Cop To Vet On Receiving End Of Bogus Raid: Investigating Things Beforehand Just Slows Us Down

The "shoot first, ask for immunity later" mentality of today's law enforcement officers is perfectly highlighted in this story about a US military veteran finding himself on the receiving end of a military-style raid… all because a "helpful" neighbor reported him for being in the "wrong" apartment. (via Amy Alkon) Alex Horton, an Iraq war veteran, was having some work done on his apartment. During the repairs, his landlord put him up in a "model unit." He fell asleep in an apartment otherwise known to be unoccupied. A passing neighbor apparently saw him in the apartment through the cracked door and reported this to the police. What happened next was standard operating procedure -- both for the US military and US law enforcement.

What’s Left of the American Dream Withers at Record Pace

The current housing boom has Dallas solidly in its grip. As in many cities around the US, prices are soaring, buyers are going nuts, sellers run the show, realtors are laughing all the way to the bank, and the media are having a field day. Nationwide, the median price of existing homes, at $236,400, as the National Association of Realtors sees it, is now 2.7% higher than it was even in July 2006, the insane peak of the crazy housing bubble that blew up with such spectacular results.

National Endowment for Democracy found "Undesirable" in Russia- Prosecutors

Russia bans US National Endowment for Democracy as "undesirable"

Russia has moved to ban a prominent US organization from operating in the country under the nation's controversial new "undesirables" law. Critics have slammed the ban as an attempt to limit civil society.

Russian prosecutors declared Tuesday that the US National Endowment for Democracy will be the first "undesirable" foreign group banned under a controversial new law designed to limit the influence of overseas organizations perceived as a threat.

"Taking into account the overall aim of the Endowment's work, prosecutors came to the conclusion that it presents a threat to the constitutional order of Russia, its defense capabilities and state security," the prosecutors said in a statement.

New Report Finds 'Strong Evidence' of Israeli War Crimes in Gaza

Amnesty International says its new report provides "some of the most compelling evidence yet" that Israel committed war crimes during its attack on Gaza last summer.

'Black Friday': Carnage in Rafah during 2014 Israel/Gaza conflict states that findings indicate that Israeli forces acted in retaliatory manner, with disregard for civilian life, after Lieutenant Hadar Goldin was captured by Hamas fighters, and that the events demand urgent, independent investigation.

"The ferocity of the attack on Rafah shows the extreme measures Israeli forces were prepared to take to prevent the capture alive of one soldier—scores of Palestinian civilian lives were sacrificed for this single aim," said Philip Luther, Director of the Middle East and North Africa Program at Amnesty International.

Rand Paul: Fraud, Failure, Liar

by Justin Raimondo, July 29, 2015 As the smoke wafted up into the already smoggy Los Angeles air, a group of young libertarians watched as Jayel Aheram burned his “Stand With Rand” t-shirts. He had two of them, a token of his former esteem for the “libertarian-ish” presidential candidate and Senator from Kentucky, whose father had inspired young Jayel to identify as a libertarian and become active in the movement. A former Marine and Iraq war veteran, the now 31-year-old Aheram had phone-banked for Rand, and enthusiastically retweeted the Senator’s pronouncements on Twitter. He had even forked out $35 for those T-shirts – and now they were going up in flames as he and a group of young libertarians sat on the roof of Jayel’s Los Angeles apartment, drinking beer and glumly contemplating what had brought them – all former supporters of Rand Paul’s presidential campaign – to this point. As Charles Davis writes over at MondoWeiss:

Windows 10: Here are the privacy issues you should know about

The new policies take effect on 1 August and there are a few unsettling things nestling in there that you should be thinking about if you’re using the company’s services and software.

The Privacy Statement and Services Agreements combined come to 45 pages. Microsoft’s deputy general counsel, Horacio Gutierrez wrote that they are “straightforward terms and polices that people can clearly understand.” The reality is, you’re probably not going to read them. So I did…

And, like so many other companies, Microsoft has grabbed some very broad powers to collect things you do, say and create while using its software. Your data won’t be staying on your computer, that much is for sure.

Aurora Shooting Victim Parents Face $200K Court Fees, Bankruptcy, After Failing to Sue Ammo Dealers

They bleived that the online retailer BulkAmmo.com had sold Holmes more than 4,000 rounds of ammunition, along with The Sportsman’s Guide, with a 100-round magazine and 700 rounds, BTP Arms for two canisters of tear gas, and Bullet Proof Body Armor.

