Israeli Soldiers Raid Homes, Question Kids as Young as 9

TEL AVIV, Israel — Masked and armed Israeli soldiers have been recorded forcefully entering Palestinian homes and waking up, photographing and questioning children as young as nine.

The videos highlight Israeli efforts to track down young Palestinian rock throwers in the occupied West Bank, according to an Israeli rights group.

"We are getting reports of nightly searches by soldiers demanding that Palestinian kids be woken up," Sarit Michaeli, an activist working for B'Tselem human rights group, told NBC News. "The Palestinians in the West Bank live under Israeli military law so currently the army doesn't need a warrant or permit to enter Palestinian homes."

Since 2007, B'Tselem has handed out about 200 video cameras to Palestinians living in the West Bank so they could document their treatment at the hands of Israeli soldiers. The surge of documented night operations targeting children, however, is more recent.

Why my own Royal Society is wrong on climate change: A devastating critique of world's leading scientific organisation by one of its Fellows

During my time as a government departmental Chief Scientific Adviser, I was always aware that politicians made the final decision on any issue on the balance of all the evidence. For this reason, civil servants are trained to draw their attention to all the upsides and downsides of taking a particular course of action.

Those who fail to provide balance are not giving advice, but lobbying. It is with the deepest regret that I must now state that this is the role which has been adopted by the Royal Society. And when scientists abandon neutral inquiry for lobbying, they jeopardise their purpose and integrity.

Barack and Michelle Obama spent more than $1million of taxpayer's money on separate flights to LA - despite filming TV appearances on the SAME DAY just miles apart

The President and First Lady both filmed TV appearances in Burbank, California on Thursday - but billed taxpayers for two separate private flights to get there.

Barack Obama took Air Force One to LAX, at a cost of more than $1million, so he could be on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

But, rather than ride with him, Michelle Obama chartered a different, earlier plane for a slot on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, filmed in the same LA suburb as Kimmel's program.

VINDICATED: Researcher punished for exposing climate fraud beats UCLA

One UCLA science researcher, a 34-year veteran of the school, found himself out of a job in 2011 after examining the data underlying diesel regulations proposed by a California regulator and exposing the shoddy credentials of a lead author of that regulator’s report.

James Enstrom secured victory in a two-and-a-half year legal battle against UCLA last week when the school agreed to settle the case.

The school is paying the “diesel particulate matter” expert $140,000, reinstating his title as “Retired Researcher,” and restoring his access to UCLA resources, “effectively” rescinding his termination, according to the American Center for Law & Justice, which represented Enstrom.

BEX Alert - War with Iran is probably our best option

The logical flaw in the indictment of a looming “very bad” nuclear deal with Iran that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu delivered before Congress this month was his claim that we could secure a “good deal” by calling Iran’s bluff and imposing tougher sanctions. The Iranian regime that Netanyahu described so vividly — violent, rapacious, devious and redolent with hatred for Israel and the United States — is bound to continue its quest for nuclear weapons by refusing any “good deal” or by cheating. . .

. . . Does this mean that our only option is war? Yes, although an air campaign targeting Iran’s nuclear infrastructure would entail less need for boots on the ground than the war Obama is waging against the Islamic State, which poses far smaller a threat than Iran does.

CANADIAN PUBLISHER FACES JAIL FOR POLITICAL WRITINGS!

Hello. My name is Arthur Topham and I am the owner, publisher and editor of the online alternative News site RadicalPress.com which has been operating in Canada for the past sixteen years. Over the last eight years I have been involved in legal battles with the Canadian government, first the Canadian Human Rights Commission and now the federal legal system over alleged offences that purportedly violate Canada's "Hate Propaganda" laws (Sections 318 - 320) of the Canadian Criminal Code (CCC).

C.I.A. Funds Found Their Way Into Qaeda Coffers: The United States has financed the very militants it is fighting as it spends hundreds of billions of dollars in Iraq

C.I.A. Cash Ended Up in Coffers of Al Qaeda: They first turned to a secret fund that the Central Intelligence Agency bankrolled with monthly cash deliveries to the presidential palace in Kabul, according to several Afghan officials involved in the episode. The Afghan government, they said, had already squirreled away about $1 million from that fund.

