Why Chicago’s Bonds Are Junk

Illinois’s domination by public unions has the state dancing on the edge of fiscal freefall. The state Supreme Court ruled last week that Springfield can’t alter pension benefits, prompting Moody’s this week to downgrade the debt of the city, its public schools and park district all to junk status. Now the Chicago Teachers Union wants to make another contribution to the collapse.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Here we go again, blaming the victims. The reason the pensions are in trouble is that back in 2008, the Wall Street ratings agencies rated those mortgage-backed securities as triple-A, which made it legal for pension funds to invest in them. When the fraud imploded, the pensions were bled dry by the losses. But nobody wants to point the finger of blame at Wall Street, so the teachers (police, firefighters) who had nothing whatsoever to do with the problem, get the blame!

KICKSTARTER - The Tylenol Murders

The case that was “Another anniversary and still unsolved” for 26 years had now had a breakthrough. Investigators were reactivating this cold case. Over and over again, the media played the feed of the FBI invading the extortion writer’s Boston apartment— claiming they finally had something on him. Really? That guy? The man the authorities wrote off from the beginning because he wrote the extortion letter with someone else's bank account and could not possibly profit from the murders, let alone was 1000 miles away at the time? Why him? Why now? It did not make sense.

Seymour Hersh Succumbs To Disinformation — Paul Craig Roberts

Seymour Hersh has published a long account of the homicide of Osama bin Laden:
http://www.lrb.co.uk/v37/n10/seymour-m-hersh/the-killing-of-osama-bin-...
Hersh concludes that the Obama regime’s account of the killing of bin Laden is a total fabrication except for the fact that bin Laden was killed.

I do not believe Hersh’s story for three reasons. One reason is that bin Laden was suffering from disease that no one can survive for a decade. His death was widely reported in 2001. One reason is that even Hersh’s “true” account of “what really happened” is contradicted by eye witnesses and the initial Pakistani TV interviews of eye witnesses. One reason is that Hersh’s story is too convoluted for an assassination raid, a routine event. He exposes lies within lies, indecision within decision, payoffs within payoffs, and reports such a huge number of people with advance knowledge of the raid that it cannot possibly have been kept a secret.

Tell the Senate to Vote NO on the Fast Track, Monsanto's Secret Trade Deal

Right now the White House is working behind closed doors with 600 corporate lobbyists in Congress, furiously trying to close the deal on the TPP – a massive trade deal so secret that most members of Congress have never even been allowed to read the details of the agreement. If allowed to pass, the TPP could outlaw GMO labeling and even county bans on GMOs and Monsanto’s toxic cancer-causing products.

While no version of the Fast Track of the trade agreement has been released to the public, language in the recently passed Bipartisan Congressional Trade Priorities and Accountability Act of 2015, which authorizes the Fast Track declares that GMO labeling is an “unjustified trade restriction”!

House Republicans had planned to spend Wednesday marking up a transportation spending bill that included steep cuts to the budget for Amtrak, the federally funded passenger train service. As The Post's Colby Itkowitz noted, Congress has delayed passing long-term legislation to fund Amtrak since 2013, instead repeatedly reauthorizing existing funding levels. The last time it passed a long-term bill, in 2008, the vote passed only after a rail disaster. Which, of course, happened again Tuesday night.

In Stunning U-Turn, NBC Retracts Story That Obama Lied About bin Laden

It would appear someone at NBC News got a rather large tap on the shoulder. In what is a stunning reversal of their confirmation that President Obama lied and lying about the killing of bin Laden, NBC News has updated their original story - that "two intelligence sources tell NBC News that the year before the U.S. raid that killed Osama bin Laden, a 'walk in' asset from Pakistani intelligence told the CIA where the most wanted man in the world was hiding" - to this - "Sources say that while the asset provided information vital to the hunt for bin Laden, he was not the source of his whereabouts." As Slate concludes, while NBC’s story doesn’t use the word correction or retraction, that’s what this appears to be.

exas veteran imprisoned for 35 days for refusing to surrender his Facebook password; fed donuts and insulin injections

Texas entrepreneur and U.S. Army veteran Jeremy Alcede has been imprisoned for 35 days (and counting) over his refusal to turn over his Facebook account password as part of a business bankruptcy court order. Federal bankruptcy Judge Jeff Bohm of the Southern District of Texas ordered Alcede thrown in jail for an indefinite period of time until he surrenders his Facebook account password, potentially creating a dangerous precedent that threatens the privacy and control of all our social media accounts.

