THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

"CEOs of most of the world's largest corporations daily make decisions that destroy the lives of many other human beings. Only about 1 to 3 percent of us are sociopaths - people who don't have normal human feelings and can easily go to sleep at night after having done horrific things. And of that 1 percent of sociopaths, there's probably only a fraction of a percent with a college education. And of that tiny fraction, there's an even tinier fraction that understands how business works, particularly within any specific industry. Thus there is such a shortage of people who can run modern monopolistic, destructive corporations that stockholders have to pay millions to get them to work. And being sociopaths, they gladly take the money without any thought to its social consequences." -- Thom Hartman

Who’s a Charlie? France cracks down on free speech in order to defend it

In grim and supreme irony, French police have fanned out to suppress free speech in order to defend it.

“France ordered prosecutors around the country to crack down on hate speech, anti-Semitism and glorifying terrorism, announcing Wednesday that 54 people had been arrested for those offenses” since last week, the Associated Press reports.

The news of the arrests comes a week after the murders of 17 people at and near the offices of the magazine Charlie Hebdo and at a Jewish supermarket in Paris.

Hollywood shocker: ‘American Sniper’ receives Oscar best-picture nomination

“American Sniper,” the highly-anticipated movie about Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, received a coveted Oscar nomination for best picture of 2015....

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This reminds me of how "Avatar" was snubbed by the Academy in order to hand the Best Picture Oscar to the pro-war "Hurt Locker." Like the Nobel Peace Prize, the Oscar has destroyed its own credibility.

False Flag Attacks By Zionists Against Fellow Jews

But perhaps most interesting was the assessment given by career CIA officer Wilbur Crane Eveland:

In attempts to portray the Iraqis as anti-American and to terrorize the Jews, the Zionists planted bombs in the U.S. Information Service library and in synagogues. Soon leaflets began to appear urging Jews to flee to Israel. . . .
Although the Iraqi police later provided our embassy with evidence to show that the synagogue and library bombings, as well as the anti-Jewish and anti-American leaflet campaigns, had been the work of an underground Zionist organization, most of the world believed reports that Arab terrorism had motivated the flight of the Iraqi Jews whom the Zionists had “rescued” really just in order to increase Israel’s Jewish population.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel carries out false-flag attacks against the Jewish people, to trick them into emigrating to Israel, where they find life is a lot worse for them than it had been in their original homes.

A Historical Look At Israeli False Flag Operations

With all that we see happening with the London bombings, I think it is wise for us to consider the following. History could be repeating itself. British and American targets have been bombed before, and the evidence seemed to point to a specific perpetrator. But the evidence was faked.

Numerous writers, scientists, investigators and even political figures have pointed out Israel’s involvement with 9/11. There is a huge pile of evidence that is being ignored, shoved under the carpet and being labeled as “urban legend” and "conspiracy theory" regarding Israel’s involvement in 9/11. We should know that Jews have a consistent history of fraudulent actions resulting in the loss of lives of millions of human beings to accomplish their purpose.

Ex-Mossad Agent: Israel Uses ‘False Flag’ in Most Operations to Avoid Suspicion in Arab States

Israel’s Mossad has regularly faked Australian passports for its spies, an ex-agent said on Thursday, as anger grew over the use of foreign travel documents for an alleged assassination.

Former Mossad case officer Victor Ostrovsky told ABC public radio that the spy agency had used Australian passports for previous operations before last month’s assassination of a top Hamas commander in Dubai that has been blamed on Israel.

Israel’s Use of False Flags in Global Terrorism

Those who believe that Israel is behind the alleged chemical weapons attack in Syria—hiding behind a “false flag” designed to implicate the Syrian government—have very good reason to believe in such a scenario.

In fact, as my book, Final Judgment, which documents the role of Israel’s Mossad in the assassination of John F. Kennedy, first pointed out at far back as 1994, the use of “false flags” by Israel’s Mossad to cover up its role in worldwide assassination conspiracies and other criminal activity had been utilized time and again: “Arabs,” “radical Muslims,” “the Mafia,” “right-wing extremists,” and even environmentalists, among others, have repeatedly taken the fall for crimes committed by the Mossad or carried out under its coordination.

