Erdoganistan

In modern-day Turkey, hundreds from the Kurdish minority in the southeast are said to be dying at the hands of government forces. The Kurds have long been seeking autonomy for their region. The subject is rarely seen in the Turkish media as journalists who cover the issue have often been detained.

Global Gun Control Advocates to Meet in NYC to Set UN Disarmament Agenda

Anti-gun globalists will meet in New York City this week discuss ways to confiscate small arms and ammunition from civilians and to consolidate monopoly control over those weapons in the hands of the governments of United Nations (UN) member states. The convention is part of a UN-controlled process of disarmament called the Programme of Action (PoA).

From June 6-10 delegates from around the world will attend the Sixth Biennial Meeting of States (BMS6) of the PoA. This latest planning meeting will give delegates an opportunity to move the ball closer to the goal of ridding the world's civilian population of the small arms and ammunition that could challenge the ability of UN-approved governments to carry out the will of the world body.

Letters prove GCHQ bends laws to spy at will. So what's the point of privacy safeguards?

Letters between GCHQ and an official overseeing the spy agency shed new light on how Blighty's eavesdroppers interpret laws to suit their surveillance efforts.

The memos were obtained by campaign group Privacy international and published today.

Although the letters date from 2004, they show how the agency is willing to bend the rules – a fact that is highly relevant right now as Parliament mulls a new law granting fresh powers to UK spies.

3-minute UK comedian’s video: Psychopath War Criminal Tony Blair lied UK/US to illegal war, but calls Jeremy Corbyn ‘dangerous’

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

UK comedian Jonathan Pie’s 3-minute video (adult language):

Last year, Arundhati Roy asserted US/UK leaders as: "Violent criminal psychopaths make fools of us. Stop being reasonable about this." In 5-minutes:

In this 5-minute video, Presidents Bush and Obama, Secretary of State and presidential-hopeful Ms. Clinton, presidential-hopeful has-been John McCain, and former Secretary of State and Bush family friend James Baker all joke about these unlawful and lie-started wars:

This article explains how the US/UK wars are the opposite of legal. Its specific section on then Prime Minister Blair’s choice to pursue illegal War of Aggression:

Millimeter Microwaves: ‘Anti-Terror’ Artificial Intelligence Scanning in Public

There is a new technology being tested for use on UK civilians en masse on our streets, millimetre microwave scanners.

These electromagnetic radiation scanners, which use Ultra Wide Band (UWB) at 75-110 GHz, are able to be beamed at crowds to detect potential concealed weapons being carried by individuals.

As subprime auto borrowers default, collection suits pile up in local courts

In August 2008, William Lesinski walked into a Car Credit City in Bridgeton and made a decision that would be far more expensive than he ever imagined.

Wanting to buy his son a car as a high school graduation gift, Lesinski put $1,750 down and drove off the lot in a 2003 Ford Mustang. The loan for the car was $11,367, and it carried 29 percent annual interest over nearly four years.

Merkel Panics! Tells British Voters That They Would Be Punished If They Vote Brexit

Panic is clearly setting in as Obama, followed by Merkel, are both trying to bully Britain into staying in the EU… warning that the UK would be punished if voters go for the Brexit option. This can only mean that it is clearly in the UK’s best interest to get the hell out of Brussels.

Watch: New York Sanitation Officers Search Through People’s Trash to Cite them for Recycling Improperly

Readers may be wondering how sanitation officers determine if someone is violating recycling laws. “They feel your garbage bags. If they feel that there is a recyclable item in your trash bag, they will open it up and check. They can’t give you a fine without knowing what’s in there. So, they’re looking into your garbage in order to give you a fine,” says Stier. What do you think? Do sanitation laws enforced this way trash privacy laws under the Fourth Amendment?

Syria: The U.S. Is Unwilling To Settle - Russia Returns For Another Round

The Obama administration does not want peace in Syria. The Russians finally have to admit to themselves that the U.S. is no partner for a continuation of a cease fire, a coordinated attack against the Islamic State and al-Qaeda and for peace in Syria. Indeed, as Lavrov explains, the U.S. has again asked to spare al-Qaeda from Russian air strikes even as two UN Security Council resolutions demand its eradication. Huge supply convoys (vid) from Turkey are again going to the "rebels" who will, as always, share them with al-Qaeda and other terrorists.

Dead drop

Hillary's server is just a modern,high tech,dead drop!

A dead drop or dead letter box is a method of espionage tradecraft used to pass items or information between two individuals (e.g., a case officer and agent, or two agents) using a secret location, thus not requiring them to meet directly and thereby maintaining operational security. The method stands in contrast to the live drop, so called because two persons meet to exchange items or information.

US illegal: History of rogue empire REQUIRING arrests in the present. Vietnam: canceling democracy to back a dictator and cause civil war, false flag for illegal US military invasion, war-murdering millions (8 of 11)

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

There are examples of virtuous US policy, such as the Marshall Plan after WW2. In 1947, the Marshall Plan replaced the punitive Joint Chiefs of Staff 1067 (JCS 1067) plan that restricted trade to Germany and caused a slow starvation diet of ~1,000 calories a day that deliberately killed German civilians (23). The Marshall Plan worked for the revitalization of participating European countries’ economies. By the end of the program in 1953, all countries’ economies except for Germany were performing higher than pre-war levels (24).

As you may know, many US activists in your world of the present request a “New Marshall Plan” for global development rather than expanding “wars on terror.” Many activists, including Dr. King, requested this rather than “wars on communism,” especially with the Vietnam War.

Will you soon need a government ID to log into Facebook? Europe Commission proposes controversial scheme to access social media sites

Most of us log into our social media sites, whether it is Twitter, Facebook or Instagram at least a few times a day.

But soon, it could require more than entering your username and password to check your friends' latest updates.

The European Commission is now proposing the idea of using national ID cards to log in to online services, including Facebook, Twitter and even Uber.

Government ID cards are used in European member states, except for Denmark and the UK. But the move may open the floodgates to similar actions elsewhere.

Saudis rooting for Clinton to win White House: Oil analyst

“It is no secret that the Saudis and other [Persian] Gulf Sunni powers are rooting for Mrs. Clinton,” Bob McNally, president of Washington-based consulting firm Rapidan Group, told CNBC from Vienna on Thursday.

The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) holds its semiannual meeting Thursday in Vienna, but is unlikely to announce any strategy changes.

McNally said that there is “a lot of concern and anxiety” about what a Donald Trump presidency would mean for the oil market.

Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee, has questioned the protective nature of the US relationship with Saudi Arabia.

He has suggested that the United States should consider ditching Riyadh because Washington is increasingly getting less dependent on overseas oil.

