SHOCK: Amnesty International Blasts Kellogg’s for Using Child Labor-Produced Ingredients

The new report, “The Great Palm Oil Scandal,” released Wednesday, “investigates labour exploitation on plantations in Indonesia that provide palm oil to Wilmar, which is the world’s largest processor and merchandiser of palm and lauric (palm kernel) oils and controls over 43% of the global palm oil trade.”

Wilmar provides palm oil to Kellogg’s and other producers of consumer goods.

The report states:

Amnesty International found serious human rights abuses on the plantations of Wilmar and its suppliers. These included forced labour and child labour, gender discrimination, as well as exploitative and dangerous working practices that put the health of workers at risk.

To document the use of child labor, Amnesty International interviewed workers, including several children. It concludes:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This isn't the only "image problem' Kellogg is facing right now.

Current scientific reports indicate that its foods are laced with glyphosate, a known carcinogen:

There is a good reason that Kellogg’s spent over $1,012,552 on media propaganda in California & Washington to defeat voter ballot initiatives that would have required the labeling of GMO foods, and now are contributing again to the defeat of labeling initiatives in Oregon (contributing $250,000).

A consumer recently sent a box of Froot Loops to a lab for genetic testing and found that the corn and soy used in the cereal are 100% RoundUp Ready GMO. So is the sugar. Never mind the other toxic ingredients in the cereal. This means that in one box of Kellogg’s cereal (and likely all their cereals contain similar GMO products), you are dining on a double dose of glyphosate and Bt toxins – glyphosate being patented as an ‘antibiotic’ by Monsanto in 2011.

Kellogg’s has been making cereal since 1898, but I seriously doubt its founders ever thought it would be poisoning the world at breakfast every morning.

MODI'S BANK TRANSACTION TAX MAY LEAD TO LARGER CONFLICTS

It now turns out that Modis extremism in not confined to the nationalist bend but includes some crazy economic ideas.

Modi decided to demonetize the country from one day to another. Every bank note valued at over US$7 was taken out of circulation. The rather crazy idea behind this is to move all monetary transactions to some electronic money systems and to then tax each and every transaction. All other kind of taxes would be abolished.

Only a lunatic without any knowledge of actual economic issues can support such a move.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With India and Pakistan on the brink of war over the issue of Kashmir, one would think this might not be the best time to introduce such a draconian change in the way India's economy works.

Potential war with Pakistan, coupled with massive riots over the change in the economic system at home?!?

It is painfully apparent that a number of people in Modi's cabinet suffer from an almost pathological inability to think multiple, concurrent scenarios all the way through to their logical conclusions.

US JUDGES CAN NOW SIGN GLOBAL HACKING WARRANTS

On Thursday, changes to the rules around US search warrants came into effect, meaning that magistrate judges can now authorize the hacking of computers outside of their own district.

Legal experts have described the move as the broadest expansion of extraterritorial surveillance power since the FBI's inception, an agency that has already embarked on international hacking operations. The Department of Justice, meanwhile, has defended the changes, arguing they are crucial for policing crime in an age of anonymization technology such as Tor.

The move centers around Rule 41 of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, which regulates when and under what particular circumstances judges can issues warrants for searches and seizures, including remote searches of suspects’ computers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The problem is, the really bad guys have already encrypted their systems to the point that whatever wizbang software is available to these judges is so far behind the times, that locating real criminals will be difficult, if not impossible, even though magistrate judges now have the power to do so.

Lights, Camera… Covert Action: The Deep Politics of Hollywood

Here we build a prima facae case supporting the idea that Hollywood continues to be a target for infiltration and subversion by a variety of state agencies, in particular the CIA. Academic debates on cinematic propaganda are almost entirely retrospective, and whilst a number of commentators have drawn attention to Hollywood’s longstanding and open relationship with the Pentagon, little of substance has been written about the more clandestine influences working through Hollywood in the post-9/11 world. As such, our work delves into the field of what Peter Dale Scott calls “deep politics”; namely, activities which cannot currently be fully understood due to the covert influence of shadowy power players.

How the US Conceals American Military Combat Casualties in Syria and Iraq

The US Central Command (USCENTCOM) announced the death of an American soldier in Syria last week.

The Real Reasons Why Another American Civil War Is Possible

You have to hand it to the regressive left, when they conjure propaganda they really know how to run with it. When their indoctrination doesn’t take, and the public stops them cold with a wall of skepticism, they don’t give up! No — the little buggers double down and go for broke!

I would point out, however, that this seemingly boundless drive to forsake all logic and reason in the name of ideology is not due to these people being special in their ambition. Rather, they are following a somewhat successful historic model; the model of communism. And by successful, I mean successfully destructive.

