In Washington, War Is Peace

The “US Institute of Peace” is a coven of warmongers.
The Intercept has an article on the “U.S. Institute of Peace,” a government agency founded in 1984 supposedly dedicated to promoting “nonviolent resolution of conflicts”: author Lee Fang is shocked – shocked! – that USIP chairman Stephen J. Hadley, a former national security advisor to George W. Bush, wants to arm Ukraine so as to impress Putin with the sight of “body bags of Russian soldiers who have been killed.” Yet the USIP has long been a site of neoconservative infection inside the national security bureaucracy.

Jimmy Carter: USA is a rotten oligarchy based on bribery

Former US President Jimmy Carter said he did not consider the present-day United States of America a democratic state.
The 39th President of the United States made the statement in an interview with Tom Hartmann, a well-known radio host and progressive political commentator.
Carter criticized the practice of "unlimited political bribery" that has created "a complete subversion of our political system as a payoff to major contributors."
According to Carter, America has turned into a real oligarchy, where all power is concentrated in the hands of financial elite. This was made possible owing to the decision of the US Supreme Court, which entitled corporations to make unlimited financial investments into the political sphere of the country.

Ukraine launches Islamization by creating Muslim Battalion

Ukrainian president's envoy for the Crimean Tatars people, Mustafa Dzhemilev, announced the creation of a "Muslim battalion." One should not minimize the threat of unleashing ethnic and religious wars in the former Soviet Union: Turkey is standing behind Dzhemilev's actions.
The so-called "World Congress of the Crimean Tatars" took place in Turkey's Ankara on August 1-2. The organizers of the event were former leaders of the Majlis, Mustafa Dzhemilev and Refat Chubarov. Today, they are personas non grata in Russia for "inciting ethnic hatred." The "Congress" brought together about 200 groups of Crimean Tatars from different countries, Radio Svoboda says. The participants of the event said they were forced to hold their meeting outside the Crimea because of the pressure from Russian special services. All was happening against the background of support from Turkey that said that it would never support the "annexation of the Crimea.'"

IS might have seized more territories but for Russia’s help to Syria and Iraq — Lavrov

The terrorist group Islamic State (IS) might have seized more territories if Russia would not have offered military assistance to the Syrian and Iraqi governments, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Monday.
"The most serious threat in Iraq and Syria is Islamic State," he said. "Yes, we do offer military technical assistance to the Syrian government to repel this threat, we also support Iraq. We have reasons to think that without such assistance Islamic State might have seized much more thousands of square kilometres of territories."

The relevant contract was signed in January 2015. The agreement envisages restrictions on the use of the engines in military programs - rockets with the Russian-manufactured engines must not be used for military space missions.

Washington’s Fifth Columns Inside Russia and China

It took two decades for Russia and China to understand that “pro-democracy” and “human rights” organizations operating within their countries were subversive organizations funded by the US Department of State and a collection of private American foundations organized by Washington. The real purpose of these non-governmental organizations (NGOs) is to advance Washington’s hegemony by destabilizing the two countries capable of resisting US hegemony.

Police 'covered up' Ted Heath child sex abuse claims: Wiltshire force being investigated over allegation by 'very senior' former officer that trial was derailed to protect the former Prime Minister

Police are being investigated over sensational claims they covered up child sex allegations against former prime minister Edward Heath.

The probe was launched after a retired ‘very senior’ officer raised concerns that a criminal trial was derailed in the 1990s to protect the former Tory leader.

As a result, it is alleged, he was never interviewed by police – let alone arrested – and his home was not searched.

Watergate architect: Hillary scandals 'much larger' than Nixon's

The chief operative of the infamous Plumbers unit inside the Nixon White House – the man who orchestrated the Watergate building break-in – says that Hillary Clinton’s many scandals are “much larger” that anything of which Richard Nixon was accused.

“Bear in mind that nobody even caught a cold at the Watergate office building. But four devoted American citizens, including an ambassador, were left to die in Benghazi,” stated G. Gordon Liddy, the retired radio host, actor and bestselling author who was convicted of conspiracy, burglary and illegal wiretapping for his role directing and organizing the Watergate break-in.

