‘We are being CRUCIFIED!’ Freedom of movement will DESTROY EU, warns top Czech diplomat

FREEDOM of movement could cause the break-up of the European Union (EU), the Czech Republic’s Foreign Minister warned today.

Lubomir Zaoralek said Brexit showed Europeans were tiring of unchecked migration - with the very existence of the bloc now at stake.

He said his country had long respected freedom of movement as one of the European Union’s fundamental freedoms but warned the union itself may not survive because of it.

And the diplomat flatly rejected calls for all EU states to accept some of the more than one million migrants who have arrived in the EU from outside the bloc in recent years.

Minister told to remind Germany of cancelled WW2 debt amid EU demand for £50bn Brexit fee

Sir Bill, speaking as chair of the House of Commons’ European Scrutiny Committee, urged Mr Jones to consider how Britain has been a “net contributor for many decades” to the EU budget and so “our accumulated liabilities are offset by the extent to which we've made these massive contributions”.

He added: “Perhaps also to bear in mind that back in 1953 there was a thing called the London Debt Agreement, where Germany - for all its malfeasance during the Second World War and its unprovoked aggression - found that in 1953, in circumstances which were quite remarkable, that we remitted one half of all German debt.

“Therefore if you compare that situation with what it is now and given Germany's extremely dominant role in the EU at the moment it might be worth tactfully - not one of my strongest points - but tactfully reminding people that there is a realistic position here that we really don't owe anything to the EU whether it's legal or political.”

NY Times Contributor: Whiteness Must be "Abolished"

Myles E. Johnson, who the New York Times lists as a "contributing writer" and children's-book author, argued last week that whiteness must be "abolished" because it is inherently "greedy" and "can't create anything on its own."

This, as well as other racially-charged comments, were written publicly by Johnson last week.

"Whiteness is greedy," Johnson wrote on the 16th, "and it even arrives in language. White people's use of the N-word is to show there is no place they can't arrive."

Mike Cernovich: Twitter — Either Go Private and be a Super PAC or Tell Shareholders the Truth about Shadow Bans

Summary?—?Twitter is shadow banning high profile accounts, generally populist accounts. Twitter has every right to “censor,” of course, with an exception. It is shareholder fraud to censor popular accounts, as this harms company growth. Jack Dorsey must take Twitter private or else tell his shareholders the truth?—?Twitter censors accounts that are critical of Hillary Clinton. (Even Bernie Sanders supporters have been shadow banned.)

Twitter is a publicly-traded corporation and thus its CEO Jack Dorsey has fiduciary obligations to his shareholders. Twitter is not Jack’s private little Super PAC. If Jack wants to censor influential and popular users, then he must disclose this to shareholders. He must tell them the truth, “I don’t care about shareholder value. I want to run Twitter like my personal blog and Super PAC.”

FLASHBACK - MAJESTIC MEMORIES

The government may declare victory in wars started in foreign lands, but for the people who live in small towns in this land the results are barely distinguishable from defeat. Lives are lost, families destroyed, futures shattered, hopes ruined; all this is the price paid by the people for the "foreign entanglements" we were long ago warned to avoid. The real price of war is paid not just by those who died in it, but by those who are left behind who bury their dead and pay the bills.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I relinked this because "The Majestic" was on TV last night and I got to introduce one of our friends to the film, which she had never seen.

Watching Jim Carey's speech before Congress again, it occurred to me that the sentiment expressed regarding the soldiers of WW2 applies not only to the soldiers of today but to We The People.

Jim Carey's character in the film, Peter Appleton, points out that Luke Trimball and every other soldier who died in the war did so to protect the nation described in the Constitution of the United States. The very least those men were owed, the very least those who survived deserved, was that very nation.

The same holds true today. The US Government that has grown rich and powerful on the strength of our arms and the strain of our backs (then sneers at us because our sweat stinks) in the name of the nation described and defined in the Constitution owes us that very nation down to its tiniest details.

That is what we deserve. It is what we wanted. It was what was bought and paid for by all the soldiers who ever fought in the wars they were told were to preserve and protect that nation.

The US Government has cheated them, cheated us all, of our birthright.

