Shooting at Charleston, South Carolina, church leaves at least eight people dead, several injured | 17 June 2015 | Police are on the scene of a mass shooting at a historic black church in Charleston, South Carolina. It happened around 9 p.m. Wednesday around the Emanuel AME Church. Sources told ABC News that at least eight people are dead, and several are injured. Emanuel AME Church is one of the largest, oldest black congregations in the South.

A gunman remained at large early Thursday after nine people were shot and killed in Charleston, South Carolina, during a Bible study session at one of the nation’s oldest African-American churches, authorities said.

“I do believe this was a hate crime,” Charleston Police Chief Gregory Mullen said early Thursday near the scene at Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church.

Among the victims was the church’s pastor, the Rev. Clementa C. Pinckney, 41, a Democratic member of the state Senate, two sources told NBC News.

Mullen said police were called on a report of a shooting at the church at 9:05 p.m., and when officers arrived there they found eight people dead and others injured. Two of the wounded were rushed to a hospital, and one of those victims later died, he said.

“This is a tragedy that no community should have to experience. It is senseless,” Mullen said. “It is unfathomable that somebody in today’s society would walk into a church, when people are having a prayer meeting, and take their lives.”

The great TPP deathtrap for India, China

And the other 10 member-nations

The terms of destruction

The clues are all there in Obamatrade and Obamacare

by Jon Rappoport

June 17, 2015

“Once in a while, a major leak oozes out of the government-corporate nexus. First responders and damage-control experts quickly arrive on the scene and throw a blanket over the shocking revelation. Media fall silent. Nothing happened. It was a momentary delusion. Everything is fine. To the degree that the public becomes aware of the truth, the public registers utter disbelief and denial. Why? Because believing this one thing would torpedo their faith in the whole structure of the synthetic invention called Reality.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

The truth emerges out of the shadows of secrecy…

Let’s start here. The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a trade treaty, coming down the homestretch toward ratification, involving 12 nations which account for a staggering 40% of the world’s GDP. The TPP encompasses 775 million consumers.

Waiting in the wings is something much larger. It is the intention, up the road, to fold India and China into the treaty.

China is the most populous nation in the world. 1.4 billion people. India is the second most populous. 1.28 billion people. India is projected to overtake and pass China by 2025.

During his seven years in office, the most publicly recognizable PR man in the world, Barack Obama, has sweated and hammered on two policies. Just two. He is now in a panic over forcing one of those: the TPP. The other one was Obamacare. That’s it. Everything else was a Sunday picnic in the park.

Obamacare, the US national health insurance plan, when you strip it down to basics, was about one thing: bowing to drug companies.

It brought huge numbers of new people, previously uninsured, into the game. Meaning those people would be able to take the drugs—and the prices for those drugs would remain high.

So it is with the TPP, as it turns out. One of the major priorities is forcing member countries to accept higher pricing on medical drugs. Which was exactly the deal in Obamacare. Big Pharma backed Obamacare for the express purpose of cutting out debates about lowering costs on drugs.

In that respect, Obamacare and the TPP are mirror images of each other.

One other vital detail: the TPP will also allow pharmaceutical companies to push drugs and force them into markets where, ordinarily, they could be rejected as unsafe.

The problem? Well, how about this: every year, in the US, by a conservative assessment, medical drugs kill 106,000 people.

Donald Trump Campaign Offered Actors $50 to Cheer for Him at Presidential Announcement | 17 June 2015 | Donald Trump’s big presidential announcement Tuesday was made a little bigger with help from paid actors — at $50 a pop. New York-based Extra Mile Casting sent an email last Friday to its client list of background actors, seeking extras to beef up attendance at Trump’s event. “We are looking to cast people for the event to wear t-shirts and carry signs and help cheer him in support of his announcement,” reads the June 12 email, obtained by The Hollywood Reporter.

New $10 bill will feature a woman, Treasury Department announces | 17 June 2015 | Last year in a Kansas City speech, President Obama said he received a letter from a young girl asking why there were no women on American currency…Now, the Obama administration is following through on that idea. The Treasury Department has announced that it’s redesigning the $10 bill to feature a woman. “Our democracy is a work in progress. We’ve always been committed to a more perfect union,” Treasury Secretary Jack Lew told reporters Wednesday. “This decision to put a woman on the $10 reflects our aspirations for the future, as much as it is a reflection of the past.”

… It must be hard to work every day wielding the kind of power and authority a policeman has and remaining grounded, humble, connected to the people you serve.  The violence that comes with the job over time erodes idealism, hardens you to ordinary surprise, banks your sympathy at often miserly rates because it’s hard to do your job and retain an intact core of humanity that must nevertheless be there for you to function.  Protecting people requires sympathy, but it can become muddled in the contradictions inevitable in protecting people from other people who in their turn need (and deserve) your protection.

Russia Accuses US Of Placing Bio-Weapons Labs On Its Borders

Russia’s Foreign Ministry has accused the U.S. of using a Georgian “health center” to mask its activities in the field of biological weapons research close to Russian borders, according to a report in TASS.

The ministry’s comments came in a statement last week, where it slammed the U.S. for undermining international efforts to strengthen the Convention on the Prohibition of the Development, Production and Stockpiling of Bacteriological (Biological) and Toxin Weapons and on their Destruction.

The Washington government has “long chosen the tactics of the spread of provocative conjectures and insinuations against other states on the issues related to the specified Convention,” the ministry said, in reaction to a Report on Adherence to and Compliance With Arms Control, Nonproliferation, and Disarmament Agreements and Commitments from the U.S. State Department.

Moscow took issue with a facility located in Tbilisi, Georgia, called the Richard G. Lugar Public Health Research Centre, which it accuses of being a secret high-level biosafety containment laboratory.

“It has long been sheltering a medical research division of the US Ground Forces, which is a branch of the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research (WRAIR),” the Foreign Ministry said.

The ministry went on to accuse U.S. and Georgian authorities of conspiring to conceal the facility’s true activities, which are focused on the research of dangerous infectious diseases with a view to making them into bio-weapons. It added that the U.S. is making efforts to establish similar camouflaged bio-weapons facilities in other Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) states, and that it has an “obvious disinterest” in strengthening the Convention as a collective security instrument.

The ministry pointed to the U.S.’s previous obstructive behavior on the issue, saying it unilaterally disrupted multilateral negotiations on a universal BWC verification mechanism in 2001, and has been blocking the resumption of talks ever since then.

In the interest of global peace, the United States must mend relations with China, or else suffer the consequences of World War III. At least, that’s what billionaire investor George Soros says.

Both the US and China have a vital interest in reaching an understanding because the alternative is so unpalatable,” Soros wrote in an article for the New York Review of Books.

“… The prominent front-page story was titled: ‘British spies betrayed to Russians and Chinese; Missions aborted to prevent spies being killed’. It sounded like an exciting plot for a James Bond film. And the first line was suitably dramatic:

‘Russia and China have cracked the top-secret cache of files stolen by the fugitive US whistleblower Edward Snowden, forcing MI6 to pull agents out of live operations in hostile countries, according to senior officials in Downing Street, the Home Office and the security services.‘ (our emphasis)

What followed was a series of assertions from faceless sources, backed by zero evidence and outright falsehoods…..

This is raw submission to power with the result that:

‘government officials know they can propagandize the public at any time because subservient journalists will give them anonymity to do so and will uncritically disseminate and accept their claims.’

As Greenwald observes, there is a long history of anonymous government accusations and smears being laundered through the media whenever damaging information is revealed by whistleblowers….”

[&&]{**}[##]

The latest, astute Media Lens alert [above] examines the astounding regurgitation – entirely unfiltered – by the Sunday Times and the BBC of British state propaganda against Edward Snowden.

The misinformation campaign – alleging, without a shred of evidence, that the Russians and Chinese have cracked Snowden’s encrypted files, placing secret agents in harm’s way – was designed both to discredit Snowden and smooth the way for Britain to subject us to new, even more draconian surveillance.

In Britain, the only major media organisation to come out of this affair smelling of roses is the Guardian, which questioned the credibility of the allegations. Media Lens observe that kicking back against the Sunday Times / BBC “revelations” offered “an opportunity for liberal journalists to attack the corporate competition in the form of a Murdoch newspaper and make themselves look good”.

This is certainly true, but I think we can see additional reasons the Guardian took their stance in defence of Snowden.

The main one is actually territorial. The Snowden files are the Guardian’s story. He’s their “product” – they even won a Pulitzer Prize for publishing his leaks. They therefore have every interest in defending him from attacks, because such attacks discredit them too. Had the Guardian conceded the turf war to the Sunday Times, the implication would have been that they, like Snowden, had “blood on their hands”.

Further, most Guardian staff are genuine liberals.

Does Ed Snowden Really Trust Apple?

by William A. Blunden / June 16th, 2015

In the wake of Congress passing the USA Freedom Act Ed Snowden composed an editorial piece that appeared in the New York Times. There are aspects of this article that may surprise those who’ve followed events since Snowden first went public two years back.

For example, Ed referred to the bill as a “historic victory” though there are skeptics in the peanut gallery like your author who would call it theater. That is, an attempt to codify otherwise expired measures which have been of little use according to their stated purpose. The USA Freedom Act provides the opportunity for elected officials in Washington to do a victory lap and boast that they’ve implemented restructuring while former American spies, with a knowing wink, understand that what’s actually been instituted is “hardly major change.”

Moving onward through his laudatory communiqué, Ed warns that hi tech companies “are being pressured by governments around the world to work against their customers rather than for them.” He opted not to say who was being leaned on.

But wait, he did mention a name. It’s just that, in this specific case, it was in the context of a product placement for one of the world’s largest technical companies. Here’s the excerpt:

Basic technical safeguards such as encryption — once considered esoteric and unnecessary — are now enabled by default in the products of pioneering companies like Apple, ensuring that even if your phone is stolen, your private life remains private.

Let’s consider for a moment the underlying assumptions inherent to this narrative. The messaging scheme at work is one which allows business leaders to channel public outrage by depicting corporations as unwilling partners who’ve every intention of protecting the privacy of their users instead of knowingly cavorting with spies.

CEOs like Tim Cook have gone so far as to publicly scold their industry for monetizing user data. Specifically, in a speech delivered at an event hosted by the Electronic Privacy Information Center Cook stated:

They’re [tech companies] gobbling up everything they can learn about you and trying to monetize it. We think that’s wrong. And it’s not the kind of company that Apple wants to be.

Hold it right there.

Keep in mind that Apple is a colossal multinational company. It has no qualms about collecting information on users, using slave labor to save a buck, stockpiling profits overseas to avoid paying taxes, giving companies like Google unencumbered access to its user base, participating in a wage-fixing cartel, or cooperating with the NSA when executives (who chatted up spymasters on a first-name basis) thought that they could get away with it.

Can a profit-driven monolith like Apple be trusted to do the right thing when it’s just as easy to secretly continue doing otherwise? If we’ve learned anything from the Snowden revelations it’s that intelligence services exist primarily to pursue the interests of private capital. Why not have their cake and eat it too? Assuage the public with encryption marketing pitches and then bury their collusion even deeper. Issues like “trust” in the corridors of the C-suites are usually viewed as a mere public relations issue.

Apple wouldn’t lie to us again, right?

The OPM Hack and the New DOD Law of War Manual 

Last Friday was a big day in cybersecurity news. OPM announced that, in addition to the compromise of the personnel information of federal employees revealed on June 4, Chinese hackers also breached a database containing millions of security clearance forms. Meanwhile, on the other side of the Potomac, the Department of Defense released its new Law of War Manual — the first since 1956 — including a new chapter on “Cyber Operations.” Considering the OPM hack in light of the Law of War Manual shows why, as a legal matter, the U.S. government is in a tough spot in responding to the hack.

