Drone Strikes Reveal Uncomfortable Truth: U.S. Is Often Unsure About Who Will Die

Every independent investigation of the strikes has found far more civilian casualties than administration officials admit. Gradually, it has become clear that when operators in Nevada fire missiles into remote tribal territories on the other side of the world, they often do not know who they are killing, but are making an imperfect best guess.

The president’s announcement on Thursday that a January strike on Al Qaeda in Pakistan had killed two Western hostages, and that it took many weeks to confirm their deaths, bolstered the assessments of the program’s harshest outside critics. The dark picture was compounded by the additional disclosure that two American members of Al Qaeda were killed in strikes that same month, but neither had been identified in advance and deliberately targeted.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I find it bitterly ironic that as a former lecturer in Constitutional law, President Obama has embraced the tactic of extrajudicial assassinations, which kill and maim the innocent more often than not.

Right now, this country's leadership looks like a jaysap's nether regions to much of the rest of the world, because the US government talks about human rights, and the critical importance of participatory democracy, while continuing to support our tinpot dictators around the world, such as Al-Hadi in Yemen; the al-Khalifa monarchy in Bahrain; and the Saudi monarchy.

Add to that the deaths and maimings caused by extrajudicial assassinations, and you are looking at a perfect storm of profound hatred in the Middle East against the United States.

DIET PEPSI DROPPING ASPARTAME ON CUSTOMER CONCERNS

?The decision to swap sweeteners comes as Americans keep turning away from popular diet sodas. Competitor Coca-Cola said this week that sales volume for Diet Coke, which also uses aspartame, fell 5 percent in North America in the first three months of the year.

Executives at Coke and Pepsi blame the declines on perceptions that aspartame isn’t safe. That’s even though the Food and Drug Administration says aspartame, best known by the brand names Equal and NutraSweet, is “one of the most exhaustively studied substances in the human food supply, with more than 100 studies supporting its safety.”

RON PAUL EXPOSES THE DRUG WAR AND PRISON INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX CONNECTION

?In Idaho the drug warriors and the prison-industrial complex are working hand-in-hand to deliver big profits to the corporatists by maintaining one of the highest prison populations in the country.
Watch the Liberty Report to see what happens to Idaho families seeking to use cannabis oil to provide relief for their very ill children. Join us with special guest Will Norman Grigg.

Montana Bill to Help Block Federal Militarization of Police Signed into Law

By Michael Maharrey

The new law will prohibit state or local law enforcement agencies from receiving drones that are armored, weaponized, or both; aircraft that are combat configured or combat coded; grenades or similar explosives and grenade launchers; silencers; and “militarized armored vehicles” from federal military surplus programs.

But, handouts of such equipment from the Pentagon are far from the only way that the federal government has been militarizing local police...

Regarding the farcical prosecution of Oskar Groening, the "Accountant of Auschwitz"

The Times elaborated on the purported "atrocities" Mr. Groening's allegedly witnessed at Auschwitz:

…one night in December 1942 when he was roused from bed to help hunt down fleeing prisoners. In the process, he told the court, he saw prisoners herded into a farmhouse and an SS superior tip gas out of a can into an opening. The screams of the prisoners inside “grew louder and more desperate, and after a short time became quieter and then stopped completely,” Mr. Gröning said.

“That was the only time I saw a complete gassing,” he said, emphasizing that “I did not take part.” [...]

In November 1942, he recalled, a crying baby was found amid trash discarded by arriving prisoners. The baby’s mother had evidently abandoned it in hopes that she would then be chosen for a work crew and not sent to the gas chamber. A fellow SS member, angered by the cries, beat the infant to death, Mr. Gröning said, adding that he complained to a superior but that no action was taken.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As it turns out, Oskar Groening has made a career out of starring in media propaganda about the holocaust, including the BBC Auschwitz series back in 2005, another at PBS as well as non-stop interviews in establishment magazines. He has been well rewarded with media attention for his confirmation of the holocaust claims for over a decade.

Google finds numerous references to Oskar Groening dating back to the last century, but only now is he actually being put on trial? Clearly this is a show trial, to bolster the collapsing hoax, or worse, to give Israel political cover for an upcoming atrocity such as attacks on Gaza or Iran. And just like the women who made up fantastic gang-rape claims to get on Oprah and Donahue during the militant feminism of the 1990s, the media which drives the illusion, can always find someone to say what they want them to say, just to get a little attention.

In a particularly spectacular display of corporate delusion, John Deere—the world’s largest agricultural machinery maker —told the Copyright Office that farmers don’t own their tractors. Because computer code snakes through the DNA of modern tractors, farmers receive “an implied license for the life of the vehicle to operate the vehicle.”

