‘Speaking to an over-capacity crowd on Tuesday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he was ‘deeply humbled’ to plead his case to Congress that his country is facing an existential crisis from a nuclear-empowered Iran.
He thanked Congress for supporting Israel ‘year after year, decade after decade. I know that no matter on which side of the audience you sit, you stand with Israel.’
That was followed by deafening applause and shouts. Republicans stood. Democrats largely sat.
No member of the Obama administration attended the speech, which was interrupted by applause 41 times – many of them accompanied by standing ovations.
‘The greatest threat against the world is the marriage of militant Islam with nuclear weapons,’ Netanyahu warned.’
‘Iran must commit to a verifiable freeze of at least 10 years on sensitive nuclear activity for a landmark atomic deal to be reached, but the odds are still against sealing a final agreement, U.S. President Barack Obama told Reuters on Monday.
Interviewed at the White House, Obama moved to dial back tensions over Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s planned speech to Congress on Tuesday opposing the Iran deal, saying it was a distraction that would not be “permanently destructive” to U.S. Israeli ties.
But he strongly criticized Netanyahu’s stance and stressed there was a “substantial disagreement” between them over how to achieve their shared goal of preventing Israel’s arch foe from acquiring nuclear weapons.’
‘The United States and Israel made public protestations of enduring friendship on Monday even as acrimony simmered over plans by the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, to voice his objections to US-led efforts to strike a diplomatic deal with Iran over its nuclear programme in a speech to Congress on Tuesday.
Mr Netanyahu told a meeting of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) that he felt compelled to speak up about the efforts to reach a deal with Iran because the “existence” of Israel is at stake. But he simultaneously denied his intention was to show any disrespect to President Barack Obama.
“Iran envelops the entire world with its tentacles of terror,” Mr Netanyahu said. “As prime minister of Israel, I have a moral obligation to speak up in the face of these dangers while there’s still time to avert them.”‘
‘US Secretary of State John Kerry has offered a staunch defense of Israel at the annual session of the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva.
Addressing the session on Monday, the top US diplomat urged UN members to end what he described as a “biased” focus on Israel.
“The HCR’s obsession with Israel risks undermining the credibility of the entire organization,” Kerry said at the opening of the council.
“We will oppose any group within the UN system (attempting) to regularly and arbitrarily de-legitimise Israel,” he added.’
‘Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) helped kick off a prominent pro-Israel lobbying group’s annual event in Washington on Sunday by threatening to cut funding to the United Nations.
“All the money that goes in to support the State Department comes through my committee,” Graham said kicking off the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s (AIPAC) opening session, according to Bloomberg.
“I’m gonna put the United Nations on notice,” said Graham, a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, adding that he would go after its funding if the organization “marginalized” Israel, the news service added.’

David Icke takes the manipulation of the human race and the nature of reality to still new levels of understanding and he calls for humanity to rise from its knees and take back the world from the sinister network of families and non-human entities that covertly control us from cradle to grave.
David has moved the global cutting edge so many times since his incredible ‘awakening’ in 1990 and here he does it again – and then some.
You cannot read Human Race Get Off Your Knees and be the same person you were when you picked it up. It is life-changing, reality-changing and its information, if acted upon, will set us free.
‘Russia wants to secure a land corridor in eastern Ukraine that could include Mariupol but pro-Moscow rebels may wait until the spring to attack the strategic port city, the US spy chief said Thursday.
Russian President Vladimir Putin’s aim was not to seize all of Ukraine but to carve out territory linking up with the Crimean peninsula, which was annexed by Moscow last year after the fall of a pro-Moscow leader in Kiev, James Clapper told lawmakers.’
‘The assassination of Russian opposition leader and former Deputy Prime Minister Boris Nemtsov yesterday as he crossed a bridge near the Kremlin will surely be well-utilized by Western lapdog media in their ongoing effort to slander Vladimir Putin and Russia.
