Tory Phillip Hammond brands political protesters as terrorists

Maya Foa, head of the death penalty team at Reprieve, said that Hammond was ‘alarmingly misinformed’ about the mass executions’ and that ‘By refusing to condemn these executions and parroting the Saudi’s propaganda, labelling those killed as terrorists, Mr Hammond is coming dangerously close to condoning Saudi Arabia’s approach.’

Week Thirteen of the Russian Intervention in Syria: Debunking the Lies

Ever since the first rumors began to circulate about an impending Russian military intervention in Syria the Internet and the media have been flooded with all sorts of silly rumors, myths and outright lies about what could/would happen. These rumors, myths and outright lies are still being spread today, and not only by pro-US interest groups, but even by supposedly pro-Russian “analysts”. All this nonsense completely obfuscates the reality of the Russian intervention in Syria (but maybe that was the goal all along?) and tries to paint the Russian operation as a failure

Worldwide condemnation of Saudi executions, beheadings & crucifixions

Saudis have been widely condemned for carrying out one of the largest mass executions in modern history, second only to ISIS massacres. On 3rd January they killed 47 people including Sheikh Nimr AlNimr, the prominent cleric who had called for reforming the hereditary tribal dictatorships of AlSaud and Alkhalifa. Some of those executed were beheaded; others crucified. This barbaric crime has shocked the world.

G. Edward Griffin Warns Against Oregon Standoff: "If continued on this course, a bloodbath is assured."

G. Edward Griffin, the author of the Creature From Jekyll Island, offers some analysis and criticism of the Oregon standoff, explaining that it is distinctly different from the situation in Nevada with the Bundys a few years ago. Griffin notes that "The protestors (not the Hammonds) were the ones who initiated physical force by breaking into the wildlife facility and occupying the property" and that "This leaves no possible resolution other than a test of military strength. If continued on this course, a bloodbath is assured."

Mercury Found In California’s Fog Could Harm The Food Chain

Every Californian has observed the Golden Gate Bridge disappear in a ‘cloud’ of fog, and though this is normally just a nuisance for passing ships, or a hindrance of the view from the Alamo Square, researchers have found alarming levels of mercury in the fog which could harm the ecosystem and human health.

Most of us know about avoiding mercury in fish due to health concerns, but the mercury in question here isn’t the same – it’s called monomethylmercury. In high enough levels, it can cause birth defects, kidney failure, and neurological impairment. Mercury compounds accumulate very easily in animals and humans, too, causing further health issues. This particular type of mercury is also one of the strongest known neurotoxins.


So far the levels of mercury detected in California’s fog are reportedly not high enough to affect humans adversely, but they can harm smaller animals in the food chain.

Redesigning Civilization -- with Permaculture

Modern agriculture, industry and finance all extract more than they give back, and the Earth is starting to show the strain. How did we get in this mess and what can we do to help our culture get back on track? The ecological design approach known as permaculture offers powerful tools for the design of regenerative, fair ways to provide food, energy, livelihood, and other needs while letting humans share the planet with the rest of nature. This presentation will give you insight into why our culture has become fundamentally unsustainable, and offers ecologically based solutions that can help create a just and sustainable society. This is the sequel to Toby's popular talk, "How Permaculture Can Save Humanity and The Planet, but not Civilization."

The Surprising Reason Why Canadians Are Literally Cutting Their Money in Half

It was reported last week that Canadian citizens have been cutting their official government money in half and using it as a localized alternative currency. The currency is called “Demi,” which means “half” in french. The Demi currency is being used specifically in the Gaspesie region of northern Quebec and is actually accepted by a number of local businesses.

The founders of the currency have specified that the half dollar notes are worth half of whatever value the original note was intended to be. For example, half of a $10 bill is worth $5, while half of a $20 bill is worth $10.

The idea for the Demi formed from a conversation that Gaspesie resident Martin Zibeau had with his friends who came from areas of Europe where alternative currencies were being used in place of the Euro.

UK Jewish Orthodox councils 'institutionalising marital captivity and upholding discriminatory religious laws'

Jewish Orthodox councils in the UK are “institutionalising marital captivity and upholding discriminatory religious laws” that victimise women and secular alternatives need to be introduced by politicians, according to an academic study being launched in Parliament.

