Without Release of Video, Police Shooting of White Driver Gets Less Publicity

To Zachary Hammond’s supporters, the shooting death of the 19-year-old man was yet another example of questionable police behavior that has shaken communities around the country.
In their view, the police in Seneca, S.C., falsely claimed Mr. Hammond was shot last month as he tried to drive his car over the officer who fired on him, when his wounds show he was actually shot from the side and back.

Syria - the rhetoric and the truth

For the last two weeks, the international Press has been full of rumours announcing the beginning of a US military operation against Syria. Thierry Meyssan, who has already denounced a manipulation by General John Allen and his friends, whose aim is to sabotage the USA/Iran agreements, revisists the absurdity of this charge. He explains why the strategic support offered by Russia and China to a secular Syria is not negotiable.

Hundreds of anti-fascists foil neo-Nazi march in Liverpool, several arrests made

Clashes erupted ahead of a planned “White Man March” called by a neo-Nazi group in Liverpool as anti-fascists countered the protest. Several arrests were made and the neo-Nazi march was canceled due to public outrage.

The neo-Nazi rally, organized by the National Action Group, which local media branded as the largest and the most visible action of its kind in the UK in decades, was to begin at 2 p.m. local time near Lime Street Station and end at Liverpool's Pier Head. It was apparently called off due to massive popular resentment.

Initially about 150 National Action Group supporters were expected to take part in the rally. About 150 neo-Nazis came to Liverpool, but faced hundreds of anti-fascists and outraged locals protesting against the march, as could be seen from images posted on social media.

Michele Bachmann’s creepy End Times fantasies: Why the religious right yearns for World War III

One of the creepiest aspects of contemporary American politics is the unholy alliance between the Christian right and Israel. It’s uncomfortable because the religious right’s affinity for Israel is tied to a rather disturbing fever dream: Israel’s destruction. Many evangelicals are utterly convinced that every addition to the sum of suffering in the Middle East is but a sign of the end times, of Christ’s return.

The GOP War Heats Up with Trump Scorching Fiorina in New Hampshire Speech

Trump responded directly to Fiorina’s criticism:

“Carly was a little nasty to me. Be careful, Carly. But I can’t say anything to her because she’s a woman, and I don’t wanna be accused of being tough on women. I can’t do that, right? …Am I allowed to fight back?

I promised I wouldn’t say that she ran Hewlett-Packard into the ground… that her stock value tanked, that she laid off tens of thousands of people, and she got viciously fired. I said I will not say that!”

IJReview reached out to Anna Epstein, Carly Fiorina’s Press Secretary, for comment. Epstein simply stated:

“We don’t have anything to add.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Fiorina seems to have the same attitude problem Megyn Kelly has, a belief that woman are allowed to attack men but that under Political Correctness men are supposed to just fall over and not fight back!

Good for Trump.

And he is right. Carly not only almost wrecked Hewlett-Packard, she almost wrecked companies using the products made by Hewlett-Packard during her tenure, including my animation shop, which I had built using HP equipment because of my previous experience in their high quality and reliability while Messrs. Hewlett and Packard still ran the place! To give you an idea of how bad it was, the HP CD-burners (made in Hungary) we were using to make deliverable disks lasted only about two weeks. After going through the hassle of getting them replaced several times (a long task here on Oahu), coupled with an HP computer that kept locking up due to a design flaw on the motherboard, we started phasing out all the HP equipment from the shop. Carly Fiorina might have been the role model for the charazcter Meridith Johnson in Michael Crichton's book, "Disclosure!"

Consumer groups have slammed Microsoft for its policy of forced updates for Windows 10, which is hitting customers in remote locations with massive bill shocks by blowing out their data caps.

But they warn bill shock may affect many more customers, regardless of where they are located. And, with many customers yet to receive their monthly internet bills, the full extent of the problem may not yet be apparent.

Maureen Hilyard, an internet user in the Cook Islands, an autonomous region associated with New Zealand, claims she faces a bill as much as $NZ600 ($A532) for the month of August, thanks to Windows 10 automatic updates.

