Over the past few years many in the alternative media have pinned their hopes for a revival in America to Kentucky Senator, Rand Paul. The son of a great Libertarian, Ron Paul, Rand Paul isn't even close – just another phoney politician.
In the subject video, Paul places the blame for the shoot down of MH17 on Russia. He knows better, but hopes you don't. Let's do a quick review: There were no Russian forces in the area. There were no Russian missiles in the area, except those operated by the government of Ukraine. There were no fighter jets in the area except those operated by the government of Ukraine. Paul then goes on to lay the blame for the slaughter of innocent men, women and children, in Gaza at the feet of Hamas, leaving Israel totally blameless.
I have also included a video of Rand Paul avoiding questions on his support for his father's political opponent, Mitt Romney, from Luke Radowski, founder of We Are Change. Don't support him. Don't give him a nickel. If you really want to give him something, give him and all the other phoney politicians, the “heave ho” out of the Capitol and out of our lives.
After the sinking of the Battleship Maine, after the sinking of the Lusitania, after the Gulf of Tonkin incident, after the Iraqi weapons of mass destruction, after the Syrian poison gas attack, after the bombing of Libya, after the bombing of Serbia, and now, after the shoot down of the Malaysian airliner MH17, I really hope everyone has figured it out. The “it” to which I am referring is, the US government, my government, is comprised of pathological liars. As the verified history of just some of their false flags shows, they will do anything to get us into war. They then cash in while we spend our money and blood and the blood of our loved ones to fight wars that they start, but will not fight themselves.
The subject video covers some of the recent events. I beg everyone to turn off our mainstream media and anything that carries government talking points. There is no point. It is like believing a cheating spouse who has been caught dozens of times, but insists it wasn't them coming out of the motel room with a companion.
Christopher Hedges wrote an article that could have been pulled right out of my brain. In this article he pointed out that you cannot attend any sporting event in America without being subjected to a non stop barrage of glorification of our military state.
You will sing the National Anthem. Many will sing “God Bless America”. Sometimes you will recite the pledge of allegiance. We are subjected to military personnel in uniform and fly overs from fighter jets. And we cheer and sing and cry, because we all love war so much and everyone who wears a military uniform is a hero.
Really? Isn't a hero someone who performs a heroic act? Does every single soldier, sailor and airman, perform heroic acts? Are all of our wars good? After 12 years in Afghanistan and watching our soldiers guard poppy fields there, is that fighting for freedom? What about that war in Iraq? Remember the weapons of mass destruction and the non existent alliance between Saddam and Al-Qaeda? How about the phoney gas attack in Syria last year? Americans have been turned into non thinking sheep. So we sing and cheer and cry – over nothing. And those who control us ridicule our stupidity. It's been done before in other empires. They're gone. Soon we shall join them.
How America's Sporting Events Have Turned into Mass Religious Events to Bless Wars and Militarism
The religious reverie—repeated in sports arenas—is used to justify our bloated war budget and endless wars.

July 8, 2014 |
BOSTON—On Saturday I went to one of the massive temples across the country where we celebrate our state religion. The temple I visited was Boston’s Fenway Park. I was inspired to go by reading Andrew Bacevich’s thoughtful book “Breach of Trust: How Americans Failed Their Soldiers and Their Country,” which opens with a scene at Fenway from July 4, 2011. The Fourth of July worship service that I attended last week—a game between the Red Sox and the Baltimore Orioles—was a day late because of a rescheduling caused by Tropical Storm Arthur. When the crowd sang “The Star-Spangled Banner” a gargantuan American flag descended to cover “the Green Monster,” the 37-foot, 2-inch-high wall in left field. Patriotic music blasted from loudspeakers. Col. Lester A. Weilacher, commander of the 66th Air Base Group at Massachusetts’ Hanscom Air Force Base, wearing a light blue short-sleeved Air Force shirt and dark blue pants, threw the ceremonial first pitch. A line of Air Force personnel stood along the left field wall. The fighter jets—our angels of death—that usually roar over the stadium on the Fourth were absent. But the face of Fernard Frechette, a 93-year-old World War II veteran who was attending, appeared on the 38-by-100-foot Jumbotron above the center-field seats as part of Fenway’s “Hats Off to Heroes” program, which honors military veterans or active-duty members at every game. The crowd stood and applauded. Army National Guard Sgt. Ben Arnold had been honored at the previous game, on Wednesday. Arnold said his favorite Red Sox player was Mike Napoli. Arnold, who fought in Afghanistan, makes about $27,000 a year. Napoli makes $16 million. The owners of the Red Sox clear about $60 million annually. God bless America.
The religious reverie—repeated in sports arenas throughout the United States—is used to justify our bloated war budget and endless wars. Schools and libraries are closing. Unemployment and underemployment are chronic. Our infrastructure is broken and decrepit. And we will have paid a crippling $4 trillion for the useless and futile wars we waged over the last 13 years in the Middle East. But the military remains as unassailable as Jesus, or, among those who have season tickets at Fenway Park, the Red Sox. The military is the repository of our honor and patriotism. No public official dares criticize the armed forces or challenge their divine right to more than half of all the nation’s discretionary spending. And although we may be distrustful of government, the military—in the twisted logic of the American mind—is somehow separate.
The heroes of war and the heroes of sport are indistinguishable in militarized societies. War is sold to a gullible public as a noble game. Few have the athletic prowess to play professional sports, but almost any young man or woman can go to a recruiter and sign up to be a military hero. The fusion of the military with baseball, along with the recruitment ads that appeared intermittently Saturday on the television screens mounted on green iron pillars throughout Fenway Park, caters to this illusion: Sign up. You will be part of a professional team. We will show you in your uniform on the Jumbotron in Fenway Park. You will be a hero like Mike Napoli.
Saturday’s crowd of some 37,000, which paid on average about $70 for a ticket, dutifully sang hosannas—including “God Bless America” in the seventh inning—to the flag and the instruments of death and war. It blessed and applauded a military machine that, ironically, oversees the wholesale surveillance of everyone in the ballpark and has the power under the National Defense Authorization Act to snatch anyone in the stands and hold him or her indefinitely in a military facility. There was no mention of targeted assassinations of U.S. citizens, kill lists or those lost or crippled in the wars. The crowd roared its approval every time the military was mentioned. It cheered its own enslavement.
War is not a sport. It is about killing. It is dirty, messy and deeply demoralizing. It brings with it trauma, lifelong wounds, loss and feelings of shame and guilt. It leaves bleeding or dead bodies on its fields. The pay is lousy. The working conditions are horrific. And those who come back from war are usually discarded. The veterans who died waiting for medical care from Veterans Affairs hospitals could, if they were alive, explain the difference between being a multimillion-dollar-a-year baseball star and a lance corporal home from Iraq or Afghanistan. At best, you are trotted out for a public event, as long as you read from the script they give you, the one designed to entice the naive into the military. Otherwise, you are forgotten.
All religions need relics. Old uniforms, bats, balls, gloves and caps are preserved in the Baseball Hall of Fame, like the bones of saints in churches. In that Cooperstown, N.Y., museum you walk by glass cases of baseball relics on your way to the third-floor display bearing the words “Sacred Ground: Examining ballparks of the past and present, this exhibit takes a look at America’s cathedrals of the game.” At ballparks the teams display statues of their titans—there is one of left fielder Ted Williams outside Fenway Park. And tens of thousands of dollars are paid for objects used by the immortals. A 1968 Mickey Mantle jersey was auctioned in May for $201,450. Team minutiae and statistics are preserved, much as monasteries preserve details of the lives and deaths of saints. Epic tales of glory and defeat are etched into the permanent record. The military has astutely deified itself through the fans’ deification of teams.
The collective euphoria experienced in stadiums, especially among those struggling to survive in the corporate state, gives to many anxious Americans what they crave. They flock to the temples of sport while most places of traditional religious worship in the United States are largely deserted on the Sabbath. Those packed into the stadiums feel as if they and everyone around them speak the same language. They believe those in the crowd are one entity. And they all hate the same enemy. To walk through Fenway Park in a New York Yankees shirt is to court verbal abuse. To be identified as a Yankees fan after a game in one of the bars outside the park is unwise. The longing to belong, especially in a society where many have lost their sense of place and identity, is skillfully catered to by both the professional sports machine and the military propaganda machine.
Many sports devotees return after the games to dead-end jobs, or no jobs, to massive personal debt, to the bleakness of the future. No wonder supplicants at Fenway Park part with such large sums of money to be entranced by fantasy for a few hours. And no wonder it is hard to distinguish the fantasy of a game from the fantasy of the military. Life in the Army or the Marines begins to look like spending a few years at Fenway. And that is why the military invests so much in sponsoring sporting events. Between innings Saturday, the screen above my head flashed segments called “U.S. Army Presents Top Prospects” that showcased promising ballplayers. Recruitment ads appeared at intervals. And the logo “Discover a Stronger Future. There’s Strong. There’s Army Strong” was ubiquitous. The Pentagon spends some $4.7 billion a year on recruiting, advertising, public affairs and psychological operations, according to a 2009 report published by The Associated Press. And much of that is targeted at the audiences of professional sports.
The owners of coal companies at the turn of the 20th century in southern West Virginia found that by funding local baseball teams they could blunt the solidarity of workers. Towns and coal camps rallied around their individual teams. Workers divided themselves according to team loyalty. Sport rivalries became personal. The owners, elated, used the teams to help fracture the labor movement. And the infernal logic is no different today. The players on a baseball team—who usually do not come from the city they represent—are used to promote a provincial chauvinism and a false sense of belonging and empowerment. And the financial, emotional and intellectual energy invested by fans in these well-choreographed spectacles keeps the onlookers docile and supine.
The Boston Globe and the Knight-Ridder media chain reported in 2005 that Phillip H. Morse, a minority partner of the Boston Red Sox, chartered his private jet to the Central Intelligence Agency, which used it to pick up terrorism suspects in the Middle East and Europe and fly them to Guantanamo Bay. The plane was spotted in Cairo on Feb. 18, 2003, according to Knight-Ridder. The imam of Milan, Hassan Mustafa Osama Nasr, also known as Abu Omar, had been kidnapped the day before on a Milan street by the CIA and the Italian Military Intelligence and Security Service. He was then flown clandestinely to Egypt. It is nearly certain that Morse’s plane was used for that flight. The imam was allegedly beaten and tortured in an Egyptian-run “black site.” The Gulfstream jet, the Globe reported, rented for $5,365 an hour, which, it calculated, worked out to $128,760 for a 24-hour day, or about $900,000 a week. Not even the highest-paid star on the Red Sox makes that much money.
The use of the Morse jet to carry out extraordinary rendition exposes the dark side of professional sports, how it is used by oligarchs and the military to manipulate and control us. The Red Sox logo that normally adorns the plane was missing. But the logo in any case would not have been visible to the imam, whose head would have been covered with a hood. The only difference between the imam and the rest of us is that we don’t require blindfolds.
The subject article covers a story from back in May where it was exposed that Ukrainian government authorities were planning a false flag against Russia. The prediction was for Ukraine soldiers dressing up as Russian soldiers and killing a bunch of innocent people. That didn't happen ---yet. Of course yesterday's tragic shooting down of a passenger airline appears to be a good substitute.
After the subject article I published an article about the Northwoods document. This was a plan put to the President written by the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff. In it they suggested killing John Glen, hi-jacking planes, shooting down civilian airlines and other such sadistic actions. They would then blame U.S. enemies for the terror.
The more things change, the more they stay the same. Our government, and most governments, continually lie to their citizens. A good rule of thumb is to listen to what our government has to say on any subject and believe the opposite.

Kiev Plans False Flag Against Russia
by Stephen Lendman
Intense Russia bashing persists daily. It's official US policy. Resolving Ukraine's crisis diplomatically is systematically prevented.
Media scoundrels march in lockstep with what demands condemnation. Stoking conflict is prioritized. Russia is irresponsibly blamed for US-orchestrated Kiev crimes.
Orders come from straight from Washington. Coup-appointed putschists salute and obey.
On May 6, Voice of Russia (VOR) headlined "Ukrainian forces prepare provocation against Russia in Donetsk."
False flags are a longstanding US tradition. They go way back. They used often. Previous articles discussed them.
Wars followed. The 9/11 attack was the mother of all false flags. It's the biggest of Big Lies of our time. It launched over a decade of imperial wars.
They rage out-of-control. They continue after US forces withdraw. They persist at home. They target Muslims, Latino immigrants, whistleblowers, dissidents, activists of all stripes and other Americans.
They target independent nations lawlessly. They eliminate outlier foreign leaders. They aim to remove all challengers to US global dominance.
They prioritize conflict and instability. They create enemies where none exist. According to VOR, a false flag provocation against Russia is planned.
"Russian military uniforms and fake IDs of Russian officers have been taken to the eastern Ukrainian city of Donetsk," said VOR.
A staged attack on Ukrainian border guards is planned. It's reminiscent of how WW II began.
Nazis impersonated alleged Polish terrorists. They attacked the Gleiwitz radio station in Upper Silesia, Germany.
It bordered both countries. It was pretext to attack Poland. WW II followed.
Is Obama risking No. III? Is he mad enough to try? Is he beholden to crazies that extreme?
A Ukrainian official said on condition of anonymity: "The task is to stage an attack on Ukrainian border guards by people dressed in Russian military uniforms and make a video of it."
"The SBU (Ukraine Security Service) has transferred about 20 personal bodyguards of Dnepropetrovsk Region governor (Igor) Kolomoisky from Kiev to Donetsk."
"(T)he group" will team with (neo-Nazi) Right Sector" hoodlums. It'll "accompan(y) a cargo of about 200 sets of Russian military uniforms and about 70 (blank]) IDs of Russian military officers."
At issue is crushing Eastern Ukrainian resistance. It's eliminating freedom fighters for justice. It's smashing all opposition.
It's solidifying hardline rule. It's blaming its crimes on Russia. It risks igniting a major East/West confrontation.
It risks potential global war. It risks what no responsible leader would dare.
Sergei Lavrov is a world class diplomat. He's a bigger-than-life figure. He forthrightly stands tall.
He shames is Western counterparts. He makes John Kerry look illegitimate by comparison.
He's gone all-out to resolve Ukrainian crisis conditions diplomatically. He wants conflict contained. He wants it ended. He wants it kept from spinning out-of control.
He's deeply worried. He sees fascism reemergent in Ukraine. It took millions of Soviet Russian lives decades earlier.
"For many years, Europe has been turning a blind eye to the fact how this ideology is acquiring new supporters, how former Waffen SS legionaries found as war criminals at the Nuremberg Trials stage marches," he said.
In Ukraine, they're "already not just marches with slogans glorifying Nazi criminals, but a 'live' manifestation of fascism."
"What happened in the city of Odessa on May 2 is a sheer act of fascism, and we will not permit to sweep the facts under carpet as the ruling coalition tries to do so, concealing the investigation from the public."
"We will seek for the truth, will seek for all evidence which was produced by eyewitnesses and which show that current Kiev authorities are hushing up consciously the scale of tragedy and will seek for all the truth to be investigated and made public."
"We will not permit…fascism (again) in Europe (nor) in Russia," Lavrov added.
He accused Western countries of "turning a blind eye to the true causes of" Odessa's massacre. They suppressed neo-Nazi Right Sector crimes.
They irresponsibly accused Russia. They blamed victims for their own deaths. Extremists behind Friday's massacre "didn't hide that they were celebrating the victory of Russians," he said.
"We have witnessed a frank display of fascism. None of the radical nationalists who committed this terrible crime has been arrested."
"The Kiev authorities have vaguely expressed condolences, declared a mourning and opened (a less than serious) investigation."
"(N)ot many people will be surprised if" it's (whitewashed the same way as) fatal sniper shooting(s) in the Ukrainian capital in February."
"(S)uch a fate was prepared for Crimea, but its multinational people with Russia's support defended their future."
Last Friday, Odessa clashes erupted. Neo-Nazi Right Sector thugs provoked them. Slaughtering 46 activists followed. Scores of others were injured.
Dozens remain missing. They're unaccounted for. They're either dead or in ruthless Right Sector hands. They'll likely never be seen again alive. Fascists operate this way.
Right Sector hoodlums and likeminded extremists are some of the worst. Washington uses them advantageously. It does so to crush all opposition. It's to solidify unchallenged control.
Russia's Foreign Ministry was clear and unequivocal. It called what happened "criminal irresponsibility of the Kiev leadership indulging insolent nationalist radicals, including Right Sector, who are staging a campaign of physical terror against supporters of federalization and real constitutional changes in Ukrainian society."
Lavrov said America and rogue EU partners ducked commenting on diktats straight from Washington and Brussels.
They ordered harsh crackdowns against Ukrainians wanting to live free.
"In the midst of February Maidan confrontations in Kiev, Nato Defense Ministers and Secretary General stated the inadmissibility of intervention of the armed forces of Ukraine in the political process, and insisted on the neutrality of the army," said Lavrov.
"Today Washington and Brussels affirm the bogus legitimacy of so-called "anti-terrorist operation(s)."
Neo-Nazis thugs terrorize their own people. They're praised for committing mass murder. Washington wholeheartedly endorses their ruthlessness.
"In the midst of February Maidan confrontations in Kiev, Nato Defense Ministers and Secretary General stated the inadmissibility of intervention of the armed forces of Ukraine in the political process, and insisted on the neutrality of the army," said Lavrov.
"We don't do regime change. We don't do color revolutions, let alone brown-hued ones like those in Ukraine," he added.
At the same time, Russia is "not walking away from contacts with our Ukrainian counterparts, and one result of such contacts was the Geneva Statement of April 17."
"Practical steps can be taken only by the Ukrainians themselves if they are not restrained from cooperating with each other. Alas, our Western partners are not ready to agree to the equitable participation of southeastern Ukraine in the national dialogue."
"We honestly speak about that, in particular, with our American and European colleagues. They claim this is not so."
If not, "then anything is possible and let us not tear Ukraine apart between the East and the West but pool efforts and help start the dialogue, which can coordinate practical steps towards the fulfillment of all agreements and statements."
Lavrov is resilient. He's extraordinarily patient. He matches the best of Job.
Despite daily irresponsible Russia bashing, he persists seeking responsible conflict resolution.
He want all sides represented in forthright dialogue. He urges compromise to settle things.
He wants four-party Geneva agreement terms observed. He urges more diplomatic discussions.
He wants all Ukrainians treated fairly and equitably. He wants each showing respect for others
He wants Kiev to stop using its military, National Guard and Right Sector thugs against its own people.
"(T)he first and obvious step is to cancel the order to use the army and the National Guard for suppressing (legitimate) protests," he said.
He calls presidential elections held under conflict conditions unrealistic. Resolving conflict conditions equitably come first.
Prioritizing geopolitical ambitions above responsible governance assures continued conflict. It means no end of fighting.
It keeps Ukraine on the boil. Perhaps doing so longterm. Maybe escalating things out-of-control.
A previous article profiled Lavrov. It called him a true peace champion. His efforts represent the best of responsible conflict resolution.
He persists tirelessly for peace. He deserves Nobel award recognition. He's polar opposite Kerry. Previous articles compared them.
Kerry represents the worst of America's dark side. He mocks legitimacy. He's an unindicted war criminal. He shames the office he holds.
Demagoguery punctuates his comments. It exceeds the worst of Cold War rhetoric. He's been caught red-handed lying numerous times.
He disdains rule of law principles. He supports war. He deplores peace. He's indifferent to human suffering. He's a monument to wrong over right.
He disgraces his country, position and humanity. He belongs in prison, not high office. On May 6, he met with EU foreign policy chief Katherine Ashton.
They're partners in crime. We "covered a lot of ground," he said. We "shared strategy." They discussed Ukraine.
He lied saying Russia "fail(ed) to live up to the very plain and simple, easy-to-interpret commitments that were made in Geneva."
"Ukraine's government, literally before the ink was dry, started to implement on that agreement. And they have held up their end of the bargain."
"Ukraine has shown remarkable restraint. Almost immediately coming out of that meeting in Geneva, they ordered a cessation of any kind of counterterrorism activity, any effort to remove people from buildings based on the notion that both sides were going to work to bring people out of those buildings."
"And the fact is that they have been committed in Kyiv to trying to move their country forward through nonviolence, through constitutional reform, through dialogue, and by reaching out to the disaffected parts of Ukraine."
Fact: Russia fully complies with agreed on Geneva terms.
Fact: Washington systematically violated them straightaway.
Fact: So did coup-appointed Kiev fascists.
Fact: They launched aggression against their own people the next day.
Fact: They're murdering them in cold blood.
Fact: They deployed neo-Nazi Right Sector thugs.
Fact: They ordered them to kill, torture and otherwise abuse Eastern Ukrainian freedom fighters.
Fact: The Odessa massacre followed.
Fact: Expect much worse ahead.
Fact: Orders to commit mass murder come straight from Washington.
Fact: Kerry fools no one paying attention.
Fact: His game is coverup and denial.
Fact: It's pointing fingers the wrong way.
Fact: It's blaming Russia for US-ordered Kiev crimes.
We're "very concerned about efforts of pro-Russian separatists in Donetsk, in Luhansk to organize, frankly, a contrived, bogus independence referendum on May 11th," said Kerry.
It's "the Crimea playbook all over again and no civilized nation is going to recognize the results of such a bogus effort."
Fact: They're factory workers, miners, farmers, store clerks, and defenders of right over wrong.
Fact: They're acting entirely on their own volition.
Fact: They want their fundamental rights respected.
Fact: They want local autonomy.
Fact: They don't seek separation from Ukraine.
Fact: Their planned referendums are entirely legitimate.
Fact: They deserve worldwide support.
Fact: Expect all "civilized nation(s)" to recognize their results.
"(I)f Russian elements continue to sabotage the democratic process and prevent Ukraine from holding a free and fair election 19 days from now on the 25th, then we stand ready to implement additional sanctions," said Kerry.
"And the 'we' is Europe and the United States together."
Fact: So-called upcoming elections have no legitimacy whatever.
Fact: So-called "Russian elements" don't exist.
Fact: Washington and rogue EU partners disagree sharply on sanctions.
Fact: European nations have valued political and economic ties to Russia.
Fact: They won't let Washington jeopardize them.
Fact: They won't impose sanctions harming their own self-interest.
Fact: Washington is largely isolated on its own imposing harsh ones if planned.
"We are not going to sit idly by while Russian elements fan the flames of instability, instead of fulfilling the commitments that we made," said Kerry.
"(W)e came together in a real spirit of trying to de-escalate. And we weren't playing a game."
"Regrettably, (it) was not met with reciprocity."
"So the choice is really Russia's. The United States, the EU, and our allies have made our choice very, very clear:"
"We are going to stand together united not just in support of Ukraine, but united in support of de-escalating; united in support of a peaceful, diplomatic solution…"
Facts on the ground are polar opposite Kerry's scenario. Big Lies infested his comments.
He twisted truth to fit US policy. At issue is advancing America's imperium. It's controlling Ukraine.
It's incorporating it into NATO. It's targeting Russia. It's eliminating a major rival.
It's transforming it into a subservient vassal state. It's plundering its resources. It's exploiting its people.
It's violating fundamental international, constitutional and US statute laws doing so.
It's waging war on humanity for unchallenged global dominance. It's recklessly risking WW III.
Kerry is Obama's geopolitical front man. It bears repeating. He represents the worst of America's dark side.
He supports war. He deplores peace. He risks possible WW III. At stake is humanity's survival.
Policies he furthers risk what no responsible official would endorse. The worst of all possible outcomes may follow.

US PLANNED FAKE TERROR ATTACKS ON CITIZENS
TO CREATE SUPPORT FOR CUBAN WAR
...In [Joint Chief's chair] Lemnitzer's view, the country would be far better off if the generals could take over. [JFK assassination legend has it some general presided over the fudgy JFK autopsy. --Mk]
For those military officers who were sitting on the fence, the Kennedy administration's botched Bay of Pigs invasion was the last straw. "The Bay of Pigs fiasco broke the dike," said one report at the time. "President Kennedy was pilloried by the super patriots as a 'no-win' chief . . . The Far Right became a fount of proposals born of frustration and put forward in the name of anti-Communism. . . Active-duty commanders played host to anti-Communist seminars on their bases and attended or addressed Right-wing meetings elsewhere."
Although no one in Congress could have known it at the time, Lemnitzer and the Joint Chiefs had quietly slipped over the edge.
According to secret and long-hidden documents obtained for Body of Secrets, the Joint Chiefs of Staff drew up and approved plans for what may be the most corrupt plan ever created by the U.S. government. In the name of antiCommunism, they proposed launching a secret and bloody war of terrorism against their own country in order to trick the American public into supporting an ill-conceived war they intended to launch against Cuba.
Click images for full sized scans
Code named Operation Northwoods, the plan, which had the written approval of the Chairman and every member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, called for innocent people to be shot on American streets; for boats carrying refugees fleeing Cuba to be sunk on the high seas; for a wave of violent terrorism to be launched in Washington, D.C., Miami, and elsewhere. People would be framed for bombings they did not commit; planes would be hijacked. Using phony evidence, all of it would be blamed on Castro, thus giving Lemnitzer and his cabal the excuse, as well as the public and international backing, they needed to launch their war.
The idea may actually have originated with President Eisenhower in the last days of his administration. With the Cold War hotter than ever and the recent U-2 scandal fresh in the public's memory, the old general wanted to go out with a win. He wanted desperately to invade Cuba in the weeks leading up to Kennedy's inauguration; indeed, on January 3 he told Lemnitzer and other aides in his Cabinet Room that he would move against Castro before the inauguration if only the Cubans gave him a really good excuse. Then, with time growing short, Eisenhower floated an idea. If Castro failed to provide that excuse, perhaps, he said, the United States "could think of manufacturing something that would be generally acceptable." What he was suggesting was a pretext a bombing, an attack, an act of sabotage carried out secretly against the United States by the United States. Its purpose would be to justify the launching of a war. It was a dangerous suggestion by a desperate president.
Although no such war took place, the idea was not lost on General Lemnitzer But he and his colleagues were frustrated by Kennedy's failure to authorize their plan, and angry that Castro had not provided an excuse to invade.
The final straw may have come during a White House meeting on February 26, 1962. Concerned that General Lansdale's various covert action plans under Operation Mongoose were simply becoming more outrageous and going nowhere, Robert Kennedy told him to drop all anti-Castro efforts. Instead, Lansdale was ordered to concentrate for the next three months strictly on gathering intelligence about Cuba. It was a humiliating defeat for Lansdale, a man more accustomed to praise than to scorn.
As the Kennedy brothers appeared to suddenly "go soft" on Castro, Lemnitzer could see his opportunity to invade Cuba quickly slipping away. The attempts to provoke the Cuban public to revolt seemed dead and Castro, unfortunately, appeared to have no inclination to launch any attacks against Americans or their property Lemnitzer and the other Chiefs knew there was only one option left that would ensure their war. They would have to trick the American public and world opinion into hating Cuba so much that they would not only go along, but would insist that he and his generals launch their war against Castro. "World opinion, and the United Nations forum," said a secret JCS document, "should be favorably affected by developing the international image of the Cuban government as rash and irresponsible, and as an alarming and unpredictable threat to the peace of the Western Hemisphere."
Operation Northwoods called for a war in which many patriotic Americans and innocent Cubans would die senseless deaths, all to satisfy the egos of twisted generals back in Washington, safe in their taxpayer financed homes and limousines.
One idea seriously considered involved the launch of John Glenn, the first American to orbit the earth. On February 20,1962, Glenn was to lift off from Cape Canaveral, Florida, on his historic journey. The flight was to carry the banner of America's virtues of truth, freedom, and democracy into orbit high over the planet. But Lemnitzer and his Chiefs had a different idea. They proposed to Lansdale that, should the rocket explode and kill Glenn, "the objective is to provide irrevocable proof that . . . the fault lies with the Communists et al Cuba [sic.]"
This would be accomplished, Lemnitzer continued, "by manufacturing various pieces of evidence which would prove electronic interference on the part of the Cubans." Thus, as NASA prepared to send the first American into space, the Joint Chiefs of Staff were preparing to use John Glenn's possible death as a pretext to launch a war.
Glenn lifted into history without mishap, leaving Lemnitzer and the Chiefs to begin devising new plots which they suggested be carried out "within the time frame of the next few months."
Among the actions recommended was "a series of well coordinated incidents to take place in and around" the U.S. Navy base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. This included dressing "friendly" Cubans in Cuban military uniforms and then have them "start riots near the main gate of the base. Others would pretend to be saboteurs inside the base. Ammunition would be blown up, fires started, aircraft sabotaged, mortars fired at the base with damage to installations."
The suggested operations grew progressively more outrageous. Another called for an action similar to the infamous incident in February 1898 when an explosion aboard the battleship Maine in Havana harbor killed 266 U.S. sailors. Although the exact cause of the explosion remained undetermined, it sparked the Spanish-American War with Cuba. Incited by the deadly blast, more than one million men volunteered for duty. Lemnitzer and his generals came up with a similar plan. "We could blow up a U.S. ship in Guantanamo Bay and blame Cuba," they proposed; "casualty lists in U.S. newspapers would cause a helpful wave of national indignation."
There seemed no limit to their fanaticism: "We could develop a Communist Cuban terror campaign in the Miami area, in other Florida cities and even in Washington," they wrote. "The terror campaign could be pointed at Cuban refugees seeking haven in the United States.
We could sink a boatload of Cubans en route to Florida (real or simulated). . . . We could foster attempts on lives of Cuban refugees in the United States even to the extent of wounding in instances to be widely publicized."
Bombings were proposed, false arrests, hijackings:
*"Exploding a few plastic bombs in carefully chosen spots, the arrest of Cuban agents and the release of prepared documents substantiating Cuban involvement also would be helpful in projecting the idea of an irresponsible government."
*"Advantage can be taken of the sensitivity of the Dominican [Republic] Air Force to intrusions within their national air space. 'Cuban' B-26 or C-46 type aircraft could make cane burning raids at night. Soviet Bloc incendiaries could be found. This could be coupled with 'Cuban' messages to the Communist underground in the Dominican Republic and 'Cuban' shipments of arms which would be found, or intercepted, on the beach. Use of MiG type aircraft by U.S. pilots could provide additional provocation."
*"Hijacking attempts against civil air and surface craft could appear to continue as harassing measures condoned by the Government of Cuba."
Among the most elaborate schemes was to "create an incident which will demonstrate convincingly that a Cuban aircraft has attacked and shot down a chartered civil airliner en route from the United States to Jamaica, Guatemala, Panama or Venezuela. The destination would be chosen only to cause the flight plan route to cross Cuba. The passengers could be a group of college students off on a holiday or any grouping of persons with a common interest to support chartering a non-scheduled flight."
Lemnitzer and the Joint Chiefs worked out a complex deception:
An aircraft at Elgin AFB would be painted and numbered as an exact duplicate for a civil registered aircraft belonging to a CJA proprietary organization in the Miami area. At a designated time the duplicate would be substituted for the actual civil aircraft and would be loaded with the selected passengers, all boarded under carefully prepared aliases. The actual registered aircraft would be converted to a drone [a remotely controlled unmanned aircraft]. Take off times of the drone aircraft and the actual aircraft will be scheduled to allow a rendezvous south of Florida.
From the rendezvous point the passenger-carrying aircraft will descend to minimum altitude and go directly into an auxiliary field at Elgin AFB where arrangements will have been made to evacuate the passengers and return the aircraft to its original status. The drone aircraft meanwhile will continue to fly the filed flight plan. When over Cuba the drone will be transmitting on the international distress frequency a "May Day" message stating he is under attack by Cuban MiG aircraft. The transmission will be interrupted by destruction of the aircraft, which will be triggered by radio signal. This will allow ICAO [International Civil Aviation Organization radio stations in the Western Hemisphere to tell the U.S. what has happened to the aircraft instead of the U.S. trying to "sell" the incident.
Finally, there was a plan to "make it appear that Communist Cuban MiGs have destroyed a USAF aircraft over international waters in an unprovoked attack." It was a particularly believable operation given the decade of shoot downs that had just taken place.
In the final sentence of his letter to Secretary McNamara recommending the operations, Lemnitzer made a grab for even more power asking that the Joint Chiefs be placed in charge of carrying out Operation Northwoods and the invasion. "It is recommended," he wrote, "that this responsibility for both oven and covert military operations be assigned to the Joint Chiefs of Staff."
At 2:30 on the afternoon of Tuesday, March 13, 1962, Lemnitzer went over last-minute details of Operation Northwoods with his covert action chief, Brigadier General William H. Craig, and signed the document. He then went to a "special meeting" in McNamara's office. An hour later he met with Kennedy's military representative, General Maxwell Taylor. What happened during those meetings is unknown. But three days later, President Kennedy told Lemnitzer that there was virtually no possibility that the U.S. would ever use overt military force in Cuba.
Undeterred, Lemnitzer and the Chiefs persisted, virtually to the point of demanding that they be given authority to invade and take over Cuba. About a month after submitting Operation Northwoods, they met the "tank," as the JCS conference room was called, and agreed on the wording of a tough memorandum to McNamara. "The Joint Chiefs of Staff believe that the Cuban problem must be solved in the near future," they wrote. "Further, they see no prospect of early success in overthrowing the present communist regime either as a result of internal uprising or external political, economic or psychological pressures. Accordingly they believe that military intervention by the United States will be required to overthrow the present communist regime."
Lemnitzer was virtually rabid in his hatred of Communism in general and Castro in particular "The Joint Chiefs of Staff believe that the United States can undertake military intervention in Cuba without risk of general war" he continued. "They also believe that the intervention can be accomplished rapidly enough to minimize communist opportunities for solicitation of UN action." However; what Lemnitzer was suggesting was not freeing the Cuban people, who were largely in support of Castro, but imprisoning them in a U.S. military-controlled police state. "Forces would assure rapid essential military control of Cuba," he wrote. "Continued police action would be required."
Concluding, Lemnitzer did not mince words: "[T]he Joint Chiefs of Staff recommend that a national policy of early military intervention in Cuba be adopted by the United States. They also recommend that such intervention be undertaken as soon as possible and preferably before the release of National Guard and Reserve forces presently on active duty."
By then McNamara had virtually no confidence in his military chief and was rejecting nearly every proposal the general sent to him. The rejections became so routine, said one of Lemnitzer's former staff officers, that the staffer told the general that the situation was putting the military in an "embarrassing rut." But Lemnitzer replied, "I am the senior military office--it's my job to state what I believe and it's his [McNamara's] job to approve or disapprove." "McNamara's arrogance was astonishing," said Lemnitzer's aide, who knew nothing of Operation Northwoods. "He gave General Lemnitzer very short shrift and treated him like a schoolboy. The general almost stood at attention when he came into the room. Everything was 'Yes, sir' and 'No, sir.'
Within months, Lemnitzer was denied a second term as JCS chairman and transferred to Europe as chief of NATO. Years later President Gerald Ford appointed Lemnitzer, a darling of the Republican right, to the President's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board. Lemnitzer's Cuba chief, Brigadier General Craig, was also transferred. Promoted to major general, he spent three years as chief of the Army Security Agency, NSA's military arm.
Because of the secrecy and illegality of Operation Northwoods, all details remained hidden for forty years. Lemnitzer may have thought that all copies of the relevant documents had been destroyed; he was not one to leave compromising material lying around. Following the Bay of Pigs debacle, for example, he ordered Brigadier General David W Gray, Craig's predecessor as chief of the Cuba project within the JCS, to destroy all his notes concerning Joint Chiefs actions and discussions during that period. Gray's meticulous notes were the only detailed official records of what happened within the JCS during that time. According to Gray, Lemnitzer feared a congressional investigation and therefore wanted any incriminating evidence destroyed.
With the evidence destroyed, Lemnitzer felt free to lie to Congress. When asked, during secret hearings before a Senate committee, if he knew of any Pentagon plans for a direct invasion of Cuba he said he did not. Yet detailed JCS invasion plans had been drawn up even before Kennedy was inaugurated. And additional plans had been developed since. The consummate planner and man of details also became evasive, suddenly encountering great difficulty in recalling key aspects of the operation, as if he had been out of the country during the period. It was a sorry spectacle. Senator Gore called for Lemnitzer to be fired. "We need a shake up of the Joint Chiefs of Staff" he said. "We direly need a new chairman, as well as new members." No one had any idea of Operation Northwoods.
Because so many documents were destroyed, it is difficult to determine how many senior officials were aware of Operation Northwoods. As has been described, the document was signed and fully approved by Lemnitzer and the rest of the Joint Chiefs and addressed to the Secretary of Defense for his signature. Whether it went beyond McNamara to the president and the attorney general is not known.
Even after Lemnitzer lost his job, the Joint Chiefs kept planning "pretext" operations at least into 1963. Among their proposals was a deliberately create a war between Cuba and any of a number of .n American neighbors. This would give the United States military an excuse to come in on the side of Cuba's adversary and get rid of "A contrived 'Cuban' attack on an OAS [Organization of Americas] member could be set up," said one proposal, "and the attacked state could be urged to 'take measures of self-defense and request ice from the U.S. and OAS; the U.S. could almost certainly obtain necessary two-thirds support among OAS members for collective action against Cuba."
Among the nations they suggested that the United States secretly were Jamaica and Trinidad-Tobago. Both were members of the Commonwealth; thus, by secretly attacking them and then blaming Cuba, the United States could lure England into the war Castro. The report noted, "Any of the contrived situations de above are inherently, extremely risky in our democratic system in which security can be maintained, after the fact, with very great difficulty. If the decision should be made to set up a contrived situation it be one in which participation by U.S. personnel is limited only to the most highly trusted covert personnel. This suggests the infeasibility of the use of military units for any aspect of the contrived situation."
The report even suggested secretly paying someone in the Castro government to attack the United States: "The only area remaining for ration then would be to bribe one of Castro's subordinate commanders to initiate an attack on [the U.S. naval base at] Guantanamo." The act suggested--bribing a foreign nation to launch a violent attack American military installation--was treason.
In May 1963, Assistant Secretary of Defense Paul H. Nitze sent a the White House proposing "a possible scenario whereby an attack on a United States reconnaissance aircraft could be exploited toward the end of effecting the removal of the Castro regime." In the event Cuba attacked a U-2, the plan proposed sending in additional American pilots, this time on dangerous, unnecessary low-level reconnaissance missions with the expectation that they would also be shot down, thus provoking a war "[T]he U.S. could undertake various measures designed to stimulate the Cubans to provoke a new incident," said the plan. Nitze, however, did not volunteer to be one of the pilots.
One idea involved sending fighters across the island on "harassing reconnaissance" and "show-off" missions "flaunting our freedom of action, hoping to stir the Cuban military to action." "Thus," said the plan, "depending above all on whether the Cubans were or could be made to be trigger-happy, the development of the initial downing of a reconnaissance plane could lead at best to the elimination of Castro, perhaps to the removal of Soviet troops and the installation of ground inspection in Cuba, or at the least to our demonstration of firmness on reconnaissance." About a month later, a low-level flight was made across Cuba, but unfortunately for the Pentagon, instead of bullets it produced only a protest.
Lemnitzer was a dangerous-perhaps even unbalanced-right-wing extremist in an extraordinarily sensitive position during a critical period. But Operation Northwoods also had the support of every single member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and even senior Pentagon official Paul Nitze argued in favor of provoking a phony war with Cuba. The fact that the most senior members of all the services and the Pentagon could be so out of touch with reality and the meaning of democracy would be hidden for four decades.
In retrospect, the documents offer new insight into the thinking of the military's star-studded leadership. Although they never succeeded in launching America into a phony war with Cuba, they may have done so with Vietnam. More than 50,000 Americans and more than 2 million Vietnamese were eventually killed in that war.
It has long been suspected that the 1964 Gulf of Tonkin incident-the spark that led to America's long war in Vietnam-was largely staged or provoked by U.S. officials in order to build up congressional and public support for American involvement. Over the years, serious questions have been raised about the alleged attack by North Vietnamese patrol boats on two American destroyers in the Gulf But defenders of the Pentagon have always denied such charges, arguing that senior officials would never engage in such deceit.
Now, however, in light of the Operation Northwoods documents, it at deceiving the public and trumping up wars for Americans to fight and die in was standard, approved policy at the highest levels of the Pentagon. In fact, the Gulf of Tonkin seems right out of the Operation Northwoods playbook: "We could blow up a U.S. ship in Guantanamo Bay and blame Cuba . . . casualty lists in U.S. newspapers cause a helpful wave of indignation." One need only replace "Guantanamo Bay" with "Tonkin Gulf," and "Cuba" with "North Vietnam" and the Gulf of Tonkin incident may or may not have been stage-managed, but the senior Pentagon leadership at the time was clearly capable of such deceit.
"The public has a duty to watch its Government closely and keep it on the right track." --Lieutenant Gen. Kenneth A. Minihan, USAF, Director, NSA, _NSA Newsletter_, June 199

