Two people enroll in food stamps for every one job created in Illinois

The U. S. economy was a disaster when Barack Obama ascended to the White House in January 2009, a phenomenon that he and fellow Democrats repeatedly blamed on his predecessor, George W. Bush. The mainstream media willfully and relentless echoed that blame, a campaign that was so effective that, even today, millions of Americans are still blaming a poorly performing economy on a man who hasn’t been in office for nearly six years (though the “Blame Bush” strategy is finally petering out).
And while Obama is still not getting the same kind of blame, or taking any responsibility for a still struggling economy, Americans all over the country are continuing to struggle to find work — meaningful work at livable wages — and nowhere is that more evident than in the president’s home state of Illinois.
As reported by Breitbart News:
Among the many metrics that show Obama’s home state is struggling to break the Great Recession, a new report shows that applications for food stamps in Illinois is greater than its creation of jobs.

Hong Kong Boiling – But Gently So Far

Hong Kong is at a gentle boil. As of this writing, tens of thousands of students have been politely demonstrating, calling for the Beijing-appointed chief executive, C. Y. Leung, to resign and be replaced through free elections.
Politics don’t often divert Hong Kong’s manic obsession with business and finance, but the upsurge of youthful discontent has presented China with one of its biggest popular challenges since the 1989 Tiananmen uprising – which China insists never happened.
So far, China’s Communist Party and its tough new boss, Xi Jinping, have stood back and taken no serious action to curb the peaceful demonstrations. Now, however, protest leaders are threatening to seize government buildings unless Beijing drops plans to select Hong Kong’s new government in 2017. This is a direct challenge to Beijing’s national authority.
Considering that Beijing is ruthlessly crushing protests by Uighur Muslims in its strategic westernmost province of Xinjiang, Hong Kong’s demands for true autonomy and self-rule come at a particularly difficult time for the Communist Party which is feting its 65th anniversary of taking over China.
Western media, often hostile to China, is portraying the uprising as a struggle by democrats against party dictatorship. Reality is rather more complex. Hong Kong never had democracy under British Imperial rule: it was run by an autocratic British colonial governor – and run pretty well.
When China assumed control in 1997 of long-lost Hong Kong, it vowed to maintain its special self-governing status for 50 years, except for defense and foreign affairs. China appointed the former colony’s chief executive, but locals were given some latitude.
This ‘one state, two systems’ worked well. But a new generation wants democracy and real political power. Beijing is unlikely to ever accept such a development. Hong Kong is isolated from the rest of China and self-contained, but Beijing fears the internet and social media will spread the virus of democracy – even chaos – to the rest of China.

What Civilian Casualties? To Barack Obama, Women And Children In Syria And Iraq Are A Subhuman Species

While one can’t help but snicker when the administration of a Nobel Peace Prize winner has launched at least 7 offensive wars, mosty against Muslim countries with virtually none obtaining prior approval from Congress, until now Obama at least showed the sense to realize that maintaining proper “made for propaganda media” optics matters, even if his underlying actions were the very definition of hypocrisy. And then something snapped. As reported by Yahoo News, the White House has acknowledged for the first time that strict standards President Obama imposed last year to prevent civilian deaths from U. S. drone strikeswill not apply to U. S. military operations in Syria and Iraq.
Now, we showed last weekend that Syrian “rebels”, those people the US is supposedly helping, are furious at US bombing of their own people, but we wonder just how they will feel when they realize that according to the most powerful representative of the “free world” they are actually, well, subhuman and not worthy of the same civil rights as people in every other part of the globe (bombed by US drones).
According to Yahoo News, a White House statement confirmed the looser policy came in response to questions about reports that as many as a dozen civilians, including women and young children, were killed when a Tomahawk missile struck the village of Kafr Daryan in Syria’s Idlib province on the morning of Sept. 23.
it has a “looser policy standards” when it comes to preventing civilian deaths from U. S. drone strikes in U. S. military operations in Syria and Iraq.

