- “Hillary For President” Fundraiser Busted For Illegal Campaign Contributions (ZeroHedge, April 17, 2014):

If you listen carefully, you can hear the stampede of politicians distancing themselves from their once best-friend – Hotel magnate Sant Singh Chatwal – as AP reports, he plead guilty Thursday to charges he secretly funneled more than $180,000 in illegal campaign contributions to three unnamed candidates and coached someone to lie about it.

Without the contributions “nobody will even talk to you,” Chatwal said. “That’s the only way to buy them, get into the system.”

Welcome to the ugly truth of American politik.

The FT details that Sant Singh Chatwal, chairman of Hampshire Hotels Management, pleaded guilty on Thursday to making more than $180,000 in illegal federal campaign donations to three candidates through “straw donors” who were reimbursed, the DoJ said in a statement. Continue reading »

- Liberty Movement Rising (ALT-MArket, April 17, 2014):

“Freedom had been hunted round the globe; reason was considered as rebellion; and the slavery of fear had made men afraid to think. But such is the irresistible nature of truth, that all it asks, and all it wants, is the liberty of appearing.”  – Thomas Paine

The label of “fringe” is a common one used by statists, bureaucrats and paid shills in order to marginalize those who would stand against government corruption. The primary assertion being sold is that the “majority” joyously supports the establishment; and the majority, of course, is always right.

The liberty movement, which is a collection of numerous freedom organizations and political activists brought together by a shared philosophical bond, has been accused of “fringe” status for quite some time. With corporatist dominance over the mainstream media for decades backing an elitist machine in Washington and a global banking cartel footing the bill with money created from thin air, any such accusation can be made to seem “real” to those who are unaware.

The problem has always been a matter of physical action giving rise to an acknowledgment of numbers.

We have all heard the old story of the debate within the ancient Roman government over the idea of forcing the slave population to wear distinct armbands so that they could be more easily identified among the regular population. The concept was rejected on the realization that if the slaves were given a visual confirmation of their considerable numbers and strength, they would be encouraged to revolt against the Roman tyrants. That is to say, as long as the slaves felt isolated, they would remain apathetic and powerless. Of course, that was not always the case. Sometimes, a small group would stand up despite their supposed isolation, and the rest of the world, wide-eyed and astonished, would take notice.

- Mistake at Congressional Hearing? Senator: “Radioactive releases from WIPP have been at levels that are a public health danger” — EPA: “This is a big deal” (VIDEO) (ENENews, April 17, 2014):

Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on the Department of the Interior, Environment and Related Agencies, published Apr. 9, 2014 (at 3:00 in):

  • Sen. Tom Udall, New Mexico: I appreciate that many in your agency have made it clear that the radioactive releases from WIPP have been at levels that are a public health danger and I’m hopeful that you’re monitoring and verification will continue to support their unfortunately the facts are the two accidents have happened to WIPP that we’re not supposed to happen — a fire in a mine and a radiological release. DOE oversight has already been found to be lacking and that’s why it’s important to the community that an independent public health agency like EPA be on the ground overseeing the recovery phase to ensure public health is protected. [...]
  • Gina McCarthy, EPA Administrator: EPA’s main job in this is to ensure that we’re looking at any level that could have been exceeded in terms of protectiveness to the outside, so that the surrounding communities are aware of any concerns [...] So far, it looks like any release has been far below any levels that are necessary for protection [...] We know people have concerns, this is a big deal.

- TV: No doctor can explain what’s happening to Navy officer’s body — “I’m basically kind of deteriorating” after Fukushima radiation exposure — My leg is 17 centimeters smaller, same with my right arm — Radiation levels missing from medical records (VIDEO) (ENENews, April 17, 2014):

Ameera David, RT reporter, Apr. 13, 2014 (at 6:45 in): “For the last 3 years, former Navy officer Michael Sebourn has been perplexed by a health condition that no doctor can seemingly explain. Just 4 months after [Operation Tomodachi] Sebourn woke up and found that he could no longer push or pull with his right arm. And he would later find out that his arm had been quickly losing muscle mass. [...] Doctors are still trying to diagnose Sebourn after more than a dozen medical visits and countless neurological exams.”

