CNN asks serial lying liar to comment on the CDC whistleblower scandal!

You want a perfect example of how mainstream media covers up the truth and endangers lives? Here it is.
Yesterday, CNN published an article about CDC whistleblower William Thompson.
(CNN: ‘Journal questions validity of autism and vaccine study’ – the CNN reporter for this story is Debra Goldschmidt (twitter: @debgcnn). Jacque Wilson and Miriam Falco also contributed to this story. The story is augmented with a video featuring CNN senior medical correspondent Elizabeth Cohen (twitter: @elizcohencnn). The Spanish language version of the story is here.)
The day before yesterday, Thompson confessed that he and other CDC coauthors fabricated a 2004 CDC study, in order to hide an MMR-vaccine connection to autism.
Those other co-authors included Dr. Frank DeStefano. DeStefano was the lead author of the 2004 study.
So naturally… CNN goes to DeStefano for a quote defending the safety of vaccines, and De Stefano, the accused liar, tells another lie without blushing, without missing a beat.
He says:
‘We know the brain and cellular features for children begin when the child is still in the womb. The brain is already developing the wiring that will manifest in autism.’
In other words, according to DeStefano, vaccines couldn’t cause autism, because it’s already forming before the child has ever had a vaccine.
If that were true, why bother to do thousands of studies that allege there is no vaccine-autism connection?

Imminent Terrorist Attack Warning By Feds on US Border

Islamic terrorist groups are operating in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez and planning to attack the United States with car bombs or other vehicle born improvised explosive devices (VBIED). High-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources have confirmed to Judicial Watch that a warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border has been issued. Agents across a number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies have all been placed on alert and instructed to aggressively work all possible leads and sources concerning this imminent terrorist threat.

Kick Russia Out Of SWIFT, UK Demands; But Beware The Retaliation…

UK Prime Minister David Cameron came out swinging this morning; not only at ISIS but in calling for European leaders to block Russia from the SWIFT banking transaction system. European leaders have already (via unnamed sources) denied any actual new sanctions will take place (though they will be discussing them at the NATO Summit) but – as we have noted previously – this is yet another unintended consequence-driven nail in the coffin of USD hegemony…
Bloomberg reports that the U. K. Said to Press EU to Block Russia From Banking Network
The U. K. will press European Union leaders to consider blocking Russian access to the SWIFT banking transaction system under an expansion of sanctions over the conflict in Ukraine, a British government official said. The Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication, known as SWIFT, is one of Russia’s main connections to the international financial system. Prime Minister David Cameron’s government plans to put the topic on the agenda for a meeting of EU leaders in Brussels Aug. 30, according to the official, who asked not to be named because the discussions are private.
This has consequences…

$40 Million Lawsuit Filed in Ferguson

Missouri police have been sued for $40 million over actions in Ferguson protests by several people alleging civil rights violations through arrests and police assaults with rubber bullets and tear gas adopting ‘militaristic displays of force and weaponry,’ and engaged U. S. citizens ‘as if they were war combatants.’
It will be interesting to say the least for this is the trend in motion – the militaristic police that have taken this to a whole new level. Even the tiny town of Keene, N. H., it wasreported that Mayor Kendall Lane whispered to Councilman Mitch Greenwald during a December city council meeting that they were going to get their own tank,. The town is tiny with a population of just 23,000. They have had only two murders since 1999. The U. S. Department of Homeland Security gave them a $285,933 grant to purchase a Bearcat manufactured by LENCO, an eight-ton armored personnel vehicle.

Why Does the U.S. Support a Country FOUNDED With Terrorism, Which Is the MAIN SOURCE of Islamic Terrorism Today?

America Has Sold Its Soul for Oil A U. S. congressman for 6 years, who is now a talking head on MSNBC (Joe Scarborough) says that – even if the Saudi government backed the 9/11 attacks – Saudi oil is too important to do anything about it:

This is not an isolated incident. It is a microcosm of U. S.-Saudi relations.
By way of background, former MI6 agent Alastair Crooke notes that Saudi Arabia was founded with terrorism:
One dominant strand to the Saudi identity pertains directly to Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab (the founder of Wahhabism), and the use to which his radical, exclusionist puritanism was put by Ibn Saud. (The latter was then no more than a minor leader – amongst many – of continually sparring and raiding Bedouin tribes in the baking and desperately poor deserts of the Nejd.)

