THOUGHT FOR THE DAY!

"Once a nation parts with the control of its currency and credit, it matters not who makes the nations laws. Usury, once in control, will wreck any nation. Until the control of the issue of currency and credit is restored to government and recognized as its most sacred responsibility, all talk of the sovereignty of parliament and of democracy is idle and futile." -- William Lyon Mackenzie King (1874-1950) Prime Minister of Canada (1935-- 1948)

New Epstein Documents Reportedly Name ‘Staggering’ Number of Elites

Wall Street financier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein has shaken America’s elitist class to the core: they don’t want to be remotely close to the nuclear explosion of names and dates that will inevitably be released.

According to Vanity Fair, the U.S. Court of Appeals is set to release nearly 2,000 documents related to Epstein, which may uncover rampant sexual abuse by the disgraced financier and his many associates.

The judges stated that "numerous prominent American politicians, powerful business executives, foreign presidents, a well-known prime minister, and other world leaders" may be on the incriminating documents.

David Boies, a lawyer for Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts Guiffre, said, "Nobody who was around Epstein a lot is going to have an easy time now. It’s all going to come out."

Arkancide? Murder of Arkansas Senator Linda Collins-Smith linked to Epstein pedophilia and sex trafficking scandal

New information is surfacing to suggest that the unsolved murder of Arkansas Senator Linda Collins-Smith may be connected to the public unveiling of pedophile Jeffrey Epstein and his child sex trafficking ring.

While the details are still forthcoming, CD Media is reporting that a "confidential source that has been accurate consistently" recently came forward with proof tying Collins-Smith’s mysterious death to her involvement with blowing the lid off an alleged child sex trafficking ring in Arkansas.

Collins-Smith, a Republican, had also been working to expose "massive corruption in the local and state government" in Arkansas, which suggests that she may have been "Arkancided" for getting a little bit too close to the truth.

According to CD Media‘s "confidential source," the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is currently investigating this alleged link, which potentially also implicates Bill and Hillary Clinton, after which the term "Arkancide" was first coined.

Iran forces say they seized British-flagged oil tanker in Gulf as tensions escalate

Iran’s Revolutionary Guards said on Friday they had captured a British-flagged oil tanker in the Gulf after Britain seized an Iranian vessel earlier this month, further raising tensions along a vital international oil shipping route.

Britain said it was urgently seeking information about the Stena Impero after the tanker, which had been heading to a port in Saudi Arabia, suddenly changed course after passing through the Strait of Hormuz at the mouth of the Gulf.

The Revolutionary Guards said they seized the tanker at the request of Iranian maritime authorities for “not following international maritime regulations,” state television reported.

Russia’s Rostec says ready to sell Su-35 fighters to Turkey

Russia is ready to discuss supplying Su-35 fighter jets to Turkey, the head of the state-owned Rostec corporation said in a statement yesterday.

“If our Turkish colleagues express a desire, we are ready to work out deliveries of Su-35 fighter jets,” Sergei Chemezov said, according to the statement.

He added that Russian Deputy Prime Minister Yury Borisov had told the Intrafax news agency that there is a possibility for Moscow and Ankara to begin negotiations over the sale of Russian fighter jets.

This comes after Washington said on Wednesday that Ankara’s decision to purchase Russian S-400 missile defence systems “renders its continued involvement with the F-35 impossible”.

“Our military-to-military relationship is strong, and we will continue to cooperate with Turkey extensively, mindful of constraints due to the presence of the S-400 system in Turkey,” the US press secretary added.

Hidden in Plain Sight: The Shocking Origins of the Jeffrey Epstein Case

Despite his “sweetheart” deal and having seemingly evaded justice, billionaire sex offender Jeffrey Epstein was arrested earlier this month on federal charges for sex trafficking minors. Epstein’s arrest has again brought increased media attention to many of his famous friends, the current president among them.

Many questions have since been asked about how much Epstein’s famous friends knew of his activities and exactly what Epstein was up to. The latter arguably received the most attention after it was reported that Alex Acosta — who arranged Epstein’s “sweetheart” deal in 2008 and who recently resigned as Donald Trump’s Labor Secretary following Epstein’s arrest — claimed that the mysterious billionaire had worked for “intelligence.”

