'The Fosters' Brings Family Drama 'Up to Date'

DAVID LAMBERT, JAKE T. AUSTIN, TERI POLO, SHERRI SAUM, CIERRA RAMIREZ Care for some social engineering with your entertainment, or how 2% now make the rules for 98%. Somehow, I missed the massive popular outcry demanding that multi-racial homosexual "families" become the new societal norm. Thankfully, Hollywood Jews (at ABC-Disney) and homosexuals have anticipated the need for non-Jews and non-gays to eschew their racial identity and nuclear families. http://henrymakow.com/2014/08/Bringing-family-drama-up-to-date.html

Jewish Ethnic Networking

aa-Jews - is it good for the jews Kagan’s arrival on the Supreme Court is a sort of official coming out party for the new elite. It’s been there for quite some time, but the Kagan nomination is an in-your-face-demonstration of the power of Jewish ethnic networking at the highest levels of government. And the first thing one notices is that the new elite has no compunctions about nominating someone for the Supreme Court even though she has no real qualifications. So much for the principles of merit and inclusion: Inclusion does not apply to WASPs now that they have been deposed. And the principle of merit can now be safely discarded in favor of ethnic networking. As I noted previously, This is a favorite aspect of contemporary Jewish self-conception - the idea that Jews replaced WASPs because they are smarter and work harder. But this leads to the ultimate irony: Kagan is remarkably unqualified to be a Supreme Court Justice in terms of the usual standards: judicial experience, academic publications, or even courtroom experience. Rather, all the evidence is that Kagan owes her impending confirmation to her Jewish ethnic connections. http://www.theoccidentalobserver.net/2014/08/facebooks-sheryl-sandberg-and-jewish-networking/

Ferguson: Ten Days That Shook the Country

aa-Ferguson - police pointing weapons Much has been said about the shocking "militarization" of the police, and how this seemed to many like a provocation: police in Ferguson were encased in armor that one veteran remarked was heavier than anything he wore in Iraq. And now the cry has gone up: demilitarize the police! Take away their MRAPs, their forest camouflage, and all the paraphernalia of intimidation that accompanies them into battle. Rep. Alan Grayson introduced legislation, shortly before Ferguson exploded, that would have ended the Pentagon program which funneled this gear into local police departments, but it was voted down. Several newer versions are in the works, and a good thing too, but this is attacking the symptoms rather than the disease. The disease is imperialism, otherwise known as US foreign policy: the underlying condition is the American Empire, an international regime of terror and exploitation which cannot be expected to treat its own citizens much better than it treats its overseas subjects. How on earth did we ever expect otherwise? http://original.antiwar.com/justin/2014/08/19/ferguson-ten-days-that-shook-the-country/

Ukraine Crisis Continues

aa-Ukraine - making safe for the IMF As English is the world language and as the European press follows the lead of the American presstitutes, the propaganda war is stacked against Russia (and China). Russian and Chinese are not world languages. Indeed, these languages are difficult for others to learn and are not well known outside the countries themselves. The Western media follows Washington’s lead, not Moscow’s or Beijing’s. As facts are not relevant to the outcome, Moscow and Beijing are in a losing situation in the propaganda war. http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2014/08/20/ukraine-crisis-continues-paul-craig-roberts/

Russia Continues to Strengthen Ties With Germany and China

aa-Vladimir Putin and Angela Merkel The picture being painted in the West is that the ruble is basically the weakest currency in the world. Think about what you have read in the Western media about the collapse in the ruble because of Ukraine and Western sanctions against Russia. But one of the signs of how weak or strong a country is is its currency. And if you look at the ruble in terms of the euro, guess what? The euro is in much worse shape than the ruble. The fact that the Russians have just announced that they are letting the ruble float is more evidence that Russia and China are serious about forming a monetary alliance, and I maintain that Germany will be part of that alliance. It has also been reported recently that the West is very fearful of a German, Russian, Chinese alliance, and that is exactly what it appears we are getting. Also, these sanctions against Russia are really hurting the Baltic States. This means the European countries are going to have to figure out how to help these countries. This is at the same time that Italy, Greece, Spain, Portugal, and others continue to suffer economically. http://kingworldnews.com/kingworldnews/KWN_DailyWeb/Entries/2014/8/19_Russia_Continue_To_Strengthen_Ties_With_Germany_%26_China.html

Is Ferguson America's Future?

aa-Ferguson - 8-19-14 Decades ago, U.S. newspapers, which used to publish the race of both victims of crime and perpetrators, decided to stop doing so. They felt that this was the kind of news people have no need to know. These conflicting visions are not exclusive to race. Many liberals share Sharpton's vision, while many black folks move out of home communities to escape the scourge of crime. Indeed, if Ferguson in the North County is a racist enclave, why did so many African-Americans move there from overwhelmingly black North St. Louis? https://www.creators.com/conservative/pat-buchanan/is-ferguson-our-future-.html

Are the Dollar and Equities Ready to Crash?

aa-dollar - falling like dominos The Fed hasn't made the world a better place with its interventions. It has created moral hazard, encouraged the formation of asset bubbles that eventually pop (leaving economic messes), widened the wealth inequality gap to record levels, discouraged savings and investment, severely penalized retirees on fixed incomes, encouraged spending, funded massive government deficit spending by monetizing the debts, lengthened the recession and likely reduced the number of jobs that would have been created if the economy had been allowed to take its normal course. Eventually the Fed's policy interventions will also have created debilitating, widespread consumer inflation, the "cruelest tax" against the poor and middle classes. http://batr.org/negotium/082014.html

Why the Left is Obsessed With Race

aa-race - race mixed couples For years they kept it under wraps by accusing anyone who mentioned the topic of being a "racist." Simultaneously they concealed their own intent toward topics regarding race by giving them pleasant names. But now the leftist agenda stands revealed as it becomes clear that their policy is exclusively racial, and aims to replace the American white population with a third-world group. But this is not new. Leftist movements since the Enlightenment have sought to obliterate national boundaries and make people "citizens of the world." Leftists for decades have advocated world government and the free movement of citizens. Under its most tyrannical dictators, the Soviet Union expanded its multicultural policy to include not just non-Christian religions (Christianity was demonized) but other races. The pursuit of racial equality, a proxy for racial co-mingling, has been a leftist policy since the birth of leftism. Why is the left obsessed with race? We know they speak in code because we have seen how duplicitous their acts of the past have been. Their coding about race disguises another agenda which they hope to use their race policy to achieve, which is the reversal of natural selection so that there can be no social standards or other impediments to the freely raging ego. http://alternative-right.blogspot.com/2014/08/why-left-is-obsessed-with-race.html

This is Your Recovery and This is Your Recovery Without Drugs

aa-banksters - w uncle sam on wall street We had a choice. We could have bitten the bullet in 2008 and accepted the consequences of decades of decadence, frivolity, materialism, delusion and debt accumulation. A steep sharp depression which would have purged the system of debt and punishment of those who created the disaster would have ensued. The masses would have suffered, but the rich and powerful bankers would have suffered the most. Today, the economy would be revived, saving and investing would be generating needed capital for expansion, and banks would be doing what they are supposed to do - lending money to businesses and individuals. Instead, the Wall Street bankers won the battle and continue to pillage and loot the national wealth while impoverishing the masses. The arrogance, hubris and contempt for morality displayed by the ruling class is breathtaking to behold. They think they are untouchable and impervious to norms followed by the rest of society. They may have won the opening battle, but will lose the war. Discontent among the masses grows by the day. The critical thinking citizens are growing restless and angry. They are beginning to grasp the true enemy. The system has been captured by a few malevolent men. When the stock, bond and housing bubbles all implode simultaneously, all hell will break loose in this country. It will make Ferguson, Missouri look like a walk in the park. I wonder if the occupants of the Eccles building in Washington DC will get out alive. http://www.theburningplatform.com/2014/08/18/this-is-your-recovery-and-this-is-your-recovery-without-drugs/

Putting America Last

aa-immigration - obamagration good one Our own people here at home are hurting right now. With no manufacturing base our economy and national purpose are like a rudderless ship yet instead of making a plan to get America spiritually and physically back on its feet, the politicians are fawning over a large potential new voter block to take under their wing. Last century our leaders inspired us with an optimistic vision of America to build dams and skyscrapers and bridges-today cynical politicians and their retinue of lobbyist barnacles see us only as serfs who need to be ruled and as sources of tax revenue for their pet projects and lavish lifestyles. The average American is so hooked into the mainstream narrative of history that it’s hard to even bring up these concepts without quickly being branded all sorts of hateful names in classic Pavlovian fashion. People’s blindness and naïveté can be downright exasperating-it might take 30 minutes of just getting them up to speed on your premises before a relevant conversation about the issues at hand is even possible.

