"In the beginning the church was a fellowship of men and women centering on the living Christ. Then the church moved to Greece where it became a philosophy. Then it moved to Rome where it became an institution. Next, it moved to Europe , where it became a culture. And, finally, it moved to America where it became an enterprise." -- Richard Halverson, former chaplain of the United States Senate

Sherry Leedy exhibit captures eerie, abandoned New York psychiatric hospital

Avery Danziger didn’t just create art, he introduced a mystery.

On one of the photographer’s many excursions to the abandoned Harlem Valley/Wingdale State Hospital in New York, he spent the night shooting the facility’s exterior. It wasn’t until he reviewed the images in his Connecticut studio that he noticed an apparition in the sky. A giant question mark.

“I, nor anyone else who has looked at this picture, have any idea what this is,” Danziger says. “There is the distinct possibility that this is a very unique and possibly exclusive image of something very extraordinary.”

Police Killings At An All-Time High

A major investigative report by the Washington Post tells a chilling story: police killings nationwide are on a pace to eclipse 1,000 by year's end. That's more than double the national average in recent years. Even more disturbing is the fact that police shootings are largely underreported. Mind you, these statistics do not include police-inflicted deaths by means other than police bullets, such as stun guns and people in police custody.

The report states, "'These shootings are grossly under­reported,' said Jim Bueermann, a former police chief and president of the Washington-based Police Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving law enforcement. 'We are never going to reduce the number of police shootings if we don't begin to accurately track this information.'"

"And in a high-rise apartment in Birmingham, Ala., police shot an elderly man after his son asked them to make sure he was okay. Douglas Harris, 77, answered the door with a gun."

2015 Dietary Guidelines Continue Failed Low-Fat Advice

Despite a growing body of evidence that low-fat diets are harmful to health, the 2015 Dietary Guidelines for American Committee (DGAC) continues to recommend failed low-fat advice in it’s latest Advisory Report and request for public comment [http://www.health.gov/dietaryguidelines/2015-scientific-report/].

The Weston A. Price Foundation, a nutrition education foundation, recently filed comments that detail serious inconsistencies and bias in the Report. For example, the Committee recommends avoidance of red meat, but notes serious nation-wide deficiencies in protein, iron and zinc, nutrients best supplied by red meat. In addition, the Report continues warnings against animal fats like butter and lard, while urging increased consumption of omega-6 vegetable oils. Animal fats provide vitamins A and D, nutrients also lacking in the American diet, while the omega-6 vegetable oils are linked to cancer and heart disease.

Don't be fooled - worst aspects of the Patriot Act remain

The morning after final passage of the USA Freedom Act, while some foes of mass surveillance were celebrating, Thomas Drake sounded decidedly glum. The new law, he told me, is “a new spy program.” It restarts some of the worst aspects of the Patriot Act and further codifies systematic violations of Fourth Amendment rights.

Did you know that one of Pope Francis' 'closest adviser' and 'right hand' has been smeared by the ADL & Alan Dershowitz as a 'anti-semitic' conspiracy theorist & "an out and out Jew-hater"

His Eminence Oscar Andrés Cardinal Rodríguez Maradiaga of Honduras is often touted as one of Pope's Francis' closest advisers. You hardly hear a peep about him nowadays, but when he was considered to be a potential Papal successor to Pope Benedict XVI two years ago, the gloves came off. Let's take a closer look at this very influential cleric. Also, this is good opportunity to vindicate all of us who are often falsely called 'anti-Semitic.' The Vatican condemns anti-Semitism, yet this case proves that they themselves have been accused of it and have refuted - or in this case seemingly ignored- the hysterical charge.

TTIP will legalize cancer-causing chemicals banned by EU, trade union warns

Britain could be flooded with harmful chemicals currently banned in the European Union if the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) deal is signed next week, a trade union has warned.

The GMB said chemicals that can cause cancerous tumors, birth defects and development disorders will be allowed in the EU after the controversial trade agreement is signed.

The union’s top health and safety officer expressed concern that TTIP would allow a “downward harmonization of standards” for chemicals currently banned in the EU.

In separate comments, GMB called for the UK to ensure the National Health Service (NHS) is protected from private companies if the trade deal goes ahead.

