THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

"It does not matter if the war is not real, or when it is real, it does not matter if victory is not possible...The war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous...The essential act of modern warfare is the destruction of the produce of human labor... A hierarchial society is only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance...In principle the war effort is always planned to keep society on the brink of starvation...The war is waged by the ruling group against it's own subjects, and it's object is not victory over Eurasia or East Asia ( or Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, or Iran) but to keep the very structure of society intact." -- George Orwell, 1984

It's Time for Washington to Get Out of Bed With the Wahhabists Saudis

When is enough, enough? Another day, another terrorist attack?

How is it possible that the United States is an "ally" with a regime as brutal as Assad that refuses to stop spreading its hateful, misogynistic anti-secular Wahhabists ideology all over the world (hereandhere)? And, how is it that We the People of the United States, a beacon of democracy throughout the world are tolerating a Congress who have been shamefully silent on this medieval self-anointed "royal family" of Islamic extremist bankrollers and terrorist enablers?

Anti-gun Austin protesters wear communist propaganda, wave dildos, run fart machines... and say they are terrified of WHITE people... PHOTOS

This bizarre little man approached me and announced that he was a gay Latino and that he was afraid of me because my skin was WHITE. In other words, this guy is an admitted racist.

Can you imagine the outrage if I had walked up to a black person and said the same thing to them?

Same globalist newspaper that pushes Monsanto propaganda as 'science' says we can stop radical Islam by being 'nicer' to terrorists

"We cannot win this war by killing them. We cannot kill our way out of this war," she said, without a hint of evidence that she even realized the irony of what she had just said.

But then, in her interview with MSNBC's Chris Matthews, she dropped this gem: "We need in the longer term – we need the longer term to go after the root causes that leads people to join these groups. Whether it's lack of opportunity for jobs..."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If lack of jobs were the real cause of terror, the US, with 42 million people unable to find work, would be seeing beheadings in every town. The real cause of ISIS terror is US covert creation and use of ISIS to redraw the map of the Middle East!

It's Not Just the Poor Who Can't Make Rent. New research from Harvard says that even renters with annual incomes of $45,000 face unaffordable rents in many cities, with potentially far-reaching effects.

"It's moving up the income ladder," said Chris Herbert, Managing Director of the Joint Center For Housing Studies at Harvard. The group found that roughly half of families who earn between $30,000 and just under $45,000 a year and rent spend more than 30 percent of what they make on rent.

World Leaders Just Agreed To A "Historic" Climate Accord... Which Is Non-Binding And Has No Enforcement Language

Great news! The "greatest threat to future generations of the world" has apparently been solved. World leaders Saturday adopted an historic international climate accord in Paris, the first-ever agreement to commit almost every country to fight climate change. However, as we knew all along and just got confirmation, the 31-page pact does not have binding language or a mechanism to force countries to live up to the promises to cut greenhouse gases emissions or provide money for developing and poor nations to cope with the effects of global warming.

Basically, COP21 was a massive taxpayer-funded boondoggle, in which "leaders" enjoyed all the perks of Paris for two weeks, burned through hundreds of millions in public funding, and created millions of tons in greenhouse gases (what do you think to private jets and government 747s use to fly?) that has achieved absolutely nothing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

A non-existent problem, human-caused global warming, got a non-existent solution, officials partying in Paris at your expense!

How Britain abolished the slave trade - and then reestablished it

A million plus subjects coerced into slavery

The abolition of the African slave trade put Britain in a dilemma: Its economic engine still depended on slavery to run.

So it looked to India, the Empire's jewel in the crown, which had millions of unemployed laborers who could not read or write.

Signed up by a thumb print, hundreds of thousands were shipped off to sugar plantations world-wide never to return. They knew nothing of what lay in store for them.

Paul Craig Roberts: The Neoconservatives’ Hegemonic Goal Of Making Sovereign Countries Extinct Is Bringing Instead The Extinction Of Planet Earth

In other words, Russia was misled by believing that the West respects and abides by the values that it professes. In fact, these “Western values” are merely a cover for the unbridled evil of which the West consists.

The Western peoples are so dimwitted that they have not yet understood that the “war on terror” is, in fact, a war to create terror that can be exported to Muslim areas of Russia and China in order to destabilize the two countries that serve as a check on Washington’s unilateral, hegemonic power.

What is Donald Trump doing to media reality?

In the middle of this campaign storm, Trump and the media are joined at the hip. The media created him, and now they can't shake him off. He's a fascist, he's a racist, the pundits say, but it doesn't matter. They keep trying to dig his grave and put him in it, but there is no funeral. The more they attack him, the more excitement they generate.

