Why Not Al Franken for President in 2016?

Democratic strategist Donna Brazile listed independent senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Democratic senator Al Franken of Minnesota as potential Democratic candidates who could challenge Hillary Clinton for the presidential nomination in 2016

(*flashback article from November 16, 2014 submitted today , in response to the recent epiphany that Franken revealed in his popular Bush era expose' , 'Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them' , that he recieved the call from Ed Kotch not to go to work on 9/11 , or what Franken refered to as; The Jew Call . )

Presstitutes At Their Work

The Western media has only two tools. One is the outrageous lie. This overused tool no longer works, except on dumbshit Americans.

The pinpoint accuracy of the Russian cruise missiles and air attacks has the Pentagon shaking in its boots. But according to the Western presstitutes the Russian missiles fell out of the sky over Iran and never made it to their ISIS targets.

Hillary’s Lies and the Benghazi Attack

Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi testimony on Thursday certainly confirmed suspicions that she knew that the September 11, 2012 attack on the US Consulate was not a spontaneous protest by individuals enraged by an anti-Muslim video. Rather, as the emails she fought so fiercely to protect from public disclosure reveal, the attack was a pre-planned operation, involving fore- knowledge by the assailants of the whereabouts of Ambassador Christopher Stevens, among other details.

Clinton and the Obama Administration had attempted to place the blame for the attack, which resulted in the deaths of Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans, on an unplanned protest, a “spontaneous mob.”

US Imperial Strategy in Disarray. Russia’s Intervention has Potential Global Implications

Russia’s intervention has changed the dynamic in Syria and the region with potential global implications. Washington is reeling, stumped about what to do next.

Kerry’s Friday power play meeting with his Russian, Turkish and Saudi counterparts in Vienna changed nothing. Nor will other discussions he plans. Russia and Washington agree to disagree. Putin’s arm won’t be twisted.

Over 3% of the population of Montenegro took to the streets in a protest organized by the opposition parties that opposed secession from Belgrade in 2006. It began peacefully but scenes of violence followed when protesters and police clashed.

At one point protesters - no doubt thinking of the 2000 'Bulldozer Revolution' in Serbia and the 2014 Maidan overthrow in Kiev - were set on storming the parliament building. The leader of the opposition Andrija Mandi? was arrested and over 40 people were injured.

Bush 41: Squanderer of Reagan Legacy Stunned by Son’s Rejection by Anti-Establishment Base

Former President George Bush, 91 and frail, is straining to understand an election season that has, for his son and the Republican Party, lurched sharply and stunningly off script. And he is often bewildered by what he sees.

“I’m getting old,” he tells friends, appraising today’s politics, “at just the right time.”

How regime changers use "nonviolent" tactics in a typical regime change operation.

The architects of regime change insist on the use of “nonviolent” tactics specifically because they pose a much thornier problem for the authorities than an outright revolt. If the government faces an armed uprising, it knows exactly what to do: put it down. But when the youth of the nation parades around in matching T-shirts (that have been mysteriously shipped in from abroad) shouting deliberately anodyne, aspirational slogans, and the entire happening takes on the air of a festival, then the government's ability to maintain public order gradually melts away.

When the conditions are right, the regime changers fly in the mercenaries with the sniper rifles, carry out a public massacre, and blame it on the government. These snipers appeared in Egypt in 2011 during the effort to topple Hosni Mubarak. They also appeared in Vilnius in 1991 and in Moscow in 1993. In Tunisia in 2011 they actually got detained. They had Swedish passports and Northern European faces. They said that they were there to hunt wild boar—with sniper rifles, in Tunis.

Let us not allow ourselves to be misled: all three types of political technologies the US uses against the rest of the world are types of warfare—hybrid warfare—and “nonviolent warfare” is an oxymoron. “Nonviolence” is a misnomer; with respect to Orange Revolutions, the correct term is “delayed use of violence.”

Let’s stop the stupid flag waving! (Saker rant)

At the end of the day, I suppose that it all boils down to this: do we trust Putin and the men around him. I do. Completely. But all that flag-waving and high-fiving is totally premature and, frankly, indecent. Just in the last couple of days, an Iranian general and a senior Hezbollah commander have died and the best way to honor them is not to act like Dubya did and not to declare “mission accomplished” when there is a long and hard struggle ahead. The best way to honor these men is to recognize the heroic nature and great difficulty of their struggle.