According to reports from those in direct contact with Alcede, he was fed donuts and processed cereal by the prison staff, causing his blood sugar to experience wild clinical swings. In response, the medical staff at the facility began administering insulin shots to control his blood sugar.

How it works...

The Hegelian Dialectic is a philosophical approach that in principle explains how human beings progress toward a better and more egalitarian condition but in practice provides the power elite with a strategy for controlling society.

Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (August 27, 1770 -- November 14, 1831) was among the most consequential philosophers of the Age of Enlightenment. His was heavily influenced by Plato, whose social ideal was rule by an elite composed of philosopher-kings. Though Hegel may not have intended to provide a Platonic methodology for the modern-day control of the many by the few, that is how his insights have been used.

British Troops Could Be Deployed On The Ground In Libya

From the daily mail outlet:
British troops could be deployed in Libya in a military offensive to stop the flow of migrants headed for Europe.
Leaked EU papers yesterday revealed plans for an air and naval blitz on the people-smuggling networks responsible for putting migrants on boats making perilous journeys across the Mediterranean.
But the document also suggests ground operations might be needed to destroy the smugglers’ vessels and assets, such as fuel dumps.

The papers say: ‘The operation would require a broad range of air, maritime and land capabilities. These could include: intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance; boarding teams; patrol units (air and maritime); amphibious assets; destruction air, land and sea, including Special Forces units.’

Falsely jailed: ‘I swear, I was not around there at that time’

Awad didn’t know it at the time, but the agents did not have an arrest warrant. Also unbeknownst to him was what they did have: a video captured two years earlier by an undercover Albuquerque Police Department detective that showed someone selling a $5 packet of the substance to the detective from behind the counter at a Southeast Albuquerque smoke shop; and the business license for the shop, Curly and Moe’s, which showed Awad as the owner.

But it was not Awad selling the tiny container of suspected spice in the video, according to public records, interviews and a KRQE News 13 analysis of internal video.

1,063 Documented Examples of Barack Obama’s Lying, Lawbreaking, Corruption, Cronyism, Hypocrisy, Waste, Etc.

Every President, every politician, and every human being tells lies and engages in acts of hypocrisy. But Barack Obama does these things to a far greater degree than anyone else that I have ever known of. His campaign promises were so much better sounding than anyone else's – no lobbyists in his administration, waiting five days before signing all non-emergency bills so people would have time to read them, putting health care negotiations on C-SPAN, reading every bill line by line to make sure money isn't being wasted, prosecution of Wall St. criminals, ending raids against medical marijuana in states where it's legal, high levels of transparency. Obama's promises of these wonderful things sounded inspiring and sincere. They sounded so much better than the promises of any other President. So when Obama broke these promises, it felt so much worse than when other Presidents broke their promises.

Tell Congress to Stop Obama's Secret Trade Deals

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a new "free trade" agreement being negotiated between the U.S. and 11 other Pacific Rim countries. Like other Free Trade Agreements, this one is basically a permanent power grab by corporations and financial companies that will make it impossible for the citizens of countries joining the TPP to choose what laws and rules they want to live under.

For Americans, it would lead to increased gas exports and increased imported foods, while undermining our domestic laws and increasing the financialization of nature.

TPP was started under George W. Bush but is being pushed — hard — by President Obama. In fact, a bill in Congress would give him "Fast Track" authority for the negotiating, meaning that he, and whoever comes after him, would be able to negotiate as desired without oversight by Congress. Isn't the reason our constitution created three federal branches — executive, judicial and legislative — to ensure checks and balances?

Building Russian-Chinese castles in the sky possible with lawyers' help

Russia and China are creating an investment fund for the development of the agricultural sector in the Amur region of Russia. The two countries also discuss the establishment of a special investment bank. It goes without saying that any form of cooperation is beneficial to all parties. However, Russian economists are cautious about cooperation with China in the Far East.
Russia and China will create a special fund to invest in agricultural projects. The parties involved in the project have agreed to strengthen cooperation in the field of agriculture, farming, processing, customs clearance, logistics and food sales.
Reportedly, the investment fund is said to be worth nearly two billion dollars, with Russia playing a minority role. The fund will collect mostly Chinese money, including from those investors who have significant experience in investing in the agronomic sector.
There is also a preliminary agreement on the creation of a new Russian-Chinese Investment Bank.

