Japan’s ruling coalition endorses bills allowing military to fight overseas

Japan’s ruling coalition on Thursday signed off on a package of bills allowing the country’s military to take part in fighting abroad for the first time since Tokyo’s surrender in World War II.
Later in the day, the documents will be approved at the meeting of the cabinet of ministers and then be ready to be presented to the parliament.
The new bills give Japan the right to use the "minimum allowed" force in case of aggression against the country with which it maintains close relations. These states have not been specified.
The use of armed forces will now not be limited to geography. Earlier, this was only possible in case of emergency situations on the territory of Japan and adjacent areas.
The bills also allow the country’s armed forces to provide logistic support, including by ammunition, to the armies of other countries as part of operations approved by the United Nations.

John McCain says he never agreed to join Ukraine’s reform council

John McCain has told BuzzFeed News he never accepted a proposal of participating in Ukraine’s council for reforms.
"I was asked to do it both by Ukraine and [former Georgian leader Mikhail] Saakashvili and I said I would be inclined to do it but I said I needed to look at all the nuances of it, whether it’s legal under our ethics and all that kind of stuff," he said.
"I of course would love do anything I can to help Ukraine, but I’ve got to make sure it’s ok under Senate rules," said McCain, who also chairs the Senate Armed Services Committee.
A decree of Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko on Wednesday listed McCain as one of eight foreign members of the council headed by Saakashvili. Several former ministers of EU countries and a European Parliament member, Jacek Emil Saryusz-Wolski, are also named as the council members. The international council for reforms is an advisory body to the Ukrainian president.

Expert says US will unlikely expand NATO by absorbing Ukraine, Georgia

U.S. will unlikely continue pressing forward with the idea of Ukraine and Georgia’s absorption into NATO but the expansion of the North-Atlantic pact may occur through the incorporation of Balkan and, quite possibly, Central Asian countries, a leading Russian expert said on Wednesday.
Dr. Zolotaryov believes NATO’s expansion might spread to other regions, including the Balkans. "The prospect there is unambiguous, since the Balkan nations will seek to get NATO membership," he said.
He sees a number of objective reasons for this.
"All of them (Balkan nations - TASS) are small enough state but they will have to care for their defence and security," Dr. Zolotaryov said. "Membership of NATO will enable them to minimize these expenses. Recall that European countries spend less than 2% of their GDP for defense."
He believes Central Asia is one more region where NATO’s expansion might spread to.

Russian cosmonaut may be sent to space instead of British singer Sarah Brightman

Earlier this week, Brightman announced that she had to delay her flight to the International Space Station (ISS) scheduled for September for "personal family reasons."
The singer expressed her gratitude to Russia’s space agency Roscosmos, Energia, GCTC [Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center], Star City, NASA and all the cosmonauts and astronauts, "for their support during this exciting time in her life".
"The Space Adventures company has just several days or a week left to find another tourist. Otherwise, anyone of young cosmonauts who have not traveled into space will be sent on flight," the source said.
Another source told TASS that the vacant seat in Soyuz should not be occupied due to the loss of Progress M-27M cargo ship in late April. This will allow delivering to the orbit and then taking back to the Earth some 100 kilograms of cargo.

Nazism of Ukraine’s Western-Backed Government Is Hidden by Western ‘News’ Media

The pro-Nazi core of the Ukrainian government that was installed by the U.S. in February 2014 is too well-documented to be denied, and so the West’s major propaganda media (self-styled as being ‘news’ media) instead simply hide it — most don’t report any of it, but a few report snippets along with excuses to make individual events seem like aberrations, not the core, which they actually are.

The ship, the Iran Shahed, had moved through the Strait of Hormuz and was now in the Gulf of Oman, according to the marinetraffic.com site. But the vessel was not under any naval escort at the moment, Warren said.

Ukraine Makes John McCain A Presidential Advisor — Without Telling Him First

Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko announced that Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) was to take up an official part-time government post in Kiev on Wednesday — apparently without clearing it with McCain, who says he never signed off on the gig.

A decree published on Poroshenko’s website on Wednesday lists McCain as one of eight foreign members of a presidential advisory group headed by Mikheil Saakashvili, the former Georgian leader who has found a new lease of life in Ukraine as a political gadfly and government aide.

McCain told BuzzFeed News, however, that he never agreed to do it. “I was asked to do it both by Ukraine and Saakashvili and I said I would be inclined to do it but I said I needed to look at all the nuances of it, whether it’s legal under our ethics and all that kind of stuff,” he told BuzzFeed News. “I of course would love do anything I can to help Ukraine, but I’ve got to make sure it’s ok under Senate rules.”

