How Israel lobby manufactured UK Labour Party’s anti-Semitism crisis

But an investigation by The Electronic Intifada has found that some of the most prominent stories about anti-Semitism in the party are falsified.

The Electronic Intifada can reveal that a key player in Labour’s “anti-Semitism crisis” covered up his involvement in the Israel lobby.

Most Labour members so accused are in reality being attacked for expressing opinions in favor of Palestinian human rights and particularly for supporting the boycott of Israel.

Labour activists, many of them Jews, have told The Electronic Intifada that false accusations of anti-Semitism are being used as a weapon against Corbyn by the party’s right-wing.

Satanists are furious that Boehner compared Ted Cruz to the Dark Lord

On Wednesday night, former House Speaker John Boehner bluntly called GOP candidate Ted Cruz “Lucifer in the flesh.”

When asked for his opinion about the Texas senator, Boehner said, “I have Democrat friends and Republican friends. I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a bitch in my life.”

It turns out that the Satanic Temple agrees with Boehner’s sentiments — but they said there’s no way Cruz is the living incarnate of Satan.

So Much For The Fifth Amendment: Man Jailed For Seven Months For Not Turning Over Password

A Philadelphia man suspected of possessing child pornography has been in jail for seven months and counting after being found in contempt of a court order demanding that he decrypt two password-protected hard drives.

The suspect, a former Philadelphia Police Department sergeant, has not been charged with any child porn crimes. Instead, he remains indefinitely imprisoned in Philadelphia's Federal Detention Center for refusing to unlock two drives encrypted with Apple's FileVault software in a case that once again highlights the extent to which the authorities are going to crack encrypted devices. The man is to remain jailed "until such time that he fully complies" with the decryption order.

Sheriffs Call for Defying Unconstitutional Gun Control: Feds “The Greatest Threat We Face”

The cavalry is coming... constitutional sheriffs against gun control: “the army to set our nation free.”

[A] group called the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association is intent ... dozens of sheriffs signed a declaration that they would not tolerate any federal agent who attempted to register firearms, arrest someone or seize property in their counties without their consent.

Founder Richard Mack has described the federals as “the greatest threat we face today,” and his association as “the army to set our nation free.”

"Find a true constitutional sheriff who’ll tell the federal government, ‘You’re not going to abuse citizens anymore'..."

U.S. Catholic Bishops Join Mormons, Salvation Army, Others In USSC Amicus Brief Supporting Equal Religious Rights

An obscure but very interesting case involving the resurfacing of a Lutheran school playground is headed for the U.S. Supreme Court. A court in Missouri has ruled that the state can exclude a Lutheran school from its scrap tire program, which uses recycled rubber to resurface asphalt playgrounds. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, who jointly filed a 40-page amicus brief along with Protestant groups in support of the Lutheran school, issued a press release noting, "The case involves a Free Exercise Clause challenge to a decision by the State of Missouri denying a grant for playground resurfacing to an otherwise eligible religious school solely because of its religious affiliation." The amicus brief is actually quite interesting reading, chock-full of long-established legal precedents and case law regarding benefits given to religious organizations by the state.

TAKING PAGE FROM ISRAEL WAR TACTICS, US MILITARY EMPLOYS CONTROVERSIAL 'ROOF KNOCKING'

An Israeli tactic deemed "ineffective" at preventing civilian causalities by a United Nations commission has now been adopted by the United States in its fight against ISIS, according to a U.S. military official.

Air Force Maj. Peter Gersten, the deputy commander for operations and intelligence for the U.S.-led coalition, explained at a press briefing Tuesday that the tactic dubbed "knocking on the roof" was, in fact, used during a strike in Mosul, Iraq against a "major distributor of funds to Daesh fighters." A woman the military had seen come and go with her children from the building died in the strike—"an unfortunality," as Gersten called it.

Stockman: Anything Trumps Hillary

It’s all over except the shouting. That is, the primary election season effectively ended last night and now the actual shouting match between Hillary and The Donald begins.

This will surely be the most entertaining election in US history, and probably the most pointless, too. After all, Hillary wants to use government to make Government Great Again. And Trump promises to use government to make America Great Again.

But government doesn’t make anything great, including itself. It is a necessary evil that always and everywhere is driven toward self-aggrandizement and mission creep by the politicians and special interest lobbies which control its operations.

“You must respect authority.”

That was the take-home lesson for some middle schoolers at the 9/11 Memorial in New York City.

It probably comes as no surprise that this is what kids are being taught these days in public schools.

Last week a group of patriotic kids went to the 9/11 Memorial site and began singing the national anthem. One would think this was a respectful thing to do for fallen countrymen, whose lives, according to the official story, were taken by evil terrorists whom we should all fear.

SWAT RAIDS FAMILY, TERRORIZES DISABLED WOMAN & ARRESTS FAMILY MEMBERS — WHOOPS, WRONG HOUSE

Philadelphia, PA – Police apologized on Wednesday after raiding an innocent family’s home and traumatizing a disabled woman who nearly fell down the stairs. Touted as “innovative” and “state-of-the-art,” the Real Time Crime Center mistakenly directed officers to the wrong house and another botched raid. Around 2:30 a.m. on Wednesday, cops suddenly broke down the Jardine family’s door and raided their home while holding them at gunpoint. Despite the fact that the family had committed no crime, officers ordered them out of their rooms and placed them in handcuffs during the middle of the night. “I’m coming out of the shower, and there’s a Pump Action Rifle to my chest,” Angel Jardine told WPVI. “He’s just like, ‘Put your hands up.’ Rifle in my chest, and I’m like, ‘Whoa.’”

“RETALIATORY CULTURE” AT TSA HAS “PARALYZED” AGENCY AND COMPROMISED SECURITY GOALS, SAY WHISTLEBLOWERS

Crackdowns on dissenters and lenient treatment of unqualified upper management have left theTransportation Security Administration "paralyzed" and "in crisis," three agency whistleblowers told Congress on Wednesday. Jay Brainard, the federal security director for the TSA Office of Security Operation, told the House Oversight and Government Reform committee Wednesday morning that, between 2011 and 2015, the TSA staffed its leadership positions with "unprepared employees" who were chosen not for their qualifications, but because they were well-liked within the agency. "For years we had many senior executives, most of which completely lacked the experience needed for their position, run amok and make decisions or conduct themselves in an unethical manner which eroded our ability to complete the security mission and grossly compromised the integrity of our agency," Brainard told the committee.

Saying 'vagina' got me fired, Battle Creek middle school teacher says

Vagina. It's a noun describing female anatomy that caused such outrage in the Michigan Legislature in 2012 that a legislator was blocked from speaking after using it.

There is a great deal of uproar about the collapse of the GOP – thwarted and upstaged by Donald Trump at every turn… but it should really come as no surprise.

After all, this is the same Republican party whose former Speaker of the House was just jailed for being a "serial child molester":

Former US house speaker Dennis Hastert was sentenced to 15 months in prison on Wednesday by a federal judge who called him a “serial child molester” after emotional testimony from a man who said Hastert abused him when he was 17.

Academic Freedom and Free Speech: Prof. James Tracy (says Sandy Hook was a hoax) Files Civil Rights Suit against Florida Atlantic University

AU school officials first threatened Tracy with disciplinary action after a defamatory local and national media attack concerning Tracy’s online postings in early 2013. However, the University’s administration withdrew its initial threats following intervention by Tracy’s union representatives at UFF and FEA.

In late 2015, Professor Tracy was again threatened with disciplinary action for requesting clarification on and questioning changes made to the University’s vague and confusing “Conflict of Interest/Outside Activities” policy. Instead of coming to his aid, Tracy’s faculty union representatives, including representatives and officials from UFF and FEA, conspired with and aided the University in terminating Tracy’s tenured employment—denying him meaningful representation and defense against the University’s threatened discipline.

