Revealed: how Google enlisted members of US Congress it bankrolled to fight $6bn EU antitrust case

Google enlisted members of the US congress, whose election campaigns it had funded, to pressure the European Union to drop a €6bn antitrust case which threatens to decimate the US tech firm’s business in Europe.

The coordinated effort by senators and members of the House of Representatives, as well as by a congressional committee, formed part of a sophisticated, multimillion-pound lobbying drive in Brussels, which Google has significantly ramped up as it fends off challenges to its dominance in Europe.

Erdogan Mafia State: Turkish MP Faces ‘Treason’ Charges For Revealing How ISIS Used Turkey For Smuggling Chemical Weapons

A Turkish MP has been charged with treason today after alleging in an exclusive interview with RT that ISIS terrorists had smuggled deadly sarin nerve gas into Syria from Turkey.

Ankara’s Chief Prosecutor’s Office opened a case against Istanbul MP Eren Erdem, a member of the Republican People’s Party (CHP) after a TV interview which aired on RT on Monday.

This comes on the heals of massive international pressure on Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdo?an who has already been indirectly implicated for the role his government and military have played in facilitating terrorist operations in Syria and Northern Iraq.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The damage Edrogan has done to himself, personally and politically, in a series of bone-headed moves, both domestically and abroad, is nearly incalculable.

From downing a Russian fighter jet to invading Iraq, then criminalising the truth as illegal, as he has done in the case of accusing this opposition party member of treason, he has taken his country down a very dark road.

I don't think that the Turkish Constitution has an equivalent to the 25th Amendment to the Bill of Rights, but it would certainly be a good thing for the people of Turkey if they did right now.

Army of Conservative spin doctors paid for by YOU: £8.4million bill including a 42% pay rise for Osborne's makeover guru

David Cameron was today accused of breaking a promise to cut the cost of politics as the taxpayer-funded bill for government spin doctors hit £8.4million.

Chancellor George Osborne alone now has 10 spads working for him in the Treasury, including a new director of communications and the aide credited with overhauling his image given a 42 per cent pay hike.

New multi-toxin GMOs that produce their own poison carry 'serious health and environmental risks' scientific review finds

New strains of GM crops that produce pesticides in their own tissues are being approved without rigorous safety testing, even though they may carry "serious health and environmental risks," according to a research review conducted by scientists from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology and the German Federal Agency for Nature Conservation, and published in the journal Frontiers in Environmental Science on November 9.

The crops in question are engineered to carry pesticide-producing genes from the bacterial species Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt). In recent years, companies have increasingly turned to crossbreeding different varieties of Bt crops, producing crops that now carry numerous different strains of Bt toxin at once. These "stacked-trait" crops are being approved for planting and sale, based on several false assertions made by the genetically modified (GM) crop industry, the study found.

'Powerful blast' at Glasgow City Council data centre prompts IT meltdown

The catastrophic service outage at Glasgow City Council's data centre, caused after its IT systems servers were taken down by a fire suppressant accidentally going off, is continuing to cause widespread havoc for staff and the public.

The embarrassing blunder was caused by a faulty air conditioning unit setting off its fire suppressant system on Tuesday morning.

A spokesman said the suppressant system released a "powerful blast of gas" which shook the building.

A source told The Register that the malfunction caused damage to various equipment, including its IBM storage array, which hosts the data for many of the council’s systems – including the Microsoft Exchange email system, the social work client database, and the council tax and benefits systems.

Home About Antiwar.com Donate Blog US Casualties Contact Latest NewsBy Funding Foreign Militaries, the US Is Spreading Terrorism

Nothing recruits terrorists like corrupt security forces committing human rights abuses with impunity.

Recent, disparate terrorist attacks have shown that far from being “degraded and destroyed,” the Islamic State’s reach is growing. Unwilling to commit large numbers of U.S. boots on the ground, policymakers have instead doubled down on a “small footprint” approach of military aid to foreign governments. But this strategy is failing.

Contrary to what one might expect, US military aid doesn’t produce willing, cooperative, or effective security partners. Instead, it incentivizes bad behavior and drives the sources of terrorism: corruption, violence, and poor governance. Unwittingly, this policy is creating its own enemies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The article very much misses the point; the way in which US military aid is given insures the continuation of the alleged "war on terror" (which is much more clearly defined as a war on people, who live over, or adjacent to, resources the US government wants its own corporations to expropriate) in perpetuity.

And that is precisely what the American military industrial complex loves.

"Let Them Fly There Now": Putin Threatens To Shoot Down Turkish Jets In Syria, Calls Erdogan An Ass Kisser

It’s been nearly a month since Turkey shot down a Russian Su-24 in what not only represented the most serious escalation to date in Syria’s five year conflict but also marked the first time a NATO member has engaged a Russian or Soviet aircraft in at least six decades.