The use of “false flag” operations by Israel and its Mossad has been documented repeatedly since the Jewish State first came into being.

Abu Nidal. World's most prolific terrorist

Author Patrick Seale wrote:

Abu Nidal was undoubtedly a Mossad agent. Practically every job he did benefited Israel.

Confirming Seale's theory are top Middle East terrorism experts, including intelligence officers in Arab countries, and even within Abu Nidal's own organization.

All the European and Mid-East terror experts agree that Nidal was Mossad.

He was a protégé of Menacham Begins ... ran free for 30 yrs ...used to kill unwanted Palestinians

Seale pointed out the senseless and extremely brutal attacks only benefited Israel. Nidal had two thrusts .... He killed Palestinians that were a threat to Israel, and hijacked American and European jets.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The American media presented Abu Nidal as the "typical" evil Palestinian, but as Patrick Seale correctly points out, everything Abu Nidal did, from the Achiolle Lauro to the Munich Massacre, always helped build sympathy for Israel and demonize the Palestinians. Something to keep in mind when evaluating events in Paris.

British document: Israel initiated Entebbe hijack

In the document, written on 30 June 1976 when the crisis was still unresolved, DH Colvin of the Paris Embassy wrote that according to his source, "the hijack was the work of the PFLP, with help from the Israeli Secret Service, the Shin Bet.

"The operation was designed to torpedo the PLO's standing in France and to prevent what they see as a growing rapprochement between the PLO and the Americans."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel literally created the Entebbe hijacking, and used this false-flag attack to trick the world into seeing the Palestinians as evil.



Jan 15 07:59

THE BOMBING THAT STARTED IT ALL!

Menachem Begin planned the destruction of the King David Hotel and the massacre of Deir Yassin. Ex prime minister, Shamir, was originally a member of the Jewish "terrorist" gang called Irgun, which was headed by none other than Menachem Begin. Shamir later moved over to the even more radical "Stern Gang," which committed many vicious atrocities.

Shamir himself has defended the various assassinations committed by the Irgun and Stern gangs on the grounds that "it was the only way we could operate, because we were so small. So it was more efficient and more moral to go for selected targets." The selected moral targets in those early days of the founding of the state of Israel included bombing of the King David Hotel and the massacre of Deir Yassin.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel was created with a false-flag attack; the July 2, 1946 bombing of the King David Hotel, then being used to house British administration officials. Although carried out by Israelis, the Palestinians were framed for the "terror" attack, to turn the British against the Palestinians! Keep this history of Israel in mind when evaluating Paris, or anything else that goes "bang" and is then blamed on Muslims.

America the Target: 9-11 and Israel's History of False Flag Terrorism

There is solid evidence that Israeli intelligence agencies had prior knowledge of 9-11, which is indicative of involvement in the attacks. Public statements made by key terror suspects, the five jubilant "movers" arrested in New Jersey, for example, who were actually Israeli intelligence agents, indicate that they possessed prior knowledge of the attacks.

In November 2001, after two months in U.S. custody, three of the five agents appeared on Israeli television and admitted, in plain Hebrew, that their purpose had been to document the event. The Israeli interviewer did not ask the men who had sent them, but it is quite clear they were working for Israeli intelligence.

Jan 15 07:51

The Israeli Spy Ring

"Evidence linking these Israelis to 9/11 is classified. I cannot tell you about evidence that has been gathered. It's classified information." -- US official quoted in Carl Cameron's Fox News report on the Israeli spy ring and its connections to 9-11.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Israel has a very long history of using false-flag operations to trick other countries into waging war on Israel's enemies. On 9-11, as was the case with the USS Liberty cover-up, the Israelis appear to have the full cooperation of the United States Government!

9-11: FBI Fury As Men With Nuke Plans,Valid Israeli Passports Escape

The men were searched and questioned and the state officers discovered detailed plans and photographs of a nuclear power plant in Florida, along with box cutters-the weapons used in the September 11 attacks- and other equipment.

The men, who appeared to be of Middle Eastern origin and held Israeli passports, were then interviewed by immigration officials. When their passports and visas were found to be in order the officers, who were not aware of the country's imminent security alert, let the men go without first calling in the FBI to question them more thoroughly.

