L.A. Times Suggests Military Coup Against President Trump

Jamie Kirchick, writing in the Los Angeles Times, asks readers to imagine a military coup against a future President Donald Trump — and argues why one would be necessary.

Kirchick cites the example of the recent failed coup in Turkey as a source of inspiration:

Americans viewing the recent failed coup attempt in Turkey as some exotic foreign news story — the latest, violent yet hardly unusual political development to occur in a region constantly beset by turmoil — should pause to consider that the prospect of similar instability would not be unfathomable in this country if Donald Trump were to win the presidency.

Kirchick goes on to argue that Trump is a nascent authoritarian, whose illegal military orders — such as torturing terrorists — the military would be required to ignore, and then resist by force.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As reported at globalresearch.ca:

As a 2008 presidential aspirant, she addressed AIPAC’s annual convention saying: The United States stands with Israel now and forever. We have shared interests….shared ideals….common values. I have a bedrock commitment to Israel’s security. (O)ur two nations are fighting a shared threat” against Islamic extremism. I strongly support Israel’s right to self-defense (and) believe America should aid in that defense. I am committed to making sure that Israel maintains a military edge to meet increasing threats. I am deeply concerned about the growing threat in Gaza (and) Hamas’ campaign of terror. No such campaign exists. The only threats Israel faces are ones it invents. Clinton repeated tired old lies saying Hamas’ charter “calls for the destruction of Israel. Iran threatens to destroy Israel.” “I support calling the Iranian Revolutionary Guard what it is: a terrorist organization. It is imperative that we get both tough and smart about dealing with Iran before it is too late.” She backs “massive retaliation” if Iran attacks Israel, saying at the time: “I want the Iranians to know that if I’m president, we will attack Iran. In the next 10 years, during which they might foolishly consider launching an attack on Israel, we would be able to totally obliterate them.” She endorses using cluster bombs, toxic agents and nuclear weapons in US war theaters. She calls them deterrents that “keep the peace.” She was one of only six Democrat senators opposed to blocking deployment of untested missile defense systems – first-strike weapons entirely for offense.

So, there you have it, on the record: Hillary Clinton is prepared to go to war with Iran (and most probably Russia, whose military and civilian leadership have all vowed to protect it militarily.)

Wall Street Angry that Donald Trump Says “Restore Glass-Steagall Act”

What produced the 2008 crash was the Clinton-Republican Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, named after the three conservative Republicans (Phil Gramm, Jim Leach, and Tom Bliley) who wrote it. Sanford Weill, then merely the head of Travelers Insurance, was a financial empire-builder who wanted his firm to buy Citibank, so as to produce the first financial conglomerate, Citigroup — a merger which the Glass-Steagall Act would have blocked from happening. Weill’s Clinton-Administration friends Robert J. Rubin and Lawrence Summers had no trouble convincing their boss to say yes to Gramm-Leach-Bliley, though this would toss out the core of Democrat FDR’s lasting heritage and restore the cause of the Great Depression: Wall Street’s gambling with depositors’ savings — gambling with assets that are so crucial the government would be politically compelled to backstop to prevent bankrupting tens of millions of people, savers who had made no error.

Judge Makes Stunning Ruling In Bundy Case

The Las Vegas Review Journal reports that without the benefit of a public hearing, U.S. Federal Judge Peggy Leen has issued an order ruling that no transcripts, reports or witness statements of any kind may be disclosed by defense teams for all 19 defendants in the 2014 armed standoff between Cliven Bundy’s camp and the FBI.

Leen made her decision Friday, citing potential death threats against prosecutors as justification.

Leen continued saying that a “common law or First Amendment right” for the press and the public to access the government’s pretrial evidence does not exist, though all information obtained through “open sources” such as the internet or social media would be accessible.

Ammon Bundy’s attorney, Dan Hill, was not pleased with the judge’s decision.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, in Judge Leen's courtroom, the First Amendment to the Constitution does not exist, with regard to the government's pre-trial evidence.

I have to ask: why?!?

What is the BLM so desperate to conceal here?!?!?

Liberal GQ Magazine Writer on Mother of Benghazi Victim: ‘I would like to beat her to death’

Liberals lost their minds when Pat Smith spoke at the GOP convention last night. They can’t stand hearing someone who lost her son (and was lied to by Hillary Clinton about why it happened) telling the truth.

A liberal writer for GQ Magazine named Bethlehem Shoals even said on Twitter that he wanted to beat her to death.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

An apology followed, but it had all the fake sincerity of something said by a really bad snake oil salesman.

Should Hillary get elected, one of her first acts as President will be to establish her very own "Ministry of Truth", which will ruthlessly persecute anyone with even a slightly different narrative than her own.

She will order "belief and allegiance" to anything she says, no matter how much of a lie it may be, and declare any other response "treason", to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

And I am certain that Bethlehem Shoals will be on her "short list" as the Department Director for that, having tweeted that he wanted to beat Pat Smith to death (for telling the truth).

Lawsuit Filed: Court To Count Real Bernie Sanders Vote Tally

Lawsuit Filed: Court To Count Real Bernie Sanders Vote Tally
Posted on July 19, 2016 by Baxter Dmitry in News, US // 8 Comments
Bernie Sanders earned more pledged delegates than Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primaries and now a long awaited lawsuit has finally been filed in Ohio alleging that systematic and coordinated election fraud stole the presidential nomination from Sanders.

Bernie Sanders earned more pledged delegates than Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primaries and now a long awaited lawsuit has finally been filed in Ohio alleging that systematic and coordinated election fraud stole the presidential nomination from Sanders.

Filed by the Institute for American Democracy and Election Integrity, the lawsuit presents evidence of statistically impossible differences between exit polls and electronic vote totals.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, this effort could well be characterized as way too little, way too late.

The raw data has probably been expunged, or hidden in such a way as to be irrecoverable by Clinton's people.

Gallup Economic Confidence Index plunges while stock market near record: Stock Market decoupled from financial well being of average Americans.

Gallup releases an Economic Confidence Index which should reflect the overall sentiment of Americans as it pertains to the economy. With the stock market near record highs and the housing bubble market soaring, you would expect average Americans to be smiling from ear to ear with glee. But when you click on over to Gallup, the chart looks downright gloomy like finding out you just failed a midterm exam you studied so hard for. While Gallup may be stumped and scratching their head as to why this divergence is there, I feel we have touched upon a few points as to why this is occurring. First, half of Americans don’t even own one stock. Next, you have many U.S. companies making large profits abroad. Good for the company but that doesn’t translate necessarily into a better financial position for most Americans. Housing values being inflated only keeps Americans from buying as reflected in a generationally low homeownership rate.

US PUBLIC EDUCATION: BULLSHIT TO TRAIN STUPEFIED WORK ANIMALS. PHYSICAL EDUCATION FAILS TO DECLARE US NATIONAL EMERGENCY OF UNFIT, UNHAPPY HUMANS IN BODY AND MIND

This 11-part series addresses an overarching fact about public education: its design of intentional curricular lies of omission and commission to keep our children and the general public powerless, relatively stupid, and controlled work animals.