More than eighty pages of internal FBI documents dated from November 2012 to June 2014, obtained by the Guardian and Earth Island Journal after a request under the Freedom of Information Act, reveal that the FBI breached its own investigation rules when it spied on protesters opposing the controversial Keystone XL pipeline. The rules, detailed in the agency’s Domestic Investigations and Operations Guide, dictate that special care should be taken over sensitive investigations such as those targeting elected officials, journalists, and political organizations. FBI work on “sensitive investigative matters” requires prior approval of the chief division counsel (CDC) and the special agent in charge (SAC), both of whom are supposed to consider the severity of the threat and the consequences of “adverse impact on civil liberties and public confidence” should the investigation be made public.

Obama’s Retreat from Green Electronics

Take President Obama’s recent signing of Executive Order 13691—“Planning for Federal Sustainability in the Next Decade.” The title certainly sounds impressive and unobjectionable: Who could be against “sustainability”? The Order does indeed call for environmentally-sound energy and water use, which is all to the good. And it calls for the purchase of sustainable electronics, which also sounds good.

But buried in its language is a serious weakening of efforts to ensure that the federal government buys electronic gadgets—computers, printers, cell phones and the like—that do minimal damage to the environment. In watering down this mandate, President Obama has apparently bowed to industry demands, despite a long-standing commitment to the Environmentally Preferable Purchasing Program, established in 1993.

New UK Law Could Criminalize ‘Politically Incorrect’ Opinions, Targets Radicalisation

Preparing to introduce a new counter-terrorism bill later this month, Cameron laid the groundwork for the measures by remarking that the state not interfering with people’s lives if they “obey the law” was a “failed approach.”

“For too long, we have been a passively tolerant society, saying to our citizens: as long as you obey the law, we will leave you alone. It’s often meant we have stood neutral between different values. And that’s helped foster a narrative of extremism and grievance. This Government will conclusively turn the page on this failed approach,” Cameron stated.

According to BBC News, the new anti-radicalization laws could even ensnare those who voice politically incorrect opinions.

Mr. John Kerry, freedom of expression and improving relations

It is reported that the United States Secretary of State Mr. John Kerry handed President Putin a list of quotes in the Russian media which were hostile to the position defended by Washington in international affairs, yet another clear display of pig-faced insolence from one who is supposed to be his country's leading diplomat.

“Free Trade” Run Amok: Canada Challenges U.S. Laws Reining In Banks

Under the TPP, could the US government be sued and be held liable if it decided to stop issuing Treasury debt and financed deficit spending in some other way (perhaps by quantitative easing or by issuing trillion dollar coins)? Why not, since some private companies would lose profits as a result?

Under the TPP or the TTIP (the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership under negotiation with the European Union), would the Federal Reserve be sued if it failed to bail out banks that were too big to fail?

Closing the Door on Torture

After I blew the whistle on the CIA's torture program in 2007, the fallout for me was brutal. To make a long story short, I served nearly two years in federal prison and then endured a few more months of house arrest.

What happened to the torture program? Nothing.

US/Iranian Relations: Back to Square One?

Criminalizing Criticism of Israel in Canada

This kind of “lawfare,” as it is sometimes called, is nothing new (nor, one can add, is the notion, also discussed at this meeting, of bolstering surveillance of pro-BDS organizations by military intelligence, the Shin Bet Security Service, and the Mossad). It’s also evident that the pro-Israel lobby has been active in mobilizing politicians in the “friendly capitals” of Washington, Ottawa, and Canberra for many years.

Recent fruits of that labour have included, in Canberra, threats made in June 2013 by Julie Bishop, a senior member of Julia Gillard’s incoming Australian government, that “supporters of an academic boycott of Israel” would have their “access to public research funds summarily cut off.”6 In Washington, a bipartisan “Protect Academic Freedom Act” that would deny federal funding “to colleges and universities that participate in a boycott of Israeli academic institutions or scholars”7 has been brought before Congress.

Fox News host dumbfounded when anti-Muslim activist Pamela Geller compares herself to Rosa Parks

Anti-Muslim activist Pamela Geller compared herself to civil rights hero Rosa Parks in a combative Fox News appearance.

Two gunmen were killed by police Sunday after opening fire at an anti-Islamic art show organized by Geller’s American Freedom Defense Initiative, and the controversial blogger has made numerous media appearances to proclaim herself an embattled champion of free speech.

Geller appeared Tuesday morning on Fox News, where she slapped back at Donald Trump for his criticism that she had prompted the shootings – which wounded a private security guard – by taunting Muslims with offensive artwork, reported Mediaite.

“What would he have said about Rosa Parks?” Geller said. “Rosa Parks should never have gone to the front of the bus — she’s taunting people.”

Host Martha MacCallum was dumbfounded, shaking her head and rejecting the comparison.

Psychiatric drugs kill 500,000 elderly people in the West annually

According to researchers, doctors overprescribe antipsychotic drugs to many dementia patients in a bid to calm agitated behavior.
Peter Gotzsche said that psychiatric drugs kill patients almost every year while causing few positive effects. Half a million elderly people living in the Western world die annually after taking these drugs.
"Given their lack of benefit, I estimate we could stop almost all psychotropic drugs without causing harm," the professor wrote.
Drug trials funded by big pharmaceutical companies tend to produce biased results because many patients took other medication prior to the tests.

China’s Secret Space Weapons Targeting U.S. : “Soon Every Satellite Will Be at Risk”

A new Pentagon report to Congress claims that China is pursuing a secret space weapons program to disable U.S. satellites, GPS and communication systems.

The United States is concerned that the Chinese regime’s “continued development of destructive space technologies” is a “threat to all peaceful space-faring nations,” states the Pentagon’s 2015 annual report to Congress on the Chinese regime’s military and security developments.

The report is particularly concerned with China’s use of directed-energy weapons, satellite jammers and other technology that can be used to take out the communications grid and weaken U.S. military positions.

Why Do Bankers Wage War to Stop National Banks?

By Brandon Turbeville

Earlier in May, 2015, I wrote an article detailing the fact that the fledgling Donetsk People’s Republic, under fire from Western-backed Kiev fascists and economic hardship resulting from warfare and blockade, has taken the extraordinary step of nationalizing its banks and beginning the process of using those nationalized banks for the benefit of the people of the DPR.

As one might suspect, such a move has drawn the ire of the Western banking cartels and NATO governments...

Auschwitz Guide Unleashes Anti-Israel Diatribe

Belgian anti-racism groups condemned a public broadcaster’s airing of a video showing a guide at Auschwitz telling visiting youths that she is pro-Palestinian and anti-Semitic because of Israel.

The video was aired by the Flemish VRT network on May 8 as part of the program Terzake. It was about a trip organized by the “Trein der 1000” nongovernmental group for 1,000 teenagers from Belgium to the former Nazi death camp in Poland. The program is meant to teach adolescents about the Holocaust in order to educate them about the dangers of racism.
Note: Educate no....brainwash yes.

Proceedings launched against man for Holocaust denial

The district prosecutor's office in Gyöngyös, in North-east Hungary, has launched a criminal suit against a 33-year-old man for the public denial of the Holocaust, the Heves County chief prosecutor said. The prosecutor suspended charges for two years, during which the man will be put under supervision, and ordered him to visit the Holocaust Memorial Center. The man posted an image online ridiculing and indicating the denial of the Holocaust in September last year.

The Oil Goes to Israel

Under a 1975 Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), the US guaranteed all Israel's oil needs in the event of a crisis. The MoU, which has been quietly renewed every five years, also committed the USA to construct and stock a supplementary strategic reserve for Israel, equivalent to some US $3 billion in 2002. Special legislation was enacted to exempt Israel from restrictions on oil exports from the USA. Moreover, the USA agreed to divert oil from its home market, even if that entailed domestic shortages, and guaranteed delivery of the promised oil in its own tankers if commercial shippers were unwilling or not available to carry the crude to Israel. All of this adds up to a potentially massive financial commitment.

Mandatory Vaccination Bill Introduced in Congress

Government is force. When it finds that soft force doesn’t work, it becomes more aggressive.

