Netanyahu says committed to Palestinian state

"I remain committed to the idea that the only way we can achieve a lasting peace is through the concept of two states for two peoples -- a demilitarised Palestinian state that recognises the Jewish nation state of Israel," he said.
Note: How about a demilitarized Jewish state that recognizes the Palestinian State.....all of it!

Netanyahu's idea of peace talks

The latest twist in Tel Aviv's efforts to legitimise the illegal settlement enterprise is an initiative proposed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, which appears - on the surface - to favour the peace process. But as the EU and other Western countries increase pressure on Israel, its latest deception simply circumvents global demands for an end to its 48-year occupation of Palestinian territory.

America Sells Israel 32,100 High-Tech Bombs and Missiles. 3 Guesses Why...

So on whom is Israel planning to "recur" these particular missiles?
Quite possibly, on Iran. After all, if we were only talking about Israel replenishing exhausted tonnage, well, the 50 two-and-a-half-ton bunker busters Israel is buying weigh more than 100 tons altogether. Even if "replenishment" explained 50 of the bombs, missiles, and other equipment that Israel is buying... there's still 32,050 other bombs to be accounted for.
Note: Israel also asked for an additional 4.5 billion in aid. Had enough yet!

Countdown: Obama has 1 month to strike deal with Iran

In recent days, Republicans have highlighted the continuing imprisonment of three Americans in Iran, as The Washington Post's Jason Rezaian.

House Speaker John Boehner’s (R-Ohio) office issued a statement on Thursday urging the administration to tie the final nuclear deal with their release.

“Negotiations with Iran — and any good nuclear deal — should include the safe return of all of them,” the statement said.

But the Obama administration doesn’t just have to worry about Congress: it also faces pressure from within the “P5+1” — which consists of the U.S., the United Kingdom, China, France, and Russia plus Germany.

According to reports, US State Department officials also described the negotiations as most substantive and toughest since a mutual understanding between Tehran and the six world powers was reached in Switzerland back in April.

Dear World: Netanyahu Is Calling You Stupid

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is grabbing positive headlines these days: first with reports that he wants to go back to negotiations with the Palestinians, and second with reports that he has expressed support for the Arab Peace Initiative (API). Or more accurately, he told EU Foreign Minister Federica Mogherini that he wants negotiations with the Palestinians over settlement blocs, and he told the press that he likes the "general idea" of better relations between Israel in the Arab world. Or, in essence, twice recently Netanyahu called the world stupid.

US pension funds to divest from Israel boycotters

Demand Full Impeachment of Ginny Burdick and Jeff Kruse

Measure 91 aimed to end prohibition of marijuana for adults over 21 and end a war on the civil liberties of many. This was the intent of the 56% of voters. Senator Burdick and Kruse are using this monumental opportunity for the state to further unethical treatment of medical patients and perpetuate the failed War On Drugs in a manner inconsistent with their voter base. It time we take action together and stand against this tyranny.

Today's Salisbury Beach (*MA) Sea Temperature

Today's Salisbury Beach sea temperature is 48 °F.
Statistics for 30 May (1981–2005) – mean: 11.4 °C, range: 9.7 °C to 14.2 °C

Sunny with deceptively warm air temperatures at Salisbury Beach, yet the sea remains very cold (9 °C). Despite the weather (windchill 24 °C), surfers will need a quality winter wetsuit, a neoprene hood, gloves and boots.

Cashless Control Grid: 25% of Australians Would Get a Chip Implanted in Them to Pay for Stuff

‘Tommorowland’ film review: Earth transformed only after .01%’s continuous doom-porn ended

*hyperlinks/video live at source*

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NSkF56CyYGE

Tommorland contrasts a future of Earth as the wonderful place we all see possible from a soul-crushing present with literally no future.

Like today, the story’s general public is in an Emperor’s New Clothes trance, blind to a hidden government continuously broadcasting doom-porn.

This .01% secret government is trans-dimensional, manipulates future timelines, and has technology capable of easily solving all economic problems. However, the “leadership” of this .01% are literal psychopaths (and here): a public face of “caring for the future” while actively killing anyone working for truth and free will.

The .01% shadow government keeps their hidden history secret with all available technology, constantly lying and manipulating the general public. The lies are meant to continue until an endgame that apparently kills most of the 99.99%.

5 facts about the minimum wage

The Los Angeles City Council this week moved to raise the city’s local minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2020, joining a growing list of states, cities and other localities in moving beyond the federal minimum of $7.25. While the idea of raising the minimum wage is broadly popular, efforts to do so at the national level have stalled repeatedly in Congress, leading advocates to focus more of their efforts on cities and states.

Greville Janner - How "People in High Places" Covered Up for a Parliamentary Pedophile

The Lord Greville Janner affair shows no signs of winding down despite the best efforts by the authorities to kick it into the long grass. Each week brings new revelations about the former President of the British Board of Jewish Deputies, who is suspected of at least 22 cases of child sexual abuse.

Up until now the scrutiny has mainly focused on how, although said to be too ill with dementia to be tried, the 86-year-old founder of the Holocaust Education Trust was able to take part in parliamentary debates, collect a hundred thousand pounds in expenses, and was compus mentus enough to sign over his property deeds to his children thereby putting them out of range of any damages litigation.
