Comment: This is all well and good, but unless they start arresting all the UK elites who are part of the evil pedophilia network, this is but a band aid over a gushing wound of human exploitation in the UK.


Thames Valley police have staged a mass operation involving 150 officers to clamp down on human trafficking across the UK, resulting in 10 arrests.

The force carried out raids at 17 premises in Berkshire, Yorkshire and London at around 10am on Tuesday morning, which freed six victims of human trafficking.

The addresses included three nail salons and three properties in Reading, two nail salons and two properties in Wokingham, one property in West Berkshire, five in London and one nail salon in York.

The raids took place after an 18-month investigation into trafficking, called Operation Rehoboam, which was coordinated by the National Crime Agency, the Metropolitan Police and the North Yorkshire Police.

All the victims were sent to refuge centers set up by the Red Cross and the Salvation army.

Providing for the people: Russia extends discount program for individuals who trade in old vehicles for new

Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has extended 'cash for clunkers' car disposal program that provides discount for new vehicles through 2015 with an extra $80 million, as he says it has significantly helped domestic car makers.

"The Resolution extends the utilization program in 2015 - it has twice proved its effectiveness, supported the sales of companies that produce cars in Russia," said Medvedev as quoted by TASS."We have a suggestion to allocate subsidies to repay part of the cost of buying new cars."

The government will also extend the co-financing program for regions to purchase liquid petroleum gas powered vehicles with a further three billion rubles.

The disposal program provides a discount of up to $5,500 on a new car after scrapping an energy inefficient old one. The trade-in service (replacing the old car with an additional payment) provides a discount of up to $5,700.

The move comes at tough times for the Russia's car market that is suffering due to the weakening ruble, and a withdrawal of foreigner car makers.

A man imprisoned in Mississippi and a woman in Michigan are charged with the production and distribution of child pornography via text message.

David Rhyne, 33, currently incarcerated in the East Mississippi Correctional Facility in Meridian, and Stephanie Rascoe, 44, a resident of Ecorse, Michigan, are accused of taking and texting illegal images of a two-year-old child by the Mississippi Attorney General's office.

Investigators with the Ecorse and Dearborn Michigan Police Departments Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force transferred a case involving a complaint of illegal images taken of a two year old child to the Mississippi Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force under the Mississippi Attorney General's Office. This led to federal warrants being served on and Rhyne and Rasco.

Comment: Stephanie Rascoe was the occasional baby-sitter of the poor, two year old child, and David Rhyne is in prison for charges of sexual battery. This is a living nightmare.

Iraq War: Anniversary of a Fever Dream

TEHRAN - March 19 marks the anniversary of the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003.
The day is also intended as an antiwar intervention into the capitals of war-making: Washington, London, Canberra and Warsaw.

In the name of pre-empting a threat, the illegal invasion consisted of 21 days of major combat operations, in which a combined force of troops from the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia and Poland went after Iraq's weapons of mass destruction that were never there. Still, that didn't stop the invaders from destroying Iraq's civilization, killing and wounding over one million civilians, and making millions more refugees.

Such a catastrophic delusion should have been a cautionary tale - at least for the capital of war-making Washington. Far from it, years later the warmongers brought the same level of destruction and misery to other sovereign nations such as Libya and Syria. The outcome has been even more regional instability and a freer hand for the kind of Sunni radicals and terrorists who continue to threaten and attack everything and everyone, even in the heart of the European continent.

The clay cast of the bust depicting Putin as a Roman Emperor is in the workshop of St Petersburg's Academy of Arts.
The St Petersburg's Cossack community has promised to mark Russia's anniversary of the allied victory over the Nazis by unveiling a bronze bust of Russian president Vladimir Putin depicted as a Roman emperor.

Andrey Polyakov, the leader of the St Petersburg Cossack group Irbis - a popular organisation which stresses the importance of traditional Slavic values and military valor - told local press the planned sculpture will be cast from bronze and installed near the underground station of Parnas in north St Petersburg.

According to Polyakov the idea to honour Putin with a monument arose a year ago when pro-Russian forces, backed by Putin, seized the Crimean peninsula from Ukraine.

'Exclusively For White People' signs appear on businesses in Austin,Texas

Racially charged stickers have flooded the city of Austin, Texas leaving residents and business owners in awe, with some considering it racist, while others called it a joke.

Having the city's logo on them, the stickers read: "exclusively for white people," and were put on at least six businesses.

The racist remarks were discovered by passersby, employees and business owners.

Brianna Smith was walking by a store this week when she spotted one.

"This just goes to show racism is very much alive TODAY," she wrote on her Facebook page. "And by this being sponsored by the city of Austin absolutely DISGUST me."

At a local bake shop, April Jensen was working and notice something on the front door that read "exclusively for white people," with an offensive message underneath, also having a city logo on it.

"My reaction was basically shock and confusion. I was a little hurt," Jensen said.

Austin Mayor Steve Adler issued a statement, condemning this racist act and denying the city's sponsorship or giving anyone the authority to use its logo.

