Some UK schools are using 'anti-radicalization software' to spy on kids, because terrorism

A child is never too young to start on the path toward violent jihad — at least according to the logic of Britain's Counter-Terrorism and Security Act of 2015. Luckily, there's an app for that.

UK schools have an important role to play under the new law, which will start being enforced on July 1. In the language of the act, headmasters, teachers, and other staff must "have due regard to the need to prevent people from being drawn into terrorism." I

WHY THE WAR AGAINST BDS? ….. THE REAL REASON

Do you wonder why Benjamin Netanyahu is declaring war on BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions), and Sheldon Adelson and Haim Saban are holding a secret Las Vegas conference to fight it, and Yair Lapid is saying that the people behind BDS plotted 9/11, and Ari Shavit is calling the movement “evil and sophisticated”?

Alabama child services abducts autistic boys damaged by MMR vaccine; starves, forcibly drugs them in foster care

The cries of the innocent who seek justice in today's America are reaching a piercing crescendo. Case after case of unwarranted medical child abduction portends a ruthless totalitarian future for every single parent trying to raise children in this country -- this, as a result of growing oppression from a hostile police state that sees nothing wrong with ripping children away from their parents for no legitimate reason and throwing them into the foster system.

Such a harrowing scenario is exemplified in the ongoing case of Arnold and Alan Cullins, a pair of autistic boys from Alabama who were recently abducted from their birth mother without cause. Alabama's Department of Human Resources (DHR), commonly known in other states as Child Protective Services (CPS), literally snatched the two brothers away from their mother not long after she was admitted to a hospital with cardiac issues, and is now holding them captive.

German daily says IMF 'torpedoed' European Commission proposal on Greece debt

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has “torpedoed” a recent bailout deal proposed by the European Commission to Greece which was made in an attempt to avoid a potential default by the cash-strapped country, a report says.

Tel Aviv moves to block release of UN report on Israeli war crimes

Tel Aviv seeks to prevent the release of the findings of a UN investigation into Israeli war crimes against Palestinians in Gaza, with the prime minister of the regime labeling such a move as a “waste of time.”

Addressing Israeli ministers on Sunday, Benjamin Netanyahu claimed that “whoever wants a baseless automatic accusation against Israel can waste their time reading the UN report.”

Israel’s UN Mission Accused of Deceiving NY Member States

An official at one of the permanent missions for a European country told Days of Palestine that the Israeli mission had circulated misleading information about its human rights record in occupied Palestine.

“We received emails from the Israeli mission, including direct instructions, which is against our sovereignty as a state, not to believe the recent Human Rights Watch report and rely only on two organisations they recommended,” the official said.

“When we googled these NGOs, we knew that they were Israelis,” the official, who preferred to keep the name of his Western-European country unknown, added.

He further criticised the Israeli behaviour at the UN, which is often supported by the United States. “We are disgusted in some of the European countries about what Israel and the US are doing,” he said, “It is rather shameful that Israel attempts to mislead us.”

Labour peer Lord Janner accused of child sex abuse wrote to Michael Jackson congratulating him on being cleared of molesting a child

Suspected paedophile Lord Janner wrote to Michael Jackson congratulating him on being cleared of child sex charges, it emerged yesterday.

The Labour peer, who has avoided prosecution over 22 child abuse allegations, sent the letter shortly after the singer was cleared by an American jury of molesting a 13-year-old cancer survivor.

Using personalised House of Lords paper, he wrote: ‘I was so very pleased at the news of your acquittal. What a terrible time you have endured.’

Hidden Dispensary Raid Video Shows Cops Eating Pot-Laced Baked Goods, Joking About Assaulting Amputee

The footage shows that eight officers had masks on and their guns drawn when they entered Sky High Holistic, shouting “everybody on the ground” to customers and workers. After clearing the building of everyone present, the police began to remove the store’s mounted surveillance cameras, though they did not get the ones hidden by the owners when they heard about the upcoming raid.

Marla James, the amputee seen in the footage, intends to sue the city for allegations of police misconduct. Her reasons stem from a part of the video showing that as soon as she left the building, the cops started to crack jokes about her condition. One cop even said, “I was about to kick her in her f—ing nub.”

“They intimidated me. They threatened me,” James said, who is considered legally blind. “What they did, it was like shooting fish in a barrel.”

Clinton Campaign Manager Denies that Polls Show Voters Don’t Trust Hillary

The Hillary Clinton campaign took a bit of a bizarre turn on Sunday when her campaign manager, Robby Mook, went on national television and denied the existence of polls showing that voters don’t trust her.

Face the Nation host John Dickerson asked Mook how Clinton overcomes the trust issue, which Democratic strategists and Clinton supporters see as her biggest issue in light of those polls.

