Elite’s War on Free Speech, Free Press, Free Internet and the Truth

By Joachim Hagopian
October 22, 2016
“A populace deprived of the ability to separate lies from truth, is no longer capable of sustaining a free society.”

Journalist Chris Hedges

As the ruling elite pushes its rigged election, forcibly cramming crime boss Hillary down our gullets against the people’s choice or will, so goes suppression of information rapidly shutting off the truth spigot, leaving Americans high and dry, starved of honesty by their oligarchic owned and controlled crime cabal government. Signs that the globalists are panicking are visible every day as they aggressively provoke World War III timed with the collapse of their morally and financially bankrupted global economy. And with two-thirds of Americans living from paycheck to paycheck, the future does not look bright.

The Ruling Elite Has Lost the Consent of the Governed

Brimming with hubris and self-importance, the ruling Elite and mainstream media cannot believe they have lost the consent of the governed.
Every ruling Elite needs the consent of the governed: even autocracies, dictatorships and corporatocracies ultimately rule with the consent, however grudging, of the governed.
The American ruling Elite has lost the consent of the governed. This reality is being masked by the mainstream media, mouthpiece of the ruling class, which is ceaselessly promoting two false narratives:

The betting pattern that signals a Trump presidency isn't as remote as the world thinks

The bookies know!

William Hill slashes odds on Trump victory amid betting patterns eerily reminiscent of those seen in the lead up to the EU referendum

It is news that will strike fear into the hearts of perhaps half of America and large chunks of the world outside of it.

Despite a calamitous week of campaigning, betting markets on the US election are almost a mirror image of those on Britain’s EU referendum at this stage. And they could be pointing to a victory for Donald Trump.

The cost of downgrading

by Thierry Meyssan
Washington is attempting to hold to its positions without having to start a Third World War, but it looks like an impossible task. Moscow is offering the United States a safe exit in Syria and Yemen. But if they should choose this option, they would be obliged to abandon some of their allies.

Rise of the Alpha Return of the Tribe

As the dust settles and our corporate/marxist super state and it’s mandates are left to the dustbins of history those tribes will find common ground. But only so long as they are left to their own devices and only so long as there are good, honorable and strong men to shine the light. The irony being, that in order to save classic liberalism and individual liberty we must let the states that were originally born to carry them into the future, fail. Although the body will perish, the spirit can and will survive through the clan and its natural extension – the tribe.

Time to Rescue Millennials, College-Educated Voters From College Debt

This is kick ass!

Young Americans of the millennial generation and others with college degrees need urgent relief from the $1.3 trillion in accumulated tuition debt they owe, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said at a campaign rally in Columbus, Ohio.

"We [are going to] lower the cost of college and solve the tuition debt crisis… We are going to work [it] out."

Trump vowed that if elected to be the next US president he would threaten to remove tax exemption from wealthy endowments enjoyed by many US educational institutions if colleges did not use that wealth to cut their tuition costs.

Russkies at the Doorstep

In a year noted for crude political discourse, eagerly serialized in the mainstream media, the MSM are themselves bellowing anti-Russian rhetoric, conspiracy theory, and fear-mongering. Of the two “evil of two lessers” contenders, Trump is the one who regularly gets hammered, justifiably in the case of his anti-Muslim and other racist and sexist slurs, while Clinton gets a pass, even an A+, for her repeated verbal assaults on Russia and its president, even as she reeks of class hostility toward Trump supporters.

During the McCarthy era, the most perverse propaganda was about Russians hiding under beds; during the new cold war, it’s about Russians inside every telephone, computer, email, and website, while linking Putin to everything, says Guardian contributor Trevor Timm, “from Brexit, Jeremy Corbyn, Greece, and Spain.”

BEXALERT: UPI/CVoter poll: Hillary Clinton pulls into 5-point lead over Donald Trump

Misleading headline. The debate hasn't been factored in and half the story is Trump's 2005 vid. This is a left wing joke disguised as a poll. The article is almost funny! And it's an online poll with no known margin of error. Who writes this trash!

The UPI/CVoter daily presidential tracking poll for Monday shows Hillary Clinton pulling into a lead over Donald Trump of more than 5 percentage points.

The online poll shows Clinton up 49.92 percent to 44.39 percent.

Because the poll is conducted online and individuals self-select to participate, a margin of error cannot be calculated.

