Historical Amnesia And The Destruction Of The Senate Torture Report

When Winston Smith thinks he has finally made contact with the underground movement he has always hoped existed, in George Orwell’s 1984, he drinks a toast, not to the hoped-for future, but to the past, because “he who controls the past controls the future.”

With the “erasure of the past,” current events can look like anomalies and accidents when stripped of the historical context that belies the patterns that reveal the possibility of intent and guilt.

Hillary Clinton: Donald Trump not qualified to be president

Hillary Clinton labeled her Republican rival Donald Trump "divisive and dangerous" and "unmoored" today, saying his recent behavior shows he's not qualified to be president.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"My accomplishments as Secretary of State? Well, I'm glad you asked! My proudest accomplishment in which I take the most pride, mostly because of the opposition it faced early on, you know. the remnants of prior situations and mindsets that were too narrowly focused in a manner whereby they may have overlooked the bigger picture and we didn't do that and I'm proud of that. Very proud. I would say that's a major accomplishment." -- Hillary Clinton 11 March 2014

Hillary thinks she is more qualified to be President because she is the wife of a former President. But seriously, if you are sick, do you want the wife of the surgeon operating on you? When you travel, do you want the wife of the pilot flying that plane? I don't. I want someone who knows what they are doing.

Is Donald Trump an experienced politician? No. That's what people like about him. Trump knows how to create companies and jobs. He knows how to build things. That is a body of knowledge almost totally absent from the established political class of perpetual parasites whose only job experience is taking money from one group of people and giving it to someone else.

No Right to a Speedy Sentence

The constitutional right to a speedy trial doesn’t apply to the sentencing phase after a guilty verdict, the U.S. Supreme Court unanimously ruled Thursday.

The case, Betterman v. Montana, was brought by Brandon Betterman, who pled guilty to bail-jumping in April 2012 after failing to appear in court on domestic-assault charges.

After pleading guilty, Betterman waited 14 months in a county jail before receiving his sentence in June 2013. He then challenged the sentence under the Sixth Amendment, arguing his right to a speedy trial had been violated by the lengthy delay. Multiple state supreme courts and most of the federal appellate courts have held or assumed that the Sixth Amendment’s protections apply during the sentencing phase.

As Sanders Readies for California, Clinton Announces Primary Process 'Already Done'

Bernie Sanders has reiterated his promise to stay in the presidential race until the Democratic convention in July, and is throwing his weight behind a number of progressive initiatives in California as the state's primary approaches there on June 7.

As rival Hillary Clinton told CNN's Chris Cuomo on Thursday afternoon the nomination was "already" hers, Sanders refuses to discount California voters—more than 1.5 million of whom have registered to vote since January.

"I will be the nominee for my party, Chris. That is already done, in effect," Clinton said. "There is no way that I won't be."

Appeals Court Rules Against Father of Oscar Grant

By Derrick Broze

The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals of California has ruled that the father of Oscar Grant, a 22-year-old man shot and killed by Bay Area Rapid Transit police, cannot pursue monetary damages.

On New Year’s Day 2009, 22-year-old Oscar Grant was detained and handcuffed by Bay Area Rapid Transit police at the Fruitvale station in Oakland, California. Grant was lying facedown on the platform of the station when former BART police Officer Johannes Mehserle shot him in the back of the head. Mehserle claimed he thought he fired his Taser instead of his gun. He was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter and sentenced to two years in prison...

NEW EVIDENCE ABOUT THE DANGERS OF MONSANTO’S ROUNDUP

OHN SANDERS WORKED in the orange and grapefruit groves in Redlands, California, for more than 30 years. First as a ranch hand, then as a farm worker, he was responsible for keeping the weeds around the citrus trees in check. Roundup, the Monsanto weed killer, was his weapon of choice, and he sprayed it on the plants from a hand-held atomizer year-round.

Frank Tanner, who owned a landscaping business, is also a Californian and former Roundup user. Tanner relied on the herbicide starting in 1974, and between 2000 and 2006 sprayed between 50 and 70 gallons of it a year, sometimes from a backpack, other times from a 200-gallon drum that he rolled on a cart next to him.

