Leader Of “Fight For $15” Movement Is Paid Almost $150,000 A Year By Powerful Union

The lead organizer for the “Fight for $15” movement isn’t an underpaid fast food worker, but rather a well-paid labor union activist.
“No I’m not,” Kendall Fells said when asked by researchers with conservative nonprofit America Rising Squared if he was paid to attend the “March on McDonald’s” he organized this week in Chicago. As it turns out, though, Fells is paid for his activist activities — and he gets paid a lot.

JOHN PILGER: THE WHITE HELMETS ARE A “COMPLETE PROPAGANDA CONSTRUCT”

This was my email to John Pilger on the 27/9/2016. I have no idea if it had any influence upon the comments that Pilger made during his interview but the fact that such a respected and admired analyst has finally, publically exposed the White Helmets – as a primarily British-funded, propaganda, shadow state construct, engineered to facilitate intervention in Syria, should be a powerful ally for independent media in their efforts to reveal the pivotal aspects of the dirty war being waged against Syria.

“I am writing to you as a journalist who believes in all the values you have represented to them for the years they have followed you.

I have, for some time, been working to expose, alongside many others, the “Dirty War on Syria“. I have recently returned from a 4-week journey around Syria, visiting Aleppo and meeting with President Assad, as part of the US Peace Council Delegation. Three weeks of my trip were, however, as an independent journalist.

The Nobel Peace Prize lost any and all legitimacy when it got awarded to the completely morally vile Henry Kissinger.

Portland suspect in 2 slayings on train is known for hate speech

This is a rather fishy incident.

His criminal record includes felony robbery, kidnapping and weapon convictions, records show.

Christian was a participant in the April 29 "March for Free Speech" on 82nd Avenue in Montavilla. He posted an OregonLive video of the event to his Facebook page, referencing himself as "the Lizard King" as he walked among fellow protesters holding American flags and "Trump Make America Great Again" flags.

The True Cost of Israel

American aid to Israel is something like a pot of gold that keeps on giving. Both sides in the discussion would probably agree that the domestic Israel Lobby has been instrumental in sustaining the high level of aid ... Since the foundation of the state of Israel in 1948, it has been "the largest cumulative recipient of U.S. foreign assistance since World War II," according to the Congressional Research Service. The United States has provided Israel with $233.7 billion in adjusted for inflation aid between 1948 through the end of 2012, reports [the Israeli daily newspaper] Haaretz ... Israel also benefits in other ways, frequently due to legislative action by Congress ... The U.S.-Israel relationship is yet another instance where the perceived needs of an American "ally" take precedence over genuine national interests.

After the Confederates, Who’s Next?

For a century, Americans lived comfortably with the honoring, North and South, of the men who fought on both sides. But today's America is not the magnanimous country we grew up in. Since the '60s, there has arisen an ideology that holds that the Confederacy was the moral equivalent of Nazi Germany, and those who fought under its battle flag should be regarded as traitors or worse. Thus, in New Orleans, statues of Jefferson Davis, president of the Confederate States of America, and General Robert E. Lee were just pulled down ... Behind this remorseless drive to blast the greatest names from America's past off public buildings, and to tear down their statues and monuments, is an egalitarian extremism rooted in envy and hate.

BITCOIN Can Be Manipulated (and here's how)

I am all for Bitcoin investment as long as there is a strategy. This video, while a little extreme and theatrical, shows the weak points in Bitcoin's design which could be (and are likely already being) exploited by the government and the institutional players. In short: Bitcoin can be easily smashed down at the push of a button.

Bitcoin price behaves like gold and silver should be behaving if not for the institutional manipulations via derivatives fraud. Since it is a virtual asset, my strategy is to buy, take modest profits, and convert to physical metals and other hard assets such as ammo and food (at the risk of sounding like a prepper).