The Real Reasons Why Another American Civil War Is Possible


What leftists do not know is that they have always been useful idiots for the global elites, and, they will be thrown in the garbage once the elites are finished with them. I hope that every leftist could watch the following interview with Soviet KGB defector Yuri Bezmenov, in which he examines the process by which free nations are brought to chaos by the elites through the exploitation of the regressive left in order to establish a totalitarian system.

I leave you with this thought — civil war is unavoidable. The left is too crazy, and the right has now been given the weapon of government too enticing to overlook. Consider for a moment which “faction” in the world benefits most from this arrangement and then you will understand that the left is ultimately a distraction from the greater enemy. Remove the globalists from the picture, and the left will sort itself out.

One Year Ago Today, Cops Who Killed Idaho Rancher Jack Yantis Were Outed On WRH!

After two deputies slaughtered 62-year-old Idaho Rancher Jack Yantis on Nov. 1, 2015, the sheriff and corporate media had refused to name Jack's killers because they were allegedly "afraid for the deputie's safety." This wasn't right, so with the help of some locals, I published their identies. Mike Rivero 'front-paged' the story at WhatReallyHappened.com and within hours the expose had gone mega-viral and the TV news and newspapers, who already knew damn well who the killers were but were too GUTLESS to publish it, were forced to follow suit. Zollman held a press conference that evening with his tail between his legs and a 180 degree coincidental change of heart, and he was (forced) to name KILLERS BRIAN WOOD AND CODY ROLAND, since at that point the whole world knew. This was a great day for the independent media and for 'Justice for Jack.'

Phoenix AZ- Camelback Christmas Tree vandalism or Park Rangers at their SCROOGIEST coverup?

Why a Christmas tree hikers hauled up Camelback Mountain in Phoenix was removed

Less than 24 hours from when a group of about 50 hikers carried a 15-foot Christmas tree to the summit of Camelback Mountain on the day after Thanksgiving,(with PERMISSION from the Park Rangers) someone cut it in half and stole the top and park rangers removed the bottom half, cutting short an annual tradition beloved by many.

(but is that the truth? Did somebody cut off the top and stole it and Rangers removed the rest or did the rangers remove the whole tree but wanted to not be blamed? Knowing Park Rangers - I think this much more likely.)

Angry Mobs Lock Up Indian Bankers As Cash Chaos Soars: "We Are Fearing The Worst"

India's demonetization campaign is not going as expected.

Overnight, banks played down expectations of a dramatic improvement in currency availability, raising the prospect of queues lengthening as salaries get paid and people look to withdraw money from their accounts the Economic Times reported.

While much of India has become habituated to the sight of people lining up at banks and cash dispensers since the November 8 demonetisation announcement, bank officials said the message from the Reserve Bank of India is that supplies may not get any easier in the near future and that they should push digital transactions. “We had sought a hearing with RBI as we were not allocated enough cash, but we were told that rationing of cash may continue for some time,” said a banker who was present at one of several meetings with central bank officials.

75 Years of Pearl Harbor Lies

On August 18, 1941, Prime Minister Winston Churchill met with his cabinet at 10 Downing Street. The meeting had some similarity to the July 23, 2002, meeting at the same address, the minutes of which became known as the Downing Street Minutes. Both meetings revealed secret U.S. intentions to go to war. In the 1941 meeting, Churchill told his cabinet, according to the minutes: "The President had said he would wage war but not declare it." In addition, "Everything was to be done to force an incident."

Indeed, everything was done to force an incident, and the incident was Pearl Harbor.

The CIA and the Press: When the Washington Post Ran the CIA’s Propaganda Network

ProporNot’s catalogue of supposed Putin-controlled outlets reeks of the McCarthyite smears of the Red Scare era. The blacklist includes some of the most esteemed alternative news sites on the web, including Anti-war.com, Black Agenda Report, Truthdig, Naked Capitalism, Consortium News, Truthout, Lew Rockwell.com, Global Research, Unz.com, Zero Hedge and, yes, CounterPunch, among many others. I’ll have more on Timberg and ProporNot in my Friday column.

In the meantime, here is a brief historical note on how at the height of the Cold War the CIA developed it’s very own stable of writers, editors and publishers (swelling to as many as 3000 individuals) that it paid to scribble Agency propaganda under a program called Operation Mockingbird. The disinformation network was supervised by the late Philip Graham, former publisher of Timberg’s very own paper, the Washington Post.

Don’t let the Atlanticist Integrationists convince you that my exposure as a Russian agent is just a CIA ruse to plant an agent on you. My criticism of Washington’s policy of raising tensions between nuclear powers and support of your policy of reducing tensions is not spy cover. I really do prefer that the world not be blown up in thermo-nuclear war. This is a suspect view in the US, but I hope it is an acceptable one in Russia.