Police Killing Their Own K9’s At An Alarming Rate

So far this year, 6 officers have killed their own K9’s by leaving them in vehicles with no air conditioning. One officer, as you’ll read below, somehow managed to forget about having TWO K9’s in his vehicle. According to the Officer Down Memorial Page, at least 37 K9’s have died of heat exhaustion since 2001. Here is a look at the K9’s that have died this year after their handlers left them to die a horrible, excruciating death. (Out of the 19 K9’s that died this year, 2 were killed by other animals, 1 died in a vehicle accident, 1 drowned, 2 died during a fire, 1 was poisoned, 1 struck by a vehicle, and 3 died from gunfire – a total of 8 died of heat exhaustion).

As Turkey Bombed Anti-ISIS Fighters, It Hired Lobbying Firm Tied to 2016 Candidates

On July 24, Turkey launched a massive military campaign that included sweeping attacks against Kurdish forces as well as minor strikes on Islamic State positions south of Turkey’s border. Just five days later, the Turkish government inked a contract to hire a team of prominent lobbyists to add to its already formidable army of influence-peddlers in Washington.

The contract, revealed Wednesday in a filing with the Justice Department, shows that the law and lobbying firm Squire Patton Boggs was retained on July 29 on a $32,000 a month retainer — as a subcontractor to Gephardt Government Affairs, acting for Turkey on its own 10-month, $1.7 million contract.

The Worst Thing Tricky Dick Ever Did: How Nixon and the British Destroyed the Best Monetary System the World Has Ever Had, Forty-Four Years Ago this Weekend

This weekend marks the forty-fourth anniversary of the deliberate destruction of the highly successful Bretton Woods System by Richard Nixon at Camp David, Maryland on August 15, 1971 – in many ways the worst thing Tricky Dick ever did. Since then, we have lived in the era of floating rates for currencies – a synonym for chaos, in which nobody knows what money will be worth a few weeks or months into the future. This has slowed the growth of world trade, which must be financed one, two, or three months ahead at minimum. The lack of fixed parities among the main world currencies has added crippling currency risk, providing a pretext for toxic derivatives as a way to deal with this risk. The euro crisis is also a spin-off of the Bretton Woods collapse, since a currency union is another way to remove currency risk. The Greek-centered euro crisis and recent competitive devaluations by Japan and China have once again focused world attention on the dangers of currency chaos.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

To be fair, Nixon's hand was forced because the Federal Reserve violated the original Bretton-Woods agreement by over-printing dollars well past the US' ability to redeem those dollars for gold at $35 per ounce.

The age of transition and scientism fraud

Ours is the great transition age. For the masses, the glowing assumption is that the transition and transformation age we are undergoing is the work of a long, evolutionary process of “natural” “progress.” Wandering about their bubbles, these presuppositions never go challenged or examined, having dobbed their cafeteria plate lives from a long string of newsbite phrases and empty slogans overheard in establishment schooling. “We are evolving,” and “We live in an era of change,” and numerous other advertising blurbs that underlie modernity’s plastic ideology actually form the basis for most of humanity’s worldview. Yet are any of these assumptions actually true? Are we in living in an era of “progress” and “human ascent”?

All in all, wines of three American wineries have been withdrawn from the market: Geyser Peak Winery (dry red merlot), Crane Lake Cellars (white sweet Crane Lake moscato), and Delicato Family Vineyards (white semidry Gnarly Head chardonnay).

The tests have established that these three wines contain phthalate and bifenazate insecticide in quantities exceeding the maximum permissible dose. The bifenazate pesticide is used in grape cultivation against plant-feeders.

The other chemical - phthalate - is considered a first-grade danger according to the toxicological index, which could cause functional and organic changes in human’s central and peripheral nervous systems, endocrine system, and cause cancer and infertility of both men and women.

‘Body-in-a-bag’ MI6 spy: Was he killed by secret service after uncovering money laundering?

Fresh revelations relating to his death surfaced Saturday, after a source told the Daily Mail that Scotland Yard officials believe an agent from another secret service broke into his apartment to conceal the evidence.

The new claim alleges that forensic equipment laid down in the flat after Williams’ body was discovered was moved while the building remained under the surveillance of armed police.

Special footplates, which enable detectives to make their way across a crime scene without causing contamination, were repositioned just over a day into the investigation.

