TROJAN HORSE: The Trans Pacific Partnership Has Already Bought Off Washington

Although the House of Representatives voted down legislation to ‘fast-track’ trade deals through Congress – it appears the TPP may have already secured its future with millions in donations made to US Senators since the start of the year…
‘Trojan Horse’ – US leaders put on a show for cloaked trade deal.
The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade deal negotiations hit the mainstream over the past month with a US Senate approval of the controversial trade bill in late May.
As Washington leaders continue their show trial-like debate over the TPP, with the House voting against fast-tracking trade authority, the Washington Post disclosed that there’s already a ‘planned do-over vote,’ slated for next week.
The TPP trade deal is something we’ve covered extensively at 21WIRE over the past two years, as international trade law for new trade treaty TPP appears to be a way for private corporations to exempt themselves from the laws of sovereign nations under the guise of a so-called free-trade agreement.

Multiple Assailants Attack Dallas Police Headquarters With Automatic Guns, Pipe Bombs

Over the past several years, the US government has been confounded with not only explaining, but properly responding to one of the clear and obvious consequences of the Fed’s disastrous policy of the past 7 years, namely record wealth inequality and a tearing social fabric (recall Paul Tudor Jones prediction that it may all once again end in “war or revolution“) leading to rising social instability and a surge in public outbreaks of violence, frequently lethal. One need only note the flash riots in Baltimore and Ferguson to comprehend how fragile the US social fabric has become.
But while the government is still clueless how to explain this surge in social violence, something Zero Hedge readers have known for a long time is imminent (recall “despite what should be a steadily improving economy and improving social and economic conditions, what readers founds most fascinating, and troubling, was the increasing preponderance of social disobedience, of covert, proxy or outright wars, and of civil unrest: all phenomena that accompany a world sliding deeper into distress, not as most central banks and their puppet media would have us believe, a global recovery.”), where its response has been even more deplorable is how to respond to this increase in civil disobedience: by weaponizing the US police force to an extent reminiscent of pre-civil war state leading to a police force which feels enabled and duly required to intervene well beyond the required in quelling and pre-empting imminent violence, leading to even more bloodshed much of it caught on phonecam and promptly uploaded on YouTube.

Intelligence Report: ISIS have seized ‘enough radioactive material to build their first WMD’

21st Century Wire says…
Where have we heard this one before?
Watch a video of this report here:

Are you concerned these guys may have WMDs? (Photo)
The obvious problem here is that we have heard this story all too often. Most remarkably in the run up to the Iraq war, with the ridiculous claim that Saddam could hit London in 45 minutes withhis non-existant WMDs.
Is it possible that ISIS could have acquired ‘dirty’ materials from hospitals and research facilities? Absolutely.

It’s time to declare a truce in the chemical war on weeds

Nancy Swanson
Seattle GMO Examiner
As the war on weeds gears up for summer, the London-based Institute for Science in Society publishes a Manifesto on Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup. The Manifesto was published today, June 8, and already 155 scientists and medical professionals have signed, calling on all governments to ban glyphosate-based herbicides. The Manifesto states in part:
‘We, the undersigned international scientists and medical professionals, call on governments at all levels to ban the spraying of glyphosate herbicides. As professionals who have read the literature on glyphosate herbicides and their effects, we have concluded that they are causing irreparable harm.
The World Health Organization’s recent reclassification of glyphosate as a ‘probable human carcinogen’ is only a small part of the known toxicity of glyphosate herbicides. Chronic exposure to glyphosate herbicides is associated not only with cancers, but also with infertility, impotence, abortions, birth defects, neurotoxicity, hormonal disruption, immune reactions, an unnamed fatal kidney disease, chronic diarrhoea, autism and other ailments.’
Signature collection is ongoing. If you are a scientist or medical professional, you may sign the Manifesto here. Non-scientists can sign a separate list in support of the Manifesto. If your local government is spraying toxic herbicides in a war on weeds, you can print out the Manifesto and present it to your officials.