Looking forward to that passport.

Kremlin asks Turkey to explain Erdogan's remark about toppling Assad

The Kremlin said on Wednesday that Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan's statement that his forces in Syria were there to topple President Bashar al-Assad had come as a surprise to Moscow and that it expected an explanation from Ankara.

"The announcement really came as news to us," Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on a conference call.

"It is a very serious statement and one which differs from previous ones and with our understanding of the situation. We hope that our Turkish partners will provide us with some kind of explanation about this."

Bait & Switch- Fake News, PropOrNot, the Real Inform & Influence Operation

A few days before the 2016 election I contacted several publishers and told them they were on a list to be dealt with/ taken down after what was supposed to be a Clinton victory. This effort was against news sites and websites that spoke or wrote against current US policies that Clinton supported. As I was writing this Glen Greenwald’s great article came out specifically about PropOrNot. That plays a small part in this.

Journalists that said or wrote anything damaging to the Clinton campaign or supported her opponents in any way were targeted. News sites and journalists that failed to criticize Vladimir Putin, or worse; they were sympathetic of this or that Russian or Syria policy at any time are on the lists.

CIA Created ISIS — Assange Drops Bombshell on WikiLeaks Release of 500K US Cables

The founder of the transparency organization WikiLeaks released a statement Monday upon the release of over 500,000 diplomatic cables dating back to 1979, which succinctly reveals how the CIA was essentially responsible for creating the Islamic State (ISIS) terror group.

The timing of the release coincided with the sixth anniversary of WikiLeaks “Cablegate” release, which exposed the machinations of the underbelly of the U.S. empire. The latest release, known as the “Carter Cables,” adds 531,525 new diplomatic cables to the WikiLeaks’ already voluminous Public Library of U.S. Diplomacy (PLUSD).

In a statement released in concert with the release of the “Carter Cables,” Julian Assange mapped out how the events of 1979 began a series of events that have ultimately culminated in the rise of ISIS.

Nancy Pelosi Torches Democrat Trying To Unseat Her As Party Leader

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) tore into fellow Democratic Rep. Tim Ryan (Ohio) on Monday for suggesting she can’t lead the party with working-class voters, and called Ryan’s claims that she’s focused on empowering herself within their caucus “almost pathetic.”

Both Pelosi and Ryan are vying for the job of House Democratic leader, whom the caucus will elect on Wednesday. Pelosi has led the party since 2003, and Ryan is making a long-shot bid to unseat her. He’s advocating a major shakeup in leadership and an expanded role for rank-and-file members after Democrats took a drubbing in the elections, due in large part to white working-class voters showing up in droves for President-elect Donald Trump.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How I love to see politicians eating their own, in public!!

But seriously, Ryan is correct, at least in part, on his assessment of why Clinton lost the election, and what the Democrats have to do to become a voice for the voiceless and forgotten.

The other two issues, of course, which Ryan will not touch with a 20 foot poll, is the horrific corruption of the Clinton Cartel, and that smug sense of entitlement which just oozed from every one of Clinton's pores whenever she spoke.

HOW FAKE NEWS SPREADS — CORPORATE MEDIA SPREAD STORY OF ‘ACTIVE SHOOTER’ DURING A KNIFE ATTACK

For all the noise out of the mainstream corporate media about “fake news,” it didn’t take long for a mass knife attack at Ohio State University on Monday morning to morph into widespread reporting of an “active shooter.”

This phenomenon highlights exactly how the “fog of war,” and rush to be the first to report on a story, can result in a story being reported fallaciously. Of course, the narrative sold by the mainstream is that alternative media is unreliable, and thus, corporate media must be relied upon as the standard bearers of “truthful and legitimate” information.

Obviously, this type of wildfire reporting of false information across the whole of mainstream media calls into question the veracity of the reporting and fact checking done by these mainstream outlets that are so quick to call independent news “fake.”

See how that works?

OBAMA’S LEGACY: OBAMACARE FAILURE, DRONE POLICY FAILURE, GUANTANAMO FAILURE, NSA SPYING FAILURE

Gallup’s Daily Obama Approval Rating poll shows Americans view president Obama consistently higher now than at any time since 2009.

His popularity is more of a reflection on Obama being a likable person, than having likable policies. It’s also a reflection on the extreme unpopularity of both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

Likable or not, Obama’s legacy will be one of complete failure. Vox reports The whole Democratic Party is now a smoking pile of rubble.

Vox missed some things, lots of things actually, but the headline is accurate enough.

Everything Obama stood for is about to be undone, except perhaps his drone policy which was a miserable failure and should be undone.