The Fake Terror Threat Used To Justify Bombing Syria

As the Obama Administration prepared to bomb Syria without congressional or U. N. authorization, it faced two problems. The first was the difficulty of sustaining public support for a new years-long war against ISIS, a group that clearly posed no imminent threat to the ‘homeland.’ A second was the lack of legal justification for launching a new bombing campaign with no viable claim of self-defense or U. N. approval.
The solution to both problems was found in the wholesale concoction of a brand new terror threat that was branded ‘The Khorasan Group.’ After spending weeks depicting ISIS as an unprecedented threat – too radical even for Al Qaeda! – administration officials suddenly began spoon-feeding their favorite media organizations and national security journalists tales of a secret group that was even scarier and more threatening than ISIS, one that posed a direct and immediate threat to the American Homeland. Seemingly out of nowhere, a new terror group was created in media lore.
The unveiling of this new group was performed in a September 13 article by the Associated Press, who cited unnamed U. S. officials to warn of this new shadowy, worse-than-ISIS terror group:
While the Islamic State group [ISIS] is getting the most attention now, another band of extremists in Syria – a mix of hardened jihadis from Afghanistan, Yemen, Syria and Europe – poses a more direct and imminent threat to the United States, working with Yemeni bomb-makers to target U. S. aviation, American officials say.
At the center is a cell known as the Khorasan group, a cadre of veteran al-Qaida fighters from Afghanistan and Pakistan who traveled to Syria to link up with the al-Qaida affiliate there, the Nusra Front.
But the Khorasan militants did not go to Syria principally to fight the government of President Bashar Assad, U. S. officials say. Instead, they were sent by al-Qaida leader Ayman al-Zawahiri to recruit Europeans and Americans whose passports allow them to board a U. S.-bound airliner with less scrutiny from security officials.
AP warned Americans that ‘the fear is that the Khorasan militants will provide these sophisticated explosives to their Western recruits who could sneak them onto U. S.-bound flights.’ It explained that although ISIS has received most of the attention, the Khorasan Group ‘is considered the more immediate threat.’
The genesis of the name was itself scary: ‘Khorasan refers to a province under the Islamic caliphate, or religious empire, of old that included parts of Afghanistan.’ AP depicted the U. S. officials who were feeding them the narrative as engaging in some sort of act of brave, unauthorized truth-telling: ‘Many U. S. officials interviewed for this story would not be quoted by name talking about what they said was highly classified intelligence.’
On the morning of September 18, CBS News broadcast a segment that is as pure war propaganda as it gets: directly linking the soon-to-arrive U. S. bombing campaign in Syria to the need to protect Americans from being exploded in civilian jets by Khorasan. With ominous voice tones, the host narrated:

Don’t Worry? 10 Quotes From Health Experts Promising That Ebola Will Not Be A Problem In America

Health experts all over the United States are promising us that we do not need to be worried about Ebola whatsoever. Even though one case has already been confirmed in Dallas, Texas and another potential case is being monitored, health authorities assure us that we have the greatest health system in the history of the planet and that we will be able to handle any isolated cases very easily. And all over the mainstream media on Wednesday, there were headlines declaring that the arrival of Ebola in America is a non-event. One example is this headline fromBloomberg: ‘Ebola in America? Don’t Worry About It’. So are they right? Should the rest of us just kick back and relax because a bunch of really smart guys are assuring us that our health system can easily deal with anything that Ebola can throw at us? The following are 10 quotes from prominent experts promising us that Ebola will not be a problem in this country…
#1 Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases: ‘We feel confident that there won’t be an outbreak.’
#2 University of Chicago professor Michael Z. David: ‘While this all sounds very frightening, there’s no need to worry at this point about Ebola spreading widely here.’
#3 Gerardo Chowell-Puente, an associate professor of mathematical epidemiology at the School of Human Evolution and Social Change at Arizona State University: ‘Math and history show us that decisive efforts to isolate those who are infected with Ebola and to follow up quickly with the potential contacts of the infected can help to get an outbreak under control. We’re lucky that we have such capacities in the United States; even with the Ebola case in Dallas, the epidemic should not get much of a foothold here.’
#4 Texas Health Director David Lakey: ‘This is a very sophisticated city, a very sophisticated hospital, … and the chances of it being spread are very, very scarce.’
#5 Zachary Thompson, director of Dallas County Health & Human Services: ‘This is not Africa. We have a great infrastructure to deal with an outbreak.’

