THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

"The global financial elite of the Ford, Carnegie and Rockefeller foundations are making the plans [for a one world government]. The real name of the game is 1984. We will have systematic population reduction, forced sterilization or anything else which the planners deem necessary to establish absolute control in their humanitarian utopia. But to enforce these plans, you must have an all-powerful world government. You can't do this if individual nations have sovereignty. And before you can facilitate the Great Merger, you must first centralize control within each nation, destroy the local police and remove the guns from the hands of the citizenry. You must replace our once free Constitutional Republic with an all-powerful central government." -- Gary Allen in his book "None Dare Call It Conspiracy"

Hillary: The President America Deserves

“It’s time” for Hillary, and who can disagree? It doesn’t matter that no one who isn’t being paid to say it sincerely believes she can lead the country. She is precisely what the American system is designed to produce.

Mencken said of American government:

“All the odds are on the man who is, intrinsically, the most devious and mediocre—the man who can most adeptly disperse the notion that his mind is a virtual vacuum. The Presidency tends, year by year, to go to such men. As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”

TECHNO FASCISM: DHS TO OPEN UP SHOP IN SILICON VALLEY

The Department of Homeland Security is setting up shop in Google's territory. DHS is close to opening a branch in Silicon Valley to help tighten the tech industry's computer security -- and conscript its top talent, the department's top official announced Tuesday. The move is part of a larger attempt to build a bridge between West Coast Web giants and the government, after 2013 revelations of online surveillance soured many in the industry on the concept of public-private partnerships.

The Stain of Big Oil Is Smearing Earth... and Our Culture

This week marks the 5th anniversary of BP’s Deepwater Horizon disaster. The company continues to be hounded by the legal fallout, including criminal convictions, and it is desperate to do whatever it can to cleanse its public image. This is especially challenging in the face of intense criticism globally from the fossil fuel divestment groups like 350.org, the #keepitintheground campaign and the movement to end oil sponsorship of the arts.

CIA-BACKED COMPANY MAY BE READING YOUR FACEBOOK CHATS

So thought Bosnadev, a group of coders and bloggers, when they used the communication program to send a link. But something seemed amiss.

SAUDIS DECLARE END OF ONE YEMEN OPERATION, THEN ANNOUNCE A SECOND

Iranian officials began Tuesday hopeful a ceasefire would bring an end to the relentless air campaign Saudi Arabia and its Arab allies have conducted in Yemen for nearly a month now. In the following hours Saudi Arabia announced on television that Operation Decisive Storm was over, that “all the goals had been met” and declared the beginning of a new operation: “Restoring Hope.” In its statement, the kingdom said the new operation would have more of a political focus, would spend time dealing with helping civilians and counter terrorism.

Libertarians’ Civil War Over Ukraine

On the one hand, Andrei Illarionov of the Koch Brothers’ libertarian Cato Institute says that the first among “the crimes that have been committed or are being committed by the Kremlin — stealing Crimea” can be rectified only by rejecting “Russia’s aggression in Crimea,” which means to replace the current Russian government by “a free democratic state with the rule of law”: i.e., overthrowing it in order to establish that very thing, “a free democratic state with the rule of law.” He says that, “The issue of Crimea’s jurisdiction is within the competence of only one subject of international law — the owner of that territory, namely Ukraine. Only this subject, and no one else, has necessary legal rights to change this territory’s jurisdiction.” And, since Ukraine did not sell Crimea to Russia, Russia “stole” it from Ukraine.

STATE LETS POLICE TAKE TEENAGERS AWAY FROM PARENTS IF THEY ARE LEFT HOME ALONE

A new Illinois law is threatening parents who leave their children home alone if they are 13-years-old or younger. The new Illinois law states that parents who leave 13-year-olds home are guilty of neglect, and subject to arrest, as well as their children being taken away by police. The new law states that "any minor under the age of 14 years whose parent or other person responsible for the minor's welfare leaves the minor without supervision for an unreasonable period of time without regard for the mental or physical health, safety, or welfare of that minor" is now considered ?neglected.?