THIS IS WHY POLICE BEAT PEOPLE — TWO POLICE ACADEMIES CAUGHT ON VIDEO TEACHING EXCESSIVE FORCE

Not one, but two police training academies have now been suspended for what appears to be teaching the use of excessive force — as the norm — captured on video. After an investigation by the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE), the Lower Rio Grande Development Council (LRGVDC) Regional Police Academy and the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office Training Academy have been suspended until two further investigations are concluded. “During a defensive tactic training session, video was conducted for the purposes of cadet instruction and feedback,” the Lower Rio Grande Development Council told local station CBS 4 News in a statement. “Video feedback had not been previously utilized by LRGVDC Police Academy and after evaluating this practice and as a result of this incident, this method will not be used in the future.”

WALL STREET BEHIND BRAZIL COUP D’ETAT

Brazil’s currency system under the Real is heavily dollarised. Internal debt operations are conducive to a rising external debt. Wall Street is intent upon maintaining Brazil in a monetary straightjacket.

Since the government of Fernando Henrique Cardoso, Wall Street has exerted control over key economic appointments including the Ministry of Finance, the Bank of Brazil and the Central Bank. Under the governments of Fernando Henrique Cardoso and Luis Ignacio da Silva (Lula), the appointment of the governor of the Central Bank was approved by Wall Street.

Satan's Choice for Vice President

The Republican Party’s presidential nominee, Donald Trump, has made his short-list of vice presidential choices. The news is out that former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich is top on the list. This is great news for billionaire Jewish money-men, but it is very sad news for patriotic Americans.

The billionaire Jews who own the Republican Party establishment are eager to see their long-time puppet, Gingrich, sitting just a heartbeat away from the Oval Office. Then, at the crack of an assassin’s bullet, the President could be slain and—ka-ching!—the cash registers would be rung as President Gingrich, an ardent Zionist and Israel-firster, is sworn in.

Just How Shady is Hillary Clinton? This Shady...

"The American people are sick and tired of hearing about your damn emails." – Bernie Sanders, during the October 13, 2015 Democratic debate

Boy was Bernie Sanders wrong about that. It turns out the Hillary Clinton email scandal is way more damaging and dishonest than even her harshest critics could have imagined.

I’m sure that by now most of you are intimately aware of the scathing report issued by the State Department inspector general regarding Hillary Clinton’s unconscionable use of a private server for all her official government emails. It’s now clear that this was no honest mistake, but rather a deliberate attempt to shield her correspondence from the American people.

Judge Andrew Napolitano has penned a must read piece about the whole affair at Reason titled, Inspector General’s Report Refutes All of Hillary Clinton’s Defenses For Using Private Email Server. Here are a few choice excerpts:

The German iron fist is smashing Europe apart: Merkel's brutal treatment of Greece means a peaceful and prosperous EU is a pipe dream

Amid the tumult over Brexit, an annual ritual is being played out which demolishes the notion that Angela Merkel’s Germany is a benign power working for the greater good of its partners in the European Union and the eurozone.

Berlin is demanding its pound of flesh from the government of Greece, which is beset by high debts, economic desolation, broken banks — and the flood of migrants that resulted from Merkel’s catastrophically mistaken open invitation to refugees from Syria.

June and July are when repayments on Greece’s loans are due, and when future repayment arrangements are negotiated.

And Germany, as Greece’s main creditor, is playing hardball — as it has every year for the past five years.
Protesters clash with riot police during a general strike in Athens in 2012 but we can expect more violent demos as Greeks rail at the German yoke

“The crime lab took the pair of underpants, neatly cut out the part that they were gonna test, tested it, came back with the result of what kind of blood it was what was mixed in with it – then sent the pants back with the hole in it to evidence,” said Clinton (LISTEN HERE). “Of course the crime lab had thrown away the piece they had cut out.”

Clinton said she got permission from the court to take the underwear to a renowned forensics expert in New York City to see if he could confirm that the evidence had been invalidated.

What Hell Is Coming? Even Obama Is Warning Americans ‘To Prepare For Disaster’

Barack Obama doesn’t open his mouth unless it is to spin propaganda for an agenda. If disaster comes, will it be a false flag terror event, mega-natural disaster or total episode of civil unrest combined with martial law coming to America soon?

If Obama is the one telling you to get prepared for disaster, then it might already be too late. Obama stated:

One of the things that we have learned over the course of the last seven and a half years is that government plays a vital role, but it is every citizen’s responsibility to be prepared for a disaster. And that means taking proactive steps, like having an evacuation plan, having a fully stocked disaster supply kit. If your local authorities ask you to evacuate, you have to do it. Don’t wait.

STUDY: ULTRA-LOW DOSES OF MONSANTO'S ROUNDUP CAUSE MASSIVE GENE ALTERATIONS IN LAB RATS, LEADING TO OTHER HEALTH PROBLEMS

New research shows that ultra-low dose exposure to glyphosate, the active ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup, causes massive gene alterations in lab rats, according to a study published in the journal Environmental Health.

The report is the first in a series of studies observing the effects ultra-low doses of glyphosate have on gene expression profiles and the subsequent epigenetic changes, or changes that become inherited patterns of gene function, which can lead to other health problems down the road.

The research is being led by Molecular Geneticist Dr. Michael Antoniou with King's College in London, and Cellular and Molecular Biologist Dr. Robin Mesnage, who successfully reverse-engineered the co-formulants in Roundup.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You need to avoid this product like the plague.

OBAMA BLAMES ‘RIGHT-WING RADIO’ FOR MAKING ‘PEOPLE THINK BIG GOVERNMENT IS THE PROBLEM’

President Obama visited Elkhart, Indiana on Wednesday and during a town hall meeting blamed "right-wing radio" for distorting his economic record and for making "people think big government is the problem."

"I hope you don't mind me being blunt about this," the president said, "but I've been listening to this stuff for a while now and I'm concerned when I watch the direction of our politics."

When Obama visited Elkhart seven years ago, the unemployment rate was near 20%. Now, he boasts that the rate has dropped to around 4% in the city and 5% across the state.

The president seems to be on a legacy tour, promoting his tenure in the last remaining months he has at the White House. So, every opportunity must be used to blame the vast right-wing conspiracy, especially Fox News and talk radio.

We don't need talk radio to tell us big government is the problem, Mr. President. Our Founding Fathers warned of it long ago.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to President Obama; sir, in every possible metric, except the deal with Iran, you have been a profound disappointment to those people who supported you over the Republican candidates during the last two elections.

And am I, as are so many million Americans, experiencing "Supporters' regret?!?

Hell yes, sir.