New laws should be enacted in Westminster to give women of all faiths equal access to end their marriages, said the researcher Machteld Zee, ahead of releasing a book regarded as perhaps the most comprehensive analysis of religious courts in the UK.

The study by Ms Zee, from Leiden University in the Netherlands, first came to attention last month when The Independent revealed her findings that Muslim sharia courts allegedly set out to frustrate women whose husbands do not want them to leave. Her work has been backed by the crossbench peer Baroness Cox, who is sponsoring a law that could restrict religious courts and calls Ms Zee’s evidence the “tip of the iceberg”.

US Ground Troops Deployed in Syria's Aleppo

The US ground forces have been stationed in the surrounding areas of Tishrin Dam Northeast of Aleppo province after the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) seized full control of the dam from the ISIL nearly two weeks ago, media reports disclosed on Friday.
"The US troops are presently in control of the Tishrin Dam," the Arabic service of Deutsche Welle news channel quoted Syria's Local Coordinating Committees as saying on Friday.

The US deployment runs counter to President Obama's repeated claims that his country would have "no boots on the ground" in Iraq and Syria.

On November 25, the Syrian Local Coordinating Committees announced that the US officers and soldiers had entered the town of Kobani and on December 22 they set up an operations room with the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the town of Mesrin in the Northern part of Aleppo province in a bid to take control of Tishrin Dam.

Saudi Arabia Set to Try 4 Iranians on Terrorism, Spying Charges

The Riyadh government intends to try three Iranians on alleged terrorism charges and another individual for cooperation with Iran's intelligence ministry, the Saudi media reported.

The news comes as Saudi Arabia has sentenced another Iranian national to 13 years in jail on charges of trying to conduct terrorist attacks in the kingdom during the Hajj rituals. He will be deported after serving his term.

The Saudi media, however, did not elaborate on the venue and date of trial of the four Iranian nationals, or their identity.

The trial of Iranian nationals by Saudi Arabia comes after the kingdom cut its diplomatic ties with Iran in protest at an attack by a group of angry Iranian protesters at its embassy in Tehran.

Saudi Arabia has been pursuing a crisis-escalation policy against Iran during the last week.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Apparently, Saudi Arabian leadership has been given its marching orders to escalate against Iran until Iran pushes back militarily.

BBC denies deliberately undermining Corbyn by airing Doughty resignation

The controversy centers around a blog post, since deleted, in which it was claimed BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg “sealed the deal” to get Doughty to resign on air.

The post, written by BBC producer Andrew Alexander, is alleged to have said: “Just before 9am we learned from Laura Kuenssberg, who comes on the program every Wednesday ahead of PMQs, that she was speaking to one junior shadow minister who was considering resigning.

“I wonder, mused our presenter Andrew Neil, if they would consider doing it live on the show?”

The proposition was then put to Kuenssberg, who though it a “great idea.”

“Within the hour we heard that Laura had sealed the deal,” Alexander wrote, adding, “we knew his resignation just before PMQs would be a dramatic moment with big political impact.”

This led to accusations that the BBC team, not Doughty, made the choice to air the resignation minutes before PMQs.

‘Saudis Provoking Iran Into Overreaction’ to Hamper Nuclear Deal

US Secretary of State John Kerry said Thursday that there’s been significant progress towards full implementation of the Iranian deal. Speaking to journalists after a phone call with his Iranian counterpart - Mohammad Javad Zarif - Kerry praised Tehran’s efforts to implement the agreement.

Kerry’s recent statement comes after the Republican-led House Foreign Affairs Committee approved a bill that could undermine the Iranian deal.

According to Reuters, the legislation would require the White House to uphold its commitment not to ease pressure on Iran’s support for terrorism of its ballistic missile program.

Thus it would increase lawmakers’ oversight of the agreement, but critics say that the Republicans are simply trying to hamper the deal by violating its terms.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Looks like Israel's derriere-kissers in Congress have been vigilant in attempting to destroy the P5+1 deal, just as hard as they can.

I am very certain that the US-enabled Saudi action of mass executions of political prisoners, including the Shiite Imam, Nimr al-Nimr, was an attempt to create a provocation to which the US government hoped the Iranian government would respond militarily.