But any thinking person will know that this professional killing was not carried out by Putin, who has vowed a thorough investigation of the incident. It was likely another in a series of desperate moves by the British MI6, who work for the Crown and the Rothschild-led City of London bankers.
The assassination occurred just three days after Britain announced it would send advisors to train Ukraine’s military, which in recent weeks was routed by Donbass revolutionaries, forcing the Ukrainian regime into signing the Minsk Peace Agreement.’
‘Climate change was a key driver of the Syrian uprising, according to research which warns that global warming is likely to unleash more wars in the coming decades, with Eastern Mediterranean countries such as Jordan and Lebanon particularly at risk.
Experts have long predicted that climate change will be a major source of conflict as drought and rising temperatures hurt agriculture, putting a further strain on resources in already unstable regimes.
But the Syria conflict is the first war that scientists have explicitly linked to climate change. Researchers say that global warming intensified the region’s worst-ever drought, pushing the country into civil war by destroying agriculture and forcing an exodus to cities already straining from poverty, an influx of refugees from war-torn Iraq next door and poor government, the report finds.’
‘It’s evident where the British State-Funded BBC got their talking points from in this interview. When they’re spewing exactly the same line as Western governments, is it any wonder that their legitimacy is constantly questioned?
The BBC tries to portray Syria’s uprising as peaceful, yet it is evident that there was no such peace as snipers and trouble makers were around since almost day-one of the ‘Arab Spring‘ reaching Syrian territory. A foreign terrorist army has been invading Syria for years now, and an attempt to frame these ‘rebels’ as ‘moderates’ has all but collapsed with the rise of ISIS.’
Legendary CIA officer Ray McGovern returns to the show. Ray will be chatting about how Russia and Vladimir Putin might respond to the constant provocation by Western intelligence agencies.
Jimmy Kimmel is a late night chat show host on ABC. In his monologue yesterday, he roundly attacked and mocked, anyone who questions the safety of vaccines. Richie will be chatting with Laura LaRue, Jefferey Jaxen and Tanners Dad, Tim Welsh, all of whom have been censored because of their opinions on this subject.

‘Except for the machine guns and guard towers, the al-Hair high-security prison looks remarkably like a hotel — especially the conjugal-visit wing.
Beyond a heavy iron gate, its bars painted a cheerful lavender, a red carpet stretches the length of a long hallway, where each of the 38 private cells has a queen-size bed, a fridge, a television and a shower.
Here, just around the corner from the prison ATM, married inmates are allowed to spend three to five private hours with their wives at least once a month, with fresh linens and tea and sweets on the nightstand.’
‘Intelligence thought to have been derived by torture in Saudi Arabia helped to foil a terror attack on UK soil, it has emerged. Reflecting on the revelation, the ex-head of MI6 said torturing terror suspects produces “useful information.”
In his first interview since stepping down as MI6 chief, Sir John Sawers made the controversial statement to the BBC.
He said UK security services refrain from engaging in torture because it breaches British values. But he argued torture can be effective in the short term.’
‘Sheen’s appearance came in support of activists involved with the ‘People’s March for the NHS’, as one of a series of events planned all over the UK in protest at NHS privatisation.
He asked those assembled: “What sort of society do we want to be? It is a choice. Do we want to be a society that is fractured, divided, disconnected, mistrustful of its own people – that sees people as commodities, instruments of profit? Or do we want to be a society where all are equal in value, and that value is not purely a monetary one?”
“We do not turn our backs on those facing hard times. We do not exploit their weaknesses – because ‘they’ are us. If not now, then at some point in the future.”‘
‘Council chiefs, social workers and teachers who fail to act upon suspicions of child abuse face five years in prison to help “eradicate the culture of denial”, David Cameron will announce.
The Prime Minister will warn those who turn a blind eye to child sexual abuse out of a “warped sense of political correctness” that they face criminal prosecution in the wake of the Rotherham grooming scandal.