Within weeks, that money and $4 million more provided from other countries was handed over to Al Qaeda, replenishing its coffers after a relentless C.I.A. campaign of drone strikes in Pakistan had decimated the militant network’s upper ranks.

“God blessed us with a good amount of money this month,” Atiyah Abd al-Rahman, the group’s general manager, wrote in a letter to Osama bin Laden in June 2010, noting that the cash would be used for weapons and other operational needs.

Can't take my eyes off of you, neighbour

New Zealand spies programmed an internet mass surveillance system to intercept messages about senior public servants and a leading anti-corruption campaigner in the Solomon Islands, a top-secret document reveals.

For the first time, New Zealanders can learn about people their government has targeted as part of its role in Five Eyes, a surveillance alliance that includes New Zealand, the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, and Australia.

The secret document, dated from January 2013, shows some of the names and other search terms that the Government Communications Security Bureau (GCSB) entered into the internet spying system XKeyscore. XKeyscore is run by the US National Security Agency and is used to analyse vast amounts of email, internet browsing sessions and online chats that are intercepted from some 150 different locations worldwide.

GCSB spied on inner circle of former Solomon Islands PM and anti-corruption campaigner

New Zealand spies targeted the emails and other electronic communications of the aides and confidants of the Prime Minister of the Solomon Islands, a top-secret document says.

The document (scroll to end of article to read it) shows the Government Communications Security Bureau programmed a powerful electronic surveillance system to scoop up documents from the Prime Minister's chief of staff, who has spoken of his outrage at the intrusion into Solomon Islands affairs.

Another on the target list was anti-corruption campaigner Benjamin Afuga, who has expressed concern over the identity of his confidential sources.

The Herald on Sunday today reveals the first insight into the GCSB's precise surveillance targets in the Pacific. The document was obtained by the investigative journalist Nicky Hager and The Intercept, a US news site specialising in stories about the intelligence community's surveillance.

Hillary’s Miss Communication

When it comes to the Clintons, you never know which scandals will stick and which will miraculously disappear because of the deal they made with Satan when selling their tattered souls. That being said, Hillary’s metastasizing email scandal seems to have the potential to derail her presidential aspirations – and perhaps incur criminal charges.

It seems that when Hillary became Secretary of State, she immediately set up a private email server in her home and conducted all of her official business (and quite likely monkey business) on that computer email system rather than the cyber-secure government system which is required by federal law.

After a two day silence on the subject, Hillary eventually tweeted that she really, truly wants America to see her emails, and State Department spokes-hipster Marie “Jobs For ISIS” Harf has confirmed that this will absolutely happen. You know, eventually.

Son of Carl Sagan is a 9/11 truther: ‘It’s a cover up, basically’

Jeremy Sagan, the son of Sagan and his first wife, biologist Lynn Margulis, told Free Fall host Andrew Steele that he grew more suspicious about the collapse after watching video at a friend’s house, months after the attack that killed almost 2,700 people in New York City that day.

“Well, on first seeing it— I mean anyone seeing it can see that there’s something suspicious about it. I remember and –I think it was New Year’s 2002, I was at a friend’s house, you know, and some parents of another friends, and they were saying Bush could never do something like this because he was incompetent. But in retrospect, now that I think about it, it’s true,” Sagan explained. “I don’t think Bush could really do it, but that’s why they had him skirted off into Florida, to, you know, get him a bit out of the way. In retrospect, you look at that and its obvious it was a controlled demolition.”

Judicial Watch: Contrary to her comments, Hillary’s emails probably contained classified material

While it’s not only probable but likely that there “is” no classified material on Clinton’s email servers now, it’s highly unlikely that Clinton never sent or received sensitive or classified information on her email account. According to an investigation conducted by the government oversight organization Judicial Watch, there is plenty of reason to view Clinton’s claim with suspicion.

State Dept. email archiving process puts Clinton on the spot

The State Department only last month started automatically preserving dozens of high-level officials' emails, according to a department spokeswoman, a revelation that comes amid the controversy surrounding former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's own email use.

This is key because Clinton, in her news conference on Tuesday to answer questions about why she exclusively used a private email address to communicate during her tenure, told reporters she'd thought her communications to senior department officials were always saved. That's an important point, given legal requirements for preserving federal records.

