"All required measures to stabilize the ISS have been taken," it said.

Liberalism Run Amok: “The Saintly City” Going Through Hell

• Minority-dominated school incorporates “white privilege” curriculum for staff, teachers.

• Parents fight back against social engineering.

Nestled on the east bank of the Mississippi River, Saint Paul, Minnesota, whose motto is “The most livable city in America,” may soon be in the market for a new tag line. It seems a school in Minnesota’s capital city, frustrated with “achievement and disciplinary issues involving black students” has contracted with and paid millions to a San Francisco-based “educational” organization whose main purpose is to whip white teachers for being, well, too white.

Secret Service evacuates WH press briefing room

Officials told all reporters to evacuate the White House press briefing room and the North Lawn on Tuesday afternoon. No reason was immediately given.

White House journalists have been moved into a tunnel that leads from the White House to another building. Secret Service has covered all robotic cameras operated by CNN on the North Lawn and in the briefing room.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The story is that someone phoned both the White House and the Congress with a bomb threat. This feels like a propaganda stunt to prove why total phone surveillance must be allowed to continue.

Typhus appeared suddenly among the German troops only after they invaded the Soviet Union, and through the troops spread back into Germany.

Disgusting!! Anti-Russian propaganda appearing in Dutch school textbooks

The following two images were found on page 67 of the workbook, Chapter 7: countries without democracy. The first image shows Russia as the 'evil' country trying to take Ukraine, while Europe is pictured lending a 'helping' hand. One of the questions students are asked, is: "What is Russia doing, and what is Europe doing in this picture?" Well, that isn't difficult to answer: Evil-looking Russia is obviously trying to devour poor Ukraine, while friendly Europe is looking on concerned!

The US Government’s Not-So-Secret Support for Al Qaeda and ISIS

The DIA document was too big an anti-Obama scoop for Fox News not to cover at all. Yet they still managed to give the story a pro-interventionist spin. They did so by focusing on Obama’s alleged low estimation of the threat of ISIS and the Libyan jihadists, and how the predictions in the report belie that low estimation. Yet, they completely glossed over the report’s claim that the predicted rise of ISIS was a result of support for the Syrian opposition by the west and its allies.

Leap of Faith: Israel’s National Religious and the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

Although the landscape of Israeli-Palestinian peacemaking might bear resemblance to that of a decade past, one change is unmistakable: the right is stronger within Israel and the national religious are stronger within the right. This has consequences, some already felt, whether in politics (the rise of Naftali Bennett’s Jewish Home); negotiations (Prime Minister Netanyahu’s commitment to submit any putative agreement to a popular referendum); or on the ground (the rise in confrontational tactics among some young West Bank settlers). Adjusting to this reality means neither ignoring the national-religious agenda nor surrendering to it. It means acknowledging its importance and understanding ideological nuances within it. If the goal is a peace agreement that garners maximum legitimacy, including among the national religious, attention will have to be paid to the substance of the deal, the way in which it is ratified and eventually implemented.

Franklin Graham is pulling bank accounts from Wells Fargo for featuring same-sex couple in ad

Franklin Graham is calling on Christians to boycott corporations that feature same-sex relationships in their commercials. And he says he’ll do his part by moving all the bank accounts for his two ministries out of Wells Fargo because of its ad featuring a lesbian couple.

“This is one way we as Christians can speak out – we have the power of choice,” Graham wrote on Facebook over the weekend. “Let’s just stop doing business with those who promote sin and stand against Almighty God’s laws and His standards. Maybe if enough of us do this, it will get their attention.”

The Anti-Defamation League, which released the poll results last month, sees in these numbers a victory against stereotyping. Actually, it just shows how dumb America has gotten.

Obama blasts Supreme Court for accepting challenge to health care law

President Obama assaulted the nation's top court and seemed to criticize the U.S. legal system as a whole Monday, with the former constitutional law professor declaring that the Supreme Court was wrong to even accept a challenge to his signature health care reform law and deriding the fact that an “individual district court judge” was able to derail his deportation amnesty.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obama's getting too big for his britches! He seems to forget that as the head of the Executive Branch, his job is to execute the will of the Congress, but only after the Supreme Court verifies the Constitutionality of the law. The President presides, he does not dictate. Obama has forgotten that simple rule.

Election result heralds a new Turkey, but not the one Erdo?an wanted

But on Monday Erdo?an stared defeat in the face. He had forsaken his famously intuitive feel for the popular mood, miscalculated in his highly aggressive election campaign and paid the price. Even if his Justice and Development party (AKP) retained the biggest parliamentary presence with 41% of the vote, many of his longstanding supporters deserted him, concluding that he was out of touch with their lives and the mood of the country.