Clash Of The Titans: Merkel, Schaeuble Spar Over Greece As German FinMin Draws Up Grexit Plans

“Yanis, have this nourishment for the nerves. You’re going to need it,’ German FinMin Wolfgang Schaeuble told his Greek counterpart last week, presenting Varoufakis with a box of chocolate euros at a meeting in Berlin.
That’s what counts as humor for Schaeuble who, as Speigel puts it, has become the embodiment of the despicable German to the Greek populace over the course of fraught negotiations with Athens and who now faces a rift with Chancellor Angela Merkel over how far Germany should be willing to go to keep the Greeks in the single currency.
Although Merkel enjoys widespread popularity, Schaeuble is a veteran of the German government and lawmakers’ reverence for the FinMin is increasingly manifesting itself in the growing parliamentary opposition to what some view as an unacceptably soft stance towards Athens on the part of the Chancellor. Speigel has more on Merkel, Schaeuble, and politics in Berlin.

No One is Safe in a Post-Antibiotic World

Antibiotics are one of modern day’s greatest discoveries, but it’s failing us. By our own hand, we have abused this medical achievement by using it as a ‘fix-all’, and it has caused antibiotic resistance issues that spans across the globe. In fact, antibiotic resistance is one of the biggest health threats of the 21st century. Superbugs, Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus (VRE) and multidrug-resistant Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MDR-TB) are increasing throughout the world and have the capacity to cause worldwide health issues. Moreover, no one wants to even walk into a hospital for fear of carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae, or CRE, that have been reported at hospitals around the country.
According to the CDC, each year in the United States, at least 2 million people become infected with bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics and at least 23,000 people die each year as a direct result of these infections. Last year, Keiji Fukuda, Director-General for Health Health Security at WHO warned, ‘Without urgent, coordinated action by many stakeholders, the world is headed for a post-antibiotic era, in which common infections and minor injuries which have been treatable for decades can once again kill.’
In a recent article on the subject, Fukuda once again stressed to the world:

The American Deep State

Veteran investigative journalist Jefferson Morley observes concerning the American Deep State:
‘America is ruled by a parallel system of power that operates above and in some ways below our system of democratic governance,’ says David Talbot in this engaging conversation with University of California-Berkeley professor/poet/diplomat Peter Dale Scott.
Scott’s provocative conception of a ‘deep politics’ and a ‘deep state’ within the American democratic system, first articulated in the 1990s, has gained credibility over the years. After the revelations of Wikileaks and Edward Snowden, everyone who wants to can see that U. S. national security agencies have the latitude to pursue their chosen policies regardless of the decisions of the visible Madisonian government. The recent vote on ending NSA’s already implemented bulk collection procedures is the exception that prove the world.

The Death of France’s Forgotten Armies

METZ, FRANCE – The dramatic seaborne rescue of 328,000 Allied troops from Dunkirk in June, 1940 is well known. But the tragic effort of almost 300,000 French troops to break out of encirclement in eastern France along the Maginot Line is almost totally unknown.
On 10 May, 1940, Germany unleashed a new form of mobile warfare known as ‘blitzkrieg’ against the combined armies of France, Britain, Holland and Belgium.
At the time, France had Europe’s most powerful, battle-hardened army with more tanks, artillery and warplanes than Germany possessed. France and her British allies were prepared to re-fight the same static battles of World War I that had ended only 22 years earlier. By contrast, the rebuilt German armed forces were determined to fight a fluid war of movement to avoid the terrible slaughter of World War I.
Chancellor Adolf Hitler rejected the more conventional campaign plans proposed by his generals, choosing instead a daring, radical plan, ‘Fall Gelb,’ drawn up by the brilliant Gen. Eric von Manstein.
This audacious proposal called for the bulk of Germany’s armor, mechanized and logistical units to negotiate the dirt tracks, ravines and dense woods of the vast Ardennes Forest that straddles the Franco-Belgian border and Luxembourg. The Germans would then fall upon the hinge of two massive French armies (north on the Belgian border and south behind the Maginot Line facing Belgium and Germany), then drive northwest for the Channel, so isolating the Allied armies corps in northern France.