Despite repeated assurances made by Tracy’s union representatives that a response and grievance would be filed for Tracy in a timely manner, as required by the University’s collective bargaining agreement, Tracy’s representatives failed to ever file a response or grievance, resulting in Professor Tracy’s automatic termination on January 6, 2016.

Chemo child abuse: Connecticut FORCED 17-year old girl to have chemotherapy without her consent... now her cancer is back

After doctors stated that Cassandra needed the treatment, which has an 80 to 95 percent success rate, the court ruled that she was too young to decide about her own health, and forced her into getting chemotherapy. At first, Cassandra and her mother complied with the decision and went through with the treatment. After receiving two rounds of chemotherapy, however, Cassandra ran away from home, refusing any further treatment.

Unfortunately, the court intervened again, and Cassandra was removed from her mother's home, allowing the DCF to take temporary custody and make all decisions regarding Cassandra's medical treatments. She was forcibly hospitalized, and underwent a grueling five months of chemotherapy.

Self-Ownership Is the Foundation of Freedom

The immorality associated with violation of the principle of self-ownership lies at the root of problems that could lead to our doom as a great nation. In fiscal 2015, total government spending — federal, state and local — was about $6.41 trillion. That’s about 36 percent of our gross domestic product. The federal government spent $3.69 trillion. At least two-thirds of that spending can be described as the government’s taking the property of one American and giving it to another. That’s our moral tragedy: We’ve become a nation of people endeavoring to live at the expense of others — in a word, a nation of thieves.

In past ages, those who dared to speak out against tyranny—viewed as an act of treason—were blinded, castrated, disfigured, mutilated, rendered mute by having their tongues cut out of their heads, and ultimately crucified. In the American police state, the price to be paid for speaking truth to power (also increasingly viewed as an act of treason) is surveillance, censorship, jail and ultimately death. It’s a diabolically ingenious tactic for muzzling, disarming and ultimately eliminating one’s critics or potential adversaries.

INFANT PARALYZED AND BRAIN-DAMAGED AFTER 6-MONTH VACCINATIONS, DOCTORS THREATENED PARENTS TO FURTHER VACCINATE THEIR DAUGHTER

Many parents are desperate to find help in healing their vaccine-injured child. July Garza is a mother who felt vaccines were important and never could imagine the pain her child would suffer as a result of bringing her into the doctor’s office to get vaccinated.

At the tender young age of six months old, her daughter Cerenity was given eight vaccine doses that nearly ended her life. Cerenity went from being a completely healthy baby before receiving those vaccines to a little girl who now suffers from paralysis and brain damage.

Cerenity’s neurologist told her parents they didn’t have a good enough reason to stop vaccinating her, despite the fact that the vaccines she received are known to cause these serious reactions. Multiple doctors have insisted the vaccines had nothing to do with her injuries.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A good place to start is the following website, as to what is in vaccines.

http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/vac-gen/additives.htm

However, intelligent parents need to go further than that.

If your child is to be immunized, find the name of the pharmaceutical company which manufactures the vaccine your child will be receiving. Check the website of that company on what some of the side-effects can be of that vaccine.

Because, as reported in April of 2015 at http://www.collective-evolution.com/2014/04/09:

An FDA report from 2005 titled “Diphtheria and Tetanus Toxoids and Acellular Pertussis Vaccine Adsorbed Tripedia” outlines a number of adverse events reported during post-approval use of the Tripedia vaccine, and one of them is autism. (1) Health-care providers who administer vaccines are required to keep permanent vaccination records, they are also required to report any occurrences (adverse events such as autism) to the Secretary of the US Department of Health and Human Services following immunization of any events. The report also illustrates that the tripedia vaccine has not been evaluated for its carcinogenic or mutagenic potentials or impairment of fertility. This makes one wonder what other vaccines have not been properly evaluated. Furthermore, it illustrates how a review by the Institute of Medicine (IOM) found evidence for a causal relationship between tetanus toxoid and both brachial neuritis and Guillain-Barre syndrome. This document just adds more confusion to the topic of vaccines and autism. How can the general public be expected to believe there is no link when more evidence keeps on mounting that suggests that there could be. Why does an FDA document even mention autism and its association with vaccinations? There is good reason to be confused, this isn’t fear mongering. For example, a recently published study in the peer-reviewed journal Translational Neurodegeneration provided epidemiological evidence supporting an association between increasing organic-Hg exposure from thimerosal-containing childhood vaccines and the risk of ASD diagnosis. (2) On the other hand, a study published in March of 2013 determined that “Increasing exposure to Antibody-Stimulating Proteins and Polysaccharides (antigens) in Vaccines is Not Associated with Risk of Autism.” You can view that study here. Back the other way, there are a number of court cases where families have been compensated for vaccine related injuries. Courts have ruled (in multiple cases) that vaccines did indeed cause autism. How could a court of law rule this to be so if there is no scientific link (as claimed by governing health authorities) between vaccines and autism? Courts have compensated over 80 families linking vaccines to autism. Here is one example, you can learn more about that process by watching this video. I think it’s important to keep an open mind with regards to health authorities covering up information involving the risks associated with vaccines. Proof is already in the public domain. Researchers at the University of British Colombia have uncovered evidence showing that health authorities, pharmaceutical companies and vaccine manufactures have known about the dangers associated with multiple vaccines, but have withheld them from public knowledge in order to maintain “herd immunity.” (3) There have also been reports that the CDC has been hiding data showing that mercury in vaccines is linked to autism, you can read more about that here.

When you're a parent, knowledge is power.

For your eyes only: Amazon won't sell you the new James Bond film Spectre on DVD unless you sign up to its £79-a-year Prime service

Upset customer, Bradley Kerr, from Birkenhead, said: 'What's with items starting to appear for sale as 'Prime Exclusive'?

'It's utter nonsense to need an £80 subscription to simply buy stuff from Amazon.

'Amazon Prime should provide perks to Prime members, not lock out non-members from basic services.'

'Don't you guys earn enough money without forcing people to join Prime?'

Amazon bosses have also given the 'exclusively for Prime Members' badge to a selection of Barbie toys and other video games.

POLICE KILLINGS BY AMERICA'S LARGEST POLICE DEPARTMENTS

Black people were more likely to be killed by America's largest city police departments:

Police departments disproportionately killed black people, who were 41% of victims despite being only 20% of the population living in these cities.
41 of the 60 police departments disproportionately killed black people relative to the population of black people in their jurisdiction.
14 police departments killed black people exclusively in 2015, 100% of the people they killed were black. For only 5 police departments were 100% of those killed white.

59 of the nation's largest 60 city police departments killed civilians in 2015. Some killed at much higher rates than others:
Bakersfield, Oklahoma City, Oakland, Indianapolis Metropolitan, Long Beach, New Orleans, St. Louis Metropolitan, and San Francisco Police Departments killed people at the highest rates in 2015.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is critically important to know, if you live in one of the cities listed, or are about to relocate to a city listed in this report.

VIDEO: OFFICER LOSES IT, GOES ‘ROBOCOP’ AND BREAKS AN INNOCENT ELDERLY MAN’S LEG OVER A TOMATO

An innocent Atlanta man spent multiple days handcuffed to a hospital bed with a broken leg and a severed artery after an Atlanta cop falsely accused him of stealing a tomato that he actually bought.

Tyrone Carnegay spent then spent three days in jail before the charges were finally dropped. The interaction was all caught on a Walmart security camera.

“I was chained to my bed in Grady. They said I assaulted him and obstructed him from doing his job,” Carnegay told the local news. The video proves that none of this was true.

Carnegay explained to WSB-TV that he was walking out of the store after purchasing his groceries when an off-duty Atlanta cop, working security at the store, walked up to him without warning and began beating him.

“He’s giving me a verbal command. As he’s grabbing me, he’s beating me at the same time. ‘Get on ground.’ Beating me at the same time,” Carnegay said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If you are planning a seminar or convention, and to date, Atlanta had been one of the sites you had considered, please take that city off your list; if you are in touch with any Atlanta Convention & Visitor's Bureau, and please inform them that police violence against the elderly innocent is your reason, you are concerned about the physical safety of your convention attendees, and tell them to please not contact you further.

