ORGANIC FARMERS SUFFER 77-FOLD INCREASE IN LOST REVENUE FROM GMO CONTAMINATION IN LAST 3 YEARS

Monsanto has many weapons in its arsenal when it comes to eliminating competition from non-GMO and organic farmers. After more than two decades of pushing their products onto US farmland with purposely flawed safety studies, the sheer presence of genetically modified crops poses an existential threat to the business of traditional and organic farming.

A new report has come out showing the extraordinary costs that non-GMO and organic farmers incur from GMO contamination of their crops.

“Results from the newest USDA survey indicate that of the farmers who chose to answer the question, 92 had experienced monetary loss between 2011 and 2014 averaging approximately $66,395 per farmer during that timeframe. Overall, GMO presence cost organic farmers at least $6.1 million over four years. This figure is 77 times that reported during the 2006 to 2011 timeframe—a staggering increase.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Monsanto, and all the other GMO corporations, should be sued out of existence for the health damage they have caused in the US.

Of course, in this country, politicians on the take will make absolutely certain that this will never happen.

State Department says classified material on Hillary's home-brew server was so sensitive that the safe it gave her lawyer to store the emails wasn't secure enough

The State Department has told Senate investigators that it didn't provide Hillary Rodham Clinton's lawyer with a secure-enough method to read now-highly classified material from her homebrew email server because it didn't anticipate that the messages would be deemed so secret.

In July, State Department officials installed a safe at the office of attorney David Kendall after the government determined some of Clinton's emails may have contained classified information.

But it said last week the safe wasn't suitable for so-called top secret, sensitive compartmented information, known as TS/SCI, which the government has said was found in some messages.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Hillary's lawyer, David Kendall, did not have a security clearance sufficient to view those TS/SCI emails, which makes Hillary's giving him a copy a violation of the espionage act!

Flashback, Bishop Richard WIlliamson: "Not One Jew Killed By Gas Chambers. It Was All Lies Lies Lies."

Catholic Bishop Richard Williamson caused an international incident when he dared to speak the truth about the holohoax in 2009. Williamson was subsequently arrested for 'incitement' and went through a long series of trials and appeals, and his fine was eventually lowered. We also include a little known in-depth follow-up interview with Bishop Williamson about all these matters from 2010, conducted by Nicholas Kollerstrom. Must hear.

JEB BUSH FAMILY VALUES: METH AND DIRTY TRICKS

Diaz’s consulting and lobbying firm, FP1 Strategies, it should be noted, was working for “legitimate” pharmaceutical companies, who of course are not in league with the manufacturers of illicit drugs. But his clients nonetheless did not wish to lose sales of any kind by having their products — Claritin-D, Allegra-D, and Zyrtec-D — revert from open shelves to behind the pharmacist’s counter. Those alarmed by the ease with which pseudoephedrine can be extracted from these products want them out of the reach of meth manufacturers.

Netanyahu: At UN, I Will Stress Israel's Desire for Peace With Palestinians

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said before flying out to New York for the UN General Assembly that he intends to "highlight Israel's desire for peace with the Palestinians" during his Thursday speech and his meeting with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Friday. Netanyahu also said he will urge the Palestinians to stop inciting unrest on Temple Mount.

"I will stress that unfortunately, the Palestinians continue to spread blatant lies about our policy on Temple Mount, and I will demand an end to this wild incitement," he said upon arriving at Ben-Gurion International Airport. "Israel is committed to the status quo, which it maintains. The Palestinian rioters who bring weapons to Temple Mount are the ones who harm the holy place and are the ones violating the status quo."

Pope Francis speaks with God

The Pope was sitting in his Popemobile bubble outside the UN. He was eating a Twix and looking over his speech notes when the phone rang. He picked up.

Pope: Yes?

God: It’s God, Francis. What’s happening down there?

Pope: What, no hello, how are you doing?

God: Cut the crap. Is the UN buying your end-poverty-hunger-global warming pitch?