At the G7, We Journalists were Pampered – At Bilderberg We’re Harassed by Police

The clock has struck midnight. The dream is over. Back at the G7 summit, barely a day and 20 miles from here, I was treated like a prince. I was one of the chosen 3,000 journalists who were primped, pampered, fed and burped, given free T-shirts, gallons of goulash, buckets of booze, and all the cheesy footage of world leaders we could swallow. We lay back on our branded beanbags and were tickled silly by the gentle fist of the G7PR machine. But not any more. The beanbag has burst.
‘Step out of the vehicle and show me your identification!’ A group of Austrian police officers took up position round my car. I pulled on the handbrake and opened the door. I swear to God one young officer shifted his hand to the butt of his sidearm, like I was about to rush them. All 12 of them. All armed. Maybe if there had only been 10 I might have taken them down using a slingshot improvised from my shoelaces, but not 12. I might be crazy but I’m not nuts.
Bear in mind, this checkpoint is all part of the same security operation, using the same police, that covered the G7. That much was admitted months ago by the Austrian authorities.

Cyber Cop Claims Downloading Music Illegally is a ‘Gateway’ Crime for Kids

It’s time to burst into your child’s room and set their computer on fire, parents. According to Andy Archibald, deputy director of the National Cyber Crime Unit at the NCA (National Crime Agency), the overwhelmingly common enterprise of file sharing is going to lead your child down a path of malware design and cyber attacks.
During last week’s Infosecurity Europe conference in London, Archibald claimed that unauthorized file sharing such as torrenting movies, music, and games, is a ‘gateway’ crime to more serious cyber crimes and deeper involvement in the dark web. More specifically, he stated:
‘If you think about the illegal downloading of music, of videos and DVD’s, I think that practice is more common than we might imagine within the youth of today. That’s criminality. It’s almost become acceptable. That’s the first stages, I believe, of a gateway into the dark side.’
Archibald believes the gateway drug theory to be an appropriate analogy. The gateway theory, of course, is the idea that youths that experiment with substances like marijuana eventually move along to experimentation with harder drugs because of exposure to drug dealers. Even in such a case, the fact that marijuana is in the hands of street drug dealers is a product of the failed U. S. Drug War. But that’s a different story altogether.

Happy Birthday Magna Carta – Paul Craig Roberts

Monday, June 15, 2015, is the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta. In his book, Magna Carta, J. C. Holt, professor of medieval history, University of Cambridge, notes that three of the chapters of this ancient document still stand on the English Stature Book and that so much of what survives of the Great Charter is ‘concerned with individual liberty,’ which ‘is a reflexion of the quality of the original act of 1215.’
In the 17th century Sir Edward Coke used the Great Charter of the Liberties to establish the supremacy of Parliament, the representative of the people, as the origin of law.
A number of legal scholars have made the irrelevant point that the Magna Carter protected rights of the Church, nobles, and free men who were not enserfed, a small percentage of the population in the early 13th century. We hear the same about the US Constitution – it was something the rich did for themselves. I have no sympathy for debunking human achievements that, in the end, gave ordinary people liberty.
At Runnymede in 1215 no one but the armed barons had the power and audacity to make King John submit to law. The rule of law, not the rule of the sovereign or of the executive branch in Washington acceded to by a cowardly and corrupt Congress and Supreme Court, is a human achievement that grew out of the Magna Carta over the centuries, with ups and downs of course.
Blackstone’s Commentaries in 1759 fed into the American Revolution and gave us the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

Murder Rates Soar In Baltimore As Dejected Police Look The Other Way

Over the past several months, two competing theories have emerged regarding what effect a year of deteriorating race relations has had on law enforcement’s approach to policing America’s cities.
One theory, dubbed the ‘Ferguson effect’, suggests that police are now less engaged because they fear public scrutiny, prosecution, and, in the worst case scenario, being blamed for inciting the type of social upheaval that led to the riots which left parts of Baltimore in ashes less than two months ago.
A second theory says that if anything, police have become more aggressive, especially as it relates to the use of lethal force. A Washington Post investigation found that police are killing suspects at twice the previous rate in 2015 and The Guardian has nowembarked on an ambitious, crowdsourced effort to put a face and a name to every person killed by police in America over the course of this year.
Assessing which theory is correct is difficult, although we would be remiss if we didn’t mention that the so-called ‘Ferguson effect’ relies on anecdotal evidence while the idea that police are killing more people than ever before is simply a matter of statistics. Having said that, The New York Times is out with a new piece which appears to support the notion that, at least in Baltimore, police are scaling back patrols and avoiding high crime areas.