If you were planning a vacation to Atlanta, change the venue, and let Atlanta's Mayor, Kasim Reed, know the reason why; you now understand that visiting Atlanta can be hazardous to one's health, in terms of broken bones and internal bleeding caused by the police.

Because it is only when the economic pressure on a city gets hard enough, and painful enough, that someone, with some real clout, will have a long talk with Captain of Atlanta "peace" officers, and advise them that their behaviour is hurting the city economically, and that this cannot be allowed to stand.

Judge Warns Of CHAOS If Hillary Is NOT Indicted

While America anxiously awaits the FBI’s results in the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s handling of classified information – wondering if she will ever face criminal charges – one man is explaining what will happen should she not be indicted.

And it still doesn’t look good for the former Secretary of State.

Judge Andrew Napolitano, who recently stated that “the evidence of her (Hillary’s) guilt is overwhelming,” claims that if she isn’t held accountable for her crimes, it would still be “catastrophic” for her candidacy.

How catastrophic?

Napolitano believes “she will be replaced on the Democratic ticket.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Judge underestimates Hillary. The word is that she has sent out a warning that if she is not made President, she will blow the whistle on all the dead bodies and how they got to be dead bodies, and bring down the whole government.

BREAKING: As Voting Begins, The GOP Establishment Received HORRIBLE NEWS!

Voters are already lining up in Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Maryland, Connecticut, and Delaware to vote in the Republican presidential primary, with 172 total delegates available. And it looks like doom for the GOP political establishment. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Ohio Governor John Kasich’s secret plan to team up against Donald Trump appears to have already failed!

According to the NBC/Survey Monkey poll, conservative businessman Donald J. Trump has reached the “magic” 50% support threshold nationally, for the first time ever. This bombshell news destroys media expectations that Trump’s support has a ceiling… Instead, as more voters are starting to pay attention to the race, the more they are becoming active supporters of Trump!

HOW BRIBES TO POLITICIANS FROM ARMS DEALERS KEEP WARS GOING

With leaders all over the world on the take for millions, the defense industry has spawned a global business that profits from war, supports corruption everywhere, and must, for its survival, fan the flames of civil wars and global conflict.

That is the premise of “Shadow World” — a powerful new documentary. In this week’s podcast, WhoWhatWhy’s Jeff Schectman talks to the film’s director Johan Grimonprez and its writer Andrew Feinstein.

As a member of the African National Congress in South Africa, Feinstein saw firsthand how the corruption and payoffs worked — and their grim consequences:

“Within five years of the advent of our democracy, our country decided to spend $10 billion on weapons that we didn’t need, that we barely used, and the primary reason for that was that $300 millions in bribes were paid. And it had a profound effect of South Africa’s democracy.

South Africans rise in the thousands against US Agro-chem giant Monsanto

The message of one mother in Utah, with ever-growing support from other people who were just as frustrated by the lack of responsibility shown by those who are supposed to act in the public’s best interest, spread like wildfire, not only in Utah and across the USA, but internationally.

By the time of the march, over two million people had become involved in 436 countries. The event was generously covered by Russia Today, with a live feed starting with the first march in Japan, to New Zealand, Australia, Asia, Europe, Africa, Canada, US, South America and finally ending in Hawaii.

Four years later, food products are still not labeled informing people of the contents of the products that they are spending their money on and consuming, or the hazard that these products are to their health.

Psychologists Urged to Examine Complicity In Supporting Abusive Systems of Torture in US Criminal Justice System and Covert Government Programs

*hyperlinks live at source*

We’ve documented US government use of harmful and deadly experiments upon the public (here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here for just a few, and that the US tortures people in Orwellian violation of six binding areas of law). Ramola’s testimony of being a “targeted individual” is here.

Psychologists for Social Responsibility (PsySR), the group which led the call to end the involvement of American psychologists in the CIA Torture program at Guantanamo, and took the American Psychological Association (APA) to task last summer for their “highly permissive” ethics through which the APA had colluded with the Department of Defense “to preserve unethical detention and interrogation practices”, is calling now for psychologists to look closer at Cruel, Inhumane, and Degrading Treatment (CIDT), torture, and abuse ongoing currently within the US Criminal Justice system and undertaken “with the consent and acquiescence of public officials.”

TAVISTOCK INSTITUTE OF HUMAN RELATIONS: THE BEST KEPT SECRET IN AMERICA

Formed in 1947, the Tavistock Institute is an independent not-for-profit organization which seeks to combine research in the social sciences with professional practice. Problems of institution-building and organizational design and change are being tackled in all sectors – government, industry and commerce, health and welfare, education, etc. – nationally and internationally, and clients range from multinationals to small community groups. A growth area has been the use of a developmental approach to evaluation of new and experimental programs, particularly in health, education and community development. This has also produced new training events alongside the regular program of group relations conferences. The Institute owns and edits the monthly journal Human Relations (published by Plenum Press) which is now in its 48th year, and has recently launched (in conjunction with Sage Publications) a new journal Evaluation.

How Police Officers Seize Cash From Innocent Americans

Settlers in the American colonies saw such forfeiture laws as "unreasonable searches and seizures which deprived persons of life, liberty, or property, without due process." Nonetheless, Congress adopted its own version of civil forfeiture, allowing government officials to seize the property of anyone who failed to pay his or her taxes. Over the next few centuries, the government only sporadically utilized civil forfeiture -- though various derivations of these laws allowed authorities to seize property without a criminal conviction.
While the police only occasionally took advantage of civil forfeiture in the early 20th century, it truly exploded in popularity in the 1980s, with the rise of the War on Drugs. In 1984, President Reagan enacted the Comprehensive Crime Control Act, which enhanced the ability of police officers to seize cash from anyone and everyone suspected of a drug crime. The goal was to systematically dismantle the drug world by seizing cash.

It's not Jeremy Hunt imposing a junior doctors' contract that will destroy the NHS – it's TTIP

Pressure to push through the controversial EU-US trade deal, TTIP, was ramped up this week as Barack Obama urged EU countries to push forwards with negotiations.

Obama’s statement comes in response to massive public concerns, both in Europe and the US, over the TTIP deal which seeks to ease trade between the EU and US by removing regulatory barriers. The problem is that these ‘barriers’ are, in many cases, important rules protecting our rights and safety in areas such as the environment, food, privacy, public health, workers’ rights and, most worryingly, public services such as the NHS.

TTIP proponents have long argued that the NHS will not be affected by the deal. But the fact is that the UK’s healthcare services are, and always have been, on the negotiating table, having received no exclusive exemption from talks.

Possible End Game: The United States Has Created a Climate That Could Easily Be Transformed Into a War

To summarize, akin to ancient Rome, the United States has over-extended herself. She has created a climate that could easily be transformed into a war on a slight pretext. Wars, as it is well known are also a means a nation can extricate itself from debt and financial responsibility. The dying Petrodollar system has been on life support for some time, and it appears other nations such as the BRIC’s are taking the initiative to return to a true monetary standard. This is the same gold and silver standard that the U.S. should never have left in the first place.

BURGLARY AT AMSTERDAM HOME OF REPORTER ARRESTED IN TURKEY

Ebru Umar’s home in Amsterdam was broken into overnight. The home was ransacked and a laptop was stolen, the Dutch journalist, currently stuck in Turkey after being arrested for insulting president Recep Tayyip Erdogan, said to Metro Nieuws.

“I currently find myself in a whirlpool”, Umar said to the newspaper. “So much is happening, but I’m stuck years. I’m not allowed to go to the Netherlands.” Her neighbor called her with the news of the break in. “The front door was forced and everything is turned upside down. My old laptop was stolen. Fortunately, I brought the new one with me to Turkey.”