Right now, it could go either way. In theory, Daesh could break under pressure and basically collapse. This is possible, but this is not what I expect will happen. I expect Daesh to show flexibility and adapt to the new environment at which point the Russians will have to bring in more forces (although a Russian ground offensive is not on the table). As for the Iranians, they cannot afford to allow Daesh to prevail, so if the Syrian military continues to be over-extended and lacking supplies, they will have to move in. If that happens, the Americans and their Arab stooges in the region will go ballistic. So make no mistake, there next couple of weeks will be extremely dangerous.

Hebron activist showed Israel’s crimes to the world

Hebron resident and anti-occupation activist Hashem al-Azzeh died Wednesday after inhaling tear gas fired by Israeli forces.

Al-Azzeh lived in a part of Hebron that was frequently attacked by Israeli settlers.

One incident, al-Azzeh’s own teeth were smashed when settlers attacked his home, ransacking it and destroying the furniture. Al-Azzeh’s wife was assaulted by settlers twice while she was pregnant in her first and second trimesters. She miscarried both times.

'U.S. Presidential Candidate Forum' to take place in Jerusalem, Israel on November 3rd.

A gaggle of right-wing, Jewish and Zionist groups from Israel and America are hosting an international event in Jerusalem on Nov. 3-4th. There is no word on if any actual America presidential candidates actually RSVP'd or have confirmed an appearance. I highly doubt it since none are listed. The event does have a number of other speakers scheduled that day, including several 'Members of the European Parliament.' The group's website states "The co-organizers believe that the Summit event in Jerusalem, Israel, will provide a strategic platform for communicating with leading voices and key stakeholders about foreign policy, US-Israel relations, Europe-Israel relations, the present threats to the West, Israel, and our common civilization based on the foundation of the rule of law - protecting life, liberty and property."

French journalist attacked by far-right Jewish extremists trying to storm offices of national news agency

A leading French journalist has been assaulted by pro-Israel vigilantes as a mob tried to storm the offices of the country’s national news agency in Paris. David Perrotin, who currently writes for the news site BuzzFeed, was placed under protection after being attacked by around 12 masked men brandishing batons on Thursday night. All were linked to the Jewish Defence League (JDL), a notoriously violent group that was protesting against Agence France Presse’s (AFP) coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The assassination of Ron Brown

Here is what we know for sure about Ron Brown’s last days.

To protect his son Michael from prison, Ron Brown threatens to expose the White House’s yet unrevealed Asian fund-raising scheme, in which Brown played a major role.

Just weeks before his death, Brown starts going to church for the first time in his life. He is scared for his life and that of his confidante, Nolanda Hill.

The Croatian government insists on a Dubrovnik stop an unprecedented 36 hours before Brown’s scheduled landing.

The Enron executives take their own plane.

The Air Force calls the pilot’s nearly two-mile deviation into a Croatian hillside “inexplicable.” No aircraft has ever drifted inland before at that airport. The AWACS data suggest sabotage of the ground-based navigation system, a line of inquiry that the Air Force is not allowed to pursue.

Trey Gowdy Just Elected Hillary Clinton President

What happened on the Hill Thursday echoed the famous scene from All the President's Men, when super-source Deep Throat scolds reporter Bob Woodward for botching a story about hated Nixon henchman H.R. Haldeman.

"You let Haldeman slip away," says Deep Throat.

"Yes," answers a sheepish Woodward.

"You've done worse than let Haldeman slip away. You've got people feeling sorry for him. I didn't think that was possible."

With Thursday's interminable, pointless, haranguing, disorganized, utterly amateurish attempt at a smear job, the Republicans and their tenth-rate congressional attack schnauzer, South Carolina's Trey Gowdy, got people feeling sorry for Hillary Clinton. Over the course of 11 long hours, they made the most eloquent argument for a Hillary Clinton presidency yet offered by anyone, including Clinton herself.

Americans Less Concerned About Climate Change than Reptiles, Tornadoes, Credit Card Fraud, Cyber-Terrorism, Bio-Warfare, Nuclear War, Mass Surveillance, Economic Collapse or Obamacare

A poll this month by Chapman University shows that we are more concerned about government corruption, mass surveillance, cyber-terrorism, bio-warfare, identity theft, running out of money, economic collapse, credit card fraud, Obamacare, illness, nuclear attack, meltdowns and civil unrest and tornadoes than global warming:

Probably those several record-setting winters that started arriving right after the global warming cult predicted that snowfalls are now a thing of the past (UK Independent Headline, March 20l 2000) has something to do with the lack of concern.

