"We live in a dirty and dangerous world. There are some things the general public does not need to know and shouldn’t. I believe democracy flourishes when the government can take legitimate steps to keep its secrets, and when the press can decide whether to print what it knows." -- Katherine Meyer Graham, Washington Post publisher

VIDEO: Hillary talks like candidate at NY immigration protest

Hillary Clinton isn’t going to cede the limelight to any 2020 presidential candidates.

The twice-failed candidate joined one of hundreds of protests across the country to complain about the conditions the crushing wave of illegal aliens is facing in detention and processing centers.

Hillary joined Bill and about 50 other liberal elites in Chappaqua, New York on Friday night to slam the Trump administration and the president’s immigration policies at a “Lights For Liberty” protest.

Reports: ICE Fails to Make Arrests in Early New York City Raids

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) reportedly attempted raids in New York City on Saturday, but no arrests were made. According to the New York Daily News, federal agents conducted the operation in Brooklyn’s Sunset Park, where they rang multiple doorbells in an apartment building but later left without taking any illegal aliens into custody.

The Wall Street Journal reports that agents were turned away because they showed up without warrants. A similar situation occurred in Harlem, the Journal states.

“As they were leaving, we heard them say, ‘We’ll be back,’” one woman from Sunset Park told the Daily News.

Were the Atomic Bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki a War Crime and a Crime Against Humanity?

Was President Harry Truman “a murderer,” as the renowned British analytic philosopher Gertrude Elizabeth Anscombe once charged? Were the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki indeed a war crime and a crime against humanity, as she and other academic luminaries have publicly claimed? A Distinguished Professor of Philosophy and Ethics at Oxford and Cambridge, who was one of the 20th century’s most gifted philosophers and recognizably the greatest woman philosopher in history, Dr. Anscombe openly called President Truman a “war criminal” for his decision to have the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki leveled by atomic bombs in August 1945 (Rachels & Rachels 127). According to another academic critic, the late American historian Howard Zinn, at least 140,000 Japanese civilians were “turned into powder and ash” in Hiroshima.

US Naval Coalition In Gulf – A Provocation Too Far

The move is but the latest in a series of efforts by the Trump administration to mobilize Arab allies into a more aggressive military stance towards Iran. It follows recent visits to the region by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Adviser John Bolton, both of whom have been urging a more organized military front led by the US to confront Iran.

The latest naval coalition proposed by General Dunford will be charged with escorting oil tankers as they pass through the Strait of Hormuz exiting the Persian Gulf to the Indian Ocean, and also through the Bab al Mandab entrance to the Red Sea on the Western side of the Arabian Peninsula. The former conduit serves oil supply to Asia, while the latter position between Yemen and Eritrea leads shipping to the Suez Canal on the way to the Mediterranean and Europe.

Both narrow sea passages are strategic chokepoints in global oil trade, with some 20-30 per cent of all daily shipped crude passing through them.

Kuwait moves to protect its ports amid Gulf tensions

Kuwait’s navy and ports authority will prepare security plans to protect the key OPEC exporter’s ports, state news agency KUNA said on Saturday, amid heightened tensions between Iran and the West.

Reuters reports that a joint cooperation protocol was signed “at an important period which the region is passing through security-wise,” Kuwait Port Authority manager Sheikh Yousef Abdullah al-Nasser al-Sabah was quoted as saying.

Sheikh Yousef said concerted efforts were needed to maintain the security of the small Gulf state’s ports and “ensure full readiness for any potential emergency,” including training and exchange of experiences, according to the KUNA report.

House passes bipartisan amendment barring Trump from striking Iran without congressional approval

The House overwhelmingly passed an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) barring President Trump from going to war with Iran without congressional approval Friday. The amendment, sponsored by Democrat Rep. Ro Khanna and Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz, would prevent federal funds from being used for any conflict in Iran without congressional authorization.

"Congress has spoken in clear terms that the American people do not want another endless war in the Middle East," Khanna told CBS News about the passage of his amendment.

However, a similar amendment to the NDAA failed in the Senate last month, as it received only 50 votes -- ten fewer than the 60 votes needed to pass.

Study: Regular Aerobic Exercise Can Slash Heart Attack Risk In Half, Even In Healthy People

By Ben Renner

Cardio exercises, such as running, cycling, or jogging for long distances can be very challenging, especially when one doesn’t get off the couch on a regular basis. It’s well known that regular cardio exercise benefits those at risk of developing heart issues, but a new study out of Norway finds that neglecting aerobic exercises can still greatly increase one’s risk of a heart attack in the future — even if an individual generally appears to be in good physical health...