Bravo, Iran, for the reality that so far, you haven't

Because that point, the US "would have had no choice" but to militarily enable our "great friend" in the Middle East, with a human rights record just to the right of that of Attila the Hun, Saudi Arabia, against Iran.

But there is one teensy, tiny, minor problem with this scenario.

If the US militarily enables Saudi Arabia against Iran, just what country will, undoubtedly, come to Iran's aid?!?


I don't know who in the bowels of power in the US government believes that war against Russia would be a a great idea right now; but it is a definite confirmation of the American comedian Ron White's mantra: "You can't fix stupid!!"

And unfortunately, just because something is the most ham-fistedly, pig-headedly stupid thing the US government can do, is absolutely no guarantee that the US government will not do it!!

Also, as reported at sputniknews.com today:

Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr's beheading has shaken the Shiite population of the region, severing remaining ties between Saudi Arabia and Iran; to complicate matters further the execution took place amid the ongoing Syrian crisis, Germany-based American political analyst Phil Butler underscores. Washington signals that it is unable to heal an "old sectarian wound," trying to convince the readers that the situation in the Middle East is "out of the control" of Obama and Washington. Still, according to Butler, the reverse is absolutely true. "The story goes on to plant the seed of military support for Saudi Arabia should the situation escalate, which it is certain to with the help of the lame duck Obama," he points out. Riyadh's actions are a part of the West's Middle Eastern strategy aimed at partitioning of Syria and re-drawing the map of the Middle East. Saudi Arabia is not upsetting Washington's applecart, as the mainstream media is reporting; instead it is playing directly into the hands of those who instigated the Syrian civil war.

Hillary Emails Reveal True Motive for Libya Intervention

The New Year’s Eve release of over 3,000 new Hillary Clinton emails from the State Department has CNN abuzz over gossipy text messages, the “who gets to ride with Hillary” selection process set up by her staff, and how a “cute” Hillary photo fared on Facebook.

But historians of the 2011 NATO war in Libya will be sure to notice a few of the truly explosive confirmations contained in the new emails: admissions of rebel war crimes, special ops trainers inside Libya from nearly the start of protests, Al Qaeda embedded in the U.S. backed opposition, Western nations jockeying for access to Libyan oil, the nefarious origins of the absurd Viagra mass rape claim, and concern over Gaddafi’s gold and silver reserves threatening European currency.

'Beyond Description': Leaked Police Report Reveals Horrific Details of Cologne Sex Attacks
The city police are unhappy with the new development. The monopoly on the use of force belongs to the state, the police press service stated.
Following the mass attacks on women that occurred on New Year's Eve in Cologne, Düsseldorf residents decided to take initiative into their hands.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Watch for this movement to boom all over Europe, where these attacks have happened. As reported today at zerohedge.com:

On Thursday, we got what appears to be confirmation that the “hundreds” of suspects involved in a series of sexual assaults on German women were largely of Arab origin. According to German media, many of the men were asylum seekers who had recently entered the country from the war-torn Mid-East. The assaults occurred in the city center in Cologne, where eyewitnesses and victims say groups of marauding New Year’s revelers accosted women, in some instances making off with their belongings. Attacks were also reported in Hamburg, and Stuttgart. Initially, the incidents received little media coverage but soon the word was out and the backlash from the German public was palpable. Protests were staged in Cologne and opposition lawmakers lambasted Chancellor Angela Merkel for her open-door migrant policy which some say is destined to rip Germany’s social fabric to shreds. Meanwhile, Cologne mayor Henriette Reker got herself into a bit of hot water by suggesting that German women have a responsibility to deter attacks by staying at “arm’s length” from would-be assailants. She also said Germany “needs to explain to people from other cultures that the jolly and frisky attitude during our Carnival is not a sign of sexual openness.”

I would predict that there will also be an explosion in gun sales, both legal and illegal, where these attacks have been taking place, and beyond.

EPA, FDA stocking up on body armor during President Obama’s watch

As the U.S. engages in a national debate over the militarization of the police, federal data shows that government agencies charged with largely administrative roles are spending tens of millions of taxpayer dollars to purchase SWAT and military-style equipment.