It has been reported that that the number of homeless children in this country has risen by 60 percent since the last recession, and Poverty USA says that a total of 1.6 million children slept either in a homeless shelter or in some other form of emergency housing at some point last year. Yes, the stock market may have been experiencing a temporary boom for the last couple of years, but for those on the low end of the economic scale things have just continued to deteriorate."

I am cautiously optimistic that President Elect Trump will be more of a President for ALL the American people; not just the moneyed; the elite; and the connected.

But only time will tell.

COPS AND CITIZENS WILL BE FORCED TO BUY 'SMART GUNS'

Three private companies, Armatix Smart System, iGun Technology and Kodiak Intelligun have recentlyy developed "smart gun" technology using RFID sensors and biometric sensors.

So why would the feds, spend two decades and millions of dollars trying to develop "smart guns"?

The answer is both disturbing and predictable.

A National Institute of Justice (NIJ) report, noted that the Department of Justice (DOJ) has used $12.6 million in taxpayer money to develop 'smart gun' technology. Most of the funding—approximately $11.1 million—was provided by NIJ itself and the Bureau of Justice Assistance. Fyi, the Feds have been working on 'smart gun' technology for over two decades (see page 5).

DHS is behind 'smart gun' technology

Perhaps the most disturbing thing about 'smart guns' is finding out who's behind it. According to page 12 of the report, DHS and the DOJ have already determined what 'smart gun' requirements will be used.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Such requirements will leave law-abiding, gun-safety conscious citizens defenseless.

But then again, that's the plan.

The city of Chicago is an alleged "gun free zone"; and yet, as reported at www.dnainfo.com on 30 September, 2016:

With September nearly over and three months still left in the year, Chicago has had more than 3,100 shooting victims — 300 more than the number of people shot in all of 2015. There have been 2,588 shooting incidents so far this year resulting in 3,173 people being shot, according to data compiled by DNAinfo from the Chicago Police Department and Illinois State Police. There were 2,327 incidents and 2,843 people shot in all of last year.

The bottom line is, and particularly if you live in a very violent, crowded city, like Chicago, the police cannot protect you: that is simple fact.

So what can the state and Federal governments actually do to turn this around?!?

1. Give all kids a first class education, preparing them for jobs that WILL exist into the 21st century. And forget manual labor; very shortly, robots will be doing most of that. Make sure that they can all speak a standard English before they can graduate from high school.

2. Bring back meaningful jobs, with decent wages, to the inner cities. Crime is born, many times, from desperation, and that desperation has to be addressed.

3. Legalize drugs, to take the profit motive out of it. The war on drugs has been an abject, complete, and highly costly, failure.

When there is no financial incentive for getting people hooked, that market place will implode, and the gangs will have to figure out something else to peddle (hey, how about organic, non-gmo food?!?)

WATER PROTECTOR HIT IN EYE BY TEAR GAS GRENADE AND OTHERS INJURED SUE POLICE

Virginia Dundon, a member of the Navajo Nation and a part of a water protectors’ camp resisting the Dakota Access pipeline since September 11, may never be able to see out of her right eye again. She was hit by a tear gas canister on November 20, when police attacked hundreds of water protectors on Backwater Bridge.

In response to the brutality she suffered, Dundon, along with other water protectors, have filed a lawsuit against Morton County, Morton County Sheriff Kyle Kirschmeier, and other law enforcement agencies responsible for “excessive force” used against water protectors.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let's see...throwing a tear gas directly at someone's eye; shooting someone in the back with a rubber bullet; creating hypothermia so intense that feeling in the victim's hand was lost; shooting someone directly in the vagina with a tear gas grenade: and this was all considered "normal and reasonable" by the Morton County Police?!?

Hitler's Josef Mengele would have LOVED these guys!! They obviously thought they had the right to use torture here, with all the modern accoutrements, when protesters are seriously getting in the way of money to be made!

Turkey entered Syria to end al-Assad’s rule: President Erdo?an

The Turkish military launched its operations in Syria to end the rule of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an said Nov. 29.

“In my estimation, nearly 1 million people have died in Syria. These deaths are still continuing without exception for children, women and men. Where is the United Nations? What is it doing? Is it in Iraq? No. We preached patience but could not endure in the end and had to enter Syria together with the Free Syrian Army [FSA],” Erdo?an said at the first Inter-Parliamentary Jerusalem Platform Symposium in Istanbul.

“Why did we enter? We do not have an eye on Syrian soil. The issue is to provide lands to their real owners. That is to say we are there for the establishment of justice. We entered there to end the rule of the tyrant al-Assad who terrorizes with state terror. [We didn’t enter] for any other reason,” the president said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I nearly fell out of my chair, upon reading this, and thought, "Is this some horrific mistranslation?!? Has this guy utterly lost his reality licence?!?