After discovering this fact, Scotland Yard officials concluded the building’s walls had been scaled and Williams’ flat had been broken into via the skylight.

The “No Nuclear Bombs” Conspiracy theory

The idea that Hiroshima and Nagasaki were “firebombed” and that no nuclear weapons were used against them, because no such weapons even exist to his day, can be dismissed out of hand as arrant nonsense. Several of our best commenters, armed with historical facts, have pointed this out. Others, impervious to logic and factual information, persist in peddling the conspiracy theory that Hiroshima and Nagasaki were “firebombed” and that “no nuclear weapons” exist at all!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The people peddling the "no nukes" are impervious to facts and logic for the same reason as those who peddle the "no plane at the Pentagon" or "Apollo Moon Landings were faked" nonsense; they are paid propagandists pouring total junk onto the net to make the internet community look like a bunch of kooks in the hope that people will not pay attention when we tell them Saddam did not have nuclear weapons, that the ponzi-scheme central banking economy must self destruct, that TWA 800 was accidentally shot down by the US Navy, that Vincent Foster was murdered, etc.

DM: Iran Needs No Unconventional Weapons

"Today, we are facing transforming threats and our experts should identify these threats and equip themselves proportionate to these threats," Dehqan said, addressing a meeting at the defense ministry in Tehran on Monday.

Voicing the defense ministry's opposition to aggressive views, he said, "Our view is based on defense and deterrence in a way that the enemies don’t dare to act or if they act, we will make them regret their deeds and desist from repeating or continuing their actions."

"We consider one principle in all our plans which is people-reliant defense and therefore, we don’t need unconventional and atomic weapons while Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution (Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei) has also issued a fatwa (religious decree) against such weapons," Dehqan said.

General Dehqan had also warned on Saturday that threats against Iran were changing, but the country's armed forces enjoy the needed power and readiness to deter and defuse such threats.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Iranian Defense Minister says that Iran's doctrine is to defend Iran, and it's completely defensive, and Iran does not need other than conventional weapons to protect itself, and Iran is confident of repelling any attack on Iran...

Behind Israel’s Hysterical Opposition to the Iran Nuclear Deal

In light of the fact that Israel is in possession of at least 200 (surreptitiously-built) nuclear warheads, and considering the reality that, according to both US and Israeli intelligence sources, Iran neither possesses nor pursues nuclear weapons, the relentless hysterical campaign by Israel and its lobby against the Iran nuclear deal can safely be characterized as the mother of all ironies - a clear case of chutzpah ... There is well-documented, undeniable evidence that the lobby, as a major pillar of the neoconservative forces in the US and elsewhere, set out as early as the late 1980s and early as 1990s to "deconstruct" and reshape the Middle East in the image of radical Zionist champions of building "greater Israel" in the region, extending from Jordan River to Mediterranean coasts.

The nuclear deal reached in Vienna this month is not a ceiling but a solid foundation on which we must build. The joint comprehensive plan of action, as the accord is officially known, cements Iran's status as a zone free of nuclear weapons. Now it is high time that we expand that zone to encompass the entire Middle East ... Today, in light of the Vienna deal, it is high time that the nuclear "haves" remedied the gap by adopting serious disarmament measures and reinforcing the non-proliferation regime ... One step in the right direction would be to start negotiations for a weapons elimination treaty, backed by a robust monitoring and compliance-verification mechanism ...

Israeli Historians Expose Myth of Israel's Birth

Because the myth of Israel's birth was so closely linked to the horrors of the Holocaust, to question its truth was for years as unthinkable as doubting the truth of the Holocaust itself. But today a new breed of historians is challenging much of that myth. Palestinian and other Arab scholars, Western Middle East specialists, and non-Zionist Jews such as Elmer Berger, Alfred Lilienthal, and Norman Finkelstein have already published well-documented refutations of the official version of Israel's history. The current debunking process, however, is being carried out for the first time by Israeli Jews a younger generation of historians with impeccable credentials as Zionists, patriotic Israelis and scholars.

Goldstein murdered 29 people outright, and wounded 125 before the survivors managed to disarm and kill him on the spot.

