War Threat Rises As Economy Declines — Paul Craig Roberts,

On the foreign policy front, the hubris and arrogance of America’s self-image as the “exceptional, indispensable” country with hegemonic rights over other countries means that the world is primed for war. Neither Russia nor China will accept the vassalage status accepted by the UK, Germany, France and the rest of Europe, Canada, Japan and Australia. The Wolfowitz Doctrine makes it clear that the price of world peace is the world’s acceptance of Washington’s hegemony.

Therefore, unless the dollar and with it US power collapses or Europe finds the courage to break with Washington and to pursue an independent foreign policy, saying good-bye to NATO, nuclear war is our likely future.

How prisons have become a cash cow for the rich

And it’s not just the phone companies that are getting rich off prisoners’ phone calls.

Thanks to so-called “commissions” that can account for as much as 94 percent of the cost of a call, prison phone contracts have become a major source of revenue for state and local governments all across the country.

These glorified kickbacks have also become a source of revenue for prisons themselves, and they use them to pay for the health care and food services they’re already constitutionally required to provide.

In other words, like pretty much every other case of privatization over the past few decades, the rise of private prison phone contracts has nothing to do with “efficiency” or “improving services” and has everything do with making a quick buck for some crony capitalist with a bunch of Republican friends in Congress.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The privatization of prisons in this country has guaranteed an horrific rise in recidivism (re-offending, going back to prison), which means that the private prisons have become great investment opportunities (for people with the morals of a trout, that is).

Sweden is CLOSING many of its prisons, and why?!? Because the total focus of prison time is rehabilitation, rather than punishment, and reintegration with society when the prisoner is released.

It is a sane, and compassionate model, which is why it is completely ignored by the penal system here in the US.

CRIMINOLOGIST LIKENS BILL AND HILLARY TO “ORDINARY CRIMINALS”

Only one Clinton is running for president, but they are to an almost indescribable extent inseparable. Although Hillary is projecting her own personage and politics in her campaign rhetoric, the two are nevertheless so utterly conjoined in people’s eyes that it is virtually impossible for the good and bad actions of one not to reflect well or not well on the other. We know they are in cahoots. Their moral identity management operations must, therefore, concentrate on the Clinton brand as a whole.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Let's call these people what they really are: industrial-strength sociopaths in pursuit of money and power, by any means necessary, with utterly no moral regard for who gets thrown under the bus, and literally maimed or killed for life in the process.

Will Austerity Be the Straw that Breaks the EU AND the UK?

Very much like the Greeks, the Scots unambiguously voted down austerity. And in very much the same fashion, they face an entity that claims to be more powerful and insists on forcing more austerity down their throats anyway. It seems inevitable that at some point these larger entities will start to crack and break down into smaller pieces. As empires always do. Now, the EU was of course never an empire, there’s just tons of bureaucrats dreaming of that, and Britain is a long-decayed empire.

Larger entities like empires are more powerful only for a limited period of time, for as long as the center can make the periphery benefit; once the center starts feeding off the periphery, the endgame starts. This can take a while, but it will happen, it’s a law of nature. When periphery regions figure out they have nothing to lose by splitting off, they will elect to stand on their own two feet and be their own boss.

And it’s not as if either Scotland or Greece lack a history of fighting for their independence. Just a reminder.

CHINA LAUNCHES ‘MYSTERY OBJECT’ INTO SPACE

In what could ring alarm bells for the Indian security establishment, a report of the United States Department of Defence (DoD), has warned about China “destructive” space programme of stalling or destroying satellites of other countries and how its nuclear-powered submarines now make forays into the Indian Ocean. Released on May 8, the DoD’s annual report to the US Congress on ‘Military and Security Developments Involving the People’s Republic of China 2015’ talks about a mystery ‘object’ that Beijing had launched in space on a ballistic trajectory with a peak altitude above 30,000 km.

DHS LATEST ATTEMPT TO KEEP THE PUBLIC IN FEAR, CLAIM LONE-WOLF ATTACKS COULD HAPPEN ANY DAY NOW

DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson said Sunday that the United States is facing a new era in which a lone-wolf terrorist could “strike at any moment.”

Keeping the American public in fear is what It's all about. We can't have DHS/police budgets dry up right Mr. Johnson?

