re - Debunking the "The Saudis did 9-11" nonsense!

Debunking the "The Saudis did 9-11" nonsense!

And finally, here is some common sense that totally undermines the attempt to frame Saudi Arabia for 9-11. If Saudi Arabia really wanted to hurt the United States, they don't need to fly airplanes into skyscrapers to do it. All they have to do is ask for their money back, all at once. The resulting damage to the US financial system would make 9-11 look like a minor inconvenience in comparison.

And it would be perfectly legal for Saudi Arabia to ask for their money back.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I am reposting this article because three pro-Israel congressmen are claiming that there is a secret 9-11 document that they are demanding to be made public, one that places the blame for 9-11 on Saudi Arabia. Walter Jones was on the Ron Paul channel today pushing this latest attempt to protect Israel from the consequences of their actions.

This is actually a repeat of the same stunt they tried 2 years ago in which they tease the public with the story of a secret 9-11 document and try to get everyone to demand to see it. The document frames Saudi Arabia for 9-11, to protect Israel.

But as this article lays out, Saudi Arabia didn't have a motive to do 9-11, and if they wanted to hurt the US, they would not need airplanes into skyscrapers to do it.

Speaking Of "9-11 TRUTH" - Mr. Anthony Lawson's Latest

blackbird9

Speaking of "9-11 TRUTH", Mr. Anthony Lawson sent me his latest video on the subject this morning.

I have posted it here twice. Not only has it not made it to the WRH front page, but it keeps disappearing from the "Member Submitted News" section as well.

I think there may have been a misunderstanding by the moderator on Mr. Anthony Lawson's latest 9-11 video.

I think "1newsjunkie" is correct in his observation that this may have hit the "no plane at the Pentagon" zero-tolerance switch by the moderator.

In my work with Mr. Anthony Lawson over the years, I have never seen him as a "no plane at the Pentagon" person in the least.

I guess the working hypothesis many of us in the 9-11 TRUTH Community are currently pursuing is more of a "Planes=Yes, but most likely NOT the planes we were told were used on 9-11."

For me, this is based largely on the research by Mr. Christopher Bollyn in identifying the Israeli controlled Airline "Chop Shop" operations such as "ATASCO USA", "Israeli Aircraft Industries" (IAI), "Bedek Aviation Company", "Commodore Aviation", etc. . .

. . . as well as the research by "Pilots for 9-11 Truth" who have basically provided the same "That is physically impossible" arguments in the vein of the research done by "Architects and Engineers for 9-11 TRUTH" on WTC-7 when it comes to the aerodynamics and physics (especially VMO, wingspan, and engine placement and trajectories, etc) of the known flight paths and structural limitations of the aircraft in question.

the expression...BB, it is what it is.

Over the many years here I have suggested a member only area, where some basic rules are outlined.

It does suck to have your post deleted, especially when no reason given. But it is what it is. One could surmise it simply isn't a priority for our host, and leave it at that. We are here voluntarily, and the door remains open. I (tried to) quit this place a few times, with the last being a 7 month stretch away. Did anyone miss me? ha!

As far as the planes issue, I could give two fucks, there is so much evidence abound to prove the official story a lie with out the controversial aspects added IMO.

Think we can take a half a step back here? The impacted plug over this issue near absurd.

First off, I will never agree supporting this release akin to being one of them, a zio trash agent as our host emotionally implied  a month back.  It reminds me of our host reaction to Alex Jones words about those who fight the Jewish cancer in our lives. It doesn't feel to good to have your opinion outed as an enemy agent or hateful ignorance  .

Consider this, the congress critters may be implicating the Saudis, where as we truth seekers want more pieces of the puzzle. Further truths wont harm the critical thinker.

I suggest, the Saudi Intelligence involvement was at the hand of the mossad/cia and their role passive, acting as out right as double agents and / or other compartmentalized dupes.

Flashback BEX Alert - 2004

Michael "My Agent Is Rahm Emanuel's Brother" Moore releases his "controversial" documentary:

"Fahrenheit Bush & Saudis Did 9/11 . . . but absolutely no Israelis played a part"

"Fahrenheit 9/11 - Michael Moore (2004)"

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fahrenheit_9/11

The disclaimer should have read:

"No Zionists were harmed . . . or mentioned in the making of this film . . .

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3bnpTK5mgZQ

I was at one of those "Used DVD" stores last week. They had a special of "Buy 2 Get 2 Free". I picked up a copy of Director Michael Moore's 9/11 "misdirection" as one of my "freebies" . . .

. . . I thought it would make an interesting study. I hadn't watched it since it first came out in 2004 (Right after I had gotten "blacklisted" for trying to blow the whistle on the entire NSA/Telco/ISP/Manufacturer illegal electronic surveillance and data mining/profiling programs. . . but I still had my house & farm & marriage).

When I watched it last week, I definitely saw a VERY different film with "these eyes" than the one I saw in 2004.

Given the "kosher" nature of the 9-11 "False Flag" attacks, I wonder if the Zio-Plan from day 1 was to have "Osama bin Laden with al Qaeda" as the "Patsy of First Choice" . . .

. . . but keep the "Bush Family, Halliburton & The Saudis" as the "Back Up Patsies" in case the "Public Relations" Marketing campaign on the primary patsies didn't fly?