Rand Paul Slams US Interventionists’ “Unhinged Foreign Policy” For Abetting The Rise Of ISIS

As the murderous, terrorist Islamic State continues to threaten Iraq, the region and potentially the United States, it is vitally important that we examine how this problem arose. Any actions we take today must be informed by what we’ve already done in the past, and how effective our actions have been.
Shooting first and asking questions later has never been a good foreign policy. The past year has been a perfect example.
In September President Obama and many in Washington were eager for a U. S. intervention in Syria to assist the rebel groups fighting President Bashar Assad’s government. Arguing against military strikes, I wrote that “Bashar Assad is clearly not an American ally. But does his ouster encourage stability in the Middle East, or would his ouster actually encourage instability?”
The administration’s goal has been to degrade Assad’s power, forcing him to negotiate with the rebels. But degrading Assad’s military capacity also degrades his ability to fend off the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham. Assad’s government recently bombed the self-proclaimed capital of ISIS in Raqqa, Syria.

White House Scrambles To ‘Clarify’ Obama’s “ISIS Strategy”

“Strategy” or “No Strategy”? Minutes after last night’s admission by the President that “we don’t have a strategy yet,” the White House public relations department went into full damage control mode. Shameless spokesman Josh Earnest used the word “strategy” 33 times in a brief interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer and this morning the “clarifications” continue. As NBC reports, ‘The president hasn’t yet laid out a specific plan for military action in Syria,’ White House press secretary Josh Earnest. ‘And the reason for that is simply that the Pentagon is still developing that plan and he is still reviewing it.’ This seems to us like yet another admission that there is ‘no strategy’ akin to being half pregnant.
Seemed pretty clear what he meant?

The Regulatory Attack on US Business Is Not the Real Problem

The criminalisation of American business … Corporate settlements in the United States The criminalisation of American business Companies must be punished when they do wrong, but the legal system has become an extortion racket … Who runs the world’s most lucrative shakedown operation? The Sicilian mafia? The People’s Liberation Army in China? The kleptocracy in the Kremlin? If you are a big business, all these are less grasping than America’s regulatory system. The formula is simple: find a large company that may (or may not) have done something wrong; threaten its managers with commercial ruin, preferably with criminal charges; force them to use their shareholders’ money to pay an enormous fine to drop the charges in a secret settlement (so nobody can check the details). Then repeat with another large company. The amounts are mind-boggling. – Economist magazine
Dominant Social Theme: Let these multinationals breathe. Give them air and freedom and keep the lawyers away from them.
Free-Market Analysis: The Economist magazine has decided a major problem with the US economy is that its largest multinational corporations and banks are being held for ransom by avaricious lawyers.

Has Ukraine Shot Itself In The Foot With Gas Pipeline Deal?

Last week, Ukrainian Prime Minister Yatsenyuk pushed a bill through the Verkhovna Rada that would see his country’s gas transportation system sold off to a group of international investors. The provisions of the law would permit the transit of natural gas to be blocked. This decision may hurt the fragile industrial recovery in Germany and finish off Ukraine’s potential as a gas transit route to Europe.
Germany, which is the industrial heart of the European Union and a major creditor for its debtor nations, is facing the challenge of the double-edged consequences of its inverted Ostpolitik as it pertains to the trade in natural gas. Even the temporary transit risks ensuing from Kiev’s decision to block the pipeline may cause a business slump.
The Nobel laureate Joseph Stiglitz offered an unnerving forecast for the German economy. The Columbia University professor, speaking at the conference in the southern German city of Lindau, described economic growth in the Eurozone as ‘sluggish.’ The German economy in particular failed to grow during the second quarter, threatening the EU’s fragile industrial recovery.
In the years to come, coping with Kiev’s attempts to jeopardize the gas-transit system and cut off Europe from its quintessential energy source in the east could become a real headache for Germany’s foreign minister, Frank-Walter Steinmeier. The most vivid example of Ukraine’s self-destructive policy that has the potential to affect European taxpayers is the recent sale of its gas transportation system.