Debates are raging over just how damaging the two OPM hacks are. In the first of what are sure to be many congressional hearings on the breaches, Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) asserted that she “consider[s] this attack … a far more serious one to the national security” of the United States than the 9/11 attacks. Others have called the hacks the long-warned-about cyber 9/11 or cyber Pearl Harbor. But other commentators have pushed back. Robert Knake of CFR noted that he is “a bit blasé” about the hack because “if the Chinese government is indeed behind it, it’s not by any stretch the most dastardly thing they have done in cyberspace.” Prof. Henry Farrell on the Washington Post‘s Monkey Cage blog similarly explained that “hacking into information on U.S. government employees, however sensitive, is not a Pearl Harbor attack,” but rather “an (extremely worrying) exercise in espionage.”

That’s also the rub for international law. However damaging the hacks ultimately are to US national security — something that will be revealed only over time — they were fundamentally espionage, not an act of war or use of force. For an explanation, see the DOD Law of War Manual (emphasis added):

16.3.2. Peacetime Intelligence and Counterintelligence Activities. International law and long-standing international norms are applicable to State behavior in cyberspace, and the question of the legality of peacetime intelligence and counterintelligence activities must be considered on a case-by-case basis. Generally, to the extent that cyber operations resemble traditional intelligence and counter-intelligence activities, such as unauthorized intrusions into computer networks solely to acquire information, then such cyber operations would likely be treated similarly under international law. The United States conducts such activities via cyberspace, and such operations are governed by long-standing and well-established considerations, including the possibility that those operations could be interpreted as a hostile act. (footnotes omitted, emphasis added)

This section shows two reasons that make a full-throated US denunciation of the hacks difficult.

First, the OPM hacks were “unauthorized intrusions into computer networks solely to acquire information,” as opposed to causing system disruption or physical destruction. Per the Law of War Manual, they are equivalent to non-cyber intelligence activities under international law. What the Manual implies, but does not explicitly state, is that international law traditionally doesn’t prohibit espionage. (For background, see these articles by William Banks and Ashley Deeks.)

Second, and perhaps more importantly, the Manual acknowledges that the United States “conducts such activities [i.e., espionage] via cyberspace.” The United States regularly denounces China for engaging in commercial espionage, such as theft of intellectual property for the benefit of Chinese companies. But the OPM hack is government-on-government espionage, not commercial espionage. As Jack Goldsmith noted, “this is almost certainly the type of collection we are trying to do, and probably succeeding in doing, against China’s government officials,” and “[w]e can hardly go ballistic if we are doing the same thing.”

There is an irony here: because of the administration’s policy in favor of transparency and attempting to protect individuals’ whose information was compromised in the hacks, the US government is in the position of announcing foreign intelligence agencies’ successes, at least when they compromise individuals’ personal information. Foreign countries are not so forthcoming if or when the United States achieves similar intelligence wins. And of course the announcement of breaches also telegraphs to US adversaries what the United States does and does not know about ongoing vulnerabilities in and breaches of its systems.

Despite the debate over exactly how bad the OPM hacks are for national security, there is no doubt that they are a blow, the magnitude of which will become clearer over time. Where any US claim to the legal or moral high ground would be shaky at best, we should assume that spies are going to spy and act accordingly. This means that the government must better secure its sensitive information going forward and take steps to protect the individuals already put at risk. Beyond such responses, allusions to 9/11 and Pearl Harbor are misplaced and tend to frame these hacks in terms countenanced neither by realism in international relations nor by the rules of international law. [That emphasis by Ed. ]

In the continuing saga of the IRS, the Department of Justice, and their efforts to hide evidence and obstruct justice to protect Lois Lerner and the administration’s targeting of its political opposition, the IRS now claims that thousands of emails found on backup tapes Commissioner Koskinen told Congress did not exist are not IRS records, the IRS has no control over them, and they can’t produce them. In fact, the IRS won’t even say whether it has the thousands of additional “lost” emails. And down the rabbit hole we head—where “up means down” and “stop means go.”

Knowledge of Ms. Lerner’s abuse of power within the IRS to target conservative groups for harassment and denials of tax-exempt status surfaced more than two years ago, along with apparent links to the White House. Congress has been investigating, but the IRS has repeatedly lied and stonewalled. The Treasury Inspector General issued a report, acknowledging the abuse and improprieties and is now in the midst of a criminal investigation. The Department of Justice has done nothing.

Well, would you look at this? One of my online sensei’s in search of peace alerts me to the existence of Training Across Borders, founded by a fellow prominently featured in my je ne sais quoi online virtual symposium as well as inside my e-book on how to use your mind.

“To replace barriers built by years of fear, hatred, and disappointment with foundations for peace, trust, and friendship” is the purpose and the tool is the discipline, or way, of peace and harmony of spirit.

Richard Strozzi-Heckler has a short video at the second link in this small paragraph that speaks to the transformation of individuals and communities. I first encountered this sensei of my bookshelves when I crossed the threshold into a Borders store and serendipitously found its last copy of the first edition of his famous book “In Search of The Warrior Discipline: Teaching Awareness Disciplines to the Green Berets”.

I wonder how many of the warriors training now in Jade Helm are even aware of this book, this man, his body of work (pardon the pun). That he is recognized as one of the top executive coaches in the world hasn’t apparently yet gotten all the way through to the heart. mind and soul of the militarists.

Death toll in Nepal quake rises to more than 3,200 | 26 April 2015 | The death toll from Nepal’s earthquake rose to 3,218 on Monday, two days after the massive quake ripped across this Himalayan nation, leaving tens of thousands shell-shocked and sleeping in streets. Aid groups received the first word from remote mountain villages — reports that suggested many communities perched on mountainsides were devastated or struggling to cope. Landslides hindered rescue teams that tried to use mountain trails to reach those in need, said Prakash Subedi, chief district official in the Gorkha region, where the quake was centered.

Top Jewish leader claims entire Western world culpable for “Holocaust”

Ronald Lauder, the President of the World Jewish Congress and a key figure involved in the privatization scheme to transfer the WTC complex to Jewish billionaire Larry Silverstein prior to 9/11, recently declared that the world is “descending into the same, dangerous hell where we found ourselves before,” referring of course to the alleged “persecution of the Jews” and the fake Jewish “Holocaust” narrative during WWII.

After essentially stating that the Jews are on the brink of another “Holocaust,” Lauder went on to claim that every single European country, along with the United States, were complicit in the alleged “genocide of the Jews” at the hands of Adolf Hitler and National Socialist Germany. The Algemeiner reports:

One of the world’s most prominent Jewish leaders warned on Sunday that just 70 years after the Holocaust, the world is “descending into the same, dangerous hell where we found ourselves before.”

Speaking at the 70th anniversary ceremony for the liberation of Bergen-Belsen at the Bergen-Belsen Memorial, Anne-Frank-Platz, Lohheide, Germany, World Jewish Congress (WJC) President Ronald S. Lauder praised Jewish resilience following the slaughter of six million Jews at the hands of the Nazis and their collaborators.

“From the ashes of this terrible place, the Jewish people rose up and moved on,” he said. “But tragically,” he warned, “seventy years later, the world is not moving on; it is moving backward.”

“Today, seventy years after this camp was liberated, we hear the same antisemitic lies. Today, a Jewish boy wearing a yarmulke cannot walk down the street in Paris or London or Copenhagen without fearing for his life,” Lauder said further. “Right wing neo-Nazi groups are winning seats in Parliament in Hungary and Greece. Iranian leaders repeatedly promise to wipe Israel from the pages of time.” […]

The WJC chief said that there were few countries that didn’t bear some culpability for the crime of the Holocaust and even singled out the United States for shutting its doors “to Jews desperately trying to leave.”

“We know the perpetrators – but they were not just Germans and Austrians. There was complicity in practically every country in Europe,” he said.

Lauder also praised Jewish contributions to society and chided antisemites for their destructive impact.

“The fact is, wherever Jews are allowed to live freely, those countries prosper,” he said. “Jews win Nobel prizes. Jews cure diseases. Jews build. They don’t tear down! Anti-Semites tear down. Anti-Semites destroy. They create nothing. They save no one.” […]

There are several points worth making regarding Lauder’s statements.

First, once again, we have a major Jewish leader representing the organized international Jewish community openly claiming that the entire Western world is complicit in the fake Jewish “Holocaust” during WWII. He is basically indicting and condemning all of Western civilization for allegedly not doing enough for the Jews prior to and during WWII, when in reality the war waged against Germany and her allies by the British, Americans, and Soviets was fought at the behest of and for organized Jewry’s benefit. It was a Jewish instigated, fratricidal war against the one nation – National Socialist Germany – that was openly defying and exposing Jewish internationalism, communism, and plutocracy pushing for a “New World Order” on every front imaginable.

Lauder echoed the sentiments of Ian Kagedan, former National Director of Government Relations of B’nai Brith Canada, who wrote in a 1991 Toronto Star op-ed piece titled “Memory of the Holocaust Central to New World Order”:

The Holocaust stands as Western Civilization’s greatest failure. It was a natural outcome of centuries of racism and of anti-Semitism. To deny the Holocaust is to deny racism’s capacity to undercut our civilization’s basic values and to destroy democracy. Achieving our quest of a “new world order” depends on our learning the Holocaust’s lessons.

Secondly, as I’ve noted before and as Kagedan’s quote above just demonstrated, the fake “Holocaust” narrative of WWII is the linchpin of the entire “New World Order” agenda, which in reality is simply a Jewish plot to enslave the entire world politically, economically, and culturally, destroying all genuine national and racial distinctions in the process.

The “lessons of the Holocaust,” which include “tolerance,” “diversity,” “anti-racism,” and multiculturalism, are specifically designed to erode, delegitimize, and ultimately destroy White racial identity, justify multiculturalism and massive non-White immigration into the West, and end all criticism of Jews and the Jewish state (i.e., “anti-Semitism”), equating such criticism with “hate speech.”

Finally, I think what terrifies the organized Jewish community most of all about Adolf Hitler and National Socialist Germany was not the alleged “death camps” or purported plans to “genocide the Jews,” standard claims made by the “Holocaust” industry which are entirely false.

What the the organized Jewish community fears most of all about Hitler was the fact that he accurately, articulately, and boldly exposed the Jews and their destructive, parasitic, and subversive nature. Hitler’s Germany made “anti-Semitism” (i.e., basic truths about Jews and their agenda) mainstream in Germany – everyone was expected to understand the Jewish problem, and most did.

More than anything else, organized Jewry fear the masses waking up to and clearly recognizing the truth about the Jews, their crimes, their insidious power and influence in the West, and their subversive, destructive overall agenda.

: FUKUSHIMA RADIATION REPORT, April 25, 2014 http://youtu.be/FHvb2w2Ozbc WIPP report and Fukushima

Radioactive decay is the disintegration of an unstable atom with an accompanying emission of radiation. As a radioisotope atom decays to a more stable atom, it emits radiation only once. To change from an unstable atom to a completely stable atom may require several disintegration steps and radiation will be given off at each step. However, once the atom reaches a stable configuration, no more radiation is given off. For this reason, radioactive sources become weaker with time. As more and more unstable atoms become stable atoms, less radiation is produced and eventually the material will become non-radioactive.