HUNDREDS OF MOSSAD AGENTSCAUGHT RUNNING WILD IN AMERICA!

We spoke earlier about the five celebrating Israeli "movers", (Mossad agents), who were arrested and placed in solitary confinement for weeks after they were spotted in a white van suspected of attempting to blow up the George Washington Bridge. We also reviewed how the Israeli owner of Urban Moving Systems - Dominick Suter - then suddenly abandoned his "moving company" and fled for Israel on 9-14. But there were still more Israeli "movers" and other Israelis whose actions raise serious suspicions. Even more suspicious is how they are always quietly released and deported.

9-11: FBI Turning Over StonesWith Israelis Underneath

On November 10th, the New York Times reported that America was cracking down on terrorism by toughening policies for immigration from Arab countries, hinting that people entering from any of those countries are suspect in our government's eyes. The full list is: Afghanistan, Algeria, Bahrain, Djibouti, Egypt, Eritrea, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Malaysia, Morocco, Oman, Pakistan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, Turkey, the United Arab Emirates and Yemen. Oddly, although sixty Israelis have been taken into custody, it didn't make the list. Considering that the U.S. has stated that we are not involved in a "holy war" it is odd that we've been so lopsided with our immigration policy, especially since at least sixty Israelis have been detained in response to the September 11th attacks.

9-11: Urban Moving Systems and Detained Israelis

East Rutherford police stopped an Urban Moving Systems van on Route 3 Tuesday and detained five men inside, at least some of them company employees. The occupants said they were all Israelis. They were being detained because they are in violation of immigration regulations, and all have expressed a desire to leave the country on their own, according to an Immigration and Naturalization Service spokesman. An employee of Urban Moving Systems, who would not give his name, said the majority of his co-workers are Israelis and were joking on the day of the attacks.

All 9/11 Airports Serviced byOne Israeli Owned Company

The point of the article was that ICTS knew shoe bomber Richard Reid was dangerous, but allowed him on board a flight from Tel Aviv to Paris. Maybe they did and maybe they didn't. But the idea that an Israeli owned company had inside access to the airport used to launch an abortive terror attack brought to mind the strange message Odigo Systems, another Israeli owned company with offices near the World Trade Towers, received that warned of the impending attacks before the hijacked planes had even left the ground.

So, I went back to another story that had surfaced briefly, reported at www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=26626 about how at least one hijacker had smuggled a GUN aboard one of the hijacked planes. Even prior to 9-11, getting a gun on board a passenger plane represented a serious lapse of security. I wondered why this story of a gun was being concealed behind talk of box cutters and screwdrivers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

More indications of an Israeli false-flag operation on 9-11.



Jan 15 07:41

The Five Dancing Israelis Arrested On 9-11

On the day of the 9-11 attacks, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was asked what the attacks would mean for US-Israeli relations. His quick reply was: "It's very good…….Well, it's not good, but it will generate immediate sympathy (for Israel)"

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yet another Israeli false-flag operation. Please keep all these historical incidents in mind when evaluating Paris (or anything else that goes "bang" and is blamed on the Muslims.

CONFESSIONS OF AN EX-MOSSAD AGENT

By the end of March, the Americans were already intercepting messages broadcast by the Trojan, which was only activated during heavy communication traffic hours. Using the Trojan, the Mossad tried to make it appear that a long series of terrorist orders were being transmitted to various Libyan embassies around the world (or, as they were called by the Libyans, Peoples' Bureaus). As the Mossad had hoped, the transmissions were deciphered by the Americans and construed as ample proof that the Libyans were active sponsors of terrorism. What's more, the Americans pointed out, Mossad reports confirmed it.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yet another Israeli false-flag. In this case, Israel smuggled a radio transmitter into Tripoli, Libya, then used this transmitter to send fake radio messages to "confirm" that Gaddafi was about to order terror attacks. These messages tricked Ronald Regan into bombing Libya, intentionally aiming for Gaddafi, but missing him and killing his five-year old daughter instead.