Beware of accepting Western Union money orders!

Not one easily frustrated and seldom angry, I just had a bad experience that could happen to anyone selling (or in my case, giving away) items on QRZ.com. Beware of accepting Western Union money orders!

I recently offered on QRZ.com to give away a G5RV antenna, that I no longer used, to a ham with limited space—“free, merely pay for the medium-box flat-rate shipping of $10.70.” (The fact that the item was being given away is irrelevant—it could have been a for-sale item, instead.) Several hams responded to my ad and I had to choose only one. But, I also remembered that I had a used Slinky antenna and I offered the same deal to one of the non-selected responders.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This just now happened to me, with a donation from a supporter in Madison, Wisconsin. Bank returned it with "Refer to maker." No other explanation. I thought the whole point of a money order was that the funds were guaranteed to be there!

Is Western Union starting to cheat its customers to stay in business?

Kerry Argues That There Are Still ‘Significant Gaps’ Before A Nuclear Deal With Iran

Secretary of State John Kerry.
The Secretary of State, John Kerry , acknowledged Saturday the existence of “significant discrepancies” in negotiations with Tehran over Iran’s nuclear program but stressed that there has been “progress”.

Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of the economic conference held in the Egyptian city of Sharm al Sheikh, Kerry said that “the objective of the negotiations is not simply to agree, but getting the right deal”.

He said that Iran may not be ready to accept the conditions, and revealed that if no agreement is reached further action will be taken.

CIA director: Social media ‘greatly amplifies’ terror threat

CIA Director John Brennan said Friday that changing technology and social media websites have “greatly amplified” the security threats facing the free world.

Mr. Brennan told the Council on Foreign Relations in New York that the Islamic State group, for example, uses new technologies to “coordinate operations, attract new recruits, disseminate propaganda, and inspire sympathizers across the globe to act in their name,” Reuters reported.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sorry, John Brennan, but does the United States Government not do the same?!?!?

And sir, there are 4 words in American English which can never be used henceforward with a straight face: they are "truth" and "the US Government"

And Mr. Brennan, there is a question which must be honestly asked and answered, and that is, how the heck do people become radicalized in the first place?!?

IS it because their governments are transparent; that there is a firm foundation of education and literacy, great health care, and a booming economy which all but guarantees them jobs upon reaching their young adult status?

Or, do people become radicalized because their life experience with their government is the polar opposite of what I have just described?!?

Let's take a look at the failed state of Yemen, shall we?!? The government of that country is judged to be one of the most corrupt on the planet; the economy is lousy; there is no real tradition of literacy and 21st century understanding, except for the very wealthy and the economy is in shambles.

And yet, over the last 30 years, this is the government the US government has propped up, financially and militarily. First, the Saleh government, then the Al-Hadi government was enabled up by the US.

Do you remember how many people were on the ballot when Al-Hadi ran for President of Yemen?!? Only one: Al-Hadi. No other candidate was on the ballot.

For well over 30 years, the people of Yemen were left in a truly losing situation; and ultimately overthrew their dictator in favor of radicals, something which seemed to throw those in DC into a real frenzy.

And to say that those in power in DC "didn't see it coming" indicates that every one in Sodom on the Potomac was simultaneously drunk, blind, and asleep.

Can you, for one moment, sir, blame the Yemenite people for having become radicalized to the point where they threw out the old guard, and closed down the Parliament?!?

The late President Kennedy said it best: "when peaceful revolution is impossible, violent revolution is inevitable."

Mr. Brennan just such a slow-boil situation as we have just witnessed in Yemen is about to take place in Bahrain, and potentially even Saudi Arabia; it is time for this American government to wake up and smell the burning smell of revolution all around them, and use US aid to encourage those two-bit despots we keep place because they are "our thugs" to give their people the better lives and real governmental representation they deserve.

The US government ignores these democratic impulses at its peril.

Natural gas: The fracking fallacy - The US is banking on decades of abundant natural gas to power its economic resurgence. That may be wishful thinking.