Since FY 2006, 44 traditionally administrative agencies have spent over $71 million on items like body armor, riot helmets and shields, cannon launchers and police firearms and ammunition, according to federal spending data from watchdog group OpenTheBooks.com.

This comes in addition to the $330 million spent on such equipment in that period by traditional law enforcement agencies like the FBI, Secret Service and Drug Enforcement Administration.

Some examples of the purchases include:

Disclosure: Another 41 Foreign-Born Individuals Snagged On Terror Charges

Following the discovery of a terrorist cell in Texas allegedly operated by an Iraqi who entered the United States as a refugee, the Washington Free Beacon has learned of an additional 41 individuals who have been implicated in terrorist plots in the United States since 2014, bringing the total number of terrorists discovered since that time to 113, according to information provided by Congressional sources.

Since August, however, the Obama administration has stonewalled Congressional efforts to obtain more detailed immigration histories of these individuals, prompting frustration on Capitol Hill and accusation that the administration is covering up these histories to avoid exposing flaws in the U.S. screening process.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The only reason for the Obama administration is stonewalling on the records of these people, most probably, is that they are US assets, tasked with making the American people frightened that terrorists are going to strike us here at home any second.

And folks, if a massive terror attack DOES happen on American soil, it will mean that every agency responsible for keeping this country safe, like TSA, NSA, DHS CIA, ICE, and FBI are utterly impotent, should be collectively fired, immediately, en masse.

Financial Markets and the Global Economy: What Really Happened In 2015, And What Is Coming In 2016…

And of course during the recession that started in 2008, the velocity of money plunged precipitously. But then a funny thing happened when that recession supposedly “ended”. The velocity of money just kept going down, and now it has fallen to an all-time record low…

A big reason for this is the ongoing decline of the middle class. In 2015, we learned that middle class Americans now make up a minority of the population for the first time ever.

But if you go back to 1971, 61 percent of all Americans lived in middle class households.

Meanwhile, the share of the income pie that the middle class takes home has also continued to shrink.

In 1970, the middle class brought home approximately 62 percent of all income. Today, that number has fallen to just 43 percent.

IT is not a question of IF we are seeing the beginnings of one of the largest economic crashes the world has ever seen; it is only a question of when.

German Public Broadcaster Apologizes for Suppressing Report About Migrant Attacks

German public broadcaster ZDF has acknowledged that it was wrong to "delay" reporting on a wave of sexual assaults and robberies suspected to have been carried out by migrants from North Africa and the Middle East.

ZDF sat on the story for four days before reporting it, a decision that the broadcaster now calls a "misjudgment". Maybe ZDF was hoping it would all just go away? This is incredible:

“The news situation was clear enough. It was a mistake of the 7pm ‘heute’ show not to at least report the incidents,” wrote deputy chief editor Elmar Thevessen on the show’s Facebook page.

Editors had decided to postpone the news segment to Tuesday, the day Cologne’s city hall and police held a crisis meeting on the attacks, he wrote, admitting this was “a clear misjudgement”.

As the assaults have come to dominate German mainstream media, more women have come forward in Cologne and other cities about being groped and attacked on New Year’s Eve.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have noticed that the demand for firearms has gone through the roof in countries recently hit by the North African and Middle Eastern refugee crisis.

Obviously, the German government was pressuring ZDF not to publish this story; but the reality is, it was only a matter of time before it was going to come out.

Merkel may have just shot herself in the foot, politically, through approving this flood of refugees into the country; I would suggest that her days as head of the German government may be numbered, and we will see the rise of ultra-rightist organisations starting to emerge here, and in other European countries in which these refugees have been placed.

Eligibility questions causing headaches for Cruz camp, as McCain piles on

A casual jab by Donald Trump over Canada-born Ted Cruz’ eligibility for president has snowballed into a campaign trail headache for the Iowa GOP caucus front-runner.

The Texas senator was born in Calgary, Canada, a fact he’s hardly kept secret. Despite some questions last year about his eligibility to run, legal scholars have said Cruz indeed is a “natural born citizen” and eligible because his mother is American. Plus he renounced his Canadian citizenship in 2014.