Jan 15 07:29

Dead in the Water (Israel's attack on the USS Liberty in 1967)

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yet another case of an Israeli false-flag. Not mentioned in this particular film is that up until the moment the USS Liberty broke through the Israeli jamming and notified the US as to the true identity of their attackers, Israel was telling President Johnson that Egypt was attacking the USS Liberty. According to some reports there was a nuclear-armed strike in the air headed to Cairo, which was recalled when the deception became known.

THE LAVON AFFAIR - IS HISTORY REPEATING ITSELF?

In 1954, Israeli agents working in Egypt planted bombs in several buildings, including a United States diplomatic facility, and left evidence behind implicating Egyptian Muslims as the culprits. The ruse would have worked, had not one of the bombs detonated prematurely, allowing the Egyptians to capture and identify one of the bombers, which in turn led to the round up of an Israeli spy ring.

Some of the spies were from Israel, while others were recruited from the local Jewish population. Israel responded to the scandal with claims in the media that there was no spy ring, that it was all a hoax perpetrated by "anti-Semites".

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Another in a long history of Israeli false-flags.

Fatal Bathurst police shooting confounds local residents

Vienneau was inside his car when he was shot by plainclothes officers conducting an investigation. He had just gotten off a train from Montreal.

Police have declined to discuss the nature of that investigation.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

What has emerged is that Vienneau had just gotten off the train and was in his car ready to drive home when these men with guns ran up screaming at him to get out of the car. The police DID NOT IDENTIFY themselves as police, and Vienneau, apparently thinking these men with guns were criminals, panicked, locked his doors, and refused to move, whereupon the police shot and killed him. Tragically, Vienneau was not the man the police were looking for.

Russia Cuts Off Ukraine Gas Supply To 6 European Countries

Vladimir Putin ordered the Russian state energy giant Gazprom to cut supplies to and through Ukraine amid accusations, according to The Daily Mail, that its neighbor has been siphoning off and stealing Russian gas. Due to these "transit risks for European consumers in the territory of Ukraine," Gazprom cut gas exports to Europe by 60%, plunging the continent into an energy crisis "within hours." Perhaps explaining the explosion higher in NatGas prices (and oil) today, gas companies in Ukraine confirmed that Russia had cut off supply; and six countries reported a complete shut-off of Russian gas. The EU raged that the sudden cut-off to some of its member countries was "completely unacceptable," but Gazprom CEO Alexey Miller later added that Russia plans to shift all its natural gas flows crossing Ukraine to a route via Turkey; and Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak stated unequivocally, "the decision has been made."

DHS run police departments are using ‘ShotSpotter’ to spy on public conversations

Gun fire on the streets of Camden can be captured by ‘Shotspotter’ a series of microphones designed to detect the sound of a gunshot and pinpoint its location to within 10-feet, before alerting police.

In one of Camden’s roughest neighborhoods the police don’t want to talk about specific locations, but the Shotspotter microphones are hidden in buildings and on roof tops throughout the streets.

The technology costs between $60,000 and $100,000 a year per square mile.

A MuckRock FOIA request revealed police departments are using USAI grants otherwise known as DHS grants across the country.

Ohio Man Charged With Plotting to Attack U.S. Capitol

An Ohio man who allegedly wanted to set up an ISIS cell in the U.S. was arrested Wednesday and accused of planning to attack the U.S. Capitol. But U.S. officials told NBC News the man was dealing with a government informer working undercover the entire time and was never in a position to carry out his plan.

Christopher Lee Cornell, 20, of Green Township, near Cincinnati, was arrested after he bought two M-15 semi-automatic rifles and about 600 rounds of ammunition as the undercover operative watched, according to an FBI affidavit.

Officials said Cornell never bought any components for pipe bombs. "There was never a danger to the public," an official told NBC News.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So this is another FBI entrapment to create "terror" headlines.

Netanyahu slams Erdogan's Paris rally remarks

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu yesterday demanded the international community condemn Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's remarks on Israel's participation in Paris's anti-terrorism rally on Sunday, the Anadolu Agency reported.

Netanyahu's office quoted him telling leaders of the pro-Israel lobbying group the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC): "I think the war against terror will not succeed if it's founded on hypocrisy, and I've yet to hear any world leader condemn the comments by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, not one."

