“It is almost universally unacceptable to prey on the weak of one’s own species. There are laws and religious precepts against this in every human culture, the Clintons had no scruples preying on the suffering of Caribbean and African nations.”

On Thursday, March 23, a New York City-based non-profit AIDS service organization, the GMHC (formerly Gay Men’s Health Crisis), is due to honor Bill Clinton, the founder of the Clinton Foundation and the 42nd President of the United States for “battling the epidemic since 2002” and “saving the lives of people living with HIV/AIDS worldwide.

“However, according to Charles Ortel, a Wall Street analyst who exposed financial fraud at General Electric back in 2007, “there is no evidence that can be verified that the ‘international’ charity ever lawfully provided any help to victims of HIV/AIDS anywhere.”

In his earlier interview with Sputnik on the Clinton Foundation’s HIV/AIDS initiative, Ortel revealed that not only were the Foundation’s efforts to fight the deadly virus never lawfully organized, but the charity could have also been involved in the distribution of adulterated antiretroviral (ARV) drugs.

In light of this the question arises: what then was the Clintons’ initiative all about?

To answer the question one should take a look at a role the charity played in a United Nations-sponsored program that uses levies on airline tickets to help HIV/AIDS victims in developing countries.

Back in 2015 Charles Ortel exposed the scheme which was potentially used by the Clinton Foundation to defraud air travelers.

“Starting next January, whenever you buy an airline ticket at a travel agency or online, there’ll be a new question to answer before you hand over your credit card: Would you be willing to donate $2 to help fight HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis in Africa?” Time Magazine reported on September 18, 2009.

It was rather predictable that the answer would be positive, especially when one found out that the scheme, kicked off by the small UNITAID agency, was backed by “the travel industry and heavyweights of international aid such as the William J. Clinton Foundation and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.”However, besides the heavyweights, the program also involved Ranbaxy Laboratories LTD, a controversial Indian pharmaceutical company which later pleaded guilty in manufacturing inefficient and sometimes even toxic adulterated ARVs.

In his 2015 interview with Jerome R. Corsi of World Net Daily (WND) Ortel pointed out that it was shrouded in secrecy how much money exactly the charity received from UNITAID and spent on its HIV/AIDS efforts from 2006 through 2013. The Wall Street analyst assumed that the Clintons had cashed in on the multi-million dollar program.

For example, he drew attention to the fact that the 2013 Clinton Foundation Annual Report brochure listed CHAI program expenditures as $127.8 million “while a detailed analysis of consolidated financial reports show CHAI’s actual program expenditures were just $99.1 million, a discrepancy of $28.7 million.”

According to Ortel, “the Clintons have defrauded an unsuspecting international public of hundreds of millions of dollars for personal gain.”

Speaking to Sputnik, Ortel recalled that “by September 2006, a multilateral aid organization called UNITAID was organized in Geneva Switzerland and funded mostly by governments (France, UK, Spain, Norway, South Korea and others) and the Gates Foundation.

“The Financial Reports show that the Government of France was the main supporter of UNITAID and that the Clinton Foundation HIV/AIDS Initiative was a prime beneficiary of financial support from UNITAID, especially from 2006 through 2009, when this entity received about half of all support provided by UNITAID (around $300 million for CHAI),” the Wall Street analyst told Sputnik.

However, there is yet another controversy in this story, he noted.

“According to other records available in the public domain, CHAI was actually liquidated with effect from 31 December 2005 and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts (where CHAI was headquartered) involuntarily revoked authority to operate effective 31 December 2007 so it is quite surprising that UNITAID channeled so much financial support between late 2006 and 2009 and even more surprising that neither UNITAID nor its donors sought to obtain refunds of sums donated to what seems to have been an illegally organized and operated ‘charity,'” Ortel highlighted.

The exposure of the Clinton Foundation’s alleged fraud may affect many individual sponsors and foreign government officials who poured millions of dollars into a charity which was not properly organized and apparently grabbed millions of dollars for personal gain.

