Scottish orphans used in ‘military experiments’

The allegations centre on at least four institutions where thousands of children are said to have been experimented upon in conditions described as “like something out of Auschwitz”. It is alleged that Porton Down, the top secret military facility in Wiltshire, was involved in trialling drugs for use in the Cold War on youngsters who were regarded as “feeble-minded”.

The War on Drugs Just Got Even More Vile: Police to Begin Inspecting Your Poop, Seriously

The war on drugs could get a boost with a new method that analyzes sewage to track levels of illicit drug use in local communities in real time. The new study, a first-of-its-kind in the U.S., was published in the ACS journal Environmental Science & Technology and could help law enforcement identify new drug hot spots and monitor whether anti-drug measures are working.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How do they tell the difference between illegal drugs and prescription drugs? Opiates are opiates. Cocaine has legitimate use. In some states Marijuana is legal with a prescription.

Union: NYPD Now a 'Wartime' Police Dept.

The New York Patrolmen's Benevolent Association, the NYPD's union, has issued this statement following the deaths of two police officers in an ambush:

"Starting IMMEDIATELY: At least two units are to respond to EVERY call, no matter the condition or severity, no matter what type of job is pending, or what the opinion of the patrol supervisor happens to be. “IN ADDITION: Absolutely NO enforcement action in the form of arrests and or summonses is to be taken unless absolutely necessary and an individual MUST be placed under arrest. “These are precautions that were taken in the 1970's when police officers were ambushed and executed on a regular basis. “The mayor’s hands are literally dripping with our blood because of his words actions and policies and we have, for the first time in a number of years, become a ‘wartime’ police department. We will act accordingly.”

The FBI told their story about North Korea attacking Sony. Before we retaliate, read what they didn’t tell you.

The government blames North Korea of the Axis of Evil for the attack on Sony, a claim quite like the bogus claims of the past we so credulously believed. No matter how often they lie to us, Americans believe what the government tells us. They lie, we believe, their lies are exposed — rinse, repeat. It makes us easy to govern, incapable of self-government, and quite different than our skeptical unruly forebearers. We can do better. This is a great day to begin. Read this and decide for yourself. This is the most complete collection of information I’ve found on this story.

Franciscan Order On Verge Of Bankruptcy After Financial Fraud Uncovered

One of the largest Franciscan religious orders, founded on the humble teachings of St. Francis of Assisi more than 800 years ago, announced it is on the brink of bankruptcy after admitting some of its friars embezzled funds from its accounts.

The Italian news magazine Panorama on Friday (Dec. 19) reported that tens of millions of dollars were missing from the Order of Friars Minor and had been invested in offshore companies.

Panorama also claimed Swiss prosecutors had seized Franciscan accounts in Switzerland because the account holders had allegedly invested in illegal operations that could include arms and drug trafficking.

Democrats Bow Down to Wall Street

This week, Bill speaks with outspoken veteran journalist John R. MacArthur, president and publisher of Harper’s Magazine, about the problems with TPP, which is being negotiated in secret, behind closed doors. MacArthur says that the “free trade” agreement will take jobs away from Americans: “I guarantee you, this is a way to send more jobs [abroad], particularly to Vietnam and Malaysia.”

Obama’s commitment to trade is just another example of his indebtedness to Wall Street for massive campaign contributions. Hillary Clinton, who MacArthur describes as to the right of Americans’ political beliefs, may be scaring off progressives looking to run in 2016 as she is “very much in harmony” with Wall Street.

Drilling Our Way Into Oblivion: Shale Was About Land Gambling With Cheap Debt, Not Technological Miracles

Oh, that sweet black gold won’t leave us alone, will it? West Texas Intermediate went through some speedbumps Friday, but ended over +5%, though still only at $57. Think them buyers know something we don’t? I don’t either. I see people covering lousy bets. And PPT (and that’s not the one we used to spray our crops with).

The damage done must be epic by now, throughout the financial system, but we’re not hearing much about that yet, are we? We will in time, not to worry. Everyone’s invested in oil, and big time too, and they’ve all just become party to a loss of about half of what both oil itself and oil stocks were worth just this summer.

More than 30 cities in Spain have expressed their anger over the so-called ‘gag’ legislation that criminalizes social protest and, demonstrators say, curbs the freedom of expression.

The slogan of the movement is "Gag Law, why do they want to shut us up?" and unites several groups of citizens spearheaded by the "We Are Not Criminals" civil platform.

King of Common Core Pearson Closes Charitable Foundation Amid Legal Troubles

Publishing giant Pearson Inc. is set to rake in billions of dollars in profits related to the implementation of the Common Core standards, but the corporation is now dealing with legal problems exposing some of its suspicious methods that have led to its status as the King of Common Core.

The Pearson Charitable Foundation states it is closing following “a decision by Pearson plc to integrate all of its corporate responsibility activities and functions into its business as a way to maximize social impact and to no longer fund the Foundation as the primary vehicle for its philanthropic and community activities.”

The truth is, however, that corporate Pearson is closing down its charitable foundation following problems with the law that have exposed some of its methods in acquiring business.

"Houston, You Have A Problem" - Texas Is Headed For A Recession Due To Oil Crash, JPM Warns

Fast forward to today when we are about to learn that Newton's third law of Keynesian economics states that every boom, has an equal and opposite bust.

Which brings us to Texas, the one state that more than any other, has benefited over the past 5 years from the Shale miracle. And now with crude sinking by the day, it is time to unwind all those gains, and give back all those jobs. Did we mention: highly compensated, very well-paying jobs, not the restaurant, clerical, waiter, retail, part-time minimum-wage jobs the "recovery" has been flooded with.

Hacking Collective Anonymous Says FBI Is Lying, “North Korea Is Not Source Of Hack”

Having confirmed unequivocally, in a statement by the FBI and reiterated by President Obama, that “the North Korean government is responsible” for hacking Sony, it appears the YouTube-less ‘evidence’ the FBI provided is being questioned by the hacking-collective ‘Anonymous’ and former Lulzsec hacker Sabu. As The Daily Beast reports, the hackers blasted, the North Koreans “don’t have the technical capabilities,” and added “we all know the hacks didn’t come from North Korea, and “all of the evidence FBI cites would be trivial things to do if a hacker was trying to misdirect attention to DPRK.” Meanwhile, on Saturday afternoon, Guardians of Peace, the hacking group that’s so far claimed responsibility for wreaking havoc on Sony, posted a message online mocking the FBI’s investigation – a series of gyrating animated bodies shrieking, “You are an idiot!”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

GREAT MOMENTS IN THE HISTORY OF THE FBI.