Your Bureau of Labor Statistics conveniently "forgets" those who have not participated in the labor force for some time. As reported at cnsnews.com, in October 2015:

A record 94,610,000 Americans were not in the American labor force last month -- an increase of 579,000 from August -- and the labor force participation rate reached its lowest point in 38 years, with 62.4 percent of the U.S. population either holding a job or actively seeking one.

Under your watch, child poverty is up scarily;and educational performance from nation's kids is declining.

Under your watch, the US government now has close to a 20 trillion dollar deficit.

The middle class is rapidly disappearing, thanks to continuing outsourcing/offshoring of jobs, again under your watch.

People who voted for you did not realize that the unintended consequence of such a vote would plunge them into serfdom, where many are now working 3-4 part time jobs to barely replace the decent money they were making from their former job which got offshored.

Americans have watched with great unease as your promises of "no boots on the ground" in both Syria (where the US military has not been invited) and Iraq (where we are barely tolerated) have been absolutely thrown out the window, and it is now confirmed that we have troops on the front lines in both countries.

Libya is an utter disaster, and there is talk of the US military having to go back in again to sort out the mess.

Our Veterans are not being cared for at all, with many of them dying before they see a Doctor at the VA, and many of them have been declared dead, in order to enable the VA to not pay them the benefits they are owed.

That gaping hell-hole, better known as Guantanamo Bay, where torture is still practiced on its prisoners, is still open. Didn't you promise to close that, sir?!?

And let's talk about the pre-positioning of NATO and US troops and personnel in Eastern Europe as a provocation of Russia, shall we?!? It appears that you, and your administration, are hell-bent to get the US and NATO into a war with Russia. Over the last couple of years, NATO has been encircling Russia, and that encirclement is nearly complete, with Montenegro soon becoming the most recent member of NATO. Anyone with any sense, looking at a map, understands why this is so critical, when the US and NATO go to war with Russia.

And of course, let's not forget China, and the provocations our military has done in the South China Seas, with those alleged "Freedom of Navigation" exercises. This appears to set the US government on a collision course, militarily, with China, to prevent the rise of the gold-backed Yuan, which is not dollar-convertible.

What I have outlined above are incontrovertible facts.

And Mr. President, like so many of my brother and sister Americans, I an neither a rightist or leftist, but a centrist, when it comes to my political philosophy.

But thinking people in this country have the right to be concerned about "big government", not because it is big, but because it is collectively hubristic, believes it can do anything it wants to do with impunity, to benefit the money junkies, and is woefully, and thoroughly, dysfunctional.

THAT, sir, is the only logical conclusion about the state of American governance today.

TSA LONG LINES PART OF SCHEME TO MOVE AMERICANS TO MANDATORY “BIOMETIC BACKGROUND PRE-CHECK SYSTEM”? by Mac Slavo

Problem. Reaction. Solution.

Though the TSA has never been effective at catching or reducing terrorism, it has become very good at inconveniencing Americans.

Rifling through their things, herding them through x-ray machines reminiscent of Nazi policies, forcing people to withstand increasingly long lines, with many people even losing out on flights. All in the name of security.

After wait times across the country have made headlines and left airport travelers stranded and fed up, Homeland Security chief Jeh Johnson, whose agency overseas the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), is calling for a solution based in… what else… greater security.

Secretary Johnson is using the 2016 travel crisis to push for more sign-ups in its Pre-Check program, in which applicants undergo a rigorous background check and pay an $85 fee for speedy TSA screenings. Johnson dubbed it “the E-ZPass of airports.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If I have to wait for 9 hours for a half hour flight, so be it: I will not sign up for this Pre-Check program, because I know that many people who have signed up for it wound up having to go through the entire process again, even though they had been allegedly cleared from any suspicion of being baddies by the TSA.

I will use the time reading something constructive.

As a Christian pacifist activist, who strongly encourages US leadership to resolve its geopolitical differences through good-faith negotiations rather than wars, I am the absolute polar opposite from anyone who would want to harm anyone, and I do not advocate violence, ever

This is why I am getting very tired of governmental agencies, such as the TSA (known here in the islands as the Tourist Suppression Agency) indulging in Code Napoleon law, which presumes I a guilty until proven innocent; that is certainly not the premise of American law, although one would hardly know it by the way the TSA treats people.

EFF: FBI & NIST'S TATTOO RECOGNITION PROGRAM EXPLOITED PRISONERS, PROFILED BASED ON RELIGION, GAVE SENSITIVE INFO TO PRIVATE CONTRACTORS

Dave Maass from EFF says, "Right now, NIST researchers are working with the FBI to develop tattoo recognition technology that police can use to learn as much as possible about people through their tattoos. But an EFF investigation has found that these experiments exploit inmates, with little regard for the research's implications for privacy, free expression, religious freedom, and the right to associate. And so far, researchers have avoided ethical oversight while doing it." "NIST's research involved profiling people based on their religious tattoos, exploited prisoners, and handed private data to third parties. And they did all that without going through the proper review process"

Timeline of CIA Atrocities

CIA operations follow the same recurring script. First, American business interests abroad are threatened by a popular or democratically elected leader. The people support their leader because he intends to conduct land reform, strengthen unions, redistribute wealth, nationalize foreign-owned industry, and regulate business to protect workers, consumers and the environment. So, on behalf of American business, and often with their help, the CIA mobilizes the opposition. First it identifies right-wing groups within the country (usually the military), and offers them a deal: “We’ll put you in power if you maintain a favorable business climate for us.” The Agency then hires, trains and works with them to overthrow the existing government (usually a democracy).

(i) Hate crimes as defined in Section 1(c).

(ii) Incitement to violence against a group as defined in Section 1(a).

(iv) Overt approval of a totalitarian ideology, xenophobia or anti-Semitism.

(v) Public approval or denial of the Holocaust.

WHY DO THE POSTAL SERVICE, USDA, EPA, AND DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE NEED SWAT TEAMS?

All throughout the United States there are government agencies who have no association with national security acquiring military-like equipment, according to news talk KFLD.

Many agencies are receiving SWAT teams including the Department of Agriculture, the Railroad Retirement Board, the Tennessee Valley Authority, the Office of Personnel Management, the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Education Department.

In almost prophetic fashion, Ron Paul in a 1997 warned about the militarization of federal bureaucrats; including the BLM, which was not yet armed.

“All government power is ultimately gun power and serves the interests of those who despise or do not comprehend the principles of liberty,” said Dr. Paul. “The gun in the hands of law-abiding citizens serves to hold in check arrogant and aggressive government. Guns in the hands of the bureaucrats do the opposite. The founders of this country fully understood this fact.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This trend is truly terrifying to thinking Americans; and apparently, there is no end in sight.

All the employees at these agencies should be public servants; not public bullies, who believe they have a license to kill with impunity.