UK’s Cameron Goes Full Scaremonger: “We Will Be Fighting ISIS For Decades”

Following his nation’s elevated terror threat level, UK Prime Minister David Cameron went full scaremonger:
“We are in the middle of a generational struggle against a poisonous extremist ideology that I believe we will be fighting for years and probably decades.”
Warning that “ISIS represents a greater threat than anything before,” (even Hitler?) he plans to introduce new laws to “make it easier to take people’s passports away.”

FEDS DENY ‘VEHICLE TO VEHICLE COMMUNICATIONS’ TECH WILL BE USED TO SPY ON DRIVERS

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has denied that planned rule changes which will mandate cars be fitted with ‘vehicle to vehicle communications’ technology will be used to spy on drivers as part of government data collection.
In an advisory, the NHTSA announced its intention to, ‘create a new Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard, FMVSS No. 150, to require vehicle-to-vehicle communication capability for light vehicles.’
Under the proposal, every car would have to broadcast and receive a ‘Basic Safety Message’ using a short range communications system which would ‘process the content of received messages to provide advisories and/or warnings to the driver of the vehicle in which it is installed.’

Disarmed: Texas Governor Rick Perry Loses Right To Carry Firearm

The right to bear arms shall not be infringed?
Recently indicted Texas Governor Rick Perry can no longer carry a concealed weapon.
A felony indictment for abuse of power will hit Texas Governor Rick Perry, an avowed gun enthusiast, where it hurts – by curtailing some of his rights to bear firearms.

Under state law, Perry, a staunch supporter of gun rights who said he shot a coyote to death with a pistol while jogging in Austin in 2010, is no longer allowed a license to carry a concealed handgun because of the indictment.

CBO: Obamacare Discourages Work

Remember all those allegations that Obamacare would be an unmitigated disaster for businesses, especially smaller companies? Well, now we have some facts. A week ago we noted that the Philly Fed found that Obamacare was a disaster for business, and now no lessor entity than the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) is out with its latest forecasts, concluding “certain aspects of the Affordable Care Act will tend to reduce labor force participation.”

REPORT: PENTAGON FORCED MILITARY GEAR ON POLICE DEPARTMENTS

Following scrutiny surrounding the Ferguson uprising earlier this month, several local law enforcement agencies have stated that they wish to return military gear which they feel was somewhat forced onto them by The Department of Defense.
That has turned out to be easier said than done however, as the counties in which the sheriff’s offices and police departments are based are being asked to absorb the cost of transporting huge armored vehicles.
The details are revealed in a report by The Washington Times, which found ‘a number of departments complaining about the heavy armored vehicles that have been transferred, finding them to be overkill for the jobs local law enforcement needs to do.’
For example, the sheriff’s department in Chelan County, near Seattle, was forced to take three armored, tracked vehicles at the insistence of the Pentagon, when it had only asked for one in 1999.
The ten ton trucks, which were designed to carry 107 millimeter mortars, are still owned by The Pentagon. However, the military is less than keen to take them back.
‘We don’t care; we just want to get rid of them,’ said Undersheriff John Wisemore. ‘We realized they weren’t as safe for what we were going to be using them for.’

