Cops Impersonating Panhandlers in Massive Revenue Generation Scheme

Well well, it seems the bangers in blue have a new twist on an old tactic. The next time you come up to a stop light, and panhandlers are around, you might want to double-check your seatbelt and put your phone down. Cops are impersonating homeless people, to entrap you, and extort money from you for violating their sacred edicts passed down by the benevolent overlords.

Rand Paul Declares War on ISIS—and Allows Boots on the Ground

The Kentucky senator, seeking to define himself as a foreign-policy heavyweight ahead of 2016, will introduce a measure in the Senate next month declaring war on the terror group.

“The most important” part of Rand Paul’s assessment of “questions of war,” the Kentucky senator told The Daily Beast this fall, is “how you go to war.” Now he’s putting that assessment into action with a plan to introduce a declaration of war against ISIS in the Senate next month.

Letter to a Historian over Foster and the Clintons

Dear Professor Leuchtenburg:

I have heard nothing from D.G. and am proceeding upon the assumption that you are of the generation that has nothing to do with computers. That might also explain why you are so misinformed about the death of Vincent Foster. It is no excuse for writing about the matter based upon that misinformation, however.

'Crisis' hit Zimbabwe wants white farmers back – report

Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe's government has reportedly indicated, for the first time, that it may hand back land to some white farmers whose farms were forcibly taken away from them during the height of the country’s controversial land reform programme.

This comes a decade and a half after the Zimbabwean government seized large swaths of land from white farmers in the country - a move that saw a drastic deterioration in the country's economy.

According to The Telegraph, Minister of Lands Douglas Mombeshora said provincial leaders had been tasked to come up with names of white farmers they wanted to remain on their farms. The farms should be "of strategic economic importance".

"We have asked provinces to give us the names of white farmers they want to remain on farms so that we can give them security of tenure documents to enable them to plan their operations properly," Mombeshora was quoted as saying.

Compensation process

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Successful agriculture is not just achieved with luck; it is achieved through science and education.

Zimbabwe, formerly Rhodesia, used to be the breadbasket of Africa.

I have to wonder how many former farm owners will actually return; I would doubt it will be many, after having been kicked off their farms.

The government of Zimbabwe might well want to consider hiring agricultural specialists, who focus on food crop production, to teach the people who have the land how to get decent yields, and for the government to buy the tools necessary, to bring organic, sustainable methods to the process of farming in this country.

People around the world are paying a pretty penny these days for non-GMO crops; perhaps not a bad idea, in terms of the Zimbabwean government's long term agricultural focus.

Royal descendants want Romanovs’ killer’s name erased from Moscow map

Representatives of the Russian Imperial House say that the renaming could be done on the anniversary of the killing, which happened in the early hours of July 17, 1918. The station in question is currently called Voikovskaya – After Pyotr Voikov who worked in the Bolshevik “Extraordinary Commission” security service and was in charge of first keeping the Romanovs under house arrest and later of their execution and body disposal. The Romanovs also want the city authorities to rename the whole Voikovsky district in Moscow for the same reasons.

More Than 2,800 People Are Dead in Yemen, So Why Is the Media Silent?

In the summer of 2014, our screens were inundated with videos of the carnage from the streets of Gaza. The European media was outraged, and the sense of moral urgency was amplified across social media. Similar outrage greeted the destruction of UNESCO heritage sites in both Iraq and Syria with the condemnation of Islamic State's barbarism reaching a crescendo when it overtook Syria's majestic city of Palmyra.

Compare this coverage to the almost universal silence on the ongoing war in Yemen, which is largely absent from our TV screens, Facebook and Twitter trending topics sections and the front pages of broadsheet papers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The cause of this can be laid squarely at the feet of abysmal US foreign policy failure in this country.

Pop quiz; in the last election here, how many names were on the ballot?!?

Only one: that of Al-Hadi, a replacement US puppet from the Al-Selah, the US puppet who got run out of town on a rail.

And since al-Hadi has been in office, how have the conditions for the Yemenite people improved?!?

Not one bit. And the late President Kennedy said this best: "When peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution is inevitable."

This is precisely what we are witnessing in Yemen right now.

and the Saudis are being used by the US as their proxy military here.

Notice that houses, schools, hospitals have been shelled; this collective punishment is a war crime, under international law.

But it appears here that the US, by enabling its Saudi ally, is attempting to use collective punishment against the Yemenite people to force them to take back their former leader, who has provided neither leadership nor hope.

The Yemenite people deserve a chance to chart their own destiny; but of course, the US government will not allow that to happen.

We are in for a very long war here, and Isis, the result of failed US government policy, or perhaps a US asset, is being made to be the "bad guy".

US government's collective punishment appears to include the destruction of those world heritage sites in Yemen which are part of the history of these people.

when you take away a country's history, you also take away its future.

End The Jewish Occupation Of The Solidarity Movement

Ten days ago, we learned that the Israeli Government has actually recruited left organisations to cleanse the Solidarity movement of its ‘radicals’ –those who dare to tell the truth about the Jewish State and the culture and ideology that drive its politics. EOIO seems to be exceedingly enthusiastic about its role as dictated by its Jerusalem masters. Following JVP’s AKA Jewish Voice Police campaign against Alison Weir, the EOIO has now published its complete list of ‘accusations’ against Ms. Weir. Alison Weir is a dedicated, articulate pro Palestinian American patriot and the founder of the very informative outlet, If Americans Knew.

DM: Israel Expects Significant US ‘Compensation’ After Iran Pact

The latest in a long line of Israeli officials railing about the P5+1 nuclear deal with Iran, Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon talked up the idea that it posed a major threat to Israel, and meant the nation has to prepare a military option against Iran, as though Israel hasn’t been doing that for decades.