Despite increasing scrutiny of a strategy that "tests the legal definition of [a] candidate," the nightly news programs have devoted zero coverage to the matter since The Associated Press (AP) first reported on it in April.

IMF Panics - Slashes US Growth Forecasts, Demands Fed Stay On Hold For Another Year

Anxiety over financial stability and shadow banking risks appear to have force Christine Lagarde and her fellow extrapolators to hit the panic button:

*IMF CUTS U.S. 2015 GROWTH FORECAST TO 2.5% FROM 3.1%
*FED SHOULD WAIT FOR TANGIBLE SIGNS OF WAGE, PRICE GAINS: IMF
*DOLLAR `MODERATELY OVERVALUED,' CURBING U.S. GROWTH, JOBS: IMF
*IMF URGES FED TO DELAY FIRST RATE INCREASE UNTIL 1H 2016

Adding that they viewed the Dollar as "moderately overvalued" and any more appreciation would be "harmful," it seems global disinflationary pressures have left the IMF no choice but to say publicly what everyone has uttered under their breath.

Obama admits that climate change will be in Obamatrade

In a speech on the Senate floor on May 22, Democratic senator Ron Wyden of Oregon ridiculed those who thought climate change regulation would be part of Obamatrade:

We’ve heard suggested, for example, that it’s a backdoor route to immigration reform or action on climate change…. My sense is that the rate these hypotheticals are going, you’re bound to hear that a future president working on a trade deal might have second thoughts about the Louisiana purchase.

But in an interview on NPR’s Marketplace yesterday (June 3), President Obama said that enforcing climate change regulations will indeed be part of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the Obamatrade pact that he is currently negotiating with Malaysia and 10 other countries. He said:

OSCE Reports Heavy Weapon Movement in Southeastern Ukraine Amid Ceasefire

The Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) has observed the movement of heavy weapons in southeastern Ukraine, a volatile region which has seen sporadic fighting between independence supporters and Kiev forces despite a ceasefire currently being in force.

"At 15:00hrs [on Wednesday] the SMM received a letter from the Ukrainian Ministry of Defence, saying Ukrainian Armed Forces heavy weapons would be placed on the contact line in order to deal with the ‘real threat’ posed by the fighting in [the government-controlled town of] Marinka, which they said had started at 06:00hrs that morning," OSCE observers said in a Thursday spot report.

Gen. Allen: ISIS War to Last ‘A Generation or More’

Out of and quickly back into Iraq, the Pentagon and its officials have talked about the new ISIS war with barely restrained glee as another chance to keep pushing Congress for bigger budgets, and for “emergency” war funding every single year.

Retired Marine Gen. John Allen, who has become President Obama’s special ambassador for the war, going around the world selling it to potential allies, today predicted the conflict would be much longer than anyone imagines, saying it “will likely take a generation or more.”

“Our partners from 12 countries are showing interest in its work, apart from the current members of the organization,” Putin added. SCO officials are now studying the possibility of accepting India and Pakistan into the bloc, he said.

Been awhile since MOSSAD Studios, HDQ in Herzliya, Israel has sent a video allegedly showing some USA/Saudi Arabia funded IS/ISIS/DAESH/pick your own Zionist mob, chopping the heads off of some poor victims.

Why is that? Is it because Israel, most likely the most paranoid nation on the planet, is now more scared of the most excellent Boycott, Divest and Sanction movement than the 'al CIA Duh' groups they've helped to create?

On Tuesday we brought you what will likely be the first of many calls for so-called “Helicopter money”, whose advocates suppose that the reason printing trillions in fiat currency has not yet brought about the desired effects in terms of stoking aggregate demand and promoting robust economic growth is that central banks have yet to go the nuclear route by simply mailing out free money to everyone.

Experts, led by those at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, noted the link was stronger in boys than in girls.

We are the propagandists: The real story about how The New York Times and the White House has turned truth in the Ukraine on its head

ver since the 2001 attacks on New York and Washington, reality itself has come to seem up for grabs. Karl Rove, a diabolically competent political infighter but of no discernible intellectual weight, may have been prescient when he told us to forget our pedestrian notions of reality—real live reality. Empires create their own, he said, and we’re an empire now.