But Trump, who famously challenged President Obama’s birthplace and eligibility years ago, dredged up the same issue with Cruz earlier this week, warning it could lead to a drawn-out court case.

Cruz tried to brush it off. But other lawmakers – most recently, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. – have kept the questions alive.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Look, this is really simple to resolve; allegedly, Eleanor Darragh Cruz, Ted Cruz's mom, was born in Wilmington, Delaware. There had to be a birth certificate floating around, right?!?

All Ted Cruz has to do, if in fact his mom's birth certificate exists, is produce his mother's birth certificate, corroborated by the State of Delaware, and the problem goes away.

But if he can't...... a legitimate issue does arise here.

The charges will consist of some of the following:

1. Improper disclosure or retention of classified information.

The FBI can recommend all they want, but it will be up to Obama's Attorney General Loretta Lynch whether or not to file charges, and I do not expect her to do so. But even so, obvious criminality and an Obama "get out of jail free" card will not look good to the voters!

By crushing Earth's lightest element with mind-boggling pressures, scientists have revealed an entirely new state of matter: phase V hydrogen. The squished hydrogen is a precursor to a state of matter first proposed in the 1930s, called atomic solid metallic hydrogen. When cooled to low enough temperatures, hydrogen (which on Earth is usually found as a gas) can become a solid; at high enough pressures, when the element solidifies, it turns into a metal. Planetary scientists think the interior of Jupiter is largely made of the stuff

Webmaster addition: Neil Ashcroft suggested that metallic hydrogen could be a room-temperature superconductor! The implications for zero loss power transmission, totally frictionless bearings, etc. are mind-boggling!

67 Countries the U.S. Is Obliged to Go to War For

The United States has entered a lot of treaties over the years, especially after the complicated network put in place after World War II. The Myth of Entangling Alliances by Michael Beckley sought to figure out a hard number for just how many countries the United States has agreed to defend in war. Thanks to NATO, ANZUS, OAS, and bilateral agreements, the U.S. has promised 67 countries protection. Here's a look at the list included in Beckley's paper:

Home About Antiwar.com Donate Blog US Casualties Contact Latest NewsWhy Is North Korea Our Problem?

For Xi Jinping, it has been a rough week.

Panicked flight from China’s currency twice caused a plunge of 7 percent in her stock market, forcing a suspension of trading.

Kim Jong Un, the megalomaniac who runs North Korea, ignored Xi’s warning and set off a fourth nuclear bomb. While probably not a hydrogen bomb as claimed, it was the largest blast ever in Korea.

And if Pyongyang continues building and testing nuclear bombs, Beijing is going to wake up one day and find that its neighbors, South Korea and Japan, have also acquired nuclear weapons as deterrents to North Korea.

And should Japan and South Korea do so, Taiwan, Vietnam and Manila, all bullied by Beijing, may also be in the market for nukes.

Hence, if Beijing refuses to cooperate to de-nuclearize North Korea, she could find herself, a decade hence, surrounded by nuclear weapons states, from Russia to India and from Pakistan to Japan.

America Revisits the Dark Side

Candidates and reporters alike have ignored the obvious larger point – if, that is, we weren’t living in a country that had given itself a blanket pass on the issue of war crimes. Carpet-bombing cities, torturing prisoners, and rendering lands uninhabitable are all against the law. They are, in fact, grave crimes. That even critics of these comments will not identify such potential acts as war crimes can undoubtedly be attributed, at least in part, to the fact that no one – other than a few low-level military personnel and a CIA whistleblower who spoke publicly about the Agency’s torture agenda – has been prosecuted in the U.S. for the startling array of crimes already committed in the so-called War on Terror.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US government, in its lust for regime change for any foreign government it might not like, tortures; poisons; bombs; invades; destroys civilian infrastructure; and assassinates, and takes absolutely no moral responsibility for it whatsoever.

Welcome, my friends, to what Amerika has become in the 21st century.

And that rapid, thumping sound you hear, across this land right now, is that of our founding fathers, and the women who loved them, turning over in their graves at warp speed, in despair of what this country has become.

How Obama Enables Atrocities

How Obama Enables Atrocities
January 4, 2016

Exclusive: President Obama seems so scared of offending the Saudis and their Israeli allies that he will tolerate almost any outrage, including Saudi Arabia’s mass beheadings and/or shootings of the regime’s enemies including a Shiite political leader who dared criticize the monarchy, writes Robert Parry.