WHO SHOT DOWN MALAYSIAN AIRLINER?
I would suggest that one should read about the sinking of the Maine, which led to the Spanish American war and the sinking of the Lusitania, which led to America's involvement into World War One. The best way to get a reluctant citizenry into supporting an unpopular and unnecessary war is to blame your opponent for the slaughter of innocent civilians.
Now on to this tragedy. It has been determined this civilian aircraft was shot down by a surface to air missile. There is only one nation in the area of the shoot down that has missiles capable of shooting a plane at 30,000 feet. That nation is Ukraine. There may be some among the separatists who would like to have these weapons, but there is no evidence whatsoever that they have them. Furthermore, ALL of the nations that have received these weapon systems from Russia have also had Russian experts sent with them to teach the technicians on how to operate them. In the case of Syria, for instance, making these missiles operational takes several months.
So, if the separatists wanted to shoot down a plane, it sure wouldn't be a civilian plane flying at 30,000 feet. All of the hostile actions against the rebels have been low altitude-- no where close to 30,000 feet. No, it's Ukraine. Maybe not on orders from anyone up high, but it's them. They are the only ones with anything to gain. Certainly, Russia would be insane to kill innocent civilians. If they wanted to start a war, they would just attack the Ukraine military.
In what is now the second curious incident involving a Malaysian airlines flight, a Malaysian airlines Boeing 777 has crashed over Ukraine. The flight was traveling from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur with 295 people on board. The flight crashed in East Ukraine close to the Russian border.
The flight was allegedly downed by a missile.
According to USA Today “Anton Gerashenko, the adviser, says on his Facebook page the plane was flying at an altitude of 33,000 feet when it was hit Thursday by a missile fired from a BUK launcher, the Associated Press reports.”
AP Journalists are claiming to have seen a similar style missile in the eastern Ukrainian town of Snizhne on Thursday.
USA TODAY describes the BUK missile system, also known as the SA-17 GRIZZLY as “a mobile anti-aircraft system mounted usually on a tracked vehicle or truck that can simultaneously track and strike six targets flying from different directions and at different altitudes.”
Yet while the Western press is wasting no time to suggest that the plane was shot down either by Ukrainian separatists backed by Russia or even Russia itself, both the separatist leaders and the Russian government have denied any involvement in the downing of the plane.
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has also denied shooting down the plane.
It is not yet decidedly clear which forces would have actually had control over such types of missile launchers as the BUK system since the territory from where the missiles were allegedly launched is an active battlefield between Kiev fascists supported by NATO and Ukrainian separatists who are receiving support from Russia.
The Donetsk regional separatist government stated that the plane crashed near the village of Grabovo, a separatist-controlled area. However, the fact that the plane crashed near Grabovo does not indicate blame as to who fired missiles or if any missiles were indeed fired.
Separatists deny that their forces even have the capability to shoot down the Malaysian flight at the altitudes specified. Separatists are labeling the incident a “provocation by the Ukrainian military,” according to USA Today and the Russian Interfax news agency.
Alexander Boroday, Chairman of the Council of Ministers in the Republic of Donetsk stated that “Self-defense forces have no air-defense which could target transport aircraft at that height."
Russia’s military also claims that none of its military planes have flown close to the Russian-Ukrainian border on Thursday according to a report citing an unidentified military official by RIA Novosti.
Indeed, there is little evidence to suggest that the Ukrainian separatists have such missile launching capabilities. There has been no indication that separatists have seized this type of sophisticated military weaponry or that Russian has provided it to them.
However, there is evidence pointing toward the location of such missile launching systems in Ukraine.
According to ITAR-TASS, a Russian news agency, Ukraine’s armed forces actually moved the BUK anti-aircraft missile delivery system battalion to the area around the city of Donetsk on Wednesday. The source quoted by ITAR-TASS suggests that another battalion of the BUK missile launching system is being moved to the area of Kharkov, a city in East Ukraine but northwest of Donetsk.
The source also stated that a plane could only be shot down at 10,000 meters by a system that is at least as sophisticated as the BUK or S-300 missile systems.
The report states,
Ukraine’s armed forces dispatched the Buk anti-aircraft missile system battalion to the area of the city of Donetsk on Wednesday, a well-informed source said referring to the data recording system.
Another battalion of the same weapons is said to be in the process of embarkation in the city of Kharkiv, northwest of Donetsk, the source said adding that the aircraft at an altitude of over 10,000 meters could be shot down only with the weapons of the S-300 or Buk (Beech) missile systems.
Indeed, the BUK system, which requires transportation and mounting on a tracked vehicle or large truck, is not likely to be in the hands of rebels surviving on Russian small arms and other basic forms of military and tactical aid. BUK is much more the type of system that would be property of a national government.
MOSCOW, July 17. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s armed forces dispatched the Buk anti-aircraft missile system battalion to the area of the city of Donetsk on Wednesday, a well-informed source said referring to the data recording system.
Another battalion of the same weapons is said to be in the process of embarkation in the city of Kharkiv, northwest of Donetsk, the source said adding that the aircraft at an altitude of over 10,000 meters could be shot down only with the weapons of the S-300 or Buk (Beech) missile systems.
In the meantime, militias of the self-proclaimed republics of Donetsk and Luhansk have said they do not possess armament systems of this class.
Militias of the self-proclaimed republics in Ukraine's east are not armed with the Buk anti-aircraft missile systems, the press service of the self-proclaimed Luhansk People's Republic said in comments on the Ukrainian authorities' statements about a possible involvement of the Donetsk and Luhansk militias to the downing of the Malaysian plane.

WHO ARE THE JEWS OF ISRAEL?
The subject article goes into great detail as to whom those in Israel claiming ancestry back to Abraham, actually are. I have spoken often of American apathy. This apathy plays right into the hands of the imposters who have settled in Palestine as the “chosen people”. In order to sort through this, one must be able to define “chosen people” and “Israel”. It's not what most think.
The number one biblical verse used by Zionist Jews and Zionist Christians alike to justify dispossessing the Palestinians of their land is this one, Genesis 15:18:
‘On that day the LORD made a covenant with Abram and said, “To your descendants I give this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates….”
By descendants God definitely meant the same biological bloodline, the same DNA, actual grandchildren of Abraham. Not spiritual progeny. Unfortunately, as even a cursory study would show, the great majority of today’s Jews are not bloodline descendants of Abraham.
They are in fact the non-Semitic, non-Israelite Ashkenazim and Sephardim who in later times joined small numbers of different races that converted to Judaism: Polish, Russians, Ukrainians, Germans, etc. These latter ones form a minority known as European Jews who when coupled with the Ashkenazim constitute a majority against the darker-skinned Sephardic and African Jews. These European and African Jews are not of Abraham’s bloodline either.
However, it is very important to understand what the bible and history have to say about the majority of today’s Jews, the people known as Ashkenazim and Sephardim while bearing in mind that Abraham was a descendant of Shem – hence the term Semite or Shemite – and that his scion Jacob and his twelve sons were the true biblical Hebraic Israelite nation which no longer exists.
This is what the Bible has to say about the Ashkenazim:
“Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood.
2 The sons of Japheth: Gomer, and Magog, and Madai, and Javan, and Tubal, and Meshech, and Tiras.
3 And the sons of Gomer: ASHKENAZ, and Riphath, and Togarmah.
4 And the sons of Javan: Elishah, and Tarshish, Kittim, and Dodanim.
5 By these were the isles of the Gentiles divided in their lands; every one after his tongue, after their families, in their nations.” (Genesis 10: 1-5) (Emphasis Added)
Today’s Ashkenazi Jews, or descendants of Ashkenaz, are some of the GENTILES the bible speaks of. Why then do Ashkenazim call Christians and other non-Jews Gentiles while pinning on themselves the term Chosen People? Ignorance? Deception? Who knows? But, in their mind it’s pure re-branding. The ultimate Chutzpah!
Consider the terrible irony! A majority of Jews are themselves the Gentiles that many rabbis warn their congregation not to marry. To further the re-branding, they also call themselves Semites or Shemites when they’re JAPHETHITES which means they’re not Hebrews either. This re-branding is much like the way most of them – if not the majority of them – keep changing their last names every time they settle in a new country. The reason is simple and quite pragmatic. It’s a survival mechanism. The Ashkenazim are a resilient roaming Turkic people that keep reinventing themselves throughout history.
They first surfaced as the notoriously barbaric Scythians or Sakadeans depending on regional phonetic. The word Scythian or Sakadean comes from the word Saka – with its verbal root Sak meaning to roam. The Scythians settled Central Eurasia which they conquered with their Gentile brother Togarmath and various other cousins expanding across a vast track of land that encompassed but was not limited to parts of present day Turkey and Iran. Their Gentile brother Riphath along with their uncle Javan’s descendants settled in Greece.
Later on, the Ashkenazim went on to settle a land they would call Khazaria – from the word Qaz meaning to roam – following the break-up of the western Turkish Steppe Empire and where the country converted en masse to Judaism sometime between 740 and 920 AD just so they could remain independent of the two competing empires of that time: Christianity and Islam. Then the Russian Sviatoslav of Kiev destroyed Khazaria around 1048 and absorbed it into what would become the Russian Empire where they were kept under tight control and even oppressed. Something the Ashkenazim never forgave Russia.
Just think of the heinous Bolsheviks during the Soviet era who killed 66 million Russian Christians and destroyed thousands of churches according to famed Christian Russian writer Alexander Solzhenitsyn. Many of the Bolsheviks were Russian Jews such as Vladimir Lenin, Leon Trosky, Lev Kamenev, Gregory Zinoviev, Yakov Sverdlov and Grigory Sokolnikov and were financed by Ashkenazi bankers from New York and London such as Rothschild Bank, Jacob Schiff of Kuhn and Loeb & Co. who themselves championed the destructive ideology of the Ashkenazi Karl Marx and found it profitable to invest in Communism’s disastrous conquest of Russia while making a few bucks in the process by plundering the country via well placed agents who would later be known as ‘oligarchs’. Thus, they did fulfill in bringing Russia to its knees. Revenge Round 1 done.
Think also of the current Ukraine crisis initiated by the Ashkenazi Victoria Nuland in the US State Department with her neo-con Ashkenazi husband Robert Kagan working in the background via powerful organizations such as Project for a New American Century, the Brookings Institution and Council on Foreign Relations. The Ashkenazi George Soros also contributed financially to the Ukrainian Maidan ‘Revolution’. In the end their sole purpose is to destroy Russia once again because Russia has had the gall to rise from its still warm Ashkenazi-induced ashes and because Russia has had the temerity to arrest their well placed thieving agents known as ‘oligarchs’ with some fleeing the country. Revenge Round 2 in progress.
After the destruction of their last country, the Ashkenazim scattered throughout Russia and Europe and called themselves Errant Jews – meaning Roaming (Khazarian/Sakadean or Scythian) Jews. And that label had nothing to do with a longing for Palestine but a longing for Khazaria or perhaps a longing for a new land, any new land. Here’s an excerpt from Wikipedia:
In 1903 Theodore Herzl presented the British Uganda Program at the Sixth Zionist Congress in Basel.
In the late 1930s, the British Zionist League considered a number of other places where a Jewish homeland could be established. The Kimberley region in Australia was considered until the Curtin government (in office: 1941–1945) rejected the possibility.
With the support of the then Premier of Tasmania, Robert Cosgrove (in office from 1939), Critchley Parker proposed a Jewish settlement at Port Davey, in south west Tasmania. Parker surveyed the area, but his death in 1942 put an end to the idea.
The Jewish Autonomous Oblast set up in the Russian Far East in 1934, represented a Soviet approach to providing a Jewish homeland.
Now note that all these attempts were being orchestrated by mostly Ashkenazi Jews. Subsequently a great number reluctantly assimilated themselves throughout the Americas and Palestine now known as Israel. In their adoptive countries including Europe the Ashkenazim have become financial and influential powerhouses not because they’re Jews – at heart the majority of them are really not religious at all and could care less – but because they’re a smart and tough people who have learned much from their roaming throughout history. They assimilate themselves fast and hard. They’re the ultimate Nomads.
Now, could it be that, after two successive ideological failures in the forms of Communism and the current slow motion destruction of Zionism, somewhere deep inside the minds of die-hard Ashkenazi leaders lies a plan for a new re-invention? The re-conquest of their Khazar Khaganate maybe? A land that is now situated deep inside Russia and encompasses Ukraine and Crimea? Is that why Putin suddenly reattached Crimea to Russia? Will they be okay with just Ukraine? Revenge Round 3
? Jamais deux sans trois.
Sephardim is derived from the word Sephard or Sepharad. It appears only once in the Bible in a prophecy by Obadiah to Edom:
“And the captivity of this host of the children of Israel shall possess that of the Canaanites, even unto Zarephath; and the captivity of Jerusalem, which is in Sepharad, shall possess the cities of the south.” Obadiah 1:20
No one knows for certain where Sepharad was located. It is strongly believed that it was in Mede where Iran is today. Therefore, people from Sepharad were not descendants of Abraham either because the Medes of Northwest Iran were not Semites but Madaites, of Madai son of Japheth, uncle of Ashkenaz. Therefore the people from Sepharad or Madaites or Medes now know as Sephardic Jews are JAPHETHITES not Semites. This is why when Modern Israel was founded in 1948, the only Muslim countries to have recognized it first were the non-Semitic, non-Arab countries of Turkey and Iran because the people of these two countries share the same bloodline as both the Ashkenazim and the Sephardim. It would also explain why the biggest Jewish community in the Middle East outside the ‘non-existent’ ever-expanding borders of the modern Zionist state is in Iran where all of them refuse to emigrate to Israel since they consider themselves to be Iranians who just happen to be Jews instead of Muslims or Christians. Basically, the Iranian Jews did not buy into the brainwashing the other Jews who voluntarily relocated to Israel fell for.
The ancient Judahites of Jerusalem, Capital of the tribe and of the land/state of Judah, were in captivity in Sepharad, but the Lord had promised them deliverance which did occur in biblical times soon after Obadiah’s prophecy to Edom sometime in mid-fifth century B.C. So, the captive biblical Judahites in Sepharad did return to their homeland in Judah, one of the 7 lots of the Hebrew Kingdom (Joshua 14-19). However, many people from Sepharad converted to the religion of their ancient captives and many Judahites also stayed back mixing it up with the locals as was often the case throughout Biblical Israel’s history when God would send them into exile. Eventually, many Sephardic Jews emigrated. A lot of them went to Europe, especially to Spain and Portugal where they made a new home on the Iberian peninsula which was itself originally settled by Madai’s brother Tubal, also son of Japheth. Blood calls unto blood, doesn’t it?
It seems that people today have forgotten that Ancient Israel, unlike Modern Israel and much like Biblical Israel’s offspring, the Christian Church, was a proselytizing nation which wanted people all over the world to know and pray to the true God of the Universe. Let’s hear Jesus:
“Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves.” Matthew 23:15
When these folks converted, they didn’t miraculously become Hebrews. How could anyone? The people of Sepharad like all the others who converted to the religion of the ancient Judahites only professed to worship the God of Abraham and to adhere to the various rules of the faith. They maintained their own cultures and identities. Much like all the nations that converted to Christianity.
As a matter of fact, ‘Jew’ is not a biblical word. It is an indicative and descriptive term which points to someone who follows and adheres to the faith of the ancient Judahites. Much like those who believe in Christ are called Christians in honor of the one whom they follow. Nowhere in the Bible is the word Jew or Jewish uttered. In both the Old Testament Hebrew and the New Testament Greek the translated word is always meant to be Judahite(s), of the physical tribe and stock of Judah, not of the converted. The Bible translators hired by King James VI and I of England to produce the King James Bible are the ones who mistranslated Judahites as Jews since during that time ‘Jews’ were living in their midst and therefore erroneously thought these were the same people. All other bibles since then followed suit.
According to Jewish traditions, even the prophet Obadiah himself who prophesied about the ancient Judahites in Sepharad was a convert. He was an Edomite, not a Hebrew. Now, Edom was the brother of Jacob or Israel. His country was situated on portions of both present day Jordan and Palestine. So why did God pick an Edomite preacher and not a Hebrew one? Because God knows very well that a prophet is never accepted in his own home – ask Jesus. And because God wanted Edom to pay for what he had done to his brother Jacob He called on an Edomite prophet to warn them knowing the homegrown prophet would be rejected. Otherwise, he would have sent an Israelite like he did with Jonah the Hebrew in Nineveh (Modern Iraq) where they all repented to Jonah’s chagrin. As expected, Edom did not repent and suffered the consequences. But Judah did return home. God did the same thing to the Hebrews. He sent them one of their own, Jesus, so He could get revenge for all the prophets they had killed, Jesus included. But the Church was born.
Today many virulent Zionist Jews hate Arab Muslims, especially Palestinian Muslims, even though they both worship the same God, the God of Abraham, just like all Jews supposedly do and just like ancient converts by the Hebrews used to do. The converts of old used to live amongst the Hebrews with no problem. God even commanded it.
“If a stranger lives as a foreigner with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong. The stranger who lives as a foreigner with you shall be to you as the native-born among you, and you shall love him as yourself; for you lived as foreigners in the land of Egypt. I am Yahweh your God.” Leviticus 19:33-34
But modern-day Israeli leaders refuse co-existence because the whole conflict is about their thirst for land. And more land. One would think that because of the many similarities they have with the Muslims such as circumcision and the like and because of the fact that Judaism and Islam are – like Catholicism and Protestantism – two different branches of the same faith that the Zionists would concede to live in harmony. But they don’t want to. And that’s because it’s not about faith. It’s not about God and the Bible or God and His promises and commandments. It’s about land. And more land. They want the whole enchilada. The whole pie. It’s an Ashkenazi obsession which they have successfully spread to their co-religionists. And that obsession has turned an entire people toward a malignant racism that has morphed into an Apartheid system worse than the one that took shape in South Africa. So much so that the whole country is openly talking about the genocide of the Palestinians living among them, mistreating them or killing them or bombing them at will in the hope they will leave the land in disgust.
Ironically, though Islam and Judaism are similar in many ways, where they differ greatly is in their belief of who Jesus Christ was. Muslims believe that Jesus was born of the Holy Spirit and of the Virgin Mary, was a prophet to the ancient Israelites, was not crucified to death, went to heaven without dying and is expected to return soon. However, according to Talmudic Jews, Jesus was a demon-possessed liar who is now boiling in excrement in hell. From Wikipedia, according to the Talmud:
In Gittin 56b, 57a a story is mentioned in which Onkelos summons up the spirit of Yeshu [or Yeshua (Jesus)] who sought to harm Israel. He describes his punishment in the afterlife as boiling in excrement.
In addition, at the 1240 Disputation of Paris, Donin presented the allegation that the Talmud was blasphemous towards Mary, the mother of Jesus (“Miriam” in Hebrew) and this criticism has been repeated by many Christian sources. The texts cited by critics include Sanhedrin 67a, Sanhedrin 106a, and Shabbath 104b.
“Behold, I have set the land before you: go in and possess the land which the Lord swore unto your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, to give unto them and to their seed after them.” Deut 1:8
Sephardic and Ashkenazi Jews are not of the seed of Abraham and especially not of Jacob’s. European and African Jews are not either. Therefore they can’t be the Chosen People since they are not of the Semitic lineage of the 12 Hebrew tribes and for that matter can’t claim the inheritance of the land of Palestine which they have settled. In a just court of law, their self-ascribed right to hold on to the land would be thrown out. Besides, most religious Jews follow the man-inspired Talmud and not the God-inspired Old Testament where God’s promise and commandments are recorded. Only Torah Jews follow the Old Testament and most of them believe that Jews should not be occupying Palestine. They recognize only the current Palestinian government.
Furthermore, the seed of Jacob mentioned in the Bible is prophetically applied to seed, singular, which seed is Jesus Christ who was repeatedly called the Son of David, himself a descendant of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
At first glance, if anyone is to inherit Palestine, it should be Christians, spiritual descendants of Jesus, the seed of Jacob. That understanding was in fact used to execute the evil Crusades of the Middle Ages. Needless to say it is a perverted comprehension of what that particular inheritance means. The true Israel of God is now those who throughout the earth adhere to the New Covenant of Christ. They are called by the new name Christians. Their new promised land is the heavenly paradise promised to Christ’s true followers with their Capital city, the new Jerusalem, being from above. Hence, they are the new Chosen People. Chosen to love and to do good to all and not to lord over anyone.
“Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.” Revelations 3:12 (Emphasis Added)
So now when the Old Testament admonishes us to pray for the peace of Jerusalem, we must filter it through the New Covenant. It presently means ‘Pray for all Christians that they may overcome and be part of the peace of the new Jerusalem from above which is encompassed in the new promised land: heaven.’ God is working from a new script, not the obsolete one. Here’s the Apostle Paul’s conclusion on the First (Old) Covenant, Hebrews 8:13: “God has made the first obsolete!” And by the way, obsolete really means obsolete. Done. Kaput. Finito.
The so-called Christian pastors and teachers who impart that the Old Testament favoritism of one particular group of people still applies today do so only to spit and trample on the works of Christ. These wolves in sheep clothing who clamor the drivel that there are two covenants simultaneously at play are only digging themselves deep into hell’s volcanic fire. Christians, stay away from these men! For their whole purpose is to deny the work of Christ and his new covenant which is freely available to all the nations of the earth without respect to color, race, geographical demarcation or spiritual condition. In other words, they want to destroy the new covenant whose aim is to forge a spiritually egalitarian brotherhood of man throughout the earth with Jesus as the loving big brother.
If one is dead set on applying ancestry and racial stock as to who should inherit the land of Palestine, then the Arabs clearly win – the Palestinian Arabs to be more precise. For Arabs of the Middle East, which include cultural Arabs such as Chaldeans, Assyrians, Aramaics, Phoenicians and Syriacs, are the only living bloodline descendants of Abraham and the only true Semites, not converted Jews.
The Palestinian Arabs have inhabited the land for close to 2000 years since the destruction of Judah/Israel by Rome in AD 70. That famed destruction is known as the Apocalypse or Armageddon or the Great Tribulation or the End of the Age as prophesied by Christ Himself and by the Apostle John throughout the entire book of Revelations (see The Days of Vengeance and/or The Great Tribulation both by David Chilton for an in-depth expose). That particular destruction saw the end of the Hebrew race except for those converted to Christianity who fled the country before the great tribulation and massacre as recorded by Josephus in The Jewish War. If there are any Christian Hebrews left, they’d be cultural Arabs by now living in Syria, Lebanon, Jordan or Palestine. But chances are they’ve intermarried with other Semitic Christians in the area.
Before the End of the Age of the Hebrews, the entire exercise or raison d’être of the 12 chosen Biblical Tribes was just God’s way of nurturing a people so He could arrive on earth in the person of the Messiah Jesus. He distributed them across 7 lots throughout the land of Canaan (Joshua 14-19) and kept track of them through endless censuses even when they were in exile. That whole endeavor was God building Himself an earthly home and family for when He finally decided to visit. And once that was done, He loved it so much He decided He now wanted the entire human race to be His new family. To those Hebrews who accepted Him, he warned them to leave the land as judgment was about to fall on those who rejected and crucified Him – hence the Armageddon or the destruction of an entire people.
That is why today the 12 Hebrew Tribes are no longer around. And they can’t and won’t be ‘found’ either. God would have been very capable of keeping track of them as He has done before. Besides when was the last time you heard of a Jewish prophet whom God sent to anoint a King over modern Israel as He used to do in the old days? What of the animal sacrifices? What of the lamb to be killed and eaten during Passover like Jesus did when He established the new covenant with his disciples, a lamb that was killed and eaten in a private home? The sacrifice of the Passover Lamb in the Hebrew home was God’s very contract with each individual ancient Hebrew and that’s why Jesus repeated it with his disciples in order to introduce the new contract. Do today’s Jews kill a lamb for Passover in their own homes to keep the old contract alive? Is modern Israel divided into 7 lots as God directed Joshua with each tribe settling on his own parcel? Are the bloodline descendants of the Levites still around to restock a future Temple because no other Hebrew tribe can?
To today’s Jews – and the rest of the non-Christian world, Muslims included – we say come on over to Messiah Jesus’ side. It’s about time for true peace, the peace that passes all understanding. Leave obsolescence behind and join the spiritual brotherhood of mankind in Christ Jesus.
To all Israelis, we say denounce and renounce your Zionist leaders for just as they sold you out to Hitler and his 150,000 Jewish soldiers, they will sell you out once more to be butchered. Do not think for a minute that they have your best interest at heart. No government in the world has the best interest of their people at heart. Otherwise why have they led you into a country under false pretense and brainwashed you to hate all your Muslim neighbors when you are surrounded on all sides by these very neighbors? Where will you run to when all hell breaks loose? Into the sea? Isn’t that what they’ve been telling you over and over that ‘they’ want to run the Jews into the sea? By that meme they’re getting you accustomed to that very idea for when it actually happens. The sea is the only place where they have not created enemies for you and they would if they could. They want to watch you flail and drown while they fly away in their private jets to Switzerland after they have stolen all your money and transferred it to some tax haven only to reinvent themselves somewhere else. Ask George Soros how he did it during World War 2. If you still don’t believe it, then remember why and how you got to Palestine.
1900 years after that fateful event called The Apocalypse, Ashkenazi Zionists, under the same pretext as that used by the so called ‘Christian’ Crusaders, flooded into Palestine armed with terror and violence and backed by the imperial might of England. Many political analysts and historians of that time saw the Jewish invasion of Palestine as an English imperial project, this time using Zionist Jews as cannon fodder much like Zionist ‘Christians’ were used during the Middle Ages when the Europeans’ goal was to plunder the area and control the Mediterranean.
Now, the English empire wanted a beachhead to keep the Middle East in turmoil and divided so as to conquer and control the Arabs who control the oil while keeping their own hands on the wells’ spigots. It was a mutually beneficial arrangement: the Ashkenazim got their land and the Empire got an outpost. But, the empire not only wanted to keep the Arabs divided, they also wanted to Keep Israeli society divided and weak. So the Israeli leaders delivered: Ashkenazim and European Jews discriminate against Sephardic and African Jews as Ashkenazim and European Jews control most everything in the country – Russian Jews who mostly are pretend Jews escaped the Soviet Union courtesy of the US and now constitute a fifth column – Orthodox Jews hate all the non-religious Jews and vice versa – Israeli Arabs are kept as third-class citizens with Sephardic and North African Jews as second class and Black African Jews as no class – Most Israeli Jews hate the Palestinians either in the occupied territories or within Israel itself and would love to excise them from the land while the Palestinians under the weight of over 60 years of occupation would love to see the Jews finally leave so they could become free of Apartheid. To say the whole country is a mess is an understatement.
Unfortunately today, imperial America is somewhat loosely controlling this Sparta-like project called Israel. And they’re doing so without regard for the people in the region and what it will cost innocent Jews, Muslims and Christians. The time is fast approaching when Israel will no longer be of use to a defunct imperial power. That’s how it was in the past and that’s how it’ll be soon. And frankly the empire is not the real culprit here. That’s how empires always act especially after they collapse. Use and discard. Besides, how many times did America try to coax Israel into making peace and Israel’s leaders always turned intransigent? There are so many times you can bite the hand that feeds you, especially if the feeding is to the tune of billions of dollars a year.
The mostly Ashkenazim and European Zionist leaders are to blame. There are too many red flags. Have they forgotten the stain that the Crusades left on Christianity? Do they not remember how the Christian Crusades ended? Have they no knowledge of history to understand how empire after empire lost Palestine? Do they even ask themselves what their own Crusade will leave behind this time? Have they not witnessed what happened to Apartheid South Africa? And most importantly why do they not make a just and lasting peace with all of their neighbors even if they lose considerable land? Isn’t peace better? Frankly, these leaders don’t give a hoot.
Together with imperial America, the Zionist leaders have ignited the suffering of millions of innocents, Christians and Muslims, who are presently living in torment not only in Palestine but throughout the Middle East. This has been orchestrated in order to create a cauldron they hope to pour on all the inhabitants of the area, Israelis included.
CONCLUSION: A LOOK BEHIND THE SCENES
“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Ephesians 6:12
The Beast Satan is hell-bent on making the land of Palestine suffer for having brought about Jesus, the Prince of Peace. He’s been tormenting that land for over 2000 years with the ultimate goal of punishing Abraham’s only biological descendants, the Arabs. That’s his way of trying to eliminate that entire bloodline so as to remove any physical vestige of the kinsmen of the One who beat him on the cross. He sees these Arabs, especially the Arab Christians, as representing a line in the sand, a true embodiment of the obsolete First Covenant which Satan cleverly used to kill Christ but is now rendered void by the resurrected Messiah. By somewhat ‘reconstructing’ the First Covenant on its original land he has pushed the Middle East on the edge of the abyss in order to deplete the area of Christians and to kill as many real Semites as he can. All these interminable conflicts are causing Christians to leave in droves and destroying the future of millions. And if you still doubt the hate that has been carefully nurtured and managed against Arabs, especially in the past decades, then you’ve been living in a hole.
To Satan’s horror when Jesus rose from the dead, that old cunning Dragon started running amok. He realized he had been defeated. He thought he could kill God on earth so he could run the show. And just like he deceived the Ancient Hebrew leaders into killing Christ, he’s now playing the Ashkenazim leaders like a fiddle – he’s the real fiddler on the region’s roof. No peace. Just endless war. After all peace reminds him of the Prince of Peace. Can’t have that. So now, he has his eyes set on bringing his play to the next level: finish off the real Semites and devour the Western world which Christian civilization has brought about. And the way he wants to proceed is through a major nuclear war he hopes to start in the Middle East. Basically kill two birds with one stone.
But to make the war real big and engulf all Christendom he has to involve the Ashkenazim’s arch nemesis: Russia, which holds an arsenal of about 8,000 nuclear missiles. And the way to do that is through Syria or Iran since they both have a mutual defense pact while at the same time setting fire in Russia’s underbelly, Ukraine, hoping the fire will spread throughout Russia, Europe and the US. But even Satan knows this is something the Israelis can’t bring to fruition by themselves. So better get the Israelis’ slaves to do it. In other words, better goad the Russian bear by wagging the American dog. The dog can’t really say no because AIPAC has got it by the balls. And remember, AIPAC is controlled by powerful Ashkenazim-American business leaders. Are you getting the full picture now?
This future nuclear war Satan wants so bad is being called World War 3 or the War to End all Wars. A war that would leave the Middle East and the Western world in nuclear ashes. That’s why Satan’s demon-possessed mammonish minions and warmongers are endlessly blabbing in the mainstream media about defense spending, terrorists, preemptive wars, war on terror and nuclear first strikes. But wait, there might still be hope. We can change things. Remember how we stalled the last attempted American attack on Syria which was planned and pushed by AIPAC? We can still have the victory. Unless you sit and do nothing. Then this would kick in: WW3. Jamais deux sans trois.
“And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.” Revelations 15:2

GEORGE GALLOWAY EXPOSES THE SHAME OF AMERICA
This is hard to listen to, especially for someone like myself who was raised to admire America as the land of the free and the home of the brave. We believed that America was there to be a shining light to a world embroiled in darkness. We fought for the little guy, opposed tyranny and were available to help wherever help was needed.
It's not easy to let a British MP lecture us on the atrocities of Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan and other nations. It's not easy to accept the fact that the U.S. government not only does not fight for freedom, but most often opposes it. It's not easy to be confronted with millions of dead at our hands over the years.
Most Americans do not want to see this. Apathy is our refuge. If we don't see it or hear it, then it doesn't exist. It is that apathy which is responsible for a government gone insane. It's that apathy which has doomed America to the same fate as Rome, Greece, Egypt, Germany and the Soviet Union. As we study those past empires, it becomes more and more difficult to see how we are different. Well, I suppose we can sing God Bless America or chant “USA” over and over again. Yeah, that will make it all O.K.
RUSSIA THREATENS MILITARY RESPONSE AGAINST UKRAINE
The Ukraine civil war has spilled over on to Russian territory as the Army of Ukraine has shelled Russian territory. 1 resident was killed and 2 were injured in the attack. This is a difficult situation for President Putin and the Russian government. They have done their best to stay out of this civil war as sooner or later this Ukraine junta is bound to fail.
Maybe that's why the government in Kiev is doing all they can to provoke a Russian response. To be sure, Ukraine would have no chance whatsoever, of prevailing in a military war with Russia, but maybe they are hoping for a wider war. If Russia responds militarily, NATO may also become involved. Of course NATO means the United States.
So, if these “insaniacs” get their wish, it could lead to that nuclear war these nuts want. Maybe there's no way out. As I have said many times, the American public seems like they will put up with anything. I guess that includes a nuclear war, but---- would a nuclear war disrupt TV shows, or baseball or football or basketball or movies or gaming or texting? Now we're talking about a disaster.

Russia doesn't rule out 'selective' strikes on Ukraine – media reports
Moscow is considering a possibility of "pinpoint strikes" on Ukraine to retaliate against the bombardment of suburbs of Donetsk, Rostov region, Kommersant daily said, citing a source close to the Kremlin. The source said Russia "knew exactly where the gunfire was coming from." He noted that would not be a massive action but pinpoint strikes on the positions from where they were firing on Russia.
A similar idea has been suggested by Federation Council Vice-Speaker Yevgeny Bushmin, a representative of the Rostov region. In his opinion, precision weapons are able to stop shooting from the Ukrainian side.
The suburbs of Donetsk, Rostov region, came under fire early on Sunday morning when the Ukrainian army and the militia were fighting for control over the Izvaryno border checkpoint. A shell fired from Ukraine blew up in the yard of 47, Baltiyskaya Street. The explosion killed local resident Andrei Shulyatyev born in 1967.
Another shell hit a nearby house and injured a mother and a daughter. The 82-year-old woman was taken to a hospital. Her condition is serious: she has bone fractures and a concussion.
The Russian Foreign Ministry summoned Ukraine's charge d'affaires in Russia on Sunday to present a strong protest over the shelling of Russian territory from the Ukrainian side of the border. The incident may have "irreversible consequences," the ministry warned in an official statement released on Sunday. Russia regards Sunday's provocation as "yet another act of aggression on the part of Ukraine against sovereign Russian territory and citizens of the Russian Federation," the statement says.
Earlier, shells fired from Ukrainian side hit several houses in the border town of Donetsk in Russia's southern Rostov region, killing one person and injuring two others.
Russia is considering a tough response in the wake of a shooting incident in its southern Rostov region where a shell fired from the Ukrainian side of the border hit a house, killing one person, Deputy Foreign Miniser Grigory Karasin said on Sunday.
"We are investigating the incident. It's a sign of a dangerous rise in tension on the border. This is a qualitatively higher degree of danger to our citizens… Therefore, our demarches will be tough and precise. But first, we need to clarify all the circumstances of the incident," the diplomat said.
On Sunday morning, one person was killed and two others wounded after shells fired from the Ukrainian side hit several houses in the town of Donetsk in Russia's southern Rostov region, bordering Ukraine.
Russia's Investigative Committee has launched a criminal case in relation to the death of a man in the Donetsk district of the Rostov region after a shell from Ukrainian territory exploded, spokesman for the committee Vladimir Markin told Interfax on Sunday.
The investigative department of the committee for the Southern Federal District launched a criminal group murder enquiry into the case of two or more persons acting in a manner dangerous to the public, he said.
The subject picture shows some Israelis watching the bombardment of Gaza from a hilltop as they picnic. Yesterday, I posted a few verses from the Talmud describing Palestinians (and all non Jews) as animals, among other things. Apparently, those who seek an entertaining evening, can add the killing of non Jews, to the merriment.
I have paid careful attention to the media coverage of this military adventure. They make it a point to draw attention to the “rockets” fired from Palestinian controlled areas. It should be pointed out that these “rockets” are junk. They often explode in mid air and have yet to kill a single Israeli.
I have also posted a quick synopsis of Israel military strength. Keep in mind the Palestinians have no aircraft, no tanks, no space age missiles, no nuclear weapons, no official army, no phosphorous
warheads, no depleted uranium munitions and no navy. So, of course, it makes perfect sense that they would want to start a war with Israel.