Having found itself unable to scare and/or coerce all Americans into “voluntary” vaccination compliance, now Congress has before it a bill titled the “Vaccinate All Children Act of 2015.” Of course this requirement is being done “in the public interest” and “for the greater good.”

Germany's Dilemma: Critics Want Tougher Berlin Stance Against Israel

... In Berlin a debate is unfolding over whether the old rules still apply in dealing with Israel, only this time it is not being led by right-wing firebrands or errant left-wingers, who have always viewed Israel as a satellite of American imperialism. Instead, these issues are being raised by outspoken friends of Israel ... Still, this is precisely what puts [Chancellor] Merkel in a dilemma: On the one hand, she is losing patience with a stubborn prime minister and Israeli policies that, Berlin is convinced, pose a risk to the actual security interests of the Jewish state. On the other hand, Merkel doesn't want to call into question the old rule: When in doubt, favor Israel. Every German chancellor has adhered to this unwritten policy ...

Allow Israel to kill more civilians, says British colonel

Former British army officer Colonel Richard Kemp was described by a leading anti-Palestinian lawyer as “one of the Jewish state’s greatest allies” at a conference in Jerusalem last week.

At that conference, Kemp argued for Israeli impunity from war crimes accusations. He also descried himself as a “thug” who liked to fight and had disobeyed army rules of engagement.

He argued that the laws of wars and the rules of engagement for “democratic armies” should be loosened to allow “maximum possible freedom of action.”

Kasich says U.S. shouldn’t have attacked Iraq

Dealing with a question that tripped up Jeb Bush, Gov. John Kasich says the U.S. never should have gone to war with Iraq, knowing what we know now.

“There’s a lot of people who lost limbs and lives over there, OK?” the governor told The Dispatch this week. “But if the question is, if there were not weapons of mass destruction should we have gone, the answer would’ve been no.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The 2003 invasion of Iraq was never about weapons of mass destruction. The 2003 invasion of Iraq was about Iraq starting to sell their oil for Euros instead of dollars in 2002. Since the end of WW2 the United States has dominated the global financial system, first through Bretton-Woods and more recently with the petrodollar. Iraq's selling oil for the Euro threatened the dollar's hegemony, and that was th real reason for the invasion, to install a puppet regime in Iraq that would put Iraq's oil on the world market, but only for US dollars. That was also the reason for the invasion of Libya, following Gaddafi's establishment of the Gold Dinar and his announcement that Libya's oil was for sale only for the Gold Dinar.

Derailed Amtrak train lacked latest U.S. safety controls

The commuter rail route where an Amtrak train left the track on Tuesday was not governed by an advanced safety technology meant to prevent high-speed derailments, investigators said on Wednesday.

A system called "positive train control" (PTC) automatically slows or even halts trains that are moving too fast or heading into a danger zone. Under current law, the rail industry must adopt the technology by the end of this year.

The investigation into the cause of Tuesday's crash, in which seven people were killed, has only just begun but initial examination of the train's data recorders determined the train was traveling 106 miles per hour (171 km per hour) in a 50-mph (80-kph) zone.

It would have been impossible for a train to reach such speeds if PTC had been in place, officials said.

One Day After Sentencing, CIA Whistleblower Jeffrey Sterling Tells His Side of the Story

One day after a federal court sentenced the former CIA officer to 42 months in prison for allegedly blowing the whistle on a botched CIA mission, Jeffrey Sterling is sharing his side of the story.

In The Invisible Man: Whistleblower Jeffrey Sterling, a short documentary released Tuesday, Sterling describes how his experience with racial discrimination within the CIA took him from working as an Agency case manager, to living out of his car, to years later facing charges under the Espionage Act for supposedly leaking national intelligence secrets toNew York Times journalist James Risen.

The film was directed by Judith Erlich, whose past works include the Oscar-nominated The Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers.

Wholesale Deflation Strikes US Economy: April PPI Has Biggest Annual Drop In 5 Years

Something funny happened on the way to the global reflation (telegraphed so loudly by the recent surge in 10Y yields to the highest level of 2015): PPI just crumbled by a sequential 0.4% in the month of April, despite expectations it would rise by 0.1% and continue the 0.2% monthly increase seen in March. This was a -1.3% drop in PPI - the fastest fall in 5 years.