Umar was arrested at her vacation home in Kusadasi on Saturday night for insulting the Turkish president on Twitter. She was released again on Sunday morning, but is not allowed to leave the country.

Obama: 'We Are Fortunate to Be Living in the Most Peaceful...Era in Human History'

President Barack Obama, speaking in Germany on Monday, said we're fortunate to be living in the "most peaceful" era in human history.

"I want to begin with an observation that, given the challenges that we face in the world and the headlines we see every day, may seem improbable but it's true. We are fortunate to be living in the most peaceful, most prosperous, most progressive era in human history," he said.

After touting world peace, Obama moved on to prosperity and progress:

"More people live in democracies, where they live wealthier and healthier and better educated with a global economy that has lifted up more than a billion people from extreme poverty and created new middle classes from the Americas to Africa to Asia."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, it's now official; the sitting President of the United States.... has absolutely, utterly, and completely lost his mind!!

The US government is on the verge of initiating the next great war; the true unemployment numbers are horrific, at right around 20%; more people live in Kleptocracies than true democracies, including US citizens; the global economy has caused more outsourcing/offshoring of formerly American jobs, leaving what is left of the middle class in economic misery; and the only middle class evolution has been in China.

WORSE THAN CRIMINALS — COPS USE ASSET FORFEITURE TO STEAL $53K FROM AN ORPHANAGE AND A CHURCH

The criminal depths to which police will sink to bolster their budgets, apparently have no limit, as a recent case of police theft in Oklahoma illustrates. To keep society safe, sheriff’s deputies in Muskogee County, Oklahoma robbed a church and an orphanage of $53,000. Real American heroes. Eh Wah, 40, a refugee from Burma, who became a US citizen more than a decade ago, was traveling with the cash to deliver it to the intended recipients when he was targetted by modern day, state-sanctioned pirates — for a broken tail light. Eh Wah had been entrusted with the money by the members of his Christian band who had been on a 19-city tour raising funds for the Dr. T. Thanbyah Christian Institute, a religious liberal arts college in Burma serving the Karen community there. And, they had also collected funds for the Hsa Thoo Lei orphanage in Thailand, which serves internally displaced Karen people.

This is not a conspiracy theory and it is not hyperbole. Stick with me for a moment.

National Security Letters are now constitutional, judge rules

A judge who in 2013 declared that National Security Letters (NSLs) were unconstitutional has now changed her mind in an unsealed ruling made public Thursday.

Federal investigators issue tens of thousands of NSLs each year to banks, ISPs, car dealers, insurance companies, doctors, and others. The letters, which demand personal information, don't need a judge's signature and come with a gag to the recipient that forbids the disclosure of the NSL to the public or the target.

The NSL brouhaha strangely isn't even about the Fourth Amendment right to privacy, as the courts have generally stated that the information sought in the letters is a business record not protected by the Constitution. Instead, the legal fight is about the First Amendment.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder just what the Federal government had on US District Judge Susan Illston, to compel her to turn her opinion around so absolutely completely on this issue.

David Swanson: US Wars Are Not Waged Out of Generosity or for Democracy

Why do we seem to be trapped in an endless cycle of war, with each new military adventure promised to be different than the last? David Swanson's War Is a Lie takes apart and thoroughly refutes every major argument that has been used to justify wars, especially those wars most widely trumpeted as just and good.

In this interview, David Swanson, author of War Is a Lie, counters the theory that war is an inevitable part of human nature, says the antiwar movement is larger than the dominant media suggest and shares the view that wars are fought primarily for money and markets.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Congress - and the White House - are all purchased commodities in the struggle for market domination by corporations.

And those naive enough to believe that the American election process gives us the candidates - and ultimately - the right people for the jobs of Congressional representatives and president, are fooling themselves.

By the times candidates are vetted, and chosen (and financially supported) by the corporations which own them, it matters not what the voters think at all; voting in this country has devolved to a Kabuki-like exercise in which people have the illusion that they have had some say in the matter of American leadership, when they have none whatsoever.

And the degree of vote-rigging in this country?!? Absolutely amazing. If you have not seen it, please see Bev Harris' video, "Hacking democracy", which demonstrates, painfully clearly, how voting machines can be rigged in favor of a particular candidate.

Obama Dismisses NKorea Proposal on Halting Nuke Tests

A day after North Korea's foreign minister told The Associated Press that his country is ready to halt its nuclear tests if the United States suspends its annual military exercises with South Korea, President Barack Obama said Sunday that Washington isn't taking the proposal seriously and Pyongyang would "have to do better than that."

North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Su Yong, interviewed Saturday by the AP, also defended his country's right to maintain a nuclear deterrent and warned that Pyongyang won't be cowed by international sanctions. And for those waiting for the North's regime to collapse, he had this to say: Don't hold your breath.

"Stop the nuclear war exercises in the Korean Peninsula, then we should also cease our nuclear tests," he said in his first interview Saturday with a Western news organization.

Obama dismissed North Korea's latest overture at a news conference Sunday with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Hannover, Germany.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to President Obama: the longer you wait to engage with China in serious negotiations to replace the Armistice (which is simply a cessation of military activities)with a real peace treaty, the sooner Kim Jung Un, or his successor will possess - and be able to successfully aim - a nuclear weapon.

This should have been on your "to do" list from the very moment you took the oath of office; but obviously, you have chosen to just let the situation fester here, because you have been hoping for a potential war with China, in order to defeat the rise of the yuan.

But sir, I need to ask you: did you happen to get the memo that last week that China is issuing a gold-backed yuan, which is not convertible at all into US dollars?!?

Apparently, Mr. President, the Chinese government was way ahead of you on this.

TPP Consultation Turns Away Scores of Lower Mainlanders (BC Canada)

Scores of Lower Mainland residents who wanted to tell the House of Commons Standing Committee on International Trade what they think of the 12-country Trans-Pacific Partnership trade and investment deal negotiated by the Harper Conservatives were denied that chance Monday.

More than 50 people rallied outside the Richmond Radisson Hotel where the hearings were scheduled to be held, eventually being frisked before entering the hearing hall on a red carpet laid by protesters that read "170,000 Say No to TPP" -- referring to the number of signatures on an anti-TPP petition.

Although the committee did choose to hear from some applicants Monday, as for 170 other members of the activist group Leadnow who had applied to address the committee, they learned last week, without explanation, that they would not be heard.

"They were all rejected," said the group's Vancouver organizer, Jolan Bailey. "They didn't even tell us when they did. We only found out when they published the list of who was speaking -- we noticed that none of our people were on there."

IN 1 OUT OF EVERY 5 AMERICAN FAMILIES, NOBODY HAS A JOB

If nobody is working in one out of every five U.S. families, then how in the world can the unemployment rate be close to 5 percent as the Obama administration keeps insisting? The truth, of course, is that the U.S. economy is in far worse condition than we are being told. Last week, I discussed the fact that the Federal Reserve has found that 47 percent of all Americans would not be able to come up with $400 for an unexpected visit to the emergency room without borrowing it or selling something. But Barack Obama and his minions never bring up that number. Nor do they ever bring up the fact that 20 percent of all families in America are completely unemployed. The following comes directly from the Bureau of Labor Statistics…

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These are the real unemployment numbers, which are just going to get worse with time.

This is why the US government is in such a hot hurry to get a major war going, so as to attempt to distract Americans from the real culprits in their economic misery.

MALAYSIA WILL LIKELY FORCE ‘POLITICAL BLOGS’ AND NEWS WEBSITES TO REGISTER WITH THE GOVERNMENT

Malaysia’s Communications and Multimedia Ministry has formally proposed legal amendments to the Attorney General that would require the country’s political blogs and online news portals to register with the government. Minister Salleh Said Keruak denies that the legislation amounts to censorship, arguing that the proposal is designed to preserve the Internet as a tool for promoting Malaysia’s economic growth, and meant to protect the country against internal divisions brought about by misleading information published online, he says.