An earlier report by TRT Haber television, a Turkish state-run channel, stated that the court had already issued the warrant. The broadcaster removed the story from its website without explanation.

Turkey and Russia: CIA, Israel, France Behind the Terror Attack

Conspiracy theories are sweeping through Turkey and Russia, where government officials and political analysts are accusing the CIA, Israeli intelligence or the French people of masterminding the terrorist attacks in Paris and blaming the Muslims for the violence.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is feeding the rumor mill in Turkey, a key NATO ally, while pro-Kremlin journalists and think tank specialists are spreading anti-Western fantasies in Russia, the Financial Times reports.

"The duplicity of the West is obvious," Erdogan told reporters in the Turkish capital of Ankara on Monday. "As Muslims we have never sided with terror or massacres. Racism, hate speech, Islamophobia are behind these massacres."

Cindy McCain, wife of Arizona Senator John McCain, has been chosen national spokesperson for Blue Star Mothers of America, Inc., it was announced by the national president Judy Dorsey.

The Blue Star Mothers of America is a not for profit organization that supports members of the Armed Forces, veterans and families of fallen heroes. The group is best know for care packages that are mailed throughout the year to service men and women.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

“I don’t care about this issue.” -- Cindy McCain, on the USS Liberty

UPDATE: Open reply by Phil Tourney

Dear Blue Star Mothers (Ms. Judy Dorsey),

It is with great pride and sadness I write this letter first I thank you for keeping faith in or fallen members who gave it all for this great country we love.

My sadness is you thumbing your noses of the gallant crew of our great ship USS Liberty where as 34 of my shipmates were murdered 174 others wounded including me.You do this as a cover -up for the ZIONIST STATE of Israel shame on you all of you!

Cindy McCain and her husband are at the core of the cover-up how dare you be part of history that covers up cold blooded murder of Americans on the high seas. It is incredible how she is now the national spokesperson for Blue Star Mothers of America after her email to James Morris (included at the following URL):

Cindy McCain on the USS LIBERTY COVERUP: “I don’t care about this issue.”:

http://america-hijacked.com/2011/10/04/cindy-mccain-on-the- uss-liberty-coverup-i-dont-care-about-this-issue/

Your support for the murders of Americans by Israel is beyond reason to all of the crew and Americans that love America first not the ZIONIST STATE of Israel.

I think you should look at facts not fiction of war crimes an act of war put upon America by the ZIONIST State of Israel.

Respectfully,

Six countries reported a complete shut-off of Russian gas shipped via Ukraine today, in a sharp escalation of a struggle over energy that threatens Europe as winter sets in.

Bulgaria, Greece, Macedonia, Romania, Croatia and Turkey all reported a halt in gas shipments from Russia through Ukraine.

Croatia said it was temporarily reducing supplies to industrial customers while Bulgaria said it had enough gas for only 'for a few days' and was in a 'crisis situation'.

BEX ALERT - Ohio Man Arrested for Alleged ISIS-Inspired Plot on US Capitol, FBI Says

The FBI has arrested an Ohio man for allegedly plotting an ISIS-inspired attack on the U.S. Capitol, where he hoped to set off a series of bombs aimed at lawmakers, whom he allegedly considered enemies.

Christopher Lee Cornell, 20, of Green Township, was arrested today on charges of attempting to kill a U.S. government official, authorities said.

According to government documents, he allegedly planned to detonate pipe bombs at the national landmark and open fire on any employees and officials fleeing after the explosions.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And we know how this will end. It will turn out an FBI undercover informant talked this patsy into agreeing to the plot and the case will be tossed out of court as obvious entrapment, after generating the terror headlines the US Government needs.

CTB Locker and Critroni Ransomware Information Guide and FAQ

CTB Locker (Curve-Tor-Bitcoin Locker), otherwise known as Critroni, is a file-encrypting ransomware infection that was released in the middle of July 2014 that targets all versions of Windows including Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8. Just like other file encrypting malware, the media continues to affiliate this infection with CryptoLocker when in fact this appears to have been developed by a different group using new technologies such as elliptical curve cryptography and the malware communicating with the Command and Control server over TOR. As discovered by Kafeine, this malware also appears to be part of a kit being sold online for $3,000 USD, which includes support in getting it up and running. With that said, expect to see other ransomware released using this kit, but possibly with different interfaces.