“Podiumgate”: How the Clintons Rigged the First Presidential Debate

Before a big Heavyweight title fight the seconds for each fighter watch the opposing fighters hands taped and gloved to prevent somebody putting a railroad spike in the glove. Trump need to have his seconds go over to Hillary's podium and examine it and pull out her little prompter and they need to check her ears.

The Clintons will break all rules and laws to seize White House power. This is amply proven by the manner in which they rigged and stole the first presidential debate.

The operation appears to have been planned in advance of the September 26, 2016 event, involving the Clintons and their operatives, the debate organizers, the broadcast media (NBC and “moderator” Lester Holt), the managers of the venue, and the security detail at the facility.

The rig was carried out with near-military precision.

It began with the building of a special podium for Hillary Clinton: one that was smaller than the podium designated for Donald Trump.

Family Radio Service

The Family Radio Service, or FRS, is an unlicensed, simplex only, personal radio service in the US covered by Part 95 of the FCC's regulations. Hand-held FRS transceivers with a maximum output of 500 mW are typically used by families, children, and campers to communicate. Shopping malls, theme parks, and special events are all great locations to monitor FRS communications. Radios may not have external antennas or power amplifiers attached to them (See 47 CFR 95.194c).
GMRS users may also communicate with FRS users, and among each other, on the lower 7 channels in the 462 MHz range, with a maximum of 5 watts ERP on those channels.

A crystal radio is the distilled essence of a radio. It has very few parts, it needs no batteries or other power source, and it can be built in a short time out of things you can find around the house.

The reason a crystal radio does not need any batteries is the amazing capabilities of the human ear. The ear is extremely sensitive to very faint sounds. The crystal radio uses only the energy of the radio waves sent by radio transmitters.

An Obsolescent Military: Bombing Everything, Gaining Nothing

What, precisely, is the US military for, and what, precisely, can it do? In practical terms, how powerful is it? On paper, it is formidable, huge, with carrier battle groups, advanced technology, remarkable submarines, satellites, and so on. What does this translate to?

The American military is an upgraded World War II military, designed to fight other militaries like itself in a world like that which existed during World War II. The Soviet Union was that kind of military. Today there are no such militaries for America to fight. We are not in the same world. Washington seems not to have noticed.

"I'm not running to be president of the world, I'm running to be president of the United States," Trump said during a rally in Kenansville, N.C. "Hillary Clinton is the vessel for all of the global, special interests seeking to run our government and our lives."

Trump argued that unlike him, Clinton fails to prioritize the needs of U.S. citizens, specifically on issues like trade and immigration.

- A day before the airstrikes, the [US] drones were flying and scanning all the area

- The US air-strikes destroyed all our equipment and defense points.

?- IS fighters attacked us immediately after and during the US strikes. Some of them were laughing

?- US drones and helicopters opened fire from machine guns on our retreated forces?

- It for sure wasn’t a mistake, they targeted us intentionally to help IS.

Just as the US admitted shortly after the so-called “Arab Spring” began spreading chaos across the Middle East that it had fully funded, trained, and equipped both mob leaders and heavily armed terrorists years in advance, it is now admitted that the US State Department through a myriad of organizations and NGOs is behind the so-called “Occupy Central” protests in Hong Kong.

Without an ounce of doubt in my mind, Abraham Lincoln is America’s absolute worst President. He did not free a single slave; but what he did do was begin the process of enslaving free men. It is no hyperbole to say that Lincoln truly governed as a dictator, not as a President.

China forces Barack Obama to emerge from Air Force One's 'ass' in sharp diplomatic snub

This headline doesn't mislead! Great headline!

US President Barack Obama, often heralded as the world's most powerful leader, was forced to go out of Air Force One's "ass" when his plane landed in China in what has been regarded as a sharp and calculated diplomatic snub by Beijing.

Conspicuously, there was also no red-carpet welcome for the US president at the tarmac unlike in the case of most other leaders including Russia President Vladimir Putin, Prime Minister Theresa May, South Korean President Park Geun-hye and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. All the leaders are in the eastern Chinese city of Hangzhou for the G20 summit.

Obama's unusual exit and the less-than-graceful welcome were shortly followed by a verbal encounter between the American press corps and Chinese security officials. The US National Security Adviser, Susan Rice,

Misleading headline! This reflects on Obama and his NWO policies.He also managed to insult the Brits today. This "man"is bringing America into total disrepute. Does anybody in the District of Criminals even care?

