Brexit: a Challenge to America’s Domination of Europe

The lead financial writer at the Telegraph, Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, wrote in 2000:

Declassified American government documents show that the US intelligence community ran a campaign in the Fifties and Sixties to build momentum for a united Europe.

***

The head of the Ford Foundation, ex-OSS officer Paul Hoffman, doubled as head of ACUE [below, we’ll explain who these players are] in the late Fifties. The State Department also played a role. A memo from the European section, dated June 11, 1965, advises the vice-president of the European Economic Community, Robert Marjolin, to pursue monetary union by stealth.

It recommends suppressing debate until the point at which “adoption of such proposals would become virtually inescapable”.

In other words, the U.S. State Department recommended ramming through the creation of the EU before Europeans knew what was happening.

Brexit Is The Only Way the Working Class Can Change Anything

Working-class people’s voices are rarely heard outside their communities, and almost never within the political or media sphere. However the EU referendum debate has opened up a Pandora’s box of working-class anger and frustration. It is clear that the Westminster politicos are quite unnerved by this. Even I am surprised by how the referendum has captured the attention and the imagination of the same people that only last year told me they had no interest in the general election “because ‘they’ are all the same”.

Some 13 months later they are asking me what I think and arguing with me about the finer points of Brexit. In working-class communities, the EU referendum has become a referendum on almost everything.

Authoritarian Control and Mass Murder In America The Hegelian Dialectic Way

This article will demonstrate how New World Order globalists and their neocon puppets in Washington have consistently employed this repeating cycle of the Hegelian Dialectic consisting of the problem (originally called thesis), reaction (anti-thesis) and solution (synthesis) during this century’s federal governmental domestic policies. Inasmuch as US Empire virtually controls all Western nations as well as nearly all Third World nations, this insidious undemocratic process is unfolding globally on the geopolitical chessboard with the ultimate objective of establishing one world government tyranny.

This endless do-loop application stateside will be analyzed to demonstrate how the feds have amplified and concocted a “homegrown” enemy of radicalized violent extremists to intentionally include millions of non-violent, law abiding US citizens as the identified problem.

NDAA 2017 Includes Draft for Women, Indefinite Detention of American Citizens

By Derrick Broze

The U.S. Congress has passed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) 2017 with provisions that will force women to sign up for potential military draft and continues the practice of indefinite detention.

On Tuesday, the U.S. Senate approved a $602 billion annual defense budget that President Obama has promised to veto because the bill does not allow for the closing of the military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Senate Bill 2943, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2017, passed with a vote of 85 Senators in favor and 13 against...

Wall Street Falls

Wall Street falls as Fed holds steady and Brexit vote looms

Wall Street fell for a fifth straight session on Wednesday after the Federal Reserve left interest rates unchanged and investors stewed over an impending vote in Britain on whether to leave the European Union.

Major U.S. stock indexes spent most of the day with gains but abruptly fell late in the session, bringing the S&P 500's loss in the past week to 2.2 percent, in large part because of fears that a fractured EU could critically damage an already feeble global economy.

It was the S&P 500's longest losing streak since the five-day decline that culminated in its 2016 low on Feb. 11.

The FBI's Facial Recognition Software Has Never Been Properly Tested For Accuracy

Since 2011 the FBI has used facial recognition software to identify people during criminal investigations. The agency combs through a database of over 411 million photos, including everything from mugshots to driver’s licenses. Today, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) released a report that’s critical of the technology.

The GAO is concerned about not only the privacy implications, but also the accuracy of the FBI’s facial recognition technology. The report found that the FBI has never tested the accuracy of searches that are asked to yield fewer than 50 photo matches.

Put more simply, if someone from the FBI has a photo of a suspect and runs it through facial recognition while requesting just 2 potential matches, they have no way of knowing if those matches are any more accurate than the next 48 in line. Put even more simply, a lot of innocent people could potentially be identified positively as suspects.

Gingrich: Let's Create New Version Of House Un-American Activities Committee

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich proposed the creation of a new version of the controversial House Un-American Activities Committee to root out American citizens who plan to commit terrorist attacks in the U.S.

“We originally created the House Un-American Activities Committee to go after Nazis. We passed several laws in 1938 and 1939 to go after Nazis and we made it illegal to help the Nazis. We're going to presently have to go take the similar steps here,” Gingrich said in a Monday appearance on “Fox and Friends.”

In Police State USA, Parents are Now Sending their Kids to Summer Camp — In Prison

By William N. Grigg

Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, a relentless self-promoter who christened himself “The World’s Toughest Sheriff,” has invited Phoenix-area parents to send their grade school and teenage kids to jail for the summer.

“Summer Stars” is a two-day program supposedly intended to teach impressionable youngsters about the rigors of life behind bars, thereby deterring them from bad behavior. The program will be held in two sessions – June 23-24, and July 21-22 – and will be open for students from ages 8 to 18.

Arpaio’s department says that the experience is “designed to show young people the realities of jail life and prevent them from getting involved in illegal activity,” reports KTVK News in Phoenix. Participants will wear prisoner attire, work as inmate laborers, eat jail food, sleep in tents or bunks, and be required to follow jail regulations. Arpaio inexplicably assures parents that the temporary inmates “will have some fun, too” ...

Enjoy camping? You may be considered a terrorist by the US government.

The excessive, overreaching, privacy-violating surveillance conducted on American citizens every day shows that if you like to go camping, you might be considered a terrorist. The financial institutions of America are monitoring every single purchase made and categorically analyzing it.

Per year on average 42 million Americans go camping. To put it into perspective, that means that 3 out of 25 people in America go camping. That is a lot of campers. More importantly, that is a lot of individuals who shop at camping good stores. According to FINCEN, Financial Crimes Enforcement Network; campers are a red flag.

2. The Second amendment is not about hunting and it's not about target shooting. It's about giving the government good reason to leave the citizen alone.