Abandoned Uranium Mines Plague Navajo Nation

Two years ago Gregory’s daughter died of lung cancer. Her child, Gregory’s granddaughter, was a victim of Navajo neuropathy, a rare condition named after the only population in which it occurs. For those suffering from the disease, limbs begin to tingle, then lose all sense of touch, and eventually appear curled as claws. Ultimately, the victim dies of liver failure. One study put the average age of death at 10. First described in medical literature in 1976, there is no cure.

In the 1940s, surveyors discovered significant uranium deposits throughout the once worthless desert landscape of the reservation. Between 1944 and 1986, as the US government aimed to cut off all dependence on imported uranium, nearly 4 million tons of ore were extracted to fuel the Cold War nuclear arm’s race. With the end of the war, the mining companies moved out. They were not required to clean up their mess and left behind the legacy of their extraction efforts, including mining waste and abandoned mines.

U.S. to Spend $2 Mil on Attorneys for Illegal Alien Minors

As if it weren’t infuriating enough that American taxpayers are being forced to house, feed, medically treat and educate the never-ending influx of illegal immigrant minors, the Obama administration is also doling out millions of dollars to provide them with free legal representation.

Unlike the criminal justice system, in immigration court the government doesn’t offer free lawyers to those who can’t afford them. This means that illegal aliens who don’t have the money to pay for one must represent themselves in legal proceedings or rely on volunteer attorneys or paralegals provided by immigrant rights groups. This leaves many illegal aliens in removal proceedings without adequate legal representation and that’s simply not acceptable to the president.

Elderly Couple Honk At Off Duty Cop; Cop Breaks Man’s Nose, Smashes Teeth Out With Gun

An elderly couple in St. Louis County found out what happens when you honk your horn at a cop this past weekend, when the officer drew his gun and pistol whipped the man in the face, while wrestling with the woman as she attempted to defend her husband.

Describing the harrowing incident to local reporters, Janet and Donald Akers noted that they were unable to pay their respects to Janet’s deceased mother on Mother’s day, as they were beaten up by the cop before they could get to the graveyard.

Mrs Akers was driving the car, when she was suddenly rushed upon by a large unmarked black truck. Fearing that the truck was going to collide with their vehicle, she honked her horn.

“To let him know, hey, you’re coming over to hit us, and then he backed down, got behind us, and honked and honked and honked, all the way through the intersection,” said Janet.

The Military & the Militia

A standing army has always been used by despots to enforce their rule and to keep their people under subjection. Its existence was therefore considered a great threat to peace and stability in a republic and a danger to the rights of the nation. Since every aspect of government was designed to prevent the rise of tyranny, strict limits and control over the military were considered absolutely necessary. It was essential that the military be subordinate to civilian control.

In the Belly of the Chemical Beast: Hawaiian Activists Confront Syngenta on Its Home Turf

I first met Malia Chun in late 2013, in front of her home on the Hawaiian island of Kaua'i, where she pointed between the houses across the street to a nearby field where the agrichemical giant Syngenta tests and produces genetically engineered corn treated with a considerable amount of pesticide.

I met up with Chun again a year and a half later, this time in Syngenta's front yard in Basel, Switzerland. After a short ride through winding, medieval streets on the city's famously punctual public transit, we took pictures outside the tall office building that serves as Syngenta's global headquarters, where a security guard told us we had no chance of getting inside without an employee escort. Unimpressed, Chun asked two university students sitting nearby if they were familiar with Syngenta. The students said they knew that Syngenta sold pesticides, and that a few weeks ago, demonstrators had hung a sign from the building in protest of chemicals thought to harm bees.

They entice and facilitate “acts of terrorism” by Muslims, radical environmentalists, activists and Black Bloc anarchists, framing these hapless dissidents and sending them off to prison for years. They have amassed detailed profiles of our habits, our tastes, our peculiar proclivities, our medical and financial records, our sexual orientations, our employment histories, our shopping habits and our criminal records. They store this information in government computers. It sits there, waiting like a time bomb, for the moment when the state decides to criminalize us.

AUDIO INTERVIEW: Media, Gov’t Censorship of Jewish Sexual Predators

For 20 years, Michael Lesher has been attempting to shine the light on child sex predators in close-knit Orthodox Jewish communities.