“Well, first of all, no poll shows that voters don’t trust Hillary Clinton,” Mook said. “No poll says that.”

Ukraine to Get New IMF Loans Despite Inability to Repay Private Lenders and Another Country Falls into Permanent Debt to Loan Sharks.

Like the United States, all of Europe and most of the world.
In spite the grievous state of the Ukrainian economy, the IMF said it will continue to lend money (backed by what? The paper it’s printed on) to Ukraine, so Kiev can complete economic restructuring
Despite Keynesian economic theory that you can borrow your way out of debt, you can’t.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The United States, all of Europe and the IMF will continue to lend money to Ukraine, so Kiev can wage war on their own people and provoke a confrontation with Russia.

American empire imploding both at home & abroad

For all the massive destructive power in its arsenal, the Vietnamese had exposed US imperialism as a giant with feet of clay. The name given to this period of hard power retreat was the ‘Vietnam syndrome’ and lasted from 1975 to 1991, when the US and an international coalition embarked on the First Gulf War to force Iraqi troops out of Kuwait.

We are witnessing a similar period of US imperial decline now with regard to Washington’s inability to stage large-scale military operations. It arrived as a consequence of the failed occupations of Afghanistan and Iraq, both of which achieved nothing except the eruption of terrorism and extremism across the region, and by extension the world.

Is Deutsche Bank The Next Lehman?

Looking back at the Lehman Brothers collapse of 2008, it’s amazing how quickly it all happened. In hindsight there were a few early-warning signs, but the true scale of the disaster publicly unfolded only in the final moments before it became apparent that Lehman was doomed.

...

If Deutsche Bank is the next Lehman, we will not know until events are moving at an uncontrollable and accelerating speed. The nature of all fractional-reserve banks — who are by definition bankrupt at all times – is to project an aura of stability until that illusion has already begun to implode.

Dershowitz spills the beans: Supreme Court’s Jerusalem case impact on Iran deal

Alan Dershowitz has been giving a few interviews this week lambasting Mondays’ Supreme Court decision overturning an unconstitutional 2002 law on Jerusalem. Predictably, he doesn’t like it. According to Dershowitz, the ruling is not only “silly” and “utterly unnecessary“–it’s also “dangerous to the world”.

Why? because Dershowitz thinks it gives too much power to the President over Congress regarding the Iran deal. He’s wrong but it’s interesting for what it revealed about the intentions of the parties pushing the case.

During an interview broadcast last night on an Israeli TV station he spilled the beans.

US archbishop resigns after archdiocese charged with coverup

Pope Francis has started making good on his promise to not let even the most senior churchmen get away with sex abuse or cover-up.

    Press TV-Gilad Atzmon on Steven Salaita, University of Illinois and Jewish Power

    A leading academic group has slammed the University of Illinois for refusing to employ a professor over his anti-Israel tweets.
    The American Association of University Professors says the decision to withdraw Steven Salaita’s job offer is against the principle of academic freedom. Salaita lost the opportunity over his Twitter posts which exposed Israel’s atrocities in the Gaza Strip. The group has described Salaita’s tweets as expressions of outrage in strong language over the war in Gaza. The University’s chancellor has reacted to the censure, saying it will have repercussions and will be taken seriously.

    US and Israel Bar Palestinian Filmmaker From NYC Film Premiere About Intifada Cows

    The annual Human Rights Watch International Film Festival is underway here in New York City, but one of its featured directors won’t be able to attend his film’s US premiere this weekend. That’s because Israel recently deemed Palestinian filmmaker Amer Shomali a "security threat" and prevented him from traveling to Jerusalem to obtain a US visa. Then he went to Amman, Jordan, where the US approved a visa but said their visa machine was broken. Shomali had previously attended half a dozen European festivals without incident, and his film has drawn international acclaim.

    Webmaster's Commentary: 

    Apparently it is a First Amendment right to Freedom of Speech to allow Pamela Geller to insult Muslims all day long, but this man is not allowed to enter US to attend showing of his film in NYC.

    Consumers Not Following Orders

    Last week the government reported personal income and spending for April. After months of blaming non-existent consumer spending on cold weather, shockingly occurring during the Winter, the captured mainstream media pundits, Ivy League educated Wall Street economist lackeys, and Keynesian loving money printers at the Fed have run out of propaganda to explain why Americans are not spending money they don’t have. The corporate mainstream media is now visibly angry with the American people for not doing what the Ivy League propagated Keynesian academic models say they should be doing.

    NJ court rules for nurse in vaccine-refusal firing

    A nurse was unfairly denied unemployment benefits after she was fired for refusing a flu shot without claiming a religious or medical exemption, a New Jersey appeals court ruled Thursday.