Pope: Of course. The UN, Obama, and I are on the same page. That’s why I’m here in New York. You think I’d visit this place otherwise? Looks like they won’t even let me go see the Mets.

A Quick Question - PLANNED PARENTHOOD - PLEASE SHARE ON ALL YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Needless to say I am getting all these very nasty emails from women who don't want to be "that kind of girl" and bother with birth control and see abortion as retro-active birth control when they get pregnant. The emails contain the usual arguments; it is a blob of protoplasm, it cannot feel pain, men (including husbands) have nothing to say about it and SHUT THE HECK UP!!!!!

But I think in their heart if hearts they know they are wrong or they would not work so hard trying to force everyone to see the issue from their point of view.

As for myself; I am a big boy and I can make up my own mind thankyouverymuch.

BEX Alert!!! - "Bill Clinton revives an old conspiracy tale as he prepares to hit the trail "

Bill and Hillary Clinton have long believed in a unified-field theory about their opponents — one that she memorably dubbed a “vast right-wing conspiracy.” And they have their own theory of the moment it all began. . .

. . . And Hillary Clinton’s standing in the polls has fallen amid a controversy over her use of a private e-mail account and server, rather a government one, while she was secretary of state.

“It always happens,” Bill Clinton said in the CNN interview. “You’re seeing history repeat itself.”

Mixed Signals from Moscow: Putin’s Russia, Israel and the Middle East

If Putin were truly “anti-Zionist” he would not have any relations with Israel whatsoever and would support the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel. Offering to safeguard Israel’s security with Russian investment in its economy is hardly a gesture of hostility. And signing a 20-year gas deal with Israel evidently signifies that Putin’s Russia believes the Jewish state will continue to exist 20 years in the future.

Civil Asset Forfeiture: A System in Need of Reform

While forfeiture law initially had a narrow and commendable goal, its scope has since expanded dramatically. Today, more than 400 federal statutes covering a wide array of crimes authorize forfeiture.[3] In addition, virtually every state has its own body of forfeiture laws. These statutes allow for the seizing of all manner of real and personal property, from a family’s home to a small business’s bank account. As forfeiture’s reach has grown, so too has the risk of seizing property from innocent people. Unfortunately, there are few procedural protections for innocent property owners. It is fair to characterize forfeiture law as an unlevel playing field that favors law enforcement in nearly every way possible.

Neanderthals Under the Blood Lust Moon

The internet was abuzz about the final blood moon of a tetrad that aligned with Jewish holidays, what dreadful event may come, something big was going to happen to Israel claimed Zionist shill and pastoral pig John Hagee. He claimed such signs in the heavens were messages from almighty God about Israel.

You have to understand that fat assed Hagee thinks every event in the heavens revolves around Israel because he believes that God only cares about this one nation. This is Jewish ethnocentrism being transferred via the memes of the Holy Bible into the minds of stupid American Christian sheep who care more about Israel than their own nation.

Creation of the slave state

We are slaves to our mythologies and our compulsions. Lacking a clear definition of who we are, we scurry like hungry rodents across a landscape we have ravaged, searching for both the reason we were put here and a magic potion to assure that we will never die. For many thousands of years, despite desperate promises from dozens of deities, these two items have continued to elude us.

Kunstler: Did Charlie Rose look like a fucking idiot last night on 60-Minutes, or what.....?

Charlie Rose, 60-Minutes — and perhaps by extension US government agencies with an interest in propagandizing — seem to want to put over the story that Russia has involved itself in Syria only to aggrandize its role on in world affairs.

Forgive me for being so blunt, but what sort of stupid fucking idea is this? And are there any non-lobotomized adults left in the USA who can’t see straight through it? The truth is that American policy in Syria (plus Iraq, Libya, Ukraine, Somalia, Afghanistan) is an impressive record of failure in terms of the one basic aim that most rational people might agree upon: stabilizing the region in a way that does not leave Islamic jihadi maniacs in charge.

