Russian-BUKWhistleblower: U.S. Satellite Images Show Ukrainian Troops Shooting Down MH17 – Source tells award winning reporter Washington lying about responsibility for tragedy – by Paul Joseph Watson, Infowars.com – “In a related development, audio experts who conducted a study into the authenticity of a recording released by Ukrainian authorities which implicated Russian-backed rebels as being responsible for the missile attack on MH17 concluded that the tape was fabricated… ‘The tape’s second fragment consists of three pieces but was presented as a single audio recording. However, a spectral and time analysis has showed that the dialog was cut into pieces and then assembled. Short pauses in the tape are very indicative: the audio file has preserved time marks which show that the dialog was assembled from various episodes, the expert said,’ reports ITAR-TASS.

What Did US Spy Satellites See in Ukraine? – by Robert Parry, ConsortiumNews.com – “But here we are yet again with the MSM relying on unverified claims being made by the Kiev regime about something as sensitive as whether Russia provided sophisticated anti-aircraft missiles – capable of shooting down high-flying civilian aircraft – to poorly trained eastern Ukrainian rebels… This charge is so serious that it could propel the world into a second Cold War and conceivably – if there are more such miscalculations – into a nuclear confrontation. These moments call for the utmost in journalistic professionalism, especially skepticism toward propaganda from biased parties.”

High-Level NSA Whistleblower Says Blackmail Is a Huge – Unreported – Part of Mass Surveillance – from RINF.com – “(William) Binney explained to us the importance of this story: ‘Being able to blackmail people is one major aspect of bulk/mass collection that has not been talked about. E.g., they could use this data to blackmail members of governments around the world. But, surely just to get them to do what they wanted them to do. Just like J. Edgar Hoover did. This is on top of the ability to do world-wide industrial espionage.”

Steve_Simmons-Navy_VetNavy sailor exposed to Fukushima radiation reveals depth of government cover-up – by Jonathan Benson, NaturalNews.com – ” ‘[In] November 2011, I noticed something was wrong,” stated Simmons during a recent interview, as quoted by ENENews.com. ‘The black-out was the first thing… I started dealing with
gastrointestinal issues, at first I thought I was coming down with a
stomach bug… Fevers as high as 102.9°F… January 2012 was the first time I
was hospitalized… [They] sent me home with a sinus infection.’.. ‘Three days later I was readmitted to the hospital because my lymph nodes were swelling… that’s when my legs buckled and the muscle weakness started to onset… it’s been ascending from legs, trunk, arms, hands… I can’t really use the muscles much at all.’ “

What Corporate Media and Corporate Latino Politicians Won’t Tell You About Central American Child Refugees – by Bruce A. Dixon, BlackAgendaReport.com – “Just like the black faces in high places, the Latino political class doesn’t represent its people to or within the system, they are actually one of the faces the capitalist system presents to the Latino community. So it has fallen to the Latino political class to defend the president, who by now has deported more people than any president before him, and to defend the US empire by obfuscating the reasons those child refugees are here in the first place.”

Military@the_GoalHow America’s Sporting Events Have Turned into Mass Religious Events to Bless Wars and MilitarismThe religious reverie—repeated in sports arenas—is used to justify our bloated war budget and endless wars. – by Chris Hedges, Alternet.org – “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.”

Pictures of Neo-Nazi Crimes Supported By the US (warning – Extremely Graphic) – from Kawther.info – “The fatalities in Shuja’iyya included 17 children, 14 women and four elderly, whereas the wounded, estimated at a total of 210, included 62 children, 32 women and 15 elderly, according to the ministry… The IOF attacked the ambulances when they tried to reach victims. At least one medic was killed. Despite the efforts by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) to coordinate ambulance access, dozens of people were still under the rubble or on streets while IOF stalled allowing ambulances to reach them until ICRC secured a humanitarian truce for two hours, ending at 3:30PM.”

HillarySOSFrom the Stop-Hilary-for-President Desk: Clintons Reinstigated the Cold War with Russia – by John V. Walsh, DissidentVoice.org – “From watching the Clintons in the White House for eight years and from Hillary’s hawkish record as Senator and Secretary of State, there can be little doubt that her views are heartfelt. She remains a lethal admixture of neocon and humanitarian imperialist views, an American Exceptionalist, giddy with American military power, arrogantly confident that “our values” are universal and determined that no other power, however peaceful, will achieve the military or economic might to stand up to the U.S.”

Irrefutable proof that Big Pharma is a criminal racket: Bribery, scientific fraud, felony crimes and more – by Mike Adams, NaturalNews.com – “Those of us who have long been describing the pharmaceutical industry as a “criminal racket” over the last few years have been wholly vindicated by recent news. Drug and vaccine manufacturer Merck was caught red-handed by two of its own scientists faking vaccine efficacy data by spiking blood samples with animal antibodies. GlaxoSmithKline has just been fined a whopping $3 billion for bribing doctors, lying to the FDA, hiding clinical trial data and fraudulent marketing.”

Rally-Calif-against-cop-violenceDozens of people in California have rallied to protest against police brutality in the United States in the wake of recent killings (w/video) – from PressTV.ir – “Police officers in California rarely face punishment in shooting deaths… On Thursday (in New York), Eric Garner, a father of six, died after police officers pinned him to the ground and held him in a chokehold… At least four police officers brought down the man, who was begging cops to let him breathe as he helplessly (lay) on the ground.”

Kiev Attacks Donetsk, Headquarters for MH17 Response – by Tony Cartalucci, ActivistPost.com – “With a renewed assault by Kiev and its NATO backers on the very city selected to coordinate the response to the MH17 disaster, it appears an effort is underway to delay any meaningful investigation or resolution to the disaster, thus prolonging the politically-charged climate of anger, emotions, and baseless accusations the West has been brazenly exploiting, for as long as possible… It was the US itself that first demanded a ceasefire after the downing of MH17…”

Russian-MH17_videoMH17 Show and Tell: It’s the West’s Turn (w/video) – by Tony Cartalucci, ActivistPost.com – “Indeed, the evidence suggested Kiev’s regime deployed anti-air missile systems in Donetsk in and around the area where flight MH17 crashed. They also provided information regarding Ukrainian warplanes trailing flight MH17, the possibility of an air-to-air attack on MH17, and inconsistencies with Ukrainian air traffic control… There were a series of questions asked throughout the presentation – nothing was “concluded” – which is in direct contrast to the West which has shown the world nothing in terms of evidence, but has drawn many inflammatory, politically-motivated conclusions.”

New World Disorder: Emerging Division Between East And West Threatens To Plunge The Globe Into Chaos – by Michael Snyder, ActivistPost.com – “At this point, it seems clear that Russia plans to permanently decouple from the U.S. economy and the U.S. financial system. Just today we learned that Vladimir Putin plans to make Russia less dependent on U.S. companies such as IBM and Microsoft, and any future rounds of sanctions are likely to cause even more damage to U.S. firms that do business in Russia… But potentially much more troubling for the U.S. economy is the startling deterioration in the relationship between the Obama administration and China.  Some analysts are even describing this as ‘a tipping point’…”

Federal appeals court panel deals major blow to health law – from WashingtonPost.com – “The government immediately announced it was seeking an “en banc” hearing in the D.C. case, requesting that it be heard before the entire appeals court. The question ultimately may end up at the Supreme Court. But if subsidies for half the states are barred, it represents a potentially crippling blow to the health-care law, which relies on the subsidies to make insurance affordable for millions of low- and middle-income Americans.

MH17-passportsMH17: Are Pristine and Expired Passports a Smoking Gun for a False Flag? (w/videos) – from 21stCenturyWire.com – “The first problem with this is that, clearly, a number of these Passports have been ‘hole-punched’, in the upper left-hand corner, and ‘clipped’ (triangular cut-out from right-hand center front cover) indicating that they are either expired,  and are invalid for travel – making it impossible that any of these decommissioned passports could be used to travel internationally at the flight’s port of Departure in Amsterdam… The clip which ran across all US and western media outlets was only a partial clip, however, showing the passports to viewers in order to establish the human connection to the crash site… The full clip, which did not make it to US and world audiences show this pile of pristine passports being taken out of the rear trunk (or boot) of this man’s motor vehicle, suggesting that these items may have been planted at the scene, or used to fulfill a media image required to craft the early stages of this story.

California Halts Injection of Fracking Waste, Warning it May Be Contaminating Aquifers – State’s drought has forced farmers to rely on groundwater, even as California aquifers have been intentionally polluted due to exemptions for oil industry – by Abrahm Lustgarten, ProPublica.org – “The state’s Division of Oil and Gas and Geothermal Resources on July 7 issued cease and desist orders to seven energy companies warning that they may be injecting their waste into aquifers that could be a source of drinking water, and stating that their waste disposal ‘poses danger to life, health, property, and natural resources.’ The orders were first reported by the Bakersfield Californian, and the state has confirmed with ProPublica that its investigation is expanding to look at additional wells.”