As a result, Johnson said, the federal government is making a greater effort to engage with state and local law enforcement and encourage them to be “vigilant” about what is happening in their communities. This last statement proves one DHS and our police are one entity and two they're complicit in using another false-flag to scare the public. Remember this is the very same DHS that lied and claimed malls were being targeted by ISIS when their budget was under attack.

Later DHS had to admit there were no credible threats to ANY malls in America.??

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I can believe absolutely nothing anyone in the Federal government says anymore; I expect every one of its representatives to simply lie with impunity, to forward any agenda they fancy at any particular moment.

Republican presidential hopeful Scott Walker leaves for Israel visit

The trip is scheduled to last five days. It is reportedly being paid for by Our American Revival, Walkers political organization; and the Republican Jewish Coalition.

Walker said that he was planning on meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He also is scheduled to meet with members of the Knesset and leaders in the IDF, as well as U.S. ambassador to Israel Daniel Shapiro, according to the New York Times.

A British farmer has rejected a £275million offer for his land from housing developers

A farmer who rejected a £275million offer for his land from housing developers has said he is 'not afraid to stand up to them'.

Robert Worsley said he feared 'country bumpkins' like himself would be 'steamrolled' and that he believed the community was ready to stand together to protect their homes.

The 48-year-old father of two has run his 550-acre, near Haywards Heath, West Sussex, for the last 15 years.

He was approached by agents for housebuilder Mayfield more than two years ago. Since then, the company has contacted Mr Worsley a number of times, trying to persuade him to sell.

Seymour Hersh Succumbs To Disinformation — Paul Craig Roberts

Seymour Hersh has published a long account of the homicide of Osama bin Laden: http://www.lrb.co.uk/v37/n10/seymour-m-hersh/the-killing-of-osama-bin-...
Hersh concludes that the Obama regime’s account of the killing of bin Laden is a total fabrication except for the fact that bin Laden was killed.

I do not believe Hersh’s story for three reasons. One reason is that bin Laden was suffering from disease that no one can survive for a decade. His death was widely reported in 2001. One reason is that even Hersh’s “true” account of “what really happened” is contradicted by eye witnesses and the initial Pakistani TV interviews of eye witnesses. One reason is that Hersh’s story is too convoluted for an assassination raid, a routine event. He exposes lies within lies, indecision within decision, payoffs within payoffs, and reports such a huge number of people with advance knowledge of the raid that it cannot possibly have been kept a secret.

I could add a fourth reason–the US government’s lack of credibility. Washington lies about everything.

Jade Helm double take: Here are ten supposed “conspiracy theories” blasted by the media that turned out to be TRUE

All the talk about the Jade Helm military exercises targeting Texas as “hostile territory” has turned the mainstream media into its usual self: finger-wagging denialists who pretend nothing is ever a threat unless they say so first. Jade Helm is no threat to your safety, they insist, but a tiny measles outbreak in Disneyland that killed no one should have you screaming in total panic. (Did you properly put on your measles paranoia tin foil hat before getting injected at Walgreens?)

Swedish trawler leaves for Gaza in attempt to break naval blockade

The Freedom Flotilla’s first attempt to break the blockade ended in the deaths of nine Turkish activists after Israeli Navy commandos on May 31, 2010 boarded the Mavi Marmara, which claimed to be carrying humanitarian aid, after warning the ship not to sail into waters near the Gaza Strip in circumvention of Israel’s naval blockade of the coastal strip. A second attempt was turned back in October 2012.

Birthright Paves Path to BDS for Some Participants

It happened three years ago as part of the Taglit-Birthright program, which offers young Jews free 10-day trips to Israel. At Masada, 50 American students were on hand...“I have Italian neighbors I grew up next to, and they’re wonderful, but if I had to decide whether to save their lives or the life of one Jew, I would choose to save the Jew. If I had to decide to save 100 non-Jews or one Jew, I would choose the Jew.”

Holocaust Groups Demand More Compensation from Germany

Flashback: The representatives of the children of the Shoah are demanding more than the usual compensation...The Israeli government is also calling on Berlin to make additional payments, even though Jerusalem signed a written promise, after the end of the compensation negotiations, that the Jewish state would "file no further claims against the Federal Republic of Germany."....In addition to compensation for individual survivors, Germany paid €1.5 billion to the Israeli government...But even that money wasn't enough.
Note: Between 2 and 4 hours of research will prove to anyone that the holocau$t as presented never happened.

