Iraq War Cost U.S. More Than $2 Trillion, Could Grow to $6 Trillion, Says Watson Institute Study

NEW YORK, March 14 (Reuters) - The U.S. war in Iraq has cost $1.7 trillion with an additional $490 billion in benefits owed to war veterans, expenses that could grow to more than $6 trillion over the next four decades counting interest, a study released on Thursday said.

U.S. Catholic Bishops Release Barrage of Propaganda on 'Climate Change' Preceding Pope Francis' Encyclical on Ecology this Thursday

In anticipation of Pope Francis' much ballyhooed encyclical on ecology this Thursday June 18, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has released a barrage of propaganda regarding 'climate change' and carbon pollution standards. Their rhetoric on all this carbon stuff is tedious and annoying to read. For example, one of their documents states: "The broader religious community shares a deep conviction that the issue of global climate change presents an unprecedented threat to the integrity of life on Earth..." I wish they would put forth even one third the effort that they do addressing the EPA, Obama and Congress on 'climate change,' and instead put some of that effort into persuading Obama, the Defense Department, and the Secretary of State and Congress to stop all the unjust wars, the genocide, torture, rape of Muslims worldwide, the fracking, the GMO, the poison vaccines, the U.S. police state, and the spying, groping, and endless civil rights abuses which assault our dignity.

NZ Govt signs up for Chinese banking initiative

The Government has formally agreed to become a founding member of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank - an initiative led by China because it wanted more influence in the world's banking systems to reflect its importance in the world economy.

The bank will have initial capital of close to $139 billion to invest in infrastructure projects in Asia, and New Zealand's paid contribution will be about $125 million over five years.

Finance Minister Bill English said New Zealand was the first western developed country to join negotiations with China to set up the bank.

"Our membership will enhance our already strong economic, trade and investment links with the Asian region."

He said the bank would address a significant gap in infrastructure investment in the Asian region.

New Zealand will formally join the bank in a signing ceremony in Beijing this month.

Israel confronts former soldiers on tell-all mission

Occupied Jerusalem: An organisation of former Israeli soldiers dedicated to shedding light on the dark side of the country’s military is coming increasingly under fire, roiling a country in the grips of a battle against the burgeoning threat of international isolation and boycotts.

The group, Breaking the Silence, says that without its work stories of improper or even illegal behaviour against Palestinians would remain hidden from an Israeli public that reveres the military. But the group has come under attack from legislators who threaten its funding and say it could help turn Israel into a pariah state.

Since its founding in 2004, Breaking the Silence has collected the testimonies of more than 1,000 veterans in a bid to expose the underbelly of the decades-old occupation of the West Bank. It has taken those accounts to audiences in Israel and around the world, including a recent 10-day photo exhibit in Zurich, Switzerland.

5 Tips on Getting Started with 3D Printing

By Brian Berletic

Many people know about 3D printing, and many people may have even had a chance to download a 3D model from an online platform like Thingiverse, YouMagine, or SketchUp's 3D Warehouse and print one out.

The real barrier for wider adoption of 3D printing is the lack of skills most people have regarding 3D design and knowledge of how to actually use a 3D printer. There are innumerable tutorials and support forums online dedicated to addressing this problem, and hopefully these 5 tips will help add to this growing body of knowledge and our collective understanding of this powerful personal fabrication process...

Police in Michigan Seize 6 Children Because Family Was Camping in Tents

A Michigan family which had dreams of camping during the summer in the great outdoors was horrified when state officials seized their six children simply because they were temporarily living in tents, Off The Grid News has learned.

“The government has tried to standardize what a home is and what a home must have, without consideration for if the children’s needs are being met or not,” Christopher and Antonia said in a joint statement. “This was not a case of neglect, but a case of the government telling us how we have to raise our children — that we must have running water, we must have electricity and we can’t stay in a tent for the summer. To the government it makes no difference if the children are happy and healthy. We need to conform to their idea of normal or they can take your children away.”

Ukrainians Dispossessed, Americans are next — Paul Craig Roberts

Americans are already dispossessed of their livelihoods and careers and their pensions are next. Wherever we look, the fate of populations under Western influence are the same. The Ukrainians are exploited, the Greeks, the British, the Americans.

Apologists for exploitation claim that the rich are richer because they are smarter. But the stupidity of the rich is everywhere visible. The greedy fools have destroyed their domestic US market. Really, how stupid can you be? How do Americans buy when they are forced by offshoring out of well paid manufacturing and software engineering jobs into being waitresses, bartenders, retail clerks and part-time Walmart workers in order that corporate bottom lines improve? Who buys the stuff that sustains the profits? Not Americans who no longer have the incomes to do so.