"[Your information is] too precise, too complete to be believed. The questionnaire plus the other information you brought spell out in detail exactly where, when, how, and by whom we are to be attacked. If anything, it sounds like a trap."

Obama Signs Bill That Forbids Closing Gitmo, Insists He Will Ignore Provision

On Friday, President Obama signed yet another annual defense bill which explicitly forbids closing the detention center at Guantanamo Bay, leaving a pledge to close the site, made on his first day in office, unresolved.

Despite this, President Obama insisted that he will “do everything I can” to close the site, which apparently did not include not signing anything that bans closing the site.

Obama did accompany the signing with a statement insisting that anything he views as violation of his constitutional powers, which includes the Gitmo provision, would be ignored.

The world’s largest office supply retailer Staples has revealed that up to 1.16 million of its clients’ payment cards might have been “affected” by a massive malware attack on the company’s point-of-sales systems.

“Staples’ data security experts detected that criminals deployed malware to some point-of-sale systems at 115 of its more than 1,400 US retail stores,” the company said in a press release.

CIA Insider Warns: "25-Year Great Depression is About to Strike America"

You will want to remember this date June 22, 2015.

According to one of the top minds in the U.S. Intelligence Community, that is when the United States will enter the darkest economic period in our nation's history.

And alarmingly, he and his colleagues believe the evidence they've uncovered proves this outcome is impossible to avoid.

In an exclusive interview with Money Morning, Jim Rickards, the CIA's Financial Threat and Asymmetric Warfare Advisor, has stepped forward to warn the American people that time is running out to prepare for this $100 trillion meltdown.

Webmaster's Commentary:

Obama vows 'do everything I can' to close Guantanamo: CNN interview

U.S. president Barack Obama said in a TV interview set for broadcast on Sunday that he will do "everything I can" to close the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, after four Afghan detainees held there were sent home.

Obama promised to shut the internationally condemned prison when he took office nearly six years ago, saying it was damaging America's image around the world. But he has been unable to do so, partly because of obstacles posed by the U.S. Congress.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obama said this on CNN just two days after signing a bill to keep Guantanamo open!

Infanta Cristina of Spain to Be Tried on Tax Offence Charges: Judge

The Spanish Duchess of Palma de Mallorca, Infanta Cristina, is to be tried on two tax offence charges.

Judge Jose Castro ruled that the hearings would take place in the second half of next year.

The Duchess of Palma de Mallorca was put on trial for tax offences, based on evidence that she was involved in fraudulent activities carried out by her husband Inaki Urdangain. Urdangain and his former associate Diego Torres have been accused of embezzling $7.3 million in public funds from the non-profit Noos Institute through a company owned by the royal couple.

Immigration, open US borders: the secret reason

NAFTA. Obama, during his 2008 Presidential campaign, said he would take another look at that treaty. It needed to be reexamined.

Perhaps he did take a subsequent look, down to the left and far away, as he was flying toward Hawaii on one of his vacations.

NAFTA. From The Guardian, 4 Jan. 2014, “NAFTA: 20 years of regret for Mexico,” by Mark Weisbrot:

“The most basic measure of economic progress, especially for a developing country like Mexico, is the growth of income (or GDP) per person. Out of 20 Latin American countries…Mexico ranks 18, with growth of less than 1% annually since 1994 [when NAFTA went into effect].

“Millions of Mexicans were displaced from farming, for example, after being forced into competition with subsidized and high-productivity agribusiness in the United States, thanks to NAFTA’s rules.”

French offer boxed cure for anti-Semitism

A Jewish-French organization is using humor to combat the recent surge of anti-Semitism in the country. The group has begun distributing boxes, labeled "Antisémitox, the first treatment against anti-Semitism."

The boxes contain three honey candies, several detox patches, and the text of a law outlining the penalties faced by those who publicly express anti-Semitic views, reports TV5 Monde. The group has manufactured 10,000 such boxes.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If they came out with "Antisemitox" then this could be a suitable antidote to those "Semitox" drugs that these specific hyper-active Jews must surely be over-dosing on -- invariably provoking what they call "antisemitism" in others, as a natural response to the pervasive chauvinism, hysteria, hypocrisy, narcissism, and aggression that these drugs must induce, either by design or as "side-effects".

Israel won't accept "unilateral" recognition of Palestine: Netanyahu

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Thursday, Dec 18 Israel would never accept the "unilateral" recognition of a Palestinian state, after a draft resolution calling for a final peace deal was submitted to the UN, according to Agence France-Presse.

In a statement from his office, Netanyahu accused Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas of "thinking he can threaten us by taking unilateral steps" over statehood.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Did Jews wait for Palestinians' acceptance when they declared Israel as a nation in Palestine..?

Do other nations seek permission of neighbor nations when they seek membership at the U.N..?!!

Isn't building settlements on stolen Palestinians land and annexing Jerusalem by Israel is considered a "unilateral" act...?!!

Bibi shows his hypocrisy and arrogance..." We will not accept unilateral dictats' he said, but it's 'ok' for him to keep Palestinians under occupation for decades.

Pharmacists Charged with 25 Murders in Meningitis Outbreak

Responsible for the deaths of at least 64 people resulting from injections of contaminated medication, the co-owner and supervisory pharmacist of a compounding pharmacy were charged this week with 25 acts of second-degree murder. Sacrificing safety standards for profit, 14 suspects associated with the pharmacy have been charged with 131 counts including conspiracy, mail fraud, racketeering, and violations of the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. Although the International Academy of Compounding Pharmacists (IACP) believes this is an isolated incident, sources assert these crimes occur on a daily basis in compounding pharmacies throughout the nation.