All of those investments are based on the expectation that US gas production will climb for decades, in line with the official forecasts by the US Energy Information Administration (EIA). As agency director Adam Sieminski put it last year: “For natural gas, the EIA has no doubt at all that production can continue to grow all the way out to 2040.”

But a careful examination of the assumptions behind such bullish forecasts suggests that they may be overly optimistic, in part because the government's predictions rely on coarse-grained studies of major shale formations, or plays. Now, researchers are analysing those formations in much greater detail and are issuing more-conservative forecasts. They calculate that such formations have relatively small 'sweet spots' where it will be profitable to extract gas.

The results are “bad news”, says Tad Patzek, head of the University of Texas at Austin's department of petroleum and geosystems engineering, and a member of the team that is conducting the in-depth analyses. With companies trying to extract shale gas as fast as possible and export significant quantities, he argues, “we're setting ourselves up for a major fiasco”.

WHAT IRANIAN JEWS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT IT ALL

If you’re looking for the Jewish community in the Iranian town of Esfahan, you won’t have to search for long.

The main synagogue is on Palestine Square, right in the heart of Iran’s third largest city. There are public prayers several times a day — sometimes with more than a hundred people in attendance.

The Jewish community in Iran does not hide its heritage. At the synagogue, Michael Malakon leads the prayer service. He says he is proud of his Jewish identity. And even in a country that is so hostile towards Israel, Malakon says he can practice freely and that he has many Muslim friends.

Guns on Parade: U.S. Army sending armored convoy 1,100 miles through Europe

The convoy is "a highly visible demonstration of U.S, commitment to its NATO allies and demonstrating NATO's ability to move military forces freely across allied borders in close cooperation," U.S. Army Europe spokesman Lt. Col. Craig Childs, said in a statement, according to the Stripes report. The troops and vehicles involved will be moving from training exercises conducted as part of Operation Atlantic Resolve in Estonia, Lithuania and Poland, the report said. They'll move through Latvia and the Czech Republic as they make their way to Vilseck, Germany, about a 40 miles drive from the Czech border.

The American Story Is A Mystery Only to Economists

Here’s what Bloomberg’s Craig Torres and Michelle Jamrisko write: “American Mystery Story: Consumers Aren’t Spending Even In a Booming Job Market”. Yes, it is a great mystery to 95% of journalists and economists. Because they have never learned to even contemplate that perhaps people can be so deep in debt that they have nothing left to spend. Instead, their knowledge base states that if people don’t spend, they must be saving. Those are the sole two options. And so if the US government reports that 863,000 underpaid new waiters have been hired, these waiters have to go out and spend all that underpayment, they must consume. And if they don’t, that becomes The American Mystery Story.

For me, the mystery lies elsewhere. I’m wondering how it ever got to this. How did the capacity for critical thinking disappear from the field of economics? And from journalism?

Series of Snowstorms Leaves Snow-Capped Mountains on Hawaii's Big Island

A series of snowstorms left an impressive view of snow-covered volcanic peaks on the Big Island of Hawaii.

A new image (above) from NASA’s Earth Observatory shows snow covering Mauna Kea on March 10, 2015. While snow isn't unheard of on Mauna Kea, NASA points out that it is uncommon.

Earlier this week, the National Weather Service had placed both Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa under a blizzard warning. Meteorologists said as much as 8 inches of snow could fall at 11,000 feet elevation. Strong winds with gusts of 85 mph were also possible, according to weather.com meteorologists.

CIA DIRECTOR DESCRIBES HOW THE U.S. OUTSOURCES TERROR INTERROGATIONS

In rare remarks about a sensitive issue, the director of the CIA confirmed today that the U.S. government works with foreign intelligence agencies to capture and jointly interrogate suspected terrorists.

“There are places throughout the world where CIA has worked with other intelligence services and has been able to bring people into custody and engage in the debriefings of these individuals…through our liaison partners, and sometimes there are joint debriefings that take place as well,” said John Brennan, the CIA director, speaking at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York.

Brennan’s remarks confirm what journalists have long reported: that the Obama administration sometimes helps other countries do the dirty work of snatching and interrogating terror suspects–keeping the U.S. at arm’s length from operations that are ethically and legally dubious.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"....ethically and legally dubious.." ?!?!?!?

HOW ABOUT FLIPPING MORALLY ABHORRENT?!?