America's National Parks are for sale

The corporatization process started with “co-branding” agreements, rationalized by Park Service officials as “aligning the economic and historical legacies” of parks with advertisers. In other words, they’re selling the Park Service’s proud public brand — as well as its soul. First in line was Coca-Cola. In 2007, the multibillion-dollar colossus became a “proud partner” with the Park Service by donating a mere $2.5 million (tax-deductible, meaning we taxpayers subsidized the deal) to the Park Service fundraising arm. In return, not only did Coke get exclusive rights to use park logos in its ads, but it was allowed to veto a Park Service plan to ban sales of bottled water in the Grand Canyon National Park. Disposable plastic bottles are that park’s biggest source of trash, but Coke owns Dasani, the top-selling water, so bye-bye ban. Public outrage forced officials to reverse this crass move, but the Park Service’s integrity has yet to recover.

U.S. factory activity dips; consumer spending cools

U.S. factory activity slipped in July and consumer spending advanced at its slowest pace in four months in June, indicating the economy lost some momentum recently.

But that could be temporary as automakers on Monday reported U.S. sales increased solidly last month after dipping in June, keeping the industry on track for its best year in a decade.

The sluggish economic data did not change economists' expectations that the Federal Reserve will hike interest rates this year, given a tightening labor market.

"We expect growth momentum to re-accelerate over the next few months, providing the Fed with the necessary confidence they need to raise rates in September," said Millan Mulraine, deputy chief economist at TD Securities in New York.

Hillary Clinton may have interfered with US program against offshore banks

On the heels of revelations earlier this year about questionable Clinton family activities in Haiti, the Wall Street Journal revealed last week that presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and her husband accepted cash from Swiss bank UBS, after she intervened to help it out with the IRS, thus potentially undermining the Justice Department’s so-called Swiss Bank Program against offshore banks that assist US tax cheats.

Then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton reportedly assisted UBS in scaling down the level of cooperation with the Justice Department regarding accounts of American tax cheats, to release only eight percent of the information demanded by the United States.

UBS later paid Bill Clinton $1.5 million for speaking engagements and also made donations to the Clinton Foundation.

"It May Come To A Military Coup": Ukraine's "Nazis" Threaten To Overthrow Government

That rather ominous assessment of the political situation in Ukraine comes courtesy of a Right Sector fighter who spoke to FT last week.

Like Saint Mary (the militia which recently pledged to create a "Christian Taliban" and insists that "Moscow must burn"), The Right Sector is one of the many volunteer battalions fighting to rout the Russian-backed separatists operating in eastern Ukraine.

As discussed here on Sunday by Justin Raimondo, "the Right Sector and allied far-rightist militias are the core of [Kiev’s] military operation against the east. Right Sector provided the muscle of the Maidan revolution, standing in the front lines against the widely feared Berkut special forces loyal to Yanukovych. If these thugs must be reined in, then the success of the 'anti-terrorist' campaign is doubtful: yet Kiev is increasingly unwilling to pay the high price of appeasing their increasingly troublesome Praetorians."

Why Did Greece Get 'Bitch-Slapped', While Ukraine Got Some 'Good-Loving' From Europe?

George Orwell once wrote in ‘Animal Farm’ ‘all animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others’. This famous sentence is now valid more than ever before as surprisingly, the IMF will continue to cut Greece out of potential funding, whilst it’s embracing Ukraine by offering that country billions of dollars in hard cash as support.

In a surprising statement, the IMF confirmed it has currently no intention to continue to back Greece by making more cash available for the country. Citing the high debt levels and the poor level of implementing the much needed changes and reforms, the IMF says Greece currently does not meet the criteria required by the IMF to step in and provide more financial assistance. As you might remember, the IMF has pulled the plug on providing Greece more cash to help the country out until it will be able to re-finance its existing debt on the private markets.