But I googled the headline, and this came up in over 5 different times, in 5 different, credible resources, and yes, the headline is absolutely correct; Turkey has just declared war on the government of Syria.

There is however, a slightly different "spin" on this, courtesy of Russia Today (rt.com) In its coverage it added the following caveat: "However, many observers have said that Ankara aims to suppress Kurdish forces in Syria and prevent them from connecting three de facto autonomous Kurdish areas into one enclave south of the Turkish border."

Putin will not let a decap strike against Al-Assad happen.

So what's Erdogan's plan to avoid military conflict with the Russians, if regime change in Damascus is really his goal here?!?

Has President Obama, and NATO's Secretary General Stoltenberg given Erdogan some kind of covert promises to come in and assist, if the going gets rough against the Russian military (which it will)?!?

IF the answer to that question is in the affirmative, then the US government is on it's way to war with Russia and World War III even before Donald Trump gets to take the Oath of Office.

And what are the corporate presstitutes saying about this right now?!?

Absoflippinglutely NOTHING; zero, nada, zip.

THE CORPORATE MEDIA'S GULAG OF THE MIND

One of the most remarkable ironies of The Washington Post's recent evidence-free fabrication of purported "Russian propaganda" websites (including this site) is how closely it mimics the worst excesses of the USSR's Stalinist era.

Those unfamiliar with the Stalinist era's excesses will benefit from reading Solzhenitsyn's three-volume masterpiece The Gulag Archipelago: 1918-1956, The Gulag Archipelago 2 and Gulag Archipelago 3.

One episode is especially relevant to the totalitarian tactics of The Washington Post's evidence-free accusation. Solzhenitsyn tells the story of one poor fellow who made the mistake of recounting a dream he'd had the previous night to his co-workers.

In his dream, Stalin had come to some harm. In Solzhenitsyn's account, the fellow was remorseful about the dream.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When it comes to corporate media, I am anti-lie, particularly regarding those lies, either printed, spoken, or on my computer screen, created with the intent of selling me wars, which have absolutely nothing to do with protecting my country, but everything to do with enhancing private corporate profit.

In fact, the leadership of every single outlet which declared, without doing anything remotely related to fact checking, that Saddam Hussein had "weapons of mass destruction", should be charged as an accessory to the genocide of the Iraqi people, tried, and convicted, and do hard jail time for this.

I know that will only happen when pigs fly, so my brothers and sisters who are all part of the independent media, I say; hang in there.

Don't let this panicked smear job throw you off course for one second, because it demonstrates that the whorespondents and presstitutes can no longer shape the agenda: we do!!

*hyperlinks/video live at source*

This satire is based on the following objective and independently verifiable facts that point to hidden king-makers:

When Americans are told an election is defined by touching a computer screen without a countable receipt that can be verified, they are being told a criminal lie to allow election fraud. This is self-evident, but Princeton, Stanford, and the President of the American Statistical Association are among the leaders pointing to the obvious (and here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here). Again, no professional would/can argue an election is legitimate when there is nothing for anyone to count.

But in the past few years, it’s become apparent that anti-extraction protests are part of the new climate movement.

“In mid-January, a standing-room-only crowd packed a county courtroom near Seattle for a case so minor it normally would not have gone to trial. The five defendants were each charged with two misdemeanors: trespass and obstructing a train. All admitted to the crimes but pleaded ‘not guilty.’

Their defense, in simplified terms, was ‘climate change made me do it.’”

FLASHBACK: Heimdal, North Dakota, Evacuated After Fiery Oil Train Crash

BNSF loses billions when DAPL starts pumping.

A tiny North Dakota town was evacuated Wednesday after a train carrying crude oil derailed and several cars burst into flames, local authorities said. It is the latest in a string of explosive oil train derailments that have raised concerns about the large volume of crude moving across America's tracks.

No injuries have been reported from the derailment of a BNSF train near Heimdal, North Dakota. The town, which in 2010 had a population of 27, has been evacuated, as have farms near the crash site.

Rail Transport of Crude Oil Increases as Pipeline Falls Short

“We never thought we competed with pipeline until four years ago when we moved our first unit train of crude by rail,” Dean Wise, a vice president for BNSF Railway, based in Fort Worth, said at a rail conference in January. “Now BNSF is moving eight trains a day.” (BNSF is a corporate sponsor of The Texas Tribune.)

In Texas, the crude-by-rail boom has led to construction of facilities to help deliver the product to Gulf Coast refineries. It has also drawn concerns about the safety of moving such volatile materials throughout the state, in light of a spate of recent accidents.