Secessionist Parties Win Crucial Election in Spain

Ever since the global financial crisis of 2008, a secessionist movement has been picking up speed in the Catalonia region of Spain. This is due to the fact that Catalonia happens to be the most prosperous state in Spain, and many of their residents are tired of paying more taxes than their countrymen, while receiving less in return. In addition, Catalonia has its own unique history, language and culture that has been suppressed by the Spanish government in the past.

The Refugees Didn’t Realize This European Woman Was Fluent in Arabic

This woman tells the story of what happened when her train to Vienna was besieged by migrants in Budapest. These people didn’t realize that the European woman was fluent in Arabic, and she overheard and understood everything being said around her.

A band of overwhelmingly adult male migrants (they try to spin it in the media like these waves of refugees are mostly women and children, but it’s not true) stormed her train car and casually threatened to take the five people who bought tickets hostage thinking no one else could understand what they were really saying.

Creepy Congressman Stole the Pope’s Water Glass After Speech

NOTE: This is humor, NOT satire (sadly).

Anyone who is famous can expect to encounter a creepy fan or follower from time to time. It’s par for the course when everyone knows who you are. That principle is even more applicable when you’re famous for being the head of an entire religion. However, I’m sure that even the Pope was a little shocked to find that one of his looniest fans was a Congressman.

Hillary’s New Tactic to Dismiss Email Server Controversy: Laugh It All off as a “Conspiracy Theory”

Remember the “vast, right-wing conspiracy”?

It was Hillary’s way of defending Bill and combating the multitude of scandal allegations plaguing their stay in the White House, up to and including the Lewinsky scandal about which his lies eventually got him impeached.

Well, Hillary — who just keeps sauntering around the countryside acting like she really thinks she is going to be president no matter what — is playing that tired old tactic again in reference to the email server scandal that will not die.

When Meet the Press’ Chuck Todd attempted to ask her a question recently, she laughed it off as “another conspiracy theory”.

Nazarbayev proposed to relocate the UN in Asia

The President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev in his speech at the UN General Assembly in New York, proposed to move the headquarters of the United Nations in Asia. Nazarbayev reminded why the headquarters of UN is in new York. "This was due to the fact that at the time was the role of Western hemisphere in international Affairs. Development centre of the world shifted from old world to the new. From Europe to the new point of global growth — USA, new York," he said. By the same principle, according to Nazarbaev, now we need to turn toward Asia. "In the twenty-first century, the center of development shifted to Asia — the biggest continent of the world where lives 2/3 of the world's population, are concentrated huge resources. Powerful breakthrough marked a new reality in global processes. It is important to use this historic opportunity to give new impetus to relations between States with regard to this process.

He then gave some interesting comments about Germany's strict speech laws, comparing them to laws in the U.S. and justifying Germany's speech laws under the guise of 'historical reasons.'

MSNBC: Hillary won’t ‘reassure’ Dems email scandal is over - because more is coming.

If you tuned in Sunday morning to see the “inevitable” candidate’s Meet The Press interview with Chuck Todd, you likely noticed the moment of “the big fail.” Yes, the whole segment was another in a long line of Hillary Clinton’s poor performances, but one question really stood out as problematic.

Check Todd acknowledged that Democrats are nervous over Hillary’s seemingly endless scandals, and he offered her the chance to reassure them that there was nothing more to the email story:

CHUCK TODD: It has the feel of a drip, drip, drip. Can you reassure Democrats that there’s nothing else here?

HILLARY CLINTON: Well, it is like a drip, drip, drip. And that’s why I said there’s only so much that I can control. But what I have tried to do in explaining this is try to provide more transparency and more information than anybody that I’m aware of who’s ever served in the government. And I’m happy to do that because I want these questions to be answered.

$2.7 billion later, Pentagon's defense airships have yet to get off the ground

Unknown to most Americans, the Pentagon has spent $2.7 billion developing a system of giant radar-equipped blimps to provide an early warning if the country were ever attacked with cruise missiles, drones or other low-flying weapons.