*****What I have been afraid to blog about: THE ESF AND ITS HISTORY (Part 1-5)*****

It is impossible to understand the world today without knowing what the Treasury's Exchange Stabilization Fund is and what it has been doing. Officially in charge of defending the dollar, the ESF is the government agency which controls the New York Fed, runs the CIA's black budget, and is the architect of the world's monetary system (IMF, World Bank, etc). ESF financing (through the OSS and then the CIA) built up the worldwide propaganda network which has so badly distorted history today (including erasing awareness of its existence from popular consciousness). It has been directly involved in virtually every major US fraud/scandal since its creation in 1934: the London gold pool, the Kennedy assassinations, Iran-Contra, CIA drug trafficking, HIV, and worse...

These five videos are the "answer" I have arrived at after three years of blogging on MarketSkeptics.com. They took me a month and a half to make (and months of research). You will not find the material covered anywhere else.

As It Shapes ISIS-Centric Narrative, Orlando Police Reject Freedom of Information Request for Audio of Nightclub Shooter’s 911 Call

Hours after Omar Mateen opened fire in the LGBTQ Pulse Nightclub in Orlando, the Orlando Police Department informed the media that Mateen had sworn allegiance to ISIS in a call to its 911 emergency line.

According to FBI officials, Mateen previously pledged simultaneous allegiance to Al Qaeda and Hezbollah, two militant groups fighting on opposite sides of the Syrian civil war, and whose members have battled ISIS at various intervals.

On June 13, AlterNet’s Grayzone Project submitted a request under Florida’s public records law for a written transcript and/or an audio recording of any and all phone calls that Mateen made to Orlando’s 911 emergency line on the date of the Pulse Nightclub mass killing.

Furious Tory MPs said his plans for a 'punishment Budget' would be rejected by MPs on both sides of the Commons and he was taking the public for fools.

Flashback - Price for rejecting refugees: €250,000 per head

The European Commission on Wednesday proposed a new system for enforcing the relocation of migrants around the EU, giving countries that refuse to accept refugees an expensive “pay-to-not-play” option.

The measure, which would set a price of €250,000 per migrant for countries that want to avoid EU-imposed quotas for the resettlement of asylum-seekers, is part of a raft of new proposals aimed at rebooting the EU’s beleaguered strategy for dealing with the migration crisis.

CHAOS ERUPTS IN PARIS AS RIOT POLICE UNLEASH ON 50,000-STRONG LABOR PROTEST

French police unleashed tear gas and water cannons on demonstrators Tuesday as tens of thousands packed the streets of Paris in an outpouring of opposition to the government's anti-labor agenda.

The CGT labor union, which helped organized the march, hoped Tuesday's mobilization would be the largest since protests launched over new labor standards, which allow employers to more easily fire workers and create precarious, lower paid positions in place of permanent contracts.

"I’ve been to all the demos since March because I want to live in dignity, not just survive," Aurelien Boukelmoune, a 26-year-old technician, told AFP in Paris. "I want the reforms to be withdrawn, pure and simple. Only then will it stop. For the government's sake, they should withdraw the law, otherwise we'll block the economy."

Did a delay in response give the gunman more time? Cops face questions over why it took three hours for SWAT teams to storm Orlando nightclub as police chief admits officers may have shot some of the VICTIMS

Orlando police are facing questions over why it took three hours for a SWAT team to storm the nightclub where ISIS fanatic Omar Mateen slaughtered 49 people.

As the largest mass shooting in modern U.S. history began to unfold, an off-duty police officer working at a gay nightclub exchanged gunfire with the suspect.

But authorities chose to hold off on letting the tactical units enter Pulse nightclub, where more than 100 people were shot.

Police Chief John Mina has also admitted that some of the victims may have been hit by officers' gun fire.

Stop the Monsanto Doctrine from Poisoning Democracy and Hawaii - Sign the petition

On June 15 a panel of federal judges from the Ninth Circuit Court will meet in Honolulu to hear oral arguments from four important cases that may result in the environmental equivalent of a Citizens United decision.

The appellate court will either uphold or overturn four recent decisions by the lower federal District Court in Hawaii that invalidated the power of county governments to enact laws that protect public health and the environment.

I support the democratic right, and responsibility, of these local governments to protect the people of Hawaii from the impact of hundreds of experimental agrochemical farms across the islands that currently spray huge quantities of hazardous pesticides on genetically modified seed crops.

In cases involving the islands of Kauai and Hawaii a federal judge struck down local government laws that would have required buffer zones to prevent pesticide spraying near schools, and open air genetic engineering experiments that were seen as threatening to local organic agriculture.

$25,000 REWARD FOR INFORMATION LEADING TO EXPOSURE OF FALSE FLAG AT ORLANDO

*hyperlinks live at source*

By guest author, Thomas Paine. Washington’s Blog has previously documented false flag attacks are a usual expression of government to manipulate policy (site search results on false flag).

The Huffington Post Bloggers Club is offering up to $25,000 for hard evidence that the June 12 Orlando massacre was staged (consider here, here).

The attack fits the same pattern observed dozens of times over the last several years; in particulars, the summary execution of the suspect and disbelief of those who knew him best, including his family.

Yet again, the timing of the attack combined with the demographic of the alleged victims and the demographic of the alleged gunman, dovetail too well with the domestic and geopolitical agendas in Washington. The Orlando shooting is simply perfect for at least six top priorities of the Obama regime:

push the Gay agenda,
repeal the Second Amendment,
justify Orwellian surveillance,

HILLARY’S STATE DEPT. BLOCKED INVESTIGATION INTO ORLANDO KILLER’S MOSQUE

Hillary Clinton’s State Dept. shut down an investigation into the mosque Orlando killer Omar Mir Siddique Mateen attended because it “unfairly singled out Muslims.”

The Fort Pierce Islamic Center, where Mateen worshipped several times a week, was under investigation by both the FBI and DHS as early as 2011 for ties to a worldwide Islamic movement known as Tablighi Jamaal which was linked to several terrorist organizations.

But the investigation was shut down under pressure from the Clinton-ran State Dept. and DHS’s Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Office out of fear of offending Muslims, according to recently retired DHS agent Philip Haney.

