"All this was inspired by the principle -- which is quite true in itself -- that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying. These people know only too well how to use falsehood for the basest purposes..." -- Hitler Mein Kampf

NATO plans 40,000-strong rapid response force in E. Europe

NATO’s rapid response Spearhead Force in Europe might reach 40,000 troops, a tenfold growth from the initial 4,000-strong force deployed last year, the military alliance’s chief said. Most of these troops will be stationed near Russian borders.

“NATO defense ministers ... [will] make a decision to further increase the strength and capacity of the 13,000-strong NATO Response Force (NRF) to 30,000 or 40,000 troops,” Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said Monday.

The decision is to be officially announced during NATO’s defense ministers meeting on June 24-25 in Brussels.

BEX ALERT - US Nationalist Group Says South Carolina Shooter Had Legitimate Motives

On Friday, Charleston Police Department charged Roof with 9 counts of murder and possession of a firearm. He reportedly shouted racist remarks about African-Americans before opening fire on churchgoers at the historic black Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church on Wednesday night.

"We of course categorically condemn his act, but that doesn't mean his motives weren't entirely legitimate," Taylor was quoted as saying by ABC News.

The shooter reportedly relied on the CofCC’s distorted data on African-American rapists to partially validate his actions.

"Even as we're speaking right now, a white woman is probably being raped by a black man. If we're going to have any kind of honest discussion of race in this country, you're going to have to talk about black-on-white violence."

Israel’s Response to Everything: Collective Punishment

International law is clear. Fourth Geneva’s Article 33 states:

“No protected person may be punished for an offence he or she has not personally committed. Collective penalties and likewise all measures of intimidation or of terrorism are prohibited.”

It doesn’t matter. Israel systematically ignores all international human rights, humanitarian and other laws it objects to – as well as dozens of earlier Security Council Resolutions condemning or censuring its actions and demanding they end, none in recent years because of US vetoes.

Is Big Brother spying on you through your computer?

Initially, the NSA built backdoors into the world’s most popular software program – Microsoft Windows – by 1999.

A top expert in the ‘microprocessors’ or ‘chips’ inside every computer – having helped start two semiconductor companies and a supercomputer firm – says:

He would be “surprised” if the US National Security Agency was not embedding “back doors” inside chips produced by Intel and AMD, two of the world’s largest semiconductor firms, giving them the possibility to access and control machines.

And a government expert told the Washington Post that the government “quite literally can watch your ideas form as you type” (confirmed). Even that is just “the tip of the iceberg”, according to a congress member briefed on the NSA’s spying program.

The New York Times reported in 2011 that German police were using spyware to turn on the webcam and microphone on peoples’ computers:

Will Seizure of Russian Assets Hasten Dollar Decline?

The timing of these actions is quite curious, coming as the Greek crisis in the EU seems to be reaching a tipping point and Greece, having perhaps abandoned the possibility of rapprochement with Europe, has been making overtures to Russia to help bail it out of its mess. And with the IMF’s recent statement pledging its full and unconditional support to Ukraine, it has become even more clear that the IMF and other major multilateral institutions are not blindly technical organizations, but rather are totally subservient lackeys to the foreign policy agenda emanating from Washington. Toe the DC party line and the internationalists will bail you out regardless of how badly you mess up, but if you even think about talking to Russia you will face serious consequences.

The Whistleblower's Tale

Sterling’s case has drawn attention primarily for two reasons: it was part of the Obama Administration’s controversial crackdown on leakers and whistleblowers, and prosecutors had tried to force the Times reporter, James Risen, to divulge the name of his source, whom the government believed was Sterling. The case, known as United States of America v. Jeffrey Alexander Sterling, was treated mainly as a freedom-of-the-press issue, with Risen as the heroic centerpiece. Lost in the judicial briefs about the First Amendment was the black man in the middle.

MEGA BEX ALERT - Putin’s Plot to Get Texas to Secede

To be sure, Russian support for a disintegrated North American continent remains far from official policy. “It's just another mischief-making gambit,” NYU professor and noted Russian commentator Mark Galeotti told me. “Nothing seriously to be worried about.” Still, the mere fact that such language is coming not simply from the Russian fringe but has begun percolating upward fits into a broader, darker theme. “[It’s] indicative of Russia’s current information warfare tactics,” Galeotti continued, “which are not so much positive—in the sense of wanting to, or expecting to make something specific happen—as negative, trying to spread discord, uncertainty and chaos so as to prevent the West in general, and the USA in particular, from being able to develop and maintain a strong consensus policy against Moscow.”

