Israeli Weimar: It Can Happen Here

“Please don’t write about Ya’ir Golan!” a friend begged me, “Anything a leftist like you writes will only harm him!”

So I abstained for some weeks. But I can’t keep quiet any longer.

General Ya’ir Golan, the deputy Chief of Staff of the Israeli army, made a speech on Holocaust Memorial Day. Wearing his uniform, he read a prepared, well-considered text that triggered an uproar which has not yet died down.

Dr. Scapegoat, I Presume

The war on human beings who use, sell or possess drugs (private property), is, from the perspective of reason or morality, dead. Yet, it survives in political backwaters such as Buffalo and in the intellectual backwater of progressivism. The drug war is the classic progressive policy failure. The progressives invented it. They defend it. They sustain it and they prosecute it while often blaming Republicans for it.

Standing Up To Multinational Big-Ag: Nepal, Monsanto, and USAID

By Tony Cartalucci

Throughout history, controlling India was the key to controlling Nepal. British control over the landlocked nation was an extension of its control over India itself. Today, imperialism is far from a distant memory. It did not go “extinct,” rather, it merely “evolved.” Today, imperialism looks like national and international “aid programs” which are used as fronts and vectors for corporate special interests...

EgyptAir crash: Body parts retrieved from flight MS804 crash site 'point to an explosion on board aircraft'

A forensics official has said human remains retrieved from the area where EgyptAir Flight 804 crashed point to an explosion on board.

The anonymous official is part of Egypt's investigative team and has examined victim's remains at a morgue in Cairo.

He told the Associated Press that all 80 body parts received so far are small and that “there isn't even a whole body part, like an arm or a head", adding: “The logical explanation is that an explosion brought it down...but I cannot say what caused the blast."

Egypt's al-Watan newspaper quoted another unnamed forensics official saying the plane blew up in mid-air, leaving remains “no larger than the size of a hand”, but that it has yet to be determined whether an explosive device was to blame.

The head of Egypt's forensics authority denied there was evidence of an explosion later on Tuesday.

The Rise of the Meta-Criminal; Is the NSA Manipulating the Stock Market?

By Jon Rappoport

Trevor Timm of the Electronic Freedom Frontier dug up a very interesting nugget. It was embedded in the heralded December 2013 White House task force report on spying and snooping.

Under Recommendations, #31, section 2, he found this:

“Governments should not use their offensive cyber capabilities to change the amounts held in financial accounts or otherwise manipulate financial systems.”

Timm quite rightly wondered: why were these warnings in the report?...

Microsoft has faced criticism for changing the pop-up box encouraging Windows users to upgrade to Windows 10.

Solitary Confinement Is Used To Break People — I Know Because I Endured It

Solitary confinement. Administrative segregation. Administrative detention. Restrictive housing. Temporary confinement. Protective custody. Appropriate placement. There are many names for solitary confinement. In the Illinois prisons where I was incarcerated, it was called “segregation,” but most of the women called it “seg” or “jail.” No matter the language, it is all solitary — and it is torture.

Apology To Japan Would Mean US Admits Past Crimes: Analyst

The United States will not apologize to Japan over its 1945 atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki because such an apology would mean an acknowledgment of Washington’s past crimes, says an analyst.

Keith Preston made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Monday when asked about President Barack Obama who has said Washington is not sorry for what it did to Japan in 1945.