By Robert Parry

As the New Year dawns, the neocons and their liberal interventionist sidekicks remain firmly in control of Official Washington’s storylines – on Syria, Russia and elsewhere – even as their policies continue to wreak havoc across the Mideast and threaten the stability of Europe and indeed the future of civilization.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Enabling the kind of atrocities created by the Saudi Arabian government and monarchy against political prisoners is somewhat akin to handing a serial arsonist boxes of lighters, nitroglycerin, detonation chord, TNT, and then expecting them not to do something nasty with that equipment.

The US government has so lost the moral high ground here that it is absolutely vilely deplorable.

The Real Story Behind the Hammond Ranch Affair

Yesterday, I exposed, once again, the fact that minerals are being taken from mines such as the one on the Hammond Ranch and what was attempted at the Bundy Ranch. This is happening all over the country. In yesterday’s article I noted the New York Times article which exposed the facts related to this subject.

The prosecution of Hammond family is designed to get them off of their land through breaking them financially by creating expensive legal bills and federal fines. Once the Hammonds are gone, the globalists get to have their way with the lands resources.

VW Refuses to Give U.S. States Documents in Emissions Inquiries

Citing German privacy laws, Volkswagen has refused to provide emails or other communications among its executives to attorneys general in the United States, impeding American investigations into the company’s emissions-cheating scandal, according to officials in several states.

The revelation signals a turning point in the now openly fractious relations between Volkswagen and American investigators, after claims by the Justice Department, in its own inquiry this week, that the company had recently “impeded and obstructed” regulators and provided “misleading information.”

Volkswagen in September admitted that it had installed software created to cheat on emissions tests in 11 million of its diesel vehicles worldwide. A 48-state civil investigation is being led by a half-dozen states, including New York and Connecticut. Attorneys general in California and Texas are conducting their own inquiries of the company, which includes the Audi and Porsche brands.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If Volkswagen will not cooperate, there is not much the States Attorneys General can do to force compliance from a foreign corporation.

?California Governor Jerry Brown finally declared a state of emergency on Wednesday, concerning the ongoing, currently unstoppable methane gas leak spewingfrom Aliso Canyon that has created a nightmare for residents of Porter Ranch.
“I will tell you, this goes well beyond Porter Ranch. We’ve had complaints from as far as Chatsworth, Northridge, and Granada Hills,” emphasized Los Angeles City Councilman Mitchell Englander during a Porter Ranch town hall meeting on December 28. “Apparently this plume of toxic chemicals and whatever it might be, doesn’t know zip codes […] This is the equivalent of the BP oil spill on land, in a populated community.”

Aliso Canyon sits less than two and a half miles from Porter Ranch and less than 30 miles from the city of Los Angeles — the second most populous city in the United States — whose outlying total statistical area includes nearly 18 million residents, as of 2013.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Southern California Gas company has just become the the US's equivalent to Japan's TEPCO, in terms of horrifically bad management and maintenance, which has led to this nightmare.

This gross mismanagement will create ongoing health issues and challenges for Californians for generations to come.

Alaskan bird die off update: "The number is totally off the charts!" Nearly 10,000 dead murres on a 1-mile stretch of beach along with hundreds of dead star fish...Lack of food blamed

Something is killing Alaska's common murres.

In the summer of 2015, the murres also suffered a complete colony collapse and failed to breed. Almost all the dead birds are murres, seabirds that in the summer swim in huge rafts near Gull Island or offshore.

On a still summer evening, huge flocks can be seen flying just feet above the ocean surface.
With big, duck-like feet, black backs and white breasts, they look like penguins.
On land they're helpless, but on sea they can swim and dive deep.

Bird experts advise beach walkers to leave carcasses alone.

Many of the murres appear emaciated and have starved to death, but scientists studying the die off don't yet know what's causing the murres to starve.

Not only are murres starving, they're not breeding.

As we've exhaustively documented, corruption is rampant in the the U.S. today.