High doses of antidepressants increase self-harm in children: Harvard – by Michael Beda, NaturalNews.com - 1 out of every 13 U.S. children is prescribed psychiatric pharmaceutical drugs. Pharmaceuticals artificially boost brain levels of serotonin, a boost that is bound to crash eventually… However, if the brain’s nutritional needs and imbalances are caught and understood before being worsened by medication, natural therapies nutrition can help restore the brain’s proper neurological secretions… Even CBS reported, “The [Harvard] findings are likely to inform an ongoing debate in psychiatry…”

Turkish PM Cuts Ties With US, Mulls De-Dollarization With Russia – by Tyler Durden, ZeroHedge.com – “In 2013, the volume of trade between the countries amounted to 32.7 billion dollars. Russia is the second (after the EU) among foreign trade partners of Turkey, and Turkey – the eighth largest trade partner of Russia…  As one of the measures to stimulate the development of trade and economic relations between Russia and Turkey, the Turkish side proposes to proceed in mutual national currencies. The question now being discussed at the site of the bilateral Working Group on banking and financial cooperation.”

Jacksonville Implements Orwellian Police State, Going to 18,000 Homes Looking for Drugs and Guns – by John Vibes, TheFreeThoughtProject.com – “In addition to the aspects of the project which are being funded through asset forfeiture, the department is also asking for tax funding of over 3 million dollars for new officers.  The stated goal of this program is to decrease violent crime, most of which is related to the drug trade.  However, the violence of the drug war is a direct result of prohibition, and the best way to stop that violence is to end prohibition.”

Danny_Ayalon“Most” killed in Gaza “deserved it” even though they were children and civilians, says Israel’s Danny Ayalon – by Ali Abunimah, ElectronicIntifada.net – ” ‘If you compare the situation in Gaza to the situation in Syria today,’ (Deputy Foreign Minister) Ayalon said, ‘where the Assad regime just mercilessly butchers people and children there is a big difference and I would say that most of the people that were hit in Gaza deserved it as they were just armed terrorists.’

Audrey Landmann, MSF medical coordinator in Gaza, said Israel’s ground offensive has meant “indiscriminate” bombing, and noted that ‘those who die are civilians.’ “

Israel using US-supplied CW against Gazans: Analyst – from PressTV.ir – “On July 18, Ashraf al-Qudra, a spokesperson for the Health Ministry in Gaza, said Tel Aviv is using a ‘strange toxic gas’ against Palestinians in the coastal enclave, adding that dozens suffered from suffocation after inhaling a white poisonous gas fired by the Israeli military.”

City Cracks Down with Toughest Curfew In Country — Parents Face $500 Fines – from PatriotRising.com – “But will it work?..  ‘I don’t know if it’s going to do anything,’ said one teen…  ‘It’s already been in place in Panama and all the kids do is break the rules and nothing really is done about it,’ said Alexandra Diaz-Albertini…  The law, while meant to do more good than harm, is drawing criticism from parents who, with the new law could be fined $500 if their kids are out late…  A stiff price to pay but other parents say it could help…  ‘Maybe they would be more strict if they had to pay $500,’ said Ieasha Daughtery.”

Demon-of-MH17What Putin Knows – Putin Knows What Happened to MH17, But He’s Not Saying–Yet …. – by Mike Whitney, InformationClearingHouse.info – “So, one way or another, we’re going to know what happened.  The US and Russia have the data they need to figure out where the missile was launched and who launched it. They probably even have recordings of  communications between Air Traffic Tower and the airliner. They know it all, but they’ll probably be cautious about what they reveal and when they reveal it… My guess, is that Putin will drag his feet to see whether the investigation is thorough, transparent and even-handed or an elaborate hoax used to discredit him in the eyes of his trading partners.”

William_Binney2-captThe ultimate goal of the NSA is total population control – At least 80% of all audio calls, not just metadata, are recorded and stored in the US, says whistleblower William Binney – that’s a ‘totalitarian mentality’ – by Antony Loewenstein, Guardian.co.uk – “One of Europe’s leading web creators, Lena Thiele, presented her stunning series Netwars in London on the threat of cyber warfare. She showed how easy it is for governments and corporations to capture our personal information without us even realising… Thiele said that the US budget for cyber security was US$67 billion in 2013 and will double by 2016. Much of this money is wasted and doesn’t protect online infrastructure. This fact doesn’t worry the multinationals making a killing from the gross exaggeration of fear that permeates the public domain.”

Coldest Antarctic June Ever Recorded – from WattsUpWithThat.com – “June this year also broke the June daily minimum temperature record, with a new record low of -34.9c (-30.8F)… Other unusual features of the June temperature record are an unusual excess of sunlight hours (11.8 hours rather than the normal 7.4 hours), and unusually light wind conditions.”

Tom_Vilsack-FTThe Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and the Corporate Hijack of Europe – by Colin Todhunter, GlobalResearch.ca – “Science is a common language… we will be working towards making sure that whatever agreements are reached, they are consistent with sound science.”-Tom Vilsack, Monsanto stooge – “Coming from the GMO biotech industry, or its political mouthpieces, the term “sound science” rings extremely hollow. The industry conceals the data produced by its research under the guise of ‘commercial confidentiality’ [5], while independent research highlights the very serious dangers of its products [6,7]. It has also engaged in fakery [8], bribery [9] and intimidation [10] as well as the the distortion [11] and censorship of science [12]. If “sound science” is to be held in such high regard, why resort to these methods?”

The Return of George Orwell – Big Brother’s War on Palestine, Ukraine and the Truth – by John Pilger, InformationClearingHouse.info – “Since the invasion of Iraq – the exemplar of an act of unprovoked aggression the Nuremberg prosecutor Robert Jackson called “the supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole” – Blair and his mouthpiece and principal accomplice, Alastair Campbell, have been afforded generous space in the Guardian to rehabilitate their reputations. Described as a Labour Party “star”, Campbell has sought the sympathy of readers for his depression and displayed his interests, though not his current assignment as advisor, with Blair, to the Egyptian military tyranny.”

Brazil-Resisting_evictionAmid Federal Land Grab in Brazil, Whole Towns Evicted at Gunpoint – by Alex Newman, TheNewAmerican.com – “Reporters on the scene and even federal lawmakers suspect bloodshed may be near. The government, however, has vowed to expel the communities at any cost, threatening those who refuse to comply with criminal charges and even confiscation of what little remains of their personal property. Rubber bullets, tear gas, and threats of real bullets and prosecution have all been employed to forcibly remove the locals, whom the government continues to dehumanize as ‘invaders’ and ‘intruders.’.. Critics and local residents have accused the government of Brazil of mass corruption, saying the end goal is to smash private property ownership and all potential resistance — starting with the rural population. They argue, among other points, that federal authorities are doing the bidding of foreign interests and are in cahoots with the UN, massive international corporations, Western-based non-governmental organizations like Greenpeace, and other interests.”

Parents can get refunds for some anti-depressant drugs given to kids – by Blythe Bernhard, STLToday.com – “Forest Pharmaceuticals pleaded guilty in 2010 to federal charges that its Missouri-based sales force illegally marketed Celexa and Lexapro for use in children and teenagers when the drugs were only approved by the Food and Drug Administration to treat depression in adults. The company bribed doctors with cash, meals and travel to prescribe the drugs to children, according to the federal charges.”

usd-to-sdr Impact of IMF SDRs for Commercial Trade – by James Hall, ActivistPost.com – “Allowing the IMF to manage the economic outcomes of all trading nations’ commerce is like putting the fox in charge of the chicken coop. The success or shortcomings of individual nation’s trade transactions need to rest upon the economic fundamentals of the deal, not compliance with IMF rules and regulations. The impact of using SDRs translates into the loss of sovereignty.’