The group is headed by a Freemason Jew by the name of Emmanuel Carraso who organizes the secret Committee of Union and Progress in Geneva with the help of the Rothschilds.

1902 & 1907: Two Congresses of The Young Turks meet in Paris to plan, prepare, and effect the penetration the Sultan’s army leading to the military coup of 1908.

1908: The Jewish Young Turks revolt and force the Sultan Abdul Hamid II into submission.

1909: The Jewish Young Turks rape, torture, and slaughter over 100,000 Armenians in the city of Adana, also known as Cilicia.

1915: The Armenian Holocaust engineered by the ruling Jews of The Young Turks, leaves 1.5 million Armenian Christians starved, tortured, and murdered.

Iran Armenians honor massacre centennial

Armenians claim that up to 1.5 million Armenian Christians were systematically slaughtered in eastern Turkey through mass killings, forced relocations and starvation, a process that began in 1915 and took place over several years during World War I and the breakup of the Ottoman Empire.

Turkey fiercely opposes the use of the term “genocide,” saying that the conflict saw many people from both sides killed.

Armenia, Turkey still at odds a century after 1915 massacre

Some 2 million Armenians were living in the Ottoman Empire at the start of the World War I in 1914, which increased turmoil in the Middle Eastern realm and led to its eventual demise.

In the next eight years, the size of the Armenian population in Turkey decreased to less than half a million.

The mass killings, which historians believe led to the demise of over 1.5 million people, began on April 24, 1915, when 250 Armenian intellectuals and community leaders were detained by the authorities and later executed in the then-capital, Constantinople (now Istanbul).

The violence was committed under the rule of the Young Turks movement, later known as the Committee of Union and Progress (CUP), which led the rebellion against the absolute movement, but at the same time shifted towards policies of Turkish nationalism.

MEAGA BEX Alert!!! - "Auschwitz guard offers Germans something rare: A Nazi who admits what he did"

BERLIN — On the opening day of his trial on 300,000 counts of accessory to murder, the man known as the "accountant of Auschwitz" told of the moment he lost his "euphoria for Adolf Hitler."

He was standing on a train platform after Hungarian Jews had been unloaded at the Nazi death camp. The unwitting condemned already had been sent to the gas chambers. The newly arrived slave laborers had been sent in a different direction.

Left behind on the platform was a crying infant. As the child cried, one of the now 93-year-old Oskar Groening's fellow SS officers approached it, grabbed it by the leg, dashed its head against a nearby truck, then tossed the lifeless body into the truck.

As horrific as that story is, what might have been more shocking was Groening's next observation.

"I don't know what else I could have expected the guard to do with the baby," he mused. "I suppose he could have shot it, though."

What Happens When You Challenge Mainstream Ancient History?

Author Graham Hancock is again shunned by mainstream thinkers for his compelling ideas…

It’s interesting to watch what happens when an idea becomes so entrenched that people’s careers and fortunes become dependent on resisting change to it.

Researcher and author of some of the most exciting and credible alternative theories about our ancient origins, Graham Hancock, is well-accustomed to having his works censored and ridiculed by establishment intellectuals and celebrity materialists. In 2o13 his mind-opening and widely viewed TED presentation, The War on Consciousness, was taken down by the editorial board of TED because they deemed his inspiring talk to be ‘unscientific.’ The resulting public relations nightmare for TED brought much needed attention to how an intellectual establishment can control the flow of ideas to a public hungrier than ever for new paradigms.

Hillary the Hawk

Announcing her latest campaign for the presidency, Hillary Clinton declared she was entering the race to be the champion for “everyday Americans.” As a lawmaker and diplomat, however, Clinton has long championed military campaigns that have killed scores of “everyday” people abroad, from Iraq to Yemen. As commander-in-chief, there’s no reason to believe she’d be any less a hawk than she was as the senator who backed George W. Bush’s war in Iraq, or the Secretary of State who encouraged Barack Obama to escalate the war in Afghanistan. If her nomination is as sure a thing as people say, then antiwar organizing needs to start right away.

However, the ministry says that due to Israel’s ongoing siege on Gaza, both archaeological and scientific exploration, as well as tourism, have suffered greatly.

The remote code-execution hole resides in the community and enterprise editions of Magento, the Internet's No. 1 content management system for e-commerce sites. Engineers from eBay, which owns the e-commerce platform, released a patch in February that closes the vulnerability, but as of earlier this week, more than 98,000 online merchants still hadn't installed it, according to researchers with Byte, a Netherlands-based company that hosts Magento-using websites.