Judge 'manipulated' 9/11 attacks case, court document alleges

The judge overseeing the premiere military tribunal at Guantánamo Bay effectively conspired with the prosecution to destroy evidence relevant to defending the accused architect of the 9/11 attacks, according to a scathing court document.

Army Col James Pohl, who this week at Guantánamo is presiding over a resumption of pretrial hearings in the already troubled case, “in concert with the prosecution, manipulated secret proceedings and the use of secret orders”, the document alleges, preventing Khalid Sheikh Mohammed’s defense team from learning Pohl had permitted the Obama administration to destroy the evidence.

The accusation comes in a 10 May defense filing that the military commissions have recently unsealed. It contains significant detail about an episode that Mohammed’s attorneys say has permanently tainted the most high-profile test of the US’s post-9/11 turn toward military justice for terrorism cases.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, the Obama Administration was permitted by Judge Pohl, to destroy evidence which might have cleared this guy?!?!?

Hear that distant, chunka-chunka-chunka sound?!?

That is the sound, dear friends, of the Founding Fathers (and the women who loved them) collectively turning over in their graves, upon hearing this news!

MORE AMERICANS KILLED BY POLICE SINCE 9/11 THAN SOLDIERS KILLED IN WAR

For the last 15 years, America has fallen across the board in indices rating the world’s countries by levels of freedom.

Americans are under constant surveillance, our every move under a microscope by government goons, “protecting us” from “terrorists.” We are under the constant threat of violence from the state for possessing a plant, or having a tail light out, or simply walking down the street.

Americans are constantly paranoid of those blue and red lights popping up in the rearview mirror that most always end in extortion and could very well end with a visit to the hospital, being locked in a cage, or worse.

In the Land of the Free, police killed more people in just one month of this year than the United Kingdom has in the entire 20th century.

In the Land of the Free, police kill at more than 70 times the rate of other first world nations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

ARE YOU FLIPPING KIDDING ME?!?

I knew the numbers were bad, but I surely didn't expect them to be this bad.

The "land of the free and the home of the brave" has morphed into "the land of the surveilled, cowed, and assassinated".

Mike and I are far too old to immigrate; but watching the dismantling of our freedoms, the hijacking of the US government, and the turning of this democratic republic into a dictatorship, run by vile warmongers and money junkies, is sometimes almost too much to bear.

Police violence and brutality are simply reflections of the dark changes in US government policy toward its own people, writ large.

Individuals, particularly if they are poor, and/or persons of color, who are in large part irrelevant to the corporate machine, now can be terminated with extreme prejudice and complete impunity.

And far too many times, the police who have assassinated these people walk away without ever having to fact the consequences of their actions.

How in the name of Heaven did we get here, as a nation?!?

BLACKWATER/ACADEMI MERCENARIES PROCURED BY UNITED ARAB EMIRATES ARE NOW FIGHTING IN YEMEN

Receiving scant attention from Western mainstream media outlets except for a few notable exceptions, Americans and many alternative media outlets have remained ignorant to the fact that private mercenaries from Blackwater (aka Academi) appear to have been contracted by the GCC Gulf state feudal monarchies to assist in the military war of terror in Yemen against the Houthi rebels and the embattled Yemeni people.

Still, on December 9, a flurry of reports from media outlets such as Press TV, TeleSur TV, Al-Manar, Al –Bawaba, and Colombia Reports have revealed that around 15 Blackwater mercenaries have been killed in a fierce battles with the Houthi forces.

Al-Masirah, Yemen’s Arabic language website reported that the Commander-In-Chief of the firm’s operation in Yemen, a Mexican national, was killed in the al-Omari district of Ta’izz Province.

Press TV reports that a number of British, French, and Australian advisers and commanders as well as six Colombian soldiers were killed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: in over one year, the Saudi Arabian military, enabled by US intelligence and weapons, has not been able overwhelm either the Houthi rebels, or the Yemenite people, meaning they have been unable to "pacify" them into accepting their former dictator, Al-Hadi, back.

Saudi Arabia is in real financial trouble, from the precipitous drop in oil prices last year. Apparently, they cannot make this war work without having their allies hire private mercs to fight the war for them.

And when you are at that point in a military campaign, you know it is going terribly badly.

Ken O’Keefe in Canada - on beating the bankers, Israeli brutality, and the 9/11 ‘gift’

O’Keefe told his audiences that we won’t solve our biggest problems until we understand that we have been subjugated by an international financial system that concentrates power in the hands of an ultra-rich and very shadowy elite. And this elite routinely uses war as a tool to increase its power.

“I’ve travelled all over this world, and we are all basically the same,” he said in his first Toronto talk. “We don’t want war. But we have war – all the time. Why? Because the bankers run the world, and war is the best thing for them. Not only does it provide more profits for them but more importantly it divides people. What can divide people more than killing each other?”

“We’re consenting to the destruction of our world,” he said.

How State Department IG's Report On Clinton's Emails Could Lead To Joe Biden Becoming Democratic Nominee

THE THOROUGH and devastating report by the State Department’s Inspector General concerning Hillary Clinton’s emails has blasted away all the former Secretary of State’s excuses and rationales. For instance, Clinton never received legal permission of any sort for what she did. She knowingly jeopardized national security. She and her aides tried to stonewall the investigation. By the way, the IG was appointed by President Obama, so Clinton can’t claim these findings were politically motivated by a GOP holdover.

Other officials have faced serious charges for offenses far less serious.

The Clinton campaign is counting on public indifference and confusion to blunt any lasting fallout. Unstated also is perhaps the belief that the egregiously politicized Obama Justice Department will make sure the ongoing FBI investigation ends up going nowhere, with, at worst, a homogenized finding of unintentional carelessness.

Ted Cruz’s Senate colleagues tell him to stay the hell away from their reelection campaigns

Republican senators, already facing the possibility of a tough reelection in a year that will likely see Donald Trump heading up the ticket, have something else to fear — Ted Cruz’s support.

According to The Hill, Sens. Kelly Ayotte (NH), John McCain (AZ) and Pat Toomey (PA) are all facing tough reelection bids and have told Cruz thanks, but no thanks when it comes to endorsements and campaign help.

TONY BLAIR GETS AWAY WITH COMMITTING WAR CRIMES

The reason for this is simple.

There are two sets of moral and legal standards—one for the elite and their handpicked minions, and another, far more exacting and harsh, for the rest of us, the commoners.

On Saturday, another example reminded us of this double standard.

The so-called Chilcot Inquiry decided former British prime minister Tony Blair will not be investigated for breaking the law when he colluded with George W. Bush and the neocons to invade Iraq and kill over a million people.

A report generated by a committee of Privy Counsellors and led by Sir John Chilcot declared it would “not seek to determine the guilt of innocence of anybody” and will not make “any judgments on the legality or anything like that,” The Sunday Telegraph reports.