More importantly, Ya’alon become the first Israeli official to publicly talk about the actual end-game in all of this for Israel, a massive “compensation” package by the US government to Israel to placate them after the Iran deal.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to Israeli Defense Minister Ya'alon: the American people have gotten extraordinarily tired of the demands, bullying, and blackmail the American government has received from the fully nuclear armed, viciously apartheid, theocracy which is what Israel has become in the 21st century.

And we have one word for you: enough!!

We will provide you no more American military to get slaughtered or maimed for life in the process of "neutralizing" all your alleged existential threats in the Middle East. And of course, as we both know, that includes all of your neighbors in the region.

And on top of that, sir, we would appreciate it greatly if the US government immediately pull all financial and military aid from your country immediately, as all this aid is completely illegal under the Symington Amendment.

We the people would like to see this accomplished and immediately, sir. The days of the host/parasite relationship between the Us government and that of Israel may well be coming to a very abrupt halt, and it is damn well about time, sir!!!

Russia plans to ship fuel from Crimea to Syria

Russia plans to supply Syria with 200,000 tons of liquefied petroleum gas per year via the Crimean port of Kerch, two trading sources told Reuters.

The plans are a further sign of cooperation between the two countries despite hopes in the West that Russia might stop shielding President Bashar al-Assad from pressure to step aside.

Moscow had been shipping significantly lower volumes of LPG to Syria via Kerch before Russia annexed the Crimea peninsula from Ukraine in March 2014.

The United States and the European Union, which say the seizure of Crimea violates international law, have imposed sanctions on individuals and business in Crimea, which include restrictions on use of the Kerch port.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is interesting that no one at Reuters wanted to sign their name to this piece of codswallop.

Would someone please send Reuters a message, please that the "Big Lie" no longer works, and whatever credibility this alleged new organisation ever had, has now been well and truly flushed?!?

Russia did not annex Crimea.

After a US/NATO/ECB Putsch against the previous government last year, and the illegal installation of Poroshenko was accomplished, Crimea found itself without a legitimate government.

At that point, Crimea, which had been historically a part of Russia, until it was annexed by Kruschiev in the 50's, decided to request to become a part of the Russian Federation, in a free and fair election, witnessed by international observers. Russia accepted this referendum, and Crimea was again part of Russia, through the will of the Crimean people; not an annexation by Russia.

Russia has done nothing wrong, and the world knows this.

The US government narrative on Crimea is an absolute piece of fabrication, to goad Russia into a military conflict and thinking Americans have come to the place where they know they cannot trust anything the Us government says...except, occasionally about the weather; sometimes, they do get actually that right.

Krauthammer: Talking about Trump is 'a complete waste of time'

Charles Krauthammer told viewers Wednesday on “Special Report with Bret Baier” that talking about 2016 GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump is a “complete waste of time.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Trump has become a real danger to not just the GOP (where he is leading in the polls) but to the political status quo as a whole.Trump is willing to talk about the real problems confronting this nation, rather than hide behind the contrived fringe issue that have become a permanent feature of every election year, gay marriage, women's rights, race relations, and (this year) the Confederate flag) used as distractions by candidates not wishing to talk about that which truly affects all of our lives, the crashing economy, the mired wars of conquest, a capital city more interested in what Israel wants than what the American people want, and the problems which have arrived along with a flood of illegal immigrants. Unfazed by the label of "politically incorrect", Trump has voiced what many Americans already know. A large number of the illegals are criminals in their own countries fleeing prosecution, members of MS-13, carrying drugs, infected with contagious illnesses, and already committing crimes in the US way out of proportion to their percentage of the population. 75% of Federal Drug arrests right now involve illegals. Mexico is taking advantage of the open borders to get rid of its least desirable citizens and is hardly the first government to do so. When the US opened its borders to Cuban refugees in the 1980s, Castro emptied his prisons, put them all on boats headed north, and Florida has suffered from the resulting crime wave ever since!

Trump refuses to live in the politically correct fantasy world of the political class. That is why people like him. He is operating in the real world, something career politicians never do, which is why all people like Charles Krauthammer can do is blubber how unimportant Trump is and try to ignore him. But Trump is important because he is stirring the pot, and forcing the career politicians to deal with real issues of concern to the American people, such as the crashing economy, the mired wars of conquest, and Congress' obeisance to a foreign power.

I have no expectations Trump will win. Already we see the corporate media and the party apparatchiks moving to eject him as they did Ron Paul in 2008 and 2012. Failing that, I would not rule out the "Robert Kennedy option" to keep Trump from spoiling the little party Wall Street and Washington DC have had going all this time.

But Trump is a refreshing breath of truth in a long-simmering sea of political bovine excrement, and for that reason I wish him success.

Why President Hillary Clinton WOULD Go To War With Iran

Clinton started out innocently enough, saying: ‘Based on the briefings I received and a review of the documents, I support the agreement because it can help us prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon’. Continuing, she said that the ‘agreement can make the United States, Israel and our Arab partners safer’.

She then went on to say that ‘the message to Iran should be loud and clear: we will never allow you to acquire a nuclear weapon; not just during the term of this agreement – never’. Why exactly does she believe the United States should be directing the internal affairs of a sovereign country?

Then, she really went off the deep end:

‘Signing is just the beginning. As president I would use every tool in our arsenal to compel rigorous Iranian compliance.’

‘Just the beginning’?!

Obama Is Sending Military-Grade Spy Gear To Egypt. What Could Go Wrong?

President Barack Obama's State Department has approved the sale to Egypt of a sophisticated, military-grade mobile surveillance system that experts and activists fear Cairo's authoritarian regime will use against the country's citizens.

The State Department says that Egypt will only use the system on the Egyptian border with war-torn Libya, where a branch of the Islamic State group is mushrooming. But the current Egyptian government sees domestic critics as existential threats at least on par with the extremist group.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

President Obama knows precisely what the Al-Sisi government will do with this equipment.