And in what turned into an unforeseen carnival of pluralism and liberalism, voters hoping to rein in the president turned to a new pro-Kurdish party that oozed youthful exuberance and optimism during the election campaign.

Canada was ready to abandon 1948 accord if UN didn’t remove ‘cultural genocide’ ban, records reveal

In the aftermath of the Second World War, as the United Nations debated a ban on “cultural genocide” in its 1948 Genocide Convention, Canada urged its delegate to try to spike it.

Early drafts included this controversial concept, now used by Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission to describe residential schools policy. It was known as Article Three, and if it was not removed from the final draft, Canada was willing to abandon the entire Genocide Convention, records show.

Under Stephen Harper, we have continued to bid goodbye to far too many of our home-grown success stories. How will we ever recover these assets when they are gone?

German Television Exposes Holocaust Lies: Historic Broadcast Shocks Germany

In one of the most amazing events to occur in occupied Germany since the second world war Historian Ursula Haverbeck made history in a defiant interview in which she openly trashed the very basis of the lie upon which all modern European social democratic states have been built. The elderly historian, brought into question the moral integrity of all Western political parties and academic institutions, exposing the official account of the second world war and the Holocaust for the lie it was on a television station which is the second largest in the world after Britain’s BBC.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Immediately afterwards, the German police kicked down Ursula's door and arrested her.

Peace between Israel, Palestine could bring $173bn in economic benefits – study

The study, conducted by US-based research organization RAND Corp, involved two years of research into the costs of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Some 200 officials were interviewed from the region and elsewhere.

Approved last year, the details were only recently worked out a few weeks ago as to how the funds would be dispersed.

Carbon Credits: The Future World Currency

You know, those predatory loans globalists offer 3rd world countries knowing they will never be able to produce a high enough GDP to even service the interest on the debt, let alone the principle? Then just like with every other situation in regards to this scam, once they fail to pay back the loans, the IMF and World Bank take control of all the resources and production, and give it back to industrialized countries’ corporate entities.

Finally, as a solution, a conference or summit is formed, usually by none other than, the U.N. The conference is held and blame is put on the super powers for the “rise” in greenhouse gasses and ocean temperatures.

The solution? Implement one of two options, or possibly a mix of the two.

American Treachery in the Attack on the USS Liberty Much Deeper Than Previously Assumed

It has long been assumed that Israel’s deliberate attack on the USS Liberty was just another of her made-to-order false flag operations done simply for the purpose of dragging an unwilling America into a Middle East war on the side of the Jewish state. However, new information uncovered by former BBC investigative journalist Peter Hounam reveals that America–and more specifically the administration of Lyndon Johnson–was not as much the unsuspecting victim in all of this that she has claimed these last 40 years. Based on relatively new evidence, the attack on the Liberty was actually part of a much larger plan and that the Liberty incident was just one domino in a series of them that had as the ultimate goal a real-live shooting war between the US and the USSR.

Pfizer Report Warns of Possible Zoloft and Birth Defect Link

A Pfizer Inc. report shows a scientist warned executives last year about a potential link between the anti-depressant drug Zoloft and birth defects and recommended changes to the medication’s safety warning.

The document from a Pfizer drug-safety official might complicate the company’s efforts to fend off lawsuits brought by parents of children with malformed hearts. Pfizer has consistently rejected suggestions Zoloft caused newborn abnormalities and said Monday the document was taken out of context by lawyers suing the company.

Pfizer faces more than 1,000 suits alleging the company sold Zoloft, once the U.S.’s most-prescribed anti-depressant, knowing it could cause cardiac abnormalities in newborns. The company successfully defended in the first lawsuit to go to trial in April, before the disclosure of the document last week in a Philadelphia case.

Former Italian President: CIA & Mossad Were Behind 9/11

An older article from Salem News, but a good reminder: “Former Italian President Francesco Cossiga, who died in 2010, the man who revealed the existence of Operation Gladio, told Italy’s oldest and most widely read newspaper in 2007 that the 9-11 terrorist attacks were run by the CIA and Mossad, and that this was common knowledge among global intelligence agencies.

Webmaster's Commentary:

People behind BDS are also responsible for 9/11 attack, Israeli centrist tells NY synagogue

Yair Lapid, the former Israeli finance minister and head of a centrist Israeli political party (who is just as hawkish as the government but in opposition), made news this weekend at the Jerusalem Post conference in New York saying that the BDS — Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions– campaign against Israel is a puppet of Hamas and describing BDS leaders as “outright antisemites” linked to the “Palestinian Mufti who collaborated with the Nazis.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Lapid (and Israel's) claim that the Palestinians collaborated with the Nazis is based on a single photograph taken of Adolph Hitler meeting with the grand mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin.

