"Obama's Endless War on Humanity
by Stephen Lendman
Throughout his tenure, he's waged one war after another at home and abroad.
From militarized killer cops, police state ruthlessness, and his kill list to drone murders and mass slaughter from 30,000 feet.
Obama and Bush II made America more than ever a pariah state.
He's a neocon masquerading as a populist leader. His rap sheet exceeds the worst of his predecessors. He's hard-right, reactionary, belligerent, pro-business, and pro-war.
He's soulless, anti-progressive, anti-populist, anti-labor, anti-fairness, anti-dissent, anti-democratic, anti-rule of law principles, anti-freedom, anti-civil and human rights, anti-environmental sanity, and anti-government of, by and for everyone equitably.
His proxy war on Yemen is his latest atrocity. Millions of lives are at risk.
Countless thousands may die before conflict ends. Human suffering is immeasurable....
You can uproot more with Lendman if you want to hear it, and it occurred to me that I should be covering Yemen, but until that time see Yemen. It's a Marathon to get through, but well worth it, and it won't cost you a penny to check things out.
Upon further reflection:
".... Here is the likely truth of it all. We KNOW that 'they' operate through divide and conquer. We know that disinfo is one of their trademarks, which is why it was so incredibly important for them to gain control of all media, or enough to make the level of impact they are after. Does it not seem obvious that they are positioned on both sides of the argument? Does it not seem most likely that they are promoting both ends and that neither end is correct? We know about their devotion to the Hegelian Dialectic. One of the things most absent in these times is, 'common sense'. Common sense and manners are two of the most desperately missing; certainly not missing in action.
As long as they can keep you arguing with each other about things that they can't prove and you can't prove, you're in a wasteland without objective capability. The directions on the label says, 'do not chew before swallowing'.
I am daily amazed at the shit people believe without the necessary confirmation. I'll allow that one might suggest this is true of me in one particular area but... I have proved these things to myself and that is the ONLY audience that counts as far as what I believe and what I presume to know....
Do I spend my time thinking about ET's? No... they know where to find me. Am I fascinated or curious about crop circles? No. Do I believe that the Masonic system is inherently corrupt or do I believe it was hijacked? The latter is what I think.. Do I believe a lot more is going on than meets the eye or the intellect? Assuredly.
In the ranks of the high and mighty, paedophilia, child murder, rape and torture are an ongoing affair and I believe the number so engaged is not insignificant. Pedophilia is against the law. Murder is against the law but the high and mighty perform mass murder every day. Fraud, embezzlement and counterfeiting are all crimes, yet the high and mighty engage in them every day. There are no acknowledged crimes that they do not engage in. The president of the United States; everyone who works for him, most of the Senate and House of Representatives, the Supreme Court, the FBI and all intelligence agencies are proven criminals and rank traitors to their country. Everything you are not allowed to do they do with seeming impunity. You don't need to know more than this. The real concern is, do these claims and accusations apply to you?
I haven't looked at Les in a while, and I don't know if you want to or not.
Came across this in my travels:
"Tailor-made for the back roads of Western and Central Massachusetts, and because it was so economical, I spent as much time as possible on them. I honed my skills late at night, including on a self-designed Monaco-like tight slow circuit I designed for the small back streets of Northampton that I would run timed laps on at 3 AM.
One day, on the way back to Greenfield from a meeting in Boston, I was outbound on Route Two out beyond Orange. It was late; the road was empty. I was maintaining a good steady 85 mph. As I ducked down into the stretch along the Millers River through Erving, the State Police cruiser lay in wait on that little parallel side street that ran up the hill and then down. He tracked me to the other side of the French King bridge and then snapped on his blues. I coasted to a stop at the side of the road and reached for my license and registration. He got out of his car and walked right past my open drivers’ side window to a spot out in front of the car and looked at the headlights. After about fifteen seconds, he came back and asked what kind of lights they were while he did the obligatory glance at the documents. I told him. He said “I clocked you conservatively at 85 coming through Erving. You’re a very good driver. Slow down and have a good night.”