DETROIT COPS ARREST THEIR OWN POLICE COMMISSIONER AT HEATED MEETING OVER FACIAL RECOGNITION (VIDEO)

SOURCE: RT

A police board meeting escalated when Detroit cops tackled a police commissioner to the ground and arrested him at a heated hearing where protesters demonstrated against the city’s controversial facial recognition scheme.
Commissioner Willie Burton was annoyed that the Board of Police Commissioners had held secret, closed door meetings that he and the public were not allowed to attend during which an expansion of the facial recognition scheme was planned, Metro Times reports.

“If you throw me out of this office that I am duly elected to, this disenfranchises 100,000 votes that I represent in the 5th District,” Burton shouted as he was surrounded by three officers. “You must throw us all out!”He attempted to call out the board on the issue at Thursday’s meeting, but was told to be quiet by board chair Lisa Carter, who objected to him speaking for longer than his allotted time, and then asked that he be removed.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to politely remind both Detroit Police and their City Council, that "1984" was a cautionary tale; not a "how-to" manual.

And the real problem with facial recognition, is how frequently these systems are dead-wrong; here are a couple of articles I really wish the City of Detroit, and its chief of police, had the opportunity to read:

Why Is Facial Recognition Important? 3 Signs It's Too Big to Ignore Any Longer;it's the Wild Wild West out there."

Use of facial recognition tech 'dangerously irresponsible'


Technology
Facial recognition will soon be everywhere. Are we prepared?

The growing backlash against facial recognition tech

OK: I get that there is a lot of crime in Detroit.

So what causes high incidents of crime?!?

In my world, there are a lot of reasons for it, starting with grinding poverty, generally caused by educational systems which don't get students prepared for the real jobs which will be left after they graduate school; and the horrific combination of drugs, drug selling and addiction. And then, in some schools, there is nearly a school to prison pipeline, for kids who, for whatever reason, are seen as "acting out."

This is further exacerbated by parents who don't (or won't) give their kids love and structure; this is the kind of thing which makes a real difference in a kid's life, and particularly during their teen years.

I know that I was enormously lucky, to have been mentored by an incredible theatre teacher, Dr. Jack Vaughn, who knew I was a composer, long before I had any idea that I could do this.

But it has to be all parts of a kid's community, educationally and socially, working together (and yes, faith communities, that also means you!) to create an environment that produces people who can work intelligently at high-tech jobs; are numerate; literate; and who understand the crucial importance of critical thinking.

Without this, there will be no end to the cycle of failed human beings who turn to crime, because they know of no other way to stay alive; and that is going to negatively impact all of us.

If you have never seen the film, "Elysium", starring Jodie Foster, you need to find it, and watch it; the writer of the film paints an ugly, and and darkly dystopian future, with the elite and monied have everything they want, but the rest of the people are sick, starving, and tortured to do the "grunt work" which keeps their Elysium alive.

US-TRAINED TROOPS SHOOT HONDURAN STUDENTS PROTESTING PRIVATIZATION

Anya Parampil reports from inside a student occupation at the National Autonomous University of Honduras (UNAH), where US-trained troops shot activists protesting the Juan Orlando Hernandez government’s attempt to privatize education and healthcare.

VIDEO BY BEN NORTON

Anya Parampil is a journalist based in Washington, DC. She previously hosted a daily progressive afternoon news program called In Question on RT America. She has produced and reported several documentaries, including on-the-ground reports from the Korean peninsula and Palestine.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Anya and Ben, my prayers are with you both this morning.

The privatization of these two areas, will result in the following outcomes: the monied will have their children educated, and taken care of, medically; those without money, will simply be consigned to rot in the streets.

And I suddenly got curious, as to just when the last detail of US troops trained some of their Honduran counterparts, and my jaw dropped at the following, from SOUTHCOM:
Honduran soldiers complete U.S. Army led Security Forces Training

And the date of this article: 11 June, 2019, just a little over a month ago..

Apparently, the bit about shooting student protestors somehow... didn't quite make its way into this article.