The Customs Union and Israel’s No-State Solution

Theoretically, a customs union carries mutual benefits to the member states. However, as the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development noted in a 1988 report, between 1967 and 1988 the customs union between Israel and the OPT treated the two economies as dualisms that entrenched the status quo, which, at that time, had established the OPT as a reservoir of cheap labor and Israel as a production and export powerhouse.

It’s just that so many people overrate it all and raise it to a level of frenzied hysteria ( I am referring only to the language used; more PC poppycock) and it applies to religious relics and bankrupt traditions, old ruins eaten by jungle and no longer relevant to anything and not much going on at the moment is relevant to anything useful.

Probe reveals major security flaws at Frankfurt Airport – report

Houston P.D. Orders All Officers Turn Off Body Cameras During Protest

“We’re going to go ahead and turn off the personal video devices going forward, so be sure all officers have them turned off when engaging the protesters.” The words cut through me and chilled my spine as I sat, helplessly handcuffed in the back of a Houston Police cruiser after being arrested in the midst of a protest.

Western Narrative on Ukraine Is 100% Phony

Official Washington’s “group think” on the crisis has been driven by a completely phony narrative of what has happened in Ukraine over the past year.

It has become the near-monolithic view of insiders that the crisis was instigated by Putin as part of some diabolical scheme to recreate the Russian Empire by seizing Ukraine, the Baltic states and maybe Poland.

But the reality is that the crisis was initiated by the West, particularly by Official Washington’s neocons, to pry Ukraine away from the Russian sphere of influence and into Europe’s, a ploy that was outlined by a leading neocon paymaster, Carl Gershman, the longtime president of the U.S.-funded National Endowment for Democracy.

Ebola Cover Up: CDC Monitoring 1,400 Active Cases: “Government Effort To Control The Message”, by Mac Slavo

According to Fox News Channel’s investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson, who recently reached out to the Centers for Disease Control, the agency is still very much involved in monitoring individuals for the deadly African-borne virus. The problem, says Attkisson, is that the CDC is covering up the numbers, presumably to minimize panic across the United States.

Attkinson says that following the appointment of Ebola Czar Ron Klain media involvement became almost non-existent because the government stopped releasing statistics and granting interviews in an effort to control the news.

The infectious disease experts I consulted were and remain very concerned about this because if it gets out of control in this country because we will not be able to deal with it.

A lot of the media coverage has gone from overtime to almost nothing since they appointed the Ebola Czar, and I don’t think that’s any accident – I think it’s a strategy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Just because we have not heard about it in the corporate media does not mean that the threat of Ebola no longer exists in this country; but that it has been deliberately made to fall off the proverbial radar concerns me greatly.

Lasting over twice as long as the 2008-09 war on Gaza (formerly the most-brutal massacre since the Nakba), and killing over 800 more Palestinians than in the attack six years ago, the July-August 51-day offensive killed 2,131 Palestinians and injured over 11,000, and destroyed tens of thousands of homes, buildings, businesses, hospitals, Gaza's only power plant and other key components of Gaza's infrastructure.

Obama sheds ‘deporter in chief’ label, oversees steep drop in illegal immigrant removals

Homeland Security Department officials say the changing face of illegal immigration and the reluctance of “sanctuary cities” to help enforce immigration laws have led to the stunning drop in deportations over the past few years.

Statistics released late Friday showed that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement deported about 315,000 immigrants in fiscal year 2014, a steep drop from more than 360,000 deported in 2013 and well below the more than 410,000 the previous year.

IRS seizes woman’s entire bank account because she deposited money ‘suspiciously’

A woman’s entire bank account was seized by the Internal Revenue Service — without so much as a criminal charge — because the agency claimed she deposited money “suspiciously.”

This is the plight of Carole Hinders, who has been running a Mexican restaurant for the last four decades. Accepting cash only from customers at the restaurant, she makes frequent cash deposits to her checking account.

As part of the federal government’s dragnet surveillance of the civilian population, everyone’s banking activities are monitored for “red flag” activities. One of these is frequent cash deposits totaling less than $10,000. Using this vague criteria, Ms. Hinders was thought to fit the profile of a financial criminal.

Belarus In Full-Blown Hyperinflation Panic: Blocks News, Online Stores; Bans All FX Trading For 2 Years

"We have to do something with these Belarussian rubles," exclaims one Belarussian as she shops to turn worthless rubles (BYR) into physical assets. As AFP reports, The Belarussian currency was dragged down by the slide of the Russian ruble last week, leading authorities to impose draconian measures, forbid price increases even for imported goods, and warn people against panic. Now, however, in an effort to stem the flood of hyperinflating domestic prices, authorities have blocked online stores and news websites to stop the run on banks and shops as people scramble to secure their savings. One of the blocked news websites noted, it "looks like the authorities want to turn light panic over the fall of the Belarussian ruble into a real one," calling the blockages "December insanity."

And indeed they have stepped up the insanity, extending the halt in FX trading...

A motorist was viciously beaten, tasered, and maced repeatedly, then charged with 24 separate crimes and maliciously prosecuted for every one of them. He was beaten four (4) times over the course of 11-hours, and not once had he acted maliciously. The incident stemmed from his driving while on an unusually high dosage of legally-prescribed bipolar medication and a subsequent fender bender. Dash-cam footage revealed the extraordinary exaggerations made about the case — 2 years after it took place.

Targeting Russia Escalates. Washington and Wall Street Declare Russia as the Enemy

Washington continues waging political and economic war on Russia. Ukraine’s junta was installed to serve US interests.

Institutionalize fascist rule in Europe’s heartland. Eliminate fundamental freedoms. Threaten regional security.

Serve as a US proxy against Russia. Perhaps instigate hot war. Stop NATO reports continuing Alliance help in its dirty war on Donbas.

Training its military for “Russian aggression.” Washington’s Ukraine ambassador, Geoffrey Pyatt saying:

“As Ukraine continues to defend itself against Russian aggression, the United States will continue to send advisory teams to help improve Ukrainian combat medical care and save the lives of Ukrainian soldiers, in addition to the over $118 million in security assistance we have committed.”

Pyatt left unsaid Washington and other NATO countries supplying lethal aid. Heavy weapons and munitions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And this little gem, reported yesterday at pravda.ru, just about sums it up with regard to the dark, despotic turn of events in Ukraine. Poroshenko has proven himself just another US-sponsored tin pot dictator.