Interview with Michael Sebourn, a former US Navy officer responsible for measuring radiation exposure to equipment and US personnel, Apr. 13, 2014 (at 7:00 in): “Same with my right leg. My right leg is actually 17 centimeters smaller than my left leg. So I’m basically kind of deteriorating from the right side. They’re trying to figure out why that is. [...] That was my job [to measure radiation levels]. So to say that it is normal day-to-day radiation is 100-percent bogus. [...] A normal background radiation from the sun, the rocks … is about 15 to 30 CCPMs [Corrected Counts Per Minute.] At one point in Atsugi I was reading 300 to 400 CCPMs just in the air.”

- Why Israeli Officials are Chuckling: The ‘Stable’ West Bank Dilemma (Ramzy Baroud):

By Ramzy Baroud

Israel’s deputy foreign minister, Ze’ev Elkin, is a member of Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party and his predominantly rightwing cabinet. In a recent interview with The Economist, Elkin used the familiar tone of being conceited and oblivious to such notions as international or human rights, and reaffirmed his rejection of a Palestinian state.Instead, Elkin wants Israel to annex a chunk of the West Bank. There is nothing new here, as such language is now official Israeli discourse. But one statement stood out, one that many Palestinians would find bewildering and exasperating.

These days, said Elkin with a chuckle, the West Bank is “the most stable part of the Middle East”.

The bewilderment would stem from the fact that the West Bank is an occupied Palestinian territory. Its population is held at gunpoint; they have no freedom, and enjoy no rights. Their land is seized by force to make room for more settlements and illegal Jewish settlers, now numbering well passed the half million mark.

Needless to say, the West Bank should not be stable. Continue reading »

- Interview: Navy sailor’s skin inflamed while carrying American flag exposed to Fukushima plume — “Whole left side” of body affected — “They immediately stripped clothes off, hosed him down… it became an extreme emergency” (AUDIO) (ENENews, April 15, 2014):

Interview with Charles Bonner, attorney for sickened USS Reagan sailors exposed to Fukushima releases, Linda Moulton Howe’s EarthFiles, Mar. 27, 2014:

Transcript excerpt starting at 2m 30s in

  • One sailor had been told to go up to the top of the ship and take down the American flag. He went and took the American flag down and folded it up in the triangle way they usually folded up the flag, and put it under his arm, and went all the way down to the bottom of the ship to store it. By the time he reached the bottom of the ship, his whole left side where the flag was had become inflamed. They immediately stripped his clothes off, hosed him down, washed him down with soap. He is naked there in front of all the sailors, men and women, because it became an extreme emergency. Then 17 other sailors were immediately scrubbed down.
  • He had to be discharged, he and his wife — he had ended up marrying a young lady on the ship — they both had to be discharged for medical reasons. She developed major leukemias, uterine cancers, uncontrolled uterine bleeding. And they both received a medical discharge.

- “We’ve been deceived” — Asahi: Gov’t withheld Fukushima radiation data; Not released until residents moved back in — Kyodo: Skepticism growing; “Incident likely to amplify public health concerns” (ENENews, April 17, 2014):

Asahi Shimbun, Apr. 16, 2014: The government withheld findings on estimated radiation exposure for Fukushima returnees for six months, even though levels exceeded the long-term target of 1 millisievert a year at more than half of surveyed locations [...] Asahi Shimbun learned April 15. The revelation comes just two weeks after the central government lifted the evacuation order for the district on April 1. [...] But some evacuees from areas affected by the Fukushima No. 1 plant nuclear accident [...] worry about the possibility they may be exposed to high radiation doses after returning to their homes. [...] In mid-October, the two agencies compiled a midterm report and submitted it to the government. But the Cabinet Office’s working team did not disclose the report until the evacuation order for the Miyakoji district was lifted. According to a member of the team, this was because the finding “has no direct relationship with lifting the evacuation orders.” Although the government held numerous meetings with Miyakoji residents to discuss lifting the evacuation order, it never presented the survey results, nor did it even refer to the existence of the data.