FLASHBACK 2012 - New Explosive Benghazi Allegations: CIA Operators Told to ‘Stand Down’ During Attack As 3 Urgent Requests for Military Back-Up Were Denied

Explosive new allegations surrounding the Benghazi attack emerged this morning, with FOX News’ Jennifer Griffin reporting that sources have confirmed that three urgent requests for military assistance sent from the CIA annex were all denied; CIA operators were apparently told to “stand down” rather than respond when shots were heard around 9:40 p.m. on September 11. Following the alleged developments, Charles Woods, father of ex-Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods who was killed in the attack, passionately responded to this new information on Glenn Beck’s radio program (see his comments at the end of the article).

Arch-Neocon PNAC Founder Bill Kristol Shilling for Ben Carson & Attacking Trump

Arch neocon Zionist Bill Kristol, publisher of the war-mongerng rag 'The Weekly Standard' and co-founder of Project for the New American Century, (PNAC), is aggressively attacking Donald Trump at every chance he gets. PNAC is the group that called for a 'new Pearl Harbor' to justify their empirical foreign policy ideals, less than one year prior to 9/11. Kristol is also shilling for pro-vaccine warmonger Dr. Ben Carson, who is the 2015 version of black Republican gatekeeper Alan Keyes. Keyes, you might recall, ran against populist America-first candidate Buchanan in the 1996 and 2000 GOP presidential Primaries, and often viciously attacked Pat Buchanan, even saying that Pat "had a black heart." Not coincidentally, Alan Keyes was Bill Kristol's college roommate, and Kristol helped run Keyes first Senate campaign. Ben Carson is indeed the 2015 version of Alan Keyes, and Kristol is their head cheerleader. There is nothing new under the sun.

Will Obama Name This Big Pharma Insider as Head of the FDA?

Americans already pay more for pharmaceutical drugs than almost any other nation, and we also take the lion’s share of them, though our overall health as a nation is relatively poor.
Do we really need a Big Pharma insider as the chief of the US Food and Drug Administration (USFDA)? That is just what may happen.
President Obama has nominated Dr. Robert Califf, a doctor described as “the ultimate industry insider” to this position. According to the New York Times, Dr. Califf “has deeper ties to the pharmaceutical industry than any F.D.A. commissioner in recent memory.” He has an extensive record of close collaboration with pharmaceutical giants, and recently described regulation as a “barrier,” not a safeguard for public health.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were I a betting person, I would absolutely bet on this happening, because the relationship between the pharmaceutical companies and the leadership of the FDA has become absolutely incestuous, and it's all about bringing in windfall profits, many times at the heavy, and terrible, cost to public health.

An excerpt from Al Franken's bestselling book Lies And The Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair And Balanced Look At The Right (Dutton Publishing; 2003):

Six months after 9/11, the Gallup Poll of Islamic Countries found that an overwhelming majority of those surveyed believed the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon had not been the works of Arabs. Well-educated Egyptians and Saudis believed that the Israelis were behind the murder of three thousand innocents on 9/11, in large part because of articles in their countries' official state newspapers. One of the widely disseminated stories was that no Jews died in the collapse of the Trade Towers because they had received calls telling them not to go to work that day.

To tell you the truth, I got the Jew call. I had an office in the Trade Center where I used to do most of my writing. The call came from former New York mayor Ed Koch. "Al," he told me, "don't go to work on the twenty-third day of Elul." (September 11)

‘Turning a blind eye’: Court sides with government on NSA surveillance, dismisses ACLU challenge

A federal district court judge in Virginia has dismissing a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union that challenged the National Security Agency’s mass interception and surveillance of Americans’ communications.

Siding with the government, the judge ruled Friday that the nine plaintiffs in the case had not plausibly alleged that their communications were being monitored by the NSA.

“Plaintiff’s standing argument boils down to suppositions about how Upstream surveillance must operate in order to achieve the government’s stated goals,” wrote US District Judge T. S. Ellis in his ruling. “In a case like this, plaintiffs necessarily rely on probabilities and speculation because most facts about Upstream surveillance remain classified, and hence plaintiffs see through a glass darkly.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One must then speculate on what "juicy" information NSA has about Judge Ellis, to have made that ruling.

