Greece – the Way Out

The Greek people are being penalized for having had the audacity to elect a socialist government – How dare they! – That’s the verdict.

What the troika is doing to Greece these days is the pinnacle of financial terrorism.It is economic waterboarding. It is blackmailing of the first degree. These people are neoliberal fascists, putting the Greek government before a dilemma – ‘either you present us with an acceptable list of austerities, or we will prepare one for you’ – literally. An austerity plan you better accept, lest you may default and being expulsed from the European monetary union and maybe even the EU. That is their threat. That is what Brussels does to a brother; to one of theirs. There is not a shred of solidarity left in this miss-called ‘Union’. This ‘Union’ doesn’t deserve existing.

Gettysburg park yanks Confederate flag items from bookstore

Visitors to Gettysburg National Military Park will no longer be able to purchase numerous pieces of Confederate flag merchandise from its bookstore.

National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis said Thursday that “stand-alone depictions of Confederate flags have no place in park stores,” a local affiliate reported.

The decision to pull the merchandise comes in the wake of a the shooting death of nine black members of Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in South Carolina. Dylann Storm, 21, was arrested June 18 in connection with the killings, which took place the previous night.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is just getting silly. Confederate flags have no place in a park commemorating one of the great battles of the Civil War?!? P.C. run amok! Yes, Dylann posed with a picture of the confederate flag. We also had the flags of Apartheid South Africa and Rhodesia on his jacket, but nobody is banning those flags!

This whole Confederate flag issue is an attack on the First Amendment itself, to trick Americans into accepting the idea that because some people see the Confederate flag as a symbol of oppression, that justifies taking it away from everyone, including those who see it as symbolizing something else, such as family history or the right to secede from tyrannical government.

And if you fall for it; if you go along with the idea that something offensive to a minority justifies banning it for all, it will not stop with the Confederate flag. Politicians will start to ban anything they can find a few people to claim they are offended by, and there are already too many people living in this nation whose entire sense of self-worth is built on always being offended by something!

Lone Wolf Racist Terror Backfires

The callow Dylann Roof’s stated ambition was to set off a race war. The fact it has so far done the exact opposite is what makes this case such a teachable moment. No one seems to have predicted the scene of Governor Haley surrounded by a cluster of Southern Strategy Republican office holders calling for the Confederate flag to be removed. In her first race for governor, she said the flag “was not something that is racist;” it was “a tradition that people feel proud of.” Suddenly, the flag was “a deeply offensive symbol.”

7 Things You Didn’t Know About the Civil War: “There were over 3,000 BLACK slave owners who lived in the south”

With all of the controversy surrounding the Confederate Flag, and with Apple Inc. now removing all civil war related games from their app offerings, we have reached a point where propaganda has begun to outweigh the real truth.

The following seven points from Daniel Ameduri of Future Money Trends is an effort to clear up some of the erroneous information being disseminated by agenda-driven politicos and activists.

An Illustrated Guide to Civil Asset Forfeiture

This cheerfully drawn comic from the Daily Signal does an excellent job highlighting the insanity of civil asset forfeiture. It begins with a quintessentially American premise: a young person setting out on his own, all wordly possessions in hand, to start a new life as an adult. Far be it from me to spoil the rest.

Vast Majority of NY Gun Owners Refuse to Comply with SAFE Act

Not long after the Sandy Hook shooting in 2012, the gun grabbers crawled out of the woodwork, demanding new legislation to hinder gun ownership for millions of law-abiding Americans (as they are wont to do after every mass shooting). One of the measures that managed to be signed into law as a result of these bleating cries, was the NY SAFE Act, which restricts magazine capacities, demands background checks for ammunition, and forces gun owners to register their “assault rifles,” which are broadly defined. These are a just a few of the draconian demands found in the SAFE Act.

But more than two years after the SAFE Act was established, the residents of New York have largely failed to comply on a massive scale. Apparently, the State Police have been reluctant to disclose the number of registrations, despite numerous Freedom of Information requests, and understandably so. Earlier this week they finally fessed up to their dismal numbers.

Sean Hannity: Ban Rap Albums Alongside Confederate Flag

Sean Hannity raised his hand on his radio show Thursday to ask a question regarding the decision of many major retailers to stop selling the Confederate flag: "Can you still buy a Jay Z CD at Walmart? Does the music department at Sears have any Ludacris albums? Can I download 50 Cent on Amazon?"

As Media Matters points out, the Fox News and conservative talk show host proceeded to guide his listeners down an outrageous slope equating a symbol of slavery, oppression and treason to the periodically problematic lyrics that appear in hip-hop songs.