Rebel for Freedom

aa-George Hansen It has been said that there is no sweeter fate than to die as a fogotten foe of a long-dead heresy. Former Congressman George Hansen, whose soul was released from its ailing and enfeebled mortal coil on August 14, suffered the inverse of that benediction: He lived long enough to witness the complete validation of his grimly prophetic warnings about the advent of American totalitarianism - albeit of variety yet to be uniformly imposed on our society. Anybody who read Hansen’s 1979 book To Harass Our People would not be surprised by either the IRS targeting scandal, or the emergence of the fully realized Panopticon surveillance system. Anybody familiar with the abuse Hansen suffered in the U.S. prison system would understand that was has been done in Gitmo and Abu Ghraib is neither novel nor uncommon. http://www.lewrockwell.com/2014/08/william-norman-grigg/rebel-for-freedom/

Back to the Sixties

aa-police - 1960s and today in Ferguson Nixon has imposed a curfew as black protests continue, militarized "police" prowl the streets, and the Black Panthers call for resistance -and, no, we haven’t traveled in a time machine back to the turbulent Sixties. The Nixon in question is Jay Nixon, the liberal Democrat Governor of Missouri, where the black majority town of Ferguson is embroiled in a racially explosive conflict over the police murder of an 18-year-old African-American by a white police officer. And, no, it’s not those Black Panthers - who were long ago neutralized and destroyed by the FBI’s infamous Cointelpro program - it’s the New Black Panther Party, whose role is somewhat more ambiguous. And yet if history never repeats itself exactly, it often comes pretty close. If we look at where we are today, the parallels with the 1960s, modern America’s time of troubles, are too numerous to be missed: http://original.antiwar.com/justin/2014/08/17/back-to-the-sixties/

Why the Casino is Dangerous: There is Nothing Below

aa-casino capitalism So with corporate profit rates off the charts, tepid earnings growth, sky-high actual PE multiples and a central bank pegged interest rate structure that has nowhere to go but up, it is evident that Wall Street stock peddlers like Bianco are doing nothing more than calling the sheep to another slaughter. And a slaughter is what it will be. As shown below, there has been a thunderous collapse in stock market volume since the financial crisis, and trading is down by 60% on the NYSE and 75% on NASDAQ. Where has it gone? Into ETFs and the fast money driven options market, that’s where. And what is the central characteristic of these venues in a market crisis? The answer is lack of liquidity and a violent unwind of the implicit leverage in the massive hedge fund driven market in stock options. http://davidstockmanscontracorner.com/why-the-casino-is-dangerous-there-is-nothing-below/

Ferguson Shooting Shock: Witness Unwittingly Captured on Audio Corroborates Police Story

aa-Ferguson - Michael Brown While Christians, Yazidis, and other minorities are being slaughtered by the Islamic State jihadis in the most brutal of ways, the U.S. media has been obsessed with the Ferguson, Missouri, police’s shooting of teenager Mike Brown.

In the West Respect for Truth No Longer Exists

aa-corporate media The Western media have proved for all to see that the Western media comprises either a collection of ignorant and incompetent fools or a whorehouse that sells war for money. The Western media fell in step with Washington and blamed the downed Malaysian airliner on Russia. No evidence was provided. In its place the media used constant repetition. Washington withheld the evidence that proved that Kiev was responsible. The media’s purpose was not to tell the truth, but to demonize Russia. Now we have the media story of the armored Russian column that allegedly crossed into Ukraine and was destroyed by Ukraine’s rag-tag forces that ISIS would eliminate in a few minutes. British reporters fabricated this story or were handed it by a CIA operative working to build a war narrative. The disreputable BBC hyped the story without investigating. The German media, including Die Welt, blared the story throughout Germany without concern at the absence of any evidence. Reuters news agency, also with no investigation, spread the story. Readers tell me that CNN has been broadcasting the fake story 24/7. Although I cannot stand to watch it, I suspect Fox "news" has also been riding this lame horse hard. Readers tell me that my former newspaper, The Wall Street Journal, which has fallen so low as to be unreadable, also spread the false story. I hope they are wrong. One hates to see the complete despoliation of one’s former habitat. The media story is preposterous for a number of reasons that should be obvious to a normal person. http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2014/08/17/west-respect-truth-longer-exists-paul-craig-roberts/

Globalizing Gaza

Israelis watch bombings of Gaza from Sderot hillside Operation Protective Edge was not merely a military assault on a primarily civilian population. As in its previous "operations" (Cast Lead in 2008-9 and Pillar of Defense in 2012), it was also part of an ongoing assault on international humanitarian law (IHL) by a highly coordinated team of Israeli lawyers, military officers, PR people and politicians, led by (no less) a philosopher of ethics. It is an effort not only to get Israel off the hook for massive violations of human rights and international law, but to help other governments overcome similar constraints when they embark as well on "asymmetrical warfare," "counterinsurgency" and "counter-terrorism" against peoples resisting domination. It is a campaign that Israel calls "lawfare" and had better be taken seriously by us all. http://www.counterpunch.org/2014/08/18/globalizing-gaza/

What if There's a Real War in Ukraine?

aa-Ukraine - Dees Russia and the West are at war - over fruits, veggies, pork and bank loans. The cause is Ukraine, a vast emptiness formerly unknown to the western world, but now deemed a vital national security interest worthy of a risking a very scary war. Economic embargos such as those launched by the US against Russia may seem relatively harmless. They are not. Trade sanctions are a form of strategic warfare that is sometimes followed by bullets and shells. Frighteningly, today, there are senior officials in Washington and Moscow who are actually considering a head on clash in Ukraine between Russian forces and NATO - which is an extension of US military power. http://ericmargolis.com/2014/08/what-if-theres-a-real-war-in-ukraine/

If a "real" war breaks out between NATO/EU/USA and Russia, it will escalate quickly. Russia has been undersestimated by the West, especially the USA. The biggest mistake you can make in war, is underestimate your opponent. The only way NATO/EU/USA can prevail, is to use nukes. They will have to use nukes quickly, or they will find out first hand what happened to Germany. Massive, overwhelming, brutal attacks using blitzkrieg tactics, and NATO is history! The Russians are NOT the Taliban!