Federal court drops ACLU case against NSA snooping

A US federal district court has rejected a case by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) against the National Security Agency (NSA) over the latter’s mass surveillance program.

Lawyers for the plaintiffs had argued that the surveillance program was harmful, despite the NSA’s silence on it in court.

“The NSA’s mass surveillance violates our clients’ constitutional rights to privacy, freedom of speech, and freedom of association, and it poses a grave threat to a free internet and a free society,” said Ashley Gorski, a staff attorney with the ACLU national security project. “The private communications of innocent people don’t belong in government hands.”

Yet, the judge in the case, TS Ellis III, said the suit relied on “the subjective fear of surveillance”, because the NSA did not admit to having collected any of the information it was alleged to have collected by the ACLU, according to the Guardian.

Vote to proceed involving self-governing by Native Hawaiians

A federal judge ruled Friday that an election can go forward to choose delegates to draft a document allowing Native Hawaiians to govern themselves.

U.S. District Court Judge J. Michael Seabright explained the election is a private poll — not one run by the state — as he denied a motion for a preliminary injunction to stop the vote set for next month.

Native Hawaiians are the last remaining indigenous group in the U.S. that hasn't been allowed to establish its own government.

Pakistan PM: We Can’t Keep Killing Taliban if We Want Peace Talks

Speaking during his visit to the United States, Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said that in a recent conversation with Afghan President Ghani had informed him that it was unreasonable to simultaneously expect Pakistan to kill every Taliban they see and try to court the Taliban to revive stalled peace talks.

Sharif’s comments were clearly a reference to repeated calls from the US and Afghan governments to “do more” in wiping out the Taliban militarily as well as their ongoing haranguing of the Pakistani government to do something to get the Taliban to return to the peace talks, which ended back when Afghan officials revealed Taliban leader Mullah Omar was dead.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sharif is entirely correct on this; one cannot consistently murder the opposition, then expect them to come to the negotiating table in good faith.

What the US government has been asking the Pakistani government to do is nonsensical in the extreme. Of course, logic and US foreign policy have not had a good, ongoing relationship for many decades now.

And forgive me, but has anyone ever mentioned this very clear bit logic to Prime Minister Netanyahu in Israel?!?

Report: Iraq Authorizes Russia to Strike ISIS Convoys

According to a statement from Iraq’s Defense Committee leader Hakim al-Zamli, the government has formally authorized Russia to carry out airstrikes against ISIS convoys that have crossed into Iraqi territory from Syria, a move he says is key to weakening supply lines.

The move comes amid a solid week of US officials warning Russia away from any involvement in Iraq, and threats to punish Iraq if they dared to accept any help from Russia, insisting Iraq had to choose between the two potential partners in the war.

Looks like Iraq has just chosen its partner for its very own war on terror; and that partner is NOT the United States of America!!

FBI Agents Accused Of Torturing U.S. Citizen Abroad Can't Be Sued

Federal agents who illegally detain, interrogate and torture American citizens abroad can't be held accountable for violating the Constitution.

A divided federal appeals court on Friday tossed the lawsuit of a U.S. citizen who claimed the FBI trampled his rights for four months across three African countries while he was traveling overseas.

In so many words, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled that the man, Amir Meshal, couldn't sue the federal government for such violations, and punted the issue to someone else.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Welcome to Amerika; the land of the cowed; the home of the surveilled; and the country which can torture its citizens overseas with utterly no legal repercussions at home.

People with skills and kids, please get out of this country before it is too late; the window for an exit is closing by the day.

FBI Director Blames Crime On Police Misconduct Videos

Police anxiety in the era of ever-present cellphone cameras and viral videos partly explains why violent crime has risen in several large U.S. cities this year, FBI Director James Comey said Friday.

Comey told several hundred students during a forum at the University of Chicago Law School that it's critical to do more to address a widening gulf between law enforcement and citizens in many communities, particularly African-Americans.

He said while there likely are multiple factors behind the spike in violence in cities, including Chicago, officers and others nationwide have told him they see "the era of viral videos" as a link.

"I don't know whether this explains it entirely, but I do have a strong sense that some part of the explanation is a chill wind blowing through American law enforcement over the last year, and that wind is surely changing behavior," Comey said.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, Mr. Comey: you are "blaming the messenger", and in essence saying that the filming of police brutality (particularly against American minorities), is causing a rise in crime?!?

Sir, forgive me, but have you lost your reality licence, to make such a claim?!?