This 2004 Michael Moore hit-piece does more than enough to "seed" this "The Saudis Did 9-11" meme in the minds of the so-called "Liberal Progressive Left" . . .

. .. all those clever "Zealots for Tolerance" that will destroy you if you dare "question" either the official story of 9-11 . . . or "THE Holocaust(TM)" . . . or dare point out what is going on in Gaza right now.

Yet another "Palestinian Massacre" by the same Tribe that gave us those "Dancing Israelis" on 9-11.

Anyone ever get Misdirector Michael Moore to address the fact of the "Dancing Israelis" arrested on 9-11?. . . ;-)

Net neutrality activists are about to show you what an Internet 'slow lane' looks like

The realities of an Internet without net neutrality are about to become a bit more obvious.
In a move out of the anti-SOPA campaign playbook, Fight for the Future and other net neutrality activist groups have set up the Battle for the Net coalition, which plans to launch an “Internet slowdown day” later this month.
No actual traffic will be slowed down. Instead, participating sites will display embeddable modules that include a spinning “loading” symbol and information about contacting the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the White House, and members of Congress.
“The Internet slowdown is a symbolic and creative action that empowers websites to show their users a message that gives them a sense of what the Internet could be like if we lost net neutrality,” Evan Greer, the campaign manager for Fight for the Future, told The Daily Dot.
The FCC is currently considering a net neutrality proposal that would allow broadband providers to offer Internet companies, like Netflix or Google, “fast lane” service to deliver content more quickly and at a higher quality than companies who do not opt into such an offering.
Critics say this plan would divide the Internet into two tiers—a “fast lane” and a “slow lane”—and cripple technology startups that cannot afford to compete with larger, wealthier companies.
The net neutrality movement has been saddled by an opaque name and the technical complexity of the issue. It’s often difficult for open Internet advocates who geek out about the topic to explain it in layman’s terms to their friends and family. Fight for the Future hopes that the omnipresent loading symbol can help them make their case.
“The loading symbol is something that we all can understand,” Greer said. “It’s something we all get, and we know that we don’t like. It’s something that we’d see a heck of a lot more of if we lose net neutrality.”
Greer has seen the educational power of the loading symbol firsthand: “My four-year-old shakes his fist at the computer when the documentary he’s trying to watch doesn’t load and yells, ‘Comcast!’”
The Battle for the Net splash page says that “major websites and services are lined up to push hard on this.” Greer said that participants will be announced on September 2.
“We are taking a hint from the success of some of the movements of the past by allowing it to be a distributed action where anyone can participate,” she said.
Another tool in Battle for the Net’s promotional arsenal is this GIF, which pokes fun at slow loading bars to make a serious point about the possible consequences of corporate-friendly Internet fast lane policy.
Stop the Slow Lane gif
The GIF points users to Stop The Slow Lane, one of Fight for the Future’s other net neutrality portals.
Greer acknowledges that the Internet slowdown day evokes comparisons to the January 18, 2012 Internet blackout that marked a turning point in the campaign against SOPA. But she stressed that Fight for the Future and other groups see this latest effort as part of a longer-term approach to the issue.
“We get a hundred phone calls a day, or emails, from people who say, ‘When’s the next SOPA blackout?’” Greer said. “The reality is that this a movement; that was a moment. What we need is a movement that’s in this for the long haul.”
“We’re not looking to recreate events of the past,” Greer continued. “We’re looking to innovate and create events of the future, and currents. We can’t always be in crisis mode, we can’t always be rushing in at the last moment to save the Internet. We need to build a sustainable movement that can protect and foster and make the Internet better.”
Greer said she “couldn’t quantify” the amount of feedback she has received about the Internet slowdown effort, but added, “It’s Labor Day and I’m going to be laboring all day to respond to emails and communicate with the hundreds, possibly thousands, of different people and sites that have contacted us.”
Fight for the Future plans to post metrics at the end of the day on September 10—the FCC’s original deadline for net neutrality comments—listing how many comments and phone calls the effort generates. Their embeddable widgets will also let the group “generate a leaderboard of which sites or people are helping drive the most traffic,” according to Greer.
The FCC recently extended its deadline for comments on the agency’s net neutrality proposal to September 15, five days after Fight for the Future’s Internet slowdown day.
“There’s a lot of urgency in getting in a huge showing before this next comment deadline on September 15,” Greer said. “That doesn’t mean that this is the last moment or even necessarily the largest in this fight. This is going to push forward.”
In the meantime, prepare to see a lot of loading symbols when browsing the Internet on September 10. If Greer and her colleagues succeed, more people will begin to associate those annoying symbols with Internet fast lanes and other attacks on net neutrality.
“We want to show people what’s at stake if we lose net neutrality,” Greer said, “because it’s pretty difficult to explain it.”

Thousands of unexploded bombs and shells pose a danger to civilians in #Gaza, particularly children

The Children of Gaza: A Generation Scarred & Under Siege
PHOTO: Palestinian children travel to an UNRWA school to seek shelter after evacuating their homes near the border in Gaza City on July 13, 2014. (UN/Shareef Sarhan)

On August 24, nearly half a million Palestinian children in Gaza who were scheduled to start a new school year were unable to do so because of Israel's latest military assault on the occupied and besieged coastal strip, "Operation Protective Edge," which began on July 8 and killed more than 2100 people, including at least 1462 civilians. With a fledgling ceasefire agreed to on August 26 taking hold, the children of Gaza are struggling to cope with the horrors they experienced during Israel's brutal attack, and to return to some semblance of normalcy.
The following fact sheet provides an overview of the impact that Israel's latest assault and its siege and blockade have had on the children of Gaza. For further reference, see our recently released fact sheet, Gaza Crisis Update (August 22).