Iraq Inherits Israeli Practices via US Occupation – by Haifa Zangana, BrussellsTribunal.org – “The practices of the Zionist Regime are shown in many forms; it begins by describing Arabs of all religions as terrorists, and ends by their arrest and torture, to add to the apartheid practices of racial physical segregation. Palestinian cities are infested with checkpoints and surrounded by them. Cities are no more. The aim of this policy is to force people to abandon their land and emigrate. All of this happens under the banner of “Israel is a democratic, peace-loving country”, if not “Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East”… This, in many ways, is similar to what has been taking place in the “New Iraq”. Recall that Israeli brutal practices had been part and parcel of the practices towards Iraqis in the first nine years of the US/UK occupation of Iraq from 2003 to 2011. Israeli ways were adopted, and surpassed, in training of the Iraqi army and the Iraqi Special Forces, in interrogation and torture of detainees and above all in collective punishment and segregation. This same policy continued and is still applicable now by the Iraqi regime…”

How the War on Drugs and the War on Terror Merged Into One Disastrous War on All Americans – The consequences are measured in lives, limbs and cash. – by Alex Kane, Alternet.org – “In November 2009, Senator Russ Feingold (D-WI), questioned Department of Justice official David Kris about the Patriot Act being used to execute the war on drugs. The assistant attorney general’s response was telling: ‘This authority here on the sneak-and-peek side, on the criminal side, is not meant for intelligence. It’s for criminal cases. So I guess it’s not surprising to me that it applies in drug cases.’  Feingold responded by pointing out that the Patriot Act was sold as needed to fight terrorism, not ‘regular, run-of-the-mill criminal cases.’.. One facet of the ever-growing trend toward militarized police forces is the use of informants to figure out which houses to raid. The informants used in the vast majority of drug cases are typically people involved in the drug trade who have escaped a jail sentence—or had a sentence reduced—at the price of helping the police.”

The CDC and HHS Are Planning for Mass Casualties in the United States – by Dave Hodges, TheCommonSenseShow.com – “While appearing on Hannity, Sheriff Joe Arpaio stated that the border patrol crisis is a deliberate ploy designed to force amnesty. I would suggest to Arpaio that with the definitive spread of illnesses among this population, there may be a much more sinister possibility such as the one that one of Arizona’s most prominent physicians, Dr. Jane Orient spoke of when I interviewed her 10 days ago. Dr. Orient used words such as “collusion” and “bioweapons attack” during the course of our conversation. Dr. Orient expressed concern that the Border Patrol is being threatened with prosecution for speaking out about the looming health crisis.”

From the If-You-Read-One-Whole-Article-This-Week Desk: Germany Pivoting East – by Dr. Jim Willie, Gold-Eagle.com – “Berlin is outraged by clear USGovt spying, and in process of conducting a Gold audit among their population. Germany is building motives to split from the Euro Monetary Union (common Euro currency) by forging stronger open ties with Russia & China. The justification is becoming plainly laid out, in four perceived indictment charges. The Jackass believes Germany will break from US/UK and its USDollar fiat currency regime over four primary thorny issues. The four are major indictments, all extremely serious, all indicative of a decayed system and morally bankrupt leadership. The charges are coming into view, highlighting fundamental commercial, philosophical, and ethical conflicts that distinguish the two nations (considering US/UK a single entity). The issues center on the following key differences: 1) Good relations with Russia and continued energy supply from Gazprom 2) Displeasure over planned Draghi Euro Central Bank bond monetization 3) Disgust over NSA espionage by USGovt, with benefit for US corporations 4) Damage to German population from gold price suppression.

Pedro Alberto Monterroso-NavasNo Resort For Illegals: Undocumented Immigrant is Arrested for Murder Amidst Vargas PR Stunt – by Shawn Helton, 21stCenturyWire.com – “…it was acknowledged that the Obama administration awarded over $190 million to the BCFS to build an infrastructure with offices in six cities for the influx of illegals crossing over into the country. Due to public backlash, the BCFS is no longer seeking to take on the hotel housing project for illegals that was slated to be finished in October.

Prosecutors and Judge David Gideon have defended the one-year sentence, saying that they had no other way to punish someone who repeatedly broke the law… Doing so was necessary to show that the court would ‘no longer tolerate her willful actions in violation of the orders of this court,’ Judge Gideon wrote in a decision explaining the sentencing.”

UK banks ‘have much to fear’: competition watchdog set to probe Lloyds, RBS, HSBC and Barclays – by Stefan Wermuth, RINF.com – “In theory, an inquiry could order a full-scale break up of Britain’s largest banks.

Israel Awakens the Palestine It Tried to Crush – by Ramsey Baroud, Uruknet.info – “It is clear that there can be no third Intifada that leaves Abbas and his wretched political apparatus in place. This is precisely why Palestinian Authority goons prevented many attempts by Palestinians in the West Bank to protest the Israeli violence unleashed in the occupied territories, which finally culminated into a massive war against Gaza that has killed and wounded hundreds. These very PA officers who stood by as the army raided Palestinian homes at will were the ones that swiftly moved to crush Palestinians who tried to assemble in protest.”

great-white-shark-watermelon-carvings-2Police state insanity: Man arrested for carving watermelon in a ‘passive-aggressive’ manner – by L.J. Devon, NaturalNews.com – ” When his wife returned home later on, she found a watermelon on the kitchen counter with a butcher’s knife in it. That’s when she called the police again and reported that her husband cut up the melon in a “passive aggressive” manner… The woman may have felt threatened, but she could very easily be retaliating. According to police, the couple is currently going through the process of divorce… Whatever the case, the police arrested this man on the basis of an assumed thought crime. When police are given this kind of power, anyone can be locked up and charged for just about anything.”

Globalist Mouthpiece Calls For The Entire Planet To Adopt The ‘National Identification System’ One European Country Has Established – by Michael Snyder, InvestmentWatchBlog.com – “The Economist article about this national identification scheme went largely unnoticed because it had a very boring title: ‘Estonia takes the plunge’.  But the content of the article is absolutely startling.  The Economist article calls the Estonian national identification system a “cyberdream” and makes it sound like it will solve all of our problems…”

Crime and no punishment; putting babies on psychiatric drugs – by Paul Fassa, NaturalNews.com – “No one should use Big Pharma’s toxic drugs to support the myth of brain chemistry imbalances. Even the FDA prohibits prescribing these to children under five. Yet in 2013 the number of babies under one year of age in the USA prescribed dangerous psychotropic drugs was well over a quarter-million.”

Highly Recommended: The New World (Re)Ordered – by V the Guerilla Economist, Prophezine.com – “The EAI is divided into two parts. The first part is known as the Eastern European Union or EEU, in which Russia is the dominant power of influence.  The second part is comprised of the EurAsian Initiative and members of RCEP (Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership), whose major dominant power is China.  Together, they comprise a trade zone that encompasses a whopping seventeen time zones! “

Video: Military Chaff filmed falling near Crash Site of MH 17 (?!):

MH17: World See Tragedy, US Sees “Game Changer” – by Tony Cartalucci, InformationClearingHouse.info – “NATO’s Atlantic Council claimed in a statement titled, “In the Ukraine War, Putin’s Veil of Deniability Has Vanished,” claims: ‘The Kremlin’s thin veil concealing its waging of war against Ukraine effectively disappeared weeks ago for anyone carefully watching the evidence. But now it has vanished even for the casual observer. Moscow’s escalation of the war since the start of July has created too much clear evidence to permit President Vladimir Putin any further benefit of the doubt.’ “

Greater_Israel2“The Israeli Dream”: The Criminal Roadmap Towards “Greater Israel”? – Ethnic Cleansing Planned in the Middle East? History, Legality Ignored – by Felicity Arbuthnot, GlobalResearch.ca – “At the time Yinon wrote, the eight year, Western driven Iran-Iraq war was into its second year – with another six grinding years of loss, tragedy and heartbreak, valleys of widows, orphans, maimed, on both sides of their common border. The toll on life and health was compared to World War 1. Iraq of course, in an historic error, had virtually been fighting a proxy war for an American regime, even then obsessed with Islam, which, in Iran they had decided was the wrong sort of Islam. What the faith of a nation thousands of miles away had to do with Capitol Hill, remains a mystery.”

Flight MH17 Conjures MH370, Exposing Western Deception, Leading To More Questions – by Shawn Helton – ” ‘They try to show to the whole world that we are responsible for the crash. It is very strange that without any evidence my colleagues from western media would like to find somebody who is responsible for the crash,’ Antonov stated. ‘It seems to me that this is part of information warfare which has been started against the Russian Federation and armed forces.” He also added, “As for me, I don’t want to use this opportunity to blame anybody. I would just like to raise few questions for my colleagues from the armed forces of Ukraine,” Antonov said.”

The Bernaysian Manipulation of the Human Psyche – by Steven MacMillan, ActivistPost.com – “Men are rarely aware of the real reasons which motivate their actions . . . It is chiefly the psychologists of the school of Freud who have pointed out that many of man’s thoughts and actions are compensatory substitutes for desires which has been obliged to suppress. A thing may be desired not for its intrinsic worth or usefulness, but because he has unconsciously come to see it as a symbol of something else, the desire for which he is ashamed to admit to himself….”