If it turned out The Donald were a closet hermaphrodite, would it really matter? Or would his followers say, "Wow, that'll show those LGBT fanatics."

Now, throw into the mix how large numbers of people feel about open borders, terror attacks, gun control, and the export of American jobs overseas---their guy, Trump, is reflecting those feelings with unmistakably decisive remarks, without a teleprompter, without sing-song political-android vagueness...so you have a super-potent catalyst roaming the countryside, blowing people out of their passive minds.

CNN Anchor Calls Out Jews as Terrorists

From a period of 1980 to 1985 there were a reported 18 terror attacks committed in the United States by Jews, 15 of them committed by the Jewish Defense League,” Banfield said. “The head of the Jewish Defense league was in jail awaiting trial … accused of trying to bomb a mosque in Culver City, trying to bomb [US Congressman] Darrel Issa’s office, an Arab-American.”

Jews are of course flipping out. You aren’t ever supposed to mention that Jews are terrorists. It’s anti-Semitic.

Economic growth: How it works; how it fails; why wealth disparity occurs

Economists have put together models of how an economy works, but these models were developed years ago, when the world economy was far from limits. These models may have been reasonably adequate when they were developed, but there is increasing evidence that they don’t work in an economy that is reaching limits. For example, my most recent post, “Why ‘supply and demand’ doesn’t work for oil,” showed that when the world is facing the rising cost of oil extraction, “supply and demand” doesn’t work in the expected way.

In order to figure out what really does happen, we need to consider findings from a variety of different fields, including biology, physics, systems analysis, finance, and the study of past economic collapses. Since I started studying the situation in 2005, I have had the privilege of meeting many people who work in areas related to this problem.

Tanks as toys: German police raid turns up WW2-era armament in pensioner’s home

Reportedly the old geezer was being beaten with a rubber hose so that he would give up the damn U-Boat that goes with the torpedo! Those old Nazis never give up!

German police found a WWII tank, an anti-aircraft gun, and a torpedo in a raid on a house belonging to an elderly man. The man’s property had been searched previously on suspicion that stolen Nazi art was being stored there.

The entire contents of the heavy weapons trove, which had been hidden by its 78-year-old owner, were from the World War II era. The biggest pieces of equipment included a 45-ton Panther battle tank, a 3.5 inch anti-aircraft gun and a torpedo.

Gun linked to Paris attacks traced back to Florida arms dealer implicated in Iran-Contra scandal

A gun linked to last month’s Paris mass shootings has been traced back to a Florida arms dealer. The serial number for a M92 semi-automatic pistol linked to the deadly Nov. 13 terrorist attacks matched one for a weapon delivered by the Zastava arms factory in May 2013 to Century International Arms in Delray Beach, reported the Palm Beach Post. Michael Sucher, the owner of Century Arms, did not answer calls seeking comment Thursday and the doors to his shop were closed as TV news crews gathered outside.

Encryption vs. Surveillance in the New Civil Rights Movement

What if in 1960, instead of performing an act of civil disobedience at the Woolworth lunch counter, the Greensboro Four had been arrested for "attempted disorderly conduct" on their way downtown?

Even if the charge were bogus and had no chance in court, its effect on the movement would have been real. Instead of engaging in a high-profile confrontation with the state that highlighted the cruelty of the United States' racist laws, four young Black people would have been arrested on minor charges - hardly a noteworthy occurrence.

Law enforcement and the intelligence complex are paving the way to preempt activism in this way with their current talk of banning strong encryption while perpetuating an ever-growing system of mass data collection and surveillance.

ISIS Now Alleged to Have Chemical Weapons—But Who Did They Get Them From?

The US has previously made a number of claims that countries on its target list have BW or CW capabilities. Such claims, now discredited as false, were launched by President George W. Bush in order to gain support for the invasion of Iraq. Similar claims were made in August of 2013 against Syria’s President Assad, claims which were used by President Obama as justification to authorize a military strike against Syria. President Putin’s diplomatic solution to this crisis—bringing Syria in to join the international treaty organization, the Chemical Weapons Convention—derailed this stated intent by Obama to make war on Syria and effectively stalled the US’s intended invasion of Syria.

UK citizens may soon need licenses to photograph some stuff they already own

Changes to UK copyright law will soon mean that you may need to take out a licence to photograph classic designer objects even if you own them. That's the result of the Enterprise and Regulatory Reform Act 2013, which extends the copyright of artistic objects like designer chairs from 25 years after they were first marketed to 70 years after the creator's death. In most cases, that will be well over a hundred years after the object was designed. During that period, taking a photo of the item will often require a licence from the copyright owner regardless of who owns the particular object in question.

