, and Pfizer Inc. while the losers could be consumers in both the U.S. and the region.

The administration says it’s bound by congressionally imposed instructions to try to get as much current U.S. law as possible into trade accords -- including stringent protections for patented drugs that it’s repeatedly tried to ease at home to encourage more cost-saving generics.

Whistleblower prison guard paid the price for reporting abuse

“This inmate was cowering under a blanket in the corner of his cell,” Pisciotta recalled in an interview this week. “He was an older man, very frail and mentally ill. He wasn’t trying to fight anybody. He was just scared. He was no threat to anyone.”

He saw everything that happened, and wrestled with what to do.

“I knew that it was morally wrong. They wanted us to prepare statements and not say anything. I told them I just couldn’t go along with it,” said Pisciotta, 41.

Pisciotta told the truth, and Wilson was arrested. After testifying against Wilson, Pisciotta was fired and lost almost everything: his home, his friends, his pension and his career.

“I knew once I did the right thing, and I stepped forward...my career would be over,” Pisciotta told a jury during Wilson’s 2009 federal criminal trial. “It’s something you don’t do. You don’t go against other officers. Because my life has been a living hell ever since.’’

We Are All Greeks Now

The poor and the working class in the United States know what it is to be Greek. They know underemployment and unemployment. They know life without a pension. They know existence on a few dollars a day. They know gas and electricity being turned off because of unpaid bills. They know the crippling weight of debt. They know being sick and unable to afford medical care. They know the state seizing their meager assets, a process known in the United States as “civil asset forfeiture,” which has permitted American police agencies to confiscate more than $3 billion in cash and property. They know the profound despair and abandonment that come when schools, libraries, neighborhood health clinics, day care services, roads, bridges, public buildings and assistance programs are neglected or closed. They know the financial elites’ hijacking of democratic institutions to impose widespread misery in the name of austerity. They, like the Greeks, know what it is to be abandoned.

Filmmaker Laura Poitras Sues US Over 'Kafkaesque' Harassment

"I'm filing this lawsuit because the government uses the U.S. border to bypass the rule of law," Poitras said. "This simply should not be tolerated in a democracy. I am also filing this suit in support of the countless other less high-profile people who have also been subjected to years of Kafkaesque harassment at the borders. We have a right to know how this system works and why we are targeted."

Poitras has spoken openly about her harassment at U.S. borders, which included reportedly being placed on the government's No Fly List after returning home from filming My Country, My Country, a 2006 documentary which profiled Iraqi critics of the U.S. occupation.

She has also had her laptop, camera, mobile phone, and reporter notebooks seized and their contents copied, according to the suit. On one occasion, Poitras was allegedly threatened with handcuffing for taking notes during her detention, as border agents said her pen could be used as a weapon.

Prime Minister Tsipras’ Bailout Reform Package: An Act of Treason against the Greek People

After having launched a Referendum to refute and refuse the debt bailout agreement put together by the Troika, Prime Minister Tsipras together with his newly instated Finance Minister, comes up four days latter with an austerity package broadly similar to the one which was turned down by the Greek government in June.

This about-turn had been carefully engineered. The Greek people were misled and deceived. The Referendum was an outright ”ritual of democracy”.

Tsipras had made a deal with the creditors. He was in favor of accepting the demands of the creditors all along.

Clearing EU Hurdles, Greek Austerity Package Moves Forward

The German Parliament on Friday voted yes on entering a new round of negotiations for a Greek bailout, and the European Union formally approved a bridging loan—two steps that move the controversial €86 billion rescue package for debt-ridden Greece forward past a significant hurdle.

Parliament, or Bundestang, voted 439-119, with 40 lawmakers abstaining, in favor of beginning talks on a third bailout which, as Common Dreams reported on Thursday, "comes at a high political and social cost" through severe austerity measures—but which Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said he was "forced to accept."

It’s called the European Stability Mechanism.

FLASHBACK - THE LOOTING OF SOCIAL SECURITY TO BALANCE THE FEDERAL BUDGET

What we've been doing, Mr. Chairman, in all reality, is taken a hundred billion out of the Social Security Trust Fund, transferring it over to the spending column, and spending it. Our friends to the left here are getting their tax cuts, we getting our spending increases, and hollering surplus, surplus, and balanced budget, and balanced budget plans when we continue to spend a hundred billion more than we take in.