As reported in US NEWS on 25 July, 2016:

The death sentences issued June 16 against former Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi and 90 Muslim Brotherhood members raised the concerns of political parties on the continued violence in the Sinai Peninsula, with the possibility of this violence expanding across Egypt. The Associated Press RELATED Egypt Court Confirms Ousted President Morsi's Death Sentence A sheikh from the Sawarka tribe, one of the largest tribes in Sinai, told Al-Monitor on condition of anonymity that Morsi’s death sentence will adversely affect Sinai. He said that the innocent people of Sinai will pay the price of the continued power struggle between the Egyptian army and the Brotherhood. According to the sheikh, the death sentences will translate into armed violence in Sinai.

IF the above is, in fact, likely as these death sentences are carried out (and with 106 to be executed - that will almost have to be done by rotating firing squads with prisoners lined up in shackles, and the corpses dragged away en masse), this equipment will most likely mean more arrests, more executions...and more violence against the sitting government of Egypt.

This action on the part of the US government, demonstrates yet more incontrovertible proof that one of the most crucial criteria for getting hired by this Administration is the pathological inability to think any scenario through to its logical conclusion.

GOOGLE GMAIL ATE MY LINUX: Gobbled email enrages Torvalds

Linux kernel supremo Linus Torvalds has published a scathing open letter to Google's Gmail team after discovering that the service had incorrectly marked hundreds of his incoming email threads as spam – including ones containing kernel patches.

"Something you did recently has been an unmitigated disaster," Torvalds wrote in post to his Google+ page on Friday. In a later update to his post, he added that after going over some 3,000 email threads in his spam box, he had to manually mark 1,190 threads as "not spam."

Finnish-American firebrand Torvalds pretty much coordinates Linux kernel development entirely via email to and from his herd of developers, so losing messages is a disaster for him.

“BANK LIVES MATTER” – OBAMA ADMINISTRATION MAKES ANOTHER MOVE TO PROTECT PROFITS OF CRIMINAL MEGA BANKS

Three top Democrats are accusing the Department of Housing and Urban Development of quietly removing a key clause in its requirements for taxpayer-guaranteed mortgage insurance in order to spare two banks recently convicted of federal crimes from being frozen out of the lucrative market.

HUD’s action is the latest in a series of steps by federal agencies to eliminate real-world consequences for serial financial felons, even as the Obama administration has touted its efforts to hold banks accountable.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is utterly no accountability in the US government, at any level, whatsoever; what we have is a toxic, incestuous relationship between large corporations, and the politicians they buy. It is just that simple.

We are no more a government "of the people, by the people and for the people; this country has devolved to a government "of the corporations, by the corporations, and for the corporations.

FEDERAL RESERVE CHIEF YELLEN SAYS CONGRESSIONAL OVERSIGHT WOULD HURT ECONOMY

House Republicans want to impose greater oversight over the Federal Reserve, moves that the central bank’s top official claims would damage the U.S. economy.

Fed Chairwoman Janet Yellen testified before Congress this week as part of a semiannual appearance with lawmakers. She used part of her time before the House Financial Services Committee to speak out against legislative proposals to expand congressional review of the Fed’s decision-making.

“Efforts to further increase transparency, no matter how well intentioned, must avoid unintended consequences that could undermine the Federal Reserve’s ability to make policy in the long-run best interest of American families and businesses,” Yellen said

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A memo to Chairwoman Yellen: your policies, including tacit approval of the off-shoring/outsourcing of American jobs by multinational corporations, has destroyed American manufacturing, and with it, American lives.

Corporations love this process, shopping jobs to the cheapest labor pools they can find; but what happens to those Americans who are now without jobs due to that process?!?

Chairwoman Yellen, what happens, when people lose those jobs is a downward spiral to absolute hopelessness and helplessness. People lose their homes; their credit; and potentially health care; their access to school for their kids may well be in peril also.

But of course, as the representative of a huge private central bank, masquerading, badly, as an arm of US government (and we all know, the Fed is no more "Federal" than is the shipping company Federal Express), people do not matter to you or your colleagues; only profit.

I would, therefore, strongly encourage the Federal government to disband the Federal Reserve, and create money, as it is Constitutionally empowered to do, as a public utility, and not as a loan at interest.

TO PASS TPP, U.S. STATE DEPT. UPGRADES MALAYSIA’S HUMAN TRAFFICKING RANKING DESPITE DISCOVERY OF MASS GRAVES

Earlier this week, we wrote about a troubling move by the US State Department to “upgrade” Malaysia from a “tier 3? country to a “tier 2? country regarding human trafficking. This move came despite a near total lack of evidence of any improvement by Malaysia. In fact, just two months ago 139 mass graves were discovered for migrant workers who had been trafficked and/or held for ransom. And the US ambassador to Malaysia had publicly criticized the country for failing to tackle its massive human trafficking problem.

OK, folks, it's official; when it comes to slave labor and human trafficking, this Administration has the morals...of a trout!!

GREEK BANKS WILL NOT RE-OPEN MONDAY EVEN AS LOAN TO REPAY ECB APPROVED

The timing could not be worse from a visual perspective but within minutes of the Eurogroup confirming that they approved the €7.16 billion bridge loan (which will merely be recycled back to The ECB to ensure the appearance of normalcy continues), local reports note that the Greek finance ministry says banks will not re-open on Monday (as promised).

The elites get their money...

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Monday may well see massive unrest in the major cities in Greece.

And if there is unrest, it would not be beyond the IMF and European creditors to hire one of the private, global mercenary armies to put that unrest down, with extreme prejudice.

