Inadmissible Crimes Against Humanity - The Division at the Heart of the Israel/Palestine Conflict

For decades Palestinians have lived on the edge of annihilation, their homeland steadily annexed until just a slither of the original remains. It's a story that just won't go away, even for those thousands of miles away, who try to cover their ears and eyes from the shame which has befallen the ruthless oppressor of this now tiny peninsular of land and its battle weary people.

In 1975, I worked on a kibbutz called Rosh Hanikra, in Northern Israel. It's main income was derived from intensive commercial avocado pear production. There were maybe four hundred inhabitants. The social experiment known as kibbutziem grew up after World War Two, when thousands of European Jews,who had survived Hitler's pogroms, moved to Israel, with the intent of making it their new home.

Busting Open the Chemtrail Denial Subterfuge

by Julian Rose

As we swing into the New Year, many are going to be feeling more than a little impatient that the perpetrators of the toxic air-born emissions which create engineered clouds over vast areas of our skies, still remain largely anonymous.

Anonymous by name, but no doubt to be found within the ranks of military industrial proponents and psychopathic secret society hegemons: those who hide behind the 1991 Hughes Aircraft atmospheric aerosol patent. The patent that formalized an engineering technique which alters the climate and sickens the planetary population with its debilitating fall-out.

There is a red line test that almost instantly reveals people's awareness about these, and related, military activities. Just put the question “What do you think about 9/11? And how do you feel about chemtrails?” You might be surprised to find that those who you consider reasonably intelligent and quite thoughtful individuals, appear to be neither when asked to think about these two actualities.

This response to the first question would be quite typical “It's obvious, 9/11 was an al-Qaeda mission led by bin Laden. There's nothing suspicious about it.” And on chemtrails “They don't exist”.

What one runs into when confronted with such an unquestioning response, creates a genuine human dilemma. Where can one turn if fellow human beings are unwilling to examine, in any detail, incriminating evidence that stands behind such crime's against humanity?

Brainwashing Our Babies: The Corporate Takeover of Childhood (With Documentary)

by Gavin Nascimento, A New Kind Of Human

It blows my mind how many adults mindlessly leave their children unattended with the TV set, thinking that their little ones are simply being entertained, when in fact they are being brainwashed.

Several studies have now shown that babies recognize corporate logos before they can even read.

"We Don't Want to Repress": Police in Honduras Refuse Orders to Stamp Out Pro-Democracy Protests

by Common Dreams

Amid widening violence and ongoing protests, members of the Honduras National Police force—including those within the U.S.-trained units known as the Cobras—say they are refusing  to obey orders from the right-wing government of the incumbent president, Juan Orlando Hernández, who has used the security forces to crackdown on demonstrators and imposed a curfew amid allegations of voter fraud in recent elections.

"We are tired. And our job is to give peace and security to the Honduran people, not repress them. We want all Hondurans to be safe." —Member of Cobra police unit 

"We want peace, and we will not follow government orders – we're tired of this," a spokesperson for the police told reporters outside the national police headquarters on Monday. "We aren't with a political ideology. We can't keep confronting people, and we don't want to repress and violate the rights of the Honduran people."

The Megalomania of Modern America

by Julian Rose

As many already know, on September 18, 2017 the Senate passed a bill authorizing a further $700 billion to be injected into the coffers of the Pentagon's military industrial complex, whose primary role is ceaseless global hegemonic expansion, under the deceitful banner of 'protecting the national interest'.

The US already has over 1,000 military bases spread all over the world. Each exerting a strong geopolitical influence within its particular domain. The budget which supports these bases and the troops, air power and naval presence which goes with them, amounts to 54% of Federal discretionary spending.

The feverish determination to retain and expand the US position as the planet's number one bully boy, has been accompanied by an unprecedented escalation in the rhetoric of war and violence.

The vitriolic exchanges between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Yong-un, bear testimony to the levels of depravity each party is prepared to descend to in threatening the other with various shades of annihilation. Within the shifting parameters of this slanging match, it is worth noting that North Korea actually has something to defend: its sovereignty and independence from the ever present threat of US hegemony.

Saudi Arabia Is Destroying an Entire Country — and the US Is Helping Them Do It

by Darius Shahtahmasebi, The Anti-Media

Following an air strike in Yemen that killed at least 12 civilians, a senior United Nations official has condemned Saudi Arabia’s actions, asserting the Kingdom has shown a complete disregard for human life.

According to Reuters, three women and six children from the same family were killed in their sleep during the dawn air strike conducted the Saudi-led coalition. Medical officials noted that the youngest of the children was just two years old. Ten others were wounded, according to the U.K.’s humanitarian coordinator in Yemen, Jamie McGoldrick.

In an official statement, McGoldrick said he was “deeply concerned” about the Saudi-led action, also accusing Saudi Arabia of violating international law:

Parents Catch FBI In Plot To Force Mentally Ill Son To Be A Right Wing Terrorist

by Matt Agorist, TFTP

It’s become a near-weekly occurrence. Somewhere in some state, the FBI will announce that they’ve foiled yet another terrorist plot and saved lives. However, as the data shows, the majority of these cases involve psychologically diminished patsies who’ve been entirely groomed, armed, and entrapped by FBI agents. Simply put, the FBI manufactures terror threats and then takes credit for stopping them.

While many of these cases have garnered attention and been exposed in the alternative media, a recent case out of Oklahoma sets a new low for FBI and exposes how insidious these plots can be.

Here's Your Chance to Convince the FDA to Reclassify CBD Oil as Medicine

by Carey Wedler, The Anti-Media

On Monday, the FDA invited the public to submit comments on the potential benefits of cannabidiol (CBD), along with a handful of other substances.

Published in the federal register, the announcement explained that the FDA is “requesting interested persons to submit comments concerning abuse potential, actual abuse, medical usefulness, trafficking, and impact of scheduling changes on availability for medical use of 17 drug substances.” The agency will eventually submit a report including this public input to the World Health Organization, which will use the information to make decisions regarding legal access to the substances. The FDA will collaborate with the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to produce the report.

According to the FDA document:

These comments will be considered in preparing a response from the United States to the World Health Organization (WHO) regarding the abuse liability and diversion of these drugs. WHO will use this information to consider whether to recommend that certain international restrictions be placed on these drugs. This notice requesting comments is required by the Controlled Substances Act (the CSA).

Proud Mother Says Charlottesville Victim Heather Heyer 'Was About Stopping Hatred'

by Jon Queally, Common Dreams

“I want her death to be a rallying cry for justice and equality and fairness and compassion,” says mother of Heather Heyer. “No mother wants to lose a child, but I’m proud of her.”

Though there is much more to learn about the lone victim—identified by family and friends on Sunday as Heather Heyer, a 32-year-old paralegal from Virginia—who lost her life in the vicious attack in Charlottesville on a group of anti-racist demonstrators, the last public message she left behind offered at least a semblance of what inspired her to march against hate on Saturday: “If you’re not outraged, you’re not paying attention.”

The well-worn but still evocative saying is the banner image on Heyer’s public Facebook page, receiving increased attention since her horrific death on Saturday afternoon when an individual—the police have arrested and charged 20-year-old James Fields Jr. with murder—intentionally slammed a car into people protesting a rally by neo-Nazi and white supremacists in the city.