What is worse, these sponsors and officials had never asked any questions regarding the actual spending of the funds by the Clintons’ charity.

“Fair-minded people across the world revere charities that actually help the afflicted; conversely, they normally revile supposed charities that flout laws,” the analyst remarked.

“Given the vast international spread and activities and international support for the Clinton Foundation, and the fact that there is no empowered international regulator of any charity, I think it is past time for taxpayers in nations like Australia, Norway, Canada, Ireland, France, Sweden, Switzerland, Spain, Korea and the United Kingdom (to pick just a few) to demand explanations concerning what the Clinton Foundation may have done with their substantial collective contributions ‘fighting HIV/AIDS’ from July 2002 forward,” Ortel told Sputnik.

Speaking to Dady Chery, News Junkie Post Co-Editor in Chief and DadyChery.org editor, in January 2016, Ortel dubbed the Clintons a “Robin Hood in Reverse,” explaining that the influential American clan benefitted from their well-known HIV/AIDS initiative and Haiti recovery efforts by redistributing the wealth intended for the poor to the rich.

“It is almost universally unacceptable to prey on the weak of one’s own species. There are laws and religious precepts against this in every human culture,” Chery wrote, calling attention to the fact that the Clintons had no scruples preying on the suffering of Caribbean and African nations.

So, for what exactly is the GMHC honor Bill Clinton?

Israel’s smear campaign against humanitarian organizations

22 March 2017

The Australian government has cleared the international Christian charity World Vision of diverting funds to Hamas.

“The Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) says an internal review into World Vision funding in Gaza has uncovered nothing to suggest any diversion of government aid funding to Hamas,” the country’s public broadcaster ABC reported on Tuesday.

Tim Costello, the head of World Vision Australia, welcomed the finding, which he said confirmed those of his own organization.

“So far, our own ongoing forensic audit has not uncovered any money subverted and to hear DFAT say their investigation hasn’t either is consistent and is very good news,” Costello told ABC.

In June 2016, Israel’s Shin Bet intelligence agency arrested World Vision’s Gaza director Mohammed El Halabi and accused him of diverting tens of millions of dollars to Hamas’ military wing.

World Vision rejected the Israeli allegations, noting that the sums Israel claimed had been diverted far exceeded its entire program budget in Gaza.

In the wake of Israel’s allegations, the Australian government suspended its funding for World Vision’s work in Palestine and launched the investigation.

El Halabi’s lawyer said that his client had been tortured during weeks of Israeli interrogation.

When his trial began in August last year, human rights defenders condemned Israel’s use of secret proceedings.

“Secret trials are the most flagrant violation of the right to a public hearing. Holding these court proceedings behind closed doors would render any convictions obtained unsound,” said Magdalena Mughrabi of Amnesty International’s Middle East and North Africa program.

Smear campaign

The Tel Aviv newspaper Haaretz quoted “Western diplomats” last August saying Israel had only been interested in creating a “public diplomacy buzz” and had not provided a shred of evidence to any donor country to support the claims that World Vision funds had been transferred to Hamas.

The conclusion of the Australian government inquiry deals another blow to Israel’s smear campaign against humanitarian organizations.

The trial of El Halabi, who has refused an Israeli plea bargain offer, is ongoing.

Meanwhile, Israel continues to target aid workers.

In January, Wahid al-Bursh an employee of the United Nations Development Program accepted a plea deal and was sentenced to seven months in prison, a relatively light term given the gravity of Israel’s claims that he had “aided Hamas.”

On Tuesday, Israel revealed details of its allegations against Muhammad Murtaja, director of the Gaza office of Turkey’s international aid agency. Israel arrested Murtaja in February, claiming he had diverted funds to Hamas.

Murtaja’s lawyer has denied all of Israel’s allegations and said the accusations fit Israel’s pattern of targeting aid agencies.

Also in February, UNRWA, the UN agency for Palestine refugees, suspended the head of its staff union in Gaza after Israel claimed that he had been elected to the leadership of Hamas.