Ted Cruz using firm that harvested data on millions of unwitting Facebook users

Ted Cruz’s presidential campaign is using psychological data based on research spanning tens of millions of Facebook users, harvested largely without their permission, to boost his surging White House run and gain an edge over Donald Trump and other Republican rivals, the Guardian can reveal.

A little-known data company, now embedded within Cruz’s campaign and indirectly financed by his primary billionaire benefactor, paid researchers at Cambridge University to gather detailed psychological profiles about the US electorate using a massive pool of mainly unwitting US Facebook users built with an online survey.

As part of an aggressive new voter-targeting operation, Cambridge Analytica – financially supported by reclusive hedge fund magnate and leading Republican donor Robert Mercer – is now using so-called “psychographic profiles” of US citizens in order to help win Cruz votes, despite earlier concerns and red flags from potential survey-takers.

He then walks behind the patrol car and is obscured for a brief moment before he walks toward the deputies again and put his hands up. There does not appear to be a knife in his hand.

A second later two shots are fired and Flores falls to the ground.

'Oh f*** they shot him?' the girl exclaims. 'Why did they shoot him?'

Bexar County District Attorney Nico LaHood said he believed there would have been a grand jury indictment if only the second video had been seen.

Adding WRH to a local hosts file.

This is useful to do if the Domain Name Service is hacked or simply unavailable. IF YOU ARE NOT EXPERIENCED WITH SYSTEM-LEVEL CHANGES, PLEASE CONSULT AN EXPERT SO THAT YOU DO NOT DAMAGE YOUR OPERATING SYSTEM.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There have been recent attacks, possibly tests, on taking down the domain name servers that resolve the names of websites, such as whatreallyhappened.com with the numeric IP that actually directs to the web server, in this case 173.236.29.251. Should the domain name servers be "interfered with" to keep the truth about false-flags from being available to the public, such as the mutation of three tall white athletic shooters into two conveniently dead brown-skinned Pakistanis, you can still reach whatreallyhappened.com. DO NOT FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING! If you do not know what you are doing, you can see my web page by simply typing 173.236.29.251 instead of whatreallyhappened.com in the browser's URL bar, then create a bookmark.

I would suggest getting the IPs for all your favorite independent media websites and making a list, however these two methods for accessing a page by IP only work with dedicated servers, meaning the server delivers just one website. For servers running multiple sites this will not work, as shared servers require both the IP and name and as of now I don't know how to construct a browser URL correctly using the IP to access a virtual host.

Donald Trump is still far ahead of his rivals to win the Republican presidential nomination, according to the first opinion poll held after his comments calling for Muslims to be denied entry to the US.

The Reuters/Ipsos survey released Friday shows that 35 percent of Republican voters support the businessman, putting him far ahead of closest rival Ben Carson, who has the backing of just 12% of voters.

Couple takes pics of Star Wars figure they bought, gets DMCA notice from Lucasfilm

For the last decade, Marjorie Carvalho and her husband have produced Star Wars Action News, a podcast dedicated to Star Wars collectibles of all sorts. Predictably, they've had a lot to talk about, as waves of action figures and other collectibles have been launched in the run-up to the much-anticipated release of Star Wars: Episode VII—The Force Awakens next week.

On Tuesday, a SW Action News staffer saw something he shouldn't have—and bought it. A 3 3/4" action figure of "Rey," a female character from The Force Awakens, was on display in a Walmart in Iowa, apparently earlier than it should have been. The staff member bought it for $6.94 plus tax, no questions asked. The following day, he posted pictures of the Rey figure on SW Action News' Facebook page.

"Have we known this figure was coming?" the staffer, named Justin, asked in the post. "I just found her at Walmart—no new other figures."

A short time later, Carvalho got a surprising message.

Webmaster's Commentary:

ACLU Board Member Resigns After Urging People To Kill Supporters Of Trump

A board member for the American Civil Liberties Union of Colorado has resigned after urging people to kill supporters of presidential candidate Donald Trump.

Loring Wirbel’s Facebook post was captured by The Daily Caller – a right-leaning online newspaper.

The post states, “The thing is, we have to really reach out to those who might consider voting for Trump and say, ‘This is Goebbels. This is the final solution. If you are voting for him I will have to shoot you before Election Day.’ They’re not going to listen to reason, so when justice is gone, there’s always force…”

“It’s almost like, you will think the way we think, you will do what we want you to do, or we eliminate you?” says Steve House, chair of the Colorado Republican Party.