John-Munster-KerryAmerikistan, Not Afghanistan… Warocracy, Not Democracy – by Hakim, Uruknet.info – “If anything, Gandhi’s non-violent call to ‘Quit India’ needs to be made — let John Kerry be warmly welcomed according to genuine Afghan hospitality, but also be respectfully asked to ‘Quit Afghanistan’!”

Dozens injured as Israeli forces storm al-Aqsa Mosque (again) – from PressTV.ir – “A report published by the al-Aqsa Foundation in October, said the Israeli regime is planning to build a synagogue in the al-Aqsa Mosque compound as part of its efforts to further Judaize the occupied Palestinian territories… Over the past decades, Israel has tried to change the demographic makeup of al-Quds by constructing illegal settlements, destroying historical sites, and expelling the local Palestinian population.” – “Never let a Good Crisis go to waste” U.S.-Israeli Dual Citizen Rahm Emanuel

Erdogan2Turkey PM calls Egyptian president ‘illegitimate tyrant’ – from PressTV.ir – “The Turkish premier went on to say that Cairo “is not a party … They are trying to legitimize (the Sisi administration) in Egypt. It is not a legitimate administration. It is illegitimate.”.. Egypt’s Foreign Minister Sameh Shoukri said Erdogan’s comments are “unacceptable.”

More Evidence of False Flag against Russia – by Alfred Adask, Adask.wordpress.com – “But Mish Shedlock (“Mish’s Global Economic Trend Analysis”) posted an article entitled “Video of Rebel Buk Launchers Headed Back to Russia?”  That article reports an analysis of the previous Ukraine video.  That analysis claims that,  ‘going by the billboard and other features of the scenery [in the video], Russian bloggers and news sources claim to have identified the road in the video as having been taken in or near the town of Krasnoarmeisk (“Krasnoarmiysk” in Ukrainian), which has been under Kiev’s control since May.’ “

United-Nations-bldg-flags-logoA World Tax is Close to Implementation – by Harold W. Pease Ph. D, LibertyUnderFire.org – “In the most recent G-20 meeting held last February in Australia, proponents were falling all over themselves with excitement over the plan. In a joint communiqué they wrote: ‘We endorse the Common Reporting Standard for automatic exchange of tax information on a reciprocal basis and will work with all relevant parties, including our financial institutions, to detail our implementation plan at our September meeting’ (“A New World Tax Regime,” New American, April 21, 2014, p. 20). They continued with an appeal to all nations ‘that have not yet complied with the existing standard for exchange of information on request to do so and sign the Multilateral Convention on Mutual Administrative Assistance in Tax Matters without further delay.’ “

US elite running genocide in Ukraine – On Wednesday, July 2nd, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko resumed unlimited war against the residents of southeastern Ukraine, whom he calls “terrorists” for their wanting not to be killed by his troops – by Eric Zuesse, PressTV.ir – “One article is a March 3rd poll, which showed “Few Americans want the United States getting involved in policing the political turmoil in Ukraine.” The presumption there was that “we” shouldn’t fix “their” problems.” Who knew that “we,” our own President, is the mastermind behind that ‘turmoil,’ and of this actual ethnic cleansing campaign?”

The New York Review of Books as Propagandist on Ukraine’s Civil War – by Eric Zuesse, OpEdNews.com – “It’s only to say that Obama really did force the people of Ukraine’s southeast to terminate rule from Kiev. That might not have been Obama’s intention (if he was so stupid as not to know better, which is highly unlikely), but it’s what he in fact did, and there can be no doubt whatsoever about this. And all the lying in the world won’t change that fact, even if it will, tragically, deceive the American public, about it, and about the important history that’s now being made there.”

Breedlove-skulks-away

Bilderberg on Ukraine: military chiefs, arms bosses and billionaire speculators – A gathering of those who stand to make a killing out of knowing where and when the bombs might fall, how many and on whom – by Charlie Skelton, TheGuardian.com – “Samsom confirmed that the morning meeting had been about what was happening in Ukraine, which explains why Rasmussen and Breedlove were hot-footing it out the door straight afterwards. Their job was done. Or just starting… And make no mistake. Bilderberg is part of their job. This wasn’t a jolly. This was briefing papers, dress uniforms and military aides. Land Rovers packed with military bodyguards… This is Nato business. US military business. Government business.”

Council’s plan trying to ‘strip people of right to live in the countryside’ – by Claire O’Sullivan, IrishExaminer.com – “According to Midleton-based candidate Wayne Halloran, the draft blueprint for the development of the county sets out that only those who work on the land should get planning permission to live in rural areas… ‘As outlined on pages 60 and 61 of this document, planning permission will only be granted to those working on the land, those who have lived there for more than seven years, or those who have emigrated for over seven years and now want to return home to take care of elderly parents,’ he said… ‘It goes against the history, the nature, and the rights of Irish people to force such a ruling upon them. The established parties seem happy to fill the countryside with pylons and wind turbines, but cannot find space for the rural population that wish to live in a quiet, community-based lifestyle. They seek a life where they are surrounded by nature, by fresh air and by tranquillity.’ “

Connecticut-Four-librariansFour librarians gagged and threatened with prison time under the Patriot Act – from PoliceStateUSA.com – “What’s more, Mr. Christian was placed under a perpetual gag order.  The NSL prohibited the recipient “from disclosing to any person that the F.B.I. has sought or obtained access to information or records under these provisions.”  The gag order was broad enough that it was a crime to discuss the matter to any other person — for life.”

CEO Of One Of The World’s Largest Energy Majors “Sees No Reason For Petrodollar” – by Tyler Durden, ZeroHedge.com – ” ‘There is no reason to pay for oil in dollars,’ he said. He said the fact that oil prices are quoted in dollars per barrel did not mean that payments actually had to be made in that currency… So even a major beneficiary of the status quo appears to see the end in sight for the Petrodollar.”

Google-dont-be-EvilFrom Google to Amazon: EU goes to war against power of US digital giants – In Europe there is a growing fear of becoming a ‘digital colony’ ruled by Silicon Valley, whose giant firms wield huge power over privacy – and like to avoid tax. Now regulators are striking back – by Juliette Garside, TheGuardian.co.uk – “Either we defend our freedom and change our policies, or we become digitally hypnotised subjects of a digital rulership,” Gabriel warned in a passionate call to action published by the Frankfurter Allgemeine. “It is the future of democracy in the digital age, and nothing less, that is at stake here, and with it, the freedom, emancipation, participation and self-determination of 500 million people in Europe.”

It’s politics, not science, driving climate mania: Why are environmentalists and scientists so reluctant to discuss long-term increases in southern hemisphere sea ice? – by Andrew Mountford, Dailymail.co.uk – “So vast swathes of the data are actually from ‘zombie’ stations that have long since disappeared.  This is bad enough, but it has also been discovered that the  US’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is using estimates even when perfectly good raw data is available to it – and that it has adjusted historical records… Why should it do this? Many have noted that the effect of all these changes is to produce a warmer present and a colder past, with the net result being  the impression of much faster warming… They draw their conclusions accordingly.”

US Troops Have Secretly Been Deployed to Somalia Since 2007 – by Thomas Gaist, GlobalResearch.ca – “The deployment of a significant number of “trainers” and “advisers,” that is, of Special Forces soldiers, for years on end and without any form of public disclosure, raises ominous questions. What other secret deployments has Washington ordered during the past decade? How many new secret wars will the president and his top appointees decide to launch during the next year?”

migrant-kidsObama Administration Refuses to Stem Tide of Illegal Children Crossing Border – Blames Bush as crisis grows worse by the day – from Inforwars.com – “On Sunday, DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson refused to say if tens of thousands of children will be deported or allowed to stay. He said the country’s sovereignty is secondary to the government’s obligation to illegal children… ‘We have to do right by the children,” he said… Republicans demand the Obama administration deport the children immediately.”

The Only Thing More Shameful than the Shelling of Eastern Ukraine is the Silence From the Left – from SCGNews.com – “After four failed attempts at occupying eastern Ukraine with ground troops, Kiev has resorted to the cowardly and shameful strategy of indiscriminately shelling entire cities. This has been going on for over a week now… Why do I reserve a special mark of shame for pseudo left? Because they dress themselves up as champions of humanitarian values and compassion. If you were to take the image they project at face value, you might be inclined to believe that they were against all forms of violence, especially war. After all, anytime someone gets shot in the United States they plaster it all over the front page, but somehow the use of heavy artillery against entire cities in eastern Ukraine doesn’t qualify (nor did the toppling of Libya or the funding and arming of the Syrian rebels for that matter). “

Donetsk-Destroyed_BridgeThree bridges on key routes into Donetsk are ‘destroyed by rebels’ amid fears of new bloodshed in a violent last stand against advancing Ukrainian troops – by Will Stewart, Dailymail.co.uk – “At a rally in the Donetsk’s central square yesterday, pro-Russian commander, a Muscovite using the name Igor Strelkov, told thousands of supporters that his men would fight for the city, which was ‘much easier to defend than little Slaviansk’… Businesses have closed down and thousands of residents are believed to have fled as the fighters fortify positions and buildings in the city, which they have held for the past few months… But the government government pressed what it clearly saw as its advantage, announcing it had carried out an air strike against rebel fighters who had attacked the airport in Luhansk, another eastern city, on Sunday… It accused separatists in the area of opening fire in populated areas under the guise of being government forces.”