In a series of heated disputes that nearly led to blows, Chinese officials harassed foreign reporters and embarrassed U.S. President Barack Obama from the first moments of his arrival.

Other leaders, including President Shinzo Abe of rival Japan, walked off their airplanes onto red carpet-draped steps. Mr. Obama emerged from an auxiliary exit in the bowels of his plane, as Chinese officials then tried to bar the travelling press corps from watching and blocked U.S. national security adviser Susan Rice. “This is our country. This is our airport,” one official said in withering explanation.

BEXALERT: G20 ‘staircase snub’ for Obama was United States’ decision, reveals Chinese official

This is really funny.Notice that the Chinese official isn't named!

It was Washington’s decision to have US President Barack Obama disembark from his plane through a small bare metal stairway instead of the usual rolling red-carpet staircase that state leaders get, a Chinese foreign ministry official has revealed.
Speculation has been flying about whether China was deliberately snubbing Obama since media reports on Saturday showed the US leader exiting the Air Force One through the small stairway.

On Sunday, Obama told reporters that the significance of a row between US and Chinese officials on the airport tarmac upon his arrival should not be overblown.
“I wouldn’t overcrank the significance” of tensions at the airport, Obama said later on Sunday, according to Reuters.

Trump vs. Hillary: A Summation

The US presidential election this November will tell whether a majority of the US population is irredeemably stupid. If voters elect Hillary, we will know that Americans are stupid beyond redemption.

All we know about Trump is that the oligarchs, who sent America’s jobs overseas, who flooded the country with difficult-to-assimilate immigrants, who destroyed public education, who bailed out Wall Street and the “banks too big to fail,” who sacrificed American homeowners and retirees living on a fixed income, who intend to privatize both Social Security and Medicare, who have given the public killer cops, relentless violations of privacy, the largest prison population in the world, and destroyed the US Constitution in order to increase executive power over the American people, are violently opposed to Trump. This opposition should tell us that Trump is the person we want in the Oval Office.

4-minute comedy: War on Terror causes terror so you have more war. Is America ‘too far gone?’ ‘It’s not normal. What have you done? You should be ashamed of yourselves. You should stop it!’

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

Steve Hughes’ 4-minutes:

Real-world Earth is a tragic-comedy that includes lie-started and Orwellian-illegal Wars of Aggression, including “War on Terror” and OIL (Operation Iraqi Liberation).

Steve makes obvious points:

War is terror, which causes more of what the US claims to be warring against.
Terror is not an enemy. Will terror surrender to end the war?
Corporate media report distractions, not news.
Such a condition: “It’s not normal. What have you done (about it)? You should be ashamed of yourselves. You should stop it!”

Jon Stewart praises Larry Wilmore on last ‘Nightly Show’: ‘Do not confuse cancellation with failure’

Jon Stewart began his appearance on the last episode of The Nightly Show by telling the departing host, Larry Wilmore, “I just decided to stop by and tell you I love you.”

But that isn’t the only reason he stopped by.

Stewart continued, “And may i say something else? Do not confuse cancellation with failure.”

“What you, my friend, were tasked to do, you have done and done beautifully. You gave voice to under-served voices in the media arena …it was a show that was raw and poignant and funny and smart and all those things. And you did it.”

After acknowledging the talents of The Nightly Show’s correspondents, writers and crew, Stewart continued.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I watched this last episode, and Wilmore, and his team of writers and performers, carried themselves like true champions.

There are many things about which Wilmore and I agreed to disagree; but at the end of the day, he is a brilliant, funny guy with a capacity for stretching some needed conversations about race and gender in this country in some interesting directions.

That being said, his unending hatred of Donald Trump, coupled with his unswerving allegiance to Hillary Clinton,no matter what she has done (like taking contributions for the Clinton Foundation from North African and Middle Eastern countries which chemically castrate, jail, and execute its LGBT members, and still permit the barbaric practice of female genital mutilation) did sour me on the show.

And if I was able to do the due dilligence and make the link, why could Clinton, with her vast informational resources, not be able to make the connection, and know what was going on here, and refuse to take the money the Clinton Foundation took from these countries which still allow these practices, on moral grounds?!?

Not wanting to see that certain facts do, in fact, exist, including the Clintons being part of the Narcocracy Dynasty, unfortunately, does not make those facts go away.