Police forces will be ordered to treat the threat child sexual abuse as a “national threat” equivalent to terrorism and organised crime.’
‘More than 300 children and young people were groomed and sexually exploited by gangs in Oxfordshire in the last 15 years, on the watch of a councillor related to David Cameron’s election team in Witney.
The “brutal” report will slam police and social services for “turning a blind eye” and failing to protect young girls in the county from violent abuse, torture and enslavement – despite compelling evidence they were in danger.
Now David Cameron could be dragged into the scandal, after the Political Scrapbook blog revealed the councillor at the centre of the report is related to a key member of the Tory leader’s campaign team.
After the police investigation revealed the scale and brutality of the abuse, Cllr Chapman was promoted to a newly created job on the council’s cabinet, taking charge of “policy coordination”.’
‘Former German politician Sebastian Edathy has confessed in court to using his official work laptop to download pornographic videos and images of children from the Internet. He was fined 5,000 euros.
Following Edathy’s admission, the Verden District Court in the German state of Lower Saxony on Monday handed the former Social Democrats (SPD) deputy a fine of 5,000 euros ($5,600), bringing the trial to an end.
In order to avoid conviction, chief prosecutor Thomas Klinge had demanded a credible confession of guilt.’
‘England international Adam Johnson has been suspended by his club Sunderland after being arrested on suspicion of having sex with a 15-year-old girl.
The Sunderland winger was questioned by police after three unmarked police cars and a van arrived at his £1.85 million house early on Monday morning. The former Middlesbrough and Manchester City player, who has 12 caps for England, was in custody on Monday afternoon but has since been bailed by Durham Police.’
‘As unbelievable as it sounds, the Drug Enforcement Agency has come up with the most ridiculous argument against marijuana legalization yet. You see, the State of Utah is considering a bill that would recognize the rights of patients with certain debilitating conditions to use medical marijuana – or, more accurately, to use marijuana medically.
The bill specifically promotes the use of edible forms of the plant, preferring it to smoking. This is, of course, fine for most who want to use the herb for medicine. But the DEA is freaking out…
That’s not surprising, since the bulk of DEA revenue is justified by marijuana entrapment and arrests.
If the bill passes, the DEA warns, the state’s wildlife may start to “cultivate a taste” for the herb. If this happens, they say that animals like rabbits – little bunny rabbits – might start to lose their natural inhibitions and fears of humans. This, in turn, could result in “an all time high” of animals, such as rabbits, losing their lives to humans.’
The Saudi Arabian blogger sentenced to 1,000 lashes could now face the death penalty, his wife has revealed.
Raif Badawi hit headlines earlier this year when he was handed the sentence for supposedly insulting Islam…
…Yesterday Ensaf Haidar, wife of the father-of-three, said her country’s criminal courts want him to undergo a retrial for apostasy.
She said the ‘dangerous information’ had come from ‘official sources’ inside the conservative kingdom. If found guilty he could face the death penalty.’

‘Community Rights educator Paul Cienfuegos explains how “We The People” are exercising the authority to govern ourselves and dismantle corporate rule. When small farmers in rural Pennsylvania wanted to say “no” to a corporate factory farm coming into their community, they learned they couldn’t, because it would violate the corporation’s “rights” and state pre-emption laws. So they did something technically illegal – their town passed an innovative ordinance banning corporate factory farming.
It worked! The corporation left town. Pittsburgh upshifted the approach: Rather than define what we don’t want, define what we DO want. Their “Right to Water” stopped natural gas fracking in the city. Ordinances like this have been passed in over 150 communities in 9 states.’
‘I don’t know about you but the schism between truth and lies seems to be widening pretty drastically lately with a lot of confusion and disorientation sewn into the mix.
Just recently I’ve seen friends facing personal upheavals, con jobs, personal attacks from very strange quarters, new and very revealing understandings of personal perspectives and relationships, and just about everything, for myself as well.