The Ukraine crisis reminds us that the pathology is not limited to the peculiar dreamers who made policy during the Bush II administration, whose idea of reality was idealist beyond all logic. It is a late-imperial phenomenon that extends across the board. “Unprecedented” is considered a dangerous word in journalism, but it may describe the Obama administration’s furious efforts to manufacture a Ukraine narrative and our media’s incessant reproduction of all its fallacies.

Leaked TISA Documents Reveal Privacy Threat

Under the draft provisions of the latest trade deal to be leaked by Wikileaks, countries could be barred from trying to control where their citizens’ personal data is held or whether it’s accessible from outside the country.

Wikileaks has released 17 documents relating to the Trade in Services Agreement (TISA), currently under negotiation between the US, the European Union and 23 other nations. These negotiating texts are supposed to remain secret for five years after TISA is finalized and brought into force.

The deal, which has been under discussion behind closed doors since early 2013, is intended to remove barriers to trade in services. It’s a sort of companion piece to the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), which cover trade in goods – but potentially far bigger, with Wikileaks claiming that ‘services’ now account for nearly 80 per cent of the US and EU economies.

Fiat Chrysler submits documents for review

General Motors is under criminal investigation for not acting on a deadly ignition switch for more than a decade; Toyota was fined a record $1.2 billion for misleading customers about unintended acceleration complaints; and almost 34 million vehicles from 11 different automakers are being recalled for having air bags made by Japanese supplier Takata that can rupture and spew metal shards.

In the case of Fiat Chrysler, NHTSA is looking into how 20 recalls affecting 10 million vehicles were handled. Administrator Mark Rosekind has concerns about the speed and efficiency of warning consumers and fixing their vehicles. A public hearing into the matter is scheduled for July 2.

Cruz voted for Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) that would fast-track the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) Pacific Rim trade deal.

Sens. Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) —the other two Senate Republicans who have announced they’re running for president—refuse to answer, through spokespersons, whether they’ve gone to the secret room to read the TPP deal and whether they did before voting on TPA. Both Rubio and Graham voted for TPA, which would fast-track TPP—and at this point they’re both choosing through staff to give the public impression they didn’t read the secret text before they voted.

Pink Slips at Disney. But First, Training Foreign Replacements.

The employees who kept the data systems humming in the vast Walt Disney fantasy fief did not suspect trouble when they were suddenly summoned to meetings with their boss.

While families rode the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and searched for Nemo on clamobiles in the theme parks, these workers monitored computers in industrial buildings nearby, making sure millions of Walt Disney World ticket sales, store purchases and hotel reservations went through without a hitch. Some were performing so well that they thought they had been called in for bonuses.

Instead, about 250 Disney employees were told in late October that they would be laid off. Many of their jobs were transferred to immigrants on temporary visas for highly skilled technical workers, who were brought in by an outsourcing firm based in India. Over the next three months, some Disney employees were required to train their replacements to do the jobs they had lost.

Why Hillary Can't Run on Her State Department Record

Hillary Clinton's record as secretary of state became a hot-button issue this week after Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told Bloomberg Television that the Barack Obama administration's failed "reset" policy with Moscow was her "invention."

Here's why it matters: Her campaign chairman, John Podesta, gave an interview to Bloomberg View's Al Hunt in April in which he said holding up the “major accomplishments” from her State Department tenure would be a centerpiece of her campaign. Podesta may want to reconsider that plan. Running on Clinton's signature diplomatic initiatives is fraught with risks because, on closer inspection, most that he mentioned don’t hold up to scrutiny.

Israel tells France to fire 'anti-Semite' Orange CEO

An Israeli minister has asked the French government to dismiss the "anti-Semite" chief executive of the French telecommunications company Orange over its plans for severing business ties with Israeli mobile firm Partner.

Amid the outrage in Israel over the company’s plan, the regime’s Culture Minister Miri Regev on Thursday issued an appeal for the dismissal of Stephane Richard, the chief executive and chairman of Orange.

“The French government must show zero tolerance for anti-Semitism,” the Israeli minister said.

The latest comments are in line with Israel's policy of labeling its critics as "anti-Semite."