Hillary Forbids Young Supporters from Talking to Press

The Hillary Clinton campaign forbid young supporters from talking to the press at an event last night in Iowa:

"Here's what struck me," said Susan Page of USA Today, "when I read the coverage in the Des Moines Register this morning. Jennifer Jacobs, who's been on your show, was covering this last night. Big demonstrations outside of young people for O'Malley and Hillary Clinton. She went up to the Clinton supporters -- these are protesters for Clinton -- and they were told they were not allowed to [speak to] a reporter."

Page continued, "Now, why in the world would the campaign tell their own supporters who came out to campaign in favor Hillary Clinton ... these are the young people, college kids, for Hillary, and they've been told they can't talk to reporters. Why in the world would you do that?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Why, indeed, except for knowing that there are some very uncomfortable facts these reports might know about her professional, and personal, past, she does not want dredged up with supporters, at this point in her foundering candidacy.

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.

Hillary Clinton - War Goddess, Corporate Shill, Anti-Populist

All US presidential cycles are money controlled corrupted processes with no legitimacy whatever. Voters have no say despite believing otherwise.

They naively think electing new bums replacing old ones improves things. Their choices are among an array of long ago bought and paid for candidates supporting what most harms them.

The late Gore Vidal said "(b)y the time a (candidate) gets to be presidential material, (he or she has) been bought ten times over."

"There is only one party in the United States, the Property Party (with) two right wings: Republican and Democrat," he explained.

Hillary Clinton perhaps represents the worst choice among an array of aspirants looking more like a police lineup. Previous articles explained her warmongering lust for endless conflicts. She's unabashedly hawkish.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The choices coming at us this coming Presidential election are horrifically bleak.

By the time the primaries roll around, the candidates have been fully vetted by the corporations which own them, and only those with the best chance of doing the absolute best by those corporations will have a chance to compete for the big "prize" of the presidency.

We have an elaborate, Kabuki-like process of elections in this country, but at the end of the day, they are simply a mechanism, engineered to make the American people feel they have some control over their destiny, when they absolutely do not.

And if you don't believe me, just ask yourself; when was the last time this country's leadership actually negotiated something which actually bettered your circumstances in this country?!? If you are hesitant, trust me, you are not alone; it has been one heck of a long, long time, and things do not appear to be getting better for most of us any of us soon.

Donald Trump says he is no apprentice when it comes to Israel

By Jacob Kamaras/JNS.org

In the middle of a phone interview with JNS.org on June 26, billionaire real estate mogul and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump leaves his desk to scan the wall of his office for awards he has received from the Jewish community.

Trump reads the text of some relevant plaques before returning to his desk. But before this reporter can move on to the next question, Trump eagerly points out that he was the grand marshal of New York City’s annual Salute to Israel Parade (now the Celebrate Israel Parade) in 2004 “at a time when it was quite dangerous to do that” and “a pretty tough time for Israel,” in the middle of the second Palestinian intifada (uprising against Israel). He also cites a video endorsement he gave Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for the Jewish state’s January 2013 election, expressing pride that it was “at the time the only ad done by a celebrity” for Netanyahu.

Trump loves Israel and Netanyahu and hates Obama. His candidacy for the GOP nomination is going to wake up people tired of political correctness.
By: Tzvi Ben-Gedalyahu

Donald Trump, the billionaire real estate developer, casino owner, entertainment mogul, TV personality and father of a woman who converted to Judaism and says she observes Shabbat, tossed hit hat into the huge ring of Republican candidates for president Tuesday.

Being a maverick gives him the image of sticking by his word. When he says he loves Israel, he puts his money where his mouth is. Trump has a huge real estate project in Netanya, and his daughter Ivanka, who converted to Judaism, looks favorably on Israel for real estate investment.

Her husband is from an Orthodox Jewish family, and she has taken her conversion seriously, adding “Yael” to her name and saying that “we’re pretty observant, more than some, less than others.”

Obama Is Sending Military-Grade Spy Gear To Egypt. What Could Go Wrong?