It’s like we’re viewing the perceived world as being fractured into shards of broken off new perspectives to be grasped and understood, making the big picture that much more lucid.
If we connect the dots.’
‘Glasses might be helpful for improved vision, but a new type are being tested that allow wearers to be invisible in unwanted photographs.
Invisibility Glasses by AVG, a software security company, were designed in a bid to help protect people’s online identities in the digital age.
With the increased use of cell phone cameras in public, the glasses makes it difficult to capture a person’s identity in facial recognition software, for example the kind used on Facebook.’
‘After detecting what has been described as a “sudden spike in temperature,” a 20-year-old weather satellite used by the US military exploded, sending dozens of chunks of debris hurtling into Earth’s orbit.
According to the US Air Force, the ageing Defense Meteorological Satellite Program Flight 13 (DMSP-F13) was said to have suffered a “catastrophic event” and exploded into 43 unsalvageable pieces.
CelesTrak, a civilian company, was the first to notice the explosion of the DMSP unit, which the Air Force then confirmed was lost.’
‘Fox News issued a mea culpa for one of anchor Bill O’Reilly’s too-good-to-be-true stories ‒ but not for all his anecdotes that critics complain are fake. The controversial talk show host has been under fire for recollections of his reporting career.
In his 2013 book, ‘Keep It Pithy’, O’Reilly wrote, “I’ve seen soldiers gun down unarmed civilians in Latin America, Irish terrorists kill and maim their fellow citizens in Belfast with bombs.”
Asked about O’Reilly’s statements Friday, a Fox News spokesman told the Washington Post that O’Reilly was not an eyewitness to any bombings or injuries in Northern Ireland. Instead, he was shown photos of bombings by Protestant police officers.’
‘Recent reporting on illegal tax evasion by the world’s second largest bank, HSBC, opens a window onto the pivotal role of Western banks in facilitating organised crime, drug-trafficking and Islamist terrorism. Governments know this, but they are powerless to act, not just because they’ve been bought by the banks: but because criminal and terror financing is integral to global capitalism. Now one whistleblower who uncovered an estimated billion pounds worth of HSBC fraud in Britain, suppressed by the British media, is preparing a prosecution that could blow wide open the true scale of criminal corruption in the world’s finance capital.’
‘The chairwoman of the BBC Trust is facing calls to sever ties with HSBC after it was revealed that she earns £10,000 a day from the scandal-ridden global banking giant.
Rona Fairhead, who was questioned by MPs from the Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee on Monday, has worked for the bank in a variety of roles including as a non-executive director, earning hundreds of thousands of pounds in the process.
Last year she earned over £500,000 from HSBC – a figure which dwarfs her £110,000 salary from the BBC, for which she works a three-day week.’
‘The National Vaccine Information Center has issued an alert for Texans to help stop forced vaccination and government coercion in their home state. A total of nine bills are currently pending in the Texas state legislature that threaten medical choice and fundamental human rights.
These laws are the extension of the current wave of vaccine hysteria sweeping America thanks to an aggressive new push toward medical fascism by the mainstream media.
These bills blatantly violate the American Medical Association’s published Code of Ethics which require informed consent for all medical interventions. But medical extremism in America today is not bound by anything resembling medical ethics, and if these Texas lawmakers get their way, every person living in Texas will be tracked like dogs with a government-run vaccine status database that will almost certainly be used to conduct house-to-house SWAT raids and arrests of those who refuse to be vaccinated.’
‘Major US news media have presented a grossly distorted and misleading interpretation of vaccines and their relationship to public health since early January. These journalistic organs have suggested the recent measles outbreak in the Western US has been a crisis of monumental proportions.
This flagrant and cynical sensationalism has become a foundation for intense advocacy on behalf of the pharmaceutical corporate and regulatory cartel targeting patient informed consent—a founding principal of modern medical practice and personal freedom.
