THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

"The NSS [National Security State] represents and serves the interests of a tiny elite. Its economic policies of "trickling-up", enforced by the machine gun, are rationalized on the ground that growth in the long run will trickle down to the lower orders. This is a self-serving ideology designed mainly to allow the western public to think well of themselves and their own country." -- Edward S. Herman, economist, author, and US media and foreign policy critic

Woman Arrested For Posting Selfie With Gun on Facebook

Henrico, VA– Be careful what you post on Facebook, or you could be charged with a crime over your smiling selfie. This is something 26-year-old Kristin Holmes learned the hard way this week when she was arrested and charged with a crime she referred to as “Facebook Thugging,” for posting of a photo of herself with a handgun. It’s not just photos that can get you in trouble though, the Fraternal Order of Police is warning that in Virginia, you can be charged with this crime even for swearing.

US Oil Celebrates Election of Former Nigerian Dictator

A massive series of NATO War Games simulations took place at the Operation Flintlock 2015 AFRICOM Conference, where thousands of US and African soldiers began intensive training programs. As the conference concluded, Boko Haram declared its allegiance with ISIS. Major media latched onto that story and ran with it like a constipated greyhound. A report published by one of the world’s largest audit, tax, and advisory firms, KPMG Africa, a subsidiary of KPMG International, outlined in explicit detail the plans and tax incentives of razing the impoverished and unstable region for oil and natural gas.

Treasury Department refuses answer Congress on $3Billion Unauthorized Payments

(NaturalNews) The Executive Branch of the US Federal Government is running wild, without any standards to go by, without any limitations. That's because the US Constitution has been turned into toilet paper. Every single right in the Bill of Rights is now routinely folded up, used to wipe politician's buttocks, and then flushed down Big Government toilets. The US Treasury Department does not even get authorization from the House of Representatives to spend money anymore.

This is a perfect display of government gone wild. The US Treasury Department is taking billions of dollars from hard-working Americans and funneling it to the health insurance industry. Obamacare should be called "a perpetual bailout of the failing medical system."

Yemen – the Big Picture

As usual, western media are deliberately confusing in communicating on the latest Mid-East conflict which eventually led to the recent atrocious bombing of Yemen by the US-directed Saudi alliance, including Qatar and other Gulf monarchies. They are proxies, to be sure, for their Washington masters. My heart is bleeding for Yemen, a country of warm and generous people I got to know well, working with them in the 1990s and early 2000s.

Yemen, like Ukraine, is just another square on the geopolitical chess board which the exceptional nation aims to dominate.

Another Killer Deal for the Defense Industry - Human rights take a backseat to hegemony—again

The American public seems not to clearly recognize that since “troops on the ground” went out of fashion, its government has devoted itself to arming terrorists and tyrants to do its bidding by proxy. This is no accident. Since the majority of the population seems to disagree with Washington policy choices—such as impoverishing its citizenry to pay for imperial wars in far-flung lands—and since it often responds to poll queries with alarmingly socialist views, pains must taken to deceive it. This is an ever more sophisticated practice, now requiring banks of slick public relations professionals and a colossal media budget to ensure the “media saturation” called for by all good professors of propaganda.

Ukrainians Protest U.S. Police-State the Only Available Way

The racist-fascist (or “nazi”) anti-Russian regime that the U.S. installed in a February 2014 coup does not permit protest (except from its small right: the few overt nazis demanding even more militancy); so, the only way that thousands of Ukrainians were safely able to express their loathing of the U.S. Embassy in Kiev on April 1st was by mooing as a non-verbal expression against the regime-controllers inside the compound, telling them, in effect, “We are not cattle.” However, at the end of the protest, someone managed to throw cow-dung at the compound.

In December 2011, the United States sold $30 billion worth of weapons to the Monarchy of Saudi Arabia.

This fact, and numerous others about the Kingdom have received scant attention from proponents of the Saudi attack on Yemen. Here’s a look at five things about Saudi Arabia that US officials and the establishment media are neglecting to talk about, as Saudi bombs continue to drop on the people of Yemen with the support of the United States:

“He merely said ‘Is this what our superintendent gets paid all that money for, to write bathroom policy?’” Ray said, adding that the annual show traditionally pokes fun at teachers and school policies.

Harvey Weinstein accused of groping Italian model, 22, in his office at Tribeca Film Center: sources

Movie mogul Harvey Weinstein is accused of groping a 22-year-old Italian model he met at the red-carpet premiere of his Radio City “New York Spring Spectacular.”

The model told cops that the Oscar-winning Hollywood producer sexually abused her after coaxing her to his Manhattan office on the pretext of talking business, sources told the Daily News.

The woman informed cops that Weinstein, a married 63-year-old father of five, groped her breasts and reached up her skirt around 6 p.m. Friday in his third-floor office at the Tribeca Film Center on Greenwich St., sources said.

“He asked if her breasts were real before touching them,” a police source said. “She asked him to stop, and he put his hand up her skirt. He asked for a kiss; she responded ‘No.’”