And folks, whenever the US tortures, or outsources torture, the following things happen:

1. The world understands that all of those values this country allegedly hold dear (human rights, the right to due process, and even the right to life) mean absoflippinglutely NOTHING to those in power.

2. When the US tortures, or outsources torture, it gives other governments which don't like us much carte blanche to torture American civilians and military personnel.

Those of you with friends or family serving, please chew on that last one for a while.

CURRENCY WARS: IN DESPERATE MOVE, SWIFT ADDS RUSSIA TO ITS BOARD AS A VOTING MEMBER

Two days after China announced they were within months of implementing their own version of SWIFT to compete and perhaps overtake the U.S. dollar as the globally recognized reserve currency, the West does a U-Turn and has accepted Russia as a voting member of their financial messaging and interchange system. This move on March 11 comes just months after the U.S. threatened the Eurasian oil giant with being locked out of SWIFT over the Ukraine conflict, and appears now to be an act of desperation as the dollar becomes less and less of a factor in global trade.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absolutely, completely hysterical!!

But it is not going to stop China from creating their own version of SWIFT; and when that happens, I would not bet against the Yuan becoming the premier world currency.

Impending Threat to Canadian Democracy: Harper Government’s “Anti-Terrorism Act” isn’t about Terrorism, it’s a Torture Act

We know already that Stephen Harper doesn’t flinch from covering up high-level Canadian responsibility for torture in Afghanistan. In November 2009, the Toronto Star quoted a former senior NATO public affairs official as saying that flagrantly false denials about Canadian complicity in the torture of Afghan detainees had been scripted by Harper and his PMO, “which was running the public affairs aspect of Canadian engagement in Afghanistan with a 6,000-mile screwdriver.”9 And we’ve not forgotten that a month later Mr. Harper prorogued Parliament in order to shut down a parliamentary committee that was hearing evidence on the subject.

But on October 22 of last year, when a deranged gunman murdered Corporal Nathan Cirillo at the National War Memorial and then tried to run amok on Parliament Hill, Mr. Harper was less brave. While some members of his caucus prepared to defend themselves and their parliamentary colleagues with anything that came to hand, he hid in a closet.

BEX ALERT - Sometimes you can’t win: More cold and snow thanks to global warming

Webmaster's Commentary: 

They never quit!

This article is in error in saying that only the eastern US saw record cold and snow. That is not true. Capracotta, Italy received 100 inches of snow in just 18 hours, and we had a blizzard on the Big Island here in Hawaii just yesterday!

Back in 2000 the global warming Carbonazis were screaming that snow was a thing of the past. But, they cannot admit they were wrong about human-caused global warming without losing their reputations and funding, and science has a long history of promoting major goofs for long periods of time, rather than admit error.

Alchemy, for one.

Phlogiston Chemistry, for another.

Prior to the 14th Century Astronomers thought the Earth was the center of the universe, because, well, that's what the church wanted, and spent hundreds of years of scientific research on the theory of Epicycles; which holds the record for longest running scientific goof!

17th Century doctors thought rubbing chicken dung into your scalp would cure baldness! They also thought leeches sucked disease out of patients.

18th Century Geologists thinking the Earth was 6000 years old, because, well, that's what the church wanted!

Prior to the 1950s, scientists thought proteins carried our heredity.

Until the 19th Century, doctors though infection was caused by bad air.

Scientists claimed cigarettes were good for you up until the 1950s. They even had a machine to pump tobacco smoke into your anus...

... the origin of the phrase "blowing smoke up your a**!"

Until 2005, doctors thought ulcers were caused by stress.

National Geographic should not be questioning why people do not trust science after its own 1999 "Piltdown Chicken" scandal!

Science is not perfect. Science does make mistakes. The beauty of science is supposed to be that they admit it, not use the label of "science" like a modern religious icon to push agendas onto people! Anyone who says the "Science is settled" is not being scientific, they are being propagandistic!

