THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

"Our public credit is good, but the abundance of paper has produced a spirit of gambling in the funds, which has laid up our ships at the wharves as too slow instruments of profit, and has even disarmed the hand of the tailor of his needle and thimble. They say the evil will cure itself. I wish it may; but I have rarely seen a gamester cured, even by the disasters of his vocation." –Thomas Jefferson to Gouverneur Morris, 1791. ME 8:241

Hillary Clinton: Big Friend of Big Bankers

With the cost of a 2016 presidential campaign expected to reach more than $1 billion, a candidate will need some rich friends. Fortunately for Hillary Clinton, she has plenty of those on Wall Street. Nomi Prins, a former Wall Street executive and now senior fellow at the nonpartisan public policy institute Demos, writes that Clinton should be able to count on help from large financial institutions. Prins is the author of All the Presidents' Bankers: The Hidden Alliances that Drive American Power.

The Baltimore Uprising and the U.S. Government's Record on Human Rights

On Friday, Baltimore state's attorney Marilyn Mosby declared that six police officers will face criminal charges including second degree heart murder, manslaughter, assault and false imprisonment for their role in the arrest and homicide of 25-year-old African American Freddie Gray. While this is welcome and encouraging news for those seeking justice for Gray and his family, past experience demonstrates the odds the accused criminals will be convicted are miniscule. Regardless, it is not enough to treat the Freddie Gray incident as merely a violation of domestic law.

Judge: Gov’t Does Not Need to Compensate You if It Destroys Your Property

From Houston, we have a tale that really exemplifies what is wrong with this country. The government borrowed this man’s truck, returned it months later full of bullets and blood, endangered his business and his family, then refused to compensate him a dime!

It’s Official: Police Were Ordered To Stand Down And Let The Baltimore Riots Rage Out Of Control

We now have official confirmation that the rioting in Baltimore on Monday was purposely allowed to spiral out of control. Up until now, there had been some unconfirmed reports that police in Baltimore had been ordered to “stand down” during the riots, but nobody had been willing to come forward and go on the record. Now that has all changed. Michael Lewis is the Sheriff of Wicomico County, Maryland and what he has to say is absolutely jaw dropping. When he saw what was happening in Baltimore, he gathered up some of his fellow officers and drove down to the city to help. But when he got there, he says that all of the police were being ordered not to take any action and to let the rioters destroy property. Lewis made this astounding claim during a discussion on a Baltimore radio station…

Half Dressed Principal Caught with Student Getting High

Authorities say a Florida principal has been arrested after she was caught partially unclothed in a marijuana-smoke-filled car with a student.

Now, when I first read that sentence, I had to do a double take. When I had decided to read this report, I naturally assumed the principal was a man. I assumed that this man had lured a student into his car with the promise of drugs. I had in my mind a young well-kept man that the young girls dreamed about. But when I read that the principal was a 45-year-old woman, I almost passed. But this is a double standard.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I assume the Principle and Student were working on their common core!

Manmade warming hypothesis? What’s a hypothesis?

By Jon Rappoport

These days, what passes for logic is the effort to associate one idea with another favored idea. Then the first idea is accepted as fact.

If the first idea were “all Martians wear tuxedos,” and people associated that with “juicy burgers are delicious,” they would conclude that Martians, without doubt, all wear tuxes.

Associating with one idea with another is also, of course, a propaganda/advertising device.

Apparently, schools no longer teach students what a scientific hypothesis is...

Has the human race become demonic?

What is wrong with the human race? We have governments nowadays arming terrorists, sending terrorists into civilian areas to run amok, to cut people into pieces, set fire to them, cut their lips off, rape them, impale them with iron bars, steal, loot, torture (the FUKUS Axis in Libya). We have governments spreading lies to create the conditions for public opinion to give the go-ahead for invasions and acts of slaughter.
We have governments elected by minorities, we have acts of murder condoned by world leaders, we have military aircraft strafing houses with kids, we have military aircraft targeting water supplies and we have military aircraft bombing the electricity grid. Civilian targets...

Feds Spent Two Years Deciphering Lyrics to ‘Louie Louie,’ Failed to Realize Copyright Office Already Had Them

One mother, whose daughter bought the banned album, said of the interpretations: “The lyrics are so filthy that I can-not enclose them in this letter.”