The GMO Labeling Conundrum

It would seem that large agricultural corporations touting genetically modified organisms (GMOs) they claim possess enhanced benefits for farmers and consumers would be proud to differentiate their products on the shelves from organic and traditionally produced food. However that is not the case. Not only is big-ag attempting to hide the true nature of their products, but the many big-business food processors that incorporate GMO ingredients into their final products are likewise attempting to mislead consumers.
The obvious fear is that consumers will avoid GMO products in favor of those not labeled as modified. While other arguments have been made in attempts to justify not properly labeling food as genetically modified or not, the underlying theme appears to be the belief of big-ag that consumers’ ignorance over the alleged safety of GMO products threatens their business and with it, innovations they claim are a benefit not only to their bottom lines, but to all of humanity.
Of course, beneath the layers of this ‘belief,’ is the reality that their products do not offer any overwhelming benefit to humanity, and in fact, in many ways, have become a scourge to humanity. Additionally, peripheral arguments, such as GMO being in no way different to organic products, thus there is no need to label them, are so divergent from logic and commonsense that a general suspicion and distrust has formed in the collective mind of the public in regards to big-ag and those pushing their products.
To counter the growing ire of the general public, big-ag has raised an army of professional propagandists peddling pro-GMO talking points in the form of books, websites, mainstream media reportage and even while posing as ordinary citizens simply expressing their ‘opinions’ in comment sections and upon what are supposed to appear as independent personal blogs. They, to no one’s surprise, repeat verbatim the talking points proposed by big-ag itself, and while anti-GMO activists eagerly wade into the fray with this army of propagandists, the only relevant question that should be asked seems to escape them all.
If GMO is Better, Why Not Label it So You Can Find and Consume it Easier?

‘Reporter’ Who Broke Propaganda Piece ‘Justifying’ Bombing Syria Clears His Stories with CIA Before Publishing

A Stooge for the CIA? We recently pointed out that the immediate ‘justification’ for the U. S. bombing of Syria – the ‘Khorasans’ – is as fake as the Kardashians’ physique.
Glenn Greenwald, Murtaza Hussain and Justin Raimondo have written must-read stories proving that we were right.
And Democracy Now – interviewing Hussain – notes that the same ‘reporter’ who broke the ‘story’ of the Khorasan ‘threat’ was recently busted for clearing his stories in advance with the CIA:
MURTAZA HUSSAIN: … It was interesting that Ken Dilanian reported the story first in the Associated Press, saying that this was a new threat and a new group, and he was one of the first people to break the story afterwards saying that U. S. officials are now adding more ‘nuance,’ is the word he used, to their previous warnings about the group. So, it was kind of a really egregious case of media spin, whereby the media had taken up this narrative of a threat from a new terrorist, and then, after the strikes had been conducted which justified this group, they immediately took the opposite tack, saying that in fact there was no threat that was imminent and the group itself did not exist per se. So, it was really quite a failure of the media, which we’ve seen several times in the past, as well.

A Man With A Gun Stopped The Oklahoma Beheader From Murdering Another Woman

Anti-gun liberals of the world please take note – it was a man with a gun that stopped the Oklahoma beheader from beheading another woman. If a man with a gun had not been there and had not shot 30-year-old Alton Alexander Nolen, he would have finished his attack on his second female victim. And after that, Nolen would have probably kept beheading people for as long as he could before the authorities arrived. Of course this detail has been greatly played down by the reports in the mainstream media. They never want to say anything good about men with guns. But I’ll bet 43-year-old Traci Johnson sure is thankful that there was a man with a gun there to prevent her from losing her head.
The hero in this situation was an Oklahoma County reserve deputy named Mark Vaughan. But because he was a man with a gun, he is getting very little attention from the big news networks. The following is from a local news report that described what happened when Nolen went after his second victim…
At that point, Lewis claims Nolen met 43-year-old Traci Johnson and began attacking her with the same knife.
Officials say at that point, Mark Vaughan, an Oklahoma County reserve deputy and a former CEO of the business, shot him as he was actively stabbing Johnson.
‘He’s, obviously, a hero in this situation,’ Sgt. Lewis said, referring to Vaughan. ‘It could have gotten a lot worse.’