U.N. Report Condemns Torture of Assange

While it is rare that publishers themselves make headlines, reports about WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange now probably outnumber articles based on the information he published. This is the extent to which the man behind some of the most shocking revelations about U.S. war crimes has come under public scrutiny. Despite the profound journalistic importance of the work Assange and whistleblower Chelsea Manning have done, the two have been smeared, persecuted and imprisoned in an effort to “shoot the messenger,” which effectively distracts from their revelations and works to undermine their credibility.

The Lie Factory—CNN—Is Collapsing. Thank God.

CNN abandoned journalism and became a propaganda ministry for the Democratic National Committee and the corrupt upper echelons of the CIA and FBI. After three years of telling the most outrageous lies ever associated with an alleged news organization in an alleged democracy, CNN’s viewership collapsed. CNN turned propaganda ministry saw its primetime viewers shrink by 40%. Even insouciant Americans could see that CNN was nothing but a lie factory.

One would have thought CNN would have learned a lesson. But apparently not. The scum or fools, whichever it is, that runs CNN decided instead to tell even more lies. The propaganda ministry concocted an even less believable story than the ones that had driven away 40% of CNN viewers. The story “reported” by Alex Marquardt goes as follows:

50 years after Apollo 11: What really rocketed us to the moon

Our commitment to space exploration began with a wake-up call over six decades ago with a beeping sound.

Not with a clock radio, but with a transponder signal that could be tuned into by any ham radio enthusiast -- the launching and ever present chirping of the Soviet Sputnik 1 satellite in 1957, the first artificial satellite. Shortly after that, the Soviets sent a dog into space aboard Sputnik 2. Several other Sputniks followed, then in 1961 they sent a man, Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin, into orbit aboard Vostok 1.

Also: Advancing human exploration: Is space the final frontier, and how can data and AI get us there?

Each of these milestones in space exploration was accompanied by the Soviets proclaiming their technical and moral superiority over the capitalist and imperialist United States, which was fumbling with its own space program and could barely get their own satellite and manned rocket off the ground.

Defense Contractors Are Tightening Their Grip On Our Government

When, in his farewell address in 1961, President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned of the dangers of the “unwarranted influence” wielded by the “military-industrial complex,” he could never have dreamed of an arms-making corporation of the size and political clout of Lockheed Martin.

THE CIA WANTS TO MAKE IT EASIER TO JAIL JOURNALISTS AND NO ONE IN CONGRESS IS STOPPING IT FROM HAPPENING

The CIA is pushing for an expansion of a 37-year-old law that would deter journalists from covering national security issues or reporting on leaked documents. Thanks to a disillusioned CIA case officer's actions in 1975, there are currently a few limits to what can or can't be reported about covert operatives working overseas.

In 1975, Philip Agee published a memoir about his years with the CIA. Attached to his memoir -- which detailed his growing discontentment with the CIA's clandestine support of overseas dictators -- was a list of 250 CIA agents or informants. In response to this disclosure, Congress passed the Intelligence Identities Protection Act (IIPA), which criminalized disclosing the identity of covert intelligence agents.

Food shortages begin as canned vegetables start to run out at grocery stores across America

Shoppers are starting to notice the effects of the abysmal growing season here in the United States, as grocery stores in various parts of the country are having to post signage explaining that food shortages are the reason why their shelves are unusually bare.

At a Kroger supermarket, for instance, one shopper snapped a photo of an ominous sign in the canned vegetables aisle that reads:

“Due to a poor harvest season, we are experiencing shortages on many of our canned vegetable items. We hope to be back in stock by the end of August.”

Similar signage was observed in the canned vegetables aisle at a Walmart store in Tennessee as well, stating:

“Due to limited availability, we are experiencing product shortages across this category. We’re working closely with our suppliers to get these items back as quickly as possible. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.”

Sunk Russian sub is leaking 100,000 times more radiation than previously thought, experts discover

The nuclear fallout from a Russian submarine that was sunk off the coast of Norway roughly three decades ago has spiked dramatically over the past several years, and experts are scratching their heads trying to figure out why.

According to reports, the Soviet-era vessel, which currently sits at the bottom of the Barents Sea, is now emitting radiation at levels 100,000 times higher than normal, and substantially higher than what was detected 12 years ago when earlier readings were taken.