LONDON POLICE OFFICIAL WARNS JOURNALISTS NOT TO PUBLISH GOV. LEAKS WITH THREATS OF IMPRISONMENT

After a leak revealed that the British Ambassador to the USA had called Trump "inept, insecure and incompetent" (leading to the ambassador’s resignation and a round of Twitter insults between Trump and senior Tory officials), London’s Metropolitan Police Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu publicly warned journalists not to publish government leaks, threatening to imprison them if they do: "The publication of leaked communications, knowing the damage they have caused or are likely to cause may also be a criminal matter.

I would advise all owners, editors and publishers of social and mainstream media not to publish leaked government documents that may already be in their possession, or which may be offered to them, and to turn them over to the police or give them back to their rightful owner, Her Majesty’s Government."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Sorry, Tim Shipman; your government has never really been a representative democracy, and with the monied continuing to dictate policy, it most certainly has no appetite for becoming such an institution.

For decades, both the Brits, and their American cousins, have gone to war on dubious grounds, and essentially expropriated resources to which they had no moral right; regime changed a number of nations to make them more "amenable" to western-centric leadership, and insured that those resources taken are only sold... in US dollars.

When Karl Marx made the observation that all wars are economic in their origin, he has been proven correct almost too many times to count.

IS THERE A STEALTH FINANCIAL CRISIS? ALARM BELLS ARE RINGING.

SOURCE: RIGGED GAME

THE MARKETS ARE SHOWING DISCONCERTING PARALLELS WITH LATE 2007.

BY PAM MARTENS AND RUSS MARTENS OF WALL STREET ON PARADE

Fast forward to today: On June 3, 2019 one of Britain’s highest profile money managers, Neil Woodford, stunned global markets by announcing that his firm’s flagship fund, the $4.7 billion Woodford Equity Income Fund, would freeze customer withdrawals. The decision resulted from heavy outflows and a large stake in illiquid stocks. The U.K. securities regulator, the Financial Conduct Authority, has opened an investigation into the matter. You can read its initial assessment here.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Deutsche Bank's statement on Friday, may create havoc all throughout the financial sector; we won't know for sure whether - and how much - Deutsche Bank's "restructuring" has been priced into the markets, or if the "shock" of the magnitude of this announcement, will have investors running for the hills.

There is one thing I can say, with more than a bit of confidence; the US's Plunge Protection Team will be very busy for the next 24 hours and beyond, to try to keep the financial carnage to a minimum.

Majorities of Both US Veterans and Public Believe Wars in Iraq and Afghanistan “Not Worth Fighting”

By Jessica Corbett

The majority of American veterans and members of the general public agreed in two new surveys that the U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as the U.S. military campaign in Syria were all “not worth fighting.”

The Pew Research Center, for the pair of polls published Wednesday, asked all respondents to consider the costs versus the benefits to the United States in their analysis of whether each conflict was worthwhile.

Roughly two-thirds of both veterans and members of the public told Pew that the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq wasn’t worth it...

PHILADELPHIA IS USING A SONIC WEAPON ON KIDS -- TO KEEP THEM OUT OF PARKS

SOURCE: THE FREE THOUGHT PROJECT
(Support Free Thought) -

The Philadelphia government is reportedly using sonic weapons on it own citizens, youth and young adults, to keep them out of public parks after hours. We at TFTP were initially caught off guard with the news of compliance weapons usually reserved for riot control being used on kids. Admittedly, we believed it was fake news. Unfortunately, after further investigation, it is no laughing matter and is the first such torture device we are aware of regularly being used on young people in the U.S.

The device we learned is called “The Mosquito” and is installed in at least 30 city parks throughout Philadelphia. The Mosquito isn’t new and was covered by the NY Times in 2005 which describes the implement:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If the hearing damage is real, and documented, it would appear that the residents of Philadelphia have good grounds for a class action lawsuit against the city, and need to have an "amici curiae" brief filed by an attorney, right before the trial is to take place.

CIA INVOKING WIKILEAKS TO PUSH EXPANSION OF COLD WAR ERA SECRECY LAW

When the CIA and other agencies in the United States government pushed for the Intelligence Identities Protection Act (IIPA) in 1981, it was crafted to exclude “covert agents” who resided in the U.S.

There was consideration by the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence of how the legislation might “chill or stifle public criticism of intelligence activities or public debate concerning intelligence policy.”

More than three decades later, the CIA is apparently unsatisfied with the protections the bill granted “covert agents. It has enlisted a select group of senators and representatives to help expand the universe of individuals who are protected, making members of the press who cover intelligence matters more vulnerable to prosecution.

Democratic Representative Adam Schiff, chairman of the House intelligence committee, was involved in adding language to expand the IIPA to the Intelligence Authorization Act moving through Congress.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder why the US Intelligence community is so skittish right now, and feel the need for more "protection from prosecution" them, but not for reporters, telling the truth as best they can?

I almost sense that there is another big, fat, hairy, ugly story about to come into focus, regarding torture and war crimes, which is going to make the US government very nervous about potential revelations coming from it; this impending legislation very much reminds me of the phrase "Truth is the first casualty of war."

MICROSOFT OFFICE 365: BANNED IN GERMAN SCHOOLS OVER PRIVACY FEARS

SOURCE: ZDNET

Schools in the central German state of Hesse have been have been told it's now illegal to use Microsoft Office 365.

The state's data-protection commissioner has ruled that using the popular cloud platform's standard configuration exposes personal information about students and teachers "to possible access by US officials".

That might sound like just another instance of European concerns about data privacy or worries about the current US administration's foreign policy.

But in fact the ruling by the Hesse Office for Data Protection and Information Freedom is the result of several years of domestic debate about whether German schools and other state institutions should be using Microsoft software at all.

COURT RULES IN FAVOR OF PENTAGON IN JEDI LAWSUIT

SOURCE: NEXTGOV

The Defense Department has triumphed in the eight-month-long U.S. Court of Federal Claims lawsuit filed by Oracle over its $10 billion Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure contract.

On Friday, Senior Judge Eric Bruggink ruled in favor the Defense Department—and Amazon Web Services, which joined the lawsuit as an intervener—stating that Oracle could not meet certain gate criteria when bids were due in late 2018.

The judge’s order also denied numerous allegations made by Oracle over the course of several months, including an alleged conflict of interest between AWS and Defense Department officials.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Even in defense parlance, $10 billion dollars .... is still one heck of a lot of Benjamins; one can understand why Oracle fought so hard, to get the award of the contract reversed.

SEXUAL PREDATORS WITHIN AMERICA’S POWER ELITE: WHAT YOU'RE NOT BEING TOLD

SOURCE: THEMINDUNLEASHED.COM
“As political and economic freedom diminishes, sexual freedom tends compensating to increase. And the dictator (unless he needs cannon fodder and families with which to colonize empty or conquered territories) will do well to encourage that freedom.” — Aldous Huxley, Brave New World

(RI) — Power corrupts. Anyone who believes differently hasn’t been paying attention.

Politics, religion, sports, government, entertainment, business, armed forces: it doesn’t matter what arena you’re talking about, they are all riddled with the kind of seedy, sleazy, decadent, dodgy, depraved, immoral, corrupt behavior that somehow gets a free pass when it involves the wealthy and powerful elite in America.

In this age of partisan politics and a deeply polarized populace, corruption — especially when it involves sexual debauchery, depravity and predatory behavior — has become the great equalizer.

Big Lie that ‘mass shootings’ like Sandy Hook require public gun confiscation must be flipped: arrest .01% US rogue state leaders to confiscate THEIR guns for shooting millions in lie-started illegal Wars of Aggression, assassinating JFK, RFK, MLK, etc.,

Americans are propagandized with a "Big Lie" that law-abiding citizens must be disarmed because our .01% government engages in mass war and poverty-murders in the annual millions! Please ask and answer for yourself: do our "leaders" care about innocent people and therefore take extraordinary care for public safety, OR are they frightened about public awakening to their rogue state empire and want Americans disarmed to more safely dominate? You are aware that public gun confiscation was our previous government's last move before our ancestors' last American Revolution, so if you honor the breakthrough in freedom We the People stand for, you'd better "arm yourself" with talking points to flip this debate: disarm .01% lying, looting, rogue state criminals, then arrest them.

New Zealand housing market at risk of crash, Bloomberg research shows

New Zealand and Canada are the most vulnerable economies to a correction in house prices, with Australia and the UK also drawing concern, according to new research from Bloomberg Economics.

Seeking to build a "housing bubble dashboard," economist Niraj Shah studied ratios of house prices to rent and income as well as inflation-adjusted prices and household credit.

The results showed that Canada and New Zealand seem to be on the most unsustainable path, with the cost of housing compared with wages the highest in the world in both countries. Australia, Norway, Sweden and the UK also raise alarm bells, Shah said.

New Zealand has the highest house price to rent ratio in the world, and the highest house price compared to income, according to Shah.