    The three-judge panel wrote that the hospital's policy of allowing religious or medical exemptions to the flu shot requirement "unconstitutionally discriminated against" plaintiff June Valent by rejecting her refusal to be vaccinated for secular reasons.

    Valent was working as a nurse at Hackettstown Community Hospital in 2010 when the hospital's parent company began requiring employees to take the flu vaccine unless they had medical or religious reasons not to. Employees claiming an exemption were required to sign a form and provide documentation. Anyone refusing the vaccine was required to wear a mask while at work.

    4) This anti Snowden non-story – even the Sunday Times admits there is no evidence anybody has been harmed – is timed precisely to coincide with the government’s new Snooper’s Charter act, enabling the security services to access all our internet activity. Remember that GCHQ already has an archive of 800,000 perfectly innocent British people engaged in sex chats online.

    5) The paper publishing the story is owned by Rupert Murdoch. It is sourced to the people who brought you the dossier on Iraqi Weapons of Mass Destruction, every single “fact” in which proved to be a fabrication. Why would you believe the liars now?

    Dude, where's my Humvee? Islamic State capturing Iraqi equipment at alarming rate

    Iraqi security forces lost 2,300 Humvee armored vehicles when Islamic State overran the northern city of Mosul in June 2014, Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said on Sunday in an interview with Iraqiya state television. Coupled with previous losses of American weapons, the conclusion is simple: The United States is effectively supplying Islamic State with tools of war the militant group cannot otherwise hope to acquire from its patrons.

    In addition to the Humvees, Iraqi forces previously abandoned significant types and numbers of heavy weapons to Islamic State. For example, losses to Islamic State include at least 40 M1A1 main battle tanks, as well as small arms and ammunition, including 74,000 machine guns, and as many as 52 M198 howitzer mobile gun systems.

    "We lost a lot of weapons," Abadi admitted.

    U.S. Catholic Bishops Release Barrage of Propaganda on 'Climate Change' Preceding Pope Francis' Encyclical on Ecology this Thursday

    In anticipation of Pope Francis' much ballyhooed encyclical on ecology this Thursday June 18, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has released a barrage of propaganda regarding 'climate change' and carbon pollution standards. Their rhetoric on all this carbon stuff is tedious and annoying to read. For example, one of their documents states: "The broader religious community shares a deep conviction that the issue of global climate change presents an unprecedented threat to the integrity of life on Earth..." I wish they would put forth even one third the effort that they do addressing the EPA, Obama and Congress on 'climate change,' and instead put some of that effort into persuading Obama, the Defense Department, and the Secretary of State and Congress to stop all the unjust wars, the genocide, torture, rape of Muslims worldwide, the fracking, the GMO, the poison vaccines, the U.S. police state, and the spying, groping, and endless civil rights abuses which assault our dignity.

    NZ Govt signs up for Chinese banking initiative

    The Government has formally agreed to become a founding member of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank - an initiative led by China because it wanted more influence in the world's banking systems to reflect its importance in the world economy.

    The bank will have initial capital of close to $139 billion to invest in infrastructure projects in Asia, and New Zealand's paid contribution will be about $125 million over five years.

    Finance Minister Bill English said New Zealand was the first western developed country to join negotiations with China to set up the bank.

    "Our membership will enhance our already strong economic, trade and investment links with the Asian region."

    He said the bank would address a significant gap in infrastructure investment in the Asian region.

    Hillary Clinton’s greatest billionaire backer has been Haim Saban, a dual United States-Israel citizen and hardline supporter of Israel, who has openly commented, “I’m a one-issue guy, and my issue is Israel.”

    It would not be beyond the realm of possibility that those who handed over tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars to the Clinton Foundation (some of which took place while Hillary was Secretary of State) or to the couple themselves for speaker fees expected favors in return.

    Israel confronts former soldiers on tell-all mission

    Occupied Jerusalem: An organisation of former Israeli soldiers dedicated to shedding light on the dark side of the country’s military is coming increasingly under fire, roiling a country in the grips of a battle against the burgeoning threat of international isolation and boycotts.

    The group, Breaking the Silence, says that without its work stories of improper or even illegal behaviour against Palestinians would remain hidden from an Israeli public that reveres the military. But the group has come under attack from legislators who threaten its funding and say it could help turn Israel into a pariah state.

    Since its founding in 2004, Breaking the Silence has collected the testimonies of more than 1,000 veterans in a bid to expose the underbelly of the decades-old occupation of the West Bank. It has taken those accounts to audiences in Israel and around the world, including a recent 10-day photo exhibit in Zurich, Switzerland.