Home About Antiwar.com Donate Blog US Casualties Contact Latest NewsIsrael Continues to Attack Syria, Warns Syria Against Resisting Planes

Tensions continue to rise along the Golan Heights frontier, as Israeli warplanes continued to carried out airstrikes against Syrian soil over the weekend, killing a commander in a pro-Syrian militia, and issuing statements warning Syria not to resist the strikes in the future.

Israel responded with shock after Friday’s attacks against Syria saw the Syrian government fire anti-aircraft missiles against the attacking warplanes. Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman has warned that if Syria attempts to fire on any attacking airplanes in the future Israel will destroy their air defense systems “without the slightest hesitation.”

Throughout the six years of Syria’s war, Israel has launched regular attacks against Syrian military targets, and this is the first time Syria has tried to chase Israeli warplanes out of their airspace. They succeeded, though Israel touted their use of an anti-missile system to shoot down one of the anti-aircraft missiles.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

OK, please let me get my head around this: Israel has attacked a sovereign nation, against which it has not declared war, and screams to the Syrian government not to attempt to shoot the Israeli planes down when they are bombing Syria?!?

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, a word, please: when you bomb a sovereign nation, that nation absolutely has the right to shoot back, perhaps even to the point of taking down that aircraft. At this point, the Syrian military is well integrated with that of the Russian forces, placed there by invitation of the Al-Assad government, so if the IDF goes in and targets more places in Syria, you may well hit Russian defensive capabilities as well, potentially risking war against Russia.

THE GLOBAL FAMINE BEGINS: UN ANNOUNCES THAT THE WORST FOOD CRISIS SINCE WORLD WAR II IS HAPPENING RIGHT NOW

We always knew that this would start happening. Earlier this month, I wrote about the severe economic problems that are plaguing South America, but up to this point I have neglected to discuss the horrific famines that are breaking out all over Africa. Right now there is a desperate need for food in South Sudan, Somalia, northeast Nigeria, Eritrea and Kenya. And Yemen, even though it is not technically part of Africa, is being affected by many of the same factors that are crippling nations all over eastern Africa. The United Nations says that more than 20 million people could die from starvation and disease if nothing is done. When I write about economic collapse, this is the kind of thing that I am talking about, and we are starting to see alarming conditions spread across the globe. Many believe that we could never possibly face this kind of food crisis in the western world, but unfortunately wishful thinking will only get you so far.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder just how much of this famine is from natural causes, and how much is man-made, through these horrific wars affecting not only Yemen, but also many countries in Africa as well.

War is a great method for depopulation, if governmental leaders have the morals of a dead tree stump. (And you KNOW I will get massive complaints from dead tree stumps on that one!!)

JOHN MCCAIN - THE RISE AND FALL OF AN AMERICAN 'HERO'

As of late, we the people of Arizona are very shocked to see what he has become. He is a caricature of a man who, around here, is about as popular as the ping-pong president. How could the people of Arizona, the state that brought you the O.K. Corral, the Grand Canyon, constitutional carry, and sunshine 360 days a year re-elect such a steaming lumpen pile?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It is profoundly unfortunate that there is no equivalent for (alleged) Congressional Representatives of the 25th Amendment, when they start working against the true interests of We the People, as has Senator Mc Cain for some time now.

I have speculated, on many an occasion, about whether all the stocks he holds are military/industrial complex-centric; at this moment, I would not bet against it.

It is also a shame that Congressional Representatives are not required to put their finances into a blind trust, as does the President.

CONFIRMED: FISA’S SECTION 702 PERMITS “WARRANTLESS” SPYING ON AMERICANS’ COMMUNICATIONS

Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) has come under scrutiny as it is set to expire this year on Dec. 31. The deadline of the contentious section which came into law in 2008 and was renewed in 2012, has impelled lawmakers to review its necessity.

Section 702 of the FISA arguably allows the NSA and other agencies to exploit loopholes to intercept Americans’ communications while collecting information on foreign targets. Depending on who you speak with, this is an infringement on Americans’ privacy under the Fourth Amendment, or it’s vital to national security.