63 police inquiries, 2,100 victims... the child abuse dossier that shames Britain after horrific explosion of historic sex cases since Savile

The unprecedented scale of current police investigations into historic child abuse can be revealed for the first time today, as senior officers warn of the challenge of investigating alleged crimes that go back decades.

An investigation by The Mail on Sunday has revealed that:

Forces around Britain are carrying out more than 60 major investigations into sex attacks and beatings in schools, children’s homes and churches dating back to the 1950s.

More than 2,000 people have come forward in the wake of the Jimmy Savile scandal to say they were abused at institutions or by public figures, including prominent politicians.

A staggering 1,200 of the alleged victims were inmates of just one institution, a northern borstal once visited by the late Home Secretary Leon Brittan and praised for its ‘short, sharp shock’ regime. He himself is now at the centre of a number of abuse claims.

Good News and Bad News


For Israel, there's good news and bad news after Iran deal

Although Iran's nuclear project will be monitored for at least a decade, the deal also grants it recognition as a power to be reckoned with.

HAARETZ: The framework agreement crafted Thursday in Lausanne between Iran and the world powers is a historic step. After nearly 13 years of on-and-off negotiations, a deal aims to stop the progress of Iran’s nuclear program for an extended period.
***
From an Israeli perspective, the relatively good news is that Iran’s nuclear project will be monitored for at least a decade. For now, it seems that during this time Iran’s chances of developing a nuclear weapon will decline significantly.
***
The bad news is not only that Iran’s economy, which has taken a double-barreled blow from both sanctions and declining oil prices, is expected to recover quickly, but that Iran has also achieved recognition from the world powers for two elements it greatly needs. The powers now acknowledge, indirectly, that Iran is a nuclear threshold state, and no less importantly, they accept Iran as a force to be reckoned with throughout the Middle East.

Palestinians clash with Daesh in Yarmouk Camp

Intense clashes continue between Palestinian armed factions and Daesh, who took over most of the Palestinian refugee camp of Yarmouk near the Syrian capital, Damascus.

Daesh militants stormed the camp on April 1, apparently in tandem with rivals from the al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front, even though the two groups have fought bloody battles against each other in other parts of Syria.

The terrorists attacked Yarmouk, home to Palestinian refugees since 1957 and located on the edge of the Syrian capital, in an attempt to kill a reconciliation deal between Palestinian armed factions inside the camp and more moderate groups seeking to keep the site away from the crisis in Syria.

In effort to boost ticket revenue, LA deploys even more confusing parking signs

Councilman Paul Krekorian, who chairs the city's finance and budget committee, said the signs would have to be "insanely successful" at reducing tickets for the city to see an impact on parking citation revenue, which has grown from $110 million in 2003 to about $161 million last year.

Tepco: Technology To Decommission Fukushima Needs To Be Invented

Richard Wilcox, PhD
Activist Post

Anyone with a brain could have told you back in 2011 at the time of the Fukushima nuclear triple meltdown that Tokyo Electric (Tepco) was lying about the true condition of the Fukushima Nuclear Power Plant No. 1 (“Dai-ichi”). Four years later, Tepco officials have finally admitted that it may not be technologically possible to decommission the plant.

In the case of Tepco (Tipkill), the facts are overwhelming that not only was Fukushima an “accident waiting to happen” but rather “a foregone conclusion.” The location of the plant on soft fill soil at a low altitude near the ocean in a tsunami zone was the first big mistake of the planners, who must have graduated from the Homer Simpson school of donutology. Cost-cutting, corruption and incompetence is part of the well-documented history, which ultimately led to the triple meltdowns...

Polish airport used by CIA obtains millions in EU funds

A small airport in north-eastern Poland used by the CIA to fly in kidnapped detainees for torture at a nearby intelligence training camp has received over €30 million in EU funds.

The EU money is part of a larger €48.5 million sum to turn the former military airstrip into an international commercial airport known as Szymany.

The Brussels-executive has no oversight because the amounts taken from the European regional development fund are too small for it to have a direct stake.

It is instead administered and managed by regional authorities who diverted all the funds into a company they set up after obliging a local Polish-Israeli businessman, who had been instrumental in securing the EU grant, to hand over the airport’s lease.

Nurses Across the U.S. are Taking a Stand Against Forced Flu Vaccines

Experienced nurses across the United States are choosing to lose their jobs rather than submit to forced mandatory flu vaccinations. This began last flu season, in 2012, and we reported many stories of brave nurses standing up for their rights and refusing to submit to mandatory flu vaccinations as a requirement to keeping their jobs. (See: Brave Nurses Lose Jobs to Stand on Principle and Refuse Forced Vaccinations)

For example, Dreonna Breton, a registered nurse in Pennsylvania, lost her job recently due to refusing the vaccine based on medical reasons. She is pregnant, and has a history of miscarriages. Her doctor advised her NOT to get the flu vaccine, but her hospital refused her exemption and fired her. (See also: Flu Vaccines NOT Tested on Pregnant Women)