A Potential Foreclosure Crisis Looms Over America – Local governments, however, could resort to tactics such as eminent domain if the federal government won’t do anything – by Ellen Brown, Alternet.org – “Only 29% of US homes are now owned free and clear, a record low. Of the remaining 71%, 70% are securitized through MERS. That means that class-action lawsuits by county recorders could potentially establish that title is defective to 50% of US homes (70% of 71%)… If banks, investors and federal officials want to avoid this sort of display of local power, they might think twice about turning down reasonable plans for solving the underwater mortgage crisis of the sort proposed by Senator Merkley, Professor Hockett and Attorney Cahan.”

Jim_Yong_KimWorld Bank chief backs launch of BRICS bank – World Bank chief says new entrants will help the multilateral lender battle poverty and spur growth rather than threaten its position – by Victoria Ruan, SCMP.com – “The initiatives are expected to boost China’s clout, which sparked concerns that the new banks might compete with existing multilateral lenders, such as the World Bank and the Asian Development Bank, in which Washington and Tokyo have the biggest voting rights respectively.”

U.S. Soccer Team Microchipped By Doctors – by Sonali Basak, GovtSlaves.info – “Using matchbox-sized GPS tracking devices, team physician George Chiampas can follow his players’ every move to help keep injuries at bay — especially those that could keep his best out of the tournament… The technology helps measure the distances his players run as well as their workload over time… “That’s just one example of the data we use,” said Chiampas, who oversees one of the world’s best-conditioned teams.”

Internatl-security-hollywood Why Are Armed “International Security” Personnel Now Arresting American Citizens? – by Bernie Suarez, ActivistPost.com – “As I recently found out, this includes “International” private armed security companies who are being given the power to arrest people in the streets. When the state municipalities begin to sell the “service” of policing the people, funded by programs that were not approved by the people but instead by a small group of business owners, we are walking down a slippery road to corporate tyranny.”

US State Department says Kiev has right to use airstrikes against civilians – from VoiceOfRussia.com – “According to US State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki, the Ukrainian government defends the country, inflicting air strikes on civilians in the east of the country. She stated this today at a regular meeting with reporters…Psaki said that Kiev had the right to do it, so it protects the integrity of the country. ‘The Ukrainian authorities are protecting the country. I think they have to have every right to do it, it is the same way to act in the international community..’ “

US ‘kidnaps’ Russian MP’s son to ‘exchange him for Snowden’ – from RT.com – “Roman Seleznyov, 30, was arrested at Male international airport as he was about to board a flight to Moscow. He was forced by US secret service agents to board a private plane to Guam and was later arrested. The Russian ministry slammed his detention as ‘a de-facto kidnapping.’.. Moscow considers the kidnapping ‘a new hostile move by Washington,’ and accused the US of ignoring proper procedure in dealing with foreign nationals suspected of crimes… ‘The same happened to Viktor Bout and Konstantin Yaroshenko, who were forced to go to the US from third countries and convicted on dubious charges.’ “

Nigel_LawsonLord Lawson: BBC has banned me because of my climate change scepticism – Former chancellor accuses ‘Stalinist’ BBC of silencing debate about climate change after it bowed to complaints over his comments on Radio 4′s Today programme – by Raziye Akkoc, Telegraph.co.uk – “The BBC Trust issued a progress report earlier in July saying the corporation should not give equal air time to climate change sceptics… It was also revealed that BBC journalists are being sent on courses to stop them inviting so many cranks onto programmes to air ‘marginal views’.”

Chomsky, BDS And The Jewish Left Paradigm – by Gilad Atzmon, Gilad.co.uk – “The verdict is clear. The occupation is not the problem; it is just a symptom of the problem. The Jewish state is a problem and it is a serious problem. The Jewish Lobby is an even greater problem and it is a global one. And as it seems, even the Jewish Left a la Chomsky is also a grave problem. At the very least it has been an obstacle that prevented the Palestinians from grasping the real context of their struggle.”

Hillary Clinton says she supports GMOs – from NaturalNews.com – “In a recent speech before the world’s largest biotechnology meeting in San Diego, Clinton — who commands speaking fees of about $225,000 per speech — was enthusiastic in her support for the use of GMOs in farming and agriculture in general.”

pipeline-gazpromUkraine gas debt exceeds $5bn, no June payments made – Gazprom – from RT.com – “Ukraine also says it could get up to 20 billion cubic meters in reverse flow from neighboring Slovakia, Poland and Hungary, which it expects to compensate for part of the “lost” Russian gas. However Gazprom and RT experts doubt that even having the equipment to reverse the gas flow, the scheme would be legal… Russian President Vladimir Putin called such supplies artificial saying there’s no way one pipe could be used to supply gas in both directions… The President said that Russia “sees everything”; however the country is not responding, only because it doesn’t want the situation to worsen.”

Corruption, fraud and bureaucracy cost US healthcare system up to $272 billion annually – by Jonathan Benson, NaturalNews.com – “…a bulk of the nation’s medical fraud occurs within public sector health services like Medicare and Medicaid, which account for more than one-third of all known fraud… As explained in a recent piece for The Economist, nearly $100 billion in fraud takes place within the confines of Medicare and Medicaid spending, while the remaining $172 billion occurs elsewhere. And once Obamacare kicks into full gear, the level of fraud will balloon even further, as it already has just within the realm of the Obamacare healthcare exchanges, most of which have failed despite hundreds of millions of dollars in government spending.”

Child_killed-South_UkraineThe United Nations is Complicit in the Massacre of Civilians in Ukraine – by Prof Michel Chossudovsky and Julie Lévesque, GlobalResearch.ca – “Human Rights Commissioner Navi Pillay’s statements are in blatant violation of the mandate of the United Nations: ‘The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) has lead responsibility for the promotion and protection of human rights, … It has been given a unique mandate by the international community, through the General Assembly, to do so… We [the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights OHCHR] … receive and consider direct complaints from victims of human rights violations, and appeal to governments on behalf of victims…We work to ensure the implementation of international human rights standards on the ground ... [We] are reaching out to the people who need it the most.’ (OHCHR website, emph. added)”

Cameron-Poster_ChildBritish Politicians In ‘Secret Deal’ To Allow Mass Surveillance Of Public – by Steve Watson, Prisonplanet.com – “In response to the rush to make the practice law, the Open Rights Group condemned the plan, urging that the government knows there is ‘no legal basis for making internet service providers retain our data so it is using the threat of terrorism as an excuse for getting this law passed’… The government is arguing that it has to act legislatively because the European court of justice has deemed that the data retention was a breach of privacy rights. In other words what they are already doing is against the law, so the government is attempting to change the law.’ “

US officials, including Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey, were also informed of the plan… Cameron was told that the plan to form the anti-Assad militant group would take a year. He was also told that, once ready, the militants would march on Damascus, with the cover of fighter jets from the West and Persian Gulf Arab state allies… The UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) has declined to comment.”

European, American and African policemen are prepared here for deployments in war areas. The centre is mainly financed by the United States… The European Gendarmerie Force (EGF), founded in 2006, also has its headquarters in Vicenza. Eight European states are represented in the EGF, and Turkey has observer status. The conditions of deployment of the EGF are extremely flexible: it can be placed under the command of the EU, the UN, NATO, or the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).”

Border Town to Spend More than Half a Mil Aiding Influx – More than $100K spent solely in the month of June illustrates how surge is weighing on local economies – by Adan Salazar, Infowars.com – “The impact to local economies has led some districts, such as Laredo, to denounce digging into public funds. On Monday, Laredo Mayor Raul Salinas indicated he would no longer be diverting public funds to aid the influx in fairness to his residents… ‘We’re strapped. We cannot put the local taxpayers in strain,’ Mayor Salinas said. ‘We’re not going to raise taxes. If we use some tax money, and we’re tight for money now, are we going to get reimbursed? That’s the challenge that we face.’ “

Monsanto’s Herbicide Linked to Fatal Kidney Disease Epidemic: Could It Topple the Company? – by Jeff Ritterman, M.D., Truth-out.org – “Very few Western medical practitioners are even aware of CKDu, despite the terrible toll it has taken on poor farmers from El Salvador to South Asia… Dr. Catharina Wesseling, the regional director for the Program on Work and Health (SALTRA) in Central America, which pioneered the initial studies of the region’s unsolved outbreak, put it this way, ‘Nephrologists and public health professionals from wealthy countries are mostly either unfamiliar with the problem or skeptical whether it even exists.’.. Dr. Wesseling was being diplomatic. At a 2011 health summit in Mexico City, the United States beat back a proposal by Central American nations that would have listed CKDu as a top priority for the Americas.”