Importantly, I do not blame education professionals working in good-faith effort to produce high-quality learning from our children; public education exists in a matrix of control for ongoing empires that I’ll explain in detail within the series’ sections. That said, anyone truly educated in one’s field gradually discovers that public education is a ridiculous substitute for what’s most important to teach and learn. This is Emperor’s New Clothes obvious when pointed to, with this paper’s content including factual assertions that no counterarguments exist outside of shallow and misleading bullshit.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Common Core does a brilliant job of making kids think they are being educated, when they are really being indoctrinated to believe particular narratives which are useful to them being completely controlled by a government that cares absolutely not about their futures.

As long as this festers in our classrooms, Americans will never again be competitive against those countries with the best educational outcomes.

As reported at fairreporters.net last year, in their assessment of the best educational systems in the world, here are countries rated from best to worst educational systems, in terms of math and science:

1. Singapore 21. Czech Rep 41. Turkey 61. Jordan
2. Hong Kong 22. Denmark 42. Serbia 62. Argentina
3. South Korea 23. France 43. Bulgaria 63. Albania

URBAN FARMERS TARGETED BY CITY, ISSUED MULTIPLE THREATS AFTER THEIR PROPERTY WAS VANDALIZED

Southeast Oklahoma City residents Charles and Julie Henry face a blatantly unconstitutional invasion of their rights thanks to a stifling change to a city ordinance making vandalism to their property essentially a crime — by them.

Though the Henrys complied with the code, albeit a bit late due to a prohibitive financial situation, an opportunistic code enforcer triggered a chain of events no law-abiding property owner should ever be subjected to — including the possibility their property may be raided by Oklahoma County Sheriffs under a blanket warrant in direct violation of the Fourth Amendment.

According to a GoFundMe page set up to assist the family’s legal battle against the City, their low-income neighborhood typically experiences an outbreak of vandalism each spring — which the city promptly cleans up to discourage other vandals from copying.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is a massive, vicious act of over-reach by city officials, who should, themselves, be sacked for having done this to a couple just barely able to survive.

Access to Wikileaks blocked in Turkey as it releases emails

Access to the Wikileaks website in Turkey has been blocked after the group announced, following a failed coup by Turkish military units, that it would release a trove of documents on the country's power structure.

There was no immediate statement Wednesday from Turkey's Telecommunications Board, a government agency that regulates access to websites.

The Turkish government has previously banned access to websites deemed to be carrying material critical of Turkey, including YouTube and Twitter. Some opposition media websites were blocked following Friday night's coup attempt, which was quashed by security forces loyal to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

There Will Be No Second American Revolution: The Futility of an Armed Revolt

If there is to be any hope of reclaiming our government and restoring our freedoms, it will require a different kind of coup: nonviolent, strategic and grassroots, starting locally and trickling upwards. Such revolutions are slow and painstaking. They are political, in part, but not through any established parties or politicians.

HOW THE CLINTON FOUNDATION GOT RICH OFF POOR HAITIANS

In January 2015 a group of Haitians surrounded the New York offices of the Clinton Foundation. They chanted slogans, accusing Bill and Hillary Clinton of having robbed them of “billions of dollars.” Two months later, the Haitians were at it again, accusing the Clintons of duplicity, malfeasance, and theft. And in May 2015, they were back, this time outside New York’s Cipriani, where Bill Clinton received an award and collected a $500,000 check for his foundation. “Clinton, where’s the money?” the Haitian signs read. “In whose pockets?” Said Dhoud Andre of the Commission Against Dictatorship, “We are telling the world of the crimes that Bill and Hillary Clinton are responsible for in Haiti.”

Operation Gladio : The Nice atrocity brings it to mind, says Paul Craig Roberts

It looks like a permanent state of martial law in France will be one consequence. This shutdown of society will also dispose of the protests against capitalist puppet Hollande’s repeal of France’s labor protections. Those protesting the take-back of their hard-earned rights will be closed down under the martial law. Amazing how convenient the attack was for global capitalism, the primary beneficiary of Hollande’s new “labor reform.”

CIA REBELS BEHEAD KID AND OTHER RECENT U.S. SUCCESSES IN SYRIA

The U.S. "regime change" operation in Syria recently tallied up some major successes. The Syrian Democratic Force, a U.S. sponsored group of mostly Syrian Kurds, is besieging the Islamic State held eastern city of Manbij. According to the UN's Human Rights commissioner 70,000 civilians in Manbij are cut off from all supplies. We have yet to hear calls for an immediate breaking of the siege or for enforced air drops of supplies to these people. Where are all the R2P fans in the Obama administration and all the well paid Syrian opposition propaganda groups on this? That the U.S. has managed to avoid any questions about this siege is surely a success.

The world of accepted ideas was coming apart, and no one caught the new mood better than the New York Times’s David Brooks, a man who has spent his career describing the inner lives of the nation’s prosperous white-collar elite. Ordinarily a dealer in witty aphorisms and upper-crust humor, Brooks now wrote a column entitled “Are We On the Path to National Ruin?” in which he speculated darkly about the possibility of fascism in America. “The crack of some abyss opened up for a moment by the end of last week,” he wrote. “It’s very easy to see this country on a nightmare trajectory.”

'It's Working:' New Analysis Shows Insurers Losing Tens of Millions Annually on Obamacare

Via John Sexton, here's a Politico report on the 'Affordable' Care Act's unstable, unsustainable status quo:

For the insurance companies doing business in the state–the ones issuing policies to those 600,000 people–Obamacare has turned into a financial sinkhole. United Health Group, the nation’s largest insurance company, is pulling out of the Obamacare business in North Carolina next year. Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina, which dominated the individual market with more than a half-million customers, reported that losses on its Obamacare business in 2014 and 2015 topped $400 million. The insurer said that figure includes government payments designed to shield insurers from big losses during the early years of Obamacare. The only other current competitor, Aetna, wants to hike rates by nearly 25 percent next year...

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Stating that something "is working" by fiat, and not paying attention to the real numbers here, including the number of people who can no longer get health insurance, is creating a huge "lost their reality license moment", for both Clinton and Obama.

Should Police Use Bombs To Kill Criminals?

In the wake of the two seemingly outrageous slayings of African American men by police in Minnesota and Louisiana and the equally heinous retaliatory killings of five police officers in Dallas by a black former Army Reservist, questions have been raised in all three cases about excessive police behavior.

Police surrogates on the cable TV networks were sent into a state of apoplexy that some security analysts, while the Dallas police department was still grieving, raised eyebrows about the use of an exploding bomb, delivered by a robot, to kill the Dallas shooter. Whether intentional or not, this argument was an attempt to use the legitimate grief of the police families to shield the department from a debate about the aggressive military tactics used to kill the shooter.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Although my heart goes out to those slain officers, their families, and their friends, I did have a moment of pause about how their killer was executed; by an armed robot, for the first time in police history.

Yes, the crime committed by Johnson was heinous and horrific; but I am very concerned about this technology becoming "legitimized" for police work in the future in this country.

How soon will such technology be used against peaceful protesters, who have a reasonable gripe about what their government is doing in America?!?

Unfortunately, the way "due process" seems to have been ripped out of the American judicial process, my bet would be...soon.