The Kosomolets, as the sub is called, was sunk back in 1989, which resulted in the deaths of 42 of the vessel’s 69 crew members. It now rests almost a mile deep, where it’s been degrading and presumably becoming increasingly less radioactive.

But for whatever reason, the sub is becoming more radioactive, with strange emissions occurring from one of the vessel’s ventilation holes, which experts say is kicking up “mysterious” dust clouds.

Theft of Silwan Highlights the Injustice of the Israeli Occupation

Israeli police forced out the Siyam family from their home in the heart of occupied East Jerusalem last week, the final chapter in their 25-year legal battle against a powerful settler organization.

The family’s defeat represented much more than just another eviction. It was intended to land a crushing blow against the hopes of some 20,000 Palestinians living in the shadow of the Old City walls and Al Aqsa mosque.

Dozens of families in the Silwan neighborhood have endured the same fate as the Siyams, and the Israeli courts have approved the imminent eviction of many hundreds more Palestinians from the area.

But, unlike those families, the Siyams’ predicament briefly caught public attention. That was because one of them, Jawad Siyam, has become a figurehead of Silwan’s resistance efforts.

How Corporate Media Are Fueling a New Iran Nuclear Crisis

The U.S. news media’s coverage of the Iran nuclear issue has been woefully off-kilter for many years. Now, however, those same outlets are contributing to the serious crisis building between Washington and Tehran.

Iran has responded to Trump’s withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear deal by resuming the stockpiling of low enriched uranium, removing the cap on the level of uranium enrichment and resuming work at the Arak nuclear reactor, while making it very clear that those steps would be immediately reversed if the United States agreed to full compliance.

Why is the suppression of research into ANY aspect of history acceptable?

Top 5 Myths About the Constitution

By Michael Boldin

From the necessary and proper, general Welfare and commerce clauses, to the preamble, federal “supremacy” and more – there are a lot to choose from.

The hardest part about putting this list together was keeping it to just the top five.

A disturbing report out of ProPublica and the Anchorage Daily News exposes just how easy it is for criminals — who have been convicted of heinous crimes — to become cops.

One of these cops is Nimeron Mike, who never thought he’d be hired as a police officer but applied anyway. He’d been convicted of assault, domestic violence, vehicle theft, groping a woman, hindering prosecution, reckless driving, drunken driving and choking a woman unconscious in an attempted sexual assault. Among other crimes. Nevertheless, when Mike put in his application, he was hired immediately. “Am I a cop now?” he remembers thinking. “It’s like, that easy?”...

DEFENSE CONTRACTORS ARE TIGHTENING THEIR GRIP ON OUR GOVERNMENT

SOURCE: ZEROHEDGE

Authored by William Hartung via TomDispatch.com,

When, in his farewell address in 1961, President Dwight D. Eisenhower warned of the dangers of the “unwarranted influence” wielded by the “military-industrial complex,” he could never have dreamed of an arms-making corporation of the size and political clout of Lockheed Martin.

In a good year, it now receives up to $50 billion in government contracts, a sum larger than the operating budget of the State Department. And now it’s about to have company.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

When Karl Marx made the observation that all wars are economic in their origin, the guy was absolutely, entirely correct.

Through wars, the military industrial complex makes obscene profits, even with products which are inferior; late to market; and have an incredible, unjustifiable markup; so it is, also, with the banks which loan money to governments to keep the wars going, with loans which are generally usurious in their interest rates.

The only people for whom wars are horrendous, are those who are "press-ganged" into fighting them.

I cannot say, with any certainty, that the US government will reinstate the draft; but were I a betting woman, I would not bet against this happening, particularly if there is another horrific false flag (to most probably be blamed on the "villian du jure", these days, Iran).

And please understand; wars are not about honor, glory, or protecting or preserving the "American Way of Life.", however that translates to you.

Wars are about regime-changing governments, to create governments which are Western/US centric; expropriating resources to which the US Government has absolutely no moral right; and insuring that those resources are only sold in US dollars.

If you take a look at all the wars from President Bush's attacks against Afghanistan and Iraq; President Obama's regime change in Libya ( because Ghadaffi was about to institute a gold-backed dinar, which would have utterly wiped the floor with the US dollar); and President Trump's threats against Iran (for regime change, and its oil wealth), this is absolutely, painfully, obvious.