Human rights groups and media freedom advocates denounced the proposal as a curtailment of free speech, saying the move reverses the government’s earlier stated commitment to promoting Internet freedom.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A short memo to Minister Salleh Said Keruak: this proposed legislation is absolute, and complete, codswallop, and you know it!

WHITE HOUSE ADMITS — LOCKING PEOPLE IN CAGES FOR VICTIMLESS CRIMES IS DEVASTATING TO THE ECONOMY

On Saturday, economists in U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration released a report detailing the adverse effects on the economy derived from locking non-violent drug offenders and criminals behind bars.

For decades, a guiding philosophy of authoritarians was that locking more people up would result in less crime. This has created a prison state in the U.S., which represents 4.4% of the world’s population yet houses 22% of the world’s prisoners.

Since 1980 alone, the US prison population has skyrocketed by nearly 5 times.

H0wever, the negative effects of such a totalitarian approach to drug crimes and other victimless offenses is having a staggering economic impact on the United States.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The alleged US government's "war on drugs" is just plain illogical, costly, and completely ridiculous, period, end of discussion.

The country of Portugal has been a trail blazer, when it comes to enlightened drug policies. What they did was to decriminalise small amounts of drugs for personal use, but urge counseling to help people get off drugs.

The result?!?

A massive decrease in illegal drug use, and much less experimentation with drugs by teens.

But, unfortunately, what the US government appears pathologically incapable of doing is learning from both the successes of other countries, when it comes to drug and prison programs that make sense.

For example, why is Sweden closing so many of their prisons?!? The reason for this is that the focus of prison is 100% rehabilitation, and the recidivism here is minimal.

OF course the Swedish approach is logical, and the results speak for themselves.

Logic and the US government, unfortunately, have the most tenuous relationship possible at best.

POLICE SWEEP AWAY BRAZIL’S ‘STREET CHILDREN’ AHEAD OF OLYMPICS

With a faltering economy and an $11 billion investment at stake, Brazil wants nothing more than to stage a successful Olympic Games come August. The government is building new transportation and sports venues, hiring security guards and deploying soldiers, and sprucing up Rio de Janeiro’s most-visited areas. But “cleaning the streets,” as the project is euphemistically known, is not an effort to haul garbage but to sweep away homeless people and drug dealers—including the often drug-addicted children who live on the sidewalks of some of Rio’s wealthiest neighborhoods.

In the Copacabana and Maracanã areas, two of the neighborhoods preparing to host the Olympics, teenagers and children as young as 7 sleep by the roadside or beg for change. Boys often join gangs and sell drugs to survive while girls frequently turn to prostitution. Many smoke crack or sniff glue. Some live on the streets full time; others spend nights in the favelas, or nearby shantytowns.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A society should be judged on how it treats the most vulnerable of its citizens; what Brazil is doing to the most impoverished, and most vulnerable of its street kids demonstrates a complete, and institutionalized, emotional callousness to the conditions which put these kids on the streets to begin with.

Even with the Olympics coming in August, this will not end well for the Brazilian government, or its people.

Obama’s Global Warming Plan Cost Poor Americans $44 Billion, Raises Taxes By 166%

President Obama’s global warming plan would cost America’s poorest families billions annually, according to a report published Thursday by the Manhattan Institute.

The study estimates that Obama’s global warming plan would increase the costs of living for the poorest American families an additional $19 billion per year, equivalent to increasing their taxes by 166 percent. The tax increase would also raise taxes on other poor families by an extra $25 billion, equal to a 33 percent tax increase. Living costs for the richest households would only increase by 4 percent.

‘The U.K. would not be able to negotiate something with the United States faster than the EU,” Obama told the BBC in an interview published on Saturday. “We wouldn’t abandon our efforts to negotiate a trade deal with our largest trading partner, the European market. But rather, it could be could be five years from now, 10 years now before we were actually able get something done.”

Around the globe, people’s access to water is being threatened every day by one of the most powerful institutions on the globe—the World Bank.

Turkish embassy wants Swedish channel to withdraw film on Armenian genocide

Turkey’s embassy in Stockholm has asked Sweden’s TV4 television network to pull a documentary on the mass killings of Armenians by the Ottoman Empire because the film “will fail to serve the principle of objectivity.”

Ahead of Sunday evening’s scheduled broadcast of a documentary titled “Seyfo 1915 – The Assyrian Genocide,” TV4 said it received an email from Turkish embassy press officer Arif Gulen, in which he opposes the film’s use of the term “genocide,” which is often used to describe the tragic death of thousands of Armenians at the hands of Ottoman Turks during WWI.

The letter, which was subsequently published on TV4’s official website, asks the station to “reconsider your decision on broadcasting of the… documentary film with a balanced and sensible attitude,” while cautioning that “only a competent international tribunal can determine whether a particular event is genocide.”

‘Time for US-German leadership’? Obama, Merkel pushing EU into unpopular TTIP free trade deal

Cleveland must pay $6mn to family of Tamir Rice, 12yo fatally shot by police

The city of Cleveland, Ohio will pay $6 million to the family of Tamir Rice, a 12-year-old boy fatally shot by police in 2014, based on a settlement agreement that allows the city to avoid a high-profile federal civil rights trial.

The agreement, which must still be approved by a probate court, was announced early Monday. The city of Cleveland does not admit any wrongdoing based on the terms of the settlement, according to reports.

Freedland: “I, for one, welcome our Corporate American Overlords”

People are right to complain of the long history of US aggression and intervention in the lives of other sovereign nations…

“People” may be right to complain about it…but I don’t remember Jonathan Freedland, or his paper, complaining about it. Do you? In fact I thought he said the Iraq war had a “silver lining”?

Yup. He did.

And I’m pretty sure he was pro-intervention in Libya, “despite the risks”, right?

Oh yeah. He was.

And I thought America SHOULD intervene in Syria, right Jonathan?

Yup. You said that too.

So people MAY be right to complain…but actually they would be wrong. In fact all of America’s interventions in the Middle East were correct on either a practical or moral level, before or after the fact. How fortunate.

One Day After Threatening The UK, Obama Plays Golf With David Cameron

Following his anti-Brexit Op-Ed which sparked much controversy and confusion as to just why the US president was interfering with yet another domestic issue, Obama held a press conference with UK PM David Cameron in which he in no uncertain terms threatened the UK with trade retaliation if the country were to exit the EU.

He said that "it's fair to say that maybe some point down the line there might be a UK-US trade agreement but that's not going to happen anytime soon because our focus is negotiating with a big bloc, the European Union, to get a trade agreement done. And the UK is going to be in the back of the queue, not because we don't have a special relationship but because given the heavy lift on any trade agreement, us having access to a big market with a lot of countries rather than trying to do piecemeal trade agreements is hugely efficient."

Large U.S. Senate Majority Urges Obama to Boost Israel Military Aid

More than four-fifths of the U.S. Senate have signed a letter urging President Barack Obama to quickly reach an agreement on a new defense aid package for Israel worth more than the current $3 billion per year.

Eighty-three of the 100 senators signed the letter, led by Republican Lindsey Graham and Democrat Chris Coons. Senator Ted Cruz, a 2016 presidential candidate, was one of the 51 Republicans on board. The Senate's Democratic White House hopeful, Bernie Sanders, was not among the 32 Democrats.

Oil tanker laden with North Dakota crude reaches Netherlands

A petroleum tanker laden with 175,000 barrels of North Dakota crude was being offloaded in Europe on Wednesday, the first such overseas shipment of the state’s oil since Congress lifted a 40-year ban on crude exports in December.
***
“It’s a big deal,” said Ron Ness, president of the North Dakota Petroleum Council, a trade group that represents about 500 companies working in the oil patch in the western part of the state. “Once you get a barrel to sea, it will fetch a better price.”

The ban on crude exports was put in place in response to the energy crisis of the 1970s.
***
“Where crude goes is where it gets the best value,” Roper said. “We are always seeking higher value. When the value is right, we will definitely do it.”