HRW calls Saudi airstrike in Yemen’s Ta’izz prov. “apparent war crime”

Human Rights Watch says a recent Saudi airstrike on the Yemeni town of Mukha that left scores of civilians dead appears to be a war crime.

The rights organization said there was no evident military target at the site of the airstrike. The HRW said Riyadh has so far failed to look into alleged breaches of the rules of engagement. It said the failure of Saudi Arabia to investigate unlawful airstrikes in Yemen demonstrates the need for the United Nations Human Rights Council to create a commission of inquiry to investigate allegations of violations by Riyadh. The rights group said 65 civilians including 10 children were killed in the air raid on Ta’izz province on Friday. But some sources put the death toll at more than 140 civilians. Saudi Arabia has been pounding Yemen since March 26. The onslaught has claimed nearly 49-hundred Yemeni lives, mostly civilians.

Life on Earth began with 'hiccups': Reproduction started slowly in primordial soup rather than with a bang

Life on Earth may have 'hiccuped' into existence from a primordial soup of chemicals, according to new research.

Scientists have found long chains of molecules can develop the ability to replicate themselves, and so pass on their properties, by acting as a template around which other chemicals form.

The findings suggest all that was needed to kickstart the path towards living cells was the formation of these molecular chains, known as polymers rather than a dramatic spark or event.

Two, due to revisions that happen once a year and some new adjustments, it'll reveal whether gross domestic product really contracted in the January to March period.

The law the president mentioned is the 22nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, limiting a president to two terms. It was ratified in 1951, in a kind of delayed reaction to the epochal presidency of Franklin D. Roosevelt, who won his fourth term in 1944.

US, EU 'Give Up' Ukraine to Seek Russian Political Support

After inciting the Ukrainian conflict that led the country to a civil war and brought it to the verge of economic collapse, the West has now realized that Ukraine isn’t worth much, at least not as much as establishing a working political relationship with Russia, US political journalist Brian Whitmore said.

The United States and the European Union (EU) are "selling out" Ukraine to Russia to gain the Kremlin's support in dealing with Iran's nuclear program and looking for Moscow's approval of taking out Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad, the Atlantic Magazine reported.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If true, this is an act of desperation by the US/EU to break out of the logjam of wars they are stuck in. The US/EU knows Iran doesn't actually have nuclear weapons. Russia knows it too, and knows that the real goal is for the US to take economic control of Iran's (and everyone else's) oil, which Russia is clearly opposed to. The US/EU have to know this deal to "give" Russia Ukraine is a non-starter, and Putin would be correct to see this as a sign that the US/EU know they cannot continue with military actions is so many nations at the same time.

Judicial Watch: IRS Produces Recovered Lerner Emails

The IRS released the emails under a court order by U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan. The new documents show that Lois Lerner and other top officials in the Exempt Organizations Unit of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), including soon-to-be Acting IRS Commissioner Steve Miller, closely monitored and approved the controversial handling of tax-exempt applications by Tea Party organizations. The documents also show that at least one group received an inquiry from the IRS in order to buy time and keep the organization from contacting Congress.

Obamacare: Health Insurers Seek Huge Price Increases

President Obama’s supporters are quick to tout his record as one of tremendous success, especially his “reform” of health care, but that is largely because they like him personally – not because Obamacare has been a rousing success.

By any measure the law, which has routinely been upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court as constitutional despite the use of dubious legal justifications, remains largely unpopular among a majority of Americans. In addition to that, almost nothing of what the president and acceding Democrats promised the law would do has come to fruition. Indeed, on a number of fronts, the law has created the exact opposite effects.

And indeed, for many, Holder’s seamless slide from theoretically prosecuting big banks to defending big banks from prosecution is a common-sense phenomenon only the hopelessly naïve would bother to decry. He’s a lawyer, what do you expect? was the substance of many a comment –of what comment there was, because, again, this latest glimpse of the porous tissue between regulator and regulated went down as no news at all for most of the press.

Now Is The Time – Fear Rises As Financial Markets All Over The Planet Start To Crash

Can you feel the panic in the air? CNN Money’s Fear & Greed Index measures the amount of fear in the financial world on a scale from 0 to 100. The closer it is to zero, the higher the level of fear. Last Monday, the index was sitting at a reading of 36. As I write this article, it has fallen to 7. The financial turmoil which began last week is threatening to turn into an avalanche. On Sunday night, we witnessed the second largest one day stock market collapse in China ever, and this pushed stocks all over the planet into the red.

Caught on Body Camera: Cincinnati Now Bracing for Riots After Cop Kills Black Man During Routine Traffic Stop

First Ferguson. Then New York City. Then Baltimore. Now, Cincinnati is apparently next.

A man was apparently shot and killed by a cop wearing a body camera that caught the entire incident after a routine traffic stop for a missing front license plate. The victim, 43-year-old Sam Dubose, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Since Jennifer Baker of Revolution News put it so succinctly, we’ll just quote her for the details:

Sam Dubose ended up dead with his face blown off after a routine traffic stop by a University of Cincinnati Police Officer. Officer Ray Tensing was wearing a body camera at the time of the shooting and recorded the incident. Those that have seen the video footage and made comments about it seem deeply disturbed, including the citywide police chief.

Pentagon Admits Live Anthrax Has Been “Accidentally” Shipped a Whopping 192 Times in the Last Decade

Talk about a box of fail.

Now the Pentagon has admitted that at least 192 labs in the past ten years have received shipments of live anthrax from the Army. That’s almost four times as many labs as it admitted to back in June. “Major protocol problems,” doesn’t begin to cover it.

“The agency said on Monday that the list now includes labs in all 50 states, as well as Guam, Puerto Rico, the US Virgin Islands and Washington, DC. The labs received live anthrax because of ineffective sterilization methods for killing the deadly bacteria. Seven foreign countries also received the shipments, including Australia, Canada, Germany, Italy, Japan, South Korea, and the UK, according to the Department of Defense’s Laboratory Review site,” RT reported.

Wow. How many times can something happen and still be deemed an “accident” anyway?

How Aristocrats Have Gotten Away with Even Mass-Murder

On 8 July 2015, in a pervasively ignored but historically very important news event (briefly mentioned by the BBC), the only trial ever in which a former head of state was convicted in his own country for genocide — in the long court case of Ronald Reagan’s friend Guatemalan General Rios Montt — finally petered out via a declaration by a Guatemalan court, alleging that Montt’s 10 May 2013 Guatemalan conviction and 80-year prison sentence (never served) for genocide, must now simply be abandoned, because Montt is supposedly “mentally incompetent to stand trial." Though a retrial of his case had been promised, it probably won’t happen. Guatemala’s aristocracy seem to have blocked any and all penalty for their General and former President’s genocide.

EXCLUSIVE: 'Hillary must NEVER become President', says the woman who exposed Bill's affair with Monica. Former Clinton West Wing assistant Linda Tripp says Democratic contender is a liar who treats the public with contempt

It was the scandal that saw Bill Clinton impeached and which threatened to bring down his presidency. For many, it continues to define it to this day.

But according to the woman who outed Monica Lewinsky as the president's mistress, the real story was never about Monica. It was about 'subornation of perjury, obstruction of justice… a true abuse of power.' And it was about Hillary.

Because, according to Linda Tripp, it was Hillary who manipulated and stage managed the story, converting herself from a lackluster First Lady with unimpressive approval ratings to admirable First Victim - the blindsided wife standing by her man.

She made him forgivable. She 'orchestrated the cover up' and she made damn sure that she moved on. Nothing, and no-one, was going to stand in her way.

Newly recovered Lois Lerner email shows IRS tried to cover up tea party targeting

The IRS sent one of its intrusive scrutiny letters to a nonprofit group in order to throw up a smokescreen and prevent the group from complaining to Congress about poor treatment, according to one of Lois G. Lerner’s apparently lost emails, which were recovered by auditors and released by an interest group Tuesday.

Judicial Watch, which sued to force the production of the Lerner emails, said the emails confirm that Ms. Lerner, the central figure in the targeting probe, and her colleagues were aware of the sensitive nature of the cases but appeared to hide details of the massive backlog they were amassing as they held up hundreds of tea party and conservative group applications for nonprofit status.

One That Won’t Make Headlines: Man With Concealed Carry Permit Prevents Mass Shooting

Here’s a story that won’t make many headlines in the mainstream media, because it doesn’t neatly fit the anti-Second Amendment agenda.

An Ohio concealed carrier prevented a tragedy Sunday, as he fired upon a man who was trying to kill a woman he got into an argument with, as well as her one year old child, and innocent bystanders.

Cincinnati’s Fox19 reports that 62-year-old Thomas McCary pulled a gun on Patrick Ewing when Ewing attempted to settle a dispute between his own sister, Jeaneta Walker, and McCary.

McCary shot at Ewing three times, according to the report, prompting Ewing to pull out his own firearm, which he has under a concealed carry license.

Ewing hit McCary in the leg, but it didn’t prevent him from returning to his house and emerging with yet more firepower.

McCary, now carrying two handguns, came out firing at anyone in sight, including Ms Walker, the child, and another man in the vicinity.

Happy Birthday may finally be free after bombshell discovery

he world’s most popular song dates from 1893 but a studio has been forcing people to pay for it all the same. Now, last minute evidence in a closely-watched court case could make “Happy Birthday” free at last, and end one of the most controversial copyright claims in history.

The evidence comes in the form of a book of music from 1927 titled “The Everyday Songbook,” which was put before a federal judge in California this week. There, in its pages, is a copy of the words and melody of “Happy Birthday,” whose appearance should serve to put the famous song in the public domain once and for all – and end a licensing gig that reportedly nets publisher Warner/Chappell’s $2 million per year.

Time Warner executive moonlights as speechwriter for Netanyahu

One of Time Warner’s top executives moonlights as a speechwriter for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, warning the west about Iran.

Gary Ginsberg, executive vice president of corporate marketing and communications for Time Warner, advised Netanyahu to pull out the famous bomb cartoon at the United Nations General Assembly in 2012 and helped craft such lines as the claim that Iran threatens Israel with “nuclear extinction.”

Tell Congress to investigate and defund Planned Parenthood

Recently, Planned Parenthood was exposed harvesting and distributing human body parts of aborted babies. This is morally repulsive!

A recent undercover video made by the Center for Medical Progress, an advocacy group that reports on medical ethics, shows Planned Parenthood's senior director of medical services Deborah Nucatola, casually sipping a glass of wine while discussing the gory details of how to remove a child from its mother's womb in the most expedient way so as to harvest as many body parts as possible to satisfy prospective clients.

The pro-murder crowd is attempting to justify this by saying this is only the distribution of fetal tissue and it is perfectly legal. Planned Parenthood is criticizing the makers of the video of "heavy editing." Is this a serious response?

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Partial birth abortions are illegal under US law, but the video shows that planned Parenthood uses partial birth abortions to maximize the harvest of fetal tissues. It is also against US law to alter the method of an abortion to harvest fetal tissue (which the video taped doctors admit doing) and finally, the trafficking of fetal tissue is itself illegal.

Banks Squirm As Congress Moves To Cut The 6% Dividend Paid To Them By The Fed

Did you know that the Federal Reserve pays an annual 6% dividend to its shareholders, i.e., the member banks of the cartel? Must be nice, considering savers who had nothing to do with cratering the world economy, and failed to receive a taxpayer funded bailout, can barely earn 0.5% on their money. It’s also quite bizarre. How many other “public institutions” have private shareholders to whom they pay 6% risk free dividends? None, which once again highlights the point that the Federal Reserve is NOT a public institution working on behalf of the citizenry, but is rather a banking cartel designed to enriched and protect its member banks (as we saw on clear display in 2008). It appears that some members of Congress are now targeting the estimated $17 billion per year paid out by the Fed to its member banks via the highway-funding bill.

Ted Cruz believes Captain Kirk was Republican; William Shatner responds

Cruz claimed in an interview with The New York Times Magazine that, “It is quite likely that Kirk is a Republican and Picard is a Democrat.” Captain Kirk, played by William Shatner, was in the original version of the series, while Captain Jean-Luc Picard, portrayed by Patrick Stewart, appeared in “Star Trek: The Next Generation.”

Cruz goes on to say in the interview that, “Kirk is working class; Picard is an aristocrat. Kirk is a passionate fighter for justice; Picard is a cerebral philosopher.”

The quotes quickly made the social media rounds and prompted Shatner to respond. In a tweet, Shatner claims that “Star Trek” was not political and to put such labels on interstellar characters is “silly.”

How maverick cancer treatments are suppressed by the mainstream

Mainstream medicine plays very dirty indeed to defend its near-monopoly on cancer treatment, leaving a long trail of promising cancer treatments lying ignored and suppressed in its wake. By way of illustration, Dr Stanislaw Burzynski may be on the verge of a hard-fought breakthrough for his antineoplaston treatment – and his struggles offer an object lesson about the trials in store for another promising therapy, Gc-MAF.

Beijing had better pay attention.

5 Reasons I Lost $9,000 On An iPhone Game

If you've watched television recently, you've probably noticed that Kate Upton's tits really want you to play a smartphone game called Game Of War: Fire Age. That ad campaign cost approximately 40 million dollars, or about 5 million more than the entire development cost of Borderlands 2. They can afford their "it's like Game Of Thrones, but, somehow, even more sexual!" marketing because, as we write this, Game Of War is raking in more than a million dollars each day. Jason Croghan has spent several thousand dollars on it, and he told us all about how games like Fire Age sink their claws into you -- and don't let go.

On Dec. 11, 2001, Dee Torres-Hill, manager of the Prado Daycare Center, told police that a mother, Elizabeth Carroll punched her own 5-year-old daughter in the nose. Investigators would later determined that Carroll didn’t punch her child. However, the damage was already done. Even though Torres-Hill’s allegations were found to have no factual basis, other day care center employees continued to make accusations of child abuse against the parents, which resulted in their 3 children being taken from them, and placed in the custody of an alleged child rapist.

Guess Who Else Called For Diplomatic Solutions To Iran's Nukes?

Just yesterday, Mike Huckabee called President Obama a Nazi. Oh, he didn't use the word Nazi. He just said a deal with Iran would march Israelis "to the door of the ovens." Which means, of course, that he called the sitting President of the United States a Nazi, straight up.

Because he needs the eyeballs to make the primary, and he knows there are enough haters out there to maybe nudge him up into that magical top ten. He knows this because he is a beneficiary of the GOP/Koch microtargeting effort.

But in 2008, Mike Huckabee sang a different tune, one that when considered in the context of his current remarks, would have suggested that he was one of those oven-marchers, too.

In January, 2008 Huckabee wrote an op-ed for Foreign Affairs magazine, striking a far different tone than he is today. The following are key excerpts from that article.

Greek crisis: Lagarde calls for 'significant' debt relief as Tsipras issues early election warning - live updates

The issue of Greece’s unsustainable debt burden has moved back up the agenda, as top officials from the country’s creditors prepare to begin talks on a third bailout.

IMF chief Christine Lagarde has reiterated the Fund’s position, that “significant” debt relief is needed, as part of a new aid deal.

Lagarde also wants to see “sensible fiscal targets” (which must take account of the recent economic turmoil), “structural measures” to reform the Greek economy, and enough funding to cover Athens’ medium-term financing needs.

REVEALED: Cancer industry profits 'locked in' by nagalase molecule injected into humans via vaccines... spurs tumor growth... explains aggressive vaccine push

As Mike Adams recently reported, "A universal cancer cure would destroy the profitability of the highly lucrative cancer industry and collapse the American Cancer Society, hospitals, oncology clinics and pharmaceutical companies that depend on chemotherapy revenues to stay profitable."

This means that anyone moving closer to developing a cure for cancer would be considered an extreme threat to the medical establishment and likely stopped at any cost.

With that in mind, the mysterious deaths and disappearances of several natural health doctors throughout Florida is as suspicious as it is concerning.

If anyone was close to finding a universal cure for cancer and would ensure the public had access to it, it would likely be natural health doctors, or naturopaths, as they're less likely to prescribe drugs and more likely to try and heal the body naturally using holistic medicine and nontoxic approaches.

A "No-Fly Zone" By Any Other Name - The "ISIL-Free Zone" In Syria

By Brandon Turbeville

As the NATO Article 4 meeting concludes with little or no fanfare and no major decisions made regarding a “no-fly zone” over Syria, many onlookers may take the opportunity to sit back in satisfaction that the meeting was concluded without any announcement of further direct military involvement in Syrian affairs. For many, the lackluster meeting was simply more proof that Turkey and the United States will not attempt a frontal assault on the Middle Eastern country.

Unfortunately, however, the big decision was not made at the NATO Article 4 meeting, it was made bilaterally days before between Turkey and the United States...

The Lawless Manipulation of Bullion Markets by Public Authorities