Sharp increase in radiation… at Fukushima” — Levels spike 400,000% under plant — Almost 1,000,000,000 becquerels per cubic meter — TV: Officials investigating cause

Radiation spikes in Fukushima underground ducts — The operator of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant says levels of radioactivity in underground tunnels have sharply risen. Tokyo Electric Power Company has detected 482,000 becquerels per liter of radioactive cesium in water samples taken from the tunnels on December 3rd. That’s 4000 times higher than data taken in December last year. The samples also contained 500,000 becquerels of a beta-ray-emitting substance, up 4,100 times from the same period… They plan to investigate what caused the spike in radiation.

In reporting on many major mass murder and terrorist events in the US and Europe in the last 15 years, including the recent Paris massacre and killings in San Bernardino, CA, respected media sources have revealed that by "coincidence" a drill was being held the same day and in the same city of the event. Not only that, the drills were practicing for what actually happened.

As a result of these multiple, amazing coincidences, those involved in these drills were then able to immediately go from the practice drill to secure and control the scene of the actual event.

The City Behind the Fence The US Government’s Top Secret Town (72 Pics)

In 1942, as part of the Manhattan Project, the U.S. government created a top ‘Secret Town’ aka ”The Atomic City’ now called Oak Ridge, Tennessee. The government bought up about 68,000 acres of land and about 1,000 Tennessee families were given two weeks or less to vacate. All the while, other secret towns were created elsewhere in the US as part of the race to create an atomic weapon. These photos are a flashback into World War II and a treasure trove of Oak Ridge period history. Through these pictures we can peer into the past, previously shrouded in secrecy, into the atomic city where the Little Boy bomb was created before the Enola Gay dropped it on Hiroshima. It’s a story that involves Soviet atomic spies, espionage, compartmentalization to guard secrets, and government billboards encouraging secrecy among Oak Ridge workers.

Fear, Anger and Hatred: The Rise of Germany's New Right

For years, a sense of disillusionment has been growing on the right. Now, the refugee crisis has magnified that frustration. Increasingly, people from the very center of society are identifying with the movement -- even as political debate coarsens and violence increases.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The globalists all thought they would pour the populations of nations into other nations and we would all obediently hug each other and sing "Kumbaya" as the borders dropped. But the reality is that human nature is human nature (despite what Margaret Mead sold the liberals) and the illegal immigration and refugee crisis has triggered a surge of nationalistic ferver across the globe!

US Navy’s newest ship breaks down 20 days after commissioning, towed to emergency repair

The US Navy’s brand new littoral combat ship, the Milwaukee, broke down on Friday and had to be towed for emergency repair just three weeks after commissioning. The warship’s troubles came after several days of propulsion system problems.

The USS Milwaukee was traveling from Halifax, Canada to Mayport, Florida, on its way to its homeport in San Diego when it suffered an engineering failure, the Navy Times reported.

The lock’s destruction leaves some 300 IS fighters trapped in the center of the city, he added.

VA hospital refuses to accept 'Merry Christmas' cards

On Monday morning the boys and girls were planning on hand delivering the cards to the wounded veterans. Chapman called the hospital to make final arrangements and that’s when she learned there was a problem.

"I told him my students made cards, we'd like to bring them down for the veterans," Chapman told the television station. "And he said, 'That's great. We're thrilled to have them, except the only thing is, we can't accept anything that says ‘Merry Christmas' or ‘God bless you' or any scriptural references because of all the red tape.'"

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The VA can't actually provide decent medical care for our veterans, but by golly they will enforce the "Scrooge" rule!

Why is a Hate Campaign being Waged against Muslims?

Why is a hate campaign being waged against Muslims?

Why are Muslims increasingly categorized as terrorists?

Why is this hate campaign part of the US presidential election campaign?

Why is Donald Trump calling for police state measures directed against American Muslims?
The answer to all these questions is both simple and complex.

It just so happens that more than 60% of the World’s reserves of crude oil lie in Muslim lands.

Muslims are the inhabitants of the countries which possess the oil. And America’s imperial agenda consists in acquiring ownership and control over the World’s oil reserves.

If these lands had been inhabited by Buddhists, Western politicians –with the support of the mainstream media– would be demonizing the Buddhists.

Italy says no to Obama's waitress Merkel

We have to consider that Italy did not block the sanctions, but just the automatic renovation of them. It means that our government is ready to talk about it and not to do it in an automatic way. Well, what does it mean? As for me, I'm happy about it, but I think that our government just wanted to demonstrate a specific Italian position inside the EU. Nothing more. There are a lot of countries, who are against this kind of sanctions, this is true. But, sadly, this opposition does not belong to our PM and his party.