Former Merck Employee Targeted for Harassment, Intimidation After Speaking out Against Forced Vaccinations

Once upon a time, Brandy Vaughan worked as a sales rep for Merck & Co. selling a deadly drug called Vioxx which hurt and killed a lot of people. Brandy found out that her employer did this with prior knowledge that this drug was dangerous. She quit, and began to question the entire healthcare system, including the vaccinations that pediatricians later attempted to push on her infant son.

Now Brandy speaks out against vaccinations like the ones peddled by Pharma giant Merck. She has been a loud opponent in the fight against forced vaccination bills like S.B. 277, speaking at multiple protests and rallies against this blatant medical tyranny.

A video was sent to us, made by YouTuber Andrew Liebich, detailing the kind of intimidation and harassment that Brandy has been suffering as of late. This isn’t your average case of harassment….

Polio vaccines, Simian Virus 40, and human cancer: the epidemiologic evidence for a causal association

In 1960, it was discovered that Simian Virus 40 (SV40) contaminated up to 30% of the poliovirus vaccines in the US. This contamination arose because the vaccines were produced in monkey kidney cell cultures harboring SV40 between 1955 and 1963. During this period, approximately 90% of children and 60% of adults in the USA were inoculated for polio and possibly exposed to SV40. Many epidemiologic and molecular pathogenesis studies have been conducted in order to identify potential cancer risks since this 'natural' experiment began.

High rent is forcing Las Vegas families to take to the sewers

Beneath the glitz and glamour of what is arguably the most expensive real estate in the world, beneath the playground of the high-rolling mega-rich gamblers who fly in for the weekend in their private jets, beneath the neon lights and polished marble of the casinos, beneath the city that never sleeps, is a world that is known to only the handful of America’s forgotten—its homeless.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is absolutely insane.

Governor Herbert of Utah, you need to at least have a phone conversation with your counterpart, Governor Sandoval of Nevada, about how your state has humanely and compassionately all but eliminated homelessness in Utah, and how your approach has actually saved the state,money in the long run.

That ANYONE should have to live this way is so wrong, I just don't know where to begin.

'Perfect Storm' Engulfing Canada's Economy Perfectly Predictable

Years ago Andrew Nikiforuk, citing experts, warned where Stephen Harper's priorities would lead us.

Economists, an irrational tribe of short-sighted mathematicians, are now calling Canada's declining economic fortunes "a perfect storm."

It seems to be the only weather that complex market economies generate these days, or maybe such things are just another face of globalization.

In any case, economists now lament that low oil prices have upended the nation's trade balance: "Canada has posted trade deficits every month this year, and the cumulative 2015 total of $13.6 billion is a record, exceeding the next highest, in 2009, of $2.95 billion."

But this unique perfect storm gets darker. China, which Harperites eagerly embraced as the globe's autocratic growth locomotive, has run out of steam.

Switzerland’s central bank just lost $52 billion

The Swiss Franc is getting crushed.
Most banks around the world couldn’t survive losing $50 billion in six months. But most banks don’t print their own money.

The Swiss National Bank, Switzerland’s central bank, announced on Friday that it suffered a first-half loss of 50.1 billion Swiss francs ($52 billion), the vast majority of which was from the decline in value of its holdings of euros.

Anti-torture reforms opposed within psychology group after damning report

Opposition is building to intended anti-torture reforms within the largest professional organization of psychologists in the US, which faces a crossroads over what a recent report described as its past support for brutal military and CIA interrogations.

Before the American Psychological Association (APA) meets in Toronto next Thursday for what all expect will be a fraught convention that reckons with an independent review that last month found the APA complicit in torture, former military voices within the profession are urging the organization not to participate in what they describe as a witch hunt.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF members of this association are brought up on charges of collusion with the intent to torture, so be it.

The APA should renounce torture, and refuse to engage in it for the military, period, end of discussion.


But I will tell you what happens when this country tortures, or outsources torture: the world realizes that the alleged US values of humanity, decency, and democracy, are only truly practiced in the breach, and US torture gives any other country's leadership carte blanche to do the same to American civilians and service personnel also.

Mike Cuckabee - To the Ovens!