New Treatment for Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis

Crohn's disease and a whole host of other chronic disorders we suffer are due to neurotransmitter imbalance. They have discovered genetic markers for Crohn's which cause the imbalance. People with Scandanavian and Ashkenazi Jewish genes carry the defective genes. I gotta double whammy.

There is a known genetic defect of neurotransmitter transporters (OCTN1/OCTN2) in the gastrointestinal tract of IBD patients.1 OCTN1 and OCTN2 are responsible for the transport of dopamine and serotonin. Because these transporters are defective, serotonin levels are too high causing serotonin toxicity, tissue damage, and the generation of symptoms.2,3

Yes! The System Is Rigged!

If 2016 taught us anything, it is that if the establishment’s hegemony is imperiled, it will come together in ferocious solidarity — for the preservation of their perks, privileges, and power.All the elements of that establishment — corporate, cultural, political, media — are today issuing an ultimatum to Middle America:Trump is unacceptable.

You want Trump out? How do we get you out?
But if Hillary Clinton takes power, and continues America on her present course, which a majority of Americans rejected in the primaries, there is going to a bad moon rising.

Hillary, Trump, and War with Russia: The Goddamdest Stupid Idea I Have Ever Heard, and I Have Lived in Washington

A good reason to vote for Trump, a very good reason whatever his other intentions, is that he does not want a war with Russia. Hillary and her elite ventriloquists threaten just that. Note the anti-Russian hysteria coming from her and her remoras.

Such a war would be yet another example of the utter control of America by rich insiders. No normal American has anything at all to gain by such a war. And no normal American has the slightest influence over whether such a war takes place, except by voting for Trump. The military has become entirely the plaything of unaccountable elites.

A martial principle of great wisdom says that military stupidity comes in three grades: Ordinarily stupid; really, really, really stupid; and fighting Russia. Think Charles XII at Poltava, Napoleon after Borodino, Adolf and Kursk.

Metallica Don't Tread on Me with lyrics

Liberty or death, what we so proudly hail
Once you provoke her, rattling of her tail
Never begins it, never, but once engaged
Never surrenders, showing the fangs of rage
Don't tread on me
So be it
Threaten no more
To secure peace is to prepare for war
So be it
Settle the score
Touch me again for the words that you'll hear evermore
Don't tread on me

BEX TRASH ALERT! Donald Trump Gets AIDS In A New Movie, And That Has Studio Execs In A Panic

Huffpo has advocated the assassination of Donald Trump. I hope the place gets closed down and the editors arrested. Huffpo sees nothing wrong with getting rid of the 2nd amendment. They have abused the first horribly!

Audiences at screenings around the world, and some even in the United States, have been cheering and applauding a macabre scene in a new film by Sacha Baron Cohen in which “Donald Trump” accidentally contracts HIV.

“The Brothers Grimsby“ opens March 11 in the U.S., though chances are you’re learning that for the first time here, given a decision by Sony Pictures to limit its marketing of the satiric comedy. The studio is concerned about the reaction from the real Donald Trump, according to industry sources familiar with the situation.

The Right includes: conservatives, reactionaries, monarchists, nationalists and fascists.

SLAVERY is on both ends of the spectrum.

General David Shoup

After Kennedy was murdered they got rid of General Shoup. One of the greatest US Marines in the history of the Corps.

It has been said that "Old men start wars and young men fight them." To the extent that foreign policies are developed by politicians and then enforced by men and women of the military this is certainly true.

Such dissent is not specific to the young; in every war a small minority in older generations has risen in opposition to war as well.

"I believe that if we had and would keep our dirty, bloody, dollar-crocked fingers out of the business of these nations so full of depressed, exploited people, they will arrive at a solution of their own. That they design and want. That they fight and work for."

Donald Trump’s Trade Speech: Clinton ‘Worships Globalism over Americanism’

Now you are speakin my language!

Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump spoke in Monessen, Pennsylvania on Tuesday afternoon, differentiating his trade policy of an independent America from presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s record on trade and globalization.
“Our politicians have aggressively pursued a policy of globalization — moving our jobs, our wealth, and our factories to Mexico and overseas,” Trump declared. “Globalization has made the financial elite who donate to politicians very wealthy. But it has left millions of our workers with nothing but poverty and heartache.”