CHILDREN KILLED & INJURED BY ISRAEL'S LATEST ASSAULT

  • According to the United Nations, between July 7 and August 25 the Israeli military killed at least 495 Palestinian children in Gaza during “Operation Protective Edge.” The Al Mezan Center for Human Rights puts the number at 518, while the Palestinian Center for Human Rights puts it at 519. All three figures exceed the number of Palestinian children killed in the last two major Israeli assaults on Gaza combined, approximately 350 during “Operation Cast Lead” in 2008-9 and 35 in November 2012. The number of children killed also exceeds the total number of Israelis, civilians and soldiers, killed by Palestinians in the last decade.
  • According to the Palestinian Ministry of Health, between July 7 and August 20, 3106 Palestinian children were injured by the Israeli military in Gaza.
  • Of the more than 3100 children wounded, the UN estimates that 1000 of them will suffer a permanent disability as a result of their injury.
  • Thousands of unexploded bombs and shells pose a danger to civilians returning to areas they fled from during the fighting, putting children at particular risk.

CHILDREN TRAUMATIZED BY ISRAEL'S LATEST ASSAULT

The UN estimates that 373,000 children require direct and specialized psychosocial support (PSS), while all of Gaza’s approximately 900,000 children have been affected http://imeu.org/article/the-children-of-gaza-a-generation-scarred-under-siege?utm_content=buffer3baee&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer

NSA leaks by Edward Snowden have scared social media into silence: Study

‘A ‘spiral of silence’ has arisen on US social media since government spying revelations emerged from Edward Snowden last year, according to a new study.
Pew Research found that people were less likely to post their views or concerns about NSA surveillance on Facebook and Twitter than in person, due to fears that their views are not widely shared.’

Why Israel’s Bombardment of Gaza Neighborhood Left US Officers ‘stunned’ - Analysis: Military sources say Pentagon’s assessment of Shujaiya shelling alarmed even Secretary of State John Kerry

The cease-fire announced Tuesday between Israel and Palestinian factions — if it holds — will end seven weeks of fighting that killed more than 2,200 Gazans and 69 Israelis. But as the rival camps seek to put their spin on the outcome, one assessment of Israel’s Gaza operation that won’t be publicized is the U.S. military’s. Though the Pentagon shies from publicly expressing judgments that might fall afoul of a decidedly pro-Israel Congress, senior U.S. military sources speaking on condition of anonymity offered scathing assessments of Israeli tactics, particularly in the Shujaiya neighborhood of Gaza City.

One of the more curious moments in Israel’s Operation Protective Edge came on July 20, when a live microphone at Fox News caught U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry commenting sarcastically on Israel’s military action. “It’s a hell of a pinpoint operation,” Kerry said. “It’s a hell of a pinpoint operation.”

Rain of high-explosive shells

Kerry’s comment followed the heaviest bombardment of the war to that point, as Israeli artillery rained thousands of high-explosive shells on Shujaiya, a residential area on the eastern edge of Gaza City. A high-ranking U.S. military officer said that the source of Kerry’s apparent consternation was almost certainly a Pentagon summary report assessing the Israeli barrage on which he had been briefed by an aide moments earlier.

According to this senior U.S. officer, who had access to the July 21 Pentagon summary of the previous 24 hours of Israeli operations, the internal report showed that 11 Israeli artillery battalions — a minimum of 258 artillery pieces, according to the officer’s estimate — pumped at least 7,000 high explosive shells into the Gaza neighborhood, which included a barrage of some 4,800 shells during a seven-hour period at the height of the operation. Senior U.S. officers were stunned by the report.

Twice daily throughout the Israel Defense Forces’ (IDF) operation, a select group of senior U.S. military and intelligence officers at the Pentagon received lengthy written summaries of Israeli military action in Gaza. The reports — compiled from information gleaned from open sources, Israeli military officers with whom U.S. officials speak and satellite images — offered a detailed assessment of Israel’s battlefield tactics and the performance of its weaponry, a considerable portion of it supplied by the United States.

Although these reports shy from offering political judgments on the operation, a number of senior U.S. military officers who spoke about the contents of those daily reports were highly critical of some of the IDF’s tactics, particularly in the Israeli ground invasion of Shujaiya. An official spokesman at the Pentagon declined to comment on the contents of this article.

On July 16, the IDF dropped leaflets into Shujaiya, warning residents of an imminent Israeli attack and urging them to evacuate the area. The next day, after a short artillery preparation, three IDF units, led by the Golani Brigade, began a ground assault into the neighborhood to destroy Hamas bunkers and break up Hamas formations.

Nurse On Site Was Not Allowed to Tend Mike Brown

From a NY Times report:
Mr. Stone ran outside and saw two police officers, both both white men, standing near Mr. Brown, who was lying on his stomach, his arms at his sides, blood seeping from his head. Another neighbor, a woman who identified herself as a nurse, was begging the officers to let her perform CPR. They refused, Mr. Stone said, adding, “They didn’t even check to see if he was breathing.”