New election systems use vulnerable software

Pennsylvania’s message was clear: The state was taking a big step to keep its elections from being hacked in 2020. Last April, its top election official told counties they had to update their systems. So far, nearly 60% have taken action, with $14.15 million of mostly federal funds helping counties buy brand-new electoral systems.

But there’s a problem: Many of these new systems still run on old software that will soon be outdated and more vulnerable to hackers.

An Associated Press analysis has found that like many counties in Pennsylvania, the vast majority of 10,000 election jurisdictions nationwide use Windows 7 or an older operating system to create ballots, program voting machines, tally votes and report counts.

Hurricane Barry weakens to a tropical storm as it makes landfall near New Orleans with two FEET of rain predicted over two DAYS causing 'life threatening floods' that will test post-Katrina defenses

Hurricane Barry barreled its way through Louisiana but quickly weakened to a tropical storm on Saturday, bringing torrential downpours and powerful winds which caused widespread flooding and flight cancellations.

Barry first made its presence felt in Morgan City, west of New Orleans, but was soon downgraded to a tropical storm with winds decreasing from 70 mph, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Hours earlier, the storm had strengthened into a Category 1 hurricane, with maximum sustained winds of 75 mph, as all flights in and out of Louis Armstrong International Airport had to be cancelled.

Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards said none of the main levees on the Mississippi River in the state had failed or been breached so far, as flooding and catastrophic scenes reminiscent of 2005's Hurricane Katrina were envisaged.

But he warned at a news conference on Saturday that the storm is just beginning and the state faces significant threats in the days ahead.

The will of an enemy that apologises will break

We have grown accustomed to the enemy’s threats to retaliate and its assertion of the concept of deterrence. We have monitored Israel’s behaviour for decades and found that it relies on its air force — its long arm — and its special forces, which work behind the lines constantly to prevent the establishment of various power bases that might pose a threat to its security and existence.

By means of its weapons, the determination of its people and their faith and willingness to make sacrifices, this enemy recoils, hesitates and apologises. The statement made by the Israeli army spokesperson this week about the “misunderstanding” which led to a Hamas operative being shot dead in Gaza was, to all intents and purposes, an apology to the resistance made out of fear of its response. It is the nearest the Israelis will come to making an outright apology. However, the Zionist spokesperson has not changed, though, and will not do so; it is the Palestinians who have changed.

Cutting ties with Israel might be impossible due to international complicity 

UN Special Rapporteur Michael Lynk has suggested that the international community should consider cutting ties with Israel if it goes ahead with further colonial settlement expansion and annexation, according to a report by Al Jazeera. Non-binding requests or suggestions from the UN, however, are unlikely to go beyond rhetoric, given the international community’s political investment in Israel and complicity in the colonial occupation itself.

Had Israel been a country marked for foreign intervention, the international community would have no qualms about implementing Lynk’s suggestions. However, the persistent, non-binding nature of UN recommendations will only serve to create further ambiguous discourse when it comes to Israel and human rights violations.

Under pressure from Zionists, church cancels Palestinian youth event

Under pressure from Israel lobby groups, a Canadian church canceled an event celebrating a scholarship award in honor of the iconic Palestinian writer Ghassan Kanafani.

The event, organized by the US-based Palestinian Youth Movement, was scheduled to be held at Trinity St. Paul’s United Church in Toronto on 13 July.

Kanafani, a communist, intellectual and novelist, was a spokesperson for the Marxist-Leninist PFLP party. He was murdered by an Israeli Mossad car bomb in Lebanon in July 1972.

Along with the extremist Jewish Defense League, which has a long history of violent threats, racism and harassment against Palestinian activists in Canada, Israel advocacy group B’nai Brith Canada bragged about its role in the cancellation and smeared Kanafani as a “terrorist.”

B’nai Brith said it would “continue to investigate” PYM’s scholarship program and threatened that it will “take all possible steps to thwart it.”

Cory Booker’s Foreign Policy Echoes His Biggest Donors

In last Wednesday’s Democratic debate, Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) stood apart from the other candidates on the stage by declining to commit to return to the Iran nuclear deal. Videos viewed by LobeLog show that Booker’s unusual position is shared by NORPAC, a pro-Israel PAC aligned with the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). As Booker’s biggest donor, NORPAC contributed $185,871 to Booker’s campaign committee in 2018, a cycle in which Booker wasn’t even up for election.

During the first Democratic debate, the candidates were asked whether they would commit to returning to the nuclear deal. Every candidate on the stage except Booker raised their hand.