OBAMA-APPOINTED JUDGE GIVES POTENTIALLY BREAKTHROUGH RULING GIVING DRUG COMPANIES THE RIGHT TO MARKET DRUGS FOR USES NOT APPROVED BY FDA

A federal court has given a drug company preliminary approval to market a drug for a condition not approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

Amarin Pharma’s drug Vascepa is approved for use in treating extremely high levels—over 500 milligrams per deciliter—of fats known as triglycerides, in the blood. Amarin also wanted to promote the drug for use in patients with “persistently high levels,” from 200 to 499, of triglycerides. The FDA denied approval for that use earlier this year, concerned that Vascepa wouldn’t help such patients avoid heart disease or heart attacks. Amarin then went to court, claiming its First Amendment rights allowed it to give information to physicians.

Labour MP Stuart Nash has dismissed criticism of him by senior minister Steven Joyce for marching and speaking at an anti-TPP rally in Napier, one of more than 20 protests across the country that attracted 25,000 people by organisers' counts.

Mr Nash was one of at least six Labour MPs who took part in nationwide marches on Saturday, as was Labour's trade spokesman, David Parker, who spoke at the Dunedin rally. Others were Phil Twyford, Ruth Dyson, Megan Woods, and Clare Curran, while Jacinda Ardern apologised for her absence.

Mr Joyce, the Economic Development Minister, said Labour tried to suggest it was generally in favour of TPP and trade deals as a way of backing regional New Zealand but then attended anti-TPP rallies, including in Hawkes Bay.

Neocons to Americans: Trust Us Again

Marching in lockstep with Israeli hardliners, American neocons are aiming their heavy media artillery at the Iran nuclear deal as a necessary first step toward another “regime change” war in the Mideast – and they are furious when anyone mentions the Iraq War disaster and the deceptions that surrounded it.

America’s neocons insist that their only mistake was falling for some false intelligence about Iraq’s WMD and that they shouldn’t be stripped of their powerful positions of influence for just one little boo-boo. That’s the point of view taken by Washington Post editorial page editor Fred Hiatt as he whines about the unfairness of applying “a single-interest litmus test,” i.e., the Iraq War debacle, to judge him and his fellow war boosters.

US Torturers Lose Psychologists' Corrupt Cooperation

American psychologists have voted overwhelmingly against helping their government torture people. In an even more radical step, the psychologists voted to obey international law, even in instances where US law tolerates war crimes or crimes against humanity.

That would be really good news if there weren’t a huge exception: the psychologists also voted that it would be all right for them to take part in “constitutional” interrogations by federal, state, and local law enforcement in the US. Given the ragged history of US law enforcement, this is a loophole that could at any moment become another noose.

Why Israel Is So Concerned About Jeremy Corbyn

Disinformation and propaganda can take the form of omission just as much as straight forward lies and deception. There is no doubt that that all political parties, one way or another, in the past have been staunch supporters of Israel’s illegal actions over Palestine and its people, more particularly, in the offensive of Gaza starting July 2014. British government complicity that enables impunity of Israeli war criminals also profits from the death, destruction and apartheid regime imposed.

One of the world's most dangerous volcanoes erupts in Ecuador as state of emergency is declared and hundreds are evacuated

Cotopaxi is considered one of the world's most dangerous volcanoes due to a glacial cover that makes it prone to fast-moving volcanic rock and mud flows, known as lahares.

The formidable 19,600-foot snow-capped volcano also is close to the heavily populated area around Quito but it has not significantly erupted since 1877.

Ritalin use soars as prescriptions reach 1m a year: Fears that children don't really need drug after use doubles in a decade

Prescriptions for Ritalin have more than doubled in a decade amid fears that children are being wrongly given the drug.

Almost a million were handed out last year, but experts are concerned the rise is being driven by doctors misdiagnosing youngsters with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD.

Hackers can access EVERY call and message you send: The moment computer expert shows just how easy it is for them to eavesdrop on your smartphone

Hackers are able to spy on smartphone users anywhere in the world.

In one of the biggest threat to privacy breaches the world has ever seen, Australians may have their names, addresses, bank account details and medical data stolen due to a security vulnerability.