Saudi Arabia Has Funded 20% Of Hillary's Presidential Campaign, Saudi Crown Prince Claims

In what may be the pinnacle of hypocrisy, moments ago Hillary Clinton, while speaking live on national security and addressing the Orlando shooting took some time from her constant bashing of the Second Amendment and calling for a ban on assault rifles, to say some less than kind words about Saudi Arabia whom it accused of supporting radical organizations. This is what she said:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here you go, folks: as reported at mintpresswnews.com this morning:

Saudi Arabia has paid more than 20 percent of the cost of Hillary Clinton’s campaign for presidential elections, Saudi Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was quoted as saying Sunday in a news report by the Jordanian Petra News Agency. According to the Middle East Eye news website, the report was later deleted from the agency’s website. However, a snapshot of the original Arabic version was later republished by the Washington-based Institute for Gulf Affairs. “Saudi Arabia has always sponsored both Republican and Democratic Parties of America and… the kingdom also provides with full enthusiasm 20 percent of the cost of Hillary Clinton’s campaign in the U.S. presidential elections despite the fact that some influential forces within the country don’t have a positive look toward supporting the candidate because she is a woman,” the agency’s report quoted Prince Mohammed as saying. The comments came as the Saudi second-in-command traveled to Washington on an official visit to meet with U.S. officials to discuss ties between the two countries, the Saudi state news agency said Monday. It is illegal in the U.S. for presidential candidates to accept funding from foreign governments, but Saudi Arabia and Clinton are no strangers to exchanging favors. The Clinton Foundation, which is chaired by both Hillary and her husband Bill Clinton, disclosed in 2008 that it had accepted up to US$25 million from the Saudi Kingdom in the same year. Other foreign governments who have donated money to the Clintons include Norway, Kuwait, Qatar, Brunei, Oman, Italy and Jamaica, which together donated around US$20 million. Middle East Eye said it attempted to contact the Saudis and Hillary Clinton but failed to receive a response from either party.

If, in fact, this report is true, Clinton has just committed election fraud by illegally taking money from a foreign government to get her elected, and should be immediately be investigated for this.

Of course, with Loretta (hang the climate skeptics) Lynch as the US's AG, this will only happen when pigs fly.

And BTW, Saudi Arabia is a country which still allows female genital mutilation; and Hillary is accepting money from a country (among several) which still allows this barbaric practice?!?

NSA learning how to snoop on pacemakers

The NSA is seeking new ways to satisfy its hunger for raw data by exploiting the so-called internet of things, an emerging network connecting objects such as vehicles, home appliances and biomedical devices.
“We’re looking at it sort of theoretically from a research point of view right now,” the spy agency’s Deputy Director Richard Ledgett told a conference on military technology at Washington’s Newseum on Friday.

The official said biomedical data for the NSA “maybe a niche kind of thing … a tool in the toolbox," according to the Intercept.

“As my job is to penetrate other people’s networks, complexity is my friend,” he said. “The first time you update the software, you introduce vulnerabilities, or variables rather. It’s a good place to be in a penetration point of view.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Such monitoring of pacemakers could also, potentially, lead to hacking attacks on the pacemakers of people the US government deems "politically undesirable" creating heart attacks in its victims, and making it appear that it was simply a case of "device malfunction."

"Subtle assassinations"; a wave of the future for US intelligence agencies?!? I frankly wouldn't bet against it.

There are numerous security flaws in many such devices, but right now, software forensic analysis can only determined if a device has been altered after it is far too late to save the person whose device was hacked.

Thousands protest against drones at U.S. Air Force base in Germany

Several thousand demonstrators formed a human chain along the perimeter of a U.S. Air Force Base in southwest Germany on Saturday in protest against drone operations by the United States.

The demonstration was organized by the alliance "Stop Ramstein - No Drone War", which says the Ramstein base transmits information between operators in the United States and unmanned drone aircraft in places such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen and Syria.

Police estimated 3-4,000 people had formed the chain close to the base, which serves as the headquarters for the U.S. Air Forces in Europe. Organizers spoke of 5-7,000 people. No comment was available on Saturday from officials at Ramstein.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Bless you, peaceful German protesters!! Way to go.

And I have to wonder; how deeply has the use of drone warfare so become the "new normal" for Americans over the past 15 years, that they are not protesting this insanity?!?

The concept of due process was firmly embedded in American jurisprudence, before the Bush/Bama era. But now, people in foreign countries (and probably, soon, right here at home)can be extrajudicially assassinated, just because the President believes he is "legally justified" in doing so.

President Obama, an alleged "expert" (and lecturer) on Constitutional Law, appears to believe that he can throw due process out the window in these cases, and that is more than a little scary as a precedent.

The realities here are that the US government doesn't know, really, who these drone strikes are hitting, which creates more collateral damage, which creates more jihadists.

It is a marvelous mechanism for creating endless wars.

And how far away are we from extrajudicial assassinations here at home?!? My friends, they have already happened, and are an historical realty for this country; a reality which, I am afraid, may well get worse before it gets better.

World View: In a Reversal, Obama Allows U.S. Troops in Afghanistan in Combat Roles

In a significant reversal of policy, President Barack Obama’s administration will now all American soldiers to fight alongside Afghan troops in combat situations, and will allow close air support in combat. Secretary of Defense Ash Carter confirmed the change in policy, and said,

This is using the forces we have… in a better way, basically, as we go through this fighting season, rather than being simply reactive. This makes good sense. It’s a good use of the combat power that we have there.

By “fighting season,” Carter is referring to the fact that the Taliban are most active during the summer months.

The change in policy comes one day after John Sopko, appointed by Obama as Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR), said that the situation in Afghanistan is continuing to deteriorate:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, President Obama has just made one thing painfully clear: we are never leaving Afghanistan!!

Too many corporations, particularly those which are a part of the military industrial complex are making a killing (frequently, in the literal sense) from this war; the cheap heroin is flowing from Afghanistan poppies, to be used for off the shelf US covert operations; and neither the US military or government can ever admit it has made an horrific mistake with the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan.