“The Information War For Ukraine”

When one of the most watched German channels – south German state TV channel ZDF – releases an 8 minute satirical spoof of all the fabricated “news” surrounding the Ukraine “nvasion” by Russia and all the associated newsflow from the region (in which “any similarity to the current news is unintended and accidental, but absolutely inevitable“), you know that the time has come to double down on the propaganda effort because if ground zero of media indoctrination, Germany, is starting to see through the fog of endless media BS, then how long until the rest of the world follows?

Ready Or Not… The Unsustainable Status Quo Is Ending

~ Walking straight in a hall of mirrors
I have to confess, it’s getting more and more difficult to find ways of writing about everything going on in the world.
Not because there’s a shortage of things to write about — wars, propaganda, fraud, Ebola — but because most of the negative news and major world events we see around us are symptoms of the disease, not the disease itself.
There are only so many times you can describe the disease, before it all becomes repetitive for both the writer and the reader. It’s far more interesting to get to the root cause, because then real solutions offering real progress can be explored.
Equally troubling, in a world where the central banks have distorted, if not utterly flattened, the all important relationship between prices, risk, and reality, what good does it do to seek some sort of meaning in the new temporary arrangement of things?
When the price of money itself is distorted, then all prices are merely derivative works of that primary distortion. Some prices will be too high, some far too low, but none accurately determined by the intersection of true demand and supply.
If risk has been taken from where it belongs and instead shuffled onto central bank balance sheets, or allowed to be hidden by new and accommodating accounting tricks, has it really disappeared? In my world, risk is like energy: it can neither be created nor destroyed, only transformed or transferred.
If reality no longer has a place at the table — such as when policy makers act as if the all-too-temporary shale oil bonanza is now a new permanent constant — then the discussions happening around that table are only accidentally useful, if ever, and always delusional.
Through all of this, the big picture as described in the Crash Course grows ever more obviously clear: we are on an unsustainable course; economically, ecologically, and — most immediately worryingly — in our use of energy.
So let’s start there, with a simple grounding in the facts.

How The “Syrian Rebels” Really Feel About “Friendly” US Airstrikes

Late yesterday, General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the U. S. military’s Joint Chiefs of Staff, disclosed what in a nutshell US strategy in Syria would be.
For one, he announced that the US would require some 12,000-15,000 armed, trained and paid for boots on the ground, i.e., mercenaries to do Obama’s dirty work on the ground because the Nobel peace prize winner is unwilling to go all the way with his belligerent pivot. As a reminder, the last notable time the US engaged in wholesale arming and funding of offshore mercenaries was the Afghan war, when the CIA got involved with the Mujahideen “freedom fighters” whose funding began with $20 – $30 million per year in 1980 and rose to $630 million per year in 1987, culminating with the terrorist action of Osama Bin Laden, once a close friend of the US and the CIA (read more about Operation Cyclone here).
More importantly, as Reuters reported, Dempsey said that the endgoal is “to recapture lost territory in eastern Syria”. Territory, which as we reported in July, amounts to 35% of Syria’s landmass and includes most of its oilfields. And sure enough, the territory would be preserved for the exclusive use of the “rebels”, or the group of Islamists from whose ranks none other than ISIS arose over the past year. And since the rebels couldn’t care one way or another, this is merely a way for the US to say that whatever Syrian territory is “liberated” from ISIS presence, it will be disposed of as the US sees fit, with the only decisions being whether to grant it to Qatar or Saudi Arabia.
In the meantime, things on the propaganda front are going form bad to worse. Recall the Nusra front – the extreme wing of the “rebels” that the US is allegedly supporting? Well as Haaretz just reported, “”the al Qaida-linked Nusra Front on Saturday denounced U. S.-led air strikes on Syria, saying they amounted to a war against Islam and vowing to retaliate against Western and Arab countries that took part.
Er, that doesn’t help the official party line that Syrian rebels are greeting the US with open arms. “We are in a long war. This war will not end in months nor years, this war could last for decades,” the group’s spokesman Abu Firas al-Suri said.
Funny, because earlier today, Syria’s foreign minister Walid al-Muallem was informed, by the US mind you, that the war against ISIS will continue for three years, or just after until the end of Obama’s second, and hopefully final term.