How to Deal With the Brainwashed

aa-liberalism ahead turn back now I awoke this morning to the creaking sound of the Western mind closing shut. I felt it squeezing in on me like a car crusher. Public discourse is more controlled and political dissent more squashed than at any point in memory. Try as I may, all the evidence suggests we are on the brink of an ideological Dark Age the likes of which America has never seen. It seems we’re only inches away from living in a world where stating the obvious will be criminalized. Online, the chief enablers of this situation are the smirking young progtards, who are unwilling to even touch any viewpoint that hasn’t been spoon-fed to them in school or beamed into their eyeballs via TV. Their brains have never hatched a single original idea in their lives. They are mere hollow carriers of infectious ideas, not so much Trojan horses as little pink Trojan ponies. The modern young leftist is a weak, wretched, psychotic creature, at once nasty and cowardly. Notice how these bespectacled, bearded nerdlings didn’t have one shred of bravado until they had the full weight of the government, media, and academia on their side. They are the sort of cowards who were terrified to make a peep until it was absolutely risk-free. They are extremely bold-at least behind a keyboard-until directly confronted when there’s no crowd around to protect them. A lone earthworm has more spine than any hundred of them. http://takimag.com/article/how_to_deal_with_the_brainwashed_jim_goad/print#axzz3AlYZKszY

Smoking Mirrors

aa-American ignorance - united we stand w heads in sand good one It looks like we've moved up a stage into critical mass with this Ferguson business. It went on and is probably still going on, past the point where someone higher up in the pecking order should have stepped in and taken over. They let it go on. I see where the governor has now decided to send in other forces. Unmentioned in the mix is the fact that Israeli police advisers have been training the American police for some time. Then we hear that all of the NSA traffic was routed directly to Israel. I haven't been able to decide if they are The Beast of the Apocalypse or the Whore of Babylon or... both, with Godzilla and Mothra thrown in. Many of these police are veterans of American aggression abroad, pumped full of steroids and fear, indoctrinated into the hate and suspicion that now drives them. There are no innocent bystanders, just people that got in the way. http://www.smoking-mirrors.com/#.U_H9Nc9U4-o.email

A USS Liberty Hero’s Passing

aa-USS Liberty Terry Halbardier, who - as a 23-year-old seaman in 1967 - thwarted Israeli attempts to sink the USS Liberty, died on Aug. 11 in Visalia, California. It took the U.S. government 42 years after the attack to recognize Halbardier’s heroism by awarding him the Silver Star, a delay explained by Washington’s determination to downplay Israeli responsibility for the 34 Americans killed and the 174 wounded. On June 8, 1967, during the Six-Day War, the Israeli military attacked the USS Liberty, an American spy ship which had been monitoring Israeli transmissions about the conflict. Intercepted Israeli communications indicated that the goal was to sink the Liberty and leave no survivors. Warplanes and torpedo boats had already killed 34 and wounded 174, when Halbardier slid over the Liberty’s napalm-glazed deck to jury-rig an antenna and get an SOS off to the Sixth Fleet. The Israelis intercepted the SOS and broke off the attack immediately. In effect, Halbardier prevented the massacre of all 294 onboard. Still, the infamy of the attack on the Liberty was twofold. http://original.antiwar.com/mcgovern/2014/08/17/a-uss-liberty-heros-passing/

Missouri Shooting Provokes Mainstream Backlash Against Militarized Police

aa-police - half cop half military good one Libertarian-sympathetic politicians Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich) and Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky) both expressed disgust over the cop-soldier similarities. On Thursday, Paul actually penned a Time piece that explored the origins of the phenomenon. This is miles away from the tough on crime hysteria that used to come from the right. It’s a great reason for optimism. President Barack Obama, for his part, on Thursday offered platitudes about togetherness and rights to free press and expression with which he clearly does not agree. Interestingly, Amash and Paul are both politicians who have pushed back against the American war state (even if it’s not as much as antiwarriors would prefer). If the Ferguson police continue doing everything wrong, as they have, backlash against unarmed people being oppressed by a military-like force may continue. And maybe if this kind of force doesn’t belong in American streets, it doesn’t belong anywhere else either. If a wrecked Iraq, and a warzone in Missouri can somehow provoke optimism, it’s the quiet hope that those against one may learn to be against the other. http://original.antiwar.com/lucy/2014/08/14/missouri-shooting-provokes-mainstream-backlash-against-militarized-police/

Cops Gone Wild

aa-police state - newsweek cover During the past decade, perhaps longer, the federal government has systematically militarized local and state police forces in all 50 states. The police have been trained by federally contracted trainers to regard the American public as the enemy. The police are trained that they must not take the risk of encountering members of the public on a trusting basis, but must regard the public as armed and determined to murder the police. I have observed on a number of occasions fully militarily equipped police training by 30 of them lining up and emptying high capacity magazines at the same target. Like most small towns in America, Doraville, Georgia, population 8,500, has a SWAT team armed with the weapons of the US military. Congress should hold hearings to determine which federal budget was used to train state and local police to murder Americans. America has been at war for 13 years at vast costs against Muslims deemed to be a threat to our safety; yet American police have murdered more Americans than we lost in the Iraq war. http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2014/08/15/cops-gone-wild/

'Anti-Putin' Alliance Fraying: Germany, Slovakia, Greece, Czech Republic Urge End to Russian Sanctions

aa-Russia and US struggle Last week Germany reported that in the second quarter, its GDP declined by 0.2%, worse than Wall Street consensus. This happened a few shorts days after Italy reported a second consecutive decline in its own GDP, becoming the first Europen country to enter a triple-dip recession. What's worse, Europe's slowdown took place before the brunt of Russian sanctions hit. Surely in the third quarter the GDP of Germany, a nation whose exports accounts for 41% of GDP, will be even worse, with whisper numbers of -1% being thrown casually around, but one thing is certain: Europe is about to enter its third recession since the Lehman collapse just as we forecast at the end of 2013, a "triple-dip" which may become an outright depression unless Draghi injects a few trillion in credit money (which will do nothing but delay the inevitable and make it that much worse once the can can no longer be kicked), and unless normal trade ties with Russia are restored. Which means one thing: for Europe to resume the status quo, it needs to break away from the "Western" alliance and the sanctions imposed upon the Kremlin which solely benefit the populist agenda of Washington, and certainly not Europe proper, which it is now quite clear, is far more reliant on Russia than vice versa. it is also something Putin apparently was aware of from the very beginning. And now, that realization is starting to spread to Europe's own countries, which - while the new cold war was only one of rhetoric were perfectly happy to go for the ride - but now that trade war has finally broken out, suddenly increasingly more want out. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-08-16/anti-putin-alliance-fraying-germany-slovenia-greece-czech-republic-urge-end-russian-

50 Years Ago Congress Gave the President a Blank Check for War

aa-Vietnam War - scene Fifty years ago, on August 10, 1964, President Lyndon Johnson signed what is known as the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution. It is a day that should live in infamy. On that day, the President gave himself the power "to take all necessary steps, including the use of armed forces," to fight the spread of communism in Southeast Asia and assist our ally in South Vietnam "in defense of its freedom." Or as former Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara put it decades later, it gave "complete authority to the president to take the nation to war." History has shown that the resolution was built on a foundation of misinformation, fabrication, and willful evasion of the truth. Contrary to what the President claimed, there was no unprovoked "act of aggression" against the American destroyers that were patrolling the Tonkin Gulf, and a second alleged incident never even took place. http://hnn.us/article/156384

How the New Monopoly Capitalism Will Crush You to Smithereens

aa-capitalism - predatory Something wicked has crept into American society, something that many hoped was left back in the dustbins of the 19th century. We’re talking about monopoly, the ogre that screams capitalism run amok. Monopolies, or near-monopolies, as are most common in America, rise up through a lack of competition. When one or a handful of players dominate the marketplace, get ready for higher prices, low-quality products, and crap wages for you and me. Just a few decades ago, this destructive activity would have been illegal. But advocates for small government and faulty market theories successfully drove a complete unraveling of the regulations that used to keep these monsters at bay. The result has been disastrous. Monopolies are back, and they are bigger and nastier than ever. http://www.alternet.org/economy/how-new-monopoly-capitalism-will-crush-you-smithereens?paging=off&current_page=1#bookmark