Instead, the report focuses on the “decision making behind the conflict and whether any lessons can be learned,” according to The Guardian.

Goldman Sachs Financed Hillary Clinton’s Son-in-Law to Make Bullish Greek Bets After It Structured Unseemly Greek Debt Deals that Hobbled that Country

On May 10, the New York Times gently dropped a bombshell on the hedge fund investing world of New York’s one-percenters. Hillary and Bill Clinton’s son-in-law, Marc Mezvinsky, who married their only child, Chelsea, in an opulent 2010 wedding, was shuttering the Eaglevale Hellenic Opportunity Fund after it had lost 90 percent of its value. That is a staggering loss for a hedge fund, which is, as its name implies, supposed to have hedges in place to prevent that kind of loss.

The TSA Totally Screwed This Up

With so many people in the air, you’d think the TSA would be beefing up its staff, but the opposite is true. Since 2011, the TSA actually cut its staff by more than 10%, which makes for even longer security lines at the airport.

To be fair, the TSA didn’t pare down just to make life difficult for us.

They cut their personnel at the same time they rolled out the TSA PreCheck program, or TSAPre for short, which allows pre-screened passengers to use a faster screening service. They thought the new program would make up for the difference in employees.

Webmaster's Commentary: 


Here in Hawaii, to get from island to island, you have to wait in line 2 hours for a flight that takes about 20 minutes. And the TSA's screed of "it's for your safety" crumbles when you consider that 95% of the practice bombs and guns used to test the security gates get through! Add to that the fact that the TSA hasn't caught a single real terrorist in its existence and you can see where the public hostility comes from. It's a typical government program; costly and troublesome, that produces no real results.

People do not want to use the pre-check program because they feel, with justification, that government has become too intrusive as it is. Don't they already have enough information to know who is a threat and who isn't? Isn't that what the NSA spying was supposed to do?

Robert Heinlein made the observation that when any society requires more than three forms of identification to function, it is about to collapse.

Mike Rivero Interviews Attorney Allan J. Favish On The Vincent Foster Case - Must Hear

Last Thursday May 26, 2016, Mike Rivero of WhatReallyHappened.com interviewed attorney Allan J. Favish on the Vincent foster case. The two have a very interesting discussion covering many interesting and little-known aspects of this case. Favish sued the U.S. government in the 1990s and it went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. He sought the release of "photographs taken by the Government as part of its investigation into the death of President Bill Clinton’s Deputy White House Counsel Vincent Foster. On March 30, 2004, the United States Supreme Court issued its opinion in the case entitled National Archives and Records Administration v. Allan J. Favish." Foster was "suicided" on July 20, 1993 and the issue is relevant today, particularly because of arch-criminal Hillary Clinton's bid for the presidency.

MINISTRY OF TRUTH: FACEBOOK SIGNS EUROPEAN UNION PLEDGE TO SUPPRESS LOOSELY DEFINED ‘HATE SPEECH’ AND PROMOTE ‘COUNTER NARRATIVES’

The European Commission has today announced a partnership with Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Microsoft in order to crack down on what it classes as “illegal hate speech” while “criminaliz[ing]” perpetrators and “promoting independent counter-narratives” that the European Union favours.

A press release from the Commission this morning claims the new initiative has been set up “to respond to the challenge of ensuring that online platforms do not offer opportunities for illegal online hate speech to spread virally”.

The move has been branded “Orwellian” by Members of the European Parliament, and digital freedom groups have already pulled out of any further discussions with the Commission, calling the new policy “lamentable”.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but you have to know where this is going; to tell the truth in the EU, by any electronic method, is going to be deemed "illegal".

And these alleged "trusted reporters"; who are they, except those pushing the EU agenda, and removing anything which could possibly not be in sync with that agenda, even if what they are removing about potential negative aspects of the EU happens to be the truth?!?

HIDDEN PLANS FOR EU ARMY COMMAND CENTRE LEAKED AHEAD OF BREXIT VOTE

The European Commission had been keeping the plans in a sealed room, which could only be entered by a small number of EU political and security committee ambassadors, leaving all electronics at the door.

However, one individual managed to take notes and leak them to The Times. It was revealed that in terms of how the EU functions, “security and defence [are] where a step change is most urgent”.

Federica Mogherini, head of foreign policy in the EU, has allegedly spent years preparing the plans, conveniently due to be discussed by EU leaders just one week after Britain’s referendum.

The plans will, of course, be seen as a major power grab, and an incursion on national sovereignty and the effectiveness of NATO in the lead up to the Brexit vote – thus the secrecy.

The UK vetoed similar proposals in 2011, and David Cameron and the Ministry of Defence (MoD) continue to deny an EU army is possible.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to Ms. Federica Mogherini; in the words of my late grandmother., "the horse is already out of the barn", so PLEASE, cut the bovine excrement and tell the truth to the British people.

GOVERNMENTS TURN TO COMMERCIAL SPYWARE TO INTIMIDATE DISSIDENTS

A number of companies in the United States are training foreign law enforcement and intelligence officials to code their own surveillance tools. In many cases these tools are able to circumvent security measures like encryption. Some countries are using them to watch dissidents. Others are using them to aggressively silence and punish their critics, inside and outside their borders.

“There’s no substantial regulation,” said Bill Marczak, a senior fellow at the Citizen Lab at the University of Toronto’s Munk School of Global Affairs, who has been tracking the spread of spyware around the globe. “Any government who wants spyware can buy it outright or hire someone to develop it for you. And when we see the poorest countries deploying spyware, it’s clear money is no longer a barrier.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a menacing trend, and one which I do not see getting any better soon.

But intelligent people need to be made to understand that you never blog, email, or communicate with your cell phones, unless that communication is absolutely vanilla, because despotic governments (including that of the US) will use anything you type or say against you, to further and perpetuate their own ends.

Drawn up by the ruling left-right coalition and the opposition Greens, the resolution entitled “Remembrance and commemoration of the genocide of Armenians and other Christian minorities in 1915 and 1916” also carries the contested word throughout the text. The vote comes just over a year after President Joachim Gauck became Germany’s highest ranking official to describe the massacre as a “genocide”, drawing a fierce response from Turkey.

US Forces on Frontlines in New Iraqi Kurdish Offensive

As Iraqi Kurdistan’s Peshmerga launches a new offensive just east of the major ISIS city of Mosul, witnesses on the ground reported US troops loading into armored vehicles and heading eastward, toward the front lines. The Pentagon refused to confirm where the troops were headed.