Argentine independent scientists support WHO on glyphosate cancer link

While the rest of the world takes on board the WHO’s verdict and moves forward, the UK Science Media Centre is in denial. Claire Robinson reports

In the wake of the re-classification of glyphosate herbicide as a probable carcinogen by the IARC, the cancer agency of the World Health Organisation (WHO), support has poured in from independent scientists and agencies worldwide. The quotes listed below this article were collected from independent scientists in Argentina by the journalist Dario Aranda (English translation by GMWatch) in an article for the newspaper Pagina12.

For example, one quote is from Rafael Lajmanovich, professor of the Department of Ecotoxicology, National University of Litoral, and a researcher at CONICET, the main national research council of Argentina. Lajmanovich said, "The international scientific community has warned for years, backed up by studies, that glyphosate is carcinogenic. It is good that WHO has recognized this fact.”

ZAHI HAWASS STORMS OUT OF DEBATE WITH GRAHAM HANCOCK BEFORE IT BEGINS

Hawass demanded that Hancock censor his talk to remove all references to Robert Bauval and the Orion correlation theory. When Hancock explained that the alternative view of history that he was on stage to represent could not exclude the Orion correlation and therefore could not exclude Robert Bauval, Dr Hawass, again shouting, marched out of the debating room. One member of the audience who was present managed to record part of Dr Hawass’s meltdown which is the subject of this video.

Meanwhile, as the audience began to arrive, frantic negotiations took place off stage between the conference organisers and Dr Hawass. Finally Dr Hawass agreed to return and give his talk and answer questions from the audience, but he refused absolutely to hear or see Hancock’s talk, or to engage in any debate with Hancock. Hancock therefore gave his talk to the audience without Dr Hawass present (Dr Hawass sat in a room outside the conference hall while Hancock spoke).

'I thought it was an atom bomb': Second spectacular volcanic eruption in Chile cakes cities 18 MILES away in ash as thousands are forced to abandon their homes and more flights are grounded

A second spectacular blast from the Calbuco volcano in southern Chile has covered nearby towns and villages in a thick layer of ash.

The first eruption in over four decades yesterday sent vast clouds of ash more than six miles into the air, creating an incredible display of lightning and lava against the night's sky.

Another unexpected eruption in the Los Lagos Region today heightened fears of local waters becoming contaminated, residents developing severe breathing problems and more flights being grounded.

The ash covered cars and houses in cities as far as 18 miles away from the source of the eruption as another massive evacuation effort gets underway.

Previous and equally violent eruptions at Calbuco have continued for up to a week, according to a volcanologist from Oxford University who told MailOnline it is impossible to predict what will happen next.

Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation as Russians Pressed for Control of Uranium Company

The article, in January 2013, detailed how the Russian atomic energy agency, Rosatom, had taken over a Canadian company with uranium-mining stakes stretching from Central Asia to the American West. The deal made Rosatom one of the world’s largest uranium producers and brought Mr. Putin closer to his goal of controlling much of the global uranium supply chain.

But the untold story behind that story is one that involves not just the Russian president, but also a former American president and a woman who would like to be the next one.

At the heart of the tale are several men, leaders of the Canadian mining industry, who have been major donors to the charitable endeavors of former President Bill Clinton and his family. Members of that group built, financed and eventually sold off to the Russians a company that would become known as Uranium One.

Six Month-Old Baby Dies Just Five Days After Receiving 13 Vaccines

According to Alisa, the doctor spent a long time deciding exactly which vaccinations Bently should receive and told Alisa that they shouldn’t give him too many. The doctor eventually decided on a total of 13 vaccinations, which Alisa now believes led to Bently’s death just five days later.

If this were not bad enough, the hospital then decided to blame Alisa for Bently’s death and called child protective services (CPS), who immediately removed her two year-old daughter from the home and gave her to the grandmother to care for her.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Like Human-Caused Global Warming, the vaccine myths are not science but religion and their adherents willing to lie and frame parents for the deaths of their children to protect the "faith."

The Post regularly publishes columns by Ed Rogers, a veteran of the Reagan/Bush administration turned lobbyist.

Who Granted The GMO Evangelists The Monopoly On Compassion?

Apparently, I am a “nut job” because I adhere to anti-capitalist, socialist, human-hating ideology. Not only that, I am working to keep millions in poverty and assisting in “crimes against humanity.” I guess that’s the type of thing human-hating ‘nut job’ individuals do. Well, it is according to the warped world view of pro-GMO individual Paul Evans, who appears to be associated with the ‘allow golden rice’ website and the ‘Galileo Movement’.

Are Leading Economists Corrupt, or Just Mind-Blowingly Ignorant?