Greatest Comeback: Nixon, Buchanan, and George Wallace

aa-Richard Nixon - 1968 campaign Patrick Buchanan is the most prominent American who speaks openly of the importance of preserving our historic nation. As he wrote in his 2006 book, State of Emergency, "If we do not get control of our borders, by 2050 Americans of European descent will be a minority in the nation their ancestors created and built," and "should America lose her ethnic-cultural core and become a nation of nations, America will not survive." In 2011, he pointed out in Suicide of a Superpower that as the American population becomes blacker and more Hispanic our international competitiveness will decline. Mr. Buchanan’s latest book, The Greatest Comeback, is about Richard Nixon’s road to the White House after two crushing defeats that should have finished his career as a politician. It is actually more about Mr. Buchanan-his role as confidant and policy adviser-but it throws light on the complex figure of Richard Nixon and is an engaging account of presidential politicking in what was one of modern America’s most turbulent years: 1968. This is not an openly dissident book like some of his others, but it includes insights into the role of race in American politics, and what Mr. Buchanan writes about the third-party candidacy of George Wallace-which could have kept Nixon out of the White House-is especially interesting. http://www.amren.com/features/2014/08/the-greatest-comeback-nixon-buchanan-and-george-wallace/#.U-9sqn-WFv0.email

Rand Paul: We Must Demilitarize the Police

Police Shooting Missouri Why armored vehicles in a Midwestern inner suburb? Why would cops wear camouflage gear against a terrain patterned by convenience stores and beauty parlors? Why are the authorities in Ferguson, Mo. so given to quasi-martial crowd control methods (such as bans on walking on the street) and, per the reporting of Riverfront Times, the firing of tear gas at people in their own yards? ("’This my property!’ he shouted, prompting police to fire a tear gas canister directly at his face.") Why would someone identifying himself as an 82nd Airborne Army veteran, observing the Ferguson police scene, comment that "We rolled lighter than that in an actual warzone"? Olson added, "the dominant visual aspect of the story, however, has been the sight of overpowering police forces confronting unarmed protesters who are seen waving signs or just their hands." How did this happen? http://www.theburningplatform.com/2014/08/15/rand-paul-we-must-demilitarize-the-police/

There are times when Rand Paul says what he wants us to hear,his attitude toward Israel is at best interesting and we now know that Israel provides counter terrorism training for many American police departments,note also that some of the heavy armor has been rolled back in Ferguson,a request by the NAACP?.

Who’s to Blame for the Ferguson Riots?

aa-black thugs When black politicians impose a police state on their "youth" or when black activists ask the armed forces to keep blacks from shooting each other, it goes mostly unnoticed-unlike the frenzy over a white mayor’s "stop and frisk" policy in New York City. Needless to say, the reactions to the police response to the Ferguson riots-because it was ordered by a white police chief-is getting the same treatment as Michael Bloomberg’s "stop and frisk" policy. At Slate, Jamelle Bouie says the police are "treating demonstrators-and Ferguson residents writ large-as a population to occupy, not citizens to protect." When white people are behind it, a robust police response is invasive and threatening. http://www.amren.com/news/2014/08/whos-to-blame-for-the-ferguson-riots/#.U-4LPqI-De8.email

How the Global Financial System Will Collapse

aa-financial disaster - tornado of currency One day out of the blue, the Global Financial System will collapse plunging the world’s economies into a depression for which there is no recovery. The reason for this sudden collapse will be due to a factor that most analysts fail to recognize or understand. While the mainstream media and alternative analyst community focus on the typical economic indicators, monetary system, derivatives and debt markets... the real problem for the world financial system will be the rapid change in the "PERCEPTIONS" of assets by investors and the public. The coming abrupt change in market perceptions of paper assets will force investors to move into physical assets such as gold and silver to protect wealth as best they can. This event will likely occur rather quickly - virtually overnight. http://www.silverdoctors.com/srsrocco-how-the-global-financial-system-will-collapse/

Modern Israel’s Terrorist Roots

aa-Israel - apartheid wall very good one I will state for the record that I think modern Israel was a bad idea from the get-go. Sylvester Stallone couldn’t have scripted a cornier and more predictable sequel to World War II than to relocate European Jews to an area where they are surrounded on all sides by desert peasants whose holy book tells them to hate Jews. Israel’s very existence in the Middle East laid the foundation for a perpetually volatile situation that I suspect will not end well. But the idea that modern Jews are in any way "indigenous" to the Middle East seems dubious to me. I’m not convinced that Jews who are derived from Eastern Europe are genetically "Semitic," but that’s a whole different article. Palestinians, on the other hand, are Semites, whether you like it or not. Whatever way you slice the Jew sandwich, though, it appears that the ancient Hebrews were pioneers at the art of genocide. http://takimag.com/article/modern_israels_terrorist_roots_jim_goad/print#axzz3ATcUXDs6

One Nation Under SWAT: The Militarization of America's Police

aa-police state - good poster Think of it as a different kind of blowback. Even when you fight wars in countries thousands of miles distant, they still have an eerie way of making the long trip home. Take the latest news from Bergen County, New Jersey, one of the richest counties in the country. Its sheriff’s department is getting two mine-resistant ambush-protected vehicles, or MRAPs -- 15 tons of protective equipment -- for a song from the Pentagon. And there’s nothing special in that. The Pentagon has handed out 600 of them for nothing since 2013, with plenty more to come. They’re surplus equipment, mostly from our recent wars, and perhaps they will indeed prove handy for a sheriff fretting about insurgent IEDs (roadside bombs) in New Jersey or elsewhere in the country. When it comes to the up-armoring and militarization of America’s police forces, this is completely run-of-the-mill stuff. http://www.alternet.org/civil-liberties/one-nation-under-swat-militarization-americas-police?paging=off&current_page=1#bookmark

Israel Right or Wrong

aa-Dees - Obama on leash Oren’s call to crush Hamas is particularly ironic as it runs directly contrary to American interests. The US intelligence community believes that the group would likely be succeeded by something far more radical. The media, Congress, and Netanyahu all also connive to ignore the deliberate targeting of civilians to include hospitals, schools and private homes by the IDF, producing massive infrastructure damage and increasing the numbers of dead and wounded. The US media did not report how Israelis watching the bombing from their lawn chairs on a hill near Sderot were photographed cheering and applauding each time a target in Gaza exploded. They were also sharing popcorn and one described the event as "just good fun." Also missing in the discussion is the damage that the conflict does to the United States, which is seen throughout the world as Israel’s puppet, manifested most recently when Washington alone opposed and will presumably veto any United Nations inquiry into possible war crimes connected to the Gaza conflict. America diplomats are supposed to support American interests while the Founding Fathers created an army and navy to defend the United States, not Israel, a fact that seems to have escaped the notice of many in the White House, Congress and in the media. In reality, Washington has no obligation to protect the Netanyahu government in international fora nor is there any treaty obligation to defend Israel or anyone else outside the NATO alliance. Israel is neither an ally nor is its self-defined security a compelling US national interest if one excludes the drumbeat of the domestic lobby that protects it no matter how badly it behaves. http://www.unz.com/pgiraldi/israel-right-or-wrong/

How Israel's Assault on Gaza is One Big Marketing Campaign For Its Weapons Manufacturers

aa-Gaza - building being blown up good one Israeli weapons companies are making a killing off the ongoing assault on Gaza, which has caused over 1,900 Palestinian casualties, most of them civilians. Israel’s arms companies are set to increase their sales abroad and to the Israeli military because their weapons were "successful" in Gaza-a "success" that has come at the cost of thousands of Palestinian lives. Israeli companies are effectively getting global marketing when Palestinians are getting shot at and bombed. In a recent article, Haaretzreporter Shuki Sadeh quoted Barbara Opall-Rome, Israel-based correspondent for the American magazine Defense News, as saying that "for the defense industries this campaign is like drinking a very strong energy drink - it simply gives them tremendous forward momentum. Combat is like the highest seal of approval when it comes to the international markets. What has proven itself in battle is much easier to sell." http://www.alternet.org/world/how-israels-assault-gaza-one-big-marketing-campaign-its-weapons-manufacturers?paging=off&current_page=1#bookmark