Just like fiat, there's a good chance cryptocurrencies won't be worth much if the economy falls too hard. Then again, the government would probably confiscate and/or de-merchandise metals and inflate dollars, so an alternative strategy diversified with cryptos is a good idea.

Serco loses millions after losing Mt Eden contract in wake of "fight clubs"

Serco lost $10.5 million last year as a result of losing the Mt Eden Prison contract when evidence of "fight clubs" emerged.

The company's Annual Financial Report for 2016 that was filed with the Companies Office showed Serco New Zealand's revenue for 2016 was $52m, down 19 per cent from $64m in 2015.

Its finances were hit with the loss of the Mt Eden contract, lower revenues and higher staff costs.

Serco is a British outsourcing company that is contracted to manage Auckland South Corrections Facility.

It lost the right to run Mt Eden Correctional Facility in 2015 after controversial management was revealed.

A 2016 report revealed weekly "fight clubs", "freely available" drugs and cellphones smuggled in by prison staff, and negligent guards who may have missed violent behaviour because they were playing table tennis and pool within the jail.

He said his work is to bring better health to children, not deny them the chance to survive preventable diseases.

Vaxxed - from Cover-Up to Catastrophe proposes a link between vaccines and autism, and suggests a cover-up by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

It has been criticised widely as being short of scientific evidence and based on sources which have been discredited.

"I haven't bothered to look at it, I don't need to," Dr O'Sullivan said.

Despite Family’s Pleas, The Search For Truth About Seth Rich Continues

By Derrick Broze

After a dizzying week of unsubstantiated claims and anonymous rumors, it’s time to look at what we actually know about Seth Rich’s murder.

On Tuesday May 16, Fox5 in Washington D.C. released a report claiming that Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich was in contact with WikiLeaks prior to his murder in July 2016. The report claimed a private investigator hired by Rich’s family has found tangible evidence of a connection to Rich and WikiLeaks. According to D.C. police, Rich was shot twice in the back as part of a botched robbery in D.C.’s Bloomingdale neighborhood. He has been suspected as the possible source for the DNC leaks which began last summer during the presidential campaign...

Egypt launches air strikes in Libya in response to attack on Coptic Christians

Egyptian forces on Friday launched air strikes on six jihadist training camps in Libya in retaliation for an attack on Coptic Christians in Egypt earlier in the day in which at least 28 people were killed, many of them children.

In a televised address to Egypt's people, President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi said: "Before we spoke to you today, we launched a strike against one of the camps" where jihadists train.

"Egypt will not hesitate in striking terror camps anywhere, either inside (the country) or outside it," Sisi added. According to state TV, a total of six targets were hit.

The Egyptian leader did not specify where in Libya his forces struck, but military sources cited by the Reuters news agency said the strikes were carried out near Derna, where Cairo believes militants responsible for Friday’s deadly attack were trained.

Bahrainis hold more anti-regime rallies nationwide

People in Bahrain hold more rallies nationwide in protest at the Manama regime’s recent bloodshed in the besieged village of Diraz, which is home to the spiritual leader of the country’s Shia majority, Sheikh Isa Qassim.

On May 23, Bahraini forces raided Diraz, which has been under a military siege for almost a year, and stormed into the home of Sheikh Qassim.

During the raid, regime forces killed at least five demonstrators, wounded dozens and arrested over 280 people during the crackdown on Diraz, which took place shortly after a meeting between US President Donald Trump and Bahraini King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifah in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question of why President Trump is so excellent at making such horrifically bad choices in foreign policy in the Middle East just gives me nightmares.

He's cosied up to one of the worst suppressors of human rights in the region,AKA Saudi Arabia; selling them bombs with which to continue their genocide in Yemen, and ultimately start a war against Iran, which has done absolutely nothing wrong, except develop a truly moderate, Constitutional Muslim democracy, and be the alleged "existential threat" claimed by both Israel and Saudi Arabia.

And the Al Khalifa monarchy in Bahrain?!? Please, don't get me started!!