Conservative economists favor Republican candidates because it’s the way for them to rise in power themselves, but what about ‘progressive’ economists: are they psychopaths, too; or do they instead blindly favor ‘Democratic’ candidates because of a sincerely oblivious belief that the mere ‘Democratic’ Party-label indicates that the given politician is actually progressive?

The truth about Auschwitz: the role of Poland

Auschwitz, as well as the whole of Poland, was liberated by the Red and not any other army, is the fact. And here was whether Poland is an ally of the USSR in the war with the Germans is debatable. This, of course, is not about the soldiers of the Polish army, which is now in Warsaw considered traitors, and Pansky Poland, revived in 1991.
July 30, 1941 in London, Polish General and head of the émigré government Sikorski and the Soviet Ambassador Maisky has signed a cooperation agreement... The text of the Treaty was published in the newspaper "Pravda" on July 31, 1941. But still almost no one knows the reason of this contract. Although officially it is considered that this contract did Poland is our ally in the anti-Hitler coalition.

Iranian Warships Arrive Near Yemen

A fleet of Iranian warships arrived near the southern coast of Yemen on Wednesday in a move likely to add greater tension in a developing U.S.-Iranian standoff in the region, according Iranian military leaders.

Just days after the United States announced it would send its own warships to Yemen in order to prevent Iran from smuggling weapons to terror forces fighting there, a flotilla of Iranian destroyers docked in the same area.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Yes, I can see the warships featured in the image on the left hand side of the article, and the date of the photo is 7 April.

But are these the same ships which have actually arrived near Yemen, or are they actually cargo ships, bringing humanitarian aid which we are NOT seeing in this image, and were these warships actually going to somewhere else rather than to Yemen?!?

The Iranian military and civilian leadership may be many things, but stupid is definitely not one of them.

I seriously doubt that they are out for a confrontation of either American or Saudi forces; that does not mean, however, that the US and Saudi governments are not salivating at the possibility of ginning up a false flag to be blamed on Iran, and throw the region, and the world, into further turmoil.

EPP: EU should tell Russia we are ready to go to war

The EPP is the largest political group in the European Parliament, and the party behind the nomination of Jean-Claude Juncker as President of the European Commission. It has the support of some of Europe's most powerful leaders, including Angela Merkel, the German Chancellor.
Freudenstein, who recently co-authored a booklet published by the Martens Centre, The Renaissance of the West, regretted that with all of the awareness of the new Russian threat, Europe's readiness to go to war had not been properly discussed in public.
“That needs to change […] We have to make clear that yes, we are willing to go to war, for what we consider existential principles of Europe’s future,” he said.
Freudenstein further argued that the West should resume its deterrence, adding that the concept included nuclear deterrence.

RUBIO FAVORITE IN $HELDON $WEEP$TAKE$

Before Iowa and New Hampshire, GOP candidates are competing in the Sheldon Adelson primary, and some will travel to his posh Venetian hotel in Las Vegas this weekend in hopes of winning it. But one candidate — Marco Rubio — has emerged as the clear front-runner, according to nearly a half-dozen sources close to the multibillionaire casino mogul.

In recent weeks, Adelson, who spent $100 million on the 2012 campaign and could easily match that figure in 2016, has told friends that he views the Florida senator, whose hawkish defense views and unwavering support for Israel align with his own, as a fresh face who is “the future of the Republican Party.” He has also said that Rubio’s Cuban heritage and youth would give the party a strong opportunity to expand its brand and win the White House.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So elections, in this country, have come to this; it is no longer We the People who actually elect Presidents; it is the large corporations and front-men for Israel who buy candidates to fulfill their agendas, just as one would buy a side of beef.

And what is most depressing as to how this process has evolved, is the hard reality that the needs and concerns of working Americans are completely eclipsed by the needs and concerns of a foreign nation, and the huge corporations, which literally write most of the legislation under which the rest of us are forced to live.

Elections in the US are a Kabuki-like process, engineered to give the citizens of this country the illusion that they have some, even minor, control over their destinies when they absolutely do not.

And if you want a good look at how that works, take a look at what we know of the TPA:

Congress’ tax committees announced an agreement Thursday to speed through a bill to give President Barack Obama the fast-track authority that he will need to push mammoth new trade deals through Congress. While many believed a deal was in the works, news that it was actually done came as a surprise to members of both the House Ways and Means Committee and the Senate Finance Committee, which had been called to a hearing on the deal less than 12 hours earlier. The “trade promotion authority” bill, or TPA, would allow the White House to cut new trade deals with Asian and European nations, and then pass them through Congress using expedited procedures. Under these rules, the deals cannot be amended or obstructed, and they get a simple up-or-down vote.

Again, great for corporations, but generally lousy for We the People.

Any questions, folks?!?