Germany subsidises sale of four warships to Israel

Saudis Drop US-Made Cluster Bombs in Criminal War on Yemen

Cluster munitions are a particularly hideous weapon of war, designed primarily to kill people indiscriminately, both immediately and for years after they have been dispersed. Anti-personnel cluster munitions, whether delivered by air or artillery, burst in mid-air, spreading submunitions or bomblets that can remain lethal for years, as they have, for examples, in Viet-Nam, the Falklands, Chechnya, Croatia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Georgia, Libya, Syria, and now Yemen.

US fall from virtuous republic to tragic-comic empire described perfectly by Roman historians

*hyperlinks live at source*

The ancient Greek historian, Polybius, celebrated the Roman republic of ~ 150 BC under its constitution with balance of powers among the Senate, two elected consuls, and the general citizens:

“Such being the power that each part has of hampering the others or co-operating with them, their union is adequate to all emergencies, so that it is impossible to find a better political system than this.” - The Histories, Book VI, Section V: On the Roman Constitution at its Prime

Americans and people around the world were equally proud of the United States Constitution as “impossible to find a better political system than this.”

About 100 years after Polybius’ account, Rome’s republic had descended into oligarchic competition for power. Contemporary to Julius Caesar, the Roman historian and government insider Sallust blasted the decline of virtue in government:

Criminologist Likens Bill and Hillary To “Ordinary Criminals”

As a criminologist I see one common thread among the numerous items in the Clintons’ baggage—the unfair exploitation of opportunity for relatively quick pleasures. I also see that they have very little regard for the long-term negative consequences of those decisions. They have low self-control, in other words, just like all “ordinary criminals.” Ordinary criminals are the vast majority of arrestees almost everywhere. You don’t have to be a criminologist to figure it out.

Federal Courts Green Light Police Access to Cellphone Tower Records without a Warrant

As part of the evidence used against Davis, prosecutors presented data showing that Davis’ phone was using cell towers near sites of robberies.

DHS Approves Amnesty Applications Despite Court Order

After President Obama announced his amnesty plan in November of last year, 26 states filed a lawsuit against the federal government for failing to uphold their own immigration laws. The case was taken to federal court, where Judge Andrew Hanen issued an injunction against the plan on February 16th, ordering the federal government to stop their amnesty roll out. Despite the Justice Department’s assurances that the plan had not been implemented, it was later discovered that the Department of Homeland Security had already started to issue 3 year deferrals to over 100,000 illegal aliens.

Last Thursday, Obama’s lawyers admitted to an additional breach of the law.

American Patriotism is Dying a Slow Death

There was a time not too long ago when Americans were so patriotic, it was palpable. You couldn’t throw a rock in any direction without hitting someone with stars and stripes in their eyes. There was a near unanimous belief that we were the shining city upon a hill, and that we were and always would be the greatest nation on Earth. While it was mostly found among conservatives, it did cross party lines to some extant. It was so pervasive that anyone who didn’t believe it was pegged an extremist, or just plain weird.

But now? Not so much. The sentiment is still there I suppose, but you can almost feel it evaporating a little bit every day. The pride Americans feel for their country is slipping away, and is now an undeniable fact.

Tom Goodrich has been a professional writer for the past thirty years. In addition to articles, blogs and movie scripts, Tom has written a dozen books. Kyle Hunt received his Bachelor of Arts in psychology and is best known for founding the Renegade Broadcasting network. Tom and Kyle return to the program to discuss their monumental collaboration, the documentary film Hellstorm, based on Tom’s book and produced by Kyle. In the first hour, we discuss the impetus of the film, which is to expose the mountain of hate, lies and propaganda that was heaped upon the defeated German nation in the time period surrounding WWII, in what is truly the darkest and best kept secret in world history. We look at the relevance of unmasking the accepted history of WWII, a narrative that fundamentally excludes the truth about the horrific slaughter of tens of millions of innocent German civilians by Soviet communists.

The 50kg ingot, engraved with the initials TS and dated 1695 - just three years before Captain Kidd's ship sank - was discovered in a hidden chamber of a wreck by an American diver who has been exploring the bay for 15 years.

If the wreck is confirmed to be Kidd's, it will bring an end to a global search for the privateer's booty that began almost the moment he was hanged for piracy and murder in London 300 years ago.