Now Lesher, an Orthodox Jew himself, has a new book out, Sexual Abuse, Shonda and Concealment in Orthodox Jewish Communities, which analyzes how and why cases of child sexual abuse have been systematically concealed in Orthodox Jewish communities. The book examines many such cover-ups in detail, showing how denial, backlash against victims, and the manipulation of the secular justice system have placed Orthodox Jewish community leaders in the position of defending or even enabling child abusers.

The book also examines the generally disappointing treatment of this issue in popular media, while dissecting the institutions that contribute to the cover-ups, including two—rabbinic courts and local Orthodox “patrols”—that are more or less unique to Orthodox Jewish communities.

The former US assistant secretary of the Treasury for economic policy, Dr Paul Craig Roberts, has written on his blog that Beijing is currently "confronted with the Pivot to Asia and the construction of new US naval and air bases to ensure Washington’s control of the South China Sea, now defined as an area of American National Interests."

New UK Law Could Criminalize ‘Politically Incorrect’ Opinions

A chilling comment by British Prime Minister David Cameron suggests that even people who obey the law won’t be “left alone” by the state if they engage in anything the government deems to be “hate speech,” including “bigotry” and potentially criticism of homosexuality and feminism.

Record Antarctic ice: Mawson base might have to relocate

Satellite observations show a new daily record being set for ­Antarctic sea ice every day for the past two weeks. Annual records have also been broken every year for the past three years.

Rob Wooding, general manager of the Australian Antarctic Division’s Operations Branch, said expanding sea ice was now causing serious problems.

Last year, fuel supplies were flown to Australia’s Mawson base by helicopter because the harbour had failed to clear. Dr Wooding said the situation was “unsustainable”.

Amgen Tour’s Big Bear Lake TT threatened by snow

The current forecast for Stage 5, held Friday in Big Bear Lake — at nearly 7,000 feet of elevation — calls for a high of 37F, a low of 27F, and an 80 percent chance of snow. The forecast calls for snow to begin falling around 4 p.m. on Thursday, with eight to 12 inches expected on Friday.

It’s a forecast that has the Amgen Tour abuzz with concern about the potential implications, both for the athletes and the traveling race caravan.

Holding a time trial in cold, snowy conditions brings its own set of hazards, but the bigger question is whether or not team vehicles, and race infrastructure, will even be able to arrive in Big Bear Lake on Thursday evening and Friday morning.

France bans Pro-Palestinian rallies – assigns criminal penalties and hefty fines

This astonishing act of censorship happened only two days after the killings at Charlie Hebdo in January, but I hadn’t heard about it until now.

Incredibly, not only did France’s interior minister ban Pro-Palestinian demonstrations, he assigned criminal penalties not only for those who participate in the rallies, but also those who publish details about these demonstrations on social media!!!

Merde!

Does Wall Street Call the Shots at the FBI?

It is clear to most Americans that Wall Street’s financing of presidential and congressional campaigns is creating too many pals wearing blindfolds about epic corruption on Wall Street. The President, subject to Senate confirmation, selects the U.S. Treasury Secretary, the Chair of the Federal Reserve, the Chair of the Securities and Exchange Commission – all of whom regulate Wall Street, for better or worse. Given that Wall Street collapsed the U.S. financial system in 2008 and has been perpetually charged with new crimes ever since, there is the strong suggestion that regulation isn’t strong enough.

Israel’s Fascist Democracy

For years, Israel and its powerful lobby in the US and Europe have presented the Jewish state as the model of democracy in a region typically referred to as “anti-democratic.” Naturally, many pro-Palestine activists, among countless others, have long argued that the central principles of Israel’s Jewish supremacist ideology, its legal structure, and its society broadly represent anything but democracy.

Such voices have correctly noted that Israel’s policies and very essence run counter to the traits traditionally associated with democracy: the rule of law, respect for minorities, and protection of civil and human rights. While no objective analyst could reasonably dismiss those important points, recent developments in Israeli politics do point to a disturbing, and painfully ironic, trend: Israel’s loving embrace of outright fascism is, to a large degree, an expression of its democracy.

Yet another huge diplomatic victory for Russia

Unless you read Russian or monitor the free blogosphere, you might not have noticed this, but something big just happened in Russia: Kerry, Nuland and a large State Department delegation have traveled to Sochi were they met with Foreign Minister Lavrov and then with President Putin. With the latter they spent over 4 hours. Not only that, but Kerry made a few rather interesting remarks, saying that the Minsk-2 Agreement (M2A) was the only way forward and that he would strongly caution Poroshenko against the idea of renewing military operations.
Kerry Putin

To say that this is a stunning development would be an understatement.

