"The war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous. Hierarchal society is only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance. The war is waged by the ruling group against its own subjects and its objective is not over Eurasia or East Asia but to keep society intact." -- George Orwell From "1984"

Disney Inside Out Sadness doll slammed by father after it started expressing 'suicidal thoughts'

A horrified father has slammed Disney after a doll from its hit film Inside Out started expressing "suicidal thoughts".

Andrew Smith, 34, bought the talking doll - named Sadness - for his 11-year-old daughter Regan at a Disney store.

The £15.95 toy is part of a collection of five characters from the animated film, which will hit cinemas across the UK tomorrow.

But Andrew was shocked when he returned home and overheard the doll voicing "suicidal comments" when his daughter pressed its right hand, reports the Daily Record.

India: Farmer Suicides Reach Record Levels

Although the NCRB’s figures appear to show the number of suicides have halved since the same time last year, its methods were not the same. According to the Times of India, the government only took into account the landowners, instead of including all the rural workers. The Times writes that when these are included, the real figure shoots up to 12,360 suicides over the past year, almost 600 more than the previous year. In the most agrarian state in the country, Maharashtra, the record of suicides skyrocketed. The Hindu reports that over 10,000 were registered between 2012 and 2014. In this state, suicides do not only affect agriculture, but all sectors, with a total of 16,300 cases of people taking their own lives in 2014 alone, of 131,000 nationwide. The reforms to the Land Acquisition Bill included the removal of various requirements, like the social impact assessment study and a limitation on return of land to affected families.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What is not mentioned in this article is that farmers in India have lost their farms following the mandated use of BT Cotton, which turns out to be less resistant to the variations in Indian hydrology than the natural variety. The dangers of a single-crop economy are familiar to Indian farmers!

Manifest Disney

A native of Southern California, Fr. Seraphim saw nearby Disneyland as the most fitting analogy for the modern West and its leading state, America. No place better encapsulates a society of fakery, “fun,” and narcissism than the Magic Kingdom, itself the center of a media empire whose tentacles relentlessly manage market segments from infancy to adulthood, bombarding populations worldwide with weaponized “entertainment,” i.e. psychological warfare, subversion with a smile. And as America strives toward its destiny, realizing ever more perfectly the revolutionary principles of liberty and equality, so we witness Disneyland Civilization’s evolution into its fullest expression, the digital Gulag.

Gov’t Official: Chilling report from Pacific Ocean… “Silence on the seas” — “Quite literally, there isn’t any fish” — Japan Professor: Fukushima posing reproduction risk to marine life, ongoing concern over bio-accumulation of radioactive material

Senator Penelope Wright, Parliament of Australia, Mar 5, 2015 (emphasis added): “Like many others, I read an article in 2013 by Ivan Macfadyen called ‘The ocean is broken‘. It was published in The Sydney Morning Herald… He is an experienced sailor, so he had the ability to compare his experience then with… other trips. It was chilling. It was heartbreaking really. He had noticed changes in the last years. Basically, he was confronted by the silence that he heard, the silence on the seas, and he realised that this was attributable to the fact that they saw very, very few birds. They also caught very few fish… two fish.”

Study Finds Nearly All Scientific Papers Controlled By Six Corporations

When children grow up dreaming of becoming scientists they have the purest of aspirations and if they were left to pursue their own studies they would be able to accomplish the unimaginable. Unfortunately, to become a member of the scientific community one has to jump through many bureaucratic hoops until they are eventually inducted into an establishment which is tightly regulated and directed by warmongers and control freak aristocrats.

People spend half of their lives taking classes, passing tests and filling out applications in hopes that one day they can become a scientist and cure a disease. After years of struggling to make the cut they realize that there is no funding for their charitable projects and if they dare step outside of the established guidelines they will be exiled from the scientific community.

Republicans, pro-Israel groups step up campaign against Iran deal

Top Republicans vowed Wednesday to do their utmost to scrap President Barack Obama's nuclear deal with Iran as the biggest pro-Israel lobby prepared for an all-out campaign to pressure wary lawmakers into rejecting the agreement.

A bigger push against last week's historic accord in Vienna was being met with a counteroffensive by senior Obama administration officials, who have already spent hours on in-person and telephone briefings with members of Congress.

Secretary of State John Kerry, Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz and Treasury Secretary Jack Lew briefed the entire House of Representatives and Senate in separate closed-door sessions on Wednesday and will defend the deal at a public Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on Thursday.