Ukraine- Kiev’s Genocide: What’s Happening in Slovyansk – by George Eliason, OpEdNews.com – “What people are learning is that the only place that seems to be safe is the militia. Using the aftermath of Slovyansk as an indicator, it really doesn’t matter what a person’s position was on the referendum or the Russian language. Many in the small towns speak Ukrainian, but that didn’t help. People in Slovyansk who supported Kiev are being treated like those in the militia: shot and killed, or sent to a filtration (concentration) camp. The militia doesn’t seem to be the real target. Throughout the war, Kiev has targeted civilians and infrastructure. to date, official Novo Russia (Southeast) figures indicate that 80% of the casualties have been civilian.

ISIS-fighters-w-fires“The Battle For Baghdad” – A Backgrounder On ISIS’ Grand Plan – by Tyler Durden, ZeroHedge.com – “…ISIS also intends to break the Iraqi state permanently so that it cannot recover. This is essential in order to protect the Islamic Emirate from external attack. ISIS may not seek to make Baghdad its capital; Baghdad is far from the center of Iraq’s Sunni heartland and sits along the contested corridor that separates the Sunni and Shi’a majority lands in Iraq. Rather, ISIS likely seeks to destroy the government of Iraq, to destroy the Iraqi Army, and to ensure that Baghdad does not remain a viable Shi’a capital. It is more reasonable to expect that ISIS has a battle plan for Baghdad than to presume that ISIS would not create one because they recognize how difficult the task of controlling the city.”

Why ISIS Won’t Take Baghdad – by Jamie Dettmer, TheDailyBeast.com – “The Americans presumably will make the defense of the capital a priority, but that may be precisely what ISIS hopes they will do, because it has other interests. ‘The priority, I think, for ISIS is to build their Islamic State straddling the Syria-Iraq border – that is their ultimate objective—and trying to capture Baghdad would be too big for them to accomplish; it could also sidetrack them,’ says a US intelligence official based in the Middle East who is closely monitoring ISIS.”

French lawmakers adopt ‘anti-Amazon’ bill to help out small bookshops – by Agence France-Presse via RawStory.com – “The bill bans online giants such as Amazon from delivering books without charge, but still allows them to set discounts of up to five percent, the maximum allowed under existing French legislation… In 1981 the government ruled that publishers must set a standard selling price for their books in a bid to protect small retailers and set a limit of five percent on any discount… Culture Minister Aurelie Filippetti welcomed the parliamentary approval, saying it showed ‘the nation’s deep attachment to books.’ “

TIME-shia-v-ssunniDivide and Rule: US State Dept Plan to Split Iraq Along Sectarian Lines – by Andrew McKillop, 21stCenturyWire.com – “Some prominent alternative  media commentators will describe how the dividing Iraq along sectarian-ethnic lines has been on the drawing board of the Pentagon “for at least 10 years”. This argument  says Washington wants the outright suppression of the el-Maliki Baghdad regime and all the institutions of the federal government, leading to a process of political fracturing, eliminating Iraq as a country. Of course, you can cite Israel’s very real Oded Yinon Plan - a plan which appears to be in play right to today.”

ISIS CRISIS: $500 Million Sought in ‘War Funds’ for Rebels in Western Proxy War & Israeli Oil Shipments – by Shawn Helton, 21stCenturyWire.com – “The US media storm has been spinning overtime over ISIS, touting many dramatic pictures of mass-executions as ‘evidence’ of their takeover of Iraq, and using this crisis yet another pretext to ramp-up military budgets and security threats at home. Most of the ‘mass execution’ images put forward in media have since been exposed as pure fakery, although this hasn’t deterred US and European media ‘experts’ or US State Department and UK Foreign Office officials… As the ‘ISIS Crisis’ appears to spiral out of control, it exposes the Western government-transnational corporate agenda, that seeks to expand the current proxy war in Iraq, as well as to neighboring nations by directly financing terror rebels – this time with Congressional approval.” (emph. from orig.)

Crisis-You-Call-It18 Signs That The Global Economic Crisis Is Accelerating As We Enter The Last Half Of 2014 – by Michael Snyder, ActivistPost.com – “Most Americans tend to only care about what is happening in the United States, but the truth is that serious economic trouble is erupting in South America, all across Europe and in Asian powerhouses such as China and Japan. And the endless conflicts in the Middle East could erupt into a major regional war at just about any time. We live in a world that is becoming increasingly unstable, and people need to understand that the period of relative stability that we are enjoying right now is extremely vulnerable…”

New Study Promotes Agenda 21-Style “Land Grabs” – by Kevin Samson, ActivistPost.com – “The press release focuses on the notion that modern techniques, industrialized agricultural methods, and land-grab deals are the potential saviors in the equation to provide food for the planet. Naturally, when we hear about “modern techniques” we are really talking about biotech, and Monsanto primarily. The biotech industry continues to assert that modern-day farming must be driven by genetic modification in order to provide more consistent crop production in ever higher yields, thus we can conclude that this is the direction that will be taken with the stolen acquired land.”

Gas-2-EuropeRussia Reveals “Plan B”: Gazprom Says Gas Transit Via Ukraine May Be Stopped Completely – by Tyler Durden, ZeroHedge.com – “At least we now know what the Ukraine endgame will look like: as Russian transit through the country is completely cut off, the nation will lose all strategic importance first to Russia and then to Europe, which is still over-reliant on Russian gas (see map below), but which will increasingly turn its attention to the countries which the South Stream passes through.”

Feds Threatening ‘Third Wounded Knee’ with Eminent Domain Land Grab on Sioux Indian Reservation – by Patrick Henningsen, 21stCenturyWire.com – “Thousands of tribe members will be affected by the land-grab. Some residents will be forced to relocate, and many more others will lose their income from grazing allotments on the land – a result which will ultimately force any remaining independent cattle ranchers out of business.”

Blackwater Iraqi chief threatened to kill US govt. inspector: newspaper – from RT.com – “The Blackwater chief said ‘he could ‘kill me’ at that very moment and no one could or would do anything about it as we were in Iraq,’ Richter recounted in the memo. ‘I took Mr. Carroll’s threat seriously. We were in a combat zone where things can happen quite unexpectedly, especially when issues involve potentially negative impacts on a lucrative security contract.’..

Protesters Force Re-Routing of Buses Carrying Illegal Aliens – by Julie Watson, CNSNews.com – “After the migrants are processed, Immigration and Customs Enforcement will decide who can be released while awaiting deportation proceedings… Earlier in the day, a chartered plane landed in San Diego with 136 migrants on board, according to a federal Department of Homeland Security official who was not authorized to be named when speaking on the issue… It was the first flight planned for California under the federal government’s effort to ease the crunch in the Rio Grande Valley and deal with the flood of Central American children and families fleeing to the United States… The government is also planning to fly migrants to Texas cities and another site in California, and it has already taken some migrants to Arizona.”

Right-Wing Christian Group Tried to Convert This City’s Kids — But They’re Fighting Back – Child Evangelism’s efforts to convert kids is facing organized opposition – by Valerie Tarico, Alternet.org – “One of their key tools is an after-school program called the Good News Club, which takes place in public grade schools across the country. Good News Clubs mix snacks, games, art projects and stories with upbeat moral lessons and the theology of blood sacrifice. In a case that went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, Child Evangelism Fellowship argued that they were entitled to operate in public schools because they are running a social and moral enrichment program akin to Scouting.”

On one hand, their expert opinions were tainted and, on the other, their research was oriented towards military applications. This era is back: the Pentagon is now the leading sponsor of social sciences in the United States. It seeks primarily to understand how citizens become involved in a political movement in order to manipulate and control it.”

Sloviansk-damageUkraine: Kiev’s Ticking Time Bomb – by Tony Cartalucci, ActivistPost.com – “The eventual fall of Kiev will spell the end of EU-NATO expansion. The inability of NATO to prop up one of its client states will destroy confidence across all other prospective members tempted by NATO’s assurances. Both its methods of overthrowing the Ukrainian government during the “Euromaidan” protests, and its attempts to consolidate power afterward are well documented and being judged by an increasingly astute global public. The ability for NATO to perpetuate itself through these methods, driven by its current hegemonic agenda is as tenuous as ever.”

