McCain: US Senate will block nuclear agreement with Iran

Republican Senator John McCain has threatened that the US Senate would block any nuclear deal, should the Obama administration reach an agreement with Iran.

McCain told CNN on Sunday that “we will do everything in our power to make sure we do play a role because we think that's our constitutional obligations.”

“I don't think they will reach a deal that we can live with,” he added.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

John McCain is willing to defy the White House and the American people, neither of whom want any more wars, to please his Israeli masters, who do want war with Iran (as long as your sons and daughters fight it for them). This is a family tradition with the McCains. If you will recall, it was his father, Admiral John McCain, who ran the coverup of Israel's attack on the USS Liberty, a previous attempt by Israel to trick the US into wars on its enemies.

FLASHBACK - Court OKs Barring High IQs for Cops

A man whose bid to become a police officer was rejected after he scored too high on an intelligence test has lost an appeal in his federal lawsuit against the city.

The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York upheld a lower court’s decision that the city did not discriminate against Robert Jordan because the same standards were applied to everyone who took the test.

“This kind of puts an official face on discrimination in America against people of a certain class,” Jordan said today from his Waterford home. “I maintain you have no more control over your basic intelligence than your eye color or your gender or anything else.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And now, as new recruits dwindle in the backlash against brutality, cities are lowering the standards for new police officers even more!

Je Suis Zeon: French Freedom of Speech is a Myth, Says Cartoonist

Journalists and cartoonists defended their right for freedom of speech. But it seems like something is rotten in France.

A Frenchman called Zeon, 31, originally from Paris told Sputnik France his striking story. Recently he was arrested by the French government for his caricatures.

“On Tuesday March 3, 2015, police broke into my house at 7 a.m. The officers were following orders of a judge and led me to the court and then put me under arrest. I was arrested for a caricature which I drew in 2011 and which was opposed by the organization BNVCA (National Bureau of Monitoring of Anti-Semitism). The organization filed a complaint on me in 2011. Currently, the investigation continues.”

He used to draw comics, and since 2007 engaged in caricatures and gained fame as a caricaturist. Currently he leads a group of illustrators and caricaturists who have been boycotted by the media.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Je suis hypocrite!

Apparently in France, freedom of speech means freedom to make fun of anyone ... except Israel. That is not freedom of speech, that is permitted speech!

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s allies acknowledged on Sunday that his election-eve disavowal of a Palestinian state had caused a rift with the White House, but blamed U.S. President Barack Obama’s unprecedented criticism on a misunderstanding.

Op-ed calls on Israel to nuke Germany, Iran

Right-wing media outlet Israel National News published an opinion piece Tuesday calling on Israel to launch nuclear bombs at Iran and Germany ... The author claims that only through nuclear annihilation of Iran and Germany, with 20 or 30 nuclear bombs each, can Israelis prevent the state's destruction. "If Israel does not walk in the ways of God's Bible," author Chen Ben-Eliyahu wrote in Hebrew, "it will receive a heavy punishment of near complete destruction and doom and only a few will be saved." ... He also called on the Jewish people to remember its near destruction at the hands of the Nazis and exact revenge on Germany, now a staunch ally of Israel.

What About Israel’s Nuclear Bomb?

... What about Israel's bomb? Why isn't that also part of the discussion? In the flood of news stories about Iran's nuclear intentions, I have yet to see mention of Israel's nuclear arsenal (if I missed some mentions, they must have been rare). Yet Israel's bomb is obviously relevant to the controversy. The facts are deliberately murky, but Israel has had nuclear weapons for at least forty years, though it has never officially acknowledged their existence ... The existence of Israel's nuclear superiority is clearly a pivotal fact of life in the chaotic conflicts and occasional wars of the Middle East. It should not be left out ... According to Wikipedia's account, largely based on scholarly sources, Israel has seventy-five to 400 bombs (others say it is more like 100 to 200).