- L.A. News Outlet: Fukushima plume worries to sink fishing industry? Area newspapers “warning readers to avoid eating locally-caught fish” — Homeland Security Center director: Banana has 100 times more radiation (VIDEO) (ENENews, April 17, 2014):

Neon Tommy (L.A.-based news source, USC’s Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism), Apr. 16, 2014: Could Radiation Fear Sink The Fishing Industry? — Fisherman Mike McCorkle has been fishing for 60 years and contends that he may be facing his biggest challenge yet. In the past few months he says that Korean newspapers in the L.A area have been warning their readers to avoid eating locally-caught fish. The Korean press claims that locally-caught fish contain radiation. [...] Woods Hole Institute of Oceanography [sic] [...] confirmed that a plume of radiation from Fukushima will arrive on the American West coast in April [...] Although the science refutes any danger from consumption of Pacific fish [See: Expert: Cancer increase for West Coast from Fukushima exposures; No safe dose of radiation] some still retain a fear of radiation. Santa Barbara’s Seagrass Restaurant no longer serves Pacific fish. [...] One source of [the head chef's] fear is because he subscribes to the independent news site ENE News, which compiles negative news on Fukushima and its effects on seafood. [...]

Asian Perspective Vol. 37, No. 4, Tilman A. Ruff, physician and Associate Professor in the Nossal Institute for Global Health at University of Melbourne, Oct.-Dec. 2013: A Public Health Perspective on the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster — The Fukushima nuclear disaster is far from over and remains a global health concern. While evacuations, sheltering, reducing intake of contaminated food, and other measures reduced radiation exposures, both the immediate and longer-term public health responses to the disaster leave major room for improvement.

- Kiev: Military operation in Ukraine southeast to go on despite Geneva agreement (RT, April 17, 2014):

Despite calls for a peaceful dialogue in the document on Ukraine adopted in Geneva, the coup-imposed Ukrainian Foreign Minister said it will not affect the “anti-terrorist” operation in the East of the country and the troops will remain there.

Soon after the Geneva document, adopted at a four-side meeting between Ukraine, the US, the EU and Russia, was published, Ukraine’s acting Foreign Minister Andrey Deshchytsa said Kiev is not bound by its recommendations.

According to Deshchytsa cited by RIA Novosti, “the troops in the East of the country are carrying out a special operation and can remain where they are.”

This comes despite the statement issued by the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry following the meeting, which says: Continue reading »

Paul-Krugman-Keynesians-Fail

- Krugman, Who Is Paid $25,000/Month To Study Inequality, Says “Nobody Wants Us To Become Cuba” (ZeroHedge, April 17, 2014):

When it comes to Krugman’s views on any particular topic, he may be right and he may be wrong, but whatever his opinion he always has a much to say about it (even if the factual backing is of secondary importance or outright missing). Today, his chosen topic is inequality, and in an interview with Bloomberg’s Tom Keene, shown and transcribed below, he certainly says much, encapsulated perhaps by the following gem:

“There’s zero evidence that the kind of extreme inequality that we have is good for economic growth. In fact, there’s a lot of evidence that it is actually bad for economic growth. Nobody wants us to become Cuba. The question is, do we have to have levels of inequality that are getting close to being the highest levels ever anywhere. We’re really starting to set new records here. Is that a good thing for anybody? If you look at our own history, it’s not true. The fact of the matter is since inequality began soaring around 1980, the bottom half of America has been pretty much left behind. It has not been a rising tide that raised all boats.”

- Report: Mike Ruppert, former LAPD officer who exposed CIA drug dealing, dead at 63 (WTF RLY Report, April 15, 2014):

Raw Story

The 63-year-old Ruppert had previously worked as a Los Angeles police officer, and he gained notoriety in 1995 for an encounter with then-CIA Director John Deutch during a town hall meeting.

Ruppert, a former narcotics officer, told Deutch he’d seen evidence of CIA complicity in drug dealing.

He published and edited the website From The Wilderness, where he claimed the CIA and U.S. government were involved in the September 11, 2001, terrorist plots.

Watch As A Ukraine MiG “Buzzes The Trees” To Spook East Ukraine Civilians (ZeroHedge, April 17, 2014):

A few days ago, in an attempt to regain the Krematorsk air base in the “separatist” eastern region, as part of the “counter-terrorist” offensive launched against Pro-Russian separatists, Kiev also started what according to reports was an airborne press by Ukraine Mig fight jets. The condemnation by Russia to such an escalation against the country’s own people was swift, and curiously, so was that by Ukraine’s own troops which deserted the country’s army to join eastern forces, taking with them an unknown number of tanks and APCs.