The Two Contending Visions of World Government

U.S. President Barack Obama’s proposed ‘Trade’ deals are actually about whether the world is heading toward a dictatorial world government — a dictatorship by the hundred or so global super-rich who hold the controlling blocks of stock in the world’s largest international corporations — or else toward a democratic world government, which will be a global federation of free and independent states, much like the United States was at its founding, but global in extent. These are two opposite visions of world government; and Obama is clearly on the side of fascism, an international mega-corporate dictatorship, as will be documented here in the links, and explained in the discussion.

Allow me to fill you in on the ‘journey’ of my own family after the expulsion; Rather than going to one of the Muslim countries in North Africa, as many others did, they chose to go to Turkey. Those that went to North Africa received a much warmer welcome, which resulted in my family eventually going on to a new situation in Holland.

They found there that in order to succeed economically they would have to assimilate with the Eastern European Jewish Community (Ashkenazim), a fate much less severe than the forced conversions to Catholicism for those who remained in Spain.

Again, after a number of years they once again moved on, this time splitting up, some going to Slovakia, the others to Hungary. Many of those in Hungary pursued their Jewish educations and became prominent members of the rabbinical community, included was Rabbi Shlomo Gantzfried, co-author of The Code of Jewish Law.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As long as we are wandering through the family tree here, my own ancestors left Judea for Madrid about 70AD, because the Romans were being jerks. We became noble...

... and joined in the crusades to try to win back the old homestead in the holy lands. (That didn't work out.)

Then in 1492, Queen Isabella was a jerk and (after getting those heavy metal torture devices untangled from our naughty bits) the family fled to Portugal. Things settled down until 1758 and the failed attempt to assassinate King Joseph I. There is no evidence the Riveros were involved, but during the upheaval that follows such an event, old scores get settled and once again the family found themselves in dark rooms with heavy metal torture devices clamped onto delicate portions of their anatomy. After their release, the family joined the European migration to the orient, settling in Shanghai, until the start of WW2 which brought my father to the US as an MIT student.

Explosion destroys part of Yemen's UNESCO heritage site; Saudi Arabia denies responsibility

A protected 2,500-year-old cultural heritage site in Yemen’s capital was obliterated in an explosion early Friday, and witnesses and news reports said the cause was a missile or bomb from a Saudi warplane. The Saudi military denied responsibility.

The top antiquities-safeguarding official at the United Nations angrily condemned the destruction of ancient multistory homes, towers and gardens, which also killed an unspecified number of residents in Al Qasimi, a neighborhood in Sanaa’s Old City area.

“I am profoundly distressed by the loss of human lives as well as the damage inflicted on one of the world’s oldest jewels of Islamic urban landscape,” said the official, Irina Bokova, the director general of UNESCO, the U.N. Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It may have been Israel, which has a political motive to erase archaeological evidence of ancient cultures to counter the fact no archaeological evidence exists supporting the claimed great Kingdoms of David and Solomon.Israel's entire claim to the lands of the Palestinians rests on biblical myths about the Kingdoms of David and Solomon and the First Temple, for which there is no hard archaeological evidence. The two best known claimed artifacts for the First Temple, the Pomegranate Temple Staff ornament and the Jehoash Tablet have been exposed as clever forgeries, and locations in Israel said to be connected with David and Solomon are so named out of tradition and "confirmation bias", with archaeologists admitting there is no actual hard data as to what they really were. Contrast that with other nations such as Egypt, Iraq, Iran, etc. where one cannot take three steps without tripping over the evidence of their ancient histories. Such a plethora of archaeological evidence in other countries has proven to be a severe embarrassment to Israel as it underscores the paucity of such evidence for what Israel declares to be its historical origins. Much of the Torah is now known to have simply been copied from other sources. The story of the Exodus actually happened to the Hyksos, not the Hebrews, and the story of the great flood was copied almost verbatim from the Epic of Gilgamesh. People can be forgiven for asking if the stories of the First Temple are also likewise purloined from other places and peoples. So Israel's governments, which justifies its theft on those stories, has a powerful motive to want the archaeological sites in other countries erased, to "level the playing field" by reducing the obvious contrast in the amount of such remains in other countries versus Israel itself. This may explain why, following the US invasion of Iraq in 2003, armed forces guarded the oil ministry while the Baghdad Museum was left wide open for looting and why American forces defaced the ancient city of UR, including building portions of a runway over the site.