In addition, widespread corruption leads to runaway inequality. Specifically, one of the biggest causes of runaway inequality is that the big banks are manipulating every market, and committing massive crimes. Fraud disproportionately benefits the big banks, makes boom-bust cycles more severe, and otherwise harms the economy … all of which increase inequality and warp the market. These actions artificially redistribute wealth from honest, hard-working people to a handful of crooks. And corrupt government officials have aided and abetted this.

Runaway inequality - in turn - leads to the fall of empires ... through unrest or revolution.

Has the State Department released a smoking gun in the Hillary Clinton e-mail scandal? In a thread from June 2011, Hillary exchanges e-mails with Jake Sullivan, then her deputy chief of staff and now her campaign foreign-policy adviser, in which she impatiently waits for a set of talking points. When Sullivan tells her that the source is having trouble with the secure fax, Hillary then orders Sullivan to have the data stripped of its markings and sent through a non-secure channel.

Obama's Crying During Speech Compared To Adolf Hitler's Fake Tears For Nazis' Gun Control Laws [Video]

Barack Obama’s crying during his gun control speech is awakening the conspiracy theories already.

Do Hillary's Top Dollar Wall St. Speeches Disqualify Her For Top Job?

Hillary made $11.8 million for giving 51 talks to mostly corporate audience in 2014 and the first three months of 2015. This was legal because she was not in public office, and had not formally announced her candidacy for president, though everyone, and I mean everyone, knew she was running. She was working fulltime at organizing her campaign.

So Hillary pocketed all this money, usually around $225,000 for a 30-45 minute talk, and put it into her personal bank account. She complained about being poor when Bill left the White House, but now she has parlayed her public service into making her one of the richest people in the nation, easily in the top 1 percent.

88 Year Old Survivor of Japanese Sex-Slave Camp Rejects Agreement With Japan

n the waning days of December, foreign ministers from Japan and South Korea announced with great fanfare a “resolution” to the so-called “comfort women” issue. According to historical documents and extensive testimony, some 200,000 people, mostly Asian women and girls from Japanese colonies, some as young as 10, were captured or lured with false promises of factory work or other types of employment. They were then sent to brothels to provide sex to Japanese soldiers. There they were held captive as sexual slaves and raped dozens of times a day. Some were held captive for many months or even years; the majority did not survive their enslavement.

"We Came, We Saw, He Died" – Revisiting The Incredible Disaster That Is Libya

In retrospect, Obama’s intervention in Libya was an abject failure, judged even by its own standards. Libya has not only failed to evolve into a democracy; it has devolved into a failed state. Violent deaths and other human rights abuses have increased severalfold. Rather than helping the United States combat terrorism, as Qaddafi did during his last decade in power, Libya now serves as a safe haven for militias affiliated with both al Qaeda and the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS). The Libya intervention has harmed other U.S. interests as well: undermining nuclear nonproliferation, chilling Russian cooperation at the UN, and fueling Syria’s civil war.?

Why We Fear the IRS

The IRS scam, on the other hand, works entirely by fear. It takes people who haven’t done anything wrong, and makes them afraid that they have. That’s a pretty hefty achievement. Imagine trying to extort money from someone by, say, claiming that they had murdered someone. You might elicit laughter, or bewilderment, but you’d rarely elicit much cash.

Which raises the obvious question: How did we get into a situation where it’s so easy for people to believe that the IRS is about to arrest them for a crime they weren’t even aware of having committed?

You guessed it: The IRS is incredibly powerful, and the tax code is incredibly opaque.

Academic Freedom in America? Tenured Professor Questioning Official Sandy Hook Shootings Narrative Fired

South Florida University (SFU) tenured Professor James Tracy questioned inconsistencies and anomalies in the official narrative – reinforced by the corporate media unwillingness to ask tough questions and demand clear answers.

Tracy questioned whether any shootings took place – “at least in the way law enforcement authorities and the nation’s news media” described events, unquestionably reporting the official narrative.

Contradictions abound. Key questions remain unanswered. How did one alleged gunman fire so many shots in so little time and supposedly inflict so many casualties?

In five to seven minutes, Connecticut’s top coroner, Wayne Carver, and police officials said Lanza shot each victim from three to 11 times – 182 shots, one every 2 seconds plus likely misses.