Europe’s Malpractice of Greece

A modern hospital is equipped with a variety of specialized wards. One of them is the intensive care unit, or ICU. Here go those who are especially sick and in need of the most devoted attention. The existence of the ICU recognizes that illness and operations do not affect all patients in the same way. Some, who are robust, recover quickly. Others who are weaker, or older, or sicker, may require different treatments and more help.

Southern Baptists Flip out over Same-Sex “Marriage,” Are Okay with Government-Run Children's “Education”

There's something bizarre about watching someone try to kill a hornet with a nuclear strike while simultaneously protecting the hornet's nest from which it came, but that's pretty much what we're witnessing now from many "Christian leaders" who seem to take every opportunity to express outrage and even threaten civil disobedience over the looming Supreme Court pronouncement on the subject of homosexual "marriage."

If you don't like gay marriage, don't marry a gay! Problem solved! But look how much evil arises from one group insisting they have a "divine" right to tell everyone else how to live.

American Medical Association Supports the Elimination of Parents’ Right to Make Vaccine Choices, and California Takes Another Step Toward Medical Tyranny

In 2012, then California Assemblyman Dr. Richard Pan (D-Sacramento)1 assured Californians that a bill he sponsored (AB2107) to increase child vaccination rates in the state would not remove parental rights to make vaccine choices for their children.

Now a state Senator, he's singing a different tune. This year he worked with attorney Senator Ben Allen (D-Santa Monica) to fast track a bill (SB277) through the state legislature

The bill would make it virtually impossible for California children to attend daycare or get a school education without receiving more than 40 doses of 10 federally recommended vaccines or filing a medical vaccine exemption granted by a medical doctor.

International Criticism Of US Human Rights Record Over Pinkney Case

By Brandon Turbeville

US violations of Constitutional and human rights have long been recognized by countries who have been unfortunate enough to find themselves victims of Western and US imperialism. These countries have, on occasion, also been vocal about them.

European silence has come despite the incessant wars committed overseas, the enormous population of imprisoned people in the US, the elimination of privacy, dictatorship of corporations and banks, and the authoritarian crackdown on American citizens.

Recently, however, a respected member of the Italian judicial community, Ferdinando Imposimato, was moved by the case of Rev. Edward Pinkney of Benton Harbor, Michigan...

Gaza's amazing dinosaur attraction takes you back millions of years

J G Ballard needed environmental change to bring the dinosaurs back to life in his 1962 novel The Drowned World. At Gaza's DinoZoo, though, Palestinian engineers, with German support, have used animatronic technology to do just that.

Owner Iskander Abu-Karam has spent a lot of money on the attraction, not least because of the shortage of the resources needed. "I wanted to challenge the siege on Gaza and offer something new for my guests," he explained. "DinoZoo is a very popular attraction that takes take our guests on a journey that started and ended millions of years ago."

Papal Impropriety: The Dark Secrets Of The Vatican Bank

The Vatican Bank has been plagued by corruption and criminality ever since it was established in 1942. Yet this is hardly a surprise, given that no bona fide legal system is currently in place to ensure check and balances for the bank of God.

The scandals surrounding the Vatican’s finances strain credulity. At the heart of the Catholic Church, we find murder, collusion with violent crime, bribery and money laundering.

But the Church has, and will, never admit to any financial wrongdoing. With an image of sanctity to protect, the Catholic Church simply cannot admit to any illegality or immorality. In this respect, there is a parallel with the Holy See’s persistent denials of sexual abuse among the clergy. This pretence of moral purity can be maintained because the tiny Vatican state is not subject to Italian law enforcement.

The Catholic Church discovered 2 cases of child pornography possession within the Vatican last year

In his report, Milano said Vatican police had investigated "two delicate cases, of varying degrees of seriousness, of possession of child pornography material" by people living or working inside the city-state, which is the headquarters of the 1.2 billion member Church.

The prosecutor gave no details but a Vatican spokesman said one of them involved Jozef Wesolowski, a former archbishop who was arrested last September in the Vatican on charges of having paid for sex with children while he was a papal ambassador in the Dominican Republic.

Francis approved the arrest - the first inside the Vatican related to allegations of sexual abuse - in order to send a strong signal that even high-ranking Church officials would be held accountable if they committed abuse, the Vatican said at the time.

Italian media reported at the time of his arrest that child pornography was found on his computer. He is currently under arrest in the Vatican awaiting trial.

Lessons from the UN Gaza report: Next stop, ICC?

To the relief of Israel and the chagrin of many others, the UN report into last summer’s war in Gaza is not an indictment of Israel. It does not declare conclusively that Israel committed war crimes and it is certainly not one-sided. The Human Rights Council report released on Monday is valuable, nevertheless, when read as a preview of what might transpire in a much more consequential body investigating the 2014 war — the International Criminal Court.

Israeli settlers chop down 70 olive trees in Salfit, Nablus

Israeli settlers chopped down more than 70 olive trees between the towns of Yasuf and Jammain in the northern West Bank districts of Salfit and Nablus on Monday.

Palestinian farmers said the trees, which lay close to the illegal Israeli settlements of Ariel and Taffuh, had been cut down using chainsaws.

A local, Khalid Maali, said that because the land lay close to settler roads near the Zaatara checkpoint it had been easy for the settlers to flee afterwards.

The olive industry supports the livelihoods of roughly 80,000 families in the occupied West Bank, and the Salfit district in particular is known for its fertile soil and large olive trees.

Settlers attack olive trees in a bid to oust Palestinian farmers from their land, and a loss of a year's crops can cause destitution for farming families.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is worse than a year. It takes ten years of growth before an olive tree produces a usable crop.

Scathing reactions over Arab MK's participation in Gaza flotilla

oint Arab List MK Bassel Ghattas' decision to participate in the upcoming Gaza flotilla has caused an uproar in the Knesset on Monday.

Kulanu MK Meirav Ben-Ari (Kulanu) requested a special Knesset session on the matter, which was scheduled for Wednesday.

"The MK is making a cynical use of his immunity and looking to solve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict with provocation rather than peace," Ben-Ari said. "A member of Knesset who acts against the Knesset and the State of Israel, his immunity should be reconsidered and the Knesset's Ethics Committee should examine this case."

In an interview with Ynet, Ghattas called MKs condemning his decision "hypocrites," saying they were "trying to make headlines at my expense. I want to remind them that Israel apologized over the Marmara affair."

Still, each side in the long-running conflict saw what it wanted in any such report: Israelis condemned it as further evidence of bias against them in the United Nations writ large, while Palestinians embraced it as further ballast in their bid to punish Israelis in the International Criminal Court — and the court of international public opinion.

I will look forward to the Pope now having everyone of his security guards and Police at the Vatican get rid of their guns. I will look forward to the Vatican not investing anymore money buying guns for their Police and security.

I want to see the Vatican and all world governments get rid of their guns to prove how Christian they are!

So.... before the push comes to take away our guns, due to having them is not "Christian" now, lets see how Christian the Pope is.

NYT’s Orwellian View of Ukraine

In the up-is-down Orwellian world that is now The New York Times’ editorial page, there was no coup in Ukraine in 2014, no U.S.-driven “regime change,” no provocation on Russia’s border, just Moscow’s aggression — a sign of how propaganda has taken over mainstream U.S. media.

In George Orwell’s 1984, the leaders of Oceania presented “Two Minutes Hate” in which the image of an enemy was put on display and loyal Oceanianians expressed their rage, all the better to prepare them for the country’s endless wars and their own surrender of freedom. And, now, in America, you have The New York Times.

Net of the latest ELA increase, when adding some €38 billion in collateralized EFSF bonds and other collateral usage, we find that we have not only reached parity but crossed it: as of this moment Greek deposits, which are generously estimated at €120 billion but in reality are lower, are less than the total ECB claims on Greek banks and the Bank of Greece, amounting to €126 billion. And with that the possibility of a Greek bail-in which could amount to up to 100% of total Greek deposits, becomes all too real.

Sperm count: Fertility in men on the decline due to everyday plastics say scientists

Men are suffering a sharp decline in fertility because of the prevalence of every-day plastics, say scientists.

And Niels Jørgensen, associate professor at Rigshospital, Copenhagen, has told the European Society for Human Reproduction and Embryology's conference in Lisbon that only one in four men have "good" sperm.

According to The Times, phthalates, chemicals that are found in shower curtains, car dashboards and cleaning materials, "can be breathed in, consumed or absorbed through the skin of pregnant women, inhibiting testosterone production in male foetuses, leading to sons with low sperm counts".

Jørgensen said that society should be "very worried" by these studies, and advised women to try to avoid cosmetics.

Greece Capitulates: Tsipras Crosses "Red Line", Will Accept Bailout Extension

On the Greek side of the table, Tsipras must convince Syriza party hardliners that concessions are preferable to Grexit and the economic malaise that would come with redenomination. For some on the Left Platform, compromising the party’s electoral mandate is simply not an option and it’s these lawmakers (who just two weeks ago voted to leave the euro and default) that Tsipras will need to sway or else attempt to push an unpopular agreement through parliament a gambit which implicitly assumes that the ensuing political upheaval and voter backlash is preferable to economic collapse. The problem with the latter approach is that it effectively means the troika will have succeeded in using financial leverage to subvert the democratic process, an eventuality that die hard Syriza hardliners are in no mood to suffer.

The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee warns that America is dealing with “the highest threat level we have ever faced in this country.”

“They’re very good at communicating through separate avenues where it’s very difficult to track,” Nunes said. “That’s why when you get a young person who is willing to get into these chat rooms, go on the Internet and get radicalized, it’s something we are not only unprepared [for], we are also not used to it in this country.”

The Copyright Amendment (Online Infringement) Bill 2015 allows companies to go to a Federal Court judge to get overseas sites blocked if their "primary purpose" is facilitating copyright infringement.

Dr Matthew Rimmer, an associate professor at the Australian National University College of Law, points out that there is a lack of definitions within the bill: "What is 'primary purpose'? There's no definition. What is 'facilitation'? Again, there's no definition." That's dangerous, he believes, because it could lead to "collateral damage," whereby sites that don't intend to hosting infringing material are blocked because a court might rule they were covered anyway. Moreover, Rimmer told The Sydney Morning Herald that controversial material of the kind released by WikiLeaks is often under copyright, which means that the new law could be used to censor information that was embarrassing, but in the public interest.

Major internet providers slowing traffic speeds for thousands across US

Major internet providers, including AT&T, Time Warner and Verizon, are slowing data from popular websites to thousands of US businesses and residential customers in dozens of cities across the country, according to a study released on Monday.

The study, conducted by internet activists BattlefortheNet, looked at the results from 300,000 internet users and found significant degradations on the networks of the five largest internet service providers (ISPs), representing 75% of all wireline households across the US.

The findings come weeks after the Federal Communications Commission introduced new rules meant to protect “net neutrality” – the principle that all data is equal online – and keep ISPs from holding traffic speeds for ransom.

Cynically: the Day of Memory and Grief The EU extended sanctions against Russia

Google Translate: Well aware of the significance of the date of June 22 for Russia, the European Union formally extended sanctions against the country for another six months. Amendments approved the Foreign Minister of EU member states. However, Moscow has made it clear that Europe will respond in kind. Although Europe and so, in fact, imposes sanctions against itself.

Sanctions against Russia extended until 31 January 2016 to the applause of the NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg and without any discussion. Moscow, it seems, is not very surprising.

Battle for Oceania

The reason behind the 2015 scandal was related to the collection of intelligence data by the New Zealand Security Intelligence Service for the USA which increased competition between the great powers of the world to gain control over this region of strategic importance. This situation benefits Russia directly.

The renewed Russian presence in Vietnam has predictably set the alarm bells ringing in the Pentagon, with the commander of the US Army in the Pacific confirming that Russian strategic bombers circling the massive American military base in Guam are being refuelled at Cam Ranh Bay.

He also claims a lot of people in the Ukrainian military want to switch to the self-proclaimed republics’ side, including officers. According to Kolomiyets, hundreds have already abandoned Kiev.
“Look at who is actually fighting. Only the volunteers from nationalist squads,” the defector said at the news conference.
There is growing dissatisfaction with the commanders, Kolomiyets said. “Soon, there is going to be unrest within the military. They do not understand the orders they are given, to kill civilians. We are going to see that by autumn, everything will change.”

Going on holiday to Greece? Tourists warned to take enough money in case cash machines are switched off in euro crisis

Crisis plans to help British holidaymakers were being drawn up last night as Greece lurched closer to bankruptcy and exit from the eurozone.

As the Government held talks on how Britons will be assisted if they become stranded, tourists were advised to take enough euro notes to cover emergencies in case Greek banks switch off cash machines.

It came as Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras defiantly refused to implement austerity measures needed to unlock emergency funds to avoid a debt default.

Pentagon Chief says Ukraine Issue Demands Political & Military Response

Arriving in Berlin on Sunday, Carter said that the cooling of relations between Washington, Europe and Moscow could last until the end of Vladimir Putin’s presidency. That’s because Russia is unlikely to change its current political course while Putin remains the country’s leader, Carter said. As such, both the U.S. and NATO are preparing for a long period of tension. Carter also criticized recent comments by President Putin that Russia would target its military forces against any “threats” it faces, saying that such behavior is ‘inappropriate’.

US concerned over Greece-Russia friendship — media

The United States is worried about the strengthening of Greece’s ties with Russia and that is why Washington is secretly convincing Germany and its partners in the European Union to agree to compromise in the talks on the settlement of Athens’ debt, The Financial Times reported.
"As Washington tries to maintain a united western front in support of sanctions on Russia over Ukraine, a Greek default could provide Moscow an opportunity to sow new divisions among America’s European allies," the influential British newspaper wrote Sunday.
"You can easily see how geopolitically this would be a gift to Russia," FT quoted Sebastian Mallaby at the Council on Foreign Relations as saying. "You do not want Europe to have to deal with a Greece that is a member of NATO but which all of a sudden hates the west and is cosying up to Russia."

In the wake of the gruesome massacre of nine black churchgoers by an angry racist white gunman in Charleston, South Carolina, comes an article that encourages black youth to be angry, racist, uninformed, unforgiving, intentionally opaque, and to explicitly exclude and ignore “white folks” in a direct call for unrest and anarchy.

A couple of years ago, a bill was introduced (H.R. 933) allowing big biotech corporations, like Monsanto, to override United States federal courts on the issue of planting experimental genetically engineered crops all across the US. This rendered the government powerless when it came to stopping other biotechnology corporations from planting and harvesting. The measure shields sellers of genetically modified seeds from lawsuits, even if the resulting crops cause harm. As a result, the public labelled this bill “The Monsanto Protection Act.”

Last month marked the one-year anniversary of the election of oligarch Petro Poroshenko to the presidency of Ukraine. The Poroshenko regime came to power in the aftermath of a US- and German-backed coup, spearheaded by fascist forces, which ousted President Victor Yanukovych in February 2014. Since coming to power, the right-wing government has waged a brutal military campaign against pro-Russian separatists in the eastern Donbass region, implemented brutal austerity measures and banned the public display of Communist symbols.

UN Court Seeks Prison Term for Journalist

The United Nations “Special Tribunal for Lebanon” (STL) was ostensibly set up to find and bring to justice the killers of Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq Hariri, who was murdered a decade ago along with more than 20 others in a massive bomb explosion. But rather than fulfilling its mandate after squandering some $500 million tax dollars, the UN court is seeking to put journalist Karma Khayat (shown) in prison for seven years — not for killing the late Lebanese leader, but for her groundbreaking reporting on the case that exposed the court’s stunning incompetence. The Hague-based UN outfit is also demanding that Khayat’s media outlet, Beirut-based TV news station Al-Jadeed, hand over up to $7 million in “fines.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It was the assassination of Hariri, blamed on Syria, that forced Syria to leave Lebanon, leaving it wide open for the subsequent attack by Israel.

Marines looking to deploy on foreign ships because the U.S. doesn’t have enough

Anyone who thinks Barack Obama never saw a dollar he didn’t want to spend . . . OK, that’s probably true, but there are some reasons for spending a dollar for which he doesn’t have much use. And as we all know, the military is at the top of that list. Every dollar spent on the Armed Forces is a dollar Obama can’t spend regulating industry, having the IRS harass his political opponents or illegally subsidizing health care premiums.

So why build enough ships for the Marines to fulfill their responsibilities. President Leading From Behind doesn’t want the U.S. to be a global leader anyway, and hey, there’s always foreign ships! Maybe they can hitch a ride on them. Now this is the point where you probably think I’m slipping into the absurd to get your attention.

Along with filing financial reports filled with errors and misstatements, “Big Four” accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers neglected to verify whether the Clinton Foundation obtained tax-exempt status for its various sub-entities, including its AIDS charity, contends respected Wall Street analyst Charles Ortel.

As WND has reported, Ortel’s six-month investigation indicates the Clintons have diverted tens millions of dollars donated for charitable purposes to the personal enrichment of themselves and their close associates.

He says PWC neglected to exercise due diligence in fulfilling its professional responsibilities in conducting even the most basic inquiries required of an honest audit.

Free Speech Under Fire: Subpoenas, Gag Orders over Reader Comments at Reason Magazine

A bizarre government assault on Reason Magazine has been in progress for the past two weeks, and in a nice Kafkaesque touch, the magazine was barred from talking about the situation with a gag order.