THE SURVEILLANCE STATE DIDN’T STOP THE ORLANDO ATTACK — NOR WILL THE RESULTANT POLICE STATE

Mass surveillance has, for the larger segment of the U.S. populace, become an integral facet in the illusory feeling of security. But does it serve any purpose at all — other than providing the Surveillance State a handy excuse for keeping tabs on anyone it chooses, while simultaneously quashing every one of our paltry remaining legal rights?

While it may be comforting to feel the overarching blanket of indiscriminate surveillance keeps us all safe from harm, the deaths of at least 50 people in an Orlando nightclub prove indisputably the contrary.

In fact, the National Security Agency and Federal Bureau of Investigation — and, indeed, every agency — attempting to employ the weary excuse they spy on you to keep you safe can be disproven in the events of the early morning hours this past Sunday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All of the surveillance the US government has done, all the alleged "intelligence" the US government has allegedly gathered, failed utterly to prevent this horrific attack on this club in Orlando.

So, is more surveillance, and the continuing devolution into a total, fascistic police state the answer for this country, in terms of allegedly "protecting" its citizens?!?

In two simple words, "HELL, no!!"

Mike and I did a little island hopping to visit a friend recently.

And both times, coming and going, I was patted down.

And I so wanted to ask the TSA people who did this, but understood I couldn't, because they would most probably, punitively, have caused me to miss my flight, "Do you have any understanding of how utterly stupid this is?!? I am a Christian pacifist activist, who directs a church choir at a local Methodist faith community. What do you think I'm going to do, have my choir sing "notes of mass destruction"?!? And BTW, every time I have to run the gauntlet through TSA to catch a flight, I am furious that I am being treated as though this country were under Code Napoleon law, where one is considered guilty until proven innocent. American jurisprudence takes the absolutely the opposite stand. When, please, did the law of the land in the USA stop being the law of the land?!?"

Of course, that dialogue was completely internal, and I just smiled at the logic-challenged individuals who believed, for even one second, that I could possibly be a "baddie".

But the surveillance, pat-downs, and general demeanings of average American citizens by police-state representatives doesn't translate, ever, into any more security: the incident in Orlando just proved that.

These measures are simply meant to intimidate citizens into swallowing whatever the US government dictates, period, end of discussion, without any meaningful dialogue, or critical thinking.

Welcome to Amerika, my friends: the land of the cowed, and the home of the surveilled!!

NULAND TO CONGRESS: WE SPEND $100 MIL A YEAR TRYING TO DESTABILIZE RUSSIA

On Tuesday [June 7, 2016], the US Senate Committee on Foreign Relations scheduled a two-hour anti-Russian hate-fest. Lies, misinformation and jaw-dropping stupidity were on full display. The star witness of course, was Tricky Vicky Nuland.

These congressional committee meetings crack me up. In theory, they’re supposed to be interviewing witnesses to collect information. In reality it’s a platform for congressmen to make speeches satisfying the special interests who own them and then they read questions from prepared notes provided to them by “experts” or lobbyists (or maybe the witnesses themselves). Then they get the answers they want to hear from the witnesses. It is 100% theater.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Are you flipping kidding me?!?

While this country's infrastructure crumbles; while kids are forced to drink water that rots their brains with lead, and gives them a huge number of other health problems; while homeless Vets sleep in their cars, not getting the health care they so desperately need; and GMO food makes people mortally ill, what "brainacs" in Congress believe that it is perfectly fine for this country to be spending $100 million dollars annually to "destabilize" Russia?!?

Russia is not the problem here; the problem is the absolutely pathological inability of ANYONE in the US government being able to think a scenario through to its logical conclusion, coupled with alleged Congressional Representatives "being in bed" with the corporations which fund them, covertly or overtly.

Radioactive Ranchers? Elements Found Downwind of Intensive Fracking

The companies were drilling lateral wells, which turn 90 degrees and travel for kilometres underground, extending under people's barns and homes. (Tight oil costs more to extract and produces lower quantities of oil.)

As industry fracked these deep, far-reaching wells with millions of gallons of water, toxic chemicals, and sand under high pressure and then burned off unwanted raw gas, the Hawkwoods and many of their neighbours began complaining about noxious emissions and earth tremors.

Some officials with the Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) initially responded to general complaints in the region by saying fracking was proven and safe and that it couldn't cause earthquakes -- claims now proven false by a variety of scientific studies.

5 REASONS TO QUESTION THE OFFICIAL STORY OF THE ORLANDO SHOOTING

FBI Foreknowledge, ISIS Sympathies, Taliban Ties

What may at first sound like an instance of senseless violence, brings with it a number of other questions. For instance, the FBI was already well aware of Mateen and his connections to radical jihad and terrorism. According to CNN’s article, “50 Killed in Florida Nightclub, Shooter Pledged ISIS Allegiance,” two officials tell CNN that the FBI had investigated Mateen at some point for possibly having ties to or sympathizing with Islamic extremism. A law enforcement official said there were two cases opened involving Mateen but the probes didn’t result in enough evidence to charge him with anything.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To the LGBT community in Orlando and beyond: you are all absolutely in my prayers, and this massacre should never have been allowed to happen, period, end of discussion.

And the FBI?!? It should now be known as the Federal Bureau of Idiocy; the Federal Bureau of Intimidation; the Federal Bureau of Incompetency; or the Federal Bureau of Impotence.

Take your pick.

Functioning intelligence agencies, which actually CAN protect the people of their respective countries around the world, are collectively shaking their heads on this.

Please note that this agency, and this entire government, under President Obama's watch, couldn't (or wouldn't) protect you from this act of terror, even though the FBI had interviewed this guy several times.

And remember; so-called "gun free zones" create soft targets for bad guys to hit.

Just look at Mayor Rahm Emanuel's Chicago, also an allegedly "gun-free zone". As reported this morning by chicago.cbslocal.com this morning on last weekend's gun violence:

Seven people were killed and at least 35 others — including a 5-year-old girl — were wounded in shootings across Chicago between Friday night and Monday morning.