After nearly two decades of disappointment and delay, the system — known as JLENS — had a chance to prove its worth on April 15.

That day, a Florida postal worker flew a single-seat, rotary-wing aircraft into the heart of the nation’s capital to dramatize his demand for campaign finance reform.

JLENS is intended to spot just such a tree-skimming intruder, and two of the blimps were supposed to be standing sentry above the capital region. Yet 61-year-old Douglas Hughes flew undetected through 30 miles of highly restricted airspace before landing on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The financial culture in the military industrial complex is not about making products which actually work when they are needed in the field; it is only about making money.

And of course, companies like Raytheon, which is the corporate poster child for creating completely useless products guaranteed to fail, then reaping billions from them, are very, very generous, both overtly and covertly, to the Congressional representatives which funnel this kind of work their way.

What we need here is a law, stating that if a weapons product bought and paid for by US taxpayers does not perform as advertised on the first day of its introduction to military service, the president of the company manufacturing that useless product would wind up prosecuted, and potentially jailed (NOT in a Club Fed) for product failure.

That just MIGHT change the corporate military industrial complex' culture; sadly, of course, the passage of such a law will only happen when pigs fly.

The Russian and Chinese governments pay infinitely less for their weaponry than does the US government; but ultimately, what they get will perform when deployed; there is a tacit understanding about that between those governments and their weapons manufacturers.

Weapons manufacturers in the US and this government do not have that kind of understanding, and it may well hurt our US military very badly when weapons are deployed which will work; although as a Christian pacifist I condemn war, I do not want to see this kind of weapons failure happening to our military members, EVER.

Paul-Éric Blanrue and the Jews: From Celebration to Censorship

Paul-Éric Blanrue is a French writer whose most recent books have documented Jewish power networks in France, especially their relationship with the center-right under Nicolas Sarkozy and with the “far-right” Front National under the Le Pen family.[1] The thesis of these books, meticulously documented, is that Jewish influence in elite French political and cultural circles is enormous. Blanrue quotes countless French political leaders and commentators remarking upon this, but also shows how, if any are critical, they are swiftly punished.

The Paranoid German Mind: Counting Down to the Next War

Having lost, during and after World War II, over 9 million of its soldiers and civilians, Germany has had to wallow in expiation and self-abnegation. Its present grotesque multicultural policy of Willkomenskultur (“welcoming culture” toward non-European migrants), openly heralded by Chancellor Angela Merkel and her government, is the direct result of the lost war. Germany’s role of an exemplary host country for millions of non-European migrants has been a major linchpin of its legal system over the last 70 years — and by default for present day Central European countries subject today to floods of non-European migrants.

Rand Paul Finally Confronted About Israel At Live Event, Tells Questioner "Not Right Now" As He answers Everyone Elses Questions

Senator Rand Paul's presidential campaign is considered a mere footnote in the dustbin of political history at this point, but this is noteworthy anyway. Paul was giving a live speech at a campaign event recently discussing ISIS, and said "Don't fund our enemies."
At that point, Chris Perkins from AuthenticEnlightenment.com, who was video-recording Paul loudly chimed in, asking "What about Israel?" Paul completely ignored the questioner, but after the speech Perkins quietly waited his turn while Paul engaged in conversation and answered questions from many, many people. Finally, when his turn arrived, Perkins approached Paul very politely and asked "Can I ask you a question?"

HOW US PUBLIC SCHOOLS HAVE COME TO INCREASINGLY RESEMBLE PRISONS INSTEAD OF LEARNING CENTERS

In the American police state, you’re either a prisoner (shackled, controlled, monitored, ordered about, limited in what you can do and say, your life not your own) or a prison bureaucrat (police officer, judge, jailer, spy, profiteer, etc.).

Indeed, at a time when we are all viewed as suspects, there are so many ways in which a person can be branded a criminal for violating any number of laws, regulations or policies. Even if you haven’t knowingly violated any laws, there is still a myriad of ways in which you can run afoul of the police state and end up on the wrong side of a jail cell.

Unfortunately, when you’re a child in the American police state, life is that much worse.

Microcosms of the police state, America’s public schools contain almost every aspect of the militarized, intolerant, senseless, overcriminalized, legalistic, surveillance-riddled, totalitarian landscape that plagues those of us on the “outside.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is truly a crime against the most fragile members of our society, our kids, and needs to be changed.

But until such a change happens, where schools are once again a place of learning, encouragement, and the teaching of critical thinking, I have two words for every parent who reads this blog: HOME SCHOOL!!

And if your state forbids this, move to a state that does not. You, and your children, will be far better off in the long run.

DARPA: SOLDIER BRAIN IMPLANTS TO IMPROVE ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE [???]

For decades, DARPA, the secretive research arm of the Department of Defense, has dreamed of turning soldiers into cyborgs. And now it’s finally happening. The agency has funded projects that involve implanting chips into soldiers’ brains that they hope will enhance performance on the battlefield and repair traumatized brains once the fog of war has lifted.

Creating super soldiers isn’t the only thing that DARPA is trying to do. According to Jacobsen’s new book, published by Little, Brown, government scientists hope that implanting chips in soldiers will unlock the secrets of artificial intelligence, and allow us to give machines the kind of higher-level reasoning that humans can do.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The problem with this brave new technology is, that the US government will not stop with just "implanting chips in the brains of soldiers"; this may well become a way of controlling all citizens of this country to the point that they may never have a critical or logical thought pop into their heads ever again, and will only "obey".

I don't know about you, but to me, the potential "dark side" of this technology just gives me the heebie jeebies.

Is Nazi gold train mystery about to be solved? Polish soldiers FINALLY start digging (but they'll only excavate a metre and it's eight metres down)

The mystery surrounding the Nazi gold train said to have been hidden in a hillside 70 years ago is finally set to be solved as soldiers have cleared the site to start digging.

But already the dig has been dismissed as a 'waste of time' by the treasure hunters who allegedly found it because they will only excavate a metre down when whatever is buried there is said to be at least eight metres underneath the surface.

SMOKE AND MIRRORS: NUMEROUS FACTS PROVE US IS SINKING IN POVERTY

Many people want to go to America in search of better life and to fulfill their dreams. However, the United States that was once seen as a stronghold of freedom and numerous opportunities has turned into a place where financial elites run the show and turn the country into their personal private army, Marco Maier wrote in Contra Magazine.

The money is being invested into the military apparatus and the intelligence services so that a small upper class can advance its international business. The majority of the population, however, is increasingly sinking in misery, the journalist argued.

Maier referred to “The Economic Collapse Blog” to prove his point of view and cited a number of facts that demonstrate the poor economic situation in the United States.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We can see it all around us; the deteriorating state of streets, highways, and schools.

We can see the anger on the faces of the homeless, who never chose to be homeless, but had it thrust upon them. We can see the frustration of families, trying to feed their children healthy meals, and are dealing with almost Weimar-era inflation.

One has to wonder what will happen when the whole US economy comes crashing down in one big heap.

39% OF US CHILDREN SPEND AT LEAST ONE YEAR IN POVERTY, 75% OF US BLACK CHILDREN. DEMANDING ARRESTS AND OBVIOUS ECONOMIC REFORMS YET?

Urban Institute reports that nearly two of every five American children spend at least one year in poverty before age 18, with a stunning 75% of US Black children in poverty for at least one year.

CBS interviewed the study author, Caroline Ratcliffe:

“It did surprise us. When we look at the annual number of children in poverty, it’s at about 20 percent, and we know children cycle into and out of poverty, so we knew it would be higher, but double is startling.”

Importantly, it’s likely an official poverty line of $24,250 yearly income for a family of four is a ridiculous understatement of the income to meet basic economic needs, given US “leadership” lies about economic data of employment and inflation to change definitions that result in ridiculous understatements. For example, when unemployment today is counted the same way as during the Great Depression, today’s statistics of over 20% unemployment for the last six years is worse.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

These numbers constitute a crime against humanity, particularly against the most vulnerable among us, our children.