Man Easily Crosses U.S.-Mexico Border Dressed as Osama bin Laden

aa-Osama bin Laden - lookalike crossing border I’m not posting this video to drum up fear of terrorism or anything like that. Regular readers know that I think the "war on terror" is a total sham and fraud. I believe the power structure has been intentionally using fear of terrorism to eliminate the civil liberties and freedom of the American public. Washington D.C.’s apathy at the porousness of the U.S.-Mexican border serves as further proof that the entire surveillance state that has been put in place to supposedly stop terrorist attacks has an ulterior motive. As I have maintained over and over, that motive is to protect the government and its oligarch masters from the citizenry itself. It also allows intelligence agencies and others privy to the data to blackmail politicians since they know every single thing they have ever done. The purpose is to permanently consolidate power into a "soft-facist" state in which people are completely controlled and enslaved, yet aren’t even aware of it. Since most of the public would never "step out of line," the purpose of this type of surveillance state is to ruin or control those who might. http://libertyblitzkrieg.com/2014/08/12/video-of-the-day-man-easily-crosses-u-s-mexico-border-dressed-as-osama-bin-laden/

How the U.S. Muzzles Disenting Voices

aa-truth - is the new hate speech The notion that one's country is becoming a ruthless police state becomes clichéd, particularly with a lack of historical context. Extreme totalitarian regimes based on, for example, Marxist fundamentalism and unquestioning loyalty to the Party famously utilized internment and compulsory psychiatry to quell political dissidents and unorthodox speech. Yet in the US and elsewhere, objectively assessing the facts surrounding events such as the key political assassinations of the 1960s, the Oklahoma City Murrah Federal Building bombing, 9/11, or more recent mass-mediated terror events, is tantamount to political heresy and potential justification for state surveillance, interrogation, obligatory "medical" (psychiatric) treatment, and even a sort of asset confiscation in the form of reputational damage and job loss. http://henrymakow.com/2014/08/How-the-US-Muzzles-Disenting-Voices%20.html

The De-Industrialization of America

aa-Dees - outsourcing Although you would never know it from the reports from the U.S. financial press, the poor job prospects that Americans face now rival those of India 30 years ago. American university graduates are employed, if they are employed, not as software engineers and managers but as waitresses and bartenders. They do not make enough to have an independent existence and live at home with their parents. Half of those with student loans cannot service them. Eighteen percent are either in collection or behind in their payments. Another 34% have student loans in deferment or forbearance. Clearly, education was not the answer. Jobs off-shoring, by lowering labor costs and increasing corporate profits, has enriched corporate executives and large shareholders, but the loss of millions of well-paying jobs has made millions of Americans downwardly mobile. In addition, jobs off-shoring has destroyed the growth in consumer demand on which the U.S. economy depends with the result that the economy cannot create enough jobs to keep up with the growth of the labor force. http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2014/08/11/de-industrialization-america/

Networks Showcase Neo-Cons Despite Past Lies

aa-Lindsey Graham - w AIPAC talking points good one Since Obama campaigned to end the Iraq War in 2008, the media presents him as the moderate, perhaps too cautious, voice in opposition to the plethora of neocon fanatics beating the drums for war on CNN, Fox, MSNBC, and Sunday morning news shows on the big three networks. Aside from Iraq, this was illustrated with the media narrative following the Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 crash last month: On the one side is Obama enforcing sanctions on Russia; the other side is John McCain calling for a new Cold War. No other opinion, such as Ron Paul’s, gets heard. McCain, along with neocon Sen. Lindsay Graham, has been the media’s resident war expert on every conflict that has arose since Obama took office. He’s received nearly as much air time the past few years as he did when running for president in 2008. Despite recent polls naming him the least popular senator in the country, he made the rounds on nearly all news shows since Obama made his Iraq announcement last Thursday. http://www.lewrockwell.com/2014/08/jay-stephenson/pro-war-and-hyper-pro-war/

Gaza Homes 'Uninhabitable' as Tens of Thousands Come Back to Rubble

In Gaza City, which has a population of half a million, 20%-25% of the housing stock had been damaged, said Nihad al-Mughni of the engineering department. Mohammed al-Kafarna, the mayor of Beit Hanoun, a northern town which saw fierce fighting and heavy bombardment, said 70% of homes were uninhabitable. "Basically the town is unliveable. There is no power, water or communications. There are not the basics for life," he said. http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/aug/11/damage-gaza-homes-israel-hamas-conflict

U.S. Pillaged, Rothschilds Turn Sights on the Next Grand Prize: Russia

aa-Vladimir Putin - holding gold bar When one utilizes the axiom, "Follow the money," all roads lead to the Rothschilds and their formula of gaining control of a nation’s money supply and then making all the rules. In the process of gaining control of a nation’s money supply, each country’s gold holdings were ransacked, and in the case of the U.S., the then world’s largest silver holdings were also stolen. U.S. Treasury Notes that were specie backed by silver and gold. After the Federal Reserve Act was passed in 1913, the privately owned Federal Reserve bank, began circulating Federal Reserve Notes that were also specie-backed, to circulate alongside U.S. -issued Treasury Notes until the 1930s, when Franklin Delano Roosevelt declared a "bank holiday." The U.S. was forced into bankruptcy by the Rothschild elites, and the banks were reopened under direct control of the Federal Reserve central bank. What was little noticed was that the specie-backing of gold and silver for the Federal Reserve Noted were quietly withdrawn. At the same time, specie backed US Treasury Notes were withdrawn from circulation and destroyed! The Rothschilds will not accept any competition. The first stage of the world’s largest Ponzi scheme succeeded. Next was the removal and eventual suppression of the price of gold, an ongoing activity by central banks. Since the United States has been bled dry of all its gold and silver, and the fiat Federal Reserve Note has just about run its course as the world’s reserve "petrodollar" currency, the next grand prize is Russia. http://www.silverdoctors.com/us-pillaged-rothschilds-turn-sights-on-the-next-grand-prize-russia/

Given the tightly controlled character of the Malaysian media, it appears that the accusation that Kiev shot down MH17 has the imprimatur of the Malaysian state. The U.S. and European media have buried this remarkable report, which refutes the wave of allegations planted by the CIA in international media claiming that Russian president Vladimir Putin was responsible for the destruction of MH17, without presenting any evidence to back up this charge. http://www.opednews.com/articles/Malaysian-press-charges-Uk-by-Alex-Lantier-Government-Corruption_Malaysia-Airlines-Flight-17_Putin_Russia-140809-576.html

Israeli Genocide and Its Willing Accomplices

aa-Zionism - quote on ethnic cleansing Policymakers in the genocidal state run a highly militarized society where citizens and soldiers, criminals and professionals, torturers and sociopaths can and do coexist within the same person. Cold rationality is harnessed to mass murder, technology to massive devastation , language to euphemisms and executioners parade themselves as victims (and vice versa). Moral precepts become debased and supplanted by the ethics of mass murder. Moralists, rabbis and ethical philosophers all join to bless the bombs dropped on hospitals and schools and homes and all living things - even the dead and buried do not rest in peace when the cemeteries are bombed. Rulers, imbued with a genocidal vision, see only military objectives - an oppressed people do not exist - all human existence and institutions in the target areas are to be demolished. The destruction of human life, of Palestinian daily existence has become the ultimate goal of this obscene operation. The practical decision to exterminate Palestinians was conscious, planned and pursued with implacable resolve at the very top and carried out with savage enthusiasm by Israel’s ’citizen army.' http://petras.lahaine.org/?p=1998