President Barack Obama's State Department has approved the sale to Egypt of a sophisticated, military-grade mobile surveillance system that experts and activists fear Cairo's authoritarian regime will use against the country's citizens.

The State Department says that Egypt will only use the system on the Egyptian border with war-torn Libya, where a branch of the Islamic State group is mushrooming. But the current Egyptian government sees domestic critics as existential threats at least on par with the extremist group.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Obama knows precisely what the Al-Sisi government will do with this equipment.

As reported in US NEWS on 25 July, 2016:

The death sentences issued June 16 against former Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi and 90 Muslim Brotherhood members raised the concerns of political parties on the continued violence in the Sinai Peninsula, with the possibility of this violence expanding across Egypt. The Associated Press RELATED Egypt Court Confirms Ousted President Morsi's Death Sentence A sheikh from the Sawarka tribe, one of the largest tribes in Sinai, told Al-Monitor on condition of anonymity that Morsi’s death sentence will adversely affect Sinai. He said that the innocent people of Sinai will pay the price of the continued power struggle between the Egyptian army and the Brotherhood. According to the sheikh, the death sentences will translate into armed violence in Sinai.

IF the above is, in fact, likely as these death sentences are carried out (and with 106 to be executed - that will almost have to be done by rotating firing squads with prisoners lined up in shackles, and the corpses dragged away en masse), this equipment will most likely mean more arrests, more executions...and more violence against the sitting government of Egypt.

This action on the part of the US government, demonstrates yet more incontrovertible proof that one of the most crucial criteria for getting hired by this Administration is the pathological inability to think any scenario through to its logical conclusion.

“BANK LIVES MATTER” – OBAMA ADMINISTRATION MAKES ANOTHER MOVE TO PROTECT PROFITS OF CRIMINAL MEGA BANKS

Three top Democrats are accusing the Department of Housing and Urban Development of quietly removing a key clause in its requirements for taxpayer-guaranteed mortgage insurance in order to spare two banks recently convicted of federal crimes from being frozen out of the lucrative market.

HUD’s action is the latest in a series of steps by federal agencies to eliminate real-world consequences for serial financial felons, even as the Obama administration has touted its efforts to hold banks accountable.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is utterly no accountability in the US government, at any level, whatsoever; what we have is a toxic, incestuous relationship between large corporations, and the politicians they buy. It is just that simple.

We are no more a government "of the people, by the people and for the people; this country has devolved to a government "of the corporations, by the corporations, and for the corporations.

Greece Surrendered: But to Whom Exactly?

On July 12, Greece surrendered abjectly and totally. Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, who had promised to combat the austerity measure that are driving the Greek people to ruin, poverty and suicide, betrayed all his promises, denied the will of the people expressed in the July 5 referendum, and led the Greek parliament to accept an agreement with the nation’s creditors even worse than all those that had already caused the economy to shrink and which further abandoned the last scraps of national sovereignty.

NZ Government's fingers in the wrong pie

This week the big news has been an inescapable revelation that a hands-off approach to foreign investment in our residential property market has had the predictable result of amplifying inequality.

In this case, the wealthy of Auckland are able to sell their properties to the wealthy of other countries - a cycle that has inevitably locked people in the largely low-wage New Zealand economy right out of the picture.

For those of us who believe one of the Government's primary roles is to ensure its citizens are able to access reasonably priced, warm and safe housing, this has been a monumental fail. But the evidence has been there all along, although rather less visible. State housing is now the focal point of a brand new experimental process that may or may not manage to house the most needy in the city. Meanwhile, some live in garages and mobile lockers with little to no heating.

Appeal Court orders Attorney-General to issue new directions on sending Dotcom's devices to US

The Court of Appeal has ordered the Attorney-General to issue new directions to the New Zealand police in order to send cloned devices seized from internet entrepreneur Kim Dotcom to US authorities, although it's likely to be opposed by the internet entrepreneur.

In a decision released today, Justices Douglas White, Tony Randerson and Lynton Stevens set aside earlier High Court rulings, essentially allowing the Attorney-General to issue new directives to police under the Mutual Assistance in Criminal Matters Act, enabling the remaining seized devices be sent to the US.

Inquiry needed into police search and seizure conduct (NZ)

This week the High Court at Wellington has been hearing a challenge to the lawfulness of the police's conduct in procuring a search warrant and then conducting a search of Nicky Hager's house.