Suheil al-Hindi denied the claims, telling Ma’an News Agency that he was “shocked” by the Israeli accusations and by his suspension.

UNRWA spokesperson Chris Gunness tweeted that the agency had launched an investigation.

“Thus far no evidence has been forthcoming or uncovered by us that would confirm the allegation,” Gunness said.

It’s Imperialism, Stupid

Western Imperialism for Dummies 3 min vid

I roll my eyes every time I read the words “fighting ISIS”… it’s merely euphemism for perpetual war.
The Zionist Plan for the Middle East, also known as the Yinon Plan, is an Israeli strategic plan to ensure Israeli regional superiority. It insists and stipulates that Israel must reconfigure its geo-political environment through the balkanization of the surrounding Arab states into smaller and weaker states.
Saudi Arabia believes “ISIS” cannot be “defeated” unless Syrian President Bashar al-Assad is removed from power. Turkey has just convinced NATO nations that the war against “ISIS” can only be “won” if Turkey’s traditional Kurdish opponents are neutralized first. The US “fights ISIS” for Israel. Israel sees only one way to “defeat” “ISIS” is to destroy Iran. Russia is “fighting ISIS” which translates into fighting western imperialism which threatens it’s interests in the region.”Fighting ISIS”. Ok.

“Fight ISIS” for Israel

New Israeli Database Targeting Israeli Citizens Who Support BDS

G4S security firm had boycotted Israel (or so Israel perceived)…in which afterward a false flag event in Orlando pointing to a G4S employee resulted in significant financial loss to G4S company. Fl. Gov. Rick Scott was declared a “friend of Israel” who was pledged to fight BDS just before the Orlando shooting.

It is not Zionism as an ideology that should be evaluated as racist or not, despite its ethnic exclusivity, but Israel as a state subject to international law, including the International Convention on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination(1966) and the International Convention on Suppression and Punishment of the Crime of Apartheid (1973).

March 21, 2017 — Today, Israel’s Minister of Strategic Affairs, Gilad Erdan, announced that his ministry seeks to create a new database of Israeli citizens who support the grassroots Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement to secure Palestinian human rights.

Mahmoud Nawajaa, the General Coordinator of the Palestinian BDS National Committee (BNC), said:
This new database is consistent with the Israeli government’s ongoing efforts to suppress the BDS movement for Palestinian rights, precisely because support for the movement is growing both inside Israel and around the world.

This new database targeting Israeli citizens who support BDS is in addition to another database that the Israeli government is already preparing, which targets BDS supporters from other countries, and which a recently-passed Israeli law seeks to use to bar international supporters of Palestinian rights from entering into Israel and occupied Palestinian Territory.

It’s also in addition to a law passed in 2011 that allows civil suits to be filed against Israeli citizens who call for boycotts related to Israeli human rights abuses. Now, the Israeli government seeks to further repress Israeli citizens for their political thought and human rights work.

It is not at all surprising that Mr. Erdan and his government should spy on Israeli citizens, whether Jewish or Palestinian, or set up a database of those supporting BDS in order to target anyone working for the freedom, justice and equality of Palestinians.

Support for the BDS movement has been growing around the globe in recent years, as more and more people recognize the brutal reality of Israel’s apartheid regime and nearly 50-year-old military occupation of Palestinian lands. Israel’s repressive efforts to suppress the BDS movement further illustrate the justice of our cause and will thus only strengthen worldwide support for our nonviolent struggle for our freedom and rights.

Did Putin Kill David Rockefeller?

David Rockefeller Found Dead At Home Aged 101 Years Old | Neon Nettle

The eighth heart transplant in 101 years and ‘lizardking’ died anyway,  it MUST be a conspiracy!

russia-insider.com

Famous banker and lizard king David Rockefeller has passed away at the age of 101.

According to reports, doctors were not able to perform an eighth orphan-heart transplant in order to save his life.

Yes, David died of heart problems, which obviously  means he was assassinated by Vladimir Putin.