Officer who kissed repeatedly 16-year-old against her will not criminally charged - keeps job!



  If he was a teacher and kissed a student he would be out of a job and in jail.



NORTH PORT - A North Port Police K-9 officer who kissed a 16-year-old girl faces unpaid suspension and probation for the act but will not be criminally charged, Police Chief Kevin Vespia said.

The North Port Police Department will hold a news conference at 11 a.m. Friday to announce the results of a recent Internet Crimes Against Children operation. The North Port Police led the operation, which resulted in the arrest of 11 people.

The news conference will be held at the North Port City Hall in the second floor City Commission chambers.

In April, the teenager and her father reported to the North Port Police Department that she was kissed by Officer Shawn Rice against her will. According to the department's investigation reports, the teenager alleged Rice kissed her on the lips four separate times in January. 

The incident comes as North Port's Police Department is under scrutiny for the conduct of its officers. After reportedly sexually assaulting a woman at a party in May,

Kerry, Netanyahu call 'cut off,'

Gaza Strip (CBS News/CBSDC/AP)
The Times of Israel reports that a call between Secretary of State John Kerry and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was disconnected Sunday. The two reportedly have not spoken since.
State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said “their phone call was cut off” and that there was a “communications issue.”
“Sometimes calls get cut off. [I]t was a brief call, is what I’m trying to convey,” Psaki said when asked if the Israeli prime minister might have hung up on Kerry in anger. “There was nothing that interesting about it, no. That was not the case. That was not the case.”

DOZENS OF GOVERNMENT WATCHDOGS

Dozens of government watchdogs are sounding the alarm that the Obama administration is stonewalling them, in what is being described as an unprecedented challenge to the agencies they're supposed to oversee.
Forty-seven of the government's 73 independent watchdogs known as inspectors general voiced their complaints in a letter to congressional leaders this week. They accused several major agencies -- the Justice Department, the Peace Corps and the chemical safety board -- of imposing "serious limitations on access to records."
The inspectors general are now appealing to Congress to help them do their jobs uncovering waste, fraud, and mismanagement.
"Agency actions that limit, condition, or delay access thus have profoundly negative consequences for our work: they make us less effective, encourage other agencies to take similar actions in the future, and erode the morale of the dedicated professionals that make up our staffs," they wrote.
The letter to the chairmen and ranking members of relevant oversight committees in the House and Senate claimed agencies are withholding information by calling it "privileged."
In the letter, they said this interpretation poses "potentially serious challenges to the authority of every Inspector General and our ability to conduct our work thoroughly, independently, and in a timely manner."
House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., calls that extremely troubling.

Meet OIRA – The Secretive White House Office with Disturbing Regulatory Powers

But in practice, OIRA operates largely in secret, exempt from most requests under the Freedom of Information Act. It routinely declines to release the changes it has proposed, the evidence it has relied upon to make them, or the identities and affiliations of White House advisers and other agencies’ staff it has consulted. OIRA doesn’t even disclose the names and credentials of its employees other than its two most senior officials. In 2013 the Administrative Conference, an independent federal agency that reviews government administrative processes, released a study of OIRA’s effect on the application and interpretation of science the agencies gather and analyze to write rules. In examining a group of air-quality regulations, the study found that most of OIRA’s suggestions involved substantive changes. The report concluded that in some instances, the office has proposed changes to the basic science underlying the rules. These included revising numbers in tables created by the EPA, altering technical discussions and recommending different standards altogether.
- From ProPublica’s extremely important article: Lobbyists Bidding to Block Government Regs Set Sights on Secretive White House Office.
Have you ever heard of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, otherwise known as OIRA? Yeah, neither had I.
As someone who prides himself on being a relatively informed citizen, it is always shocking and disturbing when I learn of a powerful organization operating in the shadows of America’s faux democracy with which I am almost entirely unfamiliar. While I’m sure I’ve read many articles in which OIRA was mentioned, I had never fully understood exactly what it is, and how it is used by lobbyists and large corporate interests to further entrench the established oligarchic power structure. We can thank ProPublica for providing this service.

Let’s start off with a little background. OIRA was created in 1980, and shortly thereafter the Reagan administration greatly expanded its powers by signing an executive order that gave the office the authority to review all federal rules. Ever since then, it has been used to rewrite or entirely block regulations from almost every regulatory body imaginable. While the initial idea of a government body to review newly proposed regulations and gather additional feedback before implementation is a noble one, in practice it has amounted to nothing more than the censorship of science in the name of protecting large corporate interests. Most importantly, all of this happens in total darkness.
For example, ProPublica notes that OIRA is disturbingly exempt from most requests under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). For example, the public cannot even find out the qualifications of the people who make drastic changes to proposed environmental regulations. In one specific case regarding a proposed EPA rule, we see an economist and a lawyer completely overruling peer-reviewed science.
Significantly, OIRA doesn’t just interfere every once in a while. As ProPublic notes: “84% of the EPA’s proposed rules from 2001 to 2011 featured changes suggested by OIRA.” As mentioned earlier, the American public has no idea what was changed, why, or the qualifications of the people who made the changes. All of that is intentionally kept completely secret. Surely, in order to protect us from terrorists or something.
Even more worrisome, OIRA power is not only wielded for corporate profit protection purposes, but for political purposes as well. For example, according to OIRA’s governing executive order, it is supposed to complete its review within 90 days of receiving a proposed regulation. Nevertheless, “delays reached an all-time peak under President Obama between 2011 and 2013.”
High level EPA officials believe this was due to the 2012 election and not wanting to review any potentially controversial environmental regulations ahead of it. Quite often an OIRA strategy is to simply never review a proposed regulation until the regulatory body gives up and pulls it.
The anti-democratic, secretive and feudal power vested in the OIRA is an issue with which I was entirely unaware, but it is extremely important nonetheless. Here are some excerpts from ProPublica’s very important article:
 A series of executive orders over the past three decades have given OIRA significant authority to reassess rules on every imaginable subject, from health care to the environment to transportation