The Pentagon would only describe it as an “advise and assist operation to help Kurdish Peshmerga forces.” It is noteworthy that the troops warned reporters present not to take pictures, after similar pictures emerged of US troops embedded with Syrian Kurdish forces, sparking a row with Turkey.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported at commondreams.org, on 18 April, 2016:

Signaling further escalation of U.S. military force in Iraq, U.S. Secretary of Defense Ash Carter announced Monday that 217 additional troops would be deployed to Iraq and that the U.S. will also be supplying Apache helicopters and millions in aid to Kurdish Peshmerga forces in an effort to fight ISIS. "The 217 additional forces will be a mixture of advisers, and troops providing protection for other forces, aviation support and fire support," reports the Hill, citing Pentagon sources. "They will increase the authorized troop level in Iraq from 3,870 to 4,087."

During the announcement, no mention was made of President Obama's repeated vows that the U.S. would never have "boots on the ground" in a combat operation in Iraq again. The news is unsurprising to many, particularly those critics who have noted the steady mission creep of U.S. forces in Iraq in the four and half years since the Iraq War was declared officially over in December 2011. But the announcement marks a milestone: it is the first time that officials have not attempted to argue that an escalation of force in Iraq does not break President Obama's insistent promises that ground troops would not be deployed for a combat operation in Iraq. President Obama defended his actions with this claim when he was criticized for starting the current escalation of U.S. military force in Iraq with a deployment of special forces in 2014.

The gentleman in the Oval Office, President Obama, has two official titles; those of President and Commander-in-Chief. But his presidency has the dubious distinction of holding another unofficial, but completely true, third title: Liar-in-Chief.

This makes any statement this President says about any issue, foreign or domestic, completely null and void; you simply cannot believe a word which he, or any of his Administration members, may say, period, end of discussion.

Huffington Post Removes Article Claiming Hillary Clinton Will Be Indicted

The liberal publication Huffington Post removed an article on its website Sunday claiming that the FBI plans to pursue an indictment against Hillary Clinton on federal racketeering charges.

But the article link now directs to a page that says “404” with a frownie face and the message “This is so embarrassing” after Huffington Post took the piece down Sunday.

A note at the bottom of the original article explains that “This post is hosted on the Huffington Post’s Contributor platform. Contributors control their own work and post freely to our site. If you need to flag this entry as abusive, send us an email.”

The Huffington Post’s media team and also HuffPo senior politics editor Sam Stein did not return requests for comment as of press time.

The FBI took over the RICO case against the Clinton Foundation after a Clinton-appointed judge tossed Larry Klayman's lawsuit out. My first thought was "Here is another FBI cover-up", but there is another possibility.

Hillary has become a major liability to the system. Charging her with racketeering with regard to the Clinton Foundation would eject her from the Presidential race and public life as a whole without risking the exposure of possible espionage in connection with her private email server!

UK TO STOCKPILE TANKS IN EASTERN EUROPE – REPORT

The British military may soon start stockpiling tanks and other heavy equipment in Eastern Europe as part of NATO's military beef up close to Russia's border. The decision may come at the upcoming NATO summit in Warsaw in July.

Citing a threat to the Baltic States and Poland, the North-Atlantic alliance plans to deploy as many as 4,000 additional troops in those countries. The initial plan was for the US to provide half, with Germany and the UK shouldering the rest of the cost. However, last week the Wall Street Journal reported that Washington would only provide one 1,000-strong battalion and wanted the European members of the alliance to spend more on their own defense.

POLICE ARE SECRETLY USING 'VACCINE' TO SPY ON COMMUNITY EVENTS, PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION

'Visual Analytics for Command, Control and Interoperability Environments (VACCINE) is co-led by Purdue and Rutgers University. The above video reveals how eager university professors and students are to help DHS spy on Americans.

Just like 'STINGRAY', police and Fusion Centers are secretly using VACCINE to spy on Americans.

"In 2012, VACCINE entered into a Memorandum of Agreement with the Ohio Fusion Center, managed by the Ohio State Highway Patrol (OSHP) and Ohio Homeland Security."

Keeping VACCINE a secret is what police and Fusion Center spying is all about. Check out the excerpt from page 26 of VACCINE's 2013 Annual Report.

"VACCINE has a well-established process for entering into Memorandums of Understanding and Non-Disclosure Agreements to ensure protection of the parties and data involved."
DHS is running a non-profit to spy on Americans.

Cleveland police in riot gear won’t wear body cameras during RNC

Many Cleveland police officers will not be wearing body cameras if protests turn violent during the Republican National Convention, officials said.

Police officials have told officers that a host of logistical issues, including an inability to attach the cameras to police riot gear, means officers will not be able to wear the devices.

The department says officers will use other methods to record police interactions with protesters and the public during the convention. But the head of a police union and the executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio expressed concern that the officers who will be thrust in the most volatile situations will not be wearing a device that is a deterrent for both violence against police and officer misconduct.

“To have those body cameras and not allow us to wear them is absolutely irresponsible,” Cleveland Police Patrolmen’s Association President Steve Loomis said Friday.

Webmaster's Commentary:

DOZENS SHOT OVER MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND AS THE COLLAPSE OF CHICAGO ACCELERATES

Chaos and violence threaten to spiral out of control in America’s third largest city, and nobody seems to have any idea how to solve the problem. After decades of control by the radical left, many parts of the “Windy City” have become rotting, decaying, gang-infested hellholes. Just like Detroit, the city of Chicago is rapidly becoming a joke to the rest of the world, but a horribly corrupt political culture likely stands in the way of any type of major reform any time soon. And just like much of the rest of the nation, a spirit of violence and civil unrest is rising in Chicago. So far this year, the number of shootings in Chicago is up 50 percent compared to the same time period last year, and that was before we even got to Memorial Day weekend. As of Sunday morning, at least 40 people had already been shot, and authorities were bracing for even more violence as the holiday weekend stretched on…

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, Chicago's Mayor, Rahm Emanuel, has been utterly impotent, in terms of fixing this.

IF he thought his becoming Mayor of Chicago would improve his CV, in terms of running for State Senator, National Senator, or Congressman from Illinois, his performance (or lack thereof), has really bitten him in a very tender portion of the human anatomy, and that means he has become an intense liability, and embarrassment, for the Democratic Party.

VA COPS ATTACK 71-YEAR-OLD VIETNAM VETERAN FOR WALKING THROUGH METAL DETECTOR WITHOUT SHOWING ID

Video surfaced this Memorial Day weekend showing police officers wrapping their arms around the neck of a 71-year-old Vietnam veteran and tackling him to the ground before handcuffing him inside a Veterans Administration clinic in El Paso.

His crime: He allegedly walked through a metal detector without first showing identification while having something on (or in) him that set the alarm off.

However, Jose Oliva said he placed his identification into the bucket with the rest of his belongings that were in his pocket to be screened.