This tactic is certainly not new to the IMF. As reported at http://www.aloha.net/~stroble/mercs.html in 1997, regarding a hydra-headed corporate entity called "Executive Outcomes" or EO, for short:

Salaries for EO hires range anywhere from $2000-$13,000 per month depending on the worker's experience and area of expertise. Contract military instructors receive approximately $2500 each month, while pilots receive closer to $7,000 each month.(86) These salaries often quadruple the amount that can be earned in the most prestigious government armies of Africa. In addition to a high income, EO provides life insurance for its workers.(87) In Sierra Leone, International Monetary Fund (IMF) money was used to finance EO's contract fee. Western powers supported the IMF initiative, remembering the long protracted war in Liberia and its devastating effect on the economy.(88) EO and its affiliated companies reportedly reaped further financial benefits from the contracted diamond mining concessions.(89) The Kono diamond fields yield approximately $300 million dollars in diamonds annually.(90) One report asserts that, in total, EO reportedly acquired payments valued at around $100 million dollars for their services of less than a year.(91) EO's annual revenues are reportedly between $25 million and $40 million dollars.(92) According to EO its revenue for the last four years was $55 million (U.S. dollars).(93)

I would not be willing to bet against the IMF having relationships with multiple private mercenary armies of this kind.

The government, having capitulated fully, has completely lost the trust of the Greek people.

And were I a betting person, if there is massive unrest in Greece next week, you can trust that the whorespondents and presstitutes in the US have been given their marching orders by their producers to focus on ABG (anything but Greece!!)

Update: according to an article in Bloomberg.com:

Greek banks will reopen on Monday as Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras rebuilds his government to shore up support for a bailout agreed with the country’s creditors. The banks, which have remained closed since June 29, will open July 20, the government said on Saturday. Most capital controls concerning withdrawals and money transfers will remain, and while the daily limit was held at 60 euros ($65), a cumulative limit of 420 euros a week was set, it said. Lenders will reopen a week after Tsipras and creditors agreed to a bailout program and Greek lawmakers approved legislation needed to release funding for the country. Hours after the vote, the European Central Bank approved emergency financing for the country’s lenders and the European Union finalized a bridge loan on Friday to provide a stop-gap until a full three-year rescue program, worth as much as 86 billion euros, is settled.

Guess this will all be sorted, one way or the other, by Monday morning in Greece.

How bad are things for the people of Greece?

Faced with the prospect of dwindling incomes or unemployment, many Greeks have been forced to look for work elsewhere. In the last five years, Greece's population has declined, falling by about 400,000.

A 2013 study found that more than 120,000 professionals, including doctors, engineers and scientists, had left Greece since the start of the crisis in 2010.

A more recent European University Institute survey found that of those who emigrated, nine in 10 hold a university degree and more than 60% of those have a master's degree, while 11% hold a PhD.

FBI TRACKED CHATTANOOGA SHOOTER'S FAMILY FOR YEARS

Once again, another convenient shooting has helped supercharge anger, hatred, fear, and division across the Western World after an alleged "Islamist extremist" opened fire on and killed 4 US Marines at a recruiting station in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Without any knowledge of how the US has in fact created Al Qaeda and its many global affiliates, including vicious terrorist groups plaguing Southeast Asia, and the most notorious to date, the so-called "Islamic State" (ISIS), the American public will predictably react in a manner that will simply further justify America's meddling across the globe amid its self-created and perpetuated "War on Terror." It will also help in efforts to further tighten control over the American public itself, with increased justifications for expanding police state measures and future pushes to disarm the American people.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If, in fact, the FBI has been tracking this family for years, why were they unable to prevent the tragedy in Chattanooga last week?!?

Either this agency, charged with protecting Americans, is the most sloppy, pathetically incapable bunch of people ever to work for this agency, who should be collectively and immediately fired en masse, or...there was some kind of foreknowledge, and this horrific act was allowed to happen.

And unfortunately, this wouldn't be the first time something like this happened.

As reported at firstlook.org in January of this year:

he Justice Department on Wednesday issued a press release trumpeting its latest success in disrupting a domestic terrorism plot, announcing that “the Joint Terrorism Task Force has arrested a Cincinnati-area man for a plot to attack the U.S. Capitol and kill government officials.” The alleged would-be terrorist is 20-year-old Christopher Cornell (above), who is unemployed, lives at home, spends most of his time playing video games in his bedroom, still addresses his mother as “Mommy” and regards his cat as his best friend; he was described as “a typical student” and “quiet but not overly reserved” by the principal of the local high school he graduated in 2012. The affidavit filed by an FBI investigative agent alleges Cornell had “posted comments and information supportive of [ISIS] through Twitter accounts.” The FBI learned about Cornell from an unnamed informant who, as the FBI put it, “began cooperating with the FBI in order to obtain favorable treatment with respect to his criminal exposure on an unrelated case.” Acting under the FBI’s direction, the informant arranged two in-person meetings with Cornell where they allegedly discussed an attack on the Capitol, and the FBI says it arrested Cornell to prevent him from carrying out the attack. he known facts from this latest case seem to fit well within a now-familiar FBI pattern whereby the agency does not disrupt planned domestic terror attacks but rather creates them, then publicly praises itself for stopping its own plots. First, they target a Muslim: not due to any evidence of intent or capability to engage in terrorism, but rather for the “radical” political views he expresses. In most cases, the Muslim targeted by the FBI is a very young (late teens, early 20s), adrift, unemployed loner who has shown no signs of mastering basic life functions, let alone carrying out a serious terror attack, and has no known involvement with actual terrorist groups

Sorry, folks: but if the FBI was allegedly following this family for years, there is no middle ground possible here whatsoever.

And the other question that nags me is, rather than shoot to kill, would it not have been more logical to shoot to wound, so that this man could be interrogated, to find out if he was a "lone wolf", or part of a larger organization?!?

It almost appears that the people in control of the situation did not want the public to know anything which would disturb the official narrative here; and I find that very troubling as well.