THE RINGWORM CHILDREN

On August 14, at 9 PM, Israel's Channel Ten television screened a documentary film which exposes the ugliest secret of Israel's Labor party founders: the deliberate mass radiation poisoning of nearly all Sephardi youths of a generation.
"The Ringworm Children" (translated in Hebrew as "100,000 Rays"), directed by David Belhassen and Asher Hemias, recently won the prize for "best documentary" at the Haifa International film festival, and in the past year has made the rounds of Jewish and Israeli film festivals around the world. But it had yet to come to Israeli television screens. The subject is the mass irradiation of hundreds of thousands of young Israeli immigrants from Middle Eastern countries -- Sephardim, as they are called today. The story goes like this:
In 1951, the director general of the Israeli Health Ministry, Dr. Chaim Sheba, flew to America and returned with seven x-ray machines, supplied to him by the American army.
They were to be used in a mass atomic experiment with an entire generation of Sephardi youths to be used as guinea pigs. Every Sephardi child was to be given 35,000 times the maximum dose of x-rays through his head. For doing so, the American government paid the Israeli government 300 million Israeli liras a year. The entire Health budget was 60 million liras. The money paid by the Americans is equivalent to billions of dollars today.
To fool the parents of the victims, the children were taken away on "school trips" and their parents were later told the x-rays were a treatment for the scourge of scalpal ringworm. 6,000 of the children died shortly after their doses were give

 

 

Young Jews Protest Israel's Offensive In Gaza, Call For End To 'Gratuitous Killing'

WASHINGTON -- As a 72-hour cease-fire between Israel and Hamas took effect on Tuesday, a group of young Jewish Americans held a protest against Israel's offensive outside the national office of the Jewish Federations of North America.
Approximately 50 protesters called on the group, which represents hundreds of affiliated organizations across North America, to condemn "the gratuitous killing of Palestinian civilians," "the bombing of U.N. schools" and "the use of live ammunition on non-violent protesters in the West Bank." In a letter delivered Tuesday to William Daroff, the Jewish Federations' senior vice president for public policy, they wrote:
We reject your organization’s promotion of the “well being of Jews worldwide” as you support a war that leaves our friends and cousins running to bomb shelters and only worsens the horrific status quo of a stateless and oppressed people, the Palestinians. Occupation and expulsion has left the Jewish community numb to the suffering of others and callous in the face of bloodshed.
The protesters, who were all dressed in black, timed the demonstration to coincide with Tisha B'Av, a day of mourning and fasting meant to commemorate the destruction of two temples in Jerusalem in ancient times. They read the names of Palestinians killed during the offensive and said a mourner's prayer while placing dozens of stones on the ground, a tradition at Jewish funerals and memorial services. When people walked by, they were handed photos of Gazans killed during the offensive.
The Jewish Federations' press spokesman said the organization declined to comment in response to the protest. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/08/05/jews-protest-israel_n_5651981.html

Married nearly 62 years, couple dies 4 hours apart

(AP) — After nearly 62 years of marriage, little separated Don and Maxine Simpson — not even death. The California couple died just four hours apart in July, spending their last moments side by side. He was 90 and she was 87. Granddaughter Melissa Sloan tells The Bakersfield Californian that her grandmother died first, and when her body was taken away, Don Simpson’s soul left with her. The couple met at a Bakersfield, California, bowling alley and married in 1952. A civil engineer, Don at one point worked for the U.S. Army in Germany.

Two Mexican nationals are in custody after authorities said they confessed to killing an off-duty U.S. Border Patrol agent


RAYMONDVILLE — Two Mexican nationals are in custody after authorities said they confessed to killing an off-duty U.S. Border Patrol agent and wounding the agent’s father.

Willacy County Sheriff Larry Spence said Border Patrol agent Javier Vega Jr., 36, of Kingsville, died of a gunshot wound to the chest and Javier Vega Sr. of La Feria was hospitalized with a shot to his hip.