You are witness to one of the greatest frauds perpetrated on the people of planet Earth, to trick them out of their money and into obedience under the guise of the fight against Human-Caused Global Warming (now rebranded "Human Caused Climate Change" to explain away the icicles we were told were not going to happen). The global warming scare was concocted out of outright lies, purchased science, and scare mongering to trick you into being willing to pay carbon taxes to solve a non-existent crisis you were told was all your fault. And, of course, to lull you into accepting the dictates of a global government that needed to save the Earth from you icky-poo human beings.

Commerzbank fined $1.5bn for doing business with sanctioned Iran and Sudan

Germany’s second biggest bank, Commerzbank, is to pay $1.45 billion (€1.36 billion) in fines to settle US Justice Department charges over transactions with sanctioned companies in Iran and Sudan.

From 2002-2008, the German bank cleared transactions worth $253 billion for Iranian and Sudanese companies that were sanctioned by the US. It used a method called ‘wire-stripping’ so as not to leave an identity on the transaction.

Explosive: yet another corrupt judge in the Maui vs. Monsanto case?Mar13

Last Election Day, the voters on Maui passed a resolution to temporarily stop Monsanto and Dow from continuing their toxic GMO and pesticide experiments in the “open-air laboratory” of Maui.

Monsanto and Dow sued immediately to nullify the will of the people. Since then, the case has been hung up in the courts.

A few months ago, I exposed the fact that the federal judge handling the case, Barry Kurren, was compromised, because his wife, Faye, was involved with an environmental group that had accepted huge money from Dow.

Judge Kurren, for whatever reasons, is no longer on the case. The sitting judge now is Susan Oki Mollway.

It’s all good now, right?

When America goes to war or plans one, Times editors march in lockstep. Rule of law principles are ignored. So does human suffering.

The most brazen European coup since Mussolini's 1922 march on Rome was ignored. Farcical staged elections were called democratic ones.

Mob rule governance is considered legitimate. Police state repression, massive corruption and naked aggression on its own citizens are airbrushed from Times reports.

But faced with falling ad revenues, Time Warner is seeing opportunities to sell ads during programs that are “not so tied to breaking news.” That’s why on its New Day morning show, “a logo for General Mills’ Fiber One cereal shows up during weather reports.”

US trust in govt, media at record low - poll

Americans are less confident in the government than ever before and consider it a bigger problem than the economy and unemployment, according to a comprehensive social survey for 2014 and a just-released Gallup poll.

Only 10 percent of Americans consider the nation's job situation to be the top problem. Eleven percent are most worried about the economy, according to a Gallup poll published Thursday. Meanwhile, 18 percent say the government is the biggest problem the country is facing.

Key Witness in Britain's Biggest Pedophile Case Lives in U.S.

After decades of alleged cover-ups the extent of sex abuse rings that included politicians, intelligence agents, judges and celebrities has only begun to emerge in recent years.

At the center of the claims is the Elm Guest House, a secretive hotel in West London, which, according to police, allegedly operated as a gay brothel that hosted regular child sex abuse parties attended by wealthy and influential guests. One of the boys who was considered a “favorite” and a “prize possession” to be shared by the abusers at these events is the man who has since relocated across the Atlantic.

Hollywood War Films, An Instrument of Military Indoctrination: The “American Sniper” Reviewers’ Consensus

Since American Sniper has become one of the “top grossing films of all time”, garnering a few Academy Award nominations and at least one, if trivial, award, there have been even more reviews written about this insidious and insipid strip of celluloid. Unsurprisingly all of them contain the same swill. I had to return to my own review just to see if I had perhaps omitted anything essential or if anyone might have thought in an at least similar direction.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I question the claim that it was even a box office success. Nobody I know went to see it!

Greece: what now?

The arrogant outcry of many anti-euro people about a “great betrayal” concerning to the agreement signed by Tsipras government is irritating and risible.

They just take as valid the narration of pro-euro mass media which in their turn repeat and amplify the German version, that is intended to prove that the Greek government signed the terms of unilateral surrender. But it is not just that! It’s evident that they are so much blind with their conceit to point the finger at the victims and not at the torturers. The moral of the story is that, in their opinion, Euro-Germany scored a massive victory and, furthermore, the Greek matter would be closed, deleted.

Probably things are not like that.

