Just Before Round of Negotiations on the Proposed 'Trade in Services Agreement' (TISA), Wikileaks Releases Updated Secret Documents

Today, Wikileaks released a second batch of the most updated draft texts on the proposed TISA, along with substantive analysis, on each of four massive services sectors: Financial Services, Telecommunications Services, Electronic Commerce, and Maritime Transport. This follows on their release yesterday of cross-cutting annexes on Domestic Regulation, the "Movement of Natural Persons," Transparency, and Government Procurement, and the Agenda for next week's negotiations, along with what Wikileaks called the journalistic holy grail: the Core Text of the proposed agreement. The negotiating texts are supposed to remain secret for five years after the deal is finalized or abandoned.

Carving Out Kurdistan - The US/NATO Plan To Break Up Syria and Iraq

By Brandon Turbeville

Over the last few months, Americans who pay attention to current events have been treated to a surprising barrage of praise coming from the mainstream media regarding the Kurdish fighters in Syria.

NEW 'HOSTILE VEHICLE' POLICE TERM FOR RECORDING OR TALKING BACK WILL BRING DHS AND K9'S

The Rhode Island resident was in Philadelphia for the International Society for Technology in Education conference, waiting for a friend in her vehicle. A police officer noticed that she was parked in the wrong direction at the Amtrak 30th St. drop off.

Not satisfied with simply writing a ticket, the cop became verbally abusive. Perhaps he was agitated at being filmed, or enraged at the audacity of a person who dared to say the street signage was poor.

The cop had enough and radioed in a “hostile vehicle” call, which prompted eight other officers, a K-9 unit and Homeland Security to arrive.

What the Philly cop really broadcast is he encountered terrorists and possible explosives inside a car!

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Absoflippinglutely unbelievable!!

The only thing this person needed was an understanding of the fact that she was parked in the wrong direction, and that could have been given gently enough.

But to lie to your precinct about what had really gone on here... totally unforgivable.

Official List of LAZIEST States in America, Where Does Yours Rank?

It really doesn’t take much to stay physically active these days, and you don’t have to go to the gym every other day to stay fit, either.
A 10-minute bike ride after work every day would be more than sufficient to do the trick.
But with busy lifestyles, families, and work, more and more Americans seem to be having trouble finding the time and energy to exercise properly.

Professor: White People Are Conditioned to Commit Mass Murder Like in Charleston

Zandria Robinson — whose Twitter account is promoted on the school’s official website — posted a tweet following the Charleston shooting suggesting that the killer’s actions were a result of his whiteness: "waits for thinkpieces about how more mental health services could prevent white people from acting how they’re conditioned to act"

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The university just fired this obvious racist.

July 4: Liberty and Justice for all? 20,000 dead children daily from preventable poverty as .01% demand war and debt in a world of plenty

*hyperlinks/videos live at source*

“Crimes against humanity” include any of the following acts committed as part of a widespread or systematic attack directed against any civilian population, with knowledge of the attack:
murder;
extermination;
enslavement;...
the crime of apartheid;
other inhumane acts of a similar character intentionally causing great suffering or serious bodily or mental injury.
- International Criminal Court (ICC)

The US Declaration of Independence is honored for asserting unalienable rights of “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” for each and every human being. The most cruel violation of these cherished ideals is intentional policy for ~20,000 children to die slow, painful, gruesome deaths from preventable poverty each and every day.

Full documentation of all poverty facts is here; main points:

BP Oil Spill: $18.7 Billion Fine a Mere 2% of It’s Enormous $929 Billion Revenue

Remember the Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion that killed 11 people and dumped some 4 million barrels of oil into the Gulf a few years ago?

Well now the company has been ordered to pay the largest environmental fine in the nation’s history at $18.7 billion dollars, the final settlement to be divvied up among the Gulf states who suffered most in the oil spill’s wake.

Sure, $18.7 billion sounds like a lot of money even these days, but check out this chart comparing it to the company's total revenue and gross profits...

Civil Forfeiture Now Requires A Criminal Conviction In Montana And New Mexico

Enabled by civil forfeiture laws, police can seize and keep property without the government ever filing criminal charges. Innocent Americans actually must prove their own innocence in court if they ever hope to regain their property. Local, state and federal law enforcement agencies routinely seize property and pad their budgets with forfeiture revenue. Outlets as diverse as The New Yorker and Last Week Tonight with John Oliver have detailed this travesty of justice.

Donald Trump: Only rich people should be allowed to play golf

But then again, golf has always been a bigoted sport. And still is.

That joint statement issued Wednesday by the LPGA, PGA Tour, PGA of America and USGA -- who are all connected to Trump via tournaments -- insisted the organizations don't share Trump's inflammatory views on immigrants.

VA: Worker's response to vet is unacceptable

Iraq war veteran Chris Dorsey figured that no one would believe he had been turned away from a VA clinic when he sought an appointment for post-traumatic stress disorder.

So when he went on Tuesday to another facility, the VA Oakwood, Georgia, Community Based Outpatient Clinic, he flipped on his smartphone camera.

On the video, Dorsey is heard waiting patiently in line for more than 5 minutes. When he reaches the check-in counter, he informs the desk he needs a transfer from the Athens, Georgia, VA system and an appointment.

The response?

"We're not accepting any new patients — not this clinic," the VA employee behind the desk says, without providing any extra information, assistance or follow-on guidance for treatment.

According to Dorsey, his previous experience, getting turned away at the VA clinic in Lawrenceville, Georgia, prompted him to bring his camera to the Oakwood facility.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is an outrage against our Vets.

As much as I detest wars, because I understand that they are primarily for corporate profit, our Vets need to be taken care of with the best standard of medical care possible, and I mean, Dick Cheney-level care.

This should have NEVER happened to this Vet or any other.

Tunisia Shooter Trained in LIBYA

Investigators now believe that it is ‘likely’ that the shooter, who took the lives of at least 39 people at a Tunisian holiday resort, trained in neighbouring Libya.

Yes, that would be the same Libya that was subjected to a ‘humanitarian intervention‘, which, far from saving people, turned a functioning sovereign state into a failed state quite literally overnight. Gaddafi’s regime has been seen as a ‘beacon of light’ compared with the state of affairs in Libya today.