The decay of radioactive elements occurs at a fixed rate. The half-life of a radioisotope is the time required for one half of the amount of unstable material to degrade into a more stable material. For example, a source will have an intensity of 100% when new. At one half-life, its intensity will be cut to 50% of the original intensity. At two half-lives, it will have an intensity of 25% of a new source. After ten half-lives, less than one-thousandth of the original activity will remain. Although the half-life pattern is the same for every radioisotope, the length of a half-life is different. For example, Co-60 has a half-life of about 5 years while Ir-192 has a half-life of about 74 days. http://www.ndt-ed.org/EducationResour…

This observer of the system and the process can’t help but wonder about the differences in the justice/legal system that, on one hand, has the Boston Marathon bombing trial just now entering the penalty phase, conviction having been obtained, and the Aurora theater trial just now only beginning, though that event happened nine months earlier. Why the rush and the delay?

Cecily Strong Takes on Police Brutality at White House Correspondents’ Dinner | 26 April 2015 | Saturday Night Live cast member and Chicago native Cecily Strong told some pretty brutal jokes at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner Saturday night. One observation, however, about the extrajudicial killing of black men in the United States seemingly pushed the boundaries and buttons of many of those in attendance. Strong played off a string of Secret Service lapses. “Let’s give it up for the Secret Service. I don’t want to be too hard on those guys. You know, because they’re the only law enforcement agency in the country that will get in trouble if a black man gets shot.” There was a smattering of awkward chuckles, loud groans and a few boos, to which Strong responded, “Are you saying ‘boo’ or are you saying ‘true?'”

U.S. Troops in Ukraine

April 26th, 2015 by Kevin

Via: Reuters:

As the crisis in Ukraine drags on, U.S.-Russia relations continue to deteriorate. The United States has just taken a step that risks bringing that relationship to a new low.

As part of its effort to support Ukraine, the U.S. military recently sent 290 troops from the 173rd Airborne Brigade based in Vicenza, Italy, to train the Ukrainian National Guard.

Posted in Dictatorship, War

[&&]{**}[##]

SOURCE: ALL GOV.

The reach of the U.S. military is virtually endless, with nearly every nation on earth having some kind of American armed forces presence. The commander of the U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) has said that in 80 of those countries there are now Special Forces troops.

The U.S. Special Forces are a kind of army within an army. There are about 69,000 sailors, soldiers, airmen and Marines in the Special Operations Forces (SOF), which operate as part of USSOCOM under Army General Joseph Votel.

Votel testified (pdf) to the House Armed Services Committee Subcommittee on Emerging Threats and Capabilities last month, outlining the mission and capabilities of USSOCOM. Votel described the reach of SOF troops, pointing out that in 80 countries around the world, about 3,500 are stationed in “forward” positions and 7,000 in support of Geographic Combatant Command operations. Missions, he said, include working with governments to improve local security to “high-risk counterterrorism operations.”

U.S. Special Forces are stretched thin, Votel said, with most having done between four and 10 deployments, and often less than a year off between overseas tours. “SOF and their families have been under unprecedented levels of stress; it is imperative to address the effects of more than 13 years of combat operations,” Votel testified.

One reason U.S. Special Forces are stationed in so many places might be that other countries don’t have equivalent troops they can deploy. In an op-ed written for CNN, Meaghan Keeler-Pettigrew and Stuart Bradin of the Global Special Operations Forces Foundation argued that more of our foreign military spending ($5.65 billion in 2015), the bulk of which goes now to Israel and Egypt, should instead be used to bolster other countries’ own special forces.

Keeler-Pettigrew and Bradin pointed out recent terrorist attacks in Kenya and the threat posed in Nigeria by Boko Haram. Those countries get no more than $1.2 million and $600,000 respectively in U.S. military aid. Increased funding directed to counter-terrorist forces in those countries and others could lessen the need to U.S. forces to be sprinkled so liberally around the world.

Mindfulness Therapy as Good as Medication for Chronic Depression

April 26th, 2015 by Kevin

Via: Reuters:

Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) may be just as effective as anti-depressants in helping prevent people with chronic depression from relapsing, scientists said on Tuesday.

Depression is one of the most common forms of mental illness, affecting more than 350 million people worldwide. It is ranked by the World Health Organization as the leading cause of disability globally.

Treatment usually involves either medication, some form of psychotherapy or a combination of both. Yet many patients fail to get better and suffer recurring bouts of illness.

MBCT was developed to help such people by teaching them skills to recognize and respond constructively to thoughts and feelings associated with relapse, aiming to prevent a downward spiral into depression.

In the first large study to compare MBCT and anti-depressants, researchers found little difference in outcomes.

U.S. Marines conduct ‘Vigilant Response’ full-scale pandemic outbreak drill 8 Oct 2014 Marine Corps Air Station New River on Wednesday held a full-scale pandemic outbreak drill where health officials and Marines responded to a smallpox outbreak that “occurred” aboard the installation. According to Lt. Cmdr. Joseph Kotora, the public health emergency officer for Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune, the Exercise Vigilant Response drill was the first of its kind at a military installation in North Carolina. “A drill this size has never been conducted, so this is the largest pandemic exercise to my knowledge,” said Kotora. Officials decided to incorporate administering inoculations during the exercise so that it would more accurately portray an outbreak situation where medical personnel would be required to screen and administer vaccinations.

Now, CDC officials are trying to track down all 132 passengers who were aboard Frontier Airlines Flight 1143 on Monday with Ms Vinson over fears they could all have been exposed to the virus. Ms Vinson traveled home to Ohio to plan her wedding and visit her mother last Friday, despite being one of the 76 medical workers from Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital under observation by the Centers for Disease Control.

“… the German National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina, acatech – the German Academy of Science and Engineering, and the Union of the German Academies of Sciences and Humanities have presented a statement on the Ebola epidemic today.

In the statement the academies call for the following consequences to be taken: To combat the Ebola epidemic vaccines and antivirals are urgently needed. To meet this need, the further development of experimental vaccines and medicines for clinical application needs to be accelerated. Even if the pathogen should temporarily disappear again, research must continue as a precautionary measure because another outbreak is highly probable.

Such precautionary measures must also include ensuring that sufficient quantities of available vaccines and antivirals are stockpiled in case of a new outbreak. Increasing medical and social science research in this area is also vitally important for future preparedness…..”

“… Ebola represents a significant security issue. As the disease spreads, so does panic—and panic leads to violence. CFR’s own Laurie Garrett observes,

Lawlessness will rise as Ebola claims the lives of police and law enforcement personnel, and terrified cops quit their jobs.

As health workers die or quit—or as people stay away from hospitals for fear of contracting Ebola—they will begin to die of other, normally treatable health problems. According to Garrett, “Women will die in delivery, auto accident victims will bleed out for lack of emergency care, old vaccine-preventable epidemics will resurge as health workers fear administering them to potentially Ebola-carrying children, and child malnutrition will set in.

Thus, as governments fail to cope with the outbreak and associated panic, the epidemic’s spillover effects will serve to cripple government infrastructure and societal structures, creating major security issues. This spiral into chaos, in turn, will only accelerate the spread of the virus and confound efforts to control it.

Smaller steps early on could have nipped this epidemic in the bud.  But we are well past that now. Only the military—indeed, only the United States military with its vast organizational and command and control capabilities—can do what is needed to coordinate multi-national efforts and contain this virus.  As with warfare, it is all about logistics and leadership.Here is what the U.S. military brings to the fight against Ebola:

•  Leadership and coordination: The United States is deploying half of the headquarters element of the 101st Airborne Division to coordinate multi-national and interagency efforts between several actors: the Liberian government, USAID, UN aid workers, and the United States’ own forces. This is a complex organizational challenge for which the U.S. military is uniquely qualified.

• Treatment centers and mobile labs: Military engineers and support contractors will construct seventeen pre-fabricated treatment centers to help isolate and treat the sick. Mobile labs will allow health workers to identify and separate Ebola patients from others

• Transportation: As commercial airlines show increasing reluctance to fly between affected countries, military transport will be needed to maintain the flow of medical workers and supplies. This includes critical aid like hygiene kits and protective gear

• Training: Military medical personnel will be able to train 500 local health workers and volunteers a week in basic self-protection procedures to control infection. This empowerment of local workers will be the key to stopping this epidemic while also limiting the direct exposure of U.S. troops.

“… today I am on the road and watched CNN from a restaurant. I did not have sound, but I did see captions.

CNN’s headline story was ridiculous. CNN placed the blame for the intraday DOW plunge of 460 point on ebola.

There was no mention of the 21-Point Plunge in Empire State manufacturing Index. Nor was there any mention of weak consumer spending.

What about PEs in the stratosphere? No mention of course. (For discussion, please see Stock Buybacks Peaked With Stock Market in 2007: History About to Repeat?)

Instead, CNN assumed the DOW plunge was based on ebola.

Obama’s Lame Response

Fear is in the air, and it’s easy to assign blame. A few simple questions will help explain.

1Is there a chance of spreading the disease by coughing or sneezing? Yes.

2Would I want to sit on a plane next to someone who was in contact with an ebola patient? No, and neither would anyone else.

3Would I want to sit on a plane next to someone from a country where ebola is viral? No, and neither would anyone else.

To stop the spread of the disease and the accompanying panic, I have a fourth question:

Why isn’t there a flight ban on those from Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone (and every other country where there is a major outbreak)?

Instead, we take temperatures even though the incubation period is as long as three weeks.

I’ve left out the nonsense of James Wesley, Rawles’ “final warning”, the re-discovered Firesign Theatre “Beat The Reaper” gameshow, any references to Stephen Kings’ “The Stand”, several regurgitant pieces covering the past and the obvious, some chest-pounding by folks who erase my comments, and updates on the cleveland-two-schools-shut developments [hey, they close schools when kindergartners make pretend finger pistols and yell at their friends “pew, pew”].

“… On June 28, 2012, Attorney General Eric Holder was held in contempt of Congress for refusing to turn over Fast and Furious documents. It was the first time an Attorney General was held in contempt. President Obama then exerted executive privilege for the first and only time of his administration to keep the documents secret.

Judicial Watch sued the Justice Department over the withheld documents and a federal judge has ruled that the government must turn over some information by October 22.

Shortly after that ruling, Attorney General Holder announced plans to retire but did not provide a reason for the timing of his announcement.”

“… In the closing credits of Citizenfour, Poitras took the unusual step of adding an acknowledgment of the free software projects that made the film possible: The roll call includes the anonymity software Tor, the Tor-based operating system Tails, GPG encryption, Off-The-Record (OTR) encrypted instant messaging, hard disk encryption software Truecrypt, and Linux. All of that describes a technical setup that goes well beyond the precautions taken by most national security reporters, not to mention documentary filmmakers…. Poitras argues that Snowden’s ability to stay out of the agency’s grasp shows the power of cryptography. She quotes the cypherpunk mantra that cryptography levels the playing field between the individual and the government; it represents a math problem that no amount of authoritarian force can solve. “I do think that so long as we can maintain the ability for crypto not to be backdoored, there’s a way for people to communicate securely,” she says.”

When ash and bone mix with the clay

And choke the fruits of victory

Cry for revenge to ease their pain

Lost in the shadows you’ll never see

[To stop wars of aggression and global theft of resources, monitor elite finishing school socio-behavioral head-masters…]

Via http://www.strike-the-root.com:

HARTFORD — Parents who home-school children with significant emotional, social or behavioral problems would have to file progress reports prepared by special education program teams, under a proposal being considered by the governor’s Sandy Hook Advisory Commission.

Commission members acknowledged Tuesday that the proposal, contained in a tentative section of the panel’s final report, could be controversial and prompt opposition from parents of home-schooled children across the state.

But the commission, which is preparing its final report to Gov. Dannel P. Malloy, said tighter scrutiny of home-schoolers may be needed to prevent an incident such as the December 2012 slaughter of 20 first-graders and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown. The murders were carried out by Adam Lanza, a disturbed 20-year-old who had been home-schooled by his mother, Nancy Lanza, whom he also shot to death on the morning of his murder spree.