The last lap: Inside the abandoned NASCAR track that has crumbled into a eerie ruin after sitting empty for four years

It was a mainstay on the NASCAR circuit for nearly five decades.

But now, North Wilkesboro Speedway in North Carolina - once filled with thousands of fans at a time - lies silent and deserted.

The legendary track, which opened its doors to a crowd of more than 10,000 in 1947, was recently caught on camera by photojournalist Seph Lawless.

The photojournalist, also an activist, captured the dilapidated arena as part of an ongoing project which focuses on 'the most abandoned' sites in America.

He told Daily Mail Online: 'This arena was once filled with thousands of people now it sits eerily silent and completely abandoned. It was apocalyptic.'

Obama takes on Netanyahu

US President Barack Obama has said that he takes Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu “at his word” that he cannot support a separate Palestinian state alongside Israel, as he dismissed the claim that Netanyahu has softened his stance since winning re-election.

In an interview published with The Huffington Post, Obama said he told Netanyahu in a phone call Thursday, "it is going to be hard to find a path where people are seriously believing that negotiations are possible" - after the Israeli leader rejected the idea of a Palestinian state during the elections.

[Video] Goldman Sachs: The bank that rules the world

Ever since the stock market crashed, on the night of September 15, 2008, the name Goldman Sachs, or GS, has been appearing everywhere: in the collapse of the financial system, the Greek crisis, the plunge of the euro, and the campaign to prevent regulation of financial markets.

The investment bank created in New York in 1868 has carved out its reputation and success by working silently behind the scenes.

But today GS stands accused of myriad charges: playing a key role in the subprime loan fiasco, pushing several of its competitors into bankruptcy, helping countries like Greece hide their deficits before speculating on their downfall, precipitating the fall of the euro, and influencing the consumer price index. And yet GS has come out of this latest crisis richer and more powerful than ever.

A few months ago it was clear that the decision had already been made to declare a record low in 2015. There was a lot of propaganda circulating about it at that time, and the actual data never made any difference.

The Jewish Left Is Not The Solution, It Is The Heart Of The Problem

I have never met Jeff Halper. What I know about him is that he is an American Jew who settled on Palestinian land but opposes Israeli house demolition. Halper appears to be a participant in the Zionist project while at the same time opposing the measures that have been implemented to sustain that plunderous project.

Halper’s moral discrepancy shouldn’t take us by surprise, he is far from alone. This behavioural mode is symptomatic of Jewish Left thinking in general and the Jewish anti Zionist call in particular. Instead of presenting a genuine ethical argument, the Jewish Left is a desperate attempt to convey an ‘image’ of Jewish moral awareness. Instead of being ethical they mimic a true ethical argument.

But the operation is said to have been shut down by the Crown Prosecution Service for national security reasons.

The claim came as the Met’s deputy assistant commissioner made a fresh appeal for victims of historic child sex abuse to come forward, and vowed: “We’ll go where the evidence takes us.”

How Did They Know? Examining 9/11 Foreknowledge of WTC Building 7’s Destruction

If someone were observing the fires in WTC 7 and able to determine, in the last few moments of the building’s existence, that a peculiar set of circumstances was beginning to threaten the building, that would be one thing. But to receive warnings of the building’s collapse well before this set of circumstances arose raises suspicion. Yet, a detailed study of the FDNY reports shows that of the thirty-three cases where the time of warning can be determined, in ten cases warnings were received two or more hours in advance, and in six cases warnings were apparently received four or more hours in advance. (See MacQueen’s “Waiting for Seven…” at page 4.) In other words, the warnings came long before the unique set of circumstances had allegedly come together to cause the building’s collapse.

The Great GMO Legitimation Crisis

Even with this power and political influence at its disposal, the GMO agritech industry is far from being a success. Much of its profits actually derive from failure: for example, Andrew Kimbrell notes that after having chosen to ignore science, the industry’s failing inputs are now to be replaced with more destined-to-fail and ever-stronger poisonous inputs. The legacy of poisoned environments and ecological devastation is for someone else to deal with. In his book, Steven Druker has shown that from very early on the US government has colluded with the GMO agritech sector to set a ‘technical fix-failure-technical fix‘ merry-go-round in motion.