Jewish newspaper calls on Israel to nuke Iran and Germany

An Israeli publication has suggested that nuclear bombs should be launched at Iran and Germany—wiping out Tehran, Isfahan, Berlin, Munich, Hamburg, Nuremberg, Cologne, Frankfurt, Stuttgart, Dresden, and Dortmund. “Twenty to thirty bombs,” Jewish writer Ben-Eliyahu raves, “will get the job done.”

Israel seeks to destroy neighbours’ histories and identities

This would not be the first time that the Israelis have endeavoured to destroy historical and cultural artifacts in order to bolster their territorial claims and to eradicate inconvenient elements of the past.

In 2003, in an article headed “Pillaging 7000 Years Of Iraq History No Accident” sub-heading “The Sacking Of Iraq’s Museums – US Wages War Against Culture And History”, Patrick Martin wrote in Rense.com that “US claims to have been taken by surprise by the ransacking of cultural facilities in Baghdad, Mosul and other cities are not credible. Such a tragedy was not only predictable, it was specifically warned against. . . . Attacking the cultural resources that connect the Iraqi people to 7,000 years of history is part of the process of systematically destroying their national identity.”

British girls were helped into Syria by spy from U.S.-led coalition

A spy who worked for a country in the U.S.-led coalition that is fighting Islamic State had helped three British girls to cross into Syria to join the militants and has been caught, the Turkish foreign minister said on Thursday.

The minister, Mevlut Cavusoglu, told broadcaster A Haber in an interview: "He was caught. It turned out to be someone who works for the intelligence of a country from the coalition."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I wonder if the plan was to get these girls into Iraq, photograph them there with ISIS, then bring them back home to set them up as patsies for another false-flag terror attack.

On Iran deal, Republicans cut off their nose to spite their face

The letter signaled not only continued Republican obstructionism toward seemingly anything President Obama does, but also that the United States is potentially no longer a cohesive entity in terms of how it conducts itself in global affairs. In fact, what the Republicans have done with their attempt at scuttling the diplomatic efforts aimed at peacefully resolving the Iranian nuclear dispute, is to make a claim that has very rarely been made in US history: that the US government’s executive branch does not conduct the nation’s foreign policy.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Under the Constitution, only the White House and the State Department may conduct foreign policy, and those 47 Senators who signed that letter to Iran (and the congressmen who bypassed the White House to invite Netanyahu to speak before Congress) are all in violation of the Logan Act, which carries a three-year prison sentence for the crime of unauthorized negotiations with foreign governments.

BEX ALERT - ‘Putin Involved in Drug Smuggling Ring’, Says Ex-KGB Officer

The allegations were made by ex-KGB officer Yuri Shvets who spoke at the inquiry into the death Alexander Litvinenko yesterday.

Separating anti-Semitism from anti-Zionism

Netanyahu drew thunderous applause that followed the words loudly proclaimed as if he owned them: “Never Again.” I felt sick as he spoke of the deadly rise of anti-Semitism, a hatred of Jews bound together with the destruction of Israel. “Never Again,” a powerful and highly charged statement, was used here to create a lie in the suppression of the crimes of Israeli Zionism, covered up and justified as a means to “defend itself.” What? To defend itself from a repeat of Hitler’s program to rid Europe of all Jews? Is that the vision of a Jewish State only, a place of safety for all Jews to be protected from a hostile world, with walls, and born from the blood of apartheid and ethnic cleansing? Is this not insanity to pursue an agenda with complete disregard to human values except for Jews?

Source: Senate panel probes whether Obama administration funded effort to oust Netanyahu

A powerful U.S. Senate investigatory committee has launched a bipartisan probe into an American nonprofit’s funding of efforts to oust Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu after the Obama administration’s State Department gave the nonprofit taxpayer-funded grants, a source with knowledge of the panel's activities told FoxNews.com.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This from the same Senate of which 47 members violated the Logan Act to invite Netanyahu to speak before the US Congress bypassing the State Department and the White House so that Netanyahu could influence US policy towards Iran!

One American's Rage Spills Over: Shut Your Mouth & Start Fighting These Political Parasites

I was shocked today by the absolute gaul of the Fed releasing a statement about Net Worth in America reaching record levels. Now I get that they are under extreme pressure to sell the story that everything is rainbows and butterflies. But surely they understand that working class Americans are going along with the story because they really don’t have any say in our nation’s policies anymore. That doesn’t mean they want it thrown in their faces that the Fed has spent 6 years now inflating the wealth of the top 10% so much that it actually lifts the total wealth of the nation’s citizens to record highs.