The complaints set off a chain reaction that took up a ton of agents and hundreds of man-hours across multiple agencies, even utilizing an FBI crime laboratory.

Evidenced by the documents, federal agents listened to the song forwards and backwards numerous times “at various speeds but none of the speeds assisted in determining the words of the song on the record.”

Interestingly, the version of “Louie Louie” that was popularized by The Kingsmen was actually a cover, previously recorded by Richard Berry and subsequently by other bands, meaning the FBI could have actually looked at those versions to find out the lyrics.

The documents also reveal it was almost two years before someone realized the copyright office probably had the lyrics on file.

While the coverage surrounding this story focuses primarily on federal agencies it’s important to step back for a moment and view the big picture. In particular, looking at who builds, operates, and profits from mass surveillance technology offers insight into the nature of the global panopticon.

Eternal Shame to "America," Germany and Europe

One hardly knows where to begin when listing all the examples of the shame and disgrace that the US, Germany and Europe have brought upon themselves. They have failed every test for humanity, especially and including their monotonous demand for obedience, that one and all are to follow their prescribed model of freedom and democracy.
One year ago, on 2 May, an untold number of individuals (from 48 to as many as 100) were savagely burned alive or beaten to death with the full encouragement of the Kiev junta and their western handlers. Washington and the west have since played deaf, dumb and blind to this most egregious war crime which began the genocidal murder campaign against all opposition to the fascist Kiev junta.
To this day, there has been no investigation of this war crime. Indeed, even a Kiev Rada Deputy was filmed dancing on burned bodies on Odessa's Kulikovo Polie during on May 2, 2014.

A new world order? Putin and Xi put friendship on display

At first sight, things look very different now. When President Xi Jinping of China took pride of place next to Vladimir Putin of Russia on Saturday, they looked like any other modern world leaders: pragmatic men-in-suits, full of smiles, temporary possessors of power rather than dictators-for-life.

But the two events, six decades apart, have a clear parallel. Once again, the Russia-China axis is the main threat to the West's vision of peaceful and prosperous international relations.

The line-up of leaders alongside the two men was a walking representation of a new anti-American alliance that has formed bit by bit since the invasion of Iraq demonstrated the frightening ease with which Washington could destroy hostile leaders far away.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but has the author of this article gone absolutely barking mad, to have written this?!? Has he actually imbibed the Koolaid, or has he been told by his editors that he had to slant the article to demonize Russia and China?!?

The US government, with the Israeli government nipping at its heals to do this, invaded and occupied Iraq for the oil, and to make sure that the oil was only sold in US dollars.

The mess,the massive physical illnesses, courtesy of the use of depleted uranium, and tragedy of Sunni turning upon Shiite in this country, can all be laid at the feet of the US invasion and occupation. And we left Iraq because Muqtada al Sadr, leader of the Mahdi Army, threatened that if the US did not leave, every US soldier would be a target.

Russia and China have moved closer together because of the US sanctions against Russia over Ukraine, from which Russia is recovering, quite nicely, economically, thank you very much.

And no, the US does NOT sponsor "...western style democracy." It sponsors tinpot dictators, like Yemen's Al-Hadi, whose people have shown him the door, and the Al-Khalifa monarchy in Bahrain, who continually oppresses its own people who are merely asking for a constitutional monarchy. They are teargassed and beaten, and when first responders attempt to help them with medical attention, in order to attempt to save their lives, those first responders are themselves tortured into confession, convicted in a kangaroo court, and sentenced to long prison sentences.

The US supports and enables both the House of Saud, in its murderous attack against Yemen, where women, children, and hospitals are fair game for targeting, and enables the Israeli government in their serial genocide of the Palestinians.

That phrase "Mr Putin and his allies all have their reasons for disliking the West's tendency to set a high store on open elections, a free press and "cooperative" foreign policies."

Free elections?!? How about elections which are rigged so outrageously as to have had to have been screwed into the ballot box?!? Does this person come from such a deprived film appreciation background that he has never seen the brilliant film "Recount", or the documentary by Bev Harris, "Hacking Democracy" ?!?!?

And an alleged "free press"?!? Oh yes, the corporate presstitutes are free to say whatever their corporate masters tell them to say. One tiny straying off the path of correctness, and your career is done for.