(*BEX) Taliban Are Said to Target Hazaras to Try to Match ISIS’ Brutality

The police in Ghazni Province on Sunday confirmed that four Hazara farmers who had been kidnapped by the Taliban had been found beheaded in Ajristan District. Another six Hazaras from Daikundi Province who had been kidnapped by unknown assailants were also found dead, dumped in Ajristan District, less than a week after their families began searching for them
***
Beheading is not normally a Taliban tactic, but the insurgents seem to be trying to make an ugly example of the Hazaras, in what is seen by some as a bid for attention.

“The Taliban are trying to send out a new message that they are similar in their brutality to ISIS,” said Shahgul Rezaye, a Hazara member of Parliament, referring to Islamic State extremists from Iraq and Syria, who have reportedly been trying to recruit supporters in Afghanistan. “They’re trying to show they are as bad as ISIS.”

New Zealand’s Premier Apologizes for Pulling Waitress’s Hair

The waitress made her complaint public in an anonymous blog post on Wednesday, saying that Mr. Key, a frequent visitor to the Auckland cafe where she works, had tugged on her ponytail repeatedly over a period of months
***
In her blog post, the waitress said that at first she did not complain directly to the prime minister, but that when he tried to pull her hair on March 13, she backed away, wagged her finger and repeatedly said no. Two weeks later, she said, after he tugged on her hair once more as he left the cafe, she told him, “Please STOP or I will actually hit you soon!”

According to the waitress, Mr. Key returned shortly thereafter with two bottles of wine and said: “This is for you, sorry. I didn’t realize.” She wrote that his assertion that he had not been aware his behavior was unwelcome “was almost more offensive than the harassment itself.”

Wealth Destruction for the 99.9 Percent

Blaming the 1% for diminished prosperity avoids the real reasons for designed poverty. In round terms, the seven billion souls that populate this planet translate into seventy million to be part of the 1%. Well, that amount is still a very large number to blame for the systemic transfer of riches into the hands of the few. A far more relevant approach is to examine the .001% or around seven million that fall into the mover or shakers of asset and possessions. Before targeting this group of mega wealth, that figure includes a very significant number, who are non players when it comes to global politics or transnational finance.

In the War Zone of Eastern Ukraine

Ukraine has imposed an economic blockade on Donetsk and Lugansk, including cessation of payment of old age pensions and other social benefits since last June. One piece of good news while we were in Donetsk is that the new government is in a position to assume payment of old age pensions as of April 1. We talked to elderly people lined up at the branches of the new banking system to receive their pensions. They were happy to be receiving payment, finally, but none too happy with the war that finds them in such a lineup.

Consequently, Washington’s lies are subject to challenge, and as people lose confidence in Western print and TV media because of the propaganda content, Washington’s agendas, which depend on lies, are experiencing rougher sledding.

America Lying About ISIS and Everything

A few weeks ago, the Wall Street Journal ran an article about CIA training camps in Jordan. The expose was a hoax. The WSJ is a Murdoch/Israeli publication that was providing cover to the CIA/Jordanian/Israeli nexus supporting ISIS and Al Nusra against the Damascus government.

The story in the WSJ described lack of funding, total lack of ammunition and supplies and told of a failed operation with few recruits and little US involvement. The story was a lie. There are massive weapons depots outside Amman that supply ISIS and supply lines from the Red Sea ports of both Israel and Jordan that run directly into the Daara region of Syria.

This is one lie, we will be looking at many.

In other words, you can take all of that stuff you heard about how the Greek crisis was fixed and throw it out the window. Over the next few months, a big chunk of Greek government bonds held by the IMF and the European Central Bank will mature.

How the Federal Reserve Is Destroying Your Economic Future

When it comes to what goes on in the marble corridors of the Federal Reserve, Americans tend to be suspicious. For different reasons, both the right and the left have challenged Fed policies aimed at bolstering the economy in the wake of the Great Recession.