Activists claim they’ve shut down all pipelines carrying crude oil from Canada to US

Climate activists say they’ve shut down all five pipelines carrying tar sand oil from Canada to the US. Operating in Minnesota, Montana, North Dakota, and Washington state, the activists manually turned off the pipelines’ safety valves as an act of solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, according to an online statement.

In a statement emailed to The Verge, Ali Hounsell, a spokesperson for Kinder Morgan's Trans Mountain pipeline, confirmed that this morning "reckless trespassers" broke into a location on Trans Mountain's Puget Sound pipeline system in Washington state. Local authorities responded, the statement reads, and arrested three individuals. "We are conducting a thorough inspection to ensure the integrity of the pipeline system," Hounsell concludes.

MANDAN, N.D. – The Morton County Sheriff’s Department said it will not file charges against a man who pulled a rifle from his pickup truck as he was confronted by Dakota Access Pipeline protesters Thursday, providing a description of events that differed from the one shared by protesters.

The man told authorities he heard people gathered outside the construction entrance telling him to leave and then to stop.

Checking the facts once again

1.CLAIM: The pipeline encroaches on indigenous lands.

TRUTH: The Dakota Access Pipeline traverses a path on private property and does not cross into the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s reservation. 100% of landowners in North Dakota voluntarily signed easements to allow for construction of the pipeline on their property. Nearly the entire route of the 1,172 mile pipeline has been sited and approved by relevant state and federal agencies and more than 22% of the pipeline has already been completed. To the extent possible, the Dakota Access Pipeline was routed to parallel existing infrastructure, such as the Northern Border Pipeline, to avoid environmentally sensitive areas and areas of potential cultural significance.

2. CLAIM: The pipeline exposes the Tribe’s water supply to contamination.

Tribal Ranchers believe DAPL protesters responsible for spike in bison deaths

False (sadly): Buffalo did not stampede DAPL protest at Standing Rock on their own

Ranchers have had livestock including cattle and bison rustled and killed and butchered by these fools.

Nothing would make me happier than to report that the viral story circulating about the buffalo showing up on their own to support the water protectors at Standing Rock was true—especially since what I teach is that animals have opinions about what we are doing in this world, want to be heard, and are patiently waiting for us to listen.

Sadly, it is NOT true. With scattered reports coming out of Standing Rock it is difficult to sort truth from fiction (or manipulated truth). The well-intentioned story of the “thousands” of buffalo who appeared as a stampede to support the protesters is one that I have spent the morning researching.

What the Dakota Access Pipeline Protesters Aren’t Telling You

Protesters claim that the pipeline was “fast-tracked,” denying tribal leaders the opportunity to participate in the process. In fact, project leaders participated in 559 meetings with community leaders, local officials, and organizations to listen to concerns and fine-tune the route. The company asked for, and received, a tougher federal permitting process at sites along the Missouri River. This more difficult procedure included a mandated review of each water crossing’s potential impact on historical artifacts and locations.

Protesters claim that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers failed to consult tribal leaders as required by federal law. The record shows that the corps held 389 meetings with 55 tribes. Corps officials met numerous times with leaders of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe, which initiated the lawsuit and the protests.

Nov 28 10:51

Are Environmentalists Using Native Americans, and Does It Matter?

On the environmental side, the motives are actually mixed. On the surface, the objections to the pipelines have to do with safety and pollution. Really, though, much of the campaign is about climate change. One leading campaign supporting the anti-DAPL protests, for example, is called #keepitintheground (the “it” being fossil fuels in general) and one of its leading voices is climate activist Bill McKibben. (DiCaprio, too, has been outspoken on fighting climate change.)
Anti-DAPL activists say they don’t want the DAPL built here. But in reality, they don’t want it built anywhere. Their real goals are combating fossil fuel development, moving America toward renewables, and mitigating global climate change. (At present, oil, gas, and coal comprise 81 percent of American energy consumption. Renewables comprise 5 percent.)
And that’s why they love to hate pipelines.

The Dakota Access Pipeline Protest Which Isn’t Really About a Pipeline

The activists air-dropping into North Dakota from all over the country, and even the world, are not anti-pipeline so much as they’re anti-oil. That’s an important distinction. While it may be within the realm of the reasonable to protest a specific infrastructure project, I think most Americans would consider trying to choke the domestic oil industry to death by blocking infrastructure to be an extreme goal.

Don’t believe me? Consider the website for EarthJustice, an activist group which has filed a lawsuit against the pipeline on behalf of the Standing Rock tribe and is currently seeking an injunction to block legally the on-going construction protesters like Woodley are trying to block physically.

The group describes themselves as “opposing infrastructure development that could lock us into decades of dirty fuels.”