Spence said authorities arrested Gustavo Tijernia, 30, of La Villa and Ismael Hernandez, 40, of Weslaco, both Mexican nationals from Matamoros, in connection with the Sunday evening shootings.
The men face charges of capital murder, attempted capital murder, four counts of aggravated robbery and tampering with evidence, Spence said.
The Vegas were shot while gar fishing with the agent’s wife, his mother, two children and another child in the Santa Monica area off FM 1420 about 3.5 miles east of the north levee, Spence said, adding the location was “their favorite spot.”
The suspects confessed to committing other robberies but investigators did not know if they were behind a series of robberies around CameronCounty fishing spots, Spence said.http://www.brownsvilleherald.com/premium/article_3763699e-1c51-11e4-bd74-0017a43b2370.html

35 Big U.S. Companies Still Cutting Jobs


from CommoditieFutures:
Investors will be focused on jobs today with the release of payroll data and unemployment reports. But so far, stocks have largely shrugged off job cut announcements by large companies in aggregate.
There are at least 35 companies in the Standard & Poor’s, including computer chipmakers Intel (INTC) and Texas Instruments (TXN), tech giant Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) and retailer Target (TGT), that have this year announced layoffs, job cuts or plant closures expected to affect workers, according to a USA TODAY analysis of data from S&P Capital IQ, which draws upon multiple sources including local newspapers and company press releases. It’s not necessarily an exhaustive list, but it gives investors an idea of job reductions at big companies and where they’re coming from.

VA hospital guards Maced veteran and gave him concussion after he complained about nurse and tried to leave

NaturalNews) The VA hospital system has come under fire recently, ironically around the same time that Obamacare enrollments were initially pushed. The main concerns have been VA eligibility applications "lost" and long waits that have left many needing urgent care or having gone beyond care, as in dead. There have also been incidents of unwarranted VA police brutality on hospital premises.

One incident of excessive force for no real reason occurred in Oklahoma City's VA Medical Center, and the victim of that attack, Joe Reece, has filed a suit against the U.S. Government. Talk about David and Goliath! Joe praised his doctor in the hospital, Dr. Sopukro Tienabeso, but complained to him that he couldn't get along with the attending nurse.

But the nurse refused to leave the room, angering Joe enough to quip, "I am leaving and going to the car." He got up but was stopped from leaving by VA Security Guards. When Joe insisted on going out the hospital door, the guards Maced him and threw him to the floor face down.

Joe suffered cuts, bruises and a concussion along with neck injuries. He was already suffering from cervical spinal stenosis and degenerative disk disease. The guards were cleared of wrongdoing by civilian police, because they were performing within the limits of their jobs. Translation: They were just "following orders." [1]

But why bother forcefully retrieving someone who's dissatisfied and wants to leave from a hospital that's in an overburdened system to begin with?

VA Security Guards kill a vet in California

Jonathon Montano had waited four hours for in the Loma Linda, California, VA hospital with an IV shunt in his arm when he decided to leave there and try the Long Beach VA Hospital.

He announced his intention to the VA staff, explaining jthat he'd keep the shunt in place so the Long Beach VA facility wouldn't need to perform that procedure over again. He wasn't happy, but he wasn't violent.

He told his wife to get the car and come by for him at the hospital doors. But the VA staff notified those VA Police Security guard goons itching for action, and they acted like Montano was a terrorist with a bomb strapped onto him instead of a 65-year-old veteran with serious health problems.

He was jumped on, thrown onto the floor and restrained with a knee to the neck applied with full body weight.

His wife realized that something wasn't right as she waited lengthily without seeing him. When she went into the hospital, she was told that her husband was in ER after suffering a stroke. An attending physician claimed that he had fallen down the stairs after experiencing a stroke. However, a nurse pulled her aside and explained what had really happened.

In fact, the stroke was caused by injuries sustained from the overzealous security guards, whose attack severed Jonathon's carotid artery, an artery in the neck that feeds the brain, causing a clot and resulting in the stroke.

Jonathon died within two weeks. Mrs. Montano has filed a suit, not for delays or medical negligence, but for the police brutality, the subsequent lies and the way her husband's desire to leave was handled. [2]

The VA system's overloaded bureaucratic mess

The VA healthcare system has been servicing thousands financially eligible ex-military personnel for general health since WWII and on. They're not just young wounded veterans returning from Iraq or Afghanistan. Many of these older folks with health issues are getting angry about the VA health system today. [3]

Some of the younger guys are traumatized, ignored and homeless, and some of them have committed suicide while their applications were being destroyed or ignored in favor of using the VA System's personnel to help out with the Obamcare campaign. According to one whistleblower, Scott Davis, his complaints about using VA personnel for registering Obamacare applicants were ignored.

Davis learned, "We don't discuss veterans. We do not work for veterans. That is something that I learned after working there. Our customer is the VA central office, the White House and the Congress. The veterans are not our priority. So whatever the initiatives are or the big ticket items, that is what we focus on." [4]

It's estimated that at least 10,000 veteran eligibility applications were purged during the Obamacare registration push. Oh, by the way, eligible veterans registered in VA's healthcare system are exempt from Obamacare requirements and penalties.

Puerto Rico declares epidemic as chikungunya virus continues to spread unabated


chikungunyaNaturalNews) The Puerto Rican government declared on July 17 that the mosquito-transmitted disease chikungunya has reached epidemic proportions. Puerto Rico is only the latest country to fall prey to the disease, which has been sweeping the Caribbean since its arrival in late 2013.

According to the Pan American Health Organization, a total of 354,000 cases are suspected or confirmed across the Caribbean as a July 11.

"We're seeing an epidemic ripping through a naive population, with a very large number of cases in the Dominican Republic and elsewhere," said Peter Hotez of Baylor College of Medicine. "There is every reason to believe we could see similar epidemics along the US Gulf Coast maybe later this summer or starting next year."