In two papers for the Institute of New Economic Thinking’s Working Group on the Political Economy of Distribution, “Have Large Scale Asset Purchases Increased Bank Profits?” and the forthcoming “The Impact of ‘Quantitative Easing’ on Expected Profits: Explaining the Rise and Fall of the Fed’s QE Policy,” economist Gerald Epstein and his colleague Juan Antonio Montecino sought to find out who in the economy tends to benefit from the Fed’s actions. They conclude that Wall Street and wealthy Americans are the big winners from policies like quantitative easing, while the rest see little improvement in their economic lives. End result? Inequality is getting worse.

Flashback - Abu Musab al-Zarqawi: The Dead Voice of "al Qaeda" in Iraq

"The Zarqawi PSYOP program is the most successful information campaign to date." -- Brig. Gen. Mark Kimmitt, in an internal 2004 memo praising the propaganda campaign to hype the threat of Iraq's "terrorist mastermind" Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.

I'm frankly amazed this Washington Post story from Monday hasn't gotten more play.

What it exposes is that Bush administration never stopped lying to the American people about the threats faced in Iraq. Just as it did with WMD before the war, the administration hyped the threat posed by Zarqawi during the occupation -- this time to make it seem as though Iraq were a vital part of the battle with Al Qaeda.

Rivero challenges the NSA

The point of these exercises is to prove that the NSA is not really all that great at cryptography in the era of cheap computing equipment. Their "success" at spying rests on the people of the world using standard off-the-shelf encryption systems for which the NSA has the method and can brute force the keys, or as has proven to be the case, simply has bribed the creators of these commercial products to build in back doors. As we demonstrate here, real criminals and real terrorists can, with little effort, create encryption systems the NSA cannot break. Certainly in these times the NSA would welcome the positive publicity resulting from their finding the computer criminals who broke into Target, or are behind the Cryptolocket extortion racket. The NSA has a powerful motive to find and have arrested these high-profile computer criminals. That they have not, means they cannot.

In New York, 88,000 people have applied for 55 affordable apartments in a single building
You may recall the infamous "poor door" development in New York — a luxury high-rise condo in Manhattan designed to include 55 affordable units that will be accessible from a separate entrance. The developer, Extell, agreed to include the below market-rate apartments in exchange for permission from the city to construct a larger building on the site than the zoning code would normally allow. Affordable housing advocates, the mayor and the media, though, cried foul when they realized that Extell intended to separate the rich from the poor.

However, take it away from them, and all the fortunes like mine will disappear, and they ought to disappear, for this world would be a happier and better world to live in. But if you wish to remain slaves of the Bankers and pay for the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create deposits." -- Sir Josiah Stamp, President of the Bank of England in the 1920s, the second richest man in Britain

Liberate the Bank of Canada, Intrepid Think Tank Urges

You know the old aphorism -- "If a tree falls in the forest...?" Well, how about this one: If citizens win a significant victory in court against an autocratic government involving the fleecing of Canadians of billions of their hard-earned tax dollars and no one in the media actually covers it, did it really happen?

That might well be the question being asked over at the Committee for Monetary and Economic Reform (COMER) a very small and low-budget Toronto think tank. With their lawyer Rocco Galati (of Supreme Court fame in the Marc Nadon case), they have been steadily winning court battles initiated in 2011 that would oblige the Bank of Canada to return to its pre-1974 practice of lending the government money virtually interest free. But the mainstream media has boycotted the story. Galati believes the Harper government has done some serious arm-twisting to keep the story buried.

The tainted wheat — which contains toxic and cancerous elements and dead insects and cannot be consumed — was among the most dangerous issues that raised the ire of the Egyptian street under the regime of President Hosni Mubarak. Its wide distribution to mills and bakeries was discovered in 2009.

Egypt is one of the largest wheat importers in the world, taking in between 7.3 and 8.2 million tons annually from Russia, the United States, Ukraine and Kazakhstan.