The “incident” - which came several weeks after Ankara downed what certainly appeared to be a Russian drone - infuriated The Kremlin, setting off a war of words that culminated in a lengthy presentation by the Russian MoD which purported to prove that illicit Islamic State oil flows through Turkey. Both Putin and a number of other Russian officials have implicated Erdogan and his family in the trafficking of illegal crude and there’s speculation that Ankara’s brazen move to fire on the Russian warplane stemmed from Erdogan’s desire to “punish” Russia for disrupting what Deputy Minister of Defence Anatoly Antonov sarcastically called “a brilliant family business.”

On Wednesday, Attorney General Loretta Lynch announced at the United Nations that her office would be working in several American cities to form what she called the Strong Cities Network (SCN), a law enforcement initiative that would encompass the globe.

This amounts to nothing less than the overriding of American laws, up to and including the United States Constitution, in favor of United Nations laws that would henceforth be implemented in the United States itself – without any consultation of Congress at all.

Saudi Airstrikes Pound Yemen as Ceasefire Falters

Saudi warplanes tend to kill a few dozen people in Yemen on any given day, and despite the newly minted ceasefire today was no different, with Saudi warplanes pounding Houthi targets in several provinces across Yemen. The Saudis did not deny this.

Rather, Saudi officials say they were “responding” to Houthi hostility and that if anything their airstrikes proved that the Houthis are not to be trusted in the ongoing peace talks in Geneva. The UN has a total blackout on media coverage at the talks, so there is needless to say no news there.

Still, fighting on the ground has slowed, if not totally stopped, so there is some relative calm in some parts of Yemen. Saudi officials, however, say this too could “collapse at any moment” with a full resumption of hostilities.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were I a betting woman, I would not bet that this cease-fire will be allowed to stand by the US-militarily enabled Saudi military.

Even though the Saudis have experienced real military blowback at the hands of Houthi rebels, the US, most likely, is not going to allow the Yemenite people to determine their own destiny, and are hell-bent in re-installing Al-Hadi as the country's president.

Which US presidential candidate is good for Israel?

The only person who can extricate Netanyahu from this catch-22 is one of his patrons, the gambling tycoon Sheldon Adelson, who is being courted by all the Republican candidates with one exception, the billionaire Donald Trump, who doesn’t need campaign contributions. If one of the other candidates gets to the White House in 2016, he or she will need Adelson’s money to stay there after 2020. That will require Jerusalem’s blessing. Meanwhile, Trump has sent Netanyahu and Adelson a troubling message. In an Associated Press interview, he said that if he manages to bring about peace between Israel and the Palestinians, “That would be to me a great achievement.” He added that he would know within six months of launching his efforts whether they would be successful. Netanyahu would prefer someone like Marco Rubio, who said at a conference of the Republic Jewish Coalition that peace was a far-off dream for Israel.

The Obama administration is no longer publicly asking for “regime change” in Syria after multiple news reports revealed how NATO and its allies have spent years supporting Islamic jihadists to try and topple Syrian president Bashar al-Assad.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said he accepted Russia’s request that the U.S. let the Syrian people decide Assad’s political fate.
“The United States and our partners are not seeking so-called regime change,” Kerry told reporters on Tuesday after meeting President Vladimir Putin.

This is a huge concession from the Obama administration considering the president spent the past several years stating “Assad must go.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The Obama Administration has had to blink here, once the truth was out, and it is largely to the credit of the independent media that this happened.

How the Army freaked out civilians during the San Bernardino shooting

On Dec. 2, as law enforcement officials began exchanging gunfire with San Bernardino, Calif., shooters Syed R. Farook and Tashfeen Malik, U.S. Army officials in Fort Bragg, N.C., conducted a training exercise that wound up scaring the local community, already on edge following news of the West coast attack on their televisions and social media.

Three unidentified U.S. Army soldiers wearing plain clothes showed up at White Oak Elementary School and Bogue Sound Elementary School asking school officials at both locations if the schools were crisis evacuation centers. When school administrators became suspicious of the men because of the questions being asked, the men presented “military style ID cards” and said they were representatives from U.S. Army base Fort Bragg, in Fayetteville, North Carolina, according to a press release from Carteret County Sheriffs Office.

Turing CEO Martin Shkreli in custody after securities probe

Martin Shkreli, the former hedge fund manager under fire for buying a pharmaceutical company and ratcheting up the price of a life-saving drug, is in custody following a securities probe.

Calls to an attorney who has represented Shkreli in the past were not immediately returned. The Brooklyn man's arrest was confirmed Thursday by FBI spokeswoman Kelly Langmesser.

A seven-count indictment unsealed in Brooklyn federal court charged Shkreli with conspiracy to commit securities fraud, conspiracy to commit wire fraud and securities fraud. A second defendant, attorney Evan Greebel, of Scarsdale, New York, was charged with conspiracy to commit wire fraud. It was not immediately clear who will represent Greebel in court.