How Britian covered up the friendship between Hitler & Edward VIII

History has romanticized Edward VIII as the king of hearts, the man who gave up the throne for the love of an American divorcee, Wallis Simpson. But the truth is far darker, says author Andrew Morton, Princess Diana’s official biographer. In his new book, “17 Carnations: The Royals, the Nazis and the Biggest Cover-Up in History,” Morton unveils how Edward VIII openly sympathized with the Nazis — a fact the British leadership desperately attempted to hide.

Greece’s Lesson For Russia

Greece’s lesson for Russia, and for China and Iran, is to avoid all financial relationships with the West. The West simply cannot be trusted. Washington is committed to economic and political hegemony over every other country and uses the Western financial system for asset freezes, confiscations, and sanctions. Countries that have independent foreign policies and also have assets in the West cannot expect Washington to respect their property rights or their ownership. Washington freezes or steals countries’ assets, or in the case of France imposes multi-billion dollar fines, in order to force compliance with Washington’s policies. Iran, for example, lost the use of $100 billion, approximately one-fourth of the Iranian GDP, for years simply because Iran insisted on its rights under the Non-Proliferation Treaty.

We Are All Greeks Now

The poor and the working class in the United States know what it is to be Greek. They know underemployment and unemployment. They know life without a pension. They know existence on a few dollars a day. They know gas and electricity being turned off because of unpaid bills. They know the crippling weight of debt. They know being sick and unable to afford medical care. They know the state seizing their meager assets, a process known in the United States as “civil asset forfeiture,” which has permitted American police agencies to confiscate more than $3 billion in cash and property. They know the profound despair and abandonment that come when schools, libraries, neighborhood health clinics, day care services, roads, bridges, public buildings and assistance programs are neglected or closed. They know the financial elites’ hijacking of democratic institutions to impose widespread misery in the name of austerity. They, like the Greeks, know what it is to be abandoned.

Late on Thursday, July 16th, German Economic News headlined “Greece: Debt Restructuring Through the Back Door,” and reported that, “The majority of Greece’s national debt is to be moved in the next three years gradually to the euro bailout fund ESM [European Stability Mechanism], so that the IMF will continue to remain as a lender. The euro zone countries will thereby provide Athens a longer grace period [a temporary postponement of payments, while the 18% annual interest-rate soars Greece’s debt even higher], and longer repayment periods.”

New Horizons: Why bother exploring the Solar System?

So, I wondered, what would we have thought if Christopher Columbus or Captain Cook had spotted an unmapped coastline but turned away with a look of indifference and had not bothered to land?

To them, the lure of exotic new sights and undiscovered realms proved overwhelming. And nothing has changed.

The long trek to the edge of the Solar System paid off by producing staggering glimpses of alien worlds. When we all first saw the giant mountains of ice on Pluto and vast canyons on Charon, it took the breath away. And the images caught the imagination around the world.

The most powerful answer to the question "why bother?" may be the simplest: the thrill of witnessing discovery is its own reward.

NZ Government's fingers in the wrong pie

This week the big news has been an inescapable revelation that a hands-off approach to foreign investment in our residential property market has had the predictable result of amplifying inequality.

In this case, the wealthy of Auckland are able to sell their properties to the wealthy of other countries - a cycle that has inevitably locked people in the largely low-wage New Zealand economy right out of the picture.

For those of us who believe one of the Government's primary roles is to ensure its citizens are able to access reasonably priced, warm and safe housing, this has been a monumental fail. But the evidence has been there all along, although rather less visible. State housing is now the focal point of a brand new experimental process that may or may not manage to house the most needy in the city. Meanwhile, some live in garages and mobile lockers with little to no heating.

Appeal Court orders Attorney-General to issue new directions on sending Dotcom's devices to US

The Court of Appeal has ordered the Attorney-General to issue new directions to the New Zealand police in order to send cloned devices seized from internet entrepreneur Kim Dotcom to US authorities, although it's likely to be opposed by the internet entrepreneur.

In a decision released today, Justices Douglas White, Tony Randerson and Lynton Stevens set aside earlier High Court rulings, essentially allowing the Attorney-General to issue new directives to police under the Mutual Assistance in Criminal Matters Act, enabling the remaining seized devices be sent to the US.

Dotcom and his co-accused Finn Batato, Mathias Ortmann and Bram van der Kolk can then challenge the move in a new judicial review in the High Court if they wish.

Inquiry needed into police search and seizure conduct (NZ)

This week the High Court at Wellington has been hearing a challenge to the lawfulness of the police's conduct in procuring a search warrant and then conducting a search of Nicky Hager's house.

The allegation (as yet unproven) is that police misled the judge who issued the warrant, breached Hager's rights during the search, and then breached undertakings about what they would do with any items seized during the search.

The outcome is still to be determined, but it seems to be the latest example in a rising tide of cases in which the police and Crown prosecutors have been challenged in respect of the execution of search warrants and the conduct of criminal investigations and prosecutions.

Other high-profile examples include the Red Devils case in Nelson, the John Banks case and the Kim Dotcom raid. In each of those cases, the courts have been critical of the conduct of police or prosecutors, to varying extents.

Drone rage puts stomper in court

A stoush over a drone came to a head in a quiet reserve leaving one man in the dock and another's flying craft in tatters.

Aaron Wagstaff was flying his drone in Waikanae on Monday. He paid $1700 for the 30cm-square "Phantom 3" remote-controlled craft to take scenic shots.

After it landed, Simon Done walked over and stomped on it with his right foot, smashing it. He says he was standing up for people's privacy but Mr Wagstaff wasn't convinced.

"I'm not sure why he did it," Mr Wagstaff said yesterday.

"I was just flying it over the river and there was a family watching and asking me questions and then I landed it and he said something about, 'don't you know you're not allowed to fly within 150m of someone'.