More on all that later. Let us now turn our gaze to the doings of the day; brought to you and carefully orchestrated by the same people who have been the Hoodoo Cowboys for a good long spell.

I’m not Charlie . . . I’m Maurice Sinet, fired by Charlie for anti-semitism

80-year-old Maurice Sinet, political cartoonist with Charlie Hebdo for 20 years, was fired in 2009 for his anti-Semitic cartoons mocking the relationship of former French President Sarkozy’s son with a wealthy Jewish woman.

Maurice Sinet, known to the world as Siné, faced charges of “inciting racial hatred” for a column he wrote in July 2009. “L’affaire Sine,” followed the engagement of Jean Sarkozy to Jessica Sebaoun-Darty, the Jewish heiress of a major consumer electronics company, the Darty Group. Commenting on rumours that Jean intended to convert from Catholicism to Judaism (Jessica’s religion) for social success, Siné quipped, “He’ll go a long way in life, that little lad.”

Lawsuit says Caltech Provost andothers ignored Israeli spying and thenretaliated against whistleblower

Following is a deeply disturbing excerpt from a civil lawsuit filed by a Caltech professor against Caltech, often named the world’s top research university. Caltech’s official name is the California Institute of Technology.

According to the lawsuit, a small coterie of Caltech professors and administrators ignored Israeli spying and theft of taxpayer-funded U.S. technology and then retaliated against the professor for reporting it.

Caltech Provost Edward Stolper, who has ties to Israel and received an honorary degree from one of its universities, seems to have been one of those leading the charge.

New info confirms CIA was behind Paris attack

“We have been told by the mainstream media, the Western media, that a Yemeni reporter has claimed that he had interviewed Kouachi who was responsible for the Paris attack, or one of those who were responsible,” she said.

“And he had ties with ‘the underwear bomber’, ‘the underwear bomber’ who was held responsible for wanting to blow up an airliner at Christmas in 2009,” Ulrich added.

Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab was convicted of attempting to detonate plastic explosives hidden in his underwear while on board Northwest Airlines Flight 253, en route from Amsterdam to Detroit, Michigan.

“Well, it so happens that the mainstream media here is so busy turning up this information that they turned to forget the very information they gave us in the first place. For example, in 2012, we were told that ‘the underwear bomber’ was in fact working with the CIA intelligence and with the Saudis,” she pointed out.

Russia President Not Welcome at Auschwitz Liberation Anniversary

The standard practice for an event such as this would be for the host country to send out formal invitations.

However, specifically to avoid having to send a formal invitation to Russia president Poland did not send out invitations to anyone.

Instead she sent out mere notifications that event is going to take place.

After asking for a clarification whether it is invited or not Russia correctly concluded it is not welcome by the host country.

CIA on Trial in Virginia for Planting Nuke Evidence in Iran

The story is this. The CIA drew up plans for a key part of a nuclear bomb (what a CIA officer on Wednesday described in his testimony as "the crown jewels" of a nuclear weapons program), inserted flaws in the plans, and then had a Russian give those flawed plans to Iran.

During the trial on Wednesday morning, the prosecution's witnesses made clear both that aiding Iran in developing a part of a bomb would be illegal under U.S. export control laws, and that they were aware at the time that there was the possibility of what they were doing constituting just such aid.

So, why do it?

‘Zionism needs anti-Semitism to justify crimes’

The London-based Middle East expert believes that Israel itself is spreading anti-Semitism in an attempt to justify its atrocities and violations of the international law.

Watch your language! (even when speaking the undeniable truth)

BBC Watch is linked to CiF Watch, which is “dedicated to monitoring antisemitism and combating the assault on Israel’s legitimacy”. And to CAMERA. All three have the same two editors.

Hadar Sela is Managing Editor. She “has lived in Israel for over three decades… and has written pre-emptive reports on several anti-Israel campaigns, including the flotillas and the Global March to Jerusalem in March 2012”.