This system is designed to stumble from one crisis to the next, all the while hiding behind the banners of ‘innovation’ or ‘research and development’. But it’s all good business. And that’s all that really matters to the industry.

Why Software Is So Bad

The joke encapsulates one of the great puzzles of contemporary technology. In an amazingly short time, software has become critical to almost every aspect of modern life. From bank vaults to city stoplights, from telephone networks to DVD players, from automobile air bags to air traffic control systems, the world around us is regulated by code. Yet much software simply doesn’t work reliably: ask anyone who has watched a computer screen flush blue, wiping out hours of effort. All too often, software engineers say, code is bloated, ugly, inefficient and poorly designed; even when programs do function correctly, users find them too hard to understand. Groaning beneath the weight of bricklike manuals, bookstore shelves across the nation testify to the perduring dysfunctionality of software.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yesterday, I was playing with Siri on my iPhone and asked "Why is software so buggy", expecting one of Siri's humorous responses. Instead, I was shown a huge (and I mean HUGE) list of articles decrying the poor quality of modern commercial software, of which this is one.

The reason for poor quality software is purely economical. When personal computers were a new industry and still fragile, lobbyists from IBM, Apple, Microsoft, etc. asked for and got indemnity from product liability from the Congress. What that meant was that if you bought a truck for your business and because of a design defect it crashed and your business suffered harm, you could sue the truck manufacturer. However, if you bought a computer system for your business and because of a design defect it crashed and your company suffered financial harm, Congress declared you could not sue the computer company. This removed the financial incentive to produce quality products, and computer companies shifted their development from robust reliable code to coming up with the next whiz-bang feature to boost sales of new units, leaving the end user to become the unpaid QA division of the company by finding and reporting the bugs and problems in their computers instead of getting real work done which brought in paychecks and assisted the economy.

Readers are already aware that I have never been able to install 3DSMAX 2014 on my Win7 machine (and have since given up trying). Another example is the program I use to edit videos, Adobe Premier, which has a habit of refusing to render the final edits with the totally useless message "Unknown Error", leading to a trial-and-error approach to find what is not working correctly. Multiply this by tens of thousands of users and you can see that the corporate desire for more profit, coupled with protection from product liability, has greatly lowered the productivity of Americans who are now dependent on those computer systems, requiring twice as much work to produce a final result. All very good for the computer corporations, but not so good for Americans struggling to compete in the global marketplace.

Now, when Apple and Microsoft were just starting out, some protection from being sued out of existence may have been justified. But today these are giant corporations, among the richest on earth, and should be held responsible for bad design as would be the truck manufacturer, in order to provide an incentive to more reliable and efficient products. But as long as these large corporations are allowed unlimited political spending, we will get bad computers and software (not to mention vaccines) and a bought government that looks the other way.

"After 15 minutes the SMM was told that the battalion commander did not grant the SMM permission to proceed," the report said, adding the mission contacted the Ukrainian chief of staff at the government's Joint Center for Control and Coordination, who agreed to investigate.

NATO Launches "Wide-Scale" War Games Near Russian Border, Creates "Line Of Troops"

Washington looks to be throwing more than the full faith and credit of the US government behind Ukraine. On the heels of news that the US is set to guarantee a Ukrainian international bond issue (while Greek pensioners implicitly subsidize the country’s natural gas exports), NATO is in the midst of conducting large scale military maneuvers along the Russian border in a move Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov says encourages “Kiev to pursue a military solution.” Over the course of 10 days, NATO will parade 120 combat vehicles across the region in an effort to prove how quickly the West can confront perceived Russian aggression.