Meanwhile, the top official in Partner said Thursday that he is furious at remarks by Richard regarding the French company’s “intention” to withdraw its brand from the occupied territories.

Much of the scientific literature, perhaps half, may simply be untrue. Afflicted by studies with small sample sizes, tiny effects, invalid exploratory analyses, and flagrant conflicts of interest, together with an obsession for pursuing fashionable trends of dubious importance, science has taken a turn towards darkness. As one participant put it, “poor methods get results”. The Academy of Medical Sciences, Medical Research Council, and Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council have now put their reputational weight behind an investigation into these questionable research practices.

UK media suddenly covering all the vaccine injury stories the U.S. pharma-corrupted media pretends never happened

The censorship Berlin Wall on vaccine injuries is starting to crumble... in the UK, at least, where mainstream media outlets there are suddenly covering the thousands of young girls and boys who are routinely damaged by toxic vaccines.

The pharma-controlled, vaccine-worshipping U.S. mainstream media, of course, hilariously pretends vaccines cause no damage to anyone. That's part of the reason why no one believes the mainstream media anymore, which explains why mainstream media readership is plummeting while New Media readership is exploding.

EPA hid truth about glyphosate and cancer for decades to protect Monsanto's corporate profits

Did the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency run cover for biotech behemoth Monsanto for years to hide the cancer-causing properties of one of the agri-giant's most profitable chemicals? Absolutely, asserts Dr. Anthony Samsel, a research scientist and consultant who says he has EPA documents in his possession which allegedly show that Monsanto was aware of research tying glyphosate, the primary chemical in the company's popular Roundup herbicide, to cancer since the 1970s.

Swiss Supermarkets Stop Sales of Glyphosate over Health Concerns

Swiss supermarket giants Coop and Migros have announced that they will no longer sell products that contain glyphosate, following the World Health Organization’s report stating that glyphosate is a probable human carcinogen. They have also announced that they will be exploring non-toxic alternative weed-killers.

Yes, you’ll be able to do clean installs of the free Windows 10 upgrade

Windows 10 will be offered as a free upgrade to most Windows 7 and 8 users for one year after its July 29 launch. This has led, inevitably, to a number of questions about what happens to those who want or need to reinstall their operating system.

Microsoft's Gabe Aul has provided some much-needed clarification on this issue. On Twitter he confirmed that once upgraded, Windows 10 users will be able to perform clean installs of the operating system at any time, even after the one-year free period has ended. Users won't be required to install Windows 7 or 8 and then re-upgrade, and they won't need the Windows 7 or 8 product key, with Aul confirming that clean installs from an ISO will be possible.

Duggar family says real crime is release of molestation records

But the family seems to be going on the offensive after two weeks of what the parents called an "unprecedented attack" against them.

Star Wars fan? Lucas wrote this ‘false flag’-terrorism-war story about America devolving to dictatorship

*hyperlinks/video live at source*

“How do democracies get turned into dictatorships? The democracies aren’t overthrown; they’re given away... Star Wars was really about the Vietnam War.” - George Lucas, creator of Star Wars

“The (Star Wars) Empire is like America ten years from now.” - George Lucas, 1973

Adjusted for inflation, Star Wars is likely the most popular film series in history. Stories are popular because they communicate themes that resonate with the public. Creator George Lucas communicates that a powerful republic is overcome by false flag deception that devolves all into the most evil dictatorial empire possible.

“Dictatorship” literally means a government from what is dictated/said whenever government “leadership” says so. The US has lost almost all Constitutional rights to the dictates of “leaders” in government. In contrast, a constitutional republic is limited government acting within its constitution.

B.C. Legislature bomb plotters' entrapment claims hard to prove

Despite a B.C. Supreme Court jury finding that John Nuttall and Amanda Korody are guilty of plotting the attack, the two may never be sentenced. In that case, they would walk free.

An indefinite stay of proceedings hinges on the defence's ability to successfully argue that the undercover cops who befriended the couple entrapped them into planning and executing the foiled plot.