The media that express criticism of Ukrainian President Poroshenko will be automatically equated to “enemies of Ukraine” or “FSB agents,” with all ensuing consequences. Speaking on December 9 at the Verkhovna Rada, the head of the Bloc of Petro Poroshenko faction, Yuriy Lutsenko, said that intelligence agencies of Ukraine should deal with those mass media outlets that criticize the sitting Ukrainian authorities. “Neo-imperialists take efforts to internally disorganize the Ukrainian state. We have recently seen that the deadly germs of separatism that have brought a third of the Ukrainian Donbass to a state of catastrophe start growing in other areas,” said Lutsenko. He demanded the security forces of Ukraine should confront “anti-state elements and spies, as well as the fifth column of the Kremlin.” “We also demand the Bacchanalia of anti-Ukrainian separatism should be stopped in certain media outlets that are fed from abroad and are freely distributed in Ukraine in millions of copies,” said the MP. Noteworthy, Ukraine works to set up the “Ministry of Truth” that will deal with dissent of citizens. The new department is said to be headed by Poroshenko’s relative, Yuri Stets.

How deliciously Orwellian of Poroshenko, to do this right now!!

And who is this Stets guy?!?

He is closely aligned to Poroschenko, and has functioned as head of the Information Security Department of the National Guard, and former producer of the TV station Channel 5, which is owned by Poroshenko.

Pentagon: 1,000 Paratroopers Will Go to Iraq in Late January

There are about 1,600-1,700 US ground troops in Iraq right now, but by the end of January it is expected to be nearly twice as many, according to the most recent Pentagon announcement.

Pentagon Press Secretary Rear Admiral John Kirby today announced that 1,000 paratroopers will be sent to Iraq in late January, and that another 300 troops from other services will be sent in January as well.

The paratroopers’ deployment is scheduled for nine months, and they will once again be labeled trainers, in keeping with the administration’s unwillingness to present them as combat troops, even when they are deployed into combat zones.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears that this administration, as of these deployments, is clearly demonstrating that they collectively suffer from SMD (selective memory disorder).

The single, brutal, lesson that I would have imagined would have been learned, and well-absorbed, by the Pentagon, State Department, Congress, and the White House from the Vietnam War, is that a military presence cannot win what is essentially a ground war from the air.

Apparently, that lesson...remains to be learned by the US government.

New York Times calls for Cheney, Bush officials to be investigated and prosecuted for torture

In a blistering editorial published in the Monday edition of the New York Times, the editorial page editors are calling upon the Justice Department to open an investigation into the torture practices committed during the administration of President George W. Bush with an eye towards prosecuting those who “committed torture and other serious crimes,” along with former Vice President Dick Cheney and other major administration officials.

Under a headline reading, “Prosecute Torturers and Their Bosses,” the board criticizes the administration of current President Barrack Obama for failing “to bring to justice anyone responsible for the torture of terrorism suspects,” during the period following the attack on 9/11.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, as well intentioned as this op ed may be, it will only happen when pigs fly.

And the reason I say this is that the monied and corporate interests wanted Iraq's oil to be sold only in US dollars; that has not changed, and will not change, at least in the short term.

They still want wars, with which to attach and purchase, assets around the world; assets in which neither they nor their children will fight, get tortured, or be maimed for life or die.

For them, it is always completely acceptable that other people's children fight, die,get maimed for life, or get tortured to enhance their corporation's private profits.

Blackwater Lobbyist Will Manage House Intelligence Committee

After lobbyist-run SuperPACs and big money efforts dominated the last election, legislators are now appointing lobbyists to literally manage the day-to-day affairs of Congress. For the House Intelligence Committee, which oversees government intelligence operations and agencies, the changing of the guard means a lobbyist for Academi, the defense contractor formerly known as Blackwater, is now in charge.

Congressman Devin Nunes (R-CA), the incoming chairman of the Intelligence Committee when the House reconvenes in January, announced that Jeff Shockey will be the new Staff Director of the committee. As a paid representative of Academi, Shockey and his firm have earned $80,000 this year peddling influence on behalf of Academi.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

THERE, now; doesn't that make you feel ever so much more....secure, knowing that this professional warmonger is running our nation's Intelligence Committee?!?

Forgive me, but I am having an industrial strength palm to forehead moment, upon reading this.

Debt Collectors Hound Millions of Retired Americans

It may be hard to imagine Grandma unable to pay her bills or Grandpa being hounded by debt collectors. But for millions of Americans, this is the harsh reality of retirement.

Faced with a fixed income and constantly rising cost of living, many seniors now spend their "golden years" juggling bills and fending off debt collectors.

The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) recently reported that for older Americans, debt collection is the top complaint. About one out of three complaints submitted to the agency by seniors is about debt collection. The major complaints include being hounded for medical debts currently in dispute, attempts to collect the debts of deceased family members from their relatives, and illegal threats to garnish Social Security and other federal benefits.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The alleged "golden years" for America's seniors no longer exist.

Many of them will have to work until they croak, particularly in terms of paying off medical bills. After that, their still living spouses will get harassed, and ultimately,their estates, will get hammered.

Woman awarded $1.12 million after police strip-searched her to 'make example' of gun-owning 'right wingers'

A Long Island, New York, mother of three has been awarded $1.12 million by a federal jury after she was falsely arrested while taking pictures at an Air National Guard base in the Hamptons, with a legally owned AR-15 rifle and ammunition in the trunk of her car.

Nancy Genovese, 58, said she was taking photos for a "Support Our Troops" website when she was detained and arrested by Suffolk County authorities, Britain's The Guardian newspaper reported.

"What they took from this woman cannot be measured in money," prominent Long Island civil rights attorney Frederick Brewington told media, following a decision by a federal jury. "There is no reason to treat another human the way they treated her."

China Tests Nuclear ICBMs, US Analyst Warns "Arms Control Is Failing To Increase American Security"

China carried out a long-range missile flight test on Saturday using multiple, independently targetable reentry vehicles, or MIRVs, according to U.S. defense officials. As The Washington Free Beacon reports, the test of a new DF-41 missile, China’s longest-range intercontinental ballistic missile, marks the first test of multiple warhead capabilities for China (the DF-41 is capable of carrying up to 10 warheads and has a maximum range of 7,456 miles, allowing it to target the entire continental United States).