The massive grinding poverty, which creates the perfect storm for crime in many of our inner cities, is directly attributable to the massive offshoring/outsourcing of those jobs which once gave this country both a middle class and a sense of pride. Taking a look at the burned out, scorched, ruined communities in places like Chicago and Detroit, it is hardly a wonder that crime has escalated in these communities. When dreams die hard, and hopelessness just wraps around people like a shroud, they get angry; anger leads to desperation, and desperation leads to crime.

When cops brutalize innocents, it is because they believe they can do it with impunity and get away with it; so precisely where, sir, does that attitude come from?

From State and Federal authorities, perhaps?!? Is there an implicit understanding that people who might, just possibly, have legitimate grievances, be beaten, tasered, or shot (sometimes dead) into submission, as an example for the others, and that is just fine with State and Federal officials?!?

And then, there is the aggravating factor of training by the Israeli military of our police. Mr. Comey, do you realize that when former, or current, IDF members train our police, they train them to behave precisely toward American citizens as they do to the Palestinians?!?
The entire concept of de-escalation is completely foreign to them.

So please, let us not blame the messengers here; let's blame a culture of police violence which is that absolute antithesis of the concept of "to protect and serve", and change it. THAT, sir, is what has to happen, along with providing an economy where people can have the dignity of work.

OF THE LIARS, BY THE LIARS, AND FOR THE LIARS

Let's start with some basic concepts. You live in an age of lies. Every day of your life you are literally being drowned in lies. Lies by government. Lies by advertisers. Lies by the corporate media.

Truth has become such a valuable commodity that the government is economizing it!

Liars, meaning good convincing liars (i.e. sociopaths, who evince no guilt when they lie) , lie because they are able to get what they want from people, especially if those people are conditioned from childhood to tell and to believe that others will tell the truth.

It may seem that I am stating the obvious, but the point I want to make is that all ruling power is, is the willingness and ability to do things the ruled may not, or have been conditioned to believe they cannot do.

You are taught not to steal, yet government reserves to itself the right to steal, obfuscating the theft with words like excise, confiscation, pillage, taxation, and in the extreme, conquest.

In the first hour he covers in detail: The ongoing problems of nuclear waste storage; What nuclear waste actually consists of, and The Wigner Effect. In hour number two he is joined by special guest co-host Christina Consolo aka RadChick. Christina covers Wigner a little more in depth, and then her and Popeye delve into the current situation with the ongoing nuclear clusterf**k that is the Fukushima Daiichi Nuke Facility. One of the most dire problems at the moment is the massive amounts of radioactive groundwater now seeping up into the plant and the surrounding land, which they cover in depth. In the last section of the show the two of them offer hope with solutions for what seems to be a no win situation.

LOCKHEED MARTIN, BOEING RALLY AROUND SAUDI ARABIA, WAVE OFF HUMANITARIAN CONCERNS

Representatives from two major defense contractors whose advanced weaponry is being used in the Saudi Arabia-led bombing campaign that has killed scores of civilians in Yemen were quick to defend the human rights record of the Persian Gulf kingdom in a panel discussion held last week in Washington, D.C.

Ronald L. Perrilloux Jr., an executive with Lockheed Martin, complained of an atmosphere of “hostile media reports” shaping the views of Congress, most of which, he said, are “patently false.”

“Another significant irritant,” Perrilloux said, “is the application of human rights laws” toward U.S. allies in the Middle East, including Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and the United Arab Emirates. Perrilloux argued that these countries, despite being “better partners to us than some of our NATO allies,” were being unfairly judged compared to Chinese human rights abuses.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is painfully apparent that Ronald L. Perrilloux Jr., and Jeffrey Kohler, collectively, have the morals of a dead tree stump, in the way that they try to make the human rights issues in Yemen (and in Saudi Arabia) just go away, in their "profit uber alles" rants.

I would like to politely remind them of the true narrative in both countries.

Yemen threw out their US-backed puppet, Al-Hadi, as he had offered absolutely no real solutions to the grinding poverty, corruption, and lack of transparency in government.

And I would like to remind Mssrs. Kohler and Perrilloux that when the last Yemenite "election" was held, the only name on the ballot was that of Al-Hadi. Democracy in action, right, gentlemen?!?

The Saudis, militarily enabled by the US have attacked Yemen to attempt to get the rebels out, and re-establish the Al-Hadi regime.