The company has said that producers could earn up to $14 more per barrel for domestic sweet crude by selling it on the world market.
***
Ness said lifting the export ban should help bring higher prices for North Dakota oil.

“The whole world is a market now,” he said.

Obama Green Lighted the Heroin Epidemic

Barack Obama ended opium eradication efforts in Afghanistan in 2009, effectively green lighting Afghan opium production and the Afghan heroin trade. By 2010, all US efforts to eradicate Afghan opium ceased. It has been US policy to allow Afghan opium growing and the heroin trade since. US heroin deaths tripled from 3,036 in 2010 to 10,574 in 2014 as a result. Vanda Felbab-Brown at the Brookings Institution. a liberal think tank that often writes reports supporting the Obama Administration, penned “No Easy Exit: Drugs and Counternarcotics Strategies in Afghanistan” in advance of the April 2016 UN Summit on Drugs (UNGASS). No way out for Uncle Sam is more like it. The report is notable for what it omits, which is any mention of the heroin epidemic, the deadliest illicit drug epidemic in history, or any of the tens of thousands of Americans killed by heroin since Obama took office.

Israel puts poet under house arrest

Dareen Tatour has long dreamed of seeing her poems translated from Arabic into other languages — so that they reach people across the world.

One of her poems has indeed been translated recently, but not in the way she had hoped.

A Hebrew version of “Resist, my people, resist them” was read aloud by an Israeli police officer at a Nazareth court hearing on 13 April. Tatour has been charged with incitement to violence based on the contents of that poem, the Arabic original of which is available on YouTube.

Although the poem urges resistance to Israel, it does not call for specific acts of violence. Rather, it draws attention to violent attacks on Palestinians by Israelis.

Weather Channel Founder Slams Global Warming: "The Theory Has Failed"

If Bill Nye had his way, Weather Channel founder John Coleman would be heading for jail. Having spent more than 60 years as a meteorologist, Coleman penned a pointed rebuke to "the science guy's" vehement faith in the 'science' of climate change, exclaiming that "science has taken a back seat at The UN... get politics out of the climate debate."

On this Earth Day 2016, there is a great deal of frenzy about how our Earth is going to become uninhabitable, as the civilized activities of man allegedly trigger unstoppable global warming and climate change.

With the Obama administration set to commit the U.S. to the Paris climate agreement by signing our nation onto the document Friday, it is obvious that science has taken a back seat at the United Nations.

How Long Before Global Financial System Fails?

The global economy turned down in earnest already in 2006 but with a massive worldwide printing and lending program, the world has had a temporary stay of execution. But the effect of this fabricated money has now come to an end. And what else would you expect. To print money that has no value or to lend money that doesn’t exist can never create wealth or save anybody. The downturn will soon start to accelerate and eventually lead to a total failure of the financial system and sovereign defaults. But no one must believe that there will be a sudden implosion or a “reset” that solves or changes everything. Instead, what we will experience is a process with things deteriorating at a fast pace but without one single event that overnight changes everything.

Senior Eurosceptic Conservatives have dismissed Barack Obama’s suggestion that the UK would be “at the back of the queue” in negotiations for a US trade agreement if it left the European Union.

Cabinet ministers accused the “lame duck” US president of making meaningless threats to blackmail the British people into voting to remain in Europe. Others pointed out that Europe and the US had never struck a free trade agreement anyway, and claimed Obama was being manipulated by Downing Street.

Chris Grayling, the leader of the House of Commons, said: “We should not give up our independence just because of what President Obama said.”

PA Delegates Could Swing GOP Race

In Pennsylvania, delegates may have the power to swing GOP presidential race
***
While most states award convention delegates on a winner-take-all or proportional basis, 54 of Pennsylvania’s 71 delegates — three for each of 18 congressional districts — are officially unbound to a candidate and do not have to announce their intentions before Tuesday’s vote. The winners can vote for whomever they want at the convention.
***
The complexities of the process mean Trump could once again come up short on delegates despite winning the popular vote. Campaign manager Corey Lewandowski told reporters after Trump’s victory in New York on Tuesday that Pennsylvania has “a very difficult process” of selecting delegates.

“I don’t want to get into the intricacies of our Pennsylvania strategy, but I think we’ll make sure people know who the Trump delegates are,” he said.

Elizabeth Warren For VP Possible As Clinton Hints At Clinton/Warren Dream Ticket
Hillary Clinton's campaign chairmen John Podesta hinted that women are being considered to Clinton's running mate, and immediately lit the speculation that a dream ticket with Elizabeth Warren is possible.

Just to make the hint a bit more obvious, The Boston Globe reported:

Hillary Clinton’s short list of vice presidential options will include a woman, a top campaign official said in an interview — creating the possibility of an all-female ticket emerging from the Democratic convention in Philadelphia.

Clinton wants “the best person to make the case to the American people,” her campaign chairman, John Podesta, told the Globe. “We’ll start with a broad list and then begin to narrow it. But there is no question that there will be women on that list,” he said, adding that staffers are still focused on clinching the primary.

Virginia Governor Allows Convicted Felons To Vote In Boost To Hillary's Election Odds

As the Richmond Times Dispatch reports, Governor Terry McAuliffe today signed an order to restore voting rights to more than 200,000 convicted felons in Virginia. The order applies to nonviolent and violent felons, and according to a confidential draft of research for the order obtained by the Richmond Times Dispatch, is authorized under the Constitution of Virginia. Why this surprising announcement now? As Reuters says, the "move that could help the Democratic nominee in November's presidential election."

In other words Hillary's elections chances just jump thanks to the support of convicted criminals as at least one state allowed them to vote. Expect many more states to follows.

These SEC Insider Emails Reveal Why No Bankers Have Gone To Jail

This is where the email trail proving the SEC should be immediately disbanded and its tasks handed off to an impartial, third-party, ideally private agency, begins:

It is the least favorite part of the job. Most of our civil defendants are good people who have done one bad thing.”

In this case, Muoio is referring to career criminals who have violated securities laws on countless ocasions, but for whatever reason, he believes that bringing justice to these "real people" is the "least favorite part of the job." Incidentally bringing justice to criminals is the only part of his job, but he believes they deserve a chance because they have "done one bad thing."

SECRET COURT TAKES ANOTHER BITE OUT OF THE FOURTH AMENDMENT

Defenders of the NSA's mass spying have lost an important talking point: that the erosion of our privacy and associational rights is justified given the focus of surveillance efforts on combating terrorism and protecting the national security. That argument has always been dubious for a number of reasons. But after a November 2015 ruling [.pdf] by the secretive Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) was unsealed this week, it's lost another chunk of its credibility. The ruling confirms that NSA's warrantless spying has been formally approved for use in general criminal investigations. The national security justification has been entirely blown.

The amicus appointed by the FISC, Amy Jeffress a former DOJ attorney, argued:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This program violates the 4th Amendment, which guarantees Americans freedom from unreasonable search and seizure.

This is why the 4th Amendment was created: to enshrine these rights in the Bill of Rights.

I would politely suggest that the FISC court has absolutely no reason for being in the first place, except to guarantee some judicial bureaucrats the only jobs they could find when they realized that were pathologically incapable of being employed in the private sector.

AFTER FIGHTING FOR FREEDOM, 76-YO VET SENTENCED TO DIE IN PRISON FOR TREATING HIS ILLNESS WITH CANNABIS

As public frustration helps sound the death knell for the drug war, its arbitrary laws and policies appear even more absurd. In the latest inexcusable enforcement of an antiquated law, 76-year-old disabled veteran Lee Carroll Brooker will live out what should be his golden years behind bars — for simple possession of cannabis.

Brooker had been treating multiple chronic conditions with cannabis he grew in his son’s backyard; but when officials in Alabama officials discovered the three dozen plants, they threw him in prison for life — without the possibility of parole.