But why would Russia’s president want Rockefeller dead? This chart explains everything:

A conspiracy spoof? LOL


Tidbit 4 real: Rockefeller broke the world record for most heart transplants with up to seven, the last one allegedly as recent as last year. However, there’s no record of any patient ever receiving that number of heart transplants – even those who receive two such transplants over their lifetime is rare.

This is not specific about David Rockefeller but an interesting mention on how the all -powerful live so long.

How Israel Made Amnesty INTL’s Local Branch a Front for the Foreign Ministry in the 70s

Amnesty Israel said that the documents demonstrate that the government of Israel has never refrained from making use of any means to evade accountability for the violation of human rights it conducts, in the 1970s as well as today.

Lior Yavne, the executive director of Akevot told Haaretz that the “manipulative exploitation” deployed then is reminiscent of groups in recent years that “supposedly originate in the civil society but have murky sources of funding and operate to damage the legitimacy of human rights organizations critical of the policy of the Israeli government.”

Israel used a local Amnesty International branch as a front for the foreign ministry in the late 1960s and 1970s, according to an exclusive report by Haaretz, based on official documents authenticated and translated by the Israeli news outlet.

The documents reveal how some heads of Amnesty International Israel were allegedly in regular contact with the Foreign Ministry from the late 1960s to the mid -1970s, reporting on their activity in real time, consulting with officials and taking instructions from them.
Institute for Israeli-Palestinian Conflict Research and say they show how Israel tried to influence Amnesty’s activity from within.

The Amnesty office in Israel received regular funds transferred through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs which reportedly included hundreds of Israeli pounds for flights abroad, per diem allowances, registration fees and dues payments to the organization’s headquarters, according to the papers.

The report claims that the strongest link between the Foreign Ministry and the Amnesty office was during the period between 1974 and 1976 when Professor Yoram Dinstein was at its helm. Dinstein previously worked in the Foreign Ministry and served as the Israeli consul in New York.

Dinstein’s appointment meeting was attended by the Foreign Ministry officer who he was most regularly in contact with during his time as chairman, according to one document.

Dinstein denied that Amnesty Israel received funds from the Foreign Ministry when contacted by Haaretz last week. He also disputed being in contact with the agency and said it had no involvement in the Amnesty International branch.

He also made clear his present day opinions of the human rights organization: “I resigned after a few years when I became aware that this is a populist organization very far from everything I believe in, which is research and knowledge.”

Today Amnesty International is dealing with an area about which it understands nothing – international humanitarian law,” he added.

Lior Yavne, the executive director of Akevot told Haaretz that the “manipulative exploitation” deployed then is reminiscent of groups in recent years that “supposedly originate in the civil society but have murky sources of funding and operate to damage the legitimacy of human rights organizations critical of the policy of the Israeli government.”

ESCWA chief resigns under pressure over ‘Israeli apartheid regime’ report

 Amnesty’s International Secretariat said in a statement that the files “present serious allegations suggesting that the leadership of our former Israel section acted in a manner that was blatantly at odds with Amnesty International’s principles.”

It noted that since 1975, the organization formally agreed that it would accept no government funds for any of its research or campaigns. The Israeli branch of Amnesty International opened in 1964, three years after the organization was founded in London.

During the period in question we were a movement that was still in its infancy. As we grew to become the truly global movement we are today, we have continued to develop robust governance policies and procedures to ensure stringent impartiality and accountability.”

Amnesty Israel said that the documents demonstrate that the government of Israel has never refrained from making use of any means to evade accountability for the violation of human rights it conducts, in the 1970s as well as today.

Amnesty International Israel today runs a number of campaigns aimed at combating discrimination against Palestinian citizens of Israel, confronting human rights abuses within the occupied Palestinian territories and gaining equal rights for asylum seekers and refugees.