SC Cop Fired for Confederate Flag Boxer Shorts Pic, While Other Cops Kill Innocent People and Nothing Happens

What’s insulting about this has nothing to do with the fact that everyone’s eyeballs have now been assaulted with this cheesy picture of North Charleston Police Sgt. Shannon Dildine in his boxers.

What’s insulting about this is that, because it fits the political agenda with the timing of the Charleston shooting and the divide-and-conquer plot being run against us all, they actually fired this guy over this picture. The media is taking lots of time to make the North Charleston PD look like a real stand-up organization for taking action on this (what a great PR move, by the way). A huge deal is being made out of this in the mainstream press.

Meanwhile, we live in a country where on average more than two people a day are killed by police, regardless of race, creed, age, religion, sex, etc. So many other officers who commit so much more egregious acts are never suspended or even reprimanded, let alone actually fired.

Military is OK with Confederate flag — for now

The Confederate cause is deeply ingrained in American military history, making the country's current debate over whether to retire the "rebel flag" all the more pertinent to service members who view it as important to their heritage — important enough to display in their workplaces or even as tattoos.

New Black Panthers Chair: It’s Time to Kill the Slave Masters

One of the things that has so distinguished the tragedy in Charleston from events in places like Ferguson and Baltimore is the peaceful way people have dealt with their grief and anger.

Specifically, we’d like to know what she thinks about the bill her husband signed as Governor of Arkansas that dedicated one of the stars on the state’s flag to the Confederacy.

The text from the bill reads, “The blue star above the word ‘ARKANSAS’ is to commemorate the Confederate States of America”:

US To Begin Invasion of Syria

By Tony Cartalucci

Unbeknownst to the general public, their elected politicians do not create the policy that binds their national destiny domestically or within the arena of geopolitics. Instead, corporate-financier funded think tanks do – teams of unelected policymakers which transcend elections, and which produce papers that then become the foundation of legislation rubber stamped by “legislators,” as well as the enumerated talking points repeated ad naseum by the corporate-media.

Such a policy paper has been recently written by the notorious US policy think-tank, the Brookings Institution, titled, “Deconstructing Syria: Towards a regionalized strategy for a confederal country.” ...

The Daily 202: Marco Rubio is playing to win The Sheldon Adelson Primary

— Marco Rubio is playing to win The Sheldon Adelson Primary. The Florida senator, who has relentlessly sought the billionaire casino mogul’s backing for 2016, co-sponsored a bill yesterday afternoon to ban online gaming. It is not only Adelson’s top legislative priority, it could significantly boost his company’s bottom line. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), another presidential hopeful who has assiduously courted Adelson over their shared hawkishness on foreign policy, is the lead Republican author on the legislation for a second year in a row.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Get over it, folks; the American Presidency, Congress, and State officials are all purchased, and put to "good use" to fulfill the agendas of the monied.

We the People no longer have any control about who actually represents us, at any level, any more. In the current political climate, the voice, concerns, and real issues of people who work for a living ... have become completely irrelevant to those who have been gifted with their positions by the large corporations which now dictate all aspects of governance.

Trans-Pacific Partnership: Obama Sides With the Wrong People for the Wrong Reasons at the Wrong Time

By siding with the Republicans and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell in passing "fast-track" trade authority as a step toward signing the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), President Barack Obama triangulated against labor unions, environmentalists, consumer activists, and the base of his party.

The 60-38 vote in the Senate to give the president (and the next president) more executive power to negotiate trade agreements, which garnered the support of thirteen Democratic Senators, followed months of bitter in-fighting among Democrats.

President Obama not only expended his own "political capital" by pushing for fast-track but that of the Democratic Party too. He had a clear choice: either side with workers, environmentalists, consumers, and progressives - or side with Wall Street, Big Pharma, Walmart, and the Koch Brothers.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Obama, and every single Congressional representative who voted for this, have committed treason against this country, and have demonstrated, painfully clearly,just who they truly are; slaves to the international corporate community, which has bought their collective fealty with cold hard cash.

GOVERNMENT OFFICIAL ADMITS DELETING TEXT MESSAGES AFTER EX-IM BANK FOIA REQUEST

In today's consequence-less world - where only the poor are punished - news that a top official at a controversial U.S. export finance agency deleted text messages sent within days of the 2014 midterm elections after a watchdog group filed an open records request for the messages, will come as no surprise whatsoever. The 'excuse' given by Ex-Im Bank's chief of staff Scott Schloegel - because as we saw yesterday, there is no accountability - he "deleted, by mistake, the messages on my phone for the period in question." Most transparent administration ever...