Channel Nine's 60 Minutes has uncovered a security hole in modern telecommunications that enables cyber criminals to listen in on phone conversations and read text messages.

The program reveals just how easy it is for German hackers, who are based in Berlin, to be able to intercept, steal data and geo-track someone's location by using a signalling system, known as SS7.

Criminals, commercial spies and suspected terrorists are allegedly exploiting the security loophole for their own benefit by accessing the system, which is being used by major Australian providers.

HOLLYWOOD EXECUTIVE - BUSTED

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I got to see a lot of this crap close-up during my thirty years in the film industry.

One huge scandal Hollywood hopes you have forgotten was when David Begelman forged actor Cliff Robertson's name on checks in order to cash them and pocket the money. When the IRS went after Robertson for unpaid taxes on the money, Robertson blew the whistle on Begelman. Needless to say, Robertson's career evaporated, while the top studio heads united in defending Begelman. Columbia Pictures CEO Alan Hirschfield was ousted from the studio in 1978 for refusing to give Begelman back his old job! The reason all these top studio executives were so protective of Begelman was out of fear that their own embezzlement would be exposed by the exploding scandal.

One production I worked on at FOX was used to launder tens of thousands of dollars for the head of production. I recall it clearly when this guy, looking like some mafia Don, calmly informed out producer that their budget had to grow by $25,000. Of course, the money was headed for that executive's pocket, with the producer left to take the heat for going over-budget. Had the producer not complied, the executive was going to pull the plug and shut down the project cold. On another occasion, I was hired to help audit Ray Stark's books when Columbia bought his production company, and it was amazing what Stark had spent studio money on (including professional sex services) and charged it off as a "production expense."

Fox: Megyn Kelly vacation not prompted by Trump, idea is ‘up there with UFOs’

Following the announcement that Fox news anchor, and GOP debate moderator Megyn Kelly would be taking a ten day vacation earlier this week, rumors spread that her trip was prompted by her ongoing spat with 2016 GOP candidate Donald Trump.

In a statement Friday night, a spokesperson from Fox said those rumors were absurd, ranking “up there with UFO’s, the moon landing and Elvis being alive.”

Hillary's emails WERE backed up to another server – and it may still exist – as the FBI works to figure out how well the data was scrubbed

Tens of thousands of emails once housed on former secretary of state Hillary Clinton's private computer server were moved to another device after a Colorado company took possession of the device in 2013, leaving open the possibility that copies of messages Clinton later chose to delete might still exist.

The FBI seized the server this week in a stunning move, signaling a new intensity in the investigation into whether Clinton knowingly send or received top-secret classified information through her private address while she was America's top diplomat.

Bloomberg reported Thursday night that Barbara Wells, an attorney for Platte River Networks, Inc., confirmed that while the server hardware now controlled by the FBI 'is blank and does not contain any useful data,' its contents could still be safe and sound elsewhere.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The mere fact that Hillary's people blanked the disk shows an intention to destroy evidence.

Police Hit Organic Farm with Massive SWAT Raid for No Reason, Taxpayers to be Held Liable

In an effort to protect the citizens of Texas, a massive military-style raid was conducted on the Garden of Eden organic farm and commune. On August 2, 2103, nearly two dozen heavily armed SWAT officers stormed this peaceful farm in search of a plant. They found lots of plants, but much to their dismay, they did not find the plant they were looking for. Countless tax dollars and months of half-cocked planning went down the drain that day after it was discovered that police incompetence had led these troops into a battle to which there can be no victor.

I'll deport ALL illegal immigrants, help pay for a border wall by taxing Mexican visitors to the US, then send troops to fight ISIS and demand money from our Middle Eastern allies, says Trump: The Donald unveils first policies

Donald Trump today took to national TV to unveil his immigration strategy and offer more substantive answers about what policies he would pursue as president.

Trump said on Meet The Press that he would end birthright citizenship and deport every single one of the country's estimated 11million illegal immigrants while rescinding any executive orders Barack Obama put in place to protect them.

In a wide-ranging interview with NBC's Chuck Todd, the presidential candidate explained his views on a number of topics including the Iran nuclear deal, Middle East policy, abortion and Hillary Clinton.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Agree with all of those, although Trump will hit a major stumble when he finds out ISIS actually works for the US government!