“Settlements in Palestine on stolen Palestinian land began in 1948”

“They’re trying to conflate [BDS] with terrorism and antisemitism,” he concluded, “because they realize that it is a real threat. The settler-colonial project which is the State of Israel has been going on for seven decades, and now suddenly the international community discovers that there’s a problem? ”

Peled made the transition from being a “colonizer” to being “an immigrant” in Palestine. Coming as a colonizer gives you a sense of being better than the indigenous population and having rights, whereas coming as an immigrant makes you appreciate the land that you’ve come to, he explained.

That is the reality today, so is it one state or two states? The sheer stupidity of this argument – of this conversation – is sometimes shocking because it has been a single state; it’s been an apartheid state from the very beginning.

Miko Peled , one of the few who publicly gets it right.

An All-Out War on the American People

“Fly and enjoy America’s great destination spots. Get down to Disney World in Florida. Take your families and enjoy life, the way we want it to be enjoyed”
— Remarks by the President to Airline Employees. September 27, 2001


| March 16, 2017
“The first and most important thing to understand about politics is this: forget Right, Left, Center, socialism, fascism, or democracy. Every government that exists — or ever existed, or ever will exist — is a Kleptocracy, meaning ‘rule by thieves.’ Competing ideologies merely provide different excuses to separate the Productive Class from what they produce.

If the taxpayer/voters won’t willingly fork over to end poverty, then maybe they’ll cough up to fight drugs or terrorism. Conflicting ideologies, as presently constituted, are nothing more than a cover for what’s really going on, like the colors of competing gangs.” — Author L. Neil Smith

The American kleptocracy (a government ruled by thieves) continues to suck the American people down a rabbit hole into a parallel universe in which the Constitution is meaningless, the government is all-powerful, and the citizenry is powerless to defend itself against government agents who steal, spy, lie, plunder, kill, abuse and generally inflict mayhem and sow madness on everyone and everything in their sphere.

Case in point: in the same week that Wikileaks dropped its bombshell about the CIA’s use of spy tools to subject law-abiding Americans to all manner of government surveillance and hacking—a revelation that caused barely a ripple of concern among the citizenry—the government quietly and with little fanfare continued to wage its devastating, stomach-churning, debilitating war on the American people.

Incredibly, hardly anyone noticed.

This begs the question: if the government is overstepping its authority, abusing its power, and disregarding the rule of law but no one seems to notice—and no one seems to care—does it matter if the government has become a tyrant?

Here’s my short answer: when government wrongdoing ceases to matter, America will have ceased to be.

Just consider the devastation wrought in one week in the life of our American kleptocracy:

On Monday, March 6, police were given the go-ahead to keep stealing from Americans who were innocent of any wrongdoing.

In refusing to hear a challenge to Texas’ asset forfeiture law, the U.S. Supreme Court allowed Texas police to keep $201,000 in ill-gotten cash primarily on the basis that the seized cash—the proceeds of a home sale—was being transported on a highway associated with illegal drug trade, despite any proof of illegal activity by the owner.

Asset forfeiture laws, which have come under intense scrutiny and criticism in recent years, allow the police to seize property “suspected” of being connected to criminal activity without having to prove the owner of the property is guilty of a criminal offense.

On April 1, 2013, James Leonard was driving with a companion, Nicosa Kane, on U.S. Highway 59 in Texas when the vehicle was stopped by a state police officer for allegedly speeding and following another vehicle too closely.

A subsequent search of the vehicle disclosed a safe in the trunk, which Leonard explained belonged to his mother, Lisa Leonard, and contained cash.

When the police officer contacted Lisa Leonard, she confirmed that the safe’s contents belonged to her, that the contents constituted personal business, and that she would not consent to allowing the officer to open the safe. After police secured a search warrant, the safe was opened and found to contain $201,000 and a bill of sale for a home in Pennsylvania.

Neither the Leonards nor Kane were found to be in possession of illegal drugs. However, the state initiated civil forfeiture proceedings against the $201,100 on the ground that it was substantially connected to criminal activity because Highway 59 is reputed to be a drug corridor.

At trial, Lisa Leonard testified that the money was being sent to Texas so that she could use it to purchase a home for her son and Kane.

