THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

"The NSS [National Security State] represents and serves the interests of a tiny elite. Its economic policies of "trickling-up", enforced by the machine gun, are rationalized on the ground that growth in the long run will trickle down to the lower orders. This is a self-serving ideology designed mainly to allow the western public to think well of themselves and their own country." -- Edward S. Herman, economist, author, and US media and foreign policy critic

CIA DIRECTOR: WAR ON TERROR WILL NEVER END

“The war is not meant to be won, it is meant to be continuous. Hierarchical society is only possible on the basis of poverty and ignorance. This new version is the past and no different past can ever have existed. 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 its own subjects and its object is not the victory over either Eurasia or East Asia, but to keep the very structure of society intact”

The Justice Department finally gave up its search and said it was all a mistake— that there was never any credible evidence of a John Doe #2 being involved.

Ted Cruz Tells Iowa Group That Gays Are Waging ‘Jihad’ Against Christians

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) accused gay Americans of "waging “jihad” against Christians by opposing anti-LGBT religious freedom laws.

The Republican presidential candidate made the remarks Thursday at an Iowa homeschool forum hosted by conservative radio broadcaster Steve Deace, a highly influential figure in the state’s GOP primaries who regularly complains about the “rainbow jihad.”

“You look at the jihad that is being waged right now in Indiana and Arkansas, going after people of faith who respect the biblical teaching that marriage is the union of one man and one woman,” Cruz said.

Israeli Paper: Israel Needs To Find the Right Time To Stop Iran’s Nuclear Program

“Israel is on its own on Iran and has to find the right time to stop its nuclear program kinetically,” Efraim Inbar, director of the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies at Bar-Ilan University, told The Jerusalem Post in an interview on Sunday.

“The issue is political will,” said Inbar, arguing that we got to this point “because the US administration does not have the will to act against Iranian nuclear aspirations.”

“US-Israel relations are on a collision course because of [President Barack] Obama’s policy on Iran and during this difficult period Israel needs to minimize the damage to the pillars of US-Israel relations,” he said.

However, he says, “We cannot accept the American policy on Iran and sometimes small states have to oppose even superpowers’ policies.”

“Bundy Ranch” type standoff brewing in Southern Oregon between miners and BLM

The area in question has produced in excess of 10 million ounces of gold since its conception, and geologists estimate that only 10% of the gold in the ground has been removed, which makes this area highly sought after by any standard. It is said that children find gold with their hands in the creeks to this day.

BLM has made several attempts to disband the operation through violations that claim improper paperwork filing, ruling changes over time, and other unsubstantiated claims. The miners of this district have spend tens of thousands of dollars to date to fighting the BLM in the courts and other avenues. The district has made requests to produce the official rulings that show they are in violation which have gone unanswered. They simple reason given by the BLM is that “they say so”.

Egypt: Life sentence for those digging or using smuggling tunnels to Gaza

Cairo - People who dig and use cross-border tunnels in Egypt could face a maximum penalty of life in jail, state news agency MENA said on Sunday, citing amendments to the penal code targeting activity in the frontier area near the Gaza Strip.

Egypt declared a state of emergency in the border area last year after at least 33 security personnel were killed in attacks in the Sinai Peninsula, a remote but strategic region bordering Israel, Gaza and the Suez Canal. There were several militant attacks in the Sinai on Sunday.

The amendments to the penal code were passed by presidential decree, MENA said.

BREAKING: OREGON GOLD MINING STAND OFF WITH BLM….NEXT BUNDY RANCH

BLM recently (3/18/15) issued two Stop Orders on a mine, citing authority under their 3809 regulations, despite the fact that this is one of the oldest active claims in the country. The location date of this mine is so old that one of the location notices (the legal title to the mine) was actually first recorded in the original Galice Mining District Recorder’s book in 1876 and then later transcribed into the Josephine County Clerk’s records once the county assumed recording duties. Under the 1955 Surface Resources Act, claims of this age have exclusive surface rights unless the Department of Interior utilized a mechanism outlined in that Act to severe those surface rights. Demands to BLM to produce evidence of their surface authority in accordance to the 1955 Act have thus far garnered only “because we say so” answers and numerous stonewalling tactics. The Stop Orders came after several months of back and forth maneuvering from both sides, and are clearly retaliatory in nature.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would remind everyone that the Enclave Clause in the Constitution forbids the US Government from owning/controlling any lands other than those underneath Federal Buildings, military bases, or Federal Infrastructure such as harbors and airports. But when Nixon ended gold convertibility and doubts began to surface that the US actually had all of the gold it was pledging as collateral on government borrowing, Nixon created the EPA to bypass the Enclave Clause and start grabbing public lands away from the people and use them as collateral for borrowing, now amounting to almost 1/4 of the entire nation. Despite references to China in the original story, I think the US Government is starting to commandeer private gold resources to replace the missing gold at the New York Federal Reserve.

Jeb Bush: Obama meets Castro, but not Netanyahu?

Former Florida governor and expected Republican presidential primary candidate Jeb Bush criticized US President Barack Obama for holding talks with Cuban leader Raul Castro while refusing to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during the latter’s last trip to Washington.