‘Pharma bro’ Martin Shkreli arrested on federal securities fraud charges

Martin Shkreli, the price-gouging pharmaceutical company executive, was arrested early Thursday morning on securities fraud charges.

The 32-year-old CEO of Turing Pharmaceuticals AG became known as the most hated man on the Internet after buying the rights to a life-saving medication and jacking up the price from $13.50 to $750 per pill.

Federal investigators charged Shkreli with illegally taking stock from Retrophin Inc., another biotech firm he founded in 2011, to pay off debts from unrelated business dealings, reported Bloomberg.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF these charges are made to stick (and that is left to be seen), this man, with the morals of a dead tree stump, could, in fact, be doing some serious time.

We will have to wait to see how this unfolds.

Theoretically, it would be a great story for the American press: an autocrat so obsessed with overthrowing the leader of a neighboring country that he authorizes his intelligence services to collaborate with terrorists in staging a lethal sarin attack to be blamed on his enemy and thus trick major powers to launch punishing bombing raids against the enemy’s military.

And, after that scheme failed to achieve the desired intervention, the autocrat continues to have his intelligence services aid terrorists inside the neighboring country by providing weapons and safe transit for truck convoys carrying the terrorists’ oil to market. The story gets juicier because the autocrat’s son allegedly shares in the oil profits.

To make the story even more compelling, an opposition leader braves the wrath of the autocrat by seeking to expose these intelligence schemes, including the cover-up of key evidence. The autocrat’s government then seeks to prosecute the critic for “treason.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More proof that one cannot believe a word the corporate whorespondents or the Federal Government say., not ever.

The lies are there to create a "false narrative" in order to coax the American people to feel one way or another about various domestic or international issues, and accept the official story as gospel.

WRH didn't fall for this then, and doesn't fall for the official codswallop on anything the presstitutes or government is telling us now.

But the most valuable thing one can do, in an age of lies, is to think for yourself, to see if the official narrative on ANYTHING holds up to logical scrutiny; and you will find that most of the time, it will not.

Recent years have seen a rise in publicity for police unions and their leaders, most famous for their unquestioning defense of criminal officers and leadership that spouts vitriolic rhetoric. Stephanie Lopez, president of the Albuquerque Police Officers Association (APOA), proved this stereotype to be true, and herself as both a bully and a criminal, after being arrested for beating her underage daughter.

Lopez was charged with child abuse and booked on a $5,000 bond after causing great bodily harm to her daughter. The daughter was struck repeatedly in the head, had her hair pulled, and was thrown to the ground by Lopez. After reporting it to her school resource officers, the daughter and school administrators went to law enforcement – a somewhat brave act, considering her mother’s relationship with the police department. As such, the Bernalillo County Sherrif’s Department, instead of the Albuquerque Police Department, undertook the investigation and subsequent arrest.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When police officers believe that their obligation "to protect and serve" means that they can beat anyone up, even their own kids, or kill them with a firearm with impunity, you have an institutionally sick culture; and that is what is happening with American policing right now.

Buried in the 2,000-page omnibus spending bill released by the Senate Wednesday morning is a secret provision that many senators hope unemployed blue-collar workers won’t find out about.

This provision would quadruple the number of H-2B visas for low-skilled foreign “guest workers.” It would allow more than a quarter-of-a-million foreign workers to enter the U.S. each year and work in the construction industry, hotel-motel services, truck drivers, food processing, forestry and many other fields that don’t require a college education.

A vote on the spending bill is expected late Thursday night, possibly after midnight, sources on the Hill told WND.

The bill also includes funding for all of President Obama’s foreign refugee resettlement program and does nothing to stop the proliferation of so-called “sanctuary cities.”

Webmaster's Commentary:

Claims that trade pacts like the pending Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) will not trump public health and environmental policies were revealed to be fiction on Tuesday after Congress, bending to the will of the World Trade Organization, killedthe popular country-of-origin label (COOL) law.

The provision, tucked inside the omnibus budget agreement, repeals a law that required labels for certain packaged meats, which food safety and consumer groups have said is essential for consumer choice and animal welfare, as well as environmental and public health.

Congress successful revoked the mandate just over one week after the WTO ruled that the U.S. could be forced to pay $1 billion annually to its NAFTA partners, which argued that the law "accorded unfavorable treatment to Canadian and Mexican livestock."

We now know that ATF investigators recovered police issued firearms from the alleged shooters. This key detail was leaked by 2016 GOP Presidential Candidate Carly Fiorina during a press interview after she had overheard a newsroom report that doesn’t fit the official narrative.

We also know that active shooter drills actually took place near the crime scene just days before and possibly even on the same day of the mass shooting as reported by Mac Slavo.

Additionally details from an eyewitness, who came forth on the day of the shooting, may have been overlooked by investigators and suggest that there were actually ‘three white shooters’ instead of the radicalized husband and wife natural-born killer team portrayed in some mainline reports.