Wow, he literally is the boy down the lane -- with some really good advice, too.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not angry; just trying to get real and find out what is really happening with Jade Helm so I can be active in seeking the truth and get into the 21st century.
The sun is starting to break through the clouds so you might want to bring some sunglasses for the first few items there.
I try not to blacklist anyone, especially when they provide very thought-provoking pieces that challenge conventional wisdom and the prism of received history.
What I should passover is this:
"Pope Francis pressed what lately has been an urgent concern of his papacy — the present-day martyrdom of Christians in parts of the Middle East, Africa, and elsewhere, and decried what he called the ‘‘complicit silence’’ about the killing of Christians. Francis will celebrate Easter vigil Mass in the Vatican on Saturday night in St. Peter’s Basilica. On Easter Sunday morning, he will celebrate Mass in St. Peter’s Square. Earlier Friday, Francis condemned the attack by Islamic militants on a Kenyan university as an act of ‘‘senseless brutality,’’ and called for those responsible to change their violent ways. The Vatican has fiercely condemned the surge in attacks by Islamic extremists and has urged Muslim religious authorities to preach that Islam doesn’t condone such violence."
That's why it is not Islamists that are doing it.
"‘Multiple’ additional reports emerge of abuse at Bridgewater day care" by Peter Schworm, Globe Staff April 03, 2015
The state’s children’s welfare agency has received “multiple” additional reports of suspected abuse at the Bridgewater day-care center where a student intern is accused of sexually assaulting two young boys, as officials alerted parents in other communities where Kyle Loughlin had interacted with children.
Loughlin, 21, who was studying early childhood education at Bridgewater State University, worked at a campus day-care facility licensed to care for 30 children. According to police, he confessed this week to abusing the boys, who are 4 and 5 years old.
The day-care center, operated by the university, has come under scrutiny for its response to concerns raised about Loughlin’s behavior in recent weeks. A spokeswoman confirmed Friday that the school had notified state authorities that Loughlin may have abused other children.
“Parents have spoken to our police department as well as care-based areas of the campus to help them determine how to help their children,” said the spokeswoman, Eva Gaffney.
The Department of Children and Families declined to say how many reports have been filed.
The director of the facility, Judith Ritacco, has been placed on paid administrative leave as officials investigate her handling of the matter. In the weeks leading up to Loughlin’s arrest, teachers told Ritacco they were troubled by his conduct toward the two alleged victims, but she downplayed their concerns, police records indicate.
After a parent reported her fears that Loughlin had abused her son, Ritacco initially sought to handle the matter internally before notifying campus police the next day, according to the records.
The state’s Department of Early Education and Care froze enrollment at the center, the center was closed Friday and will remain closed next week. The center must appoint an interim director in Ritacco’s absence, retrain staff on mandated reporting requirements, and review its intern policy to make sure students are directly supervised at all times.
Who can ever feel safe leaving their child with strangers? Is this also part of the family-destroying agenda, so that perverts can have access to all our kids?
Loughlin previously worked at a YMCA camp in Hopkinton and at elementary schools in Sherborn and Bridgewater. On Thursday, the MetroWest YMCA notified parents that Loughlin was a counselor at the Hopkinton Summer Day Camp in 2010, 2012, 2013, and 2014.
I've already detailed my experiences at summer camp here, and I never thought anything of it.
School officials, working with police, have found no evidence that Loughlin’s behavior raised any concerns. He never had unsupervised access to children, Sherborn Superintendent Steven Bliss said.
“Our investigation has revealed nothing in the way of suspicious activity or reported concerns thus far,” he wrote....
I'm blissfully ending this piece.

"Black box adds to signs that copilot deliberately crashed plane" by Anthony Faiola, Washington Post April 04, 2015
BERLIN — The copilot of Germanwings Flight 9525 used the onboard autopilot to put the plane into a descent and repeatedly increase the speed of the Airbus A320 as it headed straight for a mountainside, according to an initial assessment of data recovered from the aircraft’s second black box.