Controlling Hollywood’s Message on Gaza

aa-Dees - Hollywood Jackie Mason (an ordained rabbi) is quite clear that these people should suffer professional consequences-that the Jews who run Hollywood should punish celebrities who offend the pro-Israel crowd, specifically mentioning Gomez, Cruz, and Rihanna. "They come from these kinds of anti-Semitic, low-class backgrounds where a Jew is the most disgusting thing in the world to them," Mason answers, according to audio obtained by The Hollywood Reporter. "The ironic thing is that it’s Jewish people who own these Hollywood studios ... And they all hire these people and they depend on them for a living. Every penny they made is made from Jews and they hate every Jew just by nature." Say what?? Jews own the studios and have power to punish Hollywood celebrities who oppose Jewish interests to the point that all of those mentioned by Mason backtracked on their statements? Which implies that these celebrities are afraid that indeed Hollywood Jews are acting as Jews in exerting pressure on them. I guess it’s okay when someone like Mason says it (but not Gary Oldman et al.). Also note the incredible leap from criticizing Israel to supposedly hating all Jews. http://www.theoccidentalobserver.net/2014/08/controlling-hollywoods-message-on-gaza/

Leveling the Playing Field (With Explosives)

aa-automatons Innate inequality-rather than the kind allegedly caused by "racism" that requires an ever-expanding bureaucracy to try and make everything equal again-has been deemed an unthinkable thought precisely because it is so true. To acknowledge its truth would be to tug gently at the one loose thread that unravels their entire rainbow sweater. And that’s why they scream and bark and vow the destruction of anyone who dares to speak it. The world has become Harrison Bergeron in overdrive. The ongoing-and, by design, never-ending-quest for equality provides job security for those who seek to raze the towers of inequality and make the whole world horizontal. They almost exclusively use phantasms such as "equality" and "social justice" as excuses to expand the government and pad their paychecks to help solve this pesky, impertinent, and seemingly insoluble riddle of inequality. Those who profit from this mission cling to the ludicrous notion of innate equality with a cognitive dissonance forged in iron. After all, it justifies their jobs. They’ve seen the Promised Land-in their heads, at least. They may not get there with you, but at least they’ll retire on a fat pension. http://takimag.com/article/leveling_the_playing_field_with_explosives_jim_goad/print#axzz3A6aHlORF

How Did the Suburbs Become the Zip Code From Hell?

aa-suburbs Over the last couple of decades, the ’burbs have ceased to be the haven of upper-middle class Americans. Immigrants have poured in, chasing construction jobs and domestic work. Families priced out of gentrified cities like San Francisco have flocked to the suburbs for cheaper housing. Once-prosperous residents who never thought they would know bankruptcy are caught in a strangling web of debt obligations. Unable to find once-plentiful manufacturing jobs, more and more suburban residents are relegated to crappy service work that strain budgets and obliterates living standards. According to a new report by the Brookings Institution, there are now 16.5 million souls in suburban America eking out an existence below the poverty line, compared to only 13.5 million in cities. Poverty is becoming more concentrated, creating a new blot on the landscape, the suburban slum. The number of poor people living in the suburbs has skyrocketed by 65 percent in the past 14 years-growing twice as fast as urban areas. http://www.alternet.org/economy/how-did-suburbs-become-zip-code-hell?paging=off&current_page=1#bookmark

Washington Threatens the World

aa-American Empire - Uncle Sam giving finger The reality in the Middle East stands in vast contradiction to the stage managed landing of George W. Bush on the US aircraft carrier Abraham Lincoln where Bush declared "Mission Accomplished" on May 1, 2003. The mission that Washington accomplished was to wreck the Middle East and the lives of millions of people and to destroy America’s reputation in the process. Thanks to the demonic neoconservative Bush regime, today America is regarded by the rest of the world as the greatest threat to world peace. The Clinton regime’s attack on Serbia set the pattern. Bush upped the ante with Washington’s naked aggression against Afghanistan, which Washington clothed in Orwellian language-"Operation Enduring Freedom." Washington brought ruin, not freedom, to Afghanistan. After 13 years of blowing up the country, Washington is now withdrawing, the "superpower" having been defeated by a few thousand lightly armed Taliban, but leaving a wasteland behind for which Washington will accept no responsibility. Another source of endless Middle East turmoil is Israel whose theft of Palestine is Washington-enabled. In the middle of Israel’s latest attack on civilians in Gaza, the US Congress passed resolutions in support of Israel’s war crimes and voted hundreds of millions of dollars to pay for Israel’s ammunition. Here we witness Great Moral America 100 percent in support of unambiguous war crimes against essentially defenseless people. http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2014/08/08/washington-threatens-world-paul-craig-roberts/

aa-Obama - power to the bankers If there’s one thing I’ve learned over many years of following the political career of United States’ President Barack Obama it is to never underestimate his false-faced cynicism. Examples could fill volumes. Here I highlight a small number of instances relating to recent, ongoing, and terrible events in the Middle East. http://www.counterpunch.org/2014/08/08/israel-gaza-and-the-false-face-of-barack-obama/#.U-Y3g-urW_A.email

The Long Reach of Vietnam War Deceptions

aa-Vietnam War - scene A half century ago, on Aug. 10, 1964, President Lyndon Johnson signed the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution though he knew its justification was based entirely on deception. Indeed, it was a continuation of a pattern of deception begun with a series of clandestine acts of war against North Vietnam by U.S. forces known as "Oplan 34-A." Oplan 34-A consisted of sabotage and psychological warfare attacks directed against and into North Vietnamese territory. This reality was only brought to light seven bloody years later with the release of the "Pentagon Papers" by courageous whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg. These deceptions, culminating with the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, triggered an unwinnable war fought entirely on false pretenses and further deceptions of the American people until defeat could no longer be postponed. Yet, in addition to the massive loss of life and irreparable wounds to so many participants , along with the enormous economic costs, the other U.S. victim of the Vietnam War was the U.S. Constitution itself. Specifically, it was the Bill of Rights, which, taken together, provide the American people the "right to know." http://original.antiwar.com/Todd_Pierce/2014/08/08/the-long-reach-of-vietnam-war-deceptions/#.U-Y9h1MwGOg.email

A Deadly Strain of PMS

aa-liberalism ahead turn back now You know that one time a month when you’re arguing with a lady friend and she says something that makes your neck recoil in confusion? You’ll stop the fight for a second and think to yourself, "That doesn’t make any sense. What’s this argument really about?" If you’re very brave, you’ll ask her if she’s started bleeding yet, and if you’re really lucky, she’ll shut up because you just hit the nail on the head. The liberal left has PMS. They don’t mean what they say and they’re just yelling for yelling’s sake. We now realize this because every time we solve one of their crises they pshaw the solution and continue the attack from another angle. Their crusade isn’t about getting to the truth. It’s about winning. The whole thing is just sports to them. We are the Yankees fans, they are the Mets fans, and it doesn’t matter which team plays a better game. http://takimag.com/article/a_deadly_strain_of_pms_gavin_mcinnes/print#axzz39jAVBUFx

Masculine Men and Feminine Women Are Happier

aa-manosphere The evidence is mounting (heh): Happy people are people who more closely adhere to the normal expression of biological sex traits and sex roles. Anyone who veers far from the archetype for her sex will experience unhappiness, dissatisfaction, bitterness, and an unrelenting urge to undermine social norms, get back at her dad, and post tumblr pics of her gross body in a fatkini while insisting she’s sexually attractive to hot, studly men. If you’re a man, the more you look and act like a masculine man, the more satisfied you are with yourself. If you’re a woman, the more you look and act like a feminine woman, the more satisfied you are with yourself. It’s as simple as that. And that’s why it drives the rejects on the archipelago of misfit mutants crazy with resentment. It’s a beautiful truth so elegant in its simplicity and unassailable in its parsimony that there’s no way for the degenerates to escape its merciless judgment. http://heartiste.wordpress.com/2014/08/05/masculine-men-and-feminine-women-are-happier/

And the Next Country to Join the Renminbi Fan Club Is

aa-China - renminbi A few years ago, the definition of "strong banking" was Switzerland; today, however, Switzerland’s reputation for banking is nowhere near where it once was. But eager to restore some of its former banking luster, Switzerland has taken note of this and is rapidly positioning itself to become a major center of European RMB trade. Continuing to believe that the dollar is going to maintain its global reserve status is now not only foolish, but financially hazardous. To countries, businesses and individuals.