Bahrain Says US, UK Criticism ‘Unacceptable Interference’

The Bahraini government has issued a statement angrily condemning the US and Britain for their “unacceptable interference” in internal policy, after the two nations criticized the government’s ban on the largest opposition group in the nation.

The tiny nation of Bahrain has struggled with its treatment of their opposition since the Arab Spring. The royal family and by extension the government are Sunnis, but a majority of the population are Shi’ites. This has sparked repeated protests, with the Shi’ites claiming they are discriminated against in top positions around the country.

The banning of al-Wefaq, a Shi’ite group, continues that, with the US State Department calling the group a “nonviolent opposition,” and warning that banning them was undermining regional stability in the Persian Gulf.

A joint statement was issued today by several top Shi’ite clerics, saying they believe that the ban of Wefaq is part of a larger attack on their existence and identity.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is one thing that the US State Department, miraculously, has gotten right, in its analysis of the situation in Bahrain.

So far, protests against the government's policies against the Shiites have been remarkably restrained; but there may be a point of boiling-over anger, on the part of the Shiite community, which cannot be restrained by police or military action, even with importing Saudi Arabian troops.

We could even, potentially, be looking at a revolution here, and the complete abolishment, or exile, of the Al-Khalifa monarchy.

And I would like to strongly caution the Al-Khalifa monarchy and the Bahraini government that hubris...can have some very terrible unintended consequences.

An Illegal Military Strategy Disguised As Technological Advance

Think of it as the Trojan Drone, the ultimate techno-weapon of American warfare in these years, a single remotely operated plane sent to take out a single key figure. It’s a shiny video game for grown ups — a Mortal Kombat or Call of Duty where the animated enemies bleed real blood. Just like the giant wooden horse the Greeks convinced the Trojans to bring inside their gates, however, the drone carries something deadly in its belly: a new and illegal military strategy disguised as an impressive piece of technology.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Unfortunately, it is only a question of time regarding how long it will be that we see this technology being used here in the US, unless there is a massive, peaceful move on the part of all Americans to prevent it.

And please, don't think, "Wow, that can't happen here!"; because the precedent has already been set for extrajudicial assassinations right here at home, and in a circumstance many Americans might have applauded.

Micah Johnson, who shot and killed police in Dallas last week, was taken down with a robot, armed with a bomb.

This is the first time in police history in this country that this has happened; but I can nearly guarantee you, it will not be the last.

VIDEO: CHILD BODY SLAMMED, CHOKED BY COP AFTER VOICING CONCERN OVER ANOTHER CHILD’S VIOLENT ARREST

A video uploaded to Facebook this week shows multiple Hyattsville police officers involved in a violent arrest of what appears to be middle school children.

While it is unclear what started the altercation, the video does not lie.

As the video begins, an officer appears to be arresting a young white school child. The child seems compliant. However, the officer is seen dangerously twisting his arm.

When the adolescent bystanders see this unnecessary violence, they begin to voice their concern.

One young person becomes particularly concerned with the way the officer is treating the other child, so he quickly becomes the most outspoken. This outspokenness apparently enrages the responding officers.

As the officer, who appears to be a sergeant, walks up to the scene, he shoves the Hispanic student who was standing up for the white student. This assault seems to be entirely unprovoked.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To parents in Maryland: take your kids out of public school NOW. Home school them; they will be far richer, academically, for it.

And to those people who can move out of this city, do it now; take the financial base away from here, because if police are allowed to treat kids like this, it doesn't deserve your tax dollars.

Explain to Mayor Hollingsworth , politely, why you are doing this. And make sure you include a link to this video.

FEDERAL AGENTS WENT UNDERCOVER TO SPY ON ANTI-FRACKING MOVEMENT, EMAILS REVEAL

When more than 300 protesters assembled in May at the Holiday Inn in Lakewood, Colorado — the venue chosen by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) for an auction of oil and gas leases on public lands — several of the demonstrators were in fact undercover agents sent by law enforcement to keep tabs on the demonstration, according to emails obtained by The Intercept.

The “Keep it in the Ground” movement, a broad effort to block the development of drilling projects, has rapidly gained traction over the last year, raising pressure on the Obama administration to curtail hydraulic fracturing, known as fracking, and coal mining on federal public lands. In response, government agencies and industry groups have sharply criticized the activists in public, while quietly moving to track their activities.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I firmly believe that all hydraulic fracking should be done within two feet of the homes oil executives should be mandated to live in, so that they, and their families. would experience all the symptoms and consequences of fracking, firsthand.

Of course, that will happen only when pigs fly.

But this surveillance demonstrates, incontrovertibly, that Obama is no less beholden to his corporate masters than are his Republican colleagues.

ERDOGAN UNLEASHES UNPRECEDENTED CRACKDOWN: FIRES ALL UNIVERSITY DEANS; SUSPENDS 21,000 PRIVATE SCHOOL TEACHERS

Over the weekend, after the initial reports of the purge unleashed by Erdogan against Turkey's public, we previewed the upcoming, far more dangerous counter-coup as follows: "it was the next step that is the critical one: the one where Erdogan - having cracked down on his immediate military and legal opponents - took his crusade against everyone else,including the press and the educational system."

But while Turkey's press is already mostly under Erdogan's control, it is the educational witch hunt fallout that is far more troubling, and just as expected over the past hour we have gotten a glimpse of just how extensive the Turkish's president cleansing of secular society will be, when the state-run Anadolu news agency reported that Turkey's ministry of education has sacked 15,200 personnel for alleged involvement with a group the government claims is responsible for Friday's failed coup.

OVER 1 MILLION? WHY WE MAY NEVER KNOW HOW MANY CIVILIANS HAVE DIED IN IRAQ WAR

In some ways, the Chilcot Inquiry was a success for the anti-war crowd, as it confirmed everything we already knew about the war in Iraq. In other ways, it was a complete disappointment because it failed to dig into the fundamental problems underlying the U.S. and U.K.’s pursuit of this horrific, illegal war.

As the U.S. presence in Iraq continues to increase thirteen years after the initial U.S.-U.K. led invasion, it is time to ask at least one hard question the Chilcot Inquiry failed to ask.

How many civilians in Iraq have lost their lives because of the 2003 invasion?

Unfortunately, this is something the Chilcot Inquiry refused to investigate. Section 17 of the Chilcot Inquiry Report stated:

It is beyond the scope and abilities of this Inquiry to establish independently the number of fatalities caused by conflict in Iraq, or the broader human cost of the conflict to the Iraqi people.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There are four disgustingly foul sociopaths who should be cooling their collective heels at the ICC, for crimes against humanity, regarding this war to insure that Western companies dominated the flow of oil from Iraq, and the selling of Iraq's oil only in US dollars.

Their surnames are Blair, Bush, Rumsfeld, and Cheney.

But of course, money buys much in the Western world, and that includes protection and privilege, and - in essence - never having to say one is sorry for the horrific crimes one has committed.