Funny, I thought the flotillas were bringing humanitarian aid to the desperate civilians cruelly imprisoned, blockaded and bombarded in the tiny enclave of Gaza. How is that deemed to be anti-Israel unless you’re a paranoid Zionist or one of the mindless criminal thugs imposing the blockade?

The other is Adam Levick, also Managing Editor of CiF Watch. He “made aliyah” in 2009. Aliya is moving your home to Israel. Since when did we or our national broadcaster take orders from a couple of Israelis?

Why America Keeps Losing Its Wars

In the aftermath of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, the president asked Congress for a Declaration of War, got it, and began to steel the nation for the sacrifices necessary for victory. In the aftermath of September 11, 2001, the president cowed Congress into ceding its war-making powers (in the form of an authorization for the use of military force), sent the military into indecisive action in Afghanistan, declared war on a country uninvolved in the 9/11 attacks (Iraq), and sent the American people to shop.

Well into its second decade, the undeclared and undefined “Global War on Terror” has yet to gain any measure of security for America’s profligate expenditure of lives and treasure.

The framers of the U.S. Constitution, establishing our country as a republic, wanted no part of a system that codified the executive as the decider of war and peace.

FROM THOSE WONDERFUL FOLKS WHO BROUGHT YOU THE INQUISITION!

Christopher Columbus

Columbus, having quit the profession of slave trading to become an explorer, sailed for the new world in 1492. Within hours of landing, Columbus had kidnapped 6 natives in order to "christianize" them and make them his servants. Columbus incorrectly reported that the inhabitants of the New World had no religion. After planting a cross, Columbus would say the "Requerimiento", a prayer that officially made the newly found lands Catholic. Since nobody present objected (the natives did not speak latin), the new world became officially the domain of the Catholic church.

Marching Towards Disaster: What’s Really Behind The U.S. Push In The Asia-Pacific?

On the sidelines of the Group of Twenty (G20) Summit in Brisbane, US President Barack H. Obama delivered a keynote speech to diplomats, policymakers, faculty members, and students at the University of Queensland on the United States of America’s foreign policy and Obama’s so-called “Asian pivot” or “pivot to Asia.”

In 2013, a report by Brian Andrews and Kurt Campbell for the British think-tank Chatham House described Washington’s redeployment efforts in the Asia-Pacific region like this: “The United States government is in the early stages of a substantial national project: reorienting significant elements of its foreign policy towards the Asia-Pacific region and encouraging many of its partners outside the region to do the same.”

Rising anti-Semitism? One in eight Brits think Jews use Holocaust to get sympathy

Nearly half of Britons hold anti-Semitic views, a survey has revealed. It also found that one in eight Brits surveyed (13 percent) thought Jews used talking about the Holocaust to get sympathy.

A YouGov poll asked 3,411 UK adults about their attitudes toward UK Jewish citizens. It found that 45 percent polled believed at least one anti-Semitic view presented to them was “definitely or probably true.”

Many found clichés and stereotypes about Jews to be true. One in four believed Jewish people “chase money more than others,” while one in six people felt Jews thought they were better than other people and had too much power in the media.

The Campaign Against Anti-Semitism (CAA), which commissioned the study, said Britain was at a “tipping point” in its Annual Anti-Semitism Barometer report.

The Spectacular Media Failure on Charlie Hebdo

A core tenet of journalism is answering the question “why.” It’s the media’s duty to explain “why” an event happened so that readers will actually understand what they’re reading. Leave out the “why” and then assumptions and stereotypes fill in the blank, always readily supplied by politicians whose ridiculous answers are left unquestioned by the corporate media.

Because the real “why” was unexplained in the Charlie Hebdo massacre, an obviously false culprit was created, leading to a moronic national discussion in the U.S. media about whether Islam was “inherently” violent.

For the media to even pose this question either betrays a blinding ignorance about the Middle East and Islam, or a conscious willingness to manipulate public sentiment by only interviewing so-called experts who believe such nonsense.