‘Refugees’: News Networks Refuse to Call Illegals Illegal – by John Nolte, Breitbart.com – “The Orwellian language is likely a result of polling that shows 59% of the country rightly blame President Obama for the current immigration crisis, and just as many  say that ‘the children should be ordered to leave the country.’.. There’s no question that Obama and the Democrat Party’s amnesty rhetoric lured tens of thousands of illegal immigrant children to risk harrowing journeys over hundreds and thousands of miles to get here. They are now overwhelming our immigrations systems and risking the spread of disease. “

There is No “Government”

This is a comment that I put up on Foster Gamble’s recent blog post: PEOPLE STANDING FOR JUSTICE
(http://www.thrivemovement.com/people-standing-justice.blog)

If we look at it carefully, there is actually no such “thing” as government. What we call government is an organized structure composed of people using the concept of government as an organizational principle under their direction. Under this principle, the preservation and actualization of the imaginary structure of government itself is the preeminent imperative. The constantly propagandized need for this structure is the multifaceted and mind-numbing justification for the use of whatever means are necessary to protect and preserve, not the people who are supposedly subjects of the government, but the government structure itself. Whatever means necessary include the use of lethal force. History shows that the levels of lethal force used are limited only by the technological tools at the disposal of government actors and their ability to control the reactions and consciences of the governed. The latter is sometimes called manufacturing consent.

While the population can work, often at the cost of extreme suffering and sacrifice, to limit the irrationality and violence of the structures to which they’re subject, we see that over time people taking the role of government officials always tend to enlarge the scope of their powers, as well as the power of the technology and systems they control. The nature of the government concept inevitably attracts people without ethics against the misuse of power into pursuing power in its structure. In fact, the only way to succeed in rising to power is to abandon ethical considerations and, again, to use the means necessary to prevail over other state officials. As John Trudell said, “Their violence works. It hardly ever fails.”

A simple analytic for the validity and legitimacy of human behavior is to see if it involves violence or aggression toward other people or toward living systems. If it does, then we must be called by clear realization to not support it, whatever the rationale or justifications. As people seem to be realizing very rapidly now, it is impossible for us, however lofty our notions or rhetoric, to reach an ethical result through unethical or aggressive behaviors. This is not a matter of compiling a complicated set of rules, but by a clear seeing of what’s going on under our noses. Adopting such a simple ethic is certainly not the easiest course for our egos to take. It can be very rigorous and demanding. On the other hand, if we really want to transcend the cycles of violence and increasing suffering and destruction in which we’re now embedded, this ethical consistency and determination will be more easy than any other alternative

My Comment on Chuck Norris’ article arguing against “allowing” Americans to use cannabis

Cannabis_Saddhu

Posted at: http://www.wnd.com/2014/01/chuck-norris-smokes-marijuana-debate/

Cannabis has more than 60 phytocannabinoids, molecules that dock with receptors in every organ system in the human body and tend to contribute to our health in many ways. No other plant on Earth has been found to contain more than one of these substances. Cannabis has been used as a medicine and psychotropic REMEDY and sacrament by cultures all over Asia, Europe and Africa for thousands of years. The Constitution clearly says that the U.S. Government only has the limited powers specifically granted to it in the document, which do not include controlling what people use for their health, physical or psychological.

People who use cannabis tend to see things outside of the boxes that Americans tend to be forced into mentally by our, arguably pathological and dominating, culture. Many of the positive aspects of the 60′s youth culture were no doubt due to this effect. When cannabis was (Unconstitutionally) “outlawed,” under the influence of industries that competed with non-psychoactive industrial hemp, 30% of the medicines sold in pharmacies in the U.S. contained cannabis. What is the true explanation of why it was suppressed? What possible legitimate justification or jurisdiction is there for people who disagree with its use, to dominate users through lethal force, imprisonment, property theft or other social sanctions?

2013 in review on the Real Truth Blog

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog. The bottom line is that this blog is known and visited by “an elite few” denizens of the web. Congratulations for your taste and discernment!

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,200 times in 2013. If it were a cable car, it would take about 20 trips to carry that many people.

Michael Hastings demise was no accident – his car was BOMBED

Car-morningAfter

Please, this was not “a suspicious car accident.”

The photo above clearly shows that Michael Hastings car was bombed. The entire front of the driver’s side of the car has been blown away.

The video linked HERE, from LoudLabs News, shows clearly that Hastings’ car hood was not crumpled from striking the palm tree, but blown away from the drivers side of the car and did not even hit the tree. MORE THAN THAT it also shows that the driver’s side front quarter of the car WAS GONE, and not even touching the tree (no serious impact damage to the palm).

The video and the photo above show that the front of the car up to the drivers side door wasn’t there. Moreover, his engine and transmission were blown 60 yards down the road, not in the direction of his car supposedly striking the tree. They landed on the far curb of the 4-lane road with no skid marks. His front right wheel was also down the road in the direction the car was traveling when “something happened.” See diagram of crash scene HERE

The tranny of the car extended well back into the passenger compartment, implying that the powerful explosive was likely placed below the passenger compartment, in order to provide the momentum to blow the drive train 60 yards forward and to clear the firewall upward doing it.

It’s time to stop pussy-footing around about this event. Hastings was assassinated.

The Multiple Prongs of Agenda 21 (slight return)

Agenda_21_Cover-500px

The Multiple Prongs of Agenda 21 (slight return)

Agenda 21 is an action plan or blueprint for a future desired by its creators. This desired future is shrouded in feel good environmentally protective development and innovation, otherwise referred to as green, green movement, and/or environmentalism. Sadly, Agenda 21 is an utter ruse for representing, to many activists and activist groups, a darkly dystopian future as being utopian. There is a larger picture to Agenda 21 that many people either refuse to acknowledge or are determined to deny.

Agenda 21 is one of several pincers in a concerted program. Most people don’t realize precisely what Agenda 21 does, and many don’t acknowledge that it will be a nightmare for the vast majority of humanity. Unless you’re a Bureaucrat, Technocrat, Bismarkianist or member of the elites, as well as a psychopath/sociopath, Agenda 21 is nowhere near a utopia. Its principle underlying tenet is rigid control, with the destruction of rights, liberties and freedoms and their transformation into mere privileges at the discretion of those in control.

Unfortunately, Agenda 21 is much more sophisticated, as it is coupled with multiple prongs that implement its active development. The first is Bismarkianism; this is a three-stage process using a bait and switch to manipulate people into tolerating and accepting expansion of centralized control through globalized governance.

The first stage is socialism, as this creates incentives for the populace to support implementation of public-private partnerships, rewarding fiefdoms, and granting benefits that pacify the populace. Once this stage is in place, public relations or propaganda is used to shift into national socialism that entails making many of these public-private partnerships into permanent parts of the state apparatus.

It isn’t much of a stretch to speculate that after the next economic crisis strikes the United States, public-private partnerships will start becoming fully merged. It looks like the first solid official merger will be of government with banking, through the Federal Reserve. With this centralized public-private government-banking partnership, established in 1913, and with the addition of the corrupt and unprosecuted fraud of designating banks as Too Big To Fail, the result will be a private banking authority with official state power. Public-Private mergers can then repeat this Progressive meme to enable the acceptance of the official establishment of totalitarianism, the creation of an invisible oligarchy with absolute authority.

Some readers may be skeptical about this. However, this will facilitate the approaching “democracy” movement. Masses will be manipulated into denying the rights of various minorities. Congress will become little more than a rubber-stamp under the President’s authority, no longer a separate Constitutional body with checks and balances separating it from the “Unitary Executive.” Centralization will be able to further entrench itself through welfare and warfare aka bribes and “security.” This is perhaps the main mechanism driving Agenda 21, as it combines welfare, interstate commerce, re-interpretation of the supremacy clause, and national security.

The next prong is the Malthusian and Eugenicist merger and re-imaging of Eugenics through Neo-Malthusianism and women’s health/reproductive health. The Neo-Malthusianism prong is perhaps the most hidden of the prongs, though with more visible components such as women’s health/reproductive rights and transhumanism. These prongs would not be complete without the supranational/universalist movements. This is where Agenda 21 operates as a supranational action plan to be coordinated through local implementation, completely altering the Constitutional relationships of local, state and national governments to become regional government “stewards” or soviets of the supranational body. In this particular case, the supranational body and its subsidiaries will be evolved from the United Nations.

These make up a non-exhaustive list of the prongs of Agenda 21 and what they are designed to do. This is to consolidate and expand power behind a centralized authority under the control of the global elites.

Agenda 21 is not compatible with inherent individual rights and freedoms. It is a Collectivist movement. One of humanity’s oldest struggles is between individualism and Collectivism under elite control.