“Obama meets with Castro but refused to meet w/ Netanyahu,” Bush tweeted Sunday. “Why legitimize a cruel dictator of a repressive regime?”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Well, Jeb, since you obviously have not been paying attention, Castro didn't try to upstage Obama with a grandstanding speech before Congress. Castro hasn't had his hand out every year for billions of taxpayer dollars while building a nuclear arsenal that makes all that financial aid illegal under US law, and wheras Israel has started war after war after war, creating a mess in the Middle East that Israel expects the US to clean up, Castro has been pretty much minding his own business. And if you don't understand that difference, you are far too stupid to be President!

The ISIL terrorist group has threatened to “burn the United States again" by conducting terrorist attacks against the country similar to the September, 11, 2001 attacks in New York City and the Washington, DC.

The Takfiri terrorist organization released a propaganda video on Saturday via the Internet titled “We Will Burn America”, warning that Americans are not safe anywhere in the world.

“America thinks it’s safe because of the geographical location,” a voice-over in the video says. “But the dream of Americans to have safety became a mirage.”

"Today there is no safety for any American on the globe," the voice adds, while showing footage of planes crashing into the World Trade Center in New York City as well as acts of savagery by the group in Iraq and Syria.

Alexandr Dugin - The Fourth Political Theory & Blind Western Liberalism

Aleksandr Dugin is one of the best-known writers and political commentators in post-Soviet Russia. In addition to the many books he has authored on political, philosophical and spiritual topics, he currently serves on the staff of Moscow State University, and is the intellectual leader of the Eurasia Movement. For more than a decade, he has also been an advisor to Vladimir Putin and others in the Kremlin on geopolitical matters, being a vocal advocate of a return of Russian power to the global stage, to act as a counterweight to American domination. Dugin joins us to speak about the subject of his book, The Fourth Political Theory. He begins with an overview of this political vision, one that is a fundamental criticism of liberalism in all forms, but does not fall into communism, nationalism or fascism.

5 Insane Realities At My Fundamentalist Christian College

"I received a call slip in my mailbox ordering me to the dean's office," she says. "I remember that it was really weird, because it came on a Sunday." When she got there, she found a waiting room full of other fallen women. "When I was called into the office," she says, "the dean and one of her assistants were waiting. 'How are you?' they asked. 'How are you feeling?'" She told them she felt fine, and they cut right to the chase. "We're concerned about your health. We're concerned you might be pregnant."

That seemed unlikely to Lilith, a currently menstruating virgin. "They told me 'People said you've been feeling sick and vomiting in trash cans,'" which was only slightly less confusing, because she had never been that sick the whole time she had been at school. When she explained all of these things, they asked "Would you be OK with taking a pregnancy test to prove your innocence?" That's verbatim what they said, as if pregnancy was a crime.

German anti-Israeli writer, Günter Grass, dies at 87

Germany’s respected author and noble winning novelist, Günter Grass, known for his sharp criticism of Israel and those supporting the Tel Aviv regime, has died at the age of 87.

Germany’s Steidl publishing house announced Monday that Grass died at a hospital in the northern city of Lübeck.

Best known for his 1959 novel The Tin Drum, the German author won many international awards, with the most notable of them the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1999.

Many still continue to relish the novels, poems and stories written by Grass, especially those created in his 80s, but the mustached literary icon took to the headlines by lashing out at Israel over the regime’s continuous spread of hatred and fear in the Middle East and the world.

In his famous poem entitled “What Must Be Said” ("Was gesagt werden muss"), which was published in several prestigious European newspapers in 2012, Grass called the Tel Aviv regime the greatest threat to the peace in the world.

He went on to state that the government had decided to work hand in glove with the multinational GM seed industry that stood to gain immensely from the open field trails. Since then, the Modi-led administration has continued the policy to drive GMOs into India.

Martin Armstrong - Big Losses Coming in the Bond Market

Renowned financial analyst Martin Armstrong says you can forget about the U.S. dollar crashing in value. Armstrong contends, “No, that’s absurd. The euro is in terrible shape. The yen is in terrible shape, and honestly, you can’t park money in yuan or Russian rubles, yet. I mean, let’s be realistic here, but eventually--yes.”

Armstrong says the bond market is a different story as the Fed is going to be forced to raise rates. He contends just a few percentage points in rising rates are going to cause big losses and big changes. Armstrong predicts, “People will be losing huge money. We are looking at a few percentage points, and you are going to blow the national debts of all these countries way out of whack, and that’s what’s going to force political change.”

Emails reveal US officials undermining Blackwater case

The FBI agents have found out that senior officials in the US Justice Department intentionally attempted to undermine the case of Blackwater security guards’ fatal shooting of Iraqi civilians in 2007, internal emails revealed.

The FBI has planned to charge the American contractors with crimes, including weapons charges, manslaughter and attempted manslaughter that could send them to prison for the rest of their lives.

Several emails, obtained by the New York Times, however, revealed that the department’s senior officials were against the move and sought to drop some of the charges in an effort to lighten the sentences.

In September 2007, Blackwater security guards opened fire on unarmed Iraqi people near a bustling traffic circle with machine guns and grenade into Baghdad’s crowded Nisour Square, killing at least 17 people and wounding several others.

"The two countries’ relationship goes back to the time when Bashar al-Assad’s father was in power. Therefore the Russians do have a knowledge of the system and the way they think," he added.
However, Russia is only a small part of the wider solution he is seeking, the diplomat noted. In the current situation de Mistura said he believes that "anything" capable of breaking the stalemate in Syria should be tried, "even if imperfect or partial."