The draft proposal was contained in a summary prepared for the 16-member commission of educators, local and state officials and behavioral experts and discussed by University of Connecticut Professor Susan Schmeiser.

Under the proposal, home-schooled children with behavioral and emotional disabilities would have to have individualized education plans approved by the special education director of the local public school district. Allowing for the continued home-schooling of such children would be predicated on the individualized plans and “adequate progress” documented in mandatory annual reports.

“Given the individuals involved in the tragedy that formed the basis of this commission, I think we have thought this issue out at some length and we believe it is very germane and that the actual facts leading up to this incident support the notion of the risk in not addressing social and emotional learning needs of children who may have significant needs in that area who are home-schooled,” said commissioner member Dr. Harold I. Schwartz, psychiatrist-in-chief at Hartford Hospital‘s Institute of Living.

As many as 5,000 children or more are home-schooled in the state. Their parents may voluntarily take advantage of school-based programs, including diagnosis and services, but they are not required to.

“Parents may want to get their back up and say, `You can’t make me do that if I am home-schooling,’ ” said Patricia Keavney-Maruco, a commission member who is on the state Board of Education.

http://www.ctpost.com/local/article/Commission-evaluate-some-home-schooled-kids-for-5775275.php 

“…. This is especially relevant since anti-homeschooling forces have spread the notion that the practice stunts emotional, social, and behavioral development. For example, as Michael F. Haverluck reported at CBN News in 2007, “92 percent of [school] superintendents believe that home learners are emotionally unstable, deprived of proper social development and too judgmental of the world around them, according to a California study by researcher Dr. Brian Ray.”

The above statistic relates to another reason many are concerned about the proposal: Government educators have a vested interest in eliminating homeschooling. Every child taught at home means one less student who can be indoctrinated by schools — and means less funding for them.

Observers also point out that not only is placing an onus on homeschoolers based on one anecdote unfair, but Lanza attended government school for the first 10 years of his life; moreover, there are more anecdotes indicating that SHAC’s proposed cure is worse than (or may actually be) the disease. As Kyle Olson writes at Education Action Group News:

[I]f the act of homeschooling and the perceived lack of governmental oversight is to blame, how does Sandy Hook Advisory Panel explain away these public school students:

• On March 21, 2005, Red Lake Senior High School student Jeffrey Weise killed five students, one teacher, one security guard, and then committed suicide.

• On April 20, 1999, Columbine High School students Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold killed 12 students and one teacher, and wounded 21 others before committing suicide.

• On March 5, 2001, student Charles Andrew Williams killed two students and wounding 13 others at Santana High School in California.

  • On February 27, 2012, TJ Lane walked into the Chardon High School cafeteria and fired into a group of students sitting at a lunch table. Three students died in the attack. His “emotional disability” was such that he wore a t-shirt with “Killer” scrawled on it to his sentencing.

The examples go on and they all point back to a failed government bureaucracy that apparently didn’t adequately address the “behavioral and emotional disabilities” of the students in its care…..”

http://www.thenewamerican.com/culture/education/item/19201-government-plan-to-stop-school-shootings-monitor-homeschoolers 

 

As the commenter notes:

“Stop liquor store robberies. Monitor people who attend AA meetings.

Stop book store hold ups. Monitor people who purchase books online.

Stop gas station robberies. Monitor people who use mass transit…..”

Tinkering with Brain’s Decision Circuits Makes Rats Go Random

September 27th, 2014 by Kevin

Via: Los Angeles Times:

“Our brains have evolved to be strategic, so we have evolved to use our past experience to optimize future choice,” said lead investigator Alla Y. Karpova, a neuroscientist at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute’s Janelia Research Campus in Virginia.

“Against weak competitors, a strategic approach is probably useful, because if you figure out the approach of the opponent, you can actually do better than when you’re just random. You can even out-compete them,” Karpova said.

But random exploration may be more appropriate to a new situation full of mixed signals, where experience offers no guide. Some part of the brain has to decide how to decide.

Researchers set out to find how and where such choices are made. They created three computer opponents with increasingly tough strategies to punish patterns in how rats sought selected holes to poke their noses in, looking for food. One was a bit lenient; the second, a bit less forgiving; and the third, strict — it was programmed to learn from the rat and thwart its strategy.

“When animals initially played against the weak competitors, they appeared to maintain a strategic approach, just like people have observed before with primates,” Karpova said. “But when we put them up against a very sophisticated competitor … the animals switched to the random mode.”

And they got stuck there, for hundreds of trials.

Researchers weren’t done. They created a new brain-buster. It gave higher rewards for a certain pattern of pokes (such as right-right-left) but also mild reward rates (16%) for non-patterned responses.

The “strategic” rodents that had played against competitors one and two beat the odds at the hidden pattern task. Their reward rates, about 20%, indicated that sticking to strategic thinking helped them uncover the hidden pattern. Those that had first played the sternest computer taskmaster earned just a 14.5% reward rate, below even the random rate.

“They were completely blind to the sudden availability of a simple strategy that would be beneficial,” Karpova said. “They got stuck in this random mode.”

Jerome Corsi at World News Daily has an article recounting how, 50 years later, Cyril Wecht says oswald-dismissed-as-lone-gunman-in-jfk-killing. Without pausing to reflect on the author or the web site, suspect in some eyes, I can only say “No shit, Dick Tracy”.

The conference commemorating the 50th anniversary of the publication of the Warren Commission Report strikes me as being very similar to those gatherings of robotic design teams that show off how much improvement there has been in the ability of these little machines to nudge a ball down a “playing field” and which generally results in the little beasties trapping themselves in a corner until the man outside the machinery picks them up and sets them free.

How much new information has emerged from these robots?  How much closer is the world to a “perp walk”? What might have been enabled if these minds had been devoted to something else?

One topic in one of the dark corners of this massive exercise in detective work is surely devoted to the role (or absence) of the Secret Service. Just days ago, some veteran with PTSD ran across the lawn of the White House and walked into the building carrying a serrated small blade and leaving behind a cache of weapons. Or so we are told.

But we have long been at the place where we must either commit to doing something about “it”, or we must let it go and focus on our own well-being, creativity and our ability to engage one another in fostering the kind of world in which these kinds of things are prevented or, when they occur, are prosecuted.

September 3-4, 2014 — Beheading videos, SITE, and journalist “freedom fighters”

For the second time in a little over two weeks, a video of the beheading by a British-accented Islamic State jihadist of a U.S. journalist captured in Syria was distributed by the same organization. The most recent video images of orange jump suit-clad U.S. journalist Steven Sotloff being beheaded were released by the Search for International Terrorist Entities or “SITE,” which also initially discovered and released the video beheading of U.S. journalist James Foley of GlobalPost.com.

As with the Foley video, U.S. intelligence initially refrained from validating the authenticity of the Sotloff video until it completed an examination of the Sotloff video. Obviously, the CIA and other U.S. intelligence agencies are well-versed on SITE’s Israeli pedigree. As previously revealed by WMR, SITE is a Washington, DC-based research institute with links to Israeli right-wing Likud elements and Mossad. SITE is operated by Israeli intelligence asset Rita Katz and was also the source for a number of dubious videos of Osama Bin Laden, including one that only showed the Al Qaeda’s lips moving but the rest of his body inanimate. In 2008, SITE released a video purportedly of Al Qaeda’s number two, Ayman al Zawahiri. A number of experts determined the video was a fake.

WMR reported on September 9, 2007 that Katz is “an Iraq-born Jew who moved to Israel after her father was executed by Saddam Hussein’s government for spying for the Mossad. She emigrated to the United States from Israel in 1997. Katz worked for the U.S. Treasury Department in its pursuit of Muslim charity funds in the United States in Operation Green Quest and as a consultant for the FBI. The main coordinator for Green Quest was the then-head of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, Michael Chertoff.”

In addition, WMR reported: “Katz once served as Research Director of the Investigative Project, another neocon outfit run by noted Arab and Muslim demonizer Steven Emerson, who was one of the first past the post to blame the 1995 Murrah Federal Building bombing on Arab terrorists.”

Our report from 2007 continued: “[The latest 30-minute Bin Laden video]  was obtained by the SITE Institute, a Washington-based group that monitors terrorist messages, and provided to the Associated Press.”

The Israeli Foreign Ministry revealed that Sotloff was an Israeli citizen after his death. Moreover, Israel admitted going to great lengths to remove from the Internet any references to Sotloff’s Israeli citizenship. However, after Sotloff’s death was confirmed, an Israeli Foreign Ministry official sent out the following Twitter message: “Cleared for publication: Steven Sotloff was Israel citizen RIP.” The Jerusalem Post reported that Sotloff worked for the Temple Beth Am in Florida. The synagogue is a Reformed Judaism day school in Pinecrest, south Miami-Dade County. Sotloff also worked for the Jerusalem Report, a publication of the pro-Netanyahu government Jerusalem Post, and which was formerly owned by arch-neocon Conrad Black’s Hollinger Corporation and funded by multi-billionaire Zionism supporter Charles Bronfman. Sotloff also worked for Media Line and briefly lived in Israel in 2008. While there, Sotloff studied international relations at the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzilya.

Herzilya is also the headquarters of Israel’s Mossad. Media Line is a non-profit Israeli news website whose advisory board members include Marvin Kalb, formerly of CBS News; PBS’s Judy Woodruff; Dean Patrick, former newsman for Pat Robertson’s Christian Broadcasting Network and current Regent University Dean of the School of Communications; former CBS News reporter Murray Fromson; and Columbia Journalism School professor Ari Goldman.

Questions still surround what Foley and Sotloff were actually doing in Syria. Moreover, Foley had been embedded with jihadist guerrillas fighting against Muammar Qaddafi’s government in Libya prior to his embedded status with Syrian Jabhat al Nusra-linked Islamist guerrillas fighting against Bashar Assad’s government in Syria. In both cases, the CIA was training, arming, and funding the Libyan and Syrian guerrilla forces. Sotloff also was embedded with CIA-supported Islamist guerrillas in Libya and Syria. He also reported as a freelancer from Yemen and Egypt. Foley was embedded with U.S. military units in Afghanistan and Iraq. A photograph of Sotloff shows him embedded with Libyan Islamist fighters at the Al Dafniya front line on June 2, 2011. Getty Images copyright restrictions prevent WMR from including the photograph.

Concerns previously raised by WMR about the CIA’s renewed use of journalists as spies were not assuaged after an American “film maker” friend of Foley and Sotloff appeared on various news programs to eulogize Foley and Sotloff after their beheading. The film maker, Matthew VanDyke told Al Jazeera on September 2 that he fought on the side of the Libyan rebels against Qaddafi as an armed combatant and was taken prisoner and held by the Libyan government forces for six months, as was Foley, before being released and given a one-year suspended sentence for illegally entering Libya. In VanDyke’s case, he used his claim of being a journalist to enter Libya to fight as a combatant for the anti-Qaddafi guerrillas. It is exactly the type of situation, which puts every foreign correspondent in danger, that led to the CIA’s ban on the use of journalists as spies. VanDyke also visited Iraq where he was reportedly “helping Christians,” as was the U.S. military and CIA, against the Islamic State. VanDyke is said to be a resident of Baltimore and a native of Fenwick Island, Delaware. VanDyke describes himself not only as a “film maker” but also a “revolutionary.”