But there may be an interesting, ironic turnabout coming in Iraq. As reported yesterday at Reuters:

Powerful Shi'ite Muslim cleric Moqtada al-Sadr instructed his followers on Sunday to target U.S. troops deploying to Iraq as part of the military campaign against Islamic State. U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter said on Monday the Pentagon would dispatch 560 additional troops to help Iraqi forces retake the northern city of Mosul in an offensive planned for later this year. Sadr, who rose to prominence when his Mahdi Army battled U.S. troops after the 2003 invasion, posted the comments on his official website after a follower asked for his response to the announcement. "They are a target for us," Sadr said, without offering details.

The US-installed pupped government of Al-Abadi has been an abject, corrupt, and utter epic fail, in terms of not at all meeting the urgent needs of the Iraqi people.

So what happens if Al-Sadr galvanizes the Iraqi people with a popular revolution which drives out the current government, the American troops, and the ISIL jihadists?!?

Should that happen, I would almost be willing to bet that Iraqi oil will no longer be controlled by Western interests, or only sold for the US dollar. It may well, at that point, be sold for the Russian Ruble, the Iranian Rial, the Euro, or the Yuan; in fact, anything BUT the dollar.

There is a Biblical injunction about reaping what one has sown; in Iraq, the US and UK have sown death and destruction for money, and that is very possibly about to come crashing down on their heads, financially, should there be a national revolution in Iraq.

Judge orders key Bundy evidence in Bunkerville case withheld from the public

Choosing secrecy over transparency, a federal judge has issued a protective order withholding the bulk of the government’s evidence from the public in the Bunkerville standoff case.

The four-page order, written by U.S. Magistrate Judge Peggy Leen, prohibits defense teams for all 19 defendants from publicly disclosing grand jury transcripts, FBI and police reports, witness statements and other documents the government collected during its investigation into the 2014 armed standoff between Bundy family forces and law enforcement.

Leen issued the order without a public hearing and in the face of opposition from most of the defendants, including Bunkerville rancher Cliven Bundy and his four sons, and the Las Vegas Review-Journal and other media.

Former Clinton Associate Exposes Fake News Agenda

“As a journalist, to say these words, I can’t tell you with what a heavy heart I say them, but we’ve entered an era in which it is not crazy to assess news events to see if they’re real or not real, in the United States, as well as overseas, and if fact, it’s kind of crazy not to.”

Thelastamericanvagabond.com reports:

The resounding applause that followed that extremely impactful statement serves to demonstrate quite clearly how many Americans are becoming acutely aware of their own government’s manipulation of their lives. There is a reflexive vilification of anyone speculating about the idea of a false flag in today’s society, regardless of its historical precedent, because they become a “Conspiracy Theorist” and are cast as “the crazy few.” Yet it is becoming increasingly apparent that those who are at least questioning the mainstream narrative, are in fact the many.

VIDEO: CHILD BODY SLAMMED, CHOKED BY COP AFTER VOICING CONCERN OVER ANOTHER CHILD’S VIOLENT ARREST

A video uploaded to Facebook this week shows multiple Hyattsville police officers involved in a violent arrest of what appears to be middle school children. While it is unclear what started the altercation, the video does not lie. As the video begins, an officer appears to be arresting a young white school child. The child seems compliant. However, the officer is seen dangerously twisting his arm.

Delegates Walk Off RNC Floor

BREAKING: Delegates Walk Off RNC Convention Floor After Rules Adopted

All delegates from the Iowa and Colorado delegations have walked off the RNC convention floor after rules were adopted without a floor vote, defeating the last remaining anti-Trump effort. Thousands of signatures were submitted by 11 different delegations to force a floor vote, but were not considered.

Shortly after the rules were adopted the Chair left the stage, leaving it empty for a number of minutes.

"I've never seen the chair abandoned like that," Utah Senator Mike Lee said. "I have no idea what is going on right now, this is surreal. The Chair (@Reince) walked off the stage and abandoned his post."

Never Trump Petition Fails: The Photos You Need to See

The Republican National Convention nearly erupted into chaos when “Never Trump” supporters thought they were being denied their right to a roll call vote. They pushed to have a roll call vote to unbind delegates, so they could vote for the Republican nominee according to their conscience rather than according to their state's voting results. The Never Trump delegates believed they had enough states signed on to allow for a roll call vote, but were surprised to learn that three states had withdrawn their signatures.

Turkish Prosecutors Raid Incirlik Airbase Housing US Warplanes And 50 Nuclear Bombs

The saga surrounding the Turkish Incirlik air base, which is not only the headquarters to the US 39th Air Base Wing but also vaults over 50 B61 nuclear bombs, and is critical to all US missions not only against ISIS but the entire middle east continues. Moments ago, Turkey's state-run news agency says seven prosecutors, charged with investigating a foiled coup, have entered the Incirlik Air Base.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

However this winds up, and no matter whoever ultimately devised this horrifically planned and wretchedly executed coup, this will not go well for the US government.

And the question which must be asked is, what, reasonably, and logically, does the US government do now?!?

Oh, forgive me, I forgot: the US government is not capable of either reason, or logic. So what we can expect will be something....horrific from it, in response to Edrogan's move of having prosecutors scour the facility.

Kashmir: Why are young people protesting?

Indian-administered Kashmir is witnessing some of its most violent protests.

More than 30 people have been killed and hundreds more injured in clashes with security forces in the past week following the killing of popular rebel leader Burhan Wani, 22.

After Wani's death, young people, who constitute the largest chunk of Kashmir's population, have taken to throwing stones in protest on the streets and using social media to tell their stories.

Demonstrations continue despite heavy a security presence and a shutdown of mobile Internet and phone services.

Al Jazeera went to the streets of Srinagar, the capital of Indian-administered Kashmir, to meet some of those involved.

Sameer Ahmad Bhat, 23, cricket player
We are forced to hurl stones at them. They incite us. I will continue to throw stones at them until they stop inflicting such atrocities on us.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That the Indian government continues to deny Kashmiris a referendum in which to decide if they want to be independent, stay as part of India, or join with Pakistan, is a complete moral outrage.

And the late President Kennedy said it best: "If peaceful revolution becomes impossible, violent revolution becomes inevitable."

Israel seeks to 'publicly shame' human rights groups

The Israeli government stands accused of waging a campaign of incitement against human rights groups as it tries to hamper efforts by the international community to monitor abuses of Palestinians under occupation.

A so-called Transparency Law, passed by the Israeli parliament last week, compels some two dozen Israeli rights organisations to declare publicly that they receive a majority of their funding from foreign governments.

Israel's Great Divide - Al Jazeera World
In future, they will have to divulge such funding - mostly from individual European states or the European Union - every time they appear in the media, issue publicity material, make statements online, and deal with official bodies. Failure to do so will incur a substantial fine.

The legislation's aim, peace activists argue, is to vilify these groups with the Israeli public, suggesting they are "foreign agents" and "traitors" seeking to subvert Israel's security and its national interests.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

People who tell the truth are not "an enemy of the Israeli people; people who desire to SUPPRESS the truth are the true enemies of the Israeli people!