In rural Maine, a life of solitude and larceny - Police say hermit stole to survive 27 years in woods

ROME, Maine — Christopher Knight told police he had lived undetected in the woods for 27 years, spoken to only one person in that time, and not made a single purchase since the mid-1980s. But Knight knew how to steal, authorities said, and how to stay hidden even though his tent lay within 600 yards of the nearest cabin. Such is the singular world of the man dubbed the North Pond Hermit by the long-spooked residents here, where Knight is believed to have committed more than 1,000 burglaries for food, fuel, tools, and clothing since he left a computer-technician job and retreated to the forest. Now, the 47-year-old is residing in the Kennebec County Correctional Facility in Augusta, facing burglary and theft charges, as banjo players rhapsodize about him and bewildered Mainers shake their heads at the thought of 27 winters in the open.

Glyphosate EU approval decision postponed as concerns refuse to go away

Commenting on the development, Green environment and food safety spokesperson Bart Staes stated:

"This latest postponement is a sign that the significant opposition to reapproving glyphosate is being taken seriously by key EU governments. It is clear that the EU Commission and the agro-chemical industry were hell-bent on bulldozing through the approval of glyphosate for unrestricted use for a long timeframe but thankfully this push has been headed off for now. We hope this postponement will convince more EU governments to join in opposing the approval of this controversial substance and, at the very least, to proactively propose comprehensive restrictions on its use.

"The Commission cannot keep coming back with proposals that do not address the concerns with glyphosate. Instead, it needs to finally recognise that there are major problems with glyphosate and legislate for this.

Vietnam says U.S.-based group, culprit behind social disturbance

Social order in Vietnam's capital Hanoi and southern Ho Chi Minh City have been recently disrupted due to mass gatherings held in the name of environment protection using the context of the unusual mass fish deaths in the country's central coastal region.

"The U.S.-based terrorist organization Viet Tan was the real culprit behind the social disturbances," according to Vietnam's state-run news agency VNA on Wednesday.

Viet Tan members inside and outside the country incited people, including juveniles and ex-convicts, to gather at public places. They even delivered money to participants, with the hidden intention of blowing up the protest into a riot, thus hindering the upcoming general elections, said VNA.

Ex-NTSB Investigator on MS804: ‘Commercial planes don’t make abrupt turns’

Greg Feith, a former investigator with the National Transportation Safety Board, says there does not appear there was another aircraft in the area to avoid when EgyptAir MS804 disappeared, making it harder to understand why the plane would take evasive action.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Air traffic radars do not track aircraft, they track aircraft transponders! A non-transpondered target would not show up on the ATC radar. So we cannot rule out that MS804 was taking evasive action from a real threat, such as a military missile.

It is a tragic reality that dozens of civilian aircraft have been accidentally shot down by the military over the years, including the Itavia DC-9 incident which also happened over the Mediterranean.

A former associate of Pentagon Michael Rubin: It is possible that the army overthrow Erdogan

AFTER 13 years of government Recep Erdogan and systematic marginalization of the army, its members were beginning to strengthen its influence in Turkey.

Turkish army and its generals gradually returning as the main players in Turkish politics. He described this influential American newspaper The Wall Street Journal .

Turkey's military, which has since 1960 spent four state coup, was sidelined after the coming to power of moderate Islamists, leader of the Party of justice and development, Recep Erdogan. However, after the war in Syria, where Turkey de facto directly involved, as well as the civil conflict in the southeast of the Kurdistan Workers' Party (CTR), Erdogan was forced to come to terms with the strengthening of the role of the army.

American Journal points out that the Turkish army turns into a central force for political decision-making in the field of national security, which certainly should be concerned about Erdogan.

House Votes Down Proposal To End 2001 War Authorization

There will be no end to the president’s endless war authority.

In a 138-285 vote, the House rejected an amendment Wednesday night that would have repealed the sprawling 2001 Authorization for Use of Military Force passed in the days after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

The amendment would have revoked the 2001 AUMF within 90 days of the president signing the National Defense Authorization Act, which passed Wednesday night, 277-147.