The Sunni monarchy has been mercilessly persecuting peaceful Shiia protestors who are advocating for a Constitutional Monarchy; they have been jailed, tortured into confessions for crimes they have not committed; convicted by kangaroo courts and given long prison sentences.

Even the first responders who treated these protestors from their injuries and wounds by the Bahraini police have been jailed, tortured, convicted of crimes they did not commit, and committing them to long prison sentences as well.

I have warned the Bahraini government over the years on this blog, that if there was no attempt to achieve a political compromise with their Shiite citizens, there would be a tipping point, and we may well be looking at that tipping point right now.

And it may come at such a price that there will be a violent revolution against the monarchy, and whoever will be in control will be virulently anti-American, because of this country's wholehearted support of this wretched, tone-deaf monarchy, and its government.

At that point, the US 5th Fleet, which is hosted by Bahrain, may well have to find a new home.

US nuclear fuel fire may lead to much larger disaster than Fukushima: Study

A new US study has found that government agencies have undermined the risks to the country’s nuclear safety, warning that a single nuclear fuel fire may lead to a disaster “much greater than [Japan’s] Fukushima.”

If spent fuel at one of America’s dozens of nuclear sites is set on fire, it “could dwarf the horrific consequences of the Fukushima accident,” researchers from Princeton University and the Union of Concerned Scientists cautioned in a study published in the Friday issue of Science Magazine, censuring the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) for ignoring the potential danger.

Such a disaster, it said, would lead to “trillion-dollar consequences,” as the hypothetical fire would lead to the contamination of a region larger than the northeast state of New Jersey and compel mass relocations.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

With a serious deterioration of facilities like Hanford in Washington State, Congress needs to start taking care of the people they allegedly represent, by making sure that critical infrastructure, like the country's nuclear facilities are upgraded and cared for.

Unfortunately, with such a huge portion of Trump's 2018 budget dedicated to the military, I don't think this will happen before it is too late to address the problem.

Nancy Pelosi complains Trump not visiting countries in alphabetical order

Has Nancy Pelosi completely lost her mind? Or does she just have to complain about everything President Trump does?

“I thought it was unusual for the President of the United States to go to Saudi Arabia first. Saudi Arabia!” Pelosi said.

“It wasn’t even alphabetical. I mean, Saudi Arabia.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To those who Congresswoman Pelosi allegedly represents in the 12th District; this woman is getting progressively more confused, irritable, and ever more illogical.

And if she doesn't get why President Trump went first to Saudi Arabia, I would be very happy to explain to her why; it was the huge weapons deal he pulled off there.

Chinese jets come within several hundred feet of US plane over South China Sea

Two Chinese J-10 fighter jets came within several hundred feet of a U.S. Navy P-3 Orion over the South China Sea on Thursday local time, U.S. officials said.

The fighters flew 200 yards in front of the P-3 maritime surveillance aircraft with an altitude separation of 100 feet, an encounter the commander of the U.S. aircraft determined as "unsafe and unprofessional," U.S. officials said.

According to a U.S. official, the Chinese jets were weaving ahead of the American plane, an action that concerned the U.S. pilot.

The activity occurred 150 miles southeast of Hainan Island in the northern part of the South China Sea.

A U.S. official said the U.S. plans to address the incident with China through diplomatic and military channels.

This encounter appears to have occurred the same day that the U.S. Navy destroyer USS Dewey sailed within 12 miles of Mischief Reef in the South China Sea, conducting a Freedom of Navigation Operation by the artificial island claimed by China.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Please remember; when US ships are inside the 12 nautical miles boundary which comprise sovereign Chinese territory, this is tantamount to an invasion of Chinese territory.