Motivational speaker Robbins' coal walk burns more than 30


DALLAS (AP) — More than 30 people who attended an event with motivational speaker Tony Robbins have been treated for burns after Robbins encouraged them to walk on hot coals as a way of conquering their fears, Dallas fire officials said.

Five people were taken to a hospital Thursday night, while the rest were treated at the scene for burns to their feet and lower extremities, Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Jason Evans said.

The hot coals were spread outside the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center as part of a four-day Robbins seminar called "Unleash the Power Within."

The Assault | The Battle of Stalingrad (1 of 3)

"The Eastern Front experienced the viciousness of war on a scale of unimaginable horror and brutality. The bloodiest and most savage fighting took place in Stalingrad between August 1942 and February 1943. Stalin's city on the Volga had military significance for Hitler. It carried the name of his enemy and therefore had to be destroyed. The ensuing battle sealed the fates of hundreds of thousands of soldiers and civilians and marked the turning point of World War II. It was the beginning of the end for Nazi Germany.

Filmed from both the German and Russian perspective, the series contains footage shot by soldiers during the siege. The Russian archives opened their doors to the filmmakers, granting them exclusive access to previously unreleased material.

Big Trick Hybrid Op at Orlando or just another Sandy Hoax?

Some of these events have plenty of real dead people. Some of these events are totally staged with no dead people. And some are hybrids with real dead people and staged events all rolled into one to keep everybody utterly confused!

Could it be that the KM/EH deployed a new hybrid form of false-flag, one that used both really dead victims and really stupid obvious crisis actors and staged phony victims afterwards? Could it be that they figured they could set a big trap and later release actual photos and autopsies and death certificates on some real victims?

A hybrid false-flag with both some real dead victims and some stupid looking phony crisis actors to provide the appearance that the whole op was virtual only with no dead, would serve a very big trick, if it could be sold both ways — First as a phony op to the researchers, and later as a real op to everyone by releasing real incontrovertible evidence later of actual dead victims.

In Defense of Self-Defense

Most of the mass killings by gun in the United States in recent years—Columbine, Virginia Tech, Aurora, Newtown, Charleston, San Bernardino, and now Orlando—took place in venues where local or state law prohibited carrying guns, even by those lawfully licensed to do so. The government cheerfully calls these venues "gun-free zones." They should be called killing zones.

As unspeakable and horrific as is the recent slaughter in Orlando, it has become just another example of the tragic consequences of government's interfering with the exercise of fundamental liberties. After a while, these events cease to shock; but they should not cease to cause us to re-examine what the government has done to us.

Authoritarian Control and Mass Murder In America The Hegelian Dialectic Way

This article will demonstrate how New World Order globalists and their neocon puppets in Washington have consistently employed this repeating cycle of the Hegelian Dialectic consisting of the problem (originally called thesis), reaction (anti-thesis) and solution (synthesis) during this century’s federal governmental domestic policies. Inasmuch as US Empire virtually controls all Western nations as well as nearly all Third World nations, this insidious undemocratic process is unfolding globally on the geopolitical chessboard with the ultimate objective of establishing one world government tyranny.

This endless do-loop application stateside will be analyzed to demonstrate how the feds have amplified and concocted a “homegrown” enemy of radicalized violent extremists to intentionally include millions of non-violent, law abiding US citizens as the identified problem.

PAK 40 German 75mm anti tank gun.

Published on Jun 22, 2014
This gun is a beast! As you can see the muzzle blast is incredible. The WWII German PAK (PanzerAbwehrKanone) 40 was developed in early WWII but didn't see widespread production until about 1941. The gun was often used by allied forces whenever they would over run German positions which shows the effectiveness of the gun.
This gun was resurrected from an art museum where the owner had painted it pink! It was restored to working order and the federal paperwork required to build and possess this gun was obtained. It is not legal for an ordinary citizen to have a working field piece like this.

As It Shapes ISIS-Centric Narrative, Orlando Police Reject Freedom of Information Request for Audio of Nightclub Shooter’s 911 Call

Hours after Omar Mateen opened fire in the LGBTQ Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, the Orlando Police Department informed the media that Mateen had sworn allegiance to ISIS in a call to its 911 emergency line.

According to FBI officials, Mateen previously pledged simultaneous allegiance to Al Qaeda and Hezbollah, two militant groups fighting on opposite sides of the Syrian civil war, and whose members have battled ISIS at various intervals.