As amendment sponsor Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) noted on Wednesday, the Congressional Research Service says the broad war authorization has been used to justify military action in 14 countries a total of 37 times — 18 from President George W. Bush, and 19 from President Barack Obama.

“And this report only looks at unclassified incidents,” Lee said. “How many other times has it been used without the knowledge of Congress or the American people?”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Congratulations, House of Representatives, for completely shirking your duty to those people you allegedly represent!!

The Constitution of the United States states, very emphatically, that only Congress can declare war.

Article I, Section 8, Clause 11 of the United States Constitution, sometimes referred to as the War Powers Clause, vests in the Congress the power to declare war, in the following wording: [The Congress shall have Power...] To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water

By not repealing the AUMF, the House has given the current, and future Presidents the power, and blank check, to wage wars against any countries where they believe the leadership of those countries to be an existential threat to the US government.

These undeclared wars have no place in activities of an alleged a democratic republic, and should be soundly, and thoroughly debated, and declared, rather than just be covert military actions the justifications for which never truly see the light of day.

And, it must be remembered that George W.Bush's activation of the AUMF was based on false claims of Saddam's weapons and involvement with 9-11, rendering the AUMF legally null and void, and the war itself a war crime.

Shame on all of you for your cowardice!!

REFUGEES SENDING 'SUITCASES OF WELFARE CASH' HOME TO SOMALIA

Men and women pulling “suitcases full of cash” started showing up at Seattle’s Sea-Tac Airport last year holding tickets for international flights bound for Africa.

Transporting large amounts of cash overseas is perfectly legal. But it was who was carrying the money … and where it was going that caught the attention of law enforcement, according to a report by KING 5, the local NBC affiliate for western Washington.

Those hauling the cash-laden cases were Somali-Americans who’d come to this country as refugees. They routinely send money back to Somalia. And many of the greenbacks headed to the jihadist-infested East African country come from welfare checks the refugees receive from the U.S. government, compliments of American taxpayers.

Kindergartner Suspended for Bringing a Bubble “Gun” to School — Violated No “Weapon” Policy

By Claire Bernish

“They’re saying it was a fake weapon and that I need to come get her,” said the unidentified Colorado mother of a five-year-old girl who was suspended after bringing a clear, plastic, princess-themed bubble gun to school because she likes bubbles. “I appreciate that they’re trying to keep our kids safe, I really do. But there needs to be some common sense.”

A Brighton, Colorado, School District 27J spokesman refused interview requests, but told an ABC affiliate by email that the kindergartner’s suspension was “consistent with our district policy.”

That policy targets fake ‘guns’ which could be reasonably mistaken for actual weapons — but the district almost inarguably crossed the line into the absurd with a plastic, princess bubble gun...

Power Loves the Dark

In its report, released last May, the Task Force on 21st Century Policing emphasized the crucial role of technology in promoting better law enforcement, highlighting the use of police body cameras in creating greater openness. “Implementing new technologies,” it claimed, “can give police departments an opportunity to fully engage and educate communities in a dialogue about their expectations for transparency, accountability, and privacy.”

And while the task force’s report says all the right things, a little digging reveals that the feds not only aren’t putting the brakes on improper police use of technology, but are encouraging it — even subsidizing the misuse of the very technology the task force believes will keep cops honest. To put it bluntly, a techno-utopia isn’t remotely on the horizon, but its flipside may be.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Technology seems to be leading law enforcement down the dark road to nightmarish invasions of personal privacy we can barely begin to comprehend right now.

Ahead of its time: Doctor Who’s 56 inspiring female scientists

Thee issue of gender equity in science has received a lot of attention recently. Governments are throwing money at it, scientists are speaking up about it and news agencies are reporting on it.

Researchers interested in fictional scientists are also concerned about gender inequality in cinema and television, and its role-modelling impact on aspiring scientists. But things are changing there too.

Our research into scientists and gender in Doctor Who over the past 50 years shows there are many reasons to celebrate.

WHY GOOGLE WANTS TO SURGICALLY PLANT A CAMERA IN YOUR EYE

Nowadays we all know that Google has about as many scruples (or lack thereof) as any other major corporation. Their bottom line depends on targeted advertising, and that means that every product or service they provide is given to their customers with the sole intent of invading their privacy.