Cairo is currently facing a crisis threatening to increase its wheat bill in the wake of restrictions imposed in February by Russia, the fourth largest wheat exporter in the world, on its wheat exports in accordance with rising domestic prices.

UK, US look into use of drugs in mass riots, says drug control service

Research centers of Great Britain and the US are studying the possibility of the use of drugs for ‘color revolutions’ and mass unrest, the head of the Russian Federal Drug Control Service Viktor Ivanov said on Tuesday.
If harder elements are added to drugs, they get toxic features producing a strong effect. It could cause a very strong passionate reaction if used among the young people, he said citing Russian poet, literary critic and traveler Nikolai Gumilyov. "This can be practiced in ‘color revolutions’," Ivanov added.
Ivanov said this method was used during Maidan riots in Ukraine. "Methadone therapy was used on Maidan, it was widely used in Ukraine and scores of methadone were spread among drug users as a matter of fact legally," he continued. "These were the people used as cannon fodder on Maidan," he noted.

Moscow expects EU’s assessment following Polish lawmaker’s remarks on Maidan snipers

Russia expects "the international constructive pressure" with regard to Kiev to hold a genuine investigation of the events on Maidan, Russian Foreign Ministry’s Commissioner for Human Rights, Democracy and the Rule of Law Konstantin Dolgov told the Life News TV channel on Tuesday.
According to Polish lawmaker in the European Parliament Janusz Korwin-Mikke, the snipers who fired in Kiev during the tragic events on Maidan last February had been trained in Poland, local media report.
"Maidan was our job. I sat in the European Parliament next to Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Paet. He acknowledged in a conversation with the then EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton that our people were firing on Maidan rather than the people of Russian President Vladimir Putin or former Ukrainian leader [Viktor] Yanukovich," the Polish politician said.

Call your Senate Finance Committee member against anti-BDS bill

Sen.

The amendment is expected to be similar to S. 619 which Cardin introduced March 2. Similar legislation (HR 825) was introduced in the House on February 10.

Both bills target actions to "limit commercial relations" with "territories controlled by Israel." By equating "Israeli settlements in the West Bank" with "Israel," these bills are endorsing the Israeli annexation of the West Bank.

Russia sending two more evacuation planes to Yemen — embassy

"If Saudi Arabia opens airspace, two Russian aircraft are expected to arrive in Sana’a to evacuate citizens," the Russian diplomatic mission in the country said on Tuesday.
More than 400 people, both the citizens of Russia, the United States and the former Soviet states, are expected to be evacuated, according to the embassy. "If everything is fine, the Russian aircraft will evacuate everyone," it said.
Since early April, Moscow has evacuated more than 1,000 citizens of Russia, the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) and other countries. Around 900 people were evacuated from Sana’a and the seaport city of Aden on April 2 and April 4 to an airbase outside Moscow.
On April 12, the Priazovye vessel of Russia’s Navy brought another 320 people, including 18 US citizens, from Aden to Djibouti. All the Russian citizens were flown from Djibouti to Moscow by two Il-62 aircraft on April 12-13.

District Attorney Says Encrypted Phones May Make You a Terrorist Because They “Cannot Be Accessed by Law Enforcement”

As we reported last week, even the Third Amendment can now be violated so that law enforcement officials can forcibly occupy your home to gain a tactical advantage against criminal or terror suspects.

This is America in 2015 so it’s no surprise that Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr. wants total access to your personal effects. If it were up to Vance, you as an individual would have no right to secure your personal phone or computer data. As far as the DA is concerned, if you are encrypting your passwords, private messages, and personal notes you are denying nosy big government operatives the intrusive access they so desperately need to control you.

But it cannot, and it won't, because people not only want, but also deserve, their privacy on line. Wanting to keep private communication private should not be construed as alleged "terroristic behaviour".

The Federal Government cannot decrypt everything, and those 6 NSA challenges Mike has done have gone completely unanswered, although we know that several people (most likely from one of the "Alphabet Soup" agencies) have tried, and failed miserably.