On June 13, AlterNet’s Grayzone Project submitted a request under Florida’s public records law for a written transcript and/or an audio recording of any and all phone calls that Mateen made to Orlando’s 911 emergency line on the date of the Pulse Nightclub mass killing.

"One of the most intriguing might-have-beens in American History"

Jefferson's Tardy Constitution
by Jack Lynch

Americans are so accustomed to associating Thomas Jefferson with the nation's founding documents that they easily overlook that he played no hands-on role in composing the United States Constitution.

He recorded his first impressions November 13, 1787, in a letter to William S. Smith: "There are very good articles in it: & very bad. I do not know which preponderate."

Disturbing for Jefferson was "the abandonment in every instance of the necessity of rotation in office." Experience had convinced him that, without term limits, every elected official will be "an officer for life." That Constitution's neglect of this problem was for him a nearly fatal flaw.

Who are the Syrian Desert Hawks?

The Syrians have their own proxy army.

In a matter of two years, the Syrian Desert Hawks (var. Liwaa Suqour Al-Sahra) have become one of the most effective fighting forces in the Syrian War; however, very little is known about this paramilitary group.
Often described as a unit from the pro-government “National Defense Forces” (var. NDF), the Desert Hawks actually have no affiliation with the latter or the Syrian Arab Army (SAA).

The man behind the Desert Hawks:
The Desert Hawks were originally started by a retired Syrian Army officer, General Mohammad Jaber, in early 2013.

The Desert Hawks are now leading the charge to the provincial capital of Al-Raqqa, where they are looking to expel the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham before the U.S. backed rebels reach the city.

Beware what you wish for: Russia is ready for war

The bottom line is that Russia – in terms of hypersonic missile development – is about four generations ahead of the US, if we measure it by the development of the S-300, S-400 and S-500 systems. As a working hypothesis, we could describe the next system – already in the drawing boards – as the S-600.

Russian – and Chinese – missiles are already able to knock out the satellite guidance systems for US nuclear tipped ICBMs and cruise missiles. They could also knock out the early alert warnings that the satellite constellations would give. A Russian hypersonic ICBM flight time, launched for instance from a Russian nuclear sub all the way to the US East Coast, counts for less than 20 minutes. So an early warning system is absolutely critical. Don’t count on the worthless THAAD and Patriot to do their job. Once again, Russian hypersonic technology has already rendered the entire missile defense system in both the US and Europe totally obsolete.

Ahead of its time: Doctor Who’s 56 inspiring female scientists

Thee issue of gender equity in science has received a lot of attention recently. Governments are throwing money at it, scientists are speaking up about it and news agencies are reporting on it.

Researchers interested in fictional scientists are also concerned about gender inequality in cinema and television, and its role-modelling impact on aspiring scientists. But things are changing there too.

Our research into scientists and gender in Doctor Who over the past 50 years shows there are many reasons to celebrate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Although TV shows are an area we normally don't cover on this blog, if you have never seen this marvelous BBC sci-fi romp, I commend it to you heartily.

I am a true, died-in-the-wool "Whovian" who first encountered the show in the early 80s on public television in Los Angeles.

Tiny Homes For The Homeless Now Under Attack In California

Isaac Davis, Staff
Waking Times

Personal liberty is under attack in so many areas of American society, and combined with a faltering economy, people are in greater need than ever of finding ways to survive economically while still maintaining basic freedoms.

The tiny house movement is one of the many creative ways in which people are out-smarting the matrix of consumerism and debt. Recently, however, we reported on the federal government’s attempts through the Department of Housing and Urban Development to make owning and living in a tiny home more difficult for those who wish to do so.

Russian Orchestra Gives Stunning Performance In Palmyra Ruins

Russia’s Mariinsky Theatre staged a surprise concert in the amphitheater of the Syrian city of Palmyra on Thursday, in what looked like an attempt by the Kremlin to win hearts and minds and remind the world of its role in the city’s recapture.

The concert, held just over a month after Russian air strikes helped push Islamic State militants out of Palmyra, saw Valery Gergiev, a close associate of President Vladimir Putin, conduct the Mariinsky orchestra.

Sergei Roldugin, a cellist friend of Putin’s named in the Panama Paper leaks as owning a network of offshore firms that have handled billions of dollars, also performed. He has denied any wrongdoing.