History is a lie?

What if I were to tell you that some of the ‘facts’ that you, I, and every member of the last couple of generations took as truth were, in fact, false? Let’s take something as monumental as how one of the greatest tyrants in the past century died. Now, we have all been taught that Adolf Hitler took his own life, along with the life of his wife, Eva Braun, on April 30th, 1945 as the Allied Forces marched toward victory and Berlin. Accounts vary as to whether he was killed by a self-inflicted gunshot wound, or by ingesting cyanide. But, all ‘historical’ accounts claim that Adolf and Eva died together In Hitler’s Berlin Bunker. What if I were to tell you that there has been substantial evidence found to prove that this is absolutely false, and nothing more than propaganda? The real evidence shows that:
At Midnight on April 27th 1945 Adolf Hitler, Eva Braun, and her brother in-law SS General Hermann Fegelein slipped away from the hell of the Fhrerbunker through a secret tunnel in Hitler’s personal quarters in the devastated Reich Chancellory to the Berlin Underground. They were replaced by doubles chosen by Reichsfuhrer Martin Bormann and his close associate SS-General Heinrich ‘Gestapo’ Mueller. Hitler and his party walked through the Underground tunnels to the exit at Fehrbelliner Strasse. Waiting for them on the cleared roadway of the Hohenzollerndamm was a Ju52 transport aircraft piloted by SS Captain Peter Baumgart of the secretive Luftwaffe Unit KG 200. The group flew to Tonder in Denmark, where the party took a second JU52 to the Luftwaffe base at Travemunde.
Changing planes again the party boarded a long-range JU 252 and flew to the Spanish Military base at Reus, 80 kms south of Barcelona, in Spain.

Hilarious German Satire of Anti-Russian Propaganda

While the German media has been at least as propagandistic as the US/UK media in its resurrection of wild, Cold War-style rhetoric over the Ukraine situation, cracks are beginning to appear. Satire, humor, and ridicule have always been among the best forms of social critique, and the below clip lampooning the information war over Ukraine is among the very best. When people laugh at their government’s propaganda, truth begins to break through. It was true with the Soviet Union and it is true today in the west. Watch and enjoy:

The Real Reasons For U.S. Airstrikes In Syria – Breaking The Assad Regime

With the recent and ongoing airstrikes launched against Syria by the United States and its ‘regional’ and NATO allies, a number of questions have arisen from a variety of quarters who remain entirely confused as to the ongoing angles of the players involved in the Syrian crisis. Confusion, of course, is a natural state resulting from the mainstream media’s attempt to conceal the fact that the United States and NATO/GCC are entirely responsible for the Syrian crisis to begin with as well as for the massive seizure of territory across Iraq and Syria by ISIS militants. These same media outlets have also played a major role in the obfuscation of the understanding of the crisis by providing false delineations and name changes bound to confuse an American population already afflicted with a short attention span.
With even the basic facts surrounding the Syrian crisis forced into obscurity by mass ignorance of their existence, the facts surrounding the recent US bombing of Syria have also given way to more questions.
For that reason, a number of points must be made regarding the recent events and those that will unfold in the future inside Syria.
Information Does Not Equal Coordination
The recent airstrikes by the United States and its allies allegedly against ISIS positions in Syria have been soundly condemned by both Iran and Russia. Both countries have accurately pointed out that the airstrikes were a violation of Syria’s national sovereignty and a violation of international law. Syria, however, has refrained from outrage and has even stated that the United States informed it of the attacks before they took place.
Syria’s reaction has caused many to believe one of two things: First, that the United States truly is focused on eliminating ISIS; and, second that the United States and Syria are now working together to achieve this end.