So, after the horrific numbness starts to lift; after the last memorial services are done to commemorate the fallen; after the last candles go out; and and after the last flowers are placed in loving memory of those whose lives got snuffed out, you, and we, need to delve deep into some kick-ass logic....

And there are a couple of terribly uncomfortable questions you have to ask yourself, when something like this happens in this country and beyond: who benefits from this tragedy, and how are they going to spin this?!?!?

Of course, there will be a demand for more stringent gun control in this country, but that never, ever affects the bad people, who are going to use guns to get what they want anyway.

The US/NATO occupation of Afghanistan has gone from bad to worse; will this be used as the "justification" for yet more US blood and money spent in this hubristic war of conquest, which has gone so horribly badly?!?

Right now, I would not bet against this; but only time will tell.

But in the meanwhile, to the members of the LGBT community in Orlando and beyond: I would strongly caution you to choose not to continue to be potential victims.

The 2nd Amendment to the Constitution was written into the Bill of Rights by people who understood the evil and misery which could be caused by governmental overreach, and the need for a population to be able to protect itself against that, or the evil madness of someone coming to hurt you, or people you care about, as happened in in Orlando.

Buy a licensed firearm, and get trained in how to use it effectively and responsibly.

Because let's be clear here; one person, with a concealed carry permit, could have prevented the scope of damage which happened here in a heartbeat; far fewer would have been killed, or injured.

Through this incident, United States Government has demonstrated, beyond a reasonable doubt, that it is completely incapable of protecting you.

Orlando Shootings: Terrorism or False Flag?

It’s too soon to know whether Sunday’s Orlando incident was terrorism or false flag deception.

Yet it has distinct earmarks of the latter, likely the latest example of domestic state terror, another fear-mongering pretext for out-of-control militarism, endless wars of choice, and domestic repression, America more a police state than free society on a slippery slope toward full-blown tyranny.

What’s The Difference Between Trump’s Wall And The DNC’s Wall Around Its Philadelphia Convention?

The DNC is permitting a WALL to be erected around the Wells Fargo Center—DNC convention site in Philadelphia—to KEEP OUT protestors! Is this a free USA, or not? Or, will that venue become FEMA camp Democratic Convention 2016 with all the heavily-armed security guards?

Furthermore, the convention premises will be staffed, patrolled, and heavily guarded by GUN-CARRYING-GUARDS! How very interesting! Especially since Hillary wants to obliterate—like she did her emails—the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution—the right to bear arms. If Democrat Party ‘high hats’ hate guns so much when it comes to ordinary citizens, they sure love them when it comes to protecting themselves. What a dichotomy!

Bureaucratic Insanity: Free to be Slaves

Schools in America today are less concerned about the overall welfare of students than they are with making sure that they obey all the rules, no matter how pointless, and produce good test scores. The emphasis on mindless obedience and rote learning prepares them for dehumanizing office work, where employers don’t even try to pretend that they care about the welfare of their workers. Instead, they shame them for taking vacation time and force them to work overtime for free. Employers and school administrators only care about what they can produce: children are treated no differently from widgets, and employees are treated no differently from robots.

'Leave' Takes Shocking 19-Point Lead In Brexit Poll - "If It Happens, Gold Will Be The World's Strongest Currency"

The headlines go from bad to worse for the UK and EU establishment as yet another new poll this weekend, by Opinium, shows "Brexit" leading by a remarkable 19 points (52% chose to leave the EU against 33% choosing to keep the status quo). This result comes after 2 polls Friday night showing a 10-point lead for "leave" which sparked anxiety across markets. This surge in "leave" probability comes despite an additional 1.5 million voters having registered this week (which many expected to increase "remain" support). Further anger towards EU was exposed when former cabinet minister Iain Duncan Smith warned that seven new prisons will need to be built in the UK by 2030 to cope with the rising number of migrant criminals (presumedly due to 'staying' in the EU).

The Declaration of Independence: Still relevent today?

Lately, the purveyors of more war and dictatorship have taken to diismissing protests that various government actions violate the Constitution and the Bill of Rights by simply declaring those documents as irrelevent, being that they are almost 250 years old.

But the fact is that the Constituion does change over time, through the approved process of Amendment, and today's Constitution bears little resemblance to the one signed on Congress all those years ago. Like the White House itself, little of the original actually remains. But the founding principle remains the same. For government to be legitimate and legal, it must constrain itself within the limits imposed by that Constitution.

As for the Declaration, it was never the law of the land, but a symbolic statement. Yet not only is it still relevant, it is even more relevant today that at any time I have been alive.

Texas Lieutenant Governor slammed for tweet sent after Florida shooting: ‘You are a disgrace’

The office of Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick, a Republican and evangelical Christian, on Sunday deleted a tweet many saw as offensive and insensitive that was sent out shortly after the deadly attack on a gay nightclub in Florida.

“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows,” read the Bible verse Patrick sent out on his official Twitter account a few hours after the worst mass shooting in U.S. history that left at least 50 dead.

His office was not immediately available for comment but has told local media, including the Dallas Morning News, that the tweet had been scheduled for release well before the shooting. The office, which regularly sends out a Bible verse on Sundays, has since deleted it and replaced with another passage, they said.

But the deleted tweet from a politician who has condemned same-sex marriage and fought against LGBT rights still raised the ire of those who accused Patrick of blaming the victims.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, Lieutenant Governor Patrick is suffering from " EXTREME selective memory disorder (ESMD) when it comes to Jesus' exhortations to "Love ye one another" (and remember, Jesus did NOT say, "EXCEPT...if they are LGBT), and "Judge not lest ye be judged."

And for this guy to be blaming the victims of this attack?!?

Andrew Cuomo and Other Democrats Launch Severe Attack on Free Speech to Protect Israel

ONE OF THE greatest free speech threats in the West is the growing, multi-nation campaign literally to outlaw advocacy of boycotting Israel. People get arrested in Paris — the site of the 2015 “free speech” (for Muslim critics) rally — for wearing pro-boycott T-shirts. Pro-boycott students on U.S. campuses — where the 1980s boycott of apartheid South Africa flourished — are routinely sanctioned for violating anti-discrimination policies. Canadian officials have threatened to criminally prosecute boycott advocates. British government bodies have legally barred certain types of boycott advocacy. Israel itself has outright criminalized advocacy of such boycotts. Notably, all of this has been undertaken with barely a peep from those who styled themselves free speech crusaders when it came time to defend anti-Muslim cartoons.