Last month 3 teenagers were found murdered in Israel. There is no conclusive evidence as to who did it. The story from the Israeli government has been brought into question as there are many contradictions, yet that government has chosen to go on a killing rampage in Gaza.
Those of us who have been educated in the U.S. school system, have all learned about the Holocaust committed by elements within the government in Nazi Germany. These events were a main impetus for the formation of what is now called, Israel. Because of those events those residing in Israel have been given special consideration not available to the vast majority of those residing in other nations. The Israel government is given billions of dollars in aid as well as state of the art military weapons. The State of Israel has been allowed to develop and deploy between 400 and 600 nuclear weapons. The State of Israel has been allowed to ignore scores of UN resolutions. The State of Israel has been allowed to avoid signing the international nuclear proliferation treaty.
On top of all of that, the State of Israel has been allowed to shell, bomb, oppress and attack civilians in the West Bank and Gaza for any reason they want. Of course, Israel always claims they are provoked. In this latest case, even if some in Gaza killed these boys ( and there is no evidence whatsoever that it happened that way), is it right to launch attacks on hundreds of thousand of civilians? There is much more to say, but let me add this: As a Christian and as an American, It was not my intention to enable the new nation state of Israel to become the new Nazis of the middle east. As despicable as the actions of the Nazis were in the 1930's and 1940's, the actions of the Israeli government is no better. Murder is murder and racism is racism --- no matter who does it.
A View from Gaza: We Hug the Children as the Bombs Fall
GAZA – Written Between 3 am and 4 am early Wednesday morning, July 9, 2014.
I do not know what is going on and I can hear successive bombing. I am thinking of all the people I know tonight, especially my colleagues at the hospitals who are working under severe pressure and lacking basic medical supplies. Stay strong.
I heard they bombed the area around the European hospital east of Khan Younis in Southern Gaza… Then the hospital was directly targeted. The hospital wall was damaged at 1 am due to the strong shelling. Then shelling continued with approximately 30 airstrikes.
Israeli forces killed six children when a missile struck a residential building in the southern Gaza city of Khan Younis on Wednesday, July 9, 2014. (Photo: Defense of Children International-Palestine)
When civilians took refuge at the hospital, they targeted it again.
The roof of the intensive care unit was damaged and the windows were blown out. Now at around 3 am, six patients inside the intensive care unit and 20 children inside the pediatric ward have had to be evacuated.
At the hospital, two injuries were reported, including one nurse.
I do not have any comment… I leave it to you to comment. For me, this is nothing new. This is normal behavior of the Israeli army.
Human rights violations against health centers and workers have always been the case when Israel invades.
On a personal level, I am thinking of all people, especially my cousins, who took refuge in the hospital.
At 4:15 am, there were explosions very close to my apartment. The Gaza port was just hit with at one least bomb. Nobody in Palestine is asleep tonight.
Oh no! It is next to my building, so loud I am on the floor with neighbors and children, who are so terrified and shocked.
Shattered windows terrify the children… These are vicious attacks… We are all on the floor.
An hour later, we hug each other while the children cling to adults… The bombs are so close.
Now, after a few minutes, I distract the neighbors’ kids by showing some nice drawings sent with love and solidarity from Canada and Australia. The children laugh. I say, at this moment life is stronger than death. One day justice will prevail.

Sarah Palin: 'It's Time to Impeach' President Obama
Wow! I actually agree with Sara Palin. This, in itself, is a miracle. The subject covers the massive influx of illegal aliens promoted by the Obama administration. Just today, the President asked for almost $4 billion dollars to cover some of these expenses. What he didn't cover is the fact that we don't have $4 billion dollars. We, as a nation, are trillions of dollars in debt. That debt increases by over $2 billion dollars a day. And that's without this latest adventure.
Having said all this and taking in the comments by Sara Palin, this Congress will never impeach Obama. It doesn't matter what he does, they won't do it. Most of them are criminals themselves, including most of Palin's Republican contemporaries. They only answer is “They have to go”, all of them. This includes the upper level bureaucrats and the Supreme Court. Once they go, we can have new elections under the Constitution, forbidding current office holders from participating.
Before you roll your eyes on this, remember 2 things. This solution was called for in the Declaration of Independence and was later endorsed by Thomas Jefferson. The second thing to remember is, what if we don't get rid of them? That answer is easy. The United States collapses, bedlam ensues, millions die and this, once great nation goes on to the ash heap of history. Now, which path should we take?
Conservative icon Sarah Palin wrote an op-ed for Breitbart in which she criticizes Obama?s stance on illegal immigration. She said: ?Without borders, there is no nation. Obama knows this. Opening our...
Enough is enough of the years of abuse from this president. His unsecured border crisis is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, “no mas.”
Without borders, there is no nation. Obama knows this. Opening our borders to a flood of illegal immigrants is deliberate. This is his fundamental transformation of America. It’s the only promise he has kept. Discrediting the price paid for America’s exceptionalism over our history, he’s given false hope and taxpayer’s change to millions of foreign nationals who want to sneak into our country illegally. Because of Obama’s purposeful dereliction of duty an untold number of illegal immigrants will kick off their shoes and come on in, competing against Americans for our jobs and limited public services. There is no end in sight as our president prioritizes parties over doing the job he was hired by voters to do. Securing our borders is obviously fundamental here; it goes without saying that it is his job.
The federal government is trillions of dollars in debt; many cities are on the verge of insolvency; our overrun healthcare system, police forces, social services, schools, and our unsustainably generous welfare-state programs are stretched to the max. We average Americans know that. So why has this issue been allowed to be turned upside down with our “leader” creating such unsafe conditions while at the same time obstructing any economic recovery by creating more dependents than he allows producers? His friendly wealthy bipartisan elite, who want cheap foreign labor and can afford for themselves the best “border security” money can buy in their own exclusive communities, do not care that Obama tapped us out.
Have faith that average American workers – native-born and wonderful legal immigrants of all races, backgrounds, and political parties – do care because we’re the ones getting screwed as we’re forced to follow all our government’s rules while others are not required to do so. Many now feel like strangers in their own land. It’s the American worker who is forced to deal with Obama’s latest crisis with our hard-earned tax dollars while middle class wages decrease, sustainable jobs get more scarce, and communities become unrecognizable and bankrupted due to Obama’s flood of illegal immigration.
Who’s looking out for the American workers? Who has their backs? Who fights for them?
President Obama’s rewarding of lawlessness, including his own, is the foundational problem here. It’s not going to get better, and in fact irreparable harm can be done in this lame-duck term as he continues to make up his own laws as he goes along, and, mark my words, will next meddle in the U.S. Court System with appointments that will forever change the basic interpretation of our Constitution’s role in protecting our rights.
It’s time to impeach; and on behalf of American workers and legal immigrants of all backgrounds, we should vehemently oppose any politician on the left or right who would hesitate in voting for articles of impeachment.
The many impeachable offenses of Barack Obama can no longer be ignored. If after all this he’s not impeachable, then no one is.

CURRENT MAP OF IMMIGRANT INVASION
The subject article, video and map covers the different places around the U.S. where illegal aliens are being located or are attempted to be located.
The question remains, What will Americans tolerate from their government masters? The answer remains, ANYTHING. We keep hoping that Americans by the millions will demonstrate they are fed up. Indeed, as the video shows, some pockets of resistance to the current invasion of illegals are beginning to spring up.
Where in history, is there an example of blatant lawlessness on the part of the federal government? Yes, there are some things out there, like the antics of Richard Nixon, but that was exposed and dealt with. As near as I can tell, the events of the past 10 or 15 years are the first of its' kind in American history --- and it keeps getting worse. Maybe this last fiasco will do it. I hope so.

They are released into these cities, given a slip of paper ordering them to appear in court at some future date, and of course the vast majority of them never show up. Essentially, the Obama administration is seeding illegal immigrants in communities all over America knowing full well that the system is going to end up losing track of almost all of them. The following map shows the cities where the federal government has been relocating illegal immigrants.
I have posted that famous Patrick Henry speech below. As you read this, take a minute to ask what politician, representative, Senator, Congressman, Governor or other bureaucrat, has made such a speech today? Patrick Henry wasn't alone. He was typical of those back then. So sad that it is completely absent today.
We can get nostalgic for the days when “America” was made up of Americans, but such is the inevitable descent of all empires.

Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Death
Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775.
No man thinks more highly than I do of the patriotism, as well as abilities, of the very worthy gentlemen who have just addressed the House. But different men often see the same subject in different lights; and, therefore, I hope it will not be thought disrespectful to those gentlemen if, entertaining as I do opinions of a character very opposite to theirs, I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve. This is no time for ceremony. The questing before the House is one of awful moment to this country. For my own part, I consider it as nothing less than a question of freedom or slavery; and in proportion to the magnitude of the subject ought to be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.
Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.
I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past. And judging by the past, I wish to know what there has been in the conduct of the British ministry for the last ten years to justify those hopes with which gentlemen have been pleased to solace themselves and the House. Is it that insidious smile with which our petition has been lately received? Trust it not, sir; it will prove a snare to your feet. Suffer not yourselves to be betrayed with a kiss. Ask yourselves how this gracious reception of our petition comports with those warlike preparations which cover our waters and darken our land. Are fleets and armies necessary to a work of love and reconciliation? Have we shown ourselves so unwilling to be reconciled that force must be called in to win back our love? Let us not deceive ourselves, sir. These are the implements of war and subjugation; the last arguments to which kings resort. I ask gentlemen, sir, what means this martial array, if its purpose be not to force us to submission? Can gentlemen assign any other possible motive for it? Has Great Britain any enemy, in this quarter of the world, to call for all this accumulation of navies and armies? No, sir, she has none. They are meant for us: they can be meant for no other. They are sent over to bind and rivet upon us those chains which the British ministry have been so long forging. And what have we to oppose to them? Shall we try argument? Sir, we have been trying that for the last ten years. Have we anything new to offer upon the subject? Nothing. We have held the subject up in every light of which it is capable; but it has been all in vain. Shall we resort to entreaty and humble supplication? What terms shall we find which have not been already exhausted? Let us not, I beseech you, sir, deceive ourselves. Sir, we have done everything that could be done to avert the storm which is now coming on. We have petitioned; we have remonstrated; we have supplicated; we have prostrated ourselves before the throne, and have implored its interposition to arrest the tyrannical hands of the ministry and Parliament. Our petitions have been slighted; our remonstrances have produced additional violence and insult; our supplications have been disregarded; and we have been spurned, with contempt, from the foot of the throne! In vain, after these things, may we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation. There is no longer any room for hope. If we wish to be free-- if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending--if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained--we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of hosts is all that is left us!
They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. The millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable--and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come.
It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace-- but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!
The subject article puts forth this question in comparing the choice made in 1776 by our ancestors, to today. Sadly, we Americans are only a faint shadow of those who led our move to independence in 1776 and the war of independence thereafter.
Victor Hugo said “Adversity makes men, and prosperity makes monsters”. We, in America, have been blessed with unrivaled prosperity over the past 150 years. Instead of using these blessings to create a better society, we have used it to create decadence. The spirit of 1776 is gone. Most in America don't even know what it stands for. This 4th of July, we are being treated to one military display after another, as if that is what 1776 was all about.
Quite the contrary. In the Declaration of Independence, courageous men publicly proclaimed their opposition to this type of military empire and being subject to it. They backed up their opposition with everything they had – their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor. Even as recently as 50 years ago, hundreds of thousands of Americans took to the streets to oppose the military empire and coming police state being created then. They succeeded, albeit temporarily. Today, as the police state has reared its' ugly head, today's Americans can barely muster a whimper. This is why nations fail. More often than not, they don't get conquered from outside, they rot from the inside.

238 Years Later, Would Americans Still Choose Freedom Over Slavery?
Imagine living in a country where armed soldiers crash through doors to arrest and imprison citizens merely for criticizing government officials. Imagine that in this very same country, you’re watched all the time, and if you look even a little bit suspicious, the police stop and frisk you or pull you over to search you on the off chance you’re doing something illegal. Keep in mind that if you have a firearm of any kind while in this country, it may get you arrested and, in some circumstances, shot by police.
If you’re thinking this sounds like America today, you wouldn’t be far wrong. However, the scenario described above took place more than 200 years ago, when American colonists suffered under Great Britain’s version of an early police state. It was only when the colonists finally got fed up with being silenced, censored, searched, frisked, threatened, and arrested that they finally revolted against the tyrant’s fetters.
No document better states their grievances than the Declaration of Independence. A document seething with outrage over a government which had betrayed its citizens, the Declaration of Independence was signed on July 4, 1776, by 56 men who laid everything on the line, pledged it all—“our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor”—because they believed in a radical idea: that all people are created to be free.
Labeled traitors, these men were charged with treason, a crime punishable by death. For some, their acts of rebellion would cost them their homes and their fortunes. For others, it would be the ultimate price—their lives. Yet even knowing the heavy price they might have to pay, these men dared to speak up when silence could not be tolerated. Even after they had won their independence from Great Britain, these new Americans worked to ensure that the rights they had risked their lives to secure would remain secure for future generations. The result: our Bill of Rights, the first ten amendments to the Constitution.
Imagine the shock and outrage these 56 men would feel were they to discover that 238 years later, the government they had risked their lives to create has been transformed into a militaristic police state in which exercising one’s freedoms is often viewed as a flagrant act of defiance. Indeed, had the Declaration of Independence been written today, it would have rendered its signers terrorists, resulting in them being placed on a government watch list, targeted for surveillance of their activities and correspondence, and potentially arrested, held indefinitely, stripped of their rights and labeled enemy combatants.
The First Amendment is supposed to protect the freedom to speak your mind and protest in peace without being bridled by the government. It also protects the freedom of the media, as well as the right to worship and pray without interference. In other words, Americans cannot be silenced by the government. Yet despite the clear protections found in the First Amendment, the freedoms described therein are under constant assault. Whether it’s a Marine detained for criticizing the government on Facebook, a reporter persecuted for refusing to reveal his sources, or a protester arrested for standing silently in front of the U.S. Supreme Court, these are dangerous times for those who choose to exercise their rights.
The Second Amendmentwas intended to guarantee “the right of the people to keep and bear arms.” Yet while gun ownership has been recognized as an individual citizen right, Americans continue to face an uphill battle in the courts when it comes to defending themselves against militarized, weaponized government agents armed to the hilt. In fact, court rulings in recent years have affirmed that citizens don’t have the right to resist police officers who enter their homes illegally, mistakenly or otherwise.
The Third Amendment reinforces the principle that civilian-elected officials are superior to the military by prohibiting the military from entering any citizen’s home without “the consent of the owner.” Unfortunately, the wall of separation between civilian and military policing has been torn down in recent years, as militarized SWAT teams are now allowed to burst into homes unannounced in order to investigate minor crimes such as marijuana possession and credit card fraud. With domestic police increasingly posing as military forces—complete with weapons, uniforms, assault vehicles, etc.—a good case could be made for the fact that SWAT team raids constitute the forced quartering of soldiers within the private home, which the Third Amendment was written to prevent.
The Fourth Amendment prohibits government agents from touching you or placing you under surveillance or entering your property without probable cause and even then, only with a court-sanctioned warrant. Unfortunately, the Fourth Amendment has been all but eviscerated in recent years by court rulings and government programs that sanction all manner of intrusions, including giving police carte blanche authority to break into homes or apartments without a warrant, conduct roadside strip searches, and generally manhandle any person in manner they see fit. Moreover, in the so-called name of national security, intelligence agencies like the National Security Agency now have the ability to conduct mass unwarranted electronic intrusions into the personal and private transactions of all Americans, including phone, mail, computer and medical records. All of this data is available to other government agencies, including local police.
The Fifth Amendment is supposed to ensure that you are innocent until proven guilty, and government authorities cannot deprive you of your life, your liberty or your property without following strict legal guidelines. Unfortunately, those protections have been largely extinguished in recent years, especially in the wake of Congress’ passage of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which allows the president and the military to arrest and detain Americans indefinitely without due process.
The Sixth Amendment was intended to not only ensure a “speedy and public trial,” but it was supposed to prevent the government from keeping someone in jail for unspecified offenses. That too has been a casualty of the so-called war on terror. Between the NDAA’s indefinite detention clause and the Authorization to Use Military Force (AUMF) legislation, which has been used as justification for using drones to kill American citizens in the absence of a court trial, the Sixth Amendment’s guarantees become meaningless.
The Seventh Amendmentguarantees citizens the right to a jury trial. However, when the populace has no idea of what’s in the Constitution—civic education has virtually disappeared from most school curriculums—that inevitably translates to an ignorant jury incapable of distinguishing justice and the law from their own preconceived notions and fears.
The Eighth Amendment is similar to the Sixth in that it is supposed to protect the rights of the accused and forbid the use of cruel and unusual punishment. However, the Supreme Court’s determination that what constitutes “cruel and unusual” should be dependent on the “evolving standards of decency that mark the progress of a maturing society” leaves us with little protection in the face of a society lacking in morals altogether. America’s continued reliance on the death penalty, which has been shown to be flawed in its application and execution, is a perfect example of this.
The Ninth Amendment provides that other rights not enumerated in the Constitution are nonetheless retained by the people. Popular sovereignty—the belief that the power to govern flows upward from the people rather than downward from the rulers—is clearly evident in this amendment. However, it has since been turned on its head by a centralized federal government that sees itself as supreme and which continues to pass more and more laws that restrict our freedoms under the pretext that it has an “important government interest” in doing so. Thus, once the government began violating the non-enumerated rights granted in the Ninth Amendment, it was only a matter of time before it began to trample the enumerated rights of the people, as explicitly spelled out in the rest of the Bill of Rights.
As for the Tenth Amendment’s reminder that the people and the states retain every authority that is not otherwise mentioned in the Constitution, that assurance of a system of government in which power is divided among local, state and national entities has long since been rendered moot by the centralized Washington, DC power elite—the president, Congress and the courts. Indeed, the federal governmental bureaucracy has grown so large that it has made local and state legislatures relatively irrelevant. Through its many agencies, the federal government has stripped states of the right to regulate countless issues that were originally governed at the local level.
Thus, even on those rare occasions when the courts provide us with a slight glimmer of hope that all may not be lost, those brief reprieves of judicial sensibility are quickly overwhelmed by a bureaucratic machine that continues to march relentlessly in lockstep with the police state.
This brings me back to those 56 men who risked everything—their fortunes and their lives—to speak truth to power in that sweltering Philadelphia heat 238 summers ago. Of those 56 signers, 9 died during the Revolution, 5 were captured by British soldiers, 18 had their homes looted and burned by the Red Coats, 2 were wounded in battle and 2 lost their sons during the war. Remarkably, these men—who were community leaders, business owners, judges, lawyers and inventors—sacrificed their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor so that you and I could live freely in a nation where we have the right to stand up and speak out against tyrannical government. In the face of torture and even death, they did not waver.
The choice before us is clear. In the words of Patrick Henry, will we choose dangerous freedom or peaceful slavery?

COLLECT WATER IN A BARREL? GO TO JAIL.
Ridiculous? In America? Guess again. An Oregon man is going to jail for collecting rain water on his own property. The U.S. now has more people in prison than any other country on earth. That includes China--- population 1.5 billion, and India---population 1 billion. There are so many laws on the books in the U.S., that no one actually knows how many there are or what they are, but rest assured, every day you break the law.
I have repeatedly asked how much Americans will tolerate. Apparently, there is no limit. For our government masters, anything goes. Kill, steal and destroy, it's all good now for those in power, and we here, will do absolutely nothing about it.
So where does it end? Knowing the apathy of the average American, we cannot even see the bottom.

Man Sentenced to 30 Days for Catching Rain Water on Own Property Enters Jail

(CNSNews.com) – Gary Harrington, the Oregon man convicted of collecting rainwater and snow runoff on his rural property surrendered Wednesday morning to begin serving his 30-day, jail sentence in Medford, Ore.
“I’m sacrificing my liberty so we can stand up as a country and stand for our liberty,” Harrington told a small crowd of people gathered outside of the Jackson County (Ore.) Jail.
Several people held signs that showed support for Harrington as he was taken inside the jail.
Harrington was found guilty two weeks ago of breaking a 1925 law for having, what state water managers called “three illegal reservoirs” on his property. He was convicted of nine misdemeanors, sentenced to 30 days in jail and fined over $1500 for collecting rainwater and snow runoff on his property.

The Oregon Water Resources Department, claims that Harrington has been violating the state’s water use law by diverting water from streams running into the Big Butte River.
But Harrington says he is not diverting the state's water -- merely collecting rainwater and snow melt that falls or flows on his own property.
Harrington has vowed to continue to fight the penalty, stating that the government has become “big bullies” and that “from here on in, I’m going to fight it.”
“They’ve just gotten to be big bullies and if you just lay over and die and give up, that just makes them bigger bullies, Harrington said in an interview two weeks ago with CNSNews.com.
"We as Americans, we need to stand on our constitutional rights, on our rights as citizens and hang tough. This is a good country, we’ll prevail,” he said.
So much has happened in such a short span of time, it’s hard to keep up. We move as a society from one scandal to another so quickly these days, the last one barely had time to make a mark in the collective conscious before the next one hits.
Someone is killing this country. The video at the bottom of this article illustrates this well enough, with astounding examples from just the past few days in America. Watch it; see for yourself.
Tens of thousands of immigrants are now flooding the southern border of the United States. The mainstream media is throwing around the buzz term “humanitarian crisis” as if they get a cookie every time they say it, no doubt causing Bilderberg’s Peter Sutherland, United Nations Special Representative of the Secretary-General (SRSG) for International Migration, to lick his chops.
Sutherland not only sits on the Bilderberg Steering Committee, but he served both as the last GATT director-general and the first WTO director-general. He is an Honorary Chairman of the Trilateral Commission, a non-executive Chairman of Goldman Sachs International, and a former non-executive Chairman of BP until he resigned less than a year before the oil spill. Funny that even though he has held his current position with the U.N. regarding migration since 2006, this year in particular was the first year Bilderberg listed it (over all others, including Goldman Sachs) behind his name on the official attendee list.
In the mean time, the media continues to beg someone, somewhere…anyone (nudge nudge, wink wink) to please intervene in the burgeoning humanitarian crisis inundating our southern border. Many of the immigrants coming up through the U.S.-Mexico border are children from Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras. No one is really discussing how they are so easily navigating through Mexico unscathed to wind up at our border in the first place. If they were Mexican immigrants, they would just be turned around and sent back. Because they come from elsewhere, the Office of Refugee Resettlement is required to intervene, thus tripping a multi-step deportation process only designed to handle about 8,000 children, not the 90,000 that are predicted to try and cross (52,000 of which already have).
Are they coming to escape the harrowing violence in their countries? Surely the trip through Mexico, wrought with everything from vicious drug cartels to corrupt officials, isn’t exactly like taking a tram through Disneyland either. According to a report by One News Now, U.S. Rep. Louie Gohmert, who recently took a Texas Department of Safety helicopter over the Rio Grande, said it wasn’t violence these children were fleeing from:
While on the border, Gohmert said he discovered that few of the young children came to the United States for the reasons liberal Democrats have been touting.
“None of the people they were processing when I was there ever responded that, Oh gee, they’re trying to escape murder, they’re trying to escape this or that,” Gohmert told program host Tony Perkins on the June 26 show.
Instead, said the congressman, one woman told him: “Well, we wanted to give these children a good education.”
“They’re coming because now they know they get to stay,” Gohmert said.
In addition, stories of everyone from hardened criminals to waves of sick people with HIV, MERS and drug-resistant strains of tuberculosis flooding the country continue to inundate the news media. In fact, some sources point out that its the criminal networks taking the kids to the U.S. border. Why would they decide to randomly do that en masse? We can’t keep pointing to the mainstream media for answers to any of these questions. That would require a modicum of trust.
House Speaker John Boehner recently wrote a letter to President Obama telling him, “The policies of your administration have directly resulted in the belief by these immigrants that once they reach U.S. soil, they will be able to stay here indefinitely.” Boehner, along with a few other members of Congress, have called on Obama to order the National Guard to secure the border. It should be apparent by now to anyone paying attention that isn’t going to happen.
It isn’t like Mexico hasn’t called for U.N. “peacekeepers” to secure the U.S.-Mexico border before in recent years. The U.N. has also recently announced that Detroit is in violation of the human right to water because so many people there have had their water service shut off for failure to pay their bills.
There have been a lot of drills over the past year for mass civil unrest under societal meltdown conditions, and a lot of federal purchase orders for bullets and MREs (meals ready-to-eat). The Pentagon is spending millions to prep for mass civil unrest as well.
Now Obama is set to ask Congress for $2 billion to try and fix an immigration problem his policies caused. You know, since we have a spare couple of billion just lying around, as the U.S. economy is doing so well. (Click that link to view all the charts showing just how “well” the economy is doing). In reality, our money isn’t based on much of anything at all anymore. The ridiculous derivatives market is an unfathomable figure somewhere over a quadrillion dollars. The Pope has announced that the world economy is close to collapsing. Former World Bank chief economist Justin Yifu Lin warned that “the dominance of the greenback is the root cause of global financial and economic crises,” and that the solution to those crises is to “replace the national currency with a global currency“. [emphasis added]
The Dollar Vigilante founder Jeff Berwick recently wrote, “…watching the US today is like watching The Truman Show. The average person is told all manner of things that are incorrect, wrong and fallacious via the media and the government and think it is real. One day soon, though, like in the movie, your average person in the US is going to have their boat run up into the falsely erected walls and realize that everything they believed about the US economy was a lie. By then the US economy will be a smoldering crater, the US dollar will have collapsed and capital and travel controls will be fully in place.”
Money is scant. The state of Georgia just set the threshold as low as one year on its Disposition of Unclaimed Properties Act. Got a bank account you don’t use because you’re saving for a rainy day in Georgia? Better get your umbrella out, because apparently the state can and will take your money.
People are getting antsy these days. We have had an awful lot of highly publicized mass shootings lately, and President Obama did say his biggest frustration as president has been that we haven’t had more gun control. Good thing the U.N. employs disarmament officers required to have “experience with small arms control,” “conflict/post-conflict crisis management,” and “economic recovery”.
What else. Ah yes, the Internal Revenue Service — under intense scrutiny for unfairly targeting tea party, conservative and religious groups that aren’t in line with the Obama Administration — is claiming the dog ate a select number of its hard drives, even though potentially damning electronic evidence such as emails are actually stored on servers. I guess the IRS dog also ate the servers (and all back ups of any kind, anywhere) as well.
Meanwhile, salutatorians are being threatened with lawyers not to mention God or their faith in their graduation speeches. Elementary school children as young as five are singing songs celebrating homosexuality and reciting the LGBT pledge to a rainbow flag at school assemblies. Little boys belonging to the Boy Scouts of America, clad in rainbow neckerchiefs, were marched out as political pawns in one of the world’s largest gay pride parades in New York this weekend. (Just typing that paragraph to point these facts out is probably considered a politically incorrect hate crime by today’s standards.)
And in other news, small town police departments all over the nation are being heavily militarized, with some cities of less than 4,000 people receiving little-to-no-cost mine-resistant, ambush-protected tanks from the Pentagon…to police American streets. Why? America has been declared a “war zone”. SWAT teams riding around in tanks are becoming the norm. Martial law is the new American law enforcement standard.
On the other side of the world, members of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, known as ISIS, are slowly taking over Iraq with the help of training reportedly received by U.S. instructors at a secret base in Jordan in 2012. As we are all well aware at this point, the so-called War on Terror was designed to never truly end, so why not. TIME is reporting that the U.S. plans to split Iraq into three states, a process known as Balkanization. Despite being presented as a new concept, it has been the plan for years now, actually.
Like Iraq, America is also being taken apart. Unseen forces are hard at work transforming this country and the rest of the world with it. The music is changing, the tempo accelerating. If it seems like everything is unraveling, it’s because someone (more like a group of them) long ago planned it that way.
Founding father James Madison, who earned the nickname ‘Father of the Constitution’ once said, “I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments by those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.”

½ BILLION OF YOUR MONEY TO GO TO SYRIAN REBELS
What's the difference between ISIS and the Syrian rebels? Well, according to our government masters, ISIS is bad and the Syrian rebels are good. Never mind the fact that many of them are the same people, Now, the Obama administration wants to give another $500 million of your money to the Syrian rebels. Now, ISIS, in Iraq already has billions of dollars of U.S. money in captured weapons and vehicles, so of course they should have more.
So, let's review. Saddam Hussein was good when the U.S. installed him in 1967, but was bad in 1990. Manuel Noreiga was good when the U.S. installed him, but was bad when the U.S. removed him. Libyan leader Muammar al-Qaddafi, was good when he moved his nation from the 3rd world into unparalleled prosperity, but was bad as the U.S. bombed them into the stone age and murdered him. The Soviets were bad when they invaded Afghanistan, but the U.S. was good when they invaded Afghanistan.
Here's a question for those in our military. Do you really feel compelled to risk your lives for these people? How can we ridicule those in Nazi Germany for blindly following any command from their government and then turn around and do the same? Here's an idea --- How about risking your lives in defense of the Constitution?

Churkin advises US to use $500 million better than on Syrian rebels
THE UNITED NATIONS, June 27. /ITAR-TASS/. The US plans to spend $500 million for training and outfitting Syrian rebels is a step in the wrong direction, Russian Permanent Ambassador to the UN Vitaly Churkin said on Thursday. In his words, 500 million dollars is “a very big sum of money.” “I am sure that it is possible to spend it for something more useful,” he told a news conference at the Russian Permanent Mission at the UN.
“They (the United States) put the situation on the wrong track,” the diplomat said. He said with regret that the US “adds fuel to the fire of Syrian conflict instead of seeking a political solution.” “We noticed that our American partners say that they are not confident whether a successor to Brahimi should be appointed and they are not confident whether talks (between Damascus and opposition) should be resumed. They are sure of nothing,” Churkin stated.
The US Administration asked the Congress for $500 million in aid to the so-called moderate armed Syrian opposition, White House spokesperson Caitlin Hayden said on Thursday.
Plans of the Obama Administration to allocate $500 million to train opposition militants raise many questions of observers. The region faced an unprecedented terrorist threat primarily coming from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant organization. Starting their extremist activities in northern Syria, terrorists of this grouping also moved to Iraq and took control of several regions in the country.
Vitaly Churkin urged to take a threat coming from the radicals quite seriously. “We faced a threat of creating a terrorist state on the territory between Aleppo and Baghdad. This is real,” he told journalists at the UN head office. The diplomat said with confidence that current situation resulted partially from failed inter-Syrian talks. He recalled that the preliminary agenda of talks included four issues, the first one was the fight against terrorism and the second was formation of an interim government. The opposition refused to discuss them separately and talks were foiled.
“Taking into account the recent activities of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, it would be better and wiser for them to agree on some joint practical steps for the fight against terrorism and with this in view propose to create some kind of a joint committee for these goals. It would lay a basis for this interim authority all are seeking to create,” the Russian permanent representative noted.

AMERICA HAS CEASED TO EXIST
This is the title of the subject article and accompanying video by Doug Casey. It's not news. Anyone who was around 20, 30, 40, or 50 years ago knows it. Jobs leaving the nation by the millions, debt that cannot be paid, police dressed up like the SS, searching, beating and sometimes killing their fellow Americans, wars and more wars that never end, schools graduating students that can barely spell their own name. It gets depressing.
It's not depressing that we have problems, even those that are as large as those mentioned. We can solve problems, but first there has to be a consensus to do so. In a nation of 315 million people, we need more than a couple of hundred demonstrating in the streets from time to time. It will take millions and we don't have forever.
So, in my opinion, the reason America doesn't exist is the pandemic apathy from coast to coast. I wonder if in the last days of Rome, when barbarians were continually looting that city, if those residents even cared. Maybe those directly affected cared, maybe not. The only way a nation as great as America was can collapse, is when the population willingly turns over their rule to a bunch of psychopaths and crooks and allows them to literally do anything they want.
"America, is a marvelous idea, a unique idea, fantastic idea, I'm extremely pro-American. But America has ceased to exist," declares Doug Casey, an economist and author of his most recent book, Right on the Money. He has also produced a new documentary called Meltdown America which predicts the economic and political unraveling of the U.S.
Casey recently sat down with Reason TV's Nick Gillespie to discuss the political, social, and economic challenges the US must conquer as well as lessons we can learn from failed states.

RIGHT OUT OF COMMUNIST MANIFESTO: COMMON CORE
One of the planks of the Communist Manifesto is central government control of education. It wasn't until the beginning of the last century that organized government control of education began. Then there was the formation of the Department of Education in 1978. The more the government gets its' nose into education, the worse it gets --- and it's expensive.
Not be outdone by the parade of past failures, our government masters have come out with Common Core. The subject video covers this atrocity. You would think there would be no way something like this could make its' way into our schools, but not so. 2 and 2 is 5? Why not? Thinking about how low our educational achievements have sunk, it should come as no surprise that past products of this educational system are now in charge.
It never would have happened. Many of them don't even like each other. This a first in history. I am referring to a united front against the U.S. by 133 nations. It has been the dream of our government masters to create a New World Order. What they didn't dream was their actions actually made a New World Order against them.
So what have trillions of dollars, hundreds of thousands of American military casualties and millions of dead from wars around the world gotten us? It has gotten us this. The money, which we could have used to save the infrastructure of our nation, is gone. The dead soldiers are gone. The wounded and disabled military are a millstone around our collective necks with no hope of treating them all. The dead around the world due to U.S. military actions have created an army of billions of friends, family and loved ones hating the U.S.
So now we can see the end and so can they. We are out of money. Our troops are exhausted fighting “Pop A Mole” around the world. Our jobs have left our nation and only debt spending can keep us afloat a while longer. The fact that there are so many cheering our future demise is entirely our fault. It is the fault of those actively promoting this insane policy. It is the fault of 300 million Americans who would rather watch a sporting event than to pay attention to their government leaders who are clearly drunk with power.

133 G77 Nations vow to destroy America’s New World Order
June 17, 2014. Bolivia. The American and European media are doing everything they can to black this news out. But it’s not going to stay a secret for long. As of this weekend, there’s a new New World Order on Earth and its enemy is the United States, the EU, the UN Security Council and the world’s shadow government led by the IMF and WTO. This new alliance of poor countries wouldn’t be much of a threat, except it includes two-thirds of the world’s nations including China and India.

It’s a sad day for the American people when their government and state-sponsored news industry blacks out such an important news story. Americans actually have to rely on outlets like the Havana Times in Cuba, The Times of India, and United Nations press releases. There’s a reason this news is being censored across the West. And it’s only the latest global news story over the past two weeks on this subject blacked out from the American people. Read on to find out why.
End of the New World Order
When the richest and most powerful nations on Earth formed the G7, G8, G20 and the like, they united to combine their dominance over the remaining 175 countries that make up humanity. And for decades, the wealthiest 20 countries led by the US have gotten exponentially more wealthy at the expense of the poorest 175 nations, who in turn have gotten even poorer. That’s been the result of the West’s ‘New World Order’, led mainly by self-appointed global governments like the International Monetary Fund and the World Trade Organization.
133 of those 175 countries have had enough of the New World Order’s rigged global financial system based in New York and London. They’ve seen their economies destroyed by corrupt corporations and global governments that create a cycle of never-ending dependence and poverty. They’ve seen their nations’ vast resources stolen by multinational corporations. Their agriculture landscape has been poisoned. Their citizens bankrupted by the IMF and Wall Street. And their democratically elected leaders overthrown by foreign agents from countries like the US.
They’ve had enough of the New World Order. And an alliance of 133 countries, two-thirds of the nations on Earth, signed an agreement this weekend to end the West’s New World Order and replace it with a fair, honest and legitimate World Order - one that lets everyone participate and benefit, not just the super rich.
The Next World Order
The organization is officially called the ‘Group of 77 and China’, but the alliance actually includes 133 nations. Showing just how much influence they have, their meeting this weekend in Bolivia was opened with a keynote speech by United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon. In the audience were over 30 heads of state from around the world and official representatives from over 100 more governments. Also illustrating the organization’s growing influence, China isn’t even a member of the G77, but insisted on participating anyway in a show of unity with the globe’s Next World Order.
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro participated, telling the gathered nations they had to unite to, “fight for fair and sustainable economic growth and for a new world economic order.” Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa went one step further, telling the gathered national leaders and representatives, “Only when we are united across Latin America and united around the world will we be able to make our voice heard and change an international order that is not just unfair, it is immoral.”
A report from AFP on Yahoo News, about the only report found in Western media, describes how Cuban President Raul Castro also participated, but reserved his comments for a call to help their top ally Venezuela. Cuba, Venezuela, Bolivia and a number of South American countries have insisted they are currently under attack by the United States and the CIA, who they insist are desperately trying to orchestrate coups to overthrow their democratically elected, pro-socialist governments the same way they are accused of doing in the Ukraine recently.
Iran and the UN
An announcement published by the United Nations this weekend touts UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon’s enthusiastic participation in the G77 meeting. It discusses how important this massive alliance is to the goals of the UN, particularly with regard to reversing the world’s growing economic inequality among nations. Moon and the UN are also sponsoring a separate but related meeting of nations in September to draft new climate resolutions to be enacted in 2015.
The announcement describes a private meeting between the UN Secretary General and Iran’s Vice President, ‘On the margins of today's summit, Mr. Ban met with the First Vice President of Iran, Eshaq Jahangiri, to discuss development issues, as well as the potential role that Iran could play in restoring stability in Iraq and Syria. The Secretary-General added that he looked forward to Iran's positive involvement on climate change and said he very much hoped that President Hassan Rouhani would attend the climate summit this September.’ The report also says the two leaders discussed Iran’s nuclear ambitions and the coming July deadline for compliance with past mandates.
Threats of America’s “second Vietnam”
Many of the government leaders in attendance took the opportunity to strike a blow against what they consider to be the biggest enemy of world peace, democracy and economic freedom - the United States. One leader even went as far as calling out President Obama by name and threatening the United States with a second Vietnam.
As reported by the Times of India, the G77 conference’s host this weekend - Bolivian President Evo Morales - threatened the United States and the American President telling the gathered heads of state, “If Mr. Obama keeps assailing the people of Venezuela, I am convinced that, faced with provocation and aggression, Venezuela and Latin America will be a second Vietnam for the United States. Let us defend democracy, natural resources, our sovereignty and our dignity.”
Cuba’s President Raul Castro was possibly the most pointed and focused in his remarks regarding the agenda of the participating countries. As reported by the Havana Times, Castro told the alliance of 133 nations, “It is necessary to demand a new international financial and monetary order and fair commercial conditions for producers and importers from the guardians of capital, centered in the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank, and from the defenders of neoliberalism grouped in the World Trade Organization, which are attempting to divide us. Only unity will allow us to make our ample majority prevail.”
UN Civil War - dissolving the UN Security Council
One of the more ambitious goals of the G77 and its 133 participating countries is the elimination of the United Nations Security Council. World leaders insist it is little more than a five-nation tyranny over the full UN body. With five permanent members of the UN Security Council having veto power over the rest, UN policies and actions have been dictated by those five countries - US, UK, Russia, France and China. Members of the G77 want the Security Council eliminated so the UN can go back to being a purely democratic body.
The Cuban leader went on to describe a global economic system run by American hypocrisy and financial corruption, “The principles of International Law and the postulates of the New International Economic Order are brazenly violated, concepts that attempt to legalize meddling are imposed, force is used and threats of force are made with impunity, the media are used to promote division.”
Dominoes beginning to fall
This is just the latest organized attack on a global financial system rigged by corrupt governments and the multinational corporations that control them. Just last month, Russia and China signed a long term trade alliance that represents the first major crack in the US Dollar bubble. The two countries agreed to stop using US Dollars in their transactions and instead use their own two currencies. The two largest banks from both countries immediately announced they would be dumping the US Dollar as well.
On top of that, the world’s ‘BRIC’ countries - Brazil, Russia, India and China - have publicly declared their goal of replacing the corrupted US Dollar with some other global default currency. Now that Russia and China have finally taken actual steps to do that, the remaining two-thirds of the world will most likely begin making preparations to stop using the US Dollar as well. It was only this weekend that 133 of them pledged to do just that.
The scary part for Americans is that both Washington and Wall Street have promised this would never happen, because if it did, it would destroy the US economic system and possibly the US itself. Read the Whiteout Press article, ‘Russia-China Deals move US Dollar closer to Collapse’ for more information.
This according to the head of the information center “Southeastern Front,” Konstantin Knyrik. It's hard to get accurate information out of Ukraine, but this seems to be genuine given the continuing conflict in the eastern part of that country.
If the Junta in Kiev were strong enough to put down the rebellion completely, it would be done by now. What appears to be happening is thousands of civilians have fled the east and sought refuge in Russia. Meanwhile, rebels and volunteers from Russia have been organizing in the east in order to mount an effective military response to the central government.
These types of revolutions do not succeed overnight, but failure to completely put them down lets them acquire supplies, skills and military equipment such as those in this story. Rebellions in Cuba, Vietnam, Iran and even our own nation went on for many years and ultimately succeeded. I'm not saying I agree with those who lead some of those other rebellions, but the thing they had in common was a wide spread hatred for the government in control. That is certainly the case today in Ukraine.