In fact, they weren’t even allowed to acknowledge the existence of the subpoenas issued over comments left by readers to a blog post. Fortunately, Reason was able to get the gag order lifted on Thursday, with help from the U.S. Attorney’s Office… but the saga is far from over, and it has disturbing implications for free speech in the Information Age.

Bankers Think They Have an Ethical Duty to Steal From Taxpayers

Ed Kane, a professor of finance at Boston College, studies the dangerous risk-taking of giant banks. He sees the cultures of Wall Street and regulators coming together to turn taxpayers into victims of theft and great harm. Like extreme drunk drivers before MADD or smokers on airplanes prior to the 1980s ban, megabankers currently get away with endangering others with little fear of repercussions. Kane discusses how changes in corporate law and culture must make it legally and socially unacceptable for bankers to blow their toxic fumes at the rest of us.

Feds bust four fake cancer charities that defrauded $187 million from Americans

A string of cancer charities -- the Cancer Fund of America, Cancer Support Services, the Breast Cancer Society and the Children's Cancer Fund of America -- have turned out to be manipulative frauds run by a family of con artists. The money they raised for cancer patients actually went to pay for personal luxuries instead -- Disney World trips, jet ski outings, new cars, college tuition and luxury travel.

"This is as about as bad as it can get: taking money away from cancer victims," said Jessica Rich, chief of the Federal Trade Commission Bureau of Consumer Protection. The FTC was joined by the attorney general and law enforcement officials from all 50 states in the case against the fake cancer charities.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That these charities were fakes has been known for years, but only now is the government finally taking action, to quell the public outrage that such things are allowed to happen here in the US.

The truth is out: money is just an IOU, and the banks are rolling in it

Last week, something remarkable happened. The Bank of England let the cat out of the bag. In a paper called "Money Creation in the Modern Economy", co-authored by three economists from the Bank's Monetary Analysis Directorate, they stated outright that most common assumptions of how banking works are simply wrong, and that the kind of populist, heterodox positions more ordinarily associated with groups such as Occupy Wall Street are correct. In doing so, they have effectively thrown the entire theoretical basis for austerity out of the window.

Invisible No More: US Stealth Subs to Lose Unbeatable Advantage

Almost 60 years ago US stealth submarines had become game-changers in underwater warfare, while the advent of nuclear propulsion allowed this craft to remain beneath the waves for protracted periods of time. No longer could anti-submarine forces rely on radio or radars in order to detect elusive US subs.

However, a new technological leap is about to upset the US Navy's applecart. Big Data, non-acoustic detection, and fire-control technology will allow hostile antisubmarine (ASW) forces to detect the traces of a US stealth sub, converting this information into tracking and targeting data.

“Sentence First, Verdict Afterwards”: The Alice in Wonderland World of Fast-tracked Secret Trade Agreements

While the deals are being negotiated, lawmakers can see their terms only under the strictest secrecy, and they can be subjected to criminal prosecution for revealing those terms. What we know of them comes only through WikiLeaks. The agreements are being treated as if they were a matter of grave national security, yet they are not about troop movements or military strategy. Something else is obviously going on.

I do not consider myself bound by a treaty (or any other obligation) not approved of by all of the people, and by that I do NOT mean that grand asylum for the aged and inform on Capitol Hill, but We The People.

Germany & the Greek Crisis

• Bankers using Chancellor Merkel to destroy Europe.

The last war against Germany, which wound down in 1945 without a peace treaty, is continued today by the banksters. The German people, like the American people, must hand over the fruits of their prodigious industry to financial pharaohs growing fat off the labor of wage-slaves. In the plutocrats’ unending battle to draw all wealth and power to themselves, the latest weapons are Greece and its financial woes, exploited through direct transfers of massive wealth to international banking cartels, which are being leveraged additionally to bring down European civilization. And the person with her finger on the launch button of this economic weapon of mass destruction is Germany’s chancellor, Angela Dorothea Merkel.

Fracking poses 'significant' risk to humans and should be temporarily banned across EU, says new report: A major scientific study says the process uses toxic and carcinogenic chemicals and that an EU-wide ban should be issued until safeguards are in place

A major new scientific study has concluded that the controversial gas extraction technique known as fracking poses a “significant” risk to human health and British wildlife, and that an EU-wide moratorium should be implemented until widespread regulatory reform is undertaken.