Both the trial and appeals courts affirmed the authority of state officials to seize and keep Leonard’s funds under the state’s asset forfeiture law, basing their ruling on wholly circumstantial evidence and the reputation of Highway 59.

Leonard then asked the U.S. Supreme Court to compel Texas to return her money, given that she was innocent of any crime. In refusing to hear the case on a technicality, the Supreme Court turned its back on justice and allowed the practice of policing for profit to continue.

On Tuesday, March 7, hacked information about the surveillance state was met with a collective shrug by the public, a sign of how indifferent the citizenry has become to living in an electronic concentration camp.

Wikileaks confirmed what we’ve suspected all along: the government’s ability to spy on law-abiding Americans is far more invasive than what we’ve been told. According to the Wikileaks Vault 7 data dump, government agencies such as the CIA and the NSA have been spying on the citizenry through our smart TVs, listening in on our phone calls, hacking into our computerized devices (including our cars), and compromising our security systems through the use of Trojan horses, spyware and malware.

As this Wikileaks revelation confirms, we now have a fourth branch of government. This fourth branch came into being without any electoral mandate or constitutional referendum, and yet it possesses superpowers, above and beyond those of any other government agency save the military. It is all-knowing, all-seeing and all-powerful. It operates beyond the reach of the president, Congress and the courts, and it marches in lockstep with the corporate elite who really call the shots in Washington, DC.

You might know this branch of government as Surveillance, but I prefer “technotyranny,” a term coined by investigative journalist James Bamford to refer to an age of technological tyranny made possible by government secrets, government lies, government spies and their corporate ties. Beware of what you say, what you read, what you write, where you go, and with whom you communicate, because it will all be recorded, stored and used against you eventually, at a time and place of the government’s choosing.

 Privacy, as we have known it, is dead.

On Wednesday, March 8, police were given further incentives to use the “fear for my life” rationale as an excuse for shooting unarmed individuals.

Upon arriving on the scene of a nighttime traffic accident, an Alabama police officer shot a driver exiting his car,mistakenly believing the wallet in his hand to be a gun. From the time the driver stumbled out of his car, waving his wallet in the air, to the time he was shot in the abdomen, only six seconds had elapsed.

Although the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals concluded “that a reasonable officer in Hancock’s position would have feared for his life,” the video footage makes clear that the courts continue to march in lockstep with the police, because no reasonable person would shoot first and ask questions later.

A report by the Justice Department on police shootings in Philadelphia, which boasts the fourth largest police department in the country, found that half of the unarmed people shot by police over a seven-year span were “shot because the officer saw something (like a cellphone) or some action (like a person pulling at the waist of their pants) and misidentified it as a threat.”

How and why?

What exactly are we teaching these young officers in the police academy when the slightest thing, whether it be a hand in a pocket, a man running towards them, a flashlight on a keychain, a wallet waved in a hand, or a dehumanizing stare can ignite a strong enough “fear for their safety” to justify doing whatever is deemed necessary to neutralize the threat, even if it means firing on an unarmed person?

On Thursday, March 9, police were given even more leeway in how much damage they can inflict on those they serve and the extent to which they can disregard the Constitution.

The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in favor of a police officer who allowed a police dog to maul a homeless man innocent of any wrongdoing. The case arose in 2010 after a police dog attacked a homeless man near an abandoned house where police were tracking a robbery suspect. The cop refused to call off the dog immediately, despite the man’s pleading and the fact that he did not match the description of the robbery suspect.

The homeless man suffered deep bites on his hand, arm and thigh, that required a nearly 16-inch skin graft, as well as severe bleeding, bruising, swelling and an arterial blood clot.

Incredibly, not only did the court declare that the police officer was protected by qualified immunity, which incentivizes government officials to violate constitutional rights without fear of repercussion, but it had the nerve to suggest that being mauled by a police dog is the equivalent of a lawful Terry stop in which police may stop and hold a person for questioning on the basis of “reasonable suspicion.”