As of August 24th of this year, as reported by Mondoweiss:

"Approximately 4,500 people, many civilians, have been killed in Yemen since the Saudi-led coalition began bombing 150 days ago, according to the UN. 23,000 more have been wounded.

An average of 30 people have been killed in Yemen every single day since the beginning of the war on March 26, which pits a US-backed coalition of Middle Eastern nations and forces loyal to President Abd Rabbuh Mansur Hadi against Iran-backed Houthi rebels and fighters loyal to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh.

UNICEF estimates nearly 400 children have been killed and over 600 injured in the past four months in the country, the poorest in the Middle East."

The Saudis have hit schools, hospitals, and homes, indiscriminately. As reported by Mother Jones on 28 September, 2015:

"Saudi Arabia, backed by the United States, the United Kingdom, and a coalition of Arab nations, has been bombing Yemen for several months in support of the Yemeni government. The Saudi-led coalition has been fighting since March, when Houthi rebels from northern Yemen ousted President Abd Rabu Mansour Hadi. While Saudi Arabia claims that it is targeting Houthi fighters and military installations, human rights groups and the United Nations have found the coalition's air campaign has mostly affected civilians. Since March, more than 2,000 civilians have died and another 4,000 have been injured, most of them killed in the air campaign, according to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights. A new UN report states that 86 percent of casualties in the ongoing violence have been civilians."

Surely, THIS must be "... that type of cooperation and facilitating and helping them with the gaps..." which Mr. Kohler so evangelically praises.

Now, let's bop on over to Saudi Arabia, shall we, and to their sterling human rights record.

As reported by CNN on 14 September 2015:

"On September 14, local media reported that an appeals court and Saudi Arabia's Supreme Court had upheld the death sentence of Ali al-Nimr for participating in protests four years ago. He was 16 at the time. Today, he awaits the execution of his sentence, which stipulates that al-Nimr should be beheaded and that his headless body should be strung up for public display.

Among the "crimes" for which al-Nimr was convicted were "breaking allegiance with the ruler," "going out to a number of marches, demonstrations, and gatherings against the state and repeating some chants against the state," and using his cell phone to incite demonstrations. He was also accused of sheltering men wanted by police, helping wanted men avoid police raids, and attacking police with Molotov cocktails and rocks, although prosecutors offered no clear details of injuries to police officers. Al-Nimr denied the charges and told the court that security officials coerced a "confession."

Saudi Arabia is one of only a handful of countries in the world known to maintain the death penalty for people who allegedly committed crimes as children.* So there was nothing to stop Saudi authorities from bringing al-Nimr to trial before its notorious terrorism court, which sentenced him to death in May 2014.

True, Saudi Arabia has ratified international treaties that prohibit executing anyone for offenses committed when they were under 18. Yet despite this obligation, under the Saudi system, someone who exhibits physical signs of puberty can be tried as an adult. In January 2013, Saudi Arabia executed a Sri Lankan domestic worker convicted of murdering a newborn when she was 17, and in March of the same year authorities executed two Saudi men convicted of committing armed robbery before they turned 18.

And al-Nimr is far from alone. In fact, he's part of a rising trend. Saudi Arabia has one of the highest known execution rates in the world and so far this year, it has executed 135 people. Saudi diplomats have been trying to deflect criticism of the country's soaring execution rate. In September, the country's permanent representative to the United Nations in Geneva dismissed the criticism as "protecting the rights of the killer."

In fact, just under half of all executions in Saudi Arabia in any given year are not for murder, but for nonviolent drug crimes or even occasionally for dubious "crimes" such as sorcery. And those accused of serious crimes don't always get fair trials. Al-Nimr's case is a prime example."

So, in conclusion, gentlemen, the US government is in bed with the Saudi government in order for your companies to make money with weapons; to suppress the revolt in Yemen; crush any human rights protests in Saudi Arabia; and attempt to destabilize Saudi Arabia's regional arch enemy, Iran. That is how the world works, and I understand this.

But to essentially dismiss the human rights aspects of the Saudi invasion of Yemen, coupled with the Saudi government's suppression of its own people, demonstrates, clearly, that this government and administration have no moral core whatsoever, and are operating from a "the ends justify the means" policy.

And that kind of attitude can create unintended consequences, culminating in a whup-ass blowback.