Fast-track Hands the Money Monopoly to Private Banks — Permanently

In March 2014, the Bank of England let the cat out of the bag: money is just an IOU, and the banks are rolling in it. So wrote David Graeber in The Guardian the same month, referring to a BOE paper called “Money Creation in the Modern Economy.” The paper stated outright that most common assumptions of how banking works are simply wrong. The result, said Graeber, was to throw the entire theoretical basis for austerity out of the window.

The revelation may have done more than that. The entire basis for maintaining our private extractive banking monopoly may have been thrown out the window. And that could help explain the desperate rush to “fast track” not only the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), but the Trade in Services Agreement (TiSA). TiSA would nip attempts to implement public banking and other monetary reforms in the bud.

“We received emails from the Israeli mission, including direct instructions, which is against our sovereignty as a state, not to believe the recent Human Rights Watch report and rely only on two organisations they recommended,” the official said.

“When we googled these NGOs, we knew that they were Israelis,” the official, who preferred to keep the name of his Western-European country unknown, added.

He further criticised the Israeli behaviour at the UN, which is often supported by the United States. “We are disgusted in some of the European countries about what Israel and the US are doing,” he said, “It is rather shameful that Israel attempts to mislead us.”

Suttle was unsure of how she was going to mow her lawn being that she is physically unable to do so. However, after getting word of her predicament, several heroic children from the neighborhood decided to help her out.

Merck mumps vaccines are a total fraud: Company can only provide the courts with efficacy data from 50 years ago

A pair of former Big Pharma scientists have accused their former employer, Merck & Co., of falsifying tests of an exclusive mumps vaccine in recently filed court papers, charges they say the pharmaceutical giant has yet to answer.

Lawyers at Constantine Cannon, the firm representing the scientists, have asked U.S. Magistrate Judge Lynne Sitarski of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania to force the company to respond to their request for discovery, which seeks to compel the company to provide efficacy data regarding the vaccine in the form of a percentage.

But, as Reuters reports, rather than answer the question, the letter said, Merck has instead been evasive, using "cut-and-paste" stock answers and claiming that the company cannot run new clinical trials to determine current efficacy. Rather, Merck has only provided data that is five decades old.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Given that 90% of the kids in the current mumps "epidemic" had the vaccine, I would suggest the vaccine is actually causing the disease.

Congressmen back role of Saudi Arabia in the region

The Congress members appreciated the role of the Kingdom in bringing back legitimacy to Yemen, saying that Saudi Arabia should be extended all possible support on this matter.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

"Legitmacy?!?" Back in 2011, the US covertly overthrew Yemen's government and installed a puppet ruler, Hadi. This is common practice for the US Government as they have done this against fifty other nations since the end of WW2, including Cuba in 1952, Iran in 1953, Guatalama in 1954, Chile in 1973, Iraq in 2003, Afghanistan in 2004, Egypt in 1981 and again in 2013, Libya in 2011, Ukraine in 2014, etc. etc. etc. Back in 2012, Obama proclaimed the installation of the US puppet Hadi as a "successful" US intervention.

But the interventions are not always a success, especially when the people of a nation understand the real hand behind their civil strife. As a result, many of these conquered nations have successfully taken themselves back from US puppet rule such as Cuba in 1959, Iran in 1979, Chile in 1990, Egypt in 2011, and now Yemen, Libya, and eastern Ukraine in play. The US wants to stop this trend of conquered people refusing to stay conquered, but faced with a war-weary American people on the eve of an election year, is using Saudi Arabia as a proxy to do their dirty work of forcing the people of Yemen back under US puppet ruler Hadi.

"Legitimacy" my ASS!

When Americans look out at the world, we see a swarm of threats. China seems resurgent and ambitious. Russia is aggressive. Iran menaces our allies.

We fight Ebola with one hand while fending off Central American children with the other.

In fact, this world of threats is an illusion. The United States has no potent enemies. We are not only safe, but safer than any big power has been in all of modern history.

Monsanto Now Billing Itself as a “Sustainable Agriculture Company”

When you read headlines like these, you may be confused. Should you get angry, or laugh? Monsanto as a sustainable agriculture company? Monsanto truly has decided to market itself as a ‘sustainable agriculture’ company despite spending billions to provide the world with destructive, carcinogenic chemicals.