Also on March 9, government officials assured the Michigan Supreme Court that there was nothing unlawful, unreasonable or threatening about the prospect of armed police dressed in SWAT gear knocking on doors at 4 a.m. and “asking” homeowners to engage in warrantless “knock-and-talk” sessions.

Although government lawyers insist citizens can choose to say no to such heavy-handed requests by police to conduct unwarranted interrogations, if such coercive tactics are allowed, it would give SWAT teams further incentive to further terrorize anyone even remotely—or mistakenly—suspected of wrongdoing without fear of repercussion.

On Friday, March 10, the military industrial complex continued to wage war abroad, while government agencies, including members of the military, remained embroiled in controversies over sexual misconduct.

   A day after military brass defended the U.S.-led raid in Yemen that killed 10 children and at least six women, Gen. Joseph Votel, the head of U.S. Central Command, informed members of Congress that even more U.S. troops were needed in Afghanistan to combat the Taliban. Some 8400 American troops have been stationed in Afghanistan since the U.S. invaded the country post 9/11. Approximately 400 more Marines are being sent to Syria to aid U.S. forces in their fight against ISIS.

That same day, news reports indicated that members of several branches of the U.S. military, including the Marines, have been using online bulletin boards to either share or solicit nude or explicit photos and videos of women in the military. One Facebook page for Marines, which has nearly 30,000 followers, contained graphic language about how the women photographed, some without their knowledge or consent, should be treated.

As the Center for Investigative Reporting (CIR) revealed, “One member of the Facebook group suggested that the service member sneaking the photos should ‘take her out back and pound her out.’ Others suggested more than vaginal sex: ‘And butthole. And throat. And ears. Both of them. Video it though … for science.’” According to CIR, the photo sharing began less than a month after the first Marine infantry unit was assigned women.

The FBI has also been getting in on the photo-sharing gig, only its agents have been distributing child porn, allegedly in an effort to catch consumers of child porn. Curiously, the Department of Justice has opted to drop its case against a man accused of child pornography rather than be forced to disclose the FBI’s tactics for spying on suspected child porn consumers and entrapping them as part of its Operation Pacifier sting.

What the case revealed was that for a little while, in its single-minded pursuit of lawbreakers, the FBI became a lawbreaker itself as the largest distributor of child pornography. All told, the FBI uploaded tens of thousands of images of child pornography to the “dark web.”

As reporter Bryan Clark points out:

At the intersection of technology and law, we’ve proven two things as the result of Operation Pacifier: 1. Government bodies have proven their willingness to circumvent — or even break — the law to capture suspected criminals it’s not even willing to prosecute. 2. We’re living in an age where — to agencies like the FBI — criminals and their victims are less important than the tools used to track them down.

It’s hard to argue on the side of an alleged pedophile. But in this case, the FBI was the pedophile’s equal. It was the agency, you’ll recall, that disseminated these images to some 150,000 registered members… this means the FBI perpetrated the same heinous crime it attempted to charge others with, all while securing what could result in zero convictions.

Mind you, this was just one week of shootings, degradation, excessive force, abuse of power and complicity in the American police state. Magnify the impact of these events 52 times over, because they are taking place every week in this country, and you will find yourself weak at the knees.

Somewhere over the course of the past 240-plus years, democracy has given way to kleptocracy, and representative government has been rejected in favor of rule by career politicians, corporations and thieves—individuals and entities with little regard for the rights of American citizens.

This dissolution of that sacred covenant between the citizenry and the government—establishing “we the people” as the masters and the government as the servant—didn’t happen overnight. It didn’t happen because of one particular incident or one particular president. It is a process, one that began long ago and continues in the present day, aided and abetted by politicians who have mastered the polarizing art of how to “divide and conquer.”

Unfortunately, there is no magic spell to transport us back to a place and time where “we the people” weren’t merely fodder for a corporate gristmill, operated by government hired hands, whose priorities are money and power.

Our freedoms have become casualties in an all-out war on the American people.