Shock of Slow Decline: “Economic Conditions Substantially Worse Than During Last Crisis”

Did you know that the percentage of children in the United States that are living in poverty is actually significantly higher than it was back in 2008? When I write about an “economic collapse”, most people think of a collapse of the financial markets. And without a doubt, one is coming very shortly, but let us not neglect the long-term economic collapse that is already happening all around us.

No "Compensation" to Israel for Iran Deal

In The Joys of Yiddish, Leo Rosten defined chutzpah as "that quality enshrined in a man who, having killed his mother and father, throws himself on the mercy of the court because he is an orphan." Today we have a new paradigm for chutzpah: the Israeli government's demand for "compensation" from the American taxpayers for the Iran nuclear agreement.

Israel’s Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon told the Times of Israel that during U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter's visit the Israeli government would discuss “the compensation that Israel deserves in order to maintain its qualitative [military] edge” over Iran. The Obama administration of course is amenable.

Why does Israel deserve compensation (in addition to its $3 billion in U.S. aid every year)? If anything, Israel should compensate American taxpayers!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Whatever it is that did or did not happen in Germany before we were born, America was not to blame. Whatever it is that did or did not happen in Germany before we were born, America sacrificed much blood and treasure to stop. If Israel believed their own stories, one would think there would be some inkling of gratitude, perhaps an offer of compensation to all the families that lost their primary breadwinners on the battlefields of Europe. But Israel does not act like it has anything to be grateful for at all. Indeed their attitude is "We have decided that you did not do enough, that you did not spend enough, that not enough of you died in WW2, and therefore you are obligated to continue giving us money in perpetuity!" The US already gives way too much to Israel, having created a well-armed aggressor nation with an unshakeable sense of racial superiority, and didn't we already have enough of that in the aforesaid WW2? Worse, the current version of the "We are better than everyone else" club is armed with nuclear weapons! They don't need our help; they are just greedy!

Sandra Bland is Everyman

In the video we see and hear Bland being brutally attacked and arrested for expressing her opinion (after the arresting cop asked her for it), refusing to put out the cigarette she was smoking in her own car, or resisting arrest (let the nonsense of that excuse for an arrest settle in). After Bland is in handcuffs and other cops are present, you can even hear the cop who arrested her trying to work out, while on the phone with someone, a story to excuse his abuse of Bland.

As the cop escalated his physical attack, Bland yelled. Bland cursed. Bland insulted the policeman. She asked him repeatedly to give a logical justification, which never came, for his physical aggression against her.

From Kevin Cirilli and Bob Cusac writing at The Hill:

Donald Trump says the chances that he will launch a third-party White House run will “absolutely” increase if the Republican National Committee is unfair to him during the 2016 primary season.

“The RNC has not been supportive. They were always supportive when I was a contributor. I was their fair-haired boy,” the business mogul told The Hill in a 40-minute interview from his Manhattan office at Trump Tower on Wednesday. “The RNC has been, I think, very foolish.”

Trump is Correct, John McCain is NOT A Hero

First a bit of an introduction on the meaning of HERO…

The word hero in today’s world is far overused. “Hero” is so much overused it has diluted the value and real meaning and has cheapened the word for those who actually deserve the term.

McCain all by himself nearly sank a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier…

McCain, when a Lieutenant Commander in the U.S. Navy was a Navy pilot (they call themselves aviators). July 29, 1967 while on the deck and in his plane on the carrier U.S.S. Forrestal he managed to screw up procedures (officially denied and covered up by him and the Navy and also even promoted on Wikipedia if you care to look–reason to follow). He did a smart ass punk attention getting trick by doing a “wet start” up of his jet.

So important global commodities such as copper, iron ore, aluminum, zinc, nickel, lead, tin and lumber are all considered to be key “leading indicators” that can tell us a lot about where things are heading next. And what they are telling us right now is that we are rapidly approaching a global economic meltdown.

And the Gods finally answer! Heavens open in California as freak July rainfall pounds the drought-stricken state, extinguishing wildfires and boosting water levels

For years, Californians have been praying for rain - and now this.

New rainfall records were set over the weekend in southern and central California as thunderstorms and heavy showers drenched the Golden State during what is usually its driest month.

The downpours were welcomed by many, following four straight years of drought. But for others they caused chaos by sweeping away roads, collapsing bridges, closing beaches and disrupting power supplies - leaving tens of thousands of people without electricity.