The allegation (as yet unproven) is that police misled the judge who issued the warrant, breached Hager's rights during the search, and then breached undertakings about what they would do with any items seized during the search.

The outcome is still to be determined, but it seems to be the latest example in a rising tide of cases in which the police and Crown prosecutors have been challenged in respect of the execution of search warrants and the conduct of criminal investigations and prosecutions.

Other high-profile examples include the Red Devils case in Nelson, the John Banks case and the Kim Dotcom raid. In each of those cases, the courts have been critical of the conduct of police or prosecutors, to varying extents.

Truth finally told after six-year ordeal

Brett Donaldson was labelled a fraudster but after six years he has won his fight with the Serious Fraud Office, which has been banned from prosecuting him again, reports Phil Taylor.

Brett Donaldson is grateful and angry. "I'm pissed off with the SFO but grateful that justice is alive and kicking. I had to fight to get there but eventually the system worked."

He is sick of courts but made one more application this month - to lift his name suppression so he could tell the story of how he lost his shirt to fraud and ended up being charged as a co-conspirator.

Donaldson, 53, wants those who looked at him sideways after he was charged in 2011 to know what happened.

His association with Mark Whelan - jailed for four years and four months - left Donaldson bankrupt and with an uphill struggle to overturn his own convictions. He voluntarily did two interviews with the SFO, but told the Weekend Herald he believes the agency had already made up its mind.

The end of FoI? 'Right to know' in peril as Government targets Freedom of Information

The Government’s decision to launch a review of the Freedom of Information Act was widely condemned last night as likely to lead to “more secrecy, more mistakes and bad decisions”.

The unexpected move to set up a review of the law emerged just hours after a FoI request revealed how British pilots were involved in Syrian air strikes – a fact ministers had kept from the public.

Critics argued that a commission was likely to lead to more secrecy – allowing politicians and officials to conceal “bad decisions and mistakes”. They expressed scepticism that the review would be unbiased, given that one of the commissioners, former Labour Foreign Secretary Jack Straw, is an outspoken critic of how the Act is enforced.

Syriza Leader Calls for Pan-European Anti-Austerity Movement

Marina Prentoulis spoke with teleSUR and said support for the Syriza-led government is more important than ever. Marina Prentoulis, spokesperson for Syriza in the U.K., told teleSUR in an exclusive interview Thursday that what is needed is a “pan-European movement” capable of confronting the power of European capital and the neoliberal agenda of European leaders. The Greek parliament voted Thursday in favor of reform measures required by a deal reached between the government of Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and Greece's creditors. Prentoulis argued the Greek government was under extraordinary pressure and that alone there was little it could do to resist the demands of European leaders.

Wolfgang Halbig and Sandy Hook: Trick or Treason?

Among the most curious aspects of the Sandy Hook event (which have puzzled many students)include the presence of a sign saying, "Everyone must check in!", Port-a-Potties, boxes of bottled water and pizza cartons in the Firehouse, name tags on lanyards and parents cheerfully bringing their children to the scene of (what was alleged to be) a child-shooting massacre. Wolfgang and his attorney were able to extract from Newtown First Selectman (which is an office), Patricia Llorda, that the sign had been placed there, not by the city, but by Homeland Security, which drew audible gasps from those who were present:

All of this, of course, is consistent with the FEMA manual for the event, which declares there will be a rehearsal on 13 December 2012, where the event will "go live" on 14 December, where it states (in the manual) that everyone must check in and that refreshments and restrooms will be provided. The reason Wolfgang has been unable to obtain information as innocuous as who had provided the Port-a-Potties is because it would have revealed that they were delivered on 13 December, the day before the alleged shooting, which would have thereby exposed the entire hoax. The FOIA hearings were therefore getting too close to the truth and had to be subverted, which was done by the attorney, Monte Frank, elected to Head the Connecticut Bar, which appears to be his reward for managing the cover-up:

The Chattanooga Event Is a CIA/ISIS False Flag Operation

With regard to this event coinciding with Jade Helm, do you think this makes American soldiers, everywhere, more or less likely to carry out heinous acts against American citizens when ordered to do so, with regard to the Jade Helm drill?

