EPA Raises Alarm Over GMO Crops that Are Breeding Swarms of These Mutant Bugs

One of the promises of GMO crops was that they would be more resistant to bugs and pests, however, it seems that the chemicals used on these crops, and the modifications that have been made to their basic structure, have actually created an explosion in pesticide resistant bugs. It was reported this week that genetically modified crops, corn specifically, has created a pesticide resistant rootworm, that is now stronger and more numerous than ever before. To make matters even worse, due to the growing over-infestation, farmers have been forced to use even more of the harmful pesticides that have been known to contribute to cancer, and are suspected of devastating the global honeybee population.

Not Every Kid Deserves a Prize

I recently overheard a waiting-room conversation between two mothers. One complained her son wasn't allowed on a field trip reserved "unfairly" for high-achievers. She admitted her son had made little effort to earn his spot, but in her eyes, it was unreasonable to reward some kids and not others. The second mother was upset because her son had received a failing grade for repeatedly falling asleep in class. "It's not fair," she said. "He turned in most of his homework assignments."

Let me see if I've got this right: Kids who don't try should get the same benefits as those who do? And completing most of the assignments should discount that sleeping-in-class thing? Are we so obsessed with fairness that we raise children to believe everyone should be treated the same, regardless of effort or skill?

Democrats Have the Votes to Keep Iran Deal Alive

Senate Democrats have rallied the 34 votes they need to keep the Iran nuclear deal alive in Congress, handing President Barack Obama a major foreign policy victory.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Did anyone find that radioactive material FedEx "lost" on its way to Texas A&M? Because right now I am certain Netanyahu is thinking that any kind of dirty bomb let off in the United States and framed on Iran will shift the Congress back to killing the Iran deal.

How The Trans-Agenda Seeks To Redefine Everyone

Did you think only women get pregnant? Or only women get abortions? Planned Parenthood and NARAL—ironically both pro-abortion organizations that self-identify as champions of women’s rights—may soon be trying to change your mind about that.
It’s About Control, Not Rights

The transgender movement has strong totalitarian overtones that Americans (especially certain senators) don’t fully understand. How else to describe a crusade with such far-reaching consequences for First Amendment rights? The legal destruction of gender distinctions will inevitably dissolve family autonomy, thereby uprooting freedom of association. Free expression becomes “hate speech” if one doesn’t fall into line with the directives of the transgender lobby or its pronoun protocol. Freedom of religion takes a direct hit any way you look at it.

The Unsafe Child: Less Outdoor Play is Causing More Harm than Good

A Once-Sunny Jeb Bush Appears Irked in Donald Trump’s Shadow

When Jeb Bush stopped by the Hampton Synagogue here on Saturday, he was expected to offer a critique of the Iran deal and a short version of his stump speech to the Orthodox congregation.

But something else was on his mind: the insults hurled at him by Donald J. Trump.

“I’ll just give you a little taste of the ‘low energy’ candidate’s life this week,” said Mr. Bush, referring to the stinging taunt Mr. Trump has repeatedly used to describe him.

Mr. Bush then spent a minute and a half reeling off the cities he had visited since Monday — among them McAllen, Tex.; Salt Lake City; Denver; Pensacola, Fla.; Birmingham, Ala.; Greensboro, N.C. — and noted that, earlier in the week, he had risen at 6 a.m. to go running with former members of the Navy SEALs near the Virginia coast.

“The ‘low energy’ candidate this week has only been six days, 16 hours a day campaigning with joy in my heart,” he said.
But Mr. Bush does not seem to be radiating much joy these days.

Something historic is happening with hurricanes in the Pacific Ocean — and it could mean trouble

There are some storms a-brewin' ...

And although none of them have made landfall, they're making part of the Pacific Ocean near Hawaii resemble a Van Gogh painting.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So far we have dodged all the bullets. Ignacio barely grazed us and Jimena is headed far to the north. There is a new tropical depression called Fourteen-E headed this way that we need to keep an eye on. But there is no question that this has been a record setting storm season here in the Pacific!