How the CIA Launched the «Financial Pearl Harbor» Attacks on Russia and Venezuela

The net result of the CIA-inspired fracking operations, which the Saudis were warned not to pursue by petroleum engineers working for some foreign-based firms like Schlumberger, is that there will be an oil supply glut for the next 5 years. The glut will be followed by a reduction in Saudi oil production unless new oil fields are brought on line. There is now a major push by U.S. and Canadian oil companies to bring online the Keystone XL pipeline from Canada to the United States to offset the expected sharp rise in oil prices in four to five years. But with Canada suffering financially from the drop in oil revenues, the Keystone XL project is also on financially shaky ground.

Palestine presents peace plan to the UN Council, Israel calls it an act of aggression

The resolution calls for a peace treaty within a year and Israel's withdrawal from the Occupied Territories by 2017. The peace plan also provides for two states within the 1967 borders with Jerusalem as a shared capital, plus bilateral security guarantees. US-led talks in the last 20 years have proven useless. For Avigdor Lieberman, the UN should deal with more serious things, and not go for Palestinians' "gimmicks". Without a solution, despair could engulf Palestinians.

Cyberattack on German steel mill inflicts serious damage

Unknown hackers have inflicted ‘serious damage’ to a German steel mill this year by breaking into internal networks and accessing the main controls of the factory, the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) revealed in its annual report.

The report says that the intrusion into the mainframe system caused significant damage to a blast furnace as the attackers managed to manipulate the internal systems and industrial components, causing outages that disrupted the controlled manner of operation.

Ismaaiyl Brinsley identified as suspect in shooting of 2 NYC officers

A gunman who announced online that he was planning to shoot two "pigs" in retaliation for the police chokehold death of Eric Garner ambushed two officers in a patrol car and shot them to death in broad daylight Saturday before running to a subway station and killing himself, authorities said.

The suspect, 28-year-old Ismaaiyl Brinsley, wrote on an Instagram account: "I'm putting wings on pigs today. They take 1 of ours, let's take 2 of theirs," officials said. He used the hashtags #Shootthepolice #RIPErivGardner (sic) #RIPMikeBrown.

Police said he approached the passenger window of a marked police car and opened fire, striking officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu in the head. The New York Police Department officers were on special patrol doing crime reduction work in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn.

"They were, quite simply, assassinated — targeted for their uniform," said Police Commissioner Bill Bratton, who looked pale and shaken at a hospital news conference.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

My sympathies go to the familes of these officers, as they do to the familes of police violence. It was only a matter of time before officers started being targeting. But the same offocialdom that condones police murder of civilians as "in line with department policy" will take a very different view of these executions, and escalate the violance against the general public.

“Ziad was planning to plant olive trees on private Palestinian land near the illegal outpost of Adei Ad, but was violently prevented from reaching the site by the Israeli military who assaulted and killed him. We thought that after killing the minister, yesterday the military would allow us to plant trees peacefully but we found the same soldiers prepared to use even more violence against us,” Said human rights defender Abdullah Abu Rahmah.

Israeli official warns that another war against Gaza is looming

An Israeli official has warned that a new Israeli war on the Gaza Strip is coming soon. He stressed, however, that wars are only decided on by politicians, local media has reported.

"In the light of the current escalation, war with Gaza is just a matter of time," claimed the head of the Israeli settlement of Eshkol in the Western Negev, Hayim Yilin. The Israeli authorities claimed on Friday that a projectile launched from the south of the Gaza Strip landed in the illegal settlement. It is alleged to have been the third to be launched since the Israeli war on Gaza during the summer.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Recall that back on December 17th, long before the supposed launch of this rocket into an empty lot in Israel, Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon announced that Israel "might be" forced to attack Gaza. How vwery convenient that a "Palestinian" fires a single rocket into an empty stretch of ground in Israel just as Israel is ready to attack Gaza again!

How Nonprofit Hospitals Are Seizing Patients' Wages

On the eastern edge of St. Joseph, Missouri, lies the small city's only hospital, a landmark of brick and glass. Music from a player piano greets visitors at the main entrance, and inside, the bright hallways seem endless. Long known as Heartland Regional Medical Center, the nonprofit hospital and its system of clinics recently rebranded. Now they're called Mosaic Life Care, because, their promotional materials say: "We offer much more than health care. We offer life care."

Two miles away, at the rear of a low-slung building is a key piece of Mosaic—Heartland's very own for-profit debt collection agency.

When patients receive care at Heartland and don't or can't pay, their bills often end up here at Northwest Financial Services. And if those patients don't meet Northwest's demands, their debts can make another, final stop: the Buchanan County Courthouse.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In the US, we have the most expensive health care in the world, and many times, some of the most lousy outcomes.

And even if you HAVE insurance, you can still get financially crucified if that policy doesn't come from a union, an association, or membership organisation of some kind.

We know. With the insurance Mike had when he got ill with pneumonia last year, the insurance we had for him only paid 10% of the bill, and we are stuck with the other 90%. I am already in negotiations with the hospital, and having worked collections myself, understand that as long as you are consistent, and offer a reasonable payment plan, the hospital cannot drag you into collection.

Intelligent, enlightened countries in Europe have figured out how to fund health care, and have a single payer system, where you have to have the basic insurance, but if you want more coverage, you can get it by buying more.

Israel Airstrike Hits Hamas Site In Gaza

Israel's military struck a Hamas site in the Gaza Strip early Saturday in its first airstrike on the Palestinian territory since this summer's war.

The Israeli military said the airstrike on what it called a "Hamas terror infrastructure site" in the southern Gaza Strip was in response to a rocket fired from Gaza into southern Israel on Friday. The rocket fire caused no injuries.

Palestinian residents reported hearing two explosions in the Khan Yunis region of Gaza, in an area that contains training sites for Palestinian militants. No injuries were immediately reported.