With the help of celebrities and professional activists, protests of the Dakota Access Pipeline in North Dakota attracted international attention. The shouting and violence have drawn sympathy from people who are hearing only one side of the story — the one told by activists.

Were the full story to be heard, much, if not all, of that sympathy would vanish.

Protesters claim that the pipeline was “fast-tracked,” denying tribal leaders the opportunity to participate in the process. In fact, project leaders participated in 559 meetings with community leaders, local officials and organizations to listen to concerns and fine-tune the route. The company asked for, and received, a tougher federal permitting process at sites along the Missouri River.

Turkey's Erdogan escalates war of words with European Union

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan warned the European Union Saturday that Turkey could extend by at least another three months a state of emergency that has been in place since the failed July coup. In a public address in Istanbul, Erdogan launched another attack on the EU just days after the European Parliament voted to back a freeze in accession talks with Ankara.

"Maybe the state of emergency will be extended by three months and then maybe another three months," Erdogan said. "This is a decision for the government and the parliament." He also threatened to restore capital punishment, a decision that would effectively end Ankara's longstanding bid. And he added that he would listen to Turkish citizens rather than people named "Hans" and "George," picking two common European first names.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Right now, the hard truth is that Turkey and Europe need each other, particularly because of the immigration deal Europe still so desperately needs to ease the flow of immigration to their respective countries.

Erdogan has shown his proclivities for dictatorship, post-failed coup, and that may work for a while, if the Turkish people actually think he and his government can keep them safe; however, if this proves to not be true, you may well see gigantic demonstrations against him, and a snap election - allowed under the Turkish Constitution - through which to replace him.

Protecting law and order is everyone’s business

If you have been following the Dakota Access pipeline protest and thinking “poor Morton County,” think again.

This fiasco is very much our problem here in Ward County. We pay state taxes too. And our law enforcement officers and National Guard members get sent to Cannon Ball to help keep the peace like residents of any other town in North Dakota. We are all helping to cover the expenses created by a bunch of out-of-state, professional hoodlums who hide behind masks and throw rocks at officers sworn to uphold the law. We are in no way removed from this tragedy that is escalating daily.

Ron Paul Lashes Out At WaPo's Witch Hunt: "Expect Such Attacks To Continue"

On Thursday, the Post published a new article by Craig Timberg complaining of a “flood” of so-called fake news supported by “a sophisticated Russian propaganda campaign that created and spread misleading articles online with the goal of punishing Democrat Hillary Clinton, helping Republican Donald Trump and undermining faith in American democracy,” To advance this conclusion, Timberg points to PropOrNot, an organization of anonymous individuals formed this year, as having identified “more than 200 websites as routine peddlers of Russian propaganda during the election season.” Look on the PropOrNot list. There is the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity’s (RPI) website RonPaulInstitute.org listed among websites termed “Russian propaganda outlets.”

THE US GOVERNMENT IS ALREADY QUIETLY BACKING OUT OF ITS PROMISE TO PHASE OUT PRIVATE PRISONS

Critics have long denounced private prisons in the US as unsafe, inefficient and at times, inhumane. Those critics, who include inmates and activists, seemed to find a powerful ally earlier this year when the Department of Justice announced it would phase out its use of private prisons for federal prisoners. This wouldn’t mean the end of privately-run incarceration facilities (they’re also used by immigration authorities and states), but it was seen as a step forward. Except, that when the first contracts came up for re-negotiation this fall, the federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) quietly decided to renew them anyway. That decision, along with the election of Donald Trump, mean that the US is unlikely to see the use of private prison operators diminish any time soon.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The private prison system in this country is engineered to work magnificently for their shareholders, but terribly for inmates incarcerated in them.

Put very simply, they don't work; when an inmate finishes their sentence, they are very likely to be worse off in every conceivable way than when they went in, and the recidivism rate for these facilities is through the roof.

But, of course, the private prison industry has discovered the power of political contributions, and how they can make the industry "bullet-proof" to calls to shut them down, because of the lousy outcomes for their prisoners.

As reported at represent.us:

Private prison companies are exploiting our corrupt political system to lock people up… for profit. The two largest private prison companies alone have spent $35 million on lobbying and campaign contributions to state and local officials since 1989. Evidently, it was money well spent: The number of prisoners housed in private facilities has jumped 1600% since 1990. By buying favor with the right politicians, private prison companies have been able to secure everything from lucrative government contracts to harsher laws to guarantee a steady stream of inmates for their facilities. These companies turn our tax dollars into a lucrative business that hauls in $3 billion a year.

These numbers - and their implications - are just staggering.