Ukrainian Independence Supporters Seize 221 Tanks From the Obama-Installed Government
On Friday, 20 June 2014, the resistance movement against the February 22nd coup-installed Ukrainian government achieved a major breakthrough against Obama’s forces, by seizing a tank-park in the town of Artemovsk, 30 kilometers from the city of Slavyansk — a city that has suffered repeated bombing and shelling attacks from planes, helicopters, and tanks, by Obama’s forces, ever since May 9th.
“At night, we took control of the tank base in Artemovsk, 30 kilometers from Slavyansk. We now have 221 tanks, 288 armored vehicles, 12 self-propelled guns, 18 Grad volley fire systems, 183 infantry fighting vehicles and 12 mortars,” the head of the information center “Southeastern Front,” Konstantin Knyrik, told Russia’s Interfax News Service.
Moreover, it simply beggars belief (except perhaps by the “news” “reporters,” or actually stenographers of White House lies, whom the Sulzberger-Ochs clan and other media-owning aristocratic families hire to fool their readers) that the hundreds of tanks at this Ukrainian government military facility in Artemovsk were Russia’s, instead of Ukraine’s; and that, somehow, Russia had managed secretly to swap-out its tanks for Ukraine’s tanks there.
All of this is occurring at the start of the Obama stooge Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko’s pre-announced 7-day halt in fighting, which started this weekend. However, if Surface-to-Air Missiles, or SAMs, happen to be included at that Artemovsk facility, then the bombers that Poroshenko sends in to carry out further bombings in southeastern Ukraine (whenever he resumes it) might encounter an even more effective resistance than before; and, so, though the Obama-supporting Kiev Post headlined on May 26th, “Poroshenko Pledges to Step Up Anti-Terrorism Operation, Bring Success within ‘Hours,’ Not Months,” the fantasy-mongering which emanates from this U.S. White House and from its Ukrainian stooge-of-the-moment, is clearly not credible to anyone except the most faithful of true-believers in America and in northwest Ukraine. This war that Obama started is clearly not proceeding as he had expected, and the seizure of that large weapons-depot in Artemovsk can only make things grimmer for the occupant of our “Oval Office.”
However, at an even deeper level, some people wonder, “Why Does NATO Still Exist?” after the collapse of communism, and now during the global sway of capitalism, no longer challenged by either Russia orChina. They have nothing to challenge it with; the “ideological war” is over. However, these are the types of questions that the American aristocracy, whose sole ultimate objective is to dominate not only the United States but the entire world, make sure that their “news” “reporters” simply ignore (or else treat with platitudes, if they do deal with it at all).
Because these questions are not discussed on the aristocracy’s “news”-media, the links have been provided here to the clearest reliable documentation known to this reporter in order to address these questions. Each reader of this report and of its links is welcomed to investigate each of these matters further on his or her own, such as by checking this out, and to take and accept nothing on faith, because faith is the aristocracy’s biggest weapon to use in controlling the public. That’s why aristocrats have spent billions pummeling the worldwide scientific community. Intelligent skepticism is the biggest threat to their power. Science itself is the enemy of tyranny.
And here is a typical way that Obama’s people of faith in Ukraine are proudly dealing with the people they “disagree with.” But increasingly, Obama’s stooges are losing support in Ukraine. One viewer of that youtube, ????????? ?????3, commented there: ”given a couple of slaps in the face, well, why throw [the victim] into the river and … in the middle of the bridge? … Why so much cruelty? … I [was] there, bent down to him! … I live in Ukraine, stood on the Maidan, but it is shameful … Enough [death] already!”
Obama’s policy has even driven many southeastern Ukrainians to become fanatically pro-Russian, because they see in Obama’s people the reflection of Adolf Hitler, and they are proud that Stalin destroyed Hitler’s forces. Viewing things in the perspective of their country’s history — now that Obama is forcing them to choose between Hitler and Stalin — they crave Stalin. That’s what this has come to. They are naturally disappointed to find that Putin is no Stalin; to them, he doesn’t seem to be fighting Obama’s stooges at all. These people are terrified, and they have reason to be. But, to Obama, and his Newspeak (to use George Orwell’s term for that), they are the “terrorists.”
And, so, ultimately, everyone must take sides: not between countries, nor between “races,” nor between “faiths,” but actually between the aristocracy and the public. In the United States, the aristocracy and its “Wall Street” have clearly won with crushing force, and so America’s “recession” has “ended” only for the aristocrats; but, now, this battle is being waged within every country; and, increasingly, also between the aristocracies of the various countries.
This is the reality; and, since the American aristocracy’s “news” media do not report it, it is likely to come as news, to whomever can find authentic news media, such as you have here, to report it.
The present news report is therefore being distributed free of charge for publication, to all U.S. mainstream and alternative news sites. The ones that reject it are controlled by the U.S. aristocracy. (In the West, this news report is what the Soviets used to call “samizdat.”) The few that report it (and just google its title, to find out which ones those are) are not controlled by them. And, maybe, as a voter who is seeking information about politics, that finding of yours will even turn out to be the most important news you will find.

MP GEORGE GALLOWAY ON NEW IRAQ CRISIS
Most do not know who George Galloway is. He is the British MP who vehemently opposed the war in Iraq. He is the one who came to the U.S. Congress and scolded them for perpetrating a scam on the U.S. population, based on what he called, “ a pack of lies”.
There are very, very few honest government representatives. That is true in Britain as the U.S. Galloway is one of those. No, I don't agree with every thing he says, but I do believe he is sincere in his positions. I would rather have someone representing me with whom I disagree on occasion, than someone who agrees with me on everything, but is a pathological liar. The latter is typical of those who claim to represent us.
It says in the Bible that he who sows the wind will reap the whirlwind. Today's news on Iraq illustrates just how accurate that statement is. 11 years ago we, in the United States were sold a bill of goods by the then President Bush and his cronies in the administration.
After 4,000 dead American soldiers and 1 million dead Iraqi's, the situation there is worse than ever. Of course, we cannot ignore Afghanistan, Ukraine, Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Nigeria, Iran, Libya and a dozen other potential flash points all around the world. The common denominator is us, the U.S. As bad as Iraq is, could there be a much bigger “whirlwind” on the horizon?
A Gallop poll today showed our elected representatives have only 7% support. So what's the answer? It so obvious that it amazes me that absolutely no one is suggesting it. The solution is “they have to go”. Every single elected representative and their bureaucratic cronies have to go. The entire U.S. government has to resign. Under our Constitution this is not only allowed, but Thomas Jefferson stated that it would be necessary. Absent that, our nation, and maybe our world is doomed. They will not stop. Things will continue to spiral out of control. They will not stop!

Jihadist militants surrounded Iraq's largest oil refinery today after a day of intense fighting as Peace Brigades called for by the radical Shiite cleric Muqtatda al-Sadr were held in the southern holy city of Najaf.
Dramatic satellite images emerged this evening showing the oil facility in Baiji with black smoke billowing from the site's buildings. ISIS rebels had also raised black jihadist banners around the key strategic facility in Baiji despite government forces insisting they were in 'complete control' of the plant.
The photos also show U.S.-made Humvees captured by the heavily armed militants as they manned a checkpoint near the sprawling facility. In the background, heavy black smoke rises up from the refinery.
Workers who had been inside the complex, which spreads for miles close to the Tigris river, said Sunni militants seemed to hold most of the compound in early morning and that security forces were concentrated around the refinery's control room.
The 250-300 remaining staff were evacuated after a temporary ceasefire, one of the fleeing workers said. Amid conflicting reports, Iraqi troops later claimed they had driven the insurgents out.
Elsewhere, hundreds took to the streets in so-called Peace Brigades near to the Imam Ali shrine in Najaf. The action followed calls by the radical Shiite cleric Muqtatda al-Sadr to form brigades to protect Shiite holy shrines against possible attacks by Sunni militants

President Barack Obama has said this evening he will not send combat troops back to Iraq - but that he is prepared to take 'targeted military action' and deploy 300 'military advisers' to the war-torn country.
In a statement made at the White House, Obama said U.S. forces will not be returning to combat in Iraq but will help train Iraqis. He added that intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance operations in Iraq had been stepped up to better understand the threats to Baghdad.
The move came as jihadists took a chemical weapons facility built by Saddam Hussein which contains a stockpile of old weapons.
State Department officials told the Wall Street Journal: 'U.S. officials don't believe the Sunni militants will be able to create a functional chemical weapon from the material. The weapons stockpiled at the Al Muthanna complex are old, contaminated and hard to move.'
'Nonetheless, the capture of the chemical-weapon stockpile by the forces of the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, known as ISIS or ISIL, the militant group that is seizing territory in the country, has grabbed the attention of the U.S.'
'We remain concerned about the seizure of any military site by the ISIL,' Jen Psaki, the State Department spokeswoman, said in a written statement.
'We do not believe that the complex contains CW materials of military value and it would be very difficult, if not impossible, to safely move the materials.'

IZZAT IBRAHIM AL DOURI 'MAIN FIGURE BEHIND ISIS ADVANCES'
Izzat Ibrahim al Douri - a former member of Saddam Hussein's inner circle - is thought to be a main figure behind recent ISIS advances in Iraq.
Al Douri, who has been reported dead twice, was Hussein's deputy and is believed to be the only senior member of the dictator's inner circle still alive.
Since the dictator's death, he has evaded capture - while forming the Naqshbandia group of Baathist officers.
The group have joined forces with ISIS - despite previously shunning fundamentalist Islam - as they both wish to see Sunni dominance of Iraq.
This could explain why ISIS has met little resistance from Sunnis in northern Iraq.
As the militants continued their drive towards Baghdad, embattled Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki resisted a growing clamour from the U.S. to step down.
Baghdad has formally requested that Washington launch air strikes on the advancing ISIS militants, but there were no signs U.S. military action was imminent.
U.S. officials castigated Maliki, who is being blamed in Washington for provoking the uprising by causing Iraq to splinter after discriminating against the minority Sunni community.
Obama and his national security team met to discuss how strongly to press Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki to undertake reforms and make his government more inclusive.
Top U.S. officials believe that giving more credence to Sunni concerns about al-Maliki may offer the best opportunity to stave off another deadly round of sectarian fighting of the kind that engulfed Iraq less than a decade ago.
U.S. officials said there was concern within the administration that pushing al-Maliki too hard might stiffen his resolve to stay in office and drive him closer to Iran, which is seeking to keep the Shiite leader in power.
The Obama administration wants to see evidence of a leadership transition plan being put in place in Iraq.
In a conference this evening Obama said:
- The US would send 300 military advisors - but not combat - to support the Iraqi military.
- Surveillance in Iraq has been stepped up - but no airstrikes planned.
- Obama said: 'Iraqi leaders must rise above their differences and come together around a political plan for Iraq's future'.
- John Kerry will travel to the region to speak with allies
- Iran should play a 'constructive role' in stabilising its neighbour.
Making a swipe at President Bush, he added: 'We should always ask hard questions before taking military action abroad.'
Chuck Hagel, the US defence secretary, also said this evening: 'I support President Obama's decision to deploy U.S. military personnel to advise the Iraqi security forces.
'These special operators will assess the situation on the ground, help evaluate gaps in Iraqi security forces, and increase their capacity to counter the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.
'However, as the president has repeatedly made clear, Iraq's problems cannot be resolved through American action alone, or through military force alone.'
Meanwhile, British Foreign Secretary William Hague has told ITV News that Iraq faces a 'severe challenge to its existence as a state'.
But he ruled out military intervention, saying: 'We are not planning that, we're not contemplating that, we are not having meetings.'

Vice President Joe Biden drove home the U.S. message that Maliki needs to lead all Iraqis, not just Shi'ites.
He told the Iraqi leader in a telephone call that he must govern in an 'inclusive manner, promote stability and unity among Iraq's population, and address the legitimate needs of Iraq's diverse communities,' a White House statement said.
Several other leading figures in Congress have also spoken out.
'The Maliki government, candidly, has got to go if you want any reconciliation,' said Dianne Feinstein, one of Obama's fellow Democrats, who chairs the Senate Intelligence Committee.
Republican senator John McCain urged Obama to 'make it make very clear to Maliki that his time is up'.
But Maliki's spokesman, Zuhair al-Nahar, today insisted that his administration was inclusive, with Sunni Muslims well represented in key roles.
'Prime minister Maliki has never used sectarian tactics, he believes truly that Iraq will not work without the true participation of the Sunni community,' he said.

In an apparent change of course, President Barack Obama indicated today that he does not need authorisation from Congress to take any steps over action in Iraq, top Senate Republican Mitch McConnell said.
While Mr Obama has not fully ruled out the possibility of launching air strikes, such action is not imminent, officials said, in part because intelligence agencies have been unable to identify clear targets on the ground.
However, he is expected to announce that he is deploying about 100 special forces known as Green Berets to Iraq to help train and advise Iraqi forces, according to a U.S. official.
The United States spent billions of dollars over several years training and arming Iraqi security forces after disbanding the Sunni-led army following the 2003 invasion that ousted dictator Saddam Hussein.
But the security forces wilted when faced with the militant offensive on June 9 which saw insurgents quickly capture Mosul, a city of some two million people, and then parts of Salaheddin, Kirkuk and Diyala provinces.
Some abandoned their vehicles and uniforms when faced with the insurgents.
The Sunni fighters have been led by the powerful Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, but also include a wide coalition of other Sunni Arab militant groups, as well as loyalists of executed dictator Saddam Hussein.
Al-Maliki, a Shiite, has rejected charges of bias and instead said the crisis has led Iraqis to rediscover 'national unity.'
Still, Maliki's outreach remains largely rhetoric, with no concrete action to bridge differences with Sunnis and Kurds, who have been at loggerheads with the prime minister over their right to independently export oil from their self-rule region in the north and over territorial claims.
Meanwhile, the Iraqi government today likened the jihadist insurgency to the Nazi occupation of Europe.
Zuhair al-Nahar, a spokesman for Iraqi prime minister Nouri al-Maliki's Dawa party, said the country's leaders felt 'abandoned' and 'want America, Europe, the UN to take immediate action to rectify the military situation'.

Speaking to Radio 4's Today programme, Al-Nahar said: 'This is a catastrophe of unprecedented scale.
'We are having a similar situation to Rwanda, where there is going to be genocide and we are having mass killings already. This is similar to the Nazi occupation of Europe.'
He added: 'Our focus needs to be on urgent action, air support, logistic support, counter-intelligence support, to defeat these terrorists who are posing a real danger to the stability of Iraq and to the whole region.'
Targeted air strikes would be 'very effective' and 'absolutely vital' with civilian casualties minimised.
The families of 40 Indian construction workers kidnapped by ISIS in the city of Mosul a week ago gathered at the Golden Temple in Amritsar to pray for the safe return of their loved ones.
Militants who overrun a swathe of territory north of Baghdad today released 48 foreigners, including four Turks, held for several days, Iraqi police said.
The construction workers, who were helping build a hospital in the now insurgent-held city of Tikrit, were from Turkey, Nepal, Bangladesh, Turkmenistan and Azerbaijan.
'The workers... were kidnapped near the Hamreen mountains four days ago, and were handed over near a checkpoint between Tikrit and Kirkuk,' said Major General Torhan Abdulrahman, the deputy police chief for Kirkuk province.
His comments came as a Kurdish intelligence chief claimed up to 450 Britons have joined the ranks of an extremist Islamist militant group in Iraq and could attack the UK.

Lahoor Talabani, director of counter terrorism for the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG), told Sky News that the offensive in the north of the country by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) should not be viewed as an attack only on the Iraqi government.
His comments echo those of Prime Minister David Cameron, who yesterday warned that Isis was plotting terror attacks on the UK and that militants returning from fighting in Iraq and neighbouring Syria now represent a greater threat than those from Afghanistan.
Mr Talabani said: 'According to the intelligence we have, just Britain alone have around 400 to 450 known people fighting amongst the ranks of Isis..
He added that Isis leader Abu Bakr el Baghdadi would use them to attack the UK if they survived the fighting and the situation would get worse for the West if it does not intervene.
He said: 'If only 10 per cent of these people survive, if I know Abu Bakr el Baghdadi he will use these people to attack the UK.'

Meanwhile, violence continued today when a car bomb exploded inside a parking lot in Baghdad's southeastern Shi'ite neighbourhood of New Baghdad, killing three people and wounding seven, police and hospital officials said.
The explosion came as Iraq's military said government forces had repelled repeated attacks by the militants on the country's largest oil refinery and had retaken parts of the strategic city of Tal Afar, near the Syrian border.
Iraqi government forces today claimed they had regained full control plant despite a witness saying earlier that Sunni militants have hung their black banners on watch towers, suggesting the vital facility had fallen to the insurgents.
The chief military spokesman, Lt General Qassim al-Moussawi, however, said Iraqi army troops had defended the refinery at Baiji, some 250 kilometres (155 miles) north of Baghdad, and 40 attackers were killed in fighting there overnight and early Wednesday.

An employee at the oil refinery reached by The Associated Press news agency late last night also said the facility remained in government hands, though one of its fuel tanks was on fire after it was apparently hit by a mortar shell fired by the militants.
Between 250 and 300 workers have reportedly been evacuated during a temporary ceasefire.
Amid conflicting reports, insurgents yesterday claimed they had seized 75 per cent control of the plant.
The Baiji refinery accounts for a little more than a quarter of the country's entire refining capacity - all of which goes toward domestic consumption for things like gasoline, cooking oil and fuel for power stations.

'I CALL UPON MY BROTHER TO TAKE UP A KNIFE AND KILL AS THEY DID #COLCHESTER': BRITISH ISIS FIGHTER URGES UK MUSLIMS TO AVENGE MURDER OF SAUDI WOMAN IN ESSEX
Abu Rashash Britani (pictured here on his Twitter page) has claimed that he and other British insurgents have been ordered to return home once they have finished fighting in Iraq and Syria
A British ISIS fighter who has threatened to return home has urged Muslims in the UK to avenge the murder of a Saudi Arabian woman in Essex.
Abu Rashash Britani has previously claimed that he and other British insurgents have been ordered to return to Britain once they have finished fighting in Iraq and Syria by the fanatical ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
Following the murder of 32-year-old PHD student Nahid Al Manea in Colchester, Essex yesterday, Abu Rashash Britani said: 'I call upon any brother to take up a knife and kill as they did #colchester'.
Anti-terror investigators in London are already examining claims in a tweet by Abu Rashash that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, head of ISIS, is targeting the UK with homegrown fighters.
Baghdadi, who has a £6million bounty on his head, is considered the world's most dangerous terrorist leader.
Now, following the brutal murder of a Saudi woman of Ms Al Manea in Colchester yesterday - which police believed may have been inspired to her conservative Muslim clothing - Abu Rashash Britani called for revenge attacks.
'These kuffar getting out of hand, dare they touch a #Muslimah. I call upon any brother to take up a knife and kill as they did #colchester,' he posted on Twitter.
Drawing comparisons to the murder of Drummer Lee Rigby outside his barracks in Greenwich last year, the ISIS fighter added: '#colchester attack is cowardly act.
At least when our noble brothers, killers of #leerigby did so they killed a soldier not a civilian.'
The tweet from Abu Rashash Britani declared: 'I my brother intend to go back to #UK under the order of our Ameer Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi #foreignpolicy.'
It is the first time it has been suggested that Baghdadi is preparing to send his battle-hardened and highly trained ISIS fighters back to the UK.
Following the murder of 32-year-old PHD student Nahid Al Manea in Colchester yesterday, Abu Rashash Britani urged Muslims to carry out revenge attacks
Any lengthy outage at Baiji risks long lines at the gas pump and electricity shortages, adding to the chaos already facing Iraq.
There was no independent confirmation of the military's claims about the Baiji refinery or that its forces had retaken neighbourhoods in Tal Afar, which Sunni fighters captured Monday.
Both are in territories held by insurgents that journalists have not been able to access.
Meanwhile, several families of 40 abducted Indian construction workers say they have spoken with the men, whose captors claim they will be freed unharmed, reports said today.
NO SMOKING, NO WOMEN OUTSIDE AND 'UNBELIEVERS' MUST REPENT: ISIS IMPOSES STRICT SHARIA LAW IN CAPTURED TERRITORIES
In the swathe of seized regions across northern Iraq, ISIS has declared hardline Sharia law, publishing the following set of strict rules:
Drugs, cigarettes or alcohol banned
People have tried secular rule - now it is time for an Islamic state
Women should wear loose-fitting clothes and leave home only when necessary
Shrines and graves should be destroyed
Only flag allowed to be carried is the ISIS one
Places have been opened for police and soldiers of the 'unbelievers' to repent
Tribal leaders must not become traitors by working with the government
All Muslims to pray at the mosque at the correct time
Money we have stolen from the government is for the public. Only the imam of mosques can spend it - thieves will have their hands cut off
We are the soldiers of Islam and we have taken on the responsibility of re-establishing the caliphate
Translated by The Independent
An Indian official said the Iraqi government has determined the location where 40 Indian construction workers abducted near Mosul have been held captive with workers of a few other nationalities.
Syed Akbaruddin, the spokesman for India's External Affairs Ministry, declined to say more on the location or possible future action.
But Charanjit Singh said his brother called him on Wednesday 'for a couple of minutes' to tell him the workers were safe and that their captors had claimed they would be released if someone from the government made contact.
'He said he and his co-workers from India were all safe and not held hostage,' Singh told The Hindu newspaper from his home in northern Punjab state.
'They say (the militants) will release them if someone responsible from the Indian military or government comes to collect them,' Singh added.
Gurpinder Kaur said her brother told her on June 15 that the militants had promised to free the group 'safely without any conditions' if New Delhi got in touch with them.
She added that the Indians were taken by the militants on June 11, according to the Indian Express newspaper.
While the families said the phone calls were cause for optimism, the government has warned that the situation on the ground remains 'very difficult'.
The Turkish Foreign Ministry said its diplomats were also investigating a Turkish media report that militants grabbed 60 foreign construction workers, including some 15 Turks, near the northern Iraqi oil city of Kirkuk.
Tal Afar's proximity to the Syrian border strengthens the Islamic State's plan to carve out an Islamic caliphate, or state, stretching across parts of the two countries.
Danger zones: Syria has replaced Afghanistan as the least peaceful country in the world, according to the Institute for Economics and Peace
The growing sectarian nature of the crisis - which prime minister Nouri al-Maliki vehemently denies - caught the attention of United Nations chief Ban Ki-moon.
'The rapidly deteriorating security situation in Iraq is deeply alarming and increases the sectarian tensions in the region,' Ban said.
'It is imperative that acts of reprisal be avoided as they can only intensify the cycle of violence.'
ISIS has vowed to march to Baghdad and the Shi'ite holy cities of Karbala and Najaf, home to some of the sect's most revered shrines, in the worst threat to Iraq's stability since U.S. troops left in late 2011.
The militants also have tried to capture Samarra, a city north of Baghdad and home to another major Shiite shrine.
On Wednesday, a bomb blast killed four and wounded 11 in the mostly Sunni district of Ghazaliyah in western Baghdad.
Ethnic Kurds now control Kirkuk, moving to fill a vacuum after the flight of Iraqi soldiers. They too are battling the Sunni extremist militants.
Republicans continued to insist Wednesday that Obama bore the blame for allowing the insurgency to strengthen because of his decision to withdraw U.S. forces from Iraq in late 2011 after more than eight years of war.
Washington and Baghdad failed to reach a security agreement that would have allowed American forces to stay longer.
CAN ISIS REALLY TAKE BAGHDAD? WHAT'S THEIR END GAME? A MIDDLE EAST EXPERT ASSESSES THEIR OPTIONS
Expert view: Andreas Krieg, a Middle East security analyst at King's College London in Qatar
With jihadist fighters closing in on Baghdad with such apparent ease, could they really take control of Iraq? And do they even want to?
Here, Andreas Krieg, a Middle East security analyst at King's College London in Qatar, gives MailOnline his verdict on ISIS's chances of toppling Baghdad and whether they can achieve their ultimate goal of establishing an Islamic state.
Will ISIS try to take Baghdad?
It is clear that ISIS is moving towards Baghdad so it seems they are trying to take Baghdad.
It would be unrealistic to seize Baghdad considering the concentration of Iraqi military, private armed contractors, Shi’a militias and armed neighborhood watches there.
Also, I think that the U.S. will draw a red line when it comes to Baghdad.
It depends how far ISIS is willing to go into Baghdad before they realise that it might not be worth the costs. One needs to consider as well that ISIS as a jihadist organisation also tries to spread fear and terror.
So what's the alternative?
For them, it might be sufficient to demonstrate to the population of the city that they are not safe as long as they support Maliki (the Iraqi Prime Minister).
They can do that by drawing Iraqi security forces into fierce urban combats or by using their terrorist wing to plant bombs. These tactics, however, will not bring about control of the city.
They might enter the city and bring about a stalemate, but it seems unlikely at this moment to expect Baghdad to fall.
What happens then?
In order to achieve their strategic objective of creating an actual caliphate (Islamic state), they do not need Baghdad.
It would be more sensible at this point to consolidate power and control over these areas under its responsibility.
What is a caliphate?
The idea of caliphate in their minds is quite a vague concept. All jihadi as well as many moderate Islamist organisations ultimately seek to establish a caliphate.
ISIS is the one organisation that has come the closest of actually controlling territory.
For Al Qaeda, the concept of the caliphate is a more utopian concept. This is where ISIS breaks with Al Qaeda and its own past.
They have proclaimed Al Baghdadi as the Emir of their caliphate, which now comprises large areas stretching from northern Syria to Iraq.
How will they go about establishing one?
ISIS is mostly regarded as a foreign entity as most of its fighters are not from the Levant. Most of ISIS in Iraq are not from Iraq and most of ISIS in Syria are not from Syria.
So they need to recruit mujahedeen from abroad in order to not just keep on fighting but also hold the territory and establish a governance structure.
So far, they have taken only basic public services such as collecting garbage, collecting taxes (zakat), enforcing Sharia law, replacing Imams in bigger cities with their own Imams etc.
But for the most part administering is done through coercion.
Law and order is enforced by deterrence. They have public show trials where defendants get publicly lashed or executed.
With limited forces available to administer the country, the local population could probably cause major problems if they rose up against ISIS.
ISIS control is very fragile as people only co-operate due to fear not because they want to. Just because they have seized territory from official statutory power, it does not make them a statutory power.
But they are learning and if there are able over the coming months and years to consolidate their power, they might be able to erect a quasi-regime loosely keeping all those territories together.

CDC COVERS UP VACCINE/AUTISM CONNECTION
Actually, this is no secret. Anyone who wants to research this subject can get all the information they want. According to the subject article, the CDC has covered up the connection between Thimerosal in vaccines and the explosion in Autism in children in the U.S. and other nations. This in spite of 165 studies showing the dangers of Thimerosal.
Shame on them, but shame on us, even more. I cannot understand, with all the information out there, and the potential catastrophe awaiting our children, why anyone would still vaccinate. It has been shown they don't work. It has been shown many of those contracting common childhood diseases have been vaccinated against those diseases.
So never mind the government. They don't care about you. They constantly lie about everything. They steal billions of dollars of your money to fund their bureaucracies, but what about you? We parents are the final defense for our children. I know it's not easy. Parenting is not easy.
More prominent evidence continues to arise on the falsification of peer-review studies, ghostwriting pharmaceutical studies by academics; especially related to vaccines, thimerosal and autism. The close coupling of commerce and academia is largely to blame, but what is clear is that the scientific enterprise is no longer built on a foundation of trust.
Just months after U.S. Congressman Bill Posey compared the Center for Disease Control (CDC)’s vaccine safety studies to the SEC’s Bernie Madoff scandal, malfeasance in the CDC’s studies of thimerosal-containing vaccines has, for the first time, been documented in peer-reviewed scientific literature.
165 Studies Have Found Thimerosal to be Harmful
While the CDC states on its website that “low doses of thimerosal in vaccines do not cause harm, and are only associated with minor local injection site reactions like redness and swelling at the injection site,” the journal BioMed Research International now provides direct evidence that the CDC’s safety assurances about the mercury-containing preservative are not fact-based, according to the article’s lead author,Brian Hooker, PhD.
Factually, Thimerosal is a mercury-containing compound that is a known human carcinogen, mutagen, teratogen and immune-system disruptor at levels below 1 part-per-million, and a compound to which some humans can have an anaphylactic shock reaction. It is also a recognized reproductive and fetal toxin with no established toxicologically safe level of exposure for humans.
The BioMed Research International paper opens by citing over 165 studies that have found Thimerosal to be harmful, including 16 studies that had reported outcomes in human infants and children of death, acrodynia, poisoning, allergic reaction, malformations, auto-immune reaction, Well’s syndrome, developmental delay and neurodevelopmental disorders including tics, speech delay, language delay, ADHD and autism. These findings by multiple independent research groups over the past 75+ years have consistently found thimerosal to be harmful. “Substantial scientific evidence exists and has existed for many years that the vaccine ingredient thimerosal is a developmental neurotoxin” says George Lucier, former Associate Director of the National Toxicology Program.
Studies showing harm from thimerosal sharply contradict published outcomes of six CDC coauthored and sponsored papers the very studies that CDC relies upon to declare that thimerosal is “safe” for use in infant and maternal vaccines. Dr. Hooker, biochemist and vaccine industry watchdog, said of the six CDC studies, “Each of these papers is fatally flawed from a statistics standpoint and several of the papers represent issues of scientific malfeasance. For example, important data showing a relationship between thimerosal exposure and autism are withheld from three of the publications (Price et al. 2010, Verstraeten et al. 2003 and Madsen et al. 2003). This type of cherry-picking of data by the CDC in order to change the results of important research studies to support flawed and dangerous vaccination policies should not be tolerated.”
More researchers are finding equally finding distrust in that their colleagues have gathered data carelessly, have used inappropriate analytic and statistical techniques, have reported their results inaccurately, and have treated the work of other researchers with disrespect.
With this trust now misplaced and the professional standards of science being violated, researchers are not just personally affronted–they are feeling that the base of their profession has been undermined. This is impacting relationship between science and society.
More research in the area of vaccination and thimerosal is representing a “significant departure from accepted practices” and has been “committed intentionally, knowingly, and recklessly” with a preponderance of evidence which is the hallmark of misconduct.
Dr. Boyd Haley, international expert in mercury toxicity and a co-author of the recently published paper said “There is no doubt that authorities in the CDC have initiated and participated in a cover-up of vaccine-induced damage from thimerosal to our children—-and this I consider criminal.” The paper, “Methodological Issues and Evidence of Malfeasance in Research Purporting to Show Thimerosal in Vaccines is Safe,” was published on June 6 and contains eight pages of evidence that the CDC has had knowledge of the vaccine preservative’s neurological risks, yet continues to cover them up.
The paper concludes, “five of the publications examined in this review were directly commissioned by the CDC, raising the possible issue of conflict of interests or research bias, since vaccine promotion is a central mission of the CDC. Conceivably, if serious neurological disorders are found to be related to Thimerosal in vaccines, such findings could possibly be viewed as damaging to the vaccine program.”
Dr. Hooker has submitted over 100 FOIA requests to the CDC over the past 10 years and has amassed thousands of pages of documents showing malfeasance in the CDC’s vaccine safety program. Hooker revealed that one CDC document quoted a top official instructing CDC employees to “Review all correspondences and documents to see if there is ‘foreseeable harm’ to the agency if they were released” so the documents could be redacted by CDC attorneys prior to release.
In late 2013, a notice by the Health and Human Services Department was given in that the Office of Research Integrity (ORI) has confirmed findings on Dr. Dong-Pyou Han, former Research Assistant Professor, Department of Biomedical Services, ISU, who engaged in research misconduct in research supported by National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), National Institutes of Health (NIH).
It’s one of dozens of findings that are now being exposed by such agencies.
Barry Segal, founder of the Focus Autism Foundation said, “We are in the process of exposing what may be the biggest federal scandal ever with immense damage to our economy and our people, especially our children who are the future of our country. Their health has been compromised by mercury in vaccines. We need Congress to take action now. Thimerosal must be banned.”
More than 33% researchers are now engaged in at least one behavior judged (by university compliance officers) to be “sanctionable” offenses, however official estimates may be much lower than actual incidents.
Researchers conducting studies in vaccination are now routinely:
- Falsifying/fabricating data or results
- Selectively withholding data that contradict their research
- Misusing the data of others
- Presenting data in a sloppy or deceptive manner
- Failing to maintain accurate laboratory notebooks
- Sabotaging research of others
- Misusing research funds or university resources
- Developing inappropriate research/industry relationships for personal gain
- Failing to comply with federal and/or Rutgers guidelines for the treatment of human or animal subjects
Until more accountability is taken for potential violations of scientific standards, including researchers examining their own biases and motivations and their ability to remain objective, we may never know how many vaccine safety studies in the last several decades have been falsified.