“Boots On The Ground”? Obama To Seek Authorization For Military Force Against ISIS

Having unveiled his non-boots-on-the-ground strategy in September, President Obama’s “promise” was quickly proved fragile when General Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, indicated to the House of Representatives armed services committee that the strength of ISIS relative to the Iraqi army may be such that he would recommend abandoning Obama’s oft-repeated pledge against returning US ground troops to combat in Iraq. It seems another promise is about to be broken as Bloomberg reports Senator John Cornyn said President Obama told congressional leaders during meeting today at White House he would seek authorization for military force on Islamic State. Boehner’s office, in separate statement after meeting, said Republicans would work with him to build support.

First 'Charlie Hebdo' issue since attack sells out

The first edition of Charlie Hebdo since terror attacks in Paris last week left 17 people dead sold out at newsstands across France shortly after going on sale Wednesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Wow! That is really impressive when you think about it. One week ago, Charlie Hebdo was broke, asking for donations, and struggling to publish less than 50,000 copies of their magazine. Then their offices were attacked, their staff severely reduced, the survivors traumatized, and here we are just one week later with 3 million printed magazines in 16 languages all delivered to the newstands around the world?

Anyone who has ever worked in publishing knows this is an impossible feat. The lead time for content creation, translation into 16 languages, layout for those 16 versions, adding of additional printing resources, and supply chain time, all suggest this new issue had to be in production before last week's attack!

Play Israeli Youths’ Hilarious New “Push the Bibi” Video Game!

In the age of the political gaffe, how could Israeli PM Bibi Netanyahu’s now-notorious push to the front of the memorial march in Paris last week not turn heads? Fellow Israelis did a collective facepalm and chided him for presenting “the pushy Israeli, the impolite Israeli” to the world during a moment of global mourning for the Charlie Hebdo cartoonists and hostages killed in Paris.

But few went as far as the as-yet-unnamed young creators of “Push the Bibi,” a fun-poking arcade-style game that lets you navigate the Prime Minister to the front of the march. Featuring an image of Bibi wearing a crown, flanked by an Israeli and French flag, the game feels a little like midtown Manhattan during rush hour, but with a layer of bad PR. If your Bibi reaches the coveted spot between Angela Merkel and Ibrahim Keita, the game announces “Game over! Don’t try again.”

The Perfect Storm for Wall Street Banks

JPMorgan Chase reported 2014 fourth quarter earnings this morning, missing analyst estimates. Analysts had expected $1.31 per share while the actual number came in at $1.19. Listening to the conference call this morning, there was the impression that the $1.19 would have been worse had the bank not released loan loss reserves in a number of business areas.

Jamie Dimon, CEO of JPMorgan Chase, was back to characterizing the bank’s P&L as the “fortress balance sheet.” The London Whale credit derivatives traders almost blew up the fortress in 2012 and the markets are becoming skeptical as to just how much visibility there is on energy and emerging market loans souring on the books of the mega Wall Street banks.

The Importance of Being Angry

Anger is a vitally important evolutionary gift and without it we are perpetual victims. Anger has two primary evolutionary functions: to let us know when we are being threatened or attacked (whether by a more 'subtle' abuse or in an explicitly violent manner) while also giving us the power to respond effectively to this threat/attack.

The individual who is not afraid to be angry, will respond immediately, powerfully and, in virtually all cases, nonviolently to any threat or attack, warding off the attacking individual, for example, simply by clearly showing their anger (which is, of course, a clear defence in itself, and watching a snarling dog or wolf will readily convince you of the effectiveness of this form of defence).

For Sale To The Highest Bidder – How Middle Eastern Governments Are Buying Off The US Political Process

The quaint notion that the U.S. political system remotely resembles either a Republic or a Democracy should have been abandoned long ago. Any lingering illusions were surely extinguished last year, when an academic study empirically proved that the USA is nothing more than a corrupt oligarchy.

While having super rich and powerful American oligarchs running the show is one thing, the reality of the situation is actually far worse. Thanks to a recent article in Vice, we now know that foreign governments are aggressively employing their extraordinary wealth to advance their interests here on American soil. In many cases, these are autocratic regimes, which not only do not care about the best interests of the nation, they are often caught actively funding ISIS and even perpetuating 9/11 itself. Here are some excerpts from the piece:
