THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

"Beware the leader who bangs the drums of war in order to whip the citizenry into a patriotic fervor, for patriotism is indeed a double-edged sword. It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind.

"And when the drums of war have reached a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of the citizenry. Rather, the citizenry, infused with fear and blinded by patriotism, will offer up all of their rights unto the leader and gladly so. "

The New Israeli Government: It’s Worse Than You Think

The new Israeli government is a total victory for the most extreme elements in the extreme Right in Israel. The overtly racist party HaBayit HaYehudi, the party of the West Bank settlers, will control the Justice Dept. , the Education Dept. , and almost all important government offices concerned with the Occupation of the West Bank. And they have secured a promise from Likud to bring forward a proposed law that would make it illegal for any nonprofit to receive funds from a foreign government without approval from the government. That is directed at the various Israeli peace, reconciliation, human rights, and dialogue organizations that get support from a variety of European countries who want to see peace between Israel and Palestinians.

Deutsche Bank's Head Of Global Credit Strategy Explains Why "This Is Not Capitalism"

"... part of the problem today is that over the last 15-20 years, capitalism has been propped up every time it’s about to go through one of the cyclical creative destruction phases. Compounded up that's left us with a big mess to clear up across the globe and a lot of sub optimal resource allocation. So across a lot of the Western World we're left with too much debt, too much inequality, low real wage growth, limited conventional tools to help the economy to de-lever, QE and ZIRP and a political backlash against the mainstream."

Concerns over ballot rigging after last-minute flood of postal votes

A last-minute deluge of postal votes allegedly sparked concerns about ballot rigging at Milton Keynes Council.

Today election organisers insisted nothing seemed amiss – and blamed postal delays caused by the bank holiday.

Fracking Companies Selling Their Waste Water to Farmers for Our Crops

It should not then be surprising that companies like Chevron are extending their magnanimous offer of "crop water" in the form of fracking waste chemicals - for a price, of course.

Repatriation Of Gold From Fed Suggests Historic Vote Of No Confidence

Since 2012, there’s been an unprecedented call from foreign nations to repatriate their gold from Federal Reserve vaults in the U.S. This is an incredible development given many countries’ 71-year reliance on the Fed as a custodian for their bullion. Over the last few years, countries including, but not limited to, Germany, the Netherlands, France, Belgium, Austria, Poland, Ecuador, Finland, Switzerland, Venezuela, and Romania have either formally requested repatriation of their gold or are in discussions with the Fed about it. Some of these nations, mind you, have held more than 50% of their entire reserves of bullion in the U.S. since 1944, when the Dollar became the world’s reserve currency.

Canada passes anti-terror bill that's bad news for online privacy

An anti-terrorism bill with huge ramifications for online privacy has won over the Canadian House of Commons, despite all the protests held against it across the country. If it becomes a law, C-51, or the Anti-Terrorism Act, will give spy agencies the power to gather more information from its citizens than before. It'll even allow the government to monitor passport applications, since it also broadens authorities' rights to place names on the no-fly list. Further, it will allow sharing of its citizens' information across government agencies, departments and institutions -- and there are many, ranging from the Revenue Agency and the Armed Forces to Food Inspection and Public Health.

Worse, they can share people's info not just on grounds of national security, but also for reasons such as the "economic or financial stability of Canada."

Now, however, a Korean quantum physicist has shown that computers will never be able to duplicate human consciousness or be programmed to do so, because they lack the fundamental . . . well, humanity...

Saudi Arabia sets up alliance with Ukraine to build twin-engine transport aircraft

Saudi Arabia has set up an alliance with Ukraine to design and build a twin-engine transport aircraft, Turki Bin Saud Bin Mohammad Al Saud, Vice-President of the King Abdul Aziz City for Science and Technology (KACST) said on Thursday.
The relevant agreement was signed between the Saudi Council of Economic and Development Affairs and Ukraine’s Antonov company, he said.
The financial component of the deal between Saudi Arabia and the Ukrainian company remains a commercial secret.
The future plane will be an upgraded version of the An-32 aircraft and will carry the name of An-132. Saudi Arabia will obtain the rights for all the enhancements which will be used in the design of the new aircraft. Saudi Arabia plans to use An-132 as a civil airliner on domestic flights and also as a military transportation aircraft.

Russia unveils monument to Soviet radio presenter Levitan, Hitler's enemy No.1

Levitan's radio reports usually began with "Attention, Moscow is speaking!" His voice announced Hitler's attack on the Soviet Union in 1941, battlefield victories, air raid warnings and Nazi Germany's surrender in 1945.
Levitan's voice was instantly recognisable by Soviet people and inspired them in the time of war. Hitler placed a bounty on Levitan's head of 250,000 Reichsmarks, which is worth $1.3 million in today’s currency.
Russian presidential aide Igor Shchegolev who attended the ceremony in Vladimir said that Levitan "was an amazing man with a sense of humour... and impressive diligence."
After the war Levitan read the news of Joseph Stalin's death in March 1953 and Yuri Gagarin's first manned space flight in April 1961.
"The most famous voice of the 20th century" died of a heart attack in 1983 at the age of 68 and was buried at Moscow's famed Novodevichy Cemetery.

Operation Condor Trial: US-Backed Conspiracy to “Kidnap, Disappear, Torture and Kill” Latin American Opponents of Dictatorships

Operation Condor was an infamous secret alliance between South American dictatorships in the mid and late 1970s – a Southern Cone rendition and repression program – formed to track down and eliminate enemies of their military regimes. The Condor trial charges 25 high-ranking officers, originally including former Argentine presidents Jorge Videla (deceased) and Reynaldo Bignone (aged 87), with conspiracy to “kidnap, disappear, torture and kill” 171 opponents of the regimes that dominated the Southern Cone in the 1970s and 1980s. Among the victims were approximately 80 Uruguayans, 50 Argentines, 20 Chileans and a dozen others from Paraguay, Bolivia, Peru and Ecuador who were targeted by Condor operatives.

The Middle East map may be redrawn before Iran’s June 30 nuclear deadline

The already extremely complex Middle East may be on the verge of becoming even more so. At this point, the Sh’ia northern arc of Iran, Iraq, Assad and Hezbollah is in confrontation with the southern Sunni arc of Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States (with the partial exception of Qatar). Adding to the confusion are the attempt on the part of Iran to outflank the Sunni arc in Yemen, and the rampaging Sunni Islamic State athwart the Sh’ia arc.

It would appear that the northern arc may be about to suffer a further rupture. Reports indicate that Assad’s forces are on their last legs and may soon disintegrate. Such a development would have the following implications:

The federal corruption case against six members of an elite Philadelphia police narcotics squad will head to a jury Thursday, after a second day of closing arguments in which the defense team lauded its clients as heroes and likened the officers' accusers to "a freak show to end all."

Their speeches Wednesday ranged from indignant jeremiads - condemning the FBI for an "unconscionable" investigation - to sentimental paeans extolling the bravery of the indicted investigators as men who, as lawyer Jeffrey Miller put it, risked their lives daily to stop "people peddling poison for profit."

US appeals court: NSA phone record collection is excessive

The government's bulk collection of millions of Americans' telephone records after the Sept. 11 terror attacks exceeds what Congress has allowed, a federal appeals court ruled Thursday.

A three-judge panel of the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan said the case brought by the American Civil Liberties Union illustrated the complexity of balancing privacy interests with the nation's security.

A lower court judge had thrown out the case. The appeals court said the lower court had erred in ruling that the phone records collection by the National Security Agency was legal.

However, the 2nd Circuit declined to block the program, saying it is now up to Congress to decide whether and under what conditions it should continue.

Twenty-six Things About the Islamic State (ISIL) that Obama Does Not Want You to Know About

The US led war against the Islamic State is a big lie.

Going after ” Islamic terrorists”, carrying out a worldwide pre-emptive war to “Protect the American Homeland” are used to justify a military agenda.

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) is a creation of US intelligence. Washington’s “Counter-terrorism Agenda” in Iraq and Syria consists in Supporting the Terrorists.

The incursion of the Islamic State (IS) brigades into Iraq starting in June 2014 was part of a carefully planned military-intelligence operation supported covertly by the US, NATO and Israel.

Palestinian village fights to survive as Israel sends in bulldozers

When hundreds of Israeli police and border patrol officers arrived in the village of Dahmash at 3am on 15 April, they sealed off the homes and forbade local residents from venturing outside. Within two hours, their bulldozers had torn through homes.

Eighteen members of the Assaf family, including several children, were left homeless. In total, five apartments in three different buildings were flattened.

A video of the demolition has since been posted on YouTube.

“It was very scary for the kids,” Miada Assaf, who lived one of the buildings, told a group of activists and journalists visiting the village on 2 May. “It’s very difficult for us when they come and destroy homes.”

Residents told The Electronic Intifada that police arrived in heavy riot gear and fired gas bombs in the area before bringing in the bulldozers.

Israeli-trained police invade Baltimore in crackdown on Black Lives Matter

For the second time in less than a year, an American city was transformed into a hypermilitarized police state to subdue growing resistance to anti-Black police violence.

Last week, martial law was imposed on the people of Baltimore, Maryland, in yet another crackdown aimed at crushing the Black Lives Matter uprising, galvanized this time by the police murder of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old Black man whose spinal cord was severed while in police custody.

MAERSK TIGRIS - STRANGE GOINGS ON!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This morning,. FOX News was running a story that while Iran claimed the cargo ship Maersk Tigris had been released following the payment of monies owed by the ship's owners, the US Navy and Pentagon "weren't sure." That seemed a strange comment for the US military to make in this day and age of satellite phones and surveillance, not to mention the automated ship tracking system that showed the original seizure of the ship.

But today the same system, although claiming to have received an update only a few hours ago, shows the Maesrk Tigirs as docked in ... Columbus Ohio?!?

Last week, folks who are particular about what they eat rejoiced that there was finally a place that they could go get a taco without being exposed to genetically modified organisms. Chipotle, the popular Mexican fast food chain, announced that their menu would be free of GMOs.

In an immediate paroxysm of denial, the corporate-funded media immediately went about bashing Chipotle for the company’s decision to provide consumers with a GMO-free option to the Big Agri/Big Food offerings out there.

The Most Dangerous Vaccine

On this week’s Real Politik James speaks with Norma Erickson, president of Sanevax Inc. Founded in 2010, Sanevax is an international clearinghouse of information and advocacy concerning one of big pharma’s most corrupt and dangerous profit-generating schemes: the HPV vaccine. Amazingly, the HPV vaccine is recommended by several governments as a preventative to cervical cancer. Yet there is no evidence that HPV is in any way related to such cancer. At the same time the pharmaceutical company’s own studies indicate that 2.5% of women who receive the vaccine–that’s 2,500 for every 100,000–will have one or more adverse reactions. Such figures are corroborated by the number of adverse reactions reported to the Centers for Disease Control since the mid-2000s when Gardasil hit the market.

Last Nazi Fugitive From Justice Dies; CIA Still Not Held Accountable For Protecting Him And His Cronies

Operation Paperclip was the innocuous-sounding name given to the CIA operation which allowed Nazi rats to infiltrate America after World War II. Well, the last rat, Oscar Holderer, died yesterday, and now it’s time to expose the true history of the disgraceful operation.

It Is Time to Call Radio “Liberty” What It Is: Radio Gestapo Amerika — Paul Craig Roberts

Radio “Liberty” has always been a propaganda ministry. Formerly its propaganda was directed against the Soviet Union. Today it is directed against distinguished Americans who are known and respected for their allegiance to the truth.

Radio Liberty’s latest target is an American scholar who is far more widely respected than Radio Liberty. Like everything else in Washington the two-bit propaganda ministry is carried away by hubris and a mistaken opinion of its own importance.

MEET THE PATRIOT ACT 2.0

The U.S. government is on the verge of passing a surveillance bill that some are calling the Patriot Act 2.0. The Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act, aka CISA, will double down on all the bulk data the government has already been collecting on you. Plus now it’ll allow businesses to share your personal info with the government and with each other – if they deem what you’re doing a threat. But we all know that’s open to interpretation.

F*cking DLL! Avast false positive trashes Windows code libraries

A misfiring signature update from anti-virus developer Avast triggered all sorts of problems on Wednesday.

Avast acted promptly by withdrawing the definition update but not before numerous users had fallen foul of the problem. The withdrawn update incorrectly labelled various libraries (dlls) on Windows PCs as potentially malign, crippling software installations in the process. More specifically, legitimate programs were classified as something called the "Kryptik-PFA" trojan, shuffled off to quarantine and blocked.

"We were affected with the removal of DLLs from TeamViewer rendering it useless, Corel, and MS XNA framework," one victim (Dan) told El Reg.

Military site’s forecast for 2025: Economic collapse will lead to massive 78% depopulation in America

According to Deagel, the real concern is the adverse effects on our population, which is currently just under 319 million. If the forecast, which does not include the possibility of war or widespread pandemic in its analysis, is accurate then America may experience an event so massive that some 78% of our population would be wiped out, leaving just 68 million people living on American soil by 2025.

Israel Criticized for Helping Nepal Earthquake Victims

Last week, the Israel Defense Forces sent 260 doctors, nurses and search-and-rescue personnel to Nepal to aid that nation's earthquake relief efforts.

Most people, regardless of their position on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, would probably regard that as a positive development.

But Kenneth Roth, executive director of Human Rights Watch, views the Israeli humanitarian help in a darker light.

Bergen-Belsen Camp: The Suppressed Story

The British troops who liberated the Belsen camp three weeks before the end of the war were shocked and disgusted by the many unburied corpses and dying inmates they found there. Horrific photos and films of the camp's emaciated corpses and mortally sick inmates were quickly circulated around the globe. Within weeks the British military occupation newspaper proclaimed: "The story of that greatest of all exhibitions of 'man's inhumanity to man' which was Belsen Concentration Camp is known throughout the world."

Unending War on Terror

The admission by the White House that two western hostages were killed by an errant drone strike in Pakistan serves as only an ugly little footnote to what has been nearly fifteen years of undeclared war waged by Washington against a large part of the world. The New York Times notes that “…most individuals killed [by drones] are not on a kill list, and the government does not know their names,” adding that “the proliferating mistakes have given drones a sinister reputation in Pakistan and Yemen and have provoked a powerful anti-American backlash in the Muslim world.”

ARE REPUBLICAN LEADERS LETTING OBAMA ADVANCE HIS GUN CONTROL AGENDA?

Republican leaders in Washington are working furiously to pass a massive free trade deal, the Trans Pacific Partnership, some time this month. In their desperation to get the deal done, they are giving President Obama an opportunity to advance the worst parts of his agenda – including gun control. The trade agreement, negotiated in secret by Republican leaders and the President, would give Obama so-called “fast track authority” to ratify the agreement without permission from Congress. This would give Obama the power to insert any restrictions he wants into the trade agreement -- including ones that infringe on the rights of American citizens -- without a majority vote from the Senate.

CIA 'MISSION ACCOMPLISHED' IN AFGHANISTAN: AFGHAN POPPY FARMERS SAY NEW SEEDS WILL BOOST OPIUM OUTPUT

It's the cash crop of the Taliban and the scourge of Afghanistan — the country's intractable opium cultivation. This year, many Afghan poppy farmers are expecting a windfall as they get ready to harvest opium from a new variety of poppy seeds said to boost yield of the resin that produces heroin. The plants grow bigger, faster, use less water than seeds they've used before, and give up to double the amount of opium, they say.

WALL STREET TITANS WHO CRASHED GLOBAL ECONOMY IN 2008 GO BIG FOR TPP

Even as millions and millions of Americans—represented by thousands of labor, environmental, family farm, consumer, faith, Internet freedom and other advocacy organizations—continue to stand firmly in opposition to the Trans-Pacific Partnership, those backing the TPP, including President Obama and a large majority of the Republican caucus, still have two dedicated demographic groups pledging their allegiance to the cause and arguing the so-called "free trade agreement (FTA)" would be good for average workers and the economy overall: billionaires and Wall Street titans.

Murder’s Loophole: US Cluster Bombs Rain Mass Death on Yemen

On Sunday, Human Rights Watch reported that Saudi Arabia is dropping cluster bombs supplied by the United States in the relentless onslaught on Yemen. These horrific weapons — which not only unleash mass death on first use but leave unexploded bombs that can kill for months or years afterward — have been banned by 116 nations. The United States has not signed the convention against cluster bombs, but has greatly restricted their use. However, a loophole left in US law allows the Pentagon’s favorite war profiteers to sell cluster bombs abroad.

Amnesty whitewashes another massacre

Amnesty International has issued four reports on the Israeli massacre in Gaza in 2014. Given the scale of the destruction and the number of fatalities, any attempt to document the crimes committed should be welcomed. However, these reports are problematic, and raise questions about the organisation itself, including why the reports were ever written at all. They also raise questions about the broader human rights industry that are worth considering.

UK Elections: A Cynical Electorate - More than a “Royal Baby Bounce” Needed

For great swathes of the UK, Prime Minister Cameron is seen as an arrogant, out of touch, over-privileged aristocrat who hates the poor, disadvantaged, elderly, disabled, affordable social housing, those unable to find work in a shrinking job market and just about anyone not from his money-mired hunting and country mansion pals. In a family tree festooned with titles he is also a lineal descendent of King William IV.

Labour Party Leader Ed Miliband’s popularity is faring little better, especially since Tony Blair pitched up, all teeth and perma-tan, to “support him 100%”, also donating £100,000+ in £1,000+ bundles to one hundred Labour parliamentary candidates. Endorsement by Blair after Iraq is the kiss of electoral death.

Bird Flu Has Already Killed More Than 20 MILLION Turkeys And Chickens In The United States

Are you prepared to go without turkey this Thanksgiving? Yes, it might actually get that bad. So far, the worst outbreak of bird flu in U.S. history has claimed the lives of more than 20 million turkeys and chickens, and the pandemic continues to rage wildly out of control. Once one bird becomes infected, this particular strain of the virus is so virulent that it can virtually wipe out an entire flock in just a matter of days.

Democrat Introduces Massive Gun Grab Bill In Illinois Senate

Anti-gun extremist State Senator Julie Morrison (D-Deerfield) has introduced a dangerous gun control bill that would ban the possession of most of the guns you now own.

If passed, SB 2130 would allow city councils and village boards to decide which firearms you would be allowed to own – and you know what that means.

Many insiders believe that SB 2130 is the gun control movement’s first stab at legislation that would allow city councils and village boards regulate concealed carry at the local level – and you know what that means too.

The Lusitania, Woodrow Wilson, and the Deceptions that Dragged America into World War I

The Lusitania, Woodrow Wilson, and the Deceptions that Dragged America into World War I

Webmaster's Commentary: 


Thursday, May 7, is the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Lusitania. Americans were told that Lusitania was a passenger ship full of innocent victims of German atrocity. But the Lusitania was carrying weapons of war from the then-neutral United States to Great Britain. The Germans knew it, and took out ads in the US newspapers warning passengers not to sail on Lusitania!

Lusitania was sent across the Atlantic without escorts and directed to sail into an area where German U-Boats were known to be operating, where she was spotted and sunk by the U-20. The United States and Britain denied that Lusitania carried war materials, and the story of the Germans sinking a helpless passenger ship turned public opinion against Germany and allowed the United States government to convince the American people to enter WW1 against Germany.



War munitions recovered from the wreck of the Lusitania

In 2008, divers finally entered the hold of Lusitania, and proved once and for all that she had been smuggling military munitions to England. Germany had been legally in the right to sink her.

Ultra-Secrecy Surrounds Barack Obama’s New Global Economic Treaty

Barack Obama is secretly negotiating a global economic treaty which would destroy thousands of American businesses and millions of good paying American jobs. In other words, it would be the final nail in the coffin for America’s economic infrastructure. Obama knows that if the American people actually knew what was in this treaty that they would be screaming mad, so the negotiations are being done in secret. The only people that are allowed to look at the treaty are members of Congress, and even they are being banned from saying anything to the public. American workers are about to be brutally stabbed in the back, and thanks to all of this secrecy and paranoia they won’t even see it coming.

An EPA employee who downloaded 7,000 porn files, then spent 2-6 hours each workday watching porn. He’s been doing it for years … but the EPA never fired him. Another EPA employee harassed 16 women co-workers … and then was promoted to a higher-paying job with more responsibility, where he harassed more women