The implication is that this meeting "proves" Palestinians are all closet Nazis.

But, let's look at some other photos.

Hitler with Pope Pius 12th. Does this picture mean all Catholics are closet Nazis?

Hitler with King Edward and Wallace Simpson. Does this photograph mean all British subjects are closet Nazis?

Hitler with France's Henry Philippe Petain. Does this photograph mean all the French are closet Nazis?

Hitler with British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain. Does this photograph mean all British subjects are closet Nazis?

Hitler with President Hoover. Does this photograph mean all Americans are closet Nazis?

The fact is that as a head of state, Hitler was required by diplomatic protocol to meet a lot of people and have his picture taken with them. It is just part of the job. And as WW2 proved, not everyone Hitler was photographed with agreed with him.

Washington’s Death Squads

In a lengthy article published Sunday, the New York Times provided a glimpse into the criminal and grisly methods employed by Seal Team 6, a secret unit within the Pentagon’s Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC).

The unit was made famous by the phony accounts of its assassination of Osama bin Laden in Pakistan, cover stories that were blown last month by veteran journalist Seymour Hersh, who exposed the operation as the cold-blooded murder of an unarmed and decrepit individual who had been fingered by Pakistani intelligence.

What the Times account makes clear—whatever the newspaper’s intentions and its undoubted vetting of its material with the Pentagon and the White House—is that in the pursuit of its global interests, the United States government has become ever more dependent upon the murderous operations of secret death squads.

5 Ways Powerful People Trick You Into Hating Underdogs

Let's say that tomorrow you are elected Secret Ruler of the USA, a position that gives you total power over the government, economy, and the culture at large -- everything that hippies refer to as "the system." Now, your first job is to not get beheaded by rioting peasants, which means your first job is really to maintain "stability" (i.e., "keeping things mostly the way they are").

Immediately you'll find that you're facing a never-ending stream of protests from disgruntled groups who say they're being treated unfairly or otherwise getting left out -- this group over here is upset that somebody got abused by the police; this other bunch is demanding better wages or something. How do you handle it? Sure, you could crush their movements with an iron fist, using violence to kill, intimidate or arrest their most vocal members. But that can backfire, often turning them into martyrs and proving them right in the process -- you've seen Star Wars; somebody always finds the exhaust port.

Hillary's plans to stuff the ballot box

Since Hillary won’t have the youthful exuberance that propelled Obama to his unlikely double victory, she plans to build a whole new electorate out of people who didn’t vote for Obama. That’s the gist of her speech in Houston last week, which her friends at MSNBC called a “far-reaching vision for expanding access to the ballot box.”

Who are the new voters to whom Hillary wants to give “access to the ballot box”? They include felons and non-citizens, along with anyone who can’t prove identity, citizenship, or residence within the voting precinct.

She also plans to harvest millions of new votes by expanding the dangerous practices of same-day registration and early voting, which enable Democrats to badger, berate, bribe, or bamboozle reluctant low-information voters to the polls. Democratic Party and union workers can identify reluctant voters and harass them until the party worker verifies that they have actually cast their ballot.

The court Monday refused to hear an appeal of a US Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that upheld a San Francisco ordinance requiring owners in their own home either to store firearms in a locked container or disable them with trigger locks when not in use. Gun owners can wear the gun in a holster, but other than that, the gun must be put away.

3 Hours and 47 Minutes After Obama Says He’ll Sign Law BANNING Bulk Collection, DOJ Asks Secret Court to CONTINUE Bulk Collection

The Obama administration has asked a secret surveillance court to ignore a federal court that found bulk surveillance illegal and to once again grant the National Security Agency the power to collect the phone records of millions of Americans for six months.

The legal request, filed nearly four hours after Barack Obama vowed to sign a new law banning precisely the bulk collection he asks the secret court to approve, also suggests that the administration may not necessarily comply with any potential court order demanding that the collection stop.

Opposition accuses Kiev of trying to cut Donbass off from Ukraine

Instead of implementing the Minsk agreements on the basis of Ukraine’s territorial integrity, Kiev is doing everything to cut off the Donbass region from the rest of the country, Ukraine’s Opposition Bloc party said on Monday.
The opposition party recalls in its statement that the authorities in Kiev have repeatedly promised that the Constitutional Commission would submit to parliament a draft reform providing for decentralization, an important provision of the Minsk agreements. "The Opposition Bloc demanded precisely this ahead of the last parliamentary week, but to no avail. The promise given by the authorities has remained unfulfilled," the document says.