People, in the name of self-preservation will do the unthinkable! I have just suggested one possible motive. And where we see ISIS involvement, the CIA is not far away. No doubt, some will say that the last statement is too conspiratorial. However, let me remind you that I have twice interviewed Scott Bennett and this operation has the CIA’s fingerprints all over it.

ISIS Is Funded By the CIA and Scott Bennett Can Can Prove It: ISIS is funded by the CIA, so says Scott Bennett who was a U.S. Army Special Operations Officer (11th Psychological Operations Battalion, Civil Affairs-Psychological Operations Command), and a global psychological warfare-counterterrorism analyst, formerly with defense contractor Booz Allen Hamilton.

Mr. Morgan (the Bank’s only witness) admitted that all of the money or credit which was used as a consideration was created upon their books, that this was standard banking practice exercised by their bank in combination with the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, another private Bank, further that he knew of no United States Statute or Law that gave the Plaintiff the authority to do this.

So a straightforward simple case with very straightforward allegations. The case was tried to a jury. They found against the bank. Basically finding that the bank WAS NOT ENTITLED TO POSSESSION because it hadn’t given ANY CONSIDERATION (something of tangible value) when it made the mortgage!!

If anything, people are extremely frustrated. That remains underexposed in the media. The frustration comes from the fact that the masses believe they are disadvantaged with the ongoing reforms. People understand they have to contribute (by paying taxes for instance) to fight the crisis, but it has to happen equally: the ones who benefited most during the years of excesses should contribute proportionately more. And that is not happening. Even with this extreme left government led by Syriza, it is simply not happening.

Greece: PM Tsipras Banishing Ministers Opposing Sellout to Creditors, Syriza Sharply Divided

Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis resigned after being pushed out – replaced by Euclid Tsakalotos.

After leaving, he said he’s no longer under “incredible pressure to negotiate for a position I find difficult to defend…”

He cited the “complete lack of any democratic scruples (displayed by) the supposed defenders of Europe’s democracy. (V)ery powerful figures look you in the eye and say ‘(y)ou’re right in what you’re saying, but we’re going to crunch you anyway.”

Paying dominant bankers and large creditors like Germany alone matters – no matter the pain and suffering inflicted on millions of Greeks helpless against the war on their well-being.

Make no mistake. What’s happening in Greece signifies what’s ongoing throughout Europe, America, Canada, and other countries, heading for getting much worse – ending social justice to enrich monied interests more than ever, and at the same time, destroy what remains of democratic rights. Financial tyranny rules!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Tsipras ran on a platform opposed to austerity, backed up by the recent referendum, sold out his party and his people to the money-junkies and is now executing a Stalinist purge against members of his own party still supporting those principles on which Tsipras campaigned!

This is why no politician can be trusted, ever, other than to do what they are paid to do by their masters in the banks.

During the French Revolution, the bankers went to the Guillotine long before King Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette.

That was not merely by chance!

WHY THE US FED GOV JUST CAN NOT SAY NO TO WAR

I urge anyone who reads this to watch the video above called All Wars Are Bankers Wars that will reinforce my stance and opinion into a more digestible understanding of the how and why and greed and inhumanity, as there is far more going on here than I can put into this already over lengthy op-ed and I will now explain why and how we keep the wars going and in doing so make a small cartel of banksters richer… for here is the crux of it all and HERE is an example of exactly how I understand what happens…

Greek riots: Petrol bombs thrown in Athens as Greece votes through austerity reforms - live video stream

The bill fuelled anger in the governing Syriza party and led to a revolt by its members against the prime minister Alexis Tsipras, who has insisted the deal was the best he could do to prevent Greece from catastrophically crashing out of Europe's joint currency.

The vote came after an anti-austerity demonstration by about 12,000 protesters outside parliament degenerated into violence as the debate was getting under way on Wednesday night.

Riot police battled youths who hurled petrol bombs for about an hour before the clashes died down.

Demonstrations are continuing today as Greece seeks urgent relief from European lenders.

Violence in Athens After Painful Bailout Deal Passed

Greece awoke with a political hangover on Thursday after parliament approved a stringent bailout program, thanks to the votes of the pro-European opposition, amid the worst protest violence this year.