WHAT IS ISRAEL?
Most who comment on news or give commentary, won't touch this subject with a 10 foot pole. I confess my guilt on this, as I rarely give coverage to a 66 year long conflict that has brought the world to the brink of war from time to time.
So here it goes. Today's Israel is a nation. The Israel referred to in the Bible was a people which later formed a nation. That nation was later split into 2 nations, Judah and Israel. Both of those nations were described in the Bible as “doing evil in the sight of the Lord”. They were then conquered and their inhabitants largely scattered or carried off into slavery. Those in today's Israel claiming heritage of ancient Israeli's are actually Turkish, having converted to Judaism in the 8th century.
In 1948, the UN voted to give the Ashkenazi Jews, territory in Palestine, now known as Israel. In order to do this, residents there had to be displaced. With the aid of the United States, Israel has become a military superpower with nuclear weapons. They have used this power to create an apartheid State, using the same tactics that oppressed Jews in Germany 80 years ago. These tactics are not godly, they are not moral and have no place in a civilized world. Those of us who call ourselves Christians cannot allow ourselves to be deceived into thinking these people are entitled to live by different standards because of their false claim of a heritage to the Biblical 12 tribes. Christ repeatedly warned about deceit and there is not better example than this.
Israel has launched yet another campaign against the Palestinian people. This time its excuse is the kidnapping of three teenage “boys”. Israel is using this incident to once again collectively punish my people. According to international law, collective punishment is a crime.
Israel worries about these children of illegal colonizers who threw my people off of our land, but what about the thousands of Palestinians, including young children, who have been abducted by Israeli soldiers and thrown into Israeli jails without charge? What are our children guilty of to be imprisoned and trapped in cages? Did they fire rockets into Israel in reaction to the many times more rockets Israel fires at our homes and lands?
Lest we forget
You must not forget these crimes, nor should you forget Israel’s bloody massacres of my people.
My people suffer behind walls and the rest of the world remains ignorant and silent. Thousands of Palestinian children have been tortured in Israeli prisons. No one knows the pain we live with. What proof is there that we really kidnapped the “boys”? And if Palestinians did kidnap these Jewish boys, they would have done so as a result of the atrocities they and their families have been subjected to throughout their entire lives.
We are deprived even of our sleep, and the only thing the powers that oppress us expect us to do is to remain ignorant.
Beginning over 45 years ago, Israel began building settlements in order to prove its claim to all of our land, which it stole by virtue of its greater strength and cunning. It build new settlements and continues to expand existing ones. Chedi Klibi, former Secretary-General of the Arab League, outlines three basic objectives of Israel’s expansionism:
The annexation of more Arab lands, including the displacement of the inhabitants, which lead to demographic changes that increase the Jewish population; expropriation of Palestinian property and the necessary and continuous repression required to prevent the Palestinians from keeping what is rightfully theirs.
The preemption of any attempt by the Palestinian people to affirm their human rights, among which is the right of self-determination in their own land. Thus, the original and long term objective of proliferating and expanding settlements is to eliminate the Palestinian people and their recognized national rights from the region’s political map.
To use the settlements issue to foil any political solution that doesn’t concede full Israeli sovereignty over occupied Palestinian territory. Israel is saying, in effect, that it will accept nothing less than surrender, even though it insists on calling this surrender “peace”.
Dear reader, do you know what it means to be a Palestinian? It means you are not able to move here or there, and that you have few of the basic requirements needed to live a decent life. We are deprived even of our sleep, and the only thing the powers that oppress us expect us to do is to remain ignorant.
As Palestinians, curses follow us everywhere we go. For example, last year I went to Cairo to be interviewed for my visa. I did the interview very well but the officer smiled at me and said: “Rana, sorry, but we can‘t issue your visa to the US.” I asked why? His only answer was “because you are Palestinian”. My American friend spent USD 1,000 on the visa application, travel expenses to and from Cairo, and three days of food and lodging for my mother and me. The US, which assists Israel in making life difficult for us, made us go through an expensive and time-consuming process that it knew all along would result in rejection.
Hear no evil, see no evil
How much longer will the world stay deaf? Is our blood free of charge? What crimes have our children committed that they are forced to live in hell? We are human beings, not aliens. We are exactly like you. Regardless of colour, sex, nationality or religion, we just want to live like you in peace and under good conditions.
Imagine sleeping when, suddenly, you are awakened in the middle of the night to the sounds of rockets and warplanes, and children screaming.
Imagine sleeping when, suddenly, you are awakened in the middle of the night to the sounds of rockets and warplanes, and children screaming. Tell me, how would you deal with this situation? What would you tell your child if he came to you crying and shouting because of the bombing?
Last night, unable to sleep, my 14-year-old brother said to me: “Rana, I put the bicycle on the door of the balcony because of the strong explosion I heard.” When he told me this, I felt helples, knowing I could not do anything to stop the bombing.
Israeli forces shoot gas bombs on my people. Israel practices repression as a major cornerstone of its policy in our occupied land.
Raise your voices and stand by the truth, no matter how much it costs. Our children want the same freedom you have. They want their human rights. All the world should know what life is like here in Gaza. Only justice will heal the wounds of my people.
The late Saddam Hussein was certainly right when he predicted that America’s invasion of Iraq would become “the Mother of All Battles.” Eleven years later, it continues.
This week saw the collapse of two divisions of Iraq’s government army, a full 30,000 men running like chickens before the relentless advance of the fighters of ISIS – the Islamic State of Iraq and Shams(Syria). The same puppet army trained and equipped for a decade by the US at a cost of $14 billion. An evil portent of what awaits Afghanistan’s US-led army and police.
Remember when President George W. Bush boasted, “mission accomplished?” Was not the wicked Saddam Hussein lynched by US Shia allies? Wasn’t the dreaded al-Qaida defeated and its leader, Osama bin Laden, assassinated? Remember all that crowing from Washington about “draining the swamp” in Iraq?
As soon as the US knocks down one challenger to its domination of the Mideast – which I call the American Raj - another rises up. The latest: ISIS, a fierce jihadist force that now controls large parts of Syria and Iraq.
ISIS is a combination of Sunni jihadist groups fighting the Shia-backed Damascus government of Bashar Assad (a US enemy backed by Shia Iran), and resurgent units of Saddam’s old Ba’athist army, led by Izzat Ibrahin al-Douri, the last surviving member of Saddam’s inner circle, and a handful of al-Qaida in Iraq.
They are battling to overthrow the US-installed Shia regime in Baghdad of Nuri al-Maliki, an Iranian ally. There are suspicions ISIS may be secretly financed by Sunni Saudi Arabia, a US ally.
Wait a minute. My enemy’s enemy is my friend, as the old Mideast saying goes. The US is trying to overthrow Syria’s secular government to undermine its ally, Iran. The US has been using brutal jihadist groups against the Assad regime in Damascus. But now these jihadists in Syria have mostly fallen under the sway of ISIS – which is chewing up the US-backed regime in Baghdad. Confusing, is it not? My enemy’s enemy has become my friend’s enemy.
The 2003 invasion of Iraq, the stupidest war in US history, which was rousingly backed by Congress and the media, has produced a monumental mess of mind-numbing complexity as Washington trips over its own feet. The ladies advising President Barack Obama on his Mideast policy are hopelessly befuddled.
Washington, now in a major panic over ISIS, is moving towards air strikes against Iraq using warplanes based in Kuwait and the Gulf. The US also has two full mechanized combat brigades in Kuwait. Republicans are calling for US ground forces to re-enter Iraq to shore up the widely detested Maliki regime.
While Washington dithers, its little Kurdish protectorate in northern Iraq is threatening to send its combat-effective ‘pesh merga’ fighters to battle ISIS. But this is making both Turkey, which opposes any Kurdish state, and Iran, with its own Kurdish problem, very uneasy. Iraq used to be part of the Ottoman Empire. Its vast oil reserves are a constant enticement to energy-deprived Turkey.
This awful mess can be directly traced to neoconservative strategists in Washington clustered around Vice President Dick Cheney. In 2002, their primary goal, according to Cheney, was to wreck Iraq, the most industrially advanced and progressive Arab state, so removing a major foe of Israel, and then grabbing Iraq’s oil.
Following the time-tested Roman imperial formula of ‘divide et impera’(divide and rule), Washington played Iraq’s long downtrodden Shia against its Sunni minority, igniting a wider Sunni-Shia conflict in the Arab world, notably in Syria.
In fact, Israel emerged as the sole strategic victor of the Bush/Cheney war against Iraq. That war, so far, has cost the US 4,500 soldiers killed, 35,700 wounded, 45,000 sick and over $1 trillion. Iraq lies in ruins, likely shattered beyond all attempts to put it back together. No senior American or British official has faced trial for this disastrous, trumped-up war.
Nuri Maliki has totally excluded Sunnis from power in Iraq, and uses brutal secret police and torture to repress them. Small wonder he faces a major uprising. Iraq’s oil-based economy remains in ruins. Many Iraqis believe their now wretched nation was far better off under Saddam Hussein, as brutal and clumsy as he was.
Interestingly, efforts by ISIS to forge an Islamic state in a merged Syria and Iraq is one of the first major challenges to the foul Sykes-Picot agreement of 1916 under which the British and French Empires secretly colluded to divide up the moribund Ottoman Empire’s Mideast domains. Today’s artificial Mideast borders were drawn by the Anglo-French imperialists to impose their rule on the region. Iraq and Syria were the most egregious examples.
ISIS appears set on erasing the British-French borders and re-creating the unified Ottoman province (Turkish: vilyat) of Syria, Lebanon and Iraq. In the West, the neocon-dominated commentariat calls ISIS terrorists. In the Mideast, many see them as anti-colonial fighters struggling to reunite the Arab world sundered and splintered by the western powers. The western powers are now preparing to strike back

MORE IRAQI TERRITORY FALLS TO REBELS
Yes, “Mission Accomplished” entered a new stage Thursday as rebels seized more territory including a former U.S. military base. It is becoming more evident by the hour that the U.S. imposed government will not last very long unless the U.S. re-invades Iraq. Wouldn't that be nice?
It brings me back to the Vietnam war. As we were continually lied to for over 10 years, with such statements as “ The light at the end of the tunnel” or “ Peace is at hand”, the Iraqi situation has an ominous parallel. In the spring of 1975 North Vietnamese and Viet Cong troops were marching on Saigon. A few days later the remaining U.S. troops were jumping on helicopters on the roof of the U.S. Embassy with civilians hanging on them.
How many times will we continue to accept these lies? How many wars do we have to lose? How much blood do we have to spill? How much money will we continue to pour down a rat hole, before we just say no?
Militants from the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) have taken control of two areas in Diyala Province.
On Thursday, the militants managed to take control of Jalawi and Sa'adiyah villages, northwest of the Iraqi capital, Baghdad.
Earlier in the day, reports said that the Takfiri militants had seized the town of Dhuluiyah and the Muatassam area.
The seizures came after ISIL spokesman, Abu Mohammed al-Adnani, called on the militants to march on toward the country’s capital, Baghdad, and Karbala.
Iraqi forces are also continuing their battle against the militants in Salahuddin and Nineveh provinces, having managed to push the militants back in some areas.
The Kurdish Peshmerga forces have also said they are in control of the northern city of Kirkuk.
On June 10, Iraq’s northern Nineveh Province fell into the hands of the militants. The Takfiri attacks have reportedly forced more than half a million people in and around Nineveh’s provincial capital, Mosul, to flee their homes.
On June 11, Iraqi forces managed to regain control of the central city of Tikrit.
Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki has pledged to take tough action against the al-Qaeda-linked militants, adding that Baghdad “will never permit Mosul and Nineveh to remain under the shadow of terror and the terrorists.” Maliki has also called the seizure of Mosul, Iraq’s second largest city, a “conspiracy.”
The United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon and the UN Security Council have also condemned the recent terrorist attacks in Mosul.
Takfiri groups are reportedly entering Iraq from neighboring Syria and Saudi Arabia to undermine security in the country.

SO, HOW'S THAT WAR IN IRAQ GOING?
Oh! You thought it was over? Silly you! I know, baby Bush landed on that aircraft carrier with the banner “Mission Accomplished” in the background. Then, candidate Obama, promised in 2008, he would end the war in Iraq the day he was inaugurated. Well, here we are in 2014 and it's worse than ever.
The subject article covers the fall of Mosul to Iraqi rebels with 500,000 civilians fleeing the city. Remember in 2003, when the U.S. government accused Saddam of harboring Al-Qaeda? It turns out that was a lie. Never mind that. After killing a million Iraqi's and sending their nation into the stone age, Iraqis are embracing anyone who will oppose the U.S. installed government. It turns out that these rebels are backed by Al-Qaeda. So the U.S. not only did not remove Al-Qaeda from Iraq, it helped to bring them in.
But it doesn't end there. Libya is on the brink of destruction. Syria has lost over 200,000 of its' residents. Afghanistan's government is teetering. Ukraine is bankrupt and in a civil war. Sudan is in chaos. All of this courtesy of the United States. Well done! Now back to basketball.

Iraq crisis: Islamists force 500,000 to flee Mosul
Civilians crossed the Tigris river to escape the fighting, as the BBC's James Robbins reports
Troops were among those fleeing as the jihadists from the ISIS group took the city and much of Nineveh province.
The head of the Turkish mission in Mosul and dozens of consulate officials have been seized.
PM Nouri Maliki has asked parliament to declare a state of emergency.
The US said the development showed ISIS was a threat to the entire region.
ISIS - the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, which is also known as ISIL - is an offshoot of al-Qaeda.
It now controls considerable territory in eastern Syria and western and central Iraq, in a campaign to set up a militant enclave straddling the border.
Residents of Mosul - Iraq's second city - said jihadist flags were flying from buildings and that the militants had announced over loudspeakers they had "come to liberate" the city.
"The situation is chaotic inside the city, and there is nobody to help us," said government worker Umm Karam. "We are afraid."
ISIS in Iraq
The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) has 3,000 to 5,000 fighters, and grew out of an al-Qaeda-linked organisation in Iraq
ISIS has exploited the standoff between the Iraqi government and the minority Sunni Arab community, which complains that Shia PM Nouri Maliki is monopolising power
It has already taken over Ramadi and Falluja, but taking over Mosul is a far greater feat than anything the movement has achieved so far, and will send shockwaves throughout the region
The organisation is led by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi - an obscure figure regarded as a battlefield commander and tactician. He was once the leader of al-Qaeda in Iraq, one of the groups that later became ISIS.
Staff working for the IOM in Mosul say that all official buildings there have been taken over, including police and military bases, and the airport.
A Turkish official said 48 people, including the head of the diplomatic mission, had been seized in Mosul.
Many police stations were reported to have been set on fire and hundreds of detainees set free.
Dozens of vehicles were destroyed in and around Mosul as the militants advanced
Security forces were reportedly among those who left their belongings and fled
Hundreds of thousands of people have now left Mosul, and are heading to Kurdistan
Cars carrying Mosul residents caused a giant traffic jam outside the nearby Kurdish city of Irbil
"The army forces threw away their weapons, changed their clothes, abandoned their vehicles and left the city," Mahmud Nuri, a resident fleeing Mosul, told the AFP news agency.
There has been a large number of civilian casualties, the IOM says, and some mosques have been converted into clinics to treat the injured.
Late on Tuesday, ISIS militants were also reported to have taken the nearby town of Baiji, home to Iraq's largest oil refinery, but they now appear to have withdrawn in the face of army and police reinforcements.
US state department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said the situation in Iraq was "extremely serious" and that the US supported "a strong, co-ordinated response to push back against this aggression".
A spokesman for UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said he was "gravely concerned" by the situation.
But the BBC's Jim Muir says everything that has happened in Syria indicates that the West would not want to get involved in another Middle East quagmire.
ISIS fighter are pushing south, causing more people to flee the violence, as the BBC's Jim Muir reports
Heading to Kurdistan
Sources have told BBC Arabic that the displaced Mosul residents are heading to three towns in the nearby region of Kurdistan where authorities have set up temporary camps for them.
Kurdistan Prime Minister Nechirvan Barzani issued a statement appealing to the UN refugee agency for help.
In a televised announcement, Mr Maliki said that security forces had been placed on a state of "maximum alert".
He also said he had asked parliament to declare a state of emergency - which would broaden arrest powers and allow curfews to be imposed - and a "general mobilisation" of civilians.
Athil al-Nujaifi, the governor of Nineveh province where Mosul is located, has accused Mr Maliki of ignoring his advice on the security situation and instead relying on information from military in Baghdad.
Mr Nujaifi, a prominent critic of the prime minister, said he had begun steps to rebuild the security forces to retake the city from the militants.
Meanwhile Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari says Iraq faces a "serious, mortal threat".
Speaking on the sidelines of an EU-Arab League meeting in Athens, he said: "There has to be a quick response to what has happened."
Nouri Maliki: "The seriousness of the situation needs swift measures"
ISIS has significantly increased its reach within the past year.
Parts of Ramadi, the capital of Anbar province, and much of the nearby city of Falluja have been under its control since late December.
ISIS has also been informally controlling much of Nineveh province for months, and in the past week has attacked other areas of western and northern Iraq, killing scores of people.
The Iraqi government is struggling with a surge in sectarian violence that killed almost 800 people, including 603 civilians, in May alone, according to the UN. Last year, more than 8,860 people died.
The subject video with Dr. Peter Glidden makes that point and a few more. He also covers the fact that many doctors not only cling this discredited treatment, but make money off the chemotherapy drugs.
So now that this is public will it make a difference? Not much. I have made the point many times that we as a society are finished. It isn't the wars. It isn't the collapsing economy. It isn't the chemtrails or the drugs or the vaccines. It's the willful ignorance of the vast majority of Americans.
In my post “It's Over” of almost 2 years ago, I warned that, as our nation crumbles, we have to be prepared to watch friends, family and loved ones die. Nothing illustrates this better that those unfortunate souls who have been afflicted with this devil of a disease, relying on a “cure” that doesn't work and won't listen to that which does.
‘A study published in August 2003 revealed that of adult cancer in the USA and Australia, the use of chemotherapy, when looking at adjuvant and curative use, provided a cure only 2.1% of the time in the USA and 2.3% of the time in Australia.’
Yes, the Zombie Apocalypse has materialized and we are it.

You see them staggering down our streets, heads bowed as if in prayer making the occasional grunting noise. Mindless drooling de-animated human husks walking blindly into fountains, crosswalks and lamp posts. Wake up People. We are in the middle of a science fiction movie here. Welcome to the Invasion of the Phone Zombies.
Yes, the Zombie Apocalypse has materialized and we are it. Everywhere you look you find the deathlike trance- frozen faces of we necromantic slaves with twitching fingers. Spending endless empty hours mesmerized by our tiny screens. An entire society that can’t remember its own phone number, much less that of any significant other. Of course, compared to our magical phones, there are no significant others.
Our smart phones are being manipulated by some very dumb people. Sure, amazing things can be accomplished: check the weather patterns in Outer Mongolia. Translate French past participles into Farsi. Order a chess set made out of imitation crab meat in the shape of the characters from 12 Years a Slave and have it delivered to our house before getting back from work. But in the meantime, we are developing the attention span of high- speed lint. And the personalities.
The contagion has spread everywhere. Stall zombies in public rest rooms that hog the enclosed sanctum to play a quick round of Fruit Ninja. Or two. Nightlife zombies who ignore the jokes onstage so they can respond with multiple LOLs on their electronic leash. Tangentially ambulatory zombies who get into their car but refuse to leave parking spots until checking in with High Command. Vacation zombies who spend thousands of dollars to stare at their phones in distant exotic lands.
And we zombies have proved desperate to swell our ranks. Zombifying others via slide presentations of cute cats cavorting. Even attempting to recruit potential zombie converts through such subhuman treatment as incessant shame and humiliation. “Seriously. That’s your phone? Who made it: Daewoo? Is that the fabled rotary cell phone? Must be neat to have Teddy Roosevelt on your speed dial. Bet your roaming charges are huge. Play much ‘snake’ lately?”
While our forefingers develop biceps and our thumbs evolve to the size of zucchini, society continues its deep deterioration. Groups of friends who have lost the will to converse, huddling together solely for warmth and light. Drivers staring into their laps, their faces reflecting an eerie glow. Entire families walking past each other hypnotized by their devices, going days without engaging in any major argument.
Dealing with the chronically anesthetized is exhausting. Who hasn’t tired of politely turning after being addressed only to find it’s some zombie in a suit on a Bluetooth talking to himself? But the worst are the suited Bluetoothed elevator zombies. Shut your piehole dirtwipe. Nobody here cares to know how many units need to be transferred to Topeka byWednesday; we would pay good money to see some Topeka stuffed up your unit today.
In order to contain this pandemic, the CDC should issue a directive that encourages the unzombified to punch Bluetoothed elevator zombies right in their ear. Hard. Multiple times. And when the stupefied ones wake from their narcoleptic slumber and turn with confused expressions, inform them that it was all in the interest of the greater good. A blow for the sake of civilization itself.

COLLAPSE IS HERE AND GETTING WORSE
Many out there are focusing on a “Armageddon' style collapse for the U.S. Not to discount that probability, we need to look at what's happening now.
The subject article shows half of all wage earners are making less than $27,520 a year. If you live here in Tennessee, you can make it on that. If you live in New York or San Francisco, you cannot. I know from the job search experience of my wife, most jobs out there are starting at the $10 to $12 range. Obviously, with modest rentals costing $1000 a month and more, it is not difficult to see a slow “collapse” has been happening for many years.
I wish the future gave us some hope, but I don't see it. As long as we continue to pursue the same economic policies, we will continue our slide towards the cliff. Many of us have already gone over.

Half The Country Makes Less Than $27,520 A Year And 15 Other Signs The Middle Class Is Dying
If you make more than $27,520 a year at your job, you are doing better than half the country is. But you don’t have to take my word for it, you can check out the latest wage statistics from the Social Security administration right here. But of course $27,520 a year will not allow you to live “the American Dream” in this day and age. After taxes, that breaks down to a good bit less than $2,000 a month. You can’t realistically pay a mortgage, make a car payment, afford health insurance and provide food, clothing and everything else your family needs for that much money.
That is one of the reasons why both parents are working in most families today. In fact, sometimes both parents are working multiple jobs in a desperate attempt to make ends meet. Over the years, the cost of living has risen steadily but our paychecks have not. This has resulted in a steady erosion of the middle class. Once upon a time, most American families could afford a nice home, a couple of cars and a nice vacation every year. When I was growing up, it seemed like almost everyone was middle class. But now “the American Dream” is out of reach for more Americans than ever, and the middle class is dying right in front of our eyes.
One of the things that was great about America in the post-World War II era was that we developed a large, thriving middle class. Until recent times, it always seemed like there were plenty of good jobs for people that were willing to be responsible and work hard. That was one of the big reasons why people wanted to come here from all over the world. They wanted to have a chance to live “the American Dream” too.
But now the American Dream is becoming a mirage for most people. No matter how hard they try, they just can’t seem to achieve it.
And here are some hard numbers to back that assertion up. The following are 15 more signs that the middle class is dying…
#1 According to a brand new CNN poll, 59 percent of Americans believe that it has become impossible for most people to achieve the American Dream…
The American Dream is impossible to achieve in this country.
So say nearly 6 in 10 people who responded to CNNMoney’s American Dream Poll, conducted by ORC International. They feel the dream — however they define it — is out of reach.
Young adults, age 18 to 34, are most likely to feel the dream is unattainable, with 63% saying it’s impossible. This age group has suffered in the wake of the Great Recession, finding it hard to get good jobs.
#2 More Americans than ever believe that home ownership is not a key to long-term wealth and prosperity…
The great American Dream is dying. Even though many Americans still desire to own a home, they are losing faith in homeownership as a key to prosperity.
Nearly two-thirds of Americans, or 64%, believe they are less likely to build wealth by buying a home today than they were 20 or 30 years ago, according to a survey sponsored by non-profit MacArthur Foundation. And nearly 43% said buying a home is no longer a good long-term investment.
#4 52 percent of Americans cannot even afford the house that they are living in right now…
“Over half of Americans (52%) have had to make at least one major sacrifice in order to cover their rent or mortgage over the last three years, according to the “How Housing Matters Survey,” which was commissioned by the nonprofit John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation and carried out by Hart Research Associates. These sacrifices includegetting a second job, deferring saving for retirement, cutting back on health care, running up credit card debt, or even moving to a less safe neighborhood or one with worse schools.”
#5 According to the U.S. Census Bureau, only 36 percent of Americans under the age of 35 own a home. That is the lowest level that has ever been measured.
#7 The labor force participation rate for Americans from the age of 25 to the age of 29 has fallen to an all-time record low.
#8 The number of working age Americans that are not employed has increased by 27 million since the year 2000.
#9 According to the government’s own numbers, about 20 percent of the families in the entire country do not have a single member that is employed at this point.
#10 This may sound crazy, but 25 percent of all American adults do not even have a single penny saved up for retirement.
#11 As I noted in one recent article, total consumer credit in the United States has increased by 22 percent over the past three years, and 56 percent of all Americans have “subprime credit” at this point.
#14 According to one recent report, there are 49 million Americans that are dealing with food insecurity right now.
#15 Overall, the U.S. poverty rate is up more than 30 percent since 1966. It looks like LBJ’s war on poverty didn’t work out too well after all.
Sadly, it does not appear that there is much hope on the horizon for the middle class. More good jobs are being shipped out of the country and are being lost to technology every single day, and our politicians seem convinced that “business as usual” is the right course of action for our nation.
Unless something dramatic happens, it is going to become increasingly difficult to eke out a middle class existence as a “worker bee” in American society. The truth is that most big companies these days do not have any loyalty to their workers and really do not care what ends up happening to them.
To thrive in this kind of environment, new and different thinking is required. The paradigm of “go to college, get a job, stay loyal and retire after 30 years” has been shattered. The business world is more unstable now than it has been during any point in the post-World War II era, and we are all going to have to adjust.

DEPUTY KILLS SPECIAL NEEDS GIRL
Never call the police. How often I have said this and how often we see stories like this! According to the Police, this 18 year old girl had a knife and therefore she had to be killed. Let me say I have 2 daughters who obtained black belts in karate. There is no way a young girl with a knife would be able to do any harm to them or anyone else with special training.
On top of that, can we believe the story that this young girl would be so delusional as to attack armed police with a knife? Assuming that she did, is there any reason to believe deadly force was needed? Here's another question – If this young girl was such a threat with a knife, how come she didn't attack anyone else before the police arrived?
No, there are just too many stories on the thousands of police killings not to believe that this is just another one of those. If the police feel threatened if someone has a knife, why shouldn't we feel threatened if police arrive with loaded weapons? Never call the police. You have a 10 times greater chance of being killed by police than by a terrorist.

Family Calls 911 For Help With Special Needs Daughter, Cops Show Up And Shoot Her Dead
A family in California has been left reeling after their special needs daughter was shot dead by police following a 911 call for emergency medical assistance.
The San Mateo County sheriff’s department says that 18-year-old Yanira Serrano, who suffered from depression, was fatally shot Tuesday in Half Moon Bay after she lunged at a deputy with a knife.
The Sheriff’s department claims that they received a call regarding a violent armed woman in the street and were responding accordingly.
“There was a confrontation where the deputy was in fear for his life and as a result he fired his weapon.” Deputy Rebecca Rosenblatt told local news station KNTV, adding that the incident occurred within 20 seconds of arriving to the scene.
“We have deputies that were responding to the scene with the information that somebody was acting in a psychotic nature armed with a knife and won’t put it down even for her own family,” Rosenblatt added.
However, the girl’s brother, Tiny Serrano, told reporters that it was the family who called 911 requesting paramedics because his sister had not taken her medication.
“Instead they decided to send a deputy to the house,” he said.
The brother noted that Serrano would have never posed a threat to a law enformcement officer, and was only carrying a knife out of fear when she fled her home.
A ktvu report notes that neighbors suggested to reporters that Serrano was shot in the back by the deputy. The Sheriff’s department denies the allegation, but would not say where the teen was shot. They are also unaware whether or not the deputy ordered Serrano to drop the knife.
A cousin, Saul Miramontes, told KTVU that the family is devastated.
“I just feel kind of sad. I feel mad. I don’t know why an officer would come and do that and try to kill my cousin,” said Miramontes. “My cousin didn’t do nothing. For sure they could have Tasered her. They could have at least done something better.”
“She has special needs and we just want answers,” the girl’s brother urged. “Who are we supposed to call now when we need help when who is supposed to help us is killing our kids?”
“We want answers. Why didn’t they use a Taser?” he asked. “We just want to know what really happened.”
“She was really loving and caring, really sweet with my parents,” he said. “I still can’t believe this happened to my sister.”
A vigil held for Serrano last night turned into a protest march that ended at the San Mateo County sheriff’s sub-station.
The deputy who killed Serrano has been placed on paid administrative leave pending an investigation.

IS UKRAINE GOVERNMENT LOSING THE CIVIL WAR?
The answer might take years, but some events today may give some insight. According to the subject article, some of the government bases in the east of Ukraine were lost to the rebels. On top of that, whatever weapons that were there became the property of the rebels.
Remember 10 days ago when the newly elected President of Ukraine said the operation would be over in hours? How'd that work out? Now this same man said he would offer amnesty and elections if the rebellion would stop. Why would he give concessions if a military victory is just around the corner? The obvious answer is, no military victory is in sight. The best they can hope for is a long and expensive stalemate.
It's amazing how many times the Vietnam experience has repeated itself. I remember how many times our government masters said then, victory was in sight. No matter what, there can be no absolute military victory over a population that hates you. Another unnecessary war that will turn out badly.

Ukraine Separatists Seize Government Bases, Several Killed
| By NEBI QENA and MONIKA SCISLOWSKA
Posted: 06/04/2014 8:36 am EDT Updated: 17 minutes ago
LUHANSK, Ukraine (AP) — Pro-Russian insurgents captured three government bases in eastern Ukraine in a series of humiliating defeats for the beleaguered armed forces on Wednesday, as the president-elect promised new initiatives to help end the mutiny in the country's industrial heartland.
Petro Poroshenko, speaking in Warsaw after meeting with President Barack Obama and other Western leaders, rejected a call from Ukraine's interim authorities to introduce martial law in the restive east, saying he would seek to pacify the region with an offer of amnesty and a promise of early regional elections.
Poroshenko's overture, expected to be detailed in his inaugural address on Saturday, came as the Ukrainian troops suffered a series of embarrassing setbacks on Wednesday.
National Guard forces ran out of ammunition and had to flee their base near the eastern city of Luhansk after hours of battle in which six militants were killed and three Ukrainian servicemen were injured.
The defeat came as rebel forces seized a border guard headquarters on the city's outskirts after besieging it for two days, then forced guards out of another base in the nearby town of Sverdlovsk on the Russian border. The guards there were granted safe passage and left with their weapons.
The setbacks highlighted the ineffectiveness of Ukraine's badly trained and cash-starved armed forces, which also have been plagued by bad communication and poor supply lines.
Ukraine's provisional authorities have blamed the recent military failures on pro-Russia former President Viktor Yanukovych, claiming that his corrupt government starved soldiers of resources and training.
The fund shortage is so desperate that the Defense Ministry had to set up a charity account to support the armed forces while volunteers across the country have been buying provisions for the soldiers.
Obama, in Warsaw for a celebration on the 25th anniversary of Poland's first partially free election, praised Poroshenko for reaching out to the east, while offering $5 million in new aid for Ukraine's military — for equipment that could help in the fight against the insurgents.
The White House said the aid would include, for the first time, body armor and night-vision goggles for the use of troops. The United States already has provided ready-to-eat meals and money for medical supplies and other non-lethal assistance, including clothing, sleeping bags and generators.
Many Ukrainian units in the east are manned by poorly-trained conscripts, who come from the region and appear reluctant to engage the rebels.
In the skirmishes overnight into Wednesday, Alexei Toporov, a spokesman for the insurgents in Luhansk, said the guards were fleeing, and the insurgents did not try to detain them.
"We released them and let them go home, we impeded nobody," he said. "They left their weapons, and this base is now coming under the control of the Luhansk People's Republic."
A rebel fighter who gave only his first name, Andrei, said the insurgents wanted to create a "humanitarian corridor" that would allow civilians to flee to Russia to escape the fighting.
An Associated Press reporter saw pro-Russian militia carrying crates of ammunition and explosives out of the base on Wednesday and driving away in border guards' cars. Ukraine's Border Guard Service said that the troops from that outpost had been evacuated to unspecified "safe locations."
The fighting in the east has escalated following the May 25 presidential vote won by Poroshenko, with rebels launching an attack on a major airport, shooting down a government helicopter, and besieging a number of military bases.
Trying to regain the initiative, Ukrainian troops on Tuesday launched an offensive against pro-Russian insurgents in Slovyansk, a city that sits on a strategic highway about 90 kilometers (55 miles) north of Donetsk, the largest city in the east. Vladislav Seleznyov, a government spokesman for the anti-rebel operation, said two government soldiers were killed and 42 injured in daylong fighting. Seleznyov put the death toll of the rebels at 300, but the insurgents rejected his claim.
In Kiev, Interim President Oleksandr Turchynov — who will hand over to Poroshenko on Saturday — asked Ukraine's Security and Defense Council late Tuesday to consider imposing martial law in parts of eastern Ukraine in a bid to stabilize the situation.
Poroshenko dismissed that idea, saying that it would not serve peace efforts in the east.
Speaking in English, Poroshenko said he will use his inauguration to make a proposal to restore law, order and peace. It would include a wide amnesty, and the "creation of the conditions for early local elections," as part of efforts to reform Ukraine's local administrations.
Poroshenko and Russian President Vladimir Putin will be among many world leaders in France this week to attend events commemorating the 70th anniversary of the Allied invasion of Normandy in World War II.
There were no immediate plans for the two leaders to meet there, Poroshenko said, while adding: "Everything is possible."
Asked if he's ready to meet with Poroshenko in Normandy, Putin said in an interview with French media that was broadcast Wednesday that "I don't plan to evade anyone."
"I think Mr. Poroshenko, who has no blood on his hands so far, has a unique chance to halt this punitive operation now and start a dialogue with people in southeastern Ukraine." Putin said.
He said that he's also ready to meet with Obama despite sharp U.S.-Russian differences over Ukraine. "I am always ready for dialogue, and I think that dialogue is the best way to bridge any gaps," he said.
Putin accused the West of triggering the Ukrainian crisis by backing the ouster of Yanukovych, and again denied Ukrainian and Western claims that Russia has sent its agents to foment the mutiny in eastern Ukraine. "There are no armed forces, no Russian 'instructors' in southeastern Ukraine. There never have been."
Monika Scislowska reported from Warsaw. Nedra Pickler in Warsaw and Nataliya Vasilyeva and Vladimir Isachenkov in Moscow contributed to this report.

NEW FLU VACCINE FILLED WITH DEADLY MERCURY
To be exact, there is 25,000 times the allowed limit set for drinking water. That is according to the subject article.
O.K., so what? As has become the case with most issues today, very few care. Yes, autism has exploded from 1 in 25,000 to 1 in 60. Never mind, just drag little Johnny or little Susie in to the doctor for their vaccine. And if that's not enough, we'll make sure our children have 20 or 30 or more vaccines, that don't work, and are very dangerous.
So it is frustrating. It is one thing if an adult, with all of this information at their disposal, still wants to play Russian Roulette with their health. It's another to watch them sacrifice their children at the altar of government compliance. I wish they would make a vaccine that would cure apathy and cowardice.

Natural News tests flu vaccine for heavy metals, finds 25,000 times higher mercury level than EPA limit for water
June 3, 2014 1:24 AM EDT
Mercury tests conducted on vaccines at the Natural News Forensic Food Lab have revealed a shockingly high level of toxic mercury in an influenza vaccine (flu shot) made by GlaxoSmithKline (lot #9H2GX)
Tests conducted via ICP-MS document mercury in the Flulaval vaccine at a shocking 51 parts per million, or over 25,000 times higher than the maximum contaminant level of inorganic mercury in drinking water set by the EPA.(1)
The tests were conducted via ICP-MS using a 4-point mercury calibration curve for accuracy. Even then, the extremely high level of mercury found in this flu shot was higher than anything we’ve ever tested, including tuna and ocean fish which are known for high mercury contamination.
In fact, the concentration of mercury found in this GSK flu shot was 100 times higher than the highest level of mercury we’ve ever tested in contaminated fish. And yet vaccines are injected directly into the body, making them many times more toxic than anything ingested orally. As my previous research into foods has already documented, mercury consumed orally is easily blocked by eating common foods like strawberries or peanut butter, both of which bind with and capture about 90% of dietary mercury.
Here are the actual results of what we found in the influenza vaccine from GSK (lot #9H2GX):
Aluminum: 0.4 ppm
Mercury: 51 ppm
All tests were conducted via calibrated, high-end ICP-MS instrumentation as shown in these lab videos.
Doctors, pharmacists and mainstream media continue to lie about mercury in vaccines
As you take in the scientifically-validated fact that mercury exists at very high concentrations in flu vaccines, keep in mind that most doctors, pharmacists and members of the mainstream media continue to stage an elaborate lie that claims mercury has “already been removed from vaccines.”
Never mind the fact that the use of mercury is admitted right on the package containing the vaccine vial. And now, Natural News has scientifically confirmed the mercury content of flu vaccines using high-end laboratory instrumentation. The existence of high mercury in flu shots is irrefutable.
Anyone who claims mercury has been removed from all vaccines is either wildly ignorant or willfully lying. And anyone who would knowingly allow themselves to be injected with mercury is probably already a victim of the kind of brain damage well known to be caused by mercury.
Insert admits “no controlled trials”
Shockingly, the package insert for this flu shot readily admits the vaccine has never been subjected to scientific clinical trials:
“There have been no controlled trials adequately demonstrating a decrease in influenza disease after vaccination with Flulaval,” the package insert claims in tiny text (that no one reads).
This is printed right on the insert, yet no one in the mainstream media will ever report this astonishing admission. This statement, all by itself, is a confession that flu shot marketing is a fraud.
Across the board, flu shots are heavily propagandized and promoted with the implication that they have zero risks while offering 100% protection. No one in the mainstream media ever questions this claim even though the package insert openly admits the claim is complete hokum and has never been subjected to scientific scrutiny.
No evidence of safety or effectiveness in pregnant women
But that’s not all the insert admits. It also says:
“Safety and effectiveness of Flulaval have not been established in pregnant women, nursing mothers or children.”
And yet everywhere you go in America, there’s a Walgreens, CVS or Wal-Mart pharmacy promoting flu shots for pregnant women. Never mind the fact that flu shot safety has never been established in pregnant women, and never mind the obvious fact that you should never inject a pregnant women with mercury in the first place!
Who needs scientific proof when you’ve got the full propaganda of the media and the government to back you up? Anyone who dares question the scientific validity of flu shot safety for pregnant women is immediately attacked as being an opponent of all vaccines.
Apparently, the only requirement to be accepted by the vaccine community is to believe in medical fairy tales while abandoning all critical thinking and scientific skepticism. In the vaccine industry, genuine science is simply not allowed. No wonder two former Merck virologists filed a False Claims Act with the federal government, accusing the company of knowingly fabricating its vaccine efficacy data to trick the FDA.
Never proven safe or effective in children, either
Flu shots are heavily promoted for children, right alongside mumps and measles vaccines. But it turns out flu shots are never scientifically tested for safety or efficacy in children.
Check out what the insert for this vaccine directly admits:
“Safety and effectiveness of Flulaval in pediatric patients have not been established.”
It’s right there in black and white… an open admission. Yet flu shots are aggressively marketed to parents and children as if they were Tic-Tacs. The real beauty of the entire vaccine industry scam is that no scientific evidence is required! You don’t have to have any proof, all you have to do is believe in vaccines as a matter of faith.
Never tested for cancer risk
Do flu shots cause cancer? The honest, scientific answer is that these shots are never tested for that. As the insert readily admits:
“Flulaval has not been evaluated for carcinogenic or mutagenic potential, or for impairment of fertility.”
Believe it or not, the Flulaval vaccine also warns that no one should be given this shot if they’ve already received another flu shot at some previous time:
“Do not administer Flulaval to anyone… following previous administration of any influenza vaccine.”
And yet, amazingly, people are encouraged to get flu shots year after year, even though the package insert directly warns against anyone taking a series of influenza vaccines.
Admission that flu shots contain formaldehyde and sodium deoxycholate
The same insert that admits this vaccine has never been proven safe in children or pregnant women also openly admits that it contains neurotoxic chemicals.
Per the insert, each dose of Flulaval contains up to 25 mcg of formaldehyde (a neurotoxin) and up to 50 mcg of sodium deoxycholate.
This is on top of the 25 mcg of mercury you’ll get in every dose. And remember, this is mercury that’s injected directly into your body, so you absorb 100% of this mercury (unlike mercury you eat, where most of it sticks to food fibers and is transported out of your body).
Total admission that flu shots cause seizures, convulsions and Guillian-Barre syndrome
Ever wonder what all these toxic chemicals and heavy metals cause in humans? Flu shots vaccines, it turns out, are already known to cause a huge number of devastating health effects.
Predictably, there is a massive disinfo campaign across the mainstream media, Wikipedia, medical journals and government propaganda agencies (CDC, FDA, etc.) to pretend that flu shots have no risks whatsoever. Yet the insert that comes with the vaccine openly admits the flu shot has been linked with a long, frightening list of serious adverse effects. As this Flulaval insert says (see photo below):
“In addition to reports in clinical trials, the following adverse events have been identified during postapproval use of Flulaval…
Here’s a photo of this section of the package insert, complete with the GlaxoSmithKline toll-free phone number:
If you take flu shots, you are being poisoned by quacks
The upshot of all this is that flu shots utterly lack any scientific evidence of safety of efficacy. We don’t know if they work at all, in other words, and neither does the vaccine manufacturer. Neither do the doctors or medical staff who administer them. Flu vaccines are injected into people purely as a matter of blind faith in the very same companies that have already been convicted of felony crimes.
Trusting a flu shot made by a corporation of felons is a lot like trusting the purity of heroin you buy from a street dealer. Both flu shots and street heroin have at least one thing in common, by the way: neither has ever been tested for safety.
We also know that flu shots contain neurotoxic chemicals and heavy metals in alarming concentrations. This is irrefutable scientific fact. We also know that there is no “safe” form of mercury just like there is no safe form of heroin — all forms of mercury are highly toxic when injected into the body (ethyl, methyl, organic, inorganic).
The only people who argue with this are those who are already mercury poisoned and thus incapable of rational thought. Mercury damages brain function, you see, which is exactly what causes some people to be tricked into thinking vaccines are safe and effective.
Technically, you’d have to be stupid to believe such a thing, as the vaccine insert directly tells you precisely the opposite.
Share this story, spread the truth
Share this story with everyone who needs to know the truth about flu vaccines. This message needs to get out. Every fact stated in this article is 100% true and verified. The quotes from the Flulaval package insert are on-the-record statements from GlaxoSmithKline.
And for the record, I am not an opponent of the theory of vaccination. What I’m against is the continued use of toxic heavy metals and chemicals in vaccines. I’m also opposed to the wildly fraudulent marketing of vaccines. If any other product were marketed with the same lies and deceptions as vaccines, they would be immediately charged with fraud and misrepresentation by the FTC. But somehow when the vaccine industry commits routine fraud, everybody pretends it isn’t happening.
Even with all the marketing fraud taking place, if the vaccine manufacturers would stop poisoning the population with vaccine additives (by removing mercury, formaldehyde and other chemicals from their products), nearly all opposition to vaccines would rapidly disappear.
I had to put a question mark after this headline as this is too hard to comprehend. None-the-less this is not new. Throughout the post WWII era, some who were high up in the military and government, have recommended an attack on Russia.
The so-called Northwoods document from the early 1960's recommended killing astronaut John Glen and blaming it on Cuba. In 1967 Israel attacked the USS Liberty in international waters. It was the plan of President Lyndon Johnson to blame this on Egypt. It was reported that during the latter days of the Watergate scandal, President Richard Nixon was prepared to launch a nuclear attack on the Soviet Union. He was reportedly stopped by General Alexander Haig.
It is difficult to come to grips with the fact that some of those in high places are insane, but we must. Giving those people unlimited power and money and then ignoring them is a blueprint for the destruction of this planet. So, are they seriously considering this? Probably. Let's pray that they get no further than the planning stage.
The main question is not why the head of The Department of Veterans Affairs resigned, but why President Obama did not. Once again the President was caught in still another lie. There is hardly a day that goes by where this President doesn't lie about something.
The subject article covers information provided to the then, candidate Obama, outlining the scandal at the Department of Veterans Affairs. He knew, and yes, George Jr., knew and did nothing about it. Actually, the neglect and attacks on veterans is far worse than that which has made its' way into the mainstream news. The dangers of Agent Orange were known even before its' use in Vietnam and yet was denied by the government well into the 1980's. Gulf War syndrome has affected over 400,000 veterans and is still being ignored by the government. The use of depleted uranium causing cancer in 100's of thousands is being ignored.
O.K. Enough of this. This is still the question for those in the military. Do you really want to serve these people? Do you really want to risk you life for them and their trumped up wars? Maybe those who served in Vietnam can be excused for their ignorance, but you who serve today should know better. You deserve better and should accept no less.