The patent is for an optical implant that would place a camera inside your eyeball.

And of course, the owner of one of these cameras would have to accept the fact that everything they see and do would be tracked by Google. They would be privy to your most private and intimate moments. In time, they would come to know you better than any other human being.

But as much as the wearer’s intentions are a concern, they’re not the only ones you’d have to worry about. All of those connection points and signals mean that your lens camera would be capable of broadcasting and recording everything. That information could, conceivably, be used much the same way your browsing data is.

The ink was barely dry on a proposal by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) to restore the rights of banking customers to take their grievances into a court of law instead of a system of forced arbitration, when House Republicans threw together a hearing yesterday to scaremonger over make-believe evils of the proposal. The hearing was convened by the Republican-controlled Financial Institutions and Consumer Credit Subcommittee of the House Financial Services Committee and not-so-subtly titled “Examining the CFPB’s Proposed Rulemaking on Arbitration: Is it in the Public Interest and for the Protection of Consumers?”

The FBI Wants to Keep the National Biometric Database a Secret

By Derrick Broze

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is attempting to suppress information about a massive database which contains fingerprints, palm prints, iris, voice, and face scans, as well as other biometric data, of millions of Americans.

In early May the U.S. Department of Justice released a proposal which would exempt the FBI’s biometric database from public disclosure. Specifically, the proposal would exempt the Next Generation Identification (NGI) System from provisions of the federal Privacy Act, which “requires federal agencies to share information about the records they collect with the individual subject of those records, allowing them to verify and correct them if needed.” The proposal is open for public comment until June 6, 2016...

"There are three kinds of lies," said Mark Twain. "Lies, damned lies, and statistics." Unfortunately for Puerto Rico, this is not an aphorism; it is an operating principle.

Separated by an ocean and a language from the mainland, Puerto Ricans have watched the US government lie brazenly and repeatedly -- to the American people and the world at large -- about its actions and interests in the Caribbean.

The latest walk down liar's lane is a cut to the minimum wage, as proposed by the US House of Representatives' Committee on Natural Resources.

Efforts to Lower the Minimum Wage

On April 12, 2016, the House Committee on Natural Resources released HR 4900: the Puerto Rico Oversight, Management, and Economic Stability Act, with the acronym of PROMESA. The bill creates a Financial Control Board, which will act as a collection agency for the hedge funds/vulture funds throughout the island.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is actually very simple; the US government wants to do to Puerto Rico...what it has done to Haiti.

As reported at thenation.com in January of last year:

he corrugated metal fences surrounding construction sites in downtown Port-au-Prince are covered with a simple message: “Haiti ap vanse,” or “Haiti is moving forward.” Where once many thousands of people made tattered tents and makeshift shelters their home, now massive concrete shells and cranes stand tall amidst the rubble. Returning to Haiti, along with much of the world’s major media, for the fifth anniversary of the earthquake that killed more than 200,000 and displaced 1.5 million, it’s impossible not to see some signs that Haiti is in fact “moving forward.” The large camps of internally displaced persons, the most visible sign of the quake’s lasting impact, have for the most part been cleared, though certainly some remain. But beneath the veneer of progress, a more disturbing reality is apparent. Eighteen kilometers north on the dusty hillsides overlooking the sea is Canaan, an informal city now home to hundreds of thousands of people and, according to the State Department, on its way to becoming the second-largest city in Haiti. “It’s a living hell,” says Alexis, one of the area’s residents, as we sit overlooking a new $18 million sports complex built by the Olympic Committee for Haitian national teams at the foot of the hills. “I’ll stay here because I can’t afford to go anywhere else,” she adds. Like many others here, Alexis received rental support from an NGO to move out of the camps in Haiti’s capital, but when it ran out, she was displaced all over again. While no longer facing the constant threat of eviction, Alexis faces a new set of problems: there are no government services in Canaan, water is scarce, employment even more so. Five years ago, it took just seconds for hundreds of thousands of homes to crumble and crack. More than a million Haitians took to the streets, sleeping under the stars wherever space allowed, taking comfort that the only thing that could still fall was the sky. Almost just as quickly, the global aid-industrial complex was set in motion; the first no-bid contracts for groups responding to the crisis were awarded just days after. In a few months, the international community would come together, pledging $10 billion in relief and promising that this time would be different. No more of the failed policies of the past, in which the flow of foreign aid undermined the Haitian government; this time Haiti would “build back better.” But after five years and billions of dollars, just 9,000 new homes have been built. And so, the big question five years later remains: “Where did the money go?” The funds pledged were enough to hand every single Haitian a check for $1,000. Yet compared to the lofty expectations, the internationally led reconstruction process has been a failure. To answer the question, you have to forget the notion that foreign aid is simply an altruistic endeavor to better the lives of those in need. The United States Agency for International Development (USAID), which has spent more than $1.5 billion in Haiti, explains its goal as “furthering America’s interests.” In a more candid assessment, contained in a document now over a decade old and no longer publicly available, USAID explained that “the principal beneficiary of America’s foreign assistance programs has always been the United States.” Evidence from Haiti backs this up. For every $1 that USAID has spent, less than one penny went directly to Haitian organizations, be it the Haitian government or in Haiti’s private sector. More than 50 cents went to Beltway firms—handling everything from housing construction, rubble removal, health services, security and more—located in DC, Maryland and Virginia. As a jobs creator back home, USAID’s Haiti reconstruction effort has been an astounding success. The single largest recipient of USAID funding in Haiti was a for-profit, DC-based firm, Chemonics International, through USAID’s Office of Transition Initiatives. In an earlier contract with Chemonics released through Freedom of Information Act requests, USAID clearly explained: “While humanitarian aid is distributed on the basis of need alone, transition assistance is allocated with an eye to advancing U.S. foreign policy objectives and priorities.” A relevant example of just that philosophy is that the vast majority of USAID-financed houses were built many hours north of Port-au-Prince, where the need is greatest, in Caracol, the site of a shiny, new industrial park, which received high-level support from Bill and Hillary Clinton. And while the plan had been to build 15,000 houses, only 900 currently have been built. At the same time, a reliance on foreign contractors and imported materials led costs to balloon from $55 million to over $90 million. In October 2014, barely a year after the first families moved in to homes in Caracol, USAID awarded $4.5 million to yet another American firm to oversee massive repairs needed to fix the faulty work of the first contractor. This is the damage caused by putting political priorities and American business interests over the needs of those on the ground. But Chemonics, whose contract with USAID explicitly states that decisions about what programs to fund “will be based upon US foreign policy interests in consultation” with the State Department, worked to further USAID’s objectives of “counter[ing] the destabilizing effects” and the “growing discontent” with the pace of reconstruction. It ran PR for the new industrial park, installing benches and flower planters in nearby areas to “project a positive image.” An audit later noted that the flowers soon died “from lack of care,” while the mayor decried the lack of community involvement. But business was good for Chemonics, whose CEO at the time received a $2.5 million bonus.

Just as with Puerto Rico, Haiti was about profits in the US, and not the betterment of the situation of the people in Haiti.

US Media As Conduits Of Propaganda

Nothing disturbs me more about the modern mainstream U.S. news media than its failure to test what the U.S. government says against what can be determined through serious and impartial investigation to be true. And this is not just some question of my professional vanity; it can be a matter of life or death.

TEXAS BULLION DEPOSITORY: GOLD BACKED BANK TO BE COMPLETED NEXT YEAR

Last year Texas Governor Gregg Abbott signed HB 483, allowing the creation of the Texas Gold Depository. “With the passage of this bill, the Texas Bullion Depository will become the first state-level facility of its kind in the nation, increasing the security and stability of our gold reserves and keeping taxpayer funds from leaving Texas to pay for fees to store gold in facilities outside our state,” he said last June.

This gold bank would allow Texas to recover the gold that it has stored in New York vaults, and give Texan citizens and institutions a chance to store their gold in the facility, and open checking and savings accounts that would be valued in gold rather than dollars. This even opens the possibility of making gold transactions electronically for the very first time.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It appears that Texas Governor Abbott knows what is coming, and is taking pragmatic steps to protect the people of Texas from it.