Rep. Bob Goodlatte, who opened the recent meeting over Section 702’s future began by outlining it as “an important safeguard.” He continued however, saying that “We must ensure that our protection doesn’t come at the expense of cherished liberty.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The problems here are threefold; first, this violates the 4th Amendment to protect Americans from unreasonable search and seizure; second, there is so much data gleaned through this process as to make the bits and peaces of info almost useless; and third, the baddies have already gotten encryption down to a point where their communications cannot be broken into.

The Crimes Of Apartheid

Apartheid is a powerful word, with evocations of the South African experience and with implications of crimes against humanity. The United Nations does not use this word loosely. It rarely enters UN reports, and is not heard from the lips of UN officials. But now, in a report released on March 15 in Beirut, Lebanon, the UN has proclaimed that Israel ‘is guilty of the crime of apartheid’. This is a very significant judgment, one with important ramifications for the UN, for the International Court of Justice and for the international community.

D.C. DAIRY LOBBYING ORGANIZATIONS TRYING TO KILL BILL TO LEGALIZE RAW MILK IN MONTANA

Deep-pocketed national organizations representing big dairy have thrown their political clout behind efforts to kill a bill that would legalize limited raw milk sales in Montana

Last week, the National Milk Producers Federation and the International Dairy Foods Association sent a 26-page document to members of the Senate Agriculture, Livestock and Irrigation Committee urging them to kill House Bill 325 (HB325).

“Due to the significant public health risks associated with the consumption of raw milk, the National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF) and the International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA) respectfully urge that you oppose HB 325, legislation designed to allow the sale of unpasteurized milk in Montana. HB 325 would remove existing regulations prohibiting the direct sale of raw milk, consumption of which has been opposed by every major health organization in the United States, including the American Medical Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics.”

EUROZONE TURMOIL: Spain, Italy and Greece owe massive debt of €1 TRILLION to ECB

EURO states owe the European Central Bank (ECB) a staggering €1trillion as they teeter on the verge of bankruptcy amid warnings a debt bubble is on the horizon.

Analysts condemned the "flawed economics of this reckless [EU] experiment" and said the ECB faces a rude awakening as states crumble under the burden of debt.

Market conditions in Eurozone are showing signs of a return to the conditions that sparked the 2011 European debt crisis which first reared its head in 2009.

The ECB uses a system called Target2 to assess levels of debt and the bank's data appears to show it is only a matter of time before the current system breaks.

At the time several eurozone member states including Greece, Portugal, Ireland, Spain and Cyprus were unable to repay or refinance their government debt.

They were bailed out through assistance of third parties including Eurozone countries, the ECB, and the International Monetary Fund.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is going to get very economically ugly, and very quickly.

ISRAEL: AMERICA’S MAD DOG IN SYRIA

Israel has played an increasingly provocative role in the destructive conflict unfolding within and along Syria’s borders since 2011. To many observers, it appears Israeli policy borders between opportunistic and unilateral aggression. In reality, Israel’s role in the Syrian conflict fits a much larger and long-term pattern with Anglo-American plans not only for Syria but for the entire region.

A more recent row between Israel and Syria was the reported incursion of Israeli warplanes into Syrian airspace, including attacks near the eastern Syrian city of Palmyra. Palmyra hosts an ongoing battle between Syrian forces and the self-proclaimed “Islamic State” (ISIS) terrorist organization. Israeli airstrikes against Syrian forces – then – would have facilitated ISIS operations in the region.

ISRAEL IS A STATE SPONSOR OF TERROR, NOT A CHAMPION AGAINST IT

Webmaster's Commentary: 

From its very inception, Israel has been a rogue nation, driven by its own mythology of achieving its territorial claims to all the lands between the Nile and the Euphrates (Biblical Israel)

Let's look at a map, to see what those claims actually entail;

Biblical Israel, from the Nile to the Euphrates

As you can see, this alleged "promised land" includes bits of Iraq; Egypt; Syria; Saudi Arabia, Jordan; and Lebanon.

The reason that the Israeli government refuses to define its borders is that its religious right believes that those borders extend into these countries, the governments of which should just roll over and play dead, enabling the IDF to claim bits of these countries for "eretz Israel" (Greater Israel)

The problem for the Israeli government is that this rolling over and playing dead, to enable this annexation, just hasn't happened yet. And because of that, in the minds of those in the Knesset in Tel Aviv, that makes Syria a prime target for destabilization and regime change.