US Government Admits 2nd “Chinese” Cyberhack Exposed Military Intel

In what Rep Mike Rogers called “the mother of all spear-phishing attacks,” AP reports a second cyberattack linked to China appears to have gained access to the sensitive background information submitted by intelligence and military personnel for security clearances, according to several U. S. officials. Coming on the same day as the US Senate failed to pass a cyber-security shield bill and China’s urhging US to reduce military activities in The South China Sea, ‘anonymous’ official sources noted this second cyberbreach of federal records could dramatically compound the potential damage.
First China this morning warned US to reduce military activities in South China Sea…

If your travel history is ‘suspicious’, is that cause for search?

If the file about you the DHS has compiled from airline reservations, license-plate readers, and other travel surveillance data sources is deemed ‘suspicious’, does that constitute probable cause for a search of your home and business or seizure of your possessions?
That question has arisen in the case of Albuquerque antique gun collector and dealer Bob Adams, argued in May 2015 and currently awaiting a decision by the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver.
On January 23, 2013, Mr. Adams’ home and business was raided by a SWAT team including DHS and other Federal and state agencies. Various of his possessions, including his collection and inventory of firearms, were seized, damaged, and/or destroyed in the raid. On November 4, 2013, after Mr. Adams had filed suit to recovery his property, he wasindicted for various technical violations of Federal lawsrelating to firearms imports and dealer licensing and reporting.
Both the search warrant and the indictment were based, in part, on allegations by Federal law enforcement officers regarding the records of Mr. Adams’ international travel history in the DHS Automated Targeting System (ATS). In an affidavit supporting the application to a Federal magistrate for the search of Mr. Adams’ home and business, ‘Special Agent’ Frank Ortiz of the New Mexico Attorney General’s Office claimed that ATS records showed that Mr. Adams had repeatedly flown to Canada without having return flight reservations to the US, and had subsequently re-entered the US as a passenger in a private car. This, agent Ortiz opined (based on his purported ‘expertise’ in interpreting such data) was evidence of a pattern of suspicious behaviour characteristic of Mr. Adams’ alleged modus operandi for unlawful firearms imports.

Fact Or Fiction: Obama Not Ruling Out U.S. Military Action In Congress

Following years of continued fighting and disorder in the troubled region, President Barack Obama revealed today that he has not ruled out taking immediate and decisive military action in the United States Congress.
Admitting that diplomatic outreach efforts in the area have so far proven unsuccessful, the president claimed that his administration is weighing the feasibility of committing combat troops to both the U. S. Senate and the House of Representatives in order to bring lasting peace and stability to the chaos-afflicted legislature.
‘We have not yet made a decision as to how we are going to address this rapidly deteriorating situation, but at this point I can tell you that military action is indeed on the table,’ Obama told reporters at a morning press conference, emphasizing that he is ‘deeply troubled’ by the escalating hostilities and diminishing prospects for unity on the Congressional floor. ‘Clearly, sending our young men and women into this tumultuous war zone is not ideal, and I still hope to resolve the situation through peaceful means. But as the conflict continues to worsen, it becomes increasingly evident that the deployment of our armed forces may be our only real option.’
“We cannot stand idly by and allow this senseless mayhem to continue,’ the president continued.

Pentagon Chief Declares Excluding LGBT Troops Is a Threat to National Security

Editor’s Note: Why would anyone, regardless of orientation, even want to join the military at this point anyway? Or, better yet, what exactly is the definition of ‘national security’ these days? How is it even possible that excluding LGBT troops threatens national security while illegals pouring over the U. S.-Mexico border is no big deal and the nation is somehow still magically secure? Does anyone here see the veracity in what the Pentagon Chief claims?
Via U. S. News:
It was standing room only in the Pentagon’s main auditorium midday Tuesday, with staff spilling out into the corridor for a celebration of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender members of the Department of Defense at a time of almost unprecedented change to the military’s social demographics.