Keeping in mind the close to 300 vaccine products now in the pharmaceutical industry’s pipeline, closer analysis of “measles outbreak” press coverage suggests a conscious effort by corporate news media to virtually banish such notions and practices from the public mind. A news media dependent on over $1 billion in advertising dollars from big pharma must almost by necessity indulge their clients’ broader agenda.’
‘In a stunning demonstration of demeaning hate speech targeting children who have suffered brain damage from vaccines, comedian Jimmy Kimmel unleashed a satire comedy hit piece that, fifty years ago, would have almost certainly seen Kimmel making fun of black people. Twenty years ago, he would have been making fun of gay people. But today, in 2015, Jimmy Kimmel directs his ignorance, bigotry and demeaning hate speech toward vaccine-damaged children who are now labeled “anti-vaxxers.”‘
‘Per a Freedom of Information Act Request lawsuit filed by Vice News, the Department of Defense has released a report on the damaging effects of Edward Snowden’s 2013 NSA leaks.
The only problem? It’s redacted. Entirely. Not a crumb of evidence was present in the “evidence” the government released.
The “assessment” is made up of multiple reports collectively over 100 pages long and was released by the Defense Intelligence Agency, a wing of the Department of Defense. It was made by two dozen DIA analysts and is fully blocked out, save for several headings.’
‘Those in charge of the nation’s jails and prisons have found a way to make some money off the backs of those who can often least afford it—the families of inmates.
Telecommunications companies, last seen making huge profits off phone service for inmates, have had to find a new revenue stream since the Federal Communications Commission capped most jail phone rates. Now they’re installing video visitation systems at jails and prisons across the country, charging huge fees for their use and splitting the profits with the facility.’
‘A million women were raped by Allied soldiers in Germany in the immediate aftermath of World War II, a new books claims.
‘When The Soldiers Came,’ by historian Miriam Gebhardt, is hailed as the definitive account of the treatment meted out to the defeated women of Nazi Germany which they remained silent about for decades out of shame and humiliaton.
‘At the very least 860,000 women and girls – and also men and young boys – were raped by the occupying Allied soldiers and their helpers. It happened everywhere,’ begins the book.’
‘Eating nuts and peanuts reduces the risk of suffering a heart attack or stroke, a new study claims.
Researchers found they were linked with a reduced risk of death from heart disease among people on low incomes.
And they believe their findings suggest peanuts may be a cost-effective measure to improve cardiovascular health because they are so cheap. However experts cautioned today that salt-covered nuts would not have the same health benefits.’
‘According to court documents obtained by BuzzFeed’s Stephanie McNeal, the city of Cleveland, Ohio is claiming that 12-year-old Tamir Rice’s death — as well as the pain and suffering caused to his family by it — was his own fault.
Tamir Rice was shot and killed while playing with a replica gun in a park last November. Rice had been playing with the replica in the park when rookie Officer Timothy Loehmann and his partner pulled up in a police cruiser and, within two seconds, shot him dead.
The incident was captured on video, but neither Officer Loehmann nor his partner knew that when they gave investigators their initial statements, in which they claimed that Rice was with a group of young boys and was waving the gun around with the intention of shooting someone.’
‘This is a video taken on February 26th, 2015 where former state prosecutor Helen Kelly testified to the Federal Reserve Board at the Federal Reserve Bank in Los Angeles, California. During the special public hearing Mrs. Kelly called for the arrest of the heads of One West Bank and the revocation of the bank’s charter. She demanded that the Federal Reserve Board deny the merger of One West Bank with CIT Group. She chastised the entire financial community for its mass and rampant corruption that has spread like the Ebola virus.’
‘He is better known as the hapless, doughnut-obsessed safety officer at Springfield nuclear power plant, but it appears that Homer Simpson may have outwitted some of the brightest minds on the planet.
The author of a book looking at the maths hidden within episodes of the Simpsons has discovered that Homer may have predicted the mass of the Higgs boson 14 years before physicists discovered the particle at the Large Hadron Collider in Cern.