17.4 million Americans hit by identity theft in 2014

17.6 million Americans were victims of identity theft in 2014, according to a government report released Sunday.

Eighty-six percent of the victims were targets of credit card and bank account fraud. An estimated 8.6 million victims had their credit card accounts stolen, 8.1 million victims had bank accounts meddled with. Another 1.5 million experience other varying types of identity theft, including telephone and insurance fraud.

Two-thirds of victims suffered direct financial losses. Fourteen percent lost $1,000 or more.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

And all of the resources of the NSA and the Justice Department (better known in the 21st century as the "Just-Us" Department, to protect the wealth of the 1%) are totally, thoroughly impotent to stop this, and prevent this kind of crime?!?

POLICE QUESTION WOMAN FOR WEARING A PROTEST T-SHIRT AS SHE WALKED PAST THE 9/11 MEMORIAL

As Miru Kim walked past the 9/11 memorial, NYPD cops pointed to her shirt and asked her about the message on it!

"He asked me what my shirt said," she recalled. "I told him it was an old T-shirt from a protest group. That got him going even more, and I had to explain that it was from an anti-Iraq War group from a long time ago. Like, 10 years ago."

The officer asked for Kim's apartment number and phone number, then asked for her ID, which she says she didn't have on her person. She proceeded to give him "all of my information," including her name and cellphone number.

"I thought it was kind of annoying getting all of my information taken down by police," Kim said. "I didn't ask why. I didn't really say anything. I basically just complied and explained that it's just a shirt from a long time ago."

In Kim's social media post she says:

Swiss authorities probe 7 banks for suspected metals price fixing

Swiss competition authorities said Monday they were investigating UBS, HSBC, Deutsche Bank and four other major banks for suspected price fixing in the trade of precious metals like gold and silver.

The Swiss Competition Commission (COMCO) said it was looking into whether seven banks had colluded to manipulate prices in the precious metals market.

The watchdog said in a statement that it had "opened an investigation against two Swiss banks, UBS and Julius Baer, as well as against the foreign financial institutions Deutsche Bank, HSBC, Barclays, Morgan Stanley and Mitsui."

COMCO, which opened a preliminary probe in February, said it now had indications that the banks had "possibly concluded illegal competition defying deals" in the trade of the precious metals gold, silver, platinum and palladium.

"We think they can have manipulated the price of these precious metals," COMCO deputy chief Patric Ducrey told AFP.

Hillary Clinton’s incomplete timeline on her personal e-mail account

A number of readers have asked the Fact Checker to explore Clinton’s stated timeline about her dealings with the State Department about her private e-mail system. New questions have arisen in light of The Washington Post’s report that the State Department confirmed that the triggering event to seek Clinton’s e-mails was the congressional investigation into the 2012 Benghazi attacks that left four Americans dead.

Previously, the State Department had danced around this fact, despite a report in the New York Times on March 5 that quoted unnamed “current and former officials” as saying “it was the review of Benghazi-related documents last summer that, within the State Department, set off the chain of events leading to the public disclosure this week of Mrs. Clinton’s use of a private email account.”

Yes, Hillary Clinton broke the law

According to the law, there are five elements that must be met for a violation of the statute, and they can all be found in section (a) of the statute: “(1) Whoever, being an officer, employee, contractor, or consultant of the United States, and, (2) by virtue of his office, employment, position, or contract, becomes possessed of documents or materials containing classified information of the United States, (3) knowingly removes such documents or materials (4) without authority and (5) with the intent to retain such documents or materials at an unauthorized location [shall be guilty of this offense].”

The Petraeus case meets those conditions. Does Clinton’s?

Clinton originally denied that any of her emails contained classified information, but soon abandoned that claim. So far, 150 emails containing classified information have been identified on her server, including two that included information determined to be Top Secret.