Lt. Col. Peter Lerner, an Israeli army spokesman, said Israel's military "will not permit any attempt to undermine the security and jeopardize the well being of the civilians of Israel. The Hamas terrorist organization is responsible and accountable for today's attack against Israel."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This started yesterday, and appears to be open-ended on the part of the Israeli military.

They are most probably bombing schools and hospitals with great glee, even though there were absolutely no reports of injuries where these shells exploded.

I am fully expecting, with Obama off-site, and Americans generally preoccupied with Christmas and New Year's, that the IDF will continue bombing Gaza for as long as they believe they can get away with it.

The Israeli government has got to be made to understand that it cannot continue to wave the Holocaust in the face of the world, while practicing serial genocide against Gazan Palestinians, because this is precisely what is happening.

A few dead here...a few more maimed for live and wounded over there... and the Israeli government thinks, who notices?!?

To the Israeli government and Knesset; the world notices. The question is what the world is willing to do, and I think the will to demonstrate, tangibly, that this is totally unacceptable, is growing among the civilized countries of the world.

The CIA Experimented on Human Beings

Human experimentation was a core feature of the CIA’s torture program. The experimental nature of the interrogation and detention techniques is clearly evident in the Senate Intelligence Committee’s executive summary of its investigative report, despite redactions (insisted upon by the CIA) to obfuscate the locations of these laboratories of cruel science and the identities of perpetrators.

At the helm of this human experimentation project were two psychologists hired by the CIA, James Mitchell and Bruce Jessen. They designed interrogation and detention protocols that they and others applied to people imprisoned in the agency’s secret “black sites.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"...derived from experiments on dogs..."?!?!?

Sorry, will you run that one by me just one more time please?!?

How can dogs provide actionable intelligence, to be "extracted", after they have become totally submissive, through the process of "learned helplessness"?!?

Where is the moral outrage, please, in this country, that such a thing should be allowed to come to fruition?!?

And I say this because humankind has known, since the Catholic Inquisition, that torture only gets the person to say what the torturer wants them to say in order to get the torture to stop.

Torture produces no actionable intelligence; only confessions, period, end of discussion.

And IF the US was in fact a moral country, these men, alongside that unholy trinity of Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld, would be cooling their heels in a prison, awaiting a trial for torture, and crimes against humanity.

And until and unless that happens, the US will simply sink deeper into the morass of dictatorship, more unwinnable wars, and the persecution, and jailing, of whistle blowers and the independent media, working hard to tell the truth, and not for financial gain.

A harsh wind blows across this country, and there is a collective shiver up and down the collective spine of every thinking American.

And the reason for that is a very clear understanding of the Biblical injuction about "That which you sow, you shall also reap."

This country has sown the seeds of death, torture, and war for private financial gain.

And what do we see this December, just days away from a celebration of Christmas?!? More wars, and rumors of wars, both fiscal (as in the agreement with the Saudi government to keep oil prices artificially low to destroy Russia's economy), and shooting wars as well.

I care very deeply about the future of this country, but feel that we are moving in absolutely the wrong directions, in both domestic and foreign policies.

And unfortunately, one of the key prerequisites for working for the last several administrations has been a pathological, intellectually myopic inability to think any action through to its logical conclusion.

Looking at the current situation in Iraq; in Afghanistan; in Libya; and in Yemen, one can very clearly see the outcome of this kind of thinking.

IMF holds back Cyprus bailout funds

The International Monetary Fund has said it will not release a further €88m (£69m/US$108m) in bailout money for Cyprus on Friday after the country’s parliament delayed a key foreclosure law that was due to take effect at the end of December.

“Following today’s suspension of the existing legislation on foreclosure, critical requirements for the completion of the fifth programme review are now no longer met,” the IMF said in a statement. Its board had been set to discuss Cyprus’s progress with the loan programme on Friday and was thought likely to release the next instalment of aid.

Cyprus needed an international bailout of €10bn (£7.8bn/US$12bn) from the European commission and the monetary fund in early 2013, largely due to problems in its banking sector.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were I a betting woman, I would bet against this "buffering legislation" getting passed, and those who lost horrifically, in terms of losing their jobs, or saw their incomes battered, will be even more financially crucified, given the current state of things in Cypress, coupled with the hideous and inhuman greed of the IMF.

Head of Stratfor, ‘Private CIA,’ Says Overthrow of Yanukovych Was ‘The Most Blatant Coup in History’

In a December 19th interview in the Russian magazine Kommersant, George Friedman, who is the Founder and CEO of Stratfor, the ‘Shadow CIA’ firm, says of the overthrow of Ukraine’s President Viktor Yanukovych that occurred on February 22nd of 2014: “It really was the most blatant coup in history.” Perhaps he is saying this because of the videos that were uploaded to the Web which showed it to be so, but this statement by him contradicts the description that is asserted by the U.S. White House and the European Union, and the Western press, which description is that Yanukovych’s overthrow was instead just the result of the U.S. Government’s $5+ billion expense since 1991 to establish ‘democracy’ in Ukraine.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government's narrative, and what actually took place in the coup d'etat, orchestrated by the IMF, the US, and Western Europe, are worlds apart here.

Yes, Viktor Yanukovych, the last duly elected president of Ukraine was so crooked that he had to screw his socks on in the morning; however Poroshenko is absolutely no better, only Western-centric.

And let us be very clear on one issue; after the coup, Crimea, through what was observed to a free and fair referendum, decided to join the Russian Federation; Russia did absolutely nothing wrong here, and traditionally, before the 1950's, Crimea was long considered a part of Russia.

Palestinians criticize Canada for boycotting meeting on Israeli settlements

The top Palestinian diplomat in Canada says the Harper government should not have boycotted a United Nations conference this week that harshly criticized Israeli settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

Said Hamad says Canada should have joined other countries at a conference in Geneva examining the Fourth Geneva Convention, which governs the rules of war and military occupation.

Some 126 countries of the 196 international parties to the convention adopted a resolution Wednesday saying Israel’s construction of settlements does not conform to its international legal obligations as an occupying power.

Along with Israel and the U.S., Canada boycotted the conference, another example of unwavering Conservative support of Israel — a position that has exposed deep differences with the majority of the United Nations.

Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) said storms will continue today and through Thursday, especially in Hokkaido and other parts of northern Japan. They warned of blizzards, tidal waves and avalanches and called for people to refrain from going outside.