And also please remember: after World War II, these Islands were given to China as a result of the Cairo Declaration, and the Potsdam Proclamation:

US PLANS FIRST TEST OF ICBM INTERCEPT, WITH NKOREA ON MIND

Preparing for North Korea's growing threat, the Pentagon will try to shoot down an intercontinental-range missile for the first time in a test next week. The goal is to more closely simulate a North Korean ICBM aimed at the U.S. homeland, officials said Friday

The American interceptor has a spotty track record, succeeding in nine of 17 attempts since 1999. The most recent test, in June 2014, was a success, but that followed three straight failures. The system has evolved from the multibillion-dollar effort triggered by President Ronald Reagan's 1983 push for a "Star Wars" solution to ballistic missile threats during the Cold War - when the Soviet Union was the only major worry.

North Korea is now the focus of U.S. efforts because its leader, Kim Jong Un, has vowed to field a nuclear-armed missile capable of reaching American territory. He has yet to test an intercontinental ballistic missile, or ICBM, but Pentagon officials believe he is speeding in that direction.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

But what is the US military actually able to do about the interceptor's miserable failure rate?!?

This will do absolutely nothing unless it is completely accurate in its interception process, and it looks to me as though it is going to need far more intense engineering, and time, to get these units fully operational.

UN alarm over conditions for Palestinian prisoners

The United Nations has called Israel to improve conditions for Palestinians in custody, expressing alarm over reports of "punitive measures by Israeli authorities" against hundreds of prisoners who are on hunger strike for nearly 40 days.

More than 1,500 prisoners launched the action on April 17 to press for an end to administrative detention and solitary confinement, as well as longer and more regular family visits, landlines installed in prisons and better healthcare.

The protest has continued without resolution and the health of hundreds of participating prisoners has began to "deteriorate significantly," Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, the UN high commissioner for human rights, said in a statement on Wednesday.

"I am especially alarmed by reports of punitive measures by the Israeli authorities against the hunger strikers, including restricted access to lawyers and the denial of family visits," Zeid said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When these men start to die (and some of them will, even with NG feeding), the Palestinian blowback against Israel may take a very dark, violent turn here.

The bottom line here, when it comes to Palestinian prisoners, there are no standard rules of law, to which truly civilized countries adhere.

"Secret evidence" and indefinite detention is unacceptable, in most judicial practices around the world; it should be unacceptable against Palestinian prisoners as well.

The Portuguese parliament has unanimously approved a motion put up by the Green party (PEV) for the Portuguese government to request the Spanish government at the next Iberian Summit to close the Almaraz Nuclear Plant.

The motion renounces the continued operation of the plant after 2020 and asks the government to take a “resolute position” for the facility, located 100 kilometres from the Portuguese border, to be closed.

The PEV noted that Portugal had given up on a complaint about the plant filed with the European Commission after it signed an agreement with Spain to reassess the cross-border impacts of the temporary nuclear waste storage facility planned to be built in Almaraz.

Arms Deal Stories Omit War Crimes Arms Will Be Used For

The Trump administration wrapped up a weapons deal with the Saudi Arabian government this week that will be worth up to $350 billion over the next ten years. News of the deal came as Trump visited Riyadh and paid fealty to one of the United States’ most enduring allies in the Middle East.

The vast majority of the reports on the topic, however, omitted a rather key piece of context—namely, whom the weapons will be used to kill.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These weapons will be used to complete the Saudi genocide in Yemen, and ultimately, the US and Israel are planning to use Saudi Arabia as a proxy force for a war against the Iranians.

Of course, the gorilla, napping, splayed out all over the Bosendorfer Grand Piano, is Russia; Russian civilian and military leadership has consistently promised Iran that it will come to its aid if it is attacked militarily.

A war against Russia over Iran?!?!?

Folks, this potential scenario is just about as serious as is a heart attack, and my assessment is that it is coming, sooner, rather than later.

That President Trump has thrown the US's lot in with a country with so vile a human rights record, that it makes Attila the Hun look downright compassionate in comparison, just boggles the mind.

But of course, both Israel and the Saudi government want regime change in Tehran, so, that is precisely what President Trump is going to attempt to get them, even though a war against Iran will most likely mean war with Russia.