ISIS Leader Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi Trained by Israeli Mossad, NSA Documents Reveal

The former employee at US National Security Agency (NSA), Edward Snowden, has revealed that the British and American intelligence and the Mossad worked together to create the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

Snowden said intelligence services of three countries created a terrorist organisation that is able to attract all extremists of the world to one place, using a strategy called “the hornet’s nest”.

NSA documents refer to recent implementation of the hornet’s nest to protect the Zionist entity by creating religious and Islamic slogans.

According to documents released by Snowden, “The only solution for the protection of the Jewish state “is to create an enemy near its borders”.

Hillary: The New York Times Will Never Tell Us ThisFirst appeared: http://journal-neo.org/2015/03/20/hillary-the-new-york-times-will-never-tell-us-this/

If she wasn’t such an ice-cold-hearted person, one might almost feel sorry for Hillary Rodham Clinton. Now, before she even officially declares her candidacy for the Democratic Party nomination in 2016 to become successor to Barack Obama as President, she lands in the middle of another very ugly scandal. This new scandal might well spell the end of her presidential obsession, and that of her obsessive husband Bill Clinton to get back into the power loop.

US ambassador: Russian veto 'extremely disruptive' on Syria

The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations says Russia's vetoes against holding Syria's government accountable are "extremely disruptive" to the U.N. Security Council's ability to restore peace in the conflict, and have emboldened President Bashar Assad to do "almost whatever he wants."

Liberia investigates how latest Ebola patient got infected, after weeks with no cases

Liberian officials were investigating Saturday how the country's latest Ebola patient became infected, after weeks with no cases of the disease in the country.

Liberia has seen the most deaths in the Ebola outbreak, with more than 4,200 of the more than 10,000 dead across West Africa. Since Liberia discharged its last case on March 5, it was counting down the 42 days that a country must wait in order to be declared Ebola-free.

But on Friday, officials said a new patient tested positive. In a worrying sign, she doesn't seem to be linked to any of the people on an Ebola contacts list and says she has not traveled recently to the neighboring infected countries of Sierra Leone and Guinea, said Dr. Francis Kateh, acting head of the Liberia Ebola Case Management Team.

NBC fears viewers learn what Iran's Foreign Minister said to Ann Curry?


There is something seriously wrong with the media in America. And what NBC did with the interview with Iran's foreign minister is the latest example of that. You can add this example to the many examples I have pointed out on this channel for why we must have a media system that serves the interests of the American people and why if we continue to rely on the people who control our current system we will never have information that represents our interests.

And as James Madison, the father of our Constitution warned, "A popular Government, without popular information, or the means of acquiring it, is but a Prologue to a Farce or a Tragedy; or, perhaps both." Mainstream media doesn't make it easy for the average person to learn critical facts.

Drowning in Garbage — Some Creative Solutions

Janet Phelan
Activist Post

Along with generally unstable governments and economic woes, the developing world has another, somewhat insidious problem: plastic pollution.

International corporations, seeking markets in developing countries, bring along with them a particular form of “baggage”—waste products and refuse. Coca-Cola bottles, Frito bags, Twinkie wrappers—in large part, the packaging solution for multinationals is plastic. The developing world largely lacks the infrastructure in place to deal with this petrochemical polymer influx and plastic garbage has become a major environmental concern, with the impact felt world-wide...

The United States is in the final stages of secret, closed-door negotiations on the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a massive trade agreement with 11 other countries.

Who will benefit from it? One provision hidden in the fine print – “Investor-State Dispute Settlement” – may sound harmless, but don’t let that fool you: ISDS could let foreign companies challenge US laws without ever stepping in an American court.

"Data Trespass," Wyoming's Fancy Name for Ag-Gag

But this is Wyoming, "the cowboy state," and ranchers don't take kindly to being told where their cattle can roam. So last week, Governor Matt Mead signed Senate file 12, a bill that makes it a felony to trespass to unlawfully collect data, and prohibits any data collected "unlawfully" from being used in and civil, criminal or administrative proceeding. Animal rights and environmental activists are calling it an "Ag-gag" law, and, according to Wyoming Public Radio, "Wyoming agriculture interests are supporting the bill to thwart environmental researchers, who, they claim, often collect environmental data to support their legal efforts." But legislators say it's all to do with property rights and privacy.