Yes, Donald Trump can win, but here’s what it will take

No modern campaign has started as quickly or with as much drama as Trump’s. With 15 months to go before the 2016 vote, no one can tell you what’s going to happen. But with the largest audience in U.S. primary history watching the first Republican presidential debate, there is obviously interest in this election. And one thing is for sure: Trump is not going away, and millions of his supporters may stay with him to the bitter end. Many believe this is not a protest campaign but a winning campaign — and they like their man!

National Geographic now conspires with poison-pushing corporations to destroy the very planet it once photographed

What was once considered an excellent resource for educating young minds about science and the environment is now aggressively promoting industry-backed "science," including the claim that water fluoridation is completely safe and anyone who questions it is a disreputable conspiracy theorist.

In operation since 1888, the National Geographic Society is one of the largest nonprofit scientific and educational institutions in the world, educating minds about geography, archaeology and natural science, as well promoting environmental and historical conservation.

While that may have once been the case, the largely influential scientific nonprofit is now dedicated to pushing the agenda of corporations poisoning and destroying the planet.

BEX ALERT - ISIS pledge second Holocaust: Horrifying jihadis' threat as fears for Jewish people rises

ISLAMIC State (ISIS) have pledged a SECOND HOLOCAUST as they vow to kill Jewish people across the world.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US and Israel are trying to recover from the recent revelations that ISIS is supported by both the US and Israel as a tool to transform the Middle East. So, once again, they are dragging out that tired well-worn propaganda image of the Holocaust to wag us all into pouring our money and the lives of our children into more wars of conquest.

DoJ to Apple: your software is licensed, not sold, so we can force you to decrypt

The DoJ is currently trying to force Apple to decrypt data stored on a defendant's Iphone, and Apple, to its great credit, is fighting back, arguing that on the one hand, it doesn't have the technical capability to do so; and on the other, should not be required to do so.

A new filing from the DoJ attacks this second point in a novel and far-reaching way. The Justice Department lawyers argue that because Apple licenses its software -- as opposed to selling it outright -- that it is appropriate for the government to demand that Apple provide assistance in its legal cases.

Ah, but there is a wrinkle! Corporations have now been deemed to be legal persons enjoying the protections of the Bill of Rights including Freedom of Speech, and Presumably the Fourth Amendment right to privacy!

U.S. patrols to raise stakes with Beijing in disputed South China Sea

U.S. plans to send warships or military aircraft within 12 nautical miles of China's artificial islands in the disputed South China Sea, possibly within days, could open a tense new front in Sino-U.S. rivalry.

A range of security experts said Washington's so-called freedom of navigation patrols would have to be regular to be effective, given Chinese ambitions to project power deep into maritime Southeast Asia and beyond.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is a small point that should be remembered. China didn't just create a bunch of new islands rising from the floor of the ocean to above the water. In most cases, China simply built up already-existing landmasses such as atolls and reefs, no different than what has been done to places like Diego Garcia.

FLASHBACK - Leader Of Iran’s Jewish Community Calls Netanyahu ‘Delusional’ Over Iran Deal

Haroun Yashayaei, leader of Iran’s Jewish community, took to the local media to strongly criticize the Israeli leader and voice his support for the Iran deal.

The opinion piece, titled “Your Time Is Over, Mr. Netanyahu,” was originally published in Iran’s Shargh Daily shortly after the nuclear deal was announced and appeared last Thursday in an English translation on IranReview.org. Yashayaei, who is chairman of the board of the Tehran Jewish Committee, was blunt about his views on Netanyahu:

MICHEAL MEACHER

Michael Meacher, who died yesterday, was in many ways the intellectual powerhouse behind the insurrection that saw Jeremy Corbyn elected leader of the Labour Party this summer.

He was one of the few politicians to attend the Parliamentary debate on money creation, he gave a stirring speech at the protests when UK hosted the secretive Bilderberg Group, and he was the only mainstream politician to raise questions about the 911 attacks, with a 2003 article in the Guardian headed "This War on Terrorism is Bogus".

His 911 stance led to an aggressive character assassination campaign by the US London Embasssy. Later, when he planned a showing of the 911 sceptic movie Loose Change in the House of Commons it was cancelled at the last moment while Michael said privately that he feared violent repercussions.

Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren Attack Predatory Wall Street Bankers

At a committee hearing on Thursday, Sens. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren accused Wall Street bankers and fund investors of bleeding Puerto Rico’s economy dry in an attempt to maximize returns on high interest rates. Instead of recklessly driving Puerto Rico further into crippling debt, Sanders and Warren have called for these financial institutions to allow Puerto Rico to restructure its debt in a way that protects residents, ordinary investors, and pension funds in the U.S.