Up to 6,000 supporters of Ukraine’s ultranationalist Right Sector movement gathered in central Kiev on Tuesday, calling on authorities to resign. The rally marks a “new stage of Ukrainian revolution,” the extremists' leader Dmitry Yarosh announced.

The radicals marched through the center of the Ukrainian capital on Tuesday evening, gathering on Maidan (Independence Square). The rally largely consisted of people wearing camouflage clothes, waving the red and black flags of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA). They were chanting “death to enemies,” TASS reported.

“Global Warming” Expedition Foiled by Record Ice

A scientific expedition to study “global warming” was delayed by record ice in the Arctic.

The icebreaker ship used for the 115-day expedition had to be rerouted Tuesday to break ice for commercial ships in the Hudson Bay because the ice conditions are the worst they’ve been in 20 years, according to the Canadian Coast Guard.

“Obviously it has a large impact on us,” said Martin Fortier, the executive director of the “global warming” research institute ArcticNet, which was spearheading the expedition.

The ice is so thick that ships are having to skirt around it.

I-10 at washed out bridge in California to reopen Friday

The main route connecting Los Angeles and Phoenix, which was closed when a surge of floodwater damaged several bridges spanning small desert gullies, is set to partially reopen Friday — far sooner than officials first estimated.

The California Department of Transportation had expected repairs on Interstate 10 to take weeks but announced Tuesday that it will be able to handle traffic again less than a week after the spans were damaged.

Travelers will still face delays, however, because just one lane will be open in each direction where one bridge collapsed.

The hardest hit bridges were over Tex Wash, a normally dry gully that filled with rainfall Sunday amid the kind of sudden, intense storm that can happen in the desert.

Far More Despicable Than Treason.

America is an occupied nation. Our soldiers die at the whim of our occupying powers. Our wealth is stolen. Our streets are occupied by millions of street thugs. Our government imports illegal drugs into the USA by the planeload which is sold at a profit. Then drug addicts rob us to pay for their addictions. Often those same planes that flew drugs into America are used to fly out children who were sold to wealthy pedophiles overseas.

The occupying power has been looting us. The Department of Defense has admitted that they spent $8.5 trillion that cannot be traced. I remember Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert saying that Dubai bank managers told them that American contractors from Iraq and Afghanistan made average deposits of $2.5 million in cash before rotating home.

A carefully planned, 115-day scientific expedition on board the floating research vessel, the CCGS Amundsen, has been derailed as the icebreaker was called to help resupply ships navigate heavy ice in Hudson Bay.

"Obviously it has a large impact on us," says Martin Fortier, executive director of ArcticNet, which coordinates research on the vessel. "It's a frustrating situation."

During the summer, the Amundsen operates as a floating research centre with experiments running 24 hours a day. This year it was scheduled to reach North Baffin Bay.

One Way to Handle the Crisis in US-Russia Relations

What we are witnessing is the rise of a new wave of the most dangerous arms race with totally unpredictable consequences.

At the moment it is unrealistic to expect a speedy improvement in US – Russia relations. This is to be regretted, but it is a fact: these relations have reached perhaps the lowest point and are even worse than during Soviet times – a really disturbing development.

The general public is aware that both nations are facing off on the political, economic, and informational fronts. However, they also confront each other in yet another area which is only followed by a narrow circle of experts, though it bears directly on the most important security issues facing the whole planet.

The reference is, of course, to major arms control treaties. These took many years and tremendous efforts to negotiate, and yet they now dissolve one after another.

The veteran, Don Rogers, is being hailed a hero by the gas station clerk for likely saving his life. “I wish the day could’ve went by without this happening,” said Rogers. “I just did what I had to do.”

“I heard somebody say “put the money in the bag”. So I looked up and I seen this gentleman holding a pistol on the clerk,” said Rogers. The firearm-carrying Rogers was scared, but he knew what he had to do. “And when I did, he looked over at me and turned my way and I fired a shot. And he grabbed his side and then I fired two more shots before he got out the door,” said Rogers.

On Monday evening, we noted that market participants are reducing the size of their trades and turning to derivatives in order to avoid the perils associated with what are increasingly illiquid markets.