Sneaking Back Into Iraq

aa-mission accomplished - Obama and Iraq Has anyone noticed how our numerous post-Iraq military interventions - actual and proposed - have nearly always been the result of a sudden "humanitarian crisis"? The War Party - facing popular skepticism, indeed, outright opposition from the American people, who were lied into a war that should never have been fought - is now forced to come up with an "emergency" rationale, which poses the issue in terms of "if we don’t intervene immediately thousands will die." They did it in Libya, where we were told if we didn’t intervene on the side of the crazed jihadist "rebels" as many as a hundred thousand would be slaughtered by Gaddafi’s "mercenaries" in Benghazi. That turned out to be complete BS, to put it charitably, but the War Party got their way - and you see the results in the headlines. They tried the same act in Syria, on several occasions, coming up with a cock-and-bull story about Bashar al-Assad’s alleged use of "poison gas" against the crazed jihadist rebels who were terrorizing the country - but that turned out to be yet another fabricated scenario, and the American people didn’t fall for it anyway. Instead of listening to the usual clowns who pass themselves off as "foreign policy experts," Americans rose up and said "No! No! A thousand times NO!" Our politically savvy President knew when he was beaten and so passed the Syrian hot potato to Congress - which backed down with amazing speed. Now the War Party is trying the same stunt again, this time in - of all places! - Iraq. And it looks like they’ve succeeded, at least for the moment. Or maybe not: the fog of war is already spreading and obscuring our view of facts on the ground. http://original.antiwar.com/justin/2014/08/07/sneaking-back-into-iraq/

It was Putin's Missile!

aa-media - corporate media pro war And here’s the spin war verdict: the current Malaysia Airlines tragedy - the second in four months - is "terrorism" perpetrated by "pro-Russian separatists", armed by Russia, and Vladimir Putin is the main culprit. End of story. Anyone who believes otherwise, shut up. Why? Because the CIA said so. Because Hillary "We came, we saw, he died" Clinton said so. Because batshit crazy Samantha "R2P" Power said so - thundering at the UN, everything duly printed by the neo-con infested Washington Post. Because Anglo-American corporate media - from CNN to Fox (who tried to buy Time Warner, which owns CNN) - said so. Because the President of the United States (POTUS) said so. And mostly because Kiev had vociferously said so in the first place. Right off the bat they were all lined up - the invariably hysterical reams of "experts" of the "US intelligence community" literally foaming at their palatial mouths at "evil" Russia and "evil" Putin; intel "experts" who could not identify a convoy of gleaming white Toyotas crossing the Iraqi desert to take Mosul. And yet they have already sentenced they don’t need to look any further, instantly solving the MH17 riddle. http://www.lewrockwell.com/2014/08/no_author/it-was-putins-missile/

Politicians, Pundits and Journalists Who Should Go Away

aa-John McCain - at Wailing Wall Leaving Obama aside as we are stuck with him as president until 2016 and also noting Chairman Mao’s observation that a journey of a thousand miles begins with one step, I would like to propose a modest list of individuals that I never want to see or hear from again. I am sure readers will have many additional candidates. I am not suggesting that anyone be turned over to the Lord High Executioner but many recent political and journalistic celebrities might best serve the nation if they move to a rural county, disconnect their telephones, and begin raising bird dogs or orchids to pass the time. I would, of course, start with McCain and Graham, two gentlemen who never have enough of war even though the conflicts initiated by the United States since 2001 have turned out to be an unmitigated series of disasters and a money pit as well. Nor are we Americans safer, quite the contrary. They are backed up by the Cheneys, husband "I had other priorities" Vietnam draft avoider Dick, wife Lynne, and daughter Liz, who most recently have been cheerleading the military option to straighten things out in Iraq, having apparently forgotten that Dick and friends tried that once and it didn’t work. http://www.unz.com/article/i-also-have-a-little-list/

The Difference Between Trading and Investing

aa-casino capitalism It's an open question whether a market that is heavily dependent on perception management and unprecedented intervention by central banks,opaque dark pools/shadow banking and digital trading robots run by major players, and gamed corporate profit/loss statements can support traditional long-term investments without exposing investors to largely invisible systemic risks. From this perspective, investing in oneself and enterprises one actively controls may be the only legitimate deployment of capital that qualifies as an investment in the traditional sense--that is, capital isn't being risked in rigged gambling halls and Ponzi schemes. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-08-08/brief-note-difference-between-trading-and-investing

Will Putin Realize That Russia Holds the Cards?

aa-Vladimir Putin and Obama The amazing thing about Russia finding herself on the defensive about sanctions is that Russia, not Washington or the impotent EU, holds all the cards. Putin can bring down the economies of Europe and throw all of Europe into political and economic chaos simply by turning off the energy supply. Putin would not have to turn off the energy supply for very long before Europe tells Washington good-bye and comes to terms with Russia. The longer Putin waits, the longer Europe has to prepare against Russia’s best weapon that can be used to peacefully resolve the conflict that Washington has orchestrated. Washington’s aggressive moves against Russia will not stop until Putin realizes that he, not Washington, holds the cards, and plays them. The world has had enough of Washington, its constant lies, its constant wars, and its bullying. Putin would do well to spend a few hours with Belisarius, Justinian the Great’s great general. "When I treat with my enemies," Belisarius said, "I am more accustomed to give than to receive counsel; but I hold in one hand inevitable ruin, in the other peace and freedom." That is precisely the position that Vladimir Putin is in with regard to Europe. In one hand he holds the ruin of Europe. In the other peace and freedom in the relations between Russia and Europe. http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2014/08/06/will-putin-realize-russia-holds-cards-paul-craig-roberts/

The Path to a New 1914? How America Chose War After 9/11

aa-World War I Historically, nations have responded to terrorist threats and attacks with a combination of police action and political negotiation, while military action has played only a minor role. Voices were raised in the United States calling for a global cooperative effort of this kind to combat al-Qaeda. President Bush opted instead for a policy that the United States alone among nations could have conceivably undertaken: global military action not only against al-Qaeda but against any regime in the world that supported international terrorism. The president announced to Congress that he would "make no distinction between the terrorists who commit these acts and those who harbor them." By calling the campaign a "war," the administration summoned into action the immense, technically revolutionized, post-Cold War American military machine, which had lacked any clear enemy for over a decade. And by identifying the target as generic "terrorism," rather than as al-Qaeda or any other group or list of groups, the administration licensed military operations anywhere in the world. In the ensuing months, the Bush administration continued to expand the aims and means of the war. The overthrow of governments - "regime change" - was established as a means for advancing the new policies. The president divided regimes into two categories - those "with us" and those "against us." Vice President Cheney estimated that al-Qaeda was active in 60 countries. http://www.unz.com/article/the-path-to-a-new-1914/

Spying, Lying, and Torture

aa-1984 - freedumbville great one In some respects, the recent admission by CIA Director John Brennan that his agents and his lawyers have been spying on the senators whose job it is to monitor the agency should come as no surprise. The agency’s job is to steal and keep secrets, and implicit in those tasks, Brennan would no doubt argue, is lying. Yet in another respect, this may very well be a smoking gun in the now substantial case against President Barack Obama that alleges that much of his official behavior has manifested lawlessness and incompetence. It is hard to believe that the president did not know about this but not hard to believe he would look the other way. http://original.antiwar.com/andrew-p-napolitano/2014/08/06/spying-lying-and-torture/#.U-N12fwKDEY.email