Thanks to a pointless mandatory minimum sentencing catchall — and the Supreme Court’s refusal to hear his case this week — Brooker has been left little recourse but to ultimately die in jail for treating his ailments with a plant.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The prosecutor in this case must be very pleased with himself; another scalp on the belt, I am sure, must have made him nothing less than ecstatic.

And that the Supreme Court refused to hear it makes them culpable in the quicker death this man in prison than he would most likely have had outside of captivity.

But the way this case came down, on a 76 year old, decorated Veteran, dealing with multiple, chronic illnesses has to be insult to injury, and never should have happened.

This is what happens when you have a "one size fits all" piece of legislation which is so clumsily constructed that there is no room for either mercy or justice.

There is no possible way Hillary will release the transcripts of those speeches because they would reveal how much she is in their corner. Hillary’s response is simply that she does not believe the people are interested in those transcripts. Like her illegal server, she is the most secretive person in Washington circles in many years.

UKRAINE’S NEW SPEAKER OF PARLIAMENT IS A NEO-NAZI

So much for plausible deniability. While apologists and propagandists for the government in Kiev have tried their best to dismiss concerns about the government’s connection to neo-fascist movements, the jig is undeniably up. The new speaker of the Ukrainian parliament, Andriy Parubiy, is a longtime neo-Nazi activist who was a founder of the national socialist party of Ukraine. The party was recently renamed Svoboda which, along with many neofascists, has seen its political fortunes rise in the wake of the 2014 US-backed coup. Parubiy played a significant role in the coup, serving as commandant of the Euromaidan, where he and other neo-fascists helped violently overthrow the democratically-elected President Viktor Yanukovych. The armed battles with security forces in Kiev were carried out by many people, who would later join the right wing militias that would fight in the Ukraine Civil War.

BOMBSHELL: PANAMA PAPERS EXPOSE CLINTON’S ELITE AND CRIMINAL CAMPAIGN DONORS

As her clearly delusional and overtly corrupt supporters cheer her on, Hillary Clinton manages to avoid prosecution, scrutiny and maintains a public persona, thanks largely to the mainstream media, as if she is the nation’s wonderful mother figure. To the Futurama fans out there, however, the only motherly figure Hillary Clinton resembles is the not-so-wonderful Mom, from Momcorp. Still, her ardent supports overlook ties to the banking elite, her complete lack of accomplishments, and her horrific record overseas. But, thanks to the recently leaked Panama Papers, that public persona is getting peeled back layer by layer. Recently leaked names from the papers link the campaign financed-careers to Hillary and the former President Bill Clinton to those who use the offshore tax shelters. Not only do their financiers use unethical offshore tax-havens, but many of them out downright criminals.

Shi’ite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr called on his followers to continue peaceful protests, while he warned the government against interfering with the demonstrations. Currently, the protesters are limited to using Tahrir Square.

However, he doesn’t want them participating in any voting or procedures except electing a new Cabinet.

A team of legal experts and statisticians from Michigan and Pennsylvania used the latest statistical techniques to produce a peer-reviewed estimate of the “dark figure” that lies behind the death penalty – how many of the more than 8,000 men and women who have been put on death row since the 1970s were falsely convicted.

The team arrived at a deliberately conservative figure that lays bare the extent of possible miscarriages of justice, suggesting that the innocence of more than 200 prisoners still in the system may never be recognised.

9/11 coverup czar Zelikow "doesn't know what the real story is"

Philip Zelikow, a self-described expert in "the creation and maintenance of public myths," wrote the 9/11 Commission Report in chapter outline before the Commission even convened.

Zelikow, architect of the Bush Doctrine of framing criminal wars of aggression as "pre-emptive wars," is the co-author of an astonishingly precognitive 1998 Foreign Affairs article speculating about the likely political and cultural consequences of a massive Pearl Harbor style event such as the destruction of the World Trade Center – a catastrophe that, he said, would split time into a dimly-remembered "before" and an Orwellian "after."

Zelikow is on record stating that the 9/11 wars were not about defending the US from any threat. Instead, they were about "the threat that dare not speak its name" – the threat to Israel.

Landmark $15M settlement in Census Bureau background-check lawsuit

In 2010, Houser, then 69, became a lead plaintiff in the federal class-action suit against the Census Bureau. The suit alleged the bureau's hiring policies involving criminal-background checks discriminated disproportionately against African Americans and Latinos, because their arrest and conviction rates tend to be higher.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, basically, an employer can now be sued for refusing to hire past criminals in certain ethnic groups.

2016: the Year Americans Learned Their Elections Are Rigged

The 2016 election has been a wild ride, with two insurgent grassroots campaigns literally giving the political establishment a run for its money. But as the events of this presidential primary season play out, it’s becoming clear the U.S. election — and even more so, the presidential race — is a big scam being perpetrated on the American people.

The Mainstream Media Proclaims Democrats' Race Over, but Ignore Undemocratic Primary Process

The inclusion of superdelegates and exclusion of independents from many Democratic primaries makes the Democratic Party far less democratic than many assumed. This is the prerogative of the Party, of course. But the mainstream media have a responsibility to let people know all this, for the purpose of assessing the significance of a given primary outcome.

What do you think?

I think it is time to invest in tar and feathers.

West Haven I-95 billboard on USS Liberty is anti-Israel, critics charge

A billboard on Interstate 95 is sparking outrage from a local lawyer and criticism from the Anti-Defamation League for what they say is its anti-Israel message.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is an established historical fact that Israel did indeed attack the USS Liberty, killing 34 American servicemen and wounding 174. Saying that reporting Israel's crimes is anti-Israel is like saying reporting on the crimes of the Nazis is anti-German!

"To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize." -- Voltaire

Now, if you want to live in a world where Israel's government decides what you can know and not know ... please move to Israel, and leave our freedom of speech alone!

Koch brothers behind group attempting to derail ban on uranium mining in Grand Canyon: report

Billionaire businessmen Charles and David Koch are channeling money into an Arizona-based organization that’s fighting a plan that would include a permanent ban on uranium mining around the Grand Canyon.

A proposal to declare the area around the Grand Canyon a national monument – Greater Grand Canyon Heritage National Monument – calls for protecting 1.7m acres of land from uranium mining. A number of environmental groups and native tribes as well as the vast majority of Arizonans support the plan.

Still, a handful of Arizona Republicans and a major not-for-profit group are trying to block it. Much of the group’s efforts apparently are being funded by the Koch brothers, according to Greg Zimmerman of the Center for Western Priorities.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF something being pushed is environmentally vile but potentially enormously profitable, look for this "gruesome twosome" to be close at hand.

Israel - Map Censorship

What is the difference between a textbook publisher giving into pressure from Christian fundamentalists seeking to censor the teaching of evolution, and a publisher giving in to Zionists seeking to censor awareness of the ethnic cleansing of Palestine? Neither phenomenon is a matter of opinion or perspective. One act of censorship denies facts established by scientific research. The other denies the documented violation of international law (for instance, the Fourth Geneva Convention) and multiple UN resolutions. So the answer to the question just asked is – there is no difference.

SAUDI PR FIRM RAN TWITTER ACCOUNT FOR SYRIAN OPPOSITION COALITION AKA ISIS

n 2014, consultants at the PR firm Qorvis developed content for the Saudi Arabia embassy's YouTube and Twitter pages, and ran the Twitter account for the Syrian Opposition Coalition.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The following can be read on the website of Qorvis MSLGROUP: and please note the timing of the date in the blurb:

, Qorvis MSLGROUP: Qorvis MSLGROUP works with the Saudi Embassy to affirm the importance of the Saudi/U.S. relationship. Since 2001, Qorvis MSLGROUP has implemented a multifold campaign; including, media relations, advertising, government relations, grassroots action, and social and digital media. The overall objectives are to reach out to the media with factual information and provide access to Saudi officials; promote Saudi Arabia as an ally in the war on terrorism; meet with key law makers on the Hill, as well as within the administration, to emphasize Saudi Arabia as a strategic ally; and educate the American people about Saudi Arabia and the region.