How Extrajudicial Executions Became ‘War’ Policy in Washington

In the years in which the U.S. has up-armored globally, the country has also seen an arms race developing on the domestic front. As vets have returned from their Iraq and Afghan tours of duty, striking numbers of them have gone into police work at a time when American weaponry, vehicles, and military equipment – including, for instance, MRAPs (mine-resistant ambush protected vehicles) – have poured off America’s distant battlefields and, via the Pentagon, into police departments nationwide. And while the police were militarizing, gun companies have been marketing battlefield-style assault rifles to Americans by the millions, at the very moment when it has become ever more possible for citizens to carry weapons of every sort in a concealed or open fashion in public.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is most unfortunate, but here is the reality; in the 21st century, both at home and abroad, the United States of America has become the "Assassination Nation".

I have been very concerned that the extrajudicial assassinations, which have been on the forefront of standard US military tactics abroad, would finally come home to roost; and now, they have, in a circumstance that many Americans applauded, in the case of Micah Johnson. He was the "perfect candidate" for the use of such a weapon, to make it acceptable for use against Americans, with utterly no due pocess.

But we are on a very slippery slope here, folks; how long do you imagine it will take for people, simply protesting peacefully, in this country, to get "droned" out of existence, with a double tap, extrajudicial execution?!?

The short answer here is, not very.

HSBC REPORT SHOWS ERIC HOLDER PUSHED FOR ‘TOO BIG TO JAIL’ POLICY

A new report [PDF] from the House Financial Services Committee, which explores the Justice Department’s conduct in relation to the megabank HSBC, proves once-and-for-all what many had long suspected: former Attorney General and perpetual Wall Street lawyer Eric Holder was always committed to a “Too Big To Jail” policy for the large Wall Street banks. Holder had articulated much of his thinking on Too Big To Jail at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, when he said, “I am concerned that the size of some of these institutions becomes so large that it does become difficult to prosecute them … When we are hit with indications that if you do prosecute, if you do bring a criminal charge it will have a negative impact on the national economy, perhaps world economy, that is a function of the fact that some of these institutions have become too large. It has an inhibiting impact on our ability to bring resolutions that I think would be more appropriate.”

‘Yes’ to death penalty will mean ‘No’ to EU membership

‘Yes’ to death penalty will mean ‘No’ to EU membership, EU warns Turkey

Reinstating the death penalty in Turkey would end EU accession talks, a German government spokesman has stated. Meanwhile, EU Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini also warned that no country can become an EU member that has capital punishment.

“Introduction of death penalty would mean immediate suspension of accession talks,” German government spokesman Steffen Seibert said on Monday.

Turkey is part of the Council of Europe and is bound by the European Convention on Human Rights, the EU Foreign Policy Chief noted.

“No country can become an EU member state if it introduces the death penalty,” she said. “Turkey is an important part of the Council of Europe and is bound by the European Convention on Human Rights, which is very clear on the death penalty.”

Jail for Sharing Your Netflix Password? Understanding the Law That Could Make it a Federal Crime
An overly broad court ruling exposes Americans to grave consequences for something harmless almost everyone does.

It’s become so common that it’s almost a joke. One person has a Netflix account and three other people are using it. A recent court ruling found that because of a law called the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA), using someone else’s password could be considered a federal crime with an extremely harsh punishment. Someone who violates the CFAA can face decades in prison and large fines.

President Of The L.A. Police Protective League: Obama "Makes Me Sick"

Asked about the recent string of police shootings, the President Of The Los Angeles Police Protective League spoke out on a local TV news broadcast. Referring to President Obama's speech following the Baton Rouge shootings, Craig Lally said "it makes me sick!" He continued with a comical Freudian slip, "where's the leaders across this company, across the country?" He continues, "I wanna know what government is doing to protect cops! The fear is that we will become too militaristic. Well guess what? We need that stuff! The anchor then shows a video that the alleged Baton Rouge killer made prior to the shooting where he says protests won't help, and that "the alpha ones, we know what its gonna take" to stop police abuse. Interestingly, the black man also decries the fact, as he puts it, that when Europeans kill their oppressors, they're heroes, but when blacks do it, they're bad.

Judge: Instant Jail Term if you Criticise Migrants Again

A couple appeared before a court to answer to charges of incitement because the man had established a Facebook group that was “hostile to refugees”.
Peter M. founded a secret group called AFB (Anti Refugee Movement) about a year ago on Facebook. As a secret group, people who are not members of it would have been unable to see its content. He and his wife Melanie were administrators of the Facebook group, so both had to attend the court on charges of sedition.

The offending Facebook page’s founding statement was read out in the courtroom. Written by Peter M. it read: “The war and economic refugees are flooding our country. They bring terror, fear, sorrow. They rape our women and put our children at risk. Bring an end to it!”.

Turkey Coup Arrests Reach 6000 - Official

Turkish Justice Minister Bekir Bozdag has said as many as 6000 have been detained since an attempted coup on Friday evening.

On Saturday it was announced that more than 2800 soldiers had been arrested for allegedly being involved in the coup attempt, while over 2700 judges had been summarily dismissed.

Lawsuit against former Utah trooper Lisa Steed going to trial

A judge has refused to dismiss the lawsuit against a former Utah Highway Patrol trooper accused of illegally stopping motorists, sending the case to trial next month.

It is the first lawsuit to go to trial against Lisa Steed, who was once hailed by UHP for making more than 200 drunk driving arrests a year. Two judges later found to her to be an untruthful witness, and criminal defense attorneys accused her of arresting drivers who weren't intoxicated. UHP terminated her in 2013.

When we described the aftermath of Turkey's failed, and painfully disorganized military coup attempt, we asked rhetorically, "Who wins?" To which we answered: "Why Erdogan of course. As he said during a press conference upon his arrival back in Istanbul in the early Saturday morning hours, the coup is an opportunity to "to purge the military." Erdogan also vowed to exact "the highest price" from the perpetrators. Or, to summarize, the military said Erdogan's power consolidation justifies the attempted coup; Erdogan said the coup justifies further consolidation of power."

New York federal judge to DEA: If you want to use a stingray you’re going to need a warrant for that

Earlier this week, a New York federal judge became the nation’s first jurist to rule inadmissible evidence collected after Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) officials used a stingray, or cell site simulator, to locate a drug suspect’s phone, and by extension the man himself, without a warrant. This ruling—along with a landmark Second Circuit Court of Appeals opinion handed down this week holding that US warrants do not extend overseas—is a bright spot in what’s otherwise been a bleak series of court decisions on privacy in the digital age.

The bill passed with overwhelming bipartisan support in both the House and Senate, and goes into effect July 1, 2016. "I have long believed Israel is our most cherished ally and as such I am proud to sign House Enrolled Act 1378, which affirms Indiana's support for the state of Israel," said Governor Pence. "Israel's enemies are more emboldened than ever before and with the overwhelming bipartisan passage of this legislation, Indiana made clear that we will not do business with those who seek to inflict financial damage on the people of Israel. I thank Speaker Bosma for leading on this important issue and am proud to show Hoosiers are standing with Israel today."

America and Rome - a Tale of Two Republics

The United States of 2016 has a staggering amount of similarities with the ancient Roman Republic

The United States of America is going through a tumultuous period in its modern history. I would argue it’s a transitional period, and that the history of the great American Republic is analogous to another historical Republic: Ancient Rome.