.01%’s Bozo ‘democracy’: War Criminal lying Clinton v. Racist WrestleMania Trump! America’s choice: Staged fear-show for slaves OR arrests to end Wars of Aggression, bankster economics, corporate media lies, and implement OBVIOUS solutions

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

The US 2016 presidential stage-show is not an election because 25%+ of the “votes” are from electronic “voting” machines that do not provide countable receipts. Obviously: the definition of election includes verifiable vote counting, and without that component we have to call the American system of selecting representatives something other than democracy with elections. Several videos are in this article, with Princeton and Stanford as leading universities pointing out that election fraud is the obvious motivation to produce “counting” machines that provide zero evidence of what they claim to count. Please consider this 2008 2-minute parody from The Onion as the closest documentation we have to the facts:

But that’s the fourth most important fact of this non-election stage-show, as the third most critical element is the non-choice of Americans between Clinton, a lying War Criminal, and Trump, a cartoonish racist buffoon.

Labour “anti-Semitism” witch hunt claims new victims

The “anti-Semitism” witch hunt in the UK Labour Party against leftist supporters of Palestinian rights is continuing to claim new victims.

The latest is Marlene Ellis, a Black activist within the Momentum grouping, who was suspended on Friday. Ellis told The Electronic Intifada her suspension was an attack on free speech.

But campaigners have scored the first win in pushing back.

A Jewish activist expelled from the Labour Party for referring to the transatlantic slave trade as an “African holocaust” was cleared of anti-Semitism and readmitted to the party at the end of May.

Jackie Walker told The Electronic Intifada on Monday she had yet to receive an explanation for her suspension.

Of all that separates Hillary Clinton’s and Bernie Sanders’s bases, the Israel issue is now the clearest, and BDS could be the embattled ground. The Green Party nominee’s endorsement of BDS surely resonates for many of Bernie Sanders youthful supporters.

Bilderberg Agenda 2016 | The World's Elite are Scared to Death of the "Precariat" – the 'Awakening Ones'

If there's one thing to take away from this years Bilderberg meeting it is that the elite is scared to death of the precariat.

That's a term coined by the British economist Guy Standing, referring to a class of people who feel less confident about society in general, either because of underemployment, poor economic conditions, political disenfranchisement, or to be perfectly frank, because they realize modern civilization is a fraud.

In other words, the precariat are people who are beaten down by the system and who have woken up to some degree as a result. If you are reading these words, you are most likely considered part of the precariat, and the elite is afraid of this group of people arguably more than anything else.

In other instances, documents that were already declassified – some of them decades ago – have been re-sealed and are now unavailable.

NATO Will Suppress Protests In Poland

On May 18th, 2016, the well-known Polish politician Mateusz Piskorski was arrested on charg-es of spying for “third countries.” Shortly before, he wrote an article that predicted the beginning of mass political repressions against NATO opponents in Poland and Europe as a whole. He was right. Katehon presents the following exclusive translation of his article:

Predictions concerning the upcoming NATO summit in July in Warsaw are beginning to clearly indicate that today the alliance’s goal is first and foremost preventing the emergence of social movements demanding the liberation of Europe from underneath the tutelage of the United States. As can be seen, the Financial Times’ inadvertent uttering of the words of one of the Polish Army’s senior commanders show just what decisions can be expected this summer. These are decisions which completely undermine not only the sovereignty of Warsaw in the field of foreign policy, but also clearly speak to the fact that from this moment on NATO is supposed to be a police force ready to participate in the pacification of eventual social protests or intervene in the affairs of domestic Polish politics.

Beware the Useful Idiots

How to create a social state by Saul Alinsky:

There are eight levels of control that must be obtained before you are able to create a social state. The first is the most important.

1) Healthcare – Control healthcare and you control the people.

2) Poverty – Increase the Poverty level as high as possible; poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.

3) Debt – Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.

4) Gun Control– Remove the ability to defend themselves from the government. That way you are able to create a police state.

5) Welfare – Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income).

6) Education – Take control of what people read and listen to – take control of what children learn in school.

7) Religion – Remove the belief in the God from the government and schools.

NEW NATION, LONG WAR

Rebel forces in southern Sudan began using child soldiers long before seceding from Sudan in 2011. The United States, on the other hand, passed a law in 2008 that banned providing military assistance to nations that use child soldiers. The law was called the Child Soldiers Prevention Act, or CSPA, but after South Sudan’s independence, the White House issued annual waivers that kept aid flowing to the world’s newest nation despite its use of child soldiers. President Obama stated in 2012 that the waiver that year was in “the national interest of the United States.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Someone in the press needs to have the "male attributes" to challenge her on this issue of those waivers, allowing South Sudan to conscript child soldiers.

Please: don't listen to what Clinton says in her campaign speeches; after all, it was President Obama in 2008, who said, publicly, that she would say ANYTHING in order to get elected.

Rather, look at the history of her actions at the State Department and as New York State Senator: she supported the disastrous war in Iraq; the assassination of Qaddafi in Libya; and created an absolute fiasco of the alleged "Reset" with Russia.

IS this REALLY the person we want running our country?!?

Fearful of EU Disintegration and Mired in Crisis, France Wants Britain Punished for Brexit Revolt

As support for a British exit from the EU strengthens, at least according to the latest polls that give some people whiplash, policy makers on both sides of the English Channel are finally beginning to think about the days, weeks and months after June 23. Some countries, such as Germany, seem more inclined to favor a soft, pragmatic approach in the event of a Brexit, while others, led by the government of France, are calling for a more punitive response.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Oh yes, I can already see the French trying to invade England!

‘Sufficient proof Clinton pushing false narrative on Benghazi’ – attack survivor

The proof Hillary Clinton is pushing a “false narrative” trying to cover things up in Benghazi and skirt her responsibility is “out there”, attack survivor Kris Paronto told RT.

House passes Puerto Rico rescue bill

On Thursday evening, the U.S. House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed a bill to help the island avoid economic collapse. Puerto Rico is $70 billion in debt and stuck in a recession. The situation is so dire that Puerto Ricans are literally fleeing the island at a rate not seen since the 1950s "West Side Story" era.

The bill is being hailed as a bipartisan compromise. President Obama and Hillary Clinton both support it, as does Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

They, of course, are not paying for it; you are!

MOSCOW WARNS OF PROMPT RESPONSE AFTER US SENDS DESTROYER TO BLACK SEA

Having sent not one but two aircraft carriers into the Mediterranean in what, as we reported yesterday, was meant to be a "clear message to Russia", the US decided to further antagonize Russia when on Monday it sent the US destroyer Porter in the Black Sea "for a series of drills with allies and forces of partner nations in what the United States called a routine deployment", the US Navy announced. To be sure, the US Navy was quite clear about its intentions with these deployments: “It provides some needed presence in the Med to check…the Russians,” the official said. “The unpredictability of what we did with Truman kind of makes them think twice.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question one has to ask is, why is the US government confronting Russia militarily in an election year?!?

The answers are complex, but the following scenarios are hardly improbable.

First, the US economy is in a tailspin, except for the fortunes of the 1 percenters.

Under President Obama's watch, decently paying jobs, which used to be the bedrock of a comfortable, middle-class existence, continue to be offshored and outsourced, leaving many Americans with no choice but to be working several minimum wage jobs, if they can get them, and running further and further into personal debt.

To say that there is a lot of anger and resentment on this issue, in the heartland, is like saying that the Titanic hit a little bit of ice.

So if in fact there is a war against Russia and/or China before the election, it will have been very cynically created, in order to attempt to misdirect Americans' anger at the horrific economic conditions in which so many find themselves toward those two nations.

Secondly, internal polling by the White House may indicate that Trump could well pull off a miracle, and soundly win the 2016 election, even with all of the vote fraud and vote suppression the Democrats can muster.

Should this happen, the Establishment will want to pile on as much pain and misery on the Trump Administration as humanly possible, by initiating a war with which Trump must contend, even before he has taken the oath of office, and perhaps deliberately crashing the economy just as hard as they can before he becomes President.

Thirdly, should Clinton win/steal the election, she very much wants to be perceived as a "war president"; the smell of blood (other people's, of course) is the ultimate aphrodisiac of power for her.

Expect her to recklessly declare war against Russia and China, as her first act as President, rather than looking for any possible way of diffusing geopolitical tensions with both countries.

Look for her to reinstitute the draft; and if there is any major public protest against such wars, look for her to suspend the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and declare martial law.

After all, her good friends on Wall Street, and in the banking industry, will be making billions from such activities; and for her, money isn't everything: it is the only thing.

I would, frankly, hate to be the military strategists and weapons specialists who, ultimately, will have to tell her that the US military doesn't have the weaponry, the troop strength, the money, or the manufacturing to insure a positive outcome to a conventional war against Russia and/or China.

Clinton should be getting educated on these issues now, but in her hubris, believes she will have "plenty of time" to be schooled on these once she has taken the Oath of Office; she absolutely does not have the luxury of time at all, if she is looking at winning a war against Russia and/or China.

NEW YORK TIMES SAYS FAIR USE OF 300 WORDS WILL RUN YOU ABOUT $1800

Fair use is apparently the last refuge of a scofflaw. Following on the heels of a Sony rep's assertion that people could avail themselves of fair use for the right price, here comes the New York Times implying fair use not only does not exist, but that it runs more than $6/word.

Obtaining formal permission to use three quotations from New York Times articles in a book ultimately cost two professors $1,884. They’re outraged, and have taken to Kickstarter — in part to recoup the charges, but primarily, they say, to “protest the Times’ and publishers’ lack of respect for Fair Use.”
These professors used quotes from other sources in their book about press coverage of health issues, but only the Gray Lady stood there with her hand out, expecting nearly $2,000 in exchange for three quotes totaling less than 300 words.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The New York Times has gone to an absolutely new moral and legal low in this case, and you would almost think that their Governance Board would be thoroughly embarrassed for having done this.

Of course, to get to that level of power by consistently supporting the US Government's narrative, no matter how false or misleading, or ultimately hurtful to the American it may be, one has to have had ones's conscience surgically removed.

I would strongly suggest that people stop reading the NYT all together, after letting their advertisers know that you have stopped reading it, therefore their ads, either in print or on-line, are completely futile.

Such a large-scale action would potentially either bankrupt the paper, or cause a change in its corporate policy; I am not sure which, but the result of such a protest will most likely have some effect.

EMAILS SHOW MAJOR CLINTON DONOR PUT ON INTELLIGENCE BOARD DESPITE LACK OF EXPERIENCE

When presumptive Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, a committee dealing with nuclear arms issues was staffed by many experts in the field, and one securities trader from Chicago with no known intelligence background. State Department emails, released as a result of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit brought by Citizens United, revealed some details behind how this may have happened, ABC News reported.

Rajiv K. Fernando had given substantial contributions and raised money for Clinton’s 2008 Presidential campaign. He also gave up to $250,000 to the Clinton Foundation before his appointment to the State Department board. In 2011, ABC News asked the Department how Fernando was selected for the board, and some of the released emails showed how Department officials reacted to the question.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Judging from her behaviour as Secretary of State, Clinton's "pay to play" cronyism will not end if she steals/wins the election in November.

Expect horrifically unqualified candidates to be vetted as "advisors" in various areas of her administration, just because they have been huge donors to the Clinton Foundation, and the intelligent, experienced, knowledgeable people to get permanently frozen out, in favor of her political contributors.

Victim in accidental police shooting dies

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has confirmed the homeowner who was accidentally shot by a Henry County Police Department officer Wednesday night reportedly died in the hospital.