The difference between a collective and a community is that: In a community a group of individuals live in proximity to one another and people work together through cooperation for mutual benefit, protection, and livelihood. Collectives operate under mandates for each individual to accept “rights and responsibilities” dictated by the governing body, which creates separate categories of individuals with different statuses in order to promote its control. This is divide and rule, like a hive or ant colony, not a community. Every individual’s benefit to the Collective is really his or her benefit to the governing regime; the individual is of little to no inherent value in such a system.

In the movie Swordfish, the John Travolta character asks “If you could cure cancer but had to kill one child, could you kill that child?” The Collectivist answer is not only a resounding ‘YES!’ it also dictates that the child should gladly be willing to die, even in great pain “for the greater good.” Why is this relevant? Agenda 21 strips individuals of their unalienable rights, liberties, and freedoms and instead grants them privileges and responsibilities at the governing regime’s discretion. This is slavery. The whole march of the United States toward the despotism, authoritarianism, and totalitarianism of a Police State, and the erosion of the Constitution, which supposedly exists to protect natural rights, is driven by Agenda 21, with its Neo-Malthusianism and planned full merging of public-private partnerships under state authority. In fact, Agenda 21 names every human being in the world, as well as everything in Nature, as only a piece of capital and a resource to be inventoried and allocated. This is an enslavement designed to force people to love, yearn for, and even insist on the servitude of all, the ultimate triumph of Collectivism.

Agenda 21 is an action plan that is being implemented at the local level but is derived from the supranational institution of the United Nations; it is a plan or blueprint designed to turn us all into collective capital and resources. We are to be enslaved with privileges that can be revoked in an instant at the whim of any bureaucrat placed over us by the elite consensus, and with the forced responsibility to do their bidding. Agenda 21 is shrouded in feel good activism from the environmental/green movement; its implementation can only be halted through informing ourselves about what Agenda 21 is and refusing to comply with its implementation.

Agenda 21 operates under the rubric of sustainable development that plans for environmental accounting of human, land and resources in the interests of the Collective. It mandates that every human project needs to be given permission by the soviet control apparatus. Every one of us is to be only a resource under the control and allocation of sustainable development. Bill Gates once announced that the only way to bring down CO2 emissions will be to bring population, consumption and production down to near zero. Sustainable Development effectively means suppressing class mobility, consumption, freedom and, ultimately, population. These policies will result in widespread starvation, war, poisoning and despair. This means that Agenda 21 is an action plan hiding its true intentions behind a smokescreen of feel good activism to enable its full tyrannical implementation in the name of environmental welfare.

What is Voluntaryism?

Poster_Board-e-700

What is Voluntaryism?

“The thought of how much the human race would have advanced without government simply staggers the imagination.”  Doug Casey, 1979

Voluntaryism is a name for a new model of human organization that can revolutionize world society to release people’s untapped and suppressed potentials.

Introduction from Voluntaryist.com: “Voluntaryism is the doctrine that relations among people should be by mutual consent, or not at all. It represents a means, an end, and an insight. Voluntaryism does not argue for the specific form that voluntary arrangements will take; only that force be abandoned so that individuals in society may flourish. As it is the means which determine the end, the goal of an all voluntary society must be sought voluntarily. People cannot be coerced into freedom. Hence, the use of the free market, education, persuasion, and non-violent resistance as the primary ways to change people’s ideas about the State. The Voluntaryist insight, that all tyranny and government are grounded upon popular acceptance, explains why voluntary means are sufficient to attain that end.”

The converse of Voluntaryism is often called Statism, or the idea there can exist a collective authority that supersedes the authority of individuals.

This Statist ideology pervades our culture and our world. This situation is often accepted by us as simply being “the way it is.” If we look at this carefully and clearly however, we’ll see that “the State” can only ever be a conceptual fiction under which individual humans act using this imagined collective authority. This has developed and has been perpetuated over thousands of years by rulers and their minions, who were under the erroneous and delusional impression that it created advantages for them that made their lives easier and more prestigious.

  • It seems reasonable to speculate that over these many generations of living under governments, there have been intelligent yet psychopathic members of the power elite who have recognized the utility of more social control – of enhancing the hypnotic power of the imaginary institutions they command through psychological manipulation of the populations, the bureaucratic minions and enforcers, and even of those believing themselves the nobility or legitimate leaders.

Because most of us have accepted that this collective power is The Way It Is, we are conditioned to shy away from the consideration that it is never legitimate for us to give this imaginary State invasive privileges that we can’t exercise as individuals.

If people are to be responsible for providing their own abundance, then it is arguably in our own best interest that those around us are as strong and capable as possible, so society can flourish as a whole. Harming others’ abilities to perceive life with clarity and think critically about what they see would therefor only be hurting ourselves. Another corollary to this is the idea that when we attack others, we also feel attacked ourselves at a subconscious level. What goes around, comes around. We then live in a world of fear. This fear is increased if we face irrational, authoritarian, defensive and psychopathic behaviors by “Leaders,” “Representatives,” or officers invested with a belief in their power over us.

  What we now experience as the “educational system” is a highly sophisticated product of many generations of psychological enhancement that operates directly counter to what common sense will tell us will build a strong society.

To truly come into my own power, I must first accept others coming into theirs without any conditions or personal preferences.

  In our current model, we are hypnotically addicted to the idea that we must attain preeminence over others.

  • If I want to promote this unspoken necessity for power, a set of hidden strategies tends to be constantly generated and updated in my mindspace.
  • I tend to see people not as the unknowable mysteries they are, but only as resources for getting advantages prioritized in my hidden strategies. If I don’t see them as having value for gaining preeminence, they have no interest or value for me.
  • Crucially, to advance in rank in society, one needs to serve the interests of people above oneself in the pecking order. This begs the question of just what is being served when one rises to the top of an institution.

In order to open the flow of energies (goods and services) from others – and from Source – I need to open my inner source, for energies to flow outward, producing value that is under demand by my fellow beings.

  Because of the repressive strategies used by people operating “under color” of authority – Typically as “governments” or government-privileged institutions, i.e. corporations – we are now impeded from offering many kinds of essential goods or services that can potentially solve critical issues we now face.

  • Governments generally claim monopoly power to represent the interests of people, often called “citizens,” within the conceptual area – i.e. “State” – over which they claim to have “jurisdiction” – or control. Marc Stevens teaches that “the State” claims legitimacy as a “body politic” which has jurisdiction over citizens: “persons” who make a pledge of allegiance in return for the State’s duty of protection. However, within the U.S. no court has ever ruled that government has incurred any liability for failure to protect its citizens.

One area in which people such as Marc Stevens are producing value for others is in teaching them to protect themselves from invasion and usurpation of their time and energies by people trying to use others to gain illegitimate advantages for themselves. Ultimately, these kinds of services can develop into voluntarily accessed alternatives for many of the functions of “governments.”

  This is highly inconvenient to the purveyors of the worldwide system of control by violence. The system is now coming under the unprecedented threat of the awakening of populations the elite ruling consensus depend on to provide the skills and energy to maintain their hegemony.

  It seems that now, in the early 21st Century, the control agenda has become so developed and pervasive that it is threatened by the arising of any human capabilities not under direct control of the elites. In particular, new ideas in the areas of energy, health, agriculture, social organization and human development directly menace the interlocking institutions of repression.

  • As new technologies emerge to empower the “peasant classes” to transcend their dependence on entrenched systems, Statist cabals will be driven to choose between escalating their use of violence, or acquiescing to change.

The idea of political power is that any means necessary must be employed to enroll the levels of agreement and compliance in the population to attain desired political goals. This amounts to coerced control; war by other means. Once a political process has secured the impression of agreement, or “manufactured consensus,” then State violence is employed in enforcing “democratic” policy. In this sense, political methods violate the basic principles of Voluntaryism.

  As to how we can “get there from here,” the specific pathways are not yet clear. However, if we commit ourselves and adhere to the principles of Voluntaryism, this clarity is certain to emerge. If we steadfastly refrain from violation of others’ lives, are faithful to voluntary agreements we make, and are always open to feedback, criticism, and correction of mistakes, methods of development and social organization we’re not yet aware of will be found. If we lose our resolution and cut corners, we will return to the descending course of our increasingly dangerous fall into corruption.

The transition to an all-voluntary society is the paradigm shift that most of humankind now intuits is coming. The idea is radical: going to the root of the delusions and illusory goals that have plagued us throughout history. Yet at the same time, it is very simple. As we go on, we will feel and intuit more easily those times when thoughts arise of acting in violation of the Sacred Space of others. Avoiding those mistakes, we will gradually feel more free, and more unencumbered with troubled consciences and fears. As these skills begin to become realized, we’ll be on the verge of entering a new world.