THE CIA’S 60-YEAR HISTORY OF FAKE NEWS: HOW THE DEEP STATE CORRUPTED MANY AMERICAN WRITERS

In this week’s episode of “Scheer Intelligence,” Truthdig Editor in Chief Robert Scheer interviews Joel Whitney, author and co-founder of Guernica magazine.

Whitney’s new book, “Finks: How the C.I.A. Tricked the World’s Best Writers,” explores how the CIA influenced acclaimed writers and publications during the Cold War to produce subtly anti-communist material. During the interview, Scheer and Whitney discuss these manipulations and how the CIA controlled major news agencies and respected literary publications (such as the Paris Review).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The CIA has been bending the narrative to fit the American Deep State's agenda for years, no matter how badly the American people had to suffer for it, particularly in terms of wars the US government has fought - and continues to fight- to ultimately upgrade private corporate profits.

Tammy Baldwin Paid Clinton Lawyer $90K For Crisis Control After VA Scandal

Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D., Wis.) paid Hillary Clinton's campaign lawyer $90,000 for crisis control following a Veteran Affairs facility scandal that engulfed the senator and her staff.

Baldwin, who was first elected to the Senate in 2012, was the only member of Congress from Wisconsin to receive an official federal government inspector general report warning of the over-prescription of narcotics given to veterans at the Tomah VA facility in her state. The abuses at the facility ultimately led to the death of a Marine.

A memo was first circulated in 2009 warning of the dangerous amounts of narcotics prescribed to veterans at the Tomah VA facility by Dr. David Houlihan, the Tomah VA chief of staff.

Workers at the facility were hesitant to speak out against Dr. Houlihan, who earned the nickname "the candy man" from his prescriptions, due to fear of losing their jobs.

Trump Administration Rolls Back Obama Protections On Student Loans

Just days after reports emerged that student loan defaults are soaring, which is undoubtedly due to some combination of, among other things, poor job prospects for the millions of snowflakes who graduate each year with their $200,000 educations in anthropology and the moral hazard created by liberal politicians constantly calling for student debts to be 'forgiven' (a.k.a. forcefully jammed down the throats of taxpayers), the Trump administration has revoked rules put in place by Obama that barred student debt collectors from charging penalty fees on past-due loans.

Hedge Fund CIO: "The Odds Of Trump Succeeding Are Zero In The Absence Of A New War"

Peel back the patina and you’ll discover that today’s monetary policy, tax policy, foreign policy, trade policy, and regulations of every stripe are levers the elite pull to entrench their interests. Secular stagnation is what we came to call the symptom without identifying this cause. Then came a synchronized global cyclical recovery, which we may now confuse as a Trump inspired break from this stranglehold.

“If I thought our new president could increase budget deficits by another 2% per year, my thesis would crumble. I’d be wrong. But the odds of this are zero in the absence of starting a new war.” He paused, considering the rebound in interest rates, the record equity highs.

Massive labor strike planned for May 1

Hundreds of thousands of service workers will strike on May 1, seizing on the wave of opposition among labor organizations to President Trump, BuzzFeed News reported Saturday.

May 1, International Workers' Day, is traditionally a magnet for labor demonstrations. More than 300,000 food chain employees and 40,000 service workers are expected to participate in the massive strike.

Among the most notable groups participating in the protest are the Service Employees International Union United Service Workers West, led by David Huerta, who said that tens of thousands of his chapter’s members will walk off the job.

“We understand that there’s risk involved in that, but we’re willing to take that risk in order to be able to move forward in this moment, while the most marginalized are in the crosshairs of this administration,” Huerta told BuzzFeed.

Which "War Torn" Country? - U.S. Slaughter In Somalia, Yemen And Syria

It is a sad world when has to ponder such.

Change orders totaling $15 million approved for rail

Under earlier plans rail was supposed to have started running from East Kapolei to Aloha Stadium in September 2016, but that interim opening has now been pushed to July 2020, according to the Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transit.

The full 20-mile route’s opening has been pushed to December 2025, but rail’s independent overseers have recently questioned whether that target is realistic.