1952 Immigration and Nationality Act, a.k.a. the McCarran-Walter Act

Otherwise known as the McCarran-Walter Act, the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 was meant to exclude certain immigrants from immigrating to America, post World War II and in the early Cold War. The McCarran-Walter Act moved away from excluding immigrants based simply upon country of origin. Instead it focused upon denying immigrants who were unlawful, immoral, diseased in any way, politically radical etc. and accepting those who were willing and able to assimilate into the US economic, social, and political structures, which restructured how immigration law was handled. Furthermore, the most notable exclusions were anyone even remotely associated with communism which in the early days of the Cold War was seen as a serious threat to US democracy. The main objective of this was to block any spread of communism from outside post WWII countries, as well as deny any enemies of the US during WWII such as Japan and favor “good Asian” countries such as China.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Donald Trump was recently severely criticized for suggesting that the U.S. should limit or suspend the immigration of certain ethnic groups, nationalities, and even people of certain religions (Muslims).

The criticisms condemned such a suggestion as, among other things, being “Un-American”, dumb, stupid, reckless, dangerous and racist. Congressmen and Senators swore that they would never allow such legislation, and the president called such a prohibition on immigration unconstitutional.


It seems that the selective immigration ban is already law and has been applied on several occasions.

Known as the McCarran-Walter Act, the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 allows for the suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by president.

Why Washington DC Turns Its Back on Saudi Brutality – and Blames Everything on Iran

That the Wahhabi establishment in Saudi Arabia hated and feared Sheikh al-Nimr and would not stand for his challenging their power comes as no surprise, the Saudi government is no friend of its resident dissidents and a pathological hatred of Shi’ites is firmly engrained in the government – sponsored Wahhabi sect’s theological outlook.

I received a call on my home phone recently from someone who identified himself as Officer Jason Dean with the Investigative Bureau of the Department of Treasury. He said an arrest warrant had been issued in my name for failure to respond to IRS Notice CP503 — a third reminder — informing me that I owed $5,347 in back taxes. He said my home and cell phones were being traced and I should not attempt to leave the city.

“That’s ridiculous,” I said, “I never received any notices.”

“That is not my concern,” he replied. “We’re only calling you as a courtesy to inform you that you will be arrested and charged with failure to meet federal taxation requirements, malicious conduct, and theft by deception. You will be arrested within the next two hours and held in custody for six months pending an investigation.”

And just like that, I was caught in what has become the biggest tax scam in American history.

FLASHBACK - No Big Bang? Quantum equation predicts universe has no beginning

The universe may have existed forever, according to a new model that applies quantum correction terms to complement Einstein's theory of general relativity. The model may also account for dark matter and dark energy, resolving multiple problems at once.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Physicists accept that matter and energy cannot be created or destroyed. It therefore follows that matter and energy have no beginning or end. Ancient humans assumed that all things in the world such as rocks and the Moon had feelings because humans did, and today humans assume that everything has a beginning or end because we do. But our beginnings and ends are neither creation not destruction but points in time where the matter and energy contained within us changes organization by the process of gestation and death. Our projection of "birth and death" onto the universe may be as out of touch with reality as the projection of our emotions onto rocks and the Moon.

There have been a great many reasons to question the Big Bang theory, but its popularity is supported by those whose world view or religion demands that all things have a moment of beginning as our consciousness does.

Maine governor under fire after blaming state's heroin epidemic on men named 'D-Money, Smoothie and Shifty' who he also accuses of 'impregnating young, white girls'

Governor LePage was speaking at a town hall meeting on Wednesday in Bridgton, Maine when the question of the growing drug problem in his state was brought up by an attendee.

He responded by saying; 'These are guys with the name D-Money, Smoothie, Shifty – these types of guys – they come from Connecticut and New York, they come up here, they sell their heroin, they go back home.'

He then added; 'Incidentally, half the time they impregnate a young, white girl before they leave, which is a real sad thing because then we have another issue we have to deal with down the road.'

Cameron’s embarrassing slip-up reveals how much he loves the growing gap between rich and poor

‘Is the quest for equality in Britain in safe hands? Well David Cameron seemed to suggest it isn’t during 2016’s first prime minister’s questions when he made the following Freudian slip:
