American Gestapo
Source: TheDailyBell.com Submitted: 05/22/2015
It was a lifetime ambition for 22-year-old Joseph Rivers to arrive in Los Angeles and become a big name in the music business.

And he nearly made it...until a team of DEA agents put a stop to everything by snatching his life savings without even charging him with a crime.

The aspiring businessman from the outskirts of Detroit had managed to scrape together $16,000 and was finally on the train to Los Angeles when the justice department stepped in, reported the Albuquerque Journal.

Officers found Joseph's thousands of dollars stashed in a bank envelope and questioned him about the origins of the cash.

Despite the fact the officers found no drugs or guns in Joseph's luggage - and failed to charge him with any crime - they took his cash away from him under the civil asset forfeiture program.

Admitted False Flag Terror Events
Source: WashingtonsBlog.com Submitted: 05/21/2015
Every time we look, we find new admissions of false flag terror attacks.

In the following instances, officials in the government which carried out the attack (or seriously proposed an attack) admit to it, either orally, in writing, or through photographs or videos:

(1) Japanese troops set off a small explosion on a train track in 1931, and falsely blamed it on China in order to justify an invasion of Manchuria. This is known as the “Mukden Incident” or the “Manchurian Incident”. The Tokyo International Military Tribunal found: “Several of the participators in the plan, including Hashimoto [a high-ranking Japanese army officer], have on various occasions admitted their part in the plot and have stated that the object of the ‘Incident’ was to afford an excuse for the occupation of Manchuria by the Kwantung Army ….”

Maine Attorney General Janet Mills and some law enforcement lobbyists claim the bill could hinder police from catching child pornographers and other dangerous criminals. Their assertions mirror fear-mongering by law enforcement interests in other states.

The Atomic Bomb Wasn't Necessary To End WW2
Source: Collective-Evolution.com Submitted: 05/09/2015
--We are often taught that yes, use of the atomic bomb was necessary to end the war with Japan at the earliest possible moment, but judging by the statements of many high ranking political and military personnel this is simply not the case.

Here’s what General/President Dwight Eisenhower had to say about it in his 1963 memoir, The White House Years: Mandate for Change, 1953-1956 (pp. 312-313):

“Japan was already defeated and that dropping the bomb was completely unnecessary, and secondly, our country should avoid shocking world opinion by the use of a weapon whose employment was, I thought, no longer mandatory as a measure to save American lives. It was my belief that Japan was, at that very moment, seeking some way to surrender with a minimum loss of “face.”

--Similarly, Admiral Leahy, Chief of Staff to presidents Roosevelt and Truman, later commented:

“It is my opinion that the use of the barbarous weapon at Hiroshima and Nagasaki was of no material assistance in our war against Japan… The Japanese were already defeated and ready to surrender because of the effective sea blockade and the successful bombing with conventional weapons… My own feeling was that in being the first to use it, we had adopted an ethical standard common to the barbarians of the Dark Ages. I was not taught to make war in that fashion, and wars cannot be won by destroying women and children.”
 Read full article »
Carroll Quigley also touches on this topic in his book Tragedy and Hope:

“[The atomic bomb's] contribution to victory was secondary, since it had nothing to do with the victory over Germany and, at most, shortened the war with the Japanese only by weeks.” --Tragedy and Hope, page 848

“…Director of Military Intelligence for the Pacific Theater of War Alfred McCormack, who was probably in as good position as anyone for judging the situation, felt that the Japanese surrender could have been obtained in a few weeks by blockade alone: ‘The Japanese had no longer enough food in stock, and their fuel reserves were practically exhausted. We had begun a secret process of mining all their harbors, which was steadily isolating them from the rest of the world. If we had brought this project to its logical conclusion, the destruction of Japan’s cities with incendiary and other bombs would have been quite unnecessary." --Tragedy and Hope, page 862

Market is Solving Climate Change
Source: DailyBell.com Submitted: 05/03/2015
--Whether or not one believes the world is in peril, fossil fuels are certainly not pleasant. No one enjoys breathing exhaust fumes or having frackers move in across the street. We accept the disadvantages because the fossil fuel cost-benefit calculation outweighs the alternatives.

This is beginning to change, and the way it is changing is a classic illustration of markets beating government to the best answer.

--When an industry can undercut the competition's price by 30% or more, the competition does not have a chance. The established players will survive only as long as they can use political influence to protect their turf. Electric utilities in Hawaii and Arizona, among other places, are desperately throwing up hurdles for homeowners with rooftop solar cells.

These utilities will lose. Technology is rendering their state-protected monopolies worthless. They can either evolve or die.

The Neoconservatives: Tyranny's Fifth Column
Source: TheDailyBell.com Submitted: 04/30/2015
--Today in America, the neoconservative political movement represents a "Fifth Column" for the forces of collectivism. Its intellectuals and activists promote themselves as conservatives who oppose the liberals, but their political philosophy has nothing to do with what is known as American conservatism, which has always stood for a limited constitutional government and free enterprise. These values are anathema to today's "neoconservatives" in the nation's political, literary and scholarly circles.

--The paradigm that neoconservatives have given their lives to is built upon a centralized mega-state running American society from Washington and also, as much as possible, the rest of the world.

--The neoconservatives, thus, represent tyranny's Fifth Column in America. They are deceiving the people into believing that they are genuine conservatives, but like the socialists who were their mentors, they call themselves what they know the people want to hear. These ersatz conservatives have now grown to dominate Washington's think tanks, Wall Street's brokerages and banks, and many major publications and universities. They are highly influential writers, scholars, pundits, publishers, institute heads, bankers and corporate moguls.

The War on the American People

--Certainly, the Constitution's safeguards against police abuse means nothing when government agents can crash through your door, terrorize your children, shoot your dogs, and jail you on any number of trumped of charges, and you have little say in the matter. For instance, San Diego police, responding to a domestic disturbance call on a Sunday morning, showed up at the wrong address, only to shoot the homeowner's 6-year-old service dog in the head.

Rubbing salt in the wound, it's often the unlucky victim of excessive police force who ends up being charged with wrongdoing. Although 16-year-old Thai Gurule was charged with resisting arrest and strangling and assaulting police officers, a circuit judge found that it was actually the three officers who unlawfully stopped, tackled, punched, kneed, tasered and yanked his hair who were at fault. Thankfully, bystander cell phone videos undermined police accounts, which were described as "works of fiction."

--Anthony Holmes, who testified against Burge at the federal trial that led to Burge’s conviction for lying about torture, has said Burge interrogated him in 1973, shocked him three times with a homemade electrical device, and suffocated him with a bag until he confessed to a murder he did not commit.

Holmes spent 30 years in prison for the killing, before he was released, but was unable to sue for damages, because the statute of limitations had long since passed.

--The city already has spent more than $20 million defending Burge, his detectives, and former Mayor Richard M. Daley against lawsuits stemming from torture allegations. The city also has spent approximately $100 million to settle lawsuits stemming from police torture committed by Burge and his detectives in the 1970s and 1980s.

Saudi Connection to 9/11: FBI, Bush and Obama All Covered It Up (Video)

Former head of the Senate intelligence committee and former two-term governor of Florida Bob Graham says that the FBI is covering up knowledge of connections between the Saudi royal family and al-Qaeda.  Watch here »
This information has been known for a long time, but it's finally starting to gain some traction.

Assuming the evidence of Saudi guilt is clear, you really have to ask yourself:

Why would US policy makers, while claiming to "protect us from terrorism," choose to PROTECT those that facilitated the 9/11 attacks? The "cover up" alone makes them an accessory to the crime...but I suspect that "covering up" the Saudi government's guilt is just the tip of the iceberg. (Perhaps our policy makers don't want anyone "pulling the Saudi thread,"for fear of where it will lead back to.)
Monsanto Profits Fall Another 15% In April

Monsanto is continuing to lose profits into the second quarter of 2015, shedding an exceptional 15% profit amid falling GMO seed sales — even more than most experts projected.

In fact, many backers were absolutely certain that Monsanto would regain its footing after losing millions in last year’s fourth quarter. Some economists believed that Monsanto’s ‘tried and true’ strategy of pushing GMO seeds on farmers would sustain them into the first quarter of 2015. Before the latest announcement of financial loss, I predicted that Monsanto would in fact continue to lose money, as both the agricultural industry and consumers at large take a major stand against anything to do with the company:

--Black provides a chilling scenario under which an attempt to withdraw your own money from your bank account could end with a home visit from the cops.

“As you pull into your driveway later there’s an unexpected surprise waiting for you: two police officers would like to have a word with you about your intended withdrawal earlier,” writes Black, who accuses banks of already operating as “unpaid government spies”.

“Do you need to withdraw cash to purchase a used car from a private seller? Or perhaps you are pulling out some emergency cash for a loved one,” writes Mac Slavo.

“Either one of these activities are now considered suspicious and if your cash withdrawal amounts to even a few thousand dollars your bank teller is under a legal requirement to alert officials about your suspected criminal activity. And before you argue that you can’t possibly be a suspect because you have done nothing wrong, consider that even being suspected of being a suspect is now enough to land you on a terrorist watchlist in America.”

5 years from now our lives are going to be different whether we want them to be or not. We’ll either have moved closer to what we want in life (by learning and doing what’s necessary to get us there) or we’ll have moved further away from it (by doing nothing and letting time that we could’ve used pass us by).

Whether you’re 8 or 80, starting today, you either begin the process of moving closer to what you want, or you begin the process of moving away from what you want. Each day is a choice for one or the other.

Making the right choice (making plans for our future) is something we’ve got to decide to do, and often the only thing that stands in our way – the only thing stopping us from making that extremely important decision – is doubt.

The 9/11 Commission Didn’t Believe the Government's Story …Why Should You?

--*The 9/11 Commission chair said the Commission was “set up to fail”

*The Commission’s co-chairs said that the CIA (and likely the White House) “obstructed our investigation”

*9/11 Commissioner Bob Kerrey said that “There are ample reasons to suspect that there may be some alternative to what we outlined in our version . . . We didn’t have access . . . .”

*9/11 Commissioner Timothy Roemer said “We were extremely frustrated with the false statements we were getting”

*9/11 Commissioner Max Cleland resigned from the Commission, stating: “It is a national scandal”; “This investigation is now compromised”; and “One of these days we will have to get the full story because the 9-11 issue is so important to America. But this White House wants to cover it up”. When asked in 2009 if he thought there should be another 9/11 commission, Cleland responded: “There should be about fifteen 9/11 commissions”

*The Senior Counsel to the 9/11 Commission (John Farmer) – who led the 9/11 staff’s inquiry – said “At some level of the government, at some point in time…there was an agreement not to tell the truth about what happened“. He also said “I was shocked at how different the truth was from the way it was described …. The tapes told a radically different story from what had been told to us and the public for two years…. This is not spin. This is not true.”

*No wonder the Co-Chair of the congressional investigation into 9/11 – Bob Graham – and 9/11 Commissioner and former Senator Bob Kerrey are calling for either a “PERMANENT 9/11 commission” or a new 9/11 investigation to get to the bottom of it.

Populists on Track to Ban Debt-Based Money?

Many times free-market proponents will make the argument that debt-free monetary issuance will cause price inflation. This is surely true in the long-term, from what we can tell. Or at least this sort of issuance will cause other distortions in the marketplace. But in a sense it is a proverbial red herring. The real and most dangerous issue is that as modern central banking likely slides into a well-deserved oblivion, the current populist monetary movement is simply going to build back up a centralized monetary system that can then be co-opted. Far better to advocate for free-market money, the kind of system that worked well in the US before the Civil War. Let people themselves figure out what sort of money they want to use.

Last June, the IRS seized $344,405 from the Iowa doctor’s account, alleging that he frequently withdrew cash in amounts under $10,000 to put into safety deposit boxes. Banks have to report any cash transactions of $10,000 or more. Meanwhile, it’s against federal law to “structure” deposits in amounts under $10,000 for the purpose of evading that reporting requirement. Moreover, under civil forfeiture laws, the government does not have to convict or charge people with a crime to take their cash and other valuables.

State Surveillance: Greenwald/Ohanian vs Hayden/Dershowitz (Video)
Source: YouTube.com Submitted: 02/26/2015
It is the debate of the moment. In a risk-filled world, are democracies justified in turning to large-scale state surveillance, at home and abroad, to fight complex and unconventional threats? Or is the emergence of the surveillance state and the awesome powers it derives from information technology a new and pervasive threat to our basic freedoms?  Watch here »
Greenwald is really an extraordinary speaker. The video above should begin with his opening statement at around 25 minutes into the debate.

My guess is that most of you will be happy to know that "our side" won, despite the fact that the "motion" the audience was asked to vote on was very deceptively framed: "Be it resolved state surveillance is a legitimate defense of our freedoms..."

Here are the pre- and post-debate vote results:

Truth in Media: The Origin of ISIS (Video)
Source: BennSwann.com Submitted: 02/25/2015
--In September 2013, American media outlets began reporting that weapons were being given to Syrian rebels. CNN reported that while the weapons are not “American-made,” they were “funded and organized by the CIA.”

However, Swann said that things began to fall apart when less than one year after the U.S. supplied Syrian “freedom fighters” with weapons, those weapons ended up in the hands of ISIS fighters.

Those ISIS fighters came from the group McCain insisted would help the U.S. overthrow Assad: the Free Syrian Army. Swann explained that the army was not only sending the Islamic State weapons, it was also sending them fighters.

--Americans should also be asking, “Why is the U.S. sending $500 million to the Free Syrian Army to fight ISIS when the FSA is one of the biggest suppliers of fighters and weapons to ISIS?” and “Why are we sending new and more powerful weapons to the FSA like anti-aircraft missiles – weapons that we know will be in the hands of ISIS?”

Swann maintained that while the mainstream media will say that ISIS is the “creation of American inaction,” the reality is that they are the “product of direct action.”

It discusses everything from compulsory abortions and adding sterilants to our food supply, to the need for a "planetary regime" that can enforce the eugenicists' policies.

HOW SPIES STOLE THE KEYS TO THE ENCRYPTION CASTLE
Source: The Intercept Submitted: 02/19/2015
--With these stolen encryption keys, intelligence agencies can monitor mobile communications without seeking or receiving approval from telecom companies and foreign governments. Possessing the keys also sidesteps the need to get a warrant or a wiretap, while leaving no trace on the wireless provider’s network that the communications were intercepted. Bulk key theft additionally enables the intelligence agencies to unlock any previously encrypted communications they had already intercepted, but did not yet have the ability to decrypt.

--The Mobile Handset Exploitation Team (MHET), whose existence has never before been disclosed, was formed in April 2010 to target vulnerabilities in cellphones. One of its main missions was to covertly penetrate computer networks of corporations that manufacture SIM cards, as well as those of wireless network providers. The team included operatives from both GCHQ and the NSA.

--TOP-SECRET GCHQ documents reveal that the intelligence agencies accessed the email and Facebook accounts of engineers and other employees of major telecom corporations and SIM card manufacturers in an effort to secretly obtain information that could give them access to millions of encryption keys. They did this by utilizing the NSA’s X-KEYSCORE program, which allowed them access to private emails hosted by the SIM card and mobile companies’ servers, as well as those of major tech corporations, including Yahoo and Google.

--On January 17, 2014, President Barack Obama gave a major address on the NSA spying scandal. “The bottom line is that people around the world, regardless of their nationality, should know that the United States is not spying on ordinary people who don’t threaten our national security and that we take their privacy concerns into account in our policies and procedures,” he said.

The monitoring of the lawful communications of employees of major international corporations shows that such statements by Obama, other U.S. officials and British leaders — that they only intercept and monitor the communications of known or suspected criminals or terrorists — were untrue.

Russian researchers expose breakthrough U.S. spying program

Feb 16 (Reuters) - The U.S. National Security Agency has figured out how to hide spying software deep within hard drives made by Western Digital, Seagate, Toshiba and other top manufacturers, giving the agency the means to eavesdrop on the majority of the world's computers, according to cyber researchers and former operatives.

That long-sought and closely guarded ability was part of a cluster of spying programs discovered by Kaspersky Lab, the Moscow-based security software maker that has exposed a series of Western cyberespionage operations.

Wall Street Pays Bankers to Work in Government
Source: NewRepublic.com Submitted: 02/13/2015
--These payments are routine at major banks, several of which have explicit policies, found in filings with the SEC, outlining automatic awards for executives who rotate into government. Goldman Sachs offers “a lump sum cash payment” for government service, for example.

--“It fuels the revolving door between banks and the government,” said Michael Smallberg, an investigator for the Project On Government Oversight (POGO), whose 2013 report detailed these types of compensation agreements. The average executive branch salary is substantially less than these millions in awards, so the bonuses effectively supplement the lower pay, raising questions about who the government officials actually work for.

New dietary guidelines may downplay cholesterol risks
Source: FoxNews.com Submitted: 02/11/2015
--For decades, the government has warned against diets high in cholesterol. But now many nutritionists believe that cholesterol intake may not significantly impact cholesterol blood levels or increase the risk of heart disease in healthy adults, according to the Washington Post.

In December, the advisory panel said in its preliminary recommendations that cholesterol is no longer "considered a nutrient of concern for overconsumption." That would be a change from previous guidelines, which said Americans eat too much cholesterol. This follows increasing medical research showing how much cholesterol is in your bloodstream is more complicated than once thought, and depends more on the kinds of fats that you eat. Medical groups have moved away from specific targets for cholesterol in the diet in recent years.

It's about time. Now if they'd just top demonizing "saturated fat," we'd really be getting somewhere. (Who knows how long that might take.)

On the topic of "taking a while," here is a study from 1991, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, of an 88-year-old man who ate 25 boiled eggs per day for at least 15 years, yet his body adapted to maintain "normal plasma cholesterol."

Dr. Rowen: Measles Spread by those Vaccinated
Source: VaccineImpact.com Submitted: 02/10/2015
Worried about measles? If you are vaccinated, you should be. If you are my age, and were lucky enough to get wild measles, you needn’t worry at all.

Measles has been quite stubborn to be wiped out. In China, in one province, 99% of children are vaccinated but measles runs strong.

You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure that one out. Clearly measles vaccine doesn’t work as advertised. In fact, in our own country, outbreak after outbreak has occurred in what has been called a fully vaccinated population. (See: A measles outbreak at a college with a prematriculation immunization requirement. Am J Public Health. 1991 Mar ;81(3):360-4. PMID:1994745.)

I wrote long ago that we are setting up the younger generation for a potential calamity. See, vaccines give you plastic immunity. They build up only one line of your immune system, the antibody system, and put the main immune system (cellular immunity) to sleep. You need both for fully developed immunity.

Vaccine immunity has been shown to wane with time. And sadly, current measles outbreaks are being blamed on parents who refuse to give immune damaging vaccines to their children, when Chinese and American data shows otherwise.

Good article, I only wish there were references for each of the "controversial" claims. For instance, when I first read that about 70% of the people who contracted Polio never even knew they had it, only 25 percent experienced flu-like symptoms that went away within less than a week, and only about one half of 1 percent (1 out of 200) experienced more severe symptoms like paralysis (and within that tiny group 90 - 98 percent recovered), I was shocked. Based on the horror stories about Polio that I'd heard, I would have expected statistics that were far worse than this. But, in this case, even the CDC admits the aforementioned. http://www.cdc.gov/polio/about/
Police Supporter Changes His Tune After Bogus Arrest
Source: TheFreeThoughtProject.com Submitted: 02/05/2015
--As a point of clarification, it is important to state the difference between hating cops and holding police accountable.

Those of us who hold police accountable are often referred to as “cop haters” and “anti-cop.” Police officers are human beings, they are our brothers and sisters, mothers, fathers, and sons and daughters. To blindly hate a person because of a badge is irresponsible as well as dangerous. However, equally irresponsible and dangerous is to blindly apologize for criminals and psychopaths because of that same badge.