He KNEW! Obama told of Veterans Affairs health care debacle as far back as 2008
He KNEW! Obama told of Veterans Affairs health care...
Washington Times' Alex Swoyer reports that the Obama administration had notice of the Veterans Affairs wait time issue since 2008.
President Barack Obama autographs a banner while visiting a wounded service member at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md., June 28, 2012. (Official White House Photo by Pete Souza) This official White House photograph is being made available only for publication by news organizations and/or for personal use printing by the subject(s) of the photograph. The photograph may not be manipulated in any way and may not be used in commercial or political materials, advertisements, emails, products, promotions that in any way suggests approval or endorsement of the President, the First Family, or the White House.
The Obama administration received clear notice more than five years ago that VA medical facilities were reporting inaccurate waiting times and experiencing scheduling failures that threatened to deny veterans timely health care — problems that have turned into a growing scandal.
Veterans Affairs officials warned the Obama-Biden transition team in the weeks after the 2008 presidential election that the department shouldn’t trust the wait times that its facilities were reporting.
“This is not only a data integrity issue in which [Veterans Health Administration] reports unreliable performance data; it affects quality of care by delaying — and potentially denying — deserving veterans timely care,” the officials wrote.
The briefing materials, obtained by The Washington Times through the Freedom of Information Act, make clear that the problems existed well before Mr. Obama took office, dating back at least to the Bush administration. But the materials raise questions about what actions the department took since 2009 to remedy the problems.
In recent months, reports have surfaced about secret wait lists at facilities across the country and, in the case of a Phoenix VA facility, accusations that officials cooked the books to try to hide long wait times. Some families said veterans died while on a secret wait list at the Phoenix facility.
Last week, Dr. Robert Petzel, undersecretary for health in the Department of Veterans Affairs, resigned. His boss, Secretary Eric K. Shinseki, told Congress he will stay despite growing calls for his resignation.
Mr. Shinseki, a disabled veteran, has headed the department since the beginning of Mr. Obama’s first term, when the VA report identified many of the problems.
“Should they have known? Absolutely, they should have known,” said Deirdre Parke Holleman, executive director of the Washington office for the Retired Enlisted Association, a veterans group, which has not taken a position on whether Mr. Shinseki should resign. “These are problems that should have been dealt with.”
In particular, the 2008 transition report referred to a VA inspector general recommendation to test the accuracy of reported waiting times.
Such tests, the report noted, could prompt action if results reveal “questionable differences” between the dates shown in medical records and dates in the Veterans Health Administration’s scheduling system. It’s unclear whether that recommendation was adopted because VA officials have not responded to request for comment.
In Phoenix, officials are looking into whether as many as 40 veterans died while waiting for treatment, with “secret wait lists” used to conceal the delays. Speaking in the Republicans’ weekly address over the weekend, Sen. John McCain, Arizona Republican, said the scandal began in his home state but it has since “gone nationwide.”
“Altogether, similar reports of lengthy waiting lists and other issues have surfaced in at least 10 states,” he said.
Acting VA Inspector General Richard J. Griffin told Congress last week that his office has opened multiple investigations into “reports of manipulated waiting times” in Phoenix as at other facilities.
He said his investigation also aims to find out whether officials in Phoenix purposely left off the names of veterans waiting for care on electronic waiting lists and, if so, whether any veterans died because of the delays in care.
Problems with electronic waiting lists also merited mention in the presidential briefing report.
“Audits of outpatient scheduling and patient waiting times completed since 2005 have identified noncompliance with the policies and procedures for scheduling, inaccurate reporting of patient waiting times and errors in [electronic waiting lists],” the briefing papers state.
Briefing reports typically are prepared by career federal employees before a change in power, giving incoming administrations detailed looks at agency operations. The VA report notes that little was done to address the problems surrounding scheduling and wait time accuracy during the George W. Bush administration.
“Although VHA has recognized the need to improve scheduling practices and the accuracy of wait times data, no meaningful action has been taken to achieve this goal today,” officials wrote.
In fact, officials added, nine recommendations arising from inspector general audits from 2005 to 2007 were not implemented by 2008 when officials prepared the report for the incoming administration.
Jim Nicholson, who served as VA secretary during the latter half of the Bush administration, could not be reached for comment.
The briefing materials do not reveal any concerns about outright fraud in manipulating waiting times, but they make repeated references in summarizing past audits and reviews about data accuracy.
“This report and prior reports indicate that the problems and causes associated with scheduling, waiting times and wait lists are systemic throughout the VHA,” officials told the incoming administration.
Testifying to Congress last week, Mr. Shinseki said most veterans are satisfied with their health care, “but we must do more to improve the timely access to that care.”
The American Legion has called on Mr. Shinseki and Allison Hickey, VA undersecretary for benefits, to resign.
“They are both part of VA’s leadership problem,” American Legion Commander Daniel Dellinger said in a statement Friday. “This isn’t personal. VA needs a fundamental shift in leadership if it is to defeat its systematic lack of accountability.”

WE'LL ATTACK ANYONE, ANYWHERE, AT ANY TIME
This was the thrust of the Obama speech at West Point. I know, he didn't use those exact words, but in the speech, he did say he reserves the right to respond anywhere in the world where our vital interests are at stake. Of course, he decides what vital interests are.
Obama also took credit for killing Osama bin Laden, who actually died in 2001. Then he said U.S. troops will be out of Afghanistan by the end of this year, but 14,000 will still be there ---more double talk. Oh well, it's only been 13 years.
Fortunately, those graduates at West Point gave the “Fraud and Chief” a very cool reception. Here's a question: Would you die for this man? If not, why do we expect our military to risk their lives in sending them all over the world looking for trouble.
The subject article answers this question. As one might guess, the answer is not encouraging. All across America retail sales are plummeting while those losing jobs continues to grow.
Is there a solution? Of course there is, but don't expect any of our government masters to do it. So there it is. It will continue to get worse for the foreseeable future. Unless and until millions in America demand better from our government masters, or better still get rid of all of them, the bottom for all of us is still a long way off.

Has The Next Recession Already Begun For America’s Middle Class?
Has the next major economic downturn already started? The way that you would answer that question would probably depend on where you live. If you live in New York City, or the suburbs of Washington D.C., or you work for one of the big tech firms in the San Francisco area, you would probably respond to such a question by saying of course not. In those areas, the economy is doing great and prices for high end homes are still booming. But in most of the rest of the nation, evidence continues to mount that the next recession has already begun for the poor and the middle class. As you will read about below, major retailers had an absolutely dreadful start to 2014 and home sales are declining just as they did back in 2007 before the last financial crisis. Meanwhile, the U.S. economy continues to lose more good jobs and 20 percent of all U.S. families do not have a single member that is employed at this point. 2014 is turning out to be eerily similar to 2007
During the first quarter of 2014, earnings by major U.S. retailers missed estimates by the biggest margin in 13 years. The “retail apocalypse” continues to escalate, and the biggest reason for this is the fact that middle class consumers in the U.S. are tapped out. And this is not just happening to a few retailers – this is something that is happening across the board. The following is a summary of how major U.S. retailers performed in the first quarter of 2014 that was put together
This is precisely what shouldn’t have happened but was destined to happen: Sales of existing homes have gotten clobbered since last fall. At first, the Fiscal Cliff and the threat of a US government default – remember those zany times? – were blamed, then polar vortices were blamed even while home sales in California, where the weather had been gorgeous all winter, plunged more than elsewhere.
Then it spread to new-home sales: in April, they dropped 4.7% from a year ago, after March’s year-over-year decline of 4.9%, and February’s 2.8%. Not a good sign: the April hit was worse than February’s, when it was the weather’s fault. Yet April should be the busiest month of the year (
We have already seen that in some markets, in California for example, sales have collapsed at the lower two-thirds of the price range, with the upper third thriving. People who earn median incomes are increasingly priced out of the market, and many potential first-time buyers have little chance of getting in. In San Diego, for example, sales of homes below $200,000 plunged 46% while the upper end is doing just fine.
As Richter noted, sales of upper end homes are still doing fine in many areas.
But how long will that be able to continue if things continue to get even worse for the poor and the middle class? Traditionally, the U.S. economy has greatly depended upon consumer spending by the middle class. If that continues to dry up, how long can we avoid falling into a recession? For even more numbers that seem to indicate economic trouble for the middle class, please see my previous article entitled “
We’re turning down anew. The first quarter should revise into negative territory… and I believe the second quarter will report negative as well.
That will all happen by July 30 when you have the annual revisions to the GDP. In reality the economy is much weaker than that. Economic growth is overstated with the GDP because they understate inflation, which is used in deflating the number…
What we’re seeing now is just… we’ve been barely stagnant and bottomed out… but we’re turning down again.
The reason for this is that the consumer is strapped… doesn’t have the liquidity to fuel the growth in consumption.
Income… the median household income, net of inflation, is as low as it was in 1967. The average guy is not staying ahead of inflation…
This has been a problem now for decades… You were able to buy consumption from the future by borrowing more money, expanding your debt. Greenspan saw the problem was income, so he encouraged debt expansion.
That all blew apart in 2007/2008… the income problems have continued, but now you don’t have the ability to borrow money
the way you used to. Without that and the income problems remaining, there’s no way that consumption can grow faster than inflation if income isn’t.
As a result – personal consumption is more than two thirds of the economy – there’s no way you can have positive sustainable growth in the U.S. economy without the consumer being healthy.
The key to the health of the middle class is having plenty of good jobs.
But the U.S. economy continues to lose more good paying jobs.
For example, Hewlett-Packard has just announced that it plans to eliminate
16,000 more jobs in addition to the 34,000 job cuts that have already been announced.
Today, there are
27 million more working age Americans that do not have a job than there were in 2000, and the quality of our jobs continues to decline.
This is absolutely
destroying the middle class. Unless the employment situation in this country starts to turn around, there does not seem to be much hope that the middle class will recover any time soon.
Meanwhile, there are emerging signs of trouble for the wealthy as well.
For instance, just like we witnessed back in 2007, things are starting to look a bit shaky at the “too big to fail” banks. The following is an excerpt from a recent
In recent weeks, officials at JPMorgan Chase and Barclays also both reported likely drops in trading revenue. JPMorgan said it expected a decline of 20 percent of the quarter, while Barclays anticipates a 41 percent drop, prompting it to announce mass layoffs that will pare 19,000 jobs by the end of 2016.
Remember, very few people expected a recession the last time around either. In fact, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke repeatedly promised us that we would not have a recession and then we went on to experience the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression.
It will be the same this time as well. Just like in 2007, we will continue to get an endless supply of “hopetimism” from our politicians and the mainstream media, and they will continue to fill our heads with visions of rainbows, unicorns and economic prosperity for as far as the eyes can see.
But then the next recession will strike and most Americans will be completely blindsided by it.

CHINA AND VIETNAM CLOSE TO WAR
As of this writing, there are several flashpoints around the world that could lead to hot war. Just yesterday, a Chinese naval vessel rammed a Vietnamese fishing boat, causing it to sink.
It is obvious to all now, the U.S. and NATO are looking to control the world. This has been the dream of the leaders of empires ever since there were empires. Of course, Russia and China know they are not going to share in that power and are in the way. So what is the best way for Russia and China to avoid being swept aside by western allies?
One only has to look at the writings of Julius Caesar. He wrote “divide and conquer”. All previous empires seeking world domination failed because of over extension. Military strategists have warned against fighting 2 front wars. So all Russia and China has to do is to start several military operations in multiple areas at the same time.
So, what happens if: there is war with China/Vietnam, China/Japan, China/Taiwan, China/ Philippines, Russia/Ukraine, Libya revolution, Syria crushing the rebels, Somalia revolution, Chad, Nigeria, Sudan, Uganda, Kenya, upheaval, Iran, Lebanon, Syria war with Israel, Pakistan and India war and so on? Now what happens if some or all of these ally themselves with Russia and China? In the end, the longer Russia and China wait, the stronger they get and the weaker the U.S. gets. The best way to get the world united, is to have one empire try to conquer them.

China Attacks, Sinks Vietnamese Fishing Vessel, Situation “Very Tense”
As if global investors needed another excuse to buy stocks, China has escalated geopolitical tensions to 11 on the Spinal Tap amplifier of seriousness. With over 70 vessels in and around the Paracel Islands – where China has provocatively placed an oil rig in disputed Vietnamese territorial waters – it was only a matter of time before the blue touch paper was lit. As Yahoo Japan reports, a Vietnamese fishing vessel has sunk after being rammed by a Chinese vessel and the 10 fishermen have been rescued. While Vietnam has not responded yet, theCoast Guard warned “the situation at the site it very tense.”
According to new information received, at 16 am on 26/5, the Chinese fishing boat collided number 11209 90 152 DNA sinking fishing boats of fishermen in South southwest of Da Nang, Hai Duong rig – rig by 981 and 17 nm , is a traditional fishing grounds, under the exclusive economic zone and continental shelf of Vietnam.
10/10 fishermen on board the ship Da Nang we picked and safe rescue.
At the time of the incident, there are 40 Chinese fishing boats surrounded unruly group of our vessels.
As Bloomberg reports,
Chinese vessel attacks, sinks Vietnamese fishing boat with 10 crew members yday, Vietnam News reports, without saying where it got the information.

Red line Mr Obama? Japan was quick to respond:
*SUGA: PROMISED TO COOPERATE WITH VIETNAM ON MARITIME SAFETY
*SUGA: PREPARING FOR MARITIME SAFETY COOPERATION WITH VIETNAM
Meanwhile, the two sides are also tossing verbal grenades…
Vietnam’s Foreign Ministry held a press conference on Friday when officials stressed the country’s historical claim to the Paracels.
“Historical and legal evidence shows that Vietnam has absolute sovereignty in the Paracel and Spratly archipelagos,” said Tran Duy Hai, deputy head of Vietnam’s National Border Committee.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang disagreed.
“Seeing that the Vietnamese Foreign Ministry held a press conference last Friday on the subject, I felt it was extremely ridiculous,” he said at a briefing on Monday. “The Paracels are the indisputable territory of the Chinese people.”

WHEN YOUR CHURCH WORSHIPS THE GOVERNMENT
Monday is Memorial Day. This is a holiday that is supposed to honor U.S. military veterans. Our churches, however, have taken this to a new level. Now, this isn't all churches, but based on my experience, it is most churches. The Sundays before Memorial Day or the 4th of July or other government holidays is a good opportunity for churches to spend time in worshiping the government.
We can look forward to singing God Bless America or America the beautiful. We can look forward to listening to a sermon how wonderful all the wars in which the U.S. fights are. We can learn that all who wear a military uniform are heroes, no matter what they do. Not much room for Jesus in those scenarios.
Here's how I handle it. If that starts up in any church I attend, I get up and leave. If I hear this will be happening before I attend, I don't go. I also write or email the Pastor outlining my objection to the mixture of God and government. They are not equal. Too bad so many of our churches don't know that.
The list to which I am referring, is the list of nations in which the U.S. has interfered militarily, caused continual killing and chaos, and plunged them into the 3rd world.
That list includes Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen, Ukraine, Serbia, Bosnia and Kosovo. Drones, missiles, tanks and military weapons ( most supplied by the U.S.) are everyday life in more and more nations. Just today, a so-called rogue General in Libya has attacked their parliament building. Unfortunately, for that government, there is no popular support. So now, they are the verge of being overthrown, but never fear, U.S. military forces are moving into that area --- again.
I could go on about this, but let me go in a different direction. As all of this goes on, there are videos on Youtube showing how little the average American cares about this or anything else of substance. Those of us who are concerned are a tiny minority. The reason the U.S. as we know it, will collapse, is because of its' citizens. Today's American is the most uninvolved, apathetic citizen in its' history. That is why evil is running wild. And make no mistake, the ultimate goal of evil is destruction-- destruction of the economy, destruction of our nation and the destruction of you and me. Now, back to basketball.
The attached video shows an apology from a representative of the Janesville, Wisconsin, school district, regarding the showing of a pro gay video to primary school students.
Whether it's the NFL or the NBA or TV or movies or music or the U.S. Government or, now, public schools, the agenda is unmistakeable. I didn't want to get involved in this “Gay-Straight” thing as there are so many issues that are more important, but they just won't stop. 50 years ago the gay lobby just wanted to be tolerated. Today, they want to be celebrated. 50 years ago they proudly proclaimed that they didn't recruit. Today, as is evidenced by the recent video, they are recruiting and they are recruiting our children.
What ever happened to reading, writing and arithmetic? No. No time for that. We have to show 8 years olds how wonderful it is for 2 men or 2 women to have sex with each other. O.K. I guess we have to publicly oppose this crap. I, for one, do not want my children to be taught sex, by strangers in charge of public education. If any parent disagrees, there are plenty of outlets outside of school for them to pursue that. They can have their “education”. Just don't force it on me.
By the way, aren't these the same people who go crazy if a student reads a Bible or mentions the name of Jesus?
I'm not sure if there are actually that many cars unsold, as the industry keeps this as quiet as possible, but the subject article and pictures shows an impending disaster looming in the auto industry.
In port after port, all around the world inventories of unsold cars are piling up. 30,000 here and 40,000 there, these new vehicles are just being parked while factories continue to build more. The problem is, fewer and fewer people have enough money to buy a new car. Who has 25 or 30 thousand dollars laying around? When you have 100 million adults in the U.S. alone not working, a new car is the last thing on their minds.
So our government masters and their corporate friends, use government bailouts and easy credit to keep this “auto Titanic” afloat a little longer. So, what happens when millions of cars are repossessed along with those that are unsold? Well, there will be great deals out there. That is if anyone has any money left.
Bruce New World Order News
Above is just a few of the thousands upon thousands of unsold cars at Sheerness, United Kingdom. Please do see this on Google Maps....type in Sheerness, United Kingdom. Look to the west coast, below River Thames next to River Medway. Left of A249, Brielle Way.
Timestamp: Friday, May16th, 2014.
There are hundreds of places like this in the world today and they keep on piling up...
THE WORLDS UNSOLD CAR STOCKPILE
Houston...We have a problem!...Nobody is buying brand new cars anymore! Well they are, but not on the scale they once were. Millions of brand new unsold cars are just sitting redundant on runways and car parks around the world. There, they stay, slowly deteriorating without being maintained.
Below is an image of a massive car park at Swindon, United Kingdom, with thousands upon thousands of unsold cars just sitting there with not a buyer in sight. The car manufacturers have to buy more and more land just to park their cars as they perpetually roll off the production line.
There is proof that the worlds recession is still biting and wont let go. All around the world there are huge stockpiles of unsold cars and they are being added to every day. They have run out of space to park all of these brand new unsold cars and are having to buy acres and acres of land to store them.
The images on this webpage showing all of these unsold cars are just a very small portion of those around the world. There are literally thousands of these "car parks" rammed full of unsold cars in practically every country on the planet. Just in case you were wondering, these images have not been Photoshopped, they are the real deal!
Its hard to believe that there are so many unsold cars in the world but its true. The worse part is that the amount of unsold cars keeps on getting bigger every day.
It would be fair to say that it is becoming a mechanical epidemic of epic proportions. If anybody from outer space is reading this webpage, we here on Earth have too many cars, why not come and buy a few hundred thousand of them for your own planet! (sorry but this is all I can think of)
Below is shown just a few of the 57,000 cars (and growing) that await delivery from their home in the Port of Baltimore, Maryland, U.S.A. With Google Maps look South of Broening Hwy in Dundalk for the massive expanse of space where all these cars are parked up.
The car industry would never sell these cars at massive reductions in their prices to get rid of them, no they still want every buck. If they were to price these cars for a couple of thousand they would sell them. However, nobody would then buy any expensive cars and then they would end up being unsold. Its quite a pickle we have gotten ourselves into.
Below is shown an image of the Nissan test track in Sunderland United Kingdom. Only it is no longer being used, reason...there are too many unsold cars parked up on it! The amount of cars keeps on piling up on it until its overflowing. Nissan then acquires more land to park up the cars, as they continue to come off the production line.
UPDATE: Currently May 16th, 2014, all of these cars at the Nissan Sunderland test track have disappeared? Now I don't believe they have all suddenly been sold. I would guess they may have been taken away and recycled to make room for the next vast production run.
Indeed next to that test track and adjacent to the Nissan factory, they are collating again as shown on the Google Maps image below. So where did the last lot go? This is not an employees car park by the way.
None of the images on this webpage are of ordinary car parks at shopping malls, football matches etc. Trust me, they are just mountains and mountains of brand spanking new unsold cars. There is no real reason why you should be driving an old clunker now is there?
The car industry cannot stop making new cars because they would have to close their factories and lay off tens of thousands of employees. This would further add to the recession. Also the domino effect would be catastrophic as steel manufactures would not sell their steel. All the tens of thousands of places where car components are made would also be effected, indeed the world could come to a grinding halt.
Below is shown just a small area of a gigantic car park in Spain where tens of thousands of cars just sit and sunbathe all day.
They are also piling up at the port of Valencia in Spain as seen below. They are either waiting to be exported to...nowhere or have been imported...to go nowhere.
Tens of thousands of cars are still being made every week but hardly any of them are being sold. Nearly every household in developed countries already has a car or even two or three cars parked up on their driveway as it is.
Below is an image of thousands upon thousands of unsold cars parked up on a runway near St Petersburg in Russia. They are all imported from Europe, they are all then parked up and they are all then left to rot. Consequently, the airport is now unusable for its original purpose.
The cycle of buying, using, buying using has been broken, it is now just a case of "using" with no buying. Below is an image of thousands of unsold cars parked up on an disused runway at Upper Heyford, Bicester, Oxfordshire. They are seriously running out of space to store these cars.
It is a sorry state of affairs and there is no answer to it, solutions don't exist. So the cars just keep on being manufactured and keep on adding to the millions of unsold cars already sitting redundant around the world.
Below are parked tens of thousands of cars at Royal Portbury Docks, Avonmouth, near Bristol in the United Kingdom. If you look on Google Maps and scan around the area at say 200ft you will see nothing but parked up unsold cars. They are absolutley everywhere in that area practically every open space has unsold cars parked up on it.
Below is that same area in Avonmouth, UK, but zoomed out. Every gray space that you see is filled with unsold cars. Anyone want to hazard a guess at how many are there...
As it is, there are more cars than there are people on the planet with an estimated 10 billion roadworthy cars in the world today.
We literally cannot make enough of them. Below are seen just a few of the thousands of Citroen's parked up at Corby, Northamptonshire in England. They are being added to daily, imported from France but with nowhere else to go once they arrive.
So there they sit, brand spanking new cars, all with a couple of miles on the clock that was consummate with them being driven to their car parks. Below is the latest May 2014 Google Maps image of unsold cars in Corby, Northamptonshire.
Manufacturing more cars than can be sold is against all logic, logistics and economics but it continues day after day, week after week, month after month, year in year out.
Below is shown a recent (April 2014) screen grab from Google Maps of the Italian port of Civitavecchia. All those little specks are a few thousand brand new unsold Peugeots. Just collecting dust and maybe a bit of salty sea spray!
Below, all nice and shiny but with nowhere to go. Red and white and black and silver, purple, pink and blue, all the colors of the rainbow and be they all brand new. Indeed all the colors of the rainbow are down there on those cars, making pretty mosaics, montages of color and still life. Maybe that is all they will now ever be, surreal urban art of the techno production age. Magnificent metal boxes, wasting space and saving grace, all sitting still, because its business at mill.
All around the world these cars just keep on piling up, there is no end in sight. The economy shouts out quite loud that nobody has the money anymore to spend on a new car. The reason being that they are making their "old" cars go on a lot longer. But we cannot stop making them, soon we will run out of space to park them. We are nearly running out of space to drive them that's for sure!
Below, more cars mount up in the port of Valencia in Spain. They will not be exported as there is nowhere for them to go, so they just sit and rot in their colorful droves.
Gone are the days when the family would have a new car every year, they are now keeping what they have got. It may be fair to say that some families still get a new car every year but its the majority that now do not.
The results are in these images, hundreds of thousands if not millions of cars around the world are driven from their factories, parked up and left.
Could we say that these cars have been left to rot! Maybe, as these cars will certainly rot if they are not bought, driven and cared for. It does not look like they will be sold any day soon, many of them have been standing for over 12 months or even longer and this is detrimental to the car.
Below, as far as the eye can see, right into the background, cars, cars and more cars. But what's beyond the horizon? Have a guess...Yes that's right...even more cars! All brand new but with no homes to go to. Do you think they will ever start giving them away, that may be the only radical solution. Who knows, you could soon be getting a free car with every packet of cornflakes.
When a car is left standing idle, all the oil sinks to the bottom of the sump, and then corrosion begins to set in on all the internal engine parts where the oil has drained away.
Cold corrosion is when condensation builds up in the cylinders and rust forms in the bores. The engines would then start to seize and would need to be professionally freed before they could be started. Also the tires start to lose air and the batteries start to go flat, indeed the detrimental list goes on and on.
So the longer they sit there the worse it slowly becomes for them. What is the answer to this? Well they need to be sold and that just isn't happening.
The epidemic is not imporving, it is getting worse. Car manufactureres are constantly coming out with new models with the latest technology in them. Hence prospective buyers of, for example, a new Citroen Xsara Picasso want the latest model, not last years model. Hence all the unsold Citroen Xsara Picasso cars from the previous year will now have even lesser chance of being sold.
The problems then just keep on mounting up. In the end, the unsold cars that are say 2 years old will have no alternative but to be either crushed up, dismantled and/or their parts recycled.
Some car manufacturers moved their production over to China, General Motors and Cadillac are examples of this. They are then shipped over in containers and unloaded at ports. However they are now being told to put a big halt in their import into the U.S.A. as they just can't sell them in the quantities they would desire. Consequently Chinese car parks are now filling up with brand new American cars. Well nobody in China can afford them on their meagre pittance wages, so there they will stay until our economy improves...which it might do in a few generations.

COPS SHOT IN NO KNOCK RAID
It was bound to happen and it will happen more and more. According to the subject article, more than 40,000 raids are being carried out on American homes every year. Many of these raids are attacking the wrong address. Many more find nothing criminal going on.
Sadly, innocent people are being killed by cops on a daily basis. Like this homeowner, people are having to make a choice ---fight or die. The idea of police living by the motto, to serve and protect, has long since left America.
Long ago the Supreme Court said citizens have the right to resist with deadly force when confronted with situations like no knock raids. I'm sorry a police officer was killed, but it wasn't the homeowner who climbed through a window carrying a gun. Police are going to have to accept the fact that if they attack a home using deadly force, it may be them who wind up dead.
Bruce New World Order News
No Knock Raid Results in Multiple Cops Shot - One Killed
is when officers can serve a warrant on a house without notifying the residents first. At all. Period. Without ringing the doorbell, calling first, a knock, nothing. Police typically do it in the middle of the night or in the wee hours of the morning, too, when people are more likely to be asleep. The majority of these raids aren’t even for violent crimes or imminent threats to life and limb, but drug crimes.
So a lot of people tend to die. It’s a pretty stupid way to enforce laws.
We live in a country where the citizenry are armed. If it’s the middle of the night and you hear someone busting through your front door, and if you exercise your 2nd Amendment rights by owning a firearm, your first reaction is going to be to draw that firearm to protect yourself and your family.
If you do that when a burglar or worse is breaking into your house to possibly cause harm to you and your family and property, then you’ve done the wise thing. That’s called self-defense.
However, if you pull your gun in the same scenario, only replacing the burglar with a SWAT officer, it’s very likely you, and possibly your family and pets, might end up dead. Really dead. Shot 22 times and left to bleed to death dead, like this Marine
planning to execute a search warrant. He retrieved a legally possessed rifle in response to sudden intruders, and the SWAT team opened fire on him before establishing any communication. The team later retracted its initial claims he had opened fire when it was established that Guerena had never fired and his safety was still on. The police refused to allow paramedics to access Guerena for more than hour, leaving Guerena to bleed to death, alone, in his own home. Members of the SWAT team subsequently hired legal defense and a large following of fellow Marines held a memorial service at his home with his widow.
Or you might end up charged with capital crimes because you thought you were defending yourself but you didn’t realize the people breaking into your home were actually police officers.
Here is just another example of exactly why no knock raids are stupid.
Killeen, Texas resident Marvin Louis Guy is currently being held at the Killeen City Jail on a $3 million bond for opening fire on a Killeen Tactical Response Unit and a Central Texas Organized Crime Unit that jointly descended on his home at 5:30 in the morning without knocking first to serve a narcotics search warrant last Friday.
Multiple officers were hit. Detective Charles Dinwiddie later died from his injuries.
Based on this excerpt from the Killeen Police Department’s press release
, the officers weren’t even going in through the front door:
On Friday May 9, 2014, just after 5:30am, members of the Killeen Police Department Tactical Response Unit and the Bell Organized Crime Unit were attempting to serve a narcotics search warrant. The TRU was beginning to breach the window when the 49 year old male inside, opened fire striking four officers.
While police may refer to this as a “dynamic entry,” it really just seems like a dumb idea — especially in Texas — or at the very least, a bad idea for a gang of armed men to break in through someone’s window at the crack of dawn and not expect a response in-kind.
The cop was killed because he was shot in the face. He was shot in the face because he was trying to crawl through these people’s window while they were sleeping like a common criminal would.
And why is all this deemed necessary over some drugs? No one’s life was in immediate danger here. It begs the question why these officers couldn’t have waited for this man to leave his apartment to go to the grocery store to arrest him, because certainly that would have happened at some point. Now one of those officers had to die over it. Was it worth it?
Is it ever worth it?
What happened to cops who protect and serve? These officers aren’t soldiers, but they dress up like them to fight a phony war on drugs which, like the war on terror, will never be won. Prohibition has never historically worked. Besides, if cases can’t be made without paramilitary style no-knock raids conducted on sleeping people in their homes, perhaps the officers don’t have a very good case to begin with.
We live in a country of increasingly militarized police forces. Over 90% of towns with 50,000 people or more have SWAT teams now. Why exactly are our government agencies doling out billions of dollars in military weapons to our local police departments? The American Civil Liberties Union makes a pretty good point: towns don’t need tanks
During the commission of these no knock raids, many innocent people have been gunned down. Children and pets have been shot and killed all across the nation. Elderly people who attempted to protect themselves have been slain in their homes and officers later found out they weren’t even in the right homes to begin with.
When the officers do it, it’s considered their “duty”; they were just doing their jobs when someone’s eight-year-old accidentally gets killed during a raid. On the other hand, when the average citizen fires under what they thought was the guise of self-defense on people they did not know were officers for breaking into their homes unannounced in the middle of the night, well…those people get charged with capital murder.
Although, sometimes the Grand Jury fails to indict. Capital murder charges were recently dropped against 28-year-old Henry Goedrich Magee
after he shot and killed a cop during a no knock raid on his Central Texas home over some marijuana plants he had been accused of growing. The state ultimately couldn’t prove Magee knew it was police and not intruders who were entering his home before he opened fire nor could they disprove that he was acting in self-defense…because he was.
with an extensive catalog of mistaken raids and abuses that, at 103 pages, is long enough to prove that no knock raids are a horrible pratice that needs to stop.
This writer knows that she lives in America, so we at least have the superficial appearance of a Constitution and Bill of Rights that includes a Fourth Amendment which is supposed to protect the nation’s citizens from unreasonable search and seizure. Just having probable cause a crime was committed doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have to at least ring the doorbell first.
The longer these raids continue, the more people are going to needlessly die. What justice are these ill-advised tactics possibly serving?

CAUGHT! FEDERAL RESERVE LAUNDERING MONEY
In the subject article, former assistant Secretary of the Treasury Paul Craig Roberts, exposes a money laundering scheme on the part of the U.S. Federal Reserve. In spite of their public pronouncements claiming a reduction in quantitative easing, the Fed has been caught funneling money to Belgium to finance the purchase of U.S. Treasuries.
It stands to reason if the Fed is doing this in Belgium, they are doing it elsewhere. Many of us are weary. We are weary of an out of control government more interested in starting wars around the world, than protecting America's borders at home. We are weary of continual and constant lying on the part of our government masters. We are weary of unpunished corruption from banks, politicians and large corporations.
Most are now realizing the “Fed” is actually a private corporation whose activities and stock holders are secret. Why do we trust them? Our founders warned us about giving over economic authority to a private central bank. Today, we are beginning to realize they were right.

Fed Laundering Treasury Purchases to Disguise What’s Happening-Paul Craig Roberts
In his latest article, former Assistant Treasury Secretary Dr. Paul Craig Roberts says, “The Fed is the great deceiver.” Why is he making this shocking accusation? The reason is tiny Belgium’s whopping purchase of $141 billion in Treasury bonds earlier this year. Dr. Roberts explains, “We know that Belgium didn’t have any money to buy $141 billion worth of bonds over a three month period. That sum comes to 29% of the Belgium GDP. So, they don’t have a surplus in their budget that is 29% of their GDP, and they don’t have trade or current account surplus in that amount. In fact, everything is in the red. Their budget deficit is in the red, and their trade and current accounts are in the red. So, Belgium didn’t have the money, and yet, they managed to pick up $141.2 billion in U.S. Treasuries over a three month period. So, where did they get the money?” Dr. Roberts, who holds a PhD in economics, goes on to say, “We know their central bank couldn’t have printed euros to buy the bonds with because the Belgium central bank can’t print euros. Belgium is part of the euro system and has lost the ability to create its own money. So, the only source for that kind of money would have been the Federal Reserve. The Federal Reserve thought it needed to hide the fact it was buying $141 billion in bonds over a three month period when it was officially reducing or tapering the quantitative easing down to $65 billion. It didn’t want to have to admit it was really purchasing $112 billion a month, almost double the announced purchases.”
Dr. Roberts also says, “I think also the Fed did not want it to get out that some large country is unloading Treasuries. Somebody dropped over $100 billion in Treasuries in one week. If that was a large holder and that became known, it could panic smaller holders and you could see a stampede, and the Fed could lose control of interest rates. So, I think the Fed thought the best thing to do is launder its purchase through a different country; and, thereby, disguise what is actually happening.”
Why is the Fed worrying about the shell game of Treasury purchases? Dr. Roberts says, “I think there wasn’t any buyer for the $104 billion in one week. So, if that kind of bond sale sat unattended, interest rates would rise; and so, the Fed had to buy the bonds in order to protect its interest rate policy. But, if it outright bought them and this was known, then it starts to interfere with the ‘tapering’ that it promised to do because all of a sudden it’s not ‘tapering,’ at least not for those three months. It signals somebody is unloading Treasuries, and that could stampede others. What it indicates is they are not feeling all that confident that the dollar is on such a sound footing, or the U.S. financial system is on all that much sound footing that they can openly step in and take up that type of purchase.”
On the steep drop in GDP growth of a paltry .1% in the first quarter, Dr. Roberts says, “What I find most amusing about this is they had to claim some real growth in the first quarter; so, they eked out .1%. Now we know they got that by rigging the inflation number they used to deflate the gross domestic product (GDP). The real GDP in the first quarter, properly deflated, was negative and probably also in the fourth quarter. Most likely, this coming quarter, they are not going to be able to hide the fact that it is negative. . . . I am convinced the first quarter was negative, and I don’t see how it could possibly go positive in the second quarter.”
On Fed Head Janet Yellen’s rosy outlook on the economy, Dr. Roberts debates, “I don’t see how she can see that the economy is going to start growing. What is going to make it grow? Why should investors invest money when consumers don’t have any money? There are not retail sales. I think it is just part of the rah, rah talk. Everywhere else in the world is going down the tube. So, what’s going to push the American economy up?–Nothing that I know of.”
On the Ukraine crisis, Dr. Roberts says, “I think Washington badly miscalculated this whole Ukraine business. It was an act of hubris, arrogance and stupidity. They are mad at Russia for blocking their attack on Syria and blocking their attack on Iran. They said ‘we’ll teach them.’ We’ll give them trouble in their own backyard and not to get in our way anymore.” The threat of sanctions has made the Russians realize the dollar system is not in their interest, and they are going to leave it. . . . If any significant part of the world stops using the dollar, the price of the dollar falls because demand for dollars falls, and the import cost for America would rise. When you see how import dependent we are, it would mean a substantial rise in the real cost of living for most Americans.”
Here is my sense; like all empires before it this American one reached its apex after WWII. It’s on a downward trajectory and will eventually fall or be overtaken.
And I believe most Americans will be taken by surprise as in “How could this happen”?
That’s because most Americans are in the words of Paul Craig Roberts “insouciant”, without a care, too passively indifferent, too besotted with technological gadgetry, have feelings of entitlement and believe in American exceptionalism to bother to notice their government has become sinister-which most others in the world recognize, but their governments too intimidated or blackmailed into following us or they will be demonized. Think Iran, Iraq under Saddam-though earlier an ally in his war with Iran in the 80′s-now the newly announced new cold war with Russia and soon to be China.
As for us Americans take an honest look at what passes for our modern American “culture” nowadays-and contributes to maintaining domestic tranquility at all costs. In no particular order:
Consumerism-excessive and beyond all need. And in conjunction with it
Corporatism and commercialization of the public square i.e. the “mallization” of America.
Sports mania, particularly over Pro football and its marketing.
Popular movies featuring gore, crashes, mayhem, aliens, illusion, “virtual” characters replacing real people.
Celebrity gossip as “news”.
Government surveillance by way of technological gadgetry-cell phones, ipods, computers, email, GPS, EZ pass, toll cameras.
MSM becoming complicit in government actions and its propaganda
Incarceration-the highest rates of all 1 st world industrialized democraci
Militarization of local and state police
A trillion dollars in college student debt.
Though certainly not contributing to maintaining domestic tranquility, throw in the bailouts of the big banks too big to fail, income inequality worse than the 1920′s and clearly articulated in the 2011 occupy movement that coined the disparity between the 1% and the 99%, no single payer universal health insurance coverage for all, ignoring global warming and the further despoiling of the environment, the demise of domestic manufacturing, the outsourcing of jobs, home foreclosures and bankruptcy stemming from unscrupulous lenders et al and domestically its an America becoming unrecognizable to these old eyes.
As for the policies and actions of our government that unmistakably reveals its true nature, here again in no particular order are:
The war industry-the trillion dollar military/corporate/political complex and its revolving door of key players that move seamlessly between each to maintain its control. The other key element is the creation of,
“Enemies” contrived such as the “global war on terror”, and the new “cold war” with Russia.
Initiating unnecessary and illegal wars and occupations in Afghanistan and Iraq
These domestic and foreign policies and actions are not those of a government that is representative of the people in a democratic republic. These are policies and actions of a plutocracy of oligarchs and an empire willing to go to any length to maintain its hegemony worldwide and control domestically.
Incredibly, what’s propping up this edifice of domestic indulgence and propaganda and foreign villainy is the FED printing money, selling billions in treasury notes to China, Japan, even Russia underpinned by what else, our previous debt in the trillions and all based on the assumption these countries will continue to buy our debt. But it’s a form of blackmail these other countries have accepted, at least for the present. That can’t last forever.
For sure one can’t predict the actual demise of an empire, even the American one. But hubris, American exceptionalism, the sense of entitlement and the idea of it being the “indispensible nation” surely won’t save it from the trash heap of other empires long gone. Such illusions may contribute, even hasten that inevitable collapse.