Rand Paul Completely Ignores Anniversary of USS LIBERTY Massacre by Israel

Presidential hopeful Rand Paul callously ignored the 48th anniversary of Israel's attack on the USS Liberty yesterday. On social media, Paul tried to hawk copies of his new book, promoted an upcoming congressional baseball game, and repeatedly boasted that he now has '2 million followers on Facebook!' Rand Paul regularly posts about all sorts of obscure anniversaries and events, such as when he celebrated 'National Hug Day!' earlier this year. The U.S.S. Liberty slaughter, however, where 34 American sailors were killed and many others permanently maimed and injured, doesn't warrant a mention from the allegedly pro-American senator. Rand Paul often gives speeches oddly noting that 'Israelis Don't Burn American Flags' and even admitted in a 2013 Senate speech that he visits with Israeli groups daily." Paul also insists that Israel is "one friend that never leaves our side, has never wavered." [See our site RandPaulZionist.com for much, much more on this topic.]

Russia, India Set to Jointly Produce Defense Equipment

Russia is India’s top partner for the joint production of arms.
It’s chosen top partner seems to be Russia which is its traditional number one arms supplier, as well as a BRICS partner. As a result Russia-India military ties may be set to rise to the next level. India’s Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj:
Our military-technical cooperation with Russia was based on a ‘buyer-seller’ relationship – they sold arms, and we bought them. But this [cooperation] has now changed. Russia has decided to produce weapons in India, as well as to jointly manufacture arms with us, transferring the corresponding technologies.
Russia and India ties are based on mutual trust. Russia is our time-tested friend.

UN’s Ban Ki-moon caves in, takes Israel off list of serious child abusers

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has caved in to pressure from Israel and the United States and taken the Israeli military off an official list of serious violators of children’s rights, in this year’s report on children in armed conflict.

In doing so, Ban rejected an official recommendation from his own Special Representative for Children and Armed Conflict Leila Zerrougui and numerous human rights organizations and child rights defenders.

Ban’s act is particularly egregious since the report found that the number of children killed in the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip in 2014, at 557, was the third highest only after Iraq and Afghanistan and ahead of Syria.

CIA chief makes secret visit to Israel ahead of Iran deal

Instead of Training to Solve Crimes, Cops Team Up with the Military to Prep for War

While the media was focused on Bruce Jenner’s transformation into Caitlyn Jenner last week they missed the further transformation of the Indiana State Police into a militarized police Force.

Together with the Indiana National Guard they weren’t practicing solving crimes, they were practicing Fast Rope techniques from a Blackhawk helicopter.

The above video contains actual footage which the Free Thought Project secured from the department of Defense, of the exercises.

Unlike in the recent special forces exercise that just occurred in Michigan, using live ordinance at an abandoned public school, this exercise took place at the Muscatatuck Urban Training Center.

Discarding their traditional police uniforms they adorned military fatigues and we’re fully equipped to kill.

Who shot who in Waco biker bloodbath? Mystery as witnesses say semi-automatic guns favored by POLICE did most of the shooting in contested accounts of battle

Six witnesses have described a melee that began with a few pistol shots but was dominated by semi-automatic gunfire.

Waco police have said they returned fire after being shot at, and call the witnesses' depictions of events incorrect.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The only ones at the scene with semi-automatic assault rifles were the police. Only one such weapon was confiscated from the victims and that was found in the locked trunk of a car after the shooting was over. This is starting to look like a repeat of the shootout at the Empire State Building in which 9 bystanders were shot ... all by the NYPD!

Kiev Rebuffs Rebel Offer to Keep Donbass a Part of Ukraine

Leaders of the self-proclaimed republics have submitted proposed changes to the Ukrainian constitution granting Donbass autonomy, but not separation, from Ukraine. But Kiev won’t even sit down at the negotiation table.
Korrespondent reports that representatives from the two republics, Vladislav Deynego and Denis Pushilin, have submitted proposed changes to the Ukrainian constitution which recognize Donbass as an autonomous region of Ukraine.
But Kiev won’t even consider the proposed changes. The Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada, Vladimir Groysman, declared that they would discuss constitutional changes only with “legally elected” representatives of Donbass.
It’s clear what Kiev wants: Total submission from the rebel republics.
In other words: It looks like more war.