You can see Monsanto’s propaganda piece here. The biotech giant also says that it aims to “empower” farmers around the world, while arguably leading to mass farmer suicides taking place all throughout India. What’s more, Monsanto is completely wrecking the organic farmer’s industry in the US. As far as ‘empowering’ farmers, nearly 300,000 have sued Monsanto for contaminating their seed.

Druker asserts that if Monsanto cannot prove that his book is essentially erroneous, the world will have a right to regard these controversial foods as unacceptably risky – and to promptly ban them.

Veterans ripped off by fake research project

A Veterans Administration researcher used actors and pressured veterans into participating in a “secret shopper”-style project, and now the House Veteran Affairs Committee is investigating how the agency spent $900,000 for the faked study.

The head of the study, Dr. Saul Weiner, professor of medicine, pediatrics and medical education at the University of Illinois at Chicago, admitted actors were hired to portray veterans, according to a letter from the committee chairman, Rep. Mike Coffman, R-Colo.

“The actors wore hidden microphones to capture the physician-patient interaction; feigned symptoms that took real appointment slots from veterans and tied up facility resources, such as lab tests, while health-care professionals sought answers to the actor’s fake maladies,” Coffman said.

The Index Of Evil: Who's The Bad Guy Now?

But who should go to the devil today?

It is not for us to say. But we can make some recommendations:

Paul Wolfowitz, Richard Perle, and Lindsey Graham come to mind, along with John McCain, Dick Cheney, George W. Bush, and all the other clownish warmongers.

Of course, we want to be fair and respectful. Each should definitely get an impartial hearing ... and then his own lamppost.

IMF Says It Will Continue Lending To Ukraine Even After A Default, And Why This Is Bad News For Greek Gold

So as we enter Sunday and what may well be the last possibility to get deal done before the "accidental" Grexit scenario is put in play, we thought our Greek readers would be interested to learn that while Lagarde's "apolitical" IMF is digging in tooth and nail against giving Greece even the smallest amount of breathing room, the equivalent of half an our of a typical daily Fed POMO notional amount, yesterday the same Lagarde said that the IMF "could lend to Ukraine even if Ukraine determines it cannot service its debt."

Leading Sunni group rejects further deployment of US and British troops in Iraq

The Muslim Scholars Committee in Iraq condemned on Friday US and British plans to send additional military trainers to the country, stressing this is "not a useful measure", Quds Press has reported.

On Wednesday, Reuters said that President Barack Obama has ordered the deployment of 450 more US troops to Iraq's Sunni heartland to advise and assist fragile Iraqi forces being built up to try to retake territory lost to ISIS. Britain, it was reported, planned to deploy an additional 125 military trainers.

Several other countries, including France, Australia, Sweden and Norway have already sent advisers for the same purpose.

Ebola is on the rise again — and the world is no better prepared for it than last year

The Ebola epidemic could flare up again in West Africa and health authorities are no better equipped to control it than they were a year ago, the head of medical charity Medecins Sans Frontieres said on Saturday.

"The reality today is if Ebola were to hit on scale it did in August and September, we would hardly do much better than we did the last time around," Joanne Liu said on the sidelines of a meeting on Ebola in Dakar.

Writing's On The Wall: Texas Pulls $1 Billion In Gold From NY Fed, Makes It "Non-Confiscatable"

The lack of faith in central bank trustworthiness is spreading. First Germany, then Holland, and Austria, and now - as we noted was possible previously - Texas has enacted a Bill to repatriate $1 billion of gold from The NY Fed's vaults to a newly established state gold bullion depository..."People have this image of Texas as big and powerful … so for a lot of people, this is exactly where they would want to go with their gold," and the Bill includes a section to prevent forced seizure from the Federal Government.

Iraq Body Count: undercounting death with pro-war cash

An official funding document confirms that the Iraq Body Count (IBC), a widely-respected ‘independent’ antiwar group monitoring Iraq War casualties since its inception in 2003, has received core funding from government agencies complicit in the Iraq War, since 2009. A close review of evidence in the public record also reveals that in 2006, the Pentagon used IBC’s data to legitimise US violence under the military occupation of Iraq.

California Water Wars Escalate: Government Orders Massive Supply Cuts To Most Senior Rights Holders

Just two weeks after California's farmers - with the most senior water rights - offered to cut their own water use by 25% (in an attempt to front-run more draconian government-imposed measures), AP reports that the California government has - just as we predicted - ignored any efforts at self-preservation and ordered the largest cuts on record to farmers holding some of the state's strongest water rights. While frackers and big energy remain exempt from the restrictions, Caren Trgovcich, chief deputy director of the water board, explains, "we are now at the point where demand in our system is outstripping supply for even the most senior water rights holders."