Donetsk, Lugansk regions seek to join Russia
In a slow march towards war, parts of Eastern Ukraine have made an unofficial overture to Russia, putting forth the proposition they may want to join Russia.
Of course, if that happened and if Russia agreed, Ukraine would have no choice, but to militarily oppose Russia but maybe there would be another way. I'm just speculating, but Russia, like the old Soviet Union before them, could surreptitiously train and supply rebels from that area of Ukraine. Make them a thorn in the flesh to Ukraine for years to come. Make them spend money they don't have. Make them take casualties. It would set up conflict for years, but eventually, Ukraine and those helping them would disintegrate.
History teaches much. The Vietnam war and many others give some powerful lessons for those who go down a similar path. If 80% of the people oppose you, there is no way you can rule them in the long run.
The pro-Russia leader of the self-proclaimed Republic of Donetsk has asked Moscow to consider absorbing the region into Russia.
Donetsk's leader, Denis Pushilin, told reporters on Monday that Moscow would be asked to consider absorbing the region, which borders Russia, into its fold.
Several other regional pro-Moscow leaders also say they have asked Moscow to consider absorption of the self-proclaimed independent Donetsk Republic.
The developments come after two eastern Ukrainian regions of Lugansk and Donetsk overwhelmingly voted in favor of independence from Kiev.
Sources say the two regions have begun preliminary talks on forging a union. Pushilin added that pro-Russia activists are discussing how to technically implement the idea.
Meanwhile, activists in Lugansk said they are mulling holding a referendum on rejoining Russia.
Russia had earlier said it respects the results of independence referendums in eastern Ukraine.
Donetsk and Lugansk regions, which are home to about 7.3 million of the 46 million population of Ukraine, have seen deadly clashes between Ukrainian forces and pro-Russia protesters in recent weeks.
Kiev launched a military operation in mid-April in a bid to root out pro-Russia demonstrations after protesters occupied government buildings in over a dozen eastern and southern cities.

GAY TYRANNY HITS HGTV
Isn't amazing that just a couple of weeks after the mainstream media went crazy over the intolerance of the owner of the Los Angeles Clippers, it now flips 180 degrees with its' own intolerance.
The subject article and video covers HGTV's decision to cancel one of their new do-it-yourself shows called Flip It Forward after its twin-brother hosts, Jason and David Benham, were outed as Christian conservatives who are against gay marriage and abortion. Yes, God forbid, (whoever your god happens to be) that you hold a religious view totally in line with your faith, but against the religion of our State.
So, it's not O.K. to dislike someone because of the color of their skin, but it's perfectly O.K. to dislike and discriminate against someone because of their faith. In 2014 Amerika, fewer than 10% of the population now controls all speech and actions. Love and adore the gay lifestyle or prepare to suffer the consequences.
NEW: The brothers tell CNN they believe HGTV was bullied into its decision
NEW: "We love all people. I love homosexuals," says David Benham
He was quoted as making remarks against homosexuality
Pair said: "If our faith costs us a television show then so be it"
Tune in to "New Day" during the 6 a.m. hour to hear from David and Jason Benham.
(CNN) -- Twin brothers David and Jason Benham have lost their opportunity to host their own HGTV show.
The brothers ran afoul of the network after the site Right Wing Watch published a post about the pair, labeling David Benham as an "anti-gay, anti-choice extremist" for reportedly leading a prayer rally in 2012 outside of the Democratic National Convention held in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The site posted a recording of Benham talking to a talk show host about "homosexuality and its agenda that is attacking the nation" and "demonic ideologies" taking hold in colleges and public schools.
Benham also discusses the fight for North Carolina's Amendment One, which involved a ban on same-sex marriage and civil unions in the state constitution.
Anti-gay comments cost twins HGTV show
The Benham brothers were the planned stars of the HGTV show "Flip It Forward," set to premiere in October, in which they would have helped families purchase homes they otherwise could not afford.
An April press release described the planned show this way: "After a decade of flipping houses for profit, brothers David Benham and Jason Benham now help families buy the homes they never thought they could afford. In each episode, the guys help a deserving family find a fixer-upper and transform it into their forever home -- with a healthy dose of sibling rivalry between the brothers along the way."
But after the post went public, HGTV tweeted, "HGTV has decided not to move forward with the Benham Brothers' series."
Thursday night, Jason Benham told CNN's "Erin Burnett OutFront" that HGTV had vetted the pair.
"When they -- a year and a half ago -- saw some of the footage where my brother was saying the things he was saying, they spoke with us.
"They got to know us a little better and then they made a judgment call, recognizing that David and I have no hate in our heart for anyone.
"We've been running a successful real estate company for the last 11 years and we help all people. There is no discrimination," said Jason Benham.
His comments were echoed by his brother.
"We love all people. I love homosexuals. I love Islam, Muslims, and my brother and I would never discriminate. Never have we -- never would we," said David Benham.
"Never have I ever spoken against homosexuals, as individuals, and gone against them. I speak about an agenda. And that's really what the point of this is -- is that there is an agenda that is seeking to silence the voices of men and women of faith," he added.
The brothers believe HGTV was bullied into its decision because of the media firestorm.
"It was too much for them to bear and they had to make a business decision," David Benham said.
Earlier, the brothers released a statement:
"The first and last thought on our minds as we begin and end each day is: have we shined Christ's light today? Our faith is the fundamental calling in our lives, and the centerpiece of who we are. As Christians we are called to love our fellow man. Anyone who suggests that we hate homosexuals or people of other faiths is either misinformed or lying.
"Over the last decade, we've sold thousands of homes with the guiding principle of producing value and breathing life into each family that has crossed our path, and we do not, nor will we ever discriminate against people who do not share our views.
"We were saddened to hear HGTV's decision. With all of the grotesque things that can be seen and heard on television today you would think there would be room for two twin brothers who are faithful to our families, committed to biblical principles, and dedicated professionals. If our faith costs us a television show then so be it."
There is also a YouTube video of David Benham speaking at a "celebration" of a closing of an abortion clinic in 2013. Website GlobalFlare.com, which emphasizes "positive news and entertainment," called it a "smear campaign" against the brothers.
The organization Faith Driven Consumer, which started a campaign in support of Phil Robertson of "Duck Dynasty," has launched #FlipThisDecision, a petition aimed at reinstating the HGTV show.

WE ARE RULED BY LIARS
Most agree, but still are willing to applaud when a President or King or Prime Minister rises to make a speech. Even more depressing is the fact that those in the military who already know they work for liars, are perfectly willing to risk their lives in order to fight in a phoney war.
The subject article covers just some of the huge lies which have been exposed in the last 100 years or so. What's the answer? It's the same with any liar with whom you have contact. Give them no money. Spend no time with them. Never praise them. Have nothing to do with them AND do not risk anything to defend them.

OF THE LIARS, BY THE LIARS, AND FOR THE LIARS
By Michael Rivero
The Sinking of the USS Maine
Wreck of the USS Maine
On February 15, 1898, the USS Maine exploded and sank in Havana Harbor. President McKinley told the American people via the Hearst newspapers that the USS Maine had been sunk by a Spanish mine. The American people, outraged by this apparent unprovoked attack, supported the Spanish American War. The Captain of the USS Maine, Charles D. Sigsbee, had insisted the ship was sunk by a coal bin explosion, investigations after the war, in particular an expedition led by Admiral Hyman G. Rickover, the father of America's nuclear Navy, proved that such had indeed been the case.
Admiral Hyman G. Rickover
Rickover built a coffer dam around the wreck of the USS Maine and drained it.
Excavation of the wreck of the USS Maine
Inspections confirmed there had been no mine. Captain Charles D. Sigsbee, excoriated by the Hearst newspapers for not seeing the "obviousness" of a Spanish attack, was proven to have reported accurately on the loss of his ship.
Lysenko and his wheat
In 1928, in the USSR there was a man named Trofim Denisovich Lysenko, a favorite of Stalin, and ultimately, a con-artist. He was as popular then in the USSR as Al Gore is in the US today.
Lysenko's prize theory, which suited Stalin's political needs at the time, was that plants and animals could inherit traits acquired from the environment in a single generation. That is, if you used cooling to trick Winter wheat seeds to germinate and grow in the Spring ( a technique already used in the US at the time) the seeds from the chilled plants would go on germinating in the Spring in perpetuity.
There was very little science in Lysenko's science, but this "revolution" suited Stalin's desire to outdo the accomplishments in genetics which had occurred under Lenin. Honor upon honor was heaped on Lysenko (just as is done with Al Gore today) and real scientists who questioned his theories were shunned, vilified, and removed from their positions (not unlike the experiences of those modern "heretics" who question the basic beliefs of the global warming cult). The state media of the USSR proclaimed the virtues of the Lysenko method beyond all doubt and question, just as the state media of the USA proclaims the "Science is settled" regarding Human-Caused Global Warming. But Lysenko had no more real science training than Al Gore, and his theory that the environment could permanently alter the genetic structure of crops in a single generation was completely wrong.
However, for political reasons, the USSR mandated that all farmers had to use the Lysenko method (just as the present government intends to force us all to use the "Al Gore Cap and Credit" method) and the result was widespread famine when, during the following spring, the second generation wheat refused to germinate.
This illustrates the problems which can result when the government thinks it understands science, or that science can be subordinated to political agenda. You still end up with bullshit.
The sinking of the Lusitania
Sinking of the Lusitania
On May 7th, 1915, a German U-Boat U-20 torpedoed and sank RMS Lusitania, a passenger ship operated by the Cunard line. Like many ships built during that time, Lusitania was heavily subsidized by the British Government and designed to be easily converted into a military auxiliary cruiser in time of war. Although the United States was officially neutral, Germany declared that Lusitania was being used to transport military cargoes to England, which made her a legitimate target of war. Germany even went so far as to take out ads in the American newspapers warning civilians not to take passage on the Lusitania.
The ad placed by Germany warning passengers not to take passage on the Lusitania
The United States and Britain denied that Lusitania carried war materials, and the story of the Germans sinking a helpless passenger ship turned public opinion against Germany and allowed the United States government to convince the American people to enter WW1 against Germany.
War munitions recovered from the wreck of the Lusitania
In 2008, divers finally entered the hold of Lusitania, and proved once and for all that she had been smuggling military munitions to England. Germany had been legally in the right to sink her.
"Six Million Jews"
Changed plaques at Auschwitz
One of the most protected lies in modern times is "Six Million Jews". Indeed so fanatical are its defenders that their very actions make it obvious they are hiding something. The above photograph is a good example. Following Russia's release of captured Nazi documents, the museum at Auschwitz had to revise downward the number of people who died in that slave labor camp of all causes (mostly the typhus epidemics that swept Germany in the closing days of the war) by 2.5 million. But to dare suggest that WW2's "Six Million Jews" be revised downward by the same number will land you in prison in many countries where free thought and the truth are illegal (and indeed if you are reading this article in one of those countries you might want to get out the bottle of white-out and blank your computer screen down to the Reichstag Fire). Likewise, mentioning that the crematorium at Auschwitz was actually built after the war by the Russians to deal with the aforesaid typhus epidemics will cost you your career in Hollywood (trust me on that one).
If you look in the left-most story on the above newspaper from 1933, it reports Germany's entire Jewish population only numbers 600,000. Mentioning that little fact will also bring the wrath of "those who may not be spoke of except in a whisper" down upon your life.
But we will not challenge the sacrosanct story of "Six Million Jews" in WW2 (lest Israel's jackboots kick down our doors and burn us for heresy), nor do we need to! The historical fact is that "Six Million Jews", like Prester John, is a very old propaganda device revived time and time again when needed, without regard to reality. The origin of "Six Million Jews" lies in a Talmudic prophecy that when Six Million Jews are lost, Israel will be restored to the survivors. "Six Million Jews" is thus a religious metaphor for any great calamity, just as "forty days and forty nights" is a metaphor for a really long time and hey we don't have calendars anyway. And as a metaphor, "Six Million Jews", gets recycled a lot! Below are some examples.
Then came the 1930s and "Six Million Jews" was revived once again to build political support to steal part of Palestine and create a Jewish state.
And there is the motive for the Talmudic myth of "Six Million Jews" to be recycled into modern times. The world had just united against Nazi Germany on the principle that one nation does not have the right to march into another nation and steal it for their own. But the founders of Israel proposed to do just that, march into Palestine and take it for their own. They needed a propaganda device so powerful it would trick the world into allowing Israel to do exactly what Nazi Germany had been prevented from doing. And that propaganda remains one of the most fiercely protected secrets of modern times, enforced by laws in many nations.
And that in and of itself betrays the lie, for truth needs no law to support it. Truth is self-evident to all. Truth withstands re-examination. Truth survives questions. Throughout history, from Galileo to Zundel, only lies and liars have resorted to the courts to enforce adherence to dogma.
The Reichstag Fire
The Reichstag Fire
The Reichstag Fire
On February 27th, 1933, the German Reichstag burned down. Declared an act of terror, the false-flag attack led to the passage of the Reichstag Fire Decree and eventually the Enabling acts, NAZI Germany’s version of the USAPATRIOT act. Despite an obvious show trial , debate over just who was really responsible continues to this very day. Marinus van der Lubbe, the only accused found guilty at the trial, was officially pardoned posthumously in 2008 by the German government.
The Gleiwitz Incident
Twin radio towers at the Gleiwitz radio station
On August 31, 1939, Hitler’s agents, led by a fake Pole named Alfred Naujocks, attacked the radio station in Gleiwitz, Germany, which had a pair of the highest towers in the nation.
The Germans, convinced they were being threatened, followed Hitler into Poland and into World War 2.
Remains of the USS Arizona
FDR claimed Pearl Harbor was a surprise attack. It wasn't. The United States saw war with Japan as the means to get into war with Germany, which Americans opposed. So Roosevelt needed Japan to appear to strike first. Following an 8-step plan devised by the Office of Naval Intelligence, Roosevelt intentionally provoked Japan into the attack. Contrary to the official story, the Japanese fleet did not maintain radio silence, but sent messages intercepted and decoded by US intercept stations. Tricked by the lie of a surprise attack, Americans marched off to war.
Honolulu newspaper warning of the attack on Pearl Harbor one week before it occurred. It was no surprise.
Assassination of John F. Kennedy
The moment after the head shot from the Zapruder film
President Kennedy was assassinated on November 22nd, 1963, in Dealey Plaza, Dallas Texas. The American people were told it was a "crazed lone assassin" acting alone. Yet signs of a cover-up were obvious, leading New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison to bring charges against Clay Shaw (later admitted to have been a contract CIA agent) regarding his linkages to Lee Harvey Oswald. In 1976, the United States House of Representatives Select Committee on Assassinations, intended to reassure the American people that the official story was trustworthy, was forced to conclude based on audio recordings of gunshots from multiple locations that there had indeed been multiple shooters in Dealey Plaza, and therefore a conspiracy. Left ignored by the government is why the Warren Commission was created, given that under US law at the time the murder investigation was properly in the jurisdiction of the Dallas Police, or why John J. McCloy, President of the Chase Manhattan Bank and President of the World Bank, was a member of that Commission.
President Johnson lied about the Gulf of Tonkin to send Americans off to fight in Vietnam.
On August 4th, 1964, an inexperienced sonar operator on the USS Maddox, rattled by an encounter with North Vietnamese patrol boats trying to keep US ships out of their territorial waters just two says previously, picked up the sounds of his own ship's screws and mistakenly interpreted them as incoming torpedoes. Although the Captain of the Maddox immediately reported the error up the chain of command, the initial report of an attack garnered headlines which President Johnson used to goad Congress into escalating the Vietnam War.
USS Iowa explosion
USS Iowa fires her guns
Although the Carrier Battle Group has drastically altered the doctrine of fleet operations in the modern age, four WW2 battleships which had been mothballed were given extensive modernization upgrades and returned to active duty during the Reagan years.
One of these ships was the U.S.S. Iowa.
The chief armament of the Battleships are her sixteen inch guns. Little changed from WW2 days, they are loaded by first ramming, with a pneumatic ram, a mission specific projectile into the bore followed by the propellent. The propellent is bundled in silk bags, with the number of bags determining the total charge in the gun (normally 6). The propellent is rammed in behind the projectile and the breach is closed.
Upon command to fire, the center gun on the number one turret fires, and radar tracks the projectile. A correction is computed and the remaining guns adjust themselves and fire.
On April 19th 1989 was 330 miles northeast of Puerto Rico on a training cruise. At 9:55 A.M. during the loading cycle, the center gun in the number 2 turret exploded with an open breach, sending a blast wave into the turret that killed 47 sailors.
The combination of a close friendship with one of the dead sailors, Clay Hartwig, plus some lead foil and a "Gung Ho" magazine led the Navy to accuse 21 year old Seaman Kendall Truitt (who was married) of having been one half of a failed homosexual love affair with Clay Hartwig, with his jilted lover then committing suicide in the number 2 turret.
The ferocity with which the Navy pursued this line of investigation made it apparent that there was another line of inquiry being hidden. Deliberate press leaks by the Iowa's Executive Officer to the Washington Post painted a picture of an unhappy gay sailor blowing himself and 46 of his fellow seamen into eternity. The story was then picked up by The New York Times and the Los Angeles Times. The Newport News Daily Press and Times Herald interviewed Truitt, promising him anonymity, then ran his name as page one news anyway.
Meanwhile, the Navy had discovered that the bags of propellent, dating from the Korean war, had been improperly stored for 5 months in temperatures exceeding 90 degrees, the point at which the propellent becomes unstable.
The Navy's investigation also showed that the freshman sailor operating the rammer had over-rammed the propellent, 5 bags instead of the expected 6, slamming it into the warhead.
In response to accusations that the propellent was unstable, the Navy decided on a demonstration, and built a "drop test" rig. This was a simulated 16 inch gun barrel, with a ram at the base, that was dropped onto a concrete block to simulate over-ramming. The intention was to drop test the configuration again and again until it was evident that the propellent inside was safe from accidental detonation from over-ramming. Exactly the opposite was proven. On being dropped, the device detonated. The Navy then destroyed the remainder of the Iowa's propellent store and established new rules for the storing of propellent.
Despite this and other facts, the Navy's official report, issued on Thursday, September 7, 1989, concluded that the disaster was caused by a "wrongful intentional act ... most probably committed" by Clay Hartwig.
A killer bee
One of the fastest ways to get attention and funding is to announce the imminent doom of the world, then ask for money and/or obedience to study and perhaps "solve" the problem.
Real killer bees
In the 1970s, alarmists warned that a deadly strain of African Killer Bees, accidentally released in Brazil in 1957, were slowly moving towards the United States. The media was filled with lurid stories of vengeance-minded bees slaughtering innocent humans. Movies and TV were filled with killer bee horror films (or comedic skits such as the Killer Bees on Saturday Night Live).
Starting in 2002, the Killer Bees did in fact arrive in the United States. And contrary to the warnings, they do not attack people at random. Like any other bee, they will act to defend their hives when attacked, but since most Americans are smart enough not to do that with ordinary bees, the prophecies of doom and death never materialized.
As a side note, Apiculturists already knew that the Killer Bee alarm was overblown. Worker bees, killer or otherwise, can only sting once, and usually die afterwards. Only the Queen Bees, which never leave the hive after their mating flight, are able to sting multiple times and survive. So bees, killer or otherwise, do not sting unless they are provoked to the point of a Kamikaze suicide attack on the enemy.
The shoot-down of TWA 800
On the evening of July 17th, 1996, shortly after the sun had set, but while the sky was still light, hundreds of witnesses along the southern coast of Long Island New York saw a bright object rise up from the surface of the ocean and destroy TWA Flight 800, a Boeing 747 on its way to Paris. The initial claim by the United States Government was that terrorists had destroyed the aircraft with a Stinger-type man portable anti-aircraft missile, although at the time, TWA 800 was above the range of all known such weapons.
Then the story took a dramatic change when it revealed that the bright object rising up towards the 747 had come from an ongoing US Navy exercise, testing a fleet defence system called Aegis-CEC. The US Navy had activated a military warning zone, which included a ceiling of 10,000 feet, indicating the US Navy expected to deploy something in the sky.
So the story changed, the "terrorists missile" went away, and the new story was that fuel vapors inside the center wing tank of the 747 spontaneously exploded, and what the witnesses who reported seeing a military missile actually saw was the 747 pitching up and climbing into the sky, trailing burning fuel.
There were two problems with the story. The debris field did prove that portions of the wing box, surrounding the center wing tank, had broken away from the 747 first, but without the wing box, the wings would collapse, leaving the 747 unable to fly, let alone climb thousands of feet. This explanation for what the witnesses saw has become known as the "Magic Wingbox Theory." Following the obvious impossibility of the zoom climb theory, the official story changed once again and the US Government explained away the witness sightings by saying they were all drunk (no kidding, that was the final version of the story to explain the witness sightings), even though the missile had been tracked on civilian radar.
The second problem is that 747s use highly refined kerosene as a fuel because it does not explode.
The most likely explanation, and one that was admitted (then retracted) by the US Navy Master Chief on USS Trepang, is that the US Navy was testing an anti-missile system, and the radars locked onto the wrong target, the 747, instead of a test drone in the vicinity.
There was additional evidence, including strange residues on the wreckage which turned out to be consistent with combustion products from a military rocket engine.
As the 20th century wound down, concern was raised over the fact that most calendar functions inside computers were "hardwired" with the leading "19", and that as of midnight, December 31, 1999, computer date functions would leap backwards one hundred years to Jan 1, 1900.
The media was filled with dire forecasts of passenger jets falling out of the skies, banks unable to operate, a stock market crash, power grid collapse, etc. etc. etc. etc.
Now, while it was true that some dedicated clock and calendar chips did in fact have the hardwired "19" problem, the reality is that most calendar functions were already being handled totally in software and for those that were not, a changeover to software calendars able to deal with the year 2000 was a trivial exercise.
But so convincing were the scare mongers that the public started pulling their money out of banks in anticipation of a crash. As a result, corporations had to spend far more money on demonstrations to convince the public that Y2K was fixed than they spent fixing Y2K. In the end, Y2K turned into a 6 billion dollar enterprise that reaped huge profits for the scaremongerers-turned-software patch and "assurance testing" entrepreneurs.
Rulers lie so much and so often, they lie about trivial matters! Bill Clinton public declared he had quit eating junk food. One week later he was caught on Oahu at a local McDonald’s. Nobody really cares about what he was eating. He lied just because that is the habit of rulers to do. If they tell the truth, there is a risk the people may learn to spot the difference between lies and truth.
The Dodgy Dossier
Spoof on the Dodgy Dossier
Then there were the lies used to trick the US into war with Iraq.
First off was Tony Blair's "Dodgy Dossier", a document released by the Prime Minister that made many of the claims used to support the push for war. The dossier soon collapsed when it was revealed that much of it had been plagiarized from a student thesis paper that was 12 years old!
The contents of the dossier, however much they seemed to create a good case for invasion, were obsolete and outdated, having been plagiarized from a 12-year old student thesis paper.
Iraq lies: Mobile Bioweapons Labs
Balloon inflator system, sold to the public as a mobile biological weapons lab
Then there was the claim about the "Mobile biological weapons laboratories". Proffered in the absence of any real laboratories in the wake of the invasion, photos of these trailers were shown on all the US Mainstream Media, with the claim they while seeming to lack anything suggesting biological processing, these were part of a much larger assembly of multiple trailers that churned out biological weapons of mass destruction.
Illustration on how a balloon inflator is supposed to be part of a system to make weapons of mass destruction
This claim fell apart when it was revealed that these trailers were nothing more than hydrogen gas generators used to inflate weather balloons. This fact was already known to both the US and UK, as a British company manufactured the units and sold them to Iraq.
Colin Powell's speech to the UN was itself one misstatement after another. Powell claimed that Iraq had purchased special aluminum tubes whose only possible use was in uranium enrichment centrifuges. Both CIA and Powell's own State Department confirmed that the tubes were parts for missiles Saddam was legally allowed to have. Following the invasion, no centrifuges, aluminum or otherwise were found.
Ariel photos with fictitious labels
Powell also claimed to the United Nations that the photo above showed "Decontamination Vehicles". But when United Nations inspectors visited the site after the invasion, they located the vehicles and discovered they were just fire fighting equipment.
Powell claimed the Iraqis had illegal rockets and launchers hidden in the palm trees of Western Iraq. None were ever found.
Powell claimed that the Iraqis had 8,500 liters (2245 gallons) of Anthrax. None was ever found.
Powell claimed that Iraq was building long-range remote drones specifically designed to carry biological weapons. The only drones found were short-range reconnaissance drones.
Powell claimed that Iraq had an aggregate of between 100 and 500 tons of chemical and biological warfare agents. Powell gave no basis for that claim at all, and a DIA report issued the same time directly contradicted the claim. No biological or chemical weapons were found in Iraq following the invasion.
Powell claimed that "unnamed sources" confirmed that Saddam had authorized his field commanders to use biological weapons. No such weapons were ever used by the Iraqis to defend against the invasion and, of course, none were ever found in Iraq.
Powell claimed that 122mm warheads found by the UN inspectors were chemical weapons. The warheads were empty, and showed no signs of ever having contained chemical weapons.
Powell claimed that Iraq had a secret force of illegal long-range Scud missiles. None were ever found.
Colin Powell's UN debacle also included spy photos taken from high flying aircraft and spacecraft. On the photos were circles and arrows and labels pointing to various fuzzy white blobs and identifying them as laboratories and storage areas for Saddam's massive weapons of mass destruction program. Nothing in the photos actually suggested what the blobby shapes were and during inspections which followed the invasion, all of them turned out to be rather benign.
In at least one case, the satellite Powell claimed had taken one of the pictures had actually been out of operation at the time. And many questioned why Powell was showing black and white photos when the satellites in use at the time over Iraq took color images.
Forged Niger uranium sales document
Another piece of evidence consists of documents which President Bush referenced as in his 2003 State of the Union Speech. According to Bush, these documents proved that Iraq was buying tons of uranium oxide, called "Yellow Cake" from Niger.
Since Israel had bombed Iraq's nuclear power plant years before, it was claimed that the only reason Saddam would have for buying uranium oxide was to build bombs.
This hoax fell apart fast when it was pointed out that Iraq has a great deal of uranium ore inside their own borders and no need to import any from Niger or anywhere else. The I.A.E.A. then blew the cover off the fraud by announcing that the documents Bush had used were not only forgeries, but too obvious to believe that anyone in the Bush administration did not know they were forgeries! The forged documents were reported as being "discovered" in Italy by SISMI, the Italian Security Service. Shortly before the "discovery" the head of SISMI had been paid a visit by Michael Ledeen, Manucher Ghorbanifar, and two officials from OSP, one of whom was Larry Franklin, the Israeli spy operating inside the OSP.
In July, 2005, the Italian Parliament concluded their own investigation and named four men as suspects in the creation of the forged documents. Michael Ledeen, Dewey Clarridge, Ahmed Chalabi and Francis Brookes. This report has been included in Patrick Fitzgerald's investigation into the outing of Valerie Plame, and Paul McNulty, the prosecutor of the AIPAC spy case.
A recently declassified memo proves that the State Department reported the fact that the Niger documents were forgeries to the CIA 11 days before President Bush made the claim about the Niger uranium based on those documents.
In the end, the real proof that we were lied to about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction is that no weapons of mass destruction were ever found. That means that every single piece of paper that purported to prove that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction was by default a fraud, a hoax, and a lie. There could be no evidence that supported the claim that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction because Iraq did not have weapons of mass destruction. In a way, the existence of any faked documents about Iraq's WMDs is actually an admission of guilt. If one is taking the time to create fake documents, the implication is that the faker is already aware that there are no genuine documents.
What the US Government had, ALL that they had, were copied student papers, forged "Yellow Cake" documents, balloon inflators posing as bioweapons labs, and photos with misleading labels on them. And somewhere along the line, someone decided to put those misleading labels on those photos, to pretend that balloon inflators are portable bioweapons labs, and to pass off stolen student papers as contemporary analysis.
The President of the United States and his Neocon associates lied to the people of the United States to send them off on a war of conquest.
Saddam’s Nuclear Weapons did not exist.
Propaganda of Osama Bin Laden's mountain fortress, which did not exist.
Human-caused Global Warming
Photo of temperature measuring station set next to a trash incinerator
Perhaps the biggest and thankfully most obvious pile of bullshit ladled into the public by the rulers is the Human-Caused Global Warming hoax, intended to trick people into obedience to a self-declared global environmental authority, to accept reduced standards of living so that the wealthy may have greater riches, and to pay for a carbon tax, to be used to fund the rise of a global government.
The entire claim of crisis by the "carbonazis" rests on the idea that Earth's climate is stable, never changing, and it is only recently that human activity has begun to drive global temperatures higher, with disastrous consequences if we fail to obey and pay as demanded.
First off, Earth's climate is always changing and always has. In all of Earth's four billion year history, there has never been a time when the climate was not changing. Earth's climate changed long before humans evolved and will go on changing long after humans become extinct. The primary forces controlling Earth's climate are solar output and the slow oscillation in the shape of Earth's orbit, from circular to elliptical and back. When Earth's orbit is elliptical, we get ice ages. When Earth's orbit is circular, we get the inter-glacial, or warm periods.
White House aid Andrew Card informs President Bush of the second airplane crashing into the World Trade Towers. Despite a supposedly unknown number of hijacked planes crashing into buildings, Bush's presence at Booker Elementary School being announced in the media three days previously, and an airport just four miles away, the Secret Service did not remove Bush from the school, proving they knew in advance he would not be a target.
World Trade Center Building 7, although not struck by an airplane, collapsed into its own footprint, exactly like a controlled demolition.
BBC reported on the collapse of World Trade Center Building Seven 26 minutes before it actually happened. In this clip from the live BBC report on the collapse, Building Seven is visible still standing in the background. Someone got off of the 'script'.
Like Global Warming, the lies regarding 9-11warrant and have their own pages. Here are a few.
In hindsight of history, the lies about 9-11m or John Kennedy, of the climate, or the economy, are not unique, nor are they even all that unusual. It is for this government, aided by the corporate media presstitutes, business as usual.
It must be very frustrating for the liars in government right now. Lying to the people has worked for thousands of years.
But not recently. Sometimes the liars are exposed, and face the wrath of their people, angered at the lack of respect being lied to shows.

Illuminated manuscript, produced by hand for the very rich.
In ancient times, the labor intensive book was an item of great value; a status symbol for the rich. Literacy was the province of the rulers. The ruled were not educated to be able to read. Indeed it was actively discouraged.
Gutenberg changed that when he rediscovered movable-type printing (the Chinese had it 400 years earlier). His printing press made books inexpensive and available to the masses, fundamentally altering the basic flow of information between rulers and ruled. Those institutions that could evolve to meet the new reality survived and those that could not, despite a fierce fight of repression on their part, went extinct.
We are repeating that same profound social change today. The Internet has changed the fundamental way in which information flows through society. Those institutions that can evolve to meet the new reality will survive and those that cannot, despite a fierce fight of repression on their part, are doomed to go extinct.
All of history is a war between those who would use imposed ignorance coupled with lies to turn free men into mindless obedient slaves and soldiers.
What do we do about the lies and liars?
These are just a few well-known examples of how rulers have lied to the ruled throughout history. A brief search will reveal many more to those who are interested. But the point here is that We The People are being lied to constantly, unrelentingly, insistantly, to sell us a new product, a new President, a new war.
The founding fathers had a dream of an America where the people and the government worked together towards a common good, in mutual respect.
A government that lies to the people does not respect them, and the America of the 21st Century is not the America dreamed of in 1776.
The Declaration of Independence states government derives its just powers from the consent of the governed. I do not consent to live under a government that lies to me. I will have a truthful government of I will have no government at all.
And you need to decide whether or not you will continue to do so.
The good news is that with technology on our side, slowly, the age of rule by lies is fading into history, and an age of government that must earn, rather than demand, the trust of the people is coming into being. The way you end an age of lies is to simply refuse to believe any longer. Beliefs are chains used to enslave free minds. No chain of steel or iron ever bound a human tighter than the chains built of the beliefs with which we are indoctrinated as children.
It is time to break free of the chains of belief and demand the truth.

RUSSIA SENDING YAK 130 JETS TO SYRIA
While western forces are facing another chaotic defeat in Ukraine, Syrian government forces continue to mop up the foreign invaders in their nation.
Previously, Russia had been dragging their feet in sending 21st century arms to Syria. This was an effort to try to get along with NATO forces. Now that NATO has shown no interest in peaceful solutions, Russia has now resumed arms shipments to Syria. This article covers the YAK 130. This is primarily training aircraft, but can be quickly converted to support ground operations. This is perfect for the ongoing operations in Syria.
Of course there are also the S-300 which Russia has agreed to ship to other nations, including Syria and Iran. The coming world war for which our government masters are salivating, is shaping up to be very frightening.
Russia to send first batch of Yak-130 jets to Syria
File photo shows a Russian-built Yakovlev Yak-130, a combat trainer jet.
Tue May 6, 2014 12:45PM GMT
Russia plans to deliver the first batch of subsonic two-seat advanced Yakovlev Yak-130 jet trainer/light attack aircraft to Syria by the end of this year in a show of support for President Bashar Assad's government.
Citing an unnamed source close to Russian arms exporter Rosoboronexport, Russian daily newspaper Kommersant, wrote on Monday that Damascus will receive nine aircraft until the end of 2014, and in the next two years,12 and 15 respectively.
“We will fulfill obligations under a previously signed contract for the supply of 36 Yak-130 jets,” the source pointed out.
Last June, Kommersant reported that Syria had paid some $100 million as an advance payment to Russia for the first six Yak-130 jets under a $550-million deal signed in December 2011.
All 36 Yak-130 fighter jets were reportedly ready at the time, waiting only for a political decision to install engines and avionics, and then to be sent to Syria.
Russia has repeatedly stated that it only supplied Syria with defensive weapons without violating international law.
The Yak-130 is a twin-engine combat trainer jet that can also be used to attack ground targets. It is able to replicate characteristics of several of 4+ generation fighters.
The military aircraft can also perform light-attack missions and reconnaissance duties, and can carry a combat load of 3,000 kilograms.
Syria has been gripped by deadly violence since 2011. Over 150,000 people have reportedly been killed and millions displaced due to the violence fueled by Western-backed militants.
According to reports, the Western powers and their regional allies -- especially Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Turkey -- are supporting the militants operating inside Syria.

HAS THE STOCK MARKET CRASH BEGUN?
If not today, it won't be long. Over the past months we have published a number of articles and charts showing history is indeed repeating itself. Whether it be 1929, 1987 or 2008, the symptoms are the same. What is also the same is how most ignore history and repeat the same mistakes.
So look at the subject article and charts. The trend is unmistakable. Here we go again except this time will be a lot worse.

STOCK CRASHES IN PROGRESS: The NASDAQ BioTech Index – 15%; Farcebook – 16%; Social Media ETF SOCL – 23%; Twitter – 50%; Amazon – 25%; Q1 GDP Cut To -0.8% At JPMorgan
May 6th, 2014

The Nasdaq Biotech Index had beautifully shot up along an exponential curve. Then the hot air hissed out of it, and it swooned 21% in six weeks. The index includes big players, like Biogen, not just startups with big dreams and no drugs. After some buying on the dip, the index closed on Thursday down “only” 15%. But that hasn’t saved smaller momentum stocks: Exelixis is down 58% from its 52-week high and 92% from its all-time high shortly after its IPO in early 2000; Halozyme is down 60% from its high in early January. And so on.
In the social media space, the bloodletting has been ugly. The Social Media ETF SOCL is down 23%, but stronger stocks like Facebook (down 16% from its high a month ago) paper over individual fiascos, like Twitter, which has plummeted 48% from its peak last year to below its IPO price.
Other momentum stocks are getting annihilated: Amazon down 25% since January, Netflix down 27% in just two months. From their peaks, Pandora crashed 39%, Gogo 63%, and Imperva, a Big Data security outfit, 65%.
Then there’s the “Cloud,” the single most hyped miracle-sector last year. Escalator up, elevator down. Workday, which sells cloud-based corporate software, went public in late 2012 and soared. Two months ago, it sprung a leak and the hot air hissed out of it. It’s down 36%. Veeve, which sells cloud-based healthcare software, has crashed 60% from its November high, shortly after it had gone public. Salesforce is down 22%. ServiceNow lost 30% over the past two weeks. LinkedIn reported a loss after hours on Thursday and got hammered. It’s now down 40% from its peak last September. Jive Software is down 71% from its high in 2012….
Update: JPM just jumped on the bandwagon and cut Q1 GDP to -0.8% from -0.4%. Don’t worry: it snowed.
The US “recovery” is starting to feel more and more recessionary by the day. As we warned after we reported the trade deficit, it was only a matter of time before the Q1 GDP cuts came. And come they did, first from Barclays, and now from Goldman, which just doubled its GDP forecast loss for the past quarter from -0.3% to -0.6%.
What is being used to push up stocks is RECORD HIGH LEVELS OF MARGIN DEBT just like was the case before the crashes of 1929, 1973, 1987, 2000, and 2008, and that has nothing whatsoever to do with QE or the Federal Reserve.
Rates on credit cards have NEVER BEEN HIGHER and now have a national average of 21%. The Federal Reserve has nothing to do with equity “investment” at all and it doesn’t matter a hoot what the only 2 rates set by the Federal Reserve are.