In my world, patriotism consists of honoring the good that people do for their country, which may, or may not be something they do for money; the polar opposite of patriotism, is milking a government for every cent you can, in the name of defense, when what the military industrial complex generally creates is very expensive "junk" which completely under-serves our men and women in uniform.

As those of you who read this blog consistently understand; I am a Christian Pacifist Activist, who believes that the US government should use its entire range of options, including moral, hard-won, reasonable negotiations before declaring war against another government.

Unfortunately, with the military industrial complex, which needs wars and conflict to survive, and the Deep State so stunningly in control of US foreign policy, this is only likely to happen...when pigs discover that they are aerodynamic!!

UK, US militaries join forces to keep the upper hand in space

Britain has joined forces with the United States in a coalition aimed at bolstering space defenses against hostile actions by rivals such as China and Russia, according to Britain’s defense secretary.

In a second space-related tie-up, the two countries are partnering in a project to field a small-satellite demonstrator within a year, Penny Mordaunt told delegates at the Air and Space Power Conference in London on July 18.

Britain is the first international partner to formally sign up for what is a little-known, American-led coalition called Operation Olympic Defender aimed at strengthening allies’ abilities to deter hostile actions by rivals.

Mordaunt said over the next 18 months that Britain will send eight personnel to the U.S. Combined Space Operations Center in California to support the operation.

UN reaches agreement with Yemen rebels to resume food deliveries

The World Food Program has reached an agreement in principle with Yemen's Huthi rebels to resume food aid to areas they control, the agency's chief said on Thursday.

Malnutrition is widespread in Yemen after four years of civil war, but the UN suspended deliveries of food aid to rebel-held areas of the country last month following accusations of "diversion of food."

The new agreement with the Huthis will allow food to be quickly delivered to the rebel-held capital Sanaa, though the two sides haven't formally inked the deal yet, WFP chief David Beasley told the UN Security Council.

"I can say that we have made substantial progress," he said during a meeting to discuss Yemen, in which he joined UN humanitarian officials in underlining the dire situation in the country.

Hawaii telescope protest shuts down 13 observatories on Mauna Kea

Hundreds of protestors have blocked construction of the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) on Mauna Kea in Hawaii. Thirteen astronomical observatories that call the mountain home have evacuated workers and curtailed their operations.

Work on the TMT was set to resume on 15 July after a four-year delay caused by legal challenges and protests. Hawaii’s state supreme court ruled in October that the TMT’s construction permit was valid.

But last weekend, opponents of the telescope began gathering at a site at the base of the access road that leads up Mauna Kea. They sang, held signs and spoke out against the TMT, which they believe will further despoil a sacred mountain.

How mobile phones CAN interfere with plane navigation systems on some jets even in 'flight mode'

Mobile phones still pose a real risk to the safety of planes even when in the supposedly flight-safe 'airplane mode'.

The feature found on most handsets disables all external signals from a phone but the device can still use WiFi, which interferes with some faulty screens still in use.

A vulnerability was discovered in 2014 that caused cockpit screens in Boeing 737 Next Generation and 777 airliners to suffer with interference from WiFi signals.

In 2014 the US Government promptly issued a deadline for all operators to replace or fix the fault by November 2019, but some are still believed to still be in use.

DEA TRACKED EVERY OPIOID PILL SOLD IN THE US. THE DATA IS OUT—AND IT’S HORRIFIC

SOURCE: ARSTECHNICA.COM

Between 2006 and 2012, opioid drug makers and distributors flooded the country with 76 billion pills of oxycodone and hydrocodone—highly addictive opioid pain medications that sparked the epidemic of abuse and overdoses that killed nearly 100,000 people in that time period.

As the epidemic surged over the seven-year period, so did the supply. The companies increased distribution from 8.4 billion in 2006 to 12.6 billion in 2012, a jump of roughly 50%. In all, the deluge of pills was enough to supply every adult and child in the country with around 36 opioid pills per year. Just a 10-day supply can hook 1 in 5 people into being long-term users, researchers have determined.

Unfortunately, these are alternatives which are not really supported by the medical/industrial complex at all, because it eats into drugs' profitability.