According to Scott Dutton, of GBI public affairs, William Powell, 63, died in the hospital Thursday from a gunshot wound he sustained in the neck.

Though, media reports were circulating Thursday evening of Powell’s death, the GBI released the information after all family members were notified Friday morning.

HCPD responded just before midnight to the 600 block of Swan Lake Road after three officers were dispatched to the location based on instructions relayed by a 911 operator.

“Preliminary review of the 911 call indicates that the officers were at the wrong location,” the Georgia Bureau of Investigation stated.

The FBI is on the cusp of obtaining three extremely dangerous new powers

In recent months, the FBI has taken to the press and to congress to complain about how the increasingly widespread adoption of end-to-end encryption in commercial technologies like the iPhone and Whatsapp is resulting in an intelligence blackout, a process the feds call “going dark.” But three items in the news over the past few weeks make clear that the debate about encryption is only one aspect of a larger FBI campaign to expand its access to and exclusive control over huge quantities of extremely sensitive information about us. Despite FBI Director James Comey’s claims, the problem isn’t that the government has insufficient access to information about us; it’s that officials have too easy access to too much information. And soon, if we don’t act to stop these power grabs, the imbalance of power between ordinary people and the state—wherein the secretive intelligence agencies know everything about us while we know next to nothing about them—will grow worse.

Terrorism as Pretext for Intervention in Middle East

In order to understand the hype surrounding the phenomena of Islamic radicalism and terrorism, we need to understand the prevailing global economic order and its prognosis. What the pragmatic economists have forecasted about the free market capitalism has turned out to be true; whether we like it or not. A kind of global economic entropy has set into motion. The money is flowing from the area of high monetary density to the area of low monetary density. The rise of the BRICS countries in the 21st century is the proof of this tendency. BRICS are growing economically because the labor in developing economies is cheap; labor laws and rights are virtually nonexistent; expenses on creating a safe and healthy work environment are minimal; regulatory framework is lax; expenses on environmental protection are negligible; taxes are low; and in the nutshell, windfalls for the multinational corporations are huge

Frm BBC Journalist: Why Bilderberg Won't Allow BREXIT

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is possible that even if the people vote for the BREXIT, Parliament will bow to their masters the money-junkies in Brussels and sell the British people into foreign servitude.

Of course, the last British ruler with that kind of arrogance was Charles I.

5 Ways George Orwell’s 1984 Has Come True Since It Was Published 67 Years Ago

By Claire Bernish

It’s debatable whether George Orwell surmised the ominous threat of totalitarianism that inspired him to pen the dystopic vision, 1984, would extend worldwide and resurface nearly seven decades after its publication. But the novel’s apt description of a world on end have undoubtedly come to pass.

Innumerable examples evidence how 1984 would better be described as a dark portent than a fascinating read, but one thing — the political language dubbed Newspeak, employed by the ruling government, Ingsoc — seems to have served as an instruction manual for the American empire.

Political language stands as arguably the most influential means to shape foreign policy...

Oklahoma Police Can Seize Your Entire Bank Account on a Traffic Stop Without Any Charges

The one state that has gone complete anti-democratic is Oklahoma. It is wise not to travel in that state at all. Oklahoma should be on a no-fly zone. Now, Oklahoma police can outright seize everything you have from debit cards to bank accounts on a traffic stop without any criminal charges being filed. If some policeman thinks you’re doing something illegal, your life is over. Without money, you cannot hire a lawyer and they can just rob everything you have on a whim.

EXTENDING AMERICAN POWER Strategies to Expand U.S. Engagement in a Competitive World Order

Over the course of the last year, a group of current and former government officials, strategists, and scholars spanning the political spectrum met for a monthly dinner series through the Center for a New American Security’s “Extending American Power” project, co-chaired by Dr. Robert Kagan and the Hon. James P. Rubin. The goal of the series was to bring together a bipartisan group to help shape the national conversation on America’s role in the world during the run-up to the presidential election in November 2016. The group convened multiple times to discuss a range of regional and functional issues from the Middle East to Asia to the international economy. At a time when partisanship in the American political establishment has reached unprecedented heights, CNAS believes it is more important than ever to rebuild the national consensus on America’s role in the world.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This "Center for a New American Security" smells like the old "Project for the New American Century" with a new coat of paint!

Robert Kagan, the current co-chair of CNAS, was a co-founder of PNAC along with William Kristol!

Certainly the agenda is the same, global domination by the United States through perpetual war!

Ex-UK ambassador: Corrupt Crown Prosecution Service Bins Action on Extraordinary Rendition and Torture

Anybody who is in any way surprised at today’s announcement that nobody will be prosecuted for extraordinary rendition and torture, is in deep denial about what a corrupt and rotten state the United Kingdom is.

Among the many documents the Metropolitan Police (who are genuinely furious) handed to the Director of Public Prosecutions, and which now lies in a bin, is my own sworn evidence of the complicity in torture of Jack Straw and senior FCO officials. I therefore now publish the statement I made to the Metropolitan Police.

LaVoy Finicum’s Widow: The Time to Stand is Now

As seen in the video released by “authorities,” LaVoy exited the vehicle in an apparent attempt to draw gunfire away from his traveling companions. Sadly, LaVoy was executed for his actions. Deserving, perhaps, a ticket for Trespassing, LaVoy Finicum was basically murdered for taking a peaceful stand against the Federal Government. LaVoy’s death, however, was not in vain, as countless patriots have mobilized and are taking action as a direct result his criminal execution. One prominent member of the Finicum family, LaVoy’s widow, Jeanette, has picked up the torch and is taking action.

Goldman Crushes Democrat's Dreams: Shows Obamacare Has Cost "A Few Hundred Thousand Jobs"

We suspect Lloyd Blankfein will be receiving a call from The White House (or Treasury) very soon as Goldman Sachs' economists did the unthinkable in the age of political correctness - while investigating the state of under-employment in America, the smartest people in the room found that ObamaCare has led to a rise in involuntary part-time employment, estimating that "a few hundred thousand workers" have been forced to cut hours and has "created disincentives for full-time employment."