So in what perhaps is a follow on attempt to preempt further escalation, Ukraine’s air force has adopted a maneuver taken straight out of Top Gun’s “Buzzing the Tower” approach, only this one involves “Buzzing the Tress.” Continue reading »

- Putin Says Russia Will Respond To NATO Moves, Accuses Kiev Of Plunging Ukraine Into “Abyss” (ZeroHedge April 17, 2014):

It didn’t take long for Putin to respond to the latest news from the west that NATO was about to boost its military presence in proximity to Russia. Specifically he said that Putin does not see a reason to fear NATO which was to be expected. But the even more predictable punchline: Russia must respond when NATO moves closer to country’s border, President Vladimir Putin says during annual televised call-in show.

Putin dial in

The Russian president made his views clear during a nationally televised question-and-answer session in Moscow on Thursday, ahead of the Geneva two-day meeting during which the Ukraine problam is (again) supposed to get a diplomatic solution (it won’t). During the Q&A Putin also accused the Kiev government of committing “a serious crime” by sending in troops to quell unrest in Ukraine’s east, as a clash overnight left three pro-Russian protesters dead and 13 wounded. And just to make sure there is a solid enough soundbite, the former KGB spy accused the authorities in Kiev of plunging the country into an “abyss”. Continue reading »

- Yahoo’s de Castro got $58M for 15 months on job (USA Today, April 17, 2014):

Henrique de Castro’s 15 months as Yahoo’s chief operating officer may have ended on a sour note, but it was sweetened by a severance package valued at nearly $58 million.

All but about $1 million of de Castro’s severance was based in the value of his equity award in Yahoo, which began appreciating after former Google colleague Marissa Mayer joined the company in July 2012. He became Mayer’s first big hire just four months later. But in a letter to employees following de Castro’s Jan. 16 ouster, Mayer said she “made the difficult decision” that he should leave.

His exit package outpaced Mayer’s 2013 compensation, valued at $24.9 million. She gained an additional $21.2 million from vested shares, Yahoo said in a preliminary proxy filing Wednesday.

- Report: Research Facility “Loses” Thousands of Tubes Containing Deadly Virus (SHFTplan, April 16, 2014):

A French research institute working on various deadly viruses, including SARS, has apparently misplaced thousands of tubes and no one is quite sure where they went.

A routine inventory check at Paris’ Pasteur Institute revealed that 2,349 tubes containing fragments of the virus responsible for the deaths of 774 people in 2002 were missing, the centre named after French chemist Louis Pasteur said.

It is not clear how the tubes disappeared from one of the institute’s safest laboratories. Management were made aware of the loss in January, Le Monde newspaper reported.

For weeks, staff at the institute tried to find the missing vials, general director Christian Bréchot said.

“We’ve looked for those boxes [containing the tubes] everywhere,” Bréchot explained.

“We went thought the lists of all the people who have worked here in the past year and a half, including trainees. We have scrutinised their profile to check if there was any conflict.”

Bréchot said that foul play was “highly improbable” but had not been ruled out.

Though it’s not clear how, investigators have pretty much ruled out foul play. But keep in mind that we’re talking about a deadly virus that has been removed from what should be a highly secured area.  Moreover, no one seems to know when the virus was actually taken. Continue reading »

- Ron Paul warns that Bundy ranch standoff isn’t over just yet (RT, April 16, 2014):

A heated land dispute between the federal government and a Nevada cattle rancher subsided over the weekend, but longtime lawmaker and former presidential hopeful Ron Paul says tensions might soon worsen once again.

An armed standoff between Cliven Bundy and the United States Bureau of Land Management ended on Saturday with the federal agency agreeing to release around 400 head of cattle it had seized from the Clark County, Nevada rancher. The bureau said Bundy owed roughly $1 million to the government because for the last two decades he failed to pay a fee for letting his cattle graze on federal land, but the rancher insisted that he owed the agency nothing. Supporters soon took up arms and flocked to the Bunch ranch to stand by in support as feds began to seize nearly 1,000 head of cattle, but over the weekend the BLM aborted their attempt to confiscate the animals in order avoid any violent showdown that might have emerged.

From the article:

“Defendant Singer told plaintiff how ‘this group’ controls Hollywood.”


Bryan Singer
Bryan Singer, whose latest film ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ is set to hit theaters on May 23, has been slapped with a shocking lawsuit, but denies the allegations.

- ‘X-Men’ director Bryan Singer accused of sexually abusing 15-year-old boy at California mansion (NY Daily News, April 17, 2014):

Bryan Singer, whose first hit as a director was 1995’s ‘The Usual Suspects,’ allegedly met accuser Michael Egan III, then 15, in 1998 at a mansion in Encino, Calif., that was the site of regular drug-fueled underage sex romps.