US elite has gone far beyond Hitler's impudence and cruelty

Brutal and bloody provocations are a tool of choice of USA's politics. US intelligence greyhounds have taken a hand in white powder from Iraq, in September 11 attacks and torture. These are not conspiracy theories - this is real politics, President of the Academy of Geopolitical Problems and military analyst Konstantin Sivkov believes.

"They have recently published the torture report in the United States, even though those tortures were not happening on the territory of the United States. Only 500 pages of the 6,000-page report have been published. It is unthinkable what US special services were doing to those suspects after the attacks of the Twin Towers. State Department officials said that no one would be punished for any of those tortures. Do you think that the world community will turn a blind eye on that again and continue to admire American democracy?"

Victim says witnessed three boys murdered by VIP paedophiles

Scotland Yard says it is investigating the murders of three boys by what is now known as a ‘VIP sex ring’ suspected to include several high-ranking military officials and politicians.

Detectives say they are looking into accounts of the murders as recited by an abuse victim whom they have described as ‘a credible source’.

According to a shocking account by the abuse victim, who is referred to as ‘Nick’, a Conservative MP had throttled a 12-year-old boy in a depraved sex party at a luxury town house in London sometime in the early 80s.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That makes that particular politician "reliable" to the power structure.

Dog Torture at Bottom of CIA Scandal

In Part 1 of Seligman and Steve Maier’s experiment, three groups of dogs were placed in harnesses. Group 1 dogs were simply put in the harnesses for a period of time and later released. Groups 2 and 3 consisted of “yoked pairs.” A dog in Group 2 would be intentionally subjected to pain by being given electric shocks, which the dog could end by pressing a lever. A Group 3 dog was wired in series with a Group 2 dog, receiving shocks of identical intensity and duration, but his lever did not stop the electric shocks. To a dog in Group 3, it seemed that the shock ended at random, because it was his paired dog in Group 2 that was causing it to stop. For Group 3 dogs, the shock was apparently “inescapable.” Group 1 and Group 2 dogs quickly recovered from the experience, but Group 3 dogs learned to be helpless, and exhibited symptoms similar to chronic clinical depression.

HOW THE SPANISH-AMERICAN WAR CHANGED THE WORLD

Certainly, Hearst and his Jewish rival at the New York World, Joseph Pulitzer, helped to poison the public mind towards Spain. But this idiotic and incomplete analysis ignores the "big picture" of the Globalist hand which moves the chess pieces. The Spanish-American War was neither "pointless", nor insignificant. To the contrary, without the precedent-setting features, tactical acquisitions, and adverse side-effects of this unjust war, and the prolonged US-Philippines War which grew out of it, World War I, the Bolshevik Revolution, World War II and all the other horror stories of the past 100 + years would not have been possible.

Paul Craig Roberts – Russia To Unleash Ultimate Black Swan Against The West

“Suppose the Russian government says, ‘Well, since the attack on the ruble is political and you guys are attacking the ruble and causing us so much trouble, we are just not going to pay off the next traunch of our debt that comes due early in 2015.'

Well, the European banking system would collapse because those banks are terribly undercapitalized. Some of them have loans to Russia that almost absorb the entire capital base. So the Russians don’t even have to default. They can just say, ‘We’re not going to pay this year. We will do it later. We’ll do it when the ruble stabilizes.’ (Laughter).

You can understand the impact of such a decision by the Russians on the West. And given all the linkages and the interconnections — when Lehman Brothers went down it had just about as much adverse affect on Europe as it did the United States.

Head of Stratfor, 'Private CIA,' Says Overthrow of Yanukovych Was 'The Most Blatant Coup in History'

In a December 19th interview in the Russian magazine Kommersant, George Friedman, who is the Founder and CEO of Stratfor, the 'Shadow CIA' firm, says of the overthrow of Ukraine's President Viktor Yanukovych that occurred on February 22nd of 2014: "It really was the most blatant coup in history." Perhaps he is saying this because of the videos that were uploaded to the Web which showed it to be so, but this statement by him contradicts the description that is asserted by the U.S. White House and the European Union, and the Western press, which description is that Yanukovych's overthrow was instead just the result of the U.S. Government's $5+ billion expense since 1991 to establish 'democracy' in Ukraine.

CLG Exclusive: CIA Torture Queen Bought $825K House While Torturing Her Way to the Top

The redacted (525 of 6,700 pages) C.I.A. torture report has revealed possible war crimes and violations of the Nuremberg ban on human experimentation by C.I.A. agents and U.S. military contractors. On December 19, 2014, journalists Glenn Greenwald and Peter Maass revealed the name of the C.I.A. senior officer at the center of the C.I.A.'s torture scandals: Alfreda Frances Bikowsky.

Now, CLG can report that Alfreda Bikowsky purchased (and likely still lives in) a well-appointed ranch house in Mclean, Virginia. Nestled in a wooded lot at 1437 Brookhaven Drive, the well-concealed house is a short 19-minute, 12-mile commute to the Central Intelligence Agency in Reston, Virginia. Formerly owned by Michael E. Geltner, the property was sold to Bikowsky for a mere $825,000 by realtor Michael Chang in April of 2012.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Bikowsky was a senior staff member at the Bin Laden Issue Station in January 2000.[14] She was the direct supervisor of Michael Anne Casey, a CIA staff operations officer who was assigned to track future 9/11 hijacker Khalid al-Mihdhar at an al-Qaeda operatives' meeting in Malaysia in early January 2000.[8] Casey blocked a draft cable written by Doug Miller, a FBI agent detailed to the Bin Laden Issue Station, to the FBI warning that al-Mihdhar had a multiple-entry visa for travel to the U.S.[15][16](p240) Mark Rossini, another FBI agent first assigned to the Bin Laden Issue Station in 1999,[16](p233) testifies that Casey also verbally ordered him to not share information with FBI headquarters about al-Mihdhar or Nawaf al-Hazmi, who was traveling with al-Mihdhar.[1][17] Rossini further states that Bikowsky told congressional investigators in 2002 that she hand-delivered al-Mihdhar's visa information to FBI headquarters. This was later proven false by FBI log books.[1] The CIA shared some details about al-Mihdhar with the FBI at that time, but not that he had a valid visa to enter the U.S.[16](pp244–7)

