Fox News hosts mock and chastise citizens for filming the police

Megyn Kelly and Bill O’Reilly.
It is helpful to examine how the American media subtly influences audiences toward tolerating oppression when they should be resisting it. Illustrating this point, two major cable news hosts devoted airtime toward denigrating citizen activists' efforts to hold the government accountable.

The topic of discussion earlier this week on Fox News' The O'Reilly Factor was the subject of filming police officers during on-the job duties. Or, as host Bill O'Reilly describes it, "spying on the police."

Mr. O'Reilly and guest commentator Megyn Kelly proceeded to attempt to marginalize a group known as Cop Block, which has dedicated a great deal of effort toward seeking accountability among police officers through the use of cameras.

The two hosts showed nothing but contempt toward the concept of filming police and the individuals who spend effort to do it.

"There's enough stress on police, without these clowns chasing them around," Mr. O'Reilly sneered.

"You're riding down the road, trying to do your job, suddenly, its like, Paul Bunyan is after me!!" Ms. Kelly mocked, in reference to a clip of an activist who had a beard.

The loud-mouthed host shared the objection to the Texas activist's appearance, saying, "the guy with a beard, he looks like a biker."

Social Media is neutralizing Israeli propaganda: Israel's crumbling media war

© MSNBC
Israeli propaganda has hit a new low. While the world was still trying to come to terms with the mass deaths in Shejaiya, Benjamin Netanyahu went on CNN to state that Hamas uses the "telegenically dead" to further "their cause." He added that for Hamas: "The more the dead, the better." Even while Netanyahu followed the propaganda script, which is to first show sympathy and express remorse, by reducing dead Palestinians to a photo-op he showed how his own mind works.

There is a standard script for how to deal with Palestinian casualties. After Israel killed four boys on the Gaza beach on July 16, the U.S. establishment media fell in line behind Israel's PR framework: acknowledge the tragedy but blame Hamas. This is exactly what Israeli spokesperson Mark Regev said on Channel 4 News when grilled by the anchor Jon Snow. It is also how the U.S. State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki responded, using the same word-for-word talking points.

This framework, developed in 2009, can be found in The Israel Project's 2009 Global Language Dictionary. The Orwellian manual provides a detailed outline on how to "communicate effectively in support of Israel."

One of its first instructions is that pro-Israeli propagandists need to show empathy. The manual insists that they should "show empathy for BOTH sides" (caps in original) as a way of gaining credibility and trust. To make sure that the point is understood, the manual repeats again (in bold, and underlined this time) the instruction "use Empathy" - the suggestion being that empathy is an important tool to be used in the propaganda war.


Comment: It's very revealing of the state of the souls of Hasbara foot-soldiers when they have to be instructed on how to demonstrate empathy. And Netanyahu still struggles to show any empathy, which is clearly an alien concept to psychopaths like him.

Irish patients warned 'miracle cure' MMS from US church is bleach

MMS

The controversial MMS product.
A controversial American Church which is coming to Ireland this weekend is promising a "miracle" cure for patients - but it is, in fact, industrial-strength bleach. The Genesis II Church will hold an event in Monkstown in Dublin over the weekend.

On its website it is advertising the event as including access to its "miracle mineral solution" which, it claims, can "remove" a number of serious conditions including cancer, HIV and autism.

However, the product - which is also known as MMS - has been banned in a number of countries including the US and the UK because tests by health and food watchdogs identified it as an "industrial-strength bleach".

Health watchdogs here, contacted by the Irish Examiner newspaper, have also issued warnings.

It is understood that those planning to attend the seminar over the weekend will be asked to pay a €295 compulsory donation. The church has a number of Irish members.

The church has insisted that events this weekend will focus on a "water purification" seminar - but its website states otherwise.

The church has been the subject of a BBC expose, after which it was banned in a number of countries.

Bloggers debunk photos of 'Russian' air-defense systems in Ukraine


Still from VK.com video/love_donbass
Ukraine continues to concoct evidence of Russia's air defense system's involvement in the Boeing tragedy. This time Ukraine's secret service has published as 'proof' month - old photos of Kiev's own Buk-M missile system, claiming it is Russian.

Although even American officials have privately admitted that there is no evidence that Russia is involved in the Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777 disaster on July 17, Kiev has its own idea.

On July 19, the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) published some indistinct photos on its website, alleging they show Russia secretly withdrawing its Buk-M (NATO designation SA-11) surface-to-air missile system from the conflict zone in Ukraine.

As of Wednesday, July 23, the photos remain on the intelligence service's site.

Comment: Perhaps the military jet was tracking flight MH17 to ensure all went according to plan with this 'false flag' meant to further demonize the Russians, and distract from the Israeli ground offensive in Gaza.

Gabor Maté: Beautiful dream of Israel has become a nightmare

 Israeli strike rise over Gaza City

Smoke and fire from the explosion of an Israeli strike rise over Gaza City, Tuesday, July 22.
Everyone ought to be sad at what the beautiful old dream of Jewish redemption has come to. Everyone ought to grieve the death of innocents.

As a Jewish youngster growing up in Budapest, an infant survivor of the Nazi genocide, I was for years haunted by a question resounding in my brain with such force that sometimes my head would spin: "How was it possible? How could the world have let such horrors happen?"

It was a naïve question, that of a child. I know better now: such is reality. Whether in Vietnam or Rwanda or Syria, humanity stands by either complicitly or unconsciously or helplessly, as it always does. In Gaza today we find ways of justifying the bombing of hospitals, the annihilation of families at dinner, the killing of pre-adolescents playing soccer on a beach.