According to Syrian State Television, VanDyke also fought with Free Syrian Army, which included the Jabhat al Nusra guerrillas affiliated with Al Qaeda. Most Jabhat al Nusra forces have now sworn allegiance to the Islamic State. Syrian TV described VanDyke as a terrorist who was fighting the Syrian government on behalf of the jihadist forces. VanDyke was, according to Syrian state TV, fighting alongside Islamist guerrillas in Aleppo. VanDyke calls himself an “Arab Spring freedom fighter” on his personal website. In August 2012, VanDyke announced he was going to join the Syrian uprising against Assad and “capture it all on film.” After VanDyke began raising thousands of dollars on the Kickstarter on-line donation website, the company kicked him off. There were reports at the time that Kickstarter was being used by anti-Assad Syrian terrorist groups to also raise funds. Syrian state TV apparently nailed VanDyke in its description.

http://i.huffpost.com/gen/1005652/thumbs/o-MATTHEW-VANDYKE-SYRIA-facebook.jpg

Matthew VanDyke’s [above] association with Foley and Sotloff in Libya and Syria tarnishes the “journalism” credentials of both executed Americans.

More noteworthy is VanDyke’s Master’s degree in Security Studies from Georgetown University’s Walsh School of Foreign Service. Georgetown is and always has been a prime recruiting center for the CIA. VanDyke, like Foley, was embedded with U.S. military forces in Afghanistan and Iraq. Unusually, he traveled by motorcycle through Morocco, Mauritania, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Iraq (where he lived from 2008 to 2009), Iran, and Afghanistan, countries not normally associated with motorcycle treks.

VanDyke has laughingly been described as a modern-day Che Guevara or a member of Spain’s anti-fascist International Brigade. However, neither Guevara nor any self-respecting member of the International Brigade would ever have fought for CIA-sponsored guerrillas. In fact, VanDyke more resembles an off-beat Blackwater mercenary or a CIA provocateur like David Atlee Phillips or Frank Carlucci.

VanDyke’s friendship with Foley and Sotloff on U.S.-sponsored battlefields embedded with CIA-enabled Islamist guerrilla groups raises the specter that one or more of these so-called “journalists” were performing missions not in keeping with the Journalist’s Creed, particularly the following proviso:

“I believe that bribery by one’s own pocketbook is as much to be avoided as bribery by the pocketbook of another; that individual responsibility may not be escaped by pleading another’s instructions or another’s dividends.”

VanDyke has been honored with all sorts of journalist awards, many from “concern” groups funded by global hedge fund tycoon and troublemaker George Soros. However, there is but one problem with giving awards for journalism to someone like VanDyke. He’s not a journalist. At worst, he is a CIA operative using journalist credentials for covert purposes. At best, he is an agent provocateur who has put every legitimate journalist in the gravest of danger. As the case may be with VanDyke’s friends Foley and Sotloff, such provocation of using journalists as U.S. intelligence agents likely cost both of them their lives.

THE CIA’S MOP-UP MAN: L.A. TIMES REPORTER CLEARED STORIES WITH AGENCY BEFORE PUBLICATION

A prominent national security reporter for the Los Angeles Times routinely submitted drafts and detailed summaries of his stories to CIA press handlers prior to publication, according to documents obtained by The Intercept.

[Though important to note, the fact that there are and have been closely-interactive connections between news outlets and Langley has been widely known for a very long time. References are numerous. My own personal reference was the day I spent with the production crew of ABC Evening News (Av Richter, Harry Reasoner et alia) in March ’73. The memory is linked to a 1970 fire -engine red Mustang Mach One with a 351-c.i. Cleveland engine that I drove at very high speed to downtown Manhattan as the sun came up with an 8-track stereo bolted to the driver’s right-side armrest/console playing this. ]

Russia Negotiates Ceasefire In Ukraine: NATO Responds With Troops, Warships, and Sanctions

“There are a lot of ways we could do this, from community kitchens where families work together to arranging to-go meals from schools. There is no one answer. But we hope this work inspires people to start thinking outside the family kitchen about broader things we as a society can do when it comes to food and health. [emphasis added]

It appears that the family has ultimately played the smallest role in this research….

There are enough problems facing quality in the food system as it is. And yes, there are people who do and have in the past, gotten together to help with food prep – as a choice. But the crux of the food problem is the economy. Without good jobs for a long time (thanks “free trade,” thanks Wall St), access to healthy foods and the time to prepare them is shredded, making it that much harder to withstand the face of food monopolies. Latchkey graduates know the cycle well.

So, the answer to a race to the bottom is to be herded together into state-sponsored kitchen gatherings where we all labor together for all? With our new communal family? With what food? How is that different than standing for hours in food lines? What comes next?

Hefty grants provided to research like the above, while maybe are good for a reality check, are a thinly veiled attempt to influence Americans to keep their place, eschew their families for the societal family and get used to austerity.

Maybe it’s time to stop thinking in terms of tightening our belts, but taking them off.

Nevada, Tesla Announce Gigafactory Deal

September 4th, 2014

Via: USA Today:

Tesla Motors and Nevada made it official on Thursday evening: the electric car company’s highly sought battery “Gigafactory” and its projected 6,500 jobs are coming to the Reno area.

Mutual congratulations between the electric-car maker and Silver State officials aside, the news of the announcement event in Carson City was the huge incentives the state will have to contribute to seal its end of the proposed deal: a package estimated to be worth $1.25 billion over 20 years.

RIANOSTI http://en.ria.ru exploded almost overnight with a batch of fresh new articles on NATO’s Anders Fogh Rasmussen’s belief that tougher and broader sanctions are “the ticket”, Francois Millande’s hope for a ceasefire so his country can 1) keep it’s shipbuilding industry alive and get paid for delivery of two two-helicopter mini-aircraft carriers that have suddenly earned themselves an AWOL unit citation ribbon for the next armed conflict; 2) its article on helicopter-type UAV’s as unmanned flying radar;; and 3) the mostly-unsubtle-but-very-Russian-humor infographic on The-History-of-the-Atomic-Bomb-Project.

pravda.ru also blossomed with articles on “The Putin Plan”, and the “mysterious sleeping sickness” that is terrifying the village of Kalachi in the Akmolinshy region of Kazakhstan. “Drowsiness, memory loss and hallucinations” were diagnosed [as] “encephalopathy of unknown etiology.”

Also from Pravda is its report on the death of Andrei Stenin making me wonder openly if it would be considered internationally impolite to ask whether Andrei was also connected to an intelligence agency. [These days, everyone is on their own, and they’d better have an intelligence agency tucked under the hair and between the ears while they maintain a safe haven for it.]

And above the “fold” (an advertisement for DirectTV on my screen) is the article “Russians Become Jews For New EuroReich” which is sure to rattle some door-handles and ring a few smart phones for days.

In the US, we say things “go viral”.

In some cultures, people talk about things going “rhizomatic”, growing underground like grass. גדל כמו וירוס AIPAC and ADL and the world-wide Zionist community will be taking notes. I park my nuke down in the basement next to the furnace and the water heater. 

“They can be wiped off the face of Earth by any type of Nazis, they can be exterminated with the use of banned weapons and deprived of all rights that the “Aryans” are allowed to have under all international conventions …

Those, who want to prevent this from happening, will be subject to sanctions. Can’t do more because of nuclear weapons, you know.”

Verbal insults continue at OnlineReview’s /shadow-nato-comes-out-of-the-closet/ 

“The upcoming NATO summit on 4 September is expected to further institutionalize the bloc’s relationship with Ukraine, and it cannot be precluded that some surprises may also be in store. One such example could be Poroshenko pulling a temporary ploy and disowning Crimea in order to get around NATO’s formal territorial dispute prohibition. Regardless of how it turns out, the fact is that the Kiev coup-plotters have finally played their NATO hand and have shown the world that they are dead-set on joining the military bloc. Poroshenko and Yatsenyuk would do well, however, to second-guess the wisdom of working with Washington and instead heed Putin’s advice, remembering that “whatever Americans touch they always end up with Libya or Iraq.”

Found ‘Reckless’ in Gulf Spill, BP Faces $18 Billion Fine 4 Sep 2014 A federal judge ruled on Thursday that BP was grossly negligent in the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil well blowout that killed 11 workers, spilled millions of barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico and soiled hundreds of miles of beaches. “BP’s conduct was reckless,” United States District Court Judge Carl J. Barbier wrote in his sternly worded decision. Judge Barbier also ruled that Transocean, the owner of the rig, and Halliburton, the service company that cemented the well, were negligent in the accident. But the judge put most of the blame on BP, opening the way to fines of up to $18 billion under the Clean Water Act.

The charges stemmed from granting favors to a wealthy Virginia businessman in exchange for more than $177,000 worth of lavish gifts, vacations, and loans. The pair was acquitted of bank fraud charges.

Clinton Bears Responsibility Over Benghazi Attack, Cheney Says – Businessweek

Two slices of this particular quiche:

Democrats say the attack and the administration’s comments on it have been thoroughly vetted.

“It’s a hunting mission for a lynch mob,” Senator Dianne Feinstein, the California Democrat who is chairman of the chamber’s intelligence committee, said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

“Cheney, who was vice president from 2001 to 2009, also criticized Obama for his handling of the crisis in Ukraine. Obama has “demonstrated repeatedly” that he can “be pushed around” by Russian President Vladimir Putin, Cheney said.

Putin is “taking advantage of this opportunity when he thinks we have a weak president to try to restore some of the old Soviet Union,” Cheney told Fox News.”

The more we learn via Gowdy’s Benghazi investigation – The closer we are to martial law | Intellihub News 

 

“… The real answer to why the Obama Administration is covering this up isn’t just because of the seemingly incompetent reaction to the incident at the time, but because the Administration is trying to keep their acts of treason from going public.

Since Trey Gowdy was appointed to head up an investigation into the Benghazi incident, President Obama has since hired a criminal attorney. This in itself shows us that he knows this is going to be trouble big time.

The Obama Administration couldn’t very well help the Americans under siege in Benghazi because the very terrorist organization, Al Qaeda, responsible for it was at the time being helped by the US in the form of receiving arms, billions of dollars in aid, and actual military help. This had been going on since 2010 and really kicked in 3-19-2011 when US lead NATO forces invaded Libya, helping terrorist factions as Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood oust the Muammar Gaddafi regime.

The entire Arab Spring demonstrations and rise to power of terrorist organizations throughout the Mid-East during this time can be attributed to the US involvement.

The same is happening with the situation in Ukraine presently.

The Obama Administration’s rush to bomb Syria’s Bashar al-Assad Regime in the fall of 2013 was also to help his terrorist friends into power. These are the same terrorist organizations responsible for the deaths of Americans in Benghazi.

The fact that the Obama Administration was helping these terrorist organizations during the time of the Benghazi massacre and because the two Navy SEALs protecting the compound refused to stand down as told by the Administration also answers the question of why the military purge of top brass in 2013. The truth is Obama could not have the people in charge of making decisions at the top-level who were privy to his acts of treason in Benghazi.

The closer to the truth we get via the Gowdy investigations, the closer we get to Martial Law. Benghazi and the Administration’s overall support of terrorist organizations around the world are the reasons for all the Executive Orders giving Obama complete control over all domestic activity. It’s also why such Socialist laws as National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), giving the President complete control of everything, similar to a Dictatorship, was signed into law on 12/26/2013.

The President’s treasonous acts are also the reason we American citizens are the focal point in the NSA and CIA domestic spying over the last few years. We are the threat Obama has to keep an eye on because we, as citizens, will not tolerate having him in office when we know the extent of his involvement in traitorous activity around the world.”

“Ars Technica published an article Friday highlighting the results from research conducted by a money-in-politics watchdog regarding the 28 congressmen who sent a combined total of three letters to the FCC protesting against re-classifying the internet as a public utility. These 28 members of the U.S. House of Representatives ‘received, on average, $26,832 from the “cable & satellite TV production & distribution” sector over a two-year period ending in December. According to the data, that’s 2.3 times more than the House average of $11,651.’ That’s average. Actual amounts that the 28 received over a two year period ranged from $109,250 (Greg Walden, R-OR) to $0 (Nick Rahall, D-WV). Look at the list yourselves, and find your representative to determine how much legitimacy can be attributed to their stated concerns for the public.”