As I make clear in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, this war is being fought on many fronts, with bullets and tasers, with surveillance cameras and license readers, with intimidation and propaganda, with court rulings and legislation, with the collusion of every bureaucrat on the government’s payroll, and most effectively of all, with the complicity of the American people, who continue to allow themselves to be easily manipulated by their politics, distracted by their pastimes, and acclimated to a world in which government corruption is the norm.

How do we stop the hemorrhaging?

Start by waking up. Pay attention to what’s going on around you. Most of all, think for yourself.

As H. L. Mencken observed:

The most dangerous man to any government is the man who is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost inevitably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable, and so, if he is romantic, he tries to change it. And even if he is not romantic personally he is very apt to spread discontent among those who are.

The soldiers were part of Operation Sentinel – involving thousands of soldiers deployed to provide back-up to the police after the Charlie Hebdo attack in January 2015 and the Paris attacks of November 2015.

Witnesses said he shouted he was there to “die for Allah” as he seized hold of a soldier who was part of a military patrol at the airport.

He was then shot by the two other members of the patrol.

In an incident last month, a French soldier shoots machete-wielding attacker at Louvre who yelled “Allah is greatest”

A ‘radicalized’ Muslim known to intelligence agencies…naturally.

The Paris prosecutor, François Molins, said that during the confrontation at the airport, Belgacem shouted at the patrolmen: “I’m there to die by Allah. In any case there will be deaths.” Cliche variety

He was carrying a Koran, a container of petrol and matches…Ha! Naturally, what else?

 Belgacem was identified from his identity papers, which he had given to police before opening fire.  Ha! Wait, what?

Mr Molins said three of Belgacem’s relatives were in custody: his father, brother and a cousin. They went to a police station after Belgacem sent his brother a text message saying: “I’ve done something stupid. I’ve fired at police.”

A picture taken of a television screen shows a man lying on the ground of a terminal building at Paris' Orly airport after he was shot by French security forces for taking a weapon from a soldier

Probably his cell phone is in his hand? Oh, just read somewhere else that he left his cell phone in some bar.

Colonel Benoît Brulon, a military spokesman, said: “Vigilance is already extremely strong and procedures will not be changed. Soldiers will continue to patrol and protect the public,” he said.

Thousands of armed police and soldiers routinely patrol the streets of Paris, airports and railway stations. About 7,000 military personnel are deployed around the country under the state of emergency introduced after the Paris attacks. [upgraded now to 8,000]

UN Official Resigns Under Pressure After Calling Israel ‘Apartheid Regime’

Is the Israel regime psycho?

The document “concludes scientifically and according to international law that Israel has established an apartheid regime. But that’s not the point.

The head of the U.N. West Asia Commission has resigned under pressure, after refusing to withdraw a controversial report that said Israel has established an “apartheid regime” that discriminates against Palestinians.

Rima Khalaf, a Jordanian who heads the U.N. Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA), told reporters Friday in Beirut that she could not accept a demand by Secretary-General Antonio Guterres for her to withdraw the report.

“I asked him to rethink his decision, he insisted, so I submitted my resignation from the U.N.,” she said.

The report titled “Israeli Practices Toward the Palestinian People and the Question of Apartheid” was published earlier this week, and drew immediate criticism from U.N., U.S. and Israeli officials.

Khalaf, who is also a U.N. undersecretary-general, said the document “concludes scientifically and according to international law that Israel has established an apartheid regime.”

U.N. spokesman Stephane Dujarric said it was published without any prior consultations with the U.N. secretariat and that it does not reflect the views of the secretary-general. The 75-page report was deleted from the ESCWA website by U.N. officials, but copies are still circulating online.

Both Israel’s U.N. envoy, Danny Danon, and the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, welcomed Khalaf’s departure.

“Anti-Israel activists do not belong in the U.N. It is time to put an end to the practice in which U.N. officials use their position to advance their anti-Israel agenda,” Danon said.

“When someone issues a false and defamatory report in the name of the U.N.,” Haley said, “it is appropriate that the person resign.”