And such a war is a war that the US military might not be able to win, because at this time in its history, the US military doesn't have the weaponry, the money, the troop strength, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia.

Are Credit Rating Agencies America’s Secret Fifth Column?

A “Fifth Column” is a group within a country at war who are sympathetic to or working for its enemies.

Even a full-blown war with North Korea or Russia could not inflict the damage done to this Country by Moody’s, Fitch and S&P. The rating agencies have declared war on the United States and the damage they are inflicting will eventually destroy this Country from within.

In 2008, the Country was brought to its knees with the eight trillion-dollar mortgage bond crisis. It again got a taste of what the rating agencies are capable of with the Detroit and Puerto Rico bankruptcies.

You see when a credit rating agency or a bank works on transactions worth hundreds of millions or billions, they deploy their best folks. The most experienced and educated investment bankers. This is also true of the Banks that knowingly sell these fraudulent investments to their unsuspecting clients.

State And Local Pension Plans Are Underfunded To The Point Of Becoming A Political And Governments Confronted With The Resulting Set Of Unpalatable Options, Are Surrendering Without Admitting It.

Doing the right thing is hard for both individuals and their governments. Name the goal – maintaining a healthy weight, paying off high-interest credit cards, keeping debt-to-GDP at reasonable levels, whatever – and with each missed deadline or broken promise success recedes further into the distance. And the temptation grows to just give up and pretend that the goal never really mattered.

NEO CONNED BY PRETTY FACES ON FOX

Regime change to save people in foreign lands from an oppressive dictator who is killing his own people has been a favorite excuse used by American leaders to go to war. Fox soId the lies well. It certainly plays better with the public than admitting that we need to kill a bunch of innocent civilians so we can steal their Oil and other valuable resources

Masked gunmen kill 28 in attack on Christians in Egypt

Gunmen attacked a group of Coptic Christians travelling to a monastery in central Egypt on Friday, killing 28 people and wounding 24, with many children among the victims, Health Ministry officials said.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack, which came on the eve of the holy month of Ramadan. It followed a series of church bombings claimed by Islamic State in a campaign of violence against the Copts.

Islamic State supporters reposted videos from earlier this year urging violence against the Copts in Egypt.

Eyewitnesses said masked men opened fire after stopping the Christians, who were in a bus and other vehicles. Local TV channels showed a bus apparently raked by gunfire and smeared with blood.

Clothes and shoes could be seen lying in and around the bus, while the bodies of some of the victims lay in the sand nearby, covered with black sheets.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In the US, being a Christian is generally not hazardous to one's health; unfortunately in other countries, like Egypt, it can mean a death sentence for you and your family.

Iraqi troops torture and execute civilians in secret videos

Officers of an elite Iraqi special forces unit, praised by U.S. military commanders earlier this year for its role in fighting ISIS, directed the torture and execution of civilians in Mosul in at least six distinct incidents caught on tape.

“That's a murder,” retired Green Beret Lt. Col. Scott Mann told ABC News after reviewing the graphic footage. “There should be punishment for anyone doing it. It's reprehensible and it shouldn't be allowed on any modern battlefield."

The alarming footage was smuggled out of Iraq by a prize-winning Iraqi photojournalist, Ali Arkady, who spent months embedded in combat with the elite Iraqi troops leading the fight against ISIS late last year. Since turning over his cache of photos and videos to ABC News, he says he has received death threats from the soldiers he once considered friends and has now fled Iraq to seek asylum in Europe.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, these Iraqi military personnel learned,and absorbed, the lessons of Abu Ghraib extraordinary well.

US Torture of Iraqi prisoners of war at Abu Ghraib

Of course, the Iraqi government is vehemently denying this:Iraq's Interior Minister issues a video to prove that torture claims are "incorrect".

Unfortunately, there are way too many eye-witness accounts of such events happening for it not to be true.