Whistleblower Tells Oversight Committee of Crimes Committed By Hillary and Huma Abedin

This could be the end of Hillary 2016. Two whistleblowers met behind closed doors with the Oversight Committee staffers and the lead general counsel for the committee. The revelations are nothing short of explosive. One of the whistleblowers (WB) is already well known, Richard Higbie, but the second one, who is still unnamed has evidence of possible crimes by Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton and a cover up of those crimes by former Acting Inspector General of the State Department, Harold Geisel, who had previously been accused of playing politics in his position as watchdog for the State Department.

Ted Butler: Stepping Up to the Plate

US Government data unquestionably prove speculators are setting the price of silver on the COMEX to the exclusion of actual silver producers and consumers and that is so far from the intent and spirit of US commodity law as to be inexplicable. There is no reason to expect silver industrial consumers and fabricators to complain about artificially depressed prices because they have benefitted from the existing price-setting regime. But, it’s about time that silver producers questioned the single most important factor to their financial health – the price of their principle product. For being first to step up to the plate, here’s a tip of the hat to Keith Neumeyer.

Has a new financial collapse started?

Is the financial collapse that so many are expecting in the second half of 2015 already starting? Many have believed that we would see bonds crash before the stock market crashes, and that is precisely what is happening right now. Since mid-April, the yield on 10 year German bonds has shot up from 0.05 percent to 0.89 percent. But much of that jump has come this week. Just a couple of days ago, the yield on 10 year German bonds was sitting at just 0.54 percent. And it isn’t just Germany – bond yields are going crazy all over Europe. So far, it is being estimated that global investors have lost more than half a trillion dollars, and there is much more room for these bonds to fall. In the end, the overall losses could be well into the trillions even before the stock market collapses.

Time to end Israel's impunity

Last summer, while visiting our family in Shuafat, a neighborhood in occupied East Jerusalem, my son Tariq was chased, zip-tied, and beaten unconscious by Israeli police officers as he watched a protest. The protest was in response to the kidnapping and killing of his 16-year-old friend and cousin, Muhammad Abu Khdeir, by Israeli settlers the day before.

As the policemen lifted my unconscious son's body away to prison, two officers continued to kick his limp body and face. In prison, he had to wait six hours before receiving medical attention. And we had to wait several months for him to be cleared of wrongdoing in the case. When I first saw Tariq after the beating, I did not recognize him; his face was badly bruised and his eyes were nearly swollen shut. I thought he was dead. I wanted to get closer to him, to see if he was breathing, to let him know I was there. But the hospital officials barred me from entering his room.

Marilyn Mosby Seeks Protective Order To Block Release Of Freddie Gray’s Autopsy

Ivan Bates, the attorney for Alicia White, the lone female officer charged in the case, told the Sun that Mosby’s motion indicates “there is something in that autopsy report that they are trying to hide.”

“Mrs. Mosby is the one who did an announcement discussing what she said the evidence was in a nationally televised speech, and now that it is time to turn over the evidence, to ask for a protective order is beyond disingenuous,” Bates told the Sun. “It’s as if she wants to do everything to make sure our clients do not get a fair trial.”

“Nobody would know anything but the state and the defense, so they would totally hide it from the public,” he added. “If your case is as good as you said it was, why don’t you just show the evidence?”

Adelson Tabloid Slams Obama for Listening to ‘Court Jews’ in Questioning Israel’s Credibility

President Barack Obama gave an interview on Israeli television on Tuesday in which he said that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s position on rejecting a Palestinian state as long as he is in power is damaging Israel’s credibility.

Netanyahu tried to retract his campaign pledge after he won the election on the basis of it, but that just made him look sleazy, and anyway he didn’t really take it back. Nobody thinks Israel will agree to a Palestinian state as long as Netanyahu has anything to say about it.

USA Freedom and Obama's Doublespeak

Almost everything the president says about the USA Freedom Act is false. He does not at all "welcome" the law's passage. If Obama had his way, Congress would have never even considered this law because the National Security Agency's illegal activities would still be secret.

The only reason any of this is happening is that Edward Snowden spilled the NSA beans. If the president truly welcomes surveillance reform, then he should thank Snowden instead of charging him with crimes against the state.