That's total crap. Computers fly most planes, and remote control compensation would have taken over detecting such things. This is a real big pile, folks.
The readings, announced by French investigators on Friday, appeared to add to the growing body of evidence, and although the device found Thursday was badly charred from fire, its condition, officials said, still provided hope for substantial data retrieval.
They are supposed to be fireproof!
Yet even the initial information from the recorder seemed to confirm evidence that Lubitz actively endeavored to crash the plane, adding to a picture of a troubled man who may have committed premeditated mass murder on the March 24 flight from Barcelona to Düsseldorf....
Continue to follow this stream of BS is crazy.
UPDATE: Just had a metamorphosis.
"A helicopter crashed outside Kuala Lumpur on Saturday, killing all six people on board, including a Malaysian lawmaker who was a former ambassador to the United States. The copter crashed and burst into flames while flying back from northern Kuantan town, the Department of Civil Aviation said. Jamaluddin Jarjis, who was Malaysia’s ambassador to the United States from 2009 to 2012, was among those on board."
Who wanted him dead, and why?

"Chilly shift to chase away Saturday’s taste of spring" by Alyssa Creamer, Globe Correspondent April 04, 2015
Unseasonably cold overnight temperatures were expected to be the prelude to an Easter Sunday dawning with sunny skies that forecasters predict will darken throughout the day — and may even be capped with a bit of snow, according to the National Weather Service.
That explains the frozen ground and the cacophony of birds screeching this morning. They are all like WTF? They swooped down yesterday and were pecking at bare ground, skittering here and there with a puzzled look about them.
Citing seesaw-like switches in this weekend’s weather patterns, meteorologist Kim Buttrick quipped that the weather was “doing the bunny hop, the climate bunny hop.” Saturday’s “relative warmth,” with highs in the mid-40s to low 50s statewide, was expected to cool during gusty overnight hours to the low 20s to 30s, she said.
Yeah, it's all funny. Now give us your carbon tax payment!
While Sunday will start off sunny and temperatures are forecast to hit the low 40s to 50s, Buttrick advises people to take umbrellas and rain jackets along on outings. The forecast calls for clouds to increase in the afternoon, and precipitation is possible between 2 p.m. and after 5 p.m. in Massachusetts.
Wh.... Wha.... What kind of precipitation (I almost afraid of the answer)?
Then, the weekend’s final plummet: Sunday is expected to end with temperatures falling to the low 20s to 30s once again and a chance of a cold rain — or even less than an inch of snow in northern areas — looming over Monday’s morning commute.
I know it will melt quick and we have had snowstorms in April before; however....
“It’s all temperature dependent. With any rain there could be some freezing, so caution should be heeded for all travelers,”Buttrick said, but she added, temperatures Monday are expected to jump back up to a more seasonable mid-40s to mid-50s.
They are supposed to be in the mid 50s to 60s by now (blog editor is shaking his head).
At least the South is.... yeah, happy frikkin' Easter.
Let's see how long it takes them to forget the cold hard facts.
"A Billerica waste-hauling company has paid $62,500 to settle claims that it illegally dumped multiple loads of construction and demolition waste at an unauthorized site in Methuen. Attorney General Maura Healey said W.L. French Excavating Corp. violated the state’s solid waste-disposal laws by dumping 29 loads of waste, including concrete, bricks, and asphalt. A separate complaint was filed against New Hampshire-based waste-removal company Gigs LLC for allegedly dumping more than 244 loads of construction and demolition debris at the Methuen site. That complaint seeks civil penalties along with a permanent injunction requiring the company to properly dispose of the illegally dumped waste (AP)."
Wasn't a good Gig after all, huh?
"There seems to be a new attitude of open disregard for the disastrous effects that they are causing to the environment, the economy, or anything else, as they rush to either satisfy the inextinguishable greed of hyper-rich psychopaths... --MORE--"
It's not just their states or party; it's here in blue Ma$$achu$etts, too.
Time to get outta here....