And even if he didn’t, there was no need to abuse him as they did.

However, the VA police officers were found to have done nothing wrong, according to the Office of Security and Law Enforcement (OS&LE) and Law Enforcement Training Center, which oversees VA police.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable!!

Who the flip are these monsters, who consider it perfectly normal to choke and cuff an older Vet, who thought what he was doing was the absolutely correct protocol for entering the hospital for treatment?!?

The Sea Gypsy Philosopher: How DOES the world work?

The main tool that these rulers use is Secrecy. We are programmed early in life through our Conformity Indoctrination Factories (schools) to believe that people in leadership positions achieved their prominence because they were smarter and nobler than the rest of us. But in fact, most of the time those who ascend up through the Malignant Overlord food chain, do so because they are more ruthless and soul-less than those below them.

Here is a perfect example of that secrecy in action. My bachelor’s degree was in Political Science, so I studied historical events and world leaders quite thoroughly. But because almost all of the books that I had access to depict the West as an indisputable force for good, I could not find contrary evidence and then make my own decision.

Winston Churchill is the poster boy for this. Here was this supposed noble statesman and courageous cornerstone of British righteousness. That is how he was depicted to me by all of my professors. And that is how I would continue to perceive him if it were not for the Internet.

EU Passed Tax ID Numbers for Everyone

The EU is laying the groundwork for everyone in Europe to be given a new tax ID number in preparation for moving to electronic money. They are using a National Insurance number pretense to disguise the real objective. This scheme was passed by the Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee last week. This is another step in the federalization of Europe and even the British will have to comply. Naturally, nobody will report this in Britain because it obviously calls for a European Taxpayer Identification Number to keep track of every EU citizen, which include the British.

‘All we have to fear is fear itself’

It is irresponsible to enter the polling booth on June 23 without trying to assess the reasons why so many citizens in the UK want to leave the EU. That disillusionment with, and sense of detachment from, Brussels is becoming widespread all over the EU.

There is a sense that austerity applies to all but the rich. A belief that the social part of the social market has been cast aside; deep unease at appalling levels of unemployment in some EU countries; shock that the commission negotiated in total secrecy with America the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership...

FLASHBACK - 9/11: Cover For A Coup D'Etat?

September 11th 2001. The day that will forever live in infamy as the day when the reset button was hit on over two centuries of American history and allowed for the new doctrines of preemptive war, the domestic police state and the codifying of torture into the law of the land. The real meaning as well as the cause of 9/11 continues to resonate and be debated throughout the alternative media and the blogosphere despite the sanctimonious reverence given to it by the corporate, state controlled mainstream media where those who dare to even suggest that it was blowback are shouted down by angry demagogues standing atop their electronic soapboxes. That one single day more than anything else has been used as the justification the rise of the new American fascist state and the illegal wars of aggression that feed the colossus that is the military industrial complex.

Economist Paul Craig Roberts: Greece Must Leave the Eurozone to Regain Its Sovereignty

In Greece, the Syriza-led coalition government is now set to agree to new rounds of cuts and privatizations demanded by the country's lenders. Prior to its initial election in January 2015, Syriza had promised to abolish the country's loan agreements and austerity policies. Now, unemployment remains at record levels, and the young and educated continue to leave the country, while recent large-scale privatizations such as the sell-off of the port of Piraeus have been pushed through.

Britain’s Secret Drug-Running Operations in Colombia

Since the 1980s, when Britain’s Special Air Service (SAS) and Special Boat Service started operating in Colombia, special forces on all sides have been killing rival drug gangs and even counter-narcotics police units. This amounts to a proxy drug-smuggling network, which Britain has aided for decades. Cocaine is a huge industry, worth some $60 billion per annum. Coke is mainly a middle-class drug, used by politicians, models, film stars, and people in music, media, and other industries. More importantly, coke and other drug monies are untraceable and can be used for military black ops. A great deal is known about the US Central Intelligence Agency’s s role in drug running. Alfred McCoy’s The Politics of Heroin , Gary Webb’s Dark Alliance, and Douglas Valentine’s The Strength of the Wolf are vital exposés. Much less is known about MI6’s role.

Argentina’s last military dictator, 88-year-old former general Reynaldo Bignone, was today sentenced to 20 years in prison for his role in Operation Condor, under which an international death squad was set up by six South American military dictatorships during the 1970s and 80s. The plan allowed death squads from Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay to cross into one another’s territory to kidnap, torture and kill political opponents who had fled across the border.

Truthout interviews economist Paul Craig Roberts


With the upcoming presidential election in the US, do you believe any of the candidates offer any hope for a change of political, economic or foreign policy direction?

The government is not run by presidents. It's run by several hundred assistant secretaries, and they have nominal bosses called cabinet secretaries ... when you get elected, you're excited and want to get going and you've got to get all of these appointees through the Senate, you end up having to appoint the people the Senate's going to confirm. Otherwise, you never have a government. So unless the revolution also changed the Senate, so that they were to say, "Yes, let's appoint all of these people who will bring change, and undermine all of our relationships with the power structure, the people who give the political contributions to keep us in office, let's wreck all that and appoint somebody who's going to make change," that's not going to happen!

Goldman Sachs Is The Gift That Keeps On Giving... To The Clintons

By now we all know that Goldman Sachs is the gift that keeps on giving to the Clintons. Whether it's paying millions out for speeches, investing in family member's failing hedge fund ventures, or donating hundreds of thousands to the Clinton Foundation, Goldman seems to be keeping a close relationship with the family.

What's a more fun development to watch (other than to see Lloyd Blankfein lose money invested with a Clinton son-in-law) is how persistent The Intercept is being with Hillary about Goldman. Every chance it gets, The Intercept has a reporter asking Clinton about Goldman related items, and of course they never get an answer.

Earlier this year The Intercept caught up with Hillary and asked if the transcripts of the speeches given to Goldman would be released. Clinton's response was just to laugh of course, because as we all know, those will never be released... on purpose anyway.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears to me that Clinton's very wounded presidential campaign is about to become....more wounded.

Bernie Sanders may well be right, to contest this all the way; by November, Clinton may have to "retire" from public life, if certain revelations come forward, and are proven true.

Pleading for Peace in Chicago: ‘We Could Be Looking at a Blood Bath’

During Memorial Day weekend, this city reopens its Lake Michigan beaches, regular fireworks displays start at Navy Pier and the downtown streets and spruced-up Riverwalk are crowded with tourists.

But the holiday weekend is often seen here as the start of heightened violence, as well. That has been particularly worrying this year to community leaders and city officials, as they grapple with a rise in gun violence that has traumatized some neighborhoods and left city officials searching for new ways to subdue street crime.