Putin, addressing the audience by video link from his Russian Black Sea residence of Sochi, called terrorism a contagion the world needed to rid itself of and said the fact the concert was taking place at all was “surprising.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It would have been nice if the writers of this article, attempting to smear the cellist Sergei Roldugin, happened to mention, instead of demonizing this guy as one of the people named in the Panama Papers, that the loopholes in the laws allowing this need to be fixed.

That having been said, God bless Putin and this orchestra for this performance! Music is the universal language of peace and healing.

These people need to be thoroughly congratulated, not only for their musicianship, but their collective courage in doing the gig in Syria.

That took guts.

Mattis versus Trump

Trump was invited last week by the The National Interest to give his first speech on foreign policy.

To everyone’s surprise – but probably not that of the organisaters - «the Donald» did not have anything to say about his position on various subjects, aimed at satisfying one lobby or another, but instead delivered an analysis of US policy and describing its total overhaul.

He delivered a criticism of neo-conservative ideology, which has held power since the coup d’etat of September 11th 2001.

He continued with an indirect attack on the «military-industrial complex», blaming the general excess of weapons in the world. There was no mistake – for the first time since the assassination of John Kennedy, a presidential candidate was denouncing the omnipotence of the arms manufacturers, who have eaten up almost all of US industry.

Arguing about the problems
of the State
and status quo
to those who are content
and comfortable
with the current conditions
isn’t exactly
the greatest way
to go about
creating change

Satanists are furious that Boehner compared Ted Cruz to the Dark Lord

On Wednesday night, former House Speaker John Boehner bluntly called GOP candidate Ted Cruz “Lucifer in the flesh.”

When asked for his opinion about the Texas senator, Boehner said, “I have Democrat friends and Republican friends. I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life.”

It turns out that the Satanic Temple agrees with Boehner’s sentiments — but they said there’s no way Cruz is the living incarnate of Satan.

Breathtaking Photos Capture Cuba’s Legendary Ballerinas Dancing In The Streets

In Cuba, the ballet is something of a national treasure. The dancers recruited into Alicia Alonso’s storied company Ballet Nacional de Cuba, for example, reportedly make more money than doctors and enjoy a level of fandom reserved only for pop stars in the United States. The Cuban government not only funds ballet training but also subsidizes tickets to ballet performances. Lovers of Cuban dance like to say the adoration and skill is in their DNA.

“You can find anyone in the street here in Havana who can dance as well as most professionals,” Cuba’s Ballet Rakatan choreographer Nilda Guerra told The Guardian.

World famous cartoonist Enzo Apicella and Jazz star Gilad Atzmon have given birth to a new truth-telling satirical book. This book is funny, brutal, ludicrous and occasionally sad.

A to Zion - The definitive Israeli Lexicon is a fictitious alphabetic satirical lexicon. A is for Anti-Semites and for Arabs, B is for BBC and Britain, and so on for the entire alphabet. This book is for everyone.

It contains important and eye-opening definitions like:
Bar Mitzvah – the moment when the male Jew accepts that his foreskin is not going to grow back
Canaan – the land of milking money
Catch 22 – free ham
Jewish mother – Just like a Jewish father but with balls
Water – is vital for all known forms of life except Palestinians

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Gilad's book is very funny. Please try to get to the opening if you are in New York, and buy his book to support his peace activism.

Israel puts poet under house arrest

Dareen Tatour has long dreamed of seeing her poems translated from Arabic into other languages — so that they reach people across the world.

One of her poems has indeed been translated recently, but not in the way she had hoped.

A Hebrew version of “Resist, my people, resist them” was read aloud by an Israeli police officer at a Nazareth court hearing on 13 April. Tatour has been charged with incitement to violence based on the contents of that poem, the Arabic original of which is available on YouTube.

Although the poem urges resistance to Israel, it does not call for specific acts of violence. Rather, it draws attention to violent attacks on Palestinians by Israelis.

'A Heavy Penalty...for Making Money' - 50th Anniversary of the Beatles Classic 'Taxman'

2016 marks the 50th anniversary of "Taxman," the classic Beatles song protesting high taxes.

The song was written by George Harrison and released in 1966 on the album "Revolver." In "The Beatles Anthology" documentary, Harrison explains the origin of the song: “In those days we paid 19 shillings and sixpence [96p] out of every pound, and with supertax and surtax and tax-tax it was ridiculous - a heavy penalty to pay for making money. That was a big turn-off for Britain. Anybody who ever made any money moved to America or somewhere else.”