Dr Simon Singh, a physicist and author, found the solution written on a blackboard in front of Homer during a 1998 episode of the long running cartoon.’
‘Televangelist Pat Robertson said on Monday that people who smoked marijuana, used cocaine or consumed alcohol had been enslaved by vegetables.
“God gave you and me as human beings authority, he gave us dominion over everything on this Earth,” the TV preacher explained on Monday’s 700 Club. “Over all the animals, all the snakes, all the birds, all the plants, all the vegetables.”
“Cocaine is the product of a vegetable, alcohol is the product of a vegetable, marijuana is a vegetable,” he continued. “And yet, people are enslaved to vegetables. And you were made in the image of God. God made you in his image to reign and rule with him. He gave you incredible authority.”’
‘There was once a time when all dirty dishes needed to be cleaned by hand. Warm water, soap, scrubbing — all necessary. Then came the all-powerful dishwasher, a near necessity in American homes and food establishments. Small appliances like the microwave, toaster oven, blender and electric mixer have all made kitchen tasks unarguably easier, but with technology advancing at an unprecedent rapid rate, how long until inventions totally change the way we prepare food?
IBM’s Watson, a robot who calls the East Village of Manhattan home, may not need food to survive, but this artificially intelligent machine is equipped to feed the masses.
With Cognitive Cooking, the technology company has developed a food truck where a computer does the work. Chefs can say goodbye to occupational hazards like cuts and burns — programmming is the new cheffing with this technology.’
‘People cannot think clearly when they are afraid. As numerous studies have shown, fear is the enemy of reason. It distorts emotions and perceptions, and often leads to poor decisions. For people who have suffered trauma, fear messages can sometimes trigger uncontrollable flight-or-fight responses with dangerous ramifications.
Yet over time, many interlocking aspects of our society have become increasingly sophisticated at communicating messages and information that produce fear responses. Advertising, political ads, news coverage and social media all send the constant message that people should be afraid—very afraid.’
‘Imagine this scenario: The following is a Public Service Announcement by the New York Department of Environmental Conservation, Division of Water, July 4, 2015: Because of low water levels in state reservoirs, the Division of Water proclaims a statewide water-rationing program. Starting next month, on August 1st, 2015, water service will turn off at 1:00 P.M. on a daily basis for an indeterminate period of time. Service will return the following morning.
Now, imagine a city the size of the State of New York with its 20 million people subjected to the same water-rationing plan. As it happens, São Paulo, capital city of Brazil, home to 20 million, is such a city. The water is turned off every day at 1:00 P.M., as reported by Donna Bowater.’
‘An audio recording newly released by an Egyptian TV station shows that the United Arab Emirates (UAE) helped a military coup in Egypt which led to the ouster of the first freely-elected President Mohamed Morsi and the coming to power of Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi as the new president.
The leak by Egypt’s Mekameleen TV, believed to date back to January 14, shows how the UAE supported and funded the military coup in the African country in 2013.
A part of the audio reveals that Sisi’s office manager, General Abbas Kamil, asks UAE Minister of State Sultan Al-Jaber to provide the Egyptian army with new funds.’
‘Ukraine’s parliament has commenced debating a reforms package required by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) as a prerequisite for a multi-billion-dollar aid package.
The parliamentary debate over the IMF aid package, required to stop the country from falling into bankruptcy, began on Monday.
The proposed reform package includes severe public spending cuts, an increase in gas prices, and the implementation of measures aimed at battling endemic corruption.’
‘The Libyan parliament speaker has appointed retired General Khalifa Haftar as the country’s new army chief.
“I’ve chosen Major General Khalifa Belgacem Haftar for the post of commander-in-chief of the army after promoting him to the rank of lieutenant general,” said Aguila Salah, the speaker of Libya’s internationally recognized parliament, on Monday.
Salah added that the general will be sworn in before the parliament in order to officially assume the position of the general commander of Libya’s armed forces.’