CLAIMS from Malcom Fraser (pictured) that Israel deliberately bombed the USS Liberty in June 1967 is a “mad, demented conspiracy theory”, Australia/Israel & Jewish Affairs Council (AIJAC) national chairman Mark Leibler said this week. The former prime minister made the assertion while promoting his new book Dangerous Allies during an interview with ABC Radio Melbourne broadcaster Jon Faine last Friday, during which he also said former foreign minister Bob Carr was “absolutely correct” in his view that the pro-Israel lobby wielded too much power.

It appears that in their zeal to redact classified PowerPoint slides obtained from National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden, Glenn Greenwald and his collaborators have drawn attention to an act of omission.

When the first tranche of Snowden documents were presented by Greenwald to various newspapers and broadcasters in 2013, the TOP SECRET/SI/ORCON/NOFORN slide on PRISM targeting of various countries included Venezuela, Mexico, and Colombia as target nations.

However, in the same slide released in Greenwald’s book “No Place to Hide,” the same PRISM slide deletes Venezuela and Colombia but adds Japan, which appears underneath Mexico. And beneath the heading of Japan are two subject areas for NSA surveillance concentration: “trade,” which is understandable, and “Israel,” which may point to illegal Israeli nuclear weapons proliferation to that country. Whatever the interest of NSA in Japanese-Israeli relations, it appears that it dwarfs Japanese relations with China and South Korea, which are important in their own right.

 

 

Original slide on PRISM published in 2013

[Apologies, but neither of the slides could be brought over…]

 

The newest version of the same slide published in Greenwald’s book in 2014

On September 20, 2011, WMR reported on Israel’s sale of nuclear weapons materials, including plutonium stolen from U.S. nuclear facilities, including Pantex in Texas:

“One of the countries that received re-sold American plutonium fuel from Israel was Japan. However, the Japanese soon discovered that the plutonium for which they were paying the Israelis top dollar was too old and provided only short-life usable nuclear weapons.

Japan decided to go it alone on their nuclear weapons development but not before they planned to blow the whistle on the Israeli and American smuggling operation to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

Before the Japanese could act, the super-quake struck Japan, along with the devastating tsunami. At that point in time, Israel and the Americans programmed their Stuxnet computer virus to trigger the nuclear catastrophe at Fukushima, the major site for Japan’s nuclear weapons development program. Stuxnet, developed to disrupt Iran’s nuclear program, is also effective against the nuclear power generation systems of other nations using standard supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) software, including the plutonium MOX fuel processing operations at Fukushima. Stuxnet can be used to blackmail recipients of the smuggled plutonium material, including MOX fuel, into silence. The Fukushima disaster destroyed physical evidence of the Israeli smuggling operation to Japan. However, Japanese intelligence possesses other evidence of the Israeli smuggling operations.”

From the latest redacted and clearly altered NSA slide on Israel’s relationship with Japan being targeted by the NSA, there is yet more evidence of Israel’s clandestine military operations in East Asia. WMR has also reported on Japan’s nuclear weapons cooperation with North Korea.

“… No one at Williams College will comment on this case with this exception. Last night, President Adam Falk posted a statement on the Williams website.

The school investigated. There was an appeal. Eventually, Lexie was told the hockey player would be suspended for three semesters. She asked why he wasn’t being expelled.

HOW TO PREVENT UKRAINE’S TINDERBOX FROM EXPLODING

Top diplomat Christopher R. Hill says that Russia’s response to the Ukraine crisis means that Moscow has betrayed the “new world order” it has been a part of for the last 25 years.

In a piece for the influential Project Syndicate publication, Hill, a former US ambassador to Iraq and Korea, writes that Russia’s annexation of Crimea and “intimidation” campaign against Kiev has brought an end to a 25-year historical period, accusing Moscow of engaging in “regression, recidivism, and revanchism”.

Hill’s definition of the “new world order” is Russia’s post-Glasnost involvement in “Western institutions, a market economy, and a multi-party parliamentary democracy.”

“This new world order held for almost 25 years. Except for Russia’s brief war with Georgia in August 2008 (a conflict generally seen as instigated by reckless Georgian leadership), Russia’s acquiescence and commitment to the “new world order,” however problematic, was one of the great accomplishments of the post-Cold War era,” writes Hill.

New York Times Admits It Pushed Fabricated Evidence about Iraq, Syria and Ukraine

Posted on April 24, 2014 by WashingtonsBlog

Mainstream Media Is Being Forced to Retract Its Propaganda More and More Quickly

The New York Times pushed fabricated evidence in the run up to the Iraq war.   A year later, the newspaper apologized for its inaccurate, one-sided coverage.

The U.S. and the New York Times pretended that Syria’s government was responsible for the chemical weapons attack … but that claim was debunked, and even the New York Times was forced to retract it several months later.  (The alternative media, including Pulitzer prize winning reporter Seymour Hersh, has also pointed out that it was the Syrians rebels – with the help of the Turkish government – did it).

Then the U.S. and the New York Times pretended that they had proof that Russian soldiers were the mysterious “masked men” seizing government buildings in Ukraine.  But a couple of days later, they were forced reporting from the alternative media – especially Robert Parry, winner of the George Polk Award for National Reporting – into retracting that claim, and admitting that their “proof” was almost as flimsy as proof of Saddam’s “weapons of mass destruction”.

It seems like the alternative media is forcing the New York Times to retract half-baked, pro-war, propaganda claims more and more quickly.

The Vineyard of the Saker: And now, please stand for a message from our Imperial Overlords

“No amount of propaganda …” says Kerry.

“… Kerry and the interests he represents are really terrified and frustrated.  His statement is a desperate attempt to do what the lawyers call the “last resort rule“.  It goes like this: “If you have the law, hammer the law. If you have the facts, hammer the facts. If you have neither the law nor the facts, hammer the table”.  Kerry was hammering the table really very, very strongly and that, I realized, was an implicit admission that neither the (international) law nor the facts were on his side.  Had the facts or the law been on his side, there would have been no need for table hammering, of course.

His panic and frustration also showed in his rather clumsy attack on the Russia Today TV channelHere is what he said:

In fact, the propaganda bullhorn that is the state-sponsored Russia Today program, has been deployed to promote – actually, Russia Today network – has deployed to promote President Putin’s fantasy about what is playing out on the ground. They almost spend full time devoted to this effort to propagandize and to distort what is happening or not happening in Ukraine. Instead, in plain sight, Russia continues to fund, coordinate, and fuel a heavily armed separatist movement in Donetsk.

But think about it:  Russia Today does not broadcast in Ukrainian or Russian.  It broadcasts in English, Spanish and Arabic.  The only thing RT does broadcast in Russian are its documentaries on its dedicated website: http://doc.rt.com/on-air/.  This is a tiny fraction of what the channel really does and its audience in Russia or the Ukraine is minute compared to the one of the big Russian TV channels.  So why did Kerry single our Russia Today?  The answer is obvious, of course, it is because Russia Today is a very popular TV channel outside Russia or the Ukraine.  According to Wikipedia,

The network’s signal is carried by 22 satellites and over 230 operators, which allows some 644 million people to watch the channel in more than 100 countries. RT America is available to 85 million people in the United States.  In 2011 it was the second most-watched foreign news channel in the U.S. after BBC World News, and the number one foreign station in five major U.S. urban areas in 2012. It is also very popular among younger American people, U.S. college students, and in U.S. inner city neighborhoods. In 2013 RT has become the first TV news channel in history to reach 1 billion views on YouTube. According to the Broadcasters’ Audience Research Board between 2.2–2.3 million Britons tuned their televisions to RT during the second half of 2012, making it the fourth-most watched rolling news channel in Britain, behind BBC News, Sky News and Al Jazeera English.

Remember the candid admission of Walter Isaacson, chairman of the Broadcasting Board of Governors, who openly declared that,

We can’t allow ourselves to be out-communicated by our enemies, you’ve got Russia Today, Iran’s Press TV, Venezuela’s TeleSUR, and of course, China is launching an international broadcasting 24-hour news channel with correspondents around the world [and has] reportedly set aside $6 -10 billion dollars – we have to go to Capitol Hill with that number – to expand their overseas media operations.”

So there you have it. ….”

PENTAGON IS USING ENVIRONMENTAL MONITORING SATELLITES TO PLAN AND SHAPE ITS WARFIGHTING CAPABILITIES

[Rothschild’s rains on the plain shift over to Ukraine?]

 

Evelyn de Rothschild and Lynn Forester de Rothschild said they are buying a majority stake in weather-data service Weather Central L.P., marking a significant expansion of the Rothschilds’ investments into media and information.

The couple’s private-investment company, E.L. Rothschild LLC, is slated to acquire 70% of Weather Central, which provides weather forecasting services and graphics to local television stations and TV programs such as ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

Ms. Forester de Rothschild, a former telecommunications executive and a prominent Democratic fund raiser, is CEO of E.L. Rothschild. Evelyn, her husband, is chairman of the investment company and was chairman of the NM Rothschild & Sons investment bank until 2007, when he cashed out his investment. His cousin, Baron David de Rothschild, now runs the investment bank.

E.L. Rothschild also holds the couple’s investments in the U.K.’s Economist Group and agricultural company FieldFresh Foods, majority owned by India’s Bharti Enterprises.

“We have been looking for an investment to partner on an operating basis — as we did with our investment in agriculture in India and with the Economist — since my husband sold his position in NM Rothschild,” Ms. Forester de Rothschild said in an interview. [Snip] Ms. Forester de Rothschild also said the company also has mulled starting a cable-TV channel, similar to the Weather Channel. The Weather Channel was purchased more than two years ago in a $3.5 billion deal led by NBC Universal and private-equity firms Blackstone Group and Bain Capital.

▶ Doctors of the Dark Side Trailer – a Documentary Film by Martha Davis – YouTube   

“Doctors of the Dark Side” exposes the scandal behind the torture scandal — how psychologists and physicians devised, supervised and covered up the torture of detainees in US controlled military prisons. Producer/Director Martha Davis (Interrogation Psychologists) spent four years investigating the controversy. The feature-length documentary is written by Oscar-winner Mark Jonathan Harris (Into the Arms of Strangers) and shot in HD by award-winning director of photography Lisa Rinzler (Pollock). The stories of four detainees and the doctors involved in their torture reveal the terrible cost of putting doctors virtually in charge of detainee interrogations.

U.S. Waived Laws to Keep F-35 on Track with Parts Made in China

January 4th, 2014

Via: Reuters:

The Pentagon repeatedly waived laws banning Chinese-built components on U.S. weapons in order to keep the $392 billion Lockheed Martin Corp F-35 fighter program on track in 2012 and 2013, even as U.S. officials were voicing concern about China’s espionage and military buildup.

According to Pentagon documents reviewed by Reuters, chief U.S. arms buyer Frank Kendall allowed two F-35 suppliers, Northrop Grumman Corp and Honeywell International Inc, to use Chinese magnets for the new warplane’s radar system, landing gears and other hardware. Without the waivers, both companies could have faced sanctions for violating federal law and the F-35 program could have faced further delays.

“It was a pretty big deal and an unusual situation because there’s a prohibition on doing defense work in China, even if it’s inadvertent,” said Frank Kenlon, who recently retired as a senior Pentagon procurement official and now teaches at American University. “I’d never seen this happen before.”