Kiev forces pull Grad rocket systems close to engagement line — DPR

Kiev’s forces are pulling heavy weaponry close to the engagement line with the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR), spokesman for the DPR Defence Ministry Eduard Basurin said on Tuesday.
"The DPR reconnaissance continues registering the facts of the redeployment of the Ukrainian army’s personnel and combat hardware. Two Grad batteries comprising 12 multiple launch rocket systems were seen redeployed towards Slaviansk," the Donetsk News Agency quoted the DPR defence spokesman as saying.
The DPR reconnaissance also reported about the movement of one 2S7 Pion self-propelled artillery gun in the south-western direction through the village of Konstantinovka and the detection of a DANA artillery piece and a BM-21 Grad system in the communities of Tsukurino and Lebedinskoye, the spokesman said.
The DPR Defence Ministry said on Monday the pro-Kiev forces had redeployed Grad multiple launch rocket systems to the area of the settlement of Andreyevka near Donetsk.

BEX ALERT - Gary Webb was no journalism hero, despite what ‘Kill the Messenger’ says

The Hollywood version of his story — a truth-teller persecuted by the cowardly and craven mainstream media — is pure fiction. But Webb was a real person who wrote a real story, a three-part series called “Dark Alliance,” in August 1996 for the San Jose Mercury News, one of the flagship newspapers of the then-mighty Knight Ridder chain. Webb’s story made the extraordinary claim that the Central Intelligence Agency was responsible for the crack cocaine epidemic in America. What he lacked was the extraordinary proof. But at first, the claim was enough. Webb’s story became notable as the first major journalism cause celebre on the newly emerging Internet. The black community roiled in anger at the supposed CIA perfidy.

Then it all began to come apart. The New York Times, The Washington Post and the Los Angeles Times, in a rare show of unanimity, all wrote major pieces knocking the story down for its overblown claims and undernourished reporting.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a classic WP hatchet-job. I am not surprised they closed the comments. They excoriate the author of this tripe, Jeff Leen, whose purpose was not so much to tarnish the memory of Webb but to keep the lid on the secret Webb exposed, which was that the CIA is the biggest illegal drug smuggler in the nation (if not the world).

Leen's entire dismissal of Webb's story is based on the claim that all of the corporate media wrote articles denying that the CIA was involved in the drug trade. Setting aside the fact that the CIA controls the corporate media through Operation MOCKINGBIRD, we only need remember that the corporate media were unanimous that Saddam had nuclear weapons and that humans are warming the Earth!

Moscow stands against unilateral actions for Trans-Caspian gas pipe construction

Environmental safety should be a top priority during the construction of the Trans-Caspian gas pipeline, which Turkmenistan and Azerbaijan would like to lay between their shores with the EU and US support, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Tuesday.
The opinion of all the Caspian Sea littoral states on this project should be taken into account, the Russian diplomat said.
"The problem of building trunk pipelines in the Caspian Sea, which is a unique water reservoir in all regards, should be primarily seen through the prism of the environment and only after that from the economic point of view," the Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman said.

Donald Rumsfeld: George W. Bush Was Wrong About Iraq

Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, one of the staunchest defenders of the Iraq war, said in an interview with the Times of London that his boss, former President George W. Bush, was wrong to try to create democracy onto Iraq.

“The idea that we could fashion a democracy in Iraq seemed to me unrealistic. I was concerned about it when I first heard those words,” Rumsfeld said, adding, “I’m not one who thinks that our particular template of democracy is appropriate for other countries at every moment of their histories.”

Webmaster's Commentary:

Ex-Fox29 anchor in court: My daughters will think I'm a racist

An all-white jury in Philadelphia is being asked to determine who can say the racial epithet known as "the n-word."

Along the way, they also will have to decide whether it’s acceptable to ever use it within the confines of a news-gathering operation.

On Monday, a racial discrimination suit filed by a former Fox29 anchorman opened in U.S. District Court in Philadelphia.

Eight years ago, Tom Burlington was a weekend co-anchor on the station when he uttered the n-word in an internal staff meeting.

Moscow turns down IAEA draft annual report due to IAEA’s position on Crimea — FM

Russia turns down the draft annual report of the International Atomic Energy Agency [IAEA] over the latter’s position on Crimea and Sevastopol, head of the Russian delegation and ambassador at large Grigory Berdennikov said on Monday at a session of the IAEA Board of Governors in Vienna.
"We paid attention to the fact that the supplement to the draft report has an assertion that Sevastopol was allegedly party of Ukraine over the reporting period [in 2014], which is not true," the diplomat said. "It is a false assertion that ignores that fact that following an illegal state coup in Kiev in February 2014 people living in the then Crimean autonomous republic, including the city of Sevastopol, voted at a referendum for reunification with Russia. After that, we officially informed the IAEA secretariat that Crimea’s units were taken under Russian jurisdiction and suggested the Agency should apply guarantee under our agreement on guarantees."