While we’ve been pounding the table on bond market liquidity for years, the rest of the world (operating on the standard 2-3 year time lag) has just begun to wake up to how thin markets have become. Now, pundits, analysts, billionaire bankers, and incorrigible corporate raiders alike are shouting from the rooftops about the pitfalls of illiquidity. The secondary market for corporate credit has received the lion’s share of the attention (for reasons we outlined yesterday) and as Carl Icahn was at pains to explain to Larry Fink last week, ETFs are a large part of the problem.

McCain: Saudi Arms Deal With Russia Means Downturn in US-Saudi Relations

On the sidelines of the June 2015 St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, Russia and Saudi Arabia discussed plans for future arms deals. Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir told the press that nothing prevents Saudi Arabia from purchasing Russian defense systems.

“What they [Saudi Arabia] are telling us is that they think they have to go their own way, because they can no longer rely on us,” McCain said in a speech to the Hudson Institute.

Kyrgyzstan cancels cooperation treaty with US

Kyrgyzstan has cancelled a cooperation treaty with the US which has been in force since 1993. The move was prompted by a human right prize given by Washington to an activist serving life sentence for involvement in the killing of a police officer.

The bilateral agreement that helped facilitate cooperation between the countries in certain areas was ordered to be renounced by Kyrgyz Prime Minister Temir Sariev. With the document to become invalid, US aid to Kyrgyzstan brought into and out of the country will no longer be free of taxes and other custom duties starting from August 20.

US civil and military aid personnel, working in Kyrgyzstan will be deprived of their near diplomatic status, which they had been receiving under the agreement.

On Monday, the US warned Kyrgyzstan that if the accord got canceled, it would damage a range of its aid programs in the country.

Friends of Supreme Court: Justices repeatedly find for businesses related to their stocks

Three Supreme Court justices didn’t recuse themselves from cases in which they held stock in companies interested in the outcomes. Nearly 90 percent of the time, they sided with these businesses that filed ‘friend of the court’ briefs, a new report said.

Chief Justice John Roberts and Associate Justices Stephen Breyer and Samuel Alito own shares in several publicly traded companies, according to their 2014 financial disclosure reports. From July 2014 through June 2015, seven cases before the Supreme Court featured amicus curiae ? or friend of the court ? briefs by companies in which the three justices were stockholders. These filings allow parties that will be affected by a ruling, but are not directly involved in a case, to introduce “relevant matter not already brought to [the Court’s] attention,” the Supreme Court rules read.

Fake Cancer Doctor in Richmond Prescribed $2,000 Bags of Dirt, Expired Drugs to Dying Patients

We already live in a country where cancer rates are one in two for men and one in three for women. Now people are preying on that sad fact like a cancer themselves.

However, this story is also a sad testament to the fact that people no longer believe in the highly expensive scam of chemotherapy drugs and are desperate to find other options in a country with a long history of suppressing cures for profits.

POW case haunts McCain's image as war hero

Though he immediately backtracked, presidential candidate Donald Trump reopened the controversy over Sen. John McCain’s service during the Vietnam War and his subsequent handling of the post-war POW issue by questioning whether the Arizona Republican should be regarded as a hero.

McCain, whose father and grandfather were four-star Navy admirals, has been commended throughout his career in the Senate for enduring five-and-a-half years in the infamous “Hanoi Hilton” prison in North Vietnam.

But various critics, including Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist Sydney H. Schanberg, have charged that McCain, working with fellow Vietnam veteran and then-Sen. John F. Kerry, D-Mass., suppressed information about POWs believed to have been left behind by the U.S. government at the end of the Vietnam War.

New Jersey doubles state allocation for Holocaust survivors

New Jersey has doubled the allocations in its state budget for Holocaust survivors.

The state’s Jewish Family Service agencies will receive $400,000 in the new fiscal year to serve Holocaust survivors as part of a “Grants in Aid” allocation, the New Jersey Jewish News reported.

The allocation announced earlier this month brings the three-year total to $1 million in state funding for services to New Jersey’s 4,700 Holocaust survivors, according to the newspaper.

The additional funding will provide survivors with 11,000 hours of home care service, 3,000 meals, and 1,500 hours of case work and social service needs management, according to the New Jersey Jewish News.

Dashcam Video of Violent Arrest of Sandra Bland Was Edited

he dashcam video released to the public of the violent arrest of Sandra Bland was edited.

Bland was a 28-year-old Black Lives Matter civil rights activist and vocal critic of police brutality who died in police custody after a Texas officer pulled her over for a traffic violation, ordered her out of her car when she refused to put out her cigarette, and aggressively arrested her. Police say Bland committed suicide, yet the Waller County prosecutor says Bland’s case is “being treated just as it would be a murder investigation.”