NSA statement does not deny ‘spying’ on members of Congress –Statement cites ‘same privacy protections as all US persons’ [LOL, in other words, they spy as easily as breathe.] 04 Jan 2014 The National Security Agency on Saturday released a statement in answer to questions from a senator about whether it “has spied, or is…currently spying, on members of Congress or other American elected officials”, in which it did not deny collecting communications from legislators of the US Congress to whom it says it is accountable. In a letter dated 3 January, Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont defined “spying” as “gathering metadata on calls made from official or personal phones, content from websites visited or emails sent, or collecting any other data from a third party not made available to the general public in the regular course of business”.

Senator presses NSA to reveal whether it spies on members of Congress 03 Jan 2014 A US senator has bluntly asked the National Security Agency if it spies on Congress, raising the stakes for the surveillance agency’s legislative fight to preserve its broad surveillance powers. Bernie Sanders, a Vermont independent and socialist, asked army general Keith Alexander, the NSA’s outgoing director, if the NSA “has spied, or is the NSA currently spying, on members of Congress or other American elected officials”. Sanders, in a letter dated 3 January, defined “spying” as “gathering metadata on calls made from official or personal phones, content from websites visited or emails sent, or collecting any other data from a third party not made available to the general public in the regular course of business”.

http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2014/01/nsa-pretty-much-admits-spying-congress.html The Bigger Question: What Is NSA Doing With the Info? A much stricter rule was set for US government communications found in the raw intelligence. The Israelis were required to “destroy upon recognition” any communication “that is either to or from an official of the US government“. Such communications included those of “officials of the executive branch (including the White House, cabinet departments, and independent agencies), the US House of Representatives and Senate (member and staff) and the US federal court system (including, but not limited to, the supreme court)”.

Appeals court: OK to keep surveillance opinion secret 03 Jan 2014 The Justice [sic] Department is not obligated to release a legal opinion it prepared regarding the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s surveillance authorities, even though an FBI official referred to the memo while defending the agency at a public Congressional hearing, a federal appeals court ruled Friday. The unanimous ruling from a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit strengthens the almost unlimited discretion the Justice Department enjoys in deciding which Office of Legal Counsel opinions to make public and which to keep under wraps. Judge Harry Edwards, writing for Judges Sri Srinivasan and David Sentelle, found that the OLC opinion was not binding on the FBI–even though it is virtually unheard of for an executive branch agency to defy an OLC opinion, especially an agency also part of the Justice Department.

Another Massive Cyber-attack on US Citizens and Nobody Cares

Over the last month, cyberterrorists operating from offshore locations, launched a massive attack on US citizens.  By hacking point of sale terminals in Target stores, the group was able to steal information from 40 million citizens across the US.

Given the unique nature of this attack, it didn’t only steal credit card numbers.   It was also successful in gathering the three digit verification codes as well as name and address information.  The ability to link all three is a huge coup for the attackers, since it allows the construction of databases that will enable much more sophisticated attacks in the future.

For example, phishing e-mails (e-mails that look like messages from a trusted source, like a bank) are already being sent to e-mail addresses linked to these addresses to gather even more information and/or install malware.

Although, large numbers of these credit cards have already been sold at $100 a pop (although that price is decaying quickly), the biggest benefit, long term, is that this information is major addition to databases that stitch together the information needed to easily mount attacks on Americans in the future.

What it Means

Simply:

  • This isn’t just a simple crime.  It’s an attack.  An attack with both short term and long term ramifications.
  • The US national security establishment didn’t even attempt to protect us from this.  Why?  The folks running the show down in Washington don’t, and still don’t, consider the biggest cyber attack on US citizens to date a national security issue.  As with 9/11, our expensive national defense syste was totally ineffective when we needed it.
  • Finding and neutralizing cyberattackers doing real and tangible damage to tens of millions of US citizens is a much better role for the NSA than what it is currently doing — a combination of spying on tens of millions of Americans (unconstitutional) and supporting the pursuit of traditional terrorists at a mindboggling price of $100 m each.

President Barack Obama and daughters Malia and Sasha left their vacation in Hawaii on Saturday, but left First Lady Michelle Obama behind on the islands, according to news agency reports. The president reportedly let his wife stay on in Hawaii with friends as a “birthday present.” Michelle Obama will turn 50 years old on Jan. 17.

It is a birthday present whose costs, in separate travel and security expenses, are likely to be borne, in part, by taxpayers. On a previous occasion, when Mrs. Obama left for a Hawaii vacation in advance of her husband, the additional cost to the Treasury was estimated to be at least $63,000, and potentially upwards of $100,000.

After years of silence, John DeCamp has spoken out about what happened in the case against Solvay Pharmaceuticals where he represented Columbine survivor Mark Taylor.

John DeCamp is the author of The Franklin Coverup, a former State Congressman, a Vietnam Veteran and the first attorney to sue the Catholic Church for sexually abusing children. Now that even the Pope admits it, let’s move on to the sexual predator cops.

In Mark Taylor v. Solvay Pharmaceuticals, there was no verdict, nor was there a settlement. A mistrial was declared and nearly 20,000 pages were put under seal. These include the deposition of Eric’s mother and many documents marked “Attorneys Eyes Only.” Through an intermediary, these documents were offered to the Denver Post in the Spring of 2013. They weren’t interested! The documents remain unpublished but now copies have been distributed to other agencies other than INI.

The Elephant in the Room is a [92-minute] documentary following British filmmaker Dean Puckett through his journey into the 9/11 Truth Movement: a global movement of ‘conspiracy theorists’ who believe that the official explanation about what happened on 9/11 is totally or partially inaccurate. The filmmakers travel from middle England, across Europe and to New York for the six year anniversary of the attacks, where the film takes one final twist as we are introduced to the 9/11 first responders who are suffering from various grave health difficulties due to the toxic dust that they breathed in trying to help their country during the weeks after this tragic event. Told with a personal hands on approach that avoids advancing any one position, the film asks the question: are these crazy conspiracy theorists? Or is 9/11 Truth a credible political movement?

The film premiered at the BFI on the Southbank in London – winning Best UK Documentary at the London Independent Film Festival 2008.

Lots of folks have been waiting for the Obama Administration to remove its imprimaturial resistance to the publication of the 6,000-page report accepted by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence: http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2013/12/the-6-000-page-report-on-cia-torture-has-now-been-suppressed-for-1-year/282318/.

 

“… containing more than 35,000 footnotes, [it] is a serious and comprehensive review of the CIA’s past torture program. The report is a significant step to making sure the U.S. government does not return to official policies of torture and cruel treatment,” said Curt Goering, executive director of CVT (Center for Victims of Torture) [ http://www.cvt.org/ ].

[ http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/torture-classified-report-release/2013/12/13/id/541691#ixzz2pYHfYcxP ].

In lieu of the report and any transparency on the part of the Obama Administration, I’ve been reading along in a parallel universe. I’ve been reading along in a parallel universe. I speak specifically of the first three chapters of Solzhenitsyn’s “Gulag Archipelago” on The Arrest, The History…, and The Interrogation.

One might wonder how I can envision that the Obama Administration is in parallel with the Stalinesque Communist system. Here’s how:

I’ve read Melanson’s book “Perfectibilists”… http://trineday.com/paypal_store/product_pages/perfectibilists.html and seen the connections to Marx and many other marxists and the banking cabals of Rothschild et al in this early explanation of the “methods of infiltrating governments and education systems, and their blueprint for a successful cabal, which echoes directly forward through groups like the Order of Skull & Bones to our own era”, and I’ve carried that through into Millegan’s “Fleshing Out. Skull and Bones” http://trineday.com/paypal_store/product_pages/Fleshing_Out1.htm, filled with multiple articles, lots of footnotes, and the complete list of membership  (1833-2004), alphabetized, with short resume.  (Sit down with that list, a high-lighter, a note pad, and a few hours of free uninterrupted time with a search engine.)

If you don’t possess a copy of the Gulag trilogy (I’ve refrained from buying Volumes Two and Three until I complete Volume One), you can grab the essence of the chapter on interrogation right here:

DOD Releases Roadmap for Hunter and Killer Robots: Looks 25 Years Ahead in Unmanned Vehicle Vision 

http://delphibrief.com/dod-releases-roadmap-hunter-killer-robots-looks-25-years-ahead-unmanned-vehicle-vision/ 

http://www.defense.gov/news/newsarticle.aspx?id=121392 

“The 2013 Unmanned Systems Integrated Roadmap articulates a vision and strategy for the continued development, production, test, training, operation and sustainment of unmanned systems technology across DOD,” said Dyke Weatherington, the director of the unmanned warfare and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance office at the Pentagon.

“This road map establishes a technological vision for the next 25 years and outlines the actions and technologies for DOD and industry to pursue to intelligently and affordably align with this vision,” he continued.

Unmanned aerial vehicles have received the most press, but unmanned underwater vehicles and ground vehicles are also providing warfighters with incredible capabilities.

Although unmanned vehicles have proved their worth in combat operations throughout the Middle East and Central Asia, current technologies must be expanded and integrated into the sinews of the defense establishment, the report says.

It also calls for unmanned systems to be programs of record in order to achieve “the levels of effectiveness, efficiency, affordability, commonality, interoperability, integration and other key parameters needed to meet future operational requirements.”

Of course, all DOD programs have to face the reality of the budget crunch. “Achieving affordable and cost-effective technical solutions is imperative in this fiscally constrained environment,” the report notes.

Strategy really drives the technology. Unmanned systems will be crucial as the U.S. military shifts its focus to the Asia-Pacific region and puts the air-sea doctrine into effect. In the future, unmanned vehicles will be required to operate in more complex environments involving difficult weather, terrain, distance and airspace. All this will require extensive coordination with allies and host nations, the report says.

“The road map describes the challenges of logistics and sustainment, training and international cooperation while providing insight on the strategic planning and policy, capability needs, technology development and operational environments relevant to the spectrum of unmanned systems,” Weatherington said.

Who’s scared of the return of the USSR?

01.01.2014

“… Let’s rephrase the question- are the Americans ready for the recreation of not the USSR but the Russian Empire? Or, for example, Russia as a bourgeois republic of the period of February Revolution? Are they ready for this? They do not talk about it for the simple reason that the ideological color means absolutely nothing. They blamed everything on the Soviet past, saying that there was a terrible totalitarian communism. In fact, it does not matter whether this was a “totalitarian communism,” “tsarist regime,” or ” bourgeois republic.” They don’t care. The main thing is not to allow a strong competitor. That’s it.

They are simply using the USSR for manipulative purposes, inventing threats of the return of the Soviet Union simply because this stage of history is more or less relevant. In America, in Europe there a lot of people who remember all these things.

The real, pure essence of the process is simple – the Americans are struggling with any possible competition that could threaten their leadership. And they call it different names in different cases.”

January 3-5, 2014 — NSA has capability to zap cell phone users with RF energy

According to a set of documents from the National Security Agency’s ANT division, which likely stands for Access or Advanced Network Technology, the NSA has fielded special units which drive up the RF output of cell phones. According to medical experts, the increased radiation can cause brain cancer, skin burns, and eye cataracts.

The NSA unit is code named WATERWITCH.

WMR’s editor discovered this technology the hard way when he received a second degree burn while talking on a Samsung cell phone in January 2011.

On January 10, 2011, WMR reported that this editor was under increased NSA surveillance because of a number of recent exposés of NSA:

“WMR has learned from an NSA source that this editor continues to remain a top priority for NSA electronic surveillance, including phone tapping and e-mail interception. NSA is also monitoring all those who are in communications with this editor via electronic means. WMR has previously reported on this web site’s sources and contacts being major targets for NSA surveillance. Just as the latest report of NSA surveillance was received, this editor experienced a second-degree burn with blistering on the right neck and shoulder, usually where my cell phone is placed during conversations. The latest warning about NSA eavesdropping was received on January 8. The burn, that began as what can be described as a bad sunburn, began on the evening of January 6. The contour of the burn mark is oddly similar to the two equal halves of my flip-top telephone, with a white stripe in the middle where the hinge is located.”

http://www.waynemadsenreport.com/custom/SDC10481.JPG 

Second degree burns on Wayne Madsen’s right shoulder and neck after January 2011 warning of increased NSA phone surveillance.