Obama administration wants to restructure neighborhoods that are too wealthy and white

This is nothing more than a massive social engineering project, akin to ideas that have failed time and time again in countries like Cuba, China, and Venezuela. It’s failed here in the United States too in places like Decatur, Illinois and Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Why? Because poverty can’t be solved with a hand full of cash and a change in your zip code.

Why have the Jews been expelled from every country they've lived in throughout history?

Best Answer: Because of their own actions towards others, and the way they treat the Palestinians is a good example of their ways. they have never been satified with just being neighbors with anyone, but try to dominate others, and always cry the victim and thrive on sympathy.
Even their story regarding the great exodus was a proven lie.

Could California Ban Anti-Israel Campus Protests as 'Anti-Semitic' Hate?

A 2010 State Department document provides the U.S. government’s only official definition of anti-Semitism. It is a detailed document that adds elements of anti-Israeli bias to the traditional definition of Jew hatred.

This definition — developed to help the State Department monitor anti-Semitic trends in foreign countries — is now at the center of a debate raging about its use at the University of California. Moreover, both critics and supporters of the State Department’s take on this age-old phenomenon agree that its modern-day interpretation could have implications for the way that Israel-related issues are discussed on all college campuses.

Christie, Menendez honored as ‘champions’ of Israel

NEW YORK – Governor Christie and U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez were honored Thursday night as “champions” of Israel at a gala hosted by Republican donor Sheldon Adelson and the World Values Network, a group of Jewish leaders founded by Rabbi Shmuley Boteach of Englewood.

Also honored were Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel, Oscar-winning actor Ben Kingsley and Anne Frank’s childhood friend Jacqueline Van Maarsen. With Israel under threat in a volatile Middle East, and amid mounting concerns about Iran obtaining nuclear weapons, organizers said it was vital to have U.S. leaders standing up for the Jewish state.

War-Weary Ukraine Shutters Cash-Starved Banks as Trust Falls

When Vasyl Klos plunked $9,000 into a bank branch in his hometown of Lviv, Ukraine, in 2013, he assumed it was safe because it was German owned. He was wrong.

Bank Forum JSC had already been sold by Commerzbank AG to Ukrainian businessman Vadim Novinsky, a fact Klos only found out as he completed the deposit. He decided it was too late to back out, but within a year, Forum was declared insolvent and the cash was returned to him in hryvnia, whose later plunge cut the value of his original deposit by about half. The experience has left him poorer, but wiser.

“I’m not going to open any more deposit accounts until the economy stabilizes,” said Klos, a 33-year-old field researcher. “And even then, I would only put money in a foreign-owned bank.”

Why Jeb Bush once thought it was cool to shame single moms

For presidential candidates, 'tis the season of the oppo dump. Or perhaps the season of the background check, as campaigns feed unpleasant information about their opponents to reporters, and reporters take their own initiative to fill out a picture of who these candidates really are. Inevitably, the candidates wind up having to defend things they said or did in years past that from today's standpoint seem anachronistic or even appalling.

So it was with Jeb Bush, who turns out to have written a 1995 book called Profiles In Character that lamented the decline of public shaming as a tool of policymaking.

Over the course of his half-century career, he played Count Dracula nine times. He starred as a villain in a Bond film (“The Man With the Golden Gun”). Younger audiences may remember him as Saruman from “Lord of the Rings.” (Or, Count Dooku from “Star Wars Episode II: The Clone Wars,” but we don’t talk about that.)

But beyond his acting prowess, it turns out Christopher Lee was a pretty amazing human, period. According to family lore , he was a descendent of Charlemagne on his father’s side, and of the infamous Borgias on his mother’s side. He sang on multiple heavy metal albums in his 80s and 90s. He served in the Special Operations Executive during World War II (also called Winston Churchill’s “Secret Army”).

Oh, and he also hunted Nazis.

Orange telecom CEO Stephane Richard was set to arrive in Israel to “clarify the misunderstanding” over his recent remarks about Israel.

Richard was scheduled to begin a two-day visit on Thursday, according to the French news agency AFP, citing the company.

The visit comes in the wake of statements last week by Richard in Cairo that his company, which is 25 percent owned by the French government, would end its Israeli presence if it were not contractually bound to the Israeli firm Partner. A day later Orange announced that it would seek to cancel a recently signed 10-year arrangement with Partner in Israel. The announcement led to accusations of a boycott against Israel by the company.