“If something doesn’t change, if we don’t get jobs for these kids, if we don’t change the economic situation, I’m worried that we could be looking at a blood bath,” said the Rev. Corey Brooks, a pastor on the city’s South Side, a mostly African-American area where some of the shootings have been concentrated. “If something doesn’t happen, I fear that we’re potentially looking at one of the worst summers we’ve ever had.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks as though, from a standpoint of concretely and effectively addressing this issue, Rom Emanuel has been a colossal, epic fail as mayor of this city.

The alleged "educational" system in the city has utterly failed these kids; so have the drug and gang policies, at the state, city, and Federal levels.

Urban gangs give these kids the opportunity to make money, selling drugs, and give them a sense of identity which sometimes their (frequently broken) families can not.

I have to wonder; how well can these kids read and write a standard English?!? How are their math skills?!? And if they don't have proficiencies in reading and math, who is going to want to hire them, and for what kinds of jobs?

How many "shovel ready" jobs exist in Chicago which the construction unions will allow unskilled, non-union members take?!?

There is a hideous overlap of problems here, and I hope that the community can find effective coping strategies to keep the city calm this summer, but were I a betting woman, I would not bet on that happening.

Venezuela Drifts Into New Territory: Hunger, Blackouts and Government Shutdown

The courts? Closed most days. The bureau to start a business? Same thing. The public defender’s office? That’s been converted into a food bank for government employees.

Step by step, Venezuela has been shutting down.

This country has long been accustomed to painful shortages, even of basic foods. But Venezuela keeps drifting further into uncharted territory.

In recent weeks, the government has taken what may be one of the most desperate measures ever by a country to save electricity: A shutdown of many of its offices for all but two half-days each week.

But that is only the start of the country’s woes. Electricity and water are being rationed, and huge areas of the country have spent months with little of either.

Many people cannot make international calls from their phones because of a dispute between the government and phone companies over currency regulations and rates.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I cannot see how this can ultimately end well, or that Maduro will be able to remain in power that much longer.

But I do hope that the government which replaces that of Maduro will be able to meet the needs of the suffering Venezuelan people, and as quickly as humanly possible.

ANALYSISThe Zombie Voter Apocalypse: California Refuses to Admit Its Voter Fraud Problem

Hollywood has always loved making films about the walking dead, but in Southern California it appears they have a real life problem with “zombie” voters.

An investigation by CBSLA2 and KCAL9 found that hundreds of deceased persons are still on voter registration rolls in the area, and that many of these names have been voting for years in Los Angeles.

Julita Abutin, died in 2006 but voted in 2008, 2010, 2012, and 2014.

For example, John Cenkner died in 2003, according to Social Security Administration records, yet he voted in the 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008, and 2010 elections. His daughter told the station that she was “astounded” and couldn’t “understand how anybody” could get away with this.

The investigation revealed that 265 deceased persons voted in Southern California, 215 of them in Los Angeles County. Thirty-two were repeat voters, with eight posthumously-cast ballots each. One woman who died in 1988 has been voting for 26 years, including in the 2014 election.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

California's problem is hardly unique to the American voting process.

If you want to see something that will truly amaze you, find the video presentation "Hacking Democracy",about Bev Harris' journey through the electronic electoral process; this is an absolute eye-opener on how easy it is to hack American voting machines.

Silencing the United States as It Prepares for War

The breathtaking record of perfidy is so mutated in the public mind, wrote the late Harold Pinter, that it “never happened …Nothing ever happened. Even while it was happening it wasn’t happening. It didn’t matter. It was of no interest. It didn’t matter … “. Pinter expressed a mock admiration for what he called “a quite clinical manipulation of power worldwide while masquerading as a force for universal good. It’s a brilliant, even witty, highly successful act of hypnosis.”

Take Obama. As he prepares to leave office, the fawning has begun all over again. He is “cool”. One of the more violent presidents, Obama gave full reign to the Pentagon war-making apparatus of his discredited predecessor. He prosecuted more whistleblowers – truth-tellers – than any president. He pronounced Chelsea Manning guilty before she was tried. Today, Obama runs an unprecedented worldwide campaign of terrorism and murder by drone.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to politely remind Mr. Pilger that what Donald Trump has been criticising, and quite reasonably, are the effects of illegal immigration on this country, in terms of the financial burden it places on the US.

But on that issue of alleged "choice" of candidates, he is absolutely correct. The Kabuki-like process of American elections gives the people of this country the "illusion" that they, through the process, are at least somewhat in control of the national dialogue; they are not, in any meaningful way, whatsoever.

It is the corporations, who fund the election processes, at state and national levels, who ultimately chose the candidates.

And those candidates are vetted, not on their ability to lift the American people up, or address their needs and concerns; they are vetted on how well they can keep those promises to those corporations which fund them, and that - my friend - is the bottom line here.

Gates Foundation 'doubling down' on Common Core

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation says it is "doubling down" on its efforts to help teachers adapt to the Common Core education standards.

"Far too many districts report that identifying or developing Common Core-aligned materials is a challenge, meaning that teachers spend their time adapting or creating curriculum, developing lessons, and searching for supplemental materials," Gates Foundation CEO Sue Desmond-Hellmann writes in an open letter. "So, we're doubling down on our efforts to make sure teachers have what they need to make the most of their unique capabilities."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

reported at breitbart.com, last year:

Parents of high-ability students are demanding their San Francisco school board restore their courses for high achievers, which have been set aside while schools in the district switched over to the Common Core standards. Changes to the curriculum have included pushing Algebra I out of middle school and into the high school freshman year, as well as eliminating honors classes in both middle school and ninth grade, reports SFGate. Additionally, the evaluation process used by the district to identify high achievers—GATE (Gifted and Talented Education Program)—has been suspended since that system relied on state standardized tests, which were also postponed during the switch to Common Core. “The angry parents, however, accused the district of dumbing down instruction and ignoring or holding back smart students to focus on the needs of those at the bottom end of the achievement gap,” says a news report about a meeting of parents with the school board. Academic standards experts—some of whom wrote the old, highly-acclaimed California standards—warned several years ago that Common Core would “dumb down” curricula in the name of social justice and closing the achievement gap between minority and white students.

That achievement gap addressed in the above article can be successfully addressed in many other ways.

But the cold, hard reality here is that when people do not learn critical thinking, or have the ability to analyze information, they will swallow, literally, anything the government has to say, and that is why the Bill & Melinda Gates are "doubling down" on shoving this program down kids', and their parents' throats.

A passive, medically doped up American population will not issue even a murmur of dissent, no matter how economically and soul-crippling those decisions coming out of DC may be which affect them, and that is the ultimate goal of Common Core; the creation of a populace unable to think, and totally accepting of every governmental edict, no matter how evil or morally wrong.