HRW: Saudi-Led Forces Kill Dozens in Yemen Using U.S.-Made Cluster Bombs

Human Rights Watch has accused Saudi Arabia of using U.S.-made cluster munition rockets in at least seven attacks in the Yemeni city of Hajjah between late April and mid-July. Dozens of civilians were killed or wounded, both during the attacks and later, when they picked up unexploded submunitions that detonated. We speak to Kenneth Roth of Human Rights Watch.

Lincoln's Jewish generals

The Jewish generals in the Union Army were not well-known and almost have been lost from the history books. The highest ranking Jewish officer in the Union Army was Hungarian-born Major General Frederick Knefler. He was commander of the 79th Indiana regiment. Knefler was promoted to brigadier general for his performance at the Battle of Chickamauga and then to major general during his service with Sherman on his march through Georgia.

Escalating Violence in America: Misdiagnosing the Problem

A number of years ago I moved from California to Alabama to attend school. On my first day at the University of Alabama I was standing in a line on campus and turned to talk to two black students who were behind me. I was just being friendly and making small talk. But the two guys did not respond back. They didn’t say anything. I thought it was strange since I was led to believe people in the south were very friendly.

Trump holds closed-door meeting with Hispanic leader

Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump met with Javier Palomarez, CEO of the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, behind closed doors Tuesday to discuss a number of issues important to Hispanic voters.

According to a statement by USHCC, the meeting was requested by Trump and lasted more than one hour at the billionaire's Fifth Avenue office building in New York City. Although USHCC has previously denounced Trump's rhetoric–particularly on the topic of immigration — as "harsh" and insensitive," Palomarez reportedly agreed to the meeting after Trump's advisers stressed that the pair's disagreement was "based on the media's mischaracterization of his stances."

"We wanted to hear Mr. Trump clearly articulate his views, away from the public spectacle, the media, and the debate floor," read the statement.

Carly Fiorina gets boost as CNN changes debate rules

CNN announced Tuesday that it is amending the criteria for inclusion for the second GOP debate in two weeks at the Reagan Library.

According to the cable network, any candidate who ranks "in the top 10 in polling between August 6 and September 10" will be invited to the debate.

The news comes after complaints from GOP hopeful Carly Fiorina, who was set to be excluded from the debate despite a rise in her poll numbers after a strong performance in the undercard debate on August 6. Earlier Tuesday, political and community leaders from 23 states signed a letter warning CNN chief Jeff Zucker against "inappropriately influencing" the GOP primary process and pushing for Fiorina's inclusion.

Minus Michelle, Obama fuels on cinnamon rolls, walnut bread, muffins

First lady Michelle Obama's focus on healthy eating was nowhere in sight Tuesday as President Obama, fueling for a full day in Alaska, ordered up a "sampler" of cinnamon rolls, walnut bread and muffins.

But in a stop at Anchorage's famed Snow City Cafe, he skipped the weekly special: the Obamalet filled with "Barackoli, Spam and cheese."

Civil war history your teacher never told you about. Ulysses S. Grant's expulsion of the jews.

On November 9, 1862, Grant sent an order to Major-General Stephen A. Hurlbut: "Refuse all permits to come south of Jackson for the present. The Israelites especially should be kept out."[5] The following day he instructed General Joseph Dana Webster: "Give orders to all the conductors on the [rail]road that no Jews are to be permitted to travel on the railroad southward from any point. They may go north and be encouraged in it; but they are such an intolerable nuisance that the department must be purged of them."[5] In a letter to General William Tecumseh Sherman, Grant wrote that his policy was occasioned "in consequence of the total disregard and evasion of orders by Jews."[6]

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So now they will want to desecrate Grant's Tomb (no old jokes, please) and banish him from history!

The Myth Of A Russian 'Threat'

Not a week goes by without the Pentagon carping about an ominous Russian "threat".

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey entered certified Donald “known unknown” Rumsfeld territory when he recently tried to conceptualize the “threat”; “Threats are the combination, or the aggregate, of capabilities and intentions. Let me set aside for the moment, intentions, because I don’t know what Russia intends.”