PREHISTORIC: Huge Geometric Shapes Discovered in Middle East Pre-Date Nazca Lines

Huge geometric patterns first discovered in Jordan’s Azraq Oasis by pilots in World War I have just been dated, and the findings are leaving the realms of mainstream history.

Two of the wheel like shapes were found to have been built around 8,500BC, making them far older than the world famous Nazca Lines in Peru that only date back to between 200BC-500AD.

The spokes on the wheels are oriented in a southeast-northwest pattern, which would align them with the sunrise during the winter solstice.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Then the story panders to the UFO crowd, but the first part is interesting! I looked at these in Google Earth and the ideas that they align with the solstice like Stonehenge is not constant. To me these look like foundations of large community buildings added to as the community grew.

For the second time in just over six months, the BBC has been forced to admit that its flagship news and current affairs program — Today — has misled its audiences over the situation in Israel and the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip.

In a broadcast in October, veteran presenter John Humphrys and Middle East correspondent Kevin Connolly implied in a two-way conversation that all of those killed in that month’s violence were Israeli.

In fact, at the date of broadcast, on 19 October, more than 40 of those killed were Palestinian and fewer than 10 Israeli.

Webmaster's Commentary:

10 Things More Likely to Kill You than Islamic Terror

By Carey Wedler

Guided by talking heads, American armchair warriors spout vitriol, increasingly calling to either treat Muslims like Jews in the Third Reich or simply bomb them into oblivion — and their cognitive dissonance is glaring. These contradictions are evident not least in the paralyzing fear so many ‘Mericans feel toward Muslims who courageously call for soldiers to do their bidding in the Middle East. Their crippling fear of Islamic terror, itself, is cloaked in contradiction.

According to an analysis by the New America Foundation, Islamic terror attacks in the United States have led to the deaths of 45 people since 9/11. While 45 deaths is 45 too many, the dizzying fear of Islamic extremism currently sweeping the nation is objectively overblown.

Considering Islamic terror killing an average of 3.2 Americans per year (45 deaths divided by 14 years) since late 2001, here are ten causes of death more worthy of their fear...

Philippines Supreme Court ban on GMOs a “major setback” for the GM industry

The Supreme Court of the Philippines has ordered a permanent ban on field trials of GM eggplant and a temporary halt on approving applications for the “contained use, import, commercialisation and propagation” of GM crops, including the import of GM products.

The court ruled in favour of Greenpeace Southeast Asia, as well as several Filipino activists, academics and politicians, in a major victory for Filipino farmers and activists around the world.

“This decision builds on a wave of countries in Europe rejecting GE crops, and is a major setback for the GE industry,” said Virginia Benosa-Llorin, Ecological Agriculture Campaigner for Greenpeace Philippines. “The Philippines has been used as a model for GE regulatory policy around the world, but now we are finally making progress to give people a right to choose the food they want to eat and the type of agriculture they want to encourage.”

When hundreds of thousands of Californians expressed disdain over Nestlé Corporation’s water extraction from the San Bernardino National Forest during California’s worst drought in history, CEO of Nestle Waters North America Tim Brown seemed unphased.

The US Forest Service was allowing Nestlé to extract water and sell it back to Californians even though the company’s permit to do so had been expired in 1988. Though Nestlé ‘s permit was waiting in a pile of other permit applications, activists sued the National Forest Service when news of Nestlé’s extreme level of greed first came to light. They were also incensed because Nestlé has a long history of tapping public water supplies and then selling the water back to the public at an exorbitant cost.

It’s official: The Bush tax plan loses trillions and worsens inequality

First, the Bush plan lowers tax rates on both individuals and businesses, on both earnings and investment income. It repeals the estate tax, and shifts to a territorial system for multi-national corporations (meaning they don’t have to pay U.S. taxes on foreign earnings…not that they do much of that anyway). On the other hand, the plan eliminates the business interest deduction (on debt-financed spending/investment) and limits the “step-up basis” for capital gains passed on to heirs at $5.4 million this year (that’s the current estate tax threshold, indexed to the CPI; amounts above that level would be subject to taxation). Bush also proposes to significantly increase the EITC for childless adults.

The accused is usually not able to obtain the counsel of an lawyer or confront witnesses for the prosecution, and the proceedings are characterised by a perceived miscarriage of justice to the benefit of the ruling powers of the society. This is the stuff of cold war Russia and Nazi Germany – right? Think again.