While scholars talk about an “American Empire” and its inevitable decline, it seems that this comparison is not entirely grounded (yet). The best way to look at America in 2016 (in historic context) is to look at the era of the late Roman Republic, and that its decline and fall led to the rise of something far more nefarious.

Seattle police set up massage parlor in sex-sting operation, arrest 204 men

All told, members of the Seattle Police Department’s Vice & High Risk Victims Unit arrested 204 men during the 10-day operation that began July 5, netting more than $22,000 in cash — money the men handed over expecting to be sexually serviced by a handful of undercover female officers, or UCs.

“We never anticipated this volume,” Sgt. Tom Umporowicz said of the brisk business at the police-operated Euro Spa, the first sting operation of its kind in the city. He estimated court fines from the operation — $2,733 for a first-time offender, with repeat offenders paying more — will total at least $550,000.

Known as “Little America” in this mainly rural corner of Germany, the area now includes 57,000 US citizens clustered around Ramstein and a dozen smaller bases. The Defense Department calls it “the largest American community outside of the United States.” Ramstein serves as the biggest Air Force cargo port beyond US borders, providing “full spectrum airfield operations” along with “world-class airlift and expeditionary combat support.” The base also touts “superior” services and “exceptional quality of life.” To look at Ramstein and environs is to peer into a faraway mirror for the United States; what’s inside the frame is normality for endless war.

IN ATTEMPT TO DODGE SUIT, WHITE HOUSE ARGUES FUNDING WAR MAKES WAR LEGAL

A lawsuit filed earlier this year charging President Barack Obama with waging an illegal war against the Islamic State (or ISIS) was met on Tuesday with a motion from the Obama administration asking the court to dismiss it.

In its motion to dismiss (pdf), the administration argues that Congressional funding for the war amounts to Congressional approval for it.

The lawsuit (pdf) was filed in U.S. district court by Capt. Nathan Michael Smith, an intelligence official stationed in Kuwait, in May. Smith has been assigned to work for "Operation Inherent Resolve," the administration's name for the nebulous conflict against the terrorist group ISIS.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Congress, collectively, has behaved as though it is completely scrotumless on this issue of authorizing the use of force in this manner; and according to the Constitution, only Congress can declare war.

Funding for military activity is NOT, therefore, tantamount to Congressional approval, under the War Powers Resolution.

And let's be clear here; ISIS has been trained, funded, and allowed to fester, courtesy of US foreign policy, and is used terrify the American people of what will happen if the US government is not in control of the assets of foreign countries it wants to control, Like Iraq's oil, and Afghanistan's mineral resources, pipelines, and opium.

And if what you are seeing, in terms of US foreign policy, appears to be a foreign policy engineered to create perpetual war, you are absolutely correct.

Sorry, Flint, Congress Has Nothing For You

Congress is set to adjourn for the summer without approving any of the big aid initiatives that had been discussed for Flint, Michigan.

Flint’s water has been tainted with lead since the state of Michigan switched the city’s water source to the Flint River in 2014 without following proper treatment protocols. The new water corroded the city’s lead pipes, and last fall research showed lead levels spiking in Flint kids’ blood. Lead is a dangerous toxin that can cause all kinds of health problems, including miscarriages and irreversible brain damage in children.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Every single leader, from Flint's Mayor and City Council, to Michigan's Congressional Representatives, should be sued out of their positions, for having recklessly endangering the people of Flint, and do hard jail time for what they have allowed to happen to this city, and particularly to their children.

What Flint needs to do is appeal to the UN for funds to fix the problem, and the assignment of a water engineering specialist to make sure that the problem gets fixed correctly; that should embarrass the hell out of the state, the city fathers, and DC, which, on this issue, they richly deserve.

Clean, uncontaminated water should be a basic human right in this country, period, end of discussion.

Here are the 811 people (and counting) who have lost their lives in jail in the year after Sandra Bland died.

The Huffington Post gathered names, causes of death, dates of arrest and death, and other data for more than 800 people who died in jails and police lockups in the year following Sandra Bland’s death on July 13, 2015.

Because it is so difficult to obtain details of fatalities that occur in jails, many of the deaths in this database have not previously been reported. A number of states collect some form of death data from all their jails. In others, the reporting process is far from comprehensive. Some, like Texas, collect information from counties but not from municipalities. Others, like Louisiana, only track deaths of inmates in state custody — a tiny fraction of the jail population. (Jails are short-term holding facilities in which many inmates have not been convicted; our study does not include deaths in prison.)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These numbers are absolutely horrific; why, in the name of heaven, are we looking at the deaths of 811 in the last year (that we know about) in America's prison system?!?

This is a slamming indictment of everything that is wrong with the American penal system.

Even if you are not a Roger Moore fan, I urge you to see the documentary, "Who do we Invade Next?", because it has several examinations of European prison systems; how successful they are; and the conditions under which prisoners live.

In fact, in Sweden, they are closing many of their prisons, because, with the total focus being on rehabilitation, that approach leaves them with very little recidivism, unlike here in the US.

POLICE STEP UP ARRESTS FOR 'THREATENING' SOCIAL MEDIA POSTS IN THE WAKE OF THE DALLAS SHOOTING

In a move that's sure to only increase the nation's respect for law enforcement, police departments have been arresting people for "threatening" social media posts. This activity follows the tragedy in Dallas, where five police officers were killed by a man armed with a rifle. Naomi LaChance of The Intercept has more details.

Four men in Detroit were arrested over the past week for posts on social media that the police chief called threatening. One tweet that led to an arrest said that Micah Johnson, the man who shot police officers in Dallas last week, was a hero. None of the men have been named, nor have they been charged.

Four more arrests have occurred elsewhere:

Last weekend in Connecticut, police arrested Kurt Vanzuuk after a tip for posts on Facebook that identified Johnson as a hero and called for police to be killed. He was charged with inciting injury to persons or property.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to hope that people with a modicum of horse-sense will not do this; Facebook is constantly being surveilled by the police in order to bring charges against people who threaten in this manner.

And the problem is, such threats will not change abusive behavior on the part of police departments.

That will take a lot of hard, peaceful work, community and police involvement, and involvement on the part of cities' faith communities, to restore trust in this institution.

There have been some very good outcomes to intelligently structured community-based policing programs; but there has to be a real will, on the part of police departments, and the communities they serve, to make that happen.

CANADIAN TEACHER UNDER POLICE INVESTIGATION FOR SAYING PALESTINIANS HAD RIGHT TO RESIST OCCUPATION

A Toronto-area school board and Toronto city police are investigating an elementary school teacher after pro-Israel lobby groups complained about comments she made during a rally in solidarity with Palestinians.

The teacher, Nadia Shoufani, addressed a downtown Toronto rally on 2 July, marking al-Quds Day, an annual event held around the world to support Palestinian rights and to protest Israel’s occupation of the Palestinian territories.

“Silence in situations of oppression and injustices is a crime against humanity,” Shoufani said in her speech at the rally, in which she condemned the Israeli occupation and Israel’s policies of home demolitions, land confiscation and arrests of Palestinians.