Netanyahu Assures Critics He Still Has Utmost Respect For U.S. Money

In a concerted effort to ease growing tensions between the two nations, Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu assured his critics Monday that he still has the utmost respect for U.S. money. “Relations between our two countries have at times been strained, but I promise you all that the entire Israeli government, myself included, still holds a high opinion of the United States’ cash,” said Netanyahu, emphasizing that his speech to Congress was not intended to show any disrespect for American funding whatsoever.

The U.S. has so much crude that it is running out of places to put it, and that could drive oil and gasoline prices even lower in the coming months.

For the past seven weeks, the United States has been producing and importing an average of 1 million more barrels of oil every day than it is consuming. That extra crude is flowing into storage tanks, especially at the country’s main trading hub in Cushing, Oklahoma, pushing U.S. supplies to their highest point in at least 80 years, the Energy Department reported last month.

The long history of Israel gaming the ‘Iranian threat’

The only power of which the Zionist entity is afraid of, is the Islamic Republic of Iran, which believes that in accordance with human rights and democracy all the people of Palestine, whatever their religious inclination, have the right to carry out a referendum for one single country from the borders of Lebanon in the north to the Sinai in the south, and from the River Jordan in the east to the Mediterranean Sea in the west. Thus, in a bid to deflect attention from its crimes against humanity, Israel has indulged in the absurd propaganda that Islamic Iran is trying to manufacture a nuclear warhead despite the explicitly fatwa of Islamic authorities, including the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei. But this crying wolf by Zionist premier, Benjamin Netayanho, has been found out by the west and its intelligence agencies to be a sheer lie that was repeated once again last week in Washington when some influential members of the US

ISIS Beheadings of Journalists: CIA Admitted to Staging Fake Jihadist Videos in 2010

A 2010 Washington Post article authored by former Army Intelligence Officer Jeff Stein features a detailed account of how the CIA admittedly filmed a fake Bin Laden video during the run up to the 2003 Iraq war.

The article, which includes comments from multiple sources within the CIA’s Iraq Operations Group, explains how the agency had planned to “flood Iraq with the videos” depicting several controversial scenarios.

US, UK, and China battle over which bank gets to exploit Third World

US officials are currently in an uproar over the United Kingdom’s decision to become a founding member of the new Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank. This is a decision that forecasts a massive change in the world economy. The Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank is setting itself up to be direct competition to the World Bank and IMF. These two little known institutions truly cement the West as the dominant powers in the world. The policies of the new bank will be in direct opposition to those of the World Bank.

BP signs $12 billion energy deal in Egypt

SHARM EL-SHEIKH, Egypt: British oil company BP finalized on Saturday a $12 billion deal with Egypt to develop 5 trillion cubic feet of gas resources and 55 million barrels of condensates in the West Nile Delta.

The supply deal, signed at an international investment conference in the Sharm El-Sheikh resort, will help Egypt as it tackles its worst energy crisis in decades.

Rising energy consumption and decreasing production have turned it from a net energy exporter to a net importer in the last few years and caused persistent blackouts.

Caligula’s Horse By Eric Margolis

snip: Adelson, who has reportedly called for nuking Iran, is also Bibi Netanyahu’s primary political and financial sponsor. So Adelson can say he owns the US Congress and Israel. Some Israelis, who will vote next week in a very tight election, are uneasy that Netanyahu is “owned” by the American gambling mogul Adelson. Is this the Zionist dream of a state built on morality, social fairness, and honesty?

Democrats are now largely owned by Israeli-American billionaire Haim Saban who calls himself somewhere to the right of the late Ariel Sharon. Saban, a media mogul, recently gave $5-10 million to the Clinton Library and is Hillary’s principal backer.

Bibi’s visit to Congress was clearly intended as pre-election political grandstanding. Marketing fear of Islam, Iran, ISIS, Hezbollah, Syria, al-Shebab and Boko Haram are now the stock in trade for embattled politicians in Israel, Canada, Australia and France.