Virus causes severe pain

Chikungunya, first identified in Africa in 1953, is characterized by symptoms similar to those of dengue fever, another mosquito-borne illness.

"As with dengue fever, there is a high fever," said emergency room doctor Dominic Martinello of Anna Jaques Hospital in Newburyport, Mass. "There will be a high fever of up to 104 degrees. There will be pretty significant joint pain and possibly a rash. There may be nausea and vomiting, but rarely would a patient die.

"The incubation period is about one to 12 days. The person may have the fever for one or two days. The joint pain, while it can be severe, can last for five to seven days and then the person should recover."

Chikungunya first arrived in Puerto Rico in late May, and more than 200 cases have been confirmed mostly in or around the capital.

Disease has already reached mainland U.S.

Cases of chikungunya have already been reported in the mainland United States as well. Just a week after the Puerto Rico announcement, Florida health officials announced two confirmed cases of people who had contracted the disease from local mosquitoes. This marks the first evidence of the disease becoming endemic to the mainland.

"There is definitely a lot of discussion about this and we are watching," said Beth Daly, chief of infectious disease surveillance at the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services. "There have actually been 497 cases of this virus in the U.S., but that includes the territories like Puerto Rico. We have seen 300 cases in 30 states, but with the exception of the two Florida cases, all have been in returning travelers."

It remains to be seen whether chikungunya will be able to establish itself on the US mainland over the long term. According to Dr. Joseph Gross of River Valley Infectious Disease Specialists, three factors are required for a mosquito-borne virus to colonize a new area: the virus itself, a high enough population for the disease to spread and the correct species of mosquito. In the case of chikungunya, the mosquitoes must be of the species Aedes aegypti or Aedes albopictus. While both species can be found in the southeastern United States and parts of the Southwest, only A. albopictus is found throughout the mid-Atlantic states and the lower Midwest.

"It will be interesting to see what happens," Dr. Gross said. "We have seen this before, with West Nile virus and with dengue fever. Dengue did not take a hold in the country, but West Nile did. It may be climate related, but there are other factors that could make the difference as well."

There is no cure for chikungunya, and no treatment other than painkillers for symptomatic relief. The best way to avoid contracting it, health experts say, is to prevent mosquito bites by wearing long pants, long sleeves and insect repellent. For natural, nontoxic ways to repel bugs, check into using garlic and essential oils.

Washington’s Alliance With Traffickers of Human Organs And the cover-up in the West by Justin Raimondo,

Washington’s Alliance With Traffickers of Human Organs
And the cover-up in the West
by , August 06, 2014
Remember the Kosovo war? If you’re under 30, it’s just a blip on the historical screen, one that has far less impact on your consciousness than the subsequent wars of the post-9/11 era – and yet it was an important milestone on the road to where we are today. It was in Kosovo that the complicity of government and media in ginning up a new era of wars really began to take on dimensions we have all grown quite used to.
Back then, CNN was the entirety of the cable news universe, and Christiane Amanpour – married to State Department spokesman James Rubin – became the head cheerleader for dragging us into that conflict. Railing about alleged atrocities by the Serbs against the supposedly pacific Kosovars, Amanpour’s role as media warmonger-in-chief was complemented by the union of neocons and Clintonian "progressives" who demanded American military intervention in the name of "humanitarianism."
It was in Kosovo that the "responsibility to protect" doctrine – later run up the flagpole during the Libyan intervention – was first rolled out: it was our moral duty, we were told, to go to war against Serbia. The evil Serbs were the villains. The Kosovars were the Good Guys. As a report by Dick Marty, of the European Union investigative team looking into war crimes committed by the Kosovo "Liberation" Army (KLA), put it in his 2010 report:
"The appalling crimes committed by Serbian forces, which stirred up very strong feelings worldwide, gave rise to a mood reflected as well in the attitude of certain international agencies, according to which it was invariably one side that were regarded as the perpetrators of crimes and the other side as the victims, thus necessarily innocent. The reality is less clear-cut and more complex."
The Serbs-guilty-Kosovars-innocent narrative pushed by the interventionists has stuck to this day, in spite of the ongoing victimization of the remaining Serbs – who have been ethnically cleansed from most of the region, after witnessing their homes and churches burned to the ground while the "allies" – who still occupy Kosovo – stood by and watched. As it turned out, NATO did more than merely stand by and watch – according to Marty they actively covered up numerous war crimes committed by the KLA and the current leadership of Kosovo, including the practice of trafficking in human organs torn from the bodies of Serb prisoners of war.
Clint Williamson of the EU Special Investigative Task Force has told reporters:
“Certain elements of the KLA intentionally targeted the minority populations with acts of persecution that included unlawful killings, abductions, enforced disappearances, illegal detentions in camps in Kosovo and Albania, sexual violence, other forms of inhumane treatment, forced displacements of individuals from their homes and communities, and desecration and destruction of churches and other religious sites.”http://original.antiwar.com/justin/2014/08/05/washingtons-alliance-with-traffickers-of-human-organs/

With a cease-fire between Israel and militants hours old, Nafez al-Khudari and his family collected their mattresses, blankets and clothes and began hitchhiking back to the Gaza City home they’d fled almost a month earlier.
The drive across the territory’s biggest city yesterday from a United Nations refuge in the west to the Shuja’iya neighborhood was slow going. They stared out of the car windows at crowded, rubble-strewn streets and the remains of buildings crushed by Israeli artillery and aircraft. Men, women and children clambered over garbage and masonry in search of anything worth salvaging.http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2014-08-06/scenes-of-destruction-await-gazans-as-truce-leads-displaced-home.html

Gun Owners Could Face New Restrictions Some lawmakers toying with using insurance as a deterrent to rising gun ownership.