Mike Huckabee, a Republican presidential candidate, is showing what it means to be a cuckservative. God's chosen people have demanded that us worthless White people fight and die in a war with Iran. Obama has refused such a war, so these Republican cucks like Huckabee have started to scream that peace means we are sending "Israelis to the oven!"

Of course, Mike Huckabee is too much of a fat ass to fight for and die for Israel. But he wants your sons and daughters to bleed for an alien nation. Mike is a cuckold. Meaning he would never defend the interests of his people. The idea that White people, like the Jews, have the right to self determination would send this cuck into a screaming fit.

U.S. Tries to Stir Ethnic Division in Crimea

On Saturday, August 1st, Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko (who now acknowledges that his government is illegitimate and that his predecessor Viktor Yanukovych was overthrown in a February 2014 coup), sent greetings to an international conference of supporters of Tatars in Crimea, at the Second World Congress of the Crimean Tatars. He charged the current Crimean government (the government that Crimeans elected on 16 March 2014, rejoining Russia) of discriminating against Tatars. His message attacked the “torn imperial policies of the Kremlin,” and the “temporary occupation of Crimea by Russia.” He said that, “The Crimean Tatar people are again experiencing terror, and tens of thousands are thus forced to flee.” He thanked America’s Sunni ally Turkey for hosting this conference of pro-Saudi, Sunni Muslim, Crimeans.

Greece Succumbs to Imperialist Banksterism

In a nationwide referendum, 61%, of Greeks shouted okhi to ever-more severe austerity measures as the price for new loans and Greece’s remaining within the Eurozone. On July 7 the leaders of the 28 European countries gave the government of Alexis Tsipris two days to present “credible proposals” to its creditors or face expulsion from the Eurozone. Now as then, the Greek government capitulated in the wake of a German-led attack, only this time the weapon of choice was banks not tanks.

EU Kosovo mission accused of trying to silence whistleblower

The European Union’s biggest foreign mission has been accused of using its powers to try to silence a whistleblower who claims to have uncovered evidence of possible corruption.

Eulex, the foreign mission in Kosovo, is being taken to an employment tribunal by the London-based lawyer Maria Bamieh. She claims she was forced from her job as a prosecutor after exposing evidence of bribery among senior staff.

But now Bamieh and her solicitor have been formally warned by Eulex that they could be prosecuted and jailed if they disclose any details of her employment case to “non-parties,” including potential witnesses.

The prospect of criminal prosecution in Kosovo is particularly serious, given that it would be carried out by Eulex prosecutors and judges.

Jimmy Carter Is Correct that the U.S. Is No Longer a Democracy

On July 28th, Thom Hartmann interviewed former U.S. President Jimmy Carter, and, at the very end of his show (as if this massive question were merely an aftethought), asked him his opinion of the 2010 Citizens United decision and the 2014 McCutcheon decision, both decisions by the five Republican judges on the U.S. Supreme Court. These two historic decisions enable unlimited secret money (including foreign money) now to pour into U.S. political and judicial campaigns. Carter answered:

Institute of Peace’s Hawkish Chairman Wants Ukraine to Send Russians Back in Body Bags

The United States Institute of Peace is a publicly funded national institution chartered by the U.S. government to promote international peace through nonviolent conflict resolution.

But its chairman, Stephen Hadley, is a relentless hawk whose advocacy for greater military intervention often dovetails closely with the interests of Raytheon, a major defense contractor that pays him handsomely as a member of its board of directors.

Hadley, the former national security adviser to President George W. Bush, was an advocate for the 2003 invasion of Iraq and more recently appeared in the media to call for massive airstrikes in Syria. Over the last year, he has called for escalating the conflict in Ukraine.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Toward the end of the 2nd Sherlock Holmes movie, the Moriarty character makes a comment to the effect that war was coming, and he wanted a lock on the bullets and the bandages.

As Raytheon's spokeswhore, Hadley profits mightily from the deaths and maimings of others, and that is true for every Congressional representative with stock holdings in the military industrial complex.

Better face up to it; public positions and legislation are up for sale in this country to the highest bidder; and anyone's money can buy them.