"I was picking it up and he came along and stomped on it. I still can't believe it happened to be honest. It was just completely out of the blue."

The end of FoI? 'Right to know' in peril as Government targets Freedom of Information

The Government’s decision to launch a review of the Freedom of Information Act was widely condemned last night as likely to lead to “more secrecy, more mistakes and bad decisions”.

The unexpected move to set up a review of the law emerged just hours after a FoI request revealed how British pilots were involved in Syrian air strikes – a fact ministers had kept from the public.

Critics argued that a commission was likely to lead to more secrecy – allowing politicians and officials to conceal “bad decisions and mistakes”. They expressed scepticism that the review would be unbiased, given that one of the commissioners, former Labour Foreign Secretary Jack Straw, is an outspoken critic of how the Act is enforced.

Shipwreck found off North Carolina, possibly from late 1700s

Scientists using underwater vehicles and sonar have found a shipwreck off the North Carolina coast that may date back to the American Revolution, Duke University said Friday.

The expedition led by Duke marine scientist Cindy Van Dover found the previously unknown wreck in mile-deep waters on July 12 using an underwater robot and a manned submarine.

They've found artifacts including an iron chain, glass bottles, an unglazed pottery jug and navigational instruments including a metal compass. Archaeologists who examined photos of the artifacts say the wreck appears to date back as far as the late 18th century, which would make it a rare find.

Newtown Tax Assessors Database: ‘The whole town of Sandy Hook was bought off on Christmas Day 2009?, says investigator

That’s right, on Christmas Day of 2009, when just about every business in the country was closed, numerous real estate transactions for the amount of $0.00 (free) took place in and around the town, most of which included families or public figures, such as Gene Rossen, who were in some way connected to the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.

“Everybody gets a house for free”, factitiously said one Youtuber in a recent video posted on his channel after researching claims by others, like Youtuber LogicBeforeAuthority, who may have cracked open another part of the mystery surrounding the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting which took place Dec. 14 2012.

Syriza Leader Calls for Pan-European Anti-Austerity Movement

Marina Prentoulis, spokesperson for Syriza in the U.K., told teleSUR in an exclusive interview Thursday that what is needed is a “pan-European movement” capable of confronting the power of European capital and the neoliberal agenda of European leaders. The Greek parliament voted Thursday in favor of reform measures required by a deal reached between the government of Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and Greece's creditors. Prentoulis argued the Greek government was under extraordinary pressure and that alone there was little it could do to resist the demands of European leaders.

Wolfgang Halbig and Sandy Hook: Trick or Treason?

Among the most curious aspects of the Sandy Hook event (which have puzzled many students)include the presence of a sign saying, "Everyone must check in!", Port-a-Potties, boxes of bottled water and pizza cartons in the Firehouse, name tags on lanyards and parents cheerfully bringing their children to the scene of (what was alleged to be) a child-shooting massacre. Wolfgang and his attorney were able to extract from Newtown First Selectman (which is an office), Patricia Llorda, that the sign had been placed there, not by the city, but by Homeland Security, which drew audible gasps from those who were present:

All of this, of course, is consistent with the FEMA manual for the event, which declares there will be a rehearsal on 13 December 2012, where the event will "go live" on 14 December, where it states (in the manual) that everyone must check in and that refreshments and restrooms will be provided. The reason Wolfgang has been unable to obtain information as innocuous as who had provided the Port-a-Potties is because it would have revealed that they were delivered on 13 December, the day before the alleged shooting, which would have thereby exposed the entire hoax. The FOIA hearings were therefore getting too close to the truth and had to be subverted, which was done by the attorney, Monte Frank, elected to Head the Connecticut Bar, which appears to be his reward for managing the cover-up:

Undercover Vancouver Police officer Mark Horsley uncovers kindness in Downtown Eastside

A police officer who posed as a disabled man to catch thieves plaguing Vancouver's troubled Downtown Eastside was hit with unexpected kindness and compassion instead.

Police launched the undercover assignment last spring after a string of attacks and robberies against people in wheelchairs.

More than half of the crimes occurred in the city's Downtown Eastside, a neighbourhood known for its large homeless population, street drugs, crime and prostitution.

For five days, Staff Sgt. Mark Horsley wheeled through the neighbourhood in a wheelchair. He told people he had a brain injury and couldn't count and wore a waist wallet with money spilling out.

Expecting to encounter street thieves, Horsley, a 30-year police veteran, instead met men and women who looked out for him, gave him money and even prayed for him.

FLASHBACK - THE "BIG BANG" IS JUST RELIGION DISGUISED AS SCIENCE

Religious circles embraced the idea of an expanding universe because for the universe to be expanding, then at some point in the past it had to originate from a single point, called the "Big Bang". Indeed, the concept of the Big Bang did not originate with Edwin Hubble himself but was proposed by a Catholic Monk, Georges Lema'tre in 1927, two years before Hubble published his observations of the Red Shift.

The "Big Bang" coincided nicely with religious doctrine and just as had been the case with epicycles (and despite the embarrassment thereof) religious institutions sought to encourage this new model of the universe over all others, including the then prevalent "steady state" theory. In 1951 Pope Pius XII declared that Georges Lema'tre's work proved the Christian dogma of divine creation of the universe.

The Chattanooga Event Is a CIA/ISIS False Flag Operation

With regard to this event coinciding with Jade Helm, do you think this makes American soldiers, everywhere, more or less likely to carry out heinous acts against American citizens when ordered to do so, with regard to the Jade Helm drill?

People, in the name of self-preservation will do the unthinkable! I have just suggested one possible motive. And where we see ISIS involvement, the CIA is not far away. No doubt, some will say that the last statement is too conspiratorial. However, let me remind you that I have twice interviewed Scott Bennett and this operation has the CIA’s fingerprints all over it.