How Israel Uses Its Own Civilians as Human Shields While Assaulting Gaza

aa-Israel - democracy a myth Like so many Zionist accusations against Palestinian society ("They only understand force," "They teach their children to hate," "They never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity") the human shields slander is a projection. Israel is the most militarized society on earth, with soldiers and military installations honeycombed throughout its civil society. With full military conscription for all men and women and reserve duty required for all Jews until they reach their 40s, Jewish Israelis alternate constantly between the role of civilian and soldier, blurring the line between the two. Within one of Tel Aviv’s most densely populated neighborhoods sits Ha’Kirya, the army’s headquarters, a gigantic complex of monolithic buildings that house the offices where attacks on Gaza are planned. The uniformed officers and soldiers who work inside take lunch in the cafes and shop in the malls surrounding their offices, embedding themselves among the civilian population. A military base is nestled in the middle of the campus of Haifa University while Hebrew and Tel Aviv Universities offer military officers free tuition, encouraging their enrollment and allowing them to carry weapons on campus. It is hard to find a henhouse, flophouse, or fieldhouse anywhere in Israel without some kind of military presence. http://www.alternet.org/world/how-israel-used-its-own-civilians-human-shields-while-assaulting-gaza?paging=off&current_page=1#bookmark

Politicians are Psychopaths

aa-psychopathy The effort to hold on to the comfortable belief that our leaders are not horrid people lasts for a while, but then that belief comes into direct conflict with the fact of the leaders doing something horrid. This is followed by propaganda which is followed by justification which is then followed by the belief that the horrid event was necessary and that the leaders are not really horrid people. This is the weary intellectual treadmill of modern politics. We want to believe that the leaders of the world are not the thieving, grasping, psychopathic murderers that their actions show them to be, but are, in fact, the concerned, wise, and just statesmen that they pretend to be. But the whole round and round from happy political illusion to stark political reality and back to illusion again is exhausting in the long run, and is an effort best left to the young. http://www.lewrockwell.com/2014/08/davydd-price/politicians-are-psychopaths/

In an unprecedented expression of solidarity with the Palestinian people, and especially at this time with the Palestinians in Gaza, a group of over 100 prominent scholars and librarians have called for the boycott of Israeli academic institutions As reasons for their action, scholars cited the siege of Gaza and “the occupation and dispossession in East Jerusalem, the Naqab (Negev), and the West Bank; the construction of walls and fences around the Palestinian population, the curtailment of Palestinian freedom of movement and education, and the house demolitions”. They added that these violations have “very long histories and no apparent end in sight”.

U.S. Evacuation in Libya Shows Ill Effects of U.S. Interventionism

aa-map of Libya The American foreign policy elite should learn something from the recent humiliating evacuation of the U.S. embassy in Tripoli, Libya - amid the chaos of tribal civil war in that country - but probably won’t. Since World War II, this bipartisan elite has thumbed its nose at the traditional U.S. foreign policy of strategic independence and military restraint overseas, which was initiated by the nation’s founders and lasted through the most of the republic’s history. Then the second great world conflagration demonstrated to the elite that new interdependence among nations somehow made that policy obsolete. Really? Although advances in transportation and communication have made the world more interdependent in some senses after World War II, nuclear weapons, nationalism, and the proliferation of small weapons have made cross-border wars much less frequent. And if they are a threat to U.S. security at all - which most aren’t - cross-border wars are more dangerous than now much more frequent internal civil conflicts. http://original.antiwar.com/eland/2014/08/05/us-evacuation-in-libya-shows-ill-effects-of-us-interventionism/#.U-InkXVkQYM.email

Washington’s Perfect Storm of Policy Failure: On the Folly of Massive Money Printing and America’s Collapsing Imperium

aa-American Empire - statue of liberty and military The American Imperium is collapsing. There is blowback everywhere. The wreckage of prior policy mistakes from our interventionist foreign policy is coming home to roost. The Ukraine is one area at ground zero for that. But second, monetary central planning is now reaching a dead-end. It is inflating the third financial bubble of the century and the Fed is now clueless as to how it will manage to unwind the massive balance sheet expansion it has been undertaken. And third, the fiscal doomsday machine continues to crank on. Washington is ignoring the fact that we are six years into a business cycle expansion and we are still running massive deficits and there is no cushion for the next upset that comes to the economy. Now, why is all of this important? Because I think the foreign policy failures - the collapse of the American Imperium as I call it - is at the center of this, and it will push all of these things in the wrong direction. We are now becoming much more aggressive in our foreign policy than ever before. We can’t afford it by any means. And the potential for this to create black swans to roil or dislocate these very fragile markets that have been created by this massive central bank balance sheet expansion - it all makes what is happening in the Ukraine, or in the Middle East in Gaza, or in the collapse of Iraq, even more dangerous in terms of what it could trigger. So we are in a real pickle here and I think it is compounding by the day. http://davidstockmanscontracorner.com/washingtons-perfect-storm-of-policy-failure-on-the-folly-of-massive-money-printing-and-americas-collapsing-imperium/

Loony Left and Rabid Right Common Ground

aa-Republicrats - dude wheres my party The establishment thrives on creating conditions of chaos. The goal is to train the public to accept that only government or mainstream institutions can offer provisional solutions. Qualified and restricted systems of maintaining order and social stability seldom improves the plight of the average person, but works well at extending the reach and dominance of rigid compliance. Coercion, either overt or passive, channels the necessary behavioral acquiescence. Any political ideology finds itself up against this context. Therefore, promoting division and extreme dislike between groups and among varied political orientations is a key and necessary element in preserving the elitist controlled organism of collective perception. http://www.batr.org/terror/080414.html

The Typical Household, Now Worth a Third Less

aa-American Dream - good cartoon Economic inequality in the United States has been receiving a lot of attention. But it’s not merely an issue of the rich getting richer. The typical American household has been getting poorer, too. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/07/27/business/the-typical-household-now-worth-a-third-less.html?_r=0

Gaza Everywhere

aa-multicultural - US map The American remnant, a First World population, faces waves of Third World people claiming the right to live among us. They cannot adopt First World standards but will, if admitted in large numbers, reproduce the Third World, effectively destroying the First World nation that is their host. What had been a civilization becomes a warlord-dominated, individualistic/emotional, corrupt and disordered society. Most advanced nations face the same choice Israel does, but instead of fighting back, allow the Third World to pour across their borders. http://www.amren.com/news/2014/08/gaza-everywhere/#.U-DjGtz1QPI.email

The Rise of the Petroyuan and the Slow Erosion of Dollar Hegemony

aa-dollar - falling like dominos For seventy years, one of the critical foundations of American power has been the dollar’s standing as the world’s most important currency. For the last forty years, a pillar of dollar primacy has been the greenback’s dominant role in international energy markets. Today, China is leveraging its rise as an economic power, and as the most important incremental market for hydrocarbon exporters in the Persian Gulf and the former Soviet Union to circumscribe dollar dominance in global energy - with potentially profound ramifications for America’s strategic position. http://original.antiwar.com/Leveretts/2014/08/04/the-rise-of-the-petroyuan-and-the-slowerosion-of-dollarhegemony/#.U-Dj_qd8sgk.email

Paul Craig Roberts on Capitalism, Snowden, Regulations, Impeachment, Net Neutrality, GMOs

aa-Republicrats - two parties one ideology This is like a gangster state capitalism. Now all capitalism, like all human arrangements, has problems and disadvantages and the purpose of regulation is to make the system work for more people rather than for few people. So when you take the regulation out of the system, which is what the liberals and the conservatives and the republicans and the democrats have done, together, then the system doesn't work for anybody, but the handful that have got the power and that are rigging it. http://www.opednews.com/articles/Ttranscript-Paul-Craig-Ro-by-Rob-Kall-Capitalism_Gmo_Paul-Craig-Roberts_Regulations-140804-801.html