Australian Senate Kills Civil Liberties with Draconian New Anti-Terror Law in Orwellian Orgy of Baseless Fear-Mongering

Understanding how the power structure thinks, and how it intentionally manipulates the emotions of the masses, is key to overcoming and rolling back totalitarian ambitions. I have spent the last few posts talking about how instilling fear throughout the general populace is one of their primary tactics. Indeed, to borrow a term from Glenn Greenwald, ‘fear-manufacturing’ has been in overdrive across the Five Eyes nations over the past several weeks. In the UK, we saw it used to convince elderly Scots to overwhelming vote against independence, thus swaying the result decisively to the NO side. In the USA, we have seen it used to drum up support for another pointless war in the Middle East, which will benefit nobody except for the military/intelligence-industrial complex.
While these examples are bad enough, nowhere is fear being used in a more clownish and absurd manner to strip the local citizenry of its civil liberties than in Australia. This should come as no surprise, considering that nation’s Prime Minister is a certified raging lunatic. In fact, Tony Abbott is such a little nazi in disguise, I dedicated a post to him back in June titled: Video of the Day – Meet Australia’s Creepy Prime Minister, Tony Abbott.
Remember, when the power structure sees a meme is working they double and triple down on it. With the beheading videos effectively pushing the American public back into a post-9/11 fetal position, it became clear that the fear of ‘beheadings’ is enough to send the Western public into a total panic state. Then, suddenly a plot emerges that ISIS related terrorists were planning to publicly behead an Australian citizen in the middle of Sydney. As usual, mainstream media rushed to scare the shit out of everyone. NBC reported the following:

The Globalist Playbook for the Takeover of the United States

The globalists have published their playbook for the planned takeover of the United States. The playbook consists of a series of massive drills, held in a six week period, in which the subjugation of this country was rehearsed.
The Primary Architect Meet Zbigniew Brzezinski is an insider’s insider and he is one of the architects for the coming globalist takeover of the United States. He and David Rockefeller co-founded the Trilateral Commission. He served as Jimmy Carter’s National Security Adviser. He may as well have been called Mr. President during the Carter years because he ran the US economy into the ground while undermining American sovereignty during the Carter administration.
Many suspect that Brzezinski also controls Obama. He was, after all, Obama’s Russian Studies professor at Columbia back in the 1980′s. We know that he handpicked Jimmy Carter to become the President and many suspect he had a large hand in grooming Obama for the same job. Brzezinski’s close affiliation with Rockefeller makes him a person of interest when it comes to the subjugation, of not only this country, but of the entire planet. Brzezinski is obviously the globalist’s man on the ground and serves the role as puppet master. Therefore, we would be wise to listen and to take seriously what this New World demagogue has to say because he and his globalist colleagues are beyond hiding their intentions, they are making their move because they know if they don’t move soon, that too many people on the planet will awaken and stop their tyranny in its tracks.
Brzezinski Admits That the NWO Is Losing the Propaganda War During a speech in Poland, Brzezinski publicly lamented that it has become ‘increasingly difficult to suppress’ and control the ‘persistent and highly motivated populist resistance of politically awakened and historically resentful peoples.’ Brzezinski is clearly referring to us, the people in the truthful media.

High Cost of Bad Journalism on Ukraine

The costs of the mainstream U. S. media’s wildly anti-Moscow bias in the Ukraine crisis are adding up, as the Obama administration has decided to react to alleged ‘Russian aggression’ by investing as much as $1 trillion in modernizing the U. S. nuclear weapons arsenal.
On Monday, a typically slanted New York Times article justified these modernization plans by describing ‘Russia on the warpath’ and adding: ‘Congress has expressed less interest in atomic reductions than looking tough in Washington’s escalating confrontation with Moscow.’
But the Ukraine crisis has been a textbook case of the U. S. mainstream media misreporting the facts of a foreign confrontation and then misinterpreting the meaning of the events, a classic case of ‘garbage in, garbage out.’ The core of the false mainstream narrative is that Russian President Vladimir Putin instigated the crisis as an excuse to reclaim territory for the Russian Empire.
While that interpretation of events has been the cornerstone of Official Washington’s ‘group think,’ the reality always was that Putin favored maintaining the status quo in Ukraine. He had no plans to ‘invade’ Ukraine and was satisfied with the elected government of President Viktor Yanukovych. Indeed, when the crisis heated up last February, Putin was distracted by the Sochi Winter Olympics.
Rather than Putin’s ‘warmongering’ – as the Times said in the lead-in to another Monday article – the evidence is clear that it was the United States and the European Union that initiated this confrontation in a bid to pull Ukraine out of Russia’s sphere of influence and into the West’s orbit.
