Fascism in America – The Devil Went Down to Georgia – by Philip Giraldi, InformationClearingHouse.info – “The attitudes expressed by at least some of the residents of Augusta Georgia suggest that they essentially support a “might makes right” and “you do what you have to do” attitude as it applies both to the United States and Israel. That the policies of both Washington and Tel Aviv have frequently created enemies abroad is apparently immaterial and not worthy of consideration, nor is there much receptiveness to a Christian appeal for peace and understanding. If that assessment is correct, it reflects a dangerous hardlining of attitudes held by Americans vis-à-vis the rest of the world.”

Obama Destabilizes Europe’s Economy: Sanctions Deepen the Recession – by James Petras, InformationClearingHouse.info – “No European country can benefit from embracing the failed regime in Kiev. . . Ukraine’s currency is in free-fall – ranking below soiled toilet paper. Its major industries, totally dependent on trade with Russia, are bankrupt or have been bombed by the NATO-putsch regime in Kiev. Its agricultural exports are devastated. Meanwhile Ukrainian families are advised to chop their own wood or dig their own coal in anticipation of a winter totally cut off from Russian gas because the oligarchs in Kiev have been unable or unwilling to pay the huge energy debt. . For their staunch support of this bankrupt regime, ruled by a ‘Billionaire Oligarch’ in Kiev, for upholding the ‘principles’ so lauded by Finnish President Stubbs, one million European farmers will bury their own apples, pour their own milk in the streets and dump their grapes, oranges and tomatoes in rotting heaps. . . And this is so their leaders, Obama, Cameron, Merkel and Hollande can uphold their real ‘principles’ of territorial expansion, extend their military operations to the borders with Russia and posture as warriors while destroying their countries productive economies, bankrupting their farmers and manufacturers, driving millions more into unemployment and deepening the pains of recession.”
New Social Media Surveillance Program Violates Privacy to Keep You Safe – by Joe Wright, ActivistPost.com – “Future versions of ChatterGrabber will feature interactive visualization via the EpiDash system and an enhanced partner interface, allowing users to adapt ChatterGrabber to their local dialect and public health conditions.

Robots Receive Internet Brain For Machine Learning – A new system called Robo Brain is being funded by the usual suspects in the military-industrial-surveillance complex – by Nicholas West, ActivistPost.com – ” ‘Our laptops and cell phones have access to all the information we want. If a robot encounters a situation it hasn’t seen before it can query Robo Brain in the cloud,’ said Ashutosh Saxena, assistant professor of computer science at Cornell University. Saxena and colleagues at Cornell, Stanford and Brown universities and the University of California, Berkeley, say Robo Brain will process images to pick out the objects in them, and by connecting images and video with text, it will learn to recognize objects and how they are used, along with human language and behavior… The project is supported by the National Science Foundation, The Office of Naval Research, the Army Research Office, Google, Microsoft, Qualcomm, the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and the National Robotics Initiative, whose goal is to advance robotics to help make the United States competitive in the world economy.” (emph. added) – Just whom, may I ask, is this “United States”?
Ret. Police Captain: Feds Use Provocateurs to Influence Public Opinion -
Feds also use provocateurs to “justify” the militarization of local law enforcement – by Kit Daniels, Infowars.com – “For example, radio host Dave Hodges claimed a Department of Homeland Security source told him the violent rioting and looting in Ferguson, Missouri, last week ‘was encouraged and exacerbated by undercover DHS agents posing as members of the Black Panthers.’.. The police used this violence to justify giving unconstitutional orders to peaceful protestors in Ferguson, who were the vast majority of those present, while armed with combat gear more suited for war in Iraq and Afghanistan than the American Midwest.”
BREAKING: Failed Rapper Identified as Suspect in James Foley Beheading – British Intelligence is actively hunting the 23-year-old former Londoner – by Rachel Browne, Alternet.org – “The hooded man with an English accent is believed to be 23-year-old Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary, known to fellow Islamic State militants as Jihadi John. The former rapper left his family home in an affluent west London suburb last year to fight in the civil war in Syria. In early August he tweeted a photo of himself wearing military camouflage and a black hood, while holding a severed head in his left hand.” – As if there is actual evidence to suggest the “hooded man” killed anyone. Perhaps guilty of participation in a Psy-Op? Interesting that he’s being sought by “British Intelligence.”