More than $6 million will go to Kiewit Infrastructure West, as the firm building the system’s first 10 miles continues to make revisions to its columns and elevated guideway so it will support the load of the rail stations.

FLASHBACK - Comey Oversaw Drug Cartel Money Laundering Operations as a Top Executive at HSBC Bank

Before becoming the director of the FBI, Director Comey, worked at the criminal bank of HSBC which laundered drug cartel and terrorist drug money in the worst banking scandal in US history.

My best insider source states that FBI Director James Comey has absolutely no law enforcement background, and is not qualified to run the FBI. To add insult to injury, the FBI Director held an executive position at HSBC Bank, while extreme money laundering operations where being carried out by the Mexican Drug Cartel and their terrorist allies with the direct assistance of HSBC banking officials. I asked my source if Comey would have known, and he replied “he would have to have been drunk 24/7 to not know what was going on”.

President Trump Set to Sign Bill Allowing States to Drug Test Welfare Recipients

While liberals continue to deny its existence, most Americans are keenly aware that welfare fraud is a real problem that needs to be destroyed.

For years, Republicans in Congress have tried to crack down on welfare abuse, hoping to give states the power to ensure that those receiving welfare benefits are truly deserving of such assistance. Democrats, of course, have fought any and all attempts at accountability.

But now, Congress has just taken a major step in their welfare reform agenda, voting to allow states to drug test individuals seeking unemployment benefits. President Trump is expected to sign the legislation in the coming days.

IS THE MOON THE ONLY SAFE PLACE FROM THE ISRAEL LOBBY?

If the “Jewish State” calls itself the “only democracy in the Middle East,” then we have to strongly oppose it. How can the Israeli state, which is neither Judaic nor democratic, call itself “democratic”? Readers will certainly ask themselves why I always write “Jewish State” instead of “Israel”: Since this Zionist land grabbing state would like to be recognised as “Jewish State” instead of a state for all citizens, including Palestinians. And this is a completely anti-democratic intention!

She was a peace activist connected to the International Solidarity Movement (ISM), who tried to prevent the demolition of Palestinian houses which were being carried out by the Israeli army.

After a three hour long confrontation between ISM activists and the Israeli army’s demolition forces, she was killed, less than two months after arriving in Gaza.

'Sell to them or you will lose your job': Call centre employees for big banks reveal upsell pressures

In emails to Go Public, past and present call centre employees for TD, RBC, BMO and CIBC (none from Scotiabank) said they're expected to use the same high-pressure sales tactics as those their branch colleagues recently revealed to CBC News — and face the same threat of being fired if they fail to consistently upsell customers.

THE UNHOLY ALLIANCE AGAINST AMERICAN FREEDOM

“The Democrats, the liberal media and juvenile snowflakes are bad losers and they’re making themselves look ridiculous by continuing to refuse to accept that Donald Trump is their President, and looks set to be so for eight glorious years as he Makes America Great Again”. That is the view of many millions of American patriots and conservatives – and, sadly, it is terribly wrong.

The reality is that Donald Trump, American democracy, and the survival of the Christian world as a whole, are in grave and growing danger. This is because the ‘War on Trump’ is not the futile and ridiculous lost cause that many on the right naively believe. Rather, what we have seen so far are just the opening shots and manoeuvres in a well-planned coup d’etat, which is being prepared by sinister forces with enormous experience of ‘regime change’ all over the world.

Mainstream Media in Total Collapse — Paul Craig Roberts

Few any longer believe the “mainstream media,” that is, the presstitutes. This has put them into a panic as the presstitutes lose their value to the ruling elite if the presstitutes cannot control the explanations in order to justify the self-serving agendas of the ruling elite.

To fight back against the alternative media that does tell the truth, a secret group, PropOrNot, as well hidden as an offshore money-laundering operation, published a list of 200 websites accused of being “Russian agents/dupes.”

PropOrNot’s effort to discredit truth-tellers was hurt by the site’s anonymity.

Consequently, the next list appeared on the website of the Harvard University library, where it is attributed to a Melissa Zimdars of whom no one has ever previously heard. The websites on the list are also on the PropOrNot list, but those of us on Zimbars’ list are no longer “Russian agents/dupes,” merely purveyors of “fake news.”