It now appears that the editor was subjected to a blast from WATERWITCH targeting and “finishing” signal boosting unit that works with the TYPHON equipment interrogator. The NSA document on WATERWITCH states the unit “emits tone and gives signal strength of target handset” from within a mile of the target.

The handy new NSA tool which zapped Captain Madsen of the WMR ship has quite an unusual name. Waterwitch, eh?

Without falling off the conspiracy cliff, we have seen many times that we are being governed by ritualistic dark creatures. Unusual names such as this do not occur by coincidences. Let’s look at some of the other ‘Waterwitches’ in history.

The US Navy had several ‘water witches’ at a time when the US Navy was known to be heavily infiltrated by British rule. We should also not speak of this phenomenon in such light past tense but this is another long topic altogether. See this Waterwitch collection here.

Her Majesty’s Royal Navy had a collection of Waterwitches found here.

Then the name comes up again via author James Fenimore Cooper. Note again the old British blood lines per this wiki bio, his Skull and Bones Yale connection and again the US Navy/British Royal Navy connection.

Author James Fenimore Cooper of the ‘Waterwitch’ writing world is also widely known for being a prolific writer of a certain genre so that Amazon.com pragmatically stuffed all of his work under the “occult” section, as seen here.

By the way, most of those US Navy and British Royal Navy Waterwitch ships suffered a tragic demise. Maybe it’s a ritual. Or just a lot of strange coincidences.

Here is an explanation of the occult meaning of water-witching. I do not mean to placate anyone with subjective Christian literature but the link above was handy and the occult connection is confirmed, so here is that.

People with old British blood lines and the US Navy have always been an exceptionally bad combination….I know of quite a few more such ‘historic coincidences’. Worst of all, we do not even have the luxury of speaking of this in past tense connections either.

What comes up under ‘Waterwitch’ is a lot of old British blood lines, a lot of Navy on both sides of the US-UK Empire, occultism which is certainly known to exist at high levels of mil intel….

And now NSA had an evil new ‘Waterwitch’, too. So many coincidences. My search engine must just be water-dousing it all wrong….

As a few here know, I have been zapped with the same thing in 2011 and again about 6 weeks ago which now has a name – Waterwitch, she is. In the most recent episode a few weeks ago, I was zapped again and I called an ex-spook to ask what this was and while on the phone, another zap came – the other part definitely felt it also and said that this was coming through even on his end of the phone but that I was the target and that I should look for parked vehicles near my house. Same as what Captain Madsen of USS WMR now confirmed. I did get blasted as hard as Wayne and did not suffer burns like Wayne on the photo but came away with only a nasty deep inner ear ache which lingered for quite a while. The zaps are short pulses and pretty dramatic. It will definitely get your attention.

Useful info: The electronics spook who helped me when I asked the obligatory WTF? question said: Unplug all electronics in the house. Turn off wifi and keep it off. When not in use, take the cell phone battery out and keep the phone and battery in separate rooms when this happens. Electronic attacks come in via the above portals.

Sorry, No Such Agency. Whatever electronic witchcraft is deployed next, this stubborn old Balkans witch here is not going away from it.

There are many of us and if anything happens to one of us, many others will make a lot of noise about it.

Oh, look: 

New studies: ‘Conspiracy theorists’ sane; government dupes crazy, hostile

July 13, 2013

An excerpt:

“In other words, people who use the terms “conspiracy theory” and “conspiracy theorist” as an insult are doing so as the result of a well-documented, undisputed, historically-real conspiracy by the CIA to cover up the JFK assassination. That campaign, by the way, was completely illegal, and the CIA officers involved were criminals; the CIA is barred from all domestic activities, yet routinely breaks the law to conduct domestic operations ranging from propaganda to assassinations.

DeHaven-Smith also explains why those who doubt official explanations of high crimes are eager to discuss historical context. He points out that a very large number of conspiracy claims have turned out to be true, and that there appear to be strong relationships between many as-yet-unsolved “state crimes against democracy.” An obvious example is the link between the JFK and RFK assassinations, which both paved the way for presidencies that continued the Vietnam War. According to DeHaven-Smith, we should always discuss the “Kennedy assassinations” in the plural, because the two killings appear to have been aspects of the same larger crime.

Psychologist Laurie Manwell of the University of Guelph agrees that the CIA-designed “conspiracy theory” label impedes cognitive function. She points out, in an article published in American Behavioral Scientist (2010), that anti-conspiracy people are unable to think clearly about such apparent state crimes against democracy as 9/11 due to their inability to process information that conflicts with pre-existing belief.

In the same issue of ABS, University of Buffalo professor Steven Hoffman adds that anti-conspiracy people are typically prey to strong “confirmation bias” – that is, they seek out information that confirms their pre-existing beliefs, while using irrational mechanisms (such as the “conspiracy theory” label) to avoid conflicting information.”

From James Huang at http://whowhatwhy.com/2013/12/02/worth-reading-headline-grab-bag-11/ :

Former Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, a protege of Treasury Secretaries Rubin and Summers, has received his reward for continuing the Rubin-Summers-Paulson policy of supporting the “banks too big to fail” at the expense of the economy and American people. For his service to the handful of gigantic banks, whose existence attests to the fact that the Anti-Trust Act is a dead-letter law, Geithner has been appointed president and managing director of the private equity firm, Warburg Pincus and is on his way to his fortune.

A Warburg in-law financed Woodrow Wilson’s presidential campaign. Part of the reward was Wilson’s appointment of Paul Warburg to the first Federal Reserve Board. The symbiotic relationship between presidents and bankers has continued ever since. The same small clique continues to wield financial power.”

Jeb Bush tweeted out a blatant “lie” that went as follows: “Why would our President close our Embassy to the Vatican? Hopefully, it is not retribution for Catholic organizations opposing Obamacare.”

Why indeed would President Obama close the embassy?

First, the embassy is not closing and the implication that the United States is somehow abandoning the Vatican is not just a “lie,” but a whopper of a “lie” and it is sad that repeating this could harm a man of Jeb Bush’s standing in the country.

An excerpt:

Who Actually Wrote Obamacare?

And now for the shocking truth about who actually wrote Obamacare. After all the secrecy surrounding Obamacare is lifting, we can finally put a name to this cruel lie. The man’s name who wrote a great deal of the scourge that we call Obamacare, is convicted felon, Robert Creamer.

Creamer is now credited for writing 628 pages of Obamacare while he was in prison. Creamer is a senior Democratic operative who defrauded banks in order to keep his Marxist/Communist community organization afloat by engaging in 16 counts of bank and tax fraud. Creamer’s book is entitled, Stand Up Straight: How Progressives Can Win.

Many left-wingers say that Creamer’s book has inspired them in their progressive fight to turn America into socialist Europe. Creamer’s work has received support and garnered an endorsement from a surprising source. Or, maybe it is not so surprising after all. Former White House Senior Adviser, David Axelrod, described Creamer’s book as a “blueprint” for future progressive victories. Creamer has stated that in order to impose socialist healthcare on an unwilling nation, it is necessary to deceive the people

Creamer is the husband of Marxist Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky, an Illinois Democrat who demands a “single payer” healthcare delivery system. Creamer’s book calls for the “democratization of wealth,” and the “progressive control of governments around the world.”

Creamer says that Democrats could win a permanent majority in Congress “by passing a national health care bill, turning more people into wards of government, that works to grow government; and by giving amnesty to all illegals, thereby creating, virtually overnight, a large new constituency of Democratic voters.” With 50% of the country on some form of welfare, Creamer’s plan has progressed at a very rapid pace.

Creamer counseled Democrats that to win complete control of America, they must “not just generate understanding, but emotion—fear, revulsion, anger, disgust.” He adds, “If the Democrats continue to stand firmly for immigrant rights, the issue will define immigrants’ voting loyalties for a generation. If we’re successful, we’ll have a gigantic block of progressive votes over the next 15 years, a block that could be decisive in the battle for the future.”

Google Glass Making Its Way Into Operating Rooms

kkleiner writes

“Among the possible uses for Google Glass that early adopters are dreaming up, you can now add ‘surgical assistance’ to the list. With approval from the institutional review board, a UCSF cardiothoracic surgeon recently utilized Glass during procedures by utilizing its voice activation features to refer to patient x-ray scans. Aimed at providing surgeons with the most up-to-date patient data, a startup named VitaMedicals is building apps to stream in patient records and live scans to the device. Even though it’s early days for Glass, its potential in the medical space is huge and could revolutionize how doctor’s access and apply information from patient records.”

Administrative proceedings have been instituted in connection with the erection of the controversial gigantic suitcase on Moscow’s Red Square. The suitcase is to be removed from Russia’s iconic square next week.

The proceedings have been instituted into the illegal use of land. The materials of the case have been submitted to the State Inspectorate for Control over Real Estate. Violators of the law will be fined.

The unfortunate Louis Vuitton suitcase is to be removed from Red Square within seven days. The dismantling has already begun.

The giant LV trunk appeared on the square in the middle of November. The pavilion was to host “The Soul of Travel” art show.

Amazon Testing Delivery by Drone Aircraft

Bezos’ neat trick has knocked several real stories about Amazon out of the way. Last week’s Panorama investigation into Amazon’s working and hiring practices, suggesting that the site’s employees had an increased risk of mental illness, is the latest in a long line of pieces about the company’s working conditions – zero-hour contracts, short breaks, and employees’ every move tracked by internal systems. Amazon’s drone debacle also moved discussion of its tax bill – another long-running controversy, sparked by the Guardian’s revelation last year that the company had UK sales of £7bn but paid no UK corporation tax – to the margins.

The Quietest Place On Earth Will Cause You To Hallucinate In 45 Minutes

Posted by samzenpus on Monday December 02, 2013 @05:04AM

from the did-you-hear-that? dept.

Hugh Pickens DOT Com writes

“Industry Tap reports that there is a place so quiet you can hear your heart beat, your lungs breathe and your stomach digest. It’s the anechoic chamber at Orfield Labs in Minnesota where 3ft of sound-proofing fiberglass wedges and insulated steel and concrete absorbs 99.99% of sound, making it the quietest place in the world. ‘When it’s quiet, ears will adapt,’ says the company’s founder and president, Steven Orfield. ‘The quieter the room, the more things you hear. You’ll hear your heart beating, sometimes you can hear your lungs, hear your stomach gurgling loudly. In the anechoic chamber, you become the sound.’ The chamber is used by a multitude of manufacturers, to test how loud their products are and the space normally rents for $300 to $400 an hour. ‘It’s used for formal product testing, for research into the sound of different things — heart valves, the sound of the display of a cellphone, the sound of a switch on a car dashboard.’ But the strangest thing about the chamber is that sensory deprivation makes the room extremely disorienting, and people can rarely stay in the dark space for long. As the minutes tick by in absolute quiet, the human mind begins to lose its grip, causing test subjects to experience visual and aural hallucinations. ‘We challenge people to sit in the chamber in the dark — one reporter stayed in there for 45 minutes,’ says Orfield who says even he can’t stand the quiet for more than about 30 minutes. Nasa uses a similar chamber to test its astronauts putting them in a water-filled tank inside the room to see ‘how long it takes before hallucinations take place and whether they could work through it.'”