The Texas Department of Public Safety uploaded dashcam police video of the arrest to YouTube on 21 July. Parts of the approximately 52 minutes of footage it uploaded have clearly been doctored.

7 Secret CIA Operations You Were Never Supposed to Hear About

"Can we get control of an individual to the point where he will do our bidding against his will and even against fundamental laws of nature, such as self-preservation?"

That's from a real 1952 CIA memo. The man who wrote it was presumably a bald, grinning scientist with a vaguely European accent, a personal shark tank, and a loyal pet cat.

Most of the time, we suspect our government is protecting us, but every now and then, we discover that our tax dollars have helped fund some truly bizarre and f*cked up programs. When the smoke has cleared and the documents have been declassified, we see that the history of the CIA has more in common with science fiction than we could possibly imagine.

Israeli-occupied US Congress seeks war with Iran: Analyst

The Zionist lobby in the United States is using its tremendous influence in Congress to place Israel’s interest ahead of America’s, including launching more conflicts in the Middle East and trying to derail any nuclear agreement with Iran, a political commentator in Los Angeles says.

“You’ve got an Israeli-occupied US Congress that had pushed for the Iraq war for Israel,” said James Morris, editor of America-hijacked.com, a blog charting the influence of the Jewish lobby.

“And those same Israel-first Jewish neoconservative want a war with Iran and the way they think they can get that done is by derailing the Iran deal with their proxies in the US Congress,” Morris told Press TV on Wednesday.

“They’re nothing but traitors to America, pushing another war for Israel vs. Iran like they did with Iraq,” he added.

Israeli media drowns out pro-Iran-deal voices

The widespread Israeli media coverage of the nuclear agreement between six world powers and Iran was accompanied by bitter cries of politicians from right and left alike who described the deal as a national disaster. This overpowered the important voices of those who argued that the agreement would actually improve Israel’s position, and not the reverse.

I decided to get to the bottom of this important development, so I got in touch with Rube Joshner at the USCEIO, who agreed to be interviewed on condition of anonymity.

Israeli college in East Jerusalem bags $15 million of EU funds

The “earthquake” claim was made by an unnamed official who was widely quoted in the press. The official had voiced displeasure at new EU “guidelines” stating that the Union would not award subsidies to Israeli firms or institutions based in the occupied West Bank (including East Jerusalem).

I was skeptical of these guidelines. While Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu depicted them as an existential threat to Israel, my feeling was that they did little more than reiterate the EU’s official policies.

Because they did not seem to be accompanied by a proper monitoring system, I also felt that it would be easy for Israeli institutions or companies active in the West Bank to circumvent them.

The latest available data on Horizon 2020, the EU’s scientific research program, proves that my skepticism was well-founded.

Israel exploits Syrian chaos to plan looting of Golan oil

The Afek oil and gas exploration company has almost completed its second drilling test in the Golan Heights, a part of Syria which Israel has occupied since 1967 and annexed in violation of international law.

The test is part of a three-year program to see if hydrocarbons in the area could lead to oil or gas for Israel.

Israel is fuel-poor and its domestic energy woes could be eased in the interim if the government progresses on deals in relation to the Tamar and Leviathan gas fields in the Mediterranean Sea.

Child Sex Trafficking through Child “Protection” Services Exposed – Kidnapping Children for Sex

Children have been sold, and there have been cases, where children have been sold up to 75 times in one day. 75 times in one day…. someone has abused this child.

The child trafficking industry, or human trafficking industry right now, makes more money than the illegal drug trade, and illegal arms trade, combined.

So children are definitely a commodity. They are a commodity to make money.

LifeLock's stock value cut in half on FTC accusation of settlement breach, deceptive claims

The FTC said LifeLock violated a 2010 settlement with the agency and 35 states by continuing to make deceptive claims about its services and failing to take steps to protect users' data. The FTC has asked the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona to impose an order requiring the company to provide redress to consumers.

In the previous settlement, the FTC settlement required the company to pay $12 million in consumer refunds.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I will tell you how to cut the identify theft problem in half. Find just one of these cyber-criminals, and crucify them live on national TV. If they are reasonable healthy it should take them at least a week to die. That will end half the identify theft problem. Then, when we fire the NSA, that will get rid of the other half!