So Dempsey admits he does not know what he’s talking about. What he seems to know is that Russia is a “threat” anyway — in space, cyber space, ground-based cruise missiles, submarines.

And most of all, a threat to NATO; “One of the things that Russia does seem to do is either discredit, or even more ominously, create the conditions for the failure of NATO.”

So Russia “does seem” to discredit an already self-discredited NATO. That’s not much of a “threat”.

Is The Virginia Shooting Hoax Blowing Up in the MSM’s Face?

The latest discovery is that Alison Parker’s alleged fiancé Chris Hurst, who has only eight social media photos of him with Alison, is probably just her “TV” boyfriend. A guy named Daniel Wulz has been outed by facial recognition as her real-world boyfriend.

Some of the media’s photos of Alison are taken directly from Wulz’s Facebook account, which is now curiously unavailable.

Not surprisingly, Daniel Wulz, is also filmmaker. His YouTube channel described as “The combined efforts of our work featuring Independent Films, Concert Videos and Film trailers.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am still on the fence on this one, mostly because the shooter, a black, gay, clearly mentally ill man who voted for Obama and passed the background check to buy a gun, doesn't fit the gun-grabbers' favorite talking points. But with all the other shootings going on, maybe their new approach is just "shoot everyone until we get the guns."

Refugees Should Seek Refuge In Synagogues

I don’t know how many refugees Lord Levy, Bernard Henri Levy and David Aaronovitch can fit into their spare rooms.

First because Jews claim to know more than anyone else about suffering. But mainly because it was Jewish aggressive politics and Zionist global lobbying that brought this colossal refugee crisis about.

Clinton emails contained spy satellite data on North Korean nukes

One of the most serious potential breaches of national security identified so far by the intelligence community inside Hillary Rodham Clinton’s private emails involves the relaying of classified information concerning the movement of North Korean nuclear assets, which was obtained from spy satellites.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Any Korean donors to the Clinton Foundation? :)

We know that the Clinton Foundation is hiding many of its foreign donors.

And there is one Korean donor who was listed in the Clinton Foundation records, then deleted, then re-listed when the deletion was noticed!

Was the weak private server coupled with the "charitable" foundation a cover for an espionage operation inside Hillary's state department?

It is starting to look like it!

Battle against Iran deal far from over, US senator vows in Israel

The fight against the Iran nuclear agreement in the American Congress is not yet lost, a US Senator said Tuesday in Jerusalem, expressing the hope that further revelations of secret side deals or aggressive Iranian behavior could move undecided lawmakers to oppose the pact.

“We can’t say the battle is lost yet,” Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR), a prominent opponent of the nuclear deal the US and five world powers signed with Iran in July, told The Times of Israel.

The US Opens New Fronts of Confrontation

To understand the essence of the problem, it is necessary to look at recent history. The ongoing crisis which began in 2007 came to China much weaker than Russia, Europe, and the US. China’s economic growth slowed down, but that’s it. Even the collapse in 2009 did not cause a recession. The Chinese government quickly switched the economy towards the domestic market, stimulating it by accelerating the growth of the population’s incomes. Between 2007 and 2015, the minimum salary in the country increased by almost 2.5 times. Its annual growth was 11-15%. Throughout industry as a whole, wages increased almost three times. In fact, the global crisis, started by the US in 2007, didn’t affect China. On the contrary, it has become stronger in relation to its competitors. And it was necessary to do something about this...

Majority of Iranian Public Approves Pursuing Agreement on Nuclear Program

In a new survey of the Iranian public, a solid majority supports pursuing a deal on Iran’s nuclear program. When presented a summary of key points on which negotiators for the P5+1 have already reached an understanding with Iran, a clear majority (57%) expressed support for a deal under which Iran, for a number of years, would limit its centrifuges and nuclear stockpile to the level needed for nuclear energy and accept more extensive inspections by the International Atomic Energy Agency in return for the P5+1 accepting Iran to enrich uranium, lifting of economic sanctions, and expanding nuclear cooperation with Iran. Only 15 percent were opposed; another 28 percent were equivocal or did not know.

Israeli night raids a routine terror for Palestinian children

It’s a regular and terrifying scene in the occupied West Bank: heavily armed Israeli soldiers, often with large dogs, raid a Palestinian family’s home. They wake the children, arresting one or more of them.

This is what happened to Hamza Muayyad Shukri Hammad, 15, when his home in Silwad, a village near Ramallah, was invaded at 2am on Sunday.

As reported by the Arabic-language Quds news site, Hamza’s mother said that during the two-hour raid on her family’s home, Hamza and his 10-year-old brother, Bilal, were detained.

Soldiers raided Hamza’s room, ransacking it. They confiscated phones and smart devices from the home and a computer was deliberately smashed.

Salon And WSJ Delete Offensive Tweets: Here’s What A Twitter Fail Really Feels Like

There’s a saying on Twitter: “Never tweet.” The Wall Street Journal and Salon.com may have a new appreciation for that pearl of modern wisdom this week after both outlets suffered pile-ons from scores of Twitter users over the same mistake: promoting inoffensive articles with offensive tweets.

In a tweet about Chinese President Xi Jinping’s political vulnerability, the Journal on Sunday made the ill-advised decision to ask whether he had “a chink in his armor.” Given the slang meaning of the word “chink” as an anti-Asian slur, Twitter users immediately began responding in disbelief, some asking whether the tweet was purposefully mocking Xi. It was deleted a few minutes later, but lived on through screenshots.

Saudi Arabia is strengthening its foreign policy

The report about King of Saudi Arabia, Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud’s upcoming visit to the United States immediately caused a flurry of commentary, analysis, simple speculation, hypotheses and conjectures in the world media. So far, this is just the first so-called ripple of information. Political figures are now frantically trying to make sense of the reported visit and its potential impact on world developments.

The main question is: will there be a reconciliation between the two leaders, and will Washington unequivocally defend Riyadh from all enemies as it has done in the past, and will the Saudis diligently play along with the Americans in terms of world politics? Or, will King Salman be told that owing to the USA’s development of shale oil, they are no longer interested in Saudi’s “black gold” as previously, and their interest is increasingly drifting towards Iran.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This article ignores the economic dimension. Saudi Arabia is critical to the US petro-dollar scam. If Saudi arabia starts to sell their oil for other currencies, the whole dollar hegemony in the middle east collapses. The US will kiss King Salman's butt, much to the annoyance of Israel.

TAXPAYERS PICK UP HEFTY COST FOR KBR’S DEFENSE IN IRAQI TOXIC EXPOSURE LAWSUITS

The saga of KBR’s contract work in Iraq during the war is proving more costly than ever for taxpayers.

Its methods of operation also resulted in servicemen and women being exposed to pollutants and toxins. Some of those exposed have since sued KBR and to add insult to injury, U.S. taxpayers will have to cover KBR’s legal expenses, according to the Armed Services Board of Contract Appeals (ASBCA).

How Shoddy Science Creates Big Government

In the popular imagination, the work of scientists is marked by a series of "Eureka!" moments. But most science is not about glorious flashes of insight. Instead, its humble aim is to be less wrong about the theories that govern our understanding of the universe.

The best way to judge new theories, then, is the old adage of "trust, but verify." In recent decades, however, this simple advice has been ignored thanks to perverse incentives and human biases.

The amount of funding available to scientific research hasn't kept up with the growing number of scientists in training. To get a bite of the funding pie, many scientists have been led astray. How many? Witness the ten-fold rise in the number of retractions issues in scientific literature, nearly half of which may be the result of fraud. – Quartz, Aug. 28, 2015

During every election cycle, politicians, the media, and citizens alike sing the praises of democracy and the power of the “vote.” The ritual is often lauded as the pinnacle of human achievement — assurance that politicians carry out the people’s wishes. In Kansas, however, a statistician from Wichita State University has filed an open records lawsuit to investigate what she worries may be evidence of voter fraud. Tellingly, since she initially filed the suit in April, authorities have attempted to block her request for voter records.

What Will Israel Get in Post-Iran Deal Windfall?

The moment the Iran nuclear deal becomes law, as seems increasingly likely given growing congressional support for the agreement, the focus of the U.S.-Israel conversation will shift to the question of what’s next.

What more will Washington do to mitigate the Iranian threat and reassure Israel and other regional allies?

For starters, President Barack Obama seems ready to offer an array of security enhancements. Among them are accelerating and increasing defense assistance to Israel over the next decade; increasing the U.S. military presence in the Middle East; stepping up the enforcement of non-nuclear related Iran sanctions; enhancing U.S. interdiction against disruptive Iranian activity in the region; and increasing cooperation on missile defense.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The downside is that once the Iran deal is finalized, Israel, which made such a big stink about Iraq's and Iran's non-existent nuclear weapons, is going to face some serious questions about their very real nuclear arsenal!

Interesting footage of the hand grenade attack in Kiev

Check out this interesting footage of the hand grenade attack against the security forces guarding the Rada in Kiev:

I would like to add a couple of comments here:

First, notice that the guy throwing the grenade is not wearing any combat fatigues or Right Sector or Svoboda uniform.

Second, he carefully checks the movement of another rioter to his right who is picking up a smoke grenade to toss it at the cops before throwing his own, real, combat grenade. Pretty skilled move.

Lastly, he appears to be alone and his action is not part of any coordinated attack but rather an attempt to get some blood flowing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Another covert overthrow? Poroshenko has failed to do what his US masters demanded.

Reporter Makes Bombshell Announcement About Hillary’s Newly Released Emails That No One Realized

Attkisson wrote the following on her personal website Tuesday after the emails were released:

The newly-released batch of Hillary Clinton emails provides further proof that Freedom of Information (FOI) law has been blatantly violated. The documents include material directly responsive to a FOI request I made back in 2012 after the Benghazi terrorist attacks on the U.S. compounds. However, the material was not produced at the time, as required by law. Once again, there appears to be nobody who holds government officials and agencies accountable for their routine violation of this law. So the infractions occur frequently and with impunity. If nobody policies our government officials and agencies–if they are above the law–then how does a lawful society function?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Behind this latest scandal of Hillary violating the FOIA lies the bigger scandal that the US was smuggling weapons from Libya to Al Qaeda and ISIS in Syria at a time when the American people were being told that Al Qaeda and ISIS are our enemies in the War on Terror. If Hillary did this on her own she is technically guilty of treason; giving aid and comfort to the enemy in time of war. If Hillary was acting under orders from Obama, then it reveals the entire War on Terror is a hoax, an excuse for a US campaign of conquest and regime change.

BEX Alert!!! - "Netanyahu wants to resume ‘direct’ talks with Palestinians ‘immediately’ "

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has voiced his willingness to continue the negotiations with Palestine "without preconditions." Meanwhile, Israel filed a complaint with the UN against the Palestinian flag flying at the General Assembly.

"I have no precondition to reach negotiations, I'm willing to drive to Ramallah or anyplace else now in order to run direct negotiations," Netanyahu said.

The PM is equally determined to proceed to the two-state solution and is all in favor of a demilitarized Palestinian state alongside Israel, according to the statement.

Your brand new phone could still have malware

A new phone is supposed to be a clean slate. But alarmingly, that's not always the case.

Security company G Data has identified more than 20 mobile phones that have malware installed despite being marketed as new, according to a research report. And it doesn't appear the infection is occurring during manufacturing.

"Somebody is unlocking the phone and putting the malware on there and relocking the phone," said Andy Hayter, security evangelist for G Data.

Many of the suspect phones are sold in Asia and Europe through third parties or middleman and aren't coming directly from the manufacturers, Hayter said.

Brands of affected phones include Xiaomi, Huawei, Lenovo, Alps, ConCorde, DJC, Sesonn and Xido.

Clinton emails contained spy satellite data on North Korean nukes

One of the most serious potential breaches of national security identified so far by the intelligence community inside Hillary Rodham Clinton’s private emails involves the relaying of classified information concerning the movement of North Korean nuclear assets, which was obtained from spy satellites.

Multiple intelligence sources who spoke to The Washington Times, solely on the condition of anonymity, said concerns about the movement of the North Korean information through Mrs. Clinton’s unsecured server are twofold.

First, spy satellite information is frequently classified at the top-secret level and handled within a special compartment called Talent-Keyhole. This means it is one of the most sensitive forms of intelligence gathered by the U.S.

Discrimination Against Russian Jews in Israel

discrimination against both dark-skinned Jews and light-skinned ones?

snip: “(T)he percentage of ‘Russians’ in senior positions and public office is much lower in proportion to their percentage within the Israeli society. There are no ‘Russian’ CEO’s in the ministries, which means that they are being ignored and not considered for promotions.”

They’re harassed, beaten by police and wrongfully detained - children treated as abusively as adults. Authorities admit harsh treatment, even though they’re good, law-abiding citizens.

Around 200,000 elderly Russians will “get peanuts for pensions” at retirement - even though they spent up to a generation in Israel’s workforce.

They’ll get the equivalent of around $750 dollars a month maximum - sub-poverty in Israel’s high cost of living economy if they have no other sources of income or enough savings.

Ukraine’s Protesters Were Paid to Storm Parliament?

The journalists also managed to film how the protestors who came to the building of the Ukrainian parliament were handed flags of the Kolomoisky-sponsored party. Ihor Kolomoisky, the former governor of Dnipropetrovsk, is one of Ukraine's richest tycoons with a business empire that includes holdings in the energy, media, aviation, chemical and metalwork industries. Moreover, the notorious oligarch sponsors Azov radical battalion, which fights in Donbass. Media, including Western newspapers, have persistently published facts proving that the Azov battalion comprises far-right extremists. According to some reports, the protesters received 50 hryvnia per hour for their presence at the demonstration.

Labour's chief whip accused of campaigning against Jeremy Corbyn

The Labour Party has been accused of secretly campaigning against Jeremy Corbyn after its chief whip allegedly moved against the hard-Left front-runner.

The Telegraph has been told that Rosie Winterton raised concerns that Andy Burnham was not taking a more critical stance towards him with a senior figure in party.

In the call, which was confirmed by three sources, Ms Winterton asked for help convincing Mr Burnham to tell his supporters not to use their second and third preferences to back Mr Corbyn, it is understood.

The claim is particularly controversial as at the time of the alleged call last month Ms Winterton was effectively heading up the party with Harriet Harman, the acting Labour leader, away on holiday.

Hillary Clinton may have broken US secrecy rules with emails from Tony Blair and Downing Street

Hillary Clinton may have broken US secrecy rules by handling classified information from Tony Blair and the British government on her personal email account.

Newly disclosed emails from Mrs Clinton's time as US secretary of state show she regularly received sensitive details from Mr Blair and UK officials on an email server based in her home in New York.

The former prime minister, writing on his own personal account, sent notes on his work as Middle East peace envoy while Mrs Clinton's aides passed on briefings from Downing Street on Northern Ireland.

Under US secrecy rules classified information should not be shared by email because of the risk it could be intercepted by foreign hackers. The FBI is now investigating the security of the email server.

Where the great oil crash hits close to home for most Americans, is when firms such as Houston based ConocoPhillips announce that the E&P giant is about to terminate 10%, or 1,800 people, of its global workforce, in the next several weeks as it copes with low oil prices. "Our industry is undergoing a dramatic downturn, which has caused us to look at our future workforce needs. As we have assessed the implications of lower prices on our business, we’ve made the difficult decision that workforce reductions will be necessary.”

Israel is “Targeting Christian-Palestinian Communities in the West Bank”. Confiscating Lives, One Hectare at a Time

The expansion of Israel’s ‘separation barrier’ is targeting Christian-Palestinian communities in the West Bank, reports Noreen Sadik.