Is Ben Carson Serving The Same 'Spoiler' Role to Donald Trump as Alan Keys Tried To Do With Pat Buchanan? (1996)

In response to my recent post showing Ben Carson saying "Illegal Aliens Could Stay," a reader writes: "Carson is the 2015 version of Alan Keyes. Keyes was a house boy for Bill Kristol (his Harvard roommate) and stalking horse for the Establishment. He crippled Pat Buchanan in the early primary voting in 1996." Let's compare these two situations, twenty years after Buchanan vs. Keyes, where another alleged 'black conservative GOP candidate' Ben Carson challenges a pro-American populist, Donald Trump, in the GOP Presidential primary.

US rejected Israeli request for hardware to raid Iranian nuclear facility – report

Israel wanted to send commandos to break into the Fordo nuclear facility in Iran and sabotage it from the inside, WSJ reports. The US considered it a suicide mission and refused to sell Israel military hardware that could be used in such a raid.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obviously, public exposure of a raid by Israelis using US equipment would undermine the propaganda campaign portraying Iran as the evil aggressor.

Poll: Ben Carson Leads Donald Trump By 9 Points In Iowa

Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson has overtaken billionaire businessman Donald Trump in another poll on the 2016 GOP presidential field in the early state of Iowa, picking up 10 points of support since August.

Mr. Carson received the support of 28 percent of likely GOP caucus participants in the Bloomberg Politics/Des Moines Register numbers released Friday. Mr. Trump was at 19 percent - down 4 points since August.

A Quinnipiac poll released Thursday also showed Mr. Carson overtaking Mr. Trump in the state and leading by 8 points, 28 percent to 20 percent.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The sudden reversal of Carson in Iowa, coupled with the GOP openly trying to oust Trump, makes me very suspicious about the accuracy of these polls. After all, the very same sudden reversal also hit Ron Paul's campaigns in Iowa! Polls have no safeguards against fraud. They are far easier to rig than elections and we know how easy American elections are to rig.

CNN mourns Harper’s defeat

The folks at Rupert Murdoch CNN are not happy with the defeat of Israeli poodle Stephen Harper’s regime in Ottawa. They have slammed Canadian voters for dumping Harper’s Conservatives in favor of Justin Trudeau’s Liberals. I got to agree with the Zionist bleeding hearts, because after becoming prime-minister designate, Trudeau got on the phone and told Barack Obama that Canada would be pulling out of the US-lead ‘Alliance of Absurd’ protecting the so-called Islamic state.

Trudeau has promised to repeal the draconian C-51 anti-terrorism bill which was authored by Israel lobby groups to criminalize criticism of the Zionist regime.

Tampons, sterile cotton, sanitary pads contaminated with glyphosate - study

The vast majority ? 85 percent ? of tampons, cotton and sanitary products tested in a new Argentinian study contained glyphosate, the key ingredient in Monsanto's Roundup herbicide, ruled a likely carcinogen by the World Health Organization.

Meanwhile, 62 percent of the samples tested positive for AMPA, glyphosate's metabolite, according to the study, which was conducted by researchers at the Socio-Environmental Interaction Space (EMISA) of the University of La Plata in Argentina.

All of the raw and sterile cotton gauze analyzed in the study showed evidence of glyphosate, said Dr. Damian Marino, the study's head researcher.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF this practice is going on in Argentina, you can almost bet that it is going on in the US as well.

Monsanto has known that glyphosate is a carcinogen for over 40 years; and cotton, infused, with glyphosate, has been used in the manufacture of tampons FOR YEARS?!?!?

Holy CRUD!!

To all the ladies who read this site, and the men who love them, please investigate what natural alternatives may exist in your local health food store, today, if possible; you should not have to be putting up with this poison.

Same Judge who Covered Up CIA Torture Dismisses Suit Against NSA Surveillance

By Andrew Emett

Responsible for helping cover up the CIA’s torture program, the same judge dismissed a lawsuit on Friday filed by the ACLU, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, Wikipedia, and other organizations accusing the NSA of conducting mass surveillance. Although it is now common knowledge that the NSA can retroactively access phone records, text messages, emails, Internet activity, GPS locations, and metadata, the judge dismissed the suit because the NSA refuses to admit that they are incessantly violating our constitutional rights...
