Policy on citizens filming police being considered

The draft policy notes that citizens “have an unambiguous First Amendment right to record officers in public places, as long as their actions do not interfere with the officer’s duties or the safety of officers or others. Officers should assume that they are being recorded at all times when on duty in a public space.”

Russia gets seat on SWIFT board

Increased banking traffic means Russia now has a seat on the board of the SWIFT global interbank communications system. The seat comes at a time of increased pressure for Russia to be removed from the organization because of sanctions.

It is the first time Russia has had a seat on the 25-member board of directors of the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT) since it joined in 1989. Every three years the organization reconfigures the shares among the countries participating. Each country receives a number of shares in proportion to the traffic in the system. The reallocation has led to changes in the structure of the board.

Washington is recalibrating its ISIS strategy

Washington is recalibrating its ISIS strategy—with dangerous implications

As ISIS continues its onslaught in the Middle East and beyond, the United States is caught between two radically different responses. On the one hand, Washington wants allies to do far more of the heavy lifting in a broad coalition with a narrow mission: to “degrade and ultimately destroy” ISIS’ capabilities. But the administration is now shifting towards a more aggressive stance: to take the lead in defeating ISIS—and fast. The result is a strategic wasteland where allies are left guessing. Will America lead from behind or lead from in front? What’s driving this change?

There is growing pressure for this shift

The euro’s tumbling _ here’s why

The main reason is the European Central Bank has not only cut interest rates but also started creating more euros to put into the financial system.

The ECB had been reluctant to do so for years, but in 2014 it changed course. As policymakers faced the prospect of minimal growth and falling prices, which can further weigh on an economy, it cut its main interest rate in September to 0.05 percent. The move hit the euro by reducing the potential returns on investments in the eurozone.

As that proved insufficient to turn the eurozone around, the ECB has started buying government bonds in the markets with newly-created money.

Christian university shuts down bake sale benefiting homeless LGBT youth

A Christian university in Michigan has told students that they are forbidden from raising money for a group that benefits homeless LGBT youth because to do so would “conflict” with the university’s “mission and practices.”

According to Blue Nation Review, students at Andrews University in Berrien Springs, Michigan wanted to hold a bake sale to benefit Fierce Chicago, a relief group dedicated to providing services to LGBT homeless youth, who make up an estimated 40 percent of kids under 18 in the U.S. who have no place to live.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently this allegedly Christian university hasn't, in the 21st, century, gotten the memo that Jesus said, "Love thy neighbor as thyself", and there are zero exemptions to that exhortation to love - and that means loving everyone, and doing practical things to help those less fortunate, no matter what their sexual identity is.

This action by this dean is truly cringeworthy, and I feel very sad at the condemnatory, judgmental understanding he has regarding his faith; prayers that at some point, he will realize these are just kids who desperately need help, and not turn away from them because they are "different" in their orientation.

Wheels Fall Off the ISIS Psyop Forcing New Meme: Iran Nukes!

Bernie Suarez
Activist Post

Anyone paying attention to the tiresome 24/7 surreal ISIS psychological operation of the last six to eight months has probably noticed that with the recent bombshell revelations of ISIS working with Israel and the U.S. by the government of Iraq, the Western mainstream media has finally gone into retreat on the ISIS show...

Benjamin Fulford: YOU! American People are Surrounded: Hillary – Feloney Charge; English Royalty – Pedophiles; US, Israel, Iraq – Advising ISIl; Bibi Backfires Back Home; Ireland – Throwing Out Bankers; Veterans Today – Exposed Kazars… More

So many extremely import issues that would normally be hidden from our sight are now in the open:

Hillary could be facing felony charges over emails and can’t run for president if charged.

The Last, Great Run For The U.S. Dollar, The Death Of The Euro And 74 Trillion In Currency Derivatives At Risk

Today, there are five U.S. banks that each have more than 40 trillion dollars of total exposure to derivatives of all types. Those five banks are JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, Goldman Sachs, Citibank and Morgan Stanley.

By transforming Wall Street into a gigantic casino, those banks have been able to make enormous amounts of money.

But they are constantly performing a high wire act. One of these days, their reckless gambling is going to come back to haunt them, and the entire global financial system is going to be severely harmed as a result.

As I have said so many times before, derivatives are going to be at the heart of the next great global financial crisis.

And thanks to the wild movement of global currencies in recent months, there are now more than 74 trillion dollars in currency derivatives at risk.

Anyone that cannot see trouble on the horizon at this point is being willingly blind.

JP Morgan’s Giant Silver Fraud

In order to figure out what the elitists are going to do next in order to loot wealth from our system, all you have to do is think like a criminal. – Dave Kranzler, circa 2004

The Comex open interest for May silver (the current “front month” contract for Comex silver) is 535.6 million ounces. The current amount of ‘registered” silver – silver that has been designated as available to be delivered – is 68.8 million ounces (LINK). The amount of paper silver for just May is thus 7.78x greater than the amount of physical silver available for delivery. In other words, for every ounce of physical silver held in Comex silver vaults that has been declared available for delivery, there are 7.78 ounces of paper silver issued. The paper short interest in May silver is 778% greater than the amount of physical silver available to be delivered, according to Comex records.

The Speech

I was watching The Speech by Binyamin Netanyahu before the Congress of the United States. Row upon row of men in suits (and the occasional woman), jumping up and down, up and down, applauding wildly, shouting approval.
What did it contain? The Holocaust, of course, with that moral impostor, Elie Wiesel, sitting in the gallery right next to the beaming Sarah'le, who visibly relished her husband's triumph. (A few days before, she had shouted at the wife of a mayor in Israel: "Your man does not reach the ankles of my man!")

The Speech mentioned the Book of Esther, about the salvation of the Persian Jews from the evil Persian minister Haman, who intended to wipe them out. No one knows how this dubious composition came to be included in the Bible. God is not mentioned in it, it has nothing to do with the Holy Land, and Esther herself is more of a prostitute than a heroine. The book ends with the mass murder committed by the Jews against the Persians.

Netanyahu’s Iran Thing

Let’s begin with Benjamin Netanyahu’s Iran logic. He portrays a rampaging Islamic Republic that “now dominates four Arab capitals, Baghdad, Damascus, Beirut and Sana,” a nation “gobbling” other countries on a “march of conquest, subjugation and terror.” Then, in the same speech, he describes Iran as “a very vulnerable regime” on the brink of folding.

Well, which is it?

Benjamin Netanyahu’s Ideologically Dictated Worldview – An Analysis by Lawrence Davidson

On 3 March 2015 Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu came before the U.S. Congress and once again painted a false picture of Iran and its ambitions. His vision was both apocalyptic and simplistic: the state of Iran is evil and the source of most of the aggression and terrorism in the Middle East; it is eternally hostile to the West and it aims at the destruction of Israel; the West, with the United States leading the way, must stop this evil regime before it gains the capacity to use nuclear weapons.

He has been saying this for at least twenty five years, and like the false prophecies predicting the end of the world, the alleged catastrophe never seems to occur. Iran never seems to come up with a nuclear bomb. However, Netanyahu never stops predicting it.
Note: Please tell us Israel when, where and how did you get the nuclear bomb and how many do you have!

Youth Symphony Cancels Program That Quotes ‘Horst Wessel’ Song

Jonas Tarm had won the kind of opportunity most young composers can only dream of: the New York Youth Symphony had commissioned a piece from him and planned to play it this Sunday at Carnegie Hall. But the youth symphony pulled his piece this week after learning that it includes a musical quotation from the “Horst Wessel” song, the Nazi anthem.

“I was devastated,” Mr. Tarm said. “It’s one thing to have a concert canceled because of weather, or financial issues; that’s kind of like death by natural causes. But canceling because of something that it’s saying — it feels almost like murder to me.”

Note: It is only a matter of time before the American National Anthem will not be allowed because it has "stars and stripes" wording which reminds the holocau$ters of Auschwitz! Hand enough yet!!

Gilad Atzmon gig cancellation criticised

Manchester's Royal Northern College of Music denied scrapping the concert by the Israeli-born star was "political", and said it was for safety reasons.
A petition by the North West Friends of Israel called for the gig to be pulled, claiming Atzmon is anti-Semitic.
He said he was targeted for opposing Holocaust denial legislation in Israel.
Note: This is common modus operandi to prevent people the "tribe" doesn't like. They claim security after being threatened but the bullies are never punished.

Obama’s Iran Policy Close to Failure

The realization that the termination of years long process of seeking diplomatic solution of the Iranian problem may be close at hand has exacerbated the confrontation between the Congress and the President to the extent where lawmakers appear to be ready to deviate from the Constitution.

Six NATO warships take part in Black Sea naval drills

"NATO regularly deploys ships to the Black Sea for maritime awareness and training. This scheduled deployment, given Russia's continued assertiveness, carries an additional message of reassurance to allies in the region," a NATO official told Reuters.

Russia's continued assertiveness. What a curiously appropriate and strangely neutral choice of words. If there's one thing a bully hates, it is assertiveness on the part of the bullied.

German Intel: Breedlove is Bonkers!

What happens when a close friend starts acting so bizarrely that you need to gently extract yourself from his ravings lest you be tarred with the same brush -- or worse? That is the position in which Germany is increasingly finding itself, as the US government's strange pronouncements about Ukraine are getting too much to bear. The German establishment magazine Der Spiegel has just published a very important article, "Breedlove's Bellicosity: Berlin Alarmed by Aggressive NATO Stance on Ukraine," that lifts the lid on what official Germany really thinks about the US neocon push to war with Russia over Ukraine.

US Might Not Have Enough Drone Pilots to Fight ISIS

Despite the fact that ISIS is obviously being propped up by Western forces, a recent Pew Research poll discovered that a shocking 63% of Americans support using drone strikes against ISIS, and 47% would like to see a ground invasion of the region. I guess some things never change. History has shown us time and time again, that the vast majority of Americans are so dupable that it would be hilarious if it weren’t so tragic. As the old saying goes, “fool me once” and well…you know the rest.

Splitting the Atlantic Alliance - NATO Lies and Provocations

The fabrications of NATO’s top commander in Europe, General Philip Breedlove, have driven a wedge between Germany and the United States that could lead to a collapse of the Atlantic Alliance. According to the German news magazine, Der Spiegel, Breedlove has repeatedly sabotaged Chancellor Angela Merkel’s attempts to find a diplomatic solution to the war in Ukraine by spreading “dangerous propaganda” that is misleading the public about Russian “troop advances on the border, (and) the amassing of munitions and alleged columns of Russian tanks.” But while the unusually critical article singles out Breedlove for his hyperbolic exaggerations of so-called Russian aggression, the real purpose of the Spiegel piece is to warn Washington that EU leaders will not support a policy of military confrontation with Moscow.
