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

A professor at the University of Memphis suggested that the Charleston shooter was not mentally ill but rather just another example of “white people acting how they’re conditioned to act.” Assistant professor of sociology

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.

Famous Rothschild Banking Dynasty Facing Fraud Charges In France

One of Europe’s wealthiest bankers faces questioning for fraud in France as part of a years-long case that accuses him of defrauding retirees.

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:

Tennessee Train Derailment: 5,000 Residents Evacuated From Maryville

More than 5,000 residents were evacuated after a freight train carrying a "highly flammable and toxic gas" partly derailed and caught fire overnight just outside Knoxville, Tennessee, officials said.

We can give Israel billions with which to make war on their neighbors, but can't afford to keep the tracks in good repair!

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...

To him, your celebration is a sham.”

Today, we received a letter from the city’s attorneys claiming that fulfilling our request would cost $79,229.09.

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

The major golf organizations are likely to want a mulligan after a shamelessly tepid response to Donald Trump's racist remarks about Mexican immigrants.
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.

Leaked: What’s in Obama’s trade deal

POLITICO has obtained a draft copy of TPP’s intellectual property chapter as it stood on May 11, at the start of the latest negotiating round in Guam. While U.S. trade officials would not confirm the authenticity of the document, they downplayed its importance, emphasizing that the terms of the deal are likely to change significantly as the talks enter their final stages. Those terms are still secret, but the public will get to see them once the twelve TPP nations reach a final agreement and President Obama seeks congressional approval.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These bills are not for the protection of We the People, but protection of corporate profits, period, end of discussion.

"... the most transparent administration in history", MY ASTROLABE!!

The administration is so terrified of public outrage about these terms, that the public is forbidden to see these treaties until they have been successfully concluded.

How's THAT working for you, in terms of an alleged "transparent presidency"?!?

CRUELANDALL-TOO-USUAL

Warning: THIS VIDEO IS VERY, VERY GRAPHIC, AND VIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED:

Jamie, whose mother was addicted to crack cocaine, was adopted when she was 3. At high school, she fell in with a wayward crowd and started drinking and smoking weed. Since she didn't always get along with her adoptive mom, she lived with a close family friend from her church whom she referred to as her sister. One fall day in 2011, they got into a bad fight over their living arrangements. The friend told police that Jamie threw a brick at her, hitting her in the chest, and then banged the brick so hard on the front door that she broke the glass mail chute. Jamie denies the assault—and the police report notes that the brick may not have hit her friend—but she admitted to officers that she was “mad” and “trying to get back in the house.” The Wayne County court gave her two concurrent six-month sentences, for assault and destruction of a building.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Welcome to the world of juvenile detention in the US, a broken system engineered to create a staggering rate of recidivism.

No child should ever be thrown away and forgotten, in a system which absolutely doesn't work.

Enlightened countries, like Sweden, are closing a number of their prisons, because they don't have enough prisoners to house. Also, the sole focus of incarceration in Sweden is rehabilitation, so that when the inmate is released, they will have job skills, and an ability to move forward with their lives.

There are a lot of Jamies in this country; kids who wind up with their lives ruined from one completely stupid mistake.

IF the USA could get men on the moon, this country do far better by its juvenile prisoners, if there is a will to do so.

That was FAST: Yesterday it was gay marriage; Now look who wants “equal rights”

Using the same tactics used by “gay” rights activists, pedophiles have begun to seek similar status arguing their desire for children is a sexual orientation no different than heterosexual or homosexuals.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The difference is that gays have sex by mutual consent of equally mature partners. Pedophiles coerce children into sex, which is usually very painful for the child. That is the difference.

Klan camp: KKK developing ‘a mighty army’ of white nationalists at five day training in July

The Ku Klux Klan is encouraging interested citizens to attend a five-day training camp later this month, where students will study leadership skills intended to help them become better advocates of white supremacy in their own communities.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, this reeks to high heaven of psyops, courtesy of some "alphabet soup" federal agency, desperately attempting to stoke race riots in this country.

And one has to ask the questions: who benefits, and why now?!?

There are a number of observations one needs to consider.

Next year is an election year, and the "well-anointed" Democratic candidate, Hillary Clinton, is drowning in a vortex of self-inflicted baggage. Between the email issue; Benghazi; and the Clinton Foundation's dodgy dealings, and a perverse penchant for awarding arms contracts for money (any country's money), she is dealing with the reality that whatever shred of credibility she may have had with American voters has been well and truly flushed by recent revelations on these issues.

You have a global, and domestic economy in turmoil, with Greece defaulting; Puerto Rico unable to pay its debts; and Ukraine about to default on its IMF loans in about 3 weeks. All of this will affect Americans financially, and in a big way.

You have an administration initially promising "hope and change", which has fundamentally brought that to only the 1% and corporations which have funded it, so that it will continue to do their bidding.

Offshoring/Outsourcing of jobs continues at breakneck speed.

The people who used to earn a decent middle class wage from those manufacturing jobs have been relegated to minimum wage jobs, if they can find them, and we have massive numbers of Americans on pubic assistance, and a huge uptick in child poverty, particularly in the American South.

There are wars, undeclared, but wars nonetheless, which are killing and maiming some of the best and brightest of our youth, all for corporate profit.

So is there some degree of anger among Americans who hoped that voting Obama into office would change their lives for the better, and find themselves now worse off?!? Yes.