Gun liability insurance: Make it mandatory?
By Marcie Geffner • Bankrate.com
Should owners of firearms be required to carry gun liability insurance to cover the potential risks their weapons pose?
Or do law-abiding gun owners instead need protection from insurers who may charge them more for home and auto coverage or even deny them coverage when they "keep and bear arms"?
Florida outlaws insurer gun bias
In Florida, gun advocates have gone a step further and reframed the gun insurance debate. They maintain that instead of needing the protection of insurance, gun owners need protection from insurance companies -- which might charge them more or refuse them home or auto coverage for owning firearms.
The Florida Legislature agreed and recently passed a bill banning this practice, despite scant evidence that it even exists. The bill was signed into law by Gov. Rick Scott.
Do insurers discriminate against gun owners?
"No -- that bill is trying to prevent something that isn't even happening now," says McChristian. "It's been labeled a solution in search of a problem, because there is no problem."
Matt Carlucci, a veteran State Farm insurance agent in Jacksonville, Florida, agrees. He calls the bill "a tempest in a teapot" stirred up by the gun lobby as a "pre-emptive" move in response to calls for mandatory gun liability insurance.

Russian 'No Fly Zone' : Putin Considering Ban on Western Airlines Using Russian Airspace


Russia’s president Vladimir Putin ordered his government to draw up retaliatory measures as a riposte to western sanctions amid signs Moscow was considering a ban on western airlines using Russian airspace.
Moscow's Vedomosti business daily said the Russian government was now considering whether to strike back at the European Union by placing a total or partial ban on its airlines' flights over Siberia to Asia.
In his first comments on the broader punitive measures imposed by the US and the EU against Russia in the past two weeks, Mr Putin said he had told his government to prepare retaliatory moves.
Any restriction would reverse an agreement between Moscow and European airlines dating back to the 1970s. It has allowed airlines to save up to $30,000 (€22,000) in fuel and fees on each Trans-Siberian route and shave up to 4,000km off each journey. Here

“That was our bad.” US government “spoils Glenn Greenwald's” the Intercept’s scoop, tips off rival outlet

Before getting into the “inside media baseball” aspect of this story, let’s get one thing out of the way first: The real newsworthy item here is that the US National Counterterrorism Center’s list of known or suspected terrorists doubled between March 2010 and the end of 2013 from about 550,000 people to 1.1 million people.
According to the Intercept, 680,000 of these people are on a Terrorist Screening Database that is shared with “local law enforcement agencies, private contractors, and foreign governments.” And out of those, 40 percent have “no recognized terrorist group affiliation.”
It’s a huge story and a major scoop for the Intercept, the subsidiary of Pierre Omidyar’s First Look Media organization which, with respect, has seen its share of growing pains. Or at least it would have been a major scoop had the Associated Press not published the story a few minutes earlier. Was the Intercept simply too slow on the uptake? Did they get bested fair and square by a rival publication?http://pando.com/2014/08/05/that-was-our-bad-us-government-spoils-the-intercepts-scoop-tips-off-rival-outlet/

Britain's first armed police on routine patrol -

Incident in Inverness
In a little-noticed move, a small number of police officers are now routinely carrying sidearms while on patrol in much of Scotland - the first in the UK outside Northern Ireland to do so. How did this come about, and does it alter the relationship between the constabulary and the public?
Saturday night in Inverness. Outside a McDonald's restaurant, a scuffle between two men breaks out. Three police officers arrive to intervene. So far, so mundane.
Except that strapped around the hips of each of the policemen approaching the brawl is a holstered Glock 17 semi-automatic pistol.
It's a sight that once would have been unthinkablehttp://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-28656324

Close observers of the surveillance leaks have for months speculated that there may be another leaker besides Snowden. The Intercept, a channel of First Look Media launched by journalist Glenn Greenwald, has routinely published leaks from Edward Snowden since it formed earlier this year.

Ebola Outbreak Could Be Much Worse Than Thought



Tuesday August 5, 2014 8:24 AM UPDATED: Tuesday August 5, 2014 8:35 JOHANNESBURG, South Africa - The worst outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus in history could actually be much worse than the official death toll reflects. Already, the World Health Organization says 887 people have died, but a top doctor working at the heart of the outbreak in West Africa says many cases are going unreported. The senior doctor, who works for a leading medical organization in Liberia, explained to CBS News' Debora Patta that what has helped set this outbreak apart from previous ones is the virus' spread in urban areas. One of the epicenters of the disease is the Liberian capital of Monrovia, home to about a million people, or almost a quarter of the country's population. The doctor, who spoke to CBS News on condition of confidentiality, said the disease is spinning out of control in Africa partly because it is extremely difficult to contain it in a sprawling, congested city center.