With funding for the Ex-Im Bank is set to expire at the end of the month, and Congressional Republicans indicating that that they will allow it to do so, effectively shutting down the agency, the controversial crony capitalism creating agency will continue to make headlines. But as Free Beacon reports, the details may never actually come out as to just what this group did...

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The complete lack of responsibility is simply embedded in the culture of the Federal government at this point.

Nothing anyone says who allegedly represents you can ever be taken seriously anymore by any thinking American, except, perhaps, for the odd weather report which turns out to be accurate by accident!

Washington Cathedral dean on Confederate flags: ‘It is time to take those windows out’

The dean of Washington National Cathedral has called for two stained-glass windows featuring Confederate flags to be taken down from the Gothic edifice, in yet another instance of institutions reconsidering countless tributes to the Southern cause.

“It is time to take those windows out,” said the Very Rev. Gary Hall in a Thursday (June 25) announcement.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I find it amazing that Charlie Hebdo can publish intentionally offensive and insulting cartoons about Muslims and Christians and it is called free speech, but there is a demand to erase the flag of Southern Secession because somewhere (we are told) someone's feeling might be hurt over events that happened before any of us were born.

I have to ask how many of the politicians that are screaming about the "racist" Confederate flag proudly display the flag of apartheid Israel in their office.

Supreme Court Strikes Down Gay Marriage Bans in All 50 States

In a landmark ruling, the Supreme Court of the United States has ruled that state bans on same-sex marriage are unconstitutional.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I find it hard to believe that so many people scream about the need for population control and yet fail to realize humans have a natural built-in population control mechanism in homosexuality. Careful study of history clearly shows that as social stress increases, the per-capita incidence of homosexuality increases. Maybe instead of "tolerating" the gays we should realize that they are indispensable to the long term survival of the human race!

On the Charleston Tragedy

We condemn any and all such acts of savagery, and call for swift and severe punishment for anyone who is found guilty of having any part in this heinous crime.

At the same time, we are deeply saddened to watch the disgusting attempts by some media representatives, self-appointed “historians”, activists, and even elected officials to exploit this national tragedy by using it for political purposes, and as an excuse to advance their hate-filled agenda, by calling for an all-out war on the Confederate flag and our Confederate heritage, beginning with the removal of the flag from a Veterans’ memorial on the Capitol grounds in South Carolina, over 100 miles away. These blatant attempts to incite violence and further divide the citizens of this country are despicable, and The Virginia Flaggers call on all those of Southern ancestry to resist any and all endeavors to use this tragedy as a platform to erase our history and attack the honor of our Confederate veterans.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Now that Obama has his fast-track authority, we will see this whole push to ban the Confederate flag fade away.

'ISIS' Grenoble beheading: Live updates

Here's some more quotes from that extraordinary interview the suspected killer's wife gave on French radio earlier. She said: "I don't know what happened. Have they arrested him? He left for work at seven this morning. He does deliveries. He didn't come home between 12pm and 2pm, and I was waiting for him. My sister-in-law said 'put on the TV'. And then she began to cry. My heart stopped. We have a normal family life. He goes to work, he comes back. We are normal Muslims. We do Ramadan. We have three children and a normal family. Who do I call who can give me more information because I don't understand."

It appears to have been confirmed that the beheading victim found at the Air Products gas factory was not an employee. This would further indicate that the man may have been killed elsewhere and brought to the scene.

Pirate MEP pranks Telegraph with holiday snap scaremongering

Teenaged* German MEP Julia Reda, who believes that “your life is illegal” because of copyright laws, has successfully conned a gullible newspaper into reporting that sharing your own photos will soon be illegal too.

The Telegraph’s skiing expert ran a story suggesting that British holidaymakers “may face legal action” for uploading photos of British landmarks onto Facebook.

Landmarks such as the London Eye would have to be blacked out, the paper reports: “Members of the public would only be able to upload the uncensored photograph with prior consent of the author… Brussels could extend this to the UK as early as next month.”

It would be shocking, indeed, if only it was true. But like most assertions based on statements made by Europe’s last remaining Pirate Party MEP, it isn’t.

After Ben Affleck Scandal, PBS Postpones 'Finding Your Roots'

PBS has released details about an internal investigation which found that actor Ben Affleck exerted improper influence by requesting the show Finding Your Roots hide details of a slave-owning ancestor in his family tree. As a result, PBS has postponed the third season of the show and deferred a fourth season until the network is "satisfied that the editorial standards of the series have been successfully raised to a level in which we can have confidence."