The vote, vital to unlocking emergency financing from European partners as early as Thursday, left Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras weakened by a revolt in his leftist Syriza party but clinging to power for now.

Zionists Use Donald Trump to Fix Another Election

by Henry Makow Ph.D.

Like a turd that won't flush, Donald Trump is back again to serve his Illuminati Jewish masters. This time around, his role is to win the GOP nomination and throw the election to Hillary Clinton, the Illuminati bankers' preferred candidate.

If this seems farfetched, consider that Trump is allegedly leading the other GOP candidates by a large margin. He catapulted into the lead by pretending to champion ordinary Americans who are fed up with illegal immigration. Calling Mexicans "rapists" is a little extreme but he needed to get attention fast.

Sweet Cakes by Melissa raises record amount of cash on crowdfunding site

Americans are wakin up.They have had it with the so-called homosexual rights movement and put their money where their mouths are!

Supporters of the Oregon bakery Sweet Cakes by Melissa are putting their money where their mouth is.

A crowdfunding campaign for the embattled business has eclipsed $350,000 in little more than two months – a record amount on the Continue to Give site, The Washington Times reports.Jesse Wellhoefer, founder of Continue to Give, said the Sweet Cakes effort has raised more than any previous campaign on behalf of individuals in the three-year-old crowdfunding website's history, the Times said.

Coupled with $109,000 raised through GoFundMe and an undisclosed amount raised through Samaritan's Purse, online donors have contributed upwards of $450,000 to help bakery owners Aaron and Melissa Klein in their legal battle with a state agency that found they discriminated against a lesbian couple when they refused to make them a wedding cake.

ALL WARS ARE BANKERS' WARS!

"Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin. The Bankers own the Earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create deposits, and with the flick of a pen they will create enough deposits to buy it back again. However, take it away from them, and all the fortunes like mine will disappear, and they ought to disappear, for this world would be a happier and better world to live in. But if you wish to remain slaves of the Bankers and pay for the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create deposits." -- Sir Josiah Stamp, President of the Bank of England in the 1920s, the second richest man in Britain

Federal Reserve Spies on France

Following last week's eavesdropping reports, WikiLeaks shared new documents with Libération and Mediapart. This time, the new documents reveal that the NSA was spying on France's best performing companies for economic intelligence purposes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The NSA isn't looking for criminals and terrorists. We already proved the NSA cannot break any codes created by real criminals and terrorists. The NSA is spying on law abiding citizens to steal their business secrets, and if they are doing it to the French, they are doing it to YOU!

Exclusive: U.S. directs agents to cover up program used to investigate Americans

A secretive U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration unit is funneling information from intelligence intercepts, wiretaps, informants and a massive database of telephone records to authorities across the nation to help them launch criminal investigations of Americans.

Although these cases rarely involve national security issues, documents reviewed by Reuters show that law enforcement agents have been directed to conceal how such investigations truly begin - not only from defense lawyers but also sometimes from prosecutors and judges.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So the spying is not about terror, but about finding reasons to prosecute Americans, all in defiance of the Fourth Amendment!

Wisconsin governor strips workers’ wage protections

With the stroke of a pen, Wisconsin’s governor passed a two-year spending bill which also strikes down a key wage protection law. The prevailing wage law ensured government contract workers were paid comparable rates in any given industry.

“With this budget, taxpayers come first,” said Republican Governor Scott Walker announcing the passage of his $72.7 billion biennial budget.

Israelis share photos of children demanding death to “terrorists”

Though Israel already has a death penalty option on the books, a death sentence hasn’t been carried out since the hanging of Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann in 1962. The true purpose of the bill was not the death penalty, it was racist incitement catering to the right-wing chauvinism surging through the Israeli Jewish public after reaching its peak during last summer’s brutal assault on Gaza.

Totalitarian medicine: Medical boards threaten to destroy careers of doctors who question Big Pharma propaganda

The American Medical Association (AMA) is upping the ante in pursuit of total control over the medical industry. Outraged that acclaimed physicians like Dr. Mehmet Oz of The Dr. Oz Show would dare to speak on national television about issues that go untouched by many conventional doctors, the AMA has proposed new "ethical and professional guidelines" for physicians that threaten to censor doctors who deviate from what the AMA deems as medical gospel.