The president's claim to have himself called for reforms is laughable. His own Review Group on Intelligence and Communications Technologies, convened after the Snowden leaks, gave him 46 specific recommendations in its January 2014 report. To date, he has implemented exactly zero of them.

Congratulation Tony Blair

The Guardian reports this morning that Tony Blair is to take on a new role leading the European Council on Tolerance and Reconciliation.

This is no doubt great news. The 21st century’s greatest war criminal is called to lead the campaign against ‘extremism’ which he himself instigated. Truth be told, it only makes sense to appoint a mass murderer to such a delicate job because only a genocidal character could be intimately familiar with the nitty gritty of institutional hatred and intolerance.

IDF strikes Gaza after at least two rockets fired toward southern Israel

Israel Air Force jets struck Hamas targets in the Gaza Strip early Thursday morning, after at least two rockets were fired from the Strip at southern Israel on Wednesday evening. Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon vowed to "strike harder if we must," to stop sporadic rocket fire from resuming.

No casualties or injuries by the rocket fire were reported. Rocket sirens were sounded in several communities in southern Israel near the northern Gaza border. Two rockets exploded in an open area near the Gaza border, the Sdot Negev Regional Council reported, though the IDF said it is still searching for the rockets' landing sites.

After the rocket fire, Israel Air Force jets struck three "terror infrastructure" targets in the Gaza Strip, according to the Israel Defense Forces.

Israeli defense officials believe that the militants responsible for the rocket fire belong to a "rogue group."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In other words, this is the usual Israeli pattern. Use agents provocateurs to launch untraceable home made rockets into empty dirt lots in Israel to justify air strikes and naval bombardment of Gaza.

Back from the dead: US officials to ask secret court to revive NSA surveillance

The Obama administration intends to use part of a law banning the bulk collection of US phone records to temporarily restart the bulk collection of US phone records.

US officials confirmed to the Guardian that in the coming days they will ask a secret surveillance court to revive the program – deemed illegal by a federal appeals court – all in the name of “transitioning” the domestic surveillance effort to the telephone companies that generate the so-called “call detail records” the government seeks to access.

The unconventional and unexpected legal circumstance depends on a section of the USA Freedom Act, which Obama signed into law on Tuesday, that provides a six-month grace period to prepare the surveillance and legal bureaucracies for a world in which the National Security Agency is no longer the repository of bulk US phone metadata.

But Stephane Richard claims he can’t due to contractual obligations. This excuse does not pass the smell test.

“Believe me I would cancel the contract tomorrow if I could,” Richard said in Cairo on Wednesday.

His comments have also generated an immediate backlash from Israeli officials.

Sunbathing at the crime scene: the Israeli resort that covers up a massacre

For Palestinians, Tantura, the name of a coastal village south of Haifa that was once home to 1,700 inhabitants, has become a byword for the darkest episodes of the Nakba (Arabic for catastrophe), the ethnic cleansing of 1948.

For Israelis, the site is referred to by a different name — Dor, known as a popular beach resort belonging to two neighboring kibbutzim, Dor and Nahsholim, an hour’s drive north of Tel Aviv.

Fallacies in Modern Medicine: Statins and the Cholesterol-Heart Hypothesis

It is becoming increasingly clear that the cholesterol-heart hypothesis is a fallacy of modern medicine. In the future medical historians may liken the prescribing of statins to lower blood cholesterol with the old medical practice of bloodletting. Taking that vital substance out of the body is comparable to today’s practice of blocking production of cholesterol, an equally vital component, with drugs.

What happened to Red Cross donations for Haiti?

Following a harrowing earthquake that struck Haiti in 2010, the American Red Cross launched a project to raise funds and rebuild the area. Roughly $500 million was donated. The Red Cross claims to have provided homes for more than 130,000 people in Haiti, but according to a new report from ProPublica and NPR, as it stands today, only six homes have been built in the four years since those efforts began.

The organization won’t say where the rest of the money has gone. When they declined to show ProPublica’s Justin Elliot and NPR’s Laura Sullivan the grounds of one of their projects in Campache, the reporters visited the area on their own:

Scientists around the globe – including St Andrews in Scotland and the British Antarctic Survey – did their own individual research using the data, before making it available for other scientists and climate researchers to use via the new portal.