Saudi Arabia Orders Its National Guard To Enter Yemen War

Over the better part of the past month, the only entities actively involved in the proxy war in Yemen against the local Houthi rebel force have been air force units, mostly under Saudi command as part of Operation "Decisive Storm." Which probably explains why there has been little if any progress to note in pushing back said rebellion which, armed heavily thanks to the US government, has successfully managed to push the current president into an indefinite exile.

That changed hours ago, when Saudi Arabia's King Salman ordered the Saudi Arabian National Guard, widely regarded as the kingdom's best equipped military ground force, to take part in Riyadh's campaign against Iran-allied Houthi rebels in Yemen.

As Reuters notes, "military operations in the campaign have so far been carried out by the Royal Saudi Air Force and the Royal Saudi Land Forces, which answer to the Defense Ministry. The national guard is a separate military structure run by its own ministry."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder just how soon it will be American military boots on the ground in Yemen; were I a betting person, I wouldn't bet against...soon.

Pakistan faces dilemma as Saudi bills come due

When the Saudi appeal first came, it seemed that the dispatch of Pakistani soldiers to the Gulf was imminent: "Any threat to the territorial integrity of Saudi Arabia will be met with a firm response," read a communique from Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

But soon thereafter, Pakistan's foreign ministry issued a denial that any of the country's military was engaged in Yemen, though the Pakistani flag continued to fly alongside that of Arab nations at the Saudi-based headquarters of Yemen operations.

This "now-you-see-it, now-you-don't" game ended only when Pakistan's Parliament voted against the dispatch of troops. Still, the episode shed light on the murky world of Pakistani-Saudi relations, a link which looks destined to shape the security map of the Middle East for years to come.

Israeli Fighter Jets Join Saudi Arabia in War on Yemen

Israel’s fighter jets have taken part in the Thursday Saudi-led airstrikes on Yemen, sources in Sanaa disclosed on Friday.

“This is for the first time that the Zionists are conducting a joint operation in coalition with Arabs,” Secretary General of Yemen’s Al-Haq Political Party Hassan Zayd wrote on his facebook page.

He noted that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had issued direct orders for the Israeli air force to send fighter jets to the Saudi-led air raid on Yemen.

Saudi Arabia launched airstrikes against Yemen and killed, at least, 25 civilians early Thursday, one day after the US-backed Yemeni president fled the country.

Blood on their Hands: Libya’s Boat Refugees and “Humanitarian” Imperialism

Since the beginning of the year, at least 1,700 people attempting to immigrate to Europe have died in transit, 50 times the number for the same period last year. According to the IOM, the number of people dying in the attempt to reach the shores of Europe rose by more than 500 percent between 2011 and 2014.

Of course, 2011 was the year that the US and its NATO allies, principally France and Britain, launched their war for regime change in Libya, under the fabricated pretext that they were intervening to prevent a massacre by the government of Muammar Gaddafi in the eastern city of Benghazi.

This “humanitarian” mission initiated a six-month US-NATO bombing campaign that killed at least 10 times the number who died in the scattered fighting between government troops and armed rebels that had preceded it. This imperialist intervention, which utilized Islamist militias with ties to Al Qaeda as its proxy ground forces, left Libya descending rapidly into chaos and destruction.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The future of Libya should, by rights, belong to the Libyan people; but unending and merciless Western intervention is making this almost impossible.

DOJ Admits FBI Forensic Examiners Gave False Testimony for Decades

In response to a Washington Post investigation, the Department of Justice and FBI have formally admitted that the majority of FBI forensic hair analysts provided flawed testimony and false evidence against criminal defendants for nearly three decades. With the advent of DNA testing, the FBI has discovered that their own forensic examiners gave erroneous testimony in more than 95% of cases that have been reviewed. Due to the fact that FBI analysts provided scientifically invalid testimony for decades, numerous innocent convicts have been exonerated and released from prison.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Except for the ones who were executed, and the FBI feels really bad about them!