How a Small Quaker Group Forced PNC Bank to Stop Financing Mountaintop Removal

After five years of action by Earth Quaker Action Team, PNC Bank announced a shift in its policy on March 2 that will effectively cease its financing of mountaintop removal coal mining in Appalachia.

This marks a major turnaround for the nation’s seventh largest bank, which for years refused to budge on this issue. After more than 125 actions, their desire to continue business as usual proved no match for Earth Quaker Action Team, or EQAT, and our allies.

Making “America as user-friendly to Jews as possible.” The Anti-Defamation League and the Indoctrination of our Youth

I’ve recently been occupying my spare time with careful study of the ADL’s “Anti-Bias Lesson Plans and Resources for K-12 Educators.” On the ADL’s website, it is said that these lesson plans, which target children in grades three through twelve, have been designed to help “educators” “integrate multicultural, anti-bias, and social justice themes into their curricula.”

The Madness of Kings and Fools.

It's going to be getting a lot hotter for these plundering psychopaths all around. By now, no one who isn't brain dead can dispute the presence of Mr. Apocalypse in every area of human consciousness. It appears that a wide sweeping awakening is about to, very soon become highly visible. It's been around for awhile and it has been coming for awhile. It's sort of like Spring. It may come later than we might like or earlier than we expect but come it will. The Spring of a raised consciousness it going to come about the same way The Huns visited Rome, or The Moors swept across so much of the eastern world; changing the arts, science, architecture and human thought of the time and leaving a lasting impact right up to this day. In the modern day, Shit has been happening from the top down for some time. Now it's going to start happening from the bottom up and being amplified by the force of the planets and whatever mysterious power guides their movements.

Huckabee: Obama ‘Resents’ Israel Because He ‘Identifies With’ Rest of Middle East

Former Arkansas governor and potential 2016 Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee tried to get to the bottom of President Barack Obama’s “extraordinary disdain” for Israel on Thursday. Ultimately, he decided it must be the president’s “sense of identity with, sympathy for, many of the other Middle Eastern nations” that leads him to “resent” Israel so intensely.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am concerned that Israel's whores in the US Government are now planning to impeach Obama and put a more pro-war Biden into the oval office. This also solves the Democrats' problem of a fading Hillary campaign.

Netanyahu has no diplomatic fig leaf

The current estimate is that in just a few weeks, once he finishes putting his right-wing, ultra-Orthodox coalition together, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will call Zionist Camp leader Isaac Herzog, inviting him to join the coalition. He’ll offer a similar invitation to Yesh Atid head Yair Lapid, too. Netanyahu won’t be doing this out of love or admiration for Herzog or Lapid. He will have no choice.

Relocation of U.S. Personnel From Yemen

Due to the deteriorating security situation in Yemen, the U.S. Government has temporarily relocated its remaining personnel out of Yemen.

We will continue to engage the Yemeni people and the international community to strongly support Yemen’s political transition. We also continue to actively monitor terrorist threats emanating from Yemen and have capabilities postured in the area to address them. As we have in the past, we will take action to disrupt continuing, imminent threats to the United States and our citizens.

Why the Western Alliance Is Ending

World leaders — heads of state especially — tend to be tactful people, whatever else might be said about them. When they discover that one of their number happens to be incredibly arrogant and psychopathic (and some leading psychopaths are skilled charmers; they’re not necessarily blatant about their aggressive intents like Hitler was), they don’t generally publicize the discovery of this unpleasant fact, because doing so would be worse than tactless: it would be downright stupid — it would jeopardize lots of the interdependencies that nations have with one-another. It would be counterproductive.