Mike and I recently had the opportunity to watch Michael Moore's documentary, "Where to Invade Next?", and in this film is a segment on a Swedish prison. The prisoners are treated humanely, fed decently, and are truly rehabilitated before they leave. The ultimate outcome?!? People who can reintegrate with society, and the numbers document that only a tiny fraction of them re-offend.

The American penal system is horrifically broken, and until we can, as a nation, get this sorted, the system will not work, either for the prisoners, or ultimately, society at large, and we all pay a price for its disfunction.

DOCTOR AT STANDING ROCK: “PEOPLE HAD SHEETS OF ICE HANGING OFF THEM” AFTER POLICE TRIED TO MURDER DAPL PROTESTERS BY GIVING THEM HYPOTHERMIA

Dr. Robie Sterling finished his residency at Swedish Medical Center a few months ago. Not long after, he traveled to North Dakota with two other doctors from Swedish.

But he was alone in the medic tent when the radio call came in Sunday evening. There was a confrontation happening at the front line.

Sterling: “Police were starting to shoot the rubber bullets.”

Police also used water sprays and tear gas.

It was dark, below freezing, and injured people started to pour in.

Sterling: “The initial ones were nearly all head shots. Pretty much everyone had a concussion. Some of them had lacerations to the head. One woman had an eye injury.”

Sterling says the camp had just started to prepare for incidents like this, but they were far from ready.

Physicians and volunteers worked through the night as protesters and police clashed. Camp organizers estimate more than 200 were injured, and at least 17 hospitalized.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a very good reason why the corporate presstitutes are not covering this on-going protest; their corporate and governmental masters have ordered them NOT to cover this, because this kind of brutal police behaviour, toward unarmed protesters, is about to become the "new normal" future of policing nation-wide, and they don't want you to see what is coming until it is far too late to do anything about it.

And please remember; the police motto now is not "to protect and serve" but "to maim and kill in behalf of corporate interests!!"

EU votes for citizens to fund their own brainwashing

A fledgling group set up by the European Commission to allegedly counteract “Russian propaganda” is to be expanded with more public cash and resources. European citizens will be funding mechanisms inducing their own ignorance and misinformation.

You don't expect them to use their OWN money, do you? :)

The Western War On Truth

The “war on terror” has simultaneously been a war on truth. For fifteen years—from 9/11 to Saddam Hussein’s “weapons of mass destruction” and “al Qaeda connections,” “Iranian nukes,” “Assad’s use of chemical weapons,” endless lies about Gadaffi, “Russian invasion of Ukraine”—the governments of the so-called Western democracies have found it essential to align themselves firmly with lies in order to pursue their agendas.

Rosie O'Donnell Vilified For Questioning If Barron Trump Has Autism, Explains Her Own Kid Was Recently Diagnosed

54-year-old comedienne Rosie O'Donnell responded to a backlash of criticism she evoked for simply posting an 'anti-bullying video' on autism which 'was educational and informational.' She then reveals that she has been immersed in studying of the autism topic since her three year old daughter was recently diagnosed with 'HFA- high functioning autism.' She explains that she has "no ill will for his children or any children, and if u knew anything about me, u would know that." She concludes that Trump's advocacy on the issue 'would help so much with the autism epidemic' and adds '1 in 55 kids is an epidemic. donald and i agree on that, and not much else.' (Actually, they both have stated that there were bombs in the World Trade Center on 9/11, too. Maybe there's hope after all. :-)

The Hidden Communist History of the Neo-Conservatives (“Neo Cons”)

Neo-conservatism fully began to rear its ugly head in the 1990’s when they thoroughly infiltrated the once patriotic and pro-America Republican party.

It is therefore incumbent upon each and every single patriotic American who cares about the future of their country (especially federal, state, and local law enforcement and prosecutor offices) to immediately begin to identify, isolate, marginalize, investigate, indict, arrest, prosecute, and incarcerate all Neo-Conservatives as an internal and national security threat to the welfare of the United States of America.

Foibles, Fables and Failures – The Financial Press and its Keepers

The Presidential elections made millions of American voters starkly aware of the mendacity of the mass media and the corruption of the Clinton political elite.

The world’s largest billionaire bankers had bankrolled Secretary Hillary Clinton, the ‘million-dollar-a-speech’ War Goddess. They had bet heavily against the populist-nationalist Donald Trump and they lost. Their pre-paid political manifestos, addressed to the readers of the NY Times, flopped and sputtered: Most readers and investors in domestic markets had placed their bets on ‘The Donald’. Their domestic celebrations pumped up the market after the election.

The unimaginable had happened: George Soros had bet and lost! The ‘deplorable’ electorate preferred the obnoxious nationalist to the obnoxious speculator. ‘Who’d a thunk it?’