Government - the beneficent leader of The Group

Image
"A single thought simultaneously held by several people isn't some miracle. The course of history is a process of liberation from that circumstance, and the emerging miracle was one individual thinking his own thoughts. That was the great change. And now people want to reverse it. They want to go back. They want to call it evolution." (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

More and more, education is entraining children to think of themselves as part of a group.

This is one basic way to cut off the consciousness of being an individual and what it really means.

The government, the State, has now become the beneficent leader of The Group, and if you need confirmation, just ask any politician. He'll give you a sound bite or two.

People enmeshed in the current culture don't realize that, as recently as 25 years ago, the promotion of America as One Group played like a faint tune in the far distance.

Now, it's being urged by the State with wall-to-wall rhetoric straight out of some cheesy TV church; and the pastor-hustler is taking in contributions with one hand while doling out bribes with the other.

Only he's got militarized police all over the land and an awesome surveillance apparatus to back him up.

But he loves you. He really cares.

Comment: "What happens to you here is for ever. Understand that in advance. We shall crush you down to the point from which there is no coming back. Things will happen to you from which you could not recover, if you lived a thousand years. Never again will you be capable of ordinary human feeling. Everything will be dead inside you. Never again will you be capable of love, or friendship, or joy of living, or laughter, or curiosity, or courage, or integrity. You will be hollow. We shall squeeze you empty and then we shall fill you with ourselves." George Orwell, 1984

A personal account of life in Sevastopol one year after Crimea re-joined Russia

Image
The last year changed many things in my life, so it will be appropriate to summarize certain intermediate results associated with the changes in Sevastopol borne of the Crimean spring. I decided not to group this in blocks, so I simply write what came to my mind during the attempts to recall what has changed over a year.

1. Crimea stopped being a part of Ukraine and became a part of Russia. I wished for this event for many years, so here my dream simply came true. Those people whose dreams come true must understand very well how this feels like.

2. Ukrainian flags and Ukrainian insignia disappeared from the city. Only very rarely one can meet Ukrainian text or old advertisement banners in Ukrainian. The city speaks Russian and after the cancellation of the obligatory use of Ukrainian, which they previously tried to implant by force, the Ukrainian language simply disappeared because it wasn't needed, even though there is no special ban on the use of Ukrainian - if one wants, one can put banners in Ukrainian, the law permits it. If one wants to speak Ukrainian, one is free to do so. All of these rights are present, but nobody uses them because there is no need to do so.

3. One may now go to a movie theater without fearing the obligatory translation of the movies to Ukrainian in a city where 99% speak Russian. For several years I didn't go watch movies for the language reasons; in the last year I was there more often than in the previous 5 years.

Comment: Quite a different perspective than the one painted by Washington: Washington's policy toward Crimea a denial of reality

School administrators being trained to use interrogation methods on children to keep school-to-prison pipeline flowing

© Tom Chance/Tom Chance/Westend61/Corbis
The school-to-prison pipeline is sending students into the criminal justice system for minor misdemeanours.
Adult interrogation methods do not belong in the classroom, so why are school administrators throughout the United States being trained to use them on their students in order to extract confessions?

John E. Reid & Associates is the largest interrogation trainer in the world and teaches such methods to hundreds of school administrators each year . Last month, members of the Illinois Principals Association, for instance, could register for a "professional development" event on "Investigative Interviewing and Active Persuasion". The School Administrators Association of New York State recently offered a workshop for administrators on this same topic, titled "Are you Sure They Are Telling the Truth"?

These administrators are learning the " Reid Technique ", which relies on "maximization" and "minimization" tactics in order to induce suspects to confess. Minimization focuses on reducing a suspect's feelings of guilt, while maximization is designed to heighten suspect anxiety using confrontation. Both techniques are legal and both are incredibly coercive.

Comment: The police state continues to intrude on school systems, furthering the deterioration of the educational process. While schools were never really about educating the masses, it has become clear that they are little more than indoctrination centers where students have no rights and now live in fear of being abused by police and teachers.

Jon Stewart blasts Senator Mitch McConnell for holding up sex trafficking bill with abortion ban

While he was upset with both Republicans and Democrats on Tuesday night,Daily Show host Jon Stewart was especially angry at Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) for the delay in an anti-sex trafficking bill that had bipartisan support.

As the New York Times reported, the bill would create a fund for sex trafficking victims, but also includes a provision banning the money from being used to pay for abortions.

Stewart knocked Republicans for sneaking the abortion ban into the measure after both parties supported it in committee votes, and argued that McConnell was making a "disingenuous point" when he accused Democrats of delaying the bill for the sake of "left-wing special interest groups."

"The only reason the language is in there is because you're bowing down to right-wing special interests," Stewart raged, climbing over his desk.

But while the GOP had engaged in some "f*ckery," Stewart said, Democrats were "dumbasses" for failing to read the revised version of the bill, which Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) said "you could blame it on staff."

"How about I blame not reading the bill on you?" Stewart responded. "The guy in charge of Senate Democrats, whose last name is literally 'Reid.' How did you not read this bill?"