Washington Piles Lie Upon Lie – Paul Craig Roberts

The latest Washington lie, this one coming from NATO, is that Russia has invaded Ukraine with 1,000 troops and self-propelled artillery.
How do we know that this is a lie? Is it because we have heard nothing but lies about Russia from NATO, from US ambassador to the UN Samantha Power, from assistant secretary of state Victoria Nuland, from Obama and his entire regime of pathological liars, and from the British, German, and French governments along with the BBC and the entirety of the Western media?
This, of course, is a good reason for knowing that the latest Western propaganda is a lie. Those who are pathological liars don’t suddenly start telling the truth.
But there are even better reasons for understanding that Russia has not invaded Ukraine with 1,000 troops.
One reason is that Putin has invested heavily in diplomacy backed by unprovocative behavior. He would not risk his bet on diplomacy by sending in troops too few in number to have a decisive effect on the outcome.
Another reason is that if Putin decides he has no alternative to sending the Russian military to protect the Russian residents in eastern and southern Ukraine, Putin will send in enough troops to do the job quickly as he did in Georgia when the American and Israeli trained Georgian army invaded South Ossetia and was destroyed in a few hours by the Russian response. If you hear that 100,000 Russian troops accompanied by air cover have invaded Ukraine, it would be a more believable claim.

City Council to Police: You Have 60 Days to Get Rid of Your MRAP Military Tank

Apparently not all city councils are thrilled with the idea of their local police department driving around ‘protecting’ their streets with mine resistant, ambush protected vehicles straight off the battlefields in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The city council of Davis, California, a town of about 66,000 people near Sacramento, has now adopted a resolution to ‘tank the tank’ as one protester put it, after a large crowd of concerned citizens showed up to the council’s most recent meeting. CBS13 reports:
The vehicle, worth nearly $700,000 didn’t cost the Davis Police Department a dime, as it was acquired through a federal government surplus program. The MRAP was developed by the military for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. After Pentagon budget cuts, the vehicle has been making its way to local law enforcement…
A big concern for protesters is the vehicle could be used to quash peaceful protests and demonstrations, especially in light of clashes between heavily-armored police and protesters in Ferguson, Missouri, following the shooting death of Michael Brown.

UK Raises Terror Threat Level To Severe (From Substantial)

*UK TERROR THREAT LEVEL RAISED TO SEVERE FROM SUBSTANTIAL *REAL AND SERIOUS THREAT IN THE UK FROM TERRORISM, MAY SAYS Her decision is based on the latest intelligence from Syria and Iraq (and we suspect, as Brandon Smith notes, “the goal will be to terrify you and those around you into seeking out a more powerful, more centralized government authority to protect your security.”)

‘A Man of Many Perversions’ – Federal Cybersecurity Head Convicted of Child Porn Charges

The following story is a warning as to why centralized power is so dangerous. It doesn’t matter whether the power is political or corporate, overly centralized power in all forms must be resisted whenever it appears. The worst of all worlds is when centralized political and corporate power unite in an unholy alliance, which is what has happened to America in recent decades. When this occurs, the combined forces of oligarchy simply begin to rapaciously feast on the citizenry with zero accountability. This is a fair description of the United States in 2014.
The primary problem with centralized power is that sociopaths (for obvious reasons) gravitate toward, and greatly covet, positions of power. Once entrenched in such positions, they are able to act upon their perversions with general immunity, and if they are caught, are often left in positions of power by others who at that point ‘own them’ via blackmail. This of course is nothing new, it is how the game of power, politics and economics has been played since the beginning of time. It is also why decentralization of poweris the natural evolution we as a species must embrace in order to build a better world.
Enter Timothy DeFoggi, the one-time cybersecurity director of the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services, who received several awards for his government ‘service’ over the years. The self-proclaimed man of ‘many perversions,’ frequented a child porn site called PedoBook where he ‘exchanged private messages with other members expressing interest in raping, beating and murdering infants and toddlers.’

08.27.14 1830 ET: Reports Russian Armor has Invaded Ukraine, Heading towards Mariupol

While the ‘one’ continues to golf, the world moves forward in a perilous fashion. Reports are coming from the Ukrainian government and numerous reliable sources via Twitter and domestic news services that Russian troops have indeed crossed the frontier in Southeastern Ukraine and are well on their way to sealing the escape routes via the Sea of Azov creating panic in Kiev as the Ukrainian military appears to be disintegrating in the Donbas and facing possible annihilation in retaliation for the actions of the mercenary forces recruited by the Poroshenko government.