Famous Hollywood director Bryan Singer has been accused in a new federal lawsuit of sexually abusing a 15-year-old boy.

The suit, filed Wednesday in federal court in Hawaii, accused the 48-year-old “X-Men” filmmaker of first preying on the 15-year-old aspiring actor at a party at a California mansion where underage boys were plied with drugs and alcohol and taken advantage of.

If there is was one way to assure a certain escalation in Ukraine hostilities beyond what has already happened, it is for NATO to do precisely what Russia warned it should not do: build up its presence in the surrounding countries. Which is why we find it somewhat puzzling that NATO announced it would do just this when as the Guardian reported, the military alliance said it would step up its presence around Russian borders to “reassure eastern European member states.” Continue reading »

- America’s Coup Machine: Destroying Democracy Since 1953 (AlterNet, April 8, 2014):

U.S. efforts to overthrow foreign governments leave the world less peaceful, less just and less hopeful.

Soon after the 2004 U.S. coup to depose President Jean-Bertrand Aristide of Haiti, I heard Aristide’s lawyer Ira Kurzban speaking in Miami.  He began his talk with a riddle: “Why has there never been a coup in Washington D.C.?”  The answer: “Because there is no U.S. Embassy in Washington D.C.”  This introduction was greeted with wild applause by a mostly Haitian-American audience who understood it only too well.

Ukraine’s former security chief, Aleksandr Yakimenko, has reported that the coup-plotters who overthrew the elected government in Ukraine, “basically lived in the (U.S.) Embassy.  They were there every day.”  We also know from a leaked Russian intercept that they were in close contact with Ambassador Pyatt and the senior U.S. official in charge of the coup, former Dick Cheney aide Victoria Nuland, officially the U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs.  And we can assume that many of their days in the Embassy were spent in strategy and training sessions with their individual CIA case officers.

To place the coup in Ukraine in historical context, this is at least the 80th time the United States has organized a coup or a failed coup in a foreign country since 1953.  That was when President Eisenhower discovered in Iran that the CIA could overthrow elected governments who refused to sacrifice the future of their people to Western commercial and geopolitical interests.  Most U.S. coups have led to severe repression, disappearances, extrajudicial executions, torture, corruption, extreme poverty and inequality, and prolonged setbacks for the democratic aspirations of people in the countries affected.  The plutocratic and ultra-conservative nature of the forces the U.S. has brought to power in Ukraine make it unlikely to be an exception.

Noam Chomsky calls William Blum’s classic, Killing Hope: U.S. Military and CIA Interventions since World War II, “Far and away the best book on the topic.”  If you’re looking for historical context for what you are reading or watching on TV about the coup in Ukraine, Killing Hope will provide it.  The title has never been more apt as we watch the hopes of people from all regions of Ukraine being sacrificed on the same altar as those of people in Iran (1953); Guatemala(1954); Thailand (1957); Laos (1958-60); the Congo (1960); Turkey (1960, 1971 & 1980); Ecuador (1961 & 1963); South Vietnam (1963); Brazil (1964); the Dominican Republic (1963); Argentina (1963); Honduras (1963 & 2009); Iraq (1963 & 2003); Bolivia (1964, 1971 & 1980); Indonesia (1965); Ghana (1966); Greece (1967); Panama (1968 & 1989); Cambodia (1970); Chile (1973); Bangladesh (1975); Pakistan (1977); Grenada (1983); Mauritania (1984); Guinea (1984); Burkina Faso (1987); Paraguay (1989); Haiti (1991 & 2004); Russia (1993); Uganda (1996);and Libya (2011).  This list does not include a roughly equal number of failed coups, nor coups in Africa and elsewhere in which a U.S. role is suspected but unproven.

- Jordanian warplanes destroy vehicles trying to cross from Syria: spokesman (Reuters, April 16, 2014):

Jordanian warplanes hit and destroyed several vehicles trying to cross the border from Syria, a government spokesman said on Wednesday, underlining Amman’s concern about incursions from areas controlled by Syrian rebels.

A Jordanian security source said the targets appeared to have been Syrian rebels with machine guns mounted on civilian vehicles who were seeking refugee from fighting with government forces in southern Syria.

The Syrian state news agency SANA said no Syrian vehicles were involved in the incident. “What was targeted by the Jordanian air force does not belong to the Syrian army,” a military source was quoted by SANA as saying.