Interrogation of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed

Bikowsky has been identified as "the redheaded former Soviet analyst who had been in the Bin Laden Unit during Michael Scheuer's supervision"[7](p273) in Jane Mayer's book, The Dark Side.[8] After Khalid Sheikh Mohammed was captured in March 2003, Mayer writes of Bikowsky:

Despite the CIA's insistence on the professionalism of its interrogation program, according to two well-informed Agency sources, one particularly overzealous female officer had to be reprimanded for her role. After Mohammed was captured, the woman, who headed the Al Qaeda unit in the CTC, was so excited she flew at government expense to the black site where Mohammed was held so that she could personally watch him being waterboarded. ... Coworkers said she had no legitimate reason to be present during Mohammed's interrogation. She was not an interrogator. "She thought it would be cool to be in the room," a former colleague said.

North Korea says did not hack Sony, wants joint probe with U.S.

North Korea said U.S. accusations that it was involved in a cyberattack on Sony Pictures were "groundless slander" and that it was wanted a joint investigation into the incident with the United States.

An unnamed spokesman of the North's foreign ministry said there would be "grave consequences" if Washington refused to agree to the joint probe and continued to accuse Pyongyang, the official KCNA news agency reported on Saturday.

On Friday, President Barack Obama blamed North Korea for the devastating cyberattack, which led to the Hollywood studio cancelling "The Interview", a comedy on the fictional assassination of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Israel bombs Gaza for first time since summer assault

Israeli war jets bombed targets in the southern Gaza Strip, witnesses and the army said early Saturday, hours after a projectile from the besieged Palestinian enclave hit open ground in southern Israel.

A spokesman for Gaza's health ministry said there were no casualties in the attack, the first airstrike by Israel on the Palestinian enclave since the summer truce that ended Israel's 50-day assault on Gaza which killed over 2,000 Palestinians, the overwhelming majority of them civilians.

The Israeli army confirmed the strike, which it said "targeted a Hamas terror infrastructure site."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

You need to ask yourself if Palestine would fire a single rocket into Israel just as the resolutions on Palestine are about to go before the Security Council. And a moment's thought suggests that Palestine is not that stupid and this is another Israel false-flag.

John Kerry already indicated the US would veto all Palestinian Resolutions, but this is uncomfortable for the US Government as it underscores that they are slaves to Israel. Better for the US and better for Israel if the resolutions are "interrupted." Hence an Israeli collaborator in Israel fires a fireworks rocket into an empty lot in Israel and Israel uncorks a new major military offensive as their "Final Solution to the Palestinian Question."

Israel Breaks Cease-Fire by Bombing Gaza

Israel’s airstrikes violate the cease-fire that followed the country’s “Protective Edge” military attacks on Gaza earlier this year.

Israeli warplanes launched two airstrikes in eastern Al-Qarara - Khanyounis city, teleSUR’s correspondent in Gaza Noor Harazeen reported.

She said the rocket fire, a “violation of the truce” following Israel’s Protective Edge bombing campaign earlier this year, “is one of the most serious attacks on Gaza.”

Other people in the area have reported that there are blackouts in part of Gaza, such as Khan Younis.

Germany To Try Auschwitz Guard Charged With 300,000 Counts Of Accessory To Murder

A German court says a 93-year-old man charged with 300,000 counts of accessory to murder for serving as an SS guard at the Nazis' Auschwitz death camp will go on trial early next year.

The Lueneburg state court said Tuesday its review of the prosecution's case against Oskar Groening determined there was enough evidence to proceed with the trial. The starting date has not been announced.

Groening has openly talked in interviews about his time as a guard and says he witnessed atrocities but didn't commit any crimes himself.

But the officials in the US who actually committed acts of torture, including torturing to death, remain free.

On 12/12/72 Marie-Hélène de Rothschild, member of the most powerful elite family in the world, held a Surrealist Ball at Château de Ferrières, one of the family’s gigantic mansions. While these events are usually extremely secretive, photographs of this particular Ball surfaced on the web. In short, it is a mix of an “Eyes Wide Shut”-style masked ball mixed with a Lady Gaga-style pop video. I’m not even kidding. Indeed, behind the fun and games, these pics reveal the underlying ideology and the mind state of the occult elite – which is apparently also used in the countless MK/Illuminati theme music videos discussed on this site.

9th Circuit to judge: Lift ban on licenses for dreamers

For more than two years, Gov. Jan Brewer has waged a costly legal battle to keep driver's licenses out of the hands of young undocumented immigrants known as dreamers.

She has lost one court decision after another.

On Wednesday, less than three weeks before she leaves office, Brewer was dealt another defeat when the U.S. Supreme Court cleared the way for "dreamers" to get licenses.

The court denied Brewer's request for a delay that would have allowed her to keep denying licenses to dreamers while she prepares an appeal to the justices.

Report: FBI's Anthrax Investigation Was Flawed

The Government Accountability Office says the science the FBI used to investigate the 2001 anthrax attacks was flawed.

The GAO released a report Friday on its findings. The agency didn't take a position on the FBI's conclusion that Army biodefense researcher Bruce Ivins acted alone in making and sending the powdered spores that killed five people and sickened 17 others.

The report adds fuel to the debate among experts, including many of Ivins' co-workers at Fort Detrick in Frederick, Maryland, over whether Ivins could have made and mailed the anthrax-filled envelopes.

The GAO said the FBI's research did not provide a full understanding of the methods and conditions that give rise to genetic mutations used to differentiate between samples of anthrax bacteria. The report calls this a "key scientific gap."

Unlike any hack attributed to North Korea in the past

North Korea has been blamed for a string of hacks in the past, and it’s generally accepted that the country has the capability to hack and attack companies. But no previous attack attributed to North Korea—or any nation-state—has been so public and so noisy. In the past, attacks happened, North Korea was suspected, and then sometimes the country was later blamed. It rarely said anything, except for an initial denial. This time around, the hacker group has posted messages online taunting Sony and telling the FBI they cannot be caught. Early on, they were also interacting with reporters.