In Israel-Palestine the powerful party has succeeded in painting itself as the victim, while the ones being killed and maimed become the perpetrators. "They don't care about life," Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says, abetted by the Obamas and Harpers of this world, "we do." Netanyahu, you who with surgical precision slaughter innocents, the young and the old, you who have cruelly blockaded Gaza for years, starving it of necessities, you who deprive Palestinians of more and more of their land, their water, their crops, their trees - you care about life?

There is no understanding Gaza out of context - Hamas rockets or unjustifiable terrorist attacks on civilians - and that context is the longest ongoing ethnic cleansing operation in the recent and present centuries, the ongoing attempt to destroy Palestinian nationhood.

Cleveland driver asked Jesus to take the wheel, hit motorcyclist

© Thedailygrind.com
Usually when someone says "Jesus take the wheel" it's meant to help them through a rough patch in life.

But police say an Indiana woman took the phrase literally on July 11th, when she took her hands off the steering wheel as she was driving.

The Fort Wayne Journal-Gazette reports 25-year-old Prionda Hill told authorities she let go of the wheel because "God told her he would take it from here."

Unfortunately for Anthony Olivery, her car veered off the road and slammed into his motorcycle, throwing him to the ground. Then the car ran over him.

"When I looked at that bumper and looked at that tire, I told myself, today is the day you die," he told the paper.

The accident broke all of Olivery's ribs on his left side, cut his spleen, bruised his kidney and caused severe injuries to his left arm and leg.

An Arizona execution took nearly two hours on Wednesday, and the prisoner's lawyers said he gasped and snorted for an hour.

The execution of Joseph Wood - which Arizona carried out with a lethal-injection it had never before tried - is certain to fan the debate over how U.S. states carry out the death penalty.

U.S. legal child kidnapping at least in the thousands - Child Protection Services criminality uncovered


Congresswoman Nancy Schaefer talking about the Criminality of CPS, before she was found murdered in her home.
Justina Pelletier and her family traveled to Washington D.C. last week to promote "Justina's Law," a bipartisan bill proposed to end medical research on children. She received a standing ovation from members of Congress.

Justina was taken away from her parents by force at the age of 15, and held for over a year as Boston Children's Hospital kept her confined in their psych ward. They disagreed with the family's doctor over her diagnosis, and had the state's "child protection" social service agency seize custody of her away from her parents, against her will and the will of her parents. What ensued was a long legal battle to get their daughter back, that probably only ended positively because her story went viral and was picked up by the national mainstream media. This because her father refused to obey a court-directed gag order and went to the media with their story. Media heavyweights such as Dr. Phil, Mike Huckabee, and Glenn Beck picked up her story.

Here is a plea Justina made herself to Governor Patrick and Judge Johnston just before she was finally released:


Unfortunately, Justina's story is not a unique situation in America today, but it is part of a corrupt system that has grown in power and is now out of control. Justina's story can be retold by families all across America.

How many families have endured similar circumstances: hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands?? No one knows for sure, but based on reports from attorneys who handle these types of cases, it is at least in the thousands, if not much higher. Here are a few cases we have reported on where children were legally seized away from loving parents due to disagreements over medical treatment:

Bacon and beef prices reach all-time high

© Growandbeholdblog.files.wordpress.com
The price of beef and bacon hit its all-time high in the United States in June, according to data released Tuesday by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

In January 1980, when BLS started tracking the price of these commodities, ground chuck cost $1.82 per pound and bacon cost $1.45 per pound. By this June 2014, ground chuck cost $3.91 per pound and bacon cost $6.11 per pound.

A decade ago, in June 2004, a pound of ground chuck cost $2.49, which means that the commodity has increased by 57 percent since then. Bacon has increased by 78.7 percent from the $3.42 it cost in June 2004 to the $6.11 it costs now.

In one month, beef increased from $3.85 in May 2014 to $3.91 in June 2014. Bacon increased from $6.05 in May 2014 to $6.11 in June 2014.

Each month, the BLS employs data collectors to visit thousands of retail stores all over the United States to obtain information on the prices of thousands of items to measure changes for the Consumer Price Index (CPI). The CPI is simply the average change over time in prices paid by consumers for a market basket of goods and services.

Major airlines suspend American and European flights to and from Israel

Seeing red: Passengers check the board for cancelled flights in Ben Gurion Airport.
A number of major US and European airlines are immediately suspending flights to and from Israel after a rocket attack near Ben-Gurion International Airport. US Airways, Lufthansa and Delta are some of the companies grounding their planes.

The decision was taken following a warning from the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA), after a rocket fell in the city of Yehud, which is just five kilometers from the airport, Haaretz reported.

The FAA has ordered US airlines not to fly to or from Ben Gurion Airport "for a period of up to 24 hours." Meanwhile, their European counterparts, the European Air Safety Agency (EASA) says it has issued a 'strong recommendation' to avoid Tel Aviv airport until further notice.

A Delta Boeing 747 from New York was flying over the Mediterranean Sea heading for Tel Aviv on Tuesday when it turned around and flew to Paris instead. Flight 468 had 273 passengers and 17 crew on board.

The Russian airline Transaero also decided to turn back a flight that was bound for Tel Aviv. Flight number 311 was en-route to the Israeli city but instead headed back to Moscow. A spokesman for the company said that Wednesday's flights to Israel have also been cancelled.

US Airways, which has one daily flight from Philadelphia, canceled that flight Tuesday and the return trip from Tel Aviv. It has relocated planes, which are currently at Ben-Gurion airport, according to Haaretz.

Comment: Flights cancelled for one rocket (whose?) near Tel Aviv / no flights cancelled over Gaza. Really? Is the FAA complicit in a high profile international propaganda stunt to influence opinion as to who is the victim in Gaza, knowing the EASA would follow suit? Or is this more false flag to camouflage that the "alleged" Hamas rockets are as absent and ineffective as Hamas claims? Could be both.