I have to wonder; was it before or after 9/11 that this group was engaged by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia?!?

And please remember; Saudi financing spawned many terrorist organisations.

As reported at salon.com in January of 2016:

“Everybody’s worried about stopping terrorism. Well, there’s a really easy way: stop participating in it.” So advised world-renowned public intellectual Noam Chomsky, one of the most cited thinkers in human history. The counsel may sound simple and intuitive — that’s because it is. But when it comes to Saudi Arabia, the U.S. ignores it. Journalist Abby Martin devoted an episode of her show “The Empire Files” to exploring the Saudi-U.S. relationship. The episode, aptly titled “Inside Saudi Arabia: Butchery, Slavery & History of Revolt,” displays the brutality of the monarchy in excruciating detail. “If the Saudi kingdom were an enemy of the U.S. government, we’d be shown these images and facts every day on the mainstream media,” Martin observes. The internal repression and human rights abuses inside Saudi Arabia is one thing. Perhaps even more troubling, however, is the monarchy’s support for violent religious extremism. It is here that Chomsky’s advice on stopping terrorism becomes so important. By continually aligning itself with the Saudi regime, the U.S. is fueling the very fire it is fighting in the so-called War on Terror. Saudi Arabia is a theocratic absolute monarchy that governs based on an extreme interpretation of Sharia (Islamic law). It is so extreme, it has been widely compared to ISIS. Algerian journalist Kamel Daoud characterized Saudi Arabia in an op-ed in The New York Times as “an ISIS that has made it.” “Black Daesh, white Daesh,” Daoud wrote, using the Arabic acronym for ISIS. “The former slits throats, kills, stones, cuts off hands, destroys humanity’s common heritage and despises archaeology, women and non-Muslims. The latter is better dressed and neater but does the same things. The Islamic State; Saudi Arabia.” “In its struggle against terrorism, the West wages war on one, but shakes hands with the other,” Daoud continued. “This is a mechanism of denial, and denial has a price: preserving the famous strategic alliance with Saudi Arabia at the risk of forgetting that the kingdom also relies on an alliance with a religious clergy that produces, legitimizes, spreads, preaches and defends Wahhabism, the ultra-puritanical form of Islam that Daesh feeds on.” Since the November Paris attacks, in which 130 people were massacred in a series of bombings and shootings for which ISIS claimed responsibility, the West has constantly spoken of the importance of fighting extremism. At the same time, however, the U.S., U.K., France, and other Western nations have continued supporting the Saudi regime that fuels such extremism. Saudi political dissidents like Turki al-Hamad have constantly argued this point. In a TV interview, al-Hamad insisted the religious extremism propagated by the Saudi monarchy “serves as fuel for ISIS.” “You can see [in ISIS videos] the volunteers in Syria ripping up their Saudi passports,” al-Hamad said. “In order to stop ISIS, you must first dry up this ideology at the source. Otherwise you are cutting the grass, but leaving the roots. You have to take out the roots,” he added. In the wake of the November 2015 Paris attacks, scholar Yousaf Butt stressed that “the fountainhead of Islamic extremism that promotes and legitimizes such violence lies with the fanatical ‘Wahhabi’ strain of Islam centered in Saudi Arabia.” “If the world wants to tamp down and eliminate such violent extremism, it must confront this primary host and facilitator,” Butt warned. In the past few decades, the Saudi regime has spent an estimated $100 billion exporting its extremist interpretation of Islam worldwide. It infuses its fundamentalist ideology in the ostensible charity work it performs, often targeting poor Muslim communities in countries like Pakistan or places like refugee camps, where uneducated, indigent, oppressed people are more susceptible to it. Whether elements within Saudi Arabia support ISIS is contested. Even if Saudi Arabia does not directly support or fund ISIS, however, Saudi Arabia gives legitimacy to the extremist ideology ISIS preaches. What is not contested, on the other hand, is that Saudi elites in the business community and even segments of the royal family support extremist groups like al-Qaida. U.S. government cables leaked by WikiLeaks admit “donors in Saudi Arabia constitute the most significant source of funding to Sunni terrorist groups worldwide.”

To paraphrase the immortal words of Larry the Cable Guy: THERE's our problem!!"

As I type this, I am watching a little clip of President Obama's trip to Saudi Arabia this week; and I am more than willing to bet that not a word was said about either domestic abuses of power, against internal Saudi critics, or the funding of violent Jihadists abroad.

When it comes to Saudi Arabia, the President has become the enabler-in-chief of a very inhumane regime and monarchy. Qorvis MSLGROUP, lying through its collective teeth, characterises the Saudi Government as "an ally in the war on terror" when, in fact, it is encouraging, and funding jihadists world-wide.

This CANNOT be allowed to stand.

Private Tests Show Cancer-Linked Herbicide in Breakfast Foods; FDA mum on Its Assessments

If you started your day off with a whole wheat bagel and a bowl of instant strawberries-and-cream-flavored oatmeal today, you might think you made some fairly healthy breakfast choices.

You might want to think again.

According to a report released Tuesday by the Alliance for Natural Health USA, testing procured from an independent laboratory found detectable levels of the herbicide glyphosate in oatmeal and bagels as well as coffee creamer and seven more products, for a total of 10 out of 24 breakfast food items showing levels of glyphosate - a chemical the World Health Organization’s cancer experts have linked to cancer.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The cumulative effect of glyphosate has a murderous effect on the human system; Monsanto executives, and executives of the other large manufacturers of this kind of product product, should be tried, and convicted, for crimes against humanity.

Erdogan’s war on media: Sputnik Turkey chief banned from entering Istanbul, told to fly to Russia

Russian news agency Sputnik’s Turkish bureau chief has been blacklisted by Ankara, who refused him entry to the country in an airport, and seized his residence permit and press credentials.

“I landed in Istanbul at 0:40 today with Aeroflot’s flight 2134. The border control staff held me at the passport control for some 10 minutes, then ushered me to the passenger control premises without explaining anything,” Sputnik’s Turkish bureau Chief Tural Kerimov told RT from the waiting room for passengers attending inspection and screening at Istanbul’s Ataturk Airport.

For those who wonder if such phenomena only happen to Republicans, Bernie Sanders can already “feel the spurn.” He won New Hampshire by a landslide (60 to 38 percent) only to discover that Hillary Clinton had been awarded the majority of delegates. This is because the Democratic Party has 717 “superdelegates” who support whomever they prefer, regardless of the wishes of voters or primary results.

Obama’s UK visit: The hostile reception for US president over Brexit vote ‘meddling’

Looks like Obama's Brit trip is going well.

US President Barack Obama arrives in the UK on Thursday to urge the British public to vote to ‘remain’ in the European Union in the June 23 Brexit referendum. Since the presidential visit was announced, however, critics have told him to “butt out.”
“This is an unwelcome interference from the most anti-British American president there has ever been. Mercifully, he won’t be in office for much longer,” Farage said.

Senior Tory ‘leave’ campaigners have been just as withering in their commentary, with US-born London Mayor Boris Johnson accusing Obama of “outrageous and exorbitant hypocrisy.”

QUEEN ELIZABETH TURNS 90, WITH $29 BILLION TO HER NAME

The U.K.’s Queen Elizabeth will ring in her 90th birthday on Thursday, and the monarch has every reason to celebrate. Not only has she already beaten the average U.K. life expectancy by nine years, she’s also among the top 25 richest people in the world. Just accounting for the tangible assets of the U.K. monarchy, the Queen sits on about £20 billion, or $28.8 billion, according to strategy consultancy Brand Finance. That is enough to put her 25th among the world’s richest on the Bloomberg Billionaire list, and ahead of high rollers such as investment guru George Soros, Microsoft MSFT, -0.55% CEO Steve Ballmer and Michael Dell.

Worse, his double-digit victory in Wisconsin on April 5 has failed to produce a perceivable polling bounce in key upcoming states.