The #1 Reason Why Donald Trump Is What America Needs (And Deserves)

Just a few weeks ago, US talk show host Stephen Colbert was asked if he thought that Donald Trump had a chance of becoming President of the United States.

Colbert responded sincerely. “Honestly, he could. And that’s not an opinion of Trump. That’s my opinion of our nation.”

He’s right. The Land of the Free may very well be ready for something completely different. And Trump certainly seems able to deliver.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Trump is not perfect. But he is not part of the political establishment that has ruined this nation over the last half-century, and for most Americans, this one included, that is good enough!

Yet these same racist attitudes are suddenly tolerated when they are directed toward Iranians.

Siri "Butt Dial" Saves Murfreesboro Man's Life After Truck Falls on Him

iPhone users know "Siri" can do plenty of things at the touch of a button. Add saving a life to the list.

18-year-old Sam Ray was working under his truck on July 2nd when the jack gave way, sending the nearly 5,000 pound truck crashing down on top on him. With his arms trapped, Ray yelled for help, but nobody was able to hear him.

That's when he heard the familiar Siri activation coming from his phone that was in his back pocket. Realizing it was a chance for help, the man was able to "push up on his hip" to activate Siri and requested a 911 call. He finally heard dispatchers on the line and received the help he needed.

Best Summer Camp Ever! Shoot AK47s, Learn to Hate and Kill From Real Live Nazis!

A group belonging to the Ukranian Azovets summer camp on the Vkontakte social network has posted dozens of photos of children learning to shoot AK-47 rifles. The camp is supposedly connected to the Azov battalion, slammed as ‘neo-Nazi’ by the US Congress.
The Azovets summer camp outside Kiev accepts kids from six years of age, operating under the moto: “the idea is in the nation, the strength is in you,”according to the camp’s page on the VKontakte social network.
Azovets doesn’t have an official web page, but actively promotes itself on social media, including on Facebook and Twitter accounts belonging to the Azov battalion.

Climate Change: Have We Reached the Point of No Return?

Dahr Jamail and Guy McPherson says according to many new studies and modelling, reversing climate change is a pipe dream, brace for impact and human extinction.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There never was a possibility of stopping climate change, because climate is dominated by solar output and the changing shape of Earth's orbit, factors beyond the ability of the acolytes of the church of Saint Al of the Gore to influence. Virtually every climate scientist not on the payroll of the carbon credit/carbon tax scammers has concluded that the sun is headed into another "Maunder Minimum" and with it, a little ice age. Claims from government that they can halt climate change if you but give them your money and obedience are about as real as Caligula declaring war on the ocean and ordering his soldiers to stab the water with their spears and "steal" the sea shells!

That being said, I would not sound the trumpet of doom just yet, as humans did survive the last great ice age.

TOP EXECUTIVE AT HILLARY'S SERVER COMPANY WAS SUED FOR 'FRAUD' AFTER 'RECEIVING PROCEEDS' FROM $500M PONZI SCHEME RUN BY BACKSTREET BOYS IMPRESARIO

A top executive at the Internet company hired by Hillary Clinton to manage her private email server is an alleged fraudster who was an executive for one of the most notorious Ponzi fraudsters in recent history.

David DeCamillis is said to have been paid $1.5 million as a director of a company run by Lou Pearlman, the disgraced music impresario who discovered The Backstreet Boys and NSync.

DeCamillis was accused of 14 counts of fraud and one count of unjust enrichment when Pearlman’s business was exposed as a $500 million scam.

DeCamillis then got a job at Denver, Colorado, based Platte River Networks as their vice president of sales and marketing whilst Pearlman began serving a 25 year jail term.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This guy was obviously more crooked than a dog's hind leg.

And that brings to mind two questions; how could Hillary, or her staff, NOT have done the "due diligence" to recognise how crooked this guy was, or did they know, and feel he would be "perfect" as the manager for Hillary's email accounts?!?

Either way, having to ask these questions of a woman running for President is troubling, indeed.

Both Hitler and the founders of Planned Parenthood advocate birth control, sterilization, and segregation in concentration camps for the "unfit."