Does this man remember when Helen Thomas asked President Obama at a press conference which countries in the Middle East had nuclear weapons, which we know Israel does?!? She was silenced, and never had that opportunity again.

Russia and China have moved closer together because they have been pushed there by a horrifically myopic US foreign policy, which has all the hallmarks of being crafted by a group of people who are pathologically incapable of thinking a scenario through to its logical conclusion.

The US government now has troops on the ground in Ukraine, and is doing everything possible to provoke Putin into military action against it. IF that does not work, look for a potential false flag event, to be blamed on Russia as the beginning of World War III.

And lastly, please be aware that there is a bill, still sitting in committee for the last two years, introduced by Charlie Rangel, the senior representative from New York, which will bring back the draft, not only for our young men, but also our young women as well.

Something wicked this way comes folks, but it is NOT the fault of Russia and China. The US government, instead of making deals and winning friends, is waging wars, and continuing to plan for more wars, to get what it wants, geopolitically.

Scientific American published this map showing an increase in heavy rains since 1958, and blamed them on global warming.

Now check out the spectacular fraud being committed. The author cherry picked the start date of 1958, because it was the minimum in the US climate record. In fact, heavy rainfall events were much more common in the early 20th century, when temperatures were cooler.

EU draws up plans for military attacks on Libya targets to stop migrant boats

On Monday, Federica Mogherini, the EU’s chief foreign and security policy coordinator, is to brief the UN security council in New York on the plans for a “chapter seven” resolution authorising the use of force. The British draft is believed to call for the “use of all means to destroy the business model of the traffickers”.

This would entail having EU vessels in Libyan territorial waters, including the Royal Navy flagship HMS Bulwark – currently in Malta – and deploying helicopter gunships to “neutralise” identified traffickers’ ships used to send tens of thousands of migrants from sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East on the short but highly risky voyage from the Libyan coast to the shores of southern Italy.

Legendary Treasure Is Found In Madagascar

Pirate Captain Kidd's legendary treasure is found in Madagascar

A silver bar believed to be the first piece of the long-lost treasure haul of Scottish pirate William Kidd has been found in shallow waters off Madagascar.

The 50kg ingot, engraved with the initials TS and dated 1695 - just three years before Captain Kidd's ship sank - was discovered in a hidden chamber of a wreck by an American diver who has been exploring the bay for 15 years.

If the wreck is confirmed to be Kidd's, it will bring an end to a global search for the privateer's booty that began almost the moment he was hanged for piracy and murder in London 300 years ago.

Scott Walker Targets Jeb Bush in South Carolina Speech
***
“From our family, we didn’t inherit fame or fortune, what we inherited was the belief that if you work hard and you play by the rules you can do and be anything you want,” he said.
***
...In South Carolina, he offered a subtle corrective, noting that he is headed to Israel later today and assuring the audience — which was full of military service-members and their families — that he cares about national security as much as anyone.

Walker said he prefers to use the term “safety,” rather than national security.
“National security is something you read about in the newspaper; safety is something you feel,” he said. “It’s something that — even though as a governor I don’t deal with it day in and day out — it has increasingly become one of the most important things for me to focus in on, because when I think about safety, I think about my own children and I think about yours as well.”

Economic Disinformation Keeps Financial Markets Up

Jobs offshoring has shriveled the employment opportunities for Americans. These shriveled opportunities are largely responsible for stagnation and decline in real median family incomes, for the falling labor force participation rate, for the rising inequality in the income and wealth distribution, and for student loans that cannot be repaid from the lowly paid jobs available. Corporations and Wall Street in pursuit of short-term profits have given the economy away. Much of the former US economy now belongs to China and India.

Cameron back in No 10 looks like bad news for Middle East peace

The closest fought UK General Election for many years has produced an unexpected victory for David Cameron and the Conservative Party. With predictions of a hung parliament built around Westminster fears of a tartan invasion by Scottish National Party MPs, the result of a clearly failing first-past-the-post electoral system is likely to fuel calls for electoral reform. Millions of votes for minority parties were, to all intents and purposes, wasted. This, though, is not the only negative aspect of the poll. It is bad news all round for peace in the Middle East, and the first to feel the effects will be Britain's 2-million Muslim citizens.
