Stopping first in Oman, Kerry held talks with the ruling Sultan, one of the string of monarchical dictators that constitute, together with Israel, the foundation of US influence in the Middle East. The secretary of state’s visit coincided with the signing of a $2.1 billion deal between the absolute monarchy and Raytheon Corp. for the sale of advanced weapons systems, including Avenger fire units, Stinger missiles, and Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missiles, part of a ring of steel that Washington has sought to erect around Iran.
Adam Kokash calls on "American Revolution Army" of armed gun-owners to march on 50 State Capitals as well as on Washington ~ link ~ Talk about a Zionist plot for a massive False Flag against private gun-ownership!!! Don't fall for this shit!!! Stay away. Some people are pushing a petition against this, I don't believe in petitions in this police-state era, but I agree that we need to make it clear that this is a scam that is really against the Second Amendment.

Erekat reiterated the importance of "continuing the efforts being exerted by the UN and NGO in cooperation with Palestinian parties to remove the landmines planted around the occupied West Bank."
Jordan and Israel 'as one' over Syria and Iran attack ~ link ~ What the nuts in the Israeli Government want is a Middle East that is 'as one' with Israel ... always with Israel in the driver's seat of course. That will not happen and the attempt to achieve it will destroy the entire World!!! Stirling
Mission Creep: Full-scale War on Syria? ~ link ~ Obama pays no attention to public opinion. Overtly he resists arming opposition fighters. Covertly he’s been doing it all along. Hypocrisy defines his administration. He’s a war criminal multiple times over. He remains unaccountable for unconscionable crimes.
Israel’s a co-conspirator. Both countries are longstanding imperial partners. Israel’s been upping the stakes in Syria. Previous articles explained.

We have a word for the conscious slaughter of a racial or ethnic group: genocide. And one for the conscious destruction of aspects of the environment: ecocide. But we don’t have a word for the conscious act of destroying the planet we live on, the world as humanity had known it until, historically speaking, late last night. A possibility might be “terracide” from the Latin word for earth. It has the right ring, given its similarity to the commonplace danger word of our era: terrorist.
In the case of the terrarists -- and here I’m referring in particular to the men who run what may be the most profitable corporations on the planet, giant energy companies,like ExxonMobil, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, BP, and Shell -- you’re the one who’s going to pay, especially your children and grandchildren. You can take one thing for granted: not a single terrarist will ever go to jail, and yet they certainly knew what they were doing.
Woolwich: False Flag: Inside Job: Fake - with photos ~ link ~ also see ~ link ~ This is a really poor False Flag event. Lately the False Flag events have been getting more and more obvious. I suspect it is a combination of two different reasons that are causing this. The globalists/Zionists, who are doing this, have utter contempt for the intelligence of most people and figure many will buy into whatever bullshit they dish out, and many do. Additionally, they want those who have the balls to reject the official line and can think for themselves, to be aware that they (the Zionists/globalist banksters) can do anything they want and get by with it 'in broad daylight', as a fear inducing example of their power.

"I asked the on-site police officer in our school:
"I bet your briefing this morning at the station was an intense one.
"Officer: I was expecting exactly that, but it was just too odd. I asked why there's no briefing, believing we'd be told which streets to be in and what to look out for, but no. Nothing. It was as if it hadn't happened.
"'In fact, the skipper said 'it didn't happen.'
"He told me he didn't recognise any of the officers on his own patch at the scene either nor any of the members of the public, despite always seeing the same people."
Why do people feel poor even though the stock market is at a record high? ~ link ~ The stock market provides a beautiful scent of success although most Americans will only catch a whiff of that aroma. The S&P 500 is now up 145 percent from the gloomy low reached in 2009. Even though this unrelenting trend upwards has added wealth to a few, the majority of Americans are still seeing the purchasing power of their dollars slowly erode. The one secure location for wealth in housing is now being usurped by Wall Street as investors begin to invest heavily in the rental real estate business. Speculation in the markets is once again booming. Japan had a mini-crash this week but the media cycle continues to pretend that printing your way into prosperity is somehow as easy as having central bankers pushing play on the iPod and expecting the hits to come one after another. The reason you likely do not feel the big gains of the recent run is because most of the gains have come from artificially low interest rates and companies slashing wages and squeezing profits out of current workers.
Spain has already gone bankrupt. It is not spoken of in this fashion, no one mentions it in public but that is the truth of it. The money, some $172 billion, was funneled to the banks and not to the sovereign in one more European ruse to distract everyone but the results are the same. Now it is becoming apparent that even this amount of money was not enough so more will have to be given. The money will go to the Spanish banks, the debt will be guaranteed by Spain, the contingent liability will not be counted as part of Spain's debt to GDP ratio but we will know the truth of it. Whatever direct money from Spain that goes into their banks will be called an "investment" and put on the left side of their balance sheet as an asset and the mockery will continue but I can still read a ledger; thank you very much.
Student science experiment finds plants won't grow near Wi-Fi router ~ link ~ This reminds me of the fact that if you use cooled microwave heated water to water your plants that they will die. There are a lot of dangers in the modern world and in many cases those in control place greed and corporate profits ahead of human life and morality. Stirling
Five ninth-grade young women from Denmark recently created a science experiment that is causing a stir in the scientific community.