ISIS Is Funded By the CIA and Scott Bennett Can Can Prove It: ISIS is funded by the CIA, so says Scott Bennett who was a U.S. Army Special Operations Officer (11th Psychological Operations Battalion, Civil Affairs-Psychological Operations Command), and a global psychological warfare-counterterrorism analyst, formerly with defense contractor Booz Allen Hamilton.

Wicked WikiLeaks leaks considered harmful: Alert over malware lurking in dumped docs

Unfortunately, no one appears to have had the time to scrub the five million Stratfor emails, which date back to 2004, clean of malware.

Josh Wieder, a sysadmin who found a load of bad code in the Stratfor leaks, fears journalists, activists, researchers and anyone else curious enough to peruse the disclosed data may end up infecting themselves with a software nasty.

El Reg has verified that the documents identified by Wieder are dangerous. It's possible there are more infected files lurking in WikiLeaks' databases of unfiltered data.

For example, take this internal memo dated February 2011 about Cyrenaica and Tripolitania, two regions of conflict-torn Libya. The attached Microsoft Word document triggers malware alarms on VirusTotal because it includes a code-execution exploit for Microsoft Office on Windows and Mac (CVE-2010-3333).

"The court has recognised what was clear to many last year, that the government's hasty and ill-thought through legislation is fatally flawed," said triumphant MP for Haltemprice and Howden, Davis. "They will now have to rewrite the law to require judicial or independent approval before accessing innocent people's data, reflecting the new consensus amongst experts in the Anderson and RUSI reports. This change will improve both privacy and security, as whilst the government gave Parliament one day to consider its law, the court has given almost nine months."

With the influential pro-Israel lobby group pushing for Congress to reject the deal negotiated by the Obama administration, it’s all hands on deck. Lay leaders, too, are canceling their summer plans, and AIPAC activists already are calling lawmakers and hitting synagogue listservs with appeals to can the plan.

David Rubin - Five Reasons to Attack Iran

As details of the agreement with Iran continue to emerge, it becomes more and more evident that the deal is an existential danger to the survival of the State of Israel. While it is seems clear that US President Barack Obama will be preparing a compensation package to placate Israel and other concerned nations in the Middle East, this will only increase the arms race in the region, thereby making nuclear conflict more likely, as the Persian Gulf nations will now feel compelled to achieve nuclear capability to counter the Iranian threat.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Okay, David, if you really feel that way about it... Here's your rifle. Here's your parachute. We ran out of the desert camo but here's a bright da-glo orange jumpsuit from the CIA's torture centers. Watch your head climbing into that transport aircraft, and we will call Tehran and tell them you are on your way to kick their butts all by yourself.

But We The People remember the lies about stolen incubators that tricked us into the first invasion of Iraq.

We The People remember the lies about Saddam's nuclear weapons, echoed by Netanyahu, that tricked us into the second invasion of Iraq.

We The People remember how only a year ago Obama and Kerry tried to trick us into war with Syria with more lies about poison gas.

We The People remember how there weren't really torpedoes in the Gulf of Tonkin or a Spanish mine in Havana Harbor, but how there really WERE weapons on board the Lusitania.

We The People remember how Israel lied about the Lavon affair and the attack on the USS Liberty

We The People remember how Israel has been screaming that Iran is just six months away from a nuclear weapon ... since the 1980s.



Israeli newspaper from 1984, "Iranian nuclear bomb enters final manufacturing phase"

We The People remember that Iran has not launched a war of aggression against another nation in over 200 years, and we remember that the US and Israel cannot seem to go six months without bombing or invading someone!

In short, We The People remember all the lies, frauds, and deceptions used to trick us into wars of conquest, to send our young people out to die in wars created out of thin air by and for the money-junkies and for Israel. I think it is time that we have a new rule; that those who want war are the first to the front lines. You are splendidly brave with the lives of other peoples' children.

'Was there a 2nd plane?' New footage shows MH17 crash site minutes after Boeing downing

The text cites a rebel commander as saying that "the Sukhoi [fighter jet] brought down the plane and we brought down the Sukhoi."

Later on, the man is quoted as saying that "there’s two planes taken down,” while a voice in the background says, "the fighter jet brought down this one [MH17 Boeing], and our people brought down the fighter. They [the Ukrainians] decided to do it this way, to make it look like we have brought down the plane."

According to the transcript, there were also between two and "five parachute jumpers" who landed at the nearby Grabove village. These included a pilot “roaming about Rassypnoe" [a nearby village] and a commander ordering his men go and get him immediately.

A picture has emerged of the Ukrainian pilot alleged to have been the 'executioner' of MH17
The Russian Investigative Committee is calling for Captain Vladislav Voloshin to take a lie detector test
A'secret witness' say he took off in a combat jet, armed with missiles
When he returned he was 'scared' saying MH17 was in the wrong place

Webmaster's Commentary: 

MH17 in the "wrong place?" What was Captain Vladislav Voloshin supposed to be shooting at that looks like a passenger jet painted white with blue and red trim?!?

As it happens, Russian President Vladimir Putin was flying through the same area on that very day, returning home from a six day visit to Cuba and South America. Putin's Presidential jet is based on the Ilyushin 96. The IL-96 is a passenger jet, and is painted with a similar color scheme to the Malaysian 777. At a distance, they could easily have been confused for one another!



So Kiev wanted to murder Putin, to throw the Russian government into turmoil while Kiev reconquered the east (and possibly Crimea), but botched the operation, shooting down MH17 instead, then tried to drop the blame on Russia.

MH17 One Year On: What Really Happened and Why

However, upon closer examination of the facts surrounding this case, an alternative set of conclusions can be drawn from this event – one which points to the very strong possibility that what the world really witnessed last year was a classic ‘false flag’ event – an attempted slight-of-hand bit of military trickery designed to cast blame on one party for a crime that was really committed by another. It wouldn’t be the first time that this type of sub-plot was put into motion to advance a world power’s geopolitical objectives.