For one thing, this means that the so-called “isolation of Russia” is now officially over, even for the “Indispensable Empire”.

Second, this is, as far as I know, the first official US endorsement of M2A. This is rather humiliating for the US considering that M2A was negotiated without the Americans.

The Frightening GMO Food Fraud

The nub of his argument is that genetically engineered (GE) food products, as brand new substances produced by a means that is radically different from traditional plant breeding, are on the market illegally because American law requires that such new products be extensively tested before they can be sold. To do the required testing over the extended time period required, however, would make the whole GE venture uneconomic, so the law has been skirted by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The skirting has been done by treating GE foods (now generally called genetically modified organisms or GMOs, originally meant to be a euphemism because it sounded better than “engineered”) in the same way as we treat foods that have stood the test of time and are simply generally recognized as safe (GRAS).

Interview with Bin Laden Raid Eyewitness Mohammad Bashir

Turn on CC for subtitles

Watch this interview from Saama TV, Pakistan, with eye witness Mohammad Bashir, a resident of Abbottabad and neighbour to the alleged "compound" where the US government claim Osama bin Laden was hiding. Mohammad gives his eyewitness account of what he saw happen on 2 May 2011 (local time) - an account which fundamentally contradicts the official story. At the 12:30 mark they list two people that lived in the compound "Arshad" & "Tariq." Claims helicopter crashed & exploded that started the fire and everyone died.

Obama did NOT kill Osama Bin Laden


BBC interviewed residents in Abbottabad, Pakistan where Bin Laden's compound was located, and found most local residents share suspicions about whether the former Al Qaida leader was actually killed.
"Are there any facts? Is there any proof provided by America to the whole world to prove this thing true? We have never seen any video, we have never seen any picture of bin Laden, and we have never seen a dead body," Rashid said.

In this video at 1:17 the person is name is Akberharm who owned the house & the US claimed it was Osama.

From this we get that the entire US operation was botched, they killed the wrong guy and that the helicopter that "landed" in the compound crashed.

Here It Comes: Denmark Moving to a Totally Cashless Society

Can you imagine living in a world where your every economic move is tracked and traced and completely reliant on computers?

Headlines today are declaring that not just a few, but millions of smart grid devices are open to cyberattacks, and that smart grid security is basically a joke. Bitcoin seems like a good idea on the surface, but there are too many instances where accounts get hacked, money gets stolen, or worse, people get scammed out of millions. Why?

Because it's all online... it is intangible. You can't physically hold it in your hand, therefore, you can't physically protect it.

Not that fiat currency is so much better, but this is going to be so much worse.

Chicago "Junking" Triggers $2.2 Billion Payment, Deepening Financial Crisis

Citing “expected growth in the city’s highly elevated unfunded pension liabilities,” the rating agency cut the city to junk at Ba1. This is bad news for Chicago for a number of reasons, not the least of which is the fact that Emanuel was looking to refi nearly a billion dollars in floating rate debt into fixed rate notes and borrow another $200 million to pay off the related swaps — clearly this will now be far more difficult. The ratings agency’s actions also given creditors accelerated payment rights, meaning the city could be on the hook for some $2.2 billion in principal and interest on its outstanding liabilities.

SSRI drugs based on fabricated medical myths, says psychiatrist

The science backing selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors, or SSRIs, as an effective remedy for increasing serotonin levels in the brain and helping depression sufferers achieve mental "balance" is entirely nonexistent, warns a prominent psychiatrist in a new peer-reviewed editorial published in the esteemed British Medical Journal (BMJ).

Professor David Healy, head of the Hergest psychiatry unit at the North Wales-based Ysbyty Gwynedd Hospital in the U.K., says the entire premise behind SSRIs and how they supposedly work is "based on a myth." Healy warns that the drugs, which have been linked to provoking both suicidal and homicidal tendencies in some users, have never been scientifically shown to balance anything in the brain.

Top Election Regulator: I Have ZERO Power To Regulate Elections

"The leader of the Federal Election Commission, the agency charged with regulating the way political money is raised and spent, says she has largely given up hope of reining in abuses in the 2016 presidential campaign, which could generate a record $10 billion in spending.

“The likelihood of the laws being enforced is slim,” Ann M. Ravel, the chairwoman, said in an interview. “I never want to give up, but I’m not under any illusions. People think the F.E.C. is dysfunctional. It’s worse than dysfunctional.”