But are we being misdirected by this government (as does a magician) away from the fundamental problems which need to be fixed, and toward stirring up race hatred? I would answer yes, and for the following reason.

Race riots would give this administration the excuse they need to suspend the Constitution and Bill of rights, and declare martial law.

And what would that mean, precisely?

That would mean that without First Amendment protections, there could be no legal protests against the brokenness and corruption of our economic system; the continued wars and the new ones most likely to come (most probably against Iran, China, and Russia); and no protests if the draft legislation (National Universal Service Act, H.R 747), which has sitting in committee for two years, gets passed. And BTW, this time, the legislation will not only be coming for our young men, but also our young women as well. There can be no protests against the fast track trade agreements President Obama is crafting, which will provide a sucker punch to the gut to small American businesses.

And who knows?!? Perhaps this administration, after declaring martial law, might just suspend the election well past 2016, so that they can hope that the American people will collectively have such a strong case of ADHD that it will forget about Hillary's baggage, or find another candidate who is more viable.

This is not a time for hatred and race baiting; and please, don't fall for this.

Now is the time for solidarity among all Americans to clearly, calmly call for this administration to fix what is broken; fire the Federal Reserve, which is only another private banking entity, and start making good on their promises to ALL of We the People, not just to the big corporations.

And just to be clear here, I look very much like my European ancestors; but the only race with which I identify.... is the human race.
And that means I understand that I have a personal, moral responsibility to try to lift up all the people I can, in any way that I can.

Record 93.6 Million People Not in American Labor Force, Highest Since 1977

While the White House again is smiling through its teeth and claiming, "the strongest two-year job growth since 2000," a record-setting 93,626,000 Americans did not even participate in the nation’s labor force at all in June 2015.

That means that 93.6 million Americans age 16 or older who were not in the military or institutionalized did not hold down a job and didn't try to find one, either.

This is the largest number of people not working or trying to work in this country since 1977.

XKEYSCORE: NSA’S GOOGLE FOR THE WORLD’S PRIVATE COMMUNICATIONS

One of the National Security Agency’s most powerful tools of mass surveillance makes tracking someone’s Internet usage as easy as entering an email address, and provides no built-in technology to prevent abuse. Today, The Intercept is publishing 48 top-secret and other classified documents about XKEYSCORE dated up to 2013, which shed new light on the breadth, depth and functionality of this critical spy system — one of the largest releases yet of documents provided by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden.

COP WHO TORTURED HANDCUFFED MAN HAD PRIOR RECORD OF ATTACKING PEOPLE

In 2009 Colorado police officer Mark Magness broke an innocent man's arm during an illegal fireworks investigation. Magness pleaded guilty but the police department didn't fire him. Now that a video has been released that shows officer Magness horrifically torturing a handcuffed man who was also tied to a chair in December 2014, the department might be wondering if they made the wrong decision to keep Magness on the force.

The man, who is now fairly agitated after being assaulted while in handcuffs is thrown into the cell. He then makes a mistake and raises his open hand toward Magness.

At this point, Magness jumps on the man and begins pummeled him. Magness, knowing that his body camera is recording this abuse, continues to yell out, “Stop Resisting!” throughout the abuse in an attempt to justify his torturous ways.
It gets worse from there.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Ah, but you see: THIS is the new normal for police departments in the US.

Training by the IDF makes American cops look at their fellow and sister citizens as though they were Palestinians.

This is how "to protect and serve" is interpreted now.

Calling the police, for ANY ISSUE, can now be hazardous to your health, or the health of your family and pets.

Please, just be smart and don't do it.

US ADMITS PAYING TERRORISTS FOR SERVICES RENDERED IN SYRIA

According to the Pentagon, Syrian “rebels” being trained and “vetted” by the United States are receiving “compensation” to the tune of anywhere between $250 to $400 per month to act as America’s proxy forces in the Middle East. Reuters reports that the payment levels were confirmed by the Pentagon and also that the Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter and Navy Commander Elissa Smith both separately admitted the fact that these “new” terrorists are receiving a stipend.

Artificial Intelligence Takes the Battlefield: Who Is Really Running Jade Helm 15?

Who is really going to be running Jade Helm 15?

There is more to the story than just training for martial law in states designated as "hostile states" – already a chilling pretext with overtones of greater federal power that could spiral out of control.

But it seems that it is actually A.I. – artificial intelligence – that is at the helm of an enormous and unprecedented military drill. A scary thought for sure... but what does it really mean?

If analysts are correct, it seems that "JADE" is an acronym for a DARPA-developed A.I. quantum computing technology that produces holographic battlefield simulations and will be in charge of the drill in order to "master the human" domain and predict human response.

Steve Huntley: Anti-Israel movement based on fallacies

It is the Palestinians who have been the obstacle to ending the conflict and establishing a Palestinian state. Only Israel has ever offered a comprehensive two-state proposal, first in 2000 and again in 2008. Both times Israel laid down the parameters of an agreement that every reasonable observer saw as a rational, workable deal.
Note: All settlements are illegal!

“This is just the start…machines will take over our jobs, lives and world.”

That was one man’s reaction to news that a deadly accident during the installation of an assembly line robot at a Volkswagen plant in Germany led to the robot coming to life, grabbing a man and slamming him against a metal plate.

A scene out of the movie Terminator just happened for real. A robot killed a contractor at one of Volkswagen’s production plants in Germany, the automaker said.