The term false flag, or “black flag”, is most common in naval battles, and describes the historic covert, military use of a flag other than the perpetrator’s true flag colors as a type of ruse de guerre – designed to deceive and confuse in order to provide a fake ‘moral high ground’ in the theater of mass public opinion.

LIVE from GREECE: Greek People Victims Of Political Games

In general, people describe the current economic situation as hopeless; there is no outlook for growth whatsoever. Everyone agrees that this crisis will go on for many years before the country can see any economic improvement.

If anything, people are extremely frustrated. That remains underexposed in the media. The frustration comes from the fact that the masses believe they are disadvantaged with the ongoing reforms. People understand they have to contribute (by paying taxes for instance) to fight the crisis, but it has to happen equally: the ones who benefited most during the years of excesses should contribute proportionately more. And that is not happening. Even with this extreme left government led by Syriza, it is simply not happening.

ANNIVERSARY FLASHBACK - U.K. The Mysterious Death of Dr David Kelly: Damning New Evidence Points to a Cover-up by Tony Blair's Government

Many believe the truth about the manner of Dr Kelly's death has never been established properly. Some even fear that the 59-year-old, the world's leading expert in biological and chemical
weapons, was murdered.

Of course, it would be easy to dismiss these skeptics as wild conspiracy theorists but for the fact they include eminent doctors and MPs.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In March of 2003, the US and its international gang members invaded Iraq for the second time, selling the war to the public with the claim that Saddam Hussein had nuclear weapons of mass destruction, banned by the United Nations, and could destroy the US and UK with just 45 minutes' warning! Although it is widely accepted today that these claims of nuclear weapons were a complete lie used to justify what was actually a war to seize control of Iraq's oil to stop it from being sold for the Euro (which the UN had authorized just the year before), in mid 2003 the growing suspicions of deception were still being denounced by the government and by the presstitutes and whorespondents of the corporate media as "conspiracy theories", and those who asked pertinent questions as "tin-foil hat wearing kooks."

Attention quickly focused on the document produced by Tony Blair's office, since called the "Dodgy Dossier", claiming that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction. This was prompted by the revelation that it was actually copied from a hopelessly outdated student thesis (as publicly revealed by the student) and the leaking of the Downing Street Memo which made it clear that claims about WMDs were propaganda fixed around an already existing decision to launch a war of conquest into Iraq.

Public outcry forced the British Government to launch an investigation which found that Iraq had fully complied with the UN Resolution to dispose of its weapons of mass destruction, that Iraq never had nuclear weapons, and had destroyed their stockpiles of chemical weapons (most of which were given to Iraq by the US to use against Iran). This meant the US/UK invasion was not only totally unjustified but illegal as well. Key to the British Inquiry was weapons inspector Dr. David Kelly who resisted pressure to support the propaganda lie and provided clear documentation of the results of the inspections carried out by himself and his fellow team mates in trying to find the weapons Bush and Blair had insisted were there. The British inquiry concluded that Bush and Blair had lied. Then, on July 17th, 2003, Dr. Kelly, relaxing after his harrowing ordeal, went for a walk, and never returned home, His body was found the following day, and immediately declared to be a suicide, a combination of taking an overdose of pills followed by the slashing of his wrist.

But there were problems with the official story, starting with why Dr. Kelly would consider suicide when the stresses of the inquiry were now over? Paramedics at the scene where the body was found insisted it had been moved post-mortem, and found EKG sensors still taped to his chest! Dr. Kelly's family insisted he was not suicidal. The packages of pills found in Dr. Kelly's pocket did not have his fingerprints on them! And one of the other UN weapons inspectors reported that Dr. Kelly was on a "hit list" because of things he knew that had not yet been made public! And it was reported than a British agent had admitted Kelly had been "exterminated." At that point, both the US and UK governments simply ignored the matter while the corporate media continued to scream "You are all tin-foil hat wearing KOOKS!"

Britain says its pilots conducted Syria air strikes

British pilots have taken part in air strikes against Islamic State militants in Syria, the defence ministry said on Friday, angering some lawmakers who two years ago refused to back military action there.

The ministry said pilots had taken part in Syrian missions on behalf of its allies, the United States and Canada, and were "effectively operating as foreign troops".

Prime Minister David Cameron, who knew of the pilots' role, failed to get approval from lawmakers in 2013 for military action in Syria. Britain conducts regular attacks in neighbouring Iraq.

"There is an element of sophistry going on here ... at the very minimum, an insensitivity to parliament's will," John Baron, a lawmaker from Cameron's Conservative Party, told BBC radio.

TWA 800 - THE MAGIC WINGBOX - WHY THE OFFICIAL STORY CONTRADICTS ITSELF.

For the claimed center fuel tank explosion to have been the initiating event that resulted in CW-504 being at the start of the debris field, then at least two of the three main wing structural elements were broken by that event, probably all three (not to mention the thinner spars inside the tank itself). The NTSB's report actually reports that the front spar and spanwise beam #3 spars were torn loose by the supposed initiating explosion.

According to my sources at Boeing, even if the rear spar was undamaged, the loss of the two forwardsupports makes the plane unflyable! The wings will fail under the loading of level flight, let alone a high G pitch up maneuver.

This makes the claim of a zoom climb of 3000 feet following the loss of the nose not only aerodynamically impossible, but structurally impossible as well.

ANNIVERSARY FLASHBACK - Was TWA 800 Shot Down By a Military Missile?

In 1996 TWA Flight 800 was shot down south of Long Island.

The government of the United States, despite the embarrassment of having been caught in court rigging lab tests and lying in its reports, still officially attributes the disaster to a spark in the center fuel tank, while government spokespeople insist that the witnesses who saw a missile hit the jumbo jet are all drunks.