Shoufani also quoted Palestinian writer Ghassan Kanafani, an important figure in the left-wing Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), who was assassinated by Israeli Mossad agents in a car bombing in Beirut in 1972.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, when it comes to support of Palestinians, Canadians have absolutely lost any freedom of speech they ever had when it comes to criticising the Israeli occupation.

And was this teacher doing this during school-time?!? No, not at all; she was on her own time, at this rally.

So now in Canada, a teacher cannot support the Palestinian cause without potentially getting "investigated" (and most probably sacked, and shunned, never permitted to teach again) if they are pro-Palestinian.

I am quite sure that Michael Mostyn's "Final Solution" to the "Palestinian Problem" would be for every Palestinian to kill every one of their children, then kill themselves.

For people like Mostyn, the "problem" is that Palestinians, who keenly remember their history, and exist in the world, are still breathing.

I find this attitude painfully ironic, because it is eerily similar to the thoughts of a European leader during World War II regarding certain minorities in his country, and the world, he did not particularly like.

Federal Reserve: creating debt-free money out of nothing for Americans is ‘next step.’ Data show $1,000,000 per US household benefits in ‘Emperor’s New Clothes’ obviousness if Americans simply look

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

hat tips: Prison Planet, Zero Hedge

Last month, Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen acknowledged Fed power to create debt-free money for direct payment of public goods and services. This would create money as a “positive number” rather than current practice of only and always creating what is used for money as debt, a negative number, with obvious implications of increasing aggregate debt that will never be repaid and will only increase as negative numbers pile on forever.

This week, President and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland confirmed this power to create debt-free money at a University of Sydney conference, going so far as to consider it a "next step."

In a world history of empire, the Emperor’s New Clothes facts for anyone who cares to raise their head and look is that this game-changing power transforms economics almost instantly, and with easily documented benefits of literally a million dollars per US household.

10 Things Many People Fear That Are Far Less Likely to Kill You Than American Police

624 people have been killed by cops so far in 2016, putting us on track for another year where more than 1,000 lives will be taken by those sworn to protect and serve.

In America, the odds of being killed by a cop are far greater than in other parts of the world. 14 people were killed by cops in Canada in 2014, and only one person was killed by a cop in the United Kingdom. No one was killed by cops in Germany in 2013-2014.

China, which is known for its heavy-handed state tactics, recorded 12 killings by law enforcement in 2014. This means that law enforcement in the US killed 92 times more people than a country with nearly 1.4 billion people.

France to Escalate Strikes in Syria and Iraq After Nice Attack

French Prime Minister Francois Hollande said Friday morning local time that he would "strengthen our actions" in Syria and Iraq and extend the state of emergency another three months, hours after a truck ran into a crowd of revelers and killed at least 80 people in Nice.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No matter what happens, the first thing politicians think is how to use it for their agenda.

1. The driver of the truck was from TUNISIA, so how does that connect with bombing Iraq and Syria?

2. Setting aside attempts to link this incident to Al Qaeda through a 2010 article in INSPIRE magazine (which is actually a western propaganda front), this appears to be a road-rage incident committed by a known criminal whose wife just left him. He was reported to be dealing with severe depression, which means he may have been on prescription anti-depressants, which have a long history of triggering extremely violent behavior.

3. The current State of Emergency did not prevent this tragedy from happening, so why extend it?

Dutchman sentenced to month in jail for insulting king

A Dutchman has been sentenced to 30 days in jail under a rarely enforced 19th century law for intentionally insulting King Willem-Alexander, according to a court ruling published on Thursday.

The 44-year-old man from the city of Kampen, whose name was not released, had posted a message on his Facebook page in April 2015 calling the king a murderer, rapist, “oppressor” and thief.

“Hereby the defendant damaged the dignity of the King,” wrote judge Sylvia Taalman in her decision. “This behaviour is not acceptable in our society.”

Many Dutch consider the law “Insulting the Majesty” to be an antiquated relic that should be scrapped, but it has never featured high on the country’s political agenda.

You might have found it funny that I endorsed Clinton for my personal safety. But it was only funny by coincidence. I did it for personal safety, and apparently it is working. Where I live, in California, it is not safe to be seen as supportive of anything Trump says or does. So I fixed that.

US public education: Bullshit to train stupefied work animals. Student leadership/ASB as entertainment committee with occasional gestures toward real-world problems but never recognizing bullshit ‘Big Lies’ of US rogue state (6 of 12)

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

lead: to go before or with to show the way.

Public education for leadership is mostly an entertainment committee to manage dances and athletic rallies. When they address public service, their work becomes tragic-comic by:

Misleading students to believe gestures such as annual food drives is the way to show leadership regarding poverty, or sending care packages is leadership to support our troops, and failing to recognize and act upon long-term solutions to problems they choose to address.
Failing to recognize, articulate, and act upon “Big Lies” of their US rogue state centered in illegal Wars of Aggression, bankster looting that directly attacks school funding, and constant lying through official and corporate media sources that include their own texts.
Let’s consider the above points in detail.

Paul recently stated that this had been foreseen, and there have been some indications that this may be in the works. The page has been removed for “Violating Community Standards” but no specific reason was given for exactly what standards were violated and why aside from a couple highly questionable issues with relatively benign posts directed at the administrators and moderators.

Des Moines Register: Is it GMO? "Smart labels" aren't enough

And we should have the right to know when a food product contains genetically engineered (GE) ingredients, especially as they carry greater and greater residues of this probable cancer causing chemical. Some states such as Vermont, Connecticut and Maine have voted to mandate this labeling. But Congress is trying to preempt these states from giving their citizens what they have asked for.

The latest ploy is so-called “smart labels.” This is the most recent attempt by big agribusiness, the giant food processors and members of Congress who submit to their lobbying pressure to keep customers in the dark about what’s in our food. Instead of a simple declaration in plain language on the product, a smart label will require scanning each item with a smart phone. Besides the unbelievable time and inconvenience involved, many Americans don’t have smart phones and can’t afford them. More than half of rural Americans don’t have smart phones, let alone the network coverage required to access the information.

Former DOJ Prosecutor Sues Obama, Black Lives Matter And Eric Holder For Inciting Race War

In a lawsuit filed in Texas, Larry Klayman - a former prosecutor for the U.S. Department of Justice and founder of the conservative watchdog organizations Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch - has accused President Obama, Black Lives Matter founders and former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder among others, of fueling a race war that led to the murder of police in Dallas last week. The lawsuit seeks “to redress the incitement, threats and killings provoked by the defendants."

In his lawsuit, Klayman also named Al Sharpton and Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan in the suit. The lawsuit, filed Saturday in Dallas, alleges that the defendants are guilty of civil rights violations, terrorist promotion of gang activity, and aiding and abetting murder.

From Cops to Clinton: Impunity Corrupts

Impunity is the essence of power. What, after all, is power? Is it simply the capacity to exert unjust force? The ability to impress one’s will upon the flesh or belongings of another? No, it’s more than that.

Most anyone can wield unjust force. Anyone could walk out onto the street right now and exert their will on somebody weaker: say, pushing over an old lady or stealing candy from a baby. And the toughest, or most heavily-armed guy in town can strong-arm just about any other single person.