Jewish groups condemn 49ers running back for his tweets

A tweet by 49ers returner and running back Jarryd Hayne drew the attention of the Anti-Defamation League. Hayne, an Australian attempting to make a conversion from rugby to the NFL, tweeted that Jews killed Jesus. ADL, in a press release, noted that the tweet appeared July 1st and has since been rescinded.

“Jesus wanted to help people but was killed by his own people,” the ADL quoted Hayne writing. When challenged by a fan on twitter, Hayne then wrote, “The Jews were the people who took him to the Romans n forced them to give the order because they couldn’t.”

Europe a step closer to keeping records on all passengers flying in and out of the Continent

The European Parliament's civil liberties committee LIBE voted on Wednesday in favor of collecting and storing information about all air passengers traveling into or out of the EU.

The so-called Passenger Name Record (PNR) scheme requires the storage of all data collected by airlines about passengers – including sensitive and personal information such as email addresses, credit card details, phone numbers, and meal choices (halal, kosher, etc) – for use by security agencies. The committee approved the scheme by 32 votes to 27, and also agreed to start negotiations with national ministers with a view to agreeing on a new law by the end of the year.

However, civil rights groups have been outraged at some of the proposals, particularly after the European Court of Justice (ECJ) ruled [PDF] the old Data Retention Directive illegal and disproportionate in April last year.

California Enacts Vaccine Law That Forces Parents to Choose Between Human Rights and Civil Rights

From flash to bang, it took the politically powerful corporate, medical trade, and government lobbyists just six months this year to gut the human right to informed consent to medical risk taking and the civil right to a school education in California.

They did it by enacting a new law (SB 277) signed by Governor Jerry Brown on June 29, 2015 that denies parents the legal right to file a personal belief exemption to vaccination for religious and conscientious beliefs so their children can attend school.

In order to sign the bill into law, Governor Brown had to abandon his long-standing legislative record as a champion of parental and religious rights and school education.

BREAKING: Greek Parliament Passes 3rd Bailout Agreement; Tsipras Successful in Securing Cross-Party Votes

The controversial third bailout agreement that was negotiated and agreed to– by force, according to Greek prime minister Alexis Tsipras– was passed in the Greek parliament following a tense debate and all-night vote. The deal includes tough reforms and unpopular measures that European creditors have imposed on the people of Greece.

There will be a run on pitchforks, kerosene, and hemp rope in the Greek hardware stores, I think.

Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland engineered Ukraine’s “regime change” in early 2014 without weighing the likely chaos and consequences. Now, as neo-Nazis turn their guns on the government, it’s hard to see how anyone can clean up the mess that Nuland made, writes Robert Parry.

Wherever Nuland goes, chaos and suffering follow.

Obamacare Was Supposed To Kill Medicare Advantage. It Only Made It Stronger.

Critics immediately seized on the merry-go-round of Washington — how another top White House official has found a job with the lobbyists she used to negotiate with.

“Is there a revolving-door emoji?” NPR’s Jacob Goldstein ruefully tweeted.

But I think there’s a very telling line, buried near the bottom of the Times‘ 798-word story.

“Asked about her priorities, Mr. Tavenner said she wanted to protect Medicare Advantage, the program under which private insurers manage care for more than 30 percent of the 55 million beneficiaries of Medicare.”

There’s a reason why private insurers care so much about Medicare Advantage: It’s arguably their hottest market right now.

Hillary Clinton's Refusal to Reinstate Glass-Stegall

Hillary Clinton won’t propose reinstating a bank break-up law known as the Glass-Steagall Act – at least according to Alan Blinder, an economist who has been advising Clinton’s campaign. “You’re not going to see Glass-Steagall,” Blinder said after her economic speech Monday in which she failed to mention it. Blinder said he had spoken to Clinton directly about Glass-Steagall.

This is a big mistake.

It’s a mistake politically because people who believe Hillary Clinton is still too close to Wall Street will not be reassured by her position on Glass-Steagall. Many will recall that her husband led the way to repealing Glass Steagall in 1999 at the request of the big Wall Street banks.

It’s a big mistake economically because the repeal of Glass-Steagall led directly to the 2008 Wall Street crash, and without it we’re in danger of another one.