HOW AMERICA COULD LOSE THE NEXT WAR
In 1588, the Spanish Navy ruled the seas. Their Armada had more ships, that were bigger, with more firepower than any other country. They then sent their Armada against the English. With 130 state of the art ships, there was no chance that they would lose this battle, but they did. More than 40 of their ships never returned. More importantly, this defeat led to the downfall of the Spanish empire.
Today, the U.S. is operating with similar hubris. There have been many empires over many centuries. They are all gone. Today, the U.S. is taking its' turn as the latest empire. The subject video covers the newest plane in the U.S. arsenal, the F-35. Military expert Pierre Sprey, the founder and designer of the F-16 & A-10 Warthog airplanes, Explains why the f-35 will not cut it on the modern battlefield. On top of that, hundreds of billions of dollars are being spent to develop this plane. This is money we don't have.
Independent sources have verified that 50 year old fighter jets can shoot the F-35 down. Our enemies have also been busy developing missiles to sink American aircraft carriers. There is no defense for these weapons. So, the next time, some fat general, with tons of ribbons and medals, tells you the U.S. will never be defeated, you may want to refer him to those Spanish Admirals that said the same thing in 1588.
Before you send your son or daughter to fight in another war or before you yourself go to fight another war for “freedom” or before you rise to your feet to applaud anyone who wears a U.S. military uniform or before you sing a patriotic song, you need to read this expose'.
As one studies history it becomes obvious that the common denominator in all large wars is money. No, not for you. It's for the international bankers. Just yesterday, the head of the IMF, (a group of international bankers) said they will give the thugs ruling Ukraine a big pile of money if they'll go out and kill their own citizens. Today, dozens of Ukraine citizens are dead.
"Banking was conceived in iniquity and was born in sin. The Bankers own the Earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create deposits, and with the flick of a pen they will create enough deposits to buy it back again. However, take it away from them, and all the fortunes like mine will disappear, and they ought to disappear, for this world would be a happier and better world to live in. But if you wish to remain slaves of the Bankers and pay for the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create deposits." -- Sir Josiah Stamp, President of the Bank of England in the 1920s, the second richest man in Britain
I know many people have a great deal of difficulty comprehending just how many wars are started for no other purpose than to force private central banks onto nations, so let me share a few examples, so that you understand why the US Government is mired in so many wars against so many foreign nations. There is ample precedent for this.
The United States fought the American Revolution primarily over King George III's Currency act, which forced the colonists to conduct their business only using printed bank notes borrowed from the Bank of England at interest.
"The bank hath benefit of interest on all moneys which it creates out of nothing." -- William Paterson, founder of the Bank of England in 1694
After the revolution, the new United States adopted a radically different economic system in which the government issued its own value-based money, so that private banks like the Bank of England were not siphoning off the wealth of the people through interest-bearing bank notes.
Following the revolution, the US Government actually took steps to keep the bankers out of the new government!
"Any person holding any office or any stock in any institution in the nature of a bank for issuing or discounting bills or notes payable to bearer or order, cannot be a member of the House whilst he holds such office or stock." -- Third Congress of the United States Senate, 23rd of December, 1793, signed by the President, George Washington
But bankers are nothing if not dedicated to their schemes to acquire your wealth, and know full well how easy it is to corrupt a nation's leaders. Just one year after Mayer Amschel Rothschild had uttered his infamous "Let me issue and control a nation's money and I care not who makes the laws", the bankers succeeded in setting up a new Private Central Bank called the First Bank of the United States, largely through the efforts of the Rothschild's chief US supporter, Alexander Hamilton. Founded in 1791, by the end of its twenty year charter the First Bank of the United States had almost ruined the nation's economy, while enriching the bankers. Congress refused to renew the charter and signaled their intention to go back to a state issued value based currency on which the people paid no interest at all to any banker. This resulted in a threat from Nathan Mayer Rothschild against the US Government, "Either the application for renewal of the charter is granted, or the United States will find itself involved in a most disastrous war." Congress still refused to renew the charter for the First Bank of the United States, whereupon Nathan Mayer Rothschild railed, "Teach those impudent Americans a lesson! Bring them back to colonial status!" The British Prime Minister at the time, Spencer Perceval was adamently opposed to war with the United States, primarily because the majority of England's military might was occupied with the ongoing Napoleonic wars. Spencer Perceval was concerned that Britain might not prevail in a new American war, a concern shared by many in the British government. Then, Spencer Perceval was assassinated (the only British Prime Minister to be assassinated in office) and replaced by Robert Banks Jenkinson, the 2nd Earl of Liverpool, who was fully supportive of a war to recapture the colonies.
Once again the nation was plunged into debt, unemployment, and poverty by the predations of the private central bank, and in 1832 Andrew Jackson successfully campaigned for his second term as President under the slogan, "Jackson And No Bank!" True to his word, Jackson succeeds in blocking the renewal of the charter for the Second Bank of the United States.
"Gentlemen! I too have been a close observer of the doings of the Bank of the United States. I have had men watching you for a long time, and am convinced that you have used the funds of the bank to speculate in the breadstuffs of the country. When you won, you divided the profits amongst you, and when you lost, you charged it to the bank. You tell me that if I take the deposits from the bank and annul its charter I shall ruin ten thousand families. That may be true, gentlemen, but that is your sin! Should I let you go on, you will ruin fifty thousand families, and that would be my sin! You are a den of vipers and thieves. I have determined to rout you out, and by the Eternal, (bringing his fist down on the table) I will rout you out!" -- Andrew Jackson, shortly before ending the charter of the Second Bank of the United States. From the original minutes of the Philadelphia committee of citizens sent to meet with President Jackson (February 1834), according to Andrew Jackson and the Bank of the United States (1928) by Stan V. Henkels
Shortly after President Jackson (the only American President to actually pay off the National Debt) ended the Second Bank of the United States, there was an attempted assassination which failed when both pistols used by the assassin, Richard Lawrence, failed to fire. Lawrence later said that with Jackson dead, "Money would be more plenty."
President Zachary Taylor opposed the creation of a new Private Central Bank, owing to the historical abuses of the First and Second Banks of the United States.
"The idea of a national bank is dead, and will not be revived in my time." -- Zachary Taylor
Taylor died on July 9, 1850 after eating a bowl of cherries and milk rumored to have been poisoned. The symptoms h displayed are consistent with acute arsenic poisoning.
President James Buchanan also opposed a private central bank. During the panic of 1857 he attempted to set limits on banks issuing more loans than they had actual funds, and to require all issued bank notes to be backed by Federal Government assets. He was poisoned with arsenic and survived, although 38 other people at the dinner died.
Of course, the public school system is as subservient to the bankers' wishes to keep certain history from you, just as the corporate media is subservient to Monsanto's wishes to keep the dangers of GMOs from you, and the global warming cult's wishes to conceal from you that the Earth has actually been cooling for the last 16 years. Thus is should come as little surprise that much of the real reasons for the events of the Civil War are not well known to the average American.
"The few who understand the system will either be so interested in its profits or be so dependent upon its favours that there will be no opposition from that class, while on the other hand, the great body of people, mentally incapable of comprehending the tremendous advantage that capital derives from the system, will bear its burdens without complaint, and perhaps without even suspecting that the system is inimical to their interests." -- The Rothschild brothers of London writing to associates in New York, 1863
When the Confederacy seceded from the United States, the bankers once again saw the opportunity for a rich harvest of debt, and offered to fund Lincoln's efforts to bring the south back into the union, but at 30% interest. Lincoln remarked that he would not free the black man by enslaving the white man to the bankers and using his authority as President, issued a new government currency, the greenback. This was a direct threat to the wealth and power of the central bankers, who quickly responded.
"Dear Sir: It is advisable to do all in your power to sustain such prominent daily and weekly newspapers... as will oppose the issuing of greenback paper money, and that you also withhold patronage or favors from all applicants who are not willing to oppose the Government issue of money. Let the Government issue the coin and the banks issue the paper money of the country... [T]o restore to circulation the Government issue of money, will be to provide the people with money, and will therefore seriously affect your individual profit as bankers and lenders." -- Triumphant plutocracy; the story of American public life from 1870 to 1920, by Lynn Wheeler
"It will not do to allow the greenback, as it is called, to circulate as money any length of time, as we cannot control that." -- Triumphant plutocracy; the story of American public life from 1870 to 1920, by Lynn Wheeler
"Slavery is likely to be abolished by the war power, and chattel slavery destroyed. This, I and my European friends are in favor of, for slavery is but the owning of labor and carries with it the care for the laborer, while the European plan, led on by England, is for capital to control labor by controlling the wages. THIS CAN BE DONE BY CONTROLLING THE MONEY." -- Triumphant plutocracy; the story of American public life from 1870 to 1920, by Lynn Wheeler
Goaded by the private bankers, much of Europe supported the Confederacy against the Union, with the expectation that victory over Lincoln would mean the end of the Greenback. France and Britain considered an outright attack on the United States to aid the confederacy, but were held at bay by Russia, which had just ended the serfdom system and had a state central bank similar to the system the United States had been founded on. Left free of European intervention, the Union won the war, and Lincoln announced his intention to go on issuing greenbacks. Following Lincoln's assassination, the Greenbacks were pulled from circulation and the American people forced to go back to an economy based on bank notes borrowed at interest from the private bankers. Tsar Alexander II, who authorized Russian militarey assistance to Lincoln, was subsequently the victim of multiple attempts on his life in 1866, 1879, and 1880, until his assassination in 1881.
James A. Garfield was elected President in 1880 on a platform of government control of the money supply.
"The chief duty of the National Government in connection with the currency of the country is to coin money and declare its value. Grave doubts have been entertained whether Congress is authorized by the Constitution to make any form of paper money legal tender. The present issue of United States notes has been sustained by the necessities of war; but such paper should depend for its value and currency upon its convenience in use and its prompt redemption in coin at the will of the holder, and not upon its compulsory circulation. These notes are not money, but promises to pay money. If the holders demand it, the promise should be kept. -- James Garfield
"By the experience of commercial nations in all ages it has been found that gold and silver afford the only safe foundation for a monetary system. Confusion has recently been created by variations in the relative value of the two metals, but I confidently believe that arrangements can be made between the leading commercial nations which will secure the general use of both metals. Congress should provide that the compulsory coinage of silver now required by law may not disturb our monetary system by driving either metal out of circulation. If possible, such an adjustment should be made that the purchasing power of every coined dollar will be exactly equal to its debt-paying power in all the markets of the world. --James Garfield
"He who controls the money supply of a nation controls the nation. -- James Garfield
Garfield was shot on July 2, 1881 and died of his wounds several weeks later. Chester A. Arthur succeeded Garfield as President.
In 1896, William McKinley was elected President in the middle of a depression-driven debate over gold-backed government currency versus bank notes borrowed at interest from private banks. McKinley favored gold-backed currencies and a balanced government budget which would free the public from accumulating debt.
"Our financial system needs some revision; our money is all good now, but its value must not further be threatened. It should all be put upon an enduring basis, not subject to easy attack, nor its stability to doubt or dispute. Our currency should continue under the supervision of the Government. The several forms of our paper money offer, in my judgment, a constant embarrassment to the Government and a safe balance in the Treasury." -- William McKinley
McKinley was shot by an out-of-work anarchist on September 14, 1901, in Buffalo, NY, succumbing to his wounds a few days later. He was suceeded in office by Theodore Roosevelt.
"When you or I write a check, there must be sufficient funds in our account to cover the check; but when the Federal Reserve writes a check, there is no bank deposit on which that check is drawn. When the Federal Reserve writes a check, it is creating money." -- From the Boston Federal Reserve Bank pamphlet, "Putting it Simply."
"Neither paper currency nor deposits have value as commodities. Intrinsically, a 'dollar' bill is just a piece of paper. Deposits are merely book entries." -- "Modern Money Mechanics Workbook" � Federal Reserve of Chicago, 1975
"I am afraid the ordinary citizen will not like to be told that the banks can and do create money. And they who control the credit of the nation direct the policy of Governments and hold in the hollow of their hand the destiny of the people." -- Reginald McKenna, as Chairman of the Midland Bank, addressing stockholders in 1924
"States, most especially the large hegemonic ones, such as the United States and Great Britain, are controlled by the international central banking system, working through secret agreements at the Bank for International Settlements (BIS), and operating through national central banks (such as the Bank of England and the Federal Reserve)... The same international banking cartel that controls the United States today previously controlled Great Britain and held it up as the international hegemon. When the British order faded, and was replaced by the United States, the US ran the global economy. However, the same interests are served. States will be used and discarded at will by the international banking cartel; they are simply tools." -- Andrew Gavin Marshall
Later that same year, and apparently unwilling to risk another questionable amendment, Congress passed the Federal Reserve Act over Christmas holiday 1913, while members of Congress opposed to the measure were at home. This was a very underhanded deal, as the Constitution explicitly vests Congress with the authority to issue the public currency, does not authorize its delegation, and thus should have required a new Amendment to transfer that authority to a private bank. But pass it Congress did, and President Woodrow Wilson signed it as he promised the bankers he would in exchange for generous campaign contributions. Wilson later regretted that decision.
The next year, World War One started, and it is important to remember that prior to the creation of the Federal Reserve, there was no such thing as a world war.
World War One started between Austria-Hungary and Serbia, but quickly shifted to focus on Germany, whose industrial capacity was seen as an economic threat to Great Britain, who saw the decline of the British Pound as a result of too much emphasis on financial activity to the neglect of agriculture, industrial development, and infrastructure (not unlike the present day United States). Although pre-war Germany had a private central bank, it was heavily restricted and inflation kept to reasonable levels. Under government control, investment was guaranteed to internal economic development, and Germany was seen as a major power. So, in the media of the day, Germany was portrayed as the prime opponent of World War One, and not just defeated, but its industrial base flattened. Following the Treaty of Versailles, Germany was ordered to pay the war costs of all the participating nations, even though Germany had not actually started the war. This amounted to three times the value of all of Germany itself. Germany's private central bank, to whom Germany had gone deeply into debt to pay the costs of the war, broke free of government control, and massive inflation followed (mostly triggered by currency speculators) , permanently trapping the German people in endless debt.
When the Weimar Republic collapsed economically, it opened the door for the National Socialists to take power. Their first financial move was to issue their own state currency which was not borrowed from private central bankers. Freed from having to pay interest on the money in circulation, Germany blossomed and quickly began to rebuild its industry. The media called it "The German Miracle". TIME magazine lionized Hitler for the amazing improvement in life for the German people and the explosion of German industry, and even named him TIME Magazine's Man Of The Year in 1938.
Once again, Germany's industrial output became a threat to Great Britain.
"Should Germany merchandise (do business) again in the next 50 years we have led this war (WW1) in vain." - Winston Churchill in The Times (1919)
"We will force this war upon Hitler, if he wants it or not." - Winston Churchill (1936 broadcast)
"Germany becomes too powerful. We have to crush it." - Winston Churchill (November 1936 speaking to US - General Robert E. Wood)
"This war is an English war and its goal is the destruction of Germany." - Winston Churchill (- Autumn 1939 broadcast)
Germany's state-issued value based currency was also a direct threat to the wealth and power of the private central banks, and as early as 1933 they started to organize a global boycott against Germany to strangle this upstart ruler who thought he could break free of private central bankers!
As had been the case in World War One, Great Britain and other nations threatened by Germany's economic power looked for an excuse to go to war, and as public anger in Germany grew over the boycott, Hitler foolishly gave them that excuse. Years later, in a spirit of candor, the real reasons for that war were made clear.
"The war wasn't only about abolishing fascism, but to conquer sales markets. We could have, if we had intended so, prevented this war from breaking out without doing one shot, but we didn't want to."- Winston Churchill to Truman (Fultun, USA March 1946)
"Germany's unforgivable crime before WW2 was its attempt to loosen its economy out of the world trade system and to build up an independent exchange system from which the world-finance couldn't profit anymore. ...We butchered the wrong pig." -Winston Churchill (The Second World War - Bern, 1960)
As a side note, we need to step back before WW2 and recall Marine Major General Smedley Butler. In 1933, Wall Street bankers and financiers had bankrolled the successful coups by both Hitler and Mussolini. Brown Brothers Harriman in New York was financing Hitler right up to the day war was declared with Germany. And they decided that a fascist dictatorship in the United States based on the one on Italy would be far better for their business interests than Roosevelt's "New Deal" which threatened massive wealth re-distribution to recapitalize the working and middle class of America. So the Wall Street tycoons recruited General Butler to lead the overthrow of the US Government and install a "Secretary of General Affairs" who would be answerable to Wall Street and not the people, would crush social unrest and shut down all labor unions. General Butler pretended to go along with the scheme but then exposed the plot to Congress. Congress, then as now in the pocket of the Wall Street bankers, refused to act. When Roosevelt learned of the planned coup he demanded the arrest of the plotters, but the plotters simply reminded Roosevelt that if any one of them were sent to prison, their friends on Wall Street would deliberatly collapse the still-fragile economy and blame Roosevelt for it. Roosevelt was thus unable to act until the start of WW2, at which time he prosecuted many of the plotters under the Trading With The Enemy act. The Congressional minutes into the coup were finally released in 1967 and became the inspiration for the movie, "Seven Days in May" but with the true financial villains erased from the script.
"I spent 33 years and four months in active military service as a member of our country's most agile military force -- the Marine Corps. I served in all commissioned ranks from second lieutenant to Major General. And during that period I spent more of my time being a high--class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and for the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. "I suspected I was just a part of a racket at the time. Now I am sure of it. Like all members of the military profession I never had an original thought until I left the service. My mental faculties remained in suspended animation while I obeyed the orders of the higher-ups. This is typical with everyone in the military service. Thus I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. The record of racketeering is long. I helped purify Nicaragua for the international banking house of Brown Brothers in 1909-12. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for American sugar interests in 1916. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that the Standard Oil went its way unmolested. During those years, I had, as the boys in the back room would say, a swell racket. I was rewarded with honors, medals and promotion. Looking back on it, I feel I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three city districts. I operated on three continents." -- General Smedley Butler, former US Marine Corps Commandant,1935
As President, John F. Kennedy understood the predatory nature of private central banking. He understood why Andrew Jackson fought so hard to end the Second Bank of the United States. So Kennedy wrote and signed Executive Order 11110 which ordered the US Treasury to issue a new public currency, the United States Note.
Kennedy's United States Notes were not borrowed form the Federal Reserve but created by the US Government and backed by the silver stockpiles held by the US Government. It represented a return to the system of economics the United States had been founded on, and was perfectly legal for Kennedy to do. All told, some four and one half billion dollars went into public circulation, eroding interest payments to the Federal Reserve and loosening their control over the nation. Five months later John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas Texas, and the United States Notes pulled from circulation and destroyed (except for samples held by collectors). John J. McCloy, President of the Chase Manhattan Bank, and President of the World Bank, was named to the Warren Commission, presumably to make certain the banking dimensions behind the assassination were concealed from the public.
As we enter the eleventh year of what future history will most certainly describe as World War Three, we need to examine the financial dimensions behind the wars.
Towards the end of World War Two, when it became obvious that the allies were going to win and dictate the post war environment, the major world economic powers met at Bretton Woods, a luxury resort in New Hampshire in July of 1944, and hammered out the Bretton Woods agreement for international finance. The British Pound lost its position as the global trade and reserve currency to the US dollar (part of the price demanded by Roosevelt in exchange for the US entry into the war). Absent the economic advantages of being the world's "go-to" currency, Britain was forced to nationalize the Bank of England in 1946. The Bretton Woods agreement, ratified in 1945, in addition to making the dollar the global reserve and trade currency, obligated the signatory nations to tie their currencies to the dollar. The nations that ratified Bretton Woods did so on two conditions. The first was that the Federal Reserve would refrain from over-printing the dollar as a means to loot real products and produce from other nations in exchange for ink and paper; basically an imperial tax. That assurance was backed up by the second requirement, which was that the US dollar would always be convertible to gold at $35 per ounce.
Of course, the Federal Reserve, being a private bank and not answerable to the US Government, did start overprinting paper dollars, and much of the perceived prosperity of the 1950s and 1960s was the result of foreign nations' obligations to accept the paper notes as being worth gold at the rate of $35 an ounce. Then in 1970, France looked at the huge pile of paper notes sitting in their vaults, for which real French products like wine and cheese had been traded, and notified the United States government that they would exercise their option under Bretton Woods to return the paper notes for gold at the $35 per ounce exchange rate. Of course, the United States had nowhere near the gold to redeem the paper notes, so on August 15th, 1971, Richard Nixon "temporarily" suspended the gold convertibility of the US Federal Reserve Notes. This "Nixon shock" effectively ended Bretton Woods and many global currencies started to delink from the US dollar. Worse, since the United States had collateralized their loans with the nation's gold reserves, it quickly became apparent that the US Government did not in fact have enough gold to cover the outstanding debts. Foreign nations began to get very nervous about their loans to the US and understandably were reluctant to loan any additional money to the United States without some form of collateral. So Richard Nixon started the environmental movement, with the EPA and its various programs such as "wilderness zones", Roadless areas", Heritage rivers", "Wetlands", all of which took vast areas of public lands and made them off limits to the American people who were technically the owners of those lands. But Nixon had little concern for the environment and the real purpose of this land grab under the guise of the environment was to pledge those pristine lands and their vast mineral resources as collateral on the national debt. The plethora of different programs was simply to conceal the true scale of how much American land was being pledged to foreign lenders as collateral on the government's debts; eventually almost 25% of the nation itself.
With open lands for collateral already in short supply, the US Government embarked on a new program to shore up sagging international demand for the dollar. The United States approached the world's oil producing nations, mostly in the Middle East, and offered them a deal. In exchange for only selling their oil for dollars, the United States would guarantee the military safety of those oil-rich nations. The oil rich nations would agree to spend and invest their US paper dollars inside the United States, in particular in US Treasury Bonds, redeemable through future generations of US taxpayers. The concept was labeled the "petrodollar". In effect, the US, no longer able to back the dollar with gold, was now backing it with oil. Other peoples' oil. And that necessity to keep control over those oil nations to prop up the dollar has shaped America's foreign policy in the region ever since.
But as America's manufacturing and agriculture has declined, the oil producing nations faced a dilemma. Those piles of US Federal Reserve notes were not able to purchase much from the United States because the United States had little (other than real estate) anyone wanted to buy. Europe's cars and aircraft were superior and less costly, while experiments with GMO food crops led to nations refusing to buy US food exports. Israel's constant belligerence against its neighbors caused them to wonder if the US could actually keep their end of the petrodollar arrangement. Oil producing nations started to talk of selling their oil for whatever currency the purchasers chose to use. Iraq, already hostile to the United States following Desert Storm, demanded the right to sell their oil for Euros in 2000 and in 2002, the United Nations agreed to allow it under the "Oil for food" program instituted following Desert Storm. One year later the United States re-invaded Iraq, lynched Saddam Hussein, and placed Iraq's oil back on the world market only for US dollars.
The clear US policy shift following 9-11, away from being an impartial broker of peace in the Mideast to one of unquestioned support for Israel's aggressions only further eroded confidence in the Petrodollar deal and even more oil producing nations started openly talking of oil trade for other global currencies.
Over in Libya, Muammar Gaddafi had instituted a state-owned central bank and a value based trade currency, the Gold Dinar. Gaddafi announced that Libya's oil was for sale, but only for the Gold Dinar. Other African nations, seeing the rise of the Gold Dinar and the Euro, even as the US dollar continued its inflation-driven decline, flocked to the new Libyan currency for trade. This move had the potential to seriously undermine the global hegemony of the dollar. French President Nicolas Sarkozy reportedly went so far as to call Libya a “threat” to the financial security of the world. So, the United States invaded Libya, brutally murdered Qaddafi ( the object lesson of Saddam's lynching not being enough of a message, apparently), imposed a private central bank, and returned Libya's oil output to dollars only. The gold that was to have been made into the Gold Dinars is, as of last report, unaccounted for.
According to General Wesley Clark, the master plan for the "dollarification" of the world's oil nations included seven targets, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, and Iran (Venezuela, which dared to sell their oil to China for the Yuan, is a late addition). What is notable about the original seven nations originally targeted by the US is that none of them are members of the Bank for International Settlements, the private central bankers private central bank, located in Switzerland. This meant that these nations were deciding for themselves how to run their nations' economies, rather than submit to the international private banks.
Now the bankers' gun sights are on Iran, which dares to have a government central bank and sell their oil for whatever currency they choose. The war agenda is, as always, to force Iran's oil to be sold only for dollars and to force them to accept a privately owned central bank. Malaysia, one of the new nations without a Rothschild central bank, is now being invaded by a force claimed to be "Al Qaeda", and with the death of President Hugo Chavez, plans to impose a US and banker friendly regime on Venezuela are clearly being implemented.
The German government recently asked for the return of some of their gold bullion from the Bank of France and the New York Federal Reserve. France has said it will take 5 years to return Germany's gold. The United States has said they will need 8 years to return Germany's gold. This suggests strongly that the Bank of France and the NY Federal Reserve have used the deposited gold for other purposes, most likely to cover gold futures contracts used to artificially suppress the price of gold to keep investors in the equities markets, and the Central Banks are scrambling to find new gold to cover the shortfall and prevent a gold run. So it is inevitable that suddenly France invades Mali, ostensibly to combat Al Qaeda, with the US joining in. Mali just happens to be one of the world's largest gold producers with gold accounting for 80% of Mali exports. War for the bankers does not get more obvious than that!
Mexico has demanded a physical audit of their gold bullion stored at the Bank of England, and along with Venezuela's vast oil reserves (larger than Saudi Arabia), Venezuela's gold mines are a prize lusted after by all the Central Banks that played fast and loose with other peoples' gold bullion. So we can expect regime change if not outright invasion soon.
You have been raised by a public school system and media that constantly assures you that the reasons for all these wars and assassinations are many and varied. The US claims to bring democracy to the conquered lands (they haven't; the usual result of a US overthrow is the imposition of a dictatorship, such as the 1953 CIA overthrow of Iran's democratically elected government of Mohammad Mosaddegh and the imposition of the Shah, or the 1973 CIA overthrow of Chile's democratically elected government of President Salvador Allende, and the imposition of Augusto Pinochet), or to save a people from a cruel oppressor, revenge for 9-11, or that tired worn-out catch all excuse for invasion, weapons of mass destruction. Assassinations are always passed off as "crazed lone nuts" to obscure the real agenda.
The real agenda is simple. It is enslavement of the people by creation of a false sense of obligation. That obligation is false because the Private Central Banking system, by design, always creates more debt than money with which to pay that debt. Private Central Banking is not science, it is a religion; a set of arbitrary rules created to benefit the priesthood, meaning the owners of the Private Central Bank. The fraud persists, with often lethal results, because the people are tricked into believing that this is the way life is suppoed to be and no alternative exists or should be dreamt of. The same was true of two earlier systems of enslavement, Rule by Divine Right and Slavery, both systems built to trick people into obedience, and both now recognized by modern civilizatyion as illegitimate. Now we are entering a time in human history where we will recognize that rule by debt, or rule by Private Central Bankers issuing the public currency as a loan at interest, is equally illegitimate. It only works as long as people allow themselves to believe that this is the way life is supposed to be.
But understand this above all; Private Central Banks do not exist to serve the people, the community, or the nation. Private Central Banks exist to serve their owners, to make them rich beyond the dreams of Midas and all for the cost of ink, paper, and the right bribe to the right official.
Behind all these wars, all these assassinations, the hundred million horrible deaths from all the wars lies a single policy of dictatorship. The private central bankers allow rulers to rule only on the condition that the people of a nation be enslaved to the private central banks. Failing that, said ruler will be killed, and their nation invaded by those other nations enslaved to private central banks.
The so-called "clash of civilizations" we read about on the corporate media is really a war between banking systems, with the private central bankers forcing themselves onto the rest of the world, no matter how many millions must die for it. Indeed the constant hatemongering against Muslims lies in a simple fact. Like the ancient Christians (prior to the Knights Templars private banking system) , Muslims forbid usury, or the lending of money at interest. And that is the reason our government and media insist they must be killed or converted. They refuse to submit to currencies issued at interest. They refuse to be debt slaves.
So off to war your children must go, to spill their blood for the money-junkies' gold. We barely survived the last two world wars. In the nuclear/bioweapon age, are the private central bankers willing to risk incinerating the whole planet just to feed their greed?
This brings us to the current situation in the Ukraine.
The European Union had been courting the government of the Ukraine to merge with the EU, and more to the point, entangle their economy with the private-owned European Central Bank. The government of the Ukraine was considering the move, but had made no commitments. Part of their concern lay with the conditions in other EU nations enslaved to the ECB, notably Cyprus, Greece, Spain, and Italy. So they were properly cautious. Then Russia stepped in with a better deal and the Ukraine, exercising the basic choice all consumers have to choose the best product at the best price, dropped the EU and announced they were going to go with Russia's offer. It was at that point that agents provocateurs flooded into the Ukraine, covertly funded by intelligence agency fronts like CANVAS and USAID, stirring up trouble, while the western media proclaimed this was a popular revolution. Snipers shot at people and this violence was blamed on then-President Yanukovich. However a leaked recording of a phone call between the EU's Catherine Ashton and Estonia's Foreign Minister Urmas Paet confirmed the snipers were working for the overthrow plotters, not the Ukrainian government. Urmas Paet has confirmed the authenticity of that phone call.
This is a classic pattern of covert overthrow we have seen many times before. Since the end of WW2, the US has covertly tried to overthrow the governments of 56 nations, succeeding 25 times. Examples include the 1953 overthrow of Iran's elected government of Mohammed Mossadegh and the imposition of the Shah, the 1973 overthrow of Chile's elected government of Salvador Allende and the imposition of the Pinochet dictatorship, and of course, the current overthrow of Ukraine's elected government of Yanukovich and the imposition of the current unelected government, which is already gutting the Ukraine's wealth to hand to the western bankers.
Flag waving and propaganda aside, all modern wars are wars by and for the private bankers, fought and bled for by third parties unaware of the true reason they are expected to gracefully be killed and croppled for. The process is quite simple. As soon as the Private Central Bank issues its currency as a loan at interest, the public is forced deeper and deeper into debt. When the people are reluctant to borrow any more, that is when the Keynesian economists demand the government borrow more to keep the pyramid scheme working. When both the people and government refuse to borrow any more, that is when wars are started, to plunge everyone even deeper into debt to pay for the war, then after the war to borrow more to rebuild. When the war is over, the people have about the same as they did before the war, except the graveyards are far larger and everyone is in debt to the private bankers for the next century. This is why Brown Brothers Harriman in New York was funding the rise of Adolf Hitler.
As long as Private Central Banks are allowed to exist, inevitably as the night follows day there will be poverty, hopelessness, and millions of deaths in endless World Wars, until the Earth itself is sacrificed in flames to Mammon.
The path to true peace on Earth lies in the abolishment of all private central banking everywhere, and a return to the state-issued value-based currencies that allow nations and people to become prosperous.

GERALD CELENTE: NO END IN SIGHT TO UKRAINE CRISIS
In a recent interview with Russia Today, Gerald Celente, gives his view on the crisis in Ukraine. As if this weren't already obvious, he points out that, if our government masters have their way, this crisis will go on forever.
After all, the U.S. still has troops in Korea, Japan and Germany. This after more than 60 years since those wars ended. The wars in Afghanistan and Iraq still go on even though those wars are now between 12 and 13 years old.
So what's going on? It's all about the money. War is big business. Imagine blowing things up and then being paid to rebuild them. On top of that bullets, bombs and missiles cost money – a lot of money. So we, the taxpayers, supply the money and blood, and our government rulers rake it in. Of course, they want it to go on forever.
Once upon a time there were 19 bad men. Some were from Saudi Arabia, some were from the United Arab Emirates, one was from Egypt and one was from Lebanon. One day as they were wandering around Afghanistan, they went into a cave where the mean Osama was living. They all decided it would be fun if they would go to the U.S., learn how to fly Boeing 757′s, go to airports, get on 4 different planes, take them over and fly them into buildings, setting the buildings on fire, thus causing them to collapse. The wise and evil Osama agreed.
But there were problems. One said “how can we get into the U.S. since most of us are on terrorist watch lists”? The wise and evil Osama said, we will pray that Allah will cause those in charge in the U.S. to intervene and allow you into the U.S. Another said, “Since none of us know how to fly, how will we fly the 4, Boeing 757′s”? The wise and evil Osama said “you will go to the Pensacola Naval Air base and they will teach you how to fly a single engine plane”. “How will we take over the planes’? ” You will each carry a box cutter. Once you show the box cutter, then the several hundred passengers will cower in terror as you take over the planes”.
After they did as they were told and all of the pieces fell into place, they did, indeed take over 4, Boeing 757′s, only carrying box cutters. And after only becoming mildly proficient in flying small engine planes and not being able to perform any complex maneuvers, the pilots miraculously performed aerobatic maneuvers that not even the most experienced jet pilots are able to perform. After they had taken over these 4 planes, they were all allowed to fly these planes around Washington, D.C. and the entire east coast without any challenge from the U.S. military. The wise and evil Osama arranged for NORAD to run a drill at the exact same time, with the exact same scenario, calling for a complete stand down of the U.S. air defense.
Once they crashed their planes into buildings, more miracles happened. The jet fuel from 2 of the planes, normally burning at a maximum at 1800 degrees, magically heated up to almost 3000 degrees and melted not only the 47 steel columns in the core of the buildings, but all of the exterior steel as well. This was being done while people, braving the 3000 degree temperatures, still healthy and alive in the buildings, were begging for help at the blown out windows. Not even their clothes were burned. Then, as if by magic, first one, then the other skyscraper, fell down in 12 seconds.
Meanwhile, the wise and evil Osama had still more miracles planned. The third plane performed an impossible maneuver and crashed only a few feet above the ground into the Pentagon building. Even though the plane was 125 feet wide, it managed to slam into a wall of the building and leave only a 16 foot hole. Then the evil and wise Osama made that plane disappear without a trace of debris. He even managed to preserve a book and a wooden table without any burns right next to the exploding jet fuel. He then arranged for more than 40 cameras that recorded the crash to either malfunction or be taken by the authorities.
But the wise and evil Osama wasn’t through. The fourth plane was still flying around un opposed when brave passengers took over the plane. No, Osama didn’t explain why the brave passengers didn’t resist the evil man with the box cutter in the first place, but no matter. The wise and evil Osama then arranged for cell phone calls to be made from this jet liner flying at 500mph and cruising at 30,000 feet. This was indeed another miracle since this was never done before, nor since. Those brave passengers then decided not to try to fly the plane, they decided to crash it into a field. But the wise and evil Osama performed still another miracle. Even though the 4th plane crashed into a field, the plane’s debris was spread over 5 miles — almost as if the debris came from the sky above and not the ground below.
Oh, but the wise and evil Osama had one more trick up his sleeve. Back in the city, where 2 steel skyscrapers had collapsed in their own footprint due to fire, a third skyscraper in the area also had a moderate fire going in a couple of its’ floors. This time the evil and wise Osama would announce his next evil miracle. He caused both the BBC and CNN to announced that this 3rd building had collapsed due to fire, even though it would not collapse for another 23 minutes. Then it did collapse, but to show the evil Osama was not totally evil, he arranged for this building with fires almost totally out, to collapse in its’ own footprint, so not to damage the surrounding area.
There is a happy ending. All of the King’s soldiers and all of the King’s police and all of the King’s airport security officers and all of the King’s swat teams and all of the King’s stooges and all of the King’s dupes, lived happily ever after.
POSTED JULY 2, 2012
I have attempted over the past several months not to write this article. It's never easy to disappoint. It's never easy to admit defeat. It's never easy to invite criticism. In spite of all that, I am choosing to proceed.
Over the past several years I have posted news on a daily basis. Recently, I have expanded those posts to a new group, Planet Infowars. Both of these venues are very much preaching to the choir, with the hope that some will "wake up" and thus wake up others. I assume those who read these posts and participate in similar actions have the same goal. I have come to the conviction that this is not going to happen -- at least not enough, soon enough. I know this because I know what it takes to turn a nation from bad to good.
During the 1960's a generation set out to end an unjust war based on lies, end 400 years of racial discrimination and remove a corrupt President from office. All three were accomplished, mostly,if not completely. I know this because I was there. I joined thousands of military personnel in opposing the war in Vietnam. I had my life threatened and eventually spent time in Canada with 50,000 other American refugees. I participated in a civil rights demonstration while police with high powered rifles aimed at us were on roof tops across the street. I watched as 10's of thousands demonstrated against various government policies and the President himself. It wasn't me. It was us. We were there by the millions and we turned a nation from evil, albeit temporarily.
Today our battle is much greater. The enemies of this Republic are much stronger, while a new generation is much weaker. Yesterday, we could count on 10's of thousands in the streets. Today, we might get a few hundred. Every city, every college campus, every media outlet knew we were there. We never let them rest. Today, with 100 million more residents in the U.S., all we see is "rest". Those of us who continue in the struggle to save the nation given to us by God and our ancestors, are collectively frustrated. We are frustrated by the smirks, the blank stares, the rolling eyes, the laziness, the lack of study, the lack of life within the souls of most Americans. I said I know what it takes to turn a nation. I also know we, in the U.S. don't have it. We don't have even a small fraction of what we need. It's over. There just isn't enough time to gather what we need to stop the inevitable.
I should say there were two events that finally pushed me into throwing in the towel. The first was last Friday night coming home around midnight. On Alcoa Highway in Knoxville, there were 3 Police checkpoints in a span of about a mile. Each checkpoint had 25 to 30 police cars from all jurisdictions. We were not stopped. I remarked to my wife, and companion of the past 25 years, that's what a Police State looks like. She scoffed that it's just because a little girl was killed by a drunk driver 2 years ago and they just want to get drunks off the road. Then it hit me. In spite of thousands of articles written by me, tens of thousands of documents, videos, and audios and all of the discussions over many years, she remains unconvinced. The second event is the group, Planet Infowars. I was excited at it's founding. Now, with over 20,000 members you would think the communication would be white hot. In spite of 100's posting videos and articles on a regular basis, there is almost no discussion. 20,000 out of the 300 plus million in this country and even that is lukewarm.
I keep thinking about the passage in the Bible where God said he will send the "Grand Delusion". He must have had our nation on his mind, because it sure is there. History is replete with citizens of empires having this kind of attitude just before the fall.
To those who have stayed the course. I honor you. I honor those who went to the Bilderberger meeting. I honor those in We Are Change, who confront those evil beings who have destroyed our Republic. I honor those who go to Police checkpoints to confront their illegal searches. I honor those in Occupy Wall Street, who risk jail and assault to represent those millions who have been victimized by out of control greed. If I can be so bold as to speak for my generation (although no one asked me to), Thank You.
Now, what to do next? First and foremost, our remnant needs to ramp up to survive what's coming. If you haven't stored food yet, store it. If you don't have water filtration, get it. Ammunition, weapons, crossbows, medical supplies, sanitation supplies etc. You know the drill. If you have planned to leave the U.S., go now. If you thought about building a shelter, build it now. If you wanted an escape in the country, get it now. Nothing you can do is more important than your survival. Use this and other forums to exchange ideas on survival. You cannot be too prepared. If there is spare time, continue to educate and give opportunities for the few that may still be convinced. Pray for the rest. Be prepared to witness family, friends and loved ones, dying, arrested, homeless, poor, sick and in despair.
As for me, I will continue to post. I don't want anyone to say to me, "You never warned me". This isn't to convince. It is to convict. I will no more hand out any videos or articles or any other information to anyone I feel doesn't want it. I'm sure all of you know people who won't even watch a video or look something up on the internet. They are lost and because of them, America is lost.