On 17 August, Issa al-Shatleh, of Beit Jala, Palestine, started his day with news that Israeli soldiers were on the land that had belonged to his family for hundreds of years. When he arrived, he found ‘they were destroying the land, and cutting my ancient olive trees, some hundreds of years old’. ‘They came without a warning,’ he said.

And it is not just al-Shatleh’s land that is being confiscated. Close to 3 hectares of private land were razed that morning and 45 trees, some of them over 100 years old, were uprooted. As landowners tried to stop the destruction, violent clashes broke out, sending al-Shatleh’s brother to the hospital.

Three-year-old ultra-Orthodox Jewish children told 'the non-Jews' are 'evil' in worksheet produced by London school

Emily Green, who used to teach at the same Beis Rochel girls’ secondary school and now chairs the Gesher EU organisation which supports ultra-Orthodox Jews who want to leave the community, said she used to teach at Beis Rochel, part of the Satmer Hasidic sect.

"It's not uncommon to be taught non-Jewish people are evil in ultra-Orthodox Jewish schools. It is part of the prayers, teaching, their whole ethos,” she said.

Describing it as a form of “indoctrination”, Ms Green added: “Psychologically, you become so afraid of the world out there after being taught how dangerous and bad and evil non-Jews are, that it makes it harder to leave.”

They are dropping their US Treasury bonds, stockpiling gold reserves, and opening regional distribution banks for their own national currency. This will give them easier access to capital markets and insulate them from financial manipulation by Washington and Wall Street.

The West Point Professor Who Contemplated a Coup

On Monday, West Point law professor William C. Bradford resigned after The Guardian reported that he had allegedly inflated his academic credentials. Bradford made headlines last week, when the editors of the National Security Law Journal denounced a controversial article by him in their own summer issue:

As the incoming Editorial Board, we want to address concerns regarding Mr. Bradford’s contention that some scholars in legal academia could be considered as constituting a fifth column in the war against terror; his interpretation is that those scholars could be targeted as unlawful combatants. The substance of Mr. Bradford’s article cannot fairly be considered apart from the egregious breach of professional decorum that it exhibits. We cannot “unpublish” it, of course, but we can and do acknowledge that the article was not presentable for publication when we published it, and that we therefore repudiate it with sincere apologies to our readers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Good! What he was suggesting would have made an absolute mockery of the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

Texas police bash ‘unethical’ news station for airing video of cops killing unarmed suspect

Texas police upset that a local news station aired footage of Bexar County Sheriff’s deputies fatally shooting a man with hands up want the public to express outrage — at the news station.

Gilbert Flores, 41, can be seen in the cell phone video aired by KSAT standing outside his San Antonio-area home during a domestic violence call. He raises his hands over his head then abruptly crumples to the ground after he is apparently shot by deputies.

“They just cold-blooded shot that [expletive],” the man holding the camera says.

Both the county D.A. and the sheriff’s office have opened investigations into the shooting. Both deputies, Greg Vasquez and Robert Sanchez, are on paid administrative leave, KSAT reports.

But the Bexar County Sheriff’s Department is angry about the news station’s decision to air the entire video, which also appears to show officers handcuffing Flores’ lifeless body.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Memo to the Commissioner of the Bexar Police Department; if you taught police restraint, and how to diffuse, or talk down a potentially dangerous situation, you wouldn't have this kind of footage to deal with in the first place.

But please, don't you dare condemn the messenger!

This happened; it was real; deal with it.

PUTIN SAYS DUMP DOLLAR

Russian President Vladimir Putin has drafted a bill that aims to eliminate the US dollar and the euro from trade between CIS countries.

This means the creation of a single financial market between Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and other countries of the former Soviet Union.

“This would help expand the use of national currencies in foreign trade payments and financial services and thus create preconditions for greater liquidity of domestic currency markets”, said a statement from Kremlin.

The bill would also help to facilitate trade in the region and help to achieve macro-economic stability.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Putin is spot on with this analysis; but I bet it is making Wall Street and the big banks squirm right now.