But isolated incidents of aggression do not constitute power. The “reign” of the rogue rampager is generally short-lived. It only lasts until the community recognizes him as the menace to society that he is and neutralizes him.

After Dallas Shootings, Police Arrest People for Criticizing Cops on Facebook and Twitter

FOUR MEN IN DETROIT were arrested over the past week for posts on social media that the police chief called threatening. One tweet that led to an arrest said that Micah Johnson, the man who shot police officers in Dallas last week, was a hero. None of the men have been named, nor have they been charged.

“I know this is a new issue, but I want these people charged with crimes,” said Detroit Police Chief James Craig. “I’ve directed my officers to prepare warrants for these four individuals, and we’ll see which venue is the best to pursue charges,” he said.

Five police officers were killed in the Dallas shootings, constituting the highest number of police casualties in an attack since September 11. And as a result, law enforcement officials everywhere are suddenly much more sensitive to threats against their lives.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As heinous as these posts may have been, I think police departments need to be very careful, and have some very specific methodology in place, to determine what, in fact, is a clearly"terroristic threat" posted online.

We, as a country, can very probably get on a very slippery slope very quickly on First Amendment issues.

I am a Christian pacifist activist, who encourages this country to deal with geopolitical conflicts through good faith negotiations, and criticizes the actions of this country in a very logical way, when I feel that it is doing something which ultimately does not benefit We the People; because of this advocacy, will I be next to be arrested because I said something someone in the Federal Government does not like?!? (which, I am certain, happens most frequently).

We have to be extraordinary careful in how we characterise free speech.

Israeli Border Police Deliberately Provoking Palestinians in East Jerusalem

Related to a complaint filed with the Israeli Justice Ministry, reports out of the Israeli border police deployed in occupied East Jerusalem reveal that police in the department repeatedly, deliberately took actions designed to provoke a violent response from Palestinians to justify a further crackdown on them.

The attorney who filed the initial report noted he finally got 10 reports out of the area, and that they all noted police “initiated friction activity,” with police in the reports openly describing actions they took specifically to “create friction with the residents” of an Arab village in the area.

Israeli civil rights groups blasted the revelation, with one lawyer for such a group saying the actions totally contradict the role of police, and showed “a serious disregard for human life” in the occupied territories.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Israeli government and police ALWAYS have a "serious disregard for human life", when that life belongs to a Palestinian.

And this pattern of abuse continues, unabated, and conducted with absolute impunity.

Political Class Desperate to Keep Two-Party System in Place

Before you read through this article, ponder the words of our first president George Washington for just a minute. This is from his farewell presidential speech, Washington is quoted here where he was speaking on the Two Party system;

"The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more formal and permanent despotism. The disorders and miseries, which result, gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of Public Liberty

Mother of Idaho Girl Raped by Refugees: Authorities Withholding Police Report from Family

The mother of the five-year-old girl who endured a vicious sex assault at the hands of Iraqi and Sudanese refugees in June said she feels her family is being treated like “criminals” by local authorities and the media.
One June 2, she was outside with her daughter when she left for two or three minutes to take a quick bathroom break — and that’s all the time it took for the three perpetrators to grab the little girl, before dragging her into a nearby laundry room, stripping her naked, urinating on her clothes and in her mouth, and filming the attack until stopped by an elderly resident.

But no one will allow her to read the police report or her own daughter’s medical records, she said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the horrific price of unbridled, unchecked immigration.

THIS is the quality of immigrants the US government feels is perfectly acceptable to welcome into this country?!? Who feel that such an attack against a 5 year old little girl is "no big deal"?!?

IF more of these attacks continue, look for Americans to start to take the law into their own hands; if the US government is incapable of "protecting them" from such vicious acts of violence against children, people will learn how to protect themselves, and the people they love.

CULTURE OF SECRECY IN FEDERAL GOVERNMENT INCREASINGLY UNDERMINES FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT

President Barack Obama recently signed a law to improve the Freedom of Information Act, but the Senate Judiciary Committee heard Tuesday that the all-time low for unfulfilled requests occurred just last year.

The committee chaired by Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, convened this morning to look at FOIA 50 years after its adoption by President Lyndon Johnson.

"Over time, the government has found waits of undermining FOIA," Grassley said. "We still find a culture of secrecy, in both Democratic and Republican administrations. The Obama administration set a new record in 2015 for failing to fulfill FOIA requests. And several of his top officials used personal email accounts to avoid having their communications on the public record."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is in no small way ironic that the President who promised the people of this country "the most transparent administration in history" went in the completely opposite direction of fulfillment to that promise to become one of the most secretive administrations in this country's history.

And the contempt in which the highest office holders in the land hold the Constitution and Bill of Rights is absolutely breathtaking, as witnessed to by Loretta Lynch refusing to answer Congressman David Trott's questions yesterday, under oath, 74 times yesterday in committee about her meeting with Bill Clinton.

Decision to Blow up US Citizen With Robot Was Improvised in Less Than 20 Minutes

By Claire Bernish

A hotly-contested decision by law enforcement to use a drone robot to blow up a U.S. citizen, who allegedly carried out the murders of five police officers in Dallas, just got exponentially more controversial—because, according to Dallas Police Chief David Brown, the “whole idea was improvised in about 15 to 20 minutes.”

Already igniting fury around the country for neglecting any semblance of due process, the use of the “Remotec model F-5” to deliver a pound of C-4 explosive to decimate suspected shooter Micah Xavier Johnson as he targeted police in a sniper-style attack, has been revealed by the police chief as a hastily-plotted … whim...

Depends on whose ox is getting gored

I've been harassed online by a demented Canadian for over 20 years. He’s still at it, but at a much lower rate, fortunately, but years ago I printed out a couple of months worth of his threats and hatred — it was a stack of hundreds of pages — and plunked it down at my local police station, and told them about the problem. They had no idea what to do.

At the height of the Catholic annoyance with my desecration of a cracker, I was getting death threats every day. I reported them to the police a few times. They shrugged.

I’ve had people send me email with specific, credible threats: they’re going to come to town on such-and-such a day. They have this weapon. They have my home address. They are going to show up at my university office.

The response? Nothing. I’ve given them names and email addresses and IP numbers. No action of any kind is taken, not even sending a warning.

This Is Why Obama Is so Determined to Start a Race War

The last three bullet points above clearly spell out a deliberate and premeditated strategy to divide the nation using manufactured racism. That racially charged agenda has been implemented with a “nod and a wink” since the very inception of Obama’s first term. In light of the growing list of serious scandals and unrivaled law-breaking by this Administration, it is clear why there is such a relentless push for a “full scale race war”. Obama’s inner circle must feel that it has no choice but to distract the American people from the unrelenting corruption and ubiquitous malfeasance that must be kept hidden from the public.

When it’s not distracting the citizenry with transparent race-bating, the Obama Administration is diverting attention away from the very real class war that has been raging since the stock market crash of 2008.

If the request is denied, the petitioners must go before the state’s superior court. Requests can be denied to protect a person’s safety or reputation, or if the recording is part of an active investigation.