As the Syrian crisis drags on and hopes of a peaceful resolution or, at the very least, a return to relative normalcy in Libya seem very distant, Algeria should, by now, begin suspecting that it might soon find itself in the Anglo-American crosshairs. There is now rapidly growing evidence that Algeria is doing just that...

Trump's 'rape' attack on Bill Clinton: Republican says sex crime is among list of charges leveled against ex-president over conduct towards women

Donald Trump hit Bill Clinton with his hardest charge yet on Wednesday evening during a sit-down interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News.

Trump brought up a rape accusation against the former Democratic president when talking about Clinton's past behavior with women with the Fox News host.

The two were discussing a recent New York Times article that was supposed to expose Trump's own treatment of women and how several of the sources had come out and said the newspaper twisted their words.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Note how FOX News keeps repeating that the sex crimes are "allegations" even though Bill Clinton has publicly admitted to some of them as being true!

BEX ALERT - 99 Percent Chance 2016 Will Be the Hottest Year on Record

Odds are increasing that 2016 will be the hottest year on the books, as April continued a remarkable streak of record-warm months.

Last month was rated as the warmest April on record by both NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, which released their data this week. In the temperature annals kept by NOAA, it marked the 12th record warmest month in a row.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And if you can't trust the government that told you Saddam had nuclear weapons, who CAN you trust! :)

So, quick recap...

On one side you have all these various institutions which are being funded and directed to "prove" humans are warming the Earth, so that a desperately broke and hopelessly in debt government can impose a carbon tax on an already over-taxed people.

On the other side, you have all these record setting winters we have experienced the last several years, including the current one, in which snow is still falling here and there a month before the official start of summer! In the Southern hemisphere, their winter has arrived early this year.

So, do you trust the word of the same government that insists 92 million out of work Americans translates to a 5% jobless rate, or do you trust your own senses?

The actual empirical evidence is that the sun has entered a period of reduced activity; a repeat of the Maunder Minimum, and is bringing with it a repeat of the Little Ice Age. And we see all those who bet their reputations on Al Gore's Human-Caused Global Warming hysteria struggling not to have to admit they were made total fools of!

Late-season mountain snow and cold

Do you have plans of going to the mountains in the West for a little rest and relaxation? Want to enjoy the beautiful scenery and walk in the out of doors? If those are your plans through the upcoming weekend from Washington state to California and into the Rockies, you had better think twice or be ready for March-like, not May, weather.

Another cold storm is dropping south out of the Gulf of Alaska and will enter the Northwest Thursday and push south into California Friday, and then spread out eastward Friday into the weekend. This will bring wind, temperatures well below normal and late-season mountain snow. Not only will there be mountain snow, but it will fall at unusually low levels for this late in the season.

Government Argues That Indefinite Solitary Confinement Perfectly Acceptable Punishment For Failing To Decrypt Devices

Recently, we covered the ongoing jailing of a former Philadelphia police officer for his refusal to unlock encrypted devices for investigators. "John Doe" is suspected of receiving child porn but the government apparently can't prove its case without access to hard drives and Doe's personal computer. So far, it's claiming the evidence it's still seeking is a "foregone conclusion" -- an argument the presiding judge found persuasive.

The "foregone conclusion" is based on an interview with Doe's estranged sister, who claims she once saw something resembling child porn on Doe's computer -- although she can't say for sure whether it involved the devices the government seeks access to -- and its own expert, who says it's his "best guess" that child porn can be found on the devices.

Is The Army Preparing For A Major Deployment: Orders 177,000 Bulletproof Armor Plates

Traditionally, the best way to keep track of future military deployments - absent unexpected events, of course - has been to follow key procurement contracts from the U.S. Department of Defense of mission critical offensive wartime equipment such as weapons and ammo, or, less followed, core defensive components such as kevlar, body armor and other forms of core personal protective gear. These usually take place shortly prior to major "events" involving US armed forces.

Which is why we were surprised to learn that earlier today, the US Department of Defense revealed it had placed a $93 million order for 177,000 ballistic body armor plates from the US military's traditional supplier of protective equipment, Ceradyne which several years ago was purchased by 3M.
